A personal note and a request:
On Moscow’s SMO in Ukraine, hegemon USA, its NATO vassals and Kiev proxies can do little more than shout and pout while watching superior Russian forces obliterate cannon fodder Kiev troops while destroying Western-supplied weapons, munitions and equipment.
While fighting continues for perhaps weeks longer, the outcome of Russia’s SMO was never in doubt before launched.
Mission accomplished will be part of Russia’s historical record along with its triumph over Nazi Germany’s Wehrmacht in WW II.
And there’s nothing US-dominated NATO can do about it — short of preemptively launching WW III to doom us all if things turn out this way.
A request to Vladmir Putin, Sergey Lavrov and other Russian officials:
With all due respect, please stop referring to hegemon USA and its Western vassal states as “partners.”
The same goes for calling their officials “colleagues.”
They and their nations are mortal enemies of Russia, its leadership, diplomats and people.
For decades, they plotted regime change — including by possible nuclear war.
They want Russia partitioned for easier control, its resources looted and people exploited as serfs.
Partners and colleagues don’t treat their counterparts this way.
Throughout the post-WW II period, the US operated exclusively by its own rules — in flagrant breach of international law and its own Constitution.
What happened earlier led to US/Western sanctions war and proxy hot war on Russia now — with the worst of diabolical aims in mind.
So please Vladimir and Sergey et al, stop calling US/Western regimes “partners.”
And stop calling their leaders and other officials “colleagues.”
Call them what they are — monsters pursuing the worst of high crimes of war and against humanity in service to the rogue states they represent.
That said, according to head of Russia’s Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological Protection Troops, General Igor Kirillov:
Hegemon USA may stage a false flag attack on Ukraine’s Zaporozhye nuclear power plant or another nuclear facility in the country with intent to cause the “deaths of tens of thousands of Ukrainian citizens and cause an environmental and humanitarian catastrophe” — falsely blamed on Russia.
One or more alternate provocations may be staged — involving use of “chemical, biological, or tactical nuclear weapons” to falsely blame Russia for what happens.
UAVs may be used to spray chemical and/or biological toxins on targeted areas with intent to produce mass casualties.
Put nothing past the US monster class in pursuit of its diabolical aims.
With Russia effectively smashing US/NATO Ukrainian proxy forces, something as ruthless as one or more of the above scenarios may be the next shoe — or multiple shoes — to drop.
For years, hundreds — maybe thousands — of US, UK and other NATO forces have been training and directing Ukrainian troops.
On Saturday, Russia’s Investigative Committee said it’s looking into reports about UK special forces in Ukraine — “experts in organizing mass protests, assassinations of political figures as well as preparing terrorist attacks.”
Their US counterparts are likely there with them.
If they show up in conflict areas with Ukrainian forces, Russia should consider them legitimate targets for elimination.
Separately according to deputy commander of Russia’s Central Military District, General Rustam Minnekaev:
Since Phase 2 of Russia’s SMO began this week, one of its objectives is “to establish complete control over Donbass and southern Ukraine.”
Things are heading steadily toward achieving this aim.
Separately on Saturday, analyst Larry Johnson noted the following:
“Instead of statesmanship and diplomacy, the US, Canada and Europe are acting like spoiled children angry at not getting what they want out of Russia.”
“Rather than accept the reality that Russia is better positioned than any of the so-called First World nations to operate a self-supporting economy that can produce food and technology, the west persists in its delusion that it is pushing Russia to the brink of collapse.”
Delusions and illusions are self-defeating.
While US and other nations are declining because of their arrogance and unwillingness to change, Russia is holding its own in the face of their sanctions and proxy hot war.
When the dust of today’s turmoil settles ahead one day, Russia, China and other nations free from foreign control will be rising in prominence in contrast to hegemon USA’s decline and fall like all other empires in world history.
Subservient Western vassal states will go down in similar fashion.
If nuclear war erupts in the interim, all bets are off.
