  1. Arguably even of Ukraine Had lost faster then, it would have suffered vastly, incomparably less terrible destruction and loss of life.
    And since the Russians would only have quickly marched in to intimidate and at worst depose the goverment before moving out again, they would have lost far less, if any, territory either.

  3. I have a question for Mr. Alexander Mercouris: I refuse to think that Merkel has not considered all the implications of his words, meaning she is too intelligent not knowing that once she admitted that she as the german prime minister and so forth NATO and USA acted in bad faith regarding the Minsk treaty, actually deceiving Russia, she basically calls the bluff of the western block and shows the criminality of NATO actions…therefore why did she speak the way she did to Der Spiegel…Is Merkel trying to sabotage USA's policy? Or she is simply stupid? I cannot believe the latter.

  4. Alexander, please tell me why you consider Biran Berletic a "military analyst"? Is it because he was in the Marines for 4 years as a repairman, not seeing military action? He was in the Marines twenty years ago. I guess being an ex-marine brings validity to his opinions. I know in China the title of ex-Marine carries some weight. Mr. Berletic was featured in an article in a state run media organization, CTGN based in Beijing. The article was titled "Ex-Marine Exposes U.S. Govt's Secret Political Interference In Asia". The article is dated Nov 29, 2021. So, as a repairman, Mr. Berletic's 4 year service 20 years ago, has put him in a position to expose US government military secrets? When I ask someone who claims to be a "geopolitical analyst" a question on their own channel, their response shouldn't be that I am "being made a fool of because of where I am getting my news". Mr. Berletic should have enough conviction in his beliefs to tell me why he doesn't think Iran supports terrorism. He should have the integrity to tell me why he doesn't think Iran supports the destruction of Israel. Since I have been banned from Mr. Berletic's channel and others for asking these questions, I've realized that these Youtube channels are just an echo chamber for those with the same views. No disagreement allowed. Congratulations to those Youtube channels, you are now MSNBC.

  5. Merkel worst chancellor in German history, but media licked her spittle and being a woman isolated her from severe criticism – you are not harsh to a Mutti. The whole climate of intellectual and political discussion in this country fell prey to her mildew.- So Scholz, not any better, has the ideal environment to further ruin this country.

  6. Good day Mr Mercouris, I am always enriched with your knowledgeable analysis and demonstrable language abilities. Kindly, I am asking you, since you have had history studies courses, to make short ( no more than 25/30 min ) series on European history. And this will definitely relate to the current events and wars. Thank you, Sophia

  7. Hello Alexander. Given your commitment to pronouncing the /kh/ in Ukrainian city names correctly, I was surprised to hear you pronounce Xi Jinping incorrectly in a recent The Duran video. It's [ɕǐ tɕîn pʰǐŋ], which sounds like She Cheen Peeng, not See Sheen Peeng.

  8. Excellent analysis, thank you Alexander 👍
    Without Merkel & Co many lives would have been spared!
    And without Johnson there would have been a peace treaty in March of this year, and many lives would have been spared.
    And without the (p)resident in the White House, the Nordstream pipelines wouldn't have been destroyed. Now many people in Europe will suffer and many elderly and poor people will die.

  9. Another Bitext, but this time England is kicked out the world cup with their tail between their legs. Believe it or not, there will be no glory for nations that create wars and human suffering around the world. Boris Johnson and Biden are the two leaders that are prolonging the suffering of the Ukrainian people. Dammy Zelensky is too big to understand that Ukraine cannot win this nonsense war. He better negotiate with
    Russia or there will be nothing left of Ukraine.

  10. "Masterful" is the word used by a commentator below. I concur: it is the appropriate word to describe Alex's tour de force. It truly deserves to be shared widely – and I certainly intend to do that forthwith. And so should others. It is the most objective, clearest single piece of analysis I've seen. But it makes me fear for the future of Europe even more: how can it possibly get out of the apocalyptic mess it's put itself into ? I'd love to read a response from to that question. Or, will we have to await 'facts on the ground' to sort it? With all the continuing death and destruction that will entail.

  11. Dear Mr Alexander Mercouris
    I'm afraid I can't express my thoughts in a short way.
    I heard your comments on what Angela Merkel said to the "Spiegel" and to "Die Zeit" and also Scott Ritter's comments on the same subject and I rather shared your former opinion (that she was sincere at the time) than Scott's.
    Now, although I never paid too much attention to politics until the Covid, hm, "thing", I remember vaguely that "giving Ukraine more time" meant – as how the media made it sound like – more time to become "fully democratic" – like Turkey, which was held outside outside the EU for the same reasons…
    Of course you are right in speaking of her cowardice at that time (which, still, you cannot compare to the cowardice of our present ( or rather un- present) chancellor sleepy Olaf Scholz…
    I think, Angela Merkel has become a coward only now, when, it seems, the whole world has lost its senses, it's common sense, and, of course, I'm disappointed with her, but this lack of common sense and addiction to lie has become a disease, spreading, like a real pandemic (which we were told "Covid" was…) does.

  12. Disinfornation, fake news, no expertise, a fraud talking, episode after episode lying, just follow the facts the next day and Mercouris is unmasked. We can assume that people that call him brilliant or thank him for telling the truth are not for real.

  13. One little , two little , three dead Wagners
    Four little, five little, six dead Wagners
    Seven little, eight little, nine dead Wagners
    Merry festive season Wagners, hope you liked the ATACMS that Santa delivered down the chimney.

  14. Am I being Shadow-banned? Please like or Dislike, so I can determine if they are Shadow-banning my comments. I appreciate your dislike, as much as a like, just to see if anyone can see my posts. Thank you very much.

  15. "Bahkmut unimportance": it's important as the southern end of an important defensive line of fortifications. It defends and controls important highway and rail lines and interchanges.
    There have been other reports on AFU wounded and Russian artillery fire. Ukrainian doctors reported that artillery wounds are either relatively minor or they are fatal, in part due to delayed casualty evacuation.

    Putin truthfully slams Merkel for French-German Minsk mendacity. I remember Foreign Minister Lavrov sneering at a BBC reporter at last summers SPIEF conference, "Nobody cares what you think". She visibly flinched in stunned surprise. 

    GFW Hegel, The Philosophy of History, “What experience and history teaches us is that people and governments have never learned anything from history, or acted on principles deduced from it.”

    This war was started to support Biden's mid-term political hopes by crippling Russia. Russia has comprehensively ground AFU units to dust using roughly 15% of Russian forces, much less than those Ukraine deployed behind long developed defences. Russia's economy has never looked stronger while the EU looks set to collapse into a long depression under punishing energy, food, and raw material shortages. It's ironic the White West appears ridiculously weak politically, economically, and militarily. 

    Eduardo Galeano: "My great fear is that we are all suffering from amnesia. It's not a person. It's a system of power that is always deciding in the name of humanity who deserves to be remembered and who deserves to be forgotten.”

    The Ukraine War’s most surprising outcome is lack of support for US actions by Asia, Africa, and Latin America. This is the most surprising and strategically important development of the Ukraine War. The Global South knows they must hopelessly capitulate if Russia and China fall. US-NAYOYO treaties are worthless, when they aren't treacherous lying excuses to plan and execute the murder of 14,000 civilians. So it won't be the irrelevant opinions of White Westerners that define this war. It will be blunt demands and brutal facts on the ground that define Ukraine's public defeat. This war will end with NATO's humiliation, and the Global South ecstatically dancing in the streets. The war will end with Russia's tanks shaking the ground at western Ukrainian borders.

    Homer: “Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.”

  16. Alexander is great on the details of the conflict, and the discussion of Russia strengthening its economy since 2014 to withstand sanctions was interesting, but I really wish he'd would stop banging on about how he thinks politicians decide on policy (in fact, they are paid well to do what they're told). The policy-makers are zionist oligarchs and their neocon minions such as Victoria Nuland, and you can see what their policies are by visiting the WEF website, e.g. de-industrialisation and impoverishment of the West.

  17. Winston Churchill (1944): ”I have left the obvious, essential fact to this point, namely, that it is the Russian Armies who have done the main work in tearing the guts out of the [Nazi] army."

    The alternative to French-German application of the Minsk Treaties would have been honest, forthright application of treaty clauses and spirit. Instead, the Minsk Treaties were a sham designed to impose a ceasefire on the Republics and Russia, but not on the AFU. As former Ukraine President Poroshenko admitted, there was no intent to apply this treaty. It was merely a delaying tactic, that revealed Western duplicity in disgusting detail. NAYOYO countries are 'Ukraine Nazi friends' but not friends of peaceful coexistence with Russia. NAYOYO would rather have Russian enemies than peaceful competitors. This has been noted by the Global South.

    Homer: “Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.”

    US-NAYOYO wanted this war, wanted these self-defeating sanctions. They embraced both like porn stars, with reason and art appearing as seldom as love. US politicians will demonize Global South leaders for transparently selfish domestic political gain. Then attack their economies: by seizing hard won assets necessary for proper development and functioning of their economies; by excluding them from trade and financial networks; by punishing political, intellectual, business and arts leadership. It doesn't matter how reasonable, loyal, or generous Global South countries have been in the past. Egypt, Venezuela and Mexico supported the Allies through WWII with cheap, highly profitable crude oil. Iran and Egypt supported Little Britain’s colonial empire through WWI as well. They received treacherous collaborators, poverty, contempt, and death squads as reward.

    Jackie Robinson, 1972 biography: "I cannot stand and sing the anthem. I cannot salute the flag; I know that I am a black man in a white world…I know that I never had it made."

    Winston Churchill: "Americans can always be trusted to do the right thing, once all other possibilities have been exhausted."

    US signed treaties are worthless and won't stop any rump, western-aligned Ukraine from committing further provocations and outrages. US-NAYOYO statements, promises and treaties are treacherous lying excuses to plan and execute genocidal murder. So it won't be the irrelevant opinions of White Westerners that define this war. It will be blunt demands and brutal facts on the ground that define Ukraine's public defeat. This war will end with NATO's humiliation, and the Global South ecstatically dancing in the streets. The war will end with Russia's tanks shaking the ground at western Ukrainian borders.

    Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, 1033: "We must make our choice. We may have democracy, or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both."

    US-NAYOYO's 'cosmic cretinism' has finally allowed the Global South an alternative not available since the end of the Non-Aligned Country movement. 

    Alexander Solzhenitsyn (1978): “A continuous blindness of superiority is typical of the West; it upholds the belief that vast regions everywhere on our planet should develop and mature to the level of present-day Western Systems.”

  18. Wow Alexander, so many angry commenters arrive whenever you discuss Ukraine! right over the target I guess. It amuses me and then I remember that it's all about losing our freedom of thought and expression. Who knows how long we will have it? Blessings.
