Hello all, Well, we’ve finally done it—the mother of all milestones: 20,000 total subscribers! And I couldn’t have done it without you all. I’d like to thank everyone for the continued support and for creating a lively community. We reached the 5k milestone back in March 3, a mere month after starting the site:
Congratulations! Well deserved! Thanks for what you do for us.
Congratulations! I would like to see more coverage of other theatres, like Africa going forward. This is a multi front conflict you are covering. Thanks!
You deserve 20,000,000 subscribers.

Journalist. Politician. Parasite. I'm trying to compose a list of useless life forms. Feel free to add to the list.
Congrats Simplicius, I found this page through The Duran and I have been thoroughly enjoying it. Would love to see more in depth weapons systems articles like you did with the hypersonics vs AD article.
“What is journalism, anyway? Is it where the guy sponsored by Pfizer, Raytheon, BlackRock, et al, reads you a heavily laundered and sanitized script from a teleprompter, spinning the pre-written narrative approved in some backroom at last week’s CFR/WEF shindig?”
You have written many brilliant things, but that takes the cake.
Congrats on 20K! Well earned. May Substack continue to protect free speech and promote meritocracy in this marketplace of ideas so that the best rise to the top.
I find that much of the "support" that people have for Russia is actually disgust/protest of their own governments and societies, and Moscow seems to sound sane. Most have never been to the country, dont know a single Russian, and dont speak a word of the language
Congrats! 👏 Well deserved. Your writing is clear , thoughtful and amazingly examines both the detailed military stuff and big picture both really well. The detailed military stuff (ie troop movements, military gear etc) typically isn't something I am naturally interested in, however you manage to make it "interesting" just enough to keep me from skipping past it in your pieces. THAT is a huge accomplishment in my books 😊
Congrats. I love your articles. Keep up the great work. I share you often and others likely do too.
Well deserved success which wouldn’t have happened if there were a lot of us like the reader you described. Continue on.
Bravo well done Simp very happy for you!
Well done. Glad you got that journalism thing off your chest. 🤯
You are doing an excellent job, do not pay attention to the trolls and CIA cruising the internet looking who to malign and bring down. Your success is because you are bringing us a complete set of news, everything except the weather in Russia !!!
Well done, very deserved!
Needs to be an option in the poll for more of everything! :)
Short daily updates plus longer pieces on a regular schedule?
Also love the Ukraine sitreps but also some more think pieces about the global changes to the world order as well as historical pieces for perspective.
I came to your Substack because of Alexander Mercouris praising you. And I am so glad I did. Your pieces are brilliant, including a lot of research. Let me suggest not to pay much attention to criticism and do as you wish. I hope to see your subscription numbers multiply. You do deserve it.
Thank you very much for your efforts... 👏
