Reseauinternational.net – It would be necessary to oblige each pseudo journalist specializing in Covid, money, finance, economics, geopolitics, diplomacy, in short each stenotypist at the service of the elites to read this text and to make him/her do a written interrogation, with a critical analysis. This quality text exposes a point of view that hurts, but that you must know… you are worth it!
written by a Russian.
We have become the world champions of sanctions, surpassing the former leader Iran. The United States and the European Union have put all their cards on the table, even exploding mines that do more damage to them than to us.
One example is the freezing of dollars and euros from our reserves. We have lost 300 billion dollars, which we will save again in about a year. The US and the EU have lost their reputation because an arbitrary default on the dollar and the euro will automatically trigger the gradual withdrawal of dollars and euros from the reserve currency category.
So-called “paper money” (fiat) is really just a receipt, a promise to deliver goods in the future. Imagine that you bring Sam a cart of manure. Sam gives you a receipt: I, Sam Smith, passport such-and-such, residing there, promise to deliver to Vasily an iPhone 14 in perfect condition. The next day, after shaving, you come to Sam for an iPhone. And Sam tells you – you are Russian, get out of here before I draw a sexual organ on my receipt.
This is what happened to the dollars and euros. The whole village saw that Sam’s receipts were not reliable, since Sam did not keep his word as a merchant.
The Americans and Europeans would not be so affected if the ruble collapsed. They have already frozen the gold reserves of other countries – Iran, Venezuela, Syria. Investors were very annoyed by this because investors are not fooled, but the situation was still different: the amounts were small on a global scale and the financial systems of the attacked countries collapsed in a chain after the American attack. The freezing of the gold reserves of the small unrewarded countries was not seen as a scam, but as aggression, an arbitrary manifestation of force. Investors were ready to accept this.
But the ruble did not collapse after the American attack, on the contrary. Right now, I’m writing this article, and the ruble is trading at about 78 or 80 rubles to the dollar, which is not much higher than October’s 79 rubles to the dollar, and still lower than the peak at which the dollar jumped in the middle of the 2014-2015 Currency Crisis.
In fact, we bought for those stolen 300 billion dollars a unique historical opportunity to create our own reserve currency, the energy ruble. Perhaps it was worth the effort and the punishment.
The Americans, on the other hand, turned out to be the unlucky hunter in the joke, who slipped a double-barreled shotgun into the den. The hunter tried to shoot the sleeping bear and pulled the trigger, but the gun missed and the bear woke up…
Thus, the United States and the EU have already used almost all their financial and economic weapons against Russia. But here the game is not at all in their favor: it is like trying to bite through a car wheel with your teeth. In fact, this is why Western politicians are now fighting so hysterically. Russia is a problem that is destroying their financial system and that they can’t solve.
The main reason why the West has found itself in such an unenviable situation is the natural change in our world.
In the 21st century, the once-powerful West has donned a leather harness and decorated its ass with multi-colored feathers, and the East, led by China, has gradually taken over the industrial and technological leadership of the West.
[ Editor’s Note: This happened because greedy Republicans thought they were so smart that they would take permanent political control of the country via wrecking the union voting block by exporting our manufacturing jobs overseas. It worked, and killing independent media was next by allowing it to be consolidated into the hands of the few where it was easier to control. If you don’t believe this look again at all the MSM coverage of the Ukraine war, and all the others, they are all in lockstep…JD ]
Let’s look at how high-tech exports from different countries have changed over the years:
- 1990: The United States is the leader, Japan is second, and Germany is third. China is not even in the top ten.
- 2009: China is the leader, the U.S. is in second place by a small margin, and Germany and Japan are right behind the U.S. The gap between first and fourth place is small.
- 2019: China’s leader. Germany is in second place, 3.5 (!) times behind. Singapore is third. The United States is in fourth place, behind China by about 5 times. China’s high-tech exports are greater than those of the top ten Western countries combined.
People are very inert, especially adults, so Western politicians are still mentally living in it, in the mid-2000s, when the U.S. and China were fighting on equal terms.
However, 15 years have already passed and the US has fallen behind, they are completely hopeless. They are only kept afloat by the inertia of the dollar, which, before the February default, was a reserve currency in its own right.
Have you heard of Wenzhou? Show it on the map? I am sure you haven’t. Anyway, recently Wenzhou was considered backward, there was even the term “poor Wenzhou”. Nowadays, thanks to the invigorating capitalism, Wenzhou is booming. There are many factories for various industries – for example, the city is a world center for the production of low voltage equipment.
Here’s an hour and a half video for you – just drive a car through the streets of Wenzhou, no need for a parade shot from a quadcopter of newly built skyscrapers or other embellished images for tourists. This is how the most ordinary person sees the city on a daily basis.
Once again, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that, by Chinese standards, Wenzhou is a small city, a backwater, and a regional center of Zhejiang provincial province. 9.5 million people are a trifle by Chinese standards, almost a village.
The Zhejiang clothing company Semir Garment (Semir and Balabala brands, which you don’t know, unlike the Dolce and Gabbana faggots), the shoe company Aima, the household appliance factories General Electric and Schneider Electric (yes, yes, it’s all from there), are based in Wenzhou, as well as the steel mills of the Shagang Group. They even launched the subway three years ago.
And by way of comparison, Brussels, the capital of the NATO butchers.
With all my love for the historic streets of old cities, it is a hopeless province. The United States and the European Union are no longer at the level where they can hope to compete with Asia.
And while we only look at China, there is also India, whose population is almost equal to China’s, and where high technology is now developing at a very high rate.
In the West, it is customary to joke about India in the traditional formats of toilet humor. However, India is big, it has about 5 million programmers alone. And since everything is in order in the well-oiled Indian brain, quantity inevitably turns into quality.
But there is also Indonesia with a population of 280 million. Pakistan – 230 million. Brazil – 210 million … and in every country now there is the Internet, there is access to education, there are opportunities to build factories and laboratories.
The West considers itself “the whole world” only because it has not yet been punched in the nose sensibly enough.
It happens that Russia is now giving it this blow: with the back-up of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. And the West can do absolutely nothing against us since it is also behind us in terms of the number of nuclear warheads.
We don’t have as many nuclear weapons as we did in the Soviet era, but we have enough to send the United States into the Stone Age if necessary. As a result, the U.S. is flailing in a chair, biting its fingernails, shouting expletives… but still not crossing certain borders.
America’s position seems hopeless.
China is preparing to crush the United States economically, and there is little chance of detente, since the West has behaved absolutely beastly toward China over the past few centuries, and since the West clearly will not begin to think about its behavior until it has suffered a full-blown crisis. a full-fledged and devastating defeat.
The West cannot inflict critical damage on China, because to do so requires isolating China from Russia, which is technically impossible – we share a land border with China. We supply China with food and hydrocarbons, which is more than enough for an economic victory over the United States, no matter what blockades the United States undertakes.
There is no way to destroy Russia first, then China – militarily, Russia is too strong,
Perhaps if the Americans had not been so aggressive, if they had not moved the NATO bases to the East, if they had not tirelessly fomented revolutions and civil wars on the territory of the former USSR, their hegemony could have lasted a little longer.
However, living in peace does not concern the Americans. They are stupid, arrogant, and greedy. The United States went to aggravate the conflict with the East and, it seems, they lost.
Remember, I told you that we would become the spearhead of China’s spear directed at the heart of the West? And you wonder why Russia? Well, as you can see, it was not possible to imagine it otherwise: Geography is inevitable.
Putin tried to establish friendship with Europe, he offered them all kinds of options that would have been beneficial to them – but no, it didn’t work. Even the Germans, logical and thoughtful people who calculate everything on a calculator, could not help giving in to the general European Russophobia.
Europe has chosen its fate. And chose the destiny for Russia. What you see now is the death of Europe. Even if it is not a question of nuclear strikes on industrial centers, Europe is doomed.
In a situation where European industry is left without cheap Russian energy sources and raw materials – and China will start receiving these same energy carriers and raw materials at reduced prices, there can be no question of real European competition with China.
As a result, literally, everything will collapse thereafter industry it will be agriculture welfare and social security will collapse, hunger, banditry, and chaos will start. I do not even believe that the transition to Nazism can save these states; the decadence has gone too far, and too many parasites have come to gorge themselves on European profits.
And in everything, the Europeans will blame the Russians. Therefore, they will step on us, get hit in the face, wash with blood – and climb again.
At some stage, things will turn to the vitrification of some European capitals, as well as the sinking of the “island of villains” under the water level in the French Channel. They are stupid, they will not calm down. History teaches that it teaches no one anything.
Nobody cares about Ukraine. Ukraine is just a place, a battlefield where Russia has decided to fight Europe.
They have implemented the concept of “small bloodshed on the foreign territory”. It’s a pity for the elites, but they themselves are to blame – they really wanted to please, to serve the Eurogays, and now they have done it.
By the way, Europe fully accepted the proposed conditions and went to war – now the Czech Republic is shipping about 1000 T-72 and BMP-1 tanks from its stocks to Ukraine. Now they are transported on railway platforms.
By the way, this is not bad for us – we have a chance to destroy most of this load during transportation, the rest will crash and break, and NATO will lose another thousand tanks. That’s what this war is all about.

This text made me become a member here and I wrote a reply. I am German and as this is a US site I need room to explain – 1500 letters was not enough.
This text is way to important to suppress our answers.
I wrote in vain.
Happy Easter and Goodbye.
Necessity is the mother of invention. Europe, with China, is already leading in the EV market for cars. I was just there and can confirm their use of EVs is growing fast. With the Ukraine, EU must advance its move to clean energy and get off the Big Oil diet as a matter of survival. I believe this will happen fast; within 2-4 years. When it does, EU will be the world leader and could surpass China for a brief time as the world leader in EVs. All this is caused by need. Necessity is the mother of invention
I agree 100% with all of it.
Thanks to VT Editors !
What an arrogant nasty article. Good to know Europe is doomed. Lacking empathy and compassion, ignorant about the fact that all EU governments have been hijacked and the ordinary people voted, but it turned out we had no influence whatsoever on Dutch politics. And China? If there is any truth to the matter. Full of Internment camps, people starving of hunger during Lockdowns in their appartments, committing suicide en masse. Which human with any heart sense in their bodies would even want to be friends with such nations. So bring it on. I will stand as long as i can for the sake of my 7 future generations and if necessary walk through death’s door gracefully. And i for one have not forgotten the Boljsevist Communist Revolution with its heinous crimes against humanity, nor the Holodomor in Ukraine, nor the call of a russian jewish communist bolsjevist to rape and kill as many german civilians after WW II. Some up to 100 times, some raped even when dead. Nor the failed terrorist complot of jews to poison water and bread delivered to interned german civilians, intending to kill 6 million, nor Eisenhower’s deathcamps in the Rhinevalley. If in this world it is not recognized that everyone born has a right of existence, then my soul really has not accomplished what i was born into this reality for.
Dutch politics are not european (as a whole) politics.
Regarding China problem … leave it to the Chinese. I am writing wearing $20 chineese made shoes and feeling confortabile in them… I must contact the manufactor and express my satisfaction. I want more! I love the chineese!
In the end you trully sound extremistic with the 7 generation war of attricion. It will not last that long and hatethred will heal and vanish (If not fueled by past terible wounds).
I guy from dying Europe.
P.S. loved the article. Head shot!
Holodomor is Ukie weeping and they want it to be patented for them.
“to rape and kill as many german civilians after WW II. Some up to 100 times, some raped even when dead” – omg… Do you believe in what you text here?
It is all so very sad. Is this the Great Reset? How many people must die? How many more go homeless? Is this how it all ends, not with a bang, but a whimper?
Its really a shame that articles like this one never reach the masses, it certainly rips the mask of the real intentions of the evil Western empire. I especially like the part about the Western armaments being setup for destruction, just a great read!
A few years ago, talking to a friend of mine who works in the agricultural sector here in Sicily, he stated that the Chinese and Russians were willing to invest billions upon billions of Euros on the island. However, there was a country, not even on the European continent, that was blocking every possible Russian and Chinese investment in loco. The fact is that Sicily, by far, is the most strategic island in all of the Mediterranean. Throughout recorded history, whoever controls Sicily, has controlled the world. Nonetheless, ever since Operation Husky in 1943, Sicily has been a de facto US overseas possession. After the war, it is also a fact that the US even demanded it be ceded as war reparations from the Italian government. In the 2000s, Russian oil giant Lukoil, bought out the former Italian ERG oil refinery in my province of Syracuse. Lukoil was opening petrol stations everywhere on the island and creating jobs, but then just a few months before hostilities commenced, pressure was being applied by “some powers” to force Lukoil to sell its activities in Sicily. Well, nobody was interested with the possible exception of the Norwegian STATOIL company. At this point, they’ll probably convert the refinery as an LGBT or migrant resort on the Ionian sea. The entire EU political establishment needs to hang in public squares, imho.
I’d rather agree with the article. And we have many such articles in Russia. It was funny to read in Russian in auto-translation. About the faggots from Dolce and Gabbana and the Eurogays – it was strongly said 😂
Every domestic cat in Russia perfectly understands and sees how the collective West is likened to an impudent cowboy in a crowd of people who accidentally shot himself in the leg and blames others for everything, jumping on one surviving leg and trying to kick everyone’s ass.
Holy Shit. Someone was actually able to lay this all out in one article. I would have lost a bet that such was possible.
Very dear Jim – I’m reporting from Germany and I’m missing only one essential aspect in this Russian view = the 600kg gorilla in the middle of the room.
Both the USA and its vassals in Western Europe are ALL under control of the Khazarian Mafia and the military-industrial complex of the USA in the possession of Blackrock & Co. The EU is controlled by more than 290 Soros NGOs. The peoples of the West have been brainwashed for more than 3 generations by Khazarian media – just like the Russian peoples under Bolshevism – only with opposite enemy stereotypes. On both sides people do not see how the world is, but what the respective narrative of the ruling power looks like. If the Khazarian claim of exclusive world domination were eliminated in a worldwide joint effort (the collapse of the dollar could be the starting shot), the world would be much more peaceful than it is today. And a word to Germany: Since 1945 no single decision was made in Germany from the will of the German people – the country is occupation zone and “enemy state” according to UNO for 77 years. Russia, as the chair of the occupying control council, could have considerably more influence on German policy. I assume that at least 50% of Germans – including myself – cherish a hope that a free Germany could live a friendly neighborhood with Russia.
That’s one way to look at it.
All we in the West can do is hope and pray our leaders have a secret plan; “operation pull a rabbit out of hat.”
No chance as energy is the cornerstone of modern civilization. Shipped LNG is physically not possible and if it were possible it is far more expensive than piped gas – energy costs across much of Europe will now be on a permanently high plateau. Building new nuclear power stations would take a long time even if they were approved.
Can you imagine if Ukraine had a lot of LNG facilities, the video we would have of the explosions. The war grifters would move in to rebuild it with borrowed money that will never be paid back.
Let that secret plan be them drinking hemlock.
I fully agree with article prognosis. Indeed even everything will collapse in Europe now there is a new ingredient that will avoid any possibility of a resurgence unlike in the past and this is present society’s moral and cultural collapse of Europe in which they have fallen.
Even the ‘smart’ Germans, some of them understand that the gas sanctions are a bullet in the head. And yet you hardly reas a word of any of this is Western media as it does not allow competition of views with people like those who wrote this. They are scared shitless their people figuring this alll out, that they are rulle by a baffoon class, drunk from their grifting.
Globalisation and its destructive bedfellow neoclassical economics has killed the ability of politicians and their observers to think outside the box and understand alternatives.
I mean advisers.
