    The Irish have been playing that song since way back when Spain was an empire.

    The moments of hype are fleeting. London exerts control as it always has.

    We could roll a casino dice on the subject tho...

    As for Ritter....well.... lol1

    It was kinda funny how the mob turned on him for a few not long ago after he made some claims... now back to the honeymoon phase again. The desperation is real for affirmation and validation. Think for your own, and you won't need the Scott Ritters/Sakers/Durans/Pepe's/Mr. Bs/ and the rest of the clown car to sell you fairy tales so you can sleep good at night. It's extremely healthy and freeing.

    Clown Elensky & his circus cabinet is working hard for the entertainment of foolish Western audience. They have an entire film crew dedicated to produce Hollywood style action scenes for the propaganda purpose.  

    A failed propaganda video of Ukrops has been circulating on social media sites. They were shooting a scene where Ukrop troops are shown fighting against Russian invaders.

    The man is the best paid comedian on the planet, and in all of history. Russians should be proud that one of your kin own that title. One of the few saving graces of the conflict, twisted perspective as it's.

    It's not his fault the "serious", "bright", "well educated", and "respected politicians" at the Kremlin failed at the wheel in 2014 (and much longer before that). A mockery of suffering is what ensues with clowns at the helm.

    I'm not too sure you got the laughing order correctly...  whether it's the Anglo saxons prodding Russians to kill other Russians and watching the mayhem unfold, throwing as much fuel to the fire as they can or the Kremlin's 6D chess masters engaged in "an existential battle", becoming a resource colony of the birthing "Chinese century"...patent pending Taiwan resolution.

    Call me when the Britts start their own civil war... maybe I'll join you and laugh at them then. Maybe the USA....  Seems to me they locked Europe tight. You can only envy such level of control, even if it has its detrimental cons.

    For the time being... your garbage is just that, garbage.

    I mean if you can call that a success I guess it is

    Personally for me the evisceration of the American empire is a bigger win for Russia

    Then sending some hohols to kingdom come , personally noone in Russia considers it a tragedy anyway

    What is the real tragedy is your compadre Salvador Ramos slaughtering 21 little kids of the same background and watching muricans toil with this daily norm , whether it be Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, Buffalo New York or otherwise

    The world has seen plenty of intra American slaughter and its quite funny to be honest

    Everyone hates each other over there

    So don't toot your own horn

    Actually if I were you, I'd get some heat

    Never know when you'll get shot down in a grocery store, or maybe sitting at red light

    No 6d chess needed to have you clowns culling each other in a fit of rage - no interference needed

    🇷🇺❗Putin made a number of important statements, including on Ukraine, sanctions and the global food crisis:

    ▪Attempts by the West to shift responsibility for food problems to the Russian Federation are ridiculous excuses. Problems in the global food market began in February 2020.
    ▪The acceleration of inflation was associated with the ill-conceived actions of the United States to inject funds into the economy, and not with the actions of the Russian Federation in Ukraine.
    ▪Russia has absolutely nothing to do with the situation with rising gas prices. The short-sighted policy of the European Commission in the field of energy in recent years is to blame for everything.
    ▪New sanctions against the Russian Federation will only worsen the situation on world markets.
    ▪Russia does not prevent the export of Ukrainian grain.
    ▪There are various possibilities for the export of Ukrainian grain from the port of Berdyansk or the simplest one - through Belarus. But then it is necessary to remove sanctions from Minsk.

    Talking about ineptitude

    How does the west blow up its own economy with this sort of efficiency?

    You're grasping at straws and desperate now kiddo. Every single keystroke shows desperation.

    Is that "compadre" association being made due to my supposed Americanism, or American nationality or is it due to my supposed Cuban nationality?

    Do you even know what that word means?

    And here I thought you valued intricacies, and education...

    A native american emigre of central/south america with an American passport (anchor baby probably) has very little in common with your average american of European descent or a Cuban for that matter, which are a mix of white southern european descent (Spain mostly), and/or African descent, + the inter racial mix of those two. Native indians of the Americas are not found in Cuba except for decimals of a percentage, more like an extinct race. There is no "compadre" there were I to identify as either a Cuban (black, white or mixed mulatto) or prototypical American (anglo saxon, germanic, or other indo-european tribe). Native Indians of the America's have more in common with Asians in facial characteristics at the very least than any other race.

    I could be Asian though.... and there is nothing wrong with that. So maybe he's my distant racial compadre. One bad apple doesn't speak for the rising East or the relatively peaceful central/south native americans.

    What else you got bitch boy? Or are you tired yet. Your poor attempts at tribal attacks of the "other" (not Russian, or western Russophile) are pathetic.... even your boy GarryB failed at it in his numerous attempts. Your more archaic attempts will net no less of of the same result.

    The very moment she was passing out cookies on camera, Yunkovych should have immediately expelled her and the American embassy in Kiev.  Could you imagine what would have happened if the Russian or Chinese ambassador had handed out cookes to the 1/6 protestors back in January 2021? Could you even imagine?  Seriously, who the fudge does that?  What normal country does that?  I mean its bizarre that as a diplomat you go out trying to foment insurrection. Oh and Gary, this pic is IMVHO when the road to the current special military operation in Ukraine really started rolling. Before the American state dept got involved Maidan Square was for all intents and purposes a domestic movement against corruption, and honestly I think anyone could respect that even if most of the muscle for it came from neonazis and other right wing extremists, but when the state dept got involved a domestic movement was hijacked and became a tool of American geopolitcal aims and proxy war.

    To me it's of no concern what kind interethnic infighting is going on over there

    Russia doesn't need to do anything for white to kill blacks, For blacks to push Asians in front of trains, Or for rage filled Latinos to gun down their own a la Cruz or Ramos

    That hohol level buffoonery goes on without state banderism or nazism , it's racial war out there

    And we don't need to supply guns either

    You guys have enough ammo, hate, and retardation to check all the boxes

    Without javelins, Switchblades or cookies I might add

    Americans do have all of those problems that's true. Yet, if you think about it they've been a more stable, and conflict free state than Russia (and empire territories) for the last 2 centuries plus least.

    I also hear the Russian muslims and central Asians, the turkish/asian non Slav kind are a problem in Nothern/Western "European" Russia. High profile cases of beatings on busses, beatings of doctors and general hooliganism and crime.

    Seems to me all big countries with a multi ethnic, racial composition face similar social issues stemming from the same source: human nature, and hierarchal social positioning (poverty/wealth spectrum).

    I will agree that adding a gun free culture to the mix is not healthy. That is extremely characteristic of how those burst of violence manifest in the states vs. others.

    What consequences?

    I want to understand the mind of the average Pindo watching this

    Is killing hohols supposed to be some kind of tragedy?

    Is it the ruble rate going to a 7 year high?

    Is it the Gas price being the highest its ever been?

    What is the net loss for Russia here?

    No world cup or Wimbledon?

    To my knowledge Russia did not have Ukraine since 1991 when they declared independence

    To my eyes and correct me if I'm wrong, the addition of Crimea, Zaporizhia, Kherson, Donetsk, Lughansk is a boon not a consequence

    That's why I am not understanding the point your making

    Архангельск, it's not worth arguing with him. Let him continue watching Rachel Madcow, BBC, CNN, etc. He will ride a bicycle in the winter, when he has no fuel, while the house will be heated by coal - if there is enough. Maybe we should send him some cans, because it will be shaggy even with wheat ...

    "Domestic movement against corruption" my foot. It was a US funded effort all the way. Turtles all the way down. Except those people there initially were just useful idiots. Just like Navalny followers. Typical US psyop.
    It isn't corruption if it is funded by their own US billionaires. Then it is the right of private "corporations". Because zombie corporations have the same rights as people. In the meantime these US psyop Soros "OpenSociety" "anti-corruption" demonstrators are supposed to be clean.

    I don't wish bad on him, my comments on being gunned down are honest and frank, and I hope he protects himself from the insanity they are living there

    Imagine a place where you are not living in war

    But simply you could be shot at any moment by some freak who has an Ar15 and a vendetta against society

    I'd rather be in Belgorod , or even Berdyansk tbh

    But what I want to know is how Russian actions today can be seen as an error?

    Yes I can agree Russian actions have been reactive

    But... that's basically the story since 1991 no?

    At what point did Russia ever have the initiative?

    At any time from 1990-2022

    That's what I want to be explained from any observer who claims that Putin messed up or that Russian ineptitude led to this

    I don't understand such a point of view, when the west had the initiative including a 5th column and puppet economy in our country the entire time

    So I want to be explained where Russia went wrong

    Because somehow, it's all going alright

    The first time I recognize this. So the nominal and the PPP method take the american system and the Dollar as base. Otherwise the numbers would change for the US.

    But I don't watch CNN or the BBC....

    To be honest, I'm more exposed to Russian propaganda and "resistance" literature than any other type of literary garbage, certainly what is considered "western kind".

    That is the problem at the core of the dimwitts and drones here. Simple sheeple can't comprehend any other thing.

    You can't have a disproving opinion of Kremlin leadership, political culture and decision making without being an automatic "western sympathizer" or "NATO bootlick"....

    It's the tribal nature of the dimwitt to forcefully box the opposing views into that simple to understand narrow view otherwise their head would explode from the conditioning of the propaganda the other side feeds daily. It's amazing to watch. More so how highly of themselves they belief to be  (projecting to others their adopted opinions which are mostly talking points propaganda borrowed from thought leaders). Special little things. Cognitive dissonance at its finest, and worst.

    The bubble bursts every so often and you can feel the pain with every keystroke. As you hear in Putin's voice when he gets fucked over every now and then and mansplains things to his sheeple base.

    The post history of 95% of this forum pre-conflict is a thing to behold. lol1

    I certainly have not forgotten the rampant idiocy, including of the new "reformed" ones.... mind you, all of them switched gears and talking points so it's a wash at this point. lol1

    Backman wrote:10 days ago Scott Ritter changed his analysis a bit. The video is the long form.

    In short, he says that Russia is killing it in the field, but considering Russia's strategic aims of de-nazification and a neutral Ukraine, taking the Donbass, all of it, and even incorporating it into Russia could still be considered a strategic defeat.

    I don't necessarily disagree. Even if Donbass is clear, Ukraine would be more Nazi than before the war considering the only legal party in the country now is the Nazi party led by Zelensky. And its more Nato than before because the west has poured billions of weapons in.

    This means its more than likely that Putin and the Duma will be constructing the legalisms for a mobilization and a full attack on Kiev in the coming days. The attack wont be in the coming days but the legalisms to do the attack will be visible. So we have to watch for that.

    I don't disagree with Scott on the strategic points. Which is why Russia must mobilize and dissolve the kiev regime.

    Anyway what I do disagree with him is the bullshit about the super duper 50 billion in arms and how this is almost the size of Russia's military budget. This is an absolute crock. Its again the non PPP sharade. Russia is not a USD bloc economy so you have to use PPP. You have to. Its not a choice if you want actual data.

    Russia's defense budget is 170+ million dollars. Almost the same as the UK, France, Germany and Holland combined. So non PPP numbers actually under state the Russian budget by almost 3 times over. Which is why propagandists love it.

    Ritter is a bit behind the curve, I have to say, despite liking him and thinking he is honest in his analysis. Russia has already said they will de-nazify and de-militarize 404, so that is what they will keep doing, once the work in Donbass is done. Ukies woke up one good morning with VDV in Gostomel and have Russians stationed the other side of the Dneper at Nikholaev's doorstep, plus Russia can land on Odessa any time, use Transnistria and all of Belarus up to Brest to reach any point in Ukraine fast and easy, that is the sad (for them) reality ukronazis have been complaining all these years about, they are basically surrounded and very vulnerable to any attack. Of course it is best to grind them in a controlled and safe way until all those forces in the rear have been depleted too than to rush into a bloodbath to take Lvov or something like that. The Kiev Junta will crumble, it just needs time to allow the ongoing process to follow its course.

    - I don't think Russia needs to escalate forces by that much to keep making progress. They just need to avoid overextending themselves and proceed step by step. Kharkov, Zaporizhzhia and Nikolaev are perfectly set up to be the next stages of the operation, allowing to keep a compact front that can be manned with less people and where weapons can be used more effectively on bigger concentrations of enemy troops. But several months will still be needed to freed Donbass, then 404 will be living in another reality and many things can happen, both internal and externally until then:
    > Ukrainian military can decide it is enough and grab power, major rebellions / defections can take place as more and more people become aware they are being cynically sacrificed for the sake of some yankee agenda

Population will grow more and more tired of being sucked dry to keep the war going, brainwashed with nonsense by the MSM and bullied by ukie refugees.

    - Agree that the $50B issue is BS, most of it will never reach Ukraine (it is not even intended for Ukraine) and besides that the inane way MIC and policymaking is run in the West makes any comparison with the Russian budget absurd. Idiots and crooks chosen to loot the West blind do not become genius statesmen overnight and they would not be tolerated by their masters, even if they would

    - Western weapons are not such game changers as Ritter thinks. Excalibur is not a "one shot - one kill" weapon if there is no targeting, life expectancy of the system and crew at the front is measured in hours or days and Russians are covered with (effective) masking, EW and AD. And if it was, their numbers are a tiny fraction of what is needed, while Russians have all force multipliers that allow them to operate a fraction of the ukie forces and still annihilate them inexorably. It is a fallacy to suggest that giving more stones and more meat to an army of cavemen allows them to defeat people with guns, you will only get more cavemen killed. See here:

    “The ratio is one to six”: the DPR brigade commander announced the number of troops of the RF Armed Forces and the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the front

    Ukraine had an army of 300 thousand, now it has begun to mobilize more. And now Russia with its 50 thousand (one against six) goes on the offensive. She goes, does not stand, does not rest. How can you evaluate? Only for five - and just add a plus!

    To be honest, I'm more exposed to Russian propaganda and "resistance" literature than any other type of literary garbage, certainly what is considered "western kind".

    That is the problem at the core of the dimwitts and drones here. Simple sheeple can't comprehend any other thing.

    You can't have a disproving opinion of Kremlin leadership, political culture and decision making without being an automatic "western sympathizer" or "NATO bootlick"....

    It's the tribal nature of the dimwitt to forcefully box the opposing views into that simple to understand narrow view otherwise their head would explode from the conditioning of the propaganda the other side feeds daily. It's amazing to watch. More so how highly of themselves they belief to be  (projecting to others their adopted opinions which are mostly talking points propaganda borrowed from thought leaders). Special little things. Cognitive dissonance at its finest, and worst.

    The bubble bursts every so often and you can feel the pain with every keystroke. As you hear in Putin's voice when he gets fucked over every now and then and mansplains things to his sheeple base.

    That is an easy oversimplification

    Sure you can be disproving, but we don't have a luxury with our back against the wall

    Russia has been on the back foot for a while...

    It's not a surprise that 30 years ago we were in deep shit

    Even as recently as 2018 Deripaska and Prokhorov were still relevant..  despite the best attempts to neuter those goons , they still had a say and their friends in London and NYC and Miami did also  

    Russia was selling for Euros and Dollars , Putin was looking for the best deals to strike, holding a bad hand

    I think you are not giving enough credit to what was done and what he pulled out of the hat with his wittiness and actions

    From Chechnya, Georgia, Maidan, Sanctions, Ukraine, Syria

    It has not been an easy road, and yet Russia prevailed

    So keep your criticism but don't come here to shit on the leadership that has kept us alive and in a good position (based on what a fucked situation we've been in)

    Since 1990

    We had a knife to the throat, and we can't switch the coaching team and staff to experiment right now

    Russia will have a proactive policy

    But these 30 years were an evolving process and one that maybe could have gone different, but given where we are today, I am not complaining, or even wishing  to turn back the clock

    Because if it had gone worse, we would have been in different countries, getting raped by Clinton gang and big capital in US

    So it's a miracle we are even here

    And I attribute it to a bit of luck and God's hand, and Putin as well

    Because honestly we were down and out, but our national bird is a Phoenix

    And to see this shit Is nothing short of rebirth from ashes

    If you want to discuss more PM me, but unless you are going to make constructive and valid posts then don't provoke

    Because you are looking at all this in a skewed way

    I guess you are one of those people who think Putin owns a mansion in the Black Sea and eat up all that 3D rendered nonsense that Navalny pushed out. They also used to say Stalin was incredibly wealthy back then. See the wealth he had when he died.

    In the meantime people like Obama can buy mansions and residences in Hawaii from their speaking circuit after being President. i.e. going on a talk show tour where they are paid a fortune by the corporations they favored while they were in power. And that isn't corruption.

    This is all projection.

    Are ukrainian civilians still using the "Kopriva" app where they take pictures of russian columns and send them to ukrainian soldiers? I read that in areas with a more russophobic population like Chernigov, Kiev and Sumy, ukrainians staged ambushes because of civilians taking such pictures. If this is true, Russia shouldve shut down the internet for ukrainian phones.

    We could roll a casino dice on the subject tho...

    As for Ritter....well.... lol1

    It was kinda funny how the mob turned on him for a few not long ago after he made some claims... now back to the honeymoon phase again. The desperation is real for affirmation and validation. Think for your own, and you won't need the Scott Ritters/Sakers/Durans/Pepe's/Mr. Bs/ and the rest of the clown car to sell you fairy tales so you can sleep good at night. It's extremely healthy and freeing.

    Im thinking on my own F-nuts.

    Its a tragedy that men are being killed. Brainwashed Russian men who call themselves Ukrainian. But Russia could only dream of getting presented with a legitimate opportunity to take the Black sea coast. They couldn't have invented a reason no matter how hard they tried. Now Russia will be able to make the grain OPEC that it always wanted. And that's just the start.

    Just imagine the US actually negotiated in December 2021. Bullet dodged.

    Can you tell me how Russia has gotten weaker and will be weaker in the future because of this war ?
