not only are the #russia pasports for #ukraine not accepted at the border with their new 'Motherland' but they are now being immediately mobilized to be sent as cannon flodder to the front in #russia uniform under Russia command

@JayinKyiv
In Russian occupied Melitopol, those that were dumb enough to accept the offer of a Russian passport were immediately given a summons to the front.

Putin completely humiliated as the carnage goes on. I'm sure the terrorist state will lob a few missiles at civilians after this massive loss.

Like his soldiers, is Putin doomed?

Vladimir Putin is kaput. The proof of that is the below letter, written by a 26-year-old soldier in the Russian army, V.V. Tarasenko. We know nothing about Tarasenko, except that he was a resident of Putin’s brainchild, the so-called Luhansk People’s Republic, and that he has a wife, Valeria, and a small son. We also know that Tarasenko died in battle during the recent Ukrainian offensive in Kharkiv province. Ukrainian intelligence found the letter; the Ukrainian analyst and soldier, Taras Berezovets, posted it on Facebook. The letter was written with little punctation and without capital letters. I’ve added them to make it more comprehensible:

This letter is for the future, if I should die or be taken prisoner or become a vegetable! Written 17.7.22. It is very hard to write, I’m crying, but I must. Beloved Lera, tell [our son] what kind of dad I was, that we were sent as cannon fodder to Zaliman [a village in Kharkiv province]! Without armor, without ammunition, without normal weapons. This is about our situation. When our son grows up, tell him his dad wanted very much to return home to be the best dad ever. I’ve been drinking and I’m writing emotionally. I know that all this will be forgotten and that you will be living your own life, that you’ll find a new husband, that I’ll simply disappear in the war like all the guys. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a normal life. Say that dad was an athlete, didn’t smoke and didn’t drink. It’s terrible that everyone has forgotten me. It’s very hard to accept all this, but all people die. And this cycle can’t be changed. It’s bad to die in the summer. If only I were at the seashore.

To [my] wife.

Tarasenko V.V.

Tarasenko’s fate and complaints are not unique. The Russian leadership, with Putin at the head, has evinced a profoundly cavalier attitude toward lives — not just of innocent Ukrainians, who’ve been the targets of genocide, but also of Russian soldiers and residents of the self-styled Luhansk and Donetsk “people’s republics,” the LNR and DNR, both of whom have been recognized as independent by the Russian Federation. As Tarasenko says, the soldiers of the Russian army are nothing less than cannon fodder. Most likely to be sent to the front without the requisite training, supplies, weaponry and ammunition are the men of the LNR and DNR, many of whom have been forcibly conscripted and sent to die. So much for Putin’s concern for Ukraine’s Russian speakers.

Tarasenko knew that he was cannon fodder; other conscripts must also know that they are doomed. It’s hard to imagine that morale is especially high among soldiers facing certain death for no discernible reason other than the megalomaniacal ambitions and oversized ego of their country’s fascist dictator. It’s even harder to imagine a scenario in which an army consisting of terrified boys who dream of spending time on the beach with their girlfriends or wives can possibly sustain a meaningless war — and least of all, win it.

Tarasenko’s letter presages his death, and it also may foretell Putin’s rapidly approaching end. His war — as should be evident by now even to the Kremlin’s propagandists, German left-wingers and American neorealists — is proving to be one of history’s enormous strategic blunders. Like Napoleon and Hitler, Putin surely faces removal and possible exile on some distant isle or in his bunker.

Local policymakers in St. Petersburg and Moscow evidently agree. On Sept. 8, the Muscovites adopted a resolution stating outright that Putin must go: “We ask that you release yourself from the post [of president] as a result of the fact that your views and your model of rule are hopelessly out of date and impede the development of Russia and its human potential.”

The Petersburgers were even more radical. They proposed that the State Duma, Russia’s moribund legislature, charge Putin with “state treason” with the intent of having him removed from office.

Putin has lost his legitimacy, and a ruler — even a fascist dictator — needs to be deemed legitimate by elites and masses to remain in power. If, as seems likely, the views of Tarasenko and the policymakers in Moscow and St. Petersburg are widespread, then the ongoing decay of the Russian army can only accelerate, and popular discontent can only increase. A social explosion may be inevitable. 

Whatever the scenario, Putin’s end definitely is near, and the world would do well to minimize the chances of his acting even more destructively by hastening a Ukrainian victory and thereby giving a fillip to the Russian democratic opposition and bringing the Putin era to a close as soon as possible.

"Three massive explosions rocked the area by the airfield in Melitopol, the town in Zaporizhia region, which has been temporarily captured by the Russian invasion forces.

That’s according to Melitopol Mayor in exile, Ivan Fedorov, who broke the news on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.
"Just in: three loud blasts in Melitopol, near the airfield, where the occupiers unsuccessfully set up one of their military bases," the official wrote."

DJ, 

We live in crazy days...those that point out talks prevented wars, talks end wars are presented as "pro Putin"...

ksc-you are damaging freedom of expression, a basic idea of democracy by your "postings"...is it possible for you to show some decency ? 

Are you able to show some respect for views that differ from your views ? 

Discussion-different views-can make us stronger...trying to block other opinions by posting-often unreadable-over 10 propaganda level posts is not discussing but blocking another view...

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

A turning point in Ukraine leads to a turning point in Russia: Longtime Kremlin supporters are now calling the war a ‘disaster’


A rout on the battlefield has led to unheard of criticism inside Russia.

The sudden, successful Ukrainian counteroffensive near Kharkiv has been an unpleasant surprise for just about everyone in Russia — for the Kremlin, its propaganda machine, the Ministry of Defense and for millions of patriotically minded Russians. In a matter of just a few days, the Ukrainian flag has been raised over several towns and villages — and at least one major city — that had been held for months by the Russians. Television and social media showed footage of Russian tanks, armored personnel carriers and other military equipment, which the retreating army appeared to have abandoned in a hurry.

Bad battlefield news for Russia isn’t a new thing in this war; bad news that’s shared widely with ordinary Russians, with no filter, is certainly new. So is sharp criticism of the war.

And in the last few days, that’s what Russians have been seeing and hearing.

In a suddenly new information reality, the Kremlin is either unwilling or unable to hide the truth from its people. From day one, the conflict has been called a “special military operation” — by Russian President Vladimir Putin and everyone else in the Russian government and media; calling it vojna, or “war,” was made a crime early on. Now all kinds of people are saying vojna, and saying it openly. Many are saying that the vojna is not being waged well. And they are not buying the Kremlin’s explanations.

The images -- and some video which is still being analyzed -- show a small convoy . . .  very small; of general military transport-type trucks, and some smaller vehicles akin to HUMVEES, traveling via public roads from Russia into Ukraine.

This simple, small, act, changes the ENTIRE dynamic of the Russia-Ukraine situation.   Ukraine, the USA, the UK, and all of NATO, have just found out that China is now an active participant, and came in on the side of Russia.

The stakes in this situation just went so high, they went completely off the charts.

It is no understatement to say this is an earth-shattering development.

With this single, small, almost insignificant action, China has just announced to the whole world that it is now militarily standing with Russia, inside Ukraine.

Super-powers #2 and #3, are now openly, physically, confronting Super Power #1.

It seems to me that we in the USA and our European vassal state "partners" ought to get the message, and get it quick: I personally perceive the message to be "Either this Ukraine nonsense stops now, or open warfare between all three nuclear-armed super-powers is now on the table."

DJ...Russia does support China on Taiwan, China supports Russia on Ukraine...Russia/China east Asia navy drills on their way...[url]https://www.zerohedge.com/weather/powerful-earthquake-shakes-taiwan-buildings-and-bridges-collapse[/url] or https://www.zerohedge.com/weather/powerful-earthquake-shakes-taiwan-buildings-and-bridges-collapse ;

A 6.8 magnitude earthquake rattled much of Taiwan on Sunday, which followed a 6.4 magnitude earthquake Saturday, according to Taiwan's Central Weather Bureau (CWB). 

The magnitude 6.8 quake hit around 2:44 pm local time (0644 GMT), with an epicenter in Taitung county, a town in the eastern part of the island nation. CWB said the quake was recorded at a relatively shallow depth of 7 kilometers (4 miles). 

The US Geological Survey initially reported that the quake registered a 7.2 magnitude but revised it to 6.9 -- still a higher reading than CWB's estimate.

Late on September 18, a series of explosions were reported at the US-led coalition Green Village base in Syria’s northeastern region.

The base is located in the center of al-Omar oil fields in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside. It is one of the coalition’s main installations in Syria. Dozens of heavily-armed coalition troops are usually deployed at the base.

The Syrian state TV said that the explosions were caused by a rocket attack. Fire and several column of smoke were reportedly spotted at the base. However, no casualties have been reported, as of yet.

Just a day earlier, several news sources reported a similar attack on the US-led coalition al-Shaddadi base in the southern al-Hasakah countryside.

The two alleged attacks on the coalition’s bases in al-Omar and al-Shaddadi came after a series of Israeli strikes on the Syrian capital, Damascus. The strikes, which took place in the early hours of September 17, targeted the airport and several positions, including an alleged support office of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Five Syrian service members were reportedly killed.

The coalition is yet to comment on the alleged attacks, which may have been response to the recent Israeli strikes on Damascus.

Last month, Iranian-backed forces attacked a garrison of the US-led coalition in the southeastern Syrian area of al-Tanf with several suicide drones in response to a series of Israeli strikes that targeted air defense bases in Tartus and Damascus. The attack eventually led to a limited confrontation with the coalition.

DJ, "RIC" Russia-Iran-China may think it is time to "deal with US/NATO agression around the globe"...

Written by Alexander Rubinstein. Originally published on The Grayzone

The Ukrainian President published a photograph on his social media channels showing one of his security escorts bearing a patch referencing the personal bodyguard unit of Adolf Hitler.

On September 13, Ukrainian President Vlodymyr Zelensky made a surprise trip to the city of Izyum in the Kharkov Region for a photo op following his military’s recapture of the town from Russian forces. During the visit, a soldier who appeared to be guarding Zelensky was photographed wearing a Nazi-inspired patch on his uniform.

When the image drew criticism on social media, the Ukrainian president’s official Telegram and Facebook accounts quietly deleted it.

In Izyum on September 14, Zelensky participated in a flag raising ceremony to the tune of the Ukrainian National Anthem and took selfies with local civilians and soldiers. While most of the men on the scene wore official military fatigues, it was not difficult to see which ones were for lack of a better term, working, and which ones were simply present to participate in the event.

One photograph posted on Zelensky’s Telegram and Facebook accounts (archived here and here) captured the president as he posed for selfies with Ukrainian troops. As Zelensky flashed a smile for the camera of a cheerful service member, he was flanked by a heavily equipped soldier standing guard and facing the opposite direction. Just over Zelensky’s right shoulder, a small but significant patch could be seen on the back of the soldier’s flak vest.

Social media users quickly identified the symbol. It was derived from the “Totenkopf,” (German for “Death’s Head”), an insignia widely used in Nazi Germany. Badges incorporating the skull and bones motif were popularized by Germany’s Death’s Head Units, whose original task was to serve as guards at concentration camps. In October 1939, some 6,500 members were deployed as frontline fighters in the attempted conquest of Europe and the Soviet Union, carrying out war crimes and ethnic cleansing on their way.

DJ, The US, NATO is working with IS, alquaida terrorists ...neo-nazi's...is there no limit ? The SF link has lots of other links to nazi-symbols in use by "NATO supported Ukraine fighters"...

-Another outcome of the SCO-Samarkand meeting (besides China PLA forces moving into Ukraine) [url]https://southfront.org/financial-support-for-syrian-opposition-coalition-in-turkey-has-been-suspended/[/url] or https://southfront.org/financial-support-for-syrian-opposition-coalition-in-turkey-has-been-suspended/ ;

The backers of the National Coalition of Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, commonly known as the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), had suspended their financial support, Sputnik reported on September 18.

According to the Russian news agency, the decision to suspend financial support to the Istanbul-based coalition came as Syrian opposition leaders are preparing to travel to the United States to attend a United Nations meeting.

Sources with knowledge on the issue told Sputnik that the countries that backs the SOC stopped covering the financial expenses, personal expenses and travel fees that result from political and social activities, seminars and meetings held by coalition members in Turkish cities.

“Suspending financial support for [the SOC] activities is not the only thing that reveals a change in the mood of the countries backing the coalition, as the salaries of coalition members have also been delayed during the past two months for more than 15 days,” one of the unnamed sources said.

The receives financial support from several countries. Its members are also paid monthly salaries. All the money is usually funneled through Turkish authorities.

Sputnik said that Syrian opposition leaders are now trying to secure funding for their upcoming trip to the US. Even their closest ally, Turkey, has refused to pay for the trip.

The SOC was formed in the Qatari capital of Doha less than a year after the outbreak of the war in Syria with the aim of overthrowing the regime in Damascus. Soon later, the coalition established its headquarters in Istanbul city. This allowed Turkey to dominate much of the coalition’s internal and foreign affairs.

A recent report by Sputnik said that Turkey has asked the SOC to leave its territory before the end of the year. While this is yet to be officially confirmed by Ankara, recent developments suggest that this may be true.

After the release of the report, Reuters revealed that intelligence chiefs of Turkey and Syria held a series of constructive meetings in the Syrian capital, Damascus, over the last few weeks.

As Turkey is working to restore relations in Syria, the SOC is increasingly becoming a burden. Ankara may have threatened to expel the coalition and suspend all financial support for it in an attempt to pressure its members into accepting a political settlement that favors Damascus.

DJ, Erdogan was willing to meet Assad-Syria in Samarkand-somehow Assad could not go there...but Syria-Türkiye relations may be improving...Just like Tussia, Iran, Iraq they want the US/NATO out of Syria and Iraq...The US is there against the will of the Syria/Iraq government stealing oil...

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

This was in 2018. A little-noticed provision in the 2,232-page government spending bill passed last week bans U.S. arms from going to a controversial ultranationalist militia in Ukraine that has openly accepted neo-Nazis into its ranks.

DJ...what I hate most is "we"...the "west" are -again- supporting nazi's to fight Russians...Around 10-15 years ago western youngsters were recruited to join IS agaist Assad in Syria...The CIA had second hand trucks send to IS [url]https://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/15/us/texas-plumber-sues-car-dealer-after-his-truck-ends-up-on-syrias-front-lines.html[/url] or https://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/15/us/texas-plumber-sues-car-dealer-after-his-truck-ends-up-on-syrias-front-lines.html 

France was importing cheap oil from area's under IS control when the IS terror attacks in Paris happened...

I do not like it...I hate it....


The simplistic mindset of westerners can be illustrated by the fact that they imagine Chinese support for Russia since the onset of the Ukraine war would all be in the public domain. The extent of such a naive attitude is childlike.


DJ, Iran drones are now in use in Ukraine on the Russian side and "doing a good job"...better then the Turkish drones did Ukraine used...Those Turkish drones did "well" in Azerbaijan against Armenia ...but Russia has no problems with Turkish drones...

I think HT claims of a (small ? symbolic ? The Chinese military convoy entering Ukraine in support of Russia does need more proof. However the Chinese message is meant for US/UK/NATO intel...IF there are such Chinese convoys sending supplies, trucks etc. to support Russia western intel will know...(DJ, Maybe China sending support via rail ? Western satellites can pick that up...Russian/China social media will post video/photo evidence...).

-[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gc3HCjwhQrM[/url] or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gc3HCjwhQrM The New Atlas, min 26 western foreign policy is a disaster...from the New Atlas;

Update on Russian military operations in Ukraine for September 18, 2022 

- Ukrainian offensives in Kherson and Kharkov have both ground to a halt; 

- Near Kherson, a Russian strike on a dam up-river of the Ingulets has flooded crossings, isolating Ukrainian bridgeheads east of the river; 

- Ukrainian forces have been fighting for days attempting to take eastern Kopiansk with no success as Russian reinforcements arrive; 

- Potential Ukrainian offensives elsewhere are still a possibility; 

- Winter fighting may see Russian military aviation given the advantage as Ukrainian forces' ability to hide in forests diminishes; 

- The US is sending fewer and fewer weapons and ammunition to Ukraine; 

- Future talk of sending advanced weapons from Patriots and F-16's, to Grey Eagle drones and Leopard main battle tanks ignore how impractical this aid would be;

DJ, The New Atlas remarks Russia did find winter wars in Chechnia (DJ, against western/Gulf supported jihadi's...Uyghurs-from China were fighting in Syria on the IS side..meant to fight China in western China...)

Patriot missiles failed in Saudi Arabia confronted with drones/cruisemissiles, Leopard-2 German tanks in use by Türkiye in Syria were destroyed by IS and Kurdish (both US supported) fighters..

The west hardly is sending enough weapons to Ukraine to compensate for the-massive-losses...

DJ-My view is Ukraine most likely will NOT be able to get enough military together for any relevant offensive...Ukraine is running out of fuel, weapons and most likely military willing to go to the frontlines...

-We did have disarmament agreements with the Soviet Union/Russia till trump decided not to renew them, there was an Iran-deal ! The US went for a "One China" policy...What is wrong with renewing, sticking, to a foreign policy that had diplomacy ? Certainly if the alternative is Russia-Iran-China (and most likely others !) now seeking confrontation with "the west/NATO" on many frontlines? 

DJ-Western foreign policy disasters are NOT weakening Russia but self destructive for the west (as The New Atlas a.o. claim). It is stupid...we should do better !

How do you justify this as a viable source?

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler%27s_wealth_and_income#Nazi_Party_funds[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler%27s_wealth_and_income#Nazi_Party_funds has viable links..

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collaborations_between_the_United_States_government_and_Italian_Mafia[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collaborations_between_the_United_States_government_and_Italian_Mafia ...to a certain level I understand such cooperations between intel and organized crime...however if intel goes into crime to finance some of their operations it is another matter...

Of course you had the [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opium_Wars[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opium_Wars NL had the opium-trade-monopoly in the Dutch East Indies till 1948...France, the UK etc. had similar opium trade by governments...

In many countries you had a constitution making a difference between "citizen" and "subject"...People living in colonies were "subjects"...with much of the white colonizers "citizens", in a much better position..Speaking of colonialism a way to take over a country was supporting a "weaker party" against the local dominant power...That is how India, Indonesia local kingdoms roled into a western colonial agenda...the pattern (support of a weaker party -but getting things in return) is seen in modern wars...

[url]https://www.thesiriusreport.com/about/[/url] or https://www.thesiriusreport.com/about/ like [url]https://www.moonofalabama.org/[/url] or lots of others need some privacy for security reasons...I try to get info from lots of different sites...

[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holodomor[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holodomor does explain why Ukraine welcomed the nazi's in 1941...stalin was worse...I think also one of the aspects of world war two was a "western double fight"; beating fascism/axis powers...but also limiting communism...a major power in many European occupied countries...In practice this could mean western governments/intel from London informing the Germans on communist activities...[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Condor[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Condor and [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Gladio[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Gladio were part of a long term anti-communist war...

Some historians claim the Russia-US conflict started in the 19th century with Russia moving east, US moving west...Selling "Russian America/Alaska" was part of this conflict...

DJ-Why did I start this "nuclear war" item to begin with ? 

Pandemics have a background...the Spanish Flu has to be linked to World War One...the Plague had war-links...major pandemics are often related to things like war, trade, (Russian Flu to railways...)..I think we live in "very interesting times" but I want to limit the war-part to its pandemic links...[url]https://www.coronaheadsup.com/europe/ukraine/ukraine-nearly-5000-covid-cases-in-dnipropetrovsk-oblast-in-one-week/[/url] or https://www.coronaheadsup.com/europe/ukraine/ukraine-nearly-5000-covid-cases-in-dnipropetrovsk-oblast-in-one-week/ has much more pandemic links then the Sirius Report has...

Does this answer some of your remarks ?

... and there's still a few putin puppets claiming Ukraine/Nato are running out of weapons. It's no wonder russia is using antiquated stocks and begging other terrorist states for their's too.

Russia also planning short term referendum in parts of Ukraine to include them in Russia. NATO will NOT accept that. 

DJ-Lots of "info-traffic" major event may be brewing...

DJ, 

To form an opinion I use lots of sources themselves also using lots of sources...I do not want to discuss those sources-they are not the point I want to make...

Frontlines;

Ukraine; reason for conflict is the 2008 admission to NATO "in time" at a Bucharest-Romania NATO meeting. Georgia also would join NATO. Most European countries did NOT welcome that idea then...they knew Russia would NOT accept it...still the US/UK pressed on..other NATO members focused on the "not now-in 2008-part...

We had the 2014 coup/"revolution"...Ethnic Russians did not agree with the pro-western regime...so we did see a civil war with Kiev getting lots of NATO support-prior to become a NATO member...

Russia claims Ukraine was preparing a major offensive against ethnic Russians in february 2022-the "Special Military Operation" was-Russian view- to protect ethnic Russians in Ukraine..Shelling by NATO-pro Kiev forces (with extreme right wing elements/support) had killed thousends of ethnic Russians. 

Crimea-after a referendum already had returned to Russia (was part of Russia till 1956...). Some other regions (Kherson, Zaparozije, and Luhansk/Donetsk "republics") will see a referendum september 23-27. If those 4 regions join Russia then the Russian Army will move in...Any attack on those regions will see [url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collective_Security_Treaty_Organization[/url] or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collective_Security_Treaty_Organization being activated. Belarus is already preparing for war....

Iran did send suïcide drones, there are claims of China sending in munition/weapons...Some media claimed North Korea did offer to send 100,000 military in support of Russia. 

At the SCO-Samarkand meeting India, China, Iran blamed Ukraine for not willing to go for peace talks. Türkiye hosted talks -reached an agreement-but bojo (UK former pm) visiting Kiev ended all hopes on talks...Most non-western countries (from Brazil, Mexico to India, Indonesia) blame the west for escalation...See the Ukraine crisis as an outcome of western provocation...

DJ-The referenda will go ahead, most likely the result has to be 4 oblasts/regions follow Crimea in joining Russia. Any (further) attack on them will be seen as an attack on Russia itself...

-Taiwan...even the US claims to accept Taiwan is part of China (One China policy...) still it is dealing with Taiwan as a US ally against China. China does NOT accept that. 

DJ-A very likely short term perspective will be a Chinese/Russian blockade of Taiwan to force Taiwan to accept Bejing rule..."biden would defend Taiwan"...we will see...

-Iran did see talks on a new deal with the west break down...trump stepped out of the old Iran-deal...Iran is now in the process of becoming an SCO member... It is a major link for Russia(-Iran-) India trade, part of TIP Türkiye-Iran-Pakistan "land bridge" for China western trade...There have been talks with Saudi Arabia...Israel/US/NATO is fighting (pro)Iran groups in a.o. Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen...(the Saudis are trying to end the Yemen-war without losing face...)

Israel was thinking of an attack on Iran nuclear installations out of fear of an Iran nuclear weapon arsenal...Israel itself has nuclear weapons-but does not want other counties in the region to have them...However both the US and Saudi Arabia are NOT willing to support Israel in a major attack on Iran...Even in the most optimistic Israeli scenario's an attack on Iran may "damage/slow down" Iran its nuclear program...but Iran and its allies could do very major damage to Israel in reaction...

-India...Modi knows Putin already 22 years...Xi-China and Putin also have friendly relations...One of many reasons why Modi did not go to the UK funeral is the UK colonial past...destroying and terrorizing India till 1948...The UK-"new" PM liz truss, calling for a global nato is a western alternative-seen in many places as neo-colonialism-most countries do NOT welcome...

Again-India thinks "this is no time for war" so India wants Ukraine (NATO) to go for diplomacy...

-The "west" still unwilling to go for any form of compromise...in Ukraine, on Taiwan...even not able to restart an Iran-deal...The west keeps supporting regime-change wars, coups, terrorism...(for Türkiye support for the Kurds is terrorism, for Russia-Iran-China US support for jihadi-groups is terrorism...India and Pakistan may want to blame the US for Kashmir...easy way out...)

DJ-Maybe the major outcome of the SCO meeting in Samarkand may be growing defense cooperation between its (future) members...There have been "RIC" Navy drills (Russia, Iran, China in the Sea of Oman...Atlantic Ocean...) , The Vostok-drills in eastern Russia had also military from China, India, Venezuela, Nicaragua...(the last two not part-yet-of the SCO...). Russia-Türkiye work together in the north of Syria...in weapon programs...

Another outcome is "progress on a SCO/BRICS (etc) alternative for the US$ for international/global trade...

DJ-Will we now see "World War Three"? 

I think that is up to "the west"...in wich the "west" is divided in many fragments; Japan may get very close to an East Asia conflict, Australia/New Zealand need the Asian market, the EU has a major economic problem...so does the UK...even the US may not escape from it...Most of the west also in a growing political crisis...Again "united/union" under stress like not seen in decades...

Macron-France tried to get in contact with Putin...for now Putin is closing that door...Israel may try to seek security against Iran and hope Russia/China can mean more then the US/NATO...

The US mid-term elections do not "look good" for biden...however there is-also in most of Europe-no real "ready to use" alternative...

Two scenario's;

-Due to social unrest, economic collapse the west is willing to go for (indirect) talks or

-The west goes on further escalating the wars...to find out Russia is NOT isolated at all...

DJ-Sadly it looks like (most of) the west will push for more confrontation/escalation increasing the risks for "major conflict"...Türkiye, Hungary, South Korea may not follow that west...

We live in "interesting times"...
