A general thread for WWIII-related discussion, news, and speculation.

>PLA announces military exercises starting Thursday, after Pelosi leaves
>>38534 No no no anon you don't understand, Big brain china is playing the long con, they've entraped Pelosi to a rock within striking distance where the moment she leaves 200 J-35s (not a copy of the F-35) will rush in with their mach 20 A2A missiles and blow her wrinkly ass out of the sky while the three carrier groups watch on in shock as the new BIG DONG ICBM missile closes in on them, signalling the collapse of the American empire.

>long list of reasons why nobody has the money to wage a retard war >this is why there will be a big retard war! We've been getting steadily further and further away from the possibility of a WW3 from the highpoint of maybe seeing hilary in office onwards America doesn't have soldiers to fill boots on the ground, and if there was a draft the civil war would instantly come to a point. Europe's burnt through almost all of the warchests in the region and the only people logistically capable of waging a foreign war are the humanitarians currently embedded in ukraine who are constantly pushing for peace talks. One of the moron south asia nations like indonesia or pakistan might boil over but unless we end up in some surreal situation where fishpeople with 1920s technology invade an australia with no navy probably it'll be nothing more than some local genocides nobody cares about (again). Between the stifling of ukrainian/russian aid and china dissolving I wonder what's going to happen to the african hordes currently being nursed on gibs
>>38535 If China's "military exercises" aren't an actual deployment for their forces then they've brought dishonor on themselves, their families, and their cows. >>38541 While this is true, never underestimate a failing major economic power that's been backed into a corner and the suicidal lengths they will go to in order to maintain power over others. China, Russia, and America are like cornered animals at the moment.

>>38541 >I wonder what's going to happen to the african hordes currently being nursed on gibs Meet your new neighbors! Nah, they'll just go back to fighting over scraps with bands of marauders and no real central government to speak of. Nigeria might actually keep its shit together, but the central nations are only held together by foreign aid.

>>38542 >While this is true, never underestimate a failing major economic power that's been backed into a corner and the suicidal lengths they will go to in order to maintain power over others. China, Russia, and America are like cornered animals at the moment. But they aren't failing major economic powers. China has never been relevant and stopped growing in mao's own lifetime, russia isn't failing, and the US federal government are not the states from which their economic power has historically arisen. It isn't a case of dying powers lashing out before they lose the power to project themselves overseas. They already lost that power and are losing the illusion. In terms of people who can afford a war, there's pretty much the natural resource rich north europeans and the russians, and a war is very much against their interests. If the US federal government lashes out it'll be against it's own the american people.
>>38541 Lack of resources and manpower isn't a guarantee that someone won't start shit, but yeah WW3 doesn't seem to likely at the moment.
>>38541 >I wonder what's going to happen to the african hordes currently being nursed on gibs Believe it or not most African nations don't have an IQ problem they have a Communism/Gun Control problem. The parts of Africa that allow guns and dislike communists (such as the Russian-backed areas) will survive and perhaps thrive while the largely Western-backed communist shitholes reliant on gibs won't do so well. Countries like Senegal will be where the real toss-up occurs.

Soundbites and talking points define the average retard's world, and have since at least the 1980s if not much longer. I've even tested reasonably "smart" normalfags from time to time, deliberately using unfounded arguments just to see if they'd even have the initiative to pull out their goddamn phones and check me, for instance.

>>38553 >>38561 >nothing is happening The war itself has become boring since the initial failed blitz toward Kiev, but that's not why it's a happening. It's because of the geopolitical situation that has formed since the war started. The impotent sanctions against Russia, the European energy shortages, the food shortages in the third world, as both nations exported food and fertilizer, and NATO ironically growing larger after the invasion are all pretty relevant and important for us.

>>38609 China haven't banned Chips but sand has officially banned sand from Taiwan. It's been signed into law
>>38610 the reason for banning sand is because China is worried about concrete being made and built in the island so I am not sure how much of it affects computer Chips manufacturing factories.
>>38612 IIRC you need the same silica for chip manufacturing as for brick-making (it has specific material properties and isn't the same as sand randomly lying about) so it affects both.
I'd expect China's 'live exercises' to go 'live live'. They're not moving that much hardware for a display of force. To move it back without using in action would lose face. As we knew when Russia's exercises went 'live live' in Ukraine - China has only two times in the year for best conditions to move on Taiwan AND OTHER ISLANDS<----Take note!. One was when Russia went in, and the other is approaching...

>>38636 Why respond? Anything but total indifference is "alarmist" to retards like that and he has nothing to contribute to the thread anyway.
>>38636 A regional conflict in some eastern european bunghole is not a "happening". The actual "happening" is the overblown reactions and posturing from Western Europe and America, and that will actually have significant consequences for ordinary people (especially Krauts), but it won't explode into a world war. A civil war in America is far more likely in the current scenario and admittedly, that would lead into a world conflict as other countries would quickly step in, but everything else has been nothing but posturing from governments who don't know how to react when things don't go their way despite repeated warnings and who are actively hostile against their people. This whole debacle might as well be the biggest social experiment ever conceived, because apparently, manufacturing a pandemic was just testing the waters.
>>38637 >It's all posturing. Pelosi is a Chinese owned asset. If China attacked Taiwan without cause they would lose face. China needs a casus belli to save face. Pelosi's visit was to give China the casus belli required. >2022 and anons still haven't worked out politicians like Xi & Pelosi are on the same team - not yours. Other reasons: Demographically China has to make use of the extra men now or never. (Similar to Russian demographics favoring their 'special operation'). Largest navy in the world, so the 1990s "million man swim" is no longer a joke. Internal political and economic conflicts can be soothed by swapping it for an external enemy/conflict.
>>38642 >the Chinese navy
>>38637 >Pelosi isn't a nuclear weapon. It's not a Cuban missile crisis 2.0 either Reminds me of video related.
>>38642 >China has the US by the balls and it doesn't matter that's why they screech and get mad and run around then do nothing when an alcoholic old lady takes a plane trip This is the logic of the demoralized, "nothing matters because literally everyone is unified against my views it's all one big plan to get people like me". If all these leaders were really that unified then there would be zero point in the theatrics. Fuck I hate people like you so much, I bet you're gonna say "they do da theaters bcuz da pipo wil rise up!!!!!!" and then when someone says anything about people rebelling you immediately flip flop and go "nothing madders da pipo r 2 dum and docile 2 do anyfing even wen da elites r poop on dem". Fuck you nigger tired of your shit.
Isn't it morning in East Asia right now? Has there been any news so far? Is China making a move? Will they retreat their troops? Whatever the outcome is, they have managed to show the world they are more than willing and capable of taking over Taiwan if they wish. Might not happen now, but eventually, especially if Western leaders continue eating copious amounts of shit. And they won't do a goddamned thing even if China does invade.

As if they were sit around and take it. They would absolutely take it militarily, but that's beside the point. >UN has condemned America over Pelosi's visit >G7 has condemned China over their response More pathetic grandstanding posturing exactly as we've been seeing for over 50 years. >Chinese officials apparently insulted Thailand as an undeveloped country for supporting Pelosi's trip >Thailand's response was to laugh at China's face policy because they know their country is shit and don't give a fuck Why did China even feel the need to insult Thailand anyway? What the fuck did they even do? Bug people are truly below even subhuman vermin. >Taiwan's defense ministry has been hit with cyber attacks Is there anything that makes these 'cyber attacks' unique at all? Don't those happen to defense agencies all the time? I know the bugmen have been supposedly amping up their cyber offense efforts or so they claim. >America thinks the military drills aren't going to end ever since it's actually a defacto embargo of the island There isn't a single living soul in the upper echelons of the American government capable of forward-thinking. >China has begun demanding all countries reaffirm the One China Policy More bugpeople posturing. Most countries don't recognize Taiwan as a sovereign nation anyway. Truly pathetic. This shitshow makes Eastern Europe look like a gargantuan, literary epic. It's almost vomit-inducing. I wonder how history books will cover this shit 50 years from now? "The great drooling monkey, semen gargle fuck up of the 21st century"? All because of a saggy old bitch. Yes, I know the ROC x PRC tensions go back several decades, but to think this entire shitshow is reaching its peak because some woman cannot contain her desire to collude her way into stocks is like an award-winning comedy skit. Enjoy your economic stagnation.
>>38663 Geopolitics is fun isn't it?
>>38664 The most psychotically hilarious thing is that even if China did decide to invade Taiwan, they'd be shooting themselves in the foot because of pic related 1 at >>38661. They'd be bringing not just the world back into the stone age, but also themselves. They think they'd be able to just storm right in and suddenly get a gorillion chinkbux for free like this is some kind of goddamned video game, seemingly ignoring the fact that getting all the manufacturing plants up and running again would take months, if not years, on top of having to deal with impotent Western sanctions. Then again, I can't imagine the bug vermin are capable of thinking ahead like that. Although the West has lost an equal number of brain cells. Besides, if they want Taiwan so badly, it would be easier to simply negotiate with them and turn them into a semi-independent 'special economic zone', or whatever the fuck that means, and maybe not totally fuck it up like they did with Hong Kong, but I wouldn't put it past the cockroaches to mismanage the island into oblivion if that ever happened. I am convinced this is all one big, elaborate comedy skit. There is no way this is real. It's gotta be some kind of social experiment. Maybe that's why anons are betting on WW3 actually happening. It would be preferable to slow rot and stagnation caused by the constant backfiring of geopolitical kindergarten bickering, with little to no signs of recovery. Pooh Bear makes Zelensky look like Napoleon.

>>38663 >Why did China even feel the need to insult Thailand anyway? What the fuck did they even do? China historically saw all other nations as barbarian tributaries with itself being the centre of civilization as the Middle Kingdom. When Anglos attempted to establish relations with them in the 1700s, that English diplomats refused to make a gesture in the presence of the emperor to beg at his feet was seen as a shameless insult. Thailand refusing to pay lip service hurts their feelings in the same way, and their asking all countries to affirm the One China policy is looking for that same external validation of their superiority and benevolence.
>>38668 In other words, it means absolutely jack fucking shit. Amazing. Is this what "hurting the feelings of the Chinese people" refers to? If that is the case, then I propose we turn this thread into a 'let's laugh at how retarded these chinks are' thread. Beyond pathetic. It's no wonder these 'live military exercises' are the global equivalent of waving your limp, impotent dick around in hopes of impressing or scaring someone, only it turns out Taiwan has been NTRing mainlanders for decades with its harem of chip buyers. Which doesn't mean West Taiwan couldn't actually attempt an invasion, it seems to me they are more concerned with saving face than actually doing anything. The Cuban missile crisis represented a much greater threat of a world war than this shit.
>>38666 I don't think China is entirely worried about that. They can produce 27nm chips just fine which are good enough for 80s/90s-tier computers (basically industrial process machinery), they just don't have the technology for the more advanced 7nm chips used in modern technology which that infographic discusses. Historically China has been invaded via Taiwan which is their primary concern as they ramp up aggression in the South China Sea/Eurasia. If they invade Taiwan they will also invade the South China Sea and possibly India. Xi is trying to paint himself as the new Mao which is backfiring right now because of all the disasters and other shit in China for the last two (going on three) years. He needs to invade to placate the rampant Chinese nationalists who drank the Kool-Aid in order to not get ousted by the vice president who is considered to have about equal power to him (the two went to the other's "main city" during the last elections to act as hostages against each other because they distrust each other that much). This is ideologically driven, but Xi is smart enough to understand the ramifications so he won't do it until China's economy has completely collapsed (incoming since last November when the housing market crisis started).
>>38670 >He needs to invade to placate the rampant Chinese nationalists who drank the Kool-Aid in order to not get ousted by the vice president So, essentially the same principle behind Dems provoking Russia into warfare because they need to have young GOP voters murdered? Anons have been saying that was the plan and so far there are no signs of that ever happening. I can see Poor bear wanting a war to save himself as well but whether it will actually happen is a different story. Do other CCP members and the vice-president agree to a possible invasion as well? Because if not, then can very well throw Xi under the bus if it ever happens by rallying up the people against him, similarly to how the US government would immediately collapse if it ever declares war on Russia or China, or anyone else, really. The only difference is that young chinklings have (i.e., ages 15~25) have been successfully brainwashed Best Korea style into believing the CCP is the ultimate savior and that China is the greatest nation in the planet and can do no wrong, but that is still not enough support for an invasion either way, and if shit hits the fan, these chinklings will try to likely try to dodge a draft or conscription from fear of losing access to their chinkshit casino fake anime girl games. >This is ideologically driven, but Xi is smart enough to understand the ramifications so he won't do it until China's economy has completely collapsed (incoming since last November when the housing market crisis started). I can see it stagnating like post-bubble Japan, but a collapse would still take many, many years. It would take Argentinian levels of total fuckery to collapse the Chinese economy. Like, say, -50% drop in GDP or something. I find it more likely for the US and EU economies to collapse first. Though there is no denying that the days of "China will grow large" are coming to an end. People back in the 70s and 80s were pretty much betting that Japan would remain an economic powerhouse for the foreseeable decades, until the bubble happened. Now, it looks like the same thing is about to happen to China, except they have no Abenomics to prevent the economy from flatlining completely. I admit I am not too knowledgeable on economics, so I'm just saying this based on my layman's observations and comparisons. In other words, my opinion is just as shitty and worthless as the rest of this thread. Of course, this doesn't mean the Chinese economy can't go belly up, just that it will take time. Maybe a decade or two? By that point, Xi will have already been ousted or dead.
>>38669 It's their "face" culture that holds appearances above substance
Apparently a Russian senator is promising support to China should they invade Taiwan and wants to pass legislation through the Duma to secure military aid for China in the event of war.
>>38676 And even still, absolutely nothing is going to happen. Seems he's only doing that as part of Russia's attempts to spite the west and force governments into fucking up more and more.

In other news, in a rather surprising turn of events, Amnesty International actually admitted that ukraine stations their military positions inside civilian objects, something Russia has been complaining about since pretty much February. >Amnesty International accuses Ukraine of stationing troops in civilian facilities. The human rights organization believes that by placing military equipment and weapons in schools, hospitals and residential areas, the Ukrainian military endanger civilians. The deployment of combat positions and firing on such territories turns them into military targets, strikes on which result in the deaths of people and the destruction of civil infrastructure, the report said.

>>38686 Okay, that's fucking dirty if it's true. "All's fair," but with your own goddamn people?
>>38687 I should probably ask this in the hohol war thread, but how the fuck is Zelensky still in office? Does he really have that much support from the government and the military? With how he intends to continue until every Ukrainian young man aged 15~30 is murdered despite fighting a losing war, you would think someone would try to oust him in order to achieve peace negotiations/find a political solution. What do they gain from keeping him around? Do they really want western gibs that bad?
>>38688 The entire Zelensky junta is controlled by CIA, anon. Globohomo doesn't want to lose its grip on Ukraine as its proxy state, they will "fight" until the last Ukrainian - something Russia has been warning about since day one as well.
>>38688 On top of what >>38689 said, there have been a bunch of purges, even since the beginning. Within the first week or two, one of their main negotiators had his car shot up by Ukrainian troops for being a "traitor", I guess because he was actually trying to negotiate instead of just pretending.
>>38689 >>38690 Why Ukraine, though? It's another slavic shithole. Do they really want to be present at Russia's doorstep that badly? What would they even gain from it? Is it the black sea? The sea of azov? Power for the sake of power? Grandstanding against Russia out of hubris? This whole situation is just bizarre. At least Taiwan is a major manufacturing hub. But I can't see what Ukraine could possibly offer them. Even Worst Korea is more strategically placed and relevant. Wouldn't it be better to keep Ukraine as a neutral/intermediary power between East and West? I really don't get it. The more I think about this, the more it feels like recent history (15 years) was written by some schizo.
>>38687 Have you been living under a rock? Anons were posting videos of Kindergarten teachers losing their shit over Ukraine positioning artillery next to the schools way back in March. >>38688 Ukrainian machismo culture is a hell of a drug, and the old guard want to see him fuck everything up out of spite because about 2/3rds of politicians elected in the last Ukrainian elections had never held power before and they did a massive purge of leadership and non-elected offices on their way in. It's a combination of populists drinking the Kool-Aid and nobody being willing to take charge. It's your classic example of "country votes in a Nationalist party and buys into their own propaganda, biting off more than they can chew with too much ideology to back out." From what I understand there were double digit attempts on his life back in March. At this point every able-bodied man has either been conscripted or has bribed themselves out of conscription. Consider how nobody ever tried to assassinate the leadership of the Khmer rouge while they marched millions of people to their deaths.
>>38687 >but with your own goddamn people? They are goyim
>>38691 >Why Ukraine, though? Prior to the war, NATO had made it quite clear their plan was twofold: >1) Set themselves up militarily in the Sea of Azov to launch a preemptive invasion fo Russia in order to acquire a direct sea route to the Caspian Sea in order to have sea axcess to Iran (before the war this was 70km of land they needed to blitzkrieg and it would have effectively bankrupted Russia by doing so preventing a Russian response as the caucus regions would likely go along with it). >2) Have direct uninterrupted access to Russia to spread gay nigger propaganda because the land separating Kharkiv from Moscow is an open plain/border much like the flat parts of the US-Mexico border
>>38691 >Why Ukraine, though? Why not? Ukraine is right there and Russia has wanted it back for decades and unlike many other Eastern European countries, Ukraine isn't in NATO so it was "up for grabs" for Russia without automatically involving anyone else and the reverse is true as well. Glowniggers can play chicken with Russia using Ukraine as the car without being compelled by treaty to defend them if things go completely sour. >At least Taiwan is a major manufacturing hub. But I can't see what Ukraine could possibly offer them. Well Ukraine is a bread basket region.

>>38700 It was common knowledge during the USSR because the USSR leveraged it to get a lot of countries to unwillingly turn red in those parts of the world, but these days most people don't even know that milk comes from a dairy farm and doesn't just show up at the supermarket because people magically will it there.
>>38686 It is saddening to see Amnesty be so careless in their reporting. A proper report would place greater importance on the undisputed fact that Russia has murdered many civilians, that they rape and plunder wherever they go, as well as present the historical precedences for such actions by the Russian army. This would then serve as an explanation as to the occasional, uncorroborated reports of Ukrainians stationing military equipment in civilian areas: The heroes of Ukraine are determined to fight to the last to keep the Russian hordes away from their families, to prevent their murder and rape and the stealing of all their possessions. Such reporting is highly irresponsible and could damage morale. Amnesty should be thoroughly investigated for Russian agents.

The naval invasion will take out a lot of their young, virile men, the inevitable take over will force even more to stay put on the island to pacify the people. Even then, the Taiwanese will probably be shooting each other over the choice of becoming a region of China or liberate themselves, a la Troubles style. And even assuming they manage to completely take over the entire place and its economy with 100% approval, all the other SEA nations will very likely just join whatever US-backed coalition can form just to protect themselves from a hostile nation that has declared time and time again that they have clay on most of the islets around them. >>38688 None of the people in the Ukrainian government have any stake in Ukraine or are natural Ukrainian citizens to begin with.

>>38750 So it's just like the Ukros war?
>>38751 China has nukes and is in direct conflict with America, so it's a bigger threat. If America doesn't help Taiwan (it's split 50/50 right now that America is egging them into war but will not help, just like Ukraine), then it's a major event for geopolitics but a minor event until 5-10 years down the line for war. America's problem is they set a legal precedent helping Ukraine, but helping Taiwan is equivalent to hypocrisy since their justification for doing so is literally the opposite reason for why they are helping Ukraine against Russia (autonomy of smaller republics against large powers).
>>38742 Xi shot some firecrackers over Taiwan and the Taiwanese learned about it from Japan rather than their own government which had minimized it
>>38753 I am aware that China's a bigger threat. I meant that other countries aside from those you mentioned will not be involved militarily but will absolutely be assraped from every conceivable angle economically, which is frankly what I'm afraid of.
>>38755 >Other countries Maybe India and some countries in the South China Sea, but only if America gets involves. >Economic Assraping Not nearly as badly. The price of computers will go up for about 4 years between more chips being produced in Israel/Germany and America working out the bugs of their chip facility in Arizona, however most countries won't notice a difference. The gas crisis/food crisis plays a bigger role in the raping of the world economy than Taiwan falling to China and making computers/phones more expensive.
>>38748 It's probably not even the end of the world either, I keep seeing fags say shit about horsemen of the apocalypse but the supposed "plague/pestilence" that some of them claim corona was didn't kill even a percent of the global population and so far the "wars" haven't been much more than typical regional squabbles and one overhyped shitfest in a slavnigger hellhole. If the incoming "famine" that I keep seeing people say is incoming winds up being yet another chicken little screechfest I'm going to viciously mock the doomsayers whenever I see them.

I am a Christian myself and I have looked into the topic extensively and concluded that while current events do loosely tie with events in Revelation and Timothy, there are still a number of factors the Bible says will happen in those days that are not happening. Particularly as the gentleman above said, the total death counts are nowhere close to the numbers the Bible says will die. It doesn't mean that catastrophe couldn't strike, but that a large section of the population has been trained to be alarmists because YouTube channels make a lot of money spreading doom, MSM makes money spreading doom, shekelberg makes money spreading doom, and the all-seeing-eye controls everyone and everything through spreading doom. I for one have had enough doom. Even Yeadon has recently been forced to agree to the truth that we don't even know if "the flu/cold" is caused by "a virus." There is nothing to fear but fear itself.
>>38758 There are alarmists crying doomsday because in a way, it's more comforting to think that way. It's more comforting to think that if things get bad enough, it's all over and we don't have to worry about it anymore, and maybe God will start from scratch or something. It's a lot less comforting to think that none if it is leading anywhere, none of it is conclusive, there will be no climax or finale, and they and everyone else have no choice but to just keep wading through the shit into a future of wading through the shit.

Meanwhile, Russia is grabbing land from a sovereign nation by paying off local traitors to proclaim themselves "independent" so they can consequently join Russia. And the only reason they're in Ukraine in the first place is because Russians deported/genocided Ukrainians and imported its own to control the land during the USSR times.

One thing I've never understood about China's imperialistic dickwaving is why does anybody other than cucked vassal states and maybe Soviet Bloc comrades so much as pay lipservice to their absurd notion that Taiwan is not a legitimate state? Taiwan is a clearly defined region populated by a clearly defined people and it is not under the control of the CCP nor do any of the people want to be part of PRC. At no point in either country's history has Taiwan been under PRC control so there is no reason anybody besides some butthurt insectoid should think the Taiwanese do not deserve independence from the commies. Same shit with Hong Kong really since the nation that Britain loaned it from no longer exists but unfortunately "Her Majesty" doesn't see it that way.

Lawyers are meant to be the most qualified in law outside of judges. While I don't think that only lawyers and other legal-types should have power, they're typically the most suited to understand laws and the backgrounds of them. Stopping lawyers from becoming politicians is like stopping religious students from becoming monks. >>38787 Taiwan isn't recognized because doing so would make business extremely hard in East Asia, and it would cause an international incident.

>>38812 Really feel for Taiwan, they are the original "Republic of China" despite being on an invaded territory called Formosa and even their flag is the original one too, the very same banner that is on some mausoleums for Yatsen Sun in PR China. The whole "Commie China was always the original China" is some massive doublethink by the west to get all that sweet wampum penny labor costs. It really will be seen as clown world in future history books if they are allowed to portray the truth at mainstream. And still it seems inane that the US supports them given that originally Yatsen Sun disliked americans for being the most chaotic/backstabbing party in the 8 Nation Alliance.
>>38831 >and even their flag is the original one too, Actually that's just the Kuomintang's flag. This IIRC was the Republican Chinese flag from 1912, which I believe was supposed to symbolize all the different chink ethnic groups before the country was split up into warlord states. >>38786 You should check out 8chan/cb/ for the cute boys/shota pics, I have a feeling you'll like it there too >>38795 >Referendums are easily influenced and manipulated So are elections and politicians, difference being that a referendum has a direct, visible impact on the world whereas letting a bunch of limp wristed bureaucrats and lawyers choose for you will take years of going nowhere until the solution will be long overdue. Also, AFAIK Switzerland functions pretty much like a direct democracy and they're doing just fine. Also, from direct experience, lawyers are not expert of jack shit, you're thinking of jurists and law professors (who also shouldn't hold any political office imo). They're just a bunch of useless assets to the law, they just interpret whatever the fuck they want from it and bend it to their liking, but cannot implement practical policies for shit. IMO politics should mostly be about leadership, getting people to accept a given idea and being diplomatically involved in the country and the world, while leaving the actual policy making to those who would be directly and indirectly affected by it. >Stopping lawyers from becoming politicians is like stopping religious students from becoming monks. They're both good ideas though. Religious students generally speaking fall more in line with the philosophers than the Church's bureaucrats.

>>38851 >but if each of said regions could impose shit through direct democracy then it would follow that higher magnitude legislation can be passed through similar means. No it really doesn't. A fucking leaf in Vancouver doesn't know anything about the personal situation of a fucking leaf in Halifax, and giving in to ideas like "direct democracy" is a recipe for disaster. In the American example most "red" states have a single "blue" urban stronghold that has 60% of the state's population trying to rule over the other 40% spread out over the rest of the state without understanding the difference between an urban and a rural environment. The entire idea of a direct democracy is extremely childish and extremely insidious precisely because it is two wolves voting to eat a sheep and trying to say otherwise is either insidious or extremely ignorant. The majority (population) does not have the right to vote away the rights of the minority (majority by land mass) and any attempts to "secure" the system are just bandaid patches better fulfilled by a full-fledged constitutional republic.

>>38852 So how local would it have to be for you to work? Because as things are now, the minority seems to hold almost all the cards in every democracy I know of and things went to absolute shit because of it.
>>38852 >>38858 Monarch as the central authority, with local lords as the local authority. This is the best system and always was.
>>38860 Queen's Blade is the best system. It weeds out the cowards who would turn the country into a sissified bureaucracy, provides the people with actual representation without the trappings of real or representative Democracy, provides the stability and decisiveness of monarchism without the elitist clique bullshit and it guarantees that whoever gets the throne wants it more than they want to be alive. The last point of course includes megalomaniacal douchebags and crazy zealots alongside the noble warriors and brave idealists but whatever that's what the right to bear arms is for.
>>38860 Yeah, feudalism is the only system that works. Hope we'll get to it soon.
>>38860 Aren't the lords able to fuck your wife infront of you?
>>38860 Feudalism ended because monarchs successful centralized power. You can never stop the ambitions of a truly great man.
>>38875 No, but actually yes. The notion that it was a codified, widespread law is mostly false (this is the point monarchists will argue against). But that doesn't mean it didn't happen, and that some lords didn't abuse their authority with impunity. Were lords able to fuck your wife in front of you, in the sense of an explicit legal ruling? Usually, no. Were lords able to fuck your wife in front of you, in the sense that they can just do it and know you can't do shit to stop him? Yes. Was it common? Probably not TOO common, between the ones who wouldn't do that even if they did have legal right, and the ones who want to do it but know it's a bad idea to abuse their authority for something so pointless. But that still leaves the ones degenerate enough to want to and dumb/shortsighted enough to actually do it, and that's surely still a significant minority of them.

That aside you're either stuck under a rock or incredibly oblivious because the doomsayers have been crying about the sky falling harder than they used to since the corona lockdowns. >>38764 Makes sense. I think the inability to accept that chaos is an ever present factor is also the reason you see niggerpills blow a gasket and spin tales of incredibly elaborate schemes by nebulous secret societies to make [x] more badder because it's more comforting to think some smelly jew cabal is the entire reason the world is fucking stupid instead of just being one aspect among many. Taking out jew cabals would be a good thing but you'd have to be entirely delusional to think that would solve all problems forever and ever and that there aren't other people out there who will fill that void who are just as conniving. It's also easier to excuse inaction when you hyped your enemy up as a borderline deity. >>38849 As expected, if they were actually intent on starting shit they'd have killed Pelosi.
>>38884 >hyped your enemy up as a borderline deity Money is the god of many people and the noses do control how the money moves at macro nation levels most of the time, but i agree, someone usually always fills the void when it has been proved before someone does. As long as money goes that will happen time and time again but do have to mention in some nations eliminating someone(s) usually ended the problem when combined with an ongoing policy.

>>38974 >Plausible deniability, huh. I mean realistically if I was the head of the missile procurement program in Taiwan, I'd be under a fuckton of stress since Taiwan's strategy in the last 30 years hasn't changed despite every ally on Earth screaming at them to fix their missile program already. People with heart conditions in the first place are more likely to have a heart attack from lack of sleep/stress during a crisis. That's why I'll wait and see if any other officials die of heart attacks who weren't already at high risk.

At the same time, the act will raise taxes especially for low-end wage earners and small businesses, completing the regime’s destruction of the middle-class. More likely, passage of the act will trigger destruction of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, and a stampede out of dollar-denominated investments, which is to say, a very severe financial crisis. Credit will freeze, the distribution and sales of goods will cease, interest will stop being paid on virtually all outstanding debt, the bond market will implode. But the process could conceivably invite an attempted Chinese takeover of the USA, if not militarily, then in a way similar to America’s asset-stripping operations in the collapsed Soviet Union of the 1990s, a looting spree — as seen many other times in history when empires founder. Or else, the rest of the world will just kick back and witness the spectacle of our struggle as the lights of Western Civ flicker out. (Europe will be right in it with us, by the way.)

The early ones they won by outjewing everyone (bringing in massive numbers of immigrants during a ceasefire and then ending the ceasefire on their own terms once they had trained up those immigrants in secret), and the latter ones they won using stolen technology and "oy vey holocaust" pandering to get European countries to give up their own technology and send volunteers. Or do you think the Israelis actually did any of the real grunt work? There's a reason Lebanon was a huge failure (they "won" by blitzkrieging and then kvetching about how it would be better for Lebanon to end the fighting instead of waging a long war since America would get involved) and they've been getting their ass handed to them by Hezbollah since 2006.
>>39078 I prefer the Runrig version myself.
>>39076 I can give you an off the top of my head summary for the their early years. It was with ample help from the UK who owned Palestine at the time, because the UK government had multiple zionists in extremely powerful positions still does I guess I don't keep up with modern UK government it's too depressing. Before it was officially a country and the jews were in the early stages of their spic tier invasion of Palestine, mostly eastern European jews after the post-WW1 pogroms happened iirc (as in the hardcore bolshevik type niggers). When it was still a UK territory they would frequently and deliberately provoke the Palestinians into violent action which in turn caused the UK military to intervene, and when I say intervene they fucking intervened, as in pulled some classic UK colonial occupation shit on the Palestinians and pitted tribes against one another before basically wiping out all of their fighting age males and driving the remaining ones out of Palestine along with destroying/exiling anything resembling competent Palestinian leadership which left mostly women, children, and old men behind. It was after they had sufficiently increased their population that the jews began to massacre/rape entire villages of mostly defenseless Palestinians in order to intimidate the rest into running away to some other countries, this includes villages that weren't hostile to, if not openly friendly with the jews. This is all while they were doing their typical kvetching shit about "muh nawtsee persecution :^(" whenever there were any objections from other nations, literally crying out in pain as they committed genocide. I can't remember exactly when this next group of events took place in the timeline but I'm pretty sure it was just before they had started massacring villages. There was a point where the jews were organizing a terrorist campaign to drive the UK government out of Palestine and they were equipping themselves with massive amounts of smuggled firearms from their friends abroad. This campaign succeeded and the anglos were driven out of Palestine. This is where the subversive and conniving kikery portion takes a turn towards all but open hostility towards neighboring Arab countries as well. The UN at some point after the withdrawal of the UK split Palestine between the remaining Palestinians and the jews. Actually you should look into the 1947 partition of israel. and don't just glance at a wikipedia article either, actually read up on it from other sources. This is when they really start taking and taking and taking while daring anyone to do shit about it. After this point my memory is fuzzy, I know something happened due to a miscommunication (potentially a deliberate misunderstanding) between Jordan and the jews, I also know there was more UN fuckery and a whole lot of retarded posturing (Arabs do that a lot) which lead to, from what I understand, was an unexpected outbreak of hostility and the Arab nations that were circlejerking about what they were totally gonna do were caught way off guard by a realtively small number of jews then basically crumbled in one of the most embarrassing post-WW2 fuck ups. One other thing to note is that before the UK started allowing the non-Palestinian jews into the region there was already an established population of Palestinian jews who actually got along pretty well with their Palestinian Arab neighbors, and many of them were openly opposed to the creation of israel. The jews you occasionally hear about throwing a fit or starting a riot in israel are usually related to these guys. That's just off the top of my head, if you really want to get into the nasty geopolitics of it all and want a much better understanding than some random strelok's interpretation just look into late 19th century Palestine and go from there. It may not make you outright despise jews, but it will make you gain an understanding of just how underhanded they are.
>>39099 >massive amounts of smuggled firearms from their friends abroad For example, Forgotten Weapons did two videos not to long ago about an early Israeli LMG (the Dror). An industrial-scale illegal factory was set up in Canada to provide machine guns to the (not yet formally created) Israel, but parts were discovered during a border inspection and it led to a larger investigation by the RCMP that uncovered the whole scheme, and the Zionists involved were arrested. Then the charges were dropped, and the RCMP politely gave them back their machine guns, parts, and tools.
>>39099 I'd like to read this myself, do you have your sources on hand?
>>39118 Not immediately without having to dig through a bunch of files, I read up on this shit years ago hence why my summary is so shoddy. I recall The Hundred Years War On Palestine being a decent summary. The author is Rashid Khalidi, he has also written about the middle east in general and the roles that various states have played in its current situation it might not hurt to check out his other stuff too to get a feel for his biases.

>>39214 This rat-faced pussyfooting is the kind of shit that makes me want America to get its shit kicked in even if I hate the bug people.
>>39214 >>39217 I think the US government knows damn well how fiscally insolvent this nation is and how close to an economic meltdown we are, as well with newer global competition to replace the US Dollar as world reserve currency which would create hyperinflation for us, and the only scapegoat the US government can find is another world war with either Russia or China, or perhaps both. And honestly, with how divided this country has become, I don't think we'd stand much of a chance winning anymore. Not that we have been winning our other wars either lol.
>>39220 Besides the Gulf War in the 90s what is the last war that the US actually undoubtedly won without a tremendous amount of help from foreign powers? The Spanish-American war?
>>39243 Pacific Campaign in WW2 was mostly a 100% American effort. Slapped those japs to the bottom of the fucking ocean.
>>39243 Various Indian wars during the expansion west, too.
>>39246 >>39247 So a war started 80 years ago against a technologically inferior nation and some pre-Spanish American wars with featherniggers in the 19th century. Or were there significant injun wars in the early 20th century? I know they'd all been thoroughly dominated by WW2.
>>39250 >Japan >technologically inferior nation nigger they were on par with us and we were getting buttfucked in the first half. only after we cracked their codes and got our supply chains in order did it start to turn around for us. if they had more access to supplies/resources and didn't fuck up royally at Midway the war may have been very different.
>>39251 Didn't they have a lot of huge issues with their planes and tanks and weren't their guns more prone to jamming than most other WW2 era weapons? Or am i thinking of the Soviets?
And why does my ID keep changing, I'm doing nothing with my VPN
>>39259 Not sure how mechanically sound nip weapons were, but Soviet weapons almost certainly not. They were designed to take a beating, but when it finally broke it was tossed aside and replaced with a new one quickly.
>>39251 No. The US and Japan were trading evenly in the first half of the war, no buttfucking was taking place. Even the much lauded Zero vs the often disparaged Wildcat actually only resulted in even trades once the US pilots worked up. This is of course a Japan in full mobilization verses a US that was still groggy from waking up, but going into the War the US and the Japanese were very roughly equal. Technologically, the US was very slightly superior at the onset and the US' design doctrines were generally superior - although in ways that would take experience to prove, but that experience was something the US lacked in general leading to generally poor tactical choices. >if they had more access to supplies/resources and didn't fuck up royally at Midway the war may have been very different. While the supply issue is true, the war would have went on a lot longer, by the time that Midway happened the US already had more Essex-class Carriers under construction than the Japanese navy could theoretically support Fleet Carriers. Even if the Japanese had won Midway, all that would have happened was the US would have been angrier and willing to sacrifice more for the war machine. >>39259 Japan didn't really have tanks because they had basically no need for them. Where they were fighting in China, their home islands, and in general most of the islands in the Pacific were not Tanker territory - you pretty much had to be at least US-tier insane to bring full sized tanks along to those battlefields during that time frame. Obviously, that means the Australians brought tanks. As a result, most of the Japanese tank designs above the light tank weight class were bad. They had no real experience with the heavier tanks and saw no real use for them only cobbling together designs here and there as proof of concepts. Much in the same way as the US' M6A1 Heavy Tank being a monumental joke of a tank, the US Armored Corps saw no practical need for a Heavy Tank they could not use, so they only really designed and built the thing due to political pressure. The Japanese aircraft had 'problems', but these were almost entirely on doctrinal grounds. Admittedly, the US pilots that managed to get their hands on a Zero (just to name one example) considered it a flying hunk of garbage (Pappy Boyington spared no curses describing it) - but that's primarily because US pilots wanted US doctrine aircraft. The Japanese weren't that impressed by US aircraft either and considered most of the features the US Pilots loved to be useless wastes of weight. When the US aircraft completely eclipsed the Japanese aircraft was when the Japanese could no longer keep up with the production of new aircraft (let alone training new pilots). The aircraft of both sides that were contemporary developments were more or less on par with each other, we just didn't see them because Japan was unable to produce the aircraft in sufficient numbers because resource shortages or the US bombed the factory. Had the supply chain not been an issue for the Japanese, the US wouldn't have dominated they sky as much late-war. Where the Japanese were just straight up inferior to the US was their standard infantry equipment, but they weren't actually bad at that either by any real means. They were only slightly worse than the Italians, who (despite being a complete meme half the time because of their doctrine) actually had pretty decent (albeit also outdated) equipment. The Arisaka was a weak cartridge and the less said about the Nambu the better, they completely lacked a Man-Portable AT weapon (suicide lances do not count), and their AT Guns were bad in general. They had decent artillery, though, and good proliferation of indirect fire support.
>>39266 >The Arisaka was a weak cartridge Weak enough to be a problem? Given that over the next couple decades, every significant army on the planet moved to cartridges significantly weaker than 6.5 (never mind 7.7), it doesn't seem like that would have been a major factor. >they completely lacked a Man-Portable AT weapon (suicide lances do not count), and their AT Guns were bad in general Not really surprising if they assumed that the battlefields they'd be fighting in were unfit for tanks, they had little plan to bring their own, and expected the enemy not to either.
>>39268 >Weak enough to be a problem? It was weak enough that there were over 100 recorded instances of an Arisaka bullet ricocheting off US Marine's skull, leaving the Marine alive. Which is admittedly well less than 1% of the times US Marines got shot in the head, but it doesn't exactly leave a glowing record for the Arisaka. For a round that is almost the size of a 30-06, that should basically never happen. >>Not really surprising Granted.

>>39250 >Technologically inferior No they were only inferior in terms of resources and tank tech. Their navy was one of the best of the day and their reasoning for attacking the US even though they knew war would be difficult was just how bad the US Army was back in the 30s. You really cannot comprehend what a massive switch came in both domestic and foreign policy after Pearl Harbor, regardless if it was a deliberate mismanagement or not. It's the same story with espionage, CIAniggers only happened as a response to German and Soviet spies being so much better than America's. What helped the US get the better tools was good ol' fashioned capitalist competitiveness. Of course a lot of blunders and monopolies were present and they hindered a lot of the early shit, but it's not impossible to say that the US jumped like 50 years in the tech tree during WW2 alone.

>>39212 8/11/22 Part 1 All by design, America is plunging into destitution, bankruptcy and mass famine. Along the path to that outcome, the American people are rapidly shifting grocery purchases away from conventional grocery stores to discount “dollar” stores, where heavily processed shelf-stable and frozen food items can be purchased for $1.25. Imagine the nutrient depletion in a box of generic pop-tarts sold for $1.25. Imagine the food safety shortcuts and lack of quality control for a $1.25 frozen pizza that’s sold in a dollar store. Realize that, for many Americans, dollar stores are the last step on the path to famine. If food prices continue to rise — as they are on track to do — the very same people who can barely afford dollar store processed food right now will soon find themselves without food options at all. They will starve: https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-08-02-americans-shift-food-shopping-to-dollar-stores-as-their-last-desperate-strategy-before-mass-famine-and-revolt.html ▲ MY COMMENT: Many of us have warned about this over and over. Too bad for the people who won't listen! The outcome will be starvation for SEVERAL REASONS: #1 Food will cost too much when we reach hyperinflation. #2 There will be GOVT-manufactured shortages of food due to all the GOVT-sabotage against farmers and food processing plants. #3 Even if they do resort to gas station junk food WITH NO VITAMINS OR NUTRIENTS their bodies would slowly die from MALNUTRITION just like what happens in the third world!! Try a diet without any vitamins and nutrients and you'll slowly starve to death anyway on top of getting diabetes and cancer! If Americans are smart they'll prepare if they can afford to and they'll start thinking about hunting game, raising some meat rabbits or chickens, growing a garden, whatever they need to do to keep the food on the table. If they remain stupid they'll simply die off. AN OLD WISE SAYING: If you have an egg you have a meal!

>>39287 8/11/22 Part 2 RUMOR + MY COMMENT: There are ongoing rumors that Zelensky will be thrown under the bus by the US and Europe. I say it is a load of bullshit! One may ask why so? My response would be the $$$ MIC $$$ American/NATO war contractors are making way too much money keeping Zelensky in power in Ukraine, because without Zelensky Ukraine would likely cave, settle an agreement and negotiate a peace deal with Russia! That would NOT make profits for the $$$ MIC $$$ Sadly many Americans do not understand what "corruption" means today. It's as if the public school system completely erased that term, as well as every dictionary for the last 20+ years! Literally there are people so dumb today they do not know corruption exists, many do not even comprehend such possibility! BUT I DO. And I'm saying it right now: keeping Zelensky in power profits the $$$ MIC $$$ at any and at all cost to taxpayers and civilian life!!! And if raking in profits for this $$$ MIC $$$ meant risking nuclear war motherfucker they'd double down and risk it!! Being corrupt does not necessarily mean you have common sense to know when to quite while you're ahead because greed and control are fatally addictive like any other drug. On August 11, TV Zvezda released footage documenting the destructive power of the Russian TOS-1A thermobaric rocket system. The footage shows a salvo of 15 TOS-1A rockets wiping out a number of residential buildings in the town of Pisky where Ukrainian service members have been taking shelter. The town, which is located right on the frontline with the city of Donetsk, was abandoned by its residents years ago. Kiev forces turned the town into a large fortress: https://southfront.org/new-footage-from-ukraine-shows-destructive-power-of-russias-tos-1a-rocket-launcher/ Speaking to The Washington Post on Wednesday, an anonymous Ukrainian government official said the explosions at the base were in fact caused by an operation carried out by Ukrainian special forces.

A Ukrainian official told Politico on August 10 that “you can say this is it” when asked about the start of Ukraine’s planned counteroffensive. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky vaguely noted on August 10 that the war “began with Crimea and must end with Crimea - with its liberation.” Russian officials remain confused about the August 9 attack on the Saki Air Base in Russian-occupied Crimea, over 225km behind Russian lines, which destroyed at least eight Russian aircraft and multiple buildings. Satellite imagery confirmed reports from Ukraine’s air force that the attack destroyed at least eight Russian aircraft, contradicting Russian claims that the explosions did not damage any aircraft and were not the result of an attack.

>>39284 >>39285 To be honest China is getting BTFOd by every country in the Western world. Feels like the West realized that Ukraine is a lost cause and are just dunking on an easier target.
>>39290 Good I hope memelensky's head gets mounted on a Russian tank after everyone abandons him. Is China really the easier target though? I'm not sure how much shit they export to Europe but if they decided to get into a full on embargo slapfight with the US we would probably be in for a couple more decades of bullshit on top of what we're already dealing with. I also don't see them actually attacking Taiwan either, there's a tremendous amount of risk involved there and if they fuck it up in any way there's probably gonna be a nuclear Mexican stand off hotter than that shit with Cuba.
>>39284 >>39285 >>39290 Well Taiwan is different from Ukraine in that Russia can construct a legitimate argument around about why they have the right to take/retake portions of Ukraine where as Taiwan has NEVER been apart of the PRC and China's entire justification is "We want it." Also Taiwan is much more important to the west than Ukraine. Wheat is important but computer chips are several orders of magnitude more important.
>>39291 European protectionism makes them reliant on black slave labor and Slav slave labor instead of yellow slave labor.
>>39292 "More important" is probably the wrong word choice, anon. Wheat is ultimately more important, but it's a commodity so it's harder to measure impacts. microchips are an immediate issue that directly affect the military stability of other countries.

>>39294 Yeah after I posted that I realized that I could word it better. Of course wheat is more important than electronics in the grand scheme of things. The thing is though that wheat isn't particularly novel and can be grown in a lot of places so if Ukraine's fields were closed to the West, that could be made up elsewhere. Of course realistically it wouldn't likely be closed to western import the price would just go up. Taiwan's chip factories on the other hand are basically irreplaceable artifacts and if they were blocked for western export or God forbid destroyed in the fighting, then it would completely fuck over the electronics economy. It might send the world back to the 70s-80s in terms of new electronics. That's another thing it's a lot harder to permanently fuck up a wheat field beyond repair than it is a chip factory. Of course Russia and Ukraine are currently fighting over yet another nuclear reactor so who the hell knows how that will turn out.

Taiwan wants to reduce reliance on mainland China for rare earth minerals. It won’t be easy >building block for consumer electronics – because the world’s second largest economy has an outsize share of global reserves and advanced mining, experts say. >The Taiwanese government has for the past six years urged businesses to reshore production from the mainland or consider alternative bases like Southeast Asia. >It also wants companies to reduce reliance on Chinese rare earth minerals, said Lo Chih-cheng, a legislator from Taiwan’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party. >Researchers on the island, where electronics manufacturing is a bedrock of the US$765 billion economy, are looking into ways to find alternative sources, according to Taiwanese media. >They’ve been trying to diversify, both the government and private sector, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve been successful,” Lo said. Taiwan’s deep-seated economic ties with mainland China have been thrust into the spotlight in recent days after Beijing held military exercises encircling the island in response to a visit to Taipei by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. >Though Taiwanese firms have reason to quit the mainland, cutting imports of rare earths will be an uphill battle because Beijing command’s the world’s largest reserves and has established an advanced processing system, analysts said. >“It is going to be very difficult for Taiwan to reduce its rare earth import dependency on China,” said Amitendu Palit, senior research fellow at the Institute of South Asian Studies with National University of Singapore. “China’s near monopoly in global rare earths production ensures that Taiwan’s manufacturing sector continues to depend on China as the biggest source.” >Only China has the rare earth minerals neodymium, praseodymium, terbium and dysprosium that are used to make miniaturised permanent magnets for electronics, said Jack Lifton, executive chairman of the Critical Minerals Institute in Toronto. >Taiwanese producers of PCs and phones need those magnets for their products, he said. >Up until recently, other countries have avoided mining rare earths on fear of polluting waterways, generating radioactivity and damaging the land, experts said. >Taiwan has crucial minerals but does not want the pollution that mines would cause, said Darson Chiu, a research fellow with the Taiwan Institute of Economic Research under the Department of International Affairs. While Taiwan looks for new sources of rare earths, mining the minerals in China is becoming more accessible. >Yang Wang, a senior research analyst at Counterpoint Research, said China’s industry had an economy of scale, high volume production and “an ecosystem of players up and down the value chain”, with 85 per cent of rare earth minerals concentrated in one part of Inner Mongolia and the rest in Guangdong, Hunan and Jiangxi and Guangxi. >“All the different types of rare earths are available at these sites and the reserves are of top quality,” Wang said. “A legacy of lax environmental standards [is] helping the industry to grow.” >China has introduced “more complete” regulations on mining and environmental protection since last year, said Lin Boqiang, head of the China Institute for Studies in Energy Policy at Xiamen University. >“The downstream processing of rare earths in China has been progressing rapidly in recent years, and the value of rare earth products is much higher than in the previous two years, which is a relatively big change,” Lin said. >He said eventually there would be “short supply” globally due to the rise of solar energy equipment, electric vehicles and other new technologies. >“In short, whichever country owns more rare earths products, semi-finished or finished, becomes very important,” Lin said. >Mainland officials have not cut Taiwan off from its rare earth supplies despite imposing other economic sanctions on the island over the Pelosi visit. Beijing sees US influence in Taiwan as a threat to its goal of reunification. >Most countries, including the US, do not recognise Taiwan as an independent state, but Washington opposes any attempt to take the island by force. >China needs semiconductors made in Taiwan, Palit said, “so it is not expected to sanction rare earth exports”. >Sanctions on rare earth materials would “hurt both sides”, said the Taiwanese legislator, Lo the Taiwanese legislator said. >Semiconductor manufacturing depends on rare earth metals that are made mostly in the mainland. But China might not hold its edge forever, according to analysts. >The volume of rare earths available for export from China has decreased due to demand from the country’s growing tech industries, Wang said. Though he added this has allowed it to take back pricing power from importing parties abroad. >Other countries have started mining too, despite earlier environmental concerns. >“So it is not easy to say how long China’s current control in rare earths can last,” Lin said. >Taiwanese companies have been investing in overseas mining assets for some years, said Alfredo Montufar-Helu, director of insights for Asia at The Conference Board research association. >“While these investments are only a small proportion of Taiwan’s total outward investment, they are actually more diversified and not as reliant on China,” Montufar-Helu said. Data from the Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs’ Investment Commission shows that from 2000 to 2021, outward investment in mining and quarrying totalled US$2.49 billion and that US$256.34 million of that was invested in mainland China. https://www.scmp.com/economy/article/3188705/taiwan-wants-reduce-reliance-mainland-china-rare-earth-minerals-it-wont-be https://archive.ph/ABMed

>>39287 8/16/22 Part 1 Thanks to horrible governmental policy, debt insolvency, systemic corruption, economic sabotage, soaring fertilizer prices, insane geo-engineering warfare against populations and the war in Ukraine, global food supplies have been getting plundered. So we really needed a banner year for agricultural production in both the United States and Europe in 2022 and that is not happening. In fact, unprecedented 'drought' is absolutely devastating crops all over the northern hemisphere. In 2023, there simply is not going to be enough food for everyone: https://brandnewtube.com/watch/the-dimming-full-length-climate-engineering-documentary_nlIdJ2BPCMKEm57.html The WEF Plan To Starve A Billion Human Beings To Death: https://tapnewswire.com/2022/08/wef-will-starve-a-billion-human-beings-to-death/ With real physical gold and silver at highest demand in decades, the US Mint has halted all production: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8_u0Vj0V-Q Russia and Turkey reach deal to ditch dollar in trade: http://greeknewsondemand.com/2022/08/15/russia-and-turkey-reach-deal-to-ditch-dollar-in-trade/ Top World Economic Forum adviser and criminal despot, Yuval Noah Harari, has declared in a recent interview that the “vast majority” of the world’s 7.5 billion people are simply no longer needed due to technological advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning and bioengineering. In one sentence, Harari validated what “conspiracy theorists” have been saying for years, that globalist power elites want to rid the world of people deemed “useless” in their eyes.

After prolonged positional battles on the outskirts of the town, Russian servicemen managed to achieve some successes in their offensive during the last week. As a result, the Armed Forces of Ukraine were forced to retreat from their positions in the area: https://southfront.org/russian-military-claimed-control-of-udy-in-kharkiv-region/ The Russian military has killed dozens of mercenaries in Ukraine in high-precision strikes, the Defense Ministry claimed on Monday. It said the Russian Air Force had hit a mercenary deployment point in Kharkov Region. “More than 100 militants from Poland as well as Germany were killed, with more than 50 injured,” the statement read: https://www.rt.com/russia/560862-russia-ukraine-mercenaries-killed/ Russian and proxy troops in Ukraine are likely operating in roughly six groups of forces oriented on Kharkiv City and northeastern Kharkiv Oblast; along the Izyum-Slovyansk line; the Siversk-Lysychansk area; Bakhmut; the Avdiivka-Donetsk City area; and Southern Ukraine. The Kharkiv City and Siversk-Lysychansk groups are likely built around cores drawn from the Western and Central Military Districts respectively. The Izyum-Slovyansk axis is increasingly manned by recently formed volunteer battalions that likely have very low combat power. Wagner Group private military company (PMC) soldiers are in the lead around Bakhmut, while forces drawn from the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) predominate in the Avdiivka-Donetsk City area. Troops from the Southern Military District (SMD) likely formed the original core of forces in Kherson and Zaporizhzhia Oblasts but have been reinforced with troops of the Eastern Military District, Airborne Forces, and Rosgvardia. None of these groupings is homogeneous — elements of various military districts, proxy forces, volunteer units, and other formations are scattered throughout the theater. These dispositions suggest that Moscow is prioritizing the advance around Bakhmut and, possibly, toward Siversk with its Russian forces while seeking to draw on the enthusiasm of DNR forces to seize ground they have failed to take since 2014 on the Avdiivka axis. The high concentration of volunteer battalions around Izyum and Slovyansk suggests that that area is not a focus of Russian attention and may be vulnerable to Ukrainian counterattacks: https://www.understandingwar.org/backgrounder/russian-offensive-campaign-assessment-august-14

Only 23 percent of American youth are qualified to serve without waiver - noting obesity, drug addiction, medical, and behavioral health are the top disqualifiers for service. In the past the US Army targeted a specific demographic of people based on their values, and these recruits were patriots and loved America. Today the US Army happily encourages mandated vaccines, backs transgender subversion of the youth and speaks out in opposition to the Supreme Court of the United States — all of which is very unpatriotic. We now have a Department of Defense that has taken various political positions that are very much opposed to the heart of America and traditional military protocol. Much of America is missing the fact that the US Army is intentionally kicking people out in a precarious way that it knows is unnecessary because the data shows that it’s unnecessary. Military leadership needs to take action for the good of the America people and put an end to this sad state of affairs: https://www.theepochtimes.com/woke-military-policies-to-blame-for-recruitment-crisis-servicemembers-say_4664277.html FLASHBACK! West Point graduates sign letter challenging corrupt leadership of US military academy: https://justthenews.com/government/security/west-point-graduates-sign-letter-challenging-leadership-military-academy ▲ MY COMMENT: Easy problem to fix as talked about before but they won't listen and they'll continue to have problems until they get rid of their rabid leftist "woke" propaganda, remove the clot shot mandates and stop the endless wars. Until then no one in their right mind is joining that kind of subverted corrupted military or putting their lives at risk to maintain it. Trust the corrupt run out of luck! Ukraine has the right to use weapons provided by Western partners to protect its territorial integrity including in Crimea, according to the leaders of Germany and Sweden at a joint press conference in Stockholm on August 16. “The unity shown by European countries in response to this war has been important and impressive. We very quickly decided on sanctions against Russia, unprecedented in their scope and size,” said Andersson. “Both our countries and other European nations made historic decisions, such as electing to send military support to Ukraine and bolstering our own defenses,” added Sweden’s top politician: https://www.kyivpost.com/russias-war/ukraine-has-the-right-to-use-weapons-to-retake-crimea-leaders-of-germany-sweden.html Russian President Putin addressing the Tenth Moscow Conference on International Security: “Western globalist elites are provoking chaos by rekindling old and inciting new conflicts, implementing a policy of so-called containment, while in fact undermining any alternative, sovereign paths of development. Thus, they are desperately trying to preserve the hegemony and power that are slipping out of their grasp, trying to keep countries and peoples in the grip of a neo-colonial order. Any means are used. The United States and its vassals rudely interfere in the internal affairs of sovereign states by organizing provocations, coup d'état and civil wars. Threats, blackmail and pressure are resorted to in a bid to force independent states to submit to their will.” https://sputniknews.com/20220816/putin-collective-west-purposely-destroying-european-security-system-nato-moving-east-1099639271.html Putin accuses the US of trying to prolong war in Ukraine, claims he is trying to prevent govt-genocide of people of Donbass: https://www.rt.com/russia/560918-putin-ukraine-us-conflict/

This after video emerged online showing a series of explosions after a fire engulfed a munitions depot there: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/new-arms-depot-blast-crimea-act-sabotage-kremlin-admits Explosions at key Russian positions in occupied Crimea on Tuesday were "likely part of a coherent Ukrainian counteroffensive to regain control of the west bank of the Dnipro River," according to the US think-tank the Institute for the Study of War (ISW). Meanwhile, British defence intelligence said that "Russian commanders will highly likely be increasingly concerned with the apparent deterioration in security across Crimea, which functions as a rear base area for the occupation". Detonations at an ammunition depot near Dzhankoi were continuing on Wednesday following the previous day's explosions and fires that Russia acknowledged were an act of sabotage: https://www.euronews.com/2022/08/17/ukraine-war-likely-kyiv-counterattack-in-crimea-kerch-bridge-threat-zaporizhzhia-condition Russian military set up checkpoints to the Kerch bridge after the explosions in Crimea: https://www.pravda.com.ua/eng/news/2022/08/17/7363694/ French Mercenaries Under Fire On Ukrainian Front Lines: https://s1.cdnstatic.space/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/french_Ukraine.mp4 The Armed Forces of Ukraine shelled the town of Popasnaya which came under control of the Donetsk People’s Republic.

It would be similar to the US government allowing Canada and Mexico to make economic and political decisions for the US which would be disastrous and outright treasonous. But that is literally how most of Europe operates now days, they are NOT sovereign democratic nations under the EU. Power electricity is being sold on the exchange for prices that are 10 times higher than before the Covid-19 crisis. If this continues, the amount of 25 korunas (€1) per kilowatt-hour may appear on household bills, meaning five times what the Czechs used to pay. But you cannot attribute the rise in electricity prices solely to Putin or the sheiks.

According to unconfirmed reports, the facility hosted Ukrainian servicemen and foreign mercenaries, hundreds of whom were reportedly killed: https://southfront.org/russian-missiles-hit-ukrainian-military-base-in-zatoka-odessa-region/ Ukrainian government officials are teasing the likelihood of more strikes and ‘sabotage operations’ inside Russian controlled Crimea, after having cheered on at least two recent large explosions at military sites. Kiev officials, including President Volodymyr Zelensky himself, are reportedly warning that all civilians should “stay away from potential targets” in Crimea: https://southfront.org/zelensky-warns-civilians-must-stay-away-from-targets-in-crimea-signaling-more-attacks/ According to Channel 24 and independent sources, Crimean Prime Minister Aksyonov and Parliament Speaker Konstantinov left the Crimean peninsula. According to Ukrainian intelligence, they received data not only on the organization of the escape, but also on the place of stay of the Gauleiters. "Aksyonov's subordinates carried out the disposal of documents at night. The families of "Crimean politicians" are already on the territory of mainland Russia in Rostovoye. There is no talk of returning to Crimea yet," the source said: https://news.dialog.ua/257283_1660766334 The Ukrainian military in southern Ukraine destroyed Russia’s Legenda-2 satellite system and an ammunition depot in Blahodatne: https://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-ato/3553182-ukrainian-forces-destroy-russias-legenda2-and-antitank-complex.html Russia's Defence Ministry said on Thursday that three MiG-31E warplanes equipped with Kinzhal hypersonic missiles have been relocated to its Kaliningrad region: https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/russia-says-3-mig-warplanes-with-hypersonic-missiles-moved-kaliningrad-region-2022-08-18/ Russian military leadership is likely increasingly losing confidence in the security of Crimea following recent Ukrainian strikes on Russian military objects in Crimea. Russian sources reported on August 17 that Vice Admiral Viktor Sokolov had replaced Admiral Igor Osipov as the commander of the Crimean-based Black Sea Fleet (BSF). The Russian information space, however, was evidently eager to maintain a high level of secrecy regarding Sokolov’s appointment due to the claimed threat of “terrorist danger” in Sevastopol. Recent Ukrainian strikes (associated with Ukrainian partisans and Ukrainian Armed Forces) on Russian military assets in Crimea, including the headquarters of the BSF in Sevastopol, have likely placed Russian forces on high alert and led to the restructuring of force composition, logistics, and leadership of the Russian grouping in Crimea in order to mitigate the impact of further strikes: https://www.understandingwar.org/backgrounder/russian-offensive-campaign-assessment-august-17
8/19/22 Part 1 The West’s key achievements in confronting Russia—swiftly rallying in solidarity with Ukraine, hitting Moscow with crushing sanctions and supplying Kyiv with billions in armaments—may be at risk. Even as politicians reaffirm Western unity and pundits hail the impact of weapons sent to Ukraine, economic woes are poised to fracture that solidarity where it matters most—in the European Union. Paradoxically, the rising costs of war appear less sustainable for wealthy, democratic EU countries than they do for poor, isolated Russia. The bill is coming due, and Europeans are shocked at the privations they face to pay it: soaring energy costs, rationing, reduced aid for the poor, and looming recession. Disagreement over Ukraine aid triggered the recent collapse of Italy’s ruling coalition, a bad omen for other centrist European governments: https://nationalinterest.org/feature/western-unity-ukraine-fragile-and-russia-knows-it-204308 ▲ MY COMMENT: Good article BUT I would like to note there are multiple reasons Russia did not collapse after being blocked from the Western SWIFT payment system that this article never bothered mentioning. This is worth mentioning because Western governments do not seem to fully comprehend this. #1 Both Russia and China have been preparing to break away from the US dollar global reserve currency since their "Holy Grail" oil-for-gold trade deal back in 2014, so they had nearly a decade to prepare in advance. #2 Russia never outsourced their manufacturing base or productive industry unlike many Western countries, so Russia has resources and industry to fall back on when things get tough for them. Russia, unlike the West today, also protects their strong agricultural base: they even give food producers lucrative tax cuts and incentives to produce as much food for their population as possible so Russians won't go hungry during an economic crisis! #3 Russia exploited globalism and globalist corruption for sure - but Putin never allowed serious threats to their national sovereignty to manifest (the reason people like (((George Soros))) and his NGOs have been banned from Russia, and the very reason they won't allow certain people into political power knowing full well too much corruption can kill nations as they witnessed during the Soviet Union and it's collapse). Economic preparation with other nations like China, the protection of domestic industry and agriculture, and the ability to determine what kind of corruption needs to be stomped out for national security reasons is why Russia is surviving this crisis.

8/20/22 Western governments are intentionally trying to reduce economic activity. There is no precedent for this. Never before in the history of industrialized nations has any government intentionally tried to lower its economic activity. It has never been done with intent before because within the contraction nations get more poor and people suffer: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/something-looming-geopolitically-and-we-better-start-taking-it-seriously ▲ MY COMMENT: There actually is historical precedent and one example is when Russia in the 1920s fell into communist rule. The Soviet goal was to centralize power and control over the whole economy and do away with any resistance and opposition. They hated decentralization. They hated political opposition. They hated free markets. It was much like being ruled by monopolists where free markets were deliberately and systematically crushed and later outlawed. Self-sufficiency was despised and later deemed criminal. Wealth force re-distributed and consolidated under a tiny "elite" oligarchy and central bankers who propped them up. Very much the same with the British Empire and one of many reasons our American Founding Fathers risked their lives fighting them. Western nations have been hijacked by the same kind of criminal oligarchy. Much like the later days of the USSR, we are starting to see the balkanization and fracturing of vassal states as naturally happens when these extremists push the citizenry too far into demise. The end result being civil unrest, defection and collapse.

Of course there are many that are so addicted to drugs or alcohol that they just sleep wherever they end up passing out.

Some have had the audacity to suggest that after they have vilified, undermined and defunded law enforcement for years, supported prosecutors who refuse to hold criminals accountable for their actions, overseen the decay of our country’s mental health infrastructure, and generally promoted a culture of lawlessness, Smith & Wesson and other firearm manufacturers are somehow responsible for the crime wave that has predictably resulted from these destructive policies, but they are the ones to blame for the surge in violence and lawlessness, and they seek to avoid any responsibility for the crisis of violence they have created by attempting to shift the blame to Smith & Wesson, other firearm manufacturers and law-abiding gun owners. It is no surprise that the cities suffering most from violent crime are the very same cities that have promoted irresponsible, soft-on-crime policies that often treat criminals as victims and victims as criminals. Many of these same cities also maintain the strictest gun laws in the nation: https://citizens.news/647472.html Gazprom will stop all gas flows to Europe via the Nord Stream pipeline from August 31 until September 2, Russia's gas giant Gazprom announced on Friday: https://oilprice.com/Latest-Energy-News/World-News/Gazprom-Will-Halt-Nord-Stream-Gas-Flows-On-Aug-31.html Daughter Of Putin Ally Killed In Car Bombing Outside Moscow: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/daughter-putin-ally-reportedly-killed-assassination-attempt The head of Ukraine’s security service, the SBU, in Kirovograd Region was found dead in his home on Saturday evening, with sources telling local media that it was likely a suicide: https://www.rt.com/news/561241-ukraine-sbu-kirovograd-zelensky/ Several Russian soldiers involved in the military operation in Ukraine have been hospitalized with severe chemical poisoning, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Saturday.

The military shifts responsibility to the FSB, which does not fight sabotage, however, they cannot admit that it is the Armed Forces of Ukraine that strike at the “fortress with the most protected airspace”, which they considered the Crimea to be, they just can’t admit it, the expert noted. According to him, this is the collapse of the military and political image. “This image was built on the fact that Russia has a bunch of missiles with which they will dominate the airspace.

It's basic economics and basic science! If solar and wind energy costs more to produce and that's what you rely on, then electric vehicles will cost more to maintain and charge! The higher your energy municipality bills the more it will cost too! Socialists/Communists will claim they need more subsidy by taxing hard workers to reduce prices, but only making workers even more poor and more no longer able to afford commuting to work anymore! "Going Green" is indeed A DOWNWARD SPIRAL FRAUDULENT SCAM AND THE OLIGARCHY BEHIND IT KNOWS IT!!!! By the way I am saying this as someone who owns solar panels myself and has prepped for off-grid scenarios before!! I know exactly how solar inverters work. I know solar is good for rationing energy but believe me, it's not good for long-term use! Panels don't last forever. 12V batteries (even the deep cycles) don't last forever. Buying L-ion 12V batteries will cost you an arm and a leg so average folks won't buy them: they do last longer but a heavy price to pay!! Rationing solar power for off-grid activity will make it last a lot longer, but not if you have to use it day to day 24/7!! I've been asked if you can power up an electric vehicle using solar inverters (and theoretically YES) ...BUT... that all depends what kind of solar inverters (and their peak wattage) you own and how many 12V batteries and panels you have. The wattage can't go over peak as they have fail-safe circuit breakers built-in, so you would have to prioritize exactly what is being powered in real time and the wattage in use. Average residential solar inverters have 5000W to 6000W peak.

Alexander Dugin also openly praises Stalin, Aleister Crowley, Kabbalah and Freemasonry, and is meanwhile subverting western nationalists in to hating western civilization (which is easy because we're so corrupt.)

8/27/22 Part 1 Governments produce scarcity by shutting off pipelines, shutting down farming operations, taxing productivity and deliberately causing food shortages and inflation. Money printing steals savings from everyone, creating scarcity of the purchasing value of dollars previously earned. Overzealous government regulation shuts down farming and food production, leading to artificial scarcity, food price inflation and global famine.

>>39917 8/27/22 Part 2 JIM STONE COMMENTS: I have been following the Russia situation quite closely for some time, and the only thing that can explain what is going on is that Russia is playing a game, in lock step with the West - Russia is taking orders. The most important data with Putin is that he has gone around everywhere, to all the ceremonies, IS a member of the WEF and that as a result, he's probably role playing. He will do what he is told. So at a time when things should be winding down, he's escalating the conflict in ways which appear to me to be unnecessary. Why? He's probably setting up a false flag. And the grand crowning jewel of "911" would be to blow a 5.8 gigawatt nuke plant to the moon, while weather mod carries the results over Europe. That would give all the kiddies a GREAT reason to abandon homes and FOLLOW ORDERS. FACT: THERE IS TOO MUCH SHIT GOING ON WITH THAT NUKE PLANT. RUSSIA HAD CONTROL, AND THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR IT, UNLESS IT IS WANTED. RUSSIA WENT IN AND TOOK THAT B*TCH, THEY HAD THEIR OWN WORKERS THERE, WTF IS THE PROBLEM???

Some specialize in unique trade skills and crafts. Timber, mining, fishing, sugar, rum, narcotics, cotton, silk, agriculture, conquest, manufacturing, oil, industry, banking, and so on — depending on the century and the region, nations have attained tremendous wealth in myriad ways. Notice that no nation has managed merely to print money and tax its citizens on the path to prosperity. Real wealth cannot simply be conjured from thin air. There must be recognized value in what a nation and its citizens possess. More than any other source for national wealth, however, one towers above the rest: innovation. The ability of the human mind to create something new and valuable provides society with wealth creation. If innovation produces wealth, why aren't all nations wealthy? Because too many nations fail to value innovators or encourage innovation. Without fundamental property rights, strong social institutions, and a dependable legal system, potential inventors have few incentives to build anything new. Humans struggling merely to survive in the world do not waste time, labor or resources on projects that offer no prospect for future reward. Humans working as servants to the state under centrally controlled economies have no incentive to innovate: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/great-reset-blueprint-destroying-freedom-innovation-prosperity California electric company admits it will NEVER be able to charge everybody’s electric vehicles: https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-08-26-california-electric-cant-charge-everybodys-electric-vehicles.html Start Reading Labels!

It involves falsehoods, it involves lies and changing morality on sexuality. It involves everything. Two thousand years ago, this is all they had. It was possessed back then. So, when Jesus sent the Gospel into the pagan world, it was a clash of spirits and principalities of gods. There is the One True God, and then there are the false gods. The Bible says we do not war against flesh and blood. We are not against people. We war against principalities. So, when the gospel comes in, there is this huge war. The pagans are trying to kill the Christians or you worship our gods. That’s why they were trying to kill them because Christians would not worship the gods. It was a war of the gods, but at the end of the day, the Gospel prevailed and the gods departed. The temples were emptied out. The shrines were abandoned. The gods of the ancient world were gone, but we are not just talking about gods, there are spirits behind them—demonic spirits. They don’t end, they stay there. So, the question is what would happen if the gods or the evil spirits returned to America and returned to the world? The fact is they have returned... If western civilization was possessed by the evil spirits, the Gospel got rid of them. It was the greatest exorcism in history. What happens if that nation ever turns away from God? If it ever opens the door? These spirits are coming back. These ancient spirits or principalities are going to come back to our culture, to the West and to America, and they are going to come back to repossess it: https://usawatchdog.com/only-way-to-save-america-is-turn-back-to-god-jonathan-cahn/
>>39949 8/28/22 Part 2 Starting all the way back in April, some US defense officials had been expressing concern that Ukraine weapons shipments sent from Washington were entering a big “black hole” once they cross the border into the conflict – given there appeared little to no oversight or accountability in terms of arms and serial number tracking. Ukrainian government officials have taken pains to to try and assure Western allies and international press that they are indeed carefully monitoring the weapons and munitions provided from allies, also to ensure they don’t end up on the black market or in the hands of unauthorized militants or terrorists. But now we have the closest thing thus far to confirmation that indeed there’s a lack of necessary oversight, given on Thursday the Pentagon’s acting Inspector General Sean O’Donnell told Bloomberg that while he believes Ukrainian forces are using up all that they’ve been given by the US, it remains that there’s little “fidelity” as to where the weapons actually end up. This is due in large part, he explained, to the Ukrainians tracking external arms via hand receipts. For this reason he’s looking to trace, test, and audit whether the Ukrainians are properly logging US-supplied military hardware. He says the Pentagon is on “alert” – looking evidence of gaps, missing weapons, and lack of oversight in the system: https://southfront.org/pentagon-ig-doubtful-ukraine-is-tracking-us-supplied-arms-will-conduct-audit/ The video from the front lines shows a suicidal attack of Ukrainian armored group on the positions of the marines of the Pacific Fleet of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. As a result of the attack, several units of Ukrainian armored vehicles and vehicles transporting personnel were destroyed: https://s1.cdnstatic.space/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/att.mp4 Another five Russian artillery systems were destroyed by Ukrainian forces on Saturday, August 27, according to Ukraine’s military update on Russia’s combat losses since February 24.

The texts also mentions the war is killing “young able-bodied” Russian citizens, the Russian economy is suffering, NATO is expanding eastwards and Ukraine is getting new weapons (although Putin called one of the goals of the invasion the “demilitarisation” of the country): https://euroweeklynews.com/2022/09/08/st-petersburg-municipal-deputies-call-for-russias-state-duma-to-accuse-putin-of-treason/ On Tuesday, Ukrainian forces made a sudden and forceful attack in southern Kharkiv oblast near the town of Balakliya. By all accounts, this attack caught Russia by complete surprise. Ukraine apparently managed to move enough force into the area that they had an advantage in both men and armor. Also they reportedly used NATO-style combined arms tactics, with armor, infantry, artillery, and air support all working in concert. When a core of resistance prevented Ukraine from immediately capturing Balakliya, they didn’t stop. They took Bairak to the south. They took Vrubivka to the north. They completely encircled Balakliya and they just kept going. Both Twitter and Telegram are choked with images of captured Russian soldiers, Ukrainian forces shooting down a Russian jet, and Russian equipment either destroyed or captured. Even prepared positions were rapidly overrun as what had been a World War I-style artillery battle turned into modern warfare: https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2022/9/7/2121296/-Ukraine-update-A-huge-day-as-Ukraine-advances-in-every-area Russia Confirms Encirclement Of Samara And Bashkir SOBR In Balakleya: https://charter97.org/en/news/2022/9/7/514591/ Ukrainian fighters showed the downing of a Russian Ka-52 attack helicopter. It was “grounded” this morning in the Kherson region: https://charter97.org/en/news/2022/9/7/514598/ On September 7, units of the DPR People’s Militia supported by Russian forces finished the mop up operations on the western outskirts of the town of Peski.

Elizabeth II has died. What now?
>>40549 did she ever tweet that assad must go?
>>40549 also i guess i'll buy a new silver pound coin
but like the original reason i was going to make post in here was to say that isn't such a funny name jim stone is? like if i ever met him i would say "you're a real gemstone jim stone"
>>40549 Good. I'm curious how anti-Russia the Brits can remain without their queen? Had she sworn in the new PM yet?
>>40549 Impossible, did she miss drinking anglo boy's blood with the kikes?
This actually explains why Boris didn't want elections "for another 3 or 4 months." >>40560 Apparently the doctors cut her off from her nightly shot of liquor about two years ago.
>>40569 >Apparently the doctors cut her off from her nightly shot of liquor about two years ago. My grandma died a couple of years after she was denied her wine cup before bed, shit must have some explanation
>>40594 I think I remember reading somewhere that wine is actually good for you when you get older, I think red wine in particular. I think there is actually something to that anon
>>40558 >Had she sworn in the new PM yet? Yes, two days ago. >Good. I'm curious how anti-Russia the Brits can remain without their queen? You would be surprised. Elizabeth hated Federal Russia because she had a (weak) claim on the Russian monarchy and had wanted them to return to monarchy post-USSR. The same reason she had disdain for Germans, ironically. Charles hates Russia just because he hates Russia, he has no particular reason, by his own admission they are his political punching bag.
>>40549 Unfortunate. She was left over from a Britain that was still actually British. Her death is the end of an era, and a tie to that past gone. And most people liked Elizabeth, but nobody particularly likes Charles; something like 45% of the population would outright prefer him to abdicate in favour of Prince William. Combine that with current movements about "confronting history", I expect to see a significant uptick in whining about the British monarchy's history of colonialism and whatnot, as people feel more free to do so with the friendly face gone.

>>40549 Charles is crowned, urban-types complain that her death isn't a signal for transition to a republic, and life goes on. Charles will be an unpopular king, but I doubt that he'll abdicate. There might be some posturing from the Irish and the other kingdoms, but nothing major will happen for a little while. I wonder if some of the Commonwealth will try to break off or ask for more gibs. >>40602 Her rule saw the downfall of the UK as a major power. She mostly stayed out of politics unless there was a scandal. Charles is a freak and won't be any better. It doesn't help that his regnal name is Charles III. Charles I was beheaded during the revolution, and Charles II was a coward tyrant adulterer, among other things.
>>40606 >Charles II was a coward tyrant adulterer, among other things. And was admired by the English public for that.
>>40569 >Apparently the doctors cut her off from her nightly shot of liquor about two years ago. I drink 16oz+ of whiskey every other night and I don't need no doctor to tell me what I can or cannot drink and I'm still just fine. Medical institutions are a racket.
>>40558 They substituted "anti-Russia" with their own 'MAGA let's allow fracking again forget about our climate change fear mongering', goyyyim.
>>40599 >Elizabeth hated Federal Russia because she had a (weak) claim on the Russian monarchy and had wanted them to return to monarchy post-USSR. The same reason she had disdain for Germans, ironically. The House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha aka Windsor under Elizabeth couldn't inherit either claim though. Both the German and Russian thrones were under male priority succession: Agnatic Primogeniture and Semi-Salic, respectively. This mean women were barred entirely from inheritance of the German throne and only considered for inheritance of the Russian throne if all legitimate male claimants were extinct. This meant Victoria lost the claim to the throne of Hanover upon the death of William IV in 1830, for example. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pauline_Laws https://freiherrvonquast.wordpress.com/2017/02/05/line-of-succession-to-the-former-throne-of-germany/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Hanover#Monarchs_of_Great_Britain,_Ireland,_and_Hanover It sounds like a pseud theory by American "experts" that don't understand succession law.
>>40612 Wrong sort of claim, should have specified and used unambiguous terms on the 'claim on the monarchy' part. Sorry. I wasn't meaning claims on the thrones, but claims on lands or territory. Supposedly, England through Elizabeth still officially had inherited royal claims on the Ukraine, but could not push said claims without the Russian state being a monarchy (specifically of House Romanov) due to it being a royal issue instead of a state issue. And the person who explained this to me was a Russian, not an American, but I doubt they were any better qualified to speak on it.

Diana's story is somewhat tragic, but Charles' own story of having to give up the love of his life for a political marriage to Diana only to finally be allowed to love the woman of his youth after admitting to a scandal with her while everyone hated her for not being Diana was an equally tragic story. Even his own mother refused to recognize his true marriage to the woman he loved.

It seems to me they think they can create endless debts and threats but real economic production can be cast aside and ignored, as if mining, refining, processing, smelting, manufacturing, etc (all the physical labor that gets hands dirty) somehow took back seat to economic relevance. And guess what? That's dangerously delusional! They can create fiat debt carte-blanch and tax hard workers all they want, but in the end hard work is what makes the wheels of the system still turn! If something bad happens to the supply chain industry, then something bad happens to the nation as a whole! This is why Keynesian economic ideology has, and always will, fail!!

They managed to break through Russian defences in several areas on the front lines and develop their bridgehead. On the evening of September 8, President Zelensky claimed Ukrainian control of the town of Balakleya, which became the main target of the first phase of the Ukrainian offensive: https://southfront.org/ukrainian-forces-develop-decisive-offensive-in-eastern-ukraine/ Dmitry Peskov, the press-secretary of the President of Russia, refused to comment on the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the occupied territories of Ukraine: https://www.pravda.com.ua/eng/news/2022/09/9/7366762/ Ukrainian successes on the Kharkiv City-Izyum line are creating fissures within the Russian information space and eroding confidence in Russian command to a degree not seen since a failed Russian river crossing in mid-May. Ukrainian military officials announced that Ukrainian forces advanced 50km deep into Russian defensive positions north of Izyum on September 8, but the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) notably did not issue any statement regarding Ukrainian advances in Kharkiv Oblast. Ukrainian successes and the Russian MoD’s silence prompted many Russian milbloggers to criticize and debate Russian failures to retain control over the city of Balakliya, approximately 44km northwest of Izyum. Some milbloggers claimed that Russian forces fully or partially withdrew from Balakliya in good order, while others complained that Ukrainian forces beat Russian forces out of the settlement. Others noted that Rosgvardia units operating in the area did not coordinate their defenses or have sufficient artillery capabilities to prevent Ukrainian counterattacks in the region. Milbloggers warned about an impending Ukrainian counteroffensive northwest of Izyum for days prior to Ukrainian advances, and some milbloggers noted that Russian command failed to prepare for “obvious and predictable” Ukrainian counteroffensives: https://www.understandingwar.org/backgrounder/russian-offensive-campaign-assessment-september-8

What is a realistic opinion on the current Russo/Ukie war right now?
>>40733 The fuck kind of question is that? "Realistic" based on what? Realistic about what? Casualties? Equipment? Recent changes in the front? Do you mean realistic as in unbiased? because good fucking luck even the people who try to remain as neutral as possible keep being bamboozled by how retarded this conflict has been and how thoroughly pervasive the propaganda from both sides is. You'll only get vague speculation because no one knows what the hell is going through Putin's head and Zelensky is about as predictable as any other kike comedian as in the only sure thing about him is he hates goyim.
>>40752 Who is really getting fucked more? Who is going to win? Does the recent Ukrainian push in Kharkov mean anything?
>>40628 >All these "leaders" we have in the West know next to nothing about economics and they have made it perfectly clear! All these retarded "leaders" in the West are Leftist. You act like economic troubles aren't a beloved tool to keep political control. This whole shithow was created to throw a wrench into the growing economic tries between the EU and Russia, which were to the detriment to the economy of the USA and Anglo-American world.
>>40733 Russians are incompetent retards.
>>40733 Russians suck at war LARPing as the WWII Soviet Union. And if Stalin was still alive he would've shot Putin and all of his cabinet for demoralizing the military by optics cucking to make trade deals with third world garbage dumps instead of killing the enemy. Kadyrov (hopefully literally) slapping some sense into the Russian MoD is Russia's first and last second chance.
>>40772 I agree that Putin has been way, way too nice. He should have went Total War Goebbels style from the get go and nuked Kiev from day one.
>>40774 So much for Slavic brotherhood.
>>40753 >Who is really getting fucked more? Economically Russia still seems to be doing fine, if they're telling the truth about most of their losses being local militia then they're doing ok. Ukraine just scored a huge morale victory and they have gotten almost all the money and equipment they demanded so far so Russians might be about to go from "ok" to "in actual danger of being pushed way the fuck back". >Who is going to win? Literally no one can tell you that yet, Ukraine has suffered some pretty humiliating and costly defeats but the past couple days have shown the Russians were retarded enough to stand with their feet apart staring at the sky without even considering Ukraine might be aiming a boot right at their dick. >Does the recent Ukrainian push in Kharkov mean anything? Gaining that much ground means a lot, if they can hold it then it's a new front line jutting directly into Russian forces which the Ukrainians can then proceed to launch attacks from and keep pushing. This is assuming Russia doesn't send in more troops and equipment for a counterattack and somehow encircle the Ukrainian forces before they can really establish themselves. Which doesn't really look like a possibility considering how badly Russia fucked up, or at least it's probably not happening soon enough.
>>40775 >Slavic brotherhood Slavs hate each other almost as much as Africans, the "no more brother wars stoppit like come on guise joos want you to hate eahc other :^(" crowd are the biggest most historically shortsighted and ignorant gaggle of shit eating retards on the planet.

>>40764 >All these retarded "leaders" in the West are Leftist. You act like economic troubles aren't a beloved tool to keep political control. They are all in on this "Great Reset" agenda. The war is just another crisis for them to exploit. Think of the outcomes for all of us involved: Ukraine gets destabilized by war, Russia gets themselves involved in a long drawn-out war which will weaken their military over time and waste resources for them, European economies will collapse into the third world and financially enslave the citizenry turning them into desperate whores, the United States will lose it's global reserve currency status and be easier to completely takeover and subjugate in the near future.... it's all a win-win crisis for the elites to put the final nail in our coffin as they pivot toward a "multi-polar" new world order. Their model for the West is totalitarian China: complete with a social credit score system, mass censorship, tyrannical one-party rule, political purges/disarmament, resource rationing, an end of the commuting lifestyle Americans have enjoyed for over 100 years, "wealth redistribution" (read: theft of civilian private property), etc. I'm seriously considering the only way to fight this is to lock and load and be ready for the day they come our way. https://mises.org/wire/five-stages-totalitarianism

The breakup of the Soviet Union in early 1991 resulted in significant political and socio-economic changes for both the independent Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. During border delineation some difficulties were encountered because the borders between the member republics drawn in Soviet times had a symbolic character. Kyrgyz and Tajik communities had common property rights to access and use natural resources under the system of land tenure based on property rights backed up by Soviet state authorities. Today, and as a result of vague border lines, disputes over border demarcation are the main issue between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. The disputes are causing multiple conflicts over access and use of natural resources such as water for irrigation purposes and pasture grounds for grazing animals. https://www.cairn.info/revue-l-europe-en-formation-2018-1-page-121.htm tldr shitty commie era borders

>>40733 By realistic do you mean opinions to have publicly or outcomes? Before America (or Norway) bombed the Nordstream pipelines I would have said "Erdogan brokering an agreement between Ukraine and Russia where Russia gives some kind of freedom of travel for Ukrainians through Mariupol and Kherson in exchange for essentially all of Russia's demands," but after the Americans launched that attack on the Nordstream pipeline Russia has pretty much no reason to back down now unless Germany gets on their knees and begs to pay for it. I expect the new Baltic pipeline to be bombed in a similar fashion in retaliation before this conflict is over. Long-term? Don't know. If neither side will back down Russia is going to eventually take the entire Black Sea and most of the Eastern half of Ukraine whether that's a few months from now or around the next Ukrainian elections. Unless someone else launches them first or Russia proper is threatened, Russia is never going to deploy Reaction Weaponry while Putin is in charge of things. Why would any of the vassal states complain anyways? They basically get autonomy under the Federation so long as they play their part. The reason Russia is inducting all these regions into Russia is because it would be a huge headache to make them all independent breakaway regions while the major players in the Middle East/Asia won't care if they are absorbed into Russia since all that might change is the primary language of the grain contract they're signing. If you mean opinions on other countries? Dunno. The two prominent theories are either... A) The Global Elites are pushing us all towards a Great Reset while promoting sterilization of poor people. B) Milkshake theory is in effect and rich people don't care about inflation because USD is the primary currency and their assets are still holding relative value or even better value to everyone else even though standards are declining everywhere and why you should hold some cash so long as USD is valid. At the end of the day what happens to you is dependent on your country's situation in relation to Russia and Ukraine. Are you an African country, China, or Germany? Then you're royally fucked. Are you a Brit, Norwegian, or American? Consider retraining into a field related to the oil and gas industry or arms industry.

And that's assuming everything goes perfectly, so far everything that has been spouted out to me about this shit is very generalized and all the finer details of the world basically rely on godlike omniscience to even vaguely plan for. Hell language alone could fuck such a plan up, even after you've killed most of the planet there are going to be dozens of languages and dialects to contend with and there's always the tribal bullshit that comes along with any of that, which can pretty easily shit all over a much more powerful occupier as we've all seen multiple times from Vietnam and Afghanistan in the past century.

>>41660 There you go posting more generalized bullshit as if the world isn't a chaotic mess even at the most peaceful of times. I think great reset is like a borderline sexual fantasy for people like you, jerking yourself off over the thought of being dominated by some ultra powerful godlike entity and completely disregarding everything that conflicts with your surface level worldview because that isn't boner inducing.
>>41663 I don't assume that at all what the hell. That's part of why I think the theory is fucking stupid, the elites of the world aren't some massive collection of geniuses, it's a variety of rich cunts with an equally varying level of intelligence. Some of these people are basically just richer trust fund kiddies complete with the retarded delusions that come with that.
>>41660 Oh also why wouldn't "big chungus" just usurp the power and give himself all the women and meals? Even your sarcastic jabs are barely surface level.

>>41645 >CRASHED NUCLEAR BOMBER This is fine.
>>41677 Well you are welcome to have that opinion as Leftist Swine, but when you are done smelling your own farts, the reality is that anyone paying attention knows its deliberate. While the saying "don't contribute to malice what can be attributed to stupidity" is certainly true, it's also true that governments have been trying to bring up their ESG scores by cutting back on the primary means of growth (energy, industry, agriculture). A global food shortage is in the works yet the Dutch government, knowing this, cuts back agricultural production. There's a looming fuel shortage and the Biden administration cuts back drilling. It's intentional. When you have groups of billionaires who have been talking about doing what's happening right now for 30-40 years and then mysteriously they start following through on what they have been saying they will do that entire time as evidenced by Sri Lanka, Germany, America, etc. then it's hard to call it a conspiracy. The liberal economic order also known as the "new world order" or "The Great Reset" exists and people like Klaus Schwab, Soros, and Kissinger are enacting it. A global cabal isn't twirling their evil moustaches and thinking about how they can oppress people, but they are certainly acting in conjunction with each other through meetings like G7, ASEAN, and the WEF and as individual actors they are pushing it because it benefits them or their philosophical ideals. Continue to "jerk yourself off" in your own (self-proclaimed) intellectual superiority though.
>>41679 Probably the same reason that DC cop was proud to trample on other's rights during the 1/6 protest. People are free-thinking but they are also rationally irrational and will do irrational things for rewards if they think it's a good deal. Why WOULD "Big Chungus" NOT do what millions of people around the world do every day (follow like lambs) for whatever monetary, intellectual, or philosophical reasons he .ay have?

>>41711 Nope not going to humor your gay little head games Swede. Now go ahead pull more baseless insults out of your ass, I'll give you low effort (you)s until I get bored.
>>41706 I think that they have fairly unified goals as the current rulers of the world. I honestly see something like the Ukraine conflict as one oligarchy at war with another smaller less powerful one. I don't think it is at all farfetched to suggest they have enough organisation to influence events that benefit them all through shared groups like the WEF.
>>41719 Well we'll just have to disagree then, there's no denying they're powerful and manipulating events but I don't think everything always goes their way and I don't believe they're going to remain at the top that long. Also if it's one oligarchy against another that just proves their cooperation isn't perfect and can be torn apart pretty easily by inflated egos, and despite what was said about "big chungus" being too dumb and blindly loyal movie logic anyone who knows anything about PMCs or even just regular security contractors would realize those organizations have their fair share of snakes that can and will fuck over their bosses if it suits them.
>>41736 >Things don't go their way 100% of the time so they can't be in charge Really now? Next are you going to tell me America isn't spiraling towards a civil war because Democrats don't get their way 100% of the time?
The recent developments in Ukraine have gotten me thinking about the following hypothetical scenario: Naturally, the big players will try to de-escalate nuclear tensions in the interest of self-preservation, but could a third party, one that has nothing to lose and all to gain from geopolitical turmoil, destabilize and escalate the situation if say, a dirty bomb were to be detonated within the vicinity of any of the big players, ensuing a blame game of who was either directly responsible via a false flag attack and/or indirectly via covert funding of said third party. Could the aforementioned scenario destabilize the situation beyond control or could it be mitigated diplomatically. If so, how? I would like to hear your input.
Addendum: Yes, I am very much basing this off the precedent of the Black Hand and the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. What I am asking is if this is achievable within then current geopolitical and technological paradigm, given that it has changed substantially in a hundred years.
>>41769 Whats a dirty bomb? My mummy and daddy are in London, would they get killed (hypothetically)?
>>41769 >Naturally, the big players will try to de-escalate nuclear tensions in the interest of self-preservation Why would they do this and where is your evidence they have done this? The opposite is true.
>>41773 counter-sage
>>41763 >>Things don't go their way 100% of the time so they can't be in charge You're really determined to goad me into a spergfest with these retarded misrepresentations of what I'm saying aren't you?
>>41769 >Could the aforementioned scenario destabilize the situation beyond control or could it be mitigated diplomatically. If so, how? North Korea has been doing this for years and they seem to be getting what they want, most of the time. However, Nork leadership is really smart and knows when to hold them and when to fold them. Let's say a country of that kind would do that though: if the country in question is hitting in the vicinity of a big player (either super power or regional power), then the immediate response by the entire world (regardless of alliance) would be to immediately get in and try to "persuade the governing body to reconsider their foreign policy", otherwise known as the Entente occupation of post WWI Germany. I base this off the fact that there's still plenty of Cold War era politicians who feel the implications of it all in most countries, and even if the reckless attitude of one small country towards another super power would theoretically give a big advantage to the other ones, if said blow could potentially in any way be related back to the other super powers then there's a 110% chance of an unfair retaliation against any hostile nation. In other words, think of what happened when
>>41792 *when JFK got assassinated, the Soviet Union immediately performed background checks on all their agents and sent their intel to the US out of fear of a military retaliation.
>>41769 >but could a third party, one that has nothing to lose and all to gain from geopolitical turmoil, destabilize and escalate the situation if say, a dirty bomb were to be detonated within the vicinity of any of the big players It probably wouldn't even have to be a dirty bomb, if a third player started some major shitfest in one of the major players' immediate backyards. As in an actual full on classic invasion of a no no territory not this pussyfooting special military operation garbage, or the false flag bombing or attempted bombing of a gathering of world leaders could really get things moving in that direction. What third party factions we don't even know about are doing is exactly the kind of shit I'm wondering about and for some reason it really bugs Sven's Africanized bootyhole. >>41793 >when JFK got assassinated, the Soviet Union immediately performed background checks on all their agents and sent their intel to the US out of fear of a military retaliation Would that work in today's world though? The current batch of western leaders all seem some variation of hostile to Russia no matter what (WEF niggers). Would a bunch of non-NATO countries be willing or even able to step in and calm such a situation down if Russia denied all involvement and provided proof but the west refused to listen? Would BRICS play any part in this?
>>41792 >>41793 I agree with your assessment regarding a third party state. I should have clarified further. What I had in mind was as stateless organization, say HAMAS just to give an example, which has nothing to lose and everything to gain from the destabilization of the geopolitical status quo in order to expand and consolidate within the power vacuum. >>41794 >What third party factions we don't even know about are doing is exactly the kind of shit I'm wondering about Ditto. >Would that work in today's world though? The current batch of western leaders all seem some variation of hostile to Russia no matter what (WEF niggers). Would a bunch of non-NATO countries be willing or even able to step in and calm such a situation down if Russia denied all involvement and provided proof but the west refused to listen? Would BRICS play any part in this? My opinion regarding this is that in the west's case, despite what the war hawks may want, their corporate overlords will step in to prevent anything that affects their bottom-line. In Russia's case I think the oligarchs grossly underestimated the risk they were taking and they are now going all-in because they've already invested way too much to not see it through to the end and at least make back their losses or die trying. Also, I have a hunch that Putin and/or the military hierarchy have a bit more agency and leeway and can strongarm the oligarchs a bit more than the western political and military castes can. But again, that is merely gut feeling, I have no evidence for this whatsoever. In any case, they can strongarm them into not pulling out and fleeing the country but they depend on their financial support so they have to deliver one way or another. (Total) war is bad for business, even for war profiteers, which is why irregular warfare and proxy wars have become the name of the game. They are cheaper and less of a risk (and obviously less of a strain on the homefront both economically and socially).
>>41798 >and obviously less of a strain on the homefront both economically and socially That may be true on the short term but multiple decades on end of this has clearly done a number on murrica, the current state of this country and its military is making me wonder how much of what is going on is bigwigs involved with the USraeli military industrial complex going for one last money grabbing scheme before bailing to a new host somewhere down the line. At least the generally lackluster response to this whole Ukraine shitfest (outside of obnoxious propaganda of course) and overall embarrassing recruitment numbers for western militaries, particularly the US, combined with some undeniably insane domestic situations in a lot of places leads me to believe the west is getting pretty fatigued with proxy warring.

>>41799 Oh I absolutely agree, I was trying to convey the mindset of these sort of people, that is to say, pigheaded and short-sighted. They do not think of long term consequences because: >going for one last money grabbing scheme before bailing to a new host somewhere down the line You put it pretty well yourself, but in the short term, having proxy wars is less straining than total war with a complete economical restructuring into a command-economy and escalating social tension and possibility of revolt of your lemmings once they notice that they are heading towards a cliff. That is what I meant to convey.
>>41802 Oh okay.
OK, so as we all know on N-day the UK got obliterated by nukes. US, Germany, France, Israel, and for some weird reason Libya got decimated too. ( I never understood why so many were surprised there was no retaliatory strike on Russia, or China, it seems pretty obvious, perhaps it's just hindsight). When oh when will this endless talk talk talk about this new "Federation of Friendship" blah blah "must never happen again...." stop yapping? *yawn*. After all those years of 'excitement' in the early 20s this year is reallllllly dragging.
>>41769 I don't think a dirty bomb would work very well for that purpose because 1. it would have a completely different fallout profile than a real nuclear explosion, and 2. it would not have the tells that a real atomic explosion does (i.e. no double flash, no gamma signature, no neutron flux). It would make it very obvious that it was some terrorists org trying to stir the pot because any real country with actual nukes would use a kiloton or sub kiloton device in the same situation.
