Rex Tillerson and the Myths, Lies and Oil Wars to Come
29.01.17 19:52 Economics
Rex Tillerson, former CEO of the ExxonMobil oil colossus is not designated Secretary of State because of his diplomatic experience. He is there because clearly the Trump Project of those Patriarchs behind Trump–ones such as Warren Buffett, David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger and others–want a person from Big Oil guiding American foreign policy the coming four years. Already as President, Trump has given the green light to the controversial KeystoneXL pipelines that will not ship US oil, but costly Canada Tar Sands sludge. His EPA plans a friendly stance to the environmental hazards of shale oil production. But most essential, with Secretary Tillerson, the US plans a major reorganization of control over oil, reminding of the oft-cited Kissinger statement, “If you control the oil you control entire nations or groups of nations.”

Incipient Hybrid War in South Central Africa and Mozambique
29.01.17 09:13 Africa
The Hybrid War research has now moved from the Horn of Africa and East Africa down to a belt of states that the author has taken to calling South-Central Africa, which includes Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia, and Angola (and will be covered in that order). This part of Africa is important because it connects the Central-East African space to the much more developed and economically mature South African one, with the Republic of South Africa (RSA) naturally being the center of gravity in this larger region.

Can Iran and India Turn the Page?
16.01.17 15:13 Iran
Iran and India have long had historical, cultural, and commercial ties. Tracing back a millennium, both countries have framed their shared roots as a “civilizational relationship.” Over the past decade, their economic ties, because of nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran by the international community, have centered on limited energy and agricultural products. In 2015, this trade amounted to about $16 billion. This number seems small when compared to $52 billion, the amount of bilateral trade Iran conducts with China. And yet for Iran, India is not only geographically closer than China—it also shares a similar geopolitical outlook for West Asia.

Capitalism Requires World War
03.03.16 10:13 Economics
The present showdown between West, Russia and China is the culmination of a long running saga that began with World War One. Prior to which, Capitalism was governed by the gold standard system which was international, very solid, with clear rules and had brought great prosperity: for banking Capital was scarce and so allocated carefully. World War One required debt-capitalism of the FIAT kind, a bankrupt Britain began to pass the Imperial baton to the US, which had profited by financing the war and selling munitions.

Back to the 1930s – Hitler, Daesh and the West
28.12.15 18:35 Iraq War, "War on terror"
Whilst Daesh [Islamic State] is constantly being compared to the Nazis, the real parallel – the West’s willingness to build up fascism in order to cripple Russia – is often forgotten.

Syria: War of All Against All Continues…
27.11.15 10:46 Middle East
I wrote this text some time ago in order to capture the conflict’s Big Picture and, especially, the coincidence and clash of interests of all the major participants. The whole slew of recent events, including the downing of the Russian airliner over the Sinai, the Paris terror attacks, and the shoot-down of the Russian Su-24 bomber over Syria by Turkish fighters, have made these relationships stand out in starker relief, but they also served to realign them. Therefore it is time to revisit this text and provide a few updates.

Did Russia’s Intervention Derail Turkey’s Plan to Invade Syria?
15.10.15 19:38 Middle East
Thousands of Iranian soldiers have arrived in Syria to join a major offensive against Sunni militants located in the northwest section of the country. The Iranian ground forces will be part of a joint operation that will include the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Russia and fighters from Lebanese militia, Hezbollah. The assault comes on the heels of a withering two week aerial bombardment of enemy positions by the Russian Air Force which has wreaked havoc on US-backed jihadis along the western corridor. The mobilization of Iranian troops indicates that the 4 year-long conflict is entering its final phase where the Russian-led coalition will attempt to crush the predominantly-Sunni militias and restore security across the country

The CIA and the Media: 50 Facts the World Needs to Know
01.09.15 20:25 Global Security
Since the end of World War Two the Central Intelligence Agency has been a major force in US and foreign news media, exerting considerable influence over what the public sees, hears and reads on a regular basis. CIA publicists and journalists alike will assert they have few, if any, relationships, yet the seldom acknowledged history of their intimate collaboration indicates a far different story–indeed, one that media historians are reluctant to examine

The Greater Middle East in the face of earnest geopolitical changes
08.08.15 21:27 Middle East
The current developments in the Greater Middle East provoke many experts and analysts to reflect their genuine nature, since this the most important subregion reaches a point of bifurcation after which it would hardly be affordable to turn the flow back.

Trump’s Triumph: Billionaire Blowhard Exposes Fake Political System
08.08.15 17:59 Global Security
Last night’s FOX News GOP Presidential Debate Extravaganza featured the most riveting two minute political exchange ever heard on national television. During a brief colloquy between Republican frontrunner Donald Trump and Fox moderator Brett Baier, the pugnacious casino magnate revealed the appalling truth about the American political system, that the big money guys like Trump own the whole crooked contraption lock, stock, and barrel, and that, the nation’s fake political leaders do whatever they’re told to do. Without question, it was most illuminating commentary to ever cross the airwaves. Here’s the entire exchange direct from the transcript

Light at the end of the Afghan tunnel
04.08.15 16:48 Global Security
The Chinese state news agency Xinhua signaled in a major commentary on Monday that Beijing views the new Taliban leadership of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor in a positive light. The salience of the commentary, entitled “New Afghan Taliban chief keeps hope alive for Pakistan-brokered Talks”, lies in three intertwined estimations.

Greece and the Crisis of International Capital
11.07.15 09:48 Economics
In terms both gratuitous and sadly predictable, last week’s ‘no’ vote in Greece was followed by insistence from the Troika, led by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, that the Greek government accept economic ‘reforms’ likely to be even more onerous than those that preceded the vote or face a quick exit from the European Monetary Union (Grexit). With long precedence of capitulation to Troika demands by center-left Social Democrat governments across Europe, now apparently joining this macabre dance is Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipris who, only days after winning consent from the Greek people to take on the Troika, is said to be offering more austerity in exchange for ‘face-saving’ cuts in unpayable levels of deb
