The United States once again warned this week it would "take firm and appropriate measures" against the Syrian government forces should they continue pushing into the southwest of the country, which has long been held by Al-Qaeda, ISIS, and other groups fighting the Assad government. The state department issued a statement Thursday saying that any Syrian government action risks igniting a broader conflict, but didn't specify what actions the US or its allies might take.
The defence ministers of all NATO member states met in Brussels on June 7 and decided to take all necessary steps over the next two years to be able mobilise a total of 90 military, naval and air force combat units at short notice and at any time.
Norway has a thing where they have a long-held tradition of not having foreign militaries permanently stationed on their soil. But that isn't going to get in the way of the current government having a foreign military permanently stationed on their soil.
The Trump administration and the U.S. Department of the Treasury last week slapped sanctions on several Russian companies and billionaires for allegedly supporting Russia’s military and intelligence agencies in fueling more cyber attacks and other malicious activities.
In the latest signal that the upcoming OPEC+ meeting in Vienna could end in disaster, Iran’s OPEC representative said the country will veto any proposal for a production increase with the support of Venezuela and Iraq.
Last year after the German elections I penned a piece saying, “The End of The Merkel is Nigh.” Merkel’s early failures at putting a coalition together drove that conclusion. Back then I pegged CSU leader and former Governor of Bavaria, Horst Seehofer, as the pivotal figure in potentially seeing Germans go back to the polls if he stood up to Merkel.
Senior Research Officer, the 3rd Central Research Institute of the Russian Defence Ministry, A.P. Anisimov reported on the critical deficiencies of the modern Russian Uran-9 large, Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV). The Uran-9 UGV is a Russian modern combat unmanned vehicle (also called the Russian tank in miniature) designed to provide remote reconnaissance and fire support to a variety of tasks conducted by the counter-terrorism, reconnaissance and military units in urban environments.
In 2016, the United States backed India’s application to join the Nuclear Suppliers Group — but didn’t support Pakistan’s. This marked an extraordinary turning point in the United States’ relationship with these historical adversaries. In 1971, the United States sent part of its Seventh Fleet to threaten war with India on Pakistan’s behalf. The reasoning behind the deployment is stranger still — it was supposedly to befriend China.
In the recent past, I've posted articles on the Atlantic Council that you can find here and here. This self-proclaimed non-partisan group was recently hired by Facebook to ensure that there is not a repetition of the United States 2016 presidential election which saw the Deep State's candidate of choice lose to America's populist movement.
For most of my life I did not understand the expression “the Jewish question.” Nobody ever talked about “the Catholic question” or “the Presbyterian question” or “the Mormon question” or “the Buddhist question” or “the Muslim question.” Yet there have been extensive debates, beginning in the 19th century, of “the Jewish question.”

Interview given to Greek geopolitical portal Geopolitics & Daily News Q1. Dr. Dugin, in recent years we have witnessed a rising tension between USA, EU and Russia relations. Some say that this reminds of «cold war era». Do you share the same opinion or is there something more to it?
Every time the mainstream media touts some “wonderful new economic numbers” I just want to cringe. Yes, it is true that the economic numbers have gotten slightly better since Donald Trump entered the White House, but the rosy economic picture that the mainstream media is constantly painting for all of us is completely absurd.
Eliot Higgins, praised by Western media as a bulwark against sinister Russian disinformation, has a persuasive, Atlantic Council-fellow retort for those who take issue with his Google Earth investigations: “Suck my balls.” Higgins gave up his lucrative career as a payments officer at a women’s underwear company to create Bellingcat, a celebrated internet blog that specializes in using open-source information to blame Russia for every crime against humanity – real or imagined – committed so far this century.
Looking at the unfolding trade war between Donald Trump and the world the phrase that should come to mind is “One good turn deserves another.” In the case of the insane sanctions on Oleg Deripaska and Russian Aluminum giant, Rusal, back in April, we finally got some clarity as to how Russia can and will respond to future events. In yesterday’s Treasury International Capital (TIC) report, we saw clearly that Russia activated its nearly $100 billion in U.S. Treasury debt to buy dollars in April.
