Bullying Belgrade

Wednesday, 2 November 2022 — The van says…

With the exception of Hungary, Serbia has become an island surrounded as a sea of Atlanticists and aspirants attempt to play a western game in Eastern Europe

Preamble

Over the last month, several statements have been made by the EU in Brussels as well as its member states as they attempt to pressure Serbia into acting against Russia as the West moves against the East. This shorter article will look at Serbia, the role it plays in Europe as well as what the future may hold as the West attempts to halt a presently unstoppable Russia. This short article is looking to the current situation rather than looking at affairs over the last few decades.

The War that NATO cannot Fight

Thursday, 27 October 2022 — The van says…

It may not (officially) be happening yet, but that’s not to say that it won’t in the future

Preamble

From the outset, the current conflict being waged in the Ukraine has been NATO’s war against the East. Washington and its allies know as well as anyone that a resurgent Russia as well as a China that becomes more powerful by the day present a clear and present danger to a West that is sitting on a precipice of its own making. In this article, we will examine certain potential events from the author’s perspective between NATO and the East, these being a continuation of the commitments that have already been made by the Western establishment.

Wicked Leaks – Part 1: How The Media Quarantined Evidence On Nord Stream Sabotage

Wednesday, 26 October 2022 — Media Lens

Last week, Alex Nunns, author of ‘The Candidate – Jeremy Corbyn’s Improbable Path To Power’ and former Corbyn speechwriter, described the current assault on democracy within the Labour Party:

‘What’s happening in the Labour Party is new. The Labour right, having had the shock of their lives in 2015, are now intent on eradicating the left entirely. This isn’t how their predecessors thought. It’s a new departure in Labour history that’ll have long term consequences.’

So why the change?

Russia’s homage to Nord Stream pipelines

Saturday, 22 October 2022 — Indian Punchline

by M. K. BHADRAKUMAR

Who stands to gain? First pictures of Nord Stream pipeline show 50 metre hole after “powerful explosions” confirming sabotage.

David Brinkley, the legendary American newscaster with a career that spanned an amazing fifty-four years from World War II once said that a successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him. How many American statesmen ever practised this noble thought inherited from Jesus Christ remains doubtful.

A war Russia set to win

Monday, 17 October 2022 — The Tribune

The Europeans have been nicely played by the Americans

Former Ambassador MK Bhadrakumar

Two massive terrorist strikes misfired spectacularly and a terrible beauty is born in the Ukraine war. These two carefully planned attacks in quick succession — on Nord Stream gas pipelines and Crimean Bridge — were intended as a knockout blow to Russia. According to President Vladimir Putin, people ‘who want to finally sever ties between Russia and the EU, weaken Europe’ are behind the Nord Stream blasts. He named the US, Ukraine and Poland as ‘beneficiaries’.

The United States declares war on Russia, Germany, the Netherlands and France

Tuesday, 4 October 2022 — Voltaire Network

Thierry Meyssan

While the international press treats the sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines as a news item, we analyze it as an act of war against Germany and the European Union. Indeed, the three gas supply routes to Western Europe have been cut off simultaneously, while at the same time a new gas pipeline has been opened to Poland.

Attack on Nord Stream kills prospects for dialogue in Ukraine

Wednesday, 28 September 2022 — Indian Punchline

by M. K. BHADRAKUMAR

The three leaks that were discovered on Monday at the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines connecting Russia with Germany — one after another within hours of each other in the exclusive economic zones of Sweden and Denmark — were caused by blasts. Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde tweeted that the blasts “are consequences of detonations, probably caused by sabotage. We continue to collect information and do not rule out any cause, actor or motive.”

Europe, more than Putin, must shoulder the blame for the energy crisis

The same arrogant, self-righteous posturing from the West that fuelled the Ukraine war is now plunging Europe into recession

Middle East Eye – 14 September 2022

Outraged western leaders are threatening a price cap on imports of Russian natural gas after Moscow cut supplies to Europe this month, deepening an already dire energy and cost-of-living crisis. In response, Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that Europe will “freeze” this winter unless there is a change of tack.

Journalists who challenge NATO narratives are now ‘information terrorists’

We will have to answer to the ‘law’ as ‘war criminals’

Nazis congregate on Google Plus 2019.

A US state department sponsored round table on ‘countering disinformation’ was recently held at the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine.

NATO-Backed Kiev Regime Resorts to Nuclear Terrorism

Friday, 12 August 2022 — Strategic Culture Foundation

A simple, urgent test beckons: stop the military attacks on Zaporozhye. Now, who is objecting?

Europe’s biggest nuclear power plant is under repeated missile attacks by the NATO-backed Kiev regime. Let that appalling fact sink in for a moment. Can anything more criminal and reckless at this time be imagined?

NATO-Backed Network of Syria Dirty War Propagandists Identified

Monday, 1 August 2022  — Internationalist 360°

Defaming journalism on the OPCW’s Syria cover-up scandal, The Guardian and its NATO-funded sources out themselves as the real “network of conspiracy theorists.”

On June 10th, The Guardian’s Mark Townsend published an article headlined “Russia-backed network of Syria conspiracy theorists identified.” (“Russia-backed” has since been removed).
