Thought for the day

"Today, every inhabitant of this planet must contemplate the day when this planet may no longer be habitable. Every man, woman, and child lives under a nuclear sword of Damocles, hanging by the slenderest of threads, capable of being cut at any moment by accident or miscalculation or by madness." -- John F. Kennedy

The Russian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday asked the EU to treat the US as a suspect in the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines, citing Polish MEP Radoslaw Sikorski "thanking" the US for the destruction of the pipelines and Joe Biden's "promise" that there "will be no longer a Nord Stream 2" if Russia invades Ukraine.

European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen confirmed the Nord Stream pipeline system leaks were caused by "sabotage," and warned of the "strongest possible response" should active European energy infrastructure be attacked. 

Earlier, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen described the three separate leaks on NS1 and NS2 as "deliberate acts," adding: "It’s hard to imagine that it’s accidental."

It is just a coincidence. The Baltic Sea is bubbling with gas escaping from the pipelines of the two Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines but it is only a coincidence that US President Joe Biden, on 7 February, in a joint conference with German Prime Minister Olaf Scholz, threatened to block those lines.

The best western journalists are overwhelmingly despised while the worst are acclaimed millionaires. Western civilization is built on lies, dependent on lies, powered by lies. Don’t seek widespread approval. It’s worthless.

Live long enough and you’ll learn that the people who’ll really hurt you and screw you over aren’t the obvious, overt monsters but the sly manipulators who smile to your face. The US empire is a sly manipulator smiling and posturing as the good guy by contrasting itself with overt monsters.

Billionaire George Soros is that rare megalomaniac who not only believes he’s a god but revels in behaving like one. “It’s a sort of a disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out,” he once boasted to The Independent.
