French intellectual, founder and chairman of Voltaire Network and the Axis for Peace Conference.

Washington and Moscow have managed to maintain their agreements on Syria after John Kerry assured his Russian oppposite number that the weapons sent by the Pentagon to Al-Qaïda and Daesh in April had been delivered to honour an old programme which is now abandoned. We are moving towards the end of the Geneva negotiations, and the resumption of intra-Syrian discussions – they will include the Kurds, but not the the pro-Saudi faction.
Every time the Syrian Arab Army beats the jihadists, new combatants arrive in Syria in their thousands. We are therefore forced to admit that this war is being cultivated from the exterior, and that it will last as long as soldiers are sent to die. So we must understand the exterior reasons which continue to maintain it. Then, and only then, can we elaborate a strategy which will spare lives.
These days, US foreign policy is often contradictory, as we can see in Syria, where troops trained by the Pentagon are fighting troops trained by the CIA. And yet it remains perfectly coherent on two points – to divide Europe between the European Union on one side and Russia on the other – and to divide the Far East between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations on one side and China on the other. Why? And can this be predicted?
While the media treat the US primaries as if they were a competition between Trump and Cruz on one side, and Clinton and Sanders on the other, a whole machinery is now being set in motion to block the real estate promoter, who is threatening the interests of the WASP ruling class. In this article, Thierry Meyssan exposes the stakes which, for the moment, no-one has mentioned publicly.
This article is intended for a well-informed electorate.
The migration crisis that marked the European Union during the second half of 2015 was created artificially. However, several groups have tried to use it, either to destroy national cultures, to recruit low-cost workers, or to justify the financing of the war against Syria. But in the end, once the wave has passed and the damage done, the problem remains, above all, African.
The biographies of the three main organisers of the migration crisis and the response offered by the European Union attest to their connections with the the United States administration and their existing determination to abolish frontiers. For these men, the current migrations are not a humanitarian problem, but a chance to put their theories into practice.
For the last five years, the history of Egypt, like that of many other Arab states, has been a succession of conspiracies, violence, announcements and denials. Everything that international public opinion has believed at one moment or another has been called into question by new elements. Thierry Meyssan attempts here to separate truth from fiction, while asking what the current President al-Sissi is still hiding.
Although the economic situation in Russia is much more difficult than in France, Russian TV viewers massively followed the programme « Direct Line with Vladimir Putin », while the French showed scarce interest in « Citizen Dialogues with François Hollande ». The audience levels of the two programmes correspond to the public support garnered respectively by each political figure. For Thierry Meyssan, contrary to the dogmas of communication gurus, TV viewers and the electorate are not swayed by poor economic indicators, but rather by their president’s capacity as a leader or as a simple manager.
The Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has repeatedly brought up the option of depriving a tenth of the population of their Turkish nationality. These are far from declarations issued by a court. We have here the application of the supremacist theory of Millî Görüş, an Islamic organization, of which he was one of the directors and which he claims to have left. If such an option were to be implemented, it would open a new regional war.
As they evolve. President Erdoğan’s declarations stray more and more from universal values. While in the West, people are beginning to emit feeble criticisms of the so-called "authoritarian drift" of Ankara, Thierry Meyssan continues his narration of the establishment of a dictatorship based on the supremacy of Turkish ethnicity and "Islamic values".
Contrary to what may appear to be the case, the «Panama Papers» campaign will not lead to restraining embezzlements of funds, nor to expanding liberties, but the exact opposite. The system is going to consolidate a bit more around the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, the United States and Israel, so that these and only these will control it. By violating the principle of equality before the Law and their professional ethics, the members of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists have put themselves at the service of the enemies of liberty and the defenders of Big Capital. The fact that they had pinned down in the process some crooks will not change anything. Explanations.
Thierry Meyssan analyses the political and electoral system of the United States. He believes that the only true issue of the Presidential election is the maintenance of power in the hands of the WASPs, which has never been contested since the Declaration of Independence. While Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton are the guarantors of this status, the candidacy of Donald Trump announces a profound upheaval of the system which will only occur once the Anglo-Saxons become the minority.
We don’t yet know who ordered the attacks in Paris and Brussels. Several potential leads have been mentioned, but only the hypothesis of an operation decided by Turkey has any serious backing. Thierry Meyssan describes the secret conflict which, for the last five years, has haunted the relations between the Europan Union, France and Turkey.
By signing an agreement with Turkey to slow the influx of refugees – which happens to be illegal in international law – the leaders of the European Union have taken a step further in their pact with the devil. A large part of the 3 billion Euros annually allotted to Ankara will serve to finance support for the jihadists, and as a result will increase the number of migrants who are fleeing the war. Above all, by repealing the visa regulations with Turkey in the next few months, the Europeans are establishing free circulation between the Al-Qaïda camps in Turkey and Brussels. By crushing the Iraqi and Syrian people under the pressure of the jihadists whom they are indirectly financing, and abandoning the Turkish people to the dictatorship of President Erdoğan, they are preparing the foundations for a vast confrontation of which they will themselves be the (...)
The announcement of the partial withdrawal of the Russian Army from Syria has spawned a great number of commentaries which illustrate the preconceived bias of their authors rather than reality. Thierry Meyssan points out that the facts demonstrate not only that the differences between Moscow and Damascus have been resolved, but that Russia – which managed to topple the Western powers into the anti-terrorist camp – intends to allow Syrians to liberate their territory by themselves.
Lebanon has not been respecting its own constitution since May 2008, and no longer has a budget reserve. The country today is essentially adrift, and has once again become an easy prey for Israël. The failure of the operation against Syria has forced the colonial parties to seek a new target. While a second civil war can still be avoided, it will be difficult to avoid a new invasion.
Since 2012, Moscow has been trying to rally the Western powers to its cause – to defend civilisation against jihadism, as the world was once united against Nazism. In order to do so, it first of all dissociated the White House from the combatants that the United States call « rebels », and whom Moscow regards as « jihadists ». Today, it is trying to isolate Turkey. Far from being a diplomatic epiphenomenon, the cessation of hostilities in Syria marks an about-face. Washington has just admitted that there are no « moderate » armed groups, or none left.
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 with the United States or their allies against Russia. This information adds to that which is already available concerning the personal connections between President Erdoğan and the Al-Qaïda banker, and the information about Erdoğan’s son and the illegal use of the oil stolen by Daesh.
The meeting of the International Syria Support Group seems to have marked the takeover of the Syrian situation by the White House, to the detriment of the « neo-conservatives » and the « liberal hawks ». The final declaration imposes supervision of the UNO by the US and Russia, which removes Jeffrey Feltman from his prerogatives. It imposes free circulation of humanitarian aid and the end of hostilities. The formula chosen legitimises Russian military action, not only against the al-Nusra Front and Daesh, but also against Ahrar el-Sham and Jaysh el-Islam. However, the declaration does not mention the Franco-British project for the creation of a pseudo-Kurdistan.
For the first time in History, a team specialised in psychological operations is attempting to fabricate a candidate for the US Presidential elections and win him a home in the White House. His victory, if they succeed, would prove that it is possible to falsify the electoral process itself. It would also call into question the power of the military on civil institutions.
The Geneva 3 negotiations for peace in Syria have just begun, after the pro-Saudi opposition finally submitted to the demands of the US State Department and agreed to participate. However, observes Thierry Meyssan, while Washington and Moscow were hoping for a rapid peace agreement in December, and adopted Resolution 2254, the United States are now convinced that the leaders chosen by Riyadh are incapable of exercising power.
The neo-conservatives and liberal hawks who have been preparing the war against Syria since 2001 have been relying on several states from the UNO and the Gulf Co-operation Council. While we know about the role played by General David Petraeus in launching and pursuing the war until today, two personalities - Jeffrey Feltman (number 2 at the UNO) and Volker Perthes (Director of the main German think tank) - have remained in the shadows. Together, with the support of Berlin, they have been using and are still manipulating the United Nations in order to destroy Syria.
The Chinese President, Xi Jinping, has embarked on a tour of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the Islamic Republic of Iran. Officially, he will not be speaking of politics, but only of economy. China is proposing that the states of the Near East participate in the construction of a new « Silk Road » in order to enhance their development and liberate themselves from Western colonialism.
New information, published by the Croatian daily Slobodna Dalmacija, alleges that the French state was responsible for the attacks which occurred in Paris in January and November 2015. Either the French authorities had previously infiltrated the groups which perpetrated these attacks, and chose not to intervene to prevent them, or else they were directly implicated in the organisation of the attacks. In any case, it remains to be determined who made these decisions, and whether or not he was acting on behalf of the Republic.
The last State of the Union address by President Obama was the occasion of a vigourous panegyric in favour of his country, in all points the best « on Earth » (sic). Unfortunately, his magnificent rhetoric was not based on a single convincing argument. His splendid oratory was thus unable to mask the reality of the decline of the United States, the result being that his Republican adversaries have made it the theme of their campaign.
While the Saud family enjoys the last few moments of its dictatorship, the decapitation of the leader of the opposition, Nimr al-Nimr, deprives half of the Saudi population of all hope. For Thierry Meyssan, the fall of the kingdom has become inevitable. It will probably be accompanied by a long period of extreme violence.
The best-kept secrets must be revealed in the end. The mafia cartel which governs Bulgaria has been caught supplying drugs and weapons to Al-Qaïda and Daesh, at the demand of the CIA, both in Libya and Syria. The affair is all the more serious since Bulgaria is a member of NATO and the European Union.
