Everything is reported by Ukraine, so it’s not the most reliable number.

Judging by Western press coverage of the war, it’s possible that Zelensky is already using the Kremlin as a summer home.

Every week they report Russians surrendering, Russians dying, Russians ran out of fuel, Russians ran out of ammunition, Russians were cold without coats, they ran out of vodka in Russia…

It’s difficult for him to give in, only if the US wants it, he can’t decide anything, other than begging for weapons, money and sending people to die.

Camus is the philosopher definition of first world problems.

I realize that having a degree in police science in the West is worthless, the course is training in neoliberal propaganda to justify and maintain the status quo

I hate being forced to use social media in order to attract clients.

liberal discovering that military spending does not correspond to efficiency and results.

USA government: I know this group, He‘s me

the bad thing is that until last year, not only the army was in agreement with illegal prospectors but i was also helping them

I think it would make more sense to be a Ukraine tank, it would be easier logistically than hunting a destroyed Russian tank

Rant about Zizek “European exceptionalism” by Dg Fgnds
Zizek became a kind of ideologue of "European exceptionalism": in a world threatened by right-wing populism, Europe plays a special role in guaranteeing democratic freedoms, human rights and social-democratic values. The irony is that the Europe acclaimed in the world of ideas is, in the real world, increasingly susceptible to the influence of these new types of fascism (see Meloni's Italy), in addition to being increasingly vassal and without a strategic project. The cult of Europe grows in inverse proportion to its relevance and political capacity. However, what strikes me most about their current positions, calling for Western support for Ukraine (just as it did for the regressive disintegration of the former Yugoslavia, incidentally) are two things: i) the notable lack of principle, resulting in a lack of coherence or even in pure and simple hypocrisy; ii) complete ignorance or deliberate confusion about what the idea of ​​"just war" or "people's war" represents in the history of Marxism. Explaining the first point: Zizek, like all Western powers, starting with the US, recognized Kosovo's unilateral independence in 2008 from Serbia. Independence quite functional to the economic and military interests of the NATO countries. However, it stigmatizes as mere Russian vassals the entire struggle for independence, which has lasted eight years, of the Ukrainians (of Russian ethnicity and language) of the Donbass, persecuted by Kiev. What Russia does in acknowledging unilateral separation is analogous to the West's stance on Kosovo. Why is there enthusiastic support in one case and total opposition in the other? In fact, Zizek does not even recognize the relevance of the Donbass problem after the Euromaidan coup in his texts on the subject of Ukraine, it seems like a mere Russian plot. Easy to answer the question: why does Kosovo want to join the good Europe, separating itself from the evil Serbia, while in Donbass the desire for Europe is rejected in the name of joining the also evil Russia (the Slavs of orthodox Christian tradition are always suspect.. .). To call this kind of belief in Western superiority European chauvinism (the irony: of a European peripheral, from Slovenia, imagining himself, however, in the navel of the highest civilization) does not seem to be too much of an exaggeration. The second point concerns the mystification that Zizek gives to the Ukrainian resistance, going so far as to compare it to the struggle in Vietnam and Palestine. The Ukrainian "resistance" is based on the operational command of NATO, on the political and media support of the entire power of the European and North American bourgeoisie, and on completely traditional methods of warfare: quantity of modern weapons, capacity for destruction, support of large powers, etc. What a difference to the national liberation struggles of the last century! Let us recall the Maoist concept of "people's war". The idea was that inferior armies could defeat superior armies due to an irreducible quality: their difference from conventional bourgeois armies. A people's army would involve a political and ideological relationship with mass organizations and would subordinate military power to mass political work. The latter, despite making all kinds of international alliances for the success of its cause, should rely essentially on its own forces, especially on the moral and ideological factor. The importance given to morale and the strategic centrality of defense make explicit the essentially Clausewitzian characteristic of these popular guerrillas and armies. Nothing could be further from the current extremely conventional behavior of the Ukrainian elites, totally puppets of the USA. We can summarize the characteristics of a people's war in the following aspects: - primacy of the political over the military - support of the masses as a main factor - democratic and popular revolution program - leadership of the proletariat By comparing Ukraine and Vietnam, Zizek demonstrates the inability to understand the qualitative difference between two types of wars governed by totally opposite logics. That of Ukraine essentially repeats that of 1914-1918, a conflict between powers (at the time, the "democratic" England and France against the authoritarian and barbarians of the continental Empires), governed by homogeneous forces, in which the quantitative element prevails over the qualitative (in the Hegelian sense of the concepts), resulting only in the useless massacre of peoples used as cannon fodder. The Western left that does not understand this, like Zizek, proves to have completely superficially and unreflectively absorbed the teachings of the years of anti-colonial revolution and post-war people's wars. Or else they are mere renegades, such as the social-chauvinists of the Second International, condemned by Lenin, who sanctioned the massacre of the proletariat on the altar of the mercenary interests of their internal bourgeoisies. Even in relation to the Middle East: the Azov Battalion is incomparable, a Nazi band organized in the military style of small armed shock groups, with mass organizations (despite any possible criticism of their religious and dogmatic ideologies) rooted in popular work, as Hamas or Hezbollah. Not to mention organizations such as the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, with universalist and emancipatory ideas. Not only do our leftist apologists in the West lack historical culture: they lack the slightest understanding of basic issues of strategies and styles of work and organization from past experiences of armed struggle.

even though he is a counterweight to American imperialism, we cannot forget that he is a right-wing conservative, who has been using the LGBT population as a campaign target which creates a tragedy so cannot have uncritical support for it. In the words of Alexandre Vasilenskas, on the phenomenon of Russian conservatism towards the LGBT+ population: “How much Putin can re-establish a sovereign project without putting capitalism in check is something to be observed. And it is “the issue” for Russian communists. Even those allocated in the limited PCFR. In relation to the LGBT population, a tragic crossroads was created, fortunately very different from ours: for the majority of the people, the civil rights of this population are identified with the tragedy of the 90s. It stands as a warning to the dangers of the “Ford foundation left”.”

liberals are a homogeneous ideology, especially in countries outside the capitalist center, they are more an indoctrination than an organic ideology

Victory for the US in achieving its goals, sacrificing the population of Ukraine and the economy of Europe

The resistance of Bolsonarist generals to help indigenous communities and the insistence of these military personnel in facilitating the economic exploitation of the forest (even through illegal mining) are based on an antiquated concept of national sovereignty. For many Army officers, the defense of Yanomami groups is nothing more than a pretext for foreign governments to occupy the Amazon through NGOs, to take the region out of Brazil’s control. There are many books aimed at the military that spread these outlandish theories. One of these works was edited by the Army Library in 1995 and is studied until today. This is “A Farsa Ianomâmi”, written by Colonel Carlos Alberto Lima Menna Barreto.The content of the book justifies the title: Menna Barreto argues that the Yanomami never existed. released-in-95-book. According to him, “the Yanomami gentile [is] nothing more than [a] cunning and clumsy device imagined to bring together different tribes, groups and subgroups in the same ethnographic whole and, thus, in a subtle way and much to the taste of the media, changing the map of the Amazon for the most ‘noble’ reasons and without major traumas”. For the author, the agent of this “creation” would be the Swiss photographer, naturalized Brazilian, Claudia Andujar, who would have convinced the indigenous people to go through this process of “Yanomization”, with the exclusive objective of meeting “alien” interests (such as some military usually refers to foreigners). Menna Barreto reports that she had met indigenous people from those areas between 1969 and 1971 and only when she returned to the place, between 1985 and 1989, did she see them identify themselves as Yanomami. A scholar of themes related to the Armed Forces, the anthropologist Piero Leirner, from the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar), criticizes the line of thought of the author of “A Farsa Ianomâmi”.“It’s as if the indigenous people were looking at the Armed Forces in reverse and saying: ‘There is no such thing as the Armed Forces, what exists there are three different groups, since they don’t dress the same, they do everything separately,’” he says ironically. “They (the military) use this reasoning to say that the Yanomami are not constituted as a society, that’s the point. That’s because they didn’t want to recognize the idea that being a society they would have a territory connected to them. In other words, the problem is to manufacture the information that is suitable for a kind of political struggle that the military was carrying out there in the 1990s and carried on” explains Leirner. “They didn’t understand the fundamental thing: those groups and subgroups live in a system. That is, there needs to be some level of relationship between them for things to work there and in the relationship with the forest, obviously. It is partial and biased information that they produced”. According to the anthropologist, this type of literature has influenced generations of officers, up to the present day. This is the case of generals Augusto Heleno and Eduardo Villas Bôas.

after all these countries have handed over their weapons to Ukraine the US will force them to buy their weapons with an inflated price and exclusive maintenance of American companies, it will be good in the long run these countries will lose military capacity and have expensive and bad equipment

One thing that stresses me out when I meet my family is their clear lack of awareness of their hypocrisy along with their false moralism, my cousin spent a long time complaining about the supposed corruption of the government, but on the next subject said that he can’t wait to get into a corruption scheme together with his father-in-law to smuggle imported goods.

How does someone reach this level of fascism

Remember that, as an immediate consequence of the end of the USSR, average life expectancy plummeted in Ukraine, as in many other former Soviet republics, including Russia.

worse is the parallel they made with Kuvira unifying the earth nation (China) with the republic city (Hong Kong) since it was the earth nation’s legitimate territory

the problem that the fall of the roman empire was not a single event, it was a process until when it occurred is still debated by historians, during the final events of rome the empire underwent major transformations and alterations to rome which was at the beginning of the empire and totally different from the rome of the late empire both in composition social, cultural and economic, There’s a YouTube channel that specializes in late Roman empire history Called Maiorianus which is not a subject that many history channels deal with It will be a good introduction to that period. https://youtube.com/@Maiorianus_Sebastian

the PSTU party from Brazil is supporting China’s protests against the lockdown, so we can already have confirmation that these protests are being exaggerated by the western in yet another chapter of the hybrid war against china, and still repeating the same proposal when did the first lockdowns start in china For those who don’t know, this party is infamous for supporting extreme US policy coups and every time they always fall into American propaganda, the most famous case is when they support the coup in Ukraine in 2014
