A great example of all this is Zelensky’s information war in Ukraine vs. Russia’s real (kinetic) war. Ukraine’s corrupt, inept government is focused almost entirely on pushing out information propaganda rather than fighting a real war. On the battlefield, Ukraine is losing so badly that the entire Ukrainian military is likely just weeks away from a total collapse. Yet the “experts” continue to claim that Ukraine is winning and Russia is losing and somehow dozens of Russian generals have all been killed recently, although there is zero evidence to back such absurd claims.
Russia, meanwhile, is actually shelling Ukrainian forces with a merciless barrage of high explosive artillery rounds. No fakery is needed when you are communicating through high explosives. The detonation of each charge sends an unmistakable message: Leave this are or perish.
Ukraine has experts in psychological warfare and bullsh#ttery. Russia has experts in armor and artillery. Guess which one is going to win in the end?
