“I have, for some time, been talking up a strategic alliance between Washington and Moscow as the great paradigm shift in global geo-politics. It was, admittedly, difficult to see how such a shift could come about. Indeed, the failure of Obama’s reset was just another amongst a litany of seeming failures. But if that remains a strategic goal of Obama, and I believe that it must, then War on TerrorII would be the key to its realization.”

Moscow and Washington work together to restructure international relations

5th October, 2015

While the Atlantist media seem to be falling sick, infected by a sudden attack of the anti-Russian fever, Thierry Meyssan interprets Moscow’s military action in Syria as the first step towards a complete revision of international relations. In his opinion, the important question is not so much whether Russia will save the Syrian Arab Republic from the jihadists, but whether Russia’s army could partially replace the US army in the region in order to guarantee security. Basing his interpretation on an internal document from the Security Council, he affirms that Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama are acting together against the US liberal hawks and neo-conservatives.

Russia’s actions in Syria and the effects of the refugee crisis in Europe have lead to a significant rethinking in Europe. The recognition that a peaceful solution to the bloody civil war in Syria can only be achieved together with the Assad Government and the involvement of important powers of the region gaining ever more grounds.

There will be no Third World War

28th September, 2015

The liberal hawks and the neo-conservatives have been unable to provoke the confrontation with Russia for which they were trained during the Cold War. Finally, the voice of reason has prevailed. While discrete negotiations are under way to seek an end to the crisis in Ukraine, Russia and China are preparing to convince the United States and their allies to participate in a global alliance against Islamic terrorism. After 5 years of tension, both the project for the seizure of power by the Muslim Brotherhood – the « Arab Spring » – and the proclamation of a Caliphate have failed. Peace is saved.

Indian Punchline

13th September, 2015

The endgame in Ukraine appears to be struggling to be born. The German account of the meeting of the foreign ministers of the ‘Normandy Format’, which took place in Berlin on Saturday, struck a positive note. ‘Significant progress’; ‘less confrontational’; ‘made headway in some critical things’; ‘very close’; ‘now needs to be further consolidated and secured’ – the expressions used by the German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier in his media briefing were meaningful. (RFERL).

Russia exposes US’ hidden agenda in Syria

Posted by seumasach on September 15, 2015

Whose “hidden agenda” is the crux of the matter. Probably not Obama’s but other elements inside and outside of his administration.

The Syrian refugee problem was maturing slowly steadily and would have provided the perfect pretext for a US-led ‘humanitarian intervention’ in that country. But Russia is there first and the best-laid American plan may have gone awry.
