What if I told you that a vacuum cleaner is not dangerous? by Scott

The Old Rome and the Third Rome came together and they are winning. Cat Motja   The Battle for liberation of Germany. Part I. Recently while talking to my German pal, I said that Russians liked Germans more than any other Europeans. With the exception of Serbs, of course. He swallowed his beer and didn’t respond, probably because he didn’t believe me. Next, I saw some of Motja’s thoughts and

by Ramin Mazaheri The French Socialist Party has the first round of their political primary on January 22nd, and as a longtime news correspondent in Paris I thought it incumbent on me to make a fun prediction.

Let’s bask in what a historically huge loser Hollande is: I cannot recall any

Donald Trump Presidential Inauguration Unofficial SITREP, by Scott Humor

It’s official, Donald Trump, a nice guy, moves into the White House. His inauguration followed by very modest, small town America style parade. Many Russian families watched the inauguration of the US president during their supper. Everyone loved that, finally,  a beautiful woman has become the first lady. Globalization becomes a dirty word.

by Igor Pejic The Syrian crisis is slowly reaching its seventh year. Violence, radicalization, civil displacement, fragmentation and deterioration of the Syrian society are reaching unprecedented levels. International and regional actors, thus far, have largely failed in their attempts to reach a compromise or a sustainable solution in order to control the crisis and quell the radical groups which are running rampant across the region.

Here’s how the Trump presidency will play out

by Pepe Escobar The Trump era starts now – with geopolitics and geoeconomics set for a series of imminent, unpredictable cliffhangers. I have argued that Trump’s foreign policy guru Henry Kissinger’s strategy to deal with the formidable Eurasia integration trio – Russia, China and Iran – is a remixed Divide and Rule; seduce Russia away from its strategic partnership with China, while keep harassing the weakest link, Iran.
