    The alleged IQ map of the world. BS. It is some sort of education level map (look at Japan, there is
    no way that Japanese have higher IQs than Chinese and Europeans) that fakes the values for Russia
    and Ukraine. Any such map that puts the USA ahead of Russia is a total joke. Since this is clearly
    and education map and not an actual IQ map, the fact that the vast majority in the USA are less educated
    (in STEM) than Russians instantly disproves the map's claims.

    I guess I'm blind, but I hardly see a difference between Russia and the US. Also, what are the actual numbers for China and Japan? According to most studies, Chinese, Japanese and (South) Korean IQs are almost identical, i.e. around 105, and so are American and Russian at slightly below 100.

    It's quite possible that the impact of the 90s still lingers in Russia even when it comes to IQs (this can clearly be seen in Ukraine), but it will not last for much longer. Russia also has minorities with considerably worse results, especially in North Caucasus, although their impact should be limited. That said, American trends are worse.

    In my opinion the modest differences between different "European" (including USA, Canada, Australia, etc.) and East Asian countries are not particularly relevant, and the estimates obviously are not 100% accurate either. The actually important point is that there are countries with high average IQs that are still "developing countries" (China, Vietnam, some other Southeast Asian countries, even Eastern Europe to an extent still) and those that have much lower IQs (basically all the rest, Brazil, India, to say nothing of Sub-Saharan Africa and even the Middle East).

    Of course, all of this is very politically incorrect wrongthink. But I don't see that as an example of "Western propaganda" against Russia.

    The NATO fake stream media loves to paint Russia as some sort of toilet of corruption. And the Pompous Ass Pompeo actually
    claims that Russian and China introduced corruption into Venezuela.

    The biggest single US government department of the USA is an actual toilet of corruption. This is not some local aberration.
    This is a pure banana republic style operation designed to funnel taxpayer money by the trillions of dollars into US
    MIC pockets. Banderastan can only aspire to such epic corruption.

    It is a rather obvious fact that those that scream the loudest about the wrong doing of others are, in fact, the worst
    wrong doers themselves.

    A few years ago Muhammad Yunus said something like "there is a lot of corruption in the west, they just give it other names."

    Donations to parties/politicians

    That is true. But what you have at the Pentagon is outright 3rd world corruption. There is no sophistication or polish. It is primitive
    rot.

    Cheesy NATO fake stream propaganda. Note that Nicaragua is on the list. If Nicaragua is a "rogue state", then the so-called
    "normal states" are totalitarian bootlicks living under the heel of Washington.

    Yes, and news just in... Karl Marx's crave was a communist plot....

    Perhaps they could make their pages more absorbent and two ply and then they would sell more issues to non western countries around the world...

    A sample of the foaming at the mouth hypocrisy of Americans. When they actually fund stooge candidates in Russian elections
    (e.g. Navalny, Nemtsov, etc.) and pay various shills like Politkovskaya to spread NATO propaganda inside Russia, well that's fine.
    But if Russia was to even think of doing the same, that is just Satanic and an attempt to take over the world.

    American propaganda tries to transfer onto Russia every crime that the USA has and is perpetrating. They undermine Venezuela,
    but it is Russia and China who are "guilty" of spreading corruption there. As if nobody knows anything about the decades of
    corrupt juntas that the USA installed in Latin America to serve its imperial needs. For example, the coup against a democratic
    government in Guatemala to secure the United Fruit Company operations (aka plantations and near-slaves working there).

    Nice to see some sanity in the USA. He does make the boiler plate plug for Lend-Lease, but the rest of his talk is very good.

    America was in bed with the Nazis. They basically laundered them avert WWII and initiated all sorts of revisionist history to
    fight the Cold War. One outcome of this revisionism was the Holodomor hoax. In this talk we also see how German war criminals
    were given the chance to frame the western view of the Soviet army. That is why we got the BS about human waves which
    never happened during WWII (Chinese tactics in Korea stand on their own).

    BTW, fooling the enemy is a prime directive of warfare known since before Sun Tzu. Surprise attacks are part of this.

    Russia has adopted a law on securing access to the global internet. Of course the NATO fake stream media and their fellow travelers
    in Russia claim this is about isolation and censorship. Being utter liars they omit the detail that no gateway access is being established
    and Russia currently has many more integration points with the global network than China. The law is about preventing the USA from
    blackmailing Russia by cutting Russia off from the global internet. This is not a trivial problem from Russia. Russia stands to lose
    20 billion rubles per day from any disruption from its access to the global internet.

    The western hysteria about this law highlights the Orwellian nature of western propaganda. Plus is minus and minus is plus. Never,
    ever take any characterization of the situation in Russia on any subject at face value from these blood libeling scumbags.

    In his defence he does mention that Lend Lease was largely effective in operation Bagration in the sense that it made it easier... it didn't win the war but it made that operation faster and more effective than it otherwise would have.

    The important thing is that this guy teaches their military... but not their politicians...

    Another masterpiece of propaganda excrement from "NGO" Bellona.

    https://bellona.org/news/nuclear-issues/2017-01-russian-fast-reactor-program-stalls-while-economy-plummets

    Hilarious.   The BN-800 was connected to the grid for full commercial operation in 2016.   Russia is producing fuel
    for this reactor:

    https://www.world-nuclear-news.org/Articles/TVEL-starts-batch-production-of-MOX-fuel-assemblie

    The commercial BN-1200 reactor design is completed:

    http://rosatomnewsletter.com/2017/05/31/okbm-afrikantov-completed-bn-1200-design/

    The only issue is tweaking the fuel mixture and layout design based on experience with the BN-800.

    The only thing that is stalling is the IQ of the western Russia haters and their fellow travelers in Russia.

    Well, the article is from January 2017, so it makes a little (and I do mean a little) more sense. Of course it's total BS regardless, just saying.

    The western dominated media space is a circle jerk of self-referencing BS. So this article is as current today as it was back in 2017. I have yet to see
    the precious NATO west forget any of the tropes it was bleating already decades ago.

    Lol, that's very true. Those tropes never die, or at the very least (in some cases) they are memory-holed, and that's the end of it.

    All those dead journalists, terrible demographics, and the whole "Putin controls all the media and he's becoming increasingly authoritarian, that's why he's so popular" narrative. As I mentioned earlier, it's almost entirely false for numerous reasons to begin with...

    But it would also mean that Putin is doing a TERRIBLE job at being a tyrant of his country – even though he's the Devil behind Trump and Brexit, among millions of other sins – because we've been hearing that since... 2005?

    Well even looking at the article, they admit it is a new area of nuclear power technology, an area the west failed at and gave up upon, but it holds the promise of being able to turn tens of thousands of tons of spent nuclear fuel rod waste into fuel again that can be used over and over... now correct me if I am wrong, but isn't that something worth spending a little money and time trying to achieve instead of the western solution of burying spend fuel rods or making them into armour penetration rounds and firing them at enemy during wars on foreign territory essentially poisoning enemy territory but also friendly troops...

    A bit like criticising the Wright Brothers because their entire first flight could have taken place within the wingspan of a Bear bomber and the first two could have taken place between the spread wings of a Blackjack...

    An immigrant's story in Canada. Not quite the paradise it's made out to be. I can vouch for what he is saying.

    He mixes Canada and the USA a bit too much. If he was really down on his luck, then he would be much worse off in the USA.

    Things in Canada are rough today compared to the 1990s. This hidden well by the MSM which avoids the subject, but
    there is enough evidence that things have gotten poorer. If anything, the immigrants and dirty money are maintaining a
    Ponzi racket creating the illusion of wealth. When the musical chairs stop, reality will smack Canadian upside the head
    really hard.
