“Your people do not yet feel an impending sense of danger. That worries me. Can’t you see the world is being pulled in an irreversible direction? Meanwhile, people pretend that nothing is going on. I don’t know how to get through to you anymore.” Russian President Vladimir Putin, You Tube, 12 minute video

“The Russians have put their nuclear weapons on high-alert. This is a really significant development.. They are….sending us a very powerful signal as to how seriously they take this crisis. So, if we start winning, and the Russians start losing, you need to understand that what we’re talking about doing here, is backing a nuclear-armed great power –that sees what’s happening as an existential threat—into a corner. This is really dangerous. Go back to the Cuban Missile Crisis. I don’t think that what happened in the Cuban Missile crisis was as threatening to us as this situation is to the Russians. But if you go back and look at what US decision-makers thought at the time, they were scared stiff.” (Mearsheimer: The risks of “backing Russia into a corner“, Twitter minute 1:19)

Putin does not want Washington’s nuclear missiles parked on his western border in the Ukraine. For security reasons, he cannot allow this. He has made this excruciatingly clear over and over again. As he said on December 21, 2021, more than a month before the war began:

“If US and NATO missile systems are deployed in Ukraine, their flight time to Moscow will be only 7–10 minutes, or even five minutes for hypersonic systems.”

No American president would allow a potential adversary to deploy their nuclear missiles to sites along the Mexican-American border. The risks to national security would be far-too great. In fact, Washington would remove those missile sites through force-of-arms without batting an eye. We all know that. So, why isn’t that same standard applied to Russia? Why are policymakers siding with the US and NATO when all the parties involved know what is at stake and know that they have all signed treaties that promise “not to improve their own security at the expense of their neighbors”? These are not just meaningless ‘verbal commitments’ that were made in casual conversations over cocktails; these are promises that have been signed into treaties that the signatories are required to honor. (Note: The United States and every nation in NATO have signed treaties– Istanbul in 1999, and Astana in 2010– that stipulate they cannot improve their own security at the expense of others.) There’s no doubt that NATO expansion enhances the security of Ukraine while weakening the security of Russia. That much is indisputable. And it’s not just a violation of treaties, but a clear provocation tantamount to a declaration of war. Check out this short excerpt from an article by Ray McGovern which shines light on a few of the crucial details that have omitted by the western media:

“President Vladimir Putin has warned repeatedly of the existential threat he believes Russia faces from what Russia calls “offensive strike missiles” like the Tomahawk and, eventually, hypersonic missiles along its western border.

So-called “ABM sites” already emplaced in Romania and about to be completed in Poland can accommodate Tomahawks and hypersonic missiles overnight with the insertion of a computer disk… Putin himself made this crystal clear in an unusual presentation to a small group of Western journalists six years ago. (See the first 10-minutes in this video.)

On December 21, 2021, President Putin told his most senior military leaders:

“It is extremely alarming that elements of the US global defense system are being deployed near Russia. The Mk 41 launchers, which are located in Romania and are to be deployed in Poland, are adapted for launching the Tomahawk strike missiles. If this infrastructure continues to move forward, and if US and NATO missile systems are deployed in Ukraine, their flight time to Moscow will be only 7–10 minutes, or even five minutes for hypersonic systems. This is a huge challenge for us, for our security.”

On December 30, 2021, Biden and Putin talked by phone at Putin’s urgent request. The Kremlin readout stated:

“Joseph Biden emphasized that Russia and the US shared a special responsibility for ensuring stability in Europe and the whole world and that Washington had no intention of deploying offensive strike weapons in Ukraine.” Yuri Ushakov, a top foreign policy adviser to Putin, pointed out that this was also one of the goals Moscow hoped to achieve with its proposals for security guarantees to the US and NATO.

…On February 12, 2022, Ushakov briefed the media on the telephone conversation between Putin and Biden earlier that day.

“The call was as a follow-up of sorts to the … December 30 telephone conversation. … The Russian President made clear that President Biden’s proposals did not really address the central, key elements of Russia’s initiatives either with regards to non-expansion of NATO, or non-deployment of strike weapons systems on Ukrainian territory … To these items, we have received no meaningful response.”

On February 24, 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine. I can see why so many Americans believe the Big Lie that it was “unprovoked,” because they just don’t know.” (“Relentless: JFK on Cuba; Putin on Ukraine”, Ray McGovern, antiwar.com)

What does this mean?

It means Biden backed-away from his original commitment. It means Washington refused to even consider Putin’s modest and legitimate security demands prior to the Russian invasion. It means that Washington knew that the threat of NATO expansion –and particularly the threat of lethal missiles on Russia’s western border– would give Putin NO CHOICE but to respond militarily in order to establish his own security buffer. Putin summed it up like this:

“We are not threatening anyone.… We have made it clear that any further NATO movement to the east is unacceptable. There’s nothing unclear about this. We aren’t deploying our missiles to the border of the United States, but the United States IS deploying their missiles to the porch of our house. Are we asking too much? We’re just asking that they not deploy their attack-systems to our home…. What is so hard to understand about that?” (“Russia’s Putin, The US is parking missiles on the porch of our house”, YouTube, Start at :48 seconds)

Any reasonable person would conclude that Putin had a gun to his head and had to do ‘what any responsible leader would do’ in a similar situation.

But Putin did NOT do ‘what any responsible leader would do’. Instead, he waited. Yes, he delivered his “security demands” publicly and forcefully a number of times, but the threat of Ukrainian membership in NATO was not the tripwire that led to the invasion. What compelled Putin to invade was the bombardment of ethnic Russian civilians in an area of east Ukraine called the Donbas. As we noted in an earlier article,

What Really Happened?

On February 16—a full 8 days before the Russian invasion—the shelling of the Donbas increased dramatically and steadily intensified for the next week “to over 2,000 per day on February 22.” The vast majority of these blasts were logged in daily summaries by observers of the OSCE who were on the frontlines. In other words, the records were kept by trained professionals who collected documented evidence of the Ukrainian Army’s massive bombardment of areas inhabited by their own people. To date, we have not read even one analyst who has challenged this catalogue of documented evidence. Instead, the media simply pretends the proof doesn’t exist. They have simply vanished the shelling from their coverage altogether in order to shape a Washington-centric version of events that completely ignores the historical record.” (“Some of Us Don’t Think the Russian Invasion Was “Aggression”, Unz Review)

As we said, this was the tripwire that triggered the Russian invasion. The “Special Military Operation” was essentially a rescue mission that was closely linked to an urgent national security issue. All the same, the proximate cause of the war, was not NATO enlargement, but the shelling of civilian areas in the Donbas.

This week, a confidential audio recording of former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was released on the internet confirming that our version of events leading up to the Russian invasion are, in fact, accurate. Take a look at this blurb on Maria Tadeo’s Twitter account:

Here’s more from an article at RT:

The former Italian PM reportedly blamed Kiev for inciting conflict with Russia….

Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has reportedly claimed that Kiev triggered a conflict with Russia by reneging on a peace plan for eastern Ukraine (The Minsk Treaty), a tape provided to the media suggests…..Speaking to members of his Forza Italia party on Tuesday, Berlusconi reportedly offered a viewpoint about the origin of the Ukraine crisis that clashed with the NATO-favored narrative of unprovoked Russian aggression against its neighbor.

In the audio clip, Berlusconi can be heard accusing Kiev of failing for years to uphold a peace deal with the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. When Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky came to power in 2019, he “tripled down” on attacking the regions, the politician stated

Donetsk and Lugansk asked for Moscow’s protection, he continued. Russian President Vladimir Putin sent troops into Ukraine…” (“Berlusconi trashes NATO narrative on Ukraine – media“, RT)

Whatever one thinks of Berlusconi, his version of events fits perfectly with the report of intensified shelling produced by the observers of the Organization for the Security and Cooperation in Europe. (OSCE) One can only wonder why the media has failed to investigate these blatantly credible claims that cast considerable doubt on the official version of “Who actually started the war in Ukraine”?

In a recent interview on You Tube, Colonel Douglas MacGregor explained how Putin made every effort to ensure the security of the ethnic Russians living under siege in Ukraine by appealing to the US and EU to address the situation and settle on a way to stop the violence. Putin’s requests, however, fell on deaf ears. Here’s how MacGregor summed it up:

“Putin tried desperately to get the British, the French, the Germans and us to understand that his Russian citizens should be treated equally before the law just like Ukrainian citizens inside this large multi-ethnic state. (But) Zelensky and his friends said ‘No. Either you become what we are or you get out.’ And that resulted in this tragic (Russian) intervention.….

Russia had no interest in ‘conquering Ukraine’ or running into Kiev and ‘making peace at the point of a gun’. But, now, Zelensky has been intransigent and his handlers have been intransigent because we (The US) decided we were going to ‘bleed Russia’. We were going to sanction them and destroy their economy. We were going to kill hundreds of thousands of them and, ultimately, bend Russia to our will and force them to become subjects of the greater global American-dominated financial system.

That hasn’t worked. All of the sanctions have backfired. It is now our European allies who are in desperate trouble. We are in desperate trouble too, only it is not quite as acute as it is in Europe. And, on top of that, we haven’t succeeded in destroying the Russian military at all. It’s held together very, very well and– as I said– right now you have this economy-of-force operation down in the south where there’s a massive buildup of forces from Minsk all the way back into western Russia that will be launched eventually (I suppose) when the ground freezes because that is the best time to operate in that kind of terrain.

Earlier I told you what this is really about: There’s this attempt to destroy Russia. We’ve decided to made it this blood-enemy that has to be eliminated because it refuses to march down the path that Europe has.” (“Massive Buildup”, Colonel Douglas MacGregor”, You Tube, 3 minutes)

Truer words were never spoken: The US decided to make Russia its blood-enemy because it refuses to click-its-heels and do as it’s told. Russia refuses to be another sniveling flunky in the exalted “Rules-based System”.

So, now we’re in a full-blown ground war with Russia; a war that was concocted, instigated, funded, guided, and micromanaged by Washington. A war that—by any objective standard—is Washington’s war as much as Iraq and Afghanistan were Washington’s wars. The difference this time is that our enemy can not only defend himself, but has the wherewithal to reduce the continental United States to smoldering heap of rubble. We are reminded of a comment Putin made recently that seems to have slipped-by the media unnoticed. He said:

“We will defend our land with all the forces and resources we have, and we will do everything we can to ensure the safety of our people.”

We hope that someone on the Biden team is smart enough to figure out what that means.

    But the Russians are commanded by General McClellans. Timid. Cautious. Can’t get their ass forward. A First Guards Tank Army but it’s nowhere on site. Got a lot of excuses about why the hell they can’t roll forward.

    It’s not about Putin.

    No Russian leader can ignore or forget WWII and its aftermath: (1) over 25 million Russians killed; (2) an equal number of widows, or women who could never marry; (3) over 50 million children left fatherless, or never fathered; and (4) 100 million or more grieving parents and siblings. Those historical facts will never allow any Russian leader to accept Washington’s nuclear missiles parked on Russia’s western border.

    Totally made in USA who ran its armed gang to the front doorstep of Russia. The Zelensky dictatorship has been drafting its subjects at gunpoint and recklessly sending them to get killed in useless offensives, all at the behest of their NATO bosses. Zelensky himself has babbled fantasies about impossible victories making one think he’s unhinged, on drugs or otherwise not dealing with reality. The US itself has now itself become divorced from reality, thinking it can roll the dice and take chances with nuclear war. The US government believes they are the owners of everyone in the US and can expend their lives as they wish, tens of millions being mere expendables. The voters thought they were voting for representatives, not owners. Their regard for human life can be seen in the callous way they feed the hapless Ukrainians into a meat grinder. It’s a multi-polar world out there, others can fight back now, deal with it, being the world’s loan shark can’t work forever.

    These morons don’t seem to realize that Putin is talking about nuking … London, Paris, and New York. We are truly led by fools.

    Just lately, President Putin hasn’t hardly even mentioned nukes, beyond the implication that Russia has them, they are one of many available options, and Russia will employ them if necessary to defend Russia and her interests.

    IMO your statement is nevertheless accurate.

    I’d suggest that our problem is even worse than being led by “fools” – at least fools have the excuse that they don’t understand the consequences of their actions. By contrast, it seems to me that the genocidal arseholes who’ve hijacked the entirety of the Western world know exactly what they’re doing, and what will result from their actions – but they just don’t care. They’re not fools, they’re paid stooges working for a bunch of psycopaths who are calling the shots from behind the curtain, safely out of sight and out of harm’s way.

    Meanwhile, President Putin appears to be reticent to “take off the gloves”, perhaps because he and much of his administration live in the real world and have empathy for the real people on both sides of the conflict – sentiments that don’t exist anywhere in the thoroughly degenerate Western political class.

    None of what Mr. Whitney has narrated is false or inaccurate in the slightest degree. Everything that he has said is true. Yet you have chosen to accuse him of falsely promoting President Putin’s interests while having an undisclosed relationship with President Putin.

    Quite an extreme posture to take in the absence of any tangible substantiation – worthy, one might suppose, of the highly coveted “Troll” tag. Congratulations.

    And as for this – “… the worlds most wanted terrorist.” – not a single solitary dimension of that idiotic accusation carries the slightest shred of credibility or truth. If we chose to search for any terrorist, let alone “the world’s most wanted”, then we’d have far better prospects of finding them in abundance entrenched throughout each and every American administration going back over the last century or more.

    And if that’s not enough for you, then try casting your net wider, over the NATO lapdogs spread across Europe who enthusiastically join in the American Empire’s adventures at every opportunity.

    You repeat the propaganda of most rabid Putin’s lapdogs!

    Propaganda? Unlike the Western-controlled BS machine masquerading as mainstream mass media, the only messages coming out of Russia are desperate appeals for sanity and respect for human rights (both completely absent across the totality of the collapsing Western Empire).

    BTW, be careful what you wish for – Martin Armstrong has repeatedly warned in clear language that if President Putin is removed, then he will be replaced with Russian hardliners who will have no hesitation in reducing Europe and North America to radioactive wastelands.

    Propaganda? Just try calling their bluff – but you better have your suntan lotion on hand.

    Putin should go over the heads of the Western MSM by broadcasting a short address to all peoples of Europe in German which Putin appears to speak tolerably well.

    The mere fact that Putin would be speaking directly to Europeans in German rather than in Russian or English should attract a good deal of international attention. The MSM would obviously find it much harder to hide the import of such a message from German speakers than if the speech were in Russian. German is also more widely known in other Western countries as a second language than is Russian.

    As well, the use of German rather than English or Russian should serve to evoke distant memories of cultural commonality among fellow continental Europeans.

    The wording of an address would need to be crafted carefully to be (1) reasonably resistant to misquotation; and (2) redundant and robust such that even short snippets point back to the overall idea. A few striking images, slogans and other rhetorical devices could help circumvent inevitable attempts by the MSM to cover up the basic message.

    The Kremlin should immediately set up three separate teams to develop and refine a powerful yet simple message to reach Western ears and hearts before Halloween.

    1st, Russia doesn’t threaten, or so we hear.
    2nd, they are trying to keep any violence to a minimum [consistent with what ‘comes over the fence’ from the Ukro-nasties].
    3rd, there’s a long way to go by ‘tightening the screws’ = ratcheting the pain-dial up. For example, all the ‘unfriendly to Russia’ nations, as defined by any who supply deadly weapons to the Ukros thus threatening Russian lives, could be declared in violation of any contracts that they may have made with Russia – then as being thus in breach, Russia would be mad not to cease all deliveries (fuel = gas, oil etc., say) to such ‘unfriendlies.’ Perhaps someone can supply an appropriate quote?

    To the alert audiences observing the current globalist clown show it is clear that Washington is the actor driving the current narrative. To the majority of western observers it is Russia who can solve the problem because, according to the zombified Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin, “leaving Ukraine is ‘only way out’ of conflict”.

    But both of these view points represent only the superficial narrative presented to the sleeping global masses. If a person is alter enough and digs a little deeper, it is clear that all these current narratives are joined to together at the hip. The Zero Carbon narrative, the Covid narrative, the Energy Crisis narrative, and the civil war in Ukraine are all part of the “great reset” which we are assured will lead directly to “build back better”.

    “Ordo ab Chao” is known by Masons as the motto of the 33rd degree. Albert Pike wrote about 3 world wars in his letter to Giuseppe Mazzini in 1872. One world government has been the goal of the Masons and the Illuminati for over 2 centuries now. To try to deny that there is some of “hidden hand” guiding current events just as they guided the great wars of the last centuries is one of the most abject signs of “denialism” in existence today. This is also closely related to the rise of science as a new religion, where people deny centuries of proof of the existence of a conspiracy in the name of science.

    In this multigenerational trajectory to Fabian Socialism the life time actors have played a profound role. We can see them at the top of the pyramid today in famous “literati” like Kissinger, Schwab, Soros or even Charles III. Of course there are also life time actors lower down the pyramid who have pledged fealty and are acting outside of their own self interest, the interest of their “religion”, or the interest of their Nation State. Netanyahu, Trump, Gabbard, even Zelensky, and many others are likely lifetime actors at this level.

    It is my suspicion that Putin, and likely Lavrov, are such lifetime actors. They have been selected and put into these positions at an early age. In fact, many of them are actually bred for these roles. It is known as “the breeding programs” where certain families and blood lines are bred for these roles. Jews are famous for their inbreeding, which is likely related to their positions high up the masonic circles. The Rothschild family is renowned for their interbreeding.

    We don’t know how genetically inter-related all these life time actors are because a lot of effort is put into keeping us in the dark. It would be of great use if we could do genetic testing of all the WEF “Future Global Leaders” to determine how distant they are from each other genetically.

    He should threaten to nuke Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The war would instantly vanish.

    I think they realise it quite well, they just can’t admit it. Accusing Putin of wanting to nuke Ukraine is good for PR. Admitting the risk of escalation that can lead to the nuking of Western cities, bad for PR. Besides, their goal is to bleed Russia, not to escalate to nuclear war. The fact that they don’t see how one can lead to another is just more evidence that they are complete morons. It wouldn’t be the first time that they prove incapable of predicting the consequences of their actions.

    Further elaborated by the International Court at the Hague in its 2010 decree on Kosovo:
    – People’s right to self-determination SUPERSEDES territorial integrity and ‘sovereign borders’
    – Unilateral declarations of independence are not illegal under international law … and those declaring independence can request outside military intervention, and merger with a neighbouring or other country

    Kosovo had rights to secede from Serbia-Yugoslavia, and the right to merge with Albania if it wished. Donbass East Ukraine has full legal right to secede from Kiev & join Russia.

    But also – it was illegal for Russia to have crushed Chechen rebels. And it is illegal for Beijing to seek to take over Taiwain against the will of Taiwanese. Also illegal for Beijing to crush Hong Kong, Tibet, Xinjiang Uighurs. Illegal for Washington DC to crush USA secessionists. Illegal for Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria to crush separatist Kurds. Etc.

    Loud mouthed, ill-educated and thin-skinned White Americans are the foremost and most dedicated scum that humanity ever had the misfortune to produce.

    Modern America is today’s incarnation of Satan’s first project, the debauched ancient Babylon. Americans started building their modern version of the Tower of Babel in 1913 when they signed over their right to be God’s creations to the Jesuits/Ashkenazis/Masons (JAMs) via their giving away of the “Federal Reserve” in 1912.

    [MORE]

    The JAMs are attempting to pave the way for their master Lucifer to oust God from his dominance over creation’s domain. And Americans, through ill-education, ignorance, cowardice and loud-mouthed arrogance, have been and are complicit in every blood-letting and debauched move that the JAMs have made towards achieving this.

    There is absolutely no insult, no vile debauchery, no torture or torment of White American children that White American adults will not accept from their JAM masters.

    White American children have been recorded in public actually rubbing the crotches of male American perverts wearing dresses. White American children are on videotape in public places with male dress-wearing perverts in front of them with their dresses lifted and their pubic areas shoved into the children’s faces.

    And this happens while White American parents and adults are nearby and looking on as if it’s the most normal thing in the world. If a 5-year-old White American child was to fellate a dress wearing negro peadophile live on a public stage, the White American audience would actually applaud.

    It’s not enough for White Americans to keep their child-abuse Satanic debauchery in their own country, they spend billions of dollars exporting and promoting it abroad.

    The only upside to loser White America is that the JAMs are having enormous success in maiming and murdering White Americans with cocktails of poisonous pharmaceuticals.

    Since Rockefeller started with his fake Spanish Flu and his bacteria laden fake vaccine that was supposed to protect against it, stupid Americans can’t get his poisonous concoctions injected into themselves and their slackjawed children quick enough.

    The JAMs are also having enormous success replacing White Americans with open borders. Even female rats fight for and defend their lairs. But not White Americans.

    There’s nothing to say about White Americans, except that they are the vilest, most cowardly scum that this planet ever evolved. It’s to be applauded that Lucifer’s JAMs now have White Americans thrown in prison and tortured. Loser White Americans have earned and deserve this.

    White Americans were gifted a virgin unpopulated continent that teemed with resources.
    ■ They then sat slackjawed whilst the JAMs flooded it with animal/human hybrid negros.
    ■ And sat slackjawed whilst the JAMs flooded their bodies with poisonous pharmaceuticals.
    ■ And sat slackjawed whilst the JAMs took control of the money creation.
    ■ And sit slackjawed whilst the JAMs now flood it with inbred animal/human hybrid Latinos, Somalians, blacks, Indians, Pakis and Arabs.

    White American dispositions:
    》No humiliation they won’t accept and endure.
    》No insult they won’t accept.
    》No paedophile that’s too vile to fondle their children.
    》No pharmaceuticals that are too noxious to have injected into their veins.

    White Americans are no-good low IQ self-important cowards. They are wasters and pollutants to God’s universe. And they have more human blood on their hands than any other race of humans in history.

    The world will actually be a much better place when the hordes presently entering North America are guarding White Americans in concentration camps and having them put down in gas chambers.

    I’ll personally find this very pleasing considering the idiotic way that White Americans promoted the very obvious fake Holocaust that the JAMs have used to make billion of dollars from.

    The Ashkenazis will find it hilarious when they turn the Holocaust lie that White Americans so assiduously promoted on their behalf into a gas-chamber reality that they inflict upon White Americans.

    While the JAM psychopaths can’t experience empathy, they can experience a wry sense of ironic humour.

    In case this is not a rhetorical question:
    – Double standards, probably the only consistent Western Value(TM) you are likely to encounter.
    – The strong do what they will, the weak suffer what they must. The US elites still think of their country as powerful and the Russian federation as weak. Perversely, the very reasonableness of the Russian stance appears to have the effect of enticing some decision-makers in the US to poke the Russians just a bit more.
    – The very nature of the US foreign policy establishment mitigates against deviating from the party line. Supporting the status quo seems to be without (personal) risk, not to do so will be short term professional suicide.

    JFK could not accept Soviet nukes in Cuba. He was right. Why is it so hard for you to see the parallel to Ukraine/Russia?

    The historic parallel is even worse than that – the Soviet placement of nukes in Cuba was a direct response to the prior siting of strategic nukes by the US in Turkey aimed squarely at Moscow.

    In other words – contrary to the popular mythos – the USA was actually the aggressor in the Cuban missile crisis, and they’re the aggressors again in the present day. The Soviet posture was defensive back then, just as the Russian posture is defensive today. The world turns, but it seems that nothing has really changed.

    If we wanted a full-on repeat of the 1962 fiasco, the Russians would now base a shitload of hypersonic nukes in Venezuela or some other country up close and personal to the US’ borders in response to unprovoked NATO attempts to once again do that very thing to Russia. The Russians probably don’t need to go that far this time around, though, because they already have overwhelming strategic superiority with global reach against which the USA and NATO allegedly have no defenses or countermeasures.

    Your suggestion has a quantum of logic to it, but on reflection is a rather futile gesture.

    Insurance vendors base their business models on calculations of probability, but chances are if your house is totalled by a nuke, then you’re unlikely to be around to collect any insurance, and even if you are, it’s highly doubtful doubtful that insurers will be sufficiently solvent or even existent to pay out any claims, nor will the civil infrastructure exist to process those or any other transactions.

    Best to face up to it – if you don’t already have a well-stocked bunker with the finest claret and filet mignon like the uber-rich, then when the nukes fly, you’re on our own baby! Meanwhile, any household nuke insurance is akin to pissing your money down the toilet – Saul will be more than happy to take your premium payments, but there’s no way you’re ever going to see it again.

This term also is utilized by Chabad to describe their outreach programs. I think this is conclusive proof of Putin’s connections to both Zionist Israel and to Chabad. And thus I propose that we view this war in Ukraine as a struggle between Jewish neocon and financial elites in the West vs Jewish oligarchs in Russia, Ukraine, and Israel. I include Ukraine because I suspect the Jewish oligarchs there are in cahoots with their brethren in Russia and are profiting handsomely from the conflict. How much American military aid money are these folks skimming by outright theft and selling the equipment to third parties?

In fact the Truman administration was hurriedly constructing ~400 nuclear weapons in hopes of pre-emptively nuking the Soviet Union when the Russians derailed those plans in 1948 by producing their own nuclear weapons. This same aggressive mentality, featuring the same advocates such as Curtis LeMay, were what JFK had to battle during the Cuban Missile Crisis. They were constantly undermining him and hoping to foment what they very well knew might become a nuclear war with the Soviet Union.

    The very purpose of the US Navy “boomer fleet” of nuclear weapon submarines is really not to deter, but rather to present a truly unpredictable first strike option. They can hit Moscow from the Baltic or Black Seas with no warning. That is their feature.

    The Russians are keenly aware of this history and of the US military doctrines of the past even if Americans remain mostly ignorant of our own history. That is why this fight is, for them, “existential”, and why Americans have very little inkling about what this means and why.

    The use of the word “Nazi” is proper because the Nazification of Ukraine was accomplished by Zionists/CIA’s efforts. Don’t you remember that the profitable extraction schema of holobiz is based on the “nazi & hitler” memes? Let the American Zionists enjoy the association with Ukrainian Nazis.

    Another appropriate name is NATZO/MATZO. The Jewish community worldwide was too conscious about its own privileges and “sufferings” to pay any attention to the Nuland-Kagan’s putsch in Kiev, accomplished in cordial collaboration of US Zionists with self-proclaimed Ukrainian Nazis.

    Carl Gesrchman (NED) was for the Nazification of Ukraine. Knesset sent Israeli rifles to Banderiets. Sullivan and Blinken have been working hard to provide Nazified Ukraine with money and weaponry. The Jewish Fuehrer Zelensky received unlimited credit from Jewish Usurers and the most enthusiastic support from the Jewish Lobby. American Zionists even produced apologetic writings for Stepan Bandera and his followers. Everything goes when worldwide Jewish dominance is at stake.

    The head of the poisonous Parasite is in Finances. Humanity at large needs to denude the Financial Squid and remove the cancerous growth of the fascist Parasite. Unfortunately, the Parasite is OK with destroying the planet if money and power are taken away from it.

    the neo-Nazi militias who are an integral part of the Kiev government, which came to power one year ago in a Nazi-driven coup d’état. Those Nazis are acting as protected assets of the Obama Administration, specifically Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland.

    These neo-Nazi forces have officially rejected the ceasefire. The battalions they control in southeastern Ukraine are not fully under the control of the central government in Kiev, but are armed by Ukraine’s “oligarchs”—big businessmen such as Dnepropetrovsk Governor Ihor Kolomoysky. They are the offshoot of the Bandera movement, which was fascist in its own right even before World War II, then welcomed Hitler’s invasion of Ukraine and carried out atrocities against the people of Ukraine and Poland that should have landed them in the dock at the Nuremberg war crimes tribunal. Instead, they were recruited by British and American intelligence services for the Cold War against the Soviet Union. The neo-Nazi representatives within the government in Kiev are out to sabotage any peace agreement.

    “Top US officials meet with Ukrainian fascist leader Andriy Parubiy, co-founder of Nazi-style party Svoboda [formerly Socialist-National Party]:
    Antony Blinken, with neocon warmonger Victoria Nuland behind him, threatened nuclear war with Russia. Both these Jewish collaborators with Ukrainian Nazis are from “holobiz-survivors” families.

The figure of 27 million Soviet war death must therefore be taken as the minimum figure for military deaths, as opposed to the German figure of 2,416,784 killed and missing, this latter category including all prisoners of war, some of whom eventually returned alive from the Gulag.”

    A State can have at root two policies, war or peace. The policy in Washington is war. This is understood by everyone who reads this website, and by maybe 5% of all Americans.

    In 1775 the policy of the yankee patriots was war. The same in 1860. Peace was not possible. They were going to destroy the South. Period. Wilson, same, time of Roosevelt same. Daddy Bush 1989 same, Baby Bush 2001 same. The policy was war. So war we had.

    In the time of Biden, the policy again became war. The problem was, Russia is in the way of the enemy. Russia is blocking the war geograhically, militarily, economically, and diplomatically. So they decided on small war, which they hope will result in a regime change in Moscow.

    Xi Jinping is well advised. He understands the war will be coming to him. Like the West, he considers Russia a used up has been country, and I don’t believe the new Politburo will commit to rescue Russia in their humiliating war effort.

    Later on, we will see what China can do. They don’t give a rat’s ass about Russia or about Putin’s bloviating. It is all weakness in the Chinese eye. The NATO war is succeeding, and they know it.

    I can see China taking most of Siberia, as this war plays out. In fact, I predict it. But win or lose. this war is against China. Russia just happens to be in the way.

(But) Zelensky and his friends said ‘No. Either you become what we are or you get out.’ And that resulted in this tragic (Russian) intervention.….

    Hitler tried the same with respect to the Germans who were stranded in the Polish Corridor through the diktats of the Treaty of Versailles. As hard as he tried to invoke the League of Nations to force the Polish ultra nationalists to stop the persecution and the discrimination against the German minorities, as well as asking for the right of the residents of Danzig to vote for self determination, his appeals fell on deaf ears just as Putin’s call for the implementation of the Minsk Agreement was totally ignored.

    It is the same scenario only the roles of the protagonists have changed.

    Would that be enough to open the eyes of the Germans to their worthiness and that of Russians to the Anglo Zionist empire. I guess not.

    Sincerely hope you are wrong but the possibility is no doubt there as has been shown time and again. Unfortunately we always tend to realize the truth far too long later. A sort of ‘strategy of tension’ is definitely being employed against the public mind. Worrying about nuclear war, economic collapse, social upheaval etc etc. Using fear and uncertainty about the future creating instability in people wherein the very gro9und underneath them feels in flux. Then, once the fear is cranked up to the level of personal exhaustion, they can introduce the solutions which will be gladly accepted. Anyone still pointing out the BS at that point will be shouted down/shut down. Gov won’t have to do it, the public themselves will do it because they will want to have their comfort back again and anyone pointing out the harsh truth will be seen as an impediment to that.

They have bought into the entirety of the international banking cartel. The Bandera types have existed in Ukraine since the days of Taras Shevchenko, and to be blunt, a shitload of them came to Canada in the 19 and early 20th Century. Where I live, they are the only ones with a “closed” credit union, meaning you have to prove you are a hunky in order to join. Ultra nationalistic to be sure, but hardly National Socialist. Our adoption of official multiculturalism has them out in force during this shitshow.
    I object to the use of “Nazi” because it plays into the Soviet/Russian lie, being pushed by Putin, of “The Great Patriotic War”. Yes, Russia is under threat today, but ironically, it is Russia that is where Germany was in the 1930s – freeing itself from the vampire squid and protecting ethnic Russians in other countries.

    We can follow it up with a big screen Flat Screen TV showing a collage of videos of local news saying “its a threat to our democracy” …. and the Simpsons predictions… and clips from THEY LIVE …. and dozens of others.

    Who has the screenplay? Lets get this into the hands of all the high school drama clubs.

    [Another war made by Jews, over a country that the USAmerika has no interest.]

    You are correct that the Jews have prime interests in this war, but I am surprised to see the people who come here care ONLY interested in the ‘white Christians’ and fail to understand that the interest of white Christians are not necessarily different from the interest of other groups knowing that the zionism is the enemy of all. We live on this planet and we should work together to destroy the common enemy, the zionist expansionist plan, Oded Yinon, where has waged so many wars since 9/11 to create FAKE ‘ware on terror’ to have pretext to invade and kill millions of Muslims. Why do the writers on this site are only interested on the ‘white christian’ power like Russia asking people to support her invasion of Ukraine, since it was made in Washington, but not about all these savage wars made in WASHINGTON by the Neocons and others who are complicit in these wars for the interest of Israel where has killed MILLIONS of MUSLIMS?
    Are these people have no knowledge of these wars and the history of the region? Don’t they know what is going on? Why don’t they take a stand against the common enemy, ISRAEL, when it comes to the Middle east? Iran and Russia are working together in the region and Iran should be supported when you support Russia, because the enemy is the same, Israel.
    Why Mike Whitney has not produced one damn essay about the terrorist activities’s of Israel and Jewish mafia against Iran and other countries in the region? Why no one is talking about Israel’s proxy, the Kurdish terrorist groups who act like ISIS to create chaos? Israel and Mosad’s plan is to make another war in the Middle East using American and western treasures, like in Ukraine, to erect imaginary states like ‘kurdistan’, ‘balochistan’ and other ethnic states as Israel’s proxy. This is the West project as well. Why no one EXPOSES it and CONDEMNS it? We will sent them into their graves. Israel and US are the source of tensions all over the world. Israel and Mosad have created many bases in North of Iraq and train the kurdish terrorist groups pushing them into Iran to assassinate and brings terrorism to create chaos in Iran and neighboring countries to partition Iran like Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya? Why all these writers at this site are concerned ONLY about the white christian Russia? Russia and Iran are working together for a long time, but they have different relations with the zionist state where Russia is an ally? NOT Iran. We read in the news:

    [For the first time in a months, Israel carried out a missile attack against Syria, targeting the capital city of Damascus and suburbs in the southern region near the border.]

    Why no one talk about these bombing and killing by the mafia to create imaginary states for its interests. I think this is the interest of the WEST as well. That’s why you are shut up. Mike Whitney does give a shit about others so the people who visit this site. We never allow you to create imaginary states and will destroy those who betray us.

    Yes, certainly. I was on an official visit to Israel when I was serving as minister during the last Berlusconi government. It was a very significant mission, with the moving visit to Yad Vashem—a conscience-shaking experience. I will certainly return to Israel, hopefully soon. It was something I was considering due to my role as president of the European Conservative Party, of which Likud friends are also members.

    Q: What is the importance of a Jewish state to you?

    Israel represents the only fully-fledged democracy in the broader Middle East and we defend without any reservations its right to exist and live in security. I believe that the existence of the State of Israel is vital and Fratelli d’Italia will make every effort to invest in greater cooperation between our countries. After all, this has been the friendly attitude that the Italian center-right has always held towards Israel whenever it has been in government.

    This link and its contents are misleading. Algeria has put in a firm order, Vietnam is giving serious consideration, as is South Korea. India withdrew solely because of the political decision to produce its homegrown aircraft.

    This aircraft and its further technical development is superior to the flying, “delicate” Failure-35. Scott Ritter and other seasoned military analysts-who are not receiving bribes or fees from the Military Industrial Complex-frankly call out this black hole money disposal a “piece of junk”. The stealth skin delaminates, the cockpit bubble delaminates. It has-of all the stupid ideas-a touch screen for pilot inputs. Delicate and fails at a rate of 20%.

    [MORE]

    Your friend and humble narrator is getting pretty sick and tired of continuing problems with the F-35, the super-expensive wonder jet that might be ready for a war against China or Russia by the turn of the millennium.

    Bloomberg’s Tony Capaccio recently reported that the 25mm gun on the Air Force’s F-35 variant STILL doesn’t f**king work. This is not a new problem. It’s one of the many issues that has plagued the F-35 program for years – and the defense industry seems in no rush to get things fixed.

    In fact, both reports from 2018 and 2019 by Defense Department research, development, test, and evaluation describe the accuracy of the F-35A’s gun as “unacceptable.”

    Both reports use the exact same words to describe the problem: “Investigations into the gun mounts of the F-35A revealed misalignments that result in muzzle alignment errors. As a result, the true alignment of each F-35A gun is not known, so the program is considering options to re-boresight and correct gun alignments.”

    In other words, the Pentagon just copied and pasted the same wording into its latest report.

    The Pentagon recently abandoned efforts to fix the F-35’s long-plagued information technology backbone, known as ALIS (Autonomic Logistics Information System). Now Prime contractor Lockheed Martin will replace ALIS with a new system: Operational Data Integrated Network, or ODIN – the Pentagon’s latest tribute to the Norse god of war.

    The 2019 research, development, test, and evaluation report described ALIS as, “Inefficient and cumbersome to use, still requires the use of numerous workarounds, retains problems with data accuracy and integrity, and requires excessive time from support personnel.”

    “As a result, it does not efficiently enable sortie generation and aircraft availability as intended,” the report says.

    Translation: The damn thing either doesn’t work or provides misleading data so often that F-35s can’t fly.

    For years, ALIS has been the source of many, many ulcers for F-35 maintainers. In fact, then-Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson joked in February 2019, “I can guarantee that no Air Force maintainer will ever name their daughter Alice.”

    Your friendly Pentagon correspondent is not technically savvy enough to explain why ALIS never worked right. Suffice to say the U.S. government has never been good when it comes to information technology. (Remember the disastrous debut of Healthcare.gov?)

    A Su-57 can accelerate to supersonic speed in dry thrust and can maintain this speed for the duration of the flight.
    “It will be traveling at 1.6 Mach, which means around 2,600 km/h, depending on the nature of the locations being flown over. The engine will also significantly improve the Su-57’s low signature thanks to the use of new composite materials,” says Professor Vadim Kozyulin of the Academy of Military Sciences.
    The Sukhoi company finished developing the airborne radar and also sorted out the remaining intricacies involved in the design of the airframe, which, according to the expert, is the most up-to-date among all existing fifth-generation planes.
    The most up-to-date airplane must be equipped with the most state-of-the-art weapons. Thus, in addition to air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles and a 30-mm cannon, the plane will also get a whole range of bombs, which will not be suspended under the wings, but concealed inside the fuselage to minimize its signature on enemy radars.
    Moreover, during the Syrian campaign, Russian troops tested some of the armaments that will be installed on fifth-generation fighter planes. Thus, the OFZAB-500 high-explosive fragmentation incendiary aerial bomb and the ODAB-500PMV fuel-air explosive aerial bomb are currently being considered for the Su-57.
    At the same time, tests of all versions of armaments for the Su-57 are proceeding and these “hawks”’ that are going to be armed to the teeth with the most up-to-date weaponry will enter the Russian Air Force very soon. So far, the Defense Ministry has ordered a batch of 76 Su-57s.
    “For stealth technology, we have to pay for the deterioration of the flight and tactical properties of the aircraft with a catastrophic increase in its cost. The same F-35 pulls in $100-120 million! And the Russian Su-57 is worth about $35-40 million,” the expert notes.
    The shortcomings of the F-35 in comparison with the Su-57 are weaker weapons, limited range, subsonic cruising speed and, worst of all – if detected, it is doomed, because it cannot evade an attack. This gives the best tactical opportunities for the main American jet’s rival – the Su-57.

    It should not need mentioning that the maintenance costs of the F-35 are off the charts, requiring overhauls at shorter flight hour intervals then the Su 57.

    Respected independent analysts have reported over the years that American pilots that have flown Russian and American fighters overall rate American fighter jets as more “delicate”, compared to the Russian jets as more sturdy, built like “trucks”.

    As for the F-35s export volume, that can be imputed and circumstantially be attributed to graft, payoffs, bullying, and other coercive tactics by the hybrid derivative of the Cosa Nostra and Murder, Inc., entity known as the United States of America.

    “does anyone here know who owns Vanguard?”

    — The usual suspects – the bankers. They own the collective west, and they have designed the ongoing war in Ukraine. As Smedley Butler wrote, “All wars are bankers’ wars.” The ongoing WWIII is no exception. https://www.organicconsumers.org/news/who-owns-world-blackrock-and-vanguard

    Citibank, ING and T. Rowe Price are owned by larger investment firms such as Northern Trust, Capital Group, 3G Capital and KKR. Those investors in turn are owned by even larger investment firms, like Goldman Sachs and Wellington Market, which are owned by larger firms yet, such as Berkshire Hathaway and StateStreet. At the top of the pyramid, we find Vanguard and Blackrock.

    The power of these two companies [Vanguard and Blackrock] is something we can barely imagine… Not only are they the largest institutional investors of every major company on earth, they also own the other institutional investors of those companies, giving them a complete monopoly.

    …data from Bloomberg shows that by 2028, Vanguard and BlackRock are expected to collectively manage $20 trillion-worth of investments. In the process, they will own almost everything on planet Earth.

    Vanguard has a unique structure that blocks us from seeing who the actual shareholders are. … In 2016, Oxfam reported that the combined wealth of the richest 1% in the world was equal to the wealth of the remaining 99%. In 2018, it was reported that the world’s richest people get 82% of all the money earned around the world in 2017.

    We can assume that the owners of Vanguard are among the 0.001% richest people on the planet. According to Forbes, there were 2,075 billionaires in the world as of March 2020. Oxfam data shows that two-thirds of billionaires obtained their fortunes via inheritance, monopoly and/or cronyism.

    This means that Vanguard is in the hands of the richest families on earth… Among them we find the Rothschilds, the DuPont family, the Rockefellers, the Bush family and the Morgan family, just to name a few. Many belong to royal bloodlines and are the founders of our central banking system, the United Nations and just about every industry on the planet.

    Catherine Austin Fitts believes it’s the central bankers that are at the heart of the global takeover we’re currently seeing.

    What we’ve seen is a tremendous effort to bankrupt the population and the governments so that it’s much easier for the central bankers to take control. … this is a financial coup d’etat.

    They, Financial Squid and supranational fascist corporations, own all large financial institutions and such miserable entities as the UN. Quite possibly, they ordered Assange to be captured and kept in prison.

    These psychopaths in charge are devoid of humanness. They are a malignancy on the body of humanity, a metastatic cancer. The observed total ruin of ethics and morals among the observable “deciders” of the collective west can be traced to the financial coup d’etat allowing for buying all kinds of puppets to implement the most atrocious programs, such as the 9/11, the destruction of Iraq, the Nazification of Ukraine, the terrorist attack on NS 1 & NS 2. The inbred and spiritually degraded Owners of the collective west do not care about humanity. They are a malignant growth devouring our civilization.

    Our planet and its human inhabitants have got a hard lesson: Don’t allow private banks to print money. Otherwise, the private banks grow into a massive bloody Parasite looting and raping countries and destroying natural habitats, and arranging mass slaughter of humans of all ages to protect the Parasite’s privileges.

    July 3, 1933. Over 100,000 Jews gather at Soldier Field in Chicago to celebrate 3,000 years of Jewish history and nationhood by worshipping a fire-breathing statue of Moloch and feeding it children which we can only hope were not real.

    The event was called “The Romance of a People.” It was organized by the Zionist Organization of America, sponsored by the Jewish Agency for Palestine, and produced by Meyer Weisgal, with help from Rabbi Solomon Goldman as well as Maurice Samuel, the author of “You Gentiles.” One of the big speakers at the event was none other than Chaim Weismann, first president of Israel and the guy who alongside Lionel Walter Rothschild authored the Balfour Declaration, which was the agreement that dragged the US into WW1 in exchange for the British stealing Palestine from Ottoman Turkey and allowing Jews to settle there.

    Iran has the same problem. Israel was behind the protests in Iran to destabilize and partition the country. The Zionist mass murderers for the past 44 years are training and funding the ‘minorities’ in Iran. The kurds are trained in the northern part of Iraq by Mosad, then send them into Iran for act of terrorism. Iran has strong evidence for its claims. The Kurdish terrorists tried to take over a city just a month ago during the protest in Tehran bringing arms from Iraq into Iran, but the Iranian security forces managed to bring order fast and took full control over the city. Iran had to be firmed with these terrorists and attacked their position in the northern Iraq where Mosad has many basis illegally.

    I don’t understand why people do not take the zionist plot against Iran seriously, but are very concerned about Russia, the biggest country in the world, territorial integrity. The apartheid entity is trying to get ‘bigger’ on Iran’s expense. She will take this wish into its grave. These khazaris must pack and go where they came from. They have NO connection with the region.
    The protest against Iran in Berlin over the weekend was ORGANIZED by Israel lobby in Canada and US, let by Irwin Cotler a zionist terrorist, assisted by the Iranian traitors such as Kaveh Shahrooz, a servant of Israel Lobby. Cotler, on behalf of Israel, is working towards destabilization and partition of Iran. Russia and Iran are concerned about their territorial integrity and will not allow the zionists implement ‘Oded Yinon’ in the region. The should fuck off from the region now.

    Einsatzgruppen C went through the South and got stalled at Stalingrad.

    Einsatzgruppen B went through Ukraine heading to Moscow but were surprised. The Ukrainians offered to do the work for B and indeed they did —not only executing the above but adding Poles as well.

    NOW — B was offloading much of its work to the Bandera/Chomiak team and they were good until they realized –the Nazi Germans had no use for Slavs –any of them –but were using them and when their job was over –why they would be the next group to be liquidated.

The EIC of London it had nominally merged with bore a flag with a Union Jack in its quarter. The Jewish-Indian company proper had thrice as many ships and gun boats on the world seas though not as many state of the art battleships. EIC was a completely autonomous territory, where English Common Law did not apply.

    That is an old trick that the Kremlin plays from time to time. The referendum mentioned there took place on 17 March 1991 throughout the USSR. The question asked was not “Do you wish to preserve the USSR?” In effect it asked: “Do you support a new entity being established on the territory of the old USSR that combines a group of sovereign states.” People had still not envisioned the complete collapse of the USSR, as it was organised by Moscow. It was confusing and contradictory and was undertaken before the April 91 meeting that resolved to dismantle the USSR, and showed that people wanted sovereignty. It was confusing to Ukrainians who wanted sovereignty and nothing to do with other sovereign nations coming out of the old USSR. Later you had the 19-22 August coup in Moscow and 24 August declaration of Ukrainian independence. That declaration was then ratified by the 1 December 1991 referendum of Ukrainians alone.

    Kudos for having the honesty to state the uncomfortable truth as you understand it. The entire subject of the genesis of Exercise WWII is contentious, but as we know, history is written by the victors.

    I can’t claim to know the truth about the 1930’s & 1940’s, but do have a certain non-conformist sympathy for Adolf Hitler considering his economic achievements and his personal passion for the good of the German people. Perhaps Germany and the Soviet Union both were just pawns in a larger game.

    Meanwhile, I also have much sympathy for present-day Russia as it faces off against what seem to me to be essentially the same psycopaths responsible for all that mayhem seven decades previous. If one had to pick sides, I’m inclined to go with the mainly Christian society, traditional agriculture and thriving industrial base rather than with the genocidal Satanists who want to destroy their own industries, poison all their livestock, exterminate 90% of humanity and feed whoever manages to survive on bugs and maggots.

    (Excerpts, emphasis added)

    ”Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is illegal and brutal, but Ottawa helped provoke it by pushing to expand NATO, helping overthrow elected President Viktor Yanukovich in 2014 and through a military training mission that undermined the Minsk II peace accord. For seven years Canada engaged in a low-level proxy war with Russia, which Moscow drastically expanded on February 24. Rather than peace in Ukraine, Ottawa is prioritizing weakening Russia.

    Commentators and politicians who oppose negotiations while denying the geopolitical and arms industry forces driving policy are carrying water for the military industrial complex and an aggressive NATO military alliance. Born in a bid to crush the Western European left, prop up European colonial rule and bring it under Washington’s geopolitical umbrella, NATO has launched wars in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Libya.

    Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and the North American arms industry have long been the chief beneficiaries of NATO expansion. The war in Ukraine has been a boon to US arms companies’ Canadian subsidiaries and homegrown Canadian military suppliers such as Bombardier and CAE. The military is pushing industry to go on “war footing” and Global Affairs Canada representatives are speaking at forums promoting “Defence sector opportunities” in Ukraine.

    Resistance is essential. Three weeks ago, 150 marched against NATO in Montréal. Last Friday I interrupted Minister Pablo Rodriguez’ press conference in Montréal to ask about their proxy war and why Ottawa never calls for negotiations while activist Tamara Lorincz protested Justin Trudeau in Waterloo about why “Canada is prolonging environmentally destructive war in Ukraine.”

    I sure hope that her message resonates, but most of the American public has been reduced to braindead zombies by constant propaganda demonizing Russia. In spite of her popularity in antiwar circles, she only won 2% of the primary vote when she ran for president in 2020. Tulsi made a huge mistake, which many supporters have yet to forgive her for, when she endorsed deep-stater war hawk Biden for pres. when she dropped out of the race. She put party above principle.

    – The “Ukrainian nation” was invented by the Austrians in the course of

    never properly were part of any damn “Ukraine”.
    – Stepan was a psycho but he realized the Jew was the problem; it was the US

    in Munich, for use against the (((mudderland))) (it was only after Stalin´s
    death and their gradual squeezing from the corridors of power the Jews
    switched their “allegiance” to the US, and Stepan became expendable).
    – I have heard a few too many “former Russian soldiers” lately to value their

    I reiterate my premise there is nothing originary “Ukrainian” about the current

    I am sure China is far more advanced in producing semiconductor chips for consumer electronics than Russia, but Russia does not need to be able to produce Apple phones to have a superior military than the West/NATO. Russia has already demonstrated how extremely precise its missiles are in Ukraine. Even back a few years ago when Russia launched a volley of Kaliber missiles from its Caspian Sea fleet and precisely hit ISIS targets in Syria, West/NATO were astonished.

    Americans/West always look down on Russians based on the former’s superior consumer goods.
    But Russia and before Russia Soviet Union have produced and produce weapons for war, not to suck up $ billions on shiny toys. Consumer goods have always taken a back seat to Russian military, because of the almost constant threat of land invasions.

    People forget that Soviet Union was the 1st in the world to launch the Robotic Exploration of space (the 1970 Lunokhod 1). [Not until Mars Pathfinder’s deployment of the “Sojourner” Rover in 1997 was another remote-controlled vehicle put on an extraterrestrial body. ] (Wiki)

    Even during ww2, the Nazi Tiger Tank was an engineering marvel: it could hit enemy tanks with its superb 88 cannon at distances that neither US, UK, nor USSR could come close. But USSR produced the very capable war-machine T-34 by the 10s of 1,000s. Germans were able to produce only a few thousand Tigers, because it was so complicated.

    Ironically, during WW2, US did exactly the same as USSR: produced basic, robust tanks, trucks, airplanes, Liberty ships by the 10s of 1,000s.

    Now most US war-toys are designed to soak up as much taxpayers funds as possible for as long as possible. Nobody cares if they work or not. (Only the US nuclear triad is robust and superb: for obvious reasons)

    Bourla was awarded the prize, along with the $1 million cash prize, which he says he will use to help establish a Holocaust museum in Thessaloniki. The foundation also noted “Dr. Bourla’s pride in his Jewish identity and heritage, his commitment to Jewish values and his support for the State of Israel.” President Isaac Herzog will present Bourla with the $1 million prize at a ceremony in Israel.

    The reality:

    “Big Pharma EVISCERATED By Member Of European Parliament:”

    “Pfizer / European commission vaccine contracts, over 100 blanked out pages:”

    Burla is a major criminal of our times. Albert Bourla is a Jewish veterinarian and the chairman and chief executive officer of Pfizer. “Bourla is a director on multiple boards such as Pfizer Inc., The Pfizer Foundation, PhRMA, and Catalyst. He is also the vice president of the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations, a trustee of the United States Council for International Business, and a member of the Business Roundtable and the Business Council.”

    NATO is not fighting in Ukraine. Russia is losing because their country has been hollowed out by corruption of which Putin is the biggest beneficiary.

    This article doesn’t tell the whole story at all. The real story is the “Greater Israel Project”. TruNews exposed this a month or two ago and showed that Henry Kissinger and his Zionist cabal have a new project. They cannot get land fast enough from stealing it from their neighbors next to Israhell, so instead they went to plan 2. The Greater Israel Project seeks to provide a vast homeland for the Ashkenazi converts to Talmudic Kabbalistic Judiasm by displacing native Christian Ukrainians via a proxy war that is being promulgated from the Zionists in Israel along with their crypto Jewish friend Putin and their openly gay Jewish friend in Ukraine Zelensky. This is typical Zionist deception. Their real intent is to clear Ukraine so they can steal their property and settle Ashkenazis in the land and develop their new homeland, essentially admitting temporary defeat in Israhell. That is my firm conviction. Prove me wrong.

    It was made in Brussels, not Washington or Moscow.

  226. “What compelled Putin to invade was the bombardment of ethnic Russian civilians in an area of east Ukraine called the Donbas. ”

    This is just a feel good pretext for NPC consumption. The real reason was that Zelensky threathened Putin to his face just a day or two before the invasion he was going to have nukes and his own short range ballistic missiles Real Soon Now. With this, he revealed the final piece of the American game plan – to instigate a short nuclear war between Russia and its non-NATO puppet Ukraine. This would enable America to destroy Russia decisively without risk to itself. The ukrainians would of course be spent as collateral damage in this process.

    You’re exactly right Greg.

    No one will be proving you wrong – least of all the sayan disinfo peddler ‘Quarter-Mustard’.

    No one seems to remember that in the early 1990s Gorbachev agreed to the proposal of Bush I and thus NATO (basically, The West) that in exchange for Gorbachev and the USSR not interfering with Warsaw Pact nations (Poland, Czechs, Hungary, Romania etc al) breaking away from the Soviets, The West would NOT advance NATO membership eastward one iota.

    Of course that was violated by the late 1990s just before (and probably the cause of) the election of Putin to President of Russia. Can any fair minded person blame Putin and Russians for not taking any Western offers seriously? Putin realizes Western promises will shortly be broken.

    Sorry for the delayed reply. Ethnic consciousness is the awareness that they are one people, and one people not just by a shared language and culture, but also by shared ancestry and myths; such awareness should make them distinguish themselves readily from other people who do not share the same ideas, even if they have a shared ancestry. White European countries somewhat consciously built such consciousness in the 18th and 19th century; they called it nationalism. Then the wider identity of Whiteness, strengthened by Christianity, awakened. The role of Christianity in forging the common identity of Europeans is often ignored. If the Europeans of those days followed different religions, such a broad “racial” awareness may not have set in; for example some East Europeans, who are physically Europeans but follow Islam, joined the wave of European identity very late (Albanians never joined). Had Russia been Muslim instead of Christian, then the White identity may have had a very tough time to emerge. Yes, at present the European countries have lost their ethnic consciousness, almost all voluntarily.

    Russia is under threat today, but ironically, it is Russia that is where Germany was in the 1930s – freeing itself from the vampire squid and protecting ethnic Russians in other countries.

    The problem with Russia is that by freeing itself from one kind of vampires it becomes prey to an other. An excellent expose of this curious fenomenon is disccused in Manfred Sapper’s “Diffuse militancy in Russia: a legacy of militarized socialism?”

    “Militarization of society and culture have been a key characteristic of the Soviet era. Deeply rooted in the Civil war period, militarism got reinforced and consolidated with the Great Patriotic War, which largely succeeded in legitimising military values and creating consensus on their importance both in society and in State institutions. Perestroika and the fall of the Soviet Union are a testimony to the consensus’ crisis, with the Afghan war as a main element of the de-legitimacy of militarism. Thus, the 1990s are an attempt for society and statehood to bypass militarism; but institutional change does not mean the end of it. Post-Soviet period is characterized by a double and contradictory evolution : on one hand, an increasing rejection of the military ; on the other hand, a widespread use of (military) violence, on a daily basis as well as on a large scale.”
