Simon Kuper's book about how a small group of 'Tory Toffs' who were at Oxford in the 1980s masterminded the Brexit project to reclaim their aristocratic birthright is highly entertaining, but not convincing.

If you support a despotic regime in any fashion then you are part of the problem that you are moaning about

author by leftypublication date Tue Apr 19, 2022 14:00author address author phone Report this post to the editors

No Keith, I do NOT support the likes of the EU or FG/FF/G!

Our media are openly spewing mistruths with serious omissions and propaganda about Ukraine 24/7.
If you can't see that then you are blind. The treatment of Russia in the media is racist in the extreme

Open nazi supporters complete with SS tattoos in the Azov battalion are now treated as "heroes".
Have we forgotten the horrors of WWII so soon?
100 million deaths, 6 million Jews in the camps
Up is now down. Black is white.

No mention on RTE about that or how these ultra nationalist Ukrainian brigades have been shelling ethnic Russian civilians in Donbass for the last 8 years in complete contravention of Minsk, and how they built up thousands of their troops on the edge of the Donbass region in preparation for what looked like an ethnic cleansing operation which is mainly what triggered the Russian response

Not to mention how Zelensky started blabbing in Munich about equipping nuclear weapons
and joining NATO, which would effectively mean US nukes on the Russian border 4 minutes from Moscow
Would the yanks allow Russian nukes 4 minutes from Washington? I somehow doubt it very much.
Remember the Cuban missile crisis?

Ask yourself "Cui Bono".
The US have stopped Nordstream 2 and driven a huge wedge between German and Russia which were getting far too friendly for the liking of policy wonks in Washington. An economic pact between Russia and Germany has always represented a potentially huge economic threat to Washington. Cue provocations in Ukraine. Trump of course was the one who gave his blessing to arming Ukraine and the US have been openly shipping weapons to them non stop ever since (and probably before)

Now relations between east and west are destroyed for years to come. The EU is again under the full control of Washington and is economically weakened by the sanctions. And the US can sell it's filthy fracked gas to the EU at record prices. Not to mention all the weapons sales it will generate thus transferring billions of dollars from public to private hands. Win Win for Washington.

And the longer the US can drag it out by pumping weapons and intelligence into Ukraine then the more resources they can drain
from Russia thus weakening them. So the US puppet masters are not interested in any peace deals. They don't give a fuck about
Ukrainian lives and neither does Zelensky. You can expect these talks to drag out for ages.

As for Zelensky, we all know about his 39 million dollar mansion in the US and his large bank balance as revealed in the Panama papers. He's bought and paid for by the US with printed dollars. As are half the key actors in the EU.
And the ultra nationalist mercenaries would likely murder Zelensky if he capitulated to Russian demands in talks anyway.
So he's not really that interested in peace talks.

Thing is, the Donbass is already full of ethnic Russians. As is Crimea. What would really change if Ukraine just acknowledged their independence, left them alone as per the Minsk agreement terms and agreed not to ever join NATO? Pretty much nothing if you ask me. Yet still Zelensky and his nationalist brigades insist on fighting on for their US puppet masters with US/UK/European supplied weapons thus killing more Ukrainians and Russians unnecessarily. Meanwhile gas and electricity and food prices reach record highs and the EU stupidly commit economic suicide for America's geopolitical gain

Basically The US want to drag this out to the bitter end and fight to the last Ukrainian.After all it's not them taking in 200,000+ refugees is it? No. It's stupid paddy shooting himself in the foot again, looking for a pat on the head from his EU lords and masters who is doing so, despite a housing crisis he has refused to address properly for the last ten years. And a foreign debt load of 250 billion.

And then there is the blatant hypocrisy. Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen. But no talk of sanctions for any of that.
Those all out violent invasions were different of course weren't they? After all, American bombs only kill soldiers don't they? As do their depleted Uranium and white phosphorous bombs as documented in Fallujah and elsewhere. And Iraqi lives were just way less important than white Ukrainian ones weren't they? And Yemeni lives, even less so it appears.

Nor were the media at all interested in tugging our heartstrings into the current crescendo over all the deaths in Yemen. At the hands of a US/UK backed Saudi dictatorship. How many executions was it they held this month there? But they are OUR dictators so that is ok. Nothing to see there folks. Not like that anti democratic Putin devil.

But Yeah Putin is evil and some refugees deserve our help far more than others. Funny how it's the ones serving a US geopolitical agenda the most which are the ones we all focus on and care about so much on cue from our media. It's frankly sickening.
It's as if all critical thinking has disappeared.

I could go on all day. But instead I'll leave you with this interview with former Swiss intelligence officer and NATO adviser Jacques Baud on the roots of the Ukraine-Russia war and its growing dangers.

And I'll ask that people tune into RT at the above link so they can hear the other side of things.

A side that our unelected "friends" in the EU commission and all the so called "democracies" in Europe,
including our own, have chosen to censor from their citizens.

What is it they have to hide?

You might be interested in this. How US military contractors
such as Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Northrop Grumman are making out like bandits on this war
and how pentagon budgets have skyrocketted to record levels.

Cui Bono Keith?

Serious attempts have been made in Western nations to silence RT, following Russia’s military offensive in Ukraine. The EU Commission has given regulators in the bloc’s nations powers to ban the media outlet. If you’ve faced difficulties accessing RT’s content due to those restrictions, here are some steps you can take to bypass them.

1. If you’re reading RT on your smartphone, you can use our Android app, which can be downloaded via this link.

2. On your PC, you can use the Tor browser, which can be downloaded here. RT’s website address in Tor remains the same: www.rt.com. If Tor doesn’t work for you, or is unavailable via regular means, you can resolve this issue by sending an empty email to [email protected] and you will be sent the necessary link. 

3. Another way of circumventing restrictions is to use the Psiphon censorship-bypass tool, which can be downloaded for Windows, Android, and other systems. (Windows download here, direct Android download here, and other options here). Alternatively, you can use a VPN service of your choice.

4. You can also stay in touch with RT through Telegram by subscribing to RT’s soon-to-be-reborn channel there.
