Stoltenberg: “+100 Billion € for defense since 2016

... never can have enough birdshit.
… never can have enough birdshit.

and this is because we live in a more unpredictable world and we need to invest more in shared security”

(buy more arms so we can feel safe)

Protecting Europe is also about cybersecurity not only about birdshit…

Macron: “operational autonomy” “our armies are more and more interconnected and will be using 5G – we  assure that informations we share over these channels are under our control – not just a commercial issue – it is a strategic one”

Macron: Who is the enemy?

Neither in Russia nor in China does the French president see the opponents of the defense alliance.

Can not talk about budget if one does not know who the enemy really is.

It calls for cooperation against terrorism:

France is nuclear power dependent and Africa / Mali has a lot of uranium, so it is not necessarily just about terrorism.

13 French soldiers died 27th of Nov 2019 in a helicopter crash in Mali.

The fact that France is calling for greater participation by Europeans in the Anti-Terrorist Mission in the Sahel region will be one of the lighter issues at the forthcoming small NATO summit in London.

Macron: NATO brain dead?

A “classic” case of Death Economy that caused direct death of a Journalist.

All this corruption is going on over decades – it is almost in every country and the “very obvious” and drastic cases can often been seen abroad – but they happen in every country.

No wonder people get angry and vote for radical changes (positive or negative).

Common people’s incomes are double and tripple taxed without the possibility of tax avoidance like the multi nationals and the banks that help them with the crime.

Money laundering is particularly severe – because the money could come from any illegal source – including drug dealing and human slave trafficking, in short: straight from the mafia.

‘This morning, the Maltese judiciary upheld criminal investigations into suspicions of money laundering, including against the Maltese Finance Minister Edward Scicluna.

Keith Schembri, the former chef de Cabinet to Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, was released last night from prison.

Involvement in the Caruana Galizia murder investigation

Prominent Maltese businessman Yorgen Fenech was arrested on 20 November 2019 in connection with the Daphne Caruana Galizia murder.

Schembri resigned his government post on 26 November 2019, and was subsequently arrested by the police for questioning.[18][19]

Schembri was later released by police. [20]

Yorgen Fenech, in his court statement, accused Schembri of being the masterming behind the Caruana Galizia murder.[21]

Schembri is also accused to have tried to influence Fenech in order to frame Chris Cardona as responsible for the murder of Caruana Galizia.[22]

(source: Wikipedia)

Yorgen Fenech (born 23 November 1981 in Pietà)[citation needed] is a Maltese businessman whose main interests are casinos and hotels in Malta.[1]

The opposition of Finance Minister Edward Scicluna, the “self-suspended” Minister Chris Cardona and the former Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi against the investigation was rejected.

The three (former) ministers will have to face an official investigation for their involvement in hospital privatization.

On the basis of a Initiative in the EU the conference of presidents of the European Parliament decided yesterday to send an urgent special mission to examine the rule of law in Malta after the recent revelation on the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Parliament will also discuss the recent unveiling in Malta at the December plenary session.

“A Eurozone finance minister under suspicion of money laundering is unbearable.

Our common currency is already suffering from serious reputational damage due to a long series of money laundering scandals.

In this Situation, a Eurozone finance minister under suspicion of money laundering would be another blow.

Edward Scicluna should take his responsibility and resign.

The release of Schembri demonstrates the importance of the European Parliament’s urgent Mission in Malta.

The decision of the police to release him, raises questions about the independence of the Maltese judiciary.

Almost every day new questions arise about the independence of the judiciary and about serious allegations of

corruption at the highest level.

The priority of Parliament’s Mission must be to investigate all possible links with the prime minister, who has protected and defended these ministers for so long. Malta must adhere to the rule of law and European values, so that there can be justice for Daphne Caruana Galizia and her family.”
