It’s getting harder and harder for the U.S. to get the rest of the world (except the U.S.’s poodles) to do what it wants. From Matthew Ehret at strategic-culture.org:
It is 2022 and regime change formulas don’t work, color revolutionary magic which worked for decades doesn’t work and even expanding old-school military hardware around the troublesome Eurasian nations of the multipolar alliance no longer works.
The old magic doesn’t work the way it used to for the ghouls in Washington, London and Brussels.
It used to be so easy to wave that old wand and watch a troublesome president have his brains blown out on live TV or suffer a violent coup.
There were a thousand and one ways to eliminate a pesky nationalist politician which had been honed over the Cold War years, and it seemed that all 1001 had been tried… several times over in some cases.
If two towers were required to collapse into rubble or a nationally elected government (or twelve) overthrown by a conveniently weaponized mob, then a shadow government apparatus would get the job done without too much ado or resistance of merit.
The beat went on and on like a broken record until some time in 2013… when something changed.
That change took the form of a couple of nations that realized that without a new set of rules and a new song to dance to, this dark magic was going to lead the world into an inevitable dark age. While some within those nations were more than content adapting to that sulfur as long as they were promised good seats ruling in hell, others with a bit more moral fibre said no to that option.
