In an era where web resources and online services gather vast amounts of private information, data protection and privacy have become crucial concerns. Whenever you engage with a website, it inevitably gathers various details about you, including your IP address, location, and device information. By using the proxy server provided by https://onlineproxy.io/, your request to access a specific website will be routed through this intermediary server, effectively concealing your true identity from the website. This ensures that the website's content is delivered to you without revealing your actual personal information. As a result, using a proxy server enhances your online privacy and helps safeguard your sensitive data from prying eyes.

That was kind of weak, justifying the betrayal of the Kurds by citing instances where others have been involved in equally despicable betrayals. I mean, the Soviet/Nazi Germany non-agression pact, is that really to what you want to compare yourselves to? It is one thing to be a patriot and quite another thing to try to justify anything and everything what one's country does.

A conversation with George Friedman and Peter Schiff would probably be the equivalent to putting a portable hole into a pocket dimension.

as a polish guy I need to say, from our perspective this sound like portion of propaganda for western media, one of my best friend is from Ukraine, he come to Poland because in one month he was making money for for week of life(east Ukraine). Before Russia attack Ukraine, he had good life, when I show him that podcast he said"i already use to Russian narration, Putin destroyed my county, because him support from ctizens in Russia was low" for me it is just sad, our neighbours suffer trought russian imperalism
