Another commentary on the Russia-Ukraine War

#RussiaUkraineWar

The more I watch the hysterics and the histrionics of Western leaders and commentators, the more I marveled at the cool, calm and stoical way V Putin and his crew are operating!

I see in the conducts of the Russians evidence of thorough professionalism, unlike what we see in Western leaders – vapid emptiness combined with inferiority complex masked only by imbecilic garrulous snarling.

Is that what psychologists call Impotent Rage? Or what is said about empty drums making the loudest noise!

The Russians talk little, and when they do, they stick with the basic facts. Their presentations and releases are well-contextualized, which makes them good for both easy reading and the deduction of the facts from the chaffs. Note: we talk here only of officials and not partisan bloggers and ranters.

The West, on the other hand, not only shamelessly tell barefaced but IDIOTIC lies that can be debunked by anyone with small amounts of brain cells. What one reads  in Western media or official releases are mind-bending stupid, even ultra-crude propagandas that do not add up, and can easily be shown to be devoid of any logic.

Even some of the “analyses” one read from Western academics are so devoid of elementary common sense that it shocks that they were produced by Professors and PhD. Example is the McFaul guy who was said to be an ex ambassador, but now teaches in one of the Ivy League universities.

That people in the West can be so contemptuously treated by their officials, their scholars, and their so-called journalists simply boggles the mind.

What is it that makes Westerners so gullible? Why do they continue to gobble up the bs their officials tell them with scrutiny, more-so when they know that these officials tell lies as a matter of routine.

But then, was it not said that a people get the government that they deserved?

No one doubt that the West is a Master of “communication”, but what is becoming clearer each day is that the Collective West has become one huge joke – a bunch of crass, uncultured, ill-educated ignoramuses who live in a self-created bubble that is totally divorce from reality!

Western leaders come across as totally delusional. They are abysmally ignorant of what goes on in the world and, lamentably, they don’t care!

Little wonder that they crippled their own economies thinking that they are punishing Russia! Today, countries like France and Germany now talk about introducing rations!

It remains beyond belief that a people, that DEPENDS on the rest of the world for almost everything they need to survive both domestically and industrially, will don the garb on unbridled arrogance and think that it can talk to the world from a position of strength!

Pardon me, what strength?

What is it exactly that gave Westerners the pompous arrogance to want to continue to hector and give lectures to the rest of us?

We all saw how just one deft move by Putin revealed the total emptiness of the much-publicized Western sanctions from hell.

Being forced to pay for gas in Ruble is causing maximum rumbling in the western economies! Even a rabidly Russophobic country like Latvia promptly caved in!

The clueless Fascism-loving rulers in Berlin are just waking up to the myth of German industrial power?

It is only gas which Putin demanded should be paid in Ruble by “unfriendly countries”, we can only guess what will happen when the Russians decided to go full-throttle and impose their own counter-sanctions. We can also only guess what will happen to “RICH” EU when the rest of the world begin to demand that their resources be paid for in currencies that are backed by real commodities, and not some fancifully-printed fiat currency that is backed by NOTHING!

It’s said that people who live in glass house should not throw stones – the West, which has military bases all over the world, appear to forget that the Russians can play their idiotic game of arming separatists who will make life hellish for Western Imperialist forces in foreign lands! A few S-400s batteries in Syria and Iran will totally change the game in the ME.

And if the Russians decide to play by the West’s playbook, they will supply advanced weapons to anti-West forces all over the world, there are plenty of them.

My only prayer is that V Putin will remember us in Africa!

Russia’s use of Hypersonic Weapons

#Ukrainecrisis

International Community: Russia has used Hypersonic weapon on defenseless Ukraine.

Alaye: Ha! Given the amount of weapons that the West poured and keep on pouring into the country, Ukraine can hardly be called defenseless.

By the way, is there a treaty that ban the use of hypersonic weapons?

The trouble with you westerners is that not only do you, a tiny minority of humanity, arrogate to yourself the right to speak for the world, your sanctimonious hypocrisy stinks so much that it reaches into the high heavens.

Like little children, you cannot think beyond your own self- and parochial interests.

Despite all the noises that you made about your education and Ivy League institutions, your worldview is limited to your self-generated Manichaean tapestry of We Good, Other bad.

That your conducts against the rest of humanity easily debunk your self-proclaimed righteousness appears not to bother you in the least. You have no problem with stealing or lying; in fact, you glorify them. Yet, you mount your high horse to pontificate about ethics and morality!

That is even still very understandable; what is beyond belief is your perceived right of entitlement to other people’s support. It is simply beyond belief that you consider yourself so exceptional that you take it for a given that other people will fall over to do your bidden, even in this age!

Such thoughts can only be imagined  and entertained by thoughtless, uncultured, and soulless narcissists with the integrity of hyenas.

Look at you, you demonized Venezuela because the country will not allow your corporations to steal her wealth. Your sanctions destroyed all the good things that Hugo Chavez built to help his people (health, education etc), you continue with his successor whom you attempted to overthrow on several occasions. You  installed a puppet and vested him with legitimacy and rights to the sovereign wealth of Venezuela. That is not all, you very brazenly and shamelessly stole the gold the country kept in reserves in your bank.

Your conducts all across the world will shame a nation of barbarians.

Yet, you felt neither shame nor compunction whatever as you trooped to Caracas with your ugly faces to ask that the country you have spent the last two decades or so destroying, join you in your fight against one of the few countries that stood with it in its darkest hours!

How do you guys reason, if you do so at all?

You crawled to Iran also to beg for help to counter Russia.

Wow!

You guys are to besotted with yourself that you failed to pay any attention to the massive geopolitical shifts that have been taking place while you keep on admiring yourself in your self-created cocoons. That is when you are not preoccupied with admiring your genitals or how to rewrite basic biology.

And to add insult to your calamity, you dared to threaten China and India if they do not join you in your fight with Russia!!

What exactly is wrong with you morons? Who exactly do you think that you are?

Only uncultured philistines talk to other people in the language of bullies.

Who the heck are you to issue threats?

The real question today is with what can you back your imbecilic threats up?

If you stupid idiots have not been so caught up in your self-generated exceptionalism, you would have noticed that the era when other people look at you and like what they see is long gone. Most of us today look at you, no longer with admiration or envy, but with utter contempt and disdain. Your unbridled decadence is a big putoff!

Today, you come across as some barbaric imbeciles with absolutely nothing to recommend them. You don’t talk; you lecture. You are incapable of discussions; you hector. You lack basic diplomatic skills; you threaten.

You are about the only people without enough resources to cater for themselves, yet you gallivant around the world with arrogant pomposity.

Your thinking remain warped in the 16th century.

Sorry, mate, but the game is over.

I have said several times that for the Russians, Ukraine is just a side show. The country is too poor, too unimportant and too badly-governed to warrant all the attentions that are being lavished on it.

V Putin appears to be determined to put an end to all the nonsense from the West, and to confine the Collective West’s hubris to the ashes of history.

He knows and he understands your game perfectly well. He also knows the truism in Chairman Mao’s aphorism: Political power grows out of the barrel of the gun.

Mr Putin lobbed his hypersonic weapons to let you know:

  1. That he has them;
  2. There’s absolutely nothing you can do to counter them;
  3. The fate that awaits you if you make the wrong moves.

Listen to Jean-Paul Satre: “The time of the boomerang has arrived… You can see it’s the end; Europe is springing leaks everywhere. What then has happened? It simply is that in the past we made history and now it is being made of us. The ratio of forces has been inverted; decolonization has begun; all that our hired soldiers can do is to delay its completion.”

“What then did you expect when you unbound the gag that muted those black mouths? That they would chant your praises? Did you think that when those heads that our fathers had forcibly bowed down to the ground were raised again, you would find adoration in their eyes?” Jean-Paul Sartre, Black Orpheus

#Ukrainecrisis – Point Counter-point

#Ukrainecrisis

Point!

“US makes NATO threat after Russia strikes base near Polish border

Jake Sullivan, the national security advisor to US President Joe Biden, has warned Russia that NATO would go “full force” if any strike is recorded on NATO territory – intentional or not – after Moscow attacked a Ukrainian military base near the Polish border.

In an appearance on CBS’ ‘Face the Nation’ on Sunday, Sullivan was asked by host Margaret Brennan whether the current US policy was “that any strike into Polish territory or airspace, intentional or unintentional” would be considered an attack on NATO.”

Source: RT

Counter-point!

“NATO is not an immediate threat. We observed its fighting capabilities in Afghanistan. But we see it as a dangerous virus spreading bellicosity and thriving on it.  Also it is obvious that the closer it comes to our borders the more dangerous it could become. Russia crushed all European coalitions trying to defeat Russia – the last led by Napoleon and Hitler. But we do not want another war. Even if not on our territory.” – Sergei A. Karaganov


#UkraineCrisis

On March 17, 2011 the UNSC meet and passed Resolution 1973 which authorized the establishment of a No-Fly zone over Libya.

NATO countries abused this resolution to launch military aggression against Ghaddafi. Not only was a sitting African Head of State executed like a dog by NATO-armed goons, the county was bombed into the Stone Age!

While countries like China and Russia abstained, Nigeria, Gabon and South Africa VOTED in favor.

We were never told what the West promised them to make Jonathan and Zuma to make them cast their votes against an African brother. It was rumored that both countries were sold the dummy of a UNSC permanent seat. Of course, the naive and imbecilic leaders didn’t ask for written agreements from a people who have proved to be duplicitous and agreement-incapable!

Fast forward to March 2022, many African countries, once again, lined up to vote with the West in their fight with Russia!

Like obedient and mindless children, our misrulers keep on craving to please the Masters!

The question is: what logic exactly informed this unwavering and unconditional African support for the West, whenever or wherever it chooses to pick up a fight?

Another question: Why is it impossible for Africa to learn to delineate and fight for its own interests?

If the West ask for our diplomatic support, we should develop the sense to ask for something in return, like the writing off of our crippling debt, or removing the barriers to our exports, or to withdraw their killing machines from our continent, or ask that France abandon its notorious Pacte Coloniale.

Commentary of the Ukrainian Crisis

#Ukrainecrisis

International Community: The sanctions will cripple the Russian economy.

Alaye: I think that you got your maths all wrong. There’s simply no power on earth that can cripple Russia.

It’s only those who didn’t know much history who will fail to understand that Russians were built to overcome obstacles. They have confronted and overcame much more superior powers than the puny NATOstans, with their overpriced and overrated military.

Let’s begin from the basics. Aside from the fact that the biggest economy on earth, China, is standing firmly behind Russia, the second biggest country population-wise, which is India, is also an ally. Brazil, Turkey (a NATO ally), Saudi Arabia, Egypt, even America’s closest ally, Israel, all refused to sanction or vote against Russia.

It looks like Westerners are too caught up in that their self-generated sense of self-importance that they continue to play Poker with a Chess Grandmaster.

It beggars belief that some people will actually believe that Russia would have failed to calculate the hysterical Western response to its action in Ukraine.

Come on, Russia has among the best academies in the world. Anyone who is not caught up in knee-jerk emotional illusions and delusions will know that Russia made the decision to break away with the West about three years ago, when V. Putin outdoored his latest weapons, which put Russia two or three generations away from the archaic military hardware the USA and NATO chariot around the world to menace weaker countries.

Of course, Western experts and analysts all dismissed the Russian leader’s claims.

Sadly, what goes for analyses in the West today are subpar with what great Geopolitical Strategists like Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Kennan etc put forward to counter their adversaries.

The result clearly shows in the uncoordinated, fliflop, imbecilic and confounding reactions of the West to what they considered Putin’s provocation. The debacle in Afghanistan also belie policies that were devoid of intellectual foundations.

This lack of preparation on the part of the West is why we are treated to the EU foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, calling on China to mediate in Russia’s war against Ukraine.

“There is no alternative. We [Europeans] cannot be the mediators, that is clear … And it cannot be the US either. Who else? It has to be China, I trust in that,” Borrell said in an interview with the Spanish newspaper El Mundo.

But Borrell, who is from Spain, admitted that there were no firm plans by the warring sides and their supporters for outside mediation from China.” – Source: SCMP

Having talked themselves sillily into a corner, the West is left with no other option to call on a China that they have spent the last years in berating and lecturing to come to their aid as they battle another self-created ogre – few people remember today that Putin started his first presidency by expressing a desire to joint the EU – Link: “Russia is part of the European culture. And I cannot imagine myself in isolation from Europe and what we often called the civilized world.” – V. Putin, https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/nov/04/ex-nato-head-says-putin-wanted-to-join-alliance-early-on-in-his-rule

Sorry for going on in that round about way to answer your question. But to reply your assertion directly: I think that Mr. Putin is either being too polite or he didn’t want to get distracted from dealing decisively with the wannabe Nazis the West installed at his doorsteps, otherwise he would have taken countermeasures that will make Europe bleed and the sue for peace immediately.

Do people forget that apart from aluminum and steel which many European companies rely on to stay in business, Russia supplies 40% of the EU gas, 30% of the crude oil and about 40% of the EU’s fertilizer?

Those are even the minor things that V. Putin can bring into play to inflict pains on Europe.

The West has, rather foolishly, prematurely imploded its touted nuclear option of disconnecting Russia from SWIFT, the Chinese promptly negated it with its CIPS.

That in itself was a very stupid move as Europeans still must pay for Russian oil and gas and fertilizer, and they must still expect to also get paid for the goods and services they supplied to Russia.

The interesting question here is: what happens if Russia decided to explode its own nuclear option?

No, I do not mean nuclear weapons. Putin can decide to nationalize all Western investment in his country. And that’s just the teaser.

We all know that the only advantage the West has over the rest of us is its well-promoted Technology.

What will the West do if Russia decide to appropriate its Technologies?

If pushed to the wall, what is there to stop V. Putin from deciding to stop recognizing Western Patents? Not only that, he can also decide to task Russian engineers to reverse-engineers all Western technologies. And to compound things, Russia can put all of them in the public domain to be copied by all and sundry.

That WILL WIPE OUT the entire Western economy. The saddest part is that, apart from yelping like excited Chihuahuas, there’s absolutely nothing the West can do about it short of igniting a nuclear war which will put an end to life as we know it.

I am truly appalled by the pathetically low level of thinking among Western leaders and “experts.”

Why do people ever imagine that Russia will allow its economy to be destroyed without crashing the whole world economy?

If only people will lower the infantile hysterics and begin to think properly.
