This is just mad

Britain’s top army general has told his troops to prepare to fight and beat Putin’s armies in a European land war, it has emerged tonight.

General Sir Patrick Sanders, who assumed overall command of the British Army this week, warned soldiers ‘we are the generation that must prepare the Army to fight in Europe once again’ as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine rocks global stability.

[Daily Mail]

One is tempted to wonder whether the General had had a little too much Blackstrap (cognac/port mixture, not the rum of the same name) in the officers’ mess.

Look at the readers’ comments appended to that Daily Mail article. Most are scathing about both the perceived “need” to fight Russia and the actual ability of the UK to do so, bearing in mind that Britain was scarcely able to bomb Libya a decade ago, needing French and Italian assistance.

The British Army is somewhere around 70,000 “soldiers” (at present being reduced from 80,000+ to 72,000, officially, but in reality well under strength). A tenth are women. About three-quarters are rear-echelon forces. That leaves (roughly; I am sure that military buffs will correct me) 15,000-20,000 actual or potential fighting soldiers.

The Russian Army exceeds a million active troops. Yes, some are of poor quality; so are many of those in the British Army! Never more so than today. In the British Army, drunkenness and drug abuse are common (admittedly, the former has been known in the recent and historical past!), and the Army has had to lower its physical-condition entry standards for enlistment.

In reality, any “war with Russia” involving the UK would have the British in a role serving as very junior partners to the massive US forces.

To be frank, the British Army is in no state to take on any opponent at present, unless a very backward black/brown enemy (and that would not happen now anyway for several reasons, including the “lift” capacity of the RAF being very limited).

Quality usually trumps quantity, but I see few indications now that Russian troops are hugely below the British level. The newspapers have just reported that the very same general has barred some of the supposedly best troops (reportedly from 3 Para) from being sent on exercise or deployment, after disgraceful goings-on in their Essex barracks: see https://www.itv.com/news/anglia/2022-06-09/armed-forces-minister-sorry-and-embarrassed-over-alleged-sex-video; https://www.itv.com/news/anglia/2022-06-18/para-regiment-dropped-from-overseas-operations-after-alleged-sex-video.

Armies reflect the societies from which they recruit. Britain is subsumed in decadence at present.

As a matter of fact, that general, busy moving his painted regiments on a painted map of Eastern Europe, seems to be preparing to fight the last war (meaning the 1939-45 war against the German Reich). He talks as if Hiroshima and Nagasaki never happened.

Russian military doctrine approves first-use of at least tactical nuclear weapons in any situation where Russia’s borders face existential peril.

The General’s ten or twenty thousand men (women are not on the front-line) will not last long in any war with Russia. Equally important, the families and homes of those soldiers will have been incinerated long before the soldiers themselves ever see a Russian soldier.

Taking a look back, at the bigger picture, this is all part of a cynical NWO/ZOG ploy, like the wars against Iraq. There is no need at all for the UK (or any Western or Central European state) to fight Russia.

The Soviet Union was an expansionist state, and motivated, however sluggishly since 1945, by an aggressive political doctrine, Marxism-Leninism.

That does not exist today. Russia is a mildly-nationalist traditional state, more or less. It may vaguely want to restore its core Soviet and Imperial-Russian borders (Ukraine, the “Pribaltika“, the Caucasus region, even Kazakhstan etc), but certainly has no interest in invading Europe west of Ukraine or Belarus.

There are now secret circles and cabals in the UK, USA etc which are pushing for war with Russia, using Ukraine (a “state” that has only existed for 30 years as a state, and with which the UK has almost no historical connection or common interests) as a pretext. Mad and bad.

Incidentally, I see that General Sanders is an alumnus of Worth Abbey school in West Sussex. In or about 1982, when the General would still have been at school there, I went with my then girlfriend and her two young children to some Roman Catholic gathering there. We camped in the grounds, just near the Abbey. I myself am not Roman Catholic, but went along for the ride, really. I was there for a dull day or two, and had a swim in the small and dark indoor pool, housed in a separate building.

A peaceful place, run by Benedictine monks. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worth_Abbey; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worth_School.

The UK is now full of filthy untermenschen of that or similar type. Those who promote migration-invasion are guilty of facilitating the consequent crimes.

It makes me wonder whether the education and training of officers should not be improved, so that nincompoops of that sort do not reach general-officer rank still thinking that a nuclear war with Russia can be “won”.

Interesting. I once knew someone, a former officer, who lived in the Savernake Forest, not very far from Porton Down. He was convinced that the people of Salisbury had been used, en masse, for mood-altering experiments.

Whatever the truth of that, it is at least interesting that the Skrypal case occurred in Salisbury. Was punishment of the double-agent only one motive? Was there another, such as trying to tar Porton Down with suspicion generally?

I myself once visited Porton Down, in the 1990s, with the then Ukrainian Ambassador, a Mr. Komissarenko. I blogged about that trip once or twice: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/03/06/diary-blog-6-march-2022/.

Once again, in the intervening year, several tweets reposted have been expunged via Twitter censorship.

Not very literate but, once deciphered, “Rachel’s” tweet is more or less my view, though I am far more sceptical about the competence of the Russian General Staff and Russian intelligence orgs, and far less willing to accept the brutal way in which this whole invasion is now being carried out, in terms of civilian harm done.

Old v. young, Ukrainian v. Russian, nostalgia for socialism v. misty optimism about finance-capitalism. Sounds like a very limited foreshadowing of Rudolf Steiner’s “War of All against All” prophecy.

Zelensky is trying to browbeat NATO into winning this war for him, in effect. Also, his assertion that Russia somehow menaces the eastern states of Europe is not very credible: after all, the whole world has seen how Russia has struggled to beat down shambolic and corrupt Ukraine, and has still not managed to do that.

“Ukraine is the new Covid”, for the transnational conspiracy.

Climate change narratives, Covid lies, facemask nonsense, “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, Ukraine (Zelensky) partisanship etc— for the transnational conspiracy, “all roads lead to Rome“…

…or Jewish lobby/Israel lobby puppet.

I blogged recently about how I once accompanied the then Ukrainian Ambassador to the UK, Mr. Komissarenko, to the main UK “bio-lab”, at Porton Down, Wiltshire; about 27 years ago, though.

Notwithstanding the very sluggish Russian invasion of Ukraine, are we really expected to believe that the British Army could perform adequately now?

Zelensky

A profile in the Italian edition of Vanity Fair magazine (in an imperfect translation):

WHO IS THE REAL ZELENSKY?

Who really is the Ukrainian comedian who became the beniamino of the western press and decanted as a hero on the covers of our weekly and in our News?

Who is the character that showed up in military uniform last Saturday in Florence between the applause and ovation of the PD armed Pacificist Square?

We know that he was born in 1978 from a family of Jewish origin and that his first language is not Ukrainian, but Russian.

He chooses his career as an actor and a comedian, founded the Kvartal 95 Studio and produced the Telenovela “Sluha Narodu” (Servant of the People) in which Zelensky himself plays any man who is tired of the political corruption that rages in Ukraine, see you One unexpectedly elected president.

It seems that Igor Kolomoyskyi – powerful businessman with the triple Ukrainian, Cypriot and Israeli passport, US trustee and Ukraine’s main oligarch – watching the popular telenovela comes the magnificent idea of turning fiction into a king height and making comedian Zelenzky play the part of the President not only in video but also in reality.

Immediately after Zelensky announces the foundation of a party that has the same name as the popular telenovela: “Servant of the People” and, at the peak of its popular television, announces its candidacy for the presidential elections of the year s occasionally.

From then on, its company, Kvartal 95, will register an abnormal flow of funding, run through off-shore based tax havens, for a sum of $40 million.

Zelensky’s main subsidizer of the campaign is really the [Jew] oligarch Kolomoyskyi, owner of PrivatBank, the largest bank in Ukraine, involved in several cases of fraudulent banking and illegal investments.

Igor Kolomoysky was one of the main sponsors of some of the neo-Nazis and ultra-nationalist paramilitary groups that in 2014 produced the coup that overturned President Janukovic’s legitimate government by initiating 8 years of instability and civil war in the region.

In April 2019 Zelensky newly elected President immediately provides to distribute government duties to the members of his company, the Kvartal 95.

Ivan Bakanov, already CEO of the company, becomes the head of the Secret Services, while Vice Director Serhiy Shefir becomes the official spokesman for the president.

Oligarch Igor Kolomoysky, the godfather and sponsor of Zelensky, has strong economic interests on the Donbass, which is why his private army of Neo-Nazist organizations, partly framed in the Ukrainian Army, has been eradicated about 16 since 2015 a thousand russophones to silence from the international community.

This is also the reason why Zelensky at the peace negotiations rejects Russian requests for recognition of the Donbass People’s Republics and is willing to continue the war by any means, trying by all means to involve NATO and extend it to the rest of Europe.

According to what appeared in the Pandora Papers and reported by “The Guardian” of October 3, 2021, Zelensky holds shares of three off-shore companies, has ties with several oligarchs from which he receives illegal funding and billionaires in revenue and is c straight wrapped around guns and money ai Neo-Nazis.

In the light of this and its declared interest in joining Ukraine to NATO, placing American missile bases on the borders of Russia, invoking the no-fly zone and the use of an atomic bomb, one is asked if the Ukrainian president is truly the hero that the European media is representing.

We wonder if the politicians and western media really realize what kind of business and corruption are hiding behind this shameless character and how much they are risking us to hide the war delusions of this unbalanced affair. “

[from Vanity Fair magazine]

The Ukrainian “neo-Nazis”, of course, the few genuine ones, are just being played, as are most of the others in this rather serious game.

Incidentally, take a look at the “usual suspects” on Twitter— the pro-Israel tweeters are all tweeting heavily about Ukraine, and every single one of the bastards is pro-Zelensky…

Usual suspects“? The ones that were/are all pro-facemask nonsense, pro “Covid” “vaccination”, pro-“lockdown” shutdown, anti-Corbyn etc…

Every. Single. Time.

Without commenting on the reported case specifically, it seems clear to me that the police, CPS, and maybe judges too, are getting pretty tired of the “CAA” Israel zealots desperately seeking to find “antisemitism” everywhere (and trying to pretend that it is a serious “problem”).

The small but well-funded “Campaign Against Antisemitism” is a tiny group of obsessives, stalkers,and snoops. A few dozen Jews, out of about 300,000 Jews in the UK.

They have been trying to have me prosecuted for a decade now (even before the CAA’s official foundation): see, for example (not a full list by any means) https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and, most recently, https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/

I sense, though it is only my impression, that the police, CPS, many MPs, even the largely (((controlled))) mass media are getting pretty tired of this constant Jewish-Zionist and/or pro-Israel whining, the attempts to bully people, the contrived and/or false accusations against people etc.

In fact, I notice that quite a few of the trolls and plotters who have targeted me over the years are, shall we say, “not doing so well” these days. “The stars in their courses fight on the side of the just” [ancient Chinese proverb].

[“Get down there, where you wanted to send me, you unclean spirit!“]

See also: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/07/18/theyre-coming-to-take-me-away-ha-ha/. Sadly, the recent intensification of quasi-police-state censorship on (and by) Twitter has resulted in blank spaces where some of the most amusing tweets used to be seen until very recently.

Incidentally, that CAA “report” on the Nicholas Nelson case portentously refers to “a new legal device” developed by them to unmask anonymous trolls etc. In fact, their “new legal device” is a Norwich Pharmacal order [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwich_Pharmacal_order], the first of which was granted in 1974! In fact, I remember learning about them when I was a Bar student in 1987-88. The development of such orders had nothing to do with the CAA, which was only established in 2014, forty years later…

The only “new” thing (actually, not so new anyway) is that the CAA has used that type of court order to unmask an “anonymous” Internet “troll”. I myself thought, but some years ago, of doing the same, to unmask and locate a few of the would-be “anonymous” (pseudonymous) Jew-Zionist and “antifa” trolls who pollute Twitter; sadly, to date, I have no money with which to undertake such a ratissage, not as yet, anyway.

In fact, even the use of such a court order in relation to Internet activity is not new, having been used against or in relation to Facebook and Google as long ago as 2008 (see, e.g. that Wikipedia article).

Looks as though a certain self-promoting and Israel-resident lawyer may have been been telling “porkies” once more,…

So (((typical)), such self-promotion (and such falsehood, as well).

No detail as yet as to whether the deceased was “vaccinated”, “boosted” etc, but the chances are that he was…

We hear that Ukraine and, indeed, Russia, are corrupt. Very true. So is, pretty much, all of Africa and South America, and much of Asia. How though, can we say anything about those places, when the UK has become as, if not more, corrupt over the past few decades?

Incidentally, Michelle Mone, instant “baroness”, is known for nothing but self-promotion and for having started a lingerie company that crashed in the end, but by that time she had managed to promote herself as a “self-made” “entrepreneur” or entrepreneuse.

A dishonest woman, in my opinion, who is, again in my opinion, little better than a fraudster. Despite now being married to a billionaire, she still wants to grab hundreds of millions, regardless of ethics.

If the UK ever has a real revolution, criminals like her will be the trigger.

Part-Jew “Conservative” David Cameron-Levita made her an instant “baroness”. Pathetic.

What a contrast to shameless and fraudulent fake “baroness”, Michelle Mone…

Still clapping, idiots?

Army

Idly perusing Wikipedia, I saw that the Danish Army now consists of about 25,000 men (and women), 63,000 reserves, and about 600 tracked and wheeled armoured vehicles.

Modest on the world scale, of course, but I now see that the British Army, once mighty, now has only 82,000 active personnel, little more than three times the Danish equivalent, and only 30,000 reserves.

In fact, proportionately, Denmark has far more troops than does the UK, because the population of Denmark is less than a tenth of that of the UK.

Of course, mere numbers are only part of the story in the contemporary era, where technology plays such a big part. All the same, numbers are still part of the story.

At the end of the Second World War, the total strength of the British Army was over 3 million, and even in 1980, just before the Falklands campaign, 159,000 active and 63,000 reserves.

The notional 82,000 active troops in 2021 would be the lowest muster since 1780. Of course the population was then a fraction of what it now is: even in 1801, when the first British census was taken, England and Wales had only 10.5 million inhabitants (and Ireland about 5 million, interestingly).

As said, numbers are only one factor. As said, technology is also key. So, however, are factors such as morale, motivation etc. Those, at least, have not changed since the time of Napoleon, and indeed of Clausewitz. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_von_Clausewitz.

One hears of and sees, in the cheaper newspapers, stories of how drug abuse is rife in the British armed forces, not to mention drunkenness (that, of course, is scarcely a new problem!).

The British armed forces overall have about 10% of their numbers women. How effective they are is a question for others to answer.

As to the Army generally, one sees reports that of the 82,000 active soldiers claimed, only about 50,000 are actually fit for duty. In any case, very many are what the Americans call “rear echelon” forces, not frontline fighting men. Not that that means that those rear forces are useless. Napoleon himself pointed out that “an army marches on its stomach“, and in the modern era a fighting spearhead needs a very broad rear support, everything from supply and logistics to pensions and banking.

Still, at a time when the clownish political leadership of the UK seems intent on provoking Russia, I wonder how our forces would, if push came to shove, stack up against at least the more elite Russian contingents.

[members of the elite Air Descent Contingent march in Red Square]

Britain and all Europe should be standing with Russia at this time. Contra Zionism. Contra Islamism. Spiritual Eurasia, contra mundum, if necessary.

Exactly. Nowhere, arguably, is that more obvious than in the UK.

Sadly misguided. The places where the “hundreds of thousands” need to go, suitably prepared, are not the beaches of Kent and Sussex, but the TV studios, radio stations, the “newspaper” propaganda offices, the Westminster monkeyhouse, and other System installations of importance.

Wherever Jews have power, non-Jews eventually become victims or slaves. Look at history. The ridiculous thing is that, in the UK, many of those who oppose Jewish supremacism in Israel or occupied Palestine, effectively support the Jewish lobby in Europe, eg in the UK itself; they pay lip-service to the “holocaust” farrago, in particular, and applaud the Zionist efforts to destroy free speech.

“Millennial Woes” has now been removed from YouTube and is only on Odysee. More censorship…

Worth listening to.

Controlled-opposition kingpin Farage. Was he paid millions, or tens of millions, offshore, as a reward for stabbing his own Brexit Party in the back in 2019, thus ensuring a Boris-idiot “Conservative” government (and ensuring, also, the binning of Corbyn, so that the Jewish lobby could retake control over the Labour Party)? Maybe (I do not know). Will he get a “peerage” (absurd and almost valueless though they now are)? Maybe (I do not know). Farage’s crony, Claire Fox, is already elevated to the Lords…

Sink them all, in the Channel, if that is the only way.
