The Real Story about Ukraine

Recent history about Ukraine, as portrayed by the mainstream media, is far from accurate, not to say that it is totally wrong. Thankfully, honest video and film producers still exist and are able to document what the Establishment does not want the public to learn about their plans and modus operandi. What happened in Ukraine is, well, the same thing that happens to small defenseless nations: They are toyed ...Read full article...

Neither Hamas nor Israel

The deaths of Israelis by Hamas or of Palestinians by Israel must be strongly rejected. Three realities are true in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Firstly, people in Gaza are hostages of Hamas, a terrorist organization that uses Palestinians as shields to provoke anger in Israel. Secondly, Israel’s government is populated with genocidal leaders who do not care about killing Palestinians. Thirdly, Israel is an invading force, in the middle of ...Read full article...

Space is the next great War frontier

The notion of real-time star wars, possibly with nukes and/or other super-weapons, should terrify everyone. The 1967 Outer Space Treaty bans nations from placing WMDs (not conventional weapons) in earth orbit or otherwise in outer space. It restricts use of celestial bodies to peaceful purposes, bans space bases and outer space weapons testing. The 1963 Limited Test Ban Treaty prohibits nuclear testing in outer space. The 1972 SALT I ...Read full article...

Will Latin America survive Venezuela’s coming war?

The crisis which is destabilising Venezuela, like those which are beginning in Nicaragua and Haïti, need to be analysed in order to enable us to address it. We analyse at least three interpretative hypotheses, the US strategy and the ways in which it may be countered. Today, Venezuela is divided between two legitimacies – that of Constitutional President Nicolas Maduro and that of the President of the National Assembly, ...Read full article...

The US Congress is preparing a new war against Syria

We were wrong to think that the Syrians were out of danger after their victory over the jihadists. They are not Israël and the United States have not abandoned their war objective of the destruction of state structures. They are preparing a new war, this time financial, in order to prevent the reconstruction of the country and condemn the Syrian people to rot in the ruins. In Washington, the ...Read full article...

Why is the United States suddenly withdrawing from Syria?

The US Air Force is condemned to defeat if it confronts the Syrian Arab Army, which now has in its possession Russian anti-air materials, the best in the world. The US’s only viable option is to leave, sparing itself any humiliation. History is repeating itself. Once before, in Iraq, the United States had used Kurdish combattants, promising them a State before letting them be massacred by Saddam Hussein. Today ...Read full article...

Extensive Russian and Allied War Games in response to US-NATO

Barely reported by the Western media, Russia has launched a series of war games in Europe and the Far East together with several of its allies.  These war games are largely in response to NATO’s military buildup on Russia’s Western frontier, in Eastern Europe, The Baltic States and Scandinavia. They also coincide with Donald Trump’s decision to repeal the 1987 INF agreement signed between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. The Intermediate Nuclear Force Treaty (INF), ...Read full article...

All international problems are suspended, awaiting the US mid-term elections

The partisans of the old international order are gambling on a change of majority in Congress and a rapid destitution of President Trump. If the man in the White House holds fast, the protagonists of the war against Syria will have to admit defeat and move on to other battle fields. On the other hand, if Donald Trump should lose the elections, the war on Syria will immediately be ...Read full article...

The Trump administration and Iran

Like President Reagan, President Trump seems to be anti-Iranian. But perhaps this is only in appearance. While the former drew up a secret alliance with Imam Khomeiny, the latter may be dealing with ex-President Ahmadinejad in the same way. n 16 August 2018, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the creation of the « Iran Action Group » tasked with coordinating US policies after their withdrawal from the 5+1 ...Read full article...

What if Russia were declared a State sponsor of Terror?

Would such a declaration open the flood gates for a full military attack against Russia by the United States or its allies? Russophobic undemocratic Dems and likeminded Republicans want Pompeo to decide whether the State Department should designate Russia a state sponsor of terrorism. The idea is unlikely to gain majority support, but proposing it is another example of how low what passes for governance in Washington has sunk ...Read full article...

Israel Heads Toward Terror War on Gaza

Israel holds Gazans hostage under an illegal blockade since mid-2007 – unrelated to security issues, solely for political reasons.  The Netanyahu regime conducts cross-border incursions and terror-bombs the Strip at its discretion – naked aggression with impunity. The latest terror-bombing incidents came overnight into Saturday daylight hours, following another day of Israeli attacks on peaceful Great March of Return demonstrators. Multiple Strip targets were terror-bombed. The IDF said 60, ...Read full article...

Russia the World’s Dominant Military Power

Russia, not America, is the world’s dominant military superpower, a reality not going down well in Washington. In March, Putin explained Russia’s technological superiority to America and the West – its formidable weapons enough to give Washington pause about attacking the country. Moscow’s advanced weapons outmatch the Pentagon’s best. They include: • a 200-ton Sarmat ICBM able to successfully breach ABM defenses; • a low-flying stealth nuclear-powered cruise missile ...Read full article...

If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal

Western societies offer proof that voting is meaningless, or that when it really challenges power, power makes it meaningless.  Democracy the way it should be is pure fantasy in most countries, notably in America, Europe and Israel – neoliberal harshness triumphing over social justice. Redoubtable political/social activist Emma Goldman (1869 – 1940) once explained: “If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.” George Bernard Shaw once said “(d)emocracy is ...Read full article...

Russia opposed to a war between Iran and Israel

Although for the most part, observers are taking sides in the Russo-US conflict and hoping for the victory of their camp, Moscow is attempting to calm the atmosphere in the Middle East. It is therefore opposed to an attack on Israël by Iran, just as it was opposed to an Israëli operation against Iran in 2008. sraël fired nine missiles against two Syrian military bases in the night of ...Read full article...

Western powers are only “the best” in matters of falsehood

When they want to condemn a suspect, the Western powers accuse him of all sorts of crimes until they’re ready to pronounce sentence. Truth and Justice have no say in the matter, the only thing that counts is their power. Let’s take another look at the accusation of the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Thierry Meyssan reminds us that although that particular case is only a few years ...Read full article...
