Several readers' questions:
RQ: I watched an updated documentary about missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 plane. Can I ask The Committee: is the plane moving across the ocean floor or is it stuck embedded / not moving? Is it still intact structurally?
C: The hull of the aircraft is not intact, pieces have been moved by ocean currents, obviously during sinking but also on the sea floor, however all are resting in place. The seafloor in the area is not flat, it would be considered rugged terrain on dry land above the ocean. The pieces and parts of the aircraft fuselage and wings and all parts of them, will remain where they are.
RQ: I am getting annoyed by all the anti-Russian propaganda in Western mainstream media. They would have us believe Putin is on the verge of death from disease and that the Ukrainian army are about to capture Moscow.
C: Times on Earth among humans are always troubled. It simply depends upon whose timepieces; calendars & locations are observed. Your reaction to the news offered about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is designed to provoke the reaction you have written. You are supposed to be annoyed, disgusted, ticked off or even angry. All of these reactions feed the objective of the creators of this war.
Russia is prevailing and will seize control of Ukraine. This could happen quickly with great destruction, leaving Russia with a damaged prize or it can be done slowly, allowing Russia to seize something more valuable.
Allow us an example, to illustrate our point. Assume half the population of Ukraine were to perish or permanently flee the nation. This would reduce both demand for goods & services and also labour available to produce, by at least half, likely more. Economies of scale would factor into “more”. Such reduction in the size of the economy would represent a significantly less valuable acquisition for Russia. Add traumatic effects on survivors of widespread slaughter, which would effectively ruin the prize, undermining almost completely efforts made to seize control.
The cheerleading in favour of Ukraine is designed to reinforce sensations of victimhood and oppression where such news is offered. These sentiments, feelings & reactions are being used to continue manipulation of the citizenry of many nations and regions. Big bad Russia versus the noble, well intended victims.
The Russians are moving pragmatically, with specific purpose and objective. Russia is reincorporating Ukraine into the Russian nation, be it called an empire, federation or union. The combination will enhance economic thus political power the combined efforts of separate nations could never achieve. The powerful, the controllers and the rulers of both nations will gain the most once this is concluded. The efforts made to condemn Russia are political posturing for the benefit of the posturers. The sanctions imposed are but a small piece of the conflict, a minor portion of the price paid for the extremely valuable asset, as Russia sees it.
Vladimir Putin knows well there is no Louisiana Purchase to be made for Russia. It is already one of the largest land area nations on your planet. Russia needs people to populate and produce, still others to acquire its products. Ukraine is the prize.
This was a foregone conclusion and a life plan event for many tens of millions of Ukraine and Russia citizens.
Humans who live where tyrannical war prone nations are not a threat, are easily lulled into a sense of benevolence humans do not yet widely share. Might still makes right on Earth among many humans, until humans choose other paths and positions, overall.
RQ: On May 9, the presidential elections will be held in the Philippines. Respectfully I ask if the Committee sees an honest and fair elections. Will the results of surveys being conducted for months be reflected in the election results? Supporters of the candidate who's been leading in all the surveys (with numbers in the mid 50s) are afraid that massive fraud and cheating will benefit his main rival whose numbers are in the low 20s. The rival has the support of the elite.
C: Voter surveys and polls do not replace elections and thus cannot often predict them. If such opinion gathering exercises were consistently accurate, elections would not be needed.
At the moment in the weeks and now days leading to elections about which the question asks, much activity occurs behind the curtains, as occurs with all elections everywhere. Donald Trump and Marine LePen are two excellent examples who could explain quite well but will never do so publicly. These elections in The Philippines will not be fair or honest, we regret to inform.
