SIMPLICIUS THE THINKER provides an exhaustive analysis of the situation in the Ukraine War at the moment Kiev continues to talk about an offensive—largely for p.r. reasons— and the West looks for an exit ramp or some viable manner to keep the conflict going indefinitely, without having to concede defeat.
AMONG THE TOPICS DISCUSSED:
• The West’s elites complete disconnection from reality and criminal indifference to the lot of ordinary people
• The effects of having the West/US controlled by a corrupt “Bubble” of self-perpetuating privileged and ultra-wealthy insiders.
• How rotten leadership is inevitable under an advanced capitalist regime (imperialism)
• Realities of the Ukraine war, the Russian options

It’s noteworthy that the world elites would not be able to impose any kind of new order in the world without the collaboration of the US elites.

ERIC ZUESSE—Putin was telling the EU’s leaders that what has been forcing gas-prices in Europe up 300% since Russia’s February 24th invasion of Ukraine isn’t Russia’s invasion of Ukraine (such as they allege) but instead the U.S.-EU-UK economic sanctions against Russia which have caused all U.S.-and-allied — including all EU — nations to terminate imports of fuels from Russia. He was saying that Russia will turn on the pipelines into the EU as soon as EU leaders turn off their sanctions that prohibit their businesses and consumers from buying it.
