a sea of neo-Prometheism and goofy new Volhynia Experiments...
frankly this war is boring now and i wish someone somewhere could invent some geopolitical crisis that was fresh and original: a land war in europe? ok grandpa
Hersh just dropped the dirt on the US and Norway doin the dirt on Nordstream so perhaps that will breathe new whatever into the thing for ya
Expect Hersh's bombshell scoop to get smeared by the corporate media as they've done to nearly all of his scoops going back to his 1974 exposé on CIA's illegal domestic spy program—attacked by WaPo, Time, Newsweek, etc, but validated by Church Committee.https://t.co/eAPrxtJa8E pic.twitter.com/uX1chiLvjZ— Mark Ames (@MarkAmesExiled) February 8, 2023
This annoys me so much. I’ve been hate-listening and observing his brain try to compute this war for a year and he’s gotten every single thing wrong, and by far the worst was him saying the Russians probably blew their own pipeline up.

agreed that it will be fun to watch the struggle with Hersh by Western journalists trying to discredit him. All of whom were privately 100% confident already that something like his story was the truth, but that they were powerful elite brain-lords for knowing that but not saying it. Easy layup for him whenever that happens.
the Western journalists appear to have settled on "All of us were privately 100% confident already that something like his story was the truth, but we were powerful elite brain-lords for knowing that but not saying it."
putin likely to spin ICC arrest warrent as proofthat west wants to arest him
limited hangout "leak" about how NATO's sending a lot of guns to Ukraine instead of a moderate amount… doesn't feel like the intended audience is even paying attention right now.
Felt like a crossover event with the tiktok ban/super patriot act bill. All the coverage I heard was much less on the content or the effect of the leaks - it was all about “finding the leaker or leakers!” - a nice little sales story for promoting a huge increase in surveillance that is safe from FOIA and doesn’t need warrants
#Prigozhin has proven a double-edged sword like none other:#Wagner, with its remarkable adaptability, has hugely benefitted the Russian state in its disastrous #Ukraine campaign over many months; no doubt.— Hanna Notte (@HannaNotte) June 24, 2023
Now, that adaptation is turning into a massive liability for #Putin.
looking for an opinion on wagner that is better than "he was a german composer"
there just isn't one. it's a bog standard mutiny. any marxist and materialist analysis of the 21st century relationship of ukraine/russia especially vis-a-vis nazo/amerikkka/the fourth neoliberal reich only underlines that russian capitalist leadership has degenerated to the point that the relations of all personal actors in the russian elite is ostensibly feudal in nature and the impossibility of a monopoly of violence by the current throneholders has been foreshadowed quite well by the late ottoman empire; no energy exports to a once loyal buyer, black sea force projection evaporated, internal consumption of defence goods outstripping supply... prigozhin is no muhammed ali pasha; first as tragedy, then as farce.
me, who still lives in a prelapsarian state: the NATO summit tote bag
yes Mark I wonder why the satrapy is being stripped for parts by foreigners while the state run by its own national bourgeoisie is not. Probably libertarianism, an important global political tendency that arises mysteriously in mayfly governments around the world funded by act of U.S. Congress.
