A few of you good travellers of the interwebs pass this way from time to time. Those lost souls will have noticed that I have lapsed into bad habits of late and have posted bugger all. I have been lurking at my usual haunts but keeping my big gob shut.
As you may imagine that is not an easy or usual habit of mine but to butcher an old saying… it is better to stay silent and appear a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
In truth I didn’t have much new to say and I do fear appearing like the character Donkey in Shrek (I can pass for a reasonable likeness of said Shrek) jumping up and down shouting ‘look at me, look at me’.
The Russian breakthrough in the Donbas in May was more a slow rising tide than a dam breaking – damn those cautious Rooski’s. It took 5 weeks for the Popasnaya breach to pay off and they finally cleared the main orc forces all the way out of the Lugansk Oblast/Republic.
The death toll has been huge for the ‘Krainians. Losses of 5500 troops with 2200 dead in the latest pocket. The many, many videos of the slaughter are a bitter testimony to the futile bravery of their ordinary troops to hang in under the relentless bombardment.
I follow a few channels on Telegram among other sources. I think the orc line has broken in the East. All of the territory east of the Siverskyi Donets river is cleared and 2 active bridgeheads have been opened over it – near Kharkov in the north and recently cleared Lysychansk in the East.
Now for most people this is more blah, blah military porn. The Russians are breaking in to open country with no major roads or rivers to slow them down, yeah…... yawn. Then why have they mobilised their industry!!
I did hear rumours that they would mobilise a general military call up in July. Why would they? They are winning on the battlefield and making out like bandits economically. The Global South is queued up to make deals with them for their natural resources as well as their manufactured goods.
The Russian Duma is currently enacting legislation to enforce military procurement orders on Russian manufacturers at set payment rates – they are moving to a war footing industrially. This is the first step before calling up reserves. You need boots and uniforms before bodies to fill them.
I did hear over a month ago that the Chinese lockdowns were nothing to do with the Wu’flu but to cover a retooling of factories for war production. Not good sources but food for thought. It’s hard to get any good info out of China if they don’t want it known.
Another breadcrumb is the recent announcement that the manufacture of 5.56 ammo surplus to military orders has ceased to be offered for sale is the US. This was taken in general discussions that the government was interfering in 2A rights. Maybe there won’t be any surplus to sell!
BCE did mention in one of his articles that certain types of ammo being used in the Middle East were produced many years ago and stock piled but that the US military was burning through a lot of those stocks. How much did they ship to the orcs and how much is left if things get spicy and the war moves west.
These are indications that logistics and materiel as well as troops are being put in to place prior to the opening of wider hostilities.
While that takes place other forms of madness and coercion are being (re)introduced. Dutch farmers are in open rebellion because 30% of their farms are to be shut down as livestock produce too much Nitrogen ???? WTF
The EU zone is being prepared for a winter with no heat. Germany is drawing up plans for the shutdown of industry, rationing of hot water, power interruptions/blackouts etc - all for the greater good of the ‘green transition’.
Masks are making a comeback as cases are on the rise – oh my!! The boosted will need boosting again. Give me a break. That’s not a vaccine, that’s a pay-to-play subscription model. So, muzzled is the new black this season!
I feel there is a current plan to hide the general mobilisation for War behind the usual BS climate change and Covid paranoia – but mobilise they will. The inbred idiots that infest our governing systems here West of the Dnieper river are insane and think that they can pull off the same world war rescue plan for their debt slave market.
Even with the Devil himself driving them on they are too arrogant and incompetent to carry this off. More than 1 in 8 of us are awake and aware of this evil and that is too much for them to prevail. Thankfully many more of us rejected the clot shot and can only watch the unwary succumb to clot complications and cancers.
Russia’s Roscosmos published satellite images and GPS coordinates of Western "decision-making centres supporting Ukrainian nationalists." Have a look Ivan doesn't bluff.
I have a strong feeling that anything Chinesium will soon be Unobtainium. I would also suggest avoiding large cities – especially ‘decision making centres’.
