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.
Officially the Pentagon is fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan, but according to the Washington Post , it is secretly arming them, professedly to help them fight ISIS (aka Daesh), another official enemy of the United States.
At the same time, however, numerous testimonies from several countries of the "Greater Middle East" reveal that the very same Pentagon, who is officially fighting ISIS there, is covertly arming it.
These facts prove that the Pentagon is still going after the (...)
According to The Times, the British signals-intelligence service (Government Communications Headquarters, aka GCHQ [photo]), has been tasked with countering anti-vaccine arguments on the internet.
The British government is quite convinced that such arguments could only have been planted by its hereditary enemy, Moscow. It therefore authorized its intelligence services to adapt the tools used against the propaganda of the Islamic Emirate (Daesh) to tackle this new enemy.
The GCHQ has the (...)

The Danish press has published a series of revelations about the state’s participation in a vast operation to spy on its own agencies and on its private defense companies by the United States.
As it turns out, in 1992, President Bill Clinton asked then Danish Prime Minister Poul Nyrup Rasmussen for access to his country’s core internet system. The latter, a diehard Atlanticist, readily acceded. The relations procedures between the NSA (National (...)
Azerbaijan is relying on NATO secret service agents within the former Warsaw Pact to mobilize the international media against the Armenians.
The Nizami Ganjavi International Center, named after a famous 12th century poet, was founded in Baku on 30 September 2012. Its board comprises many political figures from the Caucasus, the Balkans, Eastern Europe and the Baltic States. The Center is co-financed by Azerbaijan and the Exxon-Mobil Corporation.
In its April 2020 monthly magazine, (...)
According to the US House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the Chinese intelligence services have outpaced those of the United States at the strategic, political and military levels (except in the Middle East).
Indeed, for 30 years, the USA first believed that the disappearance of the USSR would leave them without a rival, then they overhauled their intelligence services gearing them towards the destruction of state structures in the Middle East (Rumsfeld strategy/Cebrowski), (...)
President Donald Trump’s announcement on 27 July 2020 that he would soon designate Antifa as a terrorist organization is based on a 24 June report by the Homeland Security Department.
Entitled "The Syrian Conflict and Its Nexus to US-based Antifascist Movements) (downloadable below), and drawing on Thierry Meyssan’s article "NATO’S Anarchist Brigades" of 12 September 2017, the report describes Antifa’s engagement alongside the Kurdish forces.
Antifa is a movement subsidized by speculator (...)

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 (...)
