Crimeans Vote on Joining Russia

Ahead of the vote, John Kerry and Sergei Lavrov met in London. US pressure to get Russia to accept US demands failed. Both nations are geopolitical opposites. Washington demands its way or else. Kerry called Russia’s endorsing the right of Crimeans to secede “a backdoor annexation of Crimea.” He demands it remain part of Ukraine. He ignores the right of sovereign people to choose their future freely. He wants ...Read full article...

Germany’s Chancellor Merkel, An Instrument of Washington

Washington, enabled by its compliant but stupid NATO puppets, is pushing the Ukrainian situation closer to war. German Chancellor Merkel has failed her country, Europe, and world piece.  Germany is the strength of the EU and NATO.  Had Merkel said “No” to sanctions on Russia, that would have been the end of the crisis that Washington is brewing, a crisis unlikely to be ended short of war. But Merkel ...Read full article...

Obama and Kiev promise ‘war’ against Moscow

U.S. President Barack Obama has called on Russia to reverse course on the path taken in the crisis in Ukraine because, otherwise, there will be consequences. His statement came in the midst of Obama’s meeting with the Ukrainian Acting Minister, Arseniy Yatseniuk, who also promised that Kiev would not “surrender” to Moscow. Obama hosted Yatseniuk at the White House as a sign of U.S. support towards the new Ukrainian government, whose ...Read full article...

Israel Changes its Laws to Limit Arab Membership in Parliament

In a growing climate of political polarization, the Israeli coalition government led by the conservative Benjamin Netanyahu, won approval Tuesday in parliament for a new law increasing the threshold of electoral representation from the current 2% to 3.25%. After this reform, the composition of the Parliament would leave out two Arab parties as well as the centrist Kadima, founded by the late Ariel Sharon, who won elections in 2006 and 2009. This new electoral ...Read full article...

Russia does not bend against the West

How screwed up can the world be when Russia, with its best version of the unfaltering iron fist, seems to make more sense than Europe or the United States? After decades of unilateral governance from the United States, suddenly, the US, the EU and NATO found a rogue nation that has said “enough with the bullying”. The 21st century has seen an American military escalation in Asia with the sole ...Read full article...

Crisis in Ukraine: It’s the Missile Shield Stupid!

The manufactured crisis in Ukraine is another American attempt to encircle Russia by installing another Missile Shield System near the Russian border. Ukraine could become a new U.S. stronghold around Russia should its government – handpicked and supported by Washington – decide to host a missile shield system on its territory in exchange for financial support from the United States. According to the Ukrainian ambassador in Minsk, Mikhail Yezhel, a new Ukrainian ...Read full article...

European Union wants more control over the Governance of its members

Europe has adopted several policies to control large economic practices all over the continent, but lacks mechanisms to control the governance of many of its member nations. On Tuesday, the European Commission agreed to boost a method for detecting behavior contrary to its own understanding of the rule of law and to punish violators if necessary. This is, Brussels argues, to avoid authoritarian excesses of its Member States, especially ...Read full article...

Washington’s Hegemonic Ambitions in Ukraine: Sleepwalking Again into A Destructive Conflict

On the 100th Anniversary of World War 1, the Western powers are again sleepwalking into destructive conflict. Hegemonic ambition has Washington interfering in the internal affairs of Ukraine, but developments seem to be moving beyond Washington’s control. Regime change in Ukraine for a mere $5 billion dollars would be a bargain compared to the massive sums squandered in Iraq ($3,000 billion), Afghanistan ($3,000 billion), Somalia, and Libya, or the ...Read full article...

European Union to impose Sanctions on Ukraine

Western forces have been at the very least fueling the conflict in Ukraine. These very same forces are ironically prepared to impose hefty sanctions against that country after the latest street protests in which police have faced different protest camps around Kiev. The not so secret intervention in internal conflict seems to be the modus operandi of the US and Europe as it has been seen in the Middle ...Read full article...

Russia Under Attack. “Neocon Ideologues are Pushing the World toward Destruction”

In a number of my articles I have explained that the Soviet Union served as a constraint on US power. The Soviet collapse unleashed the neoconservative drive for US world hegemony. Russia under Putin, China, and Iran are the only constraints on the neoconservative agenda. Russia’s nuclear missiles and military technology make Russia the strongest military obstacle to US hegemony. To neutralize Russia, Washington broke the Reagan-Gorbachev agreements and ...Read full article...

Washington Orchestrated Protests Are Destabilizing Ukraine

The protests in the western Ukraine are organized by the CIA, the US State Department, and by Washington- and EU-financed Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) that work in conjunction with the CIA and State Department. The purpose of the protests is to overturn the decision by the independent government of Ukraine not to join the EU. The US and EU were initially cooperating in the effort to destroy the independence of ...Read full article...

Cold War Geopolitics in Sochi

Western Media “Bashes” Vladimir Putin On February 6, the XXII Olympic Winter Games began. A geopolitically tense atmosphere prevails. Security is extremely tight. It’s a virtual armed camp. Measures in place are unprecedented. Around $2 billion was spent on security. Ahead of February 6, around 23,000 personnel assured proper measures were in place as planned. Tens of thousands of police officers are deployed. They’re backed by helicopters, drones, gunboats, ...Read full article...

Washington Destabilizes Ukraine

The control freaks in Washington think that only the decisions that Washington makes and imposes on other sovereign countries are democratic. No other country on earth is capable of making a democratic decision. The world has witnessed this American self- righteousness for eons as Washington overthrows one democratic government after the other and imposes its puppet, as Washington did in Iran in 1953 when the CIA, as it now ...Read full article...

Palestinian Authority accepts a transition period of three years during peace negotiations

In one of his major concessions in this round of the peace process initiated in July, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Tuesday he would accept an Israeli military presence in a future sovereign and independent State, for a period of three years. “Whoever proposes a transition period of 10 or 15 years does not really want to retreat,” Abbas said in an interview played Tuesday at a security conference. ...Read full article...
