Defense Secretary Punished For Telling Truth About Ukraine

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin pulled a “whoopsie,” blurting out that one of NATO’s objectives in the Ukraine War is to “weaken” Russia. The US is not supposed to admit that obvious fact, however, so Austin was reprimanded by President Joe Biden.

Jimmy and America’s comedian Kurt Metzger discuss this “gaffe” from Austin and the lies our government tells us about war and imperialism.

  1. i like Jimmy but his position on Ukraine is ridiculous… if Russia started "special military operation" in Alaska i bet his position would be different but hey its not his country that is being bombed 🙂

  2. That's not the point. All those 100 million dollar yachts, houses, supermodel mistresses, super cars and corporate prostitute 'journalists' of the military oil industry owners don't buy themselves.

  3. That was a disaster he literally said to the Russian people we want to kill your sons. The American people need to get smart somehow and stop this insanity we are slowly sliding into the hell of another European world war. Washinton has no clue who they are dealing with (the media is criminal in its ignorance and intentions), no strategy no exit plan, no Generals obviously and are so outclassed people aren't going to believe it when they see it. Lech Walesa today is arguing for breaking up Russia and reducing its population to 50 million. Poland wants this war, the Baltic states want war, and the UK wants war, and Congress wants this war. People have been so misled they think genocide is happening when Ukraine's civilian deaths just got to 5,000 last week. The BBC just ran a fake propaganda story "Sole survivor of Russian firing squad" on the 5th saying it was a crime "defining a new age of atrocity in Europe". Which is a retelling of the story the NY Times did May 19 "New Evidence Shows How Russian Soldiers Executed Men in Bucha". The CCTV surveillance footage of the Ukraine victims being led across the street now has been dramatically altered onto a new street background. The videos in the original NY Times piece claim to show Russian Special Forces, Paratroopers, in the city which they show still photos of real Russian Paratroopers, well equipped, fit men with paratrooper stripes and patches and then cut to the "surveillance video" which is just a mob of Ukrainians pretending to be Russian soldiers in baggy misfitting and mismatched uniforms some wearing tennis shoes.

    The Russians have been preparing for this war for 20 years. (We put it in writing in the Wolfowitz doctrine in 1992 just 2 months after the Russian Federation was created our new first objective "keep Russia down".) When NATO expanded in 1999 and Poland joined they knew they were going to be fighting a war with America and NATO in the near future. Their economy started to recover in the early 2000's so that's about 20 years to have what they need ready today. Russia can field whatever size army it wants all men serve 1-year active service and are in the reserves and they have 21 million men between ages 18-40. Whatever they need should be ready from their listed strength at least, (Russians are known for keeping aces up their sleeve, new weapons, and reserves)

    1-2 million man Army, 12,000 tanks, 30,000 armored vehicles, 6,000 self-propelled artillery, 7,500 towed artillery, 3,300 multiple rocket launchers, 544 attack helicopters, 772 jet fighters, 739 attack fighters, 120 heavy bombers, 70 submarines, and 6,000 nuclear weapons. There's news about Belearuse doing some military exercise to help Russia today, whatever Belearuse has been doing it was all planned out already. I would consider Russia and China to be in a military alliance now and have military plans for mutual support if the war goes big. Each knows if they watch the other go down they are just going to be next and fight alone so they need to fight together and survive together. These are two countries that do not F around when it comes to defending themselves. None of this is impossible but somehow people won't believe it if they get to see it. Plan for what they can do, not what you think they are going to do.

  4. YT police "remonstrate" you every time you get 1 week in the freezer after being accused from "preposterous" lies. I learn a lot of new fancy words in Jimmy's videos.

  5. The irony is that it's the USA that's been exposed as a weak power. It ALWAYS needs allies to wage wars. Russia does not need allies – being a military commodity supervisor based in the true global geographical centre – Asia.
