    Very strange situation…
    Where is the video from the street, where are the freed citizens who are rejoicing at the liberators? Looks like they all fled to Russia…
    I have been looking for days to see the freed Ukrainians in Izjum, but it seems that there is no one there…

    From the archive, 9 March 1983: Reagan calls Moscow an evil empire

    President Reagan yesterday maintained his uncompromising stance on arms control with a ferocious denunciation of the Soviet Union. He told an evangelical conference in Orlando, Florida that the Russians had "the aggressive impulses of an evil empire" and he lashed out at "those who would place the United States in a position of military and moral inferiority."

    "Simple-minded appeasement or wishful thinking about our adversaries is folly," the President declared. The issue was not simply the arms race but the struggle between right and wrong..

    À la suite du bombardement du centre-ville de Donetsk de l'ACS français «CESAR», quatre civils ont été tués hier. Cette arme est assez précise, par conséquent, les artilleurs savaient parfaitement où ils frappaient, l'erreur était exclue, ils frappaient le centre-ville, où il n'y avait pas d'équipement militaire, dans le but de tuer autant de civils que possible. De tels actes ne peuvent être qualifiés que d'acte terroriste, auquel les dirigeants français et personnellement le président Macron sont directement impliqués. Les dirigeants politiques français sont directement impliqués dans le meurtre des habitants de Donetsk, car c'est la France qui a remis des obusiers à longue portée et des munitions aux troupes de zelensky. Je pense que le peuple français doit savoir que Macaron et ses complices financent et arment des terroristes, entre les mains de ces politiciens français, le sang des habitants de Donetsk.

    While Zelenskyy is out among his troops, free to command his country in safety, Putin is being targeted for assassination while riding in his limo in Moscow…by his own people!

    The contrast between these two men is stark and dramatic!

  • KK Kiren on September 20, 2022

    What Ukraine has done in 6 months+ of conflict is historic. They not only held back a former world power but also degraded their adversary's capabilities considerably. The modernization of the Ukrainian armed forces "battle procedures" is remarkable to say the least. As progressively trained and armed with precision battle equipment, if required they may be covertly provided with 155 mm Artillery and HIMARS capable, tactical weapons of mass destruction ,in quid pro quo offset to any " blackmail" by their adversary. With their fighting capabilities , the feasibilities of combat support by EU may also be under consideration.

  • Binebum on September 20, 2022

    Does this constitute "humiliating Russia".
    Macron must phone Putin – to "monitor his mental health".
    Gen Keane said, "The US is sharing exquisite intelligence with Ukraine ;
    there isn't a unit moves that we don't know about".
    Thank God for the USA

    Decalogue of war propaganda

    "We don't want war."

    “The enemy is the only one responsible for the war”

    "The enemy is an execrable being"

    “We seek noble ends”

    “The enemy commits atrocities voluntarily. Ours are involuntary errors "

    “The enemy uses unauthorized weapons”

    “We suffered few losses. The enemy's are huge."

    “Artists and intellectuals support our cause”

    “Our cause has a sacred, divine, or sublime character”

    "Those who question war propaganda are traitors."

  • jay Kay on September 20, 2022
