Germany seemed thrilled with the Nordstream gasline which the USA scuppered, and Germany held out the longest against anti-Russia moves. Now, Germany is gung-ho for NATO and worried about a Trump return. What changed Germany?
Former President Donald Trump on Saturday said he would encourage Russia to do “whatever the hell they want” to any NATO member country that doesn’t meet spending guidelines on defense in a stunning admission he would not abide by the collective-defense clause at the heart of the alliance if reelected.

Not so long ago predicted a war between Russia and Turkey (which would have involved NATO). There isn’t going to be a Third Great War.
Start digging that fall-out shelter.
The conspiracionists do not know the real causes of wars, they think that wars are started by an individual instead of the rivalry among the capitalists for territories, raw materials, resources, routes and sphere of influences. Capitalists have more consciousness than the working class and they are not foolish to kill all of them with one atomic bomb. When all diplomatic resources among them are exhausted they start a war and wars are not inevitable either. Iran is telling to its own rebel to avoid a world conflict because they know about the consequences and they do not have the resources to carry a long war, and the USA wants to eliminate their influences in the Middle East
At the present time the USA capitalist class is more interested in the Middle East crisis than Ukraine because there are several global interests involved in that conflict, and they got what they wanted in Ukraine, and Russia will keep a small portion of Ukraine, even more, Russia is already willing to negotiate a peace agreement and the USA will keep the larger portion of Ukraine under its influence
Russia was not going to launch the invasion, the USA forced them to do that, and that is what they wanted, and they wanted to kill two birds with one shot which was to stop the Russian expansion and to kill the Chinese Silk Road. They did the same thing that they did in Kwait. Some left communists groups agree on that too. The USA did not accept any type of diplomatic negotiations, and when all diplomatic negotiation within the capitalists are exhausted the last resource is war. Russia is not prepare to carry a war against the USA and NATO and they knew that the USA was going to impose sanction on them, they did it when the Soviet Union was more powerful than Russia
I wouldn’t have thought that that was ever the aim of the Russian ruling class. They would have only wanted to overthrow the government there and replace it by one not so tied to the US, the EU and NATO. To install such a government would be why they tried to march on Kiev. When that failed they concentrated on controlling the majority Russian-speaking areas near to the Russian border.
It’s Ukraine that would have a rebellious population to control if ever they conquered these areas, especially Crimea (and unless they ethnically cleansed them). But this is hardly likely to happen even with NATO weapons.
The most likely outcome would seem to be some sort of truce or ceasefire, formal or informal, more or less along the present line of contact. The sooner the better of course.
That is the correct analysis. I do not think that we made a wrong analysis at the beginning of the conflict, the USA pushed russia to invade Ukraine as they did in Kuwait
Another Putin opponent has died. They are competing with Joseph Stalin
Probably, the real killer was the USA ruling class. With Russia the USA used the same tactic as the used in Kuwait, they let Hussein to invade it and they let Putin to invade Ukraine, they stopped the expansion of Russia and they destroy the Eurasian railway and the Russian gas pipelines
Many leftists groups do not understand that the interests of the capitalist class are more important than the interest of the working class. Capitalism is an economical society created for the capitalists, and their main purposes in every war is to natural resources, territory, sphere of influences and routes. Probably at the present time the situation in the Middle East is more important for the US than the crisis in Ukraine. Ronald Reagan was blocked by the congress to get funding for the war in the Central America but they found way to finance that war but indirectly they were fighting against the Soviet Union who also had influences in that region
Putin’s War Has Killed China’s Eurasian Railway Dreams
The iron silk road was a key part of the Belt and Road Initiative.
The passage that “war is capitalism’s gold standard to clear the way for growth” seems to be a left-over from their time in the ICC, though other Left Communist Groups invoke it too. It’s just not true a destructive war has been and is needed to maintain capitalist growth.
Most Left Communist Groups kept the same conception, they inherited that idea from Vladimir Lenin. They have just rejected some Leninists conceptions but they are still Leninists and pro Bolsheviks, they have not rejected the whole bodies of ideas of Leninism and the Bolsheviks . The same case of CLR James and others who rejected the Vanguard party but they never rejected Leninism completely .

Freedom of speech and human rights is only a legal fallacy created by the capitalists in order to pacify the wage slaves
Facebook, and Twitter are a joke. Forums of discussions are for politically matured persons. Several organizations are moving their publications to Groups IO
Japan is the same case of Detroit and Chicago, there was a popular saying that said: If you see a man sleeping in the subway, he is a worker of the automotive industry, workers had to work long hours under heavy stress in the assembly line, and there was a high rate of divorce among them and families were falling apart
Many died at the assembly line due to illness, exhaustion, hypertension and heart diseases, ( if you do not come on Sunday do not come on Monday ) ironically, the so called socialist nation of the Soviet Union also adopted Ford assembly line, to produce high profits for the socialist homeland. There was not differenceFebruary 9, 2024 at 8:36 pm in reply to: “Revolutionary Communist Party” name to be revived #250420
You can put all those so called communists and socialists organizations in a blender and you will obtain the same juice, they are all based on reformism, state capitalism, and the concept of the chieftain
I do not think that millions of young peoples are looking for communism, they just want reforms, new governments controls and new leaders, that is not communism, it is the same old thing.
Lenin was never a communist
Marx was also influenced by Feuerbach, but he also moved away from vulgar materialism. I do not think he unified materialism and idealism, and he was not the most materialist of the idealist philosopher and the most idealist of the materialist philosopher either.
Marx ethnological notebooks have been placed on the side, but he was deeply involved in the study of Anthropology, Paleontology and ancient society.
The Bolivarians have indicated that he was not acquainted in the issue of Colonialism and that is the reason why he did not understand Simon Bolivar and his national liberation movement which is totally false, he had a deep knowledge about Colonialism totally different to the wrong conceptions of Vladimir Lenin
