29.08.2015 | 08:00 | Andrei AKULOV

Why and How All Large Estates Should Be Taxed to Death

29.08.2015 | 00:00 | Eric ZUESSE

All non-taxation of estates at death is feudal; it’s systematic continuation of feudalism, into our own era…


Has Gladio Returned to Europe?

29.08.2015 | 00:00 | Wayne MADSEN

The recent shooting of the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul by two woman who were claimed by Turkish authorities to be members of a far-left terrorist group, the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Army-Front (DHKP-C), as well as a suspicious incident on a Thalys high-speed train bound for Paris from Amsterdam, indicate that the false flag operations conducted by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency’s Cold War-era «stay behind network» known as Gladio may be back in full operation…


Why Does US Need New Format for UN?

28.08.2015 | 00:00 | Pyotr VOROBYOV

The United States decided to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations with a withering critique of that institution, accusing it of abuses and impotence. Usually Washington undertakes such campaigns in order to lay the groundwork for significant maneuvers the US administration is planning to take on the international stage. This time they’re trying to deny Russia her power of veto in the UN Security Council…


Native Americans and US Scorched Earth Continuum

28.08.2015 | 00:00 | Finian CUNNINGHAM

The Navajo and Apache were the last of the great Native American nations to be conquered at the end of the 19th Century. Using a scorched-earth policy, the tribes were massacred by Union troops under the command of Washington. Destruction of settlements and pastoral lands was instrumental in dispossessing the tribes, leading to their eventual subjugation…


New President of Poland Steps Up Anti-Russian Moves in Pursuit of Geopolitical Ambitions

27.08.2015 | 08:00 | Andrei AKULOV

Barely three weeks into his term, Andrzej Duda, the new President of Poland, is moving to pivot his country to closer security ties with NATO and its immediate eastern neighbors. At the same time he courts confrontation with Moscow. The President has made a number of statements reflecting his attitude towards Russia and Ukrainian crisis that also reflect the stance of the Law and Justice Party (PiS) he represents, a political force that may well come into power within the next few months…


Greatness of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Or not?

27.08.2015 | 00:00 | Eric ZUESSE

Many people are aware that U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt skillfully lured Japan into attacking Pearl Harbor so as to get the American public to support joining England’s war against Adolf Hitler’s Nazis…


India, Pakistan Choose to Remain Disengaged

27.08.2015 | 00:00 | Melkulangara BHADRAKUMAR

It is a familiar sight when India-Pakistan interactions raise hopes but only to end up as damp squib. In fact, that is a well-established pattern, and the bleached landscape is littered with carcasses of India-Pakistan summit meetings…


It Was Far East Where Red Army Saw Final Days of WWII

26.08.2015 | 18:14 | Yuriy RUBTSOV

The Japan’s Foreign Ministry never had a dull moment during the last weekend. It was the headache of its own making. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev visited Iturup, one of the Kuril Islands, on August 22 as part of his trip to the Far East…


Why US Wreaks Havoc in Latin America?

26.08.2015 | 08:00 | Nil NIKANDROV

The pursuit of hegemony is part and parcel of US policy in Latin America. Any attempt to take independent foreign policy decisions by a Latin America state is perceived by the White House as a challenge. The Obama administration has applied great efforts to destabilize the governments and countries in the Western Hemisphere that refuse to dance to the Washington’s tune…


Don’t Be Black in America

26.08.2015 | 00:00 | Brian CLOUGHLEY

The United States has a black president who is treated with respect by most people, but millions of other African-Americans are not so fortunate because in the Land of the Free there is widespread bigotry which goes back a long way…

26.08.2015 | 00:00 | Wayne MADSEN

Forty years ago, in 1975, America’s official involvement in the war in Indochina came to an end. President Richard Nixon never did achieve his much-vaunted goal of «peace with honor»…


Refugees in Geopolitical Game

25.08.2015 | 08:00 | Pyotr ISKENDEROV

Hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants have recently made their way to Europe, but only to the casual observer would this seem to be a fluke event. In reality, what we are dealing with is an artificially induced phenomenon…


Regional Factors Make Russia-Japan Reset Hit its Fair Share of Snags

25.08.2015 | 00:00 | Melkulangara BHADRAKUMAR

The complex, delicately poised reset in the Russia-Japan relationship increasingly seems a distant prospect. Both Russia and Japan desired a reset and saw it being in their best interests…


Privatization Is at Core of Facsism

25.08.2015 | 00:00 | Eric ZUESSE

Privatizations are increasingly fashionable, such as in Greece, Ukraine, the U.S., and UK — and privatizations are a central feature of fascism…


Increasing Propaganda Against Russia

24.08.2015 | 20:00 | Michael AVERKO

European Union (EU) spokesperson Maya Koijanic’s recent outburst against a planned Russian, Belarusian and Serbian military exercise, is hypocritically ironic, in line with an ongoing bias against Russia – prevalent among some key elements within Western foreign policy strategizing and media. This slant targets those outside Russia, who’re sympathetic to reasoned mainstream Russian views. (Related to this subject, is my July 7, 2014 Global Research article «Twisted History Against Russia And Serbia» and the July 9, 2015 Sputnik News piece «UN Srebrenica Resolution Shows Double Standards, Justifying Russia’s Stand»)…


Migrant Crisis Tests EU’s Foundations

24.08.2015 | 16:35 | Finian CUNNINGHAM

The influx of migrants into the European Union could be dealt with humanely and practicably – if EU members worked together in solidarity. But the haphazard influx is inciting tensions between member states precisely because of the lack of EU solidarity. Germany – the biggest destination for refugees – is showing its exasperation with other states, which is in turn eroding the very foundations of the 28-member bloc…


US Tests Space Weapon: Back to Star Wars (II)

24.08.2015 | 00:00 | Andrei AKULOV

We may not know the whole truth, but it is generally believed that until now arms systems have not been stationed in space. Weapons of mass destruction are banned from space under the 1967 Outer Space Treaty. But the Treaty does not prohibit the placement of conventional weapons in orbit…


Refugees, Repatriates and West

24.08.2015 | 00:00 | Yuriy RUBTSOV

The civil war unleashed by the Kiev regime in southeast Ukraine has exacerbated the refugee problem considerably. Since the turn of the 1940s-1950s, Europe has been ignorant of the displacement of such large amounts of people. According to the latest UN data, by 31 July 2015 more than 2.3 million people had left their place of permanent residence in Ukraine. In addition, Kiev is only willing to help those Donbass residents who have fled the bombing and shelling to areas under the control of the Ukrainian authorities…


Is Schengen Agreement Nearing its End?

23.08.2015 | 18:22 | Vladimir NESTEROV

Europe is stunned. Germany, that has always been a locomotive of European integration, does not rule out suspending participation in the agreement allowing passport-free travel between most European states…


US Tests Space Weapon: Back to Star Wars (I)

23.08.2015 | 00:00 | Andrei AKULOV

With public attention centered on other things the United States has been deploying new and more sophisticated weaponry in space. Step by step the Earth’s orbit is becoming primed for war. A growing number of space objects lurk in space and there is a good reason to surmise that they are possibly waiting for commands to disable other satellites and start a star war. The US deploys powerful sea-based Aegis air-defense systems that, with accurate guidance, could reach into orbit to destroy enemy spacecraft…


Washington’s Extraordinary ‘Welcome’ for China’s President Xi

23.08.2015 | 00:00 | Finian CUNNINGHAM

When visitors arrive it is a basic norm to extend hospitality. But for Chinese President Xi Jinping’s state visit to the United States next month, the American response seems to be one of extending sumptuous hostility…
