Andrei Martyanov: They are terrified when seeing this banner
Please visit Andrei’s website: https://smoothiex12.blogspot.com/
This is a great episode from Andrei but I differ on just one subject. That subject is China.
Personally, I think China is showing some significant weakness to the world in some dangerous ways for both itself and Russia.
First, I think China has really shown its true self in the lockdown in its big mega city. Really, it looks awful to the world and demonstrates the complete lack of ANY form of individual rights in that country. It also shows that the country has no interest in using alternative treatments and its own vaccine was a failure. They only thing they know is lockdown. Brutally.
Second, Chinese economic elites are showing a real lack of courage in not wanting to use Union Pay in Russia because of sanctions fear. This shows the West a real weakness that can be exploited.
China is just to interested in becoming the big economic power of the world and sooner or later they will be forced into the bang bang power game as the US will exploit their greed.
Russia better beware. China may not be all that reliable as a “friend” when the push comes to bucks.
It will soon be time for China to suit up and get it on. Will they? Or will they let Russia do all the dying for them.
China could double cross Russia in a tragic way, but it knows it’s the next (and until February) the bigger target. It’s also more constrained by financial connections to the west.
A different explanation about the lockdown in Shanghai could be that it is effectively sanctions on the west. The port is a significant launch point for N. America and will snarl a lot of essential goods for a long time. Shanghai is also pretty western friendly and local government has a lot of leeway and responsibility. The blame from the population in China when things go wrong is usually pointed at local government. There may be domestic politics at play (there may also be western propaganda at play).
There’s much more China could do, but perhaps it’s not necessary and not time yet. The Sino-Russian bloc is trying to display rationality and maturity to the world rather than the western psychosis.
China is not stupid enough to do what Russia did. Chinese are more patient, and are getting stronger every year.
Russia, on the other hand, is in for some very hard years and risks losing everything it spent last 20 years building. And much more.
Ordinary Russians (and Ukrainians) are paying the price for their leaders’ deficiencies. Meanwhile, all these pro Russian bloggers (Andrei, the other Andrei (Saker), Larry, Scott Ritter, McGregor etc) are sitting pretty in the USA.
Some are probably making good money off of their numerous appearances on various media.
@ZM: We’re ALL in for hard times. But the Empire of Lies more than others. And Russia will have a lot to do with that.
“China is not stupid enough to do what Russia did. Chinese are more patient…”
China just did what Russia did …in Hong Kong and Myanmar over the last to years:
Why is Ukraine the West’s Fault? Featuring John Mearsheimer
“they (Putin & Xi) think they are in the crosshairs, and you know what? …they are in the crosshairs, because our basic strategy is to topple regimes all over the world, not because we like democracy but because we believe that whoever gets elected will be pro-Western…”
And George Soros & Lynsey Graham just called for the assassination’s of Putin & Xi, so Mearsheimer is telling it like it is.
And once the US gets a Democracy installed, it won’t be holding free elections:
2006 Audio Emerges of Hillary Clinton Proposing Rigging Palestine Election
Chomsky recalls being taken aback that “anyone could support the idea—offered by a national political leader, no less—that the U.S. should be in the business of fixing foreign elections.”
And who pays the price? Each time a US Color Revolution or regime change operation fails, the US goes home to play again leaving those who it colluded, with through NGO/CIA cut outs like NED/Soros, to pay the price. Had the US not meddled in Hong Kong, with the intent of using it a a jumping off point for a mainland Color Revolution. they would not have been incorporated into mainland China until 2047. Ditto for Myanmar. And Ukraine is an extension of the US “border nation strategy” aimed at toppling China & Russia. (Belarus in 2020 & Kazakhstan in 2021).
And then you have: Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Egypt, Turkey & Pakistan, along with John Bolton calling for the “Libya Option” in North Korea. Here is a primer on that, also gone over by Mearsheimer:
General Wesley Clark tells Democracy Now of the United States’ plan to topple 7 governments in 5 years:
And here is how the United States treated Rodrigo Duterte, the democratically elected president of the Philippines:
“If I survive the CIA, I have five more years to go.” (quote @ t = 10:52)
How does any world leader sleep well at night???
Ordinary people around the world are paying the price for the United States’ “rules based international order” and its “faux promotion of democracy”. Because each time the United States tampers in the politics and elections of other countries the internet and governments around the world become less and less free. Do you think China, even if it wanted to, would experiment with democracy, knowing that Soros/ NED and the US Intelligence Community (along with their big tech and media allies) would have the whole experiment subverted in less than 10 years?
That is not some conspiracy theory, it is all laid out by John Mearsheimer from the University of Chicago and if you can’t see it, then you must be trapped in the US corporate media bubble. The entire world sees what the United States is doing and we have had enough!
US corporations and their uniformed citizens are sitting pretty in the USA, and some are probably making good money off of their stock portfolios and dividends, at the expense of the rest of the world.
I think you nailed it… (or maybe the Chinese are doing what they are doing out of stupidity? not!)
America Has Lost The Trade War With China, And The Real Pain Has Yet To Begin
It doesn’t take much to hang up US production, just one missing item can do it. So much stuff is sourced through China they can affect all supply chains.
I have a little manufacturing company and I am seeing this in supply lines. I sent an order to China for printed circuit boards (US prices are astronomical because of various factors). They don’t get back for a week, then they quote, then I send money, then they sit on it, then I call and they say they are having problems with some process… etc. But all the suppliers are like this, it is not an isolated incident. They are sandbagging.
As prices rise the Chinese manufacturers take bigger profits so the slowdown effects on that end are mitigated.
A straight US embargo would end up as a WTO dispute, but this way the US can say nothing. Furthermore, notice the increasing number of port and factory closures as the US ratchets up sanctions on Russia. Quite a coincidence. :)
Can’t agree on this. First, there is a hudge difference between what western MSM say that China did and what China really did in terms of lockdown. The West loves to portray China as a totalitarian State with no individual rights but this is only to dissimulate the West’s own totalitarian tendencies. In China the lockdowns were punctual and short-lived and they really helped preventing the virus from spreading. In the West it just seemed like the goal of every lockdown was to make it last as long as possible and to be as useless as possible, while weakening the economy and suppressing basic rights. In China you didn’t at any time need to be vaccinated against Covid to enter any public place, be it a school, a university, a bar, a restaurant, a night club, the subway or anything else. The Chinese vax was a hudge success, if only because it prevented millions/billions of Chinese and other World citizens from taking the experimental mRNA-jabs produced by Western Big Pharma. The Chinese vax might be ineffective but at least it is harmless. The Western vaxes are at least as useless but they happen to be poisonous in addition to that.
With all due respect, I think your comment is impulsive, perhaps rash. If you voted for Biden or Trump, you are short-sighted, you believe that Christianity is all the truth there is. So, somehow you believe that China arrived at this stage by chance. You would be mistaken in this case. The partnership of China and Russia is an honest one, and Russia is winning in all things. She knows that the planet will follow a new historical flow or there will be world war 3. That simple. You people in the West cannot UNDERSTAND this. And that’s why Saker is sick, because he realized that the west has no cure!!!
China is already working on a separate payment system along with Russia and EAEU states. Read interviews of Sergei Glazyev on this blog within this month
The tragic Sino-Soviet Split that followed de-Stalinization undermined the Non-Aligned movement and, concomitantly, the progress then being made by nations struggling to emerge from neo-colonialism. Today that breach has been repaired within the context of a critically weakened US hegemony that is in terminal decline. The renewal of the China-Russia strategic partnership leverages the peoples and nations of four continents with unprecedented opportunities for exercising their sovereignty in the new multipolar world.
Too much nonsense to bother unpicking.
Simply no understanding of the relationship between Russia and China.
Dr. John Campbell (look him up on YouTube) recently put out a video showing China’s COVID vaccines’ efficacy. First dosage was inferior to others; Second dosage efficacy started to climb up, but still inferior to others; the Booster, or “third dose,” resulted in superior outcomes to others. Campbell is totally skeptical of China, but to his credit he’ll stick with data no matter what comes of it. He reported that the data also shows that it’s the older age group that are most benefited but that this age group is least vaccinated. Also says, and I agree, that the lockdowns are non-nonsensical for stopping COVID: China is allowing flights in and out, in which case there’s ZERO chance of stopping COVID; and even if closed down there’s still ZERO chance.
My hypotheses as to why the lockdowns is that this provides an excuse to drastically cut down exports, that this is a hidden way of waging economic warfare on the US. Whether true or not the results appear to be the same.
“First, I think China has really shown its true self in the lockdown in its big mega city. Really, it looks awful to the world and demonstrates the complete lack of ANY form of individual rights in that country. It also shows that the country has no interest in using alternative treatments and its own vaccine was a failure. They only thing they know is lockdown. Brutally.”
So-called “Individual Rights” has about as much moral authority as “Democracy and Freedom.”
They are all bullshit Western-spawned ideologies–and part of the false religion called Western Values and Liberal Democracy in general.
Western citizens–and Americans in particular–are just as arrogant and delusional as their elites. They all love running their mouth about their false values and sitting in moral judgement of other nations–all the while presuming to speak for the entire world.
If that sounds familiar, it should be.
You can hear Joe Biden and Antony Blinken also proselytize about “individual rights” in other countries just the same as these anti-Covid lockdown “activists” in America or the West–even as over 1 million people in the USA and West have needlessly died from Covid thanks to their pathetic mitigation policies.
What is it that Boris Johnson famously said? “No more lockdowns. Let the bodies pile high in their thousands!”
That is the true essence of Western/American freedom and individual rights in a nutshell: the freedom and right to die for the interests of capitalism.
In short, America and the West are a death cult disguised behind the mask of rights and freedom–a death cult from Main Street, USA to Wall Street alike.

The misunderstood—and misrepresented—Zero COVID policy in China
You are obviously not Russian , but you are one of those many seeking a way out for your corrupt West. China is not interested in any of the things that you say.it is in your DNA that you see those things, when the west is so clearly losing. Your kind hoping to divide Russia from China, as your governments are trying to do, over and over again.
What you “Western’ers do not seem to understand is that China can tear your head off, and so can Russia alone. Unlike your rulers, China has never abandoned anyone, let alone a friend. But must I list all those that your superpower has abandoned or fell out with?
Rightfully, China makes honest,decent money out of the West, but the ignorant bullying West cannot compete,so ban Huawei, tariffs and all else, and what happens? It comes back to bite us here in the self proclaimed “multicultural West”. How silly that seems to the coloured students fleeing from Ukraine and the racism that they have put up with, telling their respective countries of the hatred and racism they have had to endure. The real Western racism has been exposed to the entire world, and they do not have a clue that they let the cat outta the bag.
Gutteres was brought in to find a way to release the foreign mercenaries, after Macron repeatedly asked. Russia continues to hammer the Donbass area and we will see. Civilians in a steel plant? How low can America get?
Maybe the families soonish who might realise many ukrops are being killed if they bothered to to see the I D ‘s being posted on especially various telegram sites—-easier if they are refugees maybe with unfettered internet access in other countries….might start to raise a hullabaloo against Z of his pointless bluff and bluster twisted refusal to truly negotiate ……….one hopes?
The image Brother Martyanov projects… would it be possible to say the url for that?
The lecture he provides, which seems entirely accurate to me at first impression, also seems to be pregnant with implications…I want to listen again. For example, he characterizes the “west” as fascist/nazi in a sort of default way. Given this, (an assumption with which I do not quibble) – given this, the question arises, whither the west? Some may posit that the fate of west is ketosis, like Steinbeck’s dynamo in “The Moon is Down”…they west as dynamo is easy to wreck, if you know how. …. And Then…?? What?
Like I said. I want to listen again. And save the wonderful image.
And I very much would like a transcript. I’m imagine many would also.
Mr P, here’s one, thanks to Larch’s disqus:
Note the faint image of Stalingrad’s “The Motherland Calls” in the background. Of course this city was renamed to Volgograd. A lasting name change?
Yes, when Martyanov contemplates the Metaphysical it is indeed pregnant with implications. Reminds of USSR recruiting the Orthodox Church during Act II. It was a time to plant flags on enemy citadels. The hapless west is even more doomed today but the deluded nazis are the last to get the memo.
Many thanks for image source….makie nice screensaver! (I was tired of the MacBeth-Whohan cartoon)
Speaking of Church> Perhaps many are unaware that the monks on Mt Athos … well, here’s a quote> “The Abbots of Mount Athos insisted that President V V Putin stand where the Emperor of New Rome stood; they’re right. As a man, Putin is a truly devout Orthodox believer; as a statesman, Vladimir Vladimirovich devotes himself to the security (not physical expansion) of his country. He’s the head of the most powerful Orthodox country. By this, they sent out a powerful message. The Athonite Fathers know what sort of man they look at… the Defender of Holy Orthodoxy.” ( https://02varvara.wordpress.com/tag/mount-athos/ )
I thought at the time that this event was signal, an echo from the future, if we may so say. I have previously said that the global conflict was in denouement, already had an outcome…pretnear “Th’ bar eats you”, as in which side God’s on.
I again note that the Policy set announced in December ( https://mid.ru/ru/foreign_policy/rso/nato/1790818/?lang=en ) are realistic and practical only with a foundational change in west, “revolution” in the more awful sense. Turning AZE in on itself is a deadly strategy, and then what? It seems to me that in long-term geopolitical reality both China and Russia need a viable non-fascist western establishment, this seems necessary for stability of the echo of FRD’s triumvirate ideas. I remember OBOR plans Bering Strait railroad tunnel and North-south to Terra Del Fuego … consider prerequisite condition.
H Turner was tonight a real hoot!
I saw a video wherein Margarita Simonyan opined that “it” will go nuke. Classic lady, she lived in US and knows a lot. Wish I disagreed.
I would just counter-observe that China, like Russia, plays a very patient deep game with a long historical view on things, but at this point they know who the arch-enemy is, hence their rather tight embrace of Russia as an ally. I suspect that when they finally go at Taiwan, and they will, it will be as much of a shock for the Americans as were Chinese armies pouring across the Yalu in North Korea in October 1950.
Recall MacArthur’s dismissal in December of that year after comments like this (posthumous 1964):
“I could have won the war in Korea in a maximum of 10 days…. I would have dropped between 30 and 50 atomic bombs on his air bases and other depots strung across the neck of Manchuria….
Enter the new MacArthurites on steroids in the neocon belt in Washington. They are rabid and do not seem to understand the actual disparity of forces, and the fact that Putin does not bluff.
Very dangerous times we live in my friends.
The commentary made me think about this strange development: in WWII, USSR did the heavy lifting in defeating the nazis, suffering greatly in the process, yet most of the post-WWII benefits accrued to the USA. Not affected by the destruction, it had the space to build an entire, complex system of dominating the world.
Not exactly historical justice.
Are we now at the beginning of a point in history, when Russia can start reaping at least some of the benefits of that hard-won history? Not to dominate, but to have a more peaceful world for itself and all the rest of us.
That would remedy the injustice.
Unfortunately, the other option may be to re-fight WWII – the forces of light vs forces of darkness. With an uncertain outcome.
«in WWII, USSR did the heavy lifting in defeating the nazis, suffering greatly in the process, yet most of the post-WWII benefits accrued to the USA.»
The german and japanese militaries defeated the french, english, russian etc. militaries, and would had also had to surrender having run out of money and supplies. The USA “lend-lease” and financial support is what defeated the Axis.
«Nonetheless, John Maynard Keynes, the chief economic advisor to the new Labour Government, warned ministers in August 1945 that Britain’s world role was a burden which ‘… there is no reasonable expectation of our being able to carry …’ As he pointed out, the entire British war effort, including all her overseas military commitments, had only been made possible by American subsidies under the Lend-Lease programme.»
«From as early as August 1941 – just two months after the Nazi invasion of the USSR – American convoy ships supplied the Soviets with what would eventually amount to more than 14,000 airplanes, 44,000 jeeps, 375,000 trucks, 8,000 tractors and 12,000 tanks. Not to mention 1.5 million blankets, 15 million pairs of army boots, 2.6 million tons of petroleum products and 4.4 million tons of food supplies.
“The Americans gave us so many goods without which we wouldn’t have been able to form our reserves and continue the war”, admitted Georgy Zhukov, one of the Soviet Union’s most famous WWII generals.»
The real danger is perhaps that the US has always realized that they will never be able to defeat the Soviet/Russian juggernaut in a NATO/Russian contest. The assumption was always that they would be defeated and have to resort to nuclear weapons.
I was stationed in Germany in the early/mid-1970s. NATO came through with a team to bring some reality to a contest between the two.
“NATO only has enough ammunition for three days of air-to-air combat. Does this really matter? Given the existence of BVR munitions, 50% of NATO pilots will be killed on the first day of combat.” I’m sure that didn’t sit well with the USAF pilots.
“Look at this Soviet tank. You can change the treads on this tank in 30 minutes in the field. US tanks need to be sent back to the depot to change the treads. Also, notice the much lower profile on the Soviet tank. The driver can’t be more than 5′ 4” to do his job. But the low profile means that the Soviet tanks can’t raise the gun very far. Their solution: attach logs to the back of the tank. If in the “hull down” position, climb on the logs to raise the gun to its optimum elevation. All very practical and cheap to implement.”
“The plan is to fall back to behind the Rhine River and reconstitute for a counter-attack. If that proves impossible, NATO will go nuclear.”
Although I was in an Air Force unit, we were denied access to weapons. Evidently, too many US Army personnel were going “postal” and shooting up their units. The weapons were locked in bunkers until the “balloon went up”. I was stationed in Germany for four years and never once touched a weapon.
I had a close friend in the Luftwaffe. I spent a lot of time in the field with the Luftwaffe and would rate them as being 5X more capable than the USAF. We had a lot more “toys”, but they understood war. They were also proud of the fact that their uniforms were identical to the “Hermann Goring” division in WWII.
One day my friend mentioned that the Luftwaffe had learned that, if the “balloon went up”, the US was planning to blow the bridges before the German forces had crossed. I wasn’t surprised. I was able to compare the difference between their unit’s tactical plan and ours. The German unit’s plan was 1/4″ thick … and the USAF plan was 2″ thick. In short, the USAF plan was incomprehensible.
I was once in an operation involving combined operations between the USAF and French air forces. We couldn’t communicate. To solve this problem, we found a Luftwaffe officer who spoke English, French, and German. The French fighters would send us their positions in French. The German would translate that into English … and we would send the next command and control message to the French fighter through the German officer. [?]
Can NATO fight a war under these conditions? Bring in the fact that NATO now includes 30 countries with 30 different languages and we are faced with a “Tower of Babel”! Is it realistic to expect that all of the soldiers and airmen from 30 different countries speak English? This is not a realistic assumption.
A funny story: on REFORGER, we send a supply truck to our deployed unit in Munich. It should have been a one-day round trip. But the airman disappeared for three days! He finally returned and said he couldn’t find “Munich”. He searched and search and slept in his truck but all he found was someplace called “Munchen” … so he decided to go back home. Extrapolate these tidbits from the unit level to the national headquarters to the NATO headquarters and chaos reigns.
The point is that there is no such thing as a “combined NATO” operation. You have a “grab bag” of countries going to war with different weapons, different operational assumptions, different communication equipment, and communicating in different languages. The prospect of successful combined operations in this environment is nil.
All of the above point to the fact that NATO is nothing more than a public relations stunt.
P.S. I’ve been very charitable regarding my experiences with REFORGER exercises designed to counter a Soviet attack. But one more story about the low quality of our leadership. The USAF general in charge inspected our unit. He congratulated us on pitching our tents and equipment in the open with perfect symmetry. Ouch! Our entire unit could have been taken out with one staffing pass. Our tents should have been in the treeline with our tactical radar camouflaged on the tree line. These idiots were not approachable, accessible, or rational. It was hopeless!
And this was back in the days when the US military had a permanent footprint in Germany to train and interoperate on combined operations with other NATO forces. Today, in a crisis, the US would deploy the 101st Airborne and other units with soldiers who had never been out of the country nor operated with foreign militaries on combined operations. I can anticipate the outcome.
This is an outstandingly detailed post, full of detail and experience. I hope you will post again in the future.
GoDark, your experiences ring true 20 years ago. Having served two SFOR tours with NATO, I became accustomed to the ideal “NATO is a committee,” with, as you keenly recalled, a great deal of lag time between command decision interpretations…more than enough to be exploited quickly in today’s real-time battlespace.
“All of the above point to the fact that NATO is nothing more than a public relations stunt.”
Nato is a Military-Industrial-Political complex FUD scam — follow the $$$’s.
The PR is just part of the cover story etc.
It does not stand the “hot lead” test unless it is against some minor 3rd-world nation that can be pillaged (e.g., Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, etc).
The main problem for them now is they have believed their own BS about framing Russia as a backward 3rd-world entitiy. Now the imaginary word-smith (part of the complex) collapses to zero and only the real kinetic counts.
The cretins that let these retards in the EU rule them are the real issue. But without critical education what can be expected except emotional hysteria in the drama dept.
When peak outrage arrives then it is going to get ugly in cafe-latte-land.
The metaphysics of the west is the total technization of the human being. Mickey Mouse is the symbol. Communism and fascism are in essence liberal. Hitler, in one of his play act rants at Obersalzberg , ~ ~complained~ about what a decadent ideal Mickey Mouse was. He banned the cartoon at his Third Reich, but of course reserved himself the right to watch the cute rat`s show. He was right about it being an ~ideal~ though. The uniformization through specimization is the surest way in which the human is technicized (the mouse is the animal , as it is positioned by technology today, that serves technical manipulation the best). Soviet communism could only stray behind Mickey Mouse. It`s ~ideal~(soviet communism) is uniformization through nivelation. It hinders the tecnhization, in other words, by staying too faithful to idealistic metaphysics, not knowing that this idealistic metaphysics (the communized selfless soviet man –or on another note the teutonic blue eyed ruthless heroic man) is far surpassed by the technicized ~man~ of liberalism. The aimlessness , which is one of the necessary consequences of european global nihilism, is better instituted by american liberalism. Identity politics is the theory of that . It divides ~people~ into specimens, biologically conditioned organisms endowed with ~freedom and democracy (rights), and by that achieves uniformization. It is uniformization through sheer technization, and not some otherworldy ideal, that`s why it has won in the past century. LGBT is the follow up to Mickey Mouse. There is no determination of ~nature~ that technics cannot alter and manipulate. The laboratories which america cultivates around the world are not a deviation from liberal ~principles~ (it has none). It is the total drive to control the human material on the planet. Even China is liberal, albeit reluctantly, because it is communist, and communism is liberal. Uniformization of the human, the ~final solution~, may lead of course to the extermination of it, since nature, after all, cannot be ~canceled~. This decade will see this decision play out. That is what I had to say about the metaphysics of the ~west~. Read Fukuyama`s two evangîles of technization of the human material : ~Our Post Human Future~, and ~The End of History and the Last Man~ and it will shed some light on the issue. Aimlessness and total tecnnicization of man through genetics and identity politics is the aim of liberalism.. Global mass extinction and genocide is the necessary outcome.
I think I can summarize for you: Zionists want world government, and they like artificial things, they want women to be masculine, Macron to be feminine married to his own intellectual feminist mother. This is very far from reality. Eurasia is very important in the history of humanity, they are terrestrial humanity. The planet is returning to the terrestrial peoples, to Eurasia.
Btw, when I say liberalism doesn`t have principles, it`s not a critique. Nietzsche, which thought the logics of metaphysical nihilism, already found that principles are just positions of power, and so not principles at all, but maxims. Liberalism achieves the institution of aimlessness, and so it has to get rid of principles as binding forces for possible aims, and instead of it place maximum technicization. That, by the way, is also what China does. So what about Russia? Is it drifting to another constelation?
To quote philosophers is to give America credit,for it is not what we see. America is completely controlled by a handful of Zionists,and is probably the most stupid nation on this entire planet.
For many who still believe in your self- called exceptionialism,can you tell me why you have millions homeless, drug addiction, crime on crime, blacks against blacks, racist attacks against all coloured people and so much more. Infrastructure rotting and yet billions for your tool against this world: military but even that is a pipe dream designed for domestic consumption.
There was a plan to take over the middle east, restrict the flow of oil to Asia, and make your bosses in Israel, rulers of all Muslim nations. That failed.
You hastily withdrew from Afghanistan, fully believing that your paid prop-up army would hold out for your safe evacuation. You left your NATO allies in limbo, and they still love you. So much for White racism and the coloured people see you for what you are.
There is a lot more to this story, and China does not need to make a move at this time. But they will, and mark my words.
Anglo-American plans for never-ending “Great War” were thwarted when the October Revolution pulled Russia out, effectively ending it. This is the origin of modern “western” visceral hatred of Russia and its people. War, i.e., perpetual war is imperialism’s only raison d’être. In the ashes of Weimar Germany, the Anglo-Americans created out of exhumed corpses of junkers and freebooters a frankenstein that called itself the Third Reich. Red Army and Russian people ended imperialism’s second world war by winning it, much to the chagrin of USA, Inc. Fast-forward 75 years to the new, improved Fourth Reich. The dogs of Europe have returned to their vomit in a sado-masochistic orgy of groveling, jackboot-licking, and shilling for Nazis to the tune of “Amerika Amerika über Alles”.
Thanks ZAndrei as always BUT tell me how I can support you without resorting to Paypal profiteering!!!!!
Time to give NATO a very bloody nose. Otherwise these sick bastards will steadily increase provocations, All NATO assets in Poland and Romania must disband or will receive a visit from Mr Kinzhal.
What’s not to understand here? A statement of intent is the only deterrent. The obliteration of the MDS in Romania would stop ideas of grandeur in that Nazi US proxy shithole.
Guertes took VVPs offer back to Brussels. They were given a choice. They are in discussions atm. Russia has supplied the new map of the region. Most of the details have been covered as to who gets what.
The choices: Accept the new map, take it or leave it. Or Russia will take the entire area of 404.
The main EU issue, do they want Russian troops in Paris looking across the channel at a smoldering London……oh, to live to see the day…Irish Eyes Are Smiling.
Rod Steiger is looking good these days.
Exercise Hedgehog next month will involve the Royal Welsh battlegroup and the Royal Tank Regiment, with exercises planned on the Estonia/Latvia border alongside 18,000 Nato troops.
Hedgehog, the biggest military exercise in Estonia, takes place every four years and will involve a range of units including light and airborne forces, helicopters, armoured forces, artillery and air defence.
Exercises alongside American troops are also taking place in Poland.
hmmm…maybe back up if -when Poland does move into the Ukraine????????
A partial solution to the current situation is for some border rearrangements –
Poland returns East Prussia to Germany (stolen in 1945).
Ukraine returns western Ukraine back to Poland (taken in 1945)
Doing this means all the radical Azos people in western Ukraine are kicked out of Ukraine and become Poland’s problem. As Poland likes this UKN conflict so much they ought to like them.
And Germany is happy.
There would be no public support for a war against Russia in the West so this whole thing will fail.
Not in US UK Germany France Holland Italy Canada Aust NZ etc…
Any attempt at conscription for that purpose is armyunits would turn on their national govts.
Russian are certainly not sub-humans as has been shown by their victory in WW2 and strength during cold War and to now with the current situation.
The average Russian may not be as polished as those in the West but it takes all types to make a world.
Although given the demise of the average Joe in US the average Russian often looks a lot better – smarter and more alert. And appears more sensible.
Russia has seen to it its people are properly educated even since 1991 and there are few corruptive distractions like in the US.
China and India and the west are still buying oil and gas. Noone can dispense with it yet.
Thank you Andrei, I love the plain language you use. With respect to China and Russia I would say their relationship is rock solid with the Western Press trying to insinuate there are problems. Not long ago A Chinese Minister said there was no ceiling as to the support China and Russia have for each other. I don’t think for one minute that President Putin would have taken any military action without first discussing it with Xi JingPin. China are right behind Russia here. The SCO and other organisations to which China belong are testament to this. The Western MSM think they can shape political thinking and yes, the complete and utter idiots that the West call our Leaders today are worse than idiots and probably do just act on what the MSM tell them to do because, as Alex Christofoulos said on the Duran, Von der Lyen et al seem to be approaching this in terms of Western Propaganda and ‘photo opportunities’ rather than in a properly strategic context. You can see that by the fact the West and NATO are floundering here, really floundering, because they have no strategy, they were caught completely unawares and don’t have, quite frankly, the military intelligence to make proper, informed decisions. Their response is entirely reactive and hysterical, over the top hysterical and hysteria does not make good decision making. China and Russia are experts in strategy. They tell the truth. They respect International Law and they have an extremely close relationship. So what you have is the calm, collected, truthful view of China and Russia and the SCO of which India is a member and Iran also against the mass spectrum hysteria of NATO and the West. Whilst the West grabs photo opportunities and media grabbing propaganda headlines and news reporting, Russia is quietly getting on with the job and winning on every level, in fact, it has won. China is there in quiet but strong support as are other members of the SCO. No need to shout about it or garner massive propaganda headlines. The truth lies in what is happening on the ground and that is Russia is in massive ascendancy. I am not anything like an expert or otherwise in military matters but, my God, with Nightvision’s sitreps and your blogs, I have learned a lot. What I do know is the Transnistria/Moldova/Romanian/Polish thing is just another media worthy propaganda exercise to show the might of NATO. However, in reality it is absolute desperation, sheer and utter desperation on the part of USA and NATO and the West. They know the Russians will take Odessa and Nikolyiev and quite easily too as I think the UAF will surrender rather quickly. Russia, China and the SCO are the real powerhouse here. If China thinks Russia needs a hand, it will most certainly offer and provide assistance as will Iran and India. In the meantime, whilst the USA, UK, NATO and the EU are thrashing around in a constant state of hysteria, madness and visceral hatred towards Russia and China, Russia and China are quietly building a different world order in terms of ending US$ hegemony, new international payment systems, the BRI, payments in local currencies, alternatives to the SWIFT system (BRICS) and other brilliant financial innovations, the West is clinging on to the US$, trying to salvage the idea of the Unilateral World Order, preservation of Nazi ideology and the continuation of world instability through Wars. Which is fast becoming redundant. I am aghast at the true and total incompetence the West, NATO, the UK and the USA has on display at the moment. They are really in the latter stages of massive desperation. Russia’s demands are not unreasonable. There appears to be no politician in the West who is willing to stand up and say enough, what is wrong with meeting Russia’s demands? Orban is the only one that springs to mind. In the meantime, the West is on course for a massive energy crisis because of their idiocy and hysteria, there is, very shortly, going to be a massive commodity crisis on the Western Stock Exchanges and it looks like, potential civil war in the USA and other countries in Europe. Macron has gone a bit quiet since being re-elected. The French are making their dislike of him well known (pelting with tomatoes etc). There will be serious riots and demonstrations in France this year which the Citizens will win. All this, for the most corrupt country in the world, Ukraine, with the most Nazi, corrupt President in Europe who is willing for his civilians to die whilst he is not in the country and whilst he has billions of US$ holdings offshore, in London and a $34m mansion in Florida to which he can escape. The West is destroying itself for this corrupt sinkhole of the world. Good luck to them.
