Pence Urged Merkel to Send German Navy Into Russian Territorial Waters

That time Pence casually suggested Germany starts WW3 with Russia and Berlin very nearly did it

Merkel was actually going to do it if the French went along as well

Originally published in March 2019.

This is insane. The west is led by simpletons without any idea of the gravity of the actions they’re proposing. Bloomberg reports that US Vice President urged the Germans to sail their warships through the Kerch Strait:

The U.S. leaned on German Chancellor Angela Merkel last month to conduct a naval maneuver in Russia’s backyard aimed at provoking President Vladimir Putin, according to three people familiar with the talks.

At a Feb. 16 meeting at the Munich Security Conference, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence urged Merkel to send German warships through a narrow channel between the Crimean peninsula and mainland Russia to show Putin that Western powers won’t surrender their access to those waters, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The Kerch Strait used to be half Ukrainian (via Crimea) and half Russian territory, but since Russia has added Crimea it now considers that the entire strait lies in Russian territorial waters.

Sending the German war navy into Russian waters would be considered by Moscow no different from the German army stepping on Russian soil. There is simply no doubt that if the German warships failed to heed calls to stop that they would be ultimately fired upon, exactly the way the Russians fired on Ukrainian Navy ships attempting just that in November. (The Russians do not block the right of passage to Kiev but they insist permission be asked in advance.)

Even more insanely, Merkel was actually going to do it (!) if the French went along as well, but Kiev turned it down as not provocative enough (!):

Merkel had indicated she was willing, in coordination with the French, to send a convoy through the waterway as a one-time maneuver but Poroshenko said that wasn’t enough to solve his problem — he wants to ensure the strait is open permanently, the people said.

It fell on Paris (ie the clown Macron) to recognize some lines should not be crossed:

France also refused to take part, judging the idea as an unnecessary provocation, according to another official who declined to be identified.

It should be noted that the Kerch Strait is extremely shallow, and only passable to miniature warship. It connects the Black Sea and Azov Seas. To its left and right is Russian territory and on that territory are Russian anti-ship missile batteries and military airfields. Not only would entering the Kerch be provocative and to Russia a violation of its borders, but the NATO ships would have been easy pickings totally at the mercy of the Russians.

It is the ADELSON Administration . …. Bought and PAID FOR.
Remember how “rich” Trump was “self funded” and therefore could not be influenced by contributions?”! Well $259 million bought him. Those funds came from Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, Paul Singer and Bernard Marcus, donors who have made no secret of their desire for the United States to destroy the Islamic Republic. Adelson, who alongside his wife Miriam are the biggest donors to Trump and the GOP, contributed $205 million to Republicans in the past two cycles and reportedly sent $35 million Trump’s presidential bid.
Sheldon Adelson BRIBED Trump and the Republicans …. This does not include the “favorable and unusual” so-called loans granted Kushner and ?Trump? who is notorious for being in financial difficulty and is desperately hiding his taxes. Trump has lots of energy for defending his tax returns but very little for defending Our borders. Trump’s lawyers will appeal and fight this tooth and nail for his Taxes. But when some P.O.S. “judge” treasonously rules against defending this Nation’s borders from Invaders Trump just shruggs and submits. Makes empty threats about where to put the Invaders, and goes back to putting ISRAEL FIRST.
Trump has diverted American resources to granting Sheldon Adelson’s every wish for a FOREIGN nation.
Trump has NOT fulfilled his DUTY and Promises to the American People as he has focused on Israel.
Trump is attempting to embroil this Nation in an Iran war through blatant LIES(like Iraq).

Deficits higher than ever.

Infrastructure collapsing.

Wall NOT built.

Celadon just bankrupted.

Troops NOT home.

Endless Wars getting BIGGER.

Swamp NOT drained.

But ISRAEL gets everything it ever wants.

Putting ISRAEL First.

“SPECIAL SUPERIORITY” Executive Order for Jews.

Christianity relegated to SECOND CLASS CITIZENSHIP.

Oh great, one crazy person giving crazy advice to another crazy person. The worst thing about it is that those two crazy people have enough power to create some serious problems.

Ms Merkel, an intelligent and well-educated woman with a certain sympathetic cast of mind, has always been a big disappointment due to her utter servility towards the US.

She got herself and her country into tremendous trouble over refugees, but she was trying to express her humanity. It came too late in the story.

If the major European states had stood up to America’s savage bombing in the Middle East earlier, there perhaps wouldn’t have been all those desperate refugees or any crisis.

Merkel the Jewish Bolshevik Commie STASI SNITCH is genociding Christianity.

ISIS never runs out of ammunition or explosives. ………….. WHY?!
ISIS never, ever, attacks ISISrael ………………………………… WHY?!
ISIS is completely surrounded by supposed enemies.
Everyone of the countries surrounding ISIS is SUPPOSEDLY an ally of the USA.
Time for the USA to take a good hard look at it’s “allies”.
Our “intelligence” agencies should have identified and destroyed those who are supplying ISIS but have not …… WHY?!
“our” Generals have not destroyed those who are supplying ISIS ………… WHY?!
You know DAMN WELL WHO supplies their weapons, that kill American Troops.
The FIRST thing a general that WANTS TO WIN a war does ….. is cut off enemy supplies. Time to clean out the Traitors.
The chaos in Syria was winding down. The TRAITORS in the Pentagon had spent 24 months at $10MILLION a DAY bombing sand. ISIS continued to hold miles long parades of OUR equipment complete with flags on clear, dry, sunny days, and the TRAITORS in the Pentagon “could not seem to HIT them with any of those thousands of bombs”. ..
Then the Russians came in and blew the ISIS asses off. Did you notice the parades ENDED. We had no problem with thousands of stealth tankers daily moving oil from isis-controlled areas to turkey(Erdogan’s SON), and on to the entity. Too bad Putin blew ’em up, blew ’em up real good! “Russia didn’t want Syria turned into a #FailedState like Libya & entered the war on Sept 30th 2015. They started bombing 100’s of ISIS oil tanker trucks and oil fields with just 35 planes. ISIS revenues were cut by 50% & things turned around.
ISIS has ZERO antiaircraft abilities. the TRAITORS in the Pentagon could have dropped bombs from HOT AIR BALLOONS or BIPLANES ……. We KNOW who the Pentagon is working for and it is NOT America.
That would be a “tragedy” for Israel and Turkey who are BOTH plotting to seize Syrian land for “greater” Israel and the “caliphate” of Turkey all the while genocidally flooding White, CHRISTIAN Europe with muslum invaders …………. they had to get that war going again …..

Even the Black Sea is for aggressor NATO an area sitting duck for Russia if NATO is doing “childish” things to Russia. It could be the last sea they will sail.
And NATO entering more than the number of warships into the Black Sea is against the Treaty.
And The West is there to try and provoke Russia. No way!

And you know, Russia is not the enemy.
Look what Saudis did to Yemen. AFter 200.000 people murdered and starved US declared oh, uh, error, the Houthis are not a proxy for Iran.

How tragic and corrupt it all is.

Is NATO going to drive the raping, pillaging, murdering, islamic INVADERS back to PALESTINE, where they belong?
We killed countless “communists” because
“The Commies were going to take our JOBS, Our HOMES, and Our WAY of LIFE.”
Well our treasonous politicians are GIVING them away.
Why are we wasting TRILLION$ on weapons to fight Russia and China? Our borders are wide open to pillaging, raping, murdering invaders and the PEDOpriests & politicians “welcome” them.
All the Russians & Chinese have to do is drop their weapons and WALK into America and Europe, demand refuge and WELFARE and make themselves at home. Our PANSY ASSED MISSleaders will give them your Social Security and Country.
Remember that Chinese general who threatened to ship 100million peasants here? The PEDOpriests/politicians would love that.
NATO wants to take on RUSSIA?! (and maybe China)
NATO cannot defend it’s own people at HOME.
NATO cannot beat ISIS-AlQueda-Taliban-AlNusra
NATO families will be raped & murdered as NATO Troops fight far from home.
NATO installations will be sabotaged by Refujihadi Invaders.
NATO Troops should turn their weapons on their ENEMIES that are betraying them.

NATO defeated itself by being invaded and overrun by the REFUJIHADIS from the wars NATO started but can’t FINISH …………. THAT has to be a FIRST in all history.

Mr Putin already said to US you broke the promise you made not to expand eastwards. But you broke your word and you did expand Eastwards.
We will station submnarines in the North Atlantic to cover North America in case it escalates in Europe against violation of Russian borders (including Artic borders).

Finally plain language to the US and Deep State.
