Ukraine & NATO versus Russia - No End In Sight Because The West Will Not Allow It


The latest wodge of US aid for Kiev, a package worth $61 billion which was only  pushed through Congress after six months of partisan mud slinging, with the war loving Democrats calling for more aid, more weapons and more lives to be sacrificed to the goal of humiliating Vladimir Putin's Russia is small change compared to what Ukrainian President-with-the-piano-playing-penis Vladimir Zelensky is linking up for his next sting on western leaders.

Kiev is negotiating with the  authoritarian bureaucrats who run the administration of demented, geriatric US President Joe Biden for a long-term and binding committment from Washington to provide Ukraine with military, economic, and political support for the next decade, Zelensky said on Sunday in his daily video address. 

Such commitments are needed to ensure Ukraine has the “efficiency in assistance” it needs to stem recent battlefield advances by Russian forces and gain the upper hand, he said, obviously reciting words written for him in Washington where the proxy war in Russia's backyard that the Pentagon and NATO have worked so hard and so long to engineer.

Some years ago as Russia and Eastern Europe, freed from the shackles of Soviet Socialist oppression, were in the process of transforming into modern nations  I was working for an international consortium in Stockholm. We were creating an advanced integrated services digital network for data, voice and televisual communications based in the Swedish capital, which was planned to extend eventually into Poland, The Baltic States and Russia. 

It was not easy to overcome the various bureaucratic obstacles thrown up when Russian and European Union bureaucracies clashed but it was possible. People in our team, from the UK, France, Germany and Scandinavia seemed to get on well with people in the former Soviet states and Russia, there was goodwill and a desire for cooperation on both sides. 

It struck me that at that time we had massive opportunities to build strong and mutually beneficial trade and cultural links with the new Russia and its geographic neighbours and presumably stemming from that our governments could bury the mistrust and hostilities of the past. Such naive optimism was always doomed to crash and burn, as it did due to interference from 'unknown sources' soon after an American telecoms giant joined the consortium and immediately began to trample, roughshod, on local sensitivities. 

Since then I have learned that many other atttempts to build bridges and increase cooperation in different industries have met the same fate, ending up with relations between the west and Russia in the sorry state we have today.

A commonly held opinion among free thinkers is that the current contratemps which has brought to world far to close to wholesale war for comfort, turned Russia away from the west and towards China and driven the global south into the arms of the Sino - Russian trade bloc, BRICS is as much, if not more, the fault of the Western World than it is of Russia alone. 

Putin as we see him today was in some ways formed in response to the bad diplomacy and miserable statesmanship the western world displayed in its dealings with the new Russia, particularly in the recruitment by NATO of former Warsaw pact nations, in contempt of an informal agreement between US President Bill Clinton and Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev that no such move would be made. 

Russia tolerated that but made its displeasure known through diplomatic channels. The west responded by adding insult to injury.  In 2014 a coup d'etat engineered by the CIA and US State Department overthrew a corrupt but democratically elected, pro - Russian government in Ukraine and replaced it with an equally corrupt, neo - Nazi, pro - western government which immediately embarked on an ethnic cleansing campaign to remove Russian speakers from Ukrainian territory.

Russia was of course blamed for atrocities committed against ethnic Russians in Ukraine. It is as if the western alliance was afflicted by a compulsion to cast Russia as a demonic rogue state intent on conquering the whole of Europe, (though there is absolutely no evidence that such ideas were entertained in Moscow,) and so we had to transform Putin into a monstrous bogie man, thus we end up with mainstream media's portrayal of today's wannabe Hitler caricature.

It now seems that US policy towards Ukraine owes little to the need to halt the appalling slaughter and destruction and everything to do with ensuring the conflict continues and escalates in the hope that presenting the babbling, shuffling clown  Biden as a heroic war leaders will win the Presidential election and ensure the Democrat party controls The White House for another four years. 

Anyone with more active brain cells than they have tits or testicles as the case may be, can now see this war is gaining nothing for the ordinary people of the UK or Europe or the USA and our leaders could bring it to a halt very quickly if they wanted to, as they could have done in April 2022. Ukraine is out of weapons, money and most seriously from a humanitarian point of view, short of manpower. And yet the child sniffing clown Biden insensibly mouths prepared words and his handlers push forward policies that will guarantee the slaughter continues.

It is not too late even now go back to the painstaking task of building trade, cultural and security arrangements with Russia all of which would be the best result for the ordinary people but I suspect the political price of doing this is too high for the political establishments of the developed nations and the billionaire psychopaths who influence them to be acceptable.

After enduring the stupendous cost of the Ukraine war, and the loss of the Nordstream pipeline, the Kerch bridge and other assets, Russia will not want to engage in more military action in the near future if they can avoid doing so. We need to show them that the future lies in cooperation, collaboration and good trade rather than confrontation and conflict. Perhaps it is naive to believe this is possible when there are too many vested interests who would see no power and profit in such an approach, but with a spate of elections due this year in the USA, UK, European Union and several of its member states, We The People must use our votes to let the political oligarchs know that we do not want war, hate neither Russians nor Ukrainians and will not cooperate with any of their plans to remove likely obstacles to building a world government.

EU Technocrats Plan To Shut Down European Agricultural Industry
European farmers will gather in Brussels on Tuesday to demand guarantees from the EU Commission that changes to policy will be made to ensure the European agricultural sector remains viable. They will also demand a relaxation of the regulatory regime, and for Brussels to abandon free trade agreements with countries outside the EU, which are now being used to bring cheap into European markets

‘We’re Not At War With Russia,’ Germany's Chancellor Scholz tells Warmongering French Ouanqeur Macron
Though Macron's recent posturing as a reincarnated Napoleon by calling on his fellow European leaders to send troops to fight alongside the Ukrainian military may have been nothing more than an ill - advised attempt to deflect attention from online conspiracy theories that his wife Brigitte is, or was at some time in the past, a man, the ploy, if that is what it was, has backfired.

Moscow Claims U S Defense Secretary's ‘Freudian slip’ Exposes Washington's intention To Go To War With Russia
Testifying to the US Congress House Armed Services Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is alleged to have revealed evidence that Washington has plans for direct military involvement with Russia. [ ... ] Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made this allegation on Friday having seen a transcript of Austin's address to the Committee hearing on Thursday. Austin reportedly said that “if Ukraine falls, I genuinely believe NATO will be fighting Russia.

And The War In Ukraine Grinds On
Due to the absence in this blog of reporting on the war in Ukraine readers may have come to the conclusion that we Boggart Bloggers no longer considered it important. That is not quite true, though we are still aware of the importance of Ukraine to the future of the liberal democracies in western Europe, we are only three old guys (with occasional contributions from friends in the alt_news community,) and have simply been overwhelmed by events closer to home.

Total Defeat Of Ukraine By Russia Is Only A Matter Of Time
Financial Times columnist and founder member of the Vobblyvoddymyr Zelensky piano playing penis fan club, Gideon Rachman has a talent for stating the obvious which he displays in a recent article on the state of play in the Ukrainian conflict 'Ukraine and its backers need a credible path to victory - archived. As the Financial Times is behind a paywall with no monthly allocation of free articles, below is a sommary of the most importyant section:

Is The West About To Abandon Ukraine?
n a fresh interview with Germany's national television service ARD on Saturday (2 December,) NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg warned viewers to prepare for for more "bad news" from Ukraine. Asked for his opinion on whether the situation will worsen for Ukrainian as winter sets in, after the much hyped summer counteroffensive turned into a catastrophic failure he responded, "Wars develop in phases.

The War In Ukraine Is Entering A Significant Phase - SitRep
With all the other troubles in the world its easy to overlook the news from Ukraine which suggests that conflict is entering a a crucial phase as the western allies find it inceasingly difficult to keep up with Kiev's demands for cash, weapons and ammo. Big Serge has a rather long situation report on Substack and it will not make happy reading for the Zelensky fan club in the west:

Game Over For Zelensky - NATO andEU Officials Urge Ukraine To Seek Peace
As this blog predicted early last month, following the catastrophic failure of Ukraine's 'counter offensive' to push Russian troops out of their country, American and European leaders who have previously been solidly behind the doomed Ukrainian war with its powerful neighbour, are rapidly going cool on their pledges of unlimited support for puppet - president Zelensky and his far - right masters.

Ukraine's Military Commander Admits Counter - offensive Has Failed And The Battlefield Position Is Stalemate
Since Russian troops crossed the border into Ukraine, back in February 2022, those of us who questioed the Russia bad, Ukraine goood narrative have been targeted by torrents of abuse hurled by pseudo - patriots and armchair soldiers, and called a 'Kremlin stooges', Russian agents', 'Putin supporters', and enemies of freedom. When anybody suggested that Russia's aim was not to conquer the whole of Ukraine and from there wage war on the rest on continental Europe ...

Ukraine Too Corrupt To Join The EU Says Former EU Leader Juncker
Former EU Commission President and world class oenophile Jean-Claude Juncker, stated this week in unusually blunt terms that are perhaps a sign of the times, that Ukraine is not ready to join the EU due to its being "corrupt at all levels of society," the former European Commission president, said in unusually blunt language during an interview with Germany’s Augsburger Allgemeine newspaper this week.

There Is Only One Way Ukraine Can End The War
As Ukraine's much hyped counterattack has failed to achieved the and momentum that hoped for by American and NATO leaders including President Volodymyr Zelensky who admitted it was "slower than desired", and a range of soldiers interviewed by BBC and Sky News television reporters t on different parts of the long (probably too long given the depletion of Ukrainian military manpower,) frontline have blamed minefields laid by Russian troops for that delay. Well as is often said, in any wartruth is the first casualty.

Russia Ukraine Dirty Bomb Claim - Some Reality
As the situation in Ukraine gets more desperate with casualty numberrs mounting, half the national infrastructure in ruins and Russia upping its game in response to US / NATO military assistance privided to the neo nazi nutters in Kiev, a false flag event seems the only way to provide an excuse for direct US intervention. And the USA has a track record for fgalse flag events ...

Who Blew Up The Nordstream Pipeline
So whodunnit? Sabotage of undersea gas pipe will escalate tension and move the world closer to nuclear war, but who is behind it, Russia in a bid to put more presure on Europe, Ukraine in an attempt to drag NATO into direct action, or the USA using a CIA false flag event to advance its own agenda.

Has Putin Has Pushed Europe Into Economic Depression, Hyperrinflation and Currency Collapse?
Though it was entirely predictable and indeed had been expected for some time, the news over the weekend that the Nord Stream 1 pipeline which feeds gas from Russia to northern Europe via The Baltic route had been shut down completely by The Kremlin in retaliation for the continued financial and military support given by NATO and EU member states to Ukraine in the conflict with Russia. The European Commission, governing body of the EU, immediately put the community on something close to a war footing, ...

Do We Have A Winter Of Civil Disobedience Ahead?
As many people in Britain slap on the apres sun gloop in the wake of what passes for a heatwave in these cool cloudy climes, our inept politicians caught with their pants down by unusual weather as usual have heard that that winter is coming and are making plans for a coldwave. We are in the grip of an energy crisis at the height of summer. Last week, it was reported that the UK government is laying down plans for a “reasonable worst-case scenario” including blackouts for industry and even households. And this is as energy prices spiral out of control to new records every day.

Is Russia Selling Its Oil To The World Through An Obscure Egyptian Port?
As this blog predicted when NATO and EU member states shot themselves in the foot by reacting to Russia's invasion of Ukraine with sanctions that prevented Russia from selling oil, gas and vital raw materials to the countries that needed them most, the NATO and EU member states, the Russians have had no problems finding alternative customers for their gas and oil and no problem getting oil into the world's commodity markets through the back door.

Are US Supplied Long Range Missiles Really Winning The War For Ukraine?
Since very soon after the start of the war between Russia and Ukraine western powers, USA, UK, EU and NATO have been doing everything possible to prolong and escalate the war. The latest move is to provide the Ukrainian military with long range HIMARS missile. Mainstream media are claiming this has tilted the balance in Ukraine's favour. But for what? To prolong the slaughter? ...

Jingoistic Western Triumphalism Will Not End The War In Ukraine Or Cripple Putin, But It Is Crippling Western Nations

As the war in Ukraine grinds on and Russia steps up its economic war against the west and in particular The European Union, claims made recently by the idiotically 'woke' leaders of Europe's main economic and military powers that the West has a once-in-a–generation chance to severely weaken Russia’s capabilities, both militarily and geopolitically, look increasingly hollow. Putin's critics have cited 'Western unity' as one of the main reasons why Russia will be economically destroyed and politically humiliated when the Ukraine's military finally claim victory.

We The Good Guys Versus They The Bad Guys Reporting Does Not Make Sense For The Ukraine Crisis
Mainstream media reporting of the conflict in Ukraine has disappointed. Perhaps I was naive to suppose that lessons might have been learned from the hits their print sales and online traffic rates took as a result of their handling the COVID pandemic But instead of focusing on the most obviously newsworthy aspect of the build up to and escalation of the war, Russia’s view of NATO expansion into Ukraine and even further to Georgia and Kazakhstan, news reports have simply demonised Russia and portrayed Ukraine as the good guys.

Boris and Biden Can't Blame Ukraine War For Energy Crisis
With typical arrogance and condescension towards the people who elected them Boris Johnson, Joe Biden and their respectiive presstitutes are trying to spin the energy crisis Europe and North America are currently facing as somehow being linked to the conflict in Ukraine and therfore blame is being attactched to Russia and Vladimir Putin. Do they really think we are stupid enough to believe such unmitigated bollocks? ...

Even If The War In Ukraine Ends, Sanctions Will Stay - So How Bad Will The Food Crisis Get?
Western leaders, desperate to show their own countries they were taking a firm stance on Russia's invasion of Ukraine, were quick to impose economic sanctions ... so quick in fact that they acted before they had though things through.

Europe's Depleted Gas Storage Might Not Get Refilled Ahead Of Next Winter
While mainstream news reporting of the conflict in Ukraine continues to pump out a torrent of anri - Russia, pro - war propaganda the catastropic effects of this war that could so easily have been avoided are not mentioned.

Putin, Macron To Hold Urgent Talks To Halt Military Escalation In Ukraine
Even though the leaders of Ukraine itself are talking down the threat of war with Russia over the breakaway region of Donbas, America and Britain are still beating the war drums and demonising Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
