Historical Guide to Military Intervention in Ukraine

Adding to the level of disgust I currently hold for the combined west, and fomenting the production of my previous article – ‘Total War Endgame’, was this expertly detailed history of what we are now witnessing in Ukraine. I haven’t yet read it all (it is a long read) but each and every statement made by the author (see his credentials below) is in agreement with my own and mostly pre-stated views, here and elsewhere since 2014. I urge you to read it.

The author, from his bio at the foot of the article is…

Jacques Baud is a former Colonel of the General Staff, former member of Swiss strategic intelligence, specialist in Eastern European countries. He was trained in the American and British intelligence services. He was the head of doctrine for United Nations peace operations. A United Nations expert for the rule of law and security institutions, he designed and led the first multidimensional United Nations intelligence service in Sudan. He worked for the African Union and was responsible for the fight against the proliferation of small arms at NATO for 5 years. He was engaged in talks with top Russian military and intelligence officials right after the fall of the USSR. Within NATO, he followed the Ukrainian crisis of 2014, then participated in programs of assistance to Ukraine. He is the author of several books on intelligence, war and terrorism, and in particular Le Détournement published by SIGEST, Govern by fake news, The Navalny affair, and Poutine, master of the game? published by Max Milo.

His latest book “Putin, master of the game? », Editions Max Milo, published on March 16, 2022.


From such a writer with such unexpected credentials, will you now listen to what he says? These are matters of great importance for our world – and its future.

The article is from what I think translates to ‘The France Centre for Research On Intelligence’ and, as such, appears in the French language. Simply hit the language button in the banner header and select your own preferred language – which unfortunately does not include Russian (though I doubt that would deter capable Russian readers).


Simply as an appetiser for those considering undertaking the not inconsiderable task of reading this fine piece, I will offer this quote. It is the final words to the Conclusion from the piece…

After all, what makes the conflict in Ukraine more blameworthy than the war in Iraq, Afghanistan or Libya? What sanctions have we adopted against those who have deliberately lied before the international community to wage unjust, unjustified, unjustifiable and murderous wars? Did we try to “make suffer” the American people who had lied to us (because it’s a democracy!) before the war in Iraq? Have we even adopted a single sanction against the countries, companies or politicians who are fueling the conflict in Yemen, considered the ”  worst humanitarian disaster in the world  “? Have we sanctioned the countries of the European Union who practice the most abject torture on their territory for the benefit of the United States?

To ask the question is to answer it… and the answer is not glorious.
