“The story of its ruin is simple and obvious; and, instead of inquiring why the Roman Empire was destroyed, we should rather be surprised that it had subsisted so long. The victorious legions, who, in distant wars, acquired the vices of strangers and mercenaries, first oppressed the freedom of the republic, and afterwards violated the majesty of the purple. The emperors, anxious for their personal safety and the public peace, were reduced to the base expedient of corrupting the discipline which rendered them alike formidable to their sovereign and to the enemy; the vigor of the military government was relaxed, and finally dissolved, by the partial institutions of Constantine; and the Roman world was overwhelmed by a deluge of Barbarians.” — Edward Gibbon. The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Chapter 38 “General Observations on the Fall of the Roman Empire in the West”

News about NATO

For months before and after the special military operation (SMO) started, the mainstream media ran several propaganda narratives simultaneously. One of the first doom and gloom claims was that Russia would take Kiev in three days and most of Ukraine in a week or two.

Russia is conducting the SECOND full "exercise" this month of its nuclear forces; with YARS 800 Kiloton ICBM Transporter-Erector-Launcher (TEL's) now deployed OUT in the field.  United States Continuity of Government (CoG) plans are being implemented. 

Encrypted radio emissions from underground U.S. Bunkers, are also in full activation. 

The "exercise in Russia began about midnight eastern time last night.

On the night of July 23, Russian forces launched a devastating strike on a hideout of NATO military instructors in Ukraine. The successful strikes were first reported by unofficial military sources and they were soon confirmed by the official report by the Russian Ministry of Defense.

The testimony of a Czech mercenary, Filip Siman, who fought for the Ukrainian Carpathian Sich battalion, part of the International Legion for the Defense of Ukraine, sheds light on the alleged massacre in Bucha in 2022.

Moldova has become a logistics hub for Western military aircraft, Ion Chicu, the leader of the PDCM party and former prime minister, said, expressing concern over a possible transfer of lethal cargo through the eastern European country.

"Today, Moldova has become a logistics hub for transportation by military aircraft. There are photos of landed transport and military aircraft. As a citizen, as a parent, I am concerned by everything that is happening," Chicu told the Rlive broadcaster.

The chief of NATO’s European Command, Christopher Cavoli, has described Ukraine’s losses on the frontlines as merely a sign it is “generating force” for a further offensive. In a speech at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado on Thursday, the bloc’s top general said Kiev’s overall military strategy is “great” in terms of balancing recruitment, training, and arms procurement.
