Armstrong Economics Blog/War Re-Posted Oct 2, 2022 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Martin, I am now becoming confused as to who or what is the instigator of the major global war that is transpiring. You have made the point that the Climate Change Zealots and their claims to end fossil fuels are the cause for inciting WW III. However, you have also made claims that the Neocons in the Deep State and their hatred of Russia are the instigators of this same conflict. Are these two forces one and the same or are they two different factions fighting for the same outcome?
Thanks for any clarification on this,
ANSWER: John McCain, who was the leader of the pack of Neocons, was promoting Nuclear Power for climate change to end the US dependence on oil and that of Europe. McCain used climate change to cut off Russia whose 50% of GDP was energy. Thus, McCain could care less about the climate. He used it as a weapon against Russia.
McCain just simply hated Russians and that was before Putin as Politico documented back to 1996 – three years before Putin. McCain used climate change as a weapon to undermine Russia. We must understand that there are Neocons in America, Russia, and China. They may be small in number, but they tend to be very manipulative. What we have is the Climate Zealots who want to end all fossil fuels, where their goals support the Neocons who want to annihilate their enemies – Russia and China.
The information that is circulating is that the real instigator behind the pipeline destruction was the Ukrainian Neo-Nazis. Putin on September 7th, 2022 threatened to turn off the gas tied to lifting the sanctions. It was certainly not Russia who destroyed the pipeline for they no longer have that threat to turn it off. The Neo-Nazis have been supported by the Neocons from day one. The destruction of the pipelines benefited the Neo-Nazis for now they have eliminated any possibility that the EU will agree and lift the sanctions. Based on their actions in the past, the information pointing to them I believe makes them the most likely actor.
The waters are now polluted and the impact on fishing will be considerable. This was not the brainchild of the Climate Zealots yet it sparks a few champaign toasts in celebration. Russia has come out and said that the slaughter of civilians in Bucha was fake and propaganda. Based upon information and belief, this was also a staged event by the Neo-Nazis. There are even videos confirming that which are in the possession of NATO. It does not end there. The Neo-Nazis shot down the Malaysian Flight M17 using an old BUK Russian missile that was no longer in use in an effort to get the US to send in troops claiming it came from the Donbas. The Neo-Nazis are really willing to do anything to quench their thirst for the hatred of Russians.
The 2014 Massacre of Russian-speaking Ukrainians in Odessa where they killed them grabbing them on the streets was a Neo-Nazi event. That was the turning point. It revealed that the Donbas had to separate for the Neo-Nazis wanted their death, not their submission. That began the civil war. They set fire to the building and burned all the Russian-speaking Ukrainians alive. For the first time in history, an organized massacre of civilians was carried out and even filmed by numerous people. This has been documented in extraordinary detail and the Neo-Nazis did not even fear of any negative consequences in world opinion.
The Neo-Nazis have manipulated the news to foster hatred of all Russians. You see it in forums like on eBay how can any Russian be allowed to sell anything? This is the same hatred that Hitler inspired against the Jews. You constantly demonize a group and it works. I personally knew people there in Kyiv during Maidan. I also know people personally from Donetsk. You could never bring a simple bottle of Russian vodka to dinner in Kyiv – that was an insult.
Most have no understanding of the hatred in that entire region. It was a Serb who assassinated the Archduke in 1914 and that single act resulted in the death of about 7% of the entire world population during World War I. Those spouting out the hatred of Putin are simply brainwashed and they better turn and look at your family for there are always more civilians who die in these large-scale wars than soldiers.
Before the breakup of Yugoslavia, I was there and told how their opposition killed 600 and threw them and threw them in a mass grave. I thought I had missed something in the news. When I asked: When did this happen? I was expecting a matter of days, but I was told: “Oh, about 500 years ago.” I responded, oh yes – that one. The hatred runs so deep throughout that region, it will never be resolved.
We are only involved because our Neocons hate Russians. The CIA protected the Ukrainian Neo-Nazis. They were NEVER put on trial like the Germans ONLY because they hated Russians. They are still supported by the US Intelligence agencies just as McCain would openly meet with the Neo-Nazis. We are now paying the price for they have never been told this is even a violation of human rights. I support the common people, not government propaganda from either side. We are the people who gain absolutely NOTHING from war. The ONLY benefit is to survive – that’s it. So those cheering to unleash the dog of war, please, go volunteer to fight in Ukraine and put your actions where your mouth is. It is always easy to cheer on someone else’s death.
This will be a war not to end all wars, but to end civilization and our age of peace since World War II.
Human nature cannot be changed. There will always be wars.
