UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has backed Liz Truss’ view that Russian forces must be pushed out of “the whole of Ukraine” – and suggested this should include Crimea. Even the Guardian has accused Liz Truss’ position is “recklessly inflaming Ukraine’s war to serve her own ambition.” Meanwhile, in Russia, this is playing out on TV endorsing World War III.
The Russian view of Britain’s Foreign Secretary, Liz Truss, is that the war in Ukraine is really the West openly seeking the destruction of Russia. Moscow has come to the realization that this is already World War III, and the comment emerging from London is that Britain will not back down until they achieve the complete victory over Moscow. Boris Johnson apparently told Zelensky not to accept any deal with Putin. There are no peacemakers among them only warmongers.
Socrates has NEVER been wrong on such geopolitical forecasts. These people at the helm of the West are totally insane. They seem to think they can actually destroy Russia, overthrow Putin, and somehow the Russian people will welcome their liberation. For years, I have warned that post-2032, we are staring into the eyes of the collapse of the West. The financial capital of the world will shift to China. I put out those forecasts years ago.
There is simply a cycle to everything. The rise and fall of nations also follow a cyclical beat. The US has been the world leader ONLY since 1914. The USA will lose that title as soon as 2026 but certainly by 2032. I have put out those forecasts long before these events. How Empires Die illustrates that there is a cycle to the rise and fall of empires, nations, and city-states. If that statement were not true, we should all still be speaking Babylonian.
Nobody wishes these forecasts would be wrong more so than I. This is not something in which I take pleasure in pounding my chest and screaming I told you so! I have grandchildren who will never know the freedom or peace in which I grew up. All I can do is try to scream loud enough that maybe we can not prevent the outcome, but reduce the volatility during this transition and how far we will fall.
