This is interesting.... less than a week after their SCO, Russia, China, and Iran are facing massive population unrest.

Russia is facing mass protests because nobody believes mobilization for Ukraine/Pacific is "partial", and all men are scurrying for any exit.

Iran is facing mass protests because of women's right to NOT wear "headpiece". Hilariously, they summon ambassadors
for "meddling" in a self-inflicted wound:

China has its own "unsubstantiated" rumors of a military coup by Li Qiaoming, that Xi has been under house arrest since he flew back to Beijing.
However, something is indeed happening, as over 6000 flights have been canceled, and the military has blockaded Beijing into a siege.
Here's a English mosaic of various view of the rumors.

Another source from India.

We never know what is going to set off a group of people, who've been under so much pressure.

In China - it truly is a who knows situation - keeping eyes on this one.

Well, this is interesting. Big marker in terms of EU Russia progression.


Guess 007 James Bond knew this was going to happen sometime... "THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH" movie basically outlines the same pipeline scenarios in the same general region.

The question now is... who did it?

But certainly this means EU is finished as an industrial zone, since it will take at least 10 years to fully stabilize the energy grid due to the past 20 years of failed green energy policies that destroyed "old" energy capacity that took 30-50 years to build.

Good luck, Germany.

Yes, some are saying the US did it. But here lies the dilemma. If US did it, then it will destroy the NATO alliance and hand EU into Putin's hands.
Does the US really want to do that at this point?

Now we can point to the same 007 movie or Mission Impossible ones where.. there is a third party (rogue government or private like the Syndicate)
that wants to see a full world war break out.
This...... opens up a whole bunch of possibilities.

Update:
Predictably... Escalation.

And the plot thickens......


So, it seems the simple answer is that the EU destroyed Nordstream to facilitate the Norway pipeline. Using the explosion as a false flag.
Just like 007.

Also, it seems Xi has been under "soft house arrest" by the military. The Chinese military does not want to "commit suicide" by going to Ukraine.
Turns out Putin had called Xi's red hotline, and got no answer. Discussed this with Modi, and his Indian intelligence found out that Xi has indeed been "taken down" and is now under military control.

The reason? Chinese military logically stated "we are not stupid. that is your war. put your own people into your war. we have our war to fight in the Pacific Rim, and we need North Korea as well. Go ef yourself, Putin".
AND... this is why Putin immediately called for mobilization. He knew the SCO had no teeth anymore.

BTW - just like fake Biden, Adam's apple Kamala, and Slick Newsom.. US is also under military control.

Ignore all the Putin pronouncements. Other than the recent martial law declaration (which means he knows he's losing badly and soldiers are deserting to Ukrainian groups in droves).

Look at this regularly updated map. Pretty amazing how much detail this has:

It's obvious Putin is losing badly, Ukraine is relatively close to re-capturing Mariupol, and right on the outskirts of Kherson. In some cases, there are anecdotes that they are already past Kherson because the Russian troops basically said "go ahead, I don't care."

Well, big update. We are about to see a major expansion of Ukrainian reclaimed territory in the South, since Russia has withdrawn from Kherson.


And Putin is still sending untrained recruits to the frontlines with inadequate supply, WW2-level rifles and weaponry, and bad food.
And now this - he is desperate.


And.... he did not attend the G20 meeting, which tells you a lot. He is feeling the heat from both domestic and foreign leaders.

Coupled with the capture of Izyum and Lyman (critical rail supply nodes in the north, Kherson in the south), the Russians have no way to move forward now their supply lines are cut. This is precisely why they are forced to withdraw from Kherson.

This means... with HIMARS and M777 and CAESAR weapons, Crimea is next (since part of the bridge was blown up - the road part) as there is also no way to quickly supply Crimea with soldiers and heavy weaponry. The rail is still working, but there is a limit to the weight as the rail bridge is thinner and less reinforced.

Ukraine (as Zelensky declared) is planning to take back Crimea by Spring 2023. That also means Lugansk-Donetsk regions are toast as precision shelling takes its toll 24-7. With Starlink and US-UK-Ukraine military communication systems, Ukraine can send shells and RPGs at night at precision targets without any warning. Russia is still fighting with WW2 level weaponry, blind as a bat.
