Russia

My last essay on Russia!!

1] As I said before I would be surprised if Russia has not meddled to some extent in American Elections
2] As to changing the actual results I have always regarded that as a stretch, you better really get your proof together.
3] If you go for impeachment over this issue make sure everything you say is correct, get it wrong and you will lose badly in the next elections.

According to top brass at NATO, latest Russian Sukhoi Su-35R is a complete failure

After viewing its performance at the MAKS 2017 Moscow Air Show the generals took note that the latest Russian fighter jet appears to be incapable of straight forward flight unlike the Lockheed Martin F-35. One general stated, "At 1/3rd the cost of the F-35, I suppose you get what you pay for. The Russians are obviously now so far behind they will never catch up to our advanced technological expertise."

Sy Hersh on Joint Chiefs intelligence sharing with Russia to aid Assad

As we struggle with the dissonance of our war policy in Syria, I think this 2016 article by Seymour Hersh is clarifying. He states that in 2013 the Joint Chiefs shared intelligence with Germany and Russia with the direct purpose of assisting Assad's government to destroy extremist opposition and ISIS. Hersh clarifies the CIA arming of jihadists, the DIA efforts to speak truth to power, the role of Russia, and he quotes Michael Flynn and Tulsi Gabbard.

Initial skirmish of World War 3: the Battle of the Black Sea. Hint, we lost.

So you think about what does this mean? First, it means that the missile lobbing contests of North Korea and the US are really a side-show. The US cannot and will not invade or bomb North Korea for many reasons. One of the most potent reasons is the massive loss of life, even if restricted to conventional weapons. Seoul's megacity of 12,000,000 is within easy striking range of standard artillery as well as short range missiles. There is no effective defense of Seoul possible.

A Russian folk tale

In order to understand Vladimir Putin it is necessary to understand Russia. Russia is a unique culture, history and state of the mind. Vladimir Putin is Russia, in heart, soul and mind. Western strategy is to punish him and Russia and send a message that an ascendant, independent Russia is unacceptable to the West, and that he personally will be punished with Western propaganda, until he gives in. The Western narrative is purposeful and fraudulent.

Putin, the man that singlehandedly destroyed America's democracy

For six months now, the top news story in the country has been how one man, Putin, managed to infiltrate the internets, take almost complete control of the US electoral system and put a puppet of a foreign nation into the country's highest position of power. What kind of superpowers does this man have to create such turmoil in all three branches of the federal government, the Executive, the Legislative and even the Judicial without so much as firing a single bullet or dropping one bomb?

Any thoughts on Comey's testimony about Russia?

I didn't listen to or watch the hearing today, but I read as much as I could afterward, and these parts were interesting.

What do you think?

… BURR: Do you have any doubt that Russia attempted to interfere in the 2016 elections?

COMEY: None.

Daniel Lazare on Russiagate, Atlantic Council, Saudi interests

In the great recent essay by Alligator Ed, James Comey fired! Watch out Hillary!, there was a discussion that included the perspective of a person who appears to believe Russia hacked the DNC. I think the following article by Daniel Lazare at Consortiumnews.com lays out some of the reasons I don't believe Russia hacked the DNC and includes reasons why this hollow Russiagate scenario is loaded with the potential to destroy life on earth.

aah, juicy crime thriller, isn't it?

Macron team blasts 'massive hacking attack' on eve of vote

The campaign team of French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron on Friday confirmed it had suffered a "massive and coordinated hacking attack" after internal documents were released online, slamming an attempt at "democratic destabilisation".

Time for a really good root cellar?

Or maybe a well-supplied tornado shelter, given the weather that climate change has given us lately? Or ...?

The Russian leaders, who, unlike the Western liars, speak the truth, have said clearly that Russia will never again fight a war on her own territory. The Russians couldn’t put it more clearly. Provoke a war, and we will destroy you on your own territory.

We're dead, many of us. And probably very soon.
