‘The next war in Europe will be between Russia and Fascism, except that Fascism will be called Democracy.’
Fidel Castro, c. 1992
Europe is a serial suicide. The first attempt began in Sarajevo in 1914 and finished in Versailles in 1919. The second began a generation later in Warsaw in 1939 and ended in Berlin in 1945. Having very nearly succeeded at the second attempt (it missed atomic bombs by mere months), Europe sobered up and slowed down, waiting till the centenary of 1914 before it tried for the third time. This attempt began in Kiev, again in Eastern Europe, in 2014 and is continuing in the Special Military Operation (SMO). At every attempt Europe has lost. The first time it lost three empires (the Russian, the Austro-Hungarian and the German), the second time two Empires, the fatally weakened British and French, so ensuring the supremacy of the American Empire in Europe, as in the rest of the world.
What will Europe lose this time? It will lose the only Empire remaining – the EU. When? Only some time after the conclusion of the SMO. Now, it would be foolish to predict with exactitude when that, which is the culmination of Europe’s third attempted suicide, will be. It could all be over in early July. Alternatively it could drag on for years. However, both those outcomes are extreme possibilities and there are other possibilities inbetween. Nevertheless, some tendencies are clear. It is only the extent and speed at which they will progress that is uncertain. In any case, whatever happens in the Ukraine, Europe will be reformatted. It will never be the same again. The seed sown by the Western elite in Kiev in 2014 is being reaped today in the harvest of division, discontent and poverty in Europe.
If we look at the three aims of the Special Military Operation, we can see that the first and second aims, the liberation of the Donbass and demilitarisation, are both 75% done, despite new arrivals of Western arms to prolong the agony. However, the reality is also that the operation has had to be much extended from the Donbass to the east and south of the Ukraine and there we are not even 50% done. However, the third aim, the denazification of the Ukraine, has not even begun and cannot begin until the murderous Zelensky regime has been replaced with a government which actually cherishes the independence and cultural traditions of the Ukraine. Then it will no longer be a servile chimpanzee of the LGBT West and its Nulands who, very politely speaking, have no time for Europe.
Some have criticised the Allied Special Operation in the Ukraine. After four months, they say, not even the whole of the Donbass has yet been liberated. Such critics should get out of their armchairs and go and fight against NATO. We would soon see how fast they would go. Why has progress been ‘slow’? Firstly, because though the Allied Forces are small in size, they are fighting against the vast bulk of the Kiev Army, which has been trained, retrained, supplied and resupplied and dug into its fortified positions by NATO over eight years. Secondly, because the Allies are trying to avoid civilian casualties and of course casualties to themselves. That is not easy when Kiev is using civilians as human shields and shelling from residential areas. The Allies will not carpet-bomb like the West. There is no hurry.
However, with the very recent events in Severodonetsk and Lisichansk, the gateway to the whole of Central and Western Ukraine is being opened. Thus, we read the report on 25 June: ‘The Office of the President ordered the transfer of all reserves from the Mykolaiv/Odessa/Kharkiv direction for a counterattack in the Severodonetsk direction’. In other words, Kiev has only reserves left and it wants to transfer all of them. This sounds like desperation – the end is near. Judging by the quality of Kiev’s reserves so far, this will be a walkover. And that firstly presumes that the reserves will be willing to be massacred. And that secondly presumes that they can be transferred when all around the roads are occupied by Allied troops, or are controlled by Russian radar, artillery, drones and aircraft.
Most significantly of all, this means that Mykolaiv/Odessa/Kharkiv will be left more or less defenceless, without even reserves. According to serious Western data, Ukrainian military losses are about 200,000 killed with nearly three quarters of military equipment and ammunition destroyed. In just four months. This is catastrophic. If even Western spies from MI6, the BRD and Poland say this, then there is little future or hope for the US puppets in Kiev. We can only expect military collapse and the formation of a new government, authentically pro-Ukrainian (that is anti-American) and therefore pro-Russian. What happens after the liberation of the Ukraine? The liberation of Moldova? Of the Baltics? We do not know. But if aggressive NATO/EU sabre-rattling continues, all is possible.
Economic, Political and Ideological
As we know, the Western anti-Russian sanctions, have been a self-imposed economic disaster, an own goal. Blowback has been nasty. Dedollarisation is happening. Pay in roubles, please. Now. Food, fertiliser, oil, gas, all are rocketing in price, and it is not winter. Popular discontent and street demonstrations in Western Europe are mounting. In France the Rothschild candidate Macron has lost control of the French Parliament to the left and to the right. In the UK the ‘delusional’ (the word of members of his own Party) Johnson (a man condemned by his own as ‘an opportunistic journalist who has at his heart a moral vacuum’) is seen as a liability, who will lead the Tory Party to annihilation in any election. We will not speak here of other nonentities like Scholz, Draghi, Trudeau and Biden.
Then there is the formation of alternatives to the Western bloc. A new G8/BRICS+? Russia has seen plenty of discreet and not so discreet support from China, India, Kazakhstan, Brazil, Iran, Indonesia, Africa (from Egypt to South Africa), Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Argentina, Hungary…. That is, from the aptly-named ‘emerging’ world on all five Continents, from those who have raw materials and manufacturing infrastructure. They want to emerge from the ruins of colonialism and neo-colonialism. The isolated West, the US, Canada, UK, EU, Australia, has few friends outside its inward-looking little world. There are just a few occupied vassals in Asia, like Israel, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea, who are forced to buy Western arms in order to stop themselves being liberated from themselves, and that is it.
Even the mercenaries of the State-controlled Western media are beginning to go back on their State-paid lies. They are used to turning everything on its head, to inverting it all. Thus, the Russian Army was composed of ‘demoralised and untrained raw conscripts’, who had suffered ‘massive losses’ and ‘lacked fuel and ammunition’, ‘raped children and murdered’, were ‘in full retreat’ and bombed and shelled ‘residential areas and civilians’. Just change the word ‘Russian’ to ‘Kiev’ and we are a lot nearer the truth. Does anybody believe these media lies any more? Surely only the living dead? It must be embarrassing for these hacks who have been telling, or rather were ordered to tell, the opposite of the truth. They used to report their dreams as reality. Now they have to report reality – their worst nightmares.
Conclusion: The Age of Empires Is Over
After the Western defeats, or rather routs, in Iraq and Afghanistan, NATO has no military or political future. In fact, it should have been abolished after the fall of the USSR. The Ukraine (or whatever it will be called in whatever borders it will have when its liberation is complete) is Russian. Just forget it, NATO. You have already lost. The expansion of NATO into Asia? What a joke. Taiwan is Chinese, as will be all the Western Pacific. Just forget it, NATO. You have already lost. The American Century which began in February/March 1917 with the palace revolt by corrupt aristocrats and generals in the Russian Empire, carefully orchestrated from London and New York, is over. Europe no longer needs to attempt suicide, let alone succeed. You are free to restore the sovereignty of your nation states.
The fact is that the Age of Empires is over. 1917 signalled the beginning of this. In 1991 the Red Star (USSR) Empire collapsed. Today the White Star (USSA) Empire, with its Twelve-Star EU (USSE) vassal Empire in tow, is collapsing, and for exactly the same reason: because nobody believes in their ideologies any more. Both Communism and Capitalism have failed. Now is the Age of Free Alliances of Sovereign Nations. What is the future of Europe after its third failed attempt at suicide? It is in reintegrating the Sovereignty of Eurasia, protected by the Russian resource umbrella. The Atlantic never united Europe, it divided Europe. If those who live across the Atlantic want to rediscover from us how to start living normal lives again, they can. But it will be on our terms, those of our Sovereignty, not on theirs.
We have spoken of the Special Military Operation as the culmination of Europe’s third attempted suicide. We have said that Europe will never be the same again after it. This is because, unless Europe is really serious this time about suicide (and it has managed to avoid it twice before), this Operation Z is going to split up the tyrannical Western world, EU and UK Europe, from the USA. It is Operation Z+. And who are we, those who will survive? We are Generation Z+. We are those who will come ‘out of great tribulation’ and survive. We are those who are going to live in the real Global world, not in the Western bubble Globalist world. We are the real Europeans of ancient and new European history, who refused to commit suicide, the Sovereign Europeans. Reality is dawning at last.
Certainly Ukraine is committing Suicide by Cop (or rather by Super Power) now,
The whole western world and more (USA, EU, Canada, and Australia) are certainly committing suicide. Watching history repeat its self solidified my faith in Christ and the Bible as a great understanding of the future. Nations are drawing up sides and making alliances for a brand new age. Much like the Roman Empire the fall of the west is lead by insane leadership, hold on to Christ tightly it’s going to get worse.
The West likes to blame the pandemic for the current economic situation. It was the government response to the pandemic that became the hammer that destroyed economies.
The good news is that the same people responsible for the pandemic response are in charge of the Ukraine response. We can expect the Western World to once again take a hammer to itself. So far, they are doing a bang-up job.
Gracias al comunismo China es lo que es y sin ella Rusia no podría levantarse.
Giant neighbours Russia and China belong together. They have each experienced wonky comunismo and ruthless capitalism in recent history. They have the maturity to take the best from each system. They have the gravity to attract their neighbours in Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Central Asia. And the rest of the world. But this is a world community, not an empire.
Sounds beutifull!! 🙏 May God bless Russia with victory over the US/father of lies and his vassal states of lies, in the mean time we in South Africa are waiting for the total imminent collapse of our economy resulting in anarchy.
Yup, the news is not good. But you know, I said to some of my correspondents there that you are well placed being in BRICS and all. It is only a question of governmental will, and we know about that!
Yes South Africa is already living the collapse of our infrastructure. We will have to return to coal stoves and heating. Hurrah.
amarynth, sou do Brasil. Você tem alguma opinião sobre a situação do Brasil nesse cenário que se projeta??
As an American, I fully support Russia and it war against the globalist. That’s who truly owns Ukraine, the globalists. There is about to be a major revolt in the USA, hopefully peaceful by absolute massive voter turnout in November (you can’t cheat if people vote in person and in vast numbers). If that doesn’t work, it will be war on our continent soon and America will regain it’s freedom from the globalists who have infiltrated and bought our politicians. The globalist will hang from the street poles across the country and I can only assume hundreds of thousands of deaths, maybe millions, of those who sold out their country and countrymen. I for sure will not sit back and allow this to happen without a fight.
Both GWB elections were stolen, as was the nomination of ROmney instead of Paul. Voting in person had nothing to do with the ensuing fraud.
I disagree. The massive fraud was enabled by mail in only balloting. With exit polls impossible, fraud on the level that was nessissary to flip the election became possible to obfuscate. The lie has been continually reinforced daily by corrupted media organizations.
I happen to live in the state that mail in only was pioneered and perfected enough for it to have a chance nationwide. Covid was exactly what was needed to hide the operation enough to pull it off.
Investigate 2004 Rossi/ Gregoire gubernatorial election. The techniques used were next used in Minnesota to get Al Frankin elected to the senate. Also investigate highest ranking republican west coast politician. Who now works for the Brandon administration. This person facilitated the implementation of mail in only.
Spoiler the gubernatorial election was the first statewide election obviously stolen. The US attorney that could have called for a federal investigation at the time but didn’t was fired by the Bush administration shortly afterwards.
This state is a backwater that doesn’t get much national attention & also has a long history of corruption the legacy population has always went along as long as they weren’t personally affected much.
The history of the corruption and various schemes ( there are many instances) is interesting in a sick way.
This state you speak of must be Oregon, no?
As an American, I also fully support Russia in this war against the globalist. This has been a long time coming, and I couldn’t be happier. What a time to be alive. I have been mentally, spiritually, and physically preparing myself and my family for this gradually over the past 10 years. I gladly will stand with others in the fight to get a new America established one based on TRUTH. I don’t have much hope for our system, no matter how much voters turn out. I am prepared and willing to sacrifice what is necessary, to end the current Western system. It all needs to go in my opinion, and not a single scrap is worthy of keeping.
‘What happens after the liberation of the Ukraine?’
That’s easy. By then, all of the US-supplied “robot dogs” will have been captured by Russia and its allies and retrained to assist in the clean-up effort.
Not a joke. See https://www.rt.com/news/557898-robot-dog-ukraine-demining/
thank you, b.
and now nato is going to build up to 300,000, according to its head, Stoltenberg. and i’m sure many more “tactical” nuke capable planes and missile launchers.
we already know that they will use false flags as an excuse to go in immediately and bomb a country to oblivion. it may be later, when suspicions have died down.
they have spawned a horrifying new world, full of savage arms and people, and now it will continue to grow, as China and Russia (and others?) will have to join in building up forces to keep any semblance of sovereignty. the ghouls are so insane that they may destroy human life.
i should say “we,” but i am no longer with my home country in spirit. i spent much of my life working to make it better, but i am now defeated. perhaps i will find some way to change things, but i don’t see it today.
i pray for Russia and the world. i’m enraged and so sad. but every advance and consolidation at least gives me some faith that good will win.
The false flag may well have just occured.
War in Ukraine
Russian missile strike hits shopping centre in Kremenchuk, Ukraine
A Russian missile strike hit a crowded shopping centre in the Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk on Monday, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said. An estimated 1,000 people were inside the building at the time of the attack, though the number of casualties is unknown. Meanwhile, leaders from the G7 nations meet in Germany, where possible further actions against Russia are expected to be discussed.
Timing is everything …
United States government official
This morning I met with @Bundeskanzler
Olaf Scholz to discuss our common objective of supporting Ukraine in the defense of its democracy against Russian aggression and a range of shared priorities the G7 will advance together.
Ukraine is filled with Russian spies and informers. The mall was obviously being used a military site. Russia has to know where every major military site is from all the Russian speaking people and the Russian friendly Ukrainians who are mixed into the general population.
The Mall was not a military site – it was next to one. But the damage was probably caused by a Ukranian AA missile. As for the ‘1000’ casualties – there were a dozen or so cars in the park – presumably they were all 12 seaters.
9:00 AM alleged ‘missile strike’. Not normal, peak shoppinghours. Would the evil Russians not want to maximize the pain and suffering? Perhaps they do not know how to read a watch?
Almost no cars parked in shopping mall from the videos that I saw. Very odd.
Finally, first reports said around 20 dead.
Later ‘official’ reports from ‘the comedian’ cite “Unimaginable numbers of dead.”
“Unimaginable”, perhaps, because there aren’t any.
Looks more like staged arson.
Ghost of Kiev all over again.
This story about Kremenchug is a fake story , the same as a story about Bucha and many others.
Polar bear that is just how I feel!
I love where i live but can’t stand my government and am sickened by the ignorance of americans
“nato is going to build up to 300,000, according to its head, Stoltenberg. and i’m sure many more “tactical” nuke capable planes and missile launchers.”
They’ll be lucky if they can build 300 – especially as they will have no gas to power the factories.
Remember the 54 valiant “moderate” Islamic rebels they trained in Syria, at a cost of half a billion dollars?
Thank You! Just – thank you!!
Brilliant!. As european I cannot be more eternally grateful to Russia and its peoples.
But please don’t rest until the imperial toxicity has its life diluted for good.
Many, many Zhanks
No, Europe has been killing and stealing since the fifteenth century, becoming with racism and greed the greatest tragedy of humanity for six centuries.
He has the merit of having turned the Christian doctrine of love into one of murderers and thieves blessed by Pope Alexander VI with his killing, enslaving and robbing non-whites.
But it seems his time is coming.
Suicide is indeed an apt metaphor. However, given the zio-con takeover of US foreign policy, the only question is whether those psychopaths will gain enough control to commit the ultimate nuclear suicide-genocide.
It is of no use to claim any Victory, if you then again will be ruled by Zionists (aka Soviet Union). If the next war is just to kill other White People, we just repeat exactly the mistakes of the past.
You, and we in the West. must recognize the real enemy, the people who flourish when we kill each other. You may think that you “win” and we “lose”, but in the case of war between us and you, the only winner is the Zionist. Make no mistake.
Yawn, petty melanin first world issues, more reason for the West to die off.
As someone in Zone A sympathetic to the Russian cause:
How to personally prepare for the new multipolar order ?
Put assets into gold ? Rubles ? Start to learn Russian/Chinese ? Start a sleeper cell ?
I would really like to know this as well. I have fought every war brought by my government This one has blown my mind as all the so called anti war people have gone silent. Where to go and fight in my own country. How do I protect myself from my own government? It would be nice if Hudson would give us some advice.
Best advice? Agitate for the break up of the USA. That’s the only way to get rid of the head of the Federal Government snake in Washington.
Maybe the insane reactions of an insane population to the ‘overthrowing’ of the Roe V Wade ruling, or at least devolving such matters to the indivudual states, is the corpoate-made mass mind sensing that it has received a major wound.
I suspect that Mr. Hudson and other online authors can only give the most general sort of advice, at least as far as assets and risks are concerned; otherwise there are agencies out there who would be delighted to complicate their lives by claiming that the are publicly dispensing “financial advice”.
As a old person of fairly modest means, living in the FUSA, I try to stay “diversified”; it’s really not that hard to open a foreign bank account, though it will complicate your tax filings. I refuse to put money in the FUSA stock market, if only for vague moral reasons. My big question personally is whether I want to grow old(er) and die in the FUSA; the trade-offs involved in such a decision are obviously very much personal.
move to Texas
PLEASE Don’t! :)
I’m from Australia, but I’m an off grid prepper in mindset, something that many Americans are familiar with. My direct advice is to ensure that you use decentralised systems.
1) Power. Solar+battery, with a small wind generator to trickle power in to the batteries overnight. The wind $\W is shockingly bad so you may prefer more solar+more battery. Up to you.
2) Water. A large tank. I have an 80,000L, but I think I should have 2. A bore is a good idea.
3) Climate. Live somewhere where a simple log file is good enough to heat the home. I put R6 (this highest rating here) in walls and ceiling. Disconnect yourself from the need to consume gas\heating oil to not die from cold. Wood is fine, but you need an ample supply.
4) Arable land. You’ll need some land that if you are pressed can supply you with all of your nutritional needs. Sure, a family of 4 can live of a 1/4 acre of potatoes but you’ll die from boredom first. I suggest you ,look at fast breeding chickens first, and branch out from there. There are load of fun options in Aquaponics to various livestock. All are high effort. The advantage of animals is that a living animal needs no refrigeration\power.
5) Resilient neighbors, community, etc. In general, smaller towns are better for this. You don’t want to suddenly find yourself as everyone else savior.
6) Health. Take immediate action to get fit. Most modern health problems are the result of crappy lifestyles. I decided to become a powerlifter with a home rack. I take no medication.
7) Location. You want somewhere that just doesn’t matter. Sealed road is idea, but often means that the area matters. I picked a spot that literally nobody else wanted to go to. 250km out of Sydney.
In everything you do ask yourself ‘can I exist on my own for X months’. Then ramp that number up and see how you go. 6 months? Got spares of important things like tools? Primitive backups like an outdoor wood fired BBQ? Hand pumps\winches?
Easiest way to transition to this is to get a ‘Work from Home’ job, then move directly to a farm where you can get Starlink or 4g.
I sound like a doomsday prepper, but I’m just an IT guy who saw the writing on the wall years ago. So now I plan complex datacentre upgrades off solar power on a farm where my closest neighbor’s house is about 3km away across the valley. At this point the Australian government can mental, and probably will, and there is not a thing I can do about it, but, conversely, when stupidity comes back to haunt my country, I’ll be insulated. Best part… My retirement plan was sorted before I hit 50.
As someone who lives in Russia, I’d say that all of those are good options! Russian is a challenging language to learn, but really opens one’s eyes to new information and perspectives. You should take care of your health, have some actually productive and useful skills or work, and be reasonably prepared for shortages and fights, in case the situation gets really bad. Developing good relations with family, friends and neighbours will be useful too.
Tough times coming in zone A. I can only offer my perspective. Get right with god. Try to be kind. Try to be humble. Children come first. Do not submit. Start a garden. labor every day.
The entitlement is overwhelming. Many are willing to work but the currency we are compensated in is a function of empire. Good men have their hearts. It is a difficult situation. Perhaps we will get through without nuclear war. Its in gods hands.
Maybe we have it coming. Judgment belongs to god no man. WE shall see. Good men dont run from their comeuppance. If you are righteous in your actions there is no fear. Apprehension yes fear no.
There are humble people. They had no hand in this mess. I suppose they must suffer too but they should not fear. Only spoiled entitled brats fear a bit of suffering.
The main problem as i see it is entitlement. People always seeking a them to blame rather than taking accountability. This human flaw is used against the. Easy to blame. Hard to find solutions. One has to try with strength humbleness and love. Above all realize- if you find hate in your heart you are part of the problem.
There is no port from the coming storm. All a soul can do is their best. You cant do better than your best. There can be nothing worse than the future prepared of the beast for the beast. Thus justice and light is always joyful regardless of the implications of the flesh and things of the world. Perhaps a better time is coming…
You ask: ‘How to personally prepare for the new multipolar order’.
Essentially we need to stop obsessing about material things and our differences with others.That requires self awareness and development of personal spiritual, mental and emotional balance. The recipe for that was stated by Christ Jesus, namely:
Learn to love neighbour (everyone and everything including those who hate and persecute you etc – something many on this forum seem to eschew. In effect we need to learn to love the sinner but hate the sin);
AS yourself (you need to learn to accept and love self – generally a difficult achievement due to the mind control most have experienced their entire lives);
FOR the love of God i.e. ALL that is.
In other words we need to realise we are reincarnating spirit beings having a physical existence. It then follows that we need not worry about acquiring money or assets, or learning Russian/Chinese etc. In the new world coming the ‘poverty, scarcity and want’ indoctrination inculcated in us by our bankster controllers for centuries will dissolve as we adopt a ‘sharing and caring’ community ethos. In effect we will discover that communal cooperation combined with this planet’s resources will provide abundance for all. Hoarding and warfare will then cease their attraction.
When enough human individuals reach this understanding our world will change and there will be no need to fear anyone or anything. In fact a sufficient number (i.e. a critical mass) of individuals have reached this stage of spiritual development on this planet already and accordingly the necessary transformation is already in progress.* The Russian SMO (with its obvious concern for human life) in Ukraine is part of that.
To begin to effect the necessary personal mental, emotional and spiritual changes required, an individual needs to make a conscious effort to understand and reverse his/her subconscious knee-jerk reactions that have inappropriately programmed his/her ego during early childhood and been reinforced by negative societal conditioning by our global controllers. For instance, we need to stop mentally demonising “the other” and to start realising s/he is us.
Bruce Lipton provides useful insights on how and why we are bedevilled by false ideas about self and others: Bruce Lipton The Biology of Belief Full Lecture: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82ShSNuru6c&t=4724s
And: Here’s How to Change Your Reality: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIC3AwJZiuM
* To understand that our world is being genuinely and positively transformed we need to drop our narrow misconceptions about many things. For instance the demonisation of Putin has been mirrored by the globalists’ demonisation of Trump and Xi (and the CCP). All three of those world leaders and their supporters have worked tirelessly (albeit in radically different ways) to eliminate the globalists and to initiate our new world environment. Paradoxically, the physic input of those who wish to improve our world but who denigrate one or another of those leaders or their supporters are working against the global transformation they ostensibly seek.
Creator’s MIND creates the Cosmos and its myriad interacting energies. Our spirits are also created by that MIND energy. Because we are spirit MINDS inhabiting physical bodies composed of myriad interacting energetic vibrations, we are able to influence those energies AND the energetic vibrations of others as well as those composing our material world. Moreover, higher consciousness individuals generate higher frequencies and have much greater ability to influence others and the environment than individuals whose attitudes result in lower frequencies.
Peace and Blessings,
This is a good article. It is certainly more plausible than your “Myths” article and your subsequent, brief apology for it. If you use the star metaphor again, red star/white star/yellow star is more symmetric than red star/white star/twelve star.
You have a good point that many readers expected too quick an ending for all this. A sober look at the situation, even as early as March, however, would suggest not much troop advancement for about a year. The Ukrainian forces will be ground down. Besieged cities will surrender one by one. The Ukrainians cannot advance. The Russians have no need to advance. In March, the Russians were everywhere they wanted to be. They just had to defeat their enemy there.
This slowness–compared to the expectations of some–is on account of Russia’s decision to send in an invasion force of the size it did. It chose the size to suit its ends. Its ends can be deduced from the size it chose. It was not obvious in March that Russia would vacate Kharkiv, Mykolaiv and Odessa, but Russia did. Now, the Ukraine is following suit, which opens the door for Russia to return to surround these cities, unless a peace treaty, however unlikely, happens to be consummated shortly. This vacating was unexpected, but it changes little, in regard to the ultimate outcome. The ultimate outcome–the fall of the Ukraine regime, the loss of its coastline, and the general devastation of the Ukraine–was obvious in February. Russia is allowing for an alternative outcome–a surrender and a peace treaty. There is little reason to expect NATO to want this. The Ukraine’s refusal to retreat out of Donetsk and Lugansk in February was the decisive event. Everything else, apart from the size of Russia’s invasion force and any Russian-speaking territory that it may, for whatever reason, choose not to occupy, is just the consequence.
For NATO to send a few divisions of its own into the Ukraine would be a critical event, and a very dangerous one at that, for all of us. God willing, NATO won’t.
Why would NATO send a few divisions into Ukraine? To get bombed to hell. You speak from a MSM point of view and forget the relevant parts.
Big mouth USA said 5 times, they had no intention of going to war with Russia. Borrel, EU, NATO said so many times that Ukraine must win.
Now it is all about negotiations. There will be no negotiations and USA and the west will be completely humiliated. But even then, your kind will spin it as some sort of victory.
To believe that replacing democrats is some sort of change is absurd. It is all downhill from here. I know that Russia can blow the whole of Europe up, and your aircraft carrier fleet, before you even mobilize, but you know better.
Your sanction war has/will utterly fail, so keep up your stupid leaders bareback stunts as a show of force. God willing, I hope NATO would!
By “critical event,” I did not mean to imply that NATO could win in the Ukraine with only a few divisions and nothing but conventional weapons. Rather, a few divisions would lose, unless escalating to nuclear weaponry, which would be very dangerous for all of us. God willing, NATO won’t escalate like this and, better yet, won’t move divisions in, in the first place.
My kind? What is my kind? Where can I find more?
I don’t think Europe is committing suicide but, rather, forming more repressive societies and governments. Europeans are embracing their status as vassal states to Washington and will willingly endure almost any sort of shortage or cold winters to give some meaning to life that their hedonistic and materialistic styles of life indicate. Fortunately, the center of the Empire (the Washington Deep State) is in decline and beginning to experience a number of cross winds that will decrease the power of the neocon/neoliberal fanatics who seek to dominate and rule every square centimeter of the planet. Realists are beginning emerge out of the woodwork that used to be instant career death within the Deep State but are now growing in influence. Of course, they will continue to genuflect to the notion of “bad Russia” and “good USA” but will, in my view, gradually draw back from the sort of stupid policies generate by “Biden.” We will see a sort-of repeat of the changes Bush II made after the 2006 elections of embracing more realists within the administration until the fanatics emerged again during the Obama years (an amazing story in itself).
Europe will endure and continue to follow orders from Washington. I don’t see it dying only gradually changing when the alternative media becomes more robust and distrust of the ruling elites increases–but this will take years. In the meantime the populations will fee they are being noble by supporting poor “democratic” Ukraine against the barbaric hordes from the East and so on.
I have frequently argued that it should be United States’ economic, military, and diplomatic policy, do destroy the European Union and it’s entirety. The European Union is a pathetic caricature of federalism and separation of powers, both of which were European concepts in their original form. The sooner the monstrosity that is the European Union is destroyed, the better off the world will be.
What concerns me is the fact that this evil empire and its vassals will not accept to see their “way of life” being destroyed by a new model. They will prefer burn the planet instead of losing their privileges.
A joy to read and to savour the humour.
May you be right!… even though there still be so much pain in store for everyone before we get where you point to, that real Global world: of all, by all and for all.
I’m inclined to think that you are right, and that your arguments are sound.
Thank you so much.
Ukraine will lose a lot but the EU is going nowhere, and neither is the US. This is just wishful thinking, for which the author gives no explanation.
What are those serious western sources that speak of 200 000 killed Ukrainian soldiers?
I tripped on this too.
Some weeks ago there were a number of serious reports that the AFU had >50k KIA and >60k “missing”. These numbers did not include wounded (typically 3:1 ratio) or captured (Donbas with 7k and Russia with another 2-3k).
Based on those numbers – Ukraine’s increasingly despreate and expanding conscriptions and the number of captures of rear area personnel and poorly outfitted untrained civilians (some of whom really are cooks and drivers) – 200k casualties (not KIA) seems quite reasonable.
This is additionally supported by the more rapid advance of RF forces and quick liberation of a number of cities, more recent reports of up to 1,000 AFU KIA per day, as well as the sudden backpedaling of western media.
DPR source – Killed + Wounded = 200,000 Casualties
Deputy Minister of Information of the DPR, Daniil Bezsonov, said that the Ukrainian Armed Forces lost a total of more than 50 thousand people killed. At the same time, up to 150,000 servicemen may be wounded, he added. Bezsonov also noted that most of the combat-ready and experienced military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were captured or destroyed, and those who came to replace them were ” extremely demoralized.”
Great article . . . . certainly warms my heart contemplating the possibilities.
Then comes the slap of a cold towel after polarbear4 cautions: “the ghouls are so insane that they may destroy human life.”
The third aim, the denazification . . . . will require all the skills of a bomb disposal expert, and we’ve only just begun.
What was the Nazification of the West if not the takeover and organization of key structures/industries by former Zonderkommando Gyorgy Schvartz (Soros), Klaus Schwab, son of a Nazi General, and born Eugenicist/Nazi Bill Katz? One could throw in many others with blood ties: Merkel, Van der Lyen, Scholz, Stoltenberg and even Trudeau, whose Quebec corporatist putative father’s, and mad mother’s, full histories wait to be revealed.
The denazification will have to take place throughout the West. That will be our job. Though some no-fly-zones provided by the new “Allies” will prove highly helpful.
As the devil himself once admitted to Dr Faustus: “I am that power that wills forever evil but does forever good.”
May this descent into Hell we are currently experiencing globally prove that to be so.
So what is it with this “class” of people, is it nature or is it nurture?
Do they read a lot or are they taught from birth how to asset strip every nation using violence and criminality?
“The denazification will have to take place throughout the West.”
That is a really tall order, given that most of the western (zone A) population are ignorant and servile.
The western “media” has no intention, it seems, of making the public aware of the precarious situation.
In answer to your question: “So what is it with this class of people?” I will hazard an answer.
This class of people consists of two stratum: The psychopaths (by nature), whose number through time varies between 1% and 5% of the population, and beneath them, a much larger group of sociopaths and other morally and ethically compromised persons (by nature and nurture) who enable them in return for a share in power, prestige and wealth.
According to Jordan Peterson, when psychopaths are at the lower percentage they remain beneath the radar and predate in ways that the society can absorb or tolerate. At the higher percentage, which he says, and I agree, we have today, a society becomes utterly dysfuncational beneath the blows from their organized and synergistic depradations and savage excesses of parasitsm and must throw them off through acts of massive violence merely to survive.
I am in a remote part of the planet where an analogy I might draw is the number of mosquitos in my vicinity.
I can deal with one quite readily, I can deal with several with some irritation, if I am swarmed by them at their peak and have no bug jacket I begin to go a little bit insane. Repellent is a little less effective. I have lately been dreaming of getting an insect fogger, a highly toxic, smelly, scatter-gun approach which will probably also kill bees, moths and toxify birds. I almost don’t care.
It’s like being in the final exam for history classes: Where Russia is the Professor and NATO’s the unruly student.
The student is about to get a “Z minus”
re: “Europe’s third attempted suicide” –
Something not mentioned here is the huge demographic changes in Europe over the last generation as it is flooded with millions of refugees from U.S./NATO wars in the ME, Africa, Afghanistan and now Ukraine. The liberal mantra of “cultural diversity” ignores that the cultures now flooding Europe don’t necessarily share the liberal values of the countries they’re in. What this means going forward is that Europe is slowly morphing into something that is distinctly non-European in its world view. As the idiotic sanctions against Russia cripple Europe economically, I see a powder keg blowing up. Starving, freezing people are going to toss “cultural diversity” on the bonfire as they fight for scraps and there is going to be serious internal conflict. Where it will end up, no one can say for sure, but the Europe that emerges from this will not be anything like the past.
”In demographic terms, it must unfortunately be noted that Europe seems set on a path that could lead to its exit from history.”
–Pope Benedict XVI
You mean ‘liberal values’ like butchering the poorest people on earth in their homes in Afghanistan, destroying the most developed country in the ME (Iraq) and starving 500,000 children to death; destroying the economic engine of Africa with a better welfare state than any European state (Libya) etct etc ?????
You’re right, the incomes don’t share these liberal values and left unmolested, raped, robbed, murdered and brutalised, would have stated at home.
Come to think of I don’t share these LIBERAL VALUES either.
Incredible. You totally misunderstand the point of the post. It’s not praising what the ruling class spouts as their liberal values but showing how hypocritical they will prove to be when the situation in Europe deteriorates. Maybe you missed the part where the poster stated that Europe was “flooded with millions of refugees from U.S./NATO wars in the ME, Africa, Afghanistan and now Ukraine”. That’s not blaming the refugees it’s laying the problem squarely at the feet of those responsible for it.
Something weird is going on at RT: pro-Russia, or at least anti-nato, posts get pulled; whilst anti-Russia posts get past the moderators and stay up. Others have mentioned it, now its begun happening to me too. Strange.
I’m afraid that the Age of Empire is far from over. So long as nations around the World hold dollar reserves and US government debt the US war machine will remain as powerful and all-encompassing as ever. China alone holds some $1 trillion in US government debt, and all of this free money (interest rates are negative in real terms) goes to finance the Military-Industrial Complex. In an indirect way, China is funding the US’s proxy war in the Ukraine. Yes, there are initiatives such as the petro-yuan, but the overwhelming majority of World trade is still carried out in dollars and euros (which is the same thing really).
If Global South countries want to get serious about de-dollarization they should start there – invest in each others’ government bonds. The problem with that is that the US has a monopoly on ratings agencies, so the US and it’s vassal-states’ bonds will always get triple-A rankings, whilst most developing nations are considered risky investments at best. It’s a chicken and egg situation: the first countries to take the risk might not be successful, but someone has to take that step for the idea to succeed in the first place.
Another problem is that 98% of countries have Rothschild-owned “Central Banks”, including Russia – which is why the Russian Central Bank opted for utterly disastrous policies after the SMO was launched, such as jacking the interest rate up to 20% when the rouble came under threat. There are traitors averywhere!
Westerners giving these globalist Western oligarchs more power then they really have, as an excuse to do nothing over your declining situation in your own countries in the West, cheap and lame excuses. Also at this point who gives a crap what phoney Western rating agencies say is good to invest in. Remember AAA rating for mortgage backed U.S. securities back in 2007/2008.
Hopefully the war in Taiwan will flare up soon, so that the divorce of China and the West can begin soon. I really mean it, that I want this war to start in the Pacific, it would put a final nail to this disgusting globalist world order, that the world has been suffering for decades. So I hope the Taiwanese president pulls the trigger and declares independence, so that China can finally be forced to leave this disgusting arrangement it has had with the West since Nixon in 1971.
There is no need for any sovereign government to issue bonds to create their money supply.
The creation of money should be removed from private banks and restored to government without incurring debt.
“The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity.”
And then he was assassinated.
“What will Europe lose this time? It will lose the only Empire remaining – the EU.”
We read about a Russian correcting an Italian reporter who believed that the EU is an Empire.
The Russian, immediately corrected the Italian and said, “Not, the EU is not an Empire. The real Empire is the US. It is the dominating force in the world; it is ” A Hegemony.”
I just read that Jordan’s King Hussein is warming to the idea of a Middle East NATO. Out of step a lot?
One more river Jordan is a US vassal who’ll be swept up in the rush to the exit.
The western evildoers now want – as a kind of last measure, since they are out of better options now – drive a wedge between Iran-Venezuela on the one hand and Russia on the other by waving some of their sanctions in return for the two to pump the much needed oil and gas into the market, so that they could isolate Russia, further. Their media is busy doing brainwashing exercises on people inside Iran so that people may believe Russia is a competitor and it’s Russia that’s preventing the average Iranians cut a nice deal with the west. Viewers are shown wealthy western lifestyle through their television sets about Iranian expatriate driving Mercedes Benz or live in beautiful mansions plus swimming pools,… in the US.
The Iranian is not stupid, and knows about Kensington Avenue.
One correction: The EU isn’t an Empire; rather, it’s a colony of the Outlaw US Empire, aka Empire of LIes. Both Putin and Lavrov confirm it as have I in the trio of articles I’ve written on the topic, the first of which is here.
What Russia and its Eurasian allies face are a collection of handmaidens in the service of the one remaining Empire, but even those public faces of the Empire are also handmaidens acting at the behest of a mostly veiled elite. One of the unique qualities shared by all the handmaidens is their utter mediocrity at most anything. That thus must lead us to ask the begged question: Why did the elites choose such weak people? Well, the answer ought to be obvious–the weak-minded are very easy to control and manipulate. And that ought to inform us about the actual abilities of the elites for they too are mediocre; and as proof, I offer their behavior since Russia’s security proposals last December.
Putin and Xi IMO are trying very hard to keep Europeans for dying from the ineptness of those currently in control of their governments. Liberating Europe from Neoliberal Fascism will be difficult yet is the only way to prevent a huge European die-off, which the WEF and its demented allies wish to occur. Come Winter, I expect to see a different European political landscape as the mediocrities get ousted and EU/NATO splinter and cease to be handmaidens, although the overall process will take somewhat longer.
On the Us/ Russian gold sanctions, i cant believe Washington hasnt noticed the boomerang effect on sanctions. I thinking that maybe the gold sanctions were placed to intentionally provoke Russia to retaliate with rare metals ect. sanctions on the west. Such, Washingtons thinking might be that thats the step (or one of the steps) needed for full on war. Like most here i agree that would be a military disaster for the US, no nonetheless it seems possible with all the provications thus far.
Of course Washington is aware of the boomerang effect of the sanctions on Russia.
It serves their purposes: the can push their New Reset towards the New Green Economy while blaming Putin.
Unfortunately for them, fortunately for us, the American People are finally onto that lie.
I really look forward to the writings of Batiushka.
I live in the belly of the beast here in the U.S. and it is evident that some sort of suicidal pact has been made. Our system of government has become insane. It is rotten to the core. No one tells the truth anymore, about anything. We are living in a fantasy of lies. Everything that is civilized is being lost, education, justice, healthcare. All of it is corrupted. Everything is happening so quickly. Some sort of collapse seems inevitable. Idealism has replaced economics. Division has replaced unity. If you live in a country that hasn’t been infected with this system, keep it that way.
Agree with you, All is Insanity to what Govt is doing. They are destroying established institutions as if on purpose.. Most people are Oblivious to this. New World Order will not succeed . Revelation 17-20 . Biden is a figure head .
Well said Greifenberg, Brother B is a joy.
I also look forward to your comments.
I think you were in Germany and near Poland and spoke several times of the Suwalki Gap.
It is on all our radars now.. how do you see it?
Russia should overcome blockade with sea lift ferries, but this NATO news today to increase 3Bs troops to 35,000 and even more in Poland is concerning.. Kaliningrad could handle itself but the madmen could ignite that NATO-Russia war through mission creep alone
Thank you for kind reply. I think NATO is looking to widen its war on Russia using Kaliningrad as a stepping stone. This is a very dangerous strategy. Kaliningrad is of some importance for Russia and is like a dagger pointing at the heart of Central Europe. Kaliningrad is nuclear armed and is equipped with Iskanders among other types of weaponry and is home to the Baltic fleet.
Kaliningrad will have to be resupplied by ship as air and ground transport have been cut off like you said. As long as the shipping option is in place, Russia is in no hurry to resolve this issue. If a ship or two meets and an unfortunate accident, Russia will have to make a decision. Polish and U.S. units are in place around Kaliningrad on the Polish side of the border. In a conventional war Russia should have no problem dealing with the force placed by NATO in the East of Europe.
If Kaliningrad looks like it is about to be lost, Europe will be transformed into a heap of Radioactive waste. Everything escalates from there.
I do not know how to praise this article. An excellent synthesis.
Why has progress been ‘slow’?From Col Cassad today…….
“They say that in the offensive zone in the northern Donbass, the density of Russian troops is about 1 BTG per 5.5 kilometers of the front, which, in terms of the number of personnel, is about 15 times lower than the density required by the classical charter: 4 kilometers per division….(a division is 3 brigades of 3-5 BTG per brigade, ie about 10 – 15 BTGs)
This explains a lot: the lack of spectacular breakthroughs, and problems with the rapid closing of the boilers, and, in general, the accepted tactics of slowly pushing through the front, relying on artillery.
It is necessary to compare the current campaign not with the million-strong fronts of the Great Patriotic War (which at first glance seems natural), but with semi-positional hostilities in Syria, where the front also moved very slowly and where the defense was kept mainly in settlements.”
“Both Communism and Capitalism have failed.”
Not in China – (or Russia).
This is some of the best prose I have ever read on this blog. Beautifully cadenced and well presented. A very satisfying read !
We all know that what’s called “democracy” today is run entirely by elites, not ordinary people — elites who first have to pass muster with gate-keepers controlled by egregiously rich oligarchs and other power-brokers. Contrast it with the true democracy that flourished in Ancient Greece, where ordinary people called all the shots. Greek democrats were smart because they realized a fundamental truth about democracy that has since largely been forgotten: democracy is incompatible with elections. No one votes for unknown ordinary people no different from the joes and janes they see on the street every day. Voters inevitably choose well-known people, which inevitably bring elites to power and offers ways for the rich and powerful to dominate the process (selection of candidates, campaigns, finance, etc.). So the Greeks wisely dumped elections, replaced elected representatives with officials chosen by sortition (to fill the bodies that ran government from day to day), and left big decisions to referendums open to universal participation (elections were used only for offices where special expertise was required, e.g. generals and civil engineers). What we need today is not European Russian or Chinese style oligarchy but a system of sortition that can restore the rule of ordinary people and establish true democracy. If our randomly chosen representatives were aided by a skilled bureaucracy thoroughly subject to democratic control (in hiring, promotion, evaluation, and organization) by bodies also chosen by sortition, then we might for the first time in modern history get governance that is at once democratic and high quality.
That is the best argument on that subject I have seen in nearly 30 years of reading about it. Congratulations. With you permission I will use it, with credits, from time to time.
Los Sellos del Capítulo Sexto del Apocalipsis se abren ante nuestros ojos. He escrito y hablado mucho sobre eso estos últimos dos años. A aquellos “católicos profesionales” que desprecian la profecía y rechazan categóricamente cualquier consideración apocalíptica con reflejos felinos (y pensamiento crítico gatuno), les imploro que hagan un ejercicio: Abran Apocalipsis 6 y escriban una ficción imaginativa que describa un tiempo en el que comienza su contenido. a cumplir:
Paz quitada de la tierra (Sello 2)
Hiperinflación: el valor de un día de trigo requiere el salario de un día completo para comprar (Sello 3)
Muerte generalizada por hambre, peste, violencia (Sello 4)
Martirio generalizado de los Fieles, cuya muerte clama venganza a Dios (Sello 5)
Mini-Día del Juicio Final (La Advertencia: Sello 6). Estén atentos a la llegada de este.
Bueno, su trabajo de “ficción”, si está escrito honestamente, acaba de describir hoy.
Claramente hemos visto, pero, aún así, solo hemos visto el comienzo , la apertura global de los Sellos 2, 3 y 4. (El Sello 1, por otro lado, el jinete sobre el Caballo Blanco, es sostenido por la Tradición Católica para sean positivos –Cristo conquistando almas– y eso lo hemos visto estas últimas décadas en la extensión del Tiempo de la Misericordia). También hemos visto la apertura del Quinto Sello del Martirio en África, Asia y Medio Oriente. Pero este Quinto Sello solo se ha abierto con un chirrido relativamente ligero en Occidente.
I’m sorry I wasted my time to translate this. I found it not worth reading.
Murder not suicide.
Good article offering real hope for humanity – many years down the line however ie after the “tribulations”.
I might disagree on use of the term “suicide”. I don’t see people desperate to end their own lives.
What I see is an insulated elite gang murdering humans in as many ways as they can get away with.
War is one method of course. They love wars. Sanctions are another as Eamonn McKinney reminds us with one example of what could have been hundreds
“The 1990 sanctions against Iraq imposed for the sin of selling their oil outside the allowable OPEC guidelines resulted in the deaths of more than 500,000 Iraqi children. Which, according to the secretary of state Madeline Albright, was “worth it”.
There is also planned famine and of course the biggest one in recent times as the inimitable Jim Kunstler points out –
“Havoc is coming And at the same time, it finally becomes too obvious to ignore the fact that many millions are dying or becoming disabled from the effects of the mRNA vaccines foisted on the public, especially in the USA and Europe.”
Aren’t they calling it de-population? Another term might be satanism.
“The ruling Party of Chaos is doing absolutely everything to disorder our lives. Everything it touches breaks, wilts, withers, splinters, rots, poisons, and infects the body politic, driving it deeper into derangement. It doesn’t even pretend to make sense because that would require making distinctions between what is true and what’s not true”.
Humanity will survive but I just don’t think many of us alive now will live to see it. I also think God knows what he is doing and that Russia is receiving divine help.
Noticed how the more shit the west has thrown at Russia, the more they have wakened up to the challenge?
Seems like we have to have our very backs to the wall to bring out the best in us.
But I do not see suicidal tendencies among the human race as a factor in the terrible times ahead which we face now. No – it’s Game On!
I like Batiyushka’s opinion pieces.
Soooo ..if NATO declares Russia an enemy at Madrid( got to be a total vote by members???)…
Polish authorities expect NATO summit to recognize Russia as an enemy – Head of National Security Bureau, Pavel Solokh.
Russia can cut off the gas oil coal etc???? And the USA Macron von der Leyen’s plan for EU to buy gas at a “capped price” will be idiotically pointless??
Limiting Russian oil revenues would only be possible if enough countries participated in the scheme, German Economy Minister Robert Habeck said on Monday ahead of a meeting of EU energy ministers in Luxembourg.
“The price caps proposed by the US for the purchase [of Russian oil] are only a good idea if enough countries participate in this. Let’s see how they will move forward,” Habeck told reporters, as cited by RIA Novosti.
The prospect of establishing a threshold above which Russian oil would not be bought was revealed on Sunday, when reports, citing government sources, emerged that the heads of the Group of Seven (G7) leading Western economies were holding “constructive” talks on the matter.
Gas shortage might put European states in a position where “even with money, you will not be able to get electricity,” Montenegro warns
Interruptions to Russian gas supplies and a mass switch to electricity would lead to “a general energy collapse” in Europe, the prime minister of Montenegro, Dritan Abazovic, claimed on Monday.
Partisan activities” are emerging in territories controlled by Russia, the Ukrainian military intelligence chief has said
Russia should brace for “attacks and sabotage operations” within its territory, Ukrainian military intelligence head Kirill Budanov told the Financial Times over the weekend
A UK western pres had claims Ukr had used a HIMARS to attack and kill many Russia military at Izium
“Russia acknowledged the attack and admitted it had been carried out with HIMARS, but said it had actually hit a hospital and killed two civilians…”but does not mention spokesperson for Russia.
.photos..video…but Z could be painted on vehicles afterwards?????
Claims of Ukr attacking Snake Island again….
Russia did NOT target residential building in Kiev, damage was done while it was trying to hit ammunition factory – Pentagon.
Would the Russians be so stupid to waste several expensive missiles just to kill 16 people?
Capitalism is not over….
Currently the West is not Capitalist… it’s Fascist… Fascism v2.0 where the Global Elites control the nation state political systems.
Trump was (is) a true capitalist, and nationalist… closer to Putin than anyone in DC or the EU (except perhaps Orban in Hungary).
The American People are capitalist and nationalist, and I think most Western Euros are too. It took massive cheating in ’18 and ’20 for the American UniParty and DeepState to control the polity, but, IMHO, people are waking up and hopefully we’ll get them guillotines up and running for the ’22 and ’24 elections.
If not, watch for an American Civil War, 2.0. That is the beauty of a federalist system as opposed to the parliamentary messes in the EU and British Commonwealth.
Batiushka, An excellent discussion of what is going on, but I am bothered by one thing:
“There are just a few occupied vassals in Asia, like Israel, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea, …”
I hardly think Israel is an occupied vassal, certainly not by the USSA. Possibly by their own deep state psychopaths. The USSA suffers from an infestation of Israeli firster politicians at both the state and federal level. A disgusting number of individual states have passed unconstitutional laws against boycotting Israel. It seems objecting to the slaughter of Palestinians is “anti-Semitic” and not to be tolerated.
And Australia suffers from an Isreali lobbying effort that is totally out of all proportion to the number of Jewish people in Autralia. Search on “Mark Liebler UNZ review” to read all about it.
If one follows the trail of influence ot always seems to lead back to the same poisonous source. Why is the last impoerial government so infested with dual citizens who are rabidly Russiaphobic?
Kudos for this attempt to put recent and future changes to our present world into perspective. Yes, I think we will watch massive changes, the breakdown of western alliances, the forming of new ones and the switching of loyalties of countries desiring sovereignty. But make no mistake, NATO and the “West“ are by no means finished yet. They still have the ability create havoc on a massive scale and they will do so. The results won’t be pretty. If we can avoid nuclear war and the almost total extinction of human life on this planet – we can count ourselves lucky indeed. By the way, the mindset of the Russian and Chinese elites and their idea of how society should function and how “normal” lives of their citizens should look — it is not something I fancy for myself. Yes, western leaders are mainly imbeciles and puppets, but they are only the lesser of two evils.
“In 1991 the Red Star (USSR) Empire collapsed. Today the White Star (USSA) Empire, with its Twelve-Star EU (USSE) vassal Empire in tow, is collapsing…”
At some point in the early ’90’s I read a comment stating that if we thought the collapse of the USSR was a big bang heard around the world, just wait for the second shoe to drop.
I would say this is the fourth attempt at suicide. Napoleon’s ludicrous march of some 650,000 European troops into oblivion was the first. In the history books, no mention is made of just why Napoleon behaved so foolishly but it does make you think that the same dark forces behind the other three attempts were also behind the first. In all of the official stories of the Napoleonic wars rarely is any mention made of the banksters.
After all, it made no sense whatsoever for Napoleon to declare war on Russia unless the purpose was to depopulate the continent of white Europeans, one of the dark forces’ favorite past times. Suppose we accept they also provoked the French revolution. In that case, it isn’t an enormous stretch of the imagination that they had a significant role in promoting a psychopath into the position of the supreme leader of the French. People like Talleyrand, a freemason and Illuminati survived through the revolutionary wars even serving under Louis Philippe 1. We have to wonder by whom were these types of people really controlled.
Napoleon attacked Russia for two wrong reasons: his girlfriend was polish(Poland did not exist yet) and she wanted him to save the Dutchy of Warwaw and give her a Country not to the russians(russophobia was already strong).
And the biggest reason: Napoleon declared a pan european embargo on the UK but Russia was the only country not to agree and enforce it.
The 600k strong army was a kind of ‘guerre d’Espagne big brigade internationale’, only 200k French the rest from 20 + countries + colonies and some azov and jihadists of the 1812 years let’s say.
They took Moscow but nobody was there…they waited some time and then Moscow burned and finaly general winter won the war.
It was the end for him(except the 100 days failed return in 1815 and waterloo debacle).
Russian and allies(almost everybody else), took Paris over and the regime collapse.
What will soon happen hopefully for the EU NATO soon.
I believe that following the liberation of the Donbass and former Novorossiya the SMO of the Russian Federation must forge on into Ukraine to liberate the country from the Nazi’s and protect the ethnic Russian population living there. We can’t let central and western Ukraine become a black hole where NATO can still penetrate and operate. I’m pretty certain the Russian MoD is planning for exactly that scenario
With the Ruble now trading at 53 Rubles to the U.S dollar, its the U.S dollar thats on suicide watch.
One can only speculate what will happen to the U.S once it really starts to collapse from its current high on the dollar index, a meltdown of the economy leading to even more money printing.
Much higher fuel prices, much higher food prices, man those riot police are really going to be working overtime across all 50 states.
And ditto for the vassals in Europe, 2023 and beyond will be the year of discontent. Putins recent speech nailed it, in saying the elites will pay a price for their monsterous errors.
If this war develops into WW3 then I will lay the blame at the feet of the American voter and their apathy at what the criminals calling themselves the “representatives of the free world” are doing in their name.
The European…well that is Germany and they are too busy apologizing for the past to be of any use.
These morons will watch cars going around in circles as they melt due to a nuke…or complain about the heat from a blast.
Voting is a waste of time and energy in the US and EU.
As Josef Stalin noted ” It is he who counts the votes, who decides the winner.
It is far to easy to hack the electronic voting machines these days, otherwise Merkel, Macron and Biden would never have been “elected”.
i still have hope, that our corrupted, antirussian “politicians” will be forced to go on negotiations to Moscow; on a plane to Moscow, on a bare foot back. I am worried that our region will stay stucked in the falling West for another decade or more.
Good article. All civilizations self implode for a variety of reasons that always includes leaders of low intelligence and gross incompetence. There are reasons the quality of individual as well always declines in turn and improves in other rising civilizations, but may not fit a Christian perspective. Regardless the external effects are apparent, the whole woke, Green, LBGT movement being an obvious example. The movers and shakers behind the scenes may have their machinations, but those families too encounter declining quality of heirs.
Agree the likely outcomes described, what we don’t know is how much pain and disharmony will occur along the way, most likely considerable. The collective West has gone mad, their time in the sun is coming to an end. However just like these cycles now apply to the West in time both Russia and China will fall prey to the same events.
Fatal mistake run by Green zealots and Euro foreign policy elite:
“ExxonMobil expects all new cars sold two decades from now to be electric vehicles. But the U.S. supermajor also believes that people will “pay a high price” in this rush to renewables without providing the energy the society currently needs, Exxon’s chief executive Darren Woods told CNBC’s David Faber in an interview last week. Exxon joins many other oil producers who say that governments and policymakers need to balance the drive to lower carbon emissions with the people’s current need for affordable energy. The recent underinvestment in traditional energy sources is a blow to energy supplies, which leads to high prices and record-high gasoline prices, Exxon’s CEO told CNBC. That’s the latest warning from the oil industry that policymakers should look at the short-term energy needs while planning for a low-carbon future.
Sure, it’s not unheard of for a large oil corporation to warn against a rushed transition. Still, the current global energy crisis with record-high gasoline prices vindicates all those executives and officials from Middle East’s oil-producing countries who have been warning for over a year that reduced investment in oil and gas would come back to bite consumers and governments.
After the first COVID lockdowns, many industry analysts predicted that this was the end of the global oil demand growth and that we would never again see oil demand as high as it was in 2019. But people did return to travel, and demand is on track to exceed pre-COVID levels next year, analysts say. Even the International Energy Agency (IEA), which said last year that no investment in new supply should be made if the world wants to reach net-zero by 2050, predicted in its latest monthly report that global demand would average a record 101.6 million barrels per day (bpd) and exceed pre-COVID levels in 2023. Moreover, the market turmoil due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine could even lead to supply struggling to keep pace with demand next year, as sanctions on Russia would curtail more supply when they officially enter into force at the end of this year. ”
Another enjoyable piece by Batiushka.
And wisely he gave no indication of a date when the inevitable day of reckoning will be:
“Now, it would be foolish to predict with exactitude when that, which is the culmination of Europe’s third attempted suicide, will be. It could all be over in early July. Alternatively it could drag on for years.”
Knowing the day of death is coming is one thing but being prepared is another.
While “analysts” like myself and others can try to guesstimate and predict based on current and historic events and data, the symptoms of systemic decay are everywhere. The Final Act, the death of the EU and the remaining Western civilised industrial societies is imminent. How imminent ?
I’m looking at the debt market that has the greatest potential to bring down the whole Western financial edifice.
Meaning catastrophic rising bond yields in the US, ECB, BofE, and BoJ. And destruction, respectively, of the US $, the €, The £, and the ¥ .
By my reckoning this will occur before the year 2022 is out. Why?
Because these currencies are based on nothing. And their time is up by any measure. Bond yields. Central bank interventions to no avail. Rising inflation. All fiat currencies throughout history last an average of 35 years. All have failed. The Federal Reserve issued USD is over 109 years old and measured against the only true money, gold, has lost 99% of it’s purchasing power or “value.”
Everything exists in modern civilisation because of:
You don’t have to be Einstein to know these two critical elements underpinning the modern world’s standard of living are being both destroyed and depleted simultaneously. Credit can only exist because of energy.
Take energy away and there is no credit because credit is a claim on future energy performing work in a real economy to enable debt to be paid back. Creating debt to pay for the cost of money, or interest, in the current system of growth without restraint comes at a cost. Now there is nothing any person or government or central bank in the West can do to stop credit from seizing. Or stop their currencies from collapsing to zero. Their death was written in stone since their birth.
Russia and China are the best placed to weather the coming cataclysm. Why?
Preparedness over decades. Stockpiling energy. Food. Finished goods. A new monetary system. To name just four elements in their respective leader’s plans for a new way to organise and govern their complex civilised societies.
This article goes over some of these truisms.
There’s thousands of such articles, more or less read, most unheeded.
As Julien Benda noted in his book, “The Treason of The Intellectuals,” thanks to all those men who seek their joy in an art or a science or a metaphysical speculation rather than material advantages, “humanity did evil for two thousand years but honoured good. This contradiction was an honour to the human species, and formed the rift whereby civilisation slipped into the world.”
Even if my prediction is out by a few months, “what has been set in motion cannot be undone.” Putin’s Russia is creating a new rift whereby civilisation will again slip into the world, and my expectation is for good to prevail over evil, as it is written.
If the october revolution was orchestrated by London, then why invade the country with 14 nations? Why Churchill hate so much his own creation?
The Russian Revolution was the will of the russian people, against a corrupt regime, a corrupt church and the bourgeoise.
Btw, the russian Revolution was against the homophobie that cover all actual russian sites.
I wish russia end winning this war, because if Russia lose the world will be a worst place, not because the anexation of Ukraine is a good cause
“because if Russia lose the world will be a worst place”
Mr. Putin posed the following rhetorical question:
“Who would want to live in a world without Russia?”
Europe has already lost. There is no way of saving Europe. An alliance between the European Union and the Eurasian Union, as proposed by Putin 10 years ago, was Europe’s last chance of survival. Together, we could have competed with the big guys. The numerous small European countries could have defended their sovereignty against the hegemonic tendencies of the big powers.
That scenario was unacceptable to the US. A sovereign Europe is a threat to US hegemony. That’s why the US drove a wedge between Russia and the EU in Ukraine.
Of all the assumed objective of the Ukraine war, that was the only achievable US objective.
Churchill was a high-ranking psychopath. His only allegiance is to other psychopaths. And since psychopaths recognize only themseves, his only allegiance was to himself as a pschchopath. Quite the conundrum for we ‘normies’.
“Why has progress been ‘slow’?”
The arm chair generals who aske questions like this, have no sense of reality whatsoever for what real warfare is, or what it means in practise. They have no sense that, the Ukro military, under NATO instruction, has fortified itself purposely in residential areas & established their base of operations in heavily populated areas, & in civilian properties. NATO (US/UK primarily) thought they could induce Russia to carry out massive destruction on the Donbass frontlines which would turn the populace against them. Of course, Russia knew better, this is Russia’s historic territory, her land, her people, & she knows how to liberate it, she has done it so many times before. But the village idiots who think they have profound things to say about this war, amongst which is how the Russian army has performed under expectation – just have no clue whatsoever. They also miss another crucial point, in addition to liberating these areas in a painstakingly meticulous manner, the Russian strategy is also to keep this conflict contained to Ukraine for as long as possible. Russia buys itself time this way. Had Russia done what the idiot arm chair commandos argued for, & captured all of Ukraine in say – 5 days – what would have happened next? We would potentially have been looking at a direct engagement with NATO. This way, liberating territory in a mile by mile progression, winning over the locals (many of whom are sympathetic anyway, & this will become more apparent in the not too distant future), Russia is ensuring that the conflict with NATO does not escalate, at least not at the moment, plus these territories are undergoing a very thorough de-Nazification. The author of this piece is correct that the real denazification has not yet begun, but in those territories Russia has liberated, the manner in which this has been achieved, has ensured that denazification has already taken place in those territories. For now, all goes well, the pace in the last couple of weeks has increased somewhat, the Ukro army is being wiped off the map & progress will actually speed up on its own accord. Once the Donbass in its entirety has been totally secured, the cities of Harkov & Odessa may be next on the agenda – here we will witness a whole new round of hysteria on the part of the Nazi west.
““Why has progress been ‘slow’?””
Framing conditions “output” as illustrated by the Roadrunner cartoons.
A more useful framing would be “Where has progress been “slow ?” since such framing encourages the “publications” of the “perceptions” of others – an iteration of the process of bridging doubt by belief to attain self-affirmation.
Another fabulous piece of analysis, thanks again to The Saker for creating this great site where we the people of the world can get a more solid footing of what the F is really going on.
“But if aggressive NATO/EU sabre-rattling continues, all is possible.”
Indeed, nations evaluate the adversary in a confrontation; they seize him up as they must. This is the biggest worry, actually. This factor grows bigger in an actual confrontation. Then, depending on how it sounds and looks, all can be possible. The present situation is unique, but history is a good guide. On saber-rattling, I think it’s fair to say that Blinken indicated yesterday that if Russia does not conquer all of Ukraine, it means it has lost strategically, and that it happened. As we say in Spanish, “es pudiendo” (it’s about being able to). He only wanted to say that Russia is not winning but was not able to do that well. To call victors and losers before it’s over or too early is more than saber-rattling; it’s “overboard.” You know, the main problem is not bad feelings, or “hate.” It’s incompetence, that’s the big problem. No surprise, because es pudiendo.
I love it!!! Especially Fidel’s comment, is there a source for this please?
