08 February 2024

Heads explode over Tucker interviewing Putin! Tucker Carlson recently traveled to Russia to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin, and heads in the establishment commentariat predictably exploded. The European Union is threatening to sanction Carlson as a result, while the Ukrainian government has placed Carlson’s name on the country’s ‘kill list’.

12 February 2024

Tucker Carlson’s first discussion since Putin interview.

The following two articles have ‘nothing’ to do with the Ukraine – but they do in that the Ukraine is only part of the story of the US seeking to maintain world ‘dominance’. One of the interesting aspects of these two articles, written by so-called ‘academics’ is the assumption that the ‘west’ has the right to try and restrict the economy of another sovereign state. European imperialism has been doing that for centuries and have the mindset they can do so for the next 500. However, now they are trying that on with states who are prepared, and have the ability, to fight back.

No one uninvolved – The Grayzone live. Max Blumenthal and Aaron Mate discuss the death of Navalny; the US-Israeli assault on multilateral institutions seeking to prevent famine in Gaza; renewal of US starvation sanctions on Syria and the looming catastrophe in Rafah.

19 February 2024

Amnesty strips Alexei Navalny of ‘prisoner of conscience’ status (24 February 2021).

11 April 2024

How thousands of Ukrainian men are trying to dodge the conflict. [Note that the interviewer doesn’t point it out but the 3rd Assault Brigade, for which ‘the smiling volunteer’ is signing up, is the renamed Azov Brigade, that is he is joining a Nazi formation and probably holds those ideological views. What the mainstream media oft times omits is just as (or even more) important than what it includes.]

11 April 2024

US artillery capabilities fall victim to ‘profit over purpose’, no solution in sight.

11 April 2024

Russia delivers major blow to Ukraine by destroying Kiev’s biggest power plant.

Another pair of British so-called ‘academics’ make an ‘analysis’ of the current situation of the Special military operation in Ukraine without (seemingly) recognising that the ‘West’ doesn’t have the arms and ammunition to give to the Ukraine – even if the money was made available. If they do recognise this issue and chose to ignore it then it just demonstrates the dire straights into which British academia has fallen. ‘Academics’ that write for The Conversation are merely paid propagandists of the State.

11 April 2024

Russia’s devastating use of Soviet-era ‘glide bombs’ shows how urgently Kyiv needs air defence systems.

11 April 2024

Battlefield tipping in Russia’s favour as Kyiv begs allies for more arms.

Don’t think I posted the article below in May 2023. reproducing it here (just under a year later) so that readers will be able to compare the analysis of a (this time Australian) ‘academic’ just before the Ukraine’s much vaunted ‘counter-offensive’ of last year and the situation, on the ground, now.

Ukraine could face defeat in 2024. Here’s how that might look. [For more than two years Barrons hasn’t had a clue about what has been happening in the Ukraine. Anyone remember him confidently predicting the ‘million man army’ of the Ukraine ready to sweep away the Russian invaders? Now he accepts the reality but still has to throw in unsubstantiated claims made all the time by the pro-west propagandists.]

12 April 2024

DragonFire: UK laser could be used against Russian drones on Ukraine front line. [But this ‘game changing’ system will not be operable until 2027 – at the earliest. By then the Ukraine, due to NATO intransigence, won’t exist as a functioning country.]

17 April 2024

Russia’s meat grinder soldiers – 50,000 confirmed dead. [But pro-Ukrainian commentators, whose words have often been reported by the BBC, have for long been arguing that the figures are ten times what the BBC now ‘confirms’. So why didn’t the BBC ‘journalists’ make a comment upon that fact in the past? And the BBC, so concerned with ‘factual evidence’, even repeats Zelensky’s fantastical figure of 31,000 Ukrainian dead to ‘demonstrate’ that Russia is losing in the death stakes.]

17 April 2024

Ukraine is losing the war and the west faces a stark choice: help now or face a resurgent and aggressive Russia. [Yet the same ‘academic’ was saying that Russia would fail if it tried to takeover Transistria, Moldova.]
