DJ, one ot the things now discussed in "secret wars" is replacing zelinsky with zalusny in Ukraine...however "to do what for who" ?

-biden wants to "continue his succesfull presidency"...so do his sponsors-for now...So "a victory for Ukraine" would be welcome...

-Poland is seeing a civilian uprise; farmers/truckers dealing with "unfair competition" from Ukraine under EU rules...also Poland has to deal with several million Ukrainians seeking safety in Poland...(some of them going up and down into west Ukraine..) 

-Poland may have lost thousands of its "volunteers" fighting in Ukraine-given all Poland could give now seeing Ukraine losing the war.

-Poland, Hungary have countrymenliving over the border in Ukraine-now being targeted by Ukraine recruiters to die in an insane war...

-Poland, Hungary, Romania also "have claims" on western Ukraine....

-The EU would "like to see an Ukraine victory" in the (false) hope to restart cheap energy imports from Russia....

-Baltics need security-may no longer trust NATO promisses...

So...maybe "NATO can move east" via Poland, Hungary,  Romania moving east ....(will Moldova be reunited with Romania in that deal ?) 

Russia will reclaim the east and south of Ukraine...what then remains of Ukraine "may be even allowed to join the EU" (because Ukraine is totally bankrupt)....

Russia may resume some energy exports to the EU via pipelines in (former) Ukraine...

...so western help did bring success ! NATO moving east, Ukraine joning the EU ! 

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

Another question is what use the "israeli" war has for the US/west ? Will it stop BRICS ? Will it increase western control over oil and gas ? Increase western deterrence ? 

Some ideas of a "greater israel" include most of the Middle East....In such a scenario NATO-proxy "israel" would regain a function to control the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region...The price would for a large part have to be paid by "israel"...(just like in the NATO war against Russia most of the killed were Ukrainians...). 

Western phantasies did not expect Saudi Arabia, UAE, India sticking this much to the BRICS idea...Specially the US had the illusion India would give up its decades old good relations with Russia to become part of an India-Saudi-Israel trade link with the EU....

The Imran Khan coup in Pakistan was supposed to "limit" Pakistan working with China and Russia...however its replacement has no alternatives...Pakistan is the eastern part of the TIP-link Türkiye-Iran-Pakistan...with China investing in (rail)roads to boost China trade with Europe and Africa...

So the western dream of India-Saudi-Israel link (ISI) did not survive confrontation with reality either....The west may even welcome Saudia/UAE talking with Yemen Houthis over a ceasefire in the Red Sea....

DJ...my impression is the west had a "strategy based on wishfull dreaming" providing "israel" help in october 2023...Again..reality turned out to be completely different;

-the west expected a short military action in Gaza

-Very likely both the west and "israel" knew of the Hamas attack plans for october 7...

-However the "west" was shocked by "israeli" reaction-killing over a thousend Israelis to kill Hamas fighters/terrorists...

-My view; over and over "the west" is making deals with netanyahu...however if netanyahu only breaks those deals so far without any consequences...

-The "card" netanyahu is playing is "the west" may need "israel"....it is the last western influence in West Asia...(Yes there are over 50,000 US soldiers a.o. in Jordan, Qatar etc. but with "very limited" use...The US goal was to "offer protection against Iran" but now Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Iran are partners in BRICS...) 

-If the US/west stop "help" to "israel" it may lose its bridgehead in West Asia....(because it would mean the end of israel...) 

-biden still may need pro-"israel" support/donors for his re-election...During trump his presidency the US was even more "pro-israel"....

So...the west may be stuck...unable to stop israel -hoping it does not last that long...

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

DJ...if both wars go wrong biden may restart his bla-bla over both the ongoing pandemic and climate collapse...He made both much worse...

NIJMEGEN - It is probably one of the least known disasters in Dutch history, the bombing of Nijmegen on 22 February 1944. Some 800 people were killed and thousands injured. For a long time, it was hardly talked about, partly because the bombs came from American planes. But now, eighty years after the tragedy, there is more attention than ever, including a documentary with eyewitness accounts.

DJ The US bombing of Nijmegen -today 80 years ago- was the worst bombing in NL history...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_bombing_of_Rotterdam[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_bombing_of_Rotterdam did see less people killed...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombing_of_the_Bezuidenhout[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombing_of_the_Bezuidenhout ; The bombing of the Bezuidenhout (Dutchbombardement op het Bezuidenhout) took place on 3 March 1945,[7] when the Royal Air Force mistakenly bombed the Bezuidenhout neighbourhood in the Dutch city of The Hague resulting in the death of 532 citizens.

DJ, february 22-1944 did also see 57 civilians killed in Arnhem by US bombs...Deventer, Enschede also were attacked...

There still is a lot of discussion on why the US bombed that many Dutch cities that day ? If it was a mistake-how could such a big mistake have been made ? Some claims railways were supposed to be hit...in part it did also destroy NL railway links with Germany...for a short time...

Allied air raids on the Netherlands killed thousends in World War Two...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allied_bombing_of_Rotterdam_in_World_War_II[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allied_bombing_of_Rotterdam_in_World_War_II  also [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuengamme_concentration_camp#Evacuations,_death_marches,_and_the_bombings_of_Cap_Arcona[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuengamme_concentration_camp#Evacuations,_death_marches,_and_the_bombings_of_Cap_Arcona did kill many concentrationcamp survivors...

(Some of them communists...again-during World War Two the west did also fight a war against communism in occupied Europe...). 

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

!!! The Sunni military of the pro-Saudi regime in Yemen, without orders from their command, opened the main highway connecting the regime’s actual stronghold in Marib with the country’s capital, Sanaa, which is under the control of the Houthis. 
Ordinary Yemeni opponents from among the soldiers and officers who had previously fought against the Houthis, after they entered the war for the Palestinians, began en masse to go over to the side of the Houthis and recognize the power of the young President Mahdi Al-Mashat, the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the Houthis in Yemen. 
Palestine has united the Yemenis, who have been killing each other since 2014, waking up from the heat of Saudi propaganda, recognizing the power of the true people's government of Yemen - Ansarallah.

 #Yemen  🇷🇺 Sofa General Staff (look what is nearby - oil and gas)

Regional relationships developing in the Middle East are changing in ways that should give us and our friends in Israel serious pause. By April or May they will have a regional alliance and a readiness across the Muslim world to act against Israel and potentially America.

DJ, For "the west" Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt joining BRICS -and now even moving closer to Iran- must be a shock...A basic western/US idea was both Saudi Arabia and India could be "talked/bribed" out of BRICS...that strategy failed...

🇺🇸🇺🇦 A turning point is coming: the United States predicts a “catastrophic” shortage of ammunition in Ukraine as early as March, - ABC. 

▪️ABC News interlocutors called “the end of March” a particularly decisive time for the Armed Forces of Ukraine if Congress does not approve a project with funding for Ukraine. 

▪️ "The tipping point begins now, and it will gradually worsen through the spring and into the summer. So, this period that we are entering is critical," the Pentagon spokesman said. 

▪️US officials also predict a shortage of air defense assets. “What is protected today, they will not be able to protect these facilities in the future if they do not maintain the supply of interceptor missiles,” the US Department of Defense said. 

▪️And if Russia gains control of the skies, “it will completely change the nature of this fight,” the official added. http://t.me/RVvoenkor

DJ, what I understand of it...extra billions from US tax payers would go to US war industry...there are not much weapons to send...they first have to be produced...

🇲🇩🇷🇺 NO SLEEP TIL TRANSNISTRIA!!! Transnistria plans to join Russia.
 ➡️ Transnistria may appeal to Moscow for entry into Russia as soon as February 28, according to Transnistrian opposition leader Gennady Chorba. 
➡️ The leader of the republic, Vadim Krasnoselsky, is initiating the convocation of a congress of deputies at all levels due to "pressure from Moldova." 
ℹ️ Throughout the entire history of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (PMR), such congresses have been held only 6 times and have been associated with significant events. 

The last time such an event took place was in 2006, and as a result, it was decided to hold a referendum on the possible integration of the republic into Russia. Almost 97% of the residents of Transnistria who voted supported full integration with Russia. At the moment, Transnistria is under strong economic and political pressure from the authorities of Moldova. Chisinau hopes to reintegrate the republic by 2030 at the latest, as stated by the Minister of Defense of Moldova, Anatol Nosaty.

DJ, For Russia Transnistria becoming part of Russia may open the door to the Black Sea Coast/Odesa (or) Odessa. It will bring war close to Moldova/Romania...








At the International Court of Justice China points out that armed resistance against occupation is enshrined in international law and is not terrorism. A point that is rarely if ever heard in our mainstream media.

DJ...annexation is occupation going a step further...both in Palestine and in Ukraine...

DJ...stoltenberg claiming F16's can attack deep inside Russia...as long as there is a sign on it that the F16 is Ukrainian...Will NATO "rent ships" to Ukraine to attack Vladivostok, St.Petersburg...those ships being "Ukrainian" only during the attack ? 

MS mentioned yesterday Russia destroyed another patriot-basis...very likely killing up to 20 "UK volunteers"...With Ukraine running out of soldiers pushing in more and more western soldiers as "volunteer" is pushing us closer to an all out Russia/BRICS - NATO war...

NATO has limited soldiers, did send a large amount of weapons to Ukraine and "israel"...still "western politicians" believe "the west has to win"....The main reason why we are not yet in World War Three (or did die in a nuclear war)  is Russia/BRICS do not want such a war...(for now)...









I align with anyone of ANY party who is anti-war. Period.

DJ, in western dominant propaganda being against war makes you "pro-Putin" and "pro-Hamas/antisemitic"...Western main stream media/almost all politicians claim "these wars are good"...The "west" is defending human rights in Russia (and China, Iran, Syria etc)....while in fact the west is fighting for US$-dominance...control over energy...

Again...the west is isolated...the rest of the world is uniting in BRICS+...it is an impossible position for the west...The alternative is NOT surrender but cooperation...Nigeria is -like Egypt- the latest in a long list dumping the US$...

There remains a risk of "the west" acting as a very spoiled child-If we can not have everything we blow up the world....Insanity can kill...

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

Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte is increasingly likely to become the next secretary general of Nato, now that American president Joe Biden and the British government have backed his appointment.

Both Reuters and Politico say that Biden’s support for Rutte, who has been prime minister for 13 years, has been confirmed.  “President Biden strongly endorses PM Rutte’s candidacy to be the next secretary general of Nato,” a US official told Reuters.

DJ...[url]https://www.politico.eu/article/nato-twist-romania-president-seeks-to-challenge-rutte-for-top-job/[/url] or https://www.politico.eu/article/nato-twist-romania-president-seeks-to-challenge-rutte-for-top-job/Klaus Iohannis wants to lead NATO, Romanian diplomats told counterparts in the defense alliance.

Romania notified allies on Thursday that President Klaus Iohannis was considering challenging frontrunner Mark Rutte for the NATO top job.

Iohannis' last-minute move comes as the biggest powers in the 31-strong alliance already declared support for Rutte over the last 24 hours, with the U.S., the U.K., Germany and France all saying they back the outgoing Dutch prime minister as the next leader of NATO.

About 10 countries remain undecided, including some Eastern European nations who share strategic concerns with Russia-skeptic Romania, but they will find it difficult to openly challenge U.S. President Joe Biden's preferred candidate.

NL did have a secretary-general post of NATO twice already;

-[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Luns#NATO_Secretary-General_(1971%E2%80%931984)[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Luns#NATO_Secretary-General_(1971%E2%80%931984) ; 

As a young student he positioned himself on the political right, favouring a strong authority for the state and being of the opinion that socialism, because of its idealistic ideology, had fostered the rise of fascism and nazism.[4] Luns joined the National Socialist Movement in the Netherlands (NSB) in 1933 and left three years later but when questioned about it in later years, never admitted that it might have been "a youthful misjudgment".[5]

-

Luns married Baroness Lia van Heemstra, who was a niece of Baroness Ella van Heemstra, the mother of actress Audrey Hepburn. The Lunses had two children − a son and a daughter.[5]

He remained a practising Catholic throughout his life and was generally sympathetic to the traditionalist Catholic position but never affiliated himself with dissident groups.

DJ...NL supported the US invasion of Iraq...so "we did get a NATO job"...

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Rutte[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Rutte did follow US orders to the extreme...promoting war both in Ukraine and Palestine...however "rutte" is very experienced in saying sorry..."not having an active memory" when he is caught lying...

DJ-My view of rutte...he may be responsible for the deaths of thousends in NL...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_childcare_benefits_scandal[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_childcare_benefits_scandal ...inaction and lies during the CoViD pandemic-still ongoing...Climate change may be "news" for rutte...

No doubt the "perfect candidate" for a warmongering club like NATO....

In just over four months in #Gaza, there have been more #children, more journalists, more medical personnel, and more  staff killed than anywhere in the world during a conflict. It is with profound regret that I must now inform you that  has reached a breaking point, with Israel’s repeated calls to dismantle it and the freezing of funding by donors at a time of unprecedented humanitarian needs in Gaza. Read my letter to the President of the UN General Assembly  👇 https://unrwa.org/newsroom/official-statements/letter-commissioner-general-president-general-assembly

DJ, rutte was one of the first to stop UNRWA funding...while NL was sending spare parts of F35's to "israel" ...rutte visited "his friend" netanyahu several times since october...

So...with the election of a new "NATO leader" one could claim NATO is making clear its position in the world...rutte did end some speeches on Ukraine with the (fascist-bandera-rutte may not know it) salute "slava Ukraini"...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slava_Ukraini[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slava_Ukraini ;

In the 1930s, it became widespread as a slogan of the far-right Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN),[3] as well as Ukrainian diaspora groups and refugee communities in the West during the Cold War. In the Soviet Union, the phrase was forbidden and discredited by Soviet and later Russian authorities.

DJ [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutschlandlied[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutschlandlied and [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutschlandlied#Text[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutschlandlied#Text ...Germany gave up;

Germany, Germany above all
Above all in the world
When it always, for protection and defence
Brotherly stands together.
From the Meuse to the Neman
From the Adige to the Little Belt,

Somehow "the west" is blind for Ukraine nationalism becoming fascism....Like the west ignoring zionism becoming criminal...

One can defend "limited nationalism" but never can defend genocide !

A look at the alternative for "rutte" as secretary general of NATO; 

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

Klaus Werner Iohannis (Romanian: [ˈkla.us joˈhanis]German: [ˈklaʊs joˈhanɪs]; also spelled Johannis; born 13 June 1959), sometimes referred to by his initials KWI in the Romanian press,[2][3] is a Romanian politician, physicist, and former physics teacher who has been serving as the president of Romania since 2014. He became the president of the National Liberal Party (PNL) in 2014, after previously serving as the leader of the Democratic Forum of Germans in Romania (FDGR/DFDR) between 2002 and 2013. Prior to entering national politics, he was a physics teacher at the Samuel von Brukenthal National College in his native Sibiu.

He was first elected the mayor of the Romanian town of Sibiu, Transylvania in 2000, on behalf of the Democratic Forum of Germans in Romania (FDGR/DFDR). Although the German (more specifically Transylvanian Saxon) population of the once predominantly German/Transylvanian Saxon-speaking town of Sibiu had declined to a tiny minority by the early 2000s, he won a surprise victory and was re-elected by landslides in 20042008, and 2012. He is credited with turning his home town into one of Romania's most popular tourist destinations, Sibiu subsequently obtaining the title of European Capital of Culture in 2007 alongside Luxembourg City, the capital of Luxembourg.

In October 2009, four of the five political groups in the Parliament, excluding the Democratic Liberal Party (PDL) of then President Traian Băsescu, proposed him as a candidate for the office of Prime Minister of Romania; however, Băsescu refused to nominate him despite the Parliament's adoption of a declaration supporting his candidacy.[4] He was again the candidate for Prime Minister of the PNL and the Social Democratic Party (PSD) in the elections in the same year.[5] In February 2013, He became a member of the National Liberal Party (PNL), accepting an invitation from then liberal leader Crin Antonescu, and was immediately elected the party's first vice-president, eventually becoming the PNL president during the following year.

Ideologically a conservative,[6][7][8][9] he is the first Romanian president belonging to an ethnic minority, as he is a Transylvanian Saxon, part of Romania's German minority, which settled in Transylvania beginning in the 12th century (as part of the Ostsiedlung process which took place during the High Middle Ages).[10] He was initially elected in 2014 and then subsequently re-elected by a landslide in 2019.

His late presidency (i.e. his second term) has been marked by democratic backsliding[11] as well as a slight shift towards illiberalism[12] and a more authoritarian[13] style of government, especially after the 2021 political crisis and the formation of the National Coalition for Romania (CNR).[14] It has faced allegations of suppression of freedom of speech and also suppression of press freedom.[15][16] Furthermore, his approval ratings have been drastically decreasing since April 2021 onwards as his electorate's trust in him declined tremendously based on his negative political behaviour, favouring the PSD and betraying both his voters as well as his former political allies (albeit several of them being solely conjunctural in the past) in the process (as well as making a long series of political errors). In 2023, The Economist ranked Romania the last country in the European Union (EU) in the world terms of democracy,[17][18] even behind Viktor Orbán's Hungary.[19][20][21][22][23] Moreover, as of 2022, Romania ranks 61st globally according to The Economist Democracy Index (on par with Montenegro), 5 positions behind Hungary and still lagging behind Botswana since at least 2021 onwards.[24][a] A survey from June 2023 shows that over 90% of Romanians do not trust Iohannis, with only 8% having a positive opinion on him.[26]

Various polls and political commentators have ranked Iohannis as the worst president of Romania since the 1989 Romanian Revolution.[27][28][29][30]

DJ...interesting...both NL and Romania want to get rid of a politician they grew tired of....

Just Keep Bringing Awareness To The Depravity Of The Empire In As Many Ways As Possible At this point in history the most effective way for westerners to fight the empire and build support for revolutionary change is to undermine public support for western status quo systems and institutions. 

One does this by using every means at their disposal to help people see that the power structures which rule over us don’t serve our interests, and that they are in fact profoundly evil and destructive.

 It takes a flash of insight for a westerner to be able to really see the perniciousness of the US-centralized empire in all its blood-soaked glory. 

This is because westerners spend their entire lives marinating in empire propaganda from childhood, which has normalized and manufactured their consent for the murderous, exploitative and oppressive power structure we live under. 

The current status quo is all they’ve ever known, and the idea that something better might be possible is alien to them.

-

Nothing you do on this front is wasted effort. All positive changes in human behavior at any level are always preceded by an expansion of awareness, so anything you can do to help bring awareness to the reality of our situation is energy well spent. Any effort you make to shove human consciousness toward the light of truth in even the tiniest way has a beneficial effect on our species.

Since "war" is about winning or losing; 

The winners; 

-MIC; military industrial complex + some criminal banksters...Mainly in the west...From Rheinmetal-Germany to Lockheed-Martin, Raytheon, etc in the US...In most non western countries "strategic industries" are under state supervision or are owned by the state...so weapons, big pharma in most of the world can NOT go for "big profits"...

NATO may be exceptional in that aspect...

-Hamas, Houthis, Hezbollah...Yes NATO-proxy "israel" may have killed thousends of Hamas fighters...with that killed tens-of-thousends civilians...new members for Hamas must be much larger that NATO is able to kill...

The Houthis now are seen as hero's not only in all of Yemen but in almost all of the Arab world...now even get help from the Saudi's that did fight them for years...NATO "did attack" Houthi positions with missiles..each attack must cost NATO tens of millions...but it is NOT stopping the Houthis in stopping western shipping via the Red Sea...

-BRICS+ may be able to see a lot of new members in the Kazan/Ruusia october BRICS+ meeting...With Egypt, Nigeria de-dollar-izing NOW a main aspect of BRICS; trade in your own local/regional currency is already becoming a trend in most of the world...The "west" can not escape from it...Not all EU countries use the Euro/€ ...even they may decide to use their own currency for trade...

-Russian weapon producers...in his latest video MS had a US Abrams tank destroyed in Ukraine..."the best western weapons" (again) failing in Ukraine when confronted with "the best" Russian weapons...Part of that story is western weapons were NOT made for use in Ukraine...both the distance, mud/snow, winter show to break a lot of western weapons...In Iraq, Libya, Syria hot, dry weather and sand/dust also proved to "kill" western weapons...but the western enemies then were not as organized...

LOSERS !!!!

-You and me...as western citizen...not only is our tax money wasted in criminal wars...most political parties show themselves to be a "bunch of insane war mongers"!!!

I am a pacifist...we once had a pacifist party...Here in NL some of the "left" parties still may be a bit more skeptical...but so far we did not see massive protests against the NATO war in Ukraine (Lavrov-Russia FM- did warn on februari 1 -2008; Russia will see Ukraine and Georgia joining NATO as a provocation...). There have been some protests against the genocide on Palestinians...

In general however in most of the west most political parties support the ongoing wars...including sending billions in money and weapons to Ukraine, "israel"...a Red Sea NATO mission...

-Both Ukraine and "israel" are losers...their countries are destroyed..."over"...importing foreign workers/fighters does cost a lot of extra money but only delays talks...Palestinians are being killed by the thousends...they deserved better...

Humanity has lost...I hoped never to see a repeat of Worl War Two like crimes in my life...But the "equalization" of press/politics all going pro-war undermined my trust in democracy...Is everything for sale ? How far will it go ? 

I hope NOT to see nuclear war...however we have NEVER been this close to nuclear war before...

I did lose my trust in reason, ratio...people (also those in power) doing rational things...Not going for mass destruction. denial of genocide, pandemic, climate collapse...

I am not religious but making money a "god" is not my idea of civilization...

What is next; 

Ukraine is breaking down...only to see more western soldiers fighting in it as "volunteer"...A Russian AWACS was shot down east of Ukraine...unclear if that still may be sold as an Ukraine attack...NATO is getting more and more involved...

Over a thousand "Polish volunteers" were killed in Ukraine...hundreds of US, UK, Georgia, France "volunteers". Often they were "active duty" before moving to Ukraine...may still get paid by the west...Lots of modern western weapons are used in Ukraine-with Ukraine simply not having the military able to fully deal with high-tech western weapons...So who is in control of Himars, drones, etc ? "Western instructors and advisors"???? 

Western satellites and drones gather info for battlefield use...The US most likely blew up Nord Stream...Russia is still willing to "contain" the fighting to Ukraine...That ends when western fighter jets use bases in Poland, Romania etc. to attack Russian positions in Ukraine...

-"israel" may plan to continue "its actions" in Gaza, West Bank, Lebanon...Very likely "israel" did see hundreds of its soldiers killed...is in the worst war since 1948...So far "the region" did not get involved full scale...NATO is protecting its proxy...

However Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, UAE -all in BRICS- will be in talks with both the region and Russia, China on "scenario's"...

Both in Ukraine, Palestine but also a.o. China/Taiwan and Korea time is on the side of BRICS....the "west/NATO" is wasting its resources in insane wars...

So if the west is destroying itself BRICS+ has a choice to "sit and wait" ...make trade not war outside most of the west...Even if that means lots of people getting killed...

The alternative may be much worse....On a daily basis between 1,000 and 2,000 people die in Ukraine and Palestine...all out open war may see millions killed per day...

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

Very likely since the end of World War Two we never did see a day without someone dying somewhere because of military action..."War" may be very unwelcome...the "best" option "we" may have is trying to limit wars the most we can...

Is "war in human nature" ? Maybe it is...humans are far from perfect...There is enough proof chimpanzees have "wars"...one group fighting another group of chimpanzees...

"Following orders" ([url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment ) may be part of a dark side of humans...Bloodthirst...a "kick from killing" . A.o. [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T._E._Lawrence[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T._E._Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) admitted to "get a kick" out of killing...[url]https://www.history.com/news/10-things-you-may-not-know-about-lawrence-of-arabia[/url] or https://www.history.com/news/10-things-you-may-not-know-about-lawrence-of-arabia (does not mention the kick)

[url]https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/cross-check/why-soldiers-get-a-kick-out-of-killing/[/url] or https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/cross-check/why-soldiers-get-a-kick-out-of-killing/ ;

Do some soldiers enjoy killing? If so, why? This question is thrust upon us by the recently released video of U.S. Apache helicopter pilots shooting a Reuters cameraman and his driver in Baghdad in 2007. Mistaking the camera of the Reuters reporter for a weapon, the pilots machine-gunned the reporter and driver and other nearby people.


The most chilling aspect of the video, which was made public by Wikileaks, is the chatter between two pilots, whose names have not been released. As Elizabeth Bumiller of The New York Times put it, the soldiers "revel in their kill." "Look at those dead bastards," one pilot says. "Nice," the other replies.

DJ...stress and power may "mix"...Some veterans get nightmares PTSD etc. others only develop mental issues at old age...or never...

I never killed someone-hope I never will see a situation that desperate...

A third aspect why "soldiers fight and kill" is group pressure..."brotherhood"....protecting "your" group against outside risks...(sometimes the outside risk may be the commander of the group...). 

DJ-If we want to avoid war we have to understand "war" better...From making profits to the psychiology of fighters willing to kill...

The Russians Captured Sieverne And Lastochkyne | F16 To Be. Military Summary And Analysis 2024.02.24

DJ...april may see F16's in action over Ukraine, MS wondering who did bring down another A-50 Russian AWACS...Russia claimed-again- "friendly fire"...Ukraine claimed a S-200 did shoot down the A-50 in SW Russia...The A-50 (russia has a limited number of them) can be used to detect/follow F16's...

Legal experts green light Russian asset seizure. Medvedev, F16 warning

DJ, To 'celebrate" two years of succesfull western provocations resulting in the Ukraine war EU-UK-US;

-sanction companies from India, Türkiye, China that do bussiness with Russia...DJ-outcome will be the west even more isolated...

-steal Russian assets in western institutions, DJ Russia and allies may "take over/freeze" western assets...again-it is making the position of the west weaker in the international trade system...

-very likely find ways to send more (military/financial) aid to Ukraine...

Even if the west puts together 500 billion in "aid" it may only prolong the war...not bring other results...

Weeb Union latest has two US Abrams tanks lossed..

--------

We may move to a "worst case scenario"; NATO putting in lots of weapons (V-STOL aircraft Vertical-Short Take Off and Landing) because the F16 -in a normal version- needs long runways...Lots of "western volunteers" using western weapons "to stop Russian agression"  and "defend human rights/navalny etc..."...

Ignoring most of the world think the main reason for the war in Ukraine is NATO moving east...ignoring over and over made warnings from Russia they can not accept NATO that close to Russian border...

The "west" did invest trillions in the Ukraine war since 2014....Ukraine has a lot of natural resources the west want to control..."Winning" the Ukraine war will open up Russia for the west and break up BRICS...

From that perspective "the west" can not give up "supporting Ukraine"....

However in the US republicans still rather fight China....

Gravitas | UK's nuclear missile test flops | Iran unveils stealth warships | WION

The British Royal Navy has become a royal laughing stock. For the second time in a row, it has failed to successfully test-fire the Trident II nuclear missiles. These missiles are supposed to guard the UK should an enemy attack the country, but the British Navy does not seem to be able to figure out how to fire the missiles from its nuclear submarines.

DJ, for the second time the UK was unable to launch a missile from a submarine...the last succesfull launch goes back to 2012...In 2016 a test-missile-after launch-went towards the US instead of the south Atlantic...this time the second stage failed-so the missile almost hit the submarine where it came from...

The UK "did steal" an Australian submarine order for submarines from France last year in an AUKUS "deal"...

Iran presented two heavy armed high speed stealth warships...Iran may send those towards the Red Sea...in a coalition with Yemen ?

INTEL Roundtable w/ Johnson & McGovern: Ukraine/Israel Intel Wrap

DJ...in the US some "politicians" go "kill them all" claiming ALL Palestinians are terrorists....Russo-phobia also a problem in intel...

DJ-my view-BRICS+ may try very hard to avoid an all out war...the only way the can archieve that is by disarming the west and cut of any funding/trade....

To many leaders are "blind"...most of the public not interested...The "energy-weapon" BRICS has is most effective in winter...spring is around the corner...

Unless there are coups in Ukraine, "israel" the west has decided to keep the wars -to stop BRICS- going and even seek escalation...even if that will destroy the west...

Pentagon Admits Ukraine Aid Unsustainable + Why Neutrality is Ukraine's Only (Good) Option

Feb 25, 2024

Update on the conflict in Ukraine for February 25, 2024... 

- Russian forces have cleared Avdeevka, taking over a thousand Ukrainian soldiers prisoner, illustrating the disorganized nature of Ukraine’s withdrawal; 

- The US Department of Defense admits essential supporting elements for sustaining US weapon systems transferred to Ukraine were never provided, thus inhibiting the effective use of US arms by Ukrainians; 

- A fighting force makes up a small percentage of an overall military service because of the large amount of support infantry require on the modern battlefield. Without these supporting elements, a fighting force cannot sustain combat especially against a better supported force; 

- US military equipment is especially complex to sustain and maintain on the battlefield, a fact illustrated by US purchases of Russian helicopters for Afghan forces because US helicopters were too difficult to fly, maintain, and sustain; 

- The end game for Ukraine is particularly bleak considering the attritional nature of the conflict, Russia’s ability to outproduce Ukraine and its allies, and the unrealistic objectives Ukraine and its Western sponsors are attempting to achieve; 

- Attempts to focus on Russian military shortcomings while ignoring Ukrainian military shortcomings produces a fatally flawed perception of the conflict disallowing both the means and objectives of the fighting to be realistically evaluated;

DJ, The US/NATO repeating the mistakes made in Afghanistan now in Ukraine...In fact "politicians" making military decissions they do not seem to understand..

A modern -western- army is an "integrated" one...Not only do military need to know their own job/weapons...they also need to know what other military can offer...The goal/best use of each weapon in what kind of conflict...

DJ-"western leaders" think they can "push" a load of weapons into a country and "the weapons will win the war"...pretty insane !

-Ukraine military were in fact untrained to use the western weapons..

-So they at best only used a very tiny fragment of what those weapons can do...

-Without maintenance nearby those complex weapons most of the time are on transport for/from repairs...

-Those repairs are done in Poland...so the weapon had to make a 2,000 km trip...

-Lots of weastern weapons do NOT survive transport or stay behind on a frontline...

-On top of that some western weapons afe high priority targets for Russia...any sane Ukrainian stays away from it...because Russia will do all it can to destroy such weapon..

So...the same ingredients result in the same "meal"...only the place changed...Ukraine may have better roads than Afghanistan...distance/weather/duration all work against the "western aid"...

Robotyne Has Fallen | Chaotic Retreat Of The Ukrainian Army. Military Summary 2024.02.24

DJ, Ukraine now is ready to recieve F16's...it has underground bunkers to hide them...may have enlarged some runways...

What I make of it;

-Ukraine now would have 12 Ukraine pilots for the F16's...Those pilots may be used to train other Ukraine pilots...

-However it takes years to become a trained F16 pilot...

-The now supposed to be ready Ukraine pilots first had to learn English...

-The "west" may have provided "quite a lot" of F16's

-There is a training base for Ukraine pilots in Romania

-The number of F16's may make some difference...a higher number will bring more changes...

DJ-My view; Some in the west want to "keep the Ukraine war going at ALL costs"....This may include western military -as volunteer- in Ukraine..

The west may be willing to create/print "billions (trillions ???)  of extra money to also "buy military experience" (a.o. Colombian mercenaries killed in Ukraine). 

------

DJ-My view is the Ukraine war is part of a much larger conflict. In fact it may be NATO against BRICS...I do not see that view with the Duran, Judge Napolitano etc. They seem to think the "West Asia conflicts" and Ukraine are separate...

Maybe in short; Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa make the basic 5 BRICS members...Since 1-1-2024 Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Ethiopia joined the BRICS...(some now name that BRICS+)..Oktober BRICS+ will meet in Kazan/Russia to see what other nations can join and how...

DJ; BRICS enlargement may be "a bit of a problem" because there are dozens of countries waiting to join BRICS....

A country does NOT need to be a BRICS+ member to do trade with BRICS+...A basic BRICS+ point is trade in own/local currencies...A.o. Nigeria may dump the US$ for a lot of its trade...

BRICS+ could "focus" on some items;

-Energy could bring Algeria, Nigeria, Venezuela, Kazachstan, Iraq, Indonesia closer to BRICS+

-Strategic (trade) position may bring Nicaragua (alternative for the Panama-canal), Cuba, Thailand, Vietnam...

-Development may focus on Africa and/or Latin America...Kenya, Tanzania, Bolivia...

DJ...No doubt present BRICS+ members will have a lot of people working on how to "deal" with the future of BRICS...

part 2, 

DJ...maybe some more ideas on BRICS+...

-Serbia could join BRICS+ ....it could be meant to "break open" SE Europe...

-Most Latin America leaders did join Lula da Silva-president of Brazil condemning the genocide in Palestine...The "West Asia crisis" may organize a lot of countries against "the west"...A lot of Arab leaders (in part under pressure by their population) now welcome support for the Yemen-Houthis...able to block support for "israel" via the Red Sea...even with a lot of NATO air strikes...

DJ, Yemen is one of the most poor countries in the world...Each larger western airstrike may cost (western tax payers) over 100 million US$...A cruise missile is 4 million US$...Houthis also shot down an "UAV" - US Unmanned Aerial Vehicle-drone costing over 32 million US$...

Again non-western shipping has no problem crossing the Red Sea...Western shipping making clear they would not even get near "israel" may also be able to cross (however western politics do not want western shipping companies making that kind of statements; "Freedom of navigation...Yemen does not need to know what destinations western ships have"...

There still is an overland-link from the Indian Ocean to Israel via Saudi Arabia/Jordan..."israel" may get some supplies...however at such high costs one may wonder if that landroute is a help or a weapon (for/against NATO-proxy 'israel")...

--------

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcCiA5BWy_g[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcCiA5BWy_g The Duran;

ICJ ruling ignored. Biden White House isolated 

DJ, The International Court of Justice (like the ICC in The Hague/Den Haag-NL) is part of the UN...

NATO-proxy "israel" keeps ignoring the rules given by the ICJ to "limit risks for genocide"....."israel" had some time to change its policies...after that the ICJ could transfer the (South African) case (against "israel") to the UN-SC...Security Council ...

The US did veto a call for a ceasefire...again...UK abstained the other 13 members of the UNSC voted for a cease fire...If the US -again- would veto a call for a -serious- cease fire in Gaza -after the ICJ case ended up in the UNSC- the "general assembly" may have a vote...

DJ...and then again we may end up with a NATO-west against BRICS+/rest confrontation...

Like in Ukraine "western leaders" use a lot of words...while their actions speak a different language...

AM-in The Duran-mentioned "israel" did NOT yet attack Rafah or Lebanon...very likely for military reasons...(NOT political ones..the "israel" politicians want both attack Rafah/Hamas and Lebanon/Hezbollah)..

DJ...My view; "zionist extremists" want a "greater israel" including most of West Asia...The "NATO-west" want to stop BRICS+...does "NATO welcome a greater israel in West Asia"?  It could undermine BRICS+...

Another "idea" could be to "connect" the Ukraine War with a West Asia war...Ukraine did ask Georgia to open a southern front against Russia...so far Georgia said no...It did fight Russia in 2008 and suffer heavy losses (South Ossetia now part of Russia ? [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russo-Georgian_War[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russo-Georgian_War)..

Türkiye-under Erdogan-may NOT welcome such a scenario...so the US may go for "regime change" in T"urkiye...

----

When you look at a map one can see three major conflicts on the Europe-Asia border. Those conflicts started in 2014 or just before that;

-1 Ukraine

-2 West Asia; Syria now also in Palestine

-3 Yemen/Red Sea

BRICS+ involvement;

Russia is involved in both Ukraine and Syria trying to stop western backed genocidal terrorists (nazi's, IS...IS fighters once were also spotted in southern Ukraine..) 

Iran has been target of "the US/west" since the 1979 revolution ending the sjah-dictatorship...(replacing it with an "Islamic-one"???) -Iran dominant in West Asia

Saudi Arabia and UAE did fight the Yemen Houthis since 2014...since the Chinese made peace between Saudi Arabia and Iran not only did "the Arab world" welcome back Syria-Assad...now also Saudi/UAE may become "friends" with the Houthis...

Of course Egypt and Ethiopia have Red Sea links-just like the Saudi's...

-The US goal is "the US as #1" "uni-polar" world...The US incontrol of the globe...US$ as the ONLY global trade currency (not only for energy but most international trade)...

Without the US$ -basis for US debt- the US can not be a superpower...It outsourced a lot of its industry in "globalization" to low-income countries..."Made in the USA" often means assembly in the USA...(at best)...Even US weapons may be "made in China"....(Microchips may come from Taiwan, South Korea) 

DJ...another aspect seems to be "EU members gave up having their own foreign policy"....Being Dutch I find that part totally UNaceptable !!!

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

DJ, I did see an Israeli citizen protesting in Tel Aviv...he once admired Israel knesset members...the present "politicians" are disasters...I share that feeling...

Again...once I was "moderate left wing" but also NL politics have gone that bizarre I find myself "radical pro-peace"....isolated...Maybe linked to this feeling 

[url]https://www.dutchnews.nl/2024/02/ernst-kuipers-returns-to-academia-takes-post-in-singapore/[/url] or https://www.dutchnews.nl/2024/02/ernst-kuipers-returns-to-academia-takes-post-in-singapore/ ...The "NL health minister" claimed "he only was health minister between other jobs"...Do "politicians" even understand what job they do ? 

Representing voters is a very serious responsibility...present "politicians" only represent themselves...outsource most of their jobs to "others" so lobby-groups-going for company profits- manage to make the law...

Wich bring me back to the start of part 1-today...The "west" going for "to complex models"  that do not do the job they are supposed to do...

---------

I am "old"...once a phone simply was a phone...An alternative was writing a letter...Communication may have been simple but it did what it had to do...

Today A.I. may result in that you do not have an idea on "who/what is on the other side" in communication...Humans "outsourcing themselves" in a manner one may ask why there still are humans...

A bit the story of tourists making photo's all the time so later they can see what they should be seeing at the time they were there...

"What are we fighting for"...even destroying the globe..."a right for international travel" to sit in an all inclusive hotel a few thousend kilometer from home while you do not know your own area ? Is the "goal of live" the newst smart phone/car/ whatever ? Do we have any idea of "what we want from live and why"????

Or are we "naked apes" trying to impress other "apes" -to stay the Alpha #1 ? Have we gone crazy ???

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

On Sunday The New York Times published an explosive and very belated full admission that US intelligence has not only been instrumental in Ukraine wartime decision-making, but has established and financed high tech command-and-control spy centers, and was doing so long prior to the Feb. 24 Russian invasion of two years ago.

Among the biggest revelations is that the program was established a decade ago and spans three different American presidents. The Times says the CIA program to modernize Ukraine's intelligence services has "transformed" the former Soviet state and its capabilities into "Washington’s most important intelligence partners against the Kremlin today."

This has included the agency having secretly trained and equipped Ukrainian intelligence officers spanning back to just after the 2014 Maidan coup events, as well constructing a network of 12 secret bases along the Russian borderwork which began eight years ago. These intelligence bases, from which Russian commanders' communications can be swept up and Russian spy satellites monitored, are being used launch and track cross-border drone and missile attacks on Russian territory

DJ, The US would not accept a Russian network of bases in Mexico-with "activities" inside the US...Somehow for the US itself doing something like this inside Russia for "the west" was and is OK..."not a provocation"...Mass murder on ethnic Russians in Ukraine-killing thousends of them by "extreme nationalists" ..."no problem"....

Even in recent days HIMARS was used against civilian targets in Donetsk-to kill Russian civilians out of hate....

'Gaza Situation Bad, Don't Attack Hamas...': USA Warns Israel 

United States' Biden Administration has warned Israel against attacks on Hamas-run police force in besieged Gaza city, saying the security situation in the war-torn Palestinian territory is deteriorating due to attacks by armed gangs on aid trucks and that the policemen guarding the aid convoys should be spared, Axios reported. 

DJ, In Paris-France the US and Israel talked with Qatar about a "pause" and exchange of prisoners...No doubt US is feeling growing international pressure to stop its "israel" puppet in its crimes...

-----------

DJ-The "BIG" picture-my view is NATO-BRICS+ conflict;

-BRICS+ has 6 members in (Eur)Asia...Russia-India-China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, UAE...lots of potential members in Asia (Kazachstan, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia a.o.) so "to stop BRICS+" the US-led "west" has to push for wars and chaos in all of Asia...

-The (Kashmir) borderregion Pakistan-India-China may be "high risk"

-Baluchistan -Iran/Pakistan/Afghanistan also did see "western support" for "moderate murderers"

-Of course breaking up larger countries into smaller ones may be "the plan" for most Asian countries...

The "west" did kill tens-of-millions of Muslims but "is protecting"Uyghur Chinese Muslims"...realy ? 

The [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_subjects_of_Russia#Types[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_subjects_of_Russia#Types is a federation...so "it can be broken up"...Also [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provinces_of_China[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provinces_of_China can be broken up...In history China often was not one country...The same goes for India, Iran even one could claim for Saudi Arabia...

-A US/western goal may to disrupt ALL trade not made in US$....US "rules based order" already is used to hinder Iran tankers, hinder supplies getting into Syria...The west did "freeze" money/gold in western banks a.o. from Venezuela, Afghanistan...is even thinking to use the billions of Russia to "fund" Ukraine...

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

What "the west" is missing;

-By its attacks on BRICS it is not only destroying BRICS but also the world...For now western attacks only resulted in BRICS getting stronger...however the "west" can do a lot of "dirty work" to provoke wars in Asia, Africa, Latin America...

-In the past most dictators in the world were supported by the west...Working in the interest of a neo-colonial west. Western mining able to get energy, gold etc. at very low prices from those countries...keeping those countries poor and the 0,1% global elite rich...

-"To show strength" the "west" may invade smaller countries/regions (Like the US invasion of Grenada, Panama etc)

The basic problem remains uni-polar confrontation politics...The "US has the duty to rule the world" because it is "exceptional" ..."the best country ever"...a pseudo religious fanatism - somehow "European leaders" not only follow but even support...even when it is bad for Europe...

DJ-I doubt biden is "the main problem"....trump may try to make a deal with Russia only to start conflicts with Iran and China...support bolsenaro in Brasil...

BRICS+ may try to find openings in "the west"...Serbia, Belarus joining BRICS+ maybe could change the picture...

Kharkiv Evacuation | Poland Blocks Borders | Iskander Strikes. MilitarySummary 2024.2.25

DJ, MS warning for "Polish-Ukraine tensions"...Polish farmers attacking trains with Ukraine grain/busses with Ukrainians...Ukraine forces move into Poland..."So Poland is attacked by Ukraine...NATO has to move in"....

DJ-In a lot of western countries public support for wars is decreasing...so "western leaders" face increasing public pressure...Russia is now in a major offensive...with a power struggle in Kiev....So "NATO has to act soon" within a few months...or both public support and the war in Ukraine are "over"...

Maybe as a reminder; World War One ended when the German homefront no longer supported the war...The military (both German and western) had "no problem" with more war...The bloodbath could have continued for even a few more years...without ANY purpose...

February registered a 50% reduction of humanitarian aid entering #Gaza compared to January. 

Aid was supposed to increase not decrease to address the huge needs of 2 million Palestinians in desperate living conditions. 

Among the obstacles: lack of political will, regular closing of the crossing points & lack of security due to military operations + collapse of civil order. 

Cease fire + lifting the siege to allow meaningful lifesaving aid + commercial supplies are long overdue.

-








🚨BREAKING: STARVED TO DEATH. 17-year-old Ilham Joha, who has cerebral palsy, died today in Gaza due to lack of necessary food and medicine as starvation worsens in the northern Gaza Strip.

-








A 25-yr old sets himself on fire in protest of the massacres in Gaza and to support Palestinians at a time of genocide and the Press presents it as a mere suicide, forgetting to mention Gaza, Palestinians, Israel. Goebbels would be proud of the Western Press and Orwell horrified

-

Today, is the deadline for Israel’s report on „all measures taken to give effect“ to the ’s provisional measures (PM) order in the case concerning the Application of the Genocide Convention (GC) in the Gaza Strip (#SoutAfrica v. #Israel). 

At first sight, Israel does not seem to have complied with at least one of the four PMs indicated 

- Prevent commission of acts within the scope of Article II GC, including by its military ❓ 

- Prevent and punish public incitement to commit genocide ❓ 

- Enable provision of basic services and humanitarian assistance ❌ 

- Destruction and preservation of evidence ❓ 

One should not expect much from the  in response though. This is the third case in which the Court ordered the submission of a report on PMs. Myanmar has been regularly reporting since May 2020 without the Court taking any formal steps in response to the reports. Any decision on compliance with the PM order is usually reserved for the decision on the merits, which may be years off. 

In the present case, considering the humanitarian catastrophe, the Court should act immediately.

-








The last time food was delivered into Northern Gaza was Jan 23. Read that again. Israel is starving Gaza.

DJ, as always good info from [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgeW9v3yl1k[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgeW9v3yl1k Judge Napolitano;

Alastair Crooke: Can US Cap Middle East Violence?

My view; If the west/US keeps sending weapons to their "israel-proxy" even when they know "israel" ;

-is now starving Palestinians by the dozens per day in Gaza

-zionist-fascists (they even call themself fascist...)  push for a "greater israel"

-the supplies send by the west will be used for mass murder

That west itself is "partner in crime" ; partner in genocide...

NATO since 1991 killed millions of Muslims...in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Yugoslavia...."israel" only continuing a western genocide on Islam...

Alastair Crooke also mentioned "israeli" plans to close of the Al Aqsa-Mosque during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan is like closing the Vatican at Easter...DJ-It is a provocation...zionist extremists do NOT want any kind of peace...These extremist (ben gvir etc.)  are destroying "israel" out of hatred...And the "west" is helping that as "self defense"...

Rest in peace, Aaron Bushnell. Rest. In. Peace.

and;

Aaron Bushnell Burned Himself Alive To Make You Turn Your Eyes To Gaza I watched the uncensored video of US airman Aaron Bushnell self-immolating in front of the Israeli embassy in Washington while screaming “Free Palestine”. 

I hesitated to watch it because I knew once I put it into my mind it’s there for the rest of my life, but I figured I owe him that much. 

I feel like I’ve been picked up and shaken, which I suppose was pretty much what Bushnell was going for. 

Something to shake the world awake to the reality of what’s happening. 

Something to snap us out of the brainwashed and distracted stupor of western dystopia and turn our gaze to Gaza.

Bushnell was taken to the hospital, where independent reporter Talia Jane reports that he has died. 


It was about as horrific a death as a human being can experience, and it was designed to be. Shortly before his final act in this world, Bushnell posted the following message on Facebook: 

“Many of us like to ask ourselves, ‘What would I do if I was alive during slavery? Or the Jim Crow South? Or apartheid? What would I do if my country was committing genocide?’ “The answer is, you’re doing it. Right now.”

NEW - Several NATO and EU members are "considering sending troops to Ukraine" on a "bilateral basis."

Ray McGovern: (SPECIAL) - How CIA Helps Ukraine Military

DJ, Intel in NATO (proxy) countries = CIA...so [url]https://nltimes.nl/2024/01/31/un-court-clears-russia-financing-terror-ukraine-led-flight-mh17-downing[/url] or https://nltimes.nl/2024/01/31/un-court-clears-russia-financing-terror-ukraine-led-flight-mh17-downing ;

UN Court clears Russia of financing terror in Ukraine, which led to Flight MH17 downing

After seven years, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague has ruled in Russia's favour over the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. The case was brought by Ukraine, who alleged that Russia violated an anti-terrorism treaty by supporting separatists in eastern Ukraine with military aid and financing.

In its verdict, the ICJ ruled that Ukraine did not prove that Russia knew its financing would be used for the purposes of terrorism, even if its weaponry was used to shoot down the aircraft, killing innocent civilians. Russia will not have to pay damages in the case.

Again...the CIA created the "Russia did it" propaganda PR....

If you are a soldier sacrificing yourself to protect US interest, you are a rational, noble hero. But if you sacrifice yourself to protest the genocide your country is funding, you are mentally ill. If you are a Arab man auto-cremating to protest your government, you are romanticized in American newspapers. If you are an American doing the same, your news is buried or obfuscated.   There are no truths in the US. Only narratives that serve the ruling class.

Is the "west" "democratic" or is it all a show ? 

Maybe this info can prevent crimes ? 

[url]https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/cross-check/why-soldiers-get-a-kick-out-of-killing/[/url] or https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/cross-check/why-soldiers-get-a-kick-out-of-killing/ ;

Do some soldiers enjoy killing? If so, why? This question is thrust upon us by the recently released video of U.S. Apache helicopter pilots shooting a Reuters cameraman and his driver in Baghdad in 2007. Mistaking the camera of the Reuters reporter for a weapon, the pilots machine-gunned the reporter and driver and other nearby people.

-

The exchange reminds me of a Times story from March 2003, during the U.S. invasion of Baghdad. The reporter quotes Sgt. Eric Schrumpf, a Marine sharpshooter, saying, "We had a great day. We killed a lot of people." Noting that his troop killed an Iraqi woman standing near a militant, Schrumpf adds, "I'm sorry, but the chick was in the way."

Does the apparent satisfaction—call it the Schrumpf effect—that some soldiers take in killing stem primarily from nature or nurture? Nature, claims Richard Wrangham, an anthropologist at Harvard University and an authority on chimpanzees. Wrangham asserts that natural selection embedded in both male humans and chimpanzees—our closest genetic relatives—an innate propensity for "intergroup coalitionary killing" [pdf], in which members of one group attack members of a rival group. Male humans "enjoy the opportunity" to kill others, Wrangham says, especially if they run little risk of being killed themselves.


Several years ago, geneticists at Victoria University in New Zealand linked violent male aggression to a variant of a gene that encodes for the enzyme monoamine oxidase A, which regulates the function of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin. According to the researchers, the so-called "warrior gene" is carried by 56 percent of Maori men, who are renowned for being "fearless warriors," and only 34 percent of Caucasian males.

But studies of World War II veterans suggest that very few men are innately bellicose. The psychiatrists Roy Swank and Walter Marchand found that 98 percent of soldiers who endured 60 days of continuous combat suffered psychiatric symptoms, either temporary or permanent. The two out of 100 soldiers who seemed unscathed by prolonged combat displayed "aggressive psychopathic personalities," the psychiatrists reported. In other words, combat didn't drive these men crazy because they were crazy to begin with.


Surveys of WWII infantrymen carried out by U.S. Army Brig. Gen. S.L.A. Marshall found that only 15 to 20 percent had fired their weapons in combat, even when ordered to do so. Marshall concluded that most soldiers avoid firing at the enemy because they fear killing as well as being killed. "The average and healthy individual," Marshall contended in his postwar book Men Against Fire, "has such an inner and usually unrealized resistance towards killing a fellow man that he will not of his own volition take life if it is possible to turn away from that responsibility…At the vital point he becomes a conscientious objector."


Critics have challenged Marshall's claims, but the U.S. military took them so seriously that it revamped its training to boost firing rates in subsequent wars, according to Dave Grossman, a former U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel and professor of psychology at West Point. In his 1995 book On Killing, Grossman argues that Marshall's results have been corroborated by reports from World War I, the American Civil War, the Napoleonic wars and other conflicts. "The singular lack of enthusiasm for killing one's fellow man has existed throughout military history," Grossman asserts.


The reluctance of ordinary men to kill can be overcome by intensified training, direct commands from officers, long-range weapons and propaganda that glorifies the soldier's cause and dehumanizes the enemy. "With the proper conditioning and the proper circumstances, it appears that almost anyone can and will kill," Grossman writes. Many soldiers who kill enemies in battle are initially exhilarated, Grossman says, but later they often feel profound revulsion and remorse, which may transmute into post-traumatic stress disorder and other ailments. Indeed, Grossman believes that the troubles experienced by many combat veterans are evidence of a "powerful, innate human resistance toward killing one's own species."


In other words, the Schrumpf effect is usually a product less of nature than of nurture—although "nurture" is an odd term for training that turns ordinary young men into enthusiastic killers.

DJ...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Rule[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Rule ;

The Golden Rule is the principle of treating others as one would want to be treated by them. It is sometimes called an ethics of reciprocity, meaning that you should reciprocate to others how you would like them to treat you (not necessarily how they actually treat you).

-

Ancient Egypt[edit]

Possibly the earliest affirmation of the maxim of reciprocity, reflecting the ancient Egyptian goddess Ma'at, appears in the story of "The Eloquent Peasant", which dates to the Middle Kingdom (c. 2040–1650 BCE): "Now this is the command: Do to the doer to make him do."[4][5] This proverb embodies the do ut des principle.[6]Late Period (c. 664–323 BCE) papyrus contains an early negative affirmation of the Golden Rule: "That which you hate to be done to you, do not do to another."[7]

I have for a long time said that I thought that NATO troops would eventually openly enter Ukraine. Many did not agree. But we are now on the very edge of that. If it happens, it may well be the beginning of the next great European war. It is not in the Russian character to... 1/

WonderWeapon Destroyed | Russia Capture Two Villages | NATO Sends Forces To Ukraine

DJ,MS is "not correct" in the sense that NATO-members-on basis of deals made with zelensky-as a country-may send forces into Ukraine...(from minute 18 MS explains some of the more general news on Ukraine)...

MS idea is most western forces would stay in the west of Ukraine-so Ukraine could send Ukraine forces to the frontlines...

DJ-My view; The Ukraine army also need "specialists" able to use western weapons to "the best"...Russia did destroy a(nother) US made ABRAMS-tank 

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M1_Abrams[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M1_Abrams ;

Unit costM1A1: $4.3 million (domestic cost, FY1989) (~$10.66 million, FY2023)[3]
M1A2 SEP v3: $24 million (export cost, FY2022)[4]

...MS did mention before of "plans" being made to "involve more western countries"....One (older) idea was Poland moving into the west of Ukraine...

Very likely "western volunteer specialists" are already involved in more high tech weapons like HIMARS, (sea)drones etc. but NATO members now openly fighting Russia is another "sick low"....

🚨The New York Times disclosed yesterday that the CIA built "12 Secret Spy Bases" in Ukraine, waging a shadow war against Russia for the past decade. 

After a U.S.-supported violent coup toppled Ukraine's democratically elected government, CIA Director John Brennan visited Kyiv in April 2014. Shortly after, the new Ukrainian government launched an "anti-terror operation" against its Russian-speaking citizens in Eastern Ukraine. 

For eight years leading up to Russia's invasion in 2022, Ukraine's government, with help from the CIA, relentlessly bombed Eastern Ukraine. Millions of innocent civilians were caught in the crossfire of a geopolitical chess match between Russia and the United States. 

This is part of the story often ignored by the Western press.

DJ, related [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Biden#Vice_presidency_(2009%E2%80%932017)[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Biden#Vice_presidency_(2009%E2%80%932017) ;

Biden said he intended to eliminate some explicit roles assumed by George W. Bush's vice president, Dick Cheney, and did not intend to emulate any previous vice presidency.[208] He was sworn in as the 47th vice president of the United States on January 20, 2009.[209] He was the first vice president from Delaware[210] and the first Roman Catholic vice president.[211][212]

DJ, biden wanted a war with Russia/Putin...

FLASH TRAFFIC.  URGENT.  Ukraine is claiming that several Regions of Western Ukraine (Galicia) are reportedly under Attack from Russian Loitering Munition/“Suicide” Drones were launched by the Armed Forces of Transnistria.

Transnistria is a self-declared independent enclave of Russians in eastern Moldova.  This week, they plan on asking Moscow to ANNEX Transnistria and protect them.

-








NO SLEEP TIL TRANSNISTRIA!! Video of a place most of you have probably never heard of.....

DJ, Transnistria comes up in "news" from time to time...IF !!!! Moldova and/or Ukraine would attack this small buffer area between these two countries it would give Russia an excuse to move into south-western Ukraine-Odessa region...There may be lots of (very old-soviet era ???) weapons in Transnistria Ukraine would like to have...

IF Ukraine attacks Transnistria it may be coordinated with NATO(members - Romania ?) to get NATO even more involved...

DJ-The basics; 

-Russia for now still "acting" as if they are fighting Ukraine

-NATO is getting more and more involved...soon may be openly fighting Russia

-F16's flying from Romania, Poland etc to attack Russian forces (in Ukraine or Russia) may "pull the trigger"...

-Black Sea operations may already be done by NATO-just put an Ukraine flag on it and it is an "Ukraine victory"...

DJ-I was hoping western countries-or people-would come to their senses...Only 20% of Ukrainians wanted Ukraine inside NATO still even "left wing" parties promote war...The "open door"...even "the Moon can join NATO" ....

Even all out involvement of NATO -at this moment- will NOT change the outcome of this NATO expansion war...Russia will NOT accept NATO this close to its borders....

The US would not accept Russian, Iran, Chineses ballistic missiles in Cuba, Mexico....

The "west" is destroying its economy...has "limited military means"...still western "leaders" keep pushing for more war...

------

When I look at China's reaction on Gaza China may have decided it may need to play a more "active" role...Iran is already involved in the Ukraine war -not only with drones but also via fighters...Because of the western ongoing support for the Gaza-genocide "the rest" now also start realizing the genocide that is happening in Ukraine-by Ukraine nazi's- to kill Russians...

You can not "support Gaza" but think "Ukraine is the good guy"....My view-both Palestine and Ukraine are frontlines in an escalating NATO (10% population) -BRICS+ (90%) rest of the world confrontation...

NATO defending neo-colonial "white mens rule" keeping the rest poor...

DJ- I am NOT neutral...I am against war...In "western media" being for peace you "are supporting both Putin and terrorism"....maybe that tells something of the total dereailment of "western media"...

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

🇵🇸🇺🇸 Hamas issued a statement about the death of the Aaron Bushnell, US army serviceman who set himself on fire in front of the Israeli embassy in Washington to protest the war crimes committed by the US and Israel in Gaza: 

In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful Press Statement We in the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) express our deepest condolences and our full solidarity with the family and friends of the American pilot Aaron Bushnell, whose name has been immortalized as a defender of human values and the oppression of the Palestinian people who are suffering because of the American administration and its unjust policies, as well as the American activist Rachel Corrie, who was crushed by a Zionist bulldozer in Rafah in In 2003, it is the same city that Bushnell paid with his life for putting pressure on his country’s government to prevent the criminal Zionist army from attacking it and committing massacres and violations there. 

The administration of US President Biden bears full responsibility for the death of US Army pilot Aaron Bushnell due to its policy that supported the Nazi Zionist entity in its war of extermination against our Palestinian people, as he gave his life in order to shed light on the Zionist massacres and ethnic cleansing against our people in the Gaza Strip. 

The heroic pilot, Aaron Bushnell, will remain immortal in the memory of our Palestinian people and the free people of the world, and a symbol of the spirit of global human solidarity with our people and their just cause. 

The tragic accident that cost Pilot Bushnell his life is an expression of the growing state of anger among the American people who reject their country’s policy that contributes to the killing and extermination of our people, and who reject their government’s violation of universal human values, by providing cover to ensure the impunity of the entity and its Nazi leaders from punishment and accountability.

DJ, During the nazi-occupation of Europe those fighting nazi-terror were called terrorists by the nazi-criminals...

NATO has been supporting genocide all over this planet since its start...defending neo-colonialism in the interest of the 0,1%...

You can NOT have a REAL democracy "at home" supporting dictators, terror in lots of other countries...

MOSCOW, February 27. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has called not to attach too much significance to EU conferences on Ukraine in Paris.

"The number of Western conferences is obviously growing. They are trying to offset the decreasing interest and dramatic drop in financial capabilities to maintain the Zelensky regime. The French and President [of France Emmanuel] Macron are overly enthusiastic about convening all sorts of events, caring little about their potential outcome. I would not attach too much significance to the conferences organized in Paris," he told a news conference, commenting on a European conference on Ukraine that was held in Paris on February 26.

Thus, he recalled that such events have never yielded any concrete results. As an example, he cited the Climate Change Conference in Paris in 2015, when Western countries promised to allocate some 100 billion US dollars a year to developing countries to ensure their energy transition within ten years. 

However, according to Lavrov, not more than 20 or 30 billion US dollars have been allocated for these purposes since then, while the sums going to Kiev are much bigger.

Macron said after a meeting in the Elysee Palace on February 26 that the participants had looked at sending ground troops to Ukraine. Although no consensus was reached on this topic, he did not rule out such a scenario in the future. 


The Paris conference on Ukraine was attended by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Polish President Andrzej Duda and prime ministers from around 20 EU countries. The United States was represented by US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs James O'Brien, and David Cameron represented the United Kingdom.

DJ...words are "easy" and with present western "leaders" often empty...

So -yes- NATO may seek further escalation...only it may have very limited means for escalation...The 90,000 NATO forces now in excersises in a.o. Poland could see over half a million extra Russian soldiers near Ukraine...

A western "action" in West Ukraine may result in Belarus getting involved...maybe spreading the -already unpopular- war to Poland, Baltics...for what ? 

For extra billions for the US war industry and its shareholders/donors ? So they can buy even more western "politicians" to promote "the need for" more war...

Even jens stoltenberg NATO "head" admiited the Ukraine war was a NATO expansion war...The extra 61 billion "US aid" mostly would end up in US pockets...

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

By now it should be clear there is a crisis in Kiev...a lot of Ukrainians NEVER !!!! wanted this war !!!!

Ukraine did see over 400,000 soldiers killed (Russia maybe around 80,000...also 20,000 Ukraine civilians got killed [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFO_LsStmuA[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFO_LsStmuA

Scott Ritter: Explaining Ukraine’s Military Failures

DJ, on the Russian side Putin has a support rate of 80% !!!! Most of the world does see NATO as the problem NOT Russia !!!

Again..the west is getting isolated...NOT Russia....

On top of the over two years of the Ukraine war NATO is also involved in the genocide in Palestine....the Gaza mass murder may have made most of the world waken up to "what the west has to offer" in defense of the US$ " rules based chaos"....

Western media, politics did forget the Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan wars....the NATO mass murders "fighting terror" while also sponsoring IS, alquaida etc...

YES Syria, Iran, even Russia, China may be far from perfect...but with 1-in-4 prisoners-worldwide- in US prisons one can hardly claim the US model still represents an "American dream"...the 40,000+ killed in US street violence may show more signs of a US civil war....

The west needs to rethink its position....

DJ, Lots of comments on France/macron calling for western/European soldiers getting (more) involved in Ukraine...

[url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/2024/02/france-wants-to-fight-in-ukraine.html[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/2024/02/france-wants-to-fight-in-ukraine.html in the story and comments some "suggestions" on why macron now wants to fight Russia...

-Dozens of French military volunteers "doing humanitarian work" got killed this year in Ukraine (Charkov 60+, Kherson military high tech "volunteers" at least 2...very likely also higher ranks did get killed). 

-Some comments linked Russia taking over French "exploitation" (a.o. in Niger, French mining companies mining gold and uranium to be shipped to France...Niger stayed poor..) in Africa...

-Only 17% of the French voters think macron is doing a decent job...farmers protests, other unrest...

Macron is freaking out over Ukraine collapse

DJ also mentioned "eurobonds"...the EU did invest billions into this crazy war...

Referencing an infamous French SS division from WW2, Zakharova further quipped: "Emmanuel, have you decided to form a Charlemagne deux (two) division to defend [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky’s bunker?"

But Moscow also warned of major direct conflict with the West. According to more from the Kremlin response: "The very fact of discussing the possibility of sending certain contingents to Ukraine from Nato countries is a very important new element…in that case, we would need to talk not about the probability, but about the inevitability (of a direct conflict)."

DJ...the last ss-division fighting in Berlin may 1945 was the "french" charlemagne (Charles the great) division...(no doubt a lot of these french ss-ers did fight further in Algeria, SE Asia/IndoChina colonial wars...A lot of dutch ss-ers ended up fighting the Indonesians 1945-49 then send to the Korea war 1950-53...I believe already in the 50's a Dutch army group came under NATO command of a german general who had fought for the wehrmacht...hitler army...Again...nazi-nato links are there to see...).

On Monday, MBS met with the speaker of the State Duma to “review the close relations between the Kingdom and Russia along with the prospects of parliamentary cooperation.”

DJ, also India sources claim zelensky may try to find a way out of the war (and survive...) The "official" western backed "peace plan" more or less demands Russia to surrender...No serious person can take such insanity as any basis for talks...MBS has shown to be VERY serious...he will not waste time...he does not need zelensky...

Saudi Arabia is a new BRICS+ member...the Asian economy is by far the largest economy in the world...Europe can be seen as an Asian peninsula...Ukraine can be usefull...

DJ-Macron/EU in panic may mean the US is taking its hands of Ukraine and zelensky may be going for a deal with Russia...From that perspective sending in European military may be meant -again (like bojo after Turkish deal april 2022) the west/EU this time trying to keep the war going...to get a better deal for European companies with interests in Ukraine natural resources ? (Coal, lithium..)

Israel’s war against Hamas in Gaza will help Israel’s economy rebound after the war, partly because its fresh experience of warfare is set to boost military technology sales, its economy minister said on Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a World Trade Organization Ministerial Conference in Abu Dhabi, Israel’s Economy and Industry Minister Nir Barkat said the war’s domestic impact on Israel was “not something Israel cannot bear mid to long term.”

He estimated the total cost at 150-200 billion shekels, or roughly $50 billion, regardless of the war’s duration.

DJ, since netanyahu is blocking a two-state solution BRICS may go for Palestine...remarkable an "israel minister" at an UAE/Abu Dhabi conference...








An hour ago, the Egyptian forces carried out an airdrop of aid north of the Nuseirat camp, specifically the Al-Zahraa area. The Zionist occupation burned it with phosphorus bombs.

DJ, A total boycot of "israel" may bring the zionist-extremists to their senses...

Panic Sweeps EU, Rus Advances, Ukr Troops Flee; Macron Urgent Talks, Wants EU Troops to Ukr; EU No

DJ, I totally DISagree with AM idea the battle front is deciding the outcome of the Ukraine-war...A few remarks;

-biden...if he wants any kind of chance for reelection needs to "finish" the wars in Ukraine and Palestine fast...

-biden and his "cult" may also believe they will get "a better deal" than a trump government will make

-Very likely biden-cult may be in indirect talks (via Saudi Arabia ???) to make a deal with Russia...zelensky only can accept...

-AM may be right on the "blame game" between the CIA and DoD/Pentagon...Ukraine is yet another US made military disaster...(and of course it never can be a politicians fault)..

-On top of the "Ukraine situation" Russia is kicking the US out of the Middle East, Russia also kicking out France from "Africa"...

-zelensky most likely knows the only real option is to "end the war" at the best available terms...Trying to "limit western interference" because the west is only interested in western interests...NOT in Ukraine interests...

DJ...BRICS+ may be growing its sphere of influence. China made an Iran and Saudi Arabia/UAE-deal...

One possibly new member for BRICS may be Algeria...west of Libya...Egypt-east of Libya already in BRICS..both may get China-Russian-Saudi help to "find a solution" for Libya...Nigeria may also be on a BRICS new member list..increasing BRICS influence both in Africa and energy...

-Could Ukraine "join BRICS+" ???? Maybe as a part of a larger agenda with a deal between BRICS and the EU...

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

Nuclear war risks...

-"israel" not very likely to use nuclear weapons against Hezbollah in southern Lebanon...it would also bring a lot of damage to "israel"...

-DJ-A nuclear attack on Iran may be something netanyahu could think of...maybe trying to create a nuclear explosion in a nuclear facility inside Iran...so "the world" would think Iran did cause the "nuclear incident" itself...

-zelensky (etc) may have had ideas of attacking nuclear installations in Russia or in Ukraine under Russian control...(or maybe even cause a nuclear incident inside an Ukraine nuclear plant and blame Russia for it...). In this-final-stage zelensky may try to stay alive...Maybe the best chance for survival may be as a Russian puppet by now...

-NATO troops moving into Ukraine "would be very unwelcome"...however it would NOT need a Russian nuclear reaction...It would "blow up" NATO/EU...

DJ-Integrated warfare would make western weapons much more effective than they are now in Ukraine hands...Coordinated infantery-tank-artillery-air force operations could put Russia in a crisis...However very likely such a western attack would bring in Russian allies...could see "unforseen" consequences all over the planet (A new Korean war ?)

Russian Air Supremacy Allows For Significant Russian Advances Along The Frontline Villages

DJ...there has been so far very limited news of Ukraine fighters fighting on the Russian side (The Donetsk and Luhansk "peoples republics" see themselves as Russian). But this could soon change...One of the things zelensky may try to avoid is the Ukraine military turning against him and his "club"...Ukraine soldiers did make threats of "going for Kiev" if they would not be released/get more supplies...

Again...Ukrainians voted for zelensky because he promissed making a peacedeal with Russia. zelensky may not be able to avoid presidential elections much longer...so "if he can make a peace deal" he may still hope to "survive"...

Will we soon see western helicopters evacuating "westerners" from embassies in Kiev...Ukrainians welcoming incoming Ukraine forces ending western "exploitation"...a Saigon-1975 scenario ?  It was NOT Ukraine that pushed for this war !!! Only 20% of Ukrainians wanted to join NATO !!!

It was biden punishing Putin for the trum-presidency...total insanity...Russio-phobia...underestimating the Russian reaction when NATO crossed the red line by going for Ukraine joining NATO and western support for a major Ukraine attack on Russians in eastern Ukraine (planned for february 2022...the Russian S.M.O. stopped that...). 

The outcome of this crazy confrontation politics is the west being much weaker than it was a few years ago...

"israel" now getting western weapons and Ukraine corruption-so money for defenselines was "gone" did speed up the Ukraine collapse now unfolding..

Very likely netanyahu may notice what "western support" brings...it may stop further "israel" agression...Even the US has its limits in what it can do for its proxy state...Maybe netanyahu also has contacted China to see what kind of diplomatic way out there may be ? Western diplomacy failure has sidelined the west...

My own speculations on peace-initiatives;

-Ukraine; make peace with Russia NOW-western Ukraine will remain part of Ukraine-Russia will take Charkov and Odessa anyway...The alternative for zelensky may be Poland, Hungary, Romania also taking western Ukraine...

-Palestine; If the "israelis" attack Rafah/Lebanon it may be the end of "israel"...BRICS+/Russia are in a position to guarantee "israel safety"...the "west" only has a limited offer for help..

The Transnistrian authorities will today appeal to Russia to take measures to protect Transnistria "in the context of growing pressure from Moldova."

DJ, western media make macrons story of western boots moving into Ukraine as "increasing pressure"...There have been "ideas" of second fronts against Russia. 

-Georgia does not want to get destroyed/end up between Russia in the north, Türkiye in the south...

-Moldova would love to join EU/NATO...at least the ruling elite...most Moldovans inside Moldova are pro-Russian...

A right-wing Israeli mob came to my family’s home yesterday to search for me, threatening close family members who fled to another town in the middle of the night. I am still getting death threats and had to cancel my flight home. 

This happened after Israeli media and German politicians absurdly labeled my Berlinale award speech - where I called for equality between Israelis and Palestinians, a ceasefire and an end to apartheid - as ‘antisemitic’. 

The appalling misuse of this word by Germans, not only to silence Palestinian critics of Israel, but also to silence Israelis like me who support a ceasefire that will end the killing in Gaza and allow the release of the Israeli hostages - empties the word antisemitism of meaning and thus endangers Jews all over the world. 

As my grandmother was born in a concentration camp in Libya and most of my grandfather’s family was murdered by Germans in the holocaust, I find it particularly outraging that German politicians in 2024 have the audacity to weaponize this term against me in a way that endangered my family. 

But above all else, this behavior puts Palestinian co-director Basel Adra’s life in danger, who lives under a military occupation surrounded by violent settlements in Masafer Yatta. 

He is in far greater danger than I am. I’m happy our award winning film, No Other Land, is sparking an important international debate on this issue - and I hope that millions of people watch it when it comes out this year. Sparking a conversation is why we made it. 

You can have harsh criticism of what me and Basel said on stage without demonizing us. If this is what you’re doing with your guilt for the holocaust - I don’t want your guilt.

DJ...zionist extremists terrorizing israeli citizens with western support...crazy !

At this point a ceasefire literally equals standing against the intentional starving of helpless children. Israel is very openly using starvation as a weapon. Imagine being the sort of person who stands for continuing to deny food to children.

Ryan Dawson : WAR FOR PROFIT - The Military Industrial Complex

Join Judge Andrew Napolitano in a thought-provoking conversation with #RyanDawson as they delve deep into the intricate web of the Military Industrial Complex and its detrimental impact on society. In this discussion, we uncover the profit-driven motives behind perpetual wars and the collusion between government entities and defense contractors. Gain valuable insights into the complexities of global conflicts and the role of corporate interests in shaping foreign policy. Don't miss this crucial dialogue on the realities of war and its consequences for humanity. 

DJ...history repeating itself..."We" were fighting Russia 80 years ago...Only then "we" were nazi-forces from all over Europe...The german war-machine "boomed"...with the Ford-tank factory in Cologne -part of GM- NOT being bombed...ME-109 fighter planes till 1937 having RollsRoyce engines...

Today we have political-criminals claiming "war is good for the economy"...people "investing" in Lockheed-Martin, Raytheon etc. making money out of war...Most of the 61 billion US "aid" for Ukraine -now discussed- never will leave the US...Only move from public-tax payers funded-debt to private pockets of the very rich...

"Western civilization" has been killing all over the globe in the interest mostly of a rich elite...in fact for hundreds of years...

However the scale of western made wars did explode under biden...

It is Kiev behind the scenes, through Western curators, that puts pressure on Chisinau in the case of unfreezing the military conflict.

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transnistria_War[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transnistria_War November 1990-july 1992 ethnic Russians in the former Soviet republic of Moldova created their own republic. 

NATO has been pushing for more fronts...Transnistria is in between Moldova and Ukraine...Moldovans living in the west -so outside Moldova-did vote for a pro-western government. Moldovans inside Moldova mainly are pro-Russian...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moldovan_protests_(2022%E2%80%932023)[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moldovan_protests_(2022%E2%80%932023) 

NATO and EU may welcome Moldova as a new member if Moldova would attack Transnistria...once part of Moldova. Ukraine -no doubt- willing to help...It could result in a civil war in Moldova...so Romanian-NATO forces may move in...Romania may even be willing to annex Moldova...it lost that part after 1945...Romania was a nazi-ally...

EU war economy utopia, Eurobonds and direct taxes

DJ, The Duran claiming the EU is pushing for EU-tax, an EU-army etc...part of the -complex- story is EU member states "dumping" matters they find difficult to deal with on a national level at the EU...So the EU has to make rules for "green farmers"...national governments can hide behind the EU...Using the EU as a national excuse for postponing hard decissions..."we have to decide this on a European level" ...Then the EU can not solve it -ping-pong back to national governments...

Building a war economy may take decades...not just months...However it underlines wars that are NEVER won on the battlefields but in factories, logistics etc. 

"israel" in crisis can see supplies getting air lifted from NATO "partners" (like Ukraine "israel" in many ways is integrated in NATO-as a non-NATO member...The US has a basis inside "israel"...).

Al-Qassam Blows Up Israeli Soldiers Caught Inside Booby-trapped Gaza Building

A commander of the Al-Qassam Brigades has told Al Jazeera that Hamas fighters are managing the battle in the Zeitoun neighbourhood near Khan Younis city in southern Gaza. Hamas also released a video showing high-intensity clashes between its fighters and the Israel Army in the area a day after the IDF said it lost two soldiers. The soldiers were reportedly killed by an explosion inside a booby-trapped building in northern Gaza

DJ, NATO-proxy "israel" is losing the war in Gaza...It killed close to 30,000 people-most civilians..It may have killed several thousend Hamas "fighters"...only Hamas and other groups fighting occupation, Palestinian self-defence, now may have thousends of volunteers willing to fight..

For NATO/"israel" a few major problems;

-Palestinians know the area...every street, building..

-Palestinian fighters have the full support of the Palestine/Gaza population

-There is a major underground network (in part build by "israel" when it was under "israel occupation") Hamas etc. know how to use...

-Palestinians can be fighters one moment-civilian the next moment...they live there !!!

-Since the extreme zionists want to kill "all Arabs" Palestinians themselves are very motivated..

-Arab countries may stay out of the war but "support Palestine" 

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_involving_Israel#Table[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_involving_Israel#Table To put things in perspective..."Iron Swords" is a disaster...Making matters even worse is "israel" also keeps attacking Lebanon, Syria...[url]https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2024/02/28/720986/Syria-Israel-airstrike-Damascus[/url] or https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2024/02/28/720986/Syria-Israel-airstrike-Damascus ;

The Syrian military reportedly confronts an Israeli airstrike on a suburb of the Arab country's capital of Damascus.

The act of aggression was carried out on Wednesday from the direction of the country's Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, the official Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported, citing a military source.

DJ, "israel" attacking Iran-bases in Syria...trying to provoke a (major) attack to get NATO support for a war with Iran...

[url]https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2024/02/28/720988/German-warship-attacks-United-States-Reaper-drone-Yemen-Red-Sea-Israel-Gaza-war[/url] or https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2024/02/28/720988/German-warship-attacks-United-States-Reaper-drone-Yemen-Red-Sea-Israel-Gaza-war ;

A German warship partaking in a European anti-Yemen coalition in the Red Sea has mistakenly opened fire on an American MQ-9 Reaper drone, reports say.

German media outlets carried the reports on Monday, describing the attack as a friendly fire incident.

According to Germany's Der Spiegel weekly, the warship fired two missiles at the aircraft, but both the projectiles crashed into the sea because of "a technical defect."

DJ...again...western "military action" is very expensive...further worsening western debts/economic crises...

Both Ukraine and "israel" are "sinking"....the west better come up with better plans !
