Why does the US dare to fight Russia in Ukraine?…
If the #US and #Germany deliver their tanks ammunitions with depleted uranium (DU), #Russia will consider it as a "dirty bomb" and will react accordingly.
The 120mm L5 smoothbore gun on the #German #Leopard2 conforms to the NATO Stanag 4385 standard, as does the F1 gun on the French Leclerc and the M256 on the #US M1 Abrams.
The US M829-series and French OFL F2 APFSDS rounds use a DU penetrator, while the German DM53’s are tungsten

Russo-Ukrainian War: The World Blood Pump

Gradually, and then Suddenly

by @witte_sergei

#NATORussiawar #Ukraine
Since #Russia’s surprise decision to voluntarily withdraw from west bank #Kherson in the first week of November, there has been little in the way of dramatic changes to the frontlines in #Ukraine.

In part, this reflects the predictable late autumn weather in Eastern Europe, which leaves battlefields waterlogged and clogged with mud and greatly inhibits mobility.

(1/23) This thread is mainly addressed to my #German followers, but it could also be interesting for those who always wanted to know how Germany could become the most culturally leftist country on the European continent. Accordingly, this thread is a #political #commentary by me.
(2/23) It is about the historical personality of the first post-war chancellor, Konrad Adeneauer. I also would like to finally dispel a myth that still plagues German conservatives, by which I do not mean recationaries, but all those who do not want to destroy their own country.
(3/23) This myth is the myth of the "good old", #50s and #60s, #CDU (Christian Democratic Party) and the question of what role a post-war #Germany could have played if #Adenauer and his party had not made completely wrong decisions about essential political directions.

In the 70s dictator Eyadema of #Togo, soldier of the #French colonial army appointed a minister of education called Sylvain Babelem. Babelem was removed, later arrested and charged with corruption for one thing. He defied Eyadema’s bosses: the French government.
During a ceremony held by the French embassy to donate school books to #Togo , Minister Babelem who use to be teacher denounced the fact #France was donating books they’ve removed from the French curriculum to #Togo especially the fact that these books embellished colonialism.
The #French delegation was not pleased with the #Togolese minister questioning their act of “charity” and called his boss dictator Eyadema to complain. Babelem was removed as minister of education of #Togo and that was just the beginning of his ordeals with the neocolonial regime

France has the 4th largest gold reserve in the world. How?
France holds 90% of the gold reserves of 15 African countries and pays 0% interest on what it makes from those reserves since 1945. These nations however borrow from #France from their own reserves with interest!
When #France created the CFA which was inspired by the monetary system the Nazi imposed on #France during WW2, the FCFA parity was at 50 to one French Franc. On 12 January 1994 #France had the IMF devalue it by 50%: we woke up twice poorer and indebted to #France!
The arguments some are giving to justify the cruelty of the #French colonial empire in #Africa are laughable. Stating that our gold reserves are safer in #France: what a joke!
What do you call safety when the French government assassinate our presidents who ask for our gold back?

Since #WWII, #USA has used #USdollar hegemony to transfer domestic crises, harvest world #wealth and undermine the economic and financial stability of other countries through armed conflicts, financial wars, and trade wars. To maintain US dollar is to maintain US world hegemony. Since #WWII, #USA has used ...
Since March 2022, #FederalReserve has raised interest rates 6X. On 2 Nov, its 75-point rate hike and sharp #USdollar appreciation caused global #currency depreciation, capital outflows, rising debt servicing costs, hiked imported inflation and currency/debt crises of countries.
How this #KhazarianMafia #SCAM all started: At the latter part of #WWII, #USA took the opportunity to hoard tons of #gold and led the establishment of Bretton Woods system based on a peg between #USdollar and gold, thus establishing US dollar as "global hard #currency".

Major Dutch weekly @ewmagazinenl published a very important interview with @BernardAccoyer yesterday, highlighting the #French antinuclear establishment.

Yes, France is ruled by the antinuclear lobby!

I decided to post a translation of the article, here:…
Half of the French nuclear power stations are offline. That is unprecedented. According to Bernard Accoyer (77), former president of the French House of Representatives, this is mainly due to green ideologues. Image
He formulates calmly and in a professorial manner, but does not shy from strong statements. Because the matter is extremely serious, believes Bernard Accoyer, who was chairman of the Assemblee Nationale, the French House of Representatives, between 2007 and 2021.
