A US Senate commission in 1975 counted eight assassination attempts by CIA agents on Fidel Castro during 1960-1965

In the Russian journal Natsionalnaya Oborona (National Defence), the chief of Russia’s foreign intelligence Sergey Naryshkin has written a riveting essay on the 75th anniversary of the Central Intelligence Agency, which falls on Sunday. It is an unusual gesture, especially in the middle of the hybrid war in Ukraine.

People Power in Pakistan

Thursday, 28 July 2022 — Pepe Escobar

“In Pakistan’s history, it may be the first time that people’s power has been honored by the judiciary in the face of open threats on the judges’ safety, including an attack on the chief justice. The lawless and powerful corrupt politicians did everything to derail the process of the rule of law, but justice prevailed. The U.S. government that initiated the current political crisis in Pakistan through its extremely unwise and self-destructive act of regime change in Pakistan has, hopefully, learned that it cannot impose corrupt and servile politicians on the 220 million people of Pakistan whose steady progress in the past three and a half years under the leadership of Imran Khan has been nullified by those incompetent and self-serving politicians that the U.S. installed in Pakistan. Pakistan now faces the challenge of going back to square one and re-starting its road to recovery. Congratulations to the people of Pakistan, to Pakistan’s Tehreek-e Insaaf Party (the Movement for Justice), and to the Party’s leader Imran Khan for this valiant and successful fight against foreign intervention and the powerful mafias.”

Obvious examples of Central Intelligence Agency covert action abroad are difficult to identify today, save for occasional acknowledged calamities, such as the long-running $1 billion effort to overthrow the government of Syria, via funding, training and arming barbarous jihadist groups.

After Recep Tayyip Erdoğan officially announced his intention to run in the upcoming 2023 presidential elections in Turkey, the current White House administration gave a clear signal to its Western “allies” to intensify the campaign against the current Turkish leader and prepare measures to oust him.  Although there is no talk of a coup d’état in Turkey yet, the ouster of Erdoğan as a result of the elections has become quite clear.

On March 26 U.S. President Joe Biden called for regime change in Russia:

Speaking in Warsaw, Poland, on Saturday, President Biden said of Russian President Vladimir Putin: “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.”

The White House immediately rushed to talk back that call for regime change and a day later Biden himself denied that he was calling for regime change:

From Douma to Xinjiang to Bucha, the U.S. empire’s atrocity propaganda is the same

Tuesday, 3 May 2022 — See You in 2020

“Humanitarianism” is the weapon that modern U.S. imperialism uses as the cornerstone in its campaigns to destabilize countries and regions. By presenting its violence as a selfless effort to save the people it targets, the empire can not just claim its hands are clean, but pose as heroic. It’s a natural evolution from the “white man’s burden,” repackaged for the modern age where the United States pretends to not be racist. And it fits perfectly into the falsely progressive and enlightened brand of liberalism in the social media age, which hides its support for oppressive systems behind feel-good sloganeering.

As the conflict between Ukraine and Russia continues to escalate and dominate the world’s attention, the increasing evidence that the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is and has been working to create and arm an insurgency in the country has received considerably little attention considering its likely consequences.

‘Operation Cyclone – Ukraine Edition’ The Real Plan?

Tuesday, 15 February 2022 — South Front

By Gavin O’Reilly 

For almost three months, the Western mainstream media, in a move not dissimilar to its previous assertions that Saddam Hussein had the capability to launch WMDs within 45 minutes, or that Iran was building a nuclear bomb, has repeatedly claimed that Russia is planning an ‘imminent’ invasion of its Western neighbour Ukraine – under the rule of the successive US-EU friendly governments of Petro Poroshenko and Volodymyr Zelensky since the 2014 Euromaidan, a CIA and MI6-orchestrated regime change operation launched in response to then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s November 2013 decision to suspend an EU trade deal in favour of pursuing closer ties with the Russian Federation.

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

Suunday, 16 January 2022 — New Atlas

(Brian Berletic – NEO) – Kazakhstan has suffered severe nationwide violence allegedly prompted by fuel price concerns. However, it quickly became clear that it was instead actually foreign-sponsored destabilization which was, at best, using legitimate public concerns as cover for attempted regime change.

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.

Probing the depths of the CIA’s misdeeds in Africa

Saturday, 8 January 2022 — Africa is a Country

The CIA committed many crimes in the early days of post-independence Africa. But is it fair to call their interference “recolonization”?

In 1958, a year after it achieved independence from colonial rule, Ghana hosted a conference of African leaders, the first such gathering to ever take place on the continent. At the invitation of Ghana’s newly elected prime minister, Kwame Nkrumah, more than 300 leaders from 28 territories across Africa attended, including Patrice Lumumba of the still-Belgian Congo and Frantz Fanon, who was then living in still-French Algeria. It was a time of unlimited potential for a group of people determined to chart a new course for their homelands. But the host wanted his guests not to forget the dangers ahead of them. “Do not let us also forget that colonialism and imperialism may come to us yet in a different guise—not necessarily from Europe.”
