If at first you don't succeed

I've long said that President Trump's greatest accomplishment was keeping the USA out of war with Russia. I still believe that Putin would have ordered the invasion of Ukraine if Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 election. But now that Biden is the Official Not-President, the neoclowns are desperately attempting to provoke war with Russia again:
Just a few weeks ago I wrote a column entitled “The Ukraine’s Many Ticking Time Bombs” in which I listed a number of developments presenting a major threat to the Ukraine and, in fact, to all the countries of the region. In this short time the situation has deteriorated rather dramatically. I will therefore begin with a short recap of what is happening.

First, the Ukrainian government and parliament have, for all practical purposes, declared the Minsk Agreements as dead. Truth be told, these agreements were stillborn, but as long as everybody pretended that there was still a chance for some kind of negotiated solution, they served as a “war retardant”. Now that this retardant has been removed, the situation becomes far more explosive than before.

The issue of the Minsk Agreements brought to the fore the truly breathtaking hypocrisy of the West: even though Russia never was a party of these agreements (Russia signed them as a guarantor, not as a party), the West chose to blame Russia for “not implementing” these agreements, that in spite of the fact that everybody knew that it was the Ukraine which, for fear of the various Neonazis movements, simply could not implement these agreements. This kind of “in your face” hypocrisy by the West had a tremendous impact on the internal Russian political scene which, in turn, greatly strengthened the position of those in Russia who never believed that a negotiated solution was possible in the first place. In that sense, these agreements represented a major victory for the Kremlin as it forced the West to show the full depth of its moral depravity.

Second, it is pretty obvious that the “Biden” administration is a who’s who of all the worst russophobes of the Obama era: Nuland, Psaki, and the rest of them are openly saying that they want to increase the confrontation with Russia. Even the newcomers, say like Ned Price, are clearly rabid russophobes. The folks in Kiev immediately understood that their bad old masters were back in the White House and they are now also adapting their language to this new (well, not really) reality.

Finally, and most ominously, there are clear signs that the Ukrainian military is moving heavy forces towards the line of contact.

The Saker isn't the only one seeing the signs. And while this isn't a war that the US can hope to win, what it will do is tie the US military down and give China a free hand in the South China Sea. And while you might wonder what good that will do the neoclowns, don't forget that while they are experts at subversion, their historical military record is one of defeat followed by defeat followed by catastrophic defeat.

Hate is not a strategy.

The only comparable international play would be if Russia toppled canada's government and installed neo-nazis, or maybe Lionov's national bolsheviks into power.

Chances are the USA would occupy the government houses, or if they didn't want to spend any lives, hit parliament with the 'rods from god.'

The very idea that the media refuses to mention or discuss nato's shenanigans in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, should inform the public that nuclear war is closer than it may appear while looking through the rearview mmirror at cold war history.

I disagree with the claim that the neoclowns have lost any wars. They were on the winning side of all wars. The fact that the US population has been on the losing side of all recent wars, does not mean that the neoclowns - in particular those with a particular interest in Near Eastern affairs - have not benefitted from those wars; in fact, their gains were immense. Why pretend that the US Army is an actor who pursues the interests of the US population? The actios of the US Army are designed to benefit a small group of oligarchs in the US and a expansionary/imperial ambitions of a state in the Near East. And both those parties have benefitted immensely from all war adventures of the past few decades.

One of my coworkers I don't bother discussing anything remotely political any longer has twin sons in their early twenties. Neither are in the military, which is more than fine these days. I think of all the young men and women that are however and have a mix of emotions running from anger and sorrow over how along with the Forever War in Asia more are going to lose their lives, but not in defense of their country. How I loathe pragmatists that sway with every breeze.

Apparently the continuing hostility towards Russia is in part China's policy to keep the US, Euro and Russia from rediscovering their common ancestry and heritage.

And while you might wonder what good that will do the neoclowns, don't forget that while they are experts at subversion, their historical military record is one of defeat followed by defeat followed by catastrophic defeat.

Not to mention the epic political failure this will result in domestically. Are the American people rearing and ready to go toe to toe with Russia over Ukraine? Are even the "pro-military no matter what" types ready to get out the pom-poms for even another small scale war, let alone a major one?

This President was defeated spectacularly at the ballot box and is only in power through inertia. He gets us involved in a large scale war that we cannot hope to win, and all bets are off on what happens to him/his admin domestically. The historical "rally around our commander-in-chief" during war can not be counted on by him. To be clear I am not talking about polling popularity, or election consequences. I see refusal to follow orders in the military as the mildest thing that might happen.

Blogger basementhomebrewer March 12, 2021 8:15 AM  

Sorry for the follow up post. Reading unrestricted warfare, I think it is likely that the Chinese are running psyops or straight up giving bad advice to a Biden administration that is indebted to them. Ukraine could very well not be a miscalculation to advance promethean goals, but a operation orchestrated directly by the Chinese.

Blogger SonyAD March 12, 2021 8:15 AM  

More clear day by day that the western Anglo-American Empire, with the capital in Rome or the Middle East - or two capitals in both places, is the Evil Empire embodied in our times. The anti-human empire or at least the anti-'Caucasian' human empire. Ever increasingly anti-energy, anti-technology (except as applicable to weapons and distractions), anti-family, anti-procreation, anti-freedom, anti-democracy, anti-industry (as applicable to creation and preservation of prosperity and welfare of the people), anti-social uplift and emancipation, anti-prosperity, anti-truth, anti-integrity, anti-humanity and anti-civilisation. Against everything their ruling class and henchmen and acolytes profess to be in favour of and to support. And institutionally racist and sexist in the opposite direction they accuse themselves of being. Truly Babylon, the great harlot. Everything is an inversion, lies, counterfeited or double standard and hypocrisy. From the monetary system to the laws, the so called institutions, principles, everything. Everything institution is either heavily tainted or almost completely rotten. Only disparate islands of morality, dignity, integrity, justice and truth remain within The Empire.

The Empire is post truth, post beauty, post honesty, post dignity, post law and order, post institutions, post integrity and, most importantly, post principles.

For weeks now, the Evil Empire has been injecting millions of its unsuspecting citizens with sterilant or slow acting poison, at frenzied pace. No one bats an eye. No whistle blowers. No push back. No revolt. Basic, fundamental rights and freedoms were just discarded like so much paper. In the thunderous applause of much of the public, no less.

The evil plans are laid out bare in plain daylight. They aim to inject absolutely everyone they possibly can with their poisons. Certainly anyone within the borders of The Empire proper and its myriad colonies and vassal states.

The perpetrators of this massive crime against humanity are either certain they will get away with it or actually do not care whether they do or not. Reality has become more phantasmagorical and absurd than the purposefully and intentionally most phantasmagorical and absurd abstract art. Common everyday reality is more surreal and bizarre than most episodes of the Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits. It really is like most of the population are actual real life NPCs.

Almost everyone seems completely oblivious to the slow, methodical, calculated genocide occurring before their very eyes. And slate themselves for culling as well. One cannot help but wonder whether the sabre rattling towards Russia is simply because they don't wish to genocide their population as The Empire is clearly intent on doing.

As I said before, it all hangs together and makes sense if you look through the world as a giant, global conspiracy to make the Caucasian phenotype extinct, wipe it from the face of the Earth. Everything suddenly makes sense through that lense. Which itself gives credibility to the Serpent Seed doctrine, in my humble opinion.

It has not even been two months for the Xiden team to foment war. What they consider to be a money making operation will soon turn out to be a bloodbath if Putin takes off the gloves.

Trump may have not gotten into a shooting war w/Russia, but he certainly set the table for the Biden Admin...

"The Trump administration on Wednesday approved the sale of lethal arms to Ukraine's government as the country battles pro-Russian separatists in its eastern provinces...The move from the White House is a departure from the Obama administration, which frequently condemned Russian aggression in the Ukraine but refused to approve the sale of arms to the country's Western-aligned government."

Trump was, really, quite aggressive towards Russia (maybe to prove he wasn't a 'Russian Asset/Putin Puppet')...along w/arming the Ukrainians(something Obama didn't even do) he shut the Russian consulate down, bombed/invaded key Russian ally Syria, and moved U.S. troops right onto the Russian border.

Trump always talked a good game but, like every other useless Republican, always caved-in for fear of 'bad optics'.

Unfortuantely, I fully agree with @2 .

This is what makes me pessimistic, as I fear that the Saker or possibly even the obviously intelligent but perhaps too kind Tsar might make a mistake. Neocon bullies will push forward for as long as it has no negative consequences to themselves.

In such a high tension region, I think the only message that can give peace a chance is a russian "mistake" that accidently shoots down a plane filled with a high level delegation of US "diplomats", ideally including a board member of Burisma holdings. The only message warmongers will understand is that they will personally be designated as high priority targets should their war fantasies be triggered, and that enenemies of Russia will be footed with the bill, whether in the loo, or on the shores of the Potomac.

The True Believers in Wunderwaffen und Ubermenschen always show up for these threads. The funny thing is that's not how America won any of our wars.

In the 1700s we won by the same strategies the VC used two centuries later. In the 1860s Americans were defeated by superior manufacturing and a flood of foreign immigrants. In 1898 the empire sunk Spain's navy and eventually took Cuba and the Philippines. in the two world wars, the empire won again by superior manufacturing and relied on foreign troops to take most of the casualties, especially in Asia and Eastern Europe.

Today, America has inadequate manufacturing. Don't expect any near-peer wars to proceed like the one in the 1940s.

I recently read the sample of a new novel called "2034: A Novel of the Next World War" by Elliot Ackerman and Adm James Stavridis.

They both seem to have drunk the cool aid, although this is about a war with China in 2034. I was interested because the date was similar to a data that Vox has suggested and because it was about something I think will happen.

I quickly lost interest because the main characters were, ahhh, the usual. There was a female commodore in charge of a 5 destroyer flotilla, two of which were still in San Diego undergoing repairs (probably because like other senior females in the Navy she tended to crash them into freighters), as well as a female caption of her flag ship.

The commodore had once being trying out to be a seal until she broke her leg in a parachuting mishap.

After that, I thought story was going to devolve into lots of shit about 125lb butt-kicking babes taking on whole divisions of Chinese infantry so I gave it up.

However, it is the sort of shit the NeoClowns would promote now that the move to China is off the agenda.

@21 My grandfather was a member of the "intelligensia" of Ukraine. Born and raised in Kiev, went to Moscow to go to agricultural university to come back to Kiev just prior to WW2. He survived the war. What he said to me is that the Galicia region had historical ties to the Austro-Hungarian Emprie and despised those more east and considered them "muzik", which is a deragratory term that means peasant (top class insult and top class term of endearment, like n*****r). The Ukrainians of the eastern part did not like the Soviets by and large, but the Galicians were such a-holes that they sided with the lesser of two evils. My grandfather said, if the Galicians/Nazis treated the eastern Ukrainians better and even showed a little respect, every one of those Ukrainians would have turned around and gone after the Soviet Russians. If you want to know why my deputy prime minister in Canada is so hated, that is part of the back story. I have strong ties to the Ukrainian community so I know.

This was why our own special forces refused Obama orders to help them. They did their own research and said hell no.

The Maidan government sent a bunch of these clowns in their own uniforms, as "Punishment Battalions" to supposedly pacify ethnic Russians in Donbas. After murdering a bunch of people in an ethnic cleansing attempt, the whole region erupted into guerrilla warfare.

I often wondered why the Russians did not supply heavier arms to gangs in the US and Mexico after the US supplied heavy arms to Ukraine. The narco and human smuggler gangs could use at least RPGs, automatic weapons, and better explosives to crank the violence level up to 11. Shoulder fired missiles could make the MX-US border a no fly zone for border patrol.

BTW the US MSM version of what happened in Ukraine is far different from what reporters with video cameras learned from talking to Ukrainians. Also, Ukraine dammed up (blocked) the source of Crimea's water, an act of war. Putin may repay the favor if Ukraine gets uppity.

The earlier Saker column was also good. In short, the Ukrainian opposition met with Putin and they agreed to transfer the Sputnik V technology to a Ukrainian pharma company. The Ukraine govt said no, and said they would get the less effective Chinese vaccine. However the money allocated was stolen so the rich and well connected go to Russia to get vaccinated.

And while you might wonder what good that will do the neoclowns, don't forget that while they are experts at subversion, their historical military record is one of defeat followed by defeat followed by catastrophic defeat.
Is it really a defeat when all the bleeding and dying is done by someone else?
The "let's you an him fight" strategy has no downsides or drawbacks to the manipulators: the spending of someone else's blood, wealth and strength is all things that you don't have to do and there's also the possibility that they could go on a power-trip and start a war and have others die in it "just because they can" or because they hate the people dying.

But there are some out there who hate Putin for preventing Russia being a neoliberal carcass to be picked over by financial vultures.

The US and Russia have always been friends, except for that time when one was ruled by fake-Russians, and now the other being ruled by fake-Americans.

National Socialism is not a "Germanic" ideology but a universal one, the Germans were just the first ones to implement it. The entire point is to uplift your own people first, and damn the rest of the world.

You seem to be confusing "nazism" for "aryanism." It has nothing to do with what particular race you are. Chinese could be national socialists, slavs could be national socialists, Americans could be, and so on.

Hitler himself expressed admiration for Chinese and Japanese cultures and freely admitted that their cultures were superior... for them.

The nazis didnt worship "Aryanism" like propaganda would have you believe. There were practically zero blonde blue-eyed nazis in the upper party. It wasnt about your particular phenotype, just that your phenotype was the only one that has any say in how its country is run.

You can see, i hope, why this would be concerning to Jews, whose entire racial philosophy is "if the cats and dogs are fighting, the mouse gets away with the cheese."

All those calls for "diversity" and "inclusion" will be shoveled the second the dying starts.

It's easy to virtue signal and pronounce diversity as your greatest strength when times are easy and nobody is shooting at you. But when it comes to die, diversity will take a backseat.

The interesting question is what will happen when the people denouncing white males as the root of all evil today tries recruiting in high schools in white zip-codes after the dying has begun. Will our sons, grandsons and nephews have the sense to tell the recruiter to go fight his own damned battles? After all, he wouldn't want to take the job and glory from a diverse woman of color, would he? That would be racist. If there's one thing he knows, racists be bad and shit.

“I don't get how a slavic people would attach to the aryan/germanic ethos”

It’s a binary perspective, with WW II and post WW II as the perspective. For Ukrainians, the Soviets are Russia. Soviets killed a lot of a Ukrainians, and held it under Russia’s thumb. Nazis fought Soviets/Russia. Anything more as a foundation is dorky dialectic or Russian propaganda, from that perspective.

Watching the Azeri missile armed drones slaughter Armenians troops in the open, in their bunkers and in their transport was an eye opener for just how effective Russian missiles and targeting are now. They are instantly lethal in a permissive air environment and Ukraine has no hope of shutting them down or even interfering with them and we're not even talking ARM which will probably destroy all functioning radar within a hundred miles of the border.
The anti-ship missiles Russians demonstrated against land targets in Syria were launched from submarines in the Med and from tiny warships in the Caspian Sea. They hit their targets.
When I was in the USN we had a little saying that was never proven wrong in 29 years of service, "work it may, shine it must." If you have taken note recently of the material condition of our Navy hulls you won't find anything that isn't covered with running rust and splotches. It makes me suspect that the Aegis doesn't work, the missiles don't spin up and the guns won't fire. Crashing our best ships into merchant ships due to pure incompetence of everyone on board doesn't give me a warm fuzzy about confronting the Russians and there is no way in Hell Ukraine will survive the experience if the Russians notice them attacking Russia or its immediate allies/buffer states.

Blogger Mr.MantraMan March 13, 2021 9:22 AM  

I know they won't purposely mothball any nuke especially if someone from the Right asks them to show some sense. If the Blue cities they are near might get lucky and the ships be way out to sea or they mothball them to fund the whatever they fund. The shitty ex-Soviet navy probably rusts its nuke boats way away from where the real estate is sought after, but our Navy resides in desirable locals, too bad for them.

Reading Senator Tammy Duckworth's response to Tucker and the comments from her supporters made me realize the gals in the Navy will absolutely ignore the red warning light on the dash if they have to show any responsibility for anything. As for the Air Force and missile command, imagine Major LaQueesha Jones in the silo with Captain Missy Hotbottom as they feud over the attention of General Carlos Tightpants?

I recall that on at least one of those ships, the combat info center didn't have their radar displays working properly because no one knew how to fix them. It didn't matter anyway, because the diverse officerettes on watch had had a cat fight and weren't talking.

There is no reason to think that anything will work, nor that the diversity would be able or even willing to make it work.

Yep. They beat the KMT mainly because the KMT was a bunch of warlords who would betray each other as eagerly as they would fight the Commies, and because the KMT had the same Chinese soldiers as the Commies, so it was an even match, except for the infighting on the KMT side. It helped a lot that the KMT looted the peasants first, last and always, while the Commies didn't start looting the peasants until after they had won decisively.

And yet the PLA gets funding. They have a mission, and they are valuable to the CCP. Obviously the mission isn't fielding an effective invading force, or they would be failing their mission, and heads would roll and funding would fail.

People who are dismissing the PLA and the PLAN and China in general see that the Chinese military doesn't serve the purpose we expect from a military, cannot do what we see our empire's military doing. People who dismiss the PLA are missing that these ``deficiencies'' are deliberate, that China's strategy is not the same as our empire's strategy.

I have no idea whether China will win a war with us, but if they try, it will be because they think they can win. More likely they plan to win the war between US and Russia that their presidential puppet is stirring up for them.
