My apologies to all those who commented today

Guys, there are good times, bad times and terrible times. I just had a major problem happen in my home (a teenager acting up in the worst way and at the worst time) and when I came back to my computer I managed to press the wrong button and delete the last 50 comments posted (across all posts, I think). I was really upset and I screwed-up.I tried to find an “undo” command, but blogger does not seem to offer it. So I have to offer you my heartfelt apologies for shooting your comments today. I am sorry and I will try to never let that happen again.If you have the time and patience to repost them, I will gladly do that. If you email me with a summary of your comment, I can go through my inbox and try to find your deleted comment. Other than that there is nothing I can offer.This is the perfect time to call me a moron and an idiot. I would have no right to object :-(Sorry, The Saker

Why does Russia not leak the names of the war criminals?

While Nazi death squads are roaming around the Donbass and murdering civilians and “their own” soldiers the Kremlin’s response seems to be limited to two aspects: denouncing the atrocities on the ground and providing truthful information to the Ukrainian population (via the Russian media) and the world (via RT). This is good, but not enough.I am pretty confident that the GRU knows all the Ukrainian unit commanders down to the company commander (usually a Senior/First Lieutenant). This is standard practice for any military intelligence agency. They most definitely know (or should know) all the names of the brigade HQ officers and above. Finally, I would also bet that all the names of the senior Right Sector and various death squads commanders are also known to the GRU.So why not leak them to the media?Let it be know that if you give a criminal order your name will become public which, while not as unpleasant as a court-martial for war crimes, could still be very, very unpleasant for the folks thus singled out.The Russians could begin by a small leak, just a few names, and then make it known that “more names shall be leaked as circumstances warrant it”. This would create quite a panic, at least amongst regular Ukrainian army commanders, the pilots of rotary or fixed wing aircraft, artillery battery commanders, especially if the penalty for being put on such a list is left deliberately vague. And it could save a lot of lives.Alas, it appears that the traditional GRU mania for secrecy is still the rule and that the appointment of a relatively young GRU Chief (Igor Sergun) has not heralded a new era in this traditionally most conservative branch of the Russian military.But maybe another, more forward looking agency, could make a few suggestions to the right people?The Saker

The Chechens and Ramzan Kadyrov

After my recent post about Chechnia and the hope it gives me, one reader posted a particularly interesting comment which, I believe, deserves a full answer. One thing which particularly motivated me to write this more detailed reply rather that a shot comment-reply was that what this reader wrote almost exactly mirrored my own thoughts just a few years ago. So in replying to this reader I have the opportunity to explain why I changed my opinion about Ramzan Kadyrov and the Chechen people today. So let’s take the comments of this reader one by one:1. âImage of Chechnia and Chechens is radically changing in Russiaâ. In reality, Chechens are being considered what they are â thugs from the mountains, using knives and guns without hesitation after slightest provocation, for example in a restaurant, against usually barehanded adversaries. What is worse, itâs well known that they will get away with it even with blood on their hands. Officials will be bribed or intimidated, so no one will be prosecuted. Even if the case gets to a court â well, persons involved will just go back to Caucasus, where local police will never try to catch them. These guys go through the downtown Moscow in dozens of cars, shooting live ammunition into the air and surrounding vehicles, and again, with impunity. So â there is no change in attitude towards Chechens: they are feared and hated. And since they are really a very small minority the only thing keeping them from being harassed and killed one by one is support from the police, judicial and special services. Sad but true. Google phrases below, if interested. Click images section or youtube if you donât know Russian: ÐавказÑкий авÑопÑобег. СÑÑелÑÑÑÐ°Ñ ÑвадÑба.There is much truth to what you write. However, what is important here is this: what is Ramzan Kadyrov’s stance on the actions of these Chechens? The reply is that he calls such behavior a disgrace for Chechens and that he demands that Chechen behave more courteously and more respectfully than any other ethnic group. He not only says so, he takes action which one famous case illustrates very well. There is this volunteer group in many regions of Russia called “Stop Kham” (stop the rude person”) which confronts rude drivers and which glues a big sticker on the front window of cars parked illegally (you can find their videos on YouTube, some with English captions; they are quite fun to watch). One day they confronted a rich and arrogant woman who, as it turned out, was the wife of a senior Chechen official. She got really angry and called up some “body guards aka thugs” and a big fight ensued. When Kadyrov learned about that he immediately dismissed the official. So yes, there is a lot of Chechen thuggery and banditry, but that is not behavior Islam approves (often the Chechens acting this way are drunk) and Kadyrov tries as hard as can be to crack down on such behavior.2. Media calls Kadyrov hero? Thatâs because he was awarded with the Golden star (highest Russian decoration) and title of Hero of Russian Federation, move, that caused sheer outrage and disgust in the Russian military. He is also called academic, which is also true. When Kadyrov is called a hero in media, there is /sarc tag in 100% cases. The tag you are probably missing.Did you watch the latest ÐеÑÑи Ðедели Ñ ÐмиÑÑием ÐиÑелевÑм (Weekly News with Dimitri Kiselev)? He clearly means it when he says that Kadyrov is a hero and, as I am sure you know, Kiselev is arguable the most powerful and influential person in the Russian media right now. As for the Russian military being disgusted with Kadyrov getting the medal of “Hero of Russia” this makes sense: he used to be a Chechen warlord who switched sides after all. But look what he did after that? His father was murdered and he inherited a horrible situation in Chechnia and yet he achieved what was in theory impossible: there are no more terrorist gangs to guerrilla warloards in Chechnia. And look at the key role Chechen security forces have played in their elimination, including the recent one of Doku Umarov. Does that not deserve the title of Hero of Russia? I think that is completely does and any Russian with such achievements would have obtained it.3. Kadyrov is really playing very important role. He (actually, his father) was chosen to become a rat wolf of a kind. A creature trained to eradicate its fellow rats, i.e. warlords, that failed to strike deal with the Kremlin first. Was that necessary to bring up such creature? The answer is likely âyesâ. It was cost-effective solution. But that doesnât change Kadyrov from what he is, nor it helps to improve attitude towards him. Nothing will help here, i think.You are making one huge assumption here: that in essence folks like Maskhadov, Dudaev, Umarov, Basaev, Iandarbiev, Raduev, Zakaev or Baraev are of the same nature as Kadyrov. That they are all rats. I totally disagree. The former were thugs and liars, they made a mockery of Islam and they used Wahabi Islam as a cover for their banditry and mobster activities. They were in for the money first and foremost, for power second and for hatred third. These guys were truly vicious rats, the scum of the earth, and they have to be eliminated one by one. I believe that Kadyrov is truly religious and that his goal is categorically different: he is trying to built up a peaceful and prosperous Chechnia and for that he puts his life on the line each day. Can I prove it? No. Can you? No. Neither of us are mind-readers. So it is your deeply held and sincere conviction versus mine. All I can say is that I used to think exactly like you do. Two things made me re-consider: discussions with Chechens and listening to Kadyrov in interviews.4. After elimination of most rivaling warlords Chechnya is living quite well, thanks to the money they got from the federal state budget. Money, that doesnât go to other regions, that is. They build great mosques and skyscrapers (skyscrapers, for godâs sake, in a rural area!) at expense of regions of Russia proper. Itâs well known, and causes a lot of tensions too.Is Kadyrov wealthy? Yes. Does a lot of money come from the Federal Center. Yes. So what? Kadyrov is no richer than any other regional leader and pouring money into Chechnia was an absolute necessity to prevent the return to another civil war fueled by criminal gangs. Does Chechnia need great mosques and skyscrapers? First, it is not for us to judge what they want to do in their own country as long as they don’t act against Russia. But second yes, I do believe that Chechnia badly needed big mosques and skyscrapers! Why? To restore the badly hurt pride and self-confidence of the people and to give them a sense of hope for the future. In New York they figured that neighborhoods with broken windows and painted tags foster crime. So they decided to fix that and it worked. Same thing for Grozny: these construction are a powerful, visible, signal of what Chechnia wants to become and that is essentially for a city which has almost been leveled to the ground.One last thing: it would be naive in the extreme to compare Kadyrov to Buddha, Gandhi or Saint Seraphim of Sarov. The main cannot simply press a button and transmute himself into a Sergei Lavrov kind of refined intellectual. Besides, while a person like Lavrov is needed in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he would not make a good leader in Chechnia. I think that Kadyrov should be compared to another Hero of Russia: General Shamanov who also did a fantastic job in Chechnia, who is equally hated by western “human rights” professionals and who is himself not averse to take some, shall we say, semi-legal actions. These are tough guys, hard has iron, both personally very courageous and both merciless to their enemies. These are folks you do not want to mess with and you definitely want them on your side. But are they both also intensely patriotic and intensely committed to their ideals? I believe so. Of course, just like with Kadyrov, we don’t really know what Shamanov really thinks or what he believes in. But I think that this is a fair comparison: Kadyrov and Shamanov. Neither of them will ever become a refined intellectual and both will always remain dangerous predators in their heart. That is exactly the kind of persons Russia needs in the Caucasus today: to keep any wannabe Georgian, Dagestani or Ukrainian enemies of Russia frightened and deter them from taking any hostile action. At least this is my personal conclusion.Kind regards and many thanks,The Saker

Ukraine SITREP May 29th, 16:06 UTC/Zulu: Poroshenko’s weird war

Introduction: the broader background to the Ukrainian crisis Before looking at the latest developments in the Ukraine, I think that it is important to at least mention two major developments involving Russia. First, Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus have signed the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) and they will soon be joined by Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. Second, China has officially called for a new security alliance with Russia and Iran thereby proving that all the naysayers who said that China did not really mean it to form an alliance with Russia were plain wrong. As I mentioned it in a previous SITREP the scope and nature of the recent economic agreements between Russia and China already constituted what I called a crypto-alliance and now we see the first official move by China to drop the ‘crypto’ part of it. Again, this is truly a major tectonic shift in world politics and, arguable, the creation of the most powerful coalition of countries in history. The title of Godfather of this new coalition should really go to the USA and Barak Obama who by his amazingly arrogant and hostile policies towards both China and Russia has greatly contributed to the forging of this alliance.This process is far from over, by the way. Not only are there discussions to expand the BRICS to other countries (like Argentina), the SCO or CSTO could also be expanded to include countries such as Iran or Pakistan. AS for the Eurasian Economic Union, it will eventually morph into a single political entity, a Eurasian alliance which could include China in economic and/or security agreements.Lukashenko, Nazarbaev and Putin sign the EEUThe entire Eurasian landmass is slowly but inexorably becoming integrated into a zone free from AngloZionist control and free of the dollar. The writing is on the wall for the AngloZionist Empire.Latest developments in the UkraineThe Ukrainian offensive has seen yet another dramatic escalation with, for the first time, the use of “Grad” multiple rocket launchers on the city of Slaviansk. At least one Ukrainian helicopter, reportedly carrying a general and 12 other people, has been shot down by the Novorossia Defense Forces (NDF). Sporadic artillery fire, at times intensive, has been heard through the night and casualties continue to be brought into the local hospitals. Several Ukrainian units have put down their weapons and basically surrendered to the NDF. In Sebastopol special headquarters have been set up to deal with the flow of incoming refugees. In Kiev the Parliament is considering declaring martial law which would basically give unlimited power to the junta and suspend most civil rights.There are two ways to look at these events. You could say that a lot happened, there is an escalation taking place, people on both sides die, helicopters got shot down, units are refusing to obey criminal order, etc. But you could also say that from a purely military point of view absolutely nothing happened at all. Think of it this way:What have we seen since the junta began its terror operation in Novorossiia? Slaviansk and Kramatorsk have been besieged and shelled. The junta forces have seized the airports near Slaviansk/Kramatorsk and Donetsk. That’s it.Now let me immediately dispel the notion that these airports are somehow strategically important. They are not. Normally, in most military conflicts, airports are very important objects, especially their runways and radars. But in this case the seizure of the Slaviansk/Kramatorsk and Donetsk airports has not been followed by any use of them by the junta, if only because there is way too much combat still taking place around them to make their use safe. Besides, what need is there for airports when everything can be reached by road anyway? What about denying the use of this airport to either the NDF or the Russians should they decide to intervene? Well, the NDF has no air assets at all, as for the Russians they sure don’t need an airport to land an Airborne Regiment, Brigade or even Division. So why did the junta decide to commit its best forces to seize these airports? Simple – because they are not cities. Or, put differently, because they are located outsides cities. The fact is that the junta simply does not have the forces needed to occupy and control any city, so this is why they go for objectives which are outside cities.Petr Poroshenko has announced that what the junta calls the “anti-terrorist operation” should not last for weeks, but only hours. So this begs the question: if the entire mix of junta forces (military + death-squads) have not succeeded in taking either Slaviansk (hab: 130’000)or Kramatorsk (hab: 165’000), what are their chances to take Donetsk (hab: 1’000’000)? Zero, of course. And even less than zero if that is to be done in a matter of a few days and hours.So what is the point of all this?Is it that the political leaders and the junta are simply stupid or completely miss-informed?No, it’s not that simple. For one thing, to speak of a “junta’s strategy” or “Poroshenko’s strategy” is plain wrong as this accepts they myth that that is an independent government in the Ukraine. There is none. Truly, all the decisions are taken by Uncle Sam and his representatives in Kiev and the so-called authorities are just the USA’s collaborators who simply take orders form their boss. And for all their sins, the folks in DC are neither stupid not poorly informed. So what is their strategy in this frankly weird civil war?Ideally, the first objective of the AngloZionists would be to trigger a Russian military intervention in protection of Novorossiia. That would re-create the kind of Cold War tensions these folks are so nostalgic for. It would give a justification for the existence of NATO and, if played well, it could even result in NATO and Russian forces looking at each other across the Dniepr river. Not only would such a situation be a dream come true for the US military-industrial complex, it would make it possible for the USA to achieve one of its most important strategic objective: to keep Europe colonized and to prevent any chance of its integration with the East. Far from being stupid, this strategy is nothing short of brilliant as it gives Putin only two choices: if Russia does not intervene Putin will look weak, indecisive, or even like a traitor to the Russian people, but if Russia does intervene, then Putin will be called the “New Hitler” or “New Stalin”, a crazed Russian nationalist hell-bent on re-building the Soviet Union and crushing the freedom-loving Europeans under his tanks. Are these cliches? Yes, of course, but they will be used. So for Putin its “damned if you do, and damned if you don’t”.Second option: to wear down the NDF to the point where they will eventually surrender. Not very likely, but in theory possible. Should that happen, this could be presented as a double victory for Poroshenko: he crushed the “terrorists” and he “deterred the Russian Bear”. Again, this is a lot of whishful thinking, but in theory the US might see that as a unlikely but possible outcome.Option three: the old US strategy of “what I cannot have, I burn down”. Basically, the strategy here is to destroy and damage as much of Novorossiia as possible, making a recovery as long and costly as possible. This is also a lesson to all those who dare defy the Empire: you disobey and we will make you pay.Russian options:As I mentioned above, Russia really has very few options to chose from. Any direct Russian intervention in the Ukraine – which in military terms would be a no-brainer – would have huge political consequences for the future of Europe’s stability. In essence, by not intervening Russia is denying the USA the Cold War v2 it wants so badly. Should Russia intervene, and that is very possible, it would mean that the Kremlin accepts that the real price of its intervention is a long term re-submission of all of Europe to US interests.Russia does, of course, have the option of covertly assisting the NDF and there is no doubt in my mind that it is already doing it, but this can only be done in a very careful and remote manner in order to avoid giving the US any proof of covert support. Still, advanced anti-air and anti-tank weapons are clearly shown on some videos which shows that somebody is helping the resistance.Russia has also begun leaking information about the Ukrainian units involved in terror operations against the people of the Donbass. For example, Russian TV has announced yesterday that the following units have been involved in the bombing of the Donetsk airport: the 299 Tactical Aviation Brigade from Nikolaev (Su-25) and the 40th Aviation Brigade from Vasilkovo (MiG-29) who use the Ivan Kozhedub Air Force University of Kharkov (Mi-24; Mi-8) as a combat operations basis. Russian bloggers have also leaked the photos and names of the pilots involved.Russian jurists have created special legal companies who take the testimony of the Ukrainians whose civil or human right have been violated by the junta to file lawsuits in Ukrainian courts. Of course, the Ukrainian courts are fully expected to reject the complaint at which point the Russian can then file their lawsuits at the European Court of Human Rights.The good news for Russia is that there is no way that the Junta can take Donetsk or Lugansk. And even if junta forces did enter these cities they would not be able to control them. The Russian military strategists understand that very well. After all, the Russians have more urban combat experience than any army in the world: during WWII the Soviet forces liberated 1200 cities form the German Army and that experience has been studied over and over again in the Russian military academies. Furthermore, while currently only a minority of the man of combat age in the Donbass have joined the NDF, the constant shelling and terror of the junta’s assault is motivating more and more of them to join the resistance.Time is on the side of Novorossiia and of Russia.My own feeling is that Poroshenko will soon fold and announce some kind of “peace initiative” which would probably not involve a complete withdrawal of junta forces from Novorossiia as demanded by the local authorities, but it will include a “suspension” of combat operations. Poroshenko – who is most definitely not a dumb man – knows that he absolutely must sit down and begin negotiating with the Russian and he also knows that the Russians simply cannot negotiate with him as long as active combat operations continue. I cannot prove that, but I believe that Poroshenko himself already understands all this and that what is happening now is that he is trying to convince the US of the need to accept the facts on the ground. Right now, Poroshenko can hide behind the tiny figleaf excuse that he has not been formally inaugurated, but that pretext will vanish pretty soon (on June 7th) and I suspect that as soon following his inauguration he will announce some kind of peace initiative.Until then, the Russians will have to wait and grind their teeth at the news of every atrocity committed by the junta’s neo-Nazi death-squads. Payback time will come, but the first priority will have to be to deny the AngloZionists the Cold War they are so desperately trying to trigger..The SakerPS: as a small footnote: to those of you who can read Russian and who have an Android device (smartphone or tablet) there is a new and very interesting application called ÐежливÑе ÐÑди available from the Google Play (aka Android Store) called .

Ukraine SITREP May 25th, 22:52 UTC/Zulu: Coming full circle with some cautious hope?

What was the main demand of the Maidanites? Oh yes, to expel the a fat corrupt leader. Now, several months later it sure looks to me that they traded on fat and corrupt leader for another one. The big difference being that Yahukovich at least did not use force against his own people. Poroshenko has no such problems.Ukie oligarchs v2.0The other difference – of sorts – is, I suppose, that the western corporate media called Yanukovich an oligarch. Not so Poroshenko. He is no oligarch. He is a tycoon. Same difference, of course, but one designates a bad guy, while the other is spoken with a sense of admiration for the resourcefulness of the latter.Was there ballot rigging and/or other irregularities? Yes, probably. Does it matter? No, not at all. That big money would win the election was inevitable. That is the case in all so-called democracies, including the US, why should it be different in the Ukraine?Timoshenko got only 12.8%. That is actually pretty good news since she clearly has had mental issues every since she was freed from Yanukovich’s dungeons. Here are the other preliminary results according to RT: All other candidates gathered less than 10 percent of votes each, with anti-Russian populist Oleg Lyashko, the head of the Radical Party, running behind with 8 percent, former defense minister Anatoly Gritsenko taking 6.3 percent and expelled Party of Regions MP Sergey Tigipko â 4.7 percent of votes. The candidate picked by the Party of Regions of the ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich, Mikhail Dobkin, gathered just 2.1 percent. Some 1.1 percent voted for Ukrainian Communist Party leader, Pyotr Simonenko, despite his recent announcement that he had withdrawn from the elections. Ultra-right radical nationalists appeared to have completely failed in the elections, with Svoboda (Freedom) Party head Oleg Tyagnibok securing 1.3 percent of votes and Right Sector leader Dmitry Yarosh less than one percent. The bad news is that there are 8% of Ukrainians capable of voting for a lunatic like Lyashko. The good news is that the Party of Regions, the Communist Party, the Freedom Party and the Right sector are all dead in the water with terrible results. For Moscow this is also a case of coming full circle. Why? For all the western propaganda Yanukovich was never pro-Russia or a friend of Putin. Neither will Poroshenko. Yanukovich was corrupt, so is Poroshenko, both of them will go with the higher bidder. Yanukovich did not have what it takes to impose his authority over the Maidanites and neo-Nazis, while whether Poroshenko can do better is an open question, at least to me.So considering the alternatives, I think that even if the election of Poroshenko was a farce in terms of democracy, it is certainly not the worst result. At least Poroshenko is not a raving lunatic and, in the context of the current situation, this is already a lot.This is the reason why Moscow, which clearly knew that Poroshenko would purchase this election, said that Russia was willing to work with the new President: because there is some hope that Poroshenko could take a more pragmatic approach. Whether this hope is realistic is another issue, but what counts at this point in time is simply that Poroshenko is not Timoshenko. That is good enough, at least at this point in time.Big money won. That is certain. The big question now is whether Poroshenko has what it takes to crack down on the crazies and effectively crush them. I am not so sure, but I do believe that at least with Poroshenko in power there is some hope, no matter how small, that the AngloZionist will *finally* sit down and seriously negotiate with Russia and the southeast of the Ukraine.According to the RT article I mentioned above, Poroshenko has declared that “we will have a united and unitary, not federative state.â He also also that a “decisive step will be aimed at ending the war, ending chaos, and bringing peace to a united and free Ukraine. I am certain that our decisive actions will bring fairly quick results. We cannot discuss the seriousness of security in our region without the participation of Russia. We will find the format and definitely will meet Putin.” I personally think that these are two mutually exclusive propositions, but my hope is that the first is empty electoral rhetoric while the second is Poroshenko’s real objective. We shall see.In the meantime, the real big story this week was not in the Ukraine, but in Shanghai were Russia the China has formalized what is clearly a strategic alliance even if they never used that term. It is deeply ironical that the AngloZionist policy of trying to prevent Russia from becoming a superpower by bringing the Ukraine under the protectorate of the EU and NATO has so greatly contributed into creating the Russia-China alliance, something for more formidable than any rapprochement between Russia and the Ukraine.I will discuss this tectonic shift in world politics in an upcoming and separate post.Cheers to all,The Saker

Many of you have commented on Gordon Duff, Press TV and the “Dimitri Khalezov theory” about nukes being used on 911. I just want to tell you that I rate the credibility of Press TV as “poor”, of Gordon Duff and “Veterans Today” as “terrible” and Dimitry Khazelov as “unknown”. However, one should rate the source and the information given by the source. So to this I will say thata) there is no physical evidence of the use of a nuke on 911.b) there is overwhelming evidence of the use of explosives (probably a mix of various types) on 911.Also, there is the pesky problem of WTC7 which was a very different building from WTC1 and WTC2 whose collapse mechanism was clearly different. Explosives can – and have – explained it. The nuke hypothesis does not.I don’t think that I have the time to go into a detailed discussion of 9/11 now, but for those of you who might wonder why I believe, please see this post (the links in the post are dead, but if there is a demand for it, I can re-upload the documents in question).As for some US officials selling nukes I will say this: I rate Sibel Edmonds as a “good” source and the info she provides is compatible with what I know. However, it is one thing to sell nuclear technology to Israel or Turkey and quite another to make it widely available. In other words, I am not at all sure that the sale of these technologies has been nearly as big as some might believe. Generally, I dislike sensationalism. I try to keep an open mind, but as Carl Sagan liked to say, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. I am willing to consider pretty much any theory about 9/11, except the ridiculous official fairytale of course, but it better be backed by some solid research and good evidence. Right now, I see the “controlled demolition” as proven far beyond reasonable doubt, so any other theory would have to do better, which would be very hard indeed.Kind regards,The Saker

May 30th combat SITREP by "Juan"

1. Sporadic and heavy at times fighting around Slavyansk and the outlying villages on 29 May with no notable successes for the Nats Army and national guard units. Some losses reported for the national guard units. 2. A half battery of Grad missile launchers, BM-21, is in position within range of Mariupol. As of this morning that unit has not fired. Range of Grad missile is up to 35 kilometers. 3. A half battery of Grad missile launchers is in position within range of Slavyansk. 4. I have no positive verification of a Grad missile attack on Slavyansk. This does not mean an attack did not occur. Something very large and multiple did hit the outskirts of an outlying village but I have no source at the impact spots to verify what the impacts were.5. Sources report that the Donbas Army action at Donetsk Airport was a trap involving proposed negotiations with certain Ukraine Army units under the auspices of a western organization in Donetsk at that time. Sources report that shortly after the negotiations started the Ukraine Army sent in by air strong reinforcements to their unit in airport as the Ukraine Army units in airport attacked the Donbas Army unit. 6. The transport of the Donbas Army wounded in convoy out of the airport area late Monday evening was arranged as a truce to succor the wounded. The two Kamaz transport trucks were each flying a red cross flag and a white flag of truce. They drove in to an ambush set up by right sector/national guard units. The drivers of both trucks were killed. One truck overturned after striking a curb. The other truck was hit by an RPG round. The surviving wounded were killed by right sector on the spot. As the wounded were being killed the two flags were removed from each truck by right sector operatives. 7. Partisan activity has started 3 days ago in Kharkov Oblast around Kharkov City among other areas targeting national guard/right sector units. 29 May losses to two national guard/right sector units were heavy in ambushes.8. Vostok Battalion 29 May started an operation around Donetsk Administration Building of the Donbas Republic to stop looting by certain Donbas Army members after strong complaints from citizens. Metro supermarket near the airport was heavily looted by Donbas Army members as were several other shops and stores and much of the loot was stored in 3 tents in the area of Donbas Administration Building, one tent having the contents and perpetrators shown on video. Reports are 7 looters were arrested and are awaiting trial. Reports from Ukraine and west media that the looters were shot are false. 9. After the anti looting operation was completed Vostok Battalion had the square in front of Donbas Administration Building cleared of the barricades to provide access for citizens to the facility and to facilitate easier defense of the area in the event of a Ukraine attack. 10. Civilian casualties in Donbas are mounting with the random artillery attacks by units of the Ukraine Army and national guard/right sector. 29 May saw 8 civilians killed in Donbas and a like number of wounded. Some of these casualties were caused by air burst antipersonnel rounds fired from howitzers of the Ukraine Army. Targets are living areas with flats buildings with no visible Donbas Army units in the areas. 12. Families of mobilized Ukraine Army reservists held a large demonstration in Kiev at the Ukraine Parliament Building demanding the return of their husbands and sons. By Ukraine law reservists can not be mobilized for more than 45 days without a declaration of war against another sovereign state by Ukraine. This declaration of war has not been made. Kiev has ordered the mobilization extended indefinitely. 13. One of the two Ukrainian helicopters shot down on 29 May was carrying the commanding general of the ‘national guard’ who was also ‘the commander of field operations for national guard units’. 14. Ukraine has rejected the offer of humanitarian aid from Russian Federation for the two Oblasti of Donetsk and Lugansk. 15. An attempt on 29 May to evacuate children from certain areas of Slavyansk was unsuccessful. Ukraine Army units blockading the city refused passage to the buses carrying the children. 16. A refugee processing center has been set up in the Federal City of Sevastopol of the Russian Federation to aid in the settlement of refugees arriving from areas of fighting in Ukraine. Several hundred refugees have arrived in Sevastopol as of 17:00 29 May and are being housed and fed in the city. A like number are being succored in Simferopol, the capitol of the Autonomous Republic of Krimea of the Russian Federation. A processing center is schedule to be set up 30 May in Simferopol to help the refugees. More refugees are expected in both cities. A like facility for refugees will be set up in the eastern Krimea city of Kerch if needed.

Speech of Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah commemorating the Day of Resistance and Liberation held in the Southern village of Bint Jbeil on May 25th, 2014

Foreword by the Saker: those of you who are new to this blog might not know it, but in the past I have always posted the translated speeches of the Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah for two reasons: first, I have an infinite respect and admiration for the man himself and for his movement, but also because I believe that being exposed to his views is absolutely mandatory for anybody who wants to understand the Middle-East. I would also note that unlike almost every political leader in the Middle-East or even the world, Hassan Nasrallah is known for speaking the truth, for not lying, not posturing. Even in Israel they know that if he says something you can take it to the bank. At most, Nasrallah might not address a topic, but he never lies, at least to my knowledge.But today, in the context of the war in the Donbass/Novorossiia I find his speech exceptionally valuable because Hezbollah is without any doubt the most sophisticated resistance movement on the planet, light-years ahead of whomever we could think of as #2. The village where he made the speech I am posting below is literally right across the Israeli border and yet in 33 days of absolutely massive attacks involving the absolutely best units and even formations the Israelis had, they could not take Bint Jbeil. Ever since this village has been nicknamed “Nasrallahgrad”.The new, “junior”, resistance in Kramatorsk, Slaviansk, Krasnyi Liman, Odessa, Donetsk, Lugansk and the rest of Novorosiia needs to learn for the most experienced and capable resistance movement on the planet: Slaviansk or Kramatorsk can and must be turned into BinJbeil.My hope is that all of us who support the resistance to the AngloZionist Empire worldwide learn from Hezbollah, from its exemplary tolerance and respect for other religions and ethnic groups, to its unique respect for human rights (merciful policy towards the SLA) to its outstanding combat capabilities. At a time when both Zionism and Wahabism are working hand in hand to take over the entire Middle-East, Hezbollah not only protects the people of Lebanon, it even plays a crucial role in the war against Syria. Truly Hezbollah has a lot for offer to those willing to learn it. The Saker

Russia, Chechnia and the Ukraine

As you probably know, the two Russian journalists who worked for the LifeNews, Oleg Sidyakin and Marat Saichenko, were finally freed and brought back home via Grozny in Chechnia. You might even have heard that the President of Chechnia, Ramzan Kadyrov, played a special role in their liberation. I think that the importance of this event might be under-estimated by many observers and I want to briefly comment on that.It all really began in Crimea where, before the operation of the Russian Polite Armed Men in Green (PAMG), when there were some very serious tensions between the various parties including the Muslim Tatars. At that time, Ramzan Kadyrov for the first time made a statement from faraway Grozny saying that he will not tolerate any “abuses against the Chechen” minority in Crimea. Since there are not all that many Chechens in Crimea and since soon thereafter PAMG solved the problem anyway, this statement was rapidly forgotten. But think again, besides being a statement in support of the Chechens in Crimea, who was that statement directed against? Clearly, the threatened party was not the pro-Russian one, but the pro-Ukrainian forces, including those Tatars (mainly linked to Turkey) who had been manipulated by the USA to take action against the pro-Russian population of Crimea. It is now clear that what happened in this instance is that Kadyrov did openly say that which Putin could not (for obvious political reasons). In the end, it was Putin who eventually engaged his PAMG, but it was Kadyrov who had made the threat.This time again, Kadyrov got involved by issuing an amazing statement which most commentators overlooked. Here is what he said about the two kidnapped reporters:The Ukraine’s leadership continues to use Fascist methods. We demand the immediate release of Sidyakin and Saychenko. If the folks in Kiev don’t come back to their senses and do not let these journalists go back home, we will not stand by in silence and watch as mock them, for them to their knees and keep them with bags on their heads. We have the forces and the capabilities to influence those who are holding these journalists in captivity. I therefore advise them to free these journalists or otherwise we will have resort to some tough actions.I don’t know about you, but when I read that I went “wow!”. There is a Chechen President (who is also and-ex warlord) who is clearly giving the Ukies an ultimatum which they better not ignore. They didn’t.During 4 days of secret negotiations a group of Chechen negotiators sent by Kadyrov flew to Kiev in his personal jet and had some very frank conversations with the right people in Kiev. The Chechens probably used the typical mix of threats and bribes to prevail and, as a direct result of this operation, the two reporters were freed.What is very interesting, is that there is mounting evidence that Putin was involved all along even though he never said a word about it. First, it is well know that Putin is personally very close to Kadyrov and that a strong friendship binds these two men who have immense respect for each other. But now we can also make sense of a comment made by Putin who declared that the kidnapped journalists were kept in a “zindan” (a prison hole in the ground), something which he apparently learned through Kadyrov’s people in Kiev. Finally, one has to know Kadrov’s quasi obsession in stressing at every step that he is always acting exclusively with the full support of the Kremlin to completely exclude the possibility of a unilateral action on Kadyrov’s side.This time again, Kadyrov said that which Putin could not say.It was also interesting for me to hear the testimony of the two reporters who told that they understood that something dramatic had changed in their condition when they heard a voice pick up the phone and say “salaam aleikum”. Soon thereafter their handcuffs were taken off and they were told “take off the hood off your heads, you are safe now, you are under the protection of the President of Chechnia”.Why do I consider this so important?Because the image of Chechnia and the Chechens is radically changing in Russia. The media openly calls Kadyrov a hero and Russian citizens rejoice when they hear the Islamic “salaam aleikum” because they know that they are now safe. This is huge! What a change from only 10 years ago.Kadyrov in reality plays a role which is a much bigger one than “just” the President of Chechnia (and a hugely successful one at that!). He is clearly Putin’s “ally number 1”, especially in security matters, and the two men clearly work closely together as a kind of “tag team”. This kind of special role does a lot to restore the pride of the Chechen people and it also does a lot to change the terrible image many Russians had of Chechens as a result of the horrors of the time when Chechnia was ruled by psychopathic Wahabis. Instead of being “terrorist barbarians” the Chechens are now increasingly seen as tough and reliable allies of Russia and of the Russian President.As for the Chechens, they are still feared, but this time outside Russia. During the 08.08.08 war the Georgians ran as fast as they could as soon as they heard that the Chechen battalion had arrived. Nowadays, the Ukraine is full of rumors that Chechens have arrived to support the Donetsk and Lugansk republics. To my knowlege this has not happened (yet?) and apparently there is some confusion between a “Vostok battalion” (Eastern battalion) in the Ukraine and the Chechen “Vostok battalion” which saw action in 08.08.08. The former is composed of local volunteers from the Donbass while the latter is now formally part of the 291st Motor-Rifle regiment of the 42nd Guard Motor-Rifle Division of the Russian armed forces. But I would not put it past Kadyrov to send in Chechen special forces as “volunteers” into the Donbass if things get really ugly there. Of course, the key thing would be to get Putin’s go ahead for such a move.I find that absolutely remarkable. By 2000 Chechnia was in ruins, a huge amount of Chechens had been killed, Grozny was was completely destroyed and plans were made to abandon the city and build a new capital elsewhere. Almost all western experts were unanimous in their conclusion that the guerrilla war and terrorism operations would never stop and that Chechnia would become a “constantly bleeding wound in the soft underbelly of Russia” or some equally stupid cliche. Now, 14 years later, Grozny is a superb city, traditional Islam has completely replaced Wahabism, Chechen terrorists and warlords have all been eliminated one by one, Chechnia has a very low crime rate, French actor Gerard Depardieu has an apartment in downtown Grozny, Russians increasingly see Chechens as their toughest and most dependable allies and the enemies of Russia literally tremble in fear at the possibility that “the Chechens might come”. Who could have ever imagined that?!Will that be enough to heal the wounds of the past?I don’t know for sure, but I fervently hope so. For one thing I will always blame the regime of Eltsin and his Jewish oligarchs more than Dudaev and his Chechen followers for the first Chechen war. True, what the Chechens did during and after that war was simply beyond barbaric and I fully supported the 2nd Chechen war in which Russia simply did what had to be done (and did so brilliantly). So I believe that both sides share the guilt and the pain of what happened. Still, Russia is so much bigger and more powerful that the Chechens who had no chance as soon as the Russian people supported the military action (which was not the case in the first Chechen war) and I believe that Akhmad Kadyrov had the wisdom to see that this war would end up in the quasi-total elimination of the Chechen people and that it had to be stopped. I think that Putin also understood this and that he believed that such an outcome would also be a disaster for Russia. So these two men did the unthinkable and stopped a war which was about to turn into a total war until one side would wipe out the other. It is as easy for me to write these terrible words as it is for you to read them. But think about it, we are truly talking about an unspeakable horror which almost happened. And the murder of Akhmad Kadyrov could have made this outcome inevitable had it not been for his son Ramzan who replaced his father and did an absolutely brilliant job to make his dream come true: Chechnia today is both Islamic and free. It has a huge degree of autonomy, but it also is the most faithful and strongest ally of the Russian President. I would even say that Chechnia is the single most important factor of stability in the entire Caucasus region.I am under no illusion about the possibility of a “Ukrainian Kadyrov” appearing on the world scene anytime soon. But if such a miracle could happen in Chechnia, I want to at least hope that it is possible in a future Ukraine, one freed from oligarchs and Nazis as much as Chechnia is now Wahabi-free.Hope dies last and this is a hope I simply want to keep in my heart, no matter how naive it might seem to the “realists” out there. I don’t want to believe that a “Banderastan” can survive in what is a Christian holy land for which literally millions of people died to keep in Orthodox and free. Right now the picture out of the Ukraine is a terrible one. But Chechnia in 2000 was even worse. So I will keep hoping.The Saker

Does Russia really need the Ukrainian military

I really like the Asia Times, but the article I saw in it today left me wondering how it could have gotten past the editors. The article in question is Ukraine: A military-industrial complex to die for by Gregory J Moore. While I most definitely encourage you to read the article in its entirety, its thesis is simple: the Ukrainian military-industrial complex is, if not vital, then at least crucial for Russia. Moore gives several examples which I want to quote here:1) Antonov is not a Russian aircraft manufacturer, its Ukrainian 2) The Ukraine builds many aircraft and helicopter engines3) The Ukraine builds missiles, rockets and the SS184) The Ukraine accounts for 30% of the USSR’s shipbuilding industry5) The Ukraine builds APCs and tanks including the T-846) The Ukraine builds air-to-air, surface-to-air and cruise missiles And all this is true. So what is the problem here?The problem is that all the examples Moore gives are Soviet-era systems. Even the T-84 is nothing but an upgraded T-80. The Ukraine, just like Russia, has inherited a lot of top-quality Soviet technologies. These technologies were, in fact, so good, that both the Ukraine and Russia could literally “coast” for almost 20 years on that technological basis without really developing any truly new systems. A good example of that is the SS-18 missile which is still one of the most powerful ones on the planet. But it’s design is really late 1950s early 1960s technology and it runs on liquid fuel. And yet the Russian Ministry of Defense recently wanted to purchase more of these missile. Why? Money: the Ukrainians were willing to sell them cheap. Now the deal appears dead, much to the delight of the Russian military which did not want that missile to begin with, but which had been told that it was the cheaper solution to a more expensive but also more modern purely Russian alternative.And here is the key issue here: Russia does not need the Ukrainian MIC, Russia could produce all it needs indigenously, but that would be more expensive. So why spend more when you can spend less and use the difference in developing other sectors?When the Soviet Union broke apart Russia lost not only the Ukraine but another 13 republics many of which had Soviet MIC resources and many have wondered whether Russia could go by without them. The test of that proposition is simple: can Russia produce completely new weapon systems or not? And the clear answer is yes – Russia can and Russia has.Take, for example, the new Russian submarines (Borei-class or Yasen-class), new combat aircraft (Su-34 of PAKFA), new tanks (Armata), new ICBMs (SS-27) or SLBMs (SS-N-32). Now, of course, since the weapons-design cycle is very long, all these systems have their origins in Soviet designs, and some might even have part purchased from the Ukraine (or other ex-Soviet states). But the fact that Russia assembled, tested and deployed these systems proves that Russia has the technological know-how to control all the technologies used in them. This is especially true of very complex systems like submarines or advanced combat aircraft. For the general military, the goal is to have the Russian armed forces equipped with new military systems for 70% of all its equipment by 2020. That is ambitious but doable.At least two top Russian weapons experts (Dmitri Rogozin and Igor Korotchenko) have addressed the issue of the importance of the Ukrainian MIC and, on one occasion, even Putin himself. All three were categorical: a possible “loss” of the Ukrainian MIC for Russia is not a problem for Russia at all, but the perfect opportunity to allocate the funds needed to develop indigenous and much more modern capabilities in Russia. This is exactly the same situation as with the western credit card companies: the US sanctions provided Russia with a much needed pretext and opportunity to develop a Russian credit card system which, as it has been announced in Shanghai, will be compatible with the Chinese one.Speaking of China: China is the *perfect* partner for Russia in nearly all economic terms, especially in the military-industrial cooperation. And, unlike the Ukrainian technologies, the Chinese technologies are far more modern, if probably more expensive.Putin and Medvedev have already set as a strategic goal for Russia to become fully independent from foreign suppliers for all its strategic needs. Dumping the Ukrainian MIC is just a logical step towards this goal. It is an opportunity for Russia, not a problem.Moore concludes by saying that “The value and importance of Ukraine’s military industrial complex to Russia is an important reason Moscow will not let go of eastern and southern Ukraine, and consequently it may be that sanctions alone will not be enough to make Putin back down.” I completely disagree. Not only does Russia not “want” the Ukraine or even the Donbass, it is going out of its way to avoid having to “own” it (following a hypothetical intervention). The very last thing Russia needs is to have to support a huge population working on 20-year old technologies which nobody wants and which Russia does not really need. By the way, and for the very same reasons, neither does the EU or US need to Ukrainain MIC: they have their own which is much more modern and which they control.I will say it again and again and again. Russia does not need the Ukraine, not its lands, not its MIC, not its coal and not its people. What was true in 1991 is not true any more in 2014. Furthermore, the Ukrainian oligarchs have truly destroyed the whole country and laid waste to its MIC: did you know that the top 50 Ukrainian oligarchs own 50% of the Ukraine’s GDP? It is mind boggling, really. Or why do you think that the Ukrainians are still using (old) Mi-24s used in Africa by the UN instead of their own helicopters? Because that is all that they have left, literally! Recently, when the Russians took control of Crimea they found out that even the most prestigious youth camp (Artek) was in a state of total abandonment. The oligarchs neglected even that jewel.For years Russia had tried to make some kind of deal with the Ukrainians to develop a very interesting advanced transport aircraft: the AN-70. But the Ukrainian politicians were making such ridiculous demands that the Russians eventually walked away in disgust (they ended up making a deep upgrade the IL-76 and they are now developing a wide-body long range transport aircraft with China which will probably have civilian and military variants). So even if Yanukovich was still in power, how could Russia trust such completely unreliable partners?The sad reality is that the Russians cannot trust the Ukrainians with anything. Not even paying their bills, nevermind participating in strategic military-industrial projects. For that Russia now has China. Let the EU “enjoy” its new found partnership with the Ukraine. Good luck to them!The Saker

Why does Russia not leak the names of the war criminals?

While Nazi death squads are roaming around the Donbass and murdering civilians and “their own” soldiers the Kremlin’s response seems to be limited to two aspects: denouncing the atrocities on the ground and providing truthful information to the Ukrainian population (via the Russian media) and the world (via RT). This is good, but not enough.I am pretty confident that the GRU knows all the Ukrainian unit commanders down to the company commander (usually a Senior/First Lieutenant). This is standard practice for any military intelligence agency. They most definitely know (or should know) all the names of the brigade HQ officers and above. Finally, I would also bet that all the names of the senior Right Sector and various death squads commanders are also known to the GRU.So why not leak them to the media?Let it be know that if you give a criminal order your name will become public which, while not as unpleasant as a court-martial for war crimes, could still be very, very unpleasant for the folks thus singled out.The Russians could begin by a small leak, just a few names, and then make it known that “more names shall be leaked as circumstances warrant it”. This would create quite a panic, at least amongst regular Ukrainian army commanders, the pilots of rotary or fixed wing aircraft, artillery battery commanders, especially if the penalty for being put on such a list is left deliberately vague. And it could save a lot of lives.Alas, it appears that the traditional GRU mania for secrecy is still the rule and that the appointment of a relatively young GRU Chief (Igor Sergun) has not heralded a new era in this traditionally most conservative branch of the Russian military.But maybe another, more forward looking agency, could make a few suggestions to the right people?The Saker

The Chechens and Ramzan Kadyrov

After my recent post about Chechnia and the hope it gives me, one reader posted a particularly interesting comment which, I believe, deserves a full answer. One thing which particularly motivated me to write this more detailed reply rather that a shot comment-reply was that what this reader wrote almost exactly mirrored my own thoughts just a few years ago. So in replying to this reader I have the opportunity to explain why I changed my opinion about Ramzan Kadyrov and the Chechen people today. So let’s take the comments of this reader one by one:1. âImage of Chechnia and Chechens is radically changing in Russiaâ. In reality, Chechens are being considered what they are â thugs from the mountains, using knives and guns without hesitation after slightest provocation, for example in a restaurant, against usually barehanded adversaries. What is worse, itâs well known that they will get away with it even with blood on their hands. Officials will be bribed or intimidated, so no one will be prosecuted. Even if the case gets to a court â well, persons involved will just go back to Caucasus, where local police will never try to catch them. These guys go through the downtown Moscow in dozens of cars, shooting live ammunition into the air and surrounding vehicles, and again, with impunity. So â there is no change in attitude towards Chechens: they are feared and hated. And since they are really a very small minority the only thing keeping them from being harassed and killed one by one is support from the police, judicial and special services. Sad but true. Google phrases below, if interested. Click images section or youtube if you donât know Russian: ÐавказÑкий авÑопÑобег. СÑÑелÑÑÑÐ°Ñ ÑвадÑба.There is much truth to what you write. However, what is important here is this: what is Ramzan Kadyrov’s stance on the actions of these Chechens? The reply is that he calls such behavior a disgrace for Chechens and that he demands that Chechen behave more courteously and more respectfully than any other ethnic group. He not only says so, he takes action which one famous case illustrates very well. There is this volunteer group in many regions of Russia called “Stop Kham” (stop the rude person”) which confronts rude drivers and which glues a big sticker on the front window of cars parked illegally (you can find their videos on YouTube, some with English captions; they are quite fun to watch). One day they confronted a rich and arrogant woman who, as it turned out, was the wife of a senior Chechen official. She got really angry and called up some “body guards aka thugs” and a big fight ensued. When Kadyrov learned about that he immediately dismissed the official. So yes, there is a lot of Chechen thuggery and banditry, but that is not behavior Islam approves (often the Chechens acting this way are drunk) and Kadyrov tries as hard as can be to crack down on such behavior.2. Media calls Kadyrov hero? Thatâs because he was awarded with the Golden star (highest Russian decoration) and title of Hero of Russian Federation, move, that caused sheer outrage and disgust in the Russian military. He is also called academic, which is also true. When Kadyrov is called a hero in media, there is /sarc tag in 100% cases. The tag you are probably missing.Did you watch the latest ÐеÑÑи Ðедели Ñ ÐмиÑÑием ÐиÑелевÑм (Weekly News with Dimitri Kiselev)? He clearly means it when he says that Kadyrov is a hero and, as I am sure you know, Kiselev is arguable the most powerful and influential person in the Russian media right now. As for the Russian military being disgusted with Kadyrov getting the medal of “Hero of Russia” this makes sense: he used to be a Chechen warlord who switched sides after all. But look what he did after that? His father was murdered and he inherited a horrible situation in Chechnia and yet he achieved what was in theory impossible: there are no more terrorist gangs to guerrilla warloards in Chechnia. And look at the key role Chechen security forces have played in their elimination, including the recent one of Doku Umarov. Does that not deserve the title of Hero of Russia? I think that is completely does and any Russian with such achievements would have obtained it.3. Kadyrov is really playing very important role. He (actually, his father) was chosen to become a rat wolf of a kind. A creature trained to eradicate its fellow rats, i.e. warlords, that failed to strike deal with the Kremlin first. Was that necessary to bring up such creature? The answer is likely âyesâ. It was cost-effective solution. But that doesnât change Kadyrov from what he is, nor it helps to improve attitude towards him. Nothing will help here, i think.You are making one huge assumption here: that in essence folks like Maskhadov, Dudaev, Umarov, Basaev, Iandarbiev, Raduev, Zakaev or Baraev are of the same nature as Kadyrov. That they are all rats. I totally disagree. The former were thugs and liars, they made a mockery of Islam and they used Wahabi Islam as a cover for their banditry and mobster activities. They were in for the money first and foremost, for power second and for hatred third. These guys were truly vicious rats, the scum of the earth, and they have to be eliminated one by one. I believe that Kadyrov is truly religious and that his goal is categorically different: he is trying to built up a peaceful and prosperous Chechnia and for that he puts his life on the line each day. Can I prove it? No. Can you? No. Neither of us are mind-readers. So it is your deeply held and sincere conviction versus mine. All I can say is that I used to think exactly like you do. Two things made me re-consider: discussions with Chechens and listening to Kadyrov in interviews.4. After elimination of most rivaling warlords Chechnya is living quite well, thanks to the money they got from the federal state budget. Money, that doesnât go to other regions, that is. They build great mosques and skyscrapers (skyscrapers, for godâs sake, in a rural area!) at expense of regions of Russia proper. Itâs well known, and causes a lot of tensions too.Is Kadyrov wealthy? Yes. Does a lot of money come from the Federal Center. Yes. So what? Kadyrov is no richer than any other regional leader and pouring money into Chechnia was an absolute necessity to prevent the return to another civil war fueled by criminal gangs. Does Chechnia need great mosques and skyscrapers? First, it is not for us to judge what they want to do in their own country as long as they don’t act against Russia. But second yes, I do believe that Chechnia badly needed big mosques and skyscrapers! Why? To restore the badly hurt pride and self-confidence of the people and to give them a sense of hope for the future. In New York they figured that neighborhoods with broken windows and painted tags foster crime. So they decided to fix that and it worked. Same thing for Grozny: these construction are a powerful, visible, signal of what Chechnia wants to become and that is essentially for a city which has almost been leveled to the ground.One last thing: it would be naive in the extreme to compare Kadyrov to Buddha, Gandhi or Saint Seraphim of Sarov. The main cannot simply press a button and transmute himself into a Sergei Lavrov kind of refined intellectual. Besides, while a person like Lavrov is needed in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he would not make a good leader in Chechnia. I think that Kadyrov should be compared to another Hero of Russia: General Shamanov who also did a fantastic job in Chechnia, who is equally hated by western “human rights” professionals and who is himself not averse to take some, shall we say, semi-legal actions. These are tough guys, hard has iron, both personally very courageous and both merciless to their enemies. These are folks you do not want to mess with and you definitely want them on your side. But are they both also intensely patriotic and intensely committed to their ideals? I believe so. Of course, just like with Kadyrov, we don’t really know what Shamanov really thinks or what he believes in. But I think that this is a fair comparison: Kadyrov and Shamanov. Neither of them will ever become a refined intellectual and both will always remain dangerous predators in their heart. That is exactly the kind of persons Russia needs in the Caucasus today: to keep any wannabe Georgian, Dagestani or Ukrainian enemies of Russia frightened and deter them from taking any hostile action. At least this is my personal conclusion.Kind regards and many thanks,The Saker

Ukrainian nationalism: an image is worth a thousand words

Normally, when somebody is presented a sword or another weapon, it is the person accepting the gift which is supposed to stand on his knees to receive it, not the person giving it. But in Banderastan, things are always the opposite of what they should be.Check out the photo below. It shows a Ukie general standing on his knees to offer a sword to John F. Tefft, US Ambassador to the Ukraine (now retired):From the servant to the masterAmazing, no?Even more telling is that this picture was taken in November of 2013, right before the current crisis began. As for Ukie sources, they say that this photo shows the moment when Tefft, whose name is often mentioned as the next US Ambassador in Russia, is being received into the Ukrainian Cossacks as a “kind Baptist and US Ambassador”. What can I say? “Glory to the Ukraine, to the heroes glory!”?The Saker

Interesting interview of Alexander Borodai, the Prime Minister of the Donetsk People’s Republic

Tonight the Russian TV showed a rather interesting live interview of Alexander Borodai, the Prime Minister of the self-declared “Donetsk People’s Republic”. Alexander Borodai interviewed while protected by his anti-sniper teamHere is a summary of his statements: There are no combats inside Donetsk proper.The DPR forces fully control all of the city.The Right Sector fully controls the airport.The junta’s air force make regular overflights of the city of Donetsk but they are not bombing or conducting air strikes.The Ukrainian military tries to avoid combat with the forces of the DPR, but they are forced to do so by the Right Sector death squads who threaten them and their families.The DPR forces are also trying to avoid engaging the Ukrainian military.There are no negotiations between the DPR and Kiev, only regular exchanges of prisoners.Kiev regularly sends negotiators to try to make a deal, but the DPR officials demand a full withdrawal of all Ukrainian forces from the DPR before any negotiations can take place.Donetsk is fully surrounded. Banks to not function any more. All roads are closed, and only a few vehicles can enter or leave the city.Many mines are on strike and miners are organizing a protest meeting.

Russia gives 240 million Euros to Syria

The news agency Regnum has announced that Russia will give Syria 240 million Euros to help it pay for its social programs. 46 millions will be donated and the rest of the sum loaned. This agreement was negotiated by Dmitri Rogozin during his recent trip to Syria. The agreement will not require any additional spending for the Russian budget as both side have agreed to a “debt in exchange for financial assistance” deal settling the issue of the payments Syria owed Russia before the war began and which it could not pay.The Saker

Clarifications about certain issues mentioned in today’s SITREP

As is often the case, my previous SITREP has touched superficially on a number of issues which have raised some eyebrows and, since I have the time, I feel that it might be a good thing to clarify my position on some of them.A “limited” Russian military optionFirst, this is clearly a possibility whose main quality is that is falls short of a full-scale ground operation. However, those who advocate for this option often do not really understand what it entails. Let me give you an example by using a grand favorite of Americans: a no-fly zone.The standard US/NATO practice if to precede the imposition of a no-fly zone by a almost total suppression of enemy air defenses. US/NATO generals always do that because they want to make it look like this is a clean, victim-less operation since, after all, nobody gives a damn about who many “bad guys” die as long as “our boys” come home. The problem with that is that a total suppression of enemy air defenses rarely works. This is particularly true of the Ukraine which holds large stocks of Soviet air defense systems which remain very capable even when old are. I remind you that the super-dooper mega-secret “invisible” and “we own the night” US F-117 stealth fighter bomber was shot down by an export version of the 1960s Soviet 125 Neva/Pechora (SA-3 GOA in the NATO classification) air defense system. The US also lost another two F-117 to the Iraqi Air Defenses (I know that for a fact, but that is officially denied). The Ukraine inherited some very powerful systems like the S-300, S-300V, several versions of the Buk, the Tunguska and the Igla MANPADs. They are not as new as the Russian systems, but they are still way more capable then anything Yugoslavia had. Furthermore, we also know from the war in Georgia that Ukie air defense systems have been modernized by the Ukrainians themselves and, in some cases, with Israeli help. So while the Ukrainian military is more or less a joke, the Ukrainian air defense capabilities are not to be dismissed too easily. In other words, it is one thing to impose an no-fly zone over Libya and a very different thing to try that with the Donbass.Also, this scenario simply assumes that the Ukies will take a Russian attack sitting like ducks and without taking action. This is naive. There are a lot of very capable senior officers in the Ukrainian military and they know that just sitting and waiting is no option. Does anybody know what they might or might not do if the Russians attack? I sure don’t.Limited and “no fly zone” types of operations have this way of getting out of control which makes them all very risky.Finally, while there are people dying every day in the Donbass, there will be many more people dying if Russia intervenes.Wars are messy and ugly and they typically refuse to proceed according to the plans of those who start them. This is why Russia is doing the right thing by avoiding such a war for as long as it is possible.Objections to my mentioning the “sads”This time again I got not only comments but even emails objecting to my reference to the “sads”. My recent post of the Conchita Wurst photo with a bearded man from the Donbass has also irked some readers. Mostly what I am told is this:”stop your anti-sads rethoric or your readers will be upset” (of course, were I use “sad” they use “gay”). My reply is simple:I never wrote a single word on this blog with the intent to become popular or not to ruffle any feathers. If fact, I don’t give a damn about catering to the modern sociological and cultural trends of the day. I simply write the truth as I see it and in this case it is very simple: what modern society calls “sexual diversity” I consider as psycho-sexual pathologies, personality disorders. Second, I object to the instrumentalization of sexual pathologies for political purposes: sex belongs in the bedroom and it should stay there. And third, I consider that the so-called “West” suffers, among other ailments, of an acute case of psychological, moral and spiritual “AIDS”: an acquired deficiency in its ability to distinguish between what is wholesome, healthy, natural and contributing to the growth of the individual and what has the opposite effect. In Russia there is a comprehensive rejection of this “western societal model” which I fully approve of and I have no intention of catering to the micro-agenda of those single-topic folks who would have me join the passive herd of bystanders who dare not call things by their name. This is why I refuse to use the term “gay” which I consider a ridiculous misnomer. Solzhenitsyn used to speak of a “decline in courage” and I personally see everywhere and in everything. If I was also afraid of offending somebody for simply speaking the truth, I would not be able to look at myself in the mirror. People should come here to get my honest opinion, not to get my support for whatever lifestyles they fancy. The more pressure I will get to shut up or accept the modern dogmas of political correctness, the more I will push back and denounce that kind of pressure for what it is: an attempt to silence the opposition.The Eurosceptics: Right-wing racists or anti-system progressives?Let me begin by saying that the only country in Europe whose politics I follow really carefully is France. I do not know what the Eurosceptics are like in other countries. With this caveat in mind, is the French National Front anti-Muslim and racist? The answer is, I believe, yes and no.Yes, there is most definitively an anti-immigrant core in the FN. This group is represented by Marine LePen who, logically, is also rather Right-wing in her politics. But you have to look beyond that and understand the following:First, immigration in Europe is, objectively, a real and very serious problem. Denying that makes no sense at all. Second, this problem has been created the capitalist classes who saw in it a way to not only get cheap labor, but also to break the resistance of the European workers and to deconstruct the social state. In other words, from the point of view of the worker in France or German the immigrants and his capitalist bosses are very much part of the same threat to his lifestyle. Add to this toxic brew the Euro-bureaucrats who took it all one big step further and opened the EU to the huge and poor people of Central Europe. For the German or French worker what used to be a problem of Arabs and Africans has now turned into a problem of Poles and Romanians, especially Gypsies. In fact, a lot of the French Arabs from northern Africa now vote with the FN against immigration because they now see their very hard earned benefits melt away under the influx of Romanian and Moldovan immigrants. Likewise, it used to be that Islam was seen as a threat, now it is Muslims who are on the front lines of the fight against thefts and muggings which take place in London or Paris.So, yes, the first-step of the rejection of the system often goes through an anti-immigrant phase. And some remain stuck there. But the next step is a realization that immigrants and local workers are both equally the victims of the capitalists. This is what Alain Soral’s movement Equality and Reconciliation stands for. This movement is probably 40% Arab or African by now and yet while E&R does not make the political endorsement of any one party, Alain Soral (himself both ex-Communist and ex-National Front) clearly states that the FN is the only non-system party in France. And since E&R is clearly pro-Muslim I think that it is likely that most anti-Muslim voters of the FN could easily turn their position to a pro-Islamic one if they are explained what really happened to Europe and how both local workers and immigrant Muslims have been used and artificially pitied against each other by the plutocrats.Does the French model hold true for the rest of Europe? I don’t know. But I have no doubt that very voter for the FN is at least a potential member of E&R at which point he/she will automatically drop his/her anti-immigrant and anti-Islamic stance. Does that mean that there are no racists or bigots inside the FN? No, of course not. But even if their rejection of the “system” is initially polluted by racist or secularist bigotry, these elements rapidly disappear as soon as they are explained how misguided these views are and that immigrants and Islam are not a risk for Europe, but a fantastic and possibly life-saving opportunity against the real threat: the plutocracy, globalism, turbo-capitalism and imperialism. To those who still would not accept that I have a simple peace of advice: study Soral and see what E&R does day in and day out. They are the “proof” of my thesis: the real enemy of the patriots in Europe is not the immigrant, it is the globalist. In his book 1984 Orwell has Winston saying “if there is hope it lies with the proles”.

Ukraine SITREP May 29th, 16:06 UTC/Zulu: Poroshenko’s weird war

Introduction: the broader background to the Ukrainian crisis Before looking at the latest developments in the Ukraine, I think that it is important to at least mention two major developments involving Russia. First, Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus have signed the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) and they will soon be joined by Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. Second, China has officially called for a new security alliance with Russia and Iran thereby proving that all the naysayers who said that China did not really mean it to form an alliance with Russia were plain wrong. As I mentioned it in a previous SITREP the scope and nature of the recent economic agreements between Russia and China already constituted what I called a crypto-alliance and now we see the first official move by China to drop the ‘crypto’ part of it. Again, this is truly a major tectonic shift in world politics and, arguable, the creation of the most powerful coalition of countries in history. The title of Godfather of this new coalition should really go to the USA and Barak Obama who by his amazingly arrogant and hostile policies towards both China and Russia has greatly contributed to the forging of this alliance.This process is far from over, by the way. Not only are there discussions to expand the BRICS to other countries (like Argentina), the SCO or CSTO could also be expanded to include countries such as Iran or Pakistan. AS for the Eurasian Economic Union, it will eventually morph into a single political entity, a Eurasian alliance which could include China in economic and/or security agreements.Lukashenko, Nazarbaev and Putin sign the EEUThe entire Eurasian landmass is slowly but inexorably becoming integrated into a zone free from AngloZionist control and free of the dollar. The writing is on the wall for the AngloZionist Empire.Latest developments in the UkraineThe Ukrainian offensive has seen yet another dramatic escalation with, for the first time, the use of “Grad” multiple rocket launchers on the city of Slaviansk. At least one Ukrainian helicopter, reportedly carrying a general and 12 other people, has been shot down by the Novorossia Defense Forces (NDF). Sporadic artillery fire, at times intensive, has been heard through the night and casualties continue to be brought into the local hospitals. Several Ukrainian units have put down their weapons and basically surrendered to the NDF. In Sebastopol special headquarters have been set up to deal with the flow of incoming refugees. In Kiev the Parliament is considering declaring martial law which would basically give unlimited power to the junta and suspend most civil rights.There are two ways to look at these events. You could say that a lot happened, there is an escalation taking place, people on both sides die, helicopters got shot down, units are refusing to obey criminal order, etc. But you could also say that from a purely military point of view absolutely nothing happened at all. Think of it this way:What have we seen since the junta began its terror operation in Novorossiia? Slaviansk and Kramatorsk have been besieged and shelled. The junta forces have seized the airports near Slaviansk/Kramatorsk and Donetsk. That’s it.Now let me immediately dispel the notion that these airports are somehow strategically important. They are not. Normally, in most military conflicts, airports are very important objects, especially their runways and radars. But in this case the seizure of the Slaviansk/Kramatorsk and Donetsk airports has not been followed by any use of them by the junta, if only because there is way too much combat still taking place around them to make their use safe. Besides, what need is there for airports when everything can be reached by road anyway? What about denying the use of this airport to either the NDF or the Russians should they decide to intervene? Well, the NDF has no air assets at all, as for the Russians they sure don’t need an airport to land an Airborne Regiment, Brigade or even Division. So why did the junta decide to commit its best forces to seize these airports? Simple – because they are not cities. Or, put differently, because they are located outsides cities. The fact is that the junta simply does not have the forces needed to occupy and control any city, so this is why they go for objectives which are outside cities.Petr Poroshenko has announced that what the junta calls the “anti-terrorist operation” should not last for weeks, but only hours. So this begs the question: if the entire mix of junta forces (military + death-squads) have not succeeded in taking either Slaviansk (hab: 130’000)or Kramatorsk (hab: 165’000), what are their chances to take Donetsk (hab: 1’000’000)? Zero, of course. And even less than zero if that is to be done in a matter of a few days and hours.So what is the point of all this?Is it that the political leaders and the junta are simply stupid or completely miss-informed?No, it’s not that simple. For one thing, to speak of a “junta’s strategy” or “Poroshenko’s strategy” is plain wrong as this accepts they myth that that is an independent government in the Ukraine. There is none. Truly, all the decisions are taken by Uncle Sam and his representatives in Kiev and the so-called authorities are just the USA’s collaborators who simply take orders form their boss. And for all their sins, the folks in DC are neither stupid not poorly informed. So what is their strategy in this frankly weird civil war?Ideally, the first objective of the AngloZionists would be to trigger a Russian military intervention in protection of Novorossiia. That would re-create the kind of Cold War tensions these folks are so nostalgic for. It would give a justification for the existence of NATO and, if played well, it could even result in NATO and Russian forces looking at each other across the Dniepr river. Not only would such a situation be a dream come true for the US military-industrial complex, it would make it possible for the USA to achieve one of its most important strategic objective: to keep Europe colonized and to prevent any chance of its integration with the East. Far from being stupid, this strategy is nothing short of brilliant as it gives Putin only two choices: if Russia does not intervene Putin will look weak, indecisive, or even like a traitor to the Russian people, but if Russia does intervene, then Putin will be called the “New Hitler” or “New Stalin”, a crazed Russian nationalist hell-bent on re-building the Soviet Union and crushing the freedom-loving Europeans under his tanks. Are these cliches? Yes, of course, but they will be used. So for Putin its “damned if you do, and damned if you don’t”.Second option: to wear down the NDF to the point where they will eventually surrender. Not very likely, but in theory possible. Should that happen, this could be presented as a double victory for Poroshenko: he crushed the “terrorists” and he “deterred the Russian Bear”. Again, this is a lot of whishful thinking, but in theory the US might see that as a unlikely but possible outcome.Option three: the old US strategy of “what I cannot have, I burn down”. Basically, the strategy here is to destroy and damage as much of Novorossiia as possible, making a recovery as long and costly as possible. This is also a lesson to all those who dare defy the Empire: you disobey and we will make you pay.Russian options:As I mentioned above, Russia really has very few options to chose from. Any direct Russian intervention in the Ukraine – which in military terms would be a no-brainer – would have huge political consequences for the future of Europe’s stability. In essence, by not intervening Russia is denying the USA the Cold War v2 it wants so badly. Should Russia intervene, and that is very possible, it would mean that the Kremlin accepts that the real price of its intervention is a long term re-submission of all of Europe to US interests.Russia does, of course, have the option of covertly assisting the NDF and there is no doubt in my mind that it is already doing it, but this can only be done in a very careful and remote manner in order to avoid giving the US any proof of covert support. Still, advanced anti-air and anti-tank weapons are clearly shown on some videos which shows that somebody is helping the resistance.Russia has also begun leaking information about the Ukrainian units involved in terror operations against the people of the Donbass. For example, Russian TV has announced yesterday that the following units have been involved in the bombing of the Donetsk airport: the 299 Tactical Aviation Brigade from Nikolaev (Su-25) and the 40th Aviation Brigade from Vasilkovo (MiG-29) who use the Ivan Kozhedub Air Force University of Kharkov (Mi-24; Mi-8) as a combat operations basis. Russian bloggers have also leaked the photos and names of the pilots involved.Russian jurists have created special legal companies who take the testimony of the Ukrainians whose civil or human right have been violated by the junta to file lawsuits in Ukrainian courts. Of course, the Ukrainian courts are fully expected to reject the complaint at which point the Russian can then file their lawsuits at the European Court of Human Rights.The good news for Russia is that there is no way that the Junta can take Donetsk or Lugansk. And even if junta forces did enter these cities they would not be able to control them. The Russian military strategists understand that very well. After all, the Russians have more urban combat experience than any army in the world: during WWII the Soviet forces liberated 1200 cities form the German Army and that experience has been studied over and over again in the Russian military academies. Furthermore, while currently only a minority of the man of combat age in the Donbass have joined the NDF, the constant shelling and terror of the junta’s assault is motivating more and more of them to join the resistance.Time is on the side of Novorossiia and of Russia.My own feeling is that Poroshenko will soon fold and announce some kind of “peace initiative” which would probably not involve a complete withdrawal of junta forces from Novorossiia as demanded by the local authorities, but it will include a “suspension” of combat operations. Poroshenko – who is most definitely not a dumb man – knows that he absolutely must sit down and begin negotiating with the Russian and he also knows that the Russians simply cannot negotiate with him as long as active combat operations continue. I cannot prove that, but I believe that Poroshenko himself already understands all this and that what is happening now is that he is trying to convince the US of the need to accept the facts on the ground. Right now, Poroshenko can hide behind the tiny figleaf excuse that he has not been formally inaugurated, but that pretext will vanish pretty soon (on June 7th) and I suspect that as soon following his inauguration he will announce some kind of peace initiative.Until then, the Russians will have to wait and grind their teeth at the news of every atrocity committed by the junta’s neo-Nazi death-squads. Payback time will come, but the first priority will have to be to deny the AngloZionists the Cold War they are so desperately trying to trigger..The SakerPS: as a small footnote: to those of you who can read Russian and who have an Android device (smartphone or tablet) there is a new and very interesting application called ÐежливÑе ÐÑди available from the Google Play (aka Android Store) called .

May 30th combat SITREP by "Juan"

1. Sporadic and heavy at times fighting around Slavyansk and the outlying villages on 29 May with no notable successes for the Nats Army and national guard units. Some losses reported for the national guard units. 2. A half battery of Grad missile launchers, BM-21, is in position within range of Mariupol. As of this morning that unit has not fired. Range of Grad missile is up to 35 kilometers. 3. A half battery of Grad missile launchers is in position within range of Slavyansk. 4. I have no positive verification of a Grad missile attack on Slavyansk. This does not mean an attack did not occur. Something very large and multiple did hit the outskirts of an outlying village but I have no source at the impact spots to verify what the impacts were.5. Sources report that the Donbas Army action at Donetsk Airport was a trap involving proposed negotiations with certain Ukraine Army units under the auspices of a western organization in Donetsk at that time. Sources report that shortly after the negotiations started the Ukraine Army sent in by air strong reinforcements to their unit in airport as the Ukraine Army units in airport attacked the Donbas Army unit. 6. The transport of the Donbas Army wounded in convoy out of the airport area late Monday evening was arranged as a truce to succor the wounded. The two Kamaz transport trucks were each flying a red cross flag and a white flag of truce. They drove in to an ambush set up by right sector/national guard units. The drivers of both trucks were killed. One truck overturned after striking a curb. The other truck was hit by an RPG round. The surviving wounded were killed by right sector on the spot. As the wounded were being killed the two flags were removed from each truck by right sector operatives. 7. Partisan activity has started 3 days ago in Kharkov Oblast around Kharkov City among other areas targeting national guard/right sector units. 29 May losses to two national guard/right sector units were heavy in ambushes.8. Vostok Battalion 29 May started an operation around Donetsk Administration Building of the Donbas Republic to stop looting by certain Donbas Army members after strong complaints from citizens. Metro supermarket near the airport was heavily looted by Donbas Army members as were several other shops and stores and much of the loot was stored in 3 tents in the area of Donbas Administration Building, one tent having the contents and perpetrators shown on video. Reports are 7 looters were arrested and are awaiting trial. Reports from Ukraine and west media that the looters were shot are false. 9. After the anti looting operation was completed Vostok Battalion had the square in front of Donbas Administration Building cleared of the barricades to provide access for citizens to the facility and to facilitate easier defense of the area in the event of a Ukraine attack. 10. Civilian casualties in Donbas are mounting with the random artillery attacks by units of the Ukraine Army and national guard/right sector. 29 May saw 8 civilians killed in Donbas and a like number of wounded. Some of these casualties were caused by air burst antipersonnel rounds fired from howitzers of the Ukraine Army. Targets are living areas with flats buildings with no visible Donbas Army units in the areas. 12. Families of mobilized Ukraine Army reservists held a large demonstration in Kiev at the Ukraine Parliament Building demanding the return of their husbands and sons. By Ukraine law reservists can not be mobilized for more than 45 days without a declaration of war against another sovereign state by Ukraine. This declaration of war has not been made. Kiev has ordered the mobilization extended indefinitely. 13. One of the two Ukrainian helicopters shot down on 29 May was carrying the commanding general of the ‘national guard’ who was also ‘the commander of field operations for national guard units’. 14. Ukraine has rejected the offer of humanitarian aid from Russian Federation for the two Oblasti of Donetsk and Lugansk. 15. An attempt on 29 May to evacuate children from certain areas of Slavyansk was unsuccessful. Ukraine Army units blockading the city refused passage to the buses carrying the children. 16. A refugee processing center has been set up in the Federal City of Sevastopol of the Russian Federation to aid in the settlement of refugees arriving from areas of fighting in Ukraine. Several hundred refugees have arrived in Sevastopol as of 17:00 29 May and are being housed and fed in the city. A like number are being succored in Simferopol, the capitol of the Autonomous Republic of Krimea of the Russian Federation. A processing center is schedule to be set up 30 May in Simferopol to help the refugees. More refugees are expected in both cities. A like facility for refugees will be set up in the eastern Krimea city of Kerch if needed.

Speech of Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah commemorating the Day of Resistance and Liberation held in the Southern village of Bint Jbeil on May 25th, 2014

Foreword by the Saker: those of you who are new to this blog might not know it, but in the past I have always posted the translated speeches of the Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah for two reasons: first, I have an infinite respect and admiration for the man himself and for his movement, but also because I believe that being exposed to his views is absolutely mandatory for anybody who wants to understand the Middle-East. I would also note that unlike almost every political leader in the Middle-East or even the world, Hassan Nasrallah is known for speaking the truth, for not lying, not posturing. Even in Israel they know that if he says something you can take it to the bank. At most, Nasrallah might not address a topic, but he never lies, at least to my knowledge.But today, in the context of the war in the Donbass/Novorossiia I find his speech exceptionally valuable because Hezbollah is without any doubt the most sophisticated resistance movement on the planet, light-years ahead of whomever we could think of as #2. The village where he made the speech I am posting below is literally right across the Israeli border and yet in 33 days of absolutely massive attacks involving the absolutely best units and even formations the Israelis had, they could not take Bint Jbeil. Ever since this village has been nicknamed “Nasrallahgrad”.The new, “junior”, resistance in Kramatorsk, Slaviansk, Krasnyi Liman, Odessa, Donetsk, Lugansk and the rest of Novorosiia needs to learn for the most experienced and capable resistance movement on the planet: Slaviansk or Kramatorsk can and must be turned into BinJbeil.My hope is that all of us who support the resistance to the AngloZionist Empire worldwide learn from Hezbollah, from its exemplary tolerance and respect for other religions and ethnic groups, to its unique respect for human rights (merciful policy towards the SLA) to its outstanding combat capabilities. At a time when both Zionism and Wahabism are working hand in hand to take over the entire Middle-East, Hezbollah not only protects the people of Lebanon, it even plays a crucial role in the war against Syria. Truly Hezbollah has a lot for offer to those willing to learn it. The Saker
