Russian expert, Andrei Martyanov: Answers Questions on Ukraine-Russia SMO & Israel-Gaza

by REALTRUTHTALK [12-15-2023 published].

(As you can see from below, Andrei Martyanov was born & educated in the Soviet Union and has first hand experience in their military before moving to the United States in the mid-1990s where he is now a Laboratory Director of a commercial aerospace group.

He points out that Ukraine has 1.5 million fresh graves, most of which are for their military fighters. You can multiply this by 2 or 3 to get a good estimate of the number of additional people injured. The death count of Ukrainian men is at least 1 million!

Only about 35 to 37 thousand Russian soldiers have been killed in action since the start of the Special Military Operation (SMO) in February 2022.

Russia doesn't want all of Ukraine, because many of their people hate the Russians. Russia wants to protect the Russians in Ukraine whom the Ukrainian government has been killing and trying to destroy. So all of the propaganda about Russia invading Europe is baseless. Russia has also made it clear that Ukraine must not join NATO and that the Nazi elements in Ukraine must be neutralized. 

Andrei also points out that the United States learned all of the wrong lessons from WW2. Our F35 fighter jets are the laughing stock of the world. Russia now has Mach 13 hypersonic missiles that are much faster than anything that we have and that we have no defense against. These hypersonic missiles have been destroying our Patriot anti-missile batteries in Ukraine. I have seen other military experts point out that we have no defense against Russia using these hypersonic missiles against our aircraft carriers.

The above video is definitely worth listening to, since it provides a reality check against the false propaganda being fed to us 24/7 by our media, government, & military. His views are also echoed by other military experts who are not bought off to spread false propaganda. — RAD)

Andrei Martyanov: It's Game Over for the West, Geopolitics & Empire (Apple Podcasts)

Russian military expert Andrei Martyanov discusses the dangers of American exceptionalism, globalism, and how our societies have become totalitarian. He explains how American military might was lost years ago and how Russia has not only become a peer competitor, but is decades ahead of the U.S. with a missile gap that has become a "technological abyss," possessing hypersonic weapons against which there is no defense (and which the U.S. does not have), air defense complexes (e.g. S-500s), and so on. True strength lies in possessing both an advanced physical economy together with first-rate military power. Russia has moved to a completely different tactical and operational paradigm. Conventionally, NATO and the U.S. can do nothing, Russia doesn't sweat them at all. The only war possible would be escalation to the nuclear threshold, but he believes there are enough smart people in Washington to prevent that. He comments on the disintegration of America culturally, and economically, which includes possibilities of hyperinflation and civil war. He believes the pandemic is a leverage points for the changeover of the old guard.

Losing Military Supremacy: The Myopia of American Strategic Planning, by Andrei Martyanov [2018]

The technological dimension of American “strategy” has completely overshadowed any concern with the social, cultural, operational and even tactical requirements of military (and political) conflict. With a new Cold War with Russia emerging, the United States enters a new period of geopolitical turbulence completely unprepared in any meaningful way—intellectually, economically, militarily or culturally—to face a reality which was hidden for the last 70+ years

“Martyanov’s must-read book is the ultimate Weapon of Myth Destruction (WMD). And unlike the Saddam Hussein version, this one actually exists.” — PEPE ESCOBAR, AsiaTimes

“The arrogant hubris of American exceptionalism and the myths that sustain it are subjected to devastating analysis in this long overdue book.” — PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS, “A Book for our Time”

The (Real) Revolution in Military Affairs, by Andrei Martyanov [2019]

“Once in a blue moon an indispensable book comes out making a clear case for sanity in what is now a post-MAD world. That’s the responsibility carried by “The (Real) Revolution in Military Affairs,” by Andrei Martyanov (Clarity Press), arguably the most important book of 2019.” — PEPE ESCOBAR, Consortium News.

“Martyanov convinced me that the Pentagon’s war planners need to upgrade their understanding of war and how to conduct one…” — PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS, Foreign Policy Journal.

“Andrei Martyanov’s book provides indispensable knowledge for anyone who wants to understand the current geo-political developments.” — MOON OF ALABAMA.

“Martyanov’s book could be an ideal ‘introduction to military analysis’ or a ‘planning military forces 101’ course... far from being anti-US, Martyanov’s books represent a herculean effort to try to wake up the comatose US public about the reality of modern warfare… I consider both of Martyanov’s books as a ‘must read’…” — THE SAKER, UNZ REVIEW.

This book gives an insight into the evolution of weapons and the way they influenced international relations in the 20th and 21st centuries. It also defines Revolution in Military Affairs as manifested via policy, politics, and technology. It reviews some models which are useful in assessing the current geopolitical situation. This book also tries to give a forecast of the future development of warfare and the ways in which it is going to change the whole system of international relations, hopefully towards a new geopolitical equilibrium. It follows on the heels of Martyanov’s significant earlier work, Losing Military Supremacy: The Myopia of American Strategic Planning.

Disintegration: Indicators of the Coming American Collapse, by Andrei Martyanov [2021]

The United States is undergoing a profound and radical transformation. From its largely self-proclaimed status as a global hegemon, the United States has lost ground in every single category that defines the power and status of a nation in relation to its rivals.

“The sections of the book on American military prowess are where Martyanov’s expertise really shines through. Martyanov claims that a revolution in military affairs has already destroyed the foundation of American post–World War II hegemony and that America simply has not yet awakened to this reality… But this is not Martyanov’s core critique, which is that the American military is simply not tailored to the needs of today’s world….The book really comes into its own in the long sections on the American economy…” — PHILIP PILKINGTON, American Affairs Journal.

“”Andrei Martyanov is in a class by himself… His new book, Disintegration, completes a trilogy. And it’s a stunning departure. Here, Martyanov, in meticulous detail, analyzes the imperial decline thematically – with chapters on Consumption, Geoeconomics, Energy, Losing the Arms Race, among others, composing a devastating indictment especially of toxic D.C. lobbies and the prevailing political mediocrity across the Beltway. What is laid bare for the reader is the complex interplay of forces that are driving the political, ideological, economic, cultural and military American chaos…” — PEPE ESCOBAR, Asia Times.

“Andrei Martyanov’s third book discussing the collapse of the US Empire looks into the social and economic phenomena which all contribute to that collapse. Disintegration is a multi-level analysis of the crisis which is now so clearly plaguing the USA of 2021. I consider Disintegration a “must read” for every US patriot who wants his country to overcome its current difficulties and for every person on the planet who wants to avoid a full scale war between Russia and/or China and the USA. Indeed, if you want to get a superb summation of what is *really* going on in the United States – read all of Martyanov’s books.” — THE VINEYARD SAKER.

“Martyanov shows that America’s disintegration is irreversible because the ruling elites are an organic part of the calamitous sources of dysfunction that have destroyed the country…The destruction of American unity and foundational beliefs is only one reason that the United States is disintegrating. Martyanov provides a number of other causes of our disintegration. One is that not only the US but the entirety of the Western world is no longer capable of providing competent leadership. This failure is general and not limited to government. Martyanov likens the Western world to a “Warhol can of Campbell’s Soup, which is nothing more than a ‘school of pretense.’” The West’s 15 minutes of fame is up.”” — PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS.
