Leopards vs. the Russian Bear

ALERT MEMORANDUM FOR: The President

SUBJECT: Leopards vs. the Russian Bear
Decisions in an Intelligence Vacuum
Dear President Biden:
We are aware that the just-reported decision to send Abrams tanks to Ukraine responds to Berlin’s coy insistence that „you go first.“ Now Leopard tanks from Germany and other allies will also be sent. Trouble is that those few that make it into Ukraine will be late to the party.
What your advisers should have told you is that none of the newly promised weaponry will stop Russia from defeating what’s left of the Ukrainian army. If you have been told otherwise, replace your intelligence and military advisers with competent professionals – the sooner the better.

German foreign minister: ‘We are fighting a war against Russia’

Germany’s Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock says „we are fighting a war against Russia“, addressing the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe on January 24, 2023
The government of Germany has stated that Europe is at war with Russia.
“We are fighting a war against Russia”, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock declared, as she addressed the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, France on January 24.
Baerbock insisted that Europe must remain united behind the proxy war in Ukraine, because if it is divided, “then Russia and Putin wins”.
“Yes, we have to do more to defend Ukraine. Yes, we have to do more also on tanks. But the most important and the crucial part is that we do it together, and that we do not do the blame game in Europe, because we are fighting a war against Russia, and not against each other”, the German foreign minister said.
“Obviously, Ukraine needs more military military support, but not only by one country like mine or the US, by all of us. We can fight this war only together”, she added.

Responding to a Limited Russian Attack on NATO During the Ukraine War
By Bryan Frederick, Samuel Charap, Karl P. Mueller
Although U.S. and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) planners have long focused on preparing for the contingency of a large-scale conflict with Russia, the Ukraine war has created a unique set of circumstances that make a more limited Russian attack plausible. This Perspective outlines the characteristics of the potential Russian attack that are relevant to informing a U.S. or NATO response, including Moscow’s possible motivations for launching the attack, what the United States could try to accomplish in its response, and how different types of U.S. or NATO responses might help to advance U.S. goals in the conflict.
Using four hypothetical limited Russian attack scenarios, the authors explore how variations across two dimensions of a U.S. or NATO response — the proportionality of a possible kinetic response and the nature of non-kinetic responses — could lead to trade-offs in the pursuit of different U.S. goals. From this analysis, the authors identify key considerations to assist U.S. policymakers weighing how to address various contingencies.

Mexico Becomes First Nation to Admit Harms of Geoengineering, Halts Future Experiments
By Derrick Broze
January 26, 2023
The Mexican government has announced a moratorium on solar geoengineering experiments following an unauthorized small scale experiment by a U.S. startup. How will the decision impact the plans of globalists who aim to use geoengineering as a gateway to world governance?
Only weeks ago, Luke Iseman, the CEO of Make Sunsets, the company behind the experiment, announced to the world that he had released two weather balloons filled with reflective sulfur particles as part of publicity stunt meant to spark conversation around the science of geoengineering.
Geoengineering is a controversial science of manipulating the climate for the stated purpose of fighting man-made climate change. There are several types of geoengineering, including Solar Radiation Management (SRM) or solar geoengineering. Stratospheric aerosol injection, or SAI, is a specific solar geoengineering practice which involves spraying aerosols into the sky in an attempt to deflect the Sun’s rays. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy is currently developing a five-year research plan on solar geoengineering.
