Fun headlines for CNN:
- US and Ukraine at odds over threat of Russian invasion
- US and UK embassy withdrawals were a “mistake,” says Ukrainian president
What?? Is that really CNN?
Furthermore, there are reports that Biden and Ze had a stormy telephone conversation which saw a furious Biden telling Ze that the invasion would happen. Apparently, Ze disagreed.
So what is going on here????
Bernard at Moon of Alabama thinks that “Washington Will Soon Dump Ukraine’s President Zelensky“.
I concur. In fact, I think that the US is basically dumping country 404 aka Banderastan, and as I explained here and here in some details, there is only one thing Uncle Shmuel wants from Ze and the Ukraine: for them to force Russia to intervene, either by a suicidal attack on the LDNR or by means of a false flag, or by some kind of atrocity.
A real nightmare for the AngloZionists is taking shape. Here are its components:
- In spite of all the external (and even INTERNAL!) pressures, the Kremlin does not want to invade the Ukraine at all. There are exactly ZERO signs that an attack is imminent or even planned.
- In case of a Ukie attack on the LDNR there is a very real possibility that Russia will not openly intervene, I explained it all in detail here.
- The US PSYOP about Putin being weak, indecisive or a puppet of the USA/Israel (I explained the nature, function and purpose of this CIA PSYOP in details here) is falling apart, not only was the ultimatum very much an ultimatum, but the Russians are backing it with things like these.
- NATO is cracking at the seams: the Croatians already said “no thanks”, the French and Germans don’t want to commit energetic seppuku, the Bulgarians are demanding details and guarantees and the French MPs are discussing whether to stay in NATO or not (they will stay, of course, but the topic is now raised).
- Neocon freaks like Nuland and Blinken are in full panic mode, they more than anybody else want a war and now that Russia seems to be able to deny them that, they will stay stuck with their own corruption, failures and potential electoral apocalypse in November.
- The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley warned a Russian invasion of Ukraine would be “horrific” for the country and would result in “significant” casualties. No kidding!
As for Ze, here are three headlines linked to his latest and, frankly, amazing statements:
- Ukraine crisis: Don’t create panic, Zelensky tells West
- Ukraine’s President Zelensky urges world leaders to tone down rhetoric on threat of war with Russia
- Volodymyr Zelensky accuses the West of causing ‘panic’ with warnings of a Russian invasion that hurts the Ukrainian economy
If anything, this open conflict between “Ze” and “Biden” shows two things:
- Zelenskii does not want to die, not even for the United States
- Biden is losing control of the Ukie narrative, thus losing control of country 404
Keep in mind that all these fake news about a Russian invasion are resulting in an economic disaster for the Ukraine. Just like the AngloZionist sanctions ended up hurting the West a lot more than Russia (hence they had to give up the plan to disconnect Russian from the SWIFT).
Interestingly, the head of the German intelligence service felt compelled to support Biden’s “Russia is about to attack in 30 seconds, and that’s a fact” point of view. That will result in internal tensions inside Germany who just fired the head of the German Navy for disagreeing with the official AngloZionist narrative.
Chaos and panic at all levels and everywhere.
Except in Russia and least of all in the Kremlin, of course.
There are signs that the worst nightmare for the Neocons might actually happen and Russia won’t be forced to invade the Ukraine.
What do Neocons do when they panic? Correct – false flag operations: that is MH-17 was all about. And the Skripals. And the “chemical attacks” in Syria. And Navalnyi. And so many others that I won’t list them here.
We can be sure they will try, what is uncertain is whether they will succeed.
These are the same people who did 9/11, and they are literally capable of *anything*, including a dirty bomb in downtown Kiev, a nuclear accident in the Ukraine blamed on Russian “saboteurs” or missiles, another civilian aircraft (or ship) destroyed a la MH-17, blow up a dam – you name it: if it is depraved, evil, ugly and based on accusations but zero evidence – you know its the Neocons which are at it.
Let’s wait for the US and NATO replies to become public before we try to guess what will happen next. The actual texts should be leaked soon.
Thank you for showing us what is going on behind the scenes. Hope some sane people in the West will stand up and speak out loud and show this brainwashing the nations openly. But I think I’m needing a miracle for this to happen!
Thanks for your post Andrei.
I was furious about the MSM slander against Russia presented by Danish TV2.
Later I saw that Canada is blowing up. Trudeau seems to have P++++ off the Canadians.
Today there are reports that Americans are protesting against more wars in DC
A Politician in Brussels (Demanding Anonymity) has told the German Bild that the US has acknowledged to the EU, that Russia probably does not intend to invade Ukraine.
A week ago DR news flash wrote that a British destroyer was passing by Copenhagen on its way into the Baltic Sea. Denmark do not accept foreign Navy with nuclear weapons onboard passing by Copenhagen.
Does Russia have a full overview of the location of all NATO ships in the Baltic Sea?
> Does Russia have a full overview of the location of all NATO ships in the Baltic Sea?
As do we armchair generals. There are open source trackers of all global flights, and all marine traffic.
And there are people globally who sit and watch these trackers all day and all night for fun. And report what they observe in chat logs.
Ok. It’s not 100%. And of course super secret military moves are more difficult to track. But don’t underestimate these obsessives.
This goes with the shortwave radio junkies like myself too, formatting has been cracked and transmission sites of number stations has been located, although you still can’t actually decrypt anything if you aren’t the intended recipient. ))
There was a NO WAR WITH RUSSIA/ DISMANTLE NATO Anti War demonstration yesterday in Washington DC.
“Hope some sane people in the West will stand up and speak out loud and …”
There are people doing this but the problem is the “Rupert Murdoch” media cabal won’t let it be reported fairly and openly.
” Hope some sane people in the West will stand up and speak out loud … “.
Yes, that would be nice. However, what at the moment is important is the fact that a rift has arisen within NATO regarding Ukraine, with European members beginning to refuse any potential military participation. It was to have been expected.
As I have written before, two world wars were fought on European soil and there is no mood for World War Three, as the two previous conflicts have not been forgotten, especially World War Two. This is something that the neocons in Washington DC and New York are incapable of understanding, nor do they wish to understand.To them Europe is a playground for American interests. A European reaction was inevitable. It will increase in due course.
We are getting a lot of military and technical information, 1) but what about drones? Wouldn’t that be the best way to take down special forces? 2) All money is in computers. We take down other people grids like it is our right. Doesn’t the great reset imply we have no money so they can use theirs? Does WEF actually need to take the grid down?
Just saying, “PREP”
Russia doesn’t do invasion. She does, however, do assistance. Consider her not so recent actions in Syria and her very recent actions in Kazakhstan. What if, admittedly a big what if, Zelensky were to ask Russia for assistance?
The current Russian naval manoeuvres are interesting. Quite a lot of ships are reportedly heading for Syria. Is it time to finally clean up Idlib?
On the other side of the Eurasian landmass there’s Taiwan. Let’s not forget Taiwan. Sooner or later Xi will have to lance that boil, but not before his Olympic party.
The gauntlet has been thrown. The tension is exquisite.
The ships going to Tartus in Syria appear to be using that as a port to engage in the military exercises Russia is conducting in the Med. Of course, they also provide additional support for the Russian navy in the Med to counter the US fleet exercises also going on in the Med.
Of course, both sides are merely positioning themselves in case something kicks off that escalates. Standard operating procedure during a crisis.
It appears, however, that Russia considers this a serious crisis, because allegedly this is the first time since the Soviet Era that the entire Russian navy (except ships in for repair and refitting) are going to be at sea. I don’t know if that’s true, but if it is it would appear Russia is pulling out all the stops to make a point.
One wonders if Xi will ask Putin on the 4th Feb for some naval-air cover over Libya (as well as Syria) as China gets on with a Syrian-Libyan post-Nato reconstruction programme?
If Xi wants naval air cover, he can get the PLA-Navy to do so. They have the resources.
I bet the raising of ISIS ugly head is another reason for fleet groups heading to the Mediterranean – it directly equates to a matter of national security. It also ensures that whatever ships Nato puts in the Black Sea can basically become trapped inside, or prevent too much stuff from going in, however you want to put it.
“bet the raising of ISIS ugly head is another reason for fleet groups heading to the Mediterranean”
No, not the case at all. It is a tried and tested situation that the Russian Navy has done before.
Pacific Fleet’s cruiser Varyag was sent in autumn 2013, to boost the presence there, with heightened tensions over Syria which resulted in chemical weapons disposal under UN supervision.
2018 another instance of Russian Navy boosting its presence in the Mediterranean https://www.businessinsider.com/russia-massive-naval-armada-syria-us-chemical-weapons-strike-2018-8
So, it is not a one-off but shows the urgency and seriousness of the overall geopolitical situation. Not forgetting that there are 3 aircraft carriers on NATO exercises in the central Med, Neptune Strike. U.S, Italian and French. So, the Russian Navy is wary and monitors their presence:

To be honest, I would prefer Russia to be allied with Ukraine again.
There are plenty of things that need to change though, like purging the nazi fascists, new leadership (that isn’t a puppet of the West), crackdown on rampant corruption, expelling the West, reparations to Donetsk and Luhansk etc.
Only after these things are complete can Ukraine start acting like Russia’s brother again.
Now, will it happen? Highly unlikely.
Meanwhile, internal pressure is building on Biden.
The Republicans are clamoring for the transcript of the Ze-Biden phone call. Like the Dems demanded and got the “perfect phone call” between Ze and Trump.
A true sign of Biden’s policy was delivered by gravity today.
The Bridge to Tomorrow (my name for the mortally wounded edifice) in Pennsylvania fell before Biden could get there.
A fateful “burning bridges before you cross them” is symbolic of all Biden’s geopolicies. He never helped his birth home state in 50 years of Congress and Senate. He stuffed all the dough in his own pockets.
Today, he went to sell his domestic agenda in a state that has 1,000 bad bridges and half its roads riddled with potholes. And he hopes for this, his native state, to deliver resurrection of his collapsing poll numbers.
Biden is symbol of the US condition. Old, broken, dangerous and ready for gravity to pull it all down.
So goes Joe, so goes Ukraine, so goes Uncle Sam.
US engineers have been saying this for years,billions need to be spent to just
fix current problems never mind building brand new infrastructure like in China.
Like you say it’s all gust falling apart round their corrupt ears.
“. He never helped his birth home state in 50 years of Congress and Senate. He stuffed all the dough in his own pockets. ”
I believe Biden did help/protect the usurious credit-card corporations in Delaware big-time. In so doing he has significantly hurt minority and other communities in the USA, since these corporations, with their debt hooks, have creamed off huge profits from all of the USA’s poor, and minority communities especially, whose members were unable to get credit elsewhere.
And, Biden has protected Delaware as a financial haven for many large US corporations. So he might have done something for the employees of those companies who live in Delaware. But not for anyone else!!
And I’m sure his pockets have been well lined in return for these protections.
Of course it is the same deal with Texas politicians and the oil industry. And California politicians and Silicon Valley. Etc.
You are correct regarding the state Amtrak Joe represented.
However he was born in Pennsylvania.
The bridge collapsed in that state.
But everything’s fluid now in the USA.
Like “Liberace in a flowing gown of glittering rhinestones (c)”
Who remembers where anyone was born?
Do we even know where Obama was really born
They say there were only 3 minor casualties, totally dismissive of a huge down & out tent city who lived under that bridge, much like the disenfranchised do under most bridges in America.
“Biden is symbol of the US condition. Old, broken, dangerous and ready for gravity to pull it all down.”
Good one. I’ll be quoting that one in the future, with your permission and credit.
What’s remarkable is that both Russia AND Ukraine are essentially saying that no invasion is on the cards even as the US and it’s closest satrapies in the 5-eyes insist if it is.
It seems to dawning on Zelensky that the role his DC patrons demand of him is one who will lead his country into a ruinous war for their benefit. No doubt Zelensky personally is being offered all sorts of post-war jobs: a high paying sinecure in a NATO think tank/tech corporation/consultancy firm.
It should be also now be abundantly clear to even average Ukrainians and any intelligent Europeans, that the Washingtonian Empire sees Ukrainians as disposable cannon fodder for the war they want – even desperately need for their own domestic reasons – with Russia which apart from killing Russians will serve as a trigger for the teed up sanctions – the real aim – that will severely impact both Russia and as a bonus Europe thus keeping them under the US/global elites mercy. All this with no cost to the US/UK and a huge benefit to their “defense” companies (who recently quite openly spoke about how it will be good for business.
The biggest threat to Russia as a nation after all is NOT a military war but an economic one. While Russia is relatively well protected militarily, its economics are less so as much as Russia has tried to decouple and protect itself from outside pressure. War is a means to an end, and the end that Washington desires is a fractured Russia like it was after the dissolution of the USSR (which imploded without a shot being fired from the West but having the sane result as a full blown invasion: a massive collapse of state power in all external and internal dimensions.
The sanctions then – and with it the total subservience of Europe – are the true prize and the ones Washington seems determined to find reasons to impose. And this is what Russia needs to figure out how to mitigate against.
I would argue that sanctions will turn fully against the U.S. First, Europe will not be happy with them and their economy will suffer greatly from lack of interaction with Russia. Secondly, the blowback from that and from other countries looking at Russia and China decoupling from the Washington consensus of global financial institutions (WTO, SWIFT, IMF, World Bank, BIS et al) well may lead them to join more tightly with Russia and China, thus slaying the US$.
Just conjecture, I’m not a fortune teller, and above all, I hope that Russia can out wait and outwit the US establishment.
Two days ago president Putin was talking to Italian businessmen in a zoom conference, and it seems there was the basis to continue their profitable relationship in the future. It seems to me that both Russia and China must have thought about a substitute for SWIFT.
For me, yours is the most perspicacious comment in this string.
It’s what Russia and China need to figure out. Russia is not on its own economically this time round.
I suggest that the biggest threat to US as an A-Z empire is both a military war AND an economic one. The shylock banksters are desperate for a war to cover their bad bets and keep the house of cards propped up. The pandemic and vax campaign is losing steam.
Not convinced by that argument. The shylock banksters are the ones driving this war because it will collpase the global finacial system and the national economies. They will then clean up by foreclosing on all the defaulting loans they have on their books. Those defaults will allow them to take ownership of real estate and businesses that were purchased with money that never existed until the shylock banksters put the digits in the borrowers bank accounts.
The problem is that this is all the work of narcissistic parasites whose self absorbed insanity gets in the road of realistic appraisals of the odds of success. The resistance is growing by the day and it is possible to come away feeling a little bit hopeful if one reads beyond the mainstream.
“No doubt Zelensky personally is being offered all sorts of post-war jobs: a high paying sinecure in a NATO think tank/tech corporation/consultancy firm.”
As outlined in NotEuclid on January 28, 2022 · at 2:04 pm EST/EDT
Verbal diarrhoea – LTSD (s)
and elsewhere, when frustrated and perceiving the need to practice it-wasn’t-me-it-was-my-sister, “The United States of America” becomes even more vindictive than the “norm”, and seek cauterisation of “the problem” by emulating practices based upon Mr. Stalin’s misguided observation – “no man; no problem” ignoring that too many cadavers poison the water supply, which others are in continuing lateral process of transcending by pondering “How to drown a drowning man with the minimum of blowback ? “, and hence options of securing the complicity of others in such endeavours are reduced, unlike the cases of Mr. Bandera, Mr. Mitrione and others.
Some of “The United States of America” perceive that they are under existential threat and perhaps will not be around for afters/dessert, and hence on balance it is likely more productive to cauterise rather than preserve “assets/unreliable holders of secrets” for possible future use.
However some degree of blowback cannot be avoided, irrespective of the “decision” attempted to be implemented given others also have agency.
Once more the invitation offered to “The United States of America” is faites vos jeux – place your bets since “no doubts” are never an option outwith resort to belief, including belief in playbooks.
The biggest economic threat to Russia is their Central Bank, which has strangled Russia with high interest rates for a decade. Bragging about low or no government deficits is stupid. That is a guarantee of economic stagnation. I don’t know how history can be any more clear on that.
Based on various negative comments, a question arises, why is Russia letting the The Rothschild Group operate in Moscow. The Rothschild Group is involved in restructuring, investment advisory, … Since when?
Also, why is PJSC Sberbank a state-owned Russian banking and financial services company headquartered in Moscow listed on Wall Street (SBRCY)? State doesn’t have money? Why share important information with an adversary by listing on their financial markets?
Since 2007 it has been known to the awakened that the Financial Empire is going to capture Russia again and bring it under control as was the situation in 1990s. The Empire has been pursuing “encirclement” and “containment” of Russia and before that the Soviet Union since 1947. There is nothing new about it. Just read the Bilderberg meeting notes. Even in 2019 Bilderberg, Russia was a key topic. When will Russia address this challenge?
“Six Russian companies have successfully gone public in the past 12 months and at least 10 more are rumored to go public in the coming months. Russian IPO market returned to life in late 2020.
Russian firms raised around $7 Billion in 2021 listings,” Russia has no money for its companies? No $7 billion? Why list on the Adversaries’ markets? How many listed & raised in London? Has Russia been Sleeping? What does Russia not understand?
“At least 10 Russian companies could hold an initial public offering (IPO) in 2022,”
– Dec 14, 2021
Any article that misses the important dimension of Money, ignores financial markets,… is mistaken or misleading, most likely. Follow the money. Numbers validate the assumptions and hypothesis.
Russia is strong militarily but weak monetarily?
Well, the Democratic Party with the encouragement of the ADL can always slaughter the Native White American Working Class as a back-up plan…..It is not unreasonable to think that this demographic group is the real target of the US Military….
@ War for blair mountain
You are right on the money !! That is the plan.
@war for Blair mountain
Oh no, how horrific. Not tipping the fruits of empire anymore. I’m sure your country man share the indifference tho for the rest of the world.
Liesayer, you are wrong. Most Americans are not indifferent to others suffering. And It is disgusting to be ok with the genocide of any population. The foul stench of racism against white (or any race for that matter) colors the ability to see the truth. As a ‘truthsayer’ that is the first lesson you must learn.
And how many millions of civilians were killed by American assassins? You committed genocide to innocent people in Hiroshima with Nagasaka, Korea and Vietnam, Yugoslavia and Libya, Iraq, Syria…
How many people have been killed by your bloody “orange revolutions” since 1917?
And your agent of influence, Colonel Eduard Mandelhaus, Fuhrer Schicklgruber/Hitler, how many tens of millions did Rockefeller and the Jewish banking kibbutz destroy?
In Russia alone, over 60 million people were killed!
(Insults removed.In the future refrain from insults,MOD)
Why become peeved with truth. Majority of Americans are indifferent. That’s a fact. There’s not reason for some infantile rudimentary retort tainted with miss leading points. This is history of mankind. No servant is greater than his master. Your ruling class reflects the majority of the Americans population. Did you never think you’d be at the receiving end when the house of cards begun to crumble? Have you and does other not indifferent mana and woman gone out and protest your misdeeds? Highly doubt it.
Sorry to say, I agree that the American people are largely indifferent to suffering, even more so to suffering outside the US. Most other nations have the sme problem, though. Never lose sight of the fact that this indifference was nurtured and protected by the MSM doing what they are paid to do. As for those non-existent protest marches, the .01% made a big but casual point about the 11 million worldwide who marched in March 2003 to protest the US attack on Iraq. The .01% made sure those marches had no effect whatsoever. No politicians lost their next re-election. Media manipulators didn’t lose advertisers or readers, other than the internet slowly taking away eyeballs and income. Where I live in the US, in 2006 a very electable Democrat with a sterling resume that included being a major or a captain so he would have picked up much of the Republican vote, was a candidate for the Senate seat. He was shunted aside by the state Democrat-tic (sic) Party, in favor of a nobody. Why ? Because the big money backers wanted another guy.
Bottom line is that in order to fix things, and this is true in most nations that need major renewal, is that we the peoples have to do politics differently than now. People power versus money power. Also, and very importantly, is that we need to ditch the large variety of false friends whose career has been to mislead the people. It’s not left versus right. It’s bottom versus top.
Biden сегодня a lame duck.
If the donkey party does not tame inflation – which has long been stagflation – that is, does not defeat the Fed synagogue led by Jerome Powell and does not pass its Electoral Reform Bill …
The Democrats will lose the 2022 congressional election and to lose the 2024 presidential election.
Therefore, it is not clear to Russia and China with whom to negotiate today (Biden-Trump – …) and whether it is necessary to negotiate now about anything at all. The United States has always been incapable of negotiating, and now it is not at all.
Let’s explore another angle. Zelenski is puppet of Ukraine/Jewish oligarchy. After realizing that Russia can clean Syrian mess with iron broom, Israel was unpleasantly surprised. Obviously they didn’t saw that comming. Instead humiliating themselves by approaching Americans directly, with request to reconsider whole strategy, Jews ordered Ze to make a call. If Israel is behind Zelensky, it will be wery difficult to remove him. No wonder Americans are furious.
Meanwhile, Russia will continue military-technical responded.
Kolomoisky is the Jew with Israeli backing, not the comedian.
Ze is the ultimate expendable fool. He has survived threats from the nazi challengers by allowing the ATO to continue killing Russians.
He has marginalized the corrupt Kolomoisky who had Porky and Akhmetov to deal with and lost big time.
Porky couldn’t survive the election, rigged by the US to deliver Ze to the Presidency.
But now, Ze thought he could play Biden for US troop support or huge supply of Air Defense, EW, UAV, Aircraft and technical support for a final war on Donbass.
Of course, equipment like that is a red line. Russia would blow it all away on the runway it entered Ukraine.
So, Ze is a chameleon who can play a lot of roles, but has no choice in the roles he is forced to play.
Presently, he is getting a massive influx of money and weapons. If he plays it smart, he’ll rake off his take, get into his jet plane and leave. The US will sort things out with Porky’s return.
Ze is the most dispensable leader in all the world. A human widget.
In fact, a totally fictional President of Ukraine could be installed, and no one would care or challenge the idea. The US controls everything. The UK handles most of the dirty work. The Ukie population just wants bread and their tiny government handouts, subsistence if they can get it.
“The US controls everything. The UK handles most of the dirty work.”
My gut feeling is that its the other way around.
Not UK as country, of course. It’s London based international oligarchy using their proxy, Zionist right hand. Everything that Zionists control in US is under tight control of London based oligarchy. Wall Street is controlled by City of London, not the opposite way.
The rest of US doesn’t like it one bit. they just has been silent during Good Times. That’s over. We witnessed British doing dirty work recently, only because Americans won’t do it anymore.
Let me put it this way. Biden’s administration and MSM pushes for war because they are AZ shills, not because it is in US best interests. Everybody else in US will pay heavy price if AZ succeeds. Heavier than EU pays now. Consequentially, there is rift in US growing, we just not see it clear as we rely on internet, controlled by AZ. Our input is heavily biased and distorted.
Basic logical thinking, history and life experience are antidote to that.
Same gut feeling. UK is the mother of US without the love. The City of London must have their investments already in the winning party, China … I wonder if it is possible for China to ban those investors even if it really hurts « her ».
It is asking much from China who has it good now and seems to prefer tackling corruption as a doctor might deal with metastasis rather than the mother tumor.
I bet China is opting for the least dangerous outcome, and yet, the disease not only keeps her busy but eats away the real Mother.
If, and I agree with you, « Basic logical thinking, history and life experience are antidote to that (heavily biased and distorted input), then is there an antidote also for the evil disease? My take on it, is that, at an individual level, as well as society level, the indifference is allowing evil to spread. Like the « little Prince », at our small level, we need to keep pulling out those baobab seedlings in order to save our little planet. That got me wondering about what happened on his planet with its rose while he was gone journeying from planet to planet and to the Earth. Then, my grown-up scientific mind reassure me with an explanation: As the dream goes, the roles are inverted : time doesn’t fly anymore and the dreamer can fly. Restraint relativity. Conclusion : « Life is but a dream »
I wish we can row our boat gently down the stream and let the disease résorber itself as we engage in healthy behavior.
Of course, there is shining light on the dark side also, realizing that I carry the disease (I need to watch out not to identify with it, as it locks me in shame/denial/alienation and really become the dis-ease). The unconscious script imprinted might not be projecting an ever friendly stream of events… But «gently» is key (rowing too. Lazy me!).
Just to wrap up and bring back the spotlight on the City of London, here is a clear picture of the Brexit in Russian with English subtitles : rats… I will have to fetch it again and send it separately, if you don’t mind.
“… is there an antidote also for the evil disease?”
There must be. Otherwise, we wont be here to ask. “What?” is the even better question.
Answer is in those things that are fiercely repressed and silenced.
Equally important is what is NOT the antidote but poison in disguise?
“If he plays it smart, he’ll rake off his take, get into his jet plane and leave.”
But where wou;d he go?
He would go BooM!
I think China is behind everything. Everybody knows China controls the US, the US controls Ukraine and China and Russia are strong allies. Now if China manipulates the US into attacking Russia through the Ukraine and things result in nuclear war, this would mean that the US, Ukraine, Russia and Europe are destroyed.
Isn’t this what China wants? Look at all the land it would inherit.
I wish Putin is not out smarted by Xi and maybe that’s why he is holding off invading Ukraine doing everything he can even trying to persuade Ze not to attack the Donbass.
That’s why the Zionists are going crazy with their plans. So far its not working for them. But we shall see the truth come out eventually.
I continue to be worried about the Russia-China compact, when I look at the size of Russia and the population and resource base of China.
Russia should institute a family support policy, a la Hungary. Perhaps they already have such a policy.
They need more people—more Russians.
Here we go again, it’s the evil Chinese of course. You seem to know very little about China and your nonsense comment doesn’t deserve an answer from an intellectual POV. On the other hand it shouldn’t also be left apparently unchallenged in a high quality comment section such as the one of the Saker.
Reading last night came across comment by George I had to read twice thinking oh no, I wonder where he heard that? Maybe at Wal-Mart?. I haven’t been in one for awhile but guessing as one shops tberes a message over speaker all these items made in China, now dont forget they want to murder you. Or maybe her heard it on the news but I doubt tbat, surly they only report truth. But George and many others believe it, idk.
Hi George ,I have also thought that may be the long term plan ,It started durning the Nixon Pres.
send all of USa no-how and bussinees manufacture out off the USA destory American, Kill -off the white race,
and have a War between USA and Russia ,It’s the same plan they (Zionest ) had for ww 2 Russia and Germany
both to destory each other, then Zionest England would take over ,but it was to much to do ,and it did work out
as planned. these Khazars never for get , they being trying to settle the score with Russia (RUS) since ( 860 AD ).
I hope Putin and company known their history , need to be careful with China and never let their gard down.
What is this blatant nonsense here? Russia and China have developed an extraordinary level of mutual trust that has never been achieved before. Oh and by the way, the northeastern provinces of China (Dongbei) are demographically emptying out, so no migration takeover of the Russian Far East. There will be no repeat Kissinger, the US will never ever again be able to play off China and Russia against each other, just get over it!
This may happen long term ,China plans 5 yr min.25 -50 yrs long term usa. 3 months , we done thing like
they do ! I’am glad you mention ( Dongbe ) China ,a major problem Russia has it’s Population , is to small ,
It needs about 500 million to cover it’s land mass and it has to have the real Russia’s as the majority and get rid
of the NGO’s and reduce the power and control of over three thousand billionar’s many of them Jewish Khazars
Also Gorbe and yeilsen where traders and destoryed Russia.
@ Tom 123
The reason the Eastern Orthodox Byzantine Empire lasted 1000 years longer than the Western Roman Empire was because they had no Jews in education, politics and banking.
Thank you for that information , I did not know that.
But they certainly control just about everything now ! less than 1 % world wide plus the followers.
@ TOM 123
That’s why we have wars, usury, violation of rights, abortion, same sex marriage, transgenderism, etc.
Of course it’s just a coincidence, but after Russia began flying over the Golan Heights, Ze’s conversation totally changed…
Zelenskii and usamericans aren’t on the same page. He’s approaching the chinese …
The Chinese and Russians from Beijing on February 4th will send them fuck off!
Poroshenko stole $4,8 billion from Russia. Zelensky also stole $4.5 billion, but from China.
Considering that the ex-USSR has been in technical default since 2014…
What are you talking about? – do not make laugh forum.
Russia posts patrols at Latakia – 2nd impediment to Israel air strikes over Syria
Jan 26, 2022 @ 15:38 impediment for Israel Syria air strikes, Russian military police Latakia
The Russian army posted military police forces at Syria’s Latakia port on the Mediterranean on Wednesday, Jan. 26, just 48 hours after announcing joint patrol missions with the Syrian air force over the Golan and Euphrates border regions.
The police units have set up quarters at the container area of the port from which they are patrolling the entire facility, according to Russian defense ministry. Photos of the operation were unusually released to Russian media. (see photo) These military police units are in fact categorized as special forces.
The Israeli air force has struck Latakia’s container compound twice – on Dec. 7th and 27th – aiming at the advanced weapons deliveries Iran had been shipping in to Hizballah, its Lebanese proxy.
According to the ministry’s announcement, military police will henceforth be conducting “round-the-clock patrols of the seaport of Latakia, armed with Patrul and Tigr armored vehicles.”
Moscow has thus drawn a defense line for impeding Israeli air strikes ranging from the Golan in the southeast and east to Latakia port in the west. The port is adjacent to Russia’s permanent air base at Hmeymim.
Israel was not notified of either of the new Russian steps in Syria although they maintain a joint mechanism for coordinating Israel’s air operations against Iran’s military presence in the country. These steps also provided Moscow with an answer to the Assad’s regime’s longstanding complaints about the non-use of the Russian-supplied S-300 and S-400 air defense systems against Israeli warplanes.
Thanks for this important update from SW Asia. We’ve lost track of this significant venue during the Ukraine crisis. Syria and Lebanon deserve more attention.
I’ve always believed the Ukraine blowup in ’14’ was an attempt to keep Putin busy on his own borders in hopes he wouldnt come to Syria’s defense
> …although they maintain a joint mechanism for coordinating Israel’s air operations against Iran’s military presence in the country.
What is this supposed to mean? Does Russia still collaborate with Israel by helping them to blow up Iranian deliveries in support of Hamas?
Obviously, I didn’t mean Hamas but Hezbollah.
Fed: Only statistical error separates US economy from contraction
Atlanta Fed Press Release:
– Our official forecast for real GDP growth in the first quarter is 0.1%.
Revisions of official BEA estimates of actual GDP dynamics are many times greater than this 0.1%
Against the backdrop of record inflation for the United States for many decades, this Fed forecast is fully consistent with the definition of stagflation.
you name it: if it is depraved, evil, ugly and based on accusations but zero evidence – you know its the Neocons which are at it.
Herr Schwab has suggested what it might be. I think he said energy and communications failures which would dwarf the impact of the virus.
yes, the Ukrainian oligarchs have already started to see blood in their pockets, and have realized that a war with Russia will make them bankrupt. These oligarchs are somehow directing zelensky and also directing or controlling the military and even the Nazis. Ukraine is surprising. Biden really is a bad diplomat. It’s amazing how closed and not transparent Germany is to the international media. The Germans are very reserved, and it is difficult to see clearly what is happening inside Germany. Too much censorship, and mediocre journalism in Germany. Merkel did a good job for the empire.
Do you think that a war involving 404 and donbass forces without Russia s intervention will be enough for the neocons in Washington and London to claim that Russia is involved to then impose the sanctions they have been talking about for weeks? How far would Germany and France follow the narrative and agree to impose sanctions in this scenario?
I have a second question. Canada the UK and the US (plus poland and the baltic states) are deeply involved in the conflict in 404. They arm and train 404 army. They have deployed soldiers at the front line. The EU and the UK are providing money to 404 money which is used to by weapons. Ukraine is a complete western puppet.
If a conflict starts and escaltes and many Russia’s citizens in the donbass (hundred of thousands of civilians living in the donbass have a Russian passport now) are wounded and killed how would Russia react regarding nato countries involved in the conflict? Will Russia see these nato countries involved in the conflict as the masterminds responsible of the death of civilians with a russian passport? If yes will Russia target those countries? I know that the Russian government said that in case of war (in general not 404 specifically) they would also target those who are responsible you know the puppet masters. I am asking this because I am trying to assess if this would apply in a conflict in eastern 404 going out of control.
If the crazies in Nato start a war with Russia,why should Russia play by their rules and keep any fighting to Russia’s neigbourhood ? if the bastards thought Berlin and other Nato cities could end up looking like Berlin in May 1945 it may concentrate their tiny unhinged minds.
“Scorched earth tactics”, the American national fascists always use it when they run away from the battlefield.
The threat of a tit-for-tat is a good deterrence, isn’t it?
Canada is the choice target. Destroy their excellent troops and fire missiles into the ministry of defence in Ottawa and force their hot minister of foreign affairs into Ukrainian porn. And very likely there would be no declaration of war on Russia by Canada, and no kinetic NATO response.
It looks like after the pandemic fiasco the world is karmically rebalancing. Out of all the possible outcomes of this standoff it looks so far like the best is outcome is coming forth. NATO is splitting up peacefully and there is no war happening.
Maybe, Zelensky finally realized that an America-provoked war between Ukraine and Russia could end in his own physical “elimination”?
The humiliation that former Georgian ruler, Mikhail Saakashvili, suffered when he ended up chewing his own tie on TV during the 2008 Georgia-Russian war would be nothing compared to Zeleneksy’s fate.
Zelensky likely would not want to die as cannon fodder for Uncle Satan.
Reuters has Cookie Monster Nuland asking China for help in de-escalating with Russia.
And this was *after* China had officially told the US it supports the Russian demand for security guarantees.
Script writers would not have ever considered some of these plot twists as they would seem too ridiculous for an audience to believe.
One thing the US could do is kill Zelensky and blame it on Russia.
Funny, I am thinking along the same lines; throw Zelenski under the bus, and blame it on Russia. Easy and cheap maneuver which equals to RF attack on ukros, plus, they get rid of the joker.
Who knows, it is possible he will dial Vladimir Putin for help just as Sultan Erdogan did. That would be a day!
They’ll give him a light poison and their media will broadcast to the world that it was a Russian assassination attempt. The Danes will believe if no one else.
Why wouldn’t Putin be just as relentlessly focused on Zelensky to prove how, why, and by whose hand he dies…if he does dies?
What a story that would be! GATES! SOROS! BIDEN MURDER FOR THIER WORLD WAR…WORLD WAR 3!
Not even Zionist media monopoly could censor and hide that one
There has been a lot of talk on various blogs that the first place Russia may act militarily and technically is Syria. That sounds like a good idea.
I don’t know if it makes sense from a military standpoint, but if it does, I would love to see Russia act militarily and technically against Kosovo.
The thing about corrupt officials, and the Ukraine is one of the world’s leaders at least in that area, is that you can never be sure that they will stay bought.
And if you are urging a corrupt official to commit suicide on your behalf, then one would have to expect the corrupt official to be entertaining other offers, if not out actively soliciting such alternate offers.
What do Neocons do when they panic?- depraved, evil and ugly..
against Mother Russia since the 1800s with the full instigation and backing of London and Parisian bankers….
One could perhaps add a well calculated and INDUCED volcanic eruption or more in the northern hemisphere preferably.
– such a *Pinatubo* winter or even longer at a *Toba/Krakatoa* scale with megatons of sulphur dioxide etc, in the upper atmosphere would eliminate a majority of the population in the northern hemisphere. Then after 2- 4 years many regions could be reoccupied by the remaining chosen few (preferably circumsized and non-jabbed..) with their 6-7th generation autonomous robots. One can be sure RAND corp and Langley etc., have already run the simulations.
– this would also eliminate a few million US servicemen/CIA professionals and mercenaries etc, These dangerous individuals are completely superfluous to the NWO, a drain on a non-existent pension system etc., the actions of the late psychopath John MaCaine towards veterans and grunts TRULY exemplifies how the Deep-state, City of London etc., feel about lower and middle military cannon-fodder.
– it is most interesting to note that a good pal of George Soros, Joe Lewis the English Zionist billionaire has established in Patagonia, Argentina, a large residential/agricultural/urban complex in the southern mountainous region. Apparently with a hard surfaced non-radared airfield which can accommodate medium sized airliners. Much to the ire and vain protests of the local Argentinian residents (goyim) of El Bolson and Mallín Ahogado. https://www.mintpressnews.com/dark-secret-behind-british-billionaire-joe-lewis-parallel-state-in-argentina-patagonia/256068/
– apparently quite a large number of Russians and others believe the Chernobyl Nuclear power plant disaster which was in very close proximity to the massive Over-the-horizon Woodpecker radar installation (steel structures still standing..) should also be considered as an attack upon Russia/USSR.- depraved, evil and ugly..!!!
As for the radioactive fall out – well just, F… the EU for the umpteenth time!!(many, many times..)
– just to underscore the historic depravity of these Anglo-zionist psychopaths – General Groves in late 1945, a few weeks after the guinea-pig experimental nuke tests on Hiroshima and Nagasaki ordered another 150 bombs (I think..) with multi-hit targets on the major centres in Russia and Eastern Europe…
Merci beaucoup/many thanks again to that wonderful 65./. pure uranium/cobalt mine in Katanga, the Belgian Congo.
BUT FINALLY THIS TIME – the Russians with VVP & Co., are able to effectively hit back at multiple levels..
This is simply not fair.. not cricket what!!!
Thanks for the link to the Mintpress story on Joe Lewis. What he is getting away with is shocking.
And it is all too reminiscent of the theft of land and resources in Palestine, where he presumably cut his predatory teeth.
The Argentine army should be sent in to clear this guy out.
There are credible tales of Herr Hitler and Herr Bormann escaping to the German Enclave t Patagonia. History rhymes, they say. They also say Bormann’s skull “discovered” in Berlin had red Patagonian soil adhered.Use searchterm “Borman Hitler Patagonia” …and of course Comrade Stalin insisted Hitler got away… Withal, it would seem logical that nazis would run, both now and then, to their pals…then there’s the money…who will get the money this time? If they lose the gold, then they’ll be hunted…and they’re going to lose the gold.
As to “fear and panic”…indeed, the lesser gods of war. Remember that the cowardly but esteemed fine gentlemen of Zone A have no understanding of what war means. One or two may possibly been in a fist-fight at the cathouse or bar…but that’s all.
The objective behind the crisis seems to be to create a definitive economic split between Europe and Russia by trying to scare the crap out of the Europeans. The Europeans are not taking the bait–the economic costs are too high. Perhaps the fundamental miscalculation was assuming the new German government would play along. Doubt that actual war was ever Washington’s plan. Believe the Russians understand this and will continue to, wisely, play it cool.
“The investors of Nord Stream 2 are European energy companies Engie, OMV, Royal Dutch Shell, Uniper, and Wintershall DEA. ”
These companies stand to lose a lot if Nord Stream 2 does not open.
I think Gazprom is a 50% investor and the other 50% is the above companies.
News from the fields
Zelensky said everything that the US ordered, in particular Blinkin (Strategic Group Aspen, US State Department).
And the fake “CNN source about Biden’s disagreements with Zelensky” allowed grandfather Shmuel to save face – to save his reputation.
Otherwise, everyone will know the truth that the United States has capitulated and is yielding to NATO member countries in order to “rob” Russia and China.
This is the start of the Russian project “Greater Eurasia” / “Eurasian Economic Space” and the Chinese “One Belt – One Road”.
The enemies failed to disrupt the agreements in Beijing on February 03-04, 2022 between Putin and Xi.
Zelensky should flee to Moscow or Tel Aviv. Offending Joe Biden and showing Biden to be somewhere between stupid and a liar was probably not a wise thing for Z to do.
What individuals or groups does he have protecting him now in Ukraine?
@ White Whale :
More from the same ” I don’t see much room for U.S.-China cooperation here, unfortunately … The U.S. would have to close the door to future NATO expansion for China to get on board, and Secretary Blinken has already stated that this is a non-starter.”
Well this will definitely p**s china as she wont fullfill her dream of being part of that band of performers.
the only way for the U.S. to conduct a war outside of it’s border is to move it’s airforce with aircraft carriers .take out it’s carriers and it’s airforce cannot move without fuel tanker planes,which are just juicy targets. most bases do not have the range to be all that much use including the rest of nato.
Zelinskii has some kind of a trump-card in his complain with Biden…. (the Biden Junior scandal in Ukraine…) Sure Zelinskii get and keep all the exact info about that in case there is some treat over his person from his US boss…
To discard Zelinskii isn’t so simple for Biden & Co in fact. Delivery of a lot of weapons is not enough…Probably Zelinskii asked Biden for a lot of “helicopter dollars”. All Ukraine is now a real hot economic cauldron for US. Russia has been very keen in staying out and quietly looking at the eastern doorstep.
Good piece. Unfortunately, it appears Alea iacta est (Latin- ‘the die is cast’). The US ruling elite are apoplectic/ enraged the Russia-China-Iran axis has reached economic/ military parity (superiority?) and are becoming an increasingly assertive obstacle to US global hegemony. Biden’s aggressive and bellicose position in Ukraine should be considered within the context of the accelerating rot/decline of late-stage American capitalism which has progressed to the point where its very survival is contingent upon constant debt monetization (aka money printing) to prop up financial markets and the military. This is becoming increasingly tenuous as this orgy of money printing and debt has created gigantic bubbles in every asset class- equities, bonds, real estate, aka the ‘everything bubble’, which has increased inflation and threatening to derail the dollars role as the world reserve currency. Joe Biden and the ruling elite he represents have no way of resolving the immense structural economic and social problems confronting American society and further, have no intention of agreeing to Russian (or Chinese, Iranian) security demands. This is leading to war. See- US-NATO escalate war threats against Russia: Are you ready for World War III? Jan 28, 2022; Link: https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2022/01/28/pers-j28.html
“Unfortunately, it appears Alea iacta est (Latin- ‘the die is cast’).”
We know we are in “1984” country when “Peace is War!” … Lol.
It’s just that Russia + China forbade the United States to kill and rob – and this is the death of capitalism.
Without plundering the colonies, capitalism will die
Yes. This is all that matters. The sooner the better.
Two decades ago I used to peruse the WSWS every morning, sometimes before the box scores. Their strident authoritative indignance was thrilling and inspiring. I didn’t even need the coffee some mornings.
After some time, the boiler plate at the end of each masterpiece really irritated me. I don’t like being walked up the garden path, like some cute golden retriever. I noted this boilerplate hadn’t changed substantially in 150 years. Wherever it had been implemented, it brought a greater catastrophe than preceded it. And finally it dawned on me these were herding pens for useful idiots; perhaps the original impulse was sincere among the cadre, but they are now controlled opposition.
And once one developed the knack to read the MSM PR stories for yourself, it was redundant.
Cosimo recently spoke of how the real Left was coopted by at least the start of the 1960’s hippie movement. I think an argument can be made the National Security Act of 1947, the McCarthy purges/red scare, the rise of Suburbia, and the Beat generation completed the process even before the 1960s..
WSWS is an impotent cul-de-sac designed to enrage about systemic injustices and thereafter to disillusion when nothing ever changes. A pacifying 2-minute course of Hate.
Aljazeera has the same functionality for West Asia – they reveal just enough of the Truth without serious solutions or recourse and then lead to suffocating hope and will for change.
Nevertheless, their distinct fact-based style provides synthesis and clarity for those short on time or overwhelmed by the deliberate MSM information overload and shenanigans.
Maybe that’s why I am so fond of Larch – he has their sparse, clipped, hard-hitting, no-bullshit viewpoint, but without the ideology shoved down your throat.
I agree completely. I’ve been arguing this very point for the last few days: that Zelensky is either in on the plot or he’s going to be replaced by Poroshenko or someone else less cordial to the Russians.
I also agree that the CIA and the neocons are behind this whole thing and that they will not give up or stop trying to get a war unless somehow the mental basket case Biden can rein them in – if he’s even inclined to.
What amazes me is how absolutely no one except Bernhard, Andrei and I see this as a distinct possibility that should be discussed. Literally every other “pundit” on the subject – especially Ray McGovern and Gilbert Doctorow and even Alexander Mercouris – are completely oblivious about all this and assume that the entire crisis is just about Russia and NATO and as long as everyone is “talking” that it will all work out in the end.
As I always say: “That ain’t gonna happen.”
“no one except Bernhard, Andrei and I see this as a distinct possibility”
See what as a distinct possibility?
That a new offensive against Donbass is being organized by the CIA/neocon/Ukraine hardliners, not necessarily by Zelensky himself. In fact, it looks more and more like Zelensky is being tossed on the garbage heap, to be replaced by Poroshenko or someone even worse.
Even Lavrov suggested in his after meeting remarks that no one knows who controls the Ukraine government or the military. And a “senior NATO official” said the same thing, according to an RT report.
My take is that Zelensky is between a rock and a hard spot. He’s got the US/NATO warmongering like mad on one side and then he’s got the neo-Nazis chaffing at the bit to start [continue] killing people. Not seeing how he’s going to be able to distance from BOTH entities. He may have told Biden that if the US keeps pushing war that the neo-Nazis are going to run amok big time and that there will then be ZERO chance of Ukraine being salvaged. THE difference here is that Russia is RIGHT THERE and will utilize any and all forces necessary to repel the US/NATO and or the neo-Nazis. The US/NATO has NO control over the space (unlike in other parts of the globe where Russia has had a presence). The winning hand is held by Russia and everyone knows it. The ONLY question, in my mind, is how does the Ukrainian govt hold back the neo-Nazis. Pretty sure that the US realizes that unleashing these dogs guarantees that Ukraine gets turned into a failed state (and Russia still maintains protection for the people in the Donbas region). It’s a “who blinks first” scenario and the Russians won’t be first.
The US WILL back down. It has no other option: figure there’s a fair amount of push back from Germany and France behind the scenes- lose these two countries and the big unwinding will most certainly ramp up. And when that happens Russia isn’t then far from helping purge the US (and Turkey? and Israel?) from Syria. (this will be with continued approval/support from China, as well as, of course, Iran)
So, Richard, there are two leaders who are tasked (by the realities before them) with reining in groups of people hell-bent on a march to murder: Zelensky and Biden. Biden isn’t going to be serving another term in which case he can self-sacrifice: a Wall Street crash will shut up the neo-cons (CIA will likely have to focus inward as the troops will have to rally to save “capitalism”). No idea on what the possible outcomes would be in store for Zelensky other than averting a war will mean folks won’t completely starve and freeze: Russia will do everything it can to take the high road (and appeal to a greater percentage of Ukraine’s population- neo-Nazis need to get pushed back from their own citizens).
The problem again is that you’re assuming the US wants to keep Ukraine intact. What if they want to sacrifice Ukraine in order to demonize Russia and achieve their other agendas?
As for Biden, he’s either in on the plot or he’s been cut out of the loop by the CIA. Given that he’s using the CIA chief to do his diplomacy these days, it could be either one. Given that Biden keeps repeating the “invasion” bullcrap, I see no evidence that he is inclined to rein in the neocons.
As for the CIA, there are a ton of people in Ukraine who can be manipulated to start a war with or without Zelensky: hard liners, Islamic jihadists, US mercenaries. Both Lavrov and a “senior NATO official” have suggested that no one knows who is in control of the Ukraine government or the army.
Well, now the question seems to be when is Zelenskii going to make his “Yanukovych” run to Russia?
They’ll soon be able to form an ex-presidents club and government-in-exile in a Russian dacha somewhere.
As for Biden — well ZH reports that Elon Musk called him a “damp sock puppet!” — can’t get much lower than that these days.
Minus and all out war scenario, the Biden-Harris duo are headed for the lame-duck mid-term exits and the only question is whether it is Trump 2.0 running for the 2024 and then making peace with Putin as he (Putin) moves towards a back seat ‘retirement’ role.
The “omicon” virus is wearing very thin and people are getting on with living in spite of mass media fear-porn hype. When 11-million (plus) viewers see the likes of Neil Young complaining about Joe Rogan broadcasting honest down-to-earth information by acknowledged experts then we know the show is over — bar the flick-in-the-tail encore etc.
And you are correct, these “we think it was worth it” criminal cabals are literally capable of anything.
Looking forward to the leaks — not that I expect much in the way of history forming/shattering news — but just to see what the gap is between the Nato walk and the US talk etc.
Not long to wait…))
February 4, 2022, Putin – Xi, Beijing.
After today’s Security Council Meeting, Lavrov conducted a very long, complex interview with Sputnik, Echo of Moscow, Govorit Moskva and Komsomolskaya Pravda radio stations. The transcript’s Russian and at page bottom is a link to the video. I parsed those portions that were about the Security Issues and Ukraine in multiple comments at MoA, but haven’t made an article from them yet. Some but not nearly all was a reiteration of remarks and answers to questions he supplied yesterday that I parsed and compiled into this article, “Lavrov Tells Us Part of the Reply”. Having read the interviews, I have a much better understanding of the whole operation that I hope to write-up when the actual answers are leaked.
Zelensky must now watch his back, his food and his drink, for he’s now a target of the Outlaw Anglo Empire, and there’s really only one savior for him–Putin.
Well, if it’s a ‘novichok’ affair we’ll all know it’s MI6. They’re on a run of many consecutive defeats though, so after Navalnii, Belarus, and Kazakh they’ll likely poison the wrong guy. MI6 has become a clown college
“Zelensky must now watch his back, his food and his drink,”
and use a geiger counter in case a small grain of radioactive material, such as is used for industrial radiography, is placed where he sits.
Amusing matter for Brother Z to recall> https://i.pinimg.com/474x/55/65/56/556556fc3bba46f7b8b96f66483850a5–this-man-norway.jpg (Quisling under Partisan arrest…) Higly motivating.
Dr K, Brother Phil the groundhog is said to be moving to Zone B….he may send greeting to pob, is meeting his cousin Ivan at cafe. Best Old Man.
This would make a great TV series.
High drama complete with bromances, three-ways, backstabbing, extortion, payoffs, and a literally unbelievable cast of cartoon characters that are stupider than Homer Simpson.
I assume that Milley and Austin’s warnings about “horrific” civilian casualties in the Ukraine came about because Zelensky has made it clear that he will *not* order the Ukrainian military to launch an attack on the civilians in the Donbass.
So Milley has to go over Zelensky’s head and deliver Washington’s instructions directly to the Azov battalian and the other neo-nazi forces. The only way to do that is via mass-media.
*wink *wink* Horrific civilian casualties *nudge* *nudge*.
Perhaps, and this is some kind of wishful thinking, Ze could ask for some kind of assistance from Russia and Belarus to suppress the Azov units or other neo-nazi forces, if these would launch an independent assault against the Donetsk and Lugansk republics; i guess he could replicate what Assad did in Syria, officially inviting Rusia and Belarus forces along side the loyal ukrainian army to help clean the country from Azov battalions. I know, it is a fantasy scenario but i guess it could save the Ukraina as country.
And could save many people from suffering…
Ze realises the US are using him as the patsy and will leave him to face the music. That music most likely to be hung by the neck in one of Donetsk’s beautiful Parks and to remain their until the body rots or Independence. The EU had advised him strongly to de-escalate so he was left with the Poles and Baltics,
Sleight of hand. Plenty of chatter and waving right hand in front to keep the eyes on that (war in The Ukraine) while real action is going on out of sight with left hand and suddenly “voila” – wow where did that come from? (USA/SDF whacked in Idlib). Could be.
Great work! Really enjoy reading your analyses of things
@Saker re: false flags/espionage
Funny thing about MH17, the evidence actually points to Azov shooting it down, even the texts brought up in court were falsified.
Then you get to Navalny which had MI6 security detail trying to pay for votes, propaganda spam sent to Russians trying to get votes, and then Maria Pevchikh appears to be at the very least a double agent working for MI6, if not a 2nd/3rd generation defector.
She followed Navalny and another woman to same hotel, AND was the one who put gloves on to bring the evidence to authorities. Yet she developed no symptoms a la Skripals case, and has gone into hiding.
Forgive me if this is a bit too tinfoil hat, but you can actually follow the intelligence quite thoroughly.
“She followed Navalny and another woman to same hotel,”
“agents” as long as they perceive themselves to be agents, are often motivated by a spectrum of factors..
Mr. Navalny had problems of keeping his trousers on and keeping his hands in his pockets.
So in respect of his “send off” there were many potential participants but not The Russian Federation, who unlike “The Soviet Union” no longer resort to “honey traps”, the olympic baton being transferred to “The State of Israel” apparently with previous contained in “The Bible” before “Debbie does Dallas”, often passed in other locations whose population and guests like Mr. Navalny had/have problems with keeping their trousers on and their hands in their pockets.
I disagree with pretty much everything in this article (which is rare for me and saker blog articles). I dont think that Ukraine will ever go into NATO, that is not the real issue. The real issue is it hosting US troops and missiles. Also, US desperately wanting war makes no sense to me. They are clearly in control of the situation. Or, at least, both eventualities (war or peace) are win-win for them. Russia is probably stronger that close to her border than US, but if they dont intend to use that military advantage, it means nothing. They must do something now when pressed this issue, or would be ridiculed by the west after some time. I dont see neocons panic, they seem confused and scrambling, but that effect will pass very soon. False flag operations were not implemented bcs of panic-those are deliberate smearing tactics towards Russians as a whole, to demonise them.
In short, Russia will obviosly do nothing of big importance-arming LDNR is probably biggest thing that will happen-irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.
Ze never intended (from the start) to invade the Donbass. Maintaining high tensions instead of good neighborly relations with Russia pays off: Ze recently received 1.2 bn euro aid from the EU. He needs 5 bn euro more according to this news bulletin:
//Ukrainian economy has basically collapsed, now needing 5 billion USD just to stabilize it. Ukrainian officials have blamed “western fake news” about Russian invasion, which Ukraine states daily “is not imminent”.//
The UK/US intelligence + NeoCons want and will provoke a war by means of a false flag cyber attack on Kiev and subsequently a US-only (independent from Nato) invasion of Kiev to provide a security racket, their goal is to try to lure a Russian invasion all the way up to the Dniepr river, if Russia does not respond then Ukraine becomes a de facto member of Nato (or a Nato occupation). The best thing for Russia is to respond in the Middle East: give help to Syria and Iran against Israel.
Looks like the German intelligence are in on it too. The BND was created from the remnants of the Gestapo and other Nazis. They were most famously involved with the Iraqi WMD narrative. The BND is a defacto branch of US intelligence.
Why would US want Russian invasion??? To enact sanctions?? They can do it without invasion,makes no sense. To collapse Russia by forcing it to spend on Ukraine???? Russia would be forced to spend on it regardkess if it regains control over it. So choice is- failing Ukraine in western orbit with sanctions or recovering Ukraine as part of Russia with sanctions.
NeoCons goal is to create a new Berlin Wall (or an Iron Curtain) with the Dniepr being the boundary, their other option is WW3.
P.S. to the Moderator: Where are my other comments?
comments are to discuss ideas and events of the day and not to express opinions about other commentators .. they have been sent to saker for review … mod
My point exactly. They already created it,why would they panic? And if their goal is war, then the Russians are walking into a trap if they attack; if Russians dont attack, the west dont need Ukie army to mount some sort of attack-they could use their right wing sector nacists or special forces undercoverly like in Macedonia few years ago.
Meh…all those theories in the article seem far fetched to me. I think that they already achieved what they want-iron curtain+bleeding of Russian strength that cannot be redirected towards other points. They are afraid of war vs Nato,not war in Ukraine. They dont care about that war,they created win-win for them either way
They haven’t created the Iron Curtain, yet.
s+s+s+s, remember which events preceded the last time the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain was erected?!
The likelyhood for a WW3 in a relatively short term is almost 100%. There still is a small chance it won’t happen. I was waiting for this event to happen since 2010, that was not a nice decade for me knowing WW3 would happen.
“that was not a nice decade for me knowing WW3 would happen”
And yet world war didn’t break out. Wouldn’t it have been better to think war wasn’t going break out? Or that other people had the same feeling as you and hence there would be a force preventing a major war to happen? Wouldn’t it be better to have this thought now?
My opinion still is that a world war is unlikely to happen anytime soon. This doesn’t mean a local, geographically limited war cannot happen.
“Looks like the German intelligence are in on it too. The BND was created from the remnants of the Gestapo and other Nazis.”
“The BND is a defacto branch of US intelligence”, as periodically are “criminals” who like “intelligence agencies” depend on coercive social relations for sustainability, as the “agreement” between “The United States of America” and Mr. Luciano is but one example.
That is a component of why “The United States of America” are a complex of coercive social relations not to be conflated with a temporary geo-political construct of the same name.
BND is/has been one of “the United States of America” from inception, but the inception was not an “immaculate conception/virgin birth”, but a trajectory from the efforts of the two Mr. Dulles’ legal practices in Sullivan and Cromwell – the pratices subsequently futher developed by Boston Consulting and agents such as Mr. Perkins and other economic hit men – , following the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, via the connections through Swiss intelligence/Swiss banking and Mr. Allen Dulles associated with “US intelligence” during “Second World War” facilitating “Operation Sunrise”, the surrender agreements Mr. Allen Dulles reached with the SD represented by Mr. Karl Wolff in the Bolzano region on or about 4th May 1945,, and the repatriation of funds derived from the Third Reich, including gold rendered from teeth and other confiscations, to finance the “Wirtschaftwunder” – “German Economic Miracle” and although the “audit trail” has not yet been wholly explored – part of the benificence of “The United States of America” known as the Marshall plan.
From inceptions there have been inherent contradiction between the BND and the FDR (West Germany), including the remnants of different sectoral differences of purpose carried forward from the Kaiser Reich 1871 – 1918 including the “anti-Catholic” Kulturkampf, that in “Soviet times” some exploited through the co-operation of the GDR; competition regularly facilitating opportunities to others to transcend capitalism.
These contretempts are increasing in Germany by the moderated usual subjects for the usual moderated purposes.
Mr. Lenin observed that “Capitalists sell you the rope with which to hang them” whilst his practices emulated practices of “Capitalism” particularly in political economic matters subsequently expanded by Mr Stalin – examples including, but not limited to, primary/”primitive” accumulation through slavery (the Gulag) the role of some former people during “War Communism” prior to the establishment of “the Soviet Union” re-introduced from the mid 1930’s until circa 1954 as Mr. Tupolev and the former Prince Yegorov could attest if still alive, and the adoption of “Taylorism”.and creation of fantatists sometimes known as Gosplan.
These are included in the reasons of why “The Soviet Union” never posed an “existential threat” to “The United States of America” since “The Soviet Union” was a part clone of “The United States of America”, a process that Messrs Cohen and Mearsheimer designated in the 1960’s and subsequent as “convergence”, and one of the bases of detente on the bases of “spheres of influence” – a component the get-out-of-jail cards of “The United States of America” from 1969 onwards.
Just for accuracy, the CIA and later the BND obtained all their intelligence about the USSR from Hitler’s top intelligence operative Reinhardt Gehlen (until the 1970s). The BND was originally called the Gehlen org. To say that the BND is an American operation is to acknowledge that the CIA is a German Nazi operation – currently with much more money.
“the BND obtained all their intelligence about the USSR from Hitler’s top intelligence operative Reinhardt Gehlen (until the 1970s). The BND was originally called the Gehlen org.”
Mr. Gehlen did present himself as “Hitler’s top intelligence operative of the USSR and was accepted as such by CIC and CIA referring to to him as head of the Gehlen Org.
Mr. Gehlen was like others including Mr. Brzezinsky making a pitch in changed circumstances – a jouneyman plying his “trade” in changed circumstances.
Mr. Gehlen’s network provided some of the “assets” used in Anglo American rollback strategies with aspects of settler colonialist functions not to the extent of General Plan Ost which had failed, hence the availability of others including Mr. Gehlen for new employment opportunities, primarily implemented by others in the Baltic States, Russian SSR and Ukraine SSR from circa 1947 until 1954 by which time they were rolled back by the KGB and others, since the “intelligence” provided by the Gehlen org was not fit for purpose.
There after Mr. Gehlen’s services primarily being retained in a banner/ceremonial capacity, and the orientation of the BDN changed to “intelligence work” within the FDR and to a lesser extent the GDR.
“To say that the BND is an American operation is to acknowledge that the CIA is a German Nazi operation – currently with much more money.”
You mis-interpret the following sentence probably as a function of your framing of relative agency/significance.
“That is a component of why “The United States of America” are a complex of coercive social relations not to be conflated with a temporary geo-political construct of the same name.”
BND is and remains a component state of “The United States of America”, and hence the continuing contradictions between BND and The Federal Republic of Germany including varying sectors within The Federal Republic of Germany, since one of the main goals of the BND is control of The Federal Republic of Germany.
NATO is also a component state of “The United States of America” whose main purpose is to expand the component states of “The United States of America” – it was never a defensive alliance except in the beliefs of useful fools – whilst retaining the illusion of cooperative relations between “sovereign states” with the aid of local comparadors, criminals and “intelligence services” via “colour revolutions”, a prototype design for “internal purposes” being implemented by the Second Department of the Second Polish Republic to facilitate the incorporation of components such as Galicia and Wolyn in the Second Polish Republic 1919-1939 – a settler colonial construct which was modified to limit “settler” requirements,whilst increasing “rat lines” for wider implementation, adopted by others post 1945 in various locations including South Africa, North America and “South America”.
The use of the conflation of “The United States of America” with a temporary geo-political construct of the same name, is a deflection of the questions ” What are the United States of America and how are they facilitated ?” in the hope of obfuscating “How to’s” to facilitate their transcendence.
“The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland” does not have, and has never had a “special relationship” with “The United States of America”, whilst de facto the security agencies including BND, MI5, MI6 are component states of “The United States of America”, the illumination of which was partly facilitated by a notion of intent being delivered to some who misrepresented this as an ultimatum in the hope of sustaining illusions of “their populations”in regard to “What are the United States of America and how are they facilitated ?”
If I may, I would like to point out to you that the man’s name behind Moon of Alabama is Bernhard, not Bernard which is the English version of the German name. And yes, I very much agree that Bernhard’s latest piece is an excellent analysis.
I too have thought along his line of thinking about President Zelenski. In fact, it is pretty obvious that the U.S. has been pulling the strings in Ukraine every since they completed their five billion dollar coup d’etat. Now, that Zelenski realizes the ugly game the Empire is playing, he is all but obsolete. The evil of the U.S. players is amazing and depressing, but their time is up…. and that is the light at the end of this very long tunnel.
The Ukrainians do not even have to pull off any false flag. They could just blow up civilian infrastructure on Novorussian territory without leaving any trace of who did it. Basically just a provocation if it can be pulled pulled off successfully. The Novorussians would be left humiliated or they could retaliate in the open, in which case they would get the blame for starting the war the West so desperately wants.
Related, are the Novorussians on the look out, so to speak, for any signs of Ukrainian tunnel building underneath the front lines?
The simple solution to all this is arrest and deal with those at the top behind all this.
The military in US UK Germany France etc must move to end this ongoing madness.
Then cooperation and productive processes can take place for centuries.
Soros and his associates in the US need action asap.
Per my other comment –
The precedent for taking action against the corrupt evil forces has already been set long long ago………
When Julius Caesar took action to remove the aristocratic Roman Senate* in 49 BC.
(* who like to today wanted to concentrate power and wealth in their hands and were oppressing their people).
What would Washington, Cromwell and De Gaulle have done ?
Whoa! Slow down. These are not those good old days.
They would be suicide orders now, at least in the large metropolises that count..
We are in the age of urban concrete jungles, atomized disunity among neighbors, and reliant on food and fuel logistics oceans away.
We would be easy pickings, see how they humor us, allowing protests to occasionally vent.
How could we even obtain strategic/ operational leadership, when top brass layers are either bribed, ideologically on board with the satanists, or degenerates with blackmail control files?
The lower levels are weak ahistorical yesmen without a clue or even training for this task, and with the most intelligent and patriotic long purged. Not to mentioned confused with a lot of estrogen and nanoparticles in their system.
And even if a small resistance could be cobbled together, do they have a chance against highly-paid, trained and drugged mercenary legions of former SOF and stormtrooper operatives on standby (think Blackwater etc) who are foaming at the mouth for this shoot the fish in the barrel opportunity? Western militaries spend a lot of their time and energy planning and gaming against insurrections, that is what the fearful illegitimate do. And use techniques they honed in Iraq, Syria, the Congo etc etc.
There may be hope in the countryside, among close knit self sufficient and well armed folks, although there’re risks there too.
The US are saying we can put bases and missiles on your doorstep a few minutes flight time from Moscow thereby threatening your security and there is nothing you can do about it, but if you put bases in Argentina [which is over 5,000 miles from the US border then we [the US] will act decisively.
United States National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan responded, “noting that Russian military activity in Latin America had not been a point of discussion at recent security talks, but said that the US would act “decisively” if it did happen” https://www.rt.com/russia/547417-putin-military-plans-cuba/ ‘ This hypocrisy has to be brought up again and again until the stupidest people in the world can see it, [I’m looking at your government Biden especially Blinken and Nuland.]
You hit it perfectly, Andrei. The empire is in panic. I have said it here before, Russia is currently being rules by expert Tao masters. They using the strength of the enemy against the enemy. That is one fact the West doesn’t seem to understand. If you live either in the Baltic or the Nordic countries you would be sorry for their docile population, most of who are still stuck in the glory of the past West.
Has this ever been addressed here on The Saker website?
Klaus Schwab in 2017: “Merkel, Putin, Trudeau were WEF Young Global Leaders” https://adarapress.com/2022/01/26/klaus-schwab-in-2017-merkel-putin-trudeau-were-wef-young-global-leaders/
If it is true that Putin was one of the World Economic Forum Young Global Leaders, I would like to know if The Saker views this is significant. Wouldn’t this make Putin just another WEF puppet, the likes of Merkel, Trudeau, Jacinda, Megan Rapanoe (the pink haired US soccer player) and at least one BLM founder?
Can anyone comment on this based on knowledge of the situation?
So “Carol” is this the latest US Psyop – Putin is a WEF agent? As Saker has clearly stated above:
“…..The US PSYOP about Putin being weak, indecisive or a puppet of the USA/Israel (I explained the nature, function and purpose of this CIA PSYOP in details here) is falling apart…..”.
Whether this is true or not – has VVP since he became President done anything to destroy his country? weaken it? No! He has saved his country, taken it by the boot straps and made it strong again in every sphere.
IMHO – if and only if he was at the young global leader (which I very much doubt) training – it was probably to learn and observe who else was there and learn about what they were doing. Remember he was KGB/FSB. Just something you should bear in mind.
Not being one would also explain why the West attack and attack him all the time, lie about him and try to destroy him – because he hasn’t done what they wanted or expected but followed the path of protecting and developing his country – Russia. No wonder they are incandescent with rage
Well, I don’t know how in with the WEF Russia is, but Russia and Putin have been in line with the WEF covid goals of masking, vaccination and QR code passports, which has been unpopular with the Russian people and failing worldwide. Arguably the same for “climate” agendas. But Russia is more restrained compared to certain Western nations. The Duma recently decided against federal standardization of vaccine passports. However, local government in places like St. Petersburg still reportedly enforce it. And certain government jobs also require it. This is easily verifiable from Russian sources and Putin’s own public statements.
Western propaganda instead tries to paint Russia as siding with and instigating anti-vaxx sentiment and “misinformation”. The Canadian propaganda media is playing this tune right now.
Putin could just be engaging with them for the bear minimum as the WEF does have globalist clout so it is not avoidable anymore than the G-Summits with whom Putin will still shake hands with hostile “partners.” That said, it is still troubling that Russia continues these WEF policies past the initial assumedly cautionary phase.
Could be why a week after Crimea rejoined Russia, Jacob Rothschild said ” Vladimir Putin has betrayed The New World Order” and promptly every UK mass media started a hate Putin and Russia campaign. Now it makes sense why Rothschild used the word “betrayed”.
Carol – this conversation is now closed. You have made your point. It is off-topic. It seems to be just another MSM US/Israel psycop about Putin. The Saker has already pointed this out above about psycops. Any further of your comments will go to the trash. Mod.
“…What?? Is that really CNN?…”
Yes, it is. It looks like they are beginning to think a bit beyond the fog of war hysteria they have created. Here is another CNN headline today,
“How a Russian invasion of Ukraine would reverberate around the world”
“London (CNN)The prospect of an imminent Russian invasion of Ukraine has heightened alarm in the region, threatening to plunge the country’s 44 million inhabitants further into the grips of conflict.
But a move by the Kremlin would also ripple far beyond the two nations’ shared border.
Experts fear it could usher in a new era of uncertainty in eastern Europe, disrupt supply chains and the global economy, and force a shift in geopolitical influence that damages the credibility of the West…”
“…and force a shift in geopolitical influence that damages the credibility of the West…”
Oh, they are concerned about their “credibility,” which is close to zero, nil, nada, all Russians are doing is exposing their absolute lack of it.
“…If an incursion does occur, it is unclear what form it would take — and predicting the intentions of Russian President Vladimir Putin is a notoriously unwise exercise.
“Any contemporary warfare would be horrifying, but there are gradations to the horror,” said Nigel Gould-Davies, a former British ambassador to Belarus who is now senior fellow for Russia and Eurasia at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) think tank…”
“…Russia and the West have disagreed so fundamentally on worldview and that fundamental disagreement has been swept under the carpet for years,” added James Nixey, director of the Russia-Eurasia program at London-based think tank Chatham House.
“Now Russia has decided it’s going to up the ante,” he said. “It is a real-world problem that has global implications…”
“…The economic fallout of an invasion is wrought with unknowns, but there are several possible knock-on effects that have worried experts since the buildup of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border first became clear.
Most directly, a disruption to Ukraine’s agricultural production could have a direct impact on food supply.
The country is one of the world’s four major grain exporters — it is expected to account for around a sixth of the world’s corn imports in the next five years, according to projections by the International Grains Council — so a direct hit to its production and output could impact the supply of certain foodstuffs.
But more concerning is the wider potential impact on energy supplies, and the consequences of tough Western sanctions on Russia that would be expected after an incursion.
“If you’re talking about a major conflict [involving] one of the biggest energy suppliers in the world — and a major transit country to the rest of Europe — then there can’t not be significant impacts on energy markets,” Gould-Davies said…”
“…Analysts generally expect a wide-ranging package of sanctions that could hit major Russian banks, the oil and gas sector, and technology imports. But the effects on Europe and the rest of the world would be felt, too.
“Any time you impose sanctions, you impose great costs on the target — but you also have the risk of blowback harms on yourself and on your friends and allies,” said Nathan Sales, an acting undersecretary for civilian security, democracy, and human rights at the US State Department during the Trump administration…”
Funny they start their list of concerns with “the credibility of the West,” then the “horrors” of a war with Russia, to “fundamental world-view” differences between Russia and the West swept under the rug for long time, next, economy and energy crisis, and last, blowback from sanctions. Their priorities are upside down, IMHO.
Regardless, are they beginning to think, you think? Can there be any hope they are beginning to see the potential consequences of their reckless actions with Russia? Are they now visualizing the real blowback of a war with Russia? We certainly hope so, but we won’t bet on it. Russia is not going to put up with their bullshit anymore, that is clear. Time to put them where they belong, the trash bin of history.
404 delenda est!
I agree and I disagree. What impresses me abut the Russian tactics the most is that it plays a very flexible game, designed to create max confusion about its future steps, and thus deepen the splits in both the “Alliance”, and Ukraine. Clearly, Russia is committed to intervene in Ukraine, but how is anyone’s guess (even Vladimir Solovyov’s). The intervention need not be military – which is the best option for everyone. There seems to even an opening for Zelensky, to save whatever face he has left with the Russia-friendly majority of Ukrainians but for him to go to Russia to negotiate, someone has to control the SBU, the MIA (its paramilitary units) and the streets from the Banderista’s crazies. And that seems a long shot given that the security organs were the first coming under the complete control of fanatical nationalists from Lvov after the Maidan putsch (actually they orchestrated it). If enough pressure could be put on them – perhaps by factions the VSU – they may be provoked into some stupid banzai “offensive” in the East, at which point the inevitable will happen – a Maidan counter-coup. Again, my guess is that Russia’s hope is that the hostilities start as an internal conflict, into which they can ride in as “peacekeepers”.
There is a very high probability that Ukrainian special forces will be coordinating false-flag attacks, possibly involving miniaturised nuclear weapons, on their own subjects, in conjunction with their overseers in the Five Eyes, Turkey, and Israel.
A fake “Russian” insurgency and/or invasion will be staged, complete with false press releases, rumours, and actual sabotage orchestrated as part of a military exercise and/or drill.
Anti-Russian forces will masquerade as Russian, adopting LPR/DPR and/or Russian uniform, using Russian weaponry supplied by NATO, and so on.
These attacks, up to and including cyber and/or involving WMD, will be combined with a coup vs. Zelensky that is blamed on Russian pressure and, in conjunction with a simulated crisis, provide the impetus and/or cover for full-scale, preferably covert, NATO-led assistance to Ukraine, including actual placement of nuclear-capable intermediate-range ballistic missiles, along with actual NATO troops, on Ukrainian soil, as part of a prelude to a surprise nuclear attack on Moscow.
Perhaps illusion may be a better word to use?
“As part of a prelude to a surprise nuclear attack on Moscow.”
An illusion based on ignorance of the current nuclear weapons doctrine and dispositions of the Russian Federation.
Nuclear winter was understood in principle from at least 1984 by an increasing sum of some, but by a limited number from 1965 to 1969, and one of the reasons for the opponents increasing orientation towards “integrated colour revolutions” “road tested” intially in Hawaii during the 1880’s and subsequently rolled out in other “climes” by other “states” – “The Spanish American War” and The Struggles for Africa” refers , although earlier versions were followed from 1520 or so to facilitate the slave trade and hence in some form or other from inception, “The United States of America” have relied on playbooks/copybooks.
It also informed the use of chemical weapons in Vietnam and elsewhere.
Here is the Russian speaker about the City of London and the Brexit. Translation in French though. https://lesakerfrancophone.fr/le-brexit-et-si-la-city-etait-pour-jm-vernochet-valerie-Bugault
I don’t think that US cares if it’s strategy to provoke war succeeds or not.
Like always, Americans are throwing feces at the wall to see if it sticks or not. Problem is, again as before, no one is throwing any feces back. Either way, US keeps its hold over Europe and slows down Russia’s gas pipeline to Germany. It is win-win situation for the US, Russia is always defending, always reacting to their moves.
And if they succeed to make Winter Olympic games in Beijing meaningless, then that is just another manure that stuck to the wall.
So I really don’t get what’s positive for Russia here, or for the world.
I’ve read unsubstantiated rumours, that the white house is going to start leaking that Zelensky is unreliable and may be soft on Russia, and there is talk he may have chance/brief meeting with Putin in Beijing.
If the American dirty tricks rumour is true, and the porential meeting is true, he’s toast. If tge 2nd rumour is false, they’re giving the neo nazis an excuse to attack/remove Zelensky, or trap him into a corner because he’ll know what’s coming if he doesn’t follow orders.
He must be in a highly stressful situation.
All internet rumours of course, can’t verify anything.
Expect the imminent invasion of Taiwan. No computer chips for the west. Suckers are all in Europe threatening Russia.
40 important people in Germany have to published a letter saying Germany should not be subservient to nato policy but reduce tensions.
Canada’s Foreign Minister goes to EUkraine tomorrow with a message that involves Canada’s “unwavering support” for as stupid as they can get.
Maybe some more money.
And a promise that ‘nothing is off the table’ – including preemptive sanctions for Russia’s ” failure to disengage”. Somebody smart has invented a new ‘red line’ for NATO. And Canada has been chosen to define it.
They’re playing ‘good co- bad cop’ with no idea of how that works and without having figured out who’s playing what. NATO isn’t going to go to war like that, even if they were drinking . The Russians have to be wondering if they’ve haven’t been exposed to more, non-toxic Novichok.
Putin doesn’t have to do a damned thing. He could ‘interfere’ somewhere else or, better still, help another ‘bad actor’ to do that.
Zelenski isn’t going to take the chance in another military drubbing. Cripples don’t look so good on Army Day and he will be the one to blame.
Paul Craig Roberts is of the opinion that “Biden’s” push for war has been checkmated. I sure hope that he is correct. It looks like if there is a false flag attack against the Ukraine it will be the work of the neocons as Andrei points out. If they execute a false flag will the Ukraine government buy into it and assign blame to the separatists or will they rightly concur it was the act of the neocons?
If the former will then they will probably attack the Donbass in retaliation. If the former then what will they do?
“In fact, I think that the US is basically dumping country 404 aka Banderastan”
Another scenario? Not necessarily about dumping the country but maybe going to make it worse with more extreme elements?
Does this mean the US/UK planning false flag in Kiev during Olympics?
Let’s face it, somebody here made the assertion that it’s entirely possible Zelensky scammed war funds from NATO. It was certainly a huge payday, and impossible not to ignore.
He needs ~5 bln USD more to get Ukraine into a somewhat livable state, provided the corrupt don’t steal the funds right from under him.
“There has been no organized effort to keep government down since Jefferson’s day. Ever since then the American people have been bolstering up its powers and giving it more and more jurisdiction over their affairs. They pay for that folly in increased taxes and diminished liberties.” ~ H. L. Mencken
