This is what happens when a bunch of ragged hyenas, jackals and tiny rodents poke The Bear: a new geopolitical order is born in breathtaking speed.
From a dramatic meeting of the Russian Security Council to a history lesson delivered by President Putin and the subsequent birth of the Baby Twins – the People’s Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk – all the way to their appeal to President Putin to intervene militarily to expel the NATO-backed Ukrainian bombing-and-shelling forces from Donbass, it was a seamless process.
The (nuclear) straw that (nearly) broke the Bear’s back – and forced its paws to pounce – was Zelensky the Comedian, back from the Russophobia-drenched Munich Security Conference where he was hailed like a Messiah, saying that the 1994 Budapest memorandum should be revised and Ukraine should be nuclear-rearmed.
That would be the equivalent of a nuclear Mexico south of the Hegemon.link
Western powers pushed Putin too far, He was left with no choice but the KOBK move. USA betrayed Russia by reneging on the Reagan-Gorbachev agreement not to encroach on Russia’s borders in exchange for dismantling the Soviet Union. US bioweapons labs in Ukraine and Central Asia are further major provocations. From Putin’s point of view, USA is and has been acting like a corrupt and pompous graduate of Klaus Schwab’s “young leaders” school, a Gavin Newsom or Justin Trudeau high on vanity & free champagne. Austin has ruined our military with his ideological vaccine mandate and trashy diversity training and replacement of real warriors. Domestic policies under Resident Obiden need no restatement. Higher prices for oil and gas only help Putin. ABN
