Growing The Russia - China New Relationship

Obama, EU fascists now reaping the rewards of CIA financed and engineered coup in Kiev  

NEW EASTERN OUTLOOK
By F. William Engdahl
01/31/2015

While the Obama Administration is preoccupied with keeping an increasingly unhappy EU firm on further economic sanctions against Vladimir Putin’s Russia, Putin is busy outflanking an increasingly desperate Washington. Rather than fixate on the deliberate US and NATO provocations in Ukraine, Russia is deepening its strategic ties with the other Great Eurasian land-power, the Peoples’ Republic of China. Far from Putin going begging to Beijing for money, the two powers are weaving a closer strategic counterweight to an Anglo-American elite gone bonkers as its empire slips from its hands.


Unimportant are all diplomatic declarations by Chinese deputy Prime Ministers and others in recent weeks about how China so deeply respects the unique role of the United States as sole superpower. 

The reality on the ground speaks of a tectonic and well-thought-through change in the geopolitical world order is underway. 



Not only are Russia and China signing gigantic oil and gas agreements that insulate Russia from the negative effects of a potential loss of the EU energy markets in coming months.

Now the two powers have agreed on one of the world’s largest-ever infrastructure projects that will create huge new markets across Eurasia.

Transforming Eurasia

Russia and China have agreed to build a 7,000-kilometer high-speed rail link from Beijing to Moscow, at a cost of $242 billion, almost a quarter trillion dollars, according to the Beijing city government. The journey from Beijing to Moscow would take two days on a route passing through Kazakhstan. It will take take eight to 10 years to build. The rail project is the most ambitious rail infrastructure project in the Eurasian history, even surpassing the Trans-Siberian Railway project across Russia.

The new Beijing-Moscow highspeed rail corridor shown in yellow will transform the economic space of Eurasia.

In October, 2014, China and Russia signed an agreement to build the first leg of the Beijing-Moscow high-speed rail link. That specified that Chinese firms and their Russian partners will construct a 770-km high-speed line connecting Moscow and Kazan, an important metropolis on the Volga River, en route to Beiing.

Then last November as US sanctions and the US-engineered oil price collapse added a new urgency to the project, Alexander Misharin, vice-president at state-owned OAO Russian Railways, said a section would cost $60 billion to reach Russia’s border, and would cut the Beijing-Moscow journey from five days to 30 hours. Misharin at the time compared the new transport network to the Suez Canal “in terms of scale and significance.” In reality, it has the potential to far exceed the Suez Canal as it serves to unify a high-speed transport network integration vast new markets across Eurasia from Beijing to Moscow that draw in some 4.4 billion of the world population.

A close look at the new railway map by German politicians might be useful, in order for them to graphically realize where the future of Germany and of the European Union lies. A hint: it doesn’t lie with a dying American debt-bloated economy that only offers Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment scams to Europe. From Berlin, the four horses atop the historic Brandenburg Gate are symbolically pointed east, to Moscow. Sanctions cut German industry from participation in one of the largest construction projects in the world history. One might ask why?

A Russian Renaissance?

The new Moscow-Beijing rail link is arguably the most significant infrastructure project in Eurasia since the brilliant Russian Railways Minister, later Finance Minister and finally Prime Minister, Count Sergei Witte, built the Trans-Siberian Railway to unify the vast expanse of Russia in the 1890’s.

Witte, a student of the long-forgotten German national economist, Friedrich List, realized the central role that rail and other infrastructure had played in the emergence of Germany after creation of the Customs Union in the 1830s, and of the United States with the construction of the first Transcontinental Railway.

Witte’s economic policies were well on the way to create a genuine economic renaissance within the Russian Empire, with peasant reforms, economic development and other policies that won him the hatred of the City of London and Wall Street. Witte argued to Czar Nicholas II on the eve of World War I that it would be a disaster for Russia to join the British in going to war against Germany. He was right and, symbolically or not, died of a brain tumor just after the Czar was pulled by various intrigues to declare war on Germany.

That disastrous war a century ago, which led to the Western-financed Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, hindered the development of the enormous economic potentials of Russia and Eurasia until the present. That is now undergoing a transformation, a new kind of Russian revolution based on peace and economic stability, ironically under the pressures of the ongoing NATO war, financial and military, against Eurasian integration.

That Eurasian integration, formal via Russia’s Eurasian Economic Union and the Sino-Russian led Shanghai Cooperation Organization, as well as informal via an escalating series of bilateral economic and military cooperation agreements between the two Eurasian Great Powers—Russia and China—is precisely what NATO and the neo-conservative war-hawks of the Obama Administration desperately try to prevent in Ukraine and with the Obama military Asia Pivot against China. The problem, for those poor loveless souls in Washington and Wall Street, is that wars don’t work the way they used to. The world is getting fed up dying in the wars of the One Percent.

WAYNE MADSEN : American Lethal Military Aid To Ukraine Is A Throwback To Iran - Contra Days

Obama criminals doing everything in their power to spark WWIII

STRATEGIC CULTURE FOUNDATION
By Wayne Madsen
02/03/2015

It was inevitable. As calls increased by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and NATO military commander General Philip Breedlove, among others, for lethal military equipment to be shipped by the United States to the putschist regime of Ukraine, a flurry of Ukrainian cargo transports landing at military supply airports in the United States and Europe hearkened back to the days when non-descript transports plied the world’s air routes clandestinely and simultaneously delivering weapons to Iran and Nicaraguan rebel forces.


In a repeat of the Central Intelligence Agency's globe hopping weapons transport cargo planes of the Iran-Contra scandal era and the more recent Libyan rebel supply caper to overthrow Muammar Qaddafi, a Ukrainian Antonov AN-124 (tail number UR-82072) heavy lifter military transport plane, denoted as an "International Cargo Transport" and belonging to the "Antonov Transport Bureau," astonished residents around Belgrade's Nikola Tesla International Airport in Serbia when it landed there on January 28, 2015. 


The Ukrainian plane, the world's largest aircraft, was a rare sight at an airport in a country that generally supports Russia in its conflict with Kiev.

Kerry and Breedlove are talking about commencing an arms shipment by NATO that actually began last year. In September 2014, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko stated that a number of NATO countries agreed to deliver weapons to Ukrainian forces, which consist not only of regular Ukrainian troops but irregular battalions supported by billionaire Ukrainian-Israeli warlord Ihor Kolomoisky consisting of neo-Nazis, U.S. and other private military forces, and ex-Israel Defense Force personnel. At the time of the September 2014 NATO summit in Wales, Ukrainian presidential adviser Yuri Lutsenko said that the United States, France, Poland, Norway and Italy had agreed to supply weapons to Ukraine and Canada later revealed that it had also commenced weapons transfers to the Kiev putschists.

Ukraine's military forces have received so much NATO military aid and assistance and personnel, Russian President Vladimir Putin recently said that the Ukrainian Army is acting as NATO's "foreign legion." There are also credible reports that NATO has supplied the Kiev regime with deadly cluster bombs that are being used against the largely Russian-speaking civilian population of the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine.




The AN-124 that landed in Belgrade appears to have been ferrying weapons from a number of known NATO air terminals used for such purposes. After arriving in Bucharest, Romania on January 23, 2015 from the Italian island of Lampedusa, off the coast of Libya, the aircraft departed on January 23 for New Jersey in the United States. Lampedusa was a major staging base for NATO weapons supplies to Libyan rebels during the Western and Islamist-inspired rebellion against the Qaddafi government. Bucharest has become a major base for NATO military support to Kiev.


On January 25, the Antonov departed Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey for Trondheim, Norway. On January 26, the Ukrainian transport plane left Trondheim for Prestwick Airport, Glasgow, Scotland. The plane departed Prestwick on January 28 and touched down the same day at Belgrade. 


Prestwick was a favorite transit hub used by the CIA for the rendition of detainees following 9/11.

The United States has positioned six storage units located in the mountains of Norway’s central Tr√łndelag region, the capital of which is Trondheim. U.S. military equipment, including tanks and armored personnel vehicles, are stored at two Norwegian Air Force stations in the area, one of them being co-located with Trondheim Airport V√¶rnes where the Ukrainian Antonov landed on January 26, 2015.

The Antonov's destination after it left Belgrade was Mombasa, Kenya via Athens. The plane was reported by Serbian sources to be carrying "special cargo" weapons. It is conceivable that UR-82072 dropped off in Athens for further shipment to Ukraine weapons loaded at NATO airports in Lampedusa, Glasgow, and Trondheim, as well as Serbian caches placed on board in Belgrade and, perhaps, U.S. weapons stored at Picatinny Arsenal in Morris County, New Jersey, the Defense Department's Specialty Site for Guns and Ammunition, and Naval Weapons Station Earle, New Jersey. Both weapons bases are in close proximity to Newark Liberty International. The AN-124 is permanently based at Kiev's Gostomel Airport. The plane’s visit to Newark airport was said to be “rare” by local plane spotters.

Ever since fighting broke out between Ukrainian forces and Russian-speaking separatists in eastern Ukraine, the mysterious Ukrainian AN-124 has been spotted around the world, likely picking up weapons. On June 18, 2014, it was seen at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion International Airport. Before that, it was seen on May 22, 2014 at Las Palmas, Canary Islands, in what may have been a refueling stop. On January 1 and 6, 2015 and November 23, 2014, it was spotted at Leipzig/Halle Airport in Germany; on July 2, 2014, it was Luqa International in Malta (Malta was another staging base for weapons supplies to anti-Qaddafi forces during the Libyan civil war); and on April 15, 2014 at Francisco Sa Carneiro Aiport, Porto, Portugal and a week later, on April 27, at Schwechat Airport in Vienna. In June 2014, the Ukrainian transport plane was at Boston Logan Airport, Tulsa International in Oklahoma (the home of Tinker Air Force Base, a major logistics center), and Philadelphia International Airport (near Boeing’s Rotorcraft Systems in Ridley Park, Pennsylvania). The Ukrainian plane was reported to have arrived from Ben Gurion in Tel Aviv to pick up an Agusta Westland ICH-47F Chinook helicopter, licensed by Boeing, for the Italian army. However, it is anyone’s guess what the Ukrainian plane picked up in addition to the Italy-bound Chinook and where such “extra cargo” may have ended up.

On May 14, 2014, the Ukrainian Antonov was seen at Calgary International Airport in Alberta. Calgary is a major nexus for the Canadian and American military-industrial complex, hosting Raytheon Canada’s missile production division and plants producing the rotary Phalanx machine gun and infrared and targeting equipment for armored vehicles, and General Dynamics, Harris Corporation, and NovAtel factories manufacturing everything from avionics systems to satellite communications gear.

Also in June 2014, the globe-hopping Ukrainian weapons transport was seen at Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage, Alaska. In June 2014 it was seen in Buenos Aires. In October 2013, just a month before the outbreak of CIA and State Department-supported Maidan protests in Kiev, UR-82072 was seen on the runway at Dulles International Airport, which sits in the middle of an American military-intelligence industrial complex that includes the CIA, Defense Logistics Agency operations, and major war contractors like Boeing and Lockheed Martin. Dulles also hosts a German military base on American soil.

On April 4, 2014, the Antonov weapons carrier was sighted at Portsmouth International Airport, the old Pease Air Force Base, which is now a New Hampshire Air National Guard Base. It is said to have departed for Dakar, Senegal. However, one of the most common tactics of the CIA and U.S. military during the heyday of Iran-contra was to file false flight plans and bogus bills of lading. Israel’s Mossad assisted in the clandestine shipment of U.S. weapons, such as the TOW anti-tank missile, to Iran.




In September 2014, the Ukrainian weapons hauler was spotted on a runway at Tbilisi International Airport in the Republic of Georgia. Not far from it was a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster cargo plane that was supposedly delivering weapons to Georgia. The close proximity of the Ukrainian weapons heavy lifter to the C-17 at Tbilisi airport coincided with the NATO Summit in Wales. In 2013, the Ukrainian plane was involved in the transfer. 

There is little doubt that Breedlove, an unapologetic Cold Warrior, had previously authorized the transfer of NATO weapons to Ukraine via Tbilisi. Georgia and Ukraine have formed an “aspirant NATO member alliance” against Russia on a front line extending from South Ossetia, through Abkhazia, through eastern Ukraine and Crimea, to the Transnistrian Republic north of Moldova. It is this front line that NATO war planners now dream of directly confronting indigenous and Russian troops protecting the independence of the phalanx of states of South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Donetsk, Lugansk, and Transnistria but also Russia’s southern flank, including the Russian autonomous republic of Crimea and the Russian federal city of Sevastopol. 

It is clear from the arrivals and departures of Ukraine’s gigantic weapons hauler, Breedlove’s comments about arming Ukraine with lethal weapons were ex post facto. Once again, America has chosen a foolhardy strategy of war over diplomacy. And, once again, it will pay a terrible price in terms of blood and treasure.

West To Send More Heavy Weapons For Ukraine’s Battered Military

As with WWII Europe will become the main battleground in WWIII   

GLOBAL RESEARCH
By Stephen Lendman
02/03/2015

Throughout months of conflict, Washington covertly supplied Kiev’s military with lethal weapons. So did various EU countries.

Reports indicate new supplies coming. More on this below. Donbas self-defense forces keep battering Kiev’s military. Supported by Western mercenaries and US forces.


Fort Russ reports “panic in Debaltsevo.” Kiev parliament deputy Taras Pastukh involved in fighting issued the following statement:

“Greetings from the still-Ukrainian Debaltsevo. We just repelled an attack on our base camp.”

“Earlier it could barely be reached by artillery, but today enemy infantry had arrived. The National Guard had left the city, thus leaving us open to attack.”


“All blocking positions report constant shelling and tank attacks. We never received any reinforcement. It went to the CTO zone, but never went where it was needed.”

“We are being abandoned here, while at the same time others are simply running away.”

“I ask for your help. Tell everyone you can about the critical situation here…I could not believe (rebels) would come at us with such force…”

“(T)his is genuine betrayal of the country by the entire command, including our so-called ‘president.’ “

On Sunday, 500 Ukrainian Volunteer Soldier National Assembly fighters back from Donbas demonstrated in Kiev, chanting:

“We call on all commanders to rise up and start overthrowing the government. The battalion brotherhood is starting a national tribunal.”

Militants complained about lack of financing and weapons. They want martial law declared. Security services and defense leadership changes.

Legal immunity for parliament members and judges lifted. Illegitimate president Petro Poroshenko impeached and replaced.

Days earlier, another demonstration demanded illegitimate prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk be removed. Chants included “Reform or bullet to the head…(O)ur patience is running out.”

Rebels captured Uglegorsk. A Ukrainian army stronghold used for communications and supply. About 10 km from thousands of Ukrainian soldiers trapped in Debaltsevo.

Donetsk People’s Republic Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchencko issued an ultimatum saying:

“Guys, my proposal is to lay down arms and surrender. You’re fighting the wrong people.”

“You have the only chance to save your lives. Surrender and you will live. I promise that all of you will return home afterwards.”

Kiev forces continue sustaining heavy losses. A Cyber Berkut hacktivist web site reported Ukraine’s security service prohibiting hospitals from revealing information on battlefield casualties.

Kiev’s most recent mobilization reflects desperation. Thousands of Ukrainian soldiers are deserting. Many seek refuge in Russia.

Many thousands more refuse to show up for conscription. They want no part of fighting their own citizens. Or be cannon fodder for Kiev.

The reliable Colonel Cassad web site reports Debaltsevo junta forces mostly surrounded.

Heavy fighting continues. The Saker reported good and bad news. Junta forces appear “completely unable to mount any effective offensive.”

Not “a single tactical success” achieved. Rebels are clearly stronger. “(T)hey are generally prevailing.”

But lack “the kind of superiority to achieve an operational breakthrough.” At least so far.

Thousands of trapped junta forces have a choice. Surrender or die. “(T)ime is definitely not on the junta’s side…(N)ot politically, not economically and not militarily,” said The Saker.

Things aren’t going the way Washington planned. Kiev’s military supported by US and EU funding, weapons, training and direction was thought easily able to defeat Donbas rebels.

Instead they’ve been routed. Kiev is losing the war. Washington and rogue EU partners appear desperate.

Everything done so far failed. At the same time, Kiev’s junta plans escalated war. Obama promised more heavy weapons and other aid.

According to The New York Times:

“(A)fter a series of striking reversals that Ukraine’s forces have suffered in recent weeks, the Obama administration is taking a fresh look at the question of military aid.”

Code language for supplying greater amounts of heavy weapons than already. Likely more US forces on the ground. Greater Pentagon involvement in directing combat operations.

Perhaps greater numbers of US recruited paramilitaries like Blackwater USA (now Academi).

Russia’s Ren TV reports proof of EU mercenaries fighting for Kiev in Donbas. Including British, Italian, Polish and Swedish nationals.

Disguised as “security or consulting agencies.” Ideologically hard-right ultranationalists.

Polish ultra right group head Falanga Bartosz Bekier said “(m)any Poles are fighting on Kiev’s side in this conflict, it’s true.”

“They go to Ukraine to join volunteer corps as private individuals. But Poland’s official authorities will never confirm this fact.”

Italian mercenary Francesco Falkone said “(i)n late August, we were paid about $300. For all previous months. Now…they are paying about $200 a month, like (for) local policem(en).”

John Kerry plans visiting Kiev this week. He, Joint Chiefs Chairman General Martin Dempsey, Vice Joint Chiefs Chairman Admiral James Winnefeld Jr, NATO commander General Philip Breedlove, and outgoing Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel support sending more weapons.

Stop NATO reports EU nations intending more military aid. Member countries began supplying Kiev with weapons last summer.

Then Ukrainian defense minister Valeriy Heletey confirmed it short of details on weapons supplied and countries involved.

“I have no right to disclose any specific country we reached agreement with,” he said.

“But the fact is that those weapons are already on the way to us. That’s absolutely true. I can officially tell you.”

Expect lots more from Washington and EU nations. Poland’s Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak indicated “no obstacles” to selling weapons to Ukraine.

So far, Washington’s Ukrainian strategy reflects a black hole of countless billions of dollars wasted.

Neo-Nazi thugs run things. Public anger against Poroshenko’s regime grows. Rebels clearly hold the upper hand in Donbas fighting.

Kiev’s military is in disarray. Fort Russ reported rebel forces able to breach well fortified Kiev military positions “in a matter of hours.”

In contrast, Ukraine’s military is unable to “demonstrate an ability to seize a defended position with a rapid ground assault.”

“(O)ne gets the impression that (rebel forces are) toying with its enemy…Ukrainian troops are being ground to bits by a combination of lightning (rebel) assaults…futile counterattacks (and heavy) artillery fire.”

“(M)any components of the ramshackle Ukrainian military (regular army, National Guard, volunteer battalions, MVD, the Right Sector battalions which don’t seem to recognize any authority, etc., etc., etc.) are starting to look askance at one another, suspecting each other of, if not treason, then at least not pulling their weight.”

Given how badly things are going combined with growing popular discontent, Ukraine’s survival in its present form may be very much up for grabs.

Washington’s Ukraine gambit failed. At least so far. Whether more heavy weapons combined with greater US involvement on the ground can change things remains to be seen.

US post-9/11 direct and proxy wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Ukraine reflect one failure after another.

Impeding Washington’s imperial ambitions. Hopefully heading toward undermining them altogether. The only chance for world peace.

A Final Comment

Transparency International (TI) calls Ukraine Europe’s most corrupt country. A year after Maidan, it remains so.

It ranks among the world’s most corrupt countries. “Despite ‘the facade change,’ Ukraine continues treading water,” said TI.

Newly adopted anti-corruption laws last October did nothing to change things. Ukraine’s military is affected.

Hundreds of millions of dollars of supplies and equipment are stolen. High-ranking officers are involved.

Ukraine’s neo-Nazi Right Sector contributes enormously to Kiev’s dirty war on Donbas. The anti-regime CyberBerkut hacking group accused RS leader Dmitry Yarosh of “economic crimes,” saying:

“We are publishing documents that expose the criminal activities of the head of Ukrainian neo-Nazis, which confirm multiple incidences of extortion – the illegal and cynical seizure of properties and businesses belonging to Ukrainian citizens by Yarosh and his associates.”

“The stolen money is then taken out of the country through fronts and deposited in offshore accounts.”

“Now everyone will know that Yarosh and his band of neo-Nazis are just using politics as a cover for their criminal activities and personal enrichment at the expense of ordinary Ukrainians.”

Yarosh is a parliamentary deputy. He’s on Interpol’s wanted list on charges of inciting terrorism.

He was involved in Maidan violence toppling Viktor Yanukovych. His thugs murdered hundreds last May in Odessa. He’s likely responsible for many other atrocities.

He’s like others in high places in Kiev’s government and military. Responsible for enormous corruption.

Perhaps worse than pre-Maidan. Obama’s new friends are neo-Nazi criminals. US tax dollars support them.

Who Pulls Out A Gun On Kids At A Snowball Fight? This New Rochelle Police Officer

Coward, feral cops will soon enough find themselves in reversed situation dealing with enraged, fed-up parents  

VIBE
02/02/2015

Police continue to exhibit their lack of a chill button in 2015. The latest incident in question occurred in snowy New Rochelle, NY, where a couple of neighborhood teens wound up on the other end of an officer's handgun.


Last Friday afternoon (Jan. 30) at Horton Avenue and DeWitt Place, Sgt. Joseph Salerno halted what appeared to be an innocent snowball fight by drawing his gun and pointing it at the teens involved. A video recording that has since gone viral shows two teens kneeling on the floor with their hands up and backs turned, with Salerno holding the gun out towards them saying "Don't f-cking move." Bystanders look on as he does so. "This group of guys was having a snowball fight, and now the cop has a gun on them," said the woman behind the camera.


The video alone is enough to stir up angry emotions, but opposing reports on what was happening in those moments insist otherwise. Talk of the Sound reports that the officer was actually responding to a 911 emergency call reporting a man with a gun at that location and video of the teens—who happened to be African American—was "clever mischief."


New Rochelle Deputy Police Commissioner Anthony Murphy provided the New York Daily News with a statement. "There was no snowball fight," he said. "We dispatched several cars to the area. Police officers got out of their cars and one of the individuals bent down, adjusted something in his waistband and ran. The group was compliant…the other cop is in foot pursuit of the suspect that had the gun. The suspect runs into an apartment house and into an unknown apartment.”


Murphy felt the video's commentary skewed the story. “I think the [woman’s] comment about the snowball fight was edited in later on,” he told the New York Post.

Do you think the video is way out of context to determine the story? Or was the officer still way out of line?
