The six major world powers approach the reorganization of international relations according to their experiences and dreams. Prudently, they intend to defend their interests first before promoting their vision of the world. Thierry Meyssan describes their respective positions before the fight begins.

Algeria

Bomb Algeria Into Democracy?

The Algerian government has offered a compromise: Bouteflika runs for the presidency now for the last time as a symbol of stability with his cadence limited for one year only. Later another elections are held without pressure from barricades and Molotov’s. Though it seems that the funds have already been disbursed between the captains of the future uprising, so the show must go on.

Austria EU Summit

Secession From The European Union

Belgium NATO Summit

Europe Cringes Before Emperor Trump

Trump lectured and scolded the heads of NATO on live TV. They took the verbal thrashing like truant schoolboys.

Since 2012, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and the federal think-tank SWP have been working directly on behalf of the US deep state for the destruction of the country.

Europe stands up to US presure

Will Europe Stand Up To American Pressure?

Europe cannot cave in to US pressure, but it cannot realistically break ties with Washington when rejecting it, much less lay a claim to the mantle of global leadership.

To achieve this, Europe needs to develop a more favorable balance of forces and interests.

Europe has rebelled
