Simultaneous US aggression in Black Sea and Mediterranean as multipolarity accelerates

By Drago Bosnic | April 3, 2023

Following the recent engagements between illegal American occupation forces in northeastern Syria and what the Pentagon called “pro-Iranian forces”, leaving dead and wounded on both sides, the United States has decided to further escalate tensions in Syria and the Middle East as a whole. As the multipolar, or should we say the actual world, is engaging in real and masterful diplomacy (in stark contrast to the US), reconciling archrivals such as Iran and Saudi Arabia and slowly but surely normalizing relations between Syria and Turkey, the stabilization of the globe seems like an unstoppable process. This is deeply alarming to the political West, the only entity on the planet in constant need of widespread death, destruction and chaos so it can maintain the illusion of the “garden-jungle” geopolitical framework.

Using the recent clashes as an excuse, Washington DC announced an extension of the CSG (carrier strike group) deployment led by USS “George H.W. Bush” Nimitz-class supercarrier, over 9.000 km away from its home port of Norfolk in Virginia. On Friday, US CENTCOM (Central Command) spokesman Colonel Joe Buccino stated that the extension of the “George H.W. Bush” CSG, inclusive of the “USS Leyte Gulf”, the “USS Delbert D. Black” and the “USNS Arctic” allows options to “potentially bolster the capabilities of CENTCOM to respond to a range of contingencies in the Middle East”. At the time of the announcement, the CSG was near Sicily. Apparently, the deployment will also include “a scheduled, expedited deployment of a squadron of A-10 attack aircraft to the region.”

According to Reuters, at least one US official, “speaking on the condition of anonymity”, confirmed that the George H.W. Bush CSG was “expected to remain in the European Command area of responsibility”, most likely until further notice, meaning that the US wants to keep tensions as high as possible for as long as possible. For the mainstream propaganda machine, the conflict in Syria is still called the “Syrian Civil War”, although it is anything but. Washington DC and its numerous satellite states in the region have been attacking the unfortunate country for over a decade now, resulting in hundreds of thousands of dead and millions of refugees. In addition, the US maintains an illegal occupation of northeastern Syria, where it’s supposedly “guarding” (i.e. stealing) the country’s oil reserves.

However, US militancy in Syria (and the wider Middle East) is only a fraction of the belligerent thalassocracy’s aggression against the world. Concurrently, Washington DC and its numerous NATO satellite states also conducted naval drills off the coast of Romania’s Tulcea County on the country’s Black Sea coast. The region borders the Odessa Oblast (an area currently occupied by the Kiev regime). Apparently, the war games included a scenario where thousands of NATO soldiers simulated coastal defense against a large-scale attack by an “unnamed aggressor” (obviously referring to Russia). Dubbed “Sea Shield 23”, the naval drills started on March 20 and were concluded on Sunday, April 2.

In total, close to 3,500 servicemen from the US and eleven other NATO vassals took part, including at least 30 naval ships, 14 aircraft and 15 other “fast intervention” boats. The live-fire drills were conducted both in the Black Sea and the Danube Delta, approximately 30 km from the border with Odessa Oblast. Since Russia started the special military operation (SMO), the US has conducted a number of large-scale military exercises in Eastern Europe to simulate a potential conflict with Moscow. This includes a recent simulated nuclear attack on Saint Petersburg, Russia’s second-largest city with close to six million inhabitants. A USAF B-52H “Stratofortress” flying in Estonian airspace circled in an area barely 100 km from the Russian border.

To put that into perspective, we should imagine a Russian Tu-95MS “Bear” strategic bomber/missile carrier flying just 60 miles off Manhattan, simulating a thermonuclear strike on New York City, one of the most important urban areas in the US. Still, that doesn’t prevent the US from doing everything in its power to provoke Russia. Considering that the “deep diving pro-Ukrainian group” that conducted the Nord Stream terrorist attacks has now also been dangerously close to the Turk (formerly South) Stream pipelines, the Russian Black Sea Fleet will need to be as vigilant as ever. The pipeline is the only major energy hub supplying natural gas to Turkey and Southeast Europe.

In the meantime, the world is working towards creating conditions for peaceful coexistence and cooperation of the globe’s numerous civilizations. Organizations such as BRICS and SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) are rapidly expanding by admitting new members, with Iran being the most recent constituent of SCO. Saudi Arabia also became a dialogue partner on March 29, marking an important milestone in the organization’s history, which now includes all major oil producers in Eurasia and the Middle East. This also marks a crucial step toward eliminating Western currency dominance, the key provision to limiting the belligerent power pole’s ability to conduct military and economic aggression against the world.

  1. Great commentary by the always-onpoint DB; appreciated!

    Just who in hell drives all this sh*t in our government (sick) and its continual misadventures abroad? Is it the (mostly Zionist) neocons still spreading their poison and lusting for full-spectrum global domination (for the benefit, not of the US but of the settler-colonial ideology Zionism and its platform Israel)? We the people really need to out the bas*ards and clean house of those effers, now and forever, putting paid to this sh*t that, as is my constant refrain, bleeds back to the domestic front and has led to a totally dysfunctional society (sic[k])….

  2. The Biden administration, Pentagon, and compatriots in London (The Overlords) have decided to flex the conventional muscle they have in the face of defeat in Ukraine. China has outmaneuvered the US to produce varying degrees of alliances between former foes. West actions have only strengthened Russia’s relationship with China and nations of the global south. It is a beautiful quilt that is being pieced together by Xi Jinping. Not since Lyndon LaRouche have there been great Statesmen as Xi And Vladimir Putin. Lyndon LaRouche’s wife, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, is carrying the torch she and her husband carried for many decades together to light the way for undeveloped nations. It was LaRouche’s IDB concept in 1975, that the Non-Aligned Movement endorsed, to create international development banks for lending credit directly to developing nations. State-to-state trade with credit terms of long duration at low rates, is now the hallmark of the Belt and Road Initiative/New Silk Road. This has completely bypassed the IMF/World Bank debt trap that broadened in 1971 after the New Bretton Woods agreement was canceled and the dollar floated. Helga Zepp-LaRouche has put forward 10 principles for achieving true independence for every nation based on respect for others’ sovereignty, equal representation in the great halls of international relations. The right to self-development and self-determination, access to advanced technologies, education, and healthcare, and the freedom to achieve economic prosperity for each of its citizens. Zepp-LaRouche’s 10 principles are inviolable and necessary to vouchsafe peace on earth and goodwill toward mankind. Zepp-LaRouche has laid down the foundation for a new and exciting international architecture of security and economic guarantees for all nations. They can be found at Schiller Institute website. Please plan to attend the Schiller Institute conference online, April 15, beginning 9 am. You can register to attend the conference on the Schiller Institute website.

    • I’m entranced/enthralled by your comment; thanks! My (naive?) wonder: can’t Ms. Zepp-Larouche link with two young Americans who have grabbed me the last couple of years — Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang — and fashion a coalition-cum-viable third party to join in re-establishing some sanity and a way forward in this suppurating world?

      (I like in particular “It is a beautiful quilt that is being pieced together by Xi Jinping.”! Full agreement! Memo: I hope his personal security, and that of vital parts of his country and infrastructure, is tight and unassailable….)

      • Thank you for your comments. Yes, our nation has been undone by the two Party-uni-Party system. But I think the time has come to padlock the door to the Country Club. The selfish fools in Congress save a handful, are not worthy of a second look. It is time for the two-party system to find its place in the dustbin of history. What will replace it needs some pondering but I’m almost certain it will happen in our lifetime.
        Lt Colonel Tulsi Gabbard would make a wonderful President. I’m not too sure about Yang’s vision. His ideas are not well grounded.
