SPAIN OUTRAGES NATO & ENGLAND, ALLOWS RUSSIAN NAVY PASSAGE THROUGH GIBRALTAR

Published on: Nov 16, 2018 @ 11:40 – The United States is slowly but surely losing control over Europe’s military and economic future. Moreover, the NATO alliance – which lost its stated, founding purpose when the USSR collapsed and the Warsaw Pact along with it – is also losing steam. Historically, the U.S financed NATO and in other ways subsidized the military potential of Western European states on the foundation of anti-communism and Trans-Atlantic cooperation – but the capacity to finance NATO was in turn based upon the domination of the European economy by New York and London based capital firms.

Thus, in the final analysis, it is not entirely accurate to say that the U.S subsidized Europe’s collective militaries, but more so that the U.S extracted capital from Europe, in turn made possible from Europe and the U.S relation to the so-called ‘third world’, and a portion of it was then put back into Europe’s ‘defense’. But more than aiding Europe’s various national armies, the U.S placed hundreds of bases and military installations throughout Western Europe, manned by American soldiers, in what critics have increasingly called an occupation. WWII ended more than 70 years ago, the Cold War ended nearly 30 years ago, yet the United States still militarily dominates Western Europe. But things are now changing, and changing quickly.

But what does the recent authorization to enter the port of Ceuta, located in front of the Strait of Gibraltar, given by the Spanish authorities to ships of the Russian Navy mean?

In the opinion of British analyst and consultant Nile Gardiner, Spain stuck a knife in the back of the NATO when allowing the passage through Ceuta of three ships of the Russian Navy: a cruiser antimissile, a tugboat and an oil tanker. His colleague and compatriot Luke Coffey, for his part, described Madrid’s performance as “extreme irresponsibility”.

The rhetoric of the British contrasts sharply with that of Spain. “The Russian fleet returns to Ceuta three years later,” wrote the newspaper El Pais, in a very neutral tone, noting that the passage comes “only three days after” the visit of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to the Spanish capital.

In fact, the edition, although its editorial line is always very hard on the Kremlin, makes it clear that the absence of Russian ships in Ceuta since 2016, as a result of pressure from the Atlantic Alliance, represented significant losses for the Iberian country. The question is that between 2010 and 2016 this North African city of Spain received sixty scales of Russian military ships, involving more than 10,000 crew members who left in the place some 4.5 million euros, according to with the data of the Port Authority of Ceuta.

The local press also does not even try to stifle their joy at the news, ensuring that the arrival of this type of ships usually brings even more benefits than cruise ships “with thousands of passengers on board.”

The president of the Spanish Diplomatic Academy, Santiago Velo de Antelo, said that the return of the Russian navy to Ceuta is a return “to normalcy that broke in 2016.”

Commenting on the reason for British anger, Antelo, who is also director of the magazine Diplomacy Twenty-first Century, did not rule out that it has to do with London’s desire to have total control of the Strait of Gibraltar, possibly “the most important strait in the world.”

The Spanish economist and lawyer Guillermo Rocafort, in turn, was convinced that “the British are very outraged as they are accustomed to treating Spain as a vassal nation.”

“They are worried that Spain will adopt a neutral or even friendly stance towards a country as important as Russia,” he said.

He spoke at the same time of the “hypocrisy” of the United Kingdom, which “usurped” the Rock of Gibraltar from Spain and did not even consult anyone in repairing “broken nuclear submarines” there.

“Spain is sending an unequivocal message not only to the UK and the US, but to the whole world in general, that it is a sovereign nation and only makes the decisions that suit its interests,” he said.

In summary, he also noted that in Spain the voices are growing, among them of such “relevant” people as Colonel Pedro Baños, who want good ties with Russia and defend the “consolidation of friendship” between the two countries in the economic, humanitarian or military areas, rather than “being involved in a confrontation for the imposition of foreign nations.”

Secretary General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg has expressed what can only be termed confusion and outrage at the Spanish move to break ranks with NATO.  

Spain has accomplished three important things, with one move: they have asserted that Gibraltar is theirs, and not England’s. They have asserted that they have a military policy independent of NATO, which is huge. And third, they have shown that they want good relations with Russia, and will not be party to any increase in military tensions which places Spain at odds with Russia in the name of Trans-Atlantic interests, chiefly American.

The Straits of Gibraltar are an international waterway, and Spain has no authority over them. The Russian navy can pass through it any time at pleasure. Stopping them would be an overt act of war.

The same goes for the artic zone, where the national Gov are crawling infront of the AmeriCunts on every god dammed ocation, regarding anything that can benefit the people in the Northen NorDick countrys and thereby Russia, no way, nothing is alowed to be, the trail way prodject, minings, etc, train conetions to the Russian rail way system is just some few klicks away from Norway where they have deep water harbors and hevy ind and capasity.
The train line is suposedly going from Rovaniemi to Kirkenes, where as it passes, several possible junctions where one could hock up with the Russians.
But Nope.
Yeah, NATO, jens suckerberg, the rat is just that, an rat, an polished whore whom do what He is told, from the scums from the Imperial banana republic UssA.
The present collection of spit likers is even worse, jesus they are creepy and rotten, you cant find any more rotten stupid people on this planet than up here where PC-ism have ravaged the lands.

The truth is, Spain is doing the right thing, the problem, isnt Russia, its the Brits and the UssA, and we all know it, the Brits, yeah, I think you know the rest.
The only stain is jailing Catalans, tsk, tsk, tsk, Madrid, stupid move.
Uncostitutional, iligale, and just an new way of humiliating the Catalans/Basque people, its an sad day for Spain, that this display of force is been done as we speak.

They, the Catalans/Basque have my hart and soul, since we are from the same source/people.

peace

Your dead right with most things you point out. The amazing thing is, IF the NORDIC countries removed the splinter from their eyes, and were able to recognize the economical benefits to them all, by connecting to the Russian rail system. Instead, they wish to demonize Russia and stagnate their own economies, by adhering to dictates from abroad, who do not have their best interests at heart. Such politicians need to be strung up at the nearest lamp post as the traitors they are to their own countries.

If Jens Stoltenberg is confused and outraged it can only mean Spain is on the right track. Decent relations with countries is the way to go not chest thumping exceptionalism. May NATO head to the grave soon and US forces piss off out of Europe and Asia.

If only more countries made decisions based on their sovereignty rather than to appease the warmongering zionists. Definitely a good start for Spain.
