🪖🦅 It’s idle to dwell on the cringe-worthy visit of the Kiev clown to Crash Test Dummy at the White House, coupled with a “Churchillian” speech at the War Party dominions in Capitol Hill. History will ridicule this Hollywood soap for centuries ahead 🤯 Way more juice is provided by the latest War Party P.R. show, sponsored by Raytheon Productions. After all Lloyd Austin, the current Pentagon head, is a former Raytheon weapons peddler. After much fanfare, it was established that the Pentagon will provide not a collection, but a single Patriot battery to Kiev – either with four or eight missile launchers, and either the PAC 2 or PAC 3 version. A Patriot battery comes with radar, lots of computers, power generating equipment, and an “engagement control station”. Little did we know that by 2023 the raging would go beyond paroxysm, Pepe Escobar writes. #Ukraine #Pentagon #war @strategic_culture @rocknrollgeopolitics

🇷🇸 The Serbs are ‘up on the barricades’ yet again. The Kosovo Albanians-only police officers keep provoking the local Serbs. They harass the Serbs only and arrest the innocent Serbian civilians only in a quasi failed state of Kosovo (and Metohija). For instance, one Serb was arrested and detained by the police only because he lives in the same building where the electoral committee is located. Then a few others as well in a matter of a few days in the past week. The Shqiptari taking endless photos of themselves with their index fingers stuck on the triggers of their machine guns go to prove the unprecedented brutality and unscrupulousness of the Kosovo Albanians-only police officers. The goal of the Kosovo Albanians’ hidden agenda is even more blatant now in broad political daylight in the midst of the Ukraine crisis, Тatiana Obrenovic writes. #KosovoIsSerbia #КосовојеСрбија #KosovojeSrbija @strategic_culture

🌐🦅 America’s ‘Unfree’ Allies Under President Biden, the United States has renewed its efforts to promote the values of freedom and democracy around the world. However, when it comes to strategic matters, America is fine with some of its allies being “not free”. This is true for both major non-NATO allies and NATO member states, as Turkey’s example shows. 🔗 Follow this link to find the high-res infographic. ✌️©You are free to repost, reproduce and print this infographic. #sc_infographic #NATO #UnitedStates @strategic_culture

🎭 Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky was the star this week in a carefully orchestrated – yet cringingly obvious – real-life drama. The warmongering spectacle, falsification of history, and manipulation of public emotions were worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster. Yet it was also dripping with superficiality and cheesy contrivance in the best tradition of Hollywood schmaltz. More seriously, though, the sobering takeaway is that the United States and the Kiev regime that it sponsors have absolutely no intention of negotiating a political end to the war in Ukraine with Russia. Far from it, the U.S. rulers are driving their country to evermore war in a way that makes it almost impossible to end through diplomacy ⛔️ 💬 Read more in this week’s Editorial #war #Ukraine @strategic_culture

🤔 Although the problems of China and Russia would remain (Zelensky’s rump Reich doesn’t matter and never did except as a casus belli against Russia), their fate must wait for another day. 💬 Declan Hayes writes #Qatar #Ukraine @strategic_culture

🇸🇾 Although NATO has spared no expense in smearing Syria and her allies, Russia, Iran and Hezbollah in the main, they have the considerable problem that many of their propagandists are thick as shit mercenaries. This is particularly true of those leading NATO’s charge that Syria is a narco state, much like the NATO puppet state of Bosnia & Herzogovina, which NATO illegally and very bloodily wrested from the rest of Serbia. The stolid resistance of the Syrian people will still be saluted when every last one of us is dead and buried ✌️ 💬 Declan Hayes writes #Syria #NATO #Assad @strategic_culture

Little Blinkie gave away the game AGAIN (well, he's hardly the brightest bulb in the lot) - as a few of us wrote extensively about it earlier this year: "The US would not have been able to provide the same level of aid to Kiev if it had not decided to withdraw from Afghanistan." There you go. It was a wilfull decision. NATO miserably loses in Afghanistan AFTER TWENTY YEARS and goes all-out Ukraine, where it will also miserably lose, and then move out to...Taiwan.

💸⛽️ Prohibitively brutal sanctions against Russia have revived the old fears of the old system based on the U.S. dollar. As a result, the countries such as Saudi Arabia are trying to lessen their heavy dependence on the U.S. currency and certainly the renewed talks on petroyuan indicate that the new alternatives devour U.S. dominance world order all the more so. Some tend to believe that it is already happening that Saudi Arabia is selling some amount of oil to China in yuan already but neither the Chinese nor the Saudis want to place a particular emphasis on that publicly. Both sides are overly exposed to petrodollar yet there is no reason for their mutual trade to be carried out using the currency of a third party other than theirs. Particularly because the third party is not a friend of either of them anymore 🤨 One wonders as to how important the Chinese President Xi ‘s visit to Saudi Arabia is and what the birth of petroyuan brings to the world and even more importantly what ‘the jackal on its dying legs’ aka the USA will do about it? 💬 Read more by Natasha Wright #Dollar #Yuan #China #SaudiArabia #oil @strategic_culture

🌍🦅 American Generosity The United States has promised an aid package to Africa fearing losing competition for influence in the continent to countries like China and Russia.

🥁🌎 Is the West preparing its narrative to cut from this unwinnable conflict –Ukraine – and to move on? Is this feasible? Is the West not too deeply invested narratively in the ‘Bleed Russia’ storyline; Putin must not be allowed to win; for that to happen? No, it can happen. Look what occurred in Afghanistan: A huge and profitable boondoggle was wound up within days. And just over a year later, on its anniversary, the Kabul débacle is scarcely noted in the Western press. Media headlines moved on seamlessly from Afghanistan to Ukraine, scarcely with a backwards glance. And already, a diversionary ‘tethered goat’ is being prepared to grab compliant western MSM attention, as the Ukraine meme is quietly shelved, and Serbia’s ‘aggression’ against Kosovo becomes the new ‘aggression’. Look around: the tectonic plates of geo-politics and geo-finance are shifting – shifting radically away from an increasingly flailing West 🎳 💬 By Alastair Crooke #West #Ukraine #geopolitics #WorldOrder @strategic_culture

🇷🇸 If we look at the political turmoil in the Balkans and Serbia and its heartland of Kosovo (and Metohija), some rather gruelling scenes reach us yet again from there. In the municipality of Leposavić, heavily populated by the Serbs, first the local Shiptari tried to commit a massive robbery of the local (Serbian) Treasury. And then soon after in quick succession, in Velika Hoča ‘special police forces’ arrived with a huge storage cistern so as to rob and plunder a humble Serbian family and take away i.e. steal their own wine storage with as many as 42 000 liters of wine of the family Petrović under the false pretext that the family did not pay any tax (which they duly did but to the Serbian tax authorities). After these traumatic events, one wonders if the KFOR can wield security guarantees any more? ❌ 💬 Read more by Tatiana Obrenovic #KosovoIsSerbia #КосовојеСрбија #KosovojeSrbija @strategic_culture
