Intro: cause vs pretext

It is not an exaggeration to say that in the mythology of the AngloZionist Empire Putin is something akin to Satan or, at least, that he is a kind of “Sauron” who is the epitome of evil. And, we all heard that recently, Biden, in a recorded interview, declared that Putin is “a killer”. When given a chance to soften this statement Jen Psaki did no such thing. We can, therefore, conclude that this was an official, deliberately planned, characterization of the Russian leader.

This kind of language was never used by western officials during the Cold War, at least not on the top levels. So why this seething hatred for Putin?

It is not because he is ex-GPU KGB SSSR. Yuri Andropov was a former KGB Chairman, and he did a lot to strengthen the KGB, its personnel and operations. Yet nobody called him a killer. Neither is this because of Crimea or the Donbass, at least not directly, because when the USSR invaded Czechoslovakia and, before that, Hungary, western politicians did not call Khrushchev or Brezhnev “killers”. It is not because of the shooting down of MH-17 (western leaders all know that these are lies created by western special services), because there have been quite a few civilian airliners shot down by various states, but that did not result in the kind of total demonization of the leaders of these states. I could go on and on, but you get the point: even if we carefully parse all the accusations against Putin, we find out that the kind of total demonization he has been the subject of is quite unique in its intensity and scope.

There is a huge difference between the concepts of “cause” and “pretext”, and all the examples I have given are nothing but pretexts. We need to look at the real causes of such a blind hatred for Putin.

Here we come across another list of possible reasons: first, it is undeniable that while Eltsin almost destroyed Russia as a country, Putin single-handedly “resurrected” Russia in an amazingly short time. From a country which was in tatters and a population which wanted nothing more than to become the next Germany or, failing that, at least the next Poland, Putin turned Russia into the strongest military power on the planet and he completely reshaped the Russian perception of themselves and of Russia. Not only that, but Putin used every single move by the West (like, say, sanctions, boycotts or threats) to further strengthen Russia (by means such as import substitutions, international conferences and military maneuvers). Most importantly, Putin de-coupled Russia from a lot of US controlled institutions or mechanisms, a move which also immensely served Russia.

US politicians spoke of a country with an “economy in tatters” and of a “gas station masquerading as a country”. But in the real world (Zone B), the Russia economy did much better than the western ones and, as for the “energy war” between the US, the KSA and Russia, it ended in a catastrophic defeat for the USA and a triumph for Russia and, to a lesser degree, the KSA.

Then came COVID and the truly epic disaster of the West’s total mismanagement of this crisis. Not only that, but the contrast of how Russia (and China!) handled the crisis and what the West did could not have been bigger. As for Russia being the first country to create a vaccine (by now, no less than three of them actually; now Russia is about to release yet another vaccine, this time protecting animals from COVID) and, worse, the country which created the best vaccine on the planet – this is a PR disaster for the West and there is nothing the West can do to soften the blow. If anything, things are only getting worse as shown by all the coming lockdowns in Europe – contrast that with this photo of happy Lavrov in China wearing a mask with “FCKNG QRNTN” written on it!

But that is not the real reason either, as shown by the fact that the West already hated Putin long before COVID.

The “stolen” Cold War victory

In truth, the West has a very long list of reasons for which to hate Putin and everything Russian, but I believe that there is one reason which trumps them all: the western leaders sincerely believed that they had defeated the USSR in the Cold War (even medals were made to commemorate this event) and following the collapse of the former superpower and the coming to power of a clueless, alcoholic puppet, the triumph of the West was total. At least in appearance. The reality, as always, was much more complicated.

The causes and mechanisms of the collapse of the Soviet Union are not our topic today, so I will just indicate that I believe that the USSR never “collapsed” but that it was deliberately destroyed by the CPSU apparatus which decided to break up the country in order for the Party and Nomenklatura to remain in power, not at the helm of the USSR, but at the helm of the various ex-Soviet republics. Weak leaders and ideologies which nobody really believes in do not inspire people to fight for their rulers. This is why the Russian monarchy collapsed, this is why the masonic democracy of Kerenskii collapsed and this is why the Soviet Union collapsed (this is also one of the most likely reasons for the final collapse of the US as a state).

Putin, who was not very well known in the West or, for that matter, in Russia, came to power and immediately reversed Russia’s course towards the abyss. First, he dealt with the two most urgent threats, the oligarchs and the Wahabi insurrection in the Caucasus. Many Russians, including myself, were absolutely amazed at the speed and determination of his actions. As a result, Putin suddenly found himself one of the most popular leaders in Russian history. Initially, the West went into a kind of shock, then through a process reminiscent of the so-called “Kübler-Ross model” and, finally, the West settled into a russophobic frenzy not seen since the Nazi regime in Germany during WWII.

To understand why Putin is the Devil incarnate, we have to understand that the leaders of the collective West really thought that this time around, after a millennium of failures and embarrassing defeats, the West has finally “defeated” Russia which would now become a leaderless, culture-less, spiritual-less and, of course, history-less territory whose sole purpose would be to provide resources for the “Triumphant West”. Not only that, but the AngloZionist leaders of the Empire executed the 9/11 false flag operation which gave them the pretext needed for the GWOT, but which completely distracted the West from its previous focus on the so-called “Russian threat” simply because by 2001 there was no Russian threat. So there was a certain logic behind these moves. And then, “suddenly” (at least for western leaders) Russia was “back”: in 2013 Russia stopped the planned US/NATO attack on Syria (the pretext here was Syrian chemical weapons). In 2014 Russia gave her support to the Novorussian uprising against the Ukronazi regime in Kiev and, in the same year, Russia also used her military to make it possible for the local population to vote on a referendum to join Russia. Finally, in 2015, Russia stunned the West with an extremely effective military intervention in Syria.

In this sequence, Russia committed two very different types of “crimes” (from the AngloZionist point of view, of course):

  • The minor crime of doing what Russia actually did and
  • The much bigger crime of never asking the Empire for the permission to do so

The West likes to treat the rest of the planet like some kind of junior partner, with very limited autonomy and almost no real agency (the best example is what the USA did to countries like Poland or Bulgaria). If and when any such “junior” country wants to do something in its foreign policy, it absolutely has to ask for permission from its AngloZionist Big Brother. Not doing so is something akin to sedition and revolt. In the past, many countries were “punished” for daring to have an opinion or, even more so, for daring to act on it.

It would not be inaccurate to summarize it all by saying that Putin flipped his finger to the Empire and its leaders. That “crime of crimes” was what really triggered the current anti-Russian hysteria. Soon, however, the (mostly clueless) leaders of the Empire ran into an extremely frustrating problem: while the russophobic hysteria did get a lot of traction in the West, in Russia it created a very powerful blowback because of a typical Putin “judo” move: far from trying to suppress the anti-Russian propaganda of the West, the Kremlin used its power to make it widely available (in Russian!) through the Russian media (I wrote about this in some detail here and here). The direct result of this was two fold: first, the CIA/MI6 run “opposition” began to be strongly associated with the russophobic enemies of Russia and, second, the Russian general public further rallied around Putin and his unyielding stance. In other words, calling Putin a dictator and, of course, a “new Hitler”, the western PSYOPs gained some limited advantage in the western public opinion, but totally shot itself in the leg with the Russian public.

I refer to this stage as the “phase one anti-Putin strategic PSYOP”. As for the outcome of this PSYOP, I would not only say that it almost completely failed, but I think that it had the exact opposite intended effect inside Russia.

A change of course was urgently needed.

The redirection of US PSYOPs against Putin and Russia

I have to admit that I have a very low opinion of the US intelligence community, including its analysts. But even the rather dull US “Russia area specialist” eventually figured out that telling the Russian public opinion that Putin was a “dictator” or a “killer of dissidents” or a “chemical poisoner of exiles” resulted in a typically Russian mix of laughter and support for the Kremlin. Something had to be done.

So some smart ass somewhere in some basement came up with the following idea: it makes no sense to accuse Putin of things which make him popular at home, so let’s come up with a new list of accusations carefully tailored to the Russian public.

Let’s call this a “phase two anti-Putin PSYOP operation”.

And this is how the “Putin is in cahoots with” thing began. Specifically, these accusations were deployed by the US PSYOPs and those in its pay:

  • Putin is disarming Syria
  • Putin will sell out the Donbass
  • Putin is a puppet of Israel and, specifically, Netanyahu
  • Putin is a corrupt traitor to the Russian national interests
  • Putin is allowing Israel to bomb Syria (see here)
  • Putin is selling the Siberian riches to China and/or Putin is subjugating Russia to China
  • Putin is corrupt, weak and even cowardly
  • Putin was defeated by Erdogan in the Nagorno-Karabakh war

The above are the main talking points immediately endorsed and executed by the US strategic PSYOPs against Russia.

Was it effective?

Yes, to some degree. For one thing, these “anti-Russian PSYOPS reloaded” were immediately picked up by at least part of what one could call the “internal patriotic opposition” (much of it very sincerely and without any awareness of being skillfully manipulated). Even more toxic was the emergence of a rather loud neo-Communist (or, as Ruslan Ostashko often calls them “emo-Marxist”) movement (I personally refer to as a sixth column) which began an internal anti-Kremlin propaganda campaign centered on the following themes:

  • “All is lost” (всепропальщики): that is thesis which says that nothing in Russia is right, everything is either wrong or evil, the country is collapsing, so is its economy, its science, its military, etc. etc. etc. This is just a garden variety of defeatism, nothing more.
  • “Nothing was achieved since Putin came to power”: this is a weird one, since it takes an absolutely spectacular amount of mental gymnastics to not see that Putin literally saved Russia from total destruction. This stance also completely fails to explain why Putin is so hated by the Empire (if Putin did everything wrong, like, say Eltsin did, he would be adored in the West, not hated!).
  • All the elections in Russia were stolen. Here the 5th (CIA/MI6 run) column and 6th column have to agree: according to both of them, there is absolutely no way most Russians supported Putin for so many years and there is no way they support him now. And nevermind the fact that the vast majority of polls show that Putin was, and still is, the most popular political figure in Russia.

Finally, the big SNAFU with the pension reform definitely did not help Putin’s ratings, so he had to take action: he “softened” some of the worst provisions of this reform and, eventually, he successfully sidelined some of the worst Atlantic Integrationists, including Medvedev himself.

Sadly, some putatively pro-Russian websites, blogs and individuals showed their true face when they jumped on the bandwagon of this 2nd strategic PSYOP campaign, probably with the hope to either become more noticed, or get some funding, or both. Hence, all the nonsense about Russia and Israel working together or Putin “selling out” we have seen so many times recently. The worst thing here is that these websites, blogs and individuals have seriously misled and distressed some of the best real friends of Russia in the West.

None of these guys ever address a very simple question: if Putin is such a sellout, and if all is lost, why does the AngloZionist Empire hate Putin so much? In almost 1000 years of warfare (spiritual, cultural, political, economic and military) against Russia, the leaders of the West have always hated real Russian patriots and they have always loved the (alas, many) traitors to Russia. And now, they hate Putin because he is such a terrible leader?

This makes absolutely no sense.

Conclusion: is a war inevitable now?

The US/NATO don’t engage in strategic PYSOPs just because they like or dislike somebody. The main purpose of such PSYOPs is to break the other side’s will to resist. This was also the main objective of both (phase one and phase two) anti-Putin PSYOPs. I am happy to report that both phases of these PYSOPs failed. The danger here is that these failures have failed to convince the leaders of the Empire of the need to urgently change course and accept the “Russian reality”, even if they don’t like it.

Ever since “Biden” (the “collective Biden”, of course, not the potted plant) Administration (illegally) seized power, what we saw was a sharp escalation of anti-Russian statements. Hence, the latest “uhu, he is a killer” – this was no mistake by a senile mind, this was a carefully prepared declaration. Even worse, the Empire has not limited itself to just words, it also did some important “body moves” to signal its determination to seek even further confrontation with Russia:

  • There has been a lot of sabre-rattling coming from the West, mostly some rather ill-advsied (or even outright stupid) military maneuvers near/along the Russian border. As I have explained it a billion times, these maneuvers are self-defeating from a military point of view (the closer to the Russian border, the more dangerous for the western military force). Politically, however, they are extremely provocative and, therefore, dangerous.
  • The vast majority of Russian analysts do not believe that the US/NATO will openly attack Russia, if only because that would be suicidal (the current military balance in Europe is strongly in Russia’s favor, even without using hypersonic weapons). What many of them now fear is that “Biden” will unleash the Ukronazi forces against the Donbass, thereby “punishing” both the Ukraine and Russia (the former for its role in the US presidential campaign). I tend to agree with both of these statements.

At the end of the day, the AngloZionist Empire was always racist at its core, and that empire is still racist: for its leaders, the Ukrainian people are just cannon fodder, an irrelevant third rate nation with no agency which has outlived its utility (US analysts do understand that the US plan for the Ukraine has ended in yet another spectacular faceplant such delusional plans always end up with, even if they don’t say so publicly). So why not launch these people into a suicidal war against not only the LDNR but also Russia herself? Sure, Russia will quickly and decisively win the military war, but politically it will be a PR disaster for Russia as the “democratic West” will always blame Russia, even when she clearly did not attack first (as was the case in 08.08.08, most recently).

I have already written about the absolutely disastrous situation of the Ukraine three weeks ago so I won’t repeat it all here, I will just say that since that day things have gotten even much worse: suffice to say that the Ukraine has moved a lot of heavy armor to the line of contact while the regime in Kiev has now banned the import of Russian toilet paper (which tells you what the ruling gang thinks of as important and much needed measures). While it is true that the Ukraine has become a totally failed state since the Neo-Nazi coup, there is now a clear acceleration of the collapse of not only the regime or state, but of the country as a whole. Ukraine is falling apart so fast that one could start an entire website tracking only all this developing horror, not day by day, but, hour by hour. Suffice to say that “Ze” has turned out to be even worse than Poroshenko. The only thing Poroshenko did which “Ze” has not (yet!) is to start a war. Other than that, the rest of what he did (by action or inaction) can only be qualified as “more of the same, only worse”.

Can a war be prevented?

I don’t know. Putin gave the Ukronazis a very stern warning (“grave consequences for Ukraine’s statehood as such“). I don’t believe for one second that anybody in power in Kiev gives a damn about the Ukraine or the Ukrainian statehood, but they are smart enough to realize that a Russian counter-attack in defense of the LDNR and, even more so, Crimea, might include precision “counter-leadership” strikes with advanced missiles. The Ukronazi leaders would be well-advised to realize that they all have a crosshair painted on their heads. They might also think about this: what happened to every single Wahabi gang leader in Chechnya since the end of the 2nd Chechen war? (hint: they were all found and executed). Will that be enough to stop them?

Maybe. Let’s hope so.

But we must now keep in mind that for the foreseeable future there are only two options left for the Ukraine: “a horrible ending or a horror without end” (Russian expression).

  1. The best scenario for the people of the Ukraine would be a (hopefully relatively peaceful) breakup of the country into manageable parts.
  2. The worst option would definitely be a full-scale war against Russia.

Judging by the rhetoric coming out of Kiev these days, most Ukrainian politicians are firmly behind option #2, especially since that is also the only option acceptable to their overseas masters. The Ukrainians have also adopted a new military doctrine (they call it a “military security strategy of Ukraine”) which declares Russia the aggressor state and military adversary of the Ukraine (see here for a machine translation of the official text).

This might be the reason why Merkel and Macron recently had a videoconference with Putin (“Ze” was not invited): Putin might be trying to convince Merkel and Macron that such a war would be a disaster for Europe. In the meantime, Russia is rapidly reinforcing her forces along the Ukrainian border, including in Crimea.

But all these measures can only deter a regime which has no agency. The outcome shall be decided in Washington DC, not Kiev. I am afraid that the traditional sense of total impunity of US political leaders will, once again, give them a sense of very little risk (for them personally or for the USA) in triggering a war in the Ukraine. The latest news on the US-Ukrainian front is the delivery by the USN of 350 tonnes of military equipment in Odessa. Not enough to be militarily significant, but more than enough to further egg on the regime in Kiev to an attack on the Donbass and/or Crimea.

In fact, I would not even put it past “Biden” to launch an attack on Iran while the world watches the Ukraine and Russia go to war. After all, the other country whose geostrategic position has been severely degraded since Russia moved her forces to Syria is Israel, the one country which all US politicians will serve faithfully and irrespective of any costs (including human costs for the USA). The Israelis have been demanding a war on Iran since at least 2007, and it would be very naive to hope that they won’t eventually get their way. Last, but not least, there is the crisis which Blinken’s condescending chutzpah triggered with China which, so far, has resulted in an economic war only, but which might also escalate at any moment, especially considering all the many recent anti-Chinese provocations by the US Navy.

Right now the weather in the eastern Ukraine is not conducive to offensive military operations. The snow is still melting, creating very difficult and muddy road conditions (called “rasputitsa” in Russian) which greatly inhibit the movement of forces and troops. These conditions will, however, change with the warmer season coming, at which point the Ukronazi forces will be ideally poised for an attack.

In other words, barring some major development, we might be only weeks away from a major war.

    We must not forget President Putin’s outrageous opinion piece in the New York Times of September 11th 2013: delivered at the same time as he had the impertinence to propose the voluntary relinquishment of all chemical weapons by Syria – thwarting the traditional wholesale bombing campaign that the “Allies” were working up to. This was an unforgivable affront to the USA – and to Obama in particular; who had only just invoked his “red line”. It made him look ridiculous – and a man in his position can’t afford to look ridiculous.

    This behaviour by Mr. Putin has never been forgotten or forgiven and it will be quite a while before the New York Times prints another oped by him.

    Excellent observation.

    To deal with contemporary western elites is, to a great extent, to deal with Satan himself. The devil- and presumably, his minions- does not mind confrontation or opposition anywhere as much as he hates being the object of derision.

  5. “why does the AngloZionist Empire hate Putin so much?”

    I have an explanation, but that would tend to get me labelled a “sixth columnist”.

    It is obvious to anyone who does not believe that Putin is the Saviour Of Russia, but just a neoliberal politician who is moderately better than Yeltsin, and whose real alternatives, not Quislings like Navalny but real alternatives, are all far more nationalist and not beholden to international capital than he is. Since the 90s are now over, and the attempt to destroy Russia has failed, how does one ensure that the country does not become even stronger and, crucially, more assertive?

    One possible answer is interesting: keep demonising the man in power, *even though you know that demonising him hardens support behind him*. Especially since it hardens support behind him. As long as you keep attacking him, the Russian people support him more, making it less likely for someone who would be more nationalist and less neoliberal to take charge.

    Simple enough.

    Andrei Raevsky, do you even re-read what BS you write?!
    you aren’t fooling anyone but a handful of braindead followers you got there on your blog

    the West doesn’t hate Putin, they just want to loot Russia or get a cut from the loot of Russia.
    Russian oligarchs want to loot Russia for themselves without giving a cut/tribute to Western oligarchs.
    Putin is a non-issue, a nobody, he just follows orders of the Russian oligarchs.

    But there is a real hate @ Putin – that because he is a fake, only a carefully prepared media
    image. And you Andrei Raevsky are part of that propaganda effort. Putin is no savior, Putin
    is not working for the betterment of Russians or humanity as a whole. He is just a facade for
    Russian oligarchs. And that is what we hate. And the more you and the likes of you push
    that fake image of Putin, the more the pushback and hate from us.
    So go on – continue.

    I was a believer in Putin. Then I saw the light. Now I would have no quarrel putting a bullet in

    I’ve come to think that the whole “Putin the Devil” thing is pushed so hard by the corporate-communist-left (aside: I do struggle these days with what to call them) mostly as a distraction. “Hey! Look over there! A BAD MAN!” (and pay no mind to what I’m doing over here, flooding the country with replacements, thrashing the constitution, coming up with vaccine passports and enabling a totalitarian technocracy).

    In fact, it’s a necessary hallmark of ALL totalitarian leftist regimes to have a huge “outside enemy” who threatens the very existence of the state and is used to distract from domestic troubles. Try to find a single totalitarian state without one.

    So the U.S. has everything to gain and little to lose (Biden gov thinks anyways) by goading Ukraine into “taking back Crimea.” The U.S. is committed to fight that war down the very last Ukrainian.

These Putin worshippers are worse cultists than the Obamabots and Trumpets. They conflate a politician with an entire nation.

    It’s especially rich coming from the descendant of White Russian emigres, whose allegiance to their country of origin was not exactly unequivocal over the decades since 1917.

    And the real agenda comes through when dismissing Putin critics in Russia as “sixth columnists”, “dupes”, etc. Look who’s talking.

    I play online chess — speedy games, and so I have a lot of experience with players from Russia and Ukraine. They tend to favor what chess players call “quiet moves.” Is this a manner of thought, a philosophy, that can be extrapolated to government?

  13. Is Putin Jewish? There’s some speculation that his mother was a Jew.

    Putin comes off to me as a Jew who considers himself Russian but still has great sympathy for the Jewish cause. Hence, he looks after Russia’s interests but is also quite chummy with the Israelis. He’s tight pals with Chabbad Lubavitch, the international Jewish blackmail and human trafficking ring masquerading as a religious group.

    Jewish Oligarch Roman Abrahamovich is one of his best friends. And the chief Rabbi of Russia also praises him well.

    Here’s him inviting Jews to mother Russia

    Not only that, but Putin used every single move by the West (like, say, sanctions, boycotts or threats) to further strengthen Russia

    “More sanctions to crush the bear vs more sanctions to make it stronger”

    In reality, Putin managed to get Russia to withstand the economic blows by the West, without collapsing, but growth did stop, and has been stagnant to this day. The very real amazing progress in becoming a world leader in grain export and so on may in itself be a “victory”, but in the larger scheme it’s one of the instruments through which “stagnant stability” was achieved, as opposed to “collapse and regime change”.

    That being said, we’ve yet to see if the “waiting out the enemy to tire himself out” strategy worked or not. What will the post-COVID (or perma-COVID) situation look like across the world? Maybe the West itself will also do some economic stagnating for a while. And then we’ll see if it can grin and bear it, or lash out psychotically left and right instead.

    Anyway, to summarize, Putin is currently on his fourth US president, and Russia itself is on its tenth century of Western powers periodically trying to crush it every few decades.

    I have heard a claim that Russia has been rolling out hundreds of vehicles with pontoon bridge deployment facilities. Is this just a fantastic claim or a realistic, ingenious possibility of getting around the mud problem?

    When Israel Shamir first declared on this website in early September 2015 that Russia was going to intervene in Syria nobody believed him (including me). By the end of the month he was proved correct. is everyone making a similar mistake now by assuming that we have a few weeks left before an actual war?

    The Saker admires Islam and sings the praises of the Muslims whose only goal is to rape white women and kill white children for the pleasure of Allah: https://thesaker.is/deconstructing-islamophobia/

    The Soviet Union sold Russian oil for American dollars hence undergirding the petrodollar system which amounted to aiding and abetting their supposed mortal enemy, the United States. If there was real enmity between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, the Russians would have demanded payment in gold or silver instead of conceding their valuable natural resources essentially for free, in return for the western central bankers’ worthless electronic digits created out of nothing — hence *nothing* — aka dollars and euros and yens, etc.

    In the same vein, Putin sells Russian oil for American Dollars today. Furthermore, the Russians can only invest in American Treasuries the dollars they get in payment for their oil. They are prohibited from buying gold for instance with the proceeds; as written into the Russian Constitution drafted under Putin’s former boss Yeltsin. Putin did not nationalize the Russian central bank as promised. The Russian central bank cannot even print Russian rubles without oversight and permission from the City of London. The Russian central bank is a Rothschilds affiliate: https://anonhq.com/checkmate-central-bank-russia/

    Putin with his dictatorial powers could have changed all that in five seconds with a presidential decree.

    Putin is literally nothing, a nonentity. He’s just a tool, a facade chosen on a whim and no more. All the pro-Christian statements and appearances are empty rhetoric and forceful brainwashing. Didn’t Putin just kill 5000 Christian Armenians along with the barbaric Turkish Muslim psychopaths and delivered the Caucasus to the Muslim horde on a silver platter? Erdogan is coming to Shushi in Karabakh to celebrate the massacre of the Armenians and the Turks’ invasion of the Caucasus — and the opening of the land corridor between Turkey and Central Asia, thanks to Putin and his handlers.

    The US will want a media event in the Ukraine/ Russia war. Lots of pics and videos of Russian aggression.

    Putin’s best strategic option would be to end such a war as quickly as possible via overwhelming force, so quick it’s a past event as soon as it hits CNN, depriving the US of its propaganda.

    He could do this by placing hundreds of artillery pieces helicopter gunships along the Ukrainian border. This would act as a deterrent first

    The moment Ukraine invades he wipes out the invading forces in a quick shock and awe style response. If quick enough would deprive the US of its media propaganda.

    I agree with “Maybe the West itself will also do some economic stagnating for a while. “

    This is exactly what they are doing. This is exactly why the lockdowns during X-mas and Easter. Busiest buying seasons. It is a trade war against China, denying them the Western markets. The Western customer, while aggravated with the lockdowns and masks, is flush with stuff, so they can easily skip few – lets call them – “shopping-cycles”.

    Putin/Xi fan-boys claim that China’s production rebounded after the March 2020 lockdown, that might be true, but are they selling the shyt their produce? Nope! Because if the whole world is in lockdown, there is noone to replace the Western consumer. The Chinese might as well produce shyt then bury it in the ground. Such a sustainable business model! *not* But you won’t hear this from Pepe or thefaker.

    Same with Russia – world in lockdown, noone needs their hydrocarbons (oil&gas). Or needs them alot less. But this industry has fixed costs, and at some point everything falls apart.

    And whatever Pepe and thefaker are peddling – I see the recent Alaska meeting as the Chinese getting hysterical because they are under pressure and need the Western markets reopened, while the Iranian-Chinese deal is – WTF – didn’t they already sign it a year or two ago – so basically they are only rehashing the same news just to make headlines how everything is fine and they are *winning*.

    Putin is a classical politician in the Westphalian mold. Nationalism, to the fervor of the Germans or Japanese last century is supremacist. Russians have historically not expressed the supremacist emotion imo, so nationalism just implies fair interaction with other nations. Putin does this well, even with the weak hands he is usually dealt.

  25. Today’s incessant demonization of China and Russia mirrors the propaganda barrage of the 1930’s against Japan and Germany, done then as now to condition peace-loving Americans to consent to another great “balance of power” war. The 1930s U.S economy was in tatters, with millions in the streets demanding justice with a militancy not seen here since the labor wars of the 1870’s and 1890’s. Misrepresenting the desire of two smaller second rate powers for regional security as some mad ambition “to conquer the world” was just the ticket to distract the people, to crush domestic dissent, and to massively rearm to create jobs. As Goering said, all you have to do is tell the people they are in danger, and they will follow you blindly.

    This is the same kind of scenario that is again unfolding before our eyes. The profit-hungry corporations who won no contracts for heavy armaments in the long, futile “war on terror” now have the ear of the new regime. One of their own is the new Secretary of Defense, for pity’s sake. Obligingly, the Pentagon reveals new plans for “great power conflict” and even “winnable nuclear war”. Our media tell us we must also hate and fear our own disaffected fellow countrymen, and even our own evil “whiteness”. We accept censorship of “conspiracy theories” for our own good. We drift once again toward unparalleled catastrophe, and so much of the people’s silence rests on the fantasy version of “the good war”, that many think is a moral imperative to believe without question.

    Putin is not against the West. Since Peter the Great Russia has seeked to join the west, and has been continuously battered down. Maybe Putin is too aloof to be convinced that Western Europe sees the Slavs as ‘white niggers’, but so much the better on him for trying to break the cycle of hate.

    Russia’s PPP GDP/capita is around $30k. Sure food prices are high, but you can’t say Putin did nothing to help the common prol.

    That he condescends to Jewish power? Well, maybe he is aware of the dangers of Jewish power – after all Russia felt the brunt of that ideology last century, and maybe playing dumb is better than playing kamikaze.

    Personally I believe Stalin tricked the Jews in a way Hitler’s bluster never could, in recognising Israel as a nation. The Jewish state now has no casuist excuses to hide from its supremacist blood lust (unlike when Israel was scattered amongst the nations), and the ideology will only become more and more reviled by the world.

The Jews were not successful in taking over Russia in the 80ies just like they have slowly taken over the USA since WW2.

    The propaganda thrust is to critique Putin from the nationalist right as being a sellout, not doing enough, etc. It’s all very clever. The US wants to stay in Europe as a dominant power after having rushed in ’44-45 to grab what it could. To prevent the natural evolvement of normal relations between Germany and Russia and all the other countries the US foments crisis and violence. The specter of war has always to be stoked to achieve this. Touching off a messy military conflict in Ukraine fits the bill. Getting a lot of Ukrainians killed in the process is of no concern to them. The Ukrainian leaders are puppets who will plunge their country into conflict then jump ship and flee westward to be rewarded and feted as heroes just like Saakashvili did with Georgia, leaving their countrymen holding the bag and suffering the casualties. Egging Putin on from the right is to bait him into reacting firmly so the US can then scream ‘see see, we told you he was an aggressive dictator’ and making NATO relevant again. The vileness of this policy is truly evil. The US is a continent away so what business does it have or care what the borders are in places like the Balkans, Ukraine, Georgia, etc? War, death, misery, endless bombs and missiles from above, shock and awe are what the US has to offer, holding the world hostage.

    Also, let’s not forget that the nascent Israeli project needed and obtained decisive support from Stalin and Gromyko between 1945 and 1949. And before that, that it was the Red Army that liberated the largest concentration camps.

    At present, the ruling national camp in Israel is quite happy that Russia under Putin offers a counterweight to the Democrat US administration. This is nothing spectacular or nefarious – just the stuff of classical diplomacy. Balance of power and all that.

    What most Americans don’t realise { because of all the propaganda } is that the Peoples gov is gone, and the One World Order Crime Syndicate now rule and have ruled for decades. There have been so many crimes committed by this Crime Cabal , that they Have to have a huge cover up for all the lies, theft,destruction, and murder. Why Putin and Xi don’t bring this out in a joint speech , is almost a crime in itself. Diplomacy is one thing , but stickin it to the tribe that is out to destroy your name and your country comes first. And there are no rules in war with the West, and they are playin for keeps — so to — Russia /China — just Win. Ukraine army is sittin on the border , Russian tanks are sitting there too – Mexican stand-off , unless the US Ukie army engages and Kyiv is stupid enough to follow the Zionist/Neocon orders.

    I know “Fiendly Neighbourhood Terrorist” and the moniker he posts under @ thefakers blog and he never ever supports the war on Donbass.

    His stance was always – Nazi Azov brigade could and should have been eradicated @ 2014. This is his “crime” because at thefakers blog noone is allowed to challenge Putin’s decisions not to engage fully and free Russian+Ukranian peoples from the Nazi pest in Ukranine.

    For me, the Nazis in Ukraine should have been dealt with in 1945. But our elders missed that opportunity. Putin is doing the same now. And next generations will have to deal with the same problem over and over again.

The Five Eyes, the only countries that voted against the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (after sabotaging years of work on a Treaty)and which all decimated their Indigenous people, or killed tens of millions in Imperial aggressions (ie the UK)really fancy themselves the global ubermenschen. Throw in the eminence gris, Israel, where the Zionazis and Talmudists believe themselves to be the ‘Supreme Beings of the Universe’ (take that, Daleks!)and the Atlanticist running-dogs, and you have a Western posse itching to kill lots of untermenschen.

  68. Schuetze says:

    Saker’s controlled opposition is continually getting more difficult to keep consistent. There are too many contradictions in the “Russian” cognitive dissonance matrix. Take these examples:

    “Putin single-handedly “resurrected” Russia in an amazingly short time. From a country which was in tatters and a population which wanted nothing more than to become the next Germany

    Russians wanted to become the next Germany, the country they genocided. How typically Saker, how typically Russian.

    “finally, the West settled into a russophobic frenzy not seen since the Nazi regime in Germany during WWII.”

    Saker clearly has no understanding of the true causes and effects of WWII. Germany certainly did not suffer a “russophobic frenzy“. Germany wanted to prevent the judeo-masonic-communists doing to her what they had done to Russia. What is interesting with this statement is that Saker has let his propaganda mask slip entirely off of his face. For decades Russians have avoided their guilt for war crimes committed by the Red Army which was under the control of the jewish commissars. Now Saker and the Russians own all the theft, rape, murder, and all the war crimes committed across central and eastern Europe for over 50 years. From Katyn forest to the Gulags to the invasions of Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Iran, Russians now own the entirety of these war crimes.

    “the leaders of the collective West really thought that this time around, after a millennium of failures and embarrassing defeats, the West has finally “defeated” Russia”

    Once again Saker draws equivalency between USSR and Russia. Saker’s glorious Red Rapist Army has now been laid bare, the entire planet can now see the true nature of Russians, not communists, especially when they wear a uniform. No wonder the “collective west” wants to “finally” defeat Russia. It is a land of moronic sexually depraved rapist-looters.

    “the AngloZionist Empire was always racist at its core, and that empire is still racist: for its leaders, the Ukrainian people are just cannon fodder, an irrelevant third rate nation with no agency which has outlived its utility”

    Saker ignores how his glorious Red Russian Rapist Army invaded Ukraine from 1917-1921 and forced them into the USSR through rampant rape and murder, or how those same Russian’s deliberately starved tens of millions of Ukranians in the Holodomor, or how the Red Russian Rapist Army reinvaded Ukraine in 1943-1950 and raped and fought against Ukraine and the Ukrainian Freedom Fighters known as the Ukrainian Insergant Army. Racism is of course a meaningless Judaic propaganda construct. What is important here is how degenerate Russians behave when they put on a uniform and take orders from crypto-jews like Putin.

    If Ukraine repeats the Polish Gleiwitz incident where they go into Donbas and shoot up some Red Russian Rapist Army soldiers in order to provoke a Russian reaction, and then Putin and Russia lose a nuclear war and Moscow and St. Petersburg end up looking like Dresden in February 1945, then it will be “analysts” like Saker who will be to blame by refusing to tell the truth about the behavior over the last century of his beloved Red Rapist Russian Army.

  69. I enjoy being devil’s advocate here, so what about the following scenario:

    Ukraine will be the prize of the loser, as someone said. Over the past decades the West has thoroughly assessed the socioeconomic potential of Ukraine and decided it’s not worth a dime; moreover, it costs billions annually just to keep this sinking boat afloat. So, during the Obama/Biden administration, a decision was made that Ukraine should be divided, with Novorossia absorbed by Russia, some Western provinces by Poland and Hungary, and the remaining part left to its own destiny. This plan was largely agreed upon between Putin and Obama/Biden as part of the overall “New Yalta” deal to keep Russia away from China. The newly elected Ukrainian president, Poroshenko, agreed to play along.

    However, not everything went according to the plan. Critically, Kolomoyskyi, whom nobody liked and almost nobody took seriously, mobilised his vast resources and created “dobrobats” that inspired broader resistance to the Novorossia plan. Which subsequently fell flat, making angry not only Putin, but also Obama/Biden. That explains why Kolomoyskyi is now sanctioned for his actions in 2014-15, with a justification that amazed most observers.

    Now, back to today. Biden is in power once again, and it’s a rerun of 2014, except it’s willing Zelenski at the helm in Ukraine. and Kolomoyskyi is now embracing the grand plan. Most likely, Ukraine will attack in Donbas, probably in the middle of April, declaring Minsk agreements null and void, and receiving almost universal condemnation of the world. Russia, recalling the old Security Council decision approving the Minsk agreements, will declare itself a guarantor of the latter, and enter the battlefield with tragic consequences for the Ukrainian statehood, as Putin has once warned. Ukraine breaks apart, and Novorossia emerges as an independent state, to be later absorbed by Russia.

    I know it’s not what seems to be on the surface, but hey.. when is it that what you see is what you get?..

    It really doesn’t matter what the US thinks or says about Putin, the US is on its way out. Biden perfectly represents the USA of today, a half-dead corpse. The US won’t exist in 20 years, it won’t be nuked, it will just break up from internal struggles. Russia is a real nation, the US is not, it’s a garbage heap filled with rats all scurrying in different directions taking with them scraps of food. The US will start breaking up with Republican states declaring themselves independent, the Feds will try to stop it and the civil war will start. The more the US has internal squabbles, the more it will lose influence in the world. Looking at the mess the US is in now, it wouldn’t take much for foreign nations to hasten the breakup of the US.

    I agree, gay troll, despite not being familiar with the Sun Tzu strategy. Divide et impera is enough to the no longer so gullible moi.
    We definitely are played by both sides. If there truly are sides when it comes to true power. The author speaks of “russophobic frenzy not seen since the Nazi regime in Germany during WWII” and of the “Ukro-Nazi”. Having in mind that those “neo-Nazis” in Ukraine have been encouraged – and supported, and still are – by both “sides” in USA. Hard to figure out why the “powers” in Western countries are not regarded as Nazi… Poland’s puppets in power are an excellent example; they want war reparations from Germany, but this does not hinder them to support the Ukrainian “powers” in their hatred for all Russian.

    People with some insight into national socialism, both in theory and how it was practiced in Germany, the only country that ever introduced real national socialism, hardly can miss seeing that the Ukrainians have been thoroughly misled (by the usual suspects) to assume that their hatred for Russia will give them independence. A much easier task than in the West, as the Ukrainian society is a social and economic misery to all, except the oligarchs and the soo “nationalist” politruks”.
    Having said all that, I agree with the author of the article, that the narrative that reigns supreme outside Russia is extremely anti-Russian, Mr Putin being painted as the devil incarnate. By the way, only one person could win over President Putin on that one, namely Adolf Hitler…

    Your first sentence is spot on. But we need to understand who the ‘they’ is. The whole of this ‘they’ has two parts: Jewish and Germanic.

    For Jews, the hatred of Russia and Russians is first and foremost about hatred of Christendom. When Constantinople fell to Turkish Mohammedans, Russia was left to be the standard bearer nation of Christendom in the East. Later, Russian Cossacks ruled by Poland rebelled and waged a relentless campaign to freed of the yoke of Poles using Jews as their main tax collectors and otherwise evil government bureaucrats and bankers. That meant that eventually the majority of Jews who had lived, rather high on the hog, in the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth that had acted quite nastily to Russians came under direct rule by Russia. So Jews will always want to get even with Russians fro daring to not accept being cheated over and over and over by Jews backed by a large empire.

    For Germanic peoples, the hatred of Slavs is about the Germanic sense of might makes right applied to ethnic groups: they see almost all Slavs as almost always militarily weaker than Germanics and therefore fit to be conquered and made serfs of Germanic warlords.

    Jews, it cannot be stressed enough, immediately gravitated to Germanic culture. Yiddish is nothing more than a dialect of German for Jews, and Yiddish remained the main language of Jews living in Russia until after WW1.

    Angles and Saxons are Germanic; Anglo-Zionist Empire is Germanic.

    After the breakup of the Soviet Union the western managerial class wanted to rape and plunder Russia’s sizeable natural resources.

Also he tried to enforce the rule that Russian oil companies would stay in Russian hands. All of which were obstacles to the Clinton world order. We all know what the Clintons’ preferred tactic for dealing with human obstacles. Just look up Arkacide if you don’t. The dastardly Putin also had the gall to avoid the untimely death.

    The sad irony here is that the crypto-jews and hasbara agents commenting on UR love to blather on about “good jews”. We know from the Russian Revolution, the Holodomor, the Gulag, the NKVD, and the Kommisars and Barrier guards that Communist jews were (and still are today) definitely “bad jews”. Of course it was these bad jews that the NSDAP and the Polish resistance were fighting against. It was these “bad jews” who were terrorizing the Polish farmers and bringing about German retaliation. Meanwhile, it was the “good jews” that the Red Russian Rapist Army and their bad-jew partizan henchmen were murdering, all the while blaming their deaths on Germans.

    Another cruel irony for Poland in WWII was the murder of Sikorsky by Stalin and his blood sacrificing judeo-communist NKVD, with support from England. After Germany made public their findings about what Stalin and his psychopath jewish henchmen had done at Katyn Forest, Sikorsky and the remaining Polish patriots started having severe second thoughts about what the three Freemason Crypto-jews (Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin) were planning for Poland after V-Day. For this reason Sikorsky had to die, in this case in a mysterious plane “crash” in Gibraltar right at the critical turning point in the war, July 1943.

    When Biden’s (((handlers))) instructed him to blurt out “a killer”, old Joe was thinking what the black guys used to call each other to signify coolness, namely, “player” as in e.g., “what’s up playa’” or “he a playa’” but the old fart being from the ancient school was thinking that Putin is a real killer, not as in a homo-cide but as in a woman-killer, i.e., a playboy. So, in letter he observed the instructions from his masters but in spirit, he was egging on the Judo man to continue with his womanizing. What a double-crosser he turns out to be. Bibi isn’t too happy… Kamala, get ready girl!

  98. There is some chance for war in Ukraine but it is unlikely. Yes, the largest and most powerful faction in Washington has a visceral hate for Russia simply because it exists and consistently argues for international law and diplomacy in resolving disputes which the USA completely abandoned at the end of the Cold War. Having said that I will give the following reasons why the war is unlikely.

    One, the Kiev regime has no reason to believe it can prevail and even the corrupt Ukranian forces are not going to want to be cannon fodder for NATO. Kiev’s policies are fed by bribes from, mainly, the US and its vassal states in Europe. There is no reason to upset those arrangements.

    Two, the propaganda organs in the US are avoiding any mention of foreign affairs other than the usual ritual rituals people mainly ignore. In the US war is always prepared by a barrage of propaganda pieces on the State organs of propaganda. T

    Three, the finance oligarchs and an increasing consensus within the National Security/Deep State is more concerned with stamping out dissent than expanding military operations other than forcing China, Russia, and Iran to meet the feints and threats by increasing their security spending. In short the policies of this faction is to annoy enemies not destroy them. This keeps the reality of a swaggering Empire with its global reach, it’s almost unlimited ability to bribe and threaten leaders as well as covert operations, and its control of international finance intact. Another dramatic military adventure is not something the NY/CA based faction wants which is business as usual.

    Four, while European states are currently vassals of Washington Germany and France have made it clear they do not want a major war in the east or to completely break with Russia thus a US ordered invasion of eastern Ukraine could seriously fragment Europe not unite it as some foolish people in the Washington’s War Party envision.

    Putin’s Russia stubbornly refuses to admit how genocidal Bolshevism was, and how it menaced Ukraine and Germany on others, in an existential threat to their very DNA.

    It would hurt Russian vanity to ever admit that the Red Army rapists were anything other than ‘great liberators!’ >>vomit<<

    But now Russia herself, (rather than [occupied] Germany this time) is getting ready to be on the receiving end of Zion’s Satanic wrath.

    Perhaps as the propaganda war gets ramped up, and Russians are made to look like the very worst caricature of Nazis and aggressors, they might, at long last, FINALLY get it though their thick skulls exactly the very ((threat)) that menaced Germany. As ((it)) slaughters Russians in this new century.

    But I doubt it. When your world view, and your vanity and ego, are all propped up by a hallucination of your grandfathers being great liberators, who raped they way through Eastern Europe, and then decided to stay, it would be preferable to have a war with NATO, including Finland and Norway and Estonia and Poland and just about everyone else,

The Ukrainian Neo-Nazi brand is simply that – a brand given to those in the western Ukraine who opposed the Bolsheviks such as the pro-Czarist Cossacks, those who suffered from Stalin’s Holodomor. Ukrainians such as Vlasov viewed the Germans as liberators from Stalin. Yet, the Germans had no real intention of giving the Ukraine total independence because doing so would create a real nationalist opposition to the German occupation. The truth is that the people of the Ukraine are not ideologically aligned with traditional Nazi ideology.

    3. Russia, has a long standing interest in the Ukraine as far back Catherine the Great who asserted Russia’s permanent presence there. It is natural that modern Russia would want to protect its interests in the Crimea and the Black Sea. Sevastopol is key Russian, and any Russian leader would look like a weak leader to allow it to be surrendered.

    4. What is occurring in the Ukraine is a result of the U.S. military’s adoption of full spectrum dominance which is based on Mackinder’s heartland theory. Isolate Russia, while pivoting to Asia. It’s not working for various reasons. The first being the U.S. is technically bankrupt. The second being the U.S. is morally bankrupt. The third being is that the Russians and Chinese know how to use proxies to throw a wrench into the proverbial spokes of the U.S. wheel. They do have agency and are not helpless laggards. Indeed, the recent the exposure of Russian SVR agents in Italy and Romania demonstrate Russian agency. A great weakness in the NATO alliance is the fact that its expansion into Central Europe and its reliance on Israel has made it extremely vulnerable to foreign penetration (were those SVR agents given up to protect a deeper penetration?).

    5. The problem in the U.S. is from within. It believes its own propaganda and censorship regarding its historical development – more importantly what it thinks it did from 1917-1989. Because of the suppression of non-politically correct alternative thought (which is now categorized as racist or unacceptable within the universities and the military/intelligence agencies), the U.S. has developed a failed analysis of the world.

    6. The failed analysis has led to a continuation of Neo-conservative and Neo-liberal ideas of foreign policy despite the proven bankruptcy (literally) of those ideas. Neo-liberalism (defending the world for democracy and human rights) is basically the same as Neo-conservatism (which emphasizes the defense of Israel and preventing the emergence of a world rival). They are both based on U.S. military/economic dominance over the world order except for the fact that they are dressed up in different clothes.

    7. The world has moved on without the U.S. The U.S. position after 1989-1990 was squandered by the idea it could impose a New World Order militarily with offshoring and a cheap dollar. It is possible that the U.S. did not (does not) understand the consequences of Vietnam and getting out of Vietnam through triangularization. Instead, the U.S. leadership abandoned it’s people in the name of globalism and multiculturalism which has led to internal decay. The U.S. is in no position to enter into war with either Russia or China. Morally and economically, there is no will or leadership to pursue a conventional war even if a hubristic administration engages peripheral skirmishes. Any preemptive actions taken by the U.S. in hot-spot regions will only strengthen the national will of its opposition while dividing that of its own population. Moreover a second 9/11 will not unify the country. Internal infighting over who is to blame will not bring about national unity and the economic consequences would be devastating considering the already extreme levels of U.S. debt. The legacies of government lies and vilification of the U.S. by the press will further prevent unity despite government efforts to do so through the nightly propaganda report.

    “When your world view, and your vanity and ego, are all propped up by a hallucination of your grandfathers being great liberators, who raped they way through Eastern Europe, and then decided to stay, it would be preferable to have a war with NATO, including Finland and Norway and Estonia and Poland and just about everyone else,

    ..than to ever even hint that maybe Russia was also complicit in that disastrous war of the last century.”

    There it is in a nutshell. None of these central European countries trust Russia, or Putin, further than they can spit. They have been stabbed in the back too many times by “friendly Russians proletarians” who always end up only being interested in the Russian Empire. Lets face it, even after the collapse of the USSR and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Russia is still an empire, in fact, Russia is just as much a jew run and owned empire today as it ever was during the USSR.

    And one of the reasons all these central and eastern European countries are so hostile is, as Rurik states, because Russia, and Putin, bitterly cling to their fantasies about the Red Army as liberators.

    As a consequence we have the Baltics desperate to re-arm, Poland sponsoring Nato bases, Estonia desperately taking delivery of anti-tank missiles, Romania hosting US Marine bases and helicopter launch pads. Finland, Sweden and Norway, although they bitterly cling to the Judaic WWII narrative, are no less apprehensive of Russian lies about the “liberation” of Eastern Europe.

    Through Putin’s stubborn insistence on lying to “his” own Russian people about Judaism and jewish war crimes, Putin is lending support the lies of Nato and the IDF, about the forming of Israel and post war Europe. In doing so, he may purchase the support of the famous Red Russian Rapist Army, but Putin in exchange ends up alienating all of central Europe, and pushes them into the willing globo-homo arms of the US, Israel and Nato.

As part of a call with representatives from two of the US-led military bloc’s member states, Roman Mashovets, deputy head of the Office of the President, said that “such actions of the Russian Federation pose a challenge to the security of Ukraine and NATO, which must be balanced by joint efforts.”

    The missive revealed that one option Mashovets put forward was “joint activities, including military exercises of Ukraine and NATO.” These activities, it added “should include land, naval and air components. In addition, it is advisable to increase the level of combat readiness of troops in NATO countries bordering Ukraine.”

  114. AN IMPORTANT HEADS UP:

    In the event of war in Ukraine, Russia will likely win it rather easily. There is no real will in Europe to defend the bumbling and corrupt Ukraine. America will not be able to do much, and will lose face globally, and take a heavy hit on its economy.

    Afterwards, it is possible that Putin will be called “The Second Coming of Christ”, per the Revelation of St. John in the Bible. It is also possible that hidden (Tesla) technology – flying saucers – will be rolled out to pose as “angels”.

    This, of course, will be utter nonsense. The Revelation is not a prophecy, but a symbolic, mystical tract, written by a highly advanced mystic. The second coming of Christ will happen to every soul eventually – it is what is known as enlightenment also – when it finally realizes its own divine nature. The Antichrist mentioned in Revelation is the personal, egotistic consciousness of unrealized souls, tempted by and fallen for Cosmic Ignorance, or “Satan”. Both Christ and Antichrist are spiritual realities, not persons. Jesus was Christed, because he fully realized the Christ Consciousness. So was Krishna (notice the similarity in the names, too), King Solomon, and others throughout the ages – and so shall we all be, as Jesus said: “the things I do, ye too shall do, and greater things”.

    Putin is a tool of the same people who pull the strings in America and Europe – Jewish central bankers, Kabbalist Occultists, and their allied minions – as have already been stated in several comments in this thread. They are trying to recreate the literal symbols of Revelation by means of orchestrated events, in order to fool unwary Christians into thinking that it has been fulfilled, and then foist a personal “second coming of Christ”-impostor on them.

    Although Saker does not understand this, I am convinced that he is a well-meaning man, and not a willing and conscious propagandist.

    Here are two videos by Robert Sepehr about Tartaria. Sepehr contends that Tartaria was really the race of Attila the Hun who had red hair and blue eyes and was Aryan. He also makes the point that Persia was renamed to Iran because it is Aryan, and that the NSDAP Nuremburg laws exempted Iranians because they were of Aryan blood. Sepehr also explains that in the 1930’s 60% of Iran’s trade was with Germany, and this is why Churchill and Stalin invaded Iran and deposed the Shah in August 1941, months before the US entered the war. He then goes on to describe how Krym, and Crimea, were Aryan, in fact Tartarian. Sepehr also explains that Stalin and the Soviets destroyed all the history of the Tartars and the Aryans who lived all throughout what Saker and Putin try to claim is “Russia”. I guess there could be some valid reasons why the Ukrainians hate the Russians and want Crimea back.

    It really doesn’t matter what the US thinks or says about Putin, the US is on its way out. Biden perfectly represents the USA of today, a half-dead corpse. The US won’t exist in 20 years, it won’t be nuked, it will just break up from internal struggles. Russia is a real nation, the US is not, it’s a garbage heap filled with rats all scurrying in different directions taking with them scraps of food. The US will start breaking up with Republican states declaring themselves independent, the Feds will try to stop it and the civil war will start. The more the US has internal squabbles, the more it will lose influence in the world. Looking at the mess the US is in now, it wouldn’t take much for foreign nations to hasten the breakup of the US. It’s teetering on the edge of the abyss.

    We know who the biggest rats are. They’re the fattest ones who’ve had a climactic feast over the last 40 years – the US elite who now control the largest proportion of US wealth ever – even exceeding the extremes of the British aristocracy at its height or Imperial Czarist Russia.

    Their current problem is to avoid the fate of the British and Russian aristocracies.

    From a completely cynical viewpoint, it should involve the avoidance of major wars (the downfall of the British and Russian Empires) and locking the US into full totalitarianism.

    However, they don’t seem to have learnt this lesson, and are setting up Imperial wars (actually WW3) against Russia and China. I see this as quite likely to happen – guaranteed to be nuclear – and be devastating to major cities of both sides.

    Given that the victors (probably Russia and China) will have little or no interest in occupying the US (Australia/China could be a different story) then the US gets a new start as a planned de-militarized state incorporated into a Russian – Chinese world order, rather like Germany was incorporated in the Anglo US world order after WW2.

    It’s only one scenario, but would the US be worse place than it is a present?

    Weak leaders and ideologies which nobody really believes in do not inspire people to fight for their rulers. This is why the Russian monarchy collapsed, … (this is also one of the most likely reasons for the final collapse of the US as a state).

    To beg into rhetorical position “causes and mechanisms of the final collapse of the U.S.” in a sidebar which stated purpose is to disclaim context for understanding the dissolution of the U.S.S.R. is just weird language.

    The author admits going in he has no ideological or intellectual center on the subject, so what’s going on here? What points will be served?

    Let me indulge in Unz.com writers’ favorite rhetorical gambit, unbridled question begging: Could this author just be catapulting personally vetted anti-Democratic propaganda?

    BEWARE THE PSYOPS! There’s a simple rule: Whenever a polemic decries the psyops, we should assume it’s also psyops. At a certain point this all boils down to practices of persuasion by other means.

    Whatever this article is, it’s being done in a rhetorical style that follows the so-called journalism at Russia Today (RT) a web property which sole purpose is to agitate USA libertarians (i.e., Republicans) in the format of the Daily Mail and at which you can’t learn a single thing about what Russia is like today. RT insights on Russian life literally amount to simple photo ops of strategic nuclear bombers making incursions over the Aleutians. Drop one motherfuckers!

    Russia truly is nothing for an ordinary American fear. We know it, they know it and that’s fine, as it should be and it’s reciprocal.

    To whatever extent the USA is on a path to ruin, it is openly being destroyed by Republicans! And I’m sure it Russia pitches in as stupid sort of payback for Reagan by helping America eat its young.

    And

    I have already written about the absolutely disastrous situation of the Ukraine three weeks ago so I won’t repeat it all here, I will just say that since that day things have gotten even much worse: suffice to say that the Ukraine has moved a lot of heavy armor to the line of contact while the regime in Kiev has now banned the import of Russian toilet paper (which tells you what the ruling gang thinks of as important and much needed measures).

Let’s take “Diana” (most obviously not Diana Johnstone) and “her” blaming Putin for Little Georgie of our $orrow$’ recently (s)elected and more recently collapsing dictator in Armenia. He foolishly courted war with the Azeris (and Turks) over Nagorno-Karabakh and then did nothing to support them militarily with Armenian forces. So somehow this was Putin’s fault—even when he sent in peacekeeping forces to put a halt to the latest round of massacres of the Armenian people by the Donmeh and their new Sultan.

    Admittedly, I am confused about the “Russian” central bank. Has Putin somehow been compromised on this third-rail of economic politics? If someone has any good theories or info on this, I’d be most interested. But as for Putin possessing “dictatorial powers”. Ha.

    Seems like Russia’s oil trade with China is not done with dollars and neither is the Fed-note in play with their mutual cooperation agreement with Iran.

Starting with Germany, by using Poland like they’re using Ukraine today. As a battleground with raw grievances. The grievances between Germany and Poland were Danzig and the persecution of ethnic Germans under Polish rule. Today it’s ethnic Russians under (((Ukrainian))) rule.

    This is all a replay of the lead-up to WWII. Now they’re implementing WWIII, being fought on Ukrainian and Russian soil, with goyim slaughtering goyim, as they laugh all the way to the bank.

    About 1% of the entire planet knows the truth about WW2, and even fewer will talk about it. The respective politicians of every nation have their own cynical and expedient political reasons and personal reasons (greed, ambition, blackmail) for going along with the prevailing (Zionist) narrative. Putin is no different, but at least he has hinted at the truth, and drawn some blood by associating himself with Solzhenitsyn and his narrative in 200 Years Together.

    The Zionists leave little room to maneuver, but any politician who venerates Solzhenitsyn is pointing the way to the truth and providing hope for the future. This, in addition to what he’s done in Ukraine, Crimea, Georgia, Syria etc.. is why the Zionist totalitarians can’t stand him.

    What American politician has invoked 200 Years Together? None that I know of. Solzhenitsyn has largely been memory-holed in the West since his anti-Zionist masterpiece, just like the book itself.

    Keeping Solzhenitsyn alive alone is a massive blow to fake-Jew Zion’s puffed up magalomania that could ultimately lead to its demise. Standing firm against Zion geopolitical is unheard of in the whipped dog, brainwashed and brain dead mind of the Zion-occupied West.

    Partial truth. Yes to breaking up of the US, but along racial lines. Where you are wrong is assuming Russia is doing better. It is not, militarization does not help with food production, it is an empire holding together by force and now trying to take over other nations by force.

    Russia is not a “nation”. It describes itself as “multi-ethnic”. Somehow that’s being seen as better than the American shithole. But anyone can be Russian, as long as they speak the language, da?

    To have a nation you have to have at least 4 things in common: genes, language, culture and religion.

    Russia’s (the regular people and Russians only) fate is inextricably tied to that of the White world. It’s kind of like family, you may not like them, you may fight, or envy each other but you should see each other as being closer than the racial enemy.

  138. The zionists who are behind the covid-19 scam and psyop, covid-19 does not exist, it has never been isolated and therefore does not exist and the so called variants do no exist and this too is part of the war against nations and humanity that the zionists are waging via the charade of covid-19.

    Putin has to be aware of this covid-19 scam and psyop, so why is he going along with it, unless the vaccines that he is allowing are the flu vaccines and not the so called vaccines the western world is using, that are not vaccines but an operating platform designed to destroy the immune system, and in realty are a genocide operation aimed at hundred of millions , if not billions of humanity in an agenda to depopulate the earth.

    It appears that the zionists are also going to start a war with Russia in the Ukraine over Donbass and Crimea in a effort to destablize Russia and get rid of some so called useless eaters ie a favorite zionist expression, however if the zionists start a war with Russia, Russian tanks will be in Kiev in a couple of days and if need be , in Poland in a couple of weeks, and if need be , in Berlin in a couple more weeks, do not forget, the Russians have been there before and do not need a map.

    Now if the war goes nuclear , the zionists think they can survive in their DUMBs ie deep underground military bases that they have throughout the ZUS and Israel and ZBritain and ZNATO, but the rest of us can kiss our ass goodby, for this too will fit into the zionist genocide agenda for us useless eaters.

    He then goes on to describe how Krym, and Crimea, were Aryan, in fact Tartarian.

    Crimea is not Tartarian. Crimea has a long history that includes Goths, Khazars, Skifs, Alans and many others. The coastline of the Black Sea was occupied by the Genoa colonies. There were several Greek orthodox states in Crimea affiliated with the Byzantine Empire. The most important one, the Principality of Theodoro, outlived the Byzantine Empire when it was taken over by the Ottoman Turks and became a place of refuge for the Orthodox Cristians from the new Ottoman Empire. It was captured by Turks in 1475. Following the Ottoman victory, many Greeks from Theodoro fled to Moscow and founded some of the prominent Russian noble families.

    Crimea Khanate split from the Golden Horde in 1441, and that it is what normally referred to as the Tartar Crimea. The Golden Horde Tartars were invader that rules over the local multinational population, which was not Tartar. Crimea Khanate, which at the time was a protectorate of the Ottoman Empire, was defeated by Russia in 1783.

    Sepehr contends that Tartaria was really the race of Attila the Hun who had red hair and blue eyes and was Aryan.

    It’s the Russians, my friend, who have blond hair and blue eyes, but Tartars most certainly do not.

    Kosovo known as the Republic of Kosovo, is located in the central Balkan Peninsula. According to the CIA, Kosovo has a population of 1,882,018. Kosovo is the second-poorest country in Europe. Due to a high level of corruption and little contract enforcement, poverty is a huge problem in Kosovo.

    Unlike with Poland in 1939, there are no mutual defence treaties of the Western powers with Ukraine.

    Unlike Poland in 1939, Russia is a nuclear power that can destroy the USA (granted, at the cost of own destruction, and at a huge cost for the rest of the world).

    It is highly unlikely that the West wants to have a war with Russia. This war is unwinnable for the West, because if for some reason the West starts winning, China will step in as they did in Korea, as they can’t afford to lose such a strategic ally as Russia.

    It is far more likely that all the West wants is to drag Russia to its side away from China, and all the sanctions, threats, insults, etc. are only a means to negotiate a better deal.

    Please allow me to correct that for you:

    “Russian false flag forces began shelling Donetsk airport (and some civilian targets) at around 7am local time, 2nd April.”

    Russia, and Saker has clarified in this article that USSR=Russia, attacked in aggressive warfare Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Bessarabia and Ukraine all in the last century. Of course just a little over one century ago Russia started WWI by attacking Austria and Germany. There is no reason to assume that this is anything else but another Russian false flag. Remember how the Red Russian Rapist Army loves to murder, rape and pillage. Especially when there is lots of free vodka.

    I didn’t say there wouldn’t be radioactive fallout, but nuclear winter is a bit of spin. And if you look at Chernobyl and Fukushima (or Ramsar and other high background radiation spots on the planet), a bit of radiation doesn’t cause nearly as much harm as the linear no-threshold model predicts.

  149. While much of the description of Western (really imperial, the others “states” are no more than obsequious lackeys) anti-Putin (actually, anti-Russian) psyops is correct, I take exception to the statement about “major war”. Clueless and hapless imperial “analysts” and planners do hope to transform the war in Donbass into a major Russo-Ukrainian war. But “clueless and hapless” is the key here. If Ukies make a military move against Donbass republics and Russian army intervenes, Ukie military would disintegrate as fast as Georgian military did in 2008. Those “warriors” are “heroes” against unarmed civilians, especially elderly, women, and children. Facing a prospect of fighting a real army, they would run away as fast as they can, leaving behind hardware, arms, and ammo. Banderites were always pathetic cowards, and neo-banderites inherited this defining characteristic.

    My bet is that Russian army would stop where it wishes and then withdraw (like in Georgia in 2008) to avoid feeding millions of clueless and leaderless people in current wreck of former Ukraine. Most likely only full Donetsk and Lugansk regions will be permanently liberated. I am sure that Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics officially declared full respective regions as their territory with the approval of the Kremlin. I don’t think Russia would want a greater burden than Donbass. I believe it would leave the rest of Ukraine to rot by itself.

    Bottom like is, major war is unlikely. The Empire and its sidekicks would quickly end up with more egg on their ugly faces, that’s all. The Empire and its lackeys would raise a lot of stink, but they are too cowardly to do much else.

    As far as Iran goes, it recently signed a long-term strategic agreement with China. So, if the same clueless “analysts” plan an aggression against Iran, this would only increase the number of eggs on their faces. It would serve them right, though.

He specifically spoke about hong kong; just because the US has been meddling in the situation and wants to stoke up opposition to china does not mean that the regular people of Hong Kong do not have LEGITIMATE issues with their Chinese overlords. In short, the world is not binary and black and white, and the enemy of your enemy can still be your enemy.

    The Saker continues to claim that Biden “illegally seized power.” He apparently does not know that on over 70 occasions courts rejected Trump’s claims. Many of the judges were Republicans. Some of the judges who rebuked Trump were appointed by him. In Wisconsin, Trump’s stipulated in writing that there was no vote fraud. Rudy Guiliani made inflammatory claims about vote fraud outside of the courtroom but when asked if he was asserting that there was vote fraud before a Pennsylvania judge, Guiliana stated that he was not making any claims of fraud. Trump made no claims of vote fraud in Arizona whatsoever. The lawyer that claimed that the Dominion voting machines were fixed is now saying in court that those assertions were so unbelievable that she is not liable in a libel lawsuit because they were claims that no reasonable person would believe. Does the Saker believe that Trump perpetrated fraud when he claimed in court that there was no fraud in Pennsylvania or Wisconsin or does he believe he was lying when he claimed that there was fraud outside of a courtroom? It has to be one or the other. Does he believe the claims about Dominion voting machines fixing the vote even though the person making the allegation has stated in writing before a court of law that the claims were obviously something that no reasonable person would believe?

    Adroit and cunning, when besieging a city the Tatars promise amnesty to the population; but once taking it, they just go ahead and slaughter everybody. It’s not that they don’t believe in justice. Giles makes a rather perceptive comment about their tribal mentality and notions of right and wrong: “This they doo uppon a rule they have, vz., that jutice is to be practised but towardes their owne.”

    Much of the Tatar economic system of that time was based, according to Giles Fletcher, on human trafficking: “The chiefe bootie the Tartars seeke for in all their warres is to get store of captives, specially yong boyes and girls, whom they sell to the Turkes or other their neighbors.” As the Tartar warriors ride into battle, their auxiliaries bring along giant baskets, with which to carry their captives back, like caged birds.

    A big war could lead to unintended consequence, and none of the big players want that.

    It could be that they see the dollar in peril, and with it, their iron domination of the planet.

    If Russia (and China and others) could potentially defenestrate them from their position as global hegemons, then I would think everything’s on the table.

    We don’t know what kind of weapons they have. Just 9/11 gave us evidence of what in all probability were directed energy weapons, that can vaporize steel from a great distance.

    They’ve even leaked some of their laser weapons tech, and God knows what kind of biological weapons they’ve come up with.

    I not any kind of weapons expert, or any expert beyond my narrow trade, but the one thing I do think I know with some certainty, is that if the global paradigm of them being on top, and controlling the money and just about everything else, were ever to be seriously threatened, (like it was in National Socialist Germany for instance), then from everything I’ve glimmered living on this planet for six decades, is that they’d rather blow it all to smithereens, and leave the Earth a smoldering, dead rock in space, than ever risk the possibility of being deposed of their iron grip on human destiny.

    This is the whole motivation of their Sampson Option. If they can’t be in control, in absolute terms, then they’d rather see it all rendered into dust.

    If the pandemic would end in few months, as estimated by Russian responsible could happen in Russia around August, neither Pfizer, Moderna, nor Astra Zeneca, nor the corporations preparing the vaccination passports, and the control of the people and dissent through managing of big data, would reap billionaire benefits taken out from the Western taxpayers to brace the coming crisis…

    What stands out in present day Russian pop culture is the shift from imitation of western motifs, to themes focused on Russian culture. Traditional music has always been there of course, but I’m talking about music that appeals to the younger generation.

    For example, take the wildly popular band Нейромонах Феофан, who draw on ancient Russian themes sung in Church Slavonic, and feature a bear as one of the performers. Then there’s Наадя, Alkanost, Манижа, Отава Ё, Серебряная Свадьба (Belarus), Фабрика, and of course Слот and Нуки – to name just a few artists exploring Russian themes in their music and performance.

    This refocus on Russia Culture has even spawned an entire genre called Russian Hard Bass, with its overt patriotism, mocking of “western spies” and satirical portrayal of Gopnik Culture.

    Popular music is a solid gauge of what young people find inspiring, and since they are the future, it’s worth paying attention to what they find important, and Russian themes are right at the top of their list these days. I find that very encouraging.

    What is it with Schuetzkorps? Now he beatifies the Tatars and insinuates that they were blue-eyed and blond-haired as allegedly were the Huns. From my excursions throughout much of European history it became clear to me that the primary economic activity of Tataria was the enslavement of Slavic villagers. Somewhat similarly to the Khazars, the Tatars were not themselves all that interested in retaining the majority of their captives, except, perhaps for some of the most choice of engaging girls and youths. Their M.O. was rather to sell those they had enslaved on the flesh-markets of Istanbul after the Ottoman destruction of the Byzantine empire. The Tatars had become accustomed to serving the Terrible Turks and aided them in maintaining their reign over various captive peoples.

    Plainly and simply Scheutzkorps is a hater, both a homophilophobe and a Russophobe. Oh yes, he also doesn’t like Joos and appears to be unable to use discernment between connected Judaics, ordinary people who happen to be descended from one of the five or so Judaic tribal nations and that relative handful of noble Jews who are a credit to humanity.

    One must credit the guy for nosing around to unearth various data such as the linked material on the Tatars, information which inevitably buttresses his preconceptions and prejudices. He is a dogged researcher and quite dedicated to memes and tropes which are part of his Weltansschaung.

    So, just to focus on the most critical item, financial crisis, are you saying that 17 months of pouring digits, ie. $, into the overnight markets is failing? Thus, they are desperate, terrified of losing control and planning war as an out?

    Conjob-19 as a means to distract but also to seize the necessary powers to achieve their aims?

    I think the Western Judaeo-Masonic maniacs are out of ideas and running out of time. This whole problem could be solved by taking a few hundred ‘bankers’, murderers and criminals is more accurate, into custody. Trials one day. Executions ar dawn the next. The problem is that these people own the governments and have infiltrated nearly every country.

    They can’t convince the public to go to war without another 911 type false flag event. I think they have destroyed the credibility of the Western media over the last 31 years; they aren’t selling Conjob19 very well and I doubt war fever can be induced under these circumstances. I could be wrong.
    I just don’t see these guys as being very bright. If they had decided in the 2008 gfc that the weak banks had to go and proceeded accordingly they would be doing much better right now. I see this as a case of Bankers being so greedy that they blinded themselves to basic facts. Their own corruption is now destroying them and most people would cheer for their destruction.

    I think you are both right to a point. It is true that formerly Christian Russia was taken over and wrecked by a gang of grizzly (((Bolshevik))) terrorists. They killed the king and his family, and proceeded to liquidate millions of Russians and Ukrainians. However, it is also true that tens of millions, if not the majority of Russians eventually ended up going along with them. Fighting the soviet war of aggression against much of Europe, participating, and grudgingly or even enthusiastically supporting communism, atheism, and all the other Bolshevik poison. After Stalin, the old guard Bolsheviks were not even really in direct control anymore. Stalin was a monster, and was not even Jewish. Militarily, politically, and ethnically, I think Russia and the soviet union CAN be considered as successor states which share much in common, while also having distinct historical differences. In short, whether or not the Russians can be considered soviets or vice versa depends on a number of factors and what you are choosing to focus on and what specific parameters the discussion is taking on. They are ideologically divergent, but in practice there is heavy overlap.

    All you say is true.

    I agree Putin ended the oligarch’s raping of Russia, although there are oligarchs who are allies of Putin.

    Yes. Your comparison of the Russian Revolution to the U.S. today has been on my mind. I was watching the Fall of Eagles recently. Part 7 or 6 that covered the Revolution of 1905. The role of Rachkovsky and the Okhrana and how the Tsar should deal with the rebellion resonates with the capital riot and what is happening in the U.S. today. I see more comparison to Wiemar Germany than the Russian Revolution. I do not think we have reached the same stage as the Russian Revolution yet. There is a lot of talk, but no real fighting except for minor street fights. Indeed, U.S. Jews seem to be doing the same thing they did in Wiemar Germany. This point is near irrefutable.

    I think that Jewish interests currently in power will suffer the consequences for their promotion of “wokeness.” The “woke” will turn on them – if they have not already. Maybe they think they can control them, by assuming positions of power and directing the woke against Heritage America. Indeed, this has been the Jewish strategy all along. Their way to power is by destroying Heritage America.

    Yes, I have read the Forced War. I own that expensive book. Halifax did create the problem and used Poland to make war. In this case, Russia is not going to war for the ethnic Russians within Western Ukraine, but they will go to war to hold on the Sevastopol if Ukraine makes a move on it.

    It comes down to perception of who is the aggressor. It is the Trostkyite strategy. If the Ukraine moves on the Autonomous Republic which Zelensky has threatened to do with Decree No. 117/2021, then Russia will likely prevail in the court of world opinion. The Central Europeans will not go for a proxy war provoked by U.S. aggression. Germany certainly will not. Poland may or may not. It’s government is not aligned with the Biden administration’s agenda nor have they ever been favorable to Jews except when the Jews seized power in Poland after the Second World War. Neither country has anything to win with a major conflict in the Ukraine. Estonia, Latvia, and Belarus would be supportive because they want to use the U.S. to assert their independence, but their contribution would be negligible.

    I do not think “woke” America will not be supportive of any type of protracted war. They may support a bombing mission (which I totally oppose), but not escalation. The “woke” want cultural hegemony and wealth redistribution. A sustained conflict with Russia would derail their agenda. The Neocons and Neoliberals may want conflict with Russia, but the masses do not. Foreign adventurism would likely bring more civil conflict and the elites want stability. They do not want their markets disrupted. They are co-opting the “woke” in order to preserve their markets. Look at how corporate America has adopted “wokeness” and look how the “woke” has accepted their support. A real fight with Russia in the Ukraine would be hard to explain to the “woke” even by corporate America. I do not think it would be possible for the the media to turn half of the U.S. into fascist Russian traitors. Even if it did, that would mean civil conflict making it nearly impossible to pursue a foreign conflict. The U.S. has no real business in the Ukraine except for oil. The woke may be historically ignorant but they will not go for any protracted war in a far away land for oil even if the establishment tries to dress it up as a perpetual war for democracy and peace.

What happened to those Japanese? Every one of them was employed in teaching positions in American universities after the war on return for their medical experimental data.

Putin, and the Russian empire, are willing to take the planet to WWIII in order to keep Crimea. Donbas and south Eastern Ukraine are important territory for the new Russian empire to hold and control in order to keep Crimea. Putin is as horny to get the Donbas back inside the Russian empire as Tsar Nicholas was to get control of Constantinople and the Bosphorus. This was the bait the jews used to get the Tsar to invade Austria and Germany in 1914.

    Putin is a whore to the jews, and is likely a crypto-jew himself. There is no evidence that he cares more for ethnic Russians than ethnic jews. Zelensky too is a jew, and Ukraine too is a whore for the Jews. Biden and the US are also jew whores.

    If war breaks out in Ukraine, it will be because it is good for the jews. As Gutle Schnapper Rothschild said: “if my sons did not want war then there would be none”. So if Putin gets his marching orders from Jerusalem, he will follow them.

The “enslavement” of serfs who were already owned by their jewish and gentile lords 500 years ago is worse than the deliberate starvation of 10’s of millions of Ukrainians 90 years ago?

    I don’t have a dog in this fight, Ukraine vs Russia. In my opinion, both are too big and should be broken apart. The Russian empire is an artificial control structure convenient for looting and control by the real jewish owners, known as “the oligarchs”. The same applies to the EU and the US. Russia has no more right to “own” Crimea, or Chechnya or Siberia than the US has to Hawaii, Alaska or even Texas and Montana.

    But the real issue here is that this entire “conflict” in Ukraine a blatant yid dialectic problem created and manipulated through their control of the lying media. Russian “patriots” love to rant about macho things the Red Army, their new hypersonic missiles, Kalashnakovs, their S400 and S500 missiles, and most of all about “Evil Nazis”. Of course they assiduously avoid mentioning the fact that the entire country belongs to jews, just like the US and the EU.

    My wife came very close to death in early 2018 during the flu season, which, in the UK led to 50,000 excess deaths. My local hospital emergency department was overwhelmed, as it is nearly every winter.

    Nobody called for a lockdown and nobody started a mass vaccination programme for the entire planet. In the event there more excess deaths in 2020 (following a mild 2019) but one has to wonder how many were due to the lockdown itself. For example the Office for National Statistics identified 26,000 people who died unnecessarily between March and September because they did not receive hospital treatment.

    I think the lockdown is the answer to the experimental vaccine, and not the other way around. And much as I sympathise with Russia, i am puzzled as to why they went along with this, although to a lesser extent than the West.

    The separatists in eastern Ukraine just announced that those born from 1994 to 2003 will start to be conscripted for military service.

    In addition, the EU is accusing Russia of initiating “a conscription campaign in the Crimea peninsula”…

    As far as Putin, why did he invite Jews to Russia? Why is he friends with Chabbad Lubavitch?

    Most Jews left Russia after 1974. The Yeltsin Constitution was written by and for American Jews. Putin has recently changed the Russian Constitution. He has made it very difficult for these Jews or their offspring to return to Russia and enter politics or the civil service. He knows that it is only a matter of time before the Neocons and Israelis rush back to Russia.

    No wonder they hate Putin. 🙂

    1. modernist-globalist, and
    2. internal-national (but predominantly conservative)
    groups in the Russian leadership (includes advisors, ministers, executives, etc…).
    Putin makes the balance, and many times have the final word over their arguments.

    This is an old interview-documentary:

    This Khazar hypothesis is the single most stupid cope by Christians out there.

    The Hebrew-Khazar hypothesis is not the Khazar hypothesis. The Hebrew-Khazar hypothesis is that supernatural evil exists within a sect of the Hebrew people that Moses fought, but has come to dominate Judaism. The Khazar hypothesis is basically that the Khazar’s have nothing whatsoever to do with the with ancient Hebrews; that they’re completely “white” and European devils.

    The Khazar hypothesis is actually a white-hating “cope,” whereas the Hebrew-Khazar hypothesis states that evil seed Hebrews — possibly even older than Hebrews — have been continuously on the move from nation to nation, wreaking havoc in the world.

    As far as Putin, why did he invite Jews to Russia? Why is he friends with Chabbad Lubavitch?

    Why did Hitler work with evil seed Hebrews on things like the Transfer Agreement? To get them the hell out of Germany!

  229. ELABORATION – WHAT IS GOING ON

    We are eternal souls – sparks of One Divine Creator, of many names.

    [MORE]

    The different religions are built on the experience of soul consciousness by their founders, fitted for the times and climes they lived in. The ultimate aim of every soul is to realize soul-consciousness itself, at which point it will be freed from the cycles of reincarnation.

    Time moves in rhythmical cycles, rising and falling through 4 ages, from a material age at the bottom of the cycle, to a spiritual age at the top of the cycle.

    The Earth came out of a material age, a Kali Yuga, in year 1750, and with a 200-year chaotic change period, it was finally exited in 1950 – and we are currently in an ascending Dwapara Yuga, with a different vibrational pattern – love and creativity are connected to it. It seems worthwhile to think of cymatics when considering these ages, and the periods in between them. See, e.g. 2 minutes –

    The cycle of ages is explained by the sage Sri Yukteswar, Paramahansa Yoganandas guru, in his book “The Holy Science” (available on PDF).

    The “elites” are trying to build a system on the old Kali Yuga template, and they are basically flying blind. Their ideas of economy are wrong, and their ideas of human nature are wrong. The whole Corona- and vaccine-push are based on behavioural theory, which does not include free will, God, love, or inspiration. Their ideas of technology are wrong, too, and their vaunted “Singularity” is never going to happen. Computers have the level of consciousness of the silicon chips they are built on – the same as rocks – and they will never be self-conscious, intelligent, or have a will of their own. Therefore, whatever else happens, the plans of the “elite” are not going to turn out as they think.

    There used to be a world-wide, high-level civilization, at the peak of the last cycle of ages, and it was degraded as the ages descended again, and it’s knowledge lost. Some of it was kept in e.g. mythology, and in Qabbalistical writings, and in lineages of great yogis in India, but much of it has been degraded and gravely misunderstood. One can see remnants of this high-level civilization all over the world – here is a very good video on it, full of photographic evidence – 1 hours, 25 minutes:

    When looking at religions, it is highly worthwhile to consider in what age they were expressed – the outward religious experience for a descending Dwapara Yuga is vastly different from that of an ascending Dwapara Yuga – although the Eternal Wisdom they are based on does not change. Keeping this in mind goes a long way towards explaining e.g. why Judaism (founded in ca. 3000 BC, at the beginning of the last descending Dwapara Yuga) is based on strict precepts on what should *not* be done. As the ages descend, people become increasingly foolish. As they ascend, the opposite is true. Jesus lived 500 years before the low point of the cycle, year 500 AD, a bit over half-way into the last descending Kali Yuga. 500 AD, the last ascending Kali Yuga, that ended recently, began.

    The nuts-and-bolts-basics of spiritual practice are thoroughly and clearly explained in Swami Vivekanandas “Raja Yoga” (available on PDF). For a contemporary perspective on spirituality and the world, specifically America, I cannot recommend Les Visible highly enough – his latest blog can be found at: http://www.visibleorigami.com/2021/04/schizophrenia-is-like-cholesterol-there.html

    The more spiritual light we can shine into the world, the quicker the dark dealings of the foolish elites can be countered and dissolved. We are currently on track to higher vibrations – the next high point is in ca. 12.000 years.

    Good luck, and Godspeed!

    Nationalism, to the fervor of the Germans or Japanese last century is supremacist. Russians have historically not expressed the supremacist emotion imo, so nationalism just implies fair interaction with other nations.

    You are probably aware that the “german supremacists” invaded poland in september 1939. Guess who also invaded poland in september of 1939? the USSR. The Soviets invaded and brutally occupied half of Europe, for nearly half a century. They killed millions of their own people, and millions of civilians of other nations. The Russians were also involved in wars of aggression all around their eastern boarder for centuries prior. Granted, Putin seems at least level headed and far more reasonable than the puppet politicians of the west. However, to say that Russian nationalism just implies fair interaction with other nations, is absolute hogwash. The historic record proves you totally wrong.

    Ukraine has lost Crimea and the Donbass. Ukraine will also lose gas transit fees if and when NS2 is completed. It stands to reason that Ukraine will want to cut her losses and do something the save those transit fees. But NS2 has not been cancelled despite all efforts because the Germans really need more and cheaper gas, given their push to retire nuclear and coal-burning energy. Renewed hostilities in the Donbass are the last chance to blow up NS2. Therefore, the Ukraine has a strong incentive to restart the Donbass war, but they need a small war, not a big war, just enough to cancel NS2. Unfortunately for them, the Kremlin has said that any attack on the Donbass or Crimea will have consequences for Ukranian statehood. There lies the conundrum for the Ukraine. They want a small Donbass war to blow up NS2 but the Russians are promising to give something much bigger in return.

    He himself is very conservative, yet there is a notable “modernist” fraction in the present elite and he listens to them too and sometmes act based on their advice.

    In personal power he not interested that much: he always had it based on personal qualities. As soon as turn up personally dominates either at front or from the background. Always did even as young KGB agent in Germany.

    Putin interested in order, a static order. Or at least the “look like orderly” illusion on the surface.
    There were a “documentary” actually western propaganda called “Generation Putin”.

    But this propaganda catch properly where does lead this static order.
    Anything which is not “mainstream-official Russian” is supressed, opressed, silenced. What falls outside the ever increasingly regulated rules to play easily lead unfavorable consequences.
    BUT: all the problems are present only hidden with a curtain: an illusion of order.
    Girl 1 fears from authorities, the only reason why not more radical/ cheeky.
    Girl 2 states the only reason she not goes publicly with a rainbow flag in support for minorities: she would be beaten up badly.

    All the problems are present: there are also liberals, feminists, anarchists, genderist, etc… but all the problems are supressed/ distanced from the public, comes new and new legalisations to cover it, NOT SOLVED anything by roots.

    They made a static-bureaucratic order and an image of the organised, orderly, powerful Russia/ Putin. This is an image which can last for several more years.
    As soon as this opression/ regulation machine stops working comes chaos either similar to the 90`s Russia, or the recent “mostly peacful protests in the US”.

    All of this because the Russian elite, includes Putin did not SOLVE most of the problems in society, but supressed them (mostly limited by regulations). This is the conservative way: the “all right” country. No matter how hard regulators try this will blown, probably years after Putin goes, but eventually will. Problems need to solved not supressed/ “if we don`t talk about them, not exist”.

    So not: the main goal is not the power.
    Their main goal is to maintain this enforced order/ illusion and avoid chaos and anarchy, and break down any attempt from the outside which can make turmoil/ support trublemakers (western backed opposition).
    But no matter what they do, no matter how severely punished even to critic leaders, “Generation Putin” did grow up in a relative order and safety, so many of them want unlimited anarcho-liberalism and tantrum over the “bad daddy” who made some order and safety after the 90`s chaos.

    By other words: Putin and all who supports this static order on the surface dig their own graves: because they provide some order and safety and who grows up in that often wants the opposite.
    Just like many youngsters want in the west communism, something what they did not experience in their own skin.

    Very well said.

    Not only Yeltsin & Co were not hounded by his successor, but Putin actually authorized the establishment of the ‘Boris Yeltsin Presidential Library.’
    Yeltsin caused immense damage to Russia, but by all accounts he did not do it maliciously: he was simply too drunk, or too much of a trusting simpleton to know that Russia was being looted behind his back by people he trusted.

    Putin’s actions will establish a precedent for future Russian leaders.
    In tin-pot dictatorships the current dictator and his followers desperately cling to power (…i.e. much bloodshed), because they know that as soon as they lose power, they will either be jailed or ignominiously exiled……if they are lucky. (unlucky ones are ‘suicided’ or are shot).

    In the US no matter how lousy a POTUS was, they are still accorded respect and other benefits due the Office of the President. Hopefully, Russia will continue the precedent that Putin wisely established.

    His decision to waive prosecution against Yeltsyin was wise. If you can’t provide an escape path for a leader you create the incentive for them to grasp tightly to the reigns. If you allow prosecution you encourage vendetta, blood feuds and all sorts of atrocious behaviours.
    What Putin does is deliberate and thoughtful. He has bought Russia a lot of time. If the next leader can continue that then Russia will be close to where it needs to be. Hopefully, the Silk Road 2 will get built and trade can spread over Eurasia eliminating poverty and uniting nations in mutual-dependence.

    Why ‘join’?
    (Same has been argued about Belarus by Russian-ancestry posters on various UNZ threads.)

    Why not several independent and interdependent Slavic states?
    Anglo-Americans rule the world in part thanks to that stratagem: England, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand vote as one block at the UN, and act as one in the interests of the Anglosphere. Why can’t Slavic peoples do something similar?

    UN is a dysfunctional organization for sure, but is very useful to those who know how to use it for global propaganda purposes: to put a fig leaf, as it were, on their aggressions, for example. Several independent Slavic states, members of UN, voting as a block (plus China, Iran, Syria, etc) can effectively counter the AnlgoAmerican (+NATO,+Israel) block. Russia (and China) have veto power at the UN, but numbers are just as important.

    Why can’t Slavic peoples do something similar?

    Because Poles, Bulgarians – well, maybe not Slavs stricto sensu but Orthodox and Slavic language speaking -, Croats, Slovenians, so-called Bosniaks, so-called Montenegrins, so-called Northern Macedonians, so-called Ukrainians… Have I listed enough reasons or do you need that I elaborate further?

  264. @Avery

    I agree that it might be better to have both Donetsk and Lugansk People’s republics, governing their entire regions, independent, like South Ossetia. By “join Russia” I mean either actually joining as additional RF subjects (like Crimea and Sevastopol), or becoming independent Russia-friendly states. But inside DPR and LPR the people who want to join Russia outnumber those who want independence by ~4:1. That might be a reaction to Ukie aggression: they feel safer being protected from Ukie bandits directly, rather than indirectly. Strong mutual defense agreements (like with South Ossetia) might alleviate their concerns, but in modern world people tend to distrust any signed agreements, seeing how the US wantonly leaves and breaks them.

    As a person who grew up in Lugansk and has many friends and acquaintances there, I think that if the people were convinced that Russia would protect them from Ukies, they would agree to either option.

    Modern day descendents of Khazars and Jews have completely different genetic markers.

    I doubt that. I bet there’s a lot of Zionists who are Hebrew-Khazar mix.

    I was curious about myself as I am a white looking Jew with blue eyes and light skin. Yet my genetic distance report showed the typical Jewish result with a DNA profile similar to Southern Italians.

    You’re a Hebrew with blue eye’s and light skin. I doubt you’re a Jew. If you were a true Jew, you would be hunting Hebrew heretics, just like the founder of the Jewish religion, Moses.

    You Hebrew mutt chameleons are like the English mutt chameleons, a bunch of schizophrenic Shakespearean drama queens who play at this role or that, and come to believe their method. You’ve been acting so long, you don’t know who you are anymore, hence you’re nobody and nothing. Yet you go around enforcing your Nobody identity at the point of a gun.

    Hebrew-Khazar-Polish Zionist Netanyahu (real name Mileikowsky), “King of the Jews,” is a prime example of this.

    I don’t think having non-repayable debt is unique to the Ukraine, I know of another country that defaulted on its debts not that long ago (wink wink). Frankly, most of the Western countries are for all intents and purposes bankrupt, their debts not repayable. The US is bankrupt, the only way it can “repay” its debts is by destroying the currency and that’s fully equivalent to declaring bankruptcy. As an “American”, do you own that one?

    The Ukraine never had a chance, it’s being raped by the jews on one side and threatened by Russia on the other. IF Russia and Russians was awesome, you would be there, “the Ukies/Ukronazis” would want to be with or around you exactly the same way they think the EU or NATO is somehow a salvation not realizing the parasite rules them all.

    I have no more obligation to believe Putin than I have to believe you. To the best of my knowledge (as half-Ukrainian born in Lvov, which makes banderites go bonkers) Russians and Ukrainians are two closely related nations. It is an open question whether Ukrainians would be better off as an independent state or as part of Russia. Current “independence” degenerated into unconditional subservience to globohomo, which is probably the worst thing as far as Ukrainians’ interests are concerned. On the other side of the equation is the fact that many nations live inside RF, some having their autonomous republics, some with lesser autonomies, some w/o any defined autonomies. After all, RF is a federation, which Ukraine should have been to survive.

    Why not find a more worthy opponent, like say, turkey and sweep the roaches into the sea and retake Constantinople instead?

    Erdogan, his indisputable stupidity notwithstanding, behaves a lot more rationally than Ukies. Besides, he is not guilty of mass murder of Russians and Ukrainians, Ukies are. Russia does not choose its opponents, its opponents choose to be what they are (and suffer the consequences).

Neither were the Anglos present in the history of the North America. However, even you won’t claim that the North America hasn’t belonged to them now for the past 2 hundred years. There are plenty of other examples of how the population of a land – and ownership – changes in the course of history. The Barbarian conquest of Rome comes to mind, and the Arab or Ottoman conquest as well.

    Over the centuries in its struggle against the Golden Horde, Russia acquired many territories formerly belonging to the Horde. Later in 18th century Russia also fought with the Ottoman Empire and its satellites, which eventually resulted in the conquest of Crimea Khanate. That latter entity BTW was quite aggressive and even succeeded in capturing Moscow at one point for a short time.

In fact, it’s the West that want to compel Russia to economically support the nut case that is today’s Ukraine. Russia will only fight if Ukraine openly attacks Donbass.

    The following is an English translation of a report that was posted on the official website of the Ukrainian military…

    The Soviets didn’t invade anything. (except Poland in 1939).
    The Red Army was chasing Wehrmacht back to Berlin: you seem to conveniently forget that Wehrmacht invaded USSR. And part of the invasion force consisted of troops from some of those European countries*. Did you really expect the Red Army to just let Nazi Germany remain undefeated and unoccupied after Soviets lost something like 25 million of their people defeating her, and simply stop at the border of USSR and let Wehrmacht go home and rest ?
    Get real.

    {” brutally occupied half of Europe, “}

    There was no so-called ‘brutal occupation’: East block countries were run by their own Communist leaders. No doubt there was political repression; but not by Russians. By Communist East Germans, Communist Hungarians, Communist Bulgarians,…..

    US (occupation) forces are still in Germany.
    And Japan.
    And South Korea.
    Subic bay US Naval (occupation) base only closed in 1992, about 40 years after WW2 ended.

    I am not aware of Soviets killing ‘millions of their own people….’ after WW2.
    Bolsheviks did kill large numbers of their own people: some deliberately, some due to criminal incompetence/negligence resulting in widespread famines.

    BTW: read up who most of the Bolshevik leaders were who killed those Slavic peoples and who also murdered Christian Russian Tsar’s family. They were Jews, mostly. (Also smaller numbers of Russians, Ukrainians, Latvians, Georgians, Armenians,…..)

    In any case, why is it a concern of outsiders if people of a country kill each other in a civil war? US Civil War cost about 700,000 killed, which adjusted for Soviet population at the time (1920s,30s) would be about 2 million US deaths. And?

    {‘…and millions of civilians of other nations.”}

    Care to list those nations?
    I am aware of large scale Soviet involvement only in Afghanistan, where the Western financed jihadists were trying to oust the Communist Afghan government, and Soviets intervened to help their communist ally. Yes, lots of Afghan civilians – 100s of 1,000s – lost their lives during that war.

    {“The Russians were also involved in wars of aggression all around their eastern boarder for centuries prior”}

    Centuries prior? Are you serious?
    Russians are no angels: but compared to others, such as AngloAmericans for example, they don’t go half the way around the world to invade countries that are no threat to them and kill** millions of civilians in the process. Russians operate in their own periphery, when their security is credibly threatened.
    _________________________
    * Hungarian and Romanian invaders were at the Battle of Stalingrad.
    Where they were promptly wiped out, together with the German invaders.

    ** Civilians were not killed deliberately for the most part, but the war instigated/initiated killed about 2-3 million civilians in Viet Nam, for example. Iraq war civilians death estimates are about 500,000. And so on.

    The USSR had a population of 205 million during ww2; they were allied with and heavily supported by the USA (135million) and the British empire (some 530 million). Not to mention numerous other countries that played a smaller role. Germany had a population of some 70 million. They were LITERALLY outnumbered 10 to one in men and material.

    The Russians lost 5 men for every one killed against Germany for much of WW2. Against Finland, they lost at a similar ratio. Germany lost because they were utterly overwhelmed from all sides. The soviets were hugely incompetent, and only “won” thanks to overwhelming advantages in territory, men, supplies, etc, to a factor of 10 to one.

    The point still stands that the Germans were hugely outnumber, MANY times over in men and material. Just looking at a map of the world which shows axis vs allied makes the case clear. The Germans far outfought the Russians in both world wars, and only lost due to being utterly overwhelmed. Your foolishness and ignorance is on display here for everyone.

    lets go to town

    The Soviets didn’t invade anything. (except Poland in 1939).

    Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany, Poland, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Albania, Afghanistan, etc. Depending what borders you use, others as well.

    There was no so-called ‘brutal occupation’: East block countries were run by their own Communist leaders.

    You are either totally ignorant or a liar if you claim that the tyrannical governments of the eastern bloc were not satellites and puppets of the USSR. The communist governments of these countries maintained power through the ever present threat of soviet military intervention (the threat became reality in Hungary 1956) and various other forms of soviet coercion.

    It is historical fact that millions of civilians were killed by the USSR; in Russia, Ukraine, and many other countries. The ethnic Germans alone had millions of civilian deaths, mostly due to the USSR. Ron Unz has a couple pieces that touch on the subject. Huge number of polish civilians also were murdered.

    Centuries prior? Are you serious?

    Russia was involved in numerous wars on it’s eastern border, for hundreds of years. Some may have even been partially justified. However, they conquered and subjugated many other peoples, and the fact that they were called the Russian EMPIRE alone should be evidence of their aggressive expansion. Territorial expansion and empire building go hand in hand with wars of aggression, since Antiquity through the present day.

    Russians are no angels: but compared to others, such as AngloAmericans for example

    The British and American empires have oceans of blood on there hands. However, this does not exonerate the Russians or Soviets of their own crimes, which are many. The enemy of your enemy can still be your enemy. If you would break out of the binary idiocy you are immersed in, you would understand reality much better.

    Not quite correct, sir.

    The central dogma of molecular biology is: “DNA makes mRNA (transcription), mRNA makes protein (translation).” This is what you are citing, essentially.

    There are, however, three so-called special transfers, and one of them is reverse transcription: DNA being created from an RNA template.

    Such a template is the Pfizer and Moderna so-called vaccine. It uses a piece of mRNA to create the so-called spike protein of the so-called sars-cov-2 virus (which as we know has never been isolated). Typically, mRNA degrades very quickly, because the production of the protein it codes for is not something that would necessarily be beneficial if it occured elsewhere, that is, other than the location where it is needed.

    These mRNA “vaccines” deliver their mRNA coated in lipid nanoparticles, whose job is to stop or at least delay this degradation. That means that this mRNA is quite free to circulate elsewhere within the body, and that’s a far cry from the mRNA we synthesise all the time.

    The persistence of the lipid-coated mRNA segments, coupled with the enzyme reverse transcriptase, make it quite possible for one’s genome to be altered. So, yes, these mRNA “vaccines” can in fact alter one’s DNA.

  327. @Theophrastus

    Good points. Numerous vaccines have killed and maimed large numbers of children even before the mRNA ones came out. I think it is highly presumptive to think that the new vaccine simply won’t do anything and will be harmless.

    Reverse transcriptases do exist, but we have only a semi-lame one that extends telomers. RNA viruses have effective reverse transcriptases, but these are not supplied by the “vaccine”. As long as this lipid-coated mRNA is outside of cells, it is pure garbage.

    Lipid coating is there to help RNA get across cell membrane (nucleic acids can’t cross the membrane by themselves). mRNA can only be used by ribosomes to make proteins if it’s uncoated (i.e., lipids are removed). mRNA in the cytoplasm can potentially encode proteins, but it needs to remain there for some time. Cytoplasm is full of RNases (enzymes that degrade RNA). As the result, even our own mRNAs coated by specific proteins in the nucleus before they are exported to the cytoplasm, live minutes to hours. mRNA that does not have proteins to protect it is a goner long before ribosomes can bind it and make protein.

    RNase molecules outnumber reverse transcriptase molecules in our cells by at least 100,000 to 1. Also, reverse transcriptase in in the nucleus, whereas mRNA must cross cytoplasm full of RNases before it has a chance to get into the nucleus. Besides, not everything is allowed through the nuclear pore: you need a special nuclear localization sequence (NLS)(which is a protein sequence) to get there. So, mRNA that is not bound to a protein containing NLS has no chance to enter nucleus.

    No mater what Pfizer, Moderna, or overpaid quack Fauci claim, these “vaccines” are pure fraud. The fraudsters make oodles of money, enough to buy sufficient number of politicians to support the fraud with the powers of the state. Bottom line: it’s a typical case of “let the buyer beware”.

    “on equal terms”

    I doubt people says that. War is no sport equality does not exist.

    ” They were LITERALLY outnumbered”
    Yes, they were outnumbered in manpower, resources, production capacity.
    Stalin actually did not believe for hours at the beginning of Barbarossa that Germany did attack the USSR, and dismissed reports for months before that when get reported from the preparations. Did not find it sensible enought that Germany attack them/ start 2 front war.

    “The Russians lost 5 men for every one killed against Germany for much of WW2.”
    Nope. Russians lost many in 1941, but not KIA, but many as POW.
    Note: at the beginning of Barbarossa Germany did outnumber Russian forces in manpower: in infantry numbers.
    As for the whole war after/ with Stalingrad, and mainly with Bagration Germans/ Axis have heavy losses as well.

    ” Germany lost because they were utterly overwhelmed from all sides.”
    This is one from the many reasons.
    There were numerious weaknesses on the system level.
    Includes finances, factory production (not only capacity, but as it build up, like handcraft vs. assemly lines), the failed resource stores of crucial materials (Goering`s fault prior war start), the failed – delayed war economy, the ban of frontline service of females till 1945 january, logistical problems, etc, etc…
    There were many reasons.

    About Napoleon:
    Russians done the same tactic with them, what they done with Sweden one century before that:
    “If you cannot beat them, do not fight them.”
    Harass, scorched earth, and actually Russians burn Moscow.
    Without proper shelter, supplies, reinforcements, etc… both grand armies lost many man, and combat potential.
    To defeat the remains of an army, when they skeleton thin from famine, frozen, full with illness/ disease, and have minimal ammo is far more easy.

    I see more comparison to Wiemar Germany than the Russian Revolution. I do not think we have reached the same stage as the Russian Revolution yet. There is a lot of talk, but no real fighting except for minor street fights. Indeed, U.S. Jews seem to be doing the same thing they did in Wiemar Germany. This point is near irrefutable.

    agree

    but I also agree that there are a lot of parallels with the Bolshevik revolution and Western civilization’s death spiral. Both were orchestrated by the same elements, and both used the dregs of society to wage a war on the productive class. As America’s cites burn, we were universally hectored by a controlled media and politicians that these people were noble revolutionaries, fighting an all-pervasive oppression by the privileged class.

    Just like the Bolsheviks told themselves they were fighting for a ‘workers paradise’, it was always about Jewish supremacism, using useful idiots to destroy the white, Russian middle class, just as it uses useful idiots (BLM, Antifa) today to destroy the white (in particular), American middle class.

    I think that Jewish interests currently in power will suffer the consequences for their promotion of “wokeness.” The “woke” will turn on them – if they have not already.

    I’d like to think that, but from what I’ve read between the lines over the years, is that the deal is unspoken, but iron clad.

    ‘We Jewish supremacists, will vouchsafe for you, (all POC, homos, La Raza, BLM, Muslims, feminists, et al), the destruction of white society. You’ll get to colonize them and take what they’ve built, but in the bargain, you’ll have to look the other way as we set ourselves up as the new rulers, and do what we want to certain populations.

    At times I think some Muslims bristle at this ‘deal’, and that’s when more American tax payer billions are shipped to Egypt and Jordan and elsewhere, and even some crumbs are given Islam, like Kosovo, in return for Palestine.

    Blacks will tolerate Jews on top, so long as they can feast on the carcass of whitey’s dying society.

    Homos too, because pedophilia is also a Jewish supremacist thang. And their interests and appetites tend to dovetail each other’s. Ditto feminism, who also hate the ‘Patriarchy’, (Western civilization).

    Anyways, I think the AOCs and Omars and BLM and CAIR and all the rest of them, will all be on board for the Zio-agenda, so long as first and foremost, it means the destruction of the white society. Even if they have to tolerate Hymie on top.

    In this case, Russia is not going to war for the ethnic Russians within Western Ukraine, but they will go to war to hold on the Sevastopol if Ukraine makes a move on it.

    whatever it takes..

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/group-of-seven-slams-russia-annexation-of-crimea-7-years-on-ukraine-russia-berlin-crimea-moscow-b1818951.html

    If the Ukraine moves on the Autonomous Republic which Zelensky has threatened to do with Decree No. 117/2021, then Russia will likely prevail in the court of world opinion.

    who prevailed in ‘the court of world opinion’, vis-a-vis 9/11?

    I’d say the vast majority of the people on the planet, and virtually every national leader of consequence- all know it was Israel and elements within the U.S. government that perpetrated that unprecedented and beyond-heinous crime. But yet, for all practical purposes, that ‘court of world opinion’, is moot, when it comes to whose country is slated for destruction by NATO, et al.

    It doesn’t matter what most Germans or Japanese or Russians or the leaders of Myanmar or India all know, what matters is what the British Prime Minister says. Or what CNN and Biden say, that matters, because depending on what lies they say, is going to determine where the bombs are going to drop.

    Whom among the court of world opinion was for the bombing and destruction of Libya? Who to this day, would try to justify what was done? But in the end, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is who leads the Deepstate apparatus, and for all practical purposes, that seems to be a Zio-thug behind the curtain, pulling the levers and turning the dial$.

    IOW, if Russia doesn’t take the bait, and fulfill its scripted role as ‘aggressor, then all they need to do is use their media to create the perception out of thin air. Like they did with Saddam or Gadhafi and so many others.

    They’ve been demonizing Putin for years now, setting the stage. So even if Ukraine were to attack outright, they’d have all their whorenaliststs in place to lie about, (like they did with MH17, and the Scripal idiocy, and so many others..)

    Just look at how they lied about the Holodomor, and Katyn, back in the day. Only today it even seems easier for them.

    The Central Europeans will not go for a proxy war provoked by U.S. aggression. Germany certainly will not. Poland may or may not. … … Neither country has anything to win with a major conflict in the Ukraine. Estonia, Latvia, and Belarus would be supportive because they want to use the U.S. to assert their independence, but their contribution would be negligible.

    I think Germans don’t have a whole lot of say, on what ‘their’ government does or does not do.

    It certainly would be massively unpopular, but then so was importing millions of “refugees” and other immigrant weapons to use against German society.

    The Poles are far more represented in their government, but then the Poles, like the Baltic states and others, feel menaced by an unrepentant Russia for generations of iron fisted Soviet slavery.

    If Russia continues to demand that Eastern Europe tolerate the Soviet monuments to the Red Army rapists that profane their sacred soil, and act as affronts to their national dignity, then Russia is asking for a fight.

    I do not think “woke” America will not be supportive of any type of protracted war. They may support a bombing mission (which I totally oppose), but not escalation.

    I think as long as it’s perceived as white American men dying in wars, killing white Russians or other ‘racists’, then ‘wokeness’ could not be more thrilled at the prospect.

    Their sons and daughters can be in the support divisions, while whitey is fighting and dying on the battlefield.

    If you think liberal/progressives are not in love with war, just look at how they swooned over Donald Trump when he bombed Syria.

    They hated his guts when he was just a white guy taking the reins from their Negro messiah, but when he bombed Syria, they universally hailed Trump as the second coming.

    And there again, it just goes to show the length and breath of Zion’s absolute domination of the progressive left/wokeness.

    The “woke” want cultural hegemony and wealth redistribution. A sustained conflict with Russia would derail their agenda.

    Yes, I agree, but that just may be part of the devil’s bargain they’ve made with Jewish supremacy, in order to get their coveted cultural hegemony and reparations.

    They all know, deep down, that without Jews on the top, their agenda would be dead in the water.

    So they’re willing to deal. You give us what whitey has, and we’ll tolerate your endless wars.

    Even Muslims overwhelmingly supported and voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, knowing that the war hag had slaughtered untold Muslims, and had every intention of doing more of it. So what, said Muslims, if it means more Muslims can come to the ZUS and partake in the colonization and feast on whitey’s carcass.

    Foreign adventurism would likely bring more civil conflict and the elites want stability. They do not want their markets disrupted.

    this is the reason for some hope. The people mean nothing, (IMHO). They’re sheep and will be told what they want or don’t want. But the Gentile elites are the ones who can derail the looming war, because as you point out, it could upset their apple cart.

    A real fight with Russia in the Ukraine would be hard to explain to the “woke” even by corporate America.

    I don’t think they give a fuck. I think AOC and Omar and BLM and Big Tech would all love a war between Ukraine and Russia with even American involvement, fought by mostly white boys. White racists killing white racists. Such a deal! They’d even sacrifice some of their reparations for that.

    Even if it did, that would mean civil conflict making it nearly impossible to pursue a foreign conflict.

    look at Bolshevik Russia. Massive civil conflict, even slaughter, all entangled with foreign conflict.

    If they could get the middle and working class to fight domestically over identity politics, as they outsourced their hatred and strife and death and carnage to foreign wars, then I really can’t imagine a scenario that would make them happier.

    The U.S. has no real business in the Ukraine except for oil.

    Not even for oil.

    The woke may be historically ignorant but they will not go for any protracted war in a far away land for oil even if the establishment tries to dress it up as a perpetual war for democracy and peace.

    I wish you were right. But I don’t think ‘wokeness’ gives a fuck about war. And would even sacrifice a few trillion if it meant a war between Russia and Ukraine, where according to wokeness there are only white supremacists and racists after all. Let them slaughter each other. Hell, send the weapons!

    Please just consider.. Wokeness is now firmly entrenched in power in the ZUSA. It has the White House, Senate and House, all under it’s iron control. And how much effort is being made to bring the troops home, eh?

    Any?

    Or, conversely, are we seeing a foreign policy that is even more belligerent and bellicose than Trump’s?

    The Germans lost in WWII because they lacked sufficient oil resources, locomotives, railway cars, railway lines and heavy trucks. The Third Reich began WWII with a military logistics network wholly unsuited for the type mobile land warfare they were conducting. The Wehrmacht was still using 19th Century horse-drawn artillery carriages on June 22, 1941 when they invaded the USSR. Pre-Operation Barbarossa assessment documents show that both Hitler and the OKW were aware of the petroleum, general supply and overland transportation shortcomings. ( These problems were apparent during the race across France in 1940. ) The report accurately predicted that Germany’s capacity for the maintaining operational tempo for ‘Blitzkrieg’ was limited to about 500 miles. What exacerbated this problem was that German officers were given freedom of movement after breaking through enemy lines and emerging in open frontiers racing further away from their thin network of already undersupplied forward logistical bases.

    If you wonder why the US developed and currently maintains the largest military transport fleet and logistics base network in the history of the world, the strategic catastrophe that befell the Wehrmacht is why.

    “The Russians lost 5 men for every one killed against Germany for much of WW2.”
    Nope. Russians lost many in 1941, but not KIA, but many as POW.

    It is true that The Russians lost 5 men for every one killed against Germany for much of WW2

    There are many conflicting reports, and depending on who’s archives you are consulting, you may get a different figure. That being said, total German Eastern front KIA or missing was estimated at 225,000 for 1941. Soviet KIA during this time is estimated at nearly 600,000, with some 2,800,000 captured OR MISSING. Many of the missing were in fact KIA, and many of the captured did not survive the war.

    The Battle of Minsk, which was part of Operation Barbarossa, had some 15,000 Germans killed; Some 80,000 Russians killed and an additional 350,000 captured. There are numerous other battles, such as the Barvenkovo–Lozovaya offensive, were the Soviets “won” while literally losing 10 men killed to every one German. During the Summer of 1942, The Germans lost around 200,000 men in their “Fall Blau” offensive; the Soviets lost well over 1 million. In 1943 in the third battle of Kharkov, the Germans lost some 4,500 KIA vs 45,000 Soviets. Even in the great “victory” of Stalingrad, the Russians lost some 2 to one casualties, and some 3 to one against German units. (Stalingrad included a heavy coalition presence, who were far less effective than German units)

    It is hard to impossible to come up with accurate casualty statistics for the entire war; there are significant disparities in the official records from different nations, and we are seeing increased revision by (((people))) with agendas. For example, the 6 million holohoax figure is almost entirely fabricated. The true total casualty ratio for the actual combatants was something like two Soviets for reach German. In 1944 and 1945, when Germany was overwhelmed from all sides, was a very different story than 1941 and 1942, when the Russians were caught off guard, and were facing the cream of the Wehrmacht in terms of officers, men, and resources.

    ” Germany lost because they were utterly overwhelmed from all sides.”

    You can certainly go into detail and find numerous reasons or factors. The world is a highly complex place. Nevertheless, the bottom line is that the Soviets, and allies in general, possessed a MANY TIMES OVER advantage in numbers and material. Despite this fact, they lost FAR higher numbers of combatants than the Germans. Together, these facts are nothing short of amazing, and paint the victorious allies, and defeated Germans, in a different light.

    They killed the king and his family, and proceeded to liquidate millions of Russians and Ukrainians. However, it is also true that tens of millions, if not the majority of Russians eventually ended up going along with them.

    as well as millions of Germans and Poles and others.

    I look at what I see today, and there are millions of white Americans who are woke (commie-type losers and fools). Like the Antifa goons that Kyle Rittenhouse dispatched, or modified.

    Wokeness in America (the political expression of progressive liberalism), is IMO the modern day equivalent of Bolshevism. Funded and lead by Jewish supremacists at the top, and with a hodgepodge collection of losers and dregs from every niche of societies idiots and cretins. Especially the university-“educated” idiots and cretins. They’re the worst, of course. And millions of them are white. Perhaps most. Look at all those demonstrators in Portland .

    they’re white, and dumb as posts. Indoctrinated and militantly anti-white. Just like Russian or German or French or any other indoctrinated, commie piece of shit you want to consider.

    How can I blame ethnic Russian Bolsheviks when there are legions of white American wankers and losers demanding their own (and their children’s) national dispossession?

    And then compare these worse-than-pathetic dregs to your average Russian today. I’d take the Russian ten times over.

    So you see how having your entire national and cultural institutions all ((co-opted)) and turned into weapons against the population, can pollute and poison a society to the point of suicidal madness, and it’s easier to understand why so many Russians of the Soviet era were so mentally deranged and homicidally deluded.

    These are some of the violent, crazed shitheads of Antifa

    the modern version of the Russian Red Army soldier, ready to beat any white man who doesn’t bow down to their abased, self-loathing ((narrative)).

    So just as there were millions of Russian and others carrying the Soviet torch of Jewish supremacism and murderous rage for their fellow Russians and Germans and others, so too we have the exact same phenomenon right now, staring us all in the face.

    What we all need to do; Russian, German, American, Brit, Canadian, French, and all the rest of the people of the West, is repudiate the Soviet madness of yesterday, and today’s version as well. Especially today’s version, because it’s today, right now that ((they)) want to use all this manufactured strife to get their wars going in this century, just like they did in the last one.

    You don’t know anything about Armenians and Russians.
    Russians didn’t sit on their asses.

    If you have a specific period in mind, bring t up: I’ll do my best to clarify what actually happened.

    If you are referring to the Armenian Genocide at the hands of Uyguroglu nomad Muslim Turks 1915-1923, the Russians didn’t sit on their asses. Tsarist Russia was crushing Ottoman Turk armies in the region* (Caucasus). When Bolsheviks came to power, they ordered the withdrawal of the Russian armies from Caucasus. And the rest is tragic history as they say.

    Some years prior, Russia has crushed the Turks in Crimea, until France and England came in and saved the Turks from massive defeat. If not for the interference of France and England, Ottoman Turkey would be defeated and dismembered. There would likely be no Armenian Genocide.
    “Thank you” France and England.

    Bolsheviks even saved Mustafa Kemal (aka Ataturk) from being a footnote in history.
    Kemal was finished, until Lenin sent him trainloads of new Mosin rifles, tons of ammunition, cannon, gold.

    If you are referring to the Turkbaijani+Turk invasion of Artsakh in Sep 27, 2020 and the massive Armenian defeat, I covered that in another thread. Let me know if you want to read the comment.
    But rest assured: Moscow did not abandon Armenia; Armenia’s Sorososized leaders abandoned their own people and their own soldiers.

    btw: this most recent attack against Armenians by Turks was hatched by MI6, on behalf of British Petroleum.

    If someone invades your land, you use every advantage you can find to wipe out the invaders.
    How many of youse arguing for so called “equal terms” would make the same argument if someone broke into your house at midnight intent on killing you?

    It is true that The Russians lost 5 men for every one killed against Germany for much of WW2

    Sorry to point this out, but this is a blatant lie. The Government of Russia, following a study conducted by the Russian Academy of Science in 1993, puts the deaths at 26.6 million (as opposed to previously claimed 20 million), including about 8.66 million military deaths.

    A recent study by Rudiger Overmans, a German historian, estimated that German military casualties were 5.3 million.

  362. Reaper says:
    @stevennonemaker88

    Sources are claims sometimes radically differently.
    “depending on who’s archives you are consulting”
    You did used official German sources for German losses, and official USSR for theirs in 1941.

    In short:
    Yes in 1941- 1942 aug. USSR had heavy losses compared with German losses.
    What fails: Germany had more frontline troops as infantry:
    – in 41 untill the end of November
    – in 42 untill September
    In the mentioned Białystok–Minsk: Germany alone had some 40,000-80,000 more troops.
    They were capable to concentrate troops in special frontline positions, while USSR doctrine was in that time to use mass numbers in a wide front.
    Also worth to mention: many USSR troops was not in fact soldiers in 1941-42, but very fresh reserve conscripts DURING mobilization. Nor trained, nor equiped in worth.

    “and many of the captured did not survive the war”
    Yeah Germany have just much problem to feed their own, and was not capable to deal with the large number of POW.
    So simply solve the problem: “USSR did not sign the Geneva Convention so USSR POW`s did not get the rights granted by that”. Like feed them properly…
    So most died from starvation, lack of medical treatment, and shelter. Many became forced labor with not much better nutrition/ etc…
    In whole ww2 no participant was ready to properly take care of POW. Simply there was too many. Even when they tried to do it for some extent.

    “The true total casualty ratio for the actual combatants was something like two Soviets for reach German”
    I find more realistic when the ratio is put between 1.4-1,7 from 1941-1945 FOR army losses.
    Off course never can be accurate.
    Can count as well: Luftwaffe AA volunters, Volksturm, Hitlerjugend, Napola/ AH Schools, Auxilary forces (Especially from Ukraine, Baltic states what USSR count as own civilian losses), or from USSR side armed factory workers/ other city resistance (Stalingrad, Leningrad), partisans, Cossacks, “Suka”/ penal troops.
    No these are traditionally not counted as military losses/ included in (most) ratios, more often as civilian.

    ” In 1944 and 1945, when Germany was overwhelmed from all sides, was a very different story”
    That is part of the war.
    The story was reverse: Germany in defensive position USSR attacks, and German troops get sorrunded/ captured/ eliminated (includes fortress cities).

    In materials/ production yes allies had extensive advantage.

    In numbers: more tricky.
    As seen in the Eastern Front often Germany had advantage in manpower in battles/ frontline before 1942 fall, except in the counteroffensive at Moscow.

    Western allies do not have much role in manpower from 1941-1943, as they fight only in North Africa/ some Mediterranean areas – so quite limited role in manpower. When they can be count as full in manpower starts after Normandy.

    As for your goal:
    Yes, German troops had an overall better performance up untill 1944.
    By then they had too heavy losses/ run out from well trained, experienced soldiers/ officers and elite troops. Also from proper equipments (oil, ammo, etc..). Even most of the Waffen SS lost the elite status, and virtually anybody can be one from 44, many as reassignment/ conscript and not as volunteer.
    In the same time the Red Army became a better quality with experienced troops (guards/ others), officers, strategy.

    Before Barbarossa many German leaders believed: just kick the door and it will collapse. Eg.: USSR will fall in a matter of weeks/ months.
    Because Germany/ army so superior.
    History proved otherwise.

    Even Putin acknowledged: “Fifty years ago, the streets of Leningrad taught me one thing: If a fight’s inevitable, you must strike first,”. Now, I think that preemptive strikes are rarely justified, and are often just an excuse for aggression. However, it is easy to understand what the Germans (and Japs) were thinking in their decisions. After WW1, when the allies kept a starvation blockage in place until summer of 1919. After they heard of the horrors brought on by the Bolsheviks in Russia, Ukraine, and Poland. After the UK and France declared war on Germany, allegedly for the invasion of Poland, but did not declare war on the USSR who also invaded Poland. Germany looked at the USSR as evil (and it was) and conflict appeared inevitable.

    War is brutal, and I don’t doubt there were innocent civilians killed by the Germans. However, the magnitude of German crimes has been magnified by the (((usual suspects))) while the tremendous crimes of the allies have been minimized. Ron Unz has a couple of excellent pieces on the subject.
    Claiming that the Germans were the uniquely guilty party in both world wars is a Lie. In most cases, the Allies were FAR worse than the Germans; history is written by the (((victors))). Your comment rests on disinformation and false premises. Both World wars were conflicts against overwhelming odds, but the Germans fought with unmatched skill and valor, against an enemy who was (and is) bent on World domination.

    The Manpower myth is a persistent one, essentially it goes like this, the Soviets only won WW2 because of superior manpower, which they had available because their population was so much larger than the Germans. the idea that the Soviets or allies only won because they outnumbered the axis. However, in reality when ever you attack you want to out number the enemy. And this is true for the the Axis as well. The Axis also won when they were able to gain a local superiority of numbers, and rarely when they could not.Soviets actually rarely ever had the supposed multiple to one force ratio. Additionally, the Soviets won battles, where the numbers were even between Soviet and Axis troops. The western allies nearly always operated with numbers which were multiple times more advantageous than the Soviets ever did.

    I already answered this in depth, so I’ll copy and paste for you. You have NO REBUTTAL TO FACTS:

    ” It is true that The Russians lost 5 men for every one killed against Germany for much of WW2

    There are many conflicting reports, and depending on who’s archives you are consulting, you may get a different figure. That being said, total German Eastern front KIA or missing was estimated at 225,000 for 1941. Soviet KIA during this time is estimated at nearly 600,000, with some 2,800,000 captured OR MISSING. Many of the missing were in fact KIA, and many of the captured did not survive the war.

    The Battle of Minsk, which was part of Operation Barbarossa, had some 15,000 Germans killed; Some 80,000 Russians killed and an additional 350,000 captured. There are numerous other battles, such as the Barvenkovo–Lozovaya offensive, were the Soviets “won” while literally losing 10 men killed to every one German. During the Summer of 1942, The Germans lost around 200,000 men in their “Fall Blau” offensive; the Soviets lost well over 1 million. In 1943 in the third battle of Kharkov, the Germans lost some 4,500 KIA vs 45,000 Soviets. Even in the great “victory” of Stalingrad, the Russians lost some 2 to one casualties, and some 3 to one against German units. (Stalingrad included a heavy coalition presence, who were far less effective than German units)

    It is hard to impossible to come up with accurate casualty statistics for the entire war; there are significant disparities in the official records from different nations, and we are seeing increased revision by (((people))) with agendas. For example, the 6 million holohoax figure is almost entirely fabricated. The true total casualty ratio for the actual combatants was something like two Soviets for reach German. In 1944 and 1945, when Germany was overwhelmed from all sides, was a very different story than 1941 and 1942, when the Russians were caught off guard, and were facing the cream of the Wehrmacht in terms of officers, men, and resources.”

    Can you actually read anything more detailed than a meme?

    Russia has come a long way since 1990 .It is hampered by the low population density and low absolute population. Can it take people from other white nations? No country is in a position to supply . Can it attract people from Vietnam , NK , S Africa or can it offer immigration to ME Christian ? Possible . But it will still take 1 generations for linguistic and cultural integration .
    Russia politically hedges it’s bet . It didn’t support China vs India over changes in status of Kashmir in 2020 . It’s support for Iran or Pakistan or Syria or Ethiopia or Venezuela is still evolving and pragmatic but also has a lot of inherent contradiction or inconsistencies.
    Just like Turkey or Pakistan and India has .
    These inconsistencies run against commonly expected behaviors but possibly the best these countries can do .

    NATO- USA trying to get Turkey entirely back in the tent , Pakistan will be targeted for same by USA . In that development , Afghanistan will have no choice but enter US ‘s camp . These developments can seriously create problem for China and Russia . Pakistan Turkey Afghanistan and NATO- USA might decide to focus exclusively on Russia and postpone any anti Chinese activities .
    Russia can preempt by cooperating in Syria and Libya and asking Turkey to cooperate in Ukraine and Afghanistan- give and take . In Syria , Turkey will be told to honor Syrian integrity and expect help with Kurd.
    Qatar is another country where Russia and Turkey can work to wean it from Arab league and align more with Russia – Turkey – Iran .

    Russia can force Armenia and Azerbaijan to make painful compromises with land swap and religious freedom .

    Russia’s fate today is immensely tied to evolving non -European context. It has to influence it to keep its European borders safe and secure .

    For all intents and purposes, Afghanistan is already leaving the US camp. Anti-US Taliban won, and the Empire and its vassals are leaving with their collective tail between their legs.

    Russia’s fate today is immensely tied to evolving non -European context. It has to influence it to keep its European borders safe and secure .

    Putin is acutely aware of Russian demographic and other weaknesses, as well as of its strengths. He resists desperate imperial push to make it a satellite of the Empire. However, the last thing he wants is for Russia to become a satellite of China. He is doing everything humanly possible to keep the other poles of power in the world viable. The only reason Russia did not send insane EU to Hell is that Putin still hopes that Europe can become one of those poles. We’ll see whether he is right in a decade or two.

    “The Kremlin, of course, has the request to talk to Vladimir Putin. We haven’t received a response so far and very much hope that it’s not a refusal of dialogue,” Iuliia Mendel, a spokeswoman for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, told The Associated Press. The request was lodged on March 26, when four Ukrainian troops were killed in a mortar attack in the east, she added.

    But Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday he hasn’t seen any requests from Zelenskyy “in recent days.”

    How Taliban behaves depends on how Pakistan behaves . Plenty of dishonest thieves are there like Zia ul Haque , Zardari , Nawaz Sharifg , Mushroff who will sale the country to relocate to London or NY with American money and join the camp again despite 20 years drone and accusation and designation of rogue failed terror state . There are also ideologues who will trade pragmatism for utopian religious visions among Taliban . Qatar and Saudi will not dissuade but rather persuade Taliban .

    Keeping these possibilities , Russia needs to get its act together and unequivocally support Pakistan as long as Pakistan fights the tendencies and possibilities of being used by USA .

    Turkey doesn’t need goading from anyone to invade, to steal, to murder, to commit genocide. Turks are Turks: or didn’t you know that.

    Good: the sooner the artificial creation of Pakistan gets thrown back to Stone Age and disintegrates, the better. Pakistan was instrumental and at the forefront of supporting Afghan Muj in defeating USSR in Afghanistan. Let Pakistan stew in the mess they themselves created. It’s a menace.

    Americans and Israelis destroyed Syria .The plan was afoot long before 911.

    (In 2000 Pipes coauthored a jingoistic report with Abdelnour that advocated the use of U.S. military action to force Syria out of Lebanon and to disarm Syria of its alleged weapons of mass destruction. Virtually all 31 signatories of this MEF report (which was used to persuade Congress to introduce and pass the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act in 2003) are USCFL members, and several became high officials or advisers in the Bush foreign policy team, including Abrams, Perle, Feith, Dobrianksy, and Wurmser.The 2000 report by Pipes and Abdelnour concluded that that “Syrian rule in Lebanon stands in direct opposition to American ideals.” It strongly criticized Washington’s policy of engaging Syria rather than confronting it. Immediately before the Iraq invasion, Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security traveled to Israel and promised Prime Minister Ariel Sharon that “it will be necessary to deal with threats from Syria, Iran, and North Korea afterwards.” In April 2003 Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz warned: “There’s got to be a change in Syria.” The USCFL describes itself as the “cyber-center for Pro-Lebanon Activism.” USCFL was one of the leading proponents of the “Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003,” which calls for a series of sanctions against Syria and which President Bush signed on December 12, 3003.  The neoconservatives, strongly backed the right-wing Zionist lobby through such groups as the Orthodox Union and the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, have followed a similar strategy to advance their agenda for political transformation in Syria and Lebanon. In much the same way that they moved forward their agenda for regime change in Iraq step by step, the neocon advocates for a radical transformation in the Middle East have in the case of Syria and Lebanon also formed a “front group”–USCFL–and supported bipartisan legislation that establish the political base for sanctions against Iraq–and eventual U.S. military action. USCFL’s page of “selected links” recommends just three lobbying organizations: Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and Christian Coalition of America.
    USCFL, a self-described “non-profit, non-sectarian think tank,” states that it aims to rid the Middle East of “dictatorships, radical ideologies, existential conflicts, border disagreements, political violence, and weapons of mass destruction” and to do so while abiding with the tenets of the Charter of the United Nations. USCFL’s core supporters, which it calls its “Golden Circle,” include several members of the Bush administration: Elliott Abrams, Richard Perle, Paula Dobriansky, Michael Rubin, and David Wurmser. Other prominent neocons in the Golden Circle include Daniel Pipes (Middle East Forum and U.S. Institute for Peace), Frank Gaffney (Center for Security Policy), Jeane Kirkpatrick (AEI) , Michael Ledeen (AEI), David Steinmann (Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs), and Eleana Benador (Middle East Forum). Also included in this circle of those who have donated $1,000 or more to USCFL is Rep. Eliot Engel (R-NY), the congressional representative who was the main sponsor of the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003.

    The Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003 received overwhelming support in both the House and the Senate. This public law aims: “To halt Syrian support for terrorism, end its occupation of Lebanon, stop its development of weapons of mass destruction, cease its illegal importation of Iraqi oil and illegal shipments of weapons and other military items to Iraq, and by so doing hold Syria accountable for the serious international security problems it has caused in the Middle East, and for other purposes.” It is designed to punish Damascus for its alleged links to terrorist groups and its alleged efforts to develop weapons of mass destruction. It bans all transfers of “dual-use” technology to Syria. In addition, the act recommends an arsenal of sanctions against Syria, including: reducing diplomatic contacts with Syria, banning U.S. exports (except food and medicine) to Syria, prohibiting U.S. busi! nesses from investing or oper! ating in Syria, restricting the travel of Syrian diplomats in the United States, banning Syrian aircraft from operating in the United States, and freezing Syrian assets in the United States. Although the bill obligates the executive branch to enact at least two of the recommended sanctions, it does permit the president to waive the sanctions if it is determined that they would harm U.S. national security.
    USCFL commended Rep. Engel for his leadership in moving the bill through the House, and also expressed its special appreciation for the strong support provided by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and to Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Rick Santorum (R-PA) “for pioneering it in the Senate.”

    Well ok aware – yet have no real intent to make effective measures.
    Nor does anyone else, included Lukasenko, who did dreamt from the 15 million population in Belarus.

    Western countries are even worse hypocrites.

    But if you can point to any person with real authority/ power who have the will to make effective measures to activelly increase population growth by increased birthrate/ TFR I would be glad.

    {” yet have no real intent to make effective measures.”}

    Not true.

    Don’t know about Belarus, but Moscow has done its best – as a State – with financial incentives and such to encourage large families in RF. But if Russian women don’t want to have large families – except the deeply Christian women – then there isn’t much the State can do, can it?

    It is a common problem of advanced societies worldwide*: societies that are well to do, and where women have been afforded all the opportunities for personal advancement as professionals, the family is 1 or 2 children. If the mother pursues higher Ed, then she has no time to bear and rear many children. Higher IQ, higher Ed mothers tend not to have many children.

    Financial incentives is a joke.
    Fake science made up by leftists – presented as truth/ academic science.
    Liberal-leftist-femninist propaganda, when oh people are poor, there are not enougt safety, etc, etc… How rich are people in Somalia, how safe they are, how calculable their future?
    Or at any of the countries with top TFR (top 50 for example)?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_and_dependencies_by_total_fertility_rate#Country_ranking_by_Intergovernmental_organizations

    Financial incentives simply have some effect on the “when”, which presented as “increase”. While only the already planned/ in time ready families have the about same number of kids. Especially if the financial incentives is connected to the birth itself: large one time income, baby bonds, whatever.
    Also have an effect on “benefit surfers”, like gypsies/ similars.
    Does not have notable effect on the majority, or the long term birthrates.

    “then there isn’t much the State can do, can it?”

    Yes there are very much. All the ones which can be described as:
    “real intent to make effective measures”

    Radical and effective ones, like:
    – Nobody can get in to university, if not married/ have children.
    – For certain specialisations, like teacher, nursery staff, maternity clinic/ gynecologist, etc: nobody can work/ get into education if don`t have at least 3 children.
    – Cannot get driver license who…
    – If a pensioners never had children gets no pension at all/ any other benefits.
    – If over 45, and still have no healthy children (includes adoption) must pay extra taxes.
    There is a very large list which can be done by the state.

    “real intent to make EFFECTIVE measures”

    Includes to be ready for widespread protest/ riots and deal with those in maximal effect.
    This is not for popularity, not for agreement, but things which must done: to effectively change the progress and instead of the present decreased birthrates make a greatly increased birthrate in a long run, at least untill it reaches some 2,3 – 2,5 TFR.

    Anything what any government/ state done in the past 50 years to increase birthrates (as far I know) are just propaganda, smoke without fire, and hypocrisy.

    While the liberal-leftist-feminist-woke-lgbt was VERY effective to decrease it by thousands of measures/ state regulations-legalizations/ financial incentives.
    In many cases simply enought to do the exact opposite: what those worms campaigned for/ campaigned against. And bring back what they canceled/ banned.
