ERIC ZUESSE—Here is a news-report about one of the U.S.-backed-and-funded ‘Neo-Nazi’ (i.e.: racist-fascist) organizations’ training-camp for Ukrainian children. (Where it says “A young boy holds a mock weapon and creeps behind a wooden fence as he takes part in drills at the summer camp” this “wooden fence” is shown festooned with German Nazi Party insignia but the right-wing newspaper makes no note of, nor comment about, that incredibly significant fact.) This is a multi-generational operation by the CIA going all the way back to its founding in 1947, by Harry Truman, warping FDR’s ww2-only OSS against the German nazis — against the Nazi Party, the original nazis — to become instead the newly-created U.S. regime’s coup-and-subversion machine, to grab control ultimately over the Soviet Union and now Russia, so as to achieve the world’s first all-encompassing empire. Carlson and Fridman appear to be ignorant of all of that history. Not only is Putin rational to be determined to denazify Ukraine but he’d be derelict in his duties to the Russian nation if he weren’t.
ALEKS—To be clear, I’m not from the military. Nevertheless, I know a lot of people personally who have served. Considering the interest of many people about how villages or towns are usually taken, I’ve decided to write what I’ve learned from people who were intensively involved in assault operations.
As we all know from Carl von Clausewitz: “War is a continuation of politics by other means.”
What does it have to do with storming a town? A lot. There are many ways to capture a town held by the enemy, like siege, destruction, invasion, political pressure, etc.
The chosen method is determined by the available means and political objectives. This leads us back to Clausewitz’s quote.
OLIVER BOYD-BARRETT—The effete leaders of the Western World stubbornly persist in repeating all their mistakes. So, knowing that their obsessive craving for a sanctions regime that might work the way they think it should work is actually a rather pathetic delusion which only makes Russia more independent and more prosperous than ever, and which diminishes Western trade and profitability and pushes up the cost of energy for Western industry and is right now pushing Europe into recession and deindustrialization, what do they do? Even the IMF has told Washington and Europe that its sanctions packages are counterproductive.
EDITOR—Laith reminds the audience that Israel appears committed to a reckless expansion of the war and that the Zionists are not only bombing Lebanon, but recently completely destroyed the South African embassy in Damascus as payback for its dragging Israel before the ICJ.
SIMPLICIUS—What the above post is saying is, instead of using the new brigades to open up a new direction on Russia’s weaker flanks to the north, Syrsky instead threw the brigades directly into the center of battle. This was corroborated by a new video showing what is purported to be a 3rd ‘Azov’ Brigade MaxPro MRAP taking mortar fire precisely near the center of the AKHZ Coke Plant.
