Seventy-four years have passed since the atomic bombing of peaceful Japanese cities, and humanity’s horror at the nightmare of this weapon remains acute. That horror is now one of the reasons why no country in the world can employ nuclear weapons against anyone without being punished. In that sense, the victims of Hiroshima did not suffer in vain.
The short-term military conflict between Russia and Georgia started on August 8, 2008 after Georgian forces launched an attack against the self-proclaimed Republic of South Ossetia and a contingent of Russian peacekeepers who remained in the region on a license from the Commonwealth of Independent States political bloc. Russia’s military […]
We are ending the publication of the section of Thierry Meyssan’s book « Right Before Our Eyes » which deals with the Muslim Brotherhood. In this episode, the Brotherhood, with Daesh, realises its dream to re-establish the Caliphate. Thus the first terrorist state managed to function for two years – with the help of the Western powers.
The seizures of vessels constitute a recipe for a tit-for-tat calamity. We are already seeing the bitter fruit of the harvest arising out of the seizure of Grace I. Two oil tankers – the UK registered Stena Impero, and the Mesdar, another Liberian registered vessel though British operated – were subsequently seized in the Strait of Hormuz.
After three years of relative withdrawal from the international scene, Turkey has specified its direction. While still remaining a member of the NATO it intends to express its independence, integrate the minorities on a national basis and fight the elements which are under the orders of the United States.
Today the world has captured a second chance to revive the “great dream” that has taken the form of the New Silk Road. If western nations wish to survive the oncoming collapse, then they would do well to join this new framework rather than transform the dying remains of Bretton Woods into a “Green New Deal”.
We are continuing the publication of Thierry Meyssan’s new book, « Right Before Our Eyes ». In this episode, the luck of the draw changes hands. US-Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was overthrown in the wake of gigantic demonstrations, while the invasion of Damascus failed.
There is bound to be an initial boost in expenditure and testing on weapons that would have otherwise been banned by the INF. A mini-arms race is in the offing: to each its degree of deserving lunacy. There will also be, if the views of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg are anything to go by, an increased emphasis on improving missile defences.
Contrary to the popular belief, the bloodiest trade in history when organs were taken away from captured and imprisoned Kosovo Serbs, did not begin in Kosovo, but in Croatia.
According to Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the British opposition, US President Donald Trump’s support for Boris Johnson to become prime minister was an unacceptable interference in the country’s internal affairs. “The next prime minister should be chosen not by the US president […] but by the British people”.
The recent revelations about the attacks which took place in Barcelona and Cambrils in 2017 – like those concerning the previous attack in Madrid in 2004 – pose exactly the same legitimate questions as those formulated in other countries about other attacks. Why, everywhere, do the Islamist terrorists appear to be linked to NATO?
It may well be a finding of some implication should Julian Assange find his way into the beastly glory that is the US justice system. In its efforts to rope in President Donald Trump’s election campaign, Wikileaks, Assange and the Russian Federation for hacking the computers of the Democratic National […]
