You know about the Great Wall of China, right? But have you ever heard of the Great Western Wall?
That is the immense wall which was built around the minds of the people of the West for the past 1000 or so years. I will try to describe it using a few salient examples, but what I want to clearly state here is that these examples are only some I chose, but in reality, there are millions of them and they constitute a kind of “mental force field” which has (almost) no holes in it. Until now. But let’s first start with a few examples of what that wall looks like and how those enclosed by it think:
- Say what you wish, or don’t say it, but everybody knows and understands that the so-called Western civilization (which in this narrative was not born from the Middle-Ages, but from Antiquity) is superior to all others. Oh sure, we will pay lip service to the liberal ideas of Rousseau or the Woke insanity, but deep inside, we are the best, we will eventually prevail, and nobody can match, nevermind, beat us.
- Russians are racially and culturally inferior. Oh sure, they are mostly white, but they act like Mongols (something quite terrible in the average western mind which knows *nothing* about the Mongol Empire, this is even true on the UK Ministerial level!!!). They are either soaking their brains with vodka, or they are planning devious and bloody attacks on the irenic and noble people of the West. The term I suggest for them would be Russians are “Snow Niggers“.
- The Snow Niggers control way too much land and resources. We need to bring them true democracy.
- Russians have never known democracy, so they don’t even have the concept of “freedom”: true, we don’t really understand the distinction they make between “svoboda” and “volia” anymore than we understand the distinction between “pravda” and “istina” – but who cares, they don’t think like we do, therefore their concepts are irrelevant.
- Russians cannot be trusted. Ever. Ask any of the people who neighbor Russia and they will tell you how horrible it was to live under Russian rule. The fact that Russians (unlike the West) never committed genocide and that there are still 193 ethnic groups and over 100 languages in Russia herself is irrelevant. The fact that not a single successor republic to the USSR became stable and viable – except Russia, that is – also irrelevant. All that Russians do is murder, rape, pillage and persecute everybody else, especially “gays”!
- Russians have always used stupid tactics, they always throw a huge amount of poorly trained soldiers but animalistically stubborn/courageous at any enemy. During WWII, the German military was vastly superior to the Soviet one and the German generals eons ahead of the rather dull Soviet ones, especially in tactics and operational warfare. Germany only lost WWII thanks to the US and UK and their superb military academies. Any Soviet victory is explained by “Stalin’s terror”, of course. Then these brutes went on a raping spree and created a giant Gulag while US forces only delivered chocolate and cool music to the poor Europeans, including the Germans. Then the US generously rebuilt western Europe. End of story.
- We have the best military in the world, with the best equipment and training. The fact that we spend more on defense than the entire planet is the proof of that. We also have the best intelligence community in the world, the fact that we have 17 “intelligence” agencies while others typically do with just a few (2-4 is typical) just further proves our infinite superiority (by some estimates, the total “peace budget” of the USA, combining military, intelligence and contractors is over a TRILLION per year!).
- The entire world envies us – that is why we are the #1 destination for immigrants from all over the world. Even the fact that we have by far the biggest penitentiary network on the planet, and one of the most barbarically brutal ones at that, does not deter these immigrants. Clearly, the world loves us!
Trust me, I could go on for pages and pages. I lived my entire life in the West, I was born in the middle of Europe (in Switzerland) and I lived about half of my life in Europe and half in the USA. I am fluent in 5 western languages and understand quite a few more others (related ones, of course). I have two US graduate degrees. I know the West. Most westerners who met me initially did not know of my origins, so they treated me like “one of them” until I mentioned my Russian roots, at which point their attitude immediately changed: “careful, he is one of them” was written all over their faces.
And, OF COURSE, there were (plenty) of exceptions to what I describe above. But these exceptions were never numerous or influential enough to make a difference: Western countries always elect rabid russophobes: they all equally hate and fear Russia, they just express it in different manners. So those westerners who do not live behind the Great Western Wall have made no difference, especially no difference to us, the Asiatic Snow Niggers.
Again, all this has been going on for close to a thousand years, but something has changed recently and stuff like this began to happen:
And by “this” I don’t mean an F-35 missing its landing on a carrier and splashing into the water. No, that F-35 is a perfect metaphor for the entire western civilization.
- Official version: the F-35 is the most amazing military aircraft ever designed
- True version: the F-35 is the most overpriced piece of semi-airborne shit in world history
Notice, corruption plays THE key role here.
Say what you want, but a country which designed and produced the F-16, the F-5, the A-10 or the breathtakingly beautiful Boeing 747 can produce superb aircraft. And while all the US ‘stealth’ aircraft are overpriced and over-hyped, the F-35 is truly a masterpiece of corruption. There is nothing the many extremely talented US scientists and engineers could do to beat the most corrupt people on the planet: the US ruling elites. And, for the latter, the F-35 is a total, absolute, success. I would even call it a triumph.
A personal recollection now: while a student in the USA, I had military force planning classes, taught by a VERY sharp USAF Colonel (who also worked for the Northrop YF-23 program). His classes were a masterpiece each time. One day, we did something funny. We made a graph with, on one hand, the average cost of each new US fighter aircraft and, on the other, the money allocated for their acquisition. Then we projected both curves and the result was quite hilarious, but also unforgettable: we saw that there would come a time when the entire US military budget would be just enough to produce only ONE, but very super dooper bestest of the bestest in the history of the galaxy fighter! One! Sadly, I do not remember what date we came up with, but I would argue that the F-35 is the real-world illustration of what our (tongue in cheek) graphic showed (BTW – the Lockheed YF-22 was inferior in design to the Northrop YF-23, the choice for the Lockheed candidate was made solely on political grounds: not to give it all the kickbacks to Northrop basically).
The year 1990 was the year when the YF-22/YF-23 made their first flight. That same year, the Snow Niggers flew a modified version of the Soviet Su-27, called the SU-34, for the first time. In my strictly personal opinion, the Su-34 is the single most formidable all-weather supersonic medium-range fighter-bomber/strike aircraft ever produced in Russia or elsewhere. The fact that this design (originally based on a Soviet-era Su-27 interceptor) not only survived the horrific 90s when Russia was “democratic”, but has now fully matured to the absolutely amazing Su-34M version, shows how truly superb Soviet designers and engineers were even in the years of “Commie stagnation” under Brezhnev & Co. This is what this true masterpiece looks like:
You can read about its capabilities here or, better, watch this video. Check out its actual characteristics, and it will blow your mind!
No, it ain’t “stealth”, but its formidable EW, avionics, missiles and radar negate the need for any F-22 like RCS. And it sure is a big aircraft (think range and payload here). But its capabilities are absolutely formidable, no other aircraft comes even close, not even current 5th generation ones, especially to the (much improved) current Su-34M version (which is still very much a 4th generation aircraft, but which does not need the full 5th generation capabilities to execute its missions, that is where the 4++ generation Su-30M2 and Su-35S would be used, or, if needed, the 5th generation Su-57.
I do not intend this post to be a comparison of the YF-22/YF-23/F-35 with the Su-34 or any other aircraft.
But I will ask a rhetorical question: why is it that the USA, the sole world superpower (especially after 1991 and the fall of the USSR) and world leader in everything produced such a piece of shit (aka “flying brick”) as the F-35, while the vodka soaked Asiatic Snow Niggers, while undergoing a truly apocalyptic phase like the 90s (TWO civil wars in Chechnia, one in Moscow in 93) produced a masterpiece like the Su-34?
And here we see the formidable power of The Great Western Wall! That rhetorical question will be treated in any combination of the following ways:
- Dismissed as “Putin propaganda”
- Dismissed as factually incorrect (the correct version being: ours is SO MUCH better)
- Simply ignored, blocked from anybody’s awareness
- Explained by “the Russians steal all our secrets” whereas we invent real things (since the F-35 is actually largely based on the (much better!) Russian Yak-141, this is an especially funny argument to make).
- “Specialists” will declare that the Su-34 is based on primitive and old technologies while the F-35 is the bleeding edge of aeronautics (which is false, but if it was true, these idiots are too stupid to realize what this statement implies about the intelligence and experience of actual warfare of each party!)
- The same pseudo-experts will also fail to realize (or, at least, admit) that while the US MIC produced that abomination which the F-35 is, the Russians have just produced a similar aircraft, the Su-75, which has none of the flaws of the F-35, has broadly similar capabilities and for a small fraction of the F-35 criminally obscene price tag.
Western kids can peacefully sleep at night knowing that they are still part of the Master Race and that they are defended by Captain Murica style hyper-warriors with hyper-gadgets who can, and will, kick any Snow Niggers’ ass if needed! Yeah!
Sweet dreams :-)
But, seriously, why did I post all this stuff about US vs Soviet/Russian aircraft?
Just to illustrate the huge, immense, breathtaking difference between what I call Zone A and Zone B, the Great Western Wall being the monumental propagandist masterpiece which, at least so far, has kept the two Zones apart (the Zones themselves were originally a geographical category, but this is now changing, so let’s think of them as also a mental category).
(Truism alert!!) We live in the age of the Internet, the ubiquitous smartphones (with excellent cameras!), the social media and too many ways to connect for any wall to stand, including the Great Western Wall! Reality is now slowly seeping under, over, and even through this mental Great Wall and that has two main effects:
- It puts the western ruling classes into a total, abject, panic mode
- It stirs up doubts about the veracity of the Western propaganda machine in the heads of the western people (which only doubles the panic felt by the western ruling classes).
What recently happened in Kabul is just about the perfect illustration of how the Western Great Wall is collapsing before our eyes.
What about Putin and his ultimatum in all this?
In truth, the Russian ultimatum’s main goal was never to get the western Master Race to agree to negotiate with the drunken Snow Niggers, it was to bring down a major segment of the Western Great Wall: the West’s arrogant sense of axiomatic military superiority and narcissistic sense of impunity. For decades we were fed a diet about how totally incredible the US and even NATO militaries were (forget about Iraq or Afghanistan!) and how the Russian bear was really only a paper tiger. Just like the F-35 is the “bestest of the bestest” and the Su-34 “primitive” (we could also build it, we just don’t wanna).
Then why are the Snow Niggers not terrified of our “sanctions from hell” or “bestest militaries in the world”??
Why are our beloved (or maybe not so beloved) leaders so freaked out and clueless about what to do?
Could it be that reality is gradually achieving what scientists call “first contact” with the Western rulers and the serfs they rule over?
I will conclude with a question: what will it take to totally bring down that Western Great Wall?
The Su-34 sure did not do it.
How about the Su-34 as just one example, a tip of a huge iceberg if you wish, of what has happened in the entire Russian armed forces?
Nope. 99% of folks in the West still have NO IDEA WHATSOEVER that Russia can defeat both the US and NATO, even together, and that China is catching up at a phenomenal rate.
How about the total collapse of the western economies which have nowhere to “grow into” (by that they mean: “occupy a defenseless country and enslave them by trading valuable resources for worthless plastic beads”)?
Nope, not yet. Not while much of the world still purchase dollars.
Now about the total collapse of the EU’s energy hallucinations (aka Greta Thunberg)?
Nope! EU officials want to, I kid you not, sanction *Russia* by committing energetic and, therefore, economic suicide. In Russia, we call that “scaring a hedgehog with a naked butt“.
So what about this Russian saying “those who refuse to talk to Lavrov will have to talk to Shoigu“.
Will anybody pay attention and realize what is going on?
But I am afraid that the drunken Snow Niggers will have to bring down that damned Western Great Wall, brick by brick, dollar by dollar, and even bullet by bullet (missile by missile would be more accurate).
But, don’t worry. The drunken Snow Niggers won’t genocide you. They are too “primitive” and “Asiatic” for that.
But neither will they pay much attention to you or take you seriously until you finally wake up from your 1000 years of self-delusion based on murderous ideologies and violence.
Russia’s future is on her south (Caucasus, Central Asia, Middle-East, Indian Sub.) east (Far East Asia) and north (Arctic).
I have no idea where the future of the West is.
But the issue is not how the west sees Russia, it is (as you add) how the US sees the US and its denial.
I’m hoping the future of the West is China, but it might take a few decades until the shortage of Iphones and TV screens brings people around.
Actually, here is how I see the future of the West, but in the LONG term:
The EU will be ditched, replaced by sovereign countries along the Berlin-Moscow-Beijing axis.
Iran will run the entire Middle-East.
The USA will become a “normal”, but major and powerful, country
But its the “in between now and then time” which truly terrifies me.
@ Hi saker
How do you foresee the US maintaining its relevancy? At the back of Latin America still? Since, the US in itself does not posses any major natural resources outside of oil.
Do you foresee Latin America stirring East as well?
At the back of Latin America still?
God no! Absolutely not. I said a *normal* country, like, say, Brazil, not a country which needs to feed like a parasite on its neighbors or violently keep a comprador elite in power.
Outside their truly satanic ruling elites, the USA have lots of good, decent and often very smart people. Lots of natural resources, including two great oceans. They face no threat from their neighbors (especially once they become *normal* and not aggressively paranoid) and there is still A LOT of wealth here. The USA also has some superb authors, composers, artists, maybe not in Hollywood or Broadway, but they exist. The Appalachian music scene is fantastic, and there still are some amazing Jazz musicians here.
We focus too much on the evils of US capitalism just as we focused too much on the evils of Soviet communism. But beneath these very real evils, here are many beautiful humans, both in the USA and in the USSR (or today Russia).
Yes, the USA will all knew died on Jan 6th. The AngloZionist Empire almost exactly a year prior. We can let these two corpses stink and decay, but we should never forget that out of that decay a new, very different, international order and a very new and different kind of USA will emerge. Maybe several, actually.
A normal USA will be a normal neighbor to all of the Americas, from Nunavut to Ushuaia.
Either that, or a nuclear wasteland.
Tertium non datur
The US died long before Jan. 6. Some would say as far back as 1963, when JFK was assassinated.
Thanks for the great blog!
If you read Douglas Reed’s “the Controversy of Zion’ it becomes readily apparent that the USA was well in the grips of the carcinogenic influence in the period prior to WW2. It’s critical exposure was around the time of the creation of the Federal Reserve, as detailed by Edward Griffin in “The Creature from Jekyll Island.
The murder of Kennedy was when the tumours became obvious, and we are now watching the pitiful demise of a frail, decrepit wreck of a nation about to turn to dust, as described in a remarkable profetic statment by Benjamin Netanyahu.
The lesson all nations need to learn from this?
Keep the carcinogen well away from your national body politic. Unfortunately the marketing arm for the carcinogen has been brutally effective and many cannot even consider the possibility that the above mentioned sources might be telling us something we really need to know and understand, let alone contemplate and act on the consequences of not knowing and understanding
Three significant dates in American history.
1. 1913 – creation of the Fed – since the Revolutionary War America see-sawed between having a national bank and not – controlling the money supply was a key step in eventually taking over any country. With the creation of the Fed the US, by law, placed the control of its money into “private” hands, never to be taken back again.
2. Assassination of JFK and the accession of Lyndon Johnson in 1963 put the last nail in the coffin of the people’s government to be replaced by “private” interests. These interests have since taken over Congress, the Executive and the Judiciary (incl the SCOTUS).
3. 9/11/2001 – With the fall of the towers planned and executed by “private” interests the people of the USA were finally subjugated to ultimate totalitarian rule with the passing of the Military Commissions Act and the first Defense Authorisation Act which proudly proclaimed that the American people were considered enemy combatants to be studied, spied upon, suppressed, imprisoned and confirmed potential enemies of the state. This whilst at last dropping the innocent mask and publicly, audaciously declaring that the Constitution is “but a piece of paper” and that the security of the State was paramount over the rights of the individual, rights which had been fought for and died for by generations of Americans starting with the founding Fathers.
After 9/11 the conquest of America by “private” interests was complete, and the Republic of the United States of America as constituted in the 18th century was nothing but a Hollywood image spread over an emptied shell as not only the freedoms are disappearing, but the venerable middle class as well, as vast wealth is being sucked out of the middle classes and transferred to “private” interests.
First, control the money. Then control the government. Then control the people.
Great comment, and very true. The two books you reference should be required reading for everyone
Isn’t that the warning of Benjamin Franklin?
In my opinion the collapse of the US began in 1963 with the assassination of JFK, who tried to curtail the power of the elite, who had him assassinated. The US was always ruled by the elite. However, after 1963, this rule became more predominant and aggressive, with an increase in military interventions abroad. Nixon gave a helping hand in this collapse when he took the dollar off the gold standard, permitting the elite to print as many dollars as it wanted. The US is now in a fine economic and financial mess.
You and BF both live in the JFK worship world. JFK is the war criminal who among other things created the death squad known as the Green Berets-post Cuban missile crisis. And JFK was a very good friend of the Military Industrial Complex.
JFK worshippers:take down that JFK pinup boy poster from the bedroom wall….

Now don’t tell me you believe that Oswald shot JFK, a technical impossibility. Al the evidence points to the fact that there were three shooters. JFK a “war criminal” ? First time I read that.
Forensic tests carried out at Dallas police HQ revealed no firearm propellant residue on Oswald. It’s even in the Warren Commission report FFS. Maybe he fired bullets using a slingshot; who knows.

1791, the year the US died. “Congress gave the Bank of the United States, now commonly known as the First Bank, a 20-year charter that started in December 1791. The bank did not dictate fiscal policy, but it still wielded great influence over the country’s finances due to its size. The banknotes issued by the First Bank gave the U.S. the closest thing to a national currency at a time when each state bank could print its own banknotes. First Bank notes were also the only ones accepted when paying federal taxes, which the First Bank was in charge of collecting. It also worked to pay the government’s bills, including much of the debt left over from the Revolutionary War. Congress opted not to renew the bank’s charter when it expired in 1811. Five years later, after the War of 1812, President James Madison signed a bill establishing the Second Bank of the United States.
Among the plan’s most vocal opponents was Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson advocated for a strict interpretation of the U.S. Constitution, which didn’t explicitly state that the federal government could create a national bank. On the other hand, Hamilton argued, the Constitution also didn’t prohibit the formation of such a bank. Even after both the House and the Senate approved the bill, Jefferson urged President Washington to veto it. Instead, Washington gave Hamilton a week to address Jefferson’s arguments. Hamilton delivered a 15,000-word rebuttal that swayed Washington.
I believe the US does have major natural resources but, its environmental laws prevent them from taking advantage of it. And then there’s the wider picture, why use your own resources when you can use others? Deplete those resources first then fall back on your own. This tactic will ensure your competitors will not have the needed resources to stop your hegemony.
As for Latin America, some already have turned East simply because of economics; more will follow. But, there will still be Latino ideologues inside the US/Europe that will use the US for their agenda.
why use your own resources when you can use others?
Because now the Snow Niggers stand in the way, along with the Gooks, the Wetbacks, the Injuns, the Sand Niggers and pretty much the rest of the planet :-)
And the Snow Niggers now carry a big, BIG stick.
you’re right washington is going to start a really big war sometime in the next 5 years. they know no other way to deal with the mounting problems that are overwhelming their rule, their legitimacy and the nation they control.
they will lose quickly whatever war they start and in the realization …they have lost…. before the war actually ends we all get to find out if they are also willing to take everyone down with them in one last….. if i can’t have it no one can… moment of selfishness.
i don’t think anyone can predict how centuries of elite bred self delusion will handle the knowledge their expiration date of global power and control has arrived.
The anti-people void and crime situation in Palestine is the key planetary issue. It will impact every nation.

and I totally believe that Iran will solve that problem for the rest, more cowardly and less principled, humanity.
I have the same advice for my friends in the Ukraine and in Israel: run while you still can. Kabul 2.0 will happen, and then it will be too late.
A lot will depend on whether there is a “Suez moment” for the US or not.
This would be a dream come true.
Saker, the future of the West but also of the World, will be to deal with the consequences of a post war and natural disaster – the US will break apart in 3 or 4 States, her power will be broken – Russia will loose the war, not because of inability but the wickedness and desperation of the West – Soon and first another war will brake out in the Middle East, Israel will be involved – Russia and Turkey will fight, Turkey will be destroyed, and broken apart – Konstantinople goes back to Greece – the West will declare war on Russia and Russia will have no choice but to attack – in tbe end Russia will be beaten back but Europe will be in ashes – it last about 3 months – a natural disaster followed by 3 days of darkness will end a war nobody wins, after that the sun will rise in the west – the book of life is already written
Total nonsense! You are confuse…
Yes, the EU will be ditched and replaced by sovereign countries, which is logical, bearing in mind the EU was created by Western bankers to curtail the sovereign status of European countries.
However, I am not so sure about the future of the US. You stated “The USA will become a “normal”, but major and powerful, country”. Will it ? Will it exist in it’s present political and geographic form ?
In 1998 Igor Panarin, Dean of the Russian Diplomatic Academy, presented his map on the break up of the US into six parts. Having lived in the US, I can state that the map is basically correct, and I can only agree with Panarin.
The US is experiencing political, social, economic, financial and ethnic troubles. It already fought one civil war, which is still fresh in the minds of people in the South. It has a large foreign debt, with people failing to understand that it also has a gigantic domestic debt, many times larger, and even US university professors are not sure how large it is. These debts can never be repayed. Worse, the dollar is printed backed by nothing, except the US military. This situation cannot be permanently maintained, ie. you cannot kick the can down the road permanently.
Analysts are predicting a financial crash. And how will the US elite react ? Sit back and watch the show, or provoke a large regional war to boost the US economy and finances, an old bankers trick that analysts are stating will not work any more.? Aren’t we seeing this in Ukraine ?
The US empire is collapsing, and it will go down in history as the shortest lived. However, empires do not like to collapse peacefully, playing dirty to maintain their status. As I have written before, Ukraine as such is not the source of the current political conflict between the US/NATO and Russia. Western financial, social and political troubles are the catalyst for the current political conflict, with the West trying to deflect the public’s attention towards “aggressive” Russia. An old trick. How will this end ? Peacefully, or shall we see a larger military conflict, enacted in Ukraine, and perhaps wider ?
The US had two Civil Wars already not only one. the War for independents was also a Civil war among UK Citizens. it may be not a US civil War, but a Civil War nonetheless.
Someone has said that already:
The us is born through a Civil War.
has matured through a civil War.
and will die through a Civil War.
This is also my Stand and i guess the US will break apart afterwards. In how many Parts doesn’t matter. Six, three or Commiefornia only (that had btw, somewhere in the last 20 Years the same BIP than friggin Germany for example). The North American Continent will see some gruesome Civil Wars over shit, maybe even some Nukes used. Afterward it will spiral in the same shit hole state they have pushed so many other country’s before them. Funny thing will be that the Amish people maybe will be the best survivor of all of this. Hopefully, because they have dedicated their whole lifestyle into pre industrial, because exactly of this shit that happens rn. Let the Fate have mercy with them.
The financial Crash is inevitable and has already begun in 2008, the total collapse is only hold back by the FED and ECB, with hidden Help by Russia and China rn.
As soon as Russia only accept something else then Dollar for their Gas and China only Rimini the financal collapse will enter the end phase, The Hyperinflation has already start in the US and even we can feel it here in Europe. If Russia is generous it will use EUR for their trade and will soften the Blow Europe will have to tank. otherwise we will have also a short hart hyperinflation like in 1923. Afterwards we will very likely go back to national currency’s and states and the great experiment with migration will be also over. The EU will fall apart afterwards, quite peacefully is my guess.
For a War i disagree with you. A german/Russian blogger (http://analitik.de/) have already pointed out that Russia and China will nearly do what ever it takes to let the US fall “softly”, means without a “Last War” because this “Last War” could be, or mere have to be, nuclear. And NO ONE wants a Nuclear War.
In this perspective is also to understand why Russia has invested so much in EW (Tomahawks into Syria remember? 2/3 never reached their destination) and Anti Air defense and comparable less into Tanks or Airplanes, let alone ships. Russia prepare for the last cramps of the dying Empire and is ready to Tank the MIRVs if they come, but in the same time trying everything it could to give them no Reason whatsoever to even think that they have to use them. Therefore i think Russia will do no military actions in the foreseeable future because the actual dying phase have now start (financial collapse, hyperinflation, riots).
My prediction will be that Russia understands very Well that Berlin, London nor Paris represents neither the people of these lands nor the Economy (hence the direct talk of Putin with german businesses last year or this year). So it will be very considerate at when it pulls the last lifeline of the Empire aka the use of Dollar. Before that, it will either switch to EUR or Rubel or Yuan. watch closely when it happens it will be the indicator when the last breath will be taken by the Empire.
At this time all Hell will break loose on the Parquet of Wall Street, Frankfurt and London. this will result in a Flashback into the Real World economy and, depending on how the company’s have reacted to the offerings of Russia, will led to a extreme burn of Hyperinflation and bankruptcy of many Big Businesses. This free fall of the western global economy will then lead to the mentioned Civil War and the Breakup of the US of A.
My Guess (hell they even admitted it once) here is that Russia already play that game and actually HOPES that the USA will pose even MORE sanctions on them to substitute even more things, until they have literally no way then to use Rubel EUR or Yuan to trade AT ALL. And it will be look like that it is all US Fault due to sanctions. Russia will look Innocent like a newborn, that even the most insane of the Western elites cant blame them.
One note i will remember also to it: Russia is the only Country, ever existed, that dont need ANY external trade to sustain ALL of its economic. All resources they need they have on their own territory, and i mean…
!ALL OF IT!
Uran, Rare Earth, Gold, Gas, Oil, you name it, Russia have it in industrial amount. Mostly in the Region of Ural and southern Russia, hence the Mackinders Name “Heartland”, who ever control this land don’t need anybody else and can exert control over the whole World. Geographically, economically and politically and therefore militarily.
This is an aspect many analyst seems to forget in all of their plays. money is only a SUBSTITUTION for something else, what ever it may be. But if you have ALL, money have no real meaning for you, regadless if you are a Country or a single person. So the money card, i see many playing, is absolute meaningless to Russia. Also Russia has bought up Gold in the last decade like crazy to back up its amount Ruble that circulates rn. if necessary they will deflate that to a sustainable amount and nothing to fear from a burning Dollar. Hell they could also fake a default to reset their own debts and start fresh.
If Russia plays its cards right their will be NO way that the USA will have even the slightest hint to use any Force against Russia. And Russia is rn World champion in Geo strategic plays.
All of this will play out in maybe the next 15 Years. the End phase have already started with the Covid fake pandemic to implement in a last ditch effort a control of the Masses. Russia dictates when the next phase starts. By the looks of it, this or next Year will be the one in witch they pull the final plug and all hell will break loose. Lets see
We living in interesting times…
>… These debts can never be repayed. …<
WRONG! For at least as long as the USA can continue to find buyers for its Treasury Bonds, Bills, etc. That´s the well-known advantage of owning the printing press for the world´s reserve currency. Every dollar of debt will almost surely be repaid, though quite possibly with Zimbabwe / Brasil / Weimar-style inflated "greenbacks". The only question is just how long the USA will be able to continue borrowing in its own currency. Once they have finance their style of living beyond their means by borrowing in real "hard" currency, it´s "Game Over", Argentina-style.
I would say you are very optimistic on your view about the USA. I have no doubts about Russia and Germany and a few other nations but USA, I have a very spiritual friend of mine living in the country that saw you born , he said it will be divided in 5 parts and 5 ruthless people will run 5 states the living will be even worst than what you see now in certain areas.
It would be very interesting to see it happening
By then before that I will be in Ekaterinburg.
Currently I am living inthe Czech Republic and I csn testify that there is a good portion of the Czechs that see it your way. Unfortunately, and like many in the US or Canada, they, for the most part, have hardly any choice when they come to the poles. The western elites own the political theatre and will not permit any non aligned politicians to run. Tulsi Gabbard or Bernie Sanders is a good example. Democracy is dead in the West. Same circus but different clowns. The US does not have any bright future. Why? Because lately it lost true quality education (also thanks to the Critical culture theory and similar misplaced ideas-just ask Jordan Peterson), R&D moved to Asia, middle class is disappearing faster than a blink of an eye and self anointed minorities are replacing quolified cadres. To turn the tied would require complete demolition and reconstruction from ashes but based on entirely different values and comprehension of the reality. I don’t think that is feasible in the near future and impossible on a planet where life is going for the sixth major extinction.
Self anointed minorities? That’s what you for see the problem to be. You’re beloved Anglo brothers have suppress education and science, and taking credit for much that is not their own yet you quote this as the issue. How ludicrous. Look at accent civilizations and enlighten us how their science is no longer relevant nor their descendants capabilities present.
It does frighten me also.
Ok…but at the moment the US is a very very abnormal Nation. But we can pray for a miracle….
My view of the matter is that the Cold War immediately…around 1945…set the US on the very very abnormal trajectory because of the unwillingness of US Frankish Elites to live in peace with Soviet Union-Russia…..And JFK….a fellow Mic….nearly brought it to a nuclear mushroom cloud head. Comrades take down your JFK pinup boy poster… JFK….very bad for moral development…
And we can thank the Frankish father of Stuart Copeland and his brother Miles Copeland(he also managed the drug addict sluts known as the Go Go’s)…The Frankish brudders…..for the Cold War…
The Copeland Brothers may be Franks…but they sure do look Russian..
I respectfully reject your views about the future US. It isn’t going to stay unified for too long. Political divisiveness, economic issues will ultimately result in disintegration. The only thing that carries the carcass that is the US is the USD.
China has told Blinken and Nuland to go home and accept the implementation of the Minsk Peace accord, and has given the same message to the British.
Instead of pleasing the Evil Empire, The Chinese ambassador to the US have warned the US of a possible war over Taiwan. https://www.npr.org/2022/01/28/1076246311/chinas-ambassador-to-the-u-s-warns-of-military-conflict-over-taiwan?t=1643540545486
Justin Trudeau has left the Capitol of Canada, after The Freedom Convoy has rallied millions of Canadians and has entered Ottawa. And not surprisingly CBS now claims that Russia may be behind the protest. https://www.zerohedge.com/political/worlds-largest-truck-convoy-arrives-ottawa-protest-medical-tyranny
The Canadian protest have inspired American Truckers, who are planning a similar event in the USA.
To save his seat in parliament, Boris Johnson have ordered more British forces to be ready for deployment in Estonia, and other NATO nations, to counter “Russian aggression”.
However Hungary has declined to have NATO forces on its territory, as they see no need for such deployments. https://www.rt.com/russia/547731-hungary-nato-troops-ukraine/
Maybe we will see more NATO Nations declining to have foreign troops on their territories.
Donald Trump has blamed Joe Biden of sending troops to the wrong border.
Instead of focusing on the border between Russia and Ukraine, Trump suggests that Biden should focus on the southern border of the USA. https://www.rt.com/news/547759-border-invasion-migrants-troops/
AUKUS is in panic to stay relevant as Nation after Nations rejects their demands to “protect” them.
Reality is that we are witnessing the break between The British Imperial alliance VS the European Nations.
I believe the conflict with Russia will be the final straw to fracture NATO:
The British Imperial Alliance has clearly dropped Europe.
The EU will take over OTAN and the former NATO headquarters in Brussels.
The Nordic Nations will complete a Nordic Alliance.
A Nordic Alliance will cause an economic Boom in Nordic Nations, and necessitate cooperation with Russia regarding National security for all Nations around the Baltic Sea, The North Atlantic, and the Artic Region.
The OTAN Central European Alliance will necessitate cooperation with Russia for the safety of Europe.
And the US taxpayers will no longer pay for the security of Europe and the Nordic Nations.
Foreign Minister Lavrov points his finger at the Anglo-Saxons. A network led by European Royalty, the Vatican and its Global Network of freemasons, for causing the current crisis in Europe. I think he is right.
This network has been the cause of wars around the globe for centuries, including 2 World Wars.
I hope that the uprising in Europe, Britain and America is a sign that the western population have woken up, and refuses to participate in more wars, otherwise we are only one falls slag attack away from WW3.
A lot of this comment is going off-topic. Would have suited a different article/post or cafe. Any further will go to trash. Mod.
great argument: revealing and enriching!
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson orders armed forces to prepare to deploy “across Europe” to support NATO allies.
Russian Foreign Ministry: “The hype in the Western media around Russian-Ukrainian relations has reached a boiling point – or rather, the extreme stage of insanity”
You know what they call the UK in Russia these days?
Melkobritania which can be translated as Tiny Britain (as opposed to Great Britain).
London has become a cloaca for Russian oligarchs and assorted “opponents”.
Makes me wonder why The Donald never called London a “shithole” :-)
So Boris can be Boris, he does make Snow Niggers laugh a lot tough…
there actually was a BBC comedy sketch show called “Little Britain” which ridiculed the Britain of today, it was a popularly received show,
I think most day to day British folk understand the British Empire is long gone and we are just a quirky island on the fringe of Europe,
but our politicians seem to be increasingly thinking in 19th century hyperbole, Mackinder’s Heartland theory made a lot of sense, but 100 years ago, it’s too late to pursue that agenda, the chance was missed a century ago.
appreciate Boris Johnson, he’s an incompetent clown likely to turn on a sixpence and repeatedly make an ass of himself,
the likely contenders to replace him are welded to 19th century thinking, obdurate and much better organised than Boris,
Boris will change his mind on a whim, but his replacement will likely be rigidly inflexible and astonishingly bone headed.
This show was cloned in Russia and was rather popular too
well how about that!
I learned something today, thanks!
I wish I could understand Russian, the Voltaire site published a story on Vovan and Lexus doing a prank interview with a chap involved in the Khazakstan nonsense,
Why not just call them:”Little Dicks”…I can’t imagine how you would say this in Russian…
Breathtaking sumation. Being a czech and my parents telling me of the horrors of ww2 as it affected them as civilians, partisan fighters and having to endure slave labour and concentration camps. Following Russian occupation and the following years of uncertanty. Escaping then years later returning, seeing changes. They taught me to read learn and have an objective questioning mind. Thankyou.
Sory, but what horror of WWII? What did the Czechs experience for horror at that time? You handed over the tanks to Hitler without firing a bullet, you left Little Atanta. Later worked in factories for Nazi purposes. 5 days before the fall of Brelin, an uprising broke out?? Like in Romania. How many army detachments did you have and where? I’m not counting a couple of pilots in the RAF or a communist “komesars” coming with the Red Army? What is the difference today? You will turn the coats soon as situation become tough. Three weeks before the uranium bombing of Serbia, you joined NATO together with the Poles and the Hungarians. Today, Zeman apologizes. Maybe Sputnik int will forgive you and the Yugoslavs, Serbs will not. Justice will be sought for all the servants of Western soldatescs.
The problem what they are solving today both Russia and Serbia is that none of the so-called brothers was punished for helping the Germans in WWII. Only the Germans paid the price. The Austrians got away. As did the Hungarians. Something good in what the Anglo-Zionists do. The problem will become an opportunity for both Russians and Serbs. Soon.
The future of the West will be bleak as long we’re ruled by such corrupt degenerates. The only resolution is rope and lamp posts. Voting will not end the madness.
You probably won’t have long to wait. The US military is holding “domestic guerilla warfare drills” in anticipation of the 2024 election.
A year before 9/11 they had drills for civilian aircraft attacks on highrises, a year before covid they had a global pandemic drill.
How realistic is it that the US military would be able to “control” “The People”. I am not knowledgeable on military matters, but I see stuff online, that makes me think these military don’t have much chance. First of all I understand that a certain percentage of them have been jabbed, which causes not good side effects, then there is all the wokeness being forced on the military, and then last but not least, As a member of a group, the members can feel when they are losing and don’t have moral high ground. I think it would act very demotivating to the us military to fight their own. So while I think the powers that be may have a strategy to implement military, my gut feeling tells me this is not going to be very effective on a very angry and disillusioned populace.
When I saw this I wondered about the possibility of the military seizing power and holding tribunals to have an accounting. https://odysee.com/@Plazma:9/dod:4
The Clash:”Give em enough rope”
Take comfort and have faith. I say this as an atheist. Sometimes taking a step backwards is a way of going forwards. There will be a necessary amount of collapse before people wake up, but once they do, the spirit to survive and even thrive overcomes all, even the power of the elites. Maybe America will find it’s own “Putin.” There are good men and women in this country, of that I’m sure you know, wisely biding their time for now. I’m a fellow submarine in the desert like you, an alien to these shores on paper, but in my mind I am thoroughly American, and I would like help cushion the landing of this falling empire.
Maybe America will find it’s own “Putin.”
YES! That is possible. Similar “out of nowhere” figures have often appeared in history, especially during crises.
I am actually even quite confident that the Ukraine, once re-sized to something viable, will find her own “Putin” too.
That is what crises do: hurt innumerable people until somebody seriously decides to stop it.
“Similar “out of nowhere” figures have often appeared in history, especially during crises.”
And that is most terrifying. One simply doesn’t know what these “out-of-nowhere” figures will do. Take the nation to prosperity or bring about a worse nightmare. Sometimes I wonder if peoples inaction is due to this unknown.
I don’t think “you can find a Putin”. Historical figures such as President Putin are “donated” by the Most High: perhaps the Russian population deserved a president like Putin after many difficulties and sufferings. Or “the Spirit blows where It wills”, and It has nothing to do with what we do or don’t. But surely, one way or another, President Putin will leave an imprint on the world psyche, and will help – I hope – humanity in the Western world, to rediscover itself …
Theoretically it is not impossible for the US to find it’s own Putin. However, the chances of that happening are very slim, bearing in mind the power of the neocons, who staged the greatest election steal in US history on behalf of Joe Biden. Not even the US Supreme Court dared accept the charges filed by Trumps lawyers.
Salaam – Saker and to all here-salaam. [“out of nowhere” figures have often appeared in history, especially during crises.] Take note of those types- Hitler, Caesar, even Idi Amin among others.Salaam
Russia is a European country, and it has many friends in Western Europe especially among those that are able to use their brain. I have the feeling that the Wall you mentioned is coming down slowly, with more and more people disgusted with EU or their transatlanticist puppet regimes. Time is on Russias side.
I emphatically and categorically disagree.
Yes, for 300 years Russia was ruled by westernized ruling classes.
But Russia, the real Russia, is not European at all.
Okay, geographically, west of the Urals she is.
But culturally, Russians are descendants from the East Romans.
Europeans are descendants from the Franks.
Two cardinally and totally opposed cultures.
Hence 1000 years of warfare to survive the attacks of our “European neighbors” :-)
Russia is really sui generis, but she is MUCH more Asian than European.
Europe is an anti-Russia, sorry, but that is the undeniable reality as soon as you dig deeper in history and do not let 300 years of western occupation obfuscate that reality from you.
I would consider medieval East Romans, Europeans too. Their roots are in the Roman-Greco-Christian heritage and the Franks thought of themselves as the successors of the Western Roman Empire and it’s culture.
Anyway, I hope Russia won’t break up with Europe and continue to treat them like you treat stupid brats: with a lot of patience :) . I think there is a mutually beneficial future ahead, especially now that the influence of the Anglozio imperium is going down the drain.
BTW: thanks for the great article
This is true! Russia is Russia! It is its own civilization. Sons of Constantine. I would never trust US or EU.
“Most westerners who met me initially did not know of my origins, so they treated me like “one of them” until I mentioned my Russian roots, at which point their attitude immediately changed: “careful, he is one of them” was written all over their faces.”
I am exactly the opposite. In any new place I would search for faces of the motherland. It was how I met my friend in school. His family is being bombed by Banderists, by the way. So I find all the vile spewed by Western media and people who repeat this to be more than mildly annoying.
Seriously, what is the genetic distance between Slavic Russians and the Franks.
Are not the Celts and Scandinavians European? Poles?
By the way, Elvis Presley is of Frankish ancestry….in case you don’t know…
its not about genetics at all
it is about worldview
races is an undefined category
ideology is not
Spengler would agree. See “Decline of the West” Volume 2, pages 192-196, ending with:
“It was the people itself, without hatred, urged only by the need of throwing off a disease, destroyed the old
Westernism in one effort of upheaval, and will send the new after it in another. Tolstoi’s Christianity was a misunderstanding. He spoke of Christ and he meant Marx. But to Dostoyevsky’s Christianity the next thousand
years will belong.
That is a very interesting Spengler quote.
I can read only in translation but Tolstoy, though a fine writer, seems to be a very acute observer of human actions who has an obscure (to me) view of what human life might be, or mean.
Dostoyevsky, though not always clear (again, to me) at least seems to address the issue of human values, and why certain choices are made, whether for good or ill.
My apologies to those who may have a deeper understanding of these authors.
So true, what is known as “race” is a social construction which can be deconstructed through a proper study of history. I don’t believe that a competent geneticist would back this social construction of the term “race”.
Ideology is a vehicle for how one views the world around them. This is the cause of tragedy and/or triumph throughout human history.
I don’t believe that race is undefined scientific category…. But I fully agree with the spirit of your comment…So I will say that I agree with you…
But I do think that phenotype does count for a lot…I mean who f would want to breed with Rosie O’Donnell or Hillary Clinton..?
Elvis Presley had native American roots. His facial structure shows that: his high cheekbones and his typical native American nose. Probably his hair too, though he did dye his hair black.
I don’t know if Elvis had Cherokee roots…but I do know from reading that he was born with blond hair…Elvis the Pelvis family came from Germany in 1790….
If Elvis has Cherokee ancestry…well you know, his ancestors had black slaves…..and when the black slaves were set free by the known homosexual Ol Abe Lincoln….they went on to become Buffalo Soldiers….and that’s the Democratic Party coalition in 2024 folks…
I just want to add that the East Romans were formally the Hellenes or the Greeks. They converted from paganism to Orthodoxy.
The Franks caused the Latins (western Europe) to split from Orthodox Christianity and became Roman Catholic.
It’s the Franks that want to destroy Orthodoxy thus war with Russia.
Western Christianity is NOT original Christianity (Orthodox) but a heretical form of original Christianity.
The Frankists still profess that western Christianity is the correct one but it’s not the case. These Franks are the ones inside that Great Western Wall you mention in your article.
The Greek line of emperors “taucht auf” in the 8th century AD, if I am not mistaken. And again as one among many others. Byzantium (as it is wrongly called) or Romeja was not only a Greek country, but Armenian, Georgian, Anatolian, Syrian, Serbian (including Macedonian lines) etc. The last Constantine Dragas 11 considered himself (after his mother) a Serb, he did not like to be called Greek as a merchants do:)). It was the same with Mehmed the Conqueror, whose mother Mara was also a Serb. He did not trust Turkoman fathers or the Turkish army much, but the Balkan janissaries.
So, Constantinople gave Autocephaly to the Russians, Jerusalem to the Serbs. Who gave it to greek church and when? Where did you get the right to inherit Romeja? Mybe the West give you that right, what do you think? Referring to the Greek heritage, speaking about the immigration of Slavs :)) on Roman-Greeks lands. . After the fall of Constantinople, you have already found yourself again organizing the Phanariots who were trying to destroy Serbian independent Saint Sava Orthodoxy (spread to Moldavia or Basarabia) in cooperation with the later Sultanate. Sory, but whom does Major Bartholomew serve today? What is happening to the Greek “Orthodox” church today?
I know what is happening to the Greek Orthodox Church today. All heresy comes from within.
The Greeks had a miracle and that miracle was ‘philosophy’. Philosophy is defined as the truth. Just like the Hebrews wrote the Old Testament the Greeks wrote the New Testament. The difference between the two is in the New Testament Christ is incarnated.
Who other than the Greeks had a philosophy like this?
The Greek Orthodox Church’s head is Jesus Christ Himself. Agia Sophia. That’s who gave us the Church, and many other people liked what they saw and followed.
“Two cardinally and totally opposed cultures.”
This has been your core thesis but I don’t see why or how it is so. They are both derived from the same source with the same fundamentals but with differing cultures and practices. What is it about the Frank and East Roman fundamental values that makes the separation that deep?
After all, Russia has been looking West for the last 300 years. Their culture, technology, arts, etc. have been so heavily influenced bt the West that it would not be wrong to say Russia is largely Western. I would venture to say that if it wasn’t for the crass and rapacious behaviour of the West in the nineties Russia and Russians would be cheering for the West now. After all, it took Putin the better part of two decades to persuade the pro West faction in the Russian system that the West was not beneficial to Russia. And he probably has quite a way to go. Barring a catastrophic event that permanently disillusions the pro West Russia faction I would say that Russians will continue to have a big soft spot for the West. 300 years of heavy influence cannot be removed in one or two generations.
Jiri, you asked “What is it about the Frank and East Roman fundamental values that makes the separation that deep?”
The answer is a religious one.
The Franks believe in ‘purgatory’ (cleansing) meaning whatever sin they commit here on earth, when they die, their soul will be cleansed and will go to heaven.
The true East Romans or Orthodox Christians do not believe in purgatory. Life here on earth must refrain from all sin so that their souls are already clean and when they die they will end up in heaven.
So when Franks sin (war, usury, homosexuality, theft, deception, etc.) they think it’s OK because their souls will be cleansed and they’ll still go to heaven.
For the East Romans, they are not allowed to sin because they know that if they do their souls will end up in hell when they die.
This is why the west (US,UK,NATO) is the cause off all evil and the east (Russia, Putin) holds back for war as much as it can except for self defense.

Human beings, Catholics, Orthodox Christians, Protestants, Atheists sin. One time, two, three….the human matrix is sinful, and concupiscence is at its core. Whoever says that “does not sin” does not know himself. A Catholic, after he/she repented in her heart, can be restored to Grace through confession of mortal and/or venial sins to a priest, and by doing penance. Sins are wounds in the soul, but when they are forgiven only the scar is left. When a person dies, even if his/her sins are forgiven, may have a soul with quite a few scars which need to be erased so that the soul may regain the original beauty. This “purgation” is what Purgatory is all about.
I agree with you, we all sin. We sin from birth because we are human and we are not created like Jesus Christ was, ‘immaculately’.
According to the true Orthodox Church whose head is Jesus Christ, our purpose here on earth is attaining ‘theosis’ or ‘deification’.
Repenting, communion, confession, chrismation, baptism, unction, marriage (traditional) are ways of reaching this goal set out for us by Jesus Christ and yet it does not mean we will become deified. We will always be a step or two below the level of Jesus no matter how hard we try. We are human after-all.
The concept of ‘purgatory’ is not part of attaining theosis. It has nothing to do with original Christianity. It was created by the Latin Christians when the split occurred in 1054 A.D. So, since we’re all sinners the heresy came within the Orthodox Church with the help of the unbelievers off-course. In other words, Living a life like Jesus Christ is not easy, in fact, it is extremely difficult, a lot of foot work involved, but the end result in Heaven.
The first mention of Purgatory in the Bible is in 2 Maccabees 12:46: “Thus he made atonement for the dead that they might be freed from sin.”
But I do not know if the book of Maccabees is accepted by the Orthodox Christians.
To me, it seems less to matter what one believes, then what is true. And most of us mortals cannot see into the spiritual world to distinguish more than : ”this feels right”. And even then, one can very easily be misguided. Fortunately humans live a long time, so we might have time to get closer to the truth.
As a w European, culturally Roman Catholic, the idea of purgatory seems probable (if there is an afterlife at all) to me. Without it, it seems unjust and too harsh. But without considering reincarnation it still seems quite random to explain inequalities in chance and opportunity of different people.
I respectfully disagree. East Romans were part of the Roman Empire before it was split into the western and eastern parts, because it was too large to be managed from Rome. East Romans were Greeks, and East Rome was known as Byzantium, centered in Constantinople. The basis of European civilization is the Greek (Hellenic) culture, copied by the Romans and exported throughout the Roman empire. When Western politicians boast of Western culture, they are unconsciously praising the Hellenic culture. Also, when the Renaissance appeared in Italy in the 14th and 15th centuries, it only did so because Greek scholars came to Italy from Constantinople and reminded the Italians of the achievements of the Hellenic/Roman culture.
And yes, there are differences in the culture and mentality between Western and Eastern Europe, inspired by Roman bishops who left the original Christian Church and created the Roman Catholic one. But to state that the real Russia is not European at all is a gross exaggeration, bearing in mind the cultural influence which Orthodox churches have in Eastern Europe. And yes, Russians may not possess the mentality of Western Europeans, but they certainly possess the mentality inspired by the Orthodox churches. Therefore Russians are Europeans, of the Eastern School.
Maybe an article about the fall of Constantinople would do much to explain Russian tradition and history. I am sure you are aware, the common and notable date is 1453 and mostly blamed on the Ottomans, although it was the Western European states led by the Venetians that truly destroyed the strength of Constantinople during the 4th Crusade. It seems that Russian history, even as far back as Constantinople is a tragedy of brother against brother. A history of fratricide. This was the great betrayal of Western to Orthodox Christianity, and truly opened the gates for the Ottoman conquest. An article explaining this schism, of which you are much more qualified to write than me, would help our readers explain the lengthy and often contradictory Russian history. I am an atheist, and I am no Russian, but I would be very interested in seeing a history written by those who are qualified to discuss it, particularly from the Orthodox perspective. Cheers, fellow submarine.
A bit of history .
Name Europe is relatively recent one – “humanistic” term appearing in XVII century. Before it was Roman Empire and then
Christian world . Voltaire promoted idea with success . Geographically speaking it is Euro-Asian Continent. Culturally speaking it is West . Geopolitically nowadays speaking it is USA colony.
A master piece my friend.
The western wall was crumbling long ago. This has been noted in the rise of what western propagandists refer to as the “deplorable conspiracy theorists” etc. Only the aging boomer population still believes in the mainstream news. The recent US election had to be stolen/fortified for a reason.
Gays, transsexuals and drafting women by lowering standards already signals that the US military is desperate for recruits. So while Americans still respect the average soldier in uniform, they no longer trust the military as an institution.
Even the flag waving conservative comedian alt media has to pepper their desire to point out that the Biden committee is wrong with the usual jokes of drunken devious Russian Putin who is still running circles around their leaders. Sure they still have the facts about what actually occurred in the Ukraine and Crimea wrong, but they are slowly getting there.
The great American military fantasy only lives on in video games.
The US and UK are all in, it seems, though it could be said they’re tilting at windmills. The problem is, this windmill is a bear and a dragon has its back.
So, cui bono? Obviously, the instigators think they do. This is delusional, of course, but what would drive anyone to risk ww3?
I can only see this as the US sees ascension of Eurasia as an existential threat. It simply cannot exist unless it has global dominance.
Ukraine is unique in that it is a transit country, not only for Russian gas but also for the BRI. Poland is now claiming that Ukraine has been blocking rail shipments for weeks.
China and Russia both have a problem in that, in order to reach western Europe, one or more Russophobic yapping Chihuahuas must be transited. The US is using that leverage for all its worth. The game is to stop Nord Stream and stop BRI.
It seems that the strategy is to keep tensions at just below the boiling-over point to stymie the Russians and Chinese. Maybe even have a ‘little war’ that could be tamped down before it gets out of control to completely halt any overland trade from the East, blame Russia for it all and have all European-Russian relations severed.
It’s madness to even contemplate such a scheme, but it seems to playing out that way. The desperation must be intense in Washington after losing its presence in Afghanistan, clearing the way for all of Asia to be inter-connected.
I don’t think Russia can be counted on to capitulate in order to “stop the madness”, but the crazies pushing this seem to be banking on it.

Saw this on OffGuardian right after reading this article. It’s a tweet about a CBC broadcast regarding the truckers’ protest.
It’s the damn Russkies.
Well, maybe not, Saker – some at CBC apparently really raised the spectre of those peski russkies stirring up trouble in Can. They make such wonderful, elastic enemies – one can make them fit any situation.
I think this actually illustrates your point rather well:
“You can’t make this stuff up.
CBC News, a Canadian state-sponsored media outlet, baselessly claimed that RUSSIA is the criminal mastermind behind the massive truckers for freedom convoy. True North clipped the video.”
Meanwhile things are moving along.
Scratch the surface of someone with a superiority complex and you will always find an inferiority complex.
I look at human problems through a spiritual/ nonmaterial lens rather than a sociological or political lens. A country can have a beautifully written constitution but if its people lack awareness suffering will ensue. For example, as long as people live in ignorance the means of production will remain in the hands of the few. The inner always overcomes the outer
I understand where you are coming from but somehow i cannot fully agree, as one raised in an Anglo/Celtic culture this is my take on the real feelings. I am really talking UK and colonial powers because the USA is a little different but here goes:
1. The Anglos are rivals to the French. There is a mix of contempt and approval and even bum licking, given that speaking French was a requirement for the educated, French fashions were the highest goal. A bit like rival football teams – a mixture of hate and respect.
2. The Anglos love the Italians but hold them in contempt. They loooove the culture but think the people corrupt, cowardly and weak.
3. The Anglos truly despise the Spanish. They are the devils, the demons. Think Sir Francis drake, Queen Elizabeth 1. the armada and of course the hated King Phillip and his cruel inquisition friends.
4. The Anglos respect the Germans – hardly surprising given their Royal house was German. The Anglo way of thinking is very, very Germanic -not surprising given they had a common origin with languages closely related.
5. The Angloes despise the Irish -they are seen to have all the faults of the Italian with none of their virtues plus they are regarded as drunkards. This has probably changed in recent years but was definitely the case when i was young.
6. Then there are the Scots. This is complicated and probably beyond me. However the Scots are not Anglos. They are respected (given that the British empire relied on them, hardly surprising) also they punched above their weight in terms of education and engineering and medicine. Fierce fighters they tend to be romanticised. Moreover the relative economic prosperity of the major “white colonies”, Australia, NZ and Canada can largely be set at the door of the Scots. In Australia I can say with certainty that Scots descendants were the wealthy ones, largely oppressing the working class catholic Irish.
7. Now what about Russians. Here I think you have hit it when you mention the Mongols, because I think for many or most in the West they equated Russians with the Mongol horde. Now growing up I can say that, for me even coming from a leftist home, very pro Russian generally my image of Russians was based on the cartoon characters Boris and Natasha. Boris was small and dark and evil looking and Natasha was a tall, slim , very sexy but also very black haired. To my personal embarrassment, I was surprised to find the Russians or at least those from the west are very blonde almost Swedish looking. Essentially the west portrayed Russians as essentially very Asiatic/Turkish in appearance. The Russians were portrayed as comic, evil and drunk. Now as to pre cold war portrayals- from literature etc, I think the reality is that they were ignored.
Anglo/Celtic is about the same as Judeo/Christian: a impossible category
Anglos cannot understand Celts
Jews cannot understand Christians.
Regarding number 3, we, in the Spanish speaking world, also despise the anglos and it has been like that for the last 400 years.
But the anglos still do not know it.They live in their own bubbles.
We do not talk too much about this with those outside the Spanish speaking world (we tend to be polite/non aggressive people) although we do it among ourselves.

You non chalantly forget the millions in the gulags, the millions who died in the revolution, killed by their own brothers but I guess they were not real russians.
Add to this the Civil War (1917-1922) – about 20 million people. Civil war (1991-2001), taking into account the First and Second Chechen wars, Moldova, the republics of Sr. Asia … – where Russians were beheaded, raped. expelled – this is also about 20 million victims.
NOW ABOUT GRAVNOY
And who from the Russian Empire arranged the First “Orange Revolution – 1917” three months before OUR victory over Germany?
And who fostered Hitler and created the III Reich (Colonel House and Rockefeller +), with whose money who financed national fascism in Western Europe (Eastern Europe – Russia to the Urals)?
Who helped fascist Europe before 1944 with finances, fuel, engines, steel…?
And who wanted to bomb the peaceful cities of the USSR with nuclear bombs immediately after OUR Great Victory over your henchmen (“Dropshot”)?
Who gave us the second orange revolution-1991 with all the wars, conflicts, etc. genocide?
All this blood, all these victims, so to speak, “exclusively” on you – superhuman Darwinists / national fascists!
Are you bastards?! – Of course you are, now it’s time to collect stones.
I am 99% sure that in your entire life you never did ANYTHING to bring down the Gulag or the Soviet system.
I even risked my life for it.
Let me remind you the number of victims of the “Great Depression” USA 1932-33 – more than 7 million people.
According to American statistics, over the decade from 1931 to 1940, according to the dynamics of population growth, the United States lost 8 million 553 thousand people, and population growth rates change immediately, simultaneously, two (!) times exactly at the turn of 1930/31, they fall and freeze at this level for exactly ten years. There is no explanation for this in the extensive, hundreds of pages, text of the American report of the US Department of commerce “Statistical Abstract of the United States” does not contain “- withdrawn and classified.
Executions of peaceful demoralization in the USA
– March 7, 1932. Shooting of the hunger march in Detroit. Henry Ford’s police and armed services opened fire on the workers, killing four and injuring more than sixty (one of them died of his wounds three months later).
– July 17, 1932. Bonus march. The shooting of thousands of demonstrations of veterans of the First World War in Washington. regular troops and tanks. The operation was led by General D. MacArthur, Colonel D. Eisenhower and Major D. Paton (future American military leaders in World War II). The death toll – up to 200 people, more than a thousand wounded.
– August 1965. Watts Riot in Los Angeles – 31 killed (+2 police officers and one firefighter, as well as about a thousand wounded, but of them: 250 “siloviki”, 778 civilians, of which 118 with gunshot wounds.
– July 1967, 12th Street Detroit riot – 43 killed, 467 injured ..
– February 6, 1968 Orangeburg massacre – 2 killed, 28 wounded.

– May 9, 1970 Augusta Riot – 6 killed, 80 wounded.
– May 14-15, 1970, Jackson State killings (“murders at Jackson University”) – 2 killed, 12 injured.
– August 1970 Chicano_Moratorium, 4 killed.

– February 28, 1993 Waco siege – 80 killed, 3 wounded (most of them did not die from bullets, but burned down in a house blocked and set on fire by the National Guard).
Continue or do it yourself?
Religious persecution and murder of Rajneeshpuram followers comes to mind.
In my heart and soul I am bit of a Mongol, and yes I guess you could say, a bit of snow nigger too : )
The so called leaders of the western world do try and marginalize Russia any way they can. Maybe this current confrontation we face may wake the majority of people up. They might finally grasp that Russia is, in all important respects, a natural ally of western countries.
I watched the movie Adrei Rublev on TCM last night. It was a movie chosen by the guest host, musician Hans Zimmer. I was very captivated by this remarkable film.
It was a bit slow moving and hard to follow at first, as I grasped to get the narrative, but as I watched, I became pulled in to this gripping and beautifully made film. It centers on the orthodox monk-artist’s experience during the early 1400s also demonstrating the tribulations of Russians during this period, and how the culture of Russia is born of great hardship and sacrifice.
I may be mistaken but I perceived that the regular host Ben Mankiewicz (whom I do like), was kind of reticent with praise for the film, which is unlike him. Could he be part of the lets-not-say-anything-good-about-Russia brigade?
I am wary of any effort to paint Russia and Russians in a bad light. They are a great people. Hopefully most Americans will feel as i do.
Mongols are, of course, Snow Niggers!
You are spot on :-)
this comment has been flagged as of little/no value (possibly troll) by the sakerSaker, I agree with your analysis other than part of one point, which creates a hagiography of Russia in the same way the US, UK and other Western colonizers create about their own histories:
“Russians cannot be trusted. Ever. Ask any of the people who neighbor Russia and they will tell you how horrible it was to live under Russian rule. The fact that Russians (unlike the West) never committed genocide…”
Genocide is a part of Russian history just like it is for other former or current great powers. The difference for Russia/USSR vs. West ist that they were dealing with real or perceived threats to the government, often fomented by the West (as opposed to genociding people to steal their land). I’m not referring to the so called Holomodor because that was a natural famine that claimed 1.5 million victims that was turned into a holocaust type event by Western propaganda, which is now claiming 8-14 million and climbing every year. NKVD Order № 00485 is one example of genocide, as are expulsions of ethnic groups like Tartars from one end of the country to another.
Please don’t use other people’s usernames either. It has been amended to reflect your name which you have previously used! Mod.
Not sure where you get the idea about genocide being a part of Russian history! The order you mention must be understood in the context of the Polish 1920 attack on USSR, and related only to certain elements, certainly not the entire Polish population. Tatars were kicked out of Crimea because they cooperated with the nazis and betrayed Russian defenders of Crimea. They were moved, not killed – big difference. Let’s not spread misinformation!
What worries me about the future of Russia is not the astounding levels of it’s military and technology, or the *current* leadership, but just how much of Western mind rot has seeped into the youth of the country via the Internet, and even the Universities. I have heard that many of the top Russian Universities are very similar to Western ones in terms of a seeping in of Woke agendas. The same question can be asked of the future crop of politicians? After all, once Putin retires, if a Western stooge is elected then he can undo in one term all that has been accomplished over the past 20 years.
That is a very scary thought. I’m trying to think how this be averted. My understanding is that a lot of this wokeness was purposely seeped into the education system in the usa, so maybe more articles should be written about this to alert the Russian people. And look at WHO is encouraging this and remove that factor.
Depois de muitas digressão, importantes até certo ponto, para entender o porquê chegamos onde estamos, um comentário fundamental. Até que ponto a Rússia está imune a insidiosa agenda woke que não tem necessariamente a ver com o poder militar e sim com o controle dos meios de comunicação de massa pela banca anglo sionista e que está minando as bases do processo civilizatório? A Rússia tem um longo caminho a percorrer nesse terreno para impedir que todo o esforço de retomada do controle da Rússia das mãos do anglosionismo feito pós derrocada do união soviética vá por água abaixo. Isso implica necessariamente em saber de que meios a Rússia dispõe para impor a sua narrativa por sobre a enxurrada de mentiras que o ziomedia impõe ao mundo diuturnamente. Em síntese Implica em saber que alcance tem um espaço de debates qualificado como esse e que alcance tem as mentiras do New York times.
Haven’t all empires lasted about 200-300 years more or less? Guess why? No Orthodox Christian Belief.
The Byzantine Empire lasted 1400 years more or less. Guess why? All Christian Orthodox belief.
Makes a hell of a difference!
I hope Putin begins the 2nd Orthodox Byzantine Empire based in Russia.
I think it was more like 1000 years – from cca 4-5 cent. to 1453, when Ottomans took over Constantinople. Still, a very long time, and the most amazing thing is that the history of the Byzantine empire is hardly taught in Europe.
You forget the F-14 Tomcat….please don’t tell me it was a piece of one of Hillary Clinton’s droppings…Hey the last one ever made is perched out here in Calverton…My late Irish Catholic Father was on the engineering team(the retractable wing)
Please don’t do the White Nigger thing with me. You really have nothing in common with the Mixtec….Mayan…Aztec….and George Floyd….and General Llyod Atkins…..and Stacy Abrams….
The F-14 was a a masterpiece as was its AIM-54 Phoenix missile.
These were the years when the Russians took the USA seriously
Just for context:
I want to add this: the MiG-31 was superior long range interceptor to the the F-14
The MiG 31 is absolutely stunning power…..Can’t imagine what will replace it….
What about the updated Su-27? How would they do against the F-15 E?
In my fantasy world, I wish Russia had 500 Su-57s and 100 thousand S-500 missiles…100 thousand Iskanders….
Get that Slavic brain power to work on this…
The Iskander is a block-busting-Rock-Star!!!
true, nothing in common, we didn’t suffer because of the western elites and are seen as equal people with WASPs…
did you not catch the point, seriously?
Yes, the future of the West is East–or further West depending upon your location–as Hesse and others wrote 100 years ago. I live in Oregon, and if I were much younger, I’d go West to Russia’s Far East. Or perhaps not that far as IMO setting up a logistics business on the Caspian next to the Volga would be an excellent business venture. I also like the idea of Caspian-front property in Kazakhstan. But then your Western Wall was broken by me several decades ago and as such I’m an outlier living within the Outlaw US Empire.
Hatred runs deep in the elites. They have cooped the media, the medical establishment, the educational establishment and whatever else they could lay their dirty little hands on to manipulate the public.
We have presently in the Great White North (Canada) the Freedom Convoy and this absolutely idiotic journalist asking if the Russians could be behind this convoy. Could they sink any lower?
@I will conclude with a question: what will it take to totally bring down that Western Great Wall?@
It will not totally come down. They will circle the wagons with the 5 eyes at the core, plus some areas of the world still enamoured of them such as India, or those they can subdue/coerce such as Korea and some Latin American or African countries.
The trouble making and sniping will continue but it will be more irritant than threat.
Have you seen the circus in Canada today?
CBC went from claiming the Ottawa trucker protest group was a “fringe minority”, to now claiming a massive invading force has encircled Canada’s capital city with the help of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Prime Minister Trudeau has been evacuated. I’m not kidding.
While the Show Niggers and Chinks are busy demolishing the GW wall, people of other normal countries (i.e. Slivovitza Nigger country of Serbia) that allowed themselves to be captured by a Western-run freak conglomerate of androgynous individuals, open pedophiles, drag queens, militant homosexuals or moral freaks in general will be busy taking care of those freaks. The street lamp-post effect will need to run its course.
What am I talking about is illustrated in the following example:
On Friday Belarus retaliated against Serbia after Serbia’s government had earlier introduced a fresh wave of sanctions against the people of Belarus. One should note that Belarus last year or the year before last donated 10 Mig-29s to now-NATO-run Armed Forces of Serbia.
Serbia, a country that had been raped since 1990s by sanctions and eventually by open genocidal US/NATO aggression, stooped to introducing sanctions against anyone let alone against a brotherly nation of Belarus. I am deeply ashamed but I am sure this ugly act by the current Serbia’s government chock-a-block with Western stooges is adding to the already mile-long list of cowardly and bastardly acts committed by Western stooges running Serbia these days.

To be fair, Serbia has been brainwashed by Westerners. They even think it’s great to have a Joe Biden highway, and a Clinton statue with the amount of death those scum caused to Yugoslavia.(
To dumb it down a bit, the US thinks they’re Captain America, when really they are US Agent.
I have no idea where the future of the West is.
1. Continue as before but on a smaller scale as they have reduced power and resources. Yapping at the heels kind of thing.
2. Long running Civil war. The return of the military from its worldwide bases back to the US plus lack of political direction will lead to the inevitable civil war. Could end with things getting worse before they get better.
3. They will cut their losses, circle around the five eyes plus hangers on and continue as before without have learned anything or forgotten anything. This will depend on whether they can co-opt countries like India to join them.
4. Come to their senses, realise how mistaken they have been and operate as normal countries.
“Snow Niggers” ?? Even when used tongue in cheek, it seems so disrespectful. I know that you didn’t mean it that way, Andrei, but still ….
In the tongue and cheek way that Comrade Saker uses it…it would apply to the Historic Native White Working Class……
The post-WW2 US White Elites were, and continue to be, enamoured of the policy of race-replacing the Historic Native White Working Class with nonwhites….Specifically, I am referring to that greedy Frankish Family known as the Bush Family…George H…George W….and Jeb…
Not everything is about americans or your inner struggles
Many of us Canadians who worked in the far north/ arctic circle, snow nigger was/is a derogative term used to denigrate the indigenous people who live there (the eskimo/native indians/nunavut/inuit). Sadly, it is still too often used.
Those people of the north have a brilliance that shines thru the arctic mists. They are the real deal.
First, I like breaking and offending PR dogmas
Second, I just took the expression for Arabs “sand niggger” and applied it to Russians.
I LOVE the beautiful Arab culture (Mashrek is what I mean) and comparing it to Russians in, imho, a sincere compliment.
I think the South will prevail.
I was delighted from the start with the expression “snow niggers”. Just as “sand niggers”, it brings back the intended offense to the offenders
I’m from Brazil, the most racist country throughout the world, though 99% of the Brazilian people are neither white nor black, we are all “mixed” to one degree or another (to quote the great composer Chico Buarque de Holanda, “the only place on Earth where I’m white is Brazil”)
I was thinking about a similar expression for us Brazilians (or all Latin Americans)… then you stated “the South will prevail”, and I realize that the best expression is “South niggers” (or “Global South niggers”)
Hi saker. I too love “breaking and offending PR dogmas” and of course, I am all to familiar with the term sand nigger. I understand and agree with your choice of the word sand nigger/ snow nigger, it is fitting and well describes the Empire’s world view.
I have re-read my comment/reply. I can see how one could think I was being somewhat sanctimonious/flippant in my remarks. That was not my intention.
The truth is that most Canadians live along the U.S. border, and have never heard the term snow nigger. These were the people I was trying to reach.
I am an avid reader of this website. It is one of the few sites that I believe has the capability to change this world for the better.
At times, northern and eastern Russians do have physical characteristics/genetics with Asians and Inuits, and to some of the really ignorant – they’d probably say they are “Mongols”.
Take that for what you will.
There’s an aspect to this that I think people tend to overlook, which is that the disrespect … let’s just call it contempt … embedded in the word “nigger” flows less from a certain population being negroid (black), and more from the fact that they were used as slaves. That the slaves of recent history were brought from Africa just made it supremely convenient for northerners to identify them by skin colour. But, where does the word “slave” come from in the first place? Slavs provided the original pool of coerced labour for western Europe.
The contempt in which slave masters hold their human chattel becomes actively vicious and punitive following a successful slave revolt. Punitive action against such colonies and their descendants can and will persist for centuries. Take Haiti for example. Those people are still being punished for 1804, still paying reparations. My personal opinion is that the West’s punitive attitude toward Russians and Serbs stems, to a significant degree, from the fact these Slavs got uppity and threw off the yoke.
Which is not to say that racism doesn’t factor into it; it absolutely does. But, it doesn’t tell the whole story.
“scaring a hedgehog with a naked butt“.
Thank you for the good laugh!
Tundra Wops? Polar Papuans? Arctic Italians. ??
It’s impossible to offer too much respect to Russia.
We arent dead or speaking German in slave mines because of them. How silly to strut in front of them.
I personally am grateful.
That famous Rosie O’Donnell impersonator General Mark Milley….now he ain’t no Frank…neither is Russian hater…the fat, burping, flatulent Rosie O’Donnell-and Rosie ain’t no Frank either…
I don’t think General Llyod Atkins is a Frank either…..but I do hear he is a Black Lives Matter Supporter….And Black Lives Matter ain’t Franks…
They are just Franks how never heard about Franks, even less so studied them
One of the main problems is that ‘the wall’ is in their heads.
Bob Marley’s lyric about ‘free yourself from mental slavery’ is even more relevant today.
Andrei My Orthodox Brother,
Unfortunately there’s nothing I can do but agree with you. I can’t speak for the entirety of the West but all I have heard for two weeks, even from family members is if I (who speak some Russian and spent time in the former USSR) think Russia is really going to invade Ukraine. They believe the BS that the Western Media puts out there that Vladimir Putin is a terrible dictator and an aggressor who wishes to rebuild the Soviet Union (or Russian Empire).
I remember during the Kosovo conflict and NATO’s aggression towards Serbia that my Stepfather (who fancies himself a political liberal Democrat, Progressive, etc) said something that shocked me. Here’s a man who has always denounced racism and prejudice saying to me that Slavs are an evil race of people. I couldn’t believe that he said that. It must have been ingrained from growing up during the Cold War and all the propaganda around that.
I try to be the best ambassador I can for the Russian point of view. I have a deep love and respect for the Russian Nation and it’s great people and it’s culture, customs and history. I consider myself to be spiritually Russian. I was Chrismated (converted from Roman Catholicism) into the Russian Orthodox Church in a former Soviet Republic in Central Asia. I have a general understanding geopolitics (despite my lack of higher education) and I understand the Russian position on it’s traditional Sphere of Influence (it’s Near Abroad) and I hoped that Americans being the nation that wrote the Monroe Doctrine would understand the Russian position on such matters. I think if they weren’t completely brainwashed by the MSM propaganda they would absolutely understand where Russia is coming from.
Unfortunately when people are conditioned to think a certain way it’s very hard to get through to them. They need to be (for lack of a better term) Red Pilled as to the truth of things and stop believing the comfortable myths and lies that have been built up around Washington particular but also Western Civilization and how we got to where we are and where we are going.
I think the last hope for the West is Orthodoxy. It’s returning to the Orthodox Catholic faith of our ancestors before the Great Schism. With the Roman Catholic Church falling as it is into Modernity and Globalism I truly see Western Rite Orthodoxy as the last hope of the West. It is our heritage in the West. A lost heritage.
God willing there’s still time for the West to return to Christ, because otherwise I see my Civilization as doomed.
And now I’m off to go crank up some Roger Waters ….. Tear Down That Wall!!!!!
(and yes, a lot of that album is talking about similar topics. We don’t need no mind control.)
“Snow Niggers”… that is a contradiction in terms, for “niggers” come from sunny, temperate, sub to tropical regions year-round, no snow at all, unless they live at the top of Kilimanjaro, or the Atlas Mountains, but I get the drift. :-)

“Russia is a European country…”
The Saker on January 29, 2022 · at 6:14 pm EST/EDT
“I emphatically and categorically disagree…
…Russia is really sui generis, but she is MUCH more Asian than European…”
Thanks for that, Saker, and for your, as always, enlightening piece.
A picture speaks a thousand words, and you could not have chosen a better simile for the fading away “Great Western Wall,” that their sinking piece of trash.
404 delenda est!
The term “Nigger” implies that they (we) are dehumanized to a great extent that they (we) are treated as subhuman, just like Hitler had intended. It’s less about climate and locale, the “Snow” tries to attribute it in a sense to those hyperfocused on needing to place whatever Russian racial term in the larger Russophobic landscape.
I personally would have labelled it as “Vodka Nigger”.))
The English are always funny. Their ancient class-based system always thinks in stereotypes, thus ‘the Russians and vodka.’
And yet, it is British Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson (man of the people) who is now firmly associated with office cocktail parties. Apparently, not even a pandemic can keep the British Tories from gathering together for a group drunk.
Ha Ha…I met John Entwhistle the night after the 9/11 Concert at Madison Square Garden that The Who played at….I got the autograph…Who would have known he would have croaked a few months later……His bass gear was stunning to look at-something 200 years from the future…
And now I am deaf…that’s why I always use caps on the Saker Blog….
Bozo has just spoken and this does not bode well for world peace.
“This package would send a clear message to the Kremlin – we will not tolerate their destabilising activity, and we will always stand with our NATO allies in the face Russian hostility,” Johnson stated.
“I have ordered our Armed Forces to prepare to deploy across Europe next week, ensuring we are able to support our NATO allies on land, at sea and in the air.”
Should Russian President Vladimir Putin choose “a path of bloodshed and destruction,” Johnson went on, it would result in a “tragedy” for the whole European continent.
They always twist everything around – every blooming time. ‘We’ are going to deploy forces so if Putin chooses, their will bloodshed? Where is this move Putin’s choice? What Bozo seems to be saying is if Russia does not accept NATO’s continued encroachment with weapons of mass destruction then Putin will be choosing war? I just don’t get that reasoning.
The really nice thing here is, that BoJo anticipates the destruction of continental Europe – and clearly thinks, that the UK is not part of it.
Until he gets proven wrong …. The hybris and the self-overestimation of the UK establishment is a miracle to me.
I want said one sad thing, the master piece of Propaganda – Great Western Wall, is very very powerful.
I live in Taiwan more than 35 years, and I can sure you Taiwan (gov/elite/ and most Taiwan people) are in “Zone A” mindset (even geographic, economic，and linguistic, it should be more like in zone B) The media always zombie-like translate those BS western News from CNN/BBC/ABC/CNBC etc. They truly believe US is the best of the best, even after 2021 Afghanistan debacle.
I’ll give few examples
1. The pro-government media and anti-government media are still keep arguing US will save/betray Taiwan. (they never truly ask did US have the capacity/ability to do it, and what price will Taiwan paid, even in the more pro-china media)
2. They seldom mention Russia ultimatum is published in “public draft treaty form” and almost never mention the content/essential of those treaty (they only talk about it from Western point of view)
3. About Crimea, they never mention the Coup happened during 2014 Feb, and always use “Russia annexed crimea.” Almost never mention about the referendum.
And I have no idea it would ever change.
Hope someday it will.
Have you ever seen the 1983 movie “Deal of the Century” with Chevy Chase, Gregory Hines, Vince Edwards and Sigourney Weaver? If not, check it out. It’s hilarious.
It’s a dark comedy about how weapons sales are made. Chevy plays a freelance arms runner who’s trying to sell some weapons to a South American dictator. Sigourney is the wife of a salesman for a major US aircraft manufacturer who is trying to sell a drone fighter plane to the dictator. The salesman has been trying for months to get the dictator to commit, and finally commits suicide in frustration. Chevy gets hold of the salesman’s pitch material and tries to take over the sale himself.
Meanwhile, the drone fighter isn’t actually all that great. For example, if it rains, it fails to function. So Chevy has to do all sorts of underhanded things to try to get the dictator to buy the piece of junk.
I won’t spoil the whole thing. You really have to watch it.
I’m an American born and raised. I have advanced degrees in Philosophy. I’ve read a lot of Marxists, a lot of economics. I work in software. I’m not a stupid or uneducated person. If I had read this article five years ago, I would have dismissed it as reactionary, ignorant garbage. Now, I read it and think The Saker is absolutely correct. The difference between then and now is that was led to and joined the Orthodox Church. Part of that process involved a study of the schism between Rome and the rest of the church, and it is not possible to understand that process unless one first understands the difference between Rome in the East and the Frankish fantasy of Rome in the west. Praying to Russian saints helps to break down the cultural chauvinism, too.
We are Spiritually Russian Brothers from American Mothers. I’m glad I’m not the only one. I am a convert to Orthodoxy (from Roman Catholicism) too.
“what will it take to totally bring down that Western Great Wall?”
A serious financial cataclysm on the Western centers that doesn’t inflict the same damage to those in Zone B. Western culture takes money as the main concern so Western people will notice if their consumption standard severely deteriorates while the Resistance Axis survives unscathed.
I know what you mean, and as a Swede I have heard my fair share of it. But a big change has occurred in the West among the men who would be the ones fighting a war against the evil Russkies – the realization that our elites (* elites not in performance) hate us, white men, just as much. The impact on morale cannot be over stated : you need to feel you have country behind you when you are sent off to war, but today that is not the case. On the Swedish social media scene its a big split right now, on one hand the ones who think they are back in 1988 and want to do full mobilization and disperse the Viggen’s to their road bases, and on the other hand the realization that our elites hate us and we will be a minority by 2050 , that being “white” and “male” is problematic and despised but now there is supposed to be a war ?
It is interesting as Western “Civilization” collapses and dies, many Western Chauvinists get more fanatical. I lived in Japan 7 years and I can say the ignorance and hatred of Japan is generally as intense as that of Russia, Of course the Liberals have given up on rationality and logic and denounce anyone who likes the truth or logic as a Russian agent.
The F-35 is truly a horrendous plane, but the Congressmen who voted for it and generals who advocated for it are too cowardly to tell the American people they messed up. It shows you how depraved the Pentagon is. They all believe the slogan “perception is reality”.
Interviewer: Mr. Ghandi, what do you think of Western civilization?
Ghandi: I think it would be a good idea.
404 delenda est!
I can’t stand the slogan “perception is reality” yet I used to hear this said in the military very often. How narcissistic is this slogan?
Let’s imagine you are standing in the middle of some railroad tracks with one of those VR headsets with headphones on. You don’t see, hear, or feel the approaching train at your back. Will you get ran over by the train? Reality is the train and doesn’t care if you perceive it or not. It is your job to perceive the train and not the other way around. We have a real problem with narcissism in the so called “Western” world.
Except for the WWII generation (my Grandparents generation) I haven’t really experienced that much prejudice against Japanese here in California (I was born in 1981). Having spent a lot of time in San Francisco in the 1990’s, I did hear a lot of Anti-Chinese sentiments from usually older White Ethnic San Franciscans. The Chinese were becoming the biggest landlords in the City at the time and their numbers were growing outside of Chinatown in neighborhoods that were not traditionally Chinese. After 9/11 the Anti-Arab/Muslim sentiments in the US were extremely strong and I’m sorry to say that I participated in that sentiment back then and remained prejudice in that regard until I met my wife (a Persian Muslim from the former USSR. Now I have a great admiration of Islamic Civilization and a great love of Islamic Art and Architecture and Music).
There has always been a persistent prejudice in the US towards American Indians and those of Mexican heritage. Unfortunately that still lingers even though the American Southwest is largely a hybrid culture being both White American, Mexican and American Indian (being of mixed heritage myself I feel at home in the Southwest, it is a reflection of me).
Prejudice towards Blacks in America is largely underground now, but still persistent. That has a lot to do with Black Americans committing more violent crime than any other group (bar none) per Capita in America. Americans who hate Blacks just because they are Black is probably a very small minority these days but that could change as the BLM and Critical Race Theory create a backlash among younger White Americans.
As for the prejudice against Russians. I know it was present during the Cold War. There seems to be a strong anti-Russian sentiment among some American Jews (that seems to have it’s roots in late Tsarist Russia or Stalin’s Soviet Union). Of course there is some old anti-Russian prejudice among the Polish and Ukrainian diaspora in the United States, but other than that I would have to say that all of this anti-Russian sentiment in America is primarily manufactured via propaganda in the popular media. Especially since the Maidan Coup of 2014. That’s when anti-Russian sentiment went into hyperdrive and that was followed by the Syrian war propaganda and then the Russia gate Hoax around Donald Trump. I know that this propaganda has been around before 2014 and was even present during the Yeltsin years when a real US puppet was in the Kremlin but it has been gradually increasing in intensity throughout the Putin Era. It reached it’s first crescendo during the brief Russian/Georgian conflict in 2008 (which was once again provoked and encouraged by Washington) and then tapered off during the “Reset” of the early Obama years only to be set off again when Russia offered asylum to Edward Snowden, then blocked Washington’s plans for regime change in Syria. The Maidan Coup of 2014 was Washington’s response to Russia’s independent actions against their wishes and that’s how we ended up where we are today.
Thoughts brought-up by Saker’s article:
1) Western (European) paranoia about Russia likely traces back to the fact that the Khans nearly won. Successive Mongolian victories pushed deeply into European heartlands. At the Battle of Legnica in April 1241, Mongol forces wiped out the combined northern European forces. At the Battle of Mohi, also in April 1241, Mongol forces wiped out the central European army. Nothing of any size was left between the Mongols and the French coast. Europeans were almost going to be speaking Mongolian. Then, in December of 1241, Ogodei Khan died unexpectedly. Mongolian commanders returned to the Mongol capital of Karakorum for the election of a new leader. Europe was (barely) saved. I could see a deep (irrational) fear still remaining from that knowledge…
2) Europe remembers the starving-out of Ukrainian lands by Stalin. Millions dead. Brutal to the extreme. This old ‘bias’ will have to be countered by rational responses by current Russian leaders.
3) YF-22A vs YF-23A: As an (ex) aero engineer, I followed this competition closely. In addition to the political aspects, the YF-23A Black Widow II was seen as biased to the ‘interceptor’ side, with less dog-fighting capability and more advanced stealth. The YF-22A Raptor was the reverse, so it was more of a favorite of the ‘turn-and-burn’ USAF leaders.
4) Su-34M vs F-35: This is a difference in philosophies. The F-35 has a lower max-G capability, lower max Mach number, higher wing-loading (broader turning circle), and much lower weapons-carrying capability than the Su-34M. The Su-34M would ‘eat’ the F-35 in a dog-fight. The thought, decades ago, was that the F-35 would ‘plink’ the Su-34M from long range, before the latter knew the former was there. True, at the time. Today, Russian low-frequency radar (now mobile) can tell that “something’s there.” This is just an indication; it is still not possible to lock-on ground-to-air missiles to stealth aircraft. However, this radar can be used to vector Russian interceptor aircraft to the vicinity of stealth aircraft. So, by today, much of the ‘advantage’ of 5th generation aircraft over 4th generation has disappeared. (This may be why Russia has not allowed Syrian S-300/400 units to fire on F-35s over Lebanon and the Mediterranean. Accumulate data; do not reveal capabilities.) Note also that Russian 5th generation aircraft are optimized for frontal stealth. This would fit with not being detected until you can get within dog-fighting range.
5) Finally, there has to be a ‘provocation’ bad-enough to get the Russians to say “Enough!” and commit sufficient forces for the “Biden” clique to say “Russia bad!” and work to split any European/Russian collaborations. That is the goal. Currently, I am watching the MSM absolutely beating-the-drums to prepare the public for a “Russia bad!” programmed-response – no matter the facts on the ground. Of all the MSM news, this top-down ‘positioning’ is the most scary to me…
I agree with a lot if these points but I think the “racial” dislike of Russians is overstated. The British had similar views towards the German “Huns.” It’s all nonsense really.
Thank you for this great writeup. I totally agree with you. The west lives in Layla land same as the most people too!
I have no idea where the future of the West is.
If the Russkies keep playing their cards right, they might just save us all.
It must be obvious to all people in high office the stranglehold the zionists have and the evil they do.
I reckon it is one of the great cycles of human history that the Jews’ ambitions get ahead of them, they do something unacceptably abominable and their host says enough is enough.
It is up to the people of the USA primarily of Britain secondarily and the rest of the west collectively to reject the aggressive, greedy, divisive shite they have forced on us.
We have the antidote.
It is in the New Testament.
May the Russians complete their noble journey.
“I will conclude with a question: what will it take to totally bring down that Western Great Wall?”
Do nothing, they are doing it themselves. In the meantime, get to the moon together with other “East and South Niggers” and build a base, then found a colony.
“The entire world envies us – that is why we are the #1 destination for immigrants from all over the world. Even the fact that we have by far the biggest penitentiary network on the planet, and one of the most barbarically brutal ones at that, does not deter these immigrants. Clearly, the world loves us!”
Why not? Of course the West is superior and the US is A-Number-1, Double-Plus-Good.
What other nation in the world is so advanced culturally that they allow illegal immigrants to pass through their airport security using an Arrest Warrant as a form of identification!!!
The US is truly the pinnacle of Western Civilization – is it not?
An Australian walked up to a stranger and said to him, “Excuse me please, but I can’t place your accent. Where are you from?” The stranger replied, “Sir, I’m from the greatest country in this world, in fact this universe.” To which the Australian replied, “But you don’t sound like an Aussie to me.”
So consider the words of Sir Walter Scott in ‘The lay of the last minstrel.’
Don’t take it so hard, Russians are no different from any other foreigners.

FWIW both of Mr. Swan’s parents were from Russia.
I think you have heard of the great Scottish bard, Robbie Burns. He wrote some truly ‘great’ poems, some of which you may have heard. For Example, “A man’s a man” and then there was that “Such a parcel O’ Rogues” and of course one of his best known; “To a Mouse”.. Strangely enough, I have heard that Russians also appreciate the works of Robbie Burns. I wonder why?
In Australia, we had two major bards, one a deaf alcoholic from Sydney called Henry Lawson, and from Melbourne, a solicitor called Andrew (Banjo) Paterson. During the Boer war Paterson did some work, mainly as a roustabout with horses, and commented on the similarity of the Boer to Australians. Well, some would say that that couldn’t be right, but it was, and still is.
When I was at secondary school, the good old ‘Heidelberg Tech’, our soccer team was made up of three poles, being two brothers and a cousin, oh and an Italian. Those four made our ‘Australian school team the best! Then at Preston Diploma College, where I lasted only six months, I remember two Chinese students; both had the surname “Yu”, but one was called Ignacious and the other Hey. Somebody had a sense of humour.
And then whilst in the ‘Police Farce’ I met a variety of different people, many refugees from Vietnam, who were mostly of Chinese background, but also some from the Arab countries, and even one who had married a Romanian lass. And yes, I’ve met a couple of Russians, and I’ve never seen the reaction that you spoke about.
I even recall a scene from the movie, “A bridge too far” played by a well known actor of a US ‘Serbian’ sapper, and I had thought that America would have been similar to Australia, but apparently not.
And of course you have heard of ‘Operation Paperclip’ where Wernher von Braun or whatever and his crew were imported into America and based at ‘Area 51’ or whatever, for the Americans to work on rockets, but then it gets really funny as Professor James Van Allen used ‘Rockoons’ for all of his tests including testing out Fred Singers hypothesis of the magnetic belts surrounding the earth (Christofilos effect), so what was Werner and his mates working on during their stay at ‘Area 51″? Please do not tell me they were working on the ‘Saturn Rockets’ for the Moon Race, as most of them fell over or misfired, but the Russians?
Well, yes; the Russians! Their first rockets didn’t fail, they worked. The sputnik, well that worked as well; they may have been crude but they did work, and then the first men into space, cosmonauts Aleksei Ledovskikh (late 1957), Serenti Shaborin (February 1958) and Andrei Mitkov (January 1959) all died during their flights.
The cosmonaut, Vladimir Ilyushin was launched into space on the 7th April 1961 but his spacecraft malfunctioned and crashed in China where he was hospitalised. On the 12th April 1961, cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin in ‘Vostok-1’ was launched into space and was able to land successfully. On the 5th May 1961, the American astronaut, Alan Shepard was launched in ‘Freedom-7’.
Now during these times, one would recall that Russia was still suffering from the effects of the previous WW2. America though was not, but it was still unable to beat Russia. Why even JFK pushed for America to win this race against the USSR, but such an achievement was never possible, and so they lied, they deceived and they grabbed the loot, and the poor average American footed the bill, time and time again.
So the dickhead, the ignorant and the uninformed believe what their lying media tell them. So be it; it has always been that way, but I have noticed that very few of those that visit this site are rarely of that ilk.
And as for Joe Biden, well, he may think that he’s on a winner, but he is closer to the fate of James IV at Flodden, where the well-trained army was absolutely routed and the king lay dead with the beggar.
This ethnocentric stuff misses the mark. It masks the real agenda. The Empire doesn’t care about ethnicity. It’s happy to demonize or embrace anyone if it serves its interest–that is, turns a profit. As for the US war machine–it’s not about war, it’s about making money. Of course US weapons are overpriced and underperform–the point is to make money. Likewise the US healthcare system is overpriced and underperforms. It’s not about creating a healthy society, it’s about making money. In fact US culture as a whole is simply a commodity–from movies, to music, to fashion, to fast food. Profit, profit and more profit is the engine that drives the Empire. Behind the moral posturing is profit. Behind the sacred values is profit. Behind the Rules Based Order is–you guessed it–profit. And behind the endless blither about Freedom and Democracy is profit. The US doesn’t hate you because you’re Russian (or Chinese, or Iranian, or Venezuelan, or Bolivian). It demonizes you because you have something American corporations or bankers want and you won’t let them have it. The Empire is very good at two complementary things, 1) keeping people distracted, divided and confused (for this ethnicity, religion, nationality, and identity is routinely weaponized), and 2) exploiting resources and markets for (drum roll please)–profit for the major corporations and bankers. For the edification of all, here’s an illuminating interview which could no doubt serve as an excellent teaching aid for the good colonel’s classroom.
I say, well said old chap!
I’m sorry but I just had to put on the Pommie accent, but Rodrigo has put his rapier straight through the heart of this debate!
The epistle to Timothy was quite correct, the love of gold (profits) is still the root of all evil
That would be true if only Americans (many nations and peoples and tribes) ruled the world. They are just stick and money base. Nothing else. The world is ruled by certain esoteric societies that have their roots deep in the past. These people are not interested in money, but in power over man. And in destruction of the Orthodox Christian liturgy. You see, money is a means of functioning in nations that are not deeply spiritual, in those that are such as some orthodox Christians or some Muslims the goal is the destruction of their faith in God, the destruction of the spirit of these people. In Europe, that spirit was destroyed a long time ago, they are afraid only of the lack of money, as in America. Fraternity, liberty, egality are just lies that smear people around their mouth.
Excellent take Rodrigo. This whole woke business, identity politics or whatever is, to me, just a massive smokescreen. Black people are still getting killed by cops, minorities still earning less on average than their White counterparts and White supremacy still alive and well. Meanwhile, overall, both non-elite Whites and people of color are very much far along the race to the bottom. A post on a sub-reddit captured it best: “the elites have us fight culture wars, so we do not fight class wars.” Where Russia and China come in is that the western elite understand their divisive domestic tactics are not enough. An external enemy must be found to keep the party going for them as their identity BS loses its potency.
“Outside their truly satanic ruling elites, the USA have lots of good, decent and often very smart people. Lots of natural resources, including two great oceans. They face no threat from their neighbors (especially once they become *normal* and not aggressively paranoid) and there is still A LOT of wealth here. The USA also has some superb authors, composers, artists, maybe not in Hollywood or Broadway, but they exist. …
We focus too much on the evils of US capitalism just as we focused too much on the evils of Soviet communism.”
Thank you, Saker, for the reminder. Why Putin insists on addressing that country politely: “Pardner”, cowboy style.
The best analogy for me is the comparison between the underground railway in Russia vs. the pest and crime infested underground rail in the west. Anybody in the west should visit the winter palace in St-Peters-burg or the Kremlin and while their, take a look around how you should honor your fallen soldiers.
Russians are racially and culturally inferior. Oh sure, they are mostly white, but they act like Mongols (something quite terrible in the average western mind which knows *nothing* about the Mongol Empire, this is even true on the UK Ministerial level!!!).
Sad but true of the European, or rather Romano-Germanic, attitude towards Russians in particular and Slavonic peoples in general.
Russian Prince Nikolay Trubetskoy, a linguist and an exponent of Eurasianism in the early 20th century had something to say about this. Trubetskoy’s main idea was that Russia was not simply a European country but a particular, separate civilization saying: ‘The culture of Europe is not the culture of mankind.’
He held that Romano-Germanic [now, Western] civilisation was egocentric and ‘a man with a sharply pronounced egocentric psychology unconsciously considers himself the center of the universe, the crown of creation, the best, the most perfect of all beings. Of two other beings, that which is nearer him, more like him, is the better one, while that which stands farther away, the worse.’
Trubetskoy’s ‘Russian-Eurasian’ civilisation also takes into account the lasting influence of the Mongols in Russian history. Indeed, some contemporary Eurasianists (eg Alexander Dugin) have gone so far as to claim Russia as the heir to Genghis Khan’s empire of the steppe.
Russians obviously ‘stand further away’ from the Western Europeans and are thus ‘the worse.’
Trubetskoy’s description of Euro egocentricism, to my mind, also neatly fits the underlying principle of contemporary liberal imperialism pushed by the West: the more they are like us, the safer we are and the better the world will be — thus the necessity of imposing liberal democracy on nations big and small, whether they like it or not.
As regards military equipment, I’ve sometimes thought it bonkers to make eye-wateringly expensive jets, ships, tanks, etc in the full expectation that they will most likely be destroyed in battle. But I suppose somebody must have thought the same of the armoured cavalry during Alexander’s time…
whatever the west will be…it will be different from
Pres Putin’s Russia’s Ministry of Culture has published a draft order setting out “traditional values” that it says must be protected from encroachment by foreign ideas, terrorists, and extremists amid a “global crisis” for public morality.
“…According to the order, examples of these values include “life, dignity, human rights and freedom, patriotism, civic consciousness, service to the Fatherland and responsibility for its fate, high moral ideals, a strong family, creative work, prioritizing the spiritual over the material, humanism, charity, justice, collectivism, mutual support and respect, historical memory and continuity between generations, and the unity of the peoples of Russia.”
The report claims, however, that these values are under threat from outside forces including terrorist and extremist organizations, multinational corporations, NGOs, and the US and its allies. Among the foreign ideas said to be invading Russia, the authors name egoism, permissiveness, “amorality,” and the refusal to grant Russia a positive place in history and culture..”
My background is totally “Western”, but working in an academic environment, I met many Russian colleagues and I was surprised by one thing: their sense of humor. Is this a feature of most Russian? Of course this can be limited to the few people that I met, but while at the beginning they seems shy, tough, almost grim, after few knowledge I found them very friendly, open to help and discuss, also with professors (Russian physicists are top scientists, but they are little known). I noted their love for the “Motherland”, a concept that does not coincide with ethnic Russia (especially for a Tartar guy I know, he is quite accurate in keeping this distinction). I also met a Russian colleague from Donetsk, and as you can image we discussed a bit the situation as he lost some friends there. I feel compelled to apologize for the West.
I slightly disagree with you about the “Mongols orders”, because in Italy the propaganda during the cold war was more about the fear of the “Homo Sovieticus” (and let me say that Soviet Union did many efforts to strengthen this picture, whereas US concealed very well all of their genocides). The communists of Russia ate children.. this was a recurring joke. Fortunately, in Italy many people respect Russia as the heir of the Soviet Union, which was considered by one third of the population the Heaven of the Workers, some really loves Gagarin over Armstrong. But I confirm that few people realize the Russian sacrifices during WWII: American movies are the main source of knowledge, not books. But I do my best to restore the truth, at least among people that I know. This is why I appreciate your contributions.
Hope these few notes of my personal life are appreciated.
About movies and cultural background: you should take advantage of the fact that the internet gives access to media that mainstream western casters ignore.
Some years ago I took to see as many Russian/Soviet movies I could. I spent hundreds of hours watching.
That had a double effect, it allowed me to better understand and share the Russian ethos, and it also cleaned my brain of all the western lies.
And there are truly wonderful movies. Childhood of Ivan Ivanovich; Soldier’s ballad; Here mornings are peacefull; Solaris (which I also read the book)…
It struck me different approach, as compared to western movies. For example war movies, western ones are about some exceptional character that is smarter or stronger or more lucky than the others; Russian ones tell a story/tale, the characters are not outstanding per se, but pièces of a wider tissue, their actions make sense not on the individual level, but on the global one a recurrent topic is the sacrifice for the comrades in arms, or the Motherland. Take “saving private Brian” for example, a well shot movie, but what is the message? In the middle of an important action in a ferocious war, forces are diverted to save an individual, that somehow is more exceptional and worry of rescue that others… compare with “a Soldier’s ballad” or the darker “Ivan Ivanovich’s childhood”, the message us one of self sacrifice, because I the middle of an existential war nobody is exceptional or more worry than another. The war just be won at all costs, because either we won are all saved, or we lose and are all lost.
Sci Fi is also quite different. Take “Solaris” (for which none of the movie adaptations grasped more than a bit of the book’s complexity), or “roadside picnic” of the same authors. While western scifi is about imperialist conquest of other words (or mirroring projection of an alien civilisation much like NATO), the two about Russian book’s do have a big Mistery in them. Interestingly also, one of my favourite western scifi author is Isaac Asimov. Je wrote et n English, indeed, but I think his Russian background permeates on his works.
And if you go to media aimed at children…. Russian ones are way more kind and moral. Compare “Tom and Jerry” and “Haze and Wolf” (nu pogodi), and the wonderful “Masha and the bear”
Thanks for the suggestions, I take note about those movies. As for Stanislaw Lem, he is one of my favorite sci-fi authors (although we may argue that he is Polish) but living beyond the iron curtain he was less known than he deserved.
Hm… we are in sync, Andrey !!
As I first entered Germany in 1999, my conclusion on what I saw regarding me as Russian was “Russians should be of black skin, in order to not confuse Germans”
I would add to the article, that a very considerable part of the animosity towards Russia, stems from the very deep jewish hatred of white christianity. They know they have stopped them in the past, and with Europe turned into a Babel Tower, the Catholic Church in self destruct mode (both sinking fast); they see Christian Russia as the last enemy to destroy.
I hope for the sake of human kind and the collective evolutionary effort of life in this planet, they choke in their arrogance and that Russia does not fall prey of this evil and itˋs insidious ways.
good text, revealing text. The United States will become the UNUNITED States of North America. The European community will end. And we can have 2 Germanys too. In the south, Brazil will also be fragmented in the future (DISUNITED States of South America). Both the US and Brazil are a project created by Zionists. The first emperor of Brazil was of Jewish descent. EVERYTHING in the US today has lost its essence and originality, and is polluted. Even today’s Jazz, Hollywood Zionist screenwriters, science, Silicon Valley. All lost value and truth. The same is happening with Germany. The German Vice Admiral’s statement is ONE of the signs of the existence of 2 Germanys within present-day Germany. So we also have 2 nations within the US: 1- most of those who voted for Trump. 2- the East and West coasts of majority Democrats. This will create 2 or 5 countries, or similar to europe. The US will fragment. What has united the US and even Brazil so far has been the Zionists. The USA to be an empire, and Brazil to be a colony of the USA and England with its still “covered” natural resources. But this change on the planet seems to require a nuclear war. I pray to God it doesn’t happen, but all geopolitical events show this. All Americans and their prosperity have benefited from the theft of natural resources from other countries. Everyone and everything in the US has become artificial. Only the peasant people of the USA are innocent. Maybe the Amish or something like that. All the others are at some level complicit in or benefited from the looting, massacres, theft of resources that the Anglo-Saxon Zionists carried out. At the very least, guilty omissions. The world is at an impasse. To be more precise, we live to see historic days, because we have reached a crossroads, perhaps without a solution.

“The fact that Russians (unlike the West) never committed genocide”
What would you call the expulsion of the Circassians and the effects of the Stalinist attempts of forced collectivization dekulakization in the USSR.
Surely foreseeable in its consequences but not necessarily planned as such, those actions caused the death of a few million Ukrainians, Kazaks, Siberians etc., and the forced moves of another few millions from their home territories on Stalin’s orders could count as genocide in a wider sense.
What about Russians pal? Did you calculate the Russian victims or only those ones that is west calculating? For their own “democratic spread” reasons?
Well…everyone is probably guilty of something go back far enough…..to genocide is to be human-historically speaking…..
It very likely hardwired into human genes…this is not an excuse to justify genocide…
Jimmy Stewart’s daughter is a primatologist. She and her anthropologist husband wrote a book about intratribal warfare among lowland gorilla’s. That’s Jimmy Stewart from “‘it’s a wonderful life”…

No doubt that the Western European Alliance, with its historical derivatives (Five Eye colonies) and recent additions (Zionist Jews, Wahabism, etc.) has been an unprecedented cilivizational, economic and technological force……The tide is turning though and rather quickly.

I think, us “uncivilized barbarians who haven’t invented anything and who need some imported democracy and teaching on how to run their lives” must stick together.
Oh, you are a Jew! Hate Stalin for the fact that he removed you Ukrainian Hasidim from power over Russia (which the Jewish Russophobes Lenin and Trotsky “lifted up their skirt”, in the words of Brogstein / Trotsky).
According to the certificate that was provided to N. Khrushchev, in the period from 1921 to 1954, 3,777,380 people were convicted of counter-revolutionary crimes by the Collegium of the OGPU, troikas of the NKVD, the Special Meeting, the Military Collegium, courts and military tribunals, 3,777,380 people,
including capital punishment – 642,980 people.
And this is for 33 years, including the military!
According to the same certificate – and this is an official government document – for 1937-1938. about 1 million 340 thousand people were repressed for political reasons.
Data on the number of those repressed for 1937-1938, provided to N. Khrushchev .;
The population of the USSR in 1937 was 162,000,000 people.
Those. “repressions” in one way or another affected 0.8% of the population
Total innocent victims of Stalinist repressions for 1937-1938. 600 thousand people remain (convicted, not shot) – this is less than 0.4% of the total population of the USSR.
GULAG – the main department of labor camps, created by the Jews Blank-Ulyanov (Lenin) and Bronshtein (Trotsky) in 1919.
On July 11, 1929, a resolution of the Council of People’s Commissars “On the use of the labor of criminal prisoners” was adopted, which authorized the creation of a unified system of corrective labor camps (ITL).
Dzhugashvili (Stalin) sent prisoners to improve infrastructure projects.
Since 1930, prisoners of labor camps, included in the system of the Main Directorate of Camps (GULAG), have been building most of the country’s large industrial and transport facilities. From 1930 to 1953, from 510 thousand to 2.5 million people were simultaneously kept in the Gulag system.
In 1931-1933, about 250 thousand prisoners were involved in the construction of the White Sea-Baltic Canal, 227 km long. Gulag prisoners built the Moscow Canal (1932-1937), the Volga-Don Canal (1948-1952), dozens of hydroelectric power plants: other.
By 1934, about a quarter of the more than 500 thousand prisoners of the OGPU camps were employed in the structure of the Baikal-Amur camp (BAMLAG). They were involved in the construction of the Baikal-Amur Mainline, the laying of second tracks on the Trans-Siberian Railway, logging and gold mining. The prisoners also built the Transpolar Highway (1947-1953), the Kola Railway (1951-1953), the Sakhalin Tunnel (1950-1953), the Pechora Mainline (1937-1950), the Moscow-Minsk, Moscow-Kiev (1935- 1942); On the eve of the Great Patriotic War, the prisoners also built 156 of the 254 new airfields.
In addition, the prisoners built cities – Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Dudinka, Vorkuta, Ukhta, Inta, Pechora, Dubna near Moscow, Nakhodka, Volzhsky, as well as industrial enterprises, including the Norilsk and Nizhny Tagil metallurgical plants, Severonickel on the Kola Peninsula, “Amurstal” in the Khabarovsk Territory, “Pechenganikel” near Murmansk and others.

The Sake wrote: “The fact that Russians (unlike the West) never committed genocide…”
Just to clarify this important point: I know that the USSR committed genocide e.g. mass killings of Polish officers and intelligentsia. Are you making this a distinction or an omission (as in USSR != Russia)?
Technically it is not genocide according to the classic meaning of the word, but they changed the definition for the Yugoslav Tribunal. The USSR executed many many people but never did they execute women AFAIK. Nazi Germany on the other hand did not make any distinctions.
You seem to be splitting hairs in a legalistic way. I don’t need to be told that it is not genocide because women were not killed, please be serious.
It does not matter to me whether your think it (killings of Polish people) was technically genocide or not: my family was killed there (in Smolensk). I don’t blame the Russians people, given what I know of how the USSR was also not something the Russian people chose for themselves.
I would still like to have The Saker’s explanation for his statement though.
Yes i am serious. Classic genocide means destroying an entire people as a whole (women and children are not spared!) Modern genocide means when you kill only 2 representatives (like one being clergy, the other a politician) of a people from a town while sparing the rest(which was the case in one particular Bosnian town according to the Hague Tribunal).

Dominating the Skies; Russia’s Five Foremost Combat Jets Designed to Kill Enemy Fighters
The Russian Air Force today fields some of the world’s most capable combat aircraft, with the second largest fleet of high end heavyweight air superiority fighters and the largest fleet of heavy interceptors. An extensive modernisation program initiated in 2008 sought to comprehensively modernise the service’s capabilities, extensively enhancing Soviet designs from the 1980s to produce sophisticated new variants and derivatives with next generation capabilities and investing in all new airframes such as the Su-57. The development of new sensor technologies, electronic warfare systems, composite materials, engines and air to air missiles have among other systems all been imperative to developing some of the world’s most advanced and sophisticated combat jets. While Russia has also invested heavily in a land based air defence network comprised of over a dozen complementary systems – the densest and most advanced of its kind in the world – the Russian Air Force’s fighters and interceptors nevertheless play a vital role in protecting the country’s airspace and contesting air superiority over enemy airspace in the event of a major war. The capabilities of Russia’s five most potent aircraft in air to air combat are assessed below – and include upgraded Soviet platforms, their enhanced derivatives and an entirely new airframe design – the Su-57.
Su-57 Air Superiority Fighter
Currently fielded in small numbers, the Russian Air Force is expected to deploy at least three squadrons of these elite fighters by the mid 2020s. The fighter is a next generation analogue to the Soviet Su-27 Flanker air superiority fighter, and represents the first completely new post Soviet fighter in Russian service. The aircraft is currently being used as a testbed for sixth generation technologies such as hypersonic missiles, laser weapons and artificial intelligence. The platform integrates an advanced and heavy AESA radar and an IRST, with additional cheek mounted radars for superior situational awareness. Access to active phased array antenna (APAA) guided K-77 air to air missiles with a 197km range, and hypersonic R-37M missiles with a 400km range, combined with its large internal bays which can accommodate up to ten missiles, provide the Su-57 with unrivalled firepower among next generation jets.
The Su-57 saw its first combat deployment in February 2018 when it carried out airstrikes against Islamist insurgent forces in Syria. While highly capable in a strike role, with munitions such as the Kh-47M2 hypersonic ballistic missile and Drel guided bomb, the Su-57 is primarily designed for air superiority. Like its predecessor the Su-27, the fighter can operate at high 20km altitudes and at speeds exceeding Mach 2.2. The Su-57’s airframe is the most manoeuvrable in the world, integrating the most advanced derivative of the three dimensional thrust vectoring system surpassing those of its predecessor the Su-35. The new Russian platform is arguably the most capable fighter in the world in air to air combat, fielding a number of capabilities which the older American F-22 Raptor and even the new Chinese J-20 lack. While the fighter does not prioritise stealth in the same way as Western jets, it more than compensates with other systems including state of the art electronic warfare systems and a distributed laser aperture system which can blind enemy missiles. The Su-57 is the only fighter in the world to integrate such a defence system.
MiG-31BSM Foxhound Interceptor
A heavily enhanced variant of the Soviet Union’s first fourth generation combat jet, which was arguably the most capable of the Cold War, the MiG-31BSM Foxhound began to enter service in the Russian Air Force in 2015. The interceptor carries the heaviest and most powerful radar Russia has ever mass produced for a fighter sized aircraft, the Phazatron Zaslon-AM passively scanned array radar, which with a diameter of 1.4 meters is considerably heavier and stronger than radars on other combat jets. Alongside the unique ability to engage low flying cruise missiles, the radar allows the Foxhound to engage targets up to 400km away and to can track up to 24 targets simultaneously. The MiG-31 was the only aircraft built for air to air combat with a phased array radar for over 20 years, until the Japanese F-2 and American F-22 entered service. Other than the Su-57 which has yet to enter mass production, it remains the platform with the most powerful sensors for air to air combat.
The Foxhound is capable of operating at extreme 21km altitude, the highest of any modern combat jet, and is the fastest modern combat jet in the world capable of exceeding speeds of Mach 2.8. This allows the Foxhound interceptor to impart more kinetic energy onto its air to air missiles than any other aircraft in the world. The aircraft integrates a number of advanced munitions for beyond visual range air to air combat including the 300km range R-33, the 110km range R-77 and more recently the 400km range R-37. While most Russian air to air missiles are restricted to speeds of between Mach 4 and Mach 4.5, the R-37 is hypersonic with a Mach 6 speed. Improvements to the design include a heat resistant glass canopy, new avionics, a Baget-55-06 computer, four multi-functional displays and new navigation equipment. Other than the Su-27 Flanker, the Foxhound is the most numerous combat jet in the Russia fleet. Upgrades to the BSM standard are ongoing.
Su-35 Air Superiority Fighter
The Su-35 entered service in 2014, and was the first new single seat platform to enter mass production since the Su-27 Flanker in 1985 – from which it is closely derived. The fighter‘s airframe benefits from limited applications of stealth technology, with a reduced radar cross section under a third that of the original Flanker. More powerful sensors in the form of a new IRST and the Irbis-E passive electronically scanned array radar are integrated, and the fighter is compatible with new longer ranged missiles including the R-77 and R-27ER/EA with 110km and 130km ranges respectively. The Su-35 has also been equipped for strike or anti shipping roles in the past using advanced standoff munitions such as the Kh-35, though its strength remains in the air superiority role for which it was primarily intended. The fighter made its debut over Syrian skies in early 2016, and was the first combat jet confirmed in Russian service confirmed to have been equipped with the R-77. The aircraft integrates a large 14 missile arsenal, and has a strengthened but lighter airframe with far higher use of composite materials. The fighter’s manoeuvrability is further enhanced by three dimensional thrust vectoring engines, and it remains the only aircraft placed into mass production with such systems. The fighter’s avionics, electronic warfare systems and sensors are all state of the art and comparable to those of fifth generation platforms.
Su-27SM3 Air Superiority Fighter
Where the Su-35 is a heavily enhanced derivative of the Su-27 Flanker design, the Su-27SM2/SM3 is the most advanced variant which updates the design with technologies developed thirty years after its entry into service. With the original Su-27 seeing its capabilities increasingly lag behind rival platforms such as the American F-15C by the mid 2000s, the induction of the SM2/SM3 variant restored the Flanker to its Cold War position as one of the world’s foremost air superiority fighters. The two new variants of the fighter have very similar capabilities, with the Su-27SM2 representing an extensively upgraded and refurbished older aircraft integrating next generation systems while the Su-27SM3 is a newly built fighter which left production lines integrating these systems. To enhance the Flanker’s capabilities its airframe was reinforced to allow for three more tons of armament and additional hardpoints were added to allowing the aircraft to carry up to twelve missiles. New more fuel efficient AL-31F-M1 engines increased the aircraft’s range, while also increasing its manoeuvrability with a greater thrust. The engines also considerably reduced the overhaul time of the fighter, thus increasing its sortie rate. The cockpit was also comprehensively modernised to full glass, with the thirteen Cold War era arrow indicators discarded in favour of four multifunctional displays. A new radio complex was also integrated to facilitate more secure communications.
Perhaps the most significant enhancement to the Su-27 on the Su-27SM2/SM3 variants was the powerful Irbis-E radar – the same as that used by the ‘4++ generation’ Su-35 which entered service in 2014. This radar system is among the most powerful platforms designed for fighter sized aircraft in the world – rivalled in the Russian inventory at the time of its induction only by the MiG-31’s much heavier Phazotron Zaslon passive electronically scanned array radar – and since by AESA radars deployed by next generation fighters. The Irbis-E can detect most fighter sized targets at ranges of over 400 kilometres, and can track up to 30 airborne targets simultaneously ranges engage up to eight. Stealth fighters with lower radar cross sections can reportedly be detected at ranges of little over 80km. While deploying highly similar sensors, avionics and electronic warfare systems to the Su-35, the Su-27SM2 and SM3 lack the newer platform’s lower radar cross section, three dimensional thrust vectoring engines or extensive use of composite materials making their older jet’s airframes heavier and less durable. The aircraft are restricted to a payload of 12 rather than fourteen air to air missies. The Su-27SM2 and SM3 nevertheless remain among the most capable air superiority fighters in the world, and their relatively low cost compared to the Su-35 and MiG-31BSM allows them to be acquired quickly and in large numbers. As an upgrade program for the original Su-27, the SM2 program allows Russia to keep the Flankers which today form the bulk of its fleet viable for modern air to air combat – a far more cost effective solution than retiring them and purchasing new fighters.
MiG-35 Medium Weight Multirole Fighter
A medium weight fighter not specialised for air to air combat, the MiG-35’s advanced capabilities nevertheless place it among Russia’s leading combat platforms. Entering production in late 2018, the MiG-35’s sophistication is surpassed only by the Su-57 – integrating high end technologies developed for the next generation platform onto a lighter airframe designed to prioritise low maintenance requirements and ease of use. These include three dimensional thrust vectoring systems derived from those of the Su-35, high use of composites for a lighter and stronger airframe, a relatively weapons payload of eight missiles, state of the art avionics and electronic warfare systems and an active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar. One of just two Russian fighters to deploy an AESA radar, the power of this sophisticated system largely compensates for the small size of the radar that the fighter can carry relative to heavier fighters such as the Su-27 to provide excellent situational awareness. The fighter is also reportedly compatible with K-77 air to air missiles designed for the Su-57, which are extremely difficult to evade even near their range limits and retain a 193km engagement range. Ultimately while the MiG-35 was designed as a lighter and less costly complement to the Su-57, largely with export sales in mind, it remains highly formidable despite its lighter weight and lower operational altitude due to the sophistication of the technologies it integrates. Perhaps the fighter’s most attractive feature, however, is its operational cost – which at under a fifth that of its predecessor the MiG-29 makes it little over a tenth of the cost of the Flanker to fly per hour.
From reading your writings for some time I’ve seen that you’re familiar with John Romanides, so am I correct in thinking that you and I have similar thoughts as regards to the Roman identity being deliberately suppressed? My thinking is that it has been/is in order to:
Maintain the status quo.
Invent the mythology of the West. Such as the thinking that the West are the heirs of the ancient “European” Greeks. I realise when I read the thought of Russians as Mongols, and other times when I see such thinking as Russians being “impure”, that it is the same pattern I see elsewhere (modern Greeks are “impure”, “turkified”, “mixed”, etc.).
Remove the spiritual obstacle that’s preventing them from achieving what they want.
Do you consider the possibility that if the West suffers a fall or a severe weakening of the position it holds (at least with the EU, I partly agree with you), and considering that it is the West (mostly) that is behind the identity bending and reality distortion, that we may see a re-Romanisation of the eastern Mediterranean and not just a complete domination of the region by the Persians?
I have heard it said that the blood of the Saints will speak. The earth of the region has swallowed the blood of tens of thousands of Martyrs of the last two thousand years, which leads me to believe that we may yet see this possibility.
Sir, I have to admit having been fed with the Western rhetoric on Russia. In spite of that, I consider that the treatment Putin receives from the West is beyond stupid.
I also consider that the Western world is in an absolute moral panic with an internal cultural war on its hands. The front is within our heads, mine included. My almost useless metric for it is something around. Realists (you name it zone B) are under the offensive of the “Progressives” (zone A) and do not have a usable way to face them. Finding, discovering or creating some way to deal with reality, aka being able to sort truth out of the insane number of lies coming to me in an incredible variety, could be useful here.
My feeling is that the West is in hubris state. Old Greek considered it as the worst possible sin and we are fully in it. Connecting again with truth would be highly useful here. I feel bad for my world and myself
In the end, zone B is in the West. I feel like it is the majority. We’re sorely missing a way to recognize it. I wish it is true.
Sorry for the end, it is Sunday, have a bit too much alcohol in my blood and was with friends I love. I think it is a bit unclear.
Good analysis and great examples! My own experience as a foreign graduate student in the US is replete with analogous anecdotes. For starters, I was shocked to learn that a bachelor’s degree was considered to be a “final” degree, unlike Europe at the time. Given the general difference in academic requirements between a US bachelor’s degree and a continental European equivalent, I found this truly amazing. The US was a good place for certain master’s and PhD programs, if only because courses were imparted by some excellent professors and there were impressive library holdings (not seldom looted during the “Liberation” of Europe, 1944-1945). European education at the primary and secondary levels was also vastly superior to what most US schools offered.
The difference between (continental) Europe and the US is and has always been a psychological one, perhaps also physiological, as Franz Boas would argue. Americans seem mentally unable to understand they are not automatically number one in any endeavour. Most of the material culture that sustains modern life was NOT invented in the US or by Americans. The average American is just not capable of understanding this simple reality. Americans believe they are congenitally inventive, innovative and original, and more so than any other nation in the world. The handful of Americans that think otherwise (Gore Vidal, Ezra Pound, etc) are duly vilified by their compatriots, as Tocqueville already pointed out some two centuries ago.
As for the symbolic role of the F-35, I am confident many visitors of this site, as well as Andrei himself, are familiar with the impressive analysis that Philippe Grasset has been providing for about a quarter century.
Another (French) author who has made shrewd observations on the differences between the US and Europe, is Jean-Philippe Immarigeon (“American parano”) whom I was happy to be able to quote when doing my latest book.
the only original production/creation in the USA is Jazz. It is the only truly artistic work, which was not made by Anglo-Saxon-Zionists. It was made by the slaves of the Anglo-Zionists, by the Africans, with rudiments and fundamentals created completely in Central and North Africa. All other things were stolen from the Nazis, Europeans, Russians and other peoples. Zionists are nomads and Calvinism also makes them believe in exceptionalism. That’s why Chinese culture cannot be ignored.
, China, Iran and other, should start to demand drugs testing, simular to what one can see within sports.
Politics and such, is by far more important than sports, and yet sports is the only arena where tests are conducted.
Both the nature of their behaviour, studies conducted , suggests that the western Muppet Show is heavily fueled by and under the influence of illegal substances .
The only way to settle the white dust they operate within, is to
1) talk honestly about it on a international level
2) that some nations start to make random drugtesting a required feature for top meetings etc
its no secret this is a problem even in little naive Norway, and a not well preserved secret about UK and as for the US, i belive its the main fuel for all the madness seen and the complete lack of any traces of souls present within the elite.
both madness and lack of soul, clear i indications of severe drug abuse.
step up the game and start making demands…
yes, insightful argument. And Russia is the biggest consumer of heroin on the planet, also inside the country. Moscow is being subtly “taken over” by foreigners from the third world, who are bringing the American evangelical Protestant religion there, and others are bringing their addiction to cocaine and other drugs there. These Baptist, “Assembly of God”, Calvinist churches are ego food, made to eat away at the Russian WAY. The Russian oligarchy is indeed deluded by the shops of Paris, and plastics from the West. Putin is worried about drugs and NGOs, but he is forgetting other things. He who has ears to hear, let him hear! Millennial China has Buddhism, but Russia kin to the Vikings who also formed Germany and England, are drawn to the shallow culture and religion of the Zionist empire, which is essentially ego food.
Armstrong has a blog post about the arrival of a Russian Submarine off the coast of America this morning.
Good morning TheSaker / Andrei, this is the first time I am writing here, I hope this message of mine does not go unnoticed.
I am Italian, and I just wanted to tell you that here in Italy many of the people who have managed to not get trapped by the “Great Western Wall” have succeeded in this thanks to the works of a local writer. His name was Stefano Anelli (he wrote under the pseudonym of John Kleeves).
He has published various works on US history and politics, but these works have never been translated into English.
I think they are very interesting works, which perhaps could also be of interest to a non-Italian audience.
You would have a much better chance than me to introduce the works of Anelli / Kleeves to the American or English public and I would like you to try, if you think it is appropriate and if you consider his works of value.
You can find his works here: https://archive.org/details/20210314_20210314_1906/John%20Kleeves%20-%2041%20articoli%20sul%20Web/
Please note that I have no economic interests in promoting this author’s works.
I thank you for your attention, and for your careful analysis of the reality we live in.
Ciao Giacomo, sono Andrea, mi stupisce di leggere qui un commento come il tuo. Anche io sono un estimatore di John Kleeves, e ovviamente anche del Saker (che seguo da anni). Mi piacerebbe mettermi in contatto tra gente come noi. Fammi sapere come credi questo sarebbe fattibile! Grazie.
I think Europe can have a fair future economically and otherwise. The hatred of Russia is an elite thing – the propaganda is so pervasive, the clique owns all media and even higher education. The US is the problem – it has provoked many economic crises and hardships in Europe the last 50+ years.
Urgent to Moderator: I send you the link: https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/as-s-400-air-defenses-arrive-on-streets-of-moscow-russia-sends-final-communique-to-osce-do-you-intend-to-fulfill-key-security-obligations
As S-400 Air Defenses Arrive on Streets of Moscow, Russia Sends Final Communique to OSCE “Do You Intend To Fulfill Key Security Obligations?”
The vaunted S-400 air-defense missile system has made its appearance on the streets of Moscow, Russia, indicating Russian belief they will need air defenses very soon. Meanwhile in Belarus, President Lukashenko addressed troops and mentioned “war” 36 times, saying Lithuania must be no more.
We begin with a final communique sent by Russia to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in which Russia asks simply “Do you intend to fulfill key security obligations?” Clearly, the mere posing of the question presumes the OSCE has NOT fulfilled them, and behind the question, one ought to be able to clearly see, Russia is deploying its military in ways not seen since World War 2. ….

The main question here is about the reserve currency.which currency is going to replace USD as the reserve currency and on which model??Does the new wannabe reserve currency operates like the present fed.This is utmost important to adress Most of the west looted the resources of the world with paper .In my view just world is only possible with just reserve currency.
