Saker Analyses and Interviews

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

Update on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict

With everybody is focused on the US election drama, there are important developments in the war over the NK.  I will summarize them here: While both the original Russian and then subsequent US ceasefires failed minutes after they were proclaimed, there are signs that both the Armenians and the Azeris are getting exhausted and want to talk. So far, the Azeris were mostly prevailing, but at great costs.  Also, their

Ask yourself the crucial question: why?

Why is it that US news channels censored a press conference by a President of the United States? Why is it that tech giants feel the need to censor Trump’s tweets? Why is it that in key Dem states the GOP observers were not allowed to actually observe anything? Why did the Dems counter-sue just to try to prevent GOP observers from observing the ballot count? Why do the media

This is absolutely amazing: the EU leaders follow the Ziomedia and declare Biden the winner!!

Dear friends, When I saw this I could not believe my eyes: “European leaders congratulate Joe Biden, after media count declares him victorious in US presidential election“. This is truly unheard of: foreign leaders declare a winner in a US election even BEFORE the vote count has been certified by US courts!!!  Talk about “interference in US elections” – this really takes the prize! Yeah, I know, these EU knuckleheads

Legacy Ziomedia declares victory (+ Open Thread) (+UPDATE)

In a closely coordinated move, the Dems and their legacy Ziomedia have declared Biden the victor of the presidential race. Likewise, the main US TV channels have cut off Trump during a White House press conference. Before all the votes are counted and before the courts could decide which votes count or not.  In simple legal terms, this election is not over. But we know that Dems don’t give a

Cui bono from the situation in France

I won’t even bother repeating it all here, those who are interested in my views of this entire Charlie Hebdo canard can read my article “I am NOT Charlie” here: https://thesaker.is/i-am-not-charlie/ No, what I want to do is to ask a simple question: do you think the French leaders are simply stupid, suicidal or naive?  I submit that they neither stupid, nor suicidal nor naive.  In fact, they are using

When exactly did the AngloZionist Empire collapse?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] I remember one evening in distant 1991, I was sitting with a few friends in the SAIS cafeteria discussing the future of the United States with a few very smart students, including a Pakistani Army Colonel, a US captain who served on aircraft carriers and a Spanish diplomat: we all agreed that “the system” was perfect, so to speak, and that the

Short Armenia vs Azerbaijan war update

As was predicted by many, in spite of the agreement signed in Moscow, thing on the ground in the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan  have escalated: the Armenians have claimed that Azeri drones have attacked Armenian tactical ballistic missiles on Armenian soil and the Azeris have confirmed this, saying that this was both a warning and a preemptive attack to protect Azeri civilians. Bottom line is this: Azerbaijan has now

Can and should Russia stop the war in the Caucasus?

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] This war is officially a war between Azerbaijan and the (unrecognized) Republic of Nagorno Karabakh (RNK) aka “Republic of Artsakh” (ROA) which I shall refer to simply as Nagorno Karabakh or “NK”. As is often the case, the reality is much more complicated. For one thing, Erdogan’s Turkey has been deeply involved since Day 1 (and, really, even much before that) while

Russian options in the Karabakh conflict

With the eyes of most people locked on the debate between Trump and Biden, the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh (NK) has received relatively little attention in the West.  Yet, this is a potentially very dangerous situation.  Just think about this: the Armenians are accusing the Turks of shooting down an Armenian Su-25 over Armenia (not NK!).  If that is true, then some would say that this is

The world has gone absolutely insane!

[this column was written for the Unz Review] We all know that we are living in crazy, and dangerous, times, yet I can’t help being awed at what the imperial propaganda machine (aka the legacy ziomedia) is trying to make us all swallow. The list of truly batshit crazy stuff we are being told to believe is now very long, and today I just want to pick on a few

We have lost a real giant (Stephen F. Cohen has died)!

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God (Holy Gospel according to Saint Matthew 5:9) Dear friends, It is with immense sadness that I have to report that Stephen F. Cohen passed away yesterday in his home in Manhattan at the age of 81. There are a few media outlets who have already reported this.  Most of them discuss Stephen F. Cohen’s political ideas and

Reconsidering the Presidential Election

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] In early July I wrote a piece entitled “Does the next Presidential election even matter?” in which I made the case that voting in the next election to choose who will be the next puppet in the White House will be tantamount to voting for a new captain while the Titanic is sinking. I gave three specific reasons why I thought that

Solari Report quarterly interview with The Saker

Dear friends, Here is the latest installment of my quarterly conversations with Catherine Austin Fitts. This one was recorded on August 11th. You can listen to the interview on the original Solari Report page: The Emerging Multipolar World – Spotlight on Russia with the Saker Listen or download the interview here: https://audio.solari.com/sr20200820/sr20200820_InterviewHQ.mp3

Russians are the dumbest idiots on the planet!

Russians are dumb.  Hopelessly stupid.  They are amateurs of the worst kind.  Ignoramuses on steroids.  Why? Well, for one, their so-called super-dooper biowarfare agent “Novichok” seems unable to kill anybody.  The Russians must have realized that.  This is why, when they tried to kill Skripal (after freeing him from jail) they put that Novichok thing all over the place:  on the bench near Salisbury, on Skripal’s door handle, even in

Will Hillary and the Dems get the civil war they are trying to provoke?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] If you have not already seen this, check out this video of Hillary Clinton stating that, quote, “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances“: “Any” means “any”.  That would include the (admittedly hypothetical) case of Trump clearly winning in by landslide.  Again, “any” means “any”. The direct implications of that is that the Dems should re-take the White House by any

President Putin says that Russia will help Belarus (UPDATED!)

President Putin just gave an important interview to the Russian journalist Sergei Brilev in which he indicated that Russia and Belarus are allies in the CSTO Russia and Belarus are also Union states Russia has obligations towards Belarus Lukashenko has invoked these obligations Putin has agreed to create a “security reserve force” which is ready to intervene in Belarus in case of danger for the Belarusian state and sovereignty Putin

Might Belarus become the next Syria?

Okay, I admit it, the title is rather hyperbolic :-)  But here is what I am trying to say: there are signs that Russia is intervening in the Belarusian crisis (finally!) First and foremost, we can see a truly radical change in Lukashenko’s policies: if his initial instinct was to unleash a brutal repression of both the violent rioters and the peaceful demonstrators, now he has made a 180 and
