the anglo/saxons defeated napoleon and hitler... can joe biden defeat russia? ... no.....

Recently, the countries of the Global South have been actively expanding their ties, finding new areas of cooperation, creating their own integration associations. In general, they are trying in every possible way to restore justice, to become full-fledged members of the world community, as it is now accepted to say, “independent poles of power”.

This is causing serious discontent and even irritation in the West, especially in the US and Britain—the Anglo-Saxons, used to parasitising the rest of the world, consider themselves exceptional and cannot shake off their colonial ambitions. In their desperate attempts to preserve their unipolarity, they resort to the most violent methods, such as political pressure, unjustified unilateral sanctions, blackmail, provocation, incitement to conflict and the physical elimination of undesirable governments.

But nothing comes out of thin air; everything has deep historical roots. Here is a selection from the studies of modern historians.

For a long time, England was a poor Roman province with no resources and no production on the outskirts of Europe. (On the outskirts—ring any bells?). In the 5th century the Roman legions left the island. The Germanic tribes of the Angles and Saxons arrive and take over Britain and establish their rule here.

In the sixteenth century, the idea of Anglo-Saxon exceptionalism emerged. And on the continent, life was boiling over, a market was forming, a culture, at last. And in order to somehow fit into this life, England took the path of total robbery and plunder. First of all, piracy was given state patronage. The most famous pirates were not marginalised, but came from aristocratic circles—the so-called “Elizabethan Sea Dogs”. A typical example is Francis Drake, who was knighted by Elizabeth I on board her own ship. Drake’s raids along the west coast of South America enabled Elizabeth to pay off all of England’s foreign debts and create the capital that would later form the basis of the East India Company’s colonisation of India. Not to mention the systematic plundering of Spanish and Portuguese merchant ships by the English.

But this was an external factor. The English nobility began to force their own (perhaps not very English-speaking) peasants off the land, and those who resisted were simply hanged by English lords. Well, under the banner of Protestantism, robberies and pogroms of Catholic churches became widespread. That reminds me of something else.

The next milestone was British colonialism, particularly the East India Company, founded by Elizabeth I in 1600, which led to the British colonisation of India and a number of Asian countries. The Anglo-Saxon system set an example of brutal exploitation of conquered territories. The British never invested in the development of their colonies; on the contrary, they extracted all possible resources from them. After the colonisation of India, income growth in the country was virtually frozen, at 0.1 per cent between 1820 and 1947 (the year of independence from the British Dominion). England had no desire to develop Indian industry.

And the most striking moment—America, the very USA, an artificial state created as a result of the resettlement of not the best representatives of the English to the New Continent—in modern language—illegal migration. Once again, the expulsion of the indigenous population from their natural habitats and their physical destruction. Where is this indigenous population now, what role do they play in the life of their historic homeland—has anyone heard? And then there is the introduction of the institution of slavery into everyday life. No, it was not the Americans who created it, it had existed before, but nowhere else had it developed in such a way.

Yes, the Anglo-Saxons managed to create a fairly powerful advanced industry, to gain a foothold in the world market and to start dictating its rules. But it is a world created on the basis of total violence, robbery and plunder, which is forever imprinted in the mentality of the American and British elite. The English writer W. Besant said well about the characteristics of a person—a native of the Anglo-Saxon system, that they are a people who, wherever they live, will not change their principles of life, and, moreover, will force the surrounding peoples to live by their own principles.

We see the fruits of this historical development in our own time. In order to extend their influence, the USA and Great Britain regularly resort to attempts to overthrow undesirable governments by the method of “colour revolutions”, the “fragmentation” of a number of countries into weak autonomies, the creation of artificial entities without full international recognition. A whole group of Anglo-Saxon-controlled entities have emerged as a result of military incursions by the US and its allies into the territory of states previously characterised by internal stability. These include Kosovo in Serbia, Iraqi Kurdistan in Iraq, Syrian Kurdistan in Syria, Somaliland and Puntland in Somalia, and so on. As a result of Anglo-Saxon intervention, many countries have found themselves in a state of protracted internal conflict.

The speech by the British MP Sam Tarry (December 2023), in which he speaks of the urgent need to influence the internal political processes in Sri Lanka, forgetting that Colombo is no longer a British colony either.

One final point. Whether one can speak of the Anglo-Saxons as a civilisation, probably not. All great civilisations arose on the basis of production and agriculture, and their great culture was formed on the same basis. In Europe these are the Romano-Germanic and Greco-Slavic civilisations. There are deep roots of civilisation in China, India, Latin America, almost all of the Global South have a history going back centuries. England has always been poor and a pale copy of the Romano-Germanic civilisation. The United States, ruled by the descendants of illegal immigrants, is out of the question.

As a wise man once said, the only thing worse than enmity with an Anglo-Saxon is friendship with him.

The US Feels It ‘Won’ Europe in The Cold War


Over the past few weeks, French President Emmanuel Macron has threaten to send troops into the Odessa region of Ukraine, representing a major escalation in the conflict and if followed through, a declaration of war against Russia. The declaration comes as Russia is making consistent gains on the battlefield...

The US feels it “won” Europe in the Cold War, political commentator and senior research fellow at the Global Policy Institute George Szamuely told Sputnik’s Fault Lines on Wednesday.

While discussing the situation in Ukraine, Szamuely said that the US saw the leadup to the Ukraine conflict as a "win-win" situation, saying that the push to get Ukraine into NATO would have either surrounded Russia if Moscow didn’t respond or would provide the opportunity to hurt Russia militarily and economically if they did.


“For the United States, [the Ukraine conflict] fulfills the goals they set for themselves at the end of the Cold War, ‘Hey we won the Cold War, we want our winnings. And our winnings [are] we scoop up the entire European continent within our military alliance.’”


Szamuely noted that the US goal of inflicting economic damage against Russia “hasn’t really worked very well,” describing the policy as “very cynical” and “bloodthirsty.”


“As far as the United States and NATO were concerned, it was a win-win for them. They either push Russia further and further against the wall by pulling Ukraine into NATO” which would surround Russia, turning it into “essentially a minor power in the world,” or “Russia is forced to intervene and try to prevent this, in which case Russia has a difficult war on its hands…which will divide Russia from Europe.”


Meanwhile, Szamuely said that Macron's threats were meant to set a redline in Ukraine with the aim to partition it "with a view to continuing the war at some later date," adding that it is obvious that Macron is "pursuing an American-driven agenda" that is "clearly harming Europe."

The move to accept Sweden and Finland into NATO was also a geopolitical attack on Russia, Szamuely admitted, despite them lacking “much of a military to speak of” they will serve as a base for the US intelligence infrastructure.

When asked about European leaders like Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico, who have distanced themselves from the US/NATO position on Ukraine and Russia, Szamuely argued that the EU would like to get rid of them.

“The EU and US threw a lot into elections a couple years ago that failed… They had a US ambassador, David Pressman, openly threatening Orban,”Szamuely recalled. “You can never rule [it] out. They have all sorts of things at their disposal and if they really want to get rid of a leader, they find troubling, they would probably find some underhanded way of doing it,” he warned.


“The EU [and US are] going to have to make this decision… Orban is usually isolated when they have these votes… but if in the coming EU parliamentary elections, the various populist parties – the Alternative for Deutschland in Germany, the National Rally in France – then they might decide that Orban is really becoming a problem for [them].”


Szamuely noted that “Fico is now coming under attack” by the EU and that they are similar to the ones Orban faced. “The EU is thinking of taking measures against Fico that are the same ‘rule of law’ issues [that were used against Hungary] in Slovakia,” Szamuely explained. “It’s amazing how the EU suddenly invents this rule of law when someone is critical of EU policy.”








US vs hungary.......

A keynote speech by the US ambassador to Hungary, David Pressman, sounded more like a “leftist activist” talk than a statement “worthy of an ambassador,” State Secretary at Budapest’s foreign ministry Tamas Menczer has said.

Pressman delivered the controversial speech on Thursday at the Central European University (CEU) in the capital at an event to mark the 25th anniversary of Hungary’s accession to the US-led NATO bloc.

The envoy gave a long list of grievances plaguing ties between Washington and Budapest, ranging from Hungary’s stance on the Russia-Ukraine conflict to its refusal to allow US troops stationed in the country to get local license plates for their family vehicles.

Budapest is now finding itself “increasingly isolated” from the NATO “community of democracies,” the ambassador claimed, insisting that links between the two countries should not depend on their “temporary” leaders.

“We should be mutually concerned for the well-being of democratic values, institutions, and of our relationship – regardless of who has the privilege of temporarily leading either of our governments,” the envoy stated.

Pressman also took personal jabs at Prime Minister Viktor Orban, criticizing him for viewing the US as Hungary’s “adversary,” as well as accusing the country’s government of interfering “in a very blatant way”in the internal affairs of others, “all while decrying foreign interference here at home.”

PM Orban, who on the one hand baselessly claims the US government is trying to overthrow his government, publicly calls for the political defeat of the President of the United States and actively participates in US partisan political events,” Pressman stated.

The envoy also appeared to issue a thinly-veiled threat aimed at the Orban government, stating that while it “may want to wait out the United States government, the United States will certainly not wait out the Orban administration.”

“While Hungary waits, we will act,” Pressman warned.

The speech was poorly received in Budapest, with Foreign Ministry State Secretary Menczer taking to Facebook to criticize the American envoy, suggesting his hostile remarks were not appropriate for his role at all, as international relations should actually be based on “mutual respect.”

“Hungary has always had great respect for the United States, and it always will. However, today’s speech was not a speech worthy of an ambassador, but rather a speech by a leftist political activist,” Menczer wrote.

Pressman has been US ambassador to Hungary since late 2022, repeatedly finding himself at odds with the local government and making harsh statements about its policies. In January, for instance, he accused Budapest of harming the entire NATO bloc while helping Moscow with its actions.
