Diary Blog, 25 April 2022, including “thinking the unthinkable” a little

Morning music

[Wilanow Palace, near Warsaw]

On this day a year ago

Seen somewhere or other…

At church this morning people who never come to church, arrived with their newly delivered pet Ukrainian refugees in tow. Actual real ones surprisingly, two white women.

Far more than is normal, the church reeked of sanctimony and confected compassion as a result. As you imagine, the prayers of intercession were unctuous and insufferable.

The two women reminded me of the Ukrainian girl in Derry girls; Miserable, taciturn, unimpressed, ungrateful. 

However, God, who was clearly fed up with this appalling show of cod virtue, intervened. At coffee afterwards one of the Ukrainians said that the war need never have started and that Zelensky was a cocaine addict and a crook. The second Ukrainian piped up and offered that the war was caused by the E.U. and that Zelensky should have surrendered on day one. I have never seen such crestfallen faces since the Brexit vote was announced. 

Asked how they had escaped they said without hesitation; “The Russians got us out”.

To add insult to injury, a few more MSM myths were put to sleep and a sombre and deflated congregation was left somewhat bereft. Thanks be to God: It was wonderful to behold his works at hand.”

Provenance unknown, but it has the ring of truth.

I have met relatively few Ukrainians, but a few were of the sort mentioned. Others, however, were very different.

An old couple on a train in south-east Poland in December 1988, the husband of the couple with several gold teeth, and both talking in broken Russian at me, beaming happily through their fairly obvious poverty.

Another was a charming girl, Lena, who worked as a receptionist at the British Embassy in Almaty (Kazakhstan), where I lived in 1996-1997 (until the late 1990s, Kazakhstan had many minority populations, the result of deportations during the time of Stalin).

The number two man at the Embassy, the Second Secretary (the Ambassador was also the First Secretary), a Basil Fawlty lookalike, had (I heard) proposed marriage to that receptionist, but despite having gone to Surrey (I think Surrey; maybe Hampshire) with him to meet his parents, she declined his offer in the end.

After my time in Almaty was over, I heard that that young woman had died, still in her mid or late twenties, of cancer. Very sad. As for the said Second Secretary of the British Embassy, he returned to London and was, not very long after that, in the late 1990s, appointed H.M. Ambassador to Rwanda.

I enjoyed reading that piece above.

Thinking the unthinkable

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/apr/25/us-diplomats-to-return-to-ukraine-and-fresh-military-aid-unveiled-after-blinken-visit

We see now that the USA (meaning NWO/ZOG) has been continuing with its post-Soviet strategy of weakening Russia to the point that Russia can never again be regarded as a “superpower”, and beyond that weakness to a point where the USA is the only superpower and can dictate terms in every area to Russia (and the rest of the world).

That State Department paper, first leaked in the 1990s, is clearly still the basis, no longer hidden, of US policy in the foreign affairs area.

Russia has one obvious trump card, as had the Soviet Union or, as British diplomats used to call it, “Upper Volta with rockets“.

However shambolic the Soviet Union was in some respects, no-one doubted that most of its long-range missile and inter-continental ballistic missiles [ICBMs] worked. They could be launched, they might be launched and, if they were, most would reach their targets.

The same is true of the unsatisfactory, ideology-deficient Russia of 2022.

Forget the froth about Jew oligarchs’ mega-yachts and travel restrictions, forget the Moscow middle classes losing their jobs and lifestyles. All that scarcely touches deep Russia. In fact, the economic sanctions may actually help the poorer Russians, in that, if Russia finds it hard to export, then whatever is produced will cost less on the domestic market. I mean the things the bulk of Russians need on an everyday basis, such as food, construction materials etc.

Russia still has those missiles. They still work, most of them, as has been seen in Ukraine, where various kinds of missiles have been used (mostly launched from Russia or from under the surface of the sea). They have reached their targets and have detonated, most of them.

The USA, UK and general Western leaderships are determined (under the direction of the secret ruling circles of NWO/ZOG) to keep funnelling arms to the Kiev regime. Britain (Boris-idiot) is even going to send Challenger tanks, we read in the msm.

It seems that the NWO/ZOG rulers of the UK, USA etc are willing to do anything, whatever it takes, not even only to defend the Jew-Zionist regime in Kiev, but also to bleed Russia dry as it attempts to continue to prosecute this invasion and/or war.

There seems to be an assumption that Russia will either give up, returning to pre-2022 boundaries, or will continue with the war of attrition until —if it succeeds— it controls Ukraine south of Kiev, east of the Dnieper and, in the south, to a line maybe 100 miles north of the Black Sea and Sea of Azov.

The latter situation was, and remains, my assumption too: Russian occupation of eastern and southern Ukraine, eventually leading to occupation of both Kiev and Odessa.

However, what if, under increasing pressure from the Western allies (mainly USA and UK), Russia, meaning Putin, feels that it cannot achieve those limited objectives? What if Russian forces are, or are in danger of, truly “losing” this war, of being pushed back behind Russia’s pre-2022, 2014, or even 2012 frontiers? What if that were to happen, and the Ukrainian proxies were to continue to build up their strength with Western help, and on a massive scale? Moscow is only 500 miles from Kiev, and only 300 miles from Ukrainian territory at the nearest point.

At present, Putin ‘s forces are increasing the damage to Ukraine’s infrastructure and logistical capability, using more powerful but still conventional (non-nuclear) weapons. There will surely be a surge in Russian troop numbers and deployments as well. Those, together, might break the Kiev regime. If not, there would still remain the ghastly possibility of the use of tactical or battlefield nuclear weapons.

How far any tactical use of nuclear weapons could go before the war spilled over into Poland, a NATO power, is uncertain. Radioactivity might cross borders, but even without that, could this war be contained within the borders of Ukraine? I do not know.

How far can Russia be pushed? How far can NATO accept Russian advances or gains before NATO gets involved directly? I do not know.

Beyond even that horrific possibility, what if Putin and those with actual command and control decide to go for broke, to change the game completely, to change the international order completely, and perhaps to emerge stronger but 200 years later? What if the “big red button” (so to speak) is pushed?

The fact is that Russia has 6,200 nuclear weapons (we are told), most of them missiles, most of them said to be operational. Even if we discount that by half or three-quarters, and leave a notional 1,500 long-range and inter-continental missiles available, that gives the Russian leadership a very big stick.

Should Russia launch a nuclear strike on the USA and UK using say 500 missiles (after all Russia’s eagle looks both ways, and China is still there), and even if “only” 10% of such missiles detonate on target, that is still, say, 50 missiles, that means Goodbye Britain, almost entirely, even if only 10 missiles hit.

It also means that the USA might suffer, at least, say 40 hits on major installations and cities.

Let’s say that the top 10 cities —by population or other significance— are wiped out: Washington DC, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, Phoenix, Philadelphia, maybe Dallas, San Francisco, San Diego. Also, 30 other strikes: maybe Silicon Valley, San Fernando Valley, Imperial Valley (which produces a very high percentage of the US’s fruits and vegetables), Seattle, Palo Alto, and other hi-tech centres.

On the more obviously military and naval side, there might be strikes on CIA headquarters, Langley (near Washington DC), on major naval ports, on command and control centres, on Fort Bragg, Fort Meade, Fort Dietrich.

Could American society survive such an attack? I think not, looking at the sluggish response to, say, Hurricane Katrina etc. The USA would only recover after 100-200 years.

Russia’s major cities and centres of military power would also be hit and destroyed in such a ghastly scenario, but the core Russian people, out in the country, would still be there, probably, living on a basic level.

This is a path down which the world should not go. The West should not have started to re-arm the Kiev regime; it should certainly not continue to build up the power of the Zelensky regime. The main sufferers are the Ukrainian civilians and their companion animals. The West should have let Russia take the south and east, in effect.

There seems to be the belief in the Western power-circles that Putin would not launch a strategic nuclear attack because Russia would also suffer. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutual_assured_destruction. Very logical. Trouble is, people are not always logical. As a matter of fact, is it logical in the first place? One side might just say “yes we both get hit, but 200 years down the line, we will be pre-eminent, and the other side not“…

MAD, but not as we know it, if you like.

Late thought

” [After the end of the American Civil War, Robert E.] Lee also expressed his “willingness that blacks should be educated, and … that it would be better for the blacks and for the whites.” Lee forthrightly opposed allowing blacks to vote: “My own opinion is that, at this time, they [black Southerners] cannot vote intelligently, and that giving them the [vote] would lead to a great deal of demagogism, and lead to embarrassments in various ways.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_E._Lee].

I suppose that most of my blog readers imagine that I oppose blacks, or the majority of blacks, voting in the UK. They are not wrong if that is their guess, but where my blog readers may be surprised is that I regard the majority of white English people presently around no differently. They too rarely have the education, life experience, or native intelligence to make an informed choice.

Of course, the fact that the (pseudo-democratic) System puts up mainly very inferior persons as candidates for political office makes the situation worse.

It is not solely a question of education, nor even intelligence, but also of general level of soul, and of to what extent their mentalities have been poisoned by a corrupt msm.

Frankly, the general level of white English people in the UK now is little better than that of the “blacks and browns” living here.

        I, along with Western analysts, and Putin himself, seem to have over-estimated Russian military capabilities in February/March. However, I now wonder whether the reason the Russian forces performed so poorly in February and March is because the most capable formations were and still are being kept back for use later and elsewhere. That does not, of course, explain why the Russian General Staff performed so poorly.

  2. With regard to the old Challenger II tanks which the fat lying turd, Johnson / Kamal, wishes to send to Poland so that the Poles can send their old ‘T-series’ tanks to Ukraine, it’s unlikely that the Poles would even want them. Poland has a contract with the U.S. to be supplied with the newest version of the Abrahams MBT. They’re not going to want the incompatible and obsolete Challenger IIs. How are they going to maintain them? The only thing that the Poles would use them for would be for target practice on the firing range, using the newly delivered Abrahams.

    It just goes to show how deluded and out-of-touch with reality the fat lying turd really is.

      1. Sorry for the delayed response.

        It’s not that the Challenger IIs are useless, it’s more a matter of compatibility. The Challenger IIs are the only tanks operated by a NATO member to use a rifled barrel. The Challenger III uses a smooth bore gun (with other significant modifications) – manufactured in Germany, of course – which brings them into line with other NATO members. The ammunition for the rifled barrel is very limited and is being discontinued. In addition, there will be limited supplies of spare parts for the out-of-date Challenger IIs. Therefore, they will be useless in terms of combat as they will just break down, run out of compatible ammunition and spares very quickly. Plus, you’d have to train Polish tank technicians to drive, run, and maintain them. It’s just not worth it all.

        It just goes to show – as if the mountains of available evidence wasn’t sufficient – that Johnson / Kamal is just a ‘fly by the seat of his pants’ fantasist. Such people are very, very dangerous in such already incendiary political circumstances.

    1. If only the fat , constantly lying, virulently anti-British turd (I use another pithy adjective to describe him but this is a family oriented blog) had just done the decent thing and died in 2020 then thousands of decent British people would still be alive and this country would be in a better state and perhaps not facing the prospect of being wiped out by Russian nukes.

      But then to someone who needlessly slaughtered tens of thousands through his blatant libertarian extremist ignorance and total stupidity and calling for the, “bodies to be piled high” the deaths of potentially millions in a nuclear Armageddon no doubt doesn’t disturb him one iota so long as he and his equally thick, completely selfish and useless cabinet along with his hoe are ok.

      Boris is a terminally stupid and useless utter arsehole.

      If there was any justice in this world he and his cabinet would be summarily executed by a firing squad or a long drop hanging for all the needless deaths and misery they have caused in this country.

    2. I used to think the Defence Secretary was the single cabinet minister with some form of working brain cells or any degree of basic competence but now I am not so sure. Ben Wallace thinks Russia should not just leave Ukraine but also hand over Crimea. He should know there is not the remotest possibility of that happening and nor should it really seeing as Crimea is basically a detached part of Russia with a population that is overwhelmingly Russian speaking, sharing Russian culture etc. Basically, Crimea is ethnically Russian just like the Sudetenland was German which was the reason Neville Chamberlain was not willing to involve this country in a conflict with Germany over it and rightly so.

  3. Just a few of those new intercontinental missiles Russia has very recently tested (I believe they are of HYPERSONIC speed and not able to be intercepted) would be enough to shatter this country into tiny fragments into the sea and kill all human life here but Boris doesn’t give a damm about that so long as he can prance around the world stage and play his cheap Poundshop Churchill routine.

      I can only agree. A nuclear conflict in which the UK would be a kind of shield or decoy for the USA would leave this still-lovely (in part) island, or collection of islands, irradiated, blasted, utterly ruined, and in utter misery. What price then the pseudo-machismo of “pro-Ukrainian” newspaper letters pages correspondents, Twitter-twits, and MPs without any brain?

        Only a globalist idiot like Boris thinks that if Britain was nuked as a result of this US power game that the US would particularly care about our fate. They wouldn’t but our stupid politicians are still beguiled by the so-called ‘Special Relationship’.

  5. It really is high time our terminally ignorant and stupid politicians from all the globalist parties understood that our perspective on borders and which ethnic group belongs in which state is likely to be very different from that of people living in Continental Europe including Russia.

    Their borders have been in a state of flux for centuries ie (just one example) Germany which has only been a unified state since about 1860. This experience of Continental Europeans is vastly different from our own. Our state of the United Kingdom has had its borders formed by the sea with only one real change in a century namely that of the 26 counties of what is now the Republic of Ireland (on another island) seceding in 1922 from the then United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.

    Are their any advisors/ diplomats/civil servants in the Foreign Office with the most basic knowledge about our ‘near abroad’ is Continental Europe?

      I fear that the FCO has gone the way of most of the formerly British institutions over the past few decades. Look at the present “HM Ambassador” to Ukraine— a scruffy Jewish woman.

      As you say, the borders within mainland Europe have been changed many times over the past 150 years (and, indeed, before then). Not only Germany became unitary, but Italy. Poland and Germany have very different borders today, as compared to 1939 or 1914. Same is true of Austria, Hungary, Romania etc.

      The changes, socio-political, within countries, have also been huge, and in that respect at least the UK is no different.
