Loose Ends in Ukraine
Fact 1: The allies of Ukraine are recognizing that it is a lost cause and are trying to find ways out that are not too embarrassing.
The huge embarrassment of the pranking of the President of Italy where she admitted to wanting to find a minimally embarrassing exit from supporting Ukraine. (She thought she was talking with an African leader, while she was actually talking to the Russian pranksters Jovan and Lexus.)
Repeated exposure in the media of allied leaders pushing for negotiation.
Cutting of funding to Ukraine by the US and others.
Public repeated exposure of the corruption in Ukraine allowed in the media - virtually a new scandal a day.
Fact 2: Even the top military commander for Ukraine has admitted (in an interview with the Economist) that it is a lost cause.
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."
Fact 3: Many of the die-hard true believers in the Ukraine military were just taken out in one explosion. This was after they were ordered to do something utterly foolish by their commanders violating even simple military common sense. Their opinions no longer weigh in the balance of what to do.
On November 3, a meeting of officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine of the 128th mountain assault brigade was held, dedicated to the awarding of personnel. The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was forced to publicly admit massive losses in manpower.
Fifty of their best killed means about 150 injured for about 200 casualties.
t looks 128th Transcarpatian Brigade lost more than 50 soldiers/officers, at the Iskander strike in Zaporozhye not around 20 as previously reported…. If 50 were receiving the awards posthumously then far more than 50 were killed and far more than 200 were casualties. The footprint of an Iskander is about the size of a football field.
🇷🇺🇺🇦 After the situation was made public, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Rustam Umerov confirmed the fact of a missile attack on the formation of the 128th brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and ordered an investigation into the circumstances of the event.
Let us remind you that an X-59 missile allegedly arrived at the location of Ukrainian soldiers from the 128th brigade. Reportedly, the command sent the military out to form a formation in honor of Artilleryman's Day and decided to award medals, but a Russian missile arrived as a reward.
A rocket flew into the formation of the Ukrainian military from the 128th brigade in a front-line village in the Zaporozhye region, destroying more than 20 enemy soldiers.
Fact 4: Zelensky is delusional, refusing to quit, refusing to negotiate a truce, and refusing to have an election to replace him, in spite of the allies repeatedly asking him to have a new election presumably to get him out of the presidency.
The West have given up on Ukraine.
Zelensky’s top advisors are leaking to the media that he is “delusional” and there is no path to victory for Ukraine.
The NAFO idiots and propaganda consumers are removing the 🇺🇦 from their names and bios.
It’s over, and everyone knows it.
Zelensky is delusional, Ukrainian government officials are “stealing like there’s no tomorrow” and Kiev is running out of men. Those are just some revelations from a recent TIME piece, which tries to be sympathetic but ends up – inadvertently, I think – painting the former vaudeville actor as someone LARPing the ending of ‘Downfall.’
Zelensky “feels betrayed by his Western allies. They have left him without the means to win the war, only the means to survive it,” one of his aides tells Time’s Simon Shuster :
“He deludes himself,” one of his closest aides tells me in frustration. “We’re out of options. We’re not winning. But try telling him that.”
Either the Ukraine military commanders were incredibly stupid or they ordered their people into an irresistible target for the Russians, neatly taking out the best warriors.
Either way it is very bad for Ukraine.
Ukraine is a massive failure, and its end is near. The West is done with the Ukraine failure and is running to the new shiny war in Israel, distracting from their truly amazing gratuitous waste of lives and wealth in Ukraine. The only reasonable option for Ukraine is to negotiate with the Russians, assuming that after all that Russia is willing.
Zelensky is now a liability and his most ardent supporters in the military are now dead, or are essentially stabbing the war effort in the back as General Zaluzhny is.
Zelensky knows an awful lot about the money laundering that went on with Biden and others, and cannot be allowed to speak out on that.
It is time for Zelensky to go. How could it be done?
1. He could be killed, blaming it on the Russians. He could be set up, much like his most ardent warriors were. Setting up inconvenient people for elimination seems to be a common theme for the Deep State.
2. He could be encouraged to take his own life - Hitler style. Zelensky says he carries a gun with him for suicide in case of Russian capture. He could be forced to do it.
3. His double could be killed in a way that makes identification difficult such as a large ied, or large explosion. This would allow him to go under cover into one of his residences. It was revealed that his mother in law had purchased a palatial estate in Egypt near one reportedly owned by Angelina Jolie in a very secure and gated community. That may be just one of many such places. Recall the rumors about Hitler and his escape to Brazil...
At this point it is doubtful if Russia would negotiate. Putin has publicly called Odessa "A Russian City" suggesting the Russian Federation won't stop until it has Odessa. Russia is just continuing the assaults and waiting for everything to fall apart in Ukraine.
Could Zelensky do something very rash and attempt a nuclear accident or a biological weapon deployment? It is doubtful since he would need the assistance of Zaluzhny and/or the West. They have repeatedly tried to take the ZNPP and create a nuclear disaster, but Russian defenses have proved to be sufficient to avoid that.
Alexyi Arestovich has been the annointed backup president. I predicted well over a yeart ago that he would be the one to lead what is left of Ukraine after its defeat. Recent events support that : He has been publicly criticizing Zelensky and yet has uniquely remained both alive and able to speak to the public. More recently he has even declared his intention to run for President.
Ukraine will be defeated (some say it already has - much like a headless chicken that still runs around after decapitation.
Russian will take Odessa, Kherson and associated areas, and then make a deal with what is left of Ukraine: No NATO, no long range offensive weapons, no Nazis in government, and general demilitarization. Poland may take part or all of the remaining Ukraine as a protectorate.
It is doubtful that Zelensky will survive since both Russia and the West have reasons for wanting him dead.
Russia will hold tribunals for war crimes committed by the Azov et al, who will generally go into hiding worldwide. A Russian official has recently stated that they would be hunted down and brought to justice no matter where they hide.
Meanwhile the West will continue to support the war in the Middle East. Once again the US and Europe are backing a bizarrely immoral regime - physically supporting them while verbally disagreeing in public about its actions. In Ukraine the NAZIs were supported, while in the Middle East Israel is acting in the best traditions of the Nazis; invoking Amelek as a literally public call for genocide.
Israel will never again gain any sympathy for the Holocaust, since they are committing one themselves. If they use gas in the tunnels, the parallels will be complete. Already the civilian death tolls in Israel at about 1 month is more than the total civilian death tolls in Ukraine on both sides over 22 months.
In 25 days 🇮🇱 killed more civilians in Gaza than 🇺🇦 civilians have died since the SMO in 🇺🇦 started on 24/02/2022. Over 3000 killed Palestinians were children, in contrast, UN reports 526 children killed during SMO.
Russia could have taken Kiev in a few days but they would have done what the Israelis are currently doing in Gaza. Russia decided instead to do a feint in the north allowing a successful assault in the south.
Perhaps the Russians read Sun Tsu:
In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good. So, too, it is better to recapture an army entire than to destroy it, to capture a regiment, a detachment or a company entire than to destroy them.
Move not unless you see an advantage; use not your troops unless there is something to be gained; fight not unless the position is critical. No ruler should put troops into the field merely to gratify his own spleen; no general should fight a battle simply out of pique. If it is to your advantage, make a forward move; if not, stay where you are. Anger may in time change to gladness; vexation may be succeeded by content. But a kingdom that has once been destroyed can never come again into being; nor can the dead ever be brought back to life. Hence the enlightened ruler is heedful, and the good general full of caution. This is the way to keep a country at peace and an army intact.
