Watch: Kazakhstan Chaos: An Opportunity, But for Who?

Suunday, 16 January 2022 — New Atlas

Friday, 14 January 2022 — The Saker

Max Blumenthal and geopolitical analyst Pepe Escobar discuss the violent coup attempt in Kazakhstan, and its crucial importance as an ally of Russia and the center of China’s Belt and Road Initiative. Pepe addresses US and Turkish meddling, and why this massive and misunderstood country is suddenly at the heart of the new cold war. They also talk about the failure of the US-Russia talks in Geneva and if war could be on the horizon.

Being a “swing state” may have tactical advantages but when life gets tough and the tough gets going, there could be consequences. Turkey once faced such a moment of truth a hundred years ago. It faces a similar predicament today.

Putin draws the line for colour revolutions

Wednesday, 12 January 2022 — Indian Punchline

Russian airborne troop units who departed on Jan. 6 to join the Collective Security Treaty Organisation’s peacekeeping force in Kazakhstan are expected to return in the coming days after successful completion of mission.

This must be a rare page in American diplomatic history that a US Secretary of State has been literally off his rocker. Antony Blinken’s outbursts on the events in Kazakhstan were not only boorish but also illogical.

Military analysis of the attacks on Kazakhstan

Wednesday, 12 January 2022 — Voltaire Network

by Valentin Vasilescu

The attack on Kazakhstan on January 2, 2022 involved two independent main groups linked to the same foreign command. It involved about 20,000 fighters, both foreign and Kazakh. These personnel had been trained for jihad in Syria or Afghanistan, as the case may be.

The US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s Press Availability at Washington on Friday was largely devoted to Ukraine and the forthcoming strategic stability talks with Russia.

Steppe on Fire: Kazakhstan’s Color Revolution

By Pepe Escobar posted with permission and cross-posted

Maidan in Almaty? Oh yeah. But it’s complicated.

So is that much fear and loathing all about gas? Not really.

Kazakhstan was rocked into chaos virtually overnight, in principle, because of the doubling of prices for liquefied gas, which reached the (Russian) equivalent of 20 rubles per liter (compare it to an average of 30 rubles in Russia itself).
