Nato Article 5 is a mutual suicide pact if enacted against Russia.
How will that war be waged?
Announce to the Russians that “Hey, we have Article 5 turned on, get ready for war?”
Any war plan against Russian must begin with total surprise, total nuclear, EW, apocalyptic offensive.
So, stick NATO and the Article 5 where the sun don’t shine.
Bring me a war plan that attacks Russia that Russia loses and the attacker wins.
I’ve asked for one for two years +.
People talk but don’t think through the facts.
Russia cannot be defeated. The world will end if Russia is attacked. (Unless it’s Ukies blind drunk desperately wanting to join their Heavenly Hundred. Then it will be a short firefight and no more Ukies.
You can amass an armada, all the cruise missiles and all the tanks and armor you want, 5000 airplanes, bombers, attack planes, helo gunships, whatever. Russia will destroy the West and the Planet.
Russia has just cut its military spending by 25%. You think they know they have enough defense or do you think they are idiots?
NATO, now or in the future, will never cease to lose any war, anywhere.
It is a pretend alliance. Basically, the power of the US is poised against whoever it wants to confront. Right now, Russia has everything to make the US power totally neutralised. Since that is a fact, NATO adds nothing because it is nothing without the US. 0+0=0. That’s NATO vs Russia.
Article 5 is there so the members feel they have a reason to cough up 2% of their GDP for armaments, mostly sold to them by the US MIC. It’s an extortion racket.
Again, when you think of Russia, go look at Satan I and Satan II ICBMs, the Russian triad delivery platforms, and the S 400-S 500 missile defenses, and their EW systems.
No one can survive attacking Russia. They got out ahead of the US in the last decade, and Trump can spend the US blind, the Russians will maintain the edge for decades.
Putin, Shoigu and Rogozin bought nuclear dominance, missile defense and EW advantages. The Russian people had less luxuries, less consumer goods, but they have sovereignty and the Hegemon can’t take it away. One of the greatest military comebacks in world history.
You have a much better change jumping over the Moon than attacking Russia.
Napoleon’s beautiful grey horse – grey horses whiten as they age –
here is the same horse,(probably) when it was younger –
I agree with most of your comments, especially the premise that NATO can conceivably win in Russia!…….Of course we have to know define what winning actually is in a nuclear exchange between the US-NATO-Russia?
But on the issue of the world being destroyed I cannot agree with that, even if I concede the scenario is hypothetical and certainly uncharted territory.
Having studied various papers outlining the balance of probabilities in a nuclear war.
I do think the world will survive, its not the end mankind as you suggest but it does have dark caveats. Society will cease to function even countries that are not targets of an attack.
I can’t imagine why people would go to work if there is no fuel to run you cars, no TV, very possibly no electricity & certainly a stop to food production.
Its a nightmare of the world fit for vampires but in the end some will survive but most won’t. Still that is not the end of mankind as you put it.
As to the probabilities of a nuclear exchange? My view is Yes that by sheer miscalculation or by intent by a failing empire (the USA obviously) willing to sacrifice mankind for perceived world leadership as per her dicta as the self proclaimed indispensable nation,.. is indeed a likely scenario.
I hope I am wrong?
I think you are. When you also factor in the destruction of civilian nuclear infrastructure survival of mankind is zero. There are around 400 nuclear installations that will be subject to attack and will also get disconnected from the grid as it collapses. The power stations will melt down and cooling ponds will catch fire. The Earth will survive and the evidence of our pitiful existence will be wiped from the face of the planet in 200 or million years.
I read now the third book of Dmitry Glukhovsky’s Metro. An interesting reading of what post-apocalyptic world may look like. I don’t know if it was translated, it was successful so it may have. Get hold of it and read it. Great literature!
Think about this: in order to prevent a second-wave nuclear strike on China (which Washington WILL resort to, because China will join in a Russian response ro American attack), China must remove the US submarine fleet’s re-arming base, which is 40 miles from my home town. that is Perth, Western Australia, on the Indian Ocean, well below the Tropic of Capricorn, at a base called Garden Island. Perth’s 1.2 million residents will be evaporated in the ignition of an entre nuclear arsenal. The colossal fallout from such a catastrophe will circulate the southern hemisphere of planet Earth, along with that from the destruction of Pine Gap, in Central Australia, from where the Pentagon directs missiles, surveillance satellites and drones over China.
It’s even possible that such strikes could launched by China pre-emptively, if the Beijing leadership wanted to spike America’s guns. Either way, the On The Beach scenario whereby the South waits to meet the fate already engulfing the North, is false. We will all go down together.
You missed the point. NATO/US can not win in Russia.(caps removed.They violate the blog rules,MOD)
Older one but surely worth of reading:
“According to Pentagon data (which, according to experts, greatly underestimates the real figures), the United States in recent years has owned or rented bases in 130 countries worldwide. At these bases there are 253,288 soldiers alone, plus an equal number of people including their families and civilians employed by the military. These bases have a total of 44,870 barracks, hangars, hospitals and other buildings, and another 4,844 buildings are leased.”
The military, Zvezda recalls, “does not skimp on these bases.” For example, according to a Washington Post piece written shortly after the invasion of Iraq, officers of the 82nd Airborne Division were served their dinners by waiters in white shirts, black pants, and black bow ties. “Some of these bases are so gigantic they require as many as nine internal bus routes for soldiers and civilian contractors to get around,” Zvezda noted, citing a 2004 article by American political scientist Chalmers Johnson.
Where did we last see aggressive military thriving while the real population goes to the dogs? And the Gestapo watches over them to nab anyone who starts to think, let alone protest. I believe that system is called a ‘military dictatorship’.
What a delicious irony that such a place calls itself the ‘Leader of the Free World’.
But than is another aspect of military dictatorship – delusions of psychopathic grandeur.
And? You mean that 200,000 yanks scattered across the globe are somehow a formidable force? Yawn.
Not to underestimate yanks, but by the very design the strategical placement of Yankistan is mostly the intimidation of vassal states. Coordination of such scattered force is a logistical nightmare. And do you think, we, Russians would just sit and observe the movements of those lost souls assembling in more that a 10-30 thousand along any particular area of our border? That’s beside the fact – we’ve got the triad too. An attack on our country doesn’t necessarily mean the local fight. There are subs armed to the teeth that can wipe out Yankistan rather quickly. Yanks would be fools if they think that would sit out a conflict with Russia across the ocean.
Yellowstone is a major concern…
The world will never be safe as long as nations pitt against one another, when the one to go after should be not nations and its populations even though they participate in it. The defense and offense must always be against entities (governments, institutions, organizations, groups, etc) that hold populations against their will to push the agenda of violence and war around the world and within. I guarantee, even western nations (populations) would not want war with Russia, they know their governments/even to be specific orgnizations such as NATO, even go further, US entity(government) that control NATO is the headquarter. If we want to go further again, some entity within the US government controlling it to be violent. That is where we need to go after and convince its population against this entity. Otherwise, the cycle of wars will never stop more enemies of one another will continue if nations go after another nations or a nation war within itself) so let us say no to the demons that thrive on violence and focus on them instead in order to bring alliance among population of the world for peace without necessarily losing own identity and sovereignty.
Correction. The world will never be safe as long as yanks position themselves as an exceptional nation that has some sort of right to dictate other countries on their lifestyle. As long as the star-spangled parasite exists, the nations around the globe would be forced to arm themselves just to preserve their sovereignty. Remove the star-spangled parasitism and you’d be surprised how fast the world would calm down. Which comes down to a dilemma of what’s actually more realistic, the physical destruction of US or them learning to become an integral partner without the world of equal partners that work together toward the prosperity of humanity, each to the best of their abilities.
The last sentence “You have a much better change jumping over the …” contains a typo. It should read “You have a much better chance jumping over …”
Thanks. I hate any typos, especially my own. But, alas, no edit possible.
If I had known this was to be republished, I would have corrected. I also left a parenthetical open. I’m always embarrassed at not catching typos before I post.
Imperfection is our lot, eh?
Thank you Auslander for another great comment. Quite apt with NATO’s current shenanigans.
“Moscow slams NATO’s traditional anti-Russia ‘ritual dance’ featuring debutant Tillerson….”
It is mutual suicide pact. The question is – how far will they go?
While NATO is far from a paper tiger, the reality is they have zero assault possibilities. The two strongest armies of days past, Germany and France, are but a shadow of what they once were and it will take years to bring them back to even a semblance of what they were 35 years ago. This leaves USA as the main force in NATO and as such they don’t have the wherewithal to even vaguely contemplate a full blown attack on Russia in place in Europe. All this screaming in the western, and to an extent Russian, media is just that, hysterical screaming that is carefully choreographed by US PTB.
However, if US continues to slowly build it’s forces in Europe as it is doing now then this just might trigger the alarms in Moscow. Never forget several things President Putin has mentioned in the last year or so.
One, when talking about his younger days growing up in St. Petersburg he clearly stated that if he was pushed to what looked like a fight coming then he would get in the first blow. You can extrapolate that out to mean anything you want but my personal opinion is he basically said if he feels Russia is facing a serious threat he will strike first.
Second, he has clearly stated more than once in the last three years that if it comes to war against Russia he will have no inhibitions about using tactical nukes right off the bat if needs be. Now, again, you can carry that out to whatever you want to the point of if one TacNuke is tossed will it lead to a full blown nuclear attack on Russia which within a nanosecond of it’s launch will be answered by Russia and China in turn. End of argument and lights out for civilization as we know it? I would say yes and on the other hand it’s a clear indication of what will happen if anyone carries war to Russia.
I have precisely zero doubts that there is a reason President Putin is reducing the military budget for Russia this year and the 25% reduction stated in the article is correct. President Putin clearly knows something we ordinary workers don’t but Russia has clearly put herself in the capable hands of V V Putin, Lavrov and Shoigu and I think that the trust will be rewarded a thousand times over. Of course we will know over time and if that trust was misplaced, and I don’t think it was, then we personally in this household won’t care because we will be the recipients of the first round of any attack against Russia and we will not survive that attack.
We are often at 35th Battery and other places and often converse with soldiers, sailors and specialists from E1 to O6. They are confident, intensely loyal to Russia and President Putin and serve willingly. There is no false bravado, no ‘we can lick anyone we fight’ nonsense, just a quiet will to do what must be done no matter what happens. Every single person we know in this berg who has sons aged 18 and older have at least one son who has or is serving and more often than not daughters serving in one capacity or another to boot. While this city is a special case because of what it is and always has been, this willingness to serve is certainly not unique to Sevastopol
Bottom line, I see the overwhelming desire of everyone we know for peace but almost all of them fully agree with President Putin. If you want peace prepare for war and that is exactly what is happening with 1st Guards forming as I type. If you want to learn further about Mother Russia and her culture then read my books. They are ‘fiction’ but any good fiction has kernels of truth scattered through it.

An Incident On Simonka, NATO Is Invited To Leave https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ERKH3IU
As you quote VVP – if you want peace prepare for war.
thanks for sharing your experience.
My take on Russia’s decision to reduce the military budget is this: Russia is confident that its army is good enough and won’t engage in the new arms race. In particular, Russia does not want to increase military spending up to its economical collapse ever again. Instead, Russia is happily observing NATO doing exactly that.
Waiting for the collapse of the hollowed-out rotten empire. …crickets…
I appreciate your comment except for one part – “economical collapse in Russia”. I am Russian and live in Russia. If anything, we are experiencing an economic boom. My suggestion – stop reading western yellow press, they are habitual liars and would write anything that ordered and paid for.
A couple of days ago I’ve red that V.V.Putin has signed an order to increase the number of active duty soldiers to two million. Playing chess is a good thing. A few years ago, there was a post somewhere on a Russian blog about the probability of a war with Russia. Someone stated that there will be no nuclear war only conventional one and painted explicitly such a scenario which sounds something like this – if my memory does serve : ” the war will be concluded in Ukraine by conventional forces, Russian forces will not use nuclear devices because of the proximity of large civilian population (in east-Ukraine mostly Russian) and because of historical realities. The west will not use nuclear weapons because they know the Russians won’t use them. If the western forces will take a beat, they will make peace with Russia somewhere in the middle. The western strategy would be to have a medium timed war (what would be that I don’t know), to make enough destruction and weaken the Russian forces by retreat and attack, till Russia will agree to have a ceasefire and accordingly a peace agreement.”
Fascinating that Russia can both lower its ‘defense budget’ and raise its number of troops.
In the US, its the opposite. The increases in the ‘war budget’ go to expensive weapons programs that lobbyists have bribed both Congress and military officers into backing. Usually its military pay and readiness that takes a budget hit to make sure the latest boondoggles are fully funded. In the US, an increase in military spending no longer translates to a stronger military. Its just means more truckloads of money being shipped over to ‘defense contractors’.
Late to this discussion. Will post this anyway:
Responding to: “”Fascinating Russia can lower both the defense budget’ and raise the number of troops.””
The reason is efficiency. The RF needs to know where EVERY rubble is spent. Highly recommended reading is this report:
Statement by the Minister of Defence of the Russian Federation General of the Army Sergei Shoigu at the Extended Board Session of the Russian Defence Ministry (December 22, 2016)
Here’s a morsel:
Adoption of the State Defence Order funding control system has changed the level of information awareness of the Defence Ministry as a contracting authority.
Today, when we receive data from the authorized banks, we see how every ruble is spent.
Implementing the system allowed us to carry out more effective advance payment policy by turning to quarterly advance payment for implementation of the State Defence Order in accordance to the engineering and manufacturing cycle.
Therefore, we managed to reduce risks of overpaying the manufacturers and decrease outdated accounts receivable by 3 times: from 363 billion rubles to 120 billion rubles.
That’s just ONE program. The whole report gave me goose-pimples. !
Generals who fight wars using the winning methods and tactics of the last war will invariably lose. In an era of ICBMs, there will never be another March on Moscow or a Race for Berlin. At least not until the last missile is fired, in which case no one will want to go there.
The US Empire of the past 70 years has lasted because if avoids many of the pitfalls of direct occupation, using a concept I call Franchise Imperialism. Franchise Imperialism means that a leader can run the country any way they want, so long as they abide by the rules of the Washington Concensus.
Disobey the rules and you will be discredited via a massive propaganda campaign and then toppled.
The real power of the globalists based in London, Washington/New York and Tel-Aviv are those simple axioms with the $USD as the world reserve currency. The BRICS have figured this out and want the balance of power to change. They also know the debt based $USD House of Cards is about to fail and a replacement is needed. The only question is whether the transition happens in an orderly fashion or a via a descent into complete chaos.
Excellent Comments….Thank you!
In either a conventional or nuclear show down, I agree that Russia will prevail over her adversaries, however I think some of the readers fail to see that this is not how Western elites operate. They understand their military inferiority and have instead developed hybrid warfare to a high level.
They did this in Syria to a point where the Syrian Government was on the brink of total collapse and they managed to do this without any form of overt/direct involvement. The only reason they did not fully succeed was due to Russian entry into the conflict at the last minute. They will soon re-occupy Iraq in full force.
NATO expansion is not necessarily about military superiority over Russia, but about having some form of leverage/control over the process of Eurasian integration. They will do whatever it takes in order to delay and buy time, and bring more client states to their sphere of influence.
Fun comment by L445, definitely agree, but such knowledge didn’t stop Napoleon, hitler or raygun from trying. We know Russia will win, we need to quarantine the zionazi/capitalist delusionals that think they can prevail this time.
“Is the Russian Government Insouciant? Russia Provides the Spy Technology Required to Spy on Russia ”
Does Roberts have point or is he out of what Russian space technology experts and intelligence really know better?
I didn’t like the GR article. But the reason for that is because it seems true.Its shocking to me that so many in Russia are willing for the sake of trade to sell their enemy the tools to harm them. It reminds of the lunacy just before Barbarossa of train after train of Soviet raw materials being sold to the nazis.In fact there are stories that just minutes before the German invasion trains loaded with raw materials for Germany crossed the border. Its wonderful that Russia has such a fine military that we hear about.But is there some insane reason that Russia needs to sell materials to aid the military of her enemy. That very military that would be used to fight their own forces. As the article asks,are more Western dollars “so important” that Russia’s security should be put at stake to get them..
I guess that’s the difference between big business and government – its the same everywhere – UK selling arms to sauds to bomb Yemen – and on and on and on.
Finance is not under control – its a long story.
Rudolf Steiner had some good ideas about getting control of the money – but I don’t know if it can work now. Where is the planet going and where will we end up I wonder
Welcome to capitalism. :)
Wasn’t there a Marx quote about something to do with businessmen and rope?
This is at least the 3rd time this article was linked in different article comment sections. Makes one go HHHMMM!?! (I have commented further elsewhere on Roberts’ “permissible dissent” role in the US media firmament, and will not repeat it here.)
Roberts is saying exactly the same as the Russian 5th Columnists, that Putin should be reacting tit-for-tat to US/Zionist aggression of all sorts. Putin is far too smart to fall for such an obvious game… The US playing tiddly-winks while Putin and Xi are playing 3D-chess.
Do not disregard the ever-closer military ties between Russia and China. Russia does not stand alone anymore. The US will not be able to drive a wedge between Russia/China, if anything Trumpy’s upcoming visit with Xi should drive Russia and China closer.
It is true that so many of the voices one hears online are shills for the anglo/zionist empire, but I doubt seriously that Roberts falls into that category. As a former high ranking government official (Asst. Sec. of the Treasury), former editor of the Wall Street Journal and a long time respected economist, Roberts is exactly the kind of person that the PTB do not want out there speaking against the system. He has too much credibility to smear easily so they simply exclude him from the MSM discussions of issues. I have feared for Dr. Roberts’ safety for some time for the simple reason that he is so credible.
Controlled opposition? Yes, there is alot of that out there, but Roberts? Highly unlikely IMO. He is a relic from a previous era. He was raised in a very different America when things like honor and duty were more revered than money, gadgetry and bling. He represents the voices of millions of Americans who reject and are utterly horrified by what America has become.
No one ‘wins’ a nuclear war.
Actually, no one wins any sort of ‘modern war’. WW1 and WW2 showed that. One problem is that since the American homeland was not really involved in WW2, I’m not sure all of my fellow Americans understand that little fact. Look at pictures of the ruin left from London to Berlin to Moscow and understand that modern warfare leaves a city destroyed. And then understand that today’s modern ‘conventional’ weapons are far more lethal and far more destructive than the ones that destroyed Europe in the 1940’s. The battles for Allepo and Mosul, just to have a couple of recent examples, are relatively minor affairs compared to WW2’s epic clashes, and yet large swaths of both cities are destroyed in the process.
So, the main problem is, there is no winning war plan because no one is going to come out of any sort of war better off than they went into it. Cities would be destroyed, millions left homeless, and that’s if they don’t die in the rubble.
And, any sort of war is likely to go nuclear. The US doesn’t seem to believe in any result short of total surrender and regime change. And its highly possible that another nuclear power would be willing to use its nukes to avoid that outcome. Back in the 1980’s, scientists understood that even a small handful of megaton nukes going off would radically change the climate. The good news would be we wouldn’t need about ‘global warming’ any more. :) The bad news is that the clouds of debris in the atmosphere would drop the temps on the surface of the planet so low that few if any crops would grow. So, maybe a few of us Colorado hippies with hydroponics setups could grow a few tomatos to eat. :) But otherwise, trillions would die of starvation in the aftermath. And of course the starving people would fight more desperate wars trying to find a way to survive.
So, the old movie “War Games” was right. The only solution is not to play the game.
Late post here.
You miss the point of war entirely. If war keeps the elite in power, that’s all the elite care about.
France and WW1 is a clear example. The French elite wanted to stop the growing power of the working class. A graph of “working days lost to strikes” per year was on a steady rise from 1900 through 1913. Going to war was a conscious decision. It was discussed in print that France needed a war “to purify the nation” – a coded phrase for “to crush the working class”. France suffered 4 million casualties. Northeast France was cratered and looked like the moon. France was in an economic and psychological depression from 1918 to 1939. But … after the war, the wealthy were more firmly in power than ever, and easily rode out the waves of working-class discontent in the 1930’s. The elites were stronger for at least two reasons, and this is noteworthy especially in the 21st Century. 1. The “Socialist Party” was morally smashed because it had supported France’s participation in WW1. This treason to France went unchallenged, and enabled the rise of far worse “Socialist” politicians than before WW1. 2. The working class were relatively far more disadvantaged in the labor market due to increased poverty, even though there were 4 million fewer laborers than before WW1.
An important side note is that the left wing of the French “Socialist Party” tried to prevent WW1 because they understood the purpose of the war was to defeat France’s own working people. The “Socialist Party” leader, Jean Jaurès, was strongly anti-militarist. In late July, the German, Dutch and French Socialist Parties had a conference to try to prevent the war. Returning to Paris on July 31, 1914, Jean Jaurès was shot in the back and killed. General mobilization was declared the next day, and on the third day, France was at war. The murderer was arrested immediately but he wasn’t put on trial until 1919. He was acquitted even though his guilt was never in question. The widow of Jean Jaurès was required to pay the court costs for the trial ! The elite must have had a hand in all this.
This history shows that some elites have absolutely no conscience whatsoever and no limits on their power. Elites are normally very intelligent and quite dangerous. Would an elite destroy a nation to preserve their power ? Yes, it has been done before. Wake up and think harder.
The Empire’s intent is not to get into a direct war with Russia, it is to put the fear into people that there is the possibility of that so they can continue to support the MIC.
Like the Cold War of old, Cold War 2.0 serves to distract people from the problems of corruption and government abuse of power in their own countries and make them willing sheep ready to accept even further control and subjugation by their own governments.
For all the talk here about the global chess match and some people’s “mastery” of it, they are missing one key point. The set up and objective of the game of chess. If you agree to it, you are already lost because you are playing their game by their rules.
To illustrate my point. Everyone accepts the pawns in front for the setup and taking of the king as the objective. What if I told you that taking of the pawns and rooks are the objective and the measure of victory? What if I put he rooks, knights, bishops, queen and king in front of the pawns instead of behind them? How would you play the game then?
The Empire wants their cut on everything that Russia and it’s people own. That is their objective, nothing more, nothing less. And it will never change and it is not confined to Russia. The Empire wants it’s cut from every man, woman and child on this planet and will not rest until it gets it.
The Empire is not just the West. It is the corrupt group which controls most of the world and they have their loyalists in every country. Unfortunately many people unknowingly support this because they want their cut of the “free” perks they get in return at the expense of others (healthcare, security, pension, housing, lifestyle, etc…) It is inevitable that the empire will get their way because they are using human nature to their advantage. People will willfully turn a blind eye to the exploitation and victimization of others even if it is only thinly veiled because they want their free sh*t to continue. This is called the “Free Sh*t Army” and it is the largest force in the world.
This is a great comment except for this sentence:
“It is inevitable that the empire will get their way…….”
WTF! If that were true, why are we here flapping our lips?????
It’s easier to drive consciousness down further than to uplift it from the dregs, TRUE.
There are more dead asleep zombies walking around that just want their next hamburger and fries, stupid movie and piece of dumb-ass tail than there are heroes ready to die for humanity and imitate Jesus Christ: TRUE
The elites are a psychopathic self loathing bunch of demons that despair of ever uplifting humanity or themselves and have perfected the baser techniques of using fear to increase their mind control over themselves and others: TRUE
This must inevitably continue, forever!!! FALSE. For many reasons I may go into later. No time for a chapter right now. Change is natural and inevitable. That’s why the notion of “Stopping Climate Change” is so pathologically nuts.
Necessity is the Mother of Invention. Invent some ways to stop the Empire and continue the evolution of the human species. It is NOT inevitable that it devolve and go extinct, although that IS the death wish of the unconscious and the self-loathing “elites” and their mind controlled victims, I will grant you that..
Lucky thing for us, they are not at all truly creative and can ONLY work off the same dead end Fear and Control, Fear and Control, Fear and Control template over and over and over again.
They are not running anything. Their Fear Template is running them. It is our task to throw a monkey wrench into those unconscious mechanistic gears that have carried them away and enslaved them and defeat them, utterly by freeing them. Out of Love, of course. Trouble is they love their gears, their chains more than anything else they know, and it won’t be easy. So what???
It was my pessimism coming out saying it is inevitable. I have found my pessimism to be what keeps my expectations realistic since pessimism and realism are one flap of a butterfly’s wing away from each other.
As long as we have large urban societies we have built in reliance on government and corporate services. To this point, I would say people who believe Agenda 21 is about depopulation are wrong. Lower populations require less macro scale support in the forms of governance, resources and services.
All of those people who rely on services from their government are slaves to them because, when push comes to shove and the government cuts all those services until the people do their bidding, most will end up going along to get along. In most cases all the government is asking for in return is for people to turn a blind eye to the screwed up things it is doing to others.
As we speak, most Americans still seem perfectly willing to do this. The latest example is the Wikileaks disclosures. This one actually surprises me. I was expecting some level of outrage out there but dumb Americans are numb to it. Even here most people (including commentators) are numb to it. Here is a chance to roll back the CIA’s vast and blatant abuse of power and yet everyone treads around the subject like scared mice.
Maybe you have more built in faith in humanity than I do. From what I am seeing, the majority of the population is not worth saving because they do not care about saving anyone else and are too stupid to realize how screwed they are.
Prime example: Everyone was “supposed” to know about Allepo and the carnage inflicted upon innocent civilians by evil Assad and Russians. It was “cool” to be “in the know” on that. And now America is doing 10x worse things in Mosul and no one here gives a crap. Lesson: Don’t place any faith in Americans having any humanity. Sucks being an American and having to say that.
I’m also not too optimistic but there is a hope – at least according to my faith. The bigger problem what bothers me, is that we are here (I suppose) a branch of elderly people who are barking to the world (or sharing the barking together) non the less, often at high level of knowledge. But where are the youths ? what is with them, has the Empire get them already in their barracks by emptying their minds with the new technologies and mass-distractions, the multi-kulti revolution and other “sweeties” ? Just recently, in Russia, at the anti-corruption demonstrations, were young kids aged lower than 18 years old. They want a “change”. It is not clear, but they want something just not to be so boring… where would these youths lead the world ? The generation of Pokemons.
We put rabid dogs down because they’re a danger to the populace at large-are these psychopaths so different?
Russia(Soviet Union) has clearly stated the next world war will Not be fought on Russian soil. After losing close to thirty million people in two world wars who can blame them for feeling this way.
for the uninitiated, what is and is not, a “tactical” nuclear weapon?
Here u are:
A tactical nuclear weapon (or TNW) also known as non-strategic nuclear weapon refers to a nuclear weapon which is designed to be used on a battlefield in military situations. This is opposed to strategic nuclear weapons which are designed to produce effects against enemy cities, factories, and other larger-area targets to damage the enemy’s ability to wage war, or for general deterrence…………
Russia cannot be defeated, evn in defeat its spirit rises in victory. the moral high ground gives truth and justice the victory. “act so that the Maxim of your will could be a universal law”. The Categorical Imperative as elaborated by Emmanuel Kant is a high brow inter[retation of Love one another As I have Loved you, and Do Unto others as you would have them do Unto you.
And Russia being cold and rational is also hot and passionate, it is not only a Christian nation, it also lives in the True Path, it ives by the words of the true Prophets, it is the friend that would give you the last of his riches if you are a true friend, Russians have been through countless agressions and endless sacrifices, and it stll stands, with an open hand to those who come with an open hand, and the sword for those who come with the sword. Russia can make the mistake of trusting and receive a black eye, but beware of the response, it has never profitted anyone to approach with a sword.
there is hope and there is a great danger, cannot live from hope alone, cannot trust the ones who time and again have deceived everyone they have “befriended”. Russia is beyond the capabilities of most even of some Russians, they choose to be removed from that wonderous land and enigmatic people, they refuse to see, they refuse to open their hearts, and it is their loss.
Keep repeating the same mistakes, sleep lulled in your hubris and plastic comfort, but beware of your dreams to conquer and vanquish and rape and pillage, Russia will not be fooled twice.
Russians love life, and respect life, and are well aware of the things that life can bring.
Wwonderful interpretations form the boy who won the contest The Voice Kids, 2016, Daniel Pluzhnikov, 13, from Sochi. Reminds us that russia is a land of great poets and writers who Love Life, and Love Russia.

They Beat Us, We Fly
The only statesmen I see at the moment are from Russia.
The only sense I hear spoken comes from Russia.
I live in the UK, here we still have a sense of fair play and will listen to the actual words spoken rather than the flash soundbites from the BBC et al.
I have never been to Russia but I have been to Slovakia before the end of the Soviet era and again after, the change is amazing. I have been on business to China several times, incredible changes.
Ukraine is a mess of the West’s making and is turning fascist, maybe the Turkish coup was NATO inspired.
The West has spent up, USA is broke only way out is to steal from someone who has assets.
It will not stand the smell test.
“Russia will destroy the West and the Planet.”
Why should the Planet suffer?
Isn’t destroying the West who attacked Russia simply enough?
What has the rest of the Planet done to Russia?
Shouldn’t Russia focus on it’s enemies and leave the rest of the Planet alone?
Russia would be no better than the West if it aims to destroy the Planet.

This made more sure of Russian power. I will ask for asylum citizenship soon.
The Mongols were the only ones that managed to conquer “Russia”
I love this and feel ( I cannot know) it is true. When I read Russia was decreasing it’s fighting budgets I knew I was right. I am so proud o of Russia I cannot expresss it. Except they must never be erased as Hitler and the US planned.
I hope to god the analysis is correct. I hope that Russia (and China) can check the Empire of Chaos. Otherwise the human race will be up the creek without a paddle.
This whole mess is once again the Western European Empire that has used the US to build their Israel!!!! Still UK, Vatican, and Israel that runs D.C. Military . DC ….that foreign jurisdiction since 1871.
They covertly took over the banking system then the press, , courts, congress, and finally the military as Eisenhower warned in his cryptic last speech.
Americans are being genocided along with the countries that these murderers freely attack everywhere…..
Under the 9/11 patriot act they decimate co stitutio. And have recreated The Gestapo.. Bush style now.
It is sickening. Russia and the US together should have taken the old elites and out them in checkmate long ago. Hence the very reason they keep them apart . They will lose their power. US has no power .
DC has military goals driven by Israel and the empire of old . There is a reason they created that foreign Capitol after the American Vivil war they created as well.
They needed to split Russia and US forever after WWII that was the plan . They knew .
Such cowards ! The would in danger because of a few elite madmen!
The storms in US are deliberate and they are depopulating the country blatantly.
Americans saddened that we have lost all leadership and our old ally , Russia . Very sad . Like Germany , when the world decided to take the government out , the people just die because they are in the line of Fire .
100 years ago thry started the same thing with Russia until the body count was what over 66 million ? No one talks about that Holocaust ! Is it not obvious that the US after the Civil war was infiltrated, occupied by .Zionists used , and now being systematically discarded?
Several generations of social engineering etc …
poisons , eugenics …
Without leadership it seems such a large country of people that need to take their capitol back cannot do it because we waited til we were completely surrounded when obamw let in our enemies from every direction
I hate to see my country fall , but the government must go! Thry are commiting atrocities that this earth may never recouperate from innthr bame of Zionism and the
Bibi Netenyahu might as well have given Trumps UN speech . Puppet of Israel is every American president since DC was occupied . !! It is not the same country as pre 1900 when we were a non intervention country under the Constituion .
Secret treaty of Verona , signed by monarchies and VsticN made sure our constitutional government would never be left alone . Russia was a signatory by the way.
The same old powers are still running all of us into the ground .
Since jumping over the Moon is boring the ‘fun’ within says
“Yeah, let’s attack Moscow”.
Great and reassuring blog, keep up the good work….response from the west coast of Ireland. We sailed to Russia from here in Galway Ireland last year. Got a great welcome in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) wounderful friendly people, so willing to help. But do not mess with Russia, the last time their border was crossed they lost 25 million people. As Putin said “It will not happen again” the next time you may destroy Russia…But Europe and The USA will be smouldering ash”
Please read saker’s moderation policy regarding ‘no use of caps’ … please repost in lower case … mod
Field Marshal Montgomery similarly said there were only two rules of warfare that mattered. 1. Don’t attack Russia. 2. Don’t attack China.
When are the real enemies of all of humanity going to be destroyed, the Rothschild’s and Rockefeller factions along with the zionists, wahabi’s, Jesuits and the Roman church? Just saying, know thy enemy and victory is assured
The Jesuits were not all bad. Father Kino was a good man. The entire order was excommunicated twice, so they must have been doing something right.
I thought the rules were:
1.) Never March on Moscow
2.) Never forget rule 1.
I’m not sure why the author conflates the utterly decrepit and incompetent Jewish Commissar managed Soviet military of WW2 with the modern Russian military. It’s silly to insist there is some kind of God-given rule that anyone who invades Russia will lose.
The WW2 German military had no problem pushing to Moscow. They totally obliterated the Soviet military, over and over and over. They repeatedly inflicted kill ratios of 10 to 1, despite being way undermanned. They re-enacted the Finnish drubbing of the Soviets in the Winter War, but on a titanic scale.
The Germans faced two key difficulties fighting the USSR in WW2. The first was the Soviet scorched earth policy waged against their own citizens. While retreating they stripped their own cities of anything of value, including workers, food, industry, trains, etc. They left the old and decrepit, certain they would be an enormous drain on the Germans. http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v06/v06p-91_Sanning.html The second was the dual-front nature of the war. Not only did the US provide massive amounts of material support to the USSR, the Germans also had to face relentless war on the Western front. They were overwhelmed by a vicious gang, not out-fought.
Modern Russia is an entirely different critter. Without the brain-dead Jewish leadership to cripple their military, the Russians would put up a far better showing against Nato, including Germany. Modern Russian men are significantly tougher than Americans or your typical European. But… I really doubt modern Russia would enact a scorched earth policy against their own.
