“No matter who tries to stand in our way… they must know that Russia will respond immediately, and the consequences will be such as you have never seen in your entire history…. I hope that my words will be heard.” Vladimir Putin issues warning to any country that tries to stop Russia’s “Special Operation” in Ukraine​

In a move that can only be regarded as a major escalation, NATO officials announced on Friday that they would deploy troops from its Combat-Ready Response Force to support the Ukrainian regime in its war with Russia. The Alliance will also send additional weapons which will be used to blunt the Russian offensive that has already seized large parts of the country and obliterated most of Ukraine’s defensive capability. It is impossible to overstate the gravity of NATO’s action which assigns such importance to preserving its ‘junta regime’ in Kiev that they would willingly pit NATO against a nuclear-armed Russia in what could become a much broader regional war. Clearly, the strategic objectives of this murky conflict go far beyond the mere control of an ethnically-divided, failed state situated between Europe and Asia. Ukraine is no longer just a geopolitical trophy for western elites, but a last-gasp effort for Washington to prove it still controls the levers of global power. Here’s the story from Reuters:

“NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Friday the alliance was deploying parts of its combat-ready response force and would continue to send weapons to Ukraine, including air defences, while saying that Russia was trying to topple the Ukrainian government.

“We see rhetoric, the messages, which is strongly indicating that the aim is to remove the democratically elected government in Kyiv,” he told a news conference following a virtual meeting of NATO leaders.
(“NATO allies to provide more weapons to Ukraine, Stoltenberg says”, Reuters)

Stoltenberg’s decision gives Russian president Vladimir Putin no choice but to locate and destroy whatever weapons or troops enter the country that could be used to kill or injure Russian servicemen. Naturally, the killing of NATO personnel could be used to further escalate the conflict plunging the region into a much wider and more violent conflagration. Here’s more from Stoltenberg’s press conference on Friday:

“Yesterday, NATO Allies activated our defense plans… on land, at sea, and in the air…. The United States, Canada and European Allies have deployed thousands more troops to the eastern part of the Alliance… We now have over 100 jets at high alert operating in over 30 different locations… and over 120 ships from the High North to the Mediterranean… including three strike carrier groups….

We have many planes operating in the eastern part of the Alliance (and) several Allies have partly already assigned troops and forces to the NATO Response Force.” Weapon support also includes “air defence systems…” (which could be used to enforce a no-fly zone.)

This is the most serious security crisis we have faced in Europe for decades….... It is about how Russia is actually challenging core values for security, and demanding that NATO should withdraw all forces and infrastructure from almost half of our members. And they have stated that if we don’t meet their demands, there will be “military-technical consequences.” So, we have to take this seriously. And that’s exactly why we are now deploying the NATO Response Force, for the first time in a collective defence context.” (NATO’s Virtual Summit, Feb 25, 2022)

Stoltenberg is right, Russia is challenging NATO’s core values on security, and demanding that Alliance roll back its forces and infrastructure from Russia’s doorstep. What Stoltenberg fails to mention is that NATO expansion poses an existential threat to Russia by placing missile sites, military bases and combat troops on its border. He also fails to mention that NATO expansion violates agreements (to which all of the NATO members are signatores) stipulating that all parties to the agreement will refrain from any action that could affect the security interests of the other members. In Istanbul (1999) and in Astana (2010), the US and the other 56 countries in the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) signed documents “that contained interrelated principles to ensure the indivisibility of security.”

What that means in practical terms, is that nations cannot put military bases and missile sites in locations that pose a threat to other members. It means that parties must refrain from using their respective territories to carry out or assist armed aggression against other members. It means that parties are prohibited from acting in a manner that runs counter to the principles laid out in the treaty. It means that Ukraine cannot become a member of NATO if its membership poses a threat to Russian security.

So, yes, Russia is challenging NATO’s approach to security, mainly because NATO’s approach is built on the rubble of treaties that the member states already signed and approved but now refuse to honor because it doesn’t advance their geopolitical objectives.

Stoltenberg would like us all to believe that joining NATO should simply be a matter of personal choice (“Every nation has the right to choose its own security arrangements”) like choosing which flavor of ice cream one wants to eat. But that is not how leaders protect their countries from potential threats. Those threats can only be mitigated when other nations agree that they “will NOT strengthen their own security at the expense of the security of others.” That’s the bottom line and that is never going to change. National security is every leader’s highest priority and it always will be. Stoltenberg rejects this fundamental tenet of global security, and his rejection has paved the way to war. If you want to know who’s responsible for the war in Ukraine: Blame NATO. Here’s how Putin summed it up:

“Over the past 30 years we have been patiently trying to come to an agreement with the leading NATO countries regarding the principles of equal and indivisible security in Europe. In response to our proposals, we invariably faced either cynical deception and lies or attempts at pressure and blackmail, while the North Atlantic alliance continued to expand despite our protests and concerns. Its military machine is moving and, as I said, is approaching our very border.

Why is this happening? Where did this insolent manner of talking down from the height of their exceptionalism, infallibility and all-permissiveness come from? What is the explanation for this contemptuous and disdainful attitude to our interests and absolutely legitimate demands?”

“For the United States and its allies, it is a policy of containing Russia, with obvious geopolitical dividends. For our country, it is a matter of life and death, a matter of our historical future as a nation. This is not an exaggeration; this is a fact. It is not only a very real threat to our interests but to the very existence of our state and to its sovereignty. It is the red line which we have spoken about on numerous occasions. They have crossed it.” (“Address by the President of the Russian Federation“, Kremlin, RU)

It’s worth noting, that Stoltenberg has been chosen to become Norway’s next Central Bank chief which illustrates the cozy relationship between the Big Money and the geopolitical machinations that invariably end in war. We can only wonder whether this risky gambit in Ukraine is actually an attempt to preserve a western financial system that is so thoroughly-marinated in corruption that its markets require monthly infusions of billions of dollars in digital cash to prevent a system-wide meltdown followed by a precipitous decline in the value of the dollar. By keeping Russia down, Stoltenberg’s backers might be hoping they can breathe new life into the rotting corpse of the imperial system. But whatever the reason may be, the deploying of NATO Combat-Ready Response Force greatly increases the chances of a miscalculation that could lead to disaster. Check out this short blurb from an article by Ulrich Kühn who points out the risks of current strategy:

“President Biden and other Western leaders have made it clear repeatedly that they would not send forces to Ukraine. ….That does not mean, however, that unintended actions by Russia… or by individual NATO member states could not spark a larger conflict that no one planned. During the next hours, days, and weeks, the risk of what strategists call “inadvertent escalation” will increase….

Another possible scenario for inadvertent escalation is linked to western calls for arming Ukrainian forces. A day before the Russian assault, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced, “the UK will shortly be providing a further package of military support to Ukraine. This will include lethal aid in the form of defensive weapons and non-lethal aid.” As morally justified such calls might sound in the current environment, the question remains: How will weapons be transferred to Ukraine, now that Russia has established air dominance over the country? They would almost certainly not be flown in but would have to be provided using land or sea routes. It would thus be in the interest of the Russian military to gain quick control over Ukraine’s western borders with NATO allies. Possible efforts by individual NATO member states to send additional military equipment via the Ukrainian land borders could be met with fierce Russian resistance and may lead to skirmishes between Russian and NATO personnel.” (The pathways of inadvertent escalation: Is a NATO-Russia war (now) possible?” Bulletin of Atomic Scientists)

So, what does this excerpt tell us?

It tells us that the foreign policy establishment has already “gamed-out” the developments we now see unfolding. NATO would like to lure Putin into attacking their supply-lines, so the action could be used to justify greater involvement in the conflict. In other words, what we’re seeing is a calculated effort to (incrementally) increase the probability of a war between Russia and NATO. There’s nothing that would please Uncle Sam more than to see Russia bogged down in bloody quagmire that further isolates Moscow from Europe and prevents the type of economic integration needed to draw the continents together into the world’s largest free trade zone. Washington wants to avoid that scenario at all cost. Check out this quote from Russian economist Sergie Glaziev:

“To maintain their world dominance, the (US) is provoking another war in Europe. A war is always good for America. They even call the Second World War which killed 50 million people in Europe and Russia, a good war. It was good for America because the US emerged from this war as the world’s leading power. The Cold War which ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union was also good for them. Now the US again wants to maintain its leadership at the expense of Europe. US leadership is being threatened by a rapidly rising China. The world today is shifting to yet another cycle, this time political. This cycle lasts centuries and is associated with the global institutions of regulatory economics.

We are now moving from the American cycle of capital accumulation to an Asian cycle. This is another crisis that is challenging US hegemony. To maintain their leading position in the face of competition with a rising China and other Asian countries Americans are starting a war in Europe. They want to weaken Europe, break up Russia, and subjugate the entire Eurasian continent. That is, instead of a development zone from Lisbon to Vladivostok, which is proposed by President Putin, the US wants to start a chaotic war on this territory, embroil all Europe in a war, devalue to European capital, write off its public debt, under the burden of which the US is already falling apart, write off what they owe to Europe and Russia, subjugate our economic space and establish control over resources of the giant Eurasian continent. They believe that this is the only way they can maintain their hegemony and beat China….

Russia and Ukraine are the victims of this war which is being fomented by the Americans. But Europe is also a victim because the war aims to target European welfare and to destabilize Europe. Americans expect the European capital and brain drain to America will continue. That’s why they are setting all of Europe on fire. It’s very strange that European leaders are going along with them.” (Watch this extraordinary 2014 Interview with Russian intellectual Sergei Glaziev that was posted at The Saker website nearly 10 years ago)

The deployment of NATO’s Combat-Ready Response Force provides more evidence that the Alliance is an aggressive and war-mongering​ organization which undermines European security and puts the entire world at risk. As America’s cat’s-paw on the continent, NATO invariably acts in Washington’s interests. With that is mind, we should expect to see a steady intensification of hostilities directed at Russia, all of which are designed to further divide the continents while tightening Washington’s grip on power.

(Correction: NATO troops will not operate within Ukraine but exclusively in NATO member states. This was not clear from NATO’s original communique. The question remains, however, is the providing of heavy weapons an act of war? In my opinion, it would be quite easy for NATO to end the fighting by simply agreeing to make Ukraine permanently neutral, implementing the Minsk​ Protocol, and abandoning all plans to deploy nuclear missiles to Poland and Romania. Putin’s only demand is that NATO seriously address Russia’s legitimate security concerns.)

    ZOG is a sadomasochistic death cult. Ameritards refused to see that ZOG took over the country following WW2, and has been cultivating psychotic Zoglodytes ever since. Today’s ((Jewish)) and liberal-neocon “elite” are the spawn. They all pay tribute to Israel. These Zionists (yes, that includes corrupt-liberals like AOC and Whoopi Goldberg) have absolutely no idea how toxic they are.

    They truly believe they’re infallible, and the “chosen” godhead of Zion is on their side. Sadly, this includes paleocons like Pat Buchanan — implicated by his association with the Nixon/((Kissinger)) admin, and Paul Craig Roberts, implicated as Assistant Treasury Secretary in the ((Lew Wasserman))-made Reagan admin (which continued the Nixon trend of bringing neocons into the GOP).
    https://christiansfortruth.com/when-comedian-don-rickles-joked-that-ronald-reagan-wouldnt-be-governor-if-the-jews-didnt-approve-of-him/

    People, we’re in mortal danger unless we deal with ZOG once and for all. But solving the problem of ZOG won’t happen until you admit the existence of ZOG. I don’t see too many ((MSM)) brainwashed liberal Ameritards doing this, let alone “conservative” Ameritards.

    Does anyone think Russia doesn’t know the score? Their nukes are no doubt locked and loaded.

    Meanwhile, Ameritards think they’re headed to the Holy Zion Stock Market in the sky, because “Derp derp… more money than god!”

  2. What that means in practical terms, is that nations cannot put military bases and missile sites in locations that pose a threat to other members.

    Hey, Mike, how about you start using search engines and translators and stop feeding us with your blatant disinformation? Here is what you can find after just a few minutes of searching:
    “Kaliningrad is home to the 152nd Guards Missile Brigade, which has a dozen Iskander-M dual-charge ballistic missile systems. Counting reloads, the brigade can fire two salvos of 24 hypersonic ballistic missiles that will land an average of six meters from their intended target at a distance of up to 310 miles [about 500 kilometers], such as in northern Berlin. Russian tactical nuclear weapons stored in Kaliningrad are likely intended for use with Iskander missiles, which can carry a nuclear warhead up to 50 kilotons in TNT equivalent as well as a conventional warhead.”
    It follows that if Russia did not have intentions to attack NATO, it would withdraw the missles from the region that is surrounded by NATO nations .It’s a shame that you get paid for your sloppy work.

    What’s Next????

    Germany’s Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, has announced that Germany will deliver weapons directly to Ukraine.

    He said Germany would be sending 1,000 anti-tank weapons and 500 Stinger missiles.

    Berlin has also dropped some restrictions on German-made weapons being sent to conflict zones, meaning that third countries will be able to send more arms to Ukraine.

    Mr Scholz said the Russian invasion marked a turning point.

    The move reverses Germany’s long-standing policy of banning weapon exports to conflict zones.

    No. NATO did not declare war. (1)

    NATO Agrees To Partial Deployment Of Response Force To Eastern Member Countries

    NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg says the alliance will deploy parts of its combat-ready response force to reassure Eastern member countries after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

    “We are now deploying the NATO response force for the first time in the context of collective defense,” Stoltenberg told a news conference on February 25 following a virtual NATO summit.

    But NATO has said it won’t launch any military action in support of Ukraine, which is a close partner of the alliance but not a member.

    So, the NATO Combat-Ready Response Force is headed to full NATO member countries. Presumably, most will go to Poland to head off any border issues.

    “NATO Troops Stay In NATO Countries”, is not much of a war threat.

    PEACE 😇

  6. first, Putin tried to subdue the Ukes with minimal force instead

    of a blitzkrieg. Then he “paused” and wasted two days trying to negotiate

    with ZOG-stooge (((Zelensky))). 5 days on, and

    the Ukes are still shelling Donetz; neither Kharkov nor Kiev has fallen; the Ukes are arming tens of thousands of civilians to fight as partisans; and the Uke border with NATO Poland still has not been secured. All of which

    gives the ZOGlobohomos an opportunity to turn Ukraine into another Chechnya @ 10X scale.

    at this point, I wouldn’t trust Putin to win at rock, paper, scissors.

  8. Sad, this article makes the “faux” suggestion that something as deployment of troops inside Ukraine’s borders is envisioned. On the contrary the shaping of a hard border between WE(Western Europe) and Russia(and allies, forced allies, allies of choice) is to be evidenced, forced upon –not chosen– by NATO. The new status quo just was defined and glad(as far as NATO) at that. “We the West retract, desist, to the West of former Ukraine’s borders.”

    Eating out of all plates is no longer possible for Germany et al. What is happening is the forced confirmation of choices. US et al. de facto confirms the borders of their sphere of influence outside of the borders of what used to be Ukraine. Saving face. The spin of public communication is the decision to hunker down and declare Ukraine lost. Russia just sees it’s blitz effort to be turned into a long term obligation, decidedly a forced choice. That as a downside? Opinions differ.

    It would be now, a real defiance of strength if there are parallel developments elsewhere, in or outside WE, to really bite the Western corrupted systemics at the ankles. If not, the new status quo has just been defined as permanent.

    The world indeed is now the planet. There is no “neutral” Allah-la Switzerland. The core issue: energy, control of energy. The “reset” *is* WWIII. Calories –in any currency– is the potent new indicator to define stock and bond indexes, Central bank issues. Out in the open. unz.com should urge M. Hudson to chime in. This week, dining on Ukraine frivolities –even covid had to fade into the background– it is decidedly economics at play. And since economics is Hudson’s specialty in cuisine, we eagerly await his ready served burger.

  9. It isn’t “impossible to overstate the gravity of NATO’s action.” How do I know? Because you just overstated it! NATO is doing the expected and inevitable. It is posturing to send the message that NATO will defend itself, won’t fight for Ukraine, but will supply weapons. How could it do otherwise? Did you really expect them to say “OK Vlad, you’re right, we hereby dissolve the alliance”?!

    NATO doesn’t want to fight Russia. They want Ukrainians to fight Russia, to the last man, woman and child if possible. That’s why they’ve been brainwashing them with anti-Russian propaganda for 8 years. It was stupid of Putin to wait this long. He should’ve seen where this was heading.

    If he would’ve struck during the Maidan or immediately afterwards, Ukraine would have been easy pickings. Now they’re better armed and almost completely brainwashed and it’s a much more serious fight which the West will try to prolong for as long as possible.

    Putin probably thought that the puppet regime would collapse quickly, but the Americans and Brits running the show in Ukraine have proven more competent than he anticipated. If this drags on for too long, it could lead to a collapse of Putin’s regime and Russia as a state. But if he’s successful, it might become a “winter of 42” type moment.

  11. If NATO forces enter Ukraine, Putin should immediately send conventional missiles into Poland and the other countries that joined NATO after it was agreed that NATO wouldn’t move an inch east. Those missiles should take out all the military installations NATO has any interest in. He should use the Shock and Awe doctrine pioneered by the US.

  18. NATO officials announced on Friday that they would deploy troops from its Combat-Ready Response Force to support the Ukrainian regime in its war with Russia.

    Upon having read this assertion I immediately suspected it was not true, based on previous pieces by this author, which are full with Russian propaganda lies and innuendo that frame a fake narrative.

    So I went to the NATO link of the press conference transcript and have confirmed that the claim made above is an exaggeration and intentionally misleading. It is meant to suggest that NATO troops are being sent into Ukraine to take part in the war effort.

    It makes one wonder who is feeding this author the obvious war propaganda that he disseminates. This distortion is a form of psychological warfare, on display before our eyes. It is formulated to promote and spread false rumors and thereby incite fear, anxiety, and revulsion. Some of the keyboard fanatics here have already been transformed into a state of frenzy by this calibrated nonsense, so these techniques do work on gullible people.

    Here is what Stoltenberg actually was quoted as having said:

    …deploying more troops in the eastern part Alliance…

    NATO Allies expressed at the Summit today that they provide support to Ukraine. They are ready to continue to provide support to Ukraine. Military support, financial support, humanitarian support.

    There is no mention whatsoever of moving NATO combat troops into Ukraine, nor was there a declaration of war.

    Military support is rather generic and could be as basic as providing satellite information, or communicating other useful information to Ukraine. Providing military equipment also seems to be legitimate support.

    NATO troops are being moved toward the border regions of NATO because Putin has expressed threats and shown himself inclined to exploit perceived weakness. This is not alarming and should be an expected response to a frustrated mad-man who is currently on a war rampage.

  19. Urgent question to all those who know something about modern warfare: What type of weapon causes mushroom shaped cloud? It is extremely important!

    He said Germany would be sending 1,000 anti-tank weapons and 500 Stinger missiles.

    Ineffective. These weapons systems are decades old.

    The important thing is that NATO and US have no effective military countermeasures, whether conventional forces or nuclear forces. In this particular conflict, NATO/US is outclassed.

    Economically, the US/EU is in dire straits, largely by very bad US decisions imposed on itself and the EU. Economic sanctions would destabilize the US and EU more than the Russian Federation. Again, US/EU outclassed.

    Basic fact:
    * Russia’s USSR state failed 3 decades ago. The Russian Federation (RF) is a comparatively young state, and comparatively well organized. It is even younger than the People’s Republic of China, which is old enough to be undergoing its first crisis of young adulthood (relying on a capital boom for permanent prosperity being analogous to going on bender) as you read this. The young RF has the energy and ability to spend decades arranging the trap into which the EU/NATO/US insisted on walking into. N else does. That’s the basics.

    Now that the US has been out-played, a situation that seems likely to last for the rest of Pres. Biden’s term (and possibly a lot longer), a Russian/German alliance is a likely outcome of the current situation. The German population is growing sick of its government, harassed by the foreigners their government is replacing them with, and poor as well. All it needs do is switch it’s government and alliance and suddenly it might be able to follow a policy that actually benefits the German population.

The information is as follows. There was a meeting at night. Putin is in the Urals. Businessmen are summoned specifically to the meeting, so that no one flew away in panic. The war is costing \$20 billion a day. Putin is enraged. Putin was sure it would be an easy walk and counted on Kharkov to surrender first with other cities to follow. There aren’t enough missiles. Enough for 3-4 days ceiling. They are being saved. There are no weapons. The Tula plant and the other 2 Rotenberg plants can’t fulfill orders for weapons. Rifles and bullets. Physically. Weapons are in short supply. The next guns are realistic to get in 3-4 months. And that’s it!!! No raw materials. All hope is to sow panic among the population, so they shoot at residential neighborhoods. It’s been decided that if Ukraine holds for 10 more days, then they have to start negotiations.”

    If NATO had not violated their “solemn” agreements to not make incursions beyond the old Oder-Niesse line into previous Iron Curtain states it is highly unlikely that Russia would felt need to place such armaments into their tiny slice of what was formerly Ost Preussen.

These golems have even been convinced to gleefully worship half-ape negroids as some sort of holy figures. Of course they are going to enthusiastically accept a sudden nuclear WW3 scenario if their Jewish masters tell them to. Why would anyone expect anything different?!

    Let me tell you something. If the Jewish media told people that they need to eat bowls of their own feces for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the average Westoid would comply without question. This is not a joke or exaggeration.

    That’s why the endless stream of white supremacist articles published on this website extolling the virtues and superiority of “The West” are so laughable. Do these authors just close their eyes and pretend to not to see the monkey-like behavior of the modern Westerner all around them? Why do they insist on pretending they live in an era from 100 years ago?

    With aerial supremacy and armed with hypersonic missiles for use against long-range threats, Russia holds a pair of trump-cards. In the first instance, those carrier assault groups mentioned by Whitney, those carriers would become sitting ducks if they attempted to launch strike forces. The F-35 Flying Turkey would not stand a chance against Russian aircraft or missilry. In the second instance, considering aerial supremacy, either trains or trucks highly suspect of smuggling weaponry into Ukraine would be intercepted within Ukrainian territory.

That time has come and how right I was. Now all over the world the people “has seen the real face of a murderous, genocidal new Hitler” just like the mass media of the West had been telling them for years yet they refused to believe. Many who loved him, regular people who cared little about world politics, see him now just like another bloodthirsty monster getting loose. Had he done the right thing at the right time Yanukovich would have stayed in power after breaking a few bones and opening a few skulls and at most Ukraine would have become divided between a Nazi, pro NATO West and a pro Russian or just Russian East and that would have been it. But no, he wouldn’t do the right thing because he was obsessed with his loser, incredibly stupid “my very first priority in foreign relations is to have good ones with the U.S.” (!) strategy and here we are now. But even worse, he has managed to make a bad situation worse by invading the whole or most of Ukraine so now he has set himself for his own Afghanistan in the very core of Europe. he has given himself as a willing prey for NATO and NATO wont let him go even if they had to get the whole of the Ukrainian population killed.

    the Jewnighted West has declared Russia war – the Third Jewish World War JWW3 –
    a long time ago. Multiple declarations of war were in effect made official last week (of Feb. 2022).

    (e.g. Russia reached out to Germany to pull it out of that evil western swamp. Germany bit the Russian hand instead. The dog must not bite the good providing master, “the consequences will be such as you have never seen in your entire history“).
    https://www.rt.com/russia/550723-germany-send-weapons-ukraine-operation/
    https://www.rt.com/russia/550735-germany-closes-airspace-russia/

    The Jewnighted West restarted genociding Russian peoples with the organized collapse of the USSR (and celebrated while Russian people were dying like flies). It reculminated with the genociding of the Russian compatriots in Donbass as everyone with an ounce (Unze) of truth left in him can know (if he wants to, thanks to the Internet).

    This forced Jewish war is going to be the last for a long time. It is not just going to purify Europe in blood. This war is also going home to the Americas. Feel unlucky and lucky at the same time, if you live to see the sun afterwards.

    Thank you for this focus!

    The so-called “US policy” is only superficially made by the US, and is not in the interests of US citizens. It is more accurately called the “London / Wall Street pirate’s” policy. Our elected representatives are appeasing
    the London / Wall Street pirate empire, who control them by bribery and intimidation,, acceding to their violation of stated American values and common sense moral decency, and in their destruction of American and European interests for their extravagant profits. The people of America and Western Europe are victims of these financial pirates right along with the people of Ukraine and Russia.

    The financial pirates controlling NATO depend on their capacity to deceive the people of the western “democracies” into thinking that their pirate aggression is on the side of justice. If the people of the US, the UK, France, Germany, and Ukraine were to suddenly realize this fundamental fact, this whole manufactured conflict would evaporate, and these war profiteering pirates could be brought to justice.

    “the rotting corpse of the imperial system”

    John Hobson has explained how imperial policies are driven by the topmost financiers, who control governments and deploy their armies to plunder the resources of other countries. These people dragged the US into becoming their imperial tool after doing the same with Britain. For new Unz Review readers, key quotes and a summary of his key points are in
    “War Profiteers and Israel’s Bank”
    https://warprofiteerstory.blogspot.com/p/war-profiteers-and-israels-bank.html

    Particularly worrisome in this case is that these men often want war because it is a major profit center for them. So addition to saving their financial empire, and possibly plundering the resources of Russia and Ukraine, they may be intentionally pushing their cowardly underlings into a major war on purpose.

Putin is an exception to the rest, even though he was aided by the same PTB, for he dared to rebel and decided to act as a nationalist leader despite his globalist leanings whereby in choosing between the oligarchic diktats pronounced by the WEF and the interests of the Russian people, his choice is firmly in favour of the latter.

    Let us hope that Putin will revive the ghost of France’s greatest leader, the late General De Gaulle, who failed to continue his great project of European economic integration without any encroachment of a European bureaucracy on national rights, courtesy of an Anglo Zionist colour revolution fuelled by the 1968 Sorbonne student uprising. Will a desperately faltering U.S. hegemon resort to upping the ante into WWIII is something that the American public have no influence over if history is any guide, but Europeans being the prime victims of such an eventuality, could stop the slide into certain disaster by rebelling against their puppet leaders whose strings are shaking them on a war path dance, that if it is to materialise into actual war, our world will descend into its worst nightmare ever.

    Moral degradation of the ZOG in the context of the Arlington WWII Fallen Remembered: https://www.voltairenet.org/article215848.html

    On the night of 25 to 26 February 2022, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed a ceasefire proposal to Russia via the Chinese Embassy in Kiev.
    The Kremlin immediately informed him of its terms:
    – arrest of all Nazis (special military adviser Dmitro Yarosh, Azov Battalion, etc.),
    – removal of all street names and monuments glorifying Nazi collaborators during World War II (Stepan Bandera, etc.),
    – surrender of weapons.

    Where is the Jewish Lobby to support enthusiastically this ultimatum (arrest of all Nazis, removal of all street names and monuments glorifying Nazi collaborators…”) – Not a peep. Instead, the zionist-owned MSM continues pro-neonazi propaganda.

    Well, first the US/NATO-waged Wars for Israel (against Iraq, Libya, Syria) have produced millions of casualties and brought destruction to several countries. Now, the US/NATO-waged war, in collaboration with neonazis, against Russia, has been producing casualties because the zionized US not only spurred a civil war in Ukraine but prohibited the implementation of Minsk I and Minsk II agreements, which would stop the bloodshed immediately (Russians keep their word – unlike the zionized US). Behind all these wars stands a group of Jewish Russophobes who have neither honor nor shame but a mantra “what is good for Jews.” The internet has even suggested a new name for American ziocons – the zionazis.

    The Jewish Lobby has been weaving an intricate net into which it is now tightly swaddled. The level of Disgrace is Monumental: Ziocons happened to be the greatest “antisemites” by virtue of their collaboration with the self-proclaimed neonazis (see Azov battalion), the murderers of the civilian populations in Ukraine.

    There was a period of “taming” the Ukrainian neonazis to make them into a useful tool against Russia. For instance, the Jewish Lobby has allowed the Canadian Banderites to build several monuments for Ukrainian-Nazi collaborators. Eventually, Canadian Banderites did become a useful tool for ziocons. https://forward.com/news/462694/nazi-collaborator-monuments-in-canada/

    In 1997, Canada admitted to taking in 2,000 Ukrainian SS Galichina soldiers after WWII

    Fortunately for Russia, China isn’t the basket case it was in the 1950’s. Now it complements well the Russian economy. China needs (and can pay for) every kind of raw material and is the world’s principal importer of these products. Also China can pretty much duplicate everything that Russia was importing from Germany apart from a few luxury products.

    So the economic logic dictates that Russia’s centre of gravity moves East. New cities, development, infrastructure etc. as it integrates further with Asia.

    Reg, on what basis are you talking about the presumption of Hungarians? Reassure me, your sources were not CNN, NYTimes, Guardian. I, as a molecular biologist living in Budapest, approaching fifty, can tell you how and why I became a Russian friend. Until the nineties I had a profound hatred of the Russians, but then they withdrew from Hungary and I saw the once proud and powerful empire reduced to servitude, plundered by Jewish oligarchs with American backgrounds, and in a constant state of civil war. Then Putin came and I began to respect the Russians. America missed an opportunity to integrate a country with endless resources into Europe. Of course, this was not in the US interest, you are sitting in Europe 77 years after the world war to use Europe and its resources for your own interests. Using the dollar, through inflation, even we Hungarians are paying for the above average prosperity of your incompetent and aggressive blacks. In addition, it soon became clear to me, when bombing Serbia, that you are fighting for anti-Christian white goals. The icing on the cake is that your idiotic woke culture has now made a laughing stock of the once admired USA. Anti-racism, LGBTQ, and coffee brewing women like Ms Nuland, KH etc. are your decision making positions, Pelosi confuses Hungary with Ukraine, but she could still give lessons to your imbecilic president. Really, the higher the position in the US, the more useless someone is. So compared to you, the Russians are a refreshing example of normality, you haven’t had a politician like Putin in the last thirty years. We Hungarians, at least the majority of the population, vote for normality, which is why Viktor Orbán has been our prime minister since 2010, and will be again for four years after the April vote. So you’d be shocked to know how many Hungarians sympathise with Putin…

    The stance concerning SWIFT in the public domain would be the “logic and reason” for the better part of the world populations, further elongated from any participation. Would align acceptably as a bargain chip out of the public eye to trade between the US and the conglomerate of the East(Russia China) at the top level only. That would “secure and attribute” Western Europe being permanently under the yoke of the ruling classes to the advantage of the US infrastructure and administrations control, leaving Western European power classes with venues for personal enrichment only, keeping the public nailed to the bottom. Thus making it an acceptable deal for all partners in global rule. One step closer long term globalism.

    Sending weapons into a war zone that you have already decided you will NOT defend with your own troops only prolongs the opportunities for your clients to die. It creates the illusion of support, which might be equivalent to inviting more of them to commit suicide.

    The tactic of arming weak client groups with insufficient assistance and then washing your hands of them when they inevitably fail is the primary pattern of US and western behavior since WWII.

    The responsible thing for the US to do at this point is to advise the Ukraine resisters to stand out of the way, ask Russia for a ceasefire, then negotiate a settlement that corrects our dangerous overreach. That would be warmly regarded by all parties. Then do the real work of talking down the threat of nuclear war.

    Ukraine is loved on all the media sites so long as it appears to be vainly resisting the inevitable Russian control. Send them old rifles for their self-defense in Kiev and see them blown to bits or thrown in POW cells as Russian troops systematically overthrow any real defenses.

    It is posturing to send the message that NATO will defend itself, won’t fight for Ukraine, but will supply weapons. How could it do otherwise?

    I agree. Though Whitney is also correct in that it is impossible to overstate the risks of business being conducted between two nuclear superpowers in this manner.

    In the end, it’s a fool’s errand to try to figure out what is salient and determinative in real-time at moments such as this one. There’s too much happening, and too much disinformation coming over the transom from all concerned, which ain’t limited to the US and Russia.

    Conversely, as I’ve previously implored. analysis begins on safe ground as an historical matter by accepting the ineluctable truths of the following:

    All sovereigns pursue their sovereign interest. They are birds of a feather, distinguished only by capabilities to execute in furtherance thereof under the totality of their circumstances. They are all in agreement, despite all their promises otherwise, that we humans are supposed to take one for the team.

    I made that so broad that it appears meaningless, or at least long-term as a salve to current side-taking in terms of what’s motivating these powers. And also to downgrade the role of personalities as some sort of analytical dues ex machina.

    Say what you will about President Putin, while counterfactuals are always fraught and I don’t mean to ignore his central role in Russia’s resurgence, over the last two decades his actions have been congruent with Russia’s sovereign interests.

    President Biden, the American “Yeltsin, proves the rule from the negative. While getting Trump back where he belongs in the Oval Office is a condition precedent to reversing comprehensive US decline, it won’t cohere the permanent leviathan under a legitimate, constitutional president, as demonstrated from the time he took the oath until the moment the illegitimate Potemkin Village Idiot was installed.

    So, yes, the US without a president who can at least serviceably function as a figurehead/pitchman for the national security state, like Clinton/Bush/Obama, is exceedingly dangerous, not just for the vital interests of America and Americans, but the entire world. But a plug-n-play of whomever anyone thinks is the right man for this moment can’t make go away the world-historical Sad Story of the US-led post-Cold War 32 years.

    The principal point that I want to end my comment with by emphasizing is that it’s a grave analytical error that leads to failed forecasting to assume that all events are driven by all parties pursuant to the future. Supreme f**k ups like expanding NATO until Russia is driven into a Strategic Alliance with China lead those most responsible, especially when they’re still in power, to protect themselves, individually and institutionally from liability for what they have wrought. It’s been evident to me at least that there simply isn’t anything of our national interest and the interests of the American people that they won’t sacrifice to protect themselves and their power.

    A small example of this in realtime is Canada’s recent, otherwise inexplicable, invocation for mere days of the Emergencies Act under laugh or cry justification. Yes, it has nefarious objectives going forward but, unless I miss my mark, it played out the way it did to post-facto legalize the surveillance and repression tactics the Canadian government has been engaging in ultra vires for the last two years under the Covid catch-all.

    After Russia conquers Ukraine it will be stuck with “an ethnically-divided, failed state situated between Europe and Asia”.

    With all of the asymmetric hybrid warfare that the U.S. has seen in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria for over 2 decades, Russia can be sure that weapons will be smuggled into Russia occupied Ukraine 24/7, with accompanying attacks on Russian personnel, structures and vehicles as well as assassinations of collaborators.

    The result will most probably be non-stop death and destruction instigated by ethnic Ukrainian nationals with the Russian response being a ruthless repression of the ethnic Ukrainian population.

    You can’t be part of the global community without being global. This should be priority number one. It’s more important than climate change.

    The Russian Police Action in the Ukraine is long overdue.

    Putin probably got the briefing when he started work at KGB. Even Stalin wrote about it.

    What remains to be seen is when and where the denazification action ends…as logically it would end with the arrest of the people who give them orders…and THAT is not in Ukraine…

    For the Russians there is no semantic differentiation between “NATO” or “the West” or “nazi” – and this was recently repeated on RT “Going Underground” Bluntly, NATO has been at war with Russia since day one, and NATO is a nazi front. It is not a German nazi front…who occupies Germany?

Chechens are going to be losers here as well, since Vlad is calling them up to do the ground work. All of which is a big hmm.

    Current events are exposing the fact that NATO, like it’s American master, is a paper tiger. A massive, corrupt, bureaucracy. Very few good people actually want to die in a war for the WEF globalist empire. The same cannot be said about Russians willing to die for Mother Russia. All NATO has ever shown any skill at is being able to bomb mud-huts in third world countries where they have complete control of the air-space. In their only real land war engagement, Afghanistan, they only ever controlled the land they currently stood on or had bases on, and eventually lost and withdrew.

    The west and the vassal media knows this, at least subconsciously, and they telegraph their fear by blubbering about Putin taking over all of Europe. That’s because if he really was motivated to, Putin probably could take over all of Europe, at least militarily, assuming nukes were not deployed.

    Of course that could change very quickly. It’s being reported that Russia is bringing in TOS-1 heavy flamethrowers.

    Just like those brave soldiers on Snake Island said, ‘Go F yourself Mike!

    This just in – those brave soldiers on Snake Island did the most sensible thing they could, they laid down their arms and surrendered. None of them died, which is the best possible outcome. They are now being looked after by the Russians, and are waiting to be returned home.

    Meanwhile, reports also now coming in that the alleged Russian tank which crushed the occupied car was actually not Russian, but Ukrainian.

    It all depends very much on where you get your reports, who you listen to and what you want to believe.

    Truth is always the first casualty of war. Best to be particular about one’s sources, or better still, just avoid the hysteria and focus on the big picture.

    Good day Mr Oldsack,

    A very interesting comnent! I hope you will eloborate further on it.

    Yesterday I read an article on LewRockwell.com (shared in newsfeed by realist) which, amongst other things, suggested… wait, I’ll get the quote…

    After months of threatening Russia with expulsion from the SWIFT financial messaging system, Europe complained and someone finally showed some sense.

    Cutting Russia out of SWIFT would mean the end of the EU as anyone has known it or wishes it could be in the future. It would mean the end of the petrodollar system.

    Russia is too systemically important to the global commodity trade that goes far beyond energy. It supplies not only the marginal barrel of oil and BTU of natural gas, but pound of nickel, palladium, titanium, enriched uranium and tungsten. It’s a major supplier of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, potash, and urea.”

    (My emphasis.)
    https://www.lewrockwell.com/2022/02/thomas-luongo/putin-ushers-in-the-new-geopolitical-game-board/

    My understanding (very limited as it surely is) is that to cut Russia off from SWIFT would be to pull the pkug on their iwn source of power.

    I’d greatly appreciate your thoughts and reflections on this.

    Fond regards,
    Kali.

America would like nothing more than for the fighting to continue for many months, even until the last Ukrainian soldier is dead, as it would also mean serious Russian attrition.

    If have my doubts if Russia has the financial resources to win such a war unless it goes nuclear, in which case the whole world loses. So, my hope is that China enters the fray on the side of Russia. Wouldn’t this be the perfect time for them to annex Taiwan?

    Russia is that poor out kid in the playground jungle for whom the hazing and bullying never stops.

    NATO doesn’t want Ukraine either; they just want to saddle Russia with a major drag on their economy, as Ukraine has been to Western economies. Then tar Putin and Russia as aggressors with all the pent-up racism that can be mustered.

    The withdrawal from Ukraine follows the withdrawal from Afghanistan, taking refugee labour as a consolation prize for losing the bigger booby prize.

    So no, NATO did not just declare war and never will. Deploying the CRRF is just more vitriolic virtue signaling to write off Ukraine and peace for as long as possible.

Global Research is also covering the NATO/Ukrainian/National Socialist complex of issues in detail and looking at those developments in relationship to the ongoing war on humanity by COVID officialdom.

    The big news in Canada is that Trudeau’s withdrawal of the extension of the War Measures Act is connected to the agreement between the WEF and the Canadian Bankers’ Association to make Canada a prototype for the Digit ID/Cashless Money transformation to create the technological context for our version of China’s Social Credit system (enslavement).

    Who can believe now that the direction of the UR project is as it was made to seem until the “anti-vaxx” vituperation was introduced.

    There is sooo much more to this Ukraine incursion, that isn’t being told, but it will come out eventually.

    Some idiot troll above claimed that MH17 was shot down by Russia. To anyone who was paying attention, it was/is perfectly clear that Russia was set up, and that Ukraine shot that Jet down with the active participation of US/Nato/Netherlands/Australia. The entire pathetic joke concerning the black box reminds so much of Hillary Clintons bashed Blackberry’s, Bleachbitted servers, and lost Emails. The coverup was as complete and traceless as the theft of Ukrainian and Libyan central bank gold in 2014 and 2011.

    The amount of revelations that could come out from a rapid conquest of Kiev is mind blowing.
    From Biolabs to Hunter’s laptop to Billions in bribes from UN, US, EU, IMF and who knows what else. Not to be underestimated is the revelations about child prostitution, organ harvesting and even child slavery that would be absolutely gobsmacking.

    But we have to be clear here, even if Putin was fighting a war against ZOG like Hitler was in 1939, and he is not, and even if Putin does manage to uncover all this dirt before Zelensky and the Jewish Kahal destroy the evidence, which he won’t, the likelihood of Putin actually making the dirt public is as close to zero as the likelyhood of Trump “Locking her up” if he gets re-elected for a second term.

    Hitler and the German army uncovered truck loads of incriminating documents after the invasions of Poland and especially France. Secret Freemason documents were put on display. US conspiracies to drag Germany and all of Europe into world wars were revealed. Yet all was ignored by the wartime propaganda organs in the US, UK and USSR. After the war it was all covered up in a bluster of “Holocaust” and other atrocity porn.

    So even if Putin tried to expose all the grave crimes against humanity committed by the ZOG cabal of US, UK, NATO and all of the commonwealth, none of it would ever be allowed to be made public enough that the brain-clotted and cattle tagged goyim would understand what has really happened over the last century.

On February 26, the US Embassy in Ukraine rushed to delete all documents about 11 Pentagon-funded bio-laboratories in Ukraine from its website. All these documents (now deleted by the Embassy), you can read HERE.
    In October 2021, the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) of the U.S. Department of Defense published on the U.S. government procurement website an additional agreement on “combating highly dangerous pathogens. The document concerns the final stage of work on the launch of two bio-laboratories in Ukraine: in Kiev and Odessa. The additional agreement covers the equipping and training of personnel and commissioning of the facilities. The cost of the work is 3.6 million dollars, but some figures in the document are hidden for reasons of secrecy. According to the document, the laboratories were more than 90 per cent ready. However, the projects’ completion was delayed up to seven months from the date of signing the document (July 2021), thus to the end of February 2022:

    The Soviets carved up Poland with Hitler, because the West incited them.

    They massacred 22,000 Polish leaders at Katyn because the West incited them.

    They let their army rape its way across Eastern Europe on the way to defeating Germany because the West incited them.

    They sat back and let the Germans crush the Warsaw Uprising – which was meant to help the Soviets – because the West incited them.

    They turned Eastern Europe into a prison camp for 45 years because the West incited them.

    And now Vlad the Imp is invading Ukraine because NATO – which has not taken one single acre of Russian land in 30+ years – incited him.

The fission signatures that unmistakably tie these detonations back to South Africa however justice will not be pursued in the midst of the absolute chaos that will immediately follow.

    America received oil products from Russia last year accounting for around 21% of its oil imports. As of November of last year Russia was supplying America with diesel oil to help with its shortage. It may still be supplying diesel.

    If Russia sanctions imports of oil to America this would cause a spike in prices at the pumps. It could then refuse to accept US dollars for its products citing “Swift” as a complication. I think this could cause some problems for the US.

Putin has the means to cut off critical minerals and gases needed to sustain the West’s supply chain for semiconductor chips”. In short, Moscow’s control over key strategic minerals could give Russia leverage, akin to Opec’s energy stranglehold in 1973.

    Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 went missing due to the actions of Captain Shah. It was murder by Shah without possible doubt. This has been obvious since the finding of the flaperon. Because of the damage to the flaperon it is obvious that the flaperon was extended when the aircraft hit the water. That could be the case only if the aircraft was under pilot control when the aircraft hit the water. The only way in which the flaps can be extended is by manual physical movement of the flap lever.

  177. It is becoming clearer that Russia is not so much at war with Ukraine as she is locked in an existential struggle to avoid the fate of Yugoslavia. A viewpoint from India on US treachery and what it might lead to is at https://www.indianpunchline.com/india-shouldnt-miss-world-war-pointer/

    Putin is not going to tolerate shipments of German or other weapons into Ukraine to kill Russian servicemen. What is really chilling is that for the power addicts who run our country, provoking another general European war would just mean winning more market share for themselves. If they could arrange to have another powerful economic rival, the EU, vanish in radioactive dust clouds, they would be quite pleased with their accomplishment. As the British PM said long ago, this country has no permanent national allies, only permanent national interests.

    I am not sure when exactly it happened, but if it did happen after annexation of Crimea and Putin’s attack on Ukraine in Donbass region, it gave NATO the green light to proceed with adjustment of their defense doctrine accordingly. Fair Chance, Fair Fight, but when a character shows up with a weapon hidden in his sleeve, rules change.

    “The core issue: energy, control of energy.”

    Absolutely, but this is not the complete picture.

    The issue is control of all resources via either drawdown (but minerals, FF, even rare metals to produce solar panels, etc. are running out) or takeover, of both other species’ and other human groups’ resources. These include not only energy sources but water, soil, and others, even breathable air.

    Lebensraum 2.0.

    The contest is heating up. Lots and lots and lots of resources are being wasted in the struggle between groups of humans to prolong their own survival/sell-by date.

    This is exactly as William Catton predicted, in Overshoot.

    There is a reason why NATO was formed in the first place. The Soviets occupied large parts of Europe and built an iron curtain to keep their citizens inside this workers’ paradise. Those who were occupied are not grateful for the experience and will do what they can to eliminate future Russian occupations. The Soviets ruled with an iron fist. Basic liberties were crushed. The world rejoiced when the iron curtain fell except for a few Russian supporters like Cuba, North Korea and China. Russians and their allies represent what is worst in humanity.

    There has been no NATO attack on Russia. Mr. Putin would like to threaten nations with defensive weapons. Should Russia be disarmed because their weapons potentially threaten neighbors? A great Russian empire is not in the forseeable future. It is a middle power with declining populations and an underperforming economy. Threatening nuclear attacks is an empty threat.

    Overrunning a neighboring nation was sordid. They are shooting missiles and artillery into cities. Europe can live without Russian fuel and Russian goods. Let Russia become a Chinese client state, until China decides to take the land and resources of Russia.

It is paper production for the purpose of paper production. The German sanctions on Russian banks for example have fine print. (They all have).

    Your logic has more holes than a block of Swiss cheese. Sloppy, very sloppy. Kaliningrad is Russian territory, they can do whatever the hell they want there.

    The history of Kaliningrad city may be divided into four periods: the Old Prussian settlement known as Twangste before 1255; the Polish city of Królewiec from 1454 to 1455 and then fief of Poland from 1456–1657; the German city of Königsberg from 1657 to 1945 ; the Russian city from 1945.

    If Kaliningrad is Russian, then Crimea is Ukrainian. Your logic has more holes as my kitchen sink sponge.

    Agree. The most stupid mistake committed by Putin in his entire tenure as leader of Russia and probably his entire life. Something that could well terminate his career. Not even in my weirdest most absurd flights of imagination i even conceived the notion that he would dare to do something so harebrained. Even NATO knew better than to invade Serbia in 1999, even when they had the muscle to do it, complete superiority, because if one thing we have learnt from two world wars is that YOU DONT INVADE AN EUROPEAN NATION, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE ANOTHER EUROPEAN NATION, YOU DONT INVADE AN EUROPEAN NATION, PERIOD. What he got now is his own Vietnam right next door with chances for WW3.

    The only explanation that I have for his unholy decision to go with a full scale invasion lies in the natural overreaction of the guy who has taken too much crap from bullies in the schoolyard and who finally explodes, like in Columbine. Or more appropriate, like the would be lover who has been trying to get the attentions of the lady he worships (The “West” in his case) for too long and who has received only contempt, derision and humiliation in return, and who finally explodes when he realises he will never see his dream come true and do something crazy. Sorry Vlad, a simple “Go to Hell, betch” would have done it. Just a few hundred missiles on military installations, missiles sites, command posts would have have been enough to carry the message. But going all out and take Kiev…?

    Problem for them, that much of the rest of the world isn’t going along with sanctions (for example China, India, South America and the Middle East is ambivalent/against). That really only leaves the NWO with the hopeless case 5 eyes and an increasingly troubled Western Europe.

    …or cut Russia off from SWIFT would be to pull the pkug on their own…

    In few superficial mentions, cutting out Russia (and China, another victim of finance with a taste for vengeance) of SWIFT is diminishing the West’s potential for skimming transactions. A fraction of transactions less, and less fees and “administrative costs”, less “clients” or “customers” for the SWIFT boutique to be accumulated into repurchases of power.

    Since the powerful are behind the scenes dependent on these sorts of scams(parasitical transactions skimming) to define their legitimacy of extreme wealth and status in society, it would be a dumb thing to do. It would diminish transaction volume, legitimacy, analytic s potential, all these neural pathways that ultimately lead to invisible power.

    Transactions of goods, however, energy and other, would continue. The SWIFT layer on top here-of is little more then a database, some proprietary hardware, encrypted messaging. The total volume of transactions passing through the SWIFT bottleneck would diminish. Again bad for “business” for the international state-less finance trade. Revenue out of similar financial scams(ask M. Hudson the in house economist @unz) allows to pay the whole of the government apparatus of the West, buy the political jesters and spoke-persons staff, pays for the media propaganda, the judiciary and congress, in short half of the middle classes are in servitude by implementing such schemes upon the rest of the world.

    I strongly suspect that off-shoring gains by international shoal jumping stateless oligarchs does harm Russia strongly. Would it be such a “thing” to Putin that the SWIFT corroborator would be put on hold(London?)?. Transaction systemics and regular fair banking is not rocket science. Russia must be ready to replace electronic book-keeping a la SWIFT as such? Fecesbook and Google, who-else have heavier logistics.

    If really the West cuts off all Russia financial transactions (origin and destiny), we will never know as a first, and ultimately Putin might well decide good riddance. The real reason for the West to do so could well be: forcing upon Putin the proposition of the West being ready to cede partial control and transparency to Russia concerning Russian transactions. This would find common ground between Russia and the West, depending on how strongly Putin is bent on doing away with his own off-shoring parasitic class. It would under a new status quo advance the inevitable global agenda. Putin is as much a globalist at core(this is my personal opinion). What matters to him is being taken seriously and Russia, his fief, being part and parcel of the global agenda. The Covid deal was a precursor.

    NATO is directly intervening in the Ukraine war by providing military equipment worth many millions of \$, and by provoking Putin through onerous sanctions (Lukashenko has warned of WWIII if they keep sanctioning Russia). That military equipment isn’t limited to rifles, bullets and antitank missiles. Josep Borrell stated EU countries will provide Ukraine with ‘FIGHTER JETS’ under Brussels funding (the money of European people used against Russia)!

  229. allow me to simply some of the nonsense that is going on here.

    It’s fine that Russia objects to the Ukraine joining NATO.

    So what they object. The Ukraine, Russia, The US, And the EU countries are sovereign states and as such have the right to join whatever club they so choose.

    Russia’s conniption fit about NATO is over the top. Since when have any of you walked up to some one and said if hang with this person i don’t like — i am going to beat you up

    That demand changed everything unfortunately. And them’s a fight I am not woke. OI am not in any liberals camp about relations out of wedlock, transgender hot buttons. feminists, climate change global warming same relatoal conduct —

    I opposed iraq, afghanistan and paid a price — still paying. I was sure our gambits in Syria, libya and elsewhere were out of bounds . . .

    but this is not that — this is russia saying who can be in relations with who —–

    The Ukraine is no threat to Russia what goes in the ukraine among its ethnic divisions are issues that the ukrainians need o work out —- and since the government of the Ukraine did not invite Russian troops as did Crimea — this act in my view is a bridge too far

    Sure our meddling created so e real issues in the Ukraine . . . but anyone who thinks that the russian were not meddling is operating in fanasy land. — point is the US nor the EU felt compelled to invade the ukraine to force them to choose who their pals are —

    should there be concerns about a nuclear exchange — always — should that be a source to cower in the closet –

    i disagree
    I like Pres Putin, think he’s as sharp as a tack and sharper — has outmanuvered the US political leadership repeatedly in the last twenty years —-

    but here I think he is mistaken and don’t give whoodi who among the Russian rough necks pushed him to do it.

    And by the way — NATO’s choice is overdue — and it is correct.

    I think Putin has has enough of bullshit diplomacy. He’s now no longer asking, he’s telling.

    Ukraine is going to be a neutral country with no military but with an alignment with Russia. The Ukrainian people won’t be saddled with all the nonsense military costs because for any small country in the proximity of a larger and more powerful neighbor, having a military for the expressed purpose of fending off that neighbor is idiocy.

    NATO may disappear. I certainly hope so. I further hope that the Europeans wake up and throw the US off their continent. Each European state should figure out their own security arrangements and the smart ones will become neutral and dump the concept of a military that’s intended to fight wars. The Chinese have the right idea; trade with everyone and through those trade arrangements bring stability to the relationship.

    The US is intent on conflict. They keep building \$13Billion aircraft carriers in an era of hypersonic missiles.

The Clown and zionist baby killers in occupied land are working together offering I S R A E L as an mediator to strike PEACE between Ukraine and Russia. Is Putin that stupid to accept such an offer where is going to improve Israel’s image against its victims? If he accepts this insult then Putin will be discarded as a zionist servant and will be thrown into the GARBAGE bin. Then the majority of people accept the fact that Putin is in Syria to help the criminal tribe to help himself. If you read the clown’s biography, you will notice that he has been brought to power for certain goals. He is not there to help people of Ukraine, but promotes the interest of the tribe and ‘world government’.
    He created and starred in a comedy series, ‘Servant of the People.’ His character, a high-school history teacher, is surreptitiously recorded by one of his students as he passionately rants against the tyranny of corruption in his nation. Without campaigning the teacher is elected president of Ukraine.
    Entertainers who enter politics are treated with suspicion, because they are experts at the most dangerous part of the job, the manipulation of mass emotion.
    And in Ukraine, any outsider who rises to power engenders even greater suspicion because the assumption is that they must be doing the bidding of some shadowy force or other.

    Israel offers to mediate a ceasefire between Russia and Ukraine

    The call came two days after Zelensky called Bennett and asked him for a mediation.
    Putin noted that the Russian delegation is in the Belarusian city of Gomel and is ready for negotiations with representatives of Kyiv. Zelensky rejected the offer to hold talks in Belarus saying it was not neutral territory.Bennett is the only zionist politician who has spoken to Putin in recent days. Israel maintains good relations with both Ukraine and Russia. An Israeli official said that Israel notified the Biden administration ahead of the phone call between Bennett and Putin and briefed the U.S. afterward about what was discussed.
    The Kremlin said in a statement that Putin and Bennett discussed the situation in Ukraine during their phone call, which was initiated by the Israeli side. Putin and Bennett agreed to maintain contact.
    An Israeli official said Bennett told Putin he is concerned about the situation in Ukraine and the possibility the fighting will escalate and lead to grave ‘humanitarian damage.’
    The mass murderer zionist Bennett kills Palestinian children while farts on ‘humanitarian damage’, but now he is trying to use their Jewish son, the CLOWN, to promote an apartheid entity’s image. Shame on you PUTIN if you accept a baby killer as your mediator. Then people have zero respect for as a zionist stooge.
    Initially refusing to hold peace talks in Moscow’s ally Belarus, Zelensky agreed later Sunday that the Ukrainian delegation would meet with the Russian delegation without preconditions on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border.
    Due to zionist policy in Ukraine where let to invasion of Russia and gave the Mafia tribe moment of opportunity to promote a CLOWN as a hero, now the clowns’ talent in other area has been surfaced.

    This war is a regime change operation. An Anglo-Zionist plan to overthrow Putin and install someone like Boris Yeltsin who will drink vodka while the Zionists loot the country.

    Just to clarify for those who are not familiar. The belligerents consist of the following hierarchy, with the most powerful on top:

    1. Israel (Zion)
    2. USA (Zionist control: 100%. Leader of the Anglo-Zionists)
    3. UK (Zionist control: 90%. Deputy Anglo-Zionist)
    4. Canada, Australia, NZ (Zionist control: 70-90%. Tag along Anglo-Zionists)
    5. EU/NATO (Controlled and led by the Anglo-Zionists)

    This war is, in my opinion, more significant than 9/11. That was a Anglo-Zionist declaration of war on Islam. Zionist control of the Anglo countries means that they plan and fight wars for the benefit of Israel, not their own interests. After spending 20 years and \$10 trillion killing Muslims they’ve achieved zero benefit for themselves. Only Israel has benefitted with more land and security.

    Russia with Putin in charge could not be controlled by the Jews. So he had to go. Because they can’t do a color revolution in Russia they have to bring down its economy so that Russians will overthrow him themselves.

    There can be absolutely no doubt that Russia was baited on purpose to invade Ukraine. Every time Russia said they will not invade, the Jewish comedian, Zelensky, would issue an even more outrageous statement, like joining NATO, arming Ukraine with nuclear weapons etc. His mission was to provoke an invasion and now it is to cause as much bloodshed as possible. Once the Russians take over he’ll move to his true homeland and live in Tel Aviv.

    If they fail to overthrow Putin then this can turn into a nightmare for the Anglos-Zionists. Killing Muslims was a turkey shoot. They could kill millions at their leisure and it was quite enjoyable. But now they may have to deal with a wounded and angry bear armed with continent destroying nuclear weapons.

    Everything will now depend on Putin’s overthrow. If it doesn’t happen then Zion will be in for a rough ride.

    The ((Jews)) support these poisonous liberal policies in the nations, not in Israel. Because they want the nations to destroy themselves to the point that they are slaves for the “chosen,” or biomass. The shabbos goy and crypto-((Jews)) support these policies because they make a lot of money from them and from liberalism in general. The liberals and “conservative” neocons with no self control are just useful idiots, or profiting from Big Gov and the Fed Ponzi.

    What to do? Get the ((Jews)) and their tools OUT. But… Oy! Oy! The economy will shut down! Fine. An economy that requires human biomass to survive is an economy built by parasites and misanthropes. Turn the parasites and misanthropes into biomass if they like it so much.

    1962 simply is not applicable here.

    It is not applicable, but not because of the role of the nukes but for something that is closely related. It is not applicable because Putin broke a cardinal rule of the animal kingdom that rules the societal behaviour of all creatures from insects to human beings. The Rule of This Is My Turf So Respect It. I was still a kid during the Missile crisis of 1962 and yet I was able to learn this lesson from it, ONE THAT SEEMS TO ME PUTIN NEVER LEARNT OR EVEN KNEW ABOUT IT. That is a why as early as a decade ago I commented in every forum i could that Putin could turn not only into the most disastrous leader in Russian History but also the most dangerous man in this day and age. Because, as I said, for an entire decade he has acted as if oblivious of this basic rule that allows different animal species and also different nations and world powers to live with each other without one exterminating the other. You have your turf and the other guy respects it, period. After October 1962 the U.S. and the USSR agreed on what were the turfs of each one so no more ugly incidents as such could happen again. “Mine is the Americas”, said the U.S. “the Warsaw Pact nations is yours, the M.E. is a shared land with both having our allies/proxies and the rest of the world is up for grasps”. That is what allowed civilisation to go on to this day. Sometimes there were incidents that came to disturb the general order of things (the Nicaraguan and Iranian Revolution for example) but the overall arrangement stood. When Gorbachev and Reagan ended the Cold War and the USSR disappeared, the West, i.e. the U.S. decided the entire world belonged to it now, so reneging on the promises to Gorbachev they started a slow but gradual march towards the Russian frontier. In an orderly world the Russian leader would have put his foot firmly down at some point and made very clear that right there was where the NATO juggernaut had to stop, where Russia’s turf started. The beyond was forbidden for them. That point had to be, at least according to my own logic, when the U.S. NATO was about to attack a traditional Russian ally. There were at least three instances when Russia could have done so, marked her turf but they didn’t do it in any of those three. They didn’t do it when NATO bombed Serbia, their own Slav brothers. They didn’t do a thing with the excuse that their own country was in disarray, which didn’t take out the fact anyway that it still had her entire nuclear arsenal or most of it. Then not only Moscow stood aside when the U.S. attacked Iraq but it even approved the attack..!. Then it came Libya where a docile Putin did once again what the U.S. was demanding him to do, only for him to complain later that he had been duped…! What, was he still a six years old when they asked him to help destroy Libya under the excuse of a phony no fly zone…? And THIS is the world class grand master chess player…? But the real surrender, and the worst, the most lethal, is when he refused to back Yanukovich in 2014 when the Ukrainian president was desperately asking for military aid to be able to crush the U.S. engineered coup. He couldn’t be bothered while he was having his ego feast in front of the world in Sochi, doing what he had said many times was the main priority in his foreign policy, TO HAVE GOOD RELATIONS WITH THE U.S. The same reason he gave to explain why he didn’t put his foot down in Syria in 2011 when still a civil war could have been averted and hundreds of thousands of Syrian lives could have been saved. I have always thought that the main priority of a Russian or Soviet leader in foreign policy is the defence and the protection of his country and her interests and it was pretty weird hearing Mister Putin saying over and over again that his was another one, TO HAVE GOOD RELATIONS WITH ONE COUNTRY THAT HATES RUSSIA. This is the disastrous record in foreign policy of the man his many followers still hail as the world Savior and a brilliant mind…! Any leader of any country could be allowed to be that disastrous in his foreign policy but not one a the few who have the button on a nuclear arsenal capable of destroying civilisation.

    Meanwhile, during negotiations Russia will get all of their requirements about missiles and sovereignty for eastern Ukraine. Ukrainians, if they have any sense will ally with Russia and allow Russia to put their missiles in Ukraine because the west hates their guts and merely uses them as another tool.

    You do. appear to be up on quite a few important matters. Perhaps you have overlooked the fact that Ukraine, as it currently exists on the map, and in reality, is not a nation. A nation is always comprised of people with similar backgrounds and interests. Lenin added huge numbers of ethnic Russians to the Ukraine Soviet Socialist Republic as an ADMINISTRATIVE measure—brother Bolsheviks and all that. Most of eastern and southern Ukraine is RUSSIAN and those majorities would prefer to hook up with Mama Bear once again.

    Stalin added to the Ukraine state the completely undigestible Galician area which had been under the Polaks, the Lithuanians and the Austrians for centuries. Their values have been westernized over those many generations. Even their religious affiliations have become Uniate, a bastardized hybrid between Orthodox rituals and Roman Catholic adherence. They should receive their independence, that would eliminate the primary fascist element from Ukraine proper as all too many of those deracinated people liberally detest Poles, Russians, authentic Ukrainians and even the Jews with whom they make common cause in this artificial nation-state.

    Also chopped off by Stalin from their native affiliations are hundreds of thousands of Romanians, Hungarians and Ruthenians. They should be afforded opportunity to go their own way. They are NOT Ukrainians.

    In 1954 Nikita Khrushchev again, administratively added Crimea, heavily Russian, to the Ukraine SSR. Those people voted in a 95% majority to rejoin the Russian Federation and were duly accepted by Mama Bear.

    Finally, Ukraine proper, centering around Kiev and somewhat southwards, would be an independent NATIONAL entity, likely to affiliate in an informal confederation with Byelorussia and Mama Bear as a brotherly eastern Slavic mutual support system. My take is that Putin and his wise advisors are giving such a logical proposition every due consideration.

  285. @EliteComminc.

    I agree with you that analogies are not helpful to frame the current situation. So one has to look at the whole context of the last decade and that includes a number of color revolution attempts, the US biolabs popping up everywhere in Asia while epidemics start in China (chickens, pigs, Covid), the military agression against the Donbass, the threat of Zelensky to develop nuclear bombs. Then Biden says that Putin sees imaginary threats. From a country that has invaded or created trouble in so many other countries, threats are far from being imaginary I would say.

    Three-quarters of my ancestry hailed from Norway, once the most free and liberated nation in Western Europe, largely because they never had an aristocratic class which lorded it over downtrodden peasantry as was, and to some degree is, the common history of most of continental Europe and even neighboring Sweden and to a lesser extent, Denmark.

    Face it, Putin played a big gamble and everything points to the fact that he may have lost it. Now even his “friend” Erdogan may close the Bosphorus to his Navy, I dont know in what universe it is an even moderately good idea to launch even a partial invasion of Ukraine when all the Ukrainians had to do was to cry to the world for help while pointing at him as the big bad bear, when he could have still done considerable damage to their military capabilities, while sending at the same time a strong and powerful message to all NATO nations, by simply flinging them a few hundred missiles that would have left the Kiev regime naked in the rain and looking silly. So whats the point of going all the way to Kiev. what for, for heavens sake…? Now the Russia Treasury is haemorrhaging money, Russian casualties are mounting in men and material while Putin’s image in the world descend to Marianas depths and the stature of the Ukrainian showman Zelensky has reached Churchillian levels in the imagination of the Western populace. I dare say Putin lost his gamble in a big way, even in ways he never imagined he could lose and this is only the beginning. I saw him today in a speech he gave and the top brass behind was looking at him in a very sour way, not the way you would want the first soldier of your country to look at you if you were him.

    Putin took an humongous risk bluffing that his own brand of shock and awe would obliterate the capabilities of the Ukrainian military and that at the same time would freeze in terror the Ukrainian populace so the march onward to Kiev would be a walk and HE LOST ON BOTH COUNTS. The Ukrainian military didn’t fall in pieces and, instead of freezing, civilians took arms and defended their cities. That is why I said in another post and I said it in Capitals. IN EUROPE YOU DONT INVADE NATIONS, YOU DONT INVADE COUNTRIES, PERIOD. Europeans are warriors by nature, they dont surrender easily and the most likely thing is that they will fight back. Putin should have known that better than anyone.

    As for bullies in the schoolyard, is it Columbine the right way to deal with them, endure the abuse until you cannot tolerate anymore and then bring a machine gun and shoot dead everybody? Or, isn’t the right way to learn martial arts and give them a painful life lesson…?

But I’d say that permitting the pill would have come to far less had it not happened with a background of deliberate cultural subversion, particularly that of feminism and decrying the environmental effects of the fertility of Europeans (“the West”).

    Putin apparently considered it enough of a threat to place his nuclear deterrent forces on high alert.

    This is not apparent. He elevated the nuclear deterrence to the second level of four. This was a tactical yet aggressive move, an attempt at intimidation. There was no legitimate rationale for this. The corresponding NATO nuclear alert still remains at its lowest level.

    Note the official explanation in the Yahoo News piece:

    Putin said anyone who tried to “hinder us” would face “such consequences that you have never encountered in your history.”

    After reading this and understanding how widely one can interpret the word “hinder“, it is clear that this is an unambiguous and dangerous threat. He has thus transformed himself into a mad-man or is playing the madman political card, often associated with Nixon, reflecting a state of desperation.

    Very telling that you put so much weight on his presumptive motives. Whatever reputation he still had has essentially collapsed. You seem to be another of his committed devotees. We will see when will be the next time, if ever, that he shows himself in public, for he will soon be widely reviled.

Evidently not, or you would know that Ron Unz blocks all comments by “Vaxx-hoaxers”. After having a few of your comments blocked, you would understand why we need the cover of a Mike Whitney thread in order to present new facts and evidence, discover other new information, and debate how the most current Plandemic propaganda relates to the most current ZOG war propaganda, without the annoying and harmful “moderation” of Ron Unz.

    If you spent as much time connecting data dots as many other commenters do on UR, you would also be aware that the networking of this data is highly temporal. When I look back on data points from weeks or months ago, I often miss how their relation it time adds important evidence and information.

    As a prime example, this Ukraine crises was created from nothing in the space of a few weeks just as the Ottowa protests were reaching a crescendo and just as freedom convoys were departing to Brussels and Paris, and simultaneous to a complete collapse in the “vaccines are safe and effective” narrative. In a year, after months of distracting headlines and new false narratives, the synchronicity of the events will no longer be apparent, and many clues as to their interrelatedness will be lost.

    Many people, like yourself apparently, are 100% convinced that Putin is operating completely independent from WEF/BIS/IMF/WB/ZOG. We are at a certainly at a critical moment in history.

    To me it appears that this “invasion” serves many masters,
    – Wipe the Covid Narrative Collapse off of the headlines
    – Cause more indebtedness for ALL of Europe
    – Increase profits for the ((MIC))
    – The only good goyim is a dead goyim
    – get the phase 3 of the great reset moving in gear: operation starvation

    In so many ways the invasion of Ukraine rhymes with the invasion of Poland. One critically important additional way that they rhyme is the question of whether both Hitler and Putin were/are patsies. Just as with Hitler, the chances are that we will never know whether Putin is a WEF patsy. If however, Putin cleans out Ukraine, puts all the Khazarians on trial, and simultaneously causes the collapse of the IMF dollar fiat system, then we will know that Putin wasn’t a patsy and was truly acting on his own accord.

    If, however, Ukraine turns into a quagmire, a Stalingrad, and then Putin is forced to commit suicide in a bunker, then we will never know for sure.

The –internet” clean, direct, filter, censure, bias, enforce, infuse systemics– seem to be in charge as much as to what propaganda reaches the public. The public being quite content to murk about in the cow dung offered. Goebbels would have been proud. Even at the highest layered level(least interesting), R. Unz is scanning to his satisfaction his own net traffic –the middle man indulgence– and extracting nuggets of information to further game his own audience.

    Alternative intended programmers and technology thinkers, –by nature?– again missed a chance to experiment in a real live event with distributed file systems and distributed(dispersed) data. Bypassing the dns addressing that defines the internet, the ability to create routed alternative(hardware) technologies. Ukraine was, and still is a perfect operations theater for such a measurable lab experiment. The “man in the middle” service rules, as much in SWIFT as in Fecesbook.

    The public still is convinced of the good guys – bad guys proposition, and will not comprehend the relation between poisoned data and garbage out, “annalistic” end conclusions. What matters is having an opinion, erroneous wit –or twit, tweet–, any opinion, so as to define one’s personality and creating venues for individualism, personality. This aspect of human nature –hardwired–, encouraging further manipulation.

    The outliers suffer one more defeat. As a victory to the corrupted power circles, talent within the millennium generation is further wasted as intended. These kids have no environment to mature in, organize in. Another big win for globalism.

    With all the information about the Kremlin stinkbug available in public domain, being delusional is a personal choice nowadays.

    Indeed, it’s all a matter of perspective and intellectual integrity, because we get to choose who we listen to and who we believe.

    It’s hardly any secret that most all mainstream Western media, and 100% of the Tech giant social media, is owned and controlled lock, stock and barrel by Satanic Globalists who basically want 90% of us dead and the surviving 10% ground down underfoot forever as their slaves and livestock for Satanic rituals.

    So who you gonna trust? Are you feeling lucky?

    To take another angle, let’s recall that old adage, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”.

    Hillary Clinton absolutely seethes with hatred for Vladimir Putin, as do just about all current Western government Globalist stooges and the likes of George Soros, no less.

    Anyone who puts the scare up those vermin, I tend to take a liking to.

    Meanwhile, let’s consider President Bashar al-Assad of Syria – a good man, kind, patient, with a heart of gold and burning love for the Syrian people. The kind of guy who drives around in a humble little car without any security detail to meet and greet his people. The kind of guy we’d be honoured to have around for a barbecue.

    President Assad and President Putin are good friends, and rightly so. President Putin saved Syria from hordes of American trained, funded and armed head-chopping “moderate terrorists” who were hell-bent on turning Syria into what NATO had already done to Lybia (paid mercenary “moderate terrorists” who the USA then ferried to Afghanistan to stir up even more mischief). Sometimes it helps to have friends that can be relied on. President Putin’s the man.

    Now NATO with the Empire at its back is apparently aiming to bring “freedom & democracy” to Ukraine – again – after everything went so well with the staged “Colour Revolution” back in 2014 with “F*ck the EU” Victoria “Cookies” Nuland, with the Empire determined to pump Ukraine full of armaments, military bases, level 4 biolabs and strategic nukes right on Russia’s border.

    Sounds like a real cracker of a “nation building” exercise.

    From what information I can glean from the public domain, Ukraine has been on a suicide mission for the Empire ever since 2014. Not much glory for Ukraine if it’s turned into a smoldering wasteland on the path to the Empire’s final fiery victory over Russia.

    IMO if Ukraine manages to come out of the current Russian intervention in one piece, then it’s truly dodged a bullet. The looming alternative was to die for the glory of the Empire.

    Putin should have used air power and stand off weapons to destroy all the Ukrainian military hardware and infrastructure. Putting boots on the ground west of the Donbas region wasn’t a smart move.

    Being timid also isn’t helping. He should have concentrated on surrounding Kiev after crippling the airports and forget about the rest of the country. Stay out of Kiev and just make sure nothing moves in or out. Any Ukrainian fighters away from Kiev would have come back to Kiev, thus leaving the rest of the country untouched. I don’t see the point of capturing the smaller cities and all the destruction and loss of life involved on both sides.

    He could have protected the Donbas with troops and weaponry, but east of the line. By going after Kiev only, he would have drawn Ukrainian troops away from the Donbas region.

    That’s why I favor aliyah. They can be somebody else’s problem.

    The problem with supporting aliyah is you are transformed into a tool of the Zionists, which puts you right back where you started. I prefer Moses’ solution of executing Golden Calf Grifters for treason and crimes against humanity (selling the people into slavery). Making Satanists “somebody else’s problem” is just kicking the can down the road and will inevitably come back to haunt your nation. Not to mention, most Grifters won’t leave at all, and will simply disguise themselves as “liberals” and neocons.

    Moses big mistake was also taking half measures, which ultimately got Jesus killed.

    …Russian casualties are mounting in men and material…

    One of the reasons for this is that many Russian soldiers involved in the invasion may not have the zeal to fight. It appears that the general public has been bombarded with more war propaganda than the soldiers themselves.

    An interesting video purports to show captured soldiers from the 25th brigade who claim they had not even been told that they were heading into a real attack. They said they though that they were participating in a drill, which did indeed take place beforehand.

    It seems there was no prior mental preparation for the real deal. This is similar to the technique used by Mossad in the July 2005 London false-flag bombing, while the annual G8 meeting hosted by Tony Blair was occurring in rural Scotland; a drill intended to deal with a purportedly fictional situation transformed itself into an actual live event under the same premises. That kind of modus operandi was also an element of the September 2001 bombing in lower Manhattan to confuse the air defense and radar flight controllers.

    Likely many thousands of other soldiers were deceived and demoralized in this manner, and they are probably upset about this. They understand they are being used and lack the motivation to fight for a what they know is not a just cause because they do not necessarily see the Ukrainians as enemies. Surely many now feel shame. By contrast, Ukrainian soldiers are much more prepared on their own territory.

    Your comment is very to the point, thanks. I would add that control is the key word. This in itself creates loops, the finance loop, the war-military loop, the technological loop, the political one in trying to control hard resources, access to these resources, long term control of these sources, defining the value of ditto, to game resources which are defining the vertical strata of societies. Thus we get to complex society that is not but chaos society. Un-sustainability, shortening of the future for the species is rule.

    My compassionate impression is that the current crop of what goes for “elite” is trash, came to power administered by trash, is incompetent and, at the top of Western societies, each and every one of these “Democracies”, there must be integral eradication of the top layer which is compromised above thresh-hold if there is such a stupid ambition to a redress. Take top administrators of societies in the West, one must feel deep shame for public figures as Macron, Marc Rutte, Francois Michel(little Obelix), Ura von der Leyen, Boris Johnson, sad remnant Biden etc. to be posing as the best and the brightest of Western society and pushing a nihilistic script. Truth itself is measured to a time-line that often does not span to the end of the week, and is mostly a tweet away.

    William Catton indeed is one of the very rare thinkers that has put the core issue in the open. One of the few intellectuals, that if they had balls and morals would auto censure their own scribbles, papers, books, and correct the nullities referencing their “work”. It is not wrong to be wrong, it is wrong to persist, and benefit of wrong. N’est-ce pas Pinker, Fukuyama, Chomsky, et al.? Their “detachment” is rather existential angst, their penthouses(careers), and laying their claws on their grad students all too willing to oblige makes their day.

    In the shadows of power –power *is* obscure by definition– the very few are hard at work to make new assessments, but seem to be stumped within their own blob of the larger power structures.

    It takes a Xi and a Putin to capture the day, while the goals in the long term are defined as another round of cancerous growth which in consequence will uptick, and disqualify an even larger portion of mankind and human potential, shorten the lease on the future. And mind you, these are the more homogeneous power nuclei available. The West disqualifies almost in it’s integrity.

    In all, the above are enjoy-able phenomena, when detachment occurs. We live interesting times, and the speed of deployment from elephant to carcass is incrementing. Derivatives to net gains is deficitary in almost all fields –energy, of course being the prime one–. A nice shatter plot to be drawn, was it not that *all* data in the public domain are poisoned. The definition of smart has become a synonym of survival in the short run. –from the top of my head, not much time, thanks for your response–

    No argument from me save this one caveat. What the State Department did under Sec Clinton, along with the EU, and I assume NATO was not an invasion. Those manipulations, interventions were at the request aid and largely control of the Ukrainians. And I have no doubt that right alongside the matter were Russians agents, etc. aiding and manipulating their allies in the country —-

    The invasion changed the nature of the matter and one that must be confronted and sanctions are not enough.

    I didn’t claim to have any sources. I’m relating what I would do if I were in Putin’s shoes.

    He should have given TPTsB 30 days to remove all offensive weapons from Ukraine with the understanding that on day 31, Russia would use standoff weapons and air power to destroy anything that’s left. He should also have included a demand to roll back NATO to the nations it represented decades ago when the agreement was made to not expand NATO east.

    I would have included the common sense reminder to Poland, Romania, etc that they make themselves target by hosting an organization hostile to Russia and leave it to their imagination as to what that really means.

    Cementhead, you’re very good on a range of issues but you have much to learn about MH370.
    It seems everything you mentioned comes courtesy of the corrupt western msm – and you’ve lapped it up uncritically.

    MH370 was electronically commandeered from the ground (ie: NO input from Capt Shah at all since cockpit controls would’ve been disabled*), and then landed safely on the U.S military base on Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean.
    Of course, all passengers and crew were murdered.

    Whatever tell-tale aircraft component(s) were allegedly ‘found’ were planted there so as to reinforce the phony narrative about crashing into the ocean.

    (*The same technology was employed on 9/11. The original aircraft that were alleged to have impacted in NYC, Shanksville PA and the Pentagon, ie: AA11, UA175, UA93 and AA77, were commandeered using the Boeing Uninterruptible Auto Pilot technology and diverted to alternative airfields where they were landed. In their place, drone aircraft were substituted).

    Listen to the words of a Cee Cee Lyles, a flight attendant on UA93 that allegedly crashed in Pennsylvania.
    This call to her husband (left on his answering machine) was made from the GROUND.
    She was obviously made to read from a script saying the plane had been hijacked but still had the presence of mind to say: ‘It’s a frame’, in whispered tones at the end:

    Let me give you a clue as to the motives behind the MH370 and MH17 incidents with the following timelines:

    1) November 2013: Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal concludes and the Apartheid Israeli state and it’s murderous IDF are proven guilty of having carried out egregious human right abuses and outright genocide against the Palestinians.

    Not impressed by that, the Zio cabal orders immediate retribution.

    2) March 2014: MH370 disappears (allegedly) and is presumed crashed in the ocean.
    3) July 2014: MH17 is shot down by the Ukrainians – acting on behalf of their Zio controllers.

    Malaysia Airline (MAS) is owned and operated by the government of Malaysia.
    One aircraft down is bad publicity but after a few months, people tend to forget and it’s business as usual.
    However, TWO aircraft down in the space of a few months is catastrophic and no one will fly with MAS for love or money.

    MAS discounts tickets to well below cost to get bums on seats but aircraft continue to fly near empty and MAS haemorrhages many billions in the years that follow.
    Malaysian Airlines were previously carrying around 40% of inbound tourists but now much fewer are coming.
    The tourist industry [one of the major sources of hard currency] collapses and the country suffers countless billions in losses to its economy over subsequent years.

    Bottom Line: If you expose Zio malfeasance, you’ll be punished severely. This also serves as template for what might happen to you or your country if you don’t keep your mouth shut.

    Muammar Gaddafi and Hugo Chavez were not shy in exposing Zio mischief making.

    You are missing too much in your synopsis of Putin’s career as the Head of the new Russian Federation.
    1 – Putin had to start all over and with a completely broken country
    2 – Putin expelled not only the greedy oligarchs but Wall Street { no man has ever done that} and lived.
    3 – Putin had to forego development of a decent army in order to start revitalizing the economy which was a priority.

    Putin did use air power and missile strikes to destroy the Air Force, Navy, Air Defense Systems and Munitions Depot of the Ukrainian Military in the first day of the war, followed by battalions of ground troops serving as forward units to secure strategic assets all over Ukraine, encountering minimal resistance, in the second day of the war. By the third day, the Russian Special Forces had reached Kyiv, surrounded Kharkiv, captured Mariupol, encircled Donbass, seized Chernobyl, etc. Unlike the Americans, Putin wanted to avoid destroying cities and killing civilians with a ‘Shock and Awe’ type of attack reliant on air power alone. That would explain the entry of ground troops serving as forward units as early as the second day of the war.

    The Ukrainians were obviously caught off-guard by Putin’s surprise move to launch his Blitzkrieg by attacking their key military assets and seizing control over critical infrastructure such as airports, seaports, nuclear power plants, hydroelectric dams, etc. Putin had deliberately misled the Ukrainians by going through the motion of recognizing the independence of both the LPR and DPR while authorizing the deployment of the Russian Armed Forces as ‘peacekeepers’ in the Donbass, just a few days before launching his lighting-fast Blitzkrieg. That’s why the bulk of the Ukrainian Military were holed up in the Donbass where they were anticipating the Russian invasion. Instead of directly attacking the heavily armed and fortified forces of the Ukrainian Military in the Donbass, Putin launched a Pincer-style attack from the West and East of the Donbass, thereby surrounding the bulk of the Ukrainian Military entrapped there.

    In Kyiv, the Russians are now trying to evacuate civilians still living there, having already blown up the oil depot and gas pipelines near the Capital. The Russians seem intent on evacuating civilians out of Kyiv, Kharkiv, Donbass, etc., which are now surrounded by Russian infantry battalions, armored divisions, missile launchers, etc. The Russians have also deployed the TOS-1 MLRS which can launch thermobaric rockets that can effectively vaporize entire blocks.

    In short, I would describe Putin’s tactics — which aim to decapitate the leadership and defang the military of Ukraine while minimizing the destruction of property and deaths of civilians — as ‘careful’ rather than ‘timid’.

    They don’t know much about much, but are keen to learn, to develope a few life-skills and mature; process’s they are largely denied in mainstream society, as you rightly point out.

    You seem to have more detailed information than I have.

    The rest of the world is against Putin because he stomped through Ukraine with ground troops. They would have been pissed off regardless, but less so had he never put Russian boots on the ground west of the Donbas, IMO. Knocking out the airports, weapons depots, their military installations, etc, all over the country using only missiles and air power would, I think, have gotten him less of a visceral reaction.

    What’s done is done. I just hope he has the wherewithal to maintain the effort to reach a swift conclusion assuming no US or EU interference of any consequence. That some countries are stating they are going to send weaponry is a joke. How are they going to enter the country and who are they going to be handed to?

    I suspect that the US and NATO aren’t going to sit by and watch. I expect them to counter attack Russia and possibly nowhere near Ukraine. If I were Putin, at any escalation from outside force, I’d take out all the US assets illegally occupying Syria and any floating coffins in the Mediterranean. Now that the gloves have come off, the only deterrent to an ever increasing war is decisive action to show ‘you take out one of mine and I’ll take out 10 of yours’.

    All plans prior to the first shot being fired go out the window the second after. Once hostilities start, it’s action and reaction.

    Putin now has the northern area of the Black Sea as his own. I think he wants Ukraine completely disarmed and a neutral country but aligned with its northern neighbor. There was no legitimate gov’t in Ukraine since the US stuck its money and (((nose))) in. It was a place for the worst scum on the planet to loot its resources with Hunter and Brandon as examples.

    Putin has no choice now but to make sure Ukraine won’t become the liberal insane commune you mentioned.

    Since the Ruble is in trouble, I think it’s time for him to bring out the financial nuclear weapon known as gold. He needs to back the currency with gold for international transactions. That will help kill off the US’s sanction weapon since the Dollar would then be a naked fiat bullshit currency in comparison as would every other western currency.

    Also this may be the script the conscripts have been told to say.

    I am aware of this possibility; also the entire video could be faked. However, considering that the progress of the so-called “Special Military Operation” (Russian media are required to use this phrase for the invasion, which makes their RT programming sound even more ridiculous than it already is) has been much slower than anticipated by analysts, and has gotten bogged down in some spots, the presumptive lack of motivation by soldiers is surely a key factor.

    Such a deception by the leadership would explain this. I thought by putting it out somebody else might confirm its authenticity. I had heard that some Western reporters heard captured combatants tell the same story. It should also be obvious that such a war would not be popular with soldiers, so one could construe a rationale for not announcing this to them beforehand, including not wanting it to possibly be leaked to the public in light of persistent denials. (“Nobody is planning to invade Ukraine.“)

    I use the term Churchillian as it is regularly used and known. Many years ago I used to accept that he was the great man they said he was but then I knew about the real man and yes, quite a piece of work. But if someone has found a better word than the one that is already printed in the brains of the unwashed masses please tell me of it.

    In Eastern Europe and even Central Europe nations were formed out of pieces taken from here and there, contrary to what happened in South America for example where nations were established as whole entites and so they have remained for two centuries. So the same thing that has been said for Ukraine can be said for nations that dont exist anymore like Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia and for others that still exist. So when I wrote that IN EUROPE YOU DONT INVADE NATIONS I WASNT REFERRING TO THE NON’FACT THAT THEY ARE WHOLSEOME ENTITIES LIKE IN SOUTH AMERICA BUT TO THE REAL FACT THAT INVASIONS IN THAT PART OF THE WORLD HAVE A VERY HIGH POTENTIAL TO TRIGGER MAJOR MILITARY CONFLICTS LIKE THE ONES WE HAVE SEEN FOR THE LAST CENTURIES UP TO THIS DAY. TWO WORLD WARS AMONG THAM. If Brazil invades Paraguay and takes a chunk of it, or even the whole country, we can be sure it will make some big waves but it wont spill into a world war, let alone WW3 but that is a distinct possibility in any place in Europe.

    On the other hand, I see that the people who approve of this invasion of Ukraine by Russia seem much taken by the positive results they see to this moment out of this operation which blinds them to some extent of the price Russia will have to pay. And I mean NOT ONLY RUSSIA BUT ALSO HER WEAKER ALLIES. I have no doubt the U.S. and the EU will do whatever they can do to harm Russia and Russia”s interests abroad and some Russian friends will be standing in very shaky ground for the foreseeable future, espcially in Latin America. Because as I said, the Empire always strikes back and most of the time it striles back in Latin America. I still think that Putin should have simply sent Yanukovich the military aid Yanukovich was begging for in 2014 and let the Ukrainian themlseves to fix their own mess.

    Well with the price of oil and gas increasing as it is, Russia is getting paid twice as much as the cost of invasion. At this rate, he will be way ahead by easter (and the warm weather) if he does not in fact win too soon.
    It is unfortunate that he doesn’t have some others to take a swipe at and get the prices back to \$150 bbl. Georgia doesn’t count as no-one gives a shit what happens to it.
    Finland was a ‘possible’ but it already gets 90% of its’ energy from Russia and there is no real way for the west to feel obligated. The Finns don’t speak English and no-one outside Finland speaks Finnish.

    Many people, like yourself apparently, are 100% convinced that Putin is operating completely independent from WEF/BIS/IMF/WB/ZOG.

    Believe you me, I have never ever been convinced of that. In fact I have never understood Putin”s, I will not say interest but obssesion, of being accepted and respected by that West he worships so, or his desire to get Russia into NATO FGS…! Truth is, the only reason why Russia is not in NATO by now, according to credible sources, is that he didnt want to “get in line” like the rest, he didnt want to have to fill up an application and go through the admission process like it was “nation like those that dont matter” as said in his own words. At the beginning of his tenure Putin also declared that he was not only happy with a world dominated by the U.S. and the U.S. dollar but that such was the world he wanted…!

    It is clear that from the beginning Putin imagined as his ideal world one where the hegemon would be the U.S. and Russia a preferred ally and friend, as the same level as France and the U.K. THAT IS THE REAL PUTIN AND THE PUTIN WE ARE SEEING THESE DAYS IS THE BITTER LOVER WHO GOT TIRED OF BEING REJECTED, SCORNED, HUMILLIATED BY THE LADY HE HAD LOVED SO ALL THESE YEARS. That is the best portrait I can compose of the man out of his actions and of what has been his behavior for the last two decades. During this last decade I have heard him answer, when prodded to take stronger action in Syria, Eastern Europe, Libya, etc, etc, that the main priority of his foreign policy is to have good relation with the U.S. I dont think that in 1000 years there has been another Russian, Soviet, leader putting it that wat: that no, the national security of Russia, the welfare of her people, the defense of her borders against foreing intruders and invaders were not his main priority…but to be liked by her enemy…!

    You are on to something. Putin and Xi both have globalist agendas too. There is even a possibility that the agenda(of China and Putin’s Russia) might converge in solid long-term coordination. Why? Because globalism must be, the question is Who, What, Where, How that is disputed in power circles at any station.

    It is a long while now since the International Corporate & Finance Jew was the only one ambitioning control of the planet, and it’s substrate called the global population. Globalist policies are a must, or perish now. To any clear eyed observer, the “small business” approach to social strata, social balance, economics, and other psycho-farts of societal hocus pocus, is pollution up to the suffocation thresh-hold. That thresh-hold is well reached now, the goal and ambition of the very few is simply a matter of survival.

    The Putin hate and the emotional arousal as to his personality is just that. He is competing for his own global agenda. In my opinion, a man as Putin can only be brought down by breaking away any continuity in succession. That is going to be his Achilles heel. For now, except a lightning strike, this critter is solid. A dame and dandy in one.

    For the ambitious not part of the corrupted Western core, it would be wise to pray for the West and East giving themselves pain in their exchanges and blows, since the grey zone that obviously appears when the big dogs fight is the best playground for ambition and purpose to outliers of sorts. “Mad Max” slivers of mind and territory.

    Russia was certainly much more identified with their western peers, through geography, culture and trade. But the world has changed much since. Geography is vanquished by fast and large transport corridors, cultures are widely shared and tolerated in their differences, and trade… well, trade goes where there is money and products to exchange. This last one never had borders and limits, except for the other two constraints.

    It came at a huge cost to the West because Anglo “Christians” allowed ((Jews)) to set up ZOG right under their noses, and then ram itself down America’s throat.

    These “Christians” aren’t Christians. These “Whites” aren’t Whites. They’re whores to ZOG. ZOG does what it wants to its subjects, and it’s never in their own best interests. It’s in ZOG’s best interests, and when their goy subjects become inconvenient, they’re disposed of — just like “Nazis,” just like “Islamofascists,” just like they’re trying to dispose of “Ruskies.”

    If these “Christians” were really Christians, ZOG would have never gotten to first base. ZOG would have never gotten on the playing field. ZOG would have never been allowed to crawl out of the sewer.

  376. @RoatanBill

    Putin should have used air power and stand off weapons to destroy all the Ukrainian military hardware and infrastructure.

    But wasn’t this done, with the first day destroying of airports, major militar depots and banning airspace ? More than this would probably destroy too much civil infrastructures and hit civilians.

    Putting boots on the ground west of the Donbas region wasn’t a smart move.

    He could have protected the Donbas with troops and weaponry, but east of the line.

    This has been done in part since 8 years ago, and the ukrainians had all their time to prepare for an attack from that side.
    But instead, risking an attack from north and south, the russian army stands good chances of encircling most of ukrainian army and bring them to their knees quickly.

    He should have concentrated on surrounding Kiev

    I think he is trying to do that. But surrounding Kiev demands for taking all the ground from Belarus. It’s not something which can be dropped from the air.

    Being timid also isn’t helping.

    I don’t see the point of capturing the smaller cities and all the destruction and loss of life involved on both sides.

    This is probably another serious problem. The nationalists/neonazis (and probably many corrupt army leaders) are using civil population as shields, inciting them to take arms and creating numerous false flags inside the cities. How would you stop them and clean the cities without invading on the ground ?

    I get my info from thesaker.

    My point is that Putin deceived the Ukrainians (and the West) into believing that he only wanted to send Russian troops as ‘peacekeepers’ into the Donbass region where Russia had recently passed a law recognizing the LPR and DPR. That’s why the bulk of the Ukrainian Military dug their own graves for themselves in the Donbass region where they’re now surrounded by Russian Special Forces or Spetsnaz which attacked from the West and East in a classic pincer-style movement instead of directly from the South. That left cities like Kyiv and Kharkiv with hardly any defensive positions by the Ukrainian Military which made them susceptible to Russian attack. That is exactly what happened as the Spetsnaz managed to surround both cities by the third day of the ‘Special Military Operations’ against Ukraine.

    Putin’s Blitzkrieg is very different from the ‘Shock-and-Awe’ doctrine of the US military which relies on air power alone to search and destroy enemy positions, leading to a high rate of civilian deaths and destruction, as seen in Iraq and Afghanistan. Putin’s doctrine seems to be more about Sun Tzu’s Art of War using both deception and surprise as a wartime strategy while relying on precision attacks and surgical strikes as battlefield tactics. The results can be seen in the way Putin deceived the West by pretending to send Russian troops only for ‘peacekeeping’ purposes while deploying ground troops to decapitate the enemy leadership and conducting air strikes and missile attacks to destroy military assets. By the fourth day of the ‘Special Military Operations’, Putin had already disrupted the chain of command of the Ukrainian Military with its Commander-in-Chief Zelenskyy having to publicly implore Ukrainian civilians to volunteer as resistance fighters against the onslaught of the Russian Special Forces.

    The question now is: what’s next? Let’s wait a few more days as this action will be over by then.

    Mark Twain, “The War Prayer” (ca.1904-5)

    [MORE]

    It was a time of great and exalting excitement. The country was up in arms, the war was on, in every breast burned the holy fire of patriotism … on every hand and far down the receding and fading spread of roofs and balconies a fluttering wilderness of flags flashed in the sun … nightly the packed mass meetings listened, panting, to patriot oratory which stirred the deepest deeps of their hearts, and which they interrupted at briefest intervals with cyclones of applause, the tears running down their cheeks the while; in the churches the pastors preached devotion to flag and country, and invoked the God of Battles beseeching His aid in our good cause in outpourings of fervid eloquence which moved every listener. …

    Sunday morning came — next day the battalions would leave for the front; the church was filled; the volunteers were there, their young faces alight with martial dreams — visions of the stern advance, the gathering momentum, the rushing charge, the flashing sabers, the flight of the foe, the tumult, the enveloping smoke, the fierce pursuit, the surrender! Then home from the war, bronzed heroes, welcomed, adored, submerged in golden seas of glory! … The service proceeded; a war chapter from the Old Testament was read; the first prayer was said …

    Then came the “long” prayer. None could remember the like of it for passionate pleading and moving and beautiful language. The burden of its supplication was, that an ever-merciful and benignant Father of us all would watch over our noble young soldiers, and aid, comfort, and encourage them in their patriotic work….

    An aged stranger entered and moved with slow and noiseless step up the main aisle, his eyes fixed upon the minister, his long body clothed in a robe that reached to his feet, his head bare, his white hair descending in a frothy cataract to his shoulders, his seamy face unnaturally pale, pale even to ghastliness. … he ascended to the preacher’s side and stood there waiting. …

    The stranger touched his arm, motioned him to step aside — which the startled minister did — and took his place. During some moments he surveyed the spellbound audience with solemn eyes, in which burned an uncanny light; then in a deep voice he said:

    “I come from the Throne — bearing a message from Almighty God!” …

    “God’s servant and yours has prayed his prayer. Has he paused and taken thought? Is it one prayer? No, it is two — one uttered, the other not. Both have reached the ear of Him Who heareth all supplications, the spoken and the unspoken. Ponder this — keep it in mind. If you would beseech a blessing upon yourself, beware! lest without intent you invoke a curse upon a neighbor at the same time. If you pray for the blessing of rain upon your crop which needs it, by that act you are possibly praying for a curse upon some neighbor’s crop which may not need rain and can be injured by it.

    “You have heard your servant’s prayer — the uttered part of it. I am commissioned of God to put into words the other part of it — that part which the pastor — and also you in your hearts — fervently prayed silently. And ignorantly and unthinkingly? God grant that it was so! You heard these words: ‘Grant us the victory, O Lord our God!’ … When you have prayed for victory you have prayed for many unmentioned results which follow victory–must follow it, cannot help but follow it. Upon the listening spirit of God fell also the unspoken part of the prayer. He commandeth me to put it into words. Listen!

    “O Lord our Father, our young patriots, idols of our hearts, go forth to battle — be Thou near them! With them — in spirit — we also go forth from the sweet peace of our beloved firesides to smite the foe. O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it — for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen.

    (After a pause.) “Ye have prayed it; if ye still desire it, speak! The messenger of the Most High waits!”

    It was believed afterward that the man was a lunatic, because there was no sense in what he said.

  379. @RoatanBill

    Knocking out the airports, weapons depots, their military installations, etc, all over the country using only missiles and air power would, I think, have gotten him less of a visceral reaction.

    Yes, but this would be in the end much more “timid” because the real goal is to demilitarize Ukraine (or at least the eastern half) and clean the ground of killer neonazis/nationalists, while preserving as much people and civil structures, in order to create a real neutral buffer between russian borders and the pro-western states. A razed country would not constitute much of a buffer area …

    I expect them to counter attack Russia and possibly nowhere near Ukraine. If I were Putin, at any escalation from outside force, I’d take out all the US assets illegally occupying Syria and any floating coffins in the Mediterranean. Now that the gloves have come off, the only deterrent to an ever increasing war is decisive action to show ‘you take out one of mine and I’ll take out 10 of yours’.

    The US are probably measuring their ground carefully.
    But I suspect Putin will play soon another card which they will not expect at all, and leave them in a greater disarray than they are now. From what I saw until now, he has been playing faithfully to his famous quote:
    “If confrontation is inevitable, be sure to strike first”.
    So, he will not wait for the US to strike…

    Russia’s longer-term aim is to pry Europe away from NATO and U.S. dominance – and in the process, create with China a new multipolar world order centered on an economically integrated Eurasia. The aim is to dissolve NATO altogether, and then to promote the broad disarmament and denuclearization policies that Russia has been pushing for. …

    Russia dreamed of creating a new world order, but it was U.S. adventurism that has driven the world into an entirely new order – one that looks to be dominated by China as the default winner now that the European economy is essentially torn apart and America is left with what it has grabbed from Russia and Afghanistan, but without the ability to gain future support.

    And everything that I have written above may already be obsolete as Russia and the U.S. have gone on atomic alert. My only hope is that Putin and Biden can agree that if Russia hydrogen bombs Britain and Brussels, that there will be a devil’s (not gentleman’s) agreement not to bomb each other

    The point I was trying to make was to limit as much as possible traversing Ukraine on the ground and thereby reduce as much as possible contact with the civilian population and civilian infrastructure.

    Once he had permission from the two break away regions to station troops, the Donbas problem was largely resolved since the Ukrainian forces haven’t got a chance against the superior Russian capabilities. He could have shelled the shit out of them, strafed them with aircraft and in general neutered them inside of 24 hours if they were dumb enough to persist.

    It’s the fighting to get to Kiev that the world will hold against him because it involved civilians. Knocking out military infrastructure is part of any military action and is to be expected. Having troops cross the invisible line of demarcation marks him as an aggressor; bad optics. Making detours all over the country to mop up Ukrainian forces only enhances those bad optics. It’s one thing to defend the Donbas and quite another to take Ukrainian cities.

    I realize he had at least two objectives, to protect the Donbas and to send a message to NATO and the Ukrainian gov’t that there will be no NATO membership and there will be no foreign weapons brought into the country, or else. He skipped the verbal warnings and went straight to military action. I would have given Ukraine 30 days to eliminate all foreign supplied weapons and troops or face their kinetic removal on the 31st day using no boots on the ground.

To essentially sneak attack isn’t exactly the mark of someone with strength on his side.

    I have no idea if his boasts about hypersonics, etc have any depth or if he blew up what little he had as demonstration bluff.

    From what I understand, Putin had a legal justification under international law to recognize the breakaway regions and then offer them assistance. Anything past that marks him as an aggressor. He has no right under law to clean out anything inside Ukraine. If the Ukrainians want Nazi’s, nationalists, martians inside their country, that’s their business. Putin reading out of the US’s playbook doesn’t endear him to most of the world.

    It’s the sneakiness that’s going to bite him in the ass, and already has. Had he boldly and blatantly told the world what his red lines are AND then specify a date certain when military action would enforce his desires if they weren’t met voluntarily, he’d be in a much better position.

    As a 3D chess player he screwed up.

    Putin should declare that Russia’s gold now backs the currency and that gold will be used to settle international trade debts. In that declaration, he should also specify that he expects gold in return. No more funny money is acceptable for his gas, oil, minerals, food, etc. That move would send the world’s finances into a quick death spiral. They can take their Swift system and shove it.

    Now, from a purely military POV, Putin”s move was indeed genius, he took everyone by surprise. But that is the kind of military operation that would have been more fit for Hitler, WHO HAD ALREADY BURNED ALL THE BRIDGES WITH THE REST OF THE INDUSTRIAL WORLD. IN THE CASE OF PUTIN MOST OF THE BRIDGES WERE STILL STANDING AND THE OTHER POWERS ARE THE ONES BURNING THEM NOW FOR HIM, THAT IS THE BIG DIFFERENCE. The Law on Unintended Consequences. He is no Hitler, of course, but he has managed to get himself in his same spot. By now he could even get his Navy shut up inside the Black Sea if Turkey, a NATO member, decides, or simply yields to pressure and forbids her ships crossing the Bosphorus. The fallout is just starting to come down, you aint see nothing yet. Even Maduro could be getting the shakes by now because the eyes of Washington will fall sooner than later on him.

    BTW, Putin”s Shock and Awe was different from that of the U.S. in Iraq but FAR FROM GIVING HIM ANY ADVANTAGE, MILITARY OR POLITICAL, THIS FACT GREATLY DIMINISHED HIS CHANCES FOR SUCCES, SOMETHING HE DIDNT SEEM TO BE AWARE OF. He didnt intend to cause much harm to Ukrainian people or property and he hoped Ukrainians would understand that and that they would be grateful and maybe stand aside peacefully and let him finish the job. Well, that wasnt what happened, his plan backfired badly because he didnt realize that such a behaviour wouldnt make Ukrainians more willing to surrender but to the contrary, would embolden them in their resistence. And that means that Zelenzski now got one ace in his sleeve. He could drag the talks on and on while watching Putin and Russia getting in an European quigmare of their own while the rest of the world hate them more with each days that passes.

From there, and from Russia, all military actions that were deemed to be necessary in the rest of Ukrainia to be carried out from the air or by the sea.

    I find that the war effort on both sides, if there are, is well covered up, so as nothing much but silliness perspires.

    Not…… quite.

    Let’s put it this way: on strategic level things aren’t clear and/or are well balanced.

    On operational level Russians have achieved a lot and in the next couple of days we could see some ….ahm…”solutions” (read collapse, couldron, fighting retreat/rout/surrender, stuff like that).

    On tactical level both sides have been making some DUMB mistakes with a lot of casualties. Still, on the Russian side those fit well within operations. Or…you lose a recce company but you cut of an enemy corps. You lose a logistical battalion but you secure two major bridgeheads across strategic river.

    @antibeast

    In short, I would describe Putin’s tactics — which aim to decapitate the leadership and defang the military of Ukraine while minimizing the destruction of property and deaths of civilians — as ‘careful’ rather than ‘timid’.

    So far.

    He could have shelled the shit out of them, strafed them with aircraft and in general neutered them inside of 24 hours if they were dumb enough to persist.

    Putin certainly do not want all the army crushed. I think he much prefers to have them surrendered, because, as Russell Bentley (a texan living in Donbass) pointed, they will certainly be re-educated while working for the reconstruction of destroyed structures in Ukraine.

    It’s one thing to defend the Donbas and quite another to take Ukrainian cities.

    Both were necessary to accomplish an effective demilitarization. And bringing as many as possible of responsibles for the atrocities, the neonazis, into court and punishment, will send an effective deterrent message to future agitators. And reduce their numbers.

    I would have given Ukraine 30 days to eliminate all foreign supplied weapons and troops or face their kinetic removal on the 31st day using no boots on the ground.

    That, in my view, would have been a poor strategy. You don’t warn of the precise moment you will strike.
    And also because it would give the US time to strike first, if not by frontal confrontation, by any sneaky move which they are experts.

    And, as I said elsewhere, I suspect Putin (or their new allies) will still surprise us with a new strike, before this campaign ends, that will definitely plunge in disarray the western ZOG puppets.

    Putin should declare that Russia’s gold now backs the currency and that gold will be used to settle international trade debts. In that declaration, he should also specify that he expects gold in return. No more funny money is acceptable for his gas, oil, minerals, food, etc. That move would send the world’s finances into a quick death spiral. They can take their Swift system and shove it.

    That would be the correct and moral move.
    But the world is not (yet) prepared for such kind of honesty. Creating money from thin air is a faster way to propel economies. And it works well up to a certain point.
    The problem is when things get out of control, when greedy players start to engulf large parts of the economy and when the majority of population does not get any benefit.

    National currencies conjured into existence from nothing is fraud. Fraudulent schemes sometimes work for a while but they eventually fail and do so spectacularly. We are rapidly approaching a world wide economic collapse due to fraud. It’s the funny money that created the oligarchs, the political class that can afford several \$24,000 Traulsen refrigerators to store \$12/pint ice cream (Pelosi), that pays for wars to murder civilians, that provides the salaries for disgusting mercenaries that morons thank for their service, etc.

    No gov’t should have anything to do with what the people use as money. There should be no Dollar, no Yen, no Euro, etc. The metals producers should get together and coin “money” for circulation denominated in the WEIGHT of metal. A gold coin could be struck with 100 stamped into its face denoting 100 grams, for example.

    Prices of everything would be set world wide as G:S:C so a typical car would cost 945:50:0 meaning 945 grams of gold, 50 grams of silver and no grams of copper. The units could actually be whatever could be agreed upon. No one would care if the gold was minted in the US, Russia, or on mars.

    This would eliminate currency arbitrage, exchange rates, central banks and would mean that government is out of the “money” business. Price inflation would be a market force, not the whim of some banking cabal. Deficit spending with central banks monetizing the debt would be impossible. Wars would be less likely as now they need to be paid for in cash G:S:C, not thin air “currency”.

    Credit card companies could store all the metal an individual or company owns and we can all use plastic as a convenience with the option to withdraw any part of OUR metal any time we want. No more fractional reserve banking.

    Would you take an ultimatum from Ned Flanders or from Apu Nahasapeemapetilon seriously…? That is what Vladimir had become to the US NATO family. Maybe he hadn”t noticed but for them he had become “the guy of the stern warnings”…like Apu:

    “Mister Simpson. I already told you very politely to stop unwrapping my candy. If you dont stop right now I”ll have no choice but to ask you very politely once again”.

THE FIRST THING YOU DO IN THIS WORLD IS TO MARK YOUR TURF, WHAT DO YOU THINK URINE IS FOR…? YOU MARK IT AND DEFEND IT AND ISSUE STERN WARNINGS TO POSSIBLE INTRUDERS. But the most powerful man in the world, the one with the finger on the button controlling the most destructive force in Human History didnt seem to know it as he didnt bother to react to U.S. provocations, not even when Consulates of his nation were being taken by assault, against all international law and in flagrant violation of their diplomatic inmunity, by the Federal Police of a hostile State. Something that the U.S. government never ever dared to do even against small nations like Cuba or Nicaragua.

    You probably will disagree again…

    Up to a point I also shared your view. “No matter what, Putin must stay put, and faithful to his own words, and never invade for any pretext or goading.” Because that was the road to some agreement to end the crisis.

    But then I saw that all the warnings, all the talks, the meetings, they were completely useless. It was like trying to reason with a door, or with a rabid dog.
    So, real confrontation became inevitable. The question became when and how.
    And I am pretty sure that somehow the opponent side also sensed that. But they were still too full of themselves, convinced that Putin/Russia would never dare to take the bold step.
    After this point, all chivalry ended, because the fight had indeed started.

    (I add here my answer to your other comment, because R.Unz is limiting replies).

    If one country wants to start a war with another, then declare your intentions along with stating why and allow for negotiations at the last minute to avoid hostilities. Isn’t that what diplomacy is for?

    Sure. But at a certain point it became absloutely clear diplomacy was leading nowhere. In fact, it was rather plain mockery instead. What to say about Liz Truss visit to Moscow ? Or even Scholz, when ridiculing the genocide issue ?

    To essentially sneak attack isn’t exactly the mark of someone with strength on his side.

    It was not a sneaky attack because he gave plenty of warning (since 8 years ago ?), he proposed written agreements, he unendlessly heard all parties.
    But, all peaceful options clearly exhausted, when the moment for striking arrives, you don’t tell your adversary: “I will give you a punch in precisely 1 min”. Because by then you have lost…

    I understand that negotiating has produced no concrete results. My disagreement with what Putin did is his sneaky way of going about starting military operations.

    Putin advertises Russia’s strength (hypersonic missiles, potent aircraft, etc) and then uses the tactics of a weakling, an underdog, to start a war. Even the Japanese delivered a declaration of war moments before Pearl Harbor was hit, if I remember correctly. Precisely because Russia is a potent power due to nukes, Russia shouldn’t use the tactics of a nigger to start hostilities. He should have stated clearly and unequivocally that unless so and so happens by such and such a date that a minute past that date there will be a state of war between Russia and Ukraine. That’s what international law requires and is what would shield his soldiers from being brought before a war crimes tribunal should things go sideways for him.

    He gave no warning. Instead, he gave the entire world the impression he was going to place peacekeepers into the Donbas to prevent further hostilities and loss of life and property on both sides. Your assertion that 8 years of haggling is the equivalent of a declaration of war is ludicrous.

    I have no contention with that. And I would prefer much to live in a world evolving over a more solid ground and not mired in a too fast development.

    Fraudulent schemes sometimes work for a while but they eventually fail and do so spectacularly.

    This one fails mainly because those in control are not responsible, or because they are too exposed to greedy thugs.

    But that “fraud” is a useful invention when we want accelerate the pace of development.

    A society with a currency based in real assets, gold, silver, whatever has an intrinsic value, can only develop and create new things on the basis of what was created in the PAST. That is, I worked, I accumulated some assets, and I can make some new things on the basis of those assets already created. And eventually, those new assets to be created will become the basis to create still more assets. If I have nothing in the beginning, I can do nothing. With a bit, I can do a bit more. With a lot I can do a lot.
    It’s a correct system. But it’s a slow system.

    The fiat currency works on the basis of FUTURE expectation. It does not need a real basis to start creating new assets. But it expects those assets will really be created somewhere in the future.
    For example, if one man X has a good idea to create something, a new car, but has not the assets to start creating them (the factory, the workers, the procedures), a “responsible facilitator” (usually a bank, but we may conceive any entity charged with that task) emits then the necessary currency in order for X start building his factory, hiring his workers, etc, and produce an sell all those cars. In the end he will have created real assets, through the help of something that at starts is nothing more than thin paper…
    He could also have done that through the use of a real asset backed currency, but it would have been much more slow and difficult. To find the people with those real assets, to convince them it’s a good idea. And there is a limit to the number of new creations per unit time, because the sum of real assets available is quite limited.
    On the contrary, with a fiat currency the sky is the limit… Or rather, the limit is in the number of good ideas and in the will to carry them to the end.

    Fiat currency is a very good tool, but only in the hands of responsible and committed players.

    What about the repeated statement, since December (at least, I didn’t follow before), that he would resort to “military-technical means” if negotiations failed ? Isn’t that clear enough ?
    Moreover, if you are facing an existential threat, you have a limited number of cards to play (contrary to the US military machine which spends with no constraints), and you want to preserve as much as possible your population and economy, aswell those of ukrainiains (because we must not forget, Putin sees (most of) them as their brothers too), you are entitled to use the most effective means.

    I would side with you if Putin’s objective was sheer anihilation and destruction, specially of people. But it’s not at all what we see, quite the contrary. What is more important for you, a war opening with all due formalities, or a war ending faster, with less civilian losses (and military too) and less destroyed infrastructures ?

    I dont usually answer to morons but I am making one exception in this case only I want to leave a couple of points clear, I mean I think they need more detail and this idiot just gave me the excuse.

    First, I am not the one to tell anyone, animal, human, world power, which their turf must be, that is their problem and their business, not mine. Only a clueless dope could assume that by simply stating that rule I was putting myself in the position of telling every cat and dog in the world on which tree trunk they must pee. When the USSR and the U.S. decided what their respective turfs would be they didnt ask anyone else, they just cut the cake and took each one their part according to their wishes and interests. Then, later, when the USSR fell out of this world and all what remained of it was a random assortment of nations and a Russian Federation which still had a comparable nuclear arsenal to that of the U.S., despite which the U.S. had started encroaching in her former turf, then at some point the leader of the RF, be that Yeltsin or Medvedev or Putin should have made clear THAT RUSSIA STILL HAD CLAIMS FOR A TURF AND FURTHERMORE SHOULD HAVE MADE CLEAR TO WASHINGTON WHERE THE BOUNDARIES OF THAT TURF WERE LOCATED.

    Yeltsin failed to do such a thing when NATO, i.e. the U.S.,, decided to bomb Serbia and that started something that was very nocive and which consequences we are seeing right now, more than two decades later. As the Russian leader failed to establish a turf which he was ready to protect using the whole power of his nuclear arsenal if needed, the world hegemon naturally assumed that the whole of the former Soviet turf was up for grabs, including Russia itself…!And not only that but also friends of the defunct Soviet Union around the world, in the M.E. and Northern Africa for instance. Yeltsin may have used the excuse that Russia was in such a disarray at the time of the Serbian bombing that it couldnt have done anything to come to the aid of his Slav bros, maybe he was right maybe not, but that excuse has run his course long ago. Once again, I am not the one to tell Russia or her leader what that turf should have been, the one to reclaim, I am just pointing out that THE RUSSIAN LEADERSHIP FAILED TO CLAIM ANY TURF AT ALL DESPITE BEING ABLE TO PROTECT IT WITH THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE NUCLEAR ARSENAL IN THE WORLD. And that takes us to Feb. 23, 2022 and the mess the world is staring at.

    Saker tends to behave like a love-struck Putin fanboy at times but here’s a map from ‘southfront’ depicting the state of the war so far in Ukraine:

    Another Andrei by the name of Martyanov has been telling the world of the (real) revolution in military affairs which we are now witnessing in Ukraine. This strategic game-changer could have persuaded Putin to call NATO’s bluff by crossing his own red-lines to the point of no return, by warning NATO not to intervene in Ukraine unless they want a nuclear war.

    By his own words and deeds, Putin has clearly shown that he does not respect the US-installed and Western-backed Ukrainian leadership which he has derided as a bunch of ‘drug addicts’ and ‘neo-Nazis’ to be removed by force at minimal cost to Ukrainian civilians. That’s the reason I reckon must have been the motive driving Putin’s decision to ignore the diplomatic protocols as enshrined in the UN Charter as well as the ‘Laws of War’ as stipulated by the Geneva Convention. Putin’s choice of words to describe his opponent means that he does not regard Zelenski’s regime as anything but a comical fraud which has been exposed as such in only a matter of days since the start of his ‘Special Military Operations’ in Ukraine. Nor does Putin intend to allow a reconstituted Ukraine to ever become yet another satellite State of the US-led NATO which poses an existential threat to the Russian Federation, but rather as part of a political alliance with ‘Union States’ such as Belarus or a military alliance such as the Russian-led CSTO.

    These and other things would be decided in the coming months not by the fiction in the media as propagated by the West but by the facts on the ground to be established by the Russian Military in the coming weeks in Ukraine. If Zelenski had any sense left in him, I would recommend that he take his comical act somewhere else and leave Ukraine to the new sheriff in town, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.

    There is a colossal bungling by the Russian military thus far. Spearheading the movement are seasoned veterans who are getting their clocks cleaned. It’s one thing to invade and seize control. It’s another thing to keep your supply lines intact and occupy a hostile place for a long period of time. How did Afghanistan work out?

Those forward units have now been joined by a 40-mile long convoy of Russian Armed Forces less than 20 miles from Kiev, as reported in the video below:

    Meanwhile, the bulk of the Ukrainian Army is still entrapped inside the Donbass region with the Russian Military in control of the Ukrainian airspace, airports and seports, having destroyed the Ukrainian Air Force and Navy in less than 48 hours.

    There has been brilliant messaging by Ukrainian leaders.

    No amount of Western fiction is going to change the facts on the ground being established by the Russian Military. Once the war is over in a few more weeks, Ukraine will be under Russian suzerainty, regardless of whether the West likes it or not.

    Nobody doubts this will be one for the books, the History books and the ones on Military Strategy, but the bad news come in the consequences Putin and Russia will have to suffer, and which are already suffering as we speak, which will diminish the shine of this military victory. Already Turkey has closed the Bosphorus to all Russian Navy ships which will greatly limit the capacity of the Kremlin to give rapid responses to crisis in the Middle East, like they have been doing in Syria so far. Russia has been cut off also from the airspace of the entire European continent or most of it. To that we may add the economic sanctions, SWIFT and so on. I hope this was well planned especially when it comes to the negative fallout because if NATO underestimated the enemy before the 23th of Feb. Putin also may have underestimated their intense rage and their intention to punish him in the worst possible way. There is also the question of the allies, especially in Latin America, which have become very vulnerable to vengeful responses from the U.S. As I have said already many times, the Empire not only strikes back but always strikes back hard and where it hurts.

    Yeltsin was a stooge of the USA. He did what he was told. Putin had to rebuild Russia’s defences, and not being a psychopath like Western leaders, he attempted to negotiate in good faith with Evil monsters. 2014 changed that, and I think he should have moved then, reinstalled Yanukovich, expelled the Nazis and thrown every Western NGO out of Ukraine and Russia. And tried to capture Nudelman and put it on trial, too.

    About that cauldron being prepared for the huge UkroNazi force on the border with Lugansk and Donbas. Those forces have had eight years to operate in that area and are extremely well dug in with trenches, tunnels, bunkers, etc. It seem that Russians haven’t done much to deal with this force other than the militias of the People’s Republics holding heir lines and attacking while the Russian forces are in the process of encircling the UkroNazis. Dealing with this huge force could well be the final action of the operation as all the while while those troops are shelling Donbass and threatening it Russia has justification in front of its own public for being in Ukraine. Once these troops are completely encircled how will they be dealt with, as these are the worst neoNazi scum gathered from Galicia? Will they be allowed to surrender, withdraw, or destroyed in some most spectacular act to impress on the West what could happen in an instant to any army threatening Russia and its people and security?

    The war in Ukraine is about Russian national security, during the last war [ww2] Nazi Germany attacked the Soviet Union through the Ukraine, as a result the Soviet Union lost 10’s of millions of citizens, many Ukrainians fought with the Germans. After Germany was reunited in 1991 well documented promises were made by the American leaders that NATO would not move one inch further east, these were lies, Immediately Poland and other states were swallowed up by NATO in the next 25 years leaving notably Ukraine and Georgia as non NATO members. In 2008 a conference was held which promised membership to them also this was a red line for Russia since this would mean they would be surrounded by a hostile military alliance with its naval base in Crimea taken over by NATO.
    Incidentally prominent US intellectual and statesman George Kennan foresaw the dangers when he said in 1998 the expansion of NATO would be an ‘epic fateful mistake’ and a “strategic blunder of potentially epic proportions” This mistake has been compounded by the containment policies of the West of Russia, China and Iran, what do containment polices consist of except as the UK said recently their pivot to Asia included sending its latest aircraft carrier to the far east as a sort of Imperial warning and the surrounding of same with military bases and the disruption of their economies? This is lunacy as any self respecting nation will not be intimidated. Certainly not Putin who has shown a masterful understanding of all the machinations of the West.
    Finally the US has a policy called the ‘Munroe doctrine’ which warns any peer nation that they must not build any bases or missiles in any state in the Western hemisphere [remember the Cuban missile crisis when the US and the Soviets came close to nuclear war] a few weeks ago Bidens national security advisor said… any breach of the Munroe doctrine would mean the US would act decisively.
    There you have it the US will not allow foreign bases anywhere in the western hemisphere i.e. in its own backyard but insists NATO can sit on Russian borders with bases in Ukraine with nuclear missiles aimed at Moscow just 5 minutes flying time away. This quite rightly is a red line for President Putin, he will not let that happen.

    In 2014 the US staged a coup in Ukraine which was preceded by Victoria Nuland distributing 5 Billion dollars to NGO,s in order to topple the legitimate Ukrainian President and set up a US led puppet government [remember Nulands phone call to US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt F—k the EU]. Here is a letter I sent to Foreign Sec William Haig about his misleading the House of Commons regarding Ukraine’s breach of its own constitution….

    [MORE]

    Dear Sir/Madam.
    I sent an e-mail to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on 13th March 2014 and a follow up one on 7th April 2014, asking the Foreign Secretary to correct a misleading statement he made to the House of Commons on 4th March 2014. I have not received any replies. I wish to make a formal complaint. Here is the complaint.
    In a statement to the House of Commons on 4th March 2014, the Foreign Secretary deceived the House about the legitimacy of the new regime in Ukraine. He led the House to believe that the Ukrainian parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, had removed President Yanukovych from power on 22 February 2014 in accordance with the Ukrainian constitution and that therefore “it is wrong to question the legitimacy of the new authorities. It is simply untrue that the Rada followed the procedure laid down in the Ukrainian constitution to impeach and remove a president from power.
    Article 108 of the Ukraine constitution has four circumstances whereby a President can be replaced, the powers of the President of Ukraine terminate prior to the expiration of term in cases of:
    1) resignation;
    2) inability to exercise his or her powers for reasons of health;
    3) removal from office by the procedure of impeachment;
    4) death.
    The procedure, laid down in Article 111 of the constitution, is not unlike that required for the impeachment and removal from power of a US president, which could take months.
    Thus, Article 111 obliges the Rada to establish a special investigatory commission to formulate charges against the president, seek evidence to justify the charges and come to conclusions about the president’s guilt for the Rada to consider.
    Prior to a final vote to remove a president from power, it requires
    (a) The Constitutional Court of Ukraine to review the case and certify that the constitutional procedure of investigation and consideration has been followed, and
    (b) The Supreme Court of Ukraine must certify that the acts of which the President is accused are worthy of impeachment.
    The Rada didn’t follow this procedure at all. No investigatory commission was established and the Courts were not involved. On 22 February 2014, the Rada simply passed a bill removing President Yanukovych from office.
    Furthermore, the bill wasn’t even supported by three quarters of the members of the Rada, as required by Article 111 for the removal of a president from office – it was supported by 328 members, when it required 338 (since the Rada has 450 members).
    Justifying UK support for the new regime in Kiev in the House of Commons on 4 March 2014, the Foreign Secretary said:
    “Former President Yanukovych left his post and then left the country, and the decisions on replacing him with an acting President were made by the Rada, the Ukrainian Parliament, by the very large majorities required under the constitution, including with the support of members of former President Yanukovych’s party, the Party of Regions, so it is wrong to question the legitimacy of the new authorities.”
    The Ukrainian President had not resigned, he is still the legitimate President of Ukraine, therefore the Foreign Secretary’s statement was a calculated deception of the House of Commons, designed to give the impression that the procedure prescribed in the Ukrainian constitution for the removal of a president from office had been followed, when it hadn’t.
    Because this statement was fundamentally wrong can I be assured that the Foreign Secretary will tell the House of Commons at the earliest opportunity, and through them the British people, that the statement he made on 4th March 2014, was false.
    I await your response

Of course there are many of them, especially in Galicia and any foreign fools responding to the call by Zelensky, and they’re being funnelled to the fronts in the south and elsewhere through corridors Russians have still left opened which will later be closed and the lunatics completely annihilated. These are all irregulars in uniforms with yellow armbands, not the official regular Ukrainian soldiers, except any that the Nazis have ben able to corner and pressgang into their own units. Zelensky and his gang are not in command of the Ukrainian armed forces but of gangs of Nazi fanatics and criminals with hardly a decent command structure between them.

    Russia will probably not exist in 100 years. They are facing a demographic disaster unparalleled in History. In 10 years they won’t be able to man an Army. Russia isn’t alone. The population of China is expected to be 50% what is is now by 2050.

    The Swiss were steadily accumulating gold in subsequent years and, by the year 2000, their gold holdings far exceeded any other country on the planet (on a per capita basis).

    The Swiss franc was 40% backed by gold up until the turn of the century and in the years that followed the Swiss franc appreciated to be worth MORE than the USD.

    The Swiss today have a per capita GDP that dwarfs the U.S and the Swiss Central Bank Owns a Record \$162 Billion of U.S. Stocks, coupled to possessing foreign exchange reserves of around \$1 trillion:

    You are mistaken.

    You’re implying that, along with those who don’t understand the Gold Standard, that the limit to growth is proportional to the amount of gold we can extract from the ground.

    And, since the amount of gold mined each year only increases the above ground gold holdings of the world by less than 2%, then ipso facto, growth can never be more than 2%.

    I have news for you: Even if another gram of gold was never extracted from the earth for the next million years, the world would function perfectly well and growth would continue humming along quite nicely with a fixed quantity of gold on the planet.

    In the event that the growth rate and the industrial output exceeded the rate at which gold was being mined, the market would ADJUST THE PRICE OF GOLD UPWARDS to maintain an equilibrium.
    In other words, an ounce of gold would have increased purchasing power in the future and this is exactly what happened in the 19th century – where a dollar bought more in 1900 than it did in 1800.

    The whole point of gold is that is instills fiscal and monetary discipline – something fiat currency can NEVER do in the long run -because politicians will always be tempted to over promise and the unwashed masses will always demand more free stuff.

    I did not say a gold backing would be deleterious.
    What I said was simply that a fiat currency pushes things much more fast.
    It all depends on the specific economies, Switzerland had their own objectives, they certainly measured the pros and cons of each way and decided for a balanced one. Which I certainly do praise.

    It’s like a car. A Ferrari in the hands of a fool young hothead is a sure recipe for disaster. For him, a limited power small car is much more appropriate.

    The Swiss franc was 40% backed by gold up until the turn of the century

    And the remainder 60% was fiat currency, I presume.
    And they stopped gold backing since 2000.

    For me, it just means 2 things:
    1- They knew how to take advantage of using a partial fiat currency.
    2- They were sufficiently responsible to drop the gold backing after some point.

    Even though much of the Russian commentary about 9/11 professed empathy rather than sympathy, in their eyes the US was both a victim – as Russia likes to see itself – and ‘had it coming’ while Russia was blameless.”

    https://www.chathamhouse.org/2021/09/russia-and-911-roads-not-taken

    I havent trusted Vladimir Putin a bit ever since I saw him warmly shaking G. W. Bush hand after 911 with brightened eyes as if he had reached Nirvana. “Finally, finally! I am one of THEM…!”. I couldnt imagine then that this man, one of the most informed and powerful in the world I was told, also acc. to many, the most intelligent world leader, couldnt figure out what I had already understood as soon as saw those airplanes hitting those buildings (if they were any real anyway).

    My distrust of him only grew bigger with time, during the Syrian, Libyan episodes and at every step in the way he managed to reinforce it. For example when answering, to those prodding him to take a more active role in Libya or Syria, that his main priority in his foreign policy was…to have good relations with the U.S. Then when abandoning Yanukovich to his fate when all he needed to do was to send him the military aid Yanukovich was asking for, a minute fraction of what he is sending now, and the world wouldnt be in such a mess as we speak. And what about his weird statement that U.S. military presence in Afghanistan… was of great help in fighting Muslim terrorism…!?

    How weird it is, that had Putin sent to Yanukovich the military aid that the duly elected president of Ukraine was begging for to crush the UkroNazi coup, ALL THAT
    COULD HAVE BEEN DONE WELL WITHIN INTERNATIONAL LAW, AN ALLY ASKS FOR RUSSIAN HELP TO CRUSH AN INTERNAL REVOLT OF NAZI EXTREMISTS. “SO NOTHING TO SEE HERE, JUST MOVE ALONG WORLD”. INSTEAD, WHAT PUTIN IS GIVING US IS PERMANENTE WAR FOR THE REST OF THE 2020S AND EVEN MAYBE WW3.

Right, he abolished the German Confederation and instead formed the North German Confederation as the first German national state, aligning the smaller North German states behind Prussia, and excluding [multiethnic] Austria. Wise move, indeed. What does Putin do? The opposite. With over 190 ethnic groups in the Russian Federation, he wants to unite under his close supervision Ukraine with its almost 130 nationalities and Belarus (a not-so-much a melting pot of Belorussians, Russians, Poles, Ukrainians, Lithuanians, Latvians, and Tatars.)

    You may be right and maybe Yetlsin was an American puppet but remember also that Putin himself was put in his present place by Yeltsin and that had to be for some reason. And the only reason I can figure out is that he saw that PUTIN ADORES ALSO THE WEST AND THET HE ADORES IT WITH A PASSION…OR AT LEAST HE LOVED UNTIL VERY RECENTLY. Yeltsin thought that Putin’s love for the West, especially Germany and the U.S., would ensure that there will be no turning back for Russia. He was half right and half wrong on that. He was wrong in that he underestimated Putin’s patriotism and nationalism but he didn’t underestimate at all his worshipping of the West so at the end things evened up and that is why we are here now, in the brink of total war in Europe or even worse.

    From the very beginning of his tenure Putin made extremely clear that he wanted Russia to be accepted by the West he loved so. Nobody could doubt that, he said it himself many times and he bitterly complained until even last week: why, why, why you treat us so bad when we are such a nice people and so friendly to you…? That was a fool’s errand, I said from the beginning, because West of the Polish border they hate and have hated Russia for a millennium already and that is not gonna change any time soon. That is why I have been blasting Putin’s foreign policy towards NATO for a decade now in every available forum and I have even predicted that his insensate quest for approval and acceptance from the same people that have wanted to destroy Russia for centuries will have only two possible outcomes, the very destruction of Russia if he keeps at it…or another big European conflagration. I was Right and he was wrong. His foreign policy towards NATO is in shambles and, as for the war itself, there is lot still to come. This is only the beginning. A few planeloads of war material to Kiev, some tanks and artillery added up and maybe History would have taken another turn in the winter of 2014. We will never know…

    Quarter-Wit, your comments are delusional on steroids. You’re just reciting Zio disinfo that comforts you and projecting the weaknesses of the Anglo-Zionist empire on Russia.

    I recall an interview Paul Craig Roberts was having with a journalist some years ago when the U.S aggressor was into its 15th or 16th year of the occupation of Afghanistan.

    Said journo mentioned something along the lines of ‘if that happens, the U.S will respond and bring its military might to bear’.
    To which PCR said:

    ‘What military might ? The U.S military can’t even defeat a few thousand lightly armed Taliban, who now control a greater area of the the country than does the U.S.

    Quarter-Wit, you are an absolute joke to be claiming that Russia will probably not exist in 100 years.
    The reality, as any objective assessment will testify to, is that due to its abundance of cheap energy and other resources, coupled to the unbreakable bond it has formed with China, the Sino-Russian behemoth is already now the sole military-economic hegemon of consequence on the planet and the second half of the 21st century will belong to them, and them alone.

    Those that hitch their wagon to the Belt and Road Initiative will also do very nicely indeed.
    Those that maintain their vassal status to the Anglo-Zionists will be flushed down the S-bend.

    From the very beginning of his tenure Putin made extremely clear that he wanted Russia to be accepted by the West he loved so. Nobody could doubt that, he said it himself many times and he bitterly complained until even last week: why, why, why you treat us so bad when we are such a nice people and so friendly to you…?

    Methinks that Putin started out as a ‘Westoid’ whose unrequited love for the West ultimately led him to continue the policy of appeasement towards the US-led NATO which began under Yeltsin after the dissolution of the USSR. That Putin even asked Clinton on the chances of Russia joining NATO clearly shows his psychic need to be accepted by the West.

    As a ‘Westoid’ from St. Petersburg, Putin must have been vetted first by the Western Globalists before his appointment to succeed Yeltsin. But something must have happened to Putin after spending years in power in the Kremlin which exposed him to a lot of state secrets unbeknownst to him prior to his ascension to power. Russian intellectuals like Aleksandr Dugin must have had some influence on him as did members of his inner circle of trusted aides from the intelligence, defense and security establishment. Putin could have adopted their historical worldview and ideological values which shaped his foreign policy, even while still exhibiting the emotive qualities of a love-struck fanboy of the West. This would explain his idiosyncratic approach to Russia’s foreign policy towards the West, which vacillates between being friendly to while acting hostile to the West.

    That was a fool’s errand, I said from the beginning, because West of the Polish border they hate and have hated Russia for a millennium already and that is not gonna change any time soon. That is why I have been blasting Putin’s foreign policy towards NATO for a decade now in every available forum and I have even predicted that his insensate quest for approval and acceptance from the same people that have wanted to destroy Russia for centuries will have only two possible outcomes, the very destruction of Russia if he keeps at it…or another big European conflagration.

    I don’t think the anti-Russian hostility of the West has anything to do with Polish or Baltic Russophobia but everything to do with the geopolitics of the post-USSR Eurasia.

    According to Russian intellectuals like Aleksandr Dugin, Russia — by virtue of its location, geography and land size — is destined to play a pivotal role in the geopolitical arena of Eurasia which historically had been a contest between the Atlanticist sea-powers (Spanish Empire, British Empire, USA) and the Eurasianist land-powers (French Empire, Imperial Germany, Ottoman Empire, Nazi Germany, Russian Empire, USSR). After the Fall of the USSR as the last Eurasianist land-power, the USA remained the only Atlanticist sea-power which sought to dominate Eurasia through 1). NATO expansion to Eastern Europe, 2). US/NATO military interventions, and 3). US-instigated ‘Color Revolutions’.

    Putin was late in grasping this geopolitical reality of the post-USSR Eurasia. Moreover, Russia’s possession of the world’s largest nuclear arsenal and its export of high-tech weapons to the world effectively turned Russia into a peer competitor to the USA. No matter what Putin does to appease the West, the USA would invariably seek to contain Russia, by subverting its State or corrupting its Society, all the while expanding NATO as its chief instrument of military power and political influence to dominate Europe.

    For me, it [the Swiss removing the 40% gold backing to its currency] just means 2 things:

    1- They knew how to take advantage of using a partial fiat currency.
    2- They were sufficiently responsible to drop the gold backing after some point.

    In fact, it only means ONE THING:

    The Anglo-Zionist empire and its vassals were being embarrassed by the strength of the Swiss economy under a gold backed currency regime (the other countries were being made to look bad in comparison).
    Switzerland had excellent growth/low unemployment/record export volumes and revenue – at a time when the Zio propaganda was saying that gold backing of one’s currency would bring stagnation, as a fast appreciating currency would price out your exports and make them uncompetitive.

    So, the Anglo-Zionist empire pressured the Swiss to abandon their gold backing and sell down a significant proportion of their gold holdings at a time when gold prices were already depressed.

    It’s amazing what a little ‘pressure’ (aka known as threats and intimidation), can achieve when the Zionist Usury Banking Cartel choose to apply it.

    You write:

    And are you implying the Swiss franc is doomed because they are now a 100% fiat currency ? Let’s see…

    ALL fiat currencies eventually go to zero.

    However, since Switzerland is far more responsible in its fiscal and monetary policies and infinitely less profligate than the U.S, it is among the least soiled of the dirty shirts in the laundry hamper and consequently the CHF will be one of the last fiat currencies standing before it too implodes.

    But it’s important to get something else clear. Even though the Swiss no longer have a direct gold backing for their currency, their central bank STILL possesses over 1000 tonnes of gold:

    https://investingnews.com/daily/resource-investing/precious-metals-investing/gold-investing/top-central-bank-gold-holdings/

    So, in the event of worldwide run in fiat currencies, the Swiss have the ability to turn on a dime and switch from their current fiat status to a gold backing – thus supporting their currency.
    Investors know this – that’s why they’re reluctant to part with their Swiss francs (CHF).

    It should be noted, that relative to its population, the Swiss have 122 tonnes of gold per million population, compared to the U.S with under 25 tonnes per million population*.

    (*That’s assuming that the U.S even possesses the 8100 tonnes of Au it claims to hold – it refuses to do an audit of its gold holdings as Dr Ron Paul and others have been demanding for years and the last audit was done in 1974. Many are speculating that the U.S has very little or no gold at all).

    Meanwhile, we’re hearing how the Russian ruble is tanking as a result of the Ukraine event, yet simultaneously has the fifth largest gold holding in the world.
    How can that be, some are asking ?

    Extremely agitated by their impotence to do anything about the Russian police action (it’s not a war – it’s merely a neutralising of the criminal elements), in Ukraine, the Zionist Usury Banking Cartel have pulled all the stops to decimate the value of the ruble (unlike the Chinese Yuan which is tightly monitored and not freely traded on world markets and subject to capital controls which prevent the Zio scum from doing to it what they regularly do to the ruble).

    But this plays right into Putin’s hands.

    Russia is food and energy self sufficient and self sufficient in a variety of other areas. Russian workers are paid in rubles and when the ruble falls, it is an incentive to make said item LOCALLY, rather than fork out more rubles for the foreign equivalent – thus making Russia even LESS dependent on foreign imports.

    MOST IMPORTANTLY, the price of oil went over USD \$100 in trade last night (Russia is either the world’s # 1 or 2 oil producer/exporter).
    Similarly, the Russians are getting RECORD prices for their natural gas and other resource exports and they’re getting it in HARD CURRENCY – which they can simply convert to an ever growing quantity of rubles at the current depressed exchange rates and use those extra rubles to COMPENSATE Russians with extra benefits like tax cuts or increased infrastructure spending/welfare entitlements/increases in the old age pension etc.

    Mark my words, the depressed ruble exchange rate will not last forever and a unique opportunity exists to purchase Russian stocks at bargain basement prices.

    MH370 was electronically commandeered from the ground (ie: NO input from Capt Shah at all since cockpit controls would’ve been disabled*), and then landed safely on the U.S military base on Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean.
    Of course, all passengers and crew were murdered.

    This seems highly fanciful to me; do you have any evidence to suggest this?

    1) November 2013: Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal concludes and the Apartheid Israeli state and it’s murderous IDF are proven guilty of having carried out egregious human right abuses and outright genocide against the Palestinians.

    How does the Israeli-Palestinian conflict affect Malaysia? What are they mixed up in? By what right does a state allow itself to spend time and money to create a tribunal to “judge” another state? This would be the role of the UN.

    immediate retribution.

    An immediate payback would be :
    – recall of the ambassador and eventual rupture of diplomatic relations,
    – ban on travel between Israel and Malaysia,
    – economic sanctions etc.

    2) March 2014: MH370 disappears (allegedly) and is presumed crashed in the ocean.
    3) July 2014: MH17 is shot down by the Ukrainians – acting on behalf of their Zio controllers.

    To assume without proof that these two planes were shot down by the Israelis, directly or indirectly, is defamatory.

    MAS discounts tickets to well below cost to get bums on seats but aircraft continue to fly near empty and MAS haemorrhages many billions in the years that follow.
    Malaysian Airlines were previously carrying around 40% of inbound tourists but now much fewer are coming.
    The tourist industry [one of the major sources of hard currency] collapses and the country suffers countless billions in losses to its economy over subsequent years.

    But this is the case for all airlines! All of them have suffered from the COVID-19 crisis.
    Malaysia Airline is a very good company but even the best company in the world cannot face events beyond its control.

    ALL fiat currencies eventually go to zero.

    Ok, but WHY exactly ?
    You did not offer any counter reasoning to my points:
    1- That fiat currency is much more powerful to propel economies than gold backed currency.
    2- That only responsible societies can use profitably a fiat currency.

    If you look at the basis of money, historically, we had cases where societies used little stones, or shells, or any other useless objects as money. And it worked well. Why ? Because people trusted the system, those little useless objects were kind of “promissory notes” representing a certain value, and everyone abided by the system.
    That was my point about the dollar. If all players trust the dollar (not as representative of US economy and financial system) but as a universal accredited trade mediator, it keeps its average value.

    Of course, if at some point everybody defaults, and the last guarantee of the dollar, the US system, defaults too, everything collapses at once. But, in a very large financial system, involving lots of countries and economies all over the world, all using the same currency for trade exchanges, it’s quite improbable all of them will default at same time.
    There mainly lies the power of US dollar, not (solely) on the strenght of US economy.

    Who can believe now that the direction of the UR project is as it was made to seem until the “anti-vaxx” vituperation was introduced.

    I completely agree with Prof. Hall.

    In the linked interview, at roughly the 16-minute mark Barrett states that he received an email from Ron Unz stating that he “may have to admit you vaxx skeptics were right.”
    https://www.unz.com/audio/kbarrett_ex-nyu-prof-michael-rectenwald-woke-capitalism-is-a-scam/

    Ron Unz received multiple comments by various people in the past couple of years regarding the underlying intentions of the global vaccination push. These commentators clearly connected the jab push to the World Economic Forum and their Great Reset/Fourth Industrial Revolution/Digital ID implementation. Unz in his thousand-word-count articles offered the “weaponized virus” narrative while continuously validating the government and mainstream media COVID narrative regarding death counts. Ron belittled, ignored and suppressed those who offered concrete proof negating the blatant lies being promoted regarding those who were identified as “positive” using the PCR test. Unz loved using the word “crackpot” to downplay dissenting views.

    Dr. Tony Hall is the example of what an academician should be and raised questions that needed to be asked. Unz, with all his intellect, “missed the boat.” Considering the amount of vitriol he used belittling “anti-vaxxers” in the comments, Unz really should own up to his mistakes if he is really sincere regarding what he stated in his email to Kevin Barrett.

    You write (in relation to my comment that MH370 was commandeered electronically and landed in Diego Garcia):

    This seems highly fanciful to me

    Most people that haven’t done the hard yards and researched the matter on a range of issues (ie: you), would likely also respond that the explanation for the collapse of the Twin Towers and Bldg 7 on the day of 9/11 due to a controlled demolition would also appear ‘fanciful’ – but that doesn’t detract from that fact that it is 100% true.

    Anyway, I’m not going to spoon feed you and spend time locating all the necessary links that will enlighten. Meanwhile, a lot of stuff that was available on You Tube relating to this matter has since been taken purged. I suggest you run the following key words through search engine Yandex and video website BitChute.com, either individually or in combination, to get an education:

    Field McConnell, MH 370 Diego Garcia, Boeing Uninterruptible Autopilot (BUAP).

    Meanwhile, I located this audio interview on short notice which fills in some of the blanks:

    Before you listen to that, you should read this article first:

    https://themillenniumreport.com/2018/05/former-navy-pilot-exposes-truth-about-mh-370-disappearance/

    USMC Lt-Col (ret) Field McConnell was a fighter pilot that flew F4 Phantoms and F-16’s and then had an extensive career as a commercial pilot.
    He is the world’s foremost expert on the disappearance of MH370 and among the top few experts on the specifics of 9/11.
    McConnell is not an ordinary individual. After the disappearance of MH370, he was personally invited by the Malaysian government to travel there and give them an explanation for what happened to MH370 – which he did.

    Because he was a fearless exposer of the truth, the Zio cabal that runs the U.S didn’t take kindly to that and gaoled him on some trumped up charge. He has since been released but is pretty quiet these days – no doubt he and his family were threatened and intimidated to keep his mouth shut.

    You also wrote:

    You’re not the sharpest tool in the shed, are you ?

    Did you recall me saying there was a Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Trubunal ? (Evidently you do because you block quoted my original remark).
    Do you know where K.L is ? Are you not aware that it is the capital of Malaysia ?
    Evidently not.

    Malaysia is a Muslim country and under the Presidency of Mahathir Mohamad, one of the greatest statesmen and seeker of truth of the modern era, his country has been a consistent thorn in the side of the Anglo-Zionist empire and has gone out of his way to bring to the attention of the world, the egregious human rights abuses and genocide being perpetrated by the Apartheid Israeli state.

    So Sarah, has the penny dropped yet ? Have you worked out how Malaysia fits into the puzzle ?

    You also write:

    You can’t claim to not have seen what I wrote – because in the VERY FIRST LINE of your comment to me, contained within the block quote are the words:

    ‘MH370 was electronically commandeered from the ground ….. and …… then landed safely on the U.S military base on Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean’.

    Similarly, I went on to say that MH17 was shot down by the Ukrainians, acting on behalf of their Zionist controllers.

    What don’t you understand about the word ‘UKRAINIANS’ ?

    Yet you go on to say that these two planes were shot down by ISRAEL.

    What don’t you understand about the words: ‘Landed safely on … Diego Garcia’ , in relation to MH370 ??

    You go on to write:

    But this is the case for all airlines! All of them have suffered from the COVID-19 crisis.

    The incidents with MH370 and MH17 occurred in 2014 – well before the Covid Psyop was perpetrated by the Zio cabal.
    How did the other airlines suffer in 2014 from said Malaysia Airlines incident ?

    I would imagine that the other airlines BENEFITTED and INCREASED PROFITABILITY from the additional passengers they picked up as a result of travellers being too afraid to use Malaysia Airlines.

    The Swiss franc started appreciating against the USD immediately after 1971, when Nixon officially took the U.S off the gold standard.
    It was worth a hell of a lot more than the USD at the turn of the century and, despite the Swiss terminating the gold backing of its currency thereafter, it’s momentum held for a couple of years before …… the massive downtrend.

    All your points relating to the benefits of fiat currency have been countered and rendered invalid.
    If you can’t see that, there’s not much I can do for you.
    (I suggest you read some Hans Herman Hoppe or Rothbard and brush up on your Austrian Economics because whatever you’re reading now is badly leading you astray).

    You make the ludicrous assertion :

    That fiat currency is much more powerful to propel economies than gold backed currency.

    Certainly, if a government can print/digitally create countless trillions of dollars, Euros, Yen etc, and dole it out to the ignorant masses, said prols may feel richer in the short term and thus a transient ‘euphoria’ is engendered.

    But, every dollar created reduces the purchasing power of those dollars already in existence as many more dollars are chasing a more or less fixed quantity of output.

    End Result: INFLATION and debasement of the currency.

    So, in that respect, I guess you’re right. Fiat currency can be powerful.

    It is powerful at bringing about impoverishment and misery to their host society.

    CONCLUSION: Fiat currency, if not expanded too recklessly and too quickly, is not as noticeable by the unwashed masses in the way that it incrementally takes away your purchasing power and renders your savings worthless.

    Make no mistake, fiat currency ALWAYS and EVERYWHERE brings about misery and despair.

    Even the Zionist Usury Banking Cartel know this, but they saturate the airwaves with the opposite propaganda because that is their plan – they WANT to impoverish you.

    Unfortunately D.A, you haven’t noticed that you’re being played. I suggest you wake up soon before it’s too late to get yourself some gold or some gold stocks, to protect yourself from the coming implosion of all fiat currencies.

    Lastly, I thought I’d leave you with this brief excerpt from one of the great financial sages of the modern era, as he speaks about the debasement of money that led to the collapse of the Roman Empire:

    Without the booty — especially slaves — coming in from new conquests, Rome too had to turn to monetary policy
    It shaved down the value of the Roman currency — the silver denarius.
    It was 95% silver when Augustus introduced it. A century later, in the time of Trajan, it was only about 85% silver, and the silver kept disappearing.
    By the time of Caracalla, who took over a century later, the coin was reduced to only 50% silver.
    Then, by 268 AD, there was hardly any silver in it at all.

    When the money goes, everything goes. The Empire was then beset by corruption and civil war. It limped along for nearly 200 years more…one calamity after another…until it was finally conquered by ‘barbarians’.

    ….. Bill Bonner.

    Unbacked Fiat currency, by definition, has no gold or silver content.

    It therefore is 100% DEBASED from the get go.

    Accordingly, its collapse is only a matter of time.

    You think prof. Michel Chossudovsky at https://www.globalresearch.ca/ isn’t a reasonable person? What about Jon Rappaport?

    What was the agenda behind using PCR to detect a sickness when the creator of the polymerase chain reaction method, Kary Mullis, specifically stated that, “it doesn’t tell you that you’re sick” when discussing HIV testing? It’s obvious that the PCR test was useless considering all the false positives that were officially counted. How many people were killed due to medical malpractice because they were falsely diagnosed with COVID? Ron Unz doesn’t go there.

    I’ve read bad takes on all sides of the COVID issue. However, the most odious rubbish comes from those that accepted the death counts by the mainstream media as an absolute undeniable truth. Talking heads lie about everything and read verbatim what Reuters and AP put out on the “rip and read.” Regarding the supposed “virus” no journalistic W5 questioning took place.

    Thank you for taking the trouble and the time to answer me.
    However, I know that landing is the most delicate part of a pilot’s training. It is not easy for a pilot to land a plane ; it requires a lot of attention and to be ready for an unexpected event.

    Remote control and safe landing on an airport : assuming that it is feasible, it is not because something would be possible that it has been done. The whole operation seems quite complicated to me.

    If I have the opportunity, I will ask a pilot if it is possible.

    If someone had decided to destroy the plane and make the crew and passengers disappear, it would seem infinitely simpler to shoot it down over a deep ocean with a missile.

    Addendum: the comparison with the destruction of the 9/11 towers seems to me really irrelevant : it is surely much more difficult to hijack a plane from a distance, to land it safely in a precise place, to make the crew and the passengers disappear and probably also ALL THE PARTICIPANTS AND WITNESSES OF THE OPERATION !

    You accuse me of illiteracy, but you can’t even read a forex chart correctly.

    This is the US dollar vs CH franc since 1970. The DROP is in the USD against CHF, and this drop never stopped since then until now. So, conversely, the CHF never stop RISING against the USD.
    So, to make things clear for a dumbass, the chart tells you this: in 1970 you had to pay more than 4 swiss francs in order to buy 1 single US dollar. In 2022 you have to pay just 0.9 swiss francs in order to buy 1 single US dollar.
    Or conversely, in 1970 you had to pay just 0.25 US dollars in order to buy 1 single swiss franc. In 2022 you have to pay 1.1 US dollars in order to buy 1 single swiss franc.

    (https://tradingeconomics.com/switzerland/currency)

    My previous take, that CHF continued to appreciate from 2000 until now, an appreciation of more than 90%, is also correct.
    I make the math to save you the (sheer) effort for your lame head:
    2000 – 1 CHF sells for 1/1.75=0.57 USD
    2022 – 1 CHF sells for 1/0.9=1.11 USD
    CHF appreciation from 2000 to 2022 —> 1.11/0.57 = 1.95 so, more 95%.

    Let’s convene that an appreciation of 95% AFTER it became 100% fiat currency is quite good, no ?

  494. I don’t want to see white nationalists killing each other. What we have in the Ukraine is Russian globalist imperialists fighting western globalist imperialists. I couldn’t care less who wins.

    the turf rule: it’s the Ukranian nationalists who don’t respect it.

    They are similar to the Zionists in trying to recreate a past state while excluding others. The Kivan Rus Putin goes on about included Ukrainians, Russians and Belarusians. The colloquial language was Ukrainian. Wiped out by the Golden Horde. Reassembled within later states – Polish-Liyhuanian Commonwealth and Russian Empire. The Nationalists now want to rule over the Russians, or get rid of them, or eliminate their language, AND add Russian territory. The three languages are very similar

    My apologies – I thought the chart was CHF expressed in USD, rather than the other way around.

    In any case, to the extent that the CHF appreciated Vs the USD over the last 20 years, this is just a reflection of the fact that the Swiss have been far less reckless than the U.S in relation to endless money printing/Quantitative Easing etc.

    Apologies accepted. No hard feelings.

    Sure. I agree completely.
    That’s why I took care of saying that using fiat currencies is delicate matter, and demands a great responsibility and wisdom. Both of them being very scarce today…

    No State will exist in one hundred years. By then global average temperatures will be c.six degrees Celsius higher than today, the tropics uninhabitable for humans, the oceans pretty near dead from acidification and de-oxygenation, the mid-latitudes ravaged by drought alternating with Noahite flooding, and the human survivors, if any, will exist in bands roaming the far north, or ice-free Antarctica, and envying the dead.

    You’ve been very magnanimous D.A.

    I hadn’t been following the year to year gyrations of the Swiss franc and should’ve looked at it more closely before making that call.
    That said, I was aware that the CHF had surged far ahead of the value of the USD a decade or so ago, then retreat to more or less parity with the USD in recent years (so I therefore inferred from the graph that it must have been a depiction of the CHF falling).

    In any case, I was getting too cocky there so my congratulations to you for knocking me off that lofty perch.
    We all need to eat a little humble pie from time to time.

    Mulga, the six degree C higher temp forecast for 100 years hence is the upper range of the forecast from the climate modellers, as I recall ?

    For the sake of argument, let’s just say that it is likely to happen and therefore the world implements a radical De-CarbonDioxidation programme.*

    (*Notice how I didn’t use the term ‘ decarbonisation’ or mentioned ‘Carbon reductions’, like the alarmists do ? Because CO2 is NOT the same as Carbon – just like H2O is not the same as the highly combustible Hydrogen.
    We all know that the alarmists are calling for ‘Carbon’ reductions so as to make it appear as though grimy soot is being produced by industry, and thus conjuring up images of Dickensian England during the Industrial Revolution – a very sneaky little tactic seeing as CO2 is colourless, tasteless, odourless AND ……. 100% non-toxic).

    And let’s assume that the impossible scenario of reducing CO2 emissions to ZERO by 2050 is achieved.
    (It won’t happen, but let’s just assume there’s devine intervention and somehow it happens).

    Are you aware that, by the Climate modellers own calculations, this will only reduce global temperatures by a small fraction of a degree in a hundred years time ?

    So, let’s forget about the 100% reduction target and go for something at least minutely plausible, like a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050. (The chances of even that occurring are negligible but let’s run with it for a moment).

    Do you have any idea how many scores of trillions that will need to be spent on bird chopping wind turbines and fossil-fuel-energy-intensive-to-produce solar panels to achieve that target ???

    Where is the money coming from to pay for that ?
    (And don’t tell me that Zionist Usury Banking Cartel owned central banks can just print it up because, as you’re seeing right now, when many less trillions are printed up, it’s still more than enough to set the world on course for an inflationary depression as more fiat currency chases a fixed quantity of output – thus bidding up the price of commodities and essential items like food).

    Are you aware that the price of minerals like lithium and cobalt, used in battery technology for electric cars, just based on present production figures of E.V’s (which are minuscule in comparison to production of internal combustion engine cars), have gone through the roof ?
    Check out this graph for Lithium over the last 12 months:

    https://tradingeconomics.com/commodity/lithium

    Do you have any idea what would happen to the price of Silver (over USD \$800/kg at the moment) if even a fraction of the projected solar panels were built – let alone the entirety of what is needed to halve CO2 emissions ?

    There would be a fifty-fold increase in the silver price*. (Not that the price really matters – because if even the ENTIRE YEARLY MINING OUTPUT of silver was used for the manufacture of solar panels, that would still be insufficient to build even a fraction of the panels needed).

    Bottom Line: To implement even a 25% reduction in CO2 output from present levels, it would cost the world so much, have flow on effects to the third world that are so catastrophic (ie: the culling of hundreds of millions at an absolute minimum, not to mention the deaths of countless millions in the first world during cold snaps when the renewables cannot keep up with energy demand – witness the debacle in the state of Texas last winter), that it would be orders of magnitude more deleterious than any perceived benefit it would achieve.

    I’ll leave you with the words of a highly respected financial commentator (and sage) Bill Bonner:

    Green/Renewable energy owes its existence on government subsidies (obtained by jacking up the price of fossil fuels), making alternative fuels appear ‘price competitive’.

    All this does is raise energy prices for everyone, reduce economic growth and make the world poorer, colder and darker.

  501. @SS-The Independent

    Can you change your tune at least once a day? Do you dream about Israel and Jews, too? Do you Stars of David when you look in the sky at night? Do you hear Yiddish voices in your head when you wake up at night? Man, get real, FFS.

    DogsBallsGoneWrong, SS-Independent was exactly on the money in his description of you.

    All the things that you said about him are applicable to you – yet another case of projection by an apologist for Zio mischief-making.

  503. LOL. When was the last time you collected your paycheck from Unz for spewing your idiotic garbage here? Jee, I might write to Ron and see if I can join your blabbering herd.

    No more Israel, no more problems.

    Documentary:

    “The Lobby: USA”, where an undercover journalist infiltrates AIPAC and proves how zionist Jews commit crimes against American citizens in American soil (following direct orders from Israeli officials) with full impunity for the political benefit of Israel.

    Upon much reading, rhuminating and cogitating on the matter, PetrO, I find myself in agreenent with you, albeit reluctant. – I hope we’re both wrong.

    It’s a very sad and shitty state if affairs, though not altogether surprising, given that the NWO’s been advertising itself for so long.

    Started on my spud planting today. First bed done. Brasicas, lettus, beets, onions and peas all doing fine. Hubby’s outside right now building me a greenhouse.

    I only wish there were more escapees from the system to share it all with.

    Very best wishes to you and yours,
    Kali.
