World Balance Reshaped

21.09.2013 | 00:00 | Nikolai BOBKIN

The United States has a custom of putting the countries, which have fallen out of its favor, on the “rogue states” list. Now it risks itself to be subject to international isolation.  The Washington’s world political center status is being lost, the Obama’s policy on Syria has happened to be short-sighted and strategically wrong. The America’s game with “foes of convenience” like Syria and Iran, has failed.  Nobody wants to join the United States in their fight against these states and the US claim to Middle East domination is being rejected more resolutely…

A Finnish Haven for Terrorists

03.05.2013 | 08:34 | Vladislav GULEVICH

The extremist Internet site «Kavkaz-Center», which is once again being talked about in connection with the terrorist attacks in Boston, used to operate out of Sweden and at one time was located in Estonia and Lithuania, but has seriously become a mouthpiece for Chechen terrorists since moving to Finland. Here it has been taken under the wing of Mikael Storsjö, whose activities are regarded quite favourably by the Finnish authorities. Operating out of Finland, «Kavkaz-Center» successfully acts as an «information window» to the outside world for the «Caucasus Emirate» – an organisation classified as terrorist in Russia. Characteristically, the US authorities have also included the Caucasus Emirate on its list of terrorist organisations, but are doing nothing to neutralise it…

Gold: Back to Money World (II)

27.04.2013 | 00:00 | Valentin KATASONOV

There are two interpretations of the reasons behind the military intervention against Libya – the defense of human rights and the desire to grab the Gaddafi’s oil. Both are wrong. The real reason is the fact, that Colonel Gaddafi was brave enough to follow the example of General De Gaulle. He tried to bring into life the idea of getting away from paper money in favor of gold standard. By doing so he threatened the owners of printing press or, in other words, the major share owners of the private company under the name of the US Federal Reserve System…

Yair Lapid: The New Star on the Israeli Political Scene

02.02.2013 | 00:00 | Dmitry MININ

The main surprise of Israel’s latest elections for the19th Knesset was the Yesh Atid party («There is a future»), established less than a year ago it came in second with 19 seats, and is led by 49-year-old Yair Lapid. Some (political opponents) predict it will soon collapse, others (supporters) unquestionably see him as a future leader of the country, still others view Lapid as a product of political technologies grown overseas and grafted onto Israeli soil, similar to the leaders of the «color revolutions» in Eastern Europe, but more subtly so: «no protruding ears» or visible external shocks… Continue reading

The Winner`s Parade in the Gaza Strip, or When «a Pillar of Cloud» Cleared

15.12.2012 | 00:00 | Dmitry MININ

No matter how hard Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, along with the Israeli propaganda machine claim that the outcome of operation «a Pillar of Cloud» against the Gaza Strip was a victory and a harsh lesson to the ruling Hamas movement there, it is now clear that in spite of the sustained sacrifices, Hamas was able to earn the greatest benefits from these events.

Once again on the territorial dispute between Japan and China and Korea (II)

17.11.2012 | 10:11 | Alexander VORONTSOV

Almost simultaneously with the aggravation of the territorial dispute between China and Japan, a long-standing dispute has sharply escalated between Japan and South Korea over  ownership of the Dokdo Islands (Korean name), they are also called Takeshima (Japanese name). If in the case of the Senkaku archipelago Japan carries administrative control, the Dokdo islands are under the sovereignty of the Republic of Korea (ROK)…To date, the picture is very dramatic. At the same time, albeit from different viewpoints, Japan`s territorial conflict with neighboring countries is really important for, the ROK, China and Taiwan, Russia … Continue reading

The DEA as a coordinator of drug trafficking in Latin America

03.11.2012 | 12:00 | Nil NIKANDROV

Inspector Franklin Brewster Chase, aged 39, the head of investigation of particularly important cases of drug trafficking in Panama, was poisoned on July 3, 2006. Brewster, like many other members of staff, kept food brought from home in the fridge, which stood in one of the staff rooms. After having lunch and drinking water from a plastic bottle, he fell ill, began to complain of shortness of breath, fever, dizziness, and nausea. Half an hour later, still conscious, he asked to be taken to the National Hospital. Two weeks later he died in excruciating pain. Panamanian investigators told the press that, in all probability, Brewster had been poisoned by organophosphate pesticides… Continue reading

Global Drug Mafia and the Banks. An Introduction to the Subject

06.10.2012 | 00:00 | Valentin KATASONOV

The truth to be kept in mind is that as of today the merger between the financial sector grands and the drug mafia in its classic forms – the cartels and syndicates – is an accomplished fact. No border exists any longer between global-scale banks and drug cartels and, consequently, between laundered and legally clean money – a lot of the funds believed to belong to the latter category actually fall within the former. The present alliance between banks and drug cartels is best described as the drug-banking mafia or the drug-banking business…The socioeconomic model currently materializing in the majority of the world’s countries can be interpreted as a hitherto unstudied brand of capitalism, namely, the drug-banking capitalism…

From the Cold War to NATO's "Humanitarian Wars" – The Complicity of the United Nations By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya

4 April 2012 — Global Research

Humanitarian wars, especially under the guise of the “Responsibility to Protect (R2P),” are a modern form of imperialism. The standard pattern that the United States and its allies use to execute them is one where genocide and ethnic cleansing are vociferously alleged by a coalition of governments, media organizations, and non-governmental front organizations. The allegations – often lurid and unfounded – then provide moral and diplomatic cover for a variety of sanctions that undermine and isolate the target country in question, and thereby pave the way for military intervention. This is the post-Cold War modus operandi of the US and NATO.
