 Outside The Box,

  Red found this:  Russian Claim: Austin Dead In Ukraine
​  Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin was allegedly killed in Kyiv on January 3 when Russian cruise missiles peltered a command bunker where Austin and Lieutenant General Valerii Zaluzhnyi, commander in chief of the Ukrainian Army, met secretly to discuss mounting an asymmetrical offensive to “bring Vladimir Putin to his knees,” claims a Russian FSB source known for providing invaluable intelligence and the truth behind Putin’s Special Military Operation in Ukraine.
​  FSB agent Andrei Zakharov’s tale, however, directly contradicts an administration narrative about Austin clandestinely hospitalizing himself for an unknown ailment at Walter Reed Hospital.​..
​..Austin had spent so much time in Kyiv he ought to have applied for Ukrainian citizenship, Zakharov joked, adding that the secretive and self-admittedly reclusive Austin had traveled to Ukraine from Poland eight times in 2023...
​  Vladimir Putin, Zakharov said, had bestowed upon Austin the title of “war criminal.” Putin, he added, delighted in Austin’s demise.
​  “We knew Austin was in Ukraine, and we discovered their rendezvous point. We also know the pig Zaluzhnyi, and he is killer of the women and the children, was to meet his lieutenants to learn them about new drone warfare. They were our intended targets. Austin was a bonus.”
​  Twenty cruise missiles, he said, destroyed surface buildings and collapsed a labyrinth of interconnecting chambers underground. A battle damage assessment revealed the strike had razed the structures and cratered what lay beneath. Only rubble remained.
​  “Nothing on this earth could survive what we sent. Yes, he is dead. He must be dead,” Zakharov said.
​  Real Raw News’ American sources in the White Hat community, while stopping short of dismissing Zakharov’s story as wishful thinking, said they want to see irrefutable proof of Austin’s death before scratching his name off their own “most wanted” list. However, they’ve called the official narrative a blatant lie, for if Austin had gone to Walter Reed, their sources would have taken notice and informed General Smith’s office.
​  “We don’t know if that Russian story is baloney or not. Our sources at Reed are unimpeachable and they say he was never there. And as far as your other question, Mike, we don’t have him. If I learn more and can share, I’ll let you know,” a source in the general’s office said.

TIMELINE: When key figures found out about Lloyd Austin's hospitalization , The Pentagon says Austin was transported to the hospital on New Year's Day.

​No pictures of Austin or Zaluzhny in 2024...
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhny congratulated the military personnel on the past 2023 and noted that the coming 2024 will not be easy.

​  Celia Farber ,  Explaining What Monarch Means In The Context of All We Are Enduring
  A few have asked, here: What is Monarch programming? What do I mean exactly when I invoke it?​ 
​  This is a vast field of study and analysis. I’ve quoted Serge Lang before, one of the patron saints of clarity (as ethics), who posed this question:
“How do you address a morass without becoming part of it?”​ (AIDS=Morass, Covid-19=Morass)
​  If I had to put it very simply I would say that “Monarch Programming” is an engineering program of human minds, designed to undetectably detonate meaning, structure, truth, clarity, consequence, resolution—basically what we once thought of as “Western Civilization.”
​  That feeling, so common of late, that the mind is being assaulted, and the “normal”responses are fleeing into the sub-conscious/repressed, where shame grows.
What is worse, or more degrading, than being told (repeatedly) that what is clearly happening is clearly not happening?

  ​Caitlin Johnstone ,  Westerners Have An Absolutely Psychotic View Of Airstrikes
​  In response to multiple complaints from a retired Humber College professor about the wildly biased language that Canada’s state broadcaster has been using to describe Israel’s war on Gaza, Waugh acknowledged that the CBC routinely uses words like “murderous,” “vicious,” “brutal,” “massacre,” and “slaughter” to refer to the October 7 Hamas attack while using far less emotionally charged words like “intensive,” “unrelenting,” and “punishing” to describe Israel’s actions in Gaza over the last three months.
​  Waugh defended this extreme discrepancy by saying that Israel’s attacks in Gaza differ from the Hamas attack on Israelis in that Israel’s killings are done “remotely”.
​  “Different words are used because although both result in death and injury, the events they describe are very different,” Waugh wrote. “The raid saw Hamas gunmen stream through the border fence and attack Israelis directly with firearms, knives and explosives. Gunmen chased down festival goers, assaulted kibbutzniks then shot them, fought hand to hand, and threw grenades. The attack was brutal, often vicious, and certainly murderous.”​   
[or Israeli choppers, tanks and troops did...]
​  “Bombs dropped from thousands of feet and artillery shells lofted into Gaza from kilometers away result in death and destruction on a massive scale, but it is carried out remotely,” Waugh continued. “The deadly results are unseen by those who caused them and the source unseen by those [who] suffer and die.”​  ...
​..Military explosives rip human bodies apart. They burn people alive. They trap them under rubble where they die excruciatingly slowly in one of the most horrifying ways imaginable. They leave people without limbs. They dismember and disfigure children for life.​..
​..A UNICEF report released last month said that more than a thousand children had had one or both legs amputated since October 7 as a result of damage received by US-sponsored Israeli airstrikes, a number which would be significantly higher by now. We know that many such amputations have occurred without anaesthesia, because Israeli siege warfare has cut off Gaza’s healthcare system from the necessary supplies.

​  Israeli MK Comes Out in Support of South Africa’s Genocide Case Against Israel​ , Other Knesset members are calling for Ofer Cassif to be removed
​  MK Ofer Cassif, a member of the left-wing Jewish and Arab Hadash-Ta’al party, and around 200 other Israelis have signed a petition supporting South Africa’s 84-page filing that will be submitted to the ICJ later this week.
​  “The information that emerges from the lawsuit is both horrific and credible. Israel is indeed taking systematic and thorough steps to wipe out the population of Gaza; to starve, abuse, and displace it. It has implemented a policy of erasing options for livelihood, which is leading to genocide,” the petition reads, according to Haaretz.
​  Explaining his reasoning for signing the petition, Cassif wrote on X: “My constitutional duty is to Israeli society and all of its residents, not to a government and its coalition members who call for ethnic cleansing and even actual genocide. They are the ones that harm the country and its people; they are the ones who led South Africa to approach The Hague, not me and my cabinet members.”

  Jordan’s King Abdullah said on Monday that Israel had created a whole generation of orphans with its “brutal” war in Gaza, where he said over 30,000 people, mostly women and children, had been killed or were missing as a result of the conflict, Reuters reports...
..“More children have died in Gaza than in all other conflicts around the world this past year. Of those who have survived, many have lost one or both parents, an entire generation of orphans,” he said. “How can indiscriminate aggression and shelling bring peace? How can they guarantee security, when they are built on hatred?” Abdullah said of Israel’s war against the Hamas group.

​  Moroccan group: Israel kills journalists to cover up its crimes in Gaza
​  Morocco’s Al-Adl Wal-Ihsane (Justice and Kindness) group said Israel’s goal in killing journalists is to “discourage the media from reporting the truth, and to cover up its crimes against civilians, children and women, and the failure of its war in the Gaza Strip.”
​  In a statement after Israel killed journalist Hamza Al-Dahdouh, the eldest son of Al Jazeera’s Wael Al-Dahdouh, and his colleague Mustafa Thuraya yesterday, the organisation said this is “a deliberate war crime through which Israel seeks to discourage journalists from reporting the truth.”
​  Hamza and Mustafa were killed in an Israeli bombing that targeted a car they were travelling in as they covered events unfolding in the besieged Gaza city of Khan Yunis. Some 109 journalists have now been killed in Gaza since the start of the genocide.​ In killing journalists, Al-Adl Wal-Ihsane said, Israel “aims to cover up [its] crimes against civilians, children and women, and its failure [in its war] in the Gaza Strip.”

​  The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) announced the martyrdom of 146 employees working for it since the beginning of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip.
​  Since the beginning of the war in Gaza, up to 1.9 million people or more than 85 percent of the population have been displaced across the Gaza Strip, UNRWA said in a report issued on Monday.
​  There are approximately 1.4 million displaced people taking refuge in 155 UNRWA facilities in all five governorates of the Gaza Strip, with another half a million people accessing UNRWA services.

​  Demands for Israeli Ambassador to UK’s Expulsion After ‘Clear Call for Genocide’
"The Israeli ambassador has gone on national British radio and incited genocide," said one columnist. "This is an illegal act under the 1948 Genocide Convention."
​  A member of British Parliament demanded the foreign secretary “take the strongest possible action against” Tzipi Hotovely, the Israeli ambassador to the U.K., after she appeared on a radio broadcast of LBC and told host Iain Dale in no uncertain terms that Israel’s military must target civilian infrastructure in Gaza—a war crime under the Geneva Conventions.
​  Hotovely told Dale that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have found that “every school, every mosque, every second house, has an access to tunnel,” referring to the tunnels used by Hamas—which were first built when Gaza was under Israeli control in 1980.
​  “That’s an argument for destroying the whole of Gaza, every single building,” Dale said, prompting Hotovely to ask, “Do you have another solution, how to destroy the underground tunnel city?”

​  NATO Weakness Exposed as US-Led Red Sea Coalition Flops - Italian Admiral
​  The West’s failure to put together a coalition to secure the Red Sea is a worrying sign for NATO and EU unity, Luigi Binelli-Mantelli, a retired Italian admiral and former chief of staff of the Italian Navy and Italy’s Defense Staff, has said.
​  “France and Italy won’t join the US-led coalition in the Red Sea. This will have no impact from an operational point of view, since navies are well trained to coordinate their actions even outside a definite chain of command, but politically it’s proof of our weak cohesion as NATO as well as EU partners,” the senior former naval officer said.
​  “We must cope with [the Red Sea crisis] because this is not simply aimed against Israel, it’s a direct challenge to all Western countries, testing our determination and cohesion to protect our economy and our common values and way of life,” Binelli-Mantelli suggested.
​  [Has this train already departed?]​  The admiral encouraged the Western bloc to “revise and widen its role in the world’s stability and security,” and called on Brussels to “wake up from its ecumenic dream and think twice about its own solidity,” presumably referring to European nations’ efforts to create joint military forces based in EU structures instead of relying solely on NATO and the US.

​  Opinion: Russia Must Be Asia's Peace Maker , Declan Hays
​  The two main lessons East Asia can glean from the Suez/Red Sea stand off is that Israel, which has recently bombed civilians in Beirut, Damascus and Tehran in addition to its countless other war crimes, has torn up the rules of war by making everyone and everything legitimate targets. When we further factor the asymmetries Houthi missiles and Iranian war ships cause in the Red Sea, there are very major implications both for NATO’s plans to contain China and for China’s plans to propel its own neomercantilist agenda forward.
​  As the navies of China and NATO both see it, there are a series a pivot points, layered strings of pearls, as the Yanks call them, stretching from Vladivostok in the north, down through Japan’s home islands, past South Korea, onwards to Okinawa, Yonaguni and Taiwan, Itbayat, Basco, Batanes, Luzon and the Philippines, westwards through Palawan, the Spratly and Paracel Islands, Vietnam, Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India, Myanmar’s Coco Islands and Kyaukphyu port, Pakistan’s deep water Gwadar port and back to the Gulfs of Aden, Persia and Oman. One big tinderbox, from Siberia to Syria, being welded in by China’s Belt and Road Initiative to other tinder boxes, a pyromaniac’s paradise.
​  The importance of all those choke points and potential flashpoints is that both NATO and China are militarising them to degrees the world has never previously witnessed. NATO’s plan, much like Harry Truman’s earlier NCS 68 plan to contain the Soviet Union, is to corral China’s lines of advance into a relatively narrow waterway across the Taiwan Strait to Taiwan’s west and to then bombard China’s sea and land positions from forward bases on the front islets of Japan and the Philippines to Taiwan’s east.
​  China, meanwhile is colonising the South China Sea by turning Fiery Cross Reef, Gaven Reefs, Mischief Reef, Subi Reef and other once insignificant pinpricks like them into fully fledged military bases, complete with runways, fighter planes and missile batteries. When China’s DF-21D carrier killer missiles are added into the mix, China presents a real and present danger countries like India must factor into their own calculations, all the more so as China attempts to build land and sea bridges through Pakistan to Gwador thereby further threatening India to its north, and giving NATO and its fleet of Australian nuclear subs opportunities aplenty to stir the Asian pot further.
​  Although NATO’s Freedom of Navigation Operations (FONOPS) are designed to keep all these sea lines of communication (SLOCS) not only open but outside the grasp of China’s strategic strong points, there are plenty of chances for miscalculations, particularly in the South China Sea where China has been particularly aggressive, as evidenced by its repeated attacks on the Filipino marines on BRP Sierra Madre, which sits atop the 2nd Thomas Shoal.
​  Although China and its adversaries have a number of symmetric and asymmetric options available to them that range from Nordstream style no claim no blame attacks on hostile shipping to blowing up, in pre-emptive strikes, the Three Gorges Dam and thereby drowning the 1 billion or so Chinese unfortunates who live in the Lower Yanzgtse Valley, outside the lunatic asylums of Washington, most of those are not realistic choices.
​  That said, China’s reaction to the results of Taiwan’s pending 13 January elections might bring unwanted fireworks to bear on what already is a tense tinderbox. Should William Lai Ching-te, the incumbent vice president and the candidate of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), prevail over Hou Yu-ih from the opposition Kuomintang (KMT) Party, China will most likely spit the dummy again and launch massive military drills around the island or even grab Penghu Island as a sign it is serious about subjugating Taiwan.
​  Though China certainly carries a big stick, it doesn’t yet seem to grasp the notion that one should speak softly and only wave or use the stick as a last recourse. That is where the diplomats of Russia, which currently chairs the loose and untested BRIICS alliance, comes in.
​  As a long standing ally of Vietnam, China and India, and as one which understands the nuanced goals of all three of those countries, Russia can bring a lot to the table. Not only did Russia help broker peace in the 1965 2nd Kashmir war between Pakistan and India but Russia fully understands that India and Vietnam both want strategic autonomy, and that neither will ever submit to being a vassal of a revanchist China.
​  Taiwan currently leads the world in the crucial field of semiconductors and that is unlikely to change any time soon. And nor is Taiwan’s status as, for Taiwan to revert to the 1683-1895 era when it paid tribute to the Qing Dynasty, would mean empowering China to annex the entire region as Imperial Japan did in late 1941 from its Taiwanese/Formosan base. Because Japan, India, Vietnam and even the Philippines cannot accept that, China is thereby opening up the door for NATO’s carrier groups and sundry other legacy defence systems and that is far from being an optimal state of affairs if peace and trade, rather than war and all it entails are the goals.
​  There are two or even three ways out of this morass, only one of which is really acceptable. The first of these is to duke it out across the Taiwan Strait and every other strait or reef that is deemed important along the String of Pearls from Siberia to Somalia. The second way is for China to goose step ahead with its neomercantalism until the global economy revolves around it and it alone. The third and best way is for the BRIICS and allied countries to take the opportunity Russia’s chairmanship of that group offers and chart some way through all the straits and reefs they might sink or run aground on.
