It should come as no surprise that many observers, from various political perspectives, are beginning to note that there is something seriously disconnected in the fumbling foreign policy of the United States. The evacuation failure in Afghanistan shattered the already waning self-confidence of the American political elite and the continuing on-again off-again negotiations that were by design intended to go nowhere with Iran and Russia provide no evidence that anyone in the White House is really focused on protecting American interests. Now we have an actual shooting war in Ukraine as a result, a conflict that might easily escalate if Washington continues to send the wrong signals to Moscow.

To cite only one example of how outside influences distort policy, in a phone call on February 9th, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett advised President Joe Biden not to enter into any non-proliferation agreement with Iran. Biden was non-committal even though it is an actual American interest to come to an agreement, but instead he indicated that as far as the US is concerned, Israel could exercise “freedom of action” when dealing with the Iranians. With that concession has ended in all probability the only possible diplomatic success that the Administration might have been able to point to.

The Biden Administration’s by default global security policy is currently reduced to what some critics have described as “encirclement and containment.” That is why an overstretched US military is being tasked with creating ever more bases worldwide in an effort to counter perceived “enemies” who often are only exercising their own national sovereignty and right to security within their own zones of influence. Ironically, when nations balk at submitting to Washington’s control, they are frequently described as “aggressors” and “anti-democratic,” the language that has most particularly been used relating to Russia. The Biden policy, such as it actually exists, appears to be a throwback to the playing field in 1991-2 when the Soviet empire collapsed. It is all about maintaining the old American dream of complete global dominance coupled with liberal interventionism, but this time around the US lacks both the resources and the national will to continue in the effort. Hopefully the White House will understand that to do nothing is better than to make empty threats.

Meanwhile, as the situation continues to erode, it is becoming more and more obvious that the twin crises that have been developing over Ukraine and Taiwan are “Made in Washington” and are somewhat inexplicable as the US does not have a compelling national interest that would justify threats to “leave on the table” military options as a possible response. The Administration has yet again responded to Russian moves by initiating devastating sanctions. But Russia also has unconventional weapons in its arsenal. It can, for starters, shift focus away from Ukraine by intervening much more actively in support of Syria and Iran in the Middle East, disrupting feeble American attempts to manage that region to benefit Israel.

According to economists, Russia has also been effectively sanction-proofing its economy and is capable of selective reverse-sanctioning of countries that support an American initiative with any enthusiasm. Such a response would likely hurt the Europeans much more than it would damage the leadership in the Kremlin. Barring Russian gas from Europe by shutting down Nord Stream 2 would, for example, permit increased sales to China and elsewhere in Asia and would inflict more pain on the Europeans than on Moscow. Shipping US supplied liquid gas to Europe would, for example, cost more than twice the going rate being offered by the Kremlin and would also be less reliable. The European NATO members are clearly nervous and not fully behind the US agenda on Ukraine, largely because there is the legitimate concern that any and possibly all options being considered by Washington could easily produce missteps that would escalate into a nuclear exchange that would be catastrophic for all parties involved.

Apart from the real immediate danger to be derived from the fighting currently taking place in Ukraine, the real long-term damage is strategic. The Joe Biden Administration has adroitly maneuvered itself into a corner while America’s two principal adversaries Russia and China have drawn closer together to form something like a defensive as well as economic relationship that will be dedicated to reducing and eventually eliminating Washington’s assumed role as the global hegemon and rules enforcer.

In a recent article in the New Yorker foreign affairs commentator Robin Wright, who might reasonably described as a “hawk,” declares the new development to be “Russia and China Unveil[ing] a Pact Against America and the West.” And she is not alone in ringing the alarm bell, with former Donald Trump National Security Council (NSC) Russia watcher Anita Hill warning that the Kremlin’s intention is to force the United States out of Europe while former NSC Ukrainian expert Alexander Vindman is advising that military force be used to deter Russia now before it is too late.

Wright provides the most serious analysis of the new developments. She argues that “Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, the two most powerful autocrats, challenge the current political and military order.” She describes how, in a meeting between the two leaders before the Beijing Olympics, they cited an “agreement that also challenges the United States as a global power, NATO as a cornerstone of international security, and liberal democracy as a model for the world.” They pledged that there would be “No ‘forbidden’ areas of cooperation” and a written statement that was subsequently produced declared that “Russia and China stand against attempts by external forces to undermine security and stability in their common adjacent regions, intend to counter interference by outside forces in the internal affairs of sovereign countries under any pretext, oppose color revolutions, and will increase cooperation.” Wright notes that there is considerable strength behind the agreement, “As two nuclear-armed countries that span Europe and Asia, the more muscular alignment between Russia and China could be a game changer militarily and diplomatically.” One might add that China now has the world’s largest economy and Russia has a highly developed military deploying new hypersonic missiles that would give it the advantage in any conflict with NATO and the US. Both Russia and China, if attacked, would also benefit because they would be fighting close to their bases on interior lines.

And, of course, not everyone agrees that nudging the United States out of its self-proclaimed hegemonic role would be a bad thing. Former British diplomat Alastair Crooke argues that there will be perpetual state of crisis in the international order until a new system emerges from the status quo that ended the Cold War, and it would be minus the United States as the semi-official transnational rules maker and arbiter. He observes that “The crux of Russia’s complaints about its eroding security have little to do with Ukraine per se but are rooted in the Washington hawks’ obsession with Russia, and their desire to cut Putin (and Russia) down to size – an aim which has been the hallmark of US policy since the Yeltsin years. The Victoria Nuland clique could never accept Russia rising to become a significant power in Europe – possibly eclipsing the US control over Europe.”

What is happening in Europe and Asia should all come down to a very simple realization about the limits of power: America has no business in risking a nuclear war with Russia over Ukraine or with China over Taiwan. The United States has been fighting much of the world for over two decades, impoverishing itself and killing millions in avoidable wars starting with Iraq and Afghanistan. The US government is cynically exploiting memories of old Cold War enemy Russia to create a false narrative that goes something like this: “If we don’t stop them over there, they will be in New Jersey next week.” It is all nonsense. And besides, who made the US the sole arbiter of international relations? It is past time Americans started asking what kind of international order is it that lets the United States determine what other nations can and cannot do.

Worst of all, the bloodshed in Ukraine has all been unnecessary. A little real diplomacy with honest negotiators weighing up real interests could easily have come to acceptable solutions for all parties involved. It is indeed ironic that the burning desire to go to war with Russia demonstrated in the New York Times and Washington Post as well as on Capitol Hill has in fact created a real formidable enemy, tying Russia and China together in an alliance due to their frustration at dealing with a Biden Administration that never seems to know what it is doing or where it wants to go.

  3. Mackinder is rolling in his grave. Bismarck is shaking his head back and forth. Castelreagh and Talleyrand are spitting out their snuff.

    Where the hell are the adults in the Di\$trict of Corruption.? Well, they’re in on the take, getting sicky rick while technically “public servants” (think Fauci and the Bidens plus the Clintons)…and the whole lot of them taking orders originating with the ruling Rottenchild and Rottenfeller Crime Clans.

    Because he wishes to be able to keep prognosticating to a bit of a public, Giraldi is a bit conservative in his approach, polite, even, gentlemanly in discourse. By contrast, many of here who post on Unz, are up-front and, frankly my dear, don’t give a damn. Some are even outrageous. On occasion I can confess: “Mea Culpa”. Like Thoreau stated, however, somewhat paraphrased: “there’s no sense in hacking away at the branches, you gotta get it at the roots and grub them out. ”

    It’s the Bank\$ters, stoopid.

    Then we can take a cue from Eldridge Cleaver. He must have read James Baldwin (with his titular “Go Tell it on the Mountain”. The Black Panther Party founder had his own way of telling it: “If you ain’t part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.”

    I cherish Unz Review as just about the last public forum still standing. Tragedy, that. The Yahoo message boards were a great place for me to cut out another whole one on those Sayanim and Hasbarfas who slithered their way to blaming the Palestinianrefugees for the Zionist State’s bloodthirsty, genocidal “Cast Lead” assault on the hapless refugees from Hagannah terror during the time of their people’s tragic Nakba.

    But then Yahoo got absorbed by another of those Tribe-owned conglomerates and here we are…relative voices in the wilderness.

    Meanwhile, the utterly corrupted and controlled MainScream media of misdirection, misinformation and generalized mindfuckery, carefully adhere to the Bernays/Goebbels doctrines of tell a big lie, tell it often and monopolize the message and the normies and Normas swallow it like fresh milk right outta the teat.

    Polls say that 85% of the “Murrikkkan” people think Putin is the next Hitler. They are fed barf and garbage and they regurgitate barf and garbage. What’s more polls lie like the rest of the fakenews media.

  4. The United States has been fighting much of the world for over two decades, impoverishing itself and killing millions in avoidable wars starting with Iraq and Afghanistan.

    In his own current and companion essay here, Michael Hudson made me understand how this was arranged. He describes three US power centers (America’s Three Oligarchies).

    Military-Industrial Complex — (MIC)
    Oil Gas and Mining — (OGAM)
    Finance, Insurance and Real Estate — (FIRE)

    These groups naturally interlock because their control is by the same groups of Super-Rich, who also own the Zionist/Corporate Media.

    Because the Apartheid state had the ability to steer the wrecking crews, it naturally chose its enemies for violent destruction.

    Russia was a very large prize, and I’m still not sure how the above outfits bungled that operation. The answer might be as simple as excessive arrogance and greed. Plus of course a physical invasion wasn’t practical – Russia had nuclear weapons even at its lowest point.

    Big Money from the named groups can buy our Elected Representatives, and the no-verify touchscreen computer voting machines will both facilitate that process and keep them in power. Altering the situation in the US may be even more difficult than Russia’s project of removing the Nazis in Ukraine, for we-the-peasants don’t really have any levers of power anymore.

  5. Bolteric says:

    That’s about right.

    After reading most of the anti-war articles on this site I was pulling for Russia to win this one. Oddly, after reading Giraldi’s, I’m thinking wait if that happens then the US will be considerably less powerful?! Perhaps defending Israel is the cost of doing business? Is the global economy a zero-sum game?

  7. Dangerous alliances for whom? US hegemony? The biggest threat to world peace in the last few decades has been America. Its actions created the refugee waves in the Middle-East which have been destabilising Europe.

    The current crisis in Ukraine is also largely the fault of the West, particularly the relentless NATO expansion and the refusal to meet Russia halfway through a diplomatic dialogue which pushed Moscow into a corner.

  8. There was a lot of work put in this in the last decades: put the European on their knees, prevent them from joining the Eurasian block and be prosperous and happy. Job well done, especially in Ukraine since Georgia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia mainly failed, unfortunately. Ukraine is a total success: our boys and the Brits were awesome.

    I hear France is following thru, literally and openly supporting nazis against Russia with their own army. That was gorgeous ! We didn’t expect as much but you know: gift-horse .. mouth…

    With any luck, they will have a hot war on their hands and once they’ re finished vitrifying each other, the remaining living will be ready to welcome us with open arms, maybe another round of Marshall plan, with more indoctrination to dump on their kids and a new era for fiat money, digital or otherwise. Plus we might recycle a few thousand bombs on the way to liberating them, level another few hundred towns in France or Italy, we could do with some new markets.

    Worked quite well last time.

  9. JWalters says:

    Unfortunately, Washington is populated with oligarchy puppets. The same US/UK oligarchs who lied Americans/Brits into wasteful (profitable for them) wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lybia, Syria, and Vietnam, recently set up Ukraine as a staging area to attack Russia next. They toppled the democratically elected president in their 2014 coup, and followed with a military build-up. They want the vast Russian natural resources, and to subjugate the Russians like they are subjugating the Americans and British (and Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, French, and Germans). Russia is taking out the military buildup to prevent their attack. They’re not interested in taking over Ukraine.

    “Neocons” in Congress and the press are demanding we attack Russia, because that was the Zionist oligarchs’ plan all along.

    The oligarchs’ media is flooded with disinformation. Putin’s rational and calm speech is called “irrational” and “angry”. Russia’s two requirements – Ukraine being neutral and demilitarized – are barely mentioned.

    Given the above, Putin understands what is happening, and is taking a stand against these oligarchs (as he did against the oligarchs who plundered the collapsed Soviet Union).

    Rationally, the lied to, bankrupted, manipulated people of the western “democracies” should hope Putin ends the 1984 dystopian reality we are living in. Ultimately, this latest flood of MSM disinformation from the “empire of lies” should be turned against these criminals. Along with their lies about Covid, Iraq, Afghanistan, 9/11, RFK, JFK, etc.

    There is no sane reason for this phony adversarial relationship between the US and Russia. It is all due to the interference of our war profiteering oligarchs. Here’s a brief perspective on Russia from the American, French, & Russian Vladimir Pozner.
    “Will negotiations stop Russia from invading Ukraine?”

    Many facts not available on the western oligarchs’ mainstream media are on the up-to-date livestream from RT.

  10. Any entity unhappy with the NWO will have to be aggressive enough to stand up against it, as it were. However, apart from that, that entity will have to have an alternative business case in place, because that is what will be needed to convince those power brokers working outside the current realm.

    Because just like Apartheid South Africa, Russia will win the battle, but where SA submitted itself to a NWO against its best interests, it did not have a viable business alternative.

    Nietzsche once said words to the effect that the desire to rush into battle could be a sign of cowardice. It certainly fits the hostile elite. Because those who have the burning desire to go to war are exactly the ones who won’t do the fighting and dying.

    It’s also worth adding that those same people hate America in general and white Americans in particular (probably even the ones who vote the way the hostile elite want them too). And that includes many in the military. The same military the elite would like to send to Ukraine or Russia, or wherever, to fight their wars for them.

    Unlike the hostile elite in the United States, and the entire Western world for that matter, Putin and Xi do not hate their people or their military. And, for the most part, the feeling is pretty mutual. And yet, in spite of all of this, the hostile elite is still pushing for war while blaming Putin and Americans who don’t agree with them.

    Conclusion: The mind of the hostile elite is literally insane.

    No wonder they’re so sensitive to criticism. A sign that even they know that treason against them would be loyalty to humanity.

    The Jewnighted States of Israhell want to provoke a Russian nuclear strike.
    Will Jews & hyenas succeed in the nuclear strike that will “save” them?
    They ultimately need a nuclear war because otherwise their unique world crimes will come to light. The perpetration for the planned killing of the people by injecting vaccine poison, the robbing of mankind by their world financial bubble system, all this must not penetrate into the consciousness of the masses, hence also the massive censorship in the “free West”; (e.g. EUSSR).

    Russia!
    Never lose a war against this system, because they will defame you as evil, and accuse you of wanting world domination, …and they will accuse you of a Jew extermination!

    Their religion is based on bloodshed and blood sacrifices of goyim, so why would they really want to negotiate to stop the bloodshed?

    Current year 2022 has the numerology of six (2+2+2=6) and is a very special year for the Jewish Oligarchs. The ritual slaughter of goyim is going as planned and on schedule for Purim on March 16 and 17, 2022.

  14. The US of Annialation grows up to be a ravenous shark, where every day is a feeding frenzy.

    For a nation that had the potential to be one of the greatest of history, a tragic loss.

    With the threat of nuclear war, a tragic loss not only for the world, but is the world.

    Consider that Putin may have staged the Russia-destructive level of this invasion, to covertly benefit George Soros and their friend Klaus Schwab, whom Putin has lavishly praised … the below from 4chan /pol/

    [MORE]

    There is a thoughtful consensus building that this is a ‘kosher sandwich’ war, with Putin himself either badly advised or accepting to be the ‘bad guy’ and take the fall

    Soros and globalist billionaires are highly linked to both Putin and Zelensky via the Chabad rabbis, essentially Mossad, and you will notice these powerful Jewish groups did nothing to prevent the invasion, they didn’t stop Zelensky from shelling and killing Russians, and did not stop Putin from mobilising a giant occupying force

    The purpose of Putin’s extreme and rather clumsy actions, being firstly to bring down white nationalism and traditional culture in Russia, by impoverishing Russian people so badly, they will accept a Soros-approved replacement for Putin after the war wrecks their society, the new regime much more LGBT etc

    And then the EU can outlaw trad cultures in Poland, Hungary etc … forcing them to go LGBT and pro-migrant … with the new theme that ‘right-wing nationalists’ are intrinsically ‘aggressors’, and the only permitted government is no-borders, migrant-inviting LGBT Trotskyism protected by vicious censorship

    Putin should have limited himself to rolling into the actually ‘Russian’ East Ukraine, stopping any attacks on these Russians, and freeing up the Crimea waterway (which he should have done 8 years ago actually)

    But instead Putin is doing a ham-handed full-scale imperialist take-over, intrinsically bound to end badly … as dumb as when Adolf rolled into Prague in March 1939, sparking the panic leading to WW2 six months later … both using the same excuse ‘I have to occupy next door country X because it could be used as a base against me’

    The analysis is quite thorough, yet it lacks two essential economic points. 1 Capitalism requires continuous growth to survive, thus driving globalization, if required by military means. Attempts to keep up the dollar regime are becoming more and more desperate. Billions are pumped into the stock market by FED every month, at close to zero interest rate. Someone will have to pay for that if the system is to survive. 2 One point nowadays easily forgotten, the US is slowly but steadily running out of oil. Remember Peak Oil? All Russia and China have to do is wait for the available, mainly Saudi ressources to become substantially less. You can drive a car electric, but how about military jets, tanks and so on, not in one country but on military bases all around the world? The hysteric climate change aganda that is set to make us live without gasoline and meat may even be mostly about that, namely to stretch the availability of oil for keeping up global primacy. In any case, the western Empire needs to strike now or never it seems. The US wanted the war in Ukraine, of course. Question is, where will {they} stop? And what will happen if they stop, on the long run? It is going to be bumpy, that’s the least one can be sure of.

    What would cause China to support Iran?

    I think these are the most important questions for predicting the future. We understand very clearly on Unz that war with Iran to break it apart and prevent a nuclear weapons program is the highest priority for the US.

    If the US leaves behind tens of thousands of troops in Poland after the war and gives Taiwan a guarantee then I think both Russia and China will transfer arms to Iran. When Trump comes back in office in 2025 he will prepare for war with Iran but by that time Russia and China will have armed Iran to the teeth.

    It’s been essentially unbroken since Protagoras. There was a hiatus after Rome fell, roughly from 500-1100. In 1100 the Greek texts returned to the West through the library at Toledo, and the rot resumed nearly where it had left off.

    Israel’s concern for Russia’s Jews, while justified, is also a misread of Russia’s president. Putin has closely studied the reasons for the collapse of the Soviet Union and believes that one of them was its antagonism of Jewry, which he sees as a global power.

    Jewish advisers and oligarchs are central figures in his inner circle – including, of course, Roman Abramovich, the Russian-Israeli billionaire who is now anxious to salvage his credibility by proposing to help in mediations with Ukraine.

    It is becoming clearer that Russia is not so much at war with Ukraine as she is locked in an existential struggle to avoid the fate of Yugoslavia. Putin is not going to tolerate shipments of German or other weapons into Ukraine to kill Russian servicemen. What is really chilling is that for the power addicts who run our country, a larger European war would just mean more “market share” for them. If they could arrange to have another powerful economic rival, the EU, vanish in radioactive dust clouds, they would be quite pleased with their accomplishment.

    “And I cry — I who am a Son of the land of Poland and who am also Pope John Paul II — I cry from all the depths of this Millennium, I cry on the vigil of Pentecost:

    Let your Spirit descend.
    Let your Spirit descend,
    and renew the face of the earth,

    Former Russian Ambassador and Current CIA Director, Bill Burns, Knew Exactly What Would Trigger Vladimir Putin to Enter Ukraine
    February 28, 2022 | Sundance | 342 Comments

    The CIA Director is crystal clear that Russia would be seriously triggered about any prospect of Ukraine entering NATO.

    —–

    Joe Biden was publicly saying something his CIA Director knew to a certainty would trigger Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    This is not a mistake.

    This is not a strategic blunder or internal messaging error.

    —–

    As we have witnessed, the White House is shifting blame for the collapsing economy, surging oil prices, massive gas price increases and overall U.S. inflation.

    The manufactured crisis in Ukraine then takes on a geopolitical angle and a domestic angle. The rate of inflation, rising oil and gas prices, are now being blamed on Russia-Ukraine.

  36. Fat bastard John Hagee (apostate Evangelical Zio-pig and all around Bible prophecy lunatic) says Russia and Iran are going to attack Amerika with nukes:

    History is repeating itself. Putin is doing exactly what Hitler did to get World War II started.

    Meanwhile, as Russia succeeds in having its way with Ukraine with no real pushback from America, Iran will take that as the green light to finalise its nuclear ambitions to achieve a bomb. Iran is under the control of radical Islam which has threatened to use a nuclear bomb to attack Israel and the United States. 9/11 proved that America can be attacked by radical Islamists with devastating effect. A nuclear weapon is far more deadly than an airplane loaded with fuel. The Iranian threat is real, and Iran must be stopped before these weapons become operational.

    Russia’s military has been in the Middle East since 2015. Russia supports Iran. Iran trains, equips, and funds the terrorist armies of Hamas and Hezbollah who are begging for the green light to attack Israel with a nuclear weapon.

    https://www.cufi.org.uk/news/pastor-john-hagees-important-message-on-ukraine/


    Then we also have crazy cat lady and Zio-witch Nancy Pelousi – Amerikan police state Speaker of the House who takes her decrepid old bones and a big entourage of Zionist hacks and Israeli lovers to the Knesset and tells all the Jews – the very ones who did 9-11 how much she loves them:

    (February 16, 2022 / JNS) “We are together in the fight against terror posed by Iran and its nuclear development,” Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday at the Knesset.

    Iran “is a threat to the world,” said the California lawmaker, who is heading a delegation of high-level members of Congress. “Israel’s proximity to Iran is a threat to us all and the responsibility of all of us.”

    https://www.jns.org/house-speaker-pelosi-at-knesset-we-are-together-in-fight-against-terror-posed-by-irans-a-threat-to-us-all/


    Pay no attention to the coincidence that Amerikan foreign policy is hand to hand tied to Evangelical God lobby and Zionist goals of world domination and that bear baiting in Ukraine is directly related to Amerika’s support for the upcoming nuclear strike on Iran.

    The ZUS broke every agreement with Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union about not letting NATO expand into the former Soviet Block countries and Russia finally said that the Ukraine was a bridge too far and this plus the 2014 coup by the ZUS communists in the Ukraine and the shelling and bombing of the breakaway provinces in the Donbass was the last straw and thus the move by Russia to neutralize the Ukraine.

    I certainly have respect for Pres Putin and Russia but his justification here is a truck load of nonsense. And the question is not about the Ukraine. Ukraine is a tangential issue. Does Russia get to decide who dances with the US or is that something a country decides for themselves. I think the question is the latter — Russia, the US China, Great Britain, France . . . etc. decide who get to dance with of their own accord.

    3. Ohhh Snore about previous admin. promises. Sure they ought to be honored if made — but admin twist and shake over agendas and binds they had no part in all the time. But the Ukraine was not now or at the time of the invasion a threat to Russia — whether the Ukraine is made or not — that positioning I get a real kick out of — because all countries are I effect made up.

North Africa and of Ukraine — but there’s no way to roll those back. It’s not like being falsely accused of a crime in which a strokes of the pen can alleviate much — no blood has been shed – lots of it

    And the issue is clear going forward — will the US be faced with the question of another country deciding who she can dance with —– if we do nothing, and it pains me no end to say it — the cliche’ about next time and the next time may ring accurate.

    The Russians are starting to mass produce Armata Tanks and a generation of UAV much like the T34 introduced in 1941 to the astonishment of the Germans. If we end up fighting with Abrams and Leopards and Challengers in the Steppe on behalf of Poland the newer stuff will be ready to deploy in great numbers and we won’t know what to do if our tanks start getting knocked out.

    You are out of touch. We have transgenders, queers, fags and others falling under any letter of the LGBTQ alphabet soup, specially trained in tank destruction.

  88. We need to get a history and perspective on this conflict. This was in the game plan for years; this conflict is not a reaction. The state department is heavily influenced by the neocons. Nuland pitted a Christian Russia against a Christian Ukraine; the hope was for a slaughter perpetuated by the lunacidal nazy’s. East Ukraine would be destroyed, foll0wed by the genocide of the Russian population; the neocon investors would move in to share the spoils and in return nato would get its’ dream fulfilled; nukes on Russias border. Both nuland and zelensky are jewish and this exposes the real motive for this conflict. Nato and the neocons grossly underestimated Putins resolve and red line. Mainland USA is checked by Russian nuclear submarines. Russia has no reason to leave Ukraine and most likely won’t. Will they place nuclear weapons on belgiums border? Russia has nothing to loose.

    I don’t believe Putin wants to recreate the Soviet Union, though that is certainly the narrative the MIC is pushing. He simply wants countries right at his border to not fall into NATO’s orbit, for Russia’s own self protection. Ukraine is also Europe’s bread basket from whence the AngloZionists can control Russia’s food supply.

    Same with China and Taiwan. China does not really want to incorporate Taiwan into China, but they also don’t want Taiwan to fall into the Zio warmonger’s orbit and let them set up a military base right at China’s border.

    Israeli Anti-Tank Weapons Heading to Ukraine

    Israeli anti-tank weapons systems manufactured in Germany at a factory owned by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems are heading to Ukraine, according to a report by the Hebrew-language Calcalist news outlet.

    The 1,000 Panzerfaust 3 anti-tank rocket launcher systems were being delivered to Ukraine by Germany and the Netherlands.

    https://www.jewishpress.com/news/israel/israeli-anti-tank-weapons-heading-to-ukraine/2022/02/28/

    Israel Sends Aid to Ukraine; NATO Ships RAFAEL Weapons

    NATO is supplying Ukraine with weapons made by a subsidiary of Israel’s defense industries, The Jerusalem Post reports.

    The Netherlands will be sending 50 anti-tank systems manufactured by a German subsidiary of Israel’s RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems. Panzerfaust 3, a portable rocket-propelled grenade, can penetrate Russian armor, the report said.

    In parallel, Israel will be sending 3 planes Tuesday loaded with humanitarian and medical aid to Ukraine, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said. Jerusalem will also back the upcoming UN vote to condemn Russia, he added.

    Israel is concerned that taking a clear stance against Russia will harm the IDF’s freedom of operation in Syria, where Moscow maintains forces. However, officials in Jerusalem are increasingly taking Ukraine’s side, partly due to US pressure.

    Notably, US-Russia tensions could limit Israeli strikes in Syria if Moscow blocks military action in the area, senior IDF officers told Walla News. In parallel, Israel is closely watching for a potential rise in Iranian arms shipments, as Tehran may seek to exploit the Ukraine conflict to bolster its regional proxies, the report said.

    The T-14 Armata is not deployed nor in serial production. Every delivery deadline since 2017 has been missed, despite ever smaller numbers promised. Russia likely has no more than seven Armatas. These appear to be experimental models with a non-standard engine as the T-14 engine development program has been cancelled due to unspecified failures. There is no evidence a T-14 Armata production line is even in the earliest stage of being set up.

    It’s about geography — generally it’s always about geography. Who gets to be where for strategic advantage —

    However, how we go about that process matters. The fact that Russia wants X to the exclusion of their neighbors is out of bounds — more importantly the challenge that unless the US stops dancing with the Ukraine Russia is going to have a hissy fit is also a nonstarter.

    And why in this case — a fight is worth having now or very soon — one might suggest we aren’t prepared to take on Russia —-

    i would challenge that — what the US does well is advance and destroy enemies; here there is clear moral ground. Here there is clear motive. I agree we picked a needless brawl — but that it has come so be it.

    The US and NATO had already backed down from adding Ukraine as a dance partner — Pres Putin/Russia won that debate — there was no reason to invade. And that invasion is not about territory. It’s a direct test of NATO’s resolve and the backbone of the EU and the US.

    And that speecjh about wokeness as acause — snore after snore . . . one’s neighbors are nt unknown to do crazy things — hardly a cause for me to run over and invade their homes. Which of course invites a serious discussion about sovereignty and made up countries —- laughing — good greif . . .

    It is my understanding that Kiev is the Ukraine and the Russian Naval base located in Crimea and never two shall meet. The Crimeans apparently invited Russia . . the Ukrainians have said we are not interested and are fighting to make the point.

    What other alphabet soup cities spread 552.647538 of miles apart you intend to make the case will be interesting. There is no record of the Ukraine attacking the naval base . . or even spitting at it. good grief.

    Again just a reminder one is the Ukraine and the other in Crimea. This like having a discussion with a liberal . . . there’s always some added cupcake connection that isn’t relevant. We nor the Ukrainians did a thing about Crimea. —-

  104. American foreign policy produces dangerous alliances

    I disagree here. I think the Sino-Russian alliance is anti-dangerous and one of the silver linings of US foreign policy.

    As both Russia and China are major powers, things get dangerous when they eye each other as rivals. But as partners, there’s peace and trade between them. It will be good for stability in the whole region.

    Now, will Sino-Russian partnership pose a danger to the US? No. Neither China nor Russia has any designs on Western Europe, Canada, or the US. The only danger is that the so-called alliance can better withstand US imperialism. The danger then is in US imperialism’s over-reach than in the alliance’s response to it.

    The Cold War was bad, but one good thing was the US was very careful in the Middle East because of the Soviet Union. But US as lone superpower(ruled by Jews) made a total hell of the Middle East(and parts of North Africa).

    Now, China or Russia alone is no match for the US power whose military spending is bigger than the next 20 nations combined. But together, they can serve as bulwark against excessive US intervention, like in Syria(where Russian military saved the country) and Iran(where Chinese purchase of oil is helping the economy).

    Jewish-exceptionalist US is dangerous, so it’s good for there to be counter-power that can reduce the danger.

    People say the Ukraine Crisis is very dangerous, and in the short term, yes, but in the long term, it will be better for the world. It will have sent a message to the US that there’s a limit to their provocations.

    US says: “Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, the two most powerful autocrats, challenge the current political and military order.”

    Better nationalist autocrats than globalist cuckocrats or puppocrats.

    • Agree: RichardDuck, ThreeCranes
  105. Alastair Crooke argues: “The crux of Russia’s complaints about its eroding security have little to do with Ukraine per se but are rooted in the Washington hawks’ obsession with Russia, and their desire to cut Putin (and Russia) down to size – an aim which has been the hallmark of US policy since the Yeltsin years. The Victoria Nuland clique could never accept Russia rising to become a significant power in Europe – possibly eclipsing the US control over Europe.”

    I wonder… people speak of Russia, but would US feel this way if Yeltsinism had totally taken over Russia?

    Suppose Yeltsinism rules Russia and Russia is one big Ukraine, a kleptocratic paradise for the globalist ‘lawyers in love’.

    Then, surely Jewish-exceptionalist US would not have supported sub-nazis and other extreme elements in Ukraine. (And Russia would not have intervened in Syria.) And the bulk of Russian wealth would be flowing into the pockets of Jewish globalists, and Russia would have the biggest homo parades in Europe.

    Then, there would have been no ‘new cold war’.

    People talk as if this ‘new cold war’ is the result of the US war machine always needing a New Enemy. But if Jews totally controlled Russia, I would think US would consider Russia as a best ally(or cuck-puppet).

    So, this isn’t about US vs Russia. It’s about Jews trying to turn Russia into another satrapy of the Empire of Judea.

    It’s like Jews are okay with Saudi Arabia cuz it’s hapless puppet of the US. It’s countries like Syria and Iran that are targeted simply because they remain out of the Judeo-US sphere of influence.

    Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Tuesday the war in Ukraine should be stopped and accused the “mafia-like regime” of the United States of creating the conflict.
    “The U.S. regime creates crises, lives off of crises and feeds on various crises in the world. Ukraine is another victim of this policy,” Khamenei said in a televised speech.

    “In my view, Ukraine is a victim of the crises concocted by the United States,” he said. “There are two lessons to be learnt here. States which depend on the support of the U.S. and Western powers need to know they cannot trust such countries.”
    Khamenei believes that the ignorance is wide spread where is produced by the US.
    “The same moral vices of the age of ignorance (in pre-Islamic Arabia) exist today in the so-called civilised Western world in an organised and more widespread way. Life in Western civilisation is based on greed, and money is the basis of all Western values,” Khamenei said.
    The ‘Mafia regime’ of US created Ukraine crisis. He says the world needs to learn a lesson about Western support from examples of Ukraine and Afghanistan. Iran wishes for the war in Ukraine to end but believes the crisis is rooted in the policies of the United States and other Western nations.
    “In Ukraine, we are in favor of stopping the war,” he said during a televised speech on Tuesday, adding that a crisis can be alleviated only if the “root cause” is known, which he identified as the policies of the Western powers.

    Khamenei said the “mafia regime” of the US creates many crises around the globe, which he said also included the creation of ISIL (ISIS), and meddling in other nations’ affairs by forcing regime changes and installing pro-West politicians.
    Ukraine has fallen “victim” to such policies and has been dragged to its current situation, the supreme leader said.
    In his hourlong speech on the Ukraine war, the supreme leader did not mention Russia once.
    Khamenei said two lessons should be learned from the Ukraine crisis by the governments and people around the world: that the West cannot be trusted and that popular support is of utmost importance.
    “Support by Western governments for administrations and politicians that have been installed by them is a mirage,” he said, citing the chaotic withdrawal of US-led Western forces from Afghanistan as it fell to the Taliban as an example.

    The earlier Iranian reactions to the Ukraine crisis have been in line with the supreme leader’s stance, mainly identifying the US-led NATO as the culprit.

    [The United Nations Charter is explicit, aggressive war and invasion of a sovereign nation state obligates all United Nations member States to stand in solidarity against the aggressor.]

    Putin and the world still remember that US lead alliances of NATO forces without UN sanction
    against Kosovo and Yugoslavia to do the regime change and implement the partition of Yugoslavia into mini states where thousands of people were killed or injured. And later the 9/11 terror and 7 countries in 5 years, where Russia and china cooperated with the West and particularity in Libya allowed US and NATO to destroy that country and massacre people including Qaddafi and his family.
    Later they destroyed Syria and later Yemen. Yemen is US war that Saudis are managing and funding.
    Killing so many children of Yemen does not benefit Saudi Arabia, it benefits US and Israel.

    After 25 years of absolute terror, rape, looting and violation of international law and restriction of freedom of speech at home, the United States is not in a better position, rather in a much weaker position, with a broken economy that is created an opportunity for another expansionist leader, Putin. It was the United States and Israel that set the stage for invasion, terrorism, and chaos all over the world.
    There is a rumor that these events aren’t happening for no reason, meaning the powers, US, Russia and China, are trying to divide the world between themselves, therefore, they have to support each other’s crimes against humanity. I think it is too dangerous that Putin holds too many cards.
    Russia always cooperated with the West, even during the ‘cold war’. Russia always cooperated with

    “Aggression is a relative term”, in your mind, but that is entirely irrelevant in the real world. All that matters is the definition of aggression according to The United Nations Charter. When Russia invaded Ukraine, Russia walked into the trap. It is all over for Russia. China, in its smug idiocy, is neither opposing nor supporting Russia. China sees it as a win-win. Russia becomes more of a junior partner in the Sino-Russo Alliance and lots more Siberian lumber pours into China, plus cheaper natural gas and more Chinese leases in Siberia. China not too bright. China is the real target here. With the idiotic invasion of Ukraine the present Russian government must collapse and realign. Russian sovereignty will remain. This might take awhile. Meanwhile all barriers to Ukraine becoming part of the EU and NATO have vanished. Next Russia. A matter of time. Without Russia the ambitions of China are finished.

As it became known, we are talking about a group of “volunteers” who decided to join the Ukrainian troops.

    Brazil – 92,600

    As of January 15, 1959, the number of Jews in the USSR was 2,268,000—1.09 per cent of the total Soviet population. Twenty years previous, as taken January 17, 1939, the figure was 3,020,000, or 1.78 per cent of the total population.

    [Whatever Iran policy the GOP decides upon, the party should develop a strategy acknowledging that the clerical regime, deus ex machina aside, has probably won the nuclear race. Are Republicans prepared to back a containment/regime-change policy that would require a much more active America in the Middle East? Can Republicans and Democrats find common ground since partisanship can kill any long-term policy of containment and covert action? There are excellent reasons to maintain a sanctions wall against Tehran; all those reasons have to do with advancing regime change against a nuclear-armed Islamic Republic. Yet sanctions have been the easy, all-purpose, political approach for Americans averse to conflict; they’ve allowed too much wishful thinking and preempted difficult, unpopular debates.
    Of the three aggressive revisionist powers — China, Russia, and Iran — only the last has a regional counterweight. What America has declined to do, Israel still may. Are Republicans willing to support Israeli military action knowing that it could provoke a war that the U.S. might have to join? If not, Republican and Democratic differences over Iran are much less than their rhetoric suggests.]

    Dear Philip,

    I have a simple question for you and would appreciate your answer in spite of your extremely busy schedules; so, please educate me here if you have a few minutes to spare.

    About 2 years ago, American Trump govt. killed Iranian General Qasim Sulaimani by inviting him — through a proxy — for a so-called “Peace-Talk” inside America-occupied Iraq and, in the aftermath of that killing, Iranian govt. could do nothing in terms of retaliation against America and Israel.

    Even when Israeli govt. routinely kills so-called Iranian nuclear-scientists, Iranian govt. cannot do anything in terms of retaliation against Israeli govt., which is probably due to Iranian government’s fear of Israeli nuclear capability to attack the Islamic Republic of Iran and kill half-a-million Iranians instantly!

    American Republican politicians in general and American Biden govt. in particular routinely call Russian President Putin a thug, a criminal, a dictator, an aggressor, a pariah, a conspirator, a savage as well as a terrorist.

    So, if the President of Russian Federation, Vladimir V. Putin, is a thug, a criminal, a dictator, an aggressor, a pariah, a conspirator, a savage as well as a terrorist, why doesn’t American govt. invite him for a “Peace-Talk” over Ukraine-conflict and kill him just like American Trump administration killed Iranian General Qasim Sulaimani over 2 years ago?

  191. Basically, Russia has already captured Ukraine and currently Russia is in a mop up operation. The promised calvary from old Joe never arrived – and the USA is refusing to provide air cover as Russia would just shoot down our aircrafts like shooting ducks in a pond. The inside defense joke is that our ‘superior’ F-35s are only superior against a third world nation lacking in decent defense. DOD will never risk our jets being shot down by Russia air defense.

    Thus as far as I can tell, the fake government of Ukraine and the oligarchs (fat Jew pigs) have all escaped but Zelensky may still have a future, according to some, as Russia may leave him in the job like that ‘tie chewer’ Mikheil Saakashvili in Georgia after Russia sacked the Jew operation there. What you are going to see in a week or two is peace negotiations and a puppet regime friendly to Moscow set up. And there ain’t nothing the western Jews can do about it but go to the Wailing Wall and cry crocodile tears of regret to their fake war god (which is really Jewish collective ego).

    So in the first week we hear Biden saying ‘fight on’ and ‘they will never take our spirit’ and we are sending billions of weapons is just political platitudes to gain sympathy. Biden has lost Ukraine just like he lost Afghanistan and I would not be surprised in the near future he will lose Taiwan then Guam. How Jews can tolerate Biden now that he lost Ukraine is beyond me.

    BTW you know that trillion dollars of weapons ZOG Amerika sent to the Ukraine. It got blowed up in the first 30 minutes. That’s 1,000 billion dollars of high end equipment wasted. And what isn’t destroyed is now in the hands of Russia. And Russia’s first few days of restraint are coming to an end, Putin replaced a top general and Putin has been embarrassed so the kid gloves are off. The best thing for the Ukrainians to do is surrender to save their towns and lives. Putin is never going to back down and can easily turn Kiev into miles of rubble. Suing for peace is the only sane optin (but of course we are dealing with Jews who will fight to the last Goyim).

    All the weapons being sent to Ukraine can not get to Kiev because it is surrounded, and in fact Russia will capture or blow them up as they arrive near the border. And approaching convoy will be detected and bombed from on high. Western MSM is spinning non-stop lies about Ukrainian resistance, and fooling the Goyim that resistance is even a possibility. Sorry, the war is lost to the west, and Biden and his fool buddies in Europe think sanctions or SWIFT banishment will topple Putin, that is very doubtful – the banking system is going in lockup as the credit contagion spreads. In fact this whole war of Ukraine vs. Russia is cover for the inevitable collapse.

    Why SWIFT banishment won’t work:
    Jeff Snider LIVE (SWIFT Deep Dive. How It Does And Doesn’t Impact Russia)

    So I expect a new narrative in the next news cycle – and the loss of Ukraine will be forgotten and never mentioned by the MSM. Democracy Now! old hag Amy Goodman will complain bitterly about the loss of democracy in Ukraine but never mention Canada or Little Fidel Turdeau as a tyrant.

    Zionists have been cultivating Canadian Banderites (progeny of Nazi collaborators) for decades to make a battering ram out of them and their relatives in Ukraine. Canadian Banderites have been having regular Nazi parades, and they even built Nazi memorials yet the Zionists pretended that nothing was happening. Yeh, at the same time, the Zionists were putting people in prisons for ‘holobiz denials.’

    US Ziocons’ darling Christya Freeland (progeny of a Nazi collaborator Khomyak) was very active in the Nazification of Ukraine. Someone in the Canadian government (Christya Freeland?) even made the Canadian military go to Ukraine to train the self-proclaimed Nazi Azov battalion (of war criminals). Here is a manifest of the Azov Battalions commander Andriy Biletsky known as the “White Führer:”

    Our nation’s historical mission at this critical juncture is to lead the global White Race in its final crusade for its survival. A crusade against the Semite-led Untermenschen

    How much he (and other “White Führers” like Yarosh and Parubiy) was paid to become a goon for the “Semites” like Nuland-Kagan, Carl Gershman, Pyatt, and such?

    An interesting comment by “bevin” on Moon of Alabama:

    Canada could quickly bring this war to an end. If it had any sincere regard for the Ukrainian people it would do so now. All Ottawa needs to do is to invite Russia to establish missile bases in southern Ontario and the prairie provinces. These would bring in much-needed jobs and stimulate a sluggish economy. At the same time such bases, with Russian military personnel, would help to make Ottawa independent of US pressure and to help American politicians understand why Russia gets so excited by the placing of military installations – not to mention biowarfare facilities – on its borders.

    The Russian speaking man in this video claims Putin is playing for the globalists.

    Pretty darn interesting. He addresses the covid charade in Russia and Paris climate accord.

    Putin is committed to a policy of radical irredentism.

    If you listen to Thierry Baudet I am sure you will get the correct information. My sister-in-law has been telling me that he has been saying very interesting things in the past days with regard to the developments between Russia and the forces of Nazism and world domination.

    Forget ” Putin is committed to a policy of radical irredentism. ” because it is wrong and you are too intelligent for it. Putin is fighting aggression and defending his country. He had no other choice. The forces of arrogance and domination refused to budge and insisted on expanding Nato to where it doesn’t belong.

    Manifesto on the Formation of the State of the Federal Republic of Ukraine
    2022-03-01

    We, the free people of Kharkov, Nikolaev, Sumy, Chernigov and other regions of Ukraine, declare and proclaim the formation of a new democratic state, the Federal Republic of Ukraine.
    When the course of events leads to the fact that people of different nations and peoples are forced to terminate the political ties that bind them to a state by dictatorial repressive methods that impose the ideology of Nazism on society, they have an inalienable right to take an independent and equal place among the nations of the world, and a respectful attitude towards the opinions of mankind requires them to explain the reasons that prompted him to such a separation.
    When a long series of egregious and inhumane abuses and acts of violence, invariably subordinated to the same goal, testifies to the insidious design to force our peoples to accept unlimited despotism, dictatorship and the complete rehabilitation of Nazism, the overthrow of such a government and the creation of new security guarantees for the future becomes a right and a duty of the peoples of Ukraine.
    The peoples of Ukraine have shown patience for a long time, and only necessity compels them to change the previous system of their government.

    Jewish Mafia is a tautology. The Judaic cult is the world’s longest extant organised crime operation. Perhaps, in 2000 years, the Mafias of Italy will have transmuted into ‘religions’.

    The ‘collaboration’ between the Ukronazis and various Judaic interests is one of convenience. Zionazis also collaborate with various European fascists in opposition to Moslems, and similarly with Hindutva fascist Modi. Likewise the greatest allies the Zionazis have in the USA are Christian Zionists, who support Israel only because they see the establishment of Israel as necessary to the coming of the End Times, in which the Jews will have to convert, or be destroyed and flung into Hell. Such good ‘friends’. Judaism thrives in discord and hatred, its natural habitats.

    Supporting your hypothesis somewhat is the following history of the events before Putin came to power involving our lovable cleptocratic khazarians:

    Sorry to reply to my own comment, but I want to mention that I happen to know many Israelis and other Jews and they do not seem to be scared at all.

    They don’t actually care about what’s happening in Ukraine. It’s just another opportunity to “buy low.”

    They pretty much openly gloat about how they run the world. They make fun of other Jews who own less than three investment properties. They talk about the “Jews with only one house” club.

    They are not living in fear of “a new hitler” or the obviously increased goyim awareness and anti-Semitism in the world the last six years. They think they’ve already won. They already own all of the property. They have millions of dollars in the bank (these are just low level guys) and are continuing to buy houses for cash in rural areas everywhere. They are “the landlord” even in Mudlick, Kentucky.

    I know a group of wealthy Israelis (and/or “Russian” gangsters) who regularly play in high stakes private poker games at their houses, and they employ Eastern European goyim bodyguards to guard the game, and they basically know these goyim don’t like Jews (they know), but they are not afraid of getting shot by their own bodyguard or anything like. They are the boss and there’s no way this poor bodyguard is going to give up his \$125 paycheck (or \$15 an hour) that he gets for standing there during their poker game. Plus I guess there are cameras everywhere.

    I am all for creating a free and open state, but first you must remove all Jews or you have no chance. A democratic state = a jewish run state. Amerika is a ‘democracy’ because it is run by jews, if Amerikans wanted real freedom and started a movement for real freedom, the jews will denounce such a movement as nazi and their leader Hitlerarian.

    In my little town in southern Oregon there was a protest of mask mandates staged at the local hospital. Jews showed up to disrupt it, and they had big signs that anyone opposed to the mask and the vaccine as Nazis. But there were no Nazis, only hippies, artists, libertarians, Jews who want medical freedom, etc. Not one Nazi from Oregon was protesting the mask mandates but the whole group was denounced as Nazis.

    So that proves Jews were running the Covid and vaccine hoax because it is Jews who attack anyone who oppose it. Many of the protesters were very knowledgable about the 911 hoax, and that the mandates were being orchestrated as a direct attack on individual liberty – so of course that must be shouted down as Nazi.

    Any freedom movement is a threat to Jews and their power, so if you want freedom you must stop Jews first. Likewise if the world is to ever know peace, the centers of Jewish power must be bombed/nuked into oblivion. Want world peace and a sane nation state, then first detonate nukes on NYC, Tel Aviv, and London.

    Reportedly 70% of Russian forces are in the East for the Ukraine operation.

    That shows the sheer undeniable level of TRUST between Russia and China. That fact alone should be sobering to the warmongers in Washington and London.

    The Chinese Army is not going to move one iota. There is no threat to Russian Siberia.

    Russian Siberia acts as a buffer between China and the USA in the same way that the Russian Far East acts as a buffer between China and Japan. Every ICBM coming from the USA will pass by Siberia while every US Navy ship in the Sea of Japan will sail past Vladivostok. This is the geopolitical reason why China wants Russia to defend those territories against both the USA and Japan while benefiting economically from the natural resources extracted from Siberia as well as foreign trade with the Russian Far East. Besides, Siberia is hardly habitable by humans which makes it a foreboding place to administer as a territory, as exemplified by Stalin’s population transfers to force Soviet citizens to settle, develop and defend Siberia.

  211. @anastasia

    They are not allies… They are friendly… Big difference. Having allies gets you into trouble. No different than being in a gang… That’s why they themselves said they are “better than allies”

  212. @emerging majority

    Yeah – These clowns don’t know the difference between Siberia and the Far East of Russia… Nor do they realize that the former Chinese territory of Outer Manchuria is but a tiny slice – and both sides are more concerned with increasing the size of the tiger population in the region than the natural resources.

    They don’t know the difference between various Mongol kingdoms and China (though the Yuan dynasty was a Mongol ruled Chinese dynasty)… Mongols indeed were in parts of Siberia… But yeah they are clueless.

  213. @The Wild Geese Howard

    You have it backwards… Russia was able to reduce forces in the Far East in the past 30 years precisely because of the Friendship Agreement they signed with China. Conversely – China also has been able to focus on building up it’s coastal defenses since then as well since it no longer worries about war with Russia.
