First of all, I agree with the guys at The Duran that the Op-Ed article at The Economist has all the earmarks of a Nuland screed—more on that below. To be honest, when I first read it, I wasn’t sure whether it was intended seriously or simply as part of a blame shifting scheme. The idea would be to present a totally out of touch Plan B, then when it didn’t work shift the blame to the Ukies and Euros, claiming they screwed up the implementation, or never really tried it. That would fit in with what we’ve been told about the Spring-Summer-Fall and now Winter offensive—the Ukies are to blame for the abject failure of an offensive that was doomed from the start. Because they didn’t follow NATO’s directives—directives that played totally into the hands of Russia’s ready and waiting defenses.
Russia has it all over the West as far as humor & satire. Hopefully most MIH readers will be able to view the Twitter/X satirical vid that got DHS' drawers in a twist:

Nuland’s call for foreign investment has been answered! The Clinton Global Initiative has announced its intention to go into Ukraine. Of course, the CGI is less an investment organization than a pillage and asset stripping entity (see Haiti for example).
Until Putin shows that Russia can actually escalate (not just threaten), and can actually attack and capture territory, expect much more of this.
‘ The sheer evil that the Neocons have perpetrated in Ukraine should shame all decent Americans’.
Absolutely. ‘Let’s you and him fight’ wars are cowardly and shameful, unsurprisingly favored by psychopaths like Romney. Maybe a more appropriate word is ‘disgusting’. Were I ukrainian, I would never forget this.
Extrapolations like this are a result of Deep state / MSM inbreeding.

Wish I had something profound and insightful to add, but this whole shitstorm is beyond belief. I keep asking myself “how the f**k did these imbeciles gain control?”
It's perplexing how the West talks as if the Russians are some inert opponent. Like "We'll just freeze the conflict" or, now, "We'll just go on the defensive and launch missiles at Crimea." ????? The Russians, my uninformed guess, will someday pop a hole somewhere in the long line and it will be a ROUT. An Operation Cobra-type situation, back to maneuver warfare, where battalions/brigades of AFU will be rolled up in pockets and surrendering en masse. Anyway, for sure the Russians won't just sit and take it.
It's hard to know where to even begin with this level of delusional insanity. For people this estranged from reality, it's not a big step to thinking that a "limited" nuclear exchange is winnable. They not only have zero understanding of current realities, but have absolutely no sense of historical lessons either. Boning up on the battle of Kursk would have given themselves a shuddering sense of perspective: there too the Russians had built up defensive positions of immense density and strength. Even so, the Germans made significant penetrations before being halted. In the current offensive, the Ukrainians haven't even reached the Russian frontlines. As with the domestic situation in the US and here in the West, this can only be stopped by the other parties taking decisive action. The lower and middle echelons of the Ukrainian army have to call it quits, and ordinary Europeans and Americans have to kick out the maniacs who rule them. Before it is too late!
This has the Kagan clan all over it. They seem like their understanding is gained from playing Risk as kids. They think they are clever.....haha
How is it that the Secretary of State has been delegated the power to declare war? Who delegated it to him? Why doesn’t Congress challenge that delegation?
The NATO-trained Ukies were taught urban warfare and even they decried these tactics over a year ago. Now, witness the armor dropping off troops and told, "Run for it! That front line is only 2.5 miles off across the open fields."
A recipe for failure could not have been better planned.
