More Incoherence in Syria Policy

Australia is the latest U.S. ally to join the bombing campaigns against Islamic State militants inside Syria, but the incoherence of the strategy is underscored by Washington’s continuing refusal to negotiate seriously with the Syrian government about a realistic political settlement of the war, writes Greg Maybury.

NATO's Australian Balistics Expert Dr Stephan Fruehling Proved to Be a Fake

Out of the so called experts that have been repetitively used in western media to prove that ‘Russian Separatists’ shot down MH17 one of them has jumped out at me the so called ‘Australian Ballistics Expert’ Dr Stephan Fruehling from the SDSC at the Australian National University.

Australian Greens Senator Talks of War with China

Acting Greens leader, Senator Scott Ludlam, made statements last week that are noteworthy not only for their content, but for the fact that they generated absolutely no controversy or debate within the Australian media and political establishment.

Australia annexed a self-governing territory and the world remained silent

When Ukraine threatened the autonomous status of Crimea, the people of that territory on March 16, 2014 voted in a popular referendum to declare independence from Ukraine and apply to join the Russian Federation as an autonomous republic. The results of the referendum were overwhelmingly for independence and retrocession to Russia with 96.7 percent of eligible voters opting for separation from Ukraine...

Five Eyes and Color Revolutions

A recent release of Edward Snowden-provided classified PowerPoint presentation from the National Security Agency (NSA) provides a rather detailed description of how the FIVE EYES signals intelligence alliance of the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand has conspired with the promoters of social media-based revolutions, such as the «Arab Spring», to bring about the collapse of democratically-elected or otherwise stable governments. However, the PowerPoint slides were partially redacted in key areas by the dubious censors of First Look Media, financed by e-Bay founder and multi-billionaire Pierre Omidyar...

FIVE EYES Neo-colonialism in the Pacific Region

The recent revelations from the documents provided by National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden that the NSA’s two Pacific partners, the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) and Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) conduct wholesale eavesdropping on the communications of the island nations of the Pacific may not be “news” but the reaction to the surveillance by regional leaders points to the neo-colonialism practiced by the NSA’s FIVE EYES intelligence partners...

Terrorism on Russia and Western Double Standards

Let’s charitably, for the moment, call it a Western-centric view. But one thing is unmistakable: the Western mainstream news media have a reprehensible double standard when it comes to their coverage of terrorist attacks against Russia compared with incidents in Western countries... The Sydney hostage taker was clearly motivated at a personal level by Islamist extremism... However, that did not stop Western news media and Western governments going into overdrive in their reaction to the siege. There were swift statements of «solidarity» and «prayers» from the US, British and Canadian governments sent to Australian premier Tony Abbott... Now contrast this media frenzy with the downbeat Western reaction to an actual terrorist attack less than two weeks ago in the Russian republic of Chechnya...

Tony Abbott: America’s Useful Idiot Down Under

After Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s unfulfilled threat to physically «shirt front» Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G-20 conference in Brisbane, Abbott did manage to undiplomatically insult the Russian head of state by telling him not to recreate the «lost glories of tsarism and the old Soviet Union»... Just before the G-20 conclave, Abbott was loudly booed by the public when he arrived at the Sydney Town Hall for the funeral of Australia’s last true Labor Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam. Abbott’s history as a provocateur for the United States and the Central Intelligence Agency is well-known to Australians who recall how the CIA engineered the ouster of Whitlam in a 1975 «constitutional coup»...

Australian imperialism: Political attack dog for US war drive

The recent remarks by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott that he was going to “shirtfront” Russian President Vladimir Putin over the downing of Malaysian Airlines MH17 at the summit of G20 leaders in Brisbane next month may at first sight appear somewhat bizarre.  But far from being a strange antipodean outburst, Abbott’s remarks are an expression of intensifying geo-political tensions, especially the US push against Russia, and the increasing replacement of diplomacy with militarism and sabre-rattling.

Russia Breaks EU Blockade

On June 24 President Vladimir Putin wound up his visit to Austria – the second trip abroad after the situation in Ukraine took a turn for the worse.  He went to Normandy in early June to take part in the 70 th Anniversary of D-Day commemoration. The launching of the «the second front» delivered a powerful blow against the US-led anti-Russian European alliance. The summit in Austria laid a foundation for Russia’s further economic cooperation with Western partners... It’s an open secret that many Western leaders perceive these issues as intertwined... Some circles in Brussels try to play an «anti-Russian» card at the time the European Union is unable to refuse the role of obedient junior partner of the United States.

Noose Tightens on Turkey’s Sultan of Swing
