It has become exceedingly clear that there will be war in Ukraine. In fact, some would argue that the war has already begun. On Wednesday evening, widespread artillery bombardment of Donetsk and Luhansk started, and it hasn’t stopped since. It is being called “the most intense artillery bombardment for years”, and it should be making front-page headlines all over the globe. According to one diplomatic source, “everyone and everything” is being targeted…
A diplomatic source with years of experience of the conflict described Friday’s shelling in east Ukraine as the most intense since major combat there ended with a 2015 ceasefire. “They are shooting – everyone and everything,” said the source.
It is also being reported that mobile phone service is down throughout Donetsk and Luhansk.
Needless to say, a communications disruption often occurs just before an invasion.
Of course all of this is happening as accusations of “false flag attacks” continue to fly back and forth.
When the vehicle of a top separatist leader exploded in Donetsk, western media sources immediately labeled it as a “false flag operation” by the Russians, while the Russians immediately blamed pro-Ukrainian forces…
An explosion has rocked the pro-Russian separatist capital Donetsk in eastern Ukraine in what appears to be the start of Putin’s long-awaited false flag operation. A Russian invasion of the country is expected to follow.
Russian media claim the explosion was a car bomb which was intended to assassinate a top Russian separatist official – who was unhurt – and it came hours after Putin’s allies in the breakaway regions announced they would evacuate 700,000 civilians over fears of an attack by Kiev.
And just a day after U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned that the Russians could launch a “false flag” attack using chemical weapons, the Russians were claiming that an attack on chlorine tanks was foiled by separatist forces…
Earlier in the day, rebel forces claimed to have thwarted a ‘sabotage’ attack earlier in the day by Ukrainian forces, including Polish nationals, on chlorine tanks. The US had warned just the day before that rebels might stage a faked chemical weapons attack.
It certainly appears that somebody out there is trying really hard to create a pretext for war.
As the shelling continues hour after hour, leaders in Donetsk and Luhansk have decided to evacuate large numbers of their own citizens to Russia…
Ukrainian forces and the pro-Russian separatists they’re fighting in the country’s east reported a second day of increased shelling on Friday, as the leaders of the rebels’ self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics accused the Ukrainian government of planning an imminent attack. The rebel administrations in the two breakaway regions announced plans to evacuate thousands of civilians into neighboring Russia.
In fact, Donetsk alone plans to evacuate up to 700,000 civilians to Russian territory.
The only reason why you would do such a thing is if you believe that a full-scale war is imminent.
And we have also just learned that Vladimir Putin has decided to call up his military reserves…
Putin signed a decree to mobilise his reserve last night as more than half his army is committed to Ukraine and the west has warned thousands will die if he unleashes a planned bloodbath.
This is beyond serious.
War is in the air, and the Wall Street Journal is reporting that U.S. officials expect a Russian invasion “in the next few days”…
U.S. officials say they expect a Russian attack on Ukraine in the next few days that could involve a broad combination of jet fighters, tanks, ballistic missiles and cyberattacks, with the ultimate intention of rendering the country’s leadership powerless.
These officials said prospects for averting war now appear very dim, while adding that the Biden administration will continue to try to keep open the window for diplomacy.
Needless to say, other such predictions by U.S. officials have not exactly been accurate…
“However, US officials caution they do not know if Putin has made a final decision to invade and note he may delay action or not order it at all,” CNN notes. And importantly, “Earlier assessments forecasting military action by Russia this week did not bear out.”
But what we do know is that Donetsk and Luhansk are being relentlessly pummeled by Ukrainian forces right now.
Just a little while ago, we learned that there has been “a massive gas pipeline explosion” near the city of Luhansk itself…
In the overnight hours local time a massive gas pipeline explosion is being reported, with a fire raging at the site. Early unconfirmed reports suggest the powerful explosion rocked a part of the pipeline in the pro-Russian separatist region, in or near the city of Luhansk.
And there are numerous reports that Ukrainian ground forces have now engaged separatist ground forces at various points along the front.
If the Ukrainians begin taking large chunks of territory from the separatists, I think that the Russians are going to feel compelled to act.
And once the Russians intervene, Joe Biden and other western leaders will finally have the “Russian invasion” that they have been relentlessly warning us about.
On Friday, Biden insisted that the Russians are about to make a major move…
In a televised speech today, Biden said: “We have reason to believe the Russian forces are planning to and intend to attack Ukraine in the coming week, in the coming days.
Joe Biden sure seems quite confident that war is coming.
Of course Biden is not exactly all there mentally or physically these days.
It takes a strong president to keep the national security apparatus and the military industrial complex at bay.
And Biden is definitely not a strong president.
Now our warmongers are about to get what they want, and soon we will cross a line that will make it impossible to have peace with Russia.
We do not want to be in a perpetual state of war with Russia, because it will likely end in the sort of horrifying conflict that I have been warning about for years.
But most Americans do not understand what is at stake.
Most Americans just assume that our leaders are competent and that everything will work out okay somehow.
Sadly, everything is not going to be okay, and our world is about to be plunged into a nightmarish conflict that will not have any winners.

A red beast hates and consumes the great harlot with fire in a single hour.
Then, a white horse.
Hoppie prophecy says America will be turned to ash.This could be it
Not so fast Mikey
Pestilence hasn’t made the first pole and you’re wanting to cue up the red horse already.
This ain’t the triple crown son.
It seems like a civil war inside the Ukraine and we are in a stupid proxy war again where we have no interests. The seperatists are now emboldened with Russia on the east border and also is Ukraine with Nato troops on the other side of the border. IF Biden would say there is no interest in Ukraine joining NATO and we all went home, this would end.
Woogie – you are exactly right. The fact of the matter is Ukraine will never be in NATO, and the US neo-cons know it, but they keep that narrative going because they want war. If we had an honest gov’t that wasn’t thoroughly compromised, they would admit it, drop the sham insistence, and the situation would quickly and easily diffuse. Just as we would not accept Soviet missiles at our doorstep in Cuba, why should we expect them to accept a heavy NATO militarized Ukraine on theirs. But the gov’t and MSM won’t mention that. The truth is the neo-cons couldn’t care less about the Ukrainian people, and fortunately they are beginning to see that. The neo-cons are fomenters of all the trouble there. They helped remove a democratically elected Ukrainian gov’t in 2014 and put people who are hostile to Russia in power. That they created this huge mess isn’t because of legitimate political reasons or security reasons or in the interests of our allies, it was formulated behind closed doors and based on the personal desires, goals, philosophy, and ideology of the neo-cons, and then labeled as and elevated to American foreign policy. The neo-cons are driven by their personal animosity towards Russia, beyond everything rational, and I pray they don’t succeed in starting something that drags all of us into a maelstrom.
There is a bigger picture here: Russia needed to be brought into the fight so that, in time, they would discover, as the Ukrainians have done, their white European exceptionalism and see their historic mission: to be the saviour of European civilisation in face of the Islamic and African invasions. We live in historic times and epochs will happen in months rather than decades. Europeans need to learn how to fight, as Americans have done.
The Red Horse is not to be feared.
But its rider is and he rode forth long ago.
His name is Mohamed.
Read the prophecies and see if it doesn’t fit keeping in mind that the time scale of the Bible is one of events that will occur and the effects they will have, not one of simple consecutive years.
This is NOT about what is being said it is. This is about the NWO gaining more ground.
That “IS” what is happening here. The NWO is/has been making its play now and they are willing to go to a nuke war,
Are YOU ready for that or are you ready to stand up and remove them?
LOL, I bet most don’t have the guts to do what needs to be done and soon you’ll see just how BAD things can really get.
You are a fucking idiot.
Says the real idiot looking in the mirror (every day)
The propaganda is constant. The US war machine and it’s minions are pushing Russian invasion.
Vladimir is not so stupid. He is evacuating hundreds of thousands of civilians from Donbas. Spetsnaz is already in there. There will be no official military invasion. Just unofficial pushback against the Azov battalion, backed by the west’s “advisors”, who are breaking the Minsk Treaty. If the bear wanted to take down Ukraine he would just turn the gas valve to the right and the country would collapse. No invasion…it would be over immediately. The west would have to make up some more false stories to get the war they want.
Putin just wants to protect the Russian speaking minorities in the east from genocide pushed covertly by the west to goad them into war.
Most notably Russia has made no air power preparations for an invasion. Such a buildup that could not be missed.
Ukraine is not Gerogia. Ukraine is a big country.
The weeks-long Russian shock and awe campaign in Syria that preceded the destruction of the Islamic State, would likewise herald any Russian invasion into Ukraine.
TPTB in the US are literally in a frenzy to have war with Russia. We have not been existentially threatened, our country or our assets have not been attacked, Russia is not gearing up and making ready to conduct a major offensive war against us or NATO, they are not goading other nations to attack against us, nothing has happened at all to serve as a catalyst for WW III.
Why wasn’t the TPTB worked up into a deranged foam when Ukraine was actually part of the USSR. It is because Russia and Ukraine were controlled by Bolshevik communism. TPTB hate the fact Bolshevism collapsed and it did not take over Europe and the West. Russia as it is today is an obstacle to their global aspirations and especially their goals for the West. The main goals are destruction of nations with Christian / Western culture and European heritage, this is easily observable. Russia is not going along with allowing their country to be overrun with all this and is simply too powerful and can’t be bullied. Therefore, they want to see Rus. destroyed. TPTB want to use the might and resources of the US for their own personal goals including using your children and grandchildren as disposable cannon fodder.
Who rationally believes the highest goals of US security is the protect Ukraine’s borders, even to the point of using nukes. This is madness, and we are being sold this dangerous nonsense. This is proof TPTB love their own goals more than they love Amer.
I don’t believe the red horse is where were at just yet. The two witnesses haven’t arrived yet nor has John started laying out the temple foundation, so no I don’t believe the seals have been broken yet. There are some super natural things that are going to start happening soon so I would definitely get right with Yeshua first and for most before its to late. Shalom
I urgently encourage all black and Muslim mothers to do this if you support BLM: encourage your sons and daughters to get down to the recruitment center and join up. This is a practical way to face ‘white privilege’ (ain’t nothing more white privilege than Russia), and to decolonise Europe at the barrel of a gun.
Support the Azov Battalion and support a free and democratic Ukraine. That powerful image of black and Muslim youth standing strong with neo-Nazis will echo down the ages (sarc).
See video explaining the link between the symbol of the World Health Organization and the first rider in Revelations chapter 6.
it’s obvious putin wants war , look how close he put his country to our military bases ! no one asked the most important question . why would putin invade a neighbor ? he has little to gain and much to lose in such an endeavor . he doesn’t need more land . russia is paying people to immigrate to occupy large ares that are sparsely populated . putin has positioned forces to assist in a breakaway and to aid and cover for refugee comrades who will be fleeing ethnic cleansing and vengeful reprisal .
