Minister Alexander Grushko revealing: “We are following with great concern the evolution of the situation in and around Kosovo…We see that the Kosovar authorities are taking a course for escalation, while it is obvious to us that they are relying on overt and covert support from their curators, primarily from the European Union and Washington”, says in preparation for whatever atrocities the socialist Western colonial powers are planning, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) announced: “As part of international military cooperation, in 2023 it is planned to conduct joint exercises with units of the ground forces of the Russian armed forces and units of the national armies of foreign states…Outside Russia, a joint exercise of the Collective Security Treaty Organization peacekeeping contingents ‘Indestructible Brotherhood-2023’ will be held on the territory of Armenia…In addition, eight bilateral exercises are planned to be held at the training grounds of Russia’s military districts…These exercises include Russian-Indian Indra-2023 drills, the joint military anti-terrorist command and staff exercises of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation member states Peace Mission-2023, the joint Russian-Lao military exercises, the joint Russian-Pakistani exercises Friendship-2023, the Russian-Algerian exercises, exercises with units of the collective forces of the rapid deployment of the Central Asian collective security region Frontier-2023, the Russian-Mongolian exercises Selenga-2023 and the Russian-Vietnamese exercises”.
In the present proxy war waged against Russia by the socialist Western colonial powers in Ukraine, this report notes, the MoD announced: “The Ukrainian Armed Forces lost up to 50 troops in fighting against the People’s Militia of the Lugansk People’s Republic” and revealed: “The Ukrainian military fired nearly 400 munitions using Grad multiple rocket launchers, as well as 122 mm, 152 mm and 155 mm artillery at the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic in the past day”—were Ukrainian munitions that killed and injured dozens of civilians across the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics—the MoD then announced: “As a result of a strike by four missiles with high-explosive warheads from US-supplied HIMARS multiple rocket launchers on a temporary deployment point, 63 Russian servicemen were killed”—after which the MoD revealed Russian Armed Forces destroyed 70 foreign mercenaries in the Donetsk People’s Republic and Kharkiv region, more than 40 militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were killed in the Yuzhnodonetsk direction by Russian Armed Forces, Russian Armed Forces destroyed 40 military units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Krasnolimansky direction, Russian Armed Forces destroyed up to 30 Ukrainian soldiers in the Kupyansk direction, Russian Armed Forces destroyed two Ukrainian artillery systems M-777 in the Donetsk People’s Republic, and Russian artillery destroyed two warehouses and two fuel storage facilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
With socialist Western colonial media articles now appearing like “Ukraine Faces Grim Start To 2023 After Fresh Russian Attacks”, this report continues, it caused former President George W. Bush special national security adviser Michael Allen to assess yesterday: “Zelensky understands that you need to continue to put pressure on the gas pedal – otherwise the West may get tired and stop financing Ukraine”—an assessment quickly joined by Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky senior aide Alexey Arestovich proclaiming Ukraine should be become a monarchy, with him exactly declaring: “If we are in the Lord of the Rings script a return of the king must happen…If you think rationally, the only way to kill everything that is coming at us from Moscow is to declare a monarchy”.
Virtually unknown to the American peoples, this report notes, is that the Pentagon is guided by the policy directives it receives from its Hudson Institute think tank, that was founded in 1961 by futurist, military strategist, and systems theorist Herman Kahn and his colleagues at the RAND Corporation—the Hudson Institute was founded to oppose the peace policies of President John F. Kennedy, that were countered by Herman Kahn’s book “On Thermonuclear War”, in which he wrote that the United States could well survive a full-scale nuclear war with the USSR while making cheerful statements that thirty million dead Americans was a completely acceptable price for the victory over the Soviets.
Most recently, this report continues, Director Peter Rough of the Hudson Institute’s Center on Europe and Eurasia and Hudson Institute senior fellow Luke Coffey released their open letter “The Perils Of A Post-Ukraine-War Russia”, wherein they delusionally assess: “What will happen inside Russia if the Ukraine war continues to go poorly for Moscow?…The possibilities range from revolution and insurgency to civil war and dissolution of the Russian Federation…And the odds of each increase by the day…The U.S. needs to be ready for such contingencies…Washington and its allies must prepare to contain any unrest within Russia and work with partners to respond to calls for self-determination—even independence—in addition to restoring the territorial integrity of countries now partly occupied by Russia”—and is a delusion countered by top Kremlin media analyst Victoria Nikiforova, who, in her just released open letter “The United States Prepared For The “Collapse Of Russia””, most factually points out: “The US overlooked the recovery and rise of Russia…Its economy is self-sufficient and stable, the army is mobile and modern…And most importantly, a nuclear stock equal to the American one was not only preserved by Russia, but also modernized with the latest technology…Our economy is quite stable despite all packages with sanctions…This winter will show that we actually live better than in Europe…The approval ratings of the president of the country were not even dreamed of by his foreign colleagues…The implementation of the NWO led to the annexation of four new regions to Russia – these are millions of people, vast territories, developed industry, and an excellent agricultural industry…And we haven’t really started anything yet”.
Among those Americans not deluding themselves with fantasies, like Russia collapsing or King Zelensky making Ukraine a Lord of the Rings monarchy, this report concludes, is Chairman Thomas H. Lipscomb at the Center for the Digital Future at USC Annenberg think tank, who, in his just released open letter “The Crucial Next 6 Months in Ukraine — What Comes After?”, observes and warns:
There is no doubt now that Russia will defeat Ukraine and impose its terms.
As Putin said a few weeks ago, it was his mistake to think he could trust the West to come to a reasonable agreement and he had no real choice but military defeat of its Ukrainian puppet.
His shrewd foreign minister Lavrov pointed out that there was no point in discussions with the current American government. They have no understanding of war and even less of diplomacy.
But how will the United States respond to its dawning understanding that the years of US/NATO planning the Ukrainian Proxy War Angela Merkel recently revealed have not led to the collapse of Russian power and the overthrow of Putin, but the destruction and partition of Ukraine and the exposure of the American and NATO military challenge as vastly inferior to its reputation? This was a fear Biden actually exposed in his White House meeting during the Zelensky visit before Christmas.
By its total control of media the US/NATO could keep its populations learning of this catastrophe to Western power and pretensions for a considerable time. But the international effects will take place immediately.
American military planning was once world class. But who would plan a proxy war against Russia, one of the acknowledged masters of artillery with far better air defense technology than any in the West, and then equip our puppet Ukraine with inferior weapons and only enough ammunition to last six months? And surely American planners couldn’t help knowing that there was no longer a manufacturing base for resupply, and NATO warehouses were practically empty?
Rhett Butler contemptuously reminded Southern secession hot heads “There’s not a cannon factory in the whole South”. Things are not much better in the United States today. It is a worn truism for centuries that logistics are the key to battlefield dominance. Did our current military planners somehow miss that?
America is now scouring its junk pile for obsolete weapons that can never arrive in time anyway to bulk up Pentagon Ukrainian military aid lists along with manufacturing contracts for future supplies that are irrelevant and the Ukraine is digging steam locomotives out of museums to run on what is left of its rail system.
But the United States current leadership is a bunch of total idiots, blinded by ideology, arrogance and illusions of pursuing a “rule-based” global hegemony, an opportunity long passed, as our performance in this proxy war shows.
The United States may have won the Cold War but it lost the peace. Its strategic thinking and its military is obsolete and configuration of both forces and equipment is based on assumptions from the past millennium.
The battle for a Great Global Reset under a unipolar American hegemony has been lost as well. The World Economic Forum is now about as relevant as the Holy Roman Empire. All they can continue to do is terrorize the increasingly authoritarian states of the West with asinine policy proposals.
The attempt to destroy Russia prodded it to a burst of brilliant diplomacy and leadership by Putin and his team that has quietly established that the rest of the world prefers sovereignty and a multi-polar world.
The post Cold War “Pox Americana” as Larry Johnson has called it, is over. Historians of the future will study this period of history with fascination. Few times in history has such immense change happened so fast.
But how will the idiots in Washington react?
Will they resort to some attempt to implement Petraeus’ “coalition of the willing” fabricated from some NATO troops and some of our own? Petraeus so far has had two significant ideas in his life: As a cadet he married his boss’s, the Superintendent of West Point’s, daughter, and choosing to desert his CIA men dying in Benghazi to avoid embarrassment of Obama and Hillary Clinton. Will a desperate US/NATO fabricate some cause and actually physically intervene to try to prevent the inevitable defeat of Ukraine?
There is a possible important tell and it comes from Putin’s tactics in the Donbas. Why, if a great offensive to take the Donbas and breakout is about to begin, would the Russians be intensely fortifying the line they already hold? Could it be after the absurd Parthian shot pinpricks the CIA has been inflicting within Russia itself, the Russians have decided the US/NATO are just out of control enough to try a tactical nuke as well as a NATO force attack?
The next six months are likely to be the most hair-raising we have seen yet.
