SCENARIO: "Airspace over Eastern Europe is contested. Article 5 of NATO Treaty was activated. Within hours, hundreds of fighter jets from the US/NATO transfer to Germany to fly against Russia. Nuclear-capable F-35 stealth aircraft are prepped for deployment – the first hours of a major war have dawned."
This scenario is the basis for the upcoming NATO "Air Defender 23" exercise ..."
which takes place from the 12th to the 24th of June.
The air war is simulated against an imaginary enemy who himself has a potent air force. The real meaning of this exercise is clear to anyone with a brain: Russia.
The maneuvering may still be cautious in their public communication, but Michael A. Loh, general of the US Air National Guard, expressed his motivation some time ago. In 2021, with a view to „ Air Defender “, he wished that his people „ think more about our impending dangers – China and Russia “.
The maneuver is carried out according to the principle „ Train as you fight “. Areas of application, tactics, logistics – everything should be as realistic as possible. It is therefore no coincidence that Germany becomes the central hub of the exercise. In an emergency, too, countless NATO jets would start and swarm out of German airfields. The flight routes that the fighter planes will test are just as realistic. They lead to the eastern borders of the NATO area, to the Russian and Ukrainian borders.
At first glance, what looks like a brazen but usual provocation is a tangible danger to world peace in times of war. An accident with Russian military aircraft, misguided navigation or a pilot error may be sufficient to make a training flight appear like an attack. It becomes particularly threatening if Ukraine uses the NATO exercise's slipstream to carry out attacks, while Russian air surveillance is forced to pursue NATO activities. Russian territory is currently being bombarded almost every day, and the Ukrainian president is threatened with major attacks. The escalation potential of a Ukrainian military strike while NATO jets are patrolling nearby is obvious in this situation.
The federal government is not only willing to accept these enormous risks, it even suspends the usual security measures. Russian observers who could ensure that the exercise is not used to prepare for an attack are not invited. There shouldn't even be a formal announcement. "We will not write them a letter. They will understand the news when our planes swarm out “, the highest German air force general Ingo Gerhartz replied at the beginning of April to the question of how Russia is informed.
This move away from an insurance policy is accompanied by a fight against diplomacy. Last week the Federal Republic of the Russian Federation banned the operation of four consulates. They must be closed by the end of the year.
So, shortly before the NATO exercise, the relationships are further burdened and important communication channels are sabotaged. The federal government appears to be doing everything it can to drive an escalation and increase the risk that the exercise could become a bitter reality.
NATO and its ilk have to decide very quickly. Obviously, the Ukraine offensive has stalled. It is indeed a question if Ukraine army is even capable of holding their positions or not. And the Russian army is making small but constant advances. It is probable that Ukraine army and state is on the verge of collapse. Because of that, it is time to make a decision. Either NATO enters officially into conflict or Ukraine is lost.
Of course, best moment to attack Russian army would be when all NATO equipment and personal are in Europe and are practicing that type of scenario. We only need a fabricated reason for war. Something like 9/11 at the WTC.
History shows the US federal government is perfectly willing to engage in treachery to cause the US to be involved in a major war.
In World War 2, the Roosevelt Administration KNEW the Japanese were coming to attack Pearl Harbor. They knew days in advance. While they told the US Military "you may be attacked" there was no ironclad statement that an attack WAS already on its way. The Japanese attack on December 7, 1941 caused the date to live in infamy. The American military was used as canon fodder to get hit and killed, bringing the US into the war.
The Gulf of Tonkin incident was an actual fabrication by the US to get us into the Vietnam War.
Former Secretary of State, Colin Powell, sat at a UN Security Council meeting, held up a glass jar containing ANTHRAX, and told Security Council members that Saddam Hussein of Iraq had "tons" of this bio-weapon and could destroy half the world. In to Iraq we went. We destroyed much of Iraq, searched high and low, but guess what? No weapons of mass destruction! It was all lies.
In 2014, the US, EU fomented, incited, and facilitated the forcible overthrow of Ukraine's President, Vikto Yanukovich, then funded a puppet government favorable tot he West. The US/EU want to place American missiles on Ukraine soil, with a five minute or so flight time to Moscow. Russia said "no." The West said "Too fucking bad."
In December 2021, Russia tried to negotiate ironclad, legally enforceable security guarantees. The West laughed and basically threw Russia's Diplomatic proposals in the trash can.
The Russians tried again, only this time warning that if Russia could not obtain ironclad, legally enforceable, security guarantees, via DIPLOMATIC means, they would attain them via military, or military-technical means. The West again quashed the Russian proposals.
On February 24, 2022, after giving Ukraine a five hour ultimatum that went unanswered, the Russian Army went into Ukraine. The West was mortified. It was never within the realm of possibility to them, that Russia would actually DO what Russia said they would do!
Here we are, over a year later, the war rages, hundreds of thousands are dead, and now NATO is (coincidentally) preparing its largest air defense exercise in history . . . right next to the Russia-Ukraine major conflict . . . where any misstep can open up the hellscape of World War 3.
Given the US track record of lying to get us into actual wars, is it any stretch of the imagination to believe that NATO and the US will do so again, four or so days from now?
Let me ask you: If, one day soon, you're up in the morning doing what you usually do, and suddenly, the Emergency Broadcast System tones start coming out of your cellphone, or your nearby radio, or on your TV, and the announcement tells you "The United States is under nuclear attack from Russia, take shelter immediately." what's the first thing you would do?
For most people, they have no friggin idea . . . . at all. Do you call your spouse? Do you make a mad dash to get the kids from school? (You and everybody else . . . and find an instant "Mad Max" scenario on the roads.)
Do you have __any__ emergency food, water, medicine for after the bombs hit and the country is collapsing?
Do you actually think you'll be able to go to the supermarket and buy food? Upon a nuke blast, do you think your credit/debit cards will actually work so you can buy food? Nope!
Better start thinking about these things, because the way things are going, four days from now could see your whole world change.
