Once states revert to war due to lack of diplomacy, it's extremely difficult to find a route to cessation of warfare and a peaceful resolution. Both sides aim to go all out for a military victory.

Momentarily listening to speech by Emmanuel Macron ... somehow it does remind me of the emotional speech in 2003 ahead of the American and UK invasion of Iraq.

Only difference the French FM was on the right side of history ... about today's conflict history will judge. Washington's campaign for a NWO by division and calling out Russia and China as adversaries in a capitalistic world order of US version of "democracy".

Macron now refers to the poverty and hunger stricken in Africa ... a bit late isn't it Emmanuel ... he adds climate change and the failure of the War on Terror.

As The World Turns ... 🌎 🌍 the Report of Rome of 1960 ... many crisis ago. 😡

Further Escalation in NATO Proxy War

On The Upcoming Putin Speech And Announcements

Moscow has made a decision how to proceed in the proxy war with NATO in the Ukraine.

We do not yet know what the decision is.

....
My hunch is that Russia received information over some weapon systems the U.S. is secretly providing to the Ukraine. This could be missiles with several hundred kilometer range or other types of weapons that could seriously threaten Russia's towns and cities.

If so, Russia has to do something now to end the war before its becomes more than a nuisance for Russia and its people. Ending means of course by winning it.
Training up a mobilization force takes about three months. It would put it on the front in the mid of winter, a season during which Russian forces can operate quite well.

Russian stock exchange dropped 15% today ...

Pitiful David Sanger. Pitiful me.

Last night I watched Zero Days (2016). The scale of the exploit and culumny heaped on mendacity is more perverted than I had imagined, when the story broke in '14.

Which thoroughly re-animated my contempt for G7 "laws of war," including but not limited to "Media Freedom" and "Emergency Instruments" d/b/a cybersecurity.
