The Ukronazis place a twelve (12!) year old girl on their “black list”

You must have heard about the “Mirotvorets” (Peacemaker) Ukronazi website: https://myrotvorets.center/ This is a semi-official website which lists all the “enemies of the Ukraine”, with photo and address.  We could call it an online “lynch list”.  The list of people included in their database ranges from anybody who does not approve of the Banderite Ukronazi ideology to some really ridiculous cases. But now, they reach a new low: they listed

Russians are in total awe at the suicidal stupidity of the West

The Russians are openly expressing their absolute amazement at the utter stupidity of the West.  Three examples: A recent article by Medvedev: Dmitry Medvedev: Why contacts with the current Ukrainian leadership are meaningless Putin’s speech at the recent energy forum in Russia: Russian President Vladimir Putin: Speech at Russian Energy Week (REW) international forum and then there is this photo of Putin tapping his forehead in the sign “have you

Repost: why the Empire always supports minorities

In the distant 2017, I wrote a piece I entitled “Manipulated minorities represent a major danger for democratic states“.  After reading the comments to my recent “Has the first domino already fallen” post, I have decided to repost that old one as I (hope) that it has a new relevance today, when the USA is been torn apart by the Woke ideology and Europe by multiculturalism.  I also see a

Has the first domino already fallen and if so, when? (UPDATED!)

A few years back, I wrote a column I entitled “Kosovo will be liberated” in which I wrote the following: “Kosovo will be the very first place in Europe where the pendulum of history will reverse its current course. ”  It now looks like I might have been wrong. But by how much?  Check out this headline today: “Bosnian Serbs to ‘withdraw consent’ for joint military, taxes and courts, citing

Book Review: The Russian Army on Parade

Today, I want to quickly review a truly superb two volume book called “The Russian Army on Parade” and “The Russian Commemoration Parade at the 75th Anniversary of Victory in World War Two” both written by Jim Kinnear (and Andrey Akesenow for the 2nd volume).  Here are the links to publisher from whom you can order both books: The Russian Army on Parade 1992-2017 The Russian Commemoration Parade These two

China in the crosshairs – is a war in the Far East and Pacific next?

As in my previous post, I will begin with referring you to two pieces. First, the typical China-bashing propaganda: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/taiwan-bristles-lashes-out-after-chinas-record-aerial-show-force Second, a very solid debunking of the China-bashing crap above: https://www.moonofalabama.org/2021/10/how-ap-reuters-and-scmp-propagandize-their-readers-against-china.html By the way, I also highly recommend to all my readers to read Moon of Alabama (https://www.moonofalabama.org/) at least once a day.  ‘b’ is a very solid analyst and his website is superb.  Even better is the fact that

More tectonic developments taking place

First, there is the crazy behavior of Germany. Rather than repeat it all here, I will simply point you to Andrei Martyanov’s article about this here: https://smoothiex12.blogspot.com/2021/09/drifting-apart.html ===>>>BTW I recommend to all my readers to check Martyano’v blog every day!<<<=== Then here is this: the DPRK is testing a hypersonic missile https://asia.nikkei.com/Spotlight/N-Korea-at-crossroads/North-Korea-claims-test-of-defense-busting-hypersonic-missile and https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2021/09/29/asia-pacific/north-korea-hypersonic-missile/ Some western “experts” have declared that the test “might” have been a failure.  Make of that

Luis Salinas interprets a medley of Argentinian zambas

I will be away from keyboard for a few hours, so I want to leave you with with yet another superb video of my absolutely favorite Argentinian jazz guitarist who here plays a medley of traditional Argentinian zambas (not to be confused with Brazilian sambas).  IMHO this guys is a virtuoso and a pure musical genius.  Each time I listen to him play this music my nostalgia for the “old

Hungary does the “unthinkable” and defends its national interests

Hungary as just signed a 15 year contract with Russia for the delivery of Russian gas via the southern route, thus bypassing the Ukraine completely (3.5 billion cubic meters via Serbia and 1 billion cubic meters via Austria).  But that is not all.  The Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has stated, in so many words, that this is a sovereign decision of Hungary and that is is nobody’s business how

Saker message to the community: we need your help.

Dear friends I wish we lived in a perfect world, populated by perfect people, and nobody would ever have to worry about or, even less so, ask for financial help (which I *really* hate doing, to put it mildly).  Alas, we don’t. The truth is that even a purely peaceful resistance like ours still runs on the “fuel” of money. Here are some the real world good news first: the

Interview with A.B. Abrams about his latest book and the war in Syria

by Andrei for the Saker blog A.B. Abrams has just released a new book entitled World War in Syria – Global Conflict on the Middle Eastern Battlefields.  Here are two locations were you can order this most interesting volume: https://www.claritypress.com/product/world-war-in-syria-global-conflict-on-middle-eastern-battlefields/ https://www.amazon.com/World-War-Syria-Conflict-Battlefields/dp/1949762467 For those who don’t remember who Abrams is, here are two of his previous contributions to the Saker blog: https://thesaker.is/dont-hold-your-breath-for-world-war-iii-world-war-iv-has-already-begun/ https://thesaker.is/north-korea-rising-interpreting-pyongyangs-strategic-position-after-its-groundbreaking-military-parade/ The book got A LOT of praise already,

9/11 twenty years later and cheap & ubiquitous cellphones

by Andrei for the Saker blog Twenty years have passed since 9/11, so where do we stand today?  I will give my short answers as bullet points and then let you post your own conclusions.  Here are mine: Numerous engineers, architects, chemists, researchers and others have proven beyond a reasonable doubt that 9/11 was a controlled demolition. There is very strong, albeit indirect, preponderance of evidence that the Israelis were

The Ukraine claims to be ready for an imminent war, today or tomorrow :-)

by Andrei for the Saker blog Well, we heard that, what, 10’000 times already?  Probably. But is this a reason to simply ignore yet another tsunami of hysterics coming out of Kiev? I mean, I get it: North Stream 2 has been completed today, all that’s left is a bunch of paperwork (which the Poles and Ukies are still trying to sabotage by offering to “participate” in the bureaucratic processes).

The Taliban, 9/11, the Empire, MAGA eastern wet pampers

by Andrei for the Saker Blog Most of you must have heard it: the Taliban will organize a major celebration on September 11th to mark the liberation of Afghanistan from the US occupation and the creation of the new Afghan government.  The Russians and the Chinese have been invited.  As are the Pakistanis.  Not sure about Iran (do you know?)? The Afghan government could be called a “GITMO government” since

Ukie terrorist group caught in Crimea

Actually, there have been a lot of terrorist attacks on Crimea, but either they were caught, or the actual damage was minimal.  So it’s not something new. This time, the Ukie SBU hired to guys to place explosives.  Everybody was caught. Now here comes the important factoid: all these attacks were planned and coordinated by either the Ukie SBU or the Ukie military intelligence service GUR (yes, like GRU, just

This and that, and some news and some more music

Dear friends First, a few quick announcements: We currently have 79 participants signed up for the Christian Vignettes This is NOT a closed list, newcomers can apply until the group becomes unmanageably too big (and we are not there yet!) One user entered a bad email or had a full email inbox.  All others should, by now, have received their credentials to sign in and participate in the discussion In

Wanna see what a US ‘hero’ looks like and how they really behave?

I heard about that video on Russian TV.  I decided to check it out.  Let’s make this clear, this is not a video produced by RT or some other “Putin propaganda toll farm”.  These are the US servicemen Biden calls “heroes”.  Here it is, with no need for further comments from me.  Behold the best and greatest warrior-heroes in history: Note: should YouTube decide to “patriotically” “correct” or “cancel” this

“Alexandria” by Yiannis Kotsiras (Live 2012)

I have always been a big fan of Greek music, be it traditional singing, Orthodox singing and even more modern types of Greek music of the Rebetiko style including, for example, Giorgos Dalaras.  Here is an example of Dalaras singing the famous Cuban son “Hasta Siempre Comandante” with Al Di Meola on guitars(!): Today a family member sent me a video of a singer I did not know, Yiannis Kotsiras,
