Egypt in the Calculations of Regional and Global Political Powers By Nikolai MALISHEVSKI

20 August 2013 — Strategic Culture Foundation

The vivid pictures filling the world media of what has been happening recently in Egypt are very reminiscent of the most critical moments of the «revolution» of 2011. At that time the local and world television channels were also filled with reports in a style very similar to today’s events: a furious, seething mob, bewildered policemen, Western correspondents broadcasting with tense, focused expressions on their faces…

Egypt’s Junta Has Nothing to Lose By Melkulangara BHADRAKUMAR

16 August 2013 — Strategic Culture Foundation

The appointment of Robert Ford as the new American ambassador to Egypt was indeed an ominous sign that the Obama administration expected civil war conditions to arise in Egypt. Ford’s forte during his hugely successful «diplomatic» assignment in Baghdad in the middle of the last decade was to organize the notorious death squads, which tore Mesopotamia apart and destroyed Iraq almost irreparably.

Banking Scandals as a Mirror to the Struggle for World Domination (II) By Valentin KATASONOV

Part 1

It is interesting that until recently, all the major initiatives to investigate the illegal and criminal activities of banks came from Washington. A certain amount of activity has also been witnessed in London, which (oh, the horror!) has started to prosecute Rothschild banks. Some experts are seeing this kind of “unpatriotic” position from the British authorities as a result of the fact that the country’s current leadership is heavily dependent on Washington like never before.

The summer of 2013 was a hot one for Nigeria, and not just in terms of the weather. On the one hand, the country’s populace and government have been subjected to new and increasingly violent attacks from terrorist groups, first and foremost from Boko Haram. On the other hand, Nigeria is experiencing massive pressure from the International Criminal Court, international human rights organizations and the local fifth column. This synchronized attack comes amid the destabilization of a number of neighboring countries…

 Global banks: a continuous series of scandals

Despite some stabilisation in the financial markets by the time the first wave of the crisis had come to an end (2007-2009), global banks are still not leading a quiet life. Since the beginning of the current decade, we have seen a continuous series of scandals surrounding the banks that make up the core of the global financial system. Violations and even crimes committed by banks at different times are being uncovered, financial regulators are carrying out official investigations into the activities of banks and there have also been legal proceedings. Banks are being forced to pay out enormous amounts in fines, and the circle of banks being pulled into the epicentre of the scandals is growing continuously.

10 August 2013 — Strategic Culture Foundation

At the end of July, eurozone deputy finance ministers approved another transfer of money to Greece to the tune of EUR 6.8 billion (it had previously been thought that Athens would be allocated EUR 8.1 billion).

Glenn Greenwald Promises New Disclosures By Irina Lebedeva

Just what has got American politicians so worried about Moscow’s decision to grant Edward Snowden temporary asylum in Russia?

It seems like this decision caught the American administration off guard. At any rate, on the day when the issuing of Russian documents to Snowden was the main world news story, Barack Obama was planning a conciliatory meeting with congressmen, including fellow Democrats, who were especially critical of the administration and the National Security Agency with regard to spying on American citizens.

Neither Coup nor Revolution? Egypt’s US-Backed Deep State Reasserts Control By Finian CUNNINGHAM

9 July 2013 — Strategic Culture Foundation

The numbers and claims are conflicting, but it seems that the Egyptian army has indeed committed a cold-blooded massacre – killing between 30 and 54 people and wounding hundreds more, including children, in the capital, Cairo, according to various media sources. The bloodshed pushes the North African country to the brink of civil war, already roiled by weeks of violence, with dozens dead in street clashes between opposing political factions, that culminated last week in the country’s army deposing the elected Islamist president, Mohamed Morsi…

Influential politicians speak about this unprecedented betrayal of the transatlantic partnership. The popular German magazine SPIEGEL has published its bitter conclusion: «Berlin is a third-class ally». Can this super-scandal doom the trade talks with the US?

America’s Plan B in Egypt: Bring Back the Old Regime By Mahdi Darius NAZEMROAYA

6 July 2013 — Strategic Culture Foundation

The road that has been taken in Egypt is a dangerous one. A military coup has taken place in Egypt while millions of Egyptians have cheered it on with little thought about what is replacing the Muslim Brotherhood and the ramifications it will have for their society. Many people in cheering crowds have treated the Egyptian military’s coup like it was some sort of democratic act. Continue reading

In the event, s series of concessions offered by Mohamed Morsi during his four-hour meeting in the presidential palace with General Abdul Fatah al-Sissi, head of the Egyptian army, didn’t prove sufficient enough. The political concessions offered by Morsi were, according to the Guardian newspaper, the following: Continue reading
