“The Ukrainians are in bad shape… It won’t be long before the Ukrainians run out of food. It won’t be long before they freeze… They have done all that we can reasonably expect them to do. It’s time to negotiate…. before the offensive begins, because once it begins, there will be no further discussion between Moscow and Kiev until it is over to the satisfaction of the Russians.” Colonel Douglas MacGregor, “War in Ukraine; Quiet Before the Storm”, 15 minute-mark

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

The relentless attacks on Ukraine’s electrical grid, fuel-storage units, railway hubs, and Command-and-Control centers mark the beginning of a second and more lethal phase of the war. The increased tempo of the high-precision, long-range missile attacks suggests that Moscow is laying the groundwork for a major winter offensive that will be launched as soon as Russia’s 300,000 reservists join their formations in east Ukraine. Kiev’s refusal to negotiate a settlement that addresses Russia’s core security concerns, has left Russian president Vladimir Putin with no other option but to defeat Ukrainian forces on the battlefield and impose a settlement through force-of-arms. The impending winter offensive is designed to deliver the knock-out punch Russia needs to achieve its strategic objectives and bring the war to swift end. This is from Reuters:

Russian missile strikes have crippled almost half of Ukraine’s energy system, the government said on Friday, and authorities in the capital Kyiv warned that the city could face a “complete shutdown” of the power grid as winter sets in.

With temperatures falling and Kyiv seeing its first snow, officials were working to restore power nationwide after some of the heaviest bombardment of Ukrainian civilian infrastructure in nine months of war.

The United Nations says Ukraine’s electricity and water shortages threaten a humanitarian disaster this winter.

“Unfortunately Russia continues to carry out missile strikes on Ukraine’s civilian and critical infrastructure. Almost half of our energy system is disabled,” Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said….

“We are preparing for different scenarios, including a complete shutdown,” Mykola Povoroznyk, deputy head of the Kyiv city administration, said in televised comments.” (“Ukraine says half its energy system crippled by Russian attacks, Kyiv could ‘shutdown'”, Reuters)

Until recently, Russia had avoided targets that would dramatically impact civilian activities, but now military leaders have returned to a more conventional approach. Presently, the military is destroying whatever facilities, transformers, storage units, substations, rail yards and energy depots that allow Ukraine to continue to wage war. Clearly –as the bigger and more powerful state — it was always within Russia’s ability to take a sledgehammer to Ukraine and break it into a million pieces, but Putin chose to hold back hoping that Kiev would come to its senses and see the hopelessness of its cause. And –despite the deluge of western propaganda to the contrary– the outcome of this war has never been in doubt. Russia is going to impose a settlement on Kiev and that settlement will require the government to cut all ties with NATO and to sign a treaty declaring its neutrality into perpetuity. Russia is not going to allow a hostile military alliance to place its missile sites and combat troops on its western flank. That won’t happen.

Unfortunately, Russia’s military operation is going to greatly increase the suffering of the Ukrainian people who find themselves locked in a cage-match between the Washington and Moscow. This is from the World Socialist Web Site:

Poverty in Ukraine has increased more than tenfold since the outbreak of the US/NATO-Russia war, according to the latest data from the World Bank (WB). Officially, 25 percent of the country’s population is now poor, up from supposedly just 2 percent before February 2022… With officials predicting that the poverty rate could rise to as much as 60 percent or more next year, levels of deprivation are emerging in Ukraine that have not been witnessed on the European continent since the end of World War II.

Unemployment is now running at 35 percent, and salaries have fallen by as much as 50 percent over the spring and summer for some categories of workers. … according to the International Monetary Fund, Ukraine’s public debt has now soared to 85 percent of GDP…. A recently released joint study by the World Health Organization and Ukraine’s Ministry of Health found that 22 percent of people in Ukraine cannot access essential medicines. For the country’s 6.9 million internally displaced, that number rises to 33 percent.

The medications that are hardest to get—those that treat blood pressure, heart problems and pain, as well as sedatives and antibiotics—reveal a population struggling to cope with decades of poverty-induced ill health and the physical and psychological trauma of war.

While US and NATO officials are able to dispatch massive amounts of firepower to Ukraine’s front lines within a matter of weeks, the delivery of life-saving humanitarian goods is seemingly an impossible logistical challenge.” (“Poverty skyrockets in Ukraine”, World Socialist Web Site)

Washington’s proxy-war on Moscow has inflicted incalculable suffering on the people of Ukraine who now face plunging temperatures, dwindling food supplies, a crashing economy and a growing shortage of essential medications. And despite the chest-thumping bravado over the recapturing of Kherson, the Ukrainian people will now be forced to flee their battered homeland by the millions seeking refuge in Europe which has already slipped into a post-industrial slump brought on by Uncle Sam’s reckless provocations. How many of these working-class Ukrainians would have preferred that their leaders reach an accommodation with Putin (regarding his legitimate security concerns) rather than engaging the Russian army in a pointless war which has cost them their homes, their jobs, their cities, and (for many) their lives? And do the people outside the country who claim to “Stand With Ukraine” realize that they are actually supporting the impoverishment and immiseration of millions of civilians that are caught in a geopolitical crossfire between Washington and Russia? Anyone who genuinely cares about Ukraine should support Ukrainian neutrality and an end to NATO expansion. That is the only way this war is going to end. Russian security will be achieved by-way of a treaty or an iron-fist. The choice is Ukraine’s. This is from an article titled ‘Russia Is Right: The U.S. Is Waging a Proxy War in Ukraine‘:

“The war in Ukraine isn’t just a conflict between Moscow and Kyiv, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov recently declared. It is a “proxy war” in which the world’s most powerful military alliance … is using Ukraine as a battering ram against the Russian state … Lavrov is … not wrong. Russia is the target of one of the most ruthlessly effectively proxy wars in modern history.”

The US foreign policy establishment does not care about Ukraine or the Ukrainian people. The country is merely a launching pad for Washington’s war on Russia. That is why the CIA toppled the democratically-elected government in Kiev in 2014 and that is why the CIA armed and trained Ukrainian paramilitaries to fight the Russian military in 2015 (7 years before the invasion!) Here’s some background from a 2015 article at Yahoo News:

“The CIA is overseeing a secret intensive training program in the U.S. for elite Ukrainian special operations forces and other intelligence personnel, according to five former intelligence and national security officials familiar with the initiative. The program, which started in 2015, is based at an undisclosed facility in the Southern U.S., according to some of those officials….

“The United States is training an insurgency,” said a former CIA official, adding that the program has taught the Ukrainians how “to kill Russians.”

…the CIA and other U.S. agencies could support a Ukrainian insurgency, should Russia launch a large-scale incursion.

…“We’ve been training these guys now for eight years. They’re really good fighters. …representatives from both countries also believe that Russia won’t be able to hold on to new territory indefinitely because of stiff resistance from Ukrainian insurgents, according to former officials.

If the Russians launch a new invasion, “there’s going to be people who make their life miserable,” said the former senior intelligence official…

“All that stuff that happened to us in Afghanistan,” said the former senior intelligence official, “they can expect to see that in spades with these guys.” (“CIA-trained Ukrainian paramilitaries may take central role if Russia invades”, Yahoo News)

There it is in black and white. The plan to use Ukraine as a staging-ground for conducting a proxy-war on Russia preceded the invasion by at least 7 years. The Obama administration and their neocon allies set a trap for Russia in order to drag them into an Afghanistan-like quagmire that would deplete their resources and kill as many Russian servicemen as possible. As Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin recently admitted, the US wants to “weaken” Russia so it is unable to project power beyond its borders. Washington seeks unhindered access to Central Asia so it can encircle China with military bases and nuclear missiles. The US intends to control China’s growth while dominating the world’s most populous and prosperous region of the next century, Asia. But first, Washington must crush Russia, collapse its economy, isolate it from the global community, demonize it in its media, and topple its leaders. Ukraine is seen as the first phase in a much broader strategy aimed at regime change (in Moscow) followed by the forced fragmentation of the Russian state. The ultimate objective is the preservation of Washington’s preeminent role in the global order.

Putin’s winter offensive threatens to derail Washington’s plan to drag the conflict out for as long as possible. In the weeks and months ahead, Russia is going to intensify its assault on Ukraine’s critical infrastructure. Most of the country will be plunged into darkness, fuel supplies will dry up, food and water will become scarcer, communications will be cut off, and all rail-traffic will cease. Millions of civilians will flee to Europe while the entire country slowly grinds to a standstill. At the same time that Russian battalions overtake cities and towns east of the Dnieper, the Russian army will block vital supply-lines from Poland cutting off the flow of lethal weaponry and combat troops headed to the front. This, in turn, will lead to widespread capitulation among Ukrainian fighting units operating in the field which will force Zelensky to the negotiating table. Eventually, Russia will prevail and its legitimate security demands will be met. Here’s how Colonel Douglas MacGregor summed it up in a recent interview:

“What’s coming in the future is a very massive offensive... the kind of offensive that I and many other military analysts expected at the beginning; Very decisive operations, multiple operational axes designed to effectively annihilate the enemy on the ground. And that’s what’s coming now, that’s what lies in the future.” (Colonel Douglas MacGregor, “War in Ukraine; Quiet Before the Storm”, you tube)

When the ground freezes, Russia’s offensive will begin.

    This war will last for generations . There will be new playgrounds for testing newer weapons . .Pakistan ,sub Saharan Africa ,Libya , Mynamar are likely candidates who might volunteer even given the level of the corruption and lack of any national loyalty .

    Ukraine’s sky is getting lot up with numerous dark and luminous objects that defy explanation and meet silence from the military .

    1–“This Ukraine crisis that we’re in right now, this is just the warmup,” U.S. STRATCOM head Charles Richard told a naval conference earlier this month. “The big one is coming. And it isn’t going to be very long before we’re going to get tested in ways that we haven’t been tested [in] a long time.”
    …… imperial war machine’s claws for a looming hot war with China and/or Russia. The U.S. would certainly have an advantage in military test runs over the years in such a conflict.

    As an aside, it’s probably worth noting that all the testing of new Western weapons technology would likely explain reports from Ukrainian astronomers that the skies over Kiev have been “swarming with unidentified flying objects (UFOs).” https://consortiumnews.com/2022/11/18/caitlin-johnstone-ukraine-as-weapons-testing-site/

    2 –Cosmic’ and ‘phantom’ UFOs are all over Ukraine’s skies, government report claims
    By Brandon Specktor published September 15, 2022
    Astronomers observed dozens of objects that “cannot be scientifically identified.”The researchers divided their UAP observations into two categories: “cosmics” and “phantoms.

    phantoms range from 10 to 40 feet (3 to 12 meters) wide and can travel at speeds of up to 33,000 mph (53,000 km/h). For comparison, an intercontinental ballistic missile can reach speeds of up to 15,000 mph (24,000 km/h), according to The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation.

    The researchers did not speculate as to what these UFOs may be. Rather, their paper focuses on the methods and calculations used to detect the objects. However, according to a 2021 report from the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), it’s likely that at least some UAP are “technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity.”

    3 – Classified UFO videos would ‘harm national security’ if released, Navy says
    By Brandon Specktor published September 10, 2022
    The Navy admitted it has a lot more footage of UFOs — but won’t share them anytime soon.
    The U.S. Navy holds unseen videos of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) — or unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), as the Department of Defense (DOD) prefers to call them — but will not release the footage publicly—-https://www.livescience.com/navy-ufo-videos-national-security-threat

    For U.S. strategists to equate its Afghanistan debacle with Russia’s response to Ukraine’s militarization is laughable and demonstrates the stupidity that has backfired so badly on the West economically and politically.

    The Ukrainians trained in the U.S. are dying in droves, as will those now being whipped up in Britain and elsewhere. Their courage will fare them no better than it did the valiant troopers in The Charge of the Light Brigade. They may yet turn their ferocity upon their corrupt leaders pushing them into the meatgrinder, as we should do with ours dragging us down the rathole.

MacGregor is wrong, as usual, and he has no attachment to the reality of what is actually happening in Ukraine. He, like CIA Larry Johnson have been nothing but wrong and have simply spewed Putin’s agitprop.

    Things have not, and will not, go well for Putin in Ukraine. he and his fellow corruptocrats have hollowed out Russia through their corruption and you are seeing the results in Ukraine.

    The British, French and Turks demonstrably won the Crimean War. The Light Brigade was a brain fart. The Russians were kicked out of the Black Sea the Royal Navy entered the Azov sea and burned it all down. Russia was humbled and quite seriously lost prestige.

    Thank you for your aricle. It corresponds to what i’ve understood in the latest with Col. MacGregor and Judge Napolitano (below).

    It’s unbelievable how insensitive and apathetic the Western peoples are, too coward to publicly denounce the evident, grotesque lies and exaggerations told by US-Nato (i.e., its so-called superiority and ‘victory’ (so far) in Ukraine). Millions will suffer and die in Ukraine, then Europe, and then here, at home, when the war is over. Because of America’s generalized cowardice and indifference.

  7. Notsofast says:

    the farther we go in to this “special” military operation, the more i understand and appreciate the subtlety and genius of putin and the russian high command.

    realize that the natzo forces were preparing to invade the donbas, with a spring offensive in march but the russians preempted their attack. in late february they launched a counteroffensive and quickly destroyed the ukrainian air force, establishing immediate air superiority (although the ghost of kiev, put up a valiant struggle, downing 153 su 57’s before finally succumbing to the fact, he was nothing but a videogame). even though joe biden was screaming, the russians are about to invade, for two weeks, they still managed to totally surprise the ukrainians (the ukies, must have had a lot to drink that night).

    the inscrutable russkies, then went full rope a dope and brilliantly relied on the mockingbird media, to paint the russians as weak and putin as the “babyfaced czar” to fully sell the zioneocons on sending in everything they have, to finally finish off this impudent bastard that refuses to take a knee. the only problem being that the russians have destroyed everything sent into ukraine, as well as the original ukanatzo army and all the natzo mercenaries after them, at a 10-1 causality ratio.

    the u.s. is now raiding their vassals armories, after running out of their own supplies. never get high on your own supply, good advice on any level (looking at you zelensky, cough, ftx, cough, snif, snif). winter is coming and mama merkel has her arms wide open, for a flood of swastika tattooed ukanasties. frohe weihnachten!

    Mr Unz should provide a Loony button for contributions like this one.
    The War will not last for generations, it will be over quickly. The sanctions imposed on Russia by the West are causing Russia few problems. Rather, they are killing Globalism and bankrupting Western economies.

    America has a national debt of over $30 trillion and an accumulated trade deficit at over $20 trillion at 2022 prices. Once the USD’s status as world reserve currency goes, as it will shortly, hyperinflation and economic collapse beckon. Thereafter, there will be political and social collapse. Any capacity to project power in Ukraine or anywhere else will evaporate.

    The EU and other West European states are facing surging energy prices and coming blackouts. Germany and other states have deindustrialisation as the main prospect. Even if they reach some agreement with Russia, financial hardship for most of the population will continue for many years, as will stagnant or declining economies. If they don’t reach an accommodation with Russia, they will experience the same consequences as America.

  9. @Quartermaster

    Things have not, and did not, go well for Bush, Obama, Trump, Biden etc etc in Afghanistan. They and their fellow Zionist sockpuppets have hollowed out America through their corruption and you are seeing the results in America, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen……..

    There. Fixed it for you.

  10. @Quartermaster

    Only in a land of make believe is it a bad thing to help a country fight for its own freedom and independence.

    Only in a land of make believe is a genocidal Nazi regime which was violently and illegally installed by a collapsing empire (in what Stratfor described as “the most blatant coup in history”) and engaged for eight years in the extermination of millions of its own citizens, characterized as “a country fight(ing) for its own freedom and independence”.

    Only in a land of make believe is it a “good thing” to divert massive national resources from the American population which is in dire economic distress to support the genocidal military and utterly corrupt politicians of said psycopathic Nazi regime.

    A good case could be made that characters like this Quartermaster clown are guilty of treasonous malicious propaganda against the interests of his own nation and people. Ergo, in a perfect world, this clown would be strung up to a lamp post – and rightly so.

    It is very sad indeed. Poor Ukrainians are used as cannon fodder for U.S.-led Anglo-Zionist imperialism.

  14. Let’s look at basic strategy. All the fighting occurred in the east.

    Thousands of Russian troops and hundreds or armored vehicles have been seen moving by rail into Belarus. Ukraine hasn’t the units to defend the entire border with Belarus. 100,000 Russian troops will push down from Belarus facing light resistance and advance 200 miles south over open country to cut all road and rail lines to Poland. Ukrainian units moving to stop them are blasted by Russian air power.

    No more supplies from Poland, game over in two months as Kiev hoists a white flag, and Z is hung from lamp post.

  15. At the same time that Russian battalions overtake cities and towns east of the Dnieper, the Russian army will block vital supply-lines from Poland cutting off the flow of lethal weaponry and combat troops headed to the front. This, in turn, will lead to widespread capitulation among Ukrainian fighting units operating in the field which will force Zelensky to the negotiating table.

    Alexander Mercouris speculates the Russians will take down most if not all the Dnieper bridges as part of the project to cut off the supply lines to the East. Such an event would cause both psychological and real blows to troops on the eastern side of the river.

    A possible “carrot” to the Ukrainians might be a lot of assistance to a peaceful Ukraine in getting the electrical system back up and running. I’m not sure what Ukraine could offer to pay for shipments of the monster transformers, but maybe something could be worked out Maybe a small humanitarian resumption of natural gas supplies for home heating would also be on the table.

    As for the timing of negotiations, the Russians might wait until they have taken Odessa. Allowing Ukraine to retain access to the Black Sea would probably be a big mistake. Alternative possibility: the example of Hong Kong could used for the Russians to take a 100 year lease on the city.

    @Verymuchalive

    Those are all good points. As such, think this through, ……all the geopolitical parties already know the cards all the other geopolitical parties are holding, and yet the faux-west globalists behind the American power, persists anyways, …. they are signalling that in their desperation, this proxy war with Russia in Ukraine absolutely must work (I mean, from their perspective, in the very least, it must work to avoid the future collapse of Nato, ….. and the only way that is going to happen now, is if the central European powers think they are ultimately going to dine on the spoils of a broken-up Russia). This means we haven’t seen nothing yet. Really …. Russia holds all the strategic advantages in the region the war is taking place. There is a very good chance we will see a faux-western globalist attempt, at this, sometime this winter/spring:

    1) a false-flag tactical nuclear strike within Ukraine (needed to convince the Russian people that they backed a monster)

    2) a concurrent decapitation of the Putin regime by multiple assassination.

    If it comes to this, they won’t succeed (with the decapitation, that is). There is bench strength within the Putin regime, as far as I can tell. We might see some subsequent nuclear activity in New York City, Washington, London and Brussels though. We should all pray our western leadership is not this nuts. But they are. They are psychopathic. Anything can happen now.

  17. This will be a trying and telling winter. European industrialists, particularly in Germany are about to pull their hair out as industry after industry goes down while, consequentially, unemployment skyrockets.

    Street demonstrations have developed in the majority of European capitals and other major cities. Unlike the deliberately dumbed-down and cognitively dissonant Americans, Europeans have been through similar situations in the first half of the last century. Virtually the loss of an entire generation of young manhood threatened a population collapse and did lead to a stasis.

    Will European militaries hold the line for despised governments in the face of infuriated populations? This is a question that the puppet rulers in many countries must be asking themselves as the days draw down and the hard winter looms. Even American occupation forces in Germany and several other nations, may have a short lease approaching. Likely, their commanders on those comfy bases are beginning to wonder if regime changes will lead to their eviction.

    In the industrialized world only the U$$A and Canuckistani citizens (subjects) remain comfortably numb…that is in well-to-do suburban enclaves and a host of college and regional governance administrative towns. Major core cities are already exploding with unquenchable crime, most particularly where there are large black populations.

    With over five MILLION illegal immigrants swarming over the fruited plain, just during the not quite two full years of the $enile One’s administration; even American Hispanic populations are beginning to go off the Democrat reservation.

    When well known cultural icons within the Black community begin pointing fingers at the Talmudists, the elders and other cool heads, together with the more culturally vibrant elements amongst their youths; are starting to ask questions while listening to powerful humorists like Chapelle.

    The deeply corrupted infrastructure, governmental, financial, corporate, academic and even religious are losing credibility. For those who pray for miracles, the greatest one would be that common people of all races and prior allegiances will continue to awaken in growing numbers and turn their anger away from each other and in the direction of the chief perpetraitors and their various minions, followers and acolytes.

    Will the advancing winter bring about an emerging majority? That may be the only possible salvation for our ruptured republic.

    WTFrack are you smoking?

    Murica have been waging Wars for Generations.

    Murica will continue waging Wars, Proxy-Wars, 5thColumn-ColorRevolutions, and Provocations.

    Murica and NATO-EU have been careful claiming that they don’t want a Direct Confrontation with Russia. Russia may not have the Land Forces Complement the Soviet Union had; but Russia have plenty of Cruise, Supersonic, Hypersonic, Theater Ballistic, and Orbital/Sub-Orbital/ASAT Missiles and Drones to SMITE the Civil Infrastructure and Military Formations of the USA and NATO-EU Members.

    The Proxy-War and Economic Sanctions against RUS are Failing; and the Economic Consequences upon European Actors may carry on for over a Generation. However:

    IRN are still being provoked – now that we know IRN are too big, armed, and organized for an Invasion or prolonged Air Campaign;

    Color Revolutions and Provocations are being conducted in CHN, THA, TRK, VEN, LBN, SYR, and PRK.

    The MICC, NeoCons, ISR+Diaspora, WEF-Davos, and CIA are out of control and desperate to expand+solidify their realms of influence as the Hegemon Failed to Conquer the World and ara now being pushed back by State Actors.

    Given that RUS, CHN, and now IRN and PRK are beyond the reach of the Hegemon’s Grip – their attention for actual Proxy-Wars will eventually focus elsewhere…

  20. Brosi says:

    I enjoy and appreciate Mike Whitney’s commentary, but there is one aspect of his reports that bothers and concerns me (aside from not naming Jews).

    Mr. Whitney is constantly depicting this Khazarian civil war as being driven by the US and it being a US operation.

    Actually, the preponderance of evidence is that it was the UK that blew up the Nordstream pipelines, it was the UK that brainstormed and coordinated all the legs of sabatoge of the Kerch straight bridge, and it was the UK that provided the drone-boats used to strike at Kherson.

    Now I am not trying to say that this is a war between the UK and Russia, but clearly if this was just the US MIC creating more demand for its weaponry, and if this was just the US trying to maintain hegemony over western Europe, there is no strong reason for the UK to stick its neck out in this fashion. In fact, England now has the highest electricity prices in Europe and one of the highest inflation rates. An integrated Russian/Western European energy grid would not only have directly benefitted England with lower energy prices, but also through a much stronger European economy. The destruction of European industry and her middle classes in no way benefits the English people.

    But it goes much further than that. All of Western Europe is actively participating in the re-equipping of Ukrainian armed forces and the training of the UAF in Nato strategy, tactics and the usage of Nato weaponry. Spain, Italy, Germany, Slovakia, Czechia and even North Macedonia and Montenegro are involved. Even perennial enemies of Turkey and Greece are involved in training and equipping the UAF.

    Tellingly, all the leaders of these nations never miss a beat in making periodic treks to Kiev where they kow tow and swear fealty to Zelensky and Ukraine. In the UK, a matter of a few months three prime ministers in a row (Johnson, Truss and Sunak) all have exactly the same foreign policy.

    But it gets worse, much worse. All of Asia and even the commonwealth are making the same gestures and commitments. Even in operation Desert Storm when the US was going after Saddam Hussein for WMD and fighting a war against Al Queda and “terrorism” the world never lined up in such a united fashion.

    So clearly it is not the US alone that is driving this crusade against Russia.

    If we look at the recent COP27 and G20 gala’s, we can get a hint about what is really going on. All the same world “leaders” are there, all blithely committing the people they ostensibly represent to anti-human globalist agendas. Global warming and the war on pandemics are the main courses here, just like they have been for decades. Our “leaders” shamelessly proclaim that the planet needs WHO vaccine passes, CBDC and zero carbon, and it is the little people who will have to give up our freedoms in order to “save the planet”, just like we have to fight Russia to death in order to “save democracy”.

    The US is just another bogeyman here, like Russia, used to deflect attention from the Cabal that is behind this globalist agenda. Before we can really resist and defeat this Cabal, we must identify it. Ranting about the US does not help us accomplish this.

    Those of us who study history can see the same fingerprints that started and drove WWI and WWII are all over this current conflict. The are long term historical connections and malfeasance driving these wars that cause so much misery, death and destruction, and they go way back into the past. The true history of these events has been warped and distorted, and critical milestones and events are still not acknowledged, such as the Lusitania or Katyn forest or or MH17. The real people who create these events never are exposed and have remained hidden for centuries, and there is definitely a continuity behind it.

    It is as if there is a hidden hand behind all these events.

    Ukrainian Public Opinion on the War
    19 November 2022 9:00 AM

    Because casualty figures are so uncertain, it’s unclear whether the war in Ukraine qualifies as the deadliest conflict in Europe since World War II. After all, approximately 130,000 people died in the Yugoslav wars.

    What is clear is that it’s the most intense conflict. Tens of thousands of people have died in just the eight months since Russia’s invasion began. If the conflict continues, it will soon surpass the Yugoslav wars in total casualties; and it may already have done so.

    On top of all the deaths, Ukraine has seen a massive exodus of refugees, along with catastrophic damage to homes, industry and physical infrastructure. The cost of rebuilding the country has been estimated at several hundred billion dollars – similar to Ukraine’s entire GDP before the war (which may fall by more than a third this year).

    Faced with such hardship, do ordinary Ukrainians want to continue fighting? Or do they want to sue for peace? Overwhelmingly, it seems, they want to continue fighting.

    For Western Weapons, the Ukraine War Is a Beta Test
    Though the battle for Ukraine remains largely a grinding artillery war, new advances in technology and training there are being closely monitored for the ways they are starting to shape combat.
    By Lara Jakes
    Nov. 15, 2022

    Three months ago, as Ukrainian troops were struggling to advance against Russian forces in the south, the military’s headquarters in Kyiv quietly deployed a valuable new weapon to the battlefield.

    It was not a rocket launcher, cannon or another kind of heavy arms from Western allies. Instead, it was a real-time information system known as Delta — an online network that military troops, civilian officials and even vetted bystanders could use to track and share desperately needed details about Russian forces.

    The software, developed in coordination with NATO, had barely been tested in battle.

    But as they moved across the Kherson region in a major counteroffensive, Ukraine’s forces employed Delta, as well as powerful weaponry supplied by the West, to push the Russians out of towns and villages they had occupied for months.

    Perhaps a more interesting and relevant question would be WHY Britain, France, and Turkey attacked Russia in the Crimean War.

    Britain and France are literally thousands of miles away from the Black Sea. Nothing that goes on there is any of their business.

    Turkey was at odds with Russia mainly because the Russian government was trying to protect Christians who lived under Turkish rule from persecution. The British and French didn’t care then – as they don’t care now – about Christians living in the Near East or, for that matter, anywhere else.

    Had Russia been in a position to send fleets and armies to attack and capture Portsmouth, Le Havre, and Brest – killing hundreds of thousands of British and French people in the process – how would the Western history books assess that?

    Good Post – We never know exactly what will happen in the next 6 mos but if things go as planned and Russia is successful in ousting Zelensky and his CIA/Mossad Azov /Right Sector buddies, I suspect that Novorossiya will follow the same plan as they used in Crimea. Demitry Medvedev, who was in charge of the start of rebuilding Crimea, as well as other projects, will probably be instrumental once again.

    The roads will all have to be rebuilt – war or no war they were never maintained because the Kiev Gov. always lived up to it’s name in corruption/theft. … The repairing of government buildings, schools, homes, hospitals, infrastructure etc. will start, once things simmer down and the locals will turn there sights on the future, go back to work and even head back to Crimea in the summer and go swimming. This will take a number of years but I see the same scenario working in the old Tavrida area of Novorossiya, as it has worked in Crimea. This ” reunion” will be good for everyone, and hopefully get rid of the Ukraine vs Russia mentality that the West has programmed into Ukraine. All this is easily achievable once a positive plan is in place, the Russian military has put an end to the terrorism, and the right deals have been made domestically and internationally.

    The USA (and, to a lesser extent, Canada) are useful as practical case studies in what happened when Europeans gained access to a whole virgin continent untouched by human hands – save those of the Native Americans who lived there for over 10,000 years without harming or degrading the environment.

    The difficulties of emigration across the Atlantic served as a powerful filter to select out only those who were energetic, brave, determined, and – unfortunately – ruthless. Thus the European colonists (I prefer not to call them “Americans” or “Canadians” as those terms should be reserved for the indigenous peoples) had the temperament and the motivation to sweep clean across the continent, displacing anyone and anything that threatened to resist them.

    Having thus obtained control of the immense natural resources of North America, the colonists proceeded to exploit those resources in the most hasty, thoughtless, and shortsighted ways. They butchered millions of buffalo, and turned huge areas of perfect grazing land into poor farmland, prone to dry up and blow away in a fairly short time. They tore open mountains, cut down huge forests, poisoned rivers and lakes – everything in pursuit of IMMEDIATE self-enrichment. They even burdened the land with a huge network of concrete roads, buildings, and parking lots which will become useless when fossil fuels run out.

    Then they went hunting abroad to use their ill-gotten gains to enslave and plunder other peoples.

    When the Europeans discovered the New World, it could have been a huge gift of resources: our original habitat given back to us on a huge scale; a treasure house of natural wealth that could have lasted for millennia.

    Instead, because we are not organised to pursue the welfare of the species, individuals and small groups were permitted to snatch and keep whatever they wanted, bribing or killing anyone who resisted them.

    This is a broad hint that we badly need to reorganise our societies and governments along more rational and humane lines.

    The Ministry of Economy of Ukraine and BlackRock, the world’s largest investment company, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding agreeing on a framework for consultative assistance in developing a special platform to attract private capital for the recovery and support of Ukraine’s economy.

    The platform will focus on mobilizing investment in key sectors of Ukrainian economy, while taking into account the reconstruction needs resulting from the full-scale russian invasion.

    In particular, the agreement signed on November 10, 2022 in Washington, DC, provides that BlackRock’s Financial Markets Advisory will consult the Ministry of Economy on creation of a roadmap for the implementation of an investment platform, which will primarily attract private capital. This includes the structure of the platform, its mandate and governance.

    Thus, the Memorandum formalizes the preliminary discussion of opportunities for attracting public and private investment in Ukraine, which took place in September between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Chairman and CEO of BlackRock Larry Fink.

    The European Union heartless and greedy. Let’s borrow/Poland/ big money to help Ukraine in the US and Canada

    We should say to the Americans: lend us money to help Ukraine. It is the cost of war for our brothers that has made us need the money. Let Poland’s lending money to help Ukraine, to defeat Russia, be a moral challenge for the White House, Congress, but also for the media, organizations and the Americans themselves. We will allocate every cent from this loan to help Ukraine.

    The point is that Canada should also lend us money in one form or another to help Ukraine. Make it a moral challenge for her.

    Money for such a noble cause is much more than just a commercial loan. Such an approach to the matter allows to mobilize public opinion, politicians and the media. 1.5 million Ukrainians live in Canada. This is 4% of the country’s population and a diaspora with great political power. Let’s add to this the 1.5 million Canadian Polonia. There are over 900,000 Ukrainians in the USA and between 6 and 10 million people of Polish descent. The Ukrainian government will help us to mobilize our compatriots in Canada and the USA. We should turn to the Polish community, American and Canadian public opinion. This is a task for our diplomats, the Polish National Foundation, the media, etc. We must ensure that neither the United States nor Canada should refuse us a loan. So that they have to almost compete with each other in this noble work.

    Nothing’s ideal in this world, but some things are very much more desireable. At the end of the Cold War, NATO should have been dissolved and all US military bases abroad closed. America should have returned to domestic matters – like securing its southern borders from mestizo immigration – and many other parts of the World, like eastern Europe, would be much more peaceful as a result.

    At the same time, America and many other countries should have left GATT singly or collectively. There should have been a return to international trade conducted by tariff, quota or trade agreement as appropriate. Globalism, and with it the hollowing out of American industry, would have been prevented.

    The principal culprits behind American policies are the Ziocons who have been in charge for 30 years now. Once its protector goes, a “shitty little country in the Middle East ” will have 2 choices – humiliating agreements with its neighbours or slow motion annihilation. These will be the consequences of the Zionists’ own policies, but the irony will be lost on these parasites.

    The plan to use Ukraine as a staging-ground for conducting a proxy-war on Russia preceded the invasion by at least 7 years. The Obama administration and their neocon allies set a trap for Russia in order to drag them into an Afghanistan-like quagmire that would deplete their resources and kill as many Russian servicemen as possible. As Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin recently admitted, the US wants to “weaken” Russia so it is unable to project power beyond its borders. Washington seeks unhindered access to Central Asia so it can encircle China with military bases and nuclear missiles. The US intends to control China’s growth while dominating the world’s most populous and prosperous region of the next century, Asia. But first, Washington must crush Russia, collapse its economy, isolate it from the global community, demonize it in its media, and topple its leaders. Ukraine is seen as the first phase in a much broader strategy aimed at regime change (in Moscow) followed by the forced fragmentation of the Russian state. The ultimate objective is the preservation of Washington’s preeminent role in the global order.

    No mention of the organized ((jews)) who imposed this plan, are profiting from it, and are also bankrupting and destroying America in similar fashion only on a much slower basis?

    Some Russophiles will claim that the “Russians” did this too in 1941 and 1942, but the difference is that the same Jews that are supporting Ukraine today had their backs back then. Lend Lease was sending phenomenal amounts of food, vodka and armaments to support the Judeo-Communists, the same way Lend Lease is send phenomenal amounts of food, vodka, armaments and FTT crypto tokens to Ukraine today.

    I don’t think Lukschenko wants to get directly involved in this war. I was quite surprised that he allowed Russia to march into Kiev already in January.

    Belarus has a long border with Poland, and a long border with Lithuania. If Belarus marches into Ukraine, or allows a major Russian operation/invasion from within her territory, then the likelihood of “protests” in Minsk and Smolensk are very large, and all the western borders would have to be protected from infiltration by terrorists and Zato SOF, if not from invasion by jets, tanks and HIMARS.

    I think those Russian reinforcements in Belarus are there to help protect from infiltration and as a determent for Poland from marching into Lvov when/if the ((government)) in Ukraine crumbles.

    I would bet that in one year the dividing line in Ukraine is more or less where it is now, and the slow grinding away of Slavic youth will be ongoing. Russia will be under even more sanctions, there will have been even more false flags, and protests in Western Europe will have ended up like the freedom convoy/truckers protest in Canada.

Unless dumbasses like you get NATO involved it is not possible for them to win. Except maybe you can come to their aid with a division of unicorn cavalry.. Or you can go fight there? Are you a jew? You can go defend your corrupt state where you launder money.
    It isn’t a matter of freedom fighters!! It is reality speaking here. And this corrupt nation here in the USA keeps this horror going. Yeah they are gonna kill Russians, hoorah, but they are ruining another country…Iraq… Libya, Afghanistan, Syria. And those motherfuckers are going to lose again. Except I guess the military contractors that suck up hundreds of billions of dollars… they always win.

    I’m not so sure about the great uprising (insurgency) in LGBTQ-lands of the righteous Christian populist hordes. All of these people have been easily deflected for three years by fear of a flu and/or the cash handouts that they will be repaying for twenty years through inflated currencies.

    I’m in a backwoods rural part of the USA and all the “guys” I talked to have been in hiding. They come out occasionally for mutual reaffirmations of their love of big government. The USA is a pack of shitbag losers. We invented and specialized in the art of murdering civilians to win wars and now our propagandists are aghast at Russia turning out the lights in a war. I see the future of Norteamerica as terminal suffocation in blubber brought on by fast food binges in place of rebellions.

    A funny thing happened to the American Neoconservative plan to destroy Russia and to plunder her natural resources. It proved to be a political and military bridge too far for the NATO alliance’s paper tiger. Just like the the Nazi’s before them, American Neoconservatives believed their own anti Russian racist propaganda about a weak Russia and openly boasted about their intentions to destroy and dominate Russia. This has caused Russia to mobilize to permanently end the US/NATO military presence and influence in Ukraine,

    NATO’s ill advised eastward expansion to Ukraine is ending and a full retreat will soon begin. Ukraine as it once was will soon cease to exist and a defeated NATO Alliance will be forced by Russia to agree to a new security architecture for Europe that fully respects Russia’s security concerns. Like the Nazis before them, American Neoconservatives like Nuland, Blinken, Sullivan et al and their racist hegemonic anti Russian foreign policies will be relegated by the Russia Army to the dust bin of history.

The US still has vast woodlands and open space that could be developed and has actually been one of the more environmentally friendly people when initiating these projects. Slavery was a small business conducted by a tiny number of Europeans, and opposed by the vast majority. It was used as a cudgel, by this small wealthy group, against the working class of Whites, underselling farm products and driving down wages.

  83. @InnerCynic

    You’re assuming this clown is even American.

    Good point.

    One possible response is that Julian Assange is definitely not an American citizen – and yet…

    A further consideration might be that – in time of war – anyone giving aid, comfort or promoting propaganda which supports your enemy is fair game. A question then arising is – who is the enemy of the American people? TBH, that’s the real question underlying everything that’s going on in the world right now. FWIW, there was a large number of Americans who challenged American foreign policy and disputed Vietnam’s “enemy” status way back then – and Vietnam also won, similar to Afghanistan’s recent triumph – but the American people of the time also had mainstream media organs which reported the truth, unlike our present circumstances.

    As to who is the American people’s real enemy – one might ask who has poisoned the American military and the general population with an experimental bioweapon, and then opened the southern borders to allow the unmitigated invasion of the USA?

    Another principle is that anyone who openly supports and promotes crimes against humanity is open to prosecution by whatever international courts might be in a functioning state – and the clown in question (like so many others) is skirting perilously close to that by his unconditional support for a genocidal psycho Nazi regime masquerading as a “democracy fighting for its freedom” and verifiably guilty of numerous brutal war crimes and crimes against humanity for the entire period from 2014 up to the present time. IMO the entire machinery of Western mainstream media is also exqusitely vulnerable to such charges.

    BTW, also FWIW, all of those considerations IMO apply equally to a certain little Nazi state which has been carrying out a premeditated controlled Holocaust against the Palestinian people for decades now.

    They are more likely to cluster for resupply. They have to resupply more often and it leaves a trail.

    Also, infrared heat signatures show up better and they are likely to start lighting camp fires to keep warm. The wounded will have lower survival rates. The winter may create more casualties that the war itself.

    History Points to the US as Perpetrator of Crisis in Ukraine
    MIKE WHITNEY • FEBRUARY 20, 2022 • 2,200 WORDS • 283 COMMENTS

    By now, people should have a good idea of what’s going on. And– if they don’t– then, perhaps, we can refresh their memories by asking a few simple questions that will shed light on the motives and historical behavior of the main actors, the United States and Russia. That ought to do the trick. That ought to help us to see which country is instigating the provocations, and which country is not. Which country is fueling the crisis and which country is trying to put out the flames.

    [MORE]

    So, what do we know about these two countries from past experience? How do they conduct their respective foreign policies? Do they follow the clearly-written “international” rules prohibiting foreign interference, military intervention and aggression or do they act unilaterally whenever it serves their interests regardless of the destruction, mayhem and death it may cause?

    Answering these questions will lift us above the flustering din of the establishment media. It will help us to see that we are not comparing one peaceful, law-abiding nation to another peaceful, law-abiding nation. We are comparing one country that scrupulously follows the rules whether it is convenient or not, to another that invariably shows utter contempt for the basic principles of international law. While Russia has never launched a war of aggression, the US has initiated a series of conflicts that have plunged vast swathes of the Middle East and Central Asia into anarchy and ruin. Thus, the purpose of this questionnaire is to allow readers to mull-over the facts as we all know them, and determine for themselves where the source of the current crisis originates.

    Question 1– Which of these two countries has launched– or helped to launch– military interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Serbia and Syria?

    Russia
    The United States
    Question 2– Which of these two countries built detention facilities at Bagram Air Force Base (Afghanistan), Abu Ghraib (Iraq), and Guantanamo Bay (Cuba), where prisoners were routinely subjected to vile and abusive treatment in violation of the Geneva Conventions?

    Russia
    The United States
    Question 3– Which of the two countries fabricated a pretext for invading Iraq killing tens of thousands of Iraqis in the process?

    Russia
    The United States
    Question 4– Which of these two countries has toppled or attempted to topple over 50 regimes since the end of World War 2?

    Russia
    The United States
    Question 5– Which of these two countries has 800 military bases in countries around the world?

    Russia
    The United States
    Question 6– Which of these two countries is more inclined to use military force to achieve its geopolitical objectives?

    Russia
    The United States
    Question 7– Which of the two countries has repeatedly used false flags as a pretext for launching military interventions? (Note: “Remember the Maine”, Pearl Harbor, Gulf of Tonkin, Saddam’s WMD, Assad’s chemical weapons attacks, Gaddafi’s Viagra-crazed rape squads, etc)

    Russia
    The United States
    Question 8– Which of the two countries is building nuclear missile sites on the other county’s border putting their main urban centers just 10 minutes away from nuclear annihilation?

    Russia
    The United States
    Question 9– Which of these two counties (according to recent surveys) pose “the greatest threat to world peace” and represent “the greatest threat to democracy”?

    Russia
    The United States
    (Note: According to the survey results: “The US was the overwhelming choice for the country that represents the greatest threat to peace in the world today.” Also, “Threat to Democracy?” Guardian)

    Question 10– Which is these two countries imposes onerous economic sanctions (which are a violation of WTO rules and regulations) on any country that poses a threat to its global primacy?

    Russia
    The United States
    Question 11– Which of these two countries “has never attacked anyone throughout its history”?

    Russia
    The United States
    Question 12– Which country has provided military advisors and cutting-edge weaponry to the Ukrainian Army so they can invade east Ukraine and kill ethnic Russians?

    Russia
    The United States
    Question 13– Which country’s media fails to report that the Ukrainian army is presently shelling ethnic Russians in the eastern part of the country?

    The Russian media
    The western media
    Question 14– Which country’s media continues to repeat unverified claims of a “Russian invasion” while ignoring the buildup of Ukrainian combat troops (on the “Line of Contact”) that are planning a massive ethnic cleansing operation in east Ukraine?

    The Russian media
    The western media
    Question 15– Which country’s media sustained a 4 year-long disinformation campaign alleging that the other country had hacked their presidential election and changed the outcome?

    The Russian media
    The western media
    Question 16– Which country’s media has proved to be a more reliable source of information and does not function as the propaganda organ of the state disseminating unverified claims gathered from the corrupted Intelligence agencies who unquestioningly parrot the screwball narratives concocted by their globalist paymasters?

    The Russian media
    The western media
    Question 17– (Extra Credit) Which country’s president is more likely to lead his nation into a catastrophic war that will be remembered as “the greatest strategic disaster in his nation’s history”?

    Vladimir Putin
    Joe Biden
    The point of this article is not to bash the United States, but to provide historical evidence showing the stark difference between Washington’s approach to foreign policy and Russia’s. The questions are intended to help the reader review the historical facts– as we all know them– and decide for himself if the perpetrator of the current crisis is more likely to be the United States or Russia. The evidence– we think– clearly suggests that the blame lies with Washington, which is conducting another regionally-destabilizing operation aimed at strengthening its grip on global power.

For the Russians, it wasn’t just “pouring fuel on the fire” of an already overheated situation, it was “dynamite with a fuse.” Did Zelensky provoke Putin’s aggression? Maybe.
    Such “fatal” errors are quite frequent. For example, in July 1905, Kaiser Wilhelm II and his Russian “cousin” Tsar Nicholas II conclude another Russian-German mutual aid pact, but the heads of government in Berlin and St. Petersburg refuse to sign it. This allows England to supplement the military cooperation agreement with France in the west of Germany with an alliance with Russia in the east of Germany, which puts the German Reich in a pincer on both sides. If the 1887 pact had been extended, World War I could have been avoided.

    Because the US itself did so well in places like Vietnam and Afghanistan it can now train others. Rather than American Rambo-hype they should hire some Taliban to show them how it’s done. Western media keep screaming about the Ukraine but everyone glosses over the fact that the people of Donbass were Ukrainians also, full citizens of that country who came under attack for not wanting to accept the dictatorship that was hostile towards them. There was no unitary Ukraine, the differences being brought to a head by the violence of the Western supported coup leaders. The Zelensky dictatorship has used its security goons to round up and draft anyone in sight for its futile proxy war on behalf of the US, getting loads of people killed.

    Kiev will never be allowed to hoist a white flag: US & UK won’t allow them.
    Z will never be hung from a lamp post: before the fit hits the shan, he will be flown out to Israel.
    (his family is already there, safe in a multi-million dollar villa).

    From Israel he will be flown to London, where he will head a “Ukrainian” * government in exile.
    He will be giving speeches in EU parliaments, US Congress, and all that.
    For years. That’s the SOP for his Anglo-American overlords.

    Unless of course the Azov battalion types get a whiff that he is about to flee and assassinate him.
    He is surely well protected by US&UK special teams, but one never knows…….

  119. Russia is going to impose a settlement on Kiev and that settlement will require the government to cut all ties with NATO and to sign a treaty declaring its neutrality into perpetuity.

    So now you are back to claiming the war is about NATO? Putin changed the reason for the war to Donbas in September:

    He also took two oblasts that aren’t part of Donbas.

    MacGregor has lost his mind trying to defend this mass murdering dictator.

    Last month he told us that there would be a winter offensive in November. Remember that?

    What happened to all the indigenous Christian peoples of Asia Minor — Armenians, Assyrians, Pontic Greeks — when nomad Muslim Turks invaded from their homelands in Uyguristan and exterminated them?

    Muslim Turks and Tatars had established a base in Crimea, from where they kept raiding Slavic/Russian lands, abducted Slavs, and sold them into slavery. Millions of Christians were thus fed to the savages. Until Catherin the Great sent the Russian military to clean out the savage nomad infestation from Crimea.

    France and England are indirectly responsible for the Genocide of Christian Armenians, Assyrians, and Pontic Greeks. Without their help, Ottoman Turks would have been crushed by Tsarist Russia, their criminal empire would be dismantled and they would be in no position to carry out a Genocide.

    UK PM Makes Surprise Visit To Ukraine: Will Support Kyiv ‘Until Ukraine Has Won

    Crucially Sunak vowed that the UK will support Ukraine until it has “won”. He told a news conference alongside Zelensky, “I am here today to say that the U.K. will continue to stand with you… until Ukraine has won the peace and security it needs and deserves.”

    “It is deeply humbling to be with you in your country today. The courage of the Ukrainian people is an inspiration to the world,” Sunak added.

    The prime minister said the new package is worth £50 million ($60 million) and includes “125 anti-aircraft guns and technology to counter deadly Iranian-supplied drones, including dozens of radars and anti-drone electronic warfare capability.”

    Earlier last week British Defence Secretary Ben Wallace unveiled that 1,000 new air-defense missiles will be sent to Ukrainian forces. It’s expected that the West will continue focusing on sending advanced anti-air missiles given Russia has lately ramped up large-scale air attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.

    Rishi Sunak is not a US person, if this is a US war, then why is Sunak grovelling at the feet of Zelinsky? His repetition of the blather about “The courage of the Ukrainian people” is the same as his blather about safe and effective vaccines, global warming and CBDC. It is all a pathetic show, and all these “leaders” repeating it are just clowns on a string. If the members of this tribal cabal pulling these strings happen to be “American”, then they are dual citizen Americans.

  126. @Carlton Meyer

    If indeed the Russians mount an attack through Belarus, the most logical line of advance would begin about 75 kilometers west of Chernobyl, down the rail corridor. through Korostan, thence via Zhytomyr, onwards Vinnytsya and ultimately reaching the Dniester River on the Moldovan border.

    Such an incursion would totally cut off the Kiev puppet regime off from communication with Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and northern Romania. Further, a rail connexion from the Carpathian ridge extension on a 300 k.m.line to Odessa. Thereby, there would be no pressing need to cross the Dnieper at any point to liberate Odessa, Nicolaev and Kherson.

    Meanwhile, the assault from the south and east would liberate the remainder of the Donetsk Oblast and likely inclusive of Zaparozhiya,Dnepropetrosk and Kharkov. Finally, already cut off from Ukraine proper, the Uniates and Banderites in Galicia, would be isolated, while the NovoUkranski government would negotiate with the Romanians, Hungarians and Slovaks in order to sort out new western borders.

    The Russians don’t have that kind of combat power to attack everywhere. They can place this 300,000 in one area and use firepower to push through. They can’t have these BTGs with 10 tanks and 800 men rolling behind in various armored cars. I would identify the main area of trouble for Ukraine and Russia as the plain between Zap-Sich and Donetsk. The Ukrainians would have to drive south to Melitopol and the Russians would have to drive north to surround and cut off Zap-Sich.

    “Until a very late stage of the war the commanders of the British and American ground forces knew that all too well, in a confrontation with the German troops on anything approaching equal terms, their own men were likely to be soundly defeated. They were better than we were. That cannot be stressed too often. Every Allied soldier involved in fighting the Germans knew this was so, and did not regard it as humiliating. We were amateurs drawn from peaceful industrialized societies with deep cultural biases against all things military, fighting the best professionals in the business. We blasted out way into Europe with a minimum of finesse and a maximum of high explosives”

    Sir Michael Howard, KCL’s War Studies founding professor. He was being disingenuous about the peacefulness of the British and Americans but the relevance of the quote is that a nice large plain with two prepared militaries fighting on it this December and January is very likely. The side with the firepower will probably triumph.

  143. @BayAreaSkeptic

    Judging simply by the number of homeless, as well as all the bloviating idiots who currently are politically dominant in the Bay Area; the great vortex which is created by the shape and structure of San Francisco Bay, happens to be in one of its great downer cycles psycho-emotionally since I escaped from “Dodge” in early 1970.

    “We haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine”. That key message from “Hotel California”, likely subconsciously, but in tune with cosmic cyclicality, was spot-on. When I departed from S.F. that January evening, I felt impelled to turn on the car radio. The music immediately cut to Merle Haggard’s “Okie from Muskogee”. Coincidentally, one might call it, but more properly one of Jung’s “overloaded coincidences”, I’d picked up a hitchhiker just previous to hitting through San Jose. Asked him where he was from. “Oklahoma”. What town? “Muskogee”

    . It harkened me back to hitting the Bay Bridge, coming outta Oakland, when I was previously impelled to hit the “on” knob for the radio. Without even having to dial the channels, here was Otis Redding “Sitting on the dock of the Bay”. I happened to glance out the windshield just then. To the right, a white on green sign caught my attention”: “San Francisco City Limit”.

    Yeah, everything is connected…if you allow your inner-being to tune into the musical messages. So this posting from B.A.S. simply confirms for me that the downer vibe which took over the Bay Area at the end of Sixty-Nine, the final culmination of the “peace and love” vibe which had dominated that scene, beginning with Kerouac, Ginsburg, that little bookshop in Northbeach and the rest of the Beatnik awakeners clear back in the mid-Fifties and crescendoed in the 1967 “Summer of Love” , with the Grand Finale occurring with the half-million of us who took part in the great peace-march in October of ’69.

    Though military and economic aspects of the war in Ukraine, called in from those “owners” In City of London, happen to express a veritable hurricane of change; when one tunes in to the deeper aspects ,the underlying reality is the major spiritual conflict which comprises the denouement of the Age of Pisces and quite possibly that of the Kali-Yuga grand cycle of 6,000 years. As Shakespeare pointed out in Hamlet’s riposte: “There is more to heaven and earth than is dreamt of in your philosophy, Horatio.”

    Ivana Ivanovna,

    There is a recent mini series from Russian TV called “The Golden Horde”. They don’t like to talk about it? set in the time of Hulegu and Berke Khan. They make a smaltzy Miniseries about it.

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt13491986/

    I’ve pointed out elsewhere that while European literature and cinema like to make fantasies like Lord of the Rings and or Conan the Barbarian, Game of Thrones, for the Russians these stories about slanty barbarians, it’s just another historical drama.

    Additionally the Lithuanians and Poles were just as likely to side with the Mongols and Tartars as side against them.

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

    “In the 14th century, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania covered vast territories. In the east, it was bordered by the Tatar lands. The two nations communicated with each other, Khans’ messengers visited the then capital of Trakai. The first Tatars came to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania as allies in the battles against the crusaders already during the rule of the Grand Duke Gediminas in 1319-1320. Vytautas the Great took the first Tatars to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania after the campaigns in 1397-1398 to the Dnieper and Don steppes together with Khan Tokhtamysh, who tried to regain his Khanate of the Golden Horde with the Lithuanian aid. The Tatars then settled in Trakai and its surroundings. The earliest settlements spread along the Vokė River. On 15 July 1410, a contingent of Tatars participated in the famous Battle of Grunwald together with the Grand Duke Vytautas.”

    try harder.

    One wrinkle in the Mongol yoke is that it was strapped onto the Frankish kingdoms in Palestine.

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

    “The Mongol Empire’s westward expansion reached the Middle East when the Mongols conquered the Khwarazmian Empire in Central Asia in 1227. Part of the Khwarazmian army fled to eastern Anatolia and these masterless Turkic soldiers offered their services to the neighbouring rulers for pay. Western Christians regarded the Mongols as potential allies against the Muslims because some Mongol tribes adhered to Nestorian Christianity. In fact, most Mongols were pagans with a strong belief in their Great Khan’s divine right to universal rule, and they demanded unconditional submission from both Christians and Muslims. As-Salih Ayyub hired the Khwarazmians and garrisoned new mamluk troops in Egypt, alarming his uncle As-Salih Ismail, Emir of Damascus. Ismail bought the Franks’ alliance by a promise to restore ‘all the lands that Saladin had reconquered’. Catholic priests took possession of the Dome of the Rock, but in July 1244 Khwarazmians marching towards Egypt sacked Jerusalem unexpectedly. The Franks gathered all available troops and joined Ismail near Gaza, but the Khwarazmians and Egyptians defeated the Frankish and Damascene coalition at La Forbie on 18 October.”

Until the snake’s spoils of the war evaporate.

  169. Given his history since the fall of the Russia-friendly Yanukovych government in 2014, count me as unconvinced that Mr. Putin, as Whitney suggests, is prepared to smash Ukraine with the Russian “sledgehammer.” At least, that not been his history so far.

    He did nothing (except for taking back Crimea) after the success of the CIA orchestrated coup. The appeals from Lugansk and Donetsk went largely unanswered for 8 years, until it became obvious that they were about to fall.

    His SMO was initiated with insufficient troops. It wasted valuable time, allowing the US/NATO to flood Ukraine with more and more high-tech weapons. One wonders how he ever thought that his undermanned SMO would be successful.

    Why didn’t the call-up of 300,000 fresh troops occur months before? By the accounts I’ve read, they won’t be ready to fight until December. Now the Russians are telegraphing their plans to roll in their tanks after the ground freezes. Will Ukraine, led by US “advisors,” not have a counter ready? In the meantime, Ukraine took the initiative to take back territory it lost in the recent referendums, something that Scott Ritter and others said Russia wouldn’t allow to happen. How many voted to join with Russia, only to see their towns and villages be again under Ukrainian control?

    It’s hard for me to believe it but is it possible that Putin was naive to think that the US War Party would willingly give up its plans for World Domination? Indeed, they’re poised to fight to the last Ukrainian and Zelensky is willing to oblige.

    These point and others lead me to wonder if Putin is prepared to finally put the hammer down and do whatever it takes to end this ghastly war quickly. Being a natural sceptic, I’ll believe it when I see it.

    I agree it doesn’t make sense (for the faux-west-globalist billionaires to act against, what you would think they would know to be against their self-interest). Yet they do. For instance, how else do you explain why this Peter Zeihan has such a big following, … and has the floor now (along with George Friedman) within western geopolitical commentator circles, with his claims that the break-up of the Russia Federation is matter of inevitability (despite who the various leaderships are, which doesn’t matter apparently, because all this is just matter of the actual geographic, climatic, political, populist, demographic, industrial-base, and energy-access conditions for the Russians, in this conflict, which all goes against them apparently, to such a high degree, that soon we will all see, before the end of the year, that Russia will begin to see a massive Nato-backed Ukrainian assault routing Russian forces to the degree that renders the Kherson events as a cudgel to bludgeon Russia enough, by Russia’s supposed disadvantages there, to give up the entire Crimea, and completely retreat from that isthmus, as their best option):

    It’s crazy (the narrative crafted by our side, which unfortunately is the faux-west globalist side) – eh? No respect for the existential right to exist, for the Russian Federation, is what is what our side maintains. Thus no real negotiations are even possible under these faux-western-glabalist-imposed conditions.

    As such, though it does not make sense, as you say, for the faux-west-globalist billionaires to act against, what you would think they would know to be against their self-interest, …. note that it doesn’t have to make sense, if indeed these players use a different metric, as to ‘what makes sense when calculating risk’, because it is also true that the top echelons of faux-west-globalism seems to be populated by self-serving manipulative psychopaths, who figure ‘risk’ differently than regular folk, because ‘deception’ is a tool they constantly use (it’s almost like ‘breathing’ to them, …. completely natural), whereas non-psychos, don’t.

    One thing I have noticed in my life, is most people are extremely naive about psychopaths. I know I was. It wasn’t until my mid-50’s, after being on the receiving end of that, in continuing close personal contact, more than once, ….. that I could begin to see how this issue effects the larger culture, ….. the pain of the psychopath’s gas-lighting, is very very anguish-worthy, and takes alot of time to process and put in proper perspective (after the fact, after you get yourself away from the psycho, …. it is almost impossible to process this properly, if still engaged with said psycho).

    Mr. Smith, …. I am telling you, …. many many of our faux-west-globalist political leaders, display many many signs of psychopathy (but one needs to pay the personal price, to even be able to grok that). Don’ take my word for it, if you like. Maybe in the end, you will find out on your own (by getting psycho-gas-lit-spurged-upon, in close personal relationship, yourself, like happened to me). By then though, it may be too late to do anything about it, for the health of our overall culture. I hope you reconsider.

    The cope that Russia is “holding back” or are strategic geniuses are hilarious.

    They were arrogant enough to think that they could win, while running an Army that had been plagued by corruption for decades and was still using WW2 tactics (remember how many flat tyres their trucks and armoured vehicles had because they were using cheap Chinese tyres instead of the ones they were meant to buy, but their brass were pocketing the rest?)

    Firstly the Russia-philes were saying Russia was never going to invade (they can have their army on the border, it’s their territory, NATO is being provocative by saying this),

    Then it was the entire Ukrainian population was ready with Russian flags to welcome them, entire divisions of the Ukrainian army were going to switch sides,

    Kiev was going to fall in days….

    Then it was Kiev was only a feint!!! Putin is the next Napoleon, it will be over in weeks and Zelensky has run to Poland.

    Then after their initial gains slowed down (most of what they “gained” they’d defacto held anyway) it was that they were “grinding down” the Ukrainian army (because Russia was choosing this fight) then when Ukraine launched the counter offensive it was “Russia never wanted that land anyway”

    I Went to Ukraine, and I Saw a Resolve That We Should Learn From
    By Nicholas Kristof
    Nov. 16, 2022

    IZIUM, Ukraine — Inna Osipova pointed to the 30-foot pile of rubble that is all that’s left of her apartment building. She and her 5-year-old son narrowly escaped when Russian shelling destroyed the structure, but her grandmother did not and is interred somewhere in the wreckage. Osipova hopes her body will be found so she can be given a proper burial.

    Her voice cracked with emotion, but she held together until I asked what she thought of Americans who say it’s time to move on from supporting Ukraine.

    “We’re people, you understand,” she said, and she began weeping. “It doesn’t matter if we’re Ukrainian or American — such things should not happen.” And then she was crying too hard to continue.

    These areas in northeastern Ukraine, recently liberated after months of Russian occupation, show what’s at stake as some Americans and Europeans seek to trim assistance for Ukraine. There are bombed-out buildings, survivors cooking over open fires outside, children injured by land mines, freshly vacated Russian torture chambers — 23 discovered so far here in the Kharkiv region alone — along with mass graves of corpses with hands tied and shattered limbs.

    One of the views is from the major media outlets such as the NYT, the Washington Post, CNN, NBC and the rest of what’s known as the legacy media. To be fair there are some dissenting views within these outlets, but by and large the over riding view put forward is one of a courageous struggle by a democracy loving people against a totalitarian evil dictator. The war is portrayed as one whose outcome is in question, and
    an Ukrainian victory is within its grasp with the unstinting support of its Western allies. On the other side are a handful of critics who stress that the outcome of the War has never been in doubt. With the question being the extent of Russia’s victory.
    For the normal consumer of news it’s very hard to decide whose assessment is correct or even more correct. On the one hand it’s hard to believe that the entire Western world’s governments, and major media could be so wrong as to bring into question their basic honesty. On the other hand, although the few individuals who argue that Russia is not only winning the war, but invaded with some justification offer a well reasoned defense of their stance, while their claim of out and out propaganda by the MSM also rings true one is still left confused.
    All wars bring forth massive propaganda, and arguments based on plausibility of their arguments are somewhat circular.

    You make several good points. Much of the infrastructure and industrial assets are Soviet or even Imperial Russian in origin. Little has been invested since the end of Communism. In part this is due to the corruption and consequent impoverishment – Ukraine is the poorest country in Europe, even poorer than Albania – but also the control of the economy by oligarchs. 3 of the top 5 oligarchs are Jewish. This is a latter day form of arenda. Assets are bought low and nearly all profits shipped out the country.

    Russian investment in infrastructure and industry and commerce will take many years to come to fruition. It will be costly, but necessary. I don’t doubt its success in the long term. For the other 3/4 of the country that remains as the Ukraine, there will be a stark choice. Get control, or. even better, get rid of the oligarchs, especially the Zionist Jews, for whom Zelensky is a sockpuppet. Put measures in to control corruption. Accept its position as a neutral state. If not, Ukraine will end up as a failed state.

    Maybe Putin would have wondered why all his neighbors want to join NATO if he’s so brilliant and it might have to do with Russias behavior in Eastern Europe being similar to Americas in the Middle East.

    I don’t know if you are joking, however, this is a characteristic of Russian campaigns. The British tend to have similar easy defeats then manage to organise coalitions that they join primarily just to be on the winning side. The US tends to lose these expeditionary overseas wars but also consolidates power anyway. It’s a mistake to count Russia out after early embarrassments.

    Wokie: You happen to be overlooking one elementary factor. The Ukrainian army, even with supplements from Polak soldiers, mercenaries from many lands (including CIA head choppers flown in from their Turkish-protected Syrian enclave of Idlib) and so-called “Territorial” units scraped off the streets of Ukrainian towns and cities, most of them over 40 and younger than 18. That military “force” is but a shell of its previous integrity.

    Russian missilry has cut Ukrainian electrical supplies in half, meaning that the transfer of troops and the logistical side (which is the primary factor in war) are almost overwhelmingly challenged as their rail network is almost entirely powered by electrical lines.

    Ukrainian equipment, most of it these days from the U$$A and various NATO lands is a wild assortment of types, often lacking in spare parts and frequently deficient in munitions. Some of the more complex systems, such as the Hymar missiles are not manned by untrained Ukies, rather by Yanks, working for some element of the U$$A military and/or CIA.

    The navy and airfarce of the Ukes are virtually nonexistent. Any major movements of troops will be rapidly intercepted and overwhelmed by RU planes, missiles and artillery…no air-cover.

    After losing most of their cadres during the first nearly nine months of the war, Ukraine has very few motivated NCO’s and line officers remaining. Command and control centers have been ruthlessly attacked by their opponents. Morale has deteriorated to the lip of the breaking point.

    My proposal, with let us say 8 to 10 Russian divisions, fully mechanized and with additional supply units, will be able to sweep on a front of some 50 miles in width, over the frozen ground, clear down that corridor. With one or two brigade exceptions, their opponents will be almost entirely made up of conscripts, perhaps the majority of them secondarily armed with white handkerchiefs in their back pockets. Their only chance for survival would be to gun down the relative handful of Banderites there to keep them in line and then to surrender en masse.

    That northern force would encompass perhaps 20% of available Russian forces. Other elements would gradually push through the remaining holdouts in the Donbass at the same time as additional forces pour up the countryside in the directions of Zaporozhiya and Kharkov.

    What remains of Ukrainian units in the Kiev area would overcome their secret police enemies and quickly remove all elements of the puppet regime and rapidly sue for peace. Setting all the terms of surrender (and reconstruction of electricity grids as well as food and medicine) Russia will accept graciously the surrender.

    That is the most dangerous belief in the little brains of many in the West, not because they are many but because some, or maybe many, in positions of power seem to share the same view. (Which is another element of proof in favor of the hypothesis that COVID19 may have eaten up deeply into the gray matter of White Europeans in general). The belief that ww3 will be fought with conventional weapons.

    And I am serious about my hypothesis, that COVID19 has ravaged the brains of the collective West and brought their average IQ at least some 20 to 30 points down, by way of this comparison. Only 60 years ago, during the Cold War, and specially during the Missile Crisis of October 1962, everyone and his dog understood that if war broke out between the US and the USSR it would immediately turn into a nuclear exchange. The fact that people at that time didn’t need to know much about military matters to understand that, while nowadays even some individuals in positions of power actually fool themselves in the nonsensical belief that a US vs Russia can be “contained” within the parameters of a conventional war, is enough to convince me of how much the general intellect of mankind has gone down, at least that of the people in the West.

    On the other hand, the sovereign countries of NATO had the sovereign obligation to keep their word to Russia not to expand, “one inch” to the east of Germany – regardless of the desires of sovereign nutcase countries who wanted in – if Russia would allow East Germany to reunify with West Germany.

    He literally replaced your “genocidal Nazi regime which was violently and illegally installed”, in an election, you know those things that dictators definitely have.

    It appears to me that whatever metrics you are trying to use to gauge the situation in Ukraine are exccedingly niave.

    Indeed he did replace the genocidal Nazi regime – on a platform of bringing peace to Ukraine by establishing a ceasefire with the separatist republics (a cessation of the attacks against the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics by the Nazi regime which he replaced) and returning to the Minsk Accords.

    How has that been going for Ukraine?

    It turns out that Ukraine’s “democratic” saviour Zelensky has reneged on all of his election promises – those promises to the people of Ukraine which got him elected in free and fair elections. The elections may well have been “free and fair” – but Zelensky was bald-faced lying to them, you know, the “free and fair elections” that dictators like to have.

    Instead, Zelensky has not only continued the genocidal assault on the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics, he has upped the ante by preparing a full-scale invasion of said republics (stopped just in time by Russia’s direct intervention), threatening to acquire nuclear weapons to use against Russia, banned and arrested opposing political parties, and gone full retard by unleashing the might of the UkroNazis to commit war crimes and atrocities across Ukraine against Russians and Ukrainians alike.

    And he has a fortune (some say hundreds of millions, others say billions) stashed away overseas and a multimillion dollar mansion waiting for him in Florida, as he valiantly fights Russia to the last Ukrainian.

    FWIW, Adolf Hitler also got elected in “free and fair elections” – I keep an open mind on the intrinsic merits of his reign, but a great many people maintain that Hitler was a very naughty man.

    IMO a benevolent dictator is the best possible model of governance – but make sure you get a good one. Muammar Gaddafi was a good one, so was Fidel Castro, Saddam Hussein arguable but at least Iraq seemed to be thriving under his rule. Meanwhile, Zelensky – who is a puppet dictator controlled by Western warmongers – is definitely scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    The whole thing with the Russians reminds me the Soviet Army’s late summer disaster in 1941 when they lost about 3.5 million in casualties and POWs. However, within just a few months they were able to conscript another 1.5 million and to reform the army so effectively that even the Germans had to admit that they needed to introduce similar structural changes in Wehrmacht.

    I would say it is more like the Winter War where Stalin thought they could just waltz into Finland and take it all based on numbers alone.

    Stalin learned the mistake of arrogance and never underestimated the Germans. His mistake was assuming the war would take place at a later date. But he was secretly building massive tank factories that even the allies didn’t know about.

    Putin is no Stalin. He blew 1.3 billion on a mansion but didn’t make sure that his troops had enough body armor. He seems clueless about war in general as seen by his 1930s style invasion. There was never a backup plan and he doesn’t know what to do at this point.

    Conscripts are being told to buy their own boots and socks. What is this winter offensive going to look like? Just send conscripts in the direction of the enemy? As I pointed out in another thread the Russian trenches are inferior to the German trenches of WW1. What is the excuse?

    NASA commissioned a research team to study Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), observations of events that cannot scientifically be identified as known natural phenomena. The Main Astronomical Observatory of NAS of Ukraine conducts an independent study of UAP also. For UAP observations, we used two meteor stations installed in Kyiv and in the Vinarivka village in the south of the Kyiv region. Observations were performed with colour video cameras in the daytime sky. We have developed a special observation technique, for detecting and evaluating UAP characteristics. According to our data, there are two types of UAP, which we conventionally call: (1) Cosmics, and (2) Phantoms. We note that Cosmics are luminous objects, brighter than the background of the sky. We call these ships names of birds (swift, falcon, eagle). Phantoms are dark objects, with contrast from several to about 50 per cent. We present a broad range of UAPs. We see them everywhere. We observe a significant number of objects whose nature is not clear. Flights of single, group and squadrons of the ships were detected, moving at speeds from 3 to 15 degrees per second. Some bright objects exhibit regular brightness variability in the range of 10 – 20 Hz. Two-site observations of UAPs at a base of 120 km with two synchronised cameras allowed the detection of a variable object, at an altitude of 1170 km. It flashes for one hundredth of a second at an average of 20 Hz. We use colourimetry methods to determine of distance to objects and evaluate their color characteristics. Objects RGB colors of the Adobe color system had converted to the Johnson BVR astronomical color system using the color corrections. Phantom shows the colur characteristics inherent in an object with zero albedos. It is a completely black body that does not emit and absorbs all the radiation falling on it. We see an object because it shields radiation due to Rayleigh scattering. An object contrast makes it possible to estimate the distance using colorimetric methods. Phantoms are observed in the troposphere at distances up to 10 – 12 km. We estimate their size from 3 to 12 meters and speeds up to 15 km/s.

Well in that case, Zelensky (and his predecessor Poroshenko) are the weaklings, because they let that happen (i.e. – they did not seek to appease the grassroots on the insurgency side, and as well they sought to inflame the grassroots on the counter-insurgency side, as far as I know). Since it was their country, under their leadership, so it was their execution of responsibilities that was at stake here, there is only one way to look at this, … they both have been massive massive failures, in terms of their stated mission, to be genuine, accomplished, and competent advocates for Ukraine, which is laughable to claim that, now that some of their nation is in shambles, due their dereliction of duty.

    As such it is downright psychopathic of the Biden admin, Biden, Nato, and various Nato officials to claim that it’s up to Zelensky to decide when to negotiate with Russia, and then be the one to handle those negotiations. Wut? Are you kidding me? Now why would our western leaders take that stance, if indeed they cared about Ukraine or Ukrainians? They don’t. Thus they leave what at best could be deemed incompetents, to continue there. Probably because Zelensky (and his predecessor Poroshenko) are not just incompetents – right?

They would have to start in Belarus and Ukraine would be ready with artillery. Maybe you think enough tanks will make it into Kiev. So what? Reserves will pop out with NLAWs which is what happened in the first battle.

    My position is that I support free men and free thought across the globe. Putin is the antithesis of free thought. He has banned calling it a war which is language control and a tactic of the left. He fears open thought and debate. I can sense a weak man a mile away. He is weak and his limitless power and wealth doesn’t change that. His weakness is exhibited by his fear of competition. Real men welcome competition as they find it affirming of their strengths.

    Look at this medically unfit Diabatic General ? He reminds me of first black secretary of state Collin Powel who told nothing but the truth and whole truth in UN about Iraq’s weapons oh mass destruction.

    Thank you for posting a video of McGregor talking to a stoned zombie.

    McGregor also once told that stoned zombie that Ukraine was doomed and should negotiate as soon as possible. Shall I dig up that video for you?

    He is obviously in the pocket of RT News. Him and a certain blacklisted US military analyst are on the take. That is why their analysis is completely one sided. I can fully acknowledge Russian strengths and it doesn’t hurt my feelings. I support Ukraine but in the early part of the war I fully acknowledged that Russia had better air power. In every McGregor video he talks about Ukraine in negative terms. He is getting a bitcoin drop every month. His analysis is too one sided just like a certain military analyst that was blacklisted for sex crimes and now writes for RT News.

    ———
    What Will Russia Without Putin Look Like? Maybe This.
    Nov. 21, 2022, 1:00 a.m. ET
    By Joy Neumeyer – Ms. Neumeyer is a journalist and historian of Russia and Eastern Europe.

    Russia’s current condition — militarized, isolated, corrupt, dominated by the security services and hemorrhaging talent as hundreds of thousands flee abroad to escape service in a horrific war — is bleak.

    In hopes of an end to this grim reality, some wait expectantly for Vladimir Putin to leave office. To change the country, however, it is not enough for Mr. Putin to die or step down. Russia’s future leaders must dismantle and transform the structures over which he has presided for more than two decades. The challenge, to say the least, is daunting. But a group of politicians is devising a plan to meet it.

    Composed of well-known opposition figures as well as younger representatives from local and regional governments, the First Congress of People’s Deputies of Russia met in Poland in early November. The location, Jablonna Palace outside Warsaw, was symbolic: It was the site of early negotiations in the round-table talks that led to the end of Communist rule in Poland. There, over three days of intense debate, participants laid out proposals for rebuilding their country. Taken together, they amount to a serious effort to imagine Russia without Mr. Putin.

Russia can deal with being in a state of permanent conflict with New Khazaria/the Ukraine and Oceania/NATO. But we’ll see what the consequences of this will have on the EU; will the EU be able to cope with it and how? I’d like to see this conflict over as soon as possible and peace restored but why does everyone think that it must be resolved? Maybe it suits US, Russia, and the Jews that it is not resolved and remains there to occasionally flare up an then subside for some time to come. In the meantime Russia can concentrate on strengthening its links to Eurasia and Third World countries while the US consolidates further its control of the EU.

    The recent withdrawal of Russian troops in the Kherson region to the east bank of the Dnieper (during which they destroyed bridges across the river) seems more like an obvious opportunity for a negotiated settlement than a prelude to a substantial escalation of the ground war, which will be needed to push Ukrainian troops back — with the war dragging on, sanctions still in place, and ongoing massive financial and military aid to Ukraine from the West, Moscow may not have the stomach for that, and whatever popular support there is for the war in Russia will probably weaken substantially.

    That will be the case on the Ukrainian front. But this Ukraine war is the opening salvo in a prolonged showdown where ultimately one party to the conflict will emerge clearly victorious. The Western people have every interest in a quick resolution to this madness but as for the Western cabal, I am not so sure they are ready to give up their pipe dream of world domination and having the world’s population along their leaders kneel to them. This might drag the conflict in other ways but the net result will be a resounding defeat for the Western “ rules based order” in favor of a world under international law. How long will the war last is anybody’s guess, but I would not bet that it stretches beyond a decade should the Western cabal keep doubling down until the bitter end, for they are clearly on their last leg.

    Thank-you for the reply.

    “It wasn’t grassroots, it was astroturfed. Nowhere in Ukraine are ethnic Russians the majority, even Luhansk they’re 37% of the population.”

    Mmmmm, … I think ‘37%’ denotes ‘real people’ (and not ‘people’ like ‘solyent green’ means ‘people’, let’s say). So why wouldn’t the Ukraine regime seek to negotiate the aggrieved parties that Russia was trying to inflame? They are real people – no? I claimed in my comment #252 you are responding to, that the Zelensky and Poroshenko regimes, did the opposite of that, and that makes them culpable. I am pretty sure the logic of that statement stands.

    “It was not some “popular” uprising. It was an entirely Russian glowie operation. Every single aspect of this has been as a result of Russian action.”

    Yet, nevertheless, taking your premise as fact (which I actually don’t think it is, … I think this ‘astroturfing’ thing you are talking about probably occurred on both sides, and as well, the 37% ethnicity signal isn’t the only issue people there have been concerned about [i.e. – attacks on the ethnicity], the Donbass has majority Russian-as-first-language-speakers, and the ‘grassroots’ conflict, morphed in an ‘astroturfed’ conflict, on both sides, over language-use issues, as well) the conclusion that both the Zelensky and Poroshenko regimes, were massive massive failures, in terms of their stated mission, to be genuine, accomplished, and competent advocates for Ukraine, which is laughable to claim that competency, now that some of their nation is in shambles, due their dereliction of duty, stands as valid criticism.

    As such, it continued to be absolutely crazy that our side (which unfortunately is the faux-west globalist side) maintains that it is the nation-wreckers (Zelensky regime as supported by the earlier work of the Poroshenko regime) that should continue to negotiate on behalf of Ukraine (and world peace actually, because everybody knows this is a Nato proxy war with Russia in Ukraine).

    Look, ….. maybe I can restate this in a different way, to better impart my sentiment: There is no way, no how that Zelensky should be allowed to negotiate for world peace. He appears to be compromised in several ways. Since the faux-west globalist powers continue to maintain that the man who has massively failed the nation he maintains he is in an existential fight for, to also negotiate for world peace, ….. it is quite clear all this has been designed to ensure continued failure in Ukraine for the sake of the Ukrainians, and a continued failure of finding world peace, for the sake of all if humanity. How is this sentiment wrong?

    “As for everything else you’ve said, you’re attempting to refute a bunch of things I haven’t said, so go your hardest”

    OK, fair enough, if you think I put words in your mouth, … in all fairness I should instead respect what you are really saying, …. and as such, the onus is therefore on you to clarify how I have misunderstood you, so I can attempt to that. Please clarify how I am arguing against a position that apparently, as per your quoted claim, that you do not hold (i.e. – I am not seeing it).

    What are you talking about. I’m NOT talking about Russia, I am talking about open warfare between Russia and NATO, specifically nuclear war. It seems you have some problems understanding regular written texts (I hate this kind of respondent). Anyone with a working brain understands that they are two very different things and we all have the most dramatic example to prove it.

    After ww2 the prevailing foreign policy doctrine in the U.S. political establishment and the MIC face to the stark reality of the possession of the A-bomb (let alone the H-Bomb) by the USSR was that of Containment of the Communist superpower, devised by George Kennan and implemented by the presidency of Harry Truman. So we can say that the USSR was actually being contained for more than a decade until Washington installed some missiles in Turkey and tried also to invade Cuba, which made the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev forget about the doctrine and respond in kind, thus getting out the USSR of that US-made “container”. We all know the result, the Missile Crisis of Cuba in October 1962, which put the world on the brink of nuclear war. During that period nuclear strikes by both the US and the USSR against each other became entirely possible, even with the Doctrine of Containment in full force…! And we also have the most spectacular proof that after that incident the Doctrine of Containment kept in full force…in the Vietnam War. So there you have it, containment of the USSR, or Russia, or China, and all out nuclear war are two different animals and may follow also independent paths. One doesn’t exclude the other.

    , ….. that you are aware that people died during the 8 year conflict. Let’s not quibble about narrowly differing definitions of ‘genocide’ (at least for the moment), …. you do agree that this 8 year conflict saw the deaths of many many thousands in the Donbass region – right? If so, …. there is no way around it, Zelensky (with the help of the prior-actions of the Poroshenko regime that preceded him) is a massive failure in terms of bringing positive change to Ukraine, …., yet also in your comment-exchange thread with Ultrafart The Brave, culminating in your comment #245, ….., you were insinuating that the Zelensky regime is legitimate. It is clearly not. Now, quibble-wise, we could also discuss the precise timing, as to when this condition, of Zelensky-regime-illegitimacy taking-root, befell Ukraine, ….. but I am hoping you will, at least for the moment, agree that it is impossible to logically conclude that as of Nov/22, the Zelensky regime is legitimate for the task at hand (conduct the war towards a negotiated peace). I mean, to argue for that (Zelensky regime legitimacy), at this juncture, is just a joke. If he ever had any legitimacy, he squandered and lost that along the way, by way of all his wonky actions, since 2019, and he has zero legitimacy left. That’s why there is such pervasive censorship within Ukraine, since he came on the scene.

    Just for the record (so you understand my way of seeing things), … the Biden admin is illegitimate as well. I would argue same for the Trudeau regime. For the case of Biden and Trudeau, …. the issue is that any goodwill they actually may have had (that wasn’t just politico-engineered, let’s say) has been squandered in the same way as has occurred in Ukraine, under the Zelensky regime, since 2019, …. both Biden and Trudeau have been such complete disasters, since their last elections, … any true mandate they may have had (and even that is very debatable in the case of Biden) has been gas-lit out of existence, and now it seems only sycophants remain (of which, nevertheless, there are many, … money-talks-corruption and such). The same probably would have been true of Zelensky, if the whole narrative-dynamics were not overwhelmed by the growing war-tensions and then this war, but nevertheless, all his actions, since taking office in 2019, Donbass-tension-wise, have been of the same ilk, … a complete disaster in every way, as such rendering any mandate he may have had in 2019, as gas-lit out of existence now, to the point he is now only surrounded by sycophants (both locally in Ukraine, and globally as well, as promoted by the money-talks-corrupting faux-west globalists), …. and the local sycophants are weird ones at that, …. ones that may have an agenda separate from Zelensky, actually, as per their crazy over-the-top ethno-fascistic tendencies.

    As the Ukraine steps up the shelling of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant look to Russia making another major withdrawal from that area so as to save its troops, the people and Europe from a massive nuclear accident, kind of like they withdrew from Kherson because of the potential breaking of the dam. This is of course a much bigger threat to civilians, Russian military, and even Europe at large than that dam. Of course Europe will not thank them but celebrate another Ukrainian victory. Russia will be able to justify this withdrawal to its public because of the nuclear hazard. I think this could happen soon. Of course the alternative would have been to have pushed the Ukrainians well out of artillery range of both the dam and the nuclear power plant but too late for that now. However, the regrouping of all the troops from all those regions they’re withdrawing from should make it easy to completely liberate Donbas in no time at all … or here’s hoping.

    That Russia does seem rather contained and constrained suggests that NATO is achieving some of its objectives. NATO gets to complain that Ukrainians are dying and missles are getting used up, none of which really worries NATO.

    That Germany will suffer a cold winter is a feature to some of the other members, and not a bug. As Lord Ismay said, the purpose of NATO is to “keep the Soviet Union out, the Americans in, and the Germans down.” Update the first nation’s name, and it is easy to see that NATO’s purpose is still being advanced.

  307. @Pokie Joe

    And you still wonder WHY a 200 million man army will one day march from the north and east thru the plains of MEGIDDO towards JERUSALEM, capital of THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN ?

    This is a pertinent observation, but I suspect it might be a little premature.

    According to German mystic nun Anne Catherine Emerich, there’s another war yet to come which will see “the Turks” (apologies to Turks, nothing personal – apparently this was the vernacular f0r “Muslims” back in her day in Germany) overrun Europe once again – which will remain in force for some considerable time until a German King arises and unites Europe to drive “the Turks” back out of Europe.

    Only after all that transpires will the Antichrist rise to power and War of Armageddon take place.

    From another angle, various mystics from disparate locations and times have stated in almost verbatim terms that another war is coming in which “bombs of enormous power” will be used all across the Northern Hemisphere and only one country on Earth will be untouched by a single bomb (which is maybe why the filthy rich are buying up land and building bunkers in New Zealand). This sounds like WWIII, but is this the War of Armageddon? Could be – but “the Turks” will have to get moving and take over Europe first.

    From yet another angle, Martin Armstrong says his AI program Socrates predicts that the Globalists will fail with their attempted Great Reset and New World Order, and supposedly by around 2032 the Western Empire will have finally collapsed. In the meantime, Socrates projects the risk of WWIII getting underway around 2027 – which (given that Europe hasn’t been properly overrun by “the Turks” yet) again suggests that the Antichrist and the War of Armageddon are still someway further down the track after 2032.

    Meanwhile, let’s not forget to factor in the looming Grand Solar Minimum which is due to usher in some sort of ice age starting around 2030 (it could be a couple decades in duration, or it could be a 1,000 year doozie – historical records imply the latter).

    Bottom line – let’s not get ahead of ourselves, we just have to survive the f*cking psycopath Globalists and the collapse of the Western Empire over the next decade.

    You are apparently unaware that the academic conensus is that all of those mammals died due to climate change…

    When anyone cites “academic consensus”, it’s a fair bet that the exact opposite is true.

    After all, it’s just “academic” – and academics get paid to promote the politically correct narrative (and get sacked if they don’t).

    BTW, you really want to assert “climate change” as the cause of specific mass extinctions? That sounds awfully religious, seeing as how it takes such a leap of faith. Evidence of mass extinctions from the Great Flood is arguably at least as substantive.

    Don’t get me wrong, maybe you’re right – but it’s probably easier to argue about more proximate circumstances. Take for example the imminent Grand Solar Minimum – lots of genuine scientific analysis and historic data from recent recorded history to flesh that one out. And what’s more, we only have to wait about 10 years to see who’s right and who’s wrong, because if there’s going to be a “mini ice-age”, it will well and truly start to bite by around 2030.

    Freezing civilians to death by attacking infrastructure is a war crime.

    Oh really? How selective you guys are in your definitions. When Ukraine cut off Donbass from all supplies, destroyed its infrastructure, residential buildings, school, hospitals, cut off electricity to Crimea in plain winter, that was never a war crime. The crime was declared when Russia started helping people survive, for they were destined to die, them being genetically defective Russians and not worthy Ukrainians.

    So Putin’s cheerleaders have gone from telling us that Putin doesn’t attack civilians to celebrating attacks aimed directly at civilians.

    Putin doesn’t attack civilians. The strikes are precise and directed against the electric infrastructure and railroads, that is, everything needed to transport weapons the West so kindly provides. The same weapons used every day to kill civilians in Donbass. Something needs to be done about that, don’t you think? And what Russia is doing is way better than carpet bombing, which, naturally, can’t possibly be a war crime.

    Yet another cataclysmically moronic utterance. The climate has changed MANY times through Earth history, but it is the RATE and EXTENT that matters. At the end of a glaciation, because of the Milankovitch Cycles, you get relatively slow change over millennia, giving species time to adapt. But some do not, and go extinct, or evolve into new forms.
    But when the rate of climate change is too great, and the extent measured in several degrees Celsius, sometimes in as little as a few decades, then you risk a Mass Extinction. There have been five previous Mass Extinctions, three or four caused by ‘hot-house Earth’ events caused by massive forcings of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, from gigantic vulcanism.
    The sixth mass extinction is occurring now, to the Rightwing denialists’ utter indifference, or yet more denial. It is caused by a massive and very rapid forcing of greenhouse gases since the Industrial Revolution. It is well passed halting or reversal, in no small part due to the malevolent cretinism of omnicidal denialists, the assassins of their own (one presumes)species.

They would destroy all the artillery pieces there, kill off or capture the not terribly huge numbers of Ukie infantry, quite possibly mere conscripts and then call in their engineers and sappers who would create a nightmare of minefields crested with humongous barbed-wire entanglements and the fly back across the river.

    Oh, eventually, working those now snow-covered fields, under the cover of night and losing a bunch of their own engineers in the process; the Ukies might to clear that zone of artillery operations by February or so…just in time from Russian forces coming southwards down the Dnieper valley to clean up the entire mess.

    (Of course if it escalates to a nuclear confrontation then all sides get wiped out).

    The options for Russia are not destroy or be destroyed. Instead they are :

    Destroy the Judeo-fascist Ukrainian proxy solely OR do that and IN ADDITION destroy/dismember NATO and the Anglo-Zionist Empire (AZE) as well.

    Yes, yes, we get it – “At the speed of science”, or some such such fluff.

    It’s very strange to qualify your alleged “greenhouse gas forcing” as “massive”, given that CO2 levels are actually at millennia lows right around now (as are atmospheric oxygen levels, BTW). How would you have characterised the “greenhouse gas forcing” back when the entire planet was covered in lush rainforests and the average global temperature was much higher than it is now? “Stupendous”? “Galactic”? “Cataclysmic” (even though there was no cataclysm to speak of)?

    Speaking of greenhouses, do you know what greenhouse operators pump into their greenhouses to accelerate plant growth? Sure you do – it’s CO2, because plants thrive on CO2, turning it into plants and giving off oxygen in return!

    And BTW, just to flog a dead horse (because TBH yours sure ain’t looking too sprightly) by far the largest contibutor to the so-called atmospheric “Greenhouse Effect” is water vapour, not CO2, which plays a minor (if any) role in that process. I guess you’d better get a bucket and go empty the oceans to save us all from a fiery death.

I would suggest that the “traitors” in this case are our politicians and beauracrats.

    As for being “deluded”, I wouldn’t attempt to second-guess President Putin or the Russian Security Council, but I’d hazard a guess that Ukraine has little prospect of prevailing militarily against Russia in a conventional conflict, even with the full backing of the combined West. Given that assessment, Ukraine’s continuation with the conflict seems rather futile – why not just honour Zelenky’s election promises, return to compliance with the agreed Minsk accords and sue for peace with Russia?

    Indeed – despite all the doom and gloom, sometimes the bedtime story has a happy ending.

    The liberated citizens of the former Donetsk and Lugansk Republics sure think so!

    You don’t understand. They aren’t self-declared Republics anymore. They are just Russian territory.

    Putin initially backed them as independent Republics as in independent countries with their own political systems. They had their own flags and anthems.

    After the invasion they were given a fake vote to join Russia. There was never a vote on if they wanted to be independent. DPR/LPR no longer exist.

    Most of the militia men are dead as they were sent to the front. Donbas is in ruins.

    That is a happy ending?

    The situation for all three regions was also essentially the same – gain the protection of being part of Russia, or face genocidal annihilation at the hands of the UkroNazis.

    The response from the people of all three regions was also essentially the same – overwhelming popular consent to join the Russian Federation.

    I hate to tell you, Brains, but the mammoth was almost certainly already dead, from old age or disease or misadventure when it began to freeze, probably first encased in snow. And, NO, this has NOT occurred before. There have been glacial episodes triggered by comet or meteorite collisions, or by super-volcano eruptions, but NOT by human activities. That is WHY atmospheric CO2 levels have gone from 280 ppm 200 years ago to the current 420 ppm, and 490 ppm equivalent when you factor in methane, nitrous oxide etc. Are you keeping up, Brains?
    If plants are ‘starving’ for CO2 at 420 ppm, why were they NOT dying of hunger at 280 ppm. Give us your best shot-I do need a laugh. And the CO2 levels being a ‘lagging’ indicator is only true of the ends of glaciations, when the Milankovitch cycles kick in, and melting permafrost and submarine clathrates release frozen biomass that is devoured by micro-organisms releasing CO2 and methane. I’ve told you and the other Big Brains that often, but you seem ineducable. As for ‘Socrates’- what an insult to the great thinker.

I’m surprised you are not supporting the other side, the one fighting global warming, instead of Russia. Can’t you see that the promotion of alternative, non fossil fuel, energy sources is part of the West’s anti-Russia policy to weaken Russia and facilitate its goal of breaking up the country and plundering Russian resources? Once the West accomplishes these aims it will suddenly declare that they had it all wrong about global warming and will start selling Russian oil and gas while pocketing the profits themselves, just like they are doing with Syrian oil from oil fields under US military occupation. And all the scientists and the UN will declare that it was all a mistake and Russian gas and oil will flow again, but under control of Western companies.

    If a few guys fire off a few bullets at each other and one side retreats that is registered as a defeat by the retreating side, and always has been throughout history. And if the advancing side suffers ten times the number of casualties of the retreating side it is still a victory, albeit a Pyrrhic victory. But the conflict is ongoing so a few battles do not a war make.

    I see more opportunities for Russians to retreat from the terroristic manner in which the Ukraine is fighting the war, threatening to blow up dams and nuclear power plants. A dam here, a nuclear plant there, a chemical plant elsewhere can all be blown up so the Russians have to withdraw to save lives.

    If Russia had continued hitting ever harder when it had the momentum, knocking out the Ukraine while it was still groggy from the initial attack, instead of playing rope a dope, there would be none of these risks of huge environmental catastrophies.

    Sorry, but nyet. Now you’re just trying to manufacture circumstances to fit your narrative. They’ve found dozens of the frozen mammoths and wooly rhinos since those revolutionary discoveries way back when, and some of the animals were so well preserved that prospectors, hunters and miners used them for meat. BTW, some of them had fresh grass still in their mouths.

    If plants are ‘starving’ for CO2 at 420 ppm, why were they NOT dying of hunger at 280 ppm.

    The obvious answer is – they were dying of hunger. Just so you know, NASA (they have satellites and shit) has been reporting that the Earth has gained substantially more vegetative cover since the CO2 levels have crept up a bit in recent years. Please don’t make light of the nutritional distress of the plants – they have feelings too. And starving’s not nice – just ask Starvin Marvin.

    “Charles Darwin, who denied the occurrence of continental catastrophes in the past, in a letter to Sir Henry Howorth admitted that the extinction of mammoths in Siberia was for him an insoluble problem. J.D. Dana, the leading American geologist of the second half of the last (19th) century, wrote: ‘The encasing in ice of huge elephants, and the perfect preservation of the flesh, shows that the cold became suddenly extreme, as of a single winter’s night, and knew no relenting afterward.’”
    –Chapter 1, Earth in Upheaval by Immanuel Velikovsky

    [MORE]

    Today in northeast Siberia, regarded as the coldest place on earth, where but moss and lichen grow, the vast herds of mammoths, rhinoceroses, and buffaloes, whose bones are amassed in great piles over a vast area which includes islands hundreds of miles north of the Arctic Circle, could not have lived. The vast muck beds of northern Alaska are filled with the twisted, disarticulated remains of these creatures.

    Liakhov Island, six hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle, is described as “absolutely packed full of the bones of elephants and rhinoceroses in astonishing numbers” and “the quantity of tusks and teeth of elephants and rhinoceroses in the newly discovered island of New Siberia, was perfectly amazing, and surpassing anything which had as yet been discovered.” On Koltenoi Island “neither trees , nor shrubs, nor bushes exist . . . and yet the bones of elephants, rhinoceroses, and buffaloes, are found in this icy wilderness in numbers which defy all calculation.”–Earth in Upheaval, Chapter 1

    These islands once had forests. Eduard von Toll made several trips to the New Siberian Islands and “examined the ‘wood hills’ and ‘found them to consist of carbonized trunks of trees, with impressions of leaves and fruits.’ On Maloi, one of the group of Liakhov Islands, Toll found bones of mammoths and other animals together with the trunks of fossil trees, with leaves and cones. ‘This striking discovery proves that in the days when the mammoths and rhinoceroses lived in northern Siberia, these desolate islands were covered in great forests, and bore a luxuriant vegetation’”. Earth in Upheaval, Chapter 1

    Uniformitarian dogma illogically and contrarily to fact insists that no large scale catastrophic changes in nature have occurred because we don’t observe that happening at present. Earth in Upheaval and Charles Hapgood’s The Path of the Pole are eye/mind openers.

    Velikovsky is immensely entertaining science fiction. When you speak of ‘elephants, rhinos, and (?)buffaloes’ found in the far north of Siberia, you are possibly talking of different species from those we know today in the lower latitudes. More thick-set and ‘woolly’ for surviving a much colder climate during the last glaciation. As for the forests, ‘cones’ indicate conifers, the type seen there today-you need to state a time period for these remains. They could be more ancient than the Quaternary glaciation. As much of that high latitude region was under thousands of feet of ice during the last glaciation, those forests must have come from an inter-glacial period, or from a period before the Quaternary glaciations began, which was about 2.6 million years ago.
    I rather think that catastrophes MUST have occurred. The planet is peppered with large craters from comet or meteor collisions, some massive. Super-volcanoes blow up regularly, and flood vulcanism probably caused ‘hot-house Earth’ mass extinctions, like the End Permian ‘Great Dying’.
    Then you have hypernovae, gamma ray bursts and the like, that could be very dangerous if ‘nearby’ in cosmic terms. But none of this changes the REALITY of anthropogenic climate destabilisation caused by greenhouse gas emissions.

    The lesson from Afghanistan has been drawn. The goal of the operation has remained exactly the same as it was when the SMO was launched: “denazify” and “demilitarise” mean destroy Ukraine’s capacity of nuisance, not choosing who will govern Ukraine.
    Russia is entitled to use force to stop and prevent further torture and murder of Russian civilians but if the Ukrainians are fine with Zelensky, Russia isn’t entitled to object.

    “This war will last for generations . “?

    “The crisis now unfolding, however, is entirely different to the 1970s in one crucial respect… The 1970s crisis was largely artificial. When all is said and done, the oil shock was nothing more than the emerging OPEC cartel asserting its newfound leverage following the peak of continental US oil production. There was no shortage of oil any more than the three-day-week had been caused by coal shortages. What they did, perhaps, give us a glimpse of was what might happen in the event that our economies depleted our fossil fuel reserves before we had found a more versatile and energy-dense alternative. . . . That system has been on the life-support of quantitative easing and near zero interest rates ever since. Indeed, so perilous a state has the system been in since 2008, it was essential that the people who claim to be our leaders avoid doing anything so foolish as to lockdown the economy or launch an undeclared economic war on one of the world’s biggest commodity exporters . . .
    And this is why the crisis we are beginning to experience will make the 1970s look like a golden age of peace and tranquility. . . . The sad reality though, is that our leaders – at least within the western empire – have bought into a vision of the future which cannot work without some new and yet-to-be-discovered high-density energy source (which rules out all of the so-called green technologies whose main purpose is to concentrate relatively weak and diffuse energy sources). . . . Even as we struggle to reimagine the 1970s in an attempt to understand the current situation, the only people on Earth today who can even begin to imagine the economic and social horrors that await western populations are the survivors of the 1980s famine in Ethiopia, the hyperinflation in 1990s Zimbabwe, or, ironically, the Russians who survived the collapse of the Soviet Union.”

    Siberia was far from any ice sheet during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). Only southern Alaska was under the Cordilleran Unit during that time. The other four units of the Laurentide Ice Sheet are the Keewatin, Labrador, Greenland, and European. These five were the centers of spreading ice sheets.

    Academicians and explorers used common terms for the cold-adapted versions that we now call by different names, such as elephant for the now woolly mammoth (they are indeed elephants, and geneticists have mapped the mutations to the genome that adapted it to colder climes, though nothing nearly as cold as present-day Siberia). The contents of the stomachs and mouths of ice-encased mammoths clearly show they consumed plants that cannot grow in Siberia.

    What baffled Charles Darwin is still a mystery today–the extinction of the Pleistocene megafauna. It spanned the globe, and included numerous smaller-bodied species. No massive life-ending meteor caused it, nor Yellowstone supervolcano, nor gamma rays, etc.. I’m betting on a shifting of the poles, which not long ago was seriously debated among leading geologists, then became taboo. Charles Hapgood traces four shifts in the last 100,000 years.

    Far from being “entertaining science fiction,” as you call it, Velikovsky’s Earth in Upheaval, published in 1955, was based on the rock-bottom scientific knowledge of the time, and is still relevant today. His section on “Klimasturz” (Climate Surge) tracks the findings of eminent scientists and makes for fascinating reading.

    My apologies to Unzies for my foray into the off-topic zone, but I saw a need to butt-in. Mulga, I know you are certain of the doom of human-released greenhouse gases, but many very serious atmospheric scientists disagree and there is much dishonest rhetoric issued from politically motivated science-illiterates (such as Al Gore) and horrendous misapplication of computer models.

    …. he was NOT referring to any crisis likely to arise from alleged climate destabilisation from man-made CO2 emissions, seeing as we all know CO2 emissions (man-made or otherwise), are known to have an infinitesimal effect on climate.

    He was of course referring to the crisis that will be brought about from decades of reckless fiscal and monetary policy, aided and abetted by massive dollops of Socialism and Big Government (ie: the sort of things prescribed by Marxists like yourself).

    This crisis that commenter James Charles refers to will be made much worse by political chicanery that withholds the plentiful supplies of fossil fuels from the working poor, massively jacking up the price of energy, whilst simultaneously squandering taxpayers money on subsidising grossly inefficient Green energy boondoggles that are destroying the environment.

    So it brought a chuckle to me that you’d post an ‘Agree’ to someone whose thesis was clearly pro-fossil fuels.

    A brilliant response. Everything you said is true. And of course, it’s hard living here in the West where truth is a liar and the lie is the truth. Meanwhile, Europe commits economic suicide, the MSM vomit on the flag and all things holy and the people sink into box-set apathy.

    The worst is that the best of us are condemned to public silence. If we speak we are de-platformed, driven out of jobs, isolated and condemned.

    But it’s good to know there are people like yourself who can still think and see and stand.

    I was agreeing because we face an hydra-headed cataclysm. The neo-liberal capitalist economic abomination is collapsing more or less as predicted by Marx, under debt and inequality, and reduction in return on capital, which the blood-suckers have attempted to forestall by driving down wages.
    Then you have the death-throes of the Anglosphere Reich, which will destroy the world if no longer able to dominate it. And finally there is the ecological collapse, in every parameter, worsening at accelerating pace, synergistic and irreparable. Allied to these all is the collapse of intelligence in so many, which is illustrated by denialist imbecility, as personified by your pernicious gibberish, on display again here, with numerous falsehoods and omnicidal idiocies.

    Hi Mulga, the relevance to the notion of anthropogenic warming (hothouse!?) is that rapid, large scale changes in the past, Klimasturz included, demonstrate how quickly and substantially natural systems shift the earth’s climate.

    Now, let’s take man’s CO2 emissions. At 0.04 percent of the atmosphere, any signal from any possible increase from before, is frightfully small, embedded in a huge system of incredible complexity that already produces those rapid, substantial changes. A huge system that we very poorly understand and cannot successfully model for climate prediction. The frightfully small signal will thus be undiscernible amidst the complexity and scope of the natural system.

    This is not an enclosed box in a lab where a single variable of CO2 is altered and changes observed. We can’t even trust our past temperature readings. We also cut down forests, drain swamps, dam rivers, dry up the Caspian Sea, do megafarming with fertilizers and pesticides., destroy much wildlife, output poisonous substances in huge amounts.

    There is a lot of work to do in cleaning up our chemical pollution, changing destructive farming practices, preserving forests and wetlands, etc. rather than betting the house and making gigantic investments in CO2 reduction that resorts to intermittent, unreliable energy systems. I, like many hundreds of millions, live in a cold climate. We need reliable energy supply.

    And science is on the verge of great developments that will tap systems for abundant energy. Look up the Safire Project, read Bob Greenyer and others learning how energy and matter behave. We have time, if we learn to live in peace and stop egregious pollution and destruction, to develop and apply new knowledge (key parts of which were known in the 19th century.

    The anthropogenic factor is small potatoes compared with chemtrailing and other forms of climate “modification” employed by the U$$A government and other perps. Proof #1: When that massive hurricane was headed directly for Palm Beach, Florida; it magically, somehow stalled out for two days over the Bahamas and then veered northwards up towards Canadian Maritime provinces.

    Can you explain to me how in a purely natural sequences of events, how that monster hurricane could possibly have overcome all previously known patterns to halt its progress for two days…instead of slashing into the single biggest conglomeration of hyper-rich men’s vacation getaway mansions?

    (i.e.: the European parliament wants that all EU countries retire from the Energy Charter Treaty in block to cancel the reform (‘modernisation’) proposed by the EU commission. The delay allowed to gradually eliminate fuel imports/exports has already been reduced from 20-years (sunset clause) to only 10 years. *See 7. in the document Joint Motion for a Resolution below). The electrification of Europe can’t be achieved overnight.

    European Parliament resolution ‘final nail in the coffin’ for Energy Charter Treaty
    https://www.bilaterals.org/?european-parliament-resolution

    The European Parliament has adopted a  resolution  calling on the European Commission to initiate the process toward a coordinated exit of the EU from the Energy Charter Treaty.

    The European Commission must heed this clear signal and that of the eight member states that don’t want to be part of this climate-wrecking agreement any longer. Proposing a full EU withdrawal is truly the only option. The sooner the Commission realises its hands are tied; the sooner European governments will be able to accelerate their climate plans without fear of retribution through the ECT.

    “All governments in favour of withdrawal should pressure the Commission to urgently design a plan to leave the ECT and agree to end fossil fuel protection in the EU for good.”

    “Even if the modernisation of the Energy Charter Treaty leads to some progress, the treaty is still not compatible with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, as it continues to protect investments in fossil and nuclear energies,” said Claude Turmes, the energy minister of Luxembourg.

    The European Commission is a staunch supporter of reform, saying the modernised treaty includes provisions to cease legal protection for new investments in fossil fuels and addresses concerns regarding the right of governments to regulate for environmental and climate purposes.

    Moreover, the EU executive underlined that a 20-year sunset clause would come into effect immediately after countries leave the treaty, meaning that fossil fuel investments will continue enjoying legal protection during that period in any event.

    * See 7. in JOINT MOTION FOR A RESOLUTION on the outcome of the modernisation of the Energy Charter Treaty: https://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/document/RC-9-2022-0498_EN.html) :

    7. Notes that the modernised ECT proposal maintains protection for existing fossil fuel investments for at least 10 years; notes that the 10-year countdown would start from the entry into force of the modernised ECT, a period that would begin on 15 August 2023 if the EU, its Member States and the other contracting parties were to agree to provisionally apply the agreement, and that it would otherwise only start after ratification by three quarters of contracting parties, extending protection for fossil fuel investment for a period close to the 20 years provided for in the ECT sunset clause; notes that the modernised ECT sets a cut-off date of 2040, by which all investments in fossil fuels will no longer be protected in the case of contracting parties opting in to the carve-out; expresses great concern that this time line is at odds with current knowledge on the speed of fossil fuel phase-out needed to limit global warming to 1.5ºC above pre-industrial levels and that it will undermine the EU’s climate objectives; recalls the fact that Parliament had taken the position that the ECT should ‘immediately prohibit fossil fuel investors from suing contracting parties for pursuing policies to phase out fossil fuels in line with their commitments under the Paris Agreement’; notes that the definition of existing investments covers projects in the exploration phase and their potential future exploitation;

    It’s interesting that you mention that.

    I recall reading that Hurricane Katrina in 2005 was heading away from New Orleans, but then radically changed course to eventually strike it.

    I’m also told that HAARP can both :

    1) Be used to change the direction of a hurricane and …
    2) Intensify said hurricane into a more potent storm.

    After the invasion they were given a fake vote to join Russia.

    They were given essentially the same option as Crimea, namely accession to the Russian Federation, or not.

    It was Putin that proclaimed them to be independent countries at the start of the war. Do you deny that?

    Why were they not given a vote on if they wanted to be independent?

    Your allegation of “a fake vote” is profoundly dishonest and speaks to your disapproval of the outcome, not to the truth of the matter.

    Well the UN didn’t recognize it as legitimate. Only 5 countries voted with Russia.

    During the last decade, i’ve noticed that the curve of the jet stream (below) often looks unnatural in that it forms a nearly perfect U, the highest pressures occurring all over Canada, and the lowest ones in the USA, with both sides of the U falling almost perfectly along the East and West coasts of Canada (like two vertical parallel lines going from North to South). As a result, the weather is cold and dry in Canada, and all precipitations fall in the US.

    Its like a gigantic bar magnet whose S pole attracts all precipitations from the N.

    Meanwhile, former Greenpeace co-founder Dr Patrick Moore* with more facts (2 min video) :

    (*Patrick Moore was kicked out of Greenpeace by radical climate extremists that were beholden to the cabal that orchestrated the Anthropogenic Climate hoax.
    Moore is a committed environmentalist but when he started telling the truth about CO2 and how more of it is beneficial for mankind, that didn’t fit in with the alarmist narrative being peddled by climate cultists like Mulga the Mumbler, so he had to go).
