How Russia is preparing for WWIII

This article was written for the Unz Review: http://www.unz.com/tsaker/how-russia-is-preparing-for-wwiii/ I have recently posted a piece in which I tried to debunk a few popular myths about modern warfare. Judging by many comments which I received in response to this post, I have to say that the myths in question are still alive and well and that I clearly failed to convince many readers. What I propose to do today, is

Putin’s Team is United: Talk of a Purge is Wrong

by Alexander Mercouris for the Duran As the Russian government weathers a period of unpopularity caused by the recession, there is talk that Putin is about to purge his cabinet, but this is almost certainly wrong. An article has recently appeared in The Huffington Post which discusses rumours of an imminent purge of liberals from Russia’s government.

Examining American Exceptionalism

By Stephen J. Bergstrom On the surface, American exceptionalism appears to represent a boldly-stated concept but when contrasted to the subtleties of personal experience, the lessons and flow of history and individual geographically-rooted place, horribly small-minded and delusional, conceivable only as a statement by a crazed, power-hungry overlord to an underling.

International Military Review – Syria & Iraq, May 24, 2016 (+ funny article!)

https://southfront.org/international-military-review-syria-iraq-may-24-2016/ Addendum: check out this funny article too: https://southfront.org/southfront-is-run-by-the-russian-military/ Note by the Saker: as a longtime wannabe “Putin agent” I am jealous of SouthFront!  Considering the superb performance of the Russian military everywhere in the recent years, I think that being accused of being “run by the Russian military” is the highest possible compliment.  I hope that I will deserve such a compliment one day too :-) The Saker
