French intellectual, founder and chairman of Voltaire Network and the Axis for Peace Conference. His columns specializing in international relations feature in daily newspapers and weekly magazines in Arabic, Spanish and Russian. His last two books published in English : 9/11 the Big Lie and Pentagate.
While the cease-fire in Syria, drawn up by the US Secretary of State and his Russian counterpart, seemed to be holding – apart from the Israëli violations on the first day - the Pentagon attacked the Syrian Arab Army for the second time. Washington claimed it was a mistake, but the reaction of the US ambassador to the UNO, on the contrary, made it seem more like the execution of a plan. What game is Washington playing?
The 27 States who want to remain in the European Union met in Bratislava (Slovakia) for a separate summit – which means without the United Kingdom. They were there to think about their common project, but did little more than rehash the same old songs. The world is changing. The United Kingdom is adapting. The European Union is stagnating.
The United States and their allies will be commemorating the 15-year anniversary of 9/11. For Thierry Meyssan, it’s the occasion to take an honest look at Washington’s policies since that date – it is not a pretty picture. There are two ways of looking at it – either the White House’s version of the 9/11 attacks is correct, in which case their response has been particularly counter-productive, or else it’s a lie, in which case they have succeeded in pillaging the Greater Middle East.
The current Kurdistan project, supported by France and the United States, has no connection with the legitimate project which was recognised by the same countries during the Sèvres Conference of 1920. It is not even situated anywhere near the same territory! This pseudo-Kurdistan is no more than a Western bribe intended to turn the Syrian Kurds against Damascus. Its creation will not solve the Kurdish question, and would provoke a conflict similar to that which has opposed Israël and Palestine for close to 70 years. In order to untangle the present situation, Thierry Meyssan retraces the contradictory positions of the nine main external powers implicated in this affair.
Denouncing the interpretation of the military coup d’état in Turkey as a manoeuvre by the United States against Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Thierry Meyssan proposes a larger view which integrates the prior resignation of Ahmet Davutoğlu and the re-establishing of commercial relations with Israël, Iran and Russia. Thereafter, he anticipates what the new Turkish strategy will probably be.
Although we don’t know the details of what was agreed between the Chinese and Syrian armies, the existence of an agreement between them has modified both the battle-field and the balance of international relations. Last year, the Anglo-Saxon secret services broadcast a number of hair-brained interpretations of this same subject – today, Thierry Meyssan gives a precise analysis of the important points.
For 30 years, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) has been sub-contracting the legal part of illegal CIA operations. Without rousing suspicions, it has put in place the biggest network of corruption in the world, bribing trade unions and management syndicates , political parties both on both the Right and Left so that they defend the interests of the United States instead of their members. In this article, Thierry Meyssan describes the extent of this system.
The history of NATO and its current activities enables us to understand how the West has woven its lies and why it is now a prisoner of them. The elements contained in this articles are shocking, but it is impossible to deny the facts. The only other solution is to cling to the lies and persist in hanging on.
In August 2014, Israel participated in driving out the Blue Helmets from the Golan buffer zone, and for two years entrusted this territory to al-Qaeda, to which it guarantees logistics. Then, Benjamin Netanyahu announced his intention to violate Resolution 338 and to annex Golan under occupation. This was the last straw. The US and the Russian Federation have decided to call Tel-Aviv to heel.
The Western Press keeps repeating the same message – by leaving the European Union, the British have isolated themselves from the rest of the world, and will have to deal with terrible economic consequences. And yet, the fall in the Pound could be an advantage within the Commonwealth, which is a far greater family than the Union, and present on all six continents. Famous for its pragmatism, the City could quickly become the international centre for the yuan and implant the Chinese currency in the very heart of the Union.
While the world Press is searching for ways to re-start the reconstruction of Europe, still without Russia and now without the United Kingdom, Thierry Meyssan considers that nothing can now prevent the collapse of the system. However, he points out, what is at stake is not the European Union itself, but the institutions which enable the domination of the world by the United States, and the integrity of the United States themselves.
Looking back to the mass killing in Orlando, Thierry Meyssan reminds us that the conflict between Daesh and the Syrian Arab Republic is above all a struggle between two forms of society, one dominated by men, the other equal in rights. It is also the occasion to underline the fact that the Syrian civilisation has a long yet little-known history of the integration of homosexuals, which Daesh is attempting to destroy.
The drop in oil prices has given the lie to the «Hubbert peak» theory. There will probably not be a penury of energy in the coming century. The price decrease is also probably the first step in dismantling the «human origin of global warming» theory. It has deprived the alternative sources of energy of any validity, as well as investments in hydrocarbons from shale and deep-water drilling. It has thoroughly shaken the geopolitical scene, and is likely to be responsible for calling the US military back from the Near East and forcing the Pentagon to definitively abandon the theory of «constructive chaos».
Intergovernmental organisations are supposed to unite the efforts of member-states in order to achieve results that they could not manage alone. We might therefore conclude that the UNO and the EU are coordinating the fight against Daesh. Instead of which, these two organisations are hindering the forces on the ground and masking state support for international terrorism.
Washington and Moscow are working together to develop the military strength of the Syrian Kurds, allegedly to combat Daesh, but in reality to fight President Erdoğan, whom the two great powers would be happy to remove. But the apprentice dictator of Ankara is preparing to turn the tables. He has begun to re-shuffle the population at the Syrian frontier in order to catch the Turkish Kurds in a vice, and is preparing to use his Syrian Kurdish spy, Salih Muslim - armed by the United States and Russia – to create a Kurdistan in Syria to which he can expel the Turkish Kurds.
The G7 meetings, which were originally little more than simple informal conversations between the Western leaders, flirted for a while with the idea of becoming a world governement before falling back to organising a sort of public relations training course. The Ise-Shima summit reviewed the world’s main problems, and defined, for each of them, the elements of language which should be employed.
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.
