Closing the circle, completing Gestalt, opening a new chapter – any simile you like, but choosing 9/11 for inauguration day calls for a heavy-duty sense of humour. This is what the Taliban decided. Their new government, the first in 20 years to rule from Kabul, will be inaugurated on 9/11. They decided to troll Uncle Sam. In addition to choosing this auspicious date, the Talibs staffed top positions in the interim government with Gitmo graduates, while the Interior Minister has a \$5 million bounty on his head offered by the US. These are the leaders every country should be proud to be led by. The Russians and the Chinese promised to attend the inauguration at ambassadorial level. Even better, the Russians and the Chinese refused to attend a West-led conference on Afghanistan. We need less harmony and less agreement so the word ‘freedom’ retains some meaning.

Just a few days ago the Taliban succeeded in subduing the last sizeable enclave controlled by warlords: Panjshir gorge, a mountain valley in the spurs of the Hindu Kush, a hard-to-get-in place (getting out is even harder), populated by Tajik and other ethnics, it was a natural place to excite tribal enmity against the predominantly Pashto Taliban. With luck, Panjshir could be used to block the road to Mazar-i-Sharif, to cut off the North and the possibility of rekindling civil war.

Two people stood behind this effort; the former vice-president, Amrullah Saleh, and the son of the Northern warlord Ahmad Massoud. Saleh called himself the “legitimate head” of Afghanistan – after the shameful flight of President Ghani, he felt he was entitled to inherit the country. Saleh was closely associated with the CIA, according to American sources.

Massoud Jr. studied in England; he is advised by BHL (Bernard-Henri Lévy), the French-Jewish provocateur and adventurer, the master of discourse who always comes before the storm. (Victor Pelevin drew on BHL in his novel S.N.U.F.F. Yes, it is Pelevin’s world!) Massoud called his gang “Resistance forces”; for sure it was a BHL idea. As with every good Jew, BHL is forever doomed to live and re-live WWII, and what could be better than La Resistance, something straight from Casablanca?

The Washington Post published the appeal of Massoud to Americans to support him with money and arms in the name of “democracy and human rights”. The Neocons were delighted. A chance had dawned for renewed strife in the country. Massoud and Saleh walked out of the Taliban’s proposed reconciliation plan. They thought that the Taliban wouldn’t dare to enter their mountain area, but they miscalculated. On Monday, September 6, the Taliban took the valley; Saleh allegedly has fled to Tajikistan. Massoud Jr. escaped to a nook in the high mountains and promised to be back. Will he return?

British journalists sympathetic to Massoud believe that he has no chance after this defeat. He can talk about his will to win and his determination to keep on fighting, but he has fewer than a hundred fighters with him, and no sign of mass support. He is capable of a sortie, of an ambush, but he is not a serious threat to the Taliban; at least for now. We shall hear of him as we do of another Guaido; many Afghan embassies in the world said they recognise and represent Saleh. But without actual control of land, this thing will mean nothing beyond an excuse to loot some Afghan assets.

Massoud and Saleh have repeated the mistake of Ashraf Ghani, the former president. They thought they could keep negotiating for a long while and improve their hand at the same time; eventually they would get better terms. It turned out that the Taliban were not inclined to haggle. They offered yesterday’s enemy to join their ranks; a generous offer, but on condition of their deferring to Taliban supreme command. Massoud hoped to retain full autonomy, but that was an empty dream.

Everybody wants the Taliban to form a broad government coalition in Afghanistan; a government to include representation of Tajik, Uzbek and other ethnic groups. It seems that this idea is acceptable for the Taliban as well. But they do not want to grant broad autonomy to these groups and give them a chance to secede. Cohesive ethnic autonomous regions spell trouble. They undermined the USSR; threaten Spain and the United Kingdom, while France prospers without granting autonomy to Catalan, Breton etc.

So, while the idea of inclusive government is a good one, let the Afghans sort it out among themselves, without Western interference. The West had 20 years to form governments in Afghanistan, now it is the Afghans turn. Yesterday’s occupiers claim moral superiority and tell liberated people how they should form a government based on Western ideas. It is hypocritical BS as always. If they value ethnic inclusivity so much, let them convince the Jews to give equal rights and an equal number of government portfolios to Palestinians. If they value ideological inclusivity, let them share power with big parties, with Le Pen in France, with the AfD in Germany, with Trump in the US. Oh, it is easier to advise than to do.

Despite their brilliant military victory, the Taliban will have difficult time with the US-trained viragos who already marching on the streets of Kabul as their sisters and mentors did in Washington in January 2017. This gender mischief is the biggest damage caused by the US to the world fabric. Hopefully, equipped with their tradition and sharia justice, the Afghan Talibs will manage better than the US Deplorables. Ferocious Lesbians are a hardy enemy, as Western white men have been thoroughly cowed and unable to resist them.

While preparing for 9/11 commemorations, you should read an excellent long piece by Ron Unz written especially for this occasion, and/or a short piece I wrote and published 20 years ago. Unz says Mossad did it; I am reluctant to give Mossad this credit. Whoever did the attack on 2001, Sep 11, enacted an audacious deed and brought much pleasure to the world abused by the US. The vast majority of mankind enjoyed seeing their abusers being hit. Yes, the consequence of 9/11, the War on Terror, was horrible, but the same culprits could do it with a smaller pretext, or no pretext whatsoever. Yes, the official story of 9/11 was implausible, but not more implausible than Covid-19.

Like the Four Riders of the Apocalypse, the unknown kamikaze rode their giant crafts into the two visible symbols of American world domination, Wall Street and the Pentagon. They vanished in flames and smoke, and we do not yet know who they were. They could be practically anybody:

American Nationalists, American Communists, American Fundamentalist Christians, American Anarchists, anybody who rejects the twin gods of the dollar and the M-16, who hates the stock market and interventions overseas, who dreams of America for Americans, who does not want to support the drive for world domination. They could be Native Americans returning to Manhattan, or Afro-Americans who still have not received compensation for slavery.

ORDER IT NOW

They could be foreigners of practically any extraction, as Wall Street and the Pentagon ruined many lives of people all over the globe. Germans can remember the fiery holocaust of Dresden with its hundreds of thousands of peaceful refugees incinerated by the US Air Force. Japanese will not forget the nuclear holocaust of Hiroshima. The Arab world still feels the creeping holocaust of Iraq and Palestine. Russians and East Europeans feel the shame of Belgrade avenged. Latin Americans think of American invasions of Panama and Granada, of destroyed Nicaragua and defoliated Colombia. Asians count their dead of Vietnam war, Cambodia bombings, Laos CIA operations in millions. Even a pro-American, Russian TV broadcaster could not refrain from saying, ‘now Americans begin to understand the feelings of Baghdad and Belgrade’.

The Riders could be anybody who lost his house to the bank, who was squeezed from his work and made permanently unemployed, who was declared an Untermensch by the new Herrenvolk. They could be Russians, Malaysians, Mexicans, Indonesians, Pakistanis, Congolese, Brazilians, Vietnamese, as their economy was destroyed by Wall Street and the Pentagon. They could be anybody, and they are everybody. Their identity is quite irrelevant as their message is more important than their personalities, and their message is read loud and clear in the choice of targets.

If I were a Muslim, I’d prefer to ascribe 9/11 to Muslim heroes rather than to Jewish tricksters. It is basically a question whether you approve of the deed. If you do, or at least tolerate it, you can say it was done by brave Muslims. If you do not approve of it, you may think it was done by Mossad agents who anyway are doing all sorts of awful things. Truth is important; but narrative is precious.

Golden Oldies

Is Elvis back? After Abba’s return I wouldn’t be surprised. It seems they try and squeeze the last drop of creativity from the departing generation, for the new generation has none. The most prominent film 2021 is a remake of Dune, the David Lynch’s 1984 film. The remake costs many times more than the original, but it is still the most boring film of the year. Other recent films are really old movies brushed up like Escape from New York, or old movies revamped by the woke canon, with Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother played by a black gay man (!) The Abba song Don’t Shut Me Down, implies the old singers have come back as computer design:

But in the shape and form I appear now I have learned to cope…
And now you see another me, I’ve been reloaded, that’s been decoded
I’m fired up, I’m hot, don’t shut me down
I’m not the one you knew
I’m asking you to have an open mind

This is certainly not a song about humans; we humans do not reload, decoded, fired up or shut down. All these words pertain to the computer world, or to some admixture of a man and a machine. This song will be the anthem of trans-humanity, a Swedish friend told me; and he added with more than a touch of pride that little Sweden provided the avatars for two of the most prominent ideological movements, Greta for Green and Abba for trans-human.

Now the super-rich are reaching for immortality, we are told in a longish piece in the Technology Review on Altos Labs, a secretive and extremely well funded institute in Silicon Valley. Apparently, Jeff Bezos and Yuri Milner want to live forever; these rich bastards think they are so precious to God, Mankind and Universe that they should be kept in play after all others return to the Creator. I am not aware of a single redeeming feature possessed by these two men. Yes, they hog a lot of other men’s resources, but they didn’t advance mankind by a single inch. They didn’t write a poem, they didn’t paint a picture, they didn’t invent; they didn’t commit a heroic act of sacrifice, they aren’t handsome; they did nothing for what the gods would share their table and goddesses – their beds; or grant immortality, indeed. They just hoarded money. And with this money they want to buy time off us.

These guys should be burned at the stake in the Central Park for the temerity of their enterprise: of stealing and robbing millions of working men of their labour’s fruit, of their life – to live longer. Back to the coffin, you gruesome zombies! For that is what they are – undead. Instead of immortality, these people promote endless clinging to the vestiges of life, instead of a normal, ‘A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever’ (Eccl 1:4) sort of thing.

Terry Pratchett in his Discworld novel Reaper Man imagined the world where Death had been retired, and it’s a mess. But this mess is normal in comparison to the two-tier system envisaged by trans-humanism: everybody dies, but some rich bastards live forever. To me, it is an advertisement for the prompt return of death penalty for the hoarders.

The problem is, though there are very few people who are likely to benefit from this development, they are also very rich. They want to live forever, something we Christians get for free, but they prefer to rely upon science. I wrote about this tendency recently, and now Victor Pelevin had published an entertaining satirical book last week, called Transhumanism INC.

For those who do not know who I talk of: Pelevin is probably the most important living Russian writer, a 21st century Voltaire, of sorts. He is an enigma, for nobody has sighted him for the last ten years, though he produces a book a year, and invariably publishes it at the beginning of September. His early books were translated and published in the West, especially for their anti-Soviet flair. Later on, he attacked (or laughed at) the Western mainstream agenda, and they stopped publishing him in English, while his books are printed in their millions of copies for politically incorrect Russian readers. An Unz reader would enjoy his satirical writing. Pelevin has a take on Wikileaks and Afghanistan (The Anti-Aircraft Codes of Al Efesbi); on human rights as a pretext for bombing (S.N.U.F.F.); gender roles and diversity (IPhuck 10); political correctness as a GRU plot against American society (The Art of Light Touches); and now Transhumanism.

ORDER IT NOW

The story takes place three hundred years from now; the top people in the world have discarded their bodies and moved their brains to be kept and serviced forever by Transhumanism Inc while they enjoy digitally induced paradisiac delights. Every human has a brain implant and is guided by AI. Dirty work is done by cloned slaves who are all White to conform to BLM ideas. By law, slaves must always wear a mask on their face, regardless of the epidemiological situation. The slaves themselves did not get sick, but they spread viruses asymptomatically . There is practically no sex, as we know it: women prefer to sodomise their male partners taking revenge for the patriarchy. The Green agenda has won; there are no cars, just chip-implanted horses and carriages. Electricity is expensive and people get by with kerosene lamps.

The Transhumanism Inc has a subsidiary Open Mind that deals with people’s minds. Open Mind is an enhanced Facebook you can’t get away from, or Google Smart Glasses you can’t take off. When you look at a person or a building, or listen to a song, Open Mind suggests to you the correct reaction, the proper assessment. A banker’s daughter looks delightful, a popular song sounds popular, if the creators paid for the advertising. Thus human responses are kept under control. This system coexists with local politics. Russia in the novel has a quasi-Communist-Nationalist government that has access to the implant, as well, but the vast majority of responses are determined by the market, that is by Transhumanism Inc. The big Communist-Nationalist Russian leader, a Putin on steroids, also has his brain stored away, next to the brain of Sheikh Ahmed, the leader of World Jihad.

It is not too different from what we have today. Governments differ, parties differ, from Putin to Modi to Biden to Merkel, but human responses and the agenda are quite similar all over the world, be it covid or climate, privatisation or transgender. Where they are not so similar they are moving towards this similarity. In the sad world of Transhumanism, the leaders succumbed to the supreme temptation of living forever in paradise while keeping in touch with their countries. Their brains (placed in jars) stand on a shelf in a well-protected cellar in London, or in Nevada, but at a moment’ notice they can connect to their assistants (like in the film Avatar) and interact with lesser folk.

In our world, we have Zuckerberg, the man who decides what we may and may not say and read. In Pelevin’s world, it is Goldenstern (sic!) whose name is taboo, unless preceded by the epithet Fair. Fair Goldenstern is ok; otherwise your account will be limited. Goldenstern is considered to be a Jew, for sure. The whole system works in the interests of vampire-like creatures that feast on human energy, thought and creativity.

And though the book is a fiction, or even a fantasy; when I look at today’s art, cinema, music I feel that human creativity had been sucked out and human energy has been limited to making profit; while the politicians all appear very different but their brains could stand on the same shelf in the same cellar and even take their commands from the same super-vampire.

    The Anglo-Zionists perpetrated 9/11 treason against the US, and then used that act of treachery to lie America into a series of Mideast wars, all to profit the ruling elite, insiders, their cronies and their imperial lackeys.

    Literally no one is cheering for them at this point except the imperial cabal, cheering for itself.

    BHL as ‘provocateur and adventurer’?

    Guess that’s Mr Shamir’s very polite way of saying, ‘war-mongering zionist’.

    (I’d add ‘asshole’ to the ‘war-mongering zionist’ description, but Israel would never say such things, being a gentleman……. )

    ‘Pride’?

    How could a person have pride in a country that, from many outward appearances, is going down the tubes faster than a turd soaked in mineral oil? Immigration horrors; endlessly kissing NAZOs butt as to Russia; Greta and the anti-human Green Revolution; embracing wokeness; and now celebrating the idiocies of transhumanism via the soaring mediocrity of an aging, long-expired ABBA?

    Well, at least their Covid policy has taken a turn for some measure of sanity:

    Well, it certainly would be just terrible if Jeff Bozos and Yuri Milker were to, in their selfish crusade for everlasting life, accidentally have the consciousness of each trapped in their own private endless void, an infinite expanse of emptiness, completely and utterly alone for an eternity of their own makings.

    A Rebellious People

    8 Now go, write it before them on a tablet,
    And note it on a scroll,
    That it may be for time to come,
    Forever and ever:
    9 That this is a rebellious people,
    Lying children,
    Children who will not hear the law of the Lord;
    10 Who say to the seers, “Do not see,”
    And to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us right things;
    Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits.
    11 Get out of the way,
    Turn aside from the path,
    Cause the Holy One of Israel
    To cease from before us.”

    12 Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel:

    “Because you despise this word,
    And trust in oppression and perversity,
    And rely on them,
    13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you
    Like a breach ready to fall,
    A bulge in a high wall,
    Whose breaking comes suddenly, in an instant.
    14 And He shall break it like the breaking of the potter’s vessel,
    Which is broken in pieces;
    He shall not spare.

    25 There will be on every high mountain
    And on every high hill
    Rivers and streams of waters,
    In the day of the great slaughter,
    When the towers fall.

    Israel Shamir,

    There’s a little known book from the American-Australian professor Hiram Caton, written in 1986 – called “The Humanist Experiment: Superman from a Test Tube ”

    Back then, it seemed eugenics was not such a taboo or at least academia were able to discuss it more freely. The author explains how and why many powerful people and organisations started a huge international inititive aimed at population reduction.

    I beleive it has to do with the current situation – the generation of academics and politicians that started the process is gone, but the ideas are still here and many people with money and power follow them.

Further expanding on alternate realities, even the date (((9+11 = 20 year war))) proves we were trolled by the demonic Wondering Tribe of the Holocaust, a mysterious GlobalHomo cabal of assassin’s, launching toxic weapons into the lands of the living, spreading death and destruction to every man, woman and child, while hiding behind our names and culture until it’s time to unleash Armageddon in a never ending cycle of scorched earth operations for the benefit of the chosen.

  15. Truth is important; but narrative is precious.

    No, Truth trumps narrative. Jews were all over 9/11. Mossad was involved. The US was swarming with “israeli” spies and “is” offence force explosives experts. The US government was infested with Jews and “duel” citizens loyal to a foreign power.

    Yes, it would have been nice if Muslims, or the French, or anyone had poked the US in the eye, but the truth is that PNAC and “israel” done it. And wasn’t Larry Silverstein lucky!

    for two of the most prominent ideological movements, Greta for Green and Abba for trans-human

    “Trans-human” doesn’t even exist, it is a Potemkin idea out of sci-fi where it argubale can be used to discuss philosophical ideas, as any story by Greg Egan shows.

    It’s even faker than “trans-sexual”.

    Whether GRABBA has been re-animated in life-like graphics in a computer gameworld by a team of dedicated workers has no bearing on trans-humanism. It just says that life-like graphics are now pretty good.

    Come back when you have enough computational capacity to simulate a biological system (hint: a single natural neuron takes about 1000 artificial neurons to simulate it as baseline and I’m not even discussing the energy use of this exercise).

    Apparently, Jeff Bezos and Yuri Milner want to live forever; these rich bastards think they are so precious to God, Mankind and Universe that they should be kept in play after all others return to the Creator. I am not aware of a single redeeming feature possessed by these two men.

    There’s mainly something illuminating about the author in there.

    I don’t know about Milner except that he finances weird “breakthrough prizes in physics” which leads precisely nowhere, but at least Bezos has made sure that I can actually get the book I want (even the second-hand ones that are no longer in print). And that’s not even his big ticket item, which is AWS, which makes sure that I can actually run a big program easily on machines that I don’t have to buy and don’t have to rely for spare capacity at the local university or wherever. Yep, this advances mankind, deal with it. So there is that.

    @Mustapha Mond

    It has always seemed to me – at least since I took a few minutes to think it through – that anyone who wants to live forever is in utter denial of his or her nature.

    You cannot understand the human mind without studying the brain; nor the brain in detachment from the nervous system as a whole; nor the nervous system except as a vital, organic part of the body; nor the human organism except in the context of the biosphere and the world at large.

    Consider how much time and attention most of us give to abstract thought or aesthetics, compared to the basics of life: eating, drinking, sleeping, sex, sport, competition of all kinds, even bodily health. Cut off from all that, what would we find to think about? It would be like a modified form of the “black room” torture.

    Yet those people seem to think they can snip off their “minds” from everything else, and still find some value in survival. The wonderful, urbane, sane Alan Watts was said to have taken to drink because he didn’t like himself when he was sober. How many of us feel with him! What would it be like to have to live with our faults and frailties, our embarrassing weaknesses, for century after century? Yet even after a billion years, eternity has not even begun…

  24. They want to live forever, something we Christians get for free

    The gotcha is that you have to die first. Either that or I don’t travel in circles populated by fifteen hundred year old friends o’ Jeebus.

    Successful radical life extension would usher in the end of civilization. The privilege of evading death for decades would of course be available only to the most wealthy. They already fear and hate the rest of us, would not deem us worthy to continue to clutter up their world beyond their need to exploit our labor to produce their wealth. For a time their Myrmidons would continue to protect them, but once their hired guards find out their masters’ secret, they too will demand long life as the ultimate payment for their loyalty. When word leaks out to the public that they are being cheated out of the most precious commodity there is, extra years of life, they may finally realize en masse that they really do have nothing to lose but their chains, and that will be all she wrote for complex social organization.

    Best Russian film on YouTube is “The Master and Margarita”–film version of Bulgakov’s great satirical novel published in 1967. The film is probably the best thing on YouTube right now, after Sergey Bondarchuk’s “War and Peace,” which YouTube is showing with English subtitles in Mosfilm’s newly restored version.

  30. Could the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and the chaotic way in which it was done just in time for the anniversary of 911 have been done da as to reinforce the lie that a bunch of medieval Muslim cavemen caught all those US intelligence agencies unawares and brought down the twin towers, as after all another bunch of similar Muslim ragheads had just taken Kabul by surprise to the astonishment of US military intelligence and kicked out a leading superpower? So they can wind up their propaganda for the anniversary to the maximum and cover up for the real culprits, still keeping the public in the dark as regards the truth. Could it be, the real reason behind the “unexpected” most recent events at Kabul? Could it? Or could they also be covering up and/or distracting from something else big? Doubting minds want to know.

  31. The nimrods are too stupid to troll Uncle Sam. It’s their handlers who are instructing them — namely Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

    It’s not the first time they’ll troll per their instructions and it won’t be the last. That pic that was reminiscent of Iwo Jima was trolling as was the use of the term Red Line in reference to the August 30th date for final withdrawal.

    The joke will ultimately be on the Taliban and on Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. In thirty years, the land that was previously referred to as Pakistan and Afghanistan will be China. Those rare earth elements will belong to China and if that means every last Muslim in Pakistan and Afghanistan must be eliminated, that’s what it means. China will have those rare earth elements. It’s existential and in an existential battle, China will prevail. It has so many bodies to throw at the endeavor.

    [Massoud Jr. studied in England; he is advised by BHL (Bernard-Henri Lévy), the French-Jewish provocateur and adventurer, the master of discourse who always comes before the storm.]

    Bernard Henri Levy, BHL, a zionist warmonger has been called FRAUD by European philosophers and others. He is the enforcer of the Oded Yinon project to benefit the zionist EXPANSIONIST policy.

    While he is promoting and supporting the Israel nationalist policies, he was against serbian nationalist policies during the 1990s Balkan wars and supported the war and partition of Yugoslavia.
    BHL is supporting expansion of Israel on the stolen land of Palestine, but pushing for partition
    everywhere else including Sudan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, Turkey, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran and other places for the interest of Jewish mafia and Israel.

    While he is against Palestinian national interest he is promoting the Kurdish terrorism in order to partition the regional states in the middle East to erect a second Israel in the region as an ally of apartheid entity against the interests of many countries.
    The Kurds are terrorizing the regional states on behalf of their masters, zionism and imperialism. The terrorist kurds have been spying for Israel since 1950s.

    BHL was in Belgrade in 1917 to promote the terrorist kurd as good terrorists fighting against US/Israel
    proxy terrorists, ISIS, but the Serbs attacked him with a creme pie on his face and forced him to leave the hall. They shouted get out, and this coward did.

    Unfortunately, this zionist pro terrorists is invited by the Public libraries in the US to spread his lies.
    The Public Libraries are another propaganda center in the interest of the zionist mass murderers and most of the people who attend and support this zionist are from the Tribe itself.

    Now, this coward is trying to bring a CIVIL WAR to Afghanistan because the Jewish mafia all over the west are very angry that US has left Afghanistan without toppling Iranian government. BHL and other fifth columns, including Iran, are tearing themselves apart in support of Ahmad Massoud, a fool who is led by a criminal zionist pro partition BHL. Don’t be a full.

    No civil war should be allowed in Afghanistan. The mafia is pushing for civil war, using a fool Ahmad Massoud to achieve their goal. Pashtun is 42% of the population where Tajik is over 20 percent of the population, the largest minority. Majority in Panjshir are Tajiks. The Tajik, Hazaras (majority are shiites) and Uzbeck have LEGITIMATE grievances against the Pashtun Taliban.

    Taliban must be smart enough to include other minorities, Tajik and Uzbeck, in the government to neutralize the zionist project and its extension, Iran fifth column, in Afghanistan, meaning CIVIL WAR. No one wants civil war in Afghanistan except the mafia and US.

    Russian shows are reaching the same level of technical proficiency and aren’t running insults to the intelligence of the viewer. (Or, maybe Hollywood isn’t actually insulting the intelligence of the viewer, and instead is just pandering to what they know to be the IQ of their audiences?)

    “the fiery holocaust of Dresden with its hundreds of thousands of peaceful refugees incinerated by the US Air Force”

    taking issue with the number — “hundreds of thousands” — but not with the statement that the “incinerated” were “peaceful refugees.”

    Based on the experience of zionist Jews who bombed USS Liberty then strafed the survivors — the equivalent of “peaceful refugees,” your position puts you squarely in the zionist Jew camp: buncha scum murderers that thrive on killing the innocent and defenseless.

    [MORE]

    You wrote:

    “Anyway, the buggers were still bombing London and Antwerp.”

    Not technically. As wikipedia is my witness, Luftwaffe carried out retaliatory raids (with desultory if not counterproductive results) on London “from January to May 1944.”
    nota bene: German raids on London were in retaliation to the much more lethal attacks that deliberately targeted German civilians.
    Dresden was attacked Feb. 13 – 15, 1945.
    By that time, Feb. 1945, German air-power was a spent force, as the Allies well knew. See comment above: Allies were a buncha scum murderers that thrived on killing the innocent and defenseless.

    You wrote:

    “If you don’t want to lose a war, don’t start it.”

    O dearieme. US declared war on Japan after the attack on Pearl Harbor, an attack that FDR provoked, in his eagerness to engage the US in war against Germany.
    Zionist Jews in US and in London had been maneuvering for at least six years to create a situation in which US would wage war on Germany, and Germany would have to engage in warfare to enforce its sovereignty and to defend itself.

    Just as the economic war US has waged against Iran (since 1995, legislation written by AIPAC) with the goal of so weakening Iran that its people would revolt and the government would collapse, so “International Jewry” declared economic war on Germany in March, 1933.
    Someone on Reddit (iirc) constructed a timeline ostensibly showing that Germany initiated ‘threats’ to Jews that precipitated the Jewish boycott, but that timeline does not take account of Louis Brandies’s directive to Rabbi Stephen Wise, on Feb. 14, 1933, that “all German Jews leave Germany;” nor of the psychological warfare character of the Jewish boycott as Edwin Black explained in The Transfer Agreement. Namely, the German people had present memory of the starvation blockade that had killed 800,000 German citizens, as well as fear — appropriate, as it turned out — of the power of International Jewry.
    In short, Jews started the war against Germany, and they persisted in the Economic war from Mar. 1933 until the death of its leading protagonist, Samuel Untermeyer in 1940. Siege warfare is warfare. Jews started it, not Germans.

    Furthermore, Germany declared war on United States after US declared war on Germany’s ally, Japan. That’s how alliances work.

    You wrote:

    “Don’t march on Moscow.”

    As I understand the history, the German people and their leaders were keenly, painfully aware of Bolshevik Moscow’s murderous actions against its own people, and also tired of enduring Bolshevik Communist agitation in their own nation: it was a stated goal of Bolshevik Communist (“Moscow”) leaders to ‘turn Germany Red’ and make it the poster-child for International Communism.

    [25 000 dead innocents in Dresden] is only 8 times more than 9/11 casualties)))

    Therefore — ?

    SOME people, relatively few, I believe, are aware of the firebombing of Dresden.

    But that dastardly deed was just the finale to a deliberate pattern of firebombing German cities, of which even fewer are aware. (I wish I were not aware of what Allies did to German civilians. It challenges my resolve not to Hate.)

    According to Jörg Friedrich in The Fire,
    https://www.chron.com/life/books/article/The-Fire-by-Jorg-Friedrich-1583074.php

    Between 1940 and 1945 more than half a million German civilians perished as the Allies mounted an increasingly coordinated and deadly air offensive designed to break not only Germany’s ability to fight but also the will of her people to do so.

    Friedrich chronicles not only the 131 German cities that were reduced to rubble — some were bombed multiple times — but also the psychological element of the attacks, in which cities were leafletted before they were attacked, the people told that the choice was theirs: rebel against their government or be killed by firebombs.

    I do not recall the name of the installation where the British practiced and perfected firebombing raids on civilians, but German Village still stands in the Utah desert at Dugway. The United States Department of Interior has cataloged the site in its Historic American Engineering Record (HAER). The Dugway HAER records that:
    Erich Mendelsohn, “the Jewish architect,” and his colleagues at Harvard collaborated with Standard Oil and USAF, as well as with set-designers of (Jewish-led) Hollywood studios to build replicas of German workers’ dwellings in order to perfect means of creating firestorms that would not only incinerate the building and its inhabitants but consume the entire city.
    So deliberate was the intention to kill Germans that:

    [T]he German test structure was erected to accommodate aerial bombing from as high as 20,000 feet, . . . Bombers had to drop a large number of small incendiaries so that individual rooms within apartment blocks were set ablaze through the attic floor, thus not allowing a fire to be contained by the multiple firewalls. . . .

    19 pieces of furniture. . . completed the mock up of the second floor flats. Furniture included . . .
    In the bedroom,the single beds were placed together in pairs, with a crib adjacent, reflective of a young family with an infant.

    FDR had acquired the property at Dugway early in 1938 and intended to use it to research chemical weaponry. German Village was built beginning in 1942, at a time when it was known that the German military power was a spent force.

    If you like Solzhenitsyn, remember that he debunks the Holodomor nonsense (the claim that Ukies were specifically targeted). And Suvorov wasn’t really writing history. He just argued a theory for whatever reason… maybe just to look cool, like you correctly diagnosed the gratuitous vituperation from Griffins. Because I agree with all your comments about Biden. If the old bastard can do something good at last, good on him. Let’s hope he isn’t just redeploying.

    That Communists stirred up mobs in Germany and agitated in numerous ways in an attempt to turn Germany into a Communist state is a fact of history.

    This site is loaded with commentary on the concern of Americans that America is being turned into a “Communist” or “Socialist” or “Chinese Communist” or “Zionist occupied” nation. Corvinus, for one, persistently taunts commenters, “What are you DOING about it?”
    Some say, When it gets bad enough, there will be a civil war.
    It’s happened to the best of nations.

    The combination of: Germans being aware of the murderous-genocidal proclivities of their International Communist next-door neighbor; the reality that said next-door neighbors placed provocateurs in Germany who were causing riots, some of which led to deaths of German people — didn’t our dear leader just inform the nation that the duty of government is to protect its people?

    NSDAP chose to protect Germany by using what Breitman & Lichtman termed “semi-legal” means

    When US, Britain & France & Plland pushed Germany too far, war was the response.
    NSDAP offered to negotiate on more than favorable terms multiple times.

    Putin (and Lavrov) have amazing diplomatic skills. But your analogy is not quite apt.

    A more appropriate analogy would compare US invasion of Afghanistan for its non-crime of owning the soil on which alleged perps of 9/11 huddled to German attack on Bolshevik Russia in order to, as Herbert Hoover claims Hitler insisted, in order to vanquish Bolshevism. [see Hoover, Freedom Betrayed .

    I’ll not regurgitate the thousands of words about the falsity of the claim that “Arabs” hijacked planes & flew them into WTC; or the specious claim that Afghanistan — 6,917 miles from Washington, DC — was somehow a threat to the United States. In contrast, Germany was a relatively small state right next door to a neighbor that was, in fact, acting in a genocidal fashion and seemed to have the intent as well as the ability to bring that murderous activity into Germany.

    You wrote:

    “{German leadership objected to this assault on German sovereignty and took steps to curtail it.}

    You are being disingenuous: Nazi German leadership invaded USSR in order to ethnically cleanse – work to death, starve to death, mass murder,.. – all the Slavic peoples West of the Urals, and then repopulate those emptied Slavic lands with Germanic peoples. Or maybe Hitler writing about Lebensraum in Mein Kampf in 1925 was a fake?

    Funny thing: word search for “Lebensraum” in my 1925 Mein Kampf produces ZERO hits.

    I’m acquainted with Generalplan Ost.
    I’m also aware that Hitler was extraordinarily concerned with ensuring that Never Again would the German people be starved into submission, as happened in WWI and in the period of Versailles negotiations. Given that large amounts of territory that Germany needed to feed its people was sundered from Germany at Versailles, yes, I agree that NSDAP sought to acquire land enough to feed its people, and that was sheltered from British ability to place that land under siege.

    That “Nazi leadership” intended to “ethnically cleanse all Slavic peoples . . .”
    — Pardon my geography deficits: to the best of my knowledge Ukraine is West of the Urals. Also to the best of my knowledge, Ukrainians welcomed German soldiers as saviors from Bolshevik tyranny, and the two groups got along well for about a year, German troops sharing their food with Ukrainians. If it was their intent to kill them all, they went about it in a strange way.

    I am neither a patriotic German nor of German ancestry (except by marriage).
    What was done to the German people happened well before Soros made his billions, and also well before Muslims were unleashed upon Germany –by the same people who destroyed Germany, body and soul, in the wars era and the psychological war executed on the German people 1945 – 1950 +; namely, Anglo-Zionists.

    I think the Allies committed crimes of hitherto unimagined magnitude against the German people; that they deserve justice; and that allowing the perpetrators of such crimes against humanity to remain unaccountable has deformed the character and soul of the Allies even more than the Germans were harmed.

    This statement:

    And, finally, I tell this to all Hitler and Nazi apologists:

    What do you tell to defense attorneys?
    What do you tell to people who view this image as an ideal?What would you tell to an Afghani family whose house has been destroyed and children killed by a US drone?

    People still died in the Holodomor. I like Solzhenitsyn very much, but I know next to nothing about Russia. I like certain values he expressed; I believe he intended well in his writing. Anyway, my motive should be obvious, but I also want to argue truth. So, if I’m wrong, I do wish to be corrected.

    Another strategy of removing this guilt is to highlight how many millions of Arabs have died, not counting the ones who have been injured and displaced, in wars that seem primarily for Israel’s interests. Maybe US greed would lead to a war somewhere else instead, were it not for Israel. Israel isn’t the sole motive behind US wars, but would they happen without that influence?

    Here’s one comment of his:

    Or was it simply because of indifference? Why, this is almost inconceivable: 15 million peasants were not simply deprived of entering the institutes of higher learning or of the right to study in graduate school, or to occupy nice posts — no! They were dispossessed and driven like cattle out of their homes and sent to certain death in the taiga and tundra. And the Jews, among other passionate urban activists, enthusiastically took the reins of the collectivization into their hands, leaving behind them persistent evil memory. And who had raised their voices in defense of the peasants then? And now, in 1932-33, in Russia and Ukraine – on the very outskirts of Europe, five to six million people died from hunger! And the free press of the free world maintained utter silence… And even if we take into account the extreme Leftist bias of the contemporary Western press and its devotion to the socialist “experiment” in the
    USSR, it is still impossible not to be amazed at the degree to which they could go to be blind
    and insensitive to the sufferings of even tens of millions of fellow humans.

    And although the famine was a direct result of Stalin’s policy, and not only in Ukraine (it brutally
    swept across the Volga Region and the Urals), the suspicion widely arose among Ukrainians
    that the entire Ukrainian famine was the work of the Jews.

    Maybe those aren’t the best quotes, but he writes a lot on such things.

    His comments on Stalin, Jews, and Trotsky are especially interesting. The book is a treasure, especially if it’s accurate, to the extent we can know such truth.

    [DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The U.S. has removed its most advanced missile defense system and Patriot batteries from Saudi Arabia in recent weeks, even as the kingdom faced continued air attacks from Yemen’s Houthi rebels, satellite photos analyzed by The Associated Press show.

    The redeployment of the defenses from Prince Sultan Air Base outside of Riyadh came as America’s Gulf Arab allies nervously watched the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, including their last-minute evacuations from Kabul’s besieged international airport.]

    I don’t know. They don’t say, only reported:

    [The redeployment of some defense capabilities of the friendly United States of America from the region is carried out through common understanding and realignment of defense strategies as an attribute of operational deployment and disposition,] the statement said.

    I think there is a lot of disagreement between Washington and its allies in the region since US left Afghanistan, but we don’t know much about the nature of these disagreements.

    Also they reported:

    [U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, on a tour of the Mideast in recent days, had been slated to go to Saudi Arabia but the trip was canceled because of what American officials referred to as scheduling problems. Saudi Arabia declined to discuss why Austin’s trip didn’t happen after the withdrawal of the missile defenses.]

    Saudi Arabia maintains its own Patriot missile batteries and typically fires two missiles at an incoming target. That’s become an expensive proposition amid the Houthi campaign, as each Patriot missile costs more than \$3 million.

    Of course. Now that Middle East is almost destroyed, it is the time to destroy China. It is obvious that they will focus on China from now on. They said the following:

    [A redeployment of the missiles had been rumored for months, in part because of a desire to face what American officials see as the looming “great powers conflict” with China and Russia.]

    Turkey is trying to deceive the public ‘acting’ as Erdogan is against Washington’s policy in the Middle East. In fact, Turkey remains the ‘Trojan Dog’ and friend of Israel, trying to play American game in the Central Asia and Afghanistan. No one should trust Turkey.

    The United States removed the MEK from its blacklist of designated terror groups after years of intense pressure.
    The Jewish mafia lobby’s intense pressure, including Allan Dershowitz, Irwin Cotler, Mark Dubowitaz, let to removal of MEK from the terrorist list of Canada in 2012.
    The delisting followed similar rulings in the UK in 2008 and the EU in 2009.

    Now, the MEK members should go and get a job, because they are NOT needed for anything from now on. Average age of these traitors is over 60 years and their ‘leader’ Maryam Rajavi cannot hold things together and pay thousands of dollars to fifth column US and European zionist politicians anymore, Saudi Arabia is not going to send more money to these traitors while Turki bin Faisal Al Saud does not need sexual favors from Rajavi anymore.

    People are fed up and tired. It is the time for these traitors and Western politicians acting as zionist fifth column to retire. No more money is coming from their financial backers. Israel is left to fight for its apartheid entity alone.

    Except that like most Cold War authors Solzhenitsyn exaggerates the role of Stalin’s policy and overlooks the fact that natural disaster caused an actual crop failure first in the Volga in 1931 and then in Ukraine in 1932. As Mark Tauger has documented extensively, the collectivization of agriculture did in fact improve Soviet agricultural production markedly after 1933. The classic Cold War that Stalin carried out huge exports of grain in the midst of famine is not true. Grain export was very low in the first half of 1933 because it was obvious that grain requisitions would be much smaller. One may argue that Stalin might have slightly ameliorated the famine if he had had a better grasp of how crop failure had occurred. As it was rustic plant disease meant that in many places a field of crops was reported as having grown, but then the quantity of grain in each stalk proved to be much less than usual. None of this was specifically Stalin’s handiwork.
