America’s Top Scientists Confirm: U.S. Goal Now Is To Conquer Russia

Eric Zuesse The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists published a study, on 1 March 2017, which opened: The US nuclear forces modernization program has been portrayed to the public as an effort to ensure the reliability and safety of warheads in the US nuclear arsenal, rather than to enhance their military capabilities. In reality, however, that program has implemented revolutionary new technologies that will vastly increase the targeting capability of the US ballistic missile arsenal. This increa...

World War 3 May be Delayed, Not Canceled

I know that most of us here are concerned about World War 3. I want to comment on this as well as terms and meaning. For example, many say there will never be a WW3 because the elites are in bed together. This is not any evidence that there will be no deception or false flag to engineer events that will send men and women out to kill other men and women. They are already doing it in and to the middle east and their people. Why will the WEST be sparred from all violence and blow-back from...

NEW YORKER late October, I received an e-mail from “The PropOrNot Team,” which described itself as a “newly-formed independent team of computer scientists, statisticians, national security professionals, journalists and political activists, dedicated to identifying propaganda—particularly Russian propaganda targeting a U.S. audience.” PropOrNot said that it had identified two hundred Web sites that “qualify as Russian propaganda outlets.” The sites’ reach was wide—they are read by at least fift...

Winter US war games on Norway-Russia border

CNN An American tank full of US Marines crashes through the silence of the sub-zero pine forest, far above the Arctic Circle, as unidentified drones hover overhead and yellow and green smoke fills the freezing air. The troops' target? A bunker up ahead, manned by Norwegian soldiers. Shots ring out as the Marines advance, crunching through the snow beneath gray winter skies. It's all role-play, of course -- the maneuvers are part of a training exercise, but one jarringly imbued with the ne...

Russia: US Won’t Talk about Missile Shield

RUSSIA TODAY Washington continues to shun talks on Moscow’s concerns over US missile defense plans, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said, adding that Russia’s proposals have been repeatedly left unanswered. “We were not able to convince them [the US] to continue dialog on this issue [about missile defense] and, as I see it, it is not the best time for such consultations now,” Antonov told journalists at an international conference called “Shangri-La dialog,” which address...

Russian Defense Paper: NATO & US are a Threat

A new defence appraisal has named the USA as one of the threats to Russia's national security for the first time, signifying how much relations between Russia and the west have deteriorated in recent years.

BRICS New Development Bank Gains Traction Quietly

While Beijing's Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) has won overwhelming support (to the surprise of many, including China itself), another bank headquartered in China seems to be flying under the world's radar. Few people have heard of the BRICS New Development Bank (NDB). This was the strong impression I got after visiting Washington, Sydney and Canberra over the last couple of months. The NDB idea was proposed in 2011 by the Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz, and it initially encou...
