Friday, 1 July 2022 — Moon of Alabama

This is the map that shows the historic development of Ukraine.

Russia is, in my opinion, aiming at taking the pink and yellow parts which have predominantly Russian speaking populations. The most north- western pink oblast is Kharkov which is also the name of the oblast’s main city.

Russia is Left with Few Options Other than to Defend Itself, “As Always!”

Monday, 9 June 2022 — New Eastern Outlook

Author: Henry Kamens

103

One prince rides out from the West, the other from the East, destined to do battle until Judgment Day decrees there must come a time of peace. Ancient legends have always fascinated me, and it has always seemed that this is always with us: the past, the present and the future all knotted together in a repetitive loop.

Ottoman Sultan Abdulmejid spared no expense to build the sumptuous Dolmabahce Palace in Istanbul during 1843 and 1856, which was constructed to impress the world. It had the largest Bohemian crystal chandelier ever installed and fourteen tonnes of gold to gild the ceilings.

Madrid and other Matters

Tuesday, 28 June 2022 — The van says…

It takes a special kind of stupid to grin like this when you’ve just been blackmailed by one of your members.

Preamble

This week sees the NATO summit being held as Russia continues its Special Military Operation in the Ukraine, words and war happening in the same week. This article, alongside other issues, will compare the announcements that are apparently going be made in Madrid with both current events and those that could occur in the future. No official statement will be made until the end of the summit, yet very reliable sources indeed have been saying the same things over recent days, leading the author to presume their veracity.

Megalopolis x Russia: Total War

Friday, 6 May 2022 — Strategic Culture Foundation

Pepe Escobar

After careful evaluation, the Kremlin is rearranging the geopolitical chessboard to end the unipolar hegemony of the “indispensable nation”.

But it’s our fate / To have no place to rest, / As suffering mortals / Blindly fall and vanish / From one hour / To the next, / Like water falling / From cliff to cliff, downward / For years to uncertainty. 

Holderlin, Hyperion’s Fate Song

Operation Z is the first salvo of a titanic struggle: three decades after the fall of the USSR, and 77 years after the end of WWII, after careful evaluation, the Kremlin is rearranging the geopolitical chessboard to end the unipolar hegemony of the “indispensable nation”. No wonder the Empire of Lies has gone completely berserk, obsessed in completely expelling Russia from the West-centric system.
