Russian Neighbor Belarus Asks To Host Another 15 Russian Fighter Jets In Response To NATO Escalation

Tyler Durden's picture




 

With NATO actively building up its airforce support in Poland and the Baltic states in recent days in a flashback to cold war military escalation and deterrence, and even launching AWACS planes over Poland and Romania to monitor the Ukraine crisis and "enhance the alliance's situational awareness," the inevitable has finally happened, and other Russian neighbor states, ones not alligned with the military treaty, have escalated in turn only this time the are showing their allegiance not to the west but to Russia.

Moments ago RIA reported that Minsk will "adequately react to the strengthening of NATO forces near the borders of Belarus, and will offer to host up to an additional 15 Russian aircraft, according to the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko on Wednesday at a meeting of the Security Council of Belarus.

"Belarus is adequately reacting to the strengthen the forces of NATO near the borders of Belarus" - the president said. He added that "Belarus will offer to host up to an additional 15 Russian Federation aircraft in connection with the activity of NATO."

Which, it goes without saying, plays precisely into Putin's intentions all along: force all of Russia's neighbors to reveal their allegiance, and since virtually all would have to pick Moscow (see what happened in Ukraine), set the stage for the grand reincarnation of the Soviet Union.

In the meantime, while the G-7 and everyone with a microphone, continues to warn Russia not to annex Crimea, which now seems a done deal, Ukraine's PM Arseniy Yatsenyuk, whose cash-strapped nation needs as much as $15 billion in loans, will meet President Barack Obama later today. And as if to aid Putin's plans even further, First Deputy Premier Vitaliy Yarema told the government in Kiev that Russian forces continue to be deployed along Ukraine’s eastern border and are “constantly increasing their presence,”

Logically, the western response will be to beef up NATO forces even more, which in turn will force nations like Belarus to self-annex themselves to Russia by demanding even more Russian troops in their nations, allowing Putin to serially, and peacefully, to takeover the former USSR nations one by one until the empire rebuilding effort is complete.

I don’t think anyone is supportive of Vladimir Putin’s actions to press Moscow’s power and influence West, it’s more a case of frustration and alarm at the utter weakness of our own leadership in the West.

 

It seems that having made countless gestures and empty threats, we are entirely impotent in the face of Vladimir Putin. He is strategically kicking us in the nuts again and again and again and all we do is beg that he stop. Oh how the mighty fall.

 

It’s embarrassing. We have been bluffing for 50 years and this guy has finally called us out.

 

This is what it looks like when the coolest kid at school finally gets the living shit kicked out of him by the overweight nerd he’s been bullying since second grade.

 

Suddenly everybody’s belief system gets a wake up call, everybody realises they don’t need to take shit of anyone, and nothing will ever be the same again.

 

Syria, Crimea… This is that school day being played out in geopolitics.

If the region of Texas can secede from Mexico,

declare independence,

then later vote to be annexed by the US ...

What Russia wants is not to have Nato forces and especially missiles along its border. Russia has been invaded across the plains many times and feels the need to have a buffer zone, previously this meant Nato would have to fight their way across Poland.

The US has two great oceans on either side so cannot realistically be invaded.

It is clear that having missiles on the border allows the US to launch a first strike to reduce the number of Russian missiles thereby removing MAD.

What do you think the reaction would be if there were missiles in say Cuba, Mexico & Canada.

We bankrupted them with 240 billion in fake securities ginned up by G. Bush senior and his cabal of bankers/agents in project Hammer. Those bonds came due on 9/11 and were strangely enough destroyed in the 9/11 attack.

In a world of possibilities nothing is impossible. I have been trying to convince my countrymen for years now that we need to arm the civilian population ala Switzerland, remove ourselves from NATO and distance ourselves from the UN in general. Make trade with all and live peacefully - have no alliances and carry as big a stick as possible. My rants ar usually met with raised eyebrows and "buts". I'm not looking so crazy now me thinks.... Canada is ripe for the picking. I wonder who will annex us?

Give me a break,  Canada, do you even know what national defense is?  You've been nessled up to the US defense tit since Great Britain couldn't afford to protect you and the rest of the free world.  Canada is like the scrawny little brother.  It takes resources and know how to be strong.  You need to exercise to have strength.  Go ahead, we could use more backup.  Yes I know this is the cost, as opposed to the benefits, of having the dominate world curency.  And yes we have abused that, but deal with it and the benefits that you have derived from it.  You probably speak french.

You should reread my post instead of just trying to pick a fight. LOL. Typical of too many who post here. BTW - almost everyone in this country under the age of about 50 speaks french to some degree or another. Some better than others. It is mandatory in most school districts even in the west. But I digress.

You are correect we are small (though large geographically). With a poulation of just over 30 million (less than the state of California) and being the second largest political land mass in the world we are sitting ducks physically here. We are too dependent on alliances to defend ourselves properly - our military is well trained but tiny (good and bad thing I suppose) . The only answer for us at this stage is to go to a Swiss style system of defense. There are about 3 to 4 million relatively well armed civilians here but they are not organized and could not mount an effective defense against an invading army. Our government seems to care very little about this and as the rest of the world destabalizes we are left sitting on massive resources with no real way of defending them.

On our northern border is the Bear who has been poked and prodded to the point where it is now wide awake and pissed. Our northern flank is completely and utterly exposed and impossible to defend because of its distance from our population and its climate. And on our southern border is the largest most advanced and most indebted military empire in the history of the world. It is run by arrogant psychopaths with fascist leanings and is in its death throes - it is as dangerous domestically as it is internationally and it is exchanging barbs with the Bear. And some how my countryment think this will all end well..... lol. I am not so optimistic. I am not sure if I should begin to learn Russian or start speaking english with a drawl.... Living in Canada in 2014 - a bit like being in Poland in 1936? The question I cannot seem to answer is if we are Poland who is Germany? Food for thought "eh"?

Not to say there is any analogy, but:

the plan:
Mein Kampf   ~  Project for New American Century (PNAC)

the preparation
Brownshirts riot in Czechoslovakia  ~ Brownshirts riot in Ukraine

the takeover/ coup
NAZIs take over Sudetenland ~ Svoboda/Right Sector takes over pro-NATO Kiev region.

the new demand
Hitler demands all anti-NAZI parts of Czechoslovakia  ~ Obama demands all anti-NATO parts of Ukraine submit

the reaction
England/France allow/accept takeover of  all Czechoslovakia  ~ Russia (so far) refuses takeover of all Ukraine.

This is not a "Reggie" issue.  This is a Kerry issue and this "Swift boat" genius of a man has the situation well under control.  Our master statesman is umbilically linked to our near sorcerer of a President and there are few than can meet their "red line" challanges, including the pussy Putin.  Two peas in a pod.  A diplomatic tag team such as the world as never seen.  Do you think the fact that Obama has visited 57 states and Heinz has 57 vareities is simply a coincidence?  I think not.  And it has Putin shaking in his boots.

32% from the "neo nazi" parties : Svoboda and right sector

Belarus has been calling for a Union with Russia for more than a decade. Lukashenko even finalised the titles for himself and Putin in the union, when Putin's second term was expiring. But being the master strategist that he is, Vladimir Vladimirovich knew an independent Belarus whose allegiance was never in doubt was more useful in international politics than one which was part of the union and did not respond to the invitations for the union.

Days like this are what prove such decisions rght.

"...allowing Putin to serially, and peacefully, to takeover the former USSR nations one by one until the empire rebuilding effort is complete."

 

Very disappointing conclusion, Tylers - do you think he planned the $5B of US NGO money going into Ukraine over the past decade to foment revolution(s) too?

If so, your analysis makes sense.

Might not Russia be reacting to a real existential threat to itself?

How do you think the US might react to Canada potentially 'hosting' Russian missiles... or even Cuba.

Why is it this time, unlike the previous cold war, it seems the West (US/EU) are the bad guys stirring up trouble, and the East (Russia backed up by China, India, etc) are not the bad guys?   The biggest indicator of not-bad-guy status being an indirect indicator - that the East loves gold and the West hates/vilifies gold.  (notice I never said "good-guy" for any party here - there are no innocent children, just less-guilty children)

Germany and Russia are the guarantors of peace in Europe. Germany attempted to take control of at least some of Russia's natural resources and failed. Now they will make sure the resources keep flowing. I'm sure Germany has, in reality, no qualms about giving Russia its natural sphere of influence, in the eyes of these two large powers it is the west that is the problem. If, and when, Germany breaks free of its shackles these "escalations" will finally be a thing of the past.

Germany's shackles is the EU, but also is it's market. Russia is it's source of energy and raw materials while US is it's source of security and financial support as well as for the EU. A global economy means you have many master and by definition interdependent . Problem arises when a superpower becomes greedy and upsets the balance which is the case in Ukraine where too many outside interests are converging for strategic reasons.

Tyler: I think it's wrong to characterize Putin's actions as a plan to re-create the Soviet Union.

In actuality what Putin is doing is responding to previous actions taken by the US, UK governments and the EU (notably Germany) in trying to annexe Ukraine, first by bribery then by fascist-thug revolution. Let's not forget that's where this farce began. The West's aim was/is to open Ukraine's doors to NATO bases right up to the borders of Russia to ring fence it for picking off at a later date.

It's difficult to see what other actions Putin could have taken, faced with this Western attempt to threaten Russia. And as we see, these Republics see themselves aligned with Russia, not the West, hence what's going on in Crimea and now Belarus.

We are seeing a modern day replay of the Cold War, which many people believe was actually instigated by the West for geo-political motives.

Putin is not trying to recreate the Soviet Union.  Many of the nations that were in the S.U. would be a drain on Russia, if they came back.  But he does want to protect Russia's interests which means keeping the NATO vipers out of Russia's "near abroad" as much as reasonably possible.

On the other hand, we have this news:

Russia has allowed Ukraine to conduct an observation flight over its territory (Google translation) to prove there is no war preparation activity close to the Ukrainian border.
