L’histoire de la Russie met en évidence les mensonges des médias

La Russie m’a toujours fasciné – les valeureux héros qui ont défendu la Moscovie contre la Horde d’Or, la fastueuse et mystérieuse foi orthodoxe, les vastes espaces, la philosophie et la culture remarquables, la révolution bolchevique contre l’impérialisme… Il est clair que l’Occident a toujours été...

Griechenland: Ausbruch aus dem Eurogefängnis

Es ist nicht einfach, den Euro-Monitaurus zu erlegen. Die Griechen haben nunmehr schon seit Jahren gelitten und auf die harte Tour gelernt, dass mit glänzenden Euros in den Händen die Prosperität nicht wunderbarerweise hinter der nächsten Ecke wartete. Was wartete,...

Russian history exposes media lies

Russian history exposes media lies

Russia has always fascinated me—the stern heroes who defended Muscovy against the Golden Horde, the ornate and mysterious orthodox faith, the vast spaces, the remarkable learning and philosophy, the Bolshevik Revolution against imperialism...

Ukraine & Egypt: A tale of two coups

US plans for Egypt and Ukraine are falling apart and Russia is scrambling to pick up the pieces. In the latest color revolution, it was not an army but a rump parliament that pulled the plug on the elected president on a wave of protest, pushing out Ukraine’s Viktor Yanukovich on 22 February. He apo...

Greece: Breaking out of the Euro prison

Slaying the Euro monitaur is not easy. Greeks have been suffering for years now, having learned the hard way that prosperity with shiny euros in their hands was not miraculously just waiting around the corner.

US-Yemen: Beheading the Dragon

US-Yemen: Beheading the Dragon

IS continues to confound. Not only for its ability to outmanoeuver the US (remember it is a rag-tag unfunded collection of wildly courageous jihadists fight a monster Goliath) but for its defiance in pursuing its grim revolutionary justice despite the threats of empire.
