There are only a few scanty pieces of information what Merkel and Hollande have actually discussed with Putin in Moscow. As Mercouris points out in his analysis, the two European leaders preferred to be alone with Putin without any of their advisers as they can no longer trust anybody because the big CIA brother is watching all of them and Kremlin is the only place in the world where they cannot be eavesdropped.
On the eve of the planned ‘Normandy Four’ meeting that may be held in the Belarus capital of Minsk as early as Wednesday, with President Putin, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, there are already warnings from both sides that should this effort fail, “total war” remains the only option for Russia to resolve the Ukraine crisis.
It seems that during his 5-hour meeting Friday with Merkel and Hollande, Putin privately warned his European counterparts that he would not allow the Obama regime to arm the fascist Ukrainian regime. Should the US attempt to do so in spite of this warning, “total war” within a few weeks would be the result. This has been already discussed as a likely outcome on this website (and here).
During a visit to Sochi on the Black Sea yesterday, Putin further publicly warned the Obama regime against their reckless actions by stating:
“There is an attempt to perturb the existing world order… with one incontestable leader [Obama] who wants to remain as such thinking he is allowed everything while others are only allowed what he allows and only in his interests. This world order will never suit Russia.”
Putin’s obviously firm warning of “total war”, was heeded by Merkel who warned her Western counterparts yesterday at the Munich security conference not to try to scare Russia’s leader:
“I cannot imagine any situation in which improved equipment for the Ukrainian army leads to President Putin being so impressed that he believes he will lose militarily,” she said. “I have to put it that bluntly.”
Hollande flanked Merkel’s grim assessment of Putin’s fierce determination to resolve the Ukrainian civil war, if necessary, by means of a total war against the rogue Nazi Kiev junta, by stating the same day:
“If we don’t find not just a compromise but a lasting peace agreement, we know perfectly well what the scenario will be. It has a name, it’s called war.”
By this he means of course “total war” as the war is already raging in full force in Eastern Ukraine.
This gloomy perspective has been reinforced today by an unusually frank report in the leading German conservative daily neswpaper FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), which quotes German intelligence documents that were allegedly already provided by Merkel to Putin at the Friday’s meeting. These sources estimate the true total of deaths in this conflict at 50,000, ten times the officially announced figure which has repeatedly been cited in the MSM. As if Putin did not know these numbers better than anybody else – this is a deliberate indiscretion on the part of the German government to reinforce the weak position of Merkel in front of Obama, whom she will meet on Monday and will have to answer tough questions to her dark masters in Washington.
As predicted by myself and other experts the panicking Merkel-Hollande’s peace initiative on Friday in Moscow “is the last chance to avoid all-out war” as Daily Mails also tacitly acknowledges today. While the war intensifies on all fronts in Eastern Ukraine, the Obama regime is intending to make this civil war even worse as US Vice President Joe Biden claimed yesterday at the Munich conference: by fraudulently accusing Putin and Russia again:
” Russia’s President Vladimir Putin had repeatedly vowed to work for peace but instead had delivered “tanks, troops and weapons” to the conflict (big lie). ..He should be judged by its deeds, rather than its words.”
If the use of deadly US weapons in the killing of ethnic Russians will continue or intensify by new supplies of lethal weapons, the Kremlin will have to decide to start a large-scale military offensive from the east which would involve “taking Kiev”. This may lead to a full scale nuclear confrontation as discussed by the renowned US journalist Robert Parry in his latest article:
“The U.S. government and mainstream media are swaggering toward a possible nuclear confrontation with Russia over Ukraine without any of the seriousness that has informed this sort of decision-making throughout the nuclear age. Instead, Official Washington seems possessed by a self-righteous goofiness that could be the prelude to the end of life on this planet.”
The declaration of “total war” in an attempt to stop the Ukrainian conflict, is founded in the new defence doctrine of Russia and the recent change in diplomatic vocabulary as confirmed by Putin himself:
“The Ukrainian army is essentially a ‘NATO legion’ which doesn’t pursue the national interests of Ukraine, but persists to restrict Russia. We often say: Ukrainian Army, Ukrainian Army. But who is really fighting there? There are, indeed, partially official units of armed forces, but largely there are the so-called ‘volunteer nationalist battalions’,
Along with ethnic Russians being under attack by Obama’s proxy forces of the Kiev Nazi junta, this conflict also involves Russian citizens who have poured across the border by the thousands into this war to protect their families and relatives. This fact provides the “casus belli” for Kremlin to start an all out-war in accordance with their new military doctrine, which clearly defines the USA and NATO as their chief enemies.
In the meantime, while Poroshenko was applauded at the Munich conference by all EU war-mongerers amidst caviar and vodka, as the German Press reported, he has de facto lost control of the military situation in eastern Ukraine. At the same time his nation’s currency has collapsed and his government has gone broke. While his fourth mobilisation of new soldiers has fully failed, nearly 100,000 rebel forces are now being recruited for what in all terms would be the final battle that would nearly totally destroy what is left of the Ukrainian army.
According to military experts, Ukraine currently has only around 41,000 regular combat troops plus perhaps 20,000 Ukrainian irregulars, who joined volunteer battalions to fight against these nearly 100,000 rebel forces, and has lost 220 tanks, or a quarter of its total, and more than 480 armored vehicles through August of last year through combat, breakdown or capture by the rebel forces. Now the rest of the Ukrainian army of 7,000 – 10,000 troops is fully enclosed by the insurgents in the cauldron of Debaltsevo and it is a matter of a few days when this rest army will be fully destroyed, unless they decide to surrender before that. This was the chief reason why Merkel and Hollande made their Canossa pilgrimage to Moscow to beg Putin save the rogue Nazi junta and West Europa from this humiliating defeat.
In order to fully comprehend the atrocities of Obama and Orion Co. against the Ukrainian and Russia people, one should know that by the beginning of this civil war in March 2014, Ukraine had just 6,000 troops ready for combat and only a sixth of its aircraft and anti-aircraft systems were functional and only four of the Ukrainian navy’s vessels were combat-ready prior to the conflict. And to make matters worse for them, at least 16,000 former Ukrainian military personnel in Crimea defected to the Russian armed forces when Russia annexed the territory in March.
The rest of Ukraine’s troops and equipment were not ready for combat. In order to keep their forces fighting, Kiev established what are called “barrier squads” and sent them to the front lines to fire on any of their soldiers who attempted to retreat, as once Hitler did in his insane war against the Soviet Union during WW2
With US Special Forces troops already filmed being a part of this conflict, and US General. Ben Hodges, Commander of the US Army in Europe, handing out medals to wounded Ukrainian soldiers, Russia is already in a de facto war with the Obama regime and NATO. This explain the Doomsday mood of the western military cabal in Munich and the callous acceptance of their enemy, Lavrov of Russia, who is now winning the war hands down.
Above all latest diplomatic activities there hangs the sword of Damocles of Putin’s “Shock of March” battle plan that will transform the current bloody Ukrainian war into a nightmare for Europe and humanity.
