The Ukraine ‘war’ is close to a conclusion. Despite the gullibility of those who swallowed the absurd lies of the Western politicians and media, the Russians have comfortably achieved all their objectives.
Thousands of young Ukrainians have been needlessly slaughtered on the orders of President Zelensky.
All Zelensky had to do to ensure territorial integrity was to sign an agreement to not allow the U.S. and/or N.A.T.O. to militarily threaten Russia or Russians from Ukrainian territory. He bowed to Western pressure and refused. Now, half his country will return, almost certainly permanently, to Russian control. The other half is ruined.
We live in a world where the second-rate status of the U.S. (and the West in general) has become plain to see. All that is left are the hollowed out institutions that once signified the dignity and wisdom of an advanced culture, and the fancy uniforms of a Potemkin military
The Biden regime continues to lurch from one humiliating and self-inflicted catastrophe to another. To be fair, the process was well underway before Biden stumbled dazedly out of his basement, but, as with the Afghanistan rout, it will be put next to his name in the history books.

Europeans, some of whom will die from hunger and cold before the end of this year, will increasingly turn away from the West and toward the East.

What a year – and we’re not even half way through!
