Washington has lost Crimea. Instead of admitting that its plan for grabbing Ukraine has gone amiss, Washington is unable to admit a mistake and, therefore, is pushing the crisis to more dangerous levels. Russia, China, and Iran are in the way of Washington's hegemony and are targeted for attack. The attack on Russia is mounting
How does Washington get away with the claim that the country it rules is a democracy and has freedom? This absurd claim ranks as one of the most unsubstantiated claims in history. There is no democracy whatsoever. The US media consistently lies for the government. Not even Washington's stooges in Kiev believe that
The current US administration is not all together stupid, they can read public felling and sentiment. American people are tired of war and multitudes of wars. No other country in the world has been at war constantly since WWII, other than the US. When asked if Americans supported a US intervention in Ukraine - almost 60% opposed such a move
Not only is Middle East "Peace Envoy", Catholic convert and Butcher of Baghdad, Tony Blair gunning for another overthrow and mass destruction in Syria, he has recruited the son of an Archbishop to help him. Not any old Archbishop either, Blair's latest recruit is son of Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Primate of All England.
Let's look at the factors in the Syrian and Ukrainian crises. No one could deny that the Syrian civil war could have ended easily enough with a reconciliation between Russia and the West after Russia had been assured of its continued presence and its interests in Syria would remain unharmed. The West chose to ignore Russia's concerns over Syria
"In Ukraine, there is no information war. In Ukraine, there is information protection. In Russia, for some reason, they decided that they could dictate their will to Ukraine. In Russia, it is about time they should get used to the idea that Ukraine is a separate state, which decides what to do by itself,"a Ukrainian journalist told Pravda.Ru
April 4th marks the 65th anniversary since the creation of the North Atlantic Alliance (NATO) that was established to counter the "Soviet threat" after the Second World War. Today, the alliance consists of 28 countries, although only two or three states have combat-capable armies. Does the alliance have a future?
A turn to reactionary politics is nowhere more clearly seen than in a formerly independent voice moving away from criticism of the high and mighty towards attacks on little people. That is precisely what happened when Media Watch (the media watchdog of Australia's public broadcaster, the ABC) bought into the propaganda war on Syria.
U.S. President tried to convince the King of Saudi Arabia to coordinate actions in the oil market to reduce world oil prices, the main source of Russia's export revenues, and "punish its behavior" in Crimea. Experts estimate that if the prices are reduced by as little as 12 dollars per barrel, the Russian Federation will lose $40 billion in revenue
Recognizing the election as illegitimate, Russia still needs to establish relationship with the new president and the government. The following questions are important for Russia: who is funding the campaign of a presidential candidate? How does this person see the relationship with Russia? Who will be able to curb the radicals?
More verbiage, Russia has taken a "dark path"; Vice President Joe Biden said in Poland last week that those who rely on "aggression and fear" are bound to fail. Indeed, think Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, the overthrow of a democratically elected government in Iran, the gradual current slinking from Afghanistan after approaching a thirteen year reign of...
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry held an emergency meeting in Paris, during which they discussed the critical situation in Ukraine. Lavrov said after the four-hour meeting that Russia and the United States agreed to work with the Ukrainian government and the people to resolve the crisis in the country
Why did the U.S. have such a strong reaction to the historically conditioned annexation of Crimea to Russia?
