The NATO proxy war in Ukraine is not going well and the latest incarnation of it, in the form of the counter offensive has failed. The Ukrainian army is badly depleted and all the best troops long used up. The NeoCons who are in power and the real force behind NATO are desperate since the decades long plot to destroy Russia via Ukraine is looking like a complete failure and is their last chance to remain the dominant power. What they don't realize is their uni polar world is already gone.
But they are not about to give up easily and it has been long predicted they would try something stupid like a nuclear false flag incident where they would blame Russia on blowing up the huge Zaporozhye NPP nuclear plant and causing widespread radioactivity and then this could be a pretext for a state of emergency and an excuse for NATO to get involved directly in the war. This would be easily sold to the public but would be a massive and dangerous escalation.

Seymour Hersh the veteran US investigate journalist who in the past broke many major stories from the Watergate, CIA Assassinations, My Lai Massacre, Israeli nuclear weapons, Abu Ghraib, Syrian False Flag Chemical Weapon, Killing Bin Laden. And now he strikes again with an article on how the Americans carried out the destruction of the Russian-German Nordstream I and II pipelines.
Nordstream I was supplying the German economy with huge quantities of gas and Nordstream II which had been completed but not yet put into action was permanently put of action by the sabotage. This forced Germany to buy far more expensive liquidified natural gas, making their industry far less competitive and cutting off any reapproachment with Russia. The US government had repeatedly tried to block the construction of NordStream II and had stated one way or another it would not go ahead. Yet when the pipeline was blown up, Germany did nothing and took in lying down. An once proud nation reduced to an obedient subservient vassal state
In Hersh's article which he published on his substack because mainstream media has long ceased to carry any truth and this was the most effective way to get the story out, documents step by step on how they planned, implemented and carried out the attack. The consequence of this news story have rippled around the world but not in the collective West that have done their level best to make sure the news was not reported. The opening paragraph begins:

Zelensky was ready for Neutrality But UK refused to allow the Ukrainian leader to negotiate – Pentagon ex-adviser

It is already widely known in non MSM circles that Zelensky was ready to make peace back in March but instead was blocked from doing so by the UK on behalf of the USA / NATO. As a result of that decision, many tens of thousands of Ukrainian soldiers have died needlessly for no good reason and Europe's economy plunged into recession. It is also why we are all paying high energy prices.

Reuters has reported that on Oct 28th there were thousands of Czech protestors in Prague calling for the government to resign and for direct talks to be held with Russia to supply gas. The suicidal sanctions are hurting and thankfully at least in some places people are beginning to realize the NATO orchestrated war and orchestrated economic suicide are not in their interests.
In the meantime, the Irish government is attempting to bribe the population as they just announced a package of over € 1,200 million to subsidize energy bills this year and early next by paying off €200 of 2.2 million households for the next 3 billing periods. People might remember how hard the government fought to bring in Water Charges which was only going to bring in €150 million. Yet now barely without asking they are forking OUT ten times that much. The question is Why ? read full story / add a comment

The sabotage of the Nord Stream I and II gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea raises the stakes in the West vs Russian war and it now guarantees very serious energy problems for Europe this winter because it just removed the possibility of negotiation to save the day since the pipelines could probably not be fixed for months at best.
This leaves the question of who benefits? Naturally the MSM blames the attack on Russia. But they could have easily turned off the gas at source without damaging their own pipeline.
This article by Declan Hayes explains what has really happened and who benefits.
The net result of these terrorist attacks is to render obsolete German popular demands to open Nord Stream 2, Declan Hayes writes.read full story / add a comment

A US grouping, constituted around the thought of the philosopher Leo Strauss, controls from now on both the Secretariat of Defense and the Secretariat of State. After having organized many wars since those of Yugoslavia, they imagined the one in Ukraine. It is now manipulating the European Union and is preparing to deprive it of energy sources. If European leaders do not open their eyes, their alliance with Washington will lead to the collapse of the Union’s economy. There is no point in believing that Europeans will be spared because they are developed. The Straussians wrote, as early as 1992, that they would not hesitate to destroy Germany and the EU. read full story / add a comment

The world still applauds the great effort that our government made in advocating negotiations for peace that led to a settlement, and the 1998 Good Friday Agreement on this island.
So why is our present government, rejecting neutrality, and refusing to lead the campaign for negotiations for peace to end the horrific Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Instead, we are parroting pro-western/NATO war propaganda, that Ukraine can win this war, with more weapons, and that at the same time we can help destroy the Russian economy. read full story / add a comment
Gonzalo Lira: War going badly for Ukraine. US likely to assassinate Zelensky to create chaos in Ukraine for Russia
international / anti-war / imperialism / opinion/analysis Monday July 25, 2022 00:09 by T 1 video file
A recent video from Gonzalo Lira who lives in Ukraine and has been making regular videos on the war has suggested the US is likely to assassinate the puppet leader of Ukraine, Zelensky because the war is going very badly for them and the disaster for the US and NATO is going to make Afghanistan look mild. They need to turn the tables and generate as much chaos and problems as possible in Ukraine so as to dump it at the feet of Russia and hope that it bleeds them dry.
In many ways this was the game-plan of the NATO provoked war all along. read full story / add a comment

In this recent episode they have a discussion with Larry Johnson who is a former veteran of the CIA and the State Department’s with extensive experience and knowledge has been bringing a lot of sober analysis and logical sense to the debate on the current Ukrainian Russian war which regrettly in the mainstream media is just 100% pure propaganda and lies.
The Duran team and Larry got together and discussed all those important issues of narrative. This is a must listen interview for anyone interested in current events and the insanity of the West. It is particularly recommended to anyone who has been only read the tribe in the mainstream media. read full story / add a comment

It’s possible that before I came here, I doubted [the stories] a little bit. But back then when we freed the first prisoners from the house, which was directly situated nearby the Azovstal’ [factory], when those prisoners and civilians came out from the basements, they hugged and kissed us. And told us that they are happy to see us. They cried with tears in their eyes! I then realized that I ended up exactly for… (holding back emotions) what was needed. And I don’t doubt one drop that it was the right idea.read full story / add a comment
Change we would all agree is essential if the world is not destined to endure further destruction and devastation and even a third world war .
A ceasefire in Ukraine and the declared neutrality of Ukraine long sought after by Russia would be beneficial to all concerned.
Would this not be preferable to an escalation of armed conflict which is all too often the preferred option in a world conditioned and habituated to the belief that the world is divided up into goodies and baddies. “We” being preternaturally the “goodies”.read full story / add a comment
