    I post this news here because I interpret it as yet another sign of the unprecedented level of readiness that Russia is placing herself under. The are expecting the West to fall to new lows anytime now.

    The American Empire has fallen, though Washington may not know it yet
    Nebojsa Malic

    Wanting to turn back the clock and restore the American Empire to what it was before Donald Trump’s presidency is a fool’s errand. It’s already a thing of the past – and the storming of the US Capitol was just the last straw.

    Don’t take my word for it, though. “If the post-American era has a start date, it is almost certainly today,” argued none other than the head of the Council on Foreign Relations – the foremost think tank advocating for the Empire in Washington – after Wednesday’s storming of the Capitol by several hundred Trump supporters protesting the certification of the election for Biden.

    “No one in the world is likely to see, respect, fear, or depend on us in the same way again,” lamented CFR president Richard Haas.

    Sure enough, as Haas was saying this the NATO secretary-general tweeted about the “shocking scenes” in Washington and demanded that Joe Biden’s election “must be respected.” British and French leaders followed suit, as did the Organization of American States. Turkey “expressed concern.” Canada and India chimed in.

    Even Venezuela got into the act, condemning “acts of violence” in Washington and “political polarization” in the US, while expressing hope that Americans “can blaze a new path toward stability and social justice.”

    Keep in mind that the US has refused to recognize Venezuela’s elected president or parliament, attempting for the past two years to install an unelected ‘interim president’ instead and call it democracy. While the Trump administration has led this effort, the Democrats – now poised to have absolute power in the US – have been fully on board.

    Likewise, the only time the Republican establishment and the Democrat ‘Resistance’ banded together in near-unison was to override Trump’s veto of the NDAA military funding bill, which contained a provision that would block him or any future president from withdrawing troops from overseas endless wars without prior congressional approval. The commitment to the Empire runs deep in the Washington ‘swamp’, as Trump used to call it.

    “We are seeing images that I never imagined we would see in this country – in some other capital yes, but not here,” said Haas.

    This unwitting admission of ‘American exceptionalism’ basically says it’s fine for US-backed activists to storm parliaments in “regimes” that Washington dislikes and wants to change, but when Americans rebel against their own government they believe is acting illegitimately, that’s beyond the pale.

    While what happened Wednesday was not actually a “color revolution,” the visuals were certainly similar enough for the world to take notice. It would be wrong, however, to blame the Capitol “insurrection” for the demise of the American Empire, when it was merely the last domino to fall.

    Again, don’t take my word for it – here’s Ishan Tharoor, a columnist for the notoriously pro-establishment Washington Post, declaring on Thursday that for “many abroad,” the vision of the US as a shining city on a hill with global moral influence and authority “has already died a thousand deaths.”

    For some of these people, Tharoor argued, this narrative was “always an illusion to obscure the Washington-engineered coups and client military regimes.” Indeed.

    Democrats and their neocon allies have spent the past four years blaming Trump’s ‘America First’ policy, lamenting that he was acting unilaterally, antagonizing “allies” and creating a “leadership vacuum” in the world. Those are the talking points of the incoming administration as well.

    Except they’ve clearly forgotten the events of January 2020, when Trump ordered the drone assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. There were no protests from US “allies” – or should we say vassals? Instead, they fell in line with amazing alacrity.

    Trump actually embraced the American Empire, he simply dispensed with the polite fictions it had used to dress up as something else over the years.

    Ironically, it was the mobilization of the entire US political establishment to get rid of Trump – starting with ‘Russiagate’ and the impeachment circus over the phone call to Ukraine, with nationwide riots about “racial justice” and the politically weaponized coronavirus lockdowns along the way – that did the lion’s share of exploding the myths that maintained US hegemony, both at home and abroad.

    Remember the ‘Deep State’ that was supposedly a Trumpian conspiracy theory? Yet its existence was confirmed in the impeachment hearings, a former CIA director openly praised it, and the eventual revelations of a FBI plot to frame General Flynn removed any vestiges of doubt.

    The mainstream media’s war on Trump, later joined by social media platforms – censorship of the legitimate and accurate Hunter Biden laptop story just before the election being just the most egregious example – also played out for the world to see. In the end, they banned Trump from every social media platform while he was still in office, even as he said he would leave peacefully.

    Basically, the entire US establishment was so consumed by the desire to burn Trump at the proverbial stake, they chopped up the scaffolding that held up the Empire to use as firewood.

    In a speech recently, Joe Biden vowed to “rebuild, reclaim America’s place in the world” as a country that will “champion liberty and democracy once more.” That’s a daunting task, on par with putting the genie back into the bottle, un-spilling milk, or putting Humpty Dumpty back together again.

    Ironically, the only thing that could repair American prestige in the world might be to patch up the American Republic, almost broken by the four years of ‘Resistance’ to Trump. But as that would entail some self-awareness and soul-searching, it remains, shall we say, highly unlikely.

    since he is posting this bullshit video multiple times here, I will respond with same comment I gave in other thread:

    There won't be a direct war.

    It will be much if the same shit as going on already for years.

    BTW, why did South Front go total retard anyway? Did their financing get a big doner from any specific party?

    South Front is shit. They are stealing peoples money to create crap videos.

    The US Keeps Losing In Every Simulated War-Game Against China

    In the autumn of 2020, the US Air Force held a simulated war game against China, set approximately 10 years in the future.

    It began with a biological weapon that quickly dealt with America’s military bases and warships in the Indo-Pacific region.

    Then, China staged a massive military exercise to veil a gigantic deployment of an invasion force.

    The simulation culminated with Chinese missile strikes raining down on U.S. bases and warships in the region, and a lightning air and amphibious assault on the island of Taiwan.

    China won, within a very short timeframe.....

    When yanquis accuse their "enemies" of something, you know for sure that they plan on using something similar or worse.

    The US is the number one country on the planet for the use of biowarfare against civilian targets. This includes the attempt
    to destroy Cuban, Soviet and North Korean agriculture. We likely do not even know all the other cases where they pulled
    their cheats.

    Exactly... their criticisms of their supposed enemies often reflect the tactics and mentality of their own evil wants and desires...

    It is amusing trying to blame Putin for killing an ex Russian spy while Saudi Arabia have a Saudi National brutally murdered and dismembered in a Saudi embassy in Turkey, or the US flys murder bots around the skies of several countries killing thousands of people every year... no trial... no oversight... no repercussions...

    They are at an airfield... why would they need GPS to know where they are?

    If they have just taken off or are just landing how shit would their inertial navigation systems need to be for them to suddenly be lost... can they not read a map.

    And then you read the article and the attempts to jam supposedly all failed.

    Sounds like claims of election interference... they tried but did not succeed but we need to punish them for trying.

    Thing is that the US election system is clearly broken and I suspect accusations of interference were used to explain Hilary losing the election she was so sure she was going to win.

    So if that is the case can we assume the A-400M has some avionics problems they clearly want to now blame on Russia...

    Boy crying wolf again....

    Regarding the thread on Sweden reading the comments below was very interesting... like one comment:

    Regarding Swedens neutrality during WWII Ross xnumx said:


    Not such a shitty neutrality. These "neutrals", while the world was bleeding during WWII, decided to take on the "heavy burden of neutrality":

    The peculiarities of Swedish neutrality remained even from the moment of Germany's attack on the USSR together with its allies on June 22, 1941. This was very well manifested when the Swedish-German trade agreement was concluded on December 20, 1941, but which Germany had taken from Sweden by 1944 million tons of iron ore, meeting their needs by 38%. On average, each German gun and tank contained up to 90% Swedish metal. In transit through Sweden from third countries (mainly first from the United States and then from Argentina), Germany received oil products, as well as wool, leather, coffee, wine, tobacco products, clothing and other types of scarce goods. Sweden exported coal, coke, synthetic rubber and artificial fertilizers from Germany. In the banks of Sweden, Germany and all citizens placed significant financial resources, including values ​​confiscated in the occupied territories of European countries. In turn, Swedish banks provided large loans to industrial enterprises in Germany, not excluding those producing military products. Many Swedish firms that produced weapons, in particular artillery and small arms, supplied components to the Wehrmacht throughout the war, as well as to the army of Germany's allies - to Hungary, Finland and Romania. If we add to this loans, the supply of its own weapons, as well as the status of the largest supplier of iron ore for the needs of the German military industry, it turns out that during the entire period of the Second World War, Sweden was intensively arming Nazi Germany.
    The world's best ball bearings of the famous SCF concern, timber, ferroalloys, high-quality steel, cellulose, artificial fiber, machine tools, electrical equipment, tools and sea vessels were also supplied to Germany. Sweden actively supplied Germany with its high-quality iron ore, and gradually Swedish trade with Nazi Germany began to account for up to 90% of all Swedish foreign trade. Moreover, the supply of ore to Germany continued practically throughout the entire period of the USSR war against Nazi Germany, before the defeat of the Third Reich became completely obvious.

    Also:

    On July 9, 1998, the Swedish media published an interim report on the cooperation of Swedish banks with Nazi Germany. It turned out that 60 tons of gold from Germany and from the territories of the countries occupied by the Nazis were transferred to the accounts of the National Bank of Sweden during World War II. In 1949 and 1955. The Swedish State Bank has returned 13 tons of gold stolen by the Nazis from the Central Banks of Belgium and the Netherlands. 649 accounts belonging to Holocaust victims were found in Swedish banks. In general, the Swedish banking sector during the war period grew significantly along with large industrial companies that supplied goods to Germany.

    An interesting view into the character of Sweden....

    Sweden is a PC toilet. If you tell your children not to worship trannies (and eventually pedophiles) you will be prosecuted to
    the fullest extent of the law for child abuse and hate crimes. This is a country where no go zones are denied but grow in size
    every day. A country that prosecutes people for stating obvious truths in social media posts.

    This fits this thread since it underscores the depravity of Uncle Swine-shit.

    During the failed meeting with Chinese officials in Anchorage, Alaska, the Bidet administration tried to stage a public
    humiliation with the attack of the standard tropes. Uighur "genocide", Hong Kong "repression", LGBTXYZ special rights
    denial, "respect" for the environment, and of course the Tibet "occupation" (in this case they actually have some
    validity in the accusation). The Chinese came prepared and responded point by point to the US attack and
    noted that the US has not authority to attack China on behalf of the planet. Of course, the US attack included
    the usual "China is destabilizing the situation" braying when in fact it is the US with its dick waving in the South China
    Sea that is pulling the gunboat "diplomacy" card.

    But the exchange above involved yanqui dirty tricks. Supposedly there was an agreement that individual attendees
    would not take more than 2 minutes to make their statements. The yanquis broke the agreed to terms first by taking
    10 minutes or longer to rant against China. This promoted the Chinese to reply point by point and it took one Chinese
    diplomat 15 minutes. After the meeting the yanquis accused China of breaking the 2 minute limit. Hypocrisy is
    clearly congenital in yanquis. (BTW, the RBC report on this meeting excludes the above details).

    Now we have a suicide bombing in southern China, Guangzhou. What a coincidence. I recall similar coincidences
    in happening in Russia as well. The same Wahabbi excrement was involved in Russia as in China. And these
    Wahabbi "Muslims" are the product of brainwashing by Saudi clerics and their acolytes. Recall that Saudi Arabia
    is a US protectorate and that the USA is allied with the jihadis in Syria (and Central Asia). In the video its noted
    that this may be some disgruntled individual who had a problem with the "regime" like the clown who staged the
    shooting near Lubyanka not too long ago. But in my opinion the modus operandi smells of a radicalized jihadi.
    The timing is just absurd, since it looks like a message to Lavrov who is about to come to China for some serious
    meetings.

    It was not an Uighur. So my speculation is off in terms of the Wahabbi angle. Ostashko did not say it was a Wahhabi drone, but
    it seemed like it would have been one since they have already staged such suicide bombings. I would think it would be easier
    for some local nut case to use a gun to kill his "tormentors" than getting his hands on real explosives (judging from the amount
    of damage). So the case smells of foreign meddling (actual meddling, not election "meddling").

    If there is a cold War II , then it will be very different to cold War I. The USA is a diminishing power. China is rising. Russia has different relationship  ( closer) to Europe.  Even some in USA see this coming. Trump was the first of the few. He may even be elected again. NATO may not exist in the near future.Russia is well to keep it's nuclear detterent. No need for build up of conventional arms race. Russia and  China can pull the rest of Asia and Europe closer together. I think that the American influence will be limited in the future, with support coming from undemocratic failed ethnic states at war with neighbours or dictatorships or anglophones or  protectorates.

    So those with detterent power will survive the violent death spasms of a dying Empire. But those without may not. But even then, I think that environmental collapse, will take care of the rest.

    No, no my friend, Trump was nothing more than the last dying gasp of the actual conservatism in America, in fact he is probly the Last American president.
    The Right thought they were gonna rise again, only to be completely backstabbed by their own party and left for dead.

    Think the fall of Troy, Trump rallying the Trojans pushing back the Socialist Greeks, only to at the final moment, the final push, to be stabbed in the back by all his officers and even his Second-in-command, now the defenses collapse and the city Falls.

    There is not gonna be a second term.
