First, a clarification. When I speak of “Biden” I don’t mean the fungus (to use Tom Luongo’s apt expression) which was recently planted in the White House, I am referring to the “collective Biden” which I defined here https://thesaker.is/terminology/ . With this caveat, now let’s see why Russia might want to change gears in 2021.

First, let’s begin by the basics:

Russians often say that US politicians change, but US policies don’t. There is much truth to that, we saw that very clearly with Obama and Trump: both promised sweeping changes and both pretty much continued the policies of their predecessors, at least on the foreign policy front. In a way, you could argue that this is normal and even desirable. A shill for the regime would say something along the lines that “well, that is normal, US national security priorities don’t change with each administration, so all this proves is that no matter what any candidate promises during his campaign, once in office he/she becomes aware of the hard realities of this words and then act on it just like their predecessors did“. This argument is deeply flawed, however, because it completely ignores the will of the US people (who, let’s not forget that, voted for change every time they got a chance to, be it with Obama or with Trump) and it assumes that only those “in the know” realize and know what they have to do. This kind of “logic” is typical for the elitism of the US ruling classes.

It also ignores the fact that US Presidents are really puppets, figureheads, even if during their campaign they pretend otherwise. As for the elections, every four years in the US, they are nothing but a grand brainwashing show whose sole purpose is to give the illusion of people power. They could have presidential elections every 2 years, or even every year, none of that would change the fact that the US is a plutocratic dictatorship with much less people power than any other state in the collective West.

In fact, the argument above is just a tiny fig leaf trying to conceal the undeniable fact that the US are not ruled by a person, but are ruled by a class, in the Marxist sense of this world. Personally, I call this ruling class the “US Nomenklatura“. And while both Obama and Trump pretended to want real change, they both lost that chance (assuming they ever wanted this is the first place, which I doubt) when they did not do what Putin did when he came to office: crush the Russian oligarchs as a class (some fled abroad, some died, some lost it all, and some agreed to play by Putin’s new rules). Obama, being the vapid and spineless car salesman that he, is probably never even contemplated any real move against the US Nomenklatura. As for Trump, being the pompous narcissist that he is, he might have even entertained some thoughts of showing “who is boss”, but that lasted only 1 month, until the US Nomenklatura forced Trump to fire Flynn (after that, it was all freefall…).

Anyway, the point is that we should not expect immense, sweeping changes from any administration. Since the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior, we should assume that mostly we will get “more of the same, maybe even worse”. What am I talking about here? Here is a (partial) list of these “more of the sames”:

  1. Further vilification of Russia, Russians and everything Russian by the entire western media (which is even less diverse and more uniformly lying than anything Goebbels or Suslov could ever had dreamed up!). You can think of it as “full spectrum russophobia”.
  2. Even more “sanctions” against all Russian interests (economic, political, etc.) worldwide. The US sees this as a pure zero-sum game, any loss by Russia, no matter how marginal and puny is a victory for the AngloZionist Empire.
  3. A return to Obama-era style military missile and air strikes. Probably not on Russian targets (yes, Hillary advocated that, but now this would be much more dangerous than 5 years ago), but definitely on Russian allies like Syria (including attacks on Iranian and Venezuelan vessels on the high seas).
  4. A return to Obama-era petty harassment of Russian diplomats and citizens. The goal here is not to achieve anything meaningful, but rather it is to show that “Russia is weak and cannot prevent us from treating her like a 3rd rate power”. There is nothing the US could do which would really hurt Russia, so Uncle Shmuel will turn his rage on those few diplomats and even civilians it can kidnap, jail, expel, sanction, extort, threaten etc.
  5. Even more sabre-rattling all along the Russian borders. I fully expect that US forces will be deployed in the Baltic statelets on a permanent basis (not on a rotation basis). USAF aircraft and USN ships will continue to harass Russian defenses under the pretext of “innocent passage”, “freedom of navigation” and the like.
  6. Since the Biden Admin is a “who’s who” of Jewish and Ukrainian extremists (some combo!), and since Biden is personally implicated in the Ukraine (along with Hunter), we can also expect a rapid degradation of the political situation in the Ukraine and even more provocations than under Trump. As they say, these folks will “fight Russia down to the last Ukrainian”.

None of that will have any direct impact on Russia (for a detailed discussion, see here). However, this does not mean that Russia should continue to pretend like this is “business as usual” and take blow after blow after blow. Why? For a number of reasons:

  1. There is plenty of evidence that the Russian people are getting fed-up with what they see is a rather weak, if not lame, attitude of Russian officials, especially against the constant flow of petty harassment measures against Russian interests. Folks in the West are never told this (after all, informing is not the mission of the corporate media), but the “patriotic” opposition to the Kremlin is much more dangerous than the hopelessly discredited pro-western “liberal” one (more about that below). The calls for a much more energetic “push-back” are now regularly heard, including from rather mainstream politicians.
  2. There is also plenty of evidence that the “Biden gang” will want not only to fully resume Obama-era policies towards the Ukraine (trigger more violent incidents & support for the Ukie Nazis) but that these policies will now also be extended towards Belarus. The fact that these policies are unlikely to succeed does not mean that Russia’s best response to them is to maintain a “wait and see” position. It is pretty self-evident that any form of restraint by Russia is immediately explained away as “weakness” by the western propaganda machine. Any more such “restraint” will only make things more dangerous and more difficult for Russia and Putin personally. In other words, at this point in time, “restraint” only invites more aggression.
  3. Furthermore, 2021 is an election (Parliament) year in Russia. Now, irrespective of anything Russia does, no matter how transparent or un-falsifiable Russian elections are, the West will use that opportunity to try to get violent riots in the streets of Russia before the elections and, after the election, the West will declare that the Russian elections were “undemocratic” and go on about “supporting the just democratic aspirations of the Russian people” (especially Russian homosexuals, of course!) and the like.
  4. Finally, it is pretty clear that the Biden Cabinet brings together the crème de la crème of Zionist russophobes from the US deep state. These people are characterized by the following and very dangerous characteristics: narcissistic and messianic racist self-love, a “God ordained” racist hatred for all of mankind, a personal/family history of hatred for Russia, deep involvement in many Ukie corruption schemes, an almost total failure to understand that consequences and nature of war combined with a delusional belief in invulnerability and impunity (while the former is false, the latter has been true, at least so far), etc. This is a very dangerous combination, to say the least!

The truth is that pseudo-liberals are amongst the most dangerous creatures out there. Yes, their current “geopolitical toolkit” (the US and the AngloZionist Empire) is weak, but that does not mean that Russia (or the rest of the world) can simply ignore these dangerous psychopaths.

The good (or even excellent!) news is that Trump gave Russia four more years to prepare for what is coming next, and that the Russia+China tandem is in much better shape today than it was 4 years ago. For example, the Russian internal security situation is now the best ever, as witnessed to by the fact that the Russian federal “wanted list” does not include a single Chechen national; the self-styled “last Emir of the Caucasus”, Aslan Byutukayev, was killed on January 20th, which made it possible for Ramzan Kadyrov to “declare a total victory over terrorism” in Russia). In plain English this means that every single Chechen who has ever committed an act of terrorism in Russia has been identified and is now either dead (most of them) or jailed (only a few). Despite these achievements, I am not sure sure about the “total victory over terrorism” because there are still violent groups in several regions Russia. Besides, if the “Axis of Kindness” (US/Israel/KSA, sometimes joined by the country many Russians think of as “Puny Britain”) special services decide to reignite an insurgency in Russia, they might have at least some success, especially initially. The FSB/FSO better not let their guard down, especially in Dagestan, the Far East, Crimea and the Moscow region!

In purely military terms, Russia is completely “out of reach” for the United States armed forces, even with the EU/NATO thrown in. I have written a lot about that, and I won’t repeat any of this here. Suffice to say that Russia now has the best armed forces she has had in decades while the US has an immense, truly grotesquely bloated, military, but not one that can get anything done other than killing (and, at that, mostly civilians). Even if we look just at nuclear strategic forces of Russia they are at least a decade, if not more, ahead of the West. This is the first time since WWII that Russia is that powerful, and now she can reap the many advantages of being militarily secure.

All this being said, I have personally always defended what I called the Kremlin’s “restraint” for the simple reason that when I look at the aggregate power (not just military!) of Russia and the AngloZionist Empire I still see the latter as much stronger. However, I have do admit that the trend of this relationship is a positive one, that is to say that over the past decade or so Russia has become much, much, stronger while the US and the Empire have become much, much, weaker. Under Biden, this trend will only accelerate.

The time has now come for Russia to adapt her own policies to this new reality.

And the very first thing the Kremlin ought to change is its language, its rhetoric. Yes, “restraint” is good, especially when escalation into a full-scale war is amongst the possible outcomes of any crisis, but “restraint” cannot be a goal in itself. For example, while the US+NATO does, objectively, represent a major anti-Russian threat (if only because they are weak and can only count their on nukes to protect them!). Likewise, the ugly “Banderastan” which the Ukronazis turned the good old Ukraine into is not a threat to Russia whatsoever. So why not seriously turn down a few economic screws to make the Ukronazis feel that their never ending stream of insults and (empty) threats can have consequences?

Next, the Kremlin needs to mix strong words with strong actions!

Just this Sunday, January, the 24th, the US Embassy in Moscow was involved in openly coordinating the (small, but violent and illegal!) riots in Moscow, just the same way the NEXTA Telegram channel has done in Belarus. So what did the Kremlin do in response? The Russian Foreign Ministry did order US diplomats to the MID building and… … gave them a note of firm protest.

And that’s it?!

I don’t think anybody in the US Embassy in Moscow gives a damn about Russian protests. If anything, US “diplomats” probably get a good laugh each time they get such protests. And everybody knows that, including the Russian diplomats. So why do they hold to such a lame “communications line”?

The Russian Navy recently gave a very good example of how a good word can have much more effect when backed with some good action: remember when (of all names!) the USS John McCain recently breached the Russian maritime border? The Russian Navy did tell the McCain to withdraw, but it added that the Russian large antisubmarine ship (a “destroyer” in western terminology) Admiral Vinogradov would “ram” the McCain if his warnings were not heeded. Needless to say, the McCain got out really fast (the USN already has experienced this kind of situation in the past, see here). The problem with ramming, at least for the USN, is that you can hardly reply by opening up with your weapons, which would be truly suicidal inside Russian waters and near the (heavily fortified) Russian coastline. As for the Russians, they are “crazy” enough to do that, even when their ship is smaller (ask any US sailor who served in the US submarine force, they know!). The simple truth is that the Russian sailors “mean business” (the one of defending their motherland) whereas the US sailors, well, how shall I put it? They do very much want to “show the flag” and “defend principles”, but not if they might get seriously hurt. That’s just a fact. From the Russian point of view, joining the military means accepting that pain and death come with the territory. 1000 years of warfare have truly imprinted that on the Russian collective psyche.

By the way, a lot of US Americans love to repeat these famous words by General Patton: “No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country“. This is a neat aphorism, and it very much caters to a typically US view of warfare. It is also almost perfectly wrong, as any Russian, Iranian or Hezbollah fighter could tell you – that is not how you win wars. In fact, this is how you lose them. And this is why putative “dumb bastards” beat the crap out of US forces over and over again…

At the very least, it is high time to reduce the number of US officials in Russia: I am talking about diplomats, of course, but also the entire menagerie of “volunteers”, “NGOs” and, most definitely, US “journalists” accredited in Russia. Reducing their numbers will also make it easier for the FSB/FSO to keep an eye on the rest of them.

Next, I would also show a large number of EU “guests” to the door: after all, why keep them in this nightmarish Putin’s Mordor? Let’s send them back to the “freedom” they, apparently, care for so much (at least when in Russia; when in Paris, Berlin or Rotterdam – not so much).

Frankly, they EU rulers have gone completely insane. Now the EU is seriously considering cancelling the almost completed North Stream 2 over the Navalnyi nonsense! Sacrificing a multi-billion dollar project crucial to the EU economy over the fate of one particularly uninspiring and fake pseudo-dissident whose support in Russia is less than one percent (as shown by the miniscule crowds which violently rioted on is behalf). What the EU leaders fail to appreciate is that Russia needs NS2 much less than the EU does, as Russia’s main gas plans are fully focused on China. There is a good Russian expression about the kind of threats the EU makes: to “try to scare a hedgehog with a naked bottom!”. The EU really needs to be placed on a suicide watch, imho.

Frankly, this entire western “fauna” has become accustomed to living in Russia while making a living hating on Russia. They mostly got away with it in the 80s, they totally got away with it in the 90s, and for the past twenty years the Kremlin has done precious little to change this. I think that the “message” (westerners love “messages”) from the Kremlin should be simple: living and working in Russia is not a right, it is a privilege. If you can’t behave, then you have overstayed your welcome. In the current context, the West has much more to lose from this kind of policy than Russia (especially since Russian diplomats were already expelled, and Russian consular buildings illegally closed).

Next, Russia needs to respond to the US zero-sum-game, but not by accepting such a logic for herself. The main problem with the zero-sum-game mindset is that it is extremely wasteful: the side engaging in it has to spent a lot of time and efforts trying to deny any victory, or even mildly positive development, to the other side. What Russia should do instead, is define a list of vulnerable and important targets/goals of the Empire, and then focus her resources and energy denying them to the US. Such a fully focused effort is much more efficient than the kind of “full spectrum pestering” the US typically engages in. The good news, at least for Russia, is that the US is both vulnerable and weak, economically, militarily, culturally, socially – you name it. As for the Empire, it has been dead for a while already: it simply ceased to operate as an empire a while ago already. Again, this reality is carefully hidden in what I call “Zone A“, but in Zone B everybody knows it, even if they pretend otherwise.

The perfect place for Russia to really make a difference would be Iran. Though the Iranians are extremely sophisticated players, both their diplomats and their military, they badly need Russian help, especially in such fields as early warning systems, targeting, over the horizon radars, air defenses (ground and air based), antisubmarine warfare, coastal defenses, etc. – you name it! Iran is, by far, the most important country in the Middle-East and Iran is therefore constantly under threat by the “Axis of Kindness”. Russia has not, so far, taken the strategic decision to give Iran the means to be safe, at least in part to be able to put pressure on Tehran when needed (Russian and Iranian goals in Syria are similar in some ways, but also distinct in others).

Finally, the Kremlin needs to become much more attuned to the arguments of the “patriotic opposition”. For one thing, many of the arguments of this patriotic opposition are correct, so listening to them is simply common sense. Second, some of these arguments are flawed, but they cannot be ignored: these arguments need counter-arguments. Simply assuming that the Russian people will always support the Kremlin no matter what is delusional and dangerous. Finally, some of these arguments are based on fallacies and only serve the interests of the US/EU/NATO block. The fact that some Russians sincerely repeat them is a dangerous sign of how susceptible some segments of the Russian society still are to US PSYOPs. For all these reasons, the Kremlin has to change its PR policies which are, frankly, becoming stale and sometimes even toxic.

Right now, there are three basic kind of opposition in Russia: the fake opposition in the Duma, which talks a lot, but basically supports the Kremlin, the non-systemic pro-US/EU opposition which probably speaks for about one percent of the Russian people, and the non-systemic “patriotic” opposition, which is also rather small, but which really needs to be represented in the Duma and become “part of the system of institutions” (as opposed to the current “one man show”) of Russia.

I am in no way suggesting that Russia should become confrontational or provocative. All that is needed is for Russia to be less “diplomatic” and much more forceful in the defense of her interests. That in turn means two things: Russian officials need to change their rather demure tone when dealing with western imperialists and, second, Russian officials needs to back their words with real, measurable, actions.

Conclusion: learn from your mistakes

Russian history is filled with cases when diplomats simply wasted the efforts and successes achieved by the Russian military. This is why the Russian military has a saying “the blood of some is spilled because of the incompetence of others” (another version: “some had to become heroes to undo that which cowards did“). Finally, if there is one thing which Russian history has shown beyond any doubt it is that the internal enemy is much, much more dangerous than the external one.

I have always maintained that the Empire and Russia have been at war since at least 2014. This is not the purely military WWIII, of course, but a war which is 80% economic, 15% informational and only 5% kinetic. This is, nonetheless, a total/existential war which will end with only one side standing, the other will vanish. For Russia, this is a war for the survival of the Russian civilizational realm, hardly a minor matter. Besides, this 80/15/5 percent war could quickly turn into a 0/0/100 kinetic one. Thus Russia needed to be very careful indeed. Now, roughly seven or eight years later, we can see that Russia has been winning, which is very good. But this war is far from over, such processes are very slow, and Russia simply cannot assume that “more of the same” from her will be enough to be victorious. All in all, the Russian policy towards the collective West has been both sound and very effective, but now the time has come for meaningful change. Should the Kremlin ignore these changing circumstances, then Russia might, yet again, be forced to solve with her military that which the diplomats failed to protect and preserve. God willing, Putin will heed the lessons taught by the history of Russia.

  1. The Russians are very capable. They’ll…do fine.
    Most of the Russians i know dont like Putin.
    A few do.
    Some are heading back.
    I believe in them.
    Hell, i know some pretty smart Russians that predict the rodina collapses before the U.S. govt.

  2. “No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country“

    Saker wants to say this statement is wrong. Too bad the facts of many wars tell a far different story than what Saker wants.

    While Russia is no longer merely a 3rd world country with nukes, the 3rd world attitudes remain. There are serious questions of how good Russia’s military is and we won’t know until it is tested in actual battle. The US is certainly rapidly declining and with social justice warriors in charge for now, the decline will accelerate.

    Be patient Saker, Biden has already handed your hero a couple unforced mistakes. The people behind him are nothing if not incompetent and will give your little friend much more in the near future.

    By the by, you’re just as uninformed as when you started publishing your nonsense.

  3. “No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country… (etc etc)”

    Saker wants to say this statement is wrong. Too bad the facts of many wars tell a far different story than what Saker wants.

    Quite correct. General Paton knew what he was talking about, and his military record proves it.

    The problem with the Saker’s assertion here is context. Different conflicts have different contexts.

    The American military of Paton’s generation was very different to the current breed.

    Sort of like comparing professionals to amateurs, winners to losers, talent to hubris, etc.

    Be patient Saker, Biden has already handed your hero a couple unforced mistakes.

    Be patient indeed. This shit has been going on for decades now, more decades to come.

  7. I liked the article. I do disagree with one part. The sidebar regarding Iran. I believe Russia and Iran are far closer than most realize in the West. Russia and Iran have been working together for two decades and they have shared enemies. A lot of the reason Iran is able to hit back every time America and Israel terrorize them is because of Russian intelligence assistance. That friendship will continue to grow I believe and I hope.

    “Finally, the Kremlin needs to become much more attuned to the arguments of the ‘patriotic opposition’.” – The Saker

    Sun Tzu emphasized the importance of information in war. People are won over to the facts by understanding them. Conveying understanding takes more time and effort than sound bites. It is the most solid basis for taking action, and gives people the most confidence to act. Understanding the facts also refutes simplistic frauds.

    On the American side, Americans need to understand that the “AngloZionist” empire is Anglo territory ruled by Zionist financiers. That is why their bribed, blackmailed, and threatened politicians and pundits push them into needless, expensive wars, and are plundering them under cover of Covid. With that understanding clear, Americans would take a unified action to free themselves. That would take top priority over the cultivated “culture wars”.

    Well, considering their experiences in the Two Chechen Wars and Syria, it seems to have come very far. As far as full-scale war, that does remain to be tested, though considering America’s military pre-SJW, it looked like our soldiers were suffering such a prodigious drop in quality as to be almost amusing. One can tell the wars are not meant to be won.

    Your tone of voice towards the end becomes so patronizing it’s painful. Why speak if you can’t act like you’re not talking to a 8-year old?

    Perfectly true. Paton know his job.

    Saker probably means that a real soldier should not be afraid to risk his life. But in the end to win you have to stay alive and kill your enemy not the way around.
    In addition, the days are long gone when Russia allowed itself to send waves after waves of peasants with rifles in front of German machine guns and in the end to win the war. Now Russia has a population about 5 times smaller than the USA + EU.
    Now the US + EU can afford human waves against Russia. Just kidding. I hope that russian generals are surpassing the hundreds of years old mentality of sacrificing milions of their own soldiers completly unnecessarily. Because they can’t afford it anymore.
    It seems that Saker did not overcome this mentality

  15. Several years ago I wrote an article which I began with the following cautionary tale:

    “Our hero is a certain man, we’ll call him Mr P, who lives in a large house with a front garden and a gate. Some way down the lane there lives a Mr A, who is a known Mafia criminal with a history of violent crime. Mr A has paid off the police chief, so there is no point complaining to the law about Mr A’s crimes. He owns the law.

    Now, Mr A covets Mr P’s nice house and garden. He doesn’t need either, but he covets them. Also, the fact that Mr P doesn’t obey his every whim, like everyone else on the street, rankles with Mr A. And Mr P is not unaware of any of this.

    One of the reasons that Mr A can get away with his crimes is that he has a gun. It is a big gun, a machine gun of 14.7mm calibre, and just about everyone else on the street is either unarmed or has only muzzle loaders. The only exception is Mr P, who happens to own a machine gun himself. Not as big as that owned by Mr A, 12.7mm rather than 14.7, but not far behind.

    Now one day Mr A comes out of his house carrying his machine gun, comes up the lane, and uses it to shoot the lock off Mr P’s gate. Mr P, watching from his window, does nothing. Mr A, seeing that his actions have brought no punishment, walks into the garden, trampling over Mr P’s flower beds, and shoots Mr P’s pet rabbits. Mr P still watches, doing nothing.

    Then Mr A begins hammering on Mr P’s front door, to which Mr P’s response is to….pull down the shutters on his windows and shout that Mr A’s activities are unacceptable and an affront to society.

    What would you think of Mr P, here? Would you commend his restraint in not starting a gunfight that would shoot up the street? When Mr A breaks into his living room, isn’t Mr P going to have to start that gunfight if he isn’t to be robbed of hearth and home?

    And what if, as soon as Mr A had emerged on to the lane, Mr P had come out of his house with his machine gun, leaned casually on his gate, and pointed the gun in A’s general direction? Would or would not have A got the message?”

    Mr A is, of course, Amerikastan, and P is, well, there isn’t any need for me to explain who he is.

    I think the Saker is wrong to claim the Amerikastani Empire has been at war with Russia since only 2014. The war has been going on since at least 1999 when Putin, then new at the job, began the process of liberating Chechnya. I still recall the Ameriganda about the “massacre of Grozny” and how the “Chechen movement is regarded by most authorities as a nationalist struggle”. This when Akhmad Kadyrov and Beslan Gantamirov’s Chechen militias were in the forefront of the liberation battle on the Russian side. That Russia persevered until Chechnya was liberated put a spanner in the works for approximately five years, roughly 2005-8.

    The next shots fired were when Medvedev became president and the Georgian Saakashvili regime immediately attacked Russian peacekeepers in South Ossetia. Medvedev however didn’t back down and made Saakashvili eat his tie on live television.

    You’ll note that these two were attacks on Russia, first directly and then via South Ossetia, and that resolute Russian action defeated the Amerikastani Empire both times.

    Defeated in these attempts, the Amerikastani Empire focus shifted to attacking Russia indirectly by destroying Russia’s friends and allies. In 2011, Russia stood by and watched while Libya was destroyed; Syria would have fallen as well but for Iranian and Hezbollah assistance and the fact that Syrian minorities and secular Sunnis, knowing exactly the fate that awaited them under a Wahhabi theocracy, fought Obama’s headchoppers back from within sight of Assad’s presidential palace (“Operation Damascus Volcano, 2012) all the way back to Daraa. Russia stood by and watched while Ukraine was openly destroyed and handed over to Nazis in 2014; but the war was going on long before that. And it goes on now, harder than ever before.

    I regular read the Canadastani propagandist Gwynne Dyer to find out what the enemy wants its people to think; Dyer, a bone deep neoliberal Cold War Reagan worshipper, regurgitates every single propaganda piece against Russia, China and Belarus as incontrovertible fact (such as “Navalny was poisoned”, “Tikhanovskaya won the Belarus election”, “Putin is a thug”, etc etc). Russian “restraint ” against people totally brainwashed by Dyer et al is pointless. They already think Russia is utterly evil, they can’t be unbrainwashed, they don’t want to be unbrainwashed, and Russia should no longer try.

    I have over and over attacked Putinist “restraint”. It has achieved nothing except emboldening Russia’s mortal enemies. And Russia’s enemies are the world’s enemies so it’s our war as well.

    If Putin isn’t ready to abandon “restraint” now, then Russia must abandon Putin. Nothing short of that.

    Saker also fails to mention that the Russian central bank, like all the others, is Rothschild controlled. It takes its orders from BIS in Basel. If Putin wasn’t a crypto-jew through his mother, and if Putin had half the number of gonads as Hitler, he would take Russia out of BIS the cabal like Hitler did. But he won’t, because he is part of the same elite that Biden and Trump are.

    Then Iran should take a hint from that crazy bastard in N. Korea and get some nukes along with delivery vehicles of their own. No one is seriously threatening N. Korea for a reason, and that reason is they have the ability to shoot back.

    Russia made monumental gains on that which is genuinely important longterm until Trump took the oath. I guess The Saker has never heard of Nord Stream II. It’s a go once again after the Navalny set-piece in concert with Germany to delay it until after the US election.

    Biden also immediately gifted Putin on nuclear weapons treaties. This subject matter also eludes The Saker for some odd reason. “But but, Biden calls Putin a ‘thug!’”

    It really isn’t all that complicated. Trump neutralized China’s North Korea card. China had exploited increasingly compromised US politicians and government officials into giving it that which was truly important by sitting on “rogue” North Korea whenever necessary. In short, Trump told China that the USG would treat North Korea as what it effectively was, a province of China, particularly when it came to nuclear weapons.

    Trump made it clear that any treaty extensions with Russia would have to include and constrain its Strategic Partner China. It took mere hours for Sleepy Joe to gift Russia and China with a five-year extension of START.

He wants to retain links with Western Europe since they have a large economy and are potential good customers.

Russia is maintaining its presence in the west via its puny bases, but does not take the steps necessary to purge the country of US/zionist predations, which it leaves to the Syrians, Iran and Hezbollah to do and bear the bloody consequences. Israel is not happy, but can live with that, as it knows this is a war of attrition fought on Uncle Shmuel’s never-ending dimes and blood. You will shortly see the US ramp up in Syria to possibly a fever pitch, likely to both test Russia’s resolve (thus gauging future Russian response to the inevitable aggression against Iran Israel seeks), and to simply continue the death-by-a-thousand-cuts that is presently Syria’s fate……

    But it would seem that the level of education of the Russians and other Soviet-dominated peoples was not what we think of as Third World. Nor did their scientific, technical, and medical proficiency and advancements make them like African, Indian, and other “Third World” peoples of the era.

    I’m no military expert. Could you please post links to a couple articles, accessible to laymen, discussing with specificity the concerns / doubts about the Russian military? Whether the RF is paying Andrei or he is just a Russian patriot, he may be exaggerating Russia‘s relative military capabilities — or not, I don‘t know. But he has, at times, been more specific than your conclusory suggestion that Russia isn‘t as strong as he claims.

    (Incidentally, despite being anti-anti-Russian, I am not Russian and don’t view a very powerful Russian military as always an unalloyed good for the rest of the world. I wouldn’t blame countries bordering Russia for being afraid if Russia had a growing population to go with its powerful military and its SOMEWHAT less demoralized, Balkanized, morally confused and deviant, slothful, and ignorant culture (compared to the USA, Canada, Britain, and Europe). But it doesn’t have a growing population and hasn’t for decades, and there is no sign that it will even return to replacement-level fertility anytime soon. The RF may have its hands full just holding their existing territory against China and, someday, a Turkey and/or Iran with equivalent populations.

    Interesting, Mr. Massey. Always appreciate the heartfelt fervor of your comments.

    There are not many Russians in the USA (and many of them are Jews who identify as Jewish before Russian, including one of our acquaintance).

    The Russians are mostly concentrated in a few areas, including the NYC / North Jersey metro, Los Angeles where we live, Chicago, SPB 😉 and a few other cities in Florida, and to a lesser extent Silicon Valley and the suburbs of Denver and Atlanta.

    https://www.forumdaily.com/en/samye-bolshie-russkie-obshhiny-v-ssha/

    Not mentioned in the article that I linked, there is a surprisingly sizable community of Russian-speakers around Salt Lake City, Utah. We discovered this only by visiting….. Some Alaskan towns have a high percentage of people claiming Russian ancestry, as one might guess from history, but their populations are insignificant.

    So I‘m curious, where do you live (roughly) that you know so many Russians? Or is your acquaintance with Russians through repeated travel to Russia, academic colleagues, an export/import business, membership in an Eastern Orthodox Church, kid marrying a Russian, or…?

    The few younger Russians that my wife and I have met in the USA were split about 50/50 re VVP. More than half the younger women didn‘t like him, while more than half the younger men did. Not a big sample, though, and we don‘t press the issue when people seem uncomfortable talking politics. I‘ll note that none of the women was married or made any mention of their families or having a family, even the ones who appeared to be in their 30s. Two of the anti-Putin women were less friendly and seemed like they would fit in with the rest of the bitter, barren dead-end “professional“ women of LA. I would be sad to see any of them adopting the deviant „culture“ of LA.

    2. Even more “sanctions” against all Russian interests: Why not. Except for being a nuclear power Russia has no other (economic, cultural etc.) significance for the US. After skimming Russia for 400 billion Russia never asked any of that to be repatriated and no one has ever been convicted of wrong doing, it became obvious that Russia is only big by its territory. That was the price that the Russian “political elites” were willing to pay just to be able to rub the shoulders with their (perceived) western counterparts. It did not work, and that’s exactly why the Russian people have always been and will always be poor.
    3. A return to Obama-era style military missile and air strikes: Will Russia ever dare to try to do something about it? No at all for as long as the former communists rule from the Kremlin. They opened many unresolved fronts around the country just for the coming generations to keep busy. It is another reason why the poor Russians will stay poor.
    4. A return to Obama-era petty harassment of Russian diplomats and citizens: The main principle in the international relations acknowledged by almost everybody is the principle of the reciprocity. The recent cowardly attitude and lack of resolve to respond in kind as a result of the deeply rooted complex of inferiority for everything western (traditional characteristic of the Russian “elites” – probably hoping that they still may be acceptable “partners”) was not conducive to building respect towards Russia. Or, to put it simply, the West has no need for Russia nor does it have much respect for it. The West mostly fears Russian nukes.
    5. Even more sabre-rattling all along the Russian borders: Russian “elites” unnecessarily destroyed their country and the Russian empire for the reasons already mentioned. Now they will try again to regain that which they already had and which they squandered, by the blood of millions of Russian peasants and workers just as they did throughout the history. They (the Russian “elites”) must be powerful again to make another try at seducing the “partners”. So, undoubtedly, soon Russia will be ripe for another revolution since the recent crimes against the nation and the people went unpunished. The “enemy” (US, West) does exactly what enemy is supposed to do: exploit the situation for its own ends.
    6. Rapid degradation of the political situation in the Ukraine: Apparently Russia is a sore loser on many fronts. Since 1992 Russia lost the most under Putin. The trend will inevitably continue. Not far in the future Russia itself will begin disintegrating starting with Muslim republics in the Caucasus. The gas station will be dismantled, this time completely, by the complicity of its own “elites” (dregs). The law of karma is not negotiable.

    Why prevent the putsch in Kiev by military means? Let the Ukrainians find out for themselves what it is like to be treated as subhumans by the Germans and Americans. It is a good lesson for them and will ensure that the occupation by the West leaves big scars on society.

    If NATO were brazen enough to launch a proper assault on the Donbass, the Russians would be justified in taking all the cities except for places like Lvov and Lutsk. With little persuasion, the “hyenas of Europe”, Poland, would be happy to reclaim them. The Nazis would rush home to try and stop the Poles. That would be ironic. 🙂

    Saker misinterprets Patton in that in Patton’s day a troop was still expected to, and most were prepared to die for their country while still having enough of an edge in so-called American Ingenuity to make it the other guy doing the dying. Patton, of course, had the luxury to say this because millions of Sov troops were wearing down the best of the Wehrmacht on Eastern Front. It would have been interesting to see how a II Corps commanded led by Patton rather than Fredendall might have fared against Rommel at the Kasserine pass.

    But to more roundly address Saker’s point, a less famous Patton quote came shortly after he took command of II Corps from a disgraced Fredendall, where told his command in the 1st ID when sending them to take a hill near Gafsa, “I expect to see such casualties among officers, particularly staff officers, as will convince me that a serious effort has been made to capture this objective.”

    In my days in the Cold War 1.0, we were trained to believe (brainwashed?) that our Sov counterparts would stick to their rigid command and control requirements and doctrine, while we would have far more latitude to operate locally (except in the nuclear sphere). This was, of course, not entirely true, as we had a lot of C3I dedicated to running much of the show from the top, which is why Desert One turned out to be a spectacular failure rather than a minor failure, as on-site commanders waited far too long for an abort order from the top rather than following the original plan to bug out when certain criteria were passed.

    What Patton was saying was a short hand version of the obvious;
    “You win wars by being good at killing the enemy. You may die for your country in the process, but that isn’t your goal, your goal is to kill them so they die for their country, so focus on being good at that.”
    All true but I would think the troops must have been muttering to themselves, “No!! Really!? Gosh, we never would have thought of that! Thanks for telling us General!”

    As far as Russian peasants with rifles throwing themselves on machine gun nests. Enemy at the Gates was a great war movie, but it wasn’t the war. The Russians took a lot of casualties because
    1. The Germans troops were superbly trained, organized, led and motivated.
    2. For the first six months of the war they rampaged over Russia while the Red Army regrouped and reorganized, and in the process inflicted a lot of casualties on the Russians
    3. Generally, an army on the offensive will take higher losses than an army on the defensive. For the remaining three years of the war the Russians were relentlessly on the offensive over a huge area against a stubborn German Army that sacrificed millions of its own men as well to slow them down. Russians were no more indifferent to losses than Germans.

    When it came to equipment, I would recommend the book Brute Force by John Ellis. It includes extensive figures on the resources of the combatants in WW2. The Russians were much better equipped overall than the Germans. German peasants were trained better than Russian peasants, but those Russians deployed far more tanks, trucks, warplanes, automatic infantry weapons and artillery pieces than the Germans. The German army had to rely on 2.5 million horses for transport, the largest horse force in military history.
    The Russians produced nearly 100,000 medium and heavy tanks and their T-34 medium and IS heavy tanks were superior in design to the tanks the German started the war with. Their production was so high they weren’t even sure exactly how much material they put out. For example their estimate of T-34 production ranges from 60 to 85 thousand. The production number for the Il-2 ground attack bomber, which was the WW2 equivalent of the A-10 Warthog, and ravaged the panzers, may have been over 40,000. The Germans were able to eventually match the Russian tanks in quality with their Panther and Tiger, but by then the Russians were out-producing them by 10:1.
    Those Russian peasants were overrunning German positions, but they were doing it with heavy artillery, rocket and fighter-bomber support, between swarms of modern tanks, and carrying fully automatic PPSh submachine guns.

  60. What happened is concisely described in another piece on this site:
    At 78, after a prolonged illness and without recovering consciousness, Joe Biden succumbed to the Presidency. (from https://www.unz.com/ishamir/america-descends-into-virtual-night/)

    But, as I wrote already somewhere on this site, the main US problem is not that Biden is senile, but that his puppet masters are. The first barrage of “presidential” orders from them accelerated the destruction of the US to dangerous levels. They approved additional (on top of recurring astronomical deficits) borrowing to the tune of trillions, further undermining the US financial system and the US dollar. They made former Raytheon board member defense secretary, and removed restrictions on trannies serving in the US military. Both moves further weaken the US military, so any adversary, including Russia, can only applaud. They essentially made illegally entering the US OK, undermining the very fabric of law and the country. They even allowed trannies to compete in women’s sports, essentially killing all women’s sports in one blow.

    The fact that imperial elites do more damage to the Empire than its worst enemies possibly could justifies Putin’s policies: when you see your enemy committing suicide, do not interfere.

    However, there is internal dynamics in Russia, and it goes against Putin’s cautiousness, however wise it might be in the long run. While libtards’ support in Russia is pathetic (optimistically, maybe 1%) and it further dwindled after self-discrediting of Navalny clown on the orders of his clueless paymasters, rabidly anti-Western opposition enjoys much greater support (anywhere between 15% and 40%, hard to gauge precisely). Putin does need to change his rhetoric, not Russian strategy, but Russian tactics: make it more assertive, but not as wantonly provocative as the tactics of the Empire in its death throes. Most importantly, Russia needs to create its own equivalents of things like Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube, and then cut off the US propaganda, like China did. Some moves in this direction are happening spontaneously (e.g., I changed my browser and search engine to Yandex to get rid of hopelessly cucked Google, and both work just fine; you can do it, too, even in the US). But state support is needed to accelerate these processes, so that they are competed in a few years.

Having mentioned the West including ‘weak Britain’ I thought something might be said about the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Germany , linking to France, and the U.K. Europe is already implementing the agreement that CO2 emissions will be reduced by 55% in 2030 compared to 1990, and carbon neutral by 2050 (China 2060).

    Two seemingly disparate groupings have achieved power in Ukraine since the Maidan Coup which overthrew that suffering country’s last duly elected government at the behest of Rottenchild uber minion, Little Georgie of our $orrow$, along with NeoCon Robert Kagan’s little squeeze Viccious Nudelman (aka Vickie Nuland) and the U$ Department of $tate.

    (#1. the Khazarian Judeocracy, first under Porkyshenko (son of Ukraine’s delegate to the Kiev, Moscow, Tel Aviv, City of London, Wall $treet and Brooklyn Mafiya) and more recently under Zelensky.

    (#2. The Galician fascist element. Stalin “returned” Galicia from Poland to Ukraine after WWII. It’s Jews had been partly killed off, partially evacuated deep into the bowels of the USSR and became “displaced persons” after the war, many of them ending up in the U$. Meanwhile Galicia’s Poles were shipped to the formerly German provinces such as Pomerania and Silesia which Stalin (with the acquiescence of FDR and Churchill) granted to Poland.

    Traditionally, the originally Orthodox Galicians became “united” with the Polish-Lithuanian Jagiellonian empire, a virulently Roman Catholic regime. Siding with Rome, these turncoats became known as “Uniates”, maintaining Orthodox-style rituals while falling into line with the Papacy, thus pleasing their Habsburg rulers. During WWII a huge number of Galicians joined up with the Germans, as Nazism meshed well with their Catholic fascism—much like the Ustasha fanatics in Croatia. Funded and armed by the U$, these latter-day haters, along with some Lithuanians, constituted the snipers who willy-nilly shot both protesters and police at Maidan, energizing and activating the coup,

    Zionism and fascism are not mutually exclusive doctrines, as both elements are all about grabbing control over state-power and merging that with economic imperialists in a happy melange of thuggish corruption. That ruling combo is the current cross twhich the ever-suffering people of Ukraine need to deal with on an everyday basis.

    Sometimes I think The Saker might be Jewish. He appears to use that term in every article he writes is one giveaway. Using the politically correct term “Zionist” when “Jewish” is much more descriptive is another giveaway and the third giveaway is constantly referring to Ukrainians as “NAZIS” when Jews dominate the Ukraine government and its media. The Saker could be called a coward but in fairness I can understand him being “timid” when it comes to being forthright and honest. It’s considered “anti-Semitic” not to say “Zionist” when you mean Jewish.

    The Jews now run Ukraine. The Ukrainian hero Bandera who fought against the mass murdering Bolsheviks has been removed from Ukraine’s list of official heroes under pressure from the Jews but there is still hope. Patriotic Ukrainians, which racist Jewish supremacists refer to as “far right”, “NAZI” and other pejoratives are still fighting for their country and its honor. Only a few weeks ago they held a protest in Kiev demanding Jews apologize for murdering millions of Ukrainians in communist times. The Jew writing the article tries to minimize Jews leading (sometimes dominating) role in communism and complains the Ukrainian’s took revenge on the Jews and writes as if Ukrainians joining forces with the Germans was wrong, or maybe “evil”, ignoring that he himself is evil. Of course Ukrainians fought with the Germans against their bloodthirsty murderers, as did Byelorussians, Latvians, Estonians and even Russians, they all sometimes welcomed protection by the Germans from their Bolshevik murderers.

    For more than 75 years Jews have lied about their leading role in the USSR as well as their powerful role in the USA and Great Britain, using their influence to push those countries into war with Germany and doing what they could to make it the bloodiest war in history, but then they only complain that Jews suffered, while they cover up their role in having British and American bombers target millions of German civilians for extermination in their cities, which they (not so) secretly cheer. That is one of the biggest cover ups and lies, the mass murder of a significant percentage of the German population from the air above. Eventually I hope the lies that dominate the narrative will fall and it will be clear that the Jewish role in making WW II the bloodiest war ever played a big role in how they were treated by their enemies.

  77. The author started out quite well. He pointed out that although the clowns change, the circus remains the same. These is true and critical to understanding the actual power structure of most “Republics”. However, I find that once the Saker gets into History, or Russia, he inevitably makes a fool of himself by his ridiculous determination to paint the Russians in a positive light. The idea of Russian military proficiency, in a HISTORICAL sense, is pure idiocy. The Russians have routinely lost several of their own men for each enemy killed, showcasing their incompetence. In WWI they lost some 3 to one against the Germans. In the Crimean war it was nearly 2 to one. The winter war against tiny Finland was 5 to 1. WW2 against Germany was also 5 to one for much of the war until the Germans were totally overwhelmed. Against Napoleon, the Russians retreated over 1,000 kilometres. If any other European power had done that, they would have lost their entire country. Most of Russia’s so called victories where simply because it is a HUGE country with a far larger population that it’s historical foes. if you have enough of an advantage in men and material, you can win even despite being incompetent. Now, they did have some success for example against Austro-Hungarians in WWI, and I am not implying that all Russians are incompetent or that they are inferior to Americans in the 21st century. However, the Saker insists on characterizing Russians as being historically superior, when in fact the opposite is true. He also fails to understand that russia is corrupt, and has very much been compromised like the rest of the world. Russia had/ has some of the highest abortion rates in the world, and has murdered well over 100 million babies. As others have said, they also are deeply in bed with the Rothschild banksters, etc. The west is corrupt and evil, but Russia is too. The Saker fails to grasp this, and it unfortunately ruins what could otherwise be decent writing and analysis.

    On the one hand, he is starting to show a sense of over-confidence in his point of view, which militarily, is much the bane to success in the future.

    Next… Yes, the United States is in quite turmoil right now and though President Biden may have similar impulses as his predecessors on the world stage, he has more than enough domestic issues to keep him quite busy without attempting to initiate any more foreign policy blunders, especially as they apply to China and Russia.

    Finally, though the US military may be quite immense (and quite bloated as a result), it is also highly decentralized by maintaining its near 900 bases around the world. Each base then has become a killing field for the more modern Russian, Chinese, and even Iranian weaponry. This was demonstrated by Iran a year ago when Trump foolishly targeted and murdered the beloved senior Iranian general, Qasem Soleimani.

    It is quite true that the US Armed Forces have become quite incompetent over the years with completely inadequate equipment and weaponry but this is not simply the fault of who is coming into the military but how it is instead being run, which is mostly by politicized generals and senior commanders and their corresponding counterparts in the US weapons manufacturers.

Having a rear guard of Commissars to shoot down any opposition to this insanity underlines the mentality behind it. The men were meat packets they could trade for German ammunition.

    The main advantage for the Soviets was that Stalin had set the entire country on a permanent military footing over a decade previous. Exchanging lives for gold so he could buy the newest industrial technology from the West, and use slave labor at home to build the infrastructure. That kind of brutality is something the Germans could never match.

    On the other hand, what was made in Germany was generally of much better quality and their ability to maintain it, quite superior. When we look at the numbers it is hard to say that the USSR enjoyed any significant production advantage, if any.

    If there is a Soviet advantage here it will not be enough to offset the German kill ratio which was 2 to 1 at worst and as high as 5 to 1 in favorable conditions.

    What failed Germany was having to fight so many fronts. East, West, South and North + Air and Sea. The Eastern front doesn’t start to collapse until the landings in France and Italy.

  97. I think I understand Putin’s attitude. Why should Russia be worried when the US is so determined to tear itself apart? When everyone in that nation of mongrels hates all the others who are not of the same ethnicity or race or religion? The American Empire is going down, it’s doomed by its own internal contradictions.

    They may share some similarities, but Zionism and Nazism are two different things

    They share one defining similarity: both are based on “my tribe is better than your tribe” notion. The only difference is that German Nazism assumes that Germans are better than anyone else, whereas Zionism assumes that Jews are better than anyone else. Considering how many nationalisms there are in the world, each assuming that their particular tribe is better than all others, this difference is immaterial.

    Actually, after writing that, I regretted not adding exactly what you said: that while many were true believers and patriots, an awful lot knew that if they didn’t fight and win, Stalin would execute them for not falling on a German bayonet rather than retreating. So if their positions went sour, they either fought to the death, or when captured, many of them simply switched sides, as previous Unz articles and commenters have pointed out. Most of those still got executed, and I believe their close family members may also have been persecuted, when the Russkies prevailed, as they were hell bent on severely punishing the traitors who went to the side of the Germans.

    Yep, war is nothing but bloody folly, no doubt about it.

    Though you are looking at historical precedents, elements which can never entirely discounted, it strikes me that you are enamored with those precedents and are not taking into consideration the major changes which have been developing within Russia’s military since Putin assumed power.

    The changes have been dramatic: Hypersonic missiles, which the U$ with its bloated, private WarDefense industry is now trying desperately to mimic and to counter. A naval force which is clean and mean, not the doddering Soviet machinery. Advanced fighter jets, Sukhois and Migs,which are rated as equal to if not better than Western equivalents. Robot tanks, an area which the West has yet to explore, to say nothing about develop. Last, but definitely not least, a new personnel policy in deep contrast to the former habits of officers and non-coms to treat the grunts like shit. The world-class S-400 anti-aircraft missiles which even the Turks have lined up to acquire, much to the chagrin of the U$ and NATO. Unarguably the most advanced anti-ship missiles in the world.

    While the U$ military is currently plagued by having been made an “equal opportunity employer” and with an officer class which makes for waaaay too many chiefs as compared with Indians; the Russian system is fast becoming leaner and meaner and capable of hitting in a much higher weight class than previously.

    In this day and age only fools would mess with Mama Bear. No one bidder, cost-overrun contracts in Putin’s Russia, quite unlike the Lockheed-Martin (its largest owners being London Bank$ters led by the Rottenchild regime) with its F-35, now in at a Trillion and which pilots refer to as “the Flying Turkey”. At maybe 1/5th the cost, the Russians get far more bang for the Ruble than we get for the Federal Re$erve dollar.

    Better check on your stats. Germany had more battleships than the Bismarck and the Von Tirpitz. They also had “pocket” battleships, the Graf Spee being the most noted one and maybe a battle-cruiser or two. Several cruisers which included the Emden, the Nurnberg, The Blucher and the Prinz Eugen, which went down as a war-trophy at Bikini when the U$ was testing nukes.

    German military logistics told Hitler that he had three weeks…(yes only three weeks) to win the war in Russia because the German and Russian railways used different gauges. This meant that German supplies would need to be transferred from a German train to a Russian train at the border.

    On top of this they also told Hitler, that due to manufacturing limitations, Hitler could only expect two thirds of the required material for his invasion to be supplied, under those circumstances, to front line forces.

    The choice was between ammunition, food and clothing. Of course there were other liabilities but this was the essence. The Wehrmacht chose ammunition and food, which meant they could not deal with the Russian winter.

    To say the Russian campaign failed because of Hitler’s micro managing of the Russian front is rubbish and shows your absolute ignorance of the reality of the situation.

    All these facts are available in German Wehrmacht military records, though I doubt you would know this, just as all your Zionist friends who like you detract the situation out of ignorance and hubris.

    You probably are unaware that Hitler repeatedly tried to make peace treaties with Britain, but as Churchill was a Rothschild shill and the Rothschilds desperately wanted another war, Churchill declined every approach, preferring to sacrifice and debase his own nation, just as Boris Johnson is today.

    Slavery is the most profitable business ever invented closely followed by war. Maybe you should research who supplied Hitler with all the American made machine tools that Germany used to build the Luftwaffe too! And which bank financed the sale.

  113. @Majority of One

    Munitions are in billion dollars spent, just to show they are equal.

    Graf Spee, Blucher et. al were not made during the war. And it doesn’t matter since Germany’s resources went mostly into Subs and they made quite a few of those. You could build 15 subs for one Prince Eugen if we compare the amount of steel needed. So potentially a capacity for 30 Battleships or 80 Cruisers for the Germans. Quite significant and comparable to the British and American production of 20 and 90 each.

    But obviously more cost effective and strategically useful to build 1100 subs instead.

    Again, you should have understood what I wrote. Trump insisted that Russia’s strategic partner China be included in any nuclear arms control agreement for reasons that should be obvious even to you.

    Germany lost WWI and WWII because they were simply overwhelmed. They had far superior armed forces in both wars, and had a favorable casualty ration in almost all the major campaigns. But when you have a population of 70-85 million and your fighting against: USSR 205 million, USA 135 million, UK 50 million, (including the british empire over 500 million)…. victory is virtually impossible. Defeating an enemy that is outnumbered 10 to 1 in men and material is not much of an achievement, regardless of what the “Greatest generation” types think.

Julian is a great truth-teller and real fighter against moral corruption, which is unacceptable for the ZUSA’s representatives at the American Embassy in Moscow.

  122. A return to Obama-era style military missile and air strikes. Probably not on Russian targets (yes, Hillary advocated that, but now this would be much more dangerous than 5 years ago), but definitely on Russian allies like Syria (including attacks on Iranian and Venezuelan vessels on the high seas).

    American(and Western by extension) morality is utterly bogus because Jews control the gods and most Western folks are pretty hollow inside. They have no internal engine of conscience. Their moral engines are usually dormant or in hibernation mode UNLESS switched on by some outside force. If some people are totally hollow, others are totally partisan in their morality, and this goes for both sides. So, Democrats who were okay with Obama doing A were suddenly enraged that Trump was doing the same. Okay if my guy does it, Nokay if your guy does it. Bogus morality. Or Republicans who were okay with Trump doing B are suddenly outraged that Biden is doing it. Thus, morality is just a partisan tool. Moral hollowness and moral opportunism are, as the cliche goes, old as the hills, and Americans, for all their conceit of ‘exceptionalism’ and ‘indispensability’, are no different.

    Take BLM for instance. If indeed good, decent, and wonderful American ‘Liberals’ are so weepy-poo about the Black Problem, where were they on the issue until the media promoted BLM? Why were these people who were hunky dory with Bill Clinton locking up tons of Negroes, Obama prioritizing Globo-Homo over black concerns, Bloomberg using stop-and-frisk on blacks, Democrats using mass immigration to replace blacks, and real estate moguls using gentrification to drive blacks out of cities? They were fine with all that but suddenly they were prostrating themselves before BLM in 2020. Are they so hollow that their souls must be poured with moral content by an outside force for them to feel any sense of injustice? Interestingly enough, they weren’t fully onboard with BLM even in 2016 when Obama was in office. There are two reasons for this. The Jewish-run media pushed BLM whole hog in 2020 whereas only half-heartedly in 2016. So, the hollow souls were filled to the brim with BLM outrage in 2020, and that accounts for their sudden rush of ‘conscience’. Also, there was the Trump Factor. All the Trump-haters saw an opportunity to virtue-signal, especially with the hope that it would bring defector blacks back to the fold if the Democratic Party knelt before Negroes. In either case, it was Jews calling the shots and goyim following along. Jews lead, goyim follow.

    If Americans had true morality, they wouldn’t need the Power telling them to wave the BLM flag and wash Negro feet. They would have been doing it all these years. So, why did so many people become so obsessed with BLM all of a sudden? They are like children who must be told by adults what to think, how to feel, and what to say. Furthermore, they have no autonomous sense of facts or truth. BLM is based on a lie. White cops are NOT mowing down innocent blacks all across America. But many people refuse to accept the truth because they, like children, prefer the Narrative from the so-called ‘adults in the room’. Their moral sense is tied to authority and who has it. And there are others who know BLM is founded on a lie BUT still go along because Negrolatry is central to their lives. As the result of all those Magic Negro movies, blacks sports-music domination, and ‘white guilt’ narrative about Slavery, many whites kneel before blackness as the holy of holies. Just like some people know God doesn’t exist but still belong to a church because they love the idea and tradition, many whites know the facts of black crime & violence but stick with the faith in the Noble Negro. Emotions > Motions.

    Also, notice the total lack of consistency in their moral outrage. If indeed human lives mattered, American ‘liberals’ would be MOST OUTRAGED by the countless Arab/Muslim lives destroyed by Wars for Israel pushed by Evil Zionist Hegemonists. If American ‘liberals’ had true moral sense, they’d respond to BLM with, “But the number of innocent blacks killed by bad cops is piddling compared to all the innocent Arabs and Muslims killed by the US war machine and US support for terrorists, aka ‘moderate rebels’.” During the Trump term, most ‘liberals’ were outraged(instigated by the Jewish-run media, of course, as most white ‘liberals’ utterly lack moral agency) by Trump’s attempts to draw down troops in the Middle East. And they were utterly silent about what Obama did to Libya and Syria. Also, for all their conceit of ‘knowledge’ and ‘critical thinking’, most ‘liberals’ swallowed whole hog the Jewish Media Narrative that the US was working with decent rebels to overthrow bloody tyrant Assad. Or, the Jewish-run media pushed bogus nonsense about US troops having to remain in Syria to protect the Kurds from the Turks. Never mind it was the US that encouraged Turkey, along with other nations, to intervene in Syria and stir up trouble. So-called ‘liberals’ might as well be called Gulliberals. Of course, many conzos are gullible in their own way, what with the nonsense they swallowed about China-China-China and Iran-Iran-Iran when, in fact, their main enemy is Jew, Jew, Jew.

    All these ‘liberals’ who were denouncing cops as killers and calling for defunding the police NEVER called out the US military as a killing machine when, in fact, it is far more so than cops. If anything should be defunded for its crimes against humanity, it is Pentagon. Apparently, a single life of a black criminal has more value than a million Arab lives. (Surreally enough, perverted US imperialism even spun American Shame into American Self-Righteousness. If BLM is true and the US is really an evil nation where innocent blacks are routinely murdered by ‘systemic racism’, shouldn’t it undermine America’s role in the world? Surely, a country that murders its own citizens shouldn’t be preaching to the rest of the world, let alone pushing them around with its military might. But US foreign policy spun BLM as a point of pride, i.e. “Because we in the Foreign Service denounce Donald Trump and ‘white supremacism’, we are the Good Guys with the right to tell the world what’s what.”

    [MORE]

    While some bad cops do end up killing innocent people(more whites than blacks), the number of innocent people killed by US cops in any given year can be counted on two hands. In contrast, 100,000s of Arabs and Muslims have been killed by wars, sanctions, and support of terrorism by the Jewish-controlled West. And millions have been displaced from their homes. If anything, the US military deserves all the vitriol, but notice how gulliberals, just like conzos, have no problem with the stupid cult of Veteran-Worship. US military invades and destroys other nations, BUT we hear the endless tripe about how they are fighting to defend our freedom. What does occupying the oil-rich regions of Syria have to do with the freedom of Americans? If US generals and soldiers really want to defend freedom in the US, they should attack Wall Street banks that deny service to US citizens. They should attack Big Tech that denies free speech to people who dare speak truth to power. Cops only go after criminals whereas US soldiers invade OTHER nations and drop bombs and destroy civilian lives, but has there been calls to Take the Knee about all those dead Arabs and Muslims? Has any US corporation donated millions to BDS in solidarity with Palestinian lives and rights? Has any US street been painted with PLM or Palestinian Lives Matter sign?

    What good is morality as approval by authority(a kind of ‘morauthority’) or partisan opportunism? And what is the authority and who calls the shots on the moral opportunism? Jewish Power. So, Jews essentially have the lock on what is moral and ‘spiritual’ in America. Jews control the gods, and it’s no wonder all these goyim are such hapless idiots. But are conzos any better with their ‘Muh Israel’ and ‘We Bless Jews’ antics despite Jews doing the most to destroy true patriotism? It goes to show no genuine conservative or patriotic movement is possible unless it calls for white liberation or goy emancipation from Jewish Supremacism.

    What’s truly perverse is the paradox of how White Morality has been used to actually make whites less moral under Jewish Control. Jews are baiting ‘white guilt’ not to make whites more moral and conscientious. The last thing Jews want is a white person who is morally consistent. While Jeremy Corbyn’s support of Open Borders and Diversity is nuts, he is at least consistent in his denunciation of both white and Jewish evils. So, if it was wrong for whites to practice apartheid in South Africa, it is wrong for Jews as well in Israel and West Bank. But oh no, Jews couldn’t accept that and did everything to bring down Jeremy Corbyn and install a total Zio-Cuck in the Labour Party.

    So, what are Jews really after when they bait ‘white guilt’ if it isn’t to make whites more moral, more principled, more conscientious, and more consistent in their application of justice? It is to rob whites of pride, dignity, and worth as a race. It is to psychologically paralyze whites and castrate their sense of righteousness. Thus beaten and robbed of autonomy, whites are left without agency, independence, and liberty. Whites are made to look to the Holy Other for guidance, approval, and redemption. And who would this Other be? All the various diverse groups? Of course not. Imagine what would happen to Jewish Power IF whites heeded the calls for justice for Palestinians. No, the Holy Other is to be Jewish, and Jews use all their money power, media power, and state power to make sure the white mind is bound to Jewish Authority. As Jews control the media and academia(as well as the whores who run government), no white person grows up without worshiping the Holy Holocaust that associates all Jews since time immemorial with tragic sanctity(contra White ‘Antisemitic’ Evil). And because the Shoah happened in Europe and white Americans aren’t culpable(except in the indirect sense that White America is an outgrowth of Europe), Jews make a big fuss about ‘white guilt’ in relation to blacks, and then tie the ‘racism’ toward blacks with ‘racism’ toward Jews in Europe — never mind Jews were co-partners with European Imperialists in invading and exploiting the world.

    Now, one would think all this browbeating would make whites more moral and conscientious, but not so. It just makes them more servile and slavish to Jews, at whose feet they worship and beg forgiveness. This means Jews can manipulate ‘white guilt’ to support anything Jews wish. After all, if whites are stained with sin whereas Jews are aglow with sanctity, how dare whites dare to say NO to any Jewish demand. Then, it’s no wonder that whites, burdened with ‘white guilt’, are totally onboard with Jewish supremacist madness all over the world. This is true of whites in Europe and the US. Germans have nothing to say about all the Wars for Israel. If indeed Germans were truly conscientious and morally redemptive in light of what happened in WWII, they would be denouncing Jewish Supremacism and Zionist Imperialism on grounds of “It was wrong for us Germans to be Nazis, then it’s wrong for Jews to act like Nazis.” But no, ‘German Guilt’ means Germans must look the other way while Jews push Zion Uber Alles across the Middle East and North Africa. So, ‘German Guilt’ hasn’t made Germans more moral but made them more subservient to Jewish Evil.

    In the end, any supposed guilt matters less than WHO is doing the guilt-baiting. For example, Germans in WWII led to the deaths of 20 million Soviets(or maybe more). Millions of Poles perished as the result of German aggression and occupation. And yet, Germans seem to have no conscience in regard to Russians and Poles. Germans have acquiesced to Jew-American ‘new cold war’ against Russia. And Germans pressured Poles to open their borders and allow their nation to be flooded with Africans and Muslims(many of whom were displaced by Wars for Israel). Considering what German invasion did to Poland in WWII, you’d think Germans would be the last ones to throw their weight around with the Poles(and call for demographic erasure of Poland), but Germans don’t care. Their ‘morality’ is bogus and essentially comes down to sucking up to Jews as a holy people and obeying Jews no matter how evil the act.
    And it’s no different among White Americans. There is no genuine morality or conscience. While a sense of guilt can lead to higher morality, it is only so when the guilt is genuine, internal, and has agency. After all, we’ve all done something wrong, felt remorse, and wished to make amends. But ‘white guilt’ doesn’t work like that. Rather, it was concocted by Jews who took advantage of the moral component in Americanism. America was founded as a Christian and Enlightenment Civilization, and there’s been a running thread in American History to make progress and make amends. And that was all for the good. But Jews exploited this aspect of Americanism and turned in it into moral pornography. The Jewish Narrative wasn’t about flawed whites who could be better(along with the rest of humanity) but about whiteness being the absolute worst. Instead of prodding the white conscience to be better, Jewish guilt-baiting was about sodomizing the white soul with total humiliation. It was to turn the white soul into a ‘bitch’ of the Jews. “You’re my bitch!” Thus broken and robbed of pride and dignity, ‘white guilt’ only knows one thing: To seek the approval of the Master, the Jews. As the Narrative says “whites are the devil, and Jews are the god”, whites have been led to believe their moral value is incumbent on sucking up to divine Jews, but it’s the Jews who are the real devils in the current world order.

    And it is in this sense that BLM is indirectly related to the mass mayhem in the Middle East and North Africa. After all, what is the real purpose of BLM? Sure, it is in part a Jewish way of flattering black megalomania to keep the alliance. But the other and bigger reason is to paralyze white pride and dignity. It is to burden whites with so much ‘white guilt’ that whites are reduced to cucky browbeaten saps. Do saps have agency? No, how can there be agency without pride and dignity? Thus robbed of agency by the cult of ‘white guilt’, white ‘morality’ is no real morality because saps always look to the Holy Other for benediction. And as this Other is Jewish Authority, the end-result is whites slavishly going out on a limb to appease Jews to win their approval. So, if Jews want to destroy the Middle East to further the Yinonist Plan, whites just go along. Thus, white pseudo-morality has been calibrated to serve Jewish Evil. ‘White Guilt’ is like the kind of ‘guilt’ shown by dogs that anxiously crave the approval and affection of their master uber alles.

    The sheer ‘bogosity’ of ‘white guilt’ easily proves that Jews control the gods. If Jews did not and if white conscience was for real, whites would be mindful not only of injustice done to blacks but injustice done by blacks to non-blacks. Furthermore, whites would be mindful about the evils of Jewish-controlled foreign policy that destroyed so many lives in the Middle East and North Africa. Whites would be condemning Jews working with quasi-Nazis in Ukraine. Whites would call out all those homos working in the US deep state to spread terror and promote neo-imperialism. But no, ‘white morality’ is totally under the spell of the gods controlled by Jews, and as such, it totally supports all the crazy Jewish schemes(no matter the body count) and vilifies whatever Jews hate.

    This is why nothing is possible without White Liberation from Jewish Supremacism.

    But then, we are now living in a time where mere support of Free Speech gets you banned from banking and financial services. All of us pay taxes to bail out banks, but banks can deny us service merely for the fact that any of us might support free speech. Just ask GAB, a platform open to all. Because free speech leads to real discussion, speaking truth to power, and development of true conscience, it cannot be tolerated by Jewish Supremacist Power. For Jews, only Controlled Conscience is tolerable, with Jews doing the controlling. But of course, ‘controlled conscience’ is an oxymoron as no true conscience is directed from the outside. True conscience is what you feel from within, like with the soldier in HACKSAW RIDGE.

    What Jews are pushing in AmeriKa is Konscience. And the so-called ‘woke’ are really hypnotized or dazed. Just about everything they ‘think’ and say has been instilled and ordered by Jewish Power, but of course, they don’t know it because they were brainwashed from cradle. As children accept things uncritically and unconditionally and as current Western Society encourages infantilization, many white folks never developed critical thinking or true conscience. Also, the Jewish promotion of rampant sexualization further served to stunt the maturation of white minds. Sexualized at a young age, white kids became slaves of sensations and sensualism as transmitted through the electronic media controlled by Jews. They become animalized without the critical brakes that distinguish man from beast. In a way, animals are wild and out-of-control, but in another way, they are easier to control because they have simple minds. Look at all those idiot crowds screaming as one at rock concerts. As Jews control the means of titillation, they can associate the pleasures in Pavlovian manner with whatever agendas they hold dear. Have people scream out of control at a rock concert and then pull out a massive homo flag, and the screams will follow along. There is the abortion of killing unborn kids, but there is also the mental abortion of preventing the emergence of adult mentalities among goyim.

    Patton was an experienced general and he was completely right. Of course it is important for a warrior to be willing to risk injury and death; but being effective in battle is about killing your enemies, not losing your own men. This is so obvious that it is hard to imagine you or the saker would even think to dispute it. It is hard to imagine that you think losing your own men is a better strategy than killing enemies, unless you are deranged. The Vietcong caused heavy losses and the casualties suffered by the Americans was the primary reason they pulled out of Vietnam. The draftee army was not going to put up with being cannon fodder in a war of aggression any longer.

    Germany lost WWI and WWII because they were simply overwhelmed… But when you have a population of 70-85 million and your fighting against: USSR 205 million, USA 135 million, UK 50 million… victory is virtually impossible.

    Interesting, you confirm what I have always claimed, Germany first starts a war and only then they learn to count. Arithmetic would’ve been a useful skill which Hitler didn’t have. Also, as evident by your comment, the turn of thinking skills hasn’t yet arrived.

    Defeating an enemy that is outnumbered 10 to 1 in men and material is not much of an achievement, regardless of what the “Greatest generation” types think.

    It is quite a bit of an achievement considering the treacherous way of attack, after signing a peace treaty in bad faith. And it wasn’t 1 to 10, seems arithmetic is still lacking over there. UK and US didn’t enter the war until 1944 when Hitler has already lost control over the Eastern front, he was in a full blown rout mode by then. Moreover, all of Europe was supplying the Wehrmacht, including troops from several countries.

    I still don’t understand why the West gets outright suicidal when it comes to Russia. Hitler was just a suicide bomber, not the first and not the last of its kind. Indeed, Russia can destroy the West entirely, but that’s not a deterrent or a mission stopper, as the past 10 months have shown, self-destruction isn’t even a concern here.

    As Putin noticed, the whole West now looks much like Germany 1933, however, he seems incapable of articulating a viable political answer. Instead, he keeps trying to please the EU center, as if he forgot history. Without real politics, Realpolitik is wrought with risks, Stalin and Nikolas II would attest to it.

    Presumably the Russian Federation can sustain massive exports of foodstuffs to overpopulated China, India, and Africa – far more than they export now. Africa may suffer declining available fertile farmland due to the expansion of the desert and other factors, making them more reliant on Russian food imports:

    https://borgenproject.org/10-facts-about-farming-in-africa/

    But Russia’s government may decide to limit such exports so that more food is available for their own people at a more reasonable price:

    Also, I think that the RF is the biggest exporter of nuclear reactors in the world. It seems that have a significant and growing business exporting nuclear reactors and then getting paid to operate and maintain them in the importing countries, including China, India, Iran, Turkey, and some African countries.

    I don’t know enough to guess whether that could compensate for an appreciable part of a future decline in fossil-fuel exports:

  134. All that is needed is for Russia to be less “diplomatic” and much more forceful in the defense of her interests.

    Your idea that Hitler didn’t understand math is pretty silly. Your comment is not witty or insightful. I wonder if you are translating your thoughts from another language because you are not making very much sense. My comment was explaining that the idea of Russian military proficiency in WW2 is mostly myth. They lost 5 to one casualties even against tiny Finland, and 5 to one against the Germans for much of the War.

    “UK and US didn’t enter the war until 1944” The UK was at war with Germany since September 3 1939… almost two years before the Soviets.

    “And it wasn’t 1 to 10, seems arithmetic is still lacking over there.” USSR 205 Million, USA 135 million, British empire 531 million. French empire 107 million = 978 million not counting numerous other countries who fought with the allies. The population of Greater Germany was around 86 million. So yes, outnumbered MORE THAN 10 to one.

The Jewish State sent Israeli rifles and the Jewish Lobby (the ADL and such) stepped in in support of weaponizing the self-proclaimed neo-Nazis (Banderites) against Russians and against those Ukrainians that were ‘disloyal’ to the zionist/Banderite regime.

    It is thanks to the Zio-Banderite union that Ukraine has fallen under the control of the ZUSA. The country was raped, robbed, and defouled. Currently, Ukraine is the poorest country in Europe – and the most corrupt country in Europe. Kolomojsky prospered, Grossman & Zelenski came to power, and Bidens have brought their “law.”

    Politics isn’t war regardless of what people of “other means” say. Politics includes issues like people’s rights vs government rights, social organization, corruption, checks and balances, identity, solidarity, vision of country’s place among its neighbors and in the world, etc. I have my own preferences but that’s not the point, Russia is as vague on these issues as the West, preferring instead to speak in terms of money, trade, war and peace. Maybe you’re right and Russia is threatened with some sort of conflict if they take a firm stand, I don’t know.

    “where do you see him trying to please EU? EU put sanctions on RF, and Putin responded”
    I didn’t say “please the EU” but “please the EU center”. Sanctions and such do not affect all EU countries equally. From what I can see, Russia has adopted the priorities of Germany and France vs the rest of the EU. It’s likely a gas-driven political stance.

    Certainly both the US and the Israeli military follow Patton’s aphorism, engaging in the type of “war” which can be conducted with absolute minimal casualties on their side and a maximum on the other. That is to say, usually, from the air with bombs and missiles and, preferably, from a great height.

    Both have shown that they don’t have the stomach for ground wars because, well, they might get hurt. They either keep the enemy at arms length – or get the ‘loyal’ locals to do the in-fighting, as in Afghanistan, where the Uzbeks and Tajiks went ‘knocking on doors” while the US troops stood well back in their body armor. Fundamentally, the Taliban have prevailed because they proceed contrary to Patton’s advice – they take big losses, inflicting much smaller ones in return, but they keep right on coming. This is how the Iranians will fight – and the US knows it and lacks those ‘loyal’ locals. Did somebody suggest the Saudis?

    If Russian had intended to bomb civilians in Chechnya, it would be level to the ground.
    NATO and Turkey and KSA et al armed, trained and injected Wahhabi terrorists into Chechnya when RF was weak, with the intention of establishing a NATO terrorist beachhead there.

    The terrorists were finally defeated and cleansed largely thanks to Chechens (Kadyrov clan and others) ) who despise the Wahhabi scum and are happy to be part of RF.
    Moscow has injected $10s of billions into Chechnya, completely rebuilding it, including the largest mosque in the region.
    btw: the RF Military Police force in Syria is largely manned by (Muslim) Chechens.

    And if you are so concerned about civilians, maybe you should look up the massacre of several hundred children at Beslan, by the same terrorists who were attempting to wreck Chechnya.

    A Syrian T-90 tank is hit by a terrorist anti-tank missile.
    The excellent T-90 defeats the anti-tank: the tank is intact.

    So what does the incompetent tanker do?
    Instead of driving the valuable equipment away, going into a protected position and destroying its attackers – he exits the protection of the tank and flees.

    It seems that you do not like to discuss the 2014 coup d’etat in Kiev, which was accomplished by the joined forces of ziocons and Banderites.

    The Kaganat of Nuland (former Ukraine) is ruled by whom?

    In Kyiv, the first meeting between the two world leaders of Jewish descent was short on accomplishments but big on symbolism. …

    Netanyahu and Zelensky, who are both leading countries engaged in uniquely modern forms of hybrid warfare, discussed business and history, and the business of history, as well as increasing military and economic cooperation

    https://www.tabletmag.com/sections/news/articles/from-ukraine-to-israel-and-back-again

    “The Arc of History Bends From Ukraine to Israel and Back Again:”

    The civil war between east-Ukrainians and west-Ukrainians has been financed by US ziocons and supported by the Jewish State, and yes, the Banderites have been used as cannon fodder for ziocons.
    “Civil War in Ukraine: another USA sponsored conflict designed to contain Russia:” http://www.softpanorama.org/Skeptics/Political_skeptic/Neocolonialism/War_is_racket/Neocolonial_wars/civil_war_in_ukraine.shtml

    As for the fraudulent holobiz story, it goes far back in time and includes the collaboration among Nazis and Zionists. At least, the Nazis had a noble goal and played honorably by the rules, as compared to zionists who have been traitors, liars, and terrorists from inception. Nothing has changed. And now they are in charge of Ukraine.

    Putin is a head of state. He must communicate with other politicians, including the ghastly Bibi who had been arming the Banderites with Israel-made rifles to use against the civilian populations in eastern Ukraine.

    the law, described by critics as an attempt to curb freedom of expression to appease conservative Russians…

    The new law, protecting the holobiz, has obvious political motifs. Unfortunately, the real consequence of this unwise move is the spreading of the poison of untruth upon the Russians.

    The RF government needs to reread Dostoyevsky (1977):

    Godless anarchism is close: our children will see it … The International [cabal] has ordered the Jewish revolution to begin in Russia … It is on its way already because we do not have a reliable rebuff against it – neither in the government nor in the society. The revolt will begin with atheism and the robbery of all national riches; they will begin to corrupt religion, destroy churches and turn them into barracks, into stalls, they will flood the world with blood, and then they themselves will be scared.

    To reject the truth is a grave sin. To punish for truth is below human dignity. That the current RF government has allowed the rabid talmudists to smear honest researchers in WWII is the worst that could have happened to the recovering Russian civilization. Those who had pushed successfully for this law are traitors to Russia.

    Posner was right that the aim of the new holobiz-promoting law was “to shut the mouths of journalists, historians and writers.”

    According to your very primitive and black/white worldview, it must be the same folks that are surrounding Putin, and that “he loves” in the photo within comment #169 above.

    Putin “said it wasn’t simple in the KGB being sympathetic to Jews,” Sharansky told the Post. “But he told me how he grew up in [a] communal apartment and there was a Jewish family there which for him were almost like relatives. He liked them very much.”

    And Putin wisely goes way out of his way to make Jews feel safe and welcome within Russia, often hosting Netanyahu at lavish social events. He doesn’t waste anybody’s time, as you do, trying to puff up anti-Semitic views with your mendacious offerings as at this blogsite. Since Zelensky came to power in Ukraine, the activities of war have slowed down considerably in the Donbas. His domestic policies have helped to vastly improve Ukraine’s infrastructure, by the completion of many new roads throughout the country, You can leave your stupid anti-Jewish tropes in the closet, where they belong – indeed, “Mazel Tov” to you and Mr. Putin as well.

    Read the two statements carefully: e.g. the denial of Nazi crimes and distortion of the Soviet Union’s role in the World War Two a criminal offence

    There is a concerted effort in the GloboWest/NATO to first minimize, then entirely erase SU’s heroic – almost singular – role in defeating the Nazi invaders. Russian/Slavic peoples* paid a horrific price to finally defeat the genocidal Nazi menace, who fully intended to ethnically cleanse and exterminate all Slavic peoples west of the Urals, and populate those rich fertile lands with Germanic peoples.

    People of RF still strongly remember their grandfathers/fathers who gave their lives in WW2.
    [Russia: Millions take part in Immortal Regiment marches across the country]

    Russian leaders are quite aware of this vile effort by GloboWest, and are rightfully furious. And hence the law. They can’t really expect to criticize the GloboWest/NATO for erasing SU’s crucial role in WW2, while allowing the SorosaAgent NGO’s and other whored ‘Russians’ (sic) to do inside RF what their masters are doing outside RF.

    By the same token, they can’t pass a law that punishes the deniers of Nazi crimes, and then pretend the Jewish holocaust did not happen. Or that Nazis did not exterminate x number of Christian Polish people, for example. And many others. It is not RF’s problem that Jews have weaponized and monetized the holocaust.

    How did Biden “gift” Putin by extending START???? Nuclear proliferation is a curse to all the earth. Extending START benefits the whole globe – not just Putin. The UN Security Council permanent members all have missiles that can hit any country on earth. They have enough nuke firepower to basically destroy any nation. The US and Russia both have enough nukes to basically destroy the globe. That is no gift to Putin. It’s common sense. Not everything is a conspiracy.

    The idea that North Korea is a province of China is absolute nonsense. First off the Kim clan were Soviet allies and did not like China. Even in the Korean War – China only got involved because crazy McCarthy thought he could bully China and cross the Yalu River… Had they not done that – there would be no North and South Korea today…
    Even the issue of nukes – the idea that China wants to dangle a nuclear North Korea as bait is nonsense. North Korea’s nukes do nothing to help China. China has its own nuclear capabilities. It’s like saying the US would use Canada getting nukes to scare Russia.

    Do you know why this latest Kim had his own brother killed??? That brother was living in China. Kim waited until he got to Malaysia to kill him. Why did he have him killed? The suspicion was China and South Korea were working together to have him installed as the new leader. Province of China?? Not at all. It was only after that assassination that Kim got an audience to meet with Xi.

    To make it even clearer, it was the “little green men” that Putler sent into Ukrainian territories and initiated the anschluss of Crimea that started the antagonism between Ukraine and Russia. Likewise, Donbas separatism was also at its core a Kremlin based intervention in another Ukrainian territory. It’s normal for any country to try and ward off any invasions of its territories by another entity. Russia has only itself to blame for the mess that its been in since 2014.

    1. Putin did alot from beginning of his rulling. Chechen war, internal order, got SOME oligarchs out of our treasures, built new army .. etc.
    The problem is – he kept most oligarchs in place, just slightly limited them economically and much more politically. He gave them example – Khodorkovsky and some more. But I beleive there’s some kind of a contract between him and oligarchs – he guard their money, they do not put their long noses in foreign policy. To keep the status quo he needs to have strong state and he did it.

    2. After that he keeps things in that swamp intact – huge corruption (it’s the only point everybody agree with Navalny), his model of state prevents anybody except his apointee get into power. The MSM are completely controlled, the courts are the parody to justice. He surrounded himself with members of 5th, liberastic columns, his goverment is absolutely non-people oriented, it defends oligarchs and state, not people. When they are buying ships and footbal teams, in central TV they askin people to donate for saving ill children. He’s got the anti-national pension reform.
    He established lots of anti-nationl law, preventing freedom of speaches and demonstrations.
    He just raped the constitution just to continue ruling.

    This is not all, but I think is enough for beginning. We do appreciate what he’s done, but now it’s time for him to go since we see he’s not going to change. The Crimea was a great achievement of his, for which I’ll be ever grateful for him, but life goes on and reqire new leaders with priority on his/her people, not friendly oligarchs.

    It was the lawless act of Khrushchev to grant Crimea to Ukraine in violation of the USSR Constitution. Also, read the history of the Russian wars for Crimea.

    Crimea is waaaay heavily Russian ethnic and had been administratively transferred to Ukraine SSR, in 1954 by Ukrainian born Nikita Sergeyovich Khrushchev.

    Thousands of gallons of Russian blood were shed by Russian soldiers to wrest it from the slave-taking Tatars during the reign of Cathrine the Great; by the USSR against the Nazi invasion and in between times against the Rottenchild/City of London dominated British and French governments in the Crimean War.

    That was an invasion by outside powers, much like Vicious Nudelman passing out cookies and billion$ of American taxpayer dollars to overthrow the legitimate, elected government in Kiev and replace it with the Khazarian Mafiya under Porkyshenko and now latterly, Zelensky.

    The “outside sponsored aggression” in Ukraine was done first and foremost by zionists.

    The Kaganat of Nuland (former Ukraine) is a rotten fruit of the collaborative efforts among zionists and banderites (both local and Canadian). https://thesaker.is/the-destructive-plan-behind-the-biden-russia-agenda/

    In trying to determine what the new Biden Administration and the US intelligence agencies have in store towards Russia, the best indication is the prominent role being given to Victoria Nuland, the person who ran the political side of the US coup d’etat in Ukraine in 2013-14. … Her husband, Robert Kagan is a notorious Washington neocon [and rabid zionist].

    In 2016, Nuland became a Senior Counselor at the Albright Stonebridge Group, headed by Madeline Albright (a major war criminal) who is also chairman of the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) affiliate, National Democratic Institute. Nuland also joined the Board of the NED, keeping in close contact with NED regime change operations.

    … Nuland worked closely with Vice President Joe Biden to put into power Arseniy Yatsenyuk… Founder of the private intelligence group Stratfor, George Friedman, in an interview just after the February 2014 coup in Kiev, called it “the most blatant coup in (US) history.”

    Sure. Badnerites are the best friend of Zionists.

    The Jewish State simply forgives Banderites some petty transgressions like the glorification of Nazis, for which any decent citizens of Germany and France will be sent to prison in no time: https://d3n8a8pro7vhmx.cloudfront.net/progressalberta/pages/2693/attachments/original/1594062960/Per_Anders_Rudling_-_Nationalist_Monuments_in_Canada.pdf?159406296

    In October 2017, a political controversy erupted, as the Russian embassy in Ottawa posted a number of images on its twitter account… Three images of memorials to Waffen-SS veterans, a prominent Nazi collaborator, and ultranationalist insurgents were accompanied by the comment ‘There are monuments to Nazi collaborators in Canada and nobody is doing anything about it’. The message was followed by the hash tags ‘#NeverForget #Holocaust #WorldWar2’

    You see, the Kagans are very good at using Banderites (on both continents) as cannon fodder for a Zionist goal to subjugate all Amaleks including Russia.

    “Forgiveness of sins is one of the finer elements…”

    Sounds rather sanctimonious in the context of the holocoastians’ aggressive prosecution of decent people everywhere but not the useful self-proclaimed neo-Nazis – the Banderites:

    “Political Dissident Ursula Haverbeck Sent Back to Prison; May Become Oldest Female Inmate In the World:” https://www.unz.com/estriker/germany-political-dissident-ursula-haverbeck-sent-back-to-prison-may-become-oldest-female-inmate-in-the-world/

    “Why Holocaust Revisionism?” https://www.unz.com/pub/jhr__why-holocaust-revisionism/

    It should be emphasized that men and women who have dedicated themselves to determining and spreading the truth about the Holocaust are anything but Nazis or unconditional apologists for Germany’s National Socialist regime. In fact, Holocaust Revisionists neither subscribe to nor represent a fixed ideology.

    … [the] intelligent, concerned Americans — and people everywhere — owe the Holocaust Revisionists a fair hearing.

    As compared to the intelligent and unconcerned regime in Kiev:

    on January 16, amendments to the so-called “movny” law entered into force in Ukraine, which restrict the use of the Russian language in everyday life – in shops, at the post office, in the healthcare system, etc.

    Perhaps, it is time to learn Yiddish, Mr. Hack.

    What serious militaries has the Israeli system faced? And the US buying the system is politics. Do you think they would ask Russia – “hey will you sell us your system”?

    We can argue how much of a threat Hezbolla is – Israelis certainly seem to take them seriously – but the point is, Israeli defenses frequently deal with conditions of simultaneous multiple launches at rather short ranges in actual live action, not simulated exercises. No other air defense system in the world has seen as much combat use since the days of Russian SA-2.

    S-400 appears very capable on paper but it has nowhere near the same real world experience to back it up.

    As for Americans – no they would not ask Russia, but they could stick to their home-grown systems. In fact, they usually do and it is relatively rare for Americans to buy weapons from overseas. Their decision to buy Iron Dome could be in some part political, but it can also be seen as an admission that their own Patriot system is far behind cutting edge by now.

    …the genuine, experienced and downright awesome people, like Nadiya Savchenko (awesome for her piloting skill and principles) are cut out from the election. The Jewish kabal in charge of Ukraine saw Nadiya Savchenko as such a public relations threat to their regime that they arrested her on the 22nd of March 2018, not long after she had declared her intention to stand for the 2019 Presidential elections.

    Guess this was too much for zionists:

    Savchenko claimed that “people now lawmakers” were involved with the deadly sniper shootings during the 2014 Ukrainian Revolution and that the government that came to power after the 2014 Ukrainian Revolution did not want to fully investigate these shootings.

    The Washington Post (US):

    Support for joining Russia remains very high (86 percent in 2014 and 82 percent in 2019) — and is especially high among ethnic Russians and Ukrainians. A key change since 2014 has been a significant increase in support by Tatars, a Turkic Muslim population that makes up about 12 percent of the Crimean population. In 2014, only 39 percent of this group viewed joining Russia as a positive move, but this figure rose to 58 percent in 2019.

    Thanks for the compliment. Unfortunately many get their news from compromised media or “think tanks” for the MIC.

    As to the idea of “gift to China”… Never say never – but it’s as close to never as could be that China would build an arsenal to match Russia and the US as it is EXTREMELY expensive to maintain so many nukes – which is impractical since you can never use them all because we’d all be dead if you did. In fact when asked about the treaty – China’s line to the US was to paraphrase “sure – if you plan to bring your arsenal all the way down to ours”.
    Rumor has it China has enough material for 1000 war heads…. But I highly doubt it ever goes that high. Even if it did – that’s still nowhere close to the big 2. Info says it has 300…. Personally I doubt it goes over 500.
