Look at this map of Ukraine.

Can you see what’s going on? The Russians are creating a buffer zone along their western perimeter.

Why are they doing that? What benefit do they derive from a buffer zone?

Well, a buffer zone creates a distance between Russia and Ukraine which Putin thinks is necessary since Ukraine is threatening to join NATO. So, he’s creating his own DMZ on his western flank.

But what does that prove?

It proves that we’ve been lied to from the very beginning. Putin was not planning to reconstruct the Soviet Empire like the media told us. He did not want to seize the Capitol, Kiev, and he did not want to conquer the entire Ukrainian landmass. That was all baloney.

What he wanted to do, is what he has done.

Don’t take my word for it, look at the map. You don’t need CNN or Rachel Maddow to tell you what you can see with your own two eyes. This is the reality ‘on the ground’.

This is a buffer zone. It creates a distance between Russia and Ukraine, it protects the ethnic Russians in the Donbass region, and it establishes a landbridge to Crimea where Russia’s vital deep-water port of Sevastopol is located. In other words, it achieves what Putin wanted to achieve from the very beginning, that is, enhanced security along his western border.

What we are seeing is the basic parameters of Russia’s “Special Military Operation”. Yes, many people will prefer to call it a “war”, but the term is not nearly as precise as “Special Military Operation”.

Why?

Because “Special Military Operation” indicates that the main objective is to save the lives of the ethnic Russians who had been under constant bombardment for the last 8 years and, also, to create a security zone that prevents a hostile NATO army and its missile system from being deployed to Russia’s border. These are the goals of the “Special Military Operation”; to “demiliterize” and “denazify” the area under Russia’s control. Get it?

Will the “Special Military Operation” go beyond the Donbass to Kiev and cities in the west?

Probably, not. Going beyond the Donbass would likely involve a complete mobilization of men and resources which has not yet taken place in Russia. By not mobilizing, Putin is signaling to the west that he will limit his operation to the area on the map. (With some slight expansion) Putin is indicating that his main concern is security, and since his concerns were casually brushed aside by Biden and Zelensky, he took matters into his own hands. In other words, he imposed his own settlement.

Okay, but if these are the parameters of the Special Military Operation, then what are the chances of a wider war?

That depends on Biden. If Washington continues on the path of escalation –by sending weapons systems that can strike targets in Russia– then Putin will respond. We should know that by now. Putin is not going to back down no matter what. If Washington wants to up-the-ante, then they should prepare for an equal response. That’s the way it’s going to work. For now, the “Special Military Operation” is just a “Special Military Operation”. But when it becomes a war, then all bets are off. Then we will see a full mobilisation, a complete rupture in US-Russo relations, and a halt to all hydrocarbon flows from east to west.

Do you think Europe and the United States are prepared for that? Do you think the EU can replace the 25% of the oil and 40% of all the natural gas it presently imports from Russia? Do you have a wind-powered car that will get you to work on time or a factory that will run on solar power? Do you have a plan for heating your house with hydrogen or perhaps a battery from an old Prius?

No, you don’t, and neither does Europe. Europe runs on fossil fuels. America runs on fossil fuels And the more fossil fuel that is consumed, the more the economy grows. The less fossil fuel is consumed, the more the economy shrinks. Are you prepared for life in a shrinking economy with high unemployment, skyrocketing inflation, unending recession, and deepening social malaise brought on by your government’s misguided desire to “stick it to Putin”?

That’s a bad choice, isn’t it? Especially when a face-saving deal can be made at anytime. In fact, Biden could stop the fighting tomorrow if he extended the hand of friendship to Putin and declared that, yes, Ukraine will accept neutrality til the end of time and NATO expansion will stop ASAP.

That’s all it would take. Just extend the olive branch and Putin will ‘call off the dogs’. Guaranteed.

That’s what this guy would have done. Remember him? Remember how bad things were when Trump was in office and gas was 2 bucks a gallon, and everyone had a job, and there was no inflation, and violent crime was under control?

Listen to what Trump had to say about Russia:

“Well, I hope we do have good relations with Russia. I say it loud and clear and I’ve been saying it for years. I think it’s a good thing if we have a great relations with Russia. That’s very important. And, I believe, some day that will happen. It’s a big country, it’s a nuclear country, it’s a country we should get along with, and I think we will eventually get along with Russia.”

He’s right, isn’t he? We need to get along with Russia and put an end to the fighting before thesemorons drag us into World War 3.

  1. nothing Trump says

    while running for Prez – as he is, yet again –

    should be taken seriously. He is a 100%

    Zionist globohomo tool.

  2. Notsofast says:

    ….many people will prefer to call it a war….. neither ukraine nor russia have declared war, so no it’s not a war.

  3. Mulegino1 says:

    Getting along with Russia (and China) should be a primary foreign policy and economic objective of the United States. A peaceful and cooperative, mutually beneficial, relationship between the three could initiate an age of unprecedented prosperity and well being.

    Unfortunately, the pseudo-elites of the collective west now appear to constitute a suicide or collective possession cult. The US-NATO-Zionist bloc’s desire to maintain and even increase its own hegemony at the expense of the vast majority of the world’s population.

    All that the collective west stands for now is social revolution-transmania, transhumanism, abortion, identity politics-exporting debt, usurious predatory finance and the Malthusian religion of “Greenism.” To demoniacs such as the principals at the WEF forum, geopolitics and economics is a zero sum game, and they would gladly see the world go down in flames and famine rather than concede their defeat.

  4. Trump said he wanted good relations, then he signed every sanctions bill that came to his desk. He never deviated from the neocon consensus in action, just in mere words. And seeing how spineless he was towards his own generals, I doubt he would have handled this conflict any different than Biden’s puppeteers are.

  5. It doesn’t matter if Trump meant what he said or not. It remains that what he said was right. The author was just making a point. Our entire government is under regulatory capture and presidents are no exception. We’re a third world country now, and it’s going to get worse as long as this kind of thing continues. So, we are fucked as far as I can see.

    It’s difficult to get along with someone that you look down on. All previous “great” western powers have done it – after all, how can Slavs be equal with the “great” west – and all those uppity “great” western empires were wrong.

    So is the current reincarnation/zombiefication of a “great” western power. They look down on Russia and they are also wrong about it. Don’t worry momma Russia, you’ll come on top this time too. History is on your side.

    After all, the Russian empire can be considered to have already lasted at least 500 years – from Ivan the terrible to Putin the wonderful.

    The American “empire” even if it’s carbon dated as an empire since its beginning – which technically is not true, it wasn’t an empire from the get go, it will still be only little bit more than 300 years old.

    There is no snowball chance in hell that they will last another 200 years to catch up to the longevity of the Russian empire.

    It has been the case in the past too, whenever a “great” western empire gets tired of empiring – it takes on Russia – who regularly put them out of their misery. Same thing will happen this time. The only difference this time will be, that after the current western “empire” is gone – there will be no new one to replace it.

    The problem with Trump is that he didn’t realize that the President doesn’t actually call the shots and control things.

    In the 2016 election Trump did an end run around the political election system and the Deep State/globalist cabal went DEFCON 1 and pulled out all stops and attacked him scorched earth from 360° 24/7.

    And the attacks came not only from without but from within. Trump was stabbed in the back by his own party and his own cabinet and his own military and his own intelligence community.

    For political and personal survival Trump capitulated to the neocons, which was his only real option. It didn’t help much be he ended up surviving.

    The best thing to come out of Trump’s presidency was that we go to see the curtain fall and the masks drop and see the whole political system is rigged.

    Documents Reveal Hundreds of Russian Troops Broke Ranks Over Ukraine Orders
    June 1, 2022

    Hundreds of Russian soldiers have escaped the fighting in Ukraine or refused to take part during the early stages of the war, according to military decrees viewed by The Wall Street Journal as well as accused soldiers and lawyers defending them.

    Military analysts and Ukrainian officials say there have been many more.

    Russia’s army stumbled badly early in its invasion of Ukraine and suffered thousands of casualties and the loss of an estimated quarter of its deployed military hardware, a senior Pentagon official said in April. Desertions and insubordination among soldiers, Interior Ministry troops and members of the National Guard are compounding the problem.

    The desertions place Russian authorities in a bind over how to punish those who refuse to serve without drawing more attention to the issue, defense experts said. The Russian military is short on manpower and seeking recruits to help turn the tide in Ukraine.

    Penalties have so far been largely limited to formal dismissals from service. Because Russia hasn’t declared war on Ukraine, there also are few legal grounds for criminal charges against those who refuse to serve abroad, according to a lawyer and former military prosecutor’s assistant who is defending soldiers fired for insubordination.

    Biden doesn’t represent the opinion and interests of his peer group of white men 25-80…It’s a first in US history. Indeed he’s antithetical to these interests. It is deeply shameful.

  12. Trump was possibly the last civilian or man-on-the-street to get elected in the US. The system clearly rejected him. Despite media fear porn about a racist dictatorship, he was actually a hostage-president, who was kept away from the center of power.

    The system seems to take no chances now, as Biden is treated similarly, he’s a symbolic face of government, obviously not in a mental state where he could be trusted with making life-or-death decisions under pressure. Biden was a lifelong member of the club, but still not trusted by the elite, he was chosen because he was considered a safe choice. They don’t seem to mind him running his mouth now and then, because the obedient media won’t ask questions about him.

    Trump was jewed up as much as Biden.

    FTN did a deep dive on Trump and it was very ugly.

    The nose used Trump to run out the clock on white people.

    In hindsight, it’s hard to believe he meant ANYTHING he said because he did virtually nothing but fuck up. He hired people (mostly jews) who were utterly opposed to the promises he made during his run.

    His SC choices turned out to be losers. He couldn’t get the wall built, and the cost would have been chump change compared to the billions sent to Ukraine.

    He sucked his followers into an FBI trap on Jan.6th, and to date has done nothing to help those poor bastards rotting in jail for doing nothing besides triggering some crazy paranoid jews.

    Then, in the finals, he pardoned jew criminals and rappers.

    If Trump was ever serious about anything he said, then he’s one of the biggest fuckups the world has ever seen.

    Why would I vote for him again? Why would I vote for ANY Republican shithead, knowing they will NEVER do anything for our people?

    No, this nightmare has to end. With as hard a failure and a bloody nose to the US empire – e.a the establishment drawing the strings – as possible. And we’re not there yet.

    China needs to stop trading with them and the whole house of cards of the “New World Order” has to collapse. Only if the likes of Bill Gates (e.a. billionaires and oligarchs) and their lackeys have had their wings cut and been driven out of town will there be ANY chance for a better world. Not as long as they remain. They all have to go. Putin threw the Russian oligarchs out and/or took their power away, China put a lid on them and the US and Europe must do it too.

    About those 8 years…how’s the investigation coming to demonstrate the hard facts of the matter to the international community? something about jewish neonazis and khazarians and then there’ the secret govt. biolab thing we haven’t heard much about recently.

  22. The Russians are creating a buffer zone along their western perimeter.

    It would only be a true buffer zone if it becomes completely uninhabited, like the roughly one thousand square miles around the site of the Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986. Russia is in the process of thoroughly destroying this entire area, so hardly anybody would be keen to even return permanently and rebuild there afterwards, an expensive process that would require many decades of effort.

    Russia has been sacrificing much military hardware and human cannon fodder, in addition to shattering its international reputation for many years, even under new leadersip, for the dubious benefit of possibly keeping NATO surveillance drones from flying over this region some day in the distant future, as if though there weren’t already plenty of space satellites orbiting farther above.

    He did not want to seize the Capitol, Kiev…

    In the meantime, most observers know that this was the primary objective because it was where the initial thrust immediately focused upon at the start, since it obviously would have been much easier to control the Ukrainian forces by staging a very violent military coup d’êtat, with multiple deaths, and then likely installing the disgraced former leader Yanukovych, who fled in 2014, just hours after signing an agreement with the parliamentary opposition leaders, which had been brokered by the European Union.

    This apparent goal, of controlling Kiev and ousting the government, explains why Russian propagandists were so keen on repeatedly spreading the fake narrative, about an alleged “coup” orchestrated by Victoria Nuland eight years earlier, prior the invasion. From this false perception as an artificial frame of reference, the intended military regime change operation (“de-nazification“) might then have been more easily explained to the public, through the controlled media, as rectifying a prior injustice.

    We all know that this objective, of taking control of the capital city, had been pursued through Russian attacks for weeks but was ultimately thwarted by Ukrainian resistance, so it is peculiar that the author would nonetheless be lying about this so brazenly. (Perhaps there are even more naïve and credulous readers here than I imagined.) One may wonder whether he received complimentary tickets to attend the extravagant military parade at the Kremlin last month for his propaganda services on behalf of Putin.

  23. Russia isn’t creating a buffer zone, it’s returning its own land and its people back under its wing. There will be no buffer zone.

    All that land will become a part of Russia again.

    Yes it will, at least to Odessa along the Dnipro River. These areas are dominantly ethnic Russian and have a heavy nazi presence.

    I selfishly want Russia to take all of Odessa, Zaporozhye and Kharkiv and I think that Russia wants more than just a Donbass buffer, possibly including a corridor north of Kiev from Belarus to Kharkiv. Dnipropetrovsk includes the major iron mining city of Krivoy Rog so may as well complete the circle.

    If that’s the Russians’ intention, they’re fools. There are basically three peoples in Ukraine, the bellicose Galician Ukrainian nazi nutjobs in the Northwest, the bilingual and mostly peaceful Ukrainians in the center and the Russians in the East and South. The Russians’ goal in Ukraine must be to separate the wheat from the chaff and that can only be achieved by materialising the Subtelny line on the borders of Galicia. Let the Galicians have their nazi Banderastan but denazify and pacify the rest of Ukraine. It’s not a question of choice, it’s an imperative if they don’t want to have a problem at their borders for decades to come.

    The US is a 3rd world country with nuclear weapons and maniacs running foreign policy. Needless to say, the US is a danger to the rest of the world.

    There is no engine of growth in the US large enough to carry the country forward. It will take years to reestablish manufacturing and a decade at least to reform education to turn out people that actually know something besides all the social nonsense that pervades their minds now.

    The existing engineers and scientists should be cajoled to not retire and help to transition the country to produce things the rest of the world wants to purchase to aid a transition to a more peaceful country.

    Like the cops that stood around in Uvalde, Trump stood around and did nothing positive for years; a real disappointment. If he wants a second shot at the presidency, he better make up his mind that he’s going to be a bull in a china shop and break things left and right.

    He needs to cancel the CIA, NSA, and a few other entities and reign in the military by cancelling all development programs for new weapons systems and start downsizing it to eliminate all foreign bases. He needs to bark orders and mean it since that’s what a chief executive is for. All orders carried out in 90 days, no exceptions. The US could use a “peace dividend” to help move the country forward.

    I’ve said for years that the US is a soft military dictatorship. It may turn into a hard dictatorship in the near future. Gun control is a euphemism for confiscation or restrictions on ammo and new weapons purchases.

    The people of the country need to throw sand into the gears of war. It’s the people that need to demand changes by withholding their labor till they get what they want. The political class isn’t worth spit. There needs to be a 2nd American Revolution, but hopefully not a bloody one. Some of the already known personalities need to come forward with demands that public opinion can rally around and with or without the sham legal process, things need to change drastically and immediately.

    Agree that Biden is merely “the symbolic face of government”. His ” appointment ” to become President of the USA reminds me of the type of individual who became President of the USSR during the last 20 + years of its existence. The Politburo members didn’t want one of their strongest and most competent members to become President because, assuming power, that type of individual might purge the group of the incompetent, weak, and corrupt members. Therefore the USSR had a series of Presidents who were drunks, fools, and near death. Of course those appointments hastened the demise of the Evil Empire. Putin is despised in the Western world because he is strong and competent. The Western world governments much prefer a return of a Yeltsin type President of the Russian Federation. Easy to manipulate and take advantage of. Russia’s massive natural assets are just too good to leave alone.

    Trump is a zionist illiterate traitor who did everything for MONEY. He came in with over \$400M in debt and left the office with billions of dollars in his pocket to be invested in the Real Estate.
    Those who have not understood him yet, are either foolish or opportunists, where in any case should not be trusted.
    Putin did everything to be accepted as ‘partner’ by the west, but the West REFUSED him. We don’t forget when Putin was dancing with the criminal George Bush, playing and dancing with war criminals Tony Blair, George Bush where Tony was playing guitar and Vladimir and George were dancing together in the former PM of Italy Silvio Berlusconi’s mansion discussing where to invade while Putin is on board with Bush and Blair after the false flag terrorist act of 9/11.
    And we never forget what the traitor Trump said and did when he was in office like assassination and sale of the office to get \$Billions of dollars from the Butcher MBS and Jewish whore house and casino owner, Sheldon Adelson, to free the criminal Jews who were convicted of their crimes given 20 years in Prison in exchange for millions of dollars. In other countries, the ASSASSINS and traitors would have been arrested and executed.
    You should be very DESPERATE to give a zionist mafia member, Trump, as an EXAMPLE. Someone is a fool, not us.
    Trump, the illiterate traitor thinks Israel has a RIGHT to control the US Congress and he thinks Israel, a foreign country. At present time, Israel controls US congress and Trump thinks this is the way SHOULD be. Putin also likes Trump because thinks Russia will be left alone under a CLOWN. Both Trump and Putin believe that “Israel has a right to defend itself.” and this is the common denominator between a clown and a believer.

The days of dressing up in suits and addressing the person one is speaking to as the honorable representative from X or Mr. President, etc are over. Sadly, no such person exists to wrest control from the cabal. Instead, the deep state will come out into the open.

    What is rapidly approaching will, in the end, terminate the Fed Gov. The debt and mismanagement is of a magnitude that the Fed Gov is already mortally wounded just hasn’t expired yet.

All those military bases and weapons depots aren’t all over the country for nothing. Covid lockdowns and related measures have conditioned people to eat shit and like it.

    Months ago, I said that what the controllers want is a return to feudalism with them in charge. Things have deteriorated world wide since then, but especially in the “west”, to the point feudalism can’t be afforded any longer when the SHTF. Over time, conditions will work up toward feudalism where people work and the brutes take their cut without standing over them.

    What’s likely to happen is people being told to work for subsistence with police and military brutes holding the whip. The US currency or other forms of payment assume there’s some wealth to tap – there isn’t any, all is debt. All that’s left is raw materials and existing infrastructure that hopefully survives the initial riots.

    It’s the destruction of “money” that means no form of payment is immediately available. Bullshit currency has been a substitute for money since 1971 and soon those green pieces of paper will be seen as inadequate for commerce or payment for services. Forced use of the currency will hold for a while, but there’s no value in it so the force will eventually fail.

The Sochi Olympics showed there was potential for expansion into Russia. Yes, Trump is a globalist, but he is from a competing branch than those in control now. The sanctions started after the Russiagate hoax had been perpetrated. Had he not signed them, the “Putin’s puppet” media narrative would have gone into hyper-drive. There is a lot not to like about Trump, but what he campaigned on clearly struck a chord with the American public tired of the standard narrative of the duopoly.

    The over three centuries presence of Petrinism in Russia’s political and social sphere has to be sorted out.

    The good elements- scientific, technological, industrial improvements- can be retained, without the Russian people being enslaved to them. But that will be a slow process.

    On the other hand, the rejection of the nihilist, social revolutionary counter-culture of the collective west is proceeding quite rapidly during this world historical decoupling.

    Russia is still in recovery mode after more than three centuries of the west’s attempts at reigning that nation and culture in and destroying it. But they have the chronic vigor and power of assimilation to survive and thrive.

    Haxo, Yes I generally agree and you were earlier than most to see through the farce that is Trump. Of course he lies: What else would the ‘God-Emperor of Grift’ do? The pardons on his way out are really quite telling – literally as outrageous and corrupt as those of Cheetohead’s old pal Bill Clinton. The one theory of Trump I’ve seen which might offer something of an explanation of his behavior is that he’s deeply indebted to the Kushner crime family – hence the pardons of so many names on ‘Swindler’s List’ (plus a few violent negroes tossed in).

    It hardly matters what the reasons are now. Zion Don utterly failed to keep his 2016 promises and tossed his supporters beneath the Church of Woke bus at every opportunity (Jan. 6, 2021 being the ultimate toss). The Orange hot-air balloon could have theoretically pulled the military out of Trashcanistan, vetoed all of the military aid being sent to Tricky-Dicky Piano-man and his masters in Cash-Money Laundry 404 and stopped the Russian sanctions escalator starting on January 21, 2017. Obviously impressing his Talmudic Satanist Son-in-Law and friends was more important.

    So here we are with the Shitpants Joey broken ventriloquist-dummy who can’t even read the teleprompter correctly as the official face of Clownworld while the real clowns run things in the background (Soros, Satan-Klaus, et al) at full speed towards WW III.

    Are you sore that your surviving Zionazi Azov buddies are going to go on trial in the DNR and face the death penalty?

    You obviously don’t understand the dynamics of history, and you have a very poor perception of its fluidity and non-linearity. Although I am loath to quote Lenin, he was correct when he observed that there are decades when nothing happens, and weeks in which decades happen. The Russian SMO has brought about a tectonic shift in the global order. The world’s center of gravity (and vitality) is shifting precipitously towards Eurasia and away from the dying collective west.

    The most destructive period for Russia was after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The Yeltsin years are considered as on a par with the “Great Patriotic War” as one of the worst periods in Russian history- in both an economic and cultural sense. Fortunately, the Russian soul- the principle of unity of the Russian nation- has the chronic vigor and the power of assimilation which Cardinal Newman attributed to Christianity during its formative centuries. The collective west- currently in the culturally and spiritually fatal grip of globohomo, transmania, and the culture of death- does not.

    Stalin, despite his harshness, kept the Trotskyites and social revolutionaries from destroying the traditional Russian society and the traditional family structure. In a providential way, Stalin’s “socialism in one state” saved Russia for its destined role as the final bulwark of Christianity and obstacle to globohomo, neoliberalism and the rest of the demonic and toxic counter-culture of the west. This was one of the root causes of the Cold War, and the social revolutionary war against the historical Russian nation was embraced wholeheartedly by the Atlanticist-Zionist bloc.

    It helped to revive the idea of “the West” as a cultural identity which no longer includes Russia (if it ever did, from the Euro perspective).

    It looks like it will help to expand NATO with new members – something that was absolutely not on the cards before; neither Sweden or Finland had any desire to give up their neutrality until Russia scared the shit out of them.

    It might also help to wean Europe from its ill-advised dependence on Russian energy.

    you do realize that that Joseph Stalin disempowered the the church and attempted to destroy it completely. That only changed during WWII when he opted to use the organization for his war effort. Divorce soared after the revolution as the reigns for divorce were given to the state and away from the church.

    Despite whatever has taken place with the church and the polity after the Soviets’ retract — divorce remains high in fact rests as one of the highest in all of Europe. Though I have not checked since the invasion if marriages have increased and divorces decreased.

    *Data is most recent available per country. 2018-China; 2019-Cuba; all others 2020-21

    Maldives – 5.52
    Kazakhstan – 4.6
    Russia – 3.9
    Belarus (tie) – 3.7
    Belgium (tie) – 3.7

    Denmark (tie) – 2.7
    Latvia (tie) – 2.7
    Lithuania (tie) – 2.7
    United States (tie) – 2.7
    According to data from the United Nations and other sources, the country with the highest divorce rate in the world in 2020 was the Maldives, which recorded 2984 divorces against a population of 540,544, resulting in a divorce rate of 5.52 per 1000 people. This is actually a notable step down from the country’s widely publicized rate of 10.97 in 2002, which earned the country a Guinness World Record.

    Why are divorces so frequent in the Maldives? One common explanation is that the island nation’s citizens frown upon physical relations outside of marriage, but both marriages and divorces are quite easy to obtain, so they marry quickly and divorce with minimal complication if the relationship fails. What’s more, a cultural shift is currently taking place in the Maldives, with women becoming more empowered and more able to fend for themselves financially, enabling them to leave marriages that aren’t working.

    The former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan endured the second-highest divorce rate in the world in 2020, with 4.6 divorces for every 1000 people. Close behind are Russia (3.9), Belgium (3.7), and Belarus (3.7). The United States lands in a four-way tie for spots 9-12 on the list, with an annual divorce rate of 2.7 per 1000 people. In the U.S., Nevada has the highest divorce rate of any state at 14%.

    The effect of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic on divorce rates
    The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020-21 had a remarkable impact on nearly every aspect of everyday life, including rates of marriage and divorce. Overall, marriage rates dropped significantly in 2020, largely due to pandemic-related lockdowns and restrictions on public gatherings. What’s more, divorce rates also dropped significantly, from .2 to .4 points in most cases, in nearly every country in the world.

    For example, Slovenia’s divorce rate dropped from 1.2 in 2019 to .8 in 2020. Similarly, Hungary dropped from 1.8 to 1.5, Seychelles went from 1.9 to 1.7, and the Dominican Republic plummeted from 2.5 to 1.2. Oddly, Denmark, considered one of the top 10 countries to live in, reversed the trend and saw its divorce rate leap from 1.8 to 2.7 during the 2020 pandemic.

    Top 12 Countries with the Lowest Divorce Rates (annually, per 1000 people)*
    *Data is most recent available per country, typically between 2017-2020.

    Sri Lanka – .15
    Guatemala (tie) – .20
    Vietnam (tie) – .20
    Saint Vincent and the Grenadines – .40
    Peru – .50
    South Africa – .60
    Chile (tie) – .70
    Colombia (tie) – .70
    Ireland (tie) – .70
    Malta (tie) – .70
    Panama (tie) – .70
    Qatar (tie) – .70
    Saint Lucia (tie) – .70
    United Arab Emirates (tie) – .70
    Venezuela (tie) – .70
    On the other side of the coin, several nations have quite low divorce rates. Based upon available data, the country with the lowest divorce rate in the world is Sri Lanka, with a divorce rate of 0.15 divorces per 1,000 residents. Vietnam and Guatemala have the next lowest rate at 0.2 divorces per every 1,000 residents. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Peru, and South Africa rank 4th through 6th, then a nine-way tie at .70/1000 creates a logjam that soaks up spots 7-15.

    It should be noted that a low divorce rate does not necessarily mean that a country’s citizens have blissful, thriving marriages. In some countries, divorces may be more difficult to legally obtain, or wives may be unable to leave a bad marriage because they fear for their safety, or for their children’s safety, or because they lack the financial wherewithal (or societal opportunity) to support the family on their own. In fact, if one takes the top 6 countries with the lowest divorce rates and tracks their scores on the United Nations’ 2019 Gender Inequality Index (GII), they rank as follows:

    Gender Inequality Index (GNI) of top 6 countries with the lowest divorce rates (out of 162 countries, lower GNI is better):
    Sri Lanka – .401 (90th place)
    Guatemala – .479 (119th place)
    Vietnam – .296 (65th place)
    Saint Vincent and the Grenadines – not rated
    Peru – .395 (87th place)
    South Africa – .406 (93rd place)
    By comparison, all but three of the top 13 countries with the highest divorce rates placed within the top 50 in terms of gender equality. In light of these data, it is important to resist drawing conclusions about married life in a given country based upon its divorce rate alone.

    Divorce rate and its connection to marriage rate
    In fact, divorce rate on its own cannot even give a clear idea of how frequent divorces are in a given country. This is because the divorce rate is a measure of divorces as a percentage of the total population, not in relation to the total number of marriages. Why does this matter? Because the United States’ 2019’s rate of 2.7 new divorces per 1000 people would be quite impressive if all 1000 of those people were married, but shockingly worrisome if only 50 out of 1000 were married. For that reason, divorce rates are often viewed alongside a country’s overall marriage rate. They may even be combined to produce a rough marriage/divorce ratio or percentage.

    For example, if one matches the United States’ 2019’s rate of 2.7 new divorces per 1000 people to the number of marriages that took place in 2019—6.1 per 1000 people—it works out to one new divorce for every 2.26 new marriages, a divorce percentage of just over 44%. These are arguably more insightful and relatable numbers than “2.7 divorces per 1000 people.” Of course, even this calculation is not entirely precise—divorce rates should ideally be compared to the marriage rates from the year each dissolving marriage was initially created, not the current year. However, it is nonetheless a useful (and much easier to compute) ballpark estimate for times when more granular data is unavailable.

    He put Bolton in his cabinet, he fired Bolton. He tried to keep ’em guessing. But absolutely did not want war.

    Trump’s escalation and various crimes in Syria immediately after being inaugurated prove beyond a doubt that he had no intention of trying to improve relations with Russia (and no intention of following through on any other campaign promises for that matter).

    With regard to Ukraine, it’s been obvious since 2014 that the jews were intending to use Ukraine as a blunt instrument with which to beat Russia. If Trump “absolutely didn’t want war” he would’ve pressured Poroshenko and/or Zelensky to implement the Minsk agreement, but he did nothing of the kind. What he did do was denigrate Obama for not sending lethal weapons to Ukraine and brag about being the first to do so.

    Trump had a chance to put an end to this madness before it escalated to this point but instead he betrayed his country and his supporters for the sake of the jew agenda.

    It is a war and has been a war from the beginning. Everyone knows it is a war even if Putin made it illegal to call it one.

    Under full mobilization they can pull more troops but that would require Putin to admit that he was incorrect to call it a special military operation.

    Putin has put himself into his own trap. He arrogantly planned on taking the entire country through Kiev and didn’t have a backup plan. Admitting that it is a war is admittance that either his plans have failed or he wasn’t being honest.

    As for Trump he will just play the politics that benefit him. If Ukraine gets the upper hand then Trump will say that he was pro-Ukraine the whole time. Very few conservatives in DC still advocate neutrality with Russia and no one likes backing a loser.

    @RoatanBill

    Keep right on telling yourself that if it makes you happy. But your believing it does not make it so.

    The Russians attacked Kiev for the obvious reason: just like everyone else, they thought it would be easy, taking only a few days, and after capturing the capital and thus the government, the Ukrainian army would be in disarray and poorly coordinated.

    For me to believe your view that it was all just a feint, someone would have to explain to me why it is that having a 30 mile convoy get wiped out was a wise use of military gear and personnel. I do not buy that. The attack on Kiev is exactly what it seemed to be: a failed attempt to end the war fast by decapitating the government. That makes far more sense, and is a much smarter military strategy. This is also why the Russians tried for the airport and sent in assassination teams. These are actions that indicate a serious attempt for territorial control

    You are buying another piece of propaganda, that things are now going swimmingly for Russia in the south and east. That remains to be seen, and much like when the Kiev offensive stalled due to lack of supplies and the destruction of most of the heavy equipment, we could easily see the Ukrainians take back a lot of ground. Do not forget how fast the Russian gains around Kiev evaporated once even they knew it was over. We do not know what is happening in the south and east, and I would say this web page is not terribly reliable as a news source in my opinion. I will not say who will or will not win in the continuing battle there.

    The battle of Kiev in this war will go down as a Ukrainian victory. Whether they can follow that up by expelling Russian troops from their territory remains to be seen. I for one am going to be smart and not speculate. Its easy to talk about Russian failure at Kiev. Your spin aside, its now a matter of history. But the war is ongoing. Its impossible to say who will win.

    Oh and… I wont be letting the door knob hit me. I have no reason to leave.

    But to believe that the war in Ukraine is the United States fault, someone has to tell me how the United States ordered the Russian army to invade its neighbor.

    We have not always been perfect toward Russia. They are right about this.

  179. Thim says:
    @RoatanBill

    The vehicles didn’t move during the attempted storming of Kiev because the surrounding lands were wet and muddy because Putin waited too long to invade, at the request of the Chinese not to invade during the Olympics. So the Ukranians could knock out a few tanks and hold up the whole line. They became sitting ducks. Many ran out of gas. Units were spread out three times the maximum distance they should be. Outside communications many times, too far away for mechanics to reach, outside of artillery and air cover. A complete and total shit show. And the Chinese Army said as much at the time, on their own websites, that the Russian high command was just incompetent.

    Shoigu is an amateur, not even a military man. They did everything wrong at the beginning.

    So it was a complete failure. Eventually they managed to get the 1/3 of the armoured vehicles that survived returned via the mass retreat.

    Little by little the Russians are improving. Reports say they have turned electronic warfare back on, after 12 weeks of non usage, as they found out it was jamming their own comms. This was extremely embarrassing to them, but maybe now they can make it work.

    Russian shills like to say the Ukranians lie, and the media lies, which is all true. But it is also true that Russia lies constantly, and Russian shills lie even worse. From both sides, an avalanche of lies.

    Agreed, 100%.

    Russia thought this would go like their invasion of Georgia, or Chechnya. But those were relatively speaking smaller and poorly armed opponents compared to a nation with the size and wealth of Ukraine and their access to modern weapons like Javelin missiles.

    In the end, the weight of Russia may well prevail here. But if you had Vladimir Putin right now, strapped to the table and Dick Cheney was waterboarding him for information? Putin would admit he expected to capture the Ukrainian capital in a matter of days and the war to last not much longer than that.

    In fact I expected that too, when the war started.

    I think Putin believed his own bullshit when he thought the Ukrainians would welcome the Russians as liberators, and not foreign invaders, and that the war would be brief and easy.

    This makes sense in the context of numerous reports of hit squads trying to find Zelensky. They were attempting a quick win via a head strike. Basically kill the president and tell the military to stand down. That is the only way it could last two weeks and why they charged at Kiev in the beginning.

    As president Trumps first visit should have been to Moscow to visit Putin – not to Riyad (a trip intended to enrich his Jewish son-in-law and his race-traitor daughter “Yael” to the tune of billions). Trump allowed the Jewish media to cower him into submission and to adopt an anti-Russia stance. Eventually Trump would boast about killing 100’s of Russian mercenaries who were in Syria fighting ISIS and Al Qaeda (remember them? the bad guys).

    Unable to fight back against the Jewish media’s Russian collusion hoax Trump spent four year’s trying to prove he was “tough on Russia”. It turned out that the guy who we were told played “4-D chess” was just an effing moron and coward.

And so I asked others and many were not really enthusiastic about his writings , but who knows if these people read much of his accounts and are just following whay others say.

    A friend is staying with me right now – she is X soviet military { a pensioner } from Smolensk and I just discussed the Jews with her. I had been reading a Unz article that day. I started first by asking her if she knew what a Zionist is ? She said no , then I asked if she knew what a Zionist Jew is ? No again. Then I asked her if she knew Trotsky got his money for the Bolshevik Rev. from NY Jews and she was really puzzled.

    I asked her why the Russian and Ukraine Oligarchs aren’t called Jewish Oligarchs , since they all have homes and citizenship in Israel ? Another puzzled look. Then I started to tell her the truth about who runs the USA and E U – and why Zelinsky has a Nazi army. Nope, I don’t think that the Russians are that educated on the whole Jewish scam that has taken place in the world and I think it’s because the RF Gov. doesn’t want them to know either.

Not only the price of gas and oil but all the other resources that they sell has shot up so may as well keep on milking this war.

    You get your news sources from the empire of lies, the US. I get no news from that source, but from several other countries. I suspect neither of us knows the truth but further suspect the US is pumping out more BS than anyone else. For weeks, it was claimed that Ukraine is winning, while losing more and more territory. Foreign sites reported what the NY Times was shoveling out, for example. Then, after Russia controls 20% of Ukraine territory, the Times suddenly switched to Ukraine isn’t doing so well and there needs to be a diplomatic solution when the US regime figured out they can’t keep betting on a losing horse.

    I see no evidence on the ground for any optimism on the part of Ukraine. For their 8 year long shelling and murder of their own people, they deserve what they’re getting. Russia should take the entire east coast to landlock what’s left of Ukraine and just announce a cessation of hostilities without signing anything. That leaves a Korea situation with no final resolution.

    I do believe the invasion was a mistake. Russia should have used just air power to take out their military hardware all over the country leaving their soldiers to fight with sticks and stones. But that’s history now. I’d leave this situation unresolved and pound the shit out of anything inside the rump of Ukraine that looks like military gear from now on.

  202. @Commentator Mike

    I don’t think the Russians knew that they would get a positive financial result at the time of the Kiev maneuver. That became clear for certain only after the gas for Rubles strategy was announced. Prior to that, hydrocarbon prices were still in play. It was the genius move of demanding Ruble payment that solidified their financial position. Had Russia known this would happen, they would have done it years ago.

    Russia could have carpet bombed Kiev to take out their gov’t, but didn’t. The war has dragged on slowly because Russia didn’t want to destroy more than necessary and not cause the deaths of the civilian population more than as a consequence of minimal military action.

    I think what this conflict shows is that Russia and the US are both full of shit when it comes to a WW-II style of engagement. Neither has the long term resources and that means nukes get used should they face off. I think that’s why there is now a desire on the part of the “west” to terminate the fighting. I was surprised by the various gov’ts admitting that they need to manufacture more of their toys because they are running out.

    It’s actually what I suspected for years – the US “defense” spending is being siphoned off and there’s little actual material to call upon to actually fight a war. The reliance on long lead time expensive hardware is not a winning strategy if the opposition is formidable. Shock and Awe works on a minor player that has to fold in a hurry before the US’s toy stockpile runs out.

    It’s all relative bro, every president in my lifetime has sold us out to some extent for the sake of the jew agenda.

    Trump’s a liar who stole the election by completely misrepresenting himself. Even Clinton, the demonic scum that she is, was more honest than traitorous-con-man-jew-lover-and-infantile-narcissist Trump with his bait-and-switch campaign scam. As I see it, Trump literally didn’t do ANYTHING good for anyone except jews.

    My vote goes to the one least likely to get us all killed in a nuclear war on behalf of The Neocons. That was Trump. Both times. And next time.

    You’re looking through rose-colored glasses to split hairs. By that subjective standard you could also make a good case for Obama. Trump could’ve started WW3 when he attacked the Shayrat air base in Syria or he could’ve started it when he assassinated General Soleimani. Even if Syria, Russia and Iran showed restraint, Trump’s jews could’ve done a false-flag act of “retaliation” and started WW3 regardless of Trump’s calculations. That it didn’t happen is due to sheer luck. (And don’t forget that Trump also took serious risks with his serial provocations against China). Trump’s abundantly proven by his actions that he doesn’t give a damn about America anymore than Biden does.

    The bigger point you seem to miss is that Trump was in a good position to put an end to the relentless drive to WW3 but he instead betrayed us. I didn’t vote for Trump to waste four years maintaining the self-destructive imperial status quo, take pointless risks, and greatly elevate tensions everywhere while barely avoiding WW3, only to hand everything back to the same people who seem determined to start it.

    A U.S. official said the Russians had been warned before the U.S. launched at least 59 tomahawk missiles aimed at Syria.

    Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said in an official statement: “Russian forces were notified in advance of the strike using the established deconfliction line. U.S. military planners took precautions to minimize risk to Russian or Syrian personnel located at the airfield.”

    The strikes, which hit an airfield near Homs, struck aircraft and infrastructure including the runway, NBC reported. There is no word on casualties yet, but no people were targeted, the official told NBC.

    Now you have me thinking C M. Many of the old Soviets or Sovoks as Rollo Slav…. says, are atheists, so they never touched a bible, while some have been Firm believers. This is true in regards your other reply too. So, this shows that the CCCP leadership was definitely Jews and society was programed to be a trained audience. This is also why Israel wanted all the old Soviets { jews or not} in their country – they are atheists and very well behaved { trained}. And as far as our rock and roll, hard rock etc. – most of these old folks don’t even know who the Beatles are , much less that song that brags about WHO is really behind all the killing – Sym. for Diablo. ” Please let me introduce myself- I am ….. ya I know all about the devil – I met in Nam – I fully understand the score.

    So now that the Zionist Bolshevik Jews run Washington, the WEF, and the Globalist crime syndicate , it’s the Americans turn to become the Sovoks or the ” Trained Audience’. Note how the Jews Bolsheviks trained the old Russian Empire folks – they killed millions and enslaved the rest and it looks like it will be the same in the USA. Note how Washington already has its CHKA in place.

    I was fairly religious growing – on my own mostly bible school, confirmation classes as a teenager and read the bible slowly as a older adult. Lutheran baptized and United Church Christ in teen ager years – ya their were some hot girls from HS in the class too. I had some good friends in Alaska in my adult years that I could bounce questions to – Jehovah Witness’s, Mormons, and Indians { Ru. Orthodox} – believe it or not we all had good conversations. I stuck with my own interpretations and the Indian ways of the earth. Most Russians haven’t had this type of education or ever wanted to indulge – my opinion. I keep this to myself here, but go into the beautiful Orthodox churches from time to time. Kiev’s Lavra caverns is a must see, if it is ever a free place someday – it’s one place you need to visit.

    They have got tremendously rich from it so far so why not prolong it as long as possible? Not only the price of gas and oil but all the other resources that they sell has shot up so may as well keep on milking this war.

    Unexpected consequence. Now it appears that Russia will benefit even more as the summer fades and the cold winds of winter settle over Europe. I’m sure the Russians will remember all those countries that sanctioned them. I wonder what the price of oil will be in Berlin come January 2023. And the price of caviar.

    As far as Ukraine goes, they had no way to win an outright war with Russia. Even as foolish as some of the Russian military moves seem at the present, they are too big and too strong. They should have put up a token resistance, then surrendered. Live to fight another day and another way.

    Yes, anyone who has read the Bible should know better. But that’s why the ((Jews)) work so hard to ban the Bible, and all other remnants of Christianity. The Russians learned the hard way where “tolerance” for the ((Jews)) leads.

    There’s a popular quote going around right now: “Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. And, weak men create hard times.”

    It’s true, but it leaves out the ((Jews)) as a factor. So a Citizen might adopt the saying without mentioning the ((Jews)), but he’d only be painting a partial truth.

    In fact, an equal truth would be “Christianity creates strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create ((Jews)). And, ((Jews)) create hard times.”

    The ((Jews)) have created the coming hard times for the entire globe. And the globe is going to want its revenge. That’s why the ((Jews)) built iron domed, bunker state Israel. From there, they can dig in and retreat even further, to their father, the Devil.

    Of course I have no idea what the Kremlin’s plan is but there’s surely something strange going on. Take for example Avdeevka which is just outside Donetsk from which most of the attacks on the city of Donetsk are launched. The Russians have been all over the place and have seized a lot of territory but this place is still in Ukrainian hands. I know they may be well dug in but as from here they launch deadly attacks against civilians one would have thought this would have been cleared first. Perhaps as long as Russian civilians are being killed in Donetsk it gives the government the justification for their military operation in the Ukraine in front of their own public. Weird.

But then they’re obsessed with the End Times and are allied with the Jews in the earlier stages of the prophecy to bring it on; it does not imply that they are not aware of the true character of the Jews.

    Christian Zionists, like ((Jews)) suffer from tunnel vision and minutia obsession. Like ((Jews)) (and other primitives) they’re also backward-looking. One who is looking backward can’t see what’s coming, and so can only imagine destruction. And in the case of the ((Jews)), know the extent of their crimes, and so see doom ahead. So they might as well go for broke now — bet the farm, live large, “for tomorrow we die.”

    This is why Neocons/Neolibs and their useful idiots bet the farm on Israel, bet the farm on the war on “Islamofascism,” bet the farm on the war against Christian Russia, and now support LGBTPedophile…

    These people are complete and total stiff-necks, jackasses, prone to evil — just like Exodus 32 says they are.

    That’s what people get so wrong about the Jewish question. They think these Zionists are the good guy Jews from the OT (or pretend to). They don’t understand or don’t want to understand they’re the bad guy Golden Calfers, Moneychangers, Marxists. That’s their tradition. That’s their “Israel.” That’s why they can’t be reformed.

    I’ve suggested before, tongue in cheek, that they’re reptiles disguised as human beings, just as voodooists and other practitioners of dark arts are apes disguised as human beings. But I’m not so sure they would dispute this. They haven’t evolved, they know it, and they’re proud of it.

    I understand that but missiles can go astray because of hardware faults, electronic warfare and damage from air defense systems. And IIRC the warning was given shortly before the attack so it was possible that not all Russians in the area were warned. And how did Trump know that some SAA officer wouldn’t try to retaliate or that the jews wouldn’t take the opportunity to do a false-flag retaliation? It was a pointless, reckless act which risked dangerous escalation and made it clear that Trump’s campaign was a fraud and that he’s working for the jews, not for America.

    Secondly, as a neighbor of Russia for 30 years, and a very peaceful neighbor, I do not advise you to get into any relationship with this country. Even if it sounds like a good idea, is a toxic partner, who we trusted so many times, and every time – hunger, war, territories stolen, or death followed. Getting aligned with Scandinavian countries, this is the best possible partner, as is honest, reliable, values first people and than – political structures, and ALWAYS brings human in first place. Russia has corruption in the first place, they are extremely poor, if you go into crowd, their imperialistic way of seeing the world is to invade and exhaust the invaded. Give me one example of a modern or well-thought structure developed by Russia for their own people? I do not even need to mention Ukraine , they treat their own people terribly, where you get a broken life and 15 years in prison on top of that if you dare to tell you do not like what your government does. This is what you wanna cope with? Really?

    The last point I will leave, as I really find this article a propaganda one and almost every sentence makes me feel bad, is that IS NOT A OPERATION!!! IS A WAR, where people are dying and I am daily talking to my friends still in Ukraine and the amount of pain they receive is not imaginable.

    I do not wish anyone to experience what we face now. I only wish for you to try to imagine, that February 24, just after all of us celebrated the ” day of protector of the country” the air alarm started and bombs started to fall… and since then it did not stop! Bombs fall on Kyiv, where I was born, on Lutsk, where my sister lives, just nearby her house! She runs with newborn baby across the border to Poland, can you imagine how far that bombs reach??? Lutsk, see it on map! I am not even telling you completely destroyed Kharkiv, Azovstal, Bucha, Irpin and Mariupol… What the russians did there is inhuman and has no forgiveness. This amount of damage marks their karma one way to the grave and for me, people doing these things – lose the status of human beings. You can easily find information online about destroyed civilian buildings and civilian people tortured, raped and killed, including so many children, and even newborns… unimaginable! There are tons of independent press, including from your country, doing reports and taking pictures, even dying. I do not understand how it is possible you write an article like this, while all this is part of my present?

    Evil has more than one face. You see, during this war, we realized the evil is not only Putin. His corrupted friends, shouting from TVs and creating zombies across the country are evil. The zombies, going to war and killing Ukrainian people are evil too. How does he get to have so many people so bad? He does exactly what you do. He spreads fake information, working in his favor. This way, you are also one of his faces after writing what you wrote. And I hate you no less than him for it.

    This post is equal to Russian propaganda posts where the main lines are ” where have you been 8 years ago” and “Ukraine brought agreements, that why russia attacked” – both statements are lie! Ukraine gave up nuclear weapons in exchange of the protection of Russia, and 8 years ago, Russia sponsors a conflict in the East of Ukrainr, just unable to stand that we switched corrupted government, fought in revolution, and sent Russia with Yanukovich and it´s propaganda to hell.

    What a coincidence, immediately after we said NO to corruption and Russia, Crimea was “saved”, as apparently, it was under attack of nazis, (only Russians see nazis everywhere they need to enter with guns) and the eastern part gets in war.

    Have you EVER heard about Ukrainian nazis from ANY other country? Have you read about HOW conflict started in East in 2014, have you analyzed the reasons, sources and independent reports? Do you know WHO is Yanukovich and HOW we get rid of him? Do you know HOW HARD was a revolution for us and what happened to all of Ukraine, except ocuppied territories after we separated from Russia? Check your data!!

    What is happening today, is a fight between a corrupted old dying system and a new, young, evolving, tech, intelligent and sharing world. Ukraine wants to be in the United Nations, NATO or any other organization because we do want to participate, exchange and create together. Our way of existing is developing, creating new technologies, and outsourcing and does not depend on invasion because we make money with our brain, not hands in blood.

    Russia wants to be cut off, as they do not want their people to realize, that somewhere, someone’s life is better. Their model of profit gaining is based on invasion and corruption, this way, they will always need a new victim. I will not even insist on this theory, lets’s just wait: past 30 years Ukraine got in 0 wars, and Russia what? Moldova, Georgia, Siria, continue the list yourself

    I demand verification of the information sources for this article, especially the ” special operation ” one. Because if the source is Putin, this is the same guy who says my country never existed and belongs to Russia.

    Evil has more than one face. You see, during this war, we realized the evil is not only Putin.

    To make your statement more accurate, you should have written…

    Perhaps you could squeeze out a second thought: “The Uke military must have shelled these Uke cities into ruins, making Russia’s Special Military Operation necessary.” Yes, the US war in Ukraine, 2014 to -.

    This is far too small to serve as a buffer zone. A meaningful buffer between Russian and Nato missiles would need to be at least 1,000 km wide.

    It’s also no proof that Russia isn’t intending to rebuild an empire. After all, Russia is likely to conquer more territory. In fact, the longer the conflict continues, the more territory the Russians will conquer. It’s up to Ukraine to decide how much they want to lose.

    Thus, the author’s claims aren’t valid as arguments against Western allegations about Russian imperial intentions.

    What, however, clearly is an argument against Russian imperial intention is the fact that Russia refused to recognize the independence of the DPR and LPR for the last 8 years. It’s only after Ukraine officially shreddered Minsk II and openly violated UNSC Resolution 2202, and after Ukrainian forces started shelling the two republics on Feb. 16. that Putin finally recognized the independence of the two republics in order to come to their assistance under Art. 51 of the UN Charter. How would Putin have pursued Russian imperial designs if he did not even recognize the independence of the two republics that desperately wanted to be part of Russia? The Western narrative is full of holes.

    Moreover, Putin like other Russian decision-makers are rational enough to know that Russia doesn’t have the means to build a global empire. They have said it again and again. Even Dugin repeated it in a speech recently. Russian leaders are clearly committed to the multipolar world in which Russia, China, India, etc., are major players. Russian leaders like most politicians in the non-Western world are sick and tired of the arrogance of Western imperialists.

    Thanks for this demonstration of the selective perception of Ukrainian nationalism. Most people in the West can’t believe how evil Ukrainian nationalism really is.

    Where you among that new, young, evolving, tech, intelligent crowd in Odessa that burned alive 50 citizens of that city in 2014? Did you make the Bandera smoothies? Or did you clobber to deaths those who tried to escape from the flames? Did you rejoice about burning alive those “potato beetles” or how do you call your fellow-citizens that don’t want to be part of the fascist frenzy? Is that something you feel proud about?

    I think even the original Nazis would have recoiled in horror in the face of so much cruelty.

    Today’s Ukraine is a multi-ethnic conglomerate created by the Soviet Union from parts of Russia, Belorussia, Poland, Hungary and Romania. Ukrainian nationalism will put an end to that Ukraine. For 30 years you had the opportunity to create a federal state that would have worked for all ethnic groups. Ukrainian nationalism killed that option. You have nobody to blame but yourself. Rump Ukraine will be much smaller. And once your country has been destroyed and American imperialism has no more use for you, the Americans will turn their back on you like they turned their back on Afghans, Kurds, and so many of their former allies.
