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.
On 2 October 2018, the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi disappeared after entering the Consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul.
According to the US press, a trap would have been laid out for him, when he was lured into the consulate to hand over to him his new identity documents following his recent marriage. About a dozen Saudi Secret Service Agents entered the consulate to question him. They tortured him, killed him and cut him apart, limb by limb, before sending his remains to the Saudi (...)

Today, the new US ambassador to Athens, Geoffrey R. Pyatt, who, together with Victoria Nuland organized the coup d’etat in Kiev in 2014 , is determined to set up an Independent Orthodox Church in Ukraine.
The Orthodox Church is organized into 7 patriarchies. Of these, the patriarch of Constantinople is “the first among equals”. The ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I, has practically no religious followers in Turkey but shepherds a flock consisting of the Greek diaspora (...)

As former senior intelligence officials, we feel compelled to respond in the wake of the ill-considered and unprecedented remarks and actions by the White House regarding the removal of John Brennan’s security clearances. We know John to be an enormously talented, capable, and patriotic individual who devoted his adult life to the service of this nation. Insinuations and allegations of wrongdoing on the part of Brennan while in office are baseless. Since leaving government (...)

Israel has resumed its campaign of assassinations targeting scientists from the Middle East
Israel’s approach has been systematic. First it crossed off Iraqi military scientists, then it moved onto Iranian nuclear scientists. Now, the Hebrew State has sponsored the elimination of General Aziz Asber, one of Syria’s leading military scientists.
Doctor Asber (see photo) was the Deputy Director of Station 4 of the Syrian Centre for Research and Scientific Studies. He was an expert in rockets (...)
The Turkish Secret Service, the MIT (the Turkish acronym for Millî İstihbarat Teşkilatı) made an unsuccessful attempt to kidnap a Turkish citizen in Mongolia.
Considered by the MIT as connected to the preacher Fethullah Gülen, Professor Veysel Akçay had been kidnapped at the entrance of the school where he was working, by 5 members of the Turkish secret service. He was then transported to the airport of Oulan Bator where a CL604 Challenger (a plane of the Turkish Army) was waiting for him.
The evacuation of the White Helmets which had been requested by the United Kingdom, was debated by the Summit of the Heads of State and the governing body of NATO on 11 June 2018.
In the final analysis, it was the Organization of the Atlantic Alliance that coordinated the evacuation of 422 White Helmets and their families with the help of Israel and Jordan, both of which have an office which is linked to Nato headquarters in Brussels.
Although the Alliance supervised the jihadists for (...)
Is Vladimir Putin’s Russia a Wild West where Power can strip a billionaire of his fortune, like in the days of Boris Yeltsin? Is Russia interfering with the United States electoral process? According to the US ruling class, these are questions which leave no room for doubt. And yet all it needed was for President Putin to propose that President Trump accept a mutual exchange of letters rogatory to see panic taking hold of Washington.
Thierry Meyssan does not accept the story of the beginning of hostilities in Syria as presented by the Western and Gulf Press over the last seven years. He is therefore returning to these events to examine them in the light of certain elements which have become known since then. As in all science, political science moves closer to the truth by questioning its previous conclusions and integrating new observations into its reasoning.
On the basis of information provided by a US intelligence service, on 28 June 2018 the Belgian police arrested two Iranian nationals who were preparing an attack during the meeting of the Mujahideens of the People in Paris-Villepinte .
From the time the investigation began, the French police requested its German homologues to arrest an Iranian diplomatic, accredited to Vienna, who probably sponsored the attack. The latter was immediately arrested in violation of his diplomatic immunity. (...)
Around 4000 persons, most of who came from Eastern Europe, have participated in an all expenses paid Annual Meeting of the Mujahideens of the People in Paris.
Sponsored by Maryam Radjavi, the life cycle of the Mujahideens of the People has been bizarre:
• stage one: they were an Iranian Marxist political party;
• stage two: they metamorphized into a private Iraqi army serving Saddam Hussein
• stage three: they were classified as a “terrorist” organization by the United States and the (...)
A polemic is evolving right before our eyes within the US Intelligence Community. Some members are declaring that while North Korea has undertaken to destroy the site of launching missiles from Sohae, it does not actually have the slightest intention of doing so.
This debate arises after President Donald Trump made a commitment to withdraw US troops from South Korea.
This situation cannot help but bring back to our mind the identical pledge made by Jimmy Carter, during his 1976 electoral (...)
In the hope of obtaining some help in extremis, a hireling in a bind writes to his boss recalling how for years he had served him faithfully. The “hireling” is Ricardo Martinelli, President of Panama from 2009 - 2012. From June 2017 he has been detained in the United States at the request of the current government of Panama which is charging him of, inter alia, spying and tapping the telephones of more than 150 people when he was President. Martinelli’s letter has just created a sensation in the Panama media because it is addressed … to the US government. From Panama, the analyst Julio Yao, addresses the issue.
According to the German press, in the eighties the Bundesnachrichtendienst (the German Federal Intelligence Services — BND) got hold of a sample of Novichok through an ex-Soviet defector.
It is highly likely that Germany would shared this product with the United States and the United Kingdom in order to develop methods of protections and anti-poisons.
This revelation contradicts the theory immediately put forward by Theresa May’s government that only Russia was able to produce the nerve (...)

Stella Calloni reveals SouthCom’s secret plan to overthrow the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. This document, which we have already published, contradicts President Trump’s engagements to put an end to the régime changes which have characterised US imperial policy. It demonstrates that the international image of chaos in Venezuela is entirely fabricated and is an exclusive invention of Anglo-Saxon propaganda.
Good morning. I’m delighted to be with you here today. I’ve worked with my close colleague and friend Dr Hans-Georg Maaßen for many years. BfV are a vital partner for MI5 at the heart of a sophisticated European intelligence network. And Germany is of course at the heart of Europe. It therefore feels right that I’m here in Berlin as the place to give the first public speech outside the UK by a serving Director-General of MI5. Thank you, Hans-Georg, for the invitation.
Today I (...)

On 14 April 2018 the US Representative to the UN, Nikki Haley declared that the “United States refuses to initiate dialogue and to enter into discussions with President Bashar al-Assad”.
Contradicting this assertion, the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar reveals that three high level meetings took place between the two States. However, the fourth meeting, scheduled in March, was cancelled by Syria on the grounds that it would serve no purpose so long as Washington did not reconceive its (...)
Saudi Arabia has launched a programme to construct 560 mosques in Bangladesh, So announced Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in Dhaka, an announcement made whilst his electoral campaign was in full swing. He made it clear that the Wahhabite Imams of these “model mosques” will spread “the message of an Islam that brings peace”. Each mosque will have its own cultural centre.
The new mosques will form a network in each district of the country. This proves that they do not respond to a need but to a (...)
On 31 March 2018, intervening in the AKP’s regional congress at Ümraniye, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan threatened to force Kosovo’s Prime Minister to resign.

The Services then repatriated them to Turkey. The operation took place with the support of the Head of Kosovo’s Secret Services (Agjencia Kosovare e (...)
“Eastern Ghouta was sheltering « 400 000 moderate rebels»”. This is what the press and Western governments asserted.
However, the military operation of the Syrian forces undertaken with the support of Russian military units, in the context of the cessation of hostilities with the Syrian Rebels (Resolution 2401), produces a completely different result.
As of Saturday 24 March, 94 % of the territory is freed and it seems hardly probable that huge throngs of persons will emerge from the ruins. (...)
On 17 March 2018, the Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Sergey Lavrov denounced the presence of the US, British and French Special Forces in Syria; this is something that both London and Paris deny. He drove home the point, insisting: “What this presence means is that the issue is no longer a war by proxy but direct intervention in a war”.
Mr. Lavrov then went on to give a stern warning to Washington, London and Paris, should they take the decision to bomb Damascus. The documents seized (...)
A number of eyewitnesses have testified to Sana Agency that on 26 February 2018, two anti-Daesh Coalition’s helicopters landed at Twaimin, in the South-East of al-Shadadi.

During his stay in Washington, during which he participated in several conferences, the former Turkish Chief of Staff, General İlker Başbuğ, made the following bold declaration: in his opinion, the United States and Israel had arrested Abdullah Ocalan in 1999 so they could take control of the PKK, an organization of Turkish Kurds.
General Basbug follows Kemalism. He was trained at Sandhurst Military Academy (United Kingdom). At the end of the Cold War, he considered that there was no longer (...)
During the discussion of Resolution 2401 on the ceasefire and the humanitarian pause in Syria in the UN Security Council on March 12, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley implied that the US might launch military strikes at Syria similar to last April when such actions were based on unfounded unilateral US accusations of the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian Government. Russia and Syria were also accused of violating the ceasefire and causing the suffering of civilians, (...)
General John Kelly, Secretary General of the White House, has suspended the accreditation to access to State Secrets, granted to Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s Special Adviser.
Although the US Press presents this issue by evoking the judicial woes of President Trump’s son-in-law, they are unaware of the reasons for this decision.
It seems that some members of the administration don’t really appreciate the fact that Kushner, as a special advisor, has a privilege that exempts him from providing (...)
