The Committee of 147

26.01.2013 | 00:00 | Valentin KATASONOV

In the article «What is behind the information attacks on the Federal Reserve System?» I have already written about the research group of scientists at the Swiss Federal Institute (SFI) in Zurich. Their study was published in mid-2011 and was described by the world media as the sensation of the year. Since then, many authors, including «information guerrillas», constantly refer to the Swiss work. In particular, the data from this study was used by David Wilcock in his book «Financial Tyranny.» Activists from the «Occupy Wall Street» movement also adopted the calculations of the Swiss group (links on posters, flyers, brochures)…


The Great Game syndromes in Bay of Bengal

Quite obviously, the US’ pressure tactics toward Pakistan, Sri Lanka or Bangladesh (and even Myanmar) in the most recent years failed to work. Therefore, it is highly improbable that any of the South Asian countries will cooperate with the US’ containment strategy toward China (or Russia). Suffice to say, the advantage goes to China and Russia if they are interested in a «pivot» to South Asia…


The Arab winter and the revolutionary illusionists

24.01.2013 | 00:00 | Hannes HOFBAUER

…The actual geopolitical role of the Muslim Brotherhood seems comparable to those of reserve players on the bench, which are used because the autocrat was injured, let’s say by social discredits. They are supported by international financial institutions and global capital groups because they are willing to subordinate themselves to Western plans of transformation… In this regard, the rebellions from Tunis to Cairo worked: nowhere new economic regulation are carried out, on the contrary: each country which in recent decades operated with state-properties and measures to protect local producers from international competition – they may have sailed under socialist or nationalist flags, however perverted and full of elements of corruption – after the so-called Arab spring has to open their markets radically and runs through a tough transition period in terms of new owners…


What is behind the information attacks on the FED?

23.01.2013 | 00:00 | Valentin KATASONOV

Every year the financial world becomes more and more turbulent. There are sharp fluctuations in the stock market index, highly volatile exchange rates, massive bank failures, sudden cross-border movements of “hot” money in the tens and hundreds of billions of dollars, and generally increased instability in the global financial system. Information attacks play a huge role in maintaining the global financial system in this state, by throwing breaking news at the information space, often of a shocking nature…


Statistically Examining Cairo’s Constitutional Referendum: Did Morsi Hijack Democracy?

23.01.2013 | 00:00 | Mahdi Darius NAZEMROAYA

President Morsi created a new constitution for Egypt on December 26, 2012. Prior to this, Morsi was forced by massive street protests in Egypt to rescind an executive decree that granted him sweeping presidential powers. His opponents called it an empty gesture as Morsi’s government rolled out the tanks and brought out the Egyptian military from the their barracks into the streets. Opponents of Morsi and the Egyptian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood accused him and his Freedom and Justice Party of playing a game to stupefy Egyptians by consistently making propositions, then withdrawing them, and then making them again to create confusion…


The U.S. prepares for military action in Bolivia

22.01.2013 | 00:00 | Nil NIKANDROV

The scandal over the “scientific team from the USA” broke out, despite attempts by the U.S. Embassy in Bolivia to kill it off. In June 2012, a team of team of specialists numbering 50 people came to the country, ostensibly to study the adverse effects of high altitude on humans and their capacity for rapid recovery of their fighting ability. To avoid attracting attention, the Americans used tourist visas and passed through border control in small groups… Officially, the expedition was headed by Robert Roach of the University of Colorado, but in reality, the “research team” was subordinate to U.S. military intelligence officers (Defense Intelligence Agency – DIA)…


Syria and International Crime Court. New Phase of Military and Diplomatic Stand-Off

21.01.2013 | 00:01 | Alexander MEZYAEV

The situation in Syria is evolving according to the most unfavorable scenario. The opposition has met the President Bashar Assad’s proposals for peaceful resolution of the crisis with Aleppo University bomb attacks. A new diplomatic provocation against Russia is in the works in response to its diplomatic efforts aimed at finding ways for peaceful crisis management. On January 14, 2013 Switzerland asked the United Nations Security Council to refer Syria to the International Criminal Court (ICC), which prosecutes people for genocide and war crimes. It had applied great effort to make 54 more states join the move?…


Planning Black Deeds to Reshape Black Continent

21.01.2013 | 00:00 | Nikolai MALISHEVSKI

According to experts, the Europeans and Americans see the African wars as something like a computer game when each side can lose with no great damage suffered, because the colonial rule is still in force there. The rule is to avoid killing “ours”, that is the “whites”. When 2-3 Frenchmen lost their lives in Rwanda in the middle of the 1990s, Paris raised hue and cry about it. A million of Africans lost their lives in a few days, but the fact never impressed the Europeans much… The next phase of Black Continent’s reshaping takes the form of direct military intervention. It started with the so called Arab Spring and intrusion into Libya, an oil producing state. Mali is a good example of how it is implemented in practice…


French pain is US gain. France’s downfall in Mali is chance for US to increase African sphere of influence

20.01.2013 | 00:00 | Finian CUNNINGHAM

…The old colonial master France appears to have acted impetuously by ploughing into Mali with guns blazing. The rash act by Paris last week seemed to have genuinely caught Washington by surprise. But maybe the Americans are thinking that is no bad thing now. If this campaign ends ruefully for France – and the way things are turning pear-shaped, the outlook does not bode well – then the United States will be in a position to step in to assert its influence in a region noted for abundant reserves of oil, gas, metals and ores. From a cynical point of view, the US may well let France get bogged down in the desert and take a fatal hit to its historic role in Africa. French pain is US gain…
