A UK warship entered the Black Sea for no other reason than to incite a cock fight. The Black Sea is regulated by the 1936 Montreux Convention which stipulates that access via the straits connecting the Black Sea to the Mediterranean Sea lies solely with specific regulations imposed by Turkey if the vessel is NOT owned by a border state. Those regulations include an eight day notice of entry and a 21 day limitation to remain. Turkey also has the absolute power to close the straits whenever it deems appropriate.
The UK HMS Warship violated those conventions and stipulations by claiming Crimea gave them permission. But Crimea does not have the power to give permission! Thus the UK argument is meritless. And their incursion had only one purpose – to create chaos.
While the Montreux Convention provides that commercial vessels are not subject to the limitations, the UK vessel was a Navy warship subject to the stipulations of articles 8-22. While Turkey is building a new strait, the Istanbul Kanal, which Turkey has stated will not be subject to the Montreux Convention, that strait remains under construction.
Once again, the provocateur was not Russia, but Bojo The Clown.
Pushing within 11 nautical miles of Russia’s coastline, typically a 12 mile deterrent is the international waters safeguard. But even then, permission is required subject to a peaceful nature. Given the hostile attitude held by the UK against Russia, Bojo put the crew members of the HMS in harms way wholly illegally. Had they strayed closer such action would have been a provocation and defense action would be justified.
Russia’s response was to use military jets to circle the ship as it made passage to – nowhere – given it had no purpose, place to go, or reason to be there.
Over one month ago an Iranian cargo ship was believed to be heading toward Venezuela which created dire warnings among US intel agencies. The nautical distance between the US and Venezuela is 2460 miles. Yet several idiots including Bolton and the State Department, called for the US Navy to bomb the cargo ship or confiscate the cargo. The vessel is not a military ship and while the media have stipulated that the cargo is armored vehicles, it is a “guess”.
Fortunately, the Navy disagreed with this fear convention. The ship has since changed course and is deemed to be heading either to Syria or Russia via the Mediterranean Sea.
IN either instance, the US would have absolutely zero authority to destroy or steal cargo from another country’s ship. That would be called ‘Piroting’.
Boris Johnson has not lived up to the person he pretended to be when he was running for PM. In fact, he would seem to be lavishing in his royalty status within the Cabal as he lifelessly enacts whatever Protocol he is directed. While he isn’t riddled with Dementia, his actions are wholly in lock-step with those of an empty headed reptilian brain.
Should he position a UK war against Russia, the upgraded NATO protocol claims that every member state must join in – translation WWIII with absolutely no viable reason, cause, basis or justification other than the fact that The Cabal has continually failed in their Dystopian World in toppling Russia.
