When Europe crumbles under the feet of the Muslim hordes it will not be a good thing but it will be ironic. Europe, I fear for your future. 

The peacenik is always shocked when the crowbar slaps up the side of his head and when the brain is too damaged to spout forth words of righteousness, what then? Who stays the hand of violence when the blows are raining down? 

Remember, Diplomacide is dangerous.

* In reference to this.

From the timesonline.co.uk article:
Russia is considering arming its Baltic fleet with nuclear warheads for the first time since the cold war, senior military sources warned last night.

The move, in response to American plans for a missile defence shield in Europe, would heighten tensions raised by the advance of Russian forces to within 20 miles of Tbilisi, the Georgian capital, yesterday.

Under the Russian plans, nuclear warheads could be supplied to submarines, cruisers and fighter bombers of the Baltic fleet based in Kaliningrad, a Russian enclave between the European Union countries of Poland and Lithuania. A senior military source in Moscow said the fleet had suffered from underfunding since the collapse of communism. “That will change now,” said the source.

“In view of America’s determination to set up a missile defence shield in Europe, the military is reviewing all its plans to give Washington an adequate response.”

The Russians have already indicated that they may point nuclear missiles at western Europe from bases in Kaliningrad and Belarus. They are also said to be thinking of reviving a military presence in Cuba.

From the bloomberg.com article:
Now that Russia has humiliated Georgia with a punishing military offensive, it may shift its attention to reining in pro-Western Ukraine, another American ally in the former Soviet Union.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s first order of business likely will be to try to thwart Ukraine’s bid to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

“The Moscow authorities will use this opportunity to remind Ukraine of the damages of allying itself with NATO,” said Geoffrey Smith at Renaissance Capital investment bank in Kiev.

The U.S. has long seen Georgia and Ukraine as counterweights to Russia’s influence in the region. Opposition leaders in the two countries came to power after U.S.-backed popular protests in 2003 and 2004. Their ascension advanced an American strategy of expanding NATO to include both countries and securing energy routes from the Caspian Sea that bypass Russia. The BP Plc-led Baku- Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline to Turkey runs through Georgia.

The future effectiveness of that policy is now in doubt, with Georgia’s U.S.-educated President Mikheil Saakashvili, 40, weakened by a five-day blitz that his American patrons were powerless to halt.

Medvedev, 42, and Putin, 56, say Russia began the offensive in response to a drive by Georgia to restore control over the breakaway region of South Ossetia. Now Russia has ousted Georgian forces from there and from Abkhazia, another separatist region, and destroyed much of the central government’s military.

The South Ossetia conflict has been simmering since March, but it had taken the form of the controlled instability that had governed Russian-Georgian relations ever since the standstill agreement of June 24, 1992. The Georgian attack on the South Ossetia capital of Tskhinvali on Aug. 8 turned this “frozen conflict,” as diplomats call it, into a hot proxy war. At present its potential for escalation seems virtually unlimited and has direct consequences for Europe’s security.

From the article:
A commission concludes that China’s growing arsenal is being developed in ways designed to confront the United States. Clearly the People’s Republic is doing more these days than preparing for the 2008 Olympics.

The full report of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission released last week details the scope of China’s military buildup and the extent to which it is aimed at defeating the U.S. in any conflict over Taiwan.

“The Commission concluded that China is developing its military in ways that enhance its capacity to confront the United States,” the report states. “For example, China has developed capability to wage cyber-warfare and to destroy surveillance satellites overhead as part of its tactical, asymmetrical warfare arsenal.”

Gen. James E. Cartwright, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the commission that China is actively engaging in cyber-reconnaissance by probing the computer networks of U.S. government agencies as well as private companies.

The last paragraph of the article:
Former supreme leader Deng Xiaoping advised China’s military to “hide our capacities and bide our time, be good at maintaining a low profile.” Beijing’s ultimate weapon may be patience.

Boycott Chinese goods when possible! Don’t fund China’s war against the U.S.

From the article:
The world should brace for a possible war over the Iranian nuclear crisis but seeking a solution through talks should take priority, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said on Sunday.

“We have to prepare for the worst, and the worst is war,” he said in an interview broadcast on French television and radio.

“We must negotiate right to the end,” with Iran, he said, but underlined that if Tehran possessed an atomic weapon, it would represent “a real danger for the whole world.”

“New intelligence reveals China is covertly supplying large quantities of small arms and weapons to insurgents in Iraq and the Taliban militia in Afghanistan, through Iran.”

“Some arms were sent by aircraft directly from Chinese factories to Afghanistan and included large-caliber sniper rifles, millions of rounds of ammunition, rocket-propelled grenades and components for roadside bombs, as well as other small arms.”

“The Bush administration has been trying to hide or downplay the intelligence reports to protect its pro-business policies toward China, and to continue to claim that China is helping the United States in the war on terrorism. U.S. officials have openly criticized Iran for the arms transfers but so far there has been no mention that China is a main supplier.

“Defense officials are upset that Chinese weapons are being used to kill Americans. “Americans are being killed by Chinese-supplied weapons, with the full knowledge and understanding of Beijing where these weapons are going,” one official said. ”

Quote from the Article:
“Russia is preparing its own military response to the US’s controversial plans to build a new missile defence system in eastern Europe, according to Kremlin officials, in a move likely to increase fears of a cold war-style arms race.”

Quote from the Article:
“Analysts said there was a common feeling in Russia that the US had reneged on an agreement after the collapse of the Soviet Union to abandon cold war politics. “Cold war thinking has prevailed, especially on the western side,” Yevgeny Myasnikov, a senior research scientist at Moscow’s Centre for Arms Control, told the Guardian. “Russia has been deeply disappointed by what has happened after 1991. Nato started to expand, and the US started to think it had won the cold war. We had hoped for a partnership. But it didn’t happen.”

Oil, and more importantly a dependable oil supply, is the lifeblood of all industrialized nations. An oil supply is necessary to the welfare and continuance of all industrialized nations. In order to conduct war an oil supply is essential.

Russia will become Communist again or a variant of Communism more similar to the form present in China today. China wishes to be a Super Power. Russia wishes to re-establish itself as a Super Power. Russia and China will collaborate to become economic-rivals against the U.S. for the purpose of dismantling U.S. hegemony. Using the pseudo-capitalist communist variant both Russia and China will rise to become the primary economic and strategic rivals of the U.S.

Russia and China will further court the countries of the middle east undermining all U.S. efforts in order to secure their oil supply and to draw off oil from the U.S. in order to; first, diminish the U.S. economy and second, to deprive the U.S. of the necessary oil needed to conduct a war against Russia and or China directly or via proxy.

As an aside: Iran wishes to take control of Iraq and so a large amount of oil is in play. Russia-China will work hard to maintain friendships with Iran and therefore will not support action against Iran by the U.S.

The European Union also wishing to see the decline of U.S. hegemony will support Russian-Chinese objectives believing that their own authority will rise via the work of Russia-China who they believe will not be capable of maintaining their power for any length of time leaving the door open for their own ascent.

Lets watch the news and the development of stories that either support or refute this theory.
