The First Casualty, Dying a Thousand Deaths

“In war, truth is the first casualty.” – Aeschylus

I don’t know what to make of this...

The Ukrainian authorities in Kiev have embezzled “$400 million last year, at least,” of U.S. taxpayers money, according to veteran American journalist, Seymour Hersh, who recently grabbed headlines for his long-read article describing how it was the government of the United States that blew up the Nord Stream pipeline.

The article also alleges Ukraine officials skimming US aid by clandestine fuel purchases and arms trafficking. Sounds plausible, but I’d like to see some evidence beyond “unnamed sources.”

I also don’t know who blew up the Nordstream pipeline or why. I have read that it was not done by some ragtag operation. To be able to pull that off with no fingerprints and no attribution requires some serious planning and flawless execution.

Another year, another uniformed traitor following in the footsteps of Private Manning and Airman Winner…

It’s a strange story, a 21 year old Airman posting classified info on a gaming server to impress his middle school gamer buddies, but I don’t think there will be any more to it than that. We are a society increasingly believing in nothing more than whatever the flavor of the day is…

War Porn

1945 provides a constant stream of war porn, and its all bad for Russia. 1945 says Russia is running out of troops. I don’t know if that’s true, but other sources say Ukraine is running out of troops, in addition to needing more munitions and materiel.

Everyone agrees that Russia’s Chechnya-style campaign of relentless and remorseless destruction is flattening Ukraine and has crippled over 60% of its critical infrastructure. BlackRock and other well-connected vampires will be there to rake up the billion$ in US taxpayer money.

What say you?
