After having negotiated a regional alliance against the Islamic Emirate which implied Saudi Arabia, Syria and Turkey, Russia suddenly had to abandon its strategy after the Turkish turn-around. Ankara has in fact decided to break off its ties with Moscow, and has cancelled, without genuine motive, the contract for the gas pipe-line Turkish Stream, created, in partenership with Ukraine, an international Islamic Brigade intended to destabilise Crimea [1]. It has also come to the help of the Islamic Emirate in their fight against the Kurds of the PKK and the YPG.

13th August, 2015

For the last two weeks, the international Press has been full of rumours announcing the beginning of a US military operation against Syria. Thierry Meyssan, who has already denounced a manipulation by General John Allen and his friends, whose aim is to sabotage the USA/Iran agreements, revisists the absurdity of this charge. He explains why the strategic support offered by Russia and China to a secular Syria is not negotiable.

The Iran nuclear deal is yet to cross the Rubicon of approval by the US Congress and the going got a bit tough last weekend with Senator Chuck Schumer and Representative Eliot Engel, two top congressional Democrats, announcing their objection to the deal. Schumer claimed he made the decision “after deep study, careful thought, and considerable soul-searching,” while Engel is yet to lay bare his soul. But never mind; the debate in the US looks increasingly surreal.

Indian Punchline

17th July, 2015

Most analysts blithely overlook that Iran also has a “Look East” dimension to its foreign policies and once it shakes off the shackles of the UN sanctions, it is that vector which is bound to become lively almost overnight, impacting the regional alignments in the South Asian region in a major way.

Indian Punchline

15th July, 2015

The world community has overwhelmingly, enthusiastically welcomed the Iran nuclear deal. Many western powers are scrambling to tap into the deal and take advantage of seamless business opportunities that could be opening up. The French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius who has been in the forefront of those insisting on an iron-clad agreement is likely to be in a long line of top diplomats beating a path to Tehran.

Middle East: The predictable defeat of France

Posted by seumasach on June 9, 2015

This analysis contains the following sensational revelation which I have no way of confirming but makes perfect sense in the context of the overall situation

“The signing of the agreement was threatened by the fall of Palmyra, which cut the « Silk Road », in other words the communications route between Iran on one side, and Syria and Hezbollah on the other [10]. In the event that Palmyra should remain in the hands of the jihadists (in other words the mercenaries who are fighting against the « Axis of Resistance » [11]), Teheran would be unable to transport its gas and export it to Europe, and would therefore have no interest in signing an agreement with Washington.

The Assistant Secretary of State thus informed the meeting that he had authorised the « Axis of Resistance » to bring fresh troops into Syria in order to defeat Daesh. By that he meant 10,000 Revolutionary Guards, who would reinforce the Syrian Arab Army before the 30th June. So far, the Syrians have been defending themselves alone, with help only from the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Turkish PKK, but without Russian or Iranian troops or Iraqi militia.”

8th June, 2015

While the signature of the agreement between Washington and Teheran draws ever closer, Thierry Meyssan retraces and analyses the policies of François Hollande in the Near East which uphold his support for the Gulf monarchies and Israeli apartheid. Indisputably, the author demonstrates the fact that this policy, which is contrary to the values of the Republic and the interests of the Nation, exclusively serves the personal ambitions of a few individuals and the social group they represent.

EU prepares to abandon Ukraine

Posted by seumasach on May 25, 2015

“What Ulyukaev is saying is that after wasting eight months rejecting the Russian proposals out of hand, the Europeans have suddenly indicated in the last few weeks that they might be prepared to accept them after all.  

If this is really so, and if what Ulyukaev says is true, then it is the best evidence to date that the Western powers have indeed finally given up on their Ukrainian adventure, and have accepted that the grandiose geopolitical objectives they set themselves when they drafted the Association Agreement and backed the Maidan coup are unachievable, and that the time has now come to draw a line under the whole affair.”
