Who’s Behind Washington’s New Anti-Russian Sanctions

US foreign policy is alienating billions of people to please a small fraction.

It took a while and came under time pressure – but passed swiftly and smoothly: Last week, congress pushed a new set of sanctions against Russia down Donald Trump’s throat. The pitiable president not only had to denounce his good understanding with his Russian colleague Vladimir Putin in the aftermath of the successful Helsinki summit under huge cartel (media) pressure  – but later obviously had little or no say in this new effrontery, according to aides. The latter called the decision-taking and deadline-driven process: „administration business as usual“...

Washington plans a coup in Iran

Deployment of a nuclear-capable US fleet in the Mediterranean Sea speaks a clear language, too.

The Islamic revolution in Iran would not have been possible without US support: Its leader Ayatollah Khomeini would never have made it into the flight from Paris to Tehran without CIA consent. This costly decision came under pressure: Had Khomeini not stepped in, a communist takeover was the likely alternative – and to Washington: anathema. But Khomeini never planned to become Washington’s errand boy and brazenly took apart the very commanding system, which Washington had installed in Tehran: a huge embassy compound covering a full block, from where all important Shah decisions were prepared and controlled...

Israel’s Support to IS

Final battle in Idlib: How far will Israel go?

It happened very quickly – and it happened at night during the last weekend: Israel suddenly opened its tightly sealed border with Syria and allowed 400-800 members of the “White Helmets” inside its territory, alongside their family members. They came with buses looking new and well-climatized and were kept inside a military camp directly behind the border. (“White Helmets” is a pure propaganda name for these supporters of terror and all sorts of crime, aspiring public relations gains by a designation proximity to the UN “Blue Helmets”. As if the questions involved were about colors.) Only very few media were allowed to cover the sensational story, which dwarfs every conspiracy theory.

But what do we call this story as compared t...

Trump-Putin Summit in Western Mainstream Media: A Bad Guy Meeting?

US and Russian presidents are equally not much liked – for no good reasons.

Gone are the times, when global war lingered – and the world held its breath while leaders haggled and struggled. This is 2018: Two aged presidents with a truly outstanding life experience record openly speak out for peace and understanding – and get chastised by a propaganda blast as if they had threatened mankind. There ‘s definitely something deeply wrong in the state of the western world, not only in their corporate media. And that state reaches even as far as Australia and New Zealand.

Intrigue and secret service fingering appeared almost shockingly unveiled in the run-up to the much-awaited summit in Helsinki – and obviously directed to disturb it...

Reliable Partners? EU Foreign Policy and the Iran Nuclear Agreement JCPoA

The world is watching how Washington’s vassals fail to stand up for their international reputation and fair treatment of contract partners – a turning point in EU history!
Pakistan’s famed president, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, truly lost no time. As soon as the ink was dry on the secret behind-the-scenes agreement with the US, allowing Pakistan development of its own nuclear weapon to balance Soviet-backed India’s, he set out on a sales trip unprecedented in world’s history and unparalleled ever since. This happened in 1972...

Future German-US Relations: A Cursed Fate?

The quasi-colonialist reclusive regime could yet again pitch Germans against their neighbors.

In 1988, the year before German re-unification came up, a then friend of mine, a dedicated CIA influence agent, US citizen told me about covert US preparation of re-unification: „In Germany, we are buying anybody with legs!“ He conducted his personal poll of friends: Would Germans be obedient after regaining their national unity? My diplomatic answer ran: „Germans will never forget, who helped them to win back their home country as a whole. But the stability of the friendship towards the US will depend on whether or not correct and fair democratic policies will continue.“

Not only did fair and correct policies not survive the downfall of the Soviet Union: Washington’s policies look nowaday...

Biological & Chemical Weapons: Who is the Bad Guy?

While blaming Moscow for its alleged role in the “Skripal” case, the US spends millions of dollars into secret labs along Russian borders.

The Skripal false flag operation in Salisbury, UK, and a huge hoax in Duma, Syria, including trained child actors, have stirred fresh debate on those dangerous weapons. That is basically good. However, in case the discussion lacks crucial facts, we are again advancing quickly on the wrong track.

Novichok inventor Vil Mirzayanov, 83, made himself heard in mid-March, while the anti-Russian Skripal operation was in full swing: only Russia could be behind this poisoning. Fact is: The US are back in that trade to an extent the Soviet Union (let alone: Russia) has never ever reached, issuing „81 recent patents using Novichok“...

May 8-9 approaching – NO lessons learnt in Berlin? Too little in the west?

The Russian embassy in Berlin is on full alert all the time: delegations, ceremonies, meetings, receptions without end. Veterans traveling.
That’s good.
What is missing is an open, warm, friendly signal from Berlin to our important European neighbor and partner: NEVER AGAIN, friends in Europe. Taking the eternally misguided Polish neighbor by the arm and telling him: ‚Let’s do this together – this time, once and for all. For countries in an uncomfortable middle position between strong neighbors, it’s not Brzezinsky who should be heeded and followed, but Bismarck. Believe me, I’m German, I’ve learned that the hard way.
But what I really and truly want is a clear signal: ‚Dear American friends, look: Where has your devastating foreign policy taken you? You separated successfully Russians and...

Putin-Poroshenko axis not likely to succeed – Washington unlikely to forsake strategy

It is certainly a good sign as well as a good idea, that both eastern European neighbors come together and settle affairs. But the US keep their firm strategic commitment against Russia’s growing strength as a number one global player in exports of energy resources. Whereas making the Europeans pay Ukraine’s debt may be in line with the US aim of weakening the Europeans – but certainly the winner is not only Ukraine and the US – but Russia as well. And that latter point is certainly no deal, which the US might deem acceptable or even tolerable.
