Few Americans realize how much the American government is loathed throughout the world. From The Saker at saker.is:
How NATO “celebrated” the Orthodox Nativity
NATO did “celebrate” the Orthodox Nativity, but in its own way. First, a few headlines:
Remember the truce offered by Russia? It was rejected. Instead we got this:
- Donetsk shelled in first minute of Christmas truce – authorities
- Two Serbs shot in Kosovo Christmas Eve attack
And, just to clarify, NATO uses Serbia as a defenseless victim to show Russia what it can do to its allies, the message being, as Stoble Talbott said, “after Serbia, you are next”, so the link here is strong.
NATO did not stop at that, it also continued its policy of persecutions, see these headlines:
- Zelensky sanctions over 100 Russian public figures
- Zelensky deprives Orthodox priests of citizenship – media.
Speaking of issues of freedom of religion, NATO is planning to completely ban the parishes which used to have an autonomous status under the Moscow Patriarchate, which then turned against Moscow and condemned the SMO. But that was not enough, so, just like in NATO occupied Kosovo, the persecution of Orthodox clergy and faithful is both a “feel good” operation for Orthodoxy-haters and a “message” to Moscow.
NATO did not stop at that, it also announced yet another military aid package for Banderastan: (no translation needed I suppose)
None of that will be enough to make a difference, but there are many more such “aid” programs being discussed, so NATO wants to continue to draw out this war for as long as possible and fight the Russians down to the last Ukrainian.
