Middle East and Asia Geopolitics: Shift in Military Alliances?

A profound shift in geopolitical alliances is occurring which tends to undermine US hegemony in the broader Middle East Central Asian region as well as in South Asia.  Several of America’s staunchest allies have “changed sides”. Both NATO and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) are in crisis. Turkey and NATO NATO is characterized by profound divisions,  largely resulting from Ankara’s confrontation with Washington. Turkey –which constitutes NATO’s heavyweight– is now ...Read full article...

Yemen decimated by Cholera, Hunger and War

In Yemen, the cholera epidemic is out of control. It already affects 300,000 people while 1,700 Yemenis have lost their lives. The current epidemic is the culmination of a catastrophic situation, which includes a plunge into a war – for more than two years – since March 2015. Civil confrontation faces pro-government forces and Hutu rebels. This battle cannot be understood in its amplitude without taking into account the ...Read full article...

Yemen Faces Social, Economic and Political Collapse

Yemen is dying. Obama’s war, now Trump’s, complicit with Saudi Arabia, is destroying the nation, killing it. Millions of its citizens suffer from endless war, related blockade, untreated diseases, starvation and overall deprivation – US-sponsored genocide, Saudi terror-bombing doing its dirty work. Stephen O’Brien is UN Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator. Issuing a statement on what’s ongoing, he said “the situation on the ground has continued to spiral ...Read full article...

Trump advances his Pawns

President Trump is taking to convince his allies and partners to drop the jihadists that they support, arm, and supervise. Contrary to the picture painted by the international Press and its political adversaries, for the last four months, the White House has been pursuing an anti-imperialist policy which is beginning to bear fruit: the process of the cessation of Saudi support for the Muslim Brotherhood, the end of the ...Read full article...

EU Imposing More Illegal Sanctions on Syria

Sanctions on Syria since Obama’s naked aggression began hurt ordinary people most. Imposing them without Security Council authorization is illegal. Syria is being raped and destroyed, though contesting valiantly with vital Russia, Iranian and Hezbollah help. President Bashar al-Assad enjoys overwhelming support. Yet US-led Western propaganda viciously misportrays him as a brutal dictator. I support him and his liberating mission – to free his country from the scourge of ...Read full article...

Can a World War still be avoided?

Events around the Syrian crisis are accelerating, and reveal the depth of the conflict between the Atlantist camp and the Russo-Chinese block. After having observed the growing risk of a generalised war – conventional or even nuclear – Thierry Meyssan analyses the manœuvres of the United States and Russia’s responses to them. After the destruction of the pride of the Emirati Navy on 1 October, the armies of the ...Read full article...

US and French Warplanes Massacre Civilians in Syria

It seems that terrorism is bad only when it kills westerners, but not when Syrians are murdered. Rogue states like France, other NATO nations, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and regional ones allied with America’s imperial project represent the greatest threat to world peace – committing genocidal high crimes in waging war on humanity. Syria’s Foreign Ministry repeatedly appeals in vain to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and rotating Security Council ...Read full article...

US-Supported Terrorists Attack UN Humanitarian Convoy in Syria

A quick check spotted no scoundrel media reports – ready to falsely accuse Syrian and Russian forces of attacking civilian targets, virtually always carried out by US-backed terrorists. Syria’s conflict rages, peaceful resolution unattainable because Washington wants war, another country raped and destroyed, added to its trophy list – remaining unaccountable for genocidal crimes. According to Russia’s Defense Ministry, US-backed Jaysh al-Islam (Army of Islam) terrorists shelled a UN ...Read full article...

The drop in Oil Prices upsets the Geopolitical Chessboard

The drop in oil prices has given the lie to the «Hubbert peak» theory. There will probably not be a penury of energy in the coming century. The price decrease is also probably the first step in dismantling the «human origin of global warming» theory. It has deprived the alternative sources of energy of any validity, as well as investments in hydrocarbons from shale and deep-water drilling. It has ...Read full article...

Memorial Day Hypocrisy

America is a warrior state, a serial aggressor, unaccountable for unparalleled high crimes against peace because of public ignorance and indifference. Americans are sublimely unaware of their nation’s history. Its so-called war of independence substituted new management for old. Everything changed but stayed the same. Civil war had nothing to do with freeing slaves, everything to do with keeping the nation intact, maintaining business as usual. Imperial America enslaved ...Read full article...

9/11 Disinformation: Saudi Arabia Attacked America

The forever changing 9/11 story is entering a new phase. Blame is being transferred from Osama bin Laden to the Saudi Arabian government. There are 28 pages classified secret of a congressional inquiry into 9/11 that allegedly found Saudi financial support for the alleged 9/11 hijackers. Neither the George W. Bush nor the Obama regimes would release the classified pages. Only a few members of Congress have been permitted ...Read full article...

Fantasy Ceasefire in Aleppo

Since announced in late February, ceasefire has been more fantasy than real. Conflict rages in key parts of Syria. Washington, NATO, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and their rogue state allies continue supporting ISIS and other terrorist groups, facilitating the passage of thousands of death squad killers into Syria, arming, training and directing them. Ceasefire and peace are unattainable under these conditions. John Kerry said Assad he has until August 1 ...Read full article...

Mattis versus Trump

While the media treat the US primaries as if they were a competition between Trump and Cruz on one side, and Clinton and Sanders on the other, a whole machinery is now being set in motion to block the real estate promoter, who is threatening the interests of the WASP ruling class. In this article, Thierry Meyssan exposes the stakes which, for the moment, no-one has mentioned publicly. The ...Read full article...

Russia and Victory

The announcement of the partial withdrawal of the Russian Army from Syria has spawned a great number of commentaries which illustrate the preconceived bias of their authors rather than reality. Thierry Meyssan points out that the facts demonstrate not only that the differences between Moscow and Damascus have been resolved, but that Russia – which managed to topple the Western powers into the anti-terrorist camp – intends to allow ...Read full article...

Towards a new war in Lebanon

Lebanon has not been respecting its own constitution since May 2008, and no longer has a budget reserve. The country today is essentially adrift, and has once again become an easy prey for Israël. The failure of the operation against Syria has forced the colonial parties to seek a new target. While a second civil war can still be avoided, it will be difficult to avoid a new invasion. ...Read full article...
