    Talking About World War 3

    ​ The Kremlin record says: “The presidents discussed in detail the situation in the Middle East, escalated by Israel’s air strike at the Iranian diplomatic mission in Damascus and Iran’s retaliation measures. Vladimir Putin expressed hope that all sides will exercise sensible restraint and will not allow a new round of confrontation that may be fraught with disastrous consequences for the entire region.”
    ​ “In turn, Ebrahim Raisi noted that Iran’s actions had been forced and limited. At the same time, he emphasised that Tehran is not interested in further escalation of tensions. Both leaders stated that the unresolved Palestinian-Israeli conflict was the root cause of the current developments in the Middle East.”
    ​ Then the two presidents agreed it was back to their strategic business. “During the exchange of views on the current issues of Russia-Iran relations, both leaders expressed their mutual intention to promote steady bilateral cooperation across different areas, including the implementation of mutually beneficial infrastructure projects.” ​…
    ..According to Raisi’s report, “ ‘What the Islamic Republic of Iran did in response to what happened criminally and in the light of the inaction of the [UN] Security Council, was the best way to punish the aggressor and represented the tactfulness and rationality of Iran’s politicians,’ Putin said. The Russian president said the Israeli regime’s ‘terrorist act’ against the Iranian consulate in Damascus was against all international standards and rules. He also strongly criticized the United States and certain Western countries for creating tension in the region. ‘We believe that the Islamic Republic of Iran is one of the main pillars of stability and security in the region.’”
    ​ In the PressTV report, Raisi added in his remarks to Putin: “ ‘The destructive role of the US and some western countries and the inaction and inefficiency of international institutions, including the United Nations and the Security Council, in dealing with the aggressive action of the Zionist regime in attacking the Iranian consulate in Syria caused the Islamic Republic of Iran to exercise its right to self-defense.’ ​ Raisi further thanked Moscow for its ‘principled and constructive’ stance against the Israeli aggression in Damascus.”​

    ​ “Within Seconds” strikes me as air-defense response, whatever might follow that. There are reports that Russia and China are helping Iran with targeting and early warnings.
    Iran vows to react ‘within seconds’ to each new mistake made by Israel
    ​ Ali Bagheri Kani, the deputy foreign minister for political affairs, stated as much.
    He stated, “They should anticipate a harsher, quicker, and more immediate response in the event that they repeat the same mistake.”
    ​ “This time, the Zionists should know this that they will not have a 12-day-long timespace,” the official noted, adding, “The response that they are going to receive [this time around] cannot be measured by [such time standards as] days or hours, but [will come in a matter of] seconds.”​

    ​ These statements are not being translated for ultimate clarity of meaning. Perhaps that is intentional. The larger, newer hypersonic ballistic missiles in Iran’s arsenal have never been used in war, and could be used as part of a much larger and more destructive response against Israel, if Israel strikes Iranian territory again, which the IRanian embassy in Damascus was. Iranian missile specifics are looked at here.
    ​ On Monday, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian warned that if Israel continues to escalate tensions with Tehran, it will face a swift and intensified response.​ Amir-Abdollahian, quoted by the Iranian Foreign Ministry during a telephone conversation with German Foreign Minister Annalena Bärbock, said that if the Israeli regime continues its adventures and aggravates the situation, the response will follow immediately and will be even larger.​

    ​ Press sources said that an airstrike by a Zionist reconnaissance aircraft targeted a gathering of Palestinian civilians, mostly children, in Al-Qasatina lane at the Mohandes Roundabout area in the center of the camp, and in a place containing children’s toys installed during the Eid days.
    ​ According to sources, the raid killed 11 martyrs, including at least five children, while a number of other children and young people were injured, some of whom were transferred to the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Hospital in Deir al-Balah.​

    UN Rights Office Says Israel Still Imposing ‘Unlawful’ Restrictions on Gaza Aid
    ​ The UN’s Human Rights Office said on Tuesday that Israel is still imposing “unlawful” restrictions on aid entering Gaza despite US and Israeli claims that there’s been an increase in deliveries, Reuters reported on Tuesday.
    ​ After Israel slaughtered seven workers for the World Central Kitchen on April 1, Benjamin Netanyahu’s government made a commitment to allow more aid into the Strip, but the UN says aid levels are still way below the bare minimum of what’s needed.
    ​ “Israel continues to impose unlawful restrictions on the entry and distribution of humanitarian assistance and to carry out widespread destruction of civilian infrastructure,” said Ravina Shamdasani, spokeswoman for the UN Human Rights Office.
    ​ Shamdasani added that “those delivering or trying to access humanitarian assistance must never be attacked.” Last week, UNICEF workers reported that a vehicle they were traveling in was hit by Israeli gunfire, but nobody was hurt.

    ​ John Helmer looks at Israeli vulnerability to Iranian attacks upon its electrical system, the type of war Russia is now prosecuting in Ukraine.
    ​ If Israel escalates by attacking Iran and striking at the country’s infrastructure, then Iran’s counter will be to take a page out of Russia’s book and commence the one line of attack which Israel, the US and their allies cannot withstand any better than Ukraine – that’s Electric War.
    ​ For the seven months which have elapsed since Hamas began its operation against Israel on October 7, and Israel commenced its genocide against the Palestinians, there has been no targeting by Hamas, Hezbollah, the Houthis, or the Syrian and Iraqi groups of Israel’s highly vulnerable maritime gas platforms, gas pipelines, coal and oil-fired electricity generating plants, the coal and oil storages nearby, solar and wind power units, or the electricity grids keeping the country alight.
    ​ The Arab inhibitions and calculations are understandable. Iran’s will disappear if Israel triggers a new round of attacks.
    ​ If and when that happens, the Palestinian failure in the US and in Europe to counterattack and stop Israel financing its war through the $60 billion genocide bond issue won’t matter. Bond holders don’t invest in blackouts.​..
    ..A NATO veteran and expert in applying electrical engineering to war comments: “Honestly, I don’t believe the Iranian strikes were all that effective in terms of damage done. This being said, again, they weren’t meant to be. They mostly used drones and older missiles with a few of the newer models thrown in to test, and send a message.”​ … “If the Iranians turn to electric war strikes, things will look a lot different.”
    ​ He is repeating what the Israelis began admitting publicly last week. “A war scenario with Hezbollah presented last week by the head of the Ministry of Defense’s National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA), Brigadier General Yoram Laredo, sparked widespread concern about the level of preparedness for such an event within the energy sector…
    ​..In the latest NEMA report, according to industry press summaries, “it is evident that the lessons of Ukraine have not been absorbed by Israel, with security sources citing the lack of preparedness of the Israel Electric Corporation. In addition to Russia, Iranian weapons are used by their proxy organizations including Hezbollah. Israel’s power grids are similar to those of Ukraine, Iran, and Lebanon, so its weak points have been marked by the enemy.”
    ​ “According to NEMA, in a full-scale war with Hezbollah, about 5,000 rockets, precision missiles, and suicide drones will be launched at Israel every day, targeting critical electricity infrastructure as well. The damage to this infrastructure would lead to two nationwide power outages lasting from 24 to 48 hours, for at least 60% of the country, in addition to 11 regional power outages and numerous local power outages. There would also be power outages lasting weeks and even months in some parts of the country, mainly in the north.”​…
    ​..This paper from an Israeli military think tank explains the vulnerability of these power generating plants and the transmission systems they supply. “The security of the electrical system during emergencies and a reduction in the risk of an excessive and protracted blackout are critical issues that demand national attention and response,” the Israelis claimed in June 2017. “We maintain that the current systemic responses to threats against the electrical system are inadequate in light of the unique geostrategic characteristics of the State of Israel.”​…
    ​..“To protect the functional continuity of the state and the capability of the IDF to maintain an ongoing offensive effort until victory has been achieved implies the protection of power stations and IAF bases before the protection of the large cities. It is possible that in the future we will be able to protect both, but currently, with the number of batteries and interceptor missiles at our disposal, we have to designate an order of priorities for the deployment of our assets. We have to make a difficult, painful, and clear-cut decision.”
    ​ That was seven years ago – the Israelis were taking no account of the development by the Iranians of drone decoys and hypersonic missiles, and of the impossibility of defending against their combination.​

    ​ Aleks at Black Mountain Analysis (Serbian) Prospects for World War 3 [i]​ Part Two
    ​ A little more than a year ago, I wrote a strategic analysis of the direction of the war in Ukraine… It was dedicated to Andrei Raevsky (The Saker), whom I value tremendously. I think we all miss him. It is the article “Prospects for World War 3”.​..
    ..There are various other scenarios for World War Three without the need for a clash between the superpowers.​ Considering the prospects for a World War between the superpowers, I concluded in my previous article that there is a probability of about 10% for this to happen…
    ..There is no such thing as: “Ukraine did this” or “Ukraine said that.” Ukraine is a brotherly Slavic and Orthodox nation, and it would never do anything against Russia. Ukraine is a part of Russia. So, to keep up one of the biggest brainwashing operations (psychical level) and mobilization operations (physical level) to comprehensively divide Russians and Ukrainians and to exterminate the Ukrainian able-bodied male population to deny them as resources for Russia. Moreover, to force Russia to make colossal investments to rebuild the new Ukrainian oblast(s) and solve the social and demographic problems in the new oblast(s).
    ​ In other words, all important leaders in Ukraine need to be paid off. Moreover, safe places for their escape when the well-known (to everyone) collapse eventually comes need to be provided for everyone abroad. These are the billions that keep the Ukrainian leadership slaughtering their own male population until the very end as long as it is physically possible. And it is still physically possible…​ We are talking about outright murder of a people.​..
    ..What has been going on since then is not a military operation. It is plugging holes in the frontlines with human meat to physically block the Russians from advancing deeper. People are being sent by truckloads into the trenches where essentially the fighting is over, except for a few hotspots where the Russians are advancing. What is left is sending these people into trenches where they are being slaughtered by all kinds of highly efficient weapons without ever seeing a single Russian soldier before their death…
    ..The fact is that Ukraine will fall due to a total collapse from Donetsk up to Lvov. The whole artificial structure will be gone. I wanted to firmly reiterate that this prediction is, as always, more than up to date, and it is already being discussed in the Western media.
    ​ I’m not saying that Ukraine as a whole will become part of Russia. I’m still convinced that the Western part of Ukraine will be divided between the three neighbors, with Russia’s consent…
    ..We learned that the Americans are no longer committed to the Ukrainian battlefield, at least not beyond the involvement of their money, special services, and commanders. Still, there is manpower missing.
    ​ Moreover, the Americans can’t intervene anywhere in the world any longer. Wherever they would become bogged down in a bigger war, all other regions would instantly exploit that and start freeing themselves from the American occupation. It is crucial for the Americans to cut off such a heavy anchor as the Ukrainian project. A symbol for this was the cutting off the… “heavy” anchor Victoria Nuland.​..
    ..Therefore, there are attempts to make the Europeans switch to war economies. The big European countries are discussing this openly, and so is the EU. It would free the American capacities for American rearmament to be able to focus on Asia, and at the same time, it would keep Russia in war longer… I think Russia will prevent all of this from happening. It would be diametrically against her interests.​..
    ​..What worries me the most, since I’m affected, is that I think that war is very much possible within Europe within the next few years. And I’m not talking about Europe versus Russia. No, I’m talking about the major European powers against one another. Ukraine will fall soon, and with it, the Western world order. Eastern European countries will get the opportunity to connect to the BRICS market and financial system (and default on the Dollar system, if needed). They will have a choice, as the free market economy foresees it. And they will choose. This will cause major friction between the European powers and the EU institution.
    ​ France, Britain, and Poland are major lynchpins in this whole struggle. I pray for peace, but there may be major escalations between the European countries. These escalations can be:
    ​ Military nature (25% probability)
    ​ Diplomatic and Economic nature (75%)
    As you can see, I’m still optimistic that there won’t be a kinetic war in Europe, but it is far from being excluded.​

    ​This looks like a threat to defect to Russia if not paid: Zelensky Angry That Israel Prioritized By West, Says Ukraine Running Out Of Missiles To Defend Airspace

    John Day

    Scott Ritter maintains that the Iranian hypersonic missiles used last Saturday were all unstoppable, all hit their targets, and that this implies that the best US Radar systems, which were in place and employed, cannot facilitate interception of Iranian missiles, nor by implication, similar Russian and Chinese hypersonic missiles. (North Korea?)
    “Checkmate” says Ritter, but I think it is more like an effective blocking strategy. US/NATO can still move backwards.
    ​ The global strategic implications of this stunning Iranian accomplishment are game-changing—the US has long struggled conceptually with the notion of what is referred to as “A2/AD” (anti-access/area denial) threats posed by hostile ballistic missiles. However, the US had sought to mitigate against this AA/A2 threat by overlaying theater ballistic missile defense architecture like that that had been employed in Israel. The failure of the combined US-Israeli defense systems in the face of a concerted Iranian missile attack exposed the short-comings of the US ballistic missile defense capabilities world-wide.
    ​ In short, this means that the US and NATO forces in Europe are vulnerable to attack from advanced Russian missile technologies which match or exceed those used by Iran to attack Israel. It also means that China would most likely be able to strike and sink US navy ships in the Pacific Ocean in the event of a conflict over Taiwan. And that North Korea could do the same to US ships and forces ashore in the vicinity of Japan and South Korea.
    ​ Until which time the US can develop, produce and deploy missile defense systems capable of defeating the new missile technology being deployed by nations like Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea, US military power projection capabilities are in a state of checkmate by America’s potential adversaries.​

    ​ Supercharged Spying Provision Buried In “Terrifying” FISA 702 Reauthorization
    ​ On Monday, the House finalized procedural business on a bill to reauthorize the nation’s warrantless surveillance powers under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) called “one of the most dramatic and terrifying expansions of government surveillance authority in history.”
    “Buried in the Section 702 reauthorization bill (RISAA) passed by the House on Friday is the biggest expansion of domestic surveillance since the Patriot Act.​” …
    ​..Under current law, the government can compel “electronic communications service providers” that have direct access to communications to assist the NSA in conducting Section 702 surveillance.
    ​ In practice, that means companies like Verizon and Google must turn over the communications of the targets of Section 702 surveillance. (The targets must be foreigners overseas, although the communications can—and do—include communications with Americans.)
    ​ Through a seemingly innocuous change to the definition of “electronic communications surveillance provider,” an amendment offered by House intel committee (HPSCI) leaders and passed by the House vastly expands the universe of entities that can be compelled to assist the NSA.
    ​ If the bill becomes law, any company or individual that provides ANY service whatsoever may be forced to assist in NSA surveillance, as long as they have access to equipment on which communications are transmitted or stored—such as routers, servers, cell towers, etc. That sweeps in an enormous range of U.S. businesses that provide wifi to their customers and therefore have access to equipment on which communications transit. Barber shops, laundromats, fitness centers, hardware stores, dentist’s offices… the list goes on and on.
    ​ It also includes commercial landlords that rent out the office space where tens of millions of Americans go to work every day—offices of journalists, lawyers, nonprofits, financial advisors, health care providers, and more.​

    ​ “We Have 15,000 Samples In Wuhan … Could Do Full Genomes Of 700 CoVs”: Rand Paul Drops COVID Bombshell
    ​ Last week Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) wrote in a Tuesday op-ed that officials from 15 federal agencies “knew in 2018 that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was trying to create a coronavirus like COVID-19.”…
    ..Paul points to an email between EcoHealth’s Daszak and “Fauci Flunky” David Morens from April 26, 2020 (noted days before by the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic), when the lab-leak hypothesis was gaining traction against Fauci …In it, Daszak laments the “real and present danger that we are being targeted by extremists” … and called Donald Trump “shockingly ignorant.”
    ​ He also told David that he would restrict communications “to gmail from now on,” and planned to mount a response to an NIH request which appears to suggest moving out of Wuhan – to which Daszak says “Even that would be a loss – we have 15,000 samples in freezers in Wuhan and could do the full genomes of 700+ Co Vs we’ve identified if we don’t cut this thread.”..​
    ..Daszak, funded by Fauci, lied when he said “every single one of the SARSr-CoV sequences @EcoHealthNYC discovered in China is already published.”

    ​The copy of that email communication is here:

    New NPR CEO Katherine Maher gave a Ted Talk during which she asserted that “truth” is a “distraction” which is “getting in the way of getting things done.”

    Joseph Mercola MD, WHO Cancer Agency Predicts 77% Rise in Cancers by 2050. Is the Covid Vaccine Causing Turbo Cancers?
    WHO blamed the projected cancer burden increase on a combination of age and environmental factors, stating:6
    “The rapidly growing global cancer burden reflects both population ageing and growth, as well as changes to people’s exposure to risk factors, several of which are associated with socioeconomic development. Tobacco, alcohol and obesity are key factors behind the increasing incidence of cancer, with air pollution still a key driver of environmental risk factors.”
    ​ But it did not mention the emergence of rapid-growing cancers of the breast, colon, esophagus, kidney, liver, pancreas, bile duct, brain, lung and blood — including exceedingly rare types of cancer. As noted by Canadian oncologist and cancer researcher Dr. William Makis in the Highwire interview above,7 these cancers are showing up in young people, many under age 30, with no family history of cancer.
    ​ They’re showing up in pregnant women and young children. Equally odd is the fact that most are Stage 3 or 4 by the time they’re diagnosed, with symptoms arising only days or weeks before. The cancers grow and spread so rapidly, many of these patients die before treatment can even begin. Most of them are also resistant to conventional treatment.
    ​ The phenomenon has become common enough that the term “turbo cancers” was coined to describe these rapid-growing cancers in people who have received one or more COVID jabs.​

    ​ The US-Mexico Dispute Over GM Corn Safety Could Transform American Agriculture​ (Non-organic US corn all has Round​Up in it.​ All chips and tortillas…)​
    Mexico filed a 200-page response to the U.S. trade violation complaint, which many observers say fulfilled the onus of its argument. It offered 66 articles in peer-reviewed journals pointing to GM corn’s associated health risks including increased damage to organs, cancer, antibiotic resistance, and reduced nutritional content.​ Mexico’s decree also included a ban on glyphosate originally intended to go into effect on April 1, but the government pushed back that date while researching alternatives available in suitable quantities.
    ​ GM corn is tightly wed to glyphosate, the key ingredient in RoundUp and other herbicides. That’s because one of the most prominent traits in GM corn is resistance to glyphosate, the main ingredient in RoundUp. Monsanto, the German firm making most of the GM corn grown in the United States, calls the corn “Roundup Ready.” A rise in the use of glyphosate closely paralleled the rise in use of GM corn seed.​

    House Republicans released the text of three bills Wednesday that would provide aid for Ukraine, Israel and the Indo-Pacific region, with the latter intended to help deter Chinese aggression in the area.
    The House is expected to vote on the bills Saturday. President Joe Biden said in a statement Wednesday that he supports the aid package.

    Here’s what’s included in the bills, according to a summary provided by House Republicans:

    Nearly $61 billion for Ukraine
    ( )
    One of the bills would provide a total of nearly $61 billion to assist Ukraine and others in the region fight Russia – about the same that was included in the Senate bill.

    Of that total, about $23 billion would be used to replenish US weapons, stockpiles and facilities, and more than $11 billion would fund current US military operations in the region.

    Nearly $14 billion included in the bill would help Ukraine buy advanced weapons systems and other defense equipment.

    More than $26 billion for Israel
    ( )
    The House package would provide $26.4 billion to aid Israel, specifying that the funds are to support “its effort to defend itself against Iran and its proxies, and to reimburse US military operations in response to recent attacks,” according to a summary of the legislation.
    The funding includes $4 billion for the Iron Dome and David’s Sling missile defense systems and $1.2 billion for the Iron Beam defense system, which counters short-range rockets and mortar threats.

    It would also provide $4.4 billion to replenish defense items and services provided to Israel and $3.5 billion for the procurement of advanced weapons systems and other items through the Foreign Military Financing Program. Plus, it would provide additional flexibility for transfers of defense items to Israel from US stockpiles held in other countries and would prohibit sending funds to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, or UNRWA, which supports Palestinian refugees and has come under fire after Israel alleged some of its staff were involved in Hamas’ October 7 attack.

    Also included is $9.2 billion in humanitarian assistance – including emergency food, shelter and basic services – to populations suffering crises.

    More than $8 billion for Indo-Pacific security
    ( )
    The House package includes $8.1 billion to counter China’s actions in the Indo-Pacific region. It includes $3.3 billion to develop submarine infrastructure, $2 billion in foreign military financing for Taiwan and other key allies, and $1.9 billion to replenish defense items and services provided to Taiwan and regional partners.

    Which looks better to you in the short term, and gazing into the medium and longer terms?
    Does one do better sooner and later, or not?

    Have you joined the search for investment returns? Most investments either have shitty returns, terrible terms or horrible risk. I am no expert, not enough to offer even an informed opinion, but we have invested mostly in China, Taiwan, Japan and NZ. The west is batshit crazy, the east is hungry for bigger returns.

    What will happen? How will it play out? When you find out, please let me know. I am still amazed that share holders haven’t all cashed out their Tesla stock while the going is good, so I am not the person to ask about investing. At least east and west stock market indexes are still going up, for the time being. Property is much less certain, but at least property has utility.

Interesting how their relationship with China will pan out going forward. WEF still running NZ, by the look of it?
