There’s no question that future unbiased historians will rank Russian President Vladimir Putin’s address on the Return of the Baby Bears – Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia – on September 30 as a landmark inflection point of the Raging Twenties.

The underlying honesty and clarity mirror his speech at the 2007 Munich Security Conference, but this time largely transcending the trappings of the geopolitical New Great Game.

This was an address to the collective Global South. In a key passage, Putin remarked how “the world has entered a period of revolutionary transformations, which are fundamental in nature. New development centers are being formed, they represent the majority.”

As he made the direct connection between multipolarity and strengthening of sovereignty, he took it all the way to the emergence of a new anti-colonial movement, a turbocharged version of the Non-Aligned Movement of the 1960s:

“We have many like-minded people all over the world, including in Europe and the United States, and we feel and see their support. A liberating, anti-colonial movement against unipolar hegemony is already developing in various countries and societies. Its subjectivity will only grow. It is this force that will determine the future geopolitical reality.”

Yet the speech’s closure was all about transcendence – in a spiritual tone. The last full paragraph starts with “Behind these words stands a glorious spiritual choice”.

Post-post-modernism starts with this speech. It must be read with utmost care so its myriad implications may be grasped. And that’s exactly what tawdry Western spin and a basket of demeaning adjectives will never allow.

The speech is a concise road map to how we got to this incandescent historical crossroads – where, to venture beyond Gramsci, the old order refuses to acknowledge its death while the new one is inexorably being born.

There’s no turning back. The key consequence of a largely documented fact – “a hybrid war is being waged against Russia because it stands in the way of the neocolonial world order” – is that Russia is getting ready for an all-out collision with the Empire of Lies.

Alongside top Eurasian powers China and Iran. Imperial vassals in this case are at best collateral damage.

Moreover, it’s quite telling that Putin’s speech followed India’s External Affairs Minister, Dr. S. Jaishankar, stressing the “pillaging of India by the colonial power” at the UN General Assembly.

Putin’s speech and Russia’s resolve to fight the – hybrid and otherwise – war against the collective West set up the Macro Picture.

The Micro Picture regards the see-saw in the battlefields in Ukraine, and even the blow-up of the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 pipelines: a desperate gambit, a few days before the result of the referendums and their official recognition on September 30.

Where’s Osama when we need him?

As working hypotheses swirl on how the deed was done, a few things are quite clear.

Russia had absolutely no motive to destroy billions of dollars of Gazprom’s energy infrastructure: they could always use it as leverage; and they could just turn it off – as they did, because of the sanctions dementia – and re-route the gas to Asian customers.

A White House “led” by a senile teleprompter reader, mired in a black politico-economic void, was most certainly clueless.

The prime suspect is a rogue National Security/State Department faction – part of what is known in the Beltway as The Blob. Call them Straussians or neo-con fanatics, these are the players who are conducting a US foreign “policy” whose central premise is the destruction of Russia – with the European “allies” as collateral damage.

An inevitable – certainly unforeseen – consequence is that in this new twist in the War of Economic Corridors, all bets are off: no pipeline or undersea cable, anywhere in the world, is now safe and may become fair game in retaliation.

So the blow-up of the twin pipes – NS and NS2 – is 9/11 remixed Pipeline Terror. With no Islamist with a Kalashnikov hiding in an Afghan cave to take the fall.

Financial losses will involve quite a few weighty players. The shareholders of Nord Stream AG are Gazprom (51%); Wintershall Dea AG (15.5%); PEG Infrastruktur AG, a subsidiary of E.ON Beteiligungen (15.5%); N.V. Nederlandse Gasunie (9%) and Engie (9%).

So this is an attack not only against Russia and Germany but also against major European energy companies.

NS2 is an engineering marvel: over 200,000 pipe segments coated with 6” of concrete, each weighing 22 tons, laid out on the bottom of the Baltic Sea.

And just when it seemed that all was lost, well, not really. The engineering marvel theme resurfaced: the pipes are so strong they were not broken, but merely punctured. Gazprom revealed there’s an intact string of NS2 that may “potentially” be used.

The bottom line is that reconstruction is possible, as Russian Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandr Novak stressed: “There are technical possibilities to restore the infrastructure, it requires time and appropriate funds. I am sure that appropriate opportunities will be found.”

But first, Russia wants to conclusively identify the perpetrators.

Henry Kissinger, sore loser

US establishment oracle cum notorious war criminal, Henry Kissinger, could not get rid of his trademark Return of the Living Dead act, saying Russia has “already lost the war” because its capacity to threaten Europe with conventional attacks, which it had enjoyed for decades or even centuries, “has now been demonstrably overcome.”

Moscow was not “threatening” Europe with anything conventional or otherwise; it was trying to do business, and the Americans blocked it with a vengeance, even resorting to Pipeline Terror.

This American tactical victory was achieved in only seven months, and cost next to nothing. The results may seem impressive: US hegemony over the whole EU spectrum is now undisputed, as Russia lost its economic leverage. But that will only deepen Moscow’s resolve –as stressed by Putin’s speech – to take the fight against the Empire and its vassals to the limit.

On the Ukraine battlefields, that means forcing them to the negotiating table on Russia’s terms. And then force them to agree to a new European “indivisibility of security” arrangement.

And to think that all that could have been accomplished with a simple phone call in late 2021, when Moscow sent letters to Washington proposing a serious discussion.

In fact, it’s the US that has “already lost the war”: at least 87% of the world – including virtually the whole Global South – has already concluded this is a rogue, rudderless empire.

ORDER IT NOW

“Losing”, Kissinger-style, also means that in only 7 months, Russia annexed 120,000 km2 – or 22% of Ukrainian territory – that produces nearly 90% of GDP and has over 5 million citizens. Along the way, the allied forces basically destroyed the Ukrainian army, which they continue to do 24/7; billions of dollars of NATO equipment; accelerated the demise of most Western economies; and evaporated the notion of American hegemony.

As for Stupidistan Unplugged, the Oscar goes to Secretary Blinken, who gave away the game by saying the blow-up of the twin pipelines was a “tremendous strategic opportunity”.

Just like 9/11 was a “tremendous strategic opportunity” for indiscriminate invasion/bombing/killing/plunder across the lands of Islam.

Shock’n Awe is back

The EU is on the way to surefire Trade Devastation. From now on, any possibility of energy trade with Russia would have to be a consequence of the collapse of both NATO and the EU. That may happen, but it will take time. So what next?

The EU cannot rely on Asia: far away and impossibly expensive in terms of LNG liquefaction and re-gasification costs. Any pipeline – for instance, from Kazakhstan – would be crossing Russia or coming from China via Russia. Forget about Turkmenistan; it already ships its gas to China.

The EU cannot rely on West Asia. Turk Stream is fully booked. The whole production of the Persian Gulf is already bought. If – and that’s a major “if” – there was more gas available, it would be a small amount from Azerbaijan (and Russia might disrupt it). Iran remains sanctioned by the Empire – a fabulous own goal. Iraq and Syria are still plundered by the US.

That leaves Africa – where, as it stands, France is being unceremoniously kicked out, nation after nation. Italy may eventually pipe gas to German industry from Algeria, Libya and the Cyprus-Israel fields. There will be an absolutely mad scramble for Saharan gas fields and gas in central Africa – from Uganda to South Sudan.

The Baltic may be a NATO lake, but Russia could easily decide to make waves, for instance transporting LNG in barges to German ports via Kaliningrad – which is ice-free during winter. If Lithuania would try to block it, Mr. Khinzal could settle the issue by presenting his business card. Russia could also use the Gulf of Finland, not a problem for those massive Russian icebreakers.

This means Russia could easily destroy the competition – as in absurdly expensive LNG coming from the US. After all, St. Petersburg to Hamburg is only about 800 nautical miles; and from Kaliningrad, only 400 nautical miles.

The whole chessboard is about to be radically changed before the arrival of General Winter. 9/11 led to the bombing, invasion and occupation of Afghanistan. Pipeline 9/11 is leading to a Shock’n Awe on NATO – to take place in Ukraine. Blowback is back – with a vengeance.

  1. I dearly hope that Escobar’s forecast is right. But given that The Blob, as he calls it, already blew up the pipelines, what would stop them from blowing up Russian ships or barges filled with LNG? And, even if the damaged pipes could be quickly patched (that’s the first I’ve heard of it), why would Russia fix them if they’d only be blown up again? Seems to me that the war must be concluded in Russia’s favor before any more of its gas makes its way to Germany. Maybe freezing and starving in a long, cold winter (terrible to contemplate) is the only way for Germans, and other Europeans, to realize that Washington is not their friend, but their mortal enemy.

  3. @follyofwar

    Most likely, Russia will want to be indemnified, meaning setting up a mechanism where payment amount is guaranteed against any cause except a natural one. Most people, governments, etc, today do not care about honor, their word, integrity, etc. So, and escrow amount would have to be “fronted” and held by Russia, in case of non payment. Maybe Lloyds of London could insure the deal.

    As a consequence of the actions and inactions of the EU, all future business deals will have to be indemnified, guaranteed for compensation to Russia. This is the same for persons of bad credit ratings.

    You’re glossing a speech that’s pivotal precisely because the Russian head of state came out and said what he thinks. Then why, on the crucial question of responsibility for internationally wrongful acts in breach of jus cogens, would you use all the standard weasel words?

    Rogue faction. of… national security. Slash-something mumble mumble er um.

    Godfuckingdammit.

    First of all, the perp is a rogue state, not a faction. The US command structure is strictly hierarchical. When you have an entity with impunity, they’re not rogue, they’re not out of control, they’re very firmly in control. CIA impunity is there in black and white for you to read since 1947, accreting all the time. The National Security Act, the Central Intelligence Agency Act, The Intelligence Identities Protection Act, the operational files exemption, the political questions doctrine, the state secrets privilege, the utmost deference doctrine, the deference upon deference doctrine, FASAB Standard 56, NSC 10/2, the National Security Directive of December 19, 1947, the Rogers-Huston memo et seq.

    These are the arbitrary life-and-death powers of a premodern Oriental potentate. CIA can kill you and torture you and get away with it, no matter who you are. That means they’re in charge. Piss them off, you’ll see.

    Furthermore, this is not a pluralistic system. CIA does not share or contend for its arbitrary power, it diffuses its agency as it sees fit to escape responsibility for crime. CIA delegates powers to subordinate agencies that it controls with illegal domestic agents termed focal points or dotted-line reports. CDC runs their germ warfare errands. DoD procures their inventory for gun-running. NED does their nonviolent ratfucking. FBI whitewashes CIA’s crimes.

    So in honor of our Fearless Leader Putin let us please have no mealy-mouthed bullshit. Europe is after the saboteurs with the relentless determination of OJ finding Nicole’s killers. Here they are: a dozen SIS pukes in the NHB working for David Marlowe. Hang em high.

  8. Blinken said “strategic” not tactical. That speaks volumes right down to a mushroom cloud.

    My biggest difficulty for the last couple of decades was that I could not believe that (a) certain power could be so stupid. I always convinced myself of the fact that with their wealth of over-educated specialists, surveillance infrastructure and intelligence resources that they could not be so idiotic and are actually outsmarting us.

    But time and time again they proved me wrong. The only answer that I could come up with is that there will always be people who see through these things but they are fewer than 5% of the population, easily surveilled and aborted should the need arise so to the PTB it doesn’t really matter what they say or do.

    Got to love that democracy thingy. Uncle Adi was quoted as saying that “democracy is a system where the opinion of two fools is worth more than that of a wise man”. Clever, but in truth democracy is a system where you can convince the cattle that they are not being fatted for the market because you let them moo, bawl and even kick down the odd fence though they will always be driven back into the corral, usually by force. I am a cattle man and use lots of ruses to keep order. A mob is always a mob, as the Romans well knew. Secure the alphas, stampede the betas, goodies at the trough as a reward for compliance and a salve. Works like a charm each and every time. I run a perfect democracy. I send them to market for profit and eat the best of them but I will never take away the right for them to moo!

    But now I am confused again (back to Blinken). Is everyone on all sides stupid or do we have to play the last minutes of the movie Dr. Strangelove to get a feel for the future?

    Corollary: Are we ALL being played for fools?

    Cheers-

  9. It’s funny.

    The Cold War pitted two sides with some good arguments.

    Individual freedom, free enterprise, liberal democracy.

    vs

    Workers, Comrades, socialism, collective good.

    But the current culture war between East and West is what?

    It comes down to Lunacy vs Common Sense.

    A Man Is a Woman vs a Man is a Man.

    At any rate, whites in the West are such weaklings(or wheaks) that they can’t muster the simple will to say, “Jews, cut it out. That’s just ridiculous.” It is now officially dissident thinking to say a Man is a Man and not a Woman. Such lunacy. ‘Liberals’ need to be called lunatics or lunatists.

    Globo-Homo tranny argument makes it into an issue of subjective realities, whereby the subjective reality of the homo or tranny should have priority over the subjective reality of the straight trad.

    So, if a man says he’s a woman, it’s his subjective reality. And if you say he’s still a man, that’s your subjective reality. But the tranny’s subjective reality should be privileged because he is defining his own identity.

    But it’s not an argument between subjectivity and subjectivity. It’s between subjectivity vs objectivity.
    Whereas the tranny is subjectively calling himself a woman, a sane person who insists he’s a man isn’t offering a counter-subjective argument based on his biases but merely referring to reality, which is objective. A man is a man.

    The rejection of objectivity is what Jews are after. Objectivity means there is a truth and reality higher than what Jews claim. So, all truths must be made ‘subjective’ and then some subjectivities must be favored over others in the name of ‘inclusion’.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-10-03/gazprom-ready-to-ship-gas-via-shelved-nord-stream-2-pipeline

    The vaunted US Navy screwed up. In the murky depths of the Baltic Sea they planted their explosives to blow up the ***FOUR*** pipes of the NS 1 & NS2 gas pipelines. (You didn’t know there were four pipes, did you? Neither did I.) But they appear to have screwed up and placed two of the explosive packages on one of the NS2 pipes — line A — leaving the other pipe — line B — with no explosive charge, and subsequently ***NO DAMAGE***. Line B is therefore ***READY TO GO*** with a capacity of 27.5 billion cubic meters per year … which for comparison is 50% of total capacity of Nordstream 1, which as you may recall was recently reduced to 20% capacity before being shut down completely. (2.75 times the capacity of the newly-opened Norway-to-Poland gas pipeline).

    Gazprom has lowered the pressure in the line, will conduct an inspection, after which Germany can just give the go ahead, flip the switch, be back to 50% of the previous gas supply rate.

    The US thought they would f*ck Germany, but they screwed the pooch.

    Although WestExec does not disclose its list of clients, some have been reported. Its clients include Google’s Jigsaw; Windward, an Israeli artificial intelligence firm; Shield AI, a drone surveillance company;[4] and “Fortune 100 types”.[8]

    Under a financial disclosure filed by the Biden transition team in December 2020, Secretary of State nominee Antony Blinken declared that clients of WestExec included “investment giant Blackstone, Bank of America, Facebook, Uber, McKinsey & Company, the Japanese conglomerate SoftBank, the pharmaceutical company Gilead, the investment bank Lazard, Boeing, AT&T, the Royal Bank of Canada, LinkedIn and the venerable Sotheby’s”. In a similar form, Director of National Intelligence-designate Avril Haines disclosed that WestExec had worked with data-mining company Palantir Technologies.[9]

    In 2017, Blinken co-founded WestExec Advisors, a political strategy advising firm, with Michèle Flournoy, Sergio Aguirre, and Nitin Chadda.[46][47] WestExec’s clients have included Google’s Jigsaw, Israeli artificial-intelligence company Windward, surveillance drone manufacturer Shield AI, which signed a $7.2 million contract with the Air Force,[48] and “Fortune 100 types”.[49] According to Foreign Policy, the firm’s clientele includes “the defense industry, private equity firms, and hedge funds”.[50] Blinken received almost $1.2 million in compensation from WestExec.[51]

    Yes, the Dulles Brothers, not Karl Marx or Hitler, were the true revolutionaries of the XX century. Make a secret empire, get all the bankers in the world to fund because you’re PROTECTING them, and watch it grow.

    During Cold War I at least Russia was in on it, per the movie NETWORK, 1976. Now they are not and commissars no longer bother with Forbes or the Wall Street Journal. The world made more sense then maybe, but it was a hell of a lot safer.

    Whereas 9/11 was primarily a scheme to excuse the further murdering of people, warmongering in the region and the stealing of assets and resources in the Middle East. The Romans did it too – just think of Julius Caesar (Gallic War) or Hadrian (Dacia).

    Domestically, it meant free reign for them – including shamelessly spying on the population and data collecting. Overall a massive abuse of governmental power which hasn’t been fixed to this day.

    Besides, WTC7 housed a number of saucy assets W’s government dearly wanted to disappear. And, finally, the insurance fraud of the century with the *doubly* insured WTC (which only happened very shortly before the false flag) being raised to the ground by the very same US government. Double luck for all involved.

    And since this murderous scam worked out so fine and without any consequence for the (political) criminals committing it it made them even bolder. And that’s exactly what we’ve been seeing for the last 20+ years – (deep) state criminality going through the roof. Maybe a “bit” less so under Trump. Which isn’t really that much to be honest.

    “ but in truth democracy is a system where you can convince the cattle that they are not being fatted for the market because you let them moo, bawl and even kick down the odd fence though they will always be driven back into the corral, usually by force.“

    A great caricature of our so called democracy. People, by and large, never figured out the difference between democracy and a republic. In a democracy the people should vote directly on important issues and stick to the decision of the majority especially on such matters as taxes and war. In a modern day republic, the people vote for representatives who end up serving the moneyed people who paid for their elections and they will be bribed to pass the laws that suits that same class that put them in power. Moreover, in a republic, anyone lying his way into office and reneging on his electoral promises, is never subject to prosecution. The U.S. history is full of examples of “No new taxes”, “No new wars”, “No foreign entanglements”…and most of them are backed by the guarantee of “ Read my lips”.

    The US has developed a weapons-grade laser that can be mounted on aircraft and is capable of attacking targets over a hundred kilometers away. It’s possible that the US used such an aircraft-mounted laser to burn a hole through the hull of the Moskva and ignite the fire that sank the ship.

    As my previous comments attest, sometimes timing is everything. This is one such occasion.

    Set aside for the moment the whole of medium and longer term projections because immediate turns of the screw are being driven by the short window we are in until the US midterms have passed, ominously, one way or another.

    My view was that the raid on Trump and Biden’s “Red Speech” were equally for both domestic and foreign consumption. The latter as a dog whistle to the EU to follow the illegitimate Biden regime’s lead in intimidating and suppressing domestic dissent through a heavy hand if need be. With a promise of a pass for those meeting the terms of the US crafted “our democracy!” brand.

    I now think a foreign green-light was the primary purpose for the simple reason that domestically these moves were counter-productive to mitigating Democrat losses in the Midterms as well as bolstering their RINO filth controlled-opposition in vanquishing Trump and MAGA.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, the National Security State is insistent that everyone must take one for the team. Not just the citizenries of vessel states. Elected leaders too must “Let go, let God . . . ” Just with the Imperial Blob is place of the real deal.

    Democrats are natural Leninists. In other words, they take to Democratic Centralism like a fish to water. I can’t be the only one who noticed that the vaunted anti-war left, having had its little red wagon fixed by Obama, has been wholly supportive of giving the Kiev regime every penny and weapon “Biden” and Mitch are sending. Say what you will, at least they got the lovely AOC and her square to shut up about something.

    The pipelines attack was to keep Germany from concluding a sanctions carve-out for the NordStreams with Russia. Any reasonably intelligent middle schooler can figure that out. Which is why all concerned consider the question tiresome. In hindsight, both German and Russian actions to delay and restrict gas flow, under various pretexts, were in furtherance of keeping the USG from following through on its threat.

    Just accept that the Biden regime was desperate to keep this chart looking okay until the midterms are over:

    Russia has been almost universally adjudged a poor performer in the Information War. I emphatically disagree. Setting aside its kicking ass with BRICs and so much more, it’s threaded a needle at least so far in terms of the narratives foisted on Americans. Understand, it’s impossible to overstate how dangerous this period until the midterms are over is for the entire globe. Russia has used the desperation in the USG to not have to admit the greatest foreign policy debacle since Vietnam (at least) to achieve its objectives in the Ukraine. Yet it knows if it pushes too far before the election the Biden regime will use the pretext of Russian retaliation against CONUS infrastructure to cancel or delay the midterms and initiate a ‘Pearl Harbor’ moment guaranteeing a fast track to world war.

    I think this explains Russia ceding territory in the Little Bears right as they’re to ascend to mother Russia. This allows the Biden regime et. al. to claim for the next month that Russia is losing or at least stalemated. We should all hope it’s enough to get us through the next month without further events that will take all of us from the frying pan into the fire.

The invocation of General Winter coming once again to rescue the Russian army from defeat seems to ignore that the Ukrainians fought in all those wars and live in that winter every year. The US controllers are very happy to have Russia drained by Ukrainian blood and European money, which they pay to the US for all these overpriced weapons etc. The US wins in every way. Blowing up the pipeline was a nice chess move that wins for the US all the way around. Pipelines have always been vulnerable when not defended, which Russia and Germany obviously failed to do. Pretty stupid if indeed the pipeline was so important, which it wasn’t. Also, it can be repaired or rebuilt if desired after a delay. Putin, who I admire as man of great accomplishment and logical thinking has made a huge blunder by the unnecessary invasion. All he needed to do was what he had been doing and he would have been fine as would the rest of Russia. Now the USA has benefited greatly by the counter moves made possible by Putin’s starting the war. Your hyperbole about the 9/11/01 attack and the pipeline is ridiculous.

    In the meantime Putin is clearly in control ! Our fearless leader Field Marshal CornHole is sending another $625M to the Z and has promised whatever it takes for a Russian defeat. I imagine the majority of this aid is collecting interest Offshore. In the meantime Americans are sucking salt.

    Like the owner of a crumbling old house, the Z needs more and more money to keep the place from collapsing. The problem is that after renovation after renovation he is still left with an old house. The money pit swallows up good money chasing the bad money.

  62. I think the pipeline bombing was rushed because unexpectedly, Germany and Russia were coming to a concession to resume Nordstream oil delivery. Usually, the Anglosphere will patiently set a narrative and let the media play it out for months or years before doing it. Then it will be easier to pin the blame on Russia. I believe it was a rush job.

    Small correction, Karl. At the time of the destruction of the nation of Dacia, Hadrian was merely the commander on the spot. His orders came from his somewhat distant Spanish-born relative, who was the Emperor at the time.

    Later, Hadrian himself was declared Emperor and he set about to halt the imperialist expansion and to reform virtually every aspect of the Roman Empire. His grandson, Marcus Aurelius, was cut from the same mold. Both of those Emperors achieved the very highest pinnacle of Roman statehood, as they cleaned up many of its bloodthirsty horrors.

    Here’s a quick way for Germany to get enough gas…takes 60 days to set it up. NS2 starts in Gulf of Finland, think Vyborg, RU. Ends at Lubmin, Germany. Not far apart, maybe 300 miles. So let one of the Baltic Four (Finland, Latvia, etc.) offer to build a few big LNG barges and do a shuttle. Once on the barge the middleman owns the gas, so… The transport company could make quick money. Most of the infrastructure is there. Lubmin cant take deep draft vessels, but barges are shallow-draft. Heck, it could be an Ru company doing biz as a shell!

    Western Ukraine is more rural and poorer with their economy mostly agricultural.

    Eastern Ukraine produces coal, steel, gas, equipment parts, weapons etc. and is more populated. Kiev has a high GDP but one I suspect is mostly service centered. East Ukraine can grow food but West Ukraine cannot grow coal, gas etc. Hence the hog’s share of GDP is in the East.

    If Vlad splits Ukraine from Kiev to Kherson and controls everything east of the Dnieper River then West Ukraine is fucked and Kiev in spite of its higher individual GDP is isolated.

    With control of the River, control of the Sea of Azov and Crimea, the port of Odessa becomes an after thought and West Ukraine is landlocked. Vlad can strangle all commerce up and down the Dnieper and what goes in and out of Odessa AKA taxes on imports and exports.

    My feeling is West Ukraine would require massive loans from the Eu to restructure and survive. As you well know, friendship is one thing but when it comes to money the borrower is always at a disadvantage. In this case, Western Ukraine would be the bone among the dogs with Vlad’s pliers and blowtorch on everyone”s nuts.

    Engineering is an acknowledgement of human ignorance and frailty.

    The general rule is to build to theory, then beef it up a bit.

    You always build redundancy into a system, because you never have complete understanding of nature and failure mechanisms. That’s why the parallel pipelines that are apparently built into NS and NS2.

    Granted, some systems don’t do that, and come to bad ends. The Boeing Airbus 737-800 Airbus crash was caused by the designers, who gave the aircraft a single pitot tube. When the tube was blocked, the 737 didn’t know how fast it was going, and it crashed (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birgenair_Flight_301).

    The Memphis bridge crack (https://www.cnn.com/2021/08/02/us/memphis-hernando-desoto-bridge-reopen/index.html) very nearly dumped the bridge into a blocking position in the Mississippi River. One box girder in tension cracked (A Griffith crack cause by vibration from traffic) and it was only supreme good luck that the added tension on the box girder’s twin (on the other side of the bridge) didn’t fail, as it was operating under considerably more than its design load for several months, a condition that accelerates crack formation and propagation.

    So, no, an exemption from deliberate attack would not eliminate the need for parallel pipelines in NS and NS2.

    And, by other arguments, it seems likely to me that the close call under unknown attackers will cause the Germany government to open the North Stream pipelines, even if the US forbids the opening. “Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you have ’till it’s gone”, as the song says, and the knowledge tends to remain even after a miraculous restoration.

  101. @Rahan

    I’m frustrated about this too. I saw a bunch of stuff in the early days with the number for the Russian speaking Oblasts being somewhere north of 70%, but they seem to be memory holed. Of the Western Oblasts Agriculture is king and Kiev makes up about half of their GDP, by Gross Domestic Production they mean Gross Domestic Spending: I don’t think many Americans think of DC as a Production center. The East was the Industrial hub but that was where the Ukes holed out and I assume they’re largely destroyed. I also assume the Russians will rebuild the East faster than NATO rebuilds the West.
    Wiki’s got some stuff on this but they’re unreliable on these types of topic. Here’s a top level one pager confirming the blindingly obvious.

  102. Biden and the JEW/WASP Ruling Class of the American Empire have ruled out a ban on natural gas exports from the USA.

    Natural gas prices in the USA will remain artificially elevated because the JEW/WASP Ruling Class of the American Empire wants to muscle out the Russians in the European energy market and the ruling class wants to crush the Germans and other European nations.

    How much of a premium will Germany and other European nations pay for USA natural gas as opposed to Russian natural gas?

    The USA should ban the export of natural gas so as to keep prices lower for American businesses and American citizens.

    I said in a comment on Sep 27th that the reason that there were a large number of P8s in the air off the US Coast had something to do with US suspicions that Belgorod had put to sea, ‘destination CONUS’.

    Monitoring submarines is difficult once they submerge below the point where they can be detected from the magnetic signature of the hull. It becomes impossible if the sub can get into genuinely deep water.

    Belgorod can carry 6 of the new Poseidon nuclear-capable submarine drones. Even a conventionally-armed Poseidon is a carrier-killer, and is also capable of causing a tsunami if detonated in the ‘right’ location (taking into account the underwater topography).

    I keep running into this 90% of GDP claim.

    The claim is false.

    It does not withstand ten seconds’ scrutiny.

    Anybody who makes the claim is either
     • ignorant; or
     • knows full well
        that it’s false.

    A third possibility exists: that they don’t care if it’s true. They’re bullshitting, which is very distinct from lying.

    Whether the person making the claim is ignorant, wilfully lying, or bullshitting, they mark themselves as an unreliable source. When it’s something that can be so easily checked, it’s a very bad sign.

    I mentioned the obvious falsity of the claim in a comment made on the 26th of March, that fully ⅓rd of the GDP of Banderastan is generated by the aid-laundering welfare-sinkhole of Keeeeeeev (the oblast):

    over a quarter (27%) of Ukrainian GDP is attributable to Keeeeev (the city, not the oblast) and a further 6%-ish is attributable to the rest of Keeeeeev (the oblast, not the city).

    People forget that the government-heavy parts of any country contribute disproportionately to GDP, because GDP includes government spending.

    The 4 ‘baby bears’ do account for a very large proportion of the total industrial output of 404 – which is a much more important metric for determining a region’s ability to feed itself without relying on handouts.

    Can anyone give a link or something?

    Banderastan Regions by Gross Regional Product 2020 (Wikipedia, sourced from UKRStat)

    The only Industrial Production by Region data I’ve been able to find in a half-decent form is quite old (from 2013), but gives the appropriate flavour.

    See the first table in this webpage.

    Bear in mind that Keeeeeev is still overstated, because in every modern economy a lot of ‘services’ production is a series of grifts on the central government. In Australia, for example, the city of Canberra punches weill above its population-based weight, solely because of all the services furnished to ther Federal government.

    Of course it goes without saying that anything provided to government should not count as private sector activity, even if the firm producing it is not a government enterprise. (For that reason I don’t consider Raytheon to be a ‘private’ firm. It’s not engaged in private sector activity: it is part of the Parasitic State)

    hard to say for sure on that one, but I do agree with the general consensus that they are going to do anything and everything to prevent close economic (and therefor cultural and other) ties between the nations they hate the most; Germany and Russia.

    My hope of course, is that they push Germany and the rest of Europe too far, to the point that the people are starving and freezing, it that’s what it will finally, FINALLY give them the sand to dump the Zio-vassals that are leading their nations to ruin.

    When the diversity in London is venturing out into rural Britannia in search of food, once the lights go out, and the British people know what, (and who they mean by food), then, perhaps then, they’ll think back at Enoch Powell, and their folly for not heeding his warning.

    But wonder even then. I imagine a British countryside where the diversity shows up, and tells the family that for now, they only require little Sam, and then they’ll leave the others be, and move on.

    What you describe is a Hobbesian world that contradicts the Greek philosophy about the governance of the aristocrat. An aristocrat, according to the original sense, is someone who possesses wisdom and integrity. Nowadays, aristocracy is more associated with power and money.

    In an ideal world, there is no coercion for the sake of submission to authority, be it a republican one or any other. The citizen of middling intelligence seeks council from the true aristocrat and choses to act in whichever way he likes, as long as he is not infringing on other people’s rights. That concept should not necessarily lead to the legal system as we know it. Legality as imposed by the legislative branch of a republican government emanates largely from lawyers or fortune seekers who have little experience at running productive enterprises. I would prefer to replace legality with ethics emanating from divine spirituality that sees in the other a brotherly cooperator rather than a competitor and where any decision to be considered is to be thought of in terms of how would it be beneficial to the other, individually or collectively, before weighing how it is good for me.

    That would be humankind’s salvation from authority as we know it, which is nothing more than an equation based on force where the reason of the stronger is always the better. This is one of the most important tenets of the a Treaty of Westphalia that moved Europe from the era of suicidal wars into an era of relative peace and prosperity.

    The “Hobbesian world” that you reference is his nightmare,a scenario of disorder in which no one is safe. Hobbes advocated that citizens sacrifice some of their liberty in return for the government’s promise to preserve order.Of course Hobbes was,in a sense the “kept man”of the Cavendish Family
    and Charles II,but this does not detract in any way from the validity of his arguments,as some have implied.

    Three hundred years after Hobbes we are still debating the question of how much liberty we are willing to give up to preserve order.Unfortunately,it appears that money and power,with the help of their ugly progeny,violence,will decide the outcome.
