Russian “MoE” Versus American “MoP” Unleashes “Pale Horses Of Destruction”
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
A thought-provoking new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting President Putin revealing during his remarks to celebrate the Navy Day national holiday in St. Petersburg this morning: “Today Russia confidently implements its large-scale objectives of the national maritime policy and persistently builds up the might of its Navy...This year alone, 30 warships of various classes will join it”, says these additional warships will join the new floating nuclear power plant under construction, that itself will join the Akademic Lomonosov, the world's first floating nuclear power plant constructed by Russia in 2020—are Russian warships and floating nuclear power plants tasked with opening Arctic waters to insure the transport of global shipping free from socialist Western colonial control.
In the just published Wall Street Journal article “America’s Military Trails Rivals In Race For The Melting Arctic”, this report notes, it factually observes: “Warmer temperatures are opening new shipping lanes between Asia and Europe and may eventually introduce brand-new shipping routes near the North Pole...As early as the 2030s, the Arctic may be practically ice-free in September...Shipping companies are studying Russia’s northern coast as the shortest link between seaports of East Asia and Europe, bypassing southern oceans and the Suez Canal...A cargo ship’s trip from Japan to a port in the Netherlands could be cut by more than half, to less than 6,000 miles from more than 12,000 miles, by traveling through the Arctic Ocean...The U.S. has just one icebreaker in the region for only part of the year, compared with three dozen owned by Russia...Russian-flagged commercial and government vessels active in Arctic waters rose to a monthly average of 709 last year, up 22% since 2018”.
Responding to a question about recent near-collisions involving Russian and American aircraft in Syria, this report continues, President Putin pointed out yesterday that the existing conflict-prevention lines that allow Russian and American officers to talk directly about “any crisis situation” still work, which he said shows that no side is interested in a conflict, but he added Russia is ready for a confrontation with NATO and warned: “If someone wants it – and that’s not us – then we’re ready”—a warning joined by President Putin saying he was well aware of the situation on the frontlines of the Ukraine Conflict, but said he does not consider command and control of the military to be “my business”.
Command and control of Russian military forces, this report details, is the “business” of Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, who when knowing that a conflict was inevitable between Russia and socialist Western colonial powers nearly ten years ago in 2014, assessed: “More than 25,000 Russian officers are officially in active service without an assignment, but their number will be dramatically reduced in the near future”—in order to dramatically reduce the number of Russian officers, Defense Minister Shoigu enacted the Measures of Effectiveness (MoE) standard, a metric used to measure the current system state: “Are we on track to achieve the intended new system state within the planned timescale?”—is an MoE standard used in the current conflict that causes the idiot Western leftist media to put out deceptive articles like “Putin Fires Military Commanders Who Have 'Performed Poorly'”—are deceptive because Defense Minister Shoigu is the one who replaces and/or reassigns commanders failing to meet MoE standards—in contrast to Russia, the American military uses the Measures of Performance (MoP) standard, a metric used to determine the accomplishment of actions, not achievements—and as recently explained by former US Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Shaffer, is an actually insane MoP standard that allows American military officers to list “accomplishment of actions” like how good boots are polished, but with none of them having to list any “achievements” accomplished, is why they’re never fired and can keep on losing wars.
While the American-led socialist Western colonial powers continue their suicidal proxy war against Russia in its corrupt puppet state Ukraine, this report notes, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova revealed yesterday: “Russia received about 30 peace initiatives for a settlement in Ukraine through official and unofficial channels...We are grateful to everyone...Even when we understood that negotiations were unlikely to bring any added value, but we always gave such a chance to partners or the situation in general...However, in April 2022, the Kiev regime withdrew from the negotiations”—a revelation followed by the comical news: “Saudi Arabia is set to host peace talks among Western countries, Ukraine and key developing countries, including India and Brazil, early next month...Washington and Europe are hoping the talks, which exclude Russia, can lead to international backing for peace terms favoring Ukraine”.
As to why these deluded socialist Western colonialist powers comically believe they can achieve peace in Ukraine by excluding Russia, this report concludes, was examined by world renowned Brazilian geopolitical analyst Pepe Escobar, who, in his just released open letter “Geopolitical Chessboard Shifts Against US Empire”, observed, assessed and warned:
The geopolitical chessboard is in perpetual shift – and never more than in our current incandescent juncture.
A fascinating consensus in
discussions among Chinese scholars – including those part
of the Asian and American diasporas – is that not only Germany/EU lost
Meanwhile, a smatter of Atlanticist foreign policy analysts are now busy trying to change the narrative on NATO vs. Russia, applying the rudiments of realpolitik.
The new spin is that it’s “strategic insanity” for
Translation: it’s NATO as a whole that is completely losing credibility, as its humiliation in the Ukraine battlefield is now painfully graphic for all the Global Majority to see.
Additionally, “donor fatigue” means losing a major war, badly. As military analyst Andrei Martyanov has relentlessly stressed, “NATO ‘planning’ is a joke. And they are envious, painfully envious and jealous”.
A credible path ahead is

most relevant European powers might accept it, but certainly not

Yet the golden rule still has not been met: if a vassal state wants to be treated as a sovereign state, the first thing to do is to shut down key branches of the Empire of Bases and expel US troops.
Russia has been forced to fight against a neighbor and kin that it simply can’t afford to lose; and as a nuclear and hypersonic power, it won’t.
That’s why we have no peace negotiations, and the
refusal even of a cease fire; the only possible outcome devised by the Straussian neocon psychos who run
In the recent past,
It’s quite clear that from
There will be no imminent BRICS currency – as noted by some excellent points in this discussion. The scope is huge, sherpas are only in the initial debating stages, and the broad outlines have not been defined yet.
The BRICS+ approach will evolve from improved cross border settlement mechanisms – something everyone from Putin to Central Bank head Elvira Nabiullina have stressed – to eventually a new currency way further down the road.
This would probably be a trade instrument rather than a sovereign currency like the euro. It will be designed to compete against the US dollar in trade, initially among BRICS+ nations, and capable of circumventing the hegemonic US dollar ecosystem.
The key question is how long the Empire’s fake economy can hold out in this wide spectrum geoeconomic war.
Everything Is A ‘National Security Threat’
On the electronic technology front, the Empire has gone no holds barred to impose global economic dependency, monopolizing intellectual property rights and as Michael Hudson notes, “extracting economic rent from charging high prices for high-technology computer chips, communications, and arms production”.
In practice, not much is happening other than the prohibition for Taiwan to supply valuable chips to China, and asking TSMC to build, as soon as possible, a chip manufacturing complex in Arizona.
However, TSMC chairman Mark Liu has remarked that the plant faced a shortage of workers with the “specialized expertise required for equipment installation in a semiconductor-grade facility”. So the much lauded TSMC chip plant in Arizona won’t start production before 2025.
The top Empire/vassal NATO demand is that
Predictably, US Think Tankland has gone bonkers, with American Enterprise Institute hacks rabidly stating that even economic de-risking is not enough: what the US needs is a hard break with China.
In fact that dovetails with
So the pattern ahead is not

Russian diplomacy at the highest levels is going all out to relieve the pressure over the DPRK. Strategically, that’s a real game-changer; imagine the huge and quite sophisticated North Korean industrial-military complex added to the Russia-China strategic partnership and turning the whole Asia-Pacific paradigm upside down.

All that while the BRICS+ “jungle” turbo-charges the necessary mechanisms capable of sidelining the unipolar Western “garden”, as a helpless Europe is being driven to an abyss, forced to split itself from China, BRICS+ and the de facto Global Majority.
It doesn’t take a seasoned weatherman to see which way the steppe wind blows – as the Pale Horses of Destruction plot the trampling of the chessboard, and the wind begins to howl.
