Near the United Nations Glass Palace in New York, there is a metallic sculpture entitled “Evil Defeated by Good”, representing Saint George transfixing a dragon with his lance. It was donated by the USSR in 1990 to celebrate the INF Treaty concluded with the USA in 1987, which banned land-based short- and mid-range nuclear missiles (a reach of between 500 and 5,000 km). Symbolically, the body of the dragon is in fact made with pieces of US Pershing-2 ballistic missiles (originally based in West Germany) and Soviet SS-20 missiles (originally based in the USSR).
But the nuclear dragon, which in the sculpture is shown as dying, is now being reborn. Thanks to Italy and other countries of the European Union, which, at the United Nations General Assembly, voted against the resolution presented by Russia on the “Preservation and Implementation of the INF Treaty”, rejected by 46 to 43 with 78 abstentions.
The European Union – of which 21 of its 27 members are part of NATO (including the United Kingdom, which is currently leaving the EU) – has thus taken a uniform stance with the position of NATO, which in turn has taken a uniform stance with that of the United States.

The Obama administration first, followed by the Trump administration, have accused Russia, without any proof, of experimenting with a missile from the forbidden category, and have announced their intention of withdrawing from the INF Treaty. At the same time, they have launched a programme aimed at renewing the installation of nuclear missiles in Europe to guard against Russia, while others will also be based in the Asia-Pacific region against China….
This country has been set up for a horrific downfall, and the central bankers who arranged for it will make out like bandits. Unless you think the last 3 decades of bipartisan catastrophe was an accident. Unless you think hordes of wealth can’t buy years of infiltration and sustained psychological operations in the media and the bureaucratic machinery of government in order to bring about desired policies. They know psychology and sociology and economics. They have the internal multigenerational infrastructure and the transnational connections. Look at what they’ve already achieved since 1913. Or 1991. Or 2001. Or 2008.
It’s just a long term investment for them. They are disaster capitalists. And they’re tired of toying with and skimming from “western civilization”. They have a new and better social control model: China.
“The powers of financial capitalism had [a] far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”
— Quote from Caroll Quigley’s Tragedy and Hope, Chapter 20
Former WB president Wolfensohn is very concerned with the plights of the peasants under the rule of the “invisible hand”, but never points out the obvious solution: a rational monetary system. Why should he? He’s a banker.
