The Russo-Chinese "Alliance" Revisited

Self-Destruction.

No, no, not self-destruction of Adam Schiff--the man has no honor nor any other redeeming human qualifies and is basically a low life. There is nothing human left in him to destruct. To come up with this: that Russians "love" 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution because Russians would love nothing better than Americans killing each-other--this has no name. 


This is America's self-destruction. It is a complete moral and psychiatric implosion unparalleled in US history. It is a complete certifiable madness. This madness originates with Obama Administration, HRC, Democratic Party and RINOs, together with rogue elements in the so called Intelligence Community and US mainstream mass media. This cabal of hysterical psychopaths will throw under the bus everything else what is left good in America and will risk a war if needed, just to cover up what they were up to trying to remove President Trump as lawfully elected POTUS. Russia is a perfect, in their mind, enemy which is supposed to "unify" the nation. Anything goes as long as this smoke-screen obscures the real deal of State Treason which is being still perpetrated in a fight for America's future, any future. 

If they "win", the United Sates will be eventually turned into completely totalitarian state (it is happening already) with brainwashed population and further descent into the third world hell-hole status. Obviously, Russia will be blamed for that. Eventually 9-11 will be blamed on Russia, the same as Challenger disaster and this time is very near. 


As I predicted:

 
I am beginning to suspect that these morons are ready for a Hot War and it is not surprising--all their life they served only their own interests and looked down at deplorables as mere obstacle on their way to absolute power. Add here that most of them never served a day in uniform and have no grasp of what violence, let alone warfare, can bring in the face of many of them qualifying perfectly for judicial proceeding which will result in prison sentences--they will be ready for anything. Waiting for Nunes' new Memo, I only hope that he is well protected--I know he is not alone among true American patriots.  

A Curious Poll.

Sputnik, the subsidiary of Ria, has recently conducted an interesting poll (in Russian). Number of Europeans from four EU nations--France, UK, Germany and Poland--were asked a simple question: if Russia is a European Country. Responses are shown in this graph. Since it is in Russian--white numbers (and segments of pie-charts) stand for "Yes", solid color (orange) is for "No", the rest is for "Don't know". 


French turned out to be most decisive in rejecting Russia as a European nation, Britons were second, but it was Germany where Russia, albeit with minimal advantage, is considered to be European, with Poles overwhelmingly viewing Russians as European people. I want to forestall immediately all those "pattern seekers" if they would decide to "see" a purely geography/distance factor as a "pattern". It is not. In the end, geographically France is closer to Russia than UK, yet, it is in France where minimal number of people view Russia as the European nation. 

Russians' response in comments was overwhelmingly predictable and it could be reduced to this: "Yes, we are not "Europeans" in Europe of France and UK." This is precise answer since neither UK nor France are European anymore, unlike, say, Poland and Poles who really do know who they are and what they want. I may disagree with Poles on many geopolitical and history issues, but Poles sure as hell know that they are predominantly white, Christian (Catholic), European people who still treasure their mono-culture and cultural heritage, and this heritage is distinctly European. The "Europe" of France and UK, on the other hand, is a multicultural cloaca, with post-Christian relativist "morality" and dumbed down population which was completely emasculated and racially and culturally deluded. The only things "European" France or UK have left are some architectural places, some graves of Europe's greats and some sweet memories of once cultural and intellectual greatness. That is about it. France is long ago not a whole country--with her South being Islamized with increasing speed. Marseilles is not a French city anymore, it is Islamic Arab crime-ridden shithole, with Paris' suburbs being run by Muslim gangs and it is really preposterous to view France as a "European" nation. Same goes for UK with her own version of post-greatness syndrome and with having no guts to even deal with wide spread pedophilia and wholesale rape of underage girls by Britain's generic "Asian men". I think UK still has many of those undiscovered culturally diverse towns and other localities, so--stay tuned. But with Muhammed being now the most popular boys' name in London, United Kingdom can look with optimism into her even greater even more "European" future.

Germany is a complex case, but Germany has some serious factor which plays for her in a long run, but I will avoid discussing it here. Enough to say that Germany's undisputed claim to European economic dominance can not be sustained with her current cultural (and economic) policies. So, unlike France or UK, Germany will face or is already facing this choice--to continue to be what she is today and, inevitably, fade into the obscurity, or undertake a number of policy-adjustments in order to remain economic (and political) locomotive of Europe. So, I have to agree, in this case, with French and Britons--Russia is NOT a European state in a modern sense, since Russia is European in the most profound European sense, which was rejected by France and UK. As Edurad Limonov succinctly observed recently, it is Russia which is a real West today. I can only quote myself here:

Until this geopolitical fact is understood and internalized, that Marseilles, London or Brussels are not Europe anymore, no serious discussion on Pan-European Entente is possible. This is not to mention European limitrophes such as Poland, Baltic States or even Sweden who in their Russo-phobic insanity will do their utmost to impede such a discussion.
In the end, it is not enough that St.Petersburg features constantly in all public (such as Trip Advisor) Top 10 European tourist destinations, St.Petersburg is actually officially recognized as Europe's Best Tourism Destination. Again. If you get my drift. In the end, Russian Police, unlike its French counterpart, doesn't flee armed mobs, it shoots back and gets it under control and restores the order--that is why Russian cities, especially large ones, are safe. In the end, one has to see St. Petersburg, or Moscow, or Sochi, or returning back to life Sevastopol and Crimea, or Vladivostok, or visit Peterhof to understand why Russians do not care about the place once known as Europe--because they can say I am Russian and be proud of it, especially in the place which was never conquered.

Harry J. Kazianis Really Needs A Muscle Relaxant.

Remember a couple of years ago I posted this thing?

Run To The Hills, The US Military Is Doomed. No, Wait...

Well, nobody anymore denies a set of very real force structure, readiness, technological and operational problems and challenges US military faces. After all--a lot has happened in the last two years, not least strategically but I still stand by my assertion:

1. US Armed Forces still remain the most potent force in the world, especially US Navy
2. American soldiers and sailors are among the best in the world. 
I periodically browse The National Interest to mostly get a chuckle or two and, if I am lucky, to catch some redeeming (for TNI) and competent thoughts of Lt.Colonel Daniel Davies. Today I stumbled upon  Harry Kazianis' a pearl of a strategic thought titled in a good tabloid tradition of TNI:


I don't know what American military "experts" mean when they talk about "WAR" but instead of writing some long text Kazianis could have limited himself to a two very simple points:

1. Non-nuclear war (controlled escalation to a threshold)  between China and US in the air has 50-50 percent chances of either side "winning" in China's vicinity.

2. The same, but naval confrontation... and here, with all my deep respect to Chinese culture and strides in modernization, PLAN is simply NOT a competitor to US Navy beyond the First Island Chain and the issue has NOTHING to do with a number of DDGs or CBGs. The issue is plain and simple THIS:


To be a real contender--one MUST have a world-class nuclear attack submarine component and here the US Navy holds an overwhelming superiority over anything PLAN has both quantitatively and, most importantly, qualitatively in its nuclear power sub inventory. Yes, PLAN did declare recently on a number of occasions that its newest SSNs in terms of quieting begin to catch up to first versions of Project 971 Akula and Los-Angles-class SSNs. But quieting, while being very important, is just one of many things which are required for a nuclear sub to be a true killer weapon. Once fleet gets away from A2/AD zones controlled by modern SSKs which guarantee against penetration of something like Virginia-class SSNs, such fleet will require a top-notch SSN, SSGN escort--PLAN doesn't have this. Plain and simple. There are also some very serious issues with Chinese ASW. 

Yes, China may (MAY) hold an advantage deep within First Island Chain over US Navy and she may even increase this advantage but PLAN has no realistic way of surviving US Navy's nuclear subs in any remote or blue water zone. But Russia is not selling her Project 885 Severodvinsk nor is sharing with whatever work is being done on what is known today as Husky unified SS(G)N--SSBN platform. Here, China will have to develop a true competitive technology on her own. Doing so in nuclear power submarines field is immensely difficult, expensive and it takes time. And while amateurs point their sights towards US Navy's visually impressive CVNs, currently what dooms PLAN and completely prevents it from any serious challenge to US Navy in a remote ocean zone is underwater and is not heard or seen.  

On the other hand, any land combined arms war against China in her vicinity will see US Army decimated and ultimately ground to a halt or defeated in a conventional conflict, no matter what advantages US has. No matter if a Chinese Army is "unprofessional" as Kazianis states, since Chinese will be fighting for their motherland, which US military "professionals" never did in their life and that changes a lot. So, the only thing which comes from this is a need to really find some kind of peaceful arrangement between big kids on the block. No matter how good is US Navy, and it is, despite its problems, a magnificent force, the United States is not in a position anymore to dictate anything to anybody as it was the case 20 years ago. This time is simply gone.

On Florida Atrocity, A Thought.

Remember Allen Armentrout? Remember this kid with Confederate Flag and uniform? 


I may not condone what Confederacy stood for but here is the kid who already, in his young age, is a Man, a real man and he doesn't even look like what became an image of a "man" in modern day America. The kid is overweight, doesn't wear cool gadgets, doesn't wear a douche-bag beard or narrow sunglasses, but I would go with this kid into battle anytime. He took upon himself to make not an easy choice of facing a crowd of deranged SJW imbeciles and stood his ground. That is what defines a real man. Not some physical features, not how cool one looks or how much money one makes, or how many sluts he nailed down--but only by what decisions and responsibilities a man takes. 

I saw in my life the most unremarkable, run-of-the-mill guys, who wouldn't pass for "anybody" in modern American culture, doing things and exhibiting fortitude and heroism as if it was a normal thing. That is what makes a man. A famous Russian meme was circulating for a while around the net.

It Seems We Started To Forget How The Real Man Should Look Like
You may ask what this has anything to do with the atrocity against school kids in Florida two days ago? It has everything to do with it. I am heartbroken for kids, I cannot even conceive what agony their parents are going through--the worst nightmare of any parent, to lose a child. Yet, it doesn't matter how heartbroken I am, there is  also no denial that mass-executions of school children in US, starting from a nightmare in Columbine HS, are becoming now almost a routine. A terrifying routine. Obviously the United States is not alone in this horrifying statistics, but it is namely in the US where those massacres have become an expected occurrence and they are massive. And here is what I think about it. No, this is not the issue of a gun control--it is the issue of an American culture which was feminized to a dangerous degree. 

Ask yourself a question, what is this--a planned execution of the unarmed innocent kids? Is there a term which applies to this insanity OTHER than traditional mental illness of perpetrators, most of whom, somehow always seem to be very rational in planning and carrying out their evil deeds? Hardly a sign of mental illness. The answer to that which I have is very simple--they throw a tantrum. They snap and then in one form or another carry out their (always "justified") rage against innocent. The reason for that being that meaning of what it is to be a real man has been completely removed from the American culture by ultra-liberal feminazi establishment which fights any manifestation of a real manhood, since sees it as a threat to itself. In some sense, many (not all) American males' infatuation with "military porn", American football and, to a degree, weapons is often an obverse side of an almost total emasculation of, at least, American urban so called male population. Real men do not kill innocent.

Football, most of them dumb-asses, players are viewed as a visual representations of gladiators of the 21st century, military porn and action flicks most of which today wouldn't pass even the lowest of the lowest standards for realism and any rudimentary story logic, the same as masturbatory attitudes by many towards weapons--all of this is an obverse side of emasculation which reigns supreme in a large swaths of an American male universe. Truth, however, is very simple: real men do not have "anger issues", real men control their emotions, real men treat women (not some deranged cunts) with respect and never allow violence, and real men, most importantly know how to face and live with the consequences of their actions. They do not become Metrosexuals. It is this foundation  on which people such as Major Filipov or Allen Armentrout grow. It is precisely this foundation which increasingly being substituted in the US with feminazi notion that throwing a tantrum, being everything about me-me-me and me being the center of the universe, is the only normal way to handle anything which one doesn't like. It is a radically anti real man notion. Come to think about it--it is not even real woman notion. Exhibitionism--a driving force behind radical (I stress--radical) feminism is also in the foundation of those young murderers' insatiable desire to become famous, to surpass each-other in the number of innocent executed victims. This is a radical anti-man notion. Real men do things for a duty and honor, not for the part in a commercial. That is why often true heroes go unnamed or unnoticed. Throw in an overall virtual and real violence of an American culture--and you get the portrait of an average American school mass-murderer: an emasculated pathetic loser ready to throw a tantrum because most of them do not have any concept of what it means to be a real man, or, in a larger sense a real human. Current American culture almost completely denies this option for youngsters. That is what new generation is being drown into:
         


But that is just one my thought, a very subjective one, on this whole tragedy. Guns, of course, will always be blamed and a lot of fake concerns and tears will be paraded around by the American media clowns, who, of course, always know everything and contributed mightily to this degenerating culture of emasculation, self-entitlement and self-obsession. Real men need not apply.
