PUTIN, PLUTOCRACY & The WEST (Standard)

May 24, 2022

Putin played the West. But first the West played Putin. Or more exactly the powers that be in the West played Putin [1].  This deliberate instrumentalization of Putin by the West became obvious early on. 

A number of events, perpetrators and witnesses revealed that Putin an the secret service he used to lead, the Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti, lit. Committee for State Security, FSB/KGB the Russian/Soviet secret security political police, had orchestrated the bombing of appartment building blocks in Russia.

Why?

The KGB/FSB had constrained (elected) Russian president Yeltsin to choose and nominate Putin as Prime Minister, first. Then Yeltsin made Putin President. The KGB/FSB had made Yeltsin an offer he couldn’t refuse, obviously. 

However elections had to be conducted soon and Putin was pulling only 2%. One factor that had humiliated and weakened Yeltsin was the first war with Chechnya, which Russia had lost, giving that Muslim country de facto independence. Putin accused Chechnya to have done these multiple apartment building attacks, which killed hundreds of Russians, and viewing this as a casus belli, Putin attacked Chechnya with maximal force…. Conveniently discarding all rules about civilized warfare… in the grand old tradition of Russian wars, especially those conducted in the Caucasus mountains. 

One Chechnen out of six was killed, the capital, Grozny was leveled, and Putin won totally over his imaginary enemy. Putin became wildly popular and got elected Russian president in a landslide. Considering how he got elected, though, we should not view him as a legitimate president.

Western intelligence knew all of this, and it was obvious Putin had orchestrated it, as Chechnya had no interest whatsoever to disrupt the status quo… whereas Putin had. 


The West kept on shaking Putin’s hand, because the West knew the evil Putin did in Chechnya, and how he got in power, leveraging that. Knowing that he knew they knew, Western leaders thought Putin was their man, who would do their thing, namely a cheap energy policy. But minds, and, in particular evil, have an inertia of their own. So Putin kept on doing evil, what he did best, and the West kept hoping he was their man, providing cheap fossil fuel energy.


Then Putin became the darling of the West. A genocidal mass murderer became central to world energy policy. At first sight, this is counterintuitive and paradoxal: how could a tyrannical murderous evil monster become the friend of representative democracies?

Well, what if these representative democracies are mostly only democratic in name, and mostly represent global plutocrats?

There is nothing new in this strategy: in the 1930s, the Western plutocrats did the same with Mussolini, Franco, Hitler, and, less well-known, Stalin. Hirohito got oil to invade China from US plutocrats. Plutocracy means evil-power. It was evil to enable these evil-doesr, but most profitable to Western plutocrats.

Plutocrats love evil tyrants: their kind, writ large.

The Putin problem is a plutocratic problem. It’s global plutocracy which played us, and Putin was one of its pawns, as Hitler and Stalin were.

***

P/S 1: The essence of this comment, that many of the world’s tyrants, in the last century, were instruments of global plutocracy, was censored by the plutocratic New York Times. Hundreds of innocuous comments were allowed, though.

I then sent another comment, not directly accusing global plutocracy, the one in italics underlined above. It was immediately published.

One has to understand that the descendants of those who crucially helped Stalin and  Hitler to get or stay in power, are themselves in power… And act through countless schemes, foundations, universities, think tanks, corporate boards, etc… All this held by anonymous corporations… 

***

P/S 2: Many naive and ill-informed left leaning individuals, following sheepishly the propaganda they are submitted to by their minders in the Kremlin, believe that Putin is an opponent of the “West”… because that’s what he says. Hitler also pretended to be a defender of minorities, and just like Putin, was an instrument of global plutocracy. Hitler knew this, and told confidantes he was exasperated with making nice talk with plutocrats… For example before a dinner in Italy he told Rommel he resented having to sit next to some extremely wealthy Italian aristocrat…

Naive leftists have then made a weapon of global plutocracy, Putin, into their hero. 

Just as Hitler, or Mao, or Hirohito, Putin, forgetting that he is where he is because of Western plutocracy, has gone rogue.

Amusingly the French secret services (DGSE) knew very well that, in the 1990s, Western ecologists were paid by Putin and his ilk, the Russian intelligence services. So follow this: Putin and his ilk are put in power by Western fossil fuel plutocrats, and then, on their (apparent) own, feed ecologists, who, not by coincidence, demolish nuclear industry and nuclear research (for better nuclear industry)… With the final effect of ostering fossil fuels domination by Western plutocracy and its proxies (say ARAMCO)….

Putin did this in Chechnya, here is Grozny, 23 years ago. Then he did it in Aleppo an ancient metropolis in Syria, then in many places over Ukraine. The point is that Western leaders knew very well about Chechnya… and it excited them… Western elected politicians are selected, then elected, becuase they are most qualified to represent eil power. In Putin, they seriously saw their man, and kept shaking his hand. And this is not just a case of the big bad evil US governing classes… German and French leadership obviously look at the Warsaw-Kyiv axis with a jaundiced eye. Those who know history well know that, for centuries, Poland, Ukraine and Lithuania were the same imperial power. Hence the diatribe of the French leader against the Polishone, and unfounded accusation of corruption against Ukraine on French “service public” TV… While the blatant corruption in France (how come the hyper wealthy pays no tax, and thus kept getting wealtheir and more influenctial?) is carefully not adressed…

Kill Nuclear Tyranny Before It’s Too Late

May 22, 2022

Abstract: Putin’s collaborators say that we should submit to him, because he threatened to destroy us. Wisdom says the opposite: we should get rid of Putin, because he threatened to destroy humanity. 80 years after Auschwitz, that should not be too hard to understand.

***

International law and the United Nations recognize that “war of aggression is the ultimate crime against humanity“… Why? Precisely because war of aggression entails many other crimes against humanity.

Recognizing this after World War Two, the International Tribunal established jurisprudence: those who launch wars are the worst criminals. Putin committed the ultimate crime. (To this Putin collaborators write a fake history where reality is inverted, or invented.) 

Thus, some Nazi leaders were executed “just” for promoting or enabling the Nazi war of aggression (Rosenberg, Von Ribbentrop, among others).

The concept that war of aggression was the ultimate crime was a recent development: World War Two became the massacre it was precisely because only France and the UK viewed it this way. In 1939, 1940, France, Britain (and their colonies) fought alone against Nazism.

Actually the treacherous US president and Nazifying US Congress applied sanctions against France and Britain for attacking the Nazis! Wunderbar! Result: At least 17 million civilians were assassinated in extermination camps, 100 million dead overall (as Japan felt it could get away with invading China, where it killed 40 millions).

***

By September 1 1939, the pattern of Hitler attacking and invading other countries was established. As Hitler refused to stop his invasion of Poland, France and Britain declared war. Soon Russia joined Hitler in his attack on Poland, and, by November 1939, Russia invaded Finland. Afterwards, thanks to Russian oil and other resources, Hitler was able to conquer Europe, but for Britain, protected by the sea, and Hitler’s collaborators: Sweden (big time), Switzerland, and Spain.

This time the invasive Russian autocrat, perhaps encouraged by the Afghan debacle and his 6,500 nuclear weapons, has attacked rather alone: China’s autocrat, Mr. Xi may have second thoughts about the “unlimited friendship”, so no Hitler to help out, and 42 democracies have allied themselves materially with the Ukrainian democracy, constituting, de facto, a super-NATO… Against the tyran brandishing with relish the extinction of humanity, lest he gets his wayand that is, to invade countries when he feels like it, or when he thinks they are not real, or should not exist. 

Pathetically, some naively argue that, precisely because Putin wants very much to kill us all, with nuclear bombs, we should surrender to him, and not irritate him in any way…. Those who know better the history of tyranny through the ages, will draw the opposite conclusion from the same facts… If you share a cage with a furious, hungry tiger, it does not matter how much you try to pet him: he will end up eating you (this has happened for real more than once). The cage we share is this planet. 

Russia’s dictatorship was losing the war of the Open Society, and the more it closed itself up, the more it lost. So it went all the way down the royal road to fascism, hoping for the best, and now settling for not as good right away. 

The Kremlin nuclear tyrant has many collaborators, worldwide, carrying his propaganda as if he was a nuclear Jesus. This propaganda is now becoming the most important part of Putin’s war effort. What Putin hopes is that his propaganda will undermine the long term effort of the 42 democracies opposing his dictatorship.

Indeed, those collaborators are motivated: Putin has proven generous in the past with his collaborators. Putin’s collaborators disseminate lies which fuel the sort of sympathy the Nazis weaponized for years. Much of the ephemeral victories of the Nazis, in 1936-1940 were made possible by National-Socialist propganda, which was very similar to Putin’s. That propaganda was particularly effective in France, as the French Communist Party was under the orders of Moscow, itself secretly, and then officially, collaborating with the Nazis. The result was that most new French fighter planes did not receive their armament (the military high command was afraid it would be seized by Nazi/Soviet collaborators). During the fatal week of May 10, 1940, France therefore couldn’t put in the air enough fighters. 

The Kremlin nuclear tyrant fosters lies, such as Ukraine not allowing COVID vaccines (it allows six, including those allowed in the US and EU), or Ukraine closing TV stations (Putin propaganda stations also closed in the EU), or being vengeful against a past treacherous president (a Putin collaborator who violated the Ukrainian constitution, caused deaths, and is the object of national and international warrants of arrest from judicial proceedings) …

However, this is the Armageddon struggle between nuclear tyrnaical terror and the open democratic society: only the latter can be sustained on a small planet.   

A first Russian officer, 21 year old, is on trial for killing a civilian. There are several witnesses, including other Russian soldiers, who were arrested with him. The officer admitted his guilt, apparently an act of madness, as he and other soldiers were fleeing after commandeering a car, consecutive to the destruction of their armored vehicles.

Evidence for thousands of war crimes is being gathered in Ukraine, by many countries, the UN and even French military war crime specialist units (NATO boots on the ground!) There is a precedent in Bosnia and Serbia of arresting war criminals who led countries and states. 

***

Besides repeating absurd lies on facts, Putin collaborators try to distract public opinion by points of detail, or by exhibiting a complete lack of an ethical core, a moral desert… presented as the epitome of wisdom.

It will not work this time. If the second world war had been won in 1939-1940, few would have died. It was not won, because France and Britain fought Germany, Russia/USSR, Japan and Italy in 1940, plus very bad luck. This time it’s just one fascist dictatorship against 42 democracies, which reacted promptly, this time.

History does not always repeat itself as stupidly as before. Civilization can learn, and does.

Have to do world war against a rogue nuclear armed tyranny? Do it early, before the nuclear tyrant has subjected too many minds with abject infamy.

Putin delendus est!

Patrice Ayme

 

The cartoon of Stalin and Hitler killing Poland was drawn on September 20, 1939. So some US citizens had a fair idea of what was going on. At the time, Britain had basically no army, so France was facing basically alone the coalition of Germany, Italy, Japan and the USSR. Hitler used massive Soviet resources to invade France… and the Soviet fifth column or threat thereof.

***

In an eerie repeat of history, Russia’s Ambassador to Venezuela claimed that   the Soviet Union did not invade Poland on Sept 17, 1939 and that it was in fact Poland, not the USSR, that collaborated with Nazi Germany.  His explanation of how half of what was then Poland came to be under Soviet occupation is similar to the arguments of Russian liar Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine.

Ambassador Vladimir Zayemsky’s delirium appeared in “Correo del Orinoco” on Sunday, Sept 20, 2015, under the title “The Truth as Historical Imperative”.   This venal character pretends that there has been an increase in attempts to attribute “supposed” crimes during the Second World War to the Soviet Union, and calls Poland the worst liar. A few years later, the Putin dictatorship removed memorials to some of the massacres that the USSR committed against Poland (for example Katyn, which dozens of thousands in the Polish elite).

By engaging in what he calls a campaign of lies, Russian authorities claim that Poland tries to divert attention from its own crimes during the Second World War.  Zayemsky claims that the Soviet Union did not invade Poland on Sept 17, but merely took back territory which Poland had illegally stolen. However Polish territory was settled internationally in Versailles in 1919, when Poland was made free from the German occupier.

Reality is that the Soviet Union invaded Poland, without a declaration of war, on Sept 17, 1939.  This was according to the Secret Protocol to the USSR-Naziland, Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact of Aug 23, 1939. Two months later, the Kremlin tyranny invaded Finland. Nine days later, the USSR was kicked out of the League of Nations…

Merkel A Double Agent And Other Stories:

April 15, 2022

Putin should have become known as a  genocidal tyrant after he killed one Chechen out of six. However, Germany made itself fully dependent upon the genocidal tyrant, years after the genocide. Now Germany and other European genocidal collaborators are sending more than a billion dollars a day to feed the genocidal tyrant’s war crime factory.

In light of this, and her personal, murky history, one may wonder whether Angela Merkel was not a double agent (truly working for Putin’s KGB). She declared that, when the KGB approached her, she brushed them off by telling them that “she talked too much”. This sounds like disinformation to me: Merkel knew that the fact that the KGB tried to recruit her would come up, so she planted plausible denial. She made do with junior dictatorial positions and becoming spokesperson for the Stalinian East German state.

Putin calls Ukrainian nationalists, “Nazis. The pseudo-left in the US or Europe smear its nationalist opponents by calling them tribal (“ethnonationalists”). This flies in the face of common sense: “Ethnonationalism” is hard to come by in very multi-ethnic societies such as the US, UK, or France; ethnonationalists just can’t get elected. Another trick of the pseudo-left is to demonize its “populist” opposition by calling it “terrifying” (a label the NYT smears Le Pen with).

The French political system is similar to the US one: it’s Congress which passes laws. One could imagine (it won’t happen because Macron will be re-elected) a situation where Le Pen is president and her PM is Macron, and he does what he wants (this happened before: Mitterand-Balladur). Le Pen was a European MP for 13 years, she will not dismantle Europe (I will probably vote Macron; but calling her “terrifying” makes me feel like voting for her…). 

All of French politics, including its most extreme right, is on the left of Sanders and AOC. That may be terrifying to Americans, indeed.

One has to make a distinction between “oligarchy” (rule of the few) and “plutocracy” (evil-power). A junta is oligarchic, but not necessarily evil. Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and those who financed them (many of them from the US) were plutocrats. Autocracy is the power of one, it necessarily entails plutocracy, as the innate sense of justice of the species makes such a rule unbearable, so it can only be maintained by force. Autocracy was enshrined by Nicholas I in the Russian constitution, and followed by Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, and now Putin.

[A shorter version of this teaching comment was published by NYT after 20 hours delay.]

Patrice Ayme

P/S: Here is the context of the preceding. NYT and its Nobel Krugman find French presidential candidate Le Pen “terrifying”. I think what is terrifying is that the truth of Merkel and other collaborators of Putin (Schröder; ecologists, other politicians), cannot be looked in the face. Krugman wrote:

Now, it’s important to understand the context. France provides social benefits on a scale beyond the wildest dreams of U.S. progressives: universal health care, huge family benefits and more. Macron isn’t challenging the fundamentals of that system. He is, however, trying to trim some benefits… Le Pen, by contrast, actually wants to reduce the retirement age for some workers.

If she wins, the consequences for France, Europe and the world will be terrifying. But there is some genuine populism — advocacy of policies that might actually help workers — in her platform.”

Krugman does not describe why Le Pen is “terrifying“. Not even one element of “Le Pen terror” is rolled out. Actually he does not even bother with one element of disagreement he may have with Le Pen. The 53 year French blonde lawyer turned European and French elected representative, just “terrifies” the world, while Krugman and the New York Times still sing the praises of Obama, who “reset with Russia“, after Putin invaded Georgia, to empower Putin for eight years, inviting him in Syria and Ukraine, while Obama himself was killing thousand of civilians in emerging countries… Krugman insinuated that Le Pen was an “ethnonationalist“, a tribal nationalist:

Ron DeSantis would be Florida’s Orban if he could, state governors don’t have as much repressive power as rulers of sovereign nations.

Still, the comparison of European and U.S. ethnonationalists raises some interesting questions. In particular, as the G.O.P. has become a full-on antidemocratic party, why has it also remained the party of plutocrats and the enemy of any policy that might help its many working-class supporters?

To understand the puzzle, consider the policy positions of Marine Le Pen, who has a serious chance of becoming France’s next president. Her party, National Rally — previously called the National Front — is often described as right-wing. And on social issues it is; in particular, the party is largely defined by its hostility to immigrants and the alleged threat they pose to France’s national identity. On economic policy, however, Le Pen is if anything to the left of President Emmanuel Macron.

Orban, elected four times Hungarian Prime Minister, is the bête noire of the US pseudo-left, which is heavily financed by the plutocrat Soros, one of the world’s wealthiest person, a currency manipulator and frontrunner, with philosophical pretense, of Jewish and Hungarian origin (I own books of Soros murky Popper pseudo-philosophy, his fig leaf). Anybody from the US pseudo-left is supposed to hate Orban… So Krugman hates Orban, and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson loves Orban (I am more nuanced than either, but hate Orban’s Putinophilia). DeSantis is of Italian descent on both sides. Does that make him an “ethnoitalian”? The terror of eating pasta?

So I sent the comment, in a simpler version, and, naturally, it was delayed 20 hours. (My lawyer told me that my assertion about Merkel was legally problematic!) In the end, it was published,

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.

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2022/03/01/why-putin-is-worse-than-hitler/. 

 

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…

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…
