Sun Tzu Speaks to Putin on the Ukraine

There Are No Sunglasses




“All warfare is based on deception.” 











“Supreme excellence consists of breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.” 

"Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent's fate."


“To know your Enemy, you must become your Enemy.”  


“Thus we may know that there are five essentials for victory:
1 He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.
2 He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces.
3 He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks.
4 He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared.
5 He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.” 



“Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.”  

“There is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare. ” 

“The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.” 

“Ultimate excellence lies not in winning every battle, but in defeating the enemy without ever fighting.” 


“There are not more than five musical notes, yet the combinations of these five give rise to more melodies than can ever be heard.

There are not more than five primary colours, yet in combination
they produce more hues than can ever been seen.

There are not more than five cardinal tastes, yet combinations of
them yield more flavours than can ever be tasted.” 



“To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.” 

“who wishes to fight must first count the cost” 

“Convince your enemy that he will gain very little by attacking you; this will diminish his enthusiasm”  

“If his forces are united, separate them.” 


“No ruler should put troops into the field merely to gratify his
own spleen; no general should fight a battle simply out of pique.
If it is to your advantage, make a forward move; if not, stay
where you are.
Anger may in time change to gladness; vexation may be succeeded
by content.
But a kingdom that has once been destroyed can never come again
into being; nor can the dead ever be brought back to life.”  



“It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils of war
that can thoroughly understand the profitable way of carrying it on.” 


“Move not unless you see an advantage;  use not your troops unless there is something to be gained; fight not unless the position is critical.” 

“Begin by seizing something which your opponent holds dear; then he will be amenable to your will.” 

“Therefore the skillful leader subdues the enemy's troops without any fighting; he captures their cities without laying siege to them; he overthrows their kingdom without lengthy operations in the field.”  

“Again, if the campaign is protracted, the resources of the State will not be equal to the strain.”

  1. Rumors abound (naturally); propaganda is rampant; Kerry is a duplicitous hypocrite. Who you gonna believe in a world saturated with US ZOG press? "AIPAC: Treasury Secretary Jack Lew: 'The future of the United States is tied to the future of Israel.'"

    2. Here's a quote from Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago:

      And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you'd be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur — what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked? The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! "If. . . if . . . We didn't love freedom enough. And even more — we had no awareness of the real situation. We spent ourselves in one unrestrained outburst in 1917, and then we hurried to submit. We submitted with pleasure! . . . We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."

  2. Hi Kenny

    sigh.... one word keeps rolling through my head
    insanity
    Why do we except the deluded as leaders?
    Why?
    Why don't we realize we just don't need the people?
    And these people are deluded. Let's not pretend otherwise.
    So why don't we just see it, name it and start building a world without them?

    That statement by Kerry?
    What the hell?
    I have had the blog going for going onto 7 years and I sometimes am at a loss on what to say about these insane situations

    I don't know Kenny, I am at a complete loss today

    1. My take has been that the money and blackmail have kept the deluded puppets in line. With the rigged system, we have few ways to counter who becomes and stays leaders short of a real rebellion where many of us will die.

      Personally I don't think the events of now will lead to WWIII but the tensions will remain. Russia needs to be weakened is the goal so that Iran and Syria can be dealt with without them. If, big if, Russia can be 'balkanized' complete control of the world is at hand. At least I think that is the plan.

      The reasons why the psychopaths want this is a deep question and I don't have an answer. "Normal' people would basically live and let live but those who control the gold, printing presses and assets are not normal. We have to deal with those who in the common sense of the word are not human. So actually I'm at a loss too.

  6. Zionism & Russia
    by Valdas Anelauskas

    Excerpt:

    The foundations of Zionism were formulated in ancient times, some three thousand years ago, and they are:

    1. The Jews are God's chosen people.

    2. All other peoples are merely two-legged animals (goys).

    3. The Jews have both the right and the obligation to rule the world.

    The second and third points of this three-in-one formula actually follow from the first. The formula, which was the brainchild of an undoubtedly very talented politician of ancient times, was among the foundations of the religion of Judaism (see the book of Deuteronomy in the Old Testament). At that time people understood very well that if one is to lend force to one's intentions, one must express them as religious ideas. And one must also strengthen not only the religion but also its influence on people.

    Another reason why this ancient Zionist formula is, I would say, a stroke of genius is that, irrespective of religion, it is a most powerful way of influencing a person who believes that he belongs to the chosen people (in this case Jewish people). The only point is that if — as has been possible in recent times — he does not believe in religion, then the words "God's chosen people" are replaced by "the people chosen by nature" or simply by "the chosen people". And if someone's opinions have not yet become firmly fixed, it is so easy, merely by a little application, to convince him that he is a member of what, in terms of intelligence, talent, audacity, etc., is the best of all nations, and that no other nation is fit to hold a candle to that one nation.

    And, of course, it is impossible to persuade Zionists to change their views, because this formula was instilled into most of them in probably early childhood. Even Jews who may have broken with Judaism and its traditions nevertheless imbibed some of its values and transposed them onto modern politics.

    And the Gentiles, we do not of course agree with the idea that we are two-legged animals, even if some of us (like so-called Christian fundamentalists, dispensationalists, Christian Zionists) have been led to believe that the Jews are indeed the "chosen" people and have the ability and the right to rule the world...
