Syria’s Civil War Is Almost Over… And Assad Has Won By Patrick Cockburn

10 March 2017 — Strategic Culture Foundation

Winners and losers are emerging in what may be the final phase of the Syrian civil war as anti-Isis forces prepare for an attack aimed at capturing Raqqa, the de facto Isis capital in Syria. Kurdish-led Syrian fighters say they have seized part of the road south of Raqqa, cutting Isis off from other its territory further east.

Storm Warning for Merkel

16.01.2016 | 08:00 | Dmitriy SEDOV

It is difficult to avoid the impression that the «sexual terror» that took place on New Year in Cologne and a number of other German cities was organised by somebody very clever. Regardless of how much the «terror» was actually «sexual», the whole of Germany reacted to the incident extremely excitedly and the focus of the protests seemed to be directed against Merkel…

America’s Subservience to Saud Family

09.01.2016 | 00:00 | Eric ZUESSE

The Saud royal family are by far the world’s largest buyers of US weapons. The King of Saudi Arabia is by far the world’s richest person, with a net worth well over a trillion dollars; and, when his (Aramco’s) 260 billion barrels of oil reserves were valued at $100 per barrel, his net worth was over $15 trillion. The King has total control over the world’s largest (in terms of dollar-value) company: Aramco. Since 1980, the Saudi government has owned 100% of it; the Saudi government is totally under the King’s exclusive control…

Democracy or Entertainment for the Masses?

02.01.2016 | 00:00 | Matthew JAMISON

I have always found American politics far more exciting, consequential and charismatic than British politics. This is in part due to the status of the United States among the democracies of the world as the leading Superpower. The world has for almost 70 years turned on the American axis. Yet, it is more than just power with a capital P. The United States – politically, aesthetically and culturally – is a far more vibrant and glamorous country than Britain, and thanks to the creative power and influence of the American entertainment industry with its citadel of Hollywood, churns out American politicos who run political campaigns as if they were producing blockbuster movies…

Syria: Has Anyone Stepped Back from the Brink?

26.12.2015 | 00:00 | Michael Jabara CARLEY

John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, recently visited Moscow to discuss the Syrian crisis with his colleague Sergei Lavrov and President Vladimir Putin. Journalists observed handshakes, smiles, even hearty laughter, between Kerry and his Russian counterparts. Syrian President Bashar al Assad does not have to resign immediately, Kerry declared, and the United States is not trying to isolate Russia. What good news, and what a surprise for the Russians…

Turkish-ISIL Oil Trade: The Roles of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Britain, and Israel (III)

19.12.2015 | 00:00 | Mahdi Darius NAZEMROAYA

Turkish officials were involved in illegal transport of oil from Iraq long before the emergence of the so-called Islamic State (ISIL/ISIS/IS/DAESH). Their illegal trade expanded to the Syrian Arab Republic with the intensification of the conflict in Syria. Turkey, however, is not the only player involved in the illegal oil trade in Syria and Iraq. The operations of the Anglo-Turkish company Genel Energy PLC, which works in Iraqi Kurdistan and Malta, illustrates the constellation of financial and energy sector interests involved…

What’s Next for Canada and Russia?

12.12.2015 | 00:00 | Michael Jabara CARLEY

For more than nine years, from 2006 to 2015, the Conservative Party held power in Canada under its leader Stephen Harper. For progressive Canadians, essentially the centre-left, who constitute more than 60% of the voting population, those nine years were a Dark Age. We watched the Canadian government cut back on social services through a policy of austerity ultimately intended to create a USA knockoff in Canada. The Harper government pursued a foreign policy based on unquestioning support of Apartheid Israel, unblinking compliance with US objectives abroad, enthusiastic backing of the fascist coup d’état in Kiev in 2014, and vengeful hostility toward the Russian Federation…

Does Turkey Really Belong to NATO?

05.12.2015 | 00:00 | Andrei AKULOV

The tensions between Moscow and Ankara are on the rise as a result of downing the Russian Su-24 warplane by Turkish F-16 fighter – an outright provocation pursuing Turkey’s long-term foreign policy goals.   So far, Russia has shown restraint and has avoided escalation by not retaliating militarily. However, the tension has not been diffused. By taking down the Russian aircraft Turkey dragged itself and, potentially, NATO into a very dangerous territory…

Candidates for US Presidency and Their Threats to Russia

28.11.2015 | 00:00 | Brian CLOUGHLEY

The United States chortled with glee about Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian Su-24 on November 24 and the Pentagon called it «a sovereign act of self-defence». It wilfully ignored the fact that even if the Russian pilot had indeed mistakenly violated Turkish airspace there was not, by the wildest stretch of the imagination, the tiniest threat to Turkey…

Paris Attacks are Game Changer: First Look at Possible Ramifications (I)

21.11.2015 | 08:00 | Andrei AKULOV

With the November 13-14 Paris attacks, the world has passed a tipping point in what is sure to be a decades-long battle against Islamist terrorism. It is already abundantly clear that the November 13-14 terrorist atrocity could change the course of international politics.  Flush with cash, the Islamic State has proven its ability to recruit Europeans into its ranks and attack any country located thousands of miles from the Middle East…

Syria and Ban Ki-moon’s «Propaganda Props»

07.11.2015 | 08:00 | Alexander MEZYAEV

In accordance with a number of UN Security Council resolutions, the UN Secretary-General must submit reports on the situation in Syria every 30 days. The most recent of these reports was submitted by Ban Ki-moon on 22 October. Despite the fact that the position of UN Secretary-General is entirely neutral, it seems that the current UN Secretary-General has effectively become a «lame duck»…

Vietnam Surrenders Sovereign Future to Trans-Pacific Partnership

31.10.2015 | 00:08 | Sergei SOLODOVNIK

The news about the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, signed by 12 countries in October 2015, was largely overshadowed by the latest reports about the fighting in Syria. Vietnam, a country with a population of over 90 million, was one of the signatories to that agreement. Let’s compare two different events. The first took place on May 29, 2015, when Vietnam signed a free-trade agreement (FTA) with the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU). The second was Vietnam’s signature on the TPP agreement on Oct. 5, 2015…
