Did Russia’s Intervention Derail Turkey’s Plan to Invade Syria?
15.10.15 19:38

Middle East

Thousands of Iranian soldiers have arrived in Syria to join a major offensive against Sunni militants located in the northwest section of the country. The Iranian ground forces will be part of a joint operation that will include the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Russia and fighters from Lebanese militia, Hezbollah. The assault comes on the heels of a withering two week aerial bombardment of enemy positions by the Russian Air Force which has wreaked havoc on US-backed jihadis along the western corridor. The mobilization of Iranian troops indicates that the 4 year-long conflict is entering its final phase where the Russian-led coalition will attempt to crush the predominantly-Sunni militias and restore security across the country

The CIA and the Media: 50 Facts the World Needs to Know
01.09.15 20:25

Global Security

Since the end of World War Two the Central Intelligence Agency has been a major force in US and foreign news media, exerting considerable influence over what the public sees, hears and reads on a regular basis. CIA publicists and journalists alike will assert they have few, if any, relationships, yet the seldom acknowledged history of their intimate collaboration indicates a far different story–indeed, one that media historians are reluctant to examine

The current developments in the Greater Middle East provoke many experts and analysts to reflect their genuine nature, since this the most important subregion reaches a point of bifurcation after which it would hardly be affordable to turn the flow back.

Trump’s Triumph: Billionaire Blowhard Exposes Fake Political System
08.08.15 17:59

Global Security

Last night’s FOX News GOP Presidential Debate Extravaganza featured the most riveting two minute political exchange ever heard on national television. During a brief colloquy between Republican frontrunner Donald Trump and Fox moderator Brett Baier, the pugnacious casino magnate revealed the appalling truth about the American political system, that the big money guys like Trump own the whole crooked contraption lock, stock, and barrel, and that, the nation’s fake political leaders do whatever they’re told to do. Without question, it was most illuminating commentary to ever cross the airwaves. Here’s the entire exchange direct from the transcript

Global Security

The Chinese state news agency Xinhua signaled in a major commentary on Monday that Beijing views the new Taliban leadership of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor in a positive light. The salience of the commentary, entitled “New Afghan Taliban chief keeps hope alive for Pakistan-brokered Talks”, lies in three intertwined estimations.

Greece and the Crisis of International Capital
11.07.15 09:48

Economics

In terms both gratuitous and sadly predictable, last week’s ‘no’ vote in Greece was followed by insistence from the Troika, led by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, that the Greek government accept economic ‘reforms’ likely to be even more onerous than those that preceded the vote or face a quick exit from the European Monetary Union (Grexit). With long precedence of capitulation to Troika demands by center-left Social Democrat governments across Europe, now apparently joining this macabre dance is Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipris who, only days after winning consent from the Greek people to take on the Troika, is said to be offering more austerity in exchange for ‘face-saving’ cuts in unpayable levels of deb

Ukraine and the Apocalyptic Risk of Propagandized Ignorance

Global Security

I’m not sure if there’s been a better written book published yet this year than Ukraine: Zbig’s Grand Chessboard and How the West Was Checkmated, but I’m confident there’s not been a more important one. With some 17,000 nuclear bombs in the world, the United States and Russia have about 16,000 of them. The United States is aggressively flirting with World War III, the people of the United States have not the foggiest notion of how or why, and authors Natylie Baldwin and Kermit Heartsong explain it all quite clearly. Go ahead and tell me there’s nothing you’re now spending your time on that’s less important than this

Can Syria Survive?

Middle East

It’s a dangerous equation in the Syrian war that the further you are from Damascus, the more Bashar al-Assad’s regime seems doomed. And the more you drive around the vast area still held by government forces – and I’ve just completed around 1,100 miles of mountains, desert and battle fronts – the more you realise that the war will go on

Latest horrible ceasefire violations in Donbass by the Kiev’s regime are likely intended to demonstrate the “inefficiency” of the OSCE mission to its Western patrons and are evidence of Ukraine’s attempts to circumvent the jurisdiction of the Minsk truce co-brokered by Russia, Germany, and France
