SITREP: Zhongnanhai, 10-8-2019 – The Real Hot War Against the Chinese Peoples Republic

by Larchmonter445 for The Saker Blog What the US just did regarding Human Rights in Xinjiang, blacklisting companies used by the China government and refusing visas for officials is pretty close to a last straw. Combined with financing, training and leading the HK protests, arming Taiwan with high level weapons systems (F-16s), and destroying the global supply chains, restricting export of semi-conductors, attacking Huawei all over the globe, imprisoning CFO

Breaking News: The Ukraine has signed the “Steinmayer formula”! (UPDATED 6x)

The Russian media is reporting from numerous sources that the representatives of the Ukraine have signed the Steinmayer formula. President Zelenskii is making a press conference confirming this. This is, of course, very good news.  It appears that the pressure of Trump and Macron has worked. Now the biggest danger comes from the Ukronazis who are already going hysterical and speaking of a “victory for Putin”. Zelenskii was put in

Tanker war SITREP

by Nat South for The Saker Blog British flagged ship with only 23 seafarers onboard of Indian, Russian, Latvian and Filipino nationality. UK flag, Swedish company. That’s a reflection today of commercial shipping industry for you.  All but in name. Ship operators are already getting cold feet over Brexit, so these latest incidents are going to further undermine operators using the UK as a flag of convenience. Seizure of commercial

Russia-China SitRep: Double Helix Strategic Coordination (by Larchmonter445)

by Larchmonter445 for The Saker Blog The Earth shifted today in Moscow. Two great civilizations embodied in two superpower nations grew closer than ever. Their leaders signed a new document enshrining their deepening relationship. The Double Helix evolves in demonstrable ways. President Xi and President Putin signed the multipage document (which clearly indicates more than just a terminology change from the former relationship title to the new one.) “The comprehensive strategic

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

Israel SITREP: The Christ-hating Israelis are at it again

Remember this: or, for that matter, this: Well, our Israeli friends have done it again, check out this article by RT: (just ignore all the explaining away and other cop-outs in the text of the RT article). ———- ‘McJesus’ statue sparks riot at museum in Israel as protesters call for removal of ‘offensive’ art An art exhibit featuring a crucified Ronald McDonald caused chaos in the Israeli city of Haifa
