Lithuanian President Demands Russia’s Red Lines Be Violated
Any attempt to prevent nuclear war is dismissed as “diplomatic pleasantries.”
Gitanas Nauseda, the president of Lithuania, has potentially signed a death warrant for 2.6 million of his fellow citizens.
According to the CIA’s main European propaganda conduit, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (sic),
Nauseda said in an interview with Lithuanian television on January 31 that fighter aircraft and long-range missiles were “essential military aid” and “at this crucial stage in the war, where the turning point is about to happen.” “These red lines must be crossed,” he added. The United States and Germany have so far ruled out such demands from Kyiv, though France says it is not against it in principle.
Nauseda is a neocon wannabe. In August 2019, before Russia’s SMO, he refused to talk or enter negotiations with Vladimir Putin over the growing tension in the neighborhood. “What could I be talking about with Mr President Putin at this point?” he said, according to the Baltic News Network.
“As long as we have the situation in Ukraine, as long as escalation of tensions continue in the entire region, I see no point in exchanging diplomatic pleasantries and, importantly, I haven’t got the moral right to do so – there is nothing to celebrate, tensions are felt throughout the region.”
Nauseda demands all red lines be crossed, behavior that will ultimately end in a nuclear conflagration. He characterizes the negotiation of differences as “diplomatic pleasantries” and argues that due to the fact his country is on the border with Russia, “we can see the true danger, the true risk,” while Europeans further West cannot.
However, last June, Berlin, and Vilnius agreed to “take preparations to expand the multinational NATO combat unit in Lithuania to the size of a brigade eventually,” Reuters reported.
The plan to increase the “multinational” effort to push additional troops and missiles up against a border shared with Russia was agreed to after consultations with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and the PMs of Latvia and Estonia.
In 2004, Lithuania became a full member of NATO. As such, it was permitted to join the effort to kill Afghans and occupy their country. “Since joining the Alliance in 2004,” Lithuania’s Ministry of National Defense proclaimed, “we have been actively involved in international NATO-led missions and operations in the Balkans, Afghanistan, where we have led the Provincial Reconstruction Team in Ghowr, Iraq and elsewhere. Lithuania continues to contribute to NATO’s missions and operations.”
Last February, as Russia prepared for its SMO to disarm, neutralize, and denazify Ukraine, a delegation of Lithuanian lawmakers begged the USG to permanently station foreign troops on its soil. In addition to “defending” itself from Russia, the Lithuanians argued neighboring Belarus is also a threat.
Belarus, according to the war propaganda media in the West, is “embattled, authoritarian,” and its decision to match the buildup of NATO troops in Eastern Europe with Russian Federation troops “is a major victory in Putin’s war with the West,” according to The Atlantic, a publication adopted by the Emerson Collective, “a left-of-center private grantmaking enterprise [established by Steve Jobs’ widow] that advocates for a wide variety of left-progressive causes,” according to Influence Watch.
As we now know, so-called “progressives” became warmongering neocons, or rather neolibs, after Obama basically destroyed the antiwar movement, a fact celebrated by The Washington Post.
This neutralization allowed Obama and his venom-spewing Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, to invade Libya, arm jihadis in Syria, continue the occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq, and sign off on the CIA kidnapping, torture at secret “black sites,” and executing alleged terror suspects (no evidence or trial required), in addition to dispatching Hellfire missile drones across the Middle East, killing hundreds, including American citizens.
Gitanas Nauseda and bureaucrats from across the Baltic states are clamoring for USG troops, and weapons systems, including Patriot and Avenger missiles.
In 2018, Lithuania “asked Washington to install the systems more regularly for exercises,” Reuters reported. “Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, once ruled from Moscow but now part of NATO and the European Union, need Western help despite growing defence budgets due to their small economies.”
Russia has no intention of invading the Baltics short of a possible threat, something that is a growing possibility now that the USG is in the neighborhood, working to arm these small European countries to the teeth, and urging them to engage in Russia bashing.
Last July, Vilnius increased restrictions on trade through its territory to Russia's Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad. The effort to isolate and persecute Russians in Kaliningrad is a NATO and EU objective.
“Lithuania said that its decision was taken after consultation with the European Commission, the EU’s executive arm,” the CNBC division of the USG war propaganda media reported.
After Russia told Lithuania “that Moscow would respond to its ban on the transit of goods sanctioned by the EU to Russia's exclave of Kaliningrad in such a way that citizens of the Baltic state would feel the pain,” the Baltic country backed off.
NATO had hoped the embargo of Russian goods along the Suwalki corridor to the Kaliningrad Oblast would open a new flash point in Eastern Europe. However, this did not pan out the way they expected.
“On the Polish-Lithuanian border, the West must respond to Russia’s actual capabilities rather than making assumptions about its intent,” declared Foreign Affairs, an adjunct of the Council on Foreign Relations, funded by the David Rockefeller Studies Program.
In other words, NATO must confront Russia no matter what it does, as Putin is the New Satan, a step-up from the New Hitler.
Lithuania, like Ukraine, is wholly expendable. Both are pawns, the weakest pieces on Zbigniew Brzezinski’s “Grand Chessboard” of “American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives.”
The “imperative” is not “democracy” for neo-nazis in Ukraine or their collaborators in Poland and Lithuania. It is a concerted effort to take down “competitors,” that is to say nations and leaders resistant to the neoliberal agenda of imposed poverty and theft of natural resources.
Russia will not allow this to happen. It has warned on numerous occasions that any existential threat imposed on the country will result in a nuclear conflict.
Biden’s war secretary, Lloyd Austin, has specifically come and said the objective is to weaken Russia and depose Vladimir Putin.
Insanity rules. Jennifer Rubin, a neocon who fled “conservatives” to support Biden, and is accused of writing “political pornography” for the CIA’s Washington Post, believes “Lloyd Austin is right,” Russia must be weakened.
Rubin’s hubris and arrogance, along with that of her fellow conspirators, both in and out of the state, will result in turning this loathsome warmongering woman, and practically every other American, into radioactive dust.
Thank you for insights not readily available elsewhere.
I tried to cross post one of your pieces a few days back but it was roadblocked, you must be over and on target to raise such ire
His face is exquisitely punchable.
