Food For Thought.

Reported initially by The Financial Times (London) and it gives a nice background, granted that such decisions and debates take a fairly long time, for a HMS Defender playing with death in Russia’s territorial waters. As I always say, it never is a single reason, it is always a combination of reasons which produces a resultant, like with vectors in Physics. This clarifies it a bit. 

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, backed by French President Emmanuel Macron, reportedly wants the EU to consider “selective engagement” with Russia on issues of common interest and inviting President Vladimir Putin to a summit. French and German diplomats “wrongfooted” other EU member states at a meeting in Brussels on Wednesday by proposing to invite Putin to a summit with the bloc’s leaders, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday, citing “people with knowledge of the discussions.”
Get it?  RT elaborates:
According to FT, the Franco-German proposal is “likely” to alarm Poland and the Baltic States, which are hostile to Moscow. It was also put forward shortly after the incident in the Black Sea, in which a Russian patrol ship and fighter jet fired warning shots at a British warship that violated their territorial waters near Crimea. As I already stated above, such conclusions are never spontaneous and are in works for many days, if not many weeks or even months. That puts British adventurism into a new light and immediate reaction of Franco-German tandem to British provocation is a huge story in itself. I already had an exchange on that with Arctic Fox and Larch445 and here is what Larch, correctly, proposed:

 

Imagine for a moment you are in one of the US vassal states. A top official. You find yourself examining your country is tethered to a global creature that is coming apart socially, crippled by debt and derivatives, led by a brain-dying President who is backed up by an empty-headed muffin for VP, and represented by a military that can’t win wars anywhere. You certainly don’t want to stay tethered for when the collapse comes. You also see that in order for it to survive, the global creature needs to ruin your economy, take your technology and best brains, steal your market share for its products and sell you energy at 120% of the going rate. You see a wide open door toward your East. You see opportunity to operate again for the first time in 75 years as a sovereign state. You see growth and financial reward, employment for your labor force, and nations that mean what they say and say what they mean, and who deliver what they contract for. What do you do to get off the tether? Act alone or with others? When do you make a move? Germany and France certainly are in this dilemma. South Korea also, with special consideration concerning NK. Hungary, if it were larger, definitely would break away.This all has larger implications for Anglo-Saxondom at-large, whose post-WW II iteration of Pax Americana simply ran its course and continental Europe is in a dilemma, an existential one, with one of the options being a complete death of the Western Civilization. But here we are getting into a completely different dynamics which requires extensive elaborations on the subject which Ilana Mercer titled “Why Do WASP Societies Whither?” in her excellent treatise on the fate of white South African population. But this Franco-German “idea” is an illuminating fact of the actual hidden fight within European “elites” some of who may have gotten the idea that they will be next in line for being eaten. London is worrying, or should we say…calling;))) Wink, wink. 

 

The ice age is coming, the sun’s zooming in 

Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin 

A nuclear error, but I have no fear 

‘Cause London is drowning, and I live by the river…

 

Well, you know how it goes…
