There’s a very interesting Twitter thread by Arnaud Bertrand (which can be more easily scanned on Threadreader) pointing out how many experts warned for years that Russia would not – could not – tolerate NATO membership for Ukraine.
Most fascinating thing about the Ukraine war is the sheer number of top strategic thinkers who warned for years that it was coming if we continued down the same path.
No-one listened to them and here we are.
. . .
It’s fair to say there has rarely been a conflict that so many strategic thinkers from the other camp saw coming and warned against for so many years, yet had their advice ignored.
This begs the question: why?
There’s more at the link, including supporting evidence such as documents, videos, etc.
I’m not going to copy all of the warnings and insights provided in the thread; but I do highly recommend that you click over there and read them for yourself. They raise a very important question. If so many warnings were given – by experts who were recognized in their field, and whose track record was exemplary – why were those warnings ignored? From whence came the constant, unrelenting pressure to draw Ukraine into NATO, and why? Was this conflict deliberately engineered?
Was this entire affair, and the current war in Ukraine, stage-managed by the same globalist oligarchs who tried to use COVID-19 to suppress freedom and individual rights worldwide? Was it a backup plan, to cause a war to use as a pretext to do the same thing if COVID-19 didn’t succeed in doing so? And – more importantly – what if it’s just another domino in a string of dominos that they’ve prepared, so that if one falls and fails, another will be triggered, and so on and so on until they achieve their goals?
This may sound like a conspiracy theory. I simply don’t know. On the other hand, I put together the COVID-19 catastrophe, followed by what looks more and more like a deliberately engineered war in Ukraine, and now the doom-and-gloom warnings about climate change that have suddenly been given new impetus, and I see precisely the same root to all the solutions proposed for all of them – namely, more government control, less individual freedom. I’m looking for more such carefully-prepared and engineered dominos to fall, exemplified by the World Economic Forum’s list of “global risks”, all of which can only be “solved” (according to the guidance of the “experts”) by increasing government power and decreasing individual liberty. If I see the latter, I’m going to suspect the former. It’s as simple as that. (The recent treatment of the trucker protests by the Canadian government is a great example.)
What say you, readers? Am I taking this too far, or is this a widespread perception?
