It has now been a month since my last update, so I have decided to post this note to share a few thoughts with you.
First, the boring stuff: my health is definitely doing better and, while I very much regret having had to take that time off, I now am sure that it was the right decision, both for me and the blog. I hope to come back to full-time blogging by the end of July. Again, I apologize to you all for my absence, and I ask for your understanding.
Second, and as I had predicted, the situation in the world and in the Ukraine has changed a great deal over the past couple of months. I will just mention a few bullet-points of what I see as the highlights:
- The "the glorious Ukrainians are winning" narrative has now quasi-officially faceplanted (heck, even the NYT changed its tune) and nobody sane is spewing this nonsense anymore. The reality is that the Ukrainians are, on average, losing about one battalion per day, and this is why they are now sending barely trained civilians to the East: most of the (often very well-trained and courageous) Ukrainian combat units are even dead, prisoners, MIA or in "cauldrons" (actual or by firepower) with no chance to escape.
- It is now also undeniable that what began as a special military operation (SMO) has now turned into a open and full-scale war between the consolidated West (aka the Anglo-Zionist Empire) and Russia: the Empire has now "hit" Russia with everything it had short of a direct military attack. The (originally 200'000+ strong) Ukrainian military, arguably the strongest NATO military force (which is otherwise mostly composed of small and thoroughly woked-out "parade militaries"!), especially with the full support of the West (intelligence, weapons, money, political, etc. etc. etc.) is being "demilitarized" and "denazified" by a vastly superior Russian military force (but not one bigger in size: Russia has used only a fraction of her full military power). The outcome here is not in doubt.
- This reality has now been fully accepted by the Russian society which now stands behind the Kremlin (at 80%+) which has made no secret that it is now locked into an existential war against the West. This has been the case since at least 2013, but now the original ratios (roughly 80% informational, 15% economic and 5% military) have shifted to what I would call "total war by proxy".
- The hardcore crazies in the West (US Neocons, UK, Poland and the 3B) are trying hard to trigger a fullscale war between NATO and Russia and, so far, the spineless Eurolemmings have let them set the agenda, however suicidal it might be for the EU and NATO. Frankly, my disgust with western Europe is total - I never had any illusions about the "new" Europeans - and all I can say is that they all richly deserve each other and what is coming their way. All I can say is this: continue to act like Nazis and you shall be denazified. It is really that simple.
- The leaders of the Empire know that they lost yet again, and they are seeking refuge in their usual coping mechanisms: ideological self-gratification and deep, deep denial. While the EU is committing a straightforward economic, political and social suicide, the Biden Administration has gone "full woke", as did corporate "America"(meaning the USA, of course, not the American continent): the so-called "minorities" are now shoved down the collective throats of the US people now, no matter how small, or freaky, the said "minorities" are. This is especially striking in the kind of advertisements the US corporations are now unanimously producing. I think, for example, of the morbidly obese black women in diapers (!!!) taking "ballerina poses" YouTube is now regularly showing. Watching these ads, one would think that blacks in the USA occupy all positions of authority and prestige, that most US women are lesbians, and millions of US kids (and even infants!) urgently need a sex change (watch the excellent "What is a Woman?" documentary to see how insane this has all become). When I see this collective woke insanity, I cannot help but wonder whether corporate "America" is not deliberately trying to really piss off the vast majority of US Americans and trigger some kind of major and violent internal crisis.
- The Russians, in the meantime, are passing new laws against the propaganda of homosexuality: while in the past, such propaganda was only banned if directed at children, now this expanded to the entire population of Russia. Just to clarify: Russia is not banning homosexuals and their sexual practices, however pathological, remain fully legal. But what Russia IS doing is refusing to consider homosexuality as a "normal and natural variation in human sexuality" ( Wikipedia). In other words, the Russians still consider homosexuality as a psychological disorder which might deserve compassion, but not affirmation (nevermind encouragement). Since "inclusiveness" and "positivity" are now key western "values" this is also a message from Russia: keep your woke-freaks and their ideology to yourselves, we want none of it!
- In the meantime the Euroukrainians are now planning to ban and destroy over 100'000'000 copies of Russian language books. Hitler would be proud. The Eurolemmings have nothing to say. You know, "#cancelRussia" thingie (meaning both Russians themselves and the Russian culture in all its forms) and all that "it's okay when we do it" or "our SOBs" stuff.
- The Western economic Blitzkrieg against Russia has totally failed and the joke in Russia is that while McCain famously once said that "Russia is a gas station masquerading as a country" with contempt, "Biden" is now saying the same thing, but with deep envy :-)
Translation: for our Fatherland
I could go on and on, but the bottom line is this: the West has declared total war on Russia (and, de facto, to all of Zone B) and Russia has accepted this. For a decade and more the West has tried hard to wake up and provoke the proverbial Russian bear and these efforts have finally been successful: the bear is now out, and he is very, very angry. To clarify, by this I am not referring to former Atlantic Integrationists like Medvedev now "coming out" as a Eurasian Sovereignist hardliner (he is clearly setting himself up for a future Presidential election and says all the "right things"), but about the Russian people which are now in what I call a full "WWII" mode (" Rise up immense country " and all that). To the right is the kind of images now circulating on the Russian Internet and which expresses the awareness that Europe was never truly denazifed, at least not in the US occupied countries.
Russia is now determined to finish this ugly job, once and forever. You want to "cancel Russia"? In your dreams only, but Russia can, and will, "cancel Nazism" once and or all. 1000 years of that crap is enough!
From the first Crusades to the invasion of the USSR by the united Europe under Hitler's command, the West has always has some kind of ideology to justify its wars of imperialist aggression. The interesting thing is that now this is over and rather than justify is acts of aggression in the name of some putatively universal religion or ideology, the western elites (and, alas, much of its population) have now finally shown their true face which is:
- Virulent anti-Russian racism in its purest form (again, Hitler would be proud)
- Pure and overt Satanism under the label of "Woke" ideology (the last western ideology it appears) with its focus on the destruction of the family and, especially, children (Satanists know that they cannot do anything against the Creator of all, hence they try to take out their hatred and revenge against His creatures, especially children)
- Overt and even "in your face" hatred to any and all who oppose that agenda (as the French revolutionary Louis Antoine de Saint-Just famously declared "No freedom for the enemies of freedom", right?!)
The truth is that the real West, the one born from the Middle-Ages (and *not* from the Roman or Greek civilizations!) has always been ruled by cynical, evil, thugs. In the past, these thugs always concealed their real worldview and agenda under all sorts of pious pretexts, now its only "ideology" left is pure hatred and wokism (same thing, really).
I submit that it is impossible to predict what will happen in the coming months and years - there are simply too many variables which can dramatically affect our future. What began as a special military operation (as opposed to a combined arms operation) has now morphed into what one could call WWIII or even WWIV (depending on your definitions). This war will last for several years unless, of course, the Neocons and their associated crazies in the EU get their way and trigger a nuclear conflict: in the latter case it will be short and very final.
Right now the focus is on the Donbass and the southern Ukraine, but we have to understand two things about this:
- The Ukronazis and their NATO bosses have already long lost that war, and all the West and its Nazi puppets in Kiev are doing is trying to prolong this unwinnable war for as long as possible to get a maximum number of Ukrainians killed or maimed and to destroy as much of the Ukraine as possible and make Russia "pay the highest price" for her (quite inevitable) victory on the battlefield. What a paradox! The Russian "aggressors" are trying as hard as they can to save as many Ukrainians as possible (even at the cost of their own lives!) along with whatever is left of the Ukrainian infrastructure after 30 years of "independence", while the western "defenders" and even "allies" of the Ukraine want to turn it into a desolate moonscape covered with corpses.
- This is not a war about the Ukraine, at least not anymore, this is now a war for the future of the European continent and even the future international order. As I have said many times already, the Russians fully intend to denazify at least all of the European continent, preferably by economic and political means but, if needed, by military means too. Why? Because the West has left Russia no other choice. For Russia and, I would argue, all of Zone B the choice is both stark and simple: true and full sovereignty (economic, of course, but also cultural, spiritual and civilizational) or subjugation.
In other words, this is not a war Russia can afford to lose and the Russian people know it.
Last time around, Russia lost about 27 million people while China lost about 35 millions. That a total of 62 million people, about two thirds of which were civilians. Keep these figures in mind when you look at the quick and quite radical modernization of the Russian and Chinese armed forces (btw - the Chinese people also "get it" and they fully support Russia, as does the Chinese leadership, even if they try to keep a low profile for the time being and let Russia carry the burden of being on the frontline of this war: simply put, the Chinese are buying time which, frankly, they still need to achieve parity, or better, against the US and its protectorates in Asia such as Taiwan, Japan, ROK or Australia. The Russians also understand that as they themselves were in a similar position between 2000 and 2018. But they know that the Chinese Dragon will have to fully "wake up" sooner rather than later.
Yeah, I know, most folks in the West don't know that, or don't care, but the point is now what the folks in the West do not know, but rather it is what the people of Russia and China know and understand quite well. Only an utter fool would doubt or disregard the kind of determination which sits deep inside the souls of the Russian and Chinese people to never allow the West to subjugate them again. Ever.
[Sidebar: yes, I know, the Japanese Empire which attacked China was not part of the West (yet), but that is an extremely superficial argument which fails to understand that it was precisely western imperialism which created the conditions, in both China and Japan, which resulted in the Japanese imperialist attacks against the entire Asian-Pacific region!]
The above does not even begin to cover all the amazing developments which have taken place in the last few months. Not only have there been truly huge changes INSIDE Russia (and they are only accelerating), but also in Latin America, Africa and the Middle-East. And I will revisit all these topics in about a month or so, when I will come back to full-time blogging. Besides, in a month or so many of the things I mentioned above will become even more obvious for all to see so rather than trying to establish "fact X" we will be able to actually discuss and analyze it, its reality having been quite established.
[Sidebar: please remember who told you the truth and who lied to you over the past months. There were many, many such liars, ranging from the official propaganda machine (aka the "free press") to the "Putin has lost it all" emo-Marxists and assorted 6th columnists who, whether they understood it or not, served the purpose of the Empire's PSYOPs. Also please remember that Andrei Martynov, Bernard and Gonzalo Lira not only spoke truthfully, but they were right and their detractors totally wrong. We all owe them an immense debt of gratitude!]
Frankly, before my forced break, I was getting really frustrated trying to prove to misinformed or even fully brainwashed commentators that the official narrative (produced by the biggest strategic PSYOP in history) was a load of bull, based on lies and/or on a total "misunderstanding" (and I am being kind here!) of the real world outside the "mental Zone A". Now most of that narrative has collapsed.
I am also confident that a month from today, things will be even more obvious than they are today.
So, my friends and readers, I leave you in the (very competent) hands of Amarynth, Herb and the rest of the Saker team and I very much look forward to my full return, God willing, in a month or so.
Kind regards to all, and many thanks for your support!
PS: yesterday I was re-watching the superb movie by Costa Gavras "Z" which, at the end, lists all the works of art, literature, music, etc. which the (US CIA backed) Greek "colonels" banned and I thought to myself: "what leftist director would make such a movie today about how the entire West is now doing the same with all things Russian?". None, of course. I also noticed the sweet irony of Costa Gavras' movie being called "Z" (which in Greek stands for "Ζει" or "he lives") and I wondered if the copyright owners of the movie will now have to rename it since the letter "Z" is now banned amongst doubleplusgoodthinking russophobes. Finally, there are some in the West who want to create two categories: "good Russians", who are expected to publicly denounce their country and President, and "bad Russians" who refuse to do so. Hitler wanted Jews to wear a star of David, so could we see a day when "bad Russians" in Zone A will be told to wear a "Z". Right now, no T-shirt or mugs printing companies in Zone A will accept to print a "Z" on their items (I know, I tried and failed!), but considering the collective rage and insanity of the western ruling elites, maybe the letter "Z" will become obligatory for "bad Russians" in Zone A? Just kidding, of course, but rewatching the movie "Z" felt quite eerie anyway.
