Saker Analyses and Interviews

Debunking the flagwaving myths about an attack on North Korea

(This analysis was written for the Unz Review) First, the bragging dummies Trump and Haley are still at it.  The want to force China to take action against the DPRK by threatening to take North Korea “into their hands” if China refuses to comply.  Haley said “But to be clear, China can do more, (…) and we’re putting as much pressure on them as we can. The last time they

A short commentary on Trumps latest SNAFU

Okay, I admit it: Trump is a Russian agent.   I tried really, really hard to deny it, but now I can’t continue anymore because I am presented with an absolutely incontrovertible truth: only a Russian agent infiltrated to the highest levels of power in the USA, the White House, could have done what Trump did a couple of days ago: recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  That, truly, was

Kosovo will be liberated (UPDATED)

(This column was written for the Unz Review) General Ratko Mladic, now 75, was sentenced last week to life in prison by the NATO kangaroo court known as the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). It is worth mentioning here that, just like Bosnian-Serb President Radovan Karadzic and Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic, Mladic was attested and handed over to this NATO tormentors by the Serbian authorities. That tells

A commentary on the expulsion of Russia from the Olympics

So finally, the suspense is over and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has suspended the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) from 2018 Olympics, ruling that “clean” Russian athletes can only compete under a neutral flag in South Korea in February.  Since I am going to be asked about this I might as well give you my reaction to this latest development. First, I really don’t care about sports or the Olympics. 

Book excerpt: How I became a Kremlin troll by The Saker

Dear friends, Today, with the kind permission of Phil Butler, I am posting the full text of my contribution to his book “Putin’s Praetorians: Confessions of the Top Kremlin Trolls“.  There are a couple of reasons for that.  The main one is that I strongly believe that this book deserves a much bigger visibility than it has received (this is also why, exceptionally, I am placing this post in the

A ZioWahabi attack on Hezbollah and Iran?

Israel, Saudi Arabia Setting Preconditions For War With Hezbollah – a critical analysis This article was written for the Unz Review SouthFront has just released a very interesting video analysis warning about the possibility of a war involving Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and, possibility, Syria, Iran, and Israel. That, of course, also means that Russia and the USA would be involved. First, please see the video here: https://southfront.org/israel-saudi-arabia-setting-preconditions-for-war-with-hezbollah/ What I propose

AltRight vs The Saker

A very telling example of a very ugly trend I just got an email from my daughter this morning saying “You’ve probably seen this, and you might not really care even if you haven’t, but if not: https://altright.com/2017/05/05/the-saker-and-other-dissident-bloggers-are-completely-out-of-touch/.  Apparently, you lived in Iceland“. No, I had not read that as I generally have no time to read the AltRight nonsense.  Out of a sense of obligation I recently forced myself to

Debunking two American myths

This article was written for the Unz Review There are two myths which are deeply imprinted in the minds of most US Americans which are extremely dangerous and which can result in a war with Russia. The first myth is the myth of the US military superiority. The second myth is the myth about the US invulnerability. I believe that it is therefore crucial to debunk these myths before they

Do you think his assessment is accurate?

This article was written for the Unz Review “Do you think his assessment is accurate?” was the subject line of an email I got from a good friend recently.  The email referred to the article by Paul Craig Roberts “One Day Tomorrow Won’t Arrive” which claimed that “the US military is now second class compared to the Russian military“.  The article then went on to list a number of Russian

What is really wrong with Russia Today and Sputnik? (UPDATED)

Today I am going to touch upon a subject which frankly saddens me, but which I cannot ignore, if only because so many others have also noticed this and asked me about it: what in the world is really wrong with Russia Today and Sputnik (RT&Sp)?! We all know that the US government has now embarked upon an effort to persecute these two Russian media outlets in the USA by

Trump goes full shabbos-goy

I won’t even bother discussing the substance of what Trump had to say today because what he said deserves no such attention.  I will quickly mention that yesterday Trump pulled the US out of UNESCO on behalf of Israeli interests.  Today he basically announced a tepid, possibly hot, war on Iran.  I am tempted to say “so what else is new?”.  In fact, nothing, nothing at all. This topic, the

Is Communism really dead?

This article was written for the Unz Review The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 did mark the end of the longest experiment in Communism in recent history. Many saw this event as the proof that Communism (or Marxism-Leninism, I use these interchangeably here) was not a viable ideology. After all, if in Russia Communism was formally ended in 1991, the Chinese quietly shifted away from it too, replacing
