Germany Preparing for War Against Russia

Eric Zuesse

According to a report issued on June 6th in German Economic News (Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, or DWN), the German government is preparing to go to war against Russia, and has in draft-form a Bundeswehr report declaring Russia to be an enemy nation. DWN says: “The Russian secret services have apparently thoroughly studied the paper. In advance of the paper’s publication, a harsh note of protest has been sent to Berlin: The head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Russian State Duma, Alexei Puschkow, has posted the Twitter message: ‘The decision of the German government declaring Russia to be an enemy shows Merkel’s subservience to the Obama administration.’”

Back on February 17th, DWN had reported that German Chancellor Merkel “will develop a new military doctrine” declaring, “The ‘annexation’ of Crimea by Russia is the basis for military action against Moscow.” Apparently, that prior report will soon be fulfilled.

Not mentioned in the DWN articles — nor anywhere in Western ‘news’ media — is a crucial fact, that the head of America’s ‘private CIA’ firm Stratfor acknowledged only when addressing a Russian-speaking audience: that (in English) the overthrow of Ukraine’s President in Russia’s neighboring nation of Ukraine during February 2014 was “the most blatant coup in history.”  Extensive video documentation exists demonstrating that it was a coup, and even demonstrating that the Obama Administration had selected Ukraine’s post-coup leader 22 days prior to his being formally appointed by the Ukrainian parliament. Furthermore, the only detailed scholarly study of the evidence that has been performed came to the same conclusion — that it was a U.S. coup. The last month before the coup was incredibly violent, with Obama’s hired fascists attacking the government’s securitly forces brutally: Here is some of the bloodshed from the prior month, on January 21st, then January 22nd, then January 25th. Moreover, immediately after the overthrow, when the EU sent its own investigator into Kiev to report back on how the overthrow had taken place, he too reported that it had been a coup. Subsequently revealed was that the Obama Administration had started preparing the coup inside the U.S. Embassy in Kiev by no later than 1 March 2013 — almost a year prior to the coup. Also, the even earlier preparation for the coup, extending through decades, on the part of CIA-affiliated ‘nonprofit’ or NGO organizations (funded by Western aristocrats and their corporations), laying the groundwork for this coup, has been brilliantly documented at some online sites. None of this information has been widely published — it’s virtually not at all published in the West. Though the potential audience for it might be vast (especially since Western publics pay much of the tab for this operation and yet receive none of the benefits from the resultant looting of Ukraine, which goes all to aristocrats in the U.S. and allied aristocracies), the market in the West for reporting it, is virtually nil, because the market is the West’s news media, and they’ve all (except for a few small ones like this) been taken over by the aristocracy, and serve the aristocracy — not the public (their audiences, whom they’re in business to deceive). The aristocracy’s companies advertise in, and thereby fund, most of those ‘news’ media, and the aristocracy’s governments fund the rest — and the public pays for that, too, not just by being manipulated to vote for the aristocracy’s politicians, but by being taxed to pay what the NGOs and their aristocrats don’t (so the public are buying the weapons etc.). It’s a vast money-funnel from the many, to the few.

Though the transfer of Crimea from Ukraine to Russia is treated by Western ‘news’ media as having been a ‘conquest’ by Russia, and as being Russia’s ‘seizure’ of Crimea, and Russia’s ‘stealing’ Crimea, nothing of the sort is true (and Crimeans had good reason to be terrified of the Obama-coup regime that had just been installed, from which Russia saved Crimeans), but the lie needs to be promulgated in order for the aristocracy’s invasion of Russia to be able to organized and carried out.

Unfortunately, the reason why this U.S coup in Ukraine has still not been reported in the West, is that to make it public to Westerners would jeopardize not only the Western economic sanctions against Russia after Russia accepted the overwhelming decision by Crimeans to separate from the post-coup Ukrainian government, but would also jeopardize the preparations by all of NATO to go to war against Russia: both the sanctions and the invasion would have no basis and no support among Western publics. All of that (the sanctions, and now the pouring of troops and weapons onto and near Russia’s borders for a possible invasion of Russia) would no longer be at all palatable by Western publics, if this history — that it all began by a violent U.S. coup in Ukraine — were to become known before the U.S. and NATO invasion occurs. So it all remains, instead, suppressed in the ‘democratic’ West. 

So: please email this article’s URL address (which is immediately above this article), to friends, so as to spread to them the word, that NATO is preparing an invasion of Russia. There’s no way that the ‘news’ media they see are likely to tell them (until it’s already too late).

    NATO is preparing an invasion of Russia.

    at no point, in either of the dwn articles, is any mention made of ‘an invasion of russia’. do you have a source for this claim? please honor this website by posting factual information.

    • cettel

      No, ‘kimyo’, Germany is merely preparing to defend itself against the invasion that Russia is planning. Now go to bed and get good rest, and don’t worry, because it’ll be the fault of ‘the other side’, so you needn’t be disturbed. But if you really think that way, you should be reading the Washington Post, not Washingtonsblog.

      • kimyo

        you keep claiming that nato is planning to ‘invade russia’. provide your source or retract your claim. you dishonor washington’s blog with silly, non-factual posts.

        the people here are trying to make the world a better place. your national enquirer headlines detract from that mission.

        • tom

          You don’t seem to have read very far in the article. The second paragraph reads:

          ‘Back on February 17th, DWN had reported that German Chancellor Merkel “will develop a new military doctrine” declaring, “The ‘annexation’ of Crimea by Russia is the basis for military action against Moscow.”’

          This reports what DWN, a reputable and credible news source, said. To me, “military action against Moscow” could mean a number of things – but none of them is any better than a plan to invade Russia.

          Can you suggest to us what “military action against Moscow” might mean if not an attack on Russia? Or do you think Germany plans to attack the dozens of Russian military bases scattered all round the world?

          • kimyo

            the notion that nato might ‘invade russia’ simply beggars belief. they lack both the capability and the resolve. they lack support from the citizens of europe.

            ‘military action against moscow’ is so vague as to be meaningless. divining that it means ‘invading russia’ follows from the zuesse school of ‘sy hersh said this’ so ‘he really must have meant that’. sy hersh said what he said, using carefully chosen words which best conveyed his meaning. zuesse’s translation was wrong and deceptive.

            nato, otoh, released a bunch of meaningless bullshit. what’s the value of zuesse’s translation of meaningless bullshit?

            what do i think? the u.s./nato is trying to provoke russia into destroying the aegis systems in poland and romania. the u.s./nato is trying to provoke a nuclear ww3. no one is invading russia, it’s just not necessary.

            Said the FOX , Recognizing the “GRAPES” , “Out of EACH” !!!

          • kimyo

            if indeed they invade, how many casualties will nato suffer in the first week alone?

            10,000? 50,000? whatever the number, it will dwarf the number of soldiers killed in years of action in iraq/afghanistan. whatever the number, the citizens of europe will immediately demand withdrawal.

            the only way we’re going to see footage of an invasion is if it’s been shot on a hollywood soundstage, directed (so to speak) by ben affleck.

            ps: notice that zuesse still fails to provide any source, quote, or context for his claim that nato is ‘planning to invade russia’. zero facts, par for the course for the z-man.

    Stunning what Europe has done to be the little bitches of the world, to their own detriment and quite possibly destruction. I don’t even know what to say anymore but “f*cking madness”. Sure I could analyze it a little deeper but it’s too depressing for me at this moment in time. I gotta figure out how to get thru to my friends and family, they’re all oblivious to this. I’m sure I’m not the only one with this problem.

      It was really quite simple. With a complex history reaching back over 2,000 years, 20th century Europe was a patchwork of large and small nations each with historical relationships of alliance and war. British governments tried to maintain a balance of power on the continent, in order to avoid war whenever possible. But in 1914 the balance of power got seriously out of whack, diplomacy failed, and the nations’ anxiety not to be overrun by a surprise attack caused them all to mobilize – and before anyone knew what was happening, they were at war. Everything that followed was a consequence of that.

      The USA, meanwhile, had occupied one of the only remaining virgin, unexploited continents. It had obtained a free prize of immense lands, with unrivalled resources of animals, fish, timber, crops, minerals, oil and gas. Best of all, it had no rival nations except Canada, which had no chance against it; Mexico, which it deliberately attacked, beat up and robbed of half its territory; and Native Americans (we know what happened to them). So no wars for lucky Americans – not because they were specially virtuous, but because they had killed or defeated everyone who might be a threat.

      So when Europe plunged into a disastrous series of wars, the USA watched, rubbing its hands sanctimoniously – and lent money to everyone who asked for it. Come 1945, everyone owed the USA and nobody had any money to pay. The Americans rejoiced – they had just been given another free continent.

    Merkel like her nemesis in Ankara is a loose canon and one can only imagine what type of compromising evidence the NSA GESTAPO has on this evil GDR spawned wretch who Kohl claimed “could not even use a knife and fork when I fished her out of the pond.” Obviously Kohl (himself a CIA stooge) failed to speculate as to why the CIA would put such a treacherous poisonous hag on his “hook” at the most important moment in recent German history. Either way Urupp is doomed as the Europeons sail blithely on to another German driven World War for their anglozionazi masters in Washing town. Sad… really but no surprises when Mother Russia finally decides to finish the job permanently this time and reduce both Berlin and its owner, Washing town to a permanent state of hardened glass.

    Onward ever faster to the collap$€ that humanity is praying for.

    “The ‘annexation’ of Crimea by Russia is the basis for military action against Moscow.”

    Wow! Well, in that case what about the annexation of East Germany by West Germany? Whereas the people of Crimea voted overwhelmingly to rejoin Russia, in East Germany there was no referendum at all! And of course the argument that Germany had previously been a single nation cannot be used, if you reject the argument that Crimea was part of Russia since before the USA even existed.

    This article is the stuff of X-Files, tinfoil, and imagination.
    World War Two emasculated the German people. Unless the Bundeswehr intends to execute their OPLAN during labor-acceptable hours – and the German ‘workers’ are compensated in a *fair* way for any overtime during this war -German men will not likely don their tactical kit (Capri pants & manbag) to head east.
