Bolivia – A Color Revolution – or a New Surge for Latin American Independence?

by Peter Koenig for The Saker Blog Like Túpac Katari, indigenous Aymara leader more than 200 years ago, confronting the Spaniards, Evo Morales was betrayed and ‘dismembered’ by his own people, recruited and paid by the agents of the most destructive, nefarious and murderous dark elite that governs and has governed for over two hundred years our planet, the United States of America.

Venezuela – Another Failed Coup Attempt – What’s Next?

by Peter Koenig  for The Saker Blog In the early morning hours of 30 April, 2019, the self-declare “Interim President”, Juan Guaidó, launched what at first sight appeared to be a military coup – Guaidó calls it “Operation Freedom” (sounds very much like a Washington-invented title) – against the democratically elected, legitimate government of Nicolas Maduro. With two dozen of defected armed military from the Carlota military base east of

Venezuela – Still on the Brink?

by Peter Koenig for The Saker Blog The silence is almost deafening. Is it the quiet before the storm? – Or is the US giving up on Venezuela? I don’t think so. It’s more like a regrouping after a first defeat, well, it’s a multiple defeat, if we start counting since the failed coup attempt against Hugo Chavez on 11 April 2002. However, Washington is not giving up. The first

Israel to Police European Coastlines – Protecting the Continent from Refugees?
