A Statesman Appears

VV Putin, statesman.

It is not to be expected at all that a US President, or any President for that matter, be a statesman. However, those Presidents who are statesmen are the best of the Presidents.
I am not sure which US Presidents were statesmen. JFK certainly was, as Roosevelt. Beyond that, I am just not sure. Of course George Bush Jr. was not a statesman. Are you kidding?
A statesman can also be a diplomat or an administration official, particularly a high ranking one. Henry Kissinger, as much as I feel he is The Evil One himself, was indeed a statesman.
One thing I will agree with Obama’s critics is that Barack is not a statesman. But he doesn’t have to be. A President is only as good as his advisors. And Barack’s advisors are simply awful. When a monster like Kissinger and Brezhinski make more sense than you do, that is really saying something bad. That’s like being worse than the Devil Himself. If Barack is worse than the Devil Himself, it is not because he is evil. It is because he is incompetent. Many Presidents are fairly incompetent, but if a President is like that, he should at least have some excellent advisors and a good relationship with the Pentagon and the intelligence branch. Barack has neither.
VV Putin, whatever you think of him, is definitely a statesman. And he proves that once again in this great interview.
I love the part where the reporter says, “The EU just put increased sanctions on Russia today!”
Putin cocks his head, looks confused, and says, “Really?”
Classic stuff.

Hail Mary!

A Hail Mary is a football play in which a losing team, just as the clock runs out, tries to tie or win the game in one desperate move. After the ball is hiked, all offensive team members except for the offensive linemen run as fast as they can towards the end zone and most of the defense runs there also to try to intercept or block the ball. Usually it doesn’t work as the ball is usually intercepted by the defense or fumbled by the quarterback as some defensive lineman may stay online in order to try to tackle the quarterback.
However, sometimes it just works. When it does, it is one of the most exciting plays in football.

How the East Was Won – The Destruction of Eastern Europe by the US and its Allies

We are pleased to publish this first testimony of a francophone reader of vineyardsaker. Filo is of Yugoslavian origin. He emigrated to the West in the 70’s, and tells us of his disillusionment on the Western model as well as that of an entire people.

1989, The Year the West Did Everything Wrong

by Filo

I was born a long time ago, in a country that was said to be situated between two blocks: that of the East and that of the West. A nonaligned country. Above all, an untroubled and peaceful country. I was born and lived there the first twenty years of my life. Enough for me to be able to perceive and understand the life of my country, engage in my studies and in my first experiences.
As early as 1960, socialist Yugoslavia was forced by the West and the IMF to open itself to a market economy and to start making economic reforms. Poorly prepared and ill-protected, state companies rapidly went into an economic crisis. Mass unemployment appeared. In short, we became easy prey, exploitable at will. The country was invaded by entrepreneurs and businessmen from Germany, Austria, Netherlands, and Switzerland, all attracted by low-cost manpower.
Many Yugoslavians became “gastarbeiters”, immigrant workers. When this situation reached its apex, there were in the West up to 2.5 million Yugoslavian workers according to estimates.
In 1970, I was among those who followed this course. I landed in the middle of an economic boom. I remember, my eyes wide open, being astonished by all of these ostentatious signs of wealth, by the presence of banks everywhere.
Although I was not born in capitalism, a question worried me: How can all of these banks be profitable? I finally understood much later. I will not say more about it now because I would like to keep that topic for another article.
Inevitably, I compared this new world I was discovering to the world I had just left. I was first struck by the amount of falsehood and manipulation in the written or broadcast media. These media were full of glorification of the Western society, presented as being superior in every aspect. The others, the Eastern countries, were systematically criticized and slandered. Yugoslavia often was simply lumped together with the other countries of the Eastern Bloc. I had just discovered that the media of my country were much more objective, more moderate, less dishonest, and overall more democratic.

The Period of Illusions

The year 1989, right after the Berlin wall had fallen, was meant to be the Year Zero for the whole of mankind. At least, that was what we thought at the time. A new start of a world without wars, without poverty. A world of happiness for all, in which we were finally going to live together. No more divisions or hostility, no longer this imminent fear of a forthcoming war.
In the East, they believed in it so much that, led by illusions, they began to dream with their eyes wide open of a new world of coexistence and sharing.
They imagined and persuaded themselves that the Western World was a world suspended between earth and sky. A myth that had suddenly become touchable, within hand’s reach.
They were probably in a state of mind similar to that of the Amerindians at the beginning of the conquest of the Far West; very naive. Truly ingenuous.
Then, history did nothing else but repeat itself. Because history always repeats itself. Only the context changes.
Too bad the West did not understand, did not want to seize such historical opportunity to open itself and welcome, in full frankness and mutual respect, this world from the East that came peacefully seeking a reciprocal coexistence.

Lies and Mental Aberrations

Since the end of World War II, Western propaganda, particularly the American variety, has never ceased to aim at the East a quasi-obsessional hammering of idyllic messages and images of a Western World bathing into perfect happiness.
Applied equally in the West, this propaganda was mixed with images and stories of the world behind the “iron curtain”, the reality of which was utterly distorted and darkened.
The goal was to create (and they succeeded) what was later called the “American leadership”. To define it, I offer to define “leadership” as a whole set of illusions and mental aberrations about the existence of a world to which everyone would like to belong. In reality, it is a world that does not exist and never existed. This world is also called « “The American Dream”.
In short, a game of fools. A fabric of lies in which we believed. Still today, it has become clear that the reality of yesterday and that of today are a permanent fabric of lies.
Americans in particular live in a permanent lie and have since the creation of their country. It started with the myth of the Far West put into images by Hollywood in an idyllic manner. The reality is entirely different and has been twisted around. Twenty million American Indians at the arrival of European settlers at the beginning of the conquest; at the end, less than a century later, only 60,000 were left. It is the largest genocide in human history. To date, no condemnation. The truth barely transpires today.
Still, the Western world is entirely used to the sleep-inducing image of “the American friend” wrapped into the aura of “the savior the Free World”.
A friend who, according to the legend, first came to save Europe and the world during the First World War. What a blessing!
And who returned again, during the Second World War. The American savior succeeded in stopping the evil Soviets at “Checkpoint Charlie.” The whole Western world barely dodged a disaster. Whew!
At this checkpoint, the Americans and their European lackeys tried to create a myth to go along with the Hollywood sauce. Big kitsch, yes!
At the beginning of this month of June 2014, during the commemoration of the Normandy landings, I was amazed to see how Americans continue to falsify history and blatantly lie. With the help of European cowards of course.
To maintain a permanent psychosis, the Americans were threatening and provocative, as much towards their opponents as towards their own people and the population of the Allies. Such a behavior caused similar reactions among their opponents until the introduction on both sides of a true paranoia.
I believe that the Soviet intervention in Hungary in 1956, the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961, and the crash of the “Prague Spring” in 1968 are direct consequences of this escalation of paranoia between the two Blocs. The Americans can be credited for the direct initiative of this escalation.
One day we will know the truth about this period known as the “Cold War.” We even have a duty to know the truth and the whole truth.
It is important to be reminded that “walls” are first and foremost within our own minds. But, regarding the other Wall that fell in 1989, it is clear that it is still there in the minds of today’s Western policymakers. It is not yet destroyed. This is especially the case with regard to the Americans, subject to a total mental aberration.

Back to Reason: Four Examples

Unfortunately, we were bound to quickly become disillusioned and understand that we would not enter into a new era of peace and prosperity. It was all lies and promises from the West. Their intentions were far from sincere and honest, and they never intended to deal with us as equals. Their only endgame was as Western conqueror, triumphant and vengeful. Wishing to enslave us in order to better exploit us. For them, we were only consumers of their capitalist products; a potential market, and nothing more.
To support and confirm my statements, I offer four examples among many others:

  1. In our “liberated” countries, Western manufacturers implemented a dairy and food industry supplanting what was already there, regardless of the existing agricultural environment. The domino effect was instantaneous, and the farmers of these countries were ruined.
  2. We were discredited and treated as “sheep to shear” in favor of the capitalist banking and its usurious system. Putting their hands in the banks of the conquered countries, the “banksters” have imposed their methods and systems: Western-type mortgages, but with interest rates sometimes up to five times higher than those of West. Self-authorized robbery, yes! Especially because they were loans in euros, Swiss francs or dollars, modeled on the fluctuation of exchange rates. The destructive effect was guaranteed within a year after the loans were made. Result: a lot of ruined people and exorbitant suicide rates.
  3. The Westerners also robbed us of all of the wealth and raw materials in our soils. They systematically bought our raw materials at a fraction of their market value, often bribing local potentates to acquire both the mines and the factories that reprocessed these raw materials. In return, they gave us vague promises of investments and employment for the local population which never arrived.
  4. More directly, they sent an army of occupation. Example of such a deceit: Kosovo and “Bondsteel”, 40,000 m2, the largest U.S. base ever built in Europe. In 1999, the U.S. imposed on a puppet government in Pristina a 99 year lease, where the subsoil is rich in mercury, silver and lead. I am convinced that Americans began looting it immediately. The day they leave, there will be nothing left in the subsoil but gaping holes. The American army also uses this base as one of their secret prisons.

After blowing in like a hurricane, the Westerners triggered a tsunami effect.

Western Arrogance

These Western acts of triumphal conquerors were particularly stupid. We were open to them, and we wanted to learn from them, but also we wanted to pass on our own knowledge. In the field of culture, we could have had a very rich exchange: for us culture has always been very important, and we take great care of it. Contrary to this, we were treated with a wave of violence, spite and humiliation.
Curiously, I find some similarities between these events and those that occurred at the time of the Mayan and Aztec civilizations, when savage conquistadors looted and destroyed civilizations that were far more advanced than their own.
I am deeply convinced that the West in this year 1989 did not understand what had just happened. Together we could have built a new world, instead of just destroying what already existed. The confidence that was then lost will never be regained.

In the Year 1989, Westerners Blew It!

For example, the Germans believed in the coming of a 4th Reich. Genscher, at the time Minister of Foreign Affairs and former a SS officer, began to secretly visit the former Axis countries. He was forcibly expelled from the Baltic countries by the Soviets.
Mitterrand’s France was first opposed to German reunification. Backed as usual by the U.S., the UK was waiting for a signal from the Americans. The U.S. acted as if they understood everything; but they mainly pretended they did. They immediately applied (once more) their “Shock Doctrine”- immediate gains for sure, but very stupid in the mid to long term.

Those Who Saw Through It All

I think the only ones who got it all in 1989 were the Russians. Not the Russia of Mikhail Gorbachev and his entourage, but the Russians in the background, the strategists who acted immediately and started to create today’s Russia. They understood that German unification would be, at least for the next twenty years, like slamming an economic brake on the new reunified Germany and by extension on the Western economy, and that this length of time would enable a modernizing Russia to recover economically and militarily.
Today one must admit that they were visionaries who were absolutely right.
The stupidity and greed of Westerners in general and Americans in particular have led to where we are now, a dead end without alternative.
Today the West has lost its hegemony over the world. The failure of its policy since 1989 is complete!
Recent events such as those in Syria demonstrate this well.

The effects of this global deception

“At the time, I was young, very naive and very stupid, and I sincerely believed that the Soviet Union was a deadly threat to Western Europe and that the only thing that stood between them, the evil Communists, and we, the Free World, was the military power of NATO,” the Saker stressed in a text published in March 2014 [1].

How true is this sentence of the Saker’s. Unfortunately we were young and naive, our naivete bordering on stupidity. Especially since the American style has always been the same – simple, too simple, downright simplistic.

The End of the USSR

The Russians are a nation of spontaneously and naturally friendly people; they voluntarily dropped “the wall” thanks to Mikhail Gorbachev’s naivety. Although, as regards the naivete of Gorbachev, head of the USSR from 1985-91, there remain some doubts to this day. According to the latest news, an inquest has just started in Moscow to determine whether the fall of the USSR was simple naivete or a case of high treason.
The only result produced by his “perestroika” (reconstruction) was an economic, military and political weakening of the USSR and its subsequent disintegration. The ruble was became worthless and people started throwing rubles out of their windows in disgust. In spite of all this, even today, he says he is satisfied with what he did.
In 1990, he received the Nobel Peace Prize. Later, with the collapse of the USSR, it was rumored that the Prize was a reward given to Gorbachev by the Americans for “letting the fox into the hen house.”
Then, another strike of bad luck for the Russians hit. Either a real string of bad luck, or the result of a large-scale corruption: the arrival of Boris Yeltsin. Notorious drunkard, yes. For eight years, Russia had an open door to all possible abuses and looting. Russia saw the appearance of vultures nicknamed “oligarchs.” Enriched overnight, they became billionaires. Some of the best known among them: Khodorovsky, Abramovich, Berezowsky, Navalny, etc. A real scourge for Russia.
Boris Yeltsin himself considerably benefited from the situation. In Switzerland, he has been investigated for corruption. He presumably received bribes from a civil engineering company in Tessin, led by an Albanian who was mysteriously contracted to renovate the Kremlin.
During his reign, privatizations prevailed. All that could be privatized and sold cheaply went to either oligarchs or foreigners, in particular Americans. Hence, Americans treated themselves to buying a military industrial complex in the north of Russia. Immediately after this purchase, they froze all of the activities with the company so as to harm the Russians. With Boris Yeltsin, a chronic alcoholic, Russia became the laughingstock of the West. Bill Clinton, at that time the U.S. president, was accustomed, at each meeting with Yeltsin, to laugh himself to tears. Forced but triumphant laugh of course!
Russia, a great heroic nation, saw its dignity trampled. Westerners, Americans in particular, stupid and vengeful, behaved like bulls in a china shop: looting, humiliation, and harassment of all kinds ruled the day, both towards Russia and towards other so-called Communist countries.

The Ceausescu Trial in Romania

Coup in Romania. Sloppy and expeditious trial of the Ceausescu couple. Death sentence and immediate execution of the couple. Judgment by two judges who were taken by force to an improvised courtroom site that looked like a grade school classroom.
Shortly after the trial, the two judges committed suicide.

The Destruction of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia

Now, here is the height of Western stupidity: the destruction of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, under the false pretext that the people who composed it no longer wanted to live together. A pretext as cowardly as it is deceitful. Witness of it is the fact that it took Westerners almost twenty years to destroy it (from 1991-2006). A great and beautiful country, a Europe in miniature. A country of 24 million inhabitants and a territory of nearly 260,000 square kilometers (half of France). A sweet mixing of populations, cultures, and religions. An incredible diversity of cultures, arts and foods.
During the Cold War, the country had perfectly fulfilled its buffer role between East and West. Unfortunately the West had ideas of conquest and domination. I’m sure that the West had always and only ever wanted to take advantage of the Yugoslav position between the two Blocs, and that’s all. As disposable as a Kleenex, discarded once it has served.
Thrown out to the dogs of Western wars, all for more dough for their arm dealers.

Dough, the Only Real Western Value!

At the end of the Cold War, the old demons awoke. First, among the Germans and the Austrians (memories of 1st and 2nd World Wars). But also at the Vatican, who saw an opportunity to settle disputes with the Orthodox Church. Westerners played on the antagonisms that were unique to this land in order to destroy it.
Such an act is cowardly, criminal and stupid, and it caused a lot of suffering, hundreds of thousands of deaths and as much destruction.
Remember that in a house there are walls that are said to be load-bearing. One should never touch them, because of the risk of seeing the house collapse. Yugoslavia, for Europe in any case, was one of those bearing walls. And our stupid Western leaders destroyed it.
Since then, the house has kept cracking and threatening to collapse.
I feel that the destruction of this country will be fatal to the destroyers and that the Yugoslavian national anthem might as well be the Western funeral song. In the case of Yugoslavia, the West has shown a staggering political illiteracy and a stunning cultural ignorance.

And What About Russia in All This?

The Russians said, “Never again!” And they kept their word.
Once Yeltsin was thrown in the dumpster of history, the Russians chose the best among them.
VV Putin. A president and a very talented and intelligent politician. Someone who holds life principles which he applies. In less than 15 years, he managed to return glory and power to Russia. Today, not only is his country no longer the laughingstock of the West, but on the contrary, Russia has become a  major geopolitical actor on the world stage. On the military level, its role is just as important. The Russians have caught up and even surpassed the Americans in this area. NATO has found a Russian opponent who managed to halt its progression towards the east. The lying behavior of Westerners in the face of Russia is now being turned against them.

“The day the sun will rise above Russia, NATO will melt,” Slobodan Milosevic (former President of Serbia) said.

Milosevic “committed suicide” in 2006 at the hand of his jailers in the prison of the ICC in The Hague. According to British media, his trial was moving inexorably towards a nonsuit, that is a dismissal of charges.

And Finally, What About the West in All This?

In 1989, a Russian visionary declared: “Communism and capitalism are the heads and tails of the same coin. Now we let down our communism. How long after that, do you think your capitalism will hold?”

Today, results agree entirely with him.

Conclusion

Forty-four years have passed since my arrival in the West. I am a full citizen of my adopted country (Switzerland). From the beginning, I had the desire and made the effort to integrate into this country. But I always refused to assimilate.
Since the beginning, I was aware of the benefits of having been born and raised in another country, another political system, before arriving here. I have always taken advantage of this asset and used it in every opportunity that presented itself. I especially used it to understand and analyze some features and paradoxes of the West.
For example, very quickly, I had to admit the evidence that Westerners were viscerally anti-Communists, including towards such rather tempered form of that of Yugoslavian Communism, which was quite diluted from its original form.
For years I asked myself why.
A paradox that I wanted to elucidate at all costs. And I finally understood.
It’s huge, because in reality it is the keystone of the West itself. The cause is capitalism itself. Since its beginning, by its very definition, it is an economic concept that is not viable. Therefore, it was doomed to fail from the beginning.
The reasons and causes of its inevitable failure I will address in my next article.

Slaughter Threatens to Slow Down – America to the Rescue!

Just when you think Israel isn’t slaughtering enough people or flattening enough homes, schools and hospitals, here comes the wonderful United States, the greatest country on Earth (TR) rushing to the rescue with lots of stuff that blows up so the Jews can demolish more shit and massacre more people.
Whew! Just in the nick of time! That was close. Dodged a bullet on that one!
For a minute there, I thought Israel would have to stop slaughtering people. (Wipes brow).
USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!
We’re number 1! We’re number 1! We’re number 1! We’re number 1! We’re number 1! We’re number 1! We’re number 1! We’re number 1! We’re number 1!

Two Americans Infected with the Ebola Virus!

Two American health care workers, a physician and another volunteer, have become infected with the Ebola virus while working with Ebola patients in Liberia. The physician, D. Kent Brantly, is in very serious but stable condition, and the woman, Nancy Writebol, is in serious but stable condition. For a lot of conditions such as war wounds, serious condition is often something you will survive. But for Ebola, serious to very serious condition is quite grave because it is a bird of a different feather altogether.
Ebola has a mortality rate of up to 90%, but the chances of surviving are higher if the disease is caught early. They are not the first Americans to come down with Ebola. The first American to come down with the disease is already dead.
The recent Ebola epidemic has hit Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. It has killed 672 people so far, making it the deadliest Ebola outbreak so far. One of Liberia’s top physicians recently died of the disease. Ebola is harbored by some sort of an animal, possibly a bat or rodent. To date, no animal carrier or reservoir for Ebola has yet been found.
Destruction of jungle and especially the killing of large fauna, much of which has already been exterminated in West Africa for something disgusting called “bush meat,” has the effect of radically increasing rodent populations in disturbed habitat in which megafauna have been removed. Man’s encroachment into the jungles of Africa and especially the disturbance of intact jungle habitat and ecosystems is thought to play the most important role in the emergence of these new diseases.
For instance, HIV jumped from the chimpanzee SIV virus to humans, in turn transforming itself to HIV, via the stupid practice of slaughtering monkeys and apes for bush meat. In butchering up bush meat from these animals, bush meat hunters invariable get monkey or ape blood all over their hands and arms at the very least. It was in this matte that HIV moved into the human population.

Ukraine Sitrep July 29, 2014

Not sure what sort of sense you can make out of all of this, but make what you will of it. I will also include a map of the area, but it is all in Russian, so it is hard to figure out. Suffice to say that whatever you are reading in the MSM about huge Ukrainian Nazi victories is just not true. It is a fact that the Nazis have gone on a huge offensive in this area. This is very dangerous for the self-defense forces as they are outmanned 2-1 and also heavily outgunned. However, the good news is that for the most part, the offensive has not achieved its objectives.
The area around Torez where the jet went down in still up for grabs. The Nazis are still surrounded at the Lugansk Airport where they have been encircled for some time now. The main objective of this offensive is to cut through the very heart of the self-defense forces’ territory, cutting off Lugansk from Donetsk. Another goal is the encirclement of Donetsk. As you can see, the Nazis do have Donetsk partly encircled and it is possible that they may be able to surround the city.
The self-defense forces continue to control much of the border with Russia, and yes they are resupplied via that route. Resupplied with precisely what I am not sure, but for sure they get humanitarian aid, medicine, food and uniforms. They probably get weaponry too but this has not yet been proven. If if they do get weaponry, we do not know how much and what kind. All in all, things are neither good or bad for the self-defense forces.
The Nazis are on the offensive, but the major goals of the offensive have not been reached and the Nazis have had to stop far short of their goals. However, the Nazis have attacked pretty far into self-defense forces’ territory and they have taken at least one major town in the north.

LPR and DPR Military Briefings, July 28, 2014

ORDER of the Commander-in-Chief of the Donetsk People’s Republic Militia
July 27, 2014, in the City of Donetsk

With respect to the introduction of measures to be applied to the voluntarily surrendering servicemen of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
Recently, we have been observing a sharp increase in the number of servicemen within the ranks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces unwilling to continue fighting a fratricidal war against their own people and refusing to obey the criminal orders of their command.
Despite being subjected to various types of punishment by their commanders and to violent duress by the Nazis, all the way up to extrajudicial executions, such servicemen, nevertheless, do not surrender to the forces of the DPR Militia, fearful of being subjected to repressions by the latter. Guided by considerations of humanity in the name of stopping the bloodshed and saving the lives of Ukrainian servicemen, who were forcibly sent into the area of the fratricidal war,
I HEREBY ORDER:
All the commanders and the fighters of the forces of the DPR Militia not to open fire on groups or individual servicemen of the Ukrainian Armed Forces that have raised a white flag or signified their intention to surrender in another manner. After disarmament and inspection to ensure that they carry no weapons, such persons are to be permitted through the battle ranks of the Militia and concentrated in special collection points for further transportation to the deep rear under guard. Those persons are to be assigned the status of POW [Prisoners of War].
In accordance with the Geneva Conventions “Rules of Conducting Warfare”, and the additional protocols thereto, such persons shall be provided with such nutrition and medical assistance as may be required. The use of executions, torture and humiliation in relation to them is prohibited. Any contravention of this part is considered to be a military offense and shall be punishable in accordance with the Laws of Wartime.
There shall be a formal accounting of all the above-noted persons and information regarding them shall be sent to the Staff of the DPR Militia for the determination of their future location in accordance with three schemes that are based on personal choice. Persons that voluntarily lay down arms and surrender to the forces of the DPR Militia and that have not committed grave crimes in the course of the hostilities on the territory of Novorossiya may choose:
to return to their families in Ukraine;
to join the ranks of the DPR Militia; and,
to be sent to the territory of Russia as a temporarily interned person (an option – as a refugee).
Minister of Defence
Commander of the Militia
Of the Donetsk People’s Republic
Colonel I.I. Strelkov
00:55 – July 28, 2014 – Overview of the Military Situation
In Shakhtersk, the battles are continuing at this time (00:55 MSK), there is shelling, artillery strikes are being conducted also against Gorlovka, and Gorlovka was also hit with an airstrike today. So far, there is little information from the locations of battles.
In Donetsk, high tensions persist; in the second half of the day the Junta conducted strikes using Uragan MLRS from Elenovka. Battles occurred in the area of the airport; in the evening, a column of smoke was rising above it.
Ukies continue to block the work of the OSCE monitors and are preventing them from traveling to the site of the crash of the Malaysian Boeing.
While on the Lugansk front its has been relatively quiet (without taking into account the constant artillery shelling in the course of the night), then the night on the Donetsk front is expected to be far from calm.
And for the nightcap, for better sleep – our forces shot down a Su aircraft over Antratsit. And so we hope that, despite everything, the night in Donetsk will be calmer than the last several days.
July 28, 2014 – Briefing from the Staff of Aleksey Mozgovoi for July 25-27
Our “ghosts” are again at work. After the withdrawal of the units from the closing ring of encirclement, among the personnel of the battalion and of separate units of the Militia certain measures were taken aimed at reforming our troops and changing the tactics and the performance quality of the operations aimed at eliminating the forces of the enemy.
July 25th – Fighting near Lomovatovka – a column of the enemy that was moving in the direction of Bryanka was stopped using the forces of one of our squads. Three BTR’s, a tank and several Ural trucks with enemy troops were unable to break through a defense barrier organized by 6 men. Ukies were forced to retreat …
July 26th – Through the joint efforts of the mortar crews of our battalion and the artillery of the Cossack hundred, an area of enemy fortifications near Pervomaisk was destroyed.
Apart from that, over the past two days, the following was destroyed on the Pervomaisk front: transportation trucks – 2 Urals and 1 GAZ-66; armored vehicles – 4 BMP’s and 2 tanks; and an ammunition depot.
With respect to Komissarovka – one tank, 3 BMP’s and 1 Ural truck were destroyed.
Overall, the enemy suffered manpower losses of over 100 men. Our losses constitute 2 lightly wounded, who have refused to leave their positions.
July 28, 2014 – Information from the Media Agency ANNA-News
It is July 27-28, and the battle for Shakhtersk continues.
Fighting continued all night and, as of 10:00 on July 28 was still ongoing. In the 8th district there is no telephone service or electricity; the battles are being fought in the area of the 12th and the 15th mines. The militiamen are spread out around the city and are firing at the enemy; the strikes are being conducted using tanks and automatic rifles.
On July 27, a maneuverable armored group of the enemy attacked the city of Shakhtersk in the deep rear of the DPR army. Heavy clashes began on the outskirts of the city. While the miner units of the DPR army were repelling the attack, the staff of the Militia urgently sent reinforcements from the side of Krasniy Luch and from other directions toward Torez and, from there, to Shakhtersk.
The city was entered by tanks, BMP’s, Grad MLRS, trucks, minivans, and light vehicles transporting fighters of the DPR Army. Among them was one of Igor Strelkov’s main assault units – the special purpose, Spetsnaz Battalion “Kalmius”. Having dispersed, they entered into battle with the Kiev occupation forces.
Civil defense sirens were sounded in Shakhtersk, and several mobile communication providers ceased operations. The streets emptied. There was heavy fighting on the outskirts of the city; powerful blasts from artillery and tank fire could be heard. There were also the sounds of automatic weapons.
In Shakhtersk, there are fierce street battles between the Militia and the Nazi-guard.
Columns of armored vehicles were moving from various sides on the outskirts of the city; eyewitness told us that lots hardware had passed through Stashovka.
A particularly heavy battle occurred in the area of the Militia’s positions near the 20th mine, as a result of which several houses burned down and enemy hardware was destroyed.
At the turn toward Torez, on the outskirts of Zhuravlyovka, there were intense tank battles, and short bursts of automatic weapons’ fire sounded constantly.
Some time following the arrival of the reinforcements, the enemy started to retreat.
As a result of the battle at the DPR positions near the 20th mine, the Ukrainian armored vehicles that remained operational retreated, together with the infantry, toward Ol’khovchik. Have sustained manpower and military hardware losses, the enemy was expecting fire to come from any private housing. National Guard would aim their weapons at every fence. Ukrainian flags were taken off their armored vehicles and hidden.
Having gained a foothold in Ol’chovchik, near Polevaya Street, the Junta soldiers started to dig trenches near the forest plantation not far from the 15th mine.
In the morning of July 28, he clashes continued.
At approximately 02:00 (MSK), a new battle commenced near Rassypnaya, the fire is coming from tanks and automatic weapons.
The decisive moments of the battle for Donbass have arrived.
Recall that Shakhtersk is located on the second line of communications between Lugansk and Donetsk, and its loss could have catastrophic consequences for the defenders of Novorossiya. The decisive minutes of the battle for Donbass have arrived.
The essence of what is happening is that the Ukrainian military has begun a long-planned operation involving simultaneous strikes on converging directions from the south and from the north, bypassing Donetsk, in order to create a large Donetsk cauldron. From the south they are attacking the Shakhtersk-Torez area. From the north they are attacking Gorlovka and Debaltsevo. Diversionary attacks are being made on Pervomaisk and Donetsk.
The goal is to cut off the lines of communications and to close the ring of encirclement in Enakievo. This is the very scenario that Igor Strelkov had warned us about. And it is precisely this tactic that explains the sacrifice of the punitive forces in the Southern Cauldron. Dying as cannon fodder, the hundreds of conscripts nevertheless distract the forces of the Militia.
As they are usually wont to do, the Ukrainian side has already reported about a fantastically successful operation. According to their statements, Shakhtersk has already been taken and purged of militiamen. Allegedly, they are simultaneously attacking Debaltsevo, Torez, and Snezhnoye, and hoisting their flags everywhere, all the while moving around mechanized columns and hordes of tanks.
12:02 – July 28, 2014 – Information from the Media Agency “Novorossiya”
There was an airstrike on Shakhtersk; enemy aircraft are in the air over the city.
Ground attack jets appeared over Shakhtersk. The Militia met them with MANPAD fire; however, the aircraft were able to escape being hit by deploying heat traps. After then, one of the ground attack craft conducted an airstrike presumably in the area of the 20th mine.
11:57 – July 28, 2014 – Information from the Media Agency “Novorossiya”
In Donetsk, following a night of shelling, there are again casualties among the civilians.
Once again there again was fighting in Donetsk in the night of July 27-28. Explosions and shooting could be heard in all areas of the city. The private housing sector of the Kuybyshevskiy district, within the perimeter formed by the Stratonavtov, Marshala Zhukova, and Artyomovskaya streets, became the epicenter of the artillery shelling. Private housing was completely destroyed at the following addresses: 64 Kovalko St., 69 Gradostroiteley St., 19 Velichkina St. As well, in the garage cooperative “Zenit”, located at 3 Shakhterskaya Slava St., 7 metallic garages were destroyed. Apart from that, electrical lines and the gas pipeline were damaged.
As a result of the fighting that occurred at night, 8 civilians were harmed, of whom 3 were mortally wounded.
As of 09:30, explosions again can be heard in the city. This is being reported by the residents of the Proletarskiy and the Budennovskiy districts.
Today in Donetsk, communal services and emergency crews are working. Public transport appeared on the city motorways.
July 28, 2014 – Information from the DPR Press-Center
Over the past day, fierce battles have been continuing in the area of Dmitrovka. This is being reported by the special correspondent of the Committee for Social Communication (KCK).
The DPR Army has withdrawn to the neighboring Pavlovka; the forces of the sides are unequal. The militiamen were forced to retreat under massive mortar fire. A group of 20 reconnaissance volunteers stayed behind in Dmitrovka. At this moment, there is no communications with them.
According to operational information, the Ukrainian military units under the command of the Praviy Sector leader, Dmitriy Yarosh, are digging in near Dmitrovka and Marinovka. According to the direct participants of the battles, if they are stopped, the border with the Russian Federation will be under DPR control, and, therefore, it is advisable not to retreat, but to prepare a massive attack.
11:40 – July 28, 2014 – Briefing from the Staff of the DPR Militia
The enemy was attempting to advance in order to cut off the Militia, and it was partially successful because the offensive was large-scale in nature. However, despite the overwhelming forces of the enemy, the Militia was able to repel the attack. To the east of Shakhtersk the enemy sustained colossal losses.
July 28, 2014 – Information from Journalists
Last night, another attempt by the punitive forces to break through in the vicinity of the Lugansk airport was registered. It was repelled. Those that could returned to the airport.
July 28, 2014 – Military Situation Overview from Militiaman Prokhorov
The fighting continues – at 09:40 (MSK), a skirmish was ongoing in the area of Rassypnoye (near Torez).
In Shakhtersk, skirmishes are also continuing; there was a battle in the area of the 7th and the 8th districts of Shakhtersk. Fighting also continues on the outskirts of Snezhnoye.
In the area of the Saur-Mogila, a heavy battle was occurring. By the way, DPR reinforcements have arrived in Torez. Everything also is in order in Snezhnoye, so the danger to Saur-Mogila has been neutralized.
In Pervomaisk, the punitive forces have entered onto the territory of the city (in the area of the school near the Novaya road).
The situation in the occupied territories is of interest. We received information that yesterday, at approximately 23:00, a checkpoint of the Nazi-scum in the vicinity of the Golubiye Lakes (near Seversk) was shelled using ATGM or RPG, following which Ukies pummeled the forest from the mountain using Grad missiles.
11:31 (MSK) – With respect to Shakhtersk, we were informed that 2 Ukies Su aircraft tried to bomb the city, but were chased away with MANPAD salvos.
With respect to Donetsk – the city is not surrounded.
You will laugh, but the Ukrainian command has no idea what positions their soldiers occupy or in what condition their units are. For example, yesterday 2 Ukies tanks stopped near the Yasinovatovskiy overpass in Donetsk. They stayed there several hours until the locals (who emerged from the cellars) asked them: “What is it that you are doing here, in the rear of the DPR troops?” (and at the same time ripped off everything that they could from the tanks). Following this, Ukies quickly faded away, running before they could get into trouble.
And this happens where things are more or less in order. As for what is happening in the “intestine” – this the Ukie command finds out from the relatives that get calls from the besieged troops. For instance, the flight of the 75 Nikolayevka paratroopers was a complete surprise for the ATO staff. Same with yesterday’s gang fight in the city of Shchastye between the Alpha unit and the mercenary Battalion Aidar (with the eventual participation of paratroopers from the 80th Brigade).
At this moment, there is no clear line of front, and, as we can see, settlements easily pass from one side to another.
The main outcome was yet another failed Ukie offensive that was intended to de-blockaded the units surrounded in the “intestine”. They threw their last reserves into battle, and, by the looks of it, have now exhausted their offensive potential until the commencement of the third wave of mobilization. Small local victories have had no bearing on the overall operational situation.
13:40 – July 28, 2014 – Information from LifeNews Information Agency
The Ukrainian army has not taken the Saur-Mogila height; fighting is continuing. Earlier, the press service of the Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko disseminated information suggesting that the strategically important point came under control of the Ukrainian military.
The Ukrainian forces were unable to take control of the Saur-Mogila height near the city of Snezhnoye (DPR), where the Militia of the DPR has been holding positions since the beginning of July. This information was provided to LifeNews by the coordinator of the information center “South-Eastern Front”, Konstantin Knyrik. According to his information, militiamen informed that fighting continues in the area of the strategic height and of the neighboring villages Marinovka and Dmitrovka, and that there can be no talk about surrendering Saur-Mogila.
15:00 – July 28, 2014 – Briefing from the Staff of the DPR Ministry of Defence
DPR Press Centre
On July 27, the enemy undertook serious attempts at an offensive – significant forces were pulled up to the sites of the breakthroughs, and, in certain areas, they had success. However, the troops of the DPR Armed Forces were able to thwart all the undertaken attempts.
In particular, the attempted breakthrough by a large grouping of the Ukrainian forces to the east of Shakhtersk led to the grouping suffering simply colossal losses.
Whereas before such losses could be promptly calculated, now, even as of the morning of July 28, we are still unable conclusively to determine how many of the servicemen of the Ukrainian army found their death on the field of battle. Fighting in the Shakhtersk area continues.
Over the past day, fierce battles have been continuing in the Dmitrovka area. The DPR Army has withdrawn to the neighboring Pavlovka; the forces of the sides are unequal. The militiamen were forced to retreat under massive mortar fire. A group of 20 reconnaissance volunteers stayed behind in Dmitrovka. At this moment, there is no communications with them.
In the area of the Saur-Mogila, a heavy battle was occurring. By the way, DPR reinforcements have arrived in Torez. Everything also is in order in Snezhnoye, so the danger to Saur-Mogila has been neutralized.
In Pervomaisk, the punitive forces have entered onto the territory of the city (in the area of the school near the Novaya road). The fighting continues.
15:00 – July 28, 2014 – LPR Briefing for the First Part of the Day (as of 15:00)
Today, the fiercest clashes with the enemy on the outskirts of Lugansk occurred in the area of the Georgievka settlement. Units of the LPR were able to take control of the dominant height at the road junction, while the enemy occupied positions closer to the settlement itself.
Throughout last night, in the morning, and through the day, units of the DPR conducted targeted shelling of the enemy’s positions in the places of the greatest concentration of enemy forces. In particular, Lugansk forces inflicted serious losses on the aggressor in the Georgievka area, as well as near the settlement of Cheluskinets.
Yesterday night the Ukrainian side launched two reconnaissance drones into the skies over the city, and today at midday, an aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force conducted an airstrike on the settlement of Novosvetlovka (Krasnodon region).
The Ukrainian Armed Forces continued the shelling of Slavyansk, and, in particular, mines and shells (presumably from a Tulpan heavy mortar and a self-propelled artillery unit) hit in the areas of Rudnev Street, School No. 35, and Shcherbakov Street.
Movement of a large tank column toward Krasnoe-Perezvanovka was noted; units of the LPR were brought into the state of heightened battle alert.
Yesterday, in the vicinity of the settlement of Depreradovka, LPR units inflicted serious losses on enemy forces; 1 tank, 2 BTR’s and 15 fighters of the Ukrainian army were eliminated.
18:50 – July 28, 2014 – Information from a Journalist with LPR Press Service, A. Toporov
Today Ukies bombed a nursing home on the Geologicheskaya Street. This is the Shcherbakov district in the south-eastern part of Lugansk. Five elderly were killed. I do not know if they were children of the [Great Patriotic] War, or even its participants, but it is highly unlikely that they ever expected that the whistle of the shells, familiar to all of us through black-and-white newsreels and Soviet films, will ever come back to their home …
19:15 – July 28, 2014 – Commentary from LPR Prime Minister Bashirov
I hope to God that I am mistaken. The video crew of the press service is rushing over to Kambrod. Residents called us – a shell hit a nursing home. Initial information: 5 were killed and UNKNOWN NUMBER were wounded. The hospitals are waiting. Can you imagine the difference between treating wounded who are 30-40 years old and wounded elderly, who are 60-70 years old?!
Yes. The news has been confirmed. And they could not even run …
July 28, 2014 – Novorossiya Military Briefing
18:55 – The Gorlovka Diocesan Administration came under artillery fire by the Ukrainian punitive forces – corpses of the killed are killed lying on the surrounding streets; church buildings were damaged.
18:54 – Ukrainian military bombed a nursing home on the Geologicheskaya Street. This is the Shcherbakov district in the south-eastern part of Lugansk. Five elderly were killed. There is an unknown number of wounded.
18:50 – Information from the DPR Press Centre: during the day, street battles were ongoing between the Militia and the Ukrainian punitive forces. The city essentially has been divided into two zones of control. The city continues to be subjected to airstrikes and artillery shelling by the Ukrainian army. Cluster ammunition, MLRS and howitzers are being used.
18:44 – Over the past week, every morning (around 04:00 am) 3 MI-24 and 1 MI-8 helicopters have been taking off from the Kramatorsk airfield, flying through Semyonovka in the southern direction. They return having, by the looks of it, exhausted their ammunition.
18:20 – Two refueling trucks and 1 BTR with several infantry atop the armor came through Glinki, headed toward Kumachevo.
18:19 – The Ukrainian Air Force conducted a rocket-bomb strike at the Lugansk Cartridge Works, also known as the Lenin plant.
July 28, 2014 – Commentary Regarding the Military Situation from Militiaman Prokhorov
– who now controls Debaltsevo and Enakievo?
Prokhorov: I will tell you right away – I don’t have a full picture of what is happening in the DPR; I only have a fragmentary understanding. Yesterday, Debaltsevo was surrendered by the costumed Cossacks – without battle. Ukies destroyed the local House of Culture and the railway workers’ hospital, where wounded were recovering. Reinforcements were sent there, and they are the ones maintaining the resistance in the city. However, the larger part of the city is controlled by Ukies. With respect to Enakievo, Bezler’s Gorlovka militiamen are in control there. I was recently told that they’ve declared an open hunting season in those parts.
– with respect to Shakhtersk.
Prokhorov: Ukies are only on the outskirts of Shakhtersk. Militiamen have dispersed throughout the city. Skirmishes periodically occur in the area of the settlement of the 12th mine and in the 7th and 8th districts of the city.
– with respect to Donetsk, Gorlovka and Popasnoye
Prokhorov: Neither Donetsk nor Gorlovka have been cut off. Nothing of the sort. Ukies were kicked out of Popasnoye.
By the way, sniper continue to work in Lisichansk to this day. With respect to Saur-Mogila, I was told that near Amvrosievka a Ukie column was discovered (totaling approximately 30 vehicles) – we are following its fate very closely.
Near Dolzhanskiy, the 24th Lvov Brigade is in a state of panic – they are requesting to be de-blockaded. I will remind you – the units of the 24th, 28th, 72nd, and 51st mechanized brigades, of the 79th Aeromobile, of the 3rd Spetsnaz regiment, and of the combined border guard detachment have been blocked inside the “intestine”.
Five elderly died in a nursing home in Lugansk as a result of shelling by the Ukrainian army. Ukrainian saboteurs continue to conduct mortar strikes on Lugansk. This time, a hospital, a firehouse and a nursing home, where five elderly dies became their targets.


July 29, 2014 – Latest Hourly Briefings from Locations
In Shakhtersk, fierce battles continue, there is no information about losses yet. Near Saur-Mogila, all the attacks have been repelled; Ukies are sustaining fairly serious losses, and the Militia has entrenched itself well there. For now, we have news that a tank company and several armoured vehicles have been destroyed.
With respect to the 79th Brigade: Ukies, you spend your time [in this forum], so let your guys know. In Nikolayev, they are now arresting the mothers of the guys in the 79th Brigade, who are serving their “motherland”. They were rather harshly dispersed, and a number of criminal investigations have been opened. So tell them to think who it is that they are fighting for.

The Patriotard Mindset of the Average American

Number One Douche (great name for a typical American) says:

Of course the world doesn’t like us, we’ve been kicking their asses around like it’s no big deal and then just have to sit there and EAT IT! Sucks for them. It would suck for us it their opinion really mattered all that much.

I cannot tell you how many Americans I have met with exactly this attitude. All conservatives think like this, but you would be shocked to find out how many Democratic Party liberals think exactly like this too. And the end of the day, most Americans are patriotards. Great big douchey patriotards.
I am curious though. What % of the population do you think really thinks like this guy in one way or another? Surely over 50%. 60%? 70%? 80%?
The number must be very high because I hardly ever meet an American who doesn’t think like this in one way or another. This thinking seems to be part and parcel of the American mindset and personality.
My response: But that’s not a very good attitude now is it? Did we kick Iraq’s ass around? Did we kick the Taliban’s ass around? The Baath is still extremely strong (in fact they just took over all of Sunni Iraq), and the Taliban have never been defeated. We have pretty much failed in both countries, most spectacularly in Iraq.
I do not think it is an intelligent attitude to think that you are the bully on the block who has been kicking everyone’s ass for so long that there is nothing anyone can do it and you don’t even care how your victims think. Nothing lasts forever. If all you do is make enemies, that’s not a helpful way to go through life. People who fight everyone around them don’t have long life expectancies.
Our enemies sure have been killing and wounding a lot of Americans in recent years, haven’t they. Furthermore they have bled us dry spending treasure trying to beat the unbeatable.

Major Russian Escalation in the Ukraine!

There was a major escalation in the Ukraine conflict yesterday. The Nazis fired four Tochka SS-21 missiles at self-defense forces’ positions near the Southern Cauldron where a large Nazi force has been trapped for some time now. Just before they were launched, a large Russian force surged en masse towards the Ukrainian border. They halted just before the border. After the Nazis launched these dangerous missiles, Russian forces shot down all three missiles from inside Russia using some sort of an advanced system.

July 30th Combat SITREP by Juan

Information from very reliable sources. These sources are in Novorossiya, Russian Federation, EU and Ukraine:
29.07.2014 in afternoon Ukraine time 4 SS-21 Tochka tactical ballistic missiles were fired by Ukraine Armed Forces. At least two were clearly aimed at Saur Moglia with the idea of the Ukes trapped in The Cauldron having a sudden escape route opened for them. Moments before launch Russian Federation units surged toward the border at The Cauldron area and to the north of The Cauldron.
None of the 4 Tochka missiles reached their targets. I repeat, none of the 4 Tochka missiles reached their targets and none impacted with the ground anywhere that can be found in anything close to one piece. As you know this missile can carry a tactical nuke, chem/bio, cluster munition or HE in the weight of just under 500 kilos.
When the 4 missiles failed to reach their targets, the Armed Forces of RF immediately halted their surge and held position.
There has been a noticeable slow down of fighting activity since the launches, and Strelkov has pointedly said again that Novorossiya is open to negotiations.
The 4 Tochka missiles were shot down over Novorossiya territory occupied by Ukraine Armed Forces before the missiles reached their programmed height. They were shot down from inside RF according to normally reliable sources. No visual evidence has been provided of RF shooting down the Tochka systems nor of the system used to shoot down the Tochka missiles.
As of today, Russian forces continue to hold these positions.

Obama on the Ukraine: Stumbling from One Crisis to the Next

Here.
Listen to Steven Cohen. He is one of maybe two policy experts remaining who is sane on the subject of the Ukraine. Cohen says he has never seen such hawkish uniformity in his life. Even the Iraq War was not nearly this bad. In the run-up to that war, there were many experts arguing that it was a bad thing to do. Now there is unanimity across the entire media spectrum, from right to left, the left being represented by MSNBC (not really the Left, more like the voice of the Democratic Party, which is not a liberal or progressive political party). Further, all foreign policy experts are very hawkish on the Ukraine.
Obama has isolated himself, exactly as Bush did and is only listening to his yes-men, who do not know what they are doing. Most of Obama’s advisors are out of academia and few of them have actual diplomatic street smarts from years in service to the state. Although I despise the man, Obama also refuses to listen to Henry Kissinger, who is actually saner on the Ukraine than the Obama Administration. Even the horrifying Brezhinski makes more sense than Obama’s aides. Sure there are brains in the Administration such as the CIA (but considering how much they lie, how can they be trusted?) but the smart folks and the intelligence guys are locked out by a huge firewall at the State Department.
Obama appears to have outsourced most of this crisis to Joe Biden and John Kerry, both of whom have behaved horribly. In the past few days, I have seen photos of John Kerry where he looks pure evil. This is his alter coming out, the one  that set fire to villages in the Mekong Delta and shot civilians as they ran out of their burning grass huts.
The Republican nutcase Congress has just introduced a bill that would force Obama’s hand on the Ukraine. It would make Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova “NATO-associated US allies” thus triggers arms aid to them in addition to an alliance. The alliance is dangerous because an attack on one is an attack on any other. A Russian attack on the Ukraine (which would be a great idea) would be an attack on the US. The US would be obligated to help Georgia and Moldova “get back their stolen lands” in Abkhazia, South Ossetia, and Transdniester. The bill would give Putin a short period of time to vacate the Crimea before massive sanctions would kick in all but severing trade between the US and Russia.
It is hard to say how many DINO’s there are in the Senate whose votes would be needed in order for this bill to pass. If it passed, Obama might be forced to sign it by the principle of expediency and political necessity.
I hate to agree with Republicans for once but I think they are right when they say that the Obama Administration simply does not know what it is doing a lot of the time. Not knowing what you are doing is not necessarily the worst thing. Bush knew what he was doing but what he was doing was pure evil. Incompetence is better than malign intent.
 
 
 
 
 
 

"The Death of a Young Sailor," by Alpha Unit

Ashtabula, Ohio, is a major coal port on Lake Erie. The coal dock at Ashtabula Harbor is a transload point for coals destined for electricity-generating plants and cement producers in Canada and the Great Lakes area. Coals from Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia arrive at Ashtabula by train before being sent on their way. Other commodities coming through the port include iron ore, sand, gravel, and stone.

Among the ships you could see at Ashtabula Harbor was the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald, a lake freighter that carried iron ore from mines near Duluth, Minnesota, to iron works near cities like Detroit and Toledo. A young man named Karl Peckol, barely out of Ashtabula High School, signed on to work on the Edmund Fitzgerald. He became a watchman.

Most of the crew on the Fitzgerald were veteran seamen. But there were some novices, including Karl Peckol, who didn’t necessarily aspire to a life as a sailor. Stacy Millberg says that Peckol was working on going to college. He didn’t get to go to college. He died on November 10, 1975, when the Fitzgerald sank in a storm on Lake Superior. At 20 years old, he was the youngest man on board.

Sergei Glazyev, "US Is Militarizing Ukraine to Invade Russia"


I believe that every word he says is 100% correct. It is important to see this Ukraine mess for exactly what it is. To do that you really need to disconnect yourself from US/Western propaganda. This man speaks the truth. Transcript follows.

TRANSCRIPT
Regarding the policies of Kiev, let me say this: Kiev is clearly conducting a policy of genocide to eliminate the whole population of Donbass. They are unashamedly destroying the social infrastructure. They’ve smashed Europe’s finest airport without batting a eyelid. Aside from the monstrous number of victims, this was a gigantic infrastructure project, the pride of Donbass. They’re destroying hospitals, kindergartens, schools.
The fate they’re preparing for the people of Donbass is serfdom, which they make no secret of. Just listen to the statements made by Kiev’s chief ideologists, such as Liashko. Poroshenko’s position is not significantly different. They see Donbass purely as a source of income, a place to pump out profits from, by horrific exploitation of the people. As it is, the population is already being exploited brutally: wages are low – and paid in envelopes, the pension funds are bankrupt, safety conditions for the workers are worse than in the last century. It’s a merciless exploitation of the people.
Conditions are being established to make people leave the place. Those who are not tied to work in the factories and mines are being driven out. They are the refugees whom we are receiving in our country today. The Kiev authorities are brutally destroying the social infrastructure of Donbass. They’re not interested in the region’s manufacturing and science potential.
So they have no sympathy for the engineering industry there, which is closely integrated into the Russian industrial complex and otherwise would cease to exist. It’s obvious that the United States is fully controlling the Kiev Nazis, Poroshenko personally, and the government, and is pushing them to pursue this war against Donbass to the very end.
I disagree with Feodor, who said there is some kind of limit. They have no limits. They’ve already deployed Grad rocket launchers. Tymoshenko has threatened to nuke them. This is not simply an expression of emotion. It has triggered a certain reaction from the Nazis. If they had a neutron bomb, they probably would have used it already on Slaviansk. I have no doubt about that. They are using all means at their disposal and will wage this war until the resistance in Donbass is completely eliminated. Why? Because this is a war by the United States against us. They are pushing the war, providing the weapons and finance, and directing the campaign.
I agree with Mihail Remizov: time is on the side of the Nazis, strangely enough. On the one hand we’re anticipating the collapse of the regime from the wreckage of the insurmountable socioeconomic problems. But in Georgia that didn’t happen. By a huge effort they managed to get rid of Saakashvili. But that wasn’t brought about by a rebellion in society. It happened by democratic processes, which in Ukraine is already an impossibility.
Why is time not on our side? To be more exact, not on the side of Donbass. The Americans, and their puppets in Kiev, have set a course of militarization of Ukraine, construction of a Nazi dictatorship, total mobilization of the population against Russia. Although the population is not currently very enthusiastic about the mobilization, consider the dynamics: In December (2013) there were 2,000 Nazis in Kiev. By February there were 20,000 armed Nazis. By May the number was 50,000, along with the new army recruits. During the summer it will reach 100,000. In September there will be 200,000.
We’re talking about the plans for the call-up of people of military age. By the end of the year they will have half a million armed people at their disposal. Their military equipment is being brought out from storage. Ukraine possesses a large army, which had been removed from operation. But the Kharkov industries are now working at full capacity, restoring tanks and armor. Bringing these tanks out of storage, resurrecting and modernizing them is really not difficult. 200 armored vehicles are engaged in the war. The number is increasing every day. The same is happening with their aviation,
which is being brought out of storage in Odessa.
So what will we face? A very powerful military machine targeting us, fired up by Nazis, ideologically indoctrinated against Russia, who will push the army into war, then block them from behind to prevent retreat. Their goal is a war against Russia – that’s not something we can just sit out. Having lost Donbass, we will also lose the peace.
The next target they will declare is Crimea. I’m not joking. Ukraine will be pushed brutally, resolutely and across the board into a war against Russia on the pretext of Crimea. Poroshenko has stated officially that his intention is war against Russia. How else would they get Crimea back. Nuland said very clearly in Odessa that they expect their Ukrainian agents to go to war against Russia for Crimea. This armada of half a million people will invade Crimea. There is no doubt.
In conclusion, let me remind you of the words of Churchill:
“You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war.”
We’re talking about a modern war, which doesn’t mean that our tanks have to roll into Kiev. But we have the right under international law to at least stop the genocide. All that is needed is to close the airspace, and use the same mechanisms to shut down the heavy weapons which are being used against the population, as the Americans themselves did in Libya:
They closed the airspace, then fired at their armored vehicles, artillery and aviation. As a result the regime they were fighting against was unable to engage in battle. We still have the chance to do that.
Half a year from now that chance will be gone. Lugansk and Donetsk have established parliaments and authorities uniting the two republics. Kiev’s unwillingness to negotiate with them is a result of their having no independence: they are in reality subordinated to the United States. Therefore it’s very important that we identify Ukraine as an occupied territory of the US, except for Donbass, which is resisting. Once we start using the correct terms and frame of reference, then it will be clear what we need to do.
If Ukraine is occupied by the United States and their mercenaries, who are manipulating their marionette regime to hold the population at gunpoint and make them fight against Russia, to unleash firstly a civil war and later a world war, dragging in Europe too, and ultimately all of Eurasia, then it’s very important to determine the correct terminology. We’re encouraging other regions not only to join the federation but to liberate themselves from occupation and to find the courage to take the kind of steps as has been done in Donbass. Let’s be clear again about our frame of reference: The Kiev leadership is not independent.
Essentially they are a network of American agents – American puppets. Poroshenko didn’t win the presidential election. Experts have computed that not more than 40% voted for him. How this farce of an “election” was orchestrated is another discussion. The territory of Ukraine is under occupation and control by the United States. There is tons of evidence. The Americans have legalized the stationing of their military instructors there. SBU is fully under the control of the CIA. It’s an occupied territory of the Americans.
So we need to talk about their illegal occupation of the territory and its liberation, and how they’re using the mass media to drive up the Nazi hysteria, by which the Americans will unleash the 4th world war, considering that the 3rd world war was the cold war against the Soviet Union.
I invite you in our next discussion to highlight the reasons for this war,
why the US has been cultivating Ukrainian Nazism and is now unleashing it against Russia, why they launched this war in Ukraine as a pretext to pull Russia into a direct military confrontation with Ukrainian armed forces, in order to create a regional war in Europe, and after that what is essentially the fourth world war. This aggression is directed not only against Russia. In the first instance the objective is Europe. The Americans have gained from every war in Europe – the first world war, the second world war, the cold war. The wars in Europe are the means of their economic miracle, their own prosperity.
It’s also a war against China.Now Japan and Korea are being pulled into the arms race. The missile defense systems will be modernized and upgraded in Japan and on the Korean peninsula, the Americans have announced. This is directed at both Russia and China.
So we have to understand that the key to resolving the catastrophe of Ukraine is to be found in Washington.
That’s where Nazism has to be defeated.

What Country Is the Biggest Danger to World Peace?

The United States is the greatest threat to world peace. Surveys conducted around the world consistently found that the US and Israel were considered to be the greatest dangers to world peace. Only 8% rates Russia the biggest danger.
I get the feeling the world doesn’t like us very much.
Since 1980, US, a peaceful country inhabited by a peace-loving people and the greatest country on Earth, attacked:

If you don’t agree, we have drones over your country right now.

Photos and Video from Yesterday's Ukraine Fighting

There is very heavy fighting going on between the Nazis and the self-defense forces around both Lugansk and Donetsk in addition to many other towns. The Nazis are doing a lot better around Donetsk than they are around Lugansk. The self-defense forces have definitely retreated in the past few weeks and they control less territory than they did before.
Nevertheless, a large Nazi contingent has been cut off and nearly or completely surrounded in an area called “The Southern Cauldron” for weeks now.

They cannot be reinforced by air and air supplies are intermittent. This heavy armored group is running out of food and fuel. They have sustained heavy losses of men up to 50% of their fighting force. They are now holed up near forested areas waiting things out. They continue to be pounded incessantly but have not yet been defeated.
Apparently Nazi troops in the Southern Cauldron last night. Terrifying scene.

The Southern Cauldron is near where the jet down, south of that area. The south end of the Cauldron is the Russian border. They are surrounded by self-defense forces on all three sides.
Nazi troops in the Southern Cauldron last night. The ground is literally burning beneath their feet!

This video below shows the results of very heavy fighting around Lugansk yesterday. Nazis were hit hard by self-defense forces. Here you see the loss of what looks like an armored column. I do not know anything more about this battle.

Warning from the Saker

Here.
In this post, the Saker writes:

I hope to be able to address what I see as The Key Issue (all in caps!) by Thursday morning/early afternoon: will the US/NATO attempt to attack Russian and/or Novorussia and, if yes, how?

So this is what it’s all heading up to, eh? The US and NATO are seriously thinking of attacking either the Russian people or the Novorussian people and self-defense forces. I knew that NATO might attack Russia, but it always seem too nutty even for the scum who rule the West. But declaring war on the Novorussian people? Wow! Why? For taking up arms against a Nazi regime installed by the West in the heart of Europe.
 
 
 
 
 
 

In the Ukrainian Conflict, the West Is Lining up with the Nazis Against the Antifas. Why?

In the Ukrainian conflict pitting the Nazi Ukrainian regime against Novorussian antifa separatist self-defense forces in the East, all of the West is has lined up with the Nazis, oddly enough. This is really a re-run of the times right after WW2, when much of the West supported the Banderist Ukrainian nationalist Nazis fighting the USSR in the Ukraine. The Nazi nationalist forest fighters of the Baltic states such as Latvia and Estonia also received a lot of Western support, as did the rightwing death squad regime in Greece.
It didn’t take long after the Nazis were defeated that the West rallied with their old Nazi pals. Many Nazis were spirited away from the prison cells that loomed before them to South America and even to the United States. The US helped many of these Nazis escape because the CIA realized that Nazis were some of the most savage anti-Communists of all, and the CIA wanted to use these Nazis in order to fight the USSR.
In the early days of Hitler’s regime around 1933, many in the West were quite smitten with Adolf. The Jewish-owned New York Times even ran long articles lauding the Fuhrer for his staunch anti-Communism. This shows that the rich Jews will always side with Capital no matter what form it takes, even when Capital is against the Jewish people. Big Money Jews will choose Mammon over Israel any day of the week and will sell out the tribe for the price of a piece of silver with barely the blink of an eye.
The US of course is fanatically pro-Nazi. Opinion polls show that the overwhelming majority of Americans are supporting the Nazis in this conflict. Is there a reason for this except that US foreign policy has always supported rightwingers?
The UK is also extremely pro-Nazi now. What is the reason for this? Why would the UK be supporting the Nazis in this conflict? The truth here may be that the UK is an “Atlanticist” state. Atlanticism is a political philosophy popular in Western Europe for a while now. Atlanticist European states line up with the US on every foreign policy issue due to some unfracturable alliance. They don’t even think of the morals of the issue at stake – they simply do whatever Uncle Sam does. It’s follow the leader. It is considered to be an unbreakable alliance, and the Atlanticist states simply cannot refuse to do whatever the US does. A case of ideology trumping sense.
Spain is very pro-Nazi, but the Spanish ruling class never abandoned fascism, and further they are worried about secessionism in their own land. After the fall of Franco, the fascists never went away. Instead, they slowly folded into the ranks of the Conservative Party which has ruled Spain for more than a few years lately. Although that party is not actively fascist, at the very base of the party is deeply connected to movements with fascist roots. The party is not so much fascist as fascist-allied, and even that is mostly covered up in an ivy of subterfuge.
The Spanish state ran a fascist “anti-terrorism” group that assassinated figures in the Basque guerrilla movement for a number of years. This group operated outside of the military or the police purportedly as another illegal armed group, albeit a rightwing one, even though they were controlled by the security forces. This was for all intents and purposes similar to the CIA’s rightwing death squads of Latin America.
Germany is strongly pro-Nazi now. This makes sense in a lot of ways. Merkel is a Christian Democrat, and that is a party with deep fascist roots. At the end of WW2 although a de-Nazification was said to take place, it never really happened. A few Nazis were removed and even tried, but mostly the whole charade was over in a few years.
The reasons are painful. In order to do a true de-Nazification, you would have to had to imprison or sanction almost the entirety of German society. Nearly everyone was guilty at some level.
In East Germany, they did a much better job of this, and although the East German regime ended up being staunchly antifascist, this transformation never happened in the West.
Many former Nazis simply recycled their way into political parties, and the conservative Christian Democrats were the party of choice as the Social Democrats were anathema. The problem was even worse in industry and finance, where sanctions and prison sentences were few, and the German junkers, industrialists and banksters simply cycled their way back into power at the throne of German industry. The West German elite has been heavily former-Nazi for decades now. It’s a dirty little secret, one hardly anyone but Gunter Grass dares talk about.
The Netherlands is one of the most pro-Nazi states of all in Europe. I don’t get this, except that the Netherlands is one of the strongest Atlanticist states of them all. The tail on the American dog. They follow American orders.
France is taking a less pro-Nazi line than the rest. Most Frenchmen still hate the Vichy Regime, and all forms of Nazism and fascism are seen as repellent and against the moral values of the Republic.
Italy seems to be very much pro-Nazi. I am not sure if I get it, but an Italian friend told me that fascism is still popular among the Italian rich, especially in certain cities such as Rome. The young men of the Italian upper class are especially prone to this deviation. My friend said that fascism simply never went away in Italy. Indeed, some suggest that Berlusconi may have fascist ties.
The Strategy of Tension during the Days of Lead in the 1970’s was a terrorist campaign run by fascist gangs who were supported by the Italian state, the military and the rich. These gangs set off bombs all over Italy, focusing especially on places where large numbers of civilians gathered. The state and state-controlled press always blamed the armed Left (which was small but active) for the bombings, but they never carried out even one of them. Every one of these attacks was documented as a false flag attack. The purpose was simply to create chaos and terror so that the people would feel that they had nowhere to turn but to the state to protect them. Then the state put in increasingly authoritarian laws.
Norway is coming out very strongly for the Nazis, both the press and the vast majority of the people who are apparently brainwashed. I do not get this one either, but Norway surrendered immediately when attacked by Germany, and they promptly put in an ass-kisser named Quisling whose name has gone down in infamy. At the time though, nobody much minded him. What this less that spirited defense says about the Norwegian people, I am not sure.
Australian media is incredibly pro-Nazi. The Australians are part of the Anglosphere which consists of the US, the UK, Canada and Australia. All are now run by fairly rightwing governments. This is considered to be a de facto alliance based on common language and culture originating in the UK. Another case of Ideology Uber Alles.
In Poland, the elite is very much pro-Nazi (Poland and Lithuania are the most pro-Nazi states in Europe) because they have aligned themselves very tightly with US neocons, much to their own detriment. Somehow they think that aligning themselves with the US and with the neocons in particular is the way to the gravy train, but I think they are wrong.
A case of overreaction to their Soviet experience. They hated Communism so much that in reaction, they idiotically moved 180 degrees in the opposite rightwing direction to show how anti-Communist they were. Their hatred for Communism was so great that they lined up with the wildest anti-Communist governments of them all.
However, many of the Polish people are supporting the Novorussian antifas for some reason. This is probably because hatred for Nazism and fascism in general is still probably quite strong among ordinary Poles due to past experience.
Many East European regimes also adopted horrible neoliberal policies once again in an overreaction to Communism. In this case, they chose the most polar opposite economics of all to Communism, which would be neoliberalism/Libertarianism/cowboy capitalism.
Most East European countries who reacted in this stupid way have been seriously damaged. Latvia and Estonia have been nearly destroyed. 1/3 of the labor force of these countries has immigrated due to a financial collapse related to an utterly unregulated financial sector.
After the crash, the neoliberal regimes imposed frightening “austerity” nonsense which did nothing but kick the working people and spit on them while they lay in the gutter. Estonia actually passed laws cutting wages by 1/3. Surely the Estonian rich thought that was a great idea. Social services were eviscerated. It was like 1933 America in Tallinn the past few years. Logically, working people reacted to this extreme abuse by the rich, the capitalists and the political elite of their nations by voting with their feet.
Lithuania and Latvia issued pro-Nazi statements, but they had fascist governments when they were independent between world wars, and after independence, both Lithuanian and Latvian nationalism have had deep pro-Nazi roots. The Nazi-installed regimes in the 1940’s are regarded as the pinnacle of Baltic nationalism, and pro-Nazi fighters fought in the forests for years after the War against the USSR which had usurped their lands. Lithuania and Poland are the most pro-Nazi countries in all of Europe. They are absolutely determined to bring the Nazis into NATO. If they succeed, maybe we will have to change the name of it to Nazi Atlantic Treaty Organization.
Upon independence, all statues from the Soviet era were destroyed, Soviet street names were obliterated, and many new monuments were constructed to heroes of the Lithuanian and Latvian nationalist movements of the 1940’s and 1950’s who were deeply pro-Nazi.
Bigoted laws were imposed on the Russian minority in these countries, demanding that they learn to speak Latvian if they wanted to vote or claim benefits. Now a large percentage of the Latvian electorate, the Russian speakers, are disenfranchised and cannot vote in elections. Nevertheless, Latvia is very worried about the Russian minority in their country writhing under the Latvians’ own boot heels. There are rumblings of a secessionist movement among these Russians, but no one knows how serious it is.
Austria, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Denmark, Slovakia, Ireland, Czech Republic, Romania and New Zealand – Their positions are unknown. Slovakia and Romania might want a bite out of a disintegrating Ukraine themselves. Romanian Bessarabia was annexed to the USSR in the 1940’s by Stalin.
Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, and Serbia may well be lining up against the Nazis and with the Russian antifas due to a common culture they share with Orthodox Russia. A large contingent of Serbian antifa fighters have gone to Novorussia to fight the Nazis.

FARC Attack, 2013

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zx0a8IM8fbQ
FARC attack somewhere in the jungles of Colombia sometime in 2013.
The lying MSM world media, excuse me the “free press” (TM), all speaks with one mind about the FARC. The FARC are evil narcoterrorists, and the government of Colombia are freedom fighters battling evil Commie thugs. In recent years, all under the phony lying guise of the Drug War, the US has pumped massive amounts of money into the fascist, murderous Colombian state.
The US is virtually the only nation on Earth that supports Colombia, though Israel does send some trainers to help train their death squads. Israeli trainers have been sent to all fascist rightwing dictatorships on Earth, where they trained the reactionaries how to slaughter and torture the people.
Israelis worked training death squads in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Colombia at the very least (let me know if you can come up with some more). The Israeli excuse for this is that Israel is the attack dog of the US, so when the US tells Israel to go in and train death squads, Israel obeys.
Personally I believe that the fascist Israelis, deeply allied with US imperialism, simply see themselves as serving the interests of imperialism by setting up death squads to attack people’s movements. This also shows that the Israeli state has been deeply reactionary for a long time, extending back to the 1980’s, and that the Israelis, even “Labor” Israelis, have always worked for the banksters and the elite world controllers to attack, torture and kill the ordinary masses fighting against oppression. Do you see a corollary with Israeli behavior training death squads and the colonial treatment of the Palestinians?
The lying world media has been saying for some time now that the FARC is nearly defeated, have lost almost all their fighting force, are no longer able to launch attacks and are in retreat everywhere suffering heavy losses.
Part of the problem is that the massive US aid to the elite death squads of the rich attacking the oppressed poor people has included much intelligence gathering aid, in particular – the Pentagon is now operating in Colombia doing sigintel. They have forward that information to the Colombian government who used it to raid and bomb the headquarters of some rebel leaders.
It is true that some rebel leaders have been killed in the past few years, but they are always quickly replaced by the next in command. FARC has a huge leadership structure that is very organized. When one mode is knocked off, they simply promote the next in command, and everyone moves up a notch. No problem.
In addition,  Colombia now has a large air force provided by the US, and the rebels lack good anti-aircraft weapons to down these planes. It’s a major disadvantage as Colombian forces did not use to rely on airpower very much.
Looking at this video here, in which the FARC overrun a small Colombian Army camp and seize a great deal of equipment while killing some of the enemy, tell me if you think this looks like an army on the verge of defeat.

Pakistan Is Israel

Here.
Yeah, Muslims are hypocrites. No kidding. Muslims are about the biggest hypocrites of all. I think they way worse hypocrites than Jews actually. Jews actually have a certain sense of universalism and wanting to take the high road.
Of course, Judaism as a religion is as shitty as any other religion. I think it might be one of the worst religions of them all.
Judaism is based on double standards. It’s right there in the Talmud, on every single page. There are two sets of rules, one set of rules for the Jews, the Chosen People, and another set of rules for the goyim. Everything a deeply religious Jew does is based on this system of dual morality.
Islam isn’t much better in this regard, in fact, I think it is even worse.
Two sets of rules, right? One set of rules for the Muslims and another set of rules for infidels living under Muslim rule, no?
Infidels living under Muslim rule are the victims of dual morality the same the goyish victims of Jewish scoundrels are are.
The more you think about it, these two religions are very similar.
They are both ancient tribal religions that starkly split the world into the Elect, the believers or Chosen versus the Forsaken, the goys or infidels. The only difference is that Jews treat the goys around them a lot better than Muslims treat the infidels among them.
And Judaism isn’t about taking over the world. All they want is a piece of a sandbox in the middle of the desert. The Muslims want it all, global conquest. Scary people.

Top NRA Second Amendment Attorney is a Convicted Murderer

After previous armed robberies, one night Robert J. Dowlut shot and seriously wounded a jewelry shop owner in a robbery. Later he went to the home his girlfriend Camille shared with her mother Anne Marie Yocum. Dowlut had never gotten along with his girlfriend’s mother, and the mother did not approve of Dowlut dating her daughter. He walked into Anne Marie Yocum’s house. She looked up, startled. He shot her once and then shot her again, this time dead, on the stairwell. Then he ditched the murder weapon, a Webley Mark VI revolver, in a cemetery.
The investigation was botched, his right to an attorney was repeatedly denied, and he was repeatedly threatended with physical harm if he did not confess. It’s amazing they did not beat the conviction out of him. He was convicted and served six years in prison but was released when a judge voided the conviction due to massive prosecutorial misconduct in the course of his interrogation. The DA declined to try the case again as much of the evidence revolved around his confession after he was arrested, evidence which would now not be allowed in court.
Dowlut went on to become a successful attorney. At age 68, he is one of the NRA’s top attorneys and is recognized as one of the country’s leading experts on the Second Amendment and state gun laws.
As you can see, he has a very good reason to believe in the right to bear arms.
 

From Civil Rights to Modern Antiracism, a Moral Inversion

Found on the web:

After the chicken’s chicks were all killed at eaten by the fox, a liberal chicken then said to the surviving chicken “Ya know, not all foxes are like that.”

Nice. Increasingly, modern antiracism is simply becoming absurd, stupid, dangerous, belligerently abusive and pro-suicidal.
Thinking back to our salad days in the Civil Rights Movement, I remember how things were so much different back then. We Whites were fighting for good people! Good, fine, upstanding Black people, of which there were plenty at the time and even now.
Was James Meredith a dirtball? Of course not? Was Rosa Parks a slimebag? You kidding? Were the Little Rock a bunch of scumbuckets? Huh?
If you think of yourself as a good person, it feels good to be fighting for the rights of other good people. And it is painful to see good people being so mistreated merely because of who their parents were. It’s so wrong it hurts. This was the essence of the moral impetus behind the Civil Rights Movement.
We won most of our battles, and here it is, 50 years on, and anti-racism is so far away from the Civil Rights Movement that it seems like it’s on another planet altogether.
Now the antiracist movement does nothing but support criminals.
All of the modern antiracist heroes have been criminals, often pretty bad ones. Most of them are dead and in the ground now, which is really where they belong if you ask me. It’s hard to feel good about supporting a bunch of scumbuckets. It’s hard to feel sorry for them, even if they are getting their rights violated. And typically, the people who aggressed on the Black criminals were the victims in one way or another of the crooks, or they were law enforcement or school officials trying to arrest or discipline the crooks. The ultimate hero of the antiracist movement is none other than OJ Simpson, a narcissistic sociopath who decapitated his girlfriend with a meat cleaver before he sliced her boyfriend to blood-spattered bits.
Many of the antiracist cause celebres have involved Black criminals who get shot by cops, sometimes under dubious circumstances. One thing you will notice that everywhere Black folks move in the world, this racist phenomenon called police brutality rears up its head. There is  this mysterious phenomenon whereby cops all over the world want to fuck over and kill Black people for racist reasons and only racist reasons.
Here is what happens:

  • Lots of Blacks moved to a country, often a Western country.
  • Over a period of time, they start to commit lots of crime, particularly violent crime, including homicide. They also start joining gangs and dealing a lot of dope.
  • This goes on for a while, and the police start arresting a lot of the Black criminals, for good reason.
  • The Black community starts to hate cops for “taking so many of our good men away.” Police are seen as a hostile because they are doing their job, which is to arrest Black criminals.
  • Sooner or later, a Black criminal is shot dead or badly beaten under possibly dubious circumstances. There is nothing necessarily racist about this. Most Western police departments have wildly stringent anti-discrimination policies and are far more PC than your average workplace. Police commissioners are tired of getting sued for this stuff so they are taking pre-emptive action.
  • What happens is once Black people start committing tons of crime and getting arrested all the time, sooner or later there is going to be a questionable shooting. It’s the law of averages. If Whites committed crime at Black rates, there would be a lot of dubious police shootings of White people. Dubious shootings are part and parcel of a group that commits lots of crime.
  • Blacks start rioting because one of their criminals got shot dead or beat up badly by police, which is a pretty bad reason to tear down a city if you ask me.
  • Antiracist movements begin to take up the “antiracist” cause of police brutality, an issue that usually has little to do with race.

These antiracist movements spend almost all of their time defending the absolute worst of Black society, the scum of the Earth. These are their heroes. If you are on the Left, you are supposed to support the lionization of these sociopaths. If you point out what scumbags they are, you are accused or racism yourself.
You see how far we have come? Pointing out that the Black criminal cause celebre du jour who may have been victimized is actually a piece of dirt is racism! It’s racism for good people to call criminals what they are!
That’s pretty breathtaking.
It goes far beyond that. All criticism of mass dysfunction in Black America, typically in the more ghetto areas, is slammed as racism. Good people are called racists for complaining about bad people acting bad! Wow! That takes my breath away.
If you try to counter an anti-White myth such as that Whites are more likely to be child molesters or serial killers by pointing out that actually Blacks have higher rates of both serial killing and child molesting, you are a racist! Whoa! It’s racist to pore through crime statistics to try to catch people telling racist lies about crime rates of various races! It’s racist to point out that Group X commits way more of Crime Z than Group Y.
Pointing out the obvious is racist. Telling the truth is racist. Hard and fast statistical truths are racist. Apparently, The Truth itself is racist.
The only way not to be a racist in this modern era is to be a liar!
This idiotic movement extends to the rest of the world. Much of the 3rd World is very screwed up. A lot of it is non-White. Pointing out how lame, dysfunctional, and pathological these failed states and cultures are is racist. Damn! Good people criticizing bad people overseas for acting bad is racist. People from decent cultures criticizing sick cultures for being stupid and evil is racist.
Pointing out that Country X is swarming with crooks, liars, cheaters, frauds and thieves, not to mention violent crooks, is racist. Telling people to avoid these shitholes is racist. In fact, we are ordered to travel to these shitholes just to prove how antiracist we area. In this sense, modern anti-racism is pro-suicidal. They want good people to go to places were lots of terrible people who act awful and stay there a while (presumably until they get victimized, which won’t be long) just to prove their antiracist mettle.
If you say, “I don’t see why I should risk my life and limb to associate with this group just because a few of them are good people,” you are racist.
Modern antiracism does nothing but defend bad people.
All of its heroes are criminals, often very bad criminals. These are the leading lights of the movement. It is racist for good people to criticize the bad behavior of these criminal heroes.
The only cultures it defends are non-White 3rd World cultures where a large percentage of the people act terrible, where states are failed, where cultures are toxic when they are not flat out wicked. Yes, to modern antiracism, the worst, most dysfunctional, corrupt, amoral and idiotic cultures of all are actually the best ones of them. These are the “heroic cultures” of modern antiracism. Modern antiracism fetes barbaric cultures above all else.
Cultures are crappy because they are full of crappy people – who behave in lousy ways and think in even worse ways. There is no such thing as a crappy culture full of good people. Good people make good cultures. Lousy people make lousy cultures.
The bottom line is that antiracism criticizes good people for attacking the behavior of bad people. It’s racist for good people to defend themselves against bad people – I assume we are supposed to let them kill us to prove earn our antiracist stripes in the afterlife. Anti-racism attacks people from good, competent, successful cultures for attacking lousy, incompetent and failed cultures. Once again, it punishes the good for attacking the bad.
I could go on here, but I think I will stop. You get the idea.
All I have to say is that this is a complete inversion of the moral principles I signed up for in the Civil Rights Movement. We were the good guys fighting for the good people against the bad people. Now it’s the other way around.
Let me off this bus please, Rosa.

An Alternate View on US Tourism to Nigeria

Tulio writes:

I still don’t buy it. I can go on expat forums and find plenty of people who had no issues in West Africa and enjoy living there. I trust people who actually LIVE there *long-term* and have to actually deal with normal people on a regular basis than someone dealing with scammers or someone flying there short-term to collect money.
http://www.expatarrivals.com/article/interview-with-trish-an-canadian-expat-living-in-ghana
http://www.expatarrivals.com/article/interview-with-carsten-a-german-student-in-ghana

Tell you what. I will be completely honest. I read a story on the monger forums about a White guy who went to a village in Nigeria and had the time of his life with 10-15 rotating women all fucking him the whole time he was there. They were very sweet, feminine and kind. I guess they wanted marriage. He experienced no crime, problems or anything like that. Understand that rural life in parts of Nigeria has not yet been destroyed.
And the North was always a safe place to go, except now there is a war on. But before the war was on, the North was a very safe place, almost no crime, no corruption. It’s the polar opposite of the Christian and animist South which is pretty much morally nuked.
I also went to some cool pickup forums – really monger forums (these were really cool places just full of regular guys, often single, roaming around the world trying to get laid). I believe they are still around if anyone wants a cool PUA site that’s not ruined by the recent Manosphere PUA types. There was virtually no Roissy/Roosh dickery/assholery going on, and why should there be anyway? We are all just guys trying to get laid, come on. Why fight?
There was a section on Nigeria, and I went there out of curiosity. There were some Black men in the US who were very street-smart fellows (draw whatever conclusions that you will), and they could handle themselves very well in dangerous US Black ghetto situations and had been doing so for many years. They admitted that Nigeria was a highly dangerous and chaotic place but said that if you were Black and street-smart, tough, and knew what you were doing, it was doable. But even these men admitted that from the time you stepped out of the airport, people will try to rip you off and scam you right and left.
Most if not all recommended that no White men go to Nigeria, but that Black men could visit a lot there easier than White men. These Black guys had figured out the games, culture and rhythm of the streets of Nigeria, and they were able to travel there regularly with minimal problems. But it was not for the naive or people who were not hard and tough-minded. These Black guys were really into Black women, and they said there were many beautiful Black women in Nigeria ripe for the picking.
I would say that if you are very tough and street smart US Black man who wants an adventure, you might be able to do Nigeria with minimal problems. But I would not recommend that any White man go there. For one thing, Nigerian Blacks are unbelievably racist against White people. Remember Band on the Run?

The Moshe Feiglin Plan for Gaza

Scary stuff.
This guy is the head of the major faction of the ruling party, the Likud. Most people do not realize it, but the Likud really is a hard rightwing party. It is nothing more than far right fascist political party, and it always has been. The roots of the party are in man named Jabotinsky, who wrote what amounts to the ultimate Likud party statement in 1921 (The Iron Wall) that has governed their philosophy ever since.
Feiglin is considered one of the real hotheads of the rightwing of this rightwing party. Some of his party is embarrassed by him. The Israeli Left hates him. While Netanyahu is a “shadow fascist” (does not display overt fascism), Feiglin is the real deal, a hardcore, hardline ultranationalist fascist of the 1930’s type. He even admires Hitler (as many fascist Zionists did) except for the Jew-killing part of course. These fascists have more in common than you think. A Nazi and a Jabotinsky Zionist might be able to get along just fine as long as they agreed to separate homelands.
Feiglin has also made some very ugly statements about Arabs.
He has made some anti-gay statements, but lately he is sucking up to the increasingly powerful Israeli Gay Lobby.
Feiglin of course is an Orthodox Jew. I honestly think he could get along with Hamas. Hamas are Muslim fundamentalists, and Feiglin is an Orthodox Jew. One’s as religious as the other. I think on some level they respect each other as deeply religious persons. And I have always felt that the real enemies of both the Muslim and Jewish fundamentalists were their secular brethren.
Seizing Gaza and throwing out the Arabs would be nothing new. The Jews have been doing this in Palestine since 1932. It really accelerated from 1947-1949 and then again in 1967. Every month of the year, Israel steals more land and throws more Palestinians off their land. It’s as regular as clockwork. Zionism is a settler-colonial project that is still in its active settler-colonial phase. Think the US before 1890.
Steal more land!
What’s scary is that this nut is really in the Israeli mainstream now. Israel internal politics have become quite frightening in recent years. How much further to the right can they go?

Ukrainians Burn Their Draft Cards

Actually these folks are in Bukovina because I can hear Romanian being spoken in the crowd. Anyone else hear it? Bukovina is a part of Ukraine annexed by the USSR from Nazi Romania during or after WW2 as war spoils. These people are not ethnic Ukrainians, and they feel that they have no dog in this fight. They also say that they never wanted these Maidan uprisings. This is a part of the far west of the Ukraine, but as you can see, even far west is not united around the Nazis at all.
This is the third Nazi major call-up so far. They keep having one draft after another. Penalty for dodging is five years in prison. The Nazi army is suffering heavy casualties in this war and the government seems to be under-reporting the figures. Many deaths are buried on the spot in the battlefield or found later by the self-defense forces and buried by them. I think after this war is over we are going to find that the Nazi death toll was a lot higher than we have been told.

Gaza War Report July 29, 2014

July 28:
Ten Israeli soldiers were killed yesterday and at least another four were badly wounded. It was a bad day for Israel in the battlefield – high casualties.
Hamas tunneled out of Gaza into an area just outside Gaza in Israel called Nahal Oz, across from the closed Nahal Oz crossing. They came out of the tunnel and fired on a nearby Israeli vehicle with RPG’s. Five Israeli soldiers were killed in the clash. IDF claims that all Hamas fighters were killed in return fire.
Hamas claims about the same incident: Hamas claims they killed 10 troops in the Nahal Oz operation (not true – they killed 5). They also claim they tried to capture a soldier as POW but were not able to do so. In addition, they claim that they seized IDF weaponry, specifically IDF automatic weapons (not sure if true). Hamas also claims that all Hamas fighters made it back to their base safely – may or may not be true, as IDF says all intruders were killed.
A mortar attack was reported just outside Gaza that killed 4 IDF troops and seriously wounded 4 more. No precise location was given. I can now report that the hit a group of 70 soldiers who were having a meeting in a house. Five 120mm mortar shells were fired. The attack occurred just inside Israel a bit east of the Kaza’a district in Gaza. Kaza’a is in Gaza east of Khan Younis near the fence.
The other soldier killed was killed on the east end of the city of Rafah in a little known place called Khirbat. A fighter popped out of a tunnel and gunned him down.
It is no longer true that the IDF is operating only ~300 yards inside Gaza as they had for some time. Now they are operating considerably further in – the east end of Rafah is considerable distance inside Gaza.
July 27:
The Algerian plane crash is thought to be due to inclement weather now, not terrorism. However, the investigation is ongoing. A top Hezbollah operative and 18 of his bodyguards were on board. ~30 French military officers were also on board.
Rocket fire has been coming from Lebanon for some time. The usual fools have been yelling that it is from Hezbollah. This is not so. It is from from the Ahmad Jibril’s PFLP-GC, not Hezbollah.
The major Salafist group in the Sinai recently swore allegiance to ISIS. Scary.
Numerous social media posts have appeared of Palestinians, mostly in Gaza, swearing allegiance to ISIS.
The very heavy fighting in Rafah has mostly been right around the airport.
The heavy fighting in Beit Hanina has been to the north around the Agricultural College.
The battle for Shujaiyah is not over at all, despite Israeli claims of victory. Hamas keeps pouring in new reinforcements. There is still heavy fighting going on now amid the rubble. Hamas fought very dirty in Shejaiyah. Sometimes they would run at the IDF with a gun in one hand a baby in the other. At other times, young kids with guns were sent running towards IDF troops.
Fighting also continues along the border near Karni.
Heavy fighting in Beit Lahiya is mostly to the northwest of the area (not sure exactly where).
Fighting continues around Al Qarara north of Khan Younis, a fair distance inside Gaza.
The heavy fighting in Khan Younis is around a district called Kaza’a near the border fence.
The Golani Brigade is pulling out of Gaza to be replaced by reserves. Probable reason for pullout was heavy losses. Like Hamas and Islamic Jihad, Golani had serious losses (killed and wounded) in the officer corps. Golani is one of the finest units in the IDF.
Not only Hamas is shooting rockets. The PFLP has shot 10% of the rockets, but they are mostly short-range.
Undated:
The Institute for Palestine Studies admits that 180 minors died in the construction of Hamas’ tunnels. It is doubtful that these were kids; instead they were probably teenagers. Even before this was finished, other Palestinians were complaining about the child death toll, but Hamas kept using kids. Not just the IDF but also Hamas has the blood of quite a few Gazan kids on its hands.
Lebanon-Syria-Iran cadre training and armament lab structure for Palestinians: Many Palestinians leave Palestine regularly to train in Lebanese training camps. These are operated by PFLP-GC – basically a Iran-Syria proxy. Many of the trainers here are Syrian or Iranian. There are also many “labs” in Lebanon operated by the same folks. It is here that new missiles, drones, et al may be tested and constructed. There are also training camps in Syria itself for Palestinians, also operated under PFLP-GC command.
It is well known that Iran is the main supplier for Hamas.
The route for Iranian weapons to Gaza is as follows:
Route 1: Weapons by ship from Iran to the Sinai. Offload in Sinai. In Sinai there are many Hezbollah operatives. They have set up many cells in the Sinai among the Bedouins there. These people may be the Sinai salafi-jihadists, but I am not certain. Weapons are then transported by Bedouins to the Egypt-Gaza border, where tunnels under the Gaza-Sinai border are still working, though many have been shut down.
Route 2: Iran to Sudan. Weapons are either stored or even manufactured in Sudan, often in Khartoum. From there, they go overland to near Djibouti and into the Red Sea, presumably once again to Sinai via route above.

Roissy's Stupid PUA Site

Mr. Subservive:

Robert Stark is a real piece of work. He just got his ass handed to him by Roissy.

As if I care if Roissy, Tool of all Tools, hands anyone’s ass to anyone.
Roissy’s site is truly horrifying, and the man is a monster. He’s the biggest asshole in the known universe. Most of his commenters are orbiting him hoping to bask in the narcissistic glow he gives off. They are also trying to be an even bigger asshole than Roissy, and that’s probably not even possible. I mean not physically possible. I mean there is probably a law of physics that prevents any man from being a bigger dick than Roissy.
That Roissy is in his early 40’s (?) is particularly pathetic. No man should still be this angry and especially this mean that far into life.
By age 40, almost all humans have been kicked in the ass about a million times that they finally figured out that their shit stinks after all. Most normal levels of narcissism tend to fade around age 40.
By that I mean that it is normally for a teenage boy to be narcissistic. Many to most young men in their 20’s, especially the more successful ones, are insufferably arrogant assholes. In serious cases, the dickheadedness extends into the 30’s. Certainly there are a lot of extremely huge headed men from age 30-33 or so. I figure from age 33-40, this sort of thing slows down somewhat.
By age 40, there aren’t a whole lot of showboats anymore. Everyone’s been humbled one too many times. The only remaining narcissists after age 40 are the real hardcores, the true, pure pathological narcissists.
Roissy’s still got an ego bigger than the planet Jupiter, and he’s heading towards age 45. Massive red light. Roissy is severe narcissist. In fact, I suspect that Roissy, after reading him for years now, has Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Don’t fret now. The Net is full of NPD’s. You can’t blog unless you are fairly narcissistic already anyway.
That site simply bristles with sheer meanness. The commenters are the same way. Would you actually go to a party full of cumdrunk assholes like that? Would you dare set foot in a bar full of hotheaded young fools like that? I wouldn’t. I don’t cotton much to assholes.
Roissy’s lesson from the very start has been penultimate narcissism.
Be Like Me.
Follow Roissy, Your Leader.
Imitate The Roissy God.
Bow At His Feet.
Read His Roissy-Biblical Tomes.
Breathe Deep In The Overwhelming Essence Of Sheer Roissyness.
Since Roissy is an asshole, his main lesson since he started has been teaching young men to be all the dick you can be. Be an asshole. Be like Roissy. So you have a Roissy column, a belching retch of ugliness, sadism and assholery, and then you have the comments following, where all the commenters try to see if they out-dick even Roissy. Hey! It’s an asshole contest already!
Roissy unfortunately has started to butt his nasty little head into the comments, splattering little drops of cruelty disguised as wisdom here or there. He has to pop up in the comments threads to show you he’s still alive and to frighten you. You read one of his articles, and you are aghast. “Please tell me this guy died after he wrote this!,” you think. “Please don’t tell me I have to share the planet with this Tool!”
Like those zombies in The Night of the Living Dead that can hardly be killed, he pops up like an evil little jack in the box in the comments. Each time we wince at his bile, our heart falls because humanity sinks a little bit lower with every scribble of Roissy’s.
This is a very disheartening website.
I wonder just how many older men hang out on these PUA sites? Seems like it’s mostly young testosterone addicts looking for a score from what I can tell. I would think 95% of older guys would be turned off sheer viciousness of the men on that site. As a man gets older, he’s supposed to purge himself of the angry young man bile. An angry older man is particularly sad case. He’s also a heart attack waiting to happen.
The premise of Roissy’s entire site is completely stupid. Granted, the His Dickness has granted us some bits of genius in the Alpha – Beta – Omega hierarchy, but mostly this was just telling everyone what we already knew anyway but hadn’t formulated properly. But credit where it’s due, and many geniuses (yes, Roissy is a genius) are utterly horrific human beings. Read their Wikipedia entries if you don’t believe me.
But Roissy even gets the Alpha – Beta game all messed up.
Look. This is the way it goes. Probably in any unglued society, the Alphas cannot possibly make up more than 15-20% of the males.
Let us suppose you had a society full of Roissy addicts who had all somehow managed to reach the pinnacle of Alphaness. It would not make sense. Because no society can be all Alpha Male (at least I do not think so). In Arab and Middle Eastern, Russian, Iberian, Latin American and Filipino society, sure, you have a huge % of men playing the “Alpha” game. They look and act like Alphas (especially in Arab and Middle Eastern culture).
But even here, the same 80-20 rule must apply. Suppose a hot woman, instead of being approached by one high-value (Alpha) man a day, is now being approached by five or six high-value Alpha men a day? What’s she going to do? Bang all the studs and whore it up? You kidding? The 80-20 rule, hard and fast, will continue to apply.
In a society where all of the men act like Alpha Males, females will simply pick off the top ~20%, the most Alpha of the Alphas and most Sigma of the Sigmas, relegate the rest of the regular Alphas to Beta, Delta or Gamma and toss the least Alpha of the Alphas (who are nevertheless very much Alpha men) to the Omega bin.
See how this works? In a culture where all the guys act like Omegas (some NE Asian cultures seem like this) the females will simply cream off the top 20%, the highest and most “Alpha” of the Omega Crew, and cock carousel them. The nerdiest of the nerds, the Omegas of Omegas, will get tossed back as by-catch. The vast majority of the Omegas, exhibiting normal levels of Omeganess, will be placed in the Betasphere.
The sheer insanity of Roissy’s site though, and really all of the lunatic PUAsphere (I include Roosh here too), is that the site is based on the insane premise that any man can be an Alpha/Sigma. All he has to do is try.
Nonsense! The pool of high-value men in any society will always be relegated to the top ~20% of men, the Alphas and Sigmas. There are probably no feral societies where this will not be true. It’s almost as good as the Law of Gravity.
Only 20% of us are going to win.
Only 20% of us can win.
Roissy’s site is horrifyingly cruel. They have set up a world where only 20% can win, and fully 80% most lose. These figures will never change no matter how hard anyone plays. How base can you get?
Maybe 20% of men are Alphas/Sigmas, and that number probably cannot increase no matter what. Probably ~15%? of men are tossed to the sexual round file, the sorrowful Omegas. There will probably always be ~15% Omegas no matter how hard anyone tries. And in between, 2/3 of all men, the vast majority of us living our lives of quiet desperation, jonesing for a vicarious thrill fix anywhere we can madly grab one, are doomed, nay, destined, to live the lives of the Beta Type.
60-70% of men in any society will have to fall into the Beta, Delta or Gamma categories. In any society where women roam free and undomesticated, this is how the chips will fall. The Betasphere, the Betas, Deltas and Gammas, are simply average men.
Regular men, everyday men, the guy next door, your Dad, your uncle, your brother, Gramps, your boss, your best friend from high school. Most of the males we straight men have loved most in our cut-short lives are simply ordinary Joes, fully undeserving of Roissy’s acidic spittle.
And what in God’s name is wrong with being an ordinary man among men? Precisely nothing.
Yet no personage is more reviled on Roissy’s moronic site, or Roosh’s, or any of the others, than this lowly Beta, our fathers and our sons, our brothers and our cousins, all of the men that make up our typical quotidian lives we tap out before we die – every one of these great ordinary men are treated with utter contempt on PUA sites, as if they are the lowest of contemptible worms.
This doesn’t make sense. It’s irrational in a game where 80% must lose by statistical law to hate the inevitable losers.
Someone has to win; someone has to lose.
Life goes on.
This, then, is the fatal flaw of the PUAsphere, the lunatic notion that any man can be Alpha or that all men can be Alphas, if only they would just try.
And every man on Earth can be rich, too? When everyone is a millionaire, $1 million and $1.69 would buy you a Slurpee at a 7-11.
Granted there are things to be learned from the most awful of people. And Roissy’s site is awash with what I might call ugly truths. The things about life that are so ugly and cruel and vicious, yet nevertheless so true that we cannot ignore them. On a lode-laden mountain, the ugliest, most dangerous, muddiest, most savage spring floods can bring forth some excellent nuggets worth a pretty penny.
Take what you want or need from these ugly sites, but don’t get caught up in the spite. And don’t forget to wear some face protection on PUA sites. The sheer malign hatred emanating off these sites can literally fly off the screen and pound your face. That stuff stings like acid.
One final note, that this cold-hearted sociopathic character known as Roissy has picked up the cruelest of economic philosophies, Libertarianism, should come as no surprise.
That he added a shocking and virulent form of White Nationalist racism against NAM’s to complement the generous helpings of misogyny he serves up is no shocker either.
Haters gotta hate. In mental health, one notion is that fear spreads. Someone starts out afraid of spiders, and the terror slowly spreads until they are nearly afraid of their shadow, so agoraphobic that and can barely go outside anymore. This is proven well enough to me anyway.
But if fear spreads, then it’s wicked brother Cain, hate, must spread too. People start out hating the guy who beat them at basketball, and eight years down the road, you’re got Eliot Rodger with a semi-auto mowing down blond hotties at the beach.

Four Friends of Mine Who Went to West Africa

Steve writes:

RL: ‘People act like there is a difference between “a few Nigerian scammers” and “the vast majority of the good Nigerian people.” As far as I can tell, most of the people in that part of the world are liars, thieves, scammers, criminals and morally depraved lowlifes. “West African scammer” just means “normal West African person.”’
I’m willing to believe the truth is somewhere in between but this last statement can’t be true. There’s no way the norm is to be engaged in scamming. I don’t believe it.
I’d love to see you travel to Nigeria and India and spend some time there and see if your opinion changes.

I would not go to any of those countries, especially Ghana or Nigeria, if my life depended on it. Way to chaotic and dangerous. I am not particularly interested in visiting shitholes full of dangerous psychopaths.
I will never go to India. A good friend of mine, a young woman, went there, and she was terrified the whole time as guys creeped on her in a horrible way 24-7. She stupidly went home with two Indian animals, and the guys spent the whole night trying to rape her. Would not take no for an answer. Half the time she was there, she was sick as Hell. People say that most travelers to India get sick. I have heard of US Indians who say that every time they go home to India they get sick.
Fuck that country.
If I went to either of those shitholes, I am sure that I would hate them even worse than I do now as seeing is believing.
I know four people who went to Nigeria or that general region.

  1. One man went there on safari and also to track down a woman who had ripped him off. She stole $2,300 from him and didn’t pay back any of it when he visited.
  2. A woman I know went to one of those shitholes, I forget which, and she had 24-48 hours of total nightmare. I believe she went there to try to track down some guy who stole money from her. There were repeated attempts to steal from her, kidnap her, assault her and rape her. She kept trying to find people she could trust, but they always turned out to be criminals too. Finally she ended up at a police station, but they were worse than useless as they were basically criminals too. Somehow she found some people she could trust and managed to get out of the country. She said she was lucky to get out alive.
  3. I know a woman who went to Nigeria, and nearly as soon as she stepped off the plane, a Nigerian woman assaulted her in the bathroom and tried to rob her. She said the you can smell the city all the way up in the air, and the whole place smells like rotting garbage.
  4. My friend, a Black attorney, spent some time in Nigeria and Ghana trying to invest in factories with local partners. I am not sure how it all worked out. He absolutely hated West Africans and said 98% of the men look like criminals. He said in Ghana most to all of the men look like they just stepped out of a maximum security prison. He was terrified the whole time he was there, and after a while he traveled in a vehicle with an armed bodyguard at all times. He despised West Africans and regarded them as the scum of the Earth even though he was African-American himself. This is a common attitude. We had a number of African-Americans in our anti-scammer group, and almost all of them utterly despised West Africans and wanted nothing to do with them. The African-Americans acted like they thought the Africans were a different race entirely. They felt zero kinship with African people.

I did hear of several women who traveled to Ghana for whatever reason and apparently did not have many problems. However, they all said that the poverty was horrible.

Suicide Bombers Caught on Video


Chechen  suicide bomber at Domededovo Airport, Moscow. Heavy casualties. January 24, 2011.

Pakistani Taliban attack Sufis at a Sufi shrine in Lahore, Pakistan. Takfiris consider Sufis to be heretics, so they kill them. 42 killed, 180 wounded. From Spring 2010.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gE7cW23ak6Q
Suicide car bomb attack on Afghan troops in Kabul. 3 soldiers killed and 17 wounded in a series of Taliban attacks right in the heart of the capital. Early 2010.
 

Russian security forces raid a home in Ingushetia where rebels are holed up. Inside they are attacked by a female suicide bomber. 4 rebels were killed, 3 police wounded. A lot of people are saying that explosion doesn’t look very big and it’s obviously just a stun grenade, but this is not so. For one thing, no grenade gives off a blast that big it explodes. April 2010.

Suicide bomber attacks college in Baghdad. No one was hurt or killed except for the bomber. The men you see running at the start of the video are security forces who recognize that a bomber is about to attack them and are running for safety. April 2014.

Collapse of Industrial Civilization

Collapse of Industrial Civilization – Finding the Truth Beyond the American Holocaust.
Fantastic site written by xraymike79, who is a fine writer. The site is more or less leftwing without being crazy leftwing, which is hard to find nowadays. Optimists will not be happy here – the site is quite pessimistic and unfortunately for good reason. The commenters here are also great – more or less Lefties yet more or less sane at the same time. Both Mike and his commenters are very bright and they link to all sorts of great stuff all over the Net.
Truly a great find. Pay Mike a visit if you wish. I do not think you will be sorry.
 

The Indian Personality: Superiority and Inferiority Complexes Intertwined

A fine new Indian Hindu commenter named Janardhan has appeared on our blog, and he repeats some of the same things that other insightful Hindus such as ILOR, Rahul and Pranav have said. This shows us that not all Indian Hindus are bad people and that some of them are capable of looking inwards and trying to better their society. I consider both Rahul and Pranav at least to be strong Indian patriots who simply want the best for their country. As they see it, getting the best for India is going to require some massive changes, hence their critical patriotism.

Hindus have a strange mix of superiority and inferiority complexes. Deep down they massage their ego about how their civilization was ‘da greatest’ with a total ignorance about other civilizations and their achievements. According to Hindus, Ancient India compared to the rest of the world is equivalent to comparing the city of Vienna during Mozart with highlanders in Papua New Guinea. As if Ancient India was like this huge Vienna while the rest of the world were primitive.
But during the last centuries they were first enslaved by Muslims from Central Asia/Persia (whom they consider savage bloodthirsty barbarians ignoring the intellectual side of Islamic civilization which itself was plagiarized to a good extent from Greek learning) and then the Europeans.
One difference was that in the case of Islamic invaders they could hide under the carpet the invaders’ intellectual side, and they are thus dehumanized as savage bloodthirsty monsters (this label is justified though as the Islamic rulers were quite brutal). But when the Europeans, especially the British, came, they could not ignore their obvious technological superiority with their steam engines and telegraphs.
Thus the conflicting superiority/inferiority complex feelings.
They were as per their myth Numero Uno Civilization in the world, but now they are nearly at the bottom. White people with their strange but seeming superior looks and behavior give us an inferiority complex. Besides, even the Japanese/ Koreans are way ahead of us, and now the Chinese are racing ahead. Mainland Indians just cannot accept the rise of China: “Those Chinkis like the Chinkis of Nepal and North Eastern Indians going ahead of us, not possible,” we say.
Thus the desire to prove ancient India being as technologically advanced as the modern world since the modern technological world is 90% a White creation and we cannot fathom a people other than us could have done so.
I think this is same with the Arabs with their Islam. Islam, the last word of God and having an Arab as its last and greatest prophet, has fallen behind the White nonbelievers. Oh, the horror.
Blacks, well most Indians consider Blacks as some savage monkey people anyways.
I would say we Indians are some of the most racist people in the world, but our racism is very subtle.

As someone who works in mental health, I would like to point out the obvious. A person with both a massive superiority and inferiority complex going at the same time is a common creature. This is typical for Cluster B personality types: especially Narcissistic and Borderline Personality Disorders. But it associated more with narcissism than anything else.
In fact, all proper analyses of narcissism begin with the supposition that what is going on in narcissism is often a huge inferiority complex which is apparently being compensated for by its opposite, a huge superiority complex. My view is that the worse the narcissist’s inferiority complex, the greater their superiority complex must be to compensate for it. Whereas if one feels only a bit inferior, one has only to feel a bit superior to compensate as all human beings are trying to equalize things and get at what I call the “zero state” of perfect equilibrium where everything is ok.
Many analyses of the Indian personality on this site have noted the profound narcissism apparent in most Indian Hindus. In many cases, this also looks like solipsism, but then narcissism and solipsism tend to go together anyway (Look at the Jews, the most solipsistic people on Earth).
