Obama’s Sudden Visit to Saudi Arabia

...Vice President Joe Biden was to take part in the funeral of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah, but Obama cut short a day his visit to India so that he could travel to Riyadh on January 27 to pay respects to Saudi royals too... The Obama’s rush to the Arabian Peninsula was belated from point of view of ritual and premature from point of view of protocol. It displayed the Washington’s anxiety over the situation in the Middle East. The attempt to impose the US policies on the new Saudi leadership was just too obvious... Saudi Arabia, the world leading oil supplier and a bulwark of US Persian Gulf policy, happens to be in a precarious situation and Washington has a hand in it...

West Africa: The Approbation of a New World Order

The number of conflicts in Africa continues to grow, with more and more new countries getting drawn into them. The situation in West Africa is particularly grave; this part of the continent is being threatened with total destabilisation... The West Africa of today has become a major testing ground where a new model of global governance is being developed... It goes without saying that this system is not only being developed for Africa.

The «Black Knights» are the Partisan Fighters in an Economic War

Occasionally while discussing issues related to the West’s economic sanctions against various countries, the subject of the «black knights» crops up. The term «black knight» is given to the small trading partners of a country that is affected by sanctions. They act as intermediaries, facilitating trade and economic relations between that country and the rest of the world... There was a time when «black knights» were not taken seriously... But events of recent years have shown that the thousands of «black knights» now in operation have formed a critical mass, so their potential capability is already comparable to that of the large corporations. And the attempts by those who have introduced the sanctions to monitor the «black knights» are close to zero percent effective.

Mariupol: Who Pulled the Trigger?

...Americans and their puppets in Kiev still cherish the plans to involve Russia in the war and make it bring its military to the Ukraine’s territory. Then they could openly accuse Russia of being an aggressor, mobilize the world community and make the conflict escalate much further. Russia does not want to play by these rules. That’s why Ukrainian military shelled Mariupol – Ukraine has to do the job by itself.

Liberation of Auschwitz – Heroic Deed of Red Army

...The attempts to destroy the memory of the liberation mission fulfilled by the Soviet Union and its Army during WWII have become so frequent that it starts to look like historic vandalism... We’d better listen to the victims of German concentration camps who are still alive and who greeted the Soviet liberators than pay attention on what Neo-Nazi sponsors from Washington, Berlin and Kiev have to say on the occasion. Noah Flug, the late Chairman of the Center for Holocaust Survivor Organizations in Israel, has said that Jews remember that 65 years ago Majdanek and Auschwitz were liberated by Soviet soldiers and the Red Army. In ghettos and concentration camps, the Red Army was the people's last hope, it saved them, defeated Hitler, and saved Europe.

Rating Weapon of Economic War

At the beginning of 2015 economic ratings given to Russia’s economy appeared in the West to cover the previous year, offer the forecasts for the current year and even for the period of 2016-2017... On January 13 Fitch rating agency downgraded the ratings of 13 Russian companies, including Gasprom, Lukoil and Russian Railroad Company. At the same time it was reported that Standard & Poor’s, another world rating agency, could soon downgrade the Russia’s sovereign rating to “junk” status. Moody’s, one more agency of the Big Three group, is also expected to join in the virtual game of Russia’s downgrading... The ratings cannot be taken at their face value because they have nothing to do at all with the real state of Russian economy. The «Big Three» ratings are a weapon of economic war unleashed against Russia in March 2014. It’s an instrument of psychological pressure. They are planned as self-fulfilling forecasts... My assessments of the world rating agencies’ products are easy to understand. I believe they are nothing else but the results of manipulations, cheatings, falsifications, racket, the instruments of sanctions, the activities of world cartel, conspiracies and subversive activities...

New Saudi King Was Major Supporter of Al Qaeda

The new king of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud, the half-brother of King Abdullah, who died in his early 90s from complications from pneumonia, is expected to rule with a more Wahhabist-oriented religious bent... Salman’s devotion to Saudi security is hypocritical at best due to his past support for Al Qaeda, including some of the individuals implicated in the 9/11 attack on the United States. It is Salman’s involvement with financing 9/11 and other terrorists that will likely reinforce the Obama administration’s refusal to declassify 28 missing pages from the 2002 Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the intelligence failures surrounding the attack. As the then-governor of Riyadh, Salman’s name likely appears as a “big fish” in the redacted 28 pages from the Senate report...

On the Possible Losses for Banks Should the West’s Economic War against Russia Continue

...Despite the difficulty of a comparison, one can nevertheless argue with some confidence that the foreign assets of Russian banks in the narrow sense of the term (international claims) are significantly less than the total claims of foreign banks on Russian banks and companies. At the same time, however, the foreign assets of Russian banks are located almost exclusively in those countries involved in economic sanctions against Russia. Should the West impose any kind of sanctions on the foreign assets of Russian banks, then this could have a painful impact on the Russian banking system. In this regard, the task of withdrawing Russia’s banking assets from Western countries and moving them to other jurisdictions is crucial, first and foremost to countries in the Customs Union and the Eurasian Economic Union, and then to BRICS countries.

Hypocrisy Empire (II)

This is the year of great events in the United States as the country marks the 150-year anniversary of the Civil War. No other moment of American history has influenced more its national self-identification. The war has become an inalienable part of political mythology and a symbol of atonement as the country washed away the sin of slavery established in the society since the nation was born. It is perceived as the triumph of good over evil. In reality it was not a war to free slaves - this perception has nothing to do with real historic events and shows how hypocritical the whole US national ideology is. The free interpretation of national history to foster the self-esteem of Americans and the US prestige leads to the same attitude practiced by American researchers toward the historic heritage of other countries as well...

Davos – 2015

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas. The Forum is best known for its annual winter meeting in Davos, a mountain resort in Graubünden located in the eastern Alps region of Switzerland... The Forum appears to be democratic from outside but its activities are more and more questioned every year. More often it comes under harsh criticism. Experts remember that the WEF generated the ideas of economic globalization to meet the interests of transnational corporations. The critical remarks are made on different aspects of the Forum’s activities... Davos-2015 will probably be the most difficult WEF meeting for Russia. It can be the last one. The romance that has lasted between Russia and the West for more than twenty years is over.

Brussels’ New Russia Sanctions Fuel for Eventual EU Bonfire

...Moreover, the leftwing Syriza government has denounced EU sanctions against Russia as baseless and has openly welcomed fraternal relations with president Vladimir Putin and Moscow. The inauguration of Alexi Tsipras as Greek prime minister also this week marks the election of the first EU government that is explicitly anti-austerity and vowing to repudiate the authority of Brussels. The European Council, led by former Polish president Donald Tusk, decided to extend travel bans and asset freezes on a list of Russia officials allegedly over the violence in Ukraine...
