Yesterday I received an email from a Ukrainian friend of mine. By “Ukrainian” I mean that his culture and self-identity is Ukrainian, he loves his heritage, speaks the language and loves his country. In fact, he is what I would call a “real Ukrainian” as opposed to the Ukronazis in power in Kiev. We correspond regularly and exchange opinions on what is taking place. Here is an excerpt of what I wrote to him yesterday:
“I am also heartbroken with the evolution of the war to liberate the Ukraine from NATO: while I have no doubts about the outcome, I am horrified at the thought of what this does to the civilian population. My sadness is even made deeper by the realization that to a large degree the people of the Ukraine did it to themselves. Russia tried REALLY HARD to not have a war, then she tried REALLY HARD to save the civilians and the civilian infrastructure. But the people under Nazi occupation believed all the propaganda coming out of the regime in Kiev and the West and now there will be hell to pay. For 6 months these naive people thought the Ukraine was winning because they could not even fathom that Russia was only using about 10% of her forces and trying really hard to save as many Ukrainians. But no, they were celebrating the murder of Dugina, the attack on the Crimean Bridge, the attacks on the ZNPP and now they are going to pay a horrible price for these delusions and, frankly, lack of decency/morality.
As Douglas MacGregor said “the Russians are about to bring a sledge-hammer” to vaporize the NATO forces in the Ukraine.
We did not want that.
It was imposed on us.
What else can I say?
The Nazis will be crushed, but the costs of doing so will be needlessly high.
Millions of refugees will be added to the millions who already fled.
I feel utterly disgusted, sad and angry about this outcome
As one Rock song I know (“Gates of Babylon” by Rainbow – see below) says: “sleep with the devil, and then you must pay, sleep with the devil and the devil will take you away“.
I am sad to say that I believe that the people of the Ukraine did “sleep with the devil” (the West) and now comes the inevitable.
After sending my email, I kept thinking about utter insanity of the Ukrainian actions. An outside observer could be forgiven for thinking that the Ukrainian people have some kind of death wish, and if maybe not most people, then at least the leaders of the Ukraine. And then it hit me.
The Ukraine is doing what is known in the USA as “suicide by cop” which Wikipedia defines as “Suicide by cop or suicide by police is a suicide method in which a suicidal individual deliberately behaves in a threatening manner, with intent to provoke a lethal response from a public safety or law enforcement officer“.
This is what the FBI’s Law Enforcement Bulletin has to say about such a situation: (emphasis added)
Suicide by cop situations are more intense than other suicide calls. All parties are armed, or the victim appears to be armed. The individual is active, rather than passive, and aggressive toward police or others. Despite its unique features, SBC fits the template of suicidal behavior as a planned outcome to an unfolding psychological process. Prevention and intervention are possible at the same points as in suicide by other means. Theoretically, suicides are preventable; however, realistically they may not be avoidable because of the nature of the plan or the point where first responders encounter the suicidal individual. SBC often is unpreventable. This must be considered in the aftermath regarding the officers who were coerced to be the unwilling means.
And, just to clarify, I do NOT consider that Russia is some kind of “cop” who has to enforce the law on anybody else. Not at all. But I do see a moral parallel between the cop who does not want to kill the suicidal person with a gun, but might have no choice, and the fact that Russia simply had no other choice other than to take action when the Donbass was threatened with imminent invasion and Russia was threatened by Ukronazi plans to acquire a nuclear weapon.
Sometimes the only way to disarm a person is to use your own gun. That is exactly what happened here.
What makes this all even worse is that the dark forces in the West which created the Ukraine in the first place joined with the Nazis and Neocons (the two ugly twins who fight each other but look so much alike!) to push the Ukrainian people into a war which they never had any chance to win. The Ukrainian military was defeated by mid-March but that was not enough for the Hegemony, so they ordered waves of mobilizations and sent in THOUSANDS of “advisors” and “volunteers”. By mid-summer what had been a Ukronazi military was basically replaced by a de facto NATO force which is now also being “demilitarized”.
The AngloZionist Empire promised the Ukrainian people peace, prosperity and all the riches of the Western propaganda (which is quite different from the West’s reality) and the ignorant people of the Ukraine (brainwashed first by Soviet, then Western propaganda) bought it all, “hook, line and sinker”. This is similar to two vicious adults promising a 5 year old some super tasty candy and telling that 5 year old that “all he has to do” in exchange for the candy was to throw a few stones at a sleeping bear and “don’t worry, if the bear wakes up we will protect you!“.
Now that bear is awake, and mighty angry at that: the 5 year old is getting eviscerated while the vicious adults who promised him “a land flowing with milk and honey” are watching (from what they – mistakenly – believe is safe distance) and laughing at it all.
This is truly demonic evil.
There are still those out there who cannot, or don’t want, to understand what is taking place.
So here I will share a video with you which has been circulating on the Internet which shows you exactly what this all looks like in reality.
See for yourself: (no need for translation other than “ВСУ” meaning “armed forces of the Ukraine”).
What this video shows are two attempts by the Ukrainian forces to attack: first LDNR forces and then the Wagner PMCs. What happens next is predictable: first, you see a small-arms exchange of fire, then the Russians use mortars. Russian very precise artillery strikes come next. Then full-scale MLRS attacks followed by even more strikes by a pair of Su-25 and one single Su-34. According to Russian sources, in this (very small) attack, all (most?) Ukrainians were killed while the Russians did not suffer any casualties. Notice that the Ukrainian soldiers, while definitely brave, have absolutely no support. Notice also the tiny size of the attacking force: the Ukrainians used to attack with several “brigades” (well, kind of), now they are down to squad/platoon level engagements!
And that kind of needless butchery happens every day, day after day after day after day.
My Ukrainian friend also asked me why Russia does not take out “Ze” and his gang.
I think that this is the crux of the problem: I believe that it should be the Ukrainian people themselves who should overthrow “Ze”, not the Russians. Just as it was infantile to believe that the EU would turn the Ukraine into a new Germany overnight, it is equally infantile to believe that “Putin will come and restore order”. Putin is the President of Russia, not the Ukraine, and it is not his job to rescue the Ukraine from the pit it fell into.
There are also three practical reasons for not decapitating the Kiev regime (yet):
- The regime has no agency anyway, all which such a decapitating strike would achieve is cutting off an already quite dead head.
- The Hegemony could quickly replace the old gang with a new one.
- “Ze” & Co. are so fantastically incompetent that Russia could not hope to have a weaker, dumber and more incompetent adversary anyway.
It is, however, Putin’s job to protect Russia and the people of Russia. By pushing the Ukrainians towards more and more dangerous provocations the Neocons were fully aware that they were pushing the Ukrainians into a type of “suicide by bear” folly.
The sad truth is that Russia was given no other option than to do that which the Ukrainian people could not (or would not) do: denazify the Ukraine. And since the Ukraine could not be denazified, it had to be disarmed.
[Sidebar: oh and please don’t give me “but the Ukrainians could not do anything to resist” argument. Resistance is always possible, even under the harshest and most evil regimes. And when that resistance appears to be futile, then it remains a question of honor, of personal choice, of a moral obligation to resist as best one can. Resistance to evil is what defines our humanity. And if one really cannot, then, at the very least, every person has the option to “live not by lies“! Again, resistance, however humble and small, is always possible, and the people of the Donbass have proven it!]
This latest Neocon-originated bloodbath is already well into the hundreds of thousands of people needlessly killed, maimed or displaced. This winter it will only get worse.
And what do you think the Ukronazis will do to somehow mitigate this catastrophe?
They want to dismantle the statue to the founder of the city of Odessa! Yes, like the other degenerate freaks in Eastern Europe, the Ukronazis are still “fighting statues” and, by extension, their own historical past. How lame…
This would all be quite hilarious if this was not also so horrible and if millions did not have to suffer from the actions of the shaitans ruling the West!
The FBI is quite correct. Suicide by cop is mostly unpreventable.
Was it right for Russia to try so hard to avoid a full-scale war? Yes.
Was it right for Russia to try to minimize the damage to the civilians and the Ukraine’s infrastructure? Yes again, absolutely!
Think about it: if Russia had attacked the Ukraine à la “shock and awe” from Day 1 and turned Kiev, Kharkov or Lvov into “Ukrainian Fallujahs” then it would have been much more credible to blame Russia for the massive “collateral damage” such an attack would inevitably entail.
Does anybody blame the cop for a “suicide by cop” death?
Of course not!
Yes, that policy of trying to spare the Ukraine did cost Russia a lot, not only in political terms but also in lost Russian lives.
But, at least, we tried.
Maybe that is the biggest difference between Russians and Ukrainians?
The week-end is coming up and I normally share a few musical videos with you. Today I am going to post only one: the video of Rainbow I mentioned above. I would just note that according to the guitarist, Richie Blackmore, his solo on “Gates of Babylon” is his best solo ever. I very much agree. In terms of structure, the beginning of the song is based on a double harmonic major scale/mode, but then the solo switches to a sequence of chords/harmonies which are much more reminiscent of baroque music, specifically J.S. Bach (something which Richie Blackmore had already explored with Deep Purple, but which he truly mastered with this superb song). The singer is the late Ronnie James Dio, the best voice in all of Rock music in my humble opinion. Enjoy!
The funny part is that the Ukraine SSR was the “Germany” of the USSR. They were highly industrialized, and had a higher standard living than did the Russian SSR part of the USSR. They blew it all over the last three decades.To now become the “sick man” of Europe. While Russia under Putin has recovered and strengthened herself over the last 2 decades.
Yes, because Ukraine was infested with parasitic oligarchs.
Including westerner like the Bidens and their ilk.
I have seen what sounded to me like credible commentary, that the bleeding and weakening of Ukraine via home=grown and imported corruption was a factor in the growth gangs such as the Azov Battalion. People who didn’t understand why their country, and they, aren’t doing better get frustrated and look for scapegoats and form into groups to exact some kind of revenge, or punish the wrong people.
Those who can emigrate to Europe and those who cannot end up getting further brainwashed and, actually, victimized by the whole increasingly negative situation.
Then the Americans of course were active in Ukraine ever since 1991 to stir up problems and turn Ukraine into a Kochherd—boiling pot—of Russia hatred. That also fuels the Azov mania.
“Ukraine was the “Germany” of the USSR”
You must have learned history in the USA!
Make an effort to lean the real history of Ukraine. It is a fake, unfunctional product of the communist’s system created mainly from the Poles and a small number of Hungarians and Romanians (today’s Western Ukraine, taken as a war reparation for the contribution of these countries in Hitler’s armadas during WW2). Then the communist added the Russia’s territories (today’s Eastern, Central and Southern Ukraine) and created a dysfunctional entity that was doomed to fail
Forgot to add that 90% of Ukraine’s GDP was coming from the Eastern, Central and Southern Ukraine (rare minerals, coals, gas, wheat and tourism). The Western Ukraine had never contributed anything, except providing the nationalist and oligarchs!
Actually that comes from Soviet economic history. Something I’m guessing you aren’t familiar with. The Ukrainian SSR was the most industrialized republic in the USSR. But the Ukrainians mismanagement and cutting off their sources of Russian natural resources destroyed everything they had. While Russia under Putin rebuild and expanded their economy. And while most of that industrial development was in the mostly Russian speaking regions of the Ukrainian SSR it was still as I said in the Ukrainian SSR.
Once again, your feelings have nothing to do with the facts, Mr. USA #1. Read my two posts again, if you want to lean something about Ukraine’s history, it’s there, free of charge. If not, continue living in your illusions, I could not care less.
Also, educate yourself who and with what purpose created the Soviet Union. Here is a short synopsis, just for you, gain for free: it was meant to destroy the Russians as a God loving, the Bible following, Christian nation. Do me a favor and convey to your USA #1 buddies that the Russians are not nostalgic about the Soviet Union, and that Putin does not want the recreate it!
None of the things you are saying have anything to do with my post. I don’t know if you just enjoy being argumentative or aren’t able to understand English very well. But either way,please stay off my posts in the future.
Ukraine was not the Germany of the URSS, it had civil aviation industry that was created by Russians and supported by the URSS, because URSS wanted to spread industry through the territory.
Antonov was a Russian from Moscow.
Then it had other heavy industries in the Russian part of current Ukraine.
Your comment seems to imply that Ukraine existed as autonomous entity in the URSS, and by it’s own merits was industrial.
So it’s a very misleading comment
There is a famous poster shown here on the Saker more than once that was from 1919-1920 that pointed to Donbass and said “the industrial heart of Russia” which meant then the USSR. The shipyards of the Ukrainian south built the majority of Russian and then Soviet naval ships. Facts are facts whether we like them or not. The Soviets didn’t think of the Ukrainian SSR as separate. It was just a part of the common USSR. So the Ukraine with it’s huge coal and iron resources was picked to be a main area for heavy industry during the 5 year plans. The German Ruhr was not considered separate from Germany. And yet it was the main site of German heavy industry. The Ukraine being the site of so much industry of that period was not controversial back then.And it shouldn’t be with us now.
Yes, the Ukraine was the USSR’s “Germany”. It will be Russia’s in the future. This is SUCH a great article BTW. I am much in awe.
I will link to this in this article.https://thesaker.is/the-ukraine-is-committing-suicide-by-cop/
And if it wasn’t for Putin, Russia would be the same as Ukraine now. Putin saved Russia from the oligarchs.
Yes, it is absolutely sad how they are wasting the life of thousands of people. But what puzzles me is why, after months of carnage, soldiers are still fighting: I expected (and hoped) since the beginning some collapse like the Afghan army, but surprisingly we are not yet there. I wonder what is now the percentage of foreign “reinforcements”.
On the other hand, at some point Russia will be forced to deal with Ukie government: at this stage, what seemed possible at the beginning, that is leaving a small land-locked “mini-Banderastan”, it is impossible as no peace solution is in sight, and it would be used by NATO for similar purposes (bio labs, long range weapons). But I do not believe in a spontaneous revolution by population, and Russia seems no interested in finding someone friendly to place in Kiev. What do you think about?
soldiers are still fighting
First the Ukronazi propaganda told them that they are winning. Reality only hit once they get to the trenches.
Second, Ukrainian soldiers are courageous (many Russians have noticed that).
Third, those who refuse to fight get shot by the Nazi deathsquads.
Fourth, most soldiers do not fight “for country and king” but to help their fellow soldiers. The fact that they are sent to a one way suicide mission is awful, but for many not a reason to abandon your comrades.
Fifth, a lot of them do run, especially the Nazis and the Ukronazi officers. The fact that this video shows Ukrainian/NATO soldiers going into a suicide attack does not mean that this is typical or happens everywhere.
So I think that there is a mix of things here.
I think Pepe well understands what I am talking about here. I suspect few others do and his Davos comment finds much acceptance to me. So I post it here along with a post on Larry C. Johnson commentary. Globalism is hugely misunderstood as a player in the Great Game and it is vital to change this understanding.
Mr. Escobar has published a a succinct treatment of how Russia is defeating the West and also note his inclusion of a short mention of Davos machinations in Europe. The obvious Great Game consideration is, however, less clearly stated that the Empire of Bullshit is fighting a two front war with itself. Globalists are dismantling NATO countries including the USA while Washington, seemingly obliviously, proceeds to send ever diminishing supplies of war materials to Ukraine. If Ukraine even wins this war (virtually impossible) the Western oligarchs can only look forward to looting the country as the Ukrainian varieties were gainfully doing in the decades before this war. Now the West is locked in an existential war with its own Davos oligarchs that are in turn looting the West and Russia has at least been forced to defend itself against the reduced threat of NATO and a collapsed EU. The US and other Davos captured countries cannot engage in war when the internal one is being run against them and is deindustrializing their societies. I wonder why Pepe did not state this more clearly. To be sure Putin and Xi know the score.
Great points with the first one first:propaganda.
If people are lied to and deceived, they have no way of knowing how to act morally or even in their own best interest. The truth does set one free, but to do so one must consistently put truth as number one, above any personal affiliations, biases, fears, desires, likes and dislikes.
This is a tragedy, replayed over and over again. For all our technological advances, we humans remain (for the vast majority) dumb, stupid and as self-destructive as ever.
That’s true and I guess that, since front lines in the last months are mostly frozen, they can sell that these sacrifices are actually stopping Russia (of course they ignore that Russia may be not so interested in advancing). Maybe at some point in the future they will reach a breaking point, this happened in all wars and this is what I am waiting for. But you are right, this may take much more time.
This is so accurate as always – Russia seems to have finally accepted the fact that was obvious from Day 1 – The rest of ukraine and it’s population is totally and unconditionally supportive of the ukronazis and their policies – Trying to see if those people believe that they are brothers with Russia and Russians was like thinking that Santa Claus is a real person – It’s a good thing that the blinkers are off so that a real and final war can be started to remove this Nazi / Neocon cancer permanently from the face of this planet – That’s what all of us from the global south was expecting Russia to do from the start but they got sentimental
Well, it is suicide by cop. The USA is the “policeman of the world”. The USA is providing the means with which the Ukrainians are suiciding themselves. The trenches of Ukraine are the modern-day gas chambers that avoid the negative connotations that are eliminated verses when actual gas is utilized to promote death. Gas chambers would actually cost less and come with less pain, suffering and cost. When you can just print money, cost is no object.
It’s murder, not suicide. The US instigated the killing Ukrainians in 2014, if not before. Those massacred in Odessa and the Donbass did not “suicide”. (Moderator: Removed attack on fellow poster)
UkroNazi goal is to create a anti-Russia with Donbass and NovoRussia included or excluded, but certainly without any sign of Russianness in their country even if it would cost them half of their country ripped away from.
I’ve seen the video if the attacks. It’s not shock and awe. It’s disgust and horror. These soldiers are brave. Each of them faces odds I wish I never ever meet.
The tactic of attacking with so small groups does not make any sense to me. They simply are suicidal. I noticed that the artillery shells falls exactly in the trench where the soldiers are. The last one group, busy retreating, was burned alive by napalm. I can’t figure out one survivor. I’m also surprised by two thing. The use of a civilian car on the very front line is surprising. The speed at which the armoured carrier left the field is also telling me how precious they became. The only MBT on the video was destroyed or that type is very sturdy. 5 to 10 men with one armoured carrier and a car are supported from far away by one MBT. They’re all dead now.
Killing these men is a disgusting job. It has to be done and is disgusting. The worst part of it is the fact that they die for nothing. Each of them would have been useful or necessary for reconstruction of the country. They are fighting. They have value.
I feel sad and disgust.
It’s not shock and awe. It’s disgust and horror.
“Shock and awe” is exactly that: “disgusting horror”.
The US propaganda concealed that, but it was always about inflicting disgusting horror on the other side.
If they have a chance they would gladly slaughter Russian people in Donetsk or Lugansk. Imagine what would happen if Russia didn’t interfere in February and a planned large scale invasion of Donbass went ahead.
Horrors that would occur would be hard to comprehend. Everyone of these ‘warriors’ had 8 years time to leave this twilight zone aka Ukraine and not be a part of nazi punishment squads. They made a choice.
As I said many times, this generation of people in Ukraine is lost, fully zombified and filled with insane hatred towards Russia. The sad part is, they are (most of them) Russians too.
As for being brave on battlefields, large portion of ‘brave’ is due to substances they are using that subdue emotions, feelings. Plenty of info, videos about it on the net.
In conclusion, black hole, twilight zone aka Ukraine must cease to exist. As everyone is aware, Ukraine is just a proxy, 1 battlefiled in Globalist war on Russia. But probably the most important one, based on commitment of Washington and muppets in EU.
If they have a chance they would gladly slaughter Russian people in Donetsk or Lugansk. Imagine what would happen if Russia didn’t interfere in February and a planned large scale invasion of Donbass went ahead.
Sadly, you are absolutely correct.
But the fact that the only “cure for Nazis” is death is not less horrible and sad.
But yes, you are right.
What i find funny is that this new generation of Western politicians and population consider Ukraine to be a western country, as if Russia is invading the west!
Western politicians/populations do not consider UKR to be a Western country. That is PR/Marketing.Politicians/elites (I would say elites, politicians just follow orders) are using UKR for their own nefarious purposes.
They know very well that they are Slavs and therefore “untermenchen” for them. What it is happening, it is an Anglo wet dream, 2 Slavic people/countries killing each other.
Agreed. but I think it it even worse.
West European do not consider East Europeans as “real” Europeans.
And North Europeans mostly feel contempt towards South Europeans.
Yup, there is still *plenty* of well (or not so well) concealed racism all over Europe…
“…there is still *plenty* of well (or not so well) concealed racism all over Europe…”
Unfortunately it is all over the world. Many Asians are racist towards others with a different ethnicity, many blacks hate whites and vice versa, Greeks hate Turks, and on it goes.
Today many New Europeans (who were historically either on Hitler’s side or part of the Hapsburg) consider themselves belonging to the “West”, again.
Armenians are crying out loud they are Europeans. Why the obsession, the shame?
If you go to Bosnia, many Serbs do not consider themselves to be part of Europe. Europe is something outside to them. They are right, and nothing to be ashamed of, they are from the Balkans, with a very different culture from “Europe”.
Many western politicians and politically opinionated citizens consider Ukraine’s border with Russia as “Western” borders with Europe.
What an absolutely waste of human life. I find it disgraceful and very unfitting of a civilized race. The powers that be (demons the lot of them) impoverish a nation and then offer the citizens 2-4 thousands freshly minted fiat dollars a month to go die. This is the reason why hell exists.
Ukrainian soldiers (and mercs) charged into a WWI battle field trench system only to find out they are in a modern war. Did these soldiers not think that the Russian artillery doesn’t sight their artillery in on the trench’s they left. It’s disgraceful and the people that sent them to their deaths should face justice for their arrogant actions that wasted peoples lives.
These people might have families, mothers, fathers, children, brothers, sisters and now they are left to rot in some stinking field far away from home. Why? I’m sorry to rant but this is just wrong in my opinion.
“What an absolutely waste of human life. …”
This is what ‘Liberal Democracy’ is all about: the splitting of society into a cautery of special interest groups. Whose interests are to incite, provoke, or inflame peace and promote chaos and disharmony for personal gain by the people who exploit them (i.e. politicians). “Nazi” is a good term for reference. or Khazarian.
Here’s a video showing the disordered thought of a US agency member, who thinks nazi based ideology is ok, being grilled by a US Senator,
Hard to miss as neon lights @ 9:30.
On this site, sometimes lacking restraint, a video of Duma Chairman Piotr Toltstoi on BFM TV. He does not try to argue much. He seems to me to have a cold anger. And it is rather there to inform the French what awaits them. Really incredible. Mr. Tolstoi gives a certain amount of information as what will happen next.
– Around 6mn, he says that the Russians are going to invite the westerners at the polish border to see how the ukrainians feel in Russia.
– Around 10:15, he says that in 3 or 5 years the current leaders of the EU will be in the dustbin of history, that one time it ended in Paris and the other time in Berlin.
– He suggests that the war will last another 2 or 3 years and that Europe will be cold.
– At about 10mn and 45s Guillaume Ancel, captain with the French Foreign Legion during the operation turquoise in Rwanda in 1994, enters the scene. Here is the link to the compilation of the crimes of genocide during this operation: http://mucyoreport.rw/index.php/report/
BFM dares to bring out such a scumbag to teach a lesson. Incredible.
Unfortunately ordinary Ukrainians have to pay very dearly for this Neonazi revival folly, planned and promoted by the west. Following their independence from the CCCP, of course the most logical course of action was deeper/ more strategic cooperation with Russia and by now they would have had one of Europe’s best countries, given the very strong industrial, agricultural, scientific …foundation Ukraine inherited from the Soviets. But today they must beg for 120 mm shells from NATO. Imbecility has many levels from mild to severe and frankly these Bandera lovers suffer from the severest form. For sure the Russians are fully aware of the fact that they are dealing with bad cases of mental disorder first of the Ukronazis and then of the world’s number 1 mental case i.e. the US posing as the superman.
Your email exchange is close to Putin’s exchange with War Mom’s that took place today, which I hope you’ll provide the English transcript of this very important meeting that reveals a great deal. I many respects, it’s the best commentary reply that could be made to your post.
As I wrote at MoA on Wednesday, the Nazis need to be decapitated, not Zelensky as they hold the POWER not him or his minions. The Nazis are those with the direct line to their Neocon brothers, which includes Biden, and the war will continue until the Ukrainian part is destroyed. I see no other possible policy. And given what Putin said to the moms today, IMO that’s also what he thinks.
It’s not complete yet, but here’s the English version so far:
“Meeting with mothers of military personnel – participants in the special military operation”
Als ehemaliger Offizier, kann ich die Waffenwirkung konventioneller Waffen durchaus einschätzen.
Insbesondere da ich an Sprengstoffen ausgebildet wurde und dann selber ausgebildet habe. Für mich ist es absolut unverständlich, wie sich Menschen für den Krieg begeistern können. Ich empfehle jeden Politiker an einer Lehrvorführung von Waffenwirkungen teilzunehmen, Dabei sollten diese Herrschaften in einen Graben unmittelbar an der Grenze des Sicherheitsbereiches positioniert werden. Das denke ich, wäre hilfreich für ihre
Entscheidungen über Krieg und Frieden.
Es sind zu viele Menschen durch die Eitelkeiten von Politikern gestorben!
Apparently Mdme Z is saying Ukrainan pop is happy to stick current situation out for three years….so as there already us a memorial for heavenly hundred . one wonders how big need a memorial be for say half a million-minimum?- that will die from lack of warmth food medical supplies and treatment lack of employment huge inflation etc in the next months? Is this a new kind of genocide along with filtration of Russian speakers and also such being deliberately sent to front lines for extermination even by their leaders if they do not fight?
30 years ago, every major Ukrainian cities was targeted for destruction by NATO nuclear bombs. So much for Westerners love for Ukrainians.
Not to worry! Ukraine will be rebuilt by Burisma under the capable direction of Hunter “Beelzebub” Biden, funded by FTX.
Plus, Hunter Biden Artworks, painting by numbers, only $100k a pop.
In between the crack-pipe and hookers how he finds the time to launder POTUS’ s private wealth account is remarkable. What’s more remarkable though is Joe’s faith in his son’s ability and discretion.
Is he dead?
No, but he’s not alive either!
Hi, I just read that the Kiev regime is drafting all russophones men to go on the front. One notch further than «human shield ».
I can’t believe though that Russian is still doing business with U.S, be it uranium, fatty oil or metals.
It is not easy to fight evil without falling in its game.
I wander why the 85% is not organizing another U.N as well as other international entities, like the WorldHeathOrganization, the Atomic agency, and so on.
AND banning IMF + declaring CIA and its branches as terrorist agencies.
Can anyone get me the url of the Ukranazi attack video? I only saw the video in bits and pieces here and there on the net and I want to save the original 12 minutes version to my hard drive.
I got it from a Telegram channel (don’t remember which one, sorry)
Try Ostashko Vazhnoe.
It is also all over the Runet
Thanks! Also found it at
I think a month or two’s stay at a Theranos Wellness Centre could cure the Anglo-Neo-Zio-NaziCons of their poisonous mindsets.
Take Jake Sullivan, National Security Advisor to Biden, prior to that Deputy to Obama, majors- International Studies & Political Science. His wife Maggie Goodlander, former senior staffer for Lieberman & McCain. That’s 5 out of 6 War Criminals right there, maybe 6, add Nuland & Blinken, that makes 8. I’d say there’s more than a preponderance of evidence of the Amish Mafia at work here, licking both pots with CIA, Mossad, Al Nusrah, Bio-labs, Gunpowder, Treason and the plot thickens.
Goebbels would be proud of useful idiot US stooge Annalena Baerbock’s speech in the German Parliament today/yesterday. I did hear lots of heckling though as she pleaded for German workers to take it just that bit further up the shitter for the young democracy being bloodied by the Russian monster.
Saker’s “suicide by cop” (or Bear) scenario is quite plausible. (Thanks!) I want to go a little deeper, and explore Why… (Those who believe only in the material world will probably want to stop reading here.)
One of my early readings was a science-fiction novel by Andre (Alice Mary) Norton, Star Rangers, also known as The Last Planet (1961). A key concept in the novel was that a more-competent telepath would always ‘win’ over a less-competent telepath – the latter would soon believe whatever the former wanted him/her to believe. (Ms Norton was one of the few SF authors who would delve into the real-world consequences of telepathy/empathy.)
In the novel, a ‘dictator’ held sway over a subservient population by subtle mind control techniques. Control various sub-leaders as necessary, keep things going the way you wanted, and remain in the shadows. (Sound familiar?) In the novel, his hand was forced by the arrival on-planet of another telepath…
This segues back into the “suicide by cop” (or Bear) scenario through the ‘non-human’ way the conflict is being managed. Most Ukrainians do not want it. Most Russians do not want it. Even most of the West do not want it. And, nevertheless, there it is.
This is why, in previous comments, I have urged “going for the head of the snake, not the tail.” It is possible that we are just dealing with a self-assembling cabal of psychopaths/sociopaths. It is also just possible that the psychopaths/sociopaths were not self-assembled. Look in the ‘shadows’…
Thanks for that recommendation!
I love Science-Fiction and I will read this one for sure (I like telepathy as a topic too!)
Thank you in turn. The one caveat which I would give on that novel is that I read it as a teenager, looong ago. It may or may not hold up to present-day ‘sophistication’…
Since you love SF and like telepathy-topics, I would also highly-recommend the Lensman Series by E. E. “Doc” Smith. It was a runner-up for the 1966 Hugo award (SF’s version of an Oscar award) for “Best All-Time Series.” (It lost to the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov.)
I suggest starting with the first (by publication date) novel, “Gray Lensman”, and see if you like it. The whole series is built around humans being gradually introduced into psychic skills, particularly telepathy and telepathy-blocking, in order to have a chance against already-existing, psychically-mature species.
Curiously, the Lensman Series has never been made into a movie, while the series-concept has been ‘lifted’ to create several modern SF movie and television franchises. I might suggest that the original series hit a little-too-close to the mark, which loops us back into my above comment…
Ukrainians committing suicide by cop en masse is as a good analogy. Another is people who’ve had suicide belts strapped to them that can’t be taken off or defused without setting them off: the Americans have strapped just such suicide belts on the Ukrainians leaving the Russians no choice but to protect themselves and kill the wearers, however innocent (or not). The SBC analogy has the advantage of reminding us that the Ukrainians have agency and are responsible for their fate. The suicide belt analogy has the advantage of reminding us that the Ukrainians are just the West’s pawns in a larger confrontation between the US (with Europe) and China/Russia.
So, how does it end? Do China/Russia force the US to a new detente? A true settlement won’t happen until the US is forced to accept a non-hegemonic multipolar world in which the US is one among the rest. What would such a settlement look like? To work, it must get the US to cease and desist from acting to subvert, destroy, and decimate whatever it can’t control. Can the US ever be induced to stand down? It must happen for this to end (the alternative is that the US restores its hegemony). But I can’t see the US ever committing to genuinely getting along with the rest of world in the same ways China, Russia, Iran, Brazil, South Africa, get along with one another. But it would be nice!
” Can the US ever be induced to stand down?”
The problem as I see it is that it’s not the US per se, it is the parasitical class that seized control of it decades ago. Destroy the US (if it won’s stand down) and these AZ parasites will seamlessly move on to a new host.
It is the parasite that must be destroyed.
Andrei… congrats on a brilliant analogy and article!
If you have time and want to grasp the extraordinary manner in which Ukraine is being misrepresented in NZ, then this interview basically says it all.
Sean Plunkett (interviewer) set up this new media platform (The Platform) early this year as a truther-type entity that supposedly would expose the dreadful misinformation that our MSM spoon-feeds us Downunder.
The first 5 minutes would tell anyone with half a brain that this is farcically incorrect, and indeed some of his work is infinitely more dangerous than the MSM itself when it is dressed up as challenging the status quo narratives.
Professor Robert Patman is a Professor of International Relations and an Inaugural Sesquicentennial Distinguished Chair (2019) at the University of Otago. Also a key adviser to the NZ Govt. Here is this rabid lunatic’s LinkedIn profile…
PS… Please, try not to choke on your coffee or scotch whilst you listen to this outrageous dribble.
Apologies Mods… I neglected to include the link to the interview…
If this is what people are being exposed to all over the world, no wonder they think Ukraine is worth dumping billions of dollars into. Truthfully, this dribble was so misrepresenting the truth, itI couldn’t watch it all. I just skimmed it.
When Russia succeeds in their SMO, what are they going to attribute Putin’s win to: luck, bad weather, strategic retreat by NATO spun as their win somehow, we wanted to avoid WWIII so we retreated? The whole world should have woken up at the destruction of the NS1/2. The physical act of its destruction is on the scale of destroying the twin towers in the US. Yet, an investigation was done and no details were released. I find that absolutely reprehensible that media cares not to expose the truth.
We are living in a dystopian world right now, that everyone seems to be okay with. The ignorance of people just astonishes me.
I have thought about this scenario a lot over the last 9 months, and this article and the comments below it shows the same crystalisation process is happening with other people. Different conclusions will be reached, of course, with my own being that there is never much of a choice and some things are inevitable.
To explain; My understanding is that the Ukrainian people elected Zelensky on a peace platform, and that he may even have been somewhat sincere in his commitment to dialogue with the Donbass. I saw video where Azov commanders explained his actual situation in the combat zone, that is, he was to do as he was told and there would be no rapprochement with the republican rebels of the East.
Again, like in the UK or the USA, there is the illusion of commitment to a particular course, when really, the underlying direction in this case is preset by, for example, the Biden interest in Burisma holdings, and the Oligarchical sponsorship of Zelensky’s career.
In the same way that in Nazi Germany,. one could be a communist or a Nazi, but one couldn’t be neutral, in the Ukraine of the last several years, similar pressures applied. I have watched interviews with young adults from Mariupol immediately after the liberation this year, and they said they were powerless, unless they made the decision to escape and join the rebels. If that is a choice, it is not an easy one. I like to think that in their position I would have joined the rebels, but I also know what it is to live in fear of those who have power over you. Also, in my case I had no ‘hostages to fortune’ to use Bacon’s famous phrase. If some vicious regime has power over your family, especially your children, your choices may amount to nothing more than condemning your family to torture and death, or going along to get along. A good example would be Gonzalo Lira, who is walking the walk, but made sure to get his wife and kids out of the way before he made his stand. I think that was a wise, humane and just course. And brave as hell.
I think the choices for Russia are narrowing, and the Zelensky regime’s are almost gone. Most peaceful options are off the table. Is that really the choice the Ukranians made when they elected the comedian?
May I take this opportunity, before the real punishment of Ukraine begins, to remind everyone of Dimitri Peskov’s sometimes criticised words, ‘It is tragic’.
In conclusion, I think ‘War and Peace,’ makes the point very well’ That the tides of history are sometimes too strong to swim against, and our path is often set not by what we want to do, but by what we must.
This is what many non-Russian commentators do not understand about the SMO – they believe, apparently sincerely, that the fact that Russia did not wipe Ukraine off the map in 10 days is a sign of Russia’s weakness. Aside from saving civilian lives & infrastructure, where Putin stated clearly that the VSU had been advised by the US/UK explicitly to use the civilian population as a shield as a matter of strategy – Russia has also been managing escalation with the west. This is absolutely crucial & it is curious how few (professionals) get this, or are blind to it. I have said to numerous people since the SMO began, to try to imagine what would happen had say Russia taken control of Ukraine in a few weeks & installed its own friendly government (assuming this could be done, it probably could) – how the west would react? The so-called “collective west” would have been overwhelmed by propaganda that it absolutely must respond, & we have no way of knowing what they would have gone on to do. Something stupid for sure. It is not relevant here what capabilities leading countries in the west have, we know the US has a nuclear arsenal, that is enough, to know this, to take the risk of escalation deadly seriously. By going it slow & methodical, Russia has managed to maintain the threat of escalation to a minimum, the west has blown of steam & it is quite evident now that they have run out of energy (literally & figuratively) to keep this going for much longer. Russia has managed its confrontation with the west, or rather the west’s confrontation with Russia, with great skill. I have questions about why more was not done to secure Donetsk city, the perimeter & range of enemy artillery, I understand the heavy VSU fortifications & their embedded status among civilians, but it is not altogether clear to me why as a matter of priority the Harkov front was say, more important than pushing the VSU away from Donetsk. I don’t know what the answer to that is, maybe it was a mistake, maybe, as some have suggested, elements of the local command were bribed into making purposefully poor decisions – I don’t know, so I can’t say. But in general, the way the SMO has been conducted makes perfect sense to me. And then you have the population of Ukraine & their level of responsibility for their own destruction. They have had 8 years through the daily bombardment of Donetsk to demonstrate their opposition to what the Nazi regime has been doing & to demonstrate solidarity. Then there are Ukrainian soldiers, going to the front into a certain death – would it not be better to turn those guns on the Kiev regime? If you are going to die, than why not at least sacrifice yourself in an honourable endeavour? But no, many have gone like willing lambs to the slaughter to fight on behalf of the west against their ethnic kin. I have no sympathy for them at all. There are some people who talk about Slavic brothers killing each other – & that is precisely the point, the Ukronazi ideology & its core is a rejection of the Slavic identity & kinship with the Russian world, it is an express intent to murder the Slavic people & destroy the Russian world. There are no brothers fighting brothers here, any more than there were when Russia was fighting terrorist jihadists in Chechnya, these were people committed to the destruction of their own culture, which fortunately, people like Kadyrov were able to see through. The same is true here.
Christmas coming up soon used to be the Roman pagan holiday of Sol Invictus, the invincible sun god.
This Christmas the Sol Invictus, invincible god emperor, reigning over NATO’s cult Pantheon, will be reminded of Napoleon and Louis XIV, both sun-kings.
Lady Marie Antoinette Zelinskaya said Ukrainians would willingly freeze – “let them eat snow”?
And we know the rest of that story!
The Azov crowd use a dark sun symbol. Now Kiev tries banning the Orthodox Church – going back to Roman paganism?
Jesus directly confronted the Sun God Tiberius’s son-in-law Pontius Pilate’ Pantheon.
The first monotheist, Ekhanaton (around 1100BCE), who very likely was Moses. Aton directly challenged Amun, the Egyptian Pantheon.
Today One Humanity must come before any NATO Pantheon, especially as Multipolarity replaces the Imperial Rules-Based-Order.
The February 2014 essay linked here
is very informative and useful. It is also precociously prescient.
The historiography of Ukraine given there subverts Batiushka’s recent reference to Greek Catholics
“The Ukrainians who live on the Polish border (Galicians) even invented a new religion so that they would not be Catholics like the Poles (or Orthodox like the Russians). It is called ‘Greek Catholicism’. A weirder and more artificial mixture than that you will not find.”
The February 2024 essay puts Greek Catholics back to a papal move in the 16th Century, with Jesuits involved, unsurprisingly. This sounds accurate to my ears.
Jesuits : Vatican :: CIA : The USA
The core evil of the Vatican is the claim to plenary authority both civil and ecclesial (secular and spiritual, urbi et orbi). CIA (controlling core of MICIMATT) make effectively the same claim. I am unaware of any Orthodox bishop or patriarch who has made that claim. That said, much good and many saintly men and women have thrived in the culture of The Latin Church, despite appalling claims not a few by popes and curias.
I propose that the tumult of nations we observe and experience today attends the ending of that claim to plenary civil and ecclesial authority, authority on earth and in heaven both, by one person / institution. It is an evil claim, and evil goes not out gracefully. But out it goes because it is not true.
Dismiss that claim and 1054 can be overruled, driven right past and abrogated, which is the right thing to do.
You don’t want to tell us where you learned Theology, Medicine, Military Arts, Law, and Pedagogy?
Okay, then at least tell us where and what you learned theology and military arts (sic)?
Andrei, allow me to draw the bigger picture: “suicide by debt” is the Damoclès sword over the head of the EU leader, the bedrock of all other considerations. If the EU leaders do not follow, à la lettre, the Judeo-Zionist banksters orders, he/she will lose their job, their parties will lose the next elections, their public credits will not be renewed, their currency will be attacked, their countries will be destabilized in dangerous unrests. So, they prefer, the EU leaders, to stick to the “suicide by cop” stand in the hope that something miraculous will occur on the Russian side: an assassination or a coup at the Kremlin. Meanwhile, they keep their job by spending people´s money and resources in order to save appearances.
This sounds credible. But Russia doesn’t seem to be the cop here.
Recent attacks on its airbases show that the west is actively escalating, while Russia is not hitting NATO assets, not even by “accident”.
A real cop would certainly react differently were his car to be attacked by some maniac.
