Who is fueling hysteria around Charlie Hebdo?

Along with the sweeping hysteria that has engulfed the world after the terrorist shooting at the editorial office of the prophane French magazine Charlie Hebdo, there is also a Nous ne sommes pas Charlie (“We Are Not Charlie”) movement that is now gaining ground in France: “In truth, who are the real suicide bombers in […]

By Vladimir KOZIN (Russia)

Who was shelling the city of Mariupol?

According to the Ministry of Defence of the Donetsk People’s Republic, the Ukranian Army has misinterpreted the column of its own 18th Batallion of the 28th Mechanized Brigade moving very close to Mariupol January 24th, 2015 as if it belonged to ‘separatists’ or de jure the DPR freedom fighters, and shelled it from the Stary […]

Auschwitz: where is the root of Polish guilt?

Auschwitz: where is the root of Polish guilt?

The statement by Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna, claiming that it was Ukrainians alone who allegedly liberated the prisoners from Auschwitz, needs no further comment. We’ll let that remark lie on its author’s conscience, as he seems to have “forgotten” about the thousands of his own countrymen who fought heroically against fascism as part of […]

The Russian-Chinese Strategic Partnership Strikes Israel

By Andrew KORYBKO (USA)

The Russian-Chinese Strategic Partnership Strikes Israel

Please read “Israel And The Multipolar Bag Of TRICs” beforehand for context With Turkey and India’s interactions with Israel out of the way, it’s now appropriate to focus solely on the intersection of Russian-Israeli-Chinese relations, no matter how unwilling of a participant Israel may be to this trilateral arrangement. As explained above, Israel is under […]

Israel And The Multipolar Bag Of TRICs

Israel And The Multipolar Bag Of TRICs

Israel is stereotypically thought of as a country that interacts mainly with the Western unipolar world (reinforced in part due to the country’s own unipolar attitude in the Mideast), but such an image isn’t entirely accurate. Although one may not realize it because of the mainstream media blackout on the topic, the multipolar-oriented states of […]

The Case For Bringing Syria Into The SCO

By Andrew KORYBKO (USA)

The Case For Bringing Syria Into The SCO

Syria is ground-zero in the battle between the Resistant & Defiant (R&D) multipolar states and the unipolar world, and the resolution of the conflict would therefore have enormous implications for both sides. Thus far, however, the only R&D states that have been offering substantial support to Damascus in its war on terror have been Russia […]

The New Global Economy: rise of China and decline of USA

By G. Asgar MITHA (Canada)

The New Global Economy: rise of China and decline of USA

There is a limit to economic manipulations by empires. All empires have perished due to economic hardships. The Ottoman, Soviet and the British empires were no exception in the past century. Waste was the key product of these empires. Whether the only empire – the US – understands it or not, the fact is that […]

A Royal shame: Abdullah leaves a legacy of regional militancy

A Royal shame: Abdullah leaves a legacy of regional militancy

King Abdullah is being eulogized in the most unrealistic ways possible, from CNN designating him as a “reformer” to Chuck Hagel calling him “a powerful voice for tolerance, moderation and peace — in the Islamic world and across the globe.” Israeli President Reuven Rivlin takes the cake, however, by proclaiming that “his smart policy contributed […]

Trolling Russia

By Israel SHAMIR (Russia)

Trolling Russia

The edifice of the post-1991 world order is collapsing right before our eyes. President Putin’s decision to give a miss to the Auschwitz pilgrimage, right after his absence in Paris at Charlie festival, gave it the last shove. It was good clean fun to troll Russia, as long as she stayed the course. Not anymore. Russia broke the rules. Until now, Russia, like a […]

Countering the NATO propaganda on Russia (I)

In December 2014 NATO released a factsheet on NATO-Russia relations covering more than 30 issues. The document was cooked according to the standard scheme elaborated by the US State Department – they take a Russian “false” assertion and dress it with a “correct” disclaimer. Taking this weapon in hand, our expert is throwing the alliance’s […]

Syrian Ambassador to the UN Bashar al-Ja’afari on Sovereignty, Terrorism, and the UN’ Kitchen
