Wars, Shortages, Pestilences, and Earthquakes......
You shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in various places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows. [Matthew 24]
Be prepared to Bury the Two-State Solution, Palestinian FM warns.......
21 January 2022
Riad Malki tells UNSC it was a mistake to wait to take action.
Prepare to eulogise the two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riad Malki [pictured above] warned on Wednesday, as he called on the international community to force Israel to withdraw to the pre-1967 lines.
“There is urgency because this conflict has a solution that may still be available today and that will no longer be viable tomorrow,” Malki told the UN Security Council during its monthly meeting on the conflict.
“The two-State solution... does not need you by its bedside to share comforting words. It needs you to save it. Absent this sense of urgency, prepare yourself to attend the funeral of this solution with all the consequences of such a death for the lives of millions of people, Palestinians and others.”
Malki spoke in the midst of a prolonged absence of any peace process to resolve the conflict.
Malki told the UNSC that it was a mistake to wait to take any action, as if time would allow for the issue to resolve itself.
“Can anyone seriously argue that we should wait for Israel to be ready to end its occupation on its own, to wake up one day wiser and decide to redeem itself?” he asked. “Is there anyone around this table who believes this is a rational or winning strategy?”
World War III likely began at the Biden Press Conference?
21 January 2022
Since revealing a major Russian military build-up on the borders of Ukraine, the Biden administration has launched a flurry of diplomatic initiatives, culminating in this week’s visit of the secretary of state, Antony Blinken, to Ukraine and Germany. On Saturday Australian time, Blinken will meet with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, for highly anticipated talks.
Team Biden’s carefully orchestrated diplomacy gives the impression of a seasoned team at the controls.
But just beyond the multilateral veneer lurks a fatal flaw in its approach: the belief, fashionable in progressive circles, that military deterrence is outdated."
We saw the beginnings of this fatal flaw in President Obama's administration, as he did lose control of the Crimea to Russia on his watch.
Now, an obviously impaired President Biden seems poised to turn this flaw in philosophy into the loss of an important ally, The Ukraine.
"Bumbling Joe" has already started his capitulation to Vladimir Putin!
President Joe Biden’s first reaction to the military crisis over Ukraine was to publicly take US ground troops off the table — inexplicably communicating to Russian President Vladimir Putin "the limits of our support."
Without any fanfare, President Biden has already communicated his weakness to one of the most powerful and cunning military leaders on the planet!
And, then Biden shuffled to the podium last night to begin leaking his strategy failure to the entire world.
"Now, a 'minor incursion', as Biden mused at Wednesday’s press conference, could lead the West to 'fight about what to do and not to do' in levying economic sanctions.
This does NOT strike fear in the heart of the Kremlin!
The Ukrainians were shocked to the core when they heard what he said ...
One Ukrainian official…said that he was ‘shocked that President Biden would give a green light to Vladimir Putin in this way.’”
It gives the green light to Putin to enter Ukraine at his pleasure.
Ukrainian leaders, whose lives, family and assets are actually on the line against the Russian Bear, were beside themselves with anger and frustration. .
Zelensky Attacks Biden......
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky [pictured above] slammed President Biden on Thursday after he indicated that the US response to a Russian invasion of Ukraine would be less severe if it was a “minor incursion.”
“ 'We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations,” Zelensky tweeted. 'Just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones."
While Joe Biden can probably escape the harsh reality of his failed leadership, these men are the ones standing in front of the Russian, tanks, troops, and missiles!
These men are the ones whose bodies may be dumped in mass graves as the Russian hordes pass over.
And, to them, Biden's comments are deadly dangerous and could very well encourage Russia to attack so quickly and forcefully that The Ukraine could be conquered before the feeble West can meet in their fancy legislative houses to debate how "major" or how 'minor" the incursion truly is.
Coincidentally, China is following an identical strategy.
Since they calculate that American leadership will hesitate ordering forces into action instantly, they probably have at least a week to conquer Taiwan.
They can count on Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Mitt Romney and AOC and Ilhan Omar to slow the process of debating how to commit American forces -- or not -- sufficiently to allow China to victoriously conquer Taiwan.
Xi will surely await the closing of his Winter Olympics before making any such move?
White House Scrambles to Cover the Gaffe......
Immediately following Biden's remarks, the White House Press Secretary tried in vain to "clarify" his remarks.
"Joe Biden made some troubling comments during his press conference that caused a lot of consternation, both here and across the globe, when he spoke about Russia’s threats against Ukraine. Biden said that if Russia’s Vladimir Putin made any false moves against Ukraine, he would impose sanctions. But there was a big caveat in the threat."
Joe Biden has spent the last year weakening America in as many ways as he could, so he cannot think that his America of today can stand in a theatre of battle and carry the day against the Russian monster.
Russian Tanks at the Ready?
21 January 2022
MOSCOW — Russia is sending troops from the country’s far east to Belarus for major war games, officials said Tuesday, a deployment that will further beef up Russian military assets near Ukraine amid Western fears of a planned invasion.
The "Allied Resolve" manoeuvres will take place near Belarus' western border with NATO members Poland and Lithuania and its southern border with Ukraine. Russia already has tens of thousands of troops to the north, east and south of Ukraine.
The deployment of Russian forces in Belarus creates a new potential front line for Ukrainian army planners to worry about ... Reinforcing that area will mean spreading troops thinner elsewhere and diverting forces from positions facing southwest Russia, the Russian-backed Donbass region in eastern Ukraine that Kyiv lost control of in 2014 and the Crimean peninsula that Russia seized from Ukraine that year.
They don't have enough manpower so they'll have to make many difficult choices.
China continues her diplomatic offensive against Taiwan.......
21 January 2022
Reinforcing the possibility that the coming World War III will feature China allied with Russia, fighting on opposite sides of the globe!
Toward this end, Russian President Putin will be meeting with Chinese President Xi on February 4.the beginning of the Beijing Winter Olympics.
Biden has been the main cause pushing them even closer together!
Besides commiserating with Putin over an issue that could bring China and Russia ever more closely into alignment against Western powers, China could be watching the Ukraine saga closely for hints of how America and its allies would respond to an invasion of Taiwan.
China may also be watching the Ukraine situation to measure the decline of Western influence in general, or the Biden administration’s weakness in particular.
World's most Powerful Weapons Converge in the South China Sea....
21 February 2022
One of the most powerful weapons in the US Navy’s arsenal made a rare port call in Guam over last weekend, sending a message to allies and foes amid increasing tensions in the Indo-Pacific ...
The USS Nevada, an Ohio-class nuclear-powered submarine carrying 20 Trident ballistic missiles and dozens of nuclear warheads, pulled into the Navy base in the US Pacific Island territory on Saturday.
It’s the first visit of a ballistic missile submarine — sometimes called a “boomer” — to Guam since 2016.
'The port visit strengthens cooperation between the United States and allies in the region, demonstrating US capability, flexibility, readiness, and continuing commitment to Indo-Pacific regional security and stability', a US Navy statement said."
But, then the USA moved even more assets into the region!
The Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group and the Essex Amphibious Ready Group, which includes the embarked 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit, completed joint expeditionary strike force training operations in the South China Sea last Sunday.
The Vinson’s deployment is the first to embark the F-35C Lightning II fighter jet and the CMV-22 Osprey, assigned to Carrier Air Wing 2.
The operations in the South China Sea mark the first time an amphibious group had operated with an 'advanced Air Wing of the Future', according to the service."
If, and when a faltering Biden is confronted by the combined Russia/China attacks, his defeat will not come from a lack of military capability, but from his lack of will.
Biden will hesitate and refuse to "pull the trigger" to order his forces pre-positioned in the region.
Through monumental bribes and stealthy blackmail of Hunter Biden, plus the insidious infiltration of the Republican Party by New Age doctrine which erodes support for Nation States, the hapless pollies hold to the erroneous belief that this very system is destructive and must be replaced by a Global Dictatorship.
