Henry Kissinger, 97, Henry the K. for those he keeps close, is either a Delphic oracle-style strategic thinker or a certified war criminal for those kept not so close.

He now seems to have been taking time off his usual Divide and Rule stock in trade – advising the combo behind POTUS, a.k.a. Crash Test Dummy – to emit some realpolitik pearls of wisdom.

At a recent forum in Arizona, referring to the festering, larger than life Sino-American clash, Henry the K. said, “It’s the biggest problem for America; it’s the biggest problem for the world. Because if we can’t solve that, then the risk is that all over the world a kind of cold war will develop between China and the United States.”

In realpolitik terms, this “kind of Cold War” is already on; across the Beltway, China is unanimously regarded as the premier US national security threat.

Kissinger added US policy toward China must be a mix of stressing US “principles” to demand China’s respect and dialogue to find areas of cooperation: “I’m not saying that diplomacy will always lead to beneficial results…This is the complex task we have… Nobody has succeeded in doing it completely.”

Henry the K. actually must have lost the – diplomatic – plot. What Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are now involved in, full time, is to demonstrate – mostly to the Global South – how the American-enforced “rules-based international order” has absolutely nothing to do with international law and the respect of national sovereignty.

At first I had archived these Henry the K. platitudes out of sight. But then someone who used to hold a stellar position at the top of the US Deep State showed he had been paying close attention.

This personality – let’s call him Mr. S. – has been one of my invaluable, trustworthy sources since the early 2000s. Mutual confidence was always key. I asked him if I could publish selected passages of his analysis, not naming names. Consent was given – ruefully. So fasten your seat belts.

Dancin’ with Mr. S.

Mr. S., in a quite intriguing fashion, seems to be expressing the collective views of a number of extremely qualified people. Right from the start, he points out how Henry the K.’s observations explain today’s Russia-China-Iran triangle.

The first point that we make is that it was not Kissinger who created policy for Nixon, but the Deep State. Kissinger was just a messenger boy. In the 1972 situation the Deep State wanted to get out of Vietnam, which policy was put in place as containment of communist China and Russia. We were there based on the domino theory.

He goes on:

The Deep State wanted to achieve a number of objectives in approaching Chairman Mao, who was antagonized by Russia. It wanted to ally in 1972 with China against Russia. That made Vietnam meaningless, for China would become the containing party of Russia and Vietnam no longer meant anything. We wanted to balance China against Russia. Now, China was not a major power in 1972 but it could drain Russia, forcing it to place 400,000 troops on their border. And our Deep State policy worked. We in the Deep State had thought it through, and not Kissinger. 400,000 troops on the Chinese border was a drain on their budget, as later Afghanistan became with over 100,000 troops, and the Warsaw Pact had another 600,000 troops.

And that brings us into Afghanistan:

The Deep State wanted to start a Vietnam for Russia in Afghanistan in 1979. I was among those against it, as this would needlessly use the Afghani people as cannon fodder and that was unfair. I was overruled. Here Brzezinski was playing Kissinger; another overrated nothing who just carried messages.

The Deep State also decided to crash the oil price, as that would economically weaken Russia. And that worked in 1985, driving the price to eight dollars a barrel, which ate up half the Russian budget. Then, we basically gave permission for Saddam Hussein to invade Kuwait as a ploy to send in our advanced army to knock him out and demonstrate our superiority to the world in weaponry, which very much demoralized the Russians and put the fear of God into Islamic oil. Then we created the Star Wars fiction. Russia to our surprise lost their nerve and collapsed.

Mr. S. defines all of the above as “wonderful” in his opinion, as “communism went out and Christianity came in”:

We then wanted to welcome Russia into the community of Christian nations, but the Deep State wanted to dismember them. That was stupid, as they would balance against China at least from their Mackinder point of view. It was naive on my part to hope to a return of Christianity, as the West was moving rapidly toward total moral disintegration.

In the meantime, our ally China continues to grow as we were not finished with the dismemberment of Russia and the advisors we sent to Russia destroyed the whole economy in the 1990s against my objections. The 78-day Belgrade bombing finally woke Russia up and they started a massive re-militarization as it was obvious that the intention was in the end to bomb Moscow into the ground. So defensive missiles became essential. Thus, the S-300, S-400, S-500 and soon S-600s.

The Deep State had been warned by me at our meetings on how bombing Belgrade in 1999 would cause Russia to remilitarize and I lost the argument. Belgrade was bombed for 78 days versus the vengeance bombing of Hitler for two days. And China continues to grow.

Why balance of power doesn’t work

And that bring us to a new era – that started in practice with the Chinese announcement of the New Silk Roads in 2013 and Maidan in Kiev in 2014:

China wakes up to all of this in that they begin to realize that they have been just used, and that the US fleet controls their trade routes, and decides to approach Russia in 2014 just about the time of their witnessing the Maidan overthrow of Ukraine. This overthrow was organized by the Deep State when they started to understand that they had lost the arms race, and did not even know what was happening.

The Deep State wanted to draw Russia into a Vietnam again in the Ukraine to drain them and crash the oil price again, which they did. Beijing studied this and saw the light. If Russia is overthrown, the West will control all their natural resources, which they see themselves needing as they grew into a giant economy larger than the US. And Beijing starts to open up a warm relationship with Moscow seeking to obtain land based natural resources as oil and natural gas from Russia to avoid the seas for natural resources as much as they can. In the meantime, Beijing massively accelerates its building of submarines carrying missiles capable of destroying the US fleets.

So where does Kissinger in Arizona fit in?

Now, Kissinger reflects the Deep State angst on the Russia-Chinese relationship and wants this split up for dear life. This is interestingly covered here by Kissinger. He does not want to tell the truth about balance of power realities. He describes them as “our values”, when the US has no values left but anarchy, looting, and burning down hundreds of cities. Biden hopes to buy all these disenfranchised masses as money printing goes wild.

So we are back to Kissinger shocked at the new Russian-Chinese alliance. They must be separated.


Now, I do not agree with the balance of power intriguers in that morality or noble values should govern international relations, and not power. The US has been following balance of power dreams since 1900 and now it faces economic ruin. These ideas do not work. There is no reason the US cannot be a friend of Russia and China and the differences can be worked out. But you cannot get to first base as balance of power considerations dominate everything. That is the tragedy of our time.

    the whole article is very interesting, but I had a question: how can Mr. S. have been at “the top” of the US Deep State, and also state: “We then wanted to welcome Russia into the community of Christian nations, but the Deep State wanted to dismember them”? Was he in the Deep State, or not? Because he stated “the Deep State”, not a faction within the Deep State.

    A minor quibble, to be sure, but I was curious about it.

    I can have no idea if Mr. S actually exists, but the quotes attributed to Mr. S strike me as being those of a realist who was on the fringes of what the US Deep State was doing back to the end of the Vietnam War.

    The Brit WASP Deep State ravaged the vast majority of the natives of the British Isles for centuries.

    And that requires an aside:

    Before the Tudor Revolution/Protestant Reformation, the Elites of the English were focused on slugging each other into submission. They tended to leave English peasants, yeoman farmers, and small shop keepers and craftsmen alone. But the Tudors and then the Reformation changed all that, giving rise to Brit WASP Elites (nouveau riche commoners as well as hereditary nobles) who began preying directly upon the English poor, just not as much as they preyed upon the Irish, the Scots, and the Welsh.

    And when the Brit WASP Elites could no longer squeeze immense wealth from the colonies, the British Empire was ready to topple. But the US saved it in World War 1. Claiming to act to make the world safe for democracy and to end empires and the wars empires cause, the Yank WASP Elite took the third big step into becoming the Global WASP Empire Part 2.

    The American Deep State, the Deep State of Yank Anglo-Zionism (which is a different flavor from Brit Anglo-Zionism, but at least as philo-Semitic) has never rested an hour since then, scheming to rule every corner of the globe, and, at best, unconcerned with how it is driving the American Middle Class toward near extinction.

    The Deep State of the Anglo-Zionist Empire is evil. It loves war as much as it loves money and raw power.

  5. Clearly there is no coherence or logic to US foreign policy even from its own warped viewpoint. If they really regard China as the number one adversary then they should be courting Russia, that is, doing what the Nixon administration did with China to help contain the USSR.

    One can only surmise that it’s the Zionist faction that is pushing for hostility towards Russia because of Russia interfering with Israel’s Mid-East plans, so the Zionist faction with its regional interests is undermining the efforts of the deep state elements more interested in world hegemony.

  6. The peoples of the world can get along with each other.

    It’s the governments that start all the trouble and drag their economies and populations into a death march.

    Those that can’t see anarchism as a goal, probably never to be entirely reached, haven’t the imagination to even consider it. That’s a real shame.

  7. Carlo says:

    Like in almost any group, there are always factions and opposing interests. It seems “Mr. S” belongs/ed to a paleo-conservative, Christian faction in the Deep State, which still had some influence in Reagan presidency, but lost it completely under Clinton and Bush II. Considering that his faction is almost completely ejected from power (Trump made a feeble effort to bring it back, with no success),we understand that he is willing to speak.

    An interesting article. Here is perhaps another angle.

    The rich wanted to move US industries to China not so much to counterbalance Russia, but because they stood to make so much money out of all that lovely cheap labor. And they did, and they do. For now…

    One notes that “Kissinger Associates” got a lot of money from China, and Kissinger duly wrote op-eds about how wonderful it would be for the US to move all of its industries to China. Messenger-boy, or whore?

    US elites thought that China would be a nice docile colonial source of cheap labor, like Mexico or Indonesia. The Chinese elites had other ideas, and are now very much rivals for power. Oopsie!

    The elites moved to loot Russia not so much to destroy it, I think, as to just frickin’ LOOT it. They are angry at Russia in large part, I think, because Russia refused to be looted. How dare they? Does Putin have any idea just how much profit he snatched out from under the hands of the US elites? (answer: of course he does).

    Balance of power and arrogant ultimately stupid deep-state strategy stuff? Sure. But don’t count out raw naked short-term greed.

    What about the implied moral disintegration of “the top of the US Deep State”, and the position Pepe’s source had within it?

    Some weird things here:

    Here Brzezinski was playing Kissinger; another overrated nothing who just carried messages.

    Good plans are not made by committee. A “Deep State” plan comes from SOMEONE, not an anonymous assembly of pipe-smoking extras from the X-Files. If not Brzezinski, then who?

    Then, we basically gave permission for Saddam Hussein to invade Kuwait … Then we created the Star Wars fiction. Russia to our surprise lost their nerve and collapsed.

    “Star Wars” was put out to the MSM about 7 years before Gulf War 1, namely under Reagan, in 1983. In fact, a good chunk of the money allocated for “Star Wars” was actually spend on practical & feasible technology that was used in Gulf War 1. One may note that “missile defense” is still a pipe dream 40 years later.

    It is also my contention that the Soviet Union collapsed because it was shown as an inept assembly of loser bureaucrats through the Chernobyl disaster. Utter confusion and inability to provide truthful safety information to the population causes people to become restive.

    Wonder weapons really don’t exist anywhere, nor in the US, nor in China, nor in Russia. But this country surely have the best air defence in the world: it is multi-layered, from long-range systems like the S-300/400/500 to medium range like S-350 and Buk to short range/point defence like Tor-M2 and Pantsir. Then all these systems are integrated into a network that also include figthers (Su-35S, Su-30SM, soon the Su-57), interceptors (MiG-31BM) and AWACs (A-50U, soon the A-100). All this makes an almost impenetrable airspace even to stealth aircraft. Syria, of course, has nothing of the sort, their only modern AD is an isolated S-300 battery that the Russians sent them some years ago, and a few short range Pantsir.

  20. If Mr. S is a real person, I wonder how the Deep State works.

    I at least know where Mr K fits in the universe as a whole:

    1 – Kissinger is a 33rd degree Mason of the Italian P1 Lodge.

    2- In the US, free masonry in power circles is mostly based on the Scottish Rites that used to be led by Albert Pike – remember the Statue that just fell on the Capitol ground last year?

    i.e they believe in MORALS and DOGMA by ALBERT PIKE

    The US killings around the world is all based on the MORALS and DOGMA doctrines.

    “LUCIFER, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darknesss! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble,sensual or selfish Souls ? Doubt it or NOT!

    You can get a copy of Morals and Dogma from any free masonic library in the South. Albert Pike was the Founder of the Ku Klux Klan, Civil War Confederate General, Sovereign Grand Commander of the freemasonic Southern Jurisdiction.

    So, how can Mr S mingle with such people?

    Does that mean that the Luciferians in the Deep State tolerate morally sound realists?

    Oh and wasn’t that system supposed to be also impenetrable!!!!

    How embarrassing for the Soviets,no wonder those communist clowns lost the cold war

    All the stuff you’ve mentioned is old fashioned legacy junk,its the equivalent of the Maginot Line,besides which you can’t defend the largest country in the world with a hundred Pantisar,impossible

    As for the other stuff you’ve mentioned,well if you’d read the source I’ve given you’d understand why it wont work,and they’ll be huge gaps in Russian air defence into which weapons will go through and degrade Russian military,if it comes to that,unfortunately you get to many small boys with a fantasy fixation about these things,as opposed to the actual reality of Russia current capacity

    All the west/ NATO has to do is wait,and time will destroy the Putin regime,as Russia is a totally bent criminal and hysterical entity,its economy is still dependent upon exporting raw materials,which other countries basically add value to,Russia is incapable of doing so and under Putin the rot of Russian economy will continue,unfortunately it seems too many people listen to the saker or Escobar and don’t bother looking at the real facts about Russia, so basically Russia simply can’t win another arms race its doesn’t have the industrial capacity,and its own MIC,military industrial complex,is horrendous with corruption and inefficient stupidity

    This was in the 80’s. But the thing iis (even Wikipedia article talks about this): he was detected during his flight path by many PVO (air defence forces) units, but after the terrible shooting down of KAL007 in 1983, authorization for shooting down intruders had to come directly from the HQ in Moscow.
    Also, if you had any idea about these matters (I am not a specialist and have just a superficial knowledge about it, but it seems from you comments that you are simply clueless), light, low and slow flying aircraft are precisely the most difficult to track and intercept.

    Well you have light slow and cheap things now called drones

    Smaller and lighter than a Cessna,and very deadly,and they’re just one method of getting at your valuable military assets,as they found out recently in the little war between Armenia and Azerbaijan,oh plus the same Turkish drones took a chunk out of Assads forces also,plus they also blew to bits those precious Pantisar things which silly people think are invincible,which they’re obviously not

    There’s a paradigm shift taking place in military technology and tactics and those big missiles are likely to be bypassed just like dreadnoughts or that Maginot line thing

    As for Rust the thing is the Soviet air defence system failed, so did the recent shoot down of the Ukrainian airliner by the Iranians,so did the Saudi defence system when attacked by drones remember against they’re oil infrastructure!

    The fact is Russia has placed its efforts into trying to stop ‘ shock and awe’ unfortunately they’re fighting yesterday’s conflict,the future ‘ shock and awe’ will not come in the same way,ie waves of manned combat aircraft,it’ll be a war of AI,plus hacking,drone swarms, spoofing and ECM mass combinations and will probably give the first mover the total advantage,one in which the Russian will find difficult to defend,especially since a new arms race will be using cutting edge technology of the 4th industrial revolution which Russia simply doesn’t lead in,and because their industrial base and industrial competitiveness is so much lower than that of the west and NATO it’s difficult to see much future for the Russian military,its probably reached its high point with its legacy systems and propaganda about hypersonic stuff

    This source says as much about Kissinger, and also places Brzezinski in the same ‘errand boy’ category. I think this has the ring of truth. There is no reason to think that the actual shot callers, what he calls here the ‘deep state,’ are interested in being in the public spotlight.

    Who these shot callers actually are right now is anybody’s guess, but I would not doubt that the final say about things like kinetic action or important geopolitical moves, are not actually decided by this Biden-Harris ‘administration, or any previous one for that matter. Trump was quite publicly and visibly overruled on lots of stuff. They even had the gall to come out and admit it in that ‘anonymous’ oped in NYT, calling themselves ‘the steady state.’

    From my life long experience and being raised in New York City, I think there are 4 types of jews. There are Zionist jews, power hungry jews, religious jews and jews in name only.

    The Zionist jews are political animals and infest governments.
    The power hungry jews are the heads of corporations.

    There’s overlap between these and they stick together to further their and their like minded travelers interests, mostly other jews in the same category.

    The first two cause all the problems. The last two are relatively normal folks just trying to get by in life. To paint all of them with the same brush just isn’t fair to the many who work for a living and are just as put upon by the establishment power structure as the rest of us. That’s not to say that small business jews don’t look out for their tribe, because they do. But that’s just like the Italians, Irish, etc preferring their respective tribe.

    Just by conflating ‘Zios’ and ‘jews’ in your reply says you can’t or don’t want to distinguish between them. Would it be fair to you if everyone said you’re just like Hitler, Stalin, and all the white serial killers just because (I assume) you’re white?

    Strange thing to write,it’s already happening,so no clowns just new facts on the ground

    I love your graphic

    No data for India or China though, but what is it all those fabulous Russian engineers do ?????

    I look around my home and i don’t see evidence of all that engineering excellence from Russia

    my furniture isn’t Russian
    my car isn’t Russian
    my household appliances aren’t Russian
    my tools aren’t Russian

    Basically nothing i own,or have ever owned is Russian!

    So what is it exactly they do with all those engineers???

    Make hypersonic wizbangs!!

    Or maybe they steal money from their new pet project,the cosmodrone money pit

    I don’t see Russian stuff on Mars either,although the Chinese engineers have managed it,didn’t the Soviet attempts to launch Mars stuff,but failed,twice!

    they must work for the state,in the security services,spy and hack, in the Russian MIC,or in all those extractive industries like oil and minerals which still represent the top ten exports from Russia

    Basically Russia is a niche supplier of certain technology,nuclear,turbines stuff like that,but remains very weak on many area’s of technology and is still highly dependent upon imports from other countries

    So Russia can produce as many engineers as it wants,from its declining and disastrous demographic,but it is still not a globally competitive economy,Putin has failed,and he’ll accelerate this failure going forwards and don’t think China will help as they’re basically stealing Russian military tech,one of the few remaining area’s of excellence for Russian engineering

    The fundamentalist Talmudic Jews are a very great problem indeed. They believe that Jews are a different, higher, species than the goyim. They believe that killing goyim, or refusing to help them when in mortal peril, are not just acceptable, but mitzvot. Alone in their yeshivas, giving themselves brain damage from ceaseless head-nodding, the danger is contained, but when it escapes, it is merciless and genocidal. That is why, as Israel lurches ever further Right and fundamentalist, the Palestinians are in such existential danger.

    In what fantasy do you think Putin would ever attempt to go against China with no provocations?

    USA successfully courted China against the Soviets because Soviets at the time wanted to nuke China. At one point, China had like 1.5 million troops along the China/USSR border.

    There is no way to woo Putin. What USA needs right now is hoping for another Gorbachev/Yetsin kind of dimwit as Putin successor.

    But whose to say it will matter by that time? China is full steam ahead into alternative/nuclear energy and electric vehicles. Oil wouldn’t matter much once China can transform half of their energy needs to non fossil fuels.

    You are thinking of the definition of an American engineer and it is not the same . I was going to reply when I saw F Bs chart from Forbes, but I came across yours. In Russia, an engineer is a tech guy that works, with their hands and head on most the components in airplanes, trucks, newer advanced Autos, in electronics, etc. These guys went to school and use their computers, tech manuals etc related to their work. There are also architects, structural engineers etc. like the US definition. I worked in Ukraine for a Russian company , so it took me awhile to figure this one out.

    I completely agree, Zarathustra, the article sounds very realistic.

    US foreign “policy” is like as shapeless and deformed as those morbidly obese people running around in supermarkets on those electrical rollers and filling their shopping carts with doughnuts. Bombs and munitions are the MIC’s doughnuts and muffins. The reason for the formlessness is the fact that this isn’t US foreign policy, but the one dictated to our leaders by our Israeli overlords.

    Pepe’s article makes sense because as can be expected, people in the government apparatus would be (misguidedly) thinking about policy in such logical terms. The fact that they can’t affect the policy is proof that their incentives are shaped by other forces.

    Yeah, understanding things like the fact that China (and certainly Russia) know that: “If Russia is overthrown, the West will control all their natural resources, which they see themselves needing as they grew into a giant economy larger than the US.” can be determined by inspection, by anybody thinking about it (see my previous comments to this effect for other articles). This is the ONLY factor guiding US policy toward Russia. The rest of the narrative is a sham put on in order to hide these true motives.

    A topic left out of the analysis is the balance of power in the ME between Sunni and Shiites. Obviously, it would be seen by any objective observer that this would be in US interest to foster a balance between them. But such policy is not on the table because it interferes directly with Israeli designs on Lebanese territories they wish to amass. How do I know this? Maybe the previous 2 invasions of Lebanon, which were stopped by the Iranian trained Hamas could be seen as an indication? Here too, the rest of the policies and excuses, repeated by various administrations and facebook friends alike) are only used to obfuscate the real motives.

    Can’t really buy this silly Deep State propaganda from Mr S. The Berlin Wall collapsed in November 1989. After this the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Cold War was surely inevitable. USMIC needed a new theatre of war in a hurry to keep itself in the style to which it is accustomed. Gulf War I, beginning with the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq in August 1990, was clearly planned in advance in order to install US bases in the Middle East as the ‘pivot’ to use the currently popular term to this new theatre. This long term planning all bore juicy malevolent fruit not long after with 911, Gulf War 2 and the War on Terror. It’s only now, with the Middle East petering out as the preferred theatre of operations that the new pivot is under way with the beatup for a new cold war with China.

    Well he was a west German teenager who flew his Cessna light aircraft straight through Soviet airspace and landed slap bang in the middle of the evil empire in Red Square

    Good point. But Cold War embarrassment for ailing Russia was only half of that. What young Mathias Rust also demonstrated is that Reagan’s Star-Wars ploy was actually a Deep State media hoax invented to defend its own domestic charter myth of an existential threat from an evil foreign empire, Soviet Russia. Despite the Star Wars hype, our deep-staters already knew the Soviet system was on its last leg at that time. Their real concern was how their MIC and banksters could continue to rip off half of all U.S. discretionary spending without some credible foreign threat, preferrably a permanent one.

    When the Soviet collapsed a couple of years later, it was back to the drawing board of imperial balance-0f-power politics, exactly what Pepe Escobar is demonstrating above. The post-Soviet era was an existential crisis, but only for our shadow government. With hard work, they’ve managed in just 30 years to replace the putitive Soviet threat with a bigger one from China. Good work for which ordinary Americans will never stop paying, if they survive. Mission accomplished?

    Are the predatory Pentagon/CIA contractors are now safer, along with our fiat dollar hegemony? Close but no cigar because they have now managed to create the ultimate unbeatable threat by driving Russia and China together. And thanks to our own moneyed zio-faction, the deep-staters have also missed every opportunity to embrace Iran, no friend of Russia and a logical imperial asset since it wants only free trade and sovereignty.

    Meanwhile, as U.S. society disintegrates, what could be better than bringing the imperial divide & conquer strategy home by smearing half the citizenry as potential domestic terrorists and uncorking a bizarre viral “health” & global warming dictatorship. Perhaps that’s our rulers very last option.

    Escobar is right about balance of power geopolitics. Like saddling a tiger, there’s no getting off — probably how many a past empire went out in a blaze of glory. The inherent contradictions in any such strategy eventually become its undoing. In their hubris, deep-stater elitists assume they know just how to manage the whole world. But the real world is self-regulating, and past strengths can easily become current weaknesses in the fullness of time. Official Washington may now be showing us just such a geopolitical pole shift.

    As my previous comments will attest, I don’t necessarily quarrel with these specific assertions or the broad brush approach as a general proposition. In no small part the US went off the geopolitical rails by taking “The End Of History” to mean we had evolved beyond having to learn from history.

    The first point that we make is that it was not Kissinger who created policy for Nixon, but the Deep State. Kissinger was just a messenger boy.

    Beware of this sort of Scooby Doo (as in the Saturday morning cartoon’s reveal.

    Now, China was not a major power in 1972 but it could drain Russia, forcing it to place 400,000 troops on their border. And our Deep State policy worked. We in the Deep State had thought it through, and not Kissinger. . .

    Okay, please note the glaringly obvious IQ test of us, the reader. I was a youngster then and I was able to think through this geopolitical hardball. Any of you who believe Kissinger wasn’t able to and didn’t have been snookered. I guess in the next installment Mr. “S” will tell us Kissinger spent all his time as NSA and Secretary of State begging someone in the Deep State to write his books for him after they had sailed the idiot’s ship.

    Mr “S” would like us to believe the Deep State is unified and wise. Some sort of collective dues ex machina that drops down to save the day. Uh huh. Maybe in his next installment he’ll explain how allowing psychopathic filth like Brennan to drive the bus is all part of The Deep State Plan.

    I’m not going to belabor what I’ve said many times. Suffice it to say, for the US the post-Cold War quarter century plus is a Sad Story. Indeed, it’s downright pathetic. I couldn’t have been the only one to sense trouble when they labelled our high point a moment — as in unipolar moment.

    Putin is making the same choice that the Russians did in the 12th Century. Then Russia was not strong enough to resist both the Catholics in the west and the Mongols in the east. They allowed themselves to be conquered by the Mongols, because the Mongols, as ruthless as they were, were more tolerant of religions and cultures. The Catholics would have totally cancelled Russia as a culture and a country. It took the Spanish Empire (Catholic) less than three years to annihilate the Aztecs and the Incas. There are blacks in South America, because they were needed by the Spanish to service their empire, because the natives were worked to death and were decimated by disease. That is how Russia survives as a country.

    The minute you see an old fart like Henry with Xi, know that the Jews already control him. He cannot crack a fortune cookie unless he gets permission from the Tribe.

    As for this and that alliance, these only happen when the individual states cannot take on an adversary all by themselves. China, Russia and Iran individually cannot cope with the US hence the alliance. Even with the alliance, the three remain weak and unable to confront US power. China especially is the school yard punk.

    Want proof: China would have already invaded Taiwan, another stupid little island full of doggie gourmets. All they do is use up fuel flying around and over the place. They lack the military power to do anything, but more importantly they lack the BALLS. Look what Vlad did with Crimea. Xi, is just a perpetually grinning monkey, the village idiot in a cheap empty suit.

    Ultimately the whole alliance will fall apart. No Russian president is going to allow the Chinese communists or the Mullah’s fanatics to pervert and subvert Russian Christianity. Russia is closer to the West culturally versus having nothing in common with the dog snatchers.

    China is a shit poor country with slums that rival Africa’s. The shining lights and glittering buildings are a FACADE. The place lacks sufficient space to feed their burgeoning population or the resources to attain their fantasies. Ask any Chink in the know, the Government encourages immigration to ease the population strain. Over 3M of them live in the US compared to 72,000 Americans living in China. The Chinese elite have their assets outside China, do anything to get second passports and send their ladies to the US and Canada to drop their litter. How smart does anyone have to be to read between the lines. Like Japan of pre WW2, the country is a rotten dragon fruit. The US just needs to give it a squeeze and China will disappear into the nothingness and zero status it was for 4ooo years.

    Hell, even the China loving stooges, flunkies and CCP ass kissers here on UR don’t live in the place. They hang WHITE !

    The “Deep State” is a more or less meaningless buzzword on a par with Alex “Medicine Man” Jones and his “Illuminati” and it’s getting as dated as that imho.
    WHO are these people, Mr S ? Names, please.

    We are to believe that a long-serving high echelon member in USG professes Christianity in a Gangster Cartel, which is what USG is and the source of the gross immorality, murder, looting, permanent war, occupations which is poisoning the world and has been such for a long time, well over a century …
    Russia, by contrast, is a Christian country.
    And you are fighting it, Mr S, as well as continuing to serve gangsters …

    I’ll admit the jews are a different breed. Their clannishness and lack of common decency toward others is what gets them their untrustworthy reputation. Their business ethics can be summed up as non existent for the most part.

As long as the US’s political class is made up of the absolute worst the country can find, nothing will change. It’s the non jews fully cooperating with the zionists for power, prestige, money and influence that gives the jews their almost monopoly position in the major sectors of the economy.

This would require some form of authority, which means you didnt really have anarchy. Unless and until humanity evolves to a point of universal altruism, you will never have more than short term periods of anarchy in some place or another.

    That US rover on mars right now, Perseverance, and the coaxial helicopter, Ingenuity—they got there on those Russian RD180 engines.

    So did the previous US mars mission in 2011, the Mars Science Laboratory, featuring the Curiosity rover. And so did the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in 2005, and in fact every other US mars mission in between.

    I will note, it is rather ironic that billionaire Elon Musk has been talking a very big game about mars, yet his company’s rockets have never been chosen for any of the Nasa mars missions, only Russian engines.

    These same Russian engines also launch nearly all mission critical spaceflights for USAF and the Defense Department, including all of the secretive X37 ‘spaceplane’ launches, plus all of the state-of-the-art spysats etc. The Russian engines have a 100 percent reliability record in nearly 100 US launches. SpaceX has been chosen for a grand total of three Defense Department launches, none of them expensive sats, just mickey mouse equipment.

    And then there is the International Space Station, which should rightly be called Mir 2, because the functional core of the space station is the Russian Orbital Segment.

    The Russian Orbital Segment (ROS) is the name given to the components of the International Space Station (ISS) constructed in Russia and operated by the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos). The ROS handles Guidance, Navigation, and Control for the entire Station.

    In simple language—THAT is the space station, the add-on modules from the US being completely superfluous.

    And we might also mention that the US has for the last ten years been buying seats on Russian spacecraft to even get to the [Russian] space station. Just in the last few months the SpaceX Crew Dragon has finally come online and that is an excellent achievement—although Nasa is still buying seats on Soyuz, just in case.

    The Boeing Starliner spacecraft is flying with the Russian engines, although not yet with live crew. Good thing there’s a Russian ‘superstore’ for space tech where you can do one-stop shopping, eh?

    I’m not going to get into the Chinese program, which also bought its entire manned space program lock, stock and barrel from Russia. They also bought advanced Russian engines, but unlike the US, they have been able to knock off their own versions [YF100], which now power their big Long March 5 rocket.

    Oh, and the Russians landed their first rover on Mars back in 1971, the first spacecraft to land successfully on another planet.

    On the other hand the Deep State was all in on the deindustrialization of America, the great offshoring of whole industries and the jobs they provided. Offshoring has clearly weakened America’s position as world hegemon.

    There is a difference between a technician and an engineer.

    And no, there is no such confusion from one country to another. In some countries, like the UK, an aircraft mechanic is called an AME [aircraft maintenance engineer]. This has nothing to do with a DIPLOMA engineer who works in design, not maintenance.

    These categories are well-defined internationally by people like UNESCO, which compile these statistics, so there is no ambiguity like you suggest. You can’t be a technician in one country, even if it has the word ‘engineer’ in the job title, and go elsewhere and be an actual mechanical engineer, or aerospace engineer or civil engineer.

    I have first-hand experience with both the Russian and US aerospace engineering community. The Russian education system is second to none [although it is not nearly what it was during the Soviet era], and the engineers are, in my opinion, the best-educated in the world.

    In the US, engineering education is being dumbed down all the time. I happen to have a rather extensive engineering library and I like to buy the latest editions of the standard texts as they come out. With each edition you have less and less mathematical rigor, and more emphasis on using software tools. This is a huge problem, because competent engineering is all about fundamentals and being able to work out on paper and a slide rule even the most complex problems—the Apollo program and Concorde were done exactly like that, and still have not been bettered.

    At the same time, the financialization of higher education in the US has put an engineering education beyond the reach of many ordinary families. And those that do have the money steer their kids into banking and law professions.

    It is not a surprise that Russia does in fact graduate twice as many REAL engineers. And they are very very good. Here is the broader STEM category, which includes things like software ‘engineering,’ as well as these ‘technician’ vocations that you mention.

    This is not as useful a measure as pure engineering, in my view, because it is a kind of catch-all.

    Still we see that Russia, with half the population, is about the same number as the US. China of course is cranking out many more of these STEM people, but they do not yet have the academic depth and rigor of the Russian system. This institutional strength is something that takes a few generations to build up, as graduates become better, and they become teachers, the next generation gets better yet and so on. It is not an instant process, but China is very systematic and determined and they will get there sooner than people may think.

    And finally a word about why it is important to have numbers in terms of hard science intellectuals. It is like society in general—the bottom slice is going to be barely competent; the majority in the middle are going to be average…and the top ten percent are going to be the ones that actually do all of the work, in terms of advancing of the state of the art. And from that top group, only a few INDIVIDUALS are really going to be visionaries that have a chance at transforming the technology and solving the really big problems.

    Obviously if you have a larger pool to start with, you will have more of those key achievers at the top.

Unfortunately we are in a bit of a pickle in that the story presumes that even if we started acting friendly with Russia and China they wouldn’t still want to put huge hurt on us for the last 50 years of American power ruining everything for everyone. The only thing that keeps us in the game is that we have a huge military and a lot of money apparently. That military has been rendered practically obsolete by Russian stand-off missiles and… I doubt anyone thinks the US is going to emerge from all of this with an economy intact.

    At this point, I am just hoping for the collapse of the US government. I can’t see anyone missing it once its gone. It’s time to move on to something new politically. I vote for independent city-state Kingdoms on the North American continent.

    You’re partially correct in that China’s STEM graduates may not have the ‘academic depth and rigor’ of the Russian system but that’s true only for the bottom 80% of the 4.7m STEM graduates in China. The reason has to do with how China’s STEM educational system works which is highly elitist for the top 20% in Tier-1 STEM institutions like Tsinghua but rather egalitarian for the bottom 80% which educates the also-rans in the Polytechnics. This filtering process is done after high school with the gaokao or the National College Entrance Examination whose test scores determine which school Chinese students are qualified to attend. The people who fail to score high on the gaokao then settle for associate degrees at the Polytechnics.

    China views this system as necessary because its industrial economy requires two different career paths for two different academic backgrounds. The associate degree-holders work in the manufacturing sector where they can apply their technical knowledge while the university graduates work in the corporate sector where they can apply their scientific expertise. This was true in the past few decades as manufacturing industries became the dominant sector of the Chinese economy. But as it moves from manufacturing to technology industries, China is now shifting its focus to building up its Tier-1 STEM institutions by funding more R&D and training more PhDs.

OK but you’re gonna have to give us the blueprints and our engineers will take it from there.” When said entrepreneurs accepted that – and there was no way for them to do otherwise -, considering the average Chinese IQ and a long history of technological preeminence until the Manchu decadence, they started digging their own graves.

    Look, I’m not going to waste a lot of bandwidth here on a shrieking retard.

    The FIRST FIVE soft landings on another planet were by the Soviet Union. First was in 1970 on Venus with Venera 7:

    The Venera program established a number of precedents in space exploration, among them being the first human-made devices to enter the atmosphere of another planet [Venera 3 on March 1, 1966], the first to make a soft landing on another planet [Venera 7 on December 15, 1970], the first to return images from another planet’s surface [Venera 9 on June 8, 1975], and the first to perform high-resolution radar mapping scans [Venera 15 on June 2, 1983].

    Mars 3 in 1971 was the first soft landing on Mars. It was also the first rover landed on another planet.

    The Mars 3 lander became the first spacecraft to attain a soft landing on Mars, on December 2, 1971.

    It failed 110 seconds after landing, having transmitted only a gray image with no details.[3] The Mars 2 orbiter and Mars 3 orbiter continued to circle Mars and transmit images back to Earth for another eight months.

    Mars 3 Spacecraft

    The cause of the failure may have been related to the extremely powerful martian dust storm taking place at the time which may have induced a coronal discharge, damaging the communications system. The dust storm would also explain the poor image lighting.

    And yes, it was the Russian RD180 engines that have launched ALL US mars missions since 2005.

    I really have no particular knowledge of the bioscience field, except that I believe the cellular machinery in a living organism is far more complex than any mechanical device that humanity could conceive.

    I believe our knowledge here, unlike physics and math where we are quite competent and understand a big part of it all—in biology we are just starting to scratch the surface.

    When the Genome Project first started the ‘experts’ estimated that humans would end up with about 100,000 genes. The ‘sort of’ final tally turned out to be just 20,000, and is still getting revised. Interesting article here:

    The human genome at 20: How biology’s most-hyped breakthrough led to anticlimax and arrests

    … the genomics community began excitedly placing bets predicting how many genes the human genome would contain. Some bets were as high as 300,000, others as low as 40,000. For context, the onion genome contains 60,000 genes.

    Dispiritingly, it turned out that our genome contains roughly the same number of genes as a mouse or a fruit fly (around 21,000), and three times less than an onion.

    Twenty years ago, the genome hoopla was just huge. Now it has turned out to be a nothingburger—well, at best a glimpse into the void that still contains so much that is unknown.

    This is how western capitalism does Big Science. A lot of the same kind of anticlimax is being expressed now about the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Although it has churned out hundreds of papers, nothing groundbreaking has ever come of it.

    Quantum computing is also turning out to be a nothingburger, as some of us had predicted long ago. But if the point is to sell the sizzle and not the steak, then all of these ‘great’ projects have been a wonderful ‘marketing’ success, with untold millions of trees having given their life for the glossy magazines that breathlessly trumpeted all of this hullabaloo. Only to end up in the landfill.

    So to get back to your question about US pharma ‘scientists’, I would place them just slightly above the municipal sanitation worker that will be emptying my bin tomorrow, in the overall scheme of things. Maybe a better person to ask would be Bill Gates?

He tells Abe to take his boy Issac to an altar and slit his throat and then Yahweh will know Abe loves him (Yahew) more than his boy Isaac. Sick.
    Prior to this Yahew creates man and realizes he goofed up. Instead of manning up to his mistake, he takes it out on mankind, to be specific Adam and Eve. Instead of cursing himself for his screwup, he curses them. He says they are such pieces of dung they deserve to burn and be tortured for all eternity.

    And how good Bezos’ engine will be will be remains to be seen. One thing we know already, it is only a little more than HALF the power of the RD180, and barely A QUARTER of the power of its bigger brother, the RD170/171.

    So yeah, if and when these new engines fly, it will have taken the US only about five decades to catch up. Twenty years since they have been buying the advanced Russian engines, and even have received the key technology and a license to build their own.

    At least the Chinese have already built their own advanced engines based on the same Russian technology, are now building their own space station, and launching it with those advanced engines. Like I said, both the US and China have been given a big boost by Russian space tech.

    Balance of power and arrogant ultimately stupid deep-state strategy stuff? Sure. But don’t count out raw naked short-term greed.

    Agree about the primacy of looting, and that Yeltsin’s Russia was the ideal.

    The WEF/Davos hedge fund types gained power in Russia and looted the place under cover of “Western values”, “free markets”, “neo-liberalism” blah – getting their hands on Russian assets at knock down prices. Once they were finished, there wasn’t much left – with the Russian public left in poverty.

    The US, of course, started as a much richer place (1945) but it’s been getting the same treatment. The same WEF/Davos hedge fund elite are sucking it dry and the public is wondering where its money went.

    That puts present day anti-Russia and anti-China hostility into perspective. They’re the enemy because 1) Putin kicked them out, and 2) China has effectively shut all the usual access points (finance/banking/media/politics/education) preventing them getting their hooks into the place. And that’s apart from China developing into an economic rival to the US rather than remaining a low wage plantation.

    In fact, the non-compliance of Russia and China are such a grave threat to the WEF/Davos crowd (combined with fast declining US power) that they’re probably gearing up to eliminate both countries (WW3).

As is now evident, there is a huge amount of work still required to understand how genes are turned on and off as embryonic cells are transformed via multiple routes into the multiplicity of mature cell types — bone, blood, brain, liver, lungs, etc.

    So, in fact, genomics is a field of enormous scope. For details see Nessa Carey “The Epigenetics Revolution,” an excellent introduction. Also “Junk DNA” by the same author.

    Take a look at Stephen Pinker’s book, Better Angels of our Nature: Why Violence has Declined. He shows that people living in pre-state times (living small tribal communities) were much more likely to die violent deaths then people living within states. Hobbes was right about the State of Nature, except for the living solitary lives bit.

    Oh dear me,all the Chinese have done is take Russian tech and built it themselves,which is what They’ve been doing for decades,so now they can build this stuff themselves,so no need for all those Russian engineers anymore,and yet another reduction in Russian exports,they’ll do the same for defence tech,but Russians will keep convincing themselves they’re the best

    Well the Russian space programme if full of half baked programmes its budget isn’t enough for all those programmes and the money is constantly stolen,still they wont need to worry about spending on the ISS as i believe Russia is leaving and building its own new shiny thing,good luck with that

    But basically this argument over niche markets for Russia miss the point,and the point is for all your arguments about Russian excellence in engineering they still can’t create an economy which is globally competitive,last time i looked Russian industrial/ economic competitiveness was on a level with the Republic of Ireland,about 34th in the world!

    Its corruption level in Russia is very high one of the worst in the world,even Albania does better!

    So its no surprise they can’t build a new cosmodrome without billions been stolen,in fact its no surprise that almost a trillion dollars has flown out of Russia in the last 20 years,and thats why there’s no future for Russia as a global power

    “The US has been following balance of power dreams since 1900 and now it faces economic ruin”.

    While the author has a point, it is important to remember that the high level decision to replace a manufacturing based economy (real) with a service based, financialized economy is at the root of they USA’s problems. Such a policy also renders our military power toothless in any prolonged conflict against a competing manufacturing giant, such as China. American production of fighting equipment, airplanes, tanks… and the fuel to operate all of it, won the war. That manufacturing base is not coming back anytime soon. Instead, rising long term poverty and unemployment, increased violence, global warming and widespread environmental deterioration are our “Free Market” legacy. Its just as well that we will be rendered incapable of fighting a major war. The US military is the single greatest contributor to global warming and environmental destruction on the planet earth. Still the only confirmed existence of life in our solar system, if not the universe.

    A service economy does not generate new wealth, it transfers wealth from service users to service providers. In the stock market, manipulative winners (~10% of traders) transfer wealth from 90% of investors to themselves. Only when you produce something of higher value through farming, mining or manufacturing is new wealth produced. Manufacturing always has the greatest potential for adding higher value.

    No country has the technical-industrial capability of Russia. The US is living on borrowed time. One fine day the Chinese are going to say, ‘guess what, we no longer take dollars—we will take gold or yuan for all the goods you buy from us.’ And they will tell the Arabs they will only pay in gold-backed yuan for oil.

    And what happens then? Who needs to hold US dollars then? And the US finances its multi-trillion dollar deficits how?

    Yawn, yawn…

    That’s actually the most intelligent thing you’ve said all day.

    And btw, speaking of Russian exports, the country totally DOMINATES the huge global market for nuclear energy.

    Over the past five years, Rosatom has quietly cornered the market in nuclear energy, systematically seeking out agreements and contracts with roughly 30 nations interested in the installation of nuclear power plants (NPPs).

    The U.S. Department of Commerce projects \$740 billion in revenue generation from nuclear power technologies between now and 2025.

    With Rosatom boasting no other comparable international competitor, vast swaths of that revenue will be siphoned into the pockets of the Kremlin…

    The strategy has thus far been relatively straightforward. Russia’s nuclear energy program dates back to the advent of nuclear power, and Russia’s state-owned nuclear vendor — Rosatom — is the only company in nuclear capable of offering the “industry’s entire range of products and services.”

    —Butthurt complaint from Stratfor

    Russia is by far the technology leader in CLEAN nuclear energy, having developed a closed cycle system that produces little or no nuclear waste. Which is why dozens of countries are buying.

    Unit 4 of the Beloyarsk nuclear power plant in Russia will be completely switched to uranium-plutonium MOX fuel in 2022, marking an important step towards closing the nuclear fuel cycle, Russia’s Rosatom has announced.

    A closed nuclear fuel cycle will allow the…reuse of used nuclear fuel and minimising radioactive waste.

    Interesting. I looked up that paper and you might want to actually read it and tell us what it says.

    It’s not what you are hoping, unfortunately. The author seems to repeat several times how one particular infographic on Rosatom’s website shows an order portfolio of 36 NPPs, while another infographic on another part of the website shows 35. Woo-hoo! Stop the presses!

    In the report’s conclusion he writes:

    Of the 35 or 36 new reactors which Rosatom claims it is building in other countries, only 26 are covered by officially formalized deals, including the seven under active construction.

    No kidding? I guess that means that the other nine or ten that aren’t yet ‘formalized deals’ are never going to happen? Everyone is just going through the motions of negotiating these very complex deals, which actually take many years of preparation to even start construction, since there are many technical, environmental and feasibility issues that all need to get ironed out in any such huge multi-billion dollar project.

    Ordering and building a nuclear power plant is not like going to walmart and picking up a flat screen tv.

    And even if it does end up being only 26—that is still 26 more than the US!

    Also interesting. The forward to this ‘report’ is written by one Vladimir Milov, who gives his title as ‘former Deputy Energy Minister.’ And if you look him up in wikipedia, he was indeed a deputy energy minister, for a grand total of FIVE MONTHS, back in 2002, lol.

    Also in his wikipedia entry:

    Since 2016, Milov has been actively participating in Alexei Navalny’s presidential campaign. Milov was mentioned as one of the co-authors of Navalny’s platform that was published on December 13, 2017.

    Since October 19, 2019, Milov has been broadcasting a weekly program about international politics, Hugs With Dictators, on his YouTube channel.

    Hmm. Very interesting, no. I wonder which ‘foreign agency’ is paying these clowns to try to smear the world’s biggest nuclear energy company? In any case it is a complete nothingburger. So dig in and enjoy, lol!

    Btw, Rosatom has over 250,000 employees, the largest nuclear energy company in the world—and the most successful and offering the most advanced technology. By comparison, the US biggest nuclear company Westinghouse has 9,000 employees.

    Rosatom headquarters in Moscow

    So we see where some of those Russian engineering graduates are going—as well as into designing those world-leading military and civil aircraft, missiles and armaments, world-leading space technology, ship-building etc. Those are all very major industries, not ‘niches’.

    I wonder what you do for a living? [Besides barfing up trollish nonsense on Unz Review?] As an engineer I can tell you that you obviously have no technical education whatsoever.

    Yes wheat is niche,your gragh shows the EU is much higher in exports, and yet wheat doesn’t even make the top one hundred most important trade exports of the EU,and those exports amount to, 6.2 trillion dollars of goods

    Heres Russian exports top ten as of 2020


    Crude oil ( down 40% at but earning 72 billion dollars)
    Processed petroleum oil
    Unwrought gold
    Wheat ( wheat up 25% earning 7.9 billion dollars )
    Unwrought platinum
    Petroleum gases
    Iron or non alloy steel products
    Refined copper
    Sawn wood

    It’s not exactly inspiring is it!

    I won’t bother with the EU top exports because it’s just more embarrassing for Russia,oh and all it’s best in the world engineers

    Russia has a trade deficit in the following goods amounting to 43 billion dollars,

    Phones and smart phones
    Automobile parts and accessories
    Medication mixes
    Computers/ optical readers
    Blood fractions
    Temperature change machines
    Electro medical equipment
    taps,valves and similar appliances
    Electrical water heaters

    We could go into a further and detailed break down in those deficit area’s like computers,integrated circuits and electronics,but again it’d just be embarrassing and rather humiliating for the Russians

    Russias major export companies are all either gas,oil or mining with only one bank and one chemical company in the top ten basically all either state owned or answerable to Putin!

    So can someone please tell me where all those fabulous engineers work,certainly not in the deficit side of things,which only means either defence,oil/gas/mining,atomic energy,which you can see isn’t even a major export industry ,but forgive me i forgot Russians make hypersonic wiz bangs!

    Look, you cite a lot of crap without giving any sources. Russia’s economy is among the five biggest in the world:

    In fact, revised figures since Covid show Russia has moved ahead of Germany.

    In many ways, Russia’s economy is much larger than these simple measures. For instance, the amount of energy an economy consumes is an important indicator of economic activity [both electrical and petroleum and other energy]. By this measure Russia’s economy is much larger.

    In fact energy use in the US has flatlined for more than ten years now, implying very little real growth in economic activity. Basd on this, and other factors, some economists argue that the real US GDP is less than half of what the ‘statistics’ imply.

    A big factor is debt, which actually counts as GDP. The more borrowing that is going on an economy, the higher the GDP. This is because new money can only come into being as a debt to someone—either to a government, a corporation or an individual. The US is the most indebted nation in the world by far, while using energy at a rate that is a fraction of its supposed economic activity.

    Real economists like Michael Hudson show that the entire financial sector is actually a net negative on the real economy, since it is EXTRACTIVE—unlike production which is the real economy.

    Like I already said, the US is living on borrowed time. It is still able to stay afloat only because the Chinese accept US dollars, which they cannot spend in China, so they must invest those dollars in US government debt, aka Treasury Bills. That’s the only thing keeping Ponzi US solvent.

    As soon as that ends, and it certainly will—all throughout history every country has demanded either its own money for its exports, or gold or silver. In the 19’th century Britain bankrupted itself by buying massive amounts of tea, porcelain and silk from China, which only took silver. The British had no silver and had to get it from Argentina, then the world’s biggest silver producer. That’s why the British started the opium wars against China, to force them to take opium that the British grew on their colonial plantations in India.

    So you see, these tricks only last so long. China’s economy already dwarfs that of the US—it’s industrial output is many times bigger. Russia’s industrial output is very big also, and it has almost no debt. Plus it is a self-sufficient economy, imports and exports only make up between 10 and 15 percent.

    The same is true for China, exports are only about 10 percent of the economy, and most exports actually go to other Asian countries and the EU, so they hardly need the US market. They will fold the US Ponzi Economy as neatly as a cardboard box from UPS when they choose to.

    And just to set the record straight about Russian exports:

    —Russia’s Top Exports

    We see that Machinery and computers is actually in the top five, but completely missing from your make-believe list.

    Another major export is armaments, which is a huge industry for all major industrial countries.

    The US is not ahead by much, considering its large captive market with the Nato countries:


    —The top ten arms exporting countries in 2018

    So we see that your narrative is just wall-to-wall bullshit. You have never actually been to Russia, but keep insulting the entire country like some sort of retard. I have been there many times, and its cities look like gems compared to US cities that look more like Mogadishu.

    Nothing but filth, crime and crumbling infrastructure. By any measure most US inner-city urban centers are third-world standard. Vast armies of homeless people, which are practically nonexistent in Russia.

    Even many working people have to live in their car because they can’t afford rent. Here’s a German Documentary:

    here’s the Moscow subway:

    here’s the New York Subway:

    No wonder Russia has an immigrant population of 12 million. It is an attractive and very livable country. It has great education, a vibrant cultural life and a solid economy with decent living standards for ALL its citizens.

    The US is obsessed with Russia because of the most common reason for such behavior: ENVY.

    As for complete retards like yourself…well who knows what your story is. I have already pegged you for an uneducated person of low socio-economic standing.

    It is you who is trying to pull a fast one by choosing the top ten from a list of the TOP ONE HUNDRED products, which is not valid…because the list of the top ten is is in broad categories that include numerous items listed in that narrower list of 100 products.

    For instance in number 18, we see turbojet engine exports worth two billion dollars. [btw how many turbojet engines does Ireland export?]

    In number 28 we see a billion dollars worth of rubber tires, also cars at number 32, nuclear reactors, automobile parts and accessories etc. All of those kinds of particular things are grouped into the broader heading at the top of the page.

    Anyway, I am truly interested to hear about your ‘occupation’ [perhaps this is it…getting paid by the nickel to write stuff on the internet?]

    They mention a ‘sock puppet sweatshop.’

    Four of his employees, young men who live in the neighborhood, take their stations at long desks that line two walls of the tiny shop, and open up task sheets assigned to them.

    A Google Doc tells each one of them who to follow, who to retweet, what to retweet and what comments to leave on specific posts.

    Using aliases—each worker controls several hundred—they schedule tweets, check engagement stats and, at the close of their shifts, fill up a spreadsheet with their analytics from the previous day.

    Fascinating. Several hundred sock puppet accounts per worker. Man that sounds like a very full day for you guys.

    How much do you actually make? The Newsweek reporter says they didn’t want to give specific numbers.

    He declined to share specific financial details: “I won’t tell you how much we make, but what I will tell you is this setup is feeding all our families. And I don’t have to ever worry about a roof on my head or about paying my children’s’ school fees.”

    Doesn’t sound like a bad deal—at least for India. Of course if you’re working from inside a US state prison, you already get three squares a day, so even a little bit of coin is just gravy?

Are you claiming that was fake and that Russia and China didn’t commence an agreement for 4 Russian developed nuclear reactors – even though China has it’s own self developed nuclear reactors now (though based off former work with France)? Are you denying that Russia and China know how to have mutually beneficial trade and development rather than “winner take all” that “western society” does?
