The European Union threatens to resort to the WTO against the United States

Sat, 2019-04-20 13:18
The European Union informed the United States government that it will resort to the World Trade Organization (WTO) if the US tightens its economic blockade against Cuba by enforcing chapter III of the Helms-Burton law. The United States has announced that it will enforce Title III of the Helms-Burton Act (Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity (Freedom) Act of 1996), thereby authorizing so-called "Cuban-Americans" to pursue legal claims for properties which were confiscated after the (...)

Hamas prepares for the overthrow of Mahmud Abbas

Sat, 2019-04-20 13:14
A senior Palestinian Authority official said that Hamas is preparing to overthrow Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in order to seize control of the West Bank. A similar attempt in June-July 2015 did not succeed. Although the Palestinian parliament confirmed Mahmoud Abbas as president of the Palestinian Authority, the legitimacy of the parliament and Abbas' Presidency is as questionable as that of Hamas itself, given that the last elections in the Palestinian territories took place 13 (...)

United States and France jointly responsible for famine in Yemen

Fri, 2019-04-19 21:25
A French military intelligence note dated September 2018 shows that Saudi Arabia is making extensive use of French armaments in its war against Yemen, specifically "Leclerc tanks, Archer artillery howitzers, Mirage 2000-9 fighter jets, Cobra radars, Aravis armoured vehicles, Cougar and Dauphin helicopters, Caesar cannons ...».

Statement of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs dealing with Emmanuel Macron's Reception of a Delegation of the so-called “Syrian Democratic Forces”

Fri, 2019-04-19 14:44
We condemn French President Emmanuel Macron's reception of a delegation of the so-called “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) which is dominated by PYD/YPG, the Syrian extension of the terrorist organization PKK. This attempt that aims to provide pseudo legitimacy to the extensions of the terrorist organization is an utterly wrong step which does not comply with the spirit of alliance. We once again remind the importance of not allowing the promotion of agendas targeting Syria's political unity (...)

Washington officials secretly evaluate the use of military force against Venezuela

Fri, 2019-04-19 13:18
The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a think tank linked to US transnational oil and weapons interests, held a secret round table in Washington about "Assessing the Use of Military Force in Venezuela", that is, to evaluate the possible use of military force against Venezuela. The American alternative information website Grayzone revealed that some 40 people - including officials from the State Department, National Intelligence and the National Security Council - (...)

"Arab NATO" project on very shaky ground

Thu, 2019-04-18 22:36
Just as the United States is about to reveal its self-denominated "Deal of the Century" plan for the Middle East, Egypt has announced - on April 14, 2019 - that it will not participate in the «Strategic Alliance of the Middle East», or the «Arab NATO». As the country with the Arab world's largest army, Egypt's withdrawal seriously undermines the entire project. Egypt considers that it does not have any common strategic objective with the other States which could form the alliance, nor does it (...)

Will the West allow the construction of railroads linking the Gulf and the Mediterranean?, by Thierry Meyssan

Thu, 2019-04-18 20:58
While the United States and their allies have deliberately created famine conditions in North Korea, then in Sudan, in Tunisia, and now in Yemen, they are also beginning to drag Syria down into starvation. The only way of avoiding this situation is by relaunching the regional economy, which collapsed during the wars in Iraq and Syria. Two projects for railroads are currently in competition – the first intended to develop the region, the second to divide it. Are the Westerners behaving like human beings, or are they pursuing their dream of world domination?

Can democracy be reduced to computers?

The strategy of controlled chaos, by Manlio Dinucci

Thu, 2019-04-18 15:07
Like a steamroller, the United States and NATO are extending to the world the Rumsfeld/Cebrowski strategy for the destruction of the state structures of countries which are not integrated into the globalised economy. For this, they are using the Europeans, whom they bamboozle into the belief in an alleged « Russian menace ». By doing so, they are running the risk of provoking a general war.

Germany wants nuclear bombers

Thu, 2019-04-18 14:46
Germany's armed forces are currently studying the possibility of acquiring nuclear bombers capable of using the new American B61-12atomic bombs. Meanwhile, the Pentagon itself plans to deploy these new atomic bombs in the German region of Eifel, in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The German air force already has multi-tasking Tornado warplanes, which are already capable of deploying American atomic bombs. But those aircraft are going to be replaced, possibly, by (...)

Counter-celebration in Florence of the 70th anniversary of NATO, by Manlio Dinucci

Thu, 2019-04-18 14:32
The political leaders of NATO gathered together to celebrate this anniversary, but without the presence of President Trump. At the same moment, and against the advice of the Alliance, Trump proposed a partial nuclear disarmament with China and Russia. From their side, a few peace militants called for an exit from NATO - a position which is pardoxically close to that of Donald Trump.

Three countries support plan for free movement of goods in the Levant

Tue, 2019-04-16 23:29
Iran, Iraq and Syria confirmed on April 14, 2019 their intention to launch a regional railway project to link the Iranian port of Khorramshahr, in the northern Arabian-Persian Gulf, to the Syrian coast in the Mediterranean, passing through Iraq. The initial decision on the project was taken in 2010 within the framework of the regional common market in place at the time, but its implementation was interrupted by the war which led to the dissolution of the regional common market and the (...)

According to Kurdistan24, DAESH (ISIS) used chlorine gas in Syria

Tue, 2019-04-16 23:28
An Iraqi court sentenced to death the Belgian citizen Bilal Abdoul-Aziz al-Marshouhi (aka "Abou Fadhil al-Belgiqi") for his membership of the Islamic Emirate terrorist organization (Daesh is known in the West as Islamic State or by its English acronym, ISIS). "I was born in Belgium and have Belgian nationality, despite my Moroccan origins (...) I studied engineering at the University of Antwerp. I became a jihadist after becoming friends with someone who read books that preached radical (...)

The UK allowed a criminal network to finance the Jihad

Tue, 2019-04-16 23:25
According to the Sunday Times, several consecutive British governments deliberately allowed a criminal network to embezzle 8 billion pounds sterling to finance the jihad. The Sunday Times claims that MI5 (the British internal security service) was unaware of these activities, but does not say who protected those funding the terrorist activity. This information confirms the investigative revelations of the French journalist Thierry Meyssan regarding the support which the United Kingdom has (...)

For their part, the NATO foreign (...)

Tue, 2019-04-16 18:31
“We are all heartbroken,” said UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay in front of the devastating fire that ravaged the historic Cathedral of Notre-Dame of Paris last night. The Cathedral is part of the World Heritage site of “Paris, Banks of the Seine” inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1991. The site includes bridges, quays and the banks of the River Seine, along the historical part of its course, between the Sully and Iéna bridges, the Ile de la Cité and the Ile St Louis. “Notre Dame (...)

The Overthrow of Omar el-Bechir, by Thierry Meyssan

Tue, 2019-04-16 15:02
Certain pockets of Sudan are still at war, and the Khartoum government is still military. Nothing has changed despite the fact that President Omar el-Bechir has been toppled. For Thierry Meyssan, Sudan's problem, after 30 years of dictatorship by the Muslim Brotherhood, is above all cultural. Current events have no relation with an aspiration for liberty, but only with freedom from starvation.

US State Department Note: Corruption and Chaos in Venezuela

Mon, 2019-04-15 22:33
“Maduro usurped power; he's not the duly elected president. Juan Guaidó is the person that the Venezuelan people chose. America and now 54 other nations simply have ratified that, have said, ‘Yep, we recognize that's what Venezuelans want.'” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, March 19, 2019. Venezuela's former regime, led by Nicolás Maduro, has consistently violated the human rights and dignity of its citizens, plundered the country's natural resources, and driven a once prosperous nation into (...)

1,000 Apologies, I had to remove my actual e-mail address from this page. I got really tired of sock puppets offering me free sexual favours. (And NO! I don't know how many of them were Russian, and it wouldn't change my vote!) So here's one of those crappy contact forms that I really hate. Did I mention I'm sorry?
