Watching Europe Unravel



Looks like there's a better than average chance that Great Britain will leave the EU. That could very well be one of major nails in the European Union's coffin. The union was suffering economically before it got hit with a major refugee crisis. There are a number of member countries where membership no longer makes any sense. Greece is the big one, but Portugal, Spain and Italy aren't that far behind.

We can't talk about the EU without mentioning NATO. There's speculation that Russia could take over the Balkan countries in 60 hours. The situation is supposed to get better sometime in 2017. That just tells me that 2016 is especially dangerous.

Poland is certainly paying attention. It's going all out to increase its tank force and is acquiring other armored vehicles. They have their own tank factories but are also buying Leopard tanks. The country is also addressing gaps in its air defenses. They are acting like a country that's going to need all that military hardware.

To make things even more interesting there's crazy talk in the Pentagon. Some planners believe that tactical nukes could be used on the battlefield without it escalating. Now I might not be a military genius, but just maybe using tactical nukes might soon lead to strategic nukes? That's been the assumption in the past.

So we have a perfect storm of factors: economic, political and military. One can only hope that cooler heads will prevail.

    why the gov't. is committing suicide is beyond me.
    of course, none of us understand most of what they are up to.
    it appears stupid but there must be some sinister goal behind it all.

    1. There definitely are those who benefit from war, but it's not us little guys.

  3. Just my opinion but, if we don't vote out EVERY sitting politician (even the so-called good ones) the next two election cycles we deserve what we get!

    1. What? You think voting matters? If it did they wouldn't let us do it. Feeling a bit cynical right now.

  4. The CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) along with the UN's Agenda 21 elites have deemed that there are 6 billion too many on this rock.

    This appears to be part of their solution to 'thin the herd?'

    1. People at level don't think of the average person as even being human. That makes those heartless decisions much easier.

  5. China, Russia, Ukraine, Cuba, Venezuela, Syria, ISIS, Bokko Harram and so many others; none of it is happening by accident. It is happening on purpose because you have an administration supported by a large part of society that naively believes that the USA is to blame for all the wrong in the world and seeks to obliterate any shred of traditional American values. They promote the false ideal that if we simply love them, they will love us back. And it is simply not so. When we deny reality and put forth that attitude, they look at us with disdain and contempt and as a bunch of idiots. And they will do anything and everything to take advantage of us to further their nefarious causes.

    1. Still reminds me of all the mistakes made leading up to WWI. Things went seriously sideways then. Things are going seriously sideways now.

  7. bit of advice

    start living in your own world while the old one croaks; or you be mindlessly sucked into their doom

    and being prepared and living better as the worst occurs is no sin

    live long and happy
