Pope Francis: US-Russia alliance ‘dangerous’

The Hill reports: Pope Francis issued a stark warning against “dangerous” international alliances, including between the U.S. and Russia, on Saturday. The Pope said that he was afraid of “very dangerous alliances among [foreign] powers that have a distorted vision of the world: America and Russia, China and North Korea, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and [Syrian President Bashar] Assad in the war in Syria.” He spoke to the Italian daily newspaper la Repubblica, as reported

Judea Declares War against Roger Waters

by Gilad Atzmon I am not the only musician whose career they try to destroy. Roger Waters is also subject to a vile Zionist smear campaign. The Jewish press reports that a documentary titled Wish You Weren’t Here by Ian Halperin is about to hit the screens in every shtetle around the world. According to the Wish You Weren’t Here trailer, Waters is to blame for the rise of anti Semitsm, the failing of

Saker appeal: please send ammo to resume the battle!

Dear friends, The time has come for the summer fundraiser.  I don’t particularly like it, but the truth is that it is vital.  To use my favorite metaphor – I need you to send me the “ammunition” needed to continue the battle, I simply can’t do it on my own. I will say that so far we have done amazingly well.  As I have already mentioned elsewhere, the main blog

Comparing ‘coups’: Macron’s is one, Maduro’s is not

by Ramin Mazaheri Of course the biggest coup of them all is the American Deep State (now available for the first time ever!) against Trump. After that the biggest coup was the one against Mohamed Morsi, because Egypt is more than double the size of Ukraine. Seems like Morsi’s problem was that his “Islamist coup” was approved by referendum and thus not a coup at all. What Erdogan learned from

Trump Cannot Improve Relations With Russia When Trump’s Government and the US Media Oppose Improved Relations

by Paul Craig Roberts President Trump Has Been Contradicted by His Own Government, Which Has Lined Up Against Him in Favor of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and the Russophobic Presstitute Media that serves the military/security complex and the neoconservatives. I am afraid that The Saker and Finian Cunningham are correct. Nothing can come of Trump’s meeting with Putin, because, as Cunningham puts it, “Trump doesn’t have freedom or

How Russia should deal with the “Pilban Syndrome” (PBS)

A reader, SunriseState, has recently posted the following question in the comments section: “what would you say is the most optimal Russian strategy vs Poland?“.  When I read it I thought “now that is an interesting question indeed!”.  Today I will try to answer it, going step by step. First, a diagnosis. There is a Polish syndrome.  We can ascribe all sorts of causes for it, some will describe the

Putin and Trump stage-manage a win-win meeting

by Pepe Escobar for The Asia Times From the start, the “positive chemistry” in the Mother of All Sit-Downs was a given. The format – with only the four principals, Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and two translators – prevented any leaks. What was originally scheduled for 35 minutes went on for 2 hours and 16 minutes, and not even an impromptu

The first Putin-Trump meeting yields… …something very close to nothing

First, we have the manner in which the Americans have been preparing the G20 summit.  As we all know, in diplomacy actions count as much, or even more, than words.  Here are just a few of the actions recently taken by the Americans in preparation for the G20 summit and Trump’s first meeting with Putin (in no particular order): The US rejected the joint Russian-Chinese plan to defuse the crisis

G20 – Is the West Governed by Psychopaths?

by Peter Koenig “Welcome to Hell!” is the slogan with which G20 protesters greet the self-appointed leaders of the world to their summit on 7 and 8 July 2017 in Hamburg, Germany, under Madame Merkel’s auspices to discuss the calamities of our globe and how to resolve them. Never mind that the distress of Mother Earth has been mostly caused by those who represent the West, and now pretend to

The future of postwar Syria: victory looks like Iranian Islamic Socialism

by Ramin Mazaheri Russia’s economic output in 1921 – following World War One and then four years of (International) Civil War – was slashed by a mind-boggling 80% as compared to 1913. The Russian Civil War was truly international because there were 14 foreign armies operating on Russian soil after 1917: The Germans occupied 25% of Russia’s former territory, the British took oil fields around Baku and furnished 1 million

Donald Trump’s Keynote Speech In Warsaw, Poland

Speech transcript: PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. That’s so nice. The United States has many great diplomats, but there is truly no better ambassador for our country than our beautiful First Lady, Melania. Thank you, Melania. That was very nice. (Applause.) We’ve come to your nation to deliver a very important message: America loves Poland, and America loves the Polish people. (Applause.) Thank you. The Poles have not only

The Muslim Spring, take II

by Ghassan and Intibah Kadi In a previous article titled “A Muslim Spring” published on the Saker, on the 12th of June 2017, the analysis of the then recent Qatar standoff took us into the direction of whether new Middle Eastern alliances were taking form and old ones dismantling. Developments since then reveal that the distinctive parts of the new embryos are already differentiating and emerging. The initial article foresaw

I sure hope that I am wrong, but…

This article has been written for the Unz Review. The talk of the week is the upcoming meeting between Presidents Trump and Putin on the sidelines of the G20 conference this Friday.  There have been some very good articles already written on this topic, I particularly recommend Adam Garrie’s “5 obstacles Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will have to address in their meeting” for The Duran and Israel Shamir’s “What

Syria’s once avoidable new battle

by Ghassan Kadi In an article published on the Saker titled “Kurdish Autonomy; Partition or Masterplan”, and as the unsavoury prospect of establishing an independent Kurdish state in Syria was taking form, I emphasised that this scenario is avoidable, and at worst, if it had to happen, and if all cards were played correctly, then a seemingly impending disaster could be turned around and that any potential harm could be
