In other news, there was an armed uprising in Kazakhstan this week, but it is getting little reportage worldwide, and most of that is fake news. They are saying it was because of gas prices, but alternative sources are admitting it was due to vaccine mandates and deaths. The revolutionaries took over the main airport and state offices in Almaty, attacking the police station, but we are told Russia sent in forces to defeat the revolution. That sounds about right. The Phoenicians are unlikely to let the revolution start in Kazakhstan or anywhere else, and are sure to close ranks. All the surrounding countries, even former enemies of Kazakhstan, have come out against the revolutionaries, calling them terrorists. If any country like Iran or North Korea is supporting the revolution, I have not heard of it. Nations don’t exist anymore anyway.
What we have now is a Worldwide Federation of Pfizer, and we can be sure they are the ones who ordered troops to Kazakhstan. But we should have eyes on Kazakhstan, for we might learn something from it as some real information leaks out over the next months. One of the things we may learn is that the revolution was staged to allow Russia to retake Kazakhstan. It seems the last thing Kazakhstan would wish to do is call in the Russian army. Are we supposed to believe Kazakhstan doesn’t have its own army capable of dealing with an armed revolt in the first days? While our eyes are on Ukraine, Russia takes the opportunity to do a lightning strike on Kazakhstan, reabsorbing it overnight. My guess is Russian troops will not leave.

The media version –
The undisputed President of Kazakhstan, Tokayev, requested CSTO support, claiming his nation was under attack. To bolster the appearance of multilateralism, RU forces are deploying alongside smaller number of troops from two other CSTO states, Belarus and Armenia. These CSTO forces will secure critical government installations, freeing up the Kazakh military to perform “anti-terrorism.” The most critical function of the CSTO deployment is internal signaling within Kazakhstan.
Now that Kazakh forces know Russia is backing their government, fewer of them will be willing to join the side of the opposition. We saw that happen before. I doubt we’ll see it again. In the short term, while Kazakhstan remains volatile, Russia’s freedom to maneuver in Ukraine may be constrained. But this will not motivate Moscow to deescalate the crisis in the long term.
Instead, it will only strengthen perceptions of the West as an existential threat. Activists from prior color revolutions are already publicly taking credit for what is happening in Kazakhstan. Here is a post from Belorussian activist, Dzmitry Halko, who says that he helped organize the uprising in Kazakhstan along with veterans of the Ukraine revolution…
The Kremlin’s biggest fear is a “Maidan on Red Square” – i.e., a repeat of the Ukrainian revolution inside Moscow. The more that it appears the West is pursuing similar revolutions in former Soviet republics, the more aggressively Russia will push back.
In America, the situation in Kazakhstan is a small news item. In Moscow, it is currently receiving 24/7 news coverage, like it’s an apocalyptic threat to Russia’s security. I’ve had the TV on here while writing this thread, and Kazakhstan has been on the entire time.
It’s important to note that today (Jan.7) is Christmas in Russia. (They celebrate it on January 7th rather than December 25th, due to the Russian Orthodox church still adhering to the Julian Calendar.) When Christmas is overshadowed by a security crisis, it’s a big deal.
