How Russia Is Preparing for WWIII

THE SAKER  May 26, 2016 I have recently posted a piece in which I tried to debunk a few popular myths about modern warfare. Judging by many comments which I received in response to this post, I have to say that the myths in question are still alive and well and that I clearly failed to convince many readers. What I propose to do today, is to look at what Russia is really doing in response to the growing threat from the West. But first, I have to set the context or, more accurately, re-set the context in which Russia is operating. Let’s begin by looking at the AngloZionist policies towards Russia. The West’s actions First on this list is, obviously, the conquest by NATO of all of Eastern Europe. I speak of conquest because that is exactly what it is, but a conquest achieved according to the rules of 21st century warfare which I define as “80% informational, 15% economic and 5% military”. Yes, I know, the good folks of Eastern Europe were just dreaming of being subjugated by the US/NATO/EU/etc – but so what? Anyone who has read Sun Tzu will immediately recognize that this deep desire to be ‘incorporated’ into the AngloZionist “Borg” is nothing else but the result of a crushed self-identity, a deep-seated inferiority complex and, thus, a surrender which did not even have to be...

“Go east, young man” – China and Russia is Where It’s Happening

F. William Engdahl 25/05/2016 In 1865 at the end of the US Civil War New York journalist Horace Greeley popularized the expression, “”Go West, young man, and grow up with the country.” Today, some 150 years later, as the colossal economy of the United States of America sinks into obsolescence, outsourcing, income depression, and staggering real unemployment, with many countries of the European Union close to the same, the slogan should properly be changed. “Go East, young man,” and grow up with the booming economies of Eurasia, especially Russia and China. While NATO planes and warships increasingly saber rattle both Russian and Chinese territories, the two giants of Eurasia are forging relations closer than ever in their history. Energy alliances are at the heart of the process. Energy Synergies Since May, 2014, China and Russia have agreed to staggeringly large energy deals that make China less vulnerable to any NATO or Mideast supply blackmail, and Russia to any Ukraine or EU energy blackmail. In May, 2014 Russian President Vladimir Putin and China’s President Xi Jinping signed the so-called Russian East Route pipeline deal, a $400 billion agreement over 30 years that will begin sending 38 billion cubic meters of gas annually from Russia to China beginning 2018. It was followed in November 2014 by an agreement for the so-called West Route gas pipeline that will connect gas fields in...

Multipolar World

Transition to Multipolar World Only Barrier to Washington’s Domination   Federico Pieraccini  Thu, May 26, 2016   The decline of US influence in key regions around the world, such as the Middle East, the Persian Gulf, North Africa and Europe, directly results from the so-called phenomenon of imperial over-stretch. The most tangible consequences are Washington’s reduced ability to predict and react in focal areas of the world. The constant need to subdue and control each aspect of life has ended up alienating the involvement and importance of the US role in these regions. For the moment, it is important to focus on where Washington continues to demonstrate considerable influence and strategic skills, it is still able to influence the course of events. Contrary to what happens in the rest of the world, Southeast Asia and South America find themselves increasingly drawn into the sphere of American influence. Attributing these developments to an attitude or a precise Washington tactic would be a mistake. One of the major defects expressed by US foreign policy can be traced back to a lack of strategic planning. More likely we are looking at different phenomena depending on the location, be it Asia or South America. The rise of China as a major Asian superpower has completely different effects than the more dramatic collapse of the weak South American economies of Brazil, Venezuela and Argentina....

EM = MS

Employment and MS Global MS employment report shows many people with MS are leaving employment earlier than necessary Last updated: 27th May 2016 Work is a fundamental aspect of our lives. It can provide a salary, but both paid and unpaid work give a sense of self worth, an opportunity to lead an independent life and to be a fully integrated member of society. Employment is one of the ten principles to promote the quality of life of people with MS. Our new Global MS Employment Report shows that, despite recent steps forward for people affected by MS in the workplace, too many people are leaving employment earlier than they want or need to. Download the Global MS Employment Report [PDF] or read a summary of key findings and recommendations in Arabic, French, Portuguese and Spanish.  The report was informed by a survey of over 12,200 people affected by MS in 93 countries. The survey was a repeat of one which we carried out in 2010. Read the results of the 2010 survey here.    Key Findings 43% of people with MS who were not in employment had stopped working within three years of diagnosis. This figure rose to 70% after ten years. 62% of people with MS who were not in employment said fatigue prevented them from staying in work – far less than the 85% reported in 2010. Fewer people had reduced their working hours or...

Jucá afirma que ‘caiu a ficha do PSDB’ sobre operação

Eduardo Anizelli – 11.mai.2016/Folhapress O senador licenciado e ministro Romero Jucá (PMDB-RO) conversa com o presidente do Senado Renan Calheiros, durante sessão do impeachment da presidente Dilma Rousseff   RUBENS VALENTE 23/05/2016   Em uma das conversas com o ex-presidente da Transpetro Sérgio Machado, o então senador Romero Jucá (PMDB-RR) afirma que “caiu a ficha” de líderes do PSDB sobre o potencial de danos que a Operação Lava Jato pode causar em vários partidos. “Todo mundo na bandeja para ser comido”, diz Jucá. Sérgio Machado, que foi do PSDB antes de se filiar ao PMDB, afirma que “o primeiro a ser comido vai ser o Aécio [Neves (PSDB-MG)”, e acrescenta: “O Aécio não tem condição, a gente sabe disso, porra. Quem que não sabe? Quem não conhece o esquema do Aécio? Eu, que participei de campanha do PSDB…”. “É, a gente viveu tudo”, completa Jucá, sem avançar nos detalhes. Machado tenta refrescar a memória de Jucá: “O que que a gente fez junto, Romero, naquela eleição, para eleger os deputados, para ele [Aécio] ser presidente da Câmara?” Não houve resposta de Jucá. Aécio presidiu a Câmara dos Deputados entre 2001 e 2002. Machado diz que a “situação é grave” porque “eles”, em referência à força tarefa da Lava Jato, “querem pegar todo mundo”. Jucá concorda, ironizando o plano. “Acabar com a classe política para ressurgir, construir uma nova casta, pura”, afirma....
