The EU’s “suicide by reality denial”

This article was written for the Unz Review: http://www.unz.com/tsaker/the-eus-suicide-by-reality-denial/ What had to happen did happen. The EU, being the chain of weak links it is, did eventually give in, and the Dutch people were the first one to vote against the association with the Ukraine. Of course, the Euroburocrats can now find some reason to declare the vote invalid, they can declare that some law was violated, they can even

Europe in free fall

(Note: this column was written for the Unz Review http://www.unz.com/tsaker/europe-in-free-fall/) Europe is in free fall. Nobody can doubt that any more. In fact, the is EU simultaneous suffering from several crucial problems and any one of them could potentially become catastrophic. Let’s look at them one by one. The 28 member EU makes no economic sense The most obvious problem for the EU is that it makes absolutely no economic

Breaking news: Russia will completely stop the delivery of gaz through the Ukraine

First, I was a little skeptical. Then more and more sources confirmed what seems to be a fact: Russia will completely stop the delivery of gaz through the Ukraine and all Russian gaz will now flow through Turkey (see Bloomberg and LifeNews). Not only that, but the Russians have told the Europeans that if they want Russian gaz, they will have to build their own pipeline to Turkey at pay

The illegal arrest of Giulietto Chiesa – yet another example of European hypocrisy

by LeonardoOn December 15, 2014 the Italian reporter Giulietto Chiesa, who had been invited to take part in a conference in Tallinn on Russian-European relations, was detained by the Estonian authorities for a few hours after being declared “persona non grata“. Facts appear to point to a deliberate move on the part of the Estonian authorities meant to prevent the journalist from attending the conference, thus censoring the speech he

The self-evidently absurd “logic” of the EU

The latest EU decision against Russia is amazing it it’s self-evident stupidity.  The EU has adopted sanctions which will only be put into effect if the ceasefire does not hold.First, the obvious assumption here is that should the ceasefire not hold, it would clearly by Russia’s fault.  No, not the Novorussian’s fault, but Russia’s. art: Josetxo Ezcurra Second, apparently, the possibility that the Ukrainians might break the ceasefire was not

A telling illustration about the real nature of the US-EU relationship

Dear friends, Very little is really known about the inner workings of the US-EU relationship and the corporate media only serves us the official and completely meaningless propaganda line. During the war in Korea, General MacArthur’s insane threats to use nuclear weapons did trigger something of an European revolt (unlike the US, Europe was well within reach of Soviet bombers, including those with nuclear weapons). Could the absolute insanity of

My rant tonight – okay, I will try to clarify further

Okay, predictably some has misunderstood my rant as a change in heart.  Others wonder what has changed over the past 24 hours.  So let me clarify:1) No change of heart?  No – Putin did the right thing by waiting as long as was possible.  I just don’t believe that waiting is possible any more.  Why not?2) What has changed?  Not just words, but actions by Poroshenko.  I, along with many

Media rage in Russia – how long can the Kremlin resist it?

It is always tricky to try to get a sense of what is happening in a country by parsings its media as there is often a big disconnect between what the talking heads say and what most of the people really feel.  And yet, this can a useful exercise in the following circumstances:A) The media is pretty tightly controlled by the regime in power at which point is can be

Why Russia should withdraw from all European organizations

I have just watched another pure propaganda piece by the BBC about the OSCE observers being sent back at a Crimean checkpoint along some footage footage of a journalist being beat up and the sound of some shots which the BBC says were aimed at the tires of car.  I will ignore all of the nonsense reported by this so-called “journalist” whom Alain Soral would most definitely call “une pute“,

EU politicians reach a new landmark in mindless subservience to Israel

Recently, we had the EU politicians committing an act of “air piracy” on behalf of the USA, now we have the same folks committing an act of abject subservience to Israel: they have declared that the military wing of Hezbollah is a terrorist organization.  Of course, this statement has nothing to do with terrorism, it is an attempt at punishing Hezbollah for its successful intervention in the Syrian conflict.  The

Short update on the fallout following the “Imperial Skyjacking”

Here is a short update on the fallout following the “Imperial Skyjacking” of President Evo Morales’ airplane over Europe. Paris expressed “regrets” but did not present excuses. Demonstrators threw stones at the French Embassy in La Paz The Bolivian Parliament will demand the expulsion of the French, Italian and Portuguese ambassadors The Argentinian President Christina Fernandez de Krichner has declared that the Europeans “they have all gone completely insane!” UNASUR

The EU – acting on behalf of Uncle Sam – commits an act of piracy against a head of state!

Just on Monday I called the entire European political class “the worst hypocrites on the planet” along with a few other less-than-complimentary things. And this morning I learn this: ‘Imperial Skyjacking’: Bolivian presidential plane grounded in Austria over Snowden stowaway suspicions: not only did the governments of France, Portugal, Spain and Italy illegally close their airspace to President Morales’ presidential plane, the Austrians actually had the nerve to search it
