For some time now, the Western media has reported airspace violations and “an ‘unusual’ uptick in the size and scale of Russian aircraft flying throughout European airspace.” (1)  In mid-October Sweden suspected a Russian submarine had entered the Stockholm archipelago however ultimately no submarine was found. (2) Russia makes its own claims of Western aggression as well.

On Oct 25th the Russian Foreign Ministry’s press release stated the U.S. is ” making regular attempts to recruit our diplomats.” (3)  In his address to the U.N. General Assembly Sergey Lavrov stated, “Washington has openly declared its right to unilateral use of force anywhere to uphold its own interests.” (4)

Putin echoed this sentiment at the Valdai Club stating “The United States… instead of establishing a new balance of power, essential for maintaining order and stability, took steps that threw the system into sharp and deep imbalance. “(5)


Who benefits from all this back and forth saber rattling? President Obama answered that for us as he made what was considered an unusual trip to the Pentagon. While there, Obama asked Congress to remove the “draconian” budget strictures to “make sure that if we’re asking this much of our armed forces, that they’ve got the equipment and the technology that’s necessary for them to be able to succeed at their mission.” (7)

The Governor of Louisiana and Rhodes Scholar, Republican Bobby Jindal recently called for increased defense spending as well which highlights a bi-partisan political trend. (8)

The illusion of two-parties in the U.S. was further dispelled as the Democrats and Republicans both voted overwhelmingly to send troops to Syria. (9) Not only does the U.S. call for increases in military spending but Russia, with its poor economy and falling Rubel, will increase military spending by over twenty percent over the next year. (10)

NATO members require 2% of GDP military spending and are being asked to reverse trends of spending cuts. Norway’s Ine Eriksen Søreide recent call to “stop the decline in defense spending…..cuts need to be reversed ,” is in lock step with the U.S. (11) Due to political pressure, France is delaying delivery of Mistrial-class warships to Russia. (12) Non-NATO countries are getting on the war train as well as Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Löfven stated: “We need to increase our capacity, meaning that we need to put more resources into defense.” (13)

As world debt tops $100 Trillion is there any question why Russia and the U.S. would foment adversarial positions when many countries are eager to hop on the gravy train? (14)(15)


The political puppets are rehashing the old script from the past. By creating questionable confrontations and promoting propaganda in the State-controlled media the good cop bad cop scenario is played out. Vladimir Putin’s speech at Valdai sugests that world government may be the endgame:

“The world is full of contradictions today. We need to be frank in asking each other if we have a reliable safety net in place. Sadly, there is no guarantee and no certainty that the current system of global and regional security is able to protect us from upheavals…..It is my conviction that we could not take this mechanism of checks and balances that we built over the last decades, sometimes with such effort and difficulty, and simply tear it apart without building anything in its place”

Putin’s use of the word “us” in regards to security is no accident. He’s referring to the world as a single unified group i.e. One World Order. Some may call Putin’s speech a simple condemnation of U.S. aggression but his call for “community” are clear with statements like: “search for global solutions” and “one’s own models produces the opposite result. Instead of settling conflicts it leads to their escalation.”

In a nutshell, Putin and the U.S. have set up the final act where the good cop Putin condemns the cowboy and bad cop U.S. as a sales pitch for World Government. (5)
