Will historians one day call hegemon USA’s sanctions and proxy hot war on Russia its Waterloo, a strategic no-turning around blunder?
Will they explain that overstepping beyond a point of no return led to its demise as a dominant world power?
Will they stress how hegemon USA’s worst enemy was itself?
Along with state-sponsored 9/11 — the mother of all false flags to that time — will the Obama/Biden regime’s 2014 Maidan coup in Kiev be viewed as the beginning of what led to its fall from grace on the world stage, the last straw after many other US successful and failed coup attempts?
Will they view US hot and cold wars on Russia and other invented enemies as signs of impotence, not strength?
Will they call demonizing all things Russia — its leadership, culture and traditions — lunatic actions against a nation able to respond in kind defensively?
Against the world’s most resource-rich nation, its unmatched asset wealth spread over a nation with the world’s largest land mass by far — stretching from central Europe to Asia/Pacific waters.
Against a nation with world’s largest natural gas reserves.
Combined with Iran’s, both nations have an estimated near-42% of known reserves worldwide.
Against one of the world’s most oil-rich nations.
Against a nation rich in many of the world’s most valued commodities.
Besides oil and gas, they include coal, iron ore, timber, gold, silver, diamonds, titanium, copper, rare earths, aluminum, uranium, copper, palladium, platinum, nickel, and many others — worth an estimated $75 trillion.
Against a nation with super-weapons that exceed the best in the West — developed at a small fraction of the cost, especially US ones.
Western and other nations rely on Russian commodities.
Blocking their imports is self-destructive.
Claims by Germany and other Western regimes about being able to find alternate sources of supply are harebrained.
With attribution to George and Ira Gershwin, “the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble” throughout the West — if imports of invaluable Russian resources are abandoned.
On Thursday, Sergey Lavrov laid blame for crisis in Ukraine — and central Europe overall — squarely where it belongs, saying:
US-dominated NATO bears full responsibility for hostile to peace policies it pursued throughout most of its history.
Its ruling regimes “pumped Ukraine with weapons” since 2014, “creat(ing) (an anti-Russia) military infrastructure” in the country.
This diabolical policy “threatened Russia’s security.”
It’s “a gross violation of decisions taken in the OSCE and in the context of Russia-NATO relations.”
It stipulates that no alliance member state may “increase (its) own security at the expense of the security of others.”
Hegemon USA and its key NATO vassals operate by their own rules exclusively — the rule of law be damned.
History shows the unsustainability of operating this way.
It shows that what can’t go on forever, won’t.
It shows that believing otherwise is self-destructive.
It shows that multi-world polarity is replacing hegemon USA’s unipolar moment — the demise of dollar hegemony along with it, the key source of its strength.
Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine is proceeding on course.
The battle for the Donetsk city of Mariupol is nearly won.
On Thursday, DPR Decree No.108 — signed by its leader Denis Pushilin — said the following:
“I hereby order to set up a local administration of the Donetsk People’s Republic, the Mariupol city administration.”
It’s the largest Sea of Azov port city, a center for Donbass metallurgy.
According to the Donetsk News Agency:
“At present, the mopping up operation against the Nazis is nearing completion in Mariupol.”
“Various sources reported that the DPR currently controls more than 90 percent of the city’s territory.”
On Thursday, Zelensky regime official Alexey Arestovich admitted the following:
Russia “practically destroyed our military industry and in many ways is finishing it off.”
“And in many ways they are finishing off the civilian one.”
As for the US-dominated West, its sanctions war is inflicting more harm on their own nations and people than on largely self-sufficient Russia.
Rarely have I agreed with Trump on anything.
Rare exceptions proved the rule.
Here’s one, Trump saying:
The US, the world’s richest nation, is becoming a “third world country.”
He omitted explaining it’s because of the greatest wealth disparity between rich and poor in the US since the robber baron age over a century ago.
I agree with him saying that “(y)ou go to a store, you don’t have bread” — or other staples used by most households.
Indeed, the Biden regime bears full responsibility for a supply chain breakdown.
Shortages, delivery delays, and empty food market store shelves reflect it.
Soaring inflation exacerbated a hunger crisis for increasing numbers of Americans.
The same goes for an energy crisis nationwide.
Instead of things stabilizing ahead of improving, they’re worsening.
Is lost normality how things will be ahead longterm?
Will more millions of households throughout the US — and West — become impoverished?
The nation I grew up in long ago no longer exists.
Its war on humanity at home and abroad should terrify everyone.
Benefits ordinary kids like myself enjoyed no longer exist.
Dystopian harshness, growing poverty, and largely eroded freedoms replaced them.
So did the flu/covid mother of all state-sponsored scams with mass-extermination and elimination of what remains of a free and open society planned.
George Carlin notably explained the fantasy of “the American dream — because you have to be asleep to believe it.”
