*** EVERYTHING THE WEST TOUCHES TURNS TO SHIT ***
“Ukraine. What is the truth...?
Why won’t western media tell both sides…?”
VIRTUALLY UNREPORTED ATROCITY IN LUGANSK, 2nd JUNE 2014
A lot has been said about atrocities in the western media claimed to have been perpetrated by the Russians, for example at Bucha and Mariupol among others. These assertions are conveyed on the say so of the Ukrainian authorities. How willing though are western news broadcasters to convey atrocities attributed to the Ukrainians? The following will I think provide the answer.
If anyone wonders if they are receiving accurate coverage of the conflict in Ukraine I would suggest watching the video below of an event which occurred on the 2nd of June 2014 and ask themselves if they recall hearing about it on any mainstream media news channel at the time.
The video is harrowing to watch. The bodies (five women and three men) are real. Yet across western media there was only one single news report that occurred a day later. This was from CNN and occurred only because a CNN team happened to be nearby at the time of the atrocity and so the network could hardly ignore it as all others so obviously did.
The video below shows the unvarnished truth that was not considered newsworthy in western mainstream news.
THE SINGLE WESTERN MSM REPORT ON THE LUGANSK ATROCITY, 3rd JUNE 2014
The video at the CNN link below is the crime scene sanitised by CNN, though played straight with honest reporting on the scene not playing things to Kiev’s tune.
(There was a time early in the war in the Donbass when CNN were not afraid to contradict the Ukrainian regime in Kiev.) Watch because it's the first and last time you will see this.
5 women and 3 men died, all civilians.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
BRUCE FEIN: The U.S. is a BELLIGERENT STATE.
Article published by Russia Today (RT) - 10th March 2023:
Fyodor Lukyanov: As another ex-Soviet state is gripped by violent protests, is a Ukraine-style coup on the cards?
A violent change of power is unlikely, but the current tensions expose the weaknesses in the country’s political system.
The entire modern history of Georgia, dating back to the late 1980s, is a chronicle of temperamental lurches towards change. These consist of chaotic attempts at implementation, followed by work to stabilize the situation and build a sturdy state structure, before a new cycle begins. Each time there are objective socio-political preconditions for these perturbations, which are overlaid by both domestic and external factors.
At home: Excessive personalization of politics and an obsession with certain leaders at each stage – Zviad Gamsakhurdia (1991-1992), Eduard Shevardnadze (1995-2003), Mikhail Saakashvili (2004-2013), and Bidzina Ivanishvili (de-facto leader for the past decade). Outside influence: A real, or perhaps fictitious, struggle for influence between Russia and the West.
This time it’s notionally about the government’s attempt to introduce a ‘foreign agents’ law, which the opposition claims is very close to similar rules imposed in Russia. But the root of the issues goes far deeper.
The problem with the current government is that it has attempted to adopt a detached, neutral stance in a situation of increasing international instability, by reducing the grand gestures previously associated with Georgian politics. Its assertion that it’s protecting its own people from the costs of a spreading foreign military-political crisis is legitimate. However, in the main, the crisis is acute and involves a growing number of actors who demand certainty. Secondly, the game of detachment presupposes strong internal (power) and external (recognition by the elites of the right to a certain sovereignty) positions. In other words, to insist on a ‘third way’ while being at the center of things you have to be Turkey, or at least Hungary.
Georgia is not like these countries, because the political identity under all regimes has been built on the desire to join ‘the West’, by almost any means possible. And on any terms. The legitimacy of all authorities has been based on promises of ‘European integration’. Another issue is that Georgia, due to its geographical location (which is transcontinental, and far from the current EU borders), has never really experienced the benefits of this. Nevertheless, this has not prevented alignment with Brussels from being proclaimed as a goal and even as a means to an end.
The attempt to withdraw from EU diktats is now perceived as a betrayal of ‘European ideals’, which involve self-sacrifice. Moldova is an example of ‘correct’ European (sic) behavior, while the ‘wrong’ type is being exhibited by Georgia. Accordingly, internal pressure from a restive minority is backed up by external pressure from the EU and US.
They claim that the government is colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin, as former Western-favorite Saakashvili languishes in prison. The fact that Moscow’s influence, in this case, is completely fictitious is irrelevant. The Russian issue is too deeply embedded in Georgia’s political consciousness.
A Maidan-style overthrow of the authorities is unlikely; there are no real hardline forces, such as those seen in Kiev, in the opposition. The main front now will be external – EU and US pressure to force Tbilisi to abandon neutrality and the authorities’ ability (or inability) to evade it. Their resources are limited.

SUPPORTING SCOTT RITTER
I've been listening to Scott Ritter describe how things are for him and I suspect have been for him for quite some time now.
He has been doing a LOT of unpaid work with a great many interview requests coming in that he has been ready and willing to agree to. But the work where receives some pay for have suffered due to this, being left until the wee small hours of the night to complete work on.
Scott, I think you will agree, has been one of the most influential voices out there on Russia and Ukraine.
I was moved by Scott's words to take an annual subscription to his Substack account that he runs in coordination with his colleague on 'U.S. Tour of Duty', Jeff Norman. This is the main way that Scott recommends to help him with finances with which to upgrade his delivery of comment on Russia and Ukraine, via a better microphone etc. and perhaps the creation of a recording studio in his basement to create a more professional and impressive look. To invest in these things he would like to be sure that this has a viable financial future.
Would you also like to help by subscribing at one of the various levels to Scott's Substack account? I hope so. If so the link is here:
Below you'll find the edited part of the video where Scott talks of his commitments to get the facts out on events in Ukraine and of the finances that would come in handy to enhance their delivery:
VICTORY BELONGS TO RUSSIA: IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME
Each day that passes makes a conclusive Russian victory in the Donbass and beyond more certain. As Russia bolsters her forces, and weaponry, those of Ukraine decrease. Russian forces gain ready access to rest and recuperation as troop numbers increase. The increasingly exhausted and demoralised Ukrainian troops have an ever decreasing prospect of such respite. This situation is likely to bring them to complete breakdown as Russia unleashes the firepower of the more modern and advanced weaponry that is arriving with the newly mobilised Russian troops.
The various Ukrainian offensives are now weak when confronted by the reinforced Russian lines. A few futile efforts achieve quite miserable results before fire reigns down on the Ukrainian troops and they are forced back to their starting positions.
And now, all this being said, we have arrived at the wet, and later, freezing conditions where these pathetic Ukrainian forces will be subject to myriad forms of abject misery with death and injury all around them while they lie sodden or frozen, abandoned to their fate by Kiev.
The pitiable young and old of Ukraine have been frogmarched to their deaths as cannon-fodder while the bestial elites of the collective West urge their "president" to add more to their number there at the gates of Hell and their doom. We must feel for the majority of them as they are not the Nazis we revile, in most part they are decent men, fathers, sons, brothers, husband and uncles, who no doubt saw through the coup of 2014 for what it was. But sadly, their fate seems sealed.
Nothing will stop Russia now. Every factor favours them. Victory will be Russia's. In Donbass and beyond and in due course across the world.

BIDEN: ‘WHAT ME WORRY?’ AS THE WORLD RISKS GOING UP IN FLAMES
The world is going about its business as normal. At least within the confines of the ‘new normal’. There appears to be little concern about the imminent future normal that could be unleashed at any moment, heralded by a distant, or not so distant, mushroom cloud, flash in the sky and a sudden devastating wave of death that washes over those in range.
We’d rather not think in these terms of course, we carry on as normal, that normal we assume will be here again tomorrow and the next day and the next… But we are no longer where we were as a world. Things have changed radically as a result of events in Ukraine that were brought to boiling point without anyone turning down the heat.
The very heat that was turned up under Russia caused it to explode across eastern Ukraine with flashpoints all across it where missiles strike. That heat is beginning to be felt across Europe and even extends to the USA. And still those who fanned the flames continue to do so. They stand with hoses filled not with water but gasoline. And who is the lead fireman? That man over there with a confused look on his face, gray hair who tends to stumble around on each stage he frequents issuing garbled version of what he reads on the latest teleprompter.
Those who carry on with their lives believing things are still relatively normal may be in for a shock. And this for many reasons. Not least of which is that Ukrainian military radicals are firing shells at the largest nuclear power plant in Europe. But it’s not the Russians they are firing at, it’s the refrigeration unit of the plant that keeps the nuclear fuel being used cool. With that fact fully registered in the gray matter of those reading I would defy anyone to continue believing things are anywhere ‘normal’.
The above is serious enough. But you may say that even if the resulting disaster is a little worse than Chernobyl it will be manageable and relatively local. We’d get over it. If this is how you feel I’m afraid there is still more bad news.
Expert opinion has it that neither Russia nor the USA can afford to lose in Ukraine. That if one or the other comes close to being resoundingly defeated the one on the losing end would be very tempted to unleash the ultimate weapon to remedy matters. We seem to have suddenly hit a crisis that far overshadows that which historians have long claimed to be the closest humanity ever came to destruction, the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Back in late 1962 there were at least some statesmen in the USA truly worthy of the name. Wise and sober heads who saw the potential for disaster for humankind in what was happening and who sought through dialogue to reduce tension through dialogue. Thankfully for the rest of us lines of communication were established and an agreement fleshed out involving both sides backing off. The intensity of the diplomacy at the time matched the imminence of the danger.
Not so now. Now those who have been charged with the security of the USA stand with folded arms and mouths shut tight (except to issue aggressive statements further fuelling the fire). Instead of seeking to diminish tensions, by reducing the ever-rising pressure through recommending talks they instead play the blame game and stoke the fire to greater heights by providing ever-more weapons.
This cannot possibly end well.
Every few days thousands die and are horrendously injured. Ever more Ukrainian cannon-fodder is forcibly recruited and sent to the front to die. The tempo of Russian movements that will further decimate the population of Ukraine is gathering pace while the USA and its European allies urge the Ukrainian authorities onward… clearly enthusiastic to see the fighting go on to the very last Ukrainian.
The desperation now of those Ukrainian authorities is clear. First they began indiscriminately shelling an entire city almost totally devoid of any military personnel. This they did with the usual methods of mortar shells and missiles. Then they distributed thousands of tiny petal mines across the city, onto random sidewalks and parks where children play. These tiny explosive devices, anti-personnel mines generally only kill pets, cats and dogs. Humans they can only maim, blowing gaping holes in feet and legs.
The desperation shown above however is nothing compared to the daily Ukrainian attacks on the largest nuclear plant in Europe near the city of Enerhodar on the Dnieper River.
While all this goes on western mainstream media continues its one sided narrative which excludes any mention of what Russian authorities may say. This stance has prevailed since 2014 when the ongoing crisis seen now began to unfold in Ukraine’s capital where violence trumped democracy with a little help from the USA and European capitals. They say it is far more important to talk with your enemies than it is to your friends. But where can we find leaders willing to hear such sense today?
The general attitude among western leaders is that the fight must go on until Russia is defeated, that more and more weapons must be poured into Ukraine without any mention of peace talks until some final great battle ensues.
The problem is that the great battle they hope with their gamble now being played to the bitter end… may be the last the world ever sees, not because peace has suddenly broken out, but because the world we knew is in pieces and ‘normal’ will never be seen again.
