Make no mistake, I get it–it hurts being a sore loser, but we may state with absolute certainty now that most what US “senior military officials” know about real war is derived from blowing the shit from unarmed civilians. They lack serious skills in strategic and operational planning and I expressed myself on this issue not for once, especially when commenting on the modern day academic standards or, rather, lack thereof in the USMA in West Point. But here we go again.
Of course, this official is “anonymous” because who would like to parade oneself as a military amateur and ignoramus. Wasn’t Russian Army supposed to run out of ammo and cruise missiles like what… in March or April? One has to ask a question–these “anonymous officials”, have they ever commanded anything larger than the squad or have they ever won anything in their life in real war? We can confidently say no, because Pentagon’s “record” is abysmal, with the US losing its wars left and right against grossly inferior technologically but determined enemies. Now, to conceive that somebody, who “studied” military economy from the “text-books” penned by financiers and stock brokers from Wall Street, who still think that the US is the “largest economy in the world”, will understand what Russian military industry is, is down right risible. They have no intellectual apparatus to grasp it–they haven’t been taught it. I omit here my many years long contention that the understanding of Russia in the West is that of a kindergarten petulant child, but this is the issue of the Western humanities “education”.
Of course, the other possibility should not be discounted too–US “journos” simply made this shit up–their MO, basically–and “reported” it in accordance to ideological imperatives of the moment, those imperatives being an extremely acute necessity to cover up the collapsing front of VSU (NATO really) around Bakhmut and those severe strategic ramification which this collapse entails for not just Zelensky regime, but for its handlers. And we know his handlers are in London and Washington. Not to be outdone, of course, is London’s The Economist–a collection of pompous imbeciles, “consulted” by MI-6 and “byproducts” of Sandhurst–who continue to spread utter pseudo-military BS and propaganda and quote today… Zaluzhny.
Yeah, sure. He forgot to mention, of course, that VSU had more, much more, than that in February, but then encountered Russian force three times smaller and all those numbers simply evaporated. Or, as Russians say, if the grandmother had the balls, she would have been the grandfather. But Western BS peddlers with zero knowledge of operations (I doubt they teach that in Britain anymore) and operational planning as related to real war have only that tool left for them–BS. But The Economist’s drivel is symptomatic of the UK’s state in general, that one is of a complete economic, moral, intellectual and military degradation. At least, Ron Jeremy for all his hilarious appearances had a large cock, UK has only the former left and is reduced to nothing more than Tabaqui.
And so we go, the vicious circle of BS and PR actions, lies, expose’ of stupefying incompetence across the board continues. Meanwhile Russian industry–you know, the real economy–continues to churn out military materiel and equipment in, ahem, industrial quantities and preparing for yet another “defeat”, like retaking all of Donbass and then… Who knows what then.
And dedollarization continues to accelerate. As someone noted today in Russian segment about Putin’s meeting with Council on Strategic Development–the West is completely absent from a discussion. But then again, do you care about doormats? Only when the time comes to throw the old one out and get a new one to the threshold of one’s home.
