On Feb. 28, 4 days after Russia’s liberating SMO began, NewYorkMag.com got things backwards, saying:
“Russia’s War of Self-Destruction From Ukraine’s fierce resistance to the unified global backlash, Putin’s adventure is blowing up in his face (sic).”
In late November, the publication asked:
“Should Ukraine give peace talks a chance?”
Without admitting the reality of a lost cause in Ukraine by the US/West and installed regime in Kiev, the publication highlighted that Russian strikes left much of its territory “cold and in the dark.”
Russian high-precision hypersonic munitions cannot be intercepted by regime air defenses.
They can significantly damage or destroy designated targets — whatever Russia’s Defense Ministry wants to take out.
Months after its SMO began, the regime suffered catastrophic losses of manpower, weapons, munitions and equipment.
Their arsenals greatly depleted, US/Western regimes cannot resupply Kiev with enough arms to make up for what Russia eliminated.
They’re unable to produce enough for this purpose.
In stark contrast, Russia’s Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev, said the following on Sunday:
“Our enemy is entrenched in Europe, North America, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and a whole number of other places that have sworn allegiance to today’s Nazis.”
“That is why we are boosting production of the most powerful means of destruction, including those based on new principles.”
He might have added that Russia’s cost of production is a small fraction of what the empire of lies wastes to enrich its merchants of death and related interests.
And weapons and munitions produced by Russia exceed the best in the West.
Its demilitarization and deNazification of Ukraine is proceeding as planned.
No large-scale offensive is needed.
Ukraine is self-destructing by throwing bodies at entrenched Russian forces for their firepower to eliminate.
In the battle for control of Artyomovsk, Donetsk, retired US Marine Col., Andrew Milburn said the following:
Ukraine is “taking extraordinarily high numbers of casualties” in pursuit of a lost cause.
The regime has “an acute regeneration problem.”
Unable to properly train replacements, they’re throwing bodies at Russian forces who’ve “never even fired a weapon before.”
In the battle for Artyomovsk and surrounding areas, the regime is losing hundreds of troops daily, up to 800 according to one estimate.
And its dead are left unburied, its wounded unable to keep fighting left behind to perish.
US/Western arms and related support are unable to halt Russia’s onslaught.
The made-in-the-USA Ukraine monster is bleeding to death from Russia’s overwhelming firepower.
Short of greater US/NATO intervention on the ground — large-scale enough to risk WW III — there’s nothing the empire of lies and its Western vassals can do to deter Russia from achieving its SMO aims.
Yet according to US-installed NATO puppet Stoltenberg, nonexistent Western peace and largely eliminated freedoms “are threatened (by Russia) winning in Ukraine.”
And this from Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Sergey Ryabkov, on Friday, saying:
The empire of lies “is not ready (to hold) talks on security guarantees for the Russian Federation.”
The Biden regime and most congressional members prioritize perpetual war-making instead.
Along with Ukraine’s self-destruction, the US/West is declining politically, economically, financially and militarily.
Analyst Larry Johnson believes that hegemon USA’s “days as the world’s policeman (are) end(ing).”
It’s increasingly evident in Ukraine.
“US weapons on the battlefield…are not game-changers.”
Russia’s SMO “exposed the weakness of the logistics capability of both the US and NATO members.”
They cannot produce enough to replenish Ukrainian losses.
Hegemon USA’s rage to “produc(e) grossly expensive” aerial and other weapons “is self-destructive.”
Sino/Russian technology rendered US “piloted aircraft (and 11 aircraft carriers) obsolete.
The US Navy’s latest one — the USS Gerald Ford, commissioned in July 2017 — cost a whopping $13 billion to produce.
Yet Russian and Chinese hypersonic missiles can sink it, and others vessels, in minutes.
And down virtually anything the empire of lies and its NATO vassals can send airborne.
Johnson stressed the following:
Sino/Russian technology advanced to where one of their “a precision guided (hypersonic) missile(s) can do the work of a bomber or jet fighter with only a fraction of the money required to deploy and maintain a manned aircraft.”
The late Chalmers Johnson was right, stressing the following:
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,” as well as its self-defeating rage for perpetual wars on invented enemies.
It’s far too late “for mere scattered reforms of our government or bloated military to make much difference.”
US decline continues despite spending countless trillions of dollars to remain the dominant global superpower — at the expense of vital homeland needs gone begging and greatly eroded freedoms disappearing altogether.
Will challenging Russia’s military superiority be hegemon USA’s denouement?
One thing is certain.
As long as the empire of lies continues its quest for unchallenged global dominance by brute force, chances for world peace, stability, cooperation among the world community of nations and compliance with the rule of law will be zero.
