On Saturday, noted military analyst, Andrei Martyanov, explained reality about how things are progressing for Russia against the empire of lies, its NATO vassals and Ukrainian proxies, saying the following:
The Pentagon forgot what “real war is” all about since embarrassed and beaten by North Vietnamese forces a half century ago.
At this time in Ukraine, hegemon USA’s only advantage is that its C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) hasn’t been struck by Russian forces so far.
If things shifted from proxy to direct East/West confrontation, hegemon USA’s C4ISR would be greatly “disrupted, and (it) would lose (much) of its space-based assets,” Martyanov stressed.
As Sergey Lavrov explained, US-dominated NATO’s proxy war on Russia with expendable Ukrainian troops is part hegemon USA’s aim to cancel the Russian Federation.
Martyanov explained that what’s going on is “catastroph(ic)” for Ukraine militarily and economically.
The only way that conflict can be prolonged is by throwing more weapons at Ukraine’s degraded military.
At the same time, this strategy is changing nothing on the ground.
Russian forces continue advancing steadily. The outcome of its SMO was clear before launched.
If US/Western long-range weapons are supplied to Kiev and are used against Russian cities and town, Martyanov stressed the following:
“(W)e may have some very serious escalation by Russia, and some of it will be very nasty for the US.”
The empire of lies “has many assets and bases around the world.”
They’re all “within range of Russia’s stand-off weapons, and (its forces will) retaliate directly against both NATO members who delivered weapons…and most US military bases will be under a direct threat of retaliation.”
How Iran retaliated strongly in response to the Trump regime’s assassination of General Qasem Soleimani showed the vulnerability of US forces wherever deployed.
If Western-supplied weapons are used against Russian territory, its response “will be much more devastating, and it may go without prior warning to the US,” Martyanov explained, adding:
The “Pentagon will not out-think Russia’s General Staff no matter” what strategy it employs.
If US/NATO escalation continues to perpetuate proxy war on Russia, the war-making alliance will “discredit” itself more than already.
Smashing Ukraine’s military to a hollow shell, deNazifying Kiev and achieving Russia’s other SMO aims will amount to “Afghanistan 2.0” for the empire of lies and its NATO vassals.
That’s where things are heading in the coming weeks.
(T)he cards are dealt (and) Russia knows the game,” Martyanov explained.
Its super-weapons exceed the best in the West.
Moscow will do whatever it takes to protect its sovereignty, territory and people.
Vladimir Putin wanted peace and stability along Russia’s borders.
Proxy war and other dirty tricks by the empire of lies left him no other option than to launch an SMO against Nazified Ukraine in defense of the Motherland.
The Biden regime. along with its Obama/Biden and Trump predecessors, bear full responsibility for creating and supporting a Nazified monster in central Europe along Russia’s border.
Neutralizing its menace is what Russia’s SMO is all about — self-defense as permitted by the UN Charter and other international law.
When its objectives are achieved, Moscow’s SMO will end triumphantly.
US-dominated NATO will have sustained another major body blow.
The longer their regimes prolong conflict, the more devastated the result will be for Ukraine and its long-suffering people under virtual Nazi occupation.
Eliminating this festering sore in Europe’s heartland is crucial to the restoration of peace and stability on the continent.
A Final Comment
On Saturday, Russia’s Defense Ministry announced an important triumph over Ukrainian Nazified forces in Donetsk, saying:
“As a result of joint actions of the people’s militia units of the Donetsk People’s Republic and Russian armed forces, the city of Krasny Liman (in the DPR) was completely liberated from” the scourge of Nazified occupation.
On Thursday, Kiev official, Alexey Arestovich, publicly admitted the impending loss.
At the same time, Ukraine’s so-called foreign minister Kuleba called reality on the ground in Donbass “extremely bad” for regime forces and their US paymaster.
