The AngloZionists are trying to provoke a war with Iran

There is really nothing particularly complicated about what just happened: the AngloZionists have murdered a top Iranian scientist in the hope that this murder will trigger a war.  The Iranians have promised a retaliation, but have not taken any action, at least so far. Since there are those who will inevitably conclude that “Iran cannot do anything“, or “Iran is afraid” or even “Iran should strike Israel“, all I want

Trump’s last hurrah?!

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] There seems to be a quasi consensus that Trump will not prevail and that Biden and Harris will get into the White House no matter what. To my surprise, even the Russian media seems to be considering that the Trump presidency is over. Yet, I am not so sure at all. Why? Because at this point in time, I think that it

Open Thread

Dear friends, There is a lot going on and I think that it would make sense to open a thread for various discussions of the current events (with moderation rules still applying).  To launch the discussion, I offer two photos: and this Enjoy! The Saker

The Saker blog needs moderators!

Dear friends, As most of you know, we are trying very hard to provide 24/7 coverage in moderation so as to make the waiting time until comments are vetted as short as possible.  This is particularly important since we have readers literally all over the planet so while it might be night for those of us living in Europe or the Americas, it might be day, or even morning, for

Putin Expels the Families

by The Ister for The Saker Blog The 1990s was a time of immense suffering for the Russian people.

One such offshore company, FIMACO,

The Karabakh war is over. The crisis is not. What comes next?

First, I want to begin this analysis by posting the full translation of an article posted yesterday by the Russian webzine Vzgliad.  I materially don’t have the time to make my own translation, so what I will post is just a minimally retouched machine translation, I apologize for this. original Russian text: https://vz.ru/world/2020/11/12/1070326.html Five main mysteries of the second Karabakh war by Evgenii Krutikov The end of the second Karabakh

Understanding the outcome of the war for Nagorno-Karabakh

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] A lot has happened very rapidly in the past two days and I will begin this analysis by a few bullet points summarizing what just happened (not in any particular order, including chronological): The war which has just ended was a real bloodbath and it has seen more casualties (counting both sides) than what the Soviet Union lost in 10 years of

The Deep State vs the deep country

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] I need to begin with the obvious: in spite of all the deep state, propaganda and “deep empire” (transnational) resources being used to declare that “Biden” (i.e. Harris) has won, as of right now nobody knows who got most votes and where. I would even suggest that we will never really find out who won, because who won depends on a large
