Announcing yesterday: “Belarus has joined the club of nuclear powers”, says along with Russian ally Belarus preparing itself for World War III against the socialist Western colonial powers, top State Duma political leader Aleksey Zhuravlev assessed: “We have ways to respond to any encroachments by the United States and NATO, which it controls…Moscow should consider deploying its own nuclear weapons closer to the US and send them to friendly countries like Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua…However, Russian hypersonic missiles launched from our territory would reach the US faster than subsonic ones launched from the American underbelly”.
Late last evening, this report notes, former Ukrainian lawmaker Borislav Bereza ignited a furor after posting the message: “My sources from the President’s Office have informed me that Zaluzhny has been dismissed from the post of Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces…I sincerely hope that this information is not confirmed…However, a second source has already confirmed it”—a message followed this morning by the Kiev Post revealing: “The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense has denied reports that Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Gen. Valery Zaluzhny, has been fired…The social media rumor mill went into overdrive on Monday evening after several prominent politicians and journalists suggested Zaluzhny was about to be dismissed…In a post on Telegram, the Ministry of Defense said: “Dear journalists, we immediately answer everyone: No, it’s not true”…The President’s Office has also denied the reports”.
Accelerating the Ukrainian crisis between corrupt puppet leader President Vladimir Zelensky and his top military commander General Zaluzhny, this report continues, was the revelation: “Ukrainian authorities uncovered a corrupt arms procurement deal worth nearly €36.4 million, the Ukrainian security service announced late Saturday…Former and current “high-ranking officials” in Kyiv’s defense ministry were involved in the plot, dating to 2022, to steal funds meant for procuring 100,000 mortar rounds, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) said in a statement”—Breitbart News then revealed: “The $130 billion sent to Ukraine so far for its war against Russia is apparently not actually going to Ukraine, but is really “benefiting American interests,” a spokesperson for Ukraine told Breitbart News”—the “American interests” benefiting from the needless bloodshed in Ukraine apparently don’t include its major defense companies, as the Wall Street Journal just revealed: “The Pentagon wants to develop advanced weapons systems to counter emerging overseas threats…Many defense contractors are avoiding projects that could turn into money-losers…The industry’s discontent has been brewing for months and reached a crescendo this past week when Northrop Grumman said it would take a charge of $1.2 billion building the first batches of the new B-21 Raider”—all of which followed the leftist Washington Post, in its article “Ukraine’s Hopes For Victory Over Russia Are Slipping Away”, assessing: “In the near term, both the shortfalls on Ukraine’s front lines and divisions in Washington may cement the fate of the war”.
With every sane person knowing that Ukraine is a defeated and fast collapsing nation, this report details, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov observed: “The West is beginning to understand that the Ukraine project is failing but can not stop assisting Kiev because of its economic benefit and fear of losing prestige”—an observation joined by top Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov assessing: “Zelensky is in a tough position…He has stopped receiving money, there are not enough shells for him abroad, he is also facing a tense situation inside the country, and many people are dissatisfied…In order to cloak his positions, he resorts to disguising them with utterly ludicrous decrees…It is unlikely that this can help the Kiev regime in any way, so the difficulties will only mount…This is despite the fact that there certainly are still more or less bright minds who understand what needs to be done to get out of this situation”.
First among the sane Americans knowing the folly of war, this report notes, is President Donald Trump, who yesterday was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his historic Abraham Accords that achieved peace in the Middle East—a peace now shattered by Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden, and whose election fight against President Trump caused famed American commentator Clay Travis to assess: “I think ultimately what Democrats are going to try to do is disguise from the fact that 75% of Americans — that’s Democrats, Republicans, independent, White, Black, Asian, Hispanic – 75% of Americans don’t think that Biden has the mental or physical fitness to be president of the United States…And so attacking Trump for anything ultimately takes away from the question that is being asked, does Joe Biden deserve another four years of president of the United States?…Has he done a good job on the border?…Has he done a good job on crime?…Has he done a good job on inflation?…Do you feel in your own trips to the grocery store that you are paying substantially more and have less in your pocket than you did before he became president?…And all of these things, not to mention war in Ukraine and war in the Middle East right now, the deaths, unfortunately and tragically, that we just saw of three soldiers as a result of what’s going on in the Middle East”.
While watching a clip of demented warmonger Socialist Leader Biden yesterday, this report continues, radical socialist MSNBC news host Joy Reid was caught on a hot mic exclaiming: ”Starting another fucking war!”, quickly after which she apologized—an apology no one expects from warmongering neocon Republican Party presidential candidate Nikki Haley, who demanded the “take out” of foreign leaders behind the drone strike in Jordan that killed three American soldiers and insanely proclaimed: “It’s not starting war, it’s actually preventing war”—and was an Orwellian proclamation joined by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg likewise insanely proclaiming: “More weapons and ammunition to Kiev is the path to peace”.
At the opposite spectrum from these “War is Peace…Freedom is Slavery…Ignorance is Strength” insane Orwellian proclamations, this report continues, are the American military and intelligence experts at the Moon Of Alabama organization, who, in their just released document “War On The Middle East – The Time Of Monsters”, warningly assessed:
Yesterday 3 U.S. troops were killed and 34 wounded due to an attack that allegedly hit on a place known as Tower 22.
This is part of the Al Tanf area where U.S. troops illegally occupy parts of Syria to control the traffic on the main road between Iraq and Syria.
The reporting so far does not answer many arising questions.
Tower 22 is on the Jordanian side of the boarder but Jordan insists that no attack had happened on its grounds.
Another anomaly are the high rate of wounded from the alleged drone strike. Drones are used in mass in the Ukraine war but the casualties they cause are usually less than a handful per drone.
The highly automated short and medium range air-defenses (C-RAMs, the equivalent of naval Phalanx guns) at the base should be able to shoot down any drone. Why didn’t they work?
The U.S. has also used Al Tanf base and the Rukban camp to house and train ISIS splinter groups so they are able to attack perceived U.S. enemies. Were any of those folks around?
The U.S. claims that an Iraqi resistance group, allegedly supported by Iran, is responsible for the strike. There are several such groups allied with Iran in Syria and Iraq. Which one of them did this? Does the U.S. know this at all?
Iran denies any involvement in the attack.
The attack is certainly an escalation over previous ones. President Biden has said that he will respond to it.
The U.S. immediate response to the hit was the activation of long range tanker planes: At least 6 U.S. Air Force KC-135 Aerial-Refueling Tankers, most from March Air Reserve Base in Southern California, are heading Northeast across the United States and preparing to Transit the Atlantic towards the U.K. and Europe.
Aerial-refueling tankers are used to keep fighter jets in the air for several hours. The reasons to keep jets in the air may not necessarily be to attack someone, but to prevent them from being destroyed by an attack on ones own airports.
The U.S. has plenty of bases in the Middle East which house a lot of expensive jets.
If the U.S. suspects that those bases will come under attack it will need lots of air-tanker capability to save the jets currently stationed on them.
One could conclude from this that the U.S. will attack a target so important that it has to prepare for an all out response attack on its own Middle East bases.
With a “Time of Monsters” fast arriving for Socialist Leader Biden, this report details, it comes right after the powerful American think tank Heritage Foundation, which has guided foreign policy for the Republican Party since President Ronald Reagan, released its damning document “2024 Index Of U.S. Military Strength”, whose Executive Summary warns: “As currently postured, the U.S. military is at significant risk of not being able to defend America’s vital national interests…This is the inevitable result of years of prolonged deployments, underfunding, poorly defined priorities, wildly shifting security policies, exceedingly poor discipline in program execution, and a profound lack of seriousness across the national security establishment even as threats to U.S. interests have surged…In 2023, this has been compounded by the cost of U.S. support for Ukraine’s defense against Russia’s assault, which is further exacerbated by the limited willingness of allies in Europe to shoulder a greater share of the burden…The war has laid bare the limited inventories of equipment, munitions, and supplies of all supporting countries as well as the limitations of the industrial base that will be required to replenish them”—and is warning well known to the peoples of Norway, whose most popular comedic viral video today depicts a Norwegian military officer outlining their new defense strategy of “GHUHTC” if invaded by Russia, which means: “God helps us, here they come”.
While the Norwegian peoples find solace in dark humor while awaiting the “Time of Monsters”, this report notes, the American peoples were just slammed by the Politico article “The News Business Really Is Cratering”, wherein it fearfully observed: “The state of the industry is more dire than ever…Nearly everywhere you look — the Washington Post, NPR, Vice, Vox, NBC News, Texas Tribune, WNYC, Barstool Sports, just to name a few — companies have axed huge swathes of staff…Newsroom employment is down more than 26 percent since 2008…Buzzfeed News is dead…The magazine business has atrophied, too, as newsstand revenues have fallen from $6.8 billion in 2006 to $1 billion in 2022…Looking on as the media business bleeds out, journalism professor Jeff Jarvis, a man who once evangelized for the industry’s electronic future, folded his hands in his lap like a mortician and asked in his blog if it was time to give up on old news…Citing the dark layoff news, Jarvis tidied the corpse-in-the-making…Trust in journalism has melted, he noted, and private equity shops like Alden Global Capital are cannibalizing their newspapers…Isn’t there any optimism out there?…Certainly not from Harvard’s Nieman Reports, which published Katherine Reynolds Lewis’ obituary in October titled “Hey Journalists, Nobody Is Coming to Save Us””.
Still not comprehended by the vast majority of the American peoples, this report concludes, is that their now “cratering” leftist mainstream news business has nothing to do with truth and facts, as it’s sole purpose is brainwashing, which is why the late CIA Director William Casey most factually declared: “We’ll know when our disinformation campaign is complete when everything the American people believes is false”—and on 20 October 1977, it saw world-renowned Washington Post investigative journalist Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame turning to Rolling Stone Magazine to publish his beyond chilling article “The CIA And The Media” his own newspaper refused to publish, wherein he warningly revealed:
In 1953, Joseph Alsop, then one of America’s leading syndicated columnists, went to the Philippines to cover an election. He did not go because he was asked to do so by his syndicate. He did not go because he was asked to do so by the newspapers that printed his column. He went at the request of the CIA.
Alsop is one of more than 400 American journalists who in the past twenty‑five years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency, according to documents on file at CIA headquarters.
The history of the CIA’s involvement with the American press continues to be shrouded by an official policy of obfuscation and deception for the following principal reasons:
■ The use of journalists has been among the most productive means of intelligence‑gathering employed by the CIA. Although the Agency has cut back sharply on the use of reporters since 1973 primarily as a result of pressure from the media, some journalist‑operatives are still posted abroad.
■ Further investigation into the matter, CIA officials say, would inevitably reveal a series of embarrassing relationships in the 1950s and 1960s with some of the most powerful organizations and individuals in American journalism.
Among the executives who lent their cooperation to the Agency were Williarn Paley of the Columbia Broadcasting System, Henry Luce of Tirne Inc., Arthur Hays Sulzberger of the New York Times, Barry Bingham Sr. of the LouisviIle Courier‑Journal, and James Copley of the Copley News Service. Other organizations which cooperated with the CIA include the American Broadcasting Company, the National Broadcasting Company, the Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps‑Howard, Newsweek magazine, the Mutual Broadcasting System, the Miami Herald and the old Saturday Evening Post and New York Herald‑Tribune.
By far the most valuable of these associations, according to CIA officials, have been with the New York Times, CBS and Time Inc.
During the 1976 investigation of the CIA by the Senate Intelligence Committee, chaired by Senator Frank Church, the dimensions of the Agency’s involvement with the press became apparent to several members of the panel, as well as to two or three investigators on the staff.
But top officials of the CIA, including former directors William Colby and George Bush, persuaded the committee to restrict its inquiry into the matter and to deliberately misrepresent the actual scope of the activities in its final report.
The multivolurne report contains nine pages in which the use of journalists is discussed in deliberately vague and sometimes misleading terms. It makes no mention of the actual number of journalists who undertook covert tasks for the CIA. Nor does it adequately describe the role played by newspaper and broadcast executives in cooperating with the Agency.
