‘Western’ Media Spread Copium To Prolong The War In Ukraine

Tuesday, 5 July 2022 — Moon of Alabama

The war in Ukraine is clearly progressing in Russia’s favor. That is why I am appalled by the incompetent descriptions in ‘western’ media of past and current operations in that war.

As Galileo pursued his experimentation in Italy, it was Francis Bacon who set out a clear theory of inductive procedure – to make experiments, and to draw general conclusions from them, to be tested in further experiments.

No Bullet to Bite

Tuesday, 5 July 2022 — The van says…
