I Might Be Wrong About The West Not Wanting To Go All The Way




Boom


Update: Mar. 1 

The Pentagon has asked for a special hotline to be established with the Russian military to avoid any “mistakes” or “misunderstandings” that could lead to an unintended nuclear escalation. But with Poland now being used as a staging ground for weapons shipments to the Ukrainian Army — and Putin warning that if those weapons are used against Russian forces, the nations supplying them will be targeted — that can’t be good. Similarly, the US/NATO air forces flying out of Poland and Romania may be reconsidering their threat to engage the Russian air force, which owns the skies over Ukraine. But with Western media going berserk over how “Russia is losing” (even as they encircle the Azov battlaion and as many as half the Ukrainian ground forces in the East) — and many posturing fools in Congress pressing hard for war against Russia “to get rid of Putin” — Washington could be become hostage to its own rhetoric. More immediately worrying for Moscow, the US LGBQ have pledged their “support” to Ukraine

While Russian forces having taken inordinate care not to target Ukraine’s cities and civilian population (while being derided by Washington for doing so), with Zalensky now cyncially siting howitzers and heavy mortars within apartment complexes to draw counterfire — and handing out more than 10,000 Kalashnikovs to anyone who wants one (including gangs now looting and waging turf wars in Kiev) — the Ukrainian president is about to realize his deplorable desire for enough gruesome photo ops to emotionally blackmail other countries into sticking their fists into his tar baby.        

One thing is certain, the all-out financial war now underway against the Russian people is spiking already unaffordable food and fuel prices in the USA and Europe. Blowback from the US/UK/NATO bloc taking a sledgehammer to the world’s integrated financial flows can only intensify into major global recession. (Which is either insanely stupid. Or part of the Great Reset/digital currency trap.)

Meanwhile, Russia continues to supply much of America’s needed oil. And Gasprom has stepped up natural gas deliveries to Germany. But given Munich’s moves to enter this war, that too may change.   -William Thomas

I MIGHT BE WRONG ABOUT THE WEST NOT WANTING TO GO ALL THE WAY


Try making a few points and look what happens…


From Caitlin Johnstone:

“Russian state media have confirmed that Vladimir Putin’s orders to move the nation’s nuclear deterrent forces into “special combat duty mode” have been carried out, citing “aggressive statements from NATO related to the Russian military operation in Ukraine.” -Cailtin Johnstone


NATO would love to hit this 17-mile Russian convoy 15 miles outside Kyv (Kiev) -Maxxar satellite view


“This also comes as the ruble crashes following crushing sanctions and the banning of Russian banks from the international money transfer system SWIFT by the US and its allies…” -Caitlin Johnstone


Well maybe, dear Caitlin. The ruble was getting hammered. But it's already bounced back from losing 40% of its value on  foreign currency exchanges (!) to retaining 75% of iits value at the moment. And Russia’s Central Bank foreign assets have been seized and Russians are lining up outside banks and ATMs to withdraw funds. But Putin and his advisers have long prepared for this. They have ammasssed huge gold reserves. And Moscow will no doubt retaliate in unexpected ways. Seizing state assets is a two-way street. And there is no Plan B for the dollar.  



The EU is now in the final stages of Mass Hysteria Psychosis


“GOING NUCLEAR” — HOW REAL IS THE THREAT? 

by William Thomas


When Vladimir Putin declared that “no one should have any doubts that a direct attack on our country will lead to the destruction and horrible consequences for any potential aggressor,” the Washington Past called this statement from a leader that does not bluff: “empty, a mere baring of fangs.”

When the President of the Russian Federation again tried to warn: “No one should have any doubts that a direct attack on our country will lead to the destruction and horrible consequences for any potential aggressor,” the Pentagon and US policy makers assured each other that they “don’t see an increased threat in that regard.” 

“No one should read Vladimir Putin’s order putting his nuclear forces on high alert as meaning anything more than his guff,” echoed the NY Post. “It’s all just another absurd mind game.”  

Do they mean as absurd as the Great Slaughter that began wtih the assasination of some archduke in Austria? 

Scott Ritter, a former US Marine and UN weapons inspect in Iraq, is always worth listening to. Regarding that NY Post editorial and similar bloviation blaring 24/7 from Fox, CNN and the rest of the fakestream presstitutes, Ritter warns that the bottomless abyss separating Western and Russian narratives could shortly prove fatal to the world. 

Yes, I was wrong again in ascribing any shred of sanity to Western leaders who remain in full meltdown mode. Because it looks like NATO’s going for the big seppuku. By invoking UN Security Council Article IV, and deploying 40,000 combat soldiers — some, Scott Ritter points out, “on NATO’s Eastern flank abutting Ukraine” — NATO “is positioning itself for potential offensive military action.”

“What happens when Russia begins to attack NATO/EU/US/Allied arms deliveries as they arrive on Ukrainian soil? Will NATO, acting under Article IV, create a buffer zone in Ukraine, using the never-before-mobilized Response Force?” this former USMC intelligence officer wonders.

What happens when Russian forces blow up arms shipments bound for Ukraine while  transiting through Poland or NATO bases? Or crossing the Atlantic or entering the Black Sea on US ships? Because they will. Under wartime rules, they have every right to interdict arms intended for their enemies.

What if “the EU acts on its pledge to provide Ukraine with aircraft and pilots to fight the Russians? How would these be deployed to Ukraine? What happens when Russia begins shooting down these aircraft as soon as they enter Ukrainian airspace? Does NATO now create a no-fly zone over western Ukraine?” Or will those air bases be taken out?

“What happens if a no-fly zone (which many officials in the West are promoting) is combined with the deployment of the Response Force to create a de facto NATO territory in western Ukraine?”

The Ukrainian government had already made moves to set up as a “government in exile” in Ukraine. Though an independent reporter earlier failed to locate Zelensky’s new offices, what happens if Lvov replaces Kyev as the capital under a NATO air and ground umbrella?

As Ritter remarks, “while Russia is engaged in military operations it deems critical to its national security, the U.S. and NATO run the risk of failing to comprehend the deadly seriousness of Putin’s instructions to his military leaders regarding the elevation of the level of readiness on the part of Russia’s strategic nuclear forces.

“To dismiss the national security strategy of a nation that has been subjected to detailed bureaucratic vetting as nothing more than the temper tantrum of an out of touch autocrat represents a dangerous disregard of reality, the consequences of which could prove to be fatal to the U.S., NATO, and the world.

So yup. The nuclear threat is real. 


Over to you, Caitlin:


Caitlin Johnstone -rubikon.news

“Is keeping the possibility of NATO membership open and retaining control of the Donbas really so important that we should roll the dice on the existence of the entire human species on it? Is maintaining a hostile client state on Russia’s border truly worth gambling the life of every terrestrial organism for? Are the desperate unipolarist grand chessboard maneuverings of a few powerful people in Washington, Langley and Arlington really worth risking the life of everyone you know and love?

“If the answer is no, then building some opposition to what we’re seeing here becomes a very urgent matter.” 


Helpful Hint: In case of nucelar attack, double-mask and stay six-feet apart.

Or put your hope in Russia’s unmatched air defenses and the sanity of American military commanders who have refused suicidal orders before. This time, there won’t be another Vasili Arkhipov.




I’m Here In Kiev, Ukraine -that Chilean dude explains why this is happening     2:07:13


[Excellent analysis of the current situaition in Ukraine starting at 1:40:50. Also on how this came about. With two corrections: Saddam didn’t have any WMD because he destroyed his yellow cake reprocessing facilities and US-supplied chemical-biological warfare stocks to avoid a smack down. This was confirmed by on-site weapons inspections well before the US launched its “bs” war. (See my book: Bringing The War Home.) And Putin didn't “grab” the Crimea Peninsula. After seeing the bloody anti-Russian protests during Maidan, the Russian nationals making up 95% of the peninsula’s population voted unanimously for Russian annexation. President Putin, happy to “secure the lease” on Russia’s only warm water port in Skestopol, quickly obliged.]
