Assad's Moral Victory: How Palmyra Battle Exposed Washington's Hypocrisy

Those who repeated the "Assad must go" mantra and swore to eradicate Daesh, failed to expel the Islamist organization from Iraq and Syria in the course of a year-long operation. It is "evil" Assad who has dealt a lethal blow to the Islamic State and liberated Palmyra, Martin Berger writes.

The liberation of the historic site of Palmyra, an invaluable 'pearl of world civilizations' is the biggest victory in the fight of the Syrian government against Daesh, freelance journalist and geopolitical analyst Martin Berger writes in his recent article for New Eastern Outlook.

Berger emphasizes that the recapture of Palmyra by the Syrian Arab Army paves the way for an advance on Raqqa, the de facto capital of Daesh.

Yet another version of Mozgovoi’s murder.

by Colonel Cassad (Boris Pozhin)


Translated by Seva

Journalist Roman Skomorokhov proposed yet another version of the murder of Alexey Mozgovoi.

It sometimes happens that the story is over, and it makes no sense to return to it. One cannot revive the dead, whereas issues of honor and memory in some places do not matter, to put it mildly. But as far as this story goes, I could not be satisfied. Frankly, there were too many strange and unexplained things in it.

The Daesh Chronicles: The Definition Challenge

by Ghassan Kadi

Islam, real Islam, is a religion of piety, wisdom and peace, and Muslims, real Muslims are not terrorists. Even though all terrorists that have been caught involved in terrorism are “Muslims”, this does not give a blanket description of all Muslims as beings terrorists.

Those who “use” terrorism to spew hatred towards Islam and indiscriminately against all Muslims have their own agenda. These are the true Islamophobes. These people do not need a reason to hate Islam and Muslims. They are now having a field day with the terror issue and using it to feed their hatred and to justify it.

Saying Wike Defeated Amaechi Is Laughable

PDP has it's strongest structure in the whole of the south, in Rivers state. Rivers people have never voted for any party aside the umbrella party. From Governors all the way down to councillors, it has always being PDP all the way, even as far back as 1998.

PDP is rivers and rivers is PDP. A TA orji PDP candidacy in a Rivers would Garner more votes than a Fashola candidacy, from another party. Even if you present a fowl as a PDP candidate in Rivers state, he would still win any election.

Adding to this is the sense of betrayal and hate the people feels for APC is particular for snatching the presidency from their Son, GEJ.

Why Islamic State carried out Paris and Brussels attacks?

by Nauman Sadiq
As we know that France under Nicolas Sarkozy had played a lead role in fomenting the insurgency against the Gaddafi regime in Libya in 2011 and after him Francois Hollande too had been on the forefront of supporting the Sunni militants in Syria against the Alawite-Shi’a Assad regime. That arrangement of an informal pact between the Western powers and the Sunni jihadists of the Middle East against the Shi’a-Iranian axis had worked well up to August 2014, when Obama Administration made an about-face on its previous regime change policy in Syria and started conducting air strikes against one group of Sunni jihadists battling against the “hostile” Assad regime, i.e. the Islamic State, after the latter transgressed its mandate in Syria and overran Mosul and Anbar in Iraq and threatened the capital of another steadfast American ally: Masoud Barzani’s Erbil in the oil-rich Iraqi Kurdistan.

Brazil, like Russia, under attack by Hybrid War

by Pepe Escobar for RT
Color revolutions would never be enough; Exceptionalistan is always on the lookout for major strategic upgrades capable of ensuring perpetual Empire of Chaos hegemony.
The ideological matrix and the modus operandi of color revolutions by now are a matter of public domain. Not so much the concept of Unconventional War (UW).
UW was spelled out by the 2010 Special Forces Unconventional Warfare manual. Here’s the money quote:

Political Correctness working against cultural opennessin Brazil? Brazilian officials block couple from giving their daughter Yoruba name

Cizinho Afreeka and Jéssica desired to name their daughter “Makeda Foluke.” This is because they have roots with the Yoruba culture, but when they went to register their newborn daughter’s name, they were turned down.

Economic Blackmail By Foreigners And Their Protegees

So unless Nigeria opens up its limited foreign reserves to everyone that desires as much foreign goods and services as he wants, the Country is going to blazes. But if the Country exhausts all its foreign reserves, it will be saved from economic ruins? If we are to believe these foreign trained economists, their magazines, newspapers or prostitutes, Nigeria has no choice but to devalue its currency so that it can pay more in local currency for their odious loans, goods and services.

Once Nigeria pays more in devalued naira, goods, services, transportation fare and service loan fees will increase accordingly. Housing and car purchases increase will follow and workers will demand more to meet daily expenses. It is illogical to think that paying more in devalued naira will automatically solve the problem of a market without abundant local products to export.

Century of War

by Auslander
Saker, what you wrote is not a rant, I would liken it more to an almost primal scream of frustration and rage brought on by what you and I both understand is happening and has already happened with irreversible consequences.
I am Auslander. Most of you know what that word means and I use that pen name because that is what I am when I go ‘home’ to USA where I was born which, by the way, has as much chance of happening again as the Dark Lord driving a Kenworth with a Myers snow blade on it in his kingdom. I also use that name because when I go ‘home’ to my ethnic roots I no longer feel what I am, 100% ethnic German.

Syrian-Turkish Border Security: Check Point Taurus

by Ghassan Kadi

This article herein is intended to shed more light on the subject and emphasize an issue that is paramount for long-term Syrian security.
