In 2022 two issues will come to a head: One is whether Western peoples can fight off the effort to destroy their civil liberty behind a smokescreen of an orchestrated “Covid pandemic.” If not, they will become residents of police states.
The other is whether the West has the intelligence to accommodate Russia’s legitimate security concerns. If not, at the least American power will be broken and at worse life in the Western world will end in nuclear war.

“To commit provocations in the cities of Avdiivka and Krasny, Liman Tanks with unidentified chemical components have been delivered,” Shoigu said at an expanded meeting of the Defense Ministry board with the participation of President Vladimir Putin .
According to the ministry, about 120 representatives of American PMCs who train Ukrainian special forces arrived in the region.

The global military political situation is deteriorating, and tension is growing on Russia’s western and eastern borders. The United States is increasing its forward-based on Russia’s borders: a total of some 8,000 US rotation troops have been stationed in East European countries.
Infrastructure for the deployment of a USis being created in Poland. The Aegis Ashore anti-missile capability will become operational soon. A similar BMD facility in Romania has already been put on combat duty.
The deployment of the Pacific segment of the global US BMD system is ongoing. A Joint Force Command of the Allied Command Operations (ACO) has been established in Norfolk to control maritime communications in the North Atlantic and the Arctic.
The military development of Ukraine’s territory by NATO countries is underway. The situation is being further aggravated by the deliveries of US and allied helicopters, unmanned combat aerial vehicles and guided anti-tank missiles. The presence of over 120 members of US private military companies in Avdeyevka and Priazovskoye, Donetsk Region, has been proved reliably.
Vladimir Putin: On an informal note, I would like to add a few words to what Minister Shoigu said and what I said in my opening remarks.
What was the American pretext to bomb Yugoslavia? Was it authorised by the Security Council, or what? Where is Yugoslavia and where is the United States? The Americans destroyed the country. Indeed, Yugoslavia had an internal conflict, they had their own problems, but who gave the Americans the right to conduct airstrikes against a European capital? No one did. They just chose to do so, and their NATO satellites were running behind them yelping along. So much for international law.
PCR comments: NATO officials have thumbed their noses at Putin’s concern with Russia’s security. Trump’s National Security Advisor and neocon warmonger John encourages more provocation of Russia, which as Putin has made clear will result in war.
Clearly as 2021 comes to an end, there is no intelligence to be found anywhere in the Western World as all vie to show how tough they are with Russia.
What if Washington’s concern is limited to destabilizing Russia in the interest of US hegemony and Russia’s security is precisely what Washington intends to undermine, not secure.
2022 could be the year that Washington’s power is broken, with Russia taking Ukraine in an act of self-protection and China taking Taiwan as a demonstration of who is boss in Asia.
2022 could also be the year the Western world comes to an end in nuclear war.
Back in March of 2020, when the coronavirus fearmongering from politicians and big money media was taking off, an outbreak of coronavirus and several deaths on the Diamond Princess cruise ship was among the examples used to stir up dread of coronavirus among the American populace.
However, people who looked critically at the Diamond Princess situation realized that it suggested coronavirus did not pose an especially great threat.
Among those more levelheaded individuals was John P.A. Ioannidis, a Stanford University professor of medicine and professor ofand population health.
Looking at the infection and article that the coronavirus case fatalityrate in the general population would be no greater than the one percent case fatality rate on the cruise ship and would most likely be much lower, noting that the Diamond Princess had “a largely elderly population, in which the death rate from Covid-19 is much higher.”numbers from the Diamond Princess, Ioannidis concluded in a March 17, 2020 Stat News
Ioannidis got it right.
But that did not stop government from shutting down much of the American economy and violating freedom Americans had long assumed secure, all in the name of countering the hyped coronavirus threat.
Just as the Diamond Princess cruise ship coronavirus outbreak helped expose early on the preposterousness of the fearmongering regarding coronavirus, now outbreaks of coronavirus on are helping expose the preposterousness of claims that the experimental coronavirus vaccine shots are effective.
Meryl Kornfield wrote Saturday at the Washington Post regarding the situation of coronavirus outbreaks on cruise ships whose crews and passengers are required to have taken the shots:
At least six sailings on Royal Caribbean, the devastated industry and alarmed .America, Carnival and others last week were altered by coronavirus outbreaks as cruise ships prepared for pre-pandemic levels before sailings were paused. Although vessels that have resumed cruising have beefed up coronavirus precautions — requiring vaccinations and testing passengers — the wave of new infections, fueled by the quickly proliferating omicron variant, has knocked
The US is putting pressure on China and Russia on all fronts, and the two must continue to deepen strategic cooperation on all fronts, Beijing’s ambassador to Moscow declared on Thursday.
Speaking to newspaper Izvestia, Zhang Hanhui said that working together was essential to counter US and Western pressure.
“The US, along with its Western allies, is putting pressure on China and Russia on all fronts: political, economic, military, humanitarian, security, science, and technology,” he said. “In response to such overt hegemony and power politics, we must continue to deepen back-to-back strategic cooperation.”
In addition, the diplomat stressed, Western countries were exercising “extraterritorial jurisdiction” and arbitrarily applying sanctions on the two nations’ government agencies, enterprises, and personnel in an attempt to stifle their development.
On December 15, during a video conference with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin described their relations as a true model of cooperation in the 21st century. In recent years, as both countries have become more adversarial with the US, the two leaders have become closer, with Xi even once referring to Putin as his “best friend.”
Earlier this month, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Beijing fully intended to maintain mutually beneficial relations with Moscow.
China is raising the pressure and again threatening the US not to interfere with their actions related to Taiwan.
In a Thursday interview with China’s state-run CCTV and the official press agency Xinhua, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the U.S. would face “an unbearable cost” for allegedly condoning and abetting “Taiwan independence” forces.
Wang said the U.S. has “gone back on its commitment made when it established diplomatic relations with China, condoned and abetted ‘Taiwan independence’ forces, and tried to distort and hollow out the one-China principle.”
Wang did not specify what costs China would attempt to impose against the U.S.
According to Xinhua, Wang said “the reunification of China is an unstoppable trend” and Taiwan has no choice but to accept those reunification efforts.
