How terrible it is when innocent animals suffer as “collateral damage” to human wars. I wonder whether the UN could set up a permanent task force with the mission to arrange with both sides to (any) armed conflict so that that animals, both in zoos and other situations, can be rescued and/or rehomed outside immediate war zones.

Presented as a defensive weapon, but how long before there are “tanks” or other basically offensive weapons fitted out with what the science fiction of fifty or a hundred years ago described as “death rays”?

The Western NWO/ZOG is fomenting a world war, and we, living in the West, will be lucky (I suppose lucky) to live through it.

If the military situation becomes seriously worse for Russia and/or, for example, if the war spreads actively to Poland later in the year, when the weather again turns very cold, Russia will turn off the gas taps, and Poland will freeze (and its industries stop dead).

I have occasionally noted on this blog the strange fact that so many Twitter-twits who have made malicious official complaints about me, attacked me, or made comments about me, have suffered serious medical or other problems, in some cases terminal. That trend has continued, with the green bottles falling one by one off the wall, as in the old song.

I note, also, that one particular Balkan fraud (who shall be nameless, for now), and who used to delight in tweeting maliciously about me, seems to have gone completely mad, claiming that NHS doctors and nurses have deliberately injured her by sticking needles into her. “Those whom the Gods wish to destroy, they first make mad“, in the old saying.

I see that a number of Jew-Zionist and/or “antifa” trolls have either ceased to post (about me, and in some cases generally) on Twitter, and are either not around at all now, or have locked their Twitter accounts.

Good riddance. Raus!

James Heappey

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.

Britain could go it alone in responding directly to a chemical agent attack by Vladimir Putin in Ukraine, the armed forces minister has suggested.

James Heappey said the Russian president is wrong if he thinks a response to him using banned weapons would require a Nato vote.”

[Daily Mail].

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.

[James Heappey MP, junior minister for the Armed Forces, who seems to want Britain to launch a unilateral attack, using chemical weapons at that, on Russia. A prize idiot, even in the Westminster monkeyhouse]

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.

Justice?

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.

Ukraine

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?

This may well end badly (the whole thing).

This comes close to becoming an active participant in a war against Russia.

A point I have made repeatedly for many years.

The old idea that Britain is (or rather, was) “a free country under law” has become “Britain is a facade of a free country under law, but behind that really is, or is becoming, an unfree country bound by arbitrary decisions and instant fake ‘laws’ and regulations“.

Those who are pushing for war or near-war with Russia over Ukraine (a territory with which, historically, the UK has had little connection, ever, incidentally) should realize that even actual chess games and poker games have led to death of participants in the past, when one player is pushed and pushed and pushed…

A few more thoughts about Ukraine strategy

This invasion was mishandled from the start by the Russian General Staff and Russian intelligence orgs. It should have been meticulously planned, but obviously was not. It has more in common with the pathetic and botched Soviet invasion of Finland in 1939-40 than with, say, the Blitzkrieg advances of the German Reich in 1939, 1940, and 1941, or indeed with the well-planned and executed Red Army advance into the Reich from 1943 to early 1945. Terrible. Heads must roll.

The Russians should have planned this so that they could have pressed a metaphorical button and said…GO!

The invasion only came after weeks of pointless sabre-rattling. Why? It should have come, as far as possible, as a bolt from the blue.

The first step, before ANY ordinary military or naval action, should have been the assassination of Zelensky and other leading political and military executives of the Kiev regime.

I have no idea whether the Russians now have much in the way of the old Spetsnaz and “Olympic Spetsnaz” special forces. In Soviet times, “Olympic Spetsnaz” units (largely composed of Olympic athletes and persons on a similar physical level) were reserved for tasks of the highest strategic importance, such as (against NATO states) destruction of missile launch sites and early-warning stations, elimination of important communications hubs, and the assassination of heads of state, heads of government, and the highest-ranking military officers.

The elimination of the Zelensky cabal should have been top priority, not just one extra idea.

Once Zelensky and his cabal were no longer active, or almost simultaneously, the Russian Spetsnaz could have taken down any civil and military communications not rocketed, and created chaos, especially in Kiev.

The Russians could then have concentrated all available forces on capturing Kiev by Blitzkrieg attack, starting with overwhelming long-range missile attacks on all important government, communications and TV/radio buildings (including police stations and Army headquarters etc), followed by a mass parachute descent by the VDV (Russian parachute shock troops) direct onto those open areas not too heavily-wooded around Kiev, such as airports. Even onto wide roads and into main squares. Among the areas and facilities to be secured— airports, main railway stations, bridges, major routes going north and east.

A risky plan, true, but the shock value of thousands of parachutes descending would have been enough to cause mass panic in Kiev. Roads jammed with destroyed cars, buses, and trucks, a headless Ukrainian government apparat, and any Ukrainian military and police personnel eliminated on sight.

Long-range rockets would have taken out at least some of Kiev’s air defences, as previously located by intelligence work.

At that point, before NATO, Biden, Boris-idiot etc even had time to say anything, let alone do anything, the main Russian invasion contingents should have swiftly begun to approach Kiev, from the north especially. At the nearest point, the distance from the Russian border to Kiev is 200 miles.

With Kiev’s airports under command, and air defences damaged or destroyed, more Russian forces could have been flown in, fighting their way into the heart of the city and to nearby strategic areas such as the already-secured bridges over the Dnieper.

On the same day, or the following day, Russian naval forces should have begun to blockade and attack the Black Sea and Sea of Azov coastal areas, while other forces began (as they have done in the real invasion) to encircle or attack the main cities of the east, notably Kharkov. Strategic targets in the west and centre of the country should have been attacked at the same time, or not long after.

The Donbass should not, in the short-term, have been a priority. Even had the Ukrainian forces stationed there for 7-8 years broken through, they would have nowhere to go, Donetsk being a border city, except into the “endless” and sparsely-populated prostor (open space) of southern Russia.

Kiev is the jewel in the crown.

Once the above had happened, there should have been the installation of, and proclamation of, an outline puppet government. Any resistance put down firmly, using pre-gathered intelligence.

With no Kiev government, with communications in chaos, with Russian troops pouring into Kiev, the remnants of the Ukrainian Army and its ragtag volunteer forces would have been leaderless, in the dark, and easily overwhelmed, at least east of the Dnieper.

As we know, the above reads like a pipe-dream compared to what actually happened.

The one single aspect that has all but killed the Russian invasion has been delay. It was delay that enabled the Kiev regime to start organizing a defence, delay that enabled the cities to be turned into fortresses, delay that enabled Zelensky to parade on the world, media (and social media) stage, delay that enabled NATO and others to start to send advanced weaponry.

As things stand, the Russians are still just keeping things stable, overall, but that is not enough.

Below, the Daily Mail assessment:

It can be seen that even the Daily Mail, while noting everything that has “gone wrong” with the invasion (with most of which assessment I can agree), still also notes that, on almost all active fronts, Russia is “winning”, albeit at a terrible cost (both for Russia and for Ukrainian civilians— and I can only agree with that, too).

There are pieces available to Putin which he has not as yet played. The first is that of the Belarussian armed forces. Relatively small, the regular Belarus Army nonetheless could exert pressure in the north/northwest, which might help the Russians in that region.

There are advanced Russian planes that have not yet been much used because they might be shot down by Ukraine’s donated NATO weaponry.

Putin can call upon reserves amounting to several million, in theory, but any fresh levies have to be equipped, transported, and fed.

Putin can, if he so chooses, flatten Ukraine’s main cities without using nuclear weapons. A terrible thing, and not at all what he wants, but he might still do that rather than “lose” the war. If he did that to all the large unoccupied eastern/central cities except Kiev, then his forces would be able to focus on and take Kiev without destroying it (and its historic landmarks).

Above all, whatever happens, Putin and Russia retain their ace-in-the-hole, the Russian strategic rocket forces and nuclear-capable air force and navy. 6,200 nuclear missiles and bombs. That power may not be useful directly in Ukraine, but keeps NATO out of the war, so far.

The “great fact” of popular strategy is that “Russia cannot be conquered”, and both Hitler and Napoleon were defeated trying to beat the odds on that.

An interesting thing is to pick any random area of Russia south or east of Moscow and look at it on Google Earth. Cities exist, yes, but once you are outside them, in the country, you are quickly in the vast landscape that made battle-hardened Wehrmacht officers tremble.

That vastness, with the Russian people (and their sense of nationality) makes Russia the toughest nut of all.

Even a nuclear war would probably not entirely destroy the essence of Russia.

State of play at Kiev, as of 25 March:

In the Kiev area, Russia is not pushing forward, and may not even be maintaining position.

I still say that, in the overall war, and despite the limited Ukrainian counter-attacks, Russia is slowly winning this, though —as also said before— at a terrible cost in human and animal suffering.

The Kiev regime must be running out of fuel in the east and centre. Fuel dumps and storage areas have been rocketed by the Russians. Food is also running out, perhaps has run out, in most of the besieged cities, though not, it appears, in Kiev itself.

Russia will not have “won” this war unless and until it has taken over and occupied all of Ukraine east of the river Dnieper (and Kiev) and, realistically, all of the coastal regions and ports, including Odessa.

For Russia simply to retain the Donbass would be unsustainable, both militarily and politically. This is now, pretty much, a fight to the death.

Anything less than occupation of the half of Ukraine east of the Dnieper, and south of a line 50-100 miles north of the Black Sea/Sea of Azov, will surely mean the end of Putin, not only politically but actually, literally. If Putin were to go into exile, a very unlikely thing, where would he go? What state would shelter him? Not Belarus, I think. Not China. North Korea? An unappealing prospect for someone akin to a modern “tsar”, to live in some remote, and guarded, North Korean villa.

No, I think that Putin will fight this war to the bitter end, even if that means nuclear war with “NATO” (the USA).

Looking a few weeks ahead, we can see the prospect that, for all of the Kiev-regime propaganda, Kharkov and most of the other cities presently besieged will be controlled by Russia, and that resistance will be confined largely to the west of the country, to Odessa, and to Kiev. By that time, Putin will presumably have decided how to take Kiev, or what else to do to bring this terribly-mismanaged episode to a close (at least in the short term).

Ukraine

[state of play as of early 24 March 2022]

Russian forces are almost stalled; stagnating. My impression though, is that (despite the Daily Mail take), they still (just about) hold the initiative. If Russia can energize itself to take and hold the territory between Donetsk and Kharkov, and then lay siege to, or at least encircle, Zaporozhye and then Dnipro (former Dnepropetrovsk), a general approach, east of the Dnieper river, on Kiev (from east and southeast) will be possible.

As I blogged right from the start, even before the start of the invasion, the Russian strategy should be to secure the Black Sea and Sea of Azov shores/littoral (to maybe 50-100 miles inland), to secure the entire territory of Ukraine east of the river Dnieper, and to take and hold Kiev. The rest of Ukraine can then be left.

On that basis, the Russians would control almost all the major cities of Ukraine, most of its industry, a significant amount of its agriculture, much of its electricity generation, and all of its sea-ports and Dnieper river-ports.

It appears that that is more or less what the Russians are doing, but very slowly.

It may be that Putin is going to have to commit greater forces to the war. Russia and its ally, Belarus, abut about two-thirds of Ukrainian territory. It must be possible to bring in more of everything in order to start the campaign moving again.

My sense is that Putin is not going to withdraw all forces to Russia proper. He will not back down or be seen to “lose”. I do not think that simply holding on to the Donbass regions alone will be seen by Putin or the Russian public as anything akin to a victory. There has to be more. To control the entire south and east (everywhere east of the Dnieper) would do it. That really means taking and holding Kiev as well.

Is Kiev essential to a Russian victory? I think that it probably is.

Latest from Ukraine

[Daily Mail map of positions in the Kiev area]

If it is true that around Kiev, and possibly elsewhere, Russian forces are being pushed back, then Putin has either to bring in fresh reserves from Russia, or he has to use missiles and air power to flatten the Kiev-regime forces and/or the cities which are as yet holding out, the most important of which is Kiev itself.

We are told that the Russian air force has been held back by reason of the ground-to-air missiles supplied to Zelensky’s forces by the USA and UK. If that is so, and if the Russian ground forces cannot overrun the Ukrainian positions and prevent use of such Western weaponry, then the only logical way for Russia to regain the initiative will be to use long-range missiles which cannot easily be shot down, and which would be able to change the battlefield, depending on what kind of warhead is used.

If this continues much longer, I can see Kiev and other major cities of the Ukraine being all but razed to the ground.

I note that Russian forces are (said to be) taking up defensive positions as far as 20 miles outside Kiev; away from any danger of being within any circle of destruction from the air, perhaps. Does this betoken a massive onslaught by missiles and planes? We may not have to wait long to find out.

We are in the midst of a gigantic propaganda campaign, and it is certainly not a Russian one.

Piers Morgan would no doubt disbelieve his own eyes, were Russian nuclear missiles to start landing in his native Essex, and preventing him from taking half a dozen holidays a year in the Maldives, Seychelles etc.

The old Soviet Union was sometimes described as “Upper Volta with rockets”. Well, OK (though that was obvious hyperbole anyway), but the great fact was that those rockets existed. 6,200 still exist, upgraded and mostly ready to launch.

Yes, of Russia’s 6,200 missiles (and nuclear bombs), only some will successfully launch and reach their target areas. Probably half, or maybe fewer, even as few as a quarter. So about 1,500. Of which about a tenth might be aimed at UK targets. Call it 150. 150 nuclear missiles, landing in the UK, each one capable of destroying almost anything within a radius of maybe 10 miles or more. Just one, landing in Westminster, would affect directly as far out as the outer London suburbs. That leaves 149 other such missiles striking elsewhere in the UK: Portsmouth. Southampton. Every large Army base. Every airfield. Every major city and town.

Nein danke, Piers “useful idiot” Morgan.

Seems that some people need to be reminded of a few facts:

#Ukraine has only been an independent state for 31 years;

#Prior to 1991, Ukraine was merely part of the Soviet Union and, before that, of the Russian Empire, stretching back for hundreds of years;

#Ukraine is a corrupt and shambolic state run by a profoundly undemocratic Jewish cabal;

#The UK has no alliance with Ukraine, no military treaty, and no obligation under international law to funnel arms to its illegitimate rulers;

#Sending arms to Ukraine only prolongs its agony.

Mutually Assured Destruction…for Ukraine?

One sometimes sees the saying “military intelligence is a contradiction in terms“, or as Americans prefer, “oxymoron“. Probably unfair, in most cases. However, what to think when a recently-retired British general, General Sir Chris Deverell [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Deverell], thinks that:

I have been against the imposition of a no fly zone by NATO in Ukraine, believing that it would surely escalate the conflict. But Putin seems hell bent on escalation,’ Deverall [sic] tweeted.

‘So the question is becoming: does NATO fight him now or fight him later? He will likely respond with nuclear threats. But there is no fundamental reason why these are more useful to Putin than they are to NATO. 

‘Our logic has to be that his threats are meaningless. Whatever he can do to us, we can do to him.’” [Daily Mail].

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10588295/Its-no-longer-Nato-fight-Putin-says-retired-UK-general.html.

Such logic might be borderline acceptable from the American point of view, but not from the British.

The old Soviet Union was about 92 times the size of the UK. Even the present Russian lands are 72 times the area of the UK. The USA (including Alaska, Hawaii etc) is 41 times the size of the UK. Russia and the USA are, famously, both enormous. However badly damaged they would be by nuclear attack, they would probably have some areas, even urban areas, that would survive nuclear war. Britain is different.

Were the UK to be hit by nuclear attack, it is quite likely that only remote parts of Northern Ireland and (perhaps) the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, as well as, possibly, West Wales and Cornwall, would survive more or less unscathed, depending on various factors.

Britain’s small size, and the multiplicity of targets offered, would mean that nuclear attack might mean the end of Britain as we now know it.

How irresponsible and indeed asinine it is for a British senior officer, albeit retired, even to think about war with Russia over a country, Ukraine, with which Britain has no alliance, few significant political or economic connections, almost no historical connection, and no legitimate strategic interest. A country, moreover, which has only existed, as an independent state, for 30 years. Madness.

There is another factor here. I am not at all sure that the General has quite factored-in the difference in mentality.

The Second World War involved, of course, enormous devastation, but that damage and harm was by no means spread equally. The United States suffered no direct war damage at all, unless you include the initial attack on Pearl Harbor. The same was true of other combatant states, such as Canada.

Britain, of course, did suffer from German bombing, and as many as 60,000 civilians were killed (mostly in the “Blitz“, which ran for about 8 months in 1940 and 1941). Germany’s losses, during 1941-45, were about ten times greater. The same was true of property damage.

While London was badly damaged by German bombing, the extent of it is usually exaggerated. Most of the bombing was in and around the dock areas of the Thames. Thus areas of East London and the City of London were very badly damaged, while most of West London, North London, South London went untouched.

Certain other UK cities were attacked, and some (Plymouth, Southampton, Exeter etc) also badly damaged.

Having said that, if you visit London today, most of it dates from before 1939, and much of that which postdates 1945 is a result of postwar redevelopment, not Luftwaffe bombing, or the strikes of V1 and V2 missiles and flying bombs.

An interesting book on the changes wrought in London since the 19thC is Lost London. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lost-London-1870-1945-Philip-Davies/dp/0955794986. That book, though, stops at 1945, so does not cover the huge vandalism since, one example being the demolition of the Euston Arch, demolished in 1962: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euston_Arch.

[Euston Arch, London, built 1838, demolished 1961-62; picture from 1890s]

German cities were, many of them, damaged to a far greater extent during 1941-45, some almost flattened. Berlin, Hamburg, Nuremberg, Dresden, and many many others. A few pictures tell the story.

Parts of Eastern Europe and Western Russia suffered as badly as Germany:

[Warsaw, early 1940s]
[a haunting image from Stalingrad in 1943]

Kharkov, now being battled for in 2022, was the location of no less than four battles in the early 1940s. Other Soviet towns were equally badly damaged.

Reverting to the question of Russian mentality, I am not at all convinced that, faced with the likelihood of NATO (basically US) nuclear retaliation, the Russians would back down.

I do not know how many moving parts there are between any decision of Putin to launch nuclear attack, and the actual launch of missiles. In “the old days”, the KGB kept the launch and arm codes separate from the military control of the actual weapons. Now? Maybe there is a similar system, maybe not.

One thing is for sure. Any nuclear exchange will change the world forever. The American military-destructive power may be several times greater than that of Russia, but Russia has more actual missiles, we read.

Let us say that the top 50 cities of the USA are hit by nuclear missiles (and Russia does have about 6,200, apparently), what then? Yes, Russian cities would be hit too, but could the USA function if those top 50 cities were wiped out? That’s every city from New York (most-populated) to Arlington, Texas (50th most-populated). What about the top 100 cities? That takes you down to Richmond, Virginia (100th most-populated).

Of course, military and infrastructure targets, outside urban areas, would be hit as well.

In Britain, pretty much the entire country would be rendered uninhabitable.

This has to be avoided. It is madness to contemplate a nuclear war involving hundreds of millions, perhaps billions, of people, however sorry we may be that Ukrainian civilians are suffering.

I think that my view is a commonsense one and, au fond, at least as “compassionate” as that of the war hawks.

Already, we see idiots like Boris Johnson and other so-called “world leaders” taking steps that can only result in poverty and deprivation in the UK and elsewhere: economic sanctions. They will hit the West every bit as hard as the Russian masses (the plutocrats of Russia will not suffer as much as the poor, of course).

Russia is not going to step back in Ukraine unless faced with complete military defeat. The West, NATO, must step back from its present escalation, or World War Three might really happen, as unexpectedly (yet, paradoxically, expectedly) as previous wars— 1914 and 1939.

Ukraine

As I have blogged several times, the Russians could have taken Kiev, Ukraine east of the Dnieper, and the Black Sea littoral, with a kind of “Blitzkrieg” combined with special forces operations, accomplished that (and the elimination of the Jewish regime in Kiev) in a few days, and without much harm or panic caused to the civilian population.

Sadly, that did not happen, and the whole invasion has become a bloody mess. The Russian Army and General Staff is culpable.

Having said the above, I see that the Russians are following the same basic strategy that I outlined weeks ago, not bothering so far to do much in the western two-thirds of the country, at least not in areas very far beyond the Black Sea.

As I flagged up some days ago (only now starting to be mentioned in the UK msm), the Ukrainians in the contested areas are starting to run out of food, fuel, possibly ammunition, and in some areas even water.

This is now a depressingly-bloody and sad war of attrition, which Russia is very slowly winning. The major cities, except Lvov, are almost certain to fall to Russian control. The population remaining will be sullen, unco-operative and, more or less, prisoners. How far beyond that they will go (to actual armed resistance), once Russian rule is dug in, is uncertain.

The Russians may allow, or even encourage, Ukrainian civilians in the Russian-controlled areas to leave and go as refugees to the western parts of the Ukraine, or via there to neighbouring countries. If that happens, the Russians will have got rid of people probably hostile to them, people who need to be fed etc; that would also place a greater burden on the Kiev regime (as long as it remains active) and on the EU states bordering Ukraine.

Hard to watch the superficially-kind but actually propagandistic (and contrary to international convention) treatment of a captured Russian soldier. Yes, he was given tea, but the Ukrainian soldiers or militia fighters in the crowd looked savagely exultant. Hope he survives and is not ill-treated. The telephone call to the boy’s mother in Russia was obviously designed to put pressure on her and the Russian population and government.

Commanders of Ukraine’s Special Operations Forces warned they would no longer take Russian artillerymen as prisoner of war in response to their ‘brutal shelling’ of cities – a move which would be a war crime. 

Each and every gun crew… will be slaughtered like pigs,’ a statement on their Facebook page on Wednesday evening said.” [Daily Mail].

“Each action posits an equal and opposite reaction”, so I dare say that the Russians will also soon stop taking prisoners, at least any thought to belong to irregular forces, including any “volunteers”, adventurers, or freebooters from Western countries.

I do not know why the Russians have failed to kill or capture Zelensky and his cabal. That should have been top priority. If it was, and yet failed, it argues again that both the GRU and Russian Army need thorough reform, once this is all over.

In the UK, the msm has whipped up a kind of “let’s bomb Russia even if it means nuclear war” madness.

Were I ensconced in a castle in the South West of the UK, together with loyal followers, I might be more sanguine, in that, after massive destruction, we could take over the UK, eliminate surviving enemies, and create a new social-national society.

However, as it is, that is little more than a pipe-dream. I do not want my (still, at least partly) “green and pleasant land” to be hit by waves of nuclear weapons-caused destruction.

Historical note

The place where Europe began: Spiral cities built on remote Russian plains by swastika-painting Aryans

“Desolate: The Bronze Age cities were built some 4,000 years ago by the Aryans in a 400 miles long region of the Russian Steppe.”

The Aryans’ language has been identified as the precursor to a number of modern European tongues. English uses many similar words such as brother, oxen and guest which have all been tracked to the Aryans.” [Daily Mail report]

These ancient Indian texts and hymns describe sacrifices of horses and burials and the way the meat is cut off and the way the horse is buried with its master. If you match this with the way the skeletons and the graves are being dug up in Russia [on the border of Siberia and Kazakhstan], they are a millimetre-perfect match.’”

[Bettany Hughes, TV historian, in UK Daily Mail].

The foundations of modern Europe lie with the Aryans and their post-Atlantean, post-Aryan descendants:

Long live, er, freedom…

Russia has to secure at least its major objectives (Kiev, Black Sea coast, east-of-Dnieper Ukraine) quickly, before those weapons are deployed.

A horrible and bitter end, but Russia now has no choice, from where it now is, leaving aside blame for how things have turned out.

One of many tweeters prematurely hailing a Kiev-regime victory. The game is not yet at an end. Russia is what the mediaeval ages called “investing” (besieging) most of the major cities of Ukraine. The tactics also are those of the Middle Ages— starvation and bombardment.

How long can those cities hold out without food, or perhaps without water and electricity? I feel sorry for those civilians trapped therein. Old people, unwell people, companion animals too. It should not have happened in this way, and the Jew-Zionist-controlled msm in the West has used these circumstances to demonize Russia, because of the human and animal cost of all of this.

I think that Russia can still achieve its strategic objectives in the east and south. That leaves the approximately two-thirds of the country to the west of the Dnieper and to the north of the Black Sea littoral. That rump of Ukrainian territory would have been of only limited importance, but now will be of major importance because of the arms flooding in from the West. It may be that, before too long, the destruction of locations in the west of Ukraine will more than equal that happening at present elsewhere.

Surely calling those idiots “intellectuals” is a little too kind? That horrible little blot, Harwood, was recently sharing, on Twitter, his revelation that Italy, on a map, looks like a boot!

Almost as good as the “advice” given to the British public in the 1980s by constipated civil servants, to the effect that, in the event of nuclear attack, British people should shelter under a stout table, “protected” by a tablecloth or blanket, and should not forget to keep safe their pension books and bank documents!

As previously blogged, the aim in the medium-term is to get as many people as possible microchipped, probably on the arm or wrist, and get them using that system for all everyday uses: NHS, shopping, travel. Those refusing will be gradually marginalized and, ultimately, probably, detained indefinitely.

Only extreme resistance now, or soon, will prevent this in Western and Central Europe, North America, Australasia, and elsewhere.

As a control mechanism, “the virus” has done most of its job. The majority of the (eg) British population have been proven to be sheep, easily corralled and controlled; in effect, brainwashed. The facemask nonsense was key in doing that.

Of course, a properly-run society would properly punish the likes of Professor Ferguson (or, indeed, laugh at him from the start, and certainly not take him seriously).

Stray thoughts about the increasingly acrid Ukraine situation

Had the Russian forces mounted a properly-planned Blitzkrieg from the start, and thus achieved their main strategic objectives within days, toppling the Jew-Zionist Kiev regime and installing a puppet government de facto over the Kiev region, over that part of Ukraine east of the Dnieper, and over the Black Sea littoral, there would have been no time for the creation of a civilian resistance, and no time for the NWO/ZOG powers of the EU, UK, and North America to respond effectively. Also, the Ukrainian civilians would not have suffered harm, certainly not on the scale that looks likely now.

In the ancient cult of Magna Mater, the candidates for initiation had at one point to wade through a literal bath of blood. Metaphorically, that is where Putin and the Russian forces now are.

Unless they are going to abandon the operation completely, which would not only be humiliating for Putin personally but disastrous for Russia strategically, they have to press on to victory, even though any victory now will be horrible and bitter.

NATO, the EU, even usually-neutral Sweden, and others, are funnelling serious armament into Ukraine now. It will be placed at the disposal of the Kiev regime.

The ground-to-air armament flooding in may deny Russia command of the skies before very long. Even now, Russia’s air force does not seem to be being used as effectively as it could be, and certainly not as ruthlessly as the Americans use theirs.

This situation can only worsen for Russia over time. The only answer will be for Russia to destroy the Kiev regime very soon, whatever it takes. The key players have to be captured or eliminated.

I tremble for the remaining civilian population of Ukraine (and their companion animals). This should never have happened, certainly not in this way.

Supplies of food and fuel must be running out in Kiev. The odds are still in favour of the Russian invaders, if they press forward.

The Russian Army has been hugely upgraded over the past 15 years, but has shown itself incapable of proper staff work and planning. It dithered for weeks (that may have been Putin’s fault), then launched an unimpressive, sluggish and “bitty” invasion that seems to have lacked elan and rigour.

In a way, this incipient debacle is reminiscent of what happened in Karelia in 1939-40.

Stalin would have been shooting generals by now. Putin cannot do that, but he has to reinvigorate this operation before it becomes a manifest and historic defeat.

How is it that a country with (one reads) 4,500 fighter aircraft cannot dominate the skies of one that has fewer than 100?

If Putin and his generals do nothing, or if they withdraw behind Russia’s frontiers, The Kiev regime will be resupplied, its forces upgraded (all paid for by NWO/ZOG states), and before long there will be NATO or NATO-proxy forces stationed only 300 miles from Moscow (Moscow is 300 miles from the Ukrainian border at the nearest point).

The logic of the above is that the Kiev regime must now be toppled by massive force, even though a victory bought at such a price in destruction and suffering could not be other than bitter and even sickening.

Ukraine— possible developments

What if Russian forces manage to control the whole area east of the Dnieper, as well as the Kiev area and the Black Sea coast? What then?

If there is a relocation of the Kiev regime to Lvov, with control over the western part of Ukraine, then NATO and the EU will flood it with arms and training staff. Russia, and Putin especially, would then have the choice of coming to some accommodation with that government, or fighting it. The Western allies would presumably keep referring to it as the Government of Ukraine de jure, even if the Russians install a Ukraine government, de facto, in Kiev.

In fact, both such regimes would only, de facto, control about half of of the whole country. Both would be supported as “de jure” governments of the whole by, and only by, their individual patron-states.

It is hard to see any such Lvov regime accepting Russian rule over a third to a half of present Ukraine, and including Kiev. On the other hand, and on present evidence, the Russian forces would seem incapable of taking the whole country, let alone holding it.

It is easy for many to talk about Ukraine as if it is smaller than it is, but Ukraine is about the same size as France. Huge. Nearly three times the size of the whole UK.

As for Kiev, with its 3 million inhabitants, it is —depending on where administrative boundaries are drawn— about the 7th-largest city by population in Europe. Indeed, if one excludes Istanbul, Moscow, and St. Petersburg, the 4th-largest.

Of course, if one includes suburbs outside strict city limits, London and Paris have even larger populations, but that would still mean that Kiev would be the 5th-largest city in Europe (excl. cities in European Turkey and European Russia), after London, Paris, Madrid, and Berlin.

The international situation can only go down from here. On the periphery, biding its time, China…

Time to repost my blog thoughts about the potential necessity of founding a new civilization on the rubble of the old…

This is basically correct.

As that person is saying, Russia is not, as yet anyway, flattening everything in Ukraine, whereas the American idea, seen repeatedly, is to flatten whole cities, regardless of civilian harm.

In any case, Putin does not want to take over a flattened wasteland.The way things are going, though, he may have little choice.

Again, the cold logic seems to lead to a massive attack on the locations of the Kiev regime itself, i.e. on central Kiev, with the aim of decapitating the present government and thus starting to end any mass resistance.

When was the last time that SIS/MI6 had a real coup not involving a walk-in (so not Gordievsky, not Mitrokhin etc)? I suppose it will be claimed that their successes are all too secret to reveal, which is plausible up to a point, but leaves plenty of scope for unmerited praise based on unmerited reputation, and for the covering-up of mistakes and disasters.

Why is he obsessed with this? Is it to distract people from whatever else? Seems eccentric in the extreme.

More tweets, and some thoughts about the Ukraine situation

Really? The author says that the Russians “had the advantage of tactical surprise“. How so? They did everything but send out engraved invitations! No doubt for good reason.

If I myself, not a professional military strategist, and not an intelligence officer, could very accurately predict (on my blog) where, when, and how the Russians would attack, I am sure that the Ukrainian Intelligence, and whatever they have in the way of a General Staff, also could work it out easily enough, even if most Western msm commentators and political drones were getting it wrong.

It is true that the initial Russian advance was sluggish. In fact the invasion should have happened 2 or even 3 weeks ago and been far more of a Blitzkrieg.

Putin’s main weakness overall lies in the absence of ideology beyond “Great Russian” chauvinism. Lenin, Stalin, and even their successors, had an ideology which underpinned straight geopolitical Great Game-ing. The same of course was true of Hitler, and even the later tsars; Nikolai II had the slogan Orthodoxy-Autocracy-Homeland. When Putin makes a major move, it is simply a rather basic nationalistic power exercise.

I agree that Putin’s problems will not end with repression of immediate resistance in Kiev, the parts of Ukraine east of the Dnieper, and the Black Sea littoral. In a sense, that is when his problems will begin.

There is something else. If, as now seems likely, NATO/NWO will support irregular warfare based on Lvov, and by supplying whatever is left of the forces of the Kiev regime with more and more powerful weapons, and with training in neighbouring countries such as Poland, the possibility grows of direct confrontation between Russian forces and those of NATO.

At the same time, the NWO’s sanctions regime will somewhat impoverish both Russia and the West and Centre of Europe. This may lead to greater political instability across the continent.

I feel that the “nuclear war” clock hands just moved a little closer to midnight.

As to the existing military situation, it has become far more messy than need have been the case, but the Kiev regime is fast running out of air support, fuel, food, ammunition. It will be defeated; the question is when. Personally, I shall be surprised if the Kiev government is still in place in Kiev beyond this weekend, though it may be able to relocate to Lvov.

I don’t know what to make of Zelensky’s apparently brave stance. It may or may not be genuine. We shall see whether he is, in the end, extracted (but with Russian troops all around, and looking for him, it would have to be a “hot extraction”…).

For me, the resupply issue is key. The Russians are said to have resupply problems, but the Ukrainian troops must be close to running out of food, ammunition, and fuel. As to those civilians issued with a weapon, I wonder how much ammo they get. 20 rounds? 40? Not much if the weapon is automatic.

In fact, it seems to me to be very irresponsible of the Kiev regime to issue weapons on request to just anyone. A move of desperation, of course, but how effective will such volunteers be anyway? Many seem to be completely untrained in the use of such weapons, and moreover will not have much ammunition issued to them, probably. If the Russians catch them with weapons, even if unfired, they may well end up being shot as “irregular forces” or, in an old term, “francs-tireurs” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francs-tireurs].
