The Western empire had been prodding Russia with a skewer since Putin defused the attempted Syrian invasion by USA. The Russian rumbled with annoyance after each prick. Subsequently Ukraine became the ultimate kicking ball for the Western powers and Russia. Accusations flung back and forth, culminating with economic sanctions against Russia. Once again, the bear took the bullet, groaning but not yet retaliating. Things might be about to change very soon… Read the rest of this entry »
The Dark Side force is looming strong. The urge for war grows with intensity each day. Not just wars that decimate people and property. But wars that destroy through the unseen powers of money. Greece is reeling under the enormity of debt that it could not repay. Ironically, the lenders are deep in debt too. Soon, when money stops flowing, so will food supplies. Then civil unrest follows and soon people die, but with more dignity compared with gruesome blood flowing from dismembered bodies. Still, it is the same. It is WAR. Read the rest of this entry »
Paul Craig Roberts – The latest Washington lie, this one coming from NATO, is that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops and self-propelled artillery.
How do we know that this is a lie? Is it because we have heard nothing but lies about Russia from NATO, from US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, from assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland, from Obama and his entire regime of pathological liars, and from the British, German, and French governments along with the BBC and the entirety of the Western media?
This, of course, is a good reason for knowing that the latest Western propaganda is a lie. Those who are pathological liars don’t suddenly start telling the truth. Read the rest of this entry »
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will be meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin tomorrow (on Wednesday 9 April). Since getting elected on the promise that Greece will not get humiliated by the EU by crippling austerity measures, Tsipras and his finance Minister Yanis had been making visits to EU partners to resolve the financial impasse. Hitherto, solutions proposed by Greece are not acceptable to the EU troika. The day of reckoning for a Grexit seems imminent. Read the rest of this entry »
Is Putin dead or alive? The alternative media was abuzz for several days as Putin has not made any public appearance for 10 days. Apparently, the mystery of Putin’s disappearance act started with a post on Debkafile purporting that he is dead. The post was subsequently taken down, but the rumours continue to spread as Putin remains mysteriously absent in scheduled public functions. The consequences of Putin’s demise during these times of Cold War has the potential effect of turning the world’s political scene into a terrifying cauldron of military conflicts.

Ever since Russia torpedoed US’s plans to invade Syria in 2013, relations between US and Russia took a horrific turn. War-mongering shifted from the Middle East to Russia. Russia was being demonised incessantly by US. NATO cronies have no choice but to follow the drumbeat of Obama. Then Ukraine became the next pawn of Western hegemony. Victoria Jane Nuland, the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs was caught using profanity as US blatantly instigated the Ukrainian uprising against an elected government.

Wikipedia: Go (simplified Chinese: 围棋; traditional Chinese: 圍棋; pinyin: wéiqí, Japanese: 囲碁 igo,[nb 2] literal meaning: “encircling game”, Korean: 바둑 baduk[nb 3]) is a board game involving two players that originated in ancient China more than 2,500 years ago. It was considered one of the four essential arts of a cultured Chinese scholar in antiquity. Its earliest written reference dates back to the Confucian Analects. Read the rest of this entry »
Killing people is the latest fad. ISIS goes about killing people in cold blood and in the most grotesque ways that one can imagine. Irrational Islamic terrorists went on the rampage in USA, Sydney, Paris, Copenhagen. All these are occurring in the “Western world”. Then there was a spate of banker “suicides”. For now. Then it happened yesterday in a high-profile assassination in Moscow. Boris Nemtsov, a veteran opposition figure in Russia, was gunned down in a drive-by attack in central Moscow. Can we stop the contagion before it spreads to other peaceful countries? Read the rest of this entry »
It is not peace for Ukraine, but a two-piece Ukraine henceforth. The “ceasefire” accord agreed by the Normandy 4 has commenced as of 15 February 2015 midnight. As expected, there was a flurry of gunfire exchanges during the period leading to the ceasefire deadline. Each side wants to inflict more casualties and regain more ground before ceasefire takes effect (if it does). That period allowed a last-minute vengeance of fire by both sides, resulting in several more deaths. With the deadline now past, will the ceasefire hold? Or is this just an interim reprieve for both sides to re-arm for a greater conflict? Read the rest of this entry »
Phew! A major war is averted for now. Europe, and the world held their breadth as the Normandy 4 “concluded” a 16 hour grueling marathon meeting in Minsk. The decision was to implement a ceasefire starting midnight 15 February 2014. Why wait till 15 February and not now? Three more days to unload all the shells and kill a few more fellows. Three days is a long time for those living in areas where bombs are dropping all around. Beggars can’t choose. For those in East Ukraine, it had been a year of hell. At least now, there is hope. Three more agonising days before the promised peace returns. It is the day worth waiting for. Read the rest of this entry »
