Although the principle of state sovereignty lies at the heart of international law, the super powers have not refrained from corrupting governments, destabilising societies, eliminating their leaders and even overthrowing regimes by means of covert action. While this form of interference is relatively inexpensive when weighed against the potential gains, it inevitably undermines trust among nations.
The Anglo-Saxons have become the masters of the game. As joint signatories to a 1948 secret military pact (UK-USA + Canada, Australia, New Zealand), they fashioned espionage and covert action tools to serve their common project: the Cold War. They were rivaling in this field against the Soviet Union, over which they had already attained undeniable superiority. Both Maoist China and post-colonial France also resorted to analogous means with a view to securing zones of interest, mainly in Africa.
The landscape changed completely after the demise of the USSR. China stopped financing armed revolutionary groups all around and concentrated on pragmatic intelligence efforts to sustain economic cooperation development. France withdrew from its private reserve in Africa to leave room for the European Union. Having outlived the Yeltsin abyss, Russian intelligence set about restructuring at the national level and in their historical area of influence (newly independent ex-Soviet states) by mobilizing against external intrusions rather than interfering in the affairs of other countries.
As of 1995, the Anglo-Saxons invested massively in their secret services, whose budget tripled over a 15-year period. In addition, they have drawn the Israeli services into their structure either as full members or as subcontractors. In 2009, the Anglo-Saxon services (except Israel) operate on an employment level of 250,000 men and a budget exceeding 100 billion dollars (i.e. 15 times higher than Russia’s, virtually their main competitor). In effect, espionage and covert action have become the essential tools of forced globalisation.
In Kiev, for more than a week, massive demonstrations are trying to force the government to go back on it’s decision not to sign the association agreement with the European Union.
In fact, Ukraine has been historically divided into two populations: in the West, the pro-European Union supporters, and in the East, the pro-Russians. It is on this division that the ’’orange revolution’’ had bloomed and that the protesters would like to revive.
Yet, the crowd control contingent at these protests is (...)
Srda Popovic—one of the founding members of Otpor!

According to Carl Gibson and Steve Horn, who scrutinized the Stratfor e-mails outed by Wikileaks and have verified the facts with those concerned, Srda (...)
The agreement that was concluded between the 5+1 and Iran, on November 24th 2013 in Geneva, had been preceded by secret negotiations between Tehran and Washington, reported the Associated Press.

The US delegation was headed by Deputy Secretary of State William Burns and the Vice-President’s national security counsellor Jake Sullivan. The (...)
For four years, 2003-2006, the CIA ran a program to turn Al-Qaeda members trapped in Guantánamo into double agents. The latter were trained in a secret facility located on the military base, known as "Penny Lane".
According to the officials who divulged the information, this program has conditioned enough terrorists to become informants, thereby serving as precious assets during the arrest or execution of Al-Qaeda leaders.
However, this narrative is actually a smokescreen: the majority of (...)
What has been happening in Syria for the past three years? According to NATO and GCC media reports, the "regime" has shed blood to suppress a democratic revolution. However this version is contradicted by the current support for the government estimated at, according to sources, between 60 and 90 % of the population. The truth is quite different: NATO and the GCC have successively lost a war of succession and a fourth generation Nicaraguan-type war. It is they, and they alone, who organized and financed the death of 120,000 Syrians.
Navy Secretary Ray Mabus has suspended Vice Admiral Ted Branch and Rear Admiral Bruce Loveless, in connection with an NCIS investigation into a bribery scandal.

Vice Admiral Ted Branch (shown (...)
While Russia and the United States reached the beginning of an agreement on the Middle East in general and Syria in particular, the war continues in Syria. This paradox can be explained foremost by the indiscipline and hatred shown by the Turkish and Saudi governments. According to Thierry Meyssan, by revealing the role of Hakan Fidan, the Wall Street Journal is sending a warning to Ankara.
Nine Lebanese hostages in Syria and two Turkish hostages in Lebanon were released, on October 19th 2013. The return of each group was celebrated in the Beyrouth and Istanbul airports.
The nine shiite Lebanese hostages had been abducted by the Al-Nusra front (North Storm Squad), 17 months ago, on their way back from a pilgrimage in Iran. The jihadists requested for their liberation a ransom of 150 million US dollars from the Hezbollah, to whom they accused the pilgrims of belonging.
In the (...)

The revelations of Edward Snowden that never were: the monitoring programs of the United States and its Anglo-Saxon allies have long been known. The novelty resides in their magnitude. No one can escape. For the Germans, it was a rude awakening to discover that, according to the NSA surveillance map, they are the major targets in Europe. Their best ally, to which they have always been faithful, not only does not trust them and but also spies on them.
The Buenos Aires Federal Appeals Court ordered the investigation into the involvement of former interior minister Carlos Vladimir Corach [photo] in the 18 July 1994 bomb attack against the Jewish Community Center (AMIA) located in the Argentinian capital.
The explosion devastated the building, killing 85 people and wounding more than 300. The attack was quickly attributed to Hezbollah and Iran. Ever since, it has been used by Israel to accuse the Lebanese resistance network and the Iranian (...)

According to the Times of London, British Prime Minister David Cameron suggested to his NATO partners the idea of assassinating President Bashar al-Assad and organizing a military coup in Damascus.
In such a scenario, the new Syrian leader would break with the anti-Israeli resistance, while most of the Baathist apparatus would remain in power.
This is not the first time that "the camp of democracy" plans to set up a military dictatorship in Syria. It was already the implicit objective (...)

In the first part, geopolitical analyst William Engdahl discussed the role of CIA’s Graham Fuller in creating the policy of using angry Jihadist Muslims as trained terrorists in Afghanistan and elsewhere against the Soviet Union. Herein—largely drawing on the revelations made by FBI whistle-blower Sibel Edwards—Engdahl throws the spotlight on the entire CIA-sponsored Islamic Jihadist operations run through Fetullah Gülen across Turkey into Central Asia and Russia and China.
Are there too many coincidences in the Boston Bombings official narrative to call them coincidences? Behind each one lurks the shadow of Graham Fuller—a top CIA strategist who famously advocated co-opting Islamic extremists to further advance the US agenda in Central Asia—and his cozy ties with the accused brothers’ uncle. William Engdahl delves into the ramifications of the Fuller-Tsarni connection, the most compelling of the Boston smoking guns, and the threatening can of worms it has opened up.
U.S. drone bases are multiplying on the African continent: Niger has agreed to hosting surveillance drones on its soil”; neighboring Burkina Faso already has one; two new drone facilities are opening in Ethiopia and the Seychelles; and UN peacekeepers in Congo want to use U.S. drones. Drones, which have terrorized Somalia from AFRICOM’s base in Djibouti for the past seven years, have become the centerpiece of the modern U.S. version of gunboat diplomacy.
Last week, the foreign ministers of Argentina and Iran signed an agreement to establish a joint Truth Commission to investigate the 1994 bombing at the Jewish Community Center (AMIA) in Buenos Aires and 1992 bombing at Israeli Embassy building . This has infuriated the Zionist regime and the Jewish lobbyists in the US, Canada and several European countries.
The Israeli propagandists have called Argentina’s Jewish foreign minister Hector Timmerman “a self-hating Jew” and have blamed (...)
