Zwei bis fünf mal weniger Tote auf allen Seiten!

25. Februar 2024

Tol­le Nachrichten!

Nach­dem Media­zo­na eine Recher­che basie­rend auf den Todes­an­zei­gen in rus­si­schen Zei­tun­gen ver­öf­fent­licht und die Zahl bis­her ver­stor­be­ner Rus­sen im Ukrai­ne Krieg auf 75.000 geschätzt hat, hat Selen­skyj soeben nach­ge­zo­gen und erst­ma­lig die offi­zi­el­le Zahl mili­tä­ri­scher Opfer in der Ukrai­ne ver­öf­fent­licht: 31.000!

Gut, vor zwei Tagen wur­de auf allen Sei­ten noch von fünf mal mehr Toten gespro­chen, aber jetzt wo Media­zo­na plötz­lich rus­si­sche Tote um den Fak­tor 5 nied­ri­ger ein­schätzt als US Sena­to­ren, sind die ukrai­ni­schen Toten laut Selen­skyj um den Fak­tor 2.3 auf 31.000 gesunken.

Was enorm erstaun­lich ist, denn ein unab­hän­gi­ges ukrai­ni­sches Pro­jekt hat in der Ver­gan­gen­heit bereits 47.000 getö­te­te ukrai­ni­sche Sol­da­ten gelis­tet, deren Vali­di­tät durch Media­zo­na in Zufalls­stich­pro­ben veri­fi­ziert wer­den konnte.

Mer­ke: Als ukrai­ni­scher Prä­si­dent, sprich bereits vor einem Jahr von 99.000 getö­te­ten Rus­sen.

Dann lass vom ukrai­ni­schen Gene­ral­stab im Sep­tem­ber 2023 knapp 120.000 getö­te­te Rus­sen ver­mel­den (bei die­ser Ratio).

Dann stel­le im Febru­ar 2024 fest, dass du 60% drü­ber bist, und kor­ri­gier dann dei­ne EIGNEN Opfer­zah­len auf dem Papier um 34% nach unten - also gegen­über dem was bereits durch open Source Quel­len bestä­tigt wur­de, DIE NICHT MAL HOCHRECHNEN!

(Media­zo­na hat eine Hoch­rech­nung ver­öf­fent­licht. Dh. 50.000 gezählt, und 75.000 hochgerechnet.)

Set­zen wir den Fak­tor (+50%) bei den gezähl­ten getö­te­ten ukrai­ni­schen Sol­da­ten des unab­hän­gi­gen ukrai­ni­schen Por­tals an, kom­men wir auf 70.500 getö­te­te Ukrai­ner (Hoch­rech­nung) von denen Selenk­syj heu­te 31.000 gemel­det hat. Nice.

Sau­ber rech­nen mit dem ukrai­ni­schen Staatsoberhaupt.

Sla­va!

So first off fuck you, second off fuck you and third, fuck you

24. Februar 2024

First off:

Was­ley Clark “I belie­ve this is a war that lasts ano­t­her 6 years, but then the Ukrai­ne can win!”. Fuck you.

Second off:

Mr. I’m Respon­si­ble for the Messaging “We need to tell wes­tern popu­la­ti­ons, that this is about the wes­tern world and wes­tern values to get them on board”. Fuck you

Third off:

Mr. “I’m an entre­pre­neur, and the more I think about this, I think we are going to win this in the long run”. Fuck you. Why? Later.

Fourth off:

Media: “Rus­sia is try­ing to play the long game here - Putin thinks he can win in the long run!” Yeah, nar­ra­ti­ve fits like a glove, dont you think?

Also fuck you.

Becau­se of what “ano­t­her 6 years” means. (Thats basi­cal­ly con­tin­gen­cy plan­ning for ano­t­her fai­led offensive.)

Also fuck you for “I think about the Ukrai­ne war as ending in Taiwan.”

Fuck you espe­cial­ly for that, Was­ley Clark.

To the peop­le that are dumb enough to fall for that - plea­se do.

I scream in ago­ny, each and every day.

(Also word to the rus­si­ans - I’d not plan on the ukrai­ni­an Artil­le­ry capa­bi­li­ty to “cata­stro­phi­cal­ly fail five mon­ths from now”, like that one guy said into the micro­pho­ne on sta­ge - becau­se “he wan­ted to be very open and hel­pful”. Actual­ly, plan for the oppo­si­te being the case.

Just a hunch.)

edit: On second thought - just lis­ten to Was­ley Clark, guys…

Gene­ral thinks you need 500 air­craft, and that a tac­ti­cal nuke is pro­bab­ly likely to be dro­ped on Ukrai­ne in the upco­m­ing 6 years the figh­t­ing will still pro­long - and that you need to toughen up and face this as Ukrai­ne. Becau­se, and I quo­te “You are figh­t­ing the batt­le for wes­tern civi­liz­a­ti­on . We can finish it here.”

Just make that your main messaging towards euro­pean poli­ti­cal lea­ders from now on and see whe­re it takes you..

Also that reli­an­ce on “com­bi­ned tac­ti­cal for­ces” seems like a dis­as­ter in the making - becau­se of new capa­bi­li­ties in the elec­tro­nic war­fa­re space. Dis­rup­t­ing just one class of mili­ta­ry devices seems far more likely to beco­me a fac­tor going for­ward. So to ampli­fy power - sure, but to depend on that struc­tu­ral­ly? Well - I’m total­ly out of my depth here, so -- seems wrong… 😉

edit: John E. Herbst (for­mer (2003-2006) US Ambassa­dor to Ukraine):

The pro­blem we have in the framing of the war in Ukrai­ne is that we frame it as the war in Ukrai­ne, the­re­fo­re it is per­cei­ved espe­cial­ly by peop­le in the United Sta­tes who are not focu­sing on for­eign poli­cy, that this is not an ame­ri­can [wes­tern] pro­blem. If we frame it pre­cise­ly - we have an aggres­si­ve nuclear super power, who has iden­ti­fied the United Sta­tes as is princip­le advers­a­ry if not its enemy, and every day seni­or rus­si­an offi­cials, Narish­kin, Putin, the rus­si­an media Samal­jov [Solo­wjow?], Simon­jan, talk about the nas­ty things they want to do to the United Sta­tes, if we under­stand that this is a pro­blem about con­tai­ning an aggres­si­ve Krem­lin, not a pro­blem of hel­ping the poor Ukrai­ni­ans, the respon­se would be very dif­fe­rent. We need a poli­cy of con­tain­ment of an aggres­si­ve Rus­sia, which is actual­ly going to set the way for a more aggres­si­ve Chi­na. We frame it that way, we can win this fight.

[…]

Wed­nes­day the Atlan­tic coun­cil orga­ni­zed a con­fe­rence advo­ca­ting con­tain­ment of rus­sia, as an ame­ri­can poli­cy. Our lea­ders have to start to point this out every day. The white house has to do this, our lea­ders in euro­pe have to do this. If repe­ti­ti­on is a way to get this accross, we do that - we can chan­ge the deba­te, thank you!”

Yeah, fuck you. For that lie you’­re pan­de­ring, but I’m sure the ger­man news media will be very wil­ling to accom­mo­da­te and fol­low your fever­dreams - and just fuck over the public per­cep­ti­on, like they did for the past two years.

Fuck you for the sug­ges­ti­on to take rus­si­an TV pro­pa­gan­da as the tem­pla­te for reality.

Fuck you.

edit: In more “Wait, what?!” news: Accord­ing to the Cent­re of Eas­tern Stu­dies, Rus­sia blew up the Nova Kachow­ka dam, so the Ukrai­ni­ans “could not bring over Himars to tar­get the Kertsch Bridge from the other side of the river”.

Yeah, about that… yeah…

Wan­na draw lines from Robotyne?

Zum zweiten Jahrestag des Krieges

24. Februar 2024

Drei “Wir wer­den sie­gen” und ein “Ohne rasche Hil­fe “haben wir kei­ne Chan­ce”” von Prä­si­dent Selenskyj.

Stim­mungs­ba­ro­me­ter: 8 von 10 deutsch­spra­chi­gen Jour­na­lis­ten sind begeistert.

Pro­pa­gan­da hat aber wie­der nie­mand entdeckt.

Viel­leicht kann man das mal mit einer Zusam­men­fas­sung der Rede kon­tras­tie­ren die Selen­skyj vor etwa einem Jahr im öster­rei­chi­schen Par­la­ment gehal­ten hat:

30.03.2023, 17:30

Selen­skyj hielt Video­an­spra­che im Parlament
Der ukrai­ni­sche Prä­si­dent Wolo­dym­yr Selen­skyj zeig­te sich über­zeugt: Die Ukrai­ne wird sie­gen und ihre Mensch­lich­keit und Moral bewahren.

Der ukrai­ni­sche Prä­si­dent Wolo­dym­yr Selen­skyj wur­de für eine Rede live ins öster­rei­chi­sche Par­la­ment zuge­schal­tet. Es ist der 400. Tag des Krie­ges. Der Prä­si­dent mach­te beson­ders auf die vie­len zivi­len Opfer in sei­nem Land auf­merk­sam. Selen­skyj bedank­te sich auch für die Unter­stüt­zung durch Österreich.

Der ukrai­ni­sche Prä­si­dent sag­te: Wenn die Ukrai­ne um Hil­fe bit­tet, bit­tet sie um Unter­stüt­zung dafür, Leben ret­ten zu können.

Sein Land woll­te sich nicht in das Leben ande­rer Men­schen ein­mi­schen. Die Ukrai­ne woll­te nie etwas haben, das ihr nicht gehört. Die Ukrai­ne will Sicher­heit und Ruhe, Frei­heit und Glück für ihre Kin­der, in ihrem ukrai­ni­schen Haus.

Selen­skyj sag­te auch: Er ist über­zeugt, dass die Ukrai­ne in die­sem Krieg sie­gen wird. Er ist über­zeugt: Das Land wird sei­ne Mensch­lich­keit, sei­ne Zivi­li­siert­heit und sei­ne Moral bewah­ren. Und sei­nen Glau­ben dar­an, dass das Böse immer ver­lie­ren wird.

The title of hero of Ukraine, and the order of golden star is Herbadl Igor Micholaiowitch the Master Sargent

24. Februar 2024

To see Herbadl Igor Micho­laio­witch you have to fast for­ward trough the spee­ches of Jus­tin Tru­deau, Gior­gia Melo­ni and Ursu­la von der Leyen.

Jus­tin Tru­deau and Gior­gia Melo­ni were zyloning a bit, becau­se the Ukrai­ne bought micro­pho­nes with that faul­ty chi­ne­se chip­set, that is known for causing this audio arti­fact, when they are plug­ged in for more than one hour.

But it doesnt mat­ter, becau­se during von der Ley­ens speech, the Ukrai­ne, sim­ply reboo­ted their ent­i­re audio sys­tem, and after two minu­tes of dead silence, while von der Ley­ens mouth was still moving, the cyloning was gone.

So the speech of Herbadl Igor Micho­laio­witch, hero of Ukrai­ne, could be cap­tu­red in full clarity.

Also - if you dont under­stand what Melo­ni was say­ing, becau­se of the audio arte­fac­ting going on in par­al­lel - just ima­gi­ne, that for her two year anni­ver­s­a­ry, Moma got what she always wan­ted, a new gigan­tuous vacu­um clea­ner, deli­very rea­dy from Hos­tomml Air­port, Ukrai­ne. Which she loved with all her heart.

If you are not so much inte­res­ted in Herbadl Igor Micho­laio­witch, hero of Ukrai­ne - then you could also watch the second press con­fe­rence, held sub­se­quent­ly, indoors:

But then you would miss Herbadl Igor Micho­laio­witch, the hero of Ukrai­ne. And his medal. As well as all the other heroes.

The true, unfil­te­red authen­ti­ci­ty, that can only be expe­ri­en­ced, by watching press mate­ri­al in its ent­i­re­ty on the Euro­pean Com­mis­si­ons you­tube channel.

Grü­ße an Alp­bach, bitte.
