a debate between Scott Ritter and Jeffrey Fischer
President Putin violated the Minsk Accords??? That’s new news to me... This guy is out in ORBIT. Even Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande admitted the Minsk Accords WAS A LIE. Scott DESTROYED Colonel Fisher with FACTS, not feelings.
I’d say you took old Jeffrey apart in this debate. Poor guy. But I remember when you were trying to wake America up to the lack of justification for invading Iraq. You took those touts apart too. But only got smeared for it. I don’t think they’ll listen any better now. These maniacs want war and they will trot out the most ridiculous people (Colon Powell) and ridiculous evidence to get their wars. And when that doesn’t work, they’ll send in Piggy Vicky, and her Zionist cookies. 😱. Pray for Niger.
Fischer did not enter into this in the same spirit Scott did - he attacks Scott right from the get go, and multiple times - Scott on the other hand dealt almost exclusively with the content (and context), and did not resort to trying to put Fischer down -just disagreed with him.
Let us not get too stuck in details here, and let us remember one very pertinent fact - it is NOT Russia who surrounds most of the World's nations with Military bases and insane American exceptionalism - Russia does not have over 1000 bases world-wide, Russia has not historically gone after every nation, one after the other, spouting words of peace, and delivering theft and murder, all with a very publically stated intent of 'Democratising' the World, or acting as if they are God's chosen nation (in contradiction of the scriptures I may add).
Sorry Fischer, but until you learn to debate without stooping to the same tactics your nation uses to try and build it's global empire, Scott remains as unblemished as his arguments, which were delivered well, and without prejudice towards you.
Ritter = 1, Fischer = 0
Interesting. My observation is that the US was exiting treaties which Russia then also exited in response. I noted that the US was typically making claims about Russian non-compliance without providing any proof beyond making the claim and ignoring the USs own non-compliance.
Maybe a good reminder that the Pentagon lost track of 21 Trillion dollars. And they "solved" it by allowing the changing of the numbers. And this is only the tip of the corruption. Not one dollar should be missing. Here is an interview about the research -> https://www.corbettreport.com/interview-1407-mark-skidmore-on-the-pentagons-missing-trillions/
In similar sense they treated the "nuclear disarming", "spreading democracy", etc. It is all backwards and designed to profit the most corrupt. The soldiers only see a bit of it. Like when they are ordered to guard a poppy-field or to drone-bomb a wedding.
Fischer either lied or was badly uninformed about New Start. The Russians did not "withdraw" from it. On 21 February 2023, Russia suspended its participation in New START. However, it did not withdraw from the treaty, and clarified that it would continue to abide by the numerical limits in the treaty.
Mr Fisher’s report although interesting is essentially anecdotal seen through the lenses of « puppets to puppeteers ».
The report completely ignores the political backdrop: the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact (1991) ; NATO integration of Hungary, Poland & Czech Republic (1999); The Kosovo War (which humiliated & enraged Russia); The NATO Bucarest Summit (2008) and the Maidan Coup (2014) just to mention a few.
Naturally Russia’s military stance vis-à-vis the USA and NATO evolves with every major political event and at times they may seem to be not as friendly as they used to be.
Mr Ritter’s advocacy, although less detailed, appealed to me as more comprehensive and consistent. Context matters.
After reading this piece I felt an immediate sadness for Col Fischer. Somewhere in the past this man was a well intentioned patriot but over the years his critical thinking has been worn down living in a NatSec bubble now he sounds like every other policy robot.
I knew you were right by the time I read the header but it's valuable to have the succinct argument available. Thanks.
And I am sure millions will be willing to sew them on our hats or jackets and ware them proudly it's looking alot like the 60 all over again...remember the peace sign...
Really like this Logo "Waging Peace " just a suggestion Scott have sew on patches for jackets hat size made and bumper stickers ect ect...and the I'll definitely were one with pride...and the money to produce them of course add on cost to allow you keep spreading the "real news"!.... like old late Paul Harvey use to say "now for the rest of the story " "Thank you for continuing your efforts to get us to the Peace table before this spins out of control...
You win in my book, Scott.
Thank you !!

Scott get them patches going on the production line I'll purchase some for the peace cause...
Someone should tell retired US Air Force Colonel Jeffrey Fischer to retire from ad hominem attacks.
His ad-hominem attacks in the rebuttal expose his lack of confidence, and inabilities in discourse.
