Saker Analyses and Interviews

The end of the “wars on the cheap” for the United States

This analysis was written for the Unz Review. With the Neocon coup against Trump now completed (at least in its main objective, that is the neutralization of Trump, the subsidiary objective, impeaching Trump and removing him from office remains something for the future) the world has to deal, yet again, with a very dangerous situation: the AngloZionist Empire is on a rapid decline, but the Neocons are back in power

Sputnik interviews The Saker on Syria

Dear friends, Here below  is the original Q&A of the interview I had with Sputnik on Monday.  To read the full Sputnik articles please see here: https://sputniknews.com/politics/201708021056124153-syria-us-kurds-independence/ https://sputniknews.com/politics/201708031056154407-us-syria-government/ Sputnik: What is behind Donald Trump’s decision to end the CIA covert program to arm the so-called “Syrian rebels”? How will it affect US positions in Syria? Will it help the Syrian Arab Army to defeat al-Qaeda and Daesh and restore the

Sanctions, smoke and mirrors from a kindergarten on LSD

The latest US sanctions and the Russian retaliatory response have resulted in a torrent of speculations in the official media and the blogosphere – everybody is trying to make sense of a situation which appears to make no sense at all.  Why in the world would the US Senate adopt new sanctions against Russia when Russia has done absolutely nothing to provoke such a vote?  Except for Rand Paul and

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

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

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

Using plausible deniability against a systematically lying adversary

This column has been written for the Unz Review. The Internet has been buzzing with reactions to the latest Stratfor report about how a military confrontation between Russia and the United States would play out. I did not find the full text, I suppose it is behind a Stratfor paywall or for subscribers only (and, frankly, I have better use for my time and money than to subscribe to that

Russia and Islam, connecting the dots and discerning the future

This article was written for the Unz Review Russia has often been in the news over the past years, mostly as the demonized “Empire of Mordor” responsible for all the bad things on the planet, especially Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton, the Russian intervention in Syria and, of course, the “imminent” Russian invasion of the Baltics, Poland or even all of Western Europe. I won’t even dignify all this puerile

Fake news? Nobody beats the western media

I love the western Ziomedia.  Not for what they write, but for showing their true face.  Finally.  After decades of pretending like they have some high professional or ethical standards, after years and years of pseudo-objective reporting, these folks have finally dropped their masks and are showing their true face.  We already saw the hysterical, truly maniacal, hate campaign against Trump (and it ain’t over by a long shot) and

The crisis in Qatar: yet another clumsy attempt by the Three Rogue States to weaken Iran (UPDATED)

This column was written for the Unz Review First, a quick who’s who We will probably never find out what truly was discussed between Trump, the Saudis and the Israelis, but there is little doubt that the recent Saudi move against Qatar is the direct results of these negotiations. How do I know that? Because Trump himself said so! As I mentioned in a recent column, Trump’s catastrophic submission to

Trump and the bubbles from a sunken (old) world

This article was written for the Unz Review: http://www.unz.com/tsaker/trump-and-the-bubbles-from-a-sunken-old-world/ First, a confession: I really don’t know how the corporate media has covered the Trump trip to NATO and the G7 summit. Frankly, I don’t really care – it’s been a long while already since I stopped listening to these imperial shills. There is a risk in completely ignoring them, and that risk is the risk to say “white” when everybody

Catherine Austin Fitts interviews the Saker for the Solari Report: The Emerging Multipolar World – The US U-Turn in the Middle East with Saker

Dear friends, Here is the latest installment of my quarterly conversations with Catherine Austin Fitts.  This time the topic was The US U-Turn in the Middle East.   I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. Here is the main page of the interview: https://solari.com/blog/the-emerging-multipolar-world-the-us-u-turn-in-the-middle-east-with-the-saker/ You can listen to the interview here: https://solari.com/audio/20170427_SakerHQ.mp3 You can get the transcript in PDF format here: https://solari.com/00archive/web/solarireports/2017/sr20170427_Saker.pdf I highly recommend that

Trump: dancing with wolves on the Titanic

This article was written for the Unz Review. Robert Fisk put it best: “Trump Is About To Really Mess Up In The Middle East”. Following his fantastically stupid decision to attack the Syrian military with cruise missiles Trump or, should I say, the people who take decisions for him, probably realized that it was “game over” for any US policy in the Middle-East so they did the only thing they

Security is a threat-driven exercise (ComSec in the age of Big Brother follow up)

Dear friends, The following is a follow-up to my recent post about communication security (ComSec).  I decided to write it after reading the comments to the original post which clearly showed to me that there was a dire need of even basic information about ComSec.  I am going to try to keep it very, very basic so please bear with me. First and foremost – security is a threat-driven exercise. 

Keeping communications private in the age of Big Brother (a practical HOWTO)

Dear friends, I have decided to share with you something which I originally sent out to the key members of the Saker community: my recommendation on how to keep your private communications private in the age of “Big Brother” aka NSA, ECHELON, GCHQ, Unit 8200, etc.  I have been interested in the topic of encryption for many years already, and I have had to use encryption techniques in the past

Making sense of the “super fuse” scare

This article was written for the Unz Review: http://www.unz.com/runz/making-sense-of-the-super-fuse-scare/ For weeks now I have been getting panicked emails with readers asking me whether the USA had developed a special technology called “super fuses” which would make it possible for the USA to successfully pull-off a (preemptive) disarming first strike against Russia. Super-fuses were also mentioned in combination with an alleged lack by Russia of a functioning space-based infrared early warning
