Who has shot down the Malaysian jet over Ukraine? (UPDATING)

On July 17, 2014 the madness of three-month-long Ukrainian military conflict in the East has brought the first shocking international consequence.  At 3.20PM GMT the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777-200 jet flight #MH17 en route from Amsterdam to Kuala-Lumpur disappeared inside the Ukrainian airspace right above the area of intense military combat in Donetsk region and crushed […]

A False Flag, or Fog of War over Ukraine?

A Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 bound for Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam was shot down in eastern Ukraine Thursday afternoon, killing all 298 passengers and crew. It was hit as it cruised at 33,000 feet above the war-ravaged Donetsk Oblast, 35 miles west from the Russian border. The airliner’s demise has the potential to escalate the […]

Twisted History Against Russia and Serbia

By Michael AVERKO (USA)

Twisted History Against Russia and Serbia

The June 20 Gray Falcon commentary “Failure to Communicate” has this excerpt, that led me to an extremely anti-Russian and anti-Serb article, from a venue which has previously slanted in that direction: “The latest example of this ‘flipping the script’ is a New Republic feature comparing Putin to Milosevic. In reality, it is the West acting […]

Why it’s OK to arm ‘MODERATE’ jihadists in Syria

Why it’s OK to arm ‘MODERATE’ jihadists in Syria

Twas bryllyg, and ye slythy toves Did gyre and gymble in ye wabe: All mimsy were ye borogoves; And ye mome raths outgrabe. (from Lewis Carroll’s ‘Jabberwocky’) I must admit that I was a little confused when I first heard that Barack Obama was looking for another 500 million dollars to arm rebels in Syria. […]

The Reverse Brzezinski: The Ultimate Eurasian Dilemma (II)

Part I Towards the Lead From Behind Strategy and Its Official Acceptance: Conventional (forceful) regime change strategies (Panama, Afghanistan, Iraq) were possible in a unipolar world, but with the unipolar moment fading, the US has been compelled to revive the Lead From Behind template first flirted with during the Soviet-Afghan War. The first official indication […]

The Reverse Brzezinski: The Ultimate Eurasian Dilemma (I)

By Andrew KORYBKO (USA)

The Reverse Brzezinski: The Ultimate Eurasian Dilemma (I)

Introduction: A global shift in US strategy is currently underway, with America transitioning from the ‘world policeman’ to the Lead From Behind mastermind. This fundamental shift essentially entails the US moving from a majority forward-operating military to a defensive stay-behind force. Part of this transformation is the reduction of the conventional military and its replacement […]

National Nihilism

By Mark HACKARD (USA)

National Nihilism

Strategies for full-spectrum dominance encompass far more than just military means – their entire point is found in politics, the struggle for power. Movements proclaiming themselves the champions of national salvation thus deserve extra scrutiny, since they might serve precisely the opposite end. Ever since a US-backed junta seized control of Ukraine in February, the […]

Ethnic and cultural cleansing in Ukraine

On the centennial anniversary of “Russophilic” individuals (Rusyns) from modern-day Ukraine being sent to concentration camps, history appears set to once again repeat itself. The Ukrainian Defense Minister has publicly voiced his plan to corral the citizens of Donbass into special “filtration” camps prior to forcibly resettling them in different parts of Ukraine. A few […]

Ukraine: Is There a Chance for De-escalation?

Ukraine: Is There a Chance for De-escalation?

The situation in Ukraine is a high priority for U.S.-Russian relations on both sides of the Atlantic. At the same time, the election of Petro Poroshenko as the new president of Ukraine, who has publicly stated that he does not plan to cease the “anti-terrorist” operation in eastern Ukraine, does not give much hope that […]

Sikorski and Dziewulski: The Strategy and Tactics of the Neo-Commonwealth

As the war in the southeast of (former) Ukraine rages on, more proof is emerging of active Polish participation there. This participation has thus far been indirect (i.e. no official Polish military units), although this does not mean that it is no less lethal. Not only has Poland been complicit in training urban terrorists in […]

Elections in Syria: The People Say No to Foreign Intervention

By Ajamu BARAKA (USA)

Elections in Syria: The People Say No to Foreign Intervention

Defying threats of violence, tens of thousands of ordinary Syrians went to the polls to cast a vote that was more about Syrian dignity and self-determination than any of the candidates on the ballot. After three years of unimaginable atrocities fomented by a demented and dying U.S. empire, with the assistance of the royalist monarchies […]

International observers endorse Syrian elections

International observers endorse Syrian elections

Syria’s first multi-candidate presidential election in more than 40 years has begun earlier today. Facing strong and mostly hypocritical critisism from the West, the poll is about to demonstrate the real scale of public support President Assad is enjoying inside the country, heroically resisting foreign-sponsored aggression for more than three years. Expected pro-Assad voting in […]

The Lessons and Consequences of World War I: Back to the Future? (II)

By Andrew KORYBKO (USA)

The Lessons and Consequences of World War I: Back to the Future? (II)

Part I PART II: CONSEQUENCES Dark Horses These are the unintended consequences that occur due to grand manipulations and plans gone awry. They are impossible to accurately predict, and they may only sometimes seem expected in hindsight. Dark horses are the wild cards that surprisingly alter the dynamic at play and bring about a change […]
