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.
According to an anonymous official, cited abundantly in the Israeli press, General Aviv Kochavi (director of military intelligence from 2010 to 2014 and Tsahal’s future Chief of Staff) had probably organized several attempts to assassinate the elected Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad.
General Kochavi (see photo) thought that if Assad was eliminated, then Tsahal could invade Syria and destroy the Iranian bases there.
On the contrary, according to the same official who does not wish to be (...)
The trial of Mehdi Nemmouche, charged with the massacre at the Jewish Museum in Brussels (24 May 2014) has just begun in Belgium.
Nemmouche was arrested in Nice (France) with a bag containing a beret and weapons. This resulted in him being identified as the assassin. However from day 1, he has protested his innocence. Detained for four years, he finally has the opportunity to present his defence.
Confirming our hypothesis , he declared to the court that he found the bag and that he (...)
Operation “Timber Sycamore”, initiated by President Barack Obama was privatized a little before the election of President Donald Trump. It is now coordinated by the investment fund KKR (established by Henry Kravis and whose military activities are led by the former head of the CIA, General David Petraeus).
“Timber Sycamore” is the most important arms trafficking operation in History. It involves at least 17 governments. The transfer of weapons, meant for jihadist organizations, is carried out (...)
Washington has asked Ottawa to arrest Meng Wanzhou and to extradite her. This young woman is the financial director and daughter of the founder of Huawei, the Chinese Telecom Giant. She was arrested on 6 December in Canada.
The motive for the war undertaken by Washington against Huawei is deep-rooted and spurious are the justifications.
The heart of the problem is that the Chinese firm uses a system of encryption that prevents the NSA from intercepting its communications. A number of (...)
Valentin Vasilescu, an expert on military affairs, comments on the role of the Israeli and US reconnaissance planes in the incident at Kertch. These facts have been confirmed by the Russian FSB (which the Russian Federation’s Coast-Guards depend on) and which has disclosed videos recorded during the interrogations of the captured Ukrainian marines and a document seized on board one of their ships.
Russia has made public three interrogations of Ukrainian marines taken prisoner during the Kertch incident on 25 November 2018 and a document (photo) seized on board one of the ships.
According to this document and these videos, the incident had been planned by Ukraine collaborating with foreign powers. Two officers from Ukraine’s military intelligence service were on board the ships to coordinate operations. They were the ones that forbade the marines from responding to messages from the (...)
In the context of the European Security and Common Defense Policy (ESCP) the EU has a small intelligence service accountable to the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, for the time being Federica Mogherini. This unit would probably be limited to producing summaries based satellite data and would not be empowered to carry out espionage
Going forward, the Union would have an à la carte programme of the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO). Although (...)
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 (...)

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 (...)
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 (...)

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.
