TRUMPETS OF WAR: Illegal Expulsion Of Russian Diplomats Is Global Crisis
The expulsion of Russia's ambassadors to UN is illegal and destabilization continues.
With the expulsion of Russian diplomats in the US and from more than 20 European countries, a new phase in the escalation of Western aggression against the Russian Federation and its allies begins. This is a critical moment, in which it is endangered by a violent confrontation on a global scale. To understand it, better refer to the following data and clues.
On Monday, March 26th, US President and magnate Donald Trump ordered the official expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats and the closure of the consulate in Seattle, Washington.
This is according to the statement from the White House Press Secretary: "The United States takes this action in conjunction with our NATO allies and partners around the world in response to the use of Russian chemical weapons of military grade on UK soil , the last in his ongoing pattern of destabilizing activities worldwide."
As mentioned, some NATO allies announced the expulsion of Russian diplomats. There were 17 member countries of the European Union (EU), plus Canada [4 diplomats] and Ukraine [13 diplomats]. Among Europeans are:
- Poland [4 diplomats],
- Lithuania [3 diplomats],
- Latvia [1 diplomat],
- Estonia [1 diplomat],
- Germany [4 diplomats],
- France [4 diplomats],
- Denmark [2 diplomats],
- Czech Republic [3 diplomats],
- The Netherlands [2 diplomats],
- France [4 diplomats],
- Italy [2 diplomats],
- Romania [1 diplomat],
- Finland [1 diplomat],
- Croatia [1 diplomat]
- and Sweden [1 diplomat].
The President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, had this to say about this diplomatic decision: "14 (sic) of 28 of the EU Member States decided to expel diplomats from the Russian Federation as a measure of solidarity with London in the Skripal case… Additional measures, including new sanctions in the EU common framework, can not be excluded in the coming days and weeks."
12 of the 60 diplomats expelled by the US were part of the Russian mission to the United Nations (UN). This measure is contrary to the basic norms of international law.
It should be noted that the expulsion of Russian diplomats is publicly "justified" by the so-called Skripal case, inferred by Tusk as the engine of the diplomatic play against Russia.
The manufactured Skripal case
Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were allegedly poisoned by a military-grade neurotoxic (Novichok) in the United Kingdom. The British government accuses Russia of being behind this incident, but did not provide evidence to confirm this claim. Despite this, the United States and other Western countries also rushed to accuse the Kremlin.
This resounded in the global public opinion and thus became a reason to attack Russia, as the target of a black propaganda operation that now involves the British directly and other European states committed as a political arm of the US in the EU, parallel to NATO.
Heiko Maas, German Foreign Minister, said that "the facts and the evidence suggest that Russia is behind this attack". This suggestion seems to be enough for a decision as delicate and multilateral as the expulsion of diplomats to be launched, which reveals the intention to escalate in the climate of confrontation against Russia. The fact that there is no need for evidence, exhaustive investigations or arrests leaves this act of belligerency in evidence.
On the other hand, the actual origin of the chemical used in the attack has not been confirmed. The different hypotheses show that the military agent may have been extracted from facilities outside of Russia. Even in September 2017, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons congratulated the Kremlin for having eradicated all its chemical material for war purposes.
At the same time, more and more experts and the media point out many strange facts related to the Skripal case and question the supposed Russian participation in it. Some of them go further, and call attention to a possible British trance behind the poisoning and describing the incident as a previously planned provocation.
The observed events, analysts suggest, were a movement previously planned by the Anglo-Saxon elite. Its objective is to isolate Russia and undermine the establishment of a multipolar order different from that established by the US as the only global hegemon after the Cold War of the twentieth century.
The Skripal case is one among the successive false flags that the Western powers have presented to promote conflict scenarios.
From the diplomatic to the military?
Precisely because the overall objective around the Skripal case and the latest diplomatic move is to increase the pressure on most countries associated with US policy, it is also intended to shape relations between EU state leaders in order to strengthen the world order after the Second World War, contrary to the multipolar pivoted by the main agents of Eurasia: China and Russia.
It will surely include a total domination of the Anglo-Saxon elites in the sphere of information and exploit the image of the "foreign enemy" to justify total control over their European, Canadian and Ukrainian “partners”. In other words, the Western powers will try to expand a model of a society of fear, a globalized state of exception, tested in Ukraine and other parts of the (third and fourth) world during the last four years, with the arrival of neo-Nazis to power.
The Skripal case is one of the steps on the way to this global goal. This type of action was predicted, since it was very possible an escalation caused by the presidential elections in Russia in mid-March, in which Vladimir Putin won overwhelmingly by more than 75% of the votes. In addition, in about 70 days the World Cup is played, the most important football tournament and that Russia has host, so it is tempted to boycott through diplomatic channels.
More steps like this, such as propaganda and covert operations of this kind, are announced as the United States and the United Kingdom tune the trumpets of war. The problem is that the multipolar world has reasons and strength to prevent an escalation of violence and a nuclear landscape.
That is the pulse that dominates this global moment.
