Putin, Lavrov and Xi Call for an End to MAD. Lord Russell’s Spectre Frowns

While many foolishly celebrated the success of MAD with the collapse of the Soviet Union, others recognised the grand sleight of hand as NATO continued to expand even though its raison d’être had disappeared.

US, NATO Consumed by ‘Black Sea Madness’

Whom the gods would destroy, Friedrich Nietzsche famously said, they first make mad. What would Nietzsche make of the current, truly mad US and NATO obsession with charging into the Black Sea?

The sale of the S-400 air-defense system to Turkey risks nullifying the stealth and cutting-edge advantages of fifth-generation fighters like the F-35 and F-22

Golunov Case: Opportunity for Cynical Western Meddling
June 14, 2019

A deplorable miscarriage of justice and apparent police corruption is, unfortunately, not something new in Russian or Western societies. The fact that Golunov was promptly released after higher authorities intervened at least shows an alacrity to rectify a wrongdoing.

The tactic most analysts predict is that Russia has advised President Bashar al-Assad that the best policy is to “chip away” at the area, and not unleash a major assault that would create chaos on Turkey’s doorstep.

‘Make Russia Prostrate Again’ Is the Only Thing US Democrats and Republicans Can Agree on
June 12, 2019

Despite the deep schism that separates America’s deranged political duopoly, they do share a common foreign policy pet project, and that is to prevent Russia from ever shining again on the global stage in all fields of endeavor.

Americans Pay Price for Criminal Wars From Mass Shootings at Home

America’s horrendous gun violence can be attributed to many factors, but there is one factor that is hardly talked about or explored in public discourse – the apparent link between mass shootings and the rampant culture of US militarism.

What Comes After Trump – World War III?
June 11, 2019

Trump appears unwilling to go down in history as the president responsible for kicking off nuclear Armageddon. But the deep state in control of US politics would surely be able to place into office someone who would advance the final justification for a headlong confrontation with Moscow and Beijing.

Don’t miss

As can be seen with the recent UN General Assembly vote, colonialism and neo-colonialism are no longer popular but they continue to have their desperate supporters.
The White House is contriving a phony war supportive of no conceivable national interest that is based on lies and might even include a “false flag” operation that will condemn Iran for something it did not do.
The USSR, with significant help from the rest of us, defeated Hitler and changed the world away from that dark and horrible future. At enormous cost.
The problem isn’t that Truman often misunderstood, but that he surrounded himself with people that his Party’s top donors liked. Truman wanted to be a progressive but ended up being only a liberal.
The escalation against Iran serves rather as camouflage for a considerably more profound civilizational and metaphysical conflict.
If President Trump had ever read Mackinder – and there’s no evidence he did – one might assume that he’s aiming at a new anti-Eurasia integration pivot centered on the Persian Gulf. And energy would be at the heart of the pivot.
Having been set up as a counterpart to the steely Hillary Clinton who was supposed to win the 2016 election, Freeland and her ilk have demonstrated their outdated thinking in everything they have set out to achieve since the 2014 coup in Ukraine.
Macron’s cynical exploitation of the Notre-Dame tragedy may well backfire. The real opportunity in this crisis is for the French people to see it as a symbol of ruinous government policies.
The saddest thing is that even if he survives in office until the 2020 vote (and he might not) Trump still will almost certainly be the lesser of two evils, in the manner to which we have become accustomed.
It is a fantasy to believe that Trump has been freed by Mueller’s goose egg. The Democrats will use his work as a starting point (not as a finish) to keep digging into Trump’s private and business affairs to find something for which they can impeach him.

Trump’s Middle East ‘Deal of the Century’ and his ‘Kosher Quartet’
June 10, 2019

The June 25-26, 2019 “peace conference” scheduled for Manama, Bahrain and attended by the United States, Israel, a few Palestinian quislings, and sell-out Arab states is nothing more than a rubber stamp on the future virtual annexation of the West Bank by Israel.

Russian Aggression Comes From Media Racism

The “good guy vs. bad guy” racist narrative that Russia is on the bad end is propping up an ultimately artificial conflict with the US. It is time to acknowledge the reality that there are numerous cultures on Earth that want to be powerful and prosperous.

Trump Is Not Extricating Himself on Iran. He Is Being ‘Dug in’
June 10, 2019

The consensus on ‘no conflict’ unfortunately, may turn out to have been overly sanguine. This is not because Trump consciously desires war, but because the hawks surrounding him, particularly Bolton, are painting him into a corner.
