Global Warming Poster Child Greta Thunberg Makes Common Cause With the U.S State Department in Its Efforts to Destabilize Russia

Politics often breeds strange bedfellows.

International political observers have been fixated on a Moscow court’s decision to sentence Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny to roughly three-and-a-half years in prison on February 2, 2021 for violating the terms of his parole.

The Russian government was quick to attack foreign input on a matter of Russian domestic policy. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a Moscow news outlet RBK that foreign states should not “meddle in the internal affairs of a sovereign state. And we recommend that everyone deals with their own problems.” 

She added, “Believe me, there are enough of their own problems in these countries, there are plenty of issues to deal with.”

Navalny’s sentencing was criticized by a number of Western leaders. U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken declared he was “deeply concerned” by the imprisonment of Navalny.  He said that the U.S. government would be working with its allies to “hold Russia accountable for failing to uphold the rights of its citizens.”

Teenage environmentalist activist Greta Thunberg even jumped in on the Navalny mania. She tweeted on February 2, “So in the year 2021 Europe chooses to meet its energy demand by building a pipeline to transport more fossil fuels from the ones responsible for this. Shameful on so many levels. #FreeNavalny

Before his return to Russia, Navalny was undergoing treatment for an alleged poisoning in Germany in 2020. The timing of Navalny’s return to Russia and the protests that kicked off following his return —which coincided with Germany’s decision to maintain the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project —has many wondering if there is something bigger at play. 

The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline facilitates the flow of Russian gas into Germany without having to go through Ukraine. Given the geoeconomic implications of such a project, U.S. officials have responded in a heavy-handed manner by sanctioning the project. French government officials have also called on Germany to scrap the project in light of Navalny’s prison sentence. 

A number of commentators such as the geopolitical risk consultant Niccolo Soldo have pointed out that American liquefied natural gas is considerably more expensive, while Russian LNG is cheaper for Germans. Naturally, American LNG companies stand to benefit from derailing Nord Stream 2, which is why they’re pushing for the U.S. government to continue taking punitive action against the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. 

Thunberg’s praise of Navalny is indicative of an intriguing dynamic taking place in real time, wherein neoliberal/neoconservative hawks are making strange bedfellows with environmentalists abroad. This especially holds true with German Green Party’s opposition to Nord Stream 2, where they have effectively formed an anti-pipeline coalition with Atlanticists who are fearful of an ascendant Russia. 

BLP previously reported on the Russian government’s concerns with Big Tech’s excessive censorship of political discourse. Strangely, Russia has emerged as a force to balance the rise of America’s woke state which seeks to export its values abroad, consequences be damned. 

We can only expect tensions between the American and Russian government to escalate in the next four years given the U.S.’s fanatic foreign policy.

Biden Authorizes Attack on Syria, Kamala FURIOUS It Wasn’t Her Call

Will Biden do a regime change in Syria?

AMERICA IS BACK BABY!

You didn’t seriously think that after four years of peace in the Middle East, things were gonna stay that way, did you Jack? Well of course not! On Thursday afternoon, the Pentagon confirmed that the United States military had carried out airstrikes in Syria against facilities used by Iranian-backed militias. These groups have been operating in Syria for some time in their fight against the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda.

Pentagon Press Secretary Kirby gave the following statement:

“At President Biden’s direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and Coalition personnel in Iraq, and to ongoing threats to those personnel. Specifically, the strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control point used by a number of Iranian-backed militant groups, including Kait’ib Hezbollah (KH) and Kait’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS).

This proportionate military response was conducted together with diplomatic measures, including consultation with Coalition partners. The operation sends an unambiguous message: President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq.”

According to conservative commentator Jack Posobiec, Vice President Harris was not included in the discussions about the bombing and is very upset that she wasn’t.

Many Twitter users are also pointing out the fact that Biden had fully condemned unannounced military action in the Middle East when it was Trump doing it.

According to the New York Post, the airstrikes were in response to recent attacks against US forces in Iraq. The militia groups targeted have denied any involvement in the attacks and there has been no confirmation as to whether or not they were involved. The New York Post wrote:

The Pentagon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It was not immediately clear if there were any deaths or injuries caused by the US strike, or the extent of damage it may have caused.

On Feb. 15, a rocket attack against a US military base at Erbil International Airport in Northern Iraq killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.

Two days later, a base hosting US forces north of Baghdad was targeted in another rocket attack, wounding at least one contractor.

On Monday rockets hit Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses the US embassy and other diplomatic missions.

Earlier this week, the Kataib Hezbollah group, one of the main Iran-aligned Iraqi militia groups, denied any role in recent rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq.

Some Western and Iraqi officials say the attacks, often claimed by little-known groups, are being carried out by militants with links to Kataib Hezbollah as a way for Iranian allies to harass US forces without being held accountable.

Fox New’s Tucker Carlson, who seems to be the only host on any cable news network that has been unquestionably anti-war for the past four years, gave a monologue Thursday night about his take on the attacks:
