Russia’s New Weapons and their Implications for Brazil

by Ruben Bauer Naveira for the Saker blog Originally published in Portuguese in Jornal GGN – https://jornalggn.com.br/noticia/as-novas-armas-da-russia-5-implicacoes-para-o-brasil What impact will Putin’s announcement of Russia’s new weapons have on Brazil? That impact will be considerable, because, more than ever, our country is tied to the United States. Unlike the coups of 1964 and 1969, when the military had a plan for governing Brazil, the 2016 takeover can best be described as

AngloZionist options (intermediate report) UPDATED

An AngloZionist attack on Syria appears to be inevitable and imminent.  There is always a chance of a major pushback from some putative mentally sane, realistic and patriotic generals in the Pentagon, but I am not holding my breath (I asked two of my best informed friends about that, they both told me to forget about it).  Counting on those who have made a life obeying orders to suddenly refuse

Train of thoughts or a wachamacole to get sleep

by F.MAN for the Saker blog After reading the last articles by the Saker and worrying for some hours about the coming events that might turn into the next and last World War, and I say last because nobody is going to survive it if escalate into nuclear (which is a real possibility) And while thinking about what would be the hypothetical response of Russia to the forecasted as highly

When Chinese Trash saved the world: Western lies about the Cultural Revolution

by Ramin Mazaheri for the Saker blog Of the West’s the three main “Reasons Why Red China is Evil and the West is Morally & Ideologically Superior” propaganda campaign, the Cultural Revolution outranks the Great Leap Forward and the legacy of Mao for being far and away the most difficult for non-Chinese to truly get a handle on. Most leftists won’t even touch it, much less defend it an inch…and

On The Threshold of War — Paul Craig Roberts

UPDATE There is no longer any doubt that the criminally insane government in Washington is driving the world to the last war. https://www.rt.com/news/423634-unsc-security-threats-syria-chemical/ https://www.rt.com/news/423627-russian-military-checks-chemical-douma/ UPDATE: As Americans we must face the possibility that we have a criminally insane government in Washington that is leading the world to destruction. A Russian Government Press Release: False information is being planted about the alleged use of chlorine and other toxic agents by the

So it was the ‘invincible Tsahal’

Okay, now we know: yesterday panic about a US attack on Syria was all about the “invincible Tsahal” making the usual symbolic attack against some “Iranian” forces in Syria.  These guys were so totally macho and cool that they did not even bother informing Russia, and so totally loyal that they did inform the USA.  The final score is as follows: 5 out of 8 missiles intercepted (you can see

Missile strikes on Syria tonight: do not rush to conclusions + please post here what you hear

Okay, I am getting flooded with email of tweets and FB reports and articles about missiles strikes in Syria.  My first reaction EVERYBODY WAIT! DO NOT JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS! We have no facts.  Some reports say that the USA attacked, other that it was Israel or even France.  The truth is that we won’t know for sure for at least 24 hours.  Whoever attacked will present that as a huge

Listening to Russian experts (short report about the mood on Russian prime time TV)

I just spend about 2 hour listening to a TV debate of Russian experts about what to do about the USA.  Here are a few interesting interesting points. 1) They all agreed that the AngloZionist (of course, they used the words “USA” or “Western countries”) was only going to further escalate and that the only way to stop this is to deliberately bring the world right up to the point

His master’s voice (or how an obedient dog goes to war)

This is really pathetic, but it no less dangerous.  First, there was the order given from Above: Israeli officials: the “U.S. must strike in Syria” because “Assad is the angel of death, and the world would be better without him” Then there was the summoned servant’s immediate reply: Trump: “Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by

Petro-yuan is the newest weapon for the China-Russia-Iran anti-USD alliance

Maybe Baba Beijing can synthesize the two of them into a cooling looking petro-yuan logo. After 25 years of dreams, planning, rumors and testing, the Chinese petro-yuan is now official.

Glasses

By Ivan Ilyin, from Книга раздумий (The Book of Rumination) translation by Edvin Buday You do not wear glasses? What a shame! In the opposite case, I would have told you a little something about glasses. After all, it is thanks to them that I have learned something in life, something that possibly might not be without any use for others as well. When I was a child I did

A Curious Incident Part VIII

by Sushi for the Saker blog An Open Letter to the UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson Sir: In the matter of the Skripal affair it appears the facts are once again being fixed around the policy. While the prior attempt at a “dodgy dossier” had the intent of giving grounds for an attack upon a foreign state, the present course of HMG appears confused, contradictory, alien to the interests of

Daring to go beyond Western propaganda on the Great Leap Forward’s famine

by Ramin Mazaheri for the Saker Blog Between 108 BC and 1911 AD there were no fewer than 1,828 recorded famines in China, or nearly one each year. Since 1962 there should have been in China – if their historical average remained unchanged – 50 serious famines. Instead there have been zero. When one discusses “China” and “famine” – how often do you hear this totally valid point of view? I

Notes on the Catacomb Church in the USSR

By professor Ivan Andreev Translation by Edvin Buday Introduction by The Saker: For all Orthodox Christians, today is the Great Friday of Passion Week (which would be called “Good Friday” in the West), that is the day on which Orthodox Christians re-live (“commemorate” would be the wrong word) the Crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ on the Golgotha.  Christ Himself, His Apostles and the Fathers have all taught us that

SitRep: SPACE and the Double Helix (a briefing)

by Larchmonter445 for the Saker Blog GLONASS + Beidou Satellite Systems are to be joined as a unitary global navigation satellite system. It will cover well beyond Russia and China, as it will be the Eurasian satellite system. Of course, both are global systems tuned heavily to Russian and Chinese requirements and available to any public user anywhere on Earth.
