DJ, The Ukraine war is costing "the west" over 1 billion per day...Not only in weapons-and transport but also keeping a puppet-regime in Ukraine and all of Ukraine "functioning"....Yes-Russia also has lots of costs...but their "war-industry" is state owned...able to deliver "good/better" weapons at much lower costs then the west can do...Also for Russia the war is close to its borders...much less transport costs...

Ukraine may see maybe up to 1,000 deaths per day...each day...For Russia keeping people alive goes above control over land. So they pull back and let artillery/missiles "do the killing"...still Russian deaths also will be in the dozens per day...

It is "the west" that does not want to talk of peace..."going for victory"...Western victory is NOT only Crimea back to Ukraine...(historically it was Russian...Chrutsjew made a mistake some 65 years ago...). Regime change in Moscow is the western goal...

From only humanitarian aid the west now is close to sending F16's...UK already sending depleted uranium ammo and missiles (costs 2,2 million € each=600 missiles 1,3 billion €) with a range of 300 kilometres...

Ukraine has to join NATO and EU...if you ask why you are "pro-Putin"...This is total insanity...

Public support for most western governments is dropping as fast as inflation is increasing...so "politics" now going for "info wars" to stop "false info"...and of course "politics knows best"..."Die partei hat immer recht"...a DDR-song-former East Germany under stalinist rule..."the party is always right"...

Less healthcare, further destruction of the climate all for "victory"...regime change in Moscow...

This is sick...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

The NATO expansion war costs; [url]https://nltimes.nl/2023/05/16/dutch-economy-contracts-07-percent-first-quarter-despite-slight-eu-growth[/url] or https://nltimes.nl/2023/05/16/dutch-economy-contracts-07-percent-first-quarter-despite-slight-eu-growth ; Gross domestic product in the Netherlands fell by 0.7 percent in the first quarter of 2023 compared to the previous quarter. The contraction took place despite 0.3 percent GDP growth in the European Union as a whole. Statistics Netherlands (CBS) largely attributed the contraction to a fall in the trade balance and an increase in the use of natural gas held in reserves.

DJ, Energy prices in "the west" are expected to be "problematic" coming winter...further pushing up inflation...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/head-ukraines-supreme-court-arrested-large-scale-corruption[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/head-ukraines-supreme-court-arrested-large-scale-corruption

Yet another large-scale corruption scandal has come out of Ukraine as the country's National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) and the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO) have announced significant action taken against the highest court in the land. 

"NABU and SAP have exposed large-scale corruption in the Supreme Court, in particular a scheme to obtain undue advantages by the leadership and judges of the Supreme Court," the anti-corruption bodies announced on their official social media channels Tuesday. It's a huge embarrassment given this is the highest legal body in the land, and the nation's top judge, responsible for interpreting and upholding the law.


DJ Western foreign "policy" is bribes and bombs...In Ukraine the west is sending -by now- TRILLIONS !!! to corrupt criminals and nazi's...(part of that money may return to "politicians" in the west...). 

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/russia-says-it-took-out-us-supplied-patriot-missile-unit-hypersonic-strike-kiev[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/russia-says-it-took-out-us-supplied-patriot-missile-unit-hypersonic-strike-kiev

Russia's military may have taken out a US-supplied Patriot anti-air battery in Ukraine, which if true would be a very significant first since the advanced Raytheon-made defense weapon was deployed there.

This came as Ukrainian officials have cited an exceptionally dense attack on Kyiv overnight, which included cruise missiles and drones, and even allegedly Kinzhal hypersonic missiles. Ukraine was hit by at least 18 missiles and nine drones were sent, with media reports saying some six ballistic missiles (including Kinzhal) were launched. But the Ukrainians are claiming that most or all of them were intercepted.

Pinned Tweet







I counted 30 Patriot PAC-3 MSE launches here. The FY2024 costs of these per missile is about $$5,275,000 That was $158,250,000 fired in about two minutes. And as we see, the battery or something else likely got blown up. So it failed in its mission.

DJ [url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/05/ukraine-air-defense-lessons-.html[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/05/ukraine-air-defense-lessons-.html ;

The casualty numbers in today's clobber report by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation may be a bit exaggerated but the general operational facts are usually true:

The Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation launched a combined attack with long-range precision-guided air- and sea-based weapons against the AFU units, as well as depots of ammunition, weapons and military equipment supplied by Western countries.

The goal of the attack has been reached. All the assigned targets have been neutralised.

U.S.-manufactured Patriot surface-to-air missile system has been struck by Kinnzhal hypersonic glide vehicle in Kiev.
...
Fighter Aviation of Russian Aerospace Forces have shot down Su-24 and Su-25 aircraft of Ukrainian Air Force near Varvarovka and Krasnoarmeysk (Donetsk People's Republic).

Air defence forces intercepted seven Storm Shadow long-range cruise missiles, three HARM anti-radar missiles and seven HIMARS multiple-launch rocket system projectiles.

Air defence facilities have shot down 22 unmanned aerial vehicles close to Ivanovka and Yevgenovka (Donetsk People's Republic), Topolyovka (Lugansk People's Republic), Inzhenernoye, Blagoveshchenka (Zaporpzhye region), and Krynki (Kherson region).

Ukraine does not have an integrated air defense that can attack all air targets at all levels. Russia though has such an integrated system of systems. It makes for a huge difference.

Updated - 16:30 UTC:

U.S. confirms hit on Patriot system:

Alex Marquardt @MarquardtA - 16:23 UTC · May 16, 2023

A Patriot system was likely damaged but not destroyed by a Russian missile barrage Monday night, a US official tells @NatashaBertrand. US is still assessing the damage which to determine whether the system needs to be pulled back entirely or be repaired by the Ukrainians.

even worse...[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/now-france-announces-supplying-long-range-missiles-to-ukraine[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/now-france-announces-supplying-long-range-missiles-to-ukraine a.o. military summary mentions Russia shooting down Ukraine planes needed to launch UK/France "medium range" missiles...

[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/radiation-from-ukraine-reaches-lublin-poland[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/radiation-from-ukraine-reaches-lublin-poland ;

Radiation and poisonous Uranian Dust has reached Lublin, Poland, from the ammunition dump hit in Ukraine last Friday.  In that Ammo dump was about $500 Million of Depleted Uranium tank shells supplied to Ukraine by Britain.  Now, the radiation and the poisonous dust, has reached Lublin Poland.

Levels of radioactivity shown on the graph above, were measured at the Maria Curie Skłodowska University in Lublin (Poland). This indicates that dust from the uranium ammunition was blown by the wind from Khmelnitsky to Lublin.

2 days, 400 km away . . .

Those who were outdoors and breathes the poisonous, radioactive, dust, are highly likely to suffer serious respiratory illness, and later, lung cancer.   Now that the dust has arrived, and some of it presumably settled on the ground, rain will carry it into ground water, where it will quietly POISON the water for decades.

Women who drink the water, especially while pregnant, will likely miscarry (lose) the baby, or see it born with hideous birth defects.

All this because NATO couldn't mind its own business, and stay out of the Ukraine-Russia fight.  NONE of this had to be.

DJ, some of that radiation, via wind or water may even reach Germany...of course "media/governments" go 100% denial....

Again this biden NATO expansion war is costing "the west" over a billion €/$ per day...very likely indirect costs included may go 10 billion per day ? 

[url]https://southfront.org/ukraine-aid-funding-expected-to-run-out-by-mid-summer/[/url] or https://southfront.org/ukraine-aid-funding-expected-to-run-out-by-mid-summer/ ;

Originally published in AntiWar

The last massive aid package Congress authorized for Ukraine has about $6 billion left, which is expected to be used up by mid-summer, POLITICO reported Monday.

So far, the US has authorized about $113 billion in spending on the war in Ukraine, which includes military aid, direct budgetary aid, training, funding for US troop deployments in Eastern Europe, and other types of assistance.

Once the final $6 billion dries up, the Pentagon won’t be able to ship more weapons to Ukraine. That means the White House is expected to ask Congress to authorize more spending on the war soon.

A senior Biden administration official told POLITICO that the White House is discussing a new package and is going to time it so the weapons can keep flowing to Ukraine. The official said the administration is “fully committed” to supporting Kyiv in the war “for the long haul.”

DJ, the "rest" of the world...90% of global population (NATO-west is 10% ) - may have decided to "de-fund" the west...since talking with the present western "leaders" is pointless...

-

[url]https://www.debka.com/gaza-ceasefire-faces-first-test-with-annual-jerusalem-day-flag-parade/[/url] or https://www.debka.com/gaza-ceasefire-faces-first-test-with-annual-jerusalem-day-flag-parade/ countries like Israel, Türkiye maybe even Japan try to balance between US "pressure" and national interests...

What are present risks ?

-Nuclear...Ukraine could "blow up" a nuclear plant and blame Russia for it...(blaming MH17-flight being shot down on Russia worked in western propaganda...very likely Ukraine shot down that plane in 2016-killing 298 civilians-with the plan to blame Russia/separatists for it...)...so "false flag"...US/NATO fully willing to work with that...

-Major attacks on Russia..so Russia/BRIICSS+ has to "answer" -a scenario that already is showing up west seizing/sinking Iran tankers...in return Iran taking over/attacking western tankers...Energy logistics is now even more at risk then a few years back...US blew up Nordstream...so EU/UK needs more energy from Norway, US, even coal...

-In Pakistan protests against the (US planned) arrest of Imran Khan (bribed away by a US regime change) get that big the Pakistan army (with some elite still pro US/UK) had to release Khan...Lots of countries face increase of unrest...

-Of course the CoViD pandemic is NOT over, climate disasters (fires, flooding) are a "new normal"...even further destroying economies...countries CAN collapse...There are limits to US debts...

So outlook only getting worse as long as biden/US refuses to go for peace/talks...The only way out is regime change in DC...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, Getting a picture of the present NATO-BRIICSS+ conflict may be just as complex as getting a picture of the present global ongoing healthcrises...

⚔🇷🇺🇺🇦 Update on Russian Kinzhal Strike in Kiev, Ukraine ▪️Russian MoD claims recent Kinzhal strike destroyed one Patriot radar system & several launchers; ▪️This would in theory disable one entire battery; ▪️Ukraine reportedly only has 2 Patriot batteries;

and 

[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/ukraine-launches-100-drone-attack-into-russia-4-explosions-at-helicopter-factory[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/ukraine-launches-100-drone-attack-into-russia-4-explosions-at-helicopter-factory ;

The Ukraine NAZI government launched air attacks with over 100 drones into Russia today.  Most of the Drones were defeated by Russian Electronic Warfare, but several did get through as seen on video below.  At least one drone hit a Helicopter Factory in Lyubertsy, Russia, outside of Moscow.

reaction from Russia; [url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/live-updates-heavy-russian-retaliation-attack-happening-now[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/live-updates-heavy-russian-retaliation-attack-happening-now is further destruction of NATO storage, command centers, Ukraine logistics etc...

UPDATE 6:11 PM EDT --

Ukraine says , "Our reaction on this , will be very very hard... and unexpected...

DJ, Ukraine tried to sell its industry/mines to foreign (US) investors...Chevron etc. willing to invest if governments insure the investments...Rheinmetall-German tanks-also willing to open a plant in Ukraine...

The Duran/TD [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzqKgVUO9N8[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzqKgVUO9N8 on zelensky now back in Kiev...

...in short...Ukraine is destroyed....In a few minutes in Kiev Ukraine used 30 patriots air defense missiles-all failed...The US production of patriots is 250 per year...for all of the US client-states...Sending over 100 drones to Moscow...how many drones does Ukraine still have ? 

TD also questioning zelensky his health...is he rather in Europe for safety then in Ukraine ? 

Also TD conclusion; like johnson did in 1968 in Vietnam, biden now may push for escalation...DJ-my view-in the hope "NATO beats BRIICSS+"

The Ukraine power elite, oligarchs, may even see trump as "left wing"...Not all in that elite are nazi...But nationalists may not welcome a growing influence of Poland...

A possible outcome could be Ukraine becoming a "neutral failed state" with most Ukrainians living outside Ukraine...

-Next year november will bring US elections...could see biden against trump...At least trump is willing to end this insane, criminal, Ukraine war...Maybe even willing to send biden and his "cult" to an international court...?  The Ukraine war is related to a "US sick political system"...

The US "POTUS" is also the "top leader" of NATO...may have pushed other countries into this conflict with BRIICSS+....

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/uptick-russian-military-flights-near-alaska-us-leads-massive-drills[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/uptick-russian-military-flights-near-alaska-us-leads-massive-drills 

Escalation could see western logistics being disrupted...EU now getting a lot of energy via sea...(Nordstream pipelines blown up on orders of biden...). We had oil/gas in storage...a mild winter in most places means we still have some energy reserves remaining...but not enough for winter...

So;

-In Ukraine the zelensky puppet regime may be close to collapse...

-In the US  only the biden-cult may be pushing for further war against Russia, Iran, China

-Europe is running out of weapons to send...may be willing to train pilots for F16's...

-Western economy is decreasing fast...US, Italy a.o. massive debts...

-BRIICSS+ economy is growing...

-US$ in global economy is collapsing...

(BRIICSS+ = Brazil-Russia-India-Iran-China-South Africa-Saudi Arabia the + stands for Argentina, Nigeria, Indonesia etc. that may also join BRIICSS)

Yes...the "west" can try to create more money...maybe western countries among each other could still claim fiat-currencies have some value...but for trade with non-western partners western currency "at best" means high prices, more realistic non-western partners want to use their own currency...Rather do deals with non-western partners they trust...

Again; the west is isolated...Again; the west needs the rest much harder than the rest needs the west...Asia can do bussinesses with Africa, Latin America..

------------

Major escalation; "All or nothing" could see NATO forces attacking Russia...China, Iran a.o. will react...by now NATO may no longer have an army strong enough so nuclear war would be the option...But where to hit if the basic conflict is the rest of the world ? 

Again...this scenario could have been avoided...NATO does NOT need Ukraine, Georgia (etc).....it is not worth destroying the planet...

Climate disasters, pandemics may destroy the planet anyway...so we should be dealing with that...

-------

NATO and nazi's both have their evil roots in a military-industrial-complex with banks, energy also factors...An economic elite (with "royals" also involved...major shareholders) trying to stay "on the top"....

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

In Japan-Hiroshima the G7 meet...a.o. Brazil also will send a representative...

In Riyad-KSA Kingdom of Saudi Arabia the Arab League -with Syria back again- will meet...

The US is planning to send 500 million US$ worth of military hardware to Taiwan...even under US rules part of China...

Bakhmut has -as good as- fallen...this may start a new NATO offensive against BRIICSS+...because in fact this is a NATO-west-BRIICSS+ rest war...

The African Union and China are talking with Ukraine on an end of the (US made) war

DJ...no doubt Russia and China may be on a daily contact. Russia-India, Russia-Iran, Pakistan-China, India-Iran contacts very likely also on a very high level...

Are we seeing preparations for change ? 

-It could be BRIICSS+ trying to avoid further escalation...eventough they have given up any trust in "the west"...they may want to avoid World War Three....

-Some neo-cons/neo-liberals still push for more war...

-Since NATO is running out of weapons for conventional war further major escalation may be "non conventional"...

DJ, the Vatican, Israel a.o. may try to "limit war"...for Israel Russia limited Iran in Syria...The US may be the main Israel sponsor...but the US did lose all diplomacy -as good as- in the region...

For "the west" part of the talks may be on doing more with less energy, reshaping "global trade" ...with the west getting excluded...the US$ "in crisis"...

[url]https://southfront.org/prospects-for-peace-in-ukraine/[/url] or https://southfront.org/prospects-for-peace-in-ukraine/ ;

In February of this year, China presented its 12-point peace plan, which Russian President Putin assessed as a possible basis for a diplomatic resolution. In April, for the first time since the beginning of hostilities, Xi Jinping held telephone talks with Ukrainian President Zelensky. Soon, the former Chinese ambassador to Russia, Li Hui, was appointed chief commissioner for Ukraine, and in May he launched a difficult round of negotiations with all parties to the conflict, including NATO member states.

On May 17, he held talks with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine in Kiev.

In the coming days, the China’s special representative will reportedly visit Russia, Poland, France and Germany. After Kiev, he will go to Brussels.

At the moment, any results are too early to be predicted, but it is obvious that Beijing has every chance to become the main mediator for peace between Kiev and Moscow, sooner or later.

South Africa also claims this role. The Presidents of Egypt, Zambia, Congo, Senegal and Uganda are involved in the development of the African Peace Initiative initiated by South African President Ramaphosa.

The visits of the African delegation to Moscow and Kiev are planned in early June. During the peace mission, the heads of six states will travel between the capitals of Russia and Ukraine.

In his turn, Pope Francis has repeatedly expressed his readiness to become a guarantor of peace in Ukraine, but he clearly does not take a neutral position in the conflict. The pontiff asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to “stop this spiral of violence and death,” and Zelensky to “be open to serious proposals for peace.”

In early May, Francis announced that the Vatican was taking part in the work on a secret peacekeeping mission.

To date, Russia has not received any proposals from the Vatican on a peaceful settlement in Ukraine.

During his visit to Rome on May 13, Zelensky claimed that Kiev does not need intermediaries in negotiations with Moscow, because the dialogue should be based on his “peace formula’, which is out of touch of reality on the battlefield and was rejected by Moscow.

Any fruitful peace process seems to be still a little foreseeable. However, the efforts of Turkey and the UN continue to support the points of contact between Moscow and Kiev.

On May 17, the grain deal was extended for two months. Moscow again made concessions, still hoping that the misbalance in the deal would be eliminated.

DJ, on his visit to the Pope zelensky managed to insult the vatican...A painting of Mary with her child left open-representing Ukraine as missing in the "holy" west did not go well...There are limits for mixing religion with propaganda...Also more and more people are fed up with "slava ukraine" as a new "sieg heil/heil hitler" by Ukraine nazi's/nationalists...

Misuse of weapons (a patriot air defense missile is 5 million $ each...so wasting 30 patriots in Kiev = 150 million by concentrating patriots in one-urban-space -with the US only producing 250 patriots per year-also is "unwise and unwelcome"...

Widespread corruption -as always- with weapondeals...a lot of "help" ending up with criminals/black market is eroding a will "to help" Ukraine in its self destruction...

So...DJ-what if there is "peace" in both the Middle East and Ukraine ? Not because the west want peace but Russia-China/BRIICSS+ stop wars ? 

The bad news is a western political "elite" want the "west" to rule the planet at ALL cost...even if that would destroy this planet...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/us-preparing-ukraine-war-become-frozen-conflict[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/us-preparing-ukraine-war-become-frozen-conflict ;

Authored by Dave DeCamp via AntiWar.com,

The Biden administration is preparing for the war in Ukraine to turn into a frozen conflict for years or possibly even decades, similar to the situation on the Korean peninsula, POLITICO reported on Thursday.

US officials have been discussing the possibility, including potential options for where to draw the lines for a frozen conflict that either side would agree not to cross. The report said the idea of freezing the fighting could be a “politically palatable long-term result.”

DJ, Of course this "freezing" of the US made war in Ukraine has nothing to do with realism..."politics" does not like reality...

The basic conflict is between NATO-west and BRIICSS+-rest of the world...10% "rich white" people telling the "less rich - less white" people what to do...

"Freedom" means not that much when you are kept poor...so "rich whites" claim to have a "right" to travel around the globe...But "non whites" are not welcome in "the white west"....We accept thoesends of them dying trying to reach Europe, UK, US...We have a "right" to make "them" pay for "our" problems...climate disasters, wars, pandemics hit the poor while the rich get richer...

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0vl4jxm27A[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0vl4jxm27A L'hymne des femmes;

We who are without a past, the women
We who have no history
Since the dawn of time, women
We are the Dark Continent.

Chorus :
Let's rise slave women
And let's break our shackles
Stand up, stand up, stand up!

Enslaved, humiliated, women
Bought, sold, raped
In all the houses, the women
Out of the world relegated.

Alone in our misfortune, the women
Each other ignored
They divided us women
And of our separated sisters.

The time of anger, women
Our time has come
Let's know our strength, women
Let's discover thousands!

Let's recognize ourselves, women
Let's talk, let's see,
Together we are oppressed women
Together, let's revolt!

Last chorus:
Let's rise slave women
And enjoy without hindrance
Stand up, stand up, stand up

DJ, Of course women decide on their bodies in having children or not...Of course YOU decide on having a vaccine or not ! Of course !!!! One should be able to decide on ending of your life when illness or age only results in misery...Collective psychosis called "religion" created inequality, racism...accepting gross injustice...

Pandemics, wars, are the outcome of "choices"...No one has a right to kill ! We have to stop wars before wars stop us !

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

And of course Ukraine is paying the highest price for now...hundreds of thousends killed in a biden-made war "pushing NATO further east"...

Then, a few hours later, the Israeli Prime Minister informed the Egyptian and Qatari negotiators of his willingness to cease hostilities and assassinations in Gaza in accordance with Islamic Jihad’s demands. The Israeli decision led to a de-escalation.

DJ, Israel starting to realize it needs to talk not fight...because Israel neighbours are getting stronger, US is getting weaker...

[url]https://southfront.org/radioactive-cloud-from-ukraine-heading-to-western-europe-secretary-of-russian-security-council/[/url] or https://southfront.org/radioactive-cloud-from-ukraine-heading-to-western-europe-secretary-of-russian-security-council/ UK depleted uranium D.U. was blown up by Russia in western Ukraine-before it could be used;Washington put pressure on its satellites and assured the supply of ammunition with depleted uranium to the war-torn country. Patrushev warned that the supply of this ammunition could turn into a catastrophe for Europe comparable to the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

DJ, so now some radiation levels going up in Poland...may go even further west...(may even reach the UK where it came from !) 

Also F16's with "Ukraine/NATO" pilots above Ukraine will/can not change much in the fighting...may not survive longer then Mig-29's from the same era..."old"...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

[url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/05/bakhmut-has-fallen-artyomovsk-has-been-liberated-.html[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/05/bakhmut-has-fallen-artyomovsk-has-been-liberated-.html ;

Why the Ukrainian leadership had decided to hold onto the city even months after the situation there was already in its disfavor is beyond me. The fight was decided by the numerical superiority of Russian artillery fire and the Ukraine had never a chance to top that.

The losses there for the Ukrainians amounted to 300 to 500 men per day over that last 5 months. That sums up to a total of 60,000 casualties. Ten days ago Ukrainian units, including the fascist Azov brigade, rolled up the Russian flanks north and south of Bakhmut to allow the Ukrainian troops in the city to flee west. That attack alone, only one or 2 kilometer deep, cost them some 1,600+ men and some 50+ armored vehicles.

On the Russian side the fighting in the city was largely done by Wagner troops. But they were never able to do it on their own. Russian military intelligence, artillery and logistics all played an important role in the fight.

The city has been destroyed but it will continued to exist as it is an important logistical hub with several rail and road connections running through it.

Mariupol, which fell/was liberated a year ago, is already being rebuild. In a month or two, when the frontline has moved away from Artyomovsk, rebuilding will start there too.

DJ...the Bakhmut/Artyomovsk bloodbath has ended...the criminal behind it is still in the white house...NATO again showing itself as a north atlantic terrorist organization...supporting neo-nazi's, fascists, IS, alquaida etc. all "in the name of democrazy"...Double standards...Iraq-war was "good" NATO expansionism stopped by BRIICSS+ is "bad"...

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uw3eirJYOo[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uw3eirJYOo The Duran...to "stop Russian agression" while it is NATO-nazism moving east-the "west" now may stop importing Russian energy via India/other countries...also some basic essentials will face a boycott from "the west"....

So the west worsened its economic outlook even further...Increased de-dollar-ization...Can it get more insane ? YES !!! Great !!!

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TxsVw5XWDs[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TxsVw5XWDs Cyrus Janssen (no doubt NL-US) on China government now investing more in Bio-Tech, Chips etc...Chip-makers going for "de-Amiracanization"as an outcome of US insanity on China...

Big Tech facing a US choice...deal with the US market of 335 million...most poor...Or China 1400 million/Asian market over 4 billion consumers...Korean companies in part have production/assembly in China...Even US companies "de-Americanize" because BRIICSS+ is the future NOT the US-empire

DJ...[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/political/you-are-not-alone-anger-building-across-world[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/political/you-are-not-alone-anger-building-across-world ;

Authored by Bruce Wilds via Advancing Time blog,

You are not alone if you are tired of watching your government grow increasingly oppressive and corrupt. Many people across the world share your pain. People continue to voice their anger and discontent, however, this is something the media often chooses not to report for it is owned by those same forces which are attempting to enslave us. Those on the left referred to the right as fascist or Nazi while those on the right refer to the left as communist.

The truth is that the angst and growing anger many people feel is kept under control by a mass media with a very strong agenda. Mass media has perfected the art of dividing us and at the same time keeping us in the dark. The greatest risk we face may be that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is coming at us fast and furious. Once it is here getting information will become almost impossible.  

The Duran tried to explain why "western leaders" are in this tunnel vision of insanity...A different opinion is end of a career...vonderleyen-now doing a disaster for the EU may do her terrible job "leading/destroying" NATO...Here in NL we have mark rutte-neo liberal destroying anything "public"...maybe he can destroy public healthcare, housing, education, transport in all of the EU...

DJ-Trade Unions and some other groups could bring change...Also major companies (Volkswagen, BMW, BASF, Volvo, Airbus etc.) may move to BRIICSS+...

However the major risk is in/from the US...The US nuclear arsenal could be used to blackmail "the rest"...UK, France also have "nukes"...Israel may go for "Russian/Chinese protection"...When Israel "started" in 1948 the Soviet Union-stalin- was the first to recognize it...

The Arab world, Islamic world is moving high speed away from the west...

DJ-The collapse of the west has already started...may go exponential...a downward spiral...Again the "west needs the rest" much more then the "rest needs the west" ...BRIICSS+ can deal with OPEC+/SCO...more or less same group of young nations tired of being kept poor...

For now "the west" is missing real leadership...

Maybe the UK is a good example...Lots of former UK colonies were willing to accept Elisabeth as a queen...Most of them may now look for an elected head of state..."kings and queens" are nice in fairy tales ...Royals with way to much money/power do not mix with democracy...A lot of "royal money"  ended up with fascists, nazi's...oil/car-industry..

DJ-We may see the "end" of the UK within 5 years ? A reunited Ireland, Scotland (moving its borders to the south ?) joining a reforming EU...so the UK then is England & Wales ? Still trying to answer the Brexit-question...? 

(I think the EU needs reform...the EU has to "work" for European citizens better...The Euro/€ for ALL EU-states in 2003 (was it) may have been to early...The EU failed a.o. in Cyprus...so now only "Greek" part of Cyprus is EU member...Some claim Cyprus-south of Türkiye-close to Lebanon- should be seen as part of Asia...not even part of Europe...) 

Keeping Türkiye out of the EU was "short sighted"...the hurry to include eastern Europe "unwise"...The EU should not push for including Ukraine...IF Ukraine would join the EU-stay out of NATO-it should be part of a plan for reconstruction...Both Ukraine and Türkiye could be a bridge for Eur-Asian trade...

The EU (and UK) need to BREAK !!! with the US if the US is unable to go for real diplomacy...We are already living in a multi-polar world...The US still trying to be the #1 -dominating the planet-is unwelcome insanity !

-So...How long will the Ukraine-biden-NATO expansion war go on ? There are "stories" Ukraine top generals were killed by Russian missiles...zelensky now trying to be outside Ukraine most of the time...Most of the world does see this war as US/NATO against BRIICSS+ 

Some scenario's;

-Ukraine collapsing...a new government in Kiev decides to end the war...trying to go for "limiting damage" with the help of "non-western" partners...

DJ-Ukraine could have seen maybe up to 400,000 soldiers killed...NATO pumping in weapons...only limited soldiers (most Polish) only results in Ukraine total destruction...So "western help" is NOT helping Ukraine...it is destroying it...

-Syria was already a "war to much"  for the west...Pakistan, Phillippines even Egypt once were US allies...now even Türkiye, Saudi Arabia, UAE etc. break with the US...US elections...biden or trump...may even be to much for Europe...DJ-I think Germany and France hoped Minsk-talks could limit the Ukraine war...the US sabotaged "Minsk"...the US-trump-blew up the Iran-deal...biden blew up Nordstream (EU-Russia energy link)

-DJ I think economic warfare...outcome of sanction, US$ as a weapon, SWIFT/stealing money by the west from Venezuela, Afghanistan, Iran, Russia...now has BRIICSS+ de-dollar-ization going high speed...NATO soon may be both out of "real" money and resources...Both unable to pay for wars and produce weapons for wars...If the west only makes agreements to break them then the rest has to break the west....

-US nuclear blackmail only may have some effect if the US can limit the number of enemies...At present the US is moving towards conflict with most of the world...even the EU...Hypersonic weapons (and other new weapons, "high energy", electronic warfare) may "undo" the US the ability to use its nuclear weapons...DJ-I hope the US will see democracy restored...can "finish" the present corrupt political elite...For that matter the "west" needs real democracy not the "fake democrazy" -self destruction we have now...

So...can we get out of "global changes" without "humans ending themselves" in all out war? I hope so ! But we need change now !

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFzrhT7bOSU[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFzrhT7bOSU On China high speed railnetwork...a comment;

I live here in China for 10+ years now and take trains all the time (took one from Shenyang to Beijing on Sunday. It took 3 hours, 800km cost me equivalent of $30, 1st class too) . The train network is phenomenal , fast (always around 350km/hr), clean, smooth , on time. In the south the scenery is amazing,  tunnel after tunnel, traversing huge valleys etc   US spend $2rn on wars in middle east. Imagine all that money spend on infrastructure

DJ, China is investing in higher speed trains (over 500 miles per hour possibly -MagLev) for main routes (Bejing-Shanghai) in China itself and may go for connections inside BRIICSS+ ...

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3O_LRwRn1w[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3O_LRwRn1w Danny Haiphong;Former British MP and host of MOATS George Galloway joined me to discuss the G7 Summit and how it reflects the changing reality globally of BRICS, led by Russia and China, rising above a declining Western empire.

also The Duran [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfeHIGbYsPw[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfeHIGbYsPw Russia exporting energy to India for Rupees now has Russia with lots of India currency...Russia and India further increasing trade...So far main trade partner for India was China..DJ;.India is also involved in Iran energy projects...China working on links from China to the Indian Ocean (via Pakistan, Laos/Myanmar/Thailand) and high speed freight transport to a.o. the EU...

DJ-For me the question is not "if" but "when" the EU will join BRIICSS+....in some form...

-----------------

So far the US is sabotaging global trade because the US "needs to be #1"....Even most Americans by now may be sick of an old corrupt political elite...The Duran [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBp37R1MRhg[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBp37R1MRhg on criminal cases involving biden-family, trump...In polls trump may beat biden if that would be the next US presidential election november 24...IF we see a repeat of biden/trump...the rest of the world may have had it with the US....

The corrupt western elite wants to push trillions more in more wars...destroying the public sector, getting some war criminals/industry very rich...

DJ-"The west" does neither have the finance (fiat currency) or the basic materials (energy, raw materials) to go for more war...The present "elite" will be replaced soon...however they did very major damage...The sooner western wars stop the better...the longer this insanity goes on the higher the price...

As the Duran noticed; Russia wanted to work with/be part of the "west" (DJ-just like Türkiye did)..."western sanctions" pushed Russia towards trading with non-western countries outside the US$...The outcome now is BRIICSS+ is booming...

[url]https://tvbrics.com/en/news/south-africa-to-host-xv-brics-summit-in-2023-in-person-format/[/url] or https://tvbrics.com/en/news/south-africa-to-host-xv-brics-summit-in-2023-in-person-format/ ;Cyril Ramaphosa invited the leaders of the BRICS association to come to South Africa to participate in the summit of the alliance. Anil Sooklal, Deputy Director-General responsible for Asia and the Middle East, Department of International Relations and Cooperation, told eNCA TV channel about this.

He said that the summit meeting for the first time in three years will be held in-person format in August 2023 and stressed that South Africa, as the BRICS chair, has planned 117 events.

DJ see also [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BRICS#Membership_expansion_proposals[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BRICS#Membership_expansion_proposals ;

Countries that have applied for membership[edit]

In addition, Afghanistan,[79] BangladeshBelarusKazakhstan,[80] MexicoNicaragua,[80] NigeriaPakistanSenegal,[80] SudanSyriaThailand,[80] TunisiaTurkeyUruguayVenezuela, and Zimbabwe have expressed interest in membership of BRICS.[86][87][88][89][90]

as far as I know Iran is in the process of becoming a full BRICS-member. The UAE, Bahrain and (many) others (Angola, Mozambique, Cuba) may be on a waitinglist...June 2 and 3 there is another (lower level) meeting of BRICS in South Africa...

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanghai_Cooperation_Organisation#Membership[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanghai_Cooperation_Organisation#Membership 

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurasian_Economic_Union#Membership[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurasian_Economic_Union#Membership ...

maybe even [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OPEC#OPEC+[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OPEC#OPEC+ all integrate in BRICS+ so maybe a new name and plan may be needed/usefull ?

"Global Cooperation Organization" or something like that ? 

Some points;

-BRICS/new name is the future but on what-when ? With what speed ?

-Going for one major global currency or a mix of currencies ? A global trade-digital-currency next to "local/national" currencies ?

-How to avoid some countries become to dominant (in their region)...Russia, Iran may try to get India stronger to get a better balance with China...Brazil needs to balance with other Latin American countries (Argentina, Mexico)

-What to do with countries like Japan, EU/EU members, Canada (?) maybe willing to increase trade without joining BRICS ? 

-How can "BRICS+" increase peace and cooperation ? Korea, Ukraine...

-How to limit war with the US ? DJ-I do not doubt "BRICS+" wants to work even with the US...the problem is in "the west"....

----------

Maybe of note; The trajectory of BRICS+ will mean most energy, pharma, food production will be in BRICS+ members...Already BRICS now has a larger economy (per 2022) the the G7...Soon BRICS+ will be larger then the G20...

Western actions are destroying the west...So...will BRICS+ send aid to the US when their political elite only is pushing for war ? 

DJ-The US wants to "break up" Russia...however the outcome may be a breaking up of the UK (Ireland united, Scotland joining the EU) and the US...

If the US sinks into a civil war what role other countries should play ? Should Alaska become part of Canada ? Mexico move its borders north ? Texas, California become countries ? 

The present western "strategy" is creating these kinds of questions...(with western propaganda still claiming "Ukraine is winning"...please !)

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

In the pandemic vaccines are supposed to be the "miracle weapon"...get vaccinated and the pandemic is over...A "pseudo-religion" ignoring reality...Vaccines may have saved maybe millions of lives in the short term...on the longer term they increased immunity evasion...So "virus mutation selection process" reacting to immunity...(both immunity after infection and/or vaccination). Anti-virals do bring the same kind of immunity evasion selections...So-yes-vaccines, anti-virals, can do a job...but it is a limited short term job when you deal with very flexible viruses...

On top of that co-infections (bacterial, fungal) seem to be part of the problem killing infected hosts...Non Pharma Interventions; limiting spread, masks, ventilation, should be the "main weapon"...NOT (non-sterilizing !) vaccines....

But we did invest billions into vaccines...so the story is "vaccines did the job ending the pandemic"...Untrue..we soon will learn...

To link this vaccine/pandemic story with the "US war against the world"; BRICS/BRIICSS+ has both most Big Pharma and the basics for pharma products...India, China, South Africa, Brazil have a very majot pharma sector...

The Duran [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXoi_2sfAFQ[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXoi_2sfAFQ on why the western, war-industry-owned mainstream media, is even in denial on the fall of Bakhmut...They did promote/lie that much the story Ukraine is winning that when-again-Ukraine losses a major battle it does not fit their claims...

So after "miracle weapons" like Leopard-2/Challenger-tanks, HIMARS, Patriot-air defense...all failing in Ukraine...now F16's "will beat Russia/Putin"...[url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/05/ukraine-open-thread-2023-123.html[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/05/ukraine-open-thread-2023-123.html ;

 In late October a Ukrainian Sukhoi-27 Flanker, Soviet-era fighter, was shot down by a long-range air-to-air missile (LRAAM) – the R-37M. This is not the first Ukrainian aircraft to be shot down since Russia’s invasion commenced in February, but it is nevertheless a significant feat for the Russian Air Force because the R-37M took down the Ukrainian Sukhoi-27 from a range of 217km (about 140 miles). This would make the kill the longest on record. The R-37M is a hypersonic long-range air-to-air missile (LRAAM) reportedly capable of reaching Mach 6 and striking targets up to 400km (250 miles) away.

 The R-37M has become virtually unmatched, with few potential rivals.Furthermore, it is reported that the R-37M was fired from Russia’s fifth-generation fighter the Sukhoi-57 Felon rather than the Mikoyan MiG-31 Foxhound, Russia’s primary interceptor. The possibility of a fifth-generation Felon executing a target from such a long range is not at all impossible; the Sukhoi-57 has a sophisticated actively electronic scanned arrays (AESA) radar system comprising of the solid state AN/APG-77 – with a range of at least 200km (125 miles); and the N036 Byelka radar which boasts a maximum range just under 400km (250 miles). <

DJ...Ukraine runways are not long/good enough for the (over 50 y/o in design) F16's...So will those F16's start their-very likely one way-trip from Poland ? Romania ? With "Ukraine"NATO-pilots ? (US has been training Ukraine pilots for over a year...however Romania has a big problem in switching from Soviet Era fighters to US ones...fresh, new, pilots may learn how to fight US made fighters...older pilots can not "un-learn" basic instincts linked to Soviet era fighters...). 

Starting from an airfield for a war mission pulls the country into a conflict...For that matter NATO allready is very involved in the Ukraine war...NATO-drones, EW-planes, flying over the Black Sea directing drones to Russian targets (a.o. in Crimea) is involving NATO countries in this war...

China is now the most dominant player in the EV space controlling the one piece of tech that will define the future of our world Electric Batteries. Can the world make an EV battery without China? The answer is no! Let's break down everything you need to know about China tech and how you can also take advantage of an opportunity in the market.

Like in Big Pharma the west is NOT in control over basic raw materials...worse; The US does not even make batteries for Electric Vehicles...With OPEC+ now also moving towards BRIICSS+ "the west" is running out of basic essentials for any sort of economy...De-dollar-ization only makes matters worse...

To end with some "hope"...by now MOST of the west know they have to get out of this conflict...

POLITICOEurope

·
“If Ukraine finds that the time has come" for peace talks with Russia, Denmark would be willing to host them in July, Danish FM Lars Løkke Rasmussen said. The meeting would need engagement from “countries like India, Brazil and China,” he added. https://bit.ly/3Ovv5LK

and 

#Russia has lost any trust in the West in general. If the war should stop, it will be with the BRICS countries' guarantee & the UN's supervision. The West remains untrustworthy, but this will be accepted and considered the West's most significant defeat.

DJ, Only a very limited group of western (powerfull) hard-liners/idiots want further escalation...Very likely work is on its way for an exit-strategy...

-biden wants to go for re-election in the US...(that is a very major problem in itself...)

-alternative for the exit strategy is all out war...with major nuclear risks...

-Some in the US see China-NOT Russia-as the main problem...

-The EU would totally destroy itself if it would join the US in a conflict with China...

-UK has not even found an answer to Brexit...has a "king" no sane person wants...(nothing personal, Charles himself may be OK as a fellow human...but the idea of a "king" as head of state apointed by a "god" does not fit in the 21st century...)

--------

So we live in interesting times....Reality is power is shifting to Asia away from "the west"....The "west" was the major global power for the last 500 years...So maybe fear is a big motor behind the conflict ? Reality also is "a lot of things" all ready no longer under western control...from energy to cars, computers etc. So it is a next step in an ongoing process...

DJ-BRICS/BRIICSS+ effectiveness could be indicated by a.o. [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazzaville%E2%80%93Kinshasa_Bridge[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazzaville%E2%80%93Kinshasa_Bridge ;

The Brazzaville–Kinshasa Bridge is a proposed road-rail bridge construction project over the Congo River that will connect the Republic of the Congo to the Democratic Republic of the Congo at their respective capitals, Brazzaville and Kinshasa. The project has proceeded intermittently, but work is slated to begin in 2023 and be completed in 2028.

Background[edit]

The cities of Brazzaville and Kinshasa, capitals of the Republic of the Congo (ROC) and Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) respectively, are situated on opposite banks of the Congo River. They are the closest national capitals on Earth (excluding the Vatican since the city-state has no capital).[1][2] Plans for a bridge crossing the Congo River to connect the two countries were financed in 1991 but shelved in 1993 due to a lack of sufficient funding and turmoil in the ROC.[2]

The project was revived a decade later in 2003 by the ROC's Transport Infrastructure Unit (Cellule d’infrastructures de transport), which had previously cooperated with the European Union on similar projects in Central Africa.[2] The proposed bridge was relocated downstream to take advantage of the narrower and rocky riverbed which would facilitate easier erection of bridge pierrs. The cost of construction was estimated to be between 40 million and 80 million euros in 2003.[2] In January 2004, the project was endorsed by the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), which by then was estimated to cost 403 million euros.[3]

The project stalled in 2005 when DRC presidential chief of staff Léonard She Okitundu expressed that the project would adversely affect economic activity in its port towns of Boma and Matadi, which are key contributors to its economy. The DRC refused to endorse the bridge project without a commitment by the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) to finance a deepwater port in Banana, its only city on the Atlantic coast. Okitundu also confirmed that sanctions by the African Union meant the DRC had been excluded from negotiations with NEPAD regarding the projects.[4] A 2010 report by the World Bank stated that the proposed bridge would instead increase maritime traffic to Pointe-Noire, ROC's main port city on the Atlantic.[5]

Following a study in 2009, the project laid dormant until a meeting was held in Libreville, Gabon in December 2016 between the two countries. In January 2017, the ECCAS reactivated the project, with the African Development Bank pledging 250 million euros to the project.[6] The two Congos were to raise the remaining 110 million euros and seek donors for an additional 40 million euros.[6] An agreement was formally signed in November 2018 between the ROC and DRC for a 1,575m-long toll bridge to connect their capitals.[7]

Construction works have since been repeatedly delayed with works now expected to commence in 2023.[6][8][9] The bridge is expected to be completed in 2028.[9]

So one of the problems is in what effect it may have on ports of the Republic of Congo-Brazaville or Democratic Republic of Congo-Kinshassa...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banana,_Democratic_Republic_of_the_Congo[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banana,_Democratic_Republic_of_the_Congo

Banana is a small seaport in the Kongo Central province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo on the Atlantic coast. The port is situated in Banana Creek, an inlet about 1 km wide on the north bank of the Congo River's mouth, separated from the ocean by a spit of land 3 km long and 100 to 400 m wide. The port is located on the creek side of the spit, which shelters it from the ocean. It is about 8 km south-east of Muanda to which it is connected by a paved road running along the coast.

DJ, in the past lots of countries were very interested in Africa...less in Africans...Afrcan countries need to balance between "foreign investors" and national interests...

The loss of the city of Bakhmut was a major blow to the Kiev regime which is still denying its defeat. Two days after the Ukrainian military retreated from their “fortress”, Kiev attempted a large provocation on the Russian border aimed at gaining headlines in the MSM in order to hide the truth from Bakhmut.

On May 22, since 9 am local time, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) began the heavy shelling on the border villages in the Russian Belgorod region. It lasted for several hours and resulted in damage to civilian infrastructure. The main target was the Grayvoronsky region located north of the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv.

-

Around noon, after several hours of heavy shelling, a fierce battle was reported near the village of Dronovka, where a group of Ukrainian militants crossed the border. Military equipment has been brought in from both sides, and several drones have been spotted in the sky. Russian air defense forces were still active and Russian aircraft were patrolling the area. Russian Mi-28, Mi-8 and Ka-52 have been spotted in the border area.

A group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which included notorious neo-Nazis from the so-called “Russian Volunteer Corps”, the “Legion of Freedom of Russia”, as well as members of the Ukrainian Nazi battalions Azov and Kraken, in armored vehicles, supported by a tank and an infantry fighting vehicle, attacked the Grayvoron border checkpoint in the Belgorod region. In total, up to two tanks, one APC and nine armored vehicles, including T-72, 2 HMMWV, Cougar and KrAZ entered the territory of Russia near the Grayvoron checkpoint.

Ukrainian militants managed to advance to the Kozinka — Glotovo intersection, and from there, Ukrainia servicemen reached the Glotovsky House of Culture by foot. In total, they managed to move several hundred meters deep into the territory of the Russian Federation.

-

According to preliminary reports, the Ukrainian military pushed away from the Russian territory in several hours. However, the local officials are yet to confirm these reports. The security operation likely continues.

The attack of the Ukrainian military is nothing but another PR campaign, similar to the offensive on the Russian Bryansk region on March 2, 2023. LINKLINKLINK Today’s assault was carried out by the same Nazi forces of the so-called “Russian Volunteer Corps”, who declare that their attacks on civilians in the small border villages the liberation of Russia. Actually, the “Russian Volunteer Corps” and the “Legion of Freedom of Russia”, which mainly include Nazis who fled Russia years ago, were created by British advisers and ar aimed to sow discord among the Russian population and terrorise the population in the border regions. The sabotage attacks and acts of terrorism on the Russian territory are also largely coordinated by British special services. LINK

Today, the Kiev regime is trying its best to hide its defeat in Bakhmut. The offensive in the Ukrainian media was much larger than the one on the battlefield.

Immediately after the beginning of the operation, Ukrainian sources spread numerous videos showing the military equipment in woods, allegedly heading towards Russia. It turned out that some of them were filmed in the Ukrainian Sumy region and have nothing to do with offensive.

-

The Russian authorities are yet to confirm any losses and the authenticity of the video is yet to be confirmed. The speech of the Ukrainian operator raises doubts and sound more like a speech prepared in advance than a comment made during the battle. Taking into account that Kiev forces filmed numerous fake videos when preparing for the offensive, this one was highly likely staged.

At the same time, the Kiev regime launched a propaganda campaign in the Russian Belgorod region. Ukrainian forces reportedly disrupted the local radio station and attempted to sow panic among the local population, calling on the civilians to evacuate from the settlements. People were also called to evacuate by Ukrainian bogus callers. The local authorities were forced to deny the numerous rumours about the evacuation several times amid the massive information attack. Ukrainian saboteurs also dropped leaflets calling on the Russian military to surrender.

The Ukrainian attack in the Belgorod region has no military goal. However, it is strategically important to create a necessary image in the media. As it was the case in March, Ukrainian Nazis shelled the villages, crossed the border, fired at the local civilians, sowing panic, took some photos and fled away. This is another fake victory of the Kiev regime. Zelensky has always been exchanging lives of his soldiers and officers for likes on the social media.

From the military point of view, the attack may be used as a distracting blow amid the upcoming counteroffensive of the Ukrainian military on the Donbass front lines, which was declared by the Kiev regime months ago.

DJ, timing is not only after the fall of Bakhmut but also after the return of zelensky from the G7 meeting in Hiroshima-Japan. 

Did the US/UK plan this attack ? Is the "NATO strategy" to bring the war into Russia ????

There have been lots of murders, drone attacks, sabotage but only limited (pro)Ukraine military moving into Russia. Attacking logistics/supplies for the war in Ukraine inside Russia may be seen as "legal"...murdering citizens is terrorism...

Western pro-war media also claimed Russia still had nuclear weapons near the Ukraine border...was evacuating them in a hurry...Russian sources claim-very likely correct-Russia moved away that kind of weapons at the start of the SMO february 2022...

DJ-On the G7-Hiroshima/Japan meeting;

biden (still supposed to be POTUS) did skip a meeting with Modi India president...

zelensky did not show up for a meeting with Lula Brazil president...

Authored by Pepe Escobar,

Let’s start with a graphic depiction of where the Global North and the Global South really stand.

1. Xian, former imperial capital, and key hub of the Ancient Silk Roads: Xi Jinping hosts the China-Central Asia summit, attended by all Heartland “stans” (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgzystan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan).

The final statement stresses economic cooperation and “a resolute stand” against Hegemon-concocted color revolutions. That expands what the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) are already implementing. In practice, the summit seals that the Russia-China strategic partnership will be protecting the Heartland.

2. Kazan: the Russia-Islamic World forum unites not only religious leaders but top businessmen of no less than 85 nations.

Multipolar Russia proceeded in parallel to the Arab League Summit in Jeddah, which welcomed back Syria to the “Arab family”. Arab nations unanimously pledged to end “foreign interference” for good.

3. Hiroshima: the ever-shrinking G7, actually G9 (adding two unelected EU bureaucrats).

Imposes a single agenda of more sanctions on Russia; more weapons to black void Ukraine; and more lecturing of China.

4. Lisbon: the annual Bilderberg meeting – a NATO/Atlanticist fest – takes place in a not so secret hotel completely locked down. Top item in the agenda; war – hybrid and otherwise – on the “RICs” in BRICS (Russia, India, China).

-

In the photo ops, by the way, it’s not a shrinking G7 that shows up: but a warmongering G9, artificially augmented by that pathetic couple of unelected EUrocrats, Charles Michel and Pustula von der Lugen.

As far as the real Global Majority – or Global South – is concerned, this looks more like a G-Less Than Zero. The more the senseless, illegal Sanctions Wars are “expanded”, the more the absolute majority of the Global South moves away from the collective West, diplomatically, geopolitically and geoeconomically.

And that’s why the top Bilderberg agenda at the hijacked Lisbon hotel was to revamp NATO/Atlanticist coordination in a war – hybrid and otherwise – against the driving force in BRICS; the RICs (Russia, India, China).

There were other items on the menu – from AI to the acute banking crisis, from “energy transition” to “fiscal challenges”, not to mention proverbial “U.S. leadership”.

But when you get in the same room people like NATO’s Stoltenberg; director of U.S. intel Avril Haines; senior director for Strategic Planning at the National Security Council Thomas Wright; Goldman Sachs president John Waldron; Chief Gardener Borrell (whose minion was in Ibiza); vice chair of Brookfield Asset Management, Mark Carney (one of their executives also in Ibiza); Supreme Allied Commander Europe, Christopher Cavoli; and Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland, among other Atlanticist shills, the plot is self-evident:

It’s war on the multipolar world.

DJ-the G7 in itself allready is very divided...Japan still involved in Russian-Sachalin oil, China trade...The EU would destroy itself if it would follow the US in seeking also war with China...for now the EU is "limiting" itself...Eur-Asian trade is to important...

Another point "visitor nations" wanted to discuss on the G7 was India, Brazil taking over the position of UK, france in the UNSC as permanent members...no doubt "the west" is not willing to face realism here as well...

1982 SPECIAL REPORT: "THE CIA/NAZI CONNECTION"

“Honest and idealist … enjoys good food and wine … unprejudiced mind …” That’s how a 1952 Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) assessment described Nazi ideologue Emil Augsburg, an officer at the infamous Wannsee Institute, the SS think tank involved in planning the Final Solution. Augsburg’s SS unit performed “special duties,” a euphemism for exterminating Jews and other “undesirables” during the Second World War. Although he was wanted in Poland for war crimes, Augsburg managed to ingratiate himself with the U.S. CIA, which employed him in the late 1940s as an expert on Soviet affairs. Recently released CIA records indicate that Augsburg was among a rogue’s gallery of Nazi war criminals recruited by U.S. intelligence agencies shortly after Germany surrendered to the Allies. Pried loose by Congress, which passed the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act three years ago, a long-hidden trove of once-classified CIA documents confirms one of the worst-kept secrets of the cold war–the CIA’s use of an extensive Nazi spy network to wage a clandestine campaign against the Soviet Union.

DJ...ALL !!! of the nazi-Belarus government criminals (over 300) did find safety in the US...The "west" also did get many nazi's to the Middle East, South America...

The NATO-nazi links go further then thatcher/reagan standing next to fascist mass murderer pinochet...

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Condor[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Condor

Operation Condor (Spanish: Operación Cóndor, also known as Plan Cóndor; Portuguese: Operação Condor) was a United States-backed campaign of political repression and state terrorism[10] involving intelligence operations, CIA-backed coup d'états, as well as assassinations of left-wing socialist leaders in Latin and South America from 1968 to 1989.[11][12] Highly publicized events such as the assassination of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara by CIA-backed Bolivian forces in October 1967 have been perceived as catalysts that predated the operation. Operation Condor was officially and formally implemented in November 1975 by the right-wing dictatorships of the Southern Cone of South America.[13]

Due to its clandestine nature, the precise number of deaths directly attributable to Operation Condor is highly disputed. Some estimates are that at least 60,000 deaths can be attributed to Condor,[8] with up to 30,000 of these in Argentina.[14][15] The Archives of Terror list 50,000 killed, 30,000 disappeared and 400,000 imprisoned.[9][16]

DJ, the west financed hitler's rise to power...Most of the nazi-war machine was financed by the west (a.o. henry ford, the bush -banker/oil-family...also lots of "royals" seeking revenge for the murder of the Czar-family member of most "royals"...Lots of "royals" also had shares in Russian railways, oil...lost their investments in the revolution...). 

So Western/NATO-NAZI links is NOT new...may in fact go back to the Russian revolution....the "west" supported the "whites" against "reds/bolsheviks"...Some Russians still dream of a new czar...At present in Ukraine also "Belarus opposition forces" are fighting for NATO...(also IS-jihadists/terrorists "pro-NATO")...

-Most fascists are catholic...however most Catholics are NOT fascists !!!! NATO has nazi-links, may share the same Military Industrial Complex/Finance "roots" -this does not mean (yet) NATO countries are nazi-countries....However there are real dangers for democracy...

In recent Greek elections only 60% of the voters showed up...the "left" and "right" wing parties looked that similar there was no real choice...In the US the "uni-party" may be the main political factor...DJ-Here in NL we still have a lot of freedom...partly may explain why we have about 15 political parties in parliament...Still lots of Dutch do NOT feel represented...

-In NL parliament the "Holland" west part of NL is over-represented...(to the extreme...) so regional issues...Studies indicate most government spending ends up in the "Randstad"...however 5 million of the 18 million Dutch live there...

-A lot of members of parliament are (close to ) university educated...Most Dutch are not...

-Complex rules create poverty and problems for millions of Dutch...however "politicians" are not confronted with their own (social) laws...

DJ-Also in lots of EU/western countries there are the same sort of problems...Only the US and UK have a (in practice) "two party system"...

Complex problems may not be solved by "simple solutions" but "kicking cans down the road" -ping pong problems from national governments to the EU-or to the regions undermines trust in politics...

DJ-In "polls" it is still claimed most Dutch back the "royals"...I doubt those polls are realistic...Support for the Ukraine war, EU, NATO may be less then "polls" suggest...in many countries. 

Worsening of the MANY crises may increase risks of a government out of touch with its country...the US, UK may be close to that point...If police is unable to enter parts of cities because of gangs/crime ...how far are you from a failed state ? France, NL may be moving in that direction as well...Secret services mixing with organized crime may be needed for some operations...but a long term mix of intel with crime has very major risks !

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, Like in may updates...official reality and real world are two different planets...

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2q072qE5WNY[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2q072qE5WNY The Duran on biden his "historic geopolitical mistake"; 

In short...if your main competitor is China why then start/escalate a conflict with Russia ? 

The US now is facing Russia-China economic "boom"...with lots of countries willing to go for the BRIICSS+ idea...The alternative was push zelensky for talks with Russia, avoid a war in Ukraine-try to improve relations with Russia so you can focus on "beating China"...Under trump the US destroyed the Iran-deal, went for "blind pro-Israel" politics...pushing even Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia away...

Spinning a story of Russia being a vassal of China-following Bejing orders may be projecting the EU following US orders...at least till now-against Russia. Russia does NOT need to do deals with China...also has good relations with India, Indonesia, Iran...But Putin and Xi now are also becoming good friends...

In Xian China had a meeting with Central Asian heads of state...Even Turkmenistan now on board of BRICS/BRIICSS+...

[url]https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202305/1291329.shtml[/url] or https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202305/1291329.shtml ;

On the afternoon of May 24, Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin, who was on an official visit to China, at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Mishustin also held talks with Chinese Premier Li Qiang on the same day. China and Russia signed a series of bilateral agreements on service trade cooperation, sports, patents, and Russian millet exports to China, which shows significant results of Mishustin's first visit to China since taking office as Russian Prime Minister. The increase in quality of China-Russia economic and trade cooperation, coupled with a full tank of oil, will drive them toward a farther and broader future.

The size and level of the Russian team and the number of entrepreneurs accompanying Mishustin is rare in recent years. The visit mainly aimed at implementing cooperation projects and further expanding economic cooperation. In March this year, President Xi made a successful state visit to Russia and outlined the blueprint for the development of China-Russia relations and cooperation in various fields with President Vladimir Putin. This visit by Mishustin to China is promoting the implementation of the blueprint, and with the joint efforts of both China and Russia, it will become a roadmap and construction plan, and eventually be built into a beautiful reality. As a result, China-Russia economic revitalization will receive a continuous and strong impetus, and more people from both countries will feel and enjoy the tangible benefits brought by mutually beneficial cooperation.

DJ, This translates to further investing in infrastructure linking Europe to the Pacific...Further BRIICSS+ defense cooperation-avoiding US-made regime changes...

------------------

In "the west" some still keep pushing for escalation...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Wallace_(politician)[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Wallace_(politician) UM minister of war claims 97% of Russian Army is fighting in Ukraine...based on "crazy intel"...so "Ukraine should attack inside Russia"

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96Y8on1ZL1c[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96Y8on1ZL1c Military Summary/MS yesterday mentiond Russia now protecting Turkstream energy link to Türkiye...after Ukraine boat-drones got active. 

Belarus signed a treaty with Russia on stationing nuclear weapons in Belarus. 

DJ-I think Ukraine "russian" attacks inside Russia is MORE then just distraction from the fall of Bakhmut...it may be part of the G7 -Hiroshima meeting between zelenski and biden/sunak. 

The idea very likely is to "bring the war inside Russia" and decrease "meat grinding" ground war in the east of Ukraine. In Bakhmut Ukraine may have seen 50,000 soldiers killed and another 50,000 wounded...(most of them unable to fight further). Russia may have seen "1/3" of Ukraine deaths in Bakhmut-so this still would translate to 15,000-20,000 Russian deaths...

One of the reasons for lower Russian deaths, more wounded getting back to the front is better available medical care. Russia was able to get wounded out of the fighting high speed...Ukraine often may not have been able to even reach their wounded...worsening the outcome. 

-Is the US/NATO strategy to first beat Russia then go for China ? If so-losing the war with Russia may need to be avoided at "all costs" for some western "leaders"...again this means high risk of very serious escalation. From false flag cyber/nuclear attacks to terrorism...NATO then blames (again) Russia (or China, Iran). 

BRIICSS+ increasing trade in their own currency has as a by-product de-dollar-ization going high speed. Of course BRIICSS+-banks then also decrease investments in "the west" that is moving into depression...DJ-We have to make certain energy deliveries NOW to have energy reserves over 6-8 months...And we may not be doing that...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfN9Mhd-dEc[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfN9Mhd-dEc Weeb Union/WU on offensives in Ukraine.

DJ, My view;

-Russia is able to destroy any concentration of (pro)Ukraine forces so preventing NATO/Ukraine (so far)  of starting a major offensive

-Ukraine needs better air defense; 

Patriot not mobile...also far from doing its job...limited reach-Russia using missiles, guided bombs, artillery, drones and patriot is not good at dealing with that...simply easy to overwhelm...Patriot shooting down a cheap drone but not stopping the missile behind it doing the destruction job...Ukraine now going for "more passive air defense" also to keep location of air defense hidden untill it is needed. But even then Ukraine is running out of air defense high speed...

F16...with "Ukraine"-NATO pilots...Idea seems to be to use Ukraine air bases with long enough runways...Training pilots does take years...DJ-My view NATO pilot-volunteers may be flying the F16's. However Russian radar will detect both the F16 and the airbase...Russia will destroy both-Russia has the means for it...

DJ, Weather is a major factor. So far rain=mud limited offensive possibilities....However drought/heat may start major wildfires, water shortages...climate collapse could become an increasing complication...

Pandemic risks are far from over. Russia has better medical care. Wounded and ill can get into healthcare much faster then Ukraine wounded/ill...Ukraine also has a long term problem with multi resistent TB...high risks of CoViD, Avian flu...(Ukraine has still mink farms, also major poultry industry...limited testing for H5N1...)

DJ-Russia does -so far- not need an offensive. Ukraine forces storming Russian positions get destroyed..."de-militarization" may have seen 300,000+ Ukraine soldiers killed...Russian losses may be in tens of thousends (faster care=saving lives, long distance fighting=Russia using artillery,drones etc. limited exposure to Ukraine/NATO fighting). 

DJ-again my view; On this basis Ukraine simply has NO chance of winning...It is being used/destroyed for biden/US goals...Ukraine nationalists may move towards that opinion as well...still hate Russians...but accept they have to live with them. Ukrainians may ask the question why "the west" pushed for this war...

Ukraine population by now may be under 20 million...millions of Ukrainians trying to find a safe place outside Ukraine. (Several million live in parts of (former) Ukraine under Russian control) Loss of both economy and humans lives is gigantic...and for what ? biden has a lot to explain !

Membership expansion proposals[edit]

Discussions about the expansion and entry of new member countries were little addressed until the early 2020s, after this date, leaders and top ranking diplomats of the founding nations began discussions for the expansion of the group.[79][80][81]

On 16 March 2023, Russia announced that it supported Algeria's bid to join BRICS.[82]

On 25 April 2023, it was announced that 19 countries had expressed interest in joining BRICS.[83]

Countries that have applied for membership[edit]

In addition, Afghanistan,[79] Bangladesh, Belarus, Kazakhstan,[80] Mexico, Nicaragua,[80] Nigeria, Pakistan, Senegal,[80] Sudan, Syria, Thailand,[80] Tunisia, Turkey, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe have expressed interest in membership of BRICS.[86][87][88][89][90]

DJ, BRICS (Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa) already population of over 3 billion...With 25 countries thinking of joining major parts of Latin America, Asia, Africa and even Europe are "in BRIICSS+"...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/escobar-inside-story-russia-iran-india-connectivity[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/escobar-inside-story-russia-iran-india-connectivity ;

Make no mistake about what the G7’s Hiroshima Communique is all about.

The setting: a city in neo-colony Japan nuclear-bombed 78 years ago by the United States, for which it made no excuses.

The message: the G7, actually G9 (augmented by two unelected Eurocrats) declares war – hybrid and otherwise – against BRICS+, which has 25 nations on its waiting list and counting.

The G7’s key strategic objective is the defeat of Russia, followed by the subjugation of China. For the G7/G9, these – real – powers are the main “global threats” to “freedom and democracy.”

The corollary is that the Global South must toe the line – or else. Call it a remix of the early 2000s “you’re either with us or against us.”

Meanwhile, in the real world – that of productive economies – the dogs of war bark while the New Silk Road caravans keep marching on.

The key New Silk Roads of emerging multipolarity are China’s ambitious, multi-trillion-dollar Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the Russia-Iran-India International North South Transportation Corridor (INSTC). They have evolved in parallel and may sometimes overlap. What is clear is the G7/G9 will go to the ends of the earth to undermine them.

DJ...my view; Lots of companies are much more realistic then the present "political crazies". From South Korea, Japan to even the EU, UK, US "the future" is in global markets...

The more "the west" goes for sanctions and wars the more non-western countries organize themselves to "live" without that west...

[url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/05/why-are-these-top-biden-officials-stepping-down.html[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/05/why-are-these-top-biden-officials-stepping-down.html ;

Recently several administration official who were working on China and Ukraine policies announced to step back or retire. The people in question were not neo-conservative China hawks like Secretary of State Anthony Blinken or National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan. The unexpected loss of top sane hands has me concerned that there is some big move in planning that will damage U.S. relations with China and Russia even more than they already are:

-

I think that all these moves are somewhat related. Wendy Sherman and Colin Kahl have known each other throughout their careers. Both of them cooperate with each other while serving in several Democratic administrations. It is hard to believe that did not talk to each other about stepping down.

But still I find none of the usual background pieces in foreign policy media that connects these moves or would explain the issues involved. Can they find no one who wants to talk about this?

Or is it just me seeing things that ain't there because I fear that the Biden administration is preparing for even more escalatory policies?

DJ...the only way "the west" can "win/beat" Russia-Iran-China is all out nuclear war...but what would the "west" win ? It would stop a multi-polar world...It would prevent BRIICSS+ from becoming dominant...by destroying the planet...

The BIG problem is...confrontation-politics by the "west/US/biden" is a one way street...biden and his "cult" still believe "Ukraine is winning"...even with US allies warning the US the refugee crises as an outcome of US wars is ruining Europe...The economic damage is getting far to big...

DJ-We-in "the west" need to deal with energy, food, medical demand for coming winter NOW !!! We are moving towards worsening inflation if we do not make deals NOW !!!!!

US foreign insanity will DESTROY !!!! the US$...with that the western banking system...

With at the background both climate collapse and pandemics we are in the wrong fight...We are destroying ourselves-STOP IT !

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Donbass Zugzwang | The Calm Before The Storm. Military Summary And Analysis For 2023.05.26

trying to get a balanced view. 

[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/it-s-official-russia-declares-intent-to-make-pre-emptive-nuclear-strike-if-west-goes-ahead-with-ukraine-getting-nuclear-capable-f-16-s[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/it-s-official-russia-declares-intent-to-make-pre-emptive-nuclear-strike-if-west-goes-ahead-with-ukraine-getting-nuclear-capable-f-16-s ;

The possible transfer of nuclear weapons to Ukraine from the West will cause a preemptive strike by Russia, said Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council.

The statement was made during his visit to Vietnam.

Medvedev explained that the allies of Ukraine can put into service not only F-16 fighters, which is no longer excluded, but also nuclear weapons.

As reported by the Hal Turner Radio Show in a Subscribers-Only report on 23 May, debate within NATO over supplying Ukraine with F-16's centers around the United States INISISTENCE the planes be a specially-modified model capable of carrying the U.S.  "B-61" free-fall nuclear bomb.  The U.S. is also insisting that NATO countries train Ukraine pilots on how to utilize such nuclear bombs. 

This has caused a gigantic rift within NATO. The United States, Great Britain, Poland, and Germany are in favor of this idea, while Turkey, Greece, and Hungary are against it.

"If this happens, they must be prepared for a retaliatory strike with a nuclear charge"  said Medvedev.

Medvedev emphasized that if the situation comes to the point that nuclear weapons are being transferred to Ukraine, preventive strike from Russia becomes inevitable.

DJ; My view is countries are "on the move" with their positions;

Poland has a very major refugee crisis with millions of Ukraine refugees for over a year. Ukraine agri-culture export to the EU is bad for Polish farmers. 

In general lots of EU countries wonder what is next; US war with China ? Also the EU needs to deal with energy/food demands for coming winter NOW !!!

The German government could face growing protests just like France already has to deal with..."green movement" is against more coal, nuclear energy...the "green party" is betraying their voters as a pro-war, pro-fossil fuel, pro-nuclear import "club"...

For the US elections november 2024 means decisions have to be made now...biden "needs a victory" or other wise he needs to be able to claim success on other fronts...put losing the Ukraine war in 2023...as "old news" ...and blame Europe...(further worsening relations...)

----------

MS mentioned the Black Sea becoming more of a frontline. This sunday the second round of elections will be held in Türkiye...very likely Erdogan will win. (opposition-coalition, backed by NATO-now very anti refugees in the hope of getting extra votes...Lebanon population now is 25% Syria-refugee...Lots of countries breaking human rights returning refugees over borders...even if that is killing these refugees...)

Türkiye still is a member of NATO...in practice it is moving towards BRIICSS+, making deals with Russia, Iran...there may be a Erdogan-Assad (Syria) meeting organized by Russia (and Iran ?) soon...

Also Hungary, Serbia may be moving away from the "west"...Some claim (the US) Turkstream is at risk...Very likely the US also blew up Nordstream...trying to deny Russia income from selling energy...US export of energy did increase...however price of energy also may increase even harder...The US energy export-for now-  can NOT replace Russian exports..

DJ...my idea of a possible "Ukraine" offensive. [url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/ukraine-army-falling-apart-shooting-the-officers-who-order-them-into-no-win-battle[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/ukraine-army-falling-apart-shooting-the-officers-who-order-them-into-no-win-battle may be real...still limited...Lots of Ukraine soldiers simply do not want to die for nothing....They may be willing to fight if that fight has a use...

So...(again) if there is a major "Ukraine" offensive it most likely will be done with NATO forces in/using NATO weapons...from western tanks to western fighters...

In a military sense even such a NATO offensive may have NO !!! chance....Russia has been using a very defensive strategy...fighting close to its (old) borders...Even if NATO still would claim "not to be a party" in this US provoked war countries like Iran, China will see it as further NATO escalation towards BRIICSS+...

The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEFRussianПетербургский международный экономический форум, ПМЭФ)[1] is an annual Russian business event for the economic sector, which has been held in St. Petersburg since 1997, and under the auspices of the Russian President since 2006.[2] Each year, more than 10,000 people from over 120 different countries take part. The Forum brings together the chief executives of major Russian and international companies, heads of state, political leaders, prime ministers, deputy prime ministers, departmental ministers, and governors.

DJ, both BRICS and NATO will have meetings in June...In August there is a major BRICS meeting in South Africa...may see discussion on new members of BRICS...

The #US would like to test the performance of #Russia's Sukhoi Su-57 Felon on the battlefield, keep the Western alliance of 50 nations involved, prolong the war n #Ukraine,  & exhaust Moscow's patience by humiliating its army. This is why it will deliver dozens of F-16S to #Kyiv.

DJ, the war-industry, killing machines-able to kill more people at lower costs/risks is "booming"...So far the US "killing industry" did make trillions of $ -of course tax funded...But lots of other countries are able to provide killing machines at lower costs...

The US is not able any longer to control not only the global energy market...also "defense/murder-industry" is moving out of US control high speed...

[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/news-nation/speaker-mccarthy-has-left-the-capital-for-the-weekend-no-debt-ceiling-deal[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/news-nation/speaker-mccarthy-has-left-the-capital-for-the-weekend-no-debt-ceiling-deal ;

House lawmakers Thursday evening left the Capitol for the holiday weekend without a deal on the debt ceiling.

Joe Biden waited 97 days to engage in debt ceiling talks with House Speaker McCarthy and other congressional leaders.

The White House is facing a June 1 deadline, but today, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said she thinks they can stgretch that to June 9 before the US Defaults on its debts. 

House Republicans passed a debt ceiling resolution in April but the White House is blaming the looming default on the GOP.

DJ, The US may be at its limits in creating more money/debts...(of course tax funded..the rich get even more rich...)...Since political parties "need donors" "donors" will push for more debts to get even more rich...(Of course this is not "corruption" but "free market"...you pay !!). 

-----------

DJ, Three possible scenario's;

-Western media going for more massive distraction...we may get an overload of news on health, climate...Both very serious major problems we should be solving...The "west" suddenly -since they can not win the wars they started- wants "international cooperation" and more empty words/tax money for rich people NOT solving any problem...

In this scenario-most optimistic-the "west" would realize further escalation is destroying the west...

-Realism is not something western "politicians" like...However escalation of wars has it risks..."Never ending wars" may destroy BRICS/BRIICSS+...So the west continues it support for "freedom"...IS, neo-nazi's, MEK, Baluchi-independence, Kashmir...lots of conflicts to exploit, lots of proxies "dying for the rich"...

The weak spot in this scenario is BRIICSS+ by now knows what "western democrazy" brings; bribes & bombs...Islamic countries work with China because they see the west "supporting Uyghurs" as part of western support for seperatism...breaking up China...NATO has been killing Kurds for decades...most Kurdish people know the west is using them...If there is a better alternative they may go for it...(The Kurds should be on the agenda in Turkish-Syrian-Iraq-Iran talks under Russia/China supervision...DJ-I would welcome "some form of a Kurdish State" in the region...maybe as part of a federation...)

-Both scenario's ignore the war mongering insanity some "western leaders" show...Hate of Russia, racism against Chinese...neo-colonial/pseudo religious emotions...Defending western "superiority", western domination the last 500 years...(resulting in hundreds of millions of "inferior" people getting killed, sold as slaves, exploited) for some "western elite" makes the present crisis a "holy war"....

DJ-Some fanatic western "leaders" I expect may be willing to "defend civilization" even by nuclear war...

BRIICSS+ may be able to "de-fund" NATO...deny it both the finance and basics (energy, raw materials) neede for a long term war...The US did use nuclear weapons -august 45- my view- de facto to "stop the Soviet Union"...(Japan was already in talks of ending the war for months...position of the emperor and his family of war-criminals was one of the points why it did take long...). 

I do not doubt the US, UK may be willing to go nuclear...Even if a small number of western countries (US, UK) may be confronted with "most of the world" against them the US (and UK ??) could try nuclear blackmail...

Electronic/Cyber warfare, hypersonic weapons may limit US possibilities...still the US may be able to launch that many nuclear weapons some of them may hit BRIICSS+ centers ...The US (and UK) may end up as nuclear ruines..Global nuclear winter may kill those who survived the (very short) nuclear war...

End of story...The only way to prevent this scenario is new western leaders that realize the way they do their job-confrontation in stead of diplomacy-is leading to global destruction...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Almost 1,600 climate activists were arrested during a blockade of the A12 motorway in The Hague on Saturday. Game of Thrones actress Carice van Houten was among those picked up.

The protestors were arrested after refusing to leave the road, which runs close to the parliamentary complex. The occupation had been banned by the city council.

In total, 1,579 people were arrested, including 10 minors.

-

The Extinction Rebellion supporters moved in to close the motorway from midday, in protest at the government’s support for the fossil fuel industry.  The last demonstrators were removed from the road around 5.30 pm.

At one point the police used water cannon to disperse the crowd.

Pro-climate demonstrators have now closed the motorway seven times but Saturday’s demo had the most arrests.

DJ, XR-EXtinction Rebellion is NOT only dealing with climate...Lots of protesters worry about healthcare, wars as well...We need to change the way (some of us) live...

A very likely scenario; US sending killing machines/weapons to Taiwan..."not a provocation" in western insanity...China/Russia stop the US sending those US/tax funded weapons...of course "that is Russia/China agression"....The US still claims Taiwan is part of China....

Maybe Russia, China should send weapons to Alaska, California, Texas, Scotland....see how D.C. or London reacts...The present trajectory will result in a US/UK/NATO war with also China...

if we were to use the definition of hybrid war that also includes coups and other forms of meddling, only then we would get the idea of the true scale of US aggression against the world. Such an endeavor would certainly require an academic approach and precisely this is what Providence-based Brown University did in its recent study that focused on the consequences of US wars in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.

The results of the study are truly staggering.

According to the University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, illegal and truly unprovoked US invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen and Pakistan in the last over two decades have resulted in at least 4.5-4.6 million deaths, while anywhere between 38 and 60 million people have been displaced.

Unfortunately, this is not the end of it. The study also found that at least 7.6 million children under five are starving today due to the consequences of US aggressions and invasions. The style of research and the sources used by Brown University are certainly up for debate, as the numbers could easily be far worse. However, their findings are certainly not to be ignored.

DJ, North Atlantic Terrorist Organization may be killing over a million people per year....[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/political/cnn-poll-says-66-americans-believe-another-joe-biden-term-will-lead-disaster[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/political/cnn-poll-says-66-americans-believe-another-joe-biden-term-will-lead-disaster ...it would be welcome if "only biden-or trump-was the problem...but it is NOT !

The EU needs reforms...and a lot of them ! But the UK did not manage to find a better alternative...may stop other countries from leaving the -unfair- EU. 

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/us-losing-world[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/us-losing-world ;

So the US is now asking allies to reduce exposure to China (the largest trading partner is most cases) and spend more on military to protect themselves from China. To compound the unattractive mess of the current US deal, the US has adopted industrial policy, offering heavy subsidies to attract new business to the US at the expense of its allies.

Why is the US treating its allies so badly? I have two reasons. With the advent of shale oil and gas, the US really does not need the rest of the world anymore. That is US policy can be completely geared to domestic needs, and ignore foreigners wishes with little negative consequences. The oil shocks of the 1970s showed the US it needs to pay more attention to the world, and to make the US dollar more attractive. With the US no long a net importer, there is no impetus to care about the rest of the world. If anything the pressure on China to reach out to other nations is rising.

The second reason is that income inequality is now so extreme in the US, domestic politics has become poisoned - and any concessions have become politicaly impossible. In essence US policy becomes “what can you do for me?” President Trump personifies this view, and is very popular with the US voting electorate. His chances of becoming President again have been rising lately.

The other way to look at US policy is that it is driven by corporate interests. US corporates love the access to Chinese markets, and to Chinese manufacturers, but are extremely uncomfortable with Chinese competition in leading industries. Hence Chinese tech needs to be disparaged as dangerous to stop it taking market share - see Huawei, TikTok, semiconductor investment etc. No doubt threats to the payment systems of Visa and Mastercard will portray WePay and AliPay as security threats. Or as BYD will be seen as a security risk if it begins to threaten Tesla’s position in the US. And yet the Chinese still run a large trade surplus with the US, as corporate America still needs the low cost manufacturing. Politically the US position makes no sense, but from a corporate profitability point of view it makes perfect sense.

DJ...in history the only interest for the US in foreign policy was self interest...Just like with other western countries. The US only promoted "democracy" in words-has been supporting dictators and terrorism/nazi's all over the world for decades..."in a fight for freedom" for US companies...

The major US problem now is there is competition...Russia-China offer an alternative and are able to defend it...BRIICSS+ does end US domination...

We may see further escalation in Ukraine...It could see even more countries (Poland, Belarus, Moldova) getting involved...It could become a nuclear war...

The US-and UK- are very close to crossing red lines for China...No doubt Russia and China have lots of talks on this..."Make trade not war" could see China -with Russian help- blocking sea/air routes to Taiwan-under international rules part of China...Even Taiwan itself does think of it as part of China...This does not stop the US/UK/NATO...

In MENA=Middle East North Africa todays elections in Türkiye-Erdogan very likely to win-are a major factor. Türkiye is expected to start talks with Syria-now back in all kinds of Arab/Islamic organizations...Türkiye is also a major partner of Iran, Russia, China...

[url]https://southfront.org/eric-zuesse-u-s-government-hopes-netanyahu-will-broker-ukraine-wars-settlement/[/url] or https://southfront.org/eric-zuesse-u-s-government-hopes-netanyahu-will-broker-ukraine-wars-settlement/ ;

The U.S. Government here is saying that if Russia wins this war in Ukraine, then the United States will go to nuclear war against Russia, because the U.S. Government won’t allow that (Russia’s victory there) to happen. The U.S. is making a Ukrainian ‘win’ of this war an existential issue for America, and making a promise to the current Government of Ukraine — for the idea of ‘America’ as she presented it, and as she represented Ukraine to be embodying it.

DJ...maybe the UK-under extreme right wing government-may still join the US/biden-cult in pushing for "US domination or nuclear war"....My view; most Americans, British are disgusted with the ongoing insanity and western self destruction...

Russia and China do want peace...but also security, safety, respect...It is the US/west that is sticking to global dominance...

If the US wants war with China it should have avoided war with Russia...So a US strategy may be to make the US-made Ukraine war more of an European war...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/us-losing-world[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/us-losing-world has a lot of unrealistic views in it...

-Shale oil/gas in the US is very limited...only making profit at high prices..

-US needs lots of imports of raw materials...(Lithium, Kobalt etc) for batteries, electric transport...China is leading that part of the economy...








Which countries trained the most engineers in the last thirty years? Source: Statista

DJ, China, India, Russia...even Iran !!! may end up with more engineers then the US ! 

My view; neo-liberalism/neo-conservatism is destroying everything "public"...from public transport to public education, healthcare, housing....An outcome of that ideology is the rich get even more rich...lots of tax money gets into their pockets...The rest of the planet only gets more poor...

To defend that system of inequality more and more wars/"military spending" is needed...

The basic conflict is between some sort of balance between public and private interests...most people want...and "killing for the rich" the western political elite is defending...

On the longer term there is NO !!! public support for endless NATO wars...however on the short term we may be very close to major escalation....

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Either  needs to learn about #Turkey's local cultural tradition (here is a symbolic gift to children) or is showing a reality with malign intentions to allow other interpretations. The victory of Erdogan was painful to mainstream media & the west.

DJ, western embedded tax funded "media" -other "media" owned by war-industry are not respecting the outcome of Turkish elections...

The best way for the #US to lift all sanctions on #Afghanistan and return its confiscated asset is if the Taliban attacks #Iran. Not easy.

and [url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/taliban-moves-heavy-armor-troops-to-iran-border[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/taliban-moves-heavy-armor-troops-to-iran-border ;

The Afghanistan Taliban is moving troops, and heavy weaponry to the border with Iran and warns it can capture Tehran within days, if Iran does not stop the provocations.   Oh, and all that heavy weaponry and armor. . . . was the stuff "left" there when the US departed Afghanistan.    HMMMMMMM.

Border Clashes broke out between Iranian Border Guards and the Taliban Afghan Army earlier today, with Major Artillery Exchanges occurring and additional Equipment reported to be en-Route towards the Border Region.

So far 2 Iranian Border Guards are said to have been Killed.

The Islamic Republic will change its approach if Afghanistan fails to respect international regulations and the principles of good neighborliness, says a senior Iranian commander.

Also unrest in India near the Myanmar border, [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDLmjxcXATU[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDLmjxcXATU New Atlas;

- The incoming government in Thailand following general elections, funded and backed by the US for years, vows to adopt US foreign policy across the region, and specifically in regards to neighboring Myanmar; 

- This includes Thailand adopting US Congress' "Burma Act" which funds "non-lethal aid" for anti-government militants in Myanmar; 

- The US is waging a proxy terrorist campaign against China across Eurasia, including in Myanmar where US-backed militants have repeatedly attacked Belt and Road Initiative infrastructure including a pipeline earlier this month; 

- Thailand’s new US-backed client regime is enlisting Thailand in this anti-China campaign despite China being Thailand’s largest trade partner, investor, source of tourism, infrastructure partner, and until recently, security partner; 

- Just as Europe has destroyed its economy and future prospects by enlisting in Washington’s proxy war against Russia, Thailand, the Philippines, and perhaps soon other nations in Southeast Asia are doing likewise; 

DJ, so the US/NATO may increase its neo-colonial agression in south Asia...Maybe avoid a direct confrontation with Russia, China...

[url]https://www.debka.com/medvedev-in-a-nuclear-war-a-pre-emptive-strike-is-the-rule/[/url] or https://www.debka.com/medvedev-in-a-nuclear-war-a-pre-emptive-strike-is-the-rule/ ;

Russia’s ex-president Dmitry Medvedev, said on Saturday, May 27, that the West “does not fully realize the threat of nuclear war.” Speaking after the transfer of parts of Russia’s tactical nuclear weaponry to neighboring Belarus on the Ukraine border, he said: “There are irreversible laws of war. If it comes to nuclear weapons, there will have to be a pre-emptive strike.”
Medvedev is a trusted confidant of President Vladimir, close enough to act as the presidential seat-warmer when Putin was between elections. He currently serves as deputy chair of the national security council.

He went on to say that if Ukraine were to resort to nuclear weapons, they would find [Russian] nuclear-tipped missiles flying against them. “The Anglo-Saxons do not fully realize this and believe that it will not come to this, but it will under certain conditions.”
Medvedev predicted this war going on for tens of years since “negotiations with the clown Zelensky are impossible.”

The foreign ministry in Moscow dismissed President Joe Biden’s condemnation of the transfer of Russian tactical nuclear weapons to Belorus. “Interestingly,” the spokesman commented: “This critique comes from America who for many years has maintained tactical nuclear weapons in Europe.”
Western intelligence estimates that the Russian nuclear arsenal numbers some  2,000 tactical weapons including bombs, missiles with tactical nuclear warheads and artillery shells of the same consistency.

DJ, F16's with nuclear capacity may be crossing a red line....The unwillingness of the biden-cult-"government" to go for diplomacy-after investing hundreds of billions into the US-biden made Ukraine/NATO war with Russia simply has limited ways out...

-The neo-con insanity in the US has to stop...Since it is not only biden but a "major group" it will be problematic...

-BRIICSS+ has to show they "control" their region, keeping US sabotage out...

-The idea "if you are not with us you are against us" leaves no room for diplomacy...You follow US/biden orders or you are an enemy....

In Ukraine itself there may be a power struggle; zelensky soon may be on another foreign trip, bodanov-even more fanatic head of intel wants to "kill Russians all over the world"...go for more terrorism inside Russia itself...Push also for more actions against Iran...(Wich does not make bodanov a partner for Israel...bodanov may have links with extreme anti-Jewish groups...). 

There are claims Ukraine soldiers are no longer willing to get killed on front lines...

-------------

DJ, Western media/propaganda is part of the war...Publishing claims of Ukraine offensives in Russia, Russian war crimes...western media push for public support of further escalation. Even if that escalation may bring us nuclear war....

For me another major question is what kinds of discussions Russia, China -and others- have ? Are they coordinating a defensive strategy against the US/NATO ? Or is military cooperation not that far ? Russia and Iran (both in Syria and Ukraine) may have already a form of cooperation...

When will the public in "the west" wake up ? My impression is that support for more wars is decreasing. One reason is refugees...(with NL news mentioning churches see a new influx; At least some refugees from Syria, Iraq, Ukraine now reviving NL churches...). 

Another is inflation. For now energy prices are low...the problem may show coming winter...reserves may run out high speed even in a warm winter...

------------

Refugees are not in the best of health...When they arrive in the EU, UK, US they often have had a horror-journey with thousends of them killed on their way. In the west lots of refugees may end up in "close to slave labor"....Western governments do not show any interest in stopping that. 

The total lack of any morality most "politicians" show I find shocking. NATO weapons used to kill Russian civilians-no problem...Refugees killed by the thousends-those that do arrive at a high risk of exploitation...politics "not interested"...

NATO and nazi's have the same military-industrial complex roots...The US started IS, alquaida as a "tool" against -in fact- Russia and China/BRIICSS+ ...

The way "the west" is dealing with pandemics and climate collapse-create billions pushed to private parties to "solve the problem" and control the media has lots of -immoral- similarities...

Is "western politics" only working for a rich elite, "greed based" ? How much is still democracy...what level is "democrazy" ???

US-AID introduced an "app" in Ukraine to follow Ukrainians on "social media" ...sort of mind control...Here in NL I have a freedom to totally disagree with a lot of "dominant views" ...

[url]https://nltimes.nl/2023/05/26/finance-minister-sigrid-kaags-daughters-want-quit-politics-due-threats[/url] or https://nltimes.nl/2023/05/26/finance-minister-sigrid-kaags-daughters-want-quit-politics-due-threats I am against threats...I want a discussion on "facts and visions" -non-personal-....However I fear "threats against politicians and others" may be used to limit freedom of expression...This may only make matters worse...

Here in NL I am very carefull not to go to much public with my ideas...intimidation (by who ??? Could it be organized to limit freedom ?) is a "new normal"....

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

MOSCOW, May 30. /TASS/. Moscow and the Moscow Region were attacked by drones early on Tuesday morning. Several buildings sustained minor damage, Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin said. According to the authorities, there were no casualties and emergency services are continuing to work at the scene.

TASS has gathered the main facts about the incident.

 

Initial reports

- Early on Tuesday morning, Russia’s Emergencies Ministry told TASS that ministry staff were investigating an incident in the Moscow suburbs, in which windows in a high-rise apartment building had been blown out. Fire and rescue units arrived at the scene. There were no signs of fire. According to eyewitnesses, the sound of an explosion was heard at the time of the incident.


- Emergency services told TASS that drone-like fragments were found around the house. The windows of apartments on three floors were shattered.

- It later became known that law enforcement personnel were verifying information about explosions in two other multi-story apartment buildings in the west and southwest of Moscow. There were also broken windows in some apartments.

 

Reaction of authorities

- Sobyanin confirmed the drone attack on Tuesday morning. As a result, according to him, several buildings sustained minor damage.

- According to the mayor, there are no casualties in the capital and all of the city’s emergency services are working at the scene.

- Emergency services evacuated the residents of two apartment buildings damaged by the drones. Once all necessary work is completed, the residents will be able to return to their homes.

- Several drones were shot down as they approached the capital, Moscow Region Governor Andrey Vorobyov said.

 

Situation now

- Traffic is blocked in the western and southwestern parts of Moscow, according to the city's transport department.

- Domodedovo, Vnukovo and Zhukovsky airports are operating as usual, representatives of two of the airports told TASS.

DJ, NATO is trying to get an over reaction from Russia...so shelling the Russian border-trying to kill Russian civilians, drones on Moscow, are just more NATO provocations...I think it is not realistic to call Ukraine as a major partner in this conflict. Without NATO there would not be war in Ukraine...a peace deal in Türkiye april 2022 could have saved hundreds of thousends of -most Ukrainian- lives...NATO-cocaine-bojo prevented peace then...bojo-former UK-PM-still promoting war in Texas...a lot of war-industry in Texas...

WASHINGTON, May 30. /TASS/. President of the United States Joe Biden and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan held a telephone conversation discussing bilateral relations as well as the cooperation within the framework of NATO to enhance the transatlantic security, the White House said in a statement.

"President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. called President Recep Tayyip Erdogan today to congratulate him on his re-election as President of Turkey," the statement reads. "They expressed their shared commitment to continue working together as close partners to deepen cooperation between our countries and people."

"They also discussed their readiness as NATO Allies to address regional and global challenges, including strengthening transatlantic security at the NATO Summit in Vilnius," according to the White House.

The 2023 NATO Summit is scheduled to be hosted by the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius on July 11-12.


Biden told journalists on Monday that he earlier discussed with Erdogan Sweden’s possible accession to NATO adding that he intended to continue consultations with the Turkish president next week.

DJ, Erdogan did win these elections by keeping Türkiye out of the NATO made war in Ukraine...Türkiye already has 4 million refugees from the NATO created war in Syria...

DJ, So creating another civil war-this time in Myanmar via Thailand-should be seen as "constructive western foreign policy"...China investing in (rail)roads, (air)ports, education, healthcare (free vaccines) is "Chinese agression"...One major problem is both most western politicians and media buy this insanity....

This past weekend, beginning last Friday, Russia pulled another three thousand tanks from various storage depots and began loading them on trains.  Those trains are **NOT** all going toward Ukraine; they're heading to Russia's western Border areas. 

In particular, areas near Murmansk/Kola, not too far from the Norway/Finland Border, North/northwest of St. Petersburg, near Vyborg, which is not too far from the Finland Border, then more near Kingisepp, near Narva, Estonia (from which it's a straight line to Estonia's Capital, Tallin.

Several trains headed toward Pskov, near the borders of southern Estonia, and northern Latvia.

Several other trains are headed toward Kursk and Belgorad.

DJ, If NATO wants war it can get war...Russia made that very clear by its reaction on Ukraine plans to kill Russians february 2022...with NATO help in this -yet another- genocide...(NATO was also killing lots of people a.o. in Yemen. In Iraq NATO killed over 1 million people...). 

Again...my big question is why "the western population" keeps buying this ? Is the propaganda that effective still ? Do we need to sink into economic collapse ? 

De-dollar-ization will hit the US much harder then it will damage the UK or EU....But a lack of "exit-strategy" is making this conflict much worse then the Vietnam-war...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Drones Strikes In Moscow - Missile Strikes In Ukraine

Today the Russian government revealed some numbers and information about its 'Special Military Operation'.

Today's 'clobber report' by the Ministry of Defense leads with this (machine translation):

During the day, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation carried out group strikes using long-range high-precision air-launched weapons at central decision-making points where, under the guidance of specialists from Western intelligence agencies, terrorist acts were planned on Russian territory.

All assigned objects are hit.

'Central decision-making points' are ministries and main headquarters. These had so far not been targets. More to that below.

Defense Minister Shoigu had a conference call with the military command and noted:

"Russian forces continue to inflict an effective fire impact on the enemy. Its losses this month alone totaled over 16,000 troops, 16 aircraft, 5 helicopters, 466 drones, over 400 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, and 238 field artillery pieces and mortars," Shoigu said during a conference call.

He added that 196 HIMARS rockets, 16 HARM rockets and 29 Storm Shadow long-range cruise missiles were intercepted and destroyed during the reviewed period.

The numbers are, with the exception of the downed Storm Shadows,  largely consistent with the numbers from the daily 'clobber report' in my spreadsheet. But I have only counted 17 reported Storm Shadow kills over the last month. I do not know where Shoigu's 29 is coming from.

Shoigu also spoke of targets of the recent drone attacks in Ukraine (machine translation):

“The deliveries of equipment and weapons to Ukraine are increasing. We monitor the volumes and routes of supply and, if identified, strike.

In recent days, large warehouses of Western weapons in Khmelnytsky, Ternopil and Nikolaev have been destroyed, the American Patriot anti-aircraft missile system in Kyiv has been hit,” the Minister of Defense said.

"The military support of Ukraine only delays the hostilities, but cannot affect the outcome of the special military operation," the head of the military department is sure.

On today's drone strikes in Moscow he said (machine translation):

“This morning, the Kiev regime carried out a terrorist act in the Moscow region. I will note, on civilian objects.

It involved eight aircraft-type unmanned aerial vehicles.

They are all amazed.

In Moscow, three drones were suppressed by electronic warfare, lost control and deviated from their intended targets.

Five more were shot down in the Moscow region by the Pantsir anti-aircraft missile and gun system, the Minister of Defense said.

Other people had claimed up to 20 drones. But there was little damage and no reports of any casualties.

DJ, very likely NATO staff in Kiev bunkers did get killed....

Based upon information which came to me discreetly via postal mail, I have concluded that World War 3 can kick-off in less than two weeks, between the dates of June 12 thru 24.   The largest NATO air 'exercise" - Air Defender 23 - takes place in that time period; may cover Ukraine "Counter-Offensive."

DJ...NATO can create via NATO run western media any excuse to start an all out war with Russia...I wonder how other countries (China, Syria, Iran, North Korea)  would react. 

[url]https://southfront.org/large-conflict-brewing-in-center-of-europe/[/url] or https://southfront.org/large-conflict-brewing-in-center-of-europe/ ;

The escalation between the local authorities and the Serbs has been going on for several days in the north of Kosovo. On the evening of May 29, over 90 people were injured in street clashes.

The reason for the unrest is the elections of the heads of the municipalities of North Kosovska-Mitrovica, Zvecan, Zubin-Potok and Leposavich. In November last year, the mayors of settlements resigned in protest against the decision of the Kosovo authorities to replace Serbian license plates with national ones.

Elections of new mayors were held on April 23. However, Serbian voters boycotted them. As a result, only about 3% of voters took part in the election. Due to the lack of Serbian voter turnout, representatives of the Albanian community became mayors in all four municipalities.

The Serbs inhabiting these northern cities of the region came out to protest, not allowing the new mayors to enter the administrative buildings.

The protests, which escalated into clashes with the Kosovo police, began on Friday.

On May 29, soldiers of the North Atlantic Alliance mission KFOR were deployed around municipal buildings in three northern settlements, as well as on the bridge over the Ibar River in the town of Severna Mitrovica. In Zvecan, Leposavich and Zubin Potok, they created security zones around the buildings.

KFOR peacekeepers in the region used tear gas, rubber bullets and stun grenades against the unarmed protesters. Footage from Zvenchan confirm that the Serbs began to resist the Kosovo security forces and KFOR fighters only after the latter used stun grenades. Also, a Kosovo special forces officer opened fire on the unarmed crowd.

In total, 52 civilians were wounded during the day.

Kosovo’s Western allies officially condemned Pristina’s actions, but no action was taken to deescalate the situation. The US and the EU recognized the elections with a meager voter turnout.

In his turn, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic ordered the army to advance to the border with Kosovo.

Addressing the nation, he said that the Kosovo authorities have been trying to provoke a bloody conflict between Belgrade and NATO for several months; while KFOR peacekeepers do not protect civilians, but rather protect the “fake” mayors.

Vucic stressed that Serbia will not allow persecution, pogroms or murders in Kosovo. On the morning of May 30, he held meetings with representatives of the United States, Great Britain, Germany, France and Italy to once again urge them to calm Pristina. A meeting with the ambassadors of Russia and China was also reportedly scheduled on the same day.

Russia remains the main ally of Belgrade. The Russian Foreign Minister has warned that a large conflict is brewing in the center of Europe; where, in 1999, NATO carried out aggression against Yugoslavia in violation of international agreements. The situation is alarming, but the West has set a course for total subordination of everyone who somehow expresses their own opinion.

DJ, there were protests in Beograd/Belgrade Serbia...another US regime change operation ? 

[url]https://ejmagnier.com/2023/05/30/how-far-will-the-us-go-to-confront-russia-in-ukraine/[/url] or https://ejmagnier.com/2023/05/30/how-far-will-the-us-go-to-confront-russia-in-ukraine/ ;

However, the war did not go as planned for the US or Russia. US President Joe Biden summed up his intentions succinctly: “It’s not about Ukraine. It is about Eastern Europe. It is about NATO.” This statement suggests that the US is prepared to go to any lengths to continue the war and would even welcome a nuclear response from Russia to rally the 75 per cent of nations that have refused to impose sanctions on Russia. The US wanted to reassert its dominance over Europe – as Biden stated – which was slipping away from its control. Europe – as French President Emanuel Macron declared – planned to dismantle NATO and have its army, despite the hundreds of US military bases spread across the continent since the Second World War.

When the US began supplying weapons to Ukraine, it did so based on precise battlefield needs and the effectiveness of Russian forces, as planned by the military of 50 nations at Ramstein, using all available electronic and human intelligence sources. The US claims to be directing the war from Ramstein, and US under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Victoria Nuland confirmed a few days ago to Kyiv Security Forum that her country “has been preparing for a counter-attack for four to five months.” 

This statement confirms that while blaming Ukrainian forces or Russian separatists, the US actively campaigned inside Russia, hitting multiple targets in different Russian cities. The US uses guerrilla warfare, this time through Ukrainian proxies rather than jihadists, as it did in Afghanistan in the 1980s. The aim is to humiliate Russia at home, draw it deeper into a potential quagmire on the internal and border fronts, and keep Russian forces in Ukraine as long as possible even if after 15 months, the US failed to achieve its objectives.

DJ, again I think Russia and China...also Iran, others (?) may be "making plans"...to deal with endless US/NATO wars...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, Very good talk between Judge Napolitano and Ray McGovern (RmG) on racism in US/west foreign policy. [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1dXyHf7m00[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1dXyHf7m00 . lindsy graham, victoria nuland-promoting killing Russians are crazies...pushing the world towards global war. 

DJ-The UK has a history of hate with Russia going back to Russia-UK conflicts in colonial wars in west Asia...Crimea war, but also the Russia-UK conflict over Afghanistan in the 19th century..Russia trying to get influence from the north...The British moving in from India...

So...very likely now we have seen 30 drones hitting rich neighbourhoods SW Moscow...NO military targets...NATO run media in the west trying to spin "Ukraine may not have been involved"-is NATO-media claiming "Russian opposition forces" attacking Moscow ? The official Russian view is only 8 drones reached Moscow...they were destroyed before they could do major damage...

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJS9BgLS2X4[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJS9BgLS2X4 Military Summary/MS;

-Russia did hit Kiev military centers (NATO run) in reaction to "Russian dissident forces" moving in to Belgorod region ? 

-k.bodanov head of Ukraine intel could have been killed (RmG thinks zalushny head of Ukraine army also may be dead or wounded a few weeks ago...)

-NATO expanding the war from Ukraine (a.o.) into Russia...

The Duran [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVtsZ046zE0[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVtsZ046zE0 on the NATO created Kosovo state...Serbia (and Russia etc.) still see Kosovo as part of Serbia...

So will we get another Balkan-war ? NATO fighting pro-Russia countries there ? Hungary does not agree with western insanity...some other SE Europe countries may be "on the move" away from US/UK war-insanity....

[url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/ several articles on Moscow, China...









The strike on a "decision-making center" in Kiev – the HQ of the Main Intelligence Directorate (GUR) - was PERSONALLY confirmed by Putin. Translation: a red line has been crossed. The message was NOT addressed to puppet Kiev. It was addressed to Washington and London.

and

It's slowly beginning to dawn on those with an IQ over room temperature how a bunch of neocon psychos committed one of the most glaring strategic blunders in History by putting the United States... ... in the WRONG side of History.

-

KADYROV UNPLUGGED "The drone attack on Moscow has no tactical, strategic or even psychological meaning." "Soon we will show in the SMO zone what revenge is in the full sense of the word."

DJ, translation-Russia may go after NATO in Ukraine (and Syria, Iraq)...if NATO wants war they can get war...

If #Russia doesn't impose deterrence and prevent once and for all the attacks on #Moscow, we shall see more organised attacks regularly. Russia can blame #Ukraine, but the Pentagon tells us that the #US is organizing all attacks from Ramstein.

...[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/op-ed-attorney-says-britain-and-nato-at-war-russian-military-strikes-against-them-would-be-lawful[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/op-ed-attorney-says-britain-and-nato-at-war-russian-military-strikes-against-them-would-be-lawful ;

Further, they cannot rely on Article 5 of the NATO Treaty, since that clause can only be invoked if there is an unprovoked Russian attack on a NATO country. But when a NATO country attacks Russia, and here we have them all joining in the attack, it is the aggressor and therefore cannot claim to be are acting in self-defence. It is also important to bear in mind Article I of the NATO Treaty, since it requires NATO to act in conformity with the UN Charter. It states

“Article 1

The Parties undertake, as set forth in the Charter of the United Nations, to settle any international dispute in which they may be involved by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security and justice are not endangered, and to refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force in any manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations.”

But the NATO nations have done the exact opposite. They have blocked peace at every turn and push Ukraine to keep the war going. Their forces are directly involved.  They have even attempted to expand their military bloc by inviting Finland and Sweden to join the war alliance, in order to increase the forces available to them, with one purpose, to prosecute the war against Russia. They now openly state their objective is to destroy Russia.  So, the NATO nations are not only active co-belligerents in the war, they are, in fact, the main protagonists of the enemy camp that Russia faces.  They are, therefore, all legitimate targets.

DJ...Is the US, UK, Poland, others in "war with Russia" ? Without NATO the war in Ukraine simply would be over....

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN46r30ZwaM[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN46r30ZwaM Judge Napolitano/Doug McGregor on what is next;

In short; Russia preparing mobilization of millions of soldiers. Goal is Russian security...if need be Russia will kick NATO out of Ukraine...

So-yes-there is a tendency Ukraine/NATO attacking inside Russia-it is only getting Russia -and BRIICSS+-more angry and motivated...But Russia-Iran-China know they will face a "long march"...they have gone that road before...

[url]https://southfront.org/war-heats-up-in-syria/[/url] or https://southfront.org/war-heats-up-in-syria/ 

DJ; Israel in coordination with US/UK and its HTS/IS proxies attacking-still-Syrian, Russian, Iranian positions...Very likely -my view- Israel may do so to get a stronger position in talks they will need to have with Russia, China...Iran, Syria is getting modern fighters, weapons from Russia, China. So-for now-Israel still has a chance in hitting Iran...

[url]https://thecradle.co/article-view/25429[/url] or https://thecradle.co/article-view/25429 Pepe Escobar on Erdogan/Türkiye;

A pan-Turkic offensive?

And here we enter a fascinating territory: the possible incoming interpolations between the Organization of Turkic States (OTS), the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), the BRICS+ – and all that also linked to a boost in Saudi and Emirati investments in the Turkish economy.

Sultan 2.0 wants to become a full member of both the Chinese-led SCO and multipolar BRICS+. This means a much closer entente with the Russia-China strategic partnership as well as with the Arab powerhouses, which are also hopping on the BRICS+ high-speed train.

Erdogan 2.0 is already focusing on two key players in Central Asia and South Asia: Uzbekistan and Pakistan. Both happen to be SCO members.

Ankara and Islamabad are very much in sync. They express the same judgment on the extremely delicate Kashmir question, and both backed Azerbaijan against Armenia.

But the key developments may lie in Central Asia. Ankara and Tashkent have a strategic defense agreement – including intel sharing and logistics cooperation.

DJ, parts of the Assad-Erdogan -Russia led- talks will be on the US backed Kurds in Syria...The Kurds may find themselves with very limited options...The US will get kicked out of both Syria and Iraq....No doubt the US/NATO will try to keep supplies going for IS....

Alex Christoforou [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQbDlwRaFdw[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQbDlwRaFdw on the US coming elections (within 18 months...!) so -biden- needs to find a way to sell his foreign policy disasters as "good for the USA"....Ukraine staying out of NATO but joining the EU...

A few problems-my view;

-BRIICSS+ has no reason to trust western politicians any longer...the very limited contacts between "th e west and the rest" may be indirect...Türkiye, Israel, Vatican as a "bridge" between NATO and RIC...Russia, Iran, China...

-The EU is facing bankruptcy even without Ukraine....The EU may welcome a Turkish-Syrian deal so refugees from Syria may return...Türkiye has no refugees-in large numbers-as a weapon against the EU...Peace in Ukraine-by now-for most of the EU would be more then welcome...the EU is not only trying to house millions of Ukraine refugees...it is also paying billions per month to keep an insane war going...

-Kosovo is a NATO creation lots of countries do not see it as a real country...Serbia does claim Kosovo is part of Serbia...EU is divided over that as well...

-Both NATO and EU need an Ukraine victory or face major problems to explain their crazy actions...

The UK is headed for the second summer of strikes as the seemingly intractable cost-of-living crisis devastates household finances. British officials are so desperate to alleviate despair among Brits that they are considering drastic measures, such as implementing food price controls. 

Brits received the grim news on Tuesday as food prices remain at or near record levels. The British Retail Consortium (BRC) said annual food inflation eased from 15.7% to 15.4% this month. However, the cost of store items, known as shop price inflation, increased to 9%, a new high for the index that dates back to 2005. 

DJ, lower income groups spend more on "basics"; food, housing, energy...so they may have been hit much harder by high inflation with less reserves to deal with that inflation. Political failures not only is pushing the west into a major health crisis...Political "disconnect" -parties no longer in contact with much of the population-is a recipe for social collapse...

In lots of western countries social divisions are getting harder...Some countries may face an increase of terrorism...(In Germany one can link the Vietnam-war with the rise of the red army fraction/raf a.o. trying to kill alexander haig [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Haig#NATO_Supreme_Allied_Commander_(1974%E2%80%931979)[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Haig#NATO_Supreme_Allied_Commander_(1974%E2%80%931979) The "raf" may have had help from former East Germany...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Putin#KGB_career[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Putin#KGB_career )

DJ-We have "dirty wars" all of the time...from stealing info to killing key persons...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassination_of_Qasem_Soleimani[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassination_of_Qasem_Soleimani ...of course this goes against all kinds of laws...The UCK [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kosovo_Liberation_Army[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kosovo_Liberation_Army was a criminal/mafia-like group NATO used to break Kosovo away from (pro-Russia) Serbia...The break up of Yugoslavia in the '90's was a NATO move to weaken former Sovjet allies....

The present global crisis still-in many ways-is related to the break up of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the way the "west" went for neo-colonial global domination...Wiser policies from the west could have prevented this...

DJ-I think there may be some western countries (France ? Italy ? Greece ?) trying to get a form of de-escalation...NATO and EU -in practice- may be very divided....The economic war is a longer term war...winter 2023/24 may bring the west an unseen energy (and food) crisis...De-dollar-ization does take time...

Most western countries do not want an all out war with Russia...(not even to mention a war with Russia-Iran-China !) ...the price already now is way to high...The west is getting poorer each day...BRIICSS+ see economic growth...

It may no longer be a matter of "win or lose" but a matter of damage control for the "west"....

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
