IF YOU WANT PEACE, PREPARE FOR NUCLEAR WAR

September 24, 2022

SI VIS PACEM, PARA BELLUM NUCLEI

Any concession to tyrant Putin will make his bellicose drive worse. Appeasement will only tell him that he has got to be right, he is winning, and he is on the right path. We have seen that movie with Hitler. The drama with the Sudetenland in 1938 has much in common with the drama in the Donbas, including a dictator screaming that minorities were in mortal danger, and sham referenda: Hitler had been elected in part on the promise of protecting what he claimed were abused German minorities. 

Thus Pangermanism wanted to annex the Sudeten to Germany. However, Hitler was not so ridiculous as to pretend that the Sudeten inhabitants were victims of a genocide at the hands of the Czechs. He proposed an annexation referendum, overseen by the German army, though. The Czeks refused, France mobilized, so Hitler proposed a peace conference, at Munich, during which a piece of Czechoslovakia was given to Germany.

Putin’s discourse about a (completely imaginary) “genocide”in the Donbas is worse than Hitler’s raging statements about the Sudeten. A first attempt to propose a referendum of the Sudeten about annexation overseen by the German army was blocked by a war threat from France [1].   Hitler was given land at Munich in 1938… To appease him. 

That appeasement was not just a weakness, it gained time, the way France and the UK looked at it at the time (they were wrong). France and the UK did not have the USA with them, and Britain had basically no army (same as in 1914). The US was neither diplomatically, nor economically, nor politically or militarily with its parents, France and Britain. Roosevelt had named pro-fascist ambassadors to the UK and Germany, and hordes of US plutocrats were making the fascists regimes prosperous, well invested and fueled [2]. 

For many years, the New York Times, and other US media, did their best to ignore Hitler’s exactions, even while the German dictator was notoriously killing millions of minorities, and occupied democracies.

While Hitler was momentarily appeased, Britain was frantically equipping itself with a huge state of the art air force. France and the UK felt that time worked in their favor, militarily, because of their great empires.

Hitler invaded Austria in March, a day before a planned referendum on annexation by Germany (similar to Putin and his sham referenda).  After weakening Czechoslovakia militarily, grabbing its defense lines, Hitler invaded the rest. When getting ready to invade Poland, Hitler allied himself with the Kremlin (to add to his alliances with Italy, Japan and Spain). This time, France and the UK declared war.

The NYT, and pseudo-progressives paid by Putin, are at it again with the Kremlin nuclear tyrant: “If [giving part of Ukraine to Putin] happens, a territorial settlement will be reached and the global rules-based international order will be re-established”… bleats hopefully Mr. Brooks (who censored my comment contradicting his wish to give much of Ukraine to Putin) 

Appeasing a dictator who, because of his dreams of glory, threatened to extinguish humanity, is criminal nonsense. Putin is obsessed with taking Ukraine. Any negotiated settlement will just give him time to re-arm and return with greater force and greater threats. Feed Putin, like a bear, or a tiger, he will come back. The only way to end the threat is to eliminate Putin. If not eliminated, he will come back. 

***

Hitler had to keep on attacking, lest the German army and Volk turned against him: too many things, including democracy and the economy, had turned sour in Germany (same with Russia today). The exact parallel is true in Russia today: war powers protect a dictator. Given any piece of Ukraine, Putin will come for more, including the Baltic and Poland

The New York Times did its best to ignore Hitler’s exactions, even while the German dictator was notoriously killing millions of minorities, and occupied democracies.

The NYT is at it again with the nuclear tyrant; the NYT, and many other media, propose appeasement with Putin: “If [giving part of Ukraine to Putin] happens, a territorial settlement will be reached and the global rules-based international order will be re-established.” This is criminal nonsense. It’s akin to appeasing a rapist who threatened to kill the victim and onlookers, by proposing to him to rape the victim just a bit, to reestablish order. Putin is obsessed with taking Ukraine. Any negotiated settlement will just give him time to re-arm and return with greater force and greater threats. He will come back. The only way to end the threat is to eliminate Putin. If not eliminated, he will come back. 

***

We have an extremely similar situation now with what happened with Hilter and his fascist allies in 1937-1940. However, many have learned this history, and thus opted to act differently. This is why 27 European countries, including traditional neutrals such as Sweden and Switzerland are sending weapons to Ukraine. (Sweden and Switzerland helped Nazism for many years, often crucially), France is not taking orders from Biden, and yet, has switched to war production of many of its most sophisticated weapons, after sending 25% of its mobile high precision CAESAR guns to Ukraine.

The easiest way out of Nazism occurred in 1937 when the German High Command, led by General Beck, prepared a coup against Hitler. Stupidly, they searched for help in the Uk and US. The German army asked the US and UK to stand officially against Hitler (thus supporting France, Hitler’s dedicated enemy). The German army leaders would then make a coup, arguing to the German Volk that Hitler was an existential threat to Germany. 

 The best course for peace is then, as horrible as it may sound, to prepare for nuclear war. There is simply no alternative. Any concession to Putin is a concession to a group of criminals who threatened this week to “use strategic nuclear weapons against the West for their occupation of Ukraine“.

If the Russian army realizes Russia faces annihilation, it will make a coup.

If the West is ready to fight a nuclear exchange, the Russian army will find itself in the situation that German generals naively looked for in 1937: having a good excuse for a coup. So the West has to get ready, and has to scramble into world war mass production, especially of anti-missile systems [3] (which do exist; but recently the US had just one, around Washington, while France had eleven, and sent one to Romania to protect a major Franco-American base there…) 

Some will object that nuclear war is unthinkable, that I am thinking the unthinkable. But so did Putin, and for more than a decade. The strategy of going nuclear in a conventional conflict is called by Putin’s valets: “escalate to de-escalate“. There is little doubt that nuclear weapons should be unlawful. Only a few should be left, under UN supervision, in case a comet comes our way, or some rogue criminal organization develops weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological, etc.), and needs to be taken out. An example of such a gang of criminals is the Putin gang. The UN has established that war crimes were committed, including rape, torture and execution of children as young as 4. Putin’s lovers, of which there are many throughout the West, have also to answer these crimes, which they approve of, by denying they happened, similarly to the most fanatical Nazis in 1945.

Their reasons are vile: we know Putin spent at least half a billion on infliuencers, worldwide. Those influencers using Kremlin propaganda should be jailed and prosecuted (in this order: this is the greatest war, we have to switch to military law and traitors to civilizations should be soped, that is, arrested.)

So we have a criminal gang, armed to the teeth with the world’s biggest arsenal of nukes. But nukes cost a lot of money to keep functioning as anticipated, and we have to rely upon the hope that there a re semi-decent individuals in the Russian military whose sadomasochism is not so high that they will try to destroy civilization. Meanwhile, scrambling for anti-missile systems, potential evacuation of cities, and reactivation of old Western nukes should be the order of the day.

As the old French saying has it:

“A la guerre, comme à la guerre”…

In war, as in war.

[1] The Czechs announced on 28 September 1938 that they rejected Hitler’s proposal of an annexation referendum (the  Godesberg Memorandum). France ordered the mobilization of 600,000 men. The Royal Navy was also mobilized the same day.

Hitler feared a war against Czechoslovakia, Britain and France. He agreed to Chamberlain’s proposal for a further meeting the next day, now at Munich, between four heads of government, Chamberlain for Britain, Hitler for Germany, Prime Minister Daladier for France and Mussolini for Italy, with no Czech (!!!) or Soviet participation. On 1 October, a pact was signed which provided for possession of the Sudeten Province to be transferred to Germany, with Britain and France guaranteeing the new borders of Czechoslovakia. On 1 October, German troops marched into the Sudetenland, which was immediately incorporated into Germany. Some 115,000 Sudeten Czechs and 30,000 Sudeten Germans, fled to what was left of Czechoslovakia. By 1 March 1939, the number of refugees,  including Social Democrats, Communists and Jews, was reported by the Institute for Refugee Assistance to stand at 150,000

[2]… to replace his friend the historian Dodd who thought war against Hitler was necessary. Throughout the war, US president FDR looked more interested in weakening France and Britain, and instrumentalized various fascists, Hirohito, Mussolini, Hitler, Franco and Stalin to do so. Warning: this is nearly 100% in contradiction with the official version of history… But that version is wrong, and that’s demonstrated in many of my essays, detail after detail…

[3] Western anti-missile systems do exist; but recently the US had just one (built in cooperation with Norway), around Washington DC, while France had eleven, and sent one to Romania to protect a major Franco-American base there…

 

France pursued a series of nuclear tests from 1966 through 1996 at Mururoa Atoll, French Polynesia. This photograph is from the 914-kiloton Licorne (Unicorn) test, July 3, 1970. Fangataufa is permanently uninhabited. It is classified as a Common Military Zone. The zone includes the lagoon areas enclosed by the atoll and by baselines linking the closest points emerging from the reef on both sides of the channel. Entry is prohibited without authorization. A standard strategic missile on a French SSBM submarine carries a higher destructive power than the bomb above (as it can spread 20% more power over a much larger area with ten warheads. The same SSBM can carry 16 such missiles. The US SSBM can carry even more missiles. Together, France, Uk, and US have 22 such submarines…

Dumas Family Illustrates Color Blindness In France… And The Napoleons and Nazis Who Hated It.

September 21, 2022

Anybody obsessing about race and color in the first order is a racist (which makes much of the US old mental system racist, as it obsesses about race and color, to this day, and in official census and questionaires). Whereas worrying about those who obsess about race and color is not racist, but prudent. Racists and the color obsessed have obsessive systems of thoughts and emotions, which are reflected all over their mental systems.

Hence the admiration for Napoleon, a systemic, strident racist and enslaver, is an admiration for a racist and enslaver mentality… which shows up clearly in Napoleon’s obsessive fascism. Admiring Napoleon has united the most dangerous sort of scoundrels, worldwide. Admiring Napoleon is actually a form of racism. Several French generals of African ancestry opposed the forerunner of Hitler. Here is a portrait of one of Napoleon’s enemies, général Alexandre Dumas. 

French republican général Alexandre Dumas; Attributed tо Louis Gauffier/ Portrait d’un chasseur dans un paysage, dit portrait d’Alexandre Dumas père/ cm 34/huile sur papier marouflé sur carton/ 32,5 x 25 cm/ (c) Bayonne, Musée Bonnat-Helleu / Cliché A. Vaquero

Napoleon, a Corsican aristocrat, or let’s say hereditary bandit, was thus cut off from a completely different mental tissue than the best minds of the French Revolution, of which there were hundreds, if not thousands. Napoleon was felt, early on, to be a danger for the Republic, and the Revolution, and thus the glory seeking Corsican was encouraged to embark in his Egypt expedition: the French Republic’s leadership hoped he would die there (Napoleon went, in the hope of defeating the Ottomans, spreading the Revolution there, becoming a new Alexander; but he discovered that Islamists had no affinity for the concept of Republic, and besides he couldn’t get to the ammunition in Saint Jean D’Acre, which he besieged in vain, and UK admiral Nelson defeated the French fleet).

A post mortem painting of general Dumas.

The French Revolution and Republic had top generals who were of African descent, such as the father of Alexandre Dumas, Thomas Alexandre Davy de La Pailleterie, represented above in a Nineteenth Century painting (it’s actually inspired by the physionomy of his son, the author of the “3 Mousquetaires” and “Reine Margot”, who immortalized D’Artagnan, head of king’s Musketeers)… For what Dumas the general really looked like, see the sculpture below (which was melted by the Nazis…)

Thomas Alexandre Dumas, of his true name Thomas Alexandre Davy de La Pailleterie, was father of the famous novelist Alexandre Dumas père, whose son, Dumas Fils, was himself a famous writer and author of La Dame aux camélias. These three generations of Dumas have something which sets French civilization away from, and above, racist, color obsessed culture. In France the Dumas trio is famous and was memorialized in an entire city square in Paris…I was exposed to French culture for decades… 

But one day I came across some US writing informing me that Dumas was “black”. I had seen pictures of Dumas and I had not noticed, for decades, that he looked a bit African in some ways! But the US are all about “color” to this day, and many a US citizen has a keen eye for race. However, curiously, while the whites are white and the blacks are black (even when they look mostly white), the Asians are Asian (not “yellow” as they used to be… Some Asians are whiter than white, indeed…), and the RedSkins, well, now are proudly “indigenous”…

The Nazis went out of their way to destroy the memories of the Dumas family. They melted his statue! There are fewer things which the Nazis hated more than descendants of French, or French-like Senegalese with partial African ancestry. They found thousands in Germany and sterilized all of them. (A French-Senagalese military regiment was also assassinated by Rommel’s 7th Panzer division in 1940… To its eternal shame…)

Dumas was not the only man of mixed African parentage to have gained great prominence in Eighteenth Century France. Another son of a nobleman and a freed black woman from Guadeloupe became one of the most renowned fencers—and violinists—of the 18th century. Taking the title Chevalier de Saint-Georges, he went to a prestigious school, he had the patronage of Marie-Antoinette and served in the king’s honor guard. When the American founding father John Adams visited Paris in 1779 he wrote that this “mulatto man is the most accomplished man in Europe in riding, shooting, fencing, dancing, music.”

Raising spectacularly through the ranks, on merit alone, as his father died within days of him entering the army, Thomas Alexandre Dumas, Thomas Alexandre Davy de La Pailleterie, became general in chief of a major French army by age 32.

His mother, Marie-Cessette Dumas (1714–1786) was enslaved in Saint Domingue (now Haiti). His father was a French noble from Normandy, who “bought from a certain Monsieur de Mirribielle a negress named Cesette at an exorbitant price…” Several official documents describe her as pure “African”, “negress”, namely born in Africa, and then transported to Saint Domingue (and explicitly not of mixed race). It’s not clear when she died [1].

Thomas Alexandre Dumas was one of several famous French officers of color. Napoleon famously mistreated another, Toussaint Louverture….

A statue of General Dumas was erected in Place Malesherbes (now Place du Général Catroux) in Paris in Autumn 1912 after a long fundraising campaign spearheaded by Anatole France and Sarah Bernhardt. It stood in Place Malesherbes for thirty years, alongside statues of Alexandre Dumas’s descendants Alexandre Dumas, père (erected 1883) and Alexandre Dumas fils (erected 1906), as well as of Sarah Bernhardt. Offended by this triumph of African ancestry over racism in general, and Austrian troops in particular, the deranged Nazis, challenged by the indomitable warrior spirit of this half African, destroyed it in the winter of 1941–1942. The statue below is more faithful to the appearance of general Dumas than the painting above:

 

Tom Reiss, in his (Pulitzer Prize-winning) biography of Thomas Alexandre Dumas, The Black Count, writes that “[Dumas] was a consummate warrior and a man of great conviction and moral courage. He was renowned for his strength, his swordsmanship, his bravery, and his knack for pulling victory out of the toughest situations. But he was known, too, for his profane back talk and his problems with authority. He was a soldiers’ general, feared by the enemy and loved by his men, a hero in a world that did not use the term lightly.”  

Thomas-Alexandre Dumas was a man of African descent leading European troops as a top general officer. He was the first person of color in the French military to become brigadier general, divisional general, and general-in-chief of a French army with 53,000 soldiers. His military career started under King Louis XVI.

Born in Saint-Domingue, Thomas-Alexandre was the son of Marquis Alexandre Antoine Davy de la Pailleterie, a French nobleman, and of Marie-Cessette DUMAS, a slave of African descent. He was born into slavery because of his mother’s status, but his father took him to France in 1776, spent lavishly on him, and had him educated. At some point the father, destitute, sold the son, and later repurchsed him!

Slavery had been illegal in metropolitan France since 656 CE (re-affirmed in 1315 CE, under Louis X, son of Philippe Le Bel) and thus any slave would be freed de facto by being in France (or anywhere in Western Europe, where Bathilde’s law applied, as most Western European regime’s were descendants of the Frankish/Carolingian/Roman empire…)

His father helped him enter the French military. Dumas took his mother’s name, because his father didn’t want the family name soiled by a low officer’s commission. Dumas Senior rose through the ranks, starting in 1786… in the Queen’s dragoons… Under Lafayette, he helped to kill insurgents… and was later exonerated by a revolutionary tribunal when he explained that to kill those 50 insurgents had saved 2,000…

***

General Dumas made few political statements, but those he made suggest deeply felt republican beliefs. One month after the French National Convention abolished slavery in the colonies (4 February 1794), Dumas sent a message to troops under his command, and that was the entire Army of the Alps, fighting Italy’s Austrian occupiers and collaborating Italians, who had been trying to invade France in the name of plutocracy:

“Your comrade, a soldier and General-in-Chief … was born in a climate and among men for whom liberty also had charms, and who fought for it first. Sincere lover of liberty and equality, convinced that all free men are equals, he will be proud to march out before you, to aid you in your efforts, and the coalition of tyrants will learn that they are loathed equally by men of all colors.” 

At that point Dumas was higher in the military hierarchy than Napoleon (who had just been promoted to general from captain, for his exploit of defeating the British in the siege of Toulon). Dumas led the 53,000 soldiers of the army of the Alps to victory, in the battles of Petit Saint Bernard and Mont Cenis. Dumas’ soldiers used revolutionary ice crampons to go up ice cliffs during combat. 

General Dumas joined the Army of Italy in Milan in November 1796, serving under the orders of commander-in-chief Napoleon Bonaparte. Napoleon was a political navigator, but also a bandit: tension between the two generals began as Dumas resisted Napoleon’s rapacious policy of allowing French troops to expropriate local property

In December 1796, Dumas was in charge of a division besieging Austrian troops at the city of Mantua. By Christmas he intercepted a spy carrying a message to the Austrian commander with important tactical information. On 16 January 1797, Dumas and his division halted an Austrian attempt to break out of the besieged city and prevented Austrian reinforcements from reaching Mantua. The French were thereby able to maintain the siege until French reinforcements could arrive, leading to the city’s capitulation on 2 February 1797. 

General Dumas was then forced by Napoleon’s hostility below his rank…. Under General Masséna in February 1797, Dumas helped French troops push the Austrians northward, capturing thousands. It was in this period that Austrian troops began calling him the der schwarze Teufel (“Black Devil”, or Diable Noir in French)

In late February 1797, Dumas transferred to a division commanded by General Joubert, who requested Dumas for his republicanism (in contrast to Napoleon’s dictatorial tendencies). Under Joubert, Dumas led a small force that defeated several enemy positions along the Adige River. Dumas’s achievement in this period came on 23 March, when the general drove back a squadron of Austrian troops at a bridge over the Eisack River in Clausen (today Klausen, or Chiusa, Italy). For this the French began referring to him as “the Horatius Cocles of the Tyrol” (after a hero who saved ancient Rome). Napoleon called Dumas by this, and rewarded him by making him cavalry commander of French troops in the Tyrol; he also sent Dumas a pair of pistols. Dumas spent much of 1797 as military governor, administering Treviso province, north of Venice. 

The expedition to Egypt was partly conceived by the Republic’s government in the secret hope that Napoleon would die there, but he didn’t. During the return debacle, Dumas was made prisoner, and spent several years in captivity. When finally liberated, he couldn’t restart his military career, as Napoleon’s dictatorship was in its bloom. Dumas soon died of stomach cancer…

His son and grandson would become extremely successful writers, a most honored profession in France. None of the Dumas got promoted and extolled as “black” men, because the French mentality was, and is, and should be, that they were men, great and glorious men, and no appearance could spoil or even interfere in any way, with their essence.

In recent years, though, under US influence, skin color has been advocated as an important factor to consider in France… This is an exact example of racism: judging people on how they look, or where their families came from.

Whereas skin color was not a consideration for advancement or minority status in Rome…for however long Rome lasted… And Rome lasted a long time… In Tenth Century “Francia”, peasants and aristocrats still thought they were living in Rome… And, we actually have strident revolutionary songs and philosphies from the time, where humanity is affirmed, and the equality among people, fustigating the pretentions of plutocrats (evil-power) soon to call themselves “aristocrats (best-power). In these ancient protests of the Tenth Century, which were crushed with mass massacres by the self-declared aristocrats, we see social justice struggling… but color never appears.  

In a way, so far, color blindness has been a Roman (not Greek! [2]) tradition which thereafter lived, and still lives in France. In what became the USA, we know exactly when the decision of brandishing color was taken: at the end of the Seventeetn Century, racist, greedy judges decided that “color” meant people were “aliens” and thus couldn’t own property. So wealthy and not so wealthy people with some African origins were dispossed by the thieves who founded what became the American US judicial system.

It’s no coincidence that the Frankish/Roman empire is at the cultural root of both the British and American regimes. The traditions of the Franks/Romans were the best, or, at least, on crucial points, superior. Thus any deviation should be carefully studied in the present civilization. But that starts with realizing that, until modern time, the color of skin was not a factor.

[1] Dumas in 1801, states “Marie-Cezette” will be in charge of General Dumas’s properties in Saint-Domingue. This evidence makes it unlikely that Marie-Cessette Dumas died earlier.

Thomas-Alexandre Dumas may have deliberately entered a false death date for his mom on the marriage certificate. He had a good reason to claim she was dead at the moment of his marriage in Villers-Cotterêts, France, in 1792. If she were living, he would have been required to consult her opinion on the marital union!

[2] The Greeks were much more racist than the Romans, and this is why they failed and the Romans succeeded. The Greeks expressed racism towards non Greeks, the Athenians expressed at some point racism against non-Athenians (stupid laws passed under Pericles, affecting his own son), and the Spartans were certainly racist against everybody (and Sparta died from this racism)

 

Tyrant Putin Genocidal Propaganda, September 16, 2022. One Man, One Bomb, No More Problem!

September 17, 2022

People living in democracy are empowered to express intelligence and initiative, so they are smarter than the vile subjects of base tyrannies.

Ukraine defense, in a long disinformation campaign, made the Russian army believe that all its effort was on liberating the city of Kherson, in southern Ukraine. The Russian dictatorship is not very smart, and finally, bleating like a flock of murderous carnivorous sheep, moved troops away from the most dangerous point of the very long frontline… This most dangerous point, for the Russian orcs, was where four Russian Ground Lines Of Communication, GLOCs, came together in Kupiansk.

Ukraine then succeed to put powerful mechanized units in ambush, and pierced through in a concentrated attack, routing the fascists (the attack had been in preparation since April, from what I could see on the map, as the Ukrainian saillant in the area, quite dangerous for Putin’s gangsters was left… apparently… unattended).

Dashing forward in a style they already revealed in 2014, Ukrainian units advanced 70 kilometers in a few days, and crossed here and there the next natural line of defense, the Oskyl river. What is the nuclear tyrant going to do now? Well his reply was to attack civilian infrastructure, de facto a war crime (see his declarations in the P/S), and destroy a dam, a de jure war crime (the dam was probably destroyed to hinder the Ukrainian pontoons over the Inhulets river).

So now there is a shift in rhetoric of the Russian tyranny owned talk shows. Here are some of the statements made on said talk shows the last day. First one of Putin’s personal squeeze ball, the famous mental and moral disaster named Olga:

Media criminal Olga Skabejeva said : “We have been humane far too long. Now that ends.” I have been waiting far too long for Olga to do hard labor in Siberia, after a detour at the Crime Against Humanity tribunal in La Hague… or then maybe she does like her cultural ancestor, Dr. Goebbels…

Igor Korotsjenko pitches in: “The time has come for Russia to take the silk gloves off. Now we must destroy Ukraine. We must act swiftly, without compromise and with brutality. We must bring darkness to all of Ukraine, region by region and drive all Ukrainians out as refugees so we can liberate Ukraine

Those who read the top Nazis’ declarations in WWII will not be surprised by the apparent contradiction, such as finding destruction liberating. The Nazis made plenty of these, because hatred knows no logical bounds. Igor tells “Rossija-1″ that “Now the real war begins. Everybody is attacking us left and right. We have no choice but to defend ourself with all we got against the west that is trying to destroy us.

Actually, 99.99% of the destruction, so far, has been on the national territory of Ukraine which Igor’s Czar invaded, a country which was independent 100 years ago, and joined the USSR as supposedly an independent republic. becoming a founding member of the United Nations 23 years later…

Konstantin Zatulin, a Russian politician, adds “We must take out all civilian infrastructure in Ukraine. We should have done this from the start!” That is indeed the theme of the Russian “milbloggers”, right wing ultra-Russia nationalists, fanatics with a military background, many of whom have millions of followers on Telegram in Russia. Milbloggers could never understand why Putin did not destroy all Ukrainian infrastructure to start with. However, easier said than done: Ukraine has been at war with Russia for 8 years, and in 2014, much of the action was total armored war, with great feats on Ukraine’s side. Ukraine has great expertise in war and military high tech, and Russia could not establish air supremacy over Ukraine.

Bogdan Bezpalko, member of the Kremlin’s Council for Interethnic Relations, says : “At this point we can not seperate civilian infrastructure from military infrastructure. We must destroy everything and make the Ukrainians freeze and starve to death”. A good Ukrainian is a dead Ukrainian, such are the best genocidal interethnic relations, as the USA demonstrated over the course of the three centuries in which it exterminated Indigenous Americans. Bezpalko stated that military officials who had failed to see the concentration of Ukrainian troops and equipment and disregarded Telegram channels that warned of the imminent Ukrainian counter-offensive in Kharkiv Oblast should have their heads ”lying on Putin’s desk.” Yes, killing Russian military is a better idea.

Senator Igor Morozov adds : “Why does Kyiv still exist? Dont we have rockets to flatten them? Shouldnt we start doing bombing Kyiv?”

Vladimir Solovyov, out to grab the entire globe, comes with a suggestion , “Why dont we recruit our friends from Cuba, North-Korea, Iran , Syria and Venezuela to replenish our army ranks? They can fight for us”. Actuallly Putin has been recruiting Chechens, Syrians, Tuvans, and various other Siberian ethnicities… For the first six month of the war, Moscovites were not recruited. Poor Vladimir Solovyov,  his villa on Lake Como, Italy, valued at more than 8 million Euros, was seized by Italian authorities, after the EU sanctioned him. Such properties should be sold, and the proceeds send to a fund compensating those hurt by the attack on Ukraine (seizing and freezing means nothing much, per se).

Similar considerations, less detailled, can be found in a Norwegian newspaper, which redeveloped arguments and analogies with the Nazis which I have long given:

Russiske politikere: – Nå er det slutt på å vise nåde

Etter den ukrainske motoffensiven har ordbruken om krigen blitt stadig tøffere på russiske TV-kanaler. En ekspert sier til VG at det er fascistiske tankeganger som kommer fram.
The Norse article adds that experts find the rhetoric in Russian talk-shows to be racist, fascist and similar to the arguments that Adolf Hitler used to justify his wars to reunite and liberate the Germanic people supposedly the object of abominable treatment throughout Eastern Europe: Putin and his goons, some of them above, have claimed that Russians are the object of a genocide in Ukraine. That’s their casus belli.

So the Slavic people must be “liberated and united” so that the Slavic people cannot be exterminated anymore. Similarly, Hitler falsely pretended that German minorities were abused in Eastern Europe. Hitler never dare to say that Germany had to be a master, or a slave. However, Putin pointed out, that Russia has to be sovereign, or will be a colony…. and somehow Ukraine, a Russian borderland controlled by Nazis (according to Putin) prevented this sovereignty.

Putin and his henchmen are afraid of a full war mobilization. The Russian milbloggers ask for it. However, sending the white ethnic Slavic Russians to the killing fields could lead to a major uprising. So right now it’s mostly outlying colonies of Moscow which are sent to war.

But that policey is failing. So now prisoners, murderers, are now  extracted from detention and offered a lot of money to go kill Ukrainians. But that’s not enough. So Putin ordered to destroy Ukrainian infrastructure. But many of his missiles get intercepted. So Putin launched hypersonic missiles at dams and thermal and power plants inside several major Ukrainian cities.

The talkshow hosts advocate for the destruction and genocide of the entire people of Ukraine and its culture , language and nation. Norwegian journalists asked Russian experts: “Does Putin agree with these horrific sentiments made on those Russian talkshows?”. The experts replied “These are all state approved talkshows where everything that will be said has been pre-approved by the government before the show is aired, so most likely yes.” The reason is simple: Putin is stuck: Modi, a supposed friend of the deranged Kremlin autocrat, openly criticized his war on Ukraine as harking from another age, on Friday, Sep. 16.

I know that today’s era is not the era for war,” Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi told Putin at a meeting in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. “We’ve spoken to you many times on the phone before on this, that democracy, diplomacy and dialogue — these things help the world.  In the coming days, we will get the chance to talk about how to move on to the road to peace…”

Putin approved talkshows portray the war is that Putin engaged in as a defensive war against the full might of the West world that is attacking Mother Russia  on all fronts, a western world that is ruled by a secret cabal of jews that wants to start a new holocaust and commit genocide against slavic people. First it was nazis that russian elite called ukrainians, now it’s zionists and jews. “The Kremlin falsely claims the worst Nazis were actually Jews, and seeks to downplay the role of antisemitism in Nazi ideology.”…Hitler may, or may not, have been a Jew, according to the Nazi definition of “Jewish”, invented by… Hitler himself, we don’t know, and he didn’t know. But Putin’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said: “wise Jewish people say that the most ardent anti-Semites are usually Jews.” … Thus the fact that Ukrainian president Zelinskiy is Jewish definitively proves that he is a Nazi, according to the Kremlin’s logic against all odds

When the PM of Israel officially protested, the Russia’s Foreign Ministry doubled down, accusing Israel of making “anti-historical statements” and alleging Israel supports a “neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv.” Solovyov, the top Russian pundit with Olga above, and their colleagues on Russia’s state television asserted Nazism does not necessarily imply antisemitism, but can instead reflect so-called “Russophobia.”

No nation attacked Russia. In 1939, gigantic Russia, then allied with Hitler, attacked tiny Finland. In 1940, Nazi tanks were fueled with Russian oil when Nazi tanks rolled into France. The Nazi-Kremlin alliance was greatly the cause of the French defeat, because the Kremlin had given orders to collaborate with the Nazis to the Communists, which it paid, just as Putin deimbiursed in excess of $300 million to influence the influencers in the West (it does more than that, as many Wesrern influencers are so much pro-Putin, they should be arrested… I read and listen to them, and prison is where they belong…)

Russia sent 200 000 troops to Ukraine’s borders promising not to invade, claiming it was just a regular military exercise. Fortunately Biden, not as naive as the professionally naive Obama, revealed the intelligence. Now Putin has a serious problem because the whole world will turn against him if he uses nuclear of chemical weapons… And Ukrainian air defenses are getting better all the time…

A western world that really didn’t want a conflict with Russia, to the point it accepted to become hostage of Putin in matter of energy, driven by the pseudo-ecologists and their hatred for technology and growth.

And now here we are: Putin will attempt to destroy Ukrainian infrastructure… and the Ukrainian know this, and have hardened it considerably. Fortunately, Putin has been trying to accuse the Russian military of incompetence… Whereas Putin has been in power for 23 years, and he is the one who has created an incompetent Russia. Putin keeps on changing the top generals… Putin may believ that the Russian elite military has been so wounded and killed by Ukrainians that it is incapable of a coup. We will see… But I believe a bloody military coup is getting increasingly plausible… After all, it’s a question of killing just one man. Hitler had made the entire Wehrmacht take an oath to him and make a deal, when he became Kanzler-President at the death of Hindenburg. Hitler, even after the Night of the Long Knives, had an impressive number of murderous goons around him: Goering (an authentic ace, war hero from WWI, and son of a genocider), Goebbels, Himmler, Heydrich, etc…  Putin? Not so much.

One man, one bomb…

As the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) puts it, September 16, 2022:

The revelations of mass graves of civilians and torture chambers in newly liberated Izyum confirm Institute for the Study of War’s previous assessments that the Bucha atrocities were not isolated war crimes but rather a microcosm of Russian atrocities throughout Russian-occupied areas. The Ukrainian General Staff published images on September 16 showing a mass burial site in Izyum, Kharkiv Oblast and noting that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the site contained more than 400 bodies showing signs of torture and brutality.[1] The Ukrainian Ministry of Reintegration reported that the number of war crimes victims in Izyum may exceed those of Bucha.[2] The head of Ukraine’s National Police, Ihor Klymenko, stated that Ukrainian officials have found 10 Russian torture chambers in Vovchansk, Kupyansk, Balaklia, and Izyum.[3] One torture chamber was reportedly located in the Balakliya police department, where “Russians wore masks and tortured civilians with bare electric wires,” according to Andriy Nebytov, the head of the National Police Main Directorate in the Kyiv region…

Russian President Vladimir Putin appeared to threaten increased attacks on Ukrainian civilian infrastructure if reported Ukrainian attacks on Russian military positions in Russian Federation territory continue. Putin said that Russia has been “rather restrained in our response” to Ukrainian “terrorist acts [and] attempts to damage our civilian [sic] infrastructure” in a question-and-answer session with reporters following the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting on September 16.[6] He continued “more recently, the Russian armed forces have dealt a couple of sensitive blows” that are “warning shots,” and threatened that more serious attacks could follow

Truth Is Our Religion

September 15, 2022

We have crossed the technological Rubicon, perhaps 6,000 years ago, when Neolithics men erected thousands of Menhirs, man made giant stones, generally aligned sometimes by the thousands, the greatest concentrations of them found in what is now France’s Brittany. The largest menhir known was nearly twenty-three meters tall, weighted 350 tons, and was probably ferried in a gigantic raft across the Gulf of Morbihan (the orthogneiss it was made of came from 20 kilometers away across the sea). The greatest set of menhir alignement is in Carnac, over 4 kilometers, involving several rows of menhirs. It seemed to have had an astronomical significance, according to Alexander Thom, the UK founder of archeoastronomy.

When I was very small child my dad, an Algiers-born geologist, carried me on his shoulders through such a field of menhirs. But he sprained an ankle badly and I had to call my mom for rescue. 

Rescues and tragedies are everywhere. The “Right Whale” is now no more than 350 individuals, 100 of whom are females. There used to be hundreds of thousands.  They were called “Right Whales” because they were slow, and could be caught easily, differently from, say, Blue Rorquals who outsped boats before steamships. Also, when dead, those fatty mammals would float to the surface.

They have long been protected, but their population is now facing extinction… from human activity.

Seafood Watch, part of the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California, provides scientific guidance to businesses, including some of the country’s major seafood buyers, about what they sell to customers. 

Seafood Watch put the American lobster, as well as some species of crab and fish, on its red list because of the effect fishing for lobsters has on North Atlantic right whales. Commercial fishers still use traps, to catch lobsters. Loaded with bait and lowered to the seafloor, they have one way tunnels to the kitchen. To recover the traps, they are connected to a buoy floating at the surface by a vertical line of rope.

Whales can easily become entangled in these ropes, which can prevent them from reaching the surface to breathe or from diving. Entangled whales may drag gear for years, causing deep lacerations.

And so it is, all around the biosphere: deep lacerations from human frolicking.

***  

Humanity has a huge, and increasing impact on the biosphere. With a population of 8 billion people, this impact is here to stay, and will only get worse as, say, everybody gets access to electricity (more than a billion people have no access to it).

There is no more wilderness: plastic and excess CO2 and other human generated poisons are everywhere. For example “wild” salmon eating “wild” fish ends up more contaminated with human made poisons than farm trout fed on genetically engineered soja.

The solutions out of these gigantic human impacts will be found along two main axes, and both have to be exploited: 1) we have to modify human behavior: say not eating lobsters until lobster procurement changes, because present lobster fishing kills into extermination Right Whales; or have Australians, Canadians and Americans reduce their CO2 emissions by 75%, to reach French or Swiss, and world average, levels of CO2 emissions… 4 tons of CO2 per person, per year… instead of the 20+ tons Australians are presently enjoying… and that doesn’t count all the coal they sell all over…

Before cutting CERN out, European authorities should cut out ski resorts which are huge consumers of power… to make artifical snow. Of course elected oligarchs will pontificate that millions live of, and from, and for, skiing on artificial snow. Let ski resorts use the renwable resources at their disposal! (Some do.)

We have to modify human behavior, and that means changing how we amuse ourselves.

2) we have to research, develop, deploy and use more advanced technology (here built smart, autonomous lobster traps). In any case we have to develop and progress. Shrinking back into old ways will only make the situation worse. Whereas what one should call colonial Anglo-Saxons, the Australians, Canadians and Americans want to keep on growing into Armageddon, the other excess is those (pseudo-) ecologists who argue for what they call de-growth (decroissance)… They are particularly festering and multiplying in France, with disastrous results…

We have to GROW mentally and energetically out of the problematic we are in. Cognitively, scientifically, technologically… Financing science, any science, is part of the solution. Present difficulties are from a lack of science, and, or lack of smarts (betting on the long tradition of Kremlin, or Chinese, dictatorships.) Developing science helps to develop smarts.

We have to progress towards a more scientific, more technological, more deliberate world. And debating the problems at hand, or over the horizon, is crucial, because only that way will the best solutions be found. Scientist have been derelict in evaluating the dangers we are in, and the solutions we urgently need to get out of our 84% dependency upon fossil fuels for primary energy (for example hydrogen and small batteries, instead of giant batteries and no hydrogen).

Paradoxically, the survival of the wilderness demands more, and smarter tech! Direct intervention to save entangled whales is one of these tech solutions. Recent science has revealed that whales tend to live very long lives, and that means their reproduction rate is much lower than once believed, thus any living adult whale is very hard to replace. And a source of knowledge: we don’t know what biology enables whales to live centuries. And what they talk about.

***

We don’t know what Neolithic Europeans, working three thousand years before the Celtic invasion, were thinking of, when they built those gigantic alignements of stones sculpted by men. Their motivations may have been similar to those of Easter Island Natives, 5,000 years later.

Why we want to go to the Moon and Mars is clear: those planets (yes, the Moon is a planet) are colonizable… Very likely: they have water.

Why were the Menhirs cut, shaped, transported, aligned and erected? They may have been early astronomical observatories of the movements of the Moon! 

Yes, science didn’t start a few centuries ago!

Truth Is Our Religion, says the Department of Defense of Ukraine…

Truth Is Has Long Been Our Religion

Truth is us.

Franco-British Strategic Nuclear Deterrence Is Considerable

September 13, 2022

Nuclear war may be around the corner, the deluded Putin, tail between his legs, is that crazy that he may not realize that his “escalate to de-escalate” insanity would be of no advantage to him and his criminal entourage. So it’s a good point to consider the main deterrent of the West: the strategic nuclear forces of the US, Britain and France (3 of the 5 powers allowed nuclear weapons under UN law). It turns out that, in a strategic nuclear exchange involving the ultimate weapon, the strategic nuclear submarines, the Franco-British contribution is equivalent to 50% of the US… No doubt that complicates considerably the computation of nuclear war planners who are criminal enough to work for Putin…

Who has a stronger navy: the United Kingdom or France (not counting nuclear submarines)?

Both European navies have Strategic Submarines Ballistic Nuclear. Four of them each. The French ones carry an armament of 16 M51 SLBM missiles manufactured by the Aérospatiale (now Airbus Defence and Space), plus conventional torpedoes and Exocet anti-ship missiles. The M51 missiles carries on a “bus” 6 to 10 MIRV warheads of 110 kiloton (kt) each, 8 times Hiroshima, with penetration aids, and a precision of 150–200 meters. One such missile could annihilate all the decision centers in Moscow (and millions of deluded Moscovites who watch too much Putin TV). The range of the M51 is secret, but believed to be around 10,000 kilometers (the same tech is used on the Ariane rocket).

These SSBNs are really Armageddon weapons… Yes Putin has them, sort of, namely at least on paper; but the devil is in the details: nukes have to work, and subs have to be undetected. France, the US, and the UK have dozens of hunter subs… Keeping nukes in good, that is explosive, order, cost a fortune (it’s unlikely all the 6,200 nukes of Putin work; it’s more likely that most of them, don’t work…)

To come back to France and Britain,

the two Navies are roughly comparable, and, the French having dutifully forgotten the tragedy of Mers El Kebir, and the Brits more than contrite about it, the two navies are more than friendly to each other. If Scotland seceded, British subs would use French bases. France Naval Group has launched its second 100 meter long nuclear powered Barracuda attack submarine, arguably the world’s most modern and silent sub. It is using a type of propulsion the US Navy plans to have around 2030… The Barracuda class subs can silence their nuclear reactors for long periods, something no other nuclear sub can do (yet). Hot nuclear reactors have always circulating water and tend to be noisy… whereas air independent diesel subs can made much more silent… and can be much more silent for a full month under water! The Barracudas have the best of the two technologies…
Although not directly strategic, such subs can hunt and destroy Putin and Xi’s subs…

One of the British SSBN used to be without nukes, but, considering the increasing Sino-Russian war noises, that has been reversed (nukes cost a lot of money to just keep ready to function; French nukes cost 5 billion dollars a year, just to keep them ready to explode with enough fresh Tritium, etc.). Also the French SSBNs have 100% French equipment, including French equivalents of the US Trident II. UK subs have US systems, US missiles, Trident II… Also the UK Navy uses Thales and other French electronics all over, for the UK subs and the UK ships. Thales is French (originally)… Thales also makes 24/7 in Belfast, Ireland, the British “NLAW” antitank weapons which have destroyed so many of Putin’s tanks.

British carriers are restricted to F35s, since they do not have catapults (which make the French carrier interoperable with the US ones; CATOBAR enables it to launch heavier, more capable planes).

The real defect of Franco-British defense is not quality, which is top notch, but having too few weapons. Macron, following Biden by a few months, has called the French military-industrial complex to go into a war mode. However the expanded French military budget has not been voted on yet, and it takes time to ramp up. Thales is producing nearly enough electronics for five Rafales a month.

All the British nuclear deterrent is in its 4 SSBNs… the French have the same number of SSBNs, but also also nuclear bombers and supersonic standoff 300kt nuclear missiles). So Franco-Britannia has 8 strategic nuclear subs so silent once two collided with each other while deep in the ocean… whereas the US has 14 such submarines… In other words, the nuclear strategic strike capability of the West is considerably augmented by the Franco-British arsenal. Just one of these 22 subs could kill of the order of 50 million people in 20 minutes, and as a French general officer commented:”We think that’s enough!”.

However, tyrant Putin has definitively demonstrated that this is not enough, because threatening the enemy with Armageddon does not help fight a conventional war.

British SSBN going back home in Scotland…

Dying Of A Broken Heart Is The Evolutionary Thing To Do

September 11, 2022

Is dying of a broken heart an evolutionary trait? Yes. Because it saves energy whena person’s utility to the group has vanished. The sudden death of Queen Elizabeth drew attention to this: one day she commented on a dark cloud coming to a photographer, as she could see a storm gathering in the distance, from her Balmoral castle in Scotland… a few minutes before receiving the new female Prime Minister, Liz Truss. The next day the Queen was dying. 

WHY WOULD DYING OF A BROKEN HEART BE EVOLUTIONARY ADVANTAGEOUS?

Survival of the fittest means also not just the fittest individual, but the fittest group of individuals. With human species, old individuals didn’t bring the bacon in, but brought in how to bring the bacon in, and many other pieces of wisdom only revealed in the fullness of time…

In other words old individuals such as Queen Elizabeth, the elderly, weak and difformed could still bring irreplaceable know-how which prehistoric people needed to survive. 

However, such Old individuals tend to die readily when their heart is broken. And not only them, but younger ones too. 

Why? 

How and why did the broken heart trait evolve? 

Because the “heart” is an indicator of happiness. That happiness flows, in part, from the social need the individual feels to be personally filling up. A broken heart indicates one has lost social utility.

True happiness also flows from satisfying animal needs: hunger, thirst come first.

However, for the old, many of these animal needs stopped being so pressing, for a number of reasons, including sensory failure and other basic mechanisms failure: for example, there is less hunger and thirst to satisfy when one feels neither hungry nor thirsty.  Cuddling is probably still an oxytocin enhancer, but a cat will do.

What remains in older age is the need to fulfill a social function. In prehistoric society that meant the old teaching to the less experienced. A broken heart, though, indicates that this function is not fulfilled anymore. The old one has just become a mouth to feed. Short in food yet pragmatic, many North American Indian tribes left the old to die in the wilderness.

Queen Elizabeth at 96…

Charles III was amply prepared, the queen, undermined by infirmities didn’t have the love of her life by her side, Philip, who died at 99, after driving until 98 (and causing an accident when he was blinded by the low sun). Philip, an authentic war hero (he played a crucial role as a commander in a crucial sea battle against the fascist italian navy), was of great counsel and the queen may have felt out of her usual depth advising all including Prime Ministers and family members, now that she had lost her sounding board.

The queen had lost her utility, her broken heart told her, so she died.  

Some have professed to want the queen to die an “excruciating death”. They are typically employed, not to say owned, by the plutocratic establishment so called “universities” which has put them in charge of stupidifying the youth. The idea was that she should suffer for the enslaving empire (except slavery stopped being lawful in England in 1066 CE… when England was really born and not just a Viking playground anymore). However, we do not choose how we were born. Queen Elizabeth had a dignified life and made pretty well out of it. Could she have done better according to my own criterions? Of course, but that’s from out there, Africa, America, and in insight.

I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying,” Dr. Uju Anya, an associate professor of second language acquisition at Carnegie Mellon University, wrote in a tweet on Thursday. “May her pain be excruciating.” 

Anya knows no history: none of the alleged crimes happened during Elizabeth’s life.

Jeff Bezos, the world’s third-richest man in stock market capitalization, then quoted Anya’s tweet and tweeted back: “This is someone supposedly working to make the world better?” 

I don’t think so,” Bezos added. “Wow.” 

Later Carnegie Mellon said Anya’s hatred “absolutely do not represent the vie of the university“…

But Anya’s Deep State satanic influencers who direct that her and her ilk be employed in making the youth better, Pluto’s way, saw hatred through division. Anya does her job well. However hatred, in this day and age, in its ultimate expression, is nuclear war. Anya then pushes for it by glorifying misplaced hatred, and teaching that this is the righteous way.

Elizabeth never did that. That made her a better role model than many a “humanity” department has to offer nowadays…

Patrice Ayme

Elizabeth Philip was her man when she met him, and she was 13…

***

P/S: I am of course against the monarchy, an institution obsolete already 25 centuries ago. However, it would have been better if the British-Indian Raj had kept Elizabeth as queen (no silly wars between Muslims and Hindus, killin millions, as happened). The preceding essay is just about a broken heart, and one must recognize that, given her karma, as an individual, except for not expressing herself clearly on the question of Brexit (she was against it), she did a very good job… Whatever her job was supposed to be.  

Monarchy keeps on reappearing. In Britain, it’s constitutional… Yet, all the way down the Eighteenth Century, it could be nasty. 

Queen Anne, upon accessing the throne in 1701, immediately declared war on France (Louis XIV of France had recognized earlier the rightful heir, James III ,the “Old Pretender”, as rightful king of England and Scotland (September), prompting Parliament to legislate for an oath requiring a public abjuration of the Stuarts’ claim to the throne). Queen Anne, upon dying in 1714, was succeeded by someone from… Hannover (Germany). It’s British plutocracy which rules…

Last time a monarch intervened, in England, with a veto against parliament was Queen Anne in 1708, when she blocked the reestablishment of a Scottish militia by the London Parliament in Scotland, “An Act for settling the Militia of that Part of Great Britain called Scotland”… the fear of the Queen being then that Scotland would join France in battling England…

It is the ongoing exercise of the veto power of the monarch which precipitated the US war of independence, because George III kept on refusing “assent” for many laws proposed by local governments in America…

Tyrant Putin is a monarch, but he doesn’t have the excuse Elizabeth did, to have inherited the charge… so that makes him technically what the Greeks called a tyrant (from unique in Greek)…. besides his advertised desire to bury the world in radioactive ashes if it doesn’t accept Kremlin suzerainty.

BIG BANG NEVER HAPPENED?

September 4, 2022

SQPR, Sub Quantum Physical Reality, dispenses from the Big Bang alltogether, replacing it by a very long duration, maybe 100 billion years, slow expansion driven by Dark Energy, an emerging property caused by SQPR (this emergence explains the Hubble tension, as the expansion is accelerating).

The present Big Bang reigning model is called the Lambda Cold Dark Matter model. ΛCDM is god-like, yet even more precise than the Bible: it knows everything there is to know about the first three minutes, not just seven days, and all the peaks of temperature in cosmic weather, 14 billion years ago… All this precious precision arises from supposing a lot of things… many of which have never been observed, but hypothesized to make the ΛCDM fit apparent observations. 

An example is the Inflaton Field. Nobody has seen an Inflaton. It’s supposed to have accelerated the expansion of the universe just so, many orders of magnitude beyond the speed of light. There is no hope of seeing the Inflaton appear at CERN. The Inflaton inflates all, hence its name. However, there is something else that inflates, namely Dark Energy… Dark Energy showed up as the accelerated distanciation of Type I Supernovae… by a number of teams. The Nobel Prize was awarded, so strong is the experimental evidence for this Dark Energy. Question: why would the universe have two distinct inflation mechanisms, one observed, Dark Energy, and the other, the Inflaton, to please cosmologists and their book publishers, thrilled by the market power of the first minutes of god?

ΛCDM evolved from the Big Bang, which was criticized from its onset. To ridiculize it, physicist George Gamow invented the term “Big Bang”. Little did he know that his mockery would become sacrosanct…

ΛCDM assumes that Dark Matter was there from the beginning, and brought galaxies into existence. So galaxies should start small, and then accrete. We should see that in the distance. However, the six meter space telescope is revealing enormous, well formed spiral monsters, out there in the most distant past…. While more recent galaxies turn out to be smaller… and the latter were expected to be bigger from increasing accretion caused by Dark Matter. it’s the universe upside down!

The El Gordo galactic cluster, a large structure located at seven billion light-years, is more consistent with cosmological simulations in the framework of Modified Newtonian Dynamics MOND due to more rapid structure formation. I do not believe in MOND, because it’s ad hoc, but SQPR, which does not contradict Newtonian Dynamics as grossly as MOND does, is fully compatible with El Gordo… And SQPR was derived to solve problems in Quantum Physics… It’s not ad hoc, like MOND, stated just to depict what gravity acts like… If Dark matter did not exist (but there is evidence it does, see the Bullet Cluster, which looks impossible to explain without Dark Matter).    

ΛCDM assumes that Cosmic Background Light does not get tired: all the observed Cosmological Redshift is caused by the expansion of the universe, according to ΛCDM. Interestingly the Cosmological Principle (that the universe looks everywhere the same, from everywhere) seems to be violated by observations, as there is a motion discrepancy, and other visual asymmetries between Cosmic Microwave Background and motions of dstant quasars (inter alia). As a result of the Hubble tension in cosmology, some researchers have called for new physics beyond the ΛCDM model…. But they stay prisoners of the Standard Model of QFT, which predicts neither DM nor DE.

Considering Quantum Entanglement at a cosmological scale, there are good reasons to believe it would break asymmetrically. Assuming Asymmetric Quantum Entanglement Collapse (AQEC), brings forth the SQPR theory, in which there is just one inflation mechanism, light gets a bit tired, Dark Matter, and Dark Energy are both emergent and with a common origin, namely AQEC.

The very precision of the ΛCDM model obtained from a lot of suppositions, makes it brittle. If anything changes, it’s going to change everything,”as a famous cosmologist put it. It is entirely possible that dead cosmologists confused appearances and reality, by making suppositions about reality, 14 billion years ago, more compatible with the Bible of their childhood… than with what modern telescopes see.

A model can fit to “observations” pretty well, and be completely wrong, as happened with Ptolemaic astronomy. The professionalization of science is no guarantee against that, far from it. Well paid and honored professionals have no interest to rock the boat they are first class passengers of.

The galaxies seen in this Hubble/JWST composite are much more clearly resolved in the JWST version. If spectroscopy can be performed on individual components of the same galaxy, something that long-enough exposures should enable even for the distant galaxies seen here, we should be able to measure the rotational properties of the material inside, putting various dark matter models and modified gravity theories… AND SQPR!… to the test. (Credit: NASA, ESA, CSA, and STScI; NASA/ESA/Hubble (STScI); composite by E. Siegel)

P/S:

The Big Bang never happened” says Eric Lerner, a longtime advocate of an alternative cosmology to the mainstream, known either as a plasma cosmology or the electric universe.

Solar coronal loops, such as those observed by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) satellite here in 2014, follow the path of the magnetic field on the Sun. Although the Sun’s core may reach temperatures of ~15 million K, the edge of the photosphere hangs out at a relatively paltry ~5700 to ~6000 K. Magnetohydrodynamics, or MHD, play important roles in many astrophysical environments, but are not responsible for large-scale cosmic structure. (Credit: NASA/SDO)

The plasma universe was first proposed by Hannes Alfvén in the mid-1960s. With such high energies, large numbers of charged particles, and dense environments, cosmological electric and magnetic fields could get quite large.

Alfvén wound up developing the field of physics that’s now known as magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), which plays important roles:

  • in the environments of stars and stellar remnants,
  • in plasmas throughout stellar systems and the interstellar medium,
  • around black holes and neutron stars,
  • and throughout galaxies, where they help shape large-scale magnetic fields.

For his revolutionary work, Alfvén won the 1970 Nobel Prize, and MHD is now an essential part of a wide variety of astrophysical applications.

Alfvén went a step farther when he proposed his plasma cosmology, asserting that perhaps, on cosmic scales, gravity isn’t all that important, and that instead, electric and magnetic fields and forces were responsible for shaping the Universe. In this model of the Universe, a wide variety of observables with a standard explanation within the Big Bang paradigm would need to be replaced with a wild alternative.

This Alfvén universe must be cyclic, which seem contrary to observations. Such is not the case with MOND and SQPR, which are compatible with an expanding, evolving universe.

White Supremacy And Other Obsessions Conveniently Hide The Most Vicious Mentality: Enslaving Greed.

September 3, 2022

I was raised in Black Africa. My father was from Algeria. So are my first memories. My African background always made me proud, different, and sharply critical of the mouthwash which passes for anti-colonialist discourse… whatever de-colonialism is supposed to mean, it should be based in reality (whereas most anti-colonialist hysteria has been a smokescreen for contemporary corruption and plutocratization).

Historical distortion is a very practical method of mind control, and much loved by the hyper wealthy controlling Deep State, schools and universities.  

Berkeley High School in California, supposed to be a temple of progressivism, justice, goodness, starts the description of its curriculum with a long rant on “White Supremacy”. So, according to Berkeley High, “White Supremacy” is the world’s most important notion and the core of what it teaches. Them and Hitler.

A related attitude wallops in the misery of slavery. Supposedly a large part of the world “colored” population was enslaved, according to the said color of their skin (in the US one can be perfectly white and considered “black”). Except for the two top brownish ones: Obama’s father was an important free Kenyan official who was sent to Harvard for a PhD (by the powers that be) and VP Kamala Harris descends from Mr. Harris, a wealthy British lawyer and slave owner who recognized a brownish ancestor of Kamala as his own progeny (so Harris, like Obama, are of privileged background… So is Michelle Obama… It happens to “blacks” too 

***

The obsession with skin color, slave background and so on, is, the way it is used, very obsessively, a distraction. Not to say those concepts do not exist in reality and are not serious problems. 

But… The “West” was not conquered, and the Natives not massacred, in the name of skin color: initially it was just greed which was the engine of genocide from the “West Country Men” who planned to exterminate the Natives… very deliberately, who founded the “Virginia Company“. So it is greed, unhinged, which is the fundamental flaw, and that was clear, as early as 1609, when the father of Pocahontas decried that mentality expressly 

 All this maximal viciousness naturally evolved into slavery… which was more benign, in a sense, because greed compels, in the average, to keep one’s property alive:

“Whether racism caused slavery or vice versa, by mid-century Africans had arrived in Virginia in significant numbers and many were held in lifetime servitude. In the 1640s, Africans were described in legal records as servants ‘forever,’ and their children assumed that same status at birth as in the sale of ‘one Negro girle [sic] named Jowan … and with her issue and produce during her (or either of them) for their Life tyme [sic]. And their successors forever.’ Legislative punishments in the 1640s began to differentiate between white servants, whose time could be extended, and blacks, whose time could not because they were already bound in perpetuity. In 1639, Virginia prohibited arming Africans…

…Between the first English settlements in 1634 and enactment of the first decisive slave statute thirty years later, black Marylanders lived through a period obscure to us, when the status of many of them evolved from some form of unfreedom like servitude to explicit slavery. Slavery, as a legal institution, evolved over time, originating in servitude, which was based on a contractual assumption, but mutated out of such voluntaristic origins into something that was a consequence of skin color and parental status. … In Maryland, as elsewhere in early America, evolving racist thought, combined with economic opportunism, led whites to create piecemeal a legally enforced condition of slavery for black Marylanders. A 1639 statue, ‘An Act for the Liberties of the People,’ confirmed the rights of Englishmen for ‘all the inhabitants of this Province being Christians (Slaves excepted).’ ” [[William W. Wiecek, “The Origins of the Law of Slavery in British North America,” Cardozo Law Review, Vol. 17, No. 6, May, 1996, pp. 1755-1756 and Ibid., p. 1761].

***

In 1655 CE, Anthony Johnson, a black man, sued for getting back from a free white man, John Parker, a black indentured servant he had, John Casor, claiming Casor was a slave in perpetuity. Jonhson won the case, and he is often brandished as evidence that black men introduced black slavery in the English colonies. However, after his death in 1670, a court ruled he was a negro, thus an “alien” and the state seized his land: we can see that the racism, greed, and slavery was growing in a stately manner

 “As early as 1639 we hear of a Negro slave in Pennsylvania. In 1644 Negroes were in demand to work the lowlands of Delaware. … Negro slaves were sold in Maryland in 1642. … There is evidence to show that the status of the Negro was at first very closely affiliated with that of the white servant with whom the colonists were thoroughly familiar and who stood half way between freedom and complete subjugation. It is probable, therefore, that both Indian and Negro servitude preceded Indian and Negro slavery in all the colonies, though the transition to slavery as the normal status of the Negro was very speedily made.” [John M. Mecklin, “The Evolution of the Slave Status in American Democracy, Part I,” The Journal of Negro History, Vol. II, No. 2, April, 1917, p. 106]

Slavery in Virginia existing prior to Anthony Johnson’s case in 1655: “Not until 1630 is there any evidence of legal distinctions between Negro and white servants in Virginia. In September the General Court ordered ‘Hugh Davis to be soundly whipped, before an assembly of Negroes and others for abusing himself to the dishonor of God and the shame of Christians, by defiling his body in lying with a negro.’ It is not completely clear whether Davis was punished for his fornication because his paramour was a Negro, or perhaps only because she was unbaptized. A clearer distinction was made by an act of the Assembly in January, 1639, providing that ‘All persons except negroes’ should be armed.’ This was the first of the long train of statutory discriminations that would ultimately make of the Negro a slave. Servitude for life was first recorded in Virginia in July, 1640, in a case involving runaway servants. All three were sentenced to receive thirty stripes. Two of them, a Scot and a Dutchman, were required to serve an additional four years ‘after the time of their service is expired … ; the third being a negro named John Punch,’ was ordered to serve ‘his … master or his assigns for the time of his natural life.’ ” [Paul C. Palmer, “Servitude Into Slave: The Evolution of the Legal Status of the Negro Laborer in Colonial Virginia,” South Atlantic Quarterly, Vol. LXV, No. 3, Summer, 1966, pp. 356-357].

The preceding mentality shows that slavery in the USA is an American-American problem. The tendency to depict US slavery as foremost a mental consequence of “White Supremacy” or European “colonialism” is barking up the wrong tree. 

Slavery with chains is not with us anymore. We have more advanced tech. Instead it’s slavery with poor public school education, opiates, Obamacare, tech monopolies, robber barons put in place by the state to control us all… And so on: US life expectancy has been collapsing ever since Obamacare was implemented, and it was intended that way, as the Democratic Party proudly claimed the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) would augment health care cost for 95% of the population (supposedly to finance the lowest 5%… in truth to make the health car plutocracy wealthier…)

Most Americans, both black and white, believe that slavery was a system maintained by whites to exploit blacks, but this authoritative study reveals the extent to which African Americans played a significant role as slave masters. Examining South Carolina’s diverse population of African-American slaveowners, the book demonstrates that free African Americans widely embraced slavery as a viable economic system and that they–like their white counterparts–exploited the labor of slaves on their farms and in their businesses. Drawing on the federal census, wills, mortgage bills of sale, tax returns, and newspaper advertisements, the author reveals the nature of African-American slaveholding, its complexity, and its rationales. He describes how some African-American slave masters had earned their freedom but how many others–primarily mulattoes born of free parents–were unfamiliar with slavery’s dehumanization.

WHAT IS THE MOST BRUTAL TRUTH ABOUT WORLD WAR 2?

September 2, 2022

WW2 Could Have Been Avoided If The United States’ Deep State Had Not Intended To Use WW2 To Seize World Power! A Most Brutal Truth About World War 2!

Both in World War One and World War Two, the US economic and diplomatic might was originally allied, for years, with various German and European fascism regimes, including the USSR, and thus enemy with “representative” democracies France and the UK… The US de facto help to fascism weakened both France and the UK crucially… as intended.., because the US Deep State wanted to subjugate the world, and that started with the subjugation of Europe. All the more as Europe had established gigantic protectorates around the world, which adminstratively hindered giant US corporations (but fascist regimes, just as China today, and for the same reasons, were enthusiastic in cooperating with US plutocracy! [1]) US plutocrats could not muster armies to invade Europe directly, as the US is a offshoot of Europe, and especially of France and Britain. The solution for US plutocrats, and it presented them with many opportunities, was to foster fascism in Europe, from Moscow to Lisbon.

In particular, US busting of the blockade of Germany and Austria-Hungary enabled those fascist powers to keep on waging war (when the blockade became effective after the US had finally joined France and Britain, German explosive production collapsed to a tenth (10%) of the French one, which enabled the French to crush the last, and most massive German attack on Paris in a deluge of steel (second batle of the Marne, July-August 1918). 

So great was the pull of German fascism that it succeeded to put Lenin in power, and then, until Hitler attacked the USSR, the latter was an ally of German fascism… And US plutocracy… which heaped gigantic investments on all European fascist regimes (mostly Italy, the USSR, Germany, and Spain in this chronological order).

The US Deep State (prominently represented by oligarchic heirs such as the Harriman brothers, etc…), wittingly or not, pulled the strings just right, so that the world order came to be ruled after the war… by the USA. Even Stalin, initially allied to Hitler, was helped by the US government in a way the French Republic was not… and just a year after France fell to Nazi tanks fueled by Russian oil… [2].

Had the US directly helped France and Great Britain in 1939 or 1940, the war would have turned completely differently: the Nazi Reich would have been promptly defeated, Japan would not have attacked the US… Instead the US applied sanctions for belligerence, in 1939… against France and Britain, for having declared war to the Nazis. Later in the war, starting as early as mid-1941, massive US governmental help to Stalin, extending the private help from US plutocrats, blossomed into the Yalta Treaty, which gave half of Europe to Stalin. Then FDR rushed to make another evil pact, this time with Ibn Saud, a triangular exchange of fostering Fundamental Islamism against oil, the revenues of which would be placed on Wall Street.

Harriman was viewed by many Soviet leaders as more important than Stalin, and the real Czar, because the American enabled the Baku oil fields production to thrive, through massive investment providing US know-how. Many other US plutocrats played similar roles in fascist Italy, Germany and Spain. A lot of the help was provided with credit lines, nit just direct investment. Harriman was the only one to get the top honors of both the Reich and the USSR. Harriman was also the puppet master of the Democratic Party.

This world order has been in place since. It is covered up by the blanket declaration that only lunatics make theories about conspiracies, and impudent US declarations against colonialism and genocides, supposedly historically committed by the Europeans, in the grand hypocritical tradition founded by Washington and Jefferson. But actually the country that committed the greatest colonialism and genocide was the US itself (Australia and Canada are very distant second). This is why, historically speaking, the US was white and Latin America much less so.

The US strategy of favoring fascism in the 1930s was clearly evidenced in the way in which FDR treated his own ambassador in Berlin, his friend, the University of Chicago historian Dodd. Dodd, a Southerly gentleman specialist of the Secession War, and excellent friend to the French ambassador Francois-Poncet, thought the Nazis had to be fought to death, and could not be negotiated with. He so informed Roosevelt in 1937, and FDR reacted by replacing his ambassadors in Berlin and London by Nazi friendly characters (the one in London was Kennedy, father of JFK). When France made a cease-fire with the Nazis at the end of June 1940, FDR sent his right hand man, 4 star admiral William Leahy, to Vichy, thus recognizing that fascist dictatorship collaborating with Hitler as a legitimate regime (it was not).

Some will contest the very notions of conspiracies, plots, uppermost classes, social networks, plutocratic universities, corporations and corporate board class, old boys network, and how all these social connections created a US upper class which longed to help fascism and undermine democracy, knowing full well it was a win-win situation [3].  

It is a hard pill to swallow that Auschwitz and its ilk were among the deliberate costs for establishing the US world empire (the US Deep State and its media hid the holocaust the Nazis organized. Indeed, they were told explicitly by French, Polish and Jewish authorities, among others, of millions already assassinated). But, as long as reality is not faced, it can’t be improved.

Blitzkrieg: German armor, fueled by RUSSIAN oil, invades France in 1940. The proximal reason for the fall of France in May-June was the effective betrayal by the top general, Gamelin. The basic reason for the fall was that the US Deep State did its best to make it happen, including giving guarantees to France which the FDR government then ignored.

In the 1930s, obsessed by its own advancement, the US government and its pupett master, the US Deep State, betrayed democracy. It is a most brutal truth. It is also true that the Biden adminstration did not repeat the mistake in 2022. Why? Things have changed, and the confused knowledge of what went wrong in the 1930s, although the US profited from it, is slowly rising to the surface, as is the notion that, with weapons more powerful than ever, fascism, especially of the invasive type, is better nipped in the bud.

Humanity progresses, one wisdom at a time…

The US Deep State, ever since Obama day number one, has pushed frantically for transitioning to a 100% battery economy (by contrast to partly green hydrogen or nuclear). This is an example of a maneuver to cooperate with fascism, disguised as its exact opposite: more than 80% of the batteries, worldwide, are made in China; 7% in the USA. Watch what they do, not what they say they do..

[2] There was private US help to France and Britain, the best example being the fighter bomber Mustang, originally a Franco-British government contract with a private US company… The plane was so well designed from Franco-British requirements, that it became the best US fighter later.

Nuclear War Is An Argument In Favor Of Civilian Nuclear Power!

August 30, 2022

That sounds counter-intuitive. However, “renewables” would shut down during nuclear winter, making a bad situation way worse. Those who hate nuclear civilian energy apparently never thought carefully about nuclear war, nuclear winter, and V7 volcanic eruptions. Or then they do as if they never heard of them: these large scale, “renewables” extinguishing catastrophes are not over their mental horizons. After trying to addict us to Putin, now shallow thinkers and the emotionally frayed, may prepare for us an even more ominous fate… 

Indeed “renewables” partisans, meaning getting energy from sun and wind, as in the High Middle Ages, never seem to contemplate what will happen when it doesn’t shine and blow. One such occasion is nuclear war and its accompanying “nuclear winter”. “Nuclear winter” is an ancient notion which got reinvigorated recently with new simulations (in the famous scientific journal Nature, August 2022). 

***

Volcanic eruptions can have drastic impacts on atmospheric composition and climate. They, furious igneous province volcanism, caused the greatest mass extinction ever. Powerful explosive eruptions can inject large amounts of SO2, ash, water vapor and various other chemical species into the stratosphere. Volcanic SO2 injected into the stratosphere is chemically converted to sulfuric acid vapor H2 SO4 over a timescale of days to months, causing substantial new particle formation and aerosol growth by condensation. This can be long lasting, with particle concentrations remaining substantially enhanced for several years in the case of tropical eruptions: Krakatoa’s magnificent sunsets were well documented, worldwide, for three years after 1883.

 

Pinatubo, a VE6 eruption in 1991, injected 10 million tons of SO2 in the high atmosphere (according to simulations), The stratospheric veil Pinatubo created lowered temperatures worldwide by one degree Celsius, slowing down the human GreenHouse Gas catastrophe.

 

In 1815, Mount Tambora in Indonesia next to Bali, unleashed the largest known volcanic eruption in documented history. The volcano’s elevation reached more than 4,300 meters (14,100 feet) high. Now it’s only 2850 meters: it lost its upper mile. The region, over thousands of miles, was plunged in total darkness for four days. In the following months, Tambora’s ash and sulfur dioxide clouds rose and spread worldwide, blocking enough sunlight to produce “the year without a summer”— in 1816 that resulted in massive crop failures and famine across the globe. Europe froze in July and August. Tambora was a VE7 volcanic eruption. VE7s volcanic eruptions occur every 125 years on average (over the last 100,000 years. Better: every 10,000 years or so, on average, earth is graced with a VE8 eruption.

 

No more solar, and no more wind either, both being activated by solar energy which can’t reach the ground when it’s blocked in the stratosphere (above 12 kilometers altitude). 

***

Some may object that Vulcan will be favorable in the next few centuries, and produce no VE7 eruption, out of deference for humanity. Maybe. However one will also need Mars to be favorable, and organize no nuclear war. As the Russian dictator’s hysteria has shown, one little tyrant can blackmail the entire planet into nuclear submission, or at least try to. 

Many scientists have considered that fires ignited by hundreds or thousands of nuclear explosions would release millions of tons of soot, blocking sunlight and inducing global environmental effects. I am not as pessimistic as they are (soot should not get as high as SO2 from Pinatubo, Krakatoa or Tambora). However, what the most recent studies by the most prominent “nuclear winter” study group show is the following. 

 

A few years after a nuclear war between the United States, its allies, and Russia, the global average calories produced would drop by about 90%—leaving an estimated 5 billion dead from the famine, the research group reported. A worst-case war between India and Pakistan could drop calorie production to 50% and cause 2 billion deaths. The team tried to simulate the impact of food-saving emergency strategies, such as converting livestock feed and household waste to food. But in the larger war scenarios, those efforts did little to save lives.

 

An obvious solution to nuclear winter in the most advanced economies would be to produce food in shelters, using hydroponics and artificial lighting. However, that requires lots of energy… which will then not be available from renewables!  

In general, the AWE (Absolute Worth Energy) of modern technology has been ramping up: it costs more and more total absolute energy to make increasingly sophisticated machines, such as a smart phones or flying machines. Data themselves are requiring more and more energy: giant servers are installed in Arctic regions to reduce the cost of cooling them, etc.

Intermittent blow and shine renewables are leading to war, but have not experienced full world war yet. Instead intermittent blow and shine renewables are cannibalizing the entire energy sector, trillions of subsidies at a time… precisely because humanity has not experienced a VE7 or nuclear winter recently…

So we see that depending upon intermittent blow and shine renewables to too great an extent is a strategic error (strategos means general in Greek). Worse even it freezes us in the present situation: a huge dependency (84%!) on fossil fuels, and a rising dependency on “renewables”. As the invasion of Ukraine has shown, the world economy is highly dependent, for food and energy upon peace and transportation.

The solution, once again, is to develop nuclear technologies, without forgetting Thorium (which could warm up Norway, as its name indicates). Thorium, which is fertile, not fissile, has a great, and safe, future. 

***

It is thrilling to see that pseudo-ecologists and various other hypocritical peaceniks, in their urge to foster their pathetic view of the universe, are causing the very conditions they claim to be determined to avoid. 

Indeed, the policies pseudo-ecologists promote, the toxic mix of fossil fuels, wind and sun make the world increasingly dependent upon… fossil fuels  (total coal usage is at its highest ever in 2022, and projected to rise further in 2023!). One of the reasons the Kremlin dictator attacked is that he believed Europe could not be without Russian fossil fuels, and thus would submit to his will. 

Fossil fuels are dictator friendly, because they are capital intensive (hence plutocrat friendly, and plutocrats love dictators, being themselves of the same ilk)… and yet require relatively few highly skilled workers (geologists, engineers, technicians)… Nuclear is also capital intensive, but requires a huge academic background (especially in the present situation: deploying high temperature reactors, or Thorium reactors, optimally, bring in the need for massive fundamental research)… Thus nuclear energy deployment would be brain intensive… exactly what the world’s plutocratic order doesn’t like.

The more dependent upon dictators the world is, the greater the danger of war, thus, nuclear war (nukes make bigger booms). The more fragile the world economy is, the more susceptible to blackmail by bellicose dictators the world is… And the more brainless from too much pseudo-ecology, pseudo-democracy, pseudo-philanthropy by self-obsessed sharks, the world is, the more trouble there will be. 

The cost of brainlessness is war

Make no mistake, as the hypocritical Obama would say, I am all for solar power (wind, not so much)… As long as it is accompanied by (green and, or nuclear) hydrogen and nuclear power… Only thus can we significantly reduce our dependence on fossil fuels (which are used for all sorts of plastics, not just burning). The needed balance between intermittents (plus hydrogen!) and nuclear should be such that, in the case of complete failure of blow and shine for months (from a VE8 or a strong nuclear winter), the civilian nuclear sector could marginally hope to provide enough power for the basic services, including food production.

No, pseudo-ecologists and partisans of the return to the Neolithic, you can’t put nuclear energy back into the bottle as in one of these movies which constitute most of the culture you have. Nuclear energy has been militarized, and was launched by French partisans of world peace as early as 1938, because the Curies, who were as intellectual (Nobel prize winners!) and humanistic (early development of nuclear medicine; communists and fanatical partisan of world peace) understood that it was moral to nuke the Nazis, and that it could turn in an existential necessity.

Want world ethics? Want planetary safety? Put more real intelligence in charge

Patrice Ayme

Tonga Volcano Ash as seen from the International Space Station, January 2022. The top plume of that 10 megaton explosion reached 55 kilometers. That was a VE5! A VE7 (like Tambora, every 125 years on average) could explode with 1000 Megatons at its worst moment. Ash would be one hundred times more… Multiply all this by ten for a VE8… Recently the frequencies of VE7s has been augmented. A so far unidentified VE7 or two, (or an impactor?) affected very adversely the reconquest activities of the Roman empire in the Sixth Century…
