THE GRAND CHESSBOARD

What will you do when Canada sends troops into Texas and bombs El Paso in order to destroy ms-13 Mexican drug gangs threatening Alberta?

What will you do if and when the New York Times reports this?

It won’t happen you say?  Well perhaps if you get off your “exceptionally” high horse of American hubris for a moment and think about how anything is possible—especially when cowards, weaklings, and degenerate fools run American politics and military operations—this might be something your children and grandchildren will suffer from, unless you address it now.  So giving Americans the benefit of the doubt that Americans do love or care for their children and grandchildren, and perhaps country, let’s entertain an analytical discussion about this—unless of course this article gets in the way of your Sunday football schedule and worship of pop-culture.  Hopefully it won’t.

So let us just say, for the sake of argument, that the American exceptionalism force-field will never allow this to happen.  Why not?

Why would this not happen?   Because the Mexican gangs are employed by the CIA?  Because Canada wouldn’t dare do such a thing?  Because the U.S. would never allow it?

If your answer is the U.S. would never allow Canada to unilaterally send its troops into America, without asking, to fight Mexican gangs, then you are presuming that the U.S. has sufficient military power to eject such an invasion.  But what if, let’s just say for the sake of argument, the U.S. did not have the sufficient military power to forcibly remove or stop foreign military from entering into our lands to perform whatever missions they say are needed?  Oh, we’d simply use our citizen militias? 

Well, let’s just say, once more, that there are no citizen militias (perhaps all guns have been outlawed and the Second Amendment repealed, out of a fear that too many mongoloids were getting their hands on guns and hurting themselves).  Let’s say America has no strong military defense, and no militia, and is simply one big country with some police and mediocre military, and Canada is 50 years more advanced in its weapons.  What then? 

We’d have no choice but to take it, endure the invasion and damage done to our country during the Canadian “mission to destroy Mexican gangs” and we’d have to accept their apology for any of our citizens killed as collateral damage.  Of course we could petition and cry and whine to the United Nations, International Criminal Court, and any other coalition of countries or institutions of international prestige, but if Canada owned or dominated or bribed those nations, we’d probably be ignored and criticized by them.  So what do we have as our options?  We pray, and ask for a miracle, and accept the hand of whatever country reaches down to us and offers to help restore our sovereignty, our integrity, and our honor as a nation and as a people.

So if this is what we’d do, and we’d argue that anyone who tells us that we don’t have the right to defend ourselves, and that we don’t have any right to protest the unilateral policing or bombing of America by Canadian troops - is either delusional or an enemy trying to destroy us for a larger agenda, then why do we condemn other nations for doing it? 

Why do we flippantly ignore the complaints of other nations, and even “twist their arm”—as Obama has said—when they protest, when we would make the exact same complaints and protestations if we—America--were in their position?

So if this is what we would say as Americans about our natural right to defend our country’s borders and culture and political environment, how can we ridicule, condemn, and ignore other nations when they say this exact same thing about us, the United States, for violating the geographical and social integrity and boundaries of their own countries—such as Syria; or Libya; or Iraq, or Iran?  Are we that arrogant?  That foolish?  That blind?  That incompetent?  That delusional about our own reputation?  Are we that puffed up with pride?  Isn’t that the black heart of hypocrisy saying one thing and doing the opposite?  And isn’t that the very definition of evil? 

Perhaps one way to more deeply understand how the current American landing of troops in Syria should be analyzed and fully appreciated for what it represents as a precedent setting in international law and unilateral war, let’s look at a possible future scenario of the same thing happening to America.

One conceivable scenario, as suggested earlier, could be Canada sending military troops (and mercenaries/contractors) deep inside Texas to begin setting up operations, tents, landing strips, and then bombing Texas towns using the justification that they are “going after Mexicans” who are sneaking across the border into Texas, because they will eventually, somehow, represent a threat to Canadians.    

So Canada suddenly has a moral, unilateral, and international right to send its military troops and planes, missiles, and bombs into Texas, without asking the permission of President Obama, or the Texas Governor, or the Texas legislature.  In fact, Canada arrogantly affirms their “God-ordained power and authority to police the world” by disregarding, with hand-swatting, chin raising snobbery and superiority, the counter arguments or protests of anyone who challenges this moral right and political clairvoyance of their Presidential “high-priests” and Congressional “scribes”.

And when Texicans (the old term for Texas citizens of the Republic of Texas) are killed accidentally because some of those Canadian bombs miss their target, or the Canadian troops hiding out in the Texas desert are targeting the infrastructure of Texas, the electricity grids, the phone companies, the internet companies—and perhaps even the NSA storage facility where they store billions of Americans phone and computer and financial records in case they need to access evidence for future prosecution of them for past deeds done years or decades ago—the end result is the same.

What’s good for the goose, is certainly good for the gander…or in America’s case, the black carrion eating crow that feeds on the corruption left behind its military industrial complex humanitarian exercises.

THE GEOPOLITICAL CHESSGAME

One of the best ways to multidimensionally comprehend the geopolitics of the current Syria situation, is to imagine the Middle East as a chessboard and the events or actions as specific pieces and moves made by the countries involved.

For example, the recent move of China supporting Russia and Iran by its recognition of Palestine as a legitimate State, and then inviting Iran to have closer ties with China, is—in the game of chess—known as “castling”.  This is when the rook moves to the corner of the board, and is perfectly diagonal to the corner of the opponent, enabling the rook to, in one move, cross the board and then capture the King, Queen, Bishop, or other rook along the back.

According to the rules of chess, it is explained as:  Castling is a move in the game of chess involving a player's king and either of the player's original rooks. It is the only move in chess in which a player moves two pieces in the same move, and it is the only move aside from the knight's move where a piece can be said to "jump over" another.

So China and Russia/Iran have wisely repositioned themselves, and “checked” the United States—forcing it to react defensively. 

Coinciding with the “castling” is Russia’s positioning of its “knights” along the border of Turkey, which is the placement of its fighter plane and helicopter bombing missions, and its cruise missile air support from submarines and destroyer ships in the Mediterranean.  This prevents any NATO planes or ships from entering the zones without being instantly “matched” by the pre-existing Russian pieces.  Finally, the “pawns” are steadily moving forward - the Syrian-Kurd-Iraqi ground forces advancing against ISIS.

The “Bishops” in the game are the European peoples who are re-tribalizing themselves along ethnic, religious, cultural, and historical lines, and are either choosing the political side that preserves Europe’s Christian Heritage, or surrendering it to some new George Soros inspired “soup of humanity” agenda where all religions, ethnicities, languages, and cultures are suddenly melted together in a lukwarm European superstate, governed by a police-military Oligarchy which uses the menace of terrorism as a constant co-dependency issue.  The goal of course is to erect a new Platonic Republic pyramid scheme, where the Philosopher Priests are at top (Politicians/Bureaucrats/academics/media), protected by the Enforcers (military-police), and fed by the blood and taxes of the Peasants (workers, farmers, half-wits).  Time will tell if they succeed, or if the smoldering grievances result in an eventual inferno of civil war across Europe.

REFUGEE ATTACKS IN GERMANY

It was recently reported that on New Year’s Eve, Germany was targeted with “sexual attacks”, with Muslim refugees attacking German women.  At a football game between Germany and Poland, Polish fans emphasized their disgust with Germans about this by hanging a banner at the game that said, “PROTECT YOUR WOMEN”.    

These recent sexual assaults in twelve states in Germany, and in Scandinavia, by refugee Middle Eastern men, simply demonstrate the reality of the cultural divide, and the clear potential for social uprisings and civil war which may soon result if these attacks continue or worsen in Europe.  Europeans will only take so much, before they invoke their medieval instincts, and unleash a “cold weather” ferocity which history knows always defeats the warm weather Mediterranean laziness.

What does this say?  I would surmise that given the German temperament--especially when backed into a corner—Germans are now going to be looking at this problem in the simplest possible terms and define a solution using the most basic metaphorical equations of choice....and one of the best solution, used many times in the past, is this: If a crazy, rabid, snarling dog is running around your neighborhood, howling its religious language, and defecating on your grass, and looking for your children to eat...what do you do?

Do you go outside, get on your knees with a doggie treat and smilingly pat your chest and invite it to run up to you and jump on you and think it will suddenly transform into a puppy and lick your face because it finally gets the love it never got before and suddenly Cujo (Stephen King’s book about a monstrous rabid Saint Bernard dog for the uninitiated) becomes Lassie?....huh, no, probably not--since the probability of that is very low, and given the German understanding of math, probability, and engineering, they won't see that as working. Some Germans are doing exactly that, of course, and I suppose the world will be a better place when such naive morons are removed from the gene pool by the miscalculation of human behavior.

Do you sacrifice one of your kids in the hope the dog’s hunger will be appeased and never bother you again out of respect for the unwritten pact of feeding it with the blood of your children and/or wife?

Do you walk outside and let it hump your leg in the hope its simply a case of sexual dysfunction and it will somehow become a peaceful, calm family dog once again after its sexual hunger is appeased by using you, or your wife, or your kids as a piece of meat?

Do you stay in the house, cowering, with drapes closed, and covering your ears to try and not hear the howling outside and the scratching at the door, hoping that somehow it will just get tired and go away?

Or do you get your mind and spirit and values straight, recalibrate your attitude and resolve, take your most efficient weapon, go outside, stand your ground, let it come up to you, and come smashing down with all your might upon its back and kill it--very quick, very clean, very permanent. And in that action show its other pack members that the same fate will come to them unless they stop their terrifying and abusing of the citizens who live in the neighborhood?

My guess is, the Germans, the Scandinavians, the Celts, the Russians, are all approaching the latter choice as their best and only option. Time will tell.

This is the mind game from a European perspective.

Now let’s consider the American position. 

HOUSE OF CARDS

Clearly the U.S. is in a losing position.  It has been put onto the board by Israel propagandizing Iran as a threat, somehow, to the United States and Europe—and then Israel is seen giving “aid and comfort” to the enemy by hospitalizing the mercenaries it has been feeding from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States.  So the American people have caught their own Politicians like Marco Rubio, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, in a lie when they claim to be fighting ISIS, and then they see Israel and Saudi Arabia and Turkey helping these same ISIS mercenaries.  The hypocrisy is an astounding demonstration of how contemptuously moronic American political leaders and Israel’s Netanyahu and the Zionists consider average Americans to be.

Incidentally America is now sending U.S. ground forces to help ISIS (albeit while claiming to be fighting them) do the most horrible and brutally evil things imaginable, such as child sex slavery and religious beheadings of Christians out of religious hatred.

This also is putting Americans on a clearer dislike for Israel, which is forcing Americans to see that they are really simply being used to facilitate Israel’s own imperial agenda to dissolve Iran—as they’ve constantly demanded the U.S. do.

The U.S. is desperate to stop hemorrhaging its influence and reputation, all the while backing up into a corner with each foolish war, bombing campaign, or false flag attack against its own citizens in an attempt to justify its encroaching, self-inflicted police state—which has been the goal since triggering the 9-11 wars after the Pentagon attacks.

The U.S. has subsequently entered a new stage of its “delusional fever” and begun ridiculously insane actions that can only isolate Americans further from the rest of the world.  Most recently, the U.S. Department of Justice has begun coordinating the kidnapping and prosecution of Russian citizens, and using such prosecutions and lengthy imprisonment threats and property confiscations to try and generate leverage against Russia.  But this reflects a poor understanding of the Russian mind and culture, and most especially of President Vladimir Putin. 

Kerry and Obama (and most American political and military leaders) fail to understand the Russian mind and the Russian position, and how Russia sees Syria as its own last stand, and that in order to keep Russia safe, Syria cannot be allowed to fall.  Otherwise the resulting vacuum will bring in another failed Wahhabi Wild West state, which will then cause grievously new threats and wounds to Russia.  Additionally, China is also slowly aligning itself with Russia and Iran by supporting a Palestinian state.  China may also be the next BRICS coalition member to contribute troops to help Russian operations. Russia in turn will help troops patrol the Spratly Islands in return and North Korea must make overtures to Japan to assuage its fears and then promise no unilateral aggression against Japan, only US forces.  And the game gets really interesting then.

If the U.S. President Obama, his Secretary of State John Kerry, and any neoconservative military general or member of Congress thinks that they can manipulate Putin, or the Russian people using economic sanctions and false arrests and prosecutions of Russian citizens, they are demonstrating not only a poor understanding of history and the Russian personality and polis in it, but are also showing that American political leadership is really beyond hope in its agenda of self-destruction and Constitutional suspension into a new American century of martial law—or more likely, a civil war.

The U.S. knows it's being examined carefully by its actions and words by all of its traditional allies—Germany, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia—and it is not coming across well.  In fact, because of American foreign policy that is pressuring NATO into starting new wars, Europe’s population is awakening and bubbling with anger and resentment after being victimized and abused by the fruit of American foreign policy.  This fruit has been the mass exodus of refugees out of their home countries and the overwhelming of Greece, Europe, and Scandinavia. 

This will obviously increasingly cause tension and division among European people, who are already struggling with a poor economy, and shift their alliance over to the only voice speaking up for Europeans and demanding they be protected by stopping the Middle East chaos and ending the mass refugee controlled immigration.  The only voice honestly saying this has of course has been the voice of Putin and Russia, Iran, and China. 

CONCLUSION

The question now becomes, how will Americans and the world react to this exposure of the “emperor having no clothes” and President Obama being a pathological liar who says one thing, while doing the exact opposite, and juxtaposes reality of action with the delusion of fantasy.  In other words, as Hitler deluded himself into thinking that there were armies on the map he could move around to defend against the Russians and Allies, so Obama is deluding himself into thinking that Americans and Europeans are going to continue to believe him, continue to hate Iran and Russia and China, and continue to blindly support his suicidal military wars throughout the world, and continue to freely sacrifice their children and money to pay for whatever he wills.  I think this is the sign of an insane man, and a justification for another “Operation Valkyrie”—albeit more effective and subtle, perhaps.
