What kind of “popular revolution” is this?!

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] I have to say that I am amazed that so many folks on the Left seem to think that the current riots in the USA are a spontaneous rebellion against police violence, systemic racism, and history of persecution and exploitation of Blacks and Indians, etc.  As for the violence, looting and riots – they are either excused as a result of some

The Empire takes a knee. Let it. But we don’t have to!

[This article was written for the Unz Review] It is quite interesting to observe how many commentators are completely misreading the current race riots or compare them with previous race riots in the history of the USA.  I suppose that by telling themselves that these latest riots are “just like” or “not nearly as bad” as past US race riots they try to reassure themselves by maintaining the illusion that

Did Trump just cancel a potential double-war?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] At this time of writing, it is too early to declare the danger over, but at least three out of five Iranian tankers have made it safely to Venezuela (confirmation from TeleSur and PressTV).  Furthermore, while we should never say “never”, it appears exceedingly unlikely that the US would let three tankers pass only to then try to impede the arrival of

Will Trump really start *two* wars instead of “just” one?

[Note: this article was written for the Unz Review] Amidst the worldwide pandemic induced scare most of us have probably lost track of all the other potential dangers which still threaten international peace and stability.  Allow me to list just a few headlines which, I strongly believe, deserve much more attention than what they got so far.  Here we go: Military Times: “5 Iran tankers sailing to Venezuela amid US

What does the Empire’s agony mean for the “Jewish state of Israel”?

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] First, let’s begin with a few (apparently unrelated) recent news items: The latest US PR disaster in Venezuela shows that the AngloZionist Empire truly is agonizing.  While this is hardly the first that that a US “special operation” goes down in an embarrassing  failure, but even by US standards this latest disaster in Venezuela is painfully humiliating.  Even more humiliating are the reports

Is there a 6th column trying to subvert Russia?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] For those of us who followed the Russian Internet there is a highly visible phenomenon taking place which is quite startling: there are a lot of anti-Putin videos posted on YouTube or its Russian equivalents. Not only that, but a flurry of channels has recently appeared which seem to have made bashing Putin or Mishustin their full-time job.  Of course, there have

The AngloZionists are launching a strategic PSYOP against China

[This column was written for the Unz Review] Maybe the “the Russians did it” narrative is getting stale.  Or maybe the leaders of the Empire have finally figured out that China is even more dangerous to the Empire than Russia.  But my personal gut feeling is simply that the AngloZionists are freaking out about the “full-spectrum” loss of face they suffered with their massive mishandling (medically and, even more so,

NWO, globalism and US “leadership” – RIP (UPDATED!)

[this analysis has been written for the Unz Review] “And the unbelievers plotted and planned, and God too planned, and the best of planners is God” Quran, Sura Al-Imran (The Family of Imran) – 3:54 It has been pretty obvious for many years already that the AngloZionist Empire was not viable, that it had to tank sooner or later.  There were two main scenarios which were typically considered for this

A few recent political developments which should not go unnoticed

[This column was written for the Unz Review] The COVID19/SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is, by any measure, an immense planetary crisis which will probably change the world we live in forever.  Still, there are other issues which are maybe not quite as dramatic and important, but which deserve not to be forgotten.  Here are some of those The grand betrayal of Tulsi Gabbard: it was pretty clear to most observers that Tulsi

Reading the “traitors” – a good or a bad idea?

[this article was written for the Unz Review] There are two names which often trigger a very strong and hostile reaction from many Russians:  Alexander Solzhenitsyn and Vladimir Rezun aka “Viktor Suvorov”.  The list of accusations against these two men usually includes: Alexander Solzhenitsyn: he made up numbers about 66 million people killed by the Soviet regime, he spoke favorably of General Andrei Vlasov, he was a CIA stooge, he

Understanding why they lie and why they get away with it

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] In lieu of an normal introduction: the eternally evolving BDA Friends, the Pentagon did it again.  Through CNN, of course.  Here is this “latest news”: Over 100 US service members have been diagnosed with mild traumatic brain injuries in the wake of the January 8 Iranian missile attack on the al Asad military base in Iraq, according to a US official with

U.S. posture in the Middle-East: preparing for disaster

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] Lies, damn lies and statistics Turns out that Trump and the Pentagon were lying. Again. This time about the true impact of the Iranian counter-strike on US forces in Iraq. First they claimed that there were no injured U.S. personnel, only to eventually have to fess up that 34 soldiers had suffered traumatic brain injury (which Trump “re-classified” as a “headache”).  Then

The new Russian government: a much needed evolution but not a revolution

[this column was written for the Unz Review] The suspense is over and we now know the names of all the members of the new Russian government.  You can, for example, take this good summary published by RT. What is important right now is not only what did happen, but also what did NOT happen.  I will begin with two extremely important things which did NOT happen: First, the Russian

Could this (finally!) be the end for the Atlantic Integrationists?

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] By now we all have heard the news, the entire Russian government has resigned and a new Prime Minister, Mikhail Mishustin, has been appointed.  And we also know that the Internet has exploded with all sorts of speculations about what this all could mean. Alas, until we know who will be included in the new government, there is very little we can

Can Russia (or Iran) survive without China?

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] In a recent article entitled “China, Bolivia and Venezuela are proof that social democracy cannot thrive in the global capitalist order” my China-based friend and correspondent Jeff J. Brown asked me an exceedingly interesting and important question.  He wrote: Russia is a social democracy, with a large, successful people owned industrial sector and many social services for the 99% from the Soviet

Revisiting the win-win-win-win outcome in Syria

[this analysis was written for the Unz Review] In his recent article “The Road to Damascus: How the Syria War Was Won” Pepe Escobar summarized the outcome of the war in Syria in the following way: “It’s a quadruple win. The U.S. performs a face saving withdrawal, which Trump can sell as avoiding a conflict with NATO ally Turkey. Turkey has the guarantee – by the Russians – that the

Russia’s kidnapping problem

[this article was written for the Unz Review] No, this will not be an article about Russians kidnapped in Chechnia (that was a very long time ago) or somewhere in a combat zone.  I will be talking about the USA and Iran.  First, here are a few links for context: About the FBI’s illegal detention of parliament member Inga Iumasheva “Imagine FSB interrogating a US senator? FBI agent questions Russian
