“The Russians have decided there is no way to negotiate an end to this. No one will negotiate in good faith; therefore we must crush the enemy. And that’s what’s coming.” Colonel Douglas MacGregor (9:35 minute)

“Strictly speaking, we haven’t started anything yet.” Vladimir Putin

The war in Ukraine is not going to end in a negotiated settlement. The Russians have already made it clear that they don’t trust the United States, so they’re not going to waste their time in a pointless gabfest. What the Russians are going to do is pursue the only option that is available to them: They are going to obliterate the Ukrainian Army, reduce a large part of the country to rubble, and force the political leadership to comply with their security demands. It’s a bloody and wasteful course of action, but there’s really no other option. Putin is not going to allow NATO to place its hostile army and missile sites on Russia’s border. He’s going to defend his country as best as he can by proactively eliminating emerging threats in Ukraine. This is why Putin has called up an additional 300,000 reservists to serve in Ukraine; because the Russians are committed to defeating the Ukrainian army and bringing the war to a swift end. Here’s a brief recap from Colonel Douglas MacGregor:

Washington’s proxy war with Russia is the result of a carefully constructed plan to embroil Russia in conflict with its Ukrainian neighbor. From the moment that President Putin indicated that his government would not tolerate a NATO military presence on Russia’s doorstep in Ukraine, Washington sought to expedite Ukraine’s development into a regional military power hostile to Russia. The Maidan coup allowed Washington’s agents in Kiev to install a government that would cooperate with this project. PM Merkel’s recent admission that she and her European colleagues sought to exploit the Minsk Accords to buy time for the military building in Ukraine confirms the tragic truth of this matter.” (“US Colonel explains America’s role in provoking Russia-Ukraine conflict“, Lifesite)

This is an excellent summary of the events leading up to the present day although we should spend a bit more time on Angela Merkel’s comments. What Merkel actually said in her interview with Die Zeit was the following:

“The 2014 Minsk Agreement was an attempt to buy time for Ukraine. Ukraine used this time to become stronger, as you can see today.” According to the ex-Chancellor, “it was clear for everyone” that the conflict was suspended and the problem was not resolved, “but it was exactly what gave Ukraine the priceless time.” (Tass News Agency)

Merkel has been sharply criticized for admitting that she and the other western leaders deliberately deceived Russia about their true intentions vis a vis Minsk. The fact is, they had no intention of pressuring Ukraine to comply with the terms of the treaty and they knew it from the very beginning. What we know for a fact is that neither Merkel nor her allies were ever interested in peace. Second, we now know that they maintained the fraud for 7 years before she spilled the beans and admitted what they were really up-to. And finally, we now know from Merkel’s comments that Washington’s strategic objective was the opposite of the Minsk agreement. The real goal was to create a heavily-militarized Ukraine that would prosecute Washington’s proxy-war on Russia. That was the primary objective, war on Russia.

So, why would Putin even consider negotiating with people like that; people who just lied-to-his-face for 7 years while they flooded the country with weapons that would be used to kill Russian servicemen?

And what was the objective that compelled Merkel and her Washington colleagues to lie?

They wanted a war, which is the same reason why Boris Johnson put the kibosh on an agreement that Zelensky had negotiated with Moscow in March. Johnson sabotaged the deal because Washington wanted a war. It’s that simple.

But there is a price to pay for lying, and that price comes in the form of distrust, which is the pernicious erosion of confidence that makes it impossible to resolve issues of mutual concern. Russia’s deputy chair of the national Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, expressed his views on the matter just this week in the bitterest terms. He said:

The behavior of Washington and others this year “is the last warning to all nations: there can be no business with the Anglo-Saxon world [because] it is a thief, a swindler, a card-sharp that could do anything…. From now on we will do without them until a new generation of sensible politicians comes to power… There is nobody in the West we could deal with about anything for any reason.” (Ex-Russian President outlines timeline for reconciliation with the West, RT)

Of course, the Washington warhawks will not be bothered by the prospect of severed relations with Russia, in fact they probably welcome it. But the same cannot be said for Europe. Europe is going to regret that it tied itself to Washington’s anvil and threw itself into the sea. Sometime in the near future –when they finally realize that their economic survival is inextricably linked to access to cheap fossil fuel– EU leaders will change course and implement a policy that ensures their own prosperity. They will withdraw from NATO’s ‘forever war’ and join the ranks of civilized nations seeking a secure and economically-integrated future. We expect that even NordStream, which was destroyed in the greatest act of industrial sabotage in the modern era, will be reconnected establishing the main energy artery that binds Russia to the EU in the world’s biggest free trade zone. Eventually, common sense will prevail and Europe will emerge from the slump brought on by its alliance with Washington. But, first, the conflagration between Russia and the West must play out in Ukraine, and the “Guarantor of Global Security” must be replaced by the one nation willing to fight Goliath on his own terms in a winner-take-all contest. Ukraine is shaping up to be the decisive battle in the war against the “rules-based system”, a war in which the United States is going to use ‘every trick in the book’ to maintain its grip on power. Check out this short blurb from political analyst John Mearsheimer who explains the means by which the US has preserved its dominant role in the global order:

“You cannot underestimate how ruthless the United States is. This is all covered-up in the textbooks and the classes that we take growing up because it’s all part of nationalism. Nationalism is all about creating myths about how wonderful your country is. It’s America right or wrong; we never do anything wrong. (But) if you really look at the way the United States has operated over time, its’ really amazing how ruthless we’ve been. And the British, the same is true of them as well But we cover it up. So, I’m just saying, if you are Ukraine and you’re living next to a powerful state like Russia Or you’re Cuba and you’re living next to a powerful state like the United States, you should be very, very careful because this is like sleeping in bed with an elephant. If that elephant rolls over on top of you, you’re dead. You’ve got to be very careful. Am I happy about the fact that this is the way the world works? No, I’m not. But it is the way the world works for better or worse.” (John Mearsheimer, “How the World Works“, You Tube; 1 minute)

Bottom line: The prospects for peace in Ukraine are zilch. The US foreign policy establishment has decided that the only way it can reverse America’s accelerating decline is through direct military confrontation. The war is Ukraine is the first manifestation of that decision. On the other hand, Russia no longer puts any stock in negotiations with the West, because western leaders cannot be trusted to honor their commitments or fulfill their treaty obligations. The irreconcilable differences of the two main parties makes escalation inevitable. Absent a partner that can be trusted, Putin has just one option for resolving the conflict: Overwhelming military force. That’s why he called up 300,000 reservists to serve in Ukraine, and that’s why he’ll call up 300,000 more if they are needed. Putin realizes that the only way forward is by lowering-the-boom quickly and imposing his own settlement on the vanquished. This is exactly what Mearsheimer predicted just weeks ago when he said this:

“The Russians are not going to roll over and play dead. In fact, what the Russians are going to do is crush the Ukrainians. They are going to bring out the big guns. They are going to turn places like Kiev, and other cities in Ukraine into rubble. They’re going to do Fallujas, they’re going to do Mosuls, they’re going to do Groznys …. When a great power feels threatened…the Russians are going to pull out all stops in Ukraine to make sure they win. …You want to understand that what we are talking about doing here, is backing a nuclear-armed great power– that sees what’s happening as an existential threat– into a corner. This is really dangerous.” (John Mearsheimer, Twitter)

So, if we know that Russia is going to try to end the war by defeating the Ukrainian Army, then what should we expect in the near future?

That’s a question that has been answered by a number of analysts who have followed the war closely from the very beginning. We will provide a few paragraphs from each of them in a minute, but first, here’s a recap of the meetings that took place last week that suggest a major Russian offensive may be just weeks away. The excerpt is from an article at Consortium News by Patrick Lawrence:

Alexander Mercouris… recently listed the exceptional series of meetings Putin has held over the past couple of weeks with the entire…. military and national security establishment. In Moscow, the Russian leader met with all of his top military commanders and national security officials (including) Sergei Surovikan, the general he put in charge of the Ukrainian operation….

Putin subsequently flew to Minsk with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu for exchanges with the Belarus political and military leadership. Then it was onward to meet with the leaders of the two republics, Donetsk and Lugansk, that were incorporated via referenda into the Russian Federation last autumn.

It is impossible to avoid concluding that these back-to-back meetings, barely covered in the Western press, portend a new, near- or medium-term military initiative in Ukraine. As Mercouris put it, “Something very big is on the way.”

Among the most interesting encounters in all of this took place in Beijing last week, when Dmitry Medvedev, currently deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council and long close to Putin, had talks with Xi Jinping….

At some point in the not-distant future, the war of hollow rhetoric in behalf of imperial hubris will weaken and drift toward collapse. This degree of Surreal detachment from reality simply cannot be sustained indefinitely — not in the face of a new Russian initiative, whatever the form it turns out to take.” (PATRICK LAWRENCE: “A War of Rhetoric & Reality“, Consortium News)

Is Lawrence, right? Is “something big on the way?

It certainly looks like it. In the space below I have transcribed quotes from recent videos with Colonel MacGregor and Alexander Mercouris, two of the best and most reliable analysts of the war in Ukraine. Both agree that a Russian “winter offensive” will take place in the near future, and both agree on the strategic objectives of the operation. Here’s a clip from MacGregor:

The American people don’t really understand that the Ukrainian Army in the Donbas is on the verge of collapse. They’ve taken hundreds of thousands of casualties… (and) they’re closing in on one hundred and fifty thousand dead. The 93rd Ukrainian Army Brigade was just withdrawn from Bahkmut– which has been turned into a Ukrainian bloodbath by the Russians– and they left after suffering 70 percent casualties. For them, that means that out of 4,000 men… they pulled out with about 1,200 men. That is a catastrophe, but that is what’s really happening. And when the Russians finally launch their offensive, Americans are going to watch this entire house of cards collapse. Then the only question is, will someone finally stand up and put an end to this utterly false narrative.” (“Colonel Douglas MacGregor”, Real America, Rumble; 8:45 min)

And here’s more MacGregor:

It is looking more and more like the Russians would like to complete their task in Donbas first. They want to eliminate all the Ukrainian forces that are in the Donbas… Remember, this was always an economy-of-force measure. It was designed to grind up as many Ukrainians as possible at the lowest possible cost to the Russians. That’s what’s been going on in southern Ukraine (and) it continues. It has worked brilliantly. And Surovikin, the theatre commander, has said that will continue until he’s ready to launch his offensive. When the offensive is launched, it will be a very different battle. But the interesting thing is, that the Ukrainians have taken so many casualties in the South, we are beginning to hear reports that they are on the verge of collapse. And that’s why we’re hearing about teenage boys age 14 or 15 pressed into service. …and we’re getting videos from Ukrainian soldiers saying,”The people in Kiev had better hope that the Russians get to them before we do… because we’ll kill them.” They are talking about people in the government, because they see no evidence that Zelensky’s government …gives a damn about them. They are running out of food and clothes; they are freezing, they are taking heavy casualties, and they are being driven back.” (“Will Ukraine have enough Fire Power?”, Col MacGregor, Judging Freedom, You Tube; 17:35 min)

Both MacGregor and Mercouris appear to agree that the Russian strategy involves “grinding down” the enemy, (killing as many Ukrainian troops as possible) consolidating Russian gains while expanding their control over areas in the east and along the Black Sea, and, eventually, partitioning of Ukraine into 2 separate entities; a “dysfunctional rump state” in the west, and an industrialized, prosperous state in the east. Here’s Alexander Mercouris from a recent update on You Tube:

My strong impression is that ...the focus of the Russian winter offensive –which is indeed coming– will be on ending the battle in Donbas, breaking Ukrainian resistance in Donbas, clearing Ukrainian forces from the Donetsk People’s Republic. It does not look to me as if the Russians are planning some great advance on Kiev or on western Ukraine. That is not what these comments of General Gerasimov say. …the Russians are focusing on Donetsk… It’s ‘low risk’ but it is highly-effective. It is grinding down the Ukrainian Army exactly as General Surovikin said. It is weakening Ukraine’s future ability to continue the war and — at the same time– it fulfills Russia’s primary mission which, from the start, has been the liberation of Donbas.

Now, it is not going to end there. Other Russian officials have been saying that in 2023, we should see the recapture of Kherson region … and there will most surely be other Russian advances in other places. But the main battle was, and remains, Donbas. Once that battle is won, once Ukrainian resistance is broken, the Ukrainian army will be fatally weakened… which means that Ukraine will not only have lost its most heavily industrialized region, and its most heavily fortified zone. It will also mean the Russians will have unimpeded access all the way to the east bank of the Dnieper River. At that point, they will be in a position to cut Ukraine in half. This seems logical to me and it seems clearly to me that this is the Russian plan. They are not making a secret of it, but they are keeping people on-their-toes and guessing about the troops that are in Belarus. But I suspect the primary purpose of those forces is to pin Ukrainian soldiers down …around Kiev from a possible Russian offensive there, and to counter the very big buildup of Polish troops. So that is what Gerasimov has been saying.” (“Alexander Mercouris on Ukraine”, You Tube; 31:35 min)

While no one can predict the future with absolute certainly, it seems that both MacGregor and Mercouris have a good-enough grip on the facts that their scenario cannot be dismissed out-of-hand. In fact, the present trajectory of the conflict suggests that their predictions are probably “dead on”. In any event, we won’t have to wait long to find out. Temperatures are dropping fast across Ukraine which allows for the unencumbered movement of tanks and armored vehicles. Russia’s winter offensive is probably just weeks away.

    Prediction time.

    I’d concentrate forces facing north from the bank of the Dnieper north of Melitopol East to West to Donetsk. Attack and surround Zaporizhzhia Sich and push all the folks out after dropping the bridges. Would constitute a mortal blow to Ukraine. it’s doable with 300,000 men and few thousand tanks backed up by drones and GPS guided missiles. Most of that city is on the wrong side of the river.

    Who knows what Russia might do.

    I’d also look at Toretsk. But that would mean concentrating all in Donbass anyway.

  2. Mercuris is such an incurable optimist that I have stopped watching his videos. He’s like VIA Rail, the Canadian passenger rail service, forever saying what it’s going to do, and nothing ever coming of it. Hope he’s right, though.

  3. When Dr Evil held the “world” up for ransom for 100 billion dollars it was a comedic premise.

    When Zelensky comes to America to collect 100 billion dollars with his hat in hand for more, it’s a farce. And sadly, it’s not a movie.

  6. Everyone is still waiting for a big Russian winter offensive. I realized the Russians could advance a couple hundred miles and we wouldn’t know yet. Putin will not want EU or NATO members to discuss intervening, while our CIA and the Ukes always hide disasters.

    Russia is grinding forward in the Donbas. Maybe this is Putin’s plan to ethnically cleanse the Donbas by forcing all the civilians to leave, and weaken Ukraine by forcing millions more Uke civilians to flee to the EU. The Russians may just slowly grind westward for all of 2023 and force most Ukrainians to flee to the EU to destabilize Europe with millions of unwanted refugees.

    In 1947 President Truman made a speech that became known as the Truman Doctrine…here is an extract:

    At the present moment in world history nearly every nation must choose between alternative ways of life. The choice is too often not a free one. One way of life is based upon the will of the majority, and is distinguished by free institutions, representative government, free elections, guarantees of individual liberty, freedom of speech and religion, and freedom from political oppression. The second way of life is based upon the will of a minority forcibly imposed upon the majority. It relies upon terror and oppression, a controlled press and radio; fixed elections, and the suppression of personal freedoms.

    It seems eveything has been turned upside-down…Truman words descrbing the Soviet Union now descibe the U.S

    that sly old fox putin, played possum for 8 years while the russian bear slowly awoke from it’s long hibernation (sorry for the mammilian mixed metaphors and illustrative alliteration).

    they have been poking the bear so long, that the fools thought they could get away with it forever and now that the bear has come out of his cave, the neocons panicked response is “we need more sticks”.

    the russians have had enough and are now arming for a much bigger war, after cleaning house in ukraine. looking at the long range weather forecast it should be below freezing for the last 3 weeks of january. orthodox christmas is on the 7th and they may wait until then but imo there will be an overwhelming russian response that may draw in u.s., polish, u.k. forces into a coalition of the stupid. if this does in fact happen, they will walk into a bear trap that they, themselves set. imo this is exactly what the russians want and they will utterly destroy all nato mercenaries, troops and equipment and if they are directly facing nato all gloves will come off. my only question is whether or not these zioneocons are stupid enough to actually do this and they may just be that stupid, to tell the truth i’m kinda hoping they do, as that might just be the end of nato, as the cannon fodder “allies” are decimated and their economies and societies crumble, this may be the only hope for them to remove the millstone of nato from their necks before they are dragged down to their predictable doom.

    Actually I can’t see a sudden collapse either, I think the grind will go on. The Ukrainians will be replaced by Poles, Romanians and whatever other mercenary scum the NATO countries can dredge up. The Poles in particular seem to be up for it and I have a suspicion that they are likely to do something completely insane as soon as the tide turns against the NATO proxy forces (I suspect that Uncle Satan has promised them Galicia and a status hike in the EU) Although the RF will continue to take ground it is unlikely the conflict will be ended militarily, Uncle Satan is having far too much fun to give up the game any time soon.

    (Its a sign of the times when a comedian is doing a better job of journalism than most of the so-called journalists)

    The conflict probably be decided by the social and economic collapse of the West.

    Once Polish forces cross the border into Ukraine, they will be slaughtered. Russia will maintain air superiority. They will be paid visits by Mr. Kinzhal, and other hypersonics. Also, Russia has a ballistic missile with MIRVS. All with conventional warheads. The Polish economy cannot sustain such an expeditionary offensive force. Inflation NOW is running at 17% and the deprivation of the population will be severe this winter and beyond.

  29. Scenario: Russian drives which are steadily surrounding Bakhmut/Artemovsk are right now on the verge of cutting that fortress city off from supplies, reinforcements and a corridor of retreat. Anyway, the Ukies’ little Piano Dick Tater has forbidden retreat.

    Over the next week, the vise should have closed, artillery and rocket bombardments of the trapped mice (the rats are back in Kiev) will reach a crescendo. Virtually unbearable psychologically. On about the fifth perhaps the Russians would switch the bombardment to gazillions of leaflets, demanding surrender and promising food, shelter, medical assistance and general good treatment.

    At the same time, high powered loudspeakers will join in. They might inform the Ukie grunts and 15 Y.O. draftees that their ranking officers and nationalist fanatics will threaten them if they raise white flags to surrender. Anticipating that, possibly the Russians will remind those suffering men, that there are worse things than surrender and that they already know that, huddled as they are in freezing trenches and running out of food, clean water, medical supplies and even a bit of warmth. That message could include the fact that there are far more of them that (1. they are still armed and that there are (2. far more of them than there are fanatics following Zelensky’s insane and dehumanizing orders.

    Best of all possible outcomes would be for those approximately 30,000 men will come to the rational decision that it would be better to live.

    Ideal surrender date would be January 7, which is Christmas for both parties to the conflict. Perhaps the Ukrainian soldiers would decide that a nice bowl of borsht and a big hunk of dark rye bread from their Slavic brothers would be a whole lot more appetizing than more of Nudelman’s cookies. That bitch is getting fat anyway and is rapidly coming to look almost as evil as her soul.

    That is the last act, certainly.
    Most likely sequence of moves:
    1) Russia attacks until Ukraine cannot field an effective conventional force.
    2) Increased NATO intervention fails, perhaps after some tit for tat or some escalation. Worst case: US Federal level government panics and becomes ineffective after escalation chain results in Russian Federation destroys a US coastal city, probably New York, NY.
    Best case: Russia captures US tripwire force, US withdraws from NATO to ransom force.
    Very worst case: Launch of US/Russian forces reduces world population by 7 to 7.5 billion people, and moves (3) to (4) don’t happen.
    3) Germany switches sides, Russia provides nuclear protection.
    4) The conflict is decided by the social and economic collapse of the current West, followed soon by social and economic collapse of the rest of the world with the exception of the Russian/European block, which will merely become extremely poor.

    https://www.rt.com/business/569059-russia-turkiye-gas-hub/

    So that’s the same “Türkiye” that’s still NATO’s 2nd most important force, and Russian gas with a Turkish markup is a godsend for Western political puppets commanded to make a mess of global geopolitical economy. At this point there could even be a nuke exchange between Putin and his US-led terrorist partners; as long as it’s only taxcattle doing the all the mass-dying, they can always look forward to a bright future with many opportunities for hostile business in “multipolarity”.

  33. Mercouris: “Something Big Is On the Way”

    I usually watch the Mercouris daily shows, and find him to be quite cautious as a general rule. I see less of MacGregor, but the quotes provided by the author seem to be sensible ones.

    Whatever it coming is bound to be substantial. From the beginning analysts have claimed that Bakhmut is the key to Ukrainian defenses in the East, and this may be why they are so desperately defending the place. All indications are that Ukraine is hanging on by a thread in the city, and a collapse there coupled with the deployment of the new Russian reserves suggests that the coming front line will eventually be the Dnieper River at a minimum.

    Ordinarily this would mean the end of war, but there is a very big wild card in the form of NATO Prestige. And US “credibility”. And Apartheid state desperation.

    I’m now going to speculate on the basis of nothing more than a ‘gut feeling’ that this is why there have been recent high-level – and high publicity – contacts between Russia and China. Biden is a feeble old warmonger who can be easily manipulated, and if our Zionist Overlords order a nuclear reaction to a big Russian victory, both Russia and China need to be prepared for the worst. It’s my understanding China wasn’t warned about the start of the SMO. I’d propose that they’ve been given many details of the “Big” operation coming down the pike. This will allow them to batten down the hatches in many areas, including of course preparing for desperate US economic and military reactions to the Ukrainian defeat I and many others see coming.

    For example, it’s perfectly obvious that a nation willing to steal hundreds of billions of dollars from Russia won’t blink at doing the same to China.

    [1] What is ahead for Russia and Ukraine in 2023? | Nikola Mikovic
    https://globalcomment.com/what-is-ahead-for-russia-and-ukraine-in-2023/

    Excerpt: But Russian President Vladimir Putin does not seem to value human life too much. Although Russian officials claim that the West intends to fight until the last Ukrainian, in reality it is the Kremlin that seems to fight until the last Russian. Quite aware of that, hundreds of thousands of Russians will continue leaving their country in 2023. Indeed, not many Russians are willing to die as cannon fodder so that Putin and his oligarchs can continue selling gas and ammonia to their dear Western partners … Next year will, however, mark the beginning of the end of the Putin regime. Sooner or later, he will either be forced to resign, or will be overthrown, although not necessarily in 2023, and possibly not even before the end of the Ukraine war. From the Western perspective, the longer Putin and his corrupt and incompetent officials and generals stay in power, the better.

    [2] Vladimir Putin: moron or traitor? | Nikola Mikovic
    https://theliberum.com/vladimir-putin-a-moron-or-a-traitor/

    Excerpt: In 2018 the Russian leader explained how he, following the request from his American partners during the Maidan protests in Kyiv in 2014, pressured the then Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych not to deploy troops and crackdown on Maidan demonstrators. As a result, Yanukovych was overthrown, and Putin blamed Poland, France, and Germany for not forcing Yanukovych’s opponents to implement the agreement on a settlement of the political crisis in Ukraine signed on February 21, 2014, by the Ukrainian president and opposition leaders. “Was that the first time that the West deceived us,” Russian journalist – critics would call him a propagandist – Vladimir Solovyov asked Putin. “It was possibly the first time that they deceived us in such a rude and arrogant way,” the Russian leader replied. To this day, Putin continues blaming the West for violating various deals, quite aware that the Russian media will never dare to question the Kremlin’s narrative. In other words, no mainstream figure on the Russian political scene will ever ask if Putin is a complete moron who keeps getting deceived by his Western partners or if he might consciously work for the interests of Russia’s opponents.

    Some Polish media is talking about military preparations for a take-over of former Polish territory in West Ukraine around Lviv (Lwów), with armed columns flying the Polish flag moving in by 4 May, and a referendum to re-annex to Poland in former Polish regions of Ukraine, on 11 July, 80th anniversary of the start of the Volhynia massacre of Poles by Ukrainians.

    Implicit here is a scenario under which the war ends, Zelensky allowing the incursion, Putin giving a tacit ok … the fact that Poles take some of former Ukraine too, making it easier for West to accept Russia has recovered Russian areas to its bosom.

    According to some, Poles have realised:
    – Ukraine cannot ‘win’ the war, only delay the end
    – Poland has realised its bigger, worse enemy is Soros globohomo West who control Brussels: if Zelensky-Ukraine would win, traditional-culture Poland would be targeted & overthrown
    – Poland recovering ancient lands, will help ultra-anti-Russia Poles adapt to reality
    – Poland taking back part of Ukraine will help Western people grasp it is not ‘borders’ but self-determination that is primary (as in Kosovo-Serbia case) … but with respect for all heritage minorities & local culture … peace with Russia can be achieved, with honour for all who fought bravely

    “Sometime in the near future –when they finally realize that their economic survival is inextricably linked to access to cheap fossil fuel– EU leaders will change course and implement a policy that ensures their own prosperity…”

    That otherwise admirable sentence unfortunately contains a huge fallacy. It is the identification of “EU leaders” with “EU nations and citizens”. That, in turn, is a confusion readily made by those who believe that Western “democracy” is real in any way.

    The truth, of course, is that Western “democracy” is completely fake: an elaborate though superficial masquerade just far-reaching enough to allow most of the citizens to go on happily deluding themselves.

    The interests, economic and other, of EU leaders are in no way identical to those of the nations they control. Indeed, in many ways they are the exact opposite. Paul Craig Roberts, a man with deep and long experience of top-level Washington politics, explained this clearly 6 years ago:

    ‘The European founders of the EU are mythical creatures. Washington used politicians that Washington controlled to create the EU.

    ‘Some years ago CIA documents proving that the EU was a CIA initiative were released. See: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/1356047/Euro-federalists-financed-by-US-spy-chiefs.html and http://benwilliamslibrary.com/blog/?p=5080

    ‘In the 1970s my Ph.D. dissertation chairman, then a very high-ranking official in Washington with control over international security affairs, asked me to undertake a sensitive mission abroad. I refused. Nevertheless, he answered my question: “How does Washington get foreign countries to do what Washington wants?”

    ‘“Money,” he said. “We give their leaders bagfuls of money. They belong to us.”

    ‘The record is clear that the EU serves the interests of Washington, not the interests of Europe’.

It’s a bloody and wasteful course of action, but there’s really no other option”.

    And when you recall that for most of the last 1200 years Ukraine has been one of the wealthiest and most integral parts of Russia – that Ukrainians speak Russian and share Russian culture, and that many of the greatest Soviet citizens (such as Khruschev) were Ukrainians – you immediately see what a triumph the current situation is for Russia’s enemies.

    It’s as if the US armed forces were incurring thousands of casualties and spending immense amounts of ammunition levelling, say, California or Illinois, while killing and maiming hundreds of thousands of their inhabitants. Russian strikes on Kiev are roughly analogous to US strikes on New Orleans or Boston.

    What the West has accomplished is to turn Ukraine, once the most prosperous part of Russia and the USSR, into a cancerous organ much of which must be bloodily and painfully hacked away if the patient is to survive.

    @The seventh column

    I think the best explanation is that the Russians – while not deceived or over-optimistic – went in realising that many scenarios might arise. The one we have seen is close to worst-case. The Kiev junta might have buckled right away; Russian troops might have captured them; the Ukrainian army might have rebelled or refused to fight.

    Instead, not only did the junta have means of forcing or deceiving Ukrainians to fight in the belief that they were justified; NATO supplied more and more weapons, ammunition, and even soldiers – as well as the state-of-the-art intelligence and targetting info they have given Kiev ever since February, and earlier.

    The Russians must have known that they might end up using Kiev as a lever to demolish NATO; but they probably hoped it wouldn’t come to that.

    It has, and I think we shall see that the Russian plans for this near-worst-case contingency are more than adequate. Remember that, after all, what we are witnessing is essentially a civil war. The precedent of the “American Civil War” is not encouraging for Kiev or Washington.

    These people and their minions are of course intensely hostile to Russia, especially now that it has returned much more to its traditional values. They desire nothing more than the partition of Russia into statelets subservient to the West generally and America in particular. These statelets would be plundered for their resources and their economies controlled by Western corporate interests, many of them Jewish. That is their aim.

    Despite being a miniscule minority in Ukraine – less than 1%, maybe as low as 0.12%, 3 out of the top 5 Ukrainian oligarchs are Jewish. The wealthiest, Kholomoisky, bankrolled Zelensky’s bid for the presidency. He also controls the Azov Regiment, which most people regard as his private army. Haaretz, a few years ago, claimed he was the most powerful Jew in the world. Zelensky’s Ukraine is very much a Zionist project.

    Ukraine, the New Khazaria as a new refuge land for secret elites

    Putin, who played a key role is only a tool. Even with his appearance of indomitable character, he is only a figure, a kind of queen on a chessboard. Putin plays for the same team as the world’s elite, who is moving the center of power from the United States to a new one consisting of Russia and China. Ukraine is the new, promised land for the Jewish elite, free from the Ukrainians.

    There should be no more than 8 million population on Ukraine. Elites have decided already

    Eugeni Gilbo: As far as I know there are a lot of supporters of this “wise” idea in the Ukraine, but it is just a consequence of inadequate perception of reality and unwillingness to even think about what are the goals of the world corporatocracy regarding Ukraine. Where do you see the sovereignty? The Ukraine no longer exist, only the media hub is what’s left. They will not even disclose what will happen tonight to this designated puppet Poroshenko.

    Ukrainian oligarchs still naively hope that they will stabilize the remains of the country. So does idiots too. But I know the plans of the structures that make decisions, and it’s clearly spelled out that the Slavic population in Ukraine, after the ethnic cleansing, will remain under 8 million.

    INSIDER DAILY: And here, the shadow elite immediately made it clear that the population of present-day Ukraine isn’t needed. We have already written in their articles about what the elites need from Ukraine, considering that 27% of the fertile lands of the planet Earth are in Ukraine. In Ukraine, which will accommodate about 8 million slaves will be transferred into very high quality global agro-plantation. Russians from Russia, according to the plans of the elites, will serve as slaves, providing raw materials for the needs of the future global Zion. Europe is predestined for very unenviable role too. Europe is very resource consumption intensive continent. European high standard of living is not favorable for the elites, awaiting for her quick Islamization, genocide of rebellious enclaves and degradation which will as a consequence lead to falling living standards and much lesser resource consumption. About what will happen in America, we are writing a separate article.

    This is the depopulation agenda laid out as clearly as it was in the Protocols. Ukraine and Russia will both disappear. “Ukrainians” and “Russians” will once again become Khazarian slaves.

    [MORE]

    Eugeni Gilbo: You are not even close to understanding what I mean. As with all of the former Ukraine. War propaganda through media here is not enough, you are just being merely anesthetized before euthanasia. Ukraine was sentenced not only to euthanasia but rather genocide. It was decided that the Slavic population in the region should not be present. Between the Russian Federation or of her remains and Europe should be culturally alienated space.

    Oligarchs thought that the owners will be satisfied if they just cut out all the Russian and Ukrainians and leave only the Galicians. They are wrong. Decision is to carry out the ethnic cleansing of all Slavs. The fact that plebeians do not want to understand, nor hear – means that it will be carried out easily. In Syria, the Alawites, were aware of the question of genocide that’s why they still hold.

    Ukrainian correspondent: But it’s not in the interests of the Russian Federation! How will Putin do it?

    Eugeni Gilbo: Well, atleast you realize that it is not in the interests of the Russian Federation either. Maybe, after a course of psychiatric treatment you will grasp that all of this is not done by Putin or some other media figure.

    War is led by global corporatocracy against Russia. World corporatocracy does not think in terms of Ukraine or Russia. They don’t care at all about the governments. This Ukrainian brainwash only gives illusion that something is decided by Obama, Putin or “Brussels sprouts”. In reality, they are here just to arbiter what’s already happened. Though they are not always told in advance of what’s going on.

    In Ukraine they still believe that the Crimea was taken by the Russian military. In reality, Putin learned that they will take the Crimea, 10 days before the referendum and he was very surprised to say at least, although Kissinger made quite clear hint few weeks earlier.

    Well, it is Anglo-Saxons who provide financing, intelligence, training and Anglo-Saxon made weaponry to Ukraine. So, for all intents and purposes, it is the Anglo-Saxon world that is at war with Russia. The fact that the Anglo-Saxon world is ruled by Jews is irrelevant to Russia.

    Absolutely spot on. To present the levelling of Ukraine as a Russian triumph, even a success of policy, is something only a shill can do. However my explanation for the apparent idiocy of the Russian rulers is that they are colluded. This is not a genuine war, it is an agreed profit-making, population-controlling enterprise agreed within the international cabal.

    I do feel curious about the psychology of the Putinian Russia supporters in December 2022. It just doesn’t make any sense! I would understand old, frail boomers clinging to their precious television sets (even if on the Internet), but this isn’t even the propaganda that the Russians themselves believe! It’s an active choice of manufacturing one’s own personal bubble.

    Just a quick recap of the year and the past 8 years:
    1) Putin could have easily preserved Yanukovich in 2014, or carved out Novorussia if he had so chosen, instead, he left the people of Donbass serve as punching bags and anti-advertisement of the Russian world;
    2) in 2022, he led the best Russian forces to advance through Pripet marshes to die with nothing to show for it;
    3) attacked from 8 different directions, reaching zero strategic objectives (neither encircling the Ukrainian army in Donbass, nor taking Odessa, nor sabotaging Ukrainian logistics on the Polish border or on the Dniper River);
    4) no mobilisation until September 2022;
    5) no drones, no guided munitions, leading to the outdated artillery shooting blind, and to the supply depots being blown up by HIMARS;
    6) annexing the Tavrida governorate, then promptly retreating from Kherson, leaving any hope of ever resuming the advance on the right-bank Ukraine;
    7) wasting precious missiles on civilian infrastructure, failing even at that.

    Again, all of this lies right on the surface, and if anyone is curious about what real Russians think, here are Igor Strelkov and Evgeny Mikhailove (alongside Sofa Legion Strategist @ YouTube).

    So far, if Poland does join in on the fun in 2023, I expect a Russian military defeat, chaos, starvation, but not before both Poland and Ukraine eat up a few hundred Russian nuclear strikes. This way, the victory of Jewry in Western Eurasia will be complete, and the last potential bastion of anti-Christian Aryandom destroyed.

    I still don’t believe anything special will happen soon.

    I’ll give you this, you’ve made an (admirably) terse prediction that cannot be wrong. It seems to me that special stuff has been happening for some time in the Ukraine.

    As my comments attest since the February SMO kickoff, Russia will achieve its objectives in creating a landlocked rump in Ukraine.

    Winning powers don’t underestimate their adversaries. They also accept their opponents’ strengthens and convert them into weaknesses, or at least exploit them.

    I note that less and less has been said about the Information War as this year has progressed. Russia was revealed as hopelessly outgunned on this score yet, like so many other wiz-bang capabilities the USG spent a mint constructing, its so come a cropper they won’t talk about it because to do so just makes them feel bad about themselves.

    I won’t belabor it. Suffice it to say that, considered in its totality, it’s morphed into a monumental anti-persuasion operation. It’s been so autonomically pathetic that all Russia had to do was play it straight and let the USG, headlined by President Joe Biden!, collapse American influence globally at a pace so rapid it had to be by design.

    My essential point is that the USG has utterly failed in its information war objective of shaping public opinion so that foreign governments stayed on Team Neocon.

    Thus, accepting the predicate that Russia will in the coming year, likely rather early in it, achieve its objectives in Ukraine, I assess that the USG will be forced to clarify the battle lines. What’s still playfully referred to as Ukraine is Kaput. Next up to be the tip of the spear is Poland, with Romania penciled in as a junior partner.

    That is where the analytical and speculative focus belongs at the moment. Unlike Ukraine and the benighted Ukrainians, Poland and the Polish people have been indisputable beneficiaries of post 1989-91.

    The more you know about the relevant events of the 20th C. the more you appreciate the rock and hard place Poland was in. Sitting between the Third Reich and the Soviet Union was not the hand of dealt cards anyone would ever want to have to play.

    Poland has got a lot to lose this time and will have no one to blame but themselves if they do.

    The 75 year history of lies, deceit, agitprop and propaganda that have seen us send our kids home in body bags, or, through Walter Reed, sans their appendages for a fantasy and a trick of fame, is a disgrace that seems to never end.

    Make no mistake about it, from the bodies of every dead man woman and child, Ukrainian and Russian that are stacked like firewood in the streets, exsanguinating into the gutters, there is a straight line reference to our Intelligence Agencies, our State Department, our government and the corrupt, venal, obscene politicians who manipulate the American electorate and murder foreigners for profit.

    The pretense that Ukraine is a democracy is preposterous. It is now and has been, a U.S. taxpayer laundering scheme concocted by gangsters in Washington D.C. (Most notably, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Pelosi, Romney and of course the Clintons and the Bidens.), who have bled the country dry by diverting that same tax payer money into No Show jobs, PAC organizations and various and sundry “pay for play” schemes that enriched our elites, devastated our middle class and murdered the unfortunate foreigners who were shoved into the American foreign policy wood chipper.

    This is just another, “Gulf of Tolkin”, “Weapons of Mass Destruction” lie that is fed to the world in order to make bank on the backs of the dead.

    We are not as evil as Hitler, Stalin and Mao at this point, but, we are certainly approaching Pol Pot territory.

    Respectfully, with your permission, I ask, what is to be done?

    The “Intelligence” Agencies that assassinated the Kennedys, now turns it’s murderous eyes to us. “Domestic Terrorists’ who will not buy into the lies anymore.

    Mao said that “Power stems from the end of a gun barrel”. This is EXACTLY how our “Intelligence” Agencies operate. There is no rule of law, no Constitution and the rules of engagement are at the whim and caprice of beadles like Alexander Vindman. You have no rights, no recourse, no redress.

    This is tyranny and at this point, all Americans should know, anything, ANYTHING they do to resist, no matter what, is moral, ethical and yes, you are on the side of the angels.

    Bio Weapons, Digital Currency, Vaccination passports, the actual end of the 1st and 2nd Amendments is evidence of the inexorable, undeniable total and complete control over our lives by these traitors and tyrants.

    The most prosperous former Soviet republics (excluding Russia) were the current Baltic statelets, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. This is from my Russian contacts and also from official GDP per capita figures.

    Plus the vectors of state-planned economy. When this is factored in you get regions and republics which have for example lots of shoes and tractors but low protein and no fruits, and vice versa.

    People forget thus, that when comparing GDP, local market conditions, climate, and average wage, the best places to live included Georgia and Armenia. And of course, the three Baltic states. The poorest and least developed where the Central Asian republics.

    The Ukraine + Belarus + Russia (in other words “European Russia + Eurasian Russia”) were the paypigs sponsoring the empire through extraction of resources and heavy industry and keeping their own peasants and plebs in a pretty melancholic state of quality of life. Giving more than taking out of the communal pot, very much at the expense of the native Slavic proles.

    Just another faucet of the absurdity of the Soviet version of the Russian Empire — the only empire which, instead of extracting wealth from its colonies, propped them up instead (including the whole of Eastern Europe via subsidized gas and oil and other resources) by extracting wealth from itself.
    https://dzen.ru/a/YL4IURs_XCImnwdl

    While the Ukraine was not one of the happiest or most affluent republics, it did inherit:
    1) Half the heavy industry of the USSR
    2) Most of the good agricultural land
    3) The first echelon Soviet armed brigades designed to meet NATO head on (Russian inherited the older second echelon). Including intercontinental bombers, spy ships, and so on.
    4) Major warm sea access

    Had this inheritance been used with at least some semblance of competence, keeping in mind the much better climate and land than in most of Russia or Belarus or the Baltics, the Ukraine should have by now become if not the Eastern France, then at least the Eastern Italy of Europe.

    Didn’t happen. Not enough people inside the Ukraine wanted it to happen, not enough people outside of the Ukraine wanted it to happen.

    Thing is, once you let your country become a global corrupt front for money laundering and wealth redistribution, sooner or later someone will decide to feed you into grinder to achieve their own grand objectives, and you will no longer have the ability to not allow that to happen.

    It also tangentially had something to do with a family member, I think a grandmother that was Mercouris’s responsibility to care for, who was succumbing to Alzheimer’s disease. He was under a lot of psychological pressure. Even the disbarment committee (whatever you call it) said that it was a shame, but he was permanently disbarred. I read a write up about it; it was sad. I’ve also gotten the vibe from watching the videos that he himself is in poor health.

    I too thought that Russia was going to make quick work of the Ukraine thing. But evidently at the start there was significant resistance to the idea of war in the Russian populace and Putin had to be careful in dealing with the problem and not completely losing public support. Now it seems the Russian people have finally gotten the memo that the Collective West gangsters intend to dismantle Russia. Explicitly saying so in the media, repeatedly, probably helped. Then Angela Merkel’s recent remarks no doubt confirmed it. They’re evidently totally on board now.

    I think the next escalation provocation for the US/NATO will be when the Russians completely remove the Ukrainian air defense system (and I gather that’s right on the cusp) and start using heavy bombers dropping gravity bombs. I’m curious what their response will be.

    This thought that Europe will at some point have had enough and will decouple from the neocon agenda seems to be a silly notion and was the teaspoon of dung that ruined the gallon of good soup in this article.

    Does the author think that the people of Europe have a say? Even if they did, the 30% that didn’t take the ‘jab’ would be the only pool to draw from and the street whores that are propelled into the top positions of any European government don’t feel too threatened when backed by 70% of the peasants.

    Very good points. The US suzerainty of Europe is conditional on three US services to Europe:
    1) No nuclear or wide scale mechanized war on European territory. (No WW II repetition.)
    2) Moderate prosperity in Europe (no repetition of the 1930s failure of regulatory authorities).
    3) Free access to raw materials through free(ish) trade over open sea lanes using a universally accessible banking system (SWIFT, US Dollar, etc.). In effect, this enables service (2).

    So far, the US has not quite failed in delivery of these promises, although it has come very close and one could say that it has broken (2, 3). The longer the Russian Federation (RF) / Ukraine conflict

    If the US cannot win the RF / Ukraine conflict, that is if RF prevails, then US will have demonstrated that it cannot provide (1) anymore. If the US commits US forces to Ukraine soil on a larger scale than simple SOF, or if RF destroys NATO sites that provide battlefield intelligence to Ukraine, or if anybody uses a tactical or radiological weapon in or near the Ukraine theater, this will demonstrate that the US cannot deliver service (1).

    Nothing ends suzerainty quite as well as a demonstration that the suzerain cannot provide the security (or execute the threat) that maintains the suzerain relationship. Since there is no Imperial administration, but rather local rule carried out to avoid a threat or gain a service, the subject nations retain a local administration capable of quickly changing sides.

    Right now, there are major European demonstrations through mass assemblies tha5 favor ending US suzerainty. EU and the European governments retain a client relationship with the US suzerain because of US threats, not because of greatly diminished US services (1,2,3). They can only do this for a limited time. A conspicuous US loss against RF, coupled with enhanced popular opposition to US suzerainty, and an RF agreement to protect former NATO against US nuclear retaliation, should be enough to permit European governments to change sides. But is a conspicuous US loss against RF possible?

    The US appears able to hand RF a major victory. US leadership (which has been Black coalition since Obama’s second term) is relying on its post-WW II escalation dominance for a US victory. I would hazard a guess that the US lost escalation dominance when
    (a) Putin announced the success of his his nuclear modernization program [1], and
    (b) RF’s diplomatic corps decided that the US was “not agreement capable”.

    My guess is that the US will continue bluffing by “doubling down” until the stakes have become so high that the bluffers will be removed from power by factions internal to the US government [2]. “Nuclear false alarms” [3] show that the internal structure of governments is highly reluctant to use nuclear weapons. The “false alarms” looked real at the time, and under existing rules of engagement at the time (“Launch on Warning”) should have caused immediate launch of at least one country’s missile/bomber nuclear forces.

    Much depends on the success/failure of the next major RF drive in Ukraine. If the RF drive fails, US suzerainty might yet win. If the RF drive succeeds, US suzerainty fails. And, of course, Ukraine fails both ways.

    Mercouris expertise is to some extent geopolitics and history, but he decided to turn himself into a military analyst. At first he kept saying … I am not a military person, but gave that up. He is giving his audience what they want to hear. He has never spoken a single word (maybe a couple) of criticism of Russia … Russia is perfect.

  112. A terrific predictive piece, the accuracy of which will be fascinating to observe in coming months. I still struggle with the notion that Merkel’s admission regarding Minsk was some sort of Freudian slip. She is far too smart for that to be the case. The map of American bases provides priceless insight. This is what you get when you bestow “chosen” status on any group of human beings, it brings out the worst that resides within us. While stated Russian objectives for Ukraine abound (liberate Donbas, de-Nazification, re-build the USSR), I remain convinced that “breaking the buck” will prove to have been the true objective all along. Loss of “reserve” currency status and the resulting sustained advance of Treasury yields as international investors refuse to hold unsecured obligation of an “Empire of lies” will force closure of the majority of US foreign military bases and usher in an opportunity to rebuild a more balanced world order. The recently established and rapidly expanding international economic cooperation agreements coupled with the fiscal insanity being demonstrated by Washington forms a basis for solid optimism that Russia’s true strategic objective will be realized in the fullness of time.

What exactly that will be is anyone’s guess. Maybe 100-150 Iranian mini subs will release sarin gas along Israel’s coast whilst Hezbollah rains rockets on Tel Aviv.

Are there that many Poles, Romanians, Hungarians, and Western mercenaries there in Ukraine and fighting the Russians?

    I have always doubted the neocon and neolib propaganda, but recently I have started to doubt the counter-propaganda as well. This really all may very well be a Jewish dialectic with both sides as Jewish tools for the purpose of “Heavenly Jerusalem” being carved out in southern/eastern Ukraine.

    No concern about the non-Jews of Ukraine? It’s all about Jews. Are any Ukrainian soldiers Jewish? Certainly not many if any. Christian nations warring against other Christian nations. Who cares about all the dead and dying in these wars, the Jews sure don’t.

    Well Anglin’s White Nationalist and Incel Keyboard Reserve seems to believe that White soldiers killing White soldiers is a win against the Jews. You see Zelensky is Jewish so if a White Russian kills a White Ukrainian in a trench then the Zelensky loses. Yes that Ukrainian might have a family but it is Zelensky and the Jews that will suffer.

    A real brain trust.

    Oh and they don’t talk about how a Jewish chef is in charge of the Russian front. Putin promoted a hospitality director into military contracting. He has zero military experience and was providing the military with meals up until 2012. That same chef ripped off a child’s charity. It all sounds crazy but is entirely true. That is what happens when you let a half pint mobster run a country.

    Putin’s chief propagandist is also Jewish and so are some of his oligarch pals.

    But the White Nationalist/Incel Reserve doesn’t like talking about such realities so they ignore them. Zelensky is Jewish and that is all that matters. Now let’s get back to the killing!! Moscow Macgregor give us your monthly report on how they are doomed next month.

    Is the Russian Ruble not tied to gold? Do you not get gold for your Rubles any time you like?
    Is the Russian Ruble not a commodities’ backed currency?
    The Russian Ruble seems as real and as strong and solid as the country is large and full of everything.
    The switch from paper into digitals seems just that. Is your fear the unearned adding of digits; e.g. 10 K instead of 1 K? Forgery? Counterfeiters at the keyboards?
    From afar it seems that Russia has zero interest in adding digits and with it inflation.
    I would not be surprised if you end up getting golden kopeks…
    The real New World seems to be stocking up on gold like mad: Turkey is mining like hell, China is buying gold and more gold and more commodities of everything from Russia. India is a bottomless barrel for gold (and now Russian oil too – selling it off to Jew Yolk);
    The digitization seems in many fields inefficient.
    The digi-carrot was, not needing much paper in future.
    Just the opposite happened. More and more stuff needs to be printed to be on the safe side.
    See Jewkraine now without power: where is the digit money without electricity?
    What is heat without flame. E.g.: Jewermany forced me to fire up with wood.
    It is more work, costs me less and gives me the real thing…
    Same with petrol engines… Gasoline is power – power to the people.
    You are right, centralizing money via digitization is barking up the wrong tree; the Jew’s solitaire.
    Since Russia is leading an epic war against The Banksters, sorry – against Nazis, the last thing it needs, to make its cashflows dependent on electricity.
    All these “musicians” want the real thing and even more so when they return to civil life. No government will want to piss off the fighters, because they are awake now.

    I know you are on here to peddle arguments that might appeal to anti-Semitic readers and to square that circle with pro Zelenskyy conclusions. Sometimes the formulation is quite entertaining. But your obsession with Wagner Group is all very tiresome. The Kiev Regime is extremely Jewy. It’s hard to get around the visage of Zelenskyy, Klitschko, Blinken, Nuland…and more shadowy characters like Ihor Kolomoyskyi

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ihor_Kolomoyskyi

    “Kolomoyskyi initially dismissed suggestions of separatism in Dnipropetrovsk. However, his then-deputy, Borys Filatov argues that Kolomoyskyi, as governor, proceeded to do “a great deal to prevent the so-called Russian Spring taking over” in the region. In April, Kolomoyskyi offered a bounty for the capture of Russian-backed militants and incentives for the turning in of weapons. On 3 June 2014, Kolomoiskyi offered a $500,000 reward for the delivery of Oleg Tsaryov, a leader of the separatists, to the law enforcement agencies of Ukraine. He drafted thousands of Privat Group employees as auxiliary police officers. Kolomoyskyi is also believed to have spent $10 million to create the Dnipro Battalion, and to have provided funds for the Aidar, Azov, and Donbas volunteer battalions.”

    Yevgeny seems like he was a late comer organizing these Mercenary Outfits.

    There were around 6,000 of these PMC Wagner a year ago and now there are 50,000 mercenaries in the organization. I’m sure that the regular Russian Army is looking at this with alarm too. Yevgeny Prigozhin’s expanding cadre now contain around 20,000 convicts, while before it was made up of notable specialist ex-servicemen. The MOD there will probably clip his wings soon enough. If he’s consolidation this much power he will have regular generals gunning for him.

    By all means keep talking about Wagner though but don’t fail to mention Privat Group. It beats the points you were flailing around with Putin’s mansion/palace in the Black Sea.

    All true except you neglect the fact that the world’s oldest continuous civilization is a participant on the side of Russia — and despite the daoist appearances, are fully cognizant of the fact that the rule of the west is/was based on the mechanism of killing at large and local scale. Contrary to simple reductionism to Buddhistic/Daoist principles, the Art of the War is an immutable force in China’s thinking.

    Just how was a country defending itself against the onslaught of Japanese aggression able to pick itself up, throw out the Kuomintang and then repel US forces in Korea? Do you think China is any less well positioned militarily today than 1951? If you think the Chinese will just fold you have no knowledge of history or civilization. Neither should you believe that they do not know the Jew or the evil of the Talmud, the diametric opposite to the eastern philosophies.

    And despite a painful break in the 60s, the two original communist giants are again comrades-in-arms against a west which has never reformed itself — and now must be reduced by external forces to ashes, giving the West the possibility of a Phoenix-like re-emergence into a multipolar world. Medvedev and Xi in Beijing may be the first sign that the next generation is being prepared for this struggle. Bet against them at your own peril.

    Although sadly the Talmudic Jew cannot be eliminated, as Gibson so rightly wished, it may be possible for it to be neutered through the crashing/seizing/forfeiture of financial assets. These financial assets, with ancient roots in usury and the Pharisees, are foundation above all for the venom injected everywhere in the west. Jack Ma, in fact, was a Talmudic Jew from the standpoint of his insatiable greed, and he is today denatured.

    The US can’t understand why they’re not attracting many recruits to their private armies: The 300th Industrial Lesbian Infantry Unit, with inducements of free power tools and free neck and face tattoos or the 125th Caitlyn Jenner regiment with free cosmetics, little black dresses and pumps. General Petraeus was quoted as saying that low recruitment is due to anti-LGBTQ propaganda and false news perpetrated by Trump and Putin. In February 2023, a Congressional Investigative Committee will convene, chaired by Secretary of Truck Stop Restrooms, Pete Buttigeig and Undersecretary for Unhealthiness, Rachel Levine. It has been suspected that the quality of the power tools (mostly cheap Chinese no name brands liberated by joggers in Buffalo) or the cheap, low quality cosmetics (also liberated by joggers in Buffalo) might be part of the problem. CNN commentator Don Lemon has opined, the whole thing is caused by racism and white privilege and that the joggers need to be transported out to the “whiter” suburbs where better quality power tools and cosmetics can be liberated.

    Also the point about Russia needing winter to beat Napoleon or Hitler is only partially true. Or at least just locally true. It made a huge difference just outside Moscow when Guderian made a final lunge and it actually helped the Panzers rather than hindered them.

    There’s a counter example. We know that Hitler favored attacking into Kiev and Donbas. Some of that was because the weather in the South was expected to be better. Guderian was telling several lies about the why of

    I see the situation a little differently.

    The cult of devil-worshiping, demon-possessed, theistic Satanists who run the U.S. “government” understand perfectly well that America” is in “accelerating decline” and they understand that this decline cannot be reversed (because America is corrupt beyond redemption, largely thanks to them), so what they seek to do to stay on top is what they have been doing for a long time: trying to bring everyone else down. Put simply, the Satanists are engaged in a global game of Satanic whac-a-mole and now they are up against Russia, so this time the “mole” is doing most of the the whacking.

    Or how much they looted.

    Y. Prigozhin has since repented of his 1991 position.

    But Justice will catch up with them one way or another.

    @Notsofast

    There has been alot of talk from Mercouris and others since October that once the ground freezes then the advance can start. The problem is the freeze was a bit late starting and then it completely reversed in the last two to three weeks and the current temperatures over a wide swath of Western and Central Europe into Ukraine is way above freezing and it is very unusual. See URL.

    And this brings us to the question. There has been much speculation over the years that the US military is involved in weather manipulation and if it is possible, it is unlikely to be at a fine scale but more a case of disrupting trends. The current weather situation is that the North Atlantic Oscillation (NSO) has been in a positive phase. It is an index that relates Icelandic low pressure to Azores high pressure. When it is positive it leads to the current weather pattern that has led to seasonally above normal temperatures. It may be possible via various methods and perhaps some form of “chemtrails” or whatever it might be, through creating hazes to somehow raise the NSO index for a while at least.

    And if there was ever a single case where control of the weather would work in your favour, surely this one, that has prevented the ground from freezing and thus stalling the Russian offensive would be it? Heck if they could continue that right into Feb, the ground might never freeze long enough for a campaign for the Russians to get in there and accomplish their tasks.

    It is clear from the way US / NATO provoked this war and have lied successfully via the propaganda to the Western populations, that there is nothing they will not try and the above is raised because we cannot be absolutely sure what capabilities do exist in this area.

    And who would then occupy Ukraine? Perhaps it would be better as just one big neutral-de-industrialized farmland, with the production requisites supplied by Russia? A kind of benevolent Russian Morgenthau Plan?

    Or could there be some other plan of occupation of this national void? It’s not that it wasn’t sought in the past:

    “The Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee, an alliance of leading Soviet and American Jews, proposed turning Crimea into a Jewish republic. Crimea hosts Sevastopol naval base, which gives Russia access to the Mediterranean. Without it, Russia is no longer a great power.
    The proposal for a Jewish Crimea was deemed a military risk by Stalin and Khrushchev. By that time, they sensed that Jews were aligning with the United States.”
    Andrey Diky: Jews in Russia and in the USSR

    Israel is demographically doomed and has fulfilled its missions, not the least of which (though unlikely in the eyes of most ordinary Jews and Zionists) was to act as an imperialist base inside the oil rich Middle East. That was long ago superseded by direct and illegal US military interventions.

    Also superseded is any respect for the territorial integrity of Russia, or in fact, of any nation by the Zionist leadership. They now think they own the world and that Russia is a pushover. To this effect it is worth noting the long time focus in USA military academies on the mistakes “Hitler” made in Operation Barbarossa. This has proved anything but “academic”.

  221. The US elite and political establishment cannot even control their own southern border or allow a free media and elections inside their own country, the military is a graft cartel and money-sucking black hole that cannot win wars and relies on cheap gas for survival, and the only real strength left is the propaganda machine and self-licking tech-media matrix which is totally divorced from reality and cruisin’ for a bruisin’.

    Not a winning situation for the Nazi West, and Russia will save the world again just like they did in WWII, so pop a glass of bubbly for brighter days in 2023 and chillax everybody!

    This is something I said back on August. Anyone who depends on winter being a factor is assuming too much.

  242. Not just weapons! The neocon schemers not only used weapons and military training but also fostered extreme ideological racism to indoctrinate and prepare Ukrainians for war against Russia. This was known by all the Western leaders, so those few admissions are inadvertent confessions of grave wrongdoing – they are actually proud of their Deal with the Devil.

    The incessant references in the corporate media to the threat of “Russian aggression” and “Russian meddling” were part of this hybrid war waged through influence of public opinion, not only in Ukraine but also in Europe and the US. US-backed agencies such as the NED and the NGOs funded by certain Jewish oligarchs, supported ultra-nationalist gangs to violently oust Ukraine’s elected government. They enabled this powerful cult based on hatred of Russians and longstanding grudges against the USSR to escalate the military assault on the Russian people in the Donbass who resisted and stood in the way of the neocons’ intended conquest of Russia.

    The dream of the Greater Israel up north is now gone. Since Jews control the media, the Presidency, the State Department, we shall soon hear their lamentations of agony. They will try to kill Putin, no doubt about it. The only question is whether they will escalate this to nuclear war.

    The Jews made a huge strategic mistake and now Ukraine is lost to them forever. Which is why these mad Jews may try to sacrifice Poland and Germany, etc. They don’t care how many Goyim die, they just demand to win no matter what the cost to us.

    Totally agree Anarchy, happy new year, let’s continue the awakening next year with even more intensity.

  255. The US foreign policy establishment has decided that the only way it can reverse America’s accelerating decline is through direct military confrontation.

    Says who? Just who is directing this shit show? Who is calling the shots, who is making this war happen? It’s the Jews, the Jews want Ukraine and since the Jews control the United States they are using their dirty whore to do the Jew wet work. The CIA is 100% aligned with the Zionists. Joe Biden is a Ziopuppet as was Trump. Nuland and Kagan are Jews, as is Blinken, who is said to be Nordstream saboteur.

    And this part about “America’s accelerating decline”. That is the goal of this, to break America’s hold on the world. Who is flooding the nation with violent illegals? Jews. Who wants to take away American firearms leaving white Americans defenseless to hordes of simians and mudbrids? Jews! Who wants to rub out the white race? Jews. Which Israeli PM bragged that America was their golden calf? Oh yeah the one that just got elected again.

    America is a golden calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it is the will of God and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again and again and again. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves.

    America does not exist for American interests. If it did, it would not be involved in Ukraine. But America does work for Jewish interests, which is why America is highly involved in every war for Jews. Why did America want to wipe out 7 countries in 5 years? Because those 7 countries surround Israel, and Israel wants them wiped off the map.

    This Ukraine thing is going to break America’s hegemony in Europe, as the article correctly surmises and predicts that Europe will be forced to deal with reality and dump NATO for survival and embrace Russian carbon based fuels. And that means that stupid climate narrative also has to be dumped.

    Now there is cause for a humourous moment in all this hell, I want to see the look on Victoria Nuland’s face when she realizes that Ukraine is lost to the Jew forever. The dream of a Khazar mobster shangrila is about to get plowed under by the Russian army.

    If nukes fall in ukraine, both sides will say the other side did it and there will be no way to prove who is telling the truth.

    In fact there is an EASY way to determine which side is doing it.

    Just as we knew in the Syrian civil war that it wasn’t Bashar al-Assad that released poison gas on his own people. Instead it was the U.S backed Mossad/CIA logistically supplied ISIS head choppers that did it.

    We knew it in the case of the Syrian conflict because it was the side (ISIS) that was losing badly in the war, so in their desperation they tried the most depraved act in the hope of swaying public worldwide opinion and [perhaps] getting other nations to support them in an act of sympathy.
    (Over and above the compelling argument based on motive, ALL the forensic evidence pointed to ISIS having done it).

    Similarly, in the proxy war being waged by the Anglo Zionist empire against Russia, the Judeo-fascist Ukrainian state has suffered appalling losses and are on the verge of capitulation.
    The ONLY reason they have any marginal combat capability remaining at all is due to the thousands of mercenaries (eg: Poles and other NATO soldiers of fortune), that have been bought with freshly printed greenbacks that have been conjured out of thin air by the Zionist Usury Banking Cartel owners of the Federal Reserve.

    Bottom Line : The Russians have ALREADY won this war convincingly. All that remains is for the remnants to be mopped up.

    Any dastardly act committed from now on, be that a dirty bomb/nuke/ or whatever, will FOR CERTAIN be the handiwork of the Anglo Zionist empire.
    After all, they have a track record of doing such things. (eg: Hiroshima, Nagasaki, dropping Bubonic Plague infested fleas on Nth Korea, biological attacks on Cuba and China over the years, nukes used on WTC1 and WTC2 on 9/11 etc).

    Using any metric you one chooses to apply, the sheer DEPRAVITY of the Anglo Zionist empire has no parallel in recent centuries.

    I remember the USAF making it rain like hell for months on the Cambodian border after the monsoons were over . That was 50 years ago and we can only imagine what they can do now. China uses the technology to grow food,where they were never able to, in the past. It’s been crazy warm with a lot of rain here in Crimea. It’s been 12 to 15′ C during the day – for a long time now.

    But I have also thought that either the US is using weather weapons here, to keep the ground thawed or Russia is , in order to make it easier on their troop grouping and bringing in the recently re- trained men and equipment. Once things are right , Russia’s shield will go up and winter will begin. We will see. I see even Saudi Arabia flooding out – recently. lol

    This is a good sign in that if Putin had already sold Crimea to Judea, or transferred as payment for past USSR debts, then we would expect the Hebrews to already be moving in and inspecting their newest properties. Instead it appears that Putin has not already signed off on the transfer of Crimea to Khazaria 3.0.

    Or, stated another way, the Russians miscalculated the stupidity of Americans in getting out of Afghanistan and immediately getting involved in yetanother military adventure far from home to protect no discernible American interest…

    That’s how it looks:

    In 2022, the Biden administration and the U.S. Congress have directed nearly $50 billion in assistance to Ukraine, which includes humanitarian, financial, and military support, according to the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, a German research institute.

    Council of Foreign Relations

    https://www.cfr.org/article/how-much-aid-has-us-sent-ukraine-here-are-six-charts

    That’s a fresh $ 50.000.000.000 just for 2022 ( about $500 of extra debt for every US family – or maybe $1.000 just counting taxpaying families) – all heading down the same drain as the Afghanistan money.

    It’s a fact that the US public and their representatives have no say in any of this. These decisions are made by Jewish activists following their own agenda with the Kagan/Nuland deep state have more power than the whole of Congress combined (those performing seals with their standing ovations).

  303. Why is Zelensky and Chucky Schumer so happy to rob the United States blind for this unwinnable war against Mother Russia? Why do our AIPAC elected Ziowhores clap like penguins high on crack for the gay dipshit demon Zelensky and his money luandering scam? How insane is it to think that this $100 billion dumped into Ukraine is an investment? It is highway robbery, grand theft nation. Why oh why is this happening, how can it be happening? Because Jews have taken over your government.

    Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow and reap while we Jews sit like an royalty and eat…That is why gentiles were created…Their sole purpose is to serve Jews…Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the people of Israel…With gentiles, it is like with any other person – they need to die, but God gives them longevity. Why? Because the gentile is the Jew’s servant…Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. That’s why the gentile gets a long life, to work well for the Jew…

    There is no way to explain current geo-political events outside of ZOG conspiracy. It can not be done. You may think this is a good article by Mike Whitney. Sure, it is a good summary of the events thus far, and some projection all from a non-conspiracy viewpoint, but since this article does not describe the situation in terms of a Jewish conspiracy, the article is a fail. I give it an F- The simple fact is that this war is not understandable outside of Jewish interests. But Mike Whitney, does his damndest to explain to you how the United States is trying to topple Russia via Ukraine. Sorry, wrong! It is not in the United States interest to go to war with Russia and destroy itself in the process.

    The reader is being duped, this war is for Jewish supremacy, not United States hegemony. What it looks like, what is coming, is the hegemon’s region of influence, in Europe, is going to be rapidly shrinking as Europe scrambles to survive, by dumping Washington as their ring leader. And, over in the Pacific theater, it looks like Biden might also lose Taiwan, maybe even Guam. So Biden, having lost Afghanistan, and now certainly Ukraine or large parts of it, may even lose the western Pacific. Amerika will be pushed back to Hawaii, but the Hawaiians want their own nation. It seems the whole world is about to reorder itself.

    It is the Jews who are building a Jew World Order who are trying to destroy Russia which is bucking their plans. Putin, like Hitler, has a strong economy outside of the Jewish banking system. This can not be allowed, otherwise the Jew banking parasite will be exposed and swallowed up by a more vibrant economic system. The hegemon’s economic system is based on Goyim exploitation under Jewish central banking monopoly.

    Thus the Jews, who want it all, can not stand some other country like Iraq, Syria, or Russia has oil to trade. The Jews want to control all the oil, because they want to be gods of the earth. Thus they cut off Nordstream, and sanction Iran oil sales, and steal Syrian oil, and blow up Iraqi oil fields, because if the Jew can not control the oil flow they will make it so you don’t either.

    So what Nuland and Kagan are up to is to use the United States as it’s war whore to secure Ukraine for Jewry and the Khazar mobsters. So they overthrew the elected government, and installed their gay butt demon Zelensky, and built up the war machine in Ukraine, but Putin interfered and now all of their hard work investment is up in smoke. Victoria Nuland’s great state department career victory in Ukraine has now turned into the greatest of losses.

    Thus they want to kill Putin, and this was recently voiced by one of their Senatorial lackeys the very gay pipsqueak Lindsey Graham. Vlad has spoiled their plans, and since they are losing very badly, they want to assassinate him. But even if they did, or Putin dies for some reason, wouldn’t the response be even more hard line?

    It is actually quite laughable, Nuland’s scheming has resulted in the complete destruction of her beloved Ukraine Jewish homeland. And all the incredibly stupid blue/yellow flag wavers are only prolonging the war and thus increasing the destruction of the Ukraine, and the Libtards who voted for Biden, who still support Biden, who is making sure their is no negotiations or peace.

    So they love Biden and hate Putin. How stupid can they be? Are liberals imbeciles? Perhaps or liberals do not think, they only follow the lead of the Judas goat. And let us not forget, that the Christian evangelists also stupidly follow the Judas goat into perdition. Thus, Left or Right, dumb Amerikan sheep are marching into another Jewish contrived slaughterhouse and losing the empire along with their treasure and lives.

    Russia, in an existential crisis, it is knee deep in the mud and bogged down in this Ukraine quagmire, it now knows the conspiracy theory was correct, that the goal all along was to destroy them, so this means Russia must decisively act to survive this huge boondoggle. There is no dount that the west (Jews) want Russia destroyed. If Russia loses this war, then they will be cut up, sold off, and subjugated, turned into gays and trannies, their Orthodox church banned, and all their memories taken away just as is happening in Jew infested Amerika today.

    And why would Russia ever give Ukraine back? Or let Jews rule Ukraine ever again. Russia can not allow that to happen, they must dominate Ukraine and maybe all the territory north to the Baltics, creating a big buffer zone between the gay demons and their Christian homeland. Russian boys are dying, the Kremlin is getting anxious to ramp up the war and crush the Jew crybabies. Thus Putin has no choice but to act decisively, and thus it’s on baby.

    Russia will not, cannot lose this war. First, all resources for war favor Russia. NATO and Amurka countries are bankrupt and live on borrowed money and borrowed time. They cannot support even an extension of Ukraine proxy beyond 2023. They are also out of weapons, fuel. NATO and JUSA military is a joke. A very well hidden joke. A paper force that will collapse quickly. There is much evidence for this. Grounded F-35s and other airplanes, declining numbers and quality of soldiers, generals who are either pansies or political whores that haven’t spend one day on the battlefield. Women as Defense Ministers throughout NATO. On and on.

    One must remember that Russia is fighting to preserve THEIR HOMELAND. There will be no defeat, occupation. In the event that Russia is overrun and facing death and disappearance, all nuclear assets will be launched.

    But even before that, if Russia somehow is irreversibility losing, China will enter FULL FORCE on the side of Russia. That all bring the final end to Europe, NATO and Amurka. They will be rump states, the contemporary Japans-full unconditional surrender.

    There is not one credible, experienced military analyst-who is honest and has integrity-that does not predict Russian victory without close to absolute certainty.

    As far as NATO directly acting against Russia, this effectively means Amurka. Does any serious person believe that Amurka today can project the kind of power that a much stronger Russian today is, and prevail?? Supply lines, troop transport and support, ammunition, knowledge of terrain, motivation, and this: 3 American personnel equal 1 Russian or Chinese equivalent.

    in ten years time the big event in 2022 will be seen to be the visit of China’s Xi to Saudi Arabia

    The fact that it’s being assiduously ignored by the bulk of the legacy media… means that it’s already acknowledged as a geopolitical Big Event.

    Xi achieved more in that visit, than Biden did in his ‘fist-bump’ visit. Orders of magnitude more.

    The purpose of Biden’s ‘fist-bump’ visit was to beg the Saudis to increase oil production. A month later the Saudis signed on to Russia’s plan to reduce oil output from ‘OPEC+’ by 2 million barrels a day.

    Xi went to the Gulf conference with the proper – post-Deng-Chinese – mindset: “Let’s do dat bidness“. Same thing as the Chinese are doing in Africa – where they rightly see a half-billion potential customers in ten years’ time.

    Xi would not have taken that trip if the Chinese political leadership didn’t already know that the result was set in stone.

    The Saudis have seen the F35. They know they’re boned if they stay in the petrodollar bloc.

    Xi was there unveiling the tombstone for US hegemony. Saudi is applying to join BRICS+ – which is starting to get more letters than the latest acronym for GloboHomo (the one that starts LGBT and includes CBS, NBC, DOD, FBI, CIA and NSA in the mix).

    There can be no victorious Ukraine. This country is servile both in politics and in culture, the ultimate minion, golem, shoggoth. But there is nothing to celebrate here. Russia is losing the war, on the cusp of civil war as long as things remain the same. That will lead to the utter collapse of the Aryan race in the East of Europe, with a breakdown of communications, contamination of soil and famine.

    But it will be a sensible addition to the death of the Aryan race in the West. The Russian culture has shown its utter ineptitude compared to the Anglo. The Russians have failed to create their own culture, their own academia. Their own Soviet Union surrendered without a shot fired. Now, the residual Russian and Ukrainian quasi-states are consumed by madness, waging war for nothing else but their own destruction.

    I wish Putin would tell the world the truth about 911.

    I don’t think he’s particularly interested in some tiny event from a generation ago.

    The ‘base’ premise is pretty laughable: 19 Saudis with box cutters defeat the most expensive air-defense system in human history. If true, it’s a perfect example of the “blowback” that can happen if you stick your nation’s dick in other peoples’ business for a couple of generations.

    Under all alternative hypotheses, it’s still the result of shitful US foreign policy… just with different perpetrators.

    Besides: the Russians are far too busy letting the Global South know what its investigations of US biolabs in Ukraine have found. Zhakharova, Medvedev and Lavrov have each given long talks about the findings to date – with links to the documents recovered, and additional commentary.

    Don’t think that because it hasn’t appeared in the Western media, that it’s not being seen by every foreign leader. The reason that the Global South is aligning itself with the Evil Rooooskies at such an alarming rate, is because they’re being presented with overwhelming evidence that the US has pursued an offensive biowarfare capability since the 1950s.

    Think of the ramifications for the global opinion regarding the US, if very mass livestock slaughter that’s happened in the last half-century – of pigs, poultry, and (potentially) beef and sheep – is plausibly laid at the feet of the US’ political leadership.

    My own view is similar to that of our beloved site host: that the swine- and avian-flu that cut vast swathes through China’s main livestock protein sources, were the result of deliberate US bioweapons deployment.

    People who know more about this stuff than I do, also reckon that the culls of cattle and sheep (due to BSE and scrapie, respectively) in Europe and the UK in the 1990s, were the result of an accidental release of a US bioweapon.

    That’s a much bigger deal than some C3 (command/control/communications) infrastructure being blowed up in New York. Let’s be clear: if it was a building in some city full of brown people that got blowed up by the US… the media of the Empire of Lies would bray that it was a strike on C3 infrastructure.

Iran and Hezbollah have the missile and drone power to make Israel uninhabitable for the chosen tribe. The tribe needs a new HQ; a place to regroup. I believe they figure the traditional Pale is that place. Mercouris, for one, can’t wrap his mind around how Zelinsky continues to shovel Ukie gentiles into the Russian meat grinder.

    There are already Polish regulars in-theatre in Ukraine. Not ‘former’; not ‘contractors’ (although there’s plenty of them too).

    It’s the worst-kept secret in the history of military affairs. NATO-adjacent forces have shitful commsec, and intercepted traffic is absolutely full of people calling everyone “Kurwa!”.

    Pooland thinks it can into Western Ukraine – and it’s right: by the time the Russians have finished dismantling the post-2004 fortifications in the Donbas, the last defense of Kiev will be like Berlin in 1944/45.

    I don’t know how to say “Hitlerjugend” in Pig-Russian (the pretend ‘Ukrainian’ language), but once the Ukrops evacuate from Bakhmut, the fortifications thin out dramatically. There is no defensible line between Bakhmut and Kramatorsk. That significantly alters the calculus: “no blue squiggles” (on the aerial map) means no defense from standoff weapons.

    The move from Bakhmut to Kramatorsk will be blitzkrieg-style, because there’s nowhere to hide for the poor human speed-bumps. That means that the mercenaries who are in-theatre will rapidly re-deploy to their home countries – or at least the smart ones will.

    I’ve posted the map that shows every fortification and entrenchment in Ukraine: every ‘castle’ icon is a fortification. 10cm/px at full zoom. Zoom in on a few of them.

    The Ukrops haven’t had the manpower to build additional defensive depth. There are five or 6 recent, hastily-constructed entrenchments between Nova Poshta and the Kramatorsk arport, but they are nothing like the stuff on the current line of contact – which is why Russia is comfortable shelling the fuck out of the LoC and waiting for troop rotations (and “Kalibr-ating” the staging areas: everyone knows where those are, too).

Also note the news today that the CIA sent covert advisors to help the Ukrainians fight the Russians in Donbass that year. These forces killed some 14,000 Russian civilians with random tank and artillery fire since 2014, and was a primary reason for the Russian invasion. Israel controls American foreign policy, so it seems the plan for the past eight years was to force Russia to invade Ukraine so that it could be destroyed economically and give up support for Syria. Then Syria can be destroyed along with Lebanon as I explained in a video last year.

    Senator Grahams false Zionist narrative about who is the enemy is 100% in line with the MSM, but I am not sure who sets the narrative, and if anyone knows please tell. Who tells our Senators to mimic the Zionist agenda to the tee? Does any Congressman or Senator have a viewpoint that is not aligned with Bibi Netanyahu?

    Text by Yukon Jack, graphic artist Smoloko:

    You guys want Putin to be your next Hitler so badly that you make up a false world in your minds.

    Imperator Caesar Vladimirus Putin? Hilarious.

    I don’t want anyone to be the next Hitler, but the masses will if they get wiped out like what happened to the Wiemar Germans in the hyperinflation period.

    The reason Smoloko and I (back in 2015) came up with “Imperator Caesar Vladimirus Putin” as humorous way to stick it to the Jew trolls because Putin went into Syria and started blowing away the Jewish proxy army ISIS. Putin may even be a Jew for all I know, but he seems to be a strong nationalist, interested in the preservation of Russia and his allies like Syria. And he is not going along with the Jew World Order, he is making his own.

    If you remember history, back in 66 A.D. the Jews revolted against the Roman Empire and the Flavians were sent in to crush Judea. Titus and Vespasian Flavian, launched a war against the Jews, going town to town Roman style and leveling the resistance until in 70 A.D. Titus sacked Jerusalem. Likewise, Putin is the “new Caesar” who is destroying the Jewish resistance (the ISIS/ISIL proxy army) in Syria, which is part of the Levant. Vespasian returned to Rome and became Caesar, starting the Flavian dynasty.

    Thus if you see the parallel from then to now, it is appropriate to call Putin the new Caesar. And in Putin’s home town they made a bust of him (which is where I got the idea to call him Caesar) BTW it was all in good fun, and I do not take is very seriously since the age of caesars is long gone.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3085105/Hail-Putin-Cossacks-unveil-extraordinary-bust-Russian-leader-Roman-Caesar-mark-Soviet-victory-World-War-Two.html

    The funny thing about the Jews, they get so upset when you don’t agree with their insanity. In my not so humble opinion, it was inevitable that somewhere sanity would make a comeback, the whole world was never going to fall to the Jewish parasite, and it is no surprise that resistance to Jewish control is sprouting everywhere on the planet.

    It seems like a huge strategic mistake for Poland to send “regulars” troops into Ukraine, which is more of a civil war. Poland should stay out of the conflict, but Jews must control Poland, which is why the Jews in Poland are allied with the Jews in Ukraine, who are allied with the Jews in Amerika.

    So Poland is screwed. They screwed themselves big time.

  350. Do you all remember way back in 2015 when Obongo was President, and the war in Syria was raging? Something very big happened, Putin went the United Nations and condemned the west:

    Monday 28th September 2015 Putin said:

    I cannot help asking those who have caused the situation, do you realize now what you’ve done?

    Naive Mr. Putin, thinks it was all some big mistake. It was intentional, the destruction was intentional. Regardless, the next day, Russia launched it’s air war against the Jewish proxy army in Syria, ISIS. And do you remember the meme of who ISIS really is?



    ISIS IS ISRAEL

    ISIL = ISrael In the Levant

    And who was directing the insane ISIS head chopping, the blood soaked violence, and destruction of archeological artifacts? Israelis, because Israeli generals were caught in the act. And do you remember Bibi visiting ISIS fighters who were airlifted to Israeli hospitals? And do you remember these Muslim extremists, ISIS, never once talked about or attacked Israel?

    And do you remember that a Russian military air strike killed 30 US and Mossad officers?

    Russia: Mossad, other foreign agents killed in Aleppo strike
    Citing ‘battlefield sources,’ state media says its warships bombed 30 officers from Israel, Qatar and Western countries

    Russian state media reported that Israeli Mossad agents and other foreign military officers were killed in Aleppo on Tuesday in a Russian missile strike.

    According to the Arabic-language version of Russia’s Sputnik news agency, some “30 Israeli and Western officers” died when they were hit by three Kalibr cruise missiles fired by Russian warships in a “foreign officers’ coordination operations room” in western Aleppo, near Mount Simeon.

    In addition to the Mossad agents, the Russian report claimed, military officials from the United States, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom and Turkey — virtually every country hated by Iran, Syria and Russia — were killed in the strike, according to “battlefield sources.”

    The foreign officers were “directing the terrorists’ attacks in Aleppo and Idlib,” the Iranian Fars news reported, referring to the rebel groups that control the Syrian cities.

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/russia-mossad-other-foreign-agents-killed-in-aleppo-strike/

  361. Colonel MacGregor deserves respect for being willing to go against conventional wisdom, but, based upon past performance, seems to overestimate the Russian army’s ability/willingness to fight.

    Much is made about the infamous Maidan “coup”, but, afaik, Putin and company recognized the Ukrainian governments that followed, brought about by ELECTIONS held in a manner no more corrupt than the ones that brought in Russian favorites. For Putin, recognizing the post-coup governments is made easier by the fact that he took the opportunity of the “coup” to do a major land grab in Ukraine.

    The Russian regime yammering about “Anglo-Saxons”, “neo-nazis” & “genocide” shows that they are either out-of-touch with reality or lying. Probably the latter. Putin always thought Ukraine belonged to Russia. Ukraine was not in danger of joining NATO, but NATO didn’t want to go along with Putin’s dictat that NATO should proclaim Ukraine FOREVER BANNED from joining. Putin wants NATO to be the guarantor of something in perpetuity. Apparently all so that NATO missiles have to take a few minutes to fly over Ukraine instead of being launched from it (in case of a NATO vs Russia apocalypse).

    https://www.cnbc.com/2022/12/28/zelenskyy-blackrock-ceo-fink-agree-to-coordinate-ukraine-investment.html

    But I’m sure that you already knew that. There’s 1 out of those 8 “absurd, frighteningly unreal” propositions that you mocked. Let’s continue 😉

    …………….

    As for refugees not returning to the ukraine, let’s analyze different groups of people who used to live in “the ukraine” as citizens of that cobbled-together “country”:

    — several million who resettled in the pre-SMO Russian Federation territory

    — several million who fled to Poland or elsewhere in the EU

    — an unknown number, possibly a million, who are sheltering in Turkey while deciding their next move (this past summer we met a ukrainian mother and her young daughter who were living with a restaurant owner in Ankara, and a ukrainian couple also with only one child (sadly typical) who had rented an apartment near Antalya).

    The ukrainian citizens who took Russian citizenship and relocated to “Russia proper” might return to their homes, but only if their homes are in the four new oblasty (provinces) of the RF (or in additional territory that Russia may capture and add to the RF, like Odessa and the rest of the ukraine’s Black Sea coast).

    The millions who fled to Poland or other EU country surely will NOT move back to any territory that’s now part of the RF (15-20% of that former country’s territory and likely to grow in 2023).

    They might be willing to return to the remaining rump ukraine that’s neither incorporated into the RF or reclaimed by Poland — but where would they work? The most valuable industrialized part of the former ukraine is or soon will be part of the RF, and the same holds for much of the most fertile agricultural land in the east, southeast and south.

    If Russia is smart enough to take and hold the entire Black Sea Coast, the rump ukraine will be landlocked, shorn of commercial seaports for import/export and naval bases. That will tend to make the rump ukraine even more poor and difficult to eke out a living in.

    That’s just two of the supposedly “absurd, surreal” propositions that you mocked, without providing argument or evidence.

  373. schrub says:

    I recently read an article about how, during Stalin’s regime, some of the top Jews in Russia’s Communist Party started to vigorously campaign to make Crimea into a new Jewish homeland. The person who led this campaign was Stalin’s henchman Molotov’s Jewish wife Polina Zhemchuzhina.

    As a result of significant pressure, Stalin finally relented in 1934 to their demand for a Jewish homeland but only agreed to set it up as The Jewish Autonomous Oblast with its capital to be the town called Birobidzhan. It still exists today.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birobidzhan

    This decision apparently didn’t satisfy these Jews who considered the proposed new homeland to be both too remote and far too backward for their cosmopolitan tastes so few people ever moved there.

    These Jews apparently never gave up their dream of Crimea and they continued to unsuccessfully lobby Stalin make their Crimea dream a reality. Stalin probably wondered why he should be expected to give control of the prosperous Crimea (which also had some of Russia’s best weather) and its vitally important warm water port in Sevastopol to these perpetual ingrates. .

    This Jewish desire to control Crimea (and the rich farming areas to the north of it in the
    Ukraine) has never really gone away. It has always been quietly lurking in the background.

    Today, ultra-orthodox Jewish Chabadiks openly express their dreams of controlling both Crimea and Ukraine. Their leaders, like the late American-based Chabad head Rabbi Menachem Schneerson and the late Israel-based Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, have both made speeches to their followers about their dreams about a new Jewish controlled homeland in the Ukraine where the Jews will “get sit around all day studying Torah” while the presence of the goyim there is only tolerated because they do all the dirty work.

    Don’t underestimate this long-held continuing desire to control Ukraine.

    Bibi Netanyahu’s current, very slim ruling coalition in Israel is totally dependent on its continued support from its ultra-orthodox members to stay in power. He knows that he had to satisfy their demands to support the now defacto Jewish-controlled Ukraine.

    Bibi also knows that if Russia were to end up either winning this war outright or or managing to get a negotiated settlement that allows them to keep eastern Ukraine or Crimea, the long-held dreams of the ultra-orthodox to control Ukraine will be dashed. This will make Bibi’s ultra-orthodox supporters VERY unhappy which might mean that his coalition falls apart, apart whereupon Bibi’s numerous enemies might again regain power. Their first order of business will then be to again try to put Bibi in jail for corruption.

    This means that there is absolutely no chance that either Bibi or his American political puppets like Lindsay Graham will ever support a negotiated settlement that will leave either the Crimea and the eastern Ukraine in Russian hands.

    You can bet on this.

    Further notes; If Stalin had actually relented to demands to make the Crimea a Jewish homeland way back in the 1930s, the dissolution of the USSR in 1989 might well have resulted in an interesting situation. Would the now Jewish-controlled Crimea potentially have demanded to be incorporated into Israel or made a satellite state of it. This boggles the mind because it would have meant that Israel’s well-armed navy would then have then had control of much or all of the Black Sea from its naval base in Sevastopolwit courtesy of continuing support from its obliging slave the USA.

    Turkey in particular should be especially relieved that this scenario never came about.

    John Helmer suggests that Russia, after removing all military threats from the Donbass and the newly liberated / annexed Russian territories will set up a buffer zone much akin to the demilitarized zone in the Koreas.

    The Russian military grouping in Belarus is to protect a weaker Belarus, to pin troops in the north of Ukraine near kyiv and to potentially act as a future invading force.

    Why would Russia send 200-300K troops into Kyiv? What would it accomplish except to incite the wrath of the USA and NATO and potentially alienate those global south countries that support Russia explicitly or implicitly? The Zelensky Junta will merely take up leadership positions in Poland or Germany and Russia would be managing a wrecked city of 3-5 million and dealing with endless saboteurs and guerilla style warfare. Ask the USA how trying to occupying a country (Iraq and Afghanistan) when the populace does not want your military there.

    My opinions only based on geopolitical analysis read outside and inside media propaganda zone:

    – Russia is going to continue bleeding the west with high intensity artillery and missile warfare against Ukraine as it has been doing.

    – Russia is now setting up and strengthening very fortified defensive positions in the Donbass (supports demilitarized zone hypothesis).

    – Future invasions will probably not eminate from Belarus into Kyiv, but from the south to retake Kherson and potentially Odessa.

    – Odessa will fall to the Russians not by invasion and street to street fighting – Mariupol style, but after the fall of the Kyiv regime, where the Russians will merely walk into the city.

    – Odessa was the leverage card Russia was dangling to Ukraine for peace: negotiate now and keep Odessa. If Russia does start a late winter / spring offensive, Odessa will be off the table and Ukraine will lose Odessa.

    Now that a new price benchmark has been set by US gas sold to Europe, Russia could still twist the knife, profit from it and appear reasonable, all at the same time…..three birds with one stone…..rather than sell it at 5X the price the US charges, just sell it at 4X the price.

    The dollar had its value when it was pegged to gold as agreed to with the rest of the world according to Bretton Woods at the close of WW2

    Then the US reneged, removed the peg so it could simply print more dollars. The dollar fell in value till Kissinger (that Jewish savior of USA) convinced the Saudis to sell their oil only for dollars….aka Petrodollar.

    The Saudis have been propping up the dollar for the last 50 years as agreed with Kissinger. But lately the US have been pissing off the Saudis, so they have decided to join Russia and China’s camp. ….. No more Saudi oil priced in dollars.

    There are now 190,000 Russian soldiers trapped in Taurida (Crimea+Kherson). ATACAMS would hasten their defeat but they have very poor supply lines and are low on food and ammo. Ukraine will take them in the summer. The conflict will then freeze for 5 to 10 years as capturing the Donbas will not be so easy for Ukraine.

    Because Saudis and Chinese and Iranians and Venezuelans and Russians and on and on have self respect and don’t want to be slaves. The difference between a house and field negro as they say in the US. The difference is now one former slave (China) has more cash than the master – so all the other slaves are looking to make an escape. Only a few former house slaves like Japan still want to remain in the house. Most don’t. Hence why over 140 nations refuse to join in with the sanctions against Russia. When it comes to a country like Cuba they can only vote in the UN for the US to end its embargo. But materially Cuba isn’t worth it for them to go against the master. But Russia and China are big enough and strong enough. Hence what we see happening- such as Xi being treated like a king by the Saudis and Biden getting only a fist bump. The master always never understands why slaves want to leave the house. It’s embedded in self respecting human beings no matter how tough it is off the plantation.

In such an eventuality I can see Russia backing Turkey rather than Orthodox Greece, as it would have done in the past. Anyway, Greece has turned against Russia, especially since siding with the Ukraine. Not the people, but those that count: the government and the politicians.

    I’m actually not sure if the Germans in Barbarossa had it worse.

    They don’t seem to be giving the Russian conscripts even basic tents. They are making little rat holes at the front and the Ukrainians bomb them with drones. I’m not convinced there is any type of strategy on the side of Russia. It really looks like they just send in conscripts and without armor or air support. They make rat holes and either attack or wait for Ukrainians. There are intercepted calls where they are told to attack in a group of 5. Complete madness. Even Stalin’s human wave attacks had air/artillery/armor coordination. The infamous Volga crossing seen in movies was well thought out even if the losses were high.

    The Germans would have been fine if Hitler wasn’t so obsessed with Stalingrad. They had Kiev wrapped up by September 1941. It was a staggering loss for the Red Army. So the Germans had plenty of toasty warm Ukrainian homes that winter but Hitler kept pushing East.

    Russia is still fighting for a small city that is completely in ruins. Putin’s Jewish chef doesn’t sound confident that it can be taken. Putin is making the same mistake of Hitler which is obsessing over a city in ruins and losing any strategic sense or purpose.

    “Putin is making the same mistake of Hitler which is obsessing over a city in ruins and losing any strategic sense or purpose. ”

    I think Hitler lost on purpose, as his real mission was to transport Jews to Ukraine so that they could later be moved to Palestine to create new Israel. In this biblical end-of-the-world plan the persecutor of Jews must be destroyed at the end, so Germany was to lose. Hitler made it by: dividing the army to three directions, which did not make sense, starting the war too later though it was known that the army will be stuck in mud, ordering Paulus to keep positions instead of breaking through when it was possible, not starting the battle of Kursk in the time when it should have been made and stopping the battle of Kursk though Germans were at that time winning. The Nazi party, after all, had Masonic roots from Sebottendorf.

    But Putin is running out of ideas. I cannot really say that there were a better chance for Russia than to try to break Ukraine defenses in Donbas. That does not work out, but what else. ISW (which often makes too many wrong suggestions, better to follow Jerome in militaryland.com, he is not making any speculations) wrote that in their opinion Putin should have waited to the Spring offensive. The problem with that idea is that only the current offensive in Donbas keeps Ukraine from counterattacking in Zaporizhzhia district or in Luhansk. Once Russians stop the pressure in Donbas, Ukraine can move troops for a counterattack, so Russia must keep on pushing and they are getting too high losses in armored vehicles. They cannot replace armored vehicles any more, so this eats the Spring offensive, and at that time Ukraine has 100 IVSs, that is, modern light tanks. Sadly for pro-Putinists, but Russia will lose.

    Hitler did not lose on purpose. He underestimated the Soviets just as Putin underestimated the Ukrainians. It’s all in table talk where he was secretly recorded.

    Most military analysts at the time believed that the Soviet Union would collapse with months. It was a surprise to everyone that the Red Army was able to push the Nazis back. Even the Allies didn’t know about Stalin’s hidden tank factories in the Urals. Churchill expected Hitler to win in 1941 and the Brits planned on fighting to the death.

    I think Hitler lost on purpose, as his real mission was to transport Jews to Ukraine so that they could later be moved to Palestine to create new Israel.

    There was never a plan to transport Jews to Ukraine. Eastern Europe was to become part of the German empire. Ukraine’s Jewish population massively dropped during WW2. After the Soviets left a time bomb in Kiev the Nazis rounded up Jewish men and shot them. Some Jews fled to the Soviet side, others went “on vacation” according to some here.

    Russia has more Jews than Ukraine because the Germans didn’t get past Stalingrad. Odessa was basically Jewish until Barbarossa.

    Early in the war there was talk of moving the Jews to Madagascar but that plan was abandoned.

    But Putin is running out of ideas. I cannot really say that there were a better chance for Russia than to try to break Ukraine defenses in Donbas.

    Ukraine could get overstretched by going into Donbas. They don’t have the reserves of Russia and Donbas has more ethnic Russians that will work for the enemy.

    I think they need to be patient and play the long game. Just look at how Russia is throwing human waves at Bakhmut. If the enemy insists upon wasting men then let him.

    I’m amazed that his chefs in training haven’t put a bullet in him.

    The problem with mercenaries is that they will often go rogue or switch sides if they take too many losses.

    All they have to do is put a bullet in Putin’s chef and then give Ukraine a call. They could negotiate a better salary doing lower risk work.

    But Russians are fatalistic and rarely rebel against their leaders.

    Most of the anti-Communist activity was in countries like Poland and Hungary. Russians rarely did anything once the White army was defeated. They shrugged and let the Communists rule them. It’s incredible as to how many people could have killed Stalin but didn’t have the guts. He was in fact shocked that no one killed him over misreading Hitler and Barbarossa.

    Most students of the Russian Soul trace it back to the reforms of Iwan IV Grozny – secret police and vodka monopoly (in Poland the boyars – szlakhta – were running the asylum and if anything it was worse). The Jews only remember Catherine the Great who took all that away from them. Iossif Wissarionovich wisely used the vilest assassin (((faction))) as bodyguards but had a marked dislike for the Hechaluz (Zionists). Alternatively we can argue the multitude who tried to off the Great One, the Maximo Lìder and Saint Vladimir the Little were just not the brightest candles – not everybody can be a Herschel Grynszpan.

    “The Prince who relies on mercenaries will never be safe; for they are braggarts among friends and cowards among the enemy.” (Niccolò M., Il Principe) Does this not more aptly describe the US?

    – Zaluzhnyi will go back behind the Oskol if he knows what´s good for him; Elendski´s hysteria, though not unwarranted – every city lost now is lost forever – is Putin´s greatest asset. It may take another two weeks to open the M-03 to Slavyansk, but that means Seversk and Krasnij Liman become untenable also. The Jews will try to make a stand in Kharkow, Dniepropetrowsk and Odessa – all Russian cities infested with Russians anyway so let them burn – and then make aaliyah. The Poles might take Galicia and Volhynia – they are already calling up administrators – if they are stupid enough. Meanwhile the Jews claim Vladimir Vladimirovich plans on calling up another 500,000 – he´d be derelict in his duty if he didn´t.

They could have planned to simulate a war, Ukraine asks BILLIONS of dollars from USA, thousands of weapons, to “attack” Russia” but the purpose is to eliminate white Ukranian people, and to weaken USA Army and also its Economy. Besides, Ukraine may share the weapons given by USA, with Russia. USA will be weak after this and ready to be invaded by Russia or China, maybe even with the help of Mexico and other Latin nations that are sending invaders to USA. One part of Mexicans love Russia and hate USA, and current government is communist. If USA can not stop thousands of unarmed civilians entering daily through South border, how could it stop Russian, or Chinese or maybe Mexican Army?

    This is proof that Ukraine died in 1990. It’s been in terminal demographic freefall since then. 10,000,000 vanish during independence… 6,000,000 more fled after 2022’s invasion. Moscow and St Petersburg grew by around 10,000,000 souls as Kiev flatlined in the same period. Who’d migrate there to the prospectus of life in Kiev, now from the West?

    At this point, the only commitment any sane Ukie would have is to flee to Berlin, Paris or London.

  478. There is a chance for negotiated peace in Ukraine that’s being overlooked.
    The people of Ukraine need to overthrow their illicit NATO-imposed government and put reasonable people in their place. People who will instantly throw out the NATO terrorists and start negotiations that don’t have or need WARshington D.C.’s or the EU’s approval.
    The big problem is that Selensky’s media control makes it hard for people there to see what’s really happening and that it was Biden, not Putin, who got them into this mess. People who don’t have the facts aren’t very likely to rise up against their true oppressors.

    It isn’t overlooked. It’s completely implausible.

    Polls show that the Ukrainian people support Zelensky and do not want to give up land to end the war.

    Zelensky was not the DC or EU backed candidate. They wanted Poroshenko and were in fact shocked that an actor had beaten him.
    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48007487

    A minor detail not mentioned on pro-Putin blogs that dishonestly depict Zelensky as the result of a coup. Zelensky was elected well after the corrupt pro-Russian president had been removed. He in fact ran on position of neutrality with Russia and was not pushing to join NATO. Zelensky did not believe the invasion would happen and rejected US/EU calls to assume defensive positions.

    It’s “die grosse Schlacht”. And it will come. Putin has understood that there is no reasoning with the crazed lunatics in Washington. They want no peace nor negotation, so a big physical reaction has become inevitable. The deep mud, that has bogged down heavy Ukranian and NATO equipment, starts to freeze solid, which will soon allow the movement of heavy Russian equipment. This must secure strategic positions before freshly added NATO equipment does. Push will come to shove. Poor Ukraine will see a lot more damage and neighbouring countries like Romania and Poland may receive some damage as well.

    The Ukies fall apart when they hit the point of losing 100% of the infantry they started with. 200,000 by my reckoning. Then they shoot their own officers and battle police to avoid certain death.

    It is below freezing in Bakhmut and they are lying in shallow trenches without someone on watch. One of the Russians is lying on his back and is barely below the ground.

    Is that modern military tactics? Lie down on your back in freezing weather in a trench that barely covers you? Germans had trenches and tactics that were far more advanced in 1917.
