The decision to supply Ukraine with longer-range missile systems that will allow it to strike troops and weapons stockpiles at the Russian forces’ rear, and even into Russia itself, is not only foolish. It’s downright criminal. Because it will prolong a war that Ukraine is well on the way to losing, leaving many more to die in a conflict that could end tomorrow if only Kiev agreed to terms.
However with Western encouragement, Zelensky’s regime has adamantly refused to negotiate any sort of ceasefire. If the U.S. hadn’t pledged to supply longer-range missiles Zelensky might not be so defiant because on the military front Ukraine is in dire straits.
In a recent report a former U.S. military official speaks of Ukrainian conscripts being given 10 days basic training before being sent to the frontline!!
Once there they are reportedly sustaining 65% percent casualty rates!! In other words two out of every three Ukrainian conscripts are being killed or wounded.

This is obviously unsustainable. Large numbers of young conscripts are fighting and dying needlessly because warmongers and oligarch’s in Washington, London and Kiev want to weaken Russia.
Because that’s what this is really all about. The West is using Ukraine as a means to undermine Russia. Or as one wag recently put it, the West is ready to fight Russia till the last Ukrainian.
This is being done with a view to fragmenting Russia into a group of lesser states that can be more easily controlled. For the past eight years the West has been arming and training Ukrainian forces with this in mind.
Putin understood this and that’s why he decided to act. Russia’s survival as a sovereign nation was under threat, just as Hitler and Napoleon menaced Russia before so the West was slowly and incrementally doing the same now.
Moreover, implicit in Putin’s warning to strike harder is a veiled threat to the West. The Western public needs to ignore the corporate media talking heads and take heed. Because implied in Putin’s announcement that Russia will strike new targets is a veiled warning that those strikes may not be confined to Ukraine.
Together with Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council Dmitry Medvedev’s recent warning that Russia will strike decision making centres that are “not even on the territory of Kiev”, Russia is clearly signalling that the West itself could soon be targeted if it continues to arm Zelensky.
You don’t have to be psychic to see where this is heading. I’m not but I’m going to make a prediction and I’ll even specify a date. If the Biden administration insists on supplying Ukraine with longer-range missiles and if the West doesn’t relent then Russia will respond.
In or around the first week in August Russia will strike targets BEYOND UKRAINE. I don’t know precisely where but rail yards, weapons storage facilities, transport hubs and the like in countries neighbouring Ukraine could be targeted. So Poland and Slovakia could be hit, although Russia may spare Hungary, as it has not helped supply Ukraine with arms.
Countries not adjacent to Ukraine but involved in supplying arms to it could also be targeted. This might include Germany, Holland, the UK and NATO newcomers like Sweden and because of NATO’s mutual defence accord this could amount to a full scale Russian attack on NATO.
In short we are talking about the biggest military conflict since WWII, and given the destructive power of modern weapons it could be even more devastating.
As far as the global elite are converned, the biggest problem facing the world today is over-population. There are simply too many “useless eaters”. They tried to rectify things with Covid-19 and “vaccines” but it was taking too long, too many people were asking questions and a growing number were starting to wake-up.
So now Plan B is being rolled out. It’s violent, messy and a few cultural landmarks will be obliterated but it will do the job and eliminate large segments of the population. Or so the elite hope but whether it will work out as they plan is another matter.
I am no more clairvoyant than anyone else but I’m confident that we shall see something like this unfold before the end of summer. I hope that I’m wrong but we will know soon enough.
Putin warns West: Russia will strike harder if longer-range missiles supplied
Reuters – June 5, 2022
President Vladimir Putin warned the West that Russia would strike new targets if the United States started supplying Ukraine with longer-range missiles, the TASS news agency reported on Sunday.
If such missiles are supplied, “we will strike at those targets which we have not yet been hitting,” Putin was quoted as saying in an excerpt of an interview with Rossiya-1 state television channel.
Putin did not name the targets Russia planned to pursue if Western countries began supplying Ukraine with longer-range missiles. He said the “fuss” around Western weapon supplies to Ukraine was designed to drag out the conflict.
Ukraine has been seeking Multiple Rocket Launch Systems (MLRS) such as the M270 and M142 HIMARS to strike troops and weapons stockpiles at the Russian forces’ rear.
U.S. President Joe Biden announced plans this week to give Ukraine precision HIMARS rocket systems after receiving assurances from Kyiv that it would not use them to hit targets inside Russia. read more
Although Russian officials have warned that the U.S. decision to supply Ukraine with advanced rocket systems could exacerbate the conflict, Putin said it would not bring on any fundamental changes on the battlefield.
“We understand that this supply (of advance rocket systems) from the United States and some other countries is meant to make up for the losses of this military equipment,” Putin said.
“This is nothing new. It doesn’t change anything in essence.”
In an excerpt of the same interview aired on Saturday, Putin boasted that Russian anti-aircraft forces have shot down dozens of Ukrainian weapons and are “cracking them like nuts.” read more
