China will react if provoked again: you risk the war, by Andre Vltchek

Interview with Andre Vltchek

The AntiDiplomatico (Italy) interviews philosopher, Andre Vltchek: “Russia and China are forming an incredible defensive wall to protect humanity from Western terrorism.”

 By Alessandro Bianchi

Andre Vltchek has become renowned in Italy for being the co-author, along with Noam Chomsky, of the famous book “Western Terrorism” (Ponte alle Grazie).

A documentary filmmaker, novelist, essayist, philosopher and intellectual, multi-faceted Vltchek is the cosmopolitan man par excellence, a “true revolutionary” as he likes to call himself. In recent years with his camera and his extraordinary commitment against injustice on this planet he has explored every corner of the Earth and taken over the length and breadth of Western terrorism, one that our media likes to censor and hide from our consciences.

After the interviews with the great Australian journalist John Pilger and the famous American playwright John Steppling, we have the honor and privilege of speaking to our great friend of l’AntiDiplomatico, asking some questions on burning current international issues.

Q: I start from a brutal question: What has become of a country that it offering Donald Trump as its ‘best candidate’?

AV: It is not much different from the country that it used to be for decades, even centuries. Since the beginning, the US presidents (all of European stock, of course), had been promoting slavery, extermination campaigns against the native population of North America, barbaric wars of aggression against Mexico, and other Latin American countries, the Philippines, etc. Has anything changed now? I highly doubt it. Donald Trump is horrendous, but he is also honest. Both Presidents Clinton and Obama were great speakers, but unrepentant mass murderers.

Q: In a recent survey over 53% of Americans were against both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. How long will we continue to consider the United States a democracy? And why, in your opinion, is abstention the only form of “rebellion” by a population completely excluded from the decision-making stage?

AV: “Democracy” means nothing else other than, “rule of the people”, in Greek. There is nothing democratic about the political concepts of the United States and Europe. And there is absolutely nothing democratic about the “global arrangement” through which the West has been ruling over the rest of the world for decades and centuries. The second part is, I’m convinced, much more important, much more devastating; in the West, people have been tolerating their insane political system, in exchange for the countless privileges they are getting from their countries’ plundering of the planet, and violating entire nations and continents. But in Africa, Asia and elsewhere, those “un-people” have no choice at all.

Q: Is Bernie Sanders really the change that many in Europe have described?

AV: Bernie Sanders is like those liberal members of the German National Socialist Party during the WWII, or of the Italian Fascist movement during Mussolini. They’d do much for their own workers and peasants, socially… as long as funds were flowing in from the countries plundered by their imperialism. Under Bernie Sanders, Western workers would definitely do much better, but the rest of the world, the “wretched of the Earth” would still have to pay the bill.

Q: What would happen to the world under a Hillary Clinton’s presidency?

AV: Nothing exceptional – things would stay the same: sponsorship of “Color” or “Umbrella” or whatever “revolutions”, some more coups, “regime changes”, direct invasions, bombing, propaganda warfare against China, Russia, Iran, South Africa and what is left of the Latin American revolutions. There would be plenty of torture in “secret centers”, but it would not be as advertised and glorified as it would be if Trump were elected. World War III would become a great possibility, but such a scenario is quite possible under any new US administration… To answer your question: business as usual.

American Attack on the EU & the World, by Jorge Trevino

A Reader’s  Letter:

Lot’s has been written on the recent and multi American attacks on Russia, China and Latin America but few have been said about American containment against the European Union (EU). Western Europe or EU-NATO’s Europe has been historically seen as the closest American ally but I won’t refer them as the “Western world” as this is only a vague concept that covers up America and its main vassal states rebuilt after the WWII and during the Cold War in order to create an imaginative sense of belonging that could facilitate the American control on all of the Western Europe under the US umbrella via Brussels.

Once the Ukraine and Syria conflicts escalated with the participation of Russia on a spectacular coming back to the international arena from the ashes of the Soviet Union after a long break since the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Boris Yeltsin’s bottle of vodka’s regime, the US set up a package of economic sanctions and politic pressures against Russia that have also hurt the US historic allies in Europe.

On the economic side it is well known that some European economic sectors are willing to end the sanctions as losses reach the billions of dollars, financial resources that are well needed within Europe’s low growth economies. At the same time and on the politic side, essential and long term American allies in Europe such as France and Germany have seen weakened their traditional leading role to their peers of Eastern Europe which from nowhere have started to take decisions at the highest level on what to do or not against Russia but also on strategic issues such as energy, foreign policy and military subjects.

The three Baltic States, Poland, Scandinavia and Rumania have taken the lead on Russia’s American containment with little to say from the former politic and economic hearts in Paris and Berlin, respectively. The former invincible German Chancellor Angela Merkel has Germany trapped in Turkish Erdogan’s blackmail of flooding Europe with refugees from the Middle East taken as hostages from what America has left after five years of simulated conflict against ISIS that we now know was nothing but a sick pathetic joke. As a result, Merkel has nothing to do but push for keeping the sanctions over Russia no matter whether it’s obvious that the economic sanctions are making Europe’s businesses a hostage of American failed military interventions and Ottoman’s own agenda in the region.

So all this take us to the following scenario: Europe, the ancient continent envy of the whole world and land of the brightest civilisations is now under threat on four fronts:

  1. The Atlantic front by the U.S. punishing its European “best friends” not only halting them of making business with Europe’s big brother but also pushing them straight into a possible military crash against Russian’s nuclear capacity, while at the same time Europe is being attacked by getting millions of refugees from Turkey if they don’t fulfil Erdogan’s imperial whims.
  1. The Eastern front by the emboldened micro Baltic republics, Ukraine, Poland, Rumania and more recently the Scandinavian states pushing dangerously toward Russian borders where no one knows where they will stop, or even if they will stop.
  1. The Southern front by Ottoman’s Turkey rebirth blackmailing Europe on a quite vulgar attitude of “Do as I say or attend the consequences and mess around with more millions of refugees Turkey can just let through into European’s territory.
  1. And the Internal front where 28 European members are pushing for their own agenda despite the union’s well being that in theory should be the one that prevailed. The smallest and poorest republics of Europe are now the decision makers of the EU under the American mentorship. It seems that George Orwell’s novel The Animal Farm published in 1945 predicted what was to happen in Europe 66 years later, the rule of the pigs! And there’s nothing that shows that the European governments have noticed that the Americans are targeting them too under an Americanism global reign where no one but them are to rule the world. Europeans didn’t pay attention to State Department’s officer Victoria Nuland’s of “Fuck Europe” when the Ukraine coup in 2014. That’s the core of the American foreign policy once they come up with a global Monroe’s Doctrine. It looks like the EU’s old leadership of Berlin can’t even put on track the North Stream pipeline on track bypassing the Ukraine through the Baltic Sea because the micro Baltic States refuse to give it a go following their local narrow anti-Russian agenda backed by the hawks in Washington.

So who is the sole winner of this entire situation where the EU, Russia, China, Iran, South America as a whole among many others are under siege on a macabre game where everyone is playing a vassal while the U.S. is successfully (so far) re-gaining its glory and global ruling they once had?
