Since September 2014, NATO pilots have made several thousand sorties targeting Islamic State objects, according to the information published by the US Congress the day before Russia has joined the operation in Syria. Still, in the entire year after the start of their airstrikes, the US failed to achieve any success. IS terrorists just keep...
The Labour Party was founded on Methodism and Marxism, so the saying goes. The problem for Jeremy Corbyn and his left wing team is that these two ideologies (namely Christianity and political education) have been declining since the beginning of the 20th Century and especially since the end of the 70s.
Vietnam 2.0 is in the making in Ukraine. The US civil-military establishment want a shooting war with Russia, even though it was the US that caused the carnage in Ukraine, not the Russians. Yet, that inconvenient reality has been nullified by the US propaganda campaign which, of course, the Russians have responded to with their own
Anton Gerashchenko, Adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, believes that the Russian military involved in the anti-terrorist operation in Syria, should be "punished according to Shariah laws."
Commenting on the information about the incident on the border with Turkey, when airplanes of the Russian Air Force incidentally entered Turkish airspace, military experts remind of numerous incidents of massive violations of airspace by NATO member countries.

The general consensus after Sunday's Portuguese parliamentary elections is that the right-wing coalition should form a government because it was the largest electoral formation, but without a majority. But things may not be as easy as they seem at first sight.
Today, if polled most if not all of the world's citizens would choose money as the item that was most in short supply. Don't think many Americans would argue with the poll results either. In today's global economy, how could anyone, especially ordinary working class persons argue to the contrary.
On Sunday October 4 the Portuguese go to the polling stations to choose their next government, the front-runners being the incumbent right-wing coalition (PSD-Social Democrats/CDS-PP-Conservatives), ahead of the largest opposition party, the (also right-wing) PS (Partido Socialista). Which way will it go and what does the future hold?
There is no military solution to the Syrian crisis. The Syrian army, in its current state, is capable of destroying any city. Yet, this is not the goal for the Syrian leadership. The Syrian administration wants to solve the crisis by political means. A war in this case is a tool to create conditions for a political settlement
In spite of the fact that the Cold War is over, it is quite clear that the alliances like NATO and the EU are likely following an agenda to isolate Russia. This motive became clearer with the start of the Syrian war and the Ukrainian crisis. Rumors that spread in the media of Russia's military expansion in Syria escalated tension in the West
The influx of refugees to the European Union continues and does not seem to come to an end. The responsibility for this humanitarian catastrophe largely lies on the shoulders of Saudi Arabia, the USA and Qatar. The EU pays for the crisis, whereas Turkey is taking advantage of the large-scale tragedy
The Greek election confirmed the trend, a divorce between the people and the elites or hierarchies which to date have controlled them. The Internet has brought with it new systems of learning, of lateral thinking and has highlighted the individual quest over the acceptance to receive orders. To what point will this create a social revolution?
The UK has been following the US obediently since the 1960s. For 500 years, the UK leadership was known for its anti-Russian positions. This is a tradition, and the British are a conservative nation. However, the British Labour Party has a new leader now - Jeremy Corbyn, who sympathizes with Vladimir Putin and supports Britain's exit from NATO
