Full Spectrum Economic War has replaced Trade War

by Chris Faure for The Saker Blog The Trading Community I grew up in the dark continent on farms, where, in the local trading town, my parents owned the meat businesses, the Jews owned the general store, the Indians owned the fabric store and sold shoes and pointy bras.  My mom owned the fashion store and hairdresser. Of course, there was the mechanic who fixed cars and tractors and big

Sitrep : If you want to wage a trade war, don’t march on Beijing

by Chris Faure, for The Saker Blog Let’s clarify, a trade war is a war. Let’s clarify, world trade is not a zero sum game where you have a winner and a loser. Where we are in geopolitical danger levels, we’ve reached the same danger levels in world economics this past week and through this morning in the trade war, US vs China. Let’s clarify, the US administration, Mr Trump’s

Notre-Dame Sitrep

By Dominique Muselet, 16 April 2019 Translation : François Roddier for The Saker Blog What does the fire of Notre-Dame mean ? Notre-Dame, “the whole history of Paris” as bobo Hidalgo* said, all happy to be at the center of a catastrophe of which she does not think herself responsible (although she is), has resisted more than 800 years of attacks of all kinds. Neo-capitalism got her!, with its cheap

Sitrep: ASSANGE and the patriots

By Chris Faure for The Saker Blog It is hard to believe that Assange may end up in the tender care of the vicious: those that run Washington; those that treat Venezuela with state terror; and who daily kill in Syria, in Yemen, in Afghanistan, and a dozen other places. Shame, Shame on those that are celebrating this miscarriage of justice and attack on freedom.  Shame on Democratic Sen. Joe

Ecuador SITREP: How Corrupt History Repeats Itself

by Stephen Karganovic for The Saker Blog The expulsion of Julian Assange from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, scarcely a surprise after many heavy hints were being dropped that it was in the works, is outrageous on many counts. Not the least of those is the fact that Assange was made citizen of Ecuador by the government preceding that of the almost offensively misnamed current President, Lenin Moreno. Ecuador has,

Naval mini sitrep

by NatSouth for The Saker Blog Project 636.3 Kilo improved class submarine  ‘Krasnodar’ made a rare southbound transit through the Bosphorus. This is due to the Montreux Convention Article 12 only allowing submarines from Black Sea coastal states to exit the Black Sea for repairs. The last time this happened was with the transit of the ‘Alrosa’ for engineering repairs in late spring 2011. The ‘Alrosa’ subsequently returned to the

SITREP France: Is Macron a puppet and, if yes, whose puppet is he?

Check out this video of Macron at the biggest Zionist event of the year in France, the infamous “CRIF dinner”.  If you don’t now what the CRIF is, do not bother with the Wikipedia article – it’s all sanitized – but think of the French CRIF like (AIPAC+JINSA+ADL+B’nai B’rith)2: all the power of the Israel Lobby in the USA, but squared (yeah, I know, hard to imagine, but true). Now

The Minister of Defense of Venezuela rejects Trump’s blackmail against his country

For the Saker Blog – a translation collaboration between Deena Stryker and our own amarynth with Deena doing the first rough translation and amarynth doing the subsequent heavy lifting. While this is a quick translation in the interests of time, and not word for word, it represents fairly the content and the context of the Defense Minister’s rejection. This was an excellent speech and we did not do it full

Gilets Jaunes SITREP

Do not expect the French medias, all owned by the French 1%, to be objective when speaking about the Yellow Vests. We shall then look at the Sputnik News France to get a fair vision of the phenomenon. Here is a translation made by Le Saker Francophone after the 8th act, hold on January 5th. By Fabien Buzzanca – January 9th 2019 – Sputnik France The Yellow Vests came back

Looking at the Lugansk People’s Republic November 11th Election

by GH Eliason in Novorussia for The Saker Blog For the November 11th election, I was asked to be a part of the International Election observer team Lugansk People’s Republic. It was an experience I won’t forget. Representatives from over 20 countries participated. Political views were represented across the spectrum from conservative to liberal to socialist to progressive. Although some of us were a little suspicious of others political views,

Novorussian elections SITREP

by Auslander for The Saker Blog International press has pretty much ignored the ongoing civil war between 404 and Novorossiya for the last year. However, for those in Novorossiya, be they far from the lines or near the lines, the war has not stopped and will not stop for another year at least. The casualties on both sides are daily, what was so euphemistically called ‘daily wastage’ in the ‘great

Eastern Mediterranean Naval SITREP

by LeDahu for The Saker Blog https://journal-neo.org/2018/09/27/an-ever-increasing-number-of-military-ships-arrives-to-the-eastern-meddit/ The last couple weeks in the Eastern Mediterranean could remind a casual observer of some sort of a military parade, with members of the US-led coalition bringing an ever increasing number of military assets to the region. The number of warships flying various flags being dispatched as a show of force to the Eastern Mediterranean has been increasing on a daily basis. The warships
