EU and ‘our’ €, ‘unity in diversity’, without polish no shine


Too many Chiefs, not enough “enhanced and resilient” Indians

The present policy-driven, or in other words, a rather forced integration of Europe is the work of fools. Just name one example of an imposed, forced community that has survived history. There is not, for they all came down. How often do politicians really have to make the same mistakes before finally drawing a lesson from it?

In order to develop from small tribal communities into to large modern state structures, humanity needed tens of thousands of years and it took a long time for just a few steps ahead. The latter nowadays still happening in many states. A process wich even Europe has not left behind itself.

But even in modern states, those who want a collaborative push for some sort of, mainly economical, ‘enhanced and resilient’ federalization of a part of Europe by means of political force, are in the end achieving nothing but a lot of damage. Because where law, reason and citizens will be completely replaced by an ideology, flanked by rhetorics, failure is almost inevitable. The recent fuss about Cameron’s speech is only an indicative tip of the iceberg. As is ‘2013 – Year of the European Citizen’.

Nevertheless, people can survive. And shine also. Not only because they can  overcome the euro crises, the financial crisis, the political crisis, the banking crisis, the debt crisis, the housing crisis, they could and can overcome warfare, a looming inflation crisis, the climate crisis, the energy crisis, an upcoming food crisis, an unemployment crisis, a possible wide spread social welfare crisis. And so on. All of which is hitting citizens in their normal daily life’s.

No, at the end it is not about this at all.

At the end it is all about the strong feeling of -and trust by citizens that they can overcome gloomy suspicions not to survive at all in the future. Shining again, without respect for what sort of ideological polish is forced upon them by too many shining Chiefs convening in Brussel, Strassbourg, Frankfurt and Luxembourg.

Dressing up Europe

Hollande, Ashton, Mali, EU and deceptive rhetorics.

 Is uranium a country?

Except from straightforward lying to hide the truth, is soliciting support and selling warfare under false pretentions happening again right under your nose and eyes. No lessons learned from WW I, WW II, Korea, Indonesia, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, irrespectective of the camp where the good and the bad fortify themselves behind all sorts of ideo barriers. Any sort of logic often lost in the quagmire of clashing interests and political intrigues.

Now in Africa. Jihadism in Mali. Natural resources in surrounding countries the real subject of concern. Uranium in particular. 

“The threat of jihadi terrorists (in Mali, KB) is something that should be a matter of great concern to all of us,” said Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans in this article. He is right, but it’s only a minor part of the truth.

Caroline Ashton’s press statement on Mali:

“It is about humanitarian support in these times of crisis; it’s about ensuring development aid; it’s about the security of people across the Sahel and in this case all the people of Mali; it’s about dealing with this challenge from the terrorists; and it’s about building the economy because we know very well how all of this needs to fit together into a comprehensive strategy to enable this part of the world to move forward. We are very committed to continuing that”.

Where it really is all about, is the primary concern about economic threats to an energy intensive, but fossiles’ poor, industrialized part of Western Europe, also called the EU, in the midst of a political creditability crisis, a financial crisis, an euro crisis and a debtcrisis. The real motives already signalled in 2010:

And if one thinks the French Republic will sit on the sidelines while freedom-loving people are in danger of losing freedom, think again.”

And once one sees through the transparently deceptive rhetoric, it is quite clear that instability is the enemy not because it threatens the inalienable rights of Nigeriens, but because it threatens the economic interests of the French.”

Hence, at stake are the economic interests of a so-called European Union -not ‘the’ European Union by the way, because of imminent threats to the regular supply of uranium to fuel 58 nuclear plants in France.

Nuclear fuel, providing for 75 percent of French energy demand with considerable energy exports to EU-member states. Nuclear fuel for nuclear energy plants, for which no cost effective replacement alternatives are at hand in an unforeseeable, uncertain future.


EU: ‘Development aid, providing security and training missions as a comprehensive strategy’.  As the USA does under the Trans Saharan Counterterrorism Initiative, directly reporting to the US Secretary of Defense, who is directly reporting to the Chief Commander of the USA. TSCI, headquartered under AFRICOM in Stuttgart, Germany.  Nevertheless, contrary to the logic about Afghanistan, Mali seems not to be a NATO issue. Unfortunately, if you may believe other politicians as well, it is not about Mali only.  Jihadism and sensitive fossile resources reach far beyond the borders of Mali and the Sahel. Or is uranium a borderless country of its own?

The Treaty on European Union:

‘By this Treaty (on European Union, Lisbon, December 13, 2007), the High Contracting Parties establish among themselves a European Union, hereinafter called ‘the Union’. Backed up by a treaty how this all is supposed to function.

 Were it not bloody serious, a hilarious, deceptive hoax: Niger uranium forgeries. Iraq, Niger, Italy, Washington, the UK, UN.

And paraphrasing Paul Krugman: ‘If you put the EU and Washington in charge of the Sahara desert, within five years no corn of sand will be left.’

Or no corn of sand will be left not turned over. Much to the disgust of some people, who had and have no say in decisions about this. Decisions, which are taken thousands of stepmiles away from their homesteads:
