Pepe Escobar for The Saker Blog Picture yourself about to meet a girl with kaleidoscope eyes… No. Sorry. Actually picture merry lines of code in the R programming language – wallowing in a happy valley of game theory models which would not preclude Goth or New Romantic Walkyrie dancin’ to the 12-inch version of Bauhaus’s Bela Lugosi is Dead.

I think that the shakedown may have had negative effects on the yankee regime since it was likely Ukrainian hackers in charge of the pipeline ransom which has significantly weakened the yankee regime. I could also understand if Russian expertise were to be covertly donated.

I am more inclined to suspect this may be yet another home-grown act, this time by those behind the Great Reset to push us faster towards The Great Reset. Before blaming “the usual suspects” it might be wise to remember that 3 Saudi patsies who never learned how to fly big jets didn’t cause 3 towers to implode into their own footprint, or fly a jet into the pentagon in a maneuver so complex even experts can’t figure out how it was done – if it actually happened.

I am more inclined to suspect home-grown cyber-criminals + college drop-outs living in moms basement [No State Actors what so ever!] they simply exploited the usual shitty rotten decaying AmeriCunt Infrastructure because they cut corners + costs in every aspects for decades invest next to nothing, they probably run their antiquated IT hardware at best with WinXP and the usual costsaving incompetence on cyber-security like at SolarWinds but blaming the pesky Russians Chinese or the Easter Bunny as scapegoats when the shit explodes in their face.

You only have to look at the FBI pictures of the Pentagon following the crash of the “airplane”. The hole is as round as a cent piece. In plain terms that was a missile not an aircraft.

Or the alleged crash site in Pennsylvania some torched trenches in the ground with a lot of tiny scrap metal stagged around it, like on a shitty Hollycrap movie set….BUT the wrecked engines and landing gear nowhere to find…are you fucking kidding me?….specially those components are really durable and never turn in to small tiny pieces…All Total BS.

I’m personally inclined to assume it was the work of both, a UA/US alliance in hackerdom. After all, we wouldn’t want a native US hacker to make another reset/overload faux pas. No, it must have some fluent Russian speakers tending the bytes. Lends to an air of credibility for those who in reality have none.

Remember that one about Operation Podkova/Podkovica, a horseshoe ethnic cleansing exercise in Croatian dialect and attributed to the Serbs?

Lucky that the MSM was in full propaganda/purge mode even back then.

I’m surprised CNN didn’t accuse Assad of ethnically-cleansing ISIS. Guess that would’ve been a step too far but with CNN, one never knows.

As ever, Mercouris and Christoforou never mention the Jews. Surprise, surprise.

can’t say I blame them. They don’t want to be forced off the air. That’s what we are here for, to talk about the Hollycaust, the Big Bug they invented for us that kills mostly obese people of color, those little chips that they are forcing us to be injected with, Emperor Billy Goats and his Courtiers, our great health care system in which only those who have never gone to medical school are allowed to make medical decisions, we can cheer on (and pay for) genocide committed in self-defense, and so on.

Actually, they are not oligarchs. They are carpetbaggers.
