NATO & Article 5


Armstrong Economics Blog/War Re-Posted Nov 17, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: NATO was considering the missile attack on Poland a Russian attack on NATO, article 5, but it was a Ukraine missile. Ukraine is not a NATO member. Should this not be treated similarly?

ANSWER: You have a good point. The problem is, they really want war with Russia. Hillary is a Neocon Democrat and John McCain was a Neocon Republican. That takes precedent and the social nonsense is just to dazzle people who think there is a difference. They are already claiming it was not intentional by Ukraine when it fact it was another attempt to create a false flag to drag NATO into the conflict.

Zelensky to head US Defense Industry Conference


Armstrong Economics Blog/Corruption Re-Posted Sep 16, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

The military-industrial complex continues to grow with the proxy war. The annual Future Force Capabilities Conference and Exhibition hosted by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) will feature none other than Zelensky as their keynote speaker, as well as his minister of defense, Oleksii Reznikov. Everyone in attendance is directly profiting off of the war. The IRS deems the NDIA to be a nonprofit organization when in fact, it is blatantly lobbying.

Defense contractors need war, as do corrupt government officials who prosper off of pain. America has already provided Ukraine with over $15 billion since February, yet Zelensky is poised to request more funding and weapons at this meeting.

Boeing Defense, Space & Security; L3Harris Technologies; Raytheon Technologies; BAE Systems; Lockheed Martin Corporation; Huntington Ingalls Industries; General Dynamics; and Northrop Grumman all met in April to discuss how they could profit off of the war. The Pentagon recently announced (see video above) that they want to set up “the backbone of a Ukraine force…for years to come.” Meanwhile, the US military is suggesting that its own soldiers, 24% of whom are food insecure, begin applying for food stamps.

The Biden Administration seems to have unlimited funds for Ukraine. This event will show all the “innovative” ways that the US can pay to kill Russian soldiers on behalf of Ukraine “for years to come.”
