And two updates in May and July 2022
Yes…war is terrible and dirty and intense and traumatic. Except for psychopaths it is enjoyable for very few, despite the smiles and cheers on some videos and photos. And yes, war crimes are committed…far too many. By these psychopaths, but also by ordinary soldiers and armed civilians who go crazy in these intense circumstances. No excuses, but the image of a frische fröhliche Krieg is only propaganda by and for gullible people.
No, Russia did not want to conquer Kiev or kidnap President Zelensky with the first attack. It could not do so with the number of troops deployed. The aim with this quick in-depth attack and attacks on the border and from ‘Donbass’ was to force a quick peace settlement…of course under conditions favourable to Russia…and thus prevent further warfare. It seemed to work for a while, but the Ukrainian government Zelensky allowed itself…just like the governments during the civil wars in the former Yugoslavia and especially Bosnia…to be seduced by especially the American promises to reject that and to continue fighting. The Russians persisted for a while…promised and threatened some more…but eventually withdrew again. Russia, Putin and team visibly disappointed and deeply frustrated…especially by American-British subversion again and EU docility in this…again. Which was of course propagandistically exploited to the maximum being a painful Russian defeat. Unfortunately also by too many of my colleagues (for many of them after all ‘he who pays the piper calls the tune’). More critical comments were mostly absent.
The strategy that Putin’s Russia subsequently chose is, in many respects and according to the circumstances that they have to reckon with and that they still hope for and want to achieve, logical and ‘smart’. With all the mistakes, misdeeds and failures that come with it. And how long this proxy war is going to last as a result. With adverse consequences again…such as Finland and Sweden’s foolish NATO membership. And as far as you can speak of ‘smart’ in a nasty deadly proxy war like this. A conflict and proxy war with…just like Afghanistan and especially Iraq…again destructive and disastrous consequences for involved country(s), region and also the world. But I already explained that the real instigators of also this project, larger conflict against Russia…and against the EU(!!)…and this proxy war in Ukraine, the US and the UK and collaborating and gullible other governments and supporters, were and are not really bothered by it.
So, I can explain and set out why this Russian strategy is now logical and ‘smart’. But in doing so, I am playing into the hands of the real instigators and their loyal collaborators and gullible believers here. And although I…see my disclaimer…am not a fanboy of Putin’s Russia or dictatorships in general, I also do not wish to help these egocentric malicious nationalist instigators of this…again…destructive and disastrous war…which has shattered the European dream and is rendering the EU brain death…to succeed in their project and malicious intent. The sooner they…as in Afghanistan and Iraq…lose again the ‘less bad’ for us Europe and the world. So I keep this analysis to myself and will at most share it with those who I trust and who share my critical view and opinion in this matter. And I watch with a mix of sadness, pain, disappointment but also cynical gloating and bewilderment at so much gullibility and stupidity how this tragic conflict develops. It took 20 years with Srebrenica and Afghanistan before my (unfortunately!!) right was proved…I hope that this time it will be much sooner. Better for the (still to come) victims, for the world, better for us Europeans…
Update May 2022:
For eight years only?! ya right..🤥🙃🤡
“United States, Canada, Britain…other allies”…
Although, as far as I know, Canada was less actively and ideologically involved in the larger US-UK project and policy against Russia..and the EU. Then more so Australia..
“To get the Ukrainians ready for this kind of war…”
Yes because the US knew this was going to happen one day. Not because the Russians were intended to do so. Putin’s Russia clearly wanted to prevent it. Although they said they would intervene if their red line in Ukraine would be crossed. And that was exactly what the US and UK and sympathisers did in the direction of 24 April. They provoked it to this point..all peace attempts were torpedoed…deliberately so. And there were reasons to do so now…
The reality and real developments of the past decades are being ‘leaked’ more and more now. Most of it from loose talk and grandstanding from victory voting. Like John Kirby here…who is also known for that. Though most will miss it here in EU and gullibly think it’s all genuine and sincere what US and UK and their supporters do towards Ukraine and against ‘that evil Putin’s Russia’…
Just like in Afghanistan 2001-2021 and Iraq 2003>…
Update July 2022
And as I expected, the deliberately provoked conflict with Russia..and thus also directed against the EU!!..resulting in a nasty and disastrous proxy war in Ukraine is now deliberately prolonged. The strategic goal is already achieved for the instigators US and UK and their collaborators within NATO and EU. So why prolong it now?
> So that the EU will soon be brain dead and (thus) not ‘their’ NATO;
> The conflict also weakens federal Russia further so that later on uprisings might break out there (and…again…to be organised by the US and UK as in the past) due to the dissatisfaction of citizens with bad conditions (which does not seem to be too bad at the moment);
> To further strengthen NATO with new members like Sweden and Finland;
> Time and thus the chance for more nasty deadly incidents with many civilian victims that can be attributed to the Russians…or false flags organised by themselves…in order to fix this Cold War and anti-Russian mood in the European mindset;
> As many arms contracts as possible and those for previously expensive shale gas LNG and oil ‘Made in America’ and crumbs for UK and Australia (coal they didn’t get to sell before to China) and other Arab allies, before a kind of cold peace will be established again in again divided Europe like with the previous Cold War (which never ended in Washington and London and NATO HQs);
> A warning to the regime in China that they are prepared to fight a war and long-term deployment and supply in this kind of proxy war or direct war with each other, for example around Taiwan or other strategic location for US-Pax Americana 2.0.
> And what I forget…
So no..the goal of US and UK and collaborating sympathisers here in NATO and EU is not for Ukraine to win this proxy war with Russia..is chanceless..except in their propaganda and statements by paid sympathising ‘experts’. The goal is to prolong it so long that not NATO but EU is thus brain death and new Cold War deeply ingrained in our thinking and life here in the EU.
For me an unacceptable outcome so I fight within the boundaries of the system (unfortunately decayed and therefore in need of recalibration) that I adore and defend (Democracy, Rule of Law and Freedoms) for a peace plan for this ugly and disastrous proxy war in Ukraine and the survival and strengthening of an undivided autonomous and strong EUrope!!!
And the these days so needed disclaimer …
