Yesterday morning I posted a proof of why Russian liberalism was producing a wider warfare that would finish in Armageddon. www.paulcraigroberts.org/2022/05/01/putins-liberalism-means-a-wider-war-is-in-the-cards/
I discover no reduction in The Saker acknowledging the identical unfolding of occasions. thesaker.is/sitrep-operation-z-17/
The Saker and Andrei Martyanov are two competent analysts of Russian navy functionality. Till not too long ago they’ve acknowledged no drawback with Putin’s restricted navy operation in Ukraine. However The Saker now realizes that the gradual Russian operation has made alternatives for Western mischief that may widen the battle. Little doubt Martyanov additionally sees the antagonistic penalties of delay, however he’s but to attribute any significance to them.
The Saker studies Western plans to convey into western Ukraine the place Russia has no boots on the bottom Polish and Romanian troopers with NATO air cowl for “navy workout routines.” The Saker additionally studies that there appears to be a navy operation in preparation towards Russian Transnistria.
Quoting different analysts, The Saker studies that on the Polish, Belarus, and Moldova borders with Ukraine a complete contingent of fifty,000 to 100,000 troops might be inferred. “NATO’s final technique on this concern is presently unclear, however a number of choices may very well be thought of. Firstly, this may be accomplished for a banal intimidation of Russia and an try to put strain on the course of the particular operation in Ukraine, and secondly, within the West they completely perceive that Ukraine as a rustic not exists and see its future on the precept of occupation sectors. And the third possibility is essentially the most horrible, however the least probably: NATO determined to go all the way in which and, if lend-lease and hybrid warfare don’t cease the Russians, then common items of Western international locations will step in. This, in fact, is a 100% risk of using nuclear weapons. It seems to be utopian, however in 2022 all the pieces is feasible.”
The Saker quotes the Russian Colonel Cassad:
“The principle matter that worries many at present is the adoption by the US Congress of the lend-lease program for Ukraine. Supply of huge batches of contemporary weapons is anticipated quickly. The warfare will attain a brand new degree, as a result of now we may even must struggle with the American navy trade. Deliveries of American heavy weapons are anticipated, together with F-16 plane. In the present day we wrote that Ukraine is already getting ready pilots for these machines. Right here it is advisable perceive as soon as and for all, we’re at warfare with NATO, the place Ukraine is simply low cost service personnel and cannon fodder.”
The Pentagon’s John Kirby backs up Colonel Cassad’s report together with his announcement: “In the present day I can announce that the US has begun coaching the Ukrainian armed forces to make use of key weapons at US navy bases in Germany.”
The lend-lease invoice was launched within the US Senate on January 19, 2022, a month previous to the Russian intervention in Ukraine. This helps the considerable proof that Washington did intend to trigger Russian intervention in Donbass by mobilizing a big Ukrainian military able to assault Donbass.
The Saker additionally quotes this report:
“Kiev secretly despatched Kharkiv cadets to the US to be taught to fly the F-16, which can quickly enter service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine below lend-lease. Kiev determined prematurely to retrain its pilots for the NATO fleet. Because it grew to become recognized to Readovka, the cadets of the Kharkiv Greater Army College had been despatched to one of many European NATO international locations and to the US in early February for emergency retraining within the administration of American F-16s. The cadets had been taken immediately from the 4th yr courses. All of them had been transported in full secrecy. Thus, it’s extra probably that NATO, along with Kiev, knew concerning the imminent deployment of a particular operation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and tried to work forward of the curve. The regulation handed the day earlier than by the US Congress authorizing the lend-lease of heavy weapons to Ukraine apparently entails the availability, amongst different issues, of American F-16 fighters. There’s additionally info that the lend-lease introduced by the US was launched solely to legalize the switch of F-16 fighters to Ukraine.”
None of this info matches within the narrative that Washington has created because the managed clarification of the Russian intervention fed by the presstitutes to the peoples within the West. The Western peoples of their “free societies” with their “free press” stay as unaware of occasions as Massive Brother’s folks in George Orwell’s e book, 1984.
My views on the dangerousness of the state of affairs are, in fact, ignored by the US international coverage group, most of whom are busy at work with warfare propaganda. Solely twice have my articles been posted on Johnson’s Russian Checklist. In international coverage, as in Covid and all else, dissenting views are not permitted.
It’s now clear that the Kremlin’s restricted navy operation was a severe mistake. There was no motive for the Russians to imagine that Washington wouldn’t use the bigger a part of Ukraine not below assault to drive the Russians right into a wider warfare on the West’s phrases, a wider warfare that would have been averted if the Kremlin had not been so anxious to attenuate using drive. Because the state of affairs spirals uncontrolled, we’d now be dwelling in our final days.
