Operation Tomahawk The Caliph

The Tomahawks are finally flying again – propelled by newspeak. 42 Tomahawks fired from a Sixth Fleet destroyer parked in Mare Nostrum, plus F-22s raising hell and Hellfires spouted by drones, that’s a neat mini-Shock and Awe to honor Caliph Ibrahim, aka Abu Bakr al -Baghdadi, self-declared leader of Islamic State. It’s all so surgical. […]

Operation Unthinkable: Churchill’s plan to start World War III

In the closing days of WW II, Winston Churchill came up with a bizarre plan for a joint British-American attack on the USSR. When told the Russians would bombard the UK on a massive scale, the British PM quietly backed off. On May 8, 1945, as people everywhere celebrated the end of World War II, […]

Democracy in Today’s America (I)

Who has more rights to human rights? Washington believes that one of the achievements of its propaganda and diplomatic machinery was that after a meeting in Helsinki in 1975, they managed to make the so-called «third basket» in the main placed emphasis on human rights. Decade after decade, the United States used the «third basket» […]

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s speech at the 43rd Munich Conference on Security Policy in 2007 where he charged the US with building a unipolar world at the cost of “frequently illegitimate actions” and “new human tragedies” is hardly forgotten by NATO. A key point that loomed through that energetic delivery by the Russian leader was […]

Geopolitics Behind the Great Victory

While talking of the great triumph over Nazis in World War II, discussing the global impact of the Soviet people’s victory, and saying that it irreversibly transformed the world, we often fail to appreciate the extent of heroism of Soviet soldiers and the proportions of the changes it helped to bring about… Obviously, the debates […]

As a reminder it limits the number of deployed strategic […]

The Plundering of Iraq’s National Museum: What Really Happened?

Yuliya CHMELENKO (Russia) We very often take in information without thinking about where it comes from or why it was produced. Unfortunately, that is the way things stand today with news of events in the Middle East—some things we hear about in distorted form, and some things we do not hear about at all. A […]

Outside Agitation In Kyrgyzstan

Peter CHAMBERLIN (USA) In Kyrgyzstan, we see the democratic-revolutionary counterpart to America’s “intelligence-driven wars”—rumor-driven confrontations. It can be clearly seen in the so-called “ethnic-conflict” in southern Kyrgyzstan, where ethnic and cultural differences are being amplified by unknown forces firing machine guns from untagged vehicles, young women and old ladies screaming or whispering the right phrases […]

The Histrionics of US Drug-Controlled Policy

Evgeny KHRUSCHEV (Russia) From plight to blight The US has launched a surreptitious germ warfare against the hard-working drug-farmers – or so claimed the narco-jihadist propaganda when a “mysterious” blight had suddenly struck the “good” part of the opium poppy fields on the eve of the harvest. A shot in the foot It doesn’t matter […]
