On this day a year ago
Ukraine and Putin, Russia and China
“There is no intelligence that Vladimir Putin is unstable or in bad health, the director of the CIA has said.
There has been increasing unconfirmed media speculation that Mr Putin, who turns 70 this year, may be suffering from ill health, possibly cancer.“
In other words the Western “Judenpresse” has been pumping out its usual horseshit…
As far as the war is concerned, no big changes. However, with the supply of further long-range missiles by the USA to the Kiev regime, the logic surely points to greater and more destructive escalation. This is a race which the Kiev regime cannot win, certainly not alone, bearing in mind that Russia is not only a nuclear power but a nuclear power whose capabilities in that respect are advancing.
As far as the present battlefield is concerned, the Russian forces will be looking to consolidate gains in the area east of the Dnieper river, and particularly in the Donbass, before advancing further.
Meanwhile, Gorbachev (91 now, and in very poor health) has been for some time talking, via a trusted spokesman:
“In recent years President Vladimir Putin grew increasingly insistent that NATO is encroaching close to Russia‘s borders, and uses the possibility of Ukraine joining the military alliance as one of his many ‘justifications’ for invading.
Gorbachev said Washington grew ‘arrogant and self-confident’ after the collapse of the Soviet Union, leading to the expansion of the NATO military alliance.
‘How can one count on equal relations with the United States and the West in such a position?’ Gorbachev told state news agency RIA Novosti in December 2021, on the eve of the anniversary of his resignation as the leader of the USSR.
He noted the ‘triumphant mood in the West, especially in the United States’ after the Soviet Union ceased to exist in 1991. ‘They grew arrogant and self-confident. They declared victory in the Cold War,’ Gorbachev said.
He insisted that it was ‘together’ that Moscow and Washington pulled the world out of confrontation and the nuclear race. ‘No, the ‘winners’ decided to build a new empire. Hence the idea of NATO expansion,’ Gorbachev added.”
Russia was already on the back foot after NATO [NWO] expansion since the early 1990s and still continuing. The invasion of Ukraine was a response to that, but at the same time triggered yet more and overt NATO encroachment.
Compare that situation to what China has been doing. Following the famous dictum of Sun-Tzu, “to win without war is the supreme excellence“, China has been encroaching on the territory of not only Russia (mainly in (far-) Eastern Siberia, in the former Soviet Far East region) but also Western Europe, as well as throughout Eastern Asia and into Western Europe and even Australasia. Not by force but by guile, though.
Look around you in, say, the UK. Chinese people everywhere, in huge numbers. They are (all but a handful) not “Chinese agents” in the obvious sense. It is at one more straightforward, yet also more sophisticated, than that. Their numbers steadily increase, as does Chinese influence generally.
China thinks in millennia, not in terms of the next few years, or the next election, as is common in the West. It will be recalled that someone, I think Pat Nixon, asked Chou en-Lai, at dinner in the Great Hall of the People in Peking in 1972, what he thought of the French Revolution of 1789. The now-famous response was “it is too early to say“.
It does not matter whether Mrs Nixon’s question was either or both sincere and her own or, as I suspect, origined in the US State Department. The response is what is of importance.

The USA has supplanted the Imperial Russia of 1914 as “a colossus on legs of straw”, “ruled” by men of straw.
Kamala Harris— non-European (or only partly so). Righi Sunak— non-European. Is there a connection at this time, something to do with the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan?
Of course, it is not yet certain that Sunak will become Prime Minister of the UK; we shall see.

Of course, those pushing that agenda the hardest are far from “owning nothing”; indeed, they possess not only millions of pounds or US dollars, but billions, tens of billions, even hundreds of billions— the hypocrites: Bill Gates and his ex-wife, Jeff Bezos, Branson, bonehead “Bono”, The Harry Formerly Known as Prince (and the “Royal” Mulatta) etc.
