On this day a year ago
In case anyone was wondering which village has just lost its idiot: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10720313/Armed-forces-minister-warns-Britain-chemical-agent-used-Ukraine.html.
James Heappey said the Russian president is wrong if he thinks a response to him using banned weapons would require a Nato vote.”
This is the aforesaid idiot, a passed-over ex-officer (left Army after 10 years with the courtesy rank of major), now posing as great military expert and strategist: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Heappey.
I am beginning to think that it is only a matter of time before deadheads of the James Heappey type get the UK into a war —by any other name— with Russia, a state which has, we are told, 6,200 nuclear weapons, mostly missiles (the UK, apparently, has about 25).
All that potential misery, pain, and death for the people of the UK (not to mention the end of the UK as a functioning state), and why? Because idiots of the Heappey type want to virtue-signal about Ukraine, a corrupt and shambolic “failed state” that, as a state, has only existed for 30 years, and with which the UK is not, and never has been, allied.
Behind all the “stand with Ukraine” stuff is a collection of familiar evils: Conservative and Labour Friends of Israel, the New World Order cabals etc.
Yesterday, persecuted satirist Alison Chabloz was sentenced to a very harsh 22 weeks in prison (11 weeks actually incarcerated), not far from the maximum 26 weeks. All because some peculiar Jewish woman made a complaint about Alison’s reworking of a Lionel Bart song from the musical, Oliver!
Meanwhile, a bully who attacked an Indian waiter, which bully was with a pack of other boors, and who had a previous conviction for a similar offence, was let off by a Crown Court judge with a modest fine. See https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10719775/Businessman-sprayed-Asian-man-fire-extinguisher-racially-aggravated-offence-spared-jail.html.
Don’t mistake me: speaking generally, I do not want the “blacks and browns” to be in the UK, but that sort of rowdiness and bullying cannot be tolerated, yet is, effectively. Also, how is it that the sentencing judge seems to have taken the defendant’s drunkenness at the material time as a mitigating factor?! Surely wrong, even if the trial was in Newcastle…
Actually, that Newcastle sentencing does show what nonsense the whole “aggravation” based on “racial hostility” is. The defendant should have been given a stiff sentence for his behaviour regardless of any racial hostility. The UK must start to stamp down on bad behaviour committed in public.
My main purpose in putting the report on the blog, however, was to show, by contrast, how harsh was the Alison Chabloz sentence yesterday.
Of course, in the Newcastle case, the victim was Indian or something similar, whereas the (alleged) victim in the Alison Chabloz case was Jewish.
One reason, perhaps several reasons, why there is no “Parliamentary road” for social nationalism in the UK, though if there were a suitable —or any— movement, a political party would have to be part of that, and might stand candidates.
A few days ago on this blog, I predicted that, were Russian ships hit and sunk in the Black Sea, it would trigger a massive escalation from the Russian side. So it has transpired.
What puzzles me is that Russia has now attacked a missile factory in the Kiev area, a factory which apparently produces such missiles. My puzzlement is “why only now?” I should have thought that such a place would be a priority target.
I think that Putin basically does not want to hit Kiev, and especially the central and historic central parts, too badly. Not only for public relations reasons, but also because he sees Moscow and Kiev as the two founding cities of the Russian people, of which the Ukrainians are a sort-of detached part.
Historically, that is correct, in that Kiev was the foundation city of Kievan Rus, after the Vikings (Varangians) moved their capital to the (thought to have been already long-existent) city from Novgorod, in the 9th Century. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kievan_Rus%27. Moscow was only founded in the 12th Century, as far as is known.
Whatever the exact truth of the early history, the fact remains that Kiev was tied to Moscow from mediaeval times, economically and, from the 17th Century, politically.
In the Soviet period, meaning effectively from the mid-1920s to the early 1990s, Kiev was the third-largest city, after Moscow and Leningrad, and ahead of both Tashkent and Novosibirsk.
What that all means is, I think, that Putin would much prefer not to flatten Kiev (as he could).
I see the attack on the Kiev factory as, to put it in naval terms, “a shot across the bow” of the Kiev regime. If it is true that the UK and/or USA are now supplying anti-ship missiles to the Kiev regime, then an attack on an existing factory in Ukraine will not affect that.
Russian forces have now taken Mariopol/Mariupol, and are apparently succeeding in the ghastly attritional battles of the south and southeast.
As I have blogged recently, the strategy seems to be to advance from Kharkov area to the south, and from the southern coastal areas towards the general area of Kharkov, through or past Zaporozhye and Dnipro/Dnepropetrovsk; so drawing a line broadly North/South.
Anywhere east of that line will, before too long, be taken and occupied by Russian forces. Any Ukrainian forces within that sector, short on fuel, ammunition, and even food, will be forced to surrender.
I cannot see Putin negotiating at all (seriously), certainly not until he controls most of Ukraine east of the Dnieper below Kiev, as well as along the southern coasts.
I am convinced that Putin does not want to destroy Kiev and Odessa, but am equally convinced that he will, if forced into a corner.
On a more general level of speculation, how safe are the huge naval ships in the orders of battle of the UK, USA, China etc? Are they also just vulnerable floating targets, when faced with the anti-ship missiles now being produced?
Jew-Zionists, who recoil in horror if someone in the UK dares to sing a funny song about them, and then uploads it to YouTube or wherever…
