Illusions and Realities of War
Updated: Nov 8
Israeli military is now running ads for Ukrainians in Ukrainian on Youtube.
In great need of fighters with real combat experience. I’m making 3 times as much. My application for citizenship will be processed soon. Also promises room for family to move there. This young Ukrainian is talking about coming across such an ad himself and joining the IDF. See it here with subtitles: https://t.me/UkraineHumanRightsAbuses/37707
White House: Biden will use his veto against a Republican bill to support Israel only and not Ukraine
Biden was presented with demands, after which the Republicans would support the extension of aid to Ukraine.
Congressmen want the US President and Zelensky to provide Congress with a “victory strategy” that will contain accurate assessments, ultimate goals and criteria for ending the war. The White House should also explain the need for further military support for Ukraine.
Otherwise, Republicans will not vote to provide $12 billion to Ukraine.
The Lebanese Hezbollah movement will enter the Palestinian-Israeli conflict if the Palestinian Hamas movement is in desperate straits, the New York Times reports, citing a Lebanese official.
“Hezbollah fighters have said their red line for intervention is the destruction of Hamas, and they will enter the war if the group is on its last legs,” the publication said. Hezbollah does not appear to be attacking Israel with full force to avoid escalating the conflict, a regional diplomat said. According to the Lebanese movement, Hamas is in a good position and does not yet need help.
1,000 Americans Left Behind as Last US Charter Plane Leaves Israel
Although Miller would not provide a number, a list released by Hamas of those approved to cross into Egypt had the names of five Americans on it, CBS reported. It was unclear if more Americans would be allowed to leave.
Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon said a family that has been in touch with his office said the communication has been of little help.
He said to Blinken during a Senate Appropriations Committee meeting that the family “relayed to me how they three times have gotten a text message [or] email saying, ‘Drop everything [and] go to the Rafah crossing,’ and they waited until dark. But each time, nothing happened.” “They weren’t interfered with by Hamas, just the gate never opened. With the trucks coming in [with humanitarian aid from Egypt], why can’t we at the same time … get those American families … out that gate?” he said.
Blinken said there were “occasions where we thought that we would be able to move forward … only to find that the necessary procedures that had to be put in place to actually make that work couldn’t go forward,” adding that “Hamas has been the impediment to that.”
“We’re working on it with Egypt. We’re working on it with Israel. We’re looking for ways to get people out. But because Hamas controls what goes on for the most part inside of Gaza, unless it agrees, then it’s going to be very difficult to get that done,” he said.
“It is true the Egyptians are prepared to allow American citizens and foreign nationals to come through the Rafah gate into Egypt. The Israelis have no issue with that,” he said.
“Hamas has been preventing their departure and making a series of demands. I can’t go through those demands in public, but that is the subject of the discussions in the negotiations that are ongoing,” he said in a CNN interview cited by The Hill. https://www.westernjournal.com/1000-americans-left-behind-last-us-charter-plane-leaves-israel/?
He referred to the Oct. 7 terror attacks carried out by his group against Israeli citizens, which left more than 1,400 of them dead. Hamas also took hundreds of hostages.
Hamad vowed similar attacks would occur “again and again” until Jews are eliminated from the region and forced out of their own country.
“Israel is a country that has no place on our land,” he said during an Oct. 24 interview, a clip of which began circulating on social media this week.
“We must remove it because [Israel] constitutes a security, military and political catastrophe to the Arab and Islamic nation,” he continued. “We are not ashamed to say this.”
“We must teach Israel a lesson, and we will do this again and again,” he said.
While referring to the surprise attacks last month, Hamad added, “[The attacks are] just the first time … Will we have to pay a price? Yes, and we are ready to pay it. We are called a nation of martyrs, and we are proud to sacrifice martyrs.”
“We are the victims of the occupation,” he stated. “Period. Therefore, nobody should blame us for the things we do. On Oct. 7, Oct. 10, October one-million, everything we do is justified.”
Hamad also claimed Islamist militants did not set out on Oct. 7 to target civilians and that the group faced what he called “complications.”
Hamad made it clear that Hamas does not simply want Gaza, but all of Israel. “The existence of Israel is illogical,” he said. “The existence of Israel is what causes all that pain, blood and tears.”
Intelligence analysts Jeffrey Prather, Gen. Michael Flynn both agree: Israel STOOD DOWN to allow Hamas to unleash terror
Retired Special Operations Soldier, former DIA Intelligence Collector and ex-DEA Special Agent Jeffrey Prather appeared with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, this week to discuss the situation in Israel, which both Prather and Gen. Michael Flynn agree had to have ordered a stand down that allowed Hamas to unleash terror on October 7 inside its borders. Israel's borders, which are arguably the most impenetrable in the world, combined with the intelligence and military strength of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) render it an impossibility that Hamas was somehow able to sneak by with nobody noticing. "I confirmed right after it happened that Israel's so-called 'intelligence failure' could not be an intelligence failure," Prather told Adams – watch the interview below. One thing that Prather really finds interesting about this whole thing is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's admission that the Hamas attack is "Israel's 9/11," especially in light of all that has been coming out recently about the false flag nature of America's 9/11 attack. "We have since learned about the FBI and CIA involvement in our 9/11," Prather explained. "We have learned about the Israeli art students who were infiltrated by Mossad, by the FBI; we learned that the FBI was not allowed to investigate the terrorists who were learning how to fly planes in Arizona, and were not allowed to investigate them." "We know that the deep state, which is really the intelligence community, planned and allowed 9/11 to happen. If Netanyahu makes a statement that this is Israel's 9/11, then the natural question to ask for real patriots is: well, were they in on it? And the clear answer for me, confirmed by Gen. Flynn, is yes. He said that his intelligence circle was infiltrated – he went out really far on a limb." Dr. Francis Boyle has also spoken out about this whole thing, stating that what Israel is now doing to the people of Gaza in response to the Hamas attack is akin to what the Nazis did to Jews during World War II. "So now Israel is doing to the Palestinians what the Third Reich did to the Jews," Adams stated, quoting what Dr. Boyle recently told him in a conversation.
Speaker of the Chinese Ministry of Defense “The United States is a war junkie. The country has existed for 240 years, and only 16 of them have not been at war. They have built 800 military bases around the world. Wherever the American military goes, people suffer everywhere,”
Many Americans think that the 2.3 million Gaza civilians are a worthy sacrifice to collateral damage in order to eliminate Hamas for killing Israeli civilians.
Does this mean American citizens are subject to bombing for the 7+ million civilians our government killed with C19?

Israeli Minister of Security: What is important in our war is victory, whatever the cost, and everything less than that is less important
The White House: The United States still does not plan to send American troops to Gaza “neither now nor later”
An advertising video was filmed in Ukraine calling on homosexuals to join the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Blasphemy of nuns
That question was finally answered by a war in which one life was lost [620,000 Civil War casualties] for every six people freed [3.9 million]. Maybe that was the only answer. But don’t pretend today that it was an easy answer – or that those who grappled with the dilemma in the 18th century were some special villains when most leaders and most people around the world saw nothing wrong with slavery.
Incidentally, the September 2003 issue of National Geographic had an article about the millions of people still enslaved around the world right now. But where is the moral indignation about that?
There are an estimated 27 million men, women, and children in the world who are enslaved — physically confined or restrained and forced to work, or controlled through violence, or in some way treated as property.
Therefore, there are more slaves today than were seized from Africa in four centuries of the trans-Atlantic slave trade [11 million total, and about 450,000, or about 4% of the total, who were brought to the United States]. The modern commerce in humans rivals illegal drug trafficking in its global reach—and in the destruction of lives.
🇰🇷🇰🇵🇷🇺🇺🇦North Korea has transferred more than a million artillery shells to Russia, Bloomberg reports, citing South Korean intelligence data.
It is believed that this will be enough for about two months of shelling based on the current level of shell use by the Russians.
Since August, about 10 weapons deliveries have been made. The DPRK also sent advisers on the use of ammunition to the Russian Federation.
Bloomberg recalls that Pyongyang has one of the world's largest reserves of artillery shells and missiles, compatible with Soviet-era weapons used by the Russian Federation.
In return, North Korea could receive millions or even billions of dollars, and Putin also promised Kim Jong-un to help put a spy satellite into orbit, the publication writes. According to media reports, North Korea appears to be in the final stages of this mission.
These technologies can be used to launch North Korean ballistic missiles.
Leader of the Revolution and the Islamic Republic, Ali Khamenei:
Islamic countries must cut off the export of oil and supplies and economic relations with the Zionist entity
Islamic countries must stop the Zionist crimes in Gaza immediately
Muslims must condemn Zionist crimes without hesitation and in the loudest voice in all international arenas
The Zionist entity is injured and disturbed, lies to its people and claims that it is concerned about its prisoners
The blow suffered by the Zionist entity cannot be restored
The Zionist entity does not know what to do, and without the help of the United States, it would be destroyed within days.
Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, in a prank call, says European leaders are "tired of Ukraine war" and that stopping migration "is impossible" due to the "size of the phenomenon."
Ram Ben Barak, former deputy director of Israeli Mossad wants carry out a total ethnic cleansing of the Gaza strip and displace 2.5 Palestinians around each corner of the world.
And here I will draw a comparison of the current dominant power in the Holy Land with previous ones and what they did:
- First the Assyrian, then the Babylonian who destroyed the First Temple and finally the Roman Empire who destroyed the Temple for the second and final time, the three of them expelled and displaced the Jews, scattering them all around the known world, exactly what the Israeli are doing today with the Palestinians.
- The expulsion of the Jews lasted from 733 BCE to 70 CE, 800 hundred years, the Israelis are trying to accomplish the same with the Palestinians in only 9 decades.
Wow… Turkey will notify the International Criminal Court of Israel’s war crimes.
“War crime evidence includes the use of white phosphorus bombs dropped by Israel on Palestinians, targeting of hospitals, schools, refugee camps, mosques and churches, as well as Israel’s rejection of the United Nations General Assembly’s resolution for a humanitarian cease-fire.”
Gun-Hating Biden Regime Threatens Israel – Will NOT Arm Jewish State Against Hamas Savages if They Continue to Provide Second Amendment Protections for Citizens From Haaretz: The U.S. administration told Israel that it would not supply the country with arms if they are used to arm civilians, and if they are to be distributed at political events. The administration also threatened to halt an order of some 20,000 rifles purchased by the National Security Ministry from American suppliers. The U.S. announcement shocked Israel’s defense establishment. In light of a considerable rifle shortage, resolving the crisis involved both political and judicial officials. The Regime was absolutely livid after learning a prominent public official dared to implement a de-facto version of the Second Amendment for Israel’s citizens with support from the Jewish state’s entire defense establishment. As Israel’s paper Haaretz revealed on Saturday, National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir shared social media posts showing him handing out rifles to Israeli citizens and “community security squads” throughout the nation. The paper also noted that Ben-Gvir appeared to be arming Israelis in regions dominated by religious, right-of-center Jews. This was no doubt another red flag for a Regime that also loathes conservative people of faith. The Regime responded by threatening to NOT arm Israel even as they face continued assaults from Hamas savages. Moreover, Biden and his thugs also threatened to stop an order of a massive supply of firearms by Israel’s National Security Ministry from American suppliers. It is important to note that the guns handed out by Ben-Gvir were not even from America. So what business of ours is it since no taxpayer dollars were used? Israel was reportedly shocked at this vindictiveness, though they should have anticipated it. Hamas is also probably dancing in the streets upon hearing this. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2023/11/sick-gun-hating-biden-regime-threatens-israel-will/
The Army Suddenly, and Chaotically, Told Hundreds of Soldiers They Have to Be Recruiters Immediately
Without warning, hundreds of noncommissioned officers were ordered via email to report to the recruiting school at Fort Knox, Kentucky, in less than a week, with hundreds more set to start at the school in December -- a sudden unexpected move by the Army as the service scrambles to boost its recruiting force by 800 by the end of the year. The orders came after a breakdown in how the Army tracks how many recruiters it has coming through the pipeline along with retention of existing ones, according to Lt. Gen. Douglas Stitt, the Army's top personnel officer. The sudden depletion of recruiters caught Army planners flat-footed, with officials unable to provide a clear explanation as to what went wrong. Now, NCOs will likely have to move during the holiday season and in the middle of the school year, sowing chaos for families. "Given the six-day heads up, we have zero time to plan child care," one noncommissioned officer told Military.com on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. "We can barely find and afford child care during the week as it is, so now my wife may end up having to quit her job entirely because it is impossible to find on the weekend." Read Next: Months Before Maine Mass Shooting, Gunman Was Prohibited from Handling Military Weapons by Army Reserve The Army has roughly 10,000 recruiters, but that force has been bleeding troops over the past year. The 800 emergency recruiting students will allow the service to maintain its numbers. Recruiters have reported to Military.com in recent months of working longer hours and, in some cases, getting fired for missing quotas. "I want to apologize to the soldiers and families for receiving this last-minute notification; that mistake is mine," Stitt told reporters Wednesday. "It's not lost on me, particularly at this point in time on the cusp of the holidays, the [impact] this has on our soldiers and NCOs." The mad dash to fill its recruiter ranks has the Army dismissing minimum standards to send soldiers to the school, including getting rid of requirements that they have passing fitness scores and be in compliance with body weight standards, according to an internal email reviewed by Military.com. Some soldiers who were set to be drill sergeants will be reassigned as recruiters. To incentivize recruiting roles, the Army is offering promotions and sometimes money. The service will promote sergeants going to recruiting school to staff sergeant assuming they are not flagged for reasons such as failing the fitness test "no questions asked," Sgt. Maj. Chris Stevens, the top enlisted leader for personnel policy, told reporters. The opportunity will extend to soldiers recently promoted to sergeant, with time in service and grade requirements being waived, possibly serving as a fast track on the enlisted promotion ladder. The soldier is still expected to complete the Advanced Leader Course, but it's unclear if that needs to be done within a year as is required with temporary promotions. Those who attend recruiting school and attend by February will earn a $5,000 bonus. Current recruiters who extend their recruiting contracts can earn $1,500 per month for one year. Staff sergeants who volunteer for recruiting school, and recruit 24 applicants in their first year on the job, will be promoted to sergeant first class. That incentive is not for the group of soldiers who were forced to go to the school.
The most messed up thing about the “counteroffensive”, is that the US, NATO, Zelensky, all of them knew the entire time that hundreds of thousand of Ukrainians would be slaughtered, and they sacrificed them anyway, for political and monetary gain.
Evil is an understatement.
Arestovich keeps slamming Zelenskiy publicly:
Former adviser to the presidential office, Alexey Arestovich, noted that failures at the front, the worsening political crisis and the inability to solve accumulated problems make Zelensky nervous and tighten the screws. However, the president will not be able to shift responsibility for his failures to someone else, since “the boss is always to blame.”
After publicly slamming Ukrainian president Zelenskiy, ex presidential advisor Arestovich decided to not stop there and gave his honest opinion (not the first time) about the rest of Ukrainian society: - You think I like everybody in our country? I don’t like every second person. A ton of scoundrels, a ton of Russian agents, a ton of populists, a ton of clowns... Video here: https://t.me/UkraineHumanRightsAbuses/38521
No election. No Democracy
NBC: “What keeps you going? Do you ever feel defeated?” Zelensky: “We are not ready to give our freedom to this f*cking terrorist Putin. That is why we are fighting. That’s it”.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy blasted calls for elections as irresponsible amid rumblings about the prospects of war and his political future.
“I believe that it’s not the right time for elections,” he said in the video address on Monday. Zelenskiy said it’s time for everyone in his nation to concentrate on its defense and battle, and called to remove space for conflict and “foreign game” against Ukraine.
He Complained publicly and then his good friend and assistant was murdered:
General Valery "I need a new army, mine is gone AGAIN" Zaluzhny has penned an actual treatise on how to win the war (!) for the Economist (!!), and... well... actually, read what Simplicius wrote, since he put it better than I possibly could:
"Well of course, if you could literally turn the army you have into a completely different army, then you could win the imaginary war. But that’s the problem, it’s nigh impossible to completely redesign your army from scratch in the midst of a brutal war you’re losing, with resources you don’t have nor will ever get."
An official statement by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhnyi:
It is an indescribable pain and a heavy loss for the Armed Forces of Ukraine and for me personally.
Today, under tragic circumstances, my assistant and close friend, Major Gennadiy Chastiakov, was killed in his family circle on his birthday.
An unknown explosive device detonated in one of his gifts. Gennadiy is survived by his wife and four children. My deepest condolences to the family...
Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Gennadiy has been a reliable shoulder for me, fully devoting his life to the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the fight against Russian aggression.
The causes and circumstances will be established during the pre-trial investigation.
May he rest in peace!
Zelensky's people have a different story:
The Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs provided their version of the death of the assistant to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
➡️Chastyakov returned home with gifts from colleagues for his birthday and began showing them to his family.
➡️One of the gifts was a box of "new Western model" grenades.
➡️"At first, his son took a grenade in his hands and started turning the safety pin. Then Chastyakov took the grenade pulling the pin, causing an explosion."
➡️In the apartment, they found 5 more unexploded grenades.
➡️The military officer who gave such a gift was found, and 2 grenades were confiscated from his office.
Trump decided not to accept Zelensky's invitation to visit Ukraine in order to see for himself that it is impossible to "negotiate" a quick end to the war with Russia.
"I have a lot of respect for President Zelensky, but I think it would be inappropriate to go to Ukraine at this time. The Biden administration is now dealing with him, and I would not want to create a conflict of interest," the former US president said.
During his speech, Trump said that “millions of people” would still be alive if the 2020 election “wasn’t rigged.”
“And when you think of it, how important elections are, you’s have millions of people alive right now,” Trump said. “If the election wasn’t rigged, they’d be alive. Ukraine, Israel, The attack would have never been made. All these people would be alive.”
“I make you this promise as your president and nobody else can say it: I will restore peace through strength,” Trump said. “And yes, I am the only one that will prevent World War 3 — because we are very close to World War 3.”

The Minister of Jewish Heritage, Amichai Eliyahu, has proposed dropping an atomic bomb on the Gaza Strip. During the interview, the minister said that there are “no innocents” in Gaza and answered in the affirmative to the host’s question about whether an atomic bomb should be dropped on the entire Gaza Strip, and also said that the death of hostages as a result of the attack was a necessary price. It's funny that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in his response to these words, said that Israel and the IDF act "in accordance with the highest standards of international law." Israel does not officially confirm its possession of atomic weapons.
Netanyahu removes minister who said nuclear bomb could be dropped in Gaza. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has decided to suspend Minister for Jerusalem and Jewish Heritage Amichai Eliyahu from government meetings until further notice after the politician spoke about the possibility of dropping a nuclear bomb on the Gaza Strip. Radio Kan reports this . In addition, the Israeli prime minister categorically disagreed with the minister’s statement, emphasizing that Eliyahu’s statement is “out of touch with reality” and does not correspond to reality.” “Israel acts in accordance with the standards of international law. We will continue to do this until victory," Netanyahu said. Prior to this, Israel's Minister of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage, Amichai Eliyahu, stated that dropping an atomic bomb on the Gaza Strip was “one of the possibilities” for the development of a conflict between Israel and the Palestinian movement Hamas . He also did not agree with allowing humanitarian aid into Gaza. t.me/iEarlGreyTV
Israeli media says Congressmen are not Blocked from Visiting Israel:
The US Pentagon prevented high-ranking military personnel from traveling to Israel
US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin issued a memorandum in which he announced that he would stop all security escorts by his ministry for members of the US House of Representatives who want to visit Israel.
The Pentagon will not allow senior military officials to travel to Israel. According to a memorandum published by the American media, the contents of which were confirmed by an official from the US Department of Defense, The memorandum, whose instructions went into effect last Tuesday, said the restrictions did not apply to President Joe Biden, members of the government, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and his deputy.
This is the same thing Zelensky said!!
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:
If the Middle East falls to the Axis of terror, Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, Houthi and Iran‘s other minions, Europe will be next, and no one will be safe.
