Putin Declares 4 Annexed Regions “Ours Forever”, Blames US For Nord Stream Attacks

from ZeroHedge:

Update(10:23ET): With the ink drying on the official annexation declarations newly signed by the heads of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions in Friday’s historic ceremony – the key takeaway from President Putin’s lengthy speech is that he declared a “mission accomplished” of sorts. He said these eastern and southern provinces are now part of Russia “forever”. He even touted that the referendums were accomplished in line with the UN charter on self-determination for all peoples, and vowed “They have made their choice… this is the only path to peace. We will protect our land using all our forces and we will protect their security. We will of course rebuild all destroyed towns and continue building hospitals, theaters, and schools.”

Are Jews Again Driving the Western World Into a Fatal War?

My interest is the predominance of propaganda and lies over truth. Ron Unz has the same interest. Four months after my column, “The Lies About World War II,” ( https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2019/05/13/the-lies-about-world-war-ii/ ) appeared, Unz took the story further in his long report, “Understanding World War II” ( http://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-understanding-world-war-ii/ ). Unz’s columns tend to be monographs or small books, well beyond the attention spans of most Americans. Unz gave me permission to republish his monograph in installments. This is the first installment: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2019/11/19/the-truth-about-world-war-ii-is-beginning-to-emerge-74-years-later/ and this is the second: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2022/09/15/understanding-world-war-ii/ These three articles were for a couple of years the most read of the material on my website.

Trump Warns of Nuke War, Ian the Destroyer, Vax the Killer

by Greg Hunter, USA Watchdog:

President Trump is openly warning about the possibility of nuclear war with Russia over Ukraine.  Trump has offered to negotiate a peace deal, but no one is taking him up on his offer.  Instead, the U.S. Congress has approved a fresh $12 billion to keep it all going.  There are zero peace talks going on now, and Biden and NATO do not want them.  They want war, and it’s only a matter of time with the latest blowing up of the Nord Stream Pipelines that carry natural gas  from Russia to Germany.

Corporate Media Silent as Ukraine Uses NATO Weapons to Kill Innocent Civilians in the Donbass

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Last week, Ukraine slaughtered 16 civilians, including two children, with 155mm NATO shells, according to the head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Denis Pushilin. The projectiles hit two adjacent neighborhoods, decimating residential and commercial areas – including a market that had previously suffered fatal attacks.

Scenes of death are nothing new for residents and reporters here in Donetsk, which is intermittently the target of Ukrainian attacks, like the one that hit its central region on August 4, killing six people, including an 11-year-old ballerina, her grandmother, and her ballet teacher.

“Thank You, USA”: Polish MEP Praises U.S. For Destroyed Nord Stream Pipelines

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

Polish MEP Radoslaw Sikorski, who attended the Bilderberg meeting in DC earlier this year together with his arch-neocon wife Anne Applebaum, openly “thanked” the US for the destruction of the Nord Stream pipelines in a post Tuesday on Twitter.

“Thank you, USA,” Sikorski said on Twitter, sharing a photograph of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline leaking massive amounts of gas into the ocean off the coast of Denmark’s Bornholm island.

How America Is Crushing Europe

by Eric Zuesse, The Duran:

America creates, imposes, and enforces the sanctions against Russia, which are forcing up energy-prices in Europe, and are thereby driving Europe’s corporations to move to America, where taxes, safety-and-environmental regulations, and the rights of labor, are far lower, and so profits will be far higher for the investors. Furthermore, America can supply its own energy. Therefore, supply-chains are less dicey in the U.S. than in Europe. There is less and less reason now for a firm to be doing anything in Europe except selling to Europeans, who are becoming increasingly desperate to get whatever they can afford to buy, now that Russia, which had been providing the lowest-cost energy and other commodities, is being strangled out of European markets, by the sanctions.
