This situation has been building up for years. There was an understanding, when the Soviet Union collapsed or, more accurately, faded away, that NATO would not expand its membership or operations.
NATO, after all, only existed in the first place as a solidification of the Western alliance of the Second World War, and then only because of the massive Soviet military presence both in the western Soviet Union itself and also in Eastern and Central Europe: the “Pribaltika” (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania), Poland, the DDR/East Germany, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and, until 1955, Austria (the last foreign troops occupying Austria left in 1955). NATO was established in 1949, the Warsaw Pact in 1955 (after West Germany joined NATO). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_Pact.
The USA (really NWO) also established the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) on the other side of the Eurasian landmass.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact ceased to exist (formally in 1991, but in reality from 1989-90).
There was an opportunity in the early 1990s for a real partnership between the West and the former Soviet Union, but it failed for several reasons: among others, the wish for nominal “independence” on the part of areas that had been part of the Soviet Union and, before then, the Russian Empire; the wish on the part of “Western” companies, law firms etc to exploit Russian and other people and resources; a wish on the part of the NWO to rule Russia, in effect; the collaboration of Jew “oligarchs” with the “Western” gameplan in the Yeltsin era.
The Confederation of Independent States [“CIS”] was, unfortunately, blown apart by the combination of post-Soviet nationalism(s) (in Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Georgia etc) and the infiltration of American military activities into the newly-independent states around Russia.
Some of the former satellites (Poland etc), were keen to join NATO after their experience of Soviet occupation, and effective Soviet rule, over many decades.
NATO has, since the 1980s, got involved in South-Central Asia, the Middle East etc. Far from its original geographical area and purpose. It is the NWO battering-ram.
We have seen NATO “pushing the envelope” over recent years; not only in Ukraine, but in Georgia and elsewhere. However, things have now progressed to the point at which Russia cannot accept more encroachment.
The Soviet Union had an ideology of world domination, albeit muted in latter decades. It was a serious danger to Western Europe. Russia now has no such ideology, and is basically defensive. It poses no danger to Western Europe, unless constantly provoked.
The USA is now beefing up the forces of the Kiev government, so Russia would be advised to strike earlier rather than later.
There should be an institute, similar to SS-Ahnenerbe but focussed more on the future rather than (only) on the historical and prehistorical past, to examine all such questions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahnenerbe.
On this day a year ago
I am, by synchronous co-incidence, just re-reading one of Bentine’s memoirs, The Door Marked Summer. I did have a couple of other books by him, but they were lost, along with most of my 2,000+-book library, when I returned, unwillingly, to the UK from France in 2009.
An interesting character, whom I recall seeing on TV in the early 1970s. A man of many parts, and many talents, though with a few obsessions and, in some respects, narrowness of view. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Bentine.
One of Bentine’s most interesting recounted experiences was when he and his father accompanied someone (obviously some kind of occult initiate) to a hidden place in a Kent wood at night, not long before the Second World War, and where they were greeted by the entire realm of Nature present, animals, birds, insects, and plants.
Great. Let’s invite 5 million Hong Kong Chinese to come and live in Britain. Oh, no, wait…
The invaders are now using larger and better-equipped boats.
I always thought of Canada as a “free” country…not now. Is there no-one who can rid the country of that global-conspiracy puppet?
Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan: see https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/.
Was interested to see the proportion of facemask-wearers at Waitrose in the early evening. About 20%. The facemask nonsense has had its time in the sun, at least until what passes for a government in the UK finds an excuse to re-impose the nonsense.

Hello: The comments were more revealing than I expected and confirmed my suspicions. Since, let’s say the 1980s, the physical quality of the soldiers and the standards in the British army have dropped abysmally. Ironically, now that the army is so small the authorities could afford to be very finicky about the quality of the soldiers, but obviously, they (the authorities) are crap and so are the soldiers. But, what can we expect? An army is just a reflection of the society/country it represents.
Yes, an army is a reflection of the general society. I know that the British forces generally have been struggling both to recruit personnel and to recruit suitably fit and reliable personnel.
