    Yeah what’s up with that, hard to dig for an update last few days.
    What about all the dark agendas you guys go on about? Shouldn’t we be getting force fed front page false flags daily? Zzzzzzzzz

    :D

    Iraq was the "other Ukraine", which was "liberated" against its will, despite no support in the UN.

    I have a feeling Taiwan will be the next "Ukraine".

    If it's old news, the Russians are in trouble as the West is suppose to fear them and markets should be in complete meltdown due to the loss of gas and oil supply.

    What we now know. The world isn't short of oil and gas, it's only a logistics issue. Yes, no more $300 oil, at least for the foreseeable future. The loss of the Russian market hardly dents S&P. But sanctions remain on Russia. Brain drain continues. And 200k less about 30k of the original special ops team still remain stuck in Ukraine, unable to advance or retreat and immobilised at the rate of 1000 a day. :eek: Extrapolate...

    After COVID and the vaccine which everyone is forced to take, missiles, ballistics, hypersonic and even nukes aren't scary any more. COVID and the vaccine is more scary than nukes.

    Taiwan is probably useless to China at this point. Factory equipment and engineers can be shipped or flown out before any possible invasion or destroyed within days of an invasion, leaving nothing behind except economic sanctions. What China needs is resources, oil, gas, iron and grains. This will be the priority.

    Does anyone have information regarding the current "new COVID wave" in China and the lockdowns?

    Pretty much everyone was sure that "Omicron" will be the last strain of the virus, which will eliminate Delta and the other strains. Now it seems like something is happening in China or only they're just more delayed with Omicron?

    Should have spoken with the staff at the Ukrainian Bio-labs to find out which variant they were due to release next.

    This reads like the front page of a woman’s magazine with the amount of hyperbole in it. do you honestly believe all this or are you just posting mental diarrhoea to see if anything sticks

    That’s what happens when you have poor operational security and your MLRS gets followed by drone back to the underground parking lot you were using as an ammo dump.

    I first knew about the "pneumonia" outbreak in China from a close contact on the 18th Jan 2020. He placed an order for 3 boxes of 3M N95 masks on the 10th Jan. The first couple of days was surreal to me as surgical masks were sold out everywhere when I started looking for them on the 20th Jan.

    This is my first hand experience. Don't tell me about ZH or some other news sources. I only believe in what I see. There was a cover up at least initially, but somehow the news still leaked out through word of mouth. People were talking about it in their closed communities that some very deadly virus is spreading and that you need to get hold of masks asap.

    My question was about what is happening now in China. Because one can't trust the media. But allegedly... (yeah, who knows really what's going on): China is locking down major cities right now. Google shows a tremendous spike of cases.

    I don't know: is this COVID-22 or still Omicron? Did Omicron reach China a bit late or is this a new strain?

    I was getting ready to throw the masks away, I can already throw up due to wearing them for 2 years!!!

    HK will give a clue. When your house is on fire, do you add oil? :D

    But nothing makes sense today so I would keep the masks and the sanitisers just in case.

    It's easy to see what's the truth if you know their bias. The opposite of what ZH says about the West is more likely than not to be the truth. And the opposite of what CNN says about Trump is more likely than not to be the truth.

    The West should consider measures to stop Russia using its gold reserves, the prime minister has said.

    Boris Johnson's comments came as the UK announced sanctions on 65 more groups and individuals, including a private military firm and a major Russian bank.

    Speaking ahead of a Nato summit, the PM said the UK and the West must "tighten the economic vice" on Vladimir Putin.

    He said Russia crossed "red lines" by targeting Ukrainian civilians and tough steps now could help shorten the war.

    In addition to the new raft of financial sanctions, the UK government has announced plans to send 6,000 more missiles to Ukraine.

    Leaders from Nato, the EU, and the G7 are holding emergency meetings in Brussels to discuss the ongoing situation in Ukraine.


    The Nato summit is expected to approve the formation of four new battlegroups in eastern Europe, while Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky used a virtual address on Thursday morning to urge the bloc to increase its supply of military equipment.

    Ahead of the talks, Mr Johnson said that, by deliberately bombing civilian centres, Putin had "already crossed the red line into barbarism".

    "We've got to step up. We've got to increase our support," he said.

    "We've got to tighten the economic vice around Putin, sanctioning more people today, as we are, sanctioning the Wagner Group, looking at what we can do to stop Putin using his gold reserves."

    Not into fantasy fiction however loosely based on current affairs.

    Prefer reading John le Carré, Robert Ludlum and Tom Clancy myself :)
