News from the NATOstan-Imposed Meat Grinder
No one ever lost money capitalizing on the unlimited nonsense spewed out by the collective deer caught in the headlights also known as Western mainstream media – complete with showering Person of the Year awards on a megalomaniac, cocaine-fueled lousy actor impersonating a warlord.
The non-stop trashy parade of Western military analysts is now “assessing” that the first targets of an incoming, joint Russia-Belarus attack on the 404 black hole formerly known as Ukraine will be Lviv, Lutsk, Rivne, Zhytomyr, and why not throw Kiev in the mix straight out of a second axis.
Some facts though never change. If push ever came to shove Russia can conveniently defeat the whole of NATO as there is hardly anything “there”.
With its array of hypersonic missiles, Russia can knock out all NATO bridges, ports, airports as well as power stations, oil and natural gas storage, Rotterdam oil and natural gas installations, in a matter of a few hours. Europe would be shut off from natural resources. A dazed and confused Empire would be unable to move troops, any troops, to Europe.
This rinse and repeat tactic has led to (at least) 400,000 Ukrainian casualties. Call it the epitome of Attritional Warfare. Historians will relish that the whole scenario resembles the Battle of Agincourt, with French Knights playing the role of present day Ukrainians, and Polish/NATO mercenaries.
By the time this meat grinder is over an entire generation of Ukrainians and Poles will have gone to meet their maker.
NATO, as Stultifying Stoltenberg keeps reminding the world, does not do negotiations.
Which may be a blessing, as NATO may end up breaking up in myriad pieces, totally humiliated on the ground despite all its elaborate warmongering plans.
All this while Russia prepares “for yet another ‘defeat’, like retaking all of Donbass and then… Who knows what then. A quick win for Russia would be a loss because NATO would still exist. No, Russia has to pace this so as it sucks in NATO into the grinder.”
Somewhere in her private pantheon, Pallas Athena, Goddess of Geopolitics, is immensely enjoying the show. Oh, wait; she’s actually reincarnated, and her name is Maria Zakharova.
