In These New Times

A new paradigm for a post-imperial world

Heads must roll!

Within a week or so, we have seen the resignation of Hague and Yatsianuk as well as strong indications that Merkel will be standing down rather than completing her current term as promised. Is the stress of backing a faltering Nazi “anti-terrorist operation” in Ukraine beginning to tell?

Things do indeed look desperate on the Eastern front in the West’s attempt to rerun WW11 with a different outcome. Last week the Kiev authorities gave the go-ahead for a civilian airliner to fly over a war zone and then immediately “knew” the identity of the culprit after it was shot down. The culprit, of course, was Russia. Am I alone in finding this all rather transparent? Still, let’s not preempt the findings of the inquiry that the Anglo-Americans are going to try and cook. But, if, for the sake of argument, we assume that it was an  false flag, then that would indicate that things on the military front were going very badly indeed. If Kiev’s military really were advancing as portrayed in the media then it would only be a matter of time before Russia was forced into direct intervention and the the neo-cons would have  their pretext for further conflict without the need to resort to murky stratagems. As it happens, there are reports on the ground which reveal catastrophic reverses for the Ukies, as they’re known.

The collapse of the Ukraine project is indeed bad news for its sponsors, but it could be very good news for those who wish to see Europe finally cast off its vassalage to the “United States of America and Britain”. Such a desirable outcome would of course involve changes of personnel: heads would have to roll, heads such as those of Hague and Merkel, but of many others also. Names such as Barroso, Ashton, Rasmussen(already coming to the end of their terms), Hollande, Fabius and Steinmeier come immediately to mind.

The utter, destructive uselessness of the NATO entity is being laid bare for all to see. Its life span has been artificially extended well past senility. How the hell can this monster still be stalking planet earth over twenty years after the end of the cold war? Here the right to die is indeed appropriate although not the right to be forgotten- may their abominable crimes be remembered forever!

The Western media is also on the way out having imploded into an infantilism which cannot correspond to popular opinion, however negative your views on Western citizenry are- we deserve better than this! The collapse of the Kiev regime is the collapse of the West as we know it: the Western unipole is set to be relegated to the status of a pole amongst others in a multipolar world order.

Russia , India to bypass dollar trade

Russia And India Begin Negotations To Use National Currencies In Settlements, Bypassing Dollar

Zero Hedge

31st July, 2014

Over the past 6 months, there has been much talk about the strategic proximity between Russia and China, made even more proximal following the “holy grail” gas deal announced in May which would not have happened on such an accelerated time frame had it not been for US escalation in Ukraine. But little has been said about that other just as crucial for the “new BRIC world order” relationship, that between Russia and India. That is about to change when yesterday the Russian central bank announced that having been increasingly shunned by the west, Russia discussed cooperation with Reserve Bank of India Executive Director Shrikant Padmanabhan. The punchline: India agreed to create a task group to work out a mechanism for using national currencies in settlements. And so another major bilateral arrangement is set up that completely bypasses the dollar.

Concerning the tragedy in Ukrainian skies

Today’s Zaman

Just like the rest of the world, Russia continues to mourn the loss of innocent lives in the MH17 crash, which occurred in Ukrainian airspace on July 17. Those people fell victim to the war currently raging in Ukraine.

Russia was the first to state to call for an independent, open and objective investigation into the causes of this disaster. The investigation should be international and it should be conducted with decisive roles from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and other international bodies. We believe that such a format will allow all parties to ensure a truly independent investigation, avoid unilateral assessments and find out the true causes of this accident.

The week that ushered in new Cold War

Posted by seumasach on July 29, 2014

The USA fought the the Cold War from a position of strength, having emerged from WW2 as the world’s leading power. The USA is now in a position of weakness. A new Cold War cannot resolve their problems. They can either launch a hot war or embrace the new multipolar reality. I suspect a hot war is not a real option since the military oppose it. This new Cold War is therefore a half-way house representing a stalemate between the president and the Pentagon, on the one hand, and the State Department, the CIA and the Deep State on the other. Obama cannot embrace multipolarity because of the opposition of the latter, who , in turn, cannot bounce the military into WW3. The position of the Deep State is steadily being eroded as their various covert programmes, in Syria, Venezuela and Ukraine run into the ground.

Indian Punchline

29th July, 2014

If future historians were to pinpoint the transition when the post-cold war era morphed into the new Cold War, they are bound to take a close look at this week. The Barack Obama administration is in a triumphalist mood after the success, finally, in rallying the US’s major European allies — UK, France, Germany and Italy — behind its concerted strategy to isolate Russia from Europe and impose biting sanctions against it.

Vladimir Putin is a thug and liar, says top British envoy

Posted by seumasach on July 29, 2014

“Dutch and Australian investigators were once again prevented from reaching the site of the Malaysia Airlines crash as fighting continued nearby.” This area is held by the Donbass militia in a defensive posture against a Kiev offensive. If the Kiev government called off the attacks, there would be no fighting there. But simple logic eludes our infantilised press.

At the same time the British government has thrown all prudence to the wind in pursuing its infatuation with the CIAs neo-nazi Bandera brigades. What they intend to gain through these moves remains obscure. Do they really want WW3? Is this Operation Unthinkable II? More likely they are just shooting themselves in the foot. Who will they turn to when the next banking bailout is needed and the Pound collapses on the international markets? Britain’s economic prospects are truly frightening and, with lunatics at the wheel, we will turn an unprecedented crisis into an unprecedented catastrophe.

Senior Kosovo figures face prosecution for crimes against humanity

Posted by seumasach on July 29, 2014

 

The truth will out. For years, the truth about the KLA, the West’s darling terrorists, ethnic cleansers,drug trafficers and people trafficers has been absent from the mainstream media. True to form, the West are, at this very moment, supporting a similar regime in Kiev, similarly engaged in a programme of ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity, and based on the CIAs Bandera neo-fascist movement. In both cases the West was so infatuated by these criminals that they were prepared to risk a global war on their behalf. The truth about the Kiev regime  must be urgently propagated in order to block the War Party. Equally, the criminal conspiracy against Syria, Libya and Egypt using the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda- type proxies, and supported by the West’s “progressives”, needs to be fully exposed.

Cameron urges restraint over Russia boycott

Posted by seumasach on July 28, 2014

British opposition politicians are only too happy to be swept away by anti-Russian media frenzy. Cameron, at least, seems to be aware of what is at stake here. It is Britain which will be isolated apart from its traditional US connection, totally useless in terms of recapitalizing Britain.

More Signs of Doubt in Europe About the Costs of Siding With Ukraine

Naked Capitalism

28th July, 2014

This week, the US hopes to get the EU to agree to impose so-called tier three sanctions on Russia to punish them for their alleged role in the downing of MH17 and for supporting the rebels in Ukraine. That would includeprohibiting investment in Russian equity and debt of Russian banks more than 90 days maturity by European citizens as well as barring EU banks from sourcing funding for them on a regulated market.

MOSCOW, July 25 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s evidence that Kiev has used phosphorus bombs against civilians should force the international community to put pressure on the Ukrainian authorities and make them stop the punitive operation in the country’s east, Russian diplomat Konstantin Dolgov said Friday.
