Syria US missile strike Naval Brief NB 05/17 April 08, 2017 by LeDahu

Another Naval Brief- an update, only because it seems that at times, when a Brief gets published, something spectacular happens shortly afterwards.   US destroyers “USS Ross” (DDG 71) & “USS Porter”, (DDG 78)     were the US Navy warships that launched Tomahawk strikes at the Shayrat airbase in the Homs region of Syria. Yet, more than half did not reach their targets. In a nutshell, $88.5m worth of

What does the Tao say about Europe and Islam?

by Ramin Mazaheri Look, we are just butting heads here, we Muslims and Europeans. Constantly arguing over whose ideology and culture is superior. And all the while the 1% of families who own 99% of the world’s wealth are just looking down and laughing at us as they read their stock tickers. And that 1% is multicultural, multiracial and practices multiple religions. They don’t care about European or Muslim or

Between a rock and a hard (South China) place

by Pepe Escobar for RT The Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, backed by the UN, essentially ruled that there is no legal basis for China to claim historic rights to vast sections of the South China Sea included in the ‘nine-dash line’. Here it is, in full legalese: “China’s claims to historic rights, or other sovereign rights or jurisdiction, with respect to the maritime areas of the South

Why we need to beat Russia

by Cathal Haughian 250,000 capitalists read the Financial Times, and it has been our undertaking to chronicle our understanding of capitalism via our book The Philosophy of Capitalism. A USA led team has answered the question ‘What is The Nature of the Monetary System?’ The Monetary system has three layers – the core is Religion and the unconscious mind – as they formed first. The outer layer is operational and

The IMF Changes Its Rules to Isolate China and Russia

by Michael Hudson for the Unz Review As Russia and Asia move to circumvent the stranglehold of an aging, U.S. dominated international financial and legal system with its promise of endless austerity and privatization by foreign investors, the IMF and World Bank double-down by making it more difficult for them to transact business and administer credit. A nightmare scenario of U.S. geopolitical strategists is coming true: foreign independence from U.S.-centered

The New Silk Road Increases the Strategic Importance of Karelia

by Sakari Linden Republic of Karelia and its Head Alexander Hudilainen have targeted their eyes and hopes to China.

South East Asia SITREP October 26th, 2015 by Joseph K

The situation in South East Asia these last two weeks has been relatively calm, but things are most certainly simmering away beneath the surface. This SITREP focuses on Vietnam’s “tightrope” diplomacy between the US and China, the situation in Myanmar as the country approaches elections, the ever-present danger of US provocations in the South China Sea, and finally, Russia’s developing relationship with ASEAN. Vietnam is changing… and so is the

Nepal’s Constitutional Crisis: The First Stage Of A Chinese-Indian Cold War?

by Andrew Korybko The relatively obscure and media neglected topic of Nepal’s growing constitutional crisis has the very real possibility of transforming into a larger proxy confrontation between China and India. Neither state stands to gain by falling into this strategic trap, but as their mutual neighbor’s destabilization only intensifies, and each Asian giant finds themselves increasingly supporting opposing sides, it might just take another small spark of violence to

China Develops Relations with Iran, Syria, Russia

by SouthFront On October 14, SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence stated that “China actively prepares for the participating in the Russian anti-ISIS operation“. As all our conclusions, this was grounded on the lots of work. Nonetheless, time to time, readers express doubts about our conclusions or even argue that we provide “wishful thinking” or kind of “patriotic believes” [SF’s editor: LOL]. So, we’ve decided to show a little of  our analyses’ backstage. Let’s check how the “alternative” anti-ISIS

China, IMF and SDR SITREP October 17th, 2015 by the Serbian Girl

Is China preparing for a “Super SDR” to challenge the US dollar? China has made every effort to bypass the US/EU financial institutions by creating parallel structures such as the AIIB, BRICS bank, launching initiatives such as New Silk Road, OBOR, and CIPs to replace SWIFT. They have also built-up their gold reserves in view of a possible gold-backed Yuan. So why is China so committed to the IMF? The
