Some Answers To Putin Collaborators

March 30, 2022

Putin parrots go around the Internet, repeating Putin’s mass murdering lies. Let’s dispell a few…

Who gave “assurances” for NATO not expanding eastward, to a state which stopped existing more than 30 years ago? NATO is a treaty among participating democracies, not a person giving “assurances”. Democracies are dynamic: they change opinons. NATO is not a fascist organization, with one chief at the top and robots executing below. Just the opposite. For several decades, France a  founding member of NATO slammed the door of the common military command… Until France went back to NATO, and cajoled it into joining France to intervene against the Serbian war crime, Muslim hating dictatorship.

NATO, a treaty among 30 democracies, a billion people, works by consensus: one country can block everything. As far as getting in wars, France, which often blocked NATO, for example about the Ukraine membership, has led (into war) much more than the USA (generally after getting OK from the UN).

***

That NATO gave “assurances” is a piece of criminal Putin propaganda, deforming completely a casual conversation about NATO and East Germany (DDR)… By claiming NATO lied, Putin tried to justify his “special military operation” (in truth a major crime against humanity). Finland and Sweden are preparing to join NATO, a defensive alliance… of democracies. Just for a an educated hint: “special” in SS, that is ZZ, linguo meant extermination… Now, outright Putin claims inside Russia that Ukraine was preparing to bomb Russia, so he had to act first. 

Here is an extract of an interview with the mother of a Russian soldier who died in Ukraine in Kyiv’s suburbs, given to Deutsche Welle. DW said they left it as is, because DW wanted to show the extent of Putin propaganda:

“Despite losing her son Yevgeny, Natalya (not her actual name) argues the invasion of Ukraine is justified. Yet she thinks Russia’s campaign amounts to a full-fledged war, rather than a “special operation.”

The mother of the 26 year old dead soldier says:

[Her son] Yevgeny was in Hostomel on February 24. He did not die on February 27, as his death certificate says. He was killed much earlier, probably on the night between February 24 and 25.

DW: What makes you think so?

I read online that our soldiers conquered Hostomel on February 24. All our boys were then sent there. But then they came under fire from Kyiv. Our boys were encircled and nobody came to their aid. They were shot at and bombed for a full day. Think about it, the airport is basically an open field.

 
On February 25, our soldiers regained control of Hostomel. On February 26, they found Yevgeny. But I was only informed on March 8. His unit called me around 1:30 p.m. and told me my son had died in a battle near Rostov [Rostov-on-Don, a city in southern Russia, some 60 kilometers from the Ukrainian border]. I almost lost my mind.

DW: Why did they say he died near Rostov-on-Don?

I do not know why they reported that. Maybe because his body was sent to a morgue in Rostov, and they had no verified information about his death.

DW: Did you ever discuss Ukraine with your son in the past?

To be honest, no. 

DW: Do you understand why this war was begun?

I think if we had not started bombing them, the Ukrainians would have bombed us. We had no choice. But something went wrong, nobody saw it coming. Now that so many soldiers have died, we cannot stop. We need to press on until we achieve victory.

DW: Do you understand why Russia is fighting in Ukraine? What was Yevgeny fighting for?

My son fought for us, for Russia and the Russians. So that we can keep using our phones, eat and drink like before. He did not die in vain, he died for us, so that we can lead long, happy lives, so that we don’t have to live through war and that bombs fall on us.

DW: In Russia, it is illegal to call this conflict a war. Do you regard this as a war or a “special operation”?

I do not see this as a “special operation.” This is a proper war. I am aware we are not supposed to call it that, but it is a war. It’s a bloodbath.”

Remarks: Putin wants Russian to believe Ukraine attacked Russia. This is why they claim they have soldiers dying in Rostoff, deep in Russia.

Evoking game theory for depicting Putin is too weak: Putin is way smarter than Game Theory specialists. Does Game Theory have people bombing giant building blocks to get elected? Does Game Theory flattens Grozny as a possibility? Use chemical weapons? Does game theory annex part of Georgia? (That’s the latest March 30, 2022) Does Game Theory include Horror Theory?  

Have you read the very detailed theory of nuclear escalation of the Russian army? I have. It’s not as simple as a massive nuclear exchange. It includes “escalate to deescalate“, a weird frown-down theory I use with wild, gullible predators… but I doubt it will work with NATO… which includes clever apes.

Do you know about the nuclear tipped hypersonic missiles in Kaliningrad? They have deployed by Putin, in complete violation of treaties on medium range ballistics for more than a decade. They reduce warning times over several European capitals to a few seconds. They are nearly impossible to intercept. They are why the US dropped the medium range ballistic treaty.

World War III already started: 141 countries, including ALL democracies agree Putin is a war criminal. 

On top of that, Putin, plutocrat in chief, loves to pose as the sword of justice, but Putin was empowered by WEF/Davos…   

This is exactly why so many of the NATO powers do not want Putin to lose: he is their man. Merkel made Europe dependent on Putin, because she obviously was a double agent (she slily said the KGB tried to recruit her, but she brushed them off by telling them she “couldn’t keep a secret”. Merkel, very officially, was employed by the same people Putin worked for. The Merkel betrayal extended to all of Europe, because the World Economic Forum pushed Putin as the provider of Europe’s energy… while knowing perfectly well he was a mafia and KGB thug. 

What is worse than a scum who threatened to annihilate all of humanity if we don’t do as he said? Are there excuses for the worst?

People justifying Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini or Pol Pot were once in the millions, including hundreds of thousands of intellectuals. This is now forgotten. 

Infamy tends to be forgotten… Perhaps, because, as Voltaire said, one must crush infamy. What has been crushed long ago is slimy, rotten and poisonous: history prefers to forget it.

The Russian army justified its strike of this maternity in Mariupol, by claiming that it was full of “SS”. It was a full lie. There were, by coincidence, AP journalist team inside at the time… Of course SS looks like ZZ rotated, an inside joke…

Anything Less Than Hating Putin Is Treason Against Civilization

March 30, 2022

Abstract: Hate, by itself is strong enough a motivation, in some human beings, to dominate any other consideration, or emotion. The roots of this psychobiology are millions years old This is why Hitler risked having a world war he couldn’t win: the world war enabled Hitler to feed his hatred. Putin is a similar individual, similarly motivated by hatred. His real aim, proximally, is not to win in the “Western” military sense, but to feed his hatred, and that means his hatred for the Ukrainian People, or all other “gnats” found inside Russia. Putin’s hate wants to eradicate the Ukrainian People. That some “Western” leaders do not understand this, although it’s happening in front of their eyes, is not just a civilizational problem, it’s a strategic problem.

***

During WW2, Churchill joked that he hated “nobody but Hitler… but that’s professional.” Well in retrospect the killing of 5% of humanity by Hitler (100 millions), directly, or through inciting allies, was well worth hating. Hate can be noble. At the last count, 17 millions civilians died in extermination camps, directly at the hands of the Nazis (including 6 million “Jews”). Many millions of other civilians died from other causes, and so did more than twenty million soldiers. Meanwhile in China, the other “master race” Hirohito’s devoted goons, killed another 40 million civilians or so. 

As Ukraine democratically elected president Zelinskyy said, “there are no words“… He had just been told by various “Western” authorities that sanctions would be increased if Putin used weapons of mass destruction in Ukraine… So basically the Ukrainian president was told to pray that Putin will use WMDs, and then Europeans would scratch a bit more sanctions in the direction of Putin (but no tanks, said a scared, uncivilized Macron, peeing in his pants, that would be going too far). As if the crimes against Humanity committed by Putin were not obvious enough, and as if Ukrainian cities had not been erased already…. Putin’s objective, long proclaimed, is to eradicate Ukraine… His apparently bungled military campaign achieves just that. Enlisting in the process the clueless “Western””leaders”, led by the nose by a crafty mass murdering monster.

Treason Against Civilization

So why did Hitler kill so many, including more than ten million ethnic Germans? Hate… Hate of Germans! Hate of self! Not just hate of Jews, Slavs, French, Russians, etc… Same with Putin!

When considering Hitler, and the holocaust he brought, pseudo-thinkers pontificate that one thing led to another, and there is somemerit to the idea. However, the Nazis themselves used that argument, somethig which should arose suspicion… The Nazis accused the French Republic to have caused World War Two, and thus the Holocaust, by intervening when Poland got attacked by Hitler…

This argument is superficially true, but neglects the fact that the Nazis had started mass executions in the name of humanity (the most ethnic way Nazis defined humanity!) before 1939. Also, the program of mass extermination of the Poles was formally (and secretly, of course) launched September 1, 1939, 56 hours or so before the French declaration of war (which took the top Nazi leadership by surprise, as it meant that France was simultaneously, by her own choice, at war with Germany, Italy, Japan, the USSR, Spain, etc…).

But let’s get deeper in human, all too human, psychology, and discard Nazi logic. What were Hitler’s motivations? Yes Hitler exposed official motivations for threatening a world war: Germany needed to liberate, save and be reunified with oppressed German minorities (Austria, Czechoslovakia, Dantzig, Prussia, etc.). Nuclear tyrant Putin uses the exact same ethnic argument: he needs to be reunified and to save Russian and Slavic minorities all over… All the way to Kosovo! Even the Poles have to be saved from being converted to Catholicism!

However, doing so by force risked war: the main achievement of the Versailles Treaty had been the liberation from the subjugation of German speaking overlords of many nations of Eastern Europe. France was behind it. France’s preoccupation with Eastern Europe came all the way from Charlemagne. Roman emperor Augustus had said in his testament to never try it again. Trajan begged to differ, conquering Dacia, now called Romania (but the emperor suffered an early natural death). The conquest of Eastern Europe by Charlemagne had been a security, economic, and even financial achievement which had eluded the Roman state… and made it so that Europe has been unconquered ever since. 

Starting towards the end of Charlemagne’s rule, and as a consequence of it, directly and not,  the Viking invaded all over. In particular, the Varingians, coming out of southern and easter Sweden, created a state east of the “March” states of the Carolingian empire: Kyivan Rus. The Normans also established themselves all over Western Europe’s sea front, from Normandy to Sicily. France then allied herself with Ukraine (Eleventh Century), the highly educated, polyglot Kyivan princess became queen and ruled over what she viewed as the French savages.

All of this to say that Hitler, by fostering ethnic supremacy over Eastern Europe, was going against some of the deepest principles of European construction… Hitler the hater risked his puny military against the mighty French army. Thus Hitler took the challenge seriously and trained his army in Spain, crushing the local democracy. However the odds were against Germany in such a huge way that his own generals (some of them authentic Nazis!) plotted to “remove” (talking like Biden) in 1937… Indeed France was not alone, but fully united with her ex-vassal and creation, the United Kingdom… And then there was the looming question of that other French creation, the USA… An obvious potential rescuer of its own parents, France and Britain… 

Hitler’s generals may have been Nazi, but they didn’t feel suicidal, nor were they particularly interested in destroying Germany. That’s why they plotted in 1937 to get rid of the Nazis.

By not been conquered by the unifying Roman state, the German people were left to the tender mercies of tribalism,and obscurantism, making them more susceptible to the leadership of Luther and Hitler. Martin Luther and Adolf Hitler are inseparably linked with their extreme anti-Judaism, racism, and strident nationalism. It is impossible to assume that Luther did not have an enormous influence on Hitler, directly or not. Anti-Judaism was cultivated during the creation of Germany under Bismarck: unification through common hate.

But once again, the question remains: why the madness of engaging in a war Germany was most probably going to lose? First, because it was already tried in 1914. The  world war planned in 1912 by the Prussian high command, was launched in 1914, after a sort of US encouragement (riding the Sarajevo incident and its consequences as a pretext and coverup). For Germany to win that world war, the Prussian High Command decided to follow a strict schedule: first defeat France, then defeat Russia, and finally Britain. That rested on the military mobilizations: France had a large and ferocious army, readily mobilized. Russia had a gigantic army, but obsolete and extremely slow to mobilize (a month, not days). “Britain had no army” (as Lord Kichener, UK defense secretary, put it): it would take many months for the UK to draft an army.

So the German world war plan of 1914 was foolhardy. Hitler’s plan was even more foolhardy: it assumed that France and Britain would calmly wait until 1945, when Hitler was ready to wage a world war… Because in 1914, France and Britain were clearly not getting ready for war, by being extremely unwilling to wage war, calculating then that Germany would not miscalculate. Instead, Germany calculated carefully that the impreparation of Britain, France and Russia made a surprise world war win possible.   

Hitler, self-persuading that democracies were cowardly, unwilling and degenerate, thought that, like the German generals of 1914, it would be in his power to choose the day world war will start. Instead, France and Britain declared war to him on September 3, 1939, six years before the Nazis planned to be ready to fight them.

Putin made a roughly similar calculation, after the debacle of Afghanistan, the insistence of Biden and his partisans that Trump was too rough, and the pushing back of weapons deliveries to Ukraine in 2021, to not irritate the ruler of the Kremlin.

So Hitler took the risk. However, a cursory look at the numbers would have shown him that the military might of France and Britain left no chance whatsoever to Germany (the defeat of France in may-June 1940 was caused by the confluence of several extraordinary events, including, but not limited to betrayals of various sorts). 

Moreover, France and Britain were backed up by gigantic empires powerful economically and militarily (Senegalese troops in 1918 were extremely feared and hated by the Germans)… Let alone their rambunctious child on the other side of the Atlantic.

But Hitler hated. Yes, he hated the Jews. But he also hated the Slavs, the French, the Germans, and himself. After Pearl Harbor, in a fit of hatred supreme, Hitler declared war on the world economic superpower, the USA (right, he had something to be angry about: the US military industrial complex had been feeding the UK and the USSR).  

Salvador Dali said Hitler launched world war two, just to lose it. This is not exactly what happened, but close. Hitler didn’t mind to go down in defeat as much as being able to express his hatred

For years, Hitler, like Putin, was driven by hate. The origins of these two buffoons is somewhat similar: somewhat difficult events in their childhoods and early adulthoods. Hitler was destitute, rejected, WW1 saved him, but also the French nearly killed him. Putin was put back in a more modest place by the KGB twice at least, and presided over the debacle of the fall of the Iron Curtain in his KGB office… Burning papers frantically… Putin was very clear that the fall of the USSR was worse than any Holocaust or World War… Putin’s hate is as clear as Hitler’s anger. Hate is, of course, worse than anger…

Underestimating hate is the shortcoming of traditional humanism. The silly ones come around and ask: what is hate good for? Well, hate fosters the continuation of the species, by periodically culling it, so that the ecology the human species needs can survive. That makes hate a crucial safety mechanism of humanity.

But of course now we can turn around hate, by diminishing the ecological load with more advanced techs, for example by augmenting considerably the area at our disposal, with the colonization of Mars, the Moon, Vesta, etc…

Hate has become obsolete… But Russia is owned by a hater, and haters such as him and Xi prevent the advancement of tech… except of course, when democracies make new weapons to defeat them… By preventing the advancement of tech, hateful tyrants create the very ecology which makes them prosper…

Why Putin Will Use Weapons Of Mass Destruction

March 25, 2022

Putin Does As Evil Wants

War writes history. Always had, always will. The war in Ukraine is the largest sort of war, a world war: 141 countries, and all democracies, voted against Russia accusing it of war of aggression, the fundamental crime against humanity ( a legal, philosophical, and UN conviction). The two largest wheat producers are at war, famine has a high probability to follow in many parts of the world, which eat mostly cereals, and produce none or too little [1].

The perpetrator, an oligarchy, is controlling the Kremlin by reinstalling the mentality of its mentor, Ivan The Terrible (no, I am not trying to be funny, Ivan IV is really the hero and role model of Putin’s more cerebral advisers)… This perpetrator has a powerful ally, Xi, the dictator of China. All other autocrats, worldwide are tempted to ally themselves with the Kremlin.

This is a war of democracy against fascism, similar to that of the Greek cities fighting the Persian empire, 25 centuries ago. The Achemenid Persians had established an immense empire, resting on fascism and local oligarchies, from Central Asia to Ethiopia, and the Mediterranean to India.  Greek cities were free and more intelligent: the Persians couldn’t stand their insolence… and the fact that the superiority of their innovations and ideas contradicted the Persian civilizational model. 

The Russian oligarchy has embraced a bellicose ethnic ideology to instigate wars and militarization to distract from its capture of the country, and justify the terror it exerts inside.

The alliance of all democracies is the most powerful, but fascism has nuclear weapons, plenty of them, and the advertised will to use them. Several US presidents ago, the Kremlin dictator developed nuclear armed hypersonic weapons, detectable only at the last moment, making intermediate ballistic missiles obsolete.

Worse: the war against Ukraine was engaged for ethnic reasons, the displayed conviction of a small oligarchy that another ethnicity, a democracy with its own language, does not have a right to exist, and thus should be under the control of said oligarchy. It is rare that the advertized goal of a war is the extermination of an ethnicity.

All Russians are supposed to approve the notion: otherwise they are “scums and traitors”, to be spit out like a gant which comes accidentally into one’s mouth” as Putin himself put it.

So, to justify its war, the oligarchy built an argument which is essentially racist: another ethnicity doesn’t deserve to exist. Whether that’s true or not is irrelevant to the main effect: it makes racism into a virtue, and impells everybody in Russia to partake into evil, thus an accomplice of the evil oligarchy, an evil-power, a plutocracy.

Of course, the plutocracy is in it to gorge itself on riches and power, it’s evil, and thus to become part of the landscape, needs the entire landscape to be evil too.

These sorts of situations have happened before: history is full of hundreds of plutocracies, from all continents and islands. Still now is different, because of the powers vested into just one man. The greatest emperors had armies, bodyguards, secret services… But a modern emperor such as Putin has powers no emperor had before. Some of these powers are cognitive powers. Putin persuaded most of the Russian population, and much of the world, that he was fighting Nazis in Ukraine.

The situation is also without precedent: the Russian government has expressed the opinion that, should it lose a war, it would reduce the rest of the world to “radioactive ashes“. Putin threatened those who interfere with his war of aggression on tribal “with seen never seen in history“.

This astoundingly evil attitude, never seen before in history, indeed, with such a level of demonicity, has predictive value: it makes it likely that weapons of mass destruction will be used.

Putin’s entire vision of civilization, something embodied by the KGB, a direct descendant of Ivan The Terrible’s secret police, is unraveling in Ukraine… Lest, by sheer will, he can call the greatest evil, “never seen before in history”, to the rescue.

Our best hope is a coup in Moscow, and soon. Let’s hope many Russian generals are thinking the same.

If that does not work, and in the meantime, democracies have to stand so firm, resolute and unafraid, that they will leave no hope that the “escalate to des-escalate” doctrine of the Russian military relative to WMDs could work.

Not Sending Planes To Ukraine = Escalation By Promotion Of Nuclear Blackmail

March 23, 2022

Once the defenseless capital city of Bosnia, Sarajevo, was submitted to relentless bombing of its civilian population. French army peacekeepers finally got authorized to use counterbattery fire (tracking shells on the radar, and immediately firing at the point where they came from, before the guns could move significantly, thus destroying the aggressor). This is how the war against the war criminals and criminals against humanity in the ex-Yugoslavia started. That was the right thing to do. Now their three top war criminals from the ex-Yugoslavia  have been condemned to life in prison (and the dictator Milosevic died there).

Guess what? None of the Western allies of Ukraine had the cojones yet to equip, or a fortiori operate, counterbatteries in Ukraine, although civilian populations are massacred in war crimes, and although we now have radio messages and videos showing the preparation and execution of war crimes using Russian artillery and planes

The excuse for this ineptitude and cowardice is always the same: the wise and prudent would not want to upset Vlad the Mad, he may destroy the world, he already said he would. Ukraine has its own counterbattery equipment, but the western one is superior, for example the CAESAR French guns which are truck mounted. They and the M982 Excalibur from the US have a circular error probable (CEP) of 4 m. The shells can go more than 30 miles (50 kms).

Yet, everybody should upset Vlad the Mad, starting with Russian general officers… Or do we want to believe Vlad the Mad and decide that we are Nazis? The best solution to the present situation is a military coup against the Putin kleptocratic regime. But how can we ask Russian officers to rebel when we cannot even dare to act, lest it could possibly upset the madman?

In Korea or Vietnam Russian pilots fought US pilots. After World War II, there were many instances of air-to-air combat between the Soviet Union and the United States. In the Korean War, the Soviets claimed to have shot down more than 1,100 US planes (US recognizes only 146…) In Vietnam, Soviet instruct pilots were credied with shooting down 48 US planes. Ace pilot from the USSR, Col. Vadim Shcherbakov was credited with 6 air-to-air kills of US planes.

Ukraine needs more fighter planes. Democracy needs Ukraine to have more planes. Influential leaders pontificate instead that we cannot do that because we do not want to aggravate the aggressor, who is bad, very very bad, even radioactive, and thus should be kept in reasonable agreement… An attitude so despicable, and idiotic, that one should guess that’s it’s not the real reason.

We have seen that movie before, of not helping enough democracies attacked by invading fascists. The basic actors were the same: western plutocrats empowered dictators who then bit the hands who fed them.

Democracies did not help two democracies in a timely manner, Spain and Czechoslovakia, in 1936 and 1938. Instead, democracies let Spain and Czechoslovakia, fighting alone for their lives, confronted to a coalition of fascist countries.  

In Munich, in 1938, the democracies, France and Britain, let Hitler seize a piece of a democracy, Czechoslovakia. The equivalent happened in 2014, when Obama and Biden let Russia seize 7% of Ukraine, without fighting back.

The problem with Munich was not that some appeasement was found with Hitler. The problem with Munich 1938 is that the democracy, Czechoslovakia was left alone to struggle diplomatically with Hitler, enabling the latter to seize the entire country in 1939. That invasion made Hitler much stronger militarily and diplomatically. It also impressed the USSR and contributed to making its alliance with Hitler official and very efficient: Hitler invaded Western Europe, including France, the Netherlands and Norway,  on Soviet oil.

If Putin wins in Ukraine, Xi will be even more in love with Putin and his ways than he is already. Conversely, if Putin is decisively thrown out of Ukraine, Xi, who is compromise with Putin, may well not be re-elected by his colleagues, and China may become much more prudent diplomatically for a very long time to come… 

By not helping a democracy which fights for its survival, just because a tyranny makes a nuclear blackmail, we invite disaster, because we show that nuclear blackmail works, and we lose an ally, making the blackmailer stronger.

If only democracies had fought Hitler early! 

The more we delay confronting Putin, the nuclear blackmailer, the more he will find allies, as Hitler did… Putin will then ally himself to China. The worse the world war will get.  Indeed, the more Putin pursues his war criminality, the more individuals and countries will join him in criminality… as happened with Nazism. 

Russian criminal plane shot down over Kyiv by Ukrainian pilot, February 2022.

As Madeleine Albright, dead today of cancer at 84, said to the chief of the US army, Colin Powell: “What is the use of this great army if we can’t use it?

Ah, yes, scared rabbits can’t lead.

Come on, Man, Man up, Man!“…as Biden should say…

EMOTIONAL IMPRINTING: Lies Fade Away, Emotions Stay

March 22, 2022

THAT’S HOW MODERN PROPAGANDA WORKS…

Why do so many believe the nuclear blackmailer, the tyrant Putin?

For the same reason as so many believe so many stupidities, all over.  

For the It is logic by innuendo, facts by fiction.

Truth has become a battlefield and civilization is not winning… because, ultimately, and basically, people reason emotionally. Ideas and facts, ultimately, are best remembered from the emotions they primarily suggest, and emotions are laid down by the so-called logic and alleged facts which get to the brain… chronologically first (this is well known, it’s called imprinting and was first studied rigorously by Konrad Lorenz who got the Nobel in medicine for it).

If the logic and facts turn out, in the fullness of time, have nothing to do with reality, it does not matter: the fake reality moves on, the false feelings, moods and emotions they induced stay behind.

This is not just brainwashing, it’s brain imprinting. Emotional imprinting. The key is not to present logic and facts emotionally contradicting fake logic and false facts. That’s why, in modern propaganda, the torrent of lies keeps on moving fast to ever more fantastic assertions, giving no time for careful considerations.

For example the assertion that all and any biolab can be weaponized is correct, and was made about biolabs in Ukraine… with the emotional inuendo that this was a huge emotional problem because of the implied laie that the US developed bio weapons in Ukraine… However, that a biolab, any biolab, can be weaponized does not mean it is a weapon (the same program from the US Department of defense which helped decommision Soviet biolabs in Ukraine operated in Russia…)

Any chemical plant, or dam can also be weaponized. But it’s not because it can be weaponized that it is a weapon. A truck can be weaponized, but it’s not a weapon.

Propagandists will leave half of the logic out, look really indignant, imprint the emotions of fear and outrage, and move on, before those lies can be dissected, leaving those negative emotions behind, as intended.

In the end, in the case of Putin, this pure product of the plutocratic system, just like Hitler, can present himself as its dedicated enemy, just as Hitler did before him… we have actually Hitler’s conversation with some of his subordinates where he reveals his disgust at having to play nice with foreign “plutocrats“, Hitler uses that exact word… because they made his Hitlerian adventure possible… In the case of Putin, it’s just as obvious, if not more, and yet, most of Putin admirers feel that this pure product of the World Economic Forum and Davos is its… dedicated enemy… because Putin was highly successful in imprinting that emotion.

So logic imprints emotions, and emotions are what’s left when one has forgotten the logic….

At fortiori if said logic is fake… Because what’s fake is harder to remember. Thus the very fact logic is fake facilitates imprinting by perversity…

Kyiv Under Bombing, March 2022. All the clouds one sees are actually smoke from Putin bombing. Thanks to enough Russians believing the lies of their tyrant whom they love dearly!

KREMLIN NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL: GO TO HELL (where you belong!)

March 21, 2022

If a lunatic threatens to blow up the planet, is it wise to do what he wants, and what he expects? Some think so, and they pontificate. What is certain: the genocidal war launched by Putin will wreck Ukraine and Russia. The Kremlin tyrant will be victorious only because of his usage of nuclear blackmail which makes cowards tremble

Indeed Ukraine is resisting as much as it can, only weapons of mass destruction can overwhelm it. Ukraine’s spineless allies, afraid of Russia’s army, which is bogged down in Ukraine, are not giving Ukraine weapons equivalent to those of the genocidal invader… Only because they are afraid of Putin’s gesticulations with nuclear weapons. 

The Russians have used nuclear blackmail before: during the Suez Canal crisis, Krutschev, the Soviet dictator, threatened to atom bomb London and Paris. In that particular crisis, the USSR was allied with the USA (So-called “decolonization”!). US foreign policy and the CIA were led by the Dulles brothers, who made their fortune as corporate lawyers for the Nazis before WW2 (and then went on to lead a pseudo-“denazification” from Berlin, and the CIA from Washington). 

The reason why these two, USSR and USA were allied, was a pursuit of a policy going all the way back to Lenin, an alliance between the most powerful US plutocrats and the Bolshevik gang, developing in common the Baku oil fields, and industrializing the USSR. 

***

During the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, the Russian ambassador threatened France with nuclear annihilation, if France sided with the USA. To which French president De Gaulle, a general who led an armored division against seven Nazi armored divisions in WW2, replied gaily: “Et bien, dans ce cas, nous mourrons ensemble. Au revoir,  monsieur l’ambassadeur,”[1].

In this case, we will die together, bye.  

This is the only answer Putin deserves: in this case, tyrant, we will die together.

Kremlin potentates cannot be empowered by taking seriously their demented discourses and outrageous demands. Kremlin potentates invaded a major democracy, democratic leaders should not obey the orders the invaders give, to enable tthem to go around and destroy the country they invaded.

Kremlin potentates are doing now exactly what the Nazis did in Ukraine, 81 years ago: besiege and cut the food, water and power of the cities to starve populations into submission; floowed by massive shelling. 

The Kremlin potentates and their servants are the Nazis in Ukraine, as Zelenskyy, the Ukrainian president pointed out, because they behave like Nazis. In WW2 Zelinskyy’s Jewish family fought Nazism, and was nearly entirely killed [2].

It is crucial that, in this Third World War, the US is on the side of democracy, from the start, in complete contrast with WW1 and WW2, where US help to its parents, UK and France, happened years too late (and deliberately so). 

***

Some congratulate themselves already about winning the present war. But, in the end, the problem with Munich was not just that Hitler was appeased, thus encouraged; Hitler in the end conquered Czechoslovakia: that was the problem. 

Consider France. France was on the side of democracy in 1936 (while Britain and the US collaborated with Hitler, Mussolini, and Franco)… But France did not do enough (it was hard for the Jewish French Prime Minister, Léon Blum, a Socialist, to contradict the mildly pro-Nazi Anglo-Saxon plutocrats in power in London and Washington; Blum preferred to give priority to his socialist agenda of paid vacations, etc.).

Nuclear blackmail, if successful, will be repeated, because Putin plutocracy will have to satisfy its military enablers (who would have suffered, while being empowered)… and Putin’s realm will be wrecked. 

So ultimately, NATO will have to surrender to Putin plutocracy, or then finally fight… After Putin plutocracy gets much more powerful than it is today, with Xi’s China by its side, under the umbrella of 6,257 Russian nukes. 

***

So, in recapitulation, living under Putin nuclear blackmail is impossible. Russia has around 1,600 warheads deployed, ready for us. Let’s hope NATO has every single one of them targeted. 

In the Cuban crisis, De Gaulle thought, correctly enough, that “there will be no war”. This time, the situation is grave: we already have a war, and it’s starting with a tyrant obsessed by “genocide” and “cleansing”… Both concepts of genocide and cleansing have been used repeatedly, obsessively by nuclear tyrant Putin. He is trying to inure us, including himself and his own captive audience, to their use.

It is also a world war: 141 countries voted at the United Nations against Russia. The resolution, which needed 90 votes to pass, demands that Russia “immediately, completely and unconditionally withdraw all of its military forces from the territory of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.

Submission to genocide and cleansing is not sustainable, thus not moral. And so spoke wisdom. Tough, but there is no alternative. Wisdom under tyrants such as Putin is not possible. 

It is high time to lock up the sky above Ukraine (and thus ramp up the production of anti-ballistic missile missiles…) It can be done without pilot involvement initially. 

If we prefer to die quietly on our knees, than to resist infamy while standing, civilization will not survive nihilistic brutes drawn by power and the evil seduction of total destruction, because those monsters coallesce and know nothing else.

Yet, civilization is worth saving. In the present state of technology, only civilization enables us to live.

French scientists discovered and fabricated radioactive isotopes (Nobel 1935), and then the U 235 nuclear reaction. De Gaulle knew about the atom bomb, “une bombe, une ville”, a full year before US president Truman became aware of nuclear bombs. The French were shunted out of the main Manhattan effort for cause of the French nuclear patents and the usual anti-French racism.

[2] In January 2020, during the commemoration in Israel of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, Zelenskyy told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu two stories of some of his country’s bravest heroes during the war: a Crimean Muslim woman and a Catholic priest who each saved scores of Jewish children. (My own family saved more than 100 Jews…)

Then, Zelinskyy said, he had one more story “about a family of four brothers.

Three of them, their parents and their families became victims of the Holocaust. All of them were shot by German occupiers who invaded Ukraine,” he said. “The fourth brother survived. … Two years after the war, he had a son, and in 31 years, he had a grandson. In 40 more years, that grandson became president, and he is standing before you today, Mr. Prime Minister.

A grandmother escaped in an evacuation of Jews to Kazakhstan, Zelinskyy said. She returned to the large city of Kryvyi Rih in southern Ukraine after the war and became a teacher. Zelensky said he grew up in an “ordinary Soviet Jewish family,” , not very religious, since “religion didn’t exist in the Soviet state as such.”

The U.S. Holocaust Memorial and Museum condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, saying Putin had “misrepresented and misappropriated Holocaust history.” More than one million Jewish Ukrainians were killed by the Nazis during WW2, most of them simply because they belonged to a category the Nazis had invented and hated.
Sedan test, Nevada, 1962: 104 kilotons TNT at 194 meters depth. 11 million metric tons of sediments thrown up in the air. Minimum nuclear warheads in NATO arsenal are of this power. A French nuclear sub carries 16 missiles with ten warheads each and a precision of 100 meters. Ohio class US subs carry 24 missiles with 12 warheads each (so 264)… and there are 18 of these subs… The US warheads are a minimum of 100KT but can be up to 475 KT…

Putin’s Genocide As His Preferred Strategy

March 20, 2022

To the untrained Western mind, Putin’s invasion of Ukraine looks incompetent and idiotic, an undeniable failure. But may be Putin has found a pretext to do what he really wants to do, genocide.

True, Putin’s Blitzkrieg did not work. Ukrainian forces defeated the initial Russian campaign of this war. Putin assumed he could take major airports around Kyiv, and land large forces there. However, the Ukrainians retook the airports and shot down several large transport planes. As armored thrusts were launched deep into Ukraine, they met fierce resistance, while they got cut from behind.  The Russian campaign conducted airborne and mechanized operations to seize Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, and other major Ukrainian cities to force a change of government in Ukraine. None of them worked.

Was Putin disappointed? Not necessarily. He may have secretly rejoiced. Putin insisted several times to French president Macron that his invasion of Ukraine, in appearance a failure, was going according to plan. Clearly, Putin was not talking about his plan A, the easy grabbing of Kyiv and installation of a collaborating government. Plan A assumed that Putin’s official lies about Ukraine were true. But of course Putin knew his lies were lies, so he had to be ready for the truth, and have a plan B. 

Putin knows his Blitzkrieg has failed,  but he doesn’t care, because actually, he fell back on a bigger, and, the way he looks at it, even better strategy, plan B.

Putin wants to look like an unpredictable, thoroughly blundering mass murdering war criminal, and his apparent incompetence enables him to do so, because apparent incompetence excuses him, and presents his planned genocide as a big accident. Putin’s bigger goal is to terrify the world into submission, and inure it to further invasion. It is better that it looks as if he stumbled into genocide, rather than to reveal it was his plan all along.  

Surely, some will say, Putin can’t achieve victory now? Well, one could only say this, only if one has not read the nuclear war manual of the Russian army, in conjunction with not properly interpreting the appeasing mood of several major western leaders. 

What counts the most for Putin, as it did for Hitler, or the other most bloodthirsty tyrants, is victory. Victory, for such monsters means destruction of the enemy, whom Putin calls “Nazis”. And the more deaths to get there, the greater the tyrant’s glory and wisdom (the way Putin, and other bloodthirsty tyrants look at it). Putin’s aim is to empty Ukraine.

By going slow and rubbling Ukrainian cities, Putin achieves this. When his supposed opponents claim that he is failing, they provide him, Putin, with a coverup and the time, for his genocide. So one can view the chorus of no-no-fly over Ukraine as much pro-Putin as Putin’s presence in Davos and at the World Economic Forum, for two decades, up to last year, 2021

That same method was used by Putin in Syria, kicking out more than 50% of the population. In Ukraine, Putin already got 10% of the population to flee, mostly young families who have never known the USSR, and who view Russia as a foreign, dictatorial power.

***

The Russian escalation strategy anticipates using nukes to apply “fear-induced deterrence”. Meanwhile those weal and simplistic, not to say corrupt, Western leaders have claimed they will do anything to avoid world war three. 

Attacking a nuclear power plant is considered just the last step before a nuclear strike, in the Russian escalation doctrine. And Putin’s force attacked two nuclear power plants with shells and rockets for hours, before seizing control. Using hypersonic missiles of several types is also an indication: the same ones can carry nukes. Russia announced the use of its new Kinzhal hypersonic missile to strike an ammunition depot in Ivano-Frankivsk on March 18.[7] Using such an expensive, rare, and high-end system to hit an ammunition depot was likely signaling and demonstrating intent and capability to escalate rather than seeking to achieve a concrete military objective. The Kinzhal is a dual-use missile that can carry a nuclear payload, and its main interest is that the West can’t intercept it, so it could strike pre-emptively nuclear installations of the US, UK and France. Its use likely signaled Moscow’s willingness to strike with low-yield nuclear weapons in addition to demonstrating the capability to use (non-interceptable) hypersonic weapons.

The theater was clearly isolated from other buildings but was bombed with high precision. There may have been 1,500 civilians inside at the time. 130 came out before further shooting prevented rescue. The pilot(s) who annihilated the theater are war criminals: “KIDS” was written clearly, and was visible by satellites. Reports are that 20,000 civilians have already been killed in Mariupol, where more than half a million Russian speaking civilians were surrounded by Putin’s thugs. On top of that, 7,000 civilians from Mariupol were viewed as potential opponents, and deported to Russia. Mariupol is Russian speaking.

As it is, some in the West seem determined to make a show of avoiding “World War Three”. This desperate denial of reality empowers Putin, because Putin can keep on pushing, by exposing his opponents as willing to cause “World War Three”, and thus Putin gets what he wants, namely killing all those who resist him, who, by his definition, are all “Nazis”… Putin is happy as it is, turning major Ukrainian cities into extermination camps.

Putin can slowly escalate, while killing and chasing off a maximum of Ukrainians, “spitting them out like flies which flew accidentally in one one’s mouth” as Putin depicted his own opponents inside Russia in a speech vowing to “cleanse… scums and traitors”… [1]

In the end, when Putin uses weapons of even bigger mass destruction, will leaders in the West still desperately try to avoid “world war three”? The war that is already here? 

Hundreds of Putin oligarchs spent more than two decades corrupting the West… And nobody is seizing their properties, while the West is sending Putin 700 million dollars a day, so that his factories of evil can build flat out thousands of missiles. Up to last year, 2021, and for more than two decades, Vladimir Putin, dictator of Russia and certified mass murderer, was a most honored lead participant of the World Economic Forum, and “Davos”. 

Deliberate Russian targeting of civilian infrastructure and attacks on unarmed civilians are war crimes. Hundreds of these crimes are already documented, besides war of invasion by choice, the “ultimate war crime”.

Those who appease mass murderers, criminals against humanity, those collaborators of infamy, have not been generally viewed by history in a better light than those they empowered. And the question is: have they been compromised?

P/S: NYT censored the essence of this comment, specifically that genocide and emptying Ukraine of his opponents was Putin’s plan. In the opinion of the NYT, to dare say that Putin has a genocidal plan in Ukraine, and that it is implemented is provocative, and outlandish. In 1940, to publish that the Nazis had a similar plan was viewed as unwise at the NYT, which kept as secret as it could the various genocides the Nazis conducted (Poles, Jews, Handicapped, Gypsies, “Communists”, etc.) This enabled the Nazis to implement such genocides (US intervention at the side of France in 1939, or early 1940 would have killed World War Two and its genocides, in the egg). It is hard to believe the refined analysis of the official thought which is only allowed to go through by official media. Maybe I should start with a few insults against Trump if I want to be published by the NYT?

[1] “Any people, and particularly the Russian people, will always be able to tell apart the patriots from the scum and traitors and spit them out like a fly that accidentally flew into their mouths,” Putin said during a televised address on Wednesday. “I am convinced that this natural and necessary self-cleansing of society will only strengthen our country, our solidarity, cohesion, and readiness to meet any challenge.”Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov added that people “are disappearing from our lives by themselves…” 

Tyrant Putin’s Safety Mechanisms: Chemicals, Mass Destruction, Nukes

March 17, 2022

Putin engaged in this war because he was sure to win… not only was his colossal army of 3,000 tanks, and thousands of other armored gun equipped vehicles, irresistible, but, should it falter on the ground, Putin would still win, thanks to weapons of mass destruction he has in reserve (some of which, for example neurotoxic gas Sarin, and vaccuum bombs, have been used in Syria).

Unfortunately for democracy, nuclear tyrant Putin has many “tactical”nukes, hundreds of them at the ready, and the West has very few, if any. The West unilaterally disarmed, in a sort of John Lennon peacenik strategy of turning the other cheek… as if Auschwitz had not amply demonstrated the immorality of accepting slaps all day long from lying blood thirsty brutes, and as if Lennon’s thoracic cage had not been pierced by 4 bullets [1].

So if Putin goes nuclear, he wins. At least that’s obviously how Putin looks at it: Putin could use nukes several times, hoping to scare the entire planet into submission, exerting “deterrence through fear inducement (we use Russian nuke theory semantics)… And the West will, or at least, so does Putin believes, just evoke further “red lines”, and shrink into obedience… while Ukraine is forced to surrender. Russian strategy anticipates to wage nuclear war, starting on the battlefield, and progressively “escalating to de-escalate” (Russian code words for the other side surrendering).

Short of this, Russia has other weapons of mass destruction, biological, or chemicals. So-called “thermobaric” or “vacuum bombs”, fuel-air explosives as powerful as the smallest nukes have already been used (Russian startegy considers the largest fuel-air explosives equivalent to small nukes).

At least, once again, that’s how Putin is looking at it: he has plenty of weapons of mass destruction at the ready. And that’s what the West should be ready for Putin to use a whole ladder full of rungs of mass destruction to escalate along, and thus to elevate himself, as a force and will, and that evil he identifies with goodness.

The West is not ready for this, either in its war theory, its weapons, or its expectations. The easiest way to suppress this danger would be to explain to Russian armed forces that the highest moral cause, at this point, is to dispose of Putin in a timely manner.

Hence the importance of brandishing Putin for what he is, a war criminal. Many plots against Hitler by German soldiers failed because nobody had told them it was morally correct to dispose of war criminal leadership… so they often felt morally wrong to dispose of their chief(s) [2].

Russian officers following or a fortiori, generating, criminal orders could very well find themselves jailed for life, after regime change. This is what happened in Serbia, although, like Russia or the US, Serbia was not engaged to obey the justice institutions of the United Nations (ICJ and ICC). The International Court of Justice just ordered Russia to get out of Ukraine, so the invasion of Ukraine is now officially recognized by the UN as a war crime.

The ex-Serbian dictator died in UN jail, and the top two commanders of the Bosnian Serbs are in jail for life.

To come back to the original quandary, what to do? The Biden administration is warning Russia and the world against a possible US chemical attack. That’s good. But I sure hope they prepare a response in case of the usage of nukes…

Because showing weakness, as the Biden administration repeatedly did, entice Putin to believe that a nuke would solve all his problems… and that has actually been suggested on Russia Putin TV (there is no other!)

World War Three has started, but democracy and world order can still win it, fast and on the cheap, as long as we act decisively now. Terrifying Chinese dictator Xi is part of the proper course of action… Hey, Xi may even not be re-elected by his comrades if it becomes clear that he allied himself with a lunatic loser deprived of strategic sense

[1] the West used to have plenty of tactical nukes, either US or French… but unilaterally disarmed, eliminating short range tactical nuclear weapons, for example the French “Pluton” meant to break a Soviet armored assault through Germany.

***

[2] This was true all the way to the Field Marshall level. In 1943, Von Kluge, who commanded the central German front against Russia, learned of a plot against Hitler, who was visiting… Ukraine. Instead of arresting the plotters, Von Kluge advised them, pointing out Hitler was beeter protected than they anticipated! (Two attempts were made, the second one a bomb in Hitler’s plane which unfortunately froze… The general who had put it there flew as fast as possible to Berlin to remove the unexploded bomb before it could be found…) Now, if Hitler had been declared a war criminal, and a genocidal tyrant, and denounced to be so by respected international institutions, Von Kluge would have felt morally justified to order one of the many divisions under his command to just move in arrest Hitler… and Hitler and his bodyguards could have done nothing about it.

P/S: The essece of the comment above was censored at the New York Times by Helene CooperJulian E. Barnes and Eric Schmitt. This sort of opinion steering is not fundamentally different from what any dictatorship does.

The bloodied corpse on the bottom right is that of a 16 year old girl whose legs were blown off during soccer practice. To all this, the criminals occupying the Kremlin reply that the Ukrainains are doing it to themselves, or that these are sophisitcated montages by NATO, some of them involving professional actors…. A method Russian criminals know very well, as they have used it a lot…

PUTIN WAR CRIMINAL FACTORY (short version)

March 15, 2022

In the antique and medieval past, commanders would sack some cities, and sometimes utterly destroy others. However war criminal Putin has invented a new way of war, “rubbling”. Yes, even medieval warriors did not have it, because it was so useless, and inhuman. Yes Putin’s way necessitated a new verb! 

The deepest reason why Putin does this is not really new: Hitler invented it. War criminality is psychological control, through other means.

Rubbling turns cities into rubble, small piece of hard material pulverized by bombs. Putin rubbled Chechnya, Grozny, and much of Syria. Rubbling achieves three objectives: terrorizing the population, forcing it to flee, and hiding genocide. Indeed Putin and his colleagues claim that civilians who didn’t flee massive bombardment are obviously “enemy combatants”, so Putin feels legally entitled to kill all those “enemy combatants”. The end result is massive depopulation. That’s how Syria found itself with 14 million refugees, and how the large and ancient city of Aleppo was “rubbled”… with the benediction of US president Obama (the one whose main mission was to pose as in the White House while brown). 

Putin’s “rubbling” strategy is fundamentally criminal. The laws of war are not to strike civilian targets deliberately and exclusively. According to the World Health Organization, Putin forces struck more than 36 hospitals in Ukraine in the first three weeks of the conflict. The lame excuse, which was demonstrated to be a lie on the ground, was that the Ukrainian army is based in hospitals.

Putin forces search for and strike schools and food distribution and production centers. Striking food production is how the Nazis started their genocide in Poland, September 1, 1939. The Nazis in particular struck flour mills deliberately, to starve the Polish population to death. 

By bombing purely civilian objectives, Putin’s soldiers terrorize the civilian population by design

Terror is useful, indeed, but not just for terror’s sake. There is a deeper objective  pursued: transforming Putin’s army into an army of devils… and transforming Russia in an empire of self-conscious evil.

A Mongol army besieged and destroyed Kyiv in 9 days, starting November 28, 1240. 96% of the population was massacred… although the wounded commander was spared by the Mongols for his bravery. The Mongol army was an army of devils, probably animated by racial hatred for the rather blonde, white and tall Vikings of Rus. 

The problem that  homicidal dictators such as Hitler, Putin and Xi have, is that they rule over populations who have heard of racial hatred, human rights and genocides. Asking a Roman, Frankish or Mongol army to massacre an entire city was not difficult. 

However, for Putin to incite his army to massacre Ukraine is more difficult.

So the first thing Putin did was to persuade his own population that Russophones were the object of a genocide in Ukraine. However as Russian soldiers push through large Russian speaking cities such as Kharkiv, Mariupol, Mykolaiv, Zaporizhia, Chernihiv, Sumy, they discover everybody hates them and they are taking part in a war of aggression, a war crime.

Hitler had the same problem: the progressive realization through the population of the Great Thousand Year Reich that accusing the Jews to have launched a world war couldn’t hide the fact Germany had become a huge war criminal enterprise. So how come the Germans kept on working hard for the demented dictator? Because, precisely, Hitler had made it so that millions of Germans engaged in war crimes. 

Modern dictators have weaponized the notion of war criminality. War crimes are committed not just to terrorize, but to initiate their perpetrators to criminal behavior. They are not just rites of passage, they are not just neurohormonal transformations, they are how to buy loyalty by becoming partners in crime. 

SS officers in training pierced the eyes of live kittens. That could be viewed as toughening them up, but the ultimate toughening was the moral Rubicon of committing war crimes. Once a crime has been committed, the deep human instinct of evil in action has been activated:

 the perpetrator has passed the tipping point into neurohormonal hell and its delights.

But not only that: those who have engaged in war crimes can be blackmailed by possible revelation, should their side falter so have interest to make sure to win by all and any menas, and leave no embarrassing witnesses behind.

War criminals have a neurological interest to depict his, or her, acts as morally justified… to make the perpetration of evil coherent with the love instinct. So it’s out of deep love and decency that the soldiers of Putin kill “Nazis” to save “Russians”. Similarly the original Nazis killed whoever was in the way to save Germans.

Where does it stop? It doesn’t. War criminality produces ever more war criminals. On the face of it, as Putin’s war of aggresion is the ultimate war crime, all those who obey his order to kill Ukrainians are themselves war criminals. To make sure that their war criminality will augment, orders have been given to loot civilians: one thing leads to another, reports have been made of rape-murder, summary execution, shooting on civilians, journalists, armored  vehicles have been caught on video crushing passenger cars with civilaians inside. Let alone bombing maternity and children hospitals… False flags operations have been conducted by the dozens, including strikes against Russia by Russians, or against Belarus (the Belarussian army has refused to fully attack Ukraine, although pressed hard to do so by Putin).

War criminality on an industrial scale is a factory and a chain reaction.

Putin’s hope is that, if he must use nuclear weapons, to force a victory, otherwise elusive, the top Russian generals will have been already involved deeply enough in Putin’s war criminality. Deeply enough, that the generals will be incapable of saying no when Putin orders nukes. 
 
War criminality is Putin’s safety psychological mechanism, key to his coming use of weapons of mass destruction. There is no other way for him to win.

Patrice Ayme 

Pregnant woman wounded in Russian aerial bombing of her maternity ward. Buildings are those of a hospital in Mariupol, Ukraine, a Russian speaking port city of half a million people. She and her baby died the next day. You can see her torn flesh in the picture. Criminal Putin and his vile and criminal parrots insist that Ukrainians are self-bombing, or that hospitals are military facilities. The WHO said that more than 40 Ukrainian hospitals were systematically bombed. Another war crime. Those who think that, by doing nothing against war crimes, they will not fall victim to them, are not just vile cowards and criminals, they are also idiots.

Old Obsessions Used By Pseudo-Progressives To Deny Incomparably Bigger Problems With Plutocracy

March 12, 2022

Obsession With Trump, Belief In Putin, Fear Of World War Three, Are Used By Pseudo-Progressives To Deny Incomparably Bigger Problems With Plutocracy

Plutocracy: Evil-Power, in other words, Putin’s adulation of Ivan the Terrible’s terror state, and the power of Putin’s 6,257 nukes. If one reads Putin, it is clear that World War Three has started: according to Putin, even Kosovo has to be liberated. All these people will not be liberated without “Western interference“, so Russia will have to “escalated to de-escalate” (the official Russian doctrine). 

Estonian Ambassador to the US Kristjan Prikk told CNN on Friday 3/11/2022 that it was “Orwellian” that Putin’s Foreign Minister Lavrov in one sentence says that Russia has not invaded Ukraine and yet the demands that he presents are about the surrender of Ukraine.”
“There is very little point of spending the diplomatic capital, I’d say, on efforts that from the other side are designed to be a failure,” he said.
 
We assess Putin feels aggrieved the West does not give him proper deference and perceives this as a war he cannot afford to lose,” Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines said. if he cannot afford to lose it, Putin will use nukes… if his generals let him do that.
 
“Russia’s invasion threatens not just Ukraine’s democracy; it threatens democracy and security across Europe,” US Vice President Kamala Harris said on 3/12/2022. Well, actually, Putin is threatening all of humanity, not just democracy here or there… Actually Harris expressed that opinion to some extent: “The ocean that separates us will not leave us untouched by this aggression…

To be obsessed by Trump while the world confronts the nuclear terrorist and WW3, would be petty.. But I understand many in the aghast public want to deny reality… many of my readers wrote to me that Putin was denazifying Ukraine! And that Ukrainians were busy committing genocide against Russians. Bombing strictly civilian targets is a war crime. Putin’s goons have been targetting strictly civilian locales, not just building, but also schools, hospitals (at least 16 of them), and food storage or food distribution areas, even shoe factories (a method the Nazis used in Poland, starting September 1, 1939, with the aim of annihilating the Polish population). Here is a residential area in Kyiv, attacked by a Russian missile:

By contrast, President Biden, @POTUS, a United States government official, tweeted: 

“I want to be clear: We will defend every inch of NATO territory with the full might of a united and galvanized NATO. But we will not fight a war against Russia in Ukraine. A direct confrontation between NATO and Russia is World War III. And something we must strive to prevent.”

We will not fight a war against Russia? Does that empower Putin? Yes. Yet, many denied it. Typical is this comment addressed to me, after I claimed that Biden was empowering Putin more than he should. John Thomas: “Biden is not “empowering Putin”. The only President who did that was that other guy – Whatshisname. Something about getting dirt on people called Joe and Hunter. Can’t Remember the details. Ask Rudy. He might remember 😛”

When Putin tried something he had not done before in the Donbas, Trump secretly sent Javelin anti-tanks missiles, without waiting for Congress (Trump got Congress’ approval later). That stopped Putin at the time. 

However, Biden has been doing the opposite, instead of talking softly and yielding a big stick, he has talked loud, while brandishing a blade of grass. Biden made announcement effects, while delaying weapon shipments. This happened twice last year, and in 2022 too. 

First a shipment of weapons scheduled (from the Trump era) in Spring was stopped. Then in November, Biden signed a security treaty with Ukraine, but sent no weapons. Stingers announced by Biden long ago, arrived in Ukraine only after Putin invaded. Putin sees this, all these delayed and insufficient shipments, and knows where his WEF/Davos relative, Biden, really stands. 

BTW, what about the check of 3 million dollars Hunter got from the wife of Moscow’s mayor?  

A US Senate investigation, whose report was released, alleged that Elena Baturina, a Russian businesswoman and the wife of late Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov, sent $3.5 million in 2014 to a firm called Rosemont Seneca Thornton. The payment was identified as a “consultancy agreement.” Hunter Biden was a co-founder and CEO of the investment firm Rosemont Seneca Advisors.

Trump’s energy policy, by making the US a net exporter of fossil fuels, weakened Putin. Were the Trump fossil fuel surplus available, Europe could cut off Putin’s 700 million dollars a day payments for fossil fuels much faster. So to say Trump empowered Putin more than Biden did, and does, is contradictory to rolled out evidence. 

Trump Derangement Syndrome has evolved into a method of distracting away from the war to save democracy from plutocracy. Extremely powerful, wealthy and influential monopolists who are determined enemies of democracy get a pass by expressing their hatred for a particular individual, Trump. Trump Derangement Syndrome has become a cover-up for incomparably greater evil… 

Even Biden understands this, and, preparing for next years’s (if there is a next year!) Republican domination, thanks the Republican leaders of Congress and Senate this week for their cooperation for delaying a bill to receive agreement with the Europeans on new measures against Putin.

Ah, lest I would be accused of incoherence in the matter of energy, by extolling Trump’s fossil fuel policy: it’s a big subject. US based fossil fuels are cleaner, ecologically and politically. Buying fossil fuels produced in a very dirty way by dictators is less optimal than the alternative Trump built. What progressives should push for is fundamental research in energy, and regulations. Instead, Biden (mostly) decided to send money to his friends, and call that an energy policy. Biden is spending ten times more on electric plugs and cars than on thermonuclear fundamental research (same as Trump). Electric plugs and expensive electric cars should get no public money. Fundamental research can only get public money.
