süden [2008]

Military coups are always the worst solution.

But they are a solution.

Theoretically.

As we know from decision theory.

Action vs. inaction.

Legal vs. extralegal.

A history of coups.

876 BC: Zimri, a military commander of Israel, kills King Elah–Zimri then briefly becoming king (before himself committing suicide to preempt a countercoup [?] by another military commander named Omri)

Was this history’s first coup d’état?

Was it, at the very least, the first military coup in recorded history?

Many coups followed.

In many countries around the world.

And the result was governance by groups with names the likes of The Four Hundred (Athens) and the Thirty Tyrants (also Athens).

But let us not forget that coups (generally speaking) HAVE occasionally produced good, long-term results.

For instance, it was a coup d’état which ended the Roman Kingdom and marked the beginning of the Roman Republic in 509 BC.

Friendly reminder–the USA is a republic.

But let’s get back to this sticky subject of military coups.

After 876 BC in Israel, it appears the next major MILITARY coup did not occur until 185 BC–nearly 700 years later.

The site was the Maurya Empire.

Its capital was Pataliputra:  present day Patna (eastern India).

The Maurya Empire in 185 BC controlled much of what is present-day India.

The emperor was overthrown by General Pushyamitra Shunga.

We cannot possibly list every example of a military coup, but we must mention Julius Caesar.

Caesar was in a very similar position to that in which Donald Trump now finds himself in January 2023.

With the prospect of a “rigged election” before him (in which his win would almost certainly have not been ratified by Pompey and his allies), Caesar crossed the Rubicon with the Legio XIII Gemina and marched on Rome.

There is only one problem (if you will):  it certainly APPEARS that Donald Trump (nor Bolsonaro in Brazil) no longer commands anything equivalent to a Roman legion.

He DID command it.

As Commander-in-Chief of the entire U.S. military.

But it APPEARS that he left office.

Why?

When Caesar marched on Rome, the Roman senate fled to Greece.

Pompey fled to Egypt (where he was murdered).

Did the Roman Republic end with the First Triumvirate?

Even if the First Triumvirate was a misnomer of sorts (involving a political alliance between Pompey and Caesar)?

The political alliance of the First Triumvirate began to disintegrate.

Political corruption and violence consumed Rome.

Let it be remembered that Pompey’s wife was Julia:  daughter of Caesar.

She died in childbirth during this time.

But here is the key point:  CAESAR CHOSE CIVIL WAR OVER LAYING DOWN HIS COMMAND.

Yes, that is a quote from Wikipedia.

This would have been akin to Trump refusing to leave the White House.

When did Trump find out that CJCS Milley had been in secret contact with the Chinese (according to The New York Post) and even guaranteed them that any attack on them ordered by Trump, in the final days of his Presidency, would be preceded by a WARNING to the Chinese FROM MILLEY HIMSELF?

His Friday statement comes days after the tell-all book “Peril,” by Washington Post staffers Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, revealed the general made several calls to counterpart Gen. Li Zuocheng of the People’s Liberation Army to assure him of US stability. 

Milley reportedly first called Li on Oct. 30 to reassure him that the US military “are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you.” Milley reportedly went so far as to tell Li that if President Donald Trump did order military action against China, “I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”

https://nypost.com/2021/09/17/milley-claims-china-calls-perfectly-within-the-duties-of-his-role/

What the fuck?!?

That sounds like the most clear-cut case of treason of which I have ever heard.

Milley has retained his role as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Biden.

Milley is, officially, head of the U.S. military.

His immediate boss (in the tradition of “civilian” control) is General Lloyd Austin:  Secretary of Defense (who had to get special dispensation from Congress to hold this role [due to his previous experience as a U.S. Army general]).

It APPEARS there was no coup.

Trump publicly said he would never “do a coup” with the likes of Milley.

Trump’s last Secretary of Defense, Christopher Miller, stated explicitly that his goal in the final days of the Trump Presidency was to prevent a coup.

Adam Ciralsky wrote about Christopher Miller and Ezra Cohen (both of whom gave the journalist exclusive inside access during Trump’s final days) in Vanity Fair.  Of Miller, he writes:

He had three goals. “No military coup, no major war, and no troops in the street,” 

https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2021/01/embedding-with-pentagon-leadership-in-trumps-chaotic-last-week

This is a significant article because it shows particularly Cohen IMMEDIATELY throwing Trump under the proverbial bus upon the transition to the Biden administration.

As Cohen strangely told Ciralsky,

“The president threw us under the bus. And when I say ‘us,’ I don’t mean only us political appointees or only us Republicans. He threw America under the bus. He caused a lot of damage to the fabric of this country. Did he go and storm the Capitol himself? No. But he, I believe, had an opportunity to tamp things down and he chose not to. And that’s really the fatal flaw. I mean, he’s in charge. And when you’re in charge, you’re responsible for what goes wrong.”

Why would a Defense Clandestine Service (Defense Intelligence Agency spy) be such a pussy when it comes to something as tame as January 6th?

Really:  does Cohen spend his weekends playing croquet and knitting koozies?

Does he drink beer with his pinky in the air?

What the fuck?!?

This is the same bizarre, “righteous” indignation which characterizes CJCS Mark Milley as concerns January 6th.

The following meme has been fact-checked and the quote is a verbatim utterance of the Chairman:

IMG_0842

What makes Milley particularly pathetic is his sycophantic thralldom to the Biden administration.

There was nothing racial about January 6th, yet Milley felt compelled to make it an issue of race.

Milley felt compelled to imply that Trump supporters were strictly white.

And that the violent parties on January 6th were, therefore, white Trump supporters.

But the most egregious aspect of his argument is that Trump supporters, concerned that the 2020 election was not free and fair, turned out at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 motivated by “WHITE RAGE” [emphasis mine].

Milley may have gone to Princeton, but it appears he never really learned how to research.

And I bet Putin could trounce him in ice hockey (to boot!).

His logic is so thoroughly-shoddy that he implies Trump supporters were racist for wanting Trump (a white man) instead of Biden (also a white man) as President in 2020.

It APPEARS Trump missed his Julius Caesar moment.

Is this good for America?

Perhaps.

Is this bad for America?

Perhaps.

It is true that Caesar declared himself “dictator in perpetuity”.

But when exactly did the Roman Republic end?

The truth is far more rich.

The Roman senate backed Caesar into a corner.

They “telegraphed” that they would not allow him to win the coming election in which he sought to run.

The Roman senate sought to castrate Julius Caesar’s power.

Just as Mark Milley unconstitutionally castrated Trump’s power as Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. armed forces.

Trump was Milley’s boss.

Milley went behind his boss’s back and called our biggest adversary (the People’s Republic of China) to ASSURE them that he would give them a “heads up” were his boss to move towards kinetic military action against them.

That is treason.

There is no good excuse for that.

Milley, like James Comey, only PRETENDS to be an honorable man.

But let us pause for a second.

Who, in the American political landscape, most corresponds to Pompey (if Trump was Julius Caesar)?

The emotional pick might be Mike Pence.

And I can understand why Republicans loathe Pence.

Indeed, I would not piss on Pence were he on fire.

But I think the best analogy to Pompey was Nancy Pelosi.

Pelosi is now politically finished.

It took a long time.

It was messy.

But it involved no crossing of the Rubicon.

The problem remains, however:  will the 2024 election be clean enough of corruption to be truly characterized as “free and fair”?

I liken Biden’s “victory” to that of Lukashenko in Belarus.

The Western establishment does not recognize the 2020 election in Belarus as having been “free and fair”.

They consider Lukashenko to be a “pretender” President.

Fine.

Then, as my song goes, we can say, “Lukashenko won fair and square just like Joe Biden” [and vice versa]:

https://open.spotify.com/track/3Afhd6zFEgYkQMj6XudKpT?si=af284fddc1514975

N.B.  Probably the only country and western song ever written about a Belarusian leader.

Nancy Pelosi initially won.

She and her cronies got away with the rigged election of 2020 in the USA.

But she was LEGALLY defeated in 2022.

She’s done.

She is no longer the Speaker.

I am not a fan of Kevin McCarthy.

But let’s be honest:  is the pendulum about to swing back the other direction BIGLY?

Yes.

Kevin McCarthy is no Trump.

He’s not even a Jim Jordan.

But let’s be honest.

He’s not Pelosi.

Few Democrats are as nasty and corrupt as Pelosi.

And she is gone.

Out the door.

No more power.

No more power to preside over kangaroo courts.

We endured two years of it.

Enough!

There was a civil war in Rome.

Caesar vs. Pompey.

That is exactly what would have happened in the USA had Trump been allowed to win (he did win!) the 2020 election.

Antifa and Black Lives Matter would have destroyed the country.

Trump would have had to use the American military ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

This would have been tragic.

Let it be remembered, by the way, how forgiving Mark Milley was of the George Floyd protests (riots):

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley dismissed the George Floyd riots as “penny packet protests” — insisting they weren’t an insurrection because the mobs only “used spray paint,” according to a new book.

https://nypost.com/2021/09/17/milley-told-trump-the-george-floyd-protests-were-no-big-deal/

The USA would have become very much like Russia had Trump staged a military coup (assuming a coup could have even been mustered and coordinated).

Trump would have become very much a Putin sort of character.

Or a Julius Caesar sort of character.

“Caesar held both the dictatorship and the tribunate, and alternated between the consulship and the proconsulship,” to quote that estimable source that is never wrong (Wikipedia).

Sound like anyone?

Sounds like Putin to me.

And I love Putin.

I really do.

I think he is a great leader for Russia.

But that is not what happened in America.

That is not the path Trump CHOSE.

APPARENTLY.

Will Trump look like a genius if he can manage to return to power PEACEFULLY (unlike Julius Caesar)?

Yes.

Trump will look like a genius if that happens.

But it appears we have to wait two more years for that.

My only complaint about Trump is that he is (how shall I put this kindly?) a #VaccineMoron .

And this is a very serious issue indeed.

I wrote about it in my last article here:

https://paulydeathwish.com/2023/01/20/der-untergang-2004/

This CURRENT article (which I am writing at the moment [and you are reading {are you still reading?}]) is dedicated to Dr. Steve Pieczenik–without whom my ability to understand complex dynamics would not exist.

The link which I just posted is dedicated to Alex Jones (who agrees that Trump has made [and continues to make] a very grave mistake in pissing on the backs of Americans and telling them it’s raining).

Trump’s weak spot is this:  the vaccines.

It is my opinion that this could be rectified in a matter of moments.

HOWEVER, every day that Trump waits to tell the TRUTH about the COVID vaccines (that he RUSHED to market!) is going to make it that much harder for him to WIN BACK the TRUST of the American people.

Trump has been selling the same load of shit on the vaccines as Anthony Fauci.

That is a VERY bad look.

And it will become exponentially more so by the day.

GOOD advisors tell their bosses the truth.

I have heard that Trump doesn’t particularly like people who kiss his ass.

Good.

Mr. President, please disavow the COVID vaccines ASAP.

They are bullshit.

You know it.

We know it.

Yet you persist in singing their praises:

https://www.newsweek.com/trump-says-he-saved-100-million-lives-covid-vaccines-1774178

I am here with unsolicited advice for Trump…because (like Alex Jones) I WANT Trump to win in 2024.

But I cannot support a candidate who is a fucking moron and a goddamned liar when it comes to the vaccines.

There is the TRUTH, Mr. President.

I hope you are President again.

The choice is yours.

I am prepared to campaign for ANYONE who gets the vaccine issue right.

It is THE ISSUE, sir.

Get this issue wrong, and you lose the election.

It will not be a matter of being rigged or not.

It will be you FUCKING IT UP.

Don’t fuck it up, sir.

Tell the truth about the vaccines.

They are neither safe, nor effective.

[as my most recent article simply and elegantly proves in truly very few macro data points]

-PD

Der Untergang [2004)

Donald Trump has continuously and repeatedly betrayed the U.S. military and the American people by maintaining that the COVID vaccines available in the USA are “safe and effective”.  The U.S. military were coerced into taking the COVID-19 vaccines which Trump rushed to market under Operation Warp Speed (more like “ludicrous speed” [think Spaceballs, but no laughing matter]).  He refuses to confront reality:

https://www.newsweek.com/trump-says-he-saved-100-million-lives-covid-vaccines-1774178

The only possible caveat is the hypothesis that the U.S. military were given a vaccine that is not available to the general public (because the safety profile of all three of the vaccines commercially-available in the USA [as documented below by the VAERS system {as open-source-compiled by OpenVAERS}] is, frankly, atrocious [by any historical definition of a “safe” vaccine {see the 1976 U.S. halt to the swine flu mass vaccination program, after just 362 cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome were reported in 45 million Americans vaccinated, as an instructive example of what previously defined “unsafe”}]):

https://www.armytimes.com/news/your-army/2021/04/07/armys-own-vaccine-that-could-fight-covid-variants-begins-clinical-trials/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1976_swine_flu_outbreak

https://academic.oup.com/aje/article/175/11/1129/140385

Data from the U.S. government’s VAERS system (a dual-agency [CDC and FDA] product) has borne out the dangers of these vaccines for the past two years.

The data (including numerous, copious reports of heart attacks [18,181] and death [33,591] in reasonably-close temporal relation to the administration of the three COVID vaccines available in the USA) are available here:

https://www.openvaers.com/covid-data

Even the CDC admits “18,649 preliminary [sic] reports of death”…”after COVID-19 vaccination”:

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/adverse-events.html

These statistics should (if history is any guide) be read as being at least one order of magnitude too low.  The voluntary “passive surveillance” of the VAERS system caught roughly just 2.5% of the cases of Kawasaki disease in children (a serious vaccine adverse reaction) during the period 1990-2007 associated with the vaccine RotaTeq:

https://www.bmj.com/rapid-response/2011/11/02/underreporting-vaccine-adverse-events

Therefore, 18,649 vaccine deaths (current CDC number[an extremely-low number compared the the actual statistics in the VAERS system]) should be read as 745,960 vaccine deaths in the USA (so far).

The seemingly far-more-accurate current OpenVAERS number of 33,591 vaccine deaths should be read as 1,343,640 vaccine deaths in the USA (so far).

N.B.  The actual submitted VAERS reports can be read (and counted!) at OpenVAERS.  The same cannot be said of the CDC’s adverse events page (link above).  Why is VAERS not available as a read-only product anywhere but at http://www.openvaers.com ?  Why don’t the CDC and/or FDA make the VAERS system available in a read-only version to the American public (if there is indeed nothing to hide)?  It should be noted that the CDC and FDA have gone in the opposite direction since 11/18/2022–making the VAERS system MORE SECRETIVE and hidden from the public.  “Text field information” is no longer a part of the free public data if users are accessing VAERS from Europe/UK.

As for the efficacy of these vaccines, more Americans died “of COVID” during Biden’s first year in office (2021)–a year in which these vaccines were widely available and taken en masse by the American public–than died during Trump’s last year in office (2020):  a year in which no COVID vaccines were available in the USA until after that year’s November elections.

Alex’s War [2022)

The United States of America is over.

It is finished.

We fought hard.

But we failed.

Because of traitors like General Mark Milley, General Lloyd Austin, and Admiral Michael Gilday.

But those who really let us down were the ones we truly believed in:

General Paul Nakasone: loser

General Jay Raymond: loser

General C.Q. Brown: loser

General David Berger: loser

General James McConville: loser

U.S. CYBERCOM: losers

U.S. Space Force: losers

Defense Intelligence Agency: losers

U.S. Army Intel G2: losers

Fort Belvoir: losers

Fort Huachuca: losers

Fort Meade: uber-losers

All of these men and agencies have let us down.

They allowed an illegitimately-selected President, Joe Biden, to be illegally installed.

They did not step into the breach and defend the country.

They have stood by as we have been slaughtered.

So I say, “Fuck them.”

I spit on their pitiable memories.

History will piss on Nakasone, Raymond, Brown, Berger, and McConville.

History will be far less kind than that to Milley, Austin, and Gilday.

So what is to be done?

Putin is a great leader.

But he is not our leader.

He is far away.

He is decisive.

He doesn’t bullshit.

Putin won.

Vladimir Putin: winner

Russia: winner

China: admirable

Why?

Because China stood by Russia and against the neo-Nazi Azov Regiment.

China: winner

United States of America: loser

Germany: loser

United Kingdom: loser

France: loser

NATO: total fucking losers

So what is to be done?

Make art.

Alex Lee Moyer made a film.

This film.

A great film.

An ESSENTIAL film.

Will it be in the Criterion Collection someday?

Probably so.

But I don’t give a shit.

We are fucked.

There is no Criterion Collection in our future.

Is this film better than Oliver Stone’s JFK?

Probably not.

But that’s ok.

Make art.

It takes practice.

How many films has she directed?

This is a VERY GOOD film.

That is nothing to scoff at.

Make art.

Art is information.

Keep fighting.

Keep shifting.

Survive.

Evade.

Resist.

Escape.

SERE.

Make art.

Pozner is a piece of shit.

Veronique is a piece of shit.

Make art.

It ain’t over till it’s over.

China is not my enemy.

Sorry, Alex Jones.

BUT I would fight for Alex Jones eight days a week before I would fight for China.

But China is not my enemy.

Trump faced a crisis situation.

Trump failed.

Putin faced a crisis situation.

Putin suceeded.

Trump bailed.

Fight or flight.

Putin fought.

Putin won.

Putin protected his country.

Trump failed to protect America.

The U.S. military has failed to protect America.

The U.S. military is a dismal failure.

How long will the U.S. military sit idly by and watch the country get economically slaughtered?

How long will the U.S. military be the grunts for a criminal Federal government?

How long?

I sympathize with Trump.

Trump did not deserve to be raided.

But I sympathize much more with Alex Jones.

If Trump doesn’t disavow the three COVID vaccines currently available in the USA, he is, politically, toast.

But we have no elections anymore.

How long will the U.S. military stay on the sidelines while fake elections are conducted every 2-4 years?

How long?

China is not my enemy.

Communism works in China.

Why?

Because east Asia has a tradition of anonymity and collectivism.

Look at the musical traditions of places like Thailand.

The compositions are not attributed to some esteemed composer.

The music belongs to the entire people.

It is created.

Who cares who created it.

Communism is in harmony with older Asian philosophy.

Communism works in China.

Russia is my model society.

Not Sweden.

Now Switzerland.

Not Japan.

Russia.

And Russia owes its entire existence and future to the bravery of one man: Vladimir Putin.

Trump was very brave.

Putin was far more brave.

Which is why Trump lost.

And Putin won.

America is now a toilet that won’t flush.

Europe is a cesspool.

Russia has a future.

And that future is as an ally of China.

China has a future.

And that future is as an ally of Russia.

If Turkey is smart, they will leave NATO and join BRICS.

China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea.

These countries are united.

And each day more countries join this bloc.

BRICS.

Brazil.

If India is smart, they will ally themselves with Russia and China.

Peace on the Asian subcontinent can be had.

Bring back Imran Khan.

Pakistan and China should remain allies.

All of Asia can and should be united.

Japan and South Korea are slaves of the United States.

If you live in Taiwan, and you want to live under liberal democracy, I would advise you to leave immediately.

If you have no problem with Chinese-style communism, then by all means: stay.

Trump lost.

He lost the battle.

He won the election.

But the election was neither free, nor fair.

The USA lost.

Fauci is to blame for Bidenflation.

Biden is to blame for American gas prices.

Klaus Schwab, Pope Bergoglio, and Prince Charles are to blame for the collapse of Europe.

And Boris Johnson pissed away Europe’s future as well.

By allying himself so staunchly with Jewish Nazi Zelensky.

There is still hope for Bergoglio.

Because he blames NATO for the war in Ukraine.

On that point, he is absolutely correct.

What will happen in the U.S. midterms?

Will Nakasone finally do his job?

Will General Raymond finally do his job?

The USA has, at most, two years before it descends into a societal death spiral.

I honestly do not think we will make it even that long.

Is there any hope?

Make art.

And hope the U.S. military stops being pussies.

“I Saw Horrific War Crimes Committed by Azov” [2022)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=gzERUR003EQ

A former French soldier goes on Radio Sud.

His name is Adrien Bocquet.

He had been in Ukraine for 16 days.

A special operator (commando) there to render humanitarian (medical) aid.

He was in Kiev, Bucha, and Lvov.

Which is to say–he was everywhere.

He was where most don’t go (particularly Bucha).

Here is a man with extensive military and war experience.

[He is a paraplegic as a result of a military training exercise.]

The French speak to the French.

The carrots are cooked.

The carrots are cooked.

Study your history.

The French Resistance.

What were they resisting?

The Nazis.

Who had occupied their country.

And what were these cryptic radio broadcasts?

They were mainly rubbish.

Until the Resistance got the message they had been waiting for.

The French Resistance received a message.

And that message activated a network of saboteurs who wrecked railway lines, etc.

The French Resistance prepared the battlefield (the best they could) in a very important way for the Allies who landed on the beaches of Normandy (D-Day).

And today…the former allied countries (USA, France, etc.) are sending weapons to Ukrainian neo-Nazis (and lying to their domestic populations about the nature of this new ally [Ukraine] which they are supporting with unspeakable monetary and military donations).

Sud Radio Bercoff.

Present-day.

Parlons vrai.

Bocquet has written a book about his paralysis.

Published by Max Milo.

Every detail is important.

Lève toi et marche.

YouTube removed my song “Crimes Against Humanity”.

Here it is:

https://open.spotify.com/track/0MzTHxuzAqgGhkcukKDsBf?si=aa308652430d4839

https://music.apple.com/us/album/crimes-against-humanity/1606516493?i=1606516495

Who can most-easily recognize war crimes?

A soldier.

A soldier who has been trained to never (under no circumstances) ever commit these violations of the Geneva Conventions.

Mr. Bocquet says he saw no war crimes committed by Russians in Ukraine.

But that he saw MANY, MANY war crimes committed in Ukraine.

By the Ukrainian military (primarily the Azov Battalion [which, by the way, is a group which is closer to 20,000 neo-Nazi soldiers rather than just 5,000 neo-Nazi soldiers]).

And, as has been stated repeatedly here and elsewhere, the Azov Battalion is part of the official Ukrainian military force structure.

They are not a militia.

They are not separate from the Ukrainian military.

They are very much indeed a substantial portion of the mainline Ukrainian military.

And they are neo-Nazis.

And they were trained by NATO.

And they are currently being funded by the countries of NATO (including the $46 BILLION dollars flowing from the USA [thanks to the U.S. Congress being a bunch of ignorant fucking retards]).

Why did the Azov Battalion take as their main symbol the Wolfsangel of the Nazi SS?

Why did they likewise complement it with the Nazi “black sun” symbol (merely inverted to a white sun)?

[The Azov Battalion has, of course, recently (in the last few weeks) completely redesigned its patch.  Does that satisfy you, dear readers, that they are decidedly no longer neo-Nazis?  I’m sorry.  It doesn’t satisfy me.]

IMG_8420

Compare to the emblem (below) of the 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich (to cite but one example).

IMG_0104

What did Zelensky say about the Azov Battalion when questioned about them by (it must be admitted) rather pathetic Fox News journalist Bret Baier?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=yGiNzgxeoNk

This was the translation that played on Fox News:

“So, Azov was [sic] one of those many battalions.  They are what they are. (!)  They were defending our country.  And later I want to explain to you.  Everything, uh, from, uh, all the components of those volunteer battalions later, uh, were, uh, incorporated into the…the military of Ukraine.  Those, uh, Azov, uh, fighters are no longer self-, uh, established, uh, group:  they are a component of the Ukrainian military.  Back in 2014, there was [sic] situations when our volunteers was [sic] encircled and some of them did violate laws.  Uh, laws of Ukraine.  And they actually were taken to court and got, uh, prison sentences.  So law is above all.”

Have you ever known a Jew (like Zelensky) to defend neo-Nazis?

“They are what they are”?!?

“They were defending our country”???

It should be noted that Fox News seems to have eliminated this segment from the main Bret Baier broadcast featuring Zelensky.

It cannot be found within this clip:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=pgxJwmL2_h0

But here it is again (as an isolated clip):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=nBYopwtwQ9U

Indeed, it appears Fox News was trying to cover for Jewish Zelensky’s rather unfortunate (and perhaps inadvertently-candid) defense of the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion:

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/blog/2022/04/02/brett-baier-asks-volodymyr-zelenskyy-about-azov-battalion-reportedly-shooting-pows/

But let’s get back to the video at hand.

Radio Sud.

Bocquet continues:

The Azov Battalion (still very much existing and not, as Zelensky claimed, a thing of the past) were speaking in front of him in English, Russian, and Ukrainian (all languages in which Bocquet has at least some level of comprehension) and, “The joked and laughed that if they came across Jews or blacks, they would skin them.”).

Keep in mind that Zelensky, as commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian military, could (at any time over the past eight years [including now]) BREAK UP the Azov Battalion.

He could disband them.

He could disown them.

They could be deported.

Zelensky could (and should) refuse their services in “defending our country”.

But he doesn’t do this.

And it is quite surprising to me.

Because, as an actor, he should know the EASY, EASY impression this makes upon people across the world.

If a battalion sports Nazi symbols on its patch, it is VERY, VERY bad public relations.

Unless the goal is to tell the world, “We’re neo-Nazis.  Please save us from the awful Russians!”

The most epic and quintessential meme of the war:

IMG_9180

Bocquet says that the Azov members talking about skinning Jews and blacks seemed to view this kind of talk as “a total blast of fun for them”.

Hmmm…

I wonder why?

MAYBE THE FUCKING NAZI PATCH ON THEIR ARM SHOULD HAVE GIVEN THEM AWAY????????

But it gets worse.

It goes beyond talk.

Bocquet says he witnessed (and possesses video evidence of) “…Russian soldiers who had been captured and who were already badly beaten and were tied up. […]  And these Russian soldiers who were captured, they were brought in in little vans, three or four at a time.  Every time they brought [sic] made these soldiers get out of the van, the Ukrainian military, asked them, ‘Who’s the officer?  Who’s the officer?’  […] Every soldier who got out of the van was shot in the knee with a Kalashnikov.  […] while they were defenseless, tied up.  […]  And those who had the misfortune to say, ‘I’m the officer,’ would get shot in the head.”

Bocquet goes on to state that he saw American journalists lying about “Russian” bombardments of certain locations.

Their answer was:  “It’s okay.  It will make great photos.”

These were American journalists who were totally cognizant about the fact that they were deliberately misattributing Ukrainian bombings as “Russian” bombings.

The bombings in question were maladjusted, poorly-calibrated Ukrainian mortars.

So the American media on the ground was lying about most everything.

According to Bocquet.

Keep in mind, he has videos of the Russian soldiers being shot in the knees and heads.

Bocquet correctly states that in urban warfare, two sides (Ukrainian and Russian) shelling each other are BOTH going to hit civilian targets.

But the news coverage has portrayed every civilian target hit as being the result of “Russian bombing”.

That is simply not possible.

Bocquet survived a Russian missile attack on Lvov.

He went to assess the damage (near his hotel).

Of the five missiles fired by the Russians, four hit arms depots.

“…arms depots with weapons from Europe which were stored in Lviv waiting to be brought to Kiev and to the units.”

“…they store them in civilian facilities and in civilian houses, without people even knowing that.”

Bocquet says that, to avoid suspicion, even DHL vans are being used to transport weapons into Ukraine.

So that civilians are not aware that weapons are being stashed near their residences.

Bocquet is correct:

“I call that using the civilian population as human shields.”

Absolutely.

Bocquet was in Bucha.

About Bucha he says,
“…cadavers were left behind on purpose.  Even some bodies were moved for pictures [sic] purposes.”

Bocquet is calling for talk,

“about the war crimes of Ukraine, because those exist.  And all the people who are on the TV sets who say the opposite…”

Bocquet also accurately points out where the Western weapons are going:

“…the weapons we give are mainly to the Azov units.”

Bocquet accurately assesses the true size of the Azov Battalion:

it is not merely 5,000 troops, but at least three or four times that big (when “committed volunteers, plus volunteers from all over the place who come” are added to that number).

15,000-20,000 neo-Nazis.

In that particular battalion.

Which has the complete blessing of Zelensky and the central government in Kiev.

Indeed, Bocquet further adjust his number to claim that the Azov Battalion has AT LEAST 20,000 troops.

Keep in mind that this interview is from at least five weeks ago (no later than May 13, 2022).

Bocquet reiterates that this neo-Nazi battalion (the Azov Battalion), which had (until perhaps two weeks ago) a patch which features not one, but two Nazi symbols, is receiving weapons from Europe and the USA which they then use to commit war crimes.

Of this he has video.

And to be quite clear:

he is talking about 19-year-old Russian soldiers who have surrendered, are tied up and unresponsive, and are being shot twice in the knees and allowed to bleed to death.

Bocquet claims his video documentation of this includes “dozens and dozens of videos”.

How did he get such video?

Well, in addition to being a commando, he was also allowed to ride in automobiles because he is paralyzed.

I am guessing these factors allowed him to position himself in such a way while documenting as to not be noticed.

Bocquet makes a final point.

There are American and French MERCENARIES fighting on the side of Ukraine.

This term is important.

Do mercenaries enjoy all the protections of the Geneva Conventions?

I will let you research and decide that for yourself.

Bocquet reiterates:

these are mostly mercenaries (as opposed to foreign volunteers).

Bocquet was kidnapped and held for ten hours by the Azov Battalion.

They searched everything including his phone.

Bocquet was exfiltrated (by whom?) to Slovakia.

[main candidate:  DGSE]

The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs is aware of what is REALLY happening in Ukraine (as a result of Bocquet’s reportage).

By the way, this Ministry has a new head as of May 20, 2022 (after Bocquet’s interview).

The current officeholder is Catherine Colonna.

From Slovakia, Bocquet was taken to Krakow and then back to France.

As you might imagine, Bocquet is now no longer welcome in Ukraine.

Bocquet’s book title in English is Get Up and Walk.

Has the book been translated into English?

These are the kind of people we need to support.
