The West wants Russia to declare war; it would still any debate in the west about looking for a diplomatic compromise.It would play directly into western hands at this particular time. It would solidify the position of the hard liners, the Ursula von der leyen’s, ( Harbeck has just seized Russian oil refineries in Germany). They want a Russian declaration of war, that entrenches them, it makes their position politically stronger, then they could say we are not dealing with a country that is amenable, but one that is declaring a war of aggression against its neighbours. They would get the political win, the centralisation of power win, but they don’t mind if they lose the economy. They don’t care about the people; the elite will be fine. The people will become poor overnight. We can deal with that, we lock them up, we can censor them. This would be a win for them.
Not a popular policy in Germany but one which they are following. They are going to intensify repression even further. Just three people have taken Germany off the cliff, with the foot on the accelerator.
Patrick Henningsen in his most recent Sunday Wire radio broadcast pointed out that Germany is not independent, it has been a vassal state of the US ever since the end of WWII.
