A hundred seconds to midnight, that's where we are at. Knowing this I, anyway, got my clothes ready for tomorrow, waking up at 5:20 AM, taking a shower, reading the news, and then heading out for work.

But perhaps tomorrow is the last day. Why?Because we, in the west, are under the absolute power of a degenerate elite that will not shed a tear if your world ends tomorrow. They impoverish us, exploit us, prostitute us, kill us, and discard us in a heartbeat.

This is what we are against, whether you understand it or not. This elite is relentless. They will push us to the brink of annihilation and one step further if need be. They have the power and we don't. It is for this reason that the global south (the 3rd world where I was born) and millions of powerless people in the west as well, are hoping the struggle brought to the doorsteps of mother Russia by these degenerates culminates in victory. Because failure would mean not only the disintegration of Russia, but the disintegration of hope.

This enemy of our time has no honor. They lie and deceive. They are thieves and murderers. They do not represent democracy, since they absolutely do not care about the opinion of the masses, your opinion or my opinion does not count. We are of no value for them. Did they not lie when they promised peace while preparing for war? when they offered friendship while stabbing your back?

This struggle will be massive, will reverberate throughout every corner of the world. You will not be safe, however far away you think you are. It will reach you, your children, your friends and your enemies alike. Today like yesterday, it just so happens that Russia is again on the frontlines of this fight, the same fight, "Don't yet rejoice in his defeat, you men!

Although the world stood up and stopped the bastard,

The bitch that bore him is in heat again.”

It can’t be a surprise to the neocons that the Ukrainians might be defeated. Terrifying to think what they’re response will be.

Arnaud Bertrand translation of key points of French article.

Emmanuel Todd, one of the greatest French intellectuals today, claims that the "Third World War has started."

Arnaud Bertrand @RnaudBertrand


He says "it's obvious that the conflict, started as a limited territorial war and escalating to a global economic confrontation, between the whole of the West on the one hand and Russia and China on the other hand, has become a world war."

He believes that "Putin made a big mistake early on, which is [that] on the eve of the war [everyone saw Ukraine] not as a fledgling democracy, but as a society in decay and a “failed state” in the making. [...] I think the Kremlin's calculation was that this decaying society...

... would crumble at the first shock. But what we have discovered, on the contrary, is that a society in decomposition, if it is fed by external financial and military resources, can find in war a new type of balance, and even a horizon, a hope."

He says he agrees with Mearsheimer's analysis of the conflict: "Mearsheimer tells us that Ukraine, whose army had been overtaken by NATO soldiers (American, British and Polish) since at least 2014, was therefore a de facto member of the NATO, and that the Russians had...

... announced that they would never tolerate Ukraine in NATO. From their point of view, the Russians are therefore in a war that is defensive and preventive. Mearsheimer added that we would have no reason to rejoice in the eventual difficulties of the Russians because...

...since this is an existential question for them, the harder it would be, the harder they would strike. The analysis seems to hold true."

He however has some criticism for Mearsheimer:

"Mearsheimer, like a good American, overestimates his country. He considers that, if for the Russians the war in Ukraine is existential, for the Americans it is basically only one 'game' of power among others. After Vietnam...

...Iraq and Afghanistan, what's one more debacle? The basic axiom of American geopolitics is: 'We can do whatever we want because we are sheltered, far away, between two oceans, nothing will ever happen to us'. Nothing would be existential for America.

Insufficient analysis which today leads Biden to proceed mindlessly. America is fragile. The resistance of the Russian economy is pushing the American imperial system towards the precipice. No one had expected that the Russian economy would hold up against the 'economic power'...

...of NATO. I believe that the Russians themselves did not anticipate it.

If the Russian economy resisted the sanctions indefinitely and managed to exhaust the European economy, while it itself remained, backed by China, American monetary and financial controls of the world...

...would collapse, and with them the possibility for United States to fund their huge trade deficit for nothing. This war has therefore become existential for the United States. No more than Russia, they cannot withdraw from the conflict, they cannot let go. This is why we...

... are now in an endless war, in a confrontation whose outcome must be the collapse of one or the other."

He firmly believes the US is in decline but sees it as bad news for the autonomy of vassal states:

"I have just read a book by S. Jaishankar, Indian Minister of Foreign Affairs (The India Way), published just before the war, who sees American weakness, who knows that the...

...confrontation between China and the US will have no winner but will give space to a country like India, and to many others. I add: but not to Europeans. Everywhere we see the weakening of the US, but not in Europe and Japan because one of the effects of the retraction of...
