the blood in the trenches does not have time to dry.....

Since Russia’s surprise decision to voluntarily withdraw from west bank Kherson in the first week of November, there has been little in the way of dramatic changes to the frontlines in Ukraine. In part, this reflects the predictable late autumn weather in Eastern Europe, which leaves battlefields waterlogged and clogged with mud and greatly inhibits mobility. For hundreds of years, November has been a bad month for attempting to move armies any sort of significant distance, and like clockwork we started to see videos of vehicles stuck in the mud in Ukraine.

crazy mad loony dumb idiotic dangerous useless warmongering stupid imbecilic senile president......

Critics of the US empire have spent months compiling mountains of evidence showing that the empire knowingly provoked the war in Ukraine. Supporters of the US empire have spent months posting dog memes and accusing strangers of being paid by Putin. It’s clear who’s in the right.

So does everyone else in the world get a vote on whether their lives should be risked in an offensive to control who governs Crimea? Or will the Biden administration just be making that call on behalf of all living creatures?

cartoon twists with a zest of leonisky......

SOMETIMES I FEEL THAT SOME CARTOONISTS CHOOSE THE EASY MAINSTREAM PATH BECAUSE IT'S IN THE INTEREST OF THEIR MASTERS (THE EDITORS WHO DO THE BIDDING FOR THE OWNERS). I CAN'T BLAME THEM: IT FEEDS THE BEAST OF DISINFORMATION WHICH MOST MEDIOCRE MASS MEDIA DE MIERDA, INCLUDING THE SMH, NEED TO STAY ALIVE AND PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR MUCH GOVERNMENTAL CRAP... ON MOST ISSUE, I LIFT MY LID TO THESE BRAVE CARTOONISTS...

the pentagon birdie.....

The leadership of the social media giant Twitter (access to this social network is prohibited in the Russian Federation on the basis of Article 15.3 of the Federal Law “On Information, Information Technologies and Information Protection”) stated before the New Year that it had long adhered to clear positions on the spread of American influence abroad, and in this regard, it works shoulder to shoulder with the Pentagon.

sheldrake or mandrake?......

DEALING WITH SHELDRAKE’s “SCIENTIFIC LUNACY” IS NOT AS STRAIGHT FORWARD AS SOME ENLIGHTENED PEOPLE MAKE OUT. 

SHELDRAKE DEALS IN “MORPHIC RESONANCE” WHICH FOR MANY (ALL) SCIENTISTS IS AKIN TO WITCHCRAFT… THE STARTING POINT OF HIS THEORY IS QUITE BANAL, REALLY:

“memory is inherent in nature”.  

NO-ONE, NOT EVEN THE MOST INSANE MAD PRIEST OR LOONY SCIENTIST CAN ARGUE AGAINST THIS. DNA IS THE MEMORY OF LIFE. IF DNA WENT RANDOM WE WOULD NOT EXIST. IF DNA WENT TOO CREATIVE, WE’D BE GODZILLAS…. BEFORE THIS, IT WAS THE BIBLE OR THE K’RAN THAT CARRIED OVER THE SOCIAL MEMORY AND STILL DOES IN SOME WAY, WRONGLY OR RIGHTLY.

japan enlists as washington’s spear-carrier.........

It is always the same when Japanese premiers travel to Washington to summit at the White House. Nothing seems to happen and nobody pays much attention even when important things happen, when we should all pay attention, and, when we do pay passing attention, we usually get it wrong. In January 1960, when Premier Nobusuke Kishi visited Washington, President Eisenhower blessed the war criminal and signed a security treaty the Japanese public vigorously opposed. That week Newsweek marked Kishi down as “that friendly, savvy Japanese salesman.”

climate disaster, death sentence, insanity........

Tell it like it is, António: ‘climate disaster, death sentence, insanity, inconsistent with human survival’. Thank goodness for chocolate and birds.

Was any progress made at the last COP meeting in Egypt?

Were there game-changing, climate-action breakthroughs or was it simply more talk culminating in yet another failure (Greta Thunberg’s ‘Blah, blah, blah’)?

more than a million shells.......

Ukraine will struggle to make good on its promise to drive Russian forces out of its former territory, US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley stated on Friday. While civilian officials in Washington insist that Kiev must keep fighting, Milley has repeatedly questioned the chances of success.

“President Biden, President Zelensky, and most of the leaders of Europe have said this war is likely to end in a negotiation,” Milley said during a meeting of the US-led Defense Contact Group at Ramstein Air Base in Germany on Friday. “From a military standpoint, this is a very, very difficult fight,” he added.

powering the future.....

ON A SMALL PLANET WITH 8 BILLION PEOPLE, OF WHICH HALF IS — OR WILL BE — DEMANDING, PLANNING, WORKING ON ACQUIRING THE AVERAGE WESTERN BOURGEOIS LIFESTYLE BY THE END OF NEXT WEEK, THE EQUATION TO POWERING THE FUTURE IS DIRE. SICKO. WE’RE DEAD. CIVILISATION IS BLOATED. KAPUT. UNSUSTAINABLE....

GLOBAL WARMING IS POSING A FEW CHALLENGES THAT ARE MORE THAN DIFFICULT. 

IT CAN BE “PROVEN” THAT THE WESTERN INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION HAS INDUCED AT LEAST 70 PER CENT OF THE ANTHROPOGENIC ORIGIN OF THE PRESENT WARMING. MEANWHILE, THE HUMAN WELL-BEING INDEX IS STRONGLY LINKED TO RELEASES OF WARMING GASES AND THIS WELL-BEING INDEX INCLUDE EASY TRANSPORT, HEATING, COOLING, HOLIDAYS, INDUSTRIES, CULTURES, ENTERTAINMENT AND HUSBANDRY OF CATTLE FOR FOOD. 

english humour..... is the British economy so smooth?

"Mr. Bean goes on a treasure hunt after finding a map in Mrs. Wicket's attic. The 2nd place is in the owl's tree then the 3rd place is an Australia park. then mr bean rides an airplane he found the treasure but the plane just fly after that mr bean borrows woman lipstick to pretend sick so the fly was cancelled."

I don't know if I should cry or laugh.......

 

EU foreign policy commissioner Josep Borrell said on Friday that the West must keep sending weapons to Kiev, warning those who think Russia has lost or is doing poorly that Moscow has a history of winning long wars.

“Russia is a great country, a great nation that is used to fighting to the end, almost losing and then recovering,” Borrell said in a speech in Madrid, bringing up the 1812 invasion by Napoleon Bonaparte’s French empire and the 1941 invasion by Adolf Hitler’s Germany as historical examples of this.

“It would be absurd to think that Russia has lost the war or that its military is incompetent,” Borrell added.

He claimed that so far Moscow “has been losing the war but it still has enormous strength and capacity to continue [fighting].”

not the only way to go.....

CIA Director William Burns quietly visited the Ukrainian capital for a classified meeting with President Vladimir Zelensky and his intelligence apparatus, multiple outlets reported on Thursday. Besides sharing Washington's intelligence analysis, the official also allegedly warned that US military aid could wane in the coming months amid opposition from Republicans, who recently took control of Congress.

Burns arrived in Kiev sometime late last week and discussed “his expectations for what Russia is planning militarily in the coming weeks and months,” emphasizing “the urgency of the moment on the battlefield” for Ukrainian forces, according to the Washington Post.

la France mon general is un pays de constipés....

Russia is a "great nation" which is now actively seeking a new "destiny," French President Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday. The conflict between Moscow and Kiev has become part of this search, the French leader believes, adding that the West would only see a lasting peace if it contributed to this process through a dialogue with Russia.

"Russia as a power … is searching for a [new] self and [is] looking for a destiny," Macron told Spain’s daily El Pais in a lengthy interview. "Russia is a … great nation, territorially and historically," he pointed out, also calling Russians a "great people." Macron admitted that Russia’s revival in the 1990s after the collapse of the Soviet Union was a "very difficult" period.

gus and his crystal ball.......

IT IS ALWAYS STUPID TO MAKE PREDICTIONS. SO LET ME BE STUPID FOR A WHILE.

EXCEPT FOR A FULL-ON NATO/US INSPIRED WORLD WAR THREE, “UKRAINE” — THE NAZI GALICIAN SIDE — IS GOING TO LOOSE THE MILITARY INTERVENTION CONFLICT. WE KNOW THAT A WW3 WOULD HAVE NO WINNERS. THIS IS A GIVEN, UNLESS ONE IS MORE STUPID THAN UNCLE GUS.

IT WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT, I BELIEVE, TO SAY THAT THE BOFFINS AT THE PENTAGON ARE WORKING OVERTIME TO WORK OUT A FEW “WINNING” SCENARIOS. 

IN RELATION TO WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING ON THE GROUND, NOT THE PRESENT WESTERN PROPAGANDA, THE PENTAGON (THE HEADQUARTER OF NATO/EU/UK/ETC) WOULD HAVE TO FIND WAYS TO SPIN A VICTORY OF SORT WHILE COMING TO TERMS WITH REALITY.

 

the dollar religioso....

The US is at war, and the dollar is at risk of imminent collapse. Australia’s lobbying of the United States as a good ally should focus on these issues above all else.

I am aware that many readers will say oh dear, you must not talk like that. But it’s sensible to discuss the distance to the ground before we jump off the cliff. And a lot has already gone over the cliff.

In the narrow spectrum of security, focused on war and peace, the largest problems we cannot afford to ignore right now are as follows:

War elements are increasingly out of control, In Europe and elsewhere. Clausewitz was right, war drives out policy and pursues its own ends.
