Balkan Report: Pauvre Serbie, Pauvres Serbes

by Stephen Karganovic for The Saker Blog In World War I, there was a popular refrain in France and the West generally expressing sympathetic support for their gallant Serbian allies, who were standing up to combined enemy armies on the Salonica front: Pauvres Serbes… That refrain still very much resonates but is no longer exclusively confined to the moral sphere, as it largely was a hundred years ago. Today, it

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

Navy Brief 1/18 January 2018

by LeDahu The UK politicians and senior military officers at the helm of defence these days, seem to excel at outpourings of Russian scaremongering soundbites, which the UK MSM are too willing to relay, without any discussion or any criticism. I’m kind of wondering if there isn’t something in the water in Whitehall, that has led to a rash of anti-Russian outbursts of late. The UK media readily amplified the

Part 3 – Submarine rescue ships with the Russian Navy

by Le Dahu for The Saker Blog   I’m writing at the same time as an international search for the Argentine submarine, ARA ‘San Juan’, is underway. Last reported 250km off the coast of Patagonia, the ‘San Juan’, a German built TR-1700 Class, was already 48 hrs overdue, when the naval authorities made a public announcement. This comes when in the previous week, Russian Navy divers, have managed a dive

“Unsinkable” American Aircraft Carriers: Five Nonsensical Statements

Source: http://rusvesna.su/news/1509906530 Translated by Eugenia Recently, the American journal The National Interest published an article with a telling title: “5 Reasons Russia and China Might Not Be Able to Sink a U.S. Aircraft Carrier”(http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/5-reasons-russia-china-might-not-be-able-sink-us-aircraft-22471?page=2). The author of the article discusses these reasons in detail. All of them are, by the way, pretty self-evident. The first one turned out to be (do you believe this?) that “the American aircraft carrier is

Walmart Declares War on Amazon and other news

  In the U.S., Walmart declared an open war on Amazon by telling trucking companies that it will no longer do business with them if they continue moving goods for Amazon. Recently I had a lovely discussion about who should be called the new anti-Christ. First, anyone who attacks and kills Christians for their faith is an anti-Christ. Second, if  Christianity vanishes from earth, an anti-Christ would come as a messiah

SBU orders to destroy all evidence of the conducted special operation MH17

by Scott Humor If you want to know my opinion that hasn’t changed since 2014. The Boeing flight MH17 was shot down by the Ukrainian air force fighter jets, but not necessarily piloted by Ukrainian pilots. It was a CIA and NATO operation to frame Russia. Most likely the Dutch government was a part of this operation. Now, they are trying to hang all the dogs on Waltzman -Poroshenko, because
