US Plans to Partition Iraq and Syria into “Pipeline States”

19.09.2015 | 08:00 | Alexei BALIEV

The Middle East is going through radical reshaping as a result of “Arab Spring” followed by the operation against the Islamic State. It would not be an exaggeration to say that its oil and gas reserves greatly influence the unfolding events. Iraq and Syria have a special role to play in this geopolitical game of the West…

Jeremy Corbyn vs. “Bush’s poodle”

18.09.2015 | 08:00 | Igor SHUMEYKO

After the leader of the British Labour Party was elected on Sept. 12, observers described the situation with platitudes such as “putting a good face on a bad matter,” but frankly, “putting a bad face on a terrible matter” would be more appropriate


Refugees Crisis Splits European Countries (II)

18.09.2015 | 00:02 | Pyotr ISKENDEROV

Hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers have become the main source of disagreement inside the European Union. Hungary lashed out at Austria and Germany for encouraging refugees to come to their countries through Hungary, effectively turning it into a migrant thoroughfare. Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban gets tougher. He sounds like if we were a hundred years back in the days of extremely complex relationship between Austria-Hungary and Germany and rivalry between Vienna and Budapest


Russia, Iran: No Alternative to Assad

18.09.2015 | 00:02 | Nikolai BOBKIN

The United State and its West European allies have persistently tried to overthrow the government of President Bashar Assad in Syria. Now they appear to understand that if not for Assad, black flags of Islamic State would have been flown over Damascus a long time ago…


Britain’s Labour Party: principles or power?

17.09.2015 | 08:00 | Elena Ananyeva

Every political party is always between Scylla and Charybdis: to preserve the purity of its ideology, its established political physiognomy, or to attract a broader range of voters by diluting the concentration of its ideas in order to win elections. The UK Labour Party, which held a leadership election last Saturday, is no exception


Juncker’s Quotas: Requiem for Baltics

17.09.2015 | 00:26 | Vladimir NESTEROV

When the Baltic states were admitted to the European Union in 2004, most of their citizens had the impression that they were joining an “elite club.” In their imaginations, the EU existed in order to dispense millions of euros from its coffers. But that’s not how things turned out…


Refugees Crisis Splits European Countries (I)

17.09.2015 | 00:13 | Pyotr ISKENDEROV

The stream of refugees and illegal immigrants created a fast-growing rift between the European Union and the national governments. It becomes increasingly obvious, that Brussels is unwilling and incapable of effectively handling the migration problem and it’s up to the local authorities to protect their citizens and defend the interests of national security…


US Congress Unable to Nix Iran Deal

16.09.2015 | 00:04 | Nikolai BOBKIN

The 60-day period that the US Congress gave itself to vote against the international agreement with Tehran over its nuclear program ends on Sept. 17. Republicans, who control both the House and the Senate, promise to kill the deal reached in Vienna. They are still under an illusion that force can be used against Iran


America’s News Is Heavily Censored

16.09.2015 | 00:02 | Eric ZUESSE

On 7 September 2002, U.S. President George W. Bush blatantly lied to concoct a “new report” by the IAEA about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction program, and the U.S. news-media reported the statement but hid that it was a lie


Spinning Anti-Russia Line

15.09.2015 | 08:00 | Brian CLOUGHLEY

On 31 August there were many comments in the western media about riots and killings in Kiev. Reuters reported that clashes had erupted “outside parliament… as politicians gave initial approval to constitutional changes granting more autonomy to pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine.” Then the western world’s propaganda machine kicked into overdrive and poured blame on Russia for Ukraine’s western-fomented problems…

A recent lawsuit against the U.S. government filed by U.S. military veterans who were subjected to biological and chemical warfare experiments from 1922 to 1975 provides concreate proof that the U.S. has continued to violate the terms of the Biological Warfare Convention (BWC) signed by the U.S., Britain, and the Soviet Union in 1972 and the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) of 1993


70th General Assembly Session: Great Chance to Strenghen International Security

15.09.2015 | 00:01 | Andrei AKULOV

Recently it has become confirmed that Russian President Vladimir Putin will address the UN General Assembly session. It is an opportunity for Russian and US Presidents to meet. By bringing together the world leaders, the session provides a unique chance of giving a new lease of life to the essentially dead dialogue between the two countries. It is obvious that no acute international problem can be effectively tackled without these states cooperating


Refugees: Pawns on Chessboard

14.09.2015 | 14:00 | Pyotr ISKENDEROV

The leaders of the European Union, through German Chancellor Angela Merkel, have laid down a new condition for Serbia regarding the prospect of the country’s EU membership. After Belgrade has agreed to every conceivable concession in terms of normalising relations with Pristina, refugees – who cross Serbian border in thousands – have become another way to put pressure on the Serbian government

14.09.2015 | 08:02 | Nil NIKANDROV

Knives Out as Britain’s Corbyn Strikes Blow for Democracy

14.09.2015 | 00:02 | Finian CUNNINGHAM

The British establishment just doesn’t get it: democracy has spoken, with the stunning election victory of socialist candidate Jeremy Corbyn to take the leadership of the Labour Party. Yet, immediately, the democratic mandate of his supporters was dismissed by the predominantly rightwing British media


Vladimir Putin’s Foreign-Policy Objectives, & His Desire for U.S. to Be an Ally

14.09.2015 | 00:02 | Eric ZUESSE

On September 4th, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin restated, as he has many times before, that he seeks a U.S.-Russian alliance to overcome the global Islamic jihad movement, in Syria, Iraq, and everywhere


Is This Really Change We Can Believe In?

13.09.2015 | 00:00 | Matthew JAMISON
