Building the Anti-Russian Alliance

by Peter Zeihan on April 5, 2023

Today’s video comes to you from Doubtful Sound in Fiordland National Park.

The European space has historically been disconnected. Between geographical barriers, neutral countries, and bloody history, that shouldn’t come as a surprise. Now that central and western Europe is forming a coalition against the Russians…Putin should be shaking in his boots.

Much of core Europe has already made its stance clear, with German, Portuguese, and Spanish tanks arriving throughout the month. With NATO votes coming up, historically neutral countries like Finland and Sweden are making their alliances clear. And even Turkey can no longer straddle the line and play both sides of this ordeal.

The real kicker here is that the Americans aren’t steering the ship. This is the Europeans doing what’s best for the Europeans. We haven’t seen a coalition this large united against a single power for centuries, and the Russians are in for a rude awakening.

*At 3:50 in the video, Peter mentions that the “French are contributing (to the Ukraine War effort) in a way they haven’t done since WWII” – it’s important to note that the French had boots on the ground in both Desert Storm and Desert Shield

*At the time of posting Finland has already been added to NATO
