Informationskrieg gegen Russland ist Kriegsvorbereitung!

Russland Informationskrieg

Und jedem Anfang wohnt ein Zauber inne,

Der uns beschützt und der uns hilft, zu leben.

Aus: „Stufen“ – Gedicht von Hermann Hesse

Zur ersten vollen Amtszeit des schneidigen jungen russischen Präsidenten Putin schien noch alles in Ordnung. Am 25. September 2001 hielt er im Bundestag eine zu Herzen gehende Rede, auch mit großen deutschsprachigen Redeanteilen, hör- und sichtbar um äußerste Präzision bemüht. Deutschland wollte gute und engere Verbindungen, Russland sowieso. Doch Washington hatte längst anders entschieden – und das gab den Ausschlag...

INF als Testfall für die Zukunft

INF Testfall

Der jetzt einseitig von den USA gebrochene Vertrag über nukleare Mittelstreckenwaffen wurde 1987 unterschrieben und 1988 in Kraft gesetzt. So schlecht kann die Arbeit der Beteiligten nicht gewesen sein, mehr als 30 Jahre Laufzeit für einen derart technik-gesteuerten Vertrag sind viel. In den letzten 30 Jahren hat sich die Welt jedoch radikal verändert, mehrere neue Kräfte haben die Bühne betreten, allen voran China, jedoch auch Indien und Pakistan. Und beide Seiten, Russland und die USA, haben neue Waffensysteme und Techniken entwickelt, über die zu sprechen wäre – ein höchst lohnender Einsatz von Zeit und Kraft.

Unter diesen Umständen ist es eigentlich gar nicht nötig, einen derart bewährten Vertrag gleich in die Mülltonne zu werfen – das halbe Jahr „Karenzzeit“, das die USA ab de...

Afghanistan: 45 Jahre Unheil durch US-Politik

afghanistan-unheil

Für Washington war alles klar, 1974. Pakistan bekam das Recht, eine eigene Atombombe zu entwickeln und die Technologie weltweit in islamischen Ländern zu vermarkten – und musste dafür Trainingslager für Mudschaheddin einrichten, die durch Terrorangriffe in Afghanistan den wachsenden Einfluss aus Moskau unterstützter Kommunisten eindämmen sollten. Gulbuddin Hekmatjar, Gründer und Chef der Islampartei (Hezb-i Islami) Afghanistans, jetzt erneut ein Bewerber um die Präsidentschaft, gehörte damals zu den ersten Absolventen solcher Trainingseinrichtungen – diesem Autor* zeigten Absolventen in den 80er Jahren ihre pakistanischen Ausweise. Außerdem erhielt Pakistan milliardenschwere Finanzunterstützung, etwa 78 Milliarden US$ (Währungswert 2016) seit der Unabhängigkeit allein von den U...

Scandinavia On A Dangerous Path

Scandinavia

NATO’s continuous anti-Russian aggression increasingly reaches out to northern Europe for further escalation.

The US mercenary company „Mission Essential“, Ohio, is seeking personnel „speaking Russian and Norwegian to assist emergency secret operations of the U.S. military in Norway”, – reports US „Newsweek“ magazine, referring to Russian media and Maria Zakharova, Russian foreign affairs spokeswoman as of last week. Her accusation sounds highly credible: „American companies are recruiting staff in NATO member Norway to carry out provocations against Russia.“ Of course, Washington isn’t really delighted to see such efforts exposed – says „Newsweek“: „It is unclear why the Russian government was aware of the jobs being advertised by a U.S. security company...

Venezuela – Turning Point for US Hegemonism?

Venezuela-US

The revolutionary life achievement of president Maduro’s overarching predecessor Chávez nearly destroyed, forces gather to withstand Washington’s designs.

South American history changed course on February 15, 1898. In the evening of that day, a heavy explosion rocked the armored cruiser USS „Maine“, anchored in Havana harbor, which sank soon after, killing 266 US soldiers on board. The incident marks the first big-size US-made international false flag operation. From then on, Washington successfully widened its power space over South America – and through and after WW2 expanded globally. The situation in Latin America deteriorated to such an extent, that single-handed whistleblowers like the famous ex-CIA agent Philip Agee became global leaders of multi-pronged efforts to expose CIA agent...

Turkey Sends More Troops Into North-East Syria

Turkey Troops Syria Erdogan

Washington’s escalatory steps force Ankara to react – with potentially positive consequences for the stalled Russian-Turkish Sochi agreement. 

The news came Wednesday noon and were as brief as precise: Turkish president Erdoğan announced, that he plans to launch a military operation in North-East Syria in the coming days. Two weeks earlier, the US army was reported by a CIA-backed publication to have set up military installations, three in Tal Abyad and two in Kobane. Preparations show, that Erdoğan plans to move quickly:

  • – in previous days, Turkish army has brought army personnel of the 3rd Brigade as well as supplies to the Syrian border.
  • – on Wednesday, Turkish troops took down walls of the city of Ras al-Ain
  • – at the same time, US forces set up an observation post near the town of...

G20 Summit: Is the US Losing its Global Leadership?

G20 US leadership

Fact is, it’s the other way round: Global leadership has lost he US – and for good.

The Buenos Aires G20 summit cemented, what really is US president Trump’s political strategy: Washington does not even care for a US leadership role – it’s just cutting deals. Trade trouble with China? The intermediate fixing sounds easy and fair: Trump stops tariffs on 200 billion US$ imports from China – and Beijing agrees to buy more US goods, mainly in the sectors agriculture, energy and industry, but without commitment to defined thresholds as yet; and in the aftermath, Trump tweeted, that Chinese tariffs on US cars, recently raised to a whopping 40%, would be reduced; Beijing had lowered other cars‘ tariffs  from 25% to 15%...

The Hushed-Up Summit Success

Seven year-old Syria conflict gets a shiny new peace building format – while western propaganda media look the other way.

That’s certainly unprecedented but interesting and symptomatic: The biggest German daily „Süddeutsche“ squeezes a few lines on its front page governed by regional elections in  the state of Hesse and the umpteenth article on the truly terrible and deplorable synagogue killing spree in Pittsburgh, USA. Leading opinion shapers such as „Spiegel online“ and New York Times enumerate a few dry facts – and that’s it: Russian president Putin, his Turkish colleague Erdoğan, German chancellor Merkel and French president Macron met on a sunny Saturday afternoon in Istanbul overlooking the Bosporus...

Iran Under US War Threat

Imminent US cabinet reshuffle gives a hint on planning.

This is the special Trump way to fire a minister: Talk bad about him in public, hint he’s “on the way out” – and help raise the level of speculations about potential successors. All of this happens these days to US defense minister James “mad dog” Mattis. In the Mattis case, the US president even went so far as to describe his MoD as a „Democrat“, which, to his constituency three weeks from the midterm elections, may very well sound like „high treason“.

What’s the problem anyway with James Mattis, a very popular marine general? Looking at what the man actually does these days – is awesomely helpful to US interests: He’s seeking better military ties with China, to take that area of government out of the hot exchanges in the...

Syria: Erdogan’s Tough Choices

Sochi agreement on the demilitarized Idlib belt offers risks – and opportunities.

The chain of events is now allowing prognoses: After the fall of IS/Daesh strongholds in Duma/Damascus and Daraa the Syrian government and its allies Russia and Iran took quite a while to pick up the thrust and start attacking the HTS stronghold Idlib and the sounding areas close to Aleppo in the east and Hama in the south, where many other militia groups from a variety of political backgrounds are operating. Already in these weeks it became clear, that partner Turkey slowed down the momentum of Syria’s liberation of terror militias...
