The Ship is Sinking


Sweden has started to control its border with Denmark and the Danes, apparently worried about the prospect of refugees getting stuck in Denmark enroute to Sweden, have decided to effectively suspend Shenegen and launch checks on the German border. On the train from Vienna we all had to get off in Salzburg and go through a checkpoint before boarding onto another train. Now, the ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways) are only making a small loss, but this no doubt, at least adds to that.

The inconvenience wasn’t too great though and I suspect that the Danes will wave Swedes who work in Denmark, and the Germans will wave Danes who work in Germany, etc. etc., through the border in a similar manner to that experienced by the passengers on the express train from Vienna to Munich today. Still, we have more signs of the war on terror reaching Europe, athough with the attacks in Paris and the floods of refugees already reaching the EU the signs have long since been there.

Therefore, it might be worthwhile for us to get some inclination of what this war is about and for that a little look at the embedded video is worthwhile. In it retired U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, is interviewed by Abby Martin. Expect a refreshing honesty on what is really driving the establishment and the corporate interests behind American foreign policy and, while the Marxists among us at least know capitalism has to get its 3% compound growth by hook or by crook, it does appear that we are all pretty fucked, even if the white faces are, at the time of my writing this, being only minimally inconvenienced.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.

One thought on “The Ship is Sinking

  1. Intelligent and articulate chap, that US Army Colonel (retd.). Is it churlish to wonder why it took him so many years before he spoke out? Concisely-written blog entry, very interesting.
