All is Quiet on the Western Front?

Note: today I am happy to share with you a report written by a friend and reader, ‘Y’, who asked that I convey to you his words that “I am not presenting myself as an expert on the involved history and politics of Transcarpathia.

Reasonings on simple mistakes

by M. Khazinoriginal text here: http://worldcrisis.ru/crisis/1611264 translated by “A”About lessons of the last weeksThe correct technique of work for any politician in any situation consists in defining the main task at the moment and to solve it at any cost.  Including, at cost of situation deteriorating on other less important directions.  The USA can be an example here – when they define for themselves the main goal, they don’t stop

Original: El Murid LiveJournal (Anatoliy Nesmeyanov)Translated from Russian by Gleb Bazov / Edited by @GBabeuf Over the course of my stay in Donetsk I saw nothing that was markedly different from what is publicly known.

by Nikolai Starikov for Vzgiad(translated by the Russian Team) The West is so used to the one-sided game that they seem genuinely surprised that Russia has responded to the West’s sanctions against her.

Daashing out of Iraq: Recent Military Maneuvers (by Mindfriedo)

Daashing out of Iraq: Recent Military Maneuvers The timing of the Kurdish advance west in Daash held territory appears to be a well planned operation. Three events are significant.

The Ignominious Conclusion of the Kiev Junta’s July Offensive, July 30, 2014 Original: IAC Cassad – M.V. Litvinovtranslated by Gleb Bazov   The Conclusion of July Activity As could have been expected, the last weekend of July was marked by yet another offensive gamble by the Kiev regime.

The consent of Germany to economic sanctions against Russia will change Putin’s position and will accelerate Novorossiya’s victory

Open Letter to the Conscience of Humanity

by Roger Tucker Editor and Publisher, One Democratic State It is only right and fitting that a proper response be made to the OpEd written by Moshe Feiglin, Deputy Speaker of the Knesset, and head of the Manhigut Yehudit (“Jewish Leadership”) faction of Israel’s governing Likud party, entitled My Outline for a Solution in Gaza http://www.voltairenet.org/article184845.html and published in Arutz Sheva on July 15th, 2014. 1.

The “friendly” Mr. Steinmeier

by Dagmar Henn There can be no doubt, western media are full of propaganda. The claims that are in the centre of this propaganda, are almost identical. They are: 1. The crash is the fault of the Militia. 2. The Militia obstructs the investigations   a. the Militia confines access to the site of the crash   b. the Militia does not confine enough access to the site.   c.

by NoBC4U for No Bread And Circuses For You  original link: http://bread-circuses-today.blogspot.ca/2014/07/meanwhile-back-in-kiev-and-elsewhere-in.html  Reports from various sources along with “man on the street” observations.
