The Biden regime publicly affirmed their commitment to a “legally-binding” accord in a press release Monday which will give the World Health Organization (WHO) control over U.S. pandemic policies, though work remains in certain areas.
International leaders are meeting this week in Geneva to consider a so-called “Zero Draft” of the agreement. As previously covered by The Gateway Pundit, the zero draft gives the WHO the power to declare and manage a global pandemic emergency.
Once a health emergency is declared every signatory, including the United States, must submit to the authority of the WHO. This includes caving to them on treatments, lockdowns and vaccine mandates along with government surveillance.

The Narrative crafters at the Deep State have made up a bogus story to explain the Nordstream sabotage: Some unknown Ukrainians did it. We don't know who but it wasn't the US...
U.S. journalist Seymour Hersh says "they can't be that stupid" in reaction to NYT's article claiming a "pro-Ukrainian group" carried out the Nord Stream attacks.

The lid on Bakhmut closes
🇷🇺🇺🇦⚡According to incoming information, the Armed Forces of Ukraine began to have big problems with the retreat from Artyomovsk (Bakhmut) towards Chasov Yar.
According to the Military Chronicle, the retreating units of the Ukrainian army massively leave heavy equipment in the city and suburbs due to fears of artillery strikes by PMC Wagner and aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces. The light equipment used for the retreat cannot cope with off-road conditions.
On muddy roads, pickup trucks and cars get stuck and roll over, after which their use becomes impossible.
Infantry units abandon heavy weapons along the roads, leave only with small arms and almost instantly fall under artillery strikes.

American Military Reality from WSJ:
The U.S. Is Not Ready for the Era of ‘Great Power’ Conflict
Since 2018, the military has shifted to focus on China and Russia after decades fighting insurgencies, but it still faces challenges to produce weapons and come up with new ways of waging war.
▪️ Despite an annual defense budget of more than $800 billion, the shift has been delayed by a preoccupation with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the pursuit of big-ticket weapons that didn’t pan out, internal U.S. government debates over budgets and disagreement over the urgency of the threat from Beijing, according to current and former U.S. defense officials and commanders. Continuing concerns in the Mideast, especially about Iran, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine have absorbed attention and resources.
▪️ Corporate consolidation across defense industry has left the Pentagon with fewer arms manufacturers. Shipyards are struggling to produce the subs the needed to counter China’s larger naval fleet. Weapon designers are rushing to catch up with China and Russia in hypersonics.
▪️ The U.S. military’s success in the Mideast came in part from air superiority and a less well-equipped foe. A conflict with China would be very different. The U.S. Asian bases and ports under attack and would need to support its forces over long, vulnerable routes.
▪️ If a conflict with China gave Russia the confidence to take further action in Eastern Europe, the U.S. and its allies would need to fight a two-front war. China and Russia are both nuclear powers.
▪️ The threat is mounting... Decades of ever bigger military budgets, have improved the lethality of China’s air force, missiles and submarines, and better training has created a more modern force from what was once a military of rural recruits.
▪️ China is developing weapons and other capabilities to destroy an opponent’s satellites. The CIA said President Xi Jinping has set 2027 as a deadline for the Chinese military to be ready to carry out a Taiwan invasion.
▪️ A China in control of the South China Sea and Taiwan would hold sway over waters through which trillions of dollars in trade passes each year. It would also command supplies of advanced semiconductors, threaten the security of U.S. allies such as Japan.
▪️ Many of the cutting-edge weapons systems the Pentagon believes will tilt the battlefield in its favor won’t be ready until the 2030s, raising the risk that China may be tempted to act before the U.S. effort bears fruit.
▪️At times, the pace has been slower than Lt. Gen. Hinote would have liked. “As we began to push for change, we lost most of the budget battles,” he said. “There is more sense of urgency now, but we know how far we have to go.”

European Peace Fund
The head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, called on EU members to "urgently" allocate additional assistance to the Kiev regime.
"We must allocate one billion euros from the European Peace Fund (EFF)* for the purchase and supply of 155-mm shells used by Ukrainian artillery," he said.
As a sign of compensation, the politician proposed to provide countries with a preferential rate of reimbursement of transferred ammunition up to 90% if the ammunition is delivered before a certain date. At the same time, Borrell insists on the extreme urgency of supplies, despite the exhausted reserves of the EU member states and the need to use their strategic reserves.
According to experts, such financing should make it possible to provide about 250 thousand 155-mm shells, worth 4,000 euros each, in the shortest possible time.
Italian Deputy Foreign Minister Edmondo Cirielli reacted negatively to Borrell's proposal, saying: "Most EU countries' stocks of weapons and ammunition remained at a critically low level. The use of a strategically inviolable reserve is unacceptable, due to the need to maintain its defense capability. Even if there are reimbursed finances, we will not be able to restore them in such a short period."
*The European Peace Fund (EFF) is an EU instrument with a budget of about 5 billion euros. It is aimed at increasing the capabilities of the armed forces to ensure security in the territories of the EU states. The budget is replenished by contributions from EU member states based on their GDP.
