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.

Former papal nuncio to the US (Holy See ambassador), Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, wrote to President Donald Trump on 7 June 2020 beseeching him to stand firm against the alleged anti-racist protests.
The Archbishop believes that the public response to the Covid-19 pandemic was medically unfounded and constituted the largest social engineering operation in history. According to him, it was sponsored by the same actors as those behind the world demonstrations sparked by the killing of (...)
Regardless of the anti-Chinese hysteria of the group that imposed Western health policy responses to the Covid-19 epidemic, it demonstrated Western dependence on Chinese manufactured products. This led the Trump administration to move from a desire to rebalance trade to a military confrontation, without however resorting to war. The sabotage of the Silk Roads has officially begun.
Two Venezuelan citizens on board an Air Portugal flight arrived in Caracas where they were met at the airport by the French ambassador.
The first passenger was traveling under a false identity, thereby contravening the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) international air transport agreement. The second passenger, who was the former’s maternal uncle, was carrying explosives in the hold.
The Venezuelan government sanctioned Air Portugal by banning all flights on its territory (...)
On instructions from my Government, I should like to convey to you the statement that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates of the Syrian Arab Republic issued on 11 February 2020 with regard to the briefing by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on the OPCW internal investigation into the leaking of information from the Duma report.
A few days ago, the OPCW Technical Secretariat held a briefing on the findings of its internal investigation into the (...)
The Taliban claimed to have shot down a US plane and helicopter in Afghanistan. The E-11 A ABCN bombardier allegedly served as the CIA’s mobile command for Michael D’Andrea, the head of its anti-Iran operations and, as such, the person responsible for the assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani .
According to the Arab media, the downing of the plane was overseen by elements of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.
After CentCom denied losing two aircraft, photos started turning up (...)
The international press reports the events in Bolivia with caution. It describes the overthrow of President Evo Morales, evokes yet another coup d’état, but fails to identify what is really happening. It does not see the emergence of a new political force, hitherto unknown in Latin America. For Thierry Meyssan, if the continent’s religious authorities do not immediately assume their responsibilities, nothing can prevent the spread of chaos.
Israel is without a government, while protests are rampant in the Sudan, Algeria, Lebanon, Iraq, Kuwait and Iran.
In each of these countries, the hand of the US or US-related organizations looms large, as was the case during the "Arab Spring" in 2010-11.
At that time, numerous sociological studies had emphasized the characteristics of the countries concerned in an attempt to explain such a unique phenomenon. But the features differed from one country to another; hence, the favourable (...)
On 16 October 2019, the International Coalition set fire to the French-owned Lafarge Cement Factory in Jalabiyeh (on the Turkish border, north of Aleppo) before the arrival of the Syrian Arab Army in the area.
Thus, the traces of a secret operation of crucial importance have literally gone up in smoke.
The plant had delivered 6 million tons of cement to jihadists for them to build underground fortifications from which to wage a war of position against Syrian government forces, drawing (...)
Since the transfer of sovereignty from the British Empire to the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong is along with Macao, one of the two Chinese special administrative regions. Under the 1997’s agreements, Beijing established the western democracy in Hong Kong, which had never seen it before. For the first time, the Parliament was elected by the people.
However, while the return of Hong Kong to China marked an improvement in the living conditions of the population, it remained culturally (...)
We are ending the publication of the section of Thierry Meyssan’s book « Right Before Our Eyes » which deals with the Muslim Brotherhood. In this episode, the Brotherhood, with Daesh, realises its dream to re-establish the Caliphate. Thus the first terrorist state managed to function for two years – with the help of the Western powers.
The recent revelations about the attacks which took place in Barcelona and Cambrils in 2017 – like those concerning the previous attack in Madrid in 2004 – pose exactly the same legitimate questions as those formulated in other countries about other attacks. Why, everywhere, do the Islamist terrorists appear to be linked to NATO?
We are continuing the publication of Thierry Meyssan’s new book, « Right Before Our Eyes ». In this episode, the luck of the draw changes hands. US-Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was overthrown in the wake of gigantic demonstrations, while the invasion of Damascus failed.
We are continuing the publication of Thierry Meyssan’s new book, « Right Before Our Eyes, Fake Wars and Big Lies ». In this episode, he takes us back to the first semester of 2011, during which, supported by the United States and the United Kingdom, the Muslim Brotherhood approached or won power in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya.
We are continuing the publication of Thierry Meyssan’s book, « Before Our Very Eyes, Fake Wars and Big Lies ». In this episode, he describes how the terrorist organisation of the Muslim Brotherhood was integrated into the Pentagon. It was attached to the anti-Soviet network constituted with the ex-Nazis during the Cold War.
