Stop The Denial: Ukraine Is A Proxy War That Will Lead To Wider World War

May 19, 2022

By Brandon Smith

At the onset of the Russian incursion into Ukraine I argued in my article ‘Order Out Of Chaos: How The Ukraine Conflict Is Designed To Benefit Globalists‘ that US boots would be on the ground within a few months. I was wrong – As it turns out, US and European military boots were ALREADY on the ground. Ukraine was a proxy war from the very beginning.

But what is a proxy war, really? It means that Russian troops are fighting Ukrainian soldiers that are intermingled with western “advisors” and most likely US and European special forces, not to mention US intelligence operatives utilizing all the information gathering technology at the disposal of the Department of Defense. In other words, Russian soldiers are being killed by Western assets. Some pro-Ukraine people might ask why this is a problem?

To understand the gravity of this situation we have to first examine the historical significance.

The closest event in history that I could approximate Ukraine to is Vietnam, when communist elements within the country were receiving constant aid, weaponry and even some troops from China, along with monetary and technological aid from the Soviet Union. Vietnam was essentially a “safe” arena or cage match between the West and Communism; a place where the paradigm players could fight it out without risk of a larger nuclear exchange. The globalists could sit back, relax and watch the show while Americans sacrificed their lives over a conflict that did not need to exist.

Ukraine is similar, but the stakes this time are much higher. This is probably why the mainstream media and the White House have been in full denial that Ukraine is a proxy war at all, and have consistently downplayed the complex involvement of Western military assets. The fact is that Ukraine would have fallen completely by now had it not been for the fact that Russia is not really facing Ukraine; it is facing a proxy force of US and European support elements feeding intel, weaponry and likely direct kinetic support.

In my article ‘Ukraine Learns The Value Of An Armed Citizenry, But Far Too Late,’ published on March 2nd, I noted that the Ukrainian “militia” programs being instituted at the last minute while Russia troops swiftly marched across the Donbass were a side show. The media was acting as if citizens with no more than a couple of weeks of training were going to make some kind of difference in the war; this was nonsense. In my view, the insurgency narrative was meant as cover for well trained Western assets already in place with advanced anti-tank and anti-aircraft technology. As I stated in that article:

Today, as Russia invades, the Ukrainians don’t even have basic [defense] measures in place. Their ability to hold off the Russians at all is predicated on American missile systems like the Javelin which are being steadily funneled into the Ukrainian military.

Also, the methods which Ukrainian forces are using to ambush Russian armor columns are rather advanced and familiar. I suspect the possibility that there are outside military “advisers” (perhaps US advisers) on the ground right now in Ukraine. The advanced guerrilla-style ambush tactics and the results look similar to training that is often given to Green Berets or SAS. The UK did send anti-tank weapons along with a small group of “trainers” to Ukraine in January.

Maybe I am mistaken, but if this is the case it would be diplomatically disastrous if such adviser teams were ever discovered to be involved in the fighting…”

Not long after I wrote this, a stream of information leaks revealed that US and EU military involvement was far deeper than I had expected.

French journalist and Le Figaro senior international correspondent Georges Malbrunot came back from Ukraine with revelations that Americans are “directly in charge” of the war on the ground. He added that he and the volunteers he was with “almost got arrested” by the officials and that they were forced to sign a contract “until the end of the war” which denied then the right to tell the public about the circumstances they witnessed.

Citing a French intelligence source, Malbrunot also tweeted that British SAS units “have been present in Ukraine since the beginning of the war, as were the American Deltas.”

This was obvious from the advanced tactics being used by “Ukrainian” forces to stall the Russian advance, but the first hand accounts confirm the problem is real. The New York Times and other media outlets have been publishing rare admissions of US involvement in intelligence sharing with Ukrainians which have led directly to the deaths of multiple Russian generals as well as the destruction of major assets such as troop transport planes and the Russian flagship Moskva.

In the meantime, Pentagon officials and Joe Biden have incessantly denied that Ukraine is a “proxy war.” If it’s not a proxy war, then I don’t know what is. Without US, UK and EU involvement, there is NO WAR. It would already be over and Ukraine would have surrendered weeks ago.

People can argue whether or not this is a good thing or a bad thing. As I have mentioned in multiple articles, I have no feelings either way because the entire event appears to be a distraction from the much more important threat of global economic decline and the inflationary crisis. The thing to remember here is that this is indeed a proxy war and that the very presence of American and European military assets on the ground in Ukraine could be used as a rationale by Russia to expand their operations far beyond the Donbass region.

Not only that, but it also justifies wider tactics that directly target the US and Europe. For example, a proxy war allows Russia to reasonably argue in favor of completely cutting off the EU from oil and natural gas resources, which Europe relies on for around 40% of its energy needs. It justifies Russian economic strategies including alliances with China to cut out the US dollar as the world reserve currency. And, I continue to expect cyberwarfare attacks sometime this year as a result of the Ukraine situation. At the very least, such attacks will be blamed on Russia and China whether or not they are actually responsible.

Does the presence of US and European troops in Ukraine mean a global nuclear war is imminent? It;s unlikely. Just as Vietnam did not lead to a nuclear war between Russia, China and the US despite the NVC receiving steady supplies and training from Soviet and Chinese forces, there is minimal chance that global nuclear war will erupt from the Ukraine. Mutual destruction does not serve the interests of the globalists, at least not if they hope to predict the outcome in the slightest.

That said, I would not be surprised to see at least one mushroom cloud somewhere in the world this decade within a regional conflict. Also, world war does not have to become nuclear to be disastrous.

Sadly, because of Hollywood movies a large number of people have misguided notions of what World War III might actually look like. Entertainment media always depict WWIII as happening in a flash, an instant in which missiles are launched and a broken civilization of survivors is left to pick up the pieces. What they never show is a long grinding war of financial attrition, supply chain disruptions, cyber attacks, and drawn out regional battles in which Americans are shipped overseas to die for no purpose other than to pretend that these territorial disputes are somehow “our responsibility.”

What I see in Ukraine is the beginnings of a war unlike any other; a war in which the weapons are primarily indirect and financial rather than kinetic. Because of global interdependency in trade many Western nations have been left utterly defenseless in this kind of conflict. We don’t have the ability to fight back because our economic systems are built around a model that demands we abandon domestic production and rely on the resources and industry of other nations.

This is never more true than in our relationship with China, which controls around 20% of all export goods into the US. China has closely allied with Russia. This is not going to change because they know that there is nothing the West can do to about it; there is far too much economic leverage involved. Furthermore, the events in Ukraine are probably a precursor to China’s own invasion of Taiwan.

If this is the plan, then China would have to wait for optimal weather conditions after the monsoon season, sometime in September. This would start with missile bombardment and infrastructure attacks, followed by an amphibious assault sometime in early October.

The proxy war in Ukraine is a key moment in history going forward (along with the potential invasion of Taiwan), because it offers global power interests with dreams of a “Great Reset” the ability to offload the worldwide economic crisis they created years ago onto the “tides of fate.” They can say that the collapse only happened because of the hubris of sovereign nations and “meaningless borders.” If the US and Europe are directly involved in the killing of Russian troops, and this is widely exposed, then the Russian side of the narrative become clarified and the Western side becomes muddled. Direct Russian retribution becomes logical and rational rather than the crazed reaction of a nation led by a madman as the mainstream media claims.

Both sides of the Kabuki theater have to feel as though they are justified in escalating a small war into a world war. That is how this has always worked. When the working class population gets a little too unruly and the threat of rebellion against the establishment is at hand, the elites start a war. It’s like clockwork. This tactic weakens the general population, wears down the number of fighting age men that might have otherwise presented a threat to the ruling class and creates enough fear and panic to convince the public to trade away more of their freedoms.

The wild card right now is the US and European populations, and to some extent the Russian citizenry, and how they respond. The old joke is “What if they held a war and nobody showed up to fight?” This is a potential reality right now as it is in the hands of the public how far the Ukraine issue goes. Are most Americans and Europeans willing to send their sons and in some cases daughters to fight and die over the Donbass? Are Russian citizens willing to fight and die beyond the borders of Ukraine?

A lot of people are engaging in big talk lately, but is this really the hill they are ready to die on? I think not. Why? Because deep down most people know that this war is a farce, a play on the global chess board by elitists with nefarious aspirations. They know that the reasons for the war are not pure, on either side. They virtue signal in favor of Ukraine, but they will never be willing to go and risk their lives for Ukrainian soil. Nor are they willing to risk a family member’s life for Ukraine.

I suspect that the globalists know this by now, as the narrative has been shifting away from trying to convince Americans that open military involvement is needed. They will switch to the economic side of the conflict in the hopes that fiscal disaster will fog the minds of the public and make them more willing to support wider war tomorrow.

    This all seems so staged at this point. It’s as if TPTB all realize that the financial house of cards are heading towards collapse from decades upon decades of fiscal mismanagement and obscene debt creation and are using Ukraine and Russia as cover to reset the system.

      @Bob, yup! Instead of a quick fight against the globalists and their political puppets, it’s instead like never ending “Chinese water torture”.
      @Brandon, I can’t believe I initially missed the symbolism of the picture of the “it’s not over until the fat lady sings” in your last article…which matched what you were essentially saying that the good [economic] times are over now that you expect the Fed to raise interest rates and tighten spending. On that note, they say housing prices collapsed by about 2/3 from the Great Depression. Do you predict something similar this time around?

    While I’m somewhat skeptical that US citizens haven’t been brainwashed enough to clamor for boots on the ground in Ukraine, it’s rewarding that the DHS Ministry of Truth has at least been put on hold. Brandon, I’m praying that your estimate of no nukes is correct. What is the potential for a cyber or kinetic disruption of US power grids?

    • Gauntlet33 May 19, 2022 at 2:34 pm

      Hey Hillbilly, I’m also curious about Brandon’s response. In the meantime, I’ll report that suddenly (starting yesterday and happening again today), my wife and I can’t call each other on our cell phones even though we have perfect reception. And 90% of our texts aren’t going through. This may be part of THEIR grid down scenario that they’ll blame on the Russians. Also, you preppers out there likely know that the mainstream music industry “predicted” a “Grid Down” when Public Enemy sang this song:
      Socially Engineered Anarchy Induced Chaos
      Code name SEAIC
      All around
      Without the sound
      Uncle Jam’s Army
      We are here
      Uncle Jam’s Army
      We are here
      What ya gonna do when the grid go down?

      How they gonna play us?
      One against the other
      What ya gonna do when the grid go down?
      Son against his mother
      Socially Engineered Anarchy Induced Chaos
      All around
      Can’t distract us
      Socially Engineered Anarchy Induced Chaos

      Him against his brother
      What ya gonna do when the grid go down?
      Uncle Jam’s Army reporting for duty

      The power grid is generally resilient to cyber warfare, as I understand it. The internet itself, though, is not. Only a few CDNs (Content Delivery Networks) allow the internet to function as it currently does. If just ONE were brought down by a cyber attack a large portion of internet commerce would go down. It would be a disaster.

  • kmose May 19, 2022 at 12:45 pm

    I just don’t see how anybody can take any war seriously when all of Russia’s and China’s
    (and the world’s) oligarchs, including Putin and Xi, have have their money in the same Wall St and City of London banks, and invested in the same corporations and in real estate in the same European capitols and US coastal cities. They expect everyone to die for their country and no one demands in turn that these leaders prove every single dime they have is in rubles/renminbi and invested in Russian/Chinese assets. If this war is so acrimonious and total, then shouldn’t Jerome Powell try to kill the head of Russia’s central bank at the next BIS meeting? If the east really wanted to defeat the west they could just target the BIS headquarters and make it known that western central bank buildings and bankers are being targeted and that would collapse confidence and western society quickly. But nobody in power wants that. America, Russia and China don’t want anything that might be destablizing, it’s obvious they just want poor people, particularly fighting age males, to kill each other. In early 2020 the world’s governments launched a coordinated attack against humanity, and that’s the only war there is.

    As you suspect, Brandon, this war in Ukraine is looking more and more like a huge distraction from the impending global economic and financial Armageddon, given the globalists’ goals (for Next Fall?).
    I get the impression that the massive pro-Ukraine propaganda of the Western mainstream media is mainly aimed at Westerners to make them feel that they are on the right side and that the very costly sacrifices they will have to make are “justified.”
    About this war, two views from the “other side”:

  • Serge May 19, 2022 at 2:29 pm

    Next Sunday, May 22, the Davos Forum meets in Switzerland. “Obviously, Russia is excluded…
    Many world problems will be discussed: war, pandemics, shortages, economic “uncertainties”, etc.
    Regarding global economic threats:
    Indeed, the third world war is a global economic war. Its effects will be dramatic for those who are not at all prepared.
    We must learn resilience; and very quickly for those who are late.
    P.S.: In the special edition of “The Economist: The World in 2019,” four horsemen of the Apocalypse appeared:
    In John’s revelation, the first rider rides a white horse, carries a bow and is given a crown – he steps forward as a Conquest figure, perhaps invoking Pestilence, Christ or Antichrist. The second carries a sword and rides a red horse; he is the creator of (civil) war. The third, a food vendor on a black horse, symbolizes Famine. He carries the Scales. The fourth and final horse is pale, and he rides Death, accompanied by Hades. “They were given authority over a quarter of the earth, to kill by sword, famine and pestilence, and by means of the beasts of the earth” (see Wikipedia). Recently, a cartoonist or caricaturist added the knight of misinformation…
    The globalists love occultism and mystical symbols, don’t forget that.

    Well, the PTB seem to have ‘tipped their hand’ this afternoon, no sooner had the Senate PASSED the $40 Billion in AID to Ukraine than Biden almost instantly asked for another $100 million. Catch that announcement over at ZH.
    Another thought occurs to me at this point, that being since Ukraine is RENOWNED money-laundering State what is the likelihood that this is simultaneously an effort on the part of the Political class to ensure the health of their “Golden Parachutes’ before setting on into the Sunset?
    Food for thought…

    Here’s the latest article by PCR. It just shows that Putin and Russia are in on the game. Unfortunately for PCR, he’s totally oblivious to it. He doesn’t see the globalists shell game being played.

    Paul Craig Roberts

    Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, is the most demonized person in the western world since Osama bin Laden and Adolf Hitler. Hillary Clinton says Putin is “the new Hitler.” US President Biden says Putin is too evil to be permitted to stay in office.

    Despite these hard characterizations of the Russian leader, the Kremlin has only recently given up on negotiating peace with the West and with the West’s Ukrainian puppet. Indeed, it is unclear that the Kremlin has yet seen the writing on the wall. The Atlanticist Integrationists are still operating in Russia and they still are willing to give up Russian sovereignty for inclusion in the West. Putin seems unable or unwilling to get rid of those Russians who constrain Russian foreign and economic policy in the West’s interests.

    Putin’s mistake is that he is a 1950 American university liberal, a believer in international law, in mutual respect and cooperation, in resolving conflicts with diplomacy. Putin and Russia are in trouble because Putin continues to believe in moral behavior when the West has made it clear that the only value is US hegemony.

      PCR ignores Putin’s many globalist friends and associates, including his long time associates at the WEF. If Putin was actually anti-globalist, then he would not have long term relationships with said globalists. I don’t see people like Ron Paul or Rand Paul palling around with globalists; Putin does not need to either. So, one can only deduce that he associates with them because he WANTS TO.

      So the expression ‘Not agreement capable’ is not applicable?

  • pete papageorge May 20, 2022 at 5:17 am

    We all know what is going on here…

    COVID was weaponized for the globalists to enact new powers. In the U.S. the weaponized COVID was used to cheat on the elections and get low life Biden in. With Elon Musk exposing the fake Twitter accounts and bot’s, reading a recent audit done on Biden that showed almost half of Biden’s Twitter followers are indeed fake leads me to fully understand that he did not get 81 million votes. They cheated on mail-in ballot stuffing and mass absentee voting. True investigations never happened and the quick demonization by the globalist-controlled media (yes, including horrible Fox News) only proves this point.

    Now that the puppet master strings controlling Biden are in place, you know it to be the deep state, those unelected morons that nobody ever wants to hold accountable for some reason, those traitors working with the globalists can enact their new powers using COVID and yes that infamous idea of green initiatives to save the planet sprinkled with some more racism against white people and add the new method, abortion nonsense. All of which to distract and start street battles like the blm summer of love in 2020, to cheat and win elections again, only this time the midterms.

    We, that is the deep state-controlled U.S. government (we are nowhere near a Democracy, that is laughable to even think we resemble something like a Democracy) overthrew the Democratically elected leader of Ukraine in 2013-2014 to install a more loyal puppet to the West. And the last 8 years we trained and armed the Ukrainian garbage in fighting Russian backed forces in the Donbas. Biden gets selected, it was a matter of time before Ukraine became the topic of choice.

    The reason is simple, blame Russia for dirty oil and coal and con Europe and low intelligent Americans to get off that dirty oil and coal using Putin and Russia as the new great satan to further the green agenda. Not hard to figure out. EV vehicles are being pushed in the West as well as more fans and solar panels.

    Ever wonder why those gas prices keep climbing and will never go back down? Blame Putin like Biden’s own administration is. If that does not work, blame those evil profiteering dirty oil companies, and if it still does not work, blame the free market system. Not making this up, the Energy Secretary under Biden did such that in a heated exchange with Senator Hawley of Missouri yesterday. Watch that exchange to understand what Biden (his controllers) are actually doing and blaming. That being said, the era of government-controlled oil pricing and supply is coming, a major step in the globalist agenda. Remember the 1970’s? It’s coming back.

    With sustained higher fuel prices, AAA says will be above $6 a gallon by August and remain there, we can see this globalist green agenda taking flight. Just like COVID aftermath, they will use dirty oil (Putin) to blame and how we must divest in oil and invest in green. Slavery is coming, most liberals live in dense urban areas, no wonder they love those EV vehicles. But most conservatives live in rural areas reliant on cheap oil for their lives. Guess who is being targeted now?

    Now that we moved into the rural areas from the liberal city we called home the last 12 years, we drive more to work. 35 minutes for myself and 45 minutes for my wife. Used to cost $40 to fill my truck, now it is above $65 and once above $70. Add all other increases and you can see we are being targeted for economic destruction or slavery. Your choice?

    Ukraine is dangerous. Proxy war indeed but no matter the chit chat about globalism and agenda’s, Russian tanks really do not care about those matters. Russian tanks are advancing 3 to 5 villages a week in Eastern Ukraine. Odessa will be the first major battle after Mariupol has been liberated and Ukies surrendered in mass. Odessa will be the key if the world will go to war. The UK stated that Odessa will not fall into Russian hands. They will do anything to prevent this. We shall see because Russian tanks do not care for globalist talk. The West talks and talks, and Russian tanks do not care, they just keep moving deeper into Ukraine.

    I do not blame Russia one bit for what they are doing in Ukraine. We started this mess going all the way back to continued NATO expansion and the illegal war upon Serbia by NATO in 1999. Russia is merely responding to the bullshyt by the West. And I watch lots of videos of the fighting in Ukraine and most Russian soldiers carry religious icon’s in their vehicles and tanks, something you will not see in American vehicles. Think about that and which side are we on?

    • Chevrus May 20, 2022 at 12:07 pm

      All excellent points. It’s worth noting too that the US and Friends have been meddling in Ukraine since the end of WW2. Much like the PaperClip, the Nazis who helped start The Company also helped keep their creed alive in Western Ukraine. In 2004 the Orange Revolution was sponsored by the usual suspects. When the elected government did what any sane person would do and began making deals with Russia, the US state dept. did another coup in 2014. All the while the most horrid operations have been running: black extradition sites, sex slavery and human trafficking, gun and drug running, massive money laundering with major players for the American political Royalty, to say nothing of the bioweapons labs and organ smuggling. Ukraine has been used like a slave for decades, with very few people benefitting from it and a lot of them suffering.

      USA & Friends have been arming, funding and training far right extremists since before Maidan in 2014, by their own admission. After that they turned the Azov, Aidar and Right Sektor punishment battalions on the resident of Donbass in the east for 8 years. More recently Ukrainian armed forces increased their numbers on the of contact and quadrupled the shelling of town and cities. The trigger was to get puppet Z-man to declare that Ukraine would seek nuclear weapons. Those of you who follow military operations know the rest. Additionally the MSM attempt at propaganda has been overwhelming in terms of its effect on the uninformed, but pathetic in the face of reality. Every single psy-op and false flag is debunked in a matter of day, and compelling evidence that the UAF is getting clobbered is mounting.

      I’m not going to wade into the ‘The globalists have all the players in their pocket’ dialogue, as that already has enough attention. I’m not here to debate that. It is worth noting as per the article, that this war is but the tip of the iceberg and seem certain to bring collapse of the current post war system in hurry. Watching the EU technocrats shoot themselves in the feet at the expense of their citizenry is pathetic. It’s a matter of time before the pitchforks come out. I fully expect a cold and hungry knot of angry people to go ‘Full Sri Lanka’ on their overlords. Nothing says ‘disapproval’ like torching someone’s estate….

    • Joan May 20, 2022 at 10:22 pm

      Disagree with you on the illegal war against Serbia. Serbia used genocide and forced millions of people out of their country in order to increase its territory. No amount of spray paint could cover all the street signs that were originally in Albanian. I know this because I was there. The only tragedy was Milosevic dying of natural causes and didn’t pay in this life for the horrendous crimes he committed. Bill Clinton got this one right… You can argue that wars are caused by a small group of people to advance their agenda, however the suffering of the people on the ground is real. You can choose to not participate or you can help bring the fight to the source. Because one day when they come for you, there may not be anyone left to fight.

      • pete papageorge May 21, 2022 at 3:13 am

        Seriously, Sebia was not an illegal war?

        I recall no such vote in the UN Security Council that authorized such a war. NATO violated their own treaty. They could not enact Article V because Serbia never threatened a single NATO state and by their own treaty, the entire NATO Treaty is placed under the UN Charter when Article V cannot be enforced. Thus, under Article 51 of the UN Charter, only the UNSC can authorize military action. NATO did none of this. It was an ILLEGAL war.

        Slobodan Milosevic was acquitted of any “genocide” charges in 2016, years after his death by I am sure poisoning by Western captives in the Hague. See what you fail to understand is the system (the ICTY) was controlled by the very NATO states that illegally bombed Serbia. In the legal world, that is called a conflict of interest. Thus, the ICTY was compromised from the beginning. Furthermore, the OSCE, as recent evidence in Ukraine, is and has been working closely with NATO states. It is called embedding spies and special forces within their ranks. Most NGO’s are infiltrated with such spies.

        And, I would be careful supporting the KLA because they are in fact a terror organization with connections to Osama Ben laden, you know the group the CIA propped up for so many years. Clinton got it wrong!

        The West tore Yugoslavia apart, called divide and conquer in the name of greed and power. In fact, it was the West that stole Kosovo away from Serbia in 2008, read the facts. Funny how the West claimed Crimea was stolen by Russia but if you look at the way Kosovo was wrestled from Sebia, hmmm, see the resemblance.

        Serbia 1999 was dubbed the “avoidable war” because at Rambouilett what the Serb delegation was seeking was in fact signed with UN resolution 1244. That is some of the main highlights, Kosovo was to remain part of Serbia, the KLA was to be disbanded and any UN peacekeeping force would involve Russian troops. When the latter was not met, a small Russian ground unit from Bosnia snuck in and seized the Pristina Airport ahead of advancing British ground forces. It became a standoff until NATO caved in and allowed Russia peacekeepers into the region. It was a totally avoidable war but NATO wanted war, just read Appendix B of the Rambouilett text and explain to me why would Serbia want to sign such a horrible document?

        Appendix B was the basis for a ground incursion and occupation of all Serbia lands. Now why would maddy Albright put such language in this text? You should know why.

        And seriously, you sound like a liberal or neocon with your “You can choose to not participate or you can help bring the fight to the source. Because one day when they come for you, there may not be anyone left to fight.”

        I believe in the doctrine of General Smedley Butler, that is there are two things worth fighting for, our homes and the Bill of Rights, everything else is a racket. With that being said, all of these illegal wars since WWII are indeed a racket for the bankers and MIC’s of the world to profit off of. They want to fight, bring it here, we are well armed and willing to defend our homes and Liberty. I served in the U.S. Marines, and thank God I never had to go abroad and fight for the bankers and elitists in DC and Brussels.

        The training I received will be useful if they come here. And we are not talking any foreign military less nuclear weapons because no one will attack us here. That enemy could and will be our own government the way they are going of late.

      “the Ukrainian garbage”? This type of insult to a nation is not often seen here at alt-market. Are you garbage? What godly right do you have to call peopel garbage?
      You do not blame Russia one bit for what they are doing in Ukraine? Do you deny that Russian soldiers are targeting civilians? Oh yes, they are “garbage”…
      It seems you think Russia had some reason to attack Ukraine, which means you do not get Brandon’s repeated message at all. Russia is part of the NWO. They are playing their part. Zelenskiy works for the NWO. Whosoever is playing the part of “Putin” also works for the NWO. The idea that Russia “has to” react to NATO provocation is part of the script.
      The enemies are the parasites orchestrating all of this. Perhaps you can shift your need to call people “garbage” to them instead. Please alo take note that the inquisition probably also had icons in their torture chambers. You will know them by their fruits, and the fruits of the Russian soldiers in Ukraine are not looking good.

      • pete papageorge May 21, 2022 at 7:13 pm

        Seriously, if I have to explain who the Azov radical elements within the Ukrainian National Guard are, you should not be commenting about this war. Plenty of documented evidence linking with far-right Nazi elements. I like how you ignore the human shields withing the Azovstal factory complex. Why were civilians embedded with military units?

        That is your garbage. WWII there was a difference from regular German soldiers and SS units. My grandfather fought against these elements and German soldiers were stationed on our family farm. They were normal soldiers doing their duty unlike evil SS units that deserve no respect whatsoever.

        Russians targeting civilians? I am sure you have detailed information from what sources? Hint, better not be Ukraine or any Western media outlets. The same “targeting civilians” like we did in Iraq, Syria, Libya or Serbia that we get to write off as “collateral damage” and get away with it. Give me a break.

        This is war buddy, and things happen in war like military units hiding in civilian areas because they are too afraid to confront more powerful opposing military units and the like. This is happening, as it always does.

        Russia borders Ukraine, America does not. This is not our fight and we do not belong there. Four NATO states border Ukraine, Russia is not going anywhere. Too many Russian speaking nationals in Ukraine is why Russia is not leveling the region like the U.S. did in many places it bombs to hell. The Western media is distorting the reality in Ukraine, please wake up.

        Globalists, WEF, Davos, and the like, we are guilty of that because our government is part of that problem. In fact the number 1 part of that problem. Who the heck would send over $54 billion to a nation that is one of the most corrupt in the world. We did. No matter our own citizens suffering, who cares.

        You need to read a bit more of these units that mass surrendered recently. They are not your typical military units. This is a major defeat for Ukraine. All of the weapons and billions of our tax dollars have done nothing to move those Russian tanks in the Donbas region. That is the point I am making.

        • dipdooo May 22, 2022 at 8:46 pm

          @Pete The Russians ARE targeting civilians, and that’s clear for anyone to see with the missile attacks. They are hitting apartment buildings and leveling neighborhoods. And not a few. These aren’t accidental casualties.

          You need to be more careful with your words. If you mean Azov are garbage, fine say so. But they make up .001% of Ukrainians. Don’t lump them all together.

          • pete papageorge May 23, 2022 at 2:29 am

            And you have evidence they are targeting specifically, going out of there way civilians? If Ukrainians are using these same civilian buildings to target Russian troops, may I ask, would that not be called using human shields much like ISIS or Iraqis did? Does not Russia have the rights to collateral damage and excuses?

            Sorry to get in the way of your cancel Russia everything program to fly your Ukrainian flags outside. We are guilty of starting this mess in Ukraine, but no, the U.S. is immune to anything bad. We never get war crimes, it is for those other guys. Give me a break. Every alleged “massacre” has been debunked thus far, why is that?

            And do not lecture me about my words. It is not my fault you guys lack any knowledge about what is going over there until the MSM media started talking about it. Ukraine has been going on since the orange revolution, why all of a sudden the attention?

            I think you are mistaken. If the RF forces were to pursue the policies you are suggesting, they would have steamrolled over the entire nation by now. You are simply parroting what you have heard in the MSM. Take a closer look: Maternity ward event was debunked, Bucha was debunked, the Theatre “bombing” was done by Ukrainian forces and the list goes on.

  • StopTheDENIAL May 20, 2022 at 11:27 am

    “Sadly, because of Hollywood movies a large number of people have misguided notions of what World War III might actually look like. Entertainment media always depict WWIII as happening in a flash, an instant in which missiles are launched and a broken civilization of survivors is left to pick up the pieces. What they never show is a long grinding war of financial attrition, supply chain disruptions, cyber attacks, and drawn out regional battles in which Americans are shipped overseas to die for no purpose other than to pretend that these territorial disputes are somehow ‘our responsibility.’ ”

    Besides the Hollywood effect, to me seems as if most folks have their conception of war as the antiquated 2nd or perhaps 3rd generation versions:

    • Second-generation warfare is the Early modern tactics used after the invention of the rifled musket and breech-loading weapons and continuing through the development of the machine gun and indirect fire. The term second generation warfare was created by the U.S. military in 1989.


    • American Civil War

    • Boer War

    • World War I

    • Spanish Civil War
• Iran–Iraq War

    • Third-generation warfare focuses on using Late modern technology-derived tactics of leveraging speed, stealth and surprise to bypass the enemy’s lines and collapse their forces from the rear. Essentially, this was the end of linear warfare on a tactical level, with units seeking not simply to meet each other face to face but to outmaneuver each other to gain the greatest advantage.

    • World War II

    • Korean War

    • Vietnam War

    • Persian Gulf War

    • Invasion of Afghanistan

    • Iraq War

    • Fourth-generation warfare as presented by Lind et al. is characterized by a “post-modern” return to decentralized forms of warfare, blurring of the lines between war and politics, combatants and civilians due to nation states’ loss of their near-monopoly on combat forces, returning to modes of conflict common in pre-modern times.

    • Fifth-generation warfare is conducted primarily through non-kinetic military action, such as social engineering, misinformation, cyberattacks, along with emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and fully autonomous systems. Fifth generation warfare has been described by Daniel Abbot as a war of “information and perception”.

    While folks are being fed a lot of manufactured news™ of this war in Ukraine, many are NOT seeing the 4th & 5th generation warfare being fought against themselves worldwide.

    Mandated Covid-vaccines™ = population debilitation / supply chain implosion (due to TPTSB-elites® knowledge that even a 10% non-compliance rate in key industries like air-lines, air-cargo, trucking, and shipping would slowly take down the supply chain).

    US / EU fiat currency inflation [not the bogus BLS CPI of around 10%] but the REAL WORLD OBSERVED inflation of between 30 to 100% inflation over the last 2 years which is INTENTIONAL ECONOMIC WAR against the masses.

    Now the question is WHY TPTSB-elites® have unleashed this hot WORLD WAR Z against everyone everywhere just recently?

    • Daniel V May 20, 2022 at 12:55 pm

      Beacuse they want you dead or enslaved if you’re alive. Let’s make sure it doesn’t end that way.

      • Daniel V May 20, 2022 at 3:26 pm

      Why now? Because they think they have all the tech to get the job done and also because they’re running out of time before the sheeple catch on to their games.

      • Daniel V May 20, 2022 at 6:04 pm

        Keep in mind Gauntlet, the globalists and the rest of the leftists/luciferians are getting impatient. They hate the fact that there are still people waking up, so they want to fast forward all scenarios by any means necessary in order to achieve their agendas. Obviously, it’s a long dangerous road ahead but we have to be prepared for the inevitable war whether we want it or not. As for me, I’m awake but my parents and other family members are all but asleep in the impending crisis. It will be very difficult for me to prepare, as anyone in my family can turn against me at any moment. Just yesterday, I keep thinkibg about the shortages, inflation crisis, and etc. My parents however, don’t see this. They want me to go to college literally in the start of a very bad scenario. My grandfather even said to me that if the government is forcing others to comply, he said that I must comply. My family could care less on how I value my freedom from medical tyranny. You however, and many others are still properly prepared, so take that for granted. If there is one more thing I want to say honestly, I would appreciate advice on how could I prepare when my family don’t believe what’s going to happen and want to go against me.

        • Davy Crockett May 21, 2022 at 3:02 pm

          This is an emotionally difficult option for a young man, but just like Brandon has advised families to get out of blue states to conservative states with like-minded people, you can consider to not go to college (possibly incurring debt at a time to avoid debt), but rather to go find work in a smaller town in a red state and build up from there. At least you will be in a safer area. You will be appreciated and you will gain independence.
          Good luck. May God guide you.

          • Daniel V May 21, 2022 at 6:03 pm

            Hello Davy Crockett. While I think you provided excellent solutions, it’s not going to be easy. My family has been greatly indoctrinated by the propaganda machine and will go against me at even given moment. As I said earlier, they rarely could care what I think about whats going to happen. At this point, the only way I’m even able to start is to find organized milita groups and start gardening within NJ, as trusting my family has become a great liability. Given how NJ is one of the most tolitarian states in the country, I need to find other like minded groups now. Anyway, thank you for your advice, I will take that into account as a future goal.

    “Does the presence of US and European troops in Ukraine mean a global nuclear war is imminent? It’s unlikely.”

    I have a slightly different take. Suppose you live in a neighborhood where all your neighbors have shotguns stuck out of their windows pointed right at your house. Wouldn’t you feel uneasy? Then, suppose they invited all their friends and relatives over with their shotguns. Hopefully, you get my point.

    The Russians have underground bunker facilities for 40 million of their citizens. America has ZERO. Why do you suppose Russia would have built those facilities if they weren’t going to be needed? Russia knows sooner or later it will have to use their nuclear weapons. They believe they can win a nuclear war. It doesn’t matter what you believe – they believe it.

    Brig. Gen. Robert Spalding has written “War Without Rules” which goes into detail the Chinese doctrine of modern warfare. It is Unrestricted Warfare which is military, non-military, lethal and non-lethal means by ANY means necessary to obtain victory (compel the enemy to accept one’s interests). It is a war which is fought without morals, adherence to international laws, national laws, behavioral norms, or ethical principles. To the Chinese, there are infinite possibilities to conduct warfare. It is not just a “doctrine” on warfare, but more importantly an attitude, a collective way of thinking because the Chinese military is is an arm of the CCP Central Committee much like the Nazi SS was to the Nazi Party.

    According to the Chinese, at least as of 1999, they had no interest in invading the US mainland. They had many “weapons” in which to bleed America dry without bloodshed. You are seeing many of those “weapons” in deployment today, no need to go into it here.

    I think we are in a world war already. Yes, it will be unlike we have ever seen. It is a necessary thing for the WEF and the Globalists to take control. Right now Russia and China are not cooperating. The US is the chief instigator/aggressor in this European dispute in which the US had no business being involved. If the head of the snake is cut off, Europe slinks away with its tail between its legs…

    I read a post on FaceBook from Candace Owens: “If you were laid off from the US military because of resisting the Covid jab, go into private security”. So I added “if you do, just avoid Ukraine like the plague.” Bam! “Your post goes against FaceBook Community Standards and people won’t see it.” So there you go, if you ever doubted that FaceBook is a US war industry product (and the industry is really looking to ramp this Ukraine war up into WW3) there’s your proof. Once can sh*t on FB all over the Covid jabs now, the Dems 2020 election theft, Build Back Better, the WEF, Bill’s monkeypox scam… nary a “tsk tsk”. But just touch Ukraine, and kaploie! censored.

Anyone that thinks the East is not under control as Western governments are controlled has not done their research. The concept of “winning” becomes a delusion when one understand the true reasons behind the conflict.

    The US busted a guy who sold the military boots labled “Made in the USA” that were instead made in China, so some of those boots were likely to actually be Chinese.

    As for boots in the ground, a US one-star Delta operator was photographed being escorted by Russians out of Mariupol. There are plenty of rumours of NATO officers already in Russian hands. It will be interesting to see if any of these show up in show trials, or if they are instead traded for other assets, or if this is all just BS.

  • bhk4usa May 28, 2022 at 10:14 am

    I believe that the ‘conflict’ in Ukraine is a staged and choreographed event intended to further collapse much of the world and strengthen the globalist ambitions of the WEF and its narcissistic Machiavellian psychopathic adherents.

    The only thing necessary for most people to accept this is the realization that there truly are unredeemably evil people in this world that will destroy anything, crush every nations, and kill not just thousands but millions in order to achieve their goals. Any ‘cost’ is reasonable to these deranged ideologues that are convinced of their own superiority and destiny to impose their greater insight on the rest of mankind. At least those they allow to remain alive.

    Zelensky/Ukraine are obviously and openly puppet creations of the USA government and its ‘intelligence’ apparatus. Putin/Russia were adherents of the Global Communist State ideology and Putin has implemented many of the WEF policies within Russia. Putin is just a globalist wolf hiding in nationalist sheep’s clothing.

    Oh, once there globalist goals are further advanced there very well may be some infighting between the leading psychopathic factions about which will be in ultimate control. But at the moment they are working together to advance common interests and they DO NOT CARE how many economies, nations, and people are destroyed in the process.

    The globalists wrote the empire change rulebook decades ago.
    Remember what happened to the USSR after their little military adventure in afghanistan? The globalists destroyed the USSR to bring in their new creation into the world: china. They are now destroying the US, from within (just like the USSR was destroyed, no need for a global war), to leave china as the only global superpower, so they can spread their totalitarian technocratic communist empire, around the world.
