The US pushes for NATO build up. Troops and ships in the Baltic and elsewhere hope to provoke Russia to break its economy with a military build up. The Russians say a land army is a waste of money. They have no intention of invading the Baltic region. Instead they've allied with China and depend on nukes for defense. As we deploy to Poland and elsewhere in Eastern Europe, the response time of Russia to a perceived nuclear attack grows shorter. The probability of human survival is directly proportional to that response time. At what chronic margin must Putin decentralize the response command, in order to assure the launch? How many sub-commanders can be expected to maintain cool enough heads to avert a tragedy of errors?
So why are we trying to provoke Russia? It has to do with, among other things, arms sales to the NATO block. Our masters want to keep selling arms to us and our allies and anyone else with good enough credit to borrow the money from them to buy the hardware. That goes for everything else we and our government borrow from them to buy from them.
Conservative politician say they won't tax the rich masters and they'll end government debt too. Fat chance their masters will allow the latter. The rich like making money coming and going and the politicians of both parties, with rare and powerless progressive exceptions among the Democrats, will after all is said, do the bidding of those who own them and most of everything else.
Admittedly, you'll be much happier if you take all they say at face value. If you believe that Russia will invade Poland, encourage the deployment of first strike nukes there. Maybe they'll take out the Russian retaliatory capability before it can be launched. After all, they aren't unstable enough to launch the first first strike. Are they?
I wonder if the rich masters plan to take farmers and other worker/servants into their bunkers to make their utopia possible after Armageddon? Will the new feudal reality be the surviving lords and their perpetual dependents? Is that prospect really much different, except by more perfect decentralization (state's/individual master's rights to virtually enslave local citizens) and scale, than what we have today under the thumbs of Wall St. oligarchs?
