‘Russiagate’ may be over in the US, but in the UK it’s just beginning

Published 2019-11-09 18:30:54 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, United-Kingdom

‘It’s only a matter of time’ it occurred to me as I cast a glance over Dominic Cummings’ profile on Wikipedia a couple of months’ back. The mere mention that Cummings, Boris Johnson’s trusted advisor had spent several years in Russia, spoke Russian and enjoyed a bit of Dostoevsky was surely more than enough ammunition for the UK opposition, given the way ‘Russia’ has become almost a dirty word in itself over the last few years in the British and US political discourse. There was a half-hearted attempt to link Boris Johnson to Russian money in the Tory leadership race,… Continue ->

Trump Miscalculates the Importance of ASEAN

Published 2019-11-09 17:30:11 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Thailand, United-States

The 2019 Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit held in Thailand earlier this week has given a signal of how the regional order is beginning to change. The ASEAN platform serves as a biannual conference between 10 Southeast countries, with Papua New Guinea and East Timor having observer status. ASEAN focusses on issues of the economy, politics and security. China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand and the United States all have a kind of status as partners of ASEAN, but are not formally members. ASEAN has proven to be a powerful platform that represents collectively over 650 million… Continue ->

Freeing Lula strengthens confrontation against neoliberalism in Latin America

Published 2019-11-09 16:30:52 by Paul Antonopoulos in Brazil, Headline-News, Latin-America

BRASILIA – Federal Deputy Alexandre Padilha (PT [Workers Party]-Sao Paolo) said that the freedom of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva represents “a strengthening of the confrontation of the neoliberal agenda throughout Latin America.” The former minister of health also assesses that the release of the PT leader will mark a “profound change and a major turnaround in the Brazilian political conjuncture”. The former president left the Federal Police Superintendence in Curitiba in the late afternoon on Friday, where he had been arrested since April 7, 2018. Speaking outside the venue, he said he would “circulate around Brazil. The… Continue ->

MAJOR: Pentagon recognizes Russia’s superiority in hypersonic weapons

Published 2019-11-09 15:30:09 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, United-States

MOSCOW – Due to the development of Russian hypersonic weapon technologies, an imbalance in combat capabilities that the US must overcome has emerged, says the Pentagon’s official representative. “While the United States has been the world leader in hypersonic system research for many decades, we did not choose to weaponize hypersonic technology,” Pentagon spokesperson Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Robert Carver recently told Newsweek in a statement. “Those who sought to be our adversaries have decided to weaponize it, which has created a warfighting asymmetry that we must address.” “The Department of Defense leads in hypersonic research, and fielding hypersonic weapons… Continue ->

Nuclear Fortress: Russia Begins Base Modernization of Pacific Submarines

Published 2019-11-09 14:30:48 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia

MOSCOW – Russian strategic port located at the eastern end of the country on the Kamchatka peninsula and home to the most valuable Russian strategic submarines will have its facilities renewed. Vilyuchinsk is a small town in the Kamchatka region of the Russian Far East and is located 20 km from the capital of the region, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The location of both cities was strategically chosen because they are in a bay that can protect ships from the raging winds of the Pacific Ocean. From a military standpoint, Vilyuchinsk has the advantage of providing direct access to the deep waters of… Continue ->

Published 2019-11-09 12:00:14 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Mena, Nato, Politics, Russia, Syria, United-States

MOSCOW/DAMASCUS – Russia and Syria urge the international community to compel the United States to completely withdraw its troops from the Syrian territory, the joint coordination committees said on Thursday in a statement on the humanitarian situation in the Rukban refugee camp. According to the statement, the US is still occupying a 34-mile area around the Al-Tanf military base and opposes the disbandment of Rukban, RIA Novosti reported. The statement cites that the United States’ reluctance to guarantee safety in that territory as the main reason for the suspension of the United Nations’ plan for evacuating the camp’s residents. “It… Continue ->

Analysis: Europe Shuns US, Looks to China as Global Partner

Published 2019-11-09 11:00:04 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, China, Eu, Eurasia, Finance, France-Eurasia, Headline-News, Politics, Russia, United-States

PARIS/BEIJING – French President Emmanuel Macron’s visit this week to China where he praised Beijing and criticized the unilateral policies of US President Donald Trump suggests that the United States risks being sidelined on the global stage under Trump, according to an analysis by the Associated Press. “Macron portrayed himself as an envoy for the whole European Union, conveying the message that the bloc has largely given up on Trump, who doesn’t hide his disdain for multilateralism,” AP said in its report on Thursday. When Macron wants to convey European concerns to the world stage to find solutions for climate change,… Continue ->

UN Votes Overwhelmingly Condemn US Embargo on Cuba

Published 2019-11-09 10:00:13 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Cuba, Finance, Headline-News, Latin-America, Politics, United-States

New York, United States – The United Nations General Assembly voted to condemn the US economic embargo against Cuba, calling it punitive and outmoded. The General Assembly passed the resolution on Thursday by a vote of 187 to three, marking the 28th consecutive year that the world body frowns on the embargo, PressTV reported. The United States and Cuba severed relations in 1961 during the Cold War. Cuba has been under a US economic blockade for over 60 years. In 2015, the US, under former President Barack Obama, restored diplomatic relations with Cuba. However, his successor, Donald Trump, began to… Continue ->

MAJOR: Russia Developing Missiles as Reciprocal Measure to US Actions

Published 2019-11-09 09:00:55 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Nato, Russia, United-States

MOSCOW – Russia’s decision to develop weapons previously banned by a now-defunct deal was only a reciprocal measure amid steps taken by Washington, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a conference on non-proliferation in Moscow. The foreign minister stressed that NATO is making it clear that it will not agree to a moratorium on short- and intermediate-range missile deployment in Europe, Sputnik reported. The INF Treaty, signed by the US and the Soviet Union in 1987, was terminated in August at Washington’s initiative after the country formally suspended its INF obligations six months earlier. Both countries had repeatedly accused… Continue ->

Published 2019-11-09 08:00:11 by Drago Bosnic in Eu, Eurasia, France-Eurasia, Headline-News, Nato, Politics, Russia

MOSCOW/PARIS – French President Emmanuel Macron’s statement about NATO’s “brain death” reflects the truth, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Facebook on Thursday. “How very true. The statement does reflect the truth. It is a clear definition of NATO’s current situation,” Zakharova stated, TASS reported. Macron said earlier in an interview with The Economist magazine that “what we are currently experiencing is the brain death of NATO”. According to the French president, Europe stands on “the edge of a precipice” and needs to start thinking of itself strategically as a geopolitical power, otherwise, we will “no longer be… Continue ->

How to Crush a Bankers’ Dictatorship

Published 2019-11-09 02:45:50 by Matthew Ehret in Anglo-5, Finance, Headline-News, United-Kingdom, United-States

The western media has been hit with warnings of “financial Armageddon” and the need for a “global hegemonic synthetic currency” to replace the collapsing US dollar under a new system of green finance. These statements have been made by former and current Bank of England Governors Mark Carney and Mervyn King respectively and should not be ignored as the world sits atop the largest financial bubble in human history reminiscent of the 1929 bubble that was triggered on black Friday in the USA which unleashed a great depression across Europe and America. While I’m not arguing that a systemic change is not… Continue ->
