The media is foaming at the mouth at the prospect of a war between North Korea and the USA.
Is a nuclear war likely between North Korea and the USA? Are Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un likely to go to war?
We say no.
It’s all theatre. Or at least, it’s all theatre now North Korea’s powerful neighbour China have clarified their position thus:
China’s state-run Global Times said: “If the US and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so.”
I have just returned from my annual sojourn to America recently; Texas and California to be exact.
This might have been the first time I had ever been to Texas and not see someone wearing a cowboy hat. Amazing, since I spent 10 days there (14 days in Cali). Equally amazing was not seeing any police, or very, very few in both places.
For fair disclosure, before you read this review, I will say that while I enjoy visiting America from time to time, I am disdainful of American foreign policy and its continual aggression, state-sponsored terrorism, wars and regime changes around the world.
I am a Russophile. I think Vladimir Putin is one of the worlds great leaders.
An American pal of mine gifted me this book recently. I promised him I would read it with an open mind. I think I have, but it hasn’t changed my opinion.
Here is some of the book blurb:
Exceptional – Why the World Needs a Powerful America by Dick Cheney
Former vice president Dick Cheney, a #1 New York Times bestselling author, and his daughter Liz Cheney, former deputy assistant secretary of state, explain the unique and indispensable nature of American power, reveal the damage done by President Obama’s abandonment of this principle, and show how America can and must lead again.
Russian aircraft carried out a bombing attack against Syrian opposition fighters on Wednesday, including at least one group trained by the C.I.A., eliciting angry protests from American officials and plunging the complex sectarian war there into dangerous new territory.
The United States is delivering arms to Ukraine via Bulgaria, an article on RIA Novosti reads.
Bulgaria is also “producing ammunition for the Ukrainian army” with US money, and Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic are ready to take part in similar schemes, the text argues further.
Washington is doing so “despite official declarations” and has so far transferred about 200 sniper rifles and 400 assault rifles and 200 grenade launchers, the author, Aleksandr Hrolenko, notes [RU], arguing this “transit country” has been used for not less than 20 years “when necessary to hide traces”.… Click here to continue reading this article
In the West, discussion continues on the upcoming speech by Russian President Vladimir Putin at the UN General Assembly.
According to the magazine Politico columnist Paul R. Gregory, not much can go wrong, if we assume that the main emphasis of the Russian leader is to make a speech on the wording of the terms on which Russia is ready to participate in a broad international coalition to combat Islamic state (a terrorist group banned in Russia).
The author analyses the recent statements by Vladimir Putin and comes to the conclusion that the Russian president will lay out the four key conditions for cooperation between Moscow and the West to resolve the Syrian crisis.… Click here to continue reading this article
You are right to think that the US is in for a bumpy ride, it is, and for the reasons I and others have been going on about for more than a decade.
The core issue that connects all the significant actors, in different ways, is energy – its supply and its cost.
Right now US tight hydrocarbon firms are pumping for all their worth in order to generate cash flow to enable them to pay their loans. They are stuck. They simply can not reduce output by one iota, they have no choice but to pump and pump no matter how much money they lose.… Click here to continue reading this article
Since its divestment from the Soviet Union, Ukraine has been something of a schizophrenic nation with conflicting allegiances in the West and East of the country. In recent years, a neocon agenda has stoked up this internal strife to incendiary levels.
The people in the East speak Russian and incline towards Russia, while those in western Ukraine march to a different drum: they speak Ukrainian and foster fond hopes of becoming real Europeans. In Crimea, the majority converse in Russian and their hearts have always beaten patriotically for the motherland. Crimea, after all, was part of Russia from 1784 until 1954, at which juncture Nikita Khrushchev, a native of Ukraine incidentally, made what some consider a major blunder: the Soviet leader gift-wrapped the peninsula and handed it over to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.
It seems a while ago now that President Yanukovych of Ukraine was ousted in an illegal US and EU led coup d’etat and the softly-spoken Poroshenko installed in his place as American puppet.
Readers can be forgiven for not understanding that what happened in Ukraine as a coup d’etat, as it is hard to get to the facts sometimes above the constant – yet incorrect – western media propaganda drone of Russian Aggression we hear daily.
The United States and the ever-pliant EU have been earnestly telling us that Mr Yanukovych’s removal was alright really as he was a not nice bloke who was more concerned in filling his pockets than helping Ukraine prosper.… Click here to continue reading this article
We hear daily burbling in the western media about ‘Russian Aggression’.
Western hacks make themselves busy each day diligently reworking US State Department propaganda about threats to the Baltic states.
As with many things, many people take these things at face value, without actually trying to ascertain if a threat actually exists or was ever made.
Many in the west misunderstand the Ukrainian situation, and use what the western media regurgitates, to extrapolate from it that Russia is some aggressive, acquisitive behemoth that must be stopped before they gobble up the Baltic states.… Click here to continue reading this article
The White House is determined to block the rise of the key nuclear-armed nations, Russia and China, neither of whom will join the “world’s acceptance of Washington’s hegemony,” says head of the Institute for Political Economy, Paul Craig Roberts.
The former US assistant secretary of the Treasury for economic policy, Dr Paul Craig Roberts, has written on his blog that Beijing is currently “confronted with the Pivot to Asia and the construction of new US naval and air bases to ensure Washington’s control of the South China Sea, now defined as an area of American National Interests.”… Click here to continue reading this article
The United States is the greatest threat to world peace. This is because it is lashing out because its economy is collapsing.
Lets think about this.
America is slowly collapsing. Their economy is a ponzi scheme, propped up by world use of the dollar. However, Russia, Iran, China and some other BRICS countries are leading a long overdue de-dollarisation of the world.
A strong economy needs to manufacture stuff and export.
In Europe, what do we actually buy that is made in America?
Is what is going on in Iraq and Syria more evidence of the worlds most prolific terrorist state in action once more?
Yes, that’s right. America, the worlds most prolific terrorist state and orchestrator of regime changes across the world is at it again. Ukraine wasn’t enough. Now they are back in the middle east and meddling on China’s borders.
I read an article today I thought so excellent I wanted to republish it here.
Written by a gentleman by the name of Timothy V. Gatto on a website called MWC News – Media with Conscience.
I hope MWC agree to us republishing it here with a citation and a backlink to source.
We very seldom publish the work of other people here unless we think it particularly incisive and noteworthy.
Another Successful American Propaganda Effort
American political figures like to talk about “American Democracy”. The truth is there is no “American Democracy”; it is something that our rulers like to foist upon the World stage much like parents like to tell their children about Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny.… Click here to continue reading this article
What is the real story with Ukraine, Russia, the EU and America?
Anyone who reads Western media might feel that they have a handle on what is going on in Ukraine.
You have been misled by the Western media to hold one, and only one view: There is ‘terrorism’ perpetrated by ‘pro-Russian separatists’, armed by Russia, and Vladimir Putin is the main culprit. Especially with flight MH17.
End of story. Anyone who believes differently is a Russian propaganda merchant.
If you are a UK online seller and want to sell into the USA, this article is for you. Selling into the US from the UK is full of pitfalls.
We all love selling online, don’t we? Especially in the UK.
America and Canada are potentially important markets to look at, as there are over 330 million people there. So we want to sell online to Americans, right? (And for simplistic purposes, we include Canada in the term ‘America’ and ‘Americans’ from here on in.)

Статья Путина в 11 сентября Нью-Йорк Таймс имеет застряли свиней визжа. Визг застрял свиньи просто кто вы думали, что они бы-всех тех, чьи повестки дня и прибыль будет способствовали нападению на Сирию со стороны режима Обама Штази.

В ряде моих статей я объяснил, что Советский Союз служил ограничения на власти США. Распад Советского Союза развязал неоконсервативную диск для США мировую гегемонию. Россия при Путине, Китая и Ирана являются единственными ограничения на неоконсервативной повестки дня.
Ядерные ракеты России и военная техника сделать Россию самой сильной военной препятствием для американской гегемонии. Для нейтрализации России, Вашингтон нарушил соглашения Рейган-Горбачев и расширили НАТО в бывшие составные части советской империи, а теперь намерен довести бывших составных частей России сама-Грузия и Украина-в НАТО.Вашингтон отказался от договора, который запретил анти-баллистические ракеты и установил противоракетной обороны базы на границе России. … Click here to continue reading this article
