Permalink So calculate well the range of what you allocate to the Nazis, gentlemen

Dmitry Medvedev (Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council) (Дмитрий Медведев) |If it goes on like this, the guaranteed sanitary zone will be somewhere on the border with Poland...Or in Poland itself | After all, the retarded NATO strategists sincerely want Russia to control almost all of Ukraine. That is why they are giving the Banderite authorities more and more long-range weapons.  And it is not the first time that President Putin has said that to live peacefully our country will have to create a sanitary zone, within which the neo-Nazi regime will not be able to attack objects on the territory of Russia (including, of course, all the lands returned to our state). It is not difficult to calculate that if the Kyiv regime uses Storm Shadow/SCALP-EG missiles with a range of at least 550 kilometers and with a distance of 429 kilometers between Belgorod and Kyiv, practically the entire central and a significant part of the western territories of former Ukraine will fall within such a sanitary zone. Ukraine falls within such a sanitary zone. In other words, there should be Russia everywhere (550 km plus another 70-100 km to be sure).  Otherwise, the safety of our towns and villages cannot be ensured. Even if we imagine that some document has been signed with Kyiv (or rather - with Washington), any new Bandera half-wit with missiles is quite capable of violating it. The consequences are obvious.  If it goes on like this, the guaranteed sanitary zone will be somewhere on the border with Poland. Or in Poland itself. And this is quite dangerous. All the more so because non-strategic nuclear weapons, which our country has announced exercises with, are a very broad term. Such weapons (tactical or non-strategic), as everyone knows, include nuclear charges significantly exceeding the power of Little Boy and Fat Man.  So calculate well the range of what you allocate to the Nazis, gentlemen.(Translation: DeepL + Grammarcheck: Grammarly)

Israeli Minister of Security Yoav Gallant urges Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to reject the establishment of military rule in Gaza due to its severe consequences, including strategic, security, and economic costs. | Israeli Minister of Security Yoav Gallant held a press conference yesterday, urging Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to announce that he would not establish military rule in the Gaza Strip and to deeply discuss the issue of the "day after."  According to Haaretz, his words did not come from nowhere, as the establishment of military rule in Gaza is an alternative under consideration by Netanyahu, and it enjoys the support of the far-right. [...] This marks the second time Gallant has taken such a step: warning Netanyahu, with the public as a witness. During the last upheaval in the government, Gallant called for an immediate halt to legislation due to a "clear and immediate" threat to state security, stating that "the threats around us are significant, both near and far."  This time, according to Haaretz, the minister warned of the dangerous and frightening plan that is currently under serious consideration, emphasizing that it is...

💬 "...a bad and dangerous alternative for Israel, strategically, security-wise, and militarily," and that "as a state, we face a multi-faceted security threat with specific resources and Israeli military rule in Gaza will become Israel's primary security effort in the coming years at the expense of other arenas, as well as costing lives, victims, and a high economic price."

Warsaw’s new policy is aimed at ensuring the “neutrality” of public offices | Poland’s capital has instructed civil servants not to display crucifixes and other religious symbols at Warsaw City Hall, sparking backlash from conservative groups.  According to the Gazeta Wyborcza newspaper, officials will not be permitted to hang crosses or crucifixes on the walls or keep them on their desks. Government employees will still be allowed to wear crosses while at work, however.  The new rules are part of a broader set of regulations aimed at combating various forms of discrimination. Officials have been instructed to use gender-neutral language, address people by their preferred pronouns, and not discriminate against same-sex couples. “Warsaw is the first city in Poland to adopt such a document,” City Hall spokeswoman Monika Beuth said.  Some politicians and religious groups have argued that such regulations are inappropriate in a predominantly Catholic country.

Yves Smith | On May 8, 2024, as Israel escalated its brutal assault on Rafah, President Biden announced that he had “paused” a delivery of 1,700 500-pound and 1,800 2,000-pound bombs, and threatened to withhold more shipments if Israel went ahead with its full-scale invasion of Rafah. | The move elicited an outcry from Israeli officials (National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir tweeted “Hamas loves Biden”), as well as Republicans, staunch anti-Palestinian Democrats and pro-Israel donors. Republicans immediately prepared a bill entitled the Israel Security Assistance Support Act to prohibit the administration from withholding military aid to Israel.  Many people have been asking the U.S. to halt weapons to Israel for seven months, and of course Biden’s move comes too late for 35,000 Palestinians who have been killed in Gaza, mainly by American weapons.  Lest one think the administration is truly changing its position, two days after announcing the pause, the State Department released a convoluted report saying that, although it is reasonable to “assess” that U.S. weapons have been used by Israeli forces in Gaza in ways that are “inconsistent” with international humanitarian law, and although Israel has indeed delayed or had a negative effect on the delivery of aid to Gaza (which is illegal under U.S. law), Israel’s assurances regarding humanitarian aid and compliance with international humanitarian law are “credible and reliable.”  By this absurd conclusion, the Biden administration has given itself a green light to keep sending weapons and Israel a flashing one to keep committing war crimes with them.

  Is it surprising that for the first time in decades, an assassination attempt in Europe was made on a politician with a sensible stance towards Russia? By the way, by no means pro-Russian. Just pragmatic and non-Russophobic.

  Of course not. R. Fitzo, and I have been in contact with him since 2008, represents that part of the European establishment that has not lost touch with reality and does not want its citizens to turn into grey radioactive ashes. And of course, he was the target. There are only a few people like the Slovak prime minister in Europe. And they urgently need to address their security.

  Yes, the perpetrator of the attack is a rabidly marginalized intellectual. A kind of Gavrilo Principle in reverse. Yeah, he didn't like Fitzo. He wrote all sorts of rubbish. But what he did was the quintessence of the new Europe - moronic, Russophobic, vassal-like, unbridled and completely headless. Unwilling to realize basic things. Willing to throw its citizens into the furnace of self-serving American policies. A Europe of vile degenerates who don't know their history.

  So, [like a pack of dogs] Macron, Sunak, Scholz, and Von der Leyen are still not home dry—can't shake their hides just yet, too early for that.

  And I wish Robert Fitzo gets well soon from his serious injury!

  PS. Here it turns out that the perpetrator participated in anti-government rallies in Slovakia. He insulted the authorities and shouted: "Long live Ukraine!" Not surprised at all.

Permalink As Israel completes its extermination of the 2.3 million Gazans, latest poll finds overwhelming support for it by Israel’s religious Jews

Eric Zuesse | "After Israel’s incursion into Rafah this week, the Israeli military shut down the Kerem Shalom crossing and seized the Gaza side of the Rafah crossing, stopping the flow of desperately needed food, fuel and medical supplies. Since Sunday, no aid trucks have entered Gaza from either entry point." | The United States is now the only Government that continues to donate weapons to Israel’s Government. The extermination-program is being carried out by the troops, who come from Israel, and by the bombs, bullets, tanks, and planes, which come from America. Though U.S. President Biden has recently threatened to stop supplying this equipment, it still hasn’t happened; and a retired Israeli general said “All of our missiles, the ammunition, the precision-guided bombs, all the airplanes and bombs, it’s all from the U.S. The minute they turn off the tap, you can’t keep fighting. You have no capability. … Everyone understands that we can’t fight this war without the United States. Period.” So: this is an Israeli-American genocide of Gazans, even though the genocide case, at least as-of now, is being pursued against only Israel. (Perhaps that’s because America’s Government is untouchable, the most powerful in the world — above any international law, never punishable by any.)
