RT host, Daniel Bushell, talks about WW11 Nazi war criminals being smuggled out of Europe to the US via 'ratlines'. What is not mentioned is that the Vatican ran many of these 'ratlines' and supplied many false passports to these mega criminals. The book, "Unholy trinity : how the Vatican's Nazi networks betrayed western intelligence to the Soviets" by Mark Aarons and John Loftus, details the operations.
At the end of the Truthseeker show, Willian Engdahl pulls no punches when he describes the psychopaths in power creating all this mayhem.
Let's start by going right back in history to even before 'history'. Has it ever struck you as odd that 99% of human history is called “Pre-history”? History, as we know it, i.e. the 1%, is also called “written history” and only came into being with so called 'civilisation' which occurred, depending on the part of the world you look at, between 10,000 years ago in Mesopotamia and 2,000 years ago in parts of Europe. North America, Australia and other parts of the world has seen the introduction of 'civilisation' even more recently than that. Everything before 10,000 years ago, 'pre-history', is often dismissed as not important or irrelevant. There is a reason for that which, I hope, will become apparent by the end of this essay.
It is crucial to note that with the introduction of 'civilisation' to tribal or traditional societies came also the introduction of genocide. Genocide is a primary 'flag' of psychopathy at work. Native populations the world over succumbed under the onslaught of civilisation primarily because they did not have an understanding of organised psychopathy. The North American Indians, for instance, never lost a major battle against the white invaders. But they lost out continually because they made treaties with these psychopaths; the psychopathic representatives of a psychopathic culture. The lesson for today, individually and culturally, is never make a deal with a recognised liar. And certainly never make a deal that you cannot enforce. It's worse than a waste of time, for you and the generations that follow (if indeed there are any to follow).
It is well to remember that we evolved over hundreds of thousands of years to cope extremely well with the conditions that prevailed before 'history' or civilisation existed. In other words, we have evolved, not only physically but also psychologically, to cope with a far different world than the one we inhabit today. This has had a profound impact on us, our society and our environment.
Some Basic Truths That Could Restore Peace To The World
A couple of weeks ago, I followed a link to CounterPunch website to read an article. As I expected, it contained many inaccuracies and was missing important information. However, while I was on the site, I noticed an article by Andre Vltchek entitled “How Should We Write and Fight?”.
It is a very compelling piece of writing. Andre Vltchek began his piece with these words-
|“Are we – opposition investigative journalists, philosophers and documentary filmmakers – doing such a terrible job? Are we not providing the North American and European public with enough information, enough proof about the monstrous state of the world? Enough so they – the citizens of the Empire – finally get thoroughly pissed off, detach their backsides from their couches and chairs, and flood the capitals and business centers with their bodies, demanding change, demanding the end to atrocities that are being committed all over the world… the end of this imperialist and neo-con madness?”
“Are we failing, squarely and patently, to give examples and proof of the pain this world is suffering because of the bestiality of market fundamentalism, because of unchecked neocolonialism and shameless Western supremacy? Are we not providing enough stories and images, enough footage, to convince the citizens of the countries that are ruling the world, that something has gone awfully wrong?
Andre spent some time elaborating and with some emotion. Andre Vltchek is a powerful writer and he speaks with authority as he has been all over the world and has seen and reported from many of the most horrendous war and terror zones. Then a little further down he wrote this-
The empire of the International Bankers is falling apart and for the same reason all empires fall; hubris, military over-reach, the cynical dismissal of the interests its citizens and the all delusions that accompany psychopathy.
Psychopathy is antithetical to humanity. We have a natural preference for co-operation but the psychopaths have a natural preference for domination and exploitation. Ordinary people 'co-operate' with this domination till the pain gets too great and the reality of the long term cost becomes clear. The International Bankers who dominate the US, also dominate European countries through the European Union and are in the process of sacrificing the various EU countries for the benefit of the bankers' power base which is centered in London, New York and Washington.
Russia is bringing about the demise of the $US as the world's trading currency by simply withdrawing from using it in its trade with the world (h/t Nicholas). This is taking away the power of the bankers who have instituted the IMF economic regimes that have led directly to poverty, falling living standards and many deaths in Europe (and elsewhere around our globe). These same bankers, by the way, caused the deaths of millions of Russians during the 1990's reign of the Oligarchs through Yeltsin who all fronted for these same bankers.
Putin is well aware of this and will be wanting to ensure there is no re-run of that time for Russia. Putin has identified Russia's perennial enemy and it is not the US per se or even British and certainly not the Europeans. It isn't even the thugs running rampant around Ukraine right now. They are just murderous dispensable patsies of the bankers who will shrivel up as a force and blow away after the money stream dries up. This is a struggle for life between the Russians and the bankers. The Russians were happy for the bankers to fade away slowly and quietly in time but that is not the way of psychopaths facing the demise of their power and their plans for the domination of the whole world.

The recommendation and link to this excellent piece of writing was provided to me by the ever-vigilant McJ. Many thanks, McJ!
Catherine Brown does what her title for the article indicates. She very successfully deconstructs the tidal wave of Russophobia sweeping the world at the moment and shows it to be illogical and hypocritical. Brown punctures many of the myths surrounding modern Russia including Putin's reputed wealth and Pussy Riot's supposed martydom.
Brown has witnessed the steady improvement of the lot of the Russians during Putin's leadership. This would not have happened if Putin was the corrupt oligarch that he is portrayed as. If he was, Russia would look like Ukraine now. Ukraine's state of economic collapse is the legacy of oligarchy; as was Russia's before Putin.
Catherine Brown's personal history with Russia goes back to the nineties when she first lived there. She has visited and lived there on and off over the following decades. So, like Sharon Tennison's earlier essay, her's is a personal first hand account and very valuable for that same reason.
Towards the end of the article, we learn of Brown's estimate for the reasons for this Russophobia.
"Cuyu bono? What are the most obvious motivations for fostering Russophobia?
In brief: Russia’s foreign policy does not follow that of the West. Western armaments manufacturers have an interest in stoking a new Cold War, because the War against Terror has not filled the gap in arms sales – especially of nuclear weapons – left by the end of the Cold War. And NATO desperately needs a raison d’être."
There are other valid reasons too, in my view, and I will get to them in time. Meanwhile this is an excellent view of the panorama of hostility shown towards Russia and Russians and systematically exposes it for the duplicity it is.

This is the title of a short video clip taken from a longer RT show called "Worlds Apart". This episode features peace studies academic and researcher Dr Jan Oberg.
The full show (29 mins) can be seen below. From the RT video channel-
"Swedish and Finnish leaders have reinvigorated a push for their traditionally non-aligned countries to join NATO, in the face of what they say is a Russian threat. But does Russia really pose a threat to European security, or has it become a convenient scapegoat for growing militarism in Europe? How can Russia and the western world end the conflict in Ukraine, and rebuild peace by peace? Oksana is joined by the founder of the Transnational Foundation for Peace and Future Research, Dr Jan Oberg, to examine these issues."
