Exclusive Fort Russ interview with Mateusz Piskorski | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Polish politicians are under the ideological sway and profit from the money of the Polish-American organization "Polonia", which as always been an active Russophobic, CIA-inspired, and extreme-right wing entity, something like the Cuban groups in Miami.

Is This War World III?

Is This War World III? | Global politics | Scoop.it
There are 60 million refugees in the world, the same number as were refugees at the end of WW II.  On October 31 in an unprecedented joint warning, the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Peter Maurer, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross called for "states to stop conflicts, respect international law and aid refugees." Criticizing the global response to the refugee crisis, Ban Ki-moon said, "In the face of blatant inhumanity, the world has responded with distur
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Unfortunately, the U.S. bears the most responsibility for the current crises as the "greatest purveyor of violence in the world" – as true today as when Martin Luther King said it in 1967.  At the same time, U.S. peace organizations are all struggling to raise needed funds to continue our efforts – marginalized though we are.  This is a substantial problem that needs to be resolved.  To solve these crises we need to bring the wars to a close.

Sheldon Wolin and Inverted Totalitarianism: Chris Hedges | Global politics | Scoop.it
America’s most important contemporary political theorist, who died Oct. 21, warned that militarists and corporate capitalists, obsessed with creating a global empire, would extinguish our democracy. We should have heeded his warning.

En direct de Crimée, par Slavisa Pavlovic | Global politics | Scoop.it
Nous savons tous ce qu’il en est de la Crimée, mais ce reportage d’un journaliste serbe explique, par les réactions qu’il a provoquées, les raisons pour lesquelles très rares sont les journalistes occidentaux à rendre compte de la situation.

Habitués à obéir en se taisant…, par Manlio Dinucci

Habitués à obéir en se taisant…, par Manlio Dinucci | Global politics | Scoop.it
Les Européens ont tort de se rejeter la responsabilité des guerres actuelles. Elles sont toutes le fait de l’Otan à laquelle ils collaborent tous. Ils sont donc tous responsables de ces crimes, même si les deux seules puissances décisionnaires de l’Alliance atlantique sont les États-Unis et accessoirement le Royaume-Uni.

Le 27 octobre 2015, un Tupolev 142 a multiplié des approches du porte-avions USS Ronald Reagan qui effectuait avec la 7ème flotte et la marine sud-coréenne des manœuvres à l’Est de la péninsule.
Depuis avril 2014, l’aviation russe a engagé plusieurs actions pour tester son système de brouillage des communications et des commandes de l’Otan .
Cette fois-ci, la marine états-unienne a fait décoller plusieurs de ses avions avant que l’aéronef russe ne brouille les communications et commandes US, de

How Putin Is Getting the Better of the West - WhoWhatWhy

How Putin Is Getting the Better of the West - WhoWhatWhy | Global politics | Scoop.it
Putin is showing the West how to play a weak hand very, very well.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

One of the early effects of the Russian psychological operation has been to force into the open previously secret American operations in Syria, as well as the fact that much of the Syrian uprising has been taken over by extremists.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Ukrainians, and particularly Ukrainian kids, would much better off if their politicians stopped their Russophobia and Ukraine became again a state in brotherhood with Russia, instead of expecting anything from the NATO states. So far they only got misery, rejection, oppression, and war.

A new book reveals the horrifying, and fascinating, details of daily life under Isis

A new book reveals the horrifying, and fascinating, details of daily life under Isis | Global politics | Scoop.it
Before Obama’s few dozen brave Spartans put their little bootees on the soil of the tiny bit of Syria that the Kurds hold, not far from Qamishli, they should learn a bit about Isis from the work of a Syrian historian. They would find that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Isis “caliph” is not only a keen football fan but in his youth created a soccer team for mosque regulars and even joked that he was Iraq’s Maradona.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

In the 18th century, Mohamed Abdul-Wahab and Muhammad ibn Saud – whose family now rules Saudi Arabia – went on head-chopping expeditions to extend their purest rule over Arab lands. Al-Saud’s historian, Uthman bin Bashir al-Najadi, wrote after 5,000 Shia Muslims were butchered in 1801: “We took Karbala and we slaughtered… With the permission of Allah, we will not apologise for what we have done and we tell all kafir [unbelievers] ‘You will receive similar treatment’.”

Les valeurs occidentales, dernier conte de fées, par Miroslav Lazanski

Les valeurs occidentales, dernier conte de fées, par Miroslav Lazanski | Global politics | Scoop.it
Les États-Unis mènent aujourd’hui une guerre contre des valeurs pour lesquelles ils se battaient jadis.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

En ce qui concerne les Russes, ils ont renoncé à l’empire soviétique, sans avoir tiré une seule balle. Avec le démantèlement de l’URSS, environ 25 millions de Russes ethniques sont restés en dehors des frontières de la Russie. La totalité de l’armement conventionnel de l’armée soviétique, en dehors des frontières russes, est restée dans les nouveaux États, les ex-républiques soviétiques. Boris Eltsine a naïvement cru que personne n’essaierait de profiter de la faiblesse de la Russie. Il a imaginé que la Russie et l’Occident étaient des amis et des partenaires.

Coup d'État au Portugal

Coup d'État au Portugal | Global politics | Scoop.it
Le président du Portugal, Anibal Cavaco Silva, a rejeté le gouvernement de coalition formé avec le soutien de la nouvelle majorité parlementaire, au motif qu’il comprend des personnalités du Bloc de gauche et des communistes.
« En 40 ans de démocratie, aucun gouvernement au Portugal n’a jamais dépendu de l’appui des forces anti-européennes, à savoir les forces qui ont fait campagne pour abroger le Traité de Lisbonne, le Pacte budgétaire, le Pacte de croissance et de stabilité, ainsi que de déman
