Making sense of Russian political ambiguities

[This article was written for the Unz Review] Introduction: the world is not Hollywood The past couple of weeks saw a number of truly tectonic events taking place simultaneously in the USA, in Russia, in Israel, in Syria, in Iran and in the EU. I think that it would also be reasonable to say that most of those who opposed the AngloZionist Empire have felt feelings ranging from mild disappointment

The Skripals will most likely never be allowed to talk

[This column was written for the Unz Review] There have been major developments this week, all of them bad, including Putin re-nominating Medvedev as his Prime Minister, and Bibi Netanyahu invited to Moscow to the Victory Day Parade in spite of him bombing Syria, a Russian ally, just on the eve of his visit. Once in Moscow, Netanyahu compared Iran to, what else, Nazi Germany. How original and profound indeed!

Medvedev re-nomination: this does not look good

Just a quick note here (since I am inundated by emails about this): there is no way I can put a positive spin on the fact that Putin has re-nominated Medvedev as Prime Minister.  I am personally bitterly disappointed and so are many others.  A comment I just saw on the YouTube chat of the inauguration was succinct and to the point: “Путин кинул народ – мы не за Медведева

The Warmakers

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] Between the US strikes on Syria in April and the recent developments on the Korean Peninsula, we are in somewhat of a lull in the Empire’s search for a new war to start. The always helpful Israelis, in the person of the ineffable Bibi Netanyahu, are now beating the drums for, well, if not a war, then at least some kind of

Why Orthodox Churches are still used as pawns in political games

[This article was written for the Unz Review] First, a disclaimer: today I am going to touch upon a subject which is intensely painful for me and which will get quite a lot of my readers angry at me. Frankly, I did everything I could, not to discuss this issue on the blog, because I know, out of my personal experience, that discussing this topic is mostly futile and typically

Saker book review: POKÉMON IN UKRAINE – Tactical War Game Introduction MANUAL

Dear friends, I thought I should take the time to sit down and draw your attention to a very interesting and original book written by my Director of Research, Scott Humor, entitled “POKÉMON IN UKRAINE: Tactical War Game Introduction MANUAL“.  The very first sentence is the book is a disclaimer: “This book is a work of fiction. This manual is for illustrative purpose only“.  Really? The book is an in-depth

The DPRK declares itself a nuclear power

Note by the Saker: please read carefully what this official statement says.  There are two key elements here, first, the DPRK has successfully completed its program of nuclear tests and ballistic missiles test and, second, the DPRK will now act as a responsible nuclear power and never use its nuclear power unless she is attacked.  In plain English this simply means: we made it, you could not stop us, now

Each “click” brings us one step closer to the “bang!”

[This column was written for the Unz Review] Trump pulled the trigger, but instead of a “bang!” what the world heard was a demure “click”. Considering that we are talking about playing a most dangerous game of potentially nuclear Russian AngloZionist roulette, the “click” is very good news indeed. But, to use the words of Nikki Haley, the US “gun” is still “locked and loaded”. There are a number of

Alas, this is far from over!

Let’s begin by a short summary of events. About a month ago Nikki Haley announces to the UNSC that the USA is ready to violate the rules of this very self-same UNSC should a chemical attack happen in Syria Then the Russians announced that they have evidence that a chemical false flag is being prepared in Syria Then a chemical attack (supposedly) takes place (in a location surrounded and, basically,

The new US concept of a “perfect” mission: 32 out of 103

Yup, he said “mission accomplished“, “perfectly executed” and that he was “so proud” of his “great military“. That considering that 71 out of 103 missiles were intercepted. That there were no Syrian (or Iranian or Russian) fatalities. That not a single airfield was hit. That the buildings destroyed were empty. That only Syrian air defense were used. That Russian air defenses were completely bypassed. This guy: Called the strikes “Precise,

The US message to the world: Bow down and worship me!

Dear friends, I just wanted to let you know that I am aware of the situation.  Frankly, I have already said everything I had to say about the so-called ‘West’ in the following articles: AngloZionist options (intermediate report) UPDATED What price will mankind have to pay for the collapse of the Empire? and I don’t have much to add on substance. Tonight all I ask you to follow the advice

What price will mankind have to pay for the collapse of the Empire?

“I am surrounded, they are outside, I don’t want them to take me and parade me, conduct the airstrike, they will make a mockery of me and this uniform. I want to die with dignity and take all these bastards with me. Please my last wish, conduct the airstrike, they will kill me either way. This is the end commander, thank you, tell my family and my country I love

The Saker interviewed (in French) for Antipresse.net

Yesterday I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Slobodan Despot, writer and publisher, the founder of Xenia publishing in Switzerland, the Chief editor of ANTIPRESSE.net and the author of the books “Le Miel” and “Le Rayon bleu” (Gallimard).  Considering the hugely negative role the Macron administration is currently playing in the Syrian crisis (and the Skripal false flag) and the deafening silence of the French political elites,  I would

Just look at these headlines aka the writing on the wall (UPDATED!)

UNSC fails to pass 3 resolutions on Syria ‘chem attack’ as Russia calls for restraint Macron says US, UK & France to decide on ‘response’ to alleged Syria chem attack in coming days Europe air traffic control issues alert over ‘possible air strikes on Syria within 72 hours’ NOTAM and navigational warnings in force on Wednesday, 11 April 2018. – only usual Russian Navy firing exercise ‘We hope you come

AngloZionist options (intermediate report) UPDATED

An AngloZionist attack on Syria appears to be inevitable and imminent.  There is always a chance of a major pushback from some putative mentally sane, realistic and patriotic generals in the Pentagon, but I am not holding my breath (I asked two of my best informed friends about that, they both told me to forget about it).  Counting on those who have made a life obeying orders to suddenly refuse

So it was the ‘invincible Tsahal’

Okay, now we know: yesterday panic about a US attack on Syria was all about the “invincible Tsahal” making the usual symbolic attack against some “Iranian” forces in Syria.  These guys were so totally macho and cool that they did not even bother informing Russia, and so totally loyal that they did inform the USA.  The final score is as follows: 5 out of 8 missiles intercepted (you can see

Missile strikes on Syria tonight: do not rush to conclusions + please post here what you hear

Okay, I am getting flooded with email of tweets and FB reports and articles about missiles strikes in Syria.  My first reaction EVERYBODY WAIT! DO NOT JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS! We have no facts.  Some reports say that the USA attacked, other that it was Israel or even France.  The truth is that we won’t know for sure for at least 24 hours.  Whoever attacked will present that as a huge
