Lyubov Stepushova in Kiev needs a small but victorious war in the Azov The Ukrainian agenda has left the world media, which means that this topic does not interest the Western establishment.

On Intimidation, Cowardice & Corruption (at the International Criminal Court) “Drill and uniforms impose an architecture on the crowd. An army’s beautiful.

Looking at mechanized slaves, one fancies oneself a master” -Aldous Huxley The United Nations is an experiment in democracy founded on the Western principles of international law. Angela Merkel’s conflating globalism with multilateralism (these are NOT the same thing) notwithstanding, the United Nations is a global body established by multilateral treaties.
