who killed RT france?......

panic chez les shadow dancers......

The fact that the US, Germany and several other countries announced they would be supplying Ukraine with main battle tanks doesn’t mean NATO is at war with Moscow, the French Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday. The comments from Quai d’Orsay come after the controversial speech by German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock in the European Parliament earlier this week. 

“We are not at war with Russia and none of our partners are,” ministry spokeswoman Anne-Claire Legendre said on Thursday, according to AFP. “The delivery of military equipment... does not constitute co-belligerence.”

The Kiev Purge: What has spurred a wave of resignations among senior Ukrainian officials?
Turmoil in the capital and the regions may be a result of the West’s dissatisfaction with how things are unfolding

On January 23, in the course of his customary evening video address, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky announced major personnel changes in his government. The decision is linked both to his wish to demonstrate anti-corruption measures to the West and a rise in domestic political conflicts.

hhummffff..... Die autoritäre Tendenz deutscher Herrscher.....

Unfortunately, the following text cannot give hope for better German politics in 2023. Considering the oath that all members of the government had to take when taking office – “I swear that I will devote my strength to the welfare of the German people, increase its benefits, avert harm from it, uphold and defend the Basic Law and the laws of the Federation, fulfil my duties conscientiously and do justice to everyone.” –, the German federal government in office since December 2021 is in many respects a total failure.

the US has announced it will send 31 abrams battle tanks... will it be enough?......


NATO's best tanks are going to Ukraine, what will it mean on the battlefield?

Kiev will get what it demanded from the West, but will it be enough?

Tank supplies to Ukraine from NATO members is the top news story this week. Kiev has been calling for these weapons from its western sponsors since the beginning of the Russian offensive, and it looks like now, eleven months into the fighting, these demands are being met.

The US has announced it will send 31 Abrams main battle tanks. In a hastily scheduled speech on Wednesday, President Joe Biden noted that they are complicated to operate and maintain, so the US will provide Kiev with “parts and equipment necessary to effectively sustain these tanks on the battlefield.”

dear rupert....

YOU DON’T KNOW ME FROM A SOAP PUMP (SOAP-BARS ARE SO PASSé). BUT I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND YOU THAT THE TIME OF HAVING FUN WITH AMERICAN/AUSTRALIAN/WORLD POLITICS HAS COME TO AN END. 

THE SAME GOES FOR THE FAKY-LEFTY, GEORGE SOROS.

THE WORLD IS ENTERING A “PHASE”. IN PREVIOUS EPOCH OF HUMAN IMBECILITY, THE GAMES BETWEEN KINGS WAS ONLY AFFECTING A FEW POPULATIONS. EVEN WORLD WARS THAT KILLED SO MANY, ACTUALLY KILLED LESS THAN PERSONS BORN. THE "AMERICAN" (SPANISH) FLU DID MORE DAMAGE.

WHAT HAS CHANGED IS, THOUGH THE DOOMSDAY CLOCK IS AT 90 SECONDS TO MIDNIGHT, THE CALCULATION IS FALSE. EVEN THE MOST ACCURATE CLOCKS CANNOT PREDICT THE FUTURE.

THUS THE NEXT TIC CAN GO HORRIBLY WRONG. 

even the best napoleons made mistakes......

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO RELATE HISTORY BLOW BY BLOW. SO HISTORIANS WILL CHOOSE IMPORTANT MOMENTS AND DECISIVE ACTS. AS “WE” (THE WESTERN WORLD — THE OCCIDENT) BUILD UP TOWARDS A WAR AGAINST RUSSIA, WE (GUS LEONISKY AND HIS PUB MATES) HAVE BEEN TRYING TO EXPOSE THE HYPOCRISY OF POLITICS — MAINLY THAT OF THE AMERICAN POLITICS.

KEN BURNS — DIRECTOR OF THE U.S. AND THE HOLOCAUST — EXPRESSES THIS THUS:

 

exposing the hypocrisy of the western foreign policies......

They span three generations and give their country reason to be enormously proud, writes Rick Sterling. All have depended on freedom of the press, which is now at stake.

Australia has produced extraordinary journalists across three generations: Wilfred Burchett (deceased in 1983), John Pilger (83 years old but still active) and Julian Assange (51 years old, currently in London’s Belmarsh prison).

Each of these journalists made unique contributions to our understanding of the world. Although Australia is part of the Western world, each of these journalists exposed and criticised Western foreign policy.

Yale Geniuses Say Russia Not Needed – Logic and Common Sense Say Otherwise

What is the price of a Yale professor? If you wanted to buy one lock, stock, and barrel, depending on what you want to use one (or two) for, the cost could be pretty steep. More often than not, today’s Ivy League know-it-all types seem like soap salespeople. Whoever supplies the grant money gets the squeaky brain grease.

world war three is started by a stupid german woman........

AS THIS "GREEN" AWFUL WOMAN (SHE IS A CONSERVATIVE NAZI IN DISGUISE) DECLARES THAT "GERMANY IS AT WAR WITH RUSSIA", WE NEED TO TAKE STOCK OF WHAT THE HISTORY BEHIND THIS STUPID STATEMENT IS. DOES GERMANY WANTS TO BE BOMBED AGAIN INTO PRE-HISTORY TO SATISFY THE ANGLO/SAXONS, IN THE AMERICAN EMPIRE QUEST TO DESTROY RUSSIA SINCE 1917? GUS REPUBLISHES AN IMPORTANT ARTICLE BELOW:

simple raw history of the long heartland conflict.....

It took almost 10 years of teaching before I finally grasped the extent to which secondary American history textbooks fostered misunderstanding and confusion. 

The depth of the problem became apparent following class discussions of a 12-page reading assignment on the “Origins of the Cold War.” When I made the assignment I warned the students that I would be asking questions and suggested they take notes to use in class. On the due date the majority had notes, but the discussions did not turn out well

 

bleed until defeat.......

It is difficult to admit, but the Anglo-Saxons do not hide from it. To paraphrase a famous quote from the first Secretary General of the Alliance, Nato was designed to "keep Russia out, the Americans in and the European Union under trusteeship". There is no other possible interpretation of the continuation of the useless "sanctions" against Moscow and the vain and deadly fighting in Ukraine.

 

The war in Ukraine to maintain the European Union under tutelage

 

by Thierry Meyssan

 

can stupidity win wars?......possibly... but unlikely

Not only is there no threat from Russia that is independent of American policy, but it is also the expansion of NATO to ‘meet the threat from Russia’ that creates the very threat that expansion was supposed to meet.

The US proxy war on Russia is stupid. Professor of Law at the LSE, Peter Ramsay, in a review of Benjamin Abelow’s book, How the West Brought War to Ukraine, outlines how the latter eschews the simplistic ‘Putin invaded Ukraine’ narrative -- attributing primary responsibility for the war to less proximate causes: ‘American governmental stupidity and blindness’ and ‘the deference and cowardice’ of Europe’s leaders toward this American governmental ‘stupidity’.

peanuts for the falling monkeys.....

Hollywood blockbusters Fall Guy and Planet of the Apes are filming in Sydney, and sci-fi remake Metropolis in Melbourne – all at high public expense, subsidised by state and federal governments. Is it worth paying for Americans telling American stories? Or would the money be better spent on Australians telling Australian stories? Michael West follows the money.

Scenes of Hollywood star Ryan Gosling on the Sydney Harbour Bridge over the weekend were met with fawning adulation in the mainstream media, yet with some consternation on social media. After all, they shut down traffic on the Bridge down for hours; yet climate protestor Violet Coco is facing a 15-month prison sentence for blocking one lane.
