Europe's Trimarium Bloc (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 01/12/18 3:27 am)

A meeting of the seven nations of Southern Europe took place in Rome on January 10-11. The meeting was to discuss the various problems of Europe, above all the immigration crisis from Africa.

The so-called European Union has never been so divided.

At present, there are at least three main groups.

Germany with its hope to create Kerneurope including Germany, Denmark, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and North Italy (sic).

Germany does not want to antagonize the US politically, but at the same time it wants good economic relations with Russia. In this it is supported by all the Southern European states. At the top of the request list is the North Stream 2, which is opposed by the US. Italy, after having lost the South Stream for political reasons, wants to be connected to this pipeline.

The new "Trimarium" bloc, announced in 2015, is the group of the Eastern European countries. The leader is Poland, which does not want to be under German influence but is also rather Russophobic. The most recent episode was the destruction of a large monument to the Russian Soldier in Szczecin. In all, some 229 monuments have been destroyed.

The Trimarium Bloc is the old dream of the Polish leader Jozef Pilsusdki, after WWI, who wanted to revive the glory of the union of the Kingdom of Poland with the Duchy of Lithuania.

The Trimarium Group at present has taken in the Vizegrad Group and now it includes the following countries: the three Baltic states (with their problems with their Russian minorities), Poland, Czech Republic. Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia. The Latin name Trimarium (Three Seas) indicates that it goes from the Baltic Sea, the Adriatic and the Black Sea.

They do not like Brussels with its silly rules such as welcoming immigrants, with the resultant change of population and culture. Nor do they welcome globalization, as they prefer to stick to their customs and traditions. They could be the salvation of European civilization. But at the same time, unfortunately, to achieve their goals they are not completely independent, as they are very close to the policy of the US Empire.

However, there are also problems among these nations. Hungary and Bulgaria do not seem very anti-Russia, while Hungary hates the old Trianon Treaty and the situation of the Hungarian minorities in Slovakia, Serbia, Romania and Ukraine.

JE comments:  I have to ask Eugenio Battaglia:  what does the "salvation of European civilization" mean?  Is it really in danger?  And is there such a thing as a "European" civilization in the first place?  Isn't SEC (salvation of European civilization) really a code for fear of Islamization?

Whenever pipelines come up on the Forum, I shed a tear for our friend Robert Gibbs, WAISdom's authority on oil, gas, pipelines, and their complex geopolitics.  Bob forcefully argued that the stillborn South Stream project was never more than a political chess move from Putin:
