2014 saw two pivotal events that led to the current conflict in Ukraine.

The first, familiar to all, was the coup in Ukraine in which a democratically elected government was overthrown at the direction of the United States and with the assistance of neo-Nazi elements which Ukraine has long harbored.

Shortly thereafter the first shots in the present war were fired on the Russian-sympathetic Donbass region by the newly installed Ukrainian government. The shelling of the Donbass which claimed 14,000 lives has continued for 8 years, despite attempts at a cease-fire under the Minsk accords which Russia, France and Germany agreed upon but Ukraine backed by the US refused to implement. On February 24, 2022, Russia finally responded to the slaughter in Donbass and the threat of NATO on its doorstep.

Russia Turns to the East – China Provides an Alternative Economic Powerhouse.

The second pivotal event of 2014 was less noticed and in fact rarely mentioned in the Western mainstream media. In November of that year according to the IMF, China’s GDP surpassed that of the U.S. in purchasing power parity terms (PPP GDP). (This measure of GDP is calculated and published by the IMF, World Bank and even the CIA. Students of international relations like economics Nobel Laureate, Joseph Stiglitz, Graham Allison and many others consider this metric the best measure of a nation’s comparative economic power.) One person who took note and who often mentions China’s standing in the PPP-GDP ranking is none other than Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.

From one point of view, the Russian action in Ukraine represents a decisive turn away from the hostile West to the more dynamic East and the Global South. This follows decades of importuning the West for a peaceful relationship since the Cold War’s end. As Russia makes its Pivot to the East, it is doing its best to ensure that its Western border with Ukraine is secured.

Following the Russian action in Ukraine, the inevitable U.S. sanctions poured onto Russia. China refused to join them and refused to condemn Russia. This was no surprise; after all Putin’s Russia and Xi’s China had been drawing ever closer for years, most notably with trade denominated in ruble-renminbi exchange, thus moving toward independence from the West’s dollar dominated trade regime.

The World Majority Refuses to Back U.S. Sanctions

But then a big surprise. India joined China in refusing to honor the US sanctions regime. And India kept to its resolve despite enormous pressure including calls from Biden to Modi and a train of high level US, UK and EU officials trekking off to India to bully, threaten and otherwise attempting to intimidate India. India would face “consequences,” the tired US threat went up. India did not budge.

India’s close military and diplomatic ties with Russia were forged during the anti-colonial struggles of the Soviet era. India’s economic interests in Russian exports could not be countermanded by U.S. threats. Now India and Russia are now working on trade via ruble-rupee exchange. In fact, Russia has turned out to be a factor that put India and China on the same side, pursuing their own interests and independence in the face of U.S. diktat. Moreover with trade in ruble-renminbi exchange already a reality and with ruble-rupee exchange in the offing, are we about to witness a Renminbi-Ruble-Rupee world of trade – a “3R” alternative to the Dollar-Euro monopoly? Is the world’s second most important political relationship, that between India and China, about to take a more peaceful direction? What’s the world’s first most important relationship?

India is but one example of the shift in power. Out of 195 countries, only 30 have honored the US sanctions on Russia. That means about 165 countries in the world have refused to join the sanctions. Those countries represent by far the majority of the world’s population. Most of Africa, Latin America (including Mexico and Brazil), East Asia (excepting Japan, South Korea, both occupied by U.S. troops and hence not sovereign, Singapore and the renegade Chinese Province of Taiwan) have refused. (India and China alone represent 35% of humanity.)

Add to that fact that 40 different countries are now the targets of US sanctions and there is a powerful constituency to oppose the thuggish economic tactics of the U.S.

Finally, at the recent G-20 Summit a walkout led by the US when the Russia delegate spoke was joined by the representatives of only 3 other G-20 countries, with 80% of these leading financial nations refusing to join! Similarly, a US attempt to bar a Russian delegate from a G-20 meeting later in the year in Bali was rebuffed by Indonesia which currently holds the G-20 Presidency.

Nations Taking Russia’s side are no longer poor as in Cold War 1.0.

These dissenting countries of the Global South are no longer as poor as they were during the Cold War. Of the top 10 countries in PPP-GDP, 5 do not support the sanctions. And these include China (number one) and India (number 3). So the first and third most powerful economies stand against the US on this matter. (Russia is number 6 on that list about equal to Germany, number 5, the two being close to equal, belying the idea that Russia’s economy is negligible.)

These stands are vastly more significant than any UN vote. Such votes can be coerced by a great power and little attention is paid to them in the world. But the economic interests of a nation and its view of the main danger in the world are important determinants of how it reacts economically – for example to sanctions. A “no” to US sanctions is putting one’s money where one’s mouth is.

We in the West hear that Russia is “isolated in the world” as a result of the crisis in Ukraine. If one is speaking about the Eurovassal states and the Anglosphere, that is true. But considering humanity as a whole and among the rising economies of the world, it is the US that stands isolated. And even in Europe, cracks are emerging. Hungary and Serbia have not joined the sanctions regime and of course most European countries will not and indeed cannot turn away from Russian energy imports crucial to their economies. It appears that the grand scheme of U.S. global hegemony to be brought about by the US move to WWII Redux, both Cold and Hot, has hit a mighty snag.

For those who look forward to a multipolar world, this is a welcome turn of events emerging out of the cruel tragedy of the U.S. proxy war in Ukraine. The possibility of a saner, more prosperous multipolar world lies ahead – if we can get there.

    Sorry, but this is moronic!

    Sure, India is nominally number 3 in GDP. BUT – per capita – the physical standard of living is inferior to late medieval England! The place is yet another example of the Malthusian catastrophe, the fertility rate is now about 2 but only because they are so miserably poor that they can’t physically have more than two kids each! The amount of food grain per person remains at a low level of subsistence – about 150 kg/person/year – about a third of China. So yeah, on paper, India’s economy is large – but it is all tied up in keeping a massive number of miserably poor people just barely alive! The ability of India to create a real surplus, to be able to invest or create new things, is very small.

    India is only valuable as a source of miserably poor cheap labor. Which the rich love, but which does not actually create much real wealth.

  4. One would hope that there still are a few sober minds in the Pentagon. The brown-nosers there are generally in charge of the operation (the result of Obaminable kicking out the flag-rank patriots) and likely his understudy, the very image of galloping senility continuing that anti-American policy.

    Nevertheless, even those political generals and admirals are well supplied with accurate intelligence on Russia’s military edge. These commanders also likely have staff-officers who are West Point and Naval Academy graduates, who are well-trained, geopolitically aware and totally abashed by the hypersonic missiles which only the Russians possess.

    The financial control nexus and their Talmudist minions are practically screaming for war. However, their numbers are limited and their influence questionable in the Pentagon and perhaps also in Langley and at the NSA. Not too many in those institutions are suicidally inclined.

  6. Isn’t it ironic that Russia with the largest landmass and lowest population per square mile of its landmass, is supported by China and India with almost half the world population.
    If it were not for (((IMF))) and (((WEF))) propping up the rest, we would see a majority of states supporting Russia.
    It’s obvious western tyrants have lost their edge on global power, and have instead succumb to petty support of failed GlobalHomoZioBIGsRxMIC3BLM PIGs who seek to turn every nation state into a GlobalHomo paradise run by pedophiles and banker Baron crooks supporting everything contrary to a civilized society.

    On Russia’s media strategy –

    Having monitored a variety of news outlets, domestic and foreign, corporate and independent, I’ve concluded that the Russian strategy is to have RT tell the truth, to report facts accurately. I’m not the only one who has noticed that RT is far more reliable than the Western corporate media. The stark contrast with the Western oligarchs’ mainstream media is itself becoming a severe attack on the Western media.

    The Western oligarchs must see that when their castle wall of censorship, lies, and smears collapses, the banking mafia in the City of London and Wall Street will be arrested, tried, and imprisoned. Or possibly executed for mass murder. Israel’s invincible impunity, which has depended on the financial power of this Jewish supremacist mafia, will simultaneously vanish. So they are thrashing madly to stave off the truth.

    Q: Why do you care? Seems to me, that the author’s argument ‘stands,’ regardless of your quibble. Then (Mr Walsh):

    These stands are vastly more significant than any UN vote. Such votes can be coerced by a great power and little attention is paid to them in the world

    Me: Agree, with one *glaring* exception:

    “Once again this year, the UN General Assembly repeatedly voted overwhelmingly to criticize Israel. Why?
    BY PETER LARSON DECEMBER 31, 2021”

    Quote:

    “Again in 2021, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly passed 14 resolutions aimed at criticizing Israel (and supporting the Palestinians). On every resolution, only a handful of countries (among them the USA, Canada and a sprinkle of small Pacific island nations) stood with Israel. Some others abstained.
    The assembly debates the SAME (or nearly the same) motions every year, and all of them denounce Israel’s repeated violations of UN General Assembly resolutions”

    https://mondoweiss.net/2021/12/once-again-this-year-the-un-general-assembly-repeatedly-voted-overwhelmingly-to-criticize-israel-why/

    Then there’s this:

    “UN chief ‘shocked’ as Russian missiles hit Ukrainian capital during his visit
    By Shiloh Payne
    UN Secretary-General António Guterres says attacks on Kyiv left him “shocked” after Russia shelled the city while he was visiting”
    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-04-29/ukraine-russia-war-live-updates-putin-zelenskyy-mariupol-kyiv/101015702

    Guterres has also opined that Russia’s ‘rescue operation’ is non-UN conform [forgetting what ZUSA has done, Iraq, Libya, Syria say – to mention only a small list of ZUSA’s depredations, killing *millions*.] Russia has asserted ‘artlicle 51 conform; operation to stop Ukros attacking Donbass = R2P.’

    *This* tells us that Guterres is a ‘puppet’ of ZUSA, hardly an ‘appropriate’ stance. Guterres could follow the author’s article, and align with ‘the good guys’ [and with the overwhelming GA, instead of appearing corrupt.] rgds

    Since this majority of the world’s population is likely even now unaware of Russia’s ongoing war of aggression and the resulting trade conflict, this implicit argument simply amounts to an appeal toward popular ignorance. What is important in this context is that the vast majority of irreplaceable high technology exports that Russia needs for many of its products and the regular maintenance of machinery or aircraft come from those countries that have imposed the crippling sanctions.

  13. the coup in Ukraine in which a democratically elected government was overthrown at the direction of the United States and with the assistance of neo-Nazi elements which Ukraine has long harbored.

    That is comprehensively denied by the two entirely honest Australians who speak Ukrainian and know Ukraine well. One has been running a business there for 10 years and has Ukrainian wife and children and his father who has visited frequently and was the only professor to teach an MBA course in the USSR (in 1990).

    He has just pointed out that there were no Azov people anywhere near Bucha and asserted that Ukrainian punishers of collaborators would have been utterly idiotic to leave bodies which would appear to be wearing a sign of Russian sympathies. He didn’t have time to list more than a couple of the drone filmed proofs of Russians apparently killing Ukrainian civilians in Bucha. He pointed out that leaving the bodies with symbols of Russian sympathies on them made more rational sense for the Russians….

    *** **** ***,

    Westerners have known, even if misunderstood, much more about Russia with over 150 million population than Ukraine with 40 million and often are still stuck with biased views. Interesting in this context that Mearsheimer in the 90s side Ukraine should keep its nuclear weapons because it faced future invasion by Russia!

    It occurs to me that Ukraine being persuaded to give up its nuclear weapons implies an obligation to defend it on the part of those that dud the persuading.

    It’s not a measure of GDP per capita. A country of 1.5 billion people is orders of magnitude more economically significant than a small state with high personal wealth like Luxembourg.

    India is only valuable as a source of miserably poor cheap labor. Which the rich love, but which does not actually create much real wealth.

    This could be “we’re still in 1992” type of thinking, according to which for example China is one huge North Korea dotted with cheap shoe-making factories, Russia is one huge frozen Detroit, and all of Eastern Europe is whores and thugs living in hovels.

    India apparently does have a serious middle class, but it’s fragile, and the kung flu measures killed a third of it.

    “Prior to the pandemic, it was anticipated that 99 million people in India would belong in the global middle class in 2020. A year into the pandemic, this number is estimated to be 66 million, cut by a third.

    https://indianexpress.com/article/explained/why-saving-the-middle-class-is-critical-for-indias-economy-and-its-democracy-7279620/

    If the poor devils are left alone, then in another say 5 years, they’ll climb back to having a middle class the size of America’s, in absolute numbers.

    Of course, no one will be left alone, as the Great Reset continues throwing everyone into poverty, but this will affect everyone, so whatever. Point is — before the reptiles begun destroying the world circa 2019, India did indeed have a pretty enormous middle class. Even Brazil had a middle class of 53% of the population, before the planet’s wise managers decided to show the filthy peasants what’s what.

    All across the world the various wogs had just about managed to claw to a normal life, when it turned out some people have other plans and normal life in not on the menu.

    India is only valuable as a source of miserably poor cheap labor. Which the rich love, but which does not actually create much real wealth.

    Foreigners tend to underestimate India which does possess a vast land albeit overpopulated with poor people. But Indians have accomplished a lot in STEM disciplines, both inside and outside of India which is home to some of the largest ITO/BPO, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries in the world. They also have world-class defense and space industries, in cooperation with their strategic partner Russia going back to Soviet times. In fact, India is the biggest buyer of Russian-made weapons, accounting for 25% of Russia’s arms exports. Besides economics, India is a nuclear-armed State which the USA wants to use against China as part of its ‘Indo-Pacific’ strategy.

    So the refusal of India to sanction Russia is a big problem for the USA because that defeats the purpose of QUAD which is to ‘contain’ China. The other East Asian sidekicks of the USA likewise could defect to the Russian-led East from the US-led West once the USD pyramid scheme implodes. Once the USD goes, ‘no money no honey’.

  28. This is a pointer for the future.

    Discounting ziotrolls and bonehead westerners who believe in the american way of bombing for israel, there will come forth in the west a cadre of sensible people who will seek beneficial relations with Russia-China-GS.

    These will not be self-hating handwringers and bleeding hearts, although there is ample room for a sober review of past actions especially in Mad Dog and Perfidious.
    Those who think that bombing Three Gorges dam is a good idea are already redundant in world affairs and deserve to die off as a group either naturally or otherwise.
    Those who look for Trade-Prosperity-Good relations with cultural sport etc exchanges will take the lead. This of necessity excludes kike-mason banksters and their cynical pathetic mouthpieces in these columns/elsewhere.

    It will involve a major rethink in Palestine, Iraq among other places, since this coming system involves variants of National Socialism. NSists are happy for others to build their own nations, so in this way it will lead to repatriation of Arabs etc from Europe, probably assisted with personal grants and govt assurances of no-more-kike-wars.
    There are already significant numbers in the west to effect this.
    I know some of them, perhaps you also do.

    “a democratically elected government was overthrown at the direction of the United States and with the assistance of neo-Nazi elements which Ukraine has long harbored.”

    — The “Nazi elements” have been harbored by the governments of the US, UK, and Canada with the full collaboration of the Jewish Community in each of these countries.

    In Canada, the approval of the Nazi elements went so far as to government-funded Nazi memorials, educational centers, and parades. A progeny of a Nazi collaborator Chomyak is currently a de facto ruler of Canada.

    In the US, a progeny of a prominent Banderite Dobriansky (who had a sinecure at the Georgetown University) is a vicious zionist and war profiteer:

    Paula Dobriansky supported advocacy efforts aimed at pushing the United States to pursue a militaristic post-Cold War posture — including taking on regimes in the Middle East even before the 9/11 attacks — through her association with groups like the Hudson Institute and the Project for the New American Century (PNAC).

    The Jewish Lobby has been harassing honest historians and engineers for truthful research in WWI, thus showing usual Jewish gangsterism aimed at protecting the profitable schema of holobiz and Jewish privileges at large. The same Jews have been the strongest supporters of the followers of Stepan Bandera in Canada and Ukraine. https://www.eutimes.net/2022/03/us-adl-endorses-nazis-in-ukraine-says-they-are-a-new-type-of-nazis-pro-jewish/

    When Kolomoisky, the president of the Jewish Community of Ukraine (and Israeli citizen), founded and funded several Nazi death squads to protect his property in eastern Ukraine (the Kolomoisky’s thugs are guilty of 14.000 deaths of people of all ages, including babies and pregnant women), the (Jewish) Wall Street Journal published a fawning article naming the criminal “the most powerful man in Ukraine.” https://www.wsj.com/articles/ukraines-secret-weapon-feisty-oligarch-ihor-kolomoisky-1403886665 “Ukraine’s Secret Weapon: Feisty Oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky”

    Suddenly the word “Nazi” is sweet to the Jewish ears. Is this because the Banderites are such a pliable cannon fodder in the Judea War on Russia?

    None of the 52 main Jewish organizations in the US deplored the Nuland-Kagan’s collaboration with self-proclaimed Nazis, and none of the 52 main Jewish organizations deplored the murderous activities of Kolomoisky’s Nazi battalions against civilians in eastern Ukraine. The same Jewish organizations are busy organizing galas and other events to protect the current thoroughly Nazified regime in Kiev.

  43. Ever since the zionists created their privately owned FED and IRS, which are 2 planks of the communist manifesto the ZUS has been the main driver of the zionist agenda world wide. The ZUS funded the communist aka bolshevik revolution in Russia which turned Christian Russia government into a criminal communist enterprise , see the book Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution by Anthony Sutton.

    With the zionist creation of their FED and IRS came the zionist created wars starting with WWI right down to the wars in the middle east and the war in the Ukraine all fought by the ZUS at the direction of the zionists who have been in control of America since 1913. The war in the Ukraine is a direct result of the coup in Kiev which was directed by the ZUS and the zionist Nuland and which led to the breakaway Donbass and the attacks on the Donbass region by the Ukraine government for 8 years and the killing of over 16,000 civilians in the Donbass region and Russia went into the Ukraine to stop this slaughter of the civilians in Donbass. It is ironic how the zionists are now supporting the the very nazis that they claimed killed 6 million Jews?

    As Edgar Cayce foresaw , Russia has returned to its Christian roots and has become the hope of the world in its battle against the satanist international communist beast that has been roaming the world destroying nations and humanity. God bless Putin and God bless Russia.

    An email sent today to my MP:

    ‘Dear Mr XXXXXX

    Perhaps you are not aware of the global laughing stock that the UK now is, whilst getting the world’s worst genocidal murderer (the US) to use its financial murderers on Wall Street to conduct a rigged ‘beauty parade’ to award the club to a US vulture capitalist with a long track record in funding genocide via the Republican Party?

    It is not possible for anyone fit to be an MP to claim that either the Democrats or the Republicans in the USA have not funded every foreign genocide committed by the World’s Premier Terrorist organisation. You would have to be badged as mentally defective.

    It is not possible to claim that the USA is demanding sanctions against Russia in Europe without concluding that the USA is at war with Europe, despite NATO members being predominantly European. The USA’s purchase of Russian oil has INCREASED since the ‘sanctions’ started, not decreased. The USA has been playing the currency markets going both short and long on the Russian Ruble and making billions of dollars doing so, even if they are doing it quietly in jurisdictions a long way from Wall Street or the Square Mile. The USA has zero principles about anything other than global genocides to achieve global hegemony. Any fool who will not acknowledge that is unfit to be a Representative of any human being, either inside or outside the United States of Murdering Americans.

    Todd Boehly has been continuously funding the Republican Party for well over a decade and thus is an enthusiastic funder of murder overseas, looting overseas and wars of aggression overseas (the same would be true through funding the Democrat Party). It is not possible for him to deny this, nor is it possible for him to be a fit and proper person to own a football club in the UK based on his enthusiastic dedication to foreign murder. He does not have the right to answer for his crimes, since those he has funded the murder of are dead and gone, unable to charge him for his evil.

    No-one in Westminster has any credibility on earth claiming that Vladimir Putin ‘is the worst war criminal of the 21st century’. The short list for that title goes exclusively to US psychopaths. The war in Iraq was off the scale worse than what is going on in Ukraine, despite every lie told by Zelensky, by the CIA, MI6, the prostitutes of the MSM, Tobias Ellwood, Liz Truss or the like.

    Was a single sanction placed on the USA and the UK for their Iraq war crimes? Of course not. Were the assets of Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, the Koch Brothers etc etc seized for ‘being too close to the Republican and/or Democrat party’? You jest.

    There can be no place for any war crimes trials against Russia until proceedings against the USA, the UK and other western genocidalists have been concluded. Any attempt by any American to challenge that needs peremptory firing squad death sentences. It is a non-negotiable basic truism and the time to treat US citizens as human beings passed 20 years ago, when they murdered their own citizens on 9/11 to justify murdering a million more in the Middle East.

    Any US owner of any UK sports club must state, categorically, the following:

    1. The world’s worst genocidal murderer since 1945 is the US Government.
    2. Both the Republican and Democrat Parties have colluded in genocides over that 80 year period, never voting against a single genocide of strategic importance to the genocidal hegemonists who rule the USA (none of whom reside on Capitol Hill).
    3. The US sports market is a closed shop cartel, rigging outcomes routinely and guaranteeing superprofits to cartel owners. It is the absolute opposite of capitalism, a free market and free competition.
    4. The US has contempt for the concept of ‘community assets’, considering sports clubs to be ‘movable franchises’, a concept which is absolute anathema to over 95% of all UK sports fans.
    5. Operation Shock N Awe makes the ‘Special Military Operation’ in Ukraine look like a walk in the park.
    6. The murder of 500,000+ Iraqi citizens was genocide, not Acceptable Collateral Damage.
    7. Fallujah is a stain on US history and was the date when the legitimacy of the US empire died a timely death.
    8. The genocide of Libya was an act with but one goal in mind: preventing the sale of oil and gas in non-dollar-denominated currency. Libya represented zero military threat to the USA and Hillary Clinton needs the death sentence for her psychopathically deranged description of that disgusting, inhuman, genocidal operation.
    9. The people of Syria support their president, Bashar al Assad, and there is no place whatsoever for US psychopaths to challenge their right to choose their own leader.
    10. The Chagos Islands are not an appropriate place to displace people from to create a US military base. US military bases further than 1000 miles from US territory are an outrage, an abomination and a sign of the US’ terminal bloodlust.
    11. Europe is NOT a satrapy of the USA and the continent has an absolute right to tell the USA where to get off.
    12. The USA does not believe in free markets, as evidenced by its shocking behaviour concerning Nordstream II, sanctions on Russia and its never-ending stock market corruption on Wall Street.

    I hope Nadine Dorries will enunciate these principles, if she wishes to be seen as a fit and proper person to be an MP.

    Russia acted in self-defense and in defense of Russian speaking people…

    The first sentence in my critique was a veiled reference to part of a memorable slogan that was popularized by George Orwell’s book Nineteen-eighty-four, published in 1949:

    …ignorance is strength.

    The author of this essay was suggesting that the ignorance of poorly informed people throughout the world, along with their leaders’ ability to exploit it, somehow reflected strength in favor of Russia. In reality this is a sign of weakness, although many are happy to witness Russia confirming its pariah state status.

    As if not wanting to be outdone by the author, your idiotic comment then reminded me of the first portion of that slogan by Orwell:

    “War is peace…”

    In other words, according to you, Russia feels it has to aggressively destroy the residential areas of Russian-speaking Ukrainians to come to their defense, even though they are offering stiff resistance instead of welcoming them as liberators – purportedly the delusion that Putin must have initially entertained in his convoluted mind to motivate these attacks.

    More than half a century ago Americans were repulsed by this kind of crazy “logic” that you have provided. The journalist Peter Arnett, working from Saigon to cover the highly unpopular war in Vietnam, reported, as quoted by Wikipedia, citing the New York Times:

    “…published on 7 February 1968, Arnett wrote about the Battle of Bến Tre: “‘It became necessary to destroy the town to save it,’ a United States major said today. He was talking about the decision by allied commanders to bomb and shell the town regardless of civilian casualties, to rout the Vietcong.” The quotation was gradually altered in subsequent publications, eventually becoming the more familiar, “We had to destroy the village in order to save it

    It is truly instructive to see your comments, in which you shamelessly deconstruct yourself as a moron at regular intervals, as if though that would inevitably enhance your appeal – and with a few like-minded readers that may even be the case.

    The full quote by Orwell:

    War is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength.

    First of all how would the civilians know where the shells were coming from? Second, if they knew they were coming from the Ukrainian side would they say so in the presence of the Ukrainian army? Third – would it make any sense for the Russians to fire artillery shots at their own positions while they were still in the town? Their propaganda is incredibly stupid.

So they egged on Putin to come to the rescue by attacking the country and their own man Zelensky, pushed them into a suicidal mission of fighting back the Russians (promised arms will come but will not be deliveredto the “front”).

    So they (Banderites) are trapped and will be killed off and in the meantime, ten million natives will be sent off to the far corners of the globe to be slaves and never to return to question the pending absolute control by the Tribe. And Putin will be paid off by lifting of the sanctions by the second Trump administration to keep quiet.

    I hope you realize that a reducing population only affects the political class and their hangers on. It has no real negative effect on the average person. It may / will benefit those that can’t purchase a home now when there’s a glut of homes in the future and the prices collapse, for example.

    The rancher wants to keep his herd up and expanding. That’s what gov’t is – a rancher with a herd of cattle. The cattle are too dumb to know they’re cattle so they keep cooperating with the rancher. Gov’t wants an economy that allows them to pay for weapons and scumbag soldiers to start wars with their mafia enemies.

    It’s the same thing with GDP. Only gov’t cares about GDP since it represents how much more they can steal from the working man; it represents their future profit. The average person isn’t interested in GDP.

    Unless you really are determined to ignore logic and common sense, so that you can stand with Ukraine regardless of any facts that may challenge your allegiance, it is impossible to not see that Russia has nothing to do with these atrocities in Bucha.

    From the article,

    Evidence collected by the Guardian during a visit to Bucha, and reviewed by independent weapons experts, showed that Russian troops used cluster munitions – which are banned in much of the world – and powerful unguided bombs in populated areas.

    How did they know which side used cluster munitions – why are they saying it was the Russians who did that? There is no way to tell. However the question could be asked, why would the Russians do that when they were still in full control of the town?

    The fact that many of the victims were wearing white armbands proves that the Russians were still in the city when they were killed. So is not a lot more logical to assume that the shelling was fired by the Ukrainians, who were shooting at the Russians?

    Likewise it had been documented many times prior to Bucha that both cluster munitions and fléchettes were in use in the Ukrainian army. The attack on the Kramatorsk railway station was debunked in detail by experts of the highest competence, like Scott Ritter.

    Even the serial number of the missile pointed at the Ukrainians. Did they write about that in The Guardian? Did the BBC mention that? You see that it does not matter what happened in reality, they will always blame it on the Russians.

    The missile in Kramatorsk was cluster munitions and the shelling in Bucha was fired while the Russians were still holding the town. The Ukrainians have been using fléchettes the entire time, which the reports in the press prove.

    And then they say in the article,

    Dozens of civilians who died during the Russian occupation of the Ukrainian city of Bucha were killed by tiny metal arrows from shells of a type fired by Russian artillery, forensic doctors have said.

    The Ukrainians have the same weapons. Their artillery is Russian. At least they have to admit that it is not possible to establish which side fired those rounds, because both of them could have. Are they saying this?

    No, because they are lying.

A mother with her child runs outside, and we’re looking through binoculars. We can’t storm, we can’t enter, we can’t do anything. And then they shoot the mother in the spine. The mother falls… and we scream to the child: “RUN!!! RUN!!!” from all sides. The child froze, not understanding what to do. On one hand he wants to run, but on the other he wants to help his mother. And then suddenly his head, get this, this child’s HEAD gets shot by this scum, this evil BEAST. In this very moment, we all just suddenly forgot what death means, we forgot that there could be snipers there, just as a Crowd, Broke In! We threw smoke grenades so that they couldn’t see us. We broke in and just tore up all of them [fighters] that were inside. Well we got in there, but not just got in there. In the sense that people sacrificed their lives.

    Since the collapses of Soviet Union in 1991, the U.S had the opportunity to assume world leadership, to shape the world for the betterment of human condition around the globe, but the “Cabals” in Washington have hijacked “America’s Open Political System” for their own “Tribal” interests; leading the Superpower from behind, to the detriment of American people – all for their own selfish tribal interests – this has started with the first Gulf War in 1991, then various levels of U.S. military interventions around the world, especially in the middle east and north Africa – where the U.S has manufactured crisis after crisis, proxy wars for political exploitation, resulting in ever growing insecurity around the region; misery, disease, genocide in Rwanda, refugee crisis, mass migration, and so on — all of which have been happening under the leadership of all mighty the United States of America – e.g. the middle east, once prosperous nations, have been decimated by the U.S manufactured crisis; one crisis after another, all have led that region to a state of total despair, destruction of their cities and mass migration of their people – all for fanatical tribal interest of a few, to please the Cabals in Washington — the U.S wars and Proxy wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, the Coup in Egypt, all have contributed, to destabilizing these nations beyond despair; In the nearest and north east of Africa, the U.S foreign policy has produced the old style global insecurity, it has revived Somalis Sea Pirates from 17 centuries, Slave trading, mass migrations of ordinary Syrian people, refugee crisis, poverty and proxy wars, in one country after another, ironically, all of these crisis are happening in the neighbouring countries near Israel, the Jewish state with deep influence in Washington’s power centres.

    But the U.S. proxy war in Ukraine might be a bit different, ironically this war may turn out to become the beginning of a new era, a new world order more intone with the humanity’s genuine needs – less dominated with the tribal interests in Washington, but genuine needs for peace and prosperity for all humanity – “this is a welcome turn of events emerging out of the cruel tragedy of the U.S. proxy war in Ukraine, let’s hope for the better days ahead.

    I am puzzled by your purported reply to my very limited comment which pointed out in particular that the flechette ammunition was totally consistent with some of those killed at Bucha being killed in other ways and that it was not ridiculous to suppose that Russians might have fired them at some targets while they still had forces in Bucha. No proof either way: it is totally inconclusive. Also – thank you for blowing the Russian version (I think it is also the highly compromised Scott Ritter’s version too) out of the water.

    The fact that many of the victims were wearing white armbands proves that the Russians were still in the city when they were killed

    So they could easily have been shot by Russians. I merely point out that they could easily have had white armbands put on them by Russians who wanted to be able to say that the killings were Ukrainian revenge on collaborators. We simply don’t know what happened absent an investigation that one can rely on.

  134. @Joe Paluka

    Cuba is one example… North Korea and Iran and Venezuela are others. In spite of all the propaganda – they are functioning societies still. Iran does a pretty good job while North Korea’s issues are mainly self inflicted – while Venezuela is in South America which says enough.
    As you noted – Russia has far more human capital and natural resources than any of them.

    The main reason why Singapore sided with the USA is pretty simple to understand. Singapore is a financial hub and therefore highly dependent on the US-controlled SWIFT-system. If Singapore gets cut off from SWIFT, its entire economy will collapse like a house of cards overnight.

    “ We strongly believe:

    1. It must be made clear to Ukrainian President Zelensky that there will be no military assistance from either the US or NATO if he does not restrain Ukrainian hawks itching to give Russia a bloody nose — hawks who may well expect the West to come to Ukraine’s aid in any conflict with Russia. (There must be no repeat of the fiasco of August 2008, when the Republic of Georgia initiated offensive military operations against South Ossetia in the mistaken belief that the US would come to its assistance if Russia responded militarily.)

    2. We recommend that you quickly get back in touch with Zelensky and insist that Kiev halt its current military buildup in eastern Ukraine. Russian forces have been lining up at the border ready to react if Zelensky’s loose talk of war becomes more than bravado. Washington should also put on hold all military training activity involving US and NATO troops in the region. This would lessen the chance that Ukraine would misinterpret these training missions as a de facto sign of support for Ukrainian military operations to regain control of either the Donbas or Crimea.

    3. It is equally imperative that the U.S. engage in high-level diplomatic talks with Russia to reduce tensions in the region and de-escalate the current rush toward military conflict. Untangling the complex web of issues that currently burden U.S.-Russia relations is a formidable task that will not be accomplished overnight. This would be an opportune time to work toward a joint goal of preventing armed hostilities in Ukraine and wider war.”

    Thanks for giving the reason to provide the following factual information:

    Lazar Kaganovich (Kogan), of Jewish descent, was born near Kiev, Ukraine. From 1925 to 1928, he was the First Secretary of the Communist Party of Ukraine. Kaganovich was Stalin’s brother-in-law and one of a small group of Stalin’s top sadists pushing for very high rates of collectivization after 1929. Kaganovich became Stalin’s butcher of Christian Russians during the late 1920s and early 1930s when the Kremlin launched its war against the kulaks (small landowners) and implemented a ruthless policy of land collectivization.

    The resulting state-organized forced famine killed 7,000,000 Ukrainians between 1932 and 1933 and inflicted enormous suffering on the Soviet Central Asian republic of Kazakhstan. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lazar_Kaganovich

    The First Secretary of the Communist Party of Kazakhstan was Filipp Goloshchyokin (born Shaya Itsikovich, Jewish). His policies in Kazakhstan resulted in the Goloshchyokin Genocide – the death of 40% of all Kazakh population. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filipp_Goloshchyokin

    Why don’t they teach this in American schools? Yet the fictitious story of Anne Frank is imposed on the kids.

    On any analysis, Lazar Kaganovich [Kogan] was one of the worst mass murderers in history, and little wonder that during World War II large numbers of Ukrainians greeted the Germans as liberators, with many joining the Waffen-SS to keep Communism from enslaving all of Europe.

    http://www.jewwatch.com/jew-leaders-kaganovich.html

    Currently, the progeny of the Ukrainians from the Waffen-SS (Banderites) are led by Zionists: from the American Ziocon Nuland-Kagan (a wife of a rabid Zionist Robert Kagan) and self-proclaimed Zionists Biden and Pelosi to the Ukrainian Jews Mr. Kolomojsky (the President of the Jewish Community of Ukrainer and founder and funder of the Nazi battalions Azov, Aidar, and Dnipro), and homoerotic actor Zelensky, who became a president of Ukraine on a promise to implements the Minsk agreements. Zelensky betrayed the electorate and pursued the anti-Ukrainian and anti-Russian policies dictated by his Zionist bosses in DC.

    THAT is called Retaliation in Kind. The following was from an anti-China website:

    “However, to go back in time, Tibet had created a huge empire in Central Asia. About 500 years prior to Buddha Sakyamuni coming to the world, which was around 1063 BC, a figure called Lord Shenrab Miwo had reformed the primitive ways of the Shen race. In fact, Miwo was the individual responsible for founding the Tibetan Bon religion. From 629 to 49 BC, King Songsten Gampo was on the throne. At this time, Tibet developed into a powerful military presence and Gampo strongly promoted Buddhism. Then from 755 to 97, King Trisong Detsen took over reign, a time when the Tibetan Empire was at its best. The arms invaded several other Central Asian countries in addition to China. Then in 763, the Chinese capital at Ch’ang-an, which is today known as Xian, was seized by the Tibetans. The Emperor fled, allowing the Tibetans to appoint a new Emperor. ”

    At one time the Han emperor even had to marry off one of the princes to appease the Tibetan King .

    Mongolians, not Hans, were the original yellow peril that once sent cold chill down whiteys spine.
    The mongol horde overran and ruled China in the 12C .
    Had the Hans not turned the table on the Mongols two hundred years later, the euros might be speaking Mongolian today LOL
    mONGOLians should be thankful that the Hans didnt take revenge for atrocities committed during the invasion and two hundred years of tyrannical rule.

    Same for the Manchurian, who committed mass massacres on Han civilians during the invasion and occupation.
    In true generous Han tradition, There was no revenge killing when the ROC ended the Qing DYnasty.

    These are all nomad conquerors who ended up as the conquered.
    It all happened centuries before the English colonised USAss, Canada, Australia, NZ..thousands of miles away from home,

    By the per capita PPP-GDP metric, Luxembourg and Lichtenstein would be the world’s greatest powers.
    That is obviously absurd – and therefore you are obviously the moron you think others to be.
    What counts for national power, how many soldiers can be paid, how many infrastructure projects can be financed etc is not per capita GDP but total GDP.

    Had the Hans not turned the table on the Mongols two hundred years later, the euros might be speaking Mongolian today. Mongolians should be thankful that the Hans didn’t take revenge for atrocities committed during the invasion and two hundred years of tyrannical rule.

    The Mongol Yuan lasted less than a hundred years, from 1271 to 1368 CE, 97 years to be exact, with 58 of those years either under the Kaidu-Kublai War from 1268 to 1301 CE, the Song Resistance from 1271 to 1279 CE, or the Ming Rebellion from 1350 to 1368 CE. The Yuan Dynasty saw the Mongols appointing Han Confucian Scholar-Officials to run the Chinese Empire which became independent of the Mongol Empire after the death of Kublai Khan in 1294 CE, partly to appease the Han Chinese but mostly because the Mongols didn’t have the competence to run the Chinese Empire.

    Not even the Russians understand who precisely is behind the proxy war against them that began with the U.S.-financed overthrow of the former regime in Ukraine. We have taken up the problem from its very beginning nearly 2,000 years ago and have at last given a name to the killers and maniacs who do this against nations almost as a religious duty.

    Most recent massacre??? Oh you mean the OSS/CIA plot that tried to get the double agent Dalai Lama and his clique to revolt against the CPC??? That wasn’t a massacre. It was an insurrection that was put down. Many of the serfs were glad because they finally got rid of their overlords who fled into India. But all of that talk is psyops. The KMT governed Republic of China was/is (on Taiwan now) a U.S. ally and so in US Army WW 2 propaganda film “why we fight” (not sure if still on YouTube) it was clearly stated Tibet was part of China. US WW2 stamps to support China show Tibet as part of China. All psyops since the CPC pushed the KMT to Taiwan

    They don’t understand the concept of “in kind”. They believe they are special and exceptional. They don’t realize the Global South refuses to condemn Russia because they experienced or witnessed aggression by NATO nations. So they actually want Russia to push back. That’s why even the nations that voted to condemn the war – refuse to join in sanctions against Russia. They don’t even get it.

    What a crock of shit! Whatever else he maybe, if anyone belongs in Tibet it’s he and not the Chinese.

    And if China can invade Tibet to rid off Tibetans, so can America to get rid off the Chinese. I am certain the ‘Quad’ would not only welcome but most likely join in the exercise to take down China a peg or two by US.

    Taiwan may belong to China (it would be up to the Taiwanese people to decide) but Tibet and East Turkmenistan do not and a time will come soon enough when the Chinese will have to walk back, literally, to the Han territories.

    Dalai Lamas had to be approved by the emperor in Beijing. So no – Tibet was not independent for many centuries. As noted – they attacked China – and Mongol dynasties. They lost. East Turkmenistan is an invention of the Soviet Union. Ironically the Uighurs were allowed to settle there by the Tang Dynasty to fight against the Tibetans and Mongols who wanted parts of Tang territory. You should read more. And the Han in Taiwan claim both of those as part of the Republic of China. Again those are the Us allied Chinese. Go figure

    Speaking of Mongolia, sandwiched between America’s two biggest rivals, Navy Admiral Timothy Keating, Commander, US Pacific Command recently told the media, “They’re in, of course, a strategically critical spot for us, with Russia to the north and China in the south. They have some marvelous natural resources upon which they intend to capitalize. So they’re a good partner of ours, they’re good friends, and we enjoy working closely with them.”

    In August of this year the sixth annual Khaan Quest 2009 multinational military exercises were held there, jointly run by the Mongolian Armed Forces and the US Pacific Command under the Global Peace Initiative program, at the Five Hills Training Camp, 60 km west of Ulaanbaatar. Over 700 military personnel from Mongolia, US, India, South Korea, and Cambodia took part in the war games.

    The non-whites are “walking back to” their territory in North America. The whites call them “illegal immigrants”, as if they themselves were ever legal immigrants!

    The non-whites are ALSO “walking back to” white territories in Europe– the lands of the thugs who had wronged them. It is mainly the Muslims who are doing so. And why NOT? It has been done in the East. Han China is now keeping those who had wronged it in the past– the Tibetans, Mongols, Manchus, etc– under tight control. In 50 more years, the Muslims might be able to achieve the same in Europe.

    “the more dynamic East and the Global South”

    LOL China “dynamic”? They do have a high production rate, because they have countless millions willing to work for low pay. That does not mean innovation, which they get only by stealing from the West. They also have a huge Keynesian scheme with banks lending money to produce an enormous housing bubble, entire cities full of empty buildings built as speculation.

    As for the Third World countries they don’t innovate and barely produce, and need Western technology, Western inventions, and Western businesses daily. Ethiopian “innovation” is to illegally copy Nike and other brands, and plaster the names of Western hotels and restaurants on their own. There can never be a successful domestic brand in Ethiopia as it would be immediately copied by others, who would then get the profits with their own shoddier products.

    “Japan, South Korea, both occupied by U.S. troops and hence not sovereign”

    Okay, John Walsh is doing that typical thing: Take some fact and use it as “proof” of some ideological point. The point is usually about how terrible, terrible the situation is. Imagine claiming that Japan and South Korea are occupied, just because they house military bases. Of which almost all the ones in Japan are on the small Okinawa island, halfway to Taiwan.

    So, Johnny, you think that those countries can’t elect a president the U.S. doesn’t like because they are controlled by those U.S. military bases? The American soldiers in Okinawa “occupy” Japan. Hilarious!

    Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa do not belong to you whities and a time will come soon enough when you will return the land you’re squatting on back to its rightful owners, and you whities will have to walk back, literally, to Europe.

    Or maybe the rest of us will simply breed you out of existence by impregnating your women, as they seem to prefer colored men these days. Remember that your white genes are the weaker ones — just one drop of color and your babies become cute little mulattos.
