Last week the leaders of Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay, and Peru created the so-called “Forum for the Progress of South America”, or “Prosur”, in what many observers understood to be a replacement for the ailing and internally divided mid-2000s “Pink Tide” bloc of Unasur that formerly united the continent […]
The Mainstream Media promotes the narrative of a Russian military intervention in Venezuela in order to fearmonger about Moscow’s global intentions and justify more robust US action there, while the Alternative Media is misleadingly portraying these events as supposed proof that Russia “saved” Venezuela.
The Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova acknowledged in Moscow on Tuesday that Russian “specialists” are indeed in Venezuela within the ambit of a 2001 military-technical cooperation agreement with Caracas. Zakharova underscored that Russia’s bilateral military cooperation with Venezuela is in accordance with the latter’s constitution and has legal underpinning, which […]
The US accused Cuba and Russia of “undermining democracy” in Venezuela. Pompeo said very derogatory things about the South American country’s two allies, including accusing Cuba of being “the true imperialist power” and “communist overlords” while alleging that Russia’s resource and mineral trade with Venezuela amounts to Moscow’s partner being […]
Part of the genius behind the “Fortress America” concept is that it gives the US the ultimate geostrategic redoubt upon which to rely in the event that its divide-and-rule machinations in the Eastern Hemisphere blow back against it and eventually result in diminishing the Pentagon’s presence in the other half of the world.
The new Salvadoran president promised to reassess relations with China. The secretary general of President-elect Nayib Bukele’s New Ideas party told his countrymen that their new leader will reconsider his government’s relations with China, which it surprisingly recognized last August after breaking relations with long-term ally Taiwan in exchange for […]
The crisis which is destabilising Venezuela, like those which are beginning in Nicaragua and Haïti, needs to be analysed in order to enable us to address it. Thierry Meyssan reminds us of three interpretative hypotheses and argues in favour of one of them. He evokes the US strategy and the ways in which it may be countered.
Has President Donald Trump abandoned the idea of transforming US politics? Over the last two months, his administration seems to have restructured AfriCom, CentCom and SouthCom, that have been authorised to join the battle against Chinese projects on the African continent, divide the Greater Middle East between Arabs and Persians, and destroy the State structures of the Caribbean Basin. These new missions are accompanied by a return of the neo-conservatives.
Right now the Venezuelan people find themselves locked into a vicious cycle of ill-conceived human systems collapsing into violent in-fighting, in the face of the earth system crisis erupting beneath them. It is not yet too late for the rest of the world to learn a lesson. Venezuela should function as a warning sign as to what can happen when we bury our heads in the (oil) sands.
Venezuela’s economic fundamentals are very weak after years of withstanding the US’ Hybrid War onslaught, so it might not even take all that much to throw the country into a qualitatively new level of crisis that could ultimately lead to its collapse. The chances of regime change taking place in Venezuela are higher than at any time before.
Borders and walls are a symbol of domination and exploitation, but the same could be said of the “frontier” in all its forms. US companies or multinational corporations with American interests provide their services worldwide while selectively blocking some countries, imposing sanctions on others, denying access, and carrying out other preventive measures.
The Bolivarian Republic is experiencing an unprecedented crisis after the US and many of its Latin American allies from the so-called “Lima Group” recognized Juan Guaidó as the country’s “interim president”. The 35-year-old head of the National Assembly seemingly came out of nowhere in his meteoric rise to power and […]
