Early this morning (local time), a new or reconstituted unit of the Ukrainian special forces (likely UK-trained and organized, as the original Ukrainian special forces have almost all been killed off or hospitalized) attempted a river-borne landing to seize control of the Russian-held Zaporozhie Atomic Energy Station, the largest nuclear plant in Europe, just hours before the station was due to be visited by a senior delegation from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA.)
The landing was to involve at least two waves. Russia was aware of the plans and killed almost the entire first wave (also taking a few prisoners) on their beachhead, a few kilometers from the reactors, while sinking or otherwise killing the second wave on the water, and attacking by air a potential third wave at their point of origin. At least 200, possibly 300 of the most elite Ukrainian personnel were killed or otherwise knocked out of action within just a few hours.
It’s not clear how the Ukrainians intended to run the nuclear power station even if they did seize it, seeing as everyone who works there, commutes to and from their homes in nearby, Russian-held Energodar (which BTW took some damage from “imprecise” Ukrainian artillery that was trying to support the landing.) And you know, all it takes is one tired worker to push the wrong button, as at Chernobyl…..
In short, the scheme was totally harebrained and insane. It is likely the operation was planned with the help of the British (SAS or whatever)—the USA would not do anything this stupid (feel free to disagree, leave a comment.)
For those of you who were wondering why Russia never bombed the Ukrainian Armed Forces HQ or Ukraine Security Service HQ in Kiev, here’s your answer. You don’t bomb your own spies and informants.
For anyone who doesn’t believe this madness actually happened (because it’s not on CNN), God bless you, just wait and see, it’s embarrassing but it will start seeping out into the MSM soon enough, then you can come back and thank me, or at least acknowledge (quietly, to yourself) why you still read this blog…. AS USUAL. How’s your Ghost of Kiev and Bucha Rape Dungeon coming along?

Was reading about this in moonofalabama website this morning and was wondering if you were going to comment on it and lo and behold into my inbox your email arrived, great point about not bombing your informants!
Bay of Piglets?
I’m afraid I have to disagree with you on one point, the US State Department actually is that stupid. And even the shoulder-to-shoulder-chest-full-of-ribbons generals who got where they are by being yes-men, will go along with it, even if they secretly know it is stupid. I haven’t had a lot of respect for the Pentagon generals since I was in the Air Force during the Vietnam war and saw how they went along with bonehead policies promulgated by ignoramuses who didn’t care about American blood.
The Russians claim that they have been tracking these Ukrainian commandos since they were being trained in the UK, and we’re monitoring their movements since they entered Ukraine from Poland. (As usual, some grains of salt required with reports from any side in a war.)
yep, the stupidity of the US military is indeed remarkable.
I could not agree more.
What is mind boggling about this country is its inability to ever learn anything from history. Just mind boggling. Think Cuba and Iran. We will never get over those huge and well deserved embarrassments; just non sense; just not humanly acceptable. And I just mentioned those two….
A very useful update. There is some discussion that one of the reasons the Russian Forces have not taken Donbas is because they are now in a stalemate with the Ukraine military. The Russians and their allies lack the infantry numbers to finish the job. Jacob, what do you think?
I think you misread the situation if you think there is stalemate. The Russians main purpose is to reduce the Ukrainian military, not primarily territorial gain. Day to day operation in Donbas involves reducing Ukrainians and then using the infantry to clean up when the opposition has faded away. It is a great way to minimise the attacking side’s casualties and make slow but steady progress.
My compliments to you for two important observations:
1) how were they going to run the plant if they had succeeded?
2) bombing Kiev’s military and security services HQs would risk killing the informants.
Thanks for sharing these two key points.
I am English and this feels stupid enough to have been originated by the British. Boris Johnson’s final “present” to Ukraine.
Bet they had some stupid name for it too.
Sad that men are being killed for all this.
As a Brit myself I could totally believe this was a half-assed operation supported and trained by the U.K. As someone who was in the RN during the Falklands war, I saw first hand and heard stories of British incompetence. It seems some things never change.
Probably Lord Cardigan was brought back from the dead to lead this expedition, as Liz Truss never had a brain to revive. I’m waiting to see what nation’s boats the idiots were given (though probably made in China), is it impossible to provide them with rebreathers and propulsion units so they’d at least have have the dignity to be slaughtered on land?
I fear that Captain Mainwaring didn’t have Sergeant Wilson on hand to say “Is that wise, Sir?” It seems to me that the US-Ukronazi regime is grasping at straws because that is all that they have left. Murdering a civilian’s daughter, dropping fireworks on Crimea, assassinating local politicians and bombarding the precincts of a nuclear power station amount only to pinpricks. As for the lack of Allied progress, why move when the US-Ukronazis send their cannon-fodder to you by Amazon? Falkenhayn did it in 1915 and got it done back to him in 1916; it has been the logic of industrial revolution firepower ever since.
Thank you. I no longer rely on the Western “fake” media to report anything except American-style-Stasu B.S. God help the USA, as the “leaders” are not worth a fig.
I like figs. Have 3 trees that were full of figs this year.
Some attempt by the UK to remain relevant probably. Between this and the HMS Prince of Wales doing its best impersonation of the Admiral Kuznetsov, well, good luck with that now.
Lowkey waiting for Prince Harry to call some old Army buddies and just go the full Richard III. It would have to be better than what they have now.
I’m a citizen of the second most pathetic nation in the Anglosphere (Canada). The UK has now pulled well into the lead as the winner of that prize. The nonsense coming out of the political and military leadership in the UK around the Ukraine catastrophe is appalling and would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragic (for the Ukraine of course but also for all the fine citizens of the British Isles). While the leadership here in Canada is full of the same inane rhetoric as in the UK, deep down everybody in Canada know that we’re militarily irrelevant on the world stage and our PM is nothing more than a globalist show pony. Apart from carrying on like the 51st state of the USA, Canada has no meaningful influence on the big geopolitical questions of the day. On the other hand, it appears that many within the UK seem to genuinely believe that Britannia still rules the seas. Why not accept that the British Empire ended more than a century ago and focus on looking after the fine people and beautiful places that make up the lovely little island that is Great Britain?
While the USA bears the brunt of the blame for instigating the Ukraine mess, it seems to me that the UK is as much (or perhaps more?) to blame for keeping it going.
And now you’ve got the insufferable Liz Truss about to take the helm?!? My gosh, can it get any worse?
I thought that honor was reserved for Australia.
> My gosh, can it get any worse?
Yes. Don’t jinx it.
Until this, I thought not.
Yeah I’m in Canada too. Total gongshow. What might have been, man.
Martin: Is your assessment of UK vs. Canada placement in the scum faced idiot league informed by the news leaked this week that Canada FS agent was grooming and recruiting girls in the UK to go off as ISIL brides, to remove the head from the shoulder of female infidels in Syria? Though if the UK turns out to be involved, this makes for equal shares of evil and incompetence. Deputy PM Freeland strikes again.
Oz is, by far, the most sane of Anglo nations. Just look at how immigration is handled.
Aus > US > UK > NZ > Can
Although, I agree that the UK is now giving Canada serious competition.
Haha, Harry. 😀 Hope his High- erm Madness wearing the correct Uniform this time again… the one with the Swastika will fit perfectly in Ukrainian lines these days. ^^
I am British but since I follow. Matthew Ehret I can believe British Intelligence having their finger everywhere
I can even believe Boris signing off on Daria Dugina
Dima on the Military Summary Channel speculates that this attack was in co ordination with the west and was supposed to be timed with the arrival of the inspection team. The Russians pulled back their troops from the plant making it easier to capture it using the UN inspectors as willing human shields. And I don”t doubt it one bit.
I didn’t get that interpretation from him yesterday.
I’m sure UK was involved, their mop head buffoon didn’t go all the way to Kiev just to deliver an 8 ball. I’m sure Boris told the coke head clown prince of Kiev attack or no more Peruvian marching powder for you. I do think that you are too kind to the ‘Great Satan.” America has never seen an operation that they couldn’t fuck up.
“For those of you who were wondering why Russia never bombed the Ukrainian Armed Forces HQ or Ukraine Security Service HQ in Kiev, here’s your answer. You don’t bomb your own spies and informants.”
Actually, I did wonder and, on more occasion than one. Thanks for answering the question I have not asked yet.
One more point of not bombing the leadership areas. I remember the issue with killing Hitler in WW 2. The Brits came to the realization that it was better to have him alive and screw things up for his own forces than take a chance on a more competent leader that could make things harder for the allies. So Zelensky is the best secret weapon the Russian Federation has and he just keeps on giving. While the Ukranian people and military get destroyed.
Excellent point…..you don’t bomb or kill your informants.
I would think it was conceived by MI6 + SBU, executed by SAS + AFU and reported to Big Daddy
Went about as well as most commando raids during ww2. No doubting the bravery of those involved, but what a bloody mess. Seems like it was planned by someone who read too many Commando Comics (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commando_(comics)).
I don’t know if leaks are required. Ukrainian telegram is hot that there must be a leak “because the Russians knew the whole plan!”, but the response looks more impromptu.
The initial landing in rubber boats got some men several km inland after it was initially spotted and attacked at the landing site.
The barges were spotted in the river, but they were on a leisurely cruise and apparently quite large, the river is wide and modern optics are not terrible.
It looks more like it was a daft plan, Russian troops were on edge because of the IAEA visit and expecting provocations, and the commandos got spotted.
The response should look plausibly impromptu when acting on intelligence gathered by spies and informants.
Even more so if you’re trying to plant the idea that you have informants everywhere when you haven’t….
I heard about this on awakening this morning and knew the operation had been aborted/defeated. Otherwise, it would have been all over the MSM. Thanks for the additional details. However, I do not agree with the assessment that the US would not do something so stupid. The “collective west” does not boast one decent leader except Viktor Orban -possibly. Picking on Russia and China is indeed stupid.
British Army, sadly has chiefs of staff who not only say stupid things out loud but have been doing lots of stupid things in Ukraine for some time…Ben Wallace (our Defense Minister0 is as much a plank as is the future leader of our dimwitted country…maybe Chernobyl irradiated all our brains or got in the water or sheep or something…(we weren’t allowed to eat Scottish lamb for 3 years..but everything else was okay as is usual with massive radiation clouds, don’t ya know?). Muppets.
Thanks for the detailed information in the update on the Ukrainian Special Forces attack on the ZNPP! I just heard about it from another alternative news source, but they had no details.
Have you ever seen what a fool people make of themselves when overcome by rage?
It is not that US is not equally dumb and drinking the same cool-aid. The US is concerned with the geo-political game and plausible deniability and such. The Brits are just plain irrational in their hatred of everything Russian. Brits are at heart also the most racist of all the Western peoples I have interacted with, and the most butt hurt and haughty.
So I would chalk it up to the emotional charge Brits are loaded with, completely overwhelming other inputs.
Thank you for your updates. I appreciate you getting the word out. I do have to \, along with others, disagree with you regarding the US… they most certainly would be in on something like this… fighting a war by proxy. Sad that so many innocent folks are being lead into this.
I am always happy to see another post coming up. Na zdorovie.
One begins to wonder how much is too much for the Ukraine military. The costly “counter-offensive” and this ill-conceived commando exercise in futility have resulted in huge losses in personel. Not to mention the considerable daily casualties inflicted on Ukraine by the merciless Russian artillery . Is there not one single Ukrainian general with the stones to put an end to this nonsense and give Zelenski his walking papers? If this war lasts much longer, there is going to be a significant shortage of Ukrainian men to procreate, similar to what the Soviet Union experienced post WW2.
US has probably been deeply involved including in sinking of Russia’s flag ship “Moskva”… b y providing detailed positions and radar “holes” opportunities
But, but, but, the MSM has completely ignored this Ukie failure. Therefore it nevva happened!
How long until we see it “start seeping out into the MSM” do you think?
Or at least see pics or videos of the assault.
Could be as much as a few weeks. As of yet, no one wants to be the first to step out of line and publish something this madly embarassing for the Ukraine and its sponsors. But, that will wear off.
The USA will do things just as stupid but it’s a different “style?” of stupidity. Yes this has britian written all over it.
In the wish-casting minds of Western command (MI6 in this instance — or whoever); probably thought that the Nuke plant would be the perfect “bridgehead” for a much larger strategic force b/c, well, being a NUCLEAR POWER PLANT — the Russians wouldn’t ‘dare’ attack… and if the Russians were to attack then all the better for Western propaganda. Win-Win.
This sort of unchecked stupidity by Western Commanders is accelerating, events will begin moving very quickly now — creating a snowball effect culminating to… something.
Thank you for filling in the details on this operation.
I don’t understand how anyone could imagine a turning this type of a mission into a victory or a success? Like, your crack troops take the power plant. Now what?
That was my Thinking exactly. For this Operation to have made even a Particle of Sense, the IAEA Inspectors would have had to be in on it…(even though the entire Team was vetted by the Russians). Where I was wrong was not being able to believe Anyone on the Ukrainian Side could be so stupid
When you say they were vetted by the Russians exactly what do you mean by that? If flashing a name badge gets you inside the Plant that is hardly what I call being ‘vetted’.
These are high-level experts from various neutral countries, and each one was cleared individually in talks between Russia and the IAEA.
>Like, your crack troops take the power plant. Now what?
The first thing that comes to mind – they could pretend to be Russian forces, not letting the IAEA delegation to come in (maybe even by force, like shooting at them while they’re getting closer). In order to hide traces of Ukraine’s crimes and to discredit Russians even more.
I don’t put anything past the DC scum anymore.
And I find it hard to believe that if the Brits were involved, the US wasn’t at least aware of it.
was this just for optics or/and political spin. or was there some strategy behind it? could they have held it if they succeeded in its capture?
Dima said it may not be true, but when the Russians started shelling the opposite bank up to six authorities from the Ministry of Defense of the UK supposedly were killed. The full story will be very interesting if we ever get to hear it.
Ukraine is now reduced to attempting Hail Mary passes into the endzone from 80 yards out and hoping for a miracle. Meanwhile, the Russians have assembled a new corps at Rostov on Don which is waiting in the wings for assignment and deployment. So a perfect storm is brewing. The Ukrainian military has shot its wad and now the cupboard is bare. Where and when will Shoigu unleash this hammer blow in Ukraine, and to what effect? It’s time for all the armchair generals to step up to the chalk board and game plan the next Battle of Kursk. Supposedly, this new corps includes up to 40,000 fresh troops supported by several battalions of the new T-90s, which have yet to be seen in action on any battlefield. Its going to get very ugly very soon, and the number of Ukrainian widows and orphans is about to skyrocket. Is there no limit to the insanity?
Thanks but I’ve never heard of this magical corps that you speak of.
Dima on the Military Summary Channel covered in detail a few days ago, but you can google Russian 3rd Army Corps and get lots of links. Latest info is that the formation phase has been completed and its now being outfitted for combat deployment. That only happens when roll out is near term. Big question is . . . are they headed to the Donbas arc or to spearhead the break toward Odessa?
Sorry, never heard of this guy or his facts. I googled it, and the first thing that came up was a Wikipedia entry with claims sourced to dubious outlets including a Russian opposition website in Georgia. You don’t send something the size of a new untrained volunteer “corps” into battle as an integral whole, it would be just a pile of useless meat. Yes, there are many volunteer batallions (of dubious quality) ready to go to wherever meat is needed to plug holes, but not a “corps” that will be moving in its own direction. That’s just silly.
I suppose that it could be an elaborate disinformation campaign, but Dima has been largely correct about most of his reporting thus far and the existence of a corps sized formation is likely to be easily discernible from satellite and aerial surveillance of the Rostov on Don region; so if a deception, it should be easy to debunk. As best I can tell, no one is denying it’s existence, not even Ukraine. The only doubt seems to be related to size, with some estimates at 15,000 and others at 40,000.
You want someone with a satellite subscription to do an hour long documentary special to “debunk” some minor online myth? No one cares. I already debunked it for you. Believe what u want. Unlike your Dima fellow, I’m under no pressure to produce daily content on the same topic, nor do I get paid by the word or otherwise. What you are conveying makes no sense, sorry.
Dima is not always right (tough , he knows a lot of stuff regarding military and military history). Riba (telegram channel) are right 90% of time (there are few persons behind that channel) , but even they get it wrong sometimes , or jump the gun (in terms of capturing some settlements , or confusing one , for another , since there are villages with the same name in Ukraine , sometimes , not far from each other).
There are volunteer units in Rostov (and elsewhere) , mainly from Kherson and Zaporozhye regions (not sure about numbers) , but they are training for more than 4 months (if not five) to be used , when front in those regions moves on further , in order to relieve pressure from Rosgvardia , in keeping security there. I have no doubt that they will be controlled by Russian military professionals , with some smaller numbers of professional units around “just in case”. I really doubt that they will be used in direct confrontations with Ukrainians in any circumstances.
As for T-90’s tanks , there are some there – around Rostov (I’ve heard it from reliable independent source) , but I don’t know their number (or unit/units) , nor if those will be used in Ukraine and for what.
Russians tend to not advertise their military plans.
The idea was probably to create a propaganda victory at any cost.
It might appear in MSM, but they will never tell you who actually did what. So because we’re being fed daily with how well the Ukrainians are doing, no doubt those captured by MSM will think those stupid Ruskies attempted to seize the nuclear plant, while the dear Ukrainians thwarted the attempt by killing them off. That will teach those Ruskies to shell the plant and attempt to cause a nuclear disaster.
This attempted takeover of ZNPP was simply another attempt by the U gov’t to control the narrative. Once it was clear that the inspectors would arrive and expose the truth about who was responsible for the airborne devices disrupting the plant, the U gov’t had no choice – to control the narrative, it was necessary to control the inspectors and to control the inspectors it was necessary to control the plant. This is a desperate act. The inspectors will expose the fact that the U gov’t has been telling untruths. Hard to continue toward cannonization when the potential saint is discovered to be unsaintly. After this hideous political farce of a conflict is over, it will be hard to gain concensus about which mistake gets the stupid award. I nominate the U gov’t kinetic disruption of ZNPP.
When I was a kid growing up in Canada, there was a sitcom on Fox called Married With Children. In this one scene, a wife tells her husband the Sun is going to blow up in 24 hours and destroy all life on Earth. He immediately criticizes her for not telling him earlier, so he could go out looting. I found that scene hilarious, because it was so absurd and unbelievable.
Well, I’m 46 years old now, and I’ve lived to see the day when that scene would play out in real life all across the world. People don’t act this stupidly for no reason. No one is that greedy or naturally apathetic. You know, the folks living in Rome in 475 CE were doing everything they could to get their hands on money, especially by robbing their own country, as well as pretty much anyone or anything else they could get some money out of. They were also having a merry old time and generally acting like monkeys high on cocaine. The next year wasn’t nearly as good for them, though. You see, the present behavior of people all across the world isn’t a new way of doing things. It’s how people act when they know something is terribly wrong and that everything is about to collapse. They don’t know when it will happen, but they know it’s going to happen soon, and that frees them of all their inhibitions and makes them act like greedy imbeciles. It’s just a matter of time now. Not even that much time, really. It’s like that old movie On The Beach. We’re all just waiting for the world to end, and we know it’s going to happen very soon. It’s really just a matter of how we want to spend our last days.
I’m 71, turning 72 this month, and I remember the Cuban Missile Crisis. I was a news junkie even then. The ICBMs, had been halfway elevated out of their silos to make them quicker to fire. I thought we would make it through, because JFK, RFK, and the people around them obviously didn’t want a nuclear war. I have no trust in the current bunch, who seem to be intentionally provocative. I worry about the planet every day.
I feel like that since 1979 when I started to really understand that Germany looks so destroyed, because crazy people attacked other countries and Germany got bombed from the air with aeroplanes. The absurdity of it all never left me. Nothing is really “normal” with humans. We prefer short term gain over long term prosperity.
We even call assholes like Alexander “the Great” heroes. They are mass murderers and bandits.
You can’t control an investigation unless you control the crime scene. The inspectors were coming to begin an investigation on the ZNPP. The U gov’t needed to take control of the crime scene, the ZNPP, from the opposing forces.
I think the US could do as good a job as the Poms.
Don’t forget the bay of pigs, the Contras who got pushed into combat with no guns, WMD in Iraq.
I’m sure others will have additional examples of the Incompetent Adventures of Uncle Sam.
It seems to me the whole Ukraine thing is one of them.
The Ukrainians have been trying to blow up the power plant for three weeks, what makes you think they had any plans to run it?
Dumb question. They need the electricity.
So you expect us to believe that they were deliberately trying not to cause damage these last weeks? The Russians certainly seemed concerned, it was they that called in the inspectors.
As I said, it’s a game of chicken. Obviously they have mental issues. Believe what you want. Not one projectile has yet hit any of the six reactor housings. The Russian effort to connect the plant to Crimea was ruined, as I said. Beyond that, I don’t know what exactly they are aiming for, as I said.
with uncle sam paying the bills i find it highly unlikely they would be unaware of such training of this unit and therefore totally aware of its mission.
plus a spy could just as easy be quartered in GB as Ukraine…after all the term spy does not infer location
I doubt the SAS had anything to do with this. They are hard headed killers and would know this was doomed to fail. I suggest it was those other clowns, the Paras, all gung-ho lets do this! Just like the US marine corp. Lions led by donkeys.
I think you’ll find it’s the politicians both within and without the military who did this.
Why has Bald and Bankrupt been chucked out of Russia? He has done a wonderful job over the last few years to educate people about Russia itself.
Bald and Bankrupt is a Brit on YT who specializes in travel videos of the former Soviet Union. I heard that he’s the most popular YouTuber. He was in Kiev on 2/24 and left quickly by train to Poland with another YTer. I haven’t seen him since but I haven’t looked for his videos. Some say he’s former military intelligence but I kind of doubt that. He’s fluent in Russian.
Mr Bald’s last video from Russia involved a visit to a Jewish enclave in Siberia, in case that is of interest to anyone.
Man, no one cares about that.
YouTube, Bald and Bankrupt. He’s and Englishman who has traveled the former Soviet Union, often in search of Soviet era mosaics. He’s been to most former republics interacting with the locals. Whatever his schick is, he is been tossed out but so far no explanation. Most of all he’s only only youtuber that does not waste my time imploring me to click a like button. I know something about Transnistria because of B&B. And then there’s Kolya…
I gather he was deported from Russia because the Russian Federation may have mistaken his videos as anti-Russia. However, when interviewed on another channel after being deported, he said he now supports the SMO in Ukraine. He was critical in the beginning, when he didn’t understand the reasons for invading He said he got an email from YT saying that he would have to support Ukraine. No ifs, ands, or buts. I’m sorry to see him off of YT. He even asked people to unsubscribe, discouraging views of his many videos
Grouchoone1195 Bald broke into Baikonur, an ex Soviet space port that is restricted to the public then posted his Hijinks on YouTube. You do understand that if you break the law in a foreign country there’s a good chance they might give you the boot. Anyway sorry Jacob, you probably don’t care about this but I was compelled to comment.
That’s likely what happened, although I thought it might have been just play acting on Bald’s part. See his interview on Sam’s Russian Adventures, a YT channel. Threats were made against him. He feared for his personal safety.
It is well known that Boris fancies himself as another Churchill, as well as the desire to influence the world in UK interests.. When his hero was faced with defeat in 1940 his reaction was to “Set Europe Ablaze”. I.e. to initiate subversion, sabotage and terrorism. The SAS offers Boris the opportunity to do the same. For sure he has grasped the opportunity!
Western media have the lid tightly sealed on this fiasco.
They wanted to cause a nuclear meltdown and blame it on the Russians since taking and running the plant would have been next to impossible. Artillery shells can’t do it so you need to send in a team to cause the meltdown with the visit of the inspectors meant as cover.
Scorched earth tactics on a continental scale. They know eastern Ukraine is lost to them so they want to make it unlivable for anyone else.
This and the ongoing shelling is utter mind blowing lunacy from Ukraine and its handlers, proof once again that these people are increasingly desperate and capable of literally anything as a result. The winners and losers of this conflict are settled, now it’s just further totally pointless psychotic slaughter of mainly Ukrainains for various political, PR spin or whatever other BS reasons. But the potential for the whole thing to literally go nuclear is very real and increasingly likely. Hopefully they don’t decide to let the IAEA inspection team through and pull an equally insane stunt on them that they can somehow try to blame on the Russians. Nothing would surprise at this stage.
“…the USA would not do anything this stupid.” Let’s not overestimate the capabilities of the idiots running the USA right now. We only have to look at the past 18 months of American idiocracy to know that it’s probably the case that the imbeciles running the UK beat our idiots to the punch on this one.
From Canada with Love
It’s all over MSM that the “invasion” was simply a welcoming committee for the IAEA and the Russians just over reacted.
Anyways, Jacob’s replies to comments are the best reading of the last 30 years. I implore everyone to to encourage more halfwits to comment here.
Thank you for your help.
LOL, thanks. Responding to retards is the best part of this “job.”
“For those of you who were wondering why Russia never bombed the Ukrainian Armed Forces HQ or Ukraine Security Service HQ in Kiev, here’s your answer. You don’t bomb your own spies and informants.”
Also, when your enemy is making mistakes, you don’t stop them.
The danger from nuclear material and rectors has been overblown for decades now. You shouldn’t eat that stuff though. Films like HBO’s Chernobyl have created a farcical hyperbolical picture of the danger. I was 18 at the time and society in Germany went hysterical. Only the immediate suroundings of a power plant are in any real danger of high concentrations and where Fallout comes down from rain.
It’s another PR campaign by Ukraines actor in chief to paint Russians as EVIL!
Reviewing the latest Brandon speech, it seems that the administration is at war with any country that will not pay homage and is also declaring war on anybody at home who will also not pay homage.
“That” background also kept making me think of Nuremberg. People who accuse others of semi fascism are clearly in projection mode.
Am interested in the view that The Dreizin Report will no doubt share on all this at some point!
military intelligence has always been a wonderfully apt oxymoron, especially the Western variety for the last 60ish years… signed Jumbo Shrimp
Though from the UK, I can honestly say the operation, so far as is possible to determine, appears to have achieved, or is achieving, its objective[s].
If you thought this was about Ukraine or Russia winning or of a fight for a multi polar world, do not worry yourselves for you are already dead and in Elysium.
I hugely disagree that the US is not that stupid to as plan an attack on a nuke power station. I like you think the sas planned it and will be the patsy here but everyone knows the Brit’s don’t take a dump without the US giving permission. I have no doubt that the morons in foggy bottom had their hands in this I bet they were jumping at the bit thinking yeah this will catch the Russians by suprise. This kind of stupid hugely embarrassing operation is exactly the type of stupid shit the US would do.
