DJ-again-pandemics need to be viewed against their background. Mosr historical pandemics did see wars as a background-worsening also economy...Climate change also is NOT new...

The fall of the West Roman Empire may partly be explained by pandemics and higher water levels making Roman roads/fortresses less useable...

I follow pandemic news in the general discussion-monthly section. I will start a topic on seismic/climate here as well...extreme weather and increase of seismic events are both climate change linked-just as pandemics...the "mega-mix" is worsening the health crisis...

-In this section-Code Black ???? we are still not in an OPEN NATO-Russia war...but in fact we are already in a major "west-rest confrontation" with economy (energy currencies) as very major frontlines...The 'rest" trying to limit the west-mostly the US-to continu its wars against Russia, Iran...even more covert China...

A look at the frontlines for an update;

Ukraine [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_dNQ1wMJc0[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_dNQ1wMJc0 Military Summary;MS;

Zelenski visits Poland. Russian defense line in Zaporozhye. Military Summary And Analysis 2023.04.05

DJ Maybe the major part of the MS evaluation/claim is Poland stating Poland and Ukraine should be seen as a form of union...[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/stoltenberg-pledges-ukraine-will-become-member-nato[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/stoltenberg-pledges-ukraine-will-become-member-nato 

MS-in short/my view; Ukraine preparing offensives-wants Polish guarantees if Ukraine losses get to high...In fact Poland may have given zelensky a (signed) promise Polish  (a.o.) forces move in if Ukraine offensives go wrong...DJ-Poland may already have tens-of-thousends Polish volunteers fighting in Ukraine...The main reason Ukraine is still able to fight is Polish/via Poland NATO support...

My view; IF (!) Ukraine would be able to start a major offensive Russia could attack from/with Belarus. Poland/Baltics may start a war with Belarus...

NATO still -officially- NOT involved; it is a Polish(and Baltics)-Ukraine deal...De facto NATO/US is pushing for this deal pulling Poland into this war...

One of Ukraine major problems is supplies, modern weapons...Poland getting openly involved could change that picture...It would be a very serious escalation...

[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/subscribers-only-classified-secret-military-planning-docs-leaked-ukraine-war-invade-russia-itself[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/subscribers-only-classified-secret-military-planning-docs-leaked-ukraine-war-invade-russia-itself ;

Both the US and NATO repeatedly claim they are not "participants" in the Ukraine/Russia conflict.  Documents classified as "SECRET"- shown below- tell a very different story.  These documents also reveal PLANS TO INVADE RUSSIA ITSELF!

DJ-Hal Turner is trying to get more subscribers/donations...but I think he may have a point...Ukraine could be used by NATO to start an "Ukraine" invasion into Russia...In fact most of the weapons and soldiers may be not from Ukraine...To start a major war you need energy, money...that part is under attack from "the rest"...(De-dollar-ization...)

-[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/idf-chief-israel-is-ready-to-attack-iran-and-does-not-need-u-s-help[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/idf-chief-israel-is-ready-to-attack-iran-and-does-not-need-u-s-help 

[url]https://southfront.org/kiev-forces-spotted-firing-israeli-cluster-mortar-rounds/[/url] or https://southfront.org/kiev-forces-spotted-firing-israeli-cluster-mortar-rounds/ and 

[url]https://southfront.org/syria-warns-of-total-escalation-after-fourth-israeli-attack/[/url] or https://southfront.org/syria-warns-of-total-escalation-after-fourth-israeli-attack/ 

DJ-Iran is a strategic ally of Russia, China and de facto India, Pakistan, Türkiye...Saudi Arabia is moving towards BRICS/SCO...so the US needs to "break" EurAsian integration...

Blowing up Nordstream was one part of the plan, destroying Russian-Iran-India, China-Iran-EU trade route is another part of the US "strategy"....

Part of the US plans may be a second front against Russia/Iran-Azerbaijan could fit in such a plan however Moldova and Georgia already refused to be destroyed for US goals...Azerbaijan also may think twice...it has its conflicts with Armenia but escalating it would mean war with all major powers in the region...

Can Israel destroy Iran nuclear installations ? DJ-YES...however Israel "could face total destruction" as a price...the only ally it has for such an action would be the US. But the US may NOT be in a position to limit much of "the regions" reaction after an all out Israel attack on Iran nuclear installations...US carriers in the Mediterranean, US bases in the region, will face a major attack...

Will Israel destroy Iran nuclear installations ? DJ-I doubt it...the price for Israel would be to high...Israel wants to have "workable" relations with its neighbours..Israeli terror attacks on Palestinians make relations with "the region" and EU already becoming worse...

-Taiwan...The US did recieve a Taiwan "political leader" [url]https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202304/1288599.shtml[/url] or https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202304/1288599.shtml ;

Multiple Chinese authorities including China’s top legislature, the Taiwan Work Office of CPC Central Committee, Chinese defense ministry and Chinese foreign ministry firmly opposed and condemned the latest meeting between the regional leader of China’s Taiwan island and US House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Wednesday in California, vowing to take resolute and effective measures to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity, in response to the seriously erroneous acts of collusion between the US and Taiwan secessionist authorities. 

DJ, China invited the Australian PM for a visit to Bejing...with lots of countries -the rest- now breaking with the US$-"west" countries like Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines need "securities" from Russia, China, India...

There is discussion on the Japan position...Japan is ignoring the US-price cap on the oil price...buying energy from Russia..the Japan PM visited Ukraine as a "balance" to keep the US satisfied...Asia, BRICS, is a market Japan, South Korea can simply not ignore...China, India are major global economies...together they are more important then the US. Japan nationalism is also maybe becoming more anti-US...

In a war Japan could face China, Russia AND Korea...it would very likely mean lots of land moving into the hands of those countries...far worse then the Kuril Island/Sachalin "disagreement" Japan now has with Russia...

-









European clowns landing in China will be politely dismissed - at best. Zero sovereignty = zero respect. With business CEOs is another story: both sides will talk business. With priorities set by Beijing.

and 

Virtually all of Africa is getting closer and closer to China and Russia. Cue to the Exceptionalists sending that Kamala thing on a charm offensive to what they patronizingly call "the dark continent". I'll be VERY diplomatic: it was not exactly a resounding success.

DJ-my view-western political "leaders" have lost contact with reality...The EU did have a mild winter-but the winter of 2023-24 could be colder, and energy reserves may have run out...

Lots of countries want an end to endless wars and blame the US for those wars...US/western "sanctions" damage the west to such a level it is becoming self destruction...

The major worry however should be "hardline idiots" in the US, UK, Poland (most) still pushing for more war...that could end up in a nuclear war...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/why-most-world-isnt-board-nato-russia-war[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/why-most-world-isnt-board-nato-russia-war 

Broad Opposition to War

There have been protest demonstrations occurring in Germany, France, the Czech Republic, Greece, Spain, Great Britain, Belgium, Austria, Italy, Albania, Moldova, and others. European protests surrounding the anniversary of the start of the conflict notably span the Left-Right spectrum in opposing US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) imperialism as well as the economic hardships that have befallen ordinary Europeans against the backdrop of sanctions on Russia and the funding of Ukraine.

Italian port workers aligned with the Left protested in Genoa specifically to resist the use of Italian ports to supply arms deliveries to Ukraine. Meanwhile in France, demonstrations organized by the right-wing Les Patriotes party in various locations across the country called for France’s withdrawal from both NATO and the European Union.

In all cases, the people on the streets at these events identify involvement in the war as harmful to general economic well-being and have been expressing frustration with their countries’ acquiescence to these intergovernmental and supranational organizations in fueling the violence while simultaneously discouraging dialogue. Feelings of skepticism toward NATO, the European Union, and the United States have become increasingly vocal in Europe due to the way that western countries are handling the war. In the minds of many Europeans, their governments are recklessly following the will of Washington, which could lead them into a serious escalation to a wider war.

DJ-A final note; like with the pandemics, climate change "the west" is simply ignoring facts that do not fit in their political agenda...Ignoring reality for political reasons is unwise...has a very high price...Some claim the US-biden government is "left wing"...in general biden is seen as just another neo-con(servative) NOT "left wing"...

Further escalation of these biden-insane-wars will push up inflation, increase de-dollarization hitting the US even harder, widen the gap between Europe and the US...present European governments-in general-are already in crisis...The NL, France, German "leaders" de facto lost public support...now hang on to their posts...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Russia Pushes Ukriane West Bakhmut; No German Troops Ukraine, Indian PM Modi Meets Patrushev, Poles Protest Zelensky Topic 809 https://twitter.com/BhadraPunchline/s...

in short;

-AM doubts if Ukraine is able to start any major offensive

-Germany has reached its limits in what it can do for Ukraine (so)

-zelensky visited Poland-Polish farmers not happy with Poland importing Ukraine agriculture products and selling it as EU products...decreasing prises for Polish farmers

-Also Polish military, public, fed up with an extremist government pushing Poland into a major crisis...

-Patrushev and a Russian oil-"czar" visited India PM Modi; India will get Russian energy at low prices...DJ-No doubt there was also talks on securing/improving oil routes from Russia to India via Iran.

US Forces Under Fire in Syria: Illegal Occupation Enters Dangerous Phase

- US engineered political unrest in Syria (and the rest of the Arab World) in 2011 after preparing opposition groups and militants years in advance; - US intervened in Syria in 2014 to ensure armed proxies completed US-backed regime change; - Russia's invitation by Syria in 2015 began irreversible defeat of US proxies; - Today, US troops are increasingly isolated in eastern Syria as US weapons disappear in Ukraine or are stockpiled for coming war with China, and as Washington's regional allies work with Russia/China to resolve long-standing conflicts; - The US cannot maintain proxy wars in Ukraine, Syria, and over the island province of Taiwan.

DJ-We could be moving towards "a-symetrical warfare"-US pushing for escalation in Ukraine now may face Russia-Iran/Iraq-Syria kicking the US out of the Middle East, China making clear under international law Taiwan is part of China (even the official US view...only the US is doing something else...). 

The US is NOT able to fight wars on three frontlines; Ukraine, Syria and Taiwan..."the rest of the west" can not do that much...

Both ursula von der leyen and macron are now in Bejing/China...the hard line China now is showing may be the Chinese answer to the "puppets" supposed to represent European democracy...DJ-The protests in France seem to become very violent...may see people getting killed...

Other countries soon may face same kinds of protests against a "political elite" not working for the common citizen....

COVERT INTEL - FROM INSIDE ISRAELI CABINET MEETING

(Regular public Updates will continue for non-subscribers beneath the Green Shaded area below)

{MPRESTRICTION IDS="1,2,3,4,5,6"}

The discussion inside the Israeli Cabinet Meeting is deadly serious.  All factions of the Knesset are offering their full support to the government for a "harsh" response. Israel is now preparing for "several days of intense fighting"; IDF is, at this moment, presenting Israeli political leadership with several retaliation options.

{/mprestriction}

UPDATE 3:15 PM EDT --

Northern airspace of Israel closed to civilian traffic.

Minister Israel Katz, member of the political-security cabinet, in the main edition: the situation calls for a tough response. The state of Lebanon bears the responsibility for what happens in its territory

South Lebanon residents should stay away from Hezbollah military sites, says Israel's ex-intel chief

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah warns of a strong and swift response should there be any “Zionist attacks on Lebanese soil.”

***** BULLETIN *****

Israel has prepared an unprecedented target list in Lebanon.  IDF's response to today's rocket fire from Lebanese territory will be very powerful.

According to the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar, UNIFIL troops of the UN peacekeeping force are reportedly vacating their positions near the Israeli border.

Public BOMB shelters in all regions of Western Galilee have been opened.

 

***** FLASH *****

Concern in Israel: U.S. weapons purchased from the Ukrainian Black Markets and from Afghanistan MAY be used against Israel.

Hezbollah already moving Fateh-110 mobile-launch missiles into striking position against Israel if it enters into a conflict with Lebanon.

MORE:

Haifa is the biggest major Israeli city that is the nearest to Lebanon; its in Grad MLRS range and Hezbollah has thousands of them.

 

UPDATE 3:31 PM EDT --

CONFIRMED: The IDF will attack tonight in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon in response to the rocket launches towards Israel.”

(WHOA!   Intelligence Community Note: "Netanyahu is no longer in control. The new, ultraconservative government is.")

DJ, Israel did send [url]https://southfront.org/kiev-forces-spotted-firing-israeli-cluster-mortar-rounds/[/url] or https://southfront.org/kiev-forces-spotted-firing-israeli-cluster-mortar-rounds/ and kept attavking targets in Syria...

DJ-Both Russia-with so far a "red line" with Tel Aviv Army HQ and Iran have had enough...So-IF ! Israel would start invading Lebanon this war could escalate fast...

-------------

[url]https://southfront.org/ukrainian-pilots-target-druzhba-pipeline/[/url] or https://southfront.org/ukrainian-pilots-target-druzhba-pipeline/ not the best organized attack...still if it succeded could push up oil prices....

DJ-If transport capacity and demand are big enough both Russia and Iran will send/sell their energy to "friends"...Saudi Arabia/OPEC+ moving that way as well....

-------------

DJ-I think the situation in the Middle East could "explode" in the coming hours-with lots or fisks for further escalation...

ALL ABOARD THE BRI TRAIN China has come up with an all-in-one train ticketing system. Applies to over 140 countries that joined Belt and Road. All you need is an app. Servers handle requests from around the world in different languages. And you pay in... SWISS FRANCS.

the financial war goes on...So far no deaths reported in France uprising...

DJ

CODE RED IS HIGH RISK OF MAJOR ESCALATION OF CONFLICT

CODE BLACK IS MAJOR WAR BROKE OUT

DJ-just to "position" the present global crisis. The Ukraine is a major war...eventough the "open" war is supposed to be still between Ukraine and Russia...

[url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/04/is-netanyahoo-again-looking-for-war.html[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/04/is-netanyahoo-again-looking-for-war.html Netanyahu trying to silence widespread massive protests against his "legal reforms"....


#Israel attacked Was el-Ayn plane & close to Rashidiyeh camp in #Tyre, south of #Lebanon. No human casualties. Israel is avoiding #Hezbollah's response as deterrence is imposed. In #Gaza, Israel continues sporadic bombing. Palestinian resistance retaliated.  avoiding a large-scale war

DJ-very likely Israel Army still has a red line with the Russian base in Tartus-Syria. In the past Russia stayed out of the Iran-Israel conflict fights in Syria-Russia wanted to destroy US/NATO ally IS...keep Assad in power - in fact protect the south-west flank of Russia. Russia may have warned Israel against a major attack against Hizbollah/Lebanon.

In words the US may still support Israel...but in deeds -like Saudi Arabia- Israel may have decided Russia, China bring results...not more empty words...

DJ-I think we may see a mix of Israeli military action and diplomacy...very likely both Russia and China play a role. Israeli attacks on the Jerusalem mosq has to stop...may even push Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt towards war...In Islam Jerusalem is the third holiest place after Mecca and Medina...Israel can not afford to be at war with the Islamic world-eventough some hardliners are pushing for such a war...Pushing for a "Jewish" state with NO room for other religions...This form of extremism would be even to much for the "west"....

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtemdwIK1Kk[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtemdwIK1Kk Israeli News Live earlier reported that the US foreign office for the Middle East was run by pro-Israel groups only...

----------------

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/sweden-investigation-shows-state-actor-most-likely-behind-nord-stream-blast[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/sweden-investigation-shows-state-actor-most-likely-behind-nord-stream-blast DJ-I think Ukraine blew MH17 out of the sky-NOT Russia...but western politics followed Ukraine lies as "proof" ignoring all other evidence; "blame Putin"....The idea was to also blame "Putin-superman" for blowing up Nord stream...only -like MH17- the story makes no sense...

The most likely "actor" seems to be the US...de facto blowing up EU energy links with Russia...Some in the US now try to blame Poland...

------------

DJ-Again, Ukraine offensives still not showing...Some claim May-next month- will bring those offensives...but there is growing doubt if Ukraine still has enough soldiers, weapons for such an offensive...Russia did destroy railways so logistics is problematic...Russia also was able to attack some road convoys inside Ukraine (so has means to get info on transports). 

Russia wants peace-Ukraine out of NATO, safety for Russian speakers...but is NOT in a hurry...Ukraine losses between 500-1000 soldiers per day ! Does Ukraine want to fight with knives and stones when supplies run out ? In a military sense this war has been madness from the start...

China-Xi stayed polite recieving von der leyen, macron...supposed to represent France and the EU...[url]https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202304/1288674.shtml[/url] or https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202304/1288674.shtml ;

During talks with visiting French President Emmanuel Macron and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Thursday, Chinese President Xi Jinping stressed that cooperation and common ground between China and the EU outweigh competition and differences, and China is prepared to work with the EU to set the right direction and tone for China-EU ties, fully resume exchanges at all levels and revitalize mutually-beneficial cooperation in various fields, injecting fresh impetus into China-EU relations and global peace, stability and prosperity.

DJ...part of the EU-China trade goes by rail...either via Iran (TIP-Türkiye-Iran-Pakistan) or Russia...Poland does need trade with China. The southern-TIP-route may use Serbia-not Poland-transports going to NW Europe...another part of EU-China trade goes by ship...LNG (made of Russian gas in China) is part of that trade...India may want to join the "TIP-route" but needs to get out of conflict with both Pakistan and China...








🗨 Quote. President of France   said: No country can deploy nuclear weapons on foreign territory “under any circumstances.” 💬 Russian MFA Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova:  Am I correct in understanding that Paris’s tough demand is addressed to Washington?

DJ...very likely macron means Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus are "bad", US nuclear weapons all over Europe, maybe Asia, are "good"....double standards the world has had enough of...

--------------

Pandemic link-NO new major war in the Middle East does limit refugees...still climate change is making live impossible for millions in countries the west kept poor...China may invest in farms in Africa, Latin America out of self interest-still it would mean a major country at least showing interest in stopping climate collapse in Africa, Latin America...

Like Cuba China learned medical help is a good basis for cooperation. China has the means to "vaccinate the world"...certainly in cooperation with India (both countries have a population of 1400 million each...).

DJ, 

[url]https://www.timesofisrael.com/erdogan-to-irans-raisi-islamic-world-should-unite-against-israeli-attacks/[/url] or https://www.timesofisrael.com/erdogan-to-irans-raisi-islamic-world-should-unite-against-israeli-attacks/ ;
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told his Iranian counterpart Ebrahim Raisi in a phone call on Friday that “the Islamic world should be united against Israel’s attacks in Palestine,” his office said.

Pepe Escobar: "The single Iranian-Saudi handshake buried trillions of dollars of western divide-and-rule investments across West Asia, and has global leaders rushing to Beijing for global solutions."

Israel was a US "weapon" meant to control Middle East energy-protect the US$. Saudi Arabia is moving out of the Syria, Yemen and other conflicts...so-de facto-Israel now is the only "US tool" in the region...Jordan is not in a position to "go against the flow";








5,000 years of civilization. Against a bunch of upstart barbarians. BRIICSS is already on. Led by RICs. With Iran and Saudi close to the front seat. 

DJ, Russia-India-China already a major part of BRICS-now joined in Asia by Iran and Saudi Arabia...The SCO also includes Pakistan...It will be a matter of time (and elections) Türkiye will also "move east" (a result of the EU closing the doors for Türkiye for religious reasons...). 

For the US stopping the Caspian/Iran "bridge" for Russia-India trade, the TIP link between China and Europe/Africa -destruction/regime change in Iran-is now getting out of reach...

In Ukraine Bakhmut is now almost completely under (pro)Russian control ...still [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnXg_h_rm3c&t=1174s[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnXg_h_rm3c&t=1174s The Duran; Searching Europe for ammo. Blinken, counteroffensive in coming weeks

DJ...How one can plan an offensive within weeks without weapons ? 

My view; both Ukraine and EU could be close to a "turning point"-feeling used by an insane US political elite to keep the US elite rich...

Chinese President Xi Jinping met French President Emmanuel Macron in Guangzhou's Songyuan on Friday afternoon and had an informal meeting with the French leader. 

Xi said that over the past two days, the two sides have had in-depth and high quality exchanges in Beijing and Guangzhou, South China's Guangdong Province, increased understanding and mutual trust, and clarified the direction for future cooperation between China and France at bilateral and international levels. 

DJ, China goes for "make trade not war"...

While EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell and German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock are reportedly planning to travel to China in coming weeks following the visit of Macron and European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen this week, Chinese experts believe that more European officials coming to China also show that China's wisdom and solutions are winning more people over, and "the main tone" of China-EU relations this year is stabilizing relations, resuming all-level exchanges and turning those consensus into actions. 

The three-day visit not only resulted in fruitful business deals in the fields of transport, energy, agriculture, culture and science, but also provided guidance for the future direction of China-France and China-EU relations, as leaders of both sides sought a more reasonable way of co-existing in the post-pandemic era and amid the Ukraine crisis, despite differences and competitions, experts said.  

DJ...in fact China may be breaking up "the west"-making deals with the EU -preparing for war with the US....

After China released a 12-point position paper on political settlement of the Ukraine crisis and the Chinese leader visited Russia, it has become much clearer to Europe that the US won't resolve the crisis but will only fuel the fire, Wang said. He added that Europe felt disappointed by this and now pins its hopes on China, which it believes can play a positive role in helping resolve the crisis. 

DJ-Is the EU moving away from the US because of the Ukraine, Iran, Taiwan-US made conflicts ? 

This is HUGE. The German auto industry wants to keep doing business in Russia. Siegfried Wolf, in a 3-page letter to Putin, offered a VW deal - which should be kept secret at least for the moment.

DJ, politicians may have gone crazy...war industry owning media may promote more war...Lots of citizens and companies share the idea of "make trade not war"....

------------

In short; three frontlines;

-Ukraine-Russia keeps destroying NATO

-Middle East-Israel isolated and divided (Netanyahu-extremist government)

-Taiwan...China-EU trade may increase









Lula: NATO should not be near Russia's borders. Call it a Global South position, which will never be considered by those who run the Global North.

The general picture-my view-"multi polar world, de-dollar-ization" speeding up...Major risk could be China becoming to dominant...replacing the petro-dollar with a petro-yuan would be a bad idea...(De-colonization after World War Two often only did bring a local elite taking over from a foreign elite..."Revolutions" often can result in "elite-change" )

The US may have become-for now- a major energy supplier for Europe...it does not make the US global position stronger...The US itself is in crisis...without allies it should give up any ideas of more wars...For now there is "still" a NATO following US-biden-orders...but when the orders bring NATO destruction the US will have to rethink its position...

The petro-dollar already is history...old statistics on US$ in global trade simply misleading...creating trillions of $ can result in US$ dominance in global trade...but it is debt based...empty...

Again; diplomacy could have kept "the west" in a leading global position...confrontation was a very bad idea based on "wishfull thinking intel"...The same "wishfull thinking" we see in the pandemic discussion, climate collapse...ignoring facts...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Internet problems-on this site...

So short;

[url]https://www.debka.com/mivzak/idf-airstrikes-over-syria-after-six-rocket-barrage-from-quneitra/[/url] or https://www.debka.com/mivzak/idf-airstrikes-over-syria-after-six-rocket-barrage-from-quneitra/ ;

Rocket launchers in eastern Syria were targeted for IDF air, UAV and artillery strikes early Sunday, just hours after three rockets were launched from Syria towards the southern Golan. One landed on open ground, one in Jordan and a third was intercepted. Israel’s retaliation also targeted a Syrian Army 4th Division compound, radar sites and artillery batteries, spurring a second round of three rockets from Syria.

The head of the Golan Regional Council accordingly ordered shelters opened in towns in the southern Golan and instructed residents to stay near fortified spaces.

The Syrian front opened, Saturday night, as DEBKAfile predicted, as part of a Tehran-orchestrated terror campaign to be coducted against Israel on multiple fronts.

and [url]https://www.debka.com/mivzak/the-us-beefs-up-red-sea-mediterranean-fleets-against-iranian-threats/[/url] or https://www.debka.com/mivzak/the-us-beefs-up-red-sea-mediterranean-fleets-against-iranian-threats/ ;

Military sources in Washington Saturday disclosed the deployment of supplementary naval forces to the Red Sea and Mediterranean in response to intelligence reeceived of an impending Iranian offensive. The USS Florida guided missile submarine, which can carry 150 Tomahawk cruise missiles, was ordered to sail to the Red Sea; a squadron of A-10 strike aircraft was posted to the Mediterranean.

DJ...An Iranian offensive ?  Does the US mean Syria, Iran, Iraq, Russia, Türkiye kicking out the US  out of Syria and Iraq? 

The Duran [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qQFRV_ijQ4[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qQFRV_ijQ4 ;Macron & Ursula, disaster trip to Beijing

DJ...Linking to Global Times may be a problem on this site...China view however is the EU, France now see China as a diplomatic oppertunity to end the Ukraine war....So from a Chinese perspective lots of European "leaders" coming to Bejing (recieved without ceremony however..."as tourists"...) the EU may be willing to give China a role...China did END !!! talks with the US....

So the US-goal of breaking Russia-China links do need a different route...

DJ-How united is "the west"? Europe still buying lots of Russian energy via other countries...no longer in US$...Japan even ignoring a price cap on energy...involved in Russian oil projects in East Asia (Sachalin)...

-The New Atlas/NA [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBU74rUubi4[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBU74rUubi4 ;

Update on Russian military operations in Ukraine for April 9, 2023: - US arms shipments have drastically dwindled, the majority of weapons pledged require contracts that will take weeks, months, even years to fulfill; - The NYT admits arms shipments may not be adequate for the upcoming Ukrainian offensive expected to begin within 2-3 weeks; - Leaked NATO plans regarding Ukraine may have been fabricated by NATO and leaked through authentic means to reinforce other ongoing deceptions; - 2013 US government-funded polls regarding Crimea and Ukraine indicate that the nation was divided, many favored Russia or had affinity for Russia and the Russian language was at least as widely spoken nationwide as Ukrainian; 

DJ, Military Summary/MS mentioned Ukraine launched a rocket from south of Odessa to the Crimea-bridge; 400 kilometer range...Ukraine "with US help" now has long range weapons...

DJ-However Ukraine very likely will have very limited numbers of those missiles...NA view; Ukraine already lost two armies...another offensive could mean losing yet another army-this time the west may not be able to replace losses...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, Lots of discussion on the value/goal of "secrets leaking out"....Russia would have 97% of its army in Ukraine-also a claim made by UK min-of-war ben wallace...mid february...DJ-Maybe 97% of the Russian western region ? But even then the numbers do not make much sense...still NATO policies/intel did not make much sense...And why are western propaganda outlets (nytimes, bbc) publishing it ? 

One reason even western war-industry owned "media" can not ignore it may be there are plans for more media censorship ? If you are not 100% pro-NATO you are "bad" propaganda ? 

Another-likely-reason is in the military informed people are getting fed up with the non-sense "intel" has to come up for "political reasons"...

DJ, like the pandemic, climate collapse "politics" only willing to fund "studies" that claim "politics do a good job"...even when the system is collapsing...

One interesting "leak" (march 1) was Ukraine running out of air defense (S300, BUK)...however Russia does not need leaks for that...Ukraine will defend less and less against Russian drones and missiles...Without both no real Ukraine air force AND air defense starting any other offensive is even more insane...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/anticipated-ukrainian-counter-offensive-potentially-marred-plans-leak-reports[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/anticipated-ukrainian-counter-offensive-potentially-marred-plans-leak-reports DJ-the "dis-information/propaganda" does not need "leaks"....however if western "top-intel" see some of their "top secret insanity" leaked they may start worrying about the massive opposition against this -most insane- other NATO war...

DJ-Russia, China are "not free" in many ways...the "west" has some basic values on an individual level (based on western history-much less collective then in Asia) we could lose...AGAIN-confrontation against Russia-Iran-China is a  strategy that only is weakening-destroying- the west...Diplomacy may have kept the west still in a "strong" position..."We have become our main enemy ourselves"....








The Empire is Imploding: 1. Raytheon Director dies in plane crash 2. Classified Pentagon Ukraine and Middle East docs leaked 3. Saudi openly divorces USA and ties nuptials with Iran and China 4. De-dollarization trade agreements signed 5. Taiwan strait controlled by China

After spending around six hours with Chinese President Xi Jinping as part of a three-day state visit to China, Macron made extremely clear that France wants nothing to do with WWIII, emphasizing that Europe must employ "strategic autonomy," presumably led by France, to become a "third superpower," according to Politico.

-

China agrees

Macron's concept of strategic autonomy was 'enthusiastically endorsed' by Xi and the CCP, who have been focusing on the notion that the West is in decline while China rises, and that weakening the transatlantic relationship will accelerate this trend.

DJ;

If the #EU shows independence from the #US, most countries worldwide - notably those anti-unilateralism and US dominance - will join it & regain full ties with its members, industry & economy. Europe should be independent of the US dollar and policy. Our objectives don't meet.

my basic view...There is something very wrong in the US "political elite" when they end up with bush-jr, h.clinton, d.trump, j.biden...Somehow good intelligent US leaders are stopped from getting in leading positions...In Europe the political elite act as US slaves...is out of touch with the population...We have seen it all before...1776, 1789, 1917....

It remains rare that the US Navy would publicly disclose the location or deployment of submarines wherever they are globally. Likely the submarine could patrol the vital Strait of Hormuz waterway, frequented by international oil tankers, which also has a heavy IRGC Navy presence given some of it comprises Iranian territorial waters near the coast.

The Associated Press notes that "The U.S. Navy has also reported a series of tense encounters at sea with Iranian forces that it said were being recklessly aggressive."

But this new submarine deployment could also be part of US muscle-flexing as both Russia and China have been increasing their naval presence in the gulf.

Just last month, Russia, China and Iran held multiple days of joint drills in the Gulf of Oman, dubbed "Security Belt 2023". Additionally, this past week saw a Russian warship dock at a Saudi Arabian port for the first time in a decade

DJ...the "west" did send a lot of weapons to Ukraine for a land war...But the west still has lots of weapons for a sea/air war...

However!;

-Western currencies may NO LONGER !!! be under western control ! De-dollar-ization will push up US inflation...switching from dollars to euro's could "pump up/blow up" the euro...There is only "limited room" for a petro-yuan...So 'dumping the dollar" only can be done by using a lot of other currencies...

-Just like the US is dreaming of breaking up the Russia-China link (US "pressure" only increasing Russia-China cooperation...) Russia, China will like to see a "wider gap" between the US, UK, EU...DJ-My view...we ended up in this major crisis because of j.biden...The "US democrats pseudo religion" Putin made trump US president so take revenge.."Russia has to be weak"...

-Putin may be more popular in some western countries then the "local leaders"...biden, macron, scholz, rutte...Most western citizens see problems grow...no solutions...

-The number of "western enemies" is growing...from Venezuela, Nicaragua to Russia, Iran, China...does the west want regime change in Türkiye ? Saudi Arabia ? Again in Pakistan ? NATO could NOT win in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya...only did bring destruction...slave trade/refugees...The "rest" of the world is no longer waiting for this kind of "western help"...

In interview with Zman Yisrael, Maj. Gen. (res.) Tamir Hayman says he no longer trusts Netanyahu on matters of security, cautions premier may no longer be thinking rationally

DJ...if western population lose trust in their leaders...should we then start world war three ?????

----------

Russia,Iran, China did NOT close all doors-for the west- for diplomacy...They however are "done" with the US...

One of a possible western goal could be keeping the US$ a leading global currency...but even here Europe, UK may not be willing to start a global war...The biden-clan may be dreaming of "regime change", breaking up of Russia...Europe is NOT waiting for the chaos such an unlikely scenario will bring (Yugoslavia XXXL)...

The "west" no longer is united...EU may have followed the US in Ukraine...not stopped the US ending of an Iran-deal...but the EU/UK may decide they want relations with China...

DJ-To end it for today a reminder...Nordstream can be repaired...it will be an expensive high-tech job...If the Ukraine war is over lots of other routes for Russia-EU energy trade will reopen...

If the west can NOT unite at certain goals-what is the point of the Ukraine war ? 

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

President Donald Trump took to his social media account this afternoon and posted "WORLD WAR III" . . . nothing else.   S going to HTF is my guess . . .

I am endeavoring to find out what may be going on worldwide that would give rise to a man like him, making a posting like that.  On Easter Sunday, no less.

Something's up . . . something big.

UPDATE 8:15 PM EDT --

BRICS+ is taking over and there’s nothing the West can do about it. The US dollar won’t be the worlds reserve currency and the US Govt won’t be able to print money on the backs of other nations. US Govt bonds will be junk because of insane US debt. The End

RUSSIA$75 trillionBRICS+

       Multipolar world wins!

 

FRANCE ABANDONING U.S.

FRENCH PRESIDENT EMMANUEL MACRON on the plane returning from his 3-day trip to China: "Europe should reduce its dependence on the extraterritoriality of the U.S. dollar... If the tensions between the two superpowers heat up … we won’t have the time nor the resources to finance our strategic autonomy and we will become vassals.”     

MACRON also said: "Europe must reduce its dependency on the US and avoid getting dragged into a confrontation between China and the U.S. over Taiwan."   So not only is France abandoning the US, they are now actively encouraging Europe to do the same.  Bear in mind, France just conducted the first-ever transaction for Liquified Natural Gas in a currency OTHER THAN the U.S. Dollar!   So the French are cutting off their use of our Dollars as well.

 

EUROPEAN UNION

Ursula von der Leyen, the head of the "European Commission" (of un-elected tyrants) departed the PRC through a regular terminal at the airport with baggage screening and passport checks, just like any other nobody.  Notice the look on her face as she has to be around us commoners . . . 

China's amazing "dis" of the head of the European Commission in this way -- and in such a public manner, is a statement by China that the EU isn't even worth paying attention to.   Not militarily, and not with its "EURO" currency.    It shows that the EU doesn't matter anymore.  Not in the coming version of the world. 

MORE:

The Germans are asking the Kremlin to allow them to produce cars in Russia. The German publication Speigel reports that it has sent a three-page letter to Vladimir Putin with a proposal to resume cooperation.

This shows that EU Sanctions against Russia are literally starting to come apart at the seams.   If trade with Russia resumes in any meaningful way, the West ENTIRE plan in Ukraine and to takeover Russia, will fail before it starts.  

 

CHINA

China controls 98% of the world's rare earth Minerals  production and plans to ban their export to the US for national security reasons!

The U.S. __must__ have some of those rare earth minerals to manufacture for our Military.  Without those rare earth minerals, our military might - and the accuracy of our weaponry in particular - is __gutted__.    No more playing Globo-Cop; except it won't be by OUR choice, it will be forced upon us by China.

 

UKRAINE

Ukrainian medium-range air defense systems will be completely depleted by May 23.

They will be able to withstand only two or three more waves of blows. /The Washington Post, citing Pentagon documents/ Air defense systems

NASAMS, Iris-T, and Patriot Missile Systems will soon arrive in Ukraine, said Yuri Ignat, adviser to the country's Air Force Command.   Not certain if - or how many such systems - can arrive in Ukraine before May 23.

If Russia strikes 3, 4, or more times, Ukraine will be finished before May 23.   This __may__ prompt a direct NATO entry, and thus . . . WW3.

MORE

Russia is moving elite units of its army, including paratroopers, to Bakhmut.  Wagner PMC has suffered very severe losses, but has gained significant ground there.  Now, the regular Russian Army is sending its units.   

If  (OOOOPS)  WHEN Russia takes Bakhmut, the entire south and southeast of Ukraine will be cut off from supplies.  It will likely fold fast.  Again, another possible reason for NATO to come "all-in" and thus trigger WW3.

All these developments are troubling, but I am not sure any of them individually, or all of them collectively, get us to what President Trump said: "World War 3."

 

More if I get it.

DJ...my view....the US may no longer be in a position to start or continu a major conflict....

-Lots of NATO allies do NOT want more war...neither further escalation in Ukraine or more conflict with Iran, China...

-The US itself may be moving towards a dollar/energy crisis....basic materials needed to produce weapons are no longer under US control...

-Russia and China by now could be moving towards "ways" to deny the US "first strike capacity"...via Electronic Warfare, hypersonic weapons (laser) possibly able to "destroy" US/western nuclear weapons within seconds after launch...so still over "western territory"....

-On top of that Russia/China could try to find ways to unable western communications...

The real battle only has de-dollar-ization, energy/raw materials control, logistics as one aspect. The technical (cyber warfare, electronic warfare) aspect may be full of surprises...

As a teacher, Lisa Biton was trained how to respond when incoming rocket sirens blared. Fortunately, the Kiryat Gat resident knew how to act when she was recently at a large family holiday gathering in Sderot, near the Gaza border, and the red alert system sounded. There were only 15 seconds to get to the bomb shelter, but Biton’s in-laws froze. She touched them on the shoulder, gently yet firmly got their attention, and shepherded them quickly to safety.

“I got them to stay in the moment. I reassured them that they were with me, and that we were going to be okay,” Biton said.

Biton’s in-laws’ reaction was a common manifestation of acute stress and anxiety (harada in Hebrew) that can be expected in response to recent events in Israel, including rocket attacks from Lebanon, Syria, and Gaza, and an uptick in terror attacks on both sides of the Green Line.

DJ, 








Explosion in Ya’afour near the Syrian capital Damascus carried by drones. The sight is a villa for Maher Al-Assad (brother of Syrian president) There was a meeting for Iranian and Lebanese leaders in IRGC and Lebanese militants

[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/unconfirmed-reports-a-missile-strike-killed-brother-of-bashar-assad[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/unconfirmed-reports-a-missile-strike-killed-brother-of-bashar-assad ;

Reports are coming in indicating that a missile strike by an "unknown" aircraft, killed the BROTHER of Syria President Bashar Assad along with some Iranian officials in Syria.

Again, these reports are, as yet, UNCONFIRMED.   Working to get more info.

see also [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maher_al-Assad[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maher_al-Assad 

Maher al-Assad (Arabicمَاهِرُ ٱلْ£َسَدِromanizedMāhir al-ʾAsad, born 8 December 1967) is a Syrian general and commander of the Republican Guard and the army's elite Fourth Armoured Division, which together with Syria's secret police form the core of the country's security forces.[7][8] He is also a member of the Central Committee of the Ba'ath Party's Syrian Regional Branch.[9] He is thought by some to be the second-most powerful man in Syria after his brother Bashar, the current President.[10]

Maher is described by analysts as preferring Iran (as opposed to Russia) to play the largest role as the Syrian Government's main ally during the Syrian Civil War and subsequent post-war reconstruction. This is in contrast to the position of Major General Suheil al-Hassan, commander of the Division 25 Special Mission Forces who has gained much influence as a result of his activities during the Syrian Civil War, who was reported as preferring Russia.[11][12][13][14]

DJ...no confirmation on the death of Maher al-Assad....anywhere...

China has continued its major show of force aimed at Taiwan in the wake of last week's meeting between Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen and US House Speaker Kevin McCarthy in California last week. 

The PLA military says it is rehearsing "sealing off" Taiwan for its third day of wargames, with Monday reports citing at least 58 planes buzzing the island as well as nine warships coming toward its territorial waters. 

-








A blockade can happen in many forms Easiest and cheapest to implement would be to use missiles to destroy the 16 ports of all types in Taiwan. This alone ends Taiwan's ability to receive any bulk goods. Add a no-fly-zone around it, you have a blockade.

-








So what does that leave Taiwan? Literally nothing. People with their heads stuck in sand do not want to see how vulnerable Taiwan is even today, let alone 10, 15 years from now. Reunification is just a matter of time, resistance is futile

DJ, Taiwan does see itself as part of China...it is 9again) the US creating problems...Korea may be on its way to reunification-just like China (with Taiwan)...it is a matter of time...

Documents reported by US media say Washington thinks Jerusalem can be convinced to let third parties supply Kyiv with weapons including surface-to-air and anti-tank missiles

DJ...this indirect route would allow Israel to keep relations with Russia and China...

DJ-my view...

-Macron [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQDSJ4pAipo[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQDSJ4pAipo Macron-China panic. Ursula exits China, passport check. Telegraph Putin fantasy; Et tu, Brute? U/1

Alex Christoforou/AC may give a good description of EU-China recent contact. "ursula" supposed to "lead the EU" 9into disaster ?) was separated from macron. Macron his visit-with lots of French bussinesspeople-was planned...China is willing to do trade..."make trade not war"....

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/parting-gift-xi-widespread-anger-west-over-macrons-call-stay-out-taiwan-crisis[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/parting-gift-xi-widespread-anger-west-over-macrons-call-stay-out-taiwan-crisis ;

Both the content and timing of French President Emanuel Macron's statements to the press coming off his China trip wherein he urged Europe to step aside from US-China quarrels over Taiwan is driving anger among some Western officials and pundits. As we highlighted yesterday, the statements were widely seen as very 'China-friendly', causing fury especially in Washington at a moment Chinese PLA jets and warships have again conducted encircling drills threatening the democratic-run island.

Macron's articulating a concept of strategic autonomy for Europe was 'enthusiastically endorsed' by Xi and the CCP, who have been focusing on the notion that the West is in decline while China rises, and that weakening the transatlantic relationship will accelerate this trend. "The paradox would be that, overcome with panic, we believe we are just America’s followers," said Macron. "The question Europeans need to answer … is it in our interest to accelerate [a crisis] on Taiwan? No. The worse thing would be to think that we Europeans must become followers on this topic and take our cue from the U.S. agenda and a Chinese overreaction."

DJ...of course Europe, the EU, should have "corrected" the US years ago...it is very late....Let me be very clear [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Service-Members%27_Protection_Act[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Service-Members%27_Protection_Actknown informally as the Hague Invasion Act

is totally unacceptable ! My country-NL-should have "limited" diplomatic relations with the US untill this law was withdrawn...NL was the first country to recognize the US in 1776...The US should not even think of threatening NL...Somehow "politicians for sale" accept this kind of US agression...The US is even allowed to blow up Nordstream...NL-Europe is even willing to blame Russia for MH17...while lots of evidence point to Ukraine...but that did not fit a "political agenda"....

So are we at "breaking point" in US-EU relations ? 

We are getting closer....One major point is "European leaders for sale" are out of contact with most of the voters...."traitors" may be a fitting word for most "politicians"....

Recently, tensions have escalated even further as news about the military exchanges between Taiwan and NATO since 2018. China has warned that it will take necessary steps to prevent Taiwan from being a member of NATO, including military intervention if necessary. The settlement of the Taiwan question is a matter for the Chinese people themselves, and any attempt to separate Taiwan from China is doomed to failure. Please Subscribe to the following channels.

DJ..."politics for sale" still call NATO "defensive"...the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization is working with all kinds of "groups" IS, alquaida, Azov-neo nazi's, MEK, Baluchi, Uyghur and othe extremists to keep the "US #1"....NATO is involved in all kinds of terrorism all over the globe...where there is oil there is NATO trying to keep that oil under western control...

By now "the rest" of the world is getting totally fed up with western crimes...from stealing Syria, Iraq oil to Afghan, Venezuela, Russia bank accounts...The rest of the world now recognizes-has the room to recognize-the west as criminal racists...

-------------

Like most wars also the Ukraine war was both preventable and is making a lot of profit for the war-industry...The French has their own major defense industry...so macron "breaking" with the US is supposed to help French weapon sales...energy interests (nuclear power plants).

DJ-The first country to recognize (1948) Israel was the Soviet Union...Israel-my view-could be a motor for the Middle East/North Africa (MENA)...to much energy was put into Israel as a destructive factor for the region...

Israel has to become constructive or face destruction...Other countries in the region, Russia, China, India want Israel to become constructive...not a US crusade state working only for US interests...

Maybe Israel may be a good indicator for how "the world" will be able to deal with Asia becoming the new global dominant power...

The US is destroying itself, Europe needs to go for European interests...IF Europe would "break" with present US insanity it may save the world from global war...

AC mentioned zelensky may visit Germany next month...to get some "prize"...no doubt also discussion on "new strategies"....I expect massive protests against both clown zelensky and a corrupt political elite pushing for unwanted, unneeded wars...

We may be at a turning point...further escalation means "the end" and for what ? Citizens in the west deserve better then ending up paying for a rich elite only getting more rich...

---------

DJ-I live in NL...I enjoy the freedom to write very critical writings...Even in the US, UK, it may be "a problem" to write what I do...(I was not planning to go there any time soon...)...So YES !!! There are "western values" to defend ! 

But who is attacking those freedoms ? Who is the major threat ? My view is "politics-for-sale" -inside the west-are the major risk. Direct by silencing critics, indirect by making the west so much weaker...In many ways Russia, China...even India is not that "free"....

I want good public healthcare, eduction, public housing, transport...most "normal citizens" welcome that all over the world..."Civilization"...good things for all-not just a rich elite...

If that is "socialism" okay ! If "capitalism" only gives basic rights to the rich that "unbalanced" capitalism is NOT my thing...

Two processes dominate this year’s celebration of the international unity of the working class: the war in Ukraine, which is escalating toward a global conflagration, and an international resurgence of the class struggle. These two processes are profoundly related. The same economic, geopolitical and social contradictions that drive the imperialist ruling elites onto the path of war provide the objective impulse for the radicalization of the working class and the outbreak of revolutionary struggles.

DJ...I may not agree with WSWS all the way...but when making a choice between more endless NATO wars or good public services I know where I stand !

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, 

Let me show some optimism...[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4IpzrBH_EI[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4IpzrBH_EI The Duran;

Zelensky in a box, offensive success in doubt. Neocon Plan B, push Poland into conflict

by now even most in the west start realizing an insane group of US elite is pushing for global chaos to "maintain US dominance"....even if it would bring global disaster. 

The goal of the crazy US/UK elite is NOT to win wars but to have -endless- wars for wich endless flow of weapons/profits are needed...

Maybe there is a link to pandemics, climate change...why solve a problem if the problem gets you rich....? 

Macron/France has to move out of this US made mess...-other countries will follow...in fact Saudi Arabia, Türkiye allready de facto did break with this insane US "foreign policy"...Israel may break ties with the US after info leaked the US is supporting protests in Israel...

Here in NL refugees-living in tents for months-are on hungerstrike...Italy moving into state of emergency with over 10,000 refugees per month...Poland, Türkiye dealing with millions of refugees all because of insane US made wars....

The way out of this chaos is breaking with the (present) US...dumping the US$....Maybe NATO will remain in name...but soon may become an empty shell...

Ukraine is running out of both soldiers and weapons...this US made war did destroy Ukraine for what ? 

If BRICS want to show themselves as a better alternative-welcome new members...it has to come up with constructive plans to get the world out of wars...

In fact the only way to do that is isolate the problem...the US/UK may be the major problem....

Is there a nuclear risk ? YES...but will the US "nuke the world"....the present US "elite" is crazy enough...the sooner the world is saved from these idiots the better...Even in the US there is growing awareness the US elite is the -global- problem....

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, 

The Duran [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0V1b_Yrw1Vs[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0V1b_Yrw1Vs  and India-Hindustan Times [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRbN-1GJYoc[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRbN-1GJYoc ; French President Emmanuel Macron has stepped his attack on United States. In his second big attack in recent days, Macron said that the European states or allies are not the "vassal" of United States and that they have a right to think about their own interests. Macron's comments came in the context of EU's position on Taiwan amid recent escalation between US and China over House Speaker's meeting with Island's president. Watch the video for more details.

In Europe macron may get some support in his views on Taiwan being part of China....Europe may be facing the worst refugee crisis since 1945...and is not waiting for more refugees or US-made crises....If the US/UK want more wars with Iran, China they may have to do so without European support....

In what's being widely seen as a precursor to a future Assad visit and normalization of ties, Syria's Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad has arrived in Saudi Arabia for the first time a Syrian FM has visited the kingdom since 2011.

The more than decade-long war in Syria, which was heavily funded by the US, NATO, and Gulf states as part of regime change efforts to oust Bashar al-Assad, saw not only the Saudis but the majority of Gulf countries formally sever ties and shutter their embassies

DJ, Iran is a strategic partner for Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Türkiye...Asia is becoming more and more an integrated economy...

The US is not willing to face reality....sanctions on Russia are a total failure...even Ukraine is buying Russian energy...[url]https://seymourhersh.substack.com/p/trading-with-the-enemy?[/url] or https://seymourhersh.substack.com/p/trading-with-the-enemy? ;

The Ukraine government, headed by Volodymyr Zelensky, has been using American taxpayers’ funds to pay dearly for the vitally needed diesel fuel that is keeping the Ukrainian army on the move in its war with Russia. It is unknown how much the Zelensky government is paying per gallon for the fuel, but the Pentagon was paying as much as $400 per gallon to transport gasoline from a port in Pakistan, via truck or parachute, into Afghanistan during the decades-long American war there.

What also is unknown is that Zelensky has been buying the fuel from Russia, the country with which it, and Washington, are at war, and the Ukrainian president and many in his entourage have been skimming untold millions from the American dollars earmarked for diesel fuel payments. One estimate by analysts from the Central Intelligence Agency put the embezzled funds at $400 million last year, at least; another expert compared the level of corruption in Kiev as approaching that of the Afghan war, “although there will be no professional audit reports emerging from the Ukraine.”

“Zelensky’s been buying discount diesel from the Russians,” one knowledgeable American intelligence official told me. “And who’s paying for the gas and oil? We are. Putin and his oligarchs are making millions” on it.

DJ....[url]https://www.timesofisrael.com/egypt-planned-to-supply-thousands-of-rockets-to-russia-amid-ukraine-war-report/[/url] or https://www.timesofisrael.com/egypt-planned-to-supply-thousands-of-rockets-to-russia-amid-ukraine-war-report/ ;

US intel leaks indicate Cairo sought to export 40,000 missiles, other equipment; Sissi instructed a minister to provide the arms, but ‘avoid problems with West’

so the "west" is pushing an illusion....with the EU not willing to destroy its economy by destroying the Euro or trade with China, India...

Alexander Mercouris/AM in The Duran discussed a possible "plan B" -to get Poland moving into Ukraine...both Poland and Ukraine may rethink such a very unwise idea...it would further increase the gap between Poland and the rest of the EU....

"EU-ursula" got insulted earlier by Türkiye, now by China...after Merkel now macron could go for a leading role in Europe....AM questions if macron will go against the US long enough, strong enough...DJ-but it is not only Macron-France that is getting fed up with US and UK endless wars...

Macron may have to show himself as defender of French interests in the world to remain in power in France...[url]https://nltimes.nl/2023/04/12/police-arrest-protestors-ran-towards-emmanuel-macron-univ-amsterdam-visit[/url] or https://nltimes.nl/2023/04/12/police-arrest-protestors-ran-towards-emmanuel-macron-univ-amsterdam-visit  and [url]https://www.france24.com/en/europe/20230411-president-macron-to-visit-netherlands-amid-row-over-china-comments[/url] or https://www.france24.com/en/europe/20230411-president-macron-to-visit-netherlands-amid-row-over-china-comments 

AM also mentions for China goals are;

-buying time to be better prepared for a conflict with the US

-breaking up the west

-DJ-China also wants to show itself as a global player able to get results...where the US (and UK) now only create chaos...

Another point is can the US "skip" the Ukraine war to start a Taiwan war ? Is biden that crazy he could claim "Ukraine did beat Russia" simply further denying reality ? 

The US foreign policy is insane....DJ-There most likely will be lots of groups in the US that are aware urgent changes are needed NOW !!! Otherwise the US ends up isolated (and the UK is split up-with a united Ireland, Scotland in the EU...) and bankrupt...in confrontation even with Europe...

Maybe Obama, some "moderate" democrats, republicans, independent US leaders may start an impeachement [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_in_the_United_States[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_in_the_United_States to get rid of a destructive cult in fact destroying the US....

Poland-Ukraine Union. Wagner is Unstoppable. Second Port. Military Summary And Analysis 2023.04.13

DJ, Poland-the present Polish "government of extremist catholics" rural backing, may push for further escalation...however the present government is facing also farmer protests...Poland -in support of Ukraine- is now importing agriculture products from Ukraine and selling it in the EU as Polish products...So Polish farmers end up with lower prices for their products...

In the more western and urban Polish areas the present [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_and_Justice[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_and_Justice may only get more hate...

During its foundation, it sought to position itself as a centrist Christian democratic party, although shortly after, it adopted more culturally and socially conservative views and began their shift to the right. Under Kaczyński's national-conservative and law and order agenda, PiS embraced the principles of economic interventionism. It has also pursued close relations with the Catholic Church, although in 2011, the Catholic-nationalist faction split off to form United Poland.[3] During the 2010s, it also adopted right-wing populist positions. After regaining power, PiS gained popularity with transfer payments to families with children,[4] but attracted international criticism and domestic protest movements by dismantling liberal-democratic checks and balances. Political scientists have characterized the party's governance as illiberal or authoritarian.[5]

It is a member of the European Conservatives and Reformists,[6] and on national-level, it heads the United Right coalition. It currently holds 198 seats in the Sejm and 44 in the Senate.

DJ, Poland and Ukraine share a history. Both are "borderlands" [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukraine#Etymology_and_orthography[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukraine#Etymology_and_orthography

The name of Ukraine likely comes from the old Slavic term for "borderland",[22] as does the word krajina.

In the English-speaking world during most of the 20th century, Ukraine (whether independent or not) was referred to as "the Ukraine".[23] This is because the word ukraina means "borderland"[24] so the definite article would be natural in the English language; this is similar to "Nederlanden", which means "low lands" and is rendered in English as "the Netherlands".[25] However, since Ukraine's declaration of independence in 1991, this usage has become politicised and is now rarer, and style guides advise against its use.[26][27] US ambassador William Taylor said that using "the Ukraine" implies disregard for Ukrainian sovereignty.[28] The official Ukrainian position is that "the Ukraine" is both grammatically and politically incorrect.[29]

and both Poland and Ukraine ended up being part of Germany and/or Russia in the last two hundred years...

-Germany, the EU, may NOT welcome Polish solo-actions...maybe the US,UK, Baltics/Finland(?) however could push for a larger role of Poland in the Ukraine war...

Russia will NOT accept Poland moving (major) borders eastward...but also Ukraine nationalists may not accept Polish/catholicism moving into Ukraine-orthodox territory...even with the western part of Ukraine being mostly catholic and Polish-it was part of Poland till 1939/World War Two...

For that matter the Polish-Ukraine "border conflict" could be seen as a different conflict...Most Polish hate Russians, a struggle for a Polish identity may be part of Polish history...(and Ukraine may be in the same identity crisis). 

-Can Poland (population 37,8 million) make a difference ? It is already very involved in the Ukraine war with lots of "Polish volunteers" fighting for Kiev...lots of Polish weapons being used...So increasing a Polish role in this war may only make a major difference if "the west" would allow it...send lots of military goods to Poland...

NATO will think twice in activating article 5 if Russia would attack Polish military bases when those bases are used to attack (Pro)Russian forces in Ukraine/Belarus...So far the NATO goal was to contain the war mostly to Ukraine..."weakening Russia"...So "Polish activism" may increase NATO members trying to find ways to "limit the war"...

A larger role for Poland would damage the EU. Poland was next in line to move towards the Euro...lots of Polish work in western Europe...It would move millions of Ukraine refugees now in Poland towards western Europe already facing the worst refugee crisis since World War Two...

-DJ, Most likely increasing a Polish role in the Ukraine war could "explode" the crisis that already is brewing inside Poland...maybe even start a sort of Polish civil war...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_civil_war[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_civil_war ...the western parts of Poland were part of Germany till 1945...

So increasing a Polish role in Ukraine may only make matters more complex, NOT increase the Ukraine chances...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

-Lots of "non-western" countries question why they would do international trade in US$

-Both EU,UK and US tried to "seize not freeze" Russian possessions in the west...believed to be 300 billion US$ in value...

  -legal issues are in the way

  -The west has no idea where most of the 300 billion Russian money is...

So the basic idea of financing the NATO war against Russia in Ukraine by stealing Russian possessions is another phantasy...

-The person able to leak US secrets was found via "free embedded press" owned by war industries...

-The US now willing to invest in one other "Ukraine" offensive-then switching to war with China...

DJ; In Ukraine (a.o. Military Summary-YouTube) tens-of-thousends pro-Kiev fighters getting trapped. Not only in Bakhmut but in several places. Betarus, Georgian, Polish (etc) "volunteers" will not very likely give up the fight...because they face Russian prison sentences.

DJ...T62 tanks may be of use in urban areas to move into "urban fortresses"-maybe remote controlled ? IF Ukraine would start another offensive it can only do so with "lots of western help"...making it even more of a NATO-Russia war fought in Ukraine...

It's been no secret that US and Poland ties, particularly on the level of military coordination, have greatly accelerated in recent years. This has been especially on display since the Russian invasion of Ukraine. 

Poland's prime minister on Thursday lashed out at French President Emmanuel Macron's controversial China comments which came just after his visit with Xi Jinping. Mateusz Morawiecki openly mocked the French leader's call for European 'strategic autonomy', which included follow-up comments about not being Washington's "vassals"

"European autonomy sounds fancy, doesn't it? But it means shifting the center of European gravity towards China and severing the ties with the US," Morawiecki said in response.

may only get more divided;

Poland, Baltics, Finland may follow US/UK pushing for further escalation...France-Macron-facing massive unrest has to find a way to limit the damage...Macron may get some support by playing on French nationalism...Both from the left and right in France there is lots of opposition not only about pension age but also on foreign policies...

NL is facing a massive refugee crisis...DJ-we could face tens-of-thousends of refugees sleeping in the streets...[url]https://nltimes.nl/2023/04/14/asylum-seekers-may-sleep-outside-reception-centers-rutte-said[/url] or https://nltimes.nl/2023/04/14/asylum-seekers-may-sleep-outside-reception-centers-rutte-said

The swift approval comes just hours after Berlin said that it had received the application.

DJ Mig-29  from former East Germany have little use in Ukraine...(like using World War One planes in World War Two...)..."the west" is running out of weapons to send to Ukraine...

A next step may be sending NATO forces -large scale- into Ukraine...several reasons why "NATO" will not do that;

-The war is already unpopular in most NATO countries...Why NATO is in Ukraine ????

-More NATO forces will mean more NATO deaths...very likely Poland may have seen over 1,000 Polish deaths in Ukraine...

-Early 2022 the Ukraine army was supposed to be at NATO level...a strong army, NOT a minor force...it was destroyed by Russia

-Modern western high tech weapons in Ukraine did NOT do the expected job...

-The west is running out of finance and energy...

-Most EU countries want trade with China, Middle East, Africa...getting more involved in Ukraine will do even more diplomatic damage...

DJ-Outcome of this all may be;

-US/biden getting even more isolated...

-increase of risk US "going nuclear"...

Two months ago, on February 9,  Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov visited the African nation of Sudan.  One of the topics discussed: A Russian Naval Base on the Red Sea.   Here we are two months after that discussion, the U.S. has fomented a military Coup in Sudan.

The U.S. is the only country that can print "unlimited" money and exchange it for real goods from other nations. This is due to the US Dollar's reserve status.
But do you know the U.S. can also extend this exorbitant privilege to an ally? Here's how the scam works...

If you want to understand how the U.S. defrauds the world, you need to know how reserve currency works and how the US Dollar (USD)  gained that status.

The tool that allows the U.S. to extend its exorbitant monetary privileges to an ally is called 'swap lines.' 'Swap lines' are agreements that enable one country to exchange its currency with the currency of another. This is done through their respective central banks.

Let's use the example of 'swap lines' between the U.S. & UK to illustrate how the scam works:
Countries are free to print their own currencies.
But only the U.S. can print "unlimited" amount of dollars without suffering hyperinflation due to the USD's reserve status.

That means the U.S. can generate "unlimited" amount of dollars out of thin air & exchange them for:
- tangible goods from China
- resources from Africa
- oil from the Middle East

That's "magic."
No other country can do that... unless the U.S. grants them a 'swap line.'

What if the UK wants a share of that "magic money"? The U.S. Fed can help. Here's how:
The Bank of England prints 1 trillion GBP. It then swaps that with the Fed for 1.25 trillion USD (the current exchange rate).
The UK has just indirectly printed 1.25 trillion USD!

Did you see the "magic" that just happened?

Unlike America, the UK cannot print GBP with impunity and allow all that excess "money" to enter the market. That would devalue the GBP & cause hyperinflation.
So it prints the GBP & swaps them for USD with the Fed instead.

In short, the U.S. defrauds the world with its USD, then uses 'swap lines' to share the spoils with its staunchest allies.

The U.S. can grant 'swap lines' to any country it wants.

Now do you understand why some countries are diehard supporters of the U.S. Empire?

Being a staunch US ally means they get to create money out of thin air thanks to the U.S.A.


DJ, In short the basics for a neo-colonial US global empire that now is ending...[url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/04/how-china-is-breaking-the-colonial-effects-of-western-lending.html[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/04/how-china-is-breaking-the-colonial-effects-of-western-lending.html

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/escobar-all-roads-lead-beijing[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/escobar-all-roads-lead-beijing DJ-A (short) description of the ongoing confrontation between "NATO" B&B = Bribes & Bombs based chaos and BRICS/China "make trade not war"...even macron/France rethinking why the EU is that involved in wars created by a criminal US elite...

Alex Christoforou [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93rJfQK-5K0[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93rJfQK-5K0Sudan conflict. Neocons, Crimea = regime change. Bolton, global NATO. Germany RIP nuclear power. U/1

DJ, blinkes on twitter "supporting democracy in Sudan" just prior before the (US bribed) coup attempt...bribes & bombs...










It is not in the interest of #SaudiArabia or #Egypt or #Russia or #China to see the fighting in #Sudan destabilising the country. The Sudanese army should take control of the country before Sudan becomes like #Syria.

Are we at the beginning of a "War for Africa" ? 

One of the discussions is why the US is not doing more in the Middle East...One idea is the US-neo cons believe "regime change in Moscow" would return the rest of the world to US domination...Maybe Russia planning to open a navy base in Port Sudan ( Or another Red Sea Sudan port?) and the unstabile situation was  a "good oppertunity" for the US to start yet another "civil" war ? 

DJ-Most of Africa is moving away from a west keeping them poor in the hope BRICS+ may offer more perspectives...Africa still is seeing lots of wars (Eastern Congo/DRC is one of the longest, bloodiest wars going on...). 

The Saudi-Iran peace talks may end wars in a.o. Yemen, Syria...the US/UK pushed for those wars to "stop BRICS"....but "the west" will be kicked out "to give peace a chance"...

In Africa no doubt countries realize the only way forward is "get rid of" neo-colonialism...DJ-I hope BRICS offers a better alternative...for that matter a larger BRICS+ may limit China/Asia dominance...Still more then 50% of the global population live in Asia...(The US has a population of 335 million on a global population of 8 billion). 

-Pandemic relevance;

Both India and China (each a population of 1,4 billion !) are able to produce "pharma-products" on a global scale and are willing to provide the rest of the world without seeking profits...Iran/Cuba, Russia, South Africa, Brazil (a.o.) also have major pharma-industries...

Another aspect;

Human resources are the most important resources. China realized that. They have more people and they have invested far more in their people. China graduates MILLIONS more engineers and designers than the West does every single year. Better technology is the inevitable result.

DJ, Even Russia with a population of 146 million is able to educate more engineers then the US...Public healthcare -for most of the world- is a national interest NOT just another for profit market...leaving millions without medical care...Education has to be available FOR ALL !!! Out of national interest ! Countries that leave millions homeless, addicted or even in prison (the US has 2 million people in prison-25% of global prisoners are in US prisons !!!) fail !

Politics has to work for public wellbeing not to get the rich only more rich at the cost of everybody else....

DJ; "Balanced capitalism" may be not bad...but when companies run politics capitalism is out of balance...I believe in the Rhineland model [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_market_economy[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_market_economy ;is a socioeconomic model combining a free-market capitalist economic system alongside social policies and enough regulation to establish both fair competition within the market and generally a welfare state.[2][3] It is sometimes classified as a regulated market economy.[4]

Once in Europe that "Rhineland model" was "the norm"...a healthy balance between public and private interests...That idea is now presented-even in NL- as "radical"....

The reason why in 2003 SARS-1 was limited, in 2019 SARS-2 became a pandemic is related to how governments do their job...Do they intervene...stop flying diseases around the globe...or is that "a market-job"....

Western neo-liberalism/neo-conservatism is a disaster bringing destruction... 

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

DJ, 

One way wars are used is "promotion of weapons" [url]https://www.zerohedge.com/military/leaked-document-shows-american-smart-bombs-are-failing-ukraine[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/military/leaked-document-shows-american-smart-bombs-are-failing-ukraine ...in this story one could claim TWO sorts of weapons;

-1 US "smart bombs"

-2 Russian Electronic Warfare

In Ukraine Russian forces have night vision gear, better electronics detecting radar, mobile phones...in combination with more artillery/long distance weapons that results in Russia being able to destroy Ukraine/NATO targets sinding all kind of electronic signals...Since in a modern war you need communication that communication has to be protected. Not only the info has to remain within the own forces, also where the signal is coming from has to be "safe"...

No doubt US/NATO is sharing all kinds of satellite/electronic intel with Kiev-Russia has its own "electronic intel"...Global trade in weapons/warfare is a major bussiness...

- On top of that; [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_GDP_(PPP)#Table[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_GDP_(PPP)#Table 

Russia is able to make anti-tank weapons at the cost of 5% (!!!) of similar US weapons..Some claim in practice those Russian weapons even do "a better job"...Russia has a state owned military industrial complex...not profit oriented...The western war-industry is profit only...

The Russian war-industry is able to spread long term costs (housing, supplies/storage) over a much longer time-so the costs per product is lower...Western war-industry has to first sell its product, promote it...then try to make profits...Bribes are not unusual in selling weapons...

DJ-This way of thinking one also can see in how countries deal with pandemics...In lots of countries public healthcare once did see vaccine production/pharma was a state-bussiness...NOT profit oriented...but public interest (like "defense" is supposed to be...). The "western way" of privatizing everything means companies have to go for short term goals...

--------------------

Sudan 

The Duran [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQOdT367UTU[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQOdT367UTU makes the point Sudan has been in crisis since it became independent from the UK ....DJ It did break up in an Arab/Islamic North and African-Black/Christian South Sudan...

In the north Egypt is moving towards Russia-with a.o. Russian nuclear energy...In the east Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia now also BRICS+ oriented...In Djibouti China has a major Navy base...Russia was planning to get a small navy "station" in Port Sudan...

DJ-The sources I follow are "mixed" on what role the US is playing...Both the Sudan Army and the RSF-militia did have good contacts with both Russia and China...(Sudan is NOT a democracy...like in Egypt the army is doing a lot of bussinesses. Maybe "breaking up" in an Arab-East and African-West Sudan would give democracy more chances ? In combination with more African "EU-style" cooperation ? )










My next article: The war in #Sudan over power and Gold. Subscribe to read the full articles and more to come. Thank you.

and

180 killed and 1800 wounded in the #Sudan war between the two generals, head of the army and head of the para-military militia, where civilians are the primary victims of two leaders fighting for power. Fierce fighting to control the airports and main military HQs.

-

The Army commander and leader, Brigadier General al-Burhan, was unwilling to pass on the power to a civilian government. However, it doesn't mean that a militia, or paramilitary group, even if they count between 50k to 100k, should take control and destabilise #Sudan.

DJ, It is very likely NATO/US is involved in the Sudan crisis...however since "the west" has lost as good as any bases in Africa a US push for "civil" war in Sudan very likely will only damage the US on the longer term...

Ukraine [url]https://southfront.org/first-german-leopard-2a4-tank-destroyed-by-ukrainian-soldiers/[/url] or https://southfront.org/first-german-leopard-2a4-tank-destroyed-by-ukrainian-soldiers/ ;

The photo reportedly shows the first Leopard 2A4 tank destroyed … by Ukrainian servicemen. Ukrainian crew fell from a hill and  stuck the German main battle tank into the ground and tore the gun away.

The incident took place on a training ground in Poland. It seems that the rapid training on the battlefield abroad was not enough for Ukrainian soldiers.

DJ, modern weapons are "high tech" and need long training...

[url]https://southfront.org/breaking-russian-fab-500-heavy-bombs-reportedly-began-destroying-ukrainian-grouping-in-bakhmut/[/url] or https://southfront.org/breaking-russian-fab-500-heavy-bombs-reportedly-began-destroying-ukrainian-grouping-in-bakhmut/ ;

On the evening of April 17, the western part of Bakhmut was inflamed by large fire. According to preliminary reports, the Ukrainian military positions were hit by Russian high-precision FAB-500 bombs with planning and correction modules.

Presumably, at least one strike hit the fortified area of the Ukrainian 241st Territorial Defense Brigade near Khromovo and the motocross track in Bakhmut. Another strike reportedly hit the intersection of the roads used for transfer of Ukrainian ammunition near the Eighth pond in the west of the city.

The remaining Ukrainian grouping in Bakhmut is massively concentrated in the small area under their control in the west of Bakhmut. Strikes of Russian aviation with heavy bombs will inflict more heavy losses to the AFU and destroy the military equipment transferred to the city. The use of heavy bombs will speed up the liberation of the city and minimize the losses of Russian ground troops.

DJ...there are claims Ukraine could still have 10-15,000 soldiers in the western part of Bakhmut...they are getting killed ...Military Summary claims Ukraine did gather 80,000 soldiers for an offensive (on four targets) near Bakhmut...

[url]https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2023/4/17/lavrov-to-meet-with-brazils-lula-as-us-fumes-over-ukraine-stance[/url] or https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2023/4/17/lavrov-to-meet-with-brazils-lula-as-us-fumes-over-ukraine-stance DJ-Lula Brazil president does NOT support Russia in/on Ukraine however also notices the US is in the way of peace...(the Pope blaimed NATO for provoking the Ukraine war...). Western media/politics (owned by the war industry) claim Lula is spreading Russian propaganda...

DJ-India, Brazil, Indonesia try to "distance" themselves from the Ukraine war...however the US stand "if you are not with us you are against us" is damaging even further the "west"....

The US is incapable to any diplomacy...the west is ignoring history, over focussed on Ukraine/regime change in Moscow...

- US continues push for war with China over Taiwan’s status; - Officially the US (and the UN) recognizes Taiwan as part of China, unofficially the US promotes separatism; 

- China’s attempts to preserve its territorial integrity are depicted by Western governments and the media as “aggression;” 

- China’s military capabilities continue to grow, matching or exceeding US military capabilities;

 - Recent Chinese military exercises launched after Taiwan’s Tsai Ing Wen met with US representatives in the US included simulated precision-guided missile and rocket attacks on targets across Taiwan and an air and sea blockade; 

- Leaked US documents as well as US policy think tanks admit the armed forces of the Taiwan administration lack the capability to defeat any potential Chinese military operation; -

 Talk of creating a weapon stockpile on Taiwan to circumvent any future blockade fails to recognize many of the specified weapon systems have been severely depleted in Washington’s other proxy conflict in Ukraine;   

- Time is ultimately on China’s side, economically Taiwan is heavily integrated with the rest of China and political forces in Taiwan favoring the status quo or closer cooperation with the rest of China are growing in strength; - 

The January 2024 elections in Taiwan and the possibility a more reasonable administration may come into power might trigger increasingly dangerous US provocations between now and then; References:

The Chinese Maritime Safety Administration has announced that the People’s Liberation Army Navy will be conducting a “Major Military Operation” in the Yellow Sea off the Coast of Qingdao on April 18th between 0900 and 1200 Local-Time.

This is the first time they have ever used the term "Major Military OPERATION."   Usually, they say "military exercise(s)"   Now, they're saying "operation."

Not quite certain what this entails.  ALso not certain why they gave less than 24 hours notice.   That part of China is about 12 hours AHEAD of US East Coast.

It is interesting to note Qingdao's location versus Seoul, South Korea . . . 

DJ...China is not in a hurry to "invade" Taiwan...China can block Taiwan (air)ports...Russia no doubt willing to show support...Taiwan is 90 miles from the coast of China...2,000 miles away from a major US base...(allthough the US has bases in South Korea and Japan...Okinawa a.o. is claimed by Taiwan/China and Korea...). 

--------------

In general;

-The US may try to provoke more conflict, trying to break up Russia-China, BRICS, SCO,

-EU may be on the move to save the €/Euro, European economy...(US-biden behind blowing up Nordstream did destroy EU trust in the US...but breaking with the US is a security risk...DJ-Did macron/France discuss the Euro with Xi in China ? Could that explain macron claiming EU interests are not (always) the same as US interests ?). 

-Confrontation instead of diplomacy is destroying the US...

No country in the region is interested in continued instability in the Middle East at a time when talks are underway to bring together yesterday’s adversaries and restore relations between Syria, Iran and the Gulf states. As a result, the Middle East and Africa need an immediate ceasefire, rationality and respect for civilians. There are serious concerns that Sudan could be plunged into a war similar to that in Syria, which has lasted for more than a decade. There is also a severe risk that the war in Sudan could spill over into neighbouring countries, particularly in the volatile Sahel region of Africa.

The African Union has tried to reach out to both sides of the conflict but has yet to achieve a breakthrough, suggesting a lack of willingness on either side to end the civil war. Fighting for control of the presidential palace and airports has prevented a peace delegation from Kenya, South Sudan and Djibouti from reaching Khartoum’s insecure airport. Calls for an end to the fighting from the Arab League, the Gulf Cooperation Council, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, Egypt, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the United Nations, the European Union, the United States and Russia have fallen on deaf ears. Fierce fighting has rocked various parts of the capital and military bases in the east and west. At the same time, official buildings such as state television and several ministries have come under shelling and fire. Both sides are claiming victory over the other, but it is too early to tell which way the war is heading. It is true that the army is better equipped, with mechanised units and air support, and is more likely to have the upper hand in the end. But if the fighting continues, both forces will be exhausted.

DJ, of course the wars in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Ukraine only could go on if the fighters get supplies...some "parties" keep the war going and are able to get "their fighters" supplied...With BRICS+ "taking over" Africa, Latin America it is very likely the US is trying to sabotage BRICS+...

Authored by Joe Lauria via ConsortiumNews,com,

Leaked U.S. intelligence documents have exposed Western disinformation  about Ukraine winning the war. Now the heavy fighting moves to Washington...

DJ, NATO is running out of both weapons and will to keep the Ukraine war going on...








"Zelensky has been buying diesel from Russia...and the Ukrainian president and many in his entourage have been skimming untold millions from the American dollars earmarked for diesel fuel payments."

For the US China is the main "target";

[url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/flash-china-bans-imports-exports-involving-raytheon-and-lockheed-cripples-u-s-defense-industry[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/flash-china-bans-imports-exports-involving-raytheon-and-lockheed-cripples-u-s-defense-industry ;

CHINA WILL NOW ENFORCE ITS FEB 16 BAN ON CHINESE ENTERPRISES FROM CONDUCTING IMPORT & EXPORT ACTIVITIES WITH ABOVE U.S. COMPANIES.   

This is said to include Microchips from "Taiwan, China."  

Of course, the U.S. considers Taiwan to be "independent" but yet adopted the "one China policy."

If Raytheon and Lockheed-Martin cannot engage in Imports/Exports  to or from China, and if the ban on Microchips is enforced, the two most major players in U.S. National Defense manufacturing are immediately crippled.

In addition, the U.S. weapons SALES to Taiwan, will not be able to take place because the missiles and such that Taiwan is trying to buy, cannot now be shipped to Taiwan.

Put simply, China just put a total halt to US defense sales to Taiwan, and crippled the US Defense manufacturing industry by cutting off microchips.

DJ, I think Russia, China are planning a blockade of Taiwan...(so NOT an invasion). Since under UN rules-even accepted by the US !- Taiwan is part of China the US may find itself isolated even more in the conflict the US is trying to create over Taiwan...

Taiwan itself does see it as part of China...

The US still has a major navy/airforce and bases in South Korea, Japan...very limited military in Taiwan itself. Both South Korea and Japan may "distance themselves" from a China-US war...

DJ-Europe will and can NOT support the US in yet another insane war...this time with China. The European economy needs to keep energy/trade going on...lots of EU leaders realize that by now...The European goal was NOT regime change in Moscow ! That is a biden-insanity...

China-with BRICS+, SCO, OPEC+ etc. is trying to limit the coming war by limiting/control of global trade/currencies...to unable the US to keep a major conflict continue after a first major US strike...

IF Russia/China block Taiwan to get it under control the US may seek a confrontation...it can get one...

-Both Russia and China have weapons to destroy US carrier groups...they are willing to use them if need be...The US is aware of that...

-Asymetric warfare-like the US has been attacking Russia/China investments all over the world-may see US supply lines getting destroyed also all over the world...

DJ, US foreign "policy/confrontationism" has resulted in the US in conflict with most of the world...

Some news from frontlines;

-Space (???) [url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/claim-nasa-satellite-crashed-in-kiev-ukraine-reality-russia-downed-nato-military-satellite[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/claim-nasa-satellite-crashed-in-kiev-ukraine-reality-russia-downed-nato-military-satellite ;

Russia downed a NATO military spy satellite.

They _appear_ to have accomplished this by utilizing their brand new Electronic Warfare system, designed specifically to affect Geo-Stationary satellites.

In order to affect a Geo-stationary satellite, Russia's new system must be able to jam all the way out at 22,500 miles from earth.   But if that same Electronic Warfare system was used to hit a lower earth orbiting satellite, the high powered radio emissions would simply overwhelm all systems onboard, likely causing the satellite to completely fail and fall to earth.

That appears to be what has actually taken place.

Sources inside NATO are saying privately that a NATO (West) spy satellite was "taken out" over Ukraine.  In fact, not only is NATO angry, they're quite shocked, both that the Russian tried, and that they succeeded!

Another escalation . . . 

DJ, there are missiles (some fighter jets also can launch them) to hit satelites...High Tech war demonstration could prevent "others" from further escalation...

If Russia/China would be able to fly over a US base with US radar simply not able to detect the planes it could shock the military...

East Asia;

[url]https://southfront.org/us-determined-to-further-escalate-by-supplying-400-anti-ship-missiles-to-taiwan/[/url] or https://southfront.org/us-determined-to-further-escalate-by-supplying-400-anti-ship-missiles-to-taiwan/ ; Faced with the looming defeat in Ukraine, Washington DC is desperate to ensure that it can achieve at least one strategic victory against one of its many geopolitical adversaries. America’s increasingly disturbing obsession with China and the burning desire to at least somewhat offset its meteoric rise are causing countless headaches to the strategic planners in Washington DC, particularly the Pentagon. Beijing’s repeated overtures to find a peaceful solution that could benefit all sides have been flatly refused by the US every single time, leaving China with only one option – to prepare for war. This is certainly not to say the Asian giant wants it, but as President Xi Jinping himself stated, his country is quite literally left with no other option.

-

While “Harpoon” anti-ship missiles are quite dated and are definitely no match for Chinese (let alone Russian) weapons of the same class, deploying 400 of them is certainly a worrying figure for any military. With a range of up to 200 km, the missile is still a threat to all Chinese shipping in the Taiwan Strait, as it perfectly fits the width of the strait (180 km). And while China’s breakaway island province has previously acquired the shipborne and airborne versions of the missile, deployed on warships and F-16 fighter jets, respectively, this marks the first time it has purchased the mobile, land-based version. It offers several distinct advantages over the previous two, particularly the possibility of deploying the launchers across the island’s west coast.

DJ, China may get Russian help in blocking Taiwan...so no US/NATO weapons can reach Taiwan...Taiwan can not export micro-chips without Bejing agreeing on it...

If South Korea delivers weapons to Ukraine Russia will send modern weapons to North Korea...

MENA Middle East North Africa; 








If #Egypt supports al-Burhan (Army) militarily and Heftar (#Libya) supplies ammunition and weapons to Hmedti (militia), the conflict in #Sudan will be out of control in no time.

DJ...there are lots of other conflicts in this region. Egypt-Ethiopia over the Nile/water...There were some stories on North Korean military in Algeria...BRICS may be interested in creating stability in Africa...most African governments simply lack the means to do much governing....

Ukraine

DJ-Bakhmut is close to falling 100% under (pro) Russian control [url]https://twitter.com/Suriyakmaps[/url] or https://twitter.com/Suriyakmaps ...it may push NATO/Ukraine to start a PR campain...Maybe even claiming Ukraine "is winning"...

Military Summary keeps reporting two major developments;

-Ukraine closing dams in the Dnjepr-river...is Ukraine planning to use river water as a weapon...putting low land under Russian control under water ? 

-Ukraine attacking targets in Russia -just over the border...part to hit supplies/logistics...part to show they can...

My view; Ukraine/NATO may try to build up another army for some major action...however Russia is able to hit concentrations of NATO/Ukraine forces...There was also unclear for me info that Russia did manage to destroy NATO-HQ in Kiev and/or Lviv ? One or more military command centers in an underground bunker...

The goal of Russia is to destroy the Ukraine army...taking over Ukraine may be a next step...NATO only has "limited options" left in Ukraine...sending in NATO forces (Poland ?) may be one of them...If NATO wants to "beat Russia" in Ukraine a major air force is needed...however that would escalate the crisis beyond  the point most NATO members want...

Intel

Here in NL military intel warning of China spying, companies trying to get high tech...Russia would gather info on North Sea cables (internet, electricity)...Very likely both warnings may be correct...however the info may not be new...What changed is the US is moving into conflict with both Russia and China...so actions seen as "limited risks" until recent now become "high risk"...

The EU has "limited room" to "move into conflict" with both Russia and China...Europe may need those countries more then they need us...We need Russian energy-it will become a problem next winter... China trade also is a major factor in EU exports...Most of the global population lives in Asia...over 4 billion...For Europe Asia is "next door" ...the US an ocean away...

DJ-My view; NOT selling chip-making-machines to China may result in China making their own chip-making-machines...Soon Asia may be the "high tech zone" ...the "west" again damaging itself...The west banning tiktok, Huawei etc. simply means China will do more bussinesses with "the rest" of the world...

The "west" may be 10% of the global population (EU-UK-US)...BRICS is a larger economy then the G7...so again...confrontation may do much more damage then diplomacy would do...It would be wiser if we IMPORTED Chinese chip making machines to learn how far they are...Closing your eyes is NOT good for intel !

DJ, my view;

"The west' is -in silence- trying to get out of escalation with "the rest". Lavrov-Russian Foreign Minister/FM visiting Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Brazil after an African tour just weeks ago...I would not be surprised if even Mexico would -also- accept Mir-card/Unionpay Russia/China payment systems...welcome Russian, Chinese tourists...

[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/russia-threatens-given-north-korea-advanced-weapons-if-seoul-arms-ukraine[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/russia-threatens-given-north-korea-advanced-weapons-if-seoul-arms-ukraine -outcome; South Korea may NOT send 500.000 shells to the US so the US can send more weapons to Ukraine...

DJ-Again !!! Asia is over half of the global population...present BRICS on their way to 35% of global GDP...(not even by PPP) with BRICS+ it will soon be the major economic bloc together with the SCO...

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZYCpbGQe_k[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZYCpbGQe_k Redacted (did they move from the US to Portugal ?);

Norway has been keeping busy trying to discredit, Pulitzer Prize, winning journalist, Seymour Hersh, by calling his reporting fake news. Also, the Norwegian government is kicking the Russian bear by expelling 15 Russian diplomats and accusing them of spying. All of this comes as the arctic Council is about to be handed over from Russia to Norway, are we witnessing the new front in the war? 

DJ [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svalbard#Dutch_discovery,_exploration,_and_mapping_of_a_terra_nullius[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svalbard#Dutch_discovery,_exploration,_and_mapping_of_a_terra_nullius Spitsbergen (Norwegian; Svalbard) de facto is already an area of Russian-Norwegian conflict...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svalbard_Treaty[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svalbard_Treaty ;

The Svalbard Treaty (originally the Spitsbergen Treaty) recognises the sovereignty of Norway over the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, at the time called Spitsbergen. The exercise of sovereignty is, however, subject to certain stipulations, and not all Norwegian law applies. The treaty regulates the demilitarisation of the archipelago. The signatories were given equal rights to engage in commercial activities (mainly coal mining) on the islands.[2] As of 2012, Norway and Russia make use of this right.

DJ..Russia already has 50% of the Arctic coast...the US-via NATO-is blowing up all kinds of agreements on the Arctic...frustrating the [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctic_Council[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctic_Council ...because the US want to "punish Russia" for Ukraine on every front-trying to get "regime change in Moscow"....

FACEBOOK IS CENSORING SY HERSH His work on the bombing of the Nord Streams is branded as "false information". And that has been "verified by independent fact-checkers". That's ALL you need to know.

Norway worked with the US blowing up Nordstream...western war-industry owned "media" censoring realistic news only showing they are not real "media"-just propaganda outlets...

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctic_shipping_routes[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctic_shipping_routes DJ-If "the west" wants sanctions on Russia and China...the rest of the world may limit trade with the west...However South Korea and Japan "control" the Arctic-China Sea Route...That may explain why "biden & co" now push also for war with China...

Germany will NOT decouple from China. All German carmakers get over 50% of their revenue from China. The president of VW once said, "After this strike, I'll give you a pay rise. Be aware it's entirely paid by your colleagues in China. This is your last pay rise in Wolfsburg."

DJ, the "biden-cult" simply fail to understand lots of major companies are very international....

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volvo[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volvo once was a Swedish car producer;

Automobile manufacturer Volvo Cars, also based in Gothenburg, was part of AB Volvo until 1999, when it was sold to the Ford Motor Company. Since 2010 Volvo Cars has been owned by the automotive company Geely Holding Group. Both AB Volvo and Volvo Cars share the Volvo logo

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geely[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geely

Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co., Ltd (ZGH), commonly known as Geely (吉利 /ˈl/ "auspicious"), is a Chinese multinational automotive company headquartered in Hangzhou, Zhejiang. The company is privately held by Chinese billionaire entrepreneur Li Shufu. It was established in 1986 and entered the automotive industry in 1997 with its Geely Auto subsidiary.[18] Geely Auto is currently the seventh largest automobile manufacturer in China, with 1.328 million sales in China in 2021. Globally, the group sold over 2.2 million cars in 2021,[19] and over 17,926 plug-in electric vehicles in January 2022.[20]

The company produces and sells vehicles under its own branding such as Geely Auto, Geometry, Maple, and Zeekr, and under foreign-located subsidiaries, such as Volvo Cars, Polestar, Lynk & Co, Proton, and Lotus, as well as commercial only vehicles under the London EV Company, Ouling Auto and Farizon Auto brands. It also produces electric vehicles under some of the previously listed brandings, and motorcycles under its subsidiary Zhejiang Geely Ming Industrial (Jiming and Geely brands), Qianjiang Motorcycle (QJMotor and Keeway brands) and Benelli. In September 2022, the group acquired a 7.6% shareholding in Aston Martin Lagonda Global Holdings plc, the ultra-luxury British performance brand Aston Martin.[21]

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus

Airbus SE (/ˈɛərbʌs/French: [ɛʁbys] (listen)German: [ˈɛːɐ̯bʊs] (listen)Spanish: [ˈejɾβus]) is a European[5] multinational aerospace corporation. Airbus designs, manufactures and sells commercial aircraft and has separate Defence and Space and Helicopters divisions. As of 2019, Airbus is the world's largest manufacturer of airliners as well as the leading helicopter manufacturer.[6][7]

The company was founded in 1970 as a collaboration of European aerospace companies to develop and produce a wide-body aircraft to compete with American-built airliners, which would later merge together. Reflecting this multi-national origin, the company operates major offices and assembly plants in FranceGermanySpain, and the United Kingdom, along with more recent additions in CanadaChina, and the United States.

Airbus's registered headquarters is in Leiden, Netherlands, but its head office is located in Toulouse, France.[8] The 'SE' in its corporate name means it is a societas Europaea, which enables it to be registered as a European rather than a national corporation. Its shares are traded in France, Germany, and Spain. The company is led by CEO Guillaume Faury and is a component of the Euro Stoxx 50 stock market index.[9]

The company delivered its 12,000th aircraft in May 2019.[10] In 2016, the company estimated that its fleet had performed more than 110 million flights, totalling over 215 billion kilometres and carrying 12 billion passengers.[11]

DJ...who has what shares in Airbus is one question...the major more important question is where will Airbus sell its products...not very likely the US ! 









THERE'S A RIOT GOIN' ON Growing signs of rebelliousness among the most relevant EU vassal states. They have failed to join China to escape Hegemon vassalage. Now they may turn even strongly to China to do... ... the exact same thing.

DJ, Korea, Japan, the EU NEED to do bussinesses with Asia, Africa, Latin America !!! If US-insanity is in the way the EU has to "distance" itself from the US and hope the US may be able to come up with a government the rest of the world can work with...I think most major US companies must have doubts on wich way the US now is going...

The 2023-24 winter will bring the EU-UK-US major energy problems...and for what ? NATO expansionism ? 

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

The Duran [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8WPrMqIeOM[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8WPrMqIeOM ; Ex-CIA Mike Morell reveals, Blinken behind 'Intel officials Russia disinfo' letter

DJ-my view; The US political system totally derailed...False claims from trump run by Putin to Chinese weather balloons "spying over the US"...MH17 lies...are pushing the world into global conflict.

The world does not need the US....[url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/04/us-cuts-itself-off-from-future-chinese-profits.html[/url] or https://www.moonofalabama.org/2023/04/us-cuts-itself-off-from-future-chinese-profits.html however [url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/filipinos-told-leave-taiwan-return-to-philippines[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/filipinos-told-leave-taiwan-return-to-philippines

Today I received an email from a Filipino source who has family working in Taiwan.  The Philippines are telling anyone from that country working in Taiwan to "Leave Taiwan and return home immediately; war is developing."

and [url]https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/russia-launches-at-least-six-akula-fast-attack-subs-into-pacific[/url] or https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/russia-launches-at-least-six-akula-fast-attack-subs-into-pacific ; Within the past 72 Hours, Russia sortied at least SIX (6) nuclear-powered "Akula" and other model fast-attack submarines into the Pacific Ocean.  It is now believed they are enroute to the U.S. west coast.

DJ....The US keeps pushing for more war...it will see more war...Very likely INSIDE the US...because the US is the global problem...

-China/Russia may block Taiwan-to control import/export...US weapons are welcome-but may end up in China, Russia

-In Ukraine NATO forces are losing the war-western "help" does not replace Ukraine/NATO losses...Even Polish intervention can not make NATO "win"

-The biden-cult goal of regimechange in Moscow is just another illusion...

Russia, China no longer talk with the US. This is worse then any time during the cold war...Most of the world has lost any trust in "the west"....they have alternatives via BRICS+, SCO-de facto Russia, India, China....

The US may start/escalate further on a frontline they created..."Freedom of navigation"-US Navy going via the Taiwan-strait-even with the US official stand Taiwan is part of China...A US submarine sailing through the Kuril Islands-under Russia since 1945...the US now supporting Japan claims on it...

The US will be kicked out of Syria, Iraq...maybe an asymetric reaction to US escalations elsewere...B52's close to St.Petersburg/Kaliningrad...

DJ-NATO members may start wondering what will be next...Is Europe supposed to stop doing trade with Asia because of US insanity ? How much chaos and lies the US population will accept any longer ? 

The pandemic was/is NOT over...XBB.1.16 etc. soon will cause onother healthcare disaster...bojo/biden "living with the virus-lies" only made the matter that much worse...

"We live in interesting times"...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXt3heeqAuk[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXt3heeqAuk Redacted (Portugal) NATO is looking for a way out of Ukraine according to recent reports. These claims come on the heals of mysteriously time document leaks showing the war in Ukraine is unwinnable for NATO unless it wants to launch WW3. The news also follows recent independent reports showing that Russia just destroyed a heavily fortified underground bunker that housed over 300 top NATO and Ukrainian leaders. Why is the media silent on this story?

ISW Updates. A Riot Is Brewing In The Ukrainian Army. Military Summary And Analysis 2023.04.23

confirmed by [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dc-Y2d1-puw[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dc-Y2d1-puw Hindustan Time/India;

An alleged revolt has rocked Ukraine's army amid Russia's ferocious fusillade. According to Wagner Group chief Yevgeny Prigozhin, Ukrainian fighters are dropping their arms and walking out of Kyiv's Bakhmut operations. The statement was in response to a question about Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky reportedly pressing his army to stay put in Bakhmut. Zelensky has turned Bakhmut into an ego battle and has refused to surrender. However, Wagner Boss claims that 90% of Bakhmut is now under Russian control.  

DJ; Several sources now claim Ukraine soldiers not only surrendering to (Pro)Russian forces but even switching sides...The attack by zelensky on the Orthodox Church, the ongoing mass murder-zelensky not willing to go for peace talks...and (MS) zelensky preparing to "win" an upcoming "election" all may be enough for lots of Ukrainians...

A.o. The Duran on "Ukraine joining NATO in pieces"...Poland, Hungary, Romania taking over western Ukraine...DJ Both Ukraine nationalists and Russia will NOT accept this way of moving NATO east...

The EU going for their 11th round of sanctions on Russia, 7th round of sanctions on Iran, discussing sanctions on China...A total bankrupt of western politics...

Macron-France now talking with China on ending the Ukraine war...In Germany only the "greens" -insulting their pacifist voters- welcome more war...Both Social Democrats SDP and "liberal"FDP are getting fed up ...trade unions, big companies see lots of economic damage only getting worse....

The Conclusion: We are at war.

The path forward continues to march onward as described below.That path is now inevitable. In a mercantilist, protectionist environment accompanied by (caused by) collapsing complexity (de-globalized supply chains, trade relationships shredded) weaker countries must pick sides for economic and territorial protection. The world is now a jail. Pick your gang. This side-choosing is also inevitable in the 21st Century new Cold-war climate.


DJ, lots of "European" companies have shareholders and/or clients in Asia....Giving that up is end of bussiness....
