There never was any doubt about the ability of Russian forces to slay Ukraine’s made-in-the-USA Nazi-infested monster — a festering sore in Europe’s heartland.
Things are proceeding as Russia’s Defense Ministry planned them.
For hegemon USA, its Ukraine project — comprised of unparalleled sanctions and proxy hot war on Russia — is an unmitigated disaster for Europe.
By allying with the empire of lies, its ruling regimes are wrecking their economies, harming their people and eliminating what little remains of greatly eroded freedoms.
The made-in-the-USA project follows the infamous Paul Wolfowitz doctrine, stating the following after Soviet Russia dissolved in December 1991:
“Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere, that poses a threat (sic) on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union.”
“This is a dominant consideration underlying the new regional defense strategy and requires that we endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power.”
The above was a virtual declaration of forever wars by hot and/or other means against nations free from hegemon USA control.
Smashing one nation after another followed, along with sanctions war on dozens of others.
US proxy hot war on Russia is the closest it’s come to direct confrontation between the world’s dominant nuclear powers.
Because of what’s going on, the risk of pushing things toward this outcome is ominously high.
It’s at a time when a detached from reality imposter masquerades as hegemon USA’s head of state — a figure aware of little more than what’s scripted for him to recite or paraphrase.
It’s also at a time when neocon extremists are in charge of Washington’s geopolitical agenda — elements running things on the world stage for the US since the 1990s.
The vast majority of Americans and their European counterparts are unaware of how their lives, well-being and futures are endangered by the criminal gang in charge of running things in Washington.
The good news, if there is any, is that Russia is soundly defeating hegemon USA’s Ukraine project — a dagger it aimed at the Russian Federation’s heartland.
It’s just a matter of time before US proxies collapse altogether.
And with it, US military, political, financial and economic superiority will be weakened more than already — in stark contrast to rising Sino/Russian prominence on the world stage.
Along with proving its military superiority over the US-dominated West, Russia’s SMO showed its ability to outwit and outmaneuver their best and brightest.
Throughout the most-WW II period, hegemon USA never won a preemptive war of aggression against invented enemies threatening no one.
Historian Gabriel Kolko believed that US decline “began after the Korean War, was continued in relation to Cuba, and was greatly accelerated in Vietnam – (then GW Bush and Obama/Biden greatly) exacerbate(d) it further.”
Geopolitical analysts Immanuel Wallerstein and Chalmers Johnson said much the same thing, Johnson stressing:
Inevitable US decline is the same dynamic that doomed past empires – “isolation, overstretch, the uniting of local and global forces opposed to imperialism, and in the end bankruptcy,” combined with growing police state tyranny and loss of personal freedoms, adding:
It’s far too late “for mere scattered reforms of our government or bloated military to make much difference.”
The scourge of US neocon extremism in charge of running its geopolitical agenda since the 1990s has been hastening its decline on the world stage.
Perhaps in hindsight, Russia’s SMO in Ukraine and Donbass will be seen as a defining blow against its aim to dominate the world community of nations by whatever it takes to achieve its diabolical aims.
The potentially dangerous wildcard of things heading toward East/West confrontation — the risk of nuclear war — tops all other concerns if lunatics in charge of the Washington asylum push things this war.
With them in charge at a time of no White House leadership, the unthinkable is possible.
For now, slaying the Nazi-infested Ukraine monster by Russian forces is good news.
Donbass and predominantly Russian-speaking areas of eastern and southern Ukraine are being liberated from the scourge of Nazified control.
What remains of Ukraine when Russia declares mission accomplished will exclude its industrial and resource-rich east and south — areas either to join the Russian Federation or become independent republics.
Puppet Zelensky and Ukraine’s battered and beaten military claim about withdrawing regime troops from liberated Lisichansk to save lives was utter rubbish.
Russia smashed them, forcing them to either surrender or be eliminated.
On Sunday, Russia’s Defense Ministry said its forces and LPR freedom fighters established full control over Lisichansk and nearby settlements of Belogorovka, Novodruzhesk, Maloryazantsevo and Belaya Gora — along with liberation of Lugansk entirely, other than scattered mopping-up operations.
Liberation of Donetsk will follow ahead — and with it, another humiliating defeat for the empire of lies.
If hegemon USA continues to orchestrate and direct cross-border shelling of Russian civilian areas by what remains of Ukraine’s greatly degraded military, Russia’s Defense can, and most likely will, retaliate more strongly.
The longer Russia’s SMO continues, the more smashed Ukraine will become.
The notion of its already defeated military turning things around against vastly superior Russian firepower goes beyond wishful thinking and pure fantasy to the absurd.
And no matter how much more in the way of weapons and munitions thrown at Ukraine by US/Western regimes, nothing on the ground will change.
Demilitarizing and deNazifying the made-in-the-USA Ukraine monster is the latest defeat of the empire of lies, the latest blow to its imperial project.
All the pretense and bravado otherwise dissolve in the light of reality.
Yet theater of the absurd remarks like the following persist.
On Sunday, so-called Biden regime national security council coordinator/former Pentagon spokesman, John Kirby, defied reality, saying:
Puppet “Zelensky gets to determine how victory is decided (sic) and when and on what terms (sic).”
“And what we’re going to do is continue to make sure that can succeed on the battlefield so that he can succeed at the table (sic).”
Kirby’s whistling past the graveyard won’t change a thing on the ground.
Russia is decisively winning the battle of Ukraine and Donbass.
What matters most is what follows.
