By now it's abundantly clear that the neo-Orwellian "Two Minute Hate" Russophobic campaign launched by the Empire of Lies after the start of Operation Z, is actually "24/7 Hate".

Vast swathes of NATOstan have been corralled into behaving like a Russophobic lynch mob. No dissent is tolerated. The full psyops has de-facto upgraded the Empire of Lies to the status of Empire of Hate in a Total War - hybrid and otherwise - to cancel Russia.

Hate, after all, packs way more punch than mere lies, which are now veering into abject ridiculousness, as in U.S. "intelligence" resorting to - what else - lies to fight the info war against Russia.

If the propaganda overdrive has been lethally effective amidst the zombified Western masses - call it a "win" in the P.R. war - in the front where it really matters, inside Russia, it's a major fail.

Public opinion support for both Operation Z and President Putin is unprecedented. After videos of torture of Russian POWs that caused widespread revulsion, Russian civil society is even bracing for a "Long War" lasting months, not weeks, as long as the targets of the Russian High Command - actually a military secret - are met.

The stated aims are "demilitarization" and "denazification" of a future neutral Ukraine - but geopolitically reach way beyond: the aim is to turn the post-1945 European collective security arrangement upside down forcing NATO to understand and come to terms with the concept of "indivisible security". This is an extremely complex process that will reach the next decade.

The NATOstan sphere simply cannot admit in public a series of facts that a military analyst of the caliber of Andrei Martyanov has been explaining for years. And that adds to their collective pain.

Russia can take on NATO and smash it to bits in 48 hours. It may employ advanced strategic deterrence systems unmatched across the West. Its southern axis - from the Caucasus and West Asia to Central Asia - is fully stabilized. And if the going gets really tough, Mr. Zircon can deliver his hypersonic nuclear business card with the other side not even knowing what hit it.

"Europe has chosen its fate"

It may be enlightening to see how these complex processes are interpreted by Russians - whose points of view are now completely blocked across NATOstan.

Let's take two examples. The first is Lieutenant General L.P. Reshetnikov, in an analytical note examining facts of the ground war.

Some key takeaways:

- "Over Romania and Poland there are airborne early warning aircraft of NATO with experienced crews, there are U.S. intelligence satellites in the sky all the time. I remind you that just in terms of budgets for our Roscosmos we allocated $2.5 billion a year, the civil budget of NASA is $25 billion, the civil budget of SpaceX alone is equal to Roscosmos - and that is not counting the tens of billions of dollars annually for the entire U.S. feverishly unfolding the control system of the entire planet."

- "The war is unfolding according to "NATO's eyes and brains. The Ukronazis are nothing but free controlled zombies. And the Ukrainian army is a remotely controlled zombie organism."
