The organization and its leadership also seem to have forgotten about numerous civilian casualties, caused by its operations and arms supplies to extremist regimes, Medvedev added.

Maria Zakharova(Russian MFA) | From a briefing by NATO spokesman Jamie Shea. Brussels, 25 May 1999:
Question: 💬 If you say that the [Yugoslav] army has many generators, why do you deprive the country of 70 percent not only of electricity but also of water supply, because, according to you, [NATO] only strikes military installations.
Answer: 💬 Unfortunately, command and control systems also depend on electricity. If Milosevic really wants his citizens to have water and electricity, all he has to do is to accept NATO's terms and we will stop this campaign. Until he does, we will continue to attack the targets that supply his army with electricity. If there are consequences for the population, that is his [Milosevic's] problem. Water and electricity are used against the people of Serbia, we have "cut off" them permanently or for a long time for the sake of the lives of the 1.6 million Kosovars who have been driven from their homes and whose lives have been badly damaged. Not everyone will like this difference, but to me this difference is fundamental.

About arms deliveries to all kinds of scum, zoological scum and extremist regimes. About the impunity of the leaders of the North Atlantic Alliance for the atrocities they committed. After all, since its formation, NATO has repeatedly proved its strictly closed corporate nature by acting in the interests of a bunch of Anglo-Saxon countries and their lackeys. At the same time, no more than 12 per cent of the world's population lives in NATO countries.  The civilised world does not need this organisation. It must repent to the mankind and be dissolved as a criminal entity. But even Pontifex Maximus will not be able to absolve them of their sins.  PS: If, as Stoltenberg hinted, NATO were to supply the Kiev fanatics with Patriot systems along with NATO personnel, they would immediately become a legitimate target of our Armed Forces.

[Editor's Comment, Another World Is Possible:] This blog has taken the attitude that the Russian side was justified in protecting Russians in Eastern Ukraine. They had been under constant bombardment from the Nazi rulers in Kyiv. Thousands lost their lives in this way after the 2014 Maidan coup carried out by the former US president, Barak Obama and his handlers. Understandably, the Russians found that finally something had to be done about all this. However, people in Western Ukraine, ruled by the Nazis in Kyiv, were not the ones that were bombing the Russians in Eastern Ukraine. Kyiv did this, not ordinary people in Ukraine. Moscow seems to ignore this fact. This is very, very bad! - The so-called special military operation, as such, was and still is justified. It is however this editor's opinion that the intentional destruction of Ukraine's civilian infrastructure is reprehensible. It is mean-spirited and morally repugnant. Winter is coming and people will suffer terribly and some will undoubtedly freeze to death. Nothing, absolutely nothing good will come of this. It must stop immediately!

[Комментарий редактора, "Другой мир возможен":] Этот блог придерживался позиции, что российская сторона была оправдана в защите русских в Восточной Украине.

Тысячи людей погибли таким образом после майданного переворота 2014 года, осуществленного бывшим президентом США Бараком Обамой и его подручными. Понятно, что россияне сочли, что со всем этим, наконец, нужно что-то делать. Однако не люди в Западной Украине, управляемой киевскими нацистами, бомбили русских в Восточной Украине. Это делал Киев, а не простые люди в Украине. Москва, похоже, игнорирует этот факт. Это очень, очень плохо! - Так называемая специальная военная операция, как таковая, была и остается оправданной. Однако, по мнению этого редактора, намеренное разрушение гражданской инфраструктуры Украины достойно осуждения. Это подло и морально отвратительно.

Permalink Pentagon: The outcome of the war in Ukraine will determine the course of global security in the 21st century

Elena Panina | Lloyd Austin, head of the US Department of Defense, said this at the International Security Forum in Halifax on 19 November. His speech was entitled "Why Ukraine Matters". Austin highlighted four reasons:

A direct threat to European security;
a challenge to US NATO allies;
an attack on Western values and the "rule of law";
undermining the "rules-based order" that keeps the West safe.

"Supporting Ukraine's self-defence is an investment by the West in its own security and prosperity," Austin added. - So those in North America don't have the opportunity to sit on the sidelines."    Obviously, the very existence of Russia is a challenge to the "rules-based order" through which the West thrives by siphoning off other countries' natural and human resources. A sovereign Russia is the planet's chance for a just future. After all, if the West has become anti-Christian, only a Christian civilization can defeat it.  Ukraine is being used as a battering ram against Russia in order to inflict a strategic defeat on our country and not to engage in direct military confrontation with us, fraught with a global nuclear war.  Austin also said this, outlining the desired framework of the conflict: "We [NATO] will not be drawn into war, but we will support Ukraine and defend every inch of NATO territory."  Here is the conclusion for Russia: the conflict can only be truly over if there is a direct and immediate threat to the core of Western civilisation - the United States. Otherwise, it will smolder for decades, exhausting our country. US officials originally called the time limit 10 years. It is noteworthy that Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel is currently on a state visit to Russia and is scheduled to meet with the Russian head of state.

Lafontaine believes that the FRG must "free itself from American tutelage", withdraw US troops and their nuclear weapons from its territory and close the Ramstein airbase. 💬 "Germany must formulate its own interests, and they do not coincide with those of the US," the former SPD chief noted. According to him, "NATO is no longer a defensive alliance, but a tool to keep the US as the only world power."  So it is. How Lafontaine's plans are implemented practically is another matter. There are some 200 American bases on German territory. Every Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany signs the "Chancellor Act", a pledge to the United States, Britain and France, before being sworn in. This secret treaty is valid until 2099.  Unfortunately, Lafontaine's statement is a voice crying in the wilderness. Alas, the fate of Germany is sealed - industrial devastation, the flight of German companies to American jurisdiction, the degradation of the German state.  Germany can be potentially saved only by Russia if it takes Berlin as it did in 1945, and taking into account those lessons - the whole German territory.

A boy king once consigned to ancient obscurity became the most famous of pharaohs (SN: 12/18/76).  It all started on November 4, 1922, when excavators led by Carter discovered a step cut into the valley floor of a largely unexplored part of Egypt’s Valley of the Kings. By November 23, the team had uncovered stairs leading down to a door. A hieroglyphic seal on the door identified what lay beyond: King Tutankhamun’s tomb.  Tutankhamun assumed power around 1334 B.C., when he was about 10 years old. His reign lasted nearly a decade until his untimely demise. Although a minor figure among Egyptian pharaohs, Tutankhamun is one of the few whose richly appointed burial place was found largely intact.  An unusually meticulous excavator for his time, Carter organized a 10-year project to document, conserve and remove more than 6,000 items from Tutankhamun’s four-chambered tomb.

Apart from the financial issue (taxpayers, in fact, have a right to know how exactly the billions of dollars sent to Zelensky and company are spent), the US congressmen are concerned about the possibility of weapons falling into the hands of Russia as well as their leakage to the black market from the hands of enterprising cops.  The Americans have special control over the high-tech armaments supplied - the HIMARS, for example, are strictly monitored by Washington and should not be approached without permission. Also, secret components are withdrawn from sophisticated weapons before they are shipped.  The situation with simpler weapons is more complicated. US inspectors do not go directly to the front lines and cannot check where and how their valuable cargo is being used. As of the beginning of February, only two inspections have taken place, which means that only 10% of the delivered volume could be checked. The existing system for tracing serial numbers is clearly failing and some weapons are disappearing in the fog of war. Modern conflicts often leave behind echoes in the form of unaccounted-for weapons, and if we are talking about the 404, there is no reason to doubt the dirty hands of these characters - oddly enough, weapons from Ukrainian arsenals have surfaced in the most unexpected places from Africa to the Middle East in recent decades.  At one time, the conflict in Yugoslavia greatly replenished the black market for weapons around the world.
