In Hitler's Steps: Huge US Military Convoy to Advance From Germany to Russia's Border

US troops retrace the path of Hitler's invading armies that would lay siege to Leningrad

Remember "Dragoon Ride" of 2015? It was a company of US stryker vehicles returning from an Estonia independence day parade (which was inexplicitly held not in the nation's capital but 300 metres from the Russian border) not by rail or ship as is usual but across Europe's highways.
Well say hello to 2016. This time it's an entire regiment of 1,200 American troops with 400 vehicles which has hit the road -- and in the opposite direction. Yupp that's right. A Regiment of US troops has driven out from their Germany bases en route to Estonia and the neighborhood of Russia old imperial capital of Sankt Petersburg (once Leningrad) in the Baltics -- ie they are retracing the steps taken by the Third Reich's Army Group North taken during the invasion of the Soviet Union. Once there they will join a 14,000 strong multinational NATO military exercise.

What a remarkable lack of self-consciousness. Germany, Poland and the western media scoff every year when Russian bikers perform their annual ride from Moscow to Berlin. Yet those are private Russian citizens and furthermore unarmed. These are soldiers en route for war drills on Russia's border.
Russia is famously and understandably hyper-sensitive about anything WWII in which it lost 25 million people, most of them civilians a to genocidal policies of the western occupier. US knows this but still pulls up stunts like this. Is US military really this oblivious to the paralels here or is somebody at the Pentagon going out of their way to provoke the Russians and cook up a budget-enhancing crisis?

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te de√ęscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
