Fort Russ: A World Without a "White Tiger"? The Geopolitics of Zvyagintsev's "The Return"

Fort Russ: A World Without a "White Tiger"? The Geopolitics of Zvyagintsev's "The Return" | Global politics | Scoop.it
Ultimately Zvyagintsev's portrayal of "ideal" Russia is of a country which allows itself to be victimized with no fear of retaliation, and which pursues an isolationist foreign policy. If anything, it serves to confirm the notion that's already widespread in Russia that the liberals are unfit to govern that country.

Exclusive: The bizarre everyday reality of living in the 'Islamic State'

Exclusive: The bizarre everyday reality of living in the 'Islamic State' | Global politics | Scoop.it
It is one of the strangest states ever created. The Islamic State wants to force all humanity to believe in its vision of a religious and social utopia existing in the first days of Islam. Women are to be treated as chattels, forbidden to leave the house unless they are accompanied by a male relative. People deemed to be pagans, like the Yazidis, can be bought and sold as slaves. Punishments such as beheadings, amputations and flogging become the norm. All those not pledging allegiance to the ca
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Even though for us it looks like shocking, yet it wasn't like that in the first days of Islam, it is a crude mischaracterization. The ISIS-imagined society is not a utopia, it should be called rather a dystopia.

 The Origin of the ‘New Cold War’ :  By Eric ZUESSE

Enrique Ferro's insight:

This will be history, replacing myth. So: if at the start it might seem unbelievable, I request the reader — please click onto the sources; and, as you read them, you will (if you have been getting your ‘news’ from the popular mainstream and ‘alternative’ ‘news’ sources) experience the replacement of myth by actual history. The world in our time will come directly alive via the most-reliable sources that exist; and it clearly contradicts, it disproves, the widespread myth that has been projected from the ‘news.’

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Where is the «facing up to wartime actions» by either Washington or London? Precisely, none. So is it any wonder that Japan perhaps feels an ambivalence about unilateral professions of guilt when Western crimes of similar magnitude are simply ignored or even justified by the West?

Enrique Ferro's insight:

It is wisdom. The Americans have forgotten Vietnam. The Russians haven't forgotten Afghanistan. One year after the Maidan fiasco the populations in the whole of historical Novorossia are shifting their allegiance, bye and bye they are beginning to wish their borders changed.

Fort Russ: Oleg Tsarev: The last battle of Ukrainian oligarchs | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The country is crumbling. People are fleeing the country, seeking shelter around the world. Only in Russia there are nearly a million refugees. The country is terminally ill. Thousands of wounded, mutilated and killed. Gradually, the country is sliding into default. It is still alive, but an anticipation of a great disaster is in the air.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

This is yet another demonstration of the purity of the Ukrainian democracy that the US and the EU are so adamant to support to the finish. 

They won't avoid something big. Something big will happen in the Ukraine they laboured, and then they will wash their dirty hands by faking a new narrative, and the media clergy will switch off, after blaming Putin of course!

 4 Numbers That Prove America Is a Deeply Messed Up Place :  By Paul Buchheit

Enrique Ferro's insight:

There's something perversely wrong with a society that creates $30 trillion in new wealth while putting six million more children on food stamps.

The mainstream media rarely publishes facts like this. The super-rich keep building up their own numbers, as quietly as possible. And our leading members of Congress have little need for numbers, except for budget cuts and the strings of zeros at the end of their campaign contributions.

Эксперт: Для реабилитации отношений между Россией и США нужны глубокие изменения | Global politics | Scoop.it
В отношениях между Москвой и Вашингтоном настало время для «нового реализма» и представлений о безопасности, основанных на понимании общих интересов. Такое мнение выразил президент американского Института глобальной безопасности Джонатан Грэнофф. По его словам, украинский кризис стал серьёзным предупреждением: две страны не могут позволить разногласиям перечеркнуть важность совместной работы над общими вызовами. Кроме того, учёный выразил озабоченность прекращением военного сотрудничества между

Накануне ночью в Москве на территории Новодевичьего монастыря произошёл пожар — загорелись леса, установленные вокруг монастырской колокольни. После полуночи огонь, который охватил площадь 300 квадратных метров, был полностью ликвидирован. Между тем пользователи социальных сетей в первые минуты инцидента сообщили, что в российской столице полыхает Кремль. Британские СМИ вскоре выступили с опровержением этих сообщений.
