    I'm starting to think its time to liquidate that cross dressing midget puppet of the Americans aka elensky.
    And for a long time I've been asking why Russia isn't arming groups vs US interests worldwide.

    If he claims to be the "president" he should "claim" to have control over the Nazis.
    Either he admits he doesn't ... or he is responsible for them.
    If he doesn't control them, then he must admit he is not the president.
    So hohols must then act who IS the president.
    Obviously its Mr Hairsniffer Biden sending them to their deaths.
    But that fact needs to be out in the open. That way, Banderastan might crumble a little sooner.

    Zelensky is the product of a corrupt political system, getting rid of him does not fix the system, atm he is a "useful idiot".

    Russia is more interested in disarming US interests worldwide, the best way to do it is to stop using the US dollar.
    As more countries come onboard with this idea, the easier it gets.
    When OPEC finally tell the US "Sorry, we no longer accept $US as payment for oil purchases" that will be a tipping point.

    Re: Ammonia's role in the 'chemical warfare fuss'

    🇬🇧🇺🇦🇹🇷On the situation around the Togliatti-Odessa ammonia pipeline

    On November 19, the grain agreement between Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and the UN was extended for 120 days. One of the conditions for the extension of the deal put forward by the Russian side was the export of domestic ammonia through Odessa.

    ▪The Togliatti-Odessa ammonia pipeline was built in the 1970s to ensure the functioning of the Ukrainian chemical industry and the export of ammonia. In February, deliveries were suspended.

    ▪The final section of the ammonia pipeline is the Odessa Port Plant (OPZ), which has facilities for processing ammonia into nitrogen fertilizer carbamide (urea). In April, the plant was mothballed.

    ▪Ammonia is also widely used in industry and medicine - not only fertilizers are made from it, but also other products.

    Who will earn on the export of ammonia?

    ▪The ammonia pipeline, through which a little more than 10% of the annual output of Russian raw materials is exported, is used by Togliattiazot and Minudobreniya - the latter belongs to Arkady Rotenberg. All profits from supplies go to the Ukrainian company Agro Gas Trading, whose management, with the advent of Vladimir Zelensky to power, received a monopoly on income from the Odessa port plant.

    Who consumes ammonia produced at the Odessa plant?

    ▪According to the annual report of Togliattiazot, the main importers are the countries of Southern Europe and Turkey. The share of fertilizer supplies from Russia to the republic does not exceed 3%, while Russian fertilizers account for about 10% on the Turkish market.

    ▪It is much more profitable for Turkish businesses to buy Russian ammonia instead of ready-made fertilizers and produce the final product from imported raw materials - for this, the domestic market is protected by protective duties, and fertilizer supplies are strictly limited.

    🔻Yesterday, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the need to resume the work of the ammonia pipeline: the authorities are discussing this issue at the UN. It is likely that the West is interested in solving the problem. In Turkey and Southern Europe, provided with gas, it will be possible to establish large-scale production of fertilizers from Russian raw materials - in Europe, in this way, they will be able to make up for the shortage of urea without abandoning the sanctions imposed against the Russian Federation.

    This is an MoA poster exploring just how wrong the US has got Ukraine and perhaps why.

    Lets think back to Iraq in 03, it’s instructive and also worth discussing. Almost nothing went according to plan for the US in 03. After months of open preparation and then a massive bombing campaign, including civilian infrastructure, was used to soften up the Iraqis. Movement was slow in the south. The British strike against Basra was a complete failure. Supplies were planned on everything going just right and nearly failed completely; nobody planned on feeding the civilians so the US had to hijack an oil for food ship.

    The big plan for a second front with the Kurds in the north fizzled because the Kurds didn’t play ball. It was bad enough for embedded journalists all the pulled out of the field and sent to hotels in the rear, given no new information. Franks was about to be fired. The once beaten and sanction depleted Iraqi army was stubbornly resisting.

    But the Bush admin had promised less than a month to defeat Iraq. So there was a mad dash up the center of the country to reach Baghdad. But when the US got there, the government was gone. So they held a photo op with a statue and declared victory. The Iraqi army mostly dissolved into the civilian population and what the US got for its quick media/political victory without actually defeating the Iraqi army in the field after “mission accomplished” was a massive insurgency. It’s been almost 20 years and the US still hasn’t fully won the Iraq war. It’s political goals for the war have been an abject failure (no, the “chaos was the goal” is not reality because the chaos kept US force from being applied elsewhere).

    All this is why the US expected and wanted Russia to replay Iraq. The AFU was excellently well positioned to present an Iraq insurgency on steroids. It was the US that talked up the fall of Kiev in days. That was the best case scenario with outrage, a government in exile (Zelensky would be great at that) and a bloody horrible insurgency for Putin to contend with on top of the sanctions. This is why things are now difficult for NATO. It wasn’t supposed to be like this and now the quagmire is reversed.

    It is possible to run NATO stocks dry because none of those countries have built their militaries for this kind of conflict for two decades. One of the links discusses this. It’s all expeditionary, short and sharp conflicts in NATO planning. Kharkov fit NATO’s style; so it was a success. A Ukrainian insurgency would have fit NATO’s style and likely would have been successful. One could argue that Russia has been most successful so far by going slow, though I wouldn’t argue it was the original plan but a response to NATO going all in. That was stupid on the part of the US. It got caught in the trap it laid for Russia.

    Grabbing lots of real estate and then having to defend it from irregulars of all sorts would indeed have been stupid. Instead the "slow" approach
    has resulted in that Kiev regime meat shuffling to the front line where it is consumed. NATzO planners are too "smart" for their own good.

    Mark Sleboda gets it. This is a war of attrition and the exceptionaist self-congratulating Western Borg collective is poorly equipped to wage ths sort of conflict.

    Russia not playing like US/EU expected? Oh the horror... Razz

    The US doesn't care about Russia winning or loosing. Their target is clearly EU to transform them from competitor to clients.

    I think Russia is quite happy with US attitude. They send weak weapons in very low quantity which doesn't really affect the war, US/EU relation are turning into an economical war (saw this term being already used in mainstream media in west), EU totally weakened.

    Both Russia and US want a long war. Only unhappy are europeans with such war.


    After this war the EU will be on its knees and there could be a big chance that EU doesn't oppose Russia taking the Baltics in exchange of energy supply and help for EU industry that is being completely eaten by the US.

    U-rope should have tried harder to have some sanity and dignity. Instead it chose to wallow in the hate it has had for Russia
    over the last 1000+ years. An example of being so paranoid about your neighbour that you allow yourself to be ass-raped by
    a stranger.

    Our patches! Ukrainian!
    Oh, Ukrainian? OK ... So just give us the rifle ... and your buddy too ... The war is over for you ...
    They were sitting for two days, separated by 20m, chaffing each other, and none of them realized that they chat with the opponent.

    Sad thing is that they have so much in common there was no violence or fight... if the Russians had been American and the Ukrainians had been Taliban the Americans would have opened fire and leveled the forest trying to kill every single one.


    German or US crews would refuse to operate them since it means having kh-31 and kh-15 flying towards them and dying.

    Wont be Kh-15, more like Kh-31, Kh-58M, Kh-25MP or the new Kh-69.

    If it was Kh-15 there would be lots of dead... Kh-15 is a short range attack missile used by strategic and theatre bombers used to blow its way though serious ground and air defences and only carries a nuclear warhead.

    That is why they withdrew it from service.

    You are totally right though, Patriot is a complex system that requires trained operators otherwise it would be a sitting duck and more a missile magnet than defence system.

    And for a long time I've been asking why Russia isn't arming groups vs US interests worldwide.

    When Russia stoops to their level then they just become another west trying to screw the rest of the world of its resources... if Russia just wants to act like the US then they should have just let the US win... it would have been quicker and easier.

    This is about shifting the world from a US centric place driven by them earning more money than they need while everyone else fights over the remaining scraps, to something where everyone can grow and develop and other countries don't need to feel threatened by that, where military gangs don't rule regions, where international law is applied fairly and evenly on everyone and not just those who lack the power to veto it.

    Obviously its Mr Hairsniffer Biden sending them to their deaths.
    But that fact needs to be out in the open. That way, Banderastan might crumble a little sooner.

    Reality is going to be a real bitch and many will not cope well, but the clown will be getting his pieces of eight from those that support him and death threats to not cross those that don't support him... if he ends up leading a government in exile then let them enjoy their western debt burden... if he ends up with a icepick through the brain... the west is more likely to create their own Guano than accept any government the people in the territory of the Ukraine might vote in under Russian "occupation".

    The west is going to cry about this as long as they have cried about the situation in the Kuriles and Crimea and Kaliningrad and many other places where things didn't go their way.

    Zelensky is the product of a corrupt political system, getting rid of him does not fix the system, atm he is a "useful idiot".

    Exactly, if he goes now, he will likely be replaced by something similar or worse like Porochenko... who wanted this conflict.

    Give it a few more months of suffering and all those banned political parties are going to start to look rather more appealing and relevant and lots of people who ran to Russia but also to the west might think peace is the only solution and even neutrality with friendly relations with Russia can be made profitable and comfortable over time, while becoming part of Russia will result in a faster recovery in the next 6 months than they have had under US Stooges for the last 8 years... and actual peace.

    Of course the trials will be interesting too... and all those WWII monuments they are going to be building and incorporation of real history being taught in their schools will be a revelation too.

    Russia is more interested in disarming US interests worldwide, the best way to do it is to stop using the US dollar.
    As more countries come onboard with this idea, the easier it gets.
    When OPEC finally tell the US "Sorry, we no longer accept $US as payment for oil purchases" that will be a tipping point.

    Not just the US dollar but western shipping companies, western insurance for shipping goods, western markets setting prices for goods and taking payments for trades on their markets they didn't do anything for except skim some money from... cutting out the western middle man making a tidy sum for doing very little.

    I was quite wrong. Kalibr flies very low. Here it is less than 50m from the ground.

    It is like a plane on autopilot... it can fly at any altitude you set it to fly at... generally the flight plan will be generated based on locations where things get shot down a lot and where known radar gaps are located so it might fly along a river for a bit at very low altitude but the first 500km of flight might be over friendly territory so flying at medium height at higher speeds than it can reach a lot altitude would save fuel and extend range... way points will be chosen to fly around heavily populated areas to reduce the chance of being shot down or spotted, and where possible targets will be approached from unexpected directions so it might fly around something and hit them from a westerly direction for instance.

    Places with lots of high tension power lines like near power stations means flying low is not safe at all, but most of the time they will fly low.

    After this war the EU will be on its knees and there could be a big chance that EU doesn't oppose Russia taking the Baltics in exchange of energy supply and help for EU industry that is being completely eaten by the US.

    Europes problem is that Russia is looking to the rest of the world... as they commit more and more gas capacity to other countries their capacity to sell to Europe diminishes, and given a choice of whom to sell to if there is competition even outbidding the rest of the world might not be an acceptable option to Russia who might be happy selling China and India energy at a reasonable price so both can boost their usage of clean gas and reduce their use of dirty coal... which should of course free up plenty of coal supplies for Europe to generate all the energy they need.

    U-rope should have tried harder to have some sanity and dignity. Instead it chose to wallow in the hate it has had for Russia
    over the last 1000+ years. An example of being so paranoid about your neighbour that you allow yourself to be ass-raped by
    a stranger.

    They can't even pretend they don't know what the US is doing... they are being more European than the Europeans and expect to be thanked for destroying the production industry in Europe to be moved to the US.

    If you want to see it, here is Scott Ritter giving a pretty fair and impartial analysis of the war. . . . Take it or leave it but its a pretty good summary
