damascus missile defence airstrikes

I spoke with PressTV in the immediate aftermath of the F.UK.US. airstrikes against Syria late last week.

I describe Israel as the “quiet elephant in the room” and noted that despite US influence over events in Syria being largely trumped by Russia in recent years, the tripartite alliance of France, the UK and US are continuing military operations at the behest of Israel, which is hysterical about encroaching Iranian influence across the Middle East, and what that entails for Israeli regional hegemony.

But it’s a losing game. All four countries – along with their regional allies – are losing their historical positions in the Middle East, and are desperately trying to do something to stop that new reality from manifesting. At the same time, they are apparently not so desperate that they will risk a ‘hot war’ with Russia.

In the process of ‘projecting their strength’, they have exposed how weak they have become militarily, and their avalanche of lies in the media about how ‘successful’ the event was for them indicates that they are facing an existential war, not with Russia and China, but with reality itself. Who do you think is going to win in the end?

Throughout the 20th century, the US ability to project power and dominate global geopolitics was, to a large extent, based on the general perception that the US was the most powerful military force in the world. In most cases, the mere threat of this military prowess was enough to ‘get things done’ the American, or Western, way. The maintenance of the widespread belief in US military preeminence is therefore extremely important to the US establishment, and any event that might expose a different reality is to be avoided at all costs. When US/Western military might is physically demonstrated, a careful propaganda campaign and media management of the outcome is necessary, up to and including outright lies about the performance of the military tech used. No surprise there. Read More →

Recently, the US Treasury Department added dozens of Russian entrepreneurs, senior officials and companies on a sanction list in response to Russia’s alleged worldwide “malign activity.” Sputnik spoke with Joe Quinn, internet essayist, researcher, author to find out more current political situation on international arena.

The anglo-American establishment hates Putin because he took the broken pieces of a Soviet Union that was supposed to be one more Western vassal state and fashioned them into a modern, sovereign Russian Federation capable of pushing back against the Western vision of a unipolar world, a Pax Americana at gunpoint.

Nikolas CruzOne more school shooting in the USA, one more round of inane squabbling, finger pointing and calls to ‘ban guns’ from one side and ‘deal with the mental health problem’ from the other. As is true for most polemic issues hotly debated by ignorant human beings, the truth probably lies somewhere in between, or somewhere else. Read More →

For those who don’t like reading (see article below), I say pretty much the same thing in my interview today with Press TV on the downing of an Israeli F-16 by (ahem…) ‘Syrian’ air defenses.

The proxy regime change war against Syria was launched 7 years ago with the clear intention of overthrowing the Assad government and turning Syria into a Western client state to act as a buffer against expanding Iranian influence and thereby secure US control of the region a little longer.

Harassment1The short video below is the latest of many dozens of interviews that Jordan Peterson has given over the last year, yet it stands out as one of the very few that were conducted by a reporter that was either hostile towards, or largely clueless about, Peterson’s agenda. In their short write-up on their website, Vice News describes Peterson’s book, 12 Rules for Life, as “a mix of pop psychology and self-help” which, for anyone familiar with the book or Peterson’s work, tells you all you need to know about Vice News.
