The techniques of modern military propaganda by Thierry Meyssan

Propaganda is as old as human society. However, it developed considerably during the age of mass society, and now follows strict rules.

America’s Biggest of All Big Lies (II)

  The use of ‘Crimea’ as an excuse for this restoration of the «Cold War» (which is already a hot war in Ukraine, Syria, and other lands, where the US sees fit to replace leaders that ally with Russia), is just as bogus as is the use of ‘Iranian nuclear weapons’ as an excuse for installing SDI. […]

The recolonisation of Libya by Manlio Dinucci

To those who believe that the colonial era is over, the examples of Iraq, Libya and Syria exist to prove them wrong. In 2001, the United States decided – in the logic of the ’War on Terror’ – to attack these three countries and a few others. Certainly, the wars against Tripoli and Damascus did […]

Jean-Claude Juncker Damns Obama’s Plan for Ukraine

Jean-Claude Juncker, the most powerful person in Europe, the chief of the European Commission and therefore Europe’s closest equivalent to America’s President, said, in a little-noticed comment on March 3rd, «Ukraine will definitely not be able to become a member of the EU in the next 20-25 years, and not of NATO either».

Syria: Russia’s Military Might Surprises West

Western media has raised hue and cry blaming Russia for great collateral damage in Syria.

Beware of Bears and Dragons in Their Own Backyards

At the UN General Assembly in September last year President Obama declared without a trace of irony that «History is littered with the failure of false prophets and fallen empires, who believed that might always makes right, and that will continue to be the case.

The Syrian Kurds: Threatened by Turkey, America’s Untrustworthy Ally

Syria’s Kurds, who have been successful in occupying large tracts of territory originally seized by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), are now facing concerted military pressure from Turkey, which is backed by military forces from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

How Turkey supports the jihadists by Thierry Meyssan

Russia questioned the future of Turkey when it delivered to the Security Council an intelligence report concerning Turkey’s activities in support of jihadists. The document includes about ten revelations which implicate the activities of the MIT. The problem is that each of the operations listed refers back to operations in which the same actors worked […]

Russian intelligence report on Turkey’s current assistance to Daesh

Recruitment of foreign terrorist fighters, facilitation of their cross-border movement into Syria and the supply of weapons to the terrorist groups active there.

Syria: Has Anyone Stepped Back from the Brink? by Michael Jabara Carley

The Syrian crisis is a good example of duplicity and politician hypocrisy. While the Security Council unanimously adopted two resolutions, the first against the financing of Al Qaeda and Daesh and the second for peace in Syria, the war continues, fueled by… members of the Security Council. Is it an inability to be obeyed by […]
