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

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.

Ukraine and the Apocalyptic Risk of Propagandized Ignorance
17.06.15 13:07 Global Security
I’m not sure if there’s been a better written book published yet this year than Ukraine: Zbig’s Grand Chessboard and How the West Was Checkmated, but I’m confident there’s not been a more important one. With some 17,000 nuclear bombs in the world, the United States and Russia have about 16,000 of them. The United States is aggressively flirting with World War III, the people of the United States have not the foggiest notion of how or why, and authors Natylie Baldwin and Kermit Heartsong explain it all quite clearly. Go ahead and tell me there’s nothing you’re now spending your time on that’s less important than this

Is Washington Planning “Operation Barbarossa 2.0″? War against Russia?
07.06.15 19:20 Global Security
On June 22, 1941, Hitler launched Operation Barbarossa against the Soviet Union – perhaps the largest ever invasion force by one country against another involving up to four million combat and support troops.

The South China Sea Word War
04.06.15 12:44 Global Security
As Cold War 2.0 between the U.S. and Russia remains far from being defused, the last thing the world needs is a reincarnation of Bushist hawk Donald “known unknowns” Rumsfeld

ISIL, Kiev’s Nazis, And The Rage Against History
01.06.15 09:24 Global Security
The US’ regional proxies in the Mideast and Ukraine are on a rampage against history, doing whatever they can to bury their associated countries’ past so that they can more easily build their version of a ‘utopian’ future. This trend of ‘historical warfare’ is endemic of the militarization of historical memory that the US is rolling out all throughout Eurasia. With ISIL grabbing global headlines over its seizure of Palmyra and the urgent threat this poses to the UNESCO world heritage site there, it’s worthy to revisit how the terrorist group’s anti-historical crusade actually doesn’t differ at all from what the Kievan Nazis are doing in Ukraine, and how all of this destruction connects together with the new type of asymmetrical warfare that the US is practicing across Eurasia

Look Homeward, Hegemon Part 1: Cold War 2.0 Abroad, Cold Civil War Between the U.S. Government and Its People At Home
19.05.15 13:02 Global Security
Introduction: We want to start by thanking The Saker for giving us the opportunity to publish a series of articles for this community that looks at the late, great American Empire from a slightly different perspective. While most Vineyard readers come to this website looking for analysis of the war in Ukraine or conflicts in the Middle East, we felt it would be useful to take a look at dysfunctional or ‘Empire of Chaos’ spreading American foreign policy as a reflection of the accelerating socio-economic collapse one sees in the American ‘homeland’

China Lashes Out At US: "Refrain From Provocative Action" In South China Sea
13.05.15 19:14 Global Security
Yesterday, in a stunning admission that already frigid relations between China and the US (because according to the lying White House it is Russia that is "isolated", even as Putin was sitting next to Chinas president on May 9) are getting worse, if not outright hostile, by the day we learned that US Defense Secretary Ash Carter has asked his staff to look at military options to rebuke Chinese ambitions in the South China Sea area around the Spratly Islands, which has recently become a topic of contention between China and most of its neighbors, especially the Philippines and Vietnam

War Threat Rises As Economy Declines
12.05.15 12:48 Global Security
The defining events of our time are the collapse of the Soviet Union, 9/11, jobs offshoring, and financial deregulation. In these events we find the basis of our foreign policy problems and our economic problems

Following the Money: The New Anti-Semitism?
05.05.15 17:16 Global Security
In the 1976 docudrama about the Watergate affair and the fall of Richard Nixon, All the President’s Men, Bob Woodward’s source at the FBI, Deep Throat, tells him to “follow the money.” To the Post editorial board in 2015, doing just that is problematic—and probably anti-Semitic

Why NATO is Terrified of Russia

The twin-pronged attack - oil price war/raid on the ruble – aimed at destroying the Russian economy and place it into a form of Western natural resource vassalage has failed

Did a Chinese-Russian-Iranian coalition opposing NATO debut in Moscow?
26.04.15 18:01 Global Security
Talk about joint efforts between China, India, Russia and Iran against NATO expansion was augmented with plans for tripartite military talks between Beijing, Moscow, and Tehran.

Is the U.S. a Force for Good in the World?
25.04.15 14:40 Global Security
First of all, in terms of popularity worldwide, the U.S. is a mixed picture. A Gallup International poll of 65 countries, issued on 30 December 2013, found that:
