War! There’s No Time to Think. Comply

"How does this help us, the plebes who have been curb-stomped non-stop for two years?"

FYI: Your government is actively trying to kill you. If you haven’t figured that out yet.

First, a warm welcome to the (many) new readers who found this blog from my recent guest appearance on the Corbett Report. (Thank you again to James for the invite—truly, an honor and a privilege.) For newcomers who might be interested, here’s an article outlining why this blog exists; and here’s a post I typed up which includes some background info about myself.

I also want to apologize for my less than stellar output lately. It’s been an unusual week. I hope to return to my usual schedule (at least one article per day) in the nearest future.

So. The war. Or the special military operation. Or the peacekeeping mission. Whatever you want to call it: what the heck is going on in Ukraine?

Below are a few thoughts.

You can’t say “war”! That’s a no-no!

In Russia, it’s officially against the rules to describe what is happening in Ukraine as a “war.” The government’s media nanny, Roskomnadzor, has prohibited Russian news outlets from disseminating information “in which the ongoing operation is called an attack, invasion, or a declaration of war.” Furthermore, media organizations are required to only use “official sources of the Russian Federation” when reporting on the war—sorry, not war.

This reminds me of when “soft” lockdowns were announced in Moscow and other cities in late October—right around the time when the Russian government began aggressively pushing QR codes. Except these weren’t lockdowns! They were “non-working days” (source: Vladimir Putin), “epidemiological holidays” (source: deputy mayor of Moscow Anastasia Rakova), “unplanned vacations”, and “home mode” (source: Moscow mayor Sergey Sobyanin). Home mode!

Look: call this war whatever you want to call it. Edward Slavsquat’s official policy is to always call it a war, forever. We’re simply obliged to do so now.

Stop pretending war was the “only choice.” It was heretical to even whisper about it a week ago

I’m impressed by how quickly The Incredulous 5D Russia Blogs went from “Russian will NOT attack Ukraine! Only a fool would suggest something so ridiculous!” to “THIS WAS THE ONLY CHOICE, PUTIN IS A JUDO BLACKBELT GENIUS.”

Read the recent prophesies of your favorite Russia Analyst. Were there any pro-Putin pundits who argued Russia was preparing to strike and that this was a wise and prudent idea? Practically none. Possibly zero. Anti-Empire.com is the only “alt media” outlet I’m aware of that repeatedly pointed out there was ample evidence to suggest Russia was planning something completely unprecedented. And there was no moralizing or judgement—it was simply an evidence-based observation.

Remember when it was heretical to even suggest Russia might attack Ukraine? Now you are automatically a 5D chess grandmaster if you cheer for this war—sorry, “not-war.”

What changed between then (heretical!) to now (big-brain 5D chess move)? Not much—apart from a series of embarrassing and cringe false flags and staged attacks cooked up by the FSB. But it made for exciting state-controlled television-viewing.

What about the shelling in Donbass? Let’s talk about this.

Eight years of genocide

I’ve been in Donetsk. I’ve spoken with sobbing old women and shell-shocked children who were desperate for help. They just wanted the madness to stop, whatever it took.

Mind you—this was in 2015.

When the Kremlin talks about “eight years of genocide” my only response is: “And? Where were you?

If you think that’s an offensive question to ask let me assure you that plenty of Donbass residents asked very similar questions when I spoke with them seven years ago.

Your humble Moscow correspondent inspects a shelled building in Donbass. In 2015. Seven years ago.

Nobody even liked the Minsk agreements. These accords essentially called for the breakaway republics to return to Ukraine—best case scenario as semi-autonomous. But wait, why would the people of Donbass submit to a government that is trying to “genocide” them? That’s wacky.

The Kremlin is playing a very cynical game here.

You can’t have it both ways. You can’t say: “The Donbass republics should negotiate with Kiev—one of our main trading partners—with the aim of rejoining Ukraine” and then after eight years declare: “this is an illegitimate western-backed neo-Nazi regime that is committing genocide and we will forcibly remove these freaks.” You can’t say that after eight years. That’s insane.

It’s one or the other. You can’t conduct trade with Ukraine for eight years and then randomly one day decide it’s time to intervene militarily because Kiev is a den of genocidal neo-Nazis. How does that work, exactly?

Donbass was once teeming with well-armed gentlemen who didn’t want to take orders from Kiev or Moscow. They all got blowed up.

The breakaway republics are now led by card-carrying members of Russia’s depraved and completely corrupted Uniparty. Finally, it is time to act.

If you think this war—sorry, not-war—will lead to a brighter tomorrow, let me remind you of what Lugansk rebel commander Aleksey Mozgovoy observed—a few months before he was assassinated in May 2015:

I’d like to appeal to everyone who is fighting—on both sides. People on both sides are fighting against the oligarchy. But somehow we only kill each other, ourselves. So we’re committing a slow suicide of sorts.

The “gladiators” need to break out from the “Colosseum”. Instead, a new Colosseum is being organized. We’re burying ourselves. Do we need it all? War for the sake of war? It’s stupid.

Does anyone remember why we have rebelled? Isn’t it clear that the ones we rose up against are ruling us now? For both sides. Isn’t it time for us to come to our senses, military gentlemen? Otherwise, there won’t be a single one of us left.

And the ones we should be fighting against…they will be living on. Without problems. And everything’s going to be as it was before.

So I appeal one more time: start thinking. Your brain should be working, not your grenade launcher. That’s when there will be order. While the guns are working, there will only be deaths.

If only we listened. It’s probably too late now, unfortunately.

NATO says thank you!

On top of all this, I don’t even know where to begin when people claim what is happening in Ukraine will increase Russian “security.”

I guarantee that NATO’s high command snorted 10 mountains of cocaine after Russian tanks crossed the border. They’re elated. They couldn’t be happier.

We’re talking about a dinosaur-age “defensive” alliance that has never done anything defensive in its entire existence. It’s a fossilized arms-dealing extortion racket run by actual degenerates.

This useless organization—truly, the world’s top parasite—can now point to videos of Russian tanks zooming towards Kiev and say “see? You need us.”

Just to be very clear: what’s happening in Ukraine does nothing to undermine or disrupt NATO, and everything to give this criminal gang a reason to exist.

I’m not saying this is logical. I’m not saying it’s just or fair. It just is.

NATO was probably a booster shot away from dying from myocarditis. But now the scam will continue—probably until we’re all dead.

The Russian government is not “different”

As I wrote hours after hostilities broke out, I seriously doubt that the “de-Nazification” of Ukraine is a top priority for the Kremlin considering the Russian government, just like every other government, is carrying out Nazi-like medical experiments on their own population.

Just look at the Nazi-like crimes against humanity that were taking place days before Russia’s “de-Nazification” campaign in Ukraine began.

On February 10, media reported that a military cadet was trying to teach himself to walk again after being coerced into taking Russia’s unproven genetic slurry.

Don’t worry, Russia is different.

From his message on Instagram:

I’m 20 years old, I still have my whole life ahead of me. The worst thing for me is to tie my parents’ and relatives’ hand and foot. For life with a disabled person is a conscious choice and acceptance of a number of restrictions, which I think you yourself understand. That is why I will die in training to free my parents from this heavy burden. Over the past 11 months I have been to several rehabilitation centers. I never thought that there were so many disabled people in our country. I am so offended that our government absolutely does not care about these ‘second-class’ people. No conditions have been created for these people and they are forced to simply exist.

A post shared by Кирилл Беспалько (@kirill.495)

Two days later, on February 12:

Russia is different.

These are just two reports I found from February. In a country with zero post-vaccination transparency; in a country where it’s against the law to call the state-sponsored violence in Ukraine a “war.”

The Russian government is the greatest threat to the Russian people, just as the British government is the greatest threat to the British people, and the German government is the greatest threat to the German people; probably the Eskimo government is currently the #1 killer of the Eskimos.

People get so butthurt about this obvious reality and I honestly have no idea why.

It’s 2022. Did you forget what they’ve done to us?

“Another step in the same direction”

What has fundamentally changed? All I see is more stress and uncertainty for the average plebe, not to mention huge pressure to conform to war (sorry, not-war) hysteria—on both “sides.”

And we haven’t even talked about the economic devastation. Which will be considerable. For everyone.

How does this help us, the plebes who have been curb-stomped non-stop for two years?

I will close with some observations made by Russian blogger Anatoly Nesmiyan:

The war gives the criminals who killed millions of people around the world an opportunity to take a breath—now questions about those crimes against the backdrop of new horrors look completely irrelevant.

Not only that: the war allows you to restart the project of further transformation of the world order. And with the same toolkit, you don’t need to change or adapt anything.

The task of the “pandemic” was to force people to exchange personal rights and freedoms for security. Now everything remains as before: the world is in danger, the Russians are advancing, so let’s unite. There is no time to think, it is necessary to comply with the decisions of the authorities. Otherwise we will all die. Another step in the same direction.

In this sense, Putin is an ideal instrument for moving to the next stage, and for this reason alone, no one needs to stop him. Come on, Vlad! We believe in you! …

War is an ideal way to close past accumulated contradictions and clear the building site for new achievements. And that’s why no one is interested in a peaceful resolution of this conflict. With the exception of people, of course, but who cares about them, especially if they are already condemned to extermination by the “new normal”?

It is what it is.

    When the Kremlin talks about “eight years of genocide” my only response is: “And? Where were you?
    I think you asked the wrong question // where was you and the USA and the EU when Ukraine murdered there their own people
    Did you also forgot that Ukraine refused to speak to these people // that Peroshecko was proud to tell that there children shall go to school // but that the children of those (there own Ukraine) people shall hide be in the basement
    I think you are a little confused with the facts

    1. Nenad says
      I don't think the author is confusing the facts, I think he's just defending his policy.
      And why didn't the author write an article that talked about the Pentagon Biolabs in Ukraine?
      And not only in Ukraine, but also in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Uzbekistan, Moldova?
      How many citizens of these states have been killed by biological weapons from these American laboratories?
      Should Putin allow the enemy to release some new deadly virus from these labs into Russia?
      And finally, what the hell are American military units looking for in Russia's neighboring states?







      One good article could be written on this topic.
  2. anon says

    I think it plausible the aims of the ‘war’ are to further the coneheads great reset (there are certainly large question marks over the ‘event’)… after all this will more easily accomplish the supply line chaos neccessary to destroy the old ‘systems’..

    Perhaps they haven’t had enough traction with the fake pandemic and are now pivoting to the old standby WAR…

    This little ‘non’ event(sic) may have more sweeping repercussions than WW2… another tapestry of fakery that advanced certain aims for certain people…

    one thing’s for sure.. Europe is going back into the meat -grinder..to make NWO sausage.

    Eddie is a scum squatting in the Slavic lands. A true heir of the squatters we know from the 1917. Like the devil, he appears as an angel of light, while being the father of lying from the beginning. Squatters of his kind have a long history in the Slavic lands, one could argue it is hereditary and he doesn´t know what does he actually do… So what.

    1. Dale says

      He’s right about Putin becoming a Covid bedwetter though.

    2. SteveK9 says

      Calling someone ‘scum’ is not very informative to me.

      1. Peter says

        Then you should read this article to inform yourself. See the nature of his misrepresentations and mis-argumentations. He is a real slime bag, but I guess you were not educated in the manner of Bolshevik argumentation.

  4. ken says

    And while we discuss the [not] war the UN-WHO has contracted with a German corporation for a international QR code passport.

    The fake virus crap isn’t over,,, just moved to the white noise spectrum. The satanic cult that now controls the world just added another great killer of humanity…. war.

    While you’re busy attacking each other on antisocial websites the demons are devising more ways to kill you and laughing at the ease they can manipulate us and control our thinking. Sure, deny this, but go look at every media webpage and note how many articles are on “Ukraine” and “The War”.

    They’re actually using pictures from years old articles to fake you out. Why you would need to do this in a real ‘war’ is a mystery to me.


    They are free to do whatever they want without fear of discovery.

      Forgot a important message from Babylon Bee. Putin receives Nobel Prize for eliminating Covaids plandemic


      Although satire, it makes more sense than anything I have read or seen in media since ” I N V A S I O N!”

  5. JSS says

    Slavsqauts reporting on the flu BS in Russia is 10/10 and he deserves lots of credit on that front. However on this topic so far IDK….maybe he is just too jaded or maybe he just doesn’t have much warmth towards Russia in general…IDK. I’m totally open to the idea that Moscow was behind the assassinations of the iconic commanders from the 2014 war, it indeed would be ridiculous to claim that the Russian government isn’t full of 5th columnist and criminals. In short Russia has all the same problems as the West.

    However if there has been any war that was justly escalated in recent memory it’s this one. I swear it’s like Putin is damned if he does damned if he doesn’t. He is a coward and traitor for not going all in on 2014-15, he is a secret Zionist agent for not declaring war on Turkey and Israel for the killings of Russians in syria. Now he is uniting NATO and making the West stronger by finally dealing with Ukraine. I know Edward has never made those accusations against Putin I used as examples I’m just saying the man can’t please anyone apparently. Personally I haven’t been very big on Putin lately either but in this case I think he is doing the right thing very belatedly.

    I also share most of the anti empire contributors very low opinion on Saker, his takes on Lukashenko were an absolute dumpster fire and his analysis tend to be pretty shallow in general but even he has been saying that eventually Russia would have to take unilateral action in Ukraine. He just thought they wouldn’t actually do it. Maybe he was just covering his bases with that but I too felt Russia didn’t have the balls but I’m
    pleasantly surprised to have been proven wrong.

    Anyway is always gay and a very bad thing however imo and many Donbass residents the war never stopped really. They have been getting blown up for 8 years. You can criticize Russia for throwing around terms like genocide while continuing to trade with Ukraine but perhaps Putin was sincerely hoping by continuing to have as normal relations as possible with Ukraine that the situation might be de-escalated eventually without having to send in the troops? Given Putin’s very pragmatic and cringe worthy attempts at courting good will in the West I think that’s more likely than he was just being cynical and bad because he is Putin. I can totally see FSB killing guys like Motorola, Givi and Zarchenko but are the veterans from 2014 out protesting this escalation because of whatever Edward is writing here or are they on the frontlines?

    I guess the question comes down to do you think the Russian government is capable of doing anything right what so ever. If no than of course you wouldn’t support the current war and if yes you would need to ask yourself is this one of them? Most Russians appear to think the later and imo Slavsquat is going out of his way to find reasons to be a critic.

      However if there has been any war that was justly escalated in recent memory it’s this one.

      You do not start war you have no chance of winning. But you start a war if there is nowhere to retreat. Sun Tzu.

  6. SteveK9 says

    I wanted to believe Russia was different, until vaccine hell started there as well. Sometimes I wish I did not read your reports. I think what you say is true, but I’m not sure I see alternatives in Ukraine. NATO was building military bases there, the population was afraid to criticize the Nazis (true?). Like many people I could not understand why Russia did not act in 2014-5. Explanations (on some other sites) are usually along the lines that Russia acts for Russians and the Ukrainians had no hold on Russia. I am far away from this conflict (an American) but that just seemed cruel and illogical to me. There is another article on this website that postulates that Russia’s goal is to ‘unite the Rus’. It seems plausible to me, but to hesitate for 8 years? Maybe it is logical. I don’t have to make decisions like that.

    1. From the Netherlands says

      I can explain you very easy why it took so much time, his army was not ready; but Mr Putin is a very patient man, now he is ready and will finish what he was not able to do in 2014
      Also I like to speak about another article, where the comedian president made a statement that the Russian special forces are looking for him to kill him
      He not understand that he is the safest man in the world, if Mr Putin should kill him than the USA has the pleasure to put sanctions on Russia till the end of time (so he will never do that)
      He should be more afraid about his American friends from the CIA, maybe they will kill him (false flag) to put sanctions on Russia till the end of time

      1. Flandrien says

        Don’t forget the money, Russia had to bring down their debts to minimize outside interference.

    2. Dale says

      This is so spot-on. Putin’s decline into Covid hysteria shattered any romantic notions of Russia as a bulwark against globalism. That said, I am able to separate all that, from Ukraine, and considering the possibility that Putin’s actions are at least entirely understandable.

    3. guest says

      >>>”hesitate for 8 years”
      The Obama gave them the excuse and opportunity to take Crimea. Then they needed some time to solify their position.
      Then came Trump. (not a chance)
      In one year Biden gave them the excuse and opportunity to take Ukraine.

  7. Sam says

    This war has shat on the renewable transition(try convincing even the woke to not buy coal or wood) and covid stories. Makes me think now there are many like Putin at Davos. They go,smile,take pictures,take part when it suits them,but aren’t 100% in it. Globalists are trying to cancel Russia now basically on all levels. I’m certain this whole event isn’t entirely going to their script. Many nations will see how Russia is getting treated and the world will decentralize,which is good for all of us. I personally think its a blow to the idea of digital money when the risk of someone else taking your money (like all of Russian foreign assets being snatched) when they dont like you is so high.
    Covid was never supposed to end. All measures were permanently supposed to stay. Way too many people sceptic, a majority I think. I am worried by the end of the year a chunk of the world will be in a deep economic recession.

    Until you bring the Jew and their Zionist cryptos, that have snuck their way into every Government from the USA , including back to the Russian Federation – you are pissn in the wind with any synopsis.

    Writing about Russian or USA internal problems , without calling out the Jewish Oligarchs, Globalists, Religious backstabbers, Neocons, Big Pharma influences and/but blaming one lone President named Putin – is sounding a little too – Yale University to me – Edward.

    Fact – Russian Federation is a Globalist Player – like it or not. Which means they play both sides of the street. Just like my old man’s Boss Mayor Daley in Chicago had to play with the Mafia, Feds, Jews, Unions, Blacks in order to keep the City movin and working. Same shit different country.Politics don’t change.

    As an X SE Asia war games participant { probably Ken too} you don’t wait for 50,000 troops to ‘ loiter” on your borders. Especially when they have been funded, trained , armed and promised 100% support by the US MIC, Nato, Israel etc. And Donbas was always part of Russia just like Crimea. Granted 2015 was when the Russian military should have taken care of business- but even Mayor Daley f… up in 68 in Grant Park ‘s Democratic Convention – I was there too.
    So, lets see how this all plays out because calling out Russia for clearing their borders compared to the 10 to 15 million the USA has killed since I was born – is pure BS.

    1. iconoclast says

      considering so many comments are raggin’ on putin for going full covid, i will pose 2 questions. knowing most sites have been infiltrated by the zio-msm, has anyone ever wondered if what they read re: covid/putin could be western b.s.? and…anyone ever consider that perhaps the west’s covid plandemic was a vehicle to further mother russia’s demise via economic & biological warfare?

      1. Dale says

        Occam’s Razor: everyone succumbed to fear, one after another. And Russia suffered the highest excess mortality rate in the world, likely due to the effects of panic, despair, isolation, etc.

      2. GMC says

        Well, Edward has a researched point, about the Russian Gov being a bit too close to Who and Gates and I will agree with him to a certain point but Russians as a whole are a secret keeping people – left over from the Soviet times. Russians won’t ever tell you the whole story- Period.
        As far as the Biolabs – they are/were a very big part of the picture in Russia and Ukraine – except UKraine allowed it to happen, so they should be in the ICC jails. And yes Dilyana Gaytandzhieva did great research on all the labs in East Europe and pointed outthe deaths that occurred around these labs in Ukraine and Russia.

        I will not get down on a President when I think he is doing the right thing during a War, in order to make Russia – safer.

  9. Kointel Killah says

    It’s not a war, it’s regime change, R2P, and nation building all-in-one. Putin is a neoliberalcon, a corona-con variant, a combo-con.

    War Back Better!

  10. Georgette Constable says

    Oh Antoinette, how are you?

  11. Yaga says

    I’m no expert analyst, I don’t even play chess, but on reading the NATO says thank you! section the following argument came to my mind.
    So NATO is a non-danger Putin would be wiser to ignore? What about ex-Yugoslavia? (real w-a-r). And what about NATO morphing into just the Pentagone (as we recently saw the morphing of many “democratic” governments and of the EU into vivacious tyrannies), bypassing all the cute rules?
