L’arme de l’information « Made in USA » contre les dirigeants européens, par Georgy Voskresensky

L’arme de l’information « Made in USA » contre les dirigeants européens, par Georgy Voskresensky | Global politics | Scoop.it
L’Europe est, paraît-il, un modèle de liberté. Pourtant, ses dirigeants sont tenus en laisse par Washington. Toute voix discordante est vite sanctionnée et priée de se remettre au pas. La plupart du temps les choses se font à l’abri des regards. Parfois, le grand frère états-unien est « contraint » au contraire de prendre les opinions publiques à témoin. Georgy Voskresensky nous rappelle les derniers (...)
Enrique Ferro's insight:

 Juste après sa rencontre avec Angela Merkel, le président Obama a expliqué lors d’une interview à Vox.com, que les États-Unis étaient obligés d’avoir « la plus puissante armée du monde. » Et il a ajouté « nous devons parfois tordre un peu le bras de certains pays qui ne veulent pas faire ce qu’on leur demande. » [4]. La brutalité de cette déclaration ne laisse aucun doute sur le fait que les États-Unis sont prêts à « tordre le bras » de n’importe quel allié qui n’aurait pas les mêmes vues qu’eux sur les différents problèmes dans le monde.

More money, more problems?

More money, more problems? | Global politics | Scoop.it
BBC Global News Ltd, the commercial arm of the BBC) with no official financing coming from either the US or the UK governments; however, one would be hard-pressed to find a single international news report on either channel that strays from the official line of the State Department or the Foreign Office. As such, CNN and BBC are de-facto soft-power extensions of the American and British governments, where foreign policy is concerned.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

To sum up: on the one hand you have the BBC, CNN, Euronews, France24, Deutsche Welle, Al Jazeera America and the BBG’s Voice of America and Radio Europe all beaming their strikingly similar points of view on current events to a likely combined price tag of several billion dollars; on the other hand you have RT “winning the information war” at a fraction of that sum.

ISIS have fetish for kinky underwear, Viagra, and ‘abnormal sex’ – report

ISIS have fetish for kinky underwear, Viagra, and ‘abnormal sex’ – report | Global politics | Scoop.it
“Perverted” ISIS fighters in the Syrian stronghold of Raqqa indulge in “brutal and abnormal” sexual practices, in sharp contrast with the austere religious image they try to project, claims a new report compiled by local activist journalists.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

That they are psychopatic perverts is nothing new, they persist and sign with their sadist videos, and certainly their all-powerful oppression over women is only logical considering their unrestraint male power and savage pseudo-religious rule. This is a shame for humanity, and the fact of their claming a religion is even worse.

‘Beyond diplomatic ethics’: Moscow rejects UK comment that Russia is threat to Baltics

‘Beyond diplomatic ethics’: Moscow rejects UK comment that Russia is threat to Baltics | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russian President Vladimir Putin may seek to destabilize the Baltic States of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has warned. Moscow labeled his statements "unacceptable."
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The real danger to the Baltic states is themselves, and their pathological Russophobia, while their economy and commerce depends on Russia, as they do not produce anything of interest for the EC and their gas comes from Russia. They cannot even boast of tourism, because the bulk of Western tourism prefer to visit Peter, and the Russian tourists (a main source of income) are tired of so much enmity and start to travel to Crimea rather!

OpEdNews Article: Article: EU Reeling Between US and Russia

OpEdNews Article: Article: EU Reeling Between US and Russia | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Empire of Chaos does not want a lasting agreement on Ukraine -- and will do everything to torpedo Minsk 2.0. NATO's strategic imperative remains clear; force Moscow into a war in Ukraine to exhaust it economically, prevent a EU-Russia economic/trade partnership, and eliminate Russia as a global competitor to the US.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The $17 billion IMF loan that was miraculously produced on the eve of Minsk 2.0 not only allows the oligarchs in Kiev to keep prosecuting -- by proxy -- an Empire of Chaos war against Russia. It came with a key conditionality; Ukraine must imperatively be ravaged by hardcore biotech farming. And what a fabulous agricultural prize; Ukraine is the world's third largest exporter of corn, the fifth largest exporter of wheat, with a deep, rich, black soil where anything, literally, can grow. The winners, predictably, will be the usual corporate GMO suspects -- from seed producers Monsanto and Dupont to farm equipment dealer, Deere.

​Expectations and reality: What Maidan gave Ukraine's economy

​Expectations and reality: What Maidan gave Ukraine's economy | Global politics | Scoop.it
The major expectation of the Maidan protest a year ago was replacing the burden of corruption and mismanagement of the economy with the benefits of EU integration. The reality brought collapse and a debt trap.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Yatseniuk seized power by means of a US-made coup, as his hidden agenda of selling off the country to foreign military and finances couldn't be offered to the Ukrainian voters when he was portraying himself as an ultranationalist. Well perhaps he is, but only as far as ethnically cleansing the Russian and Russian-speaking areas to impose a Ukrainian monolingualism and ethnicity.

Brokering power: US role in Ukraine coup hard to overlook

Brokering power: US role in Ukraine coup hard to overlook | Global politics | Scoop.it
After months of denying having a hand in the Ukrainian coupe, US President Barack Obama admitted playing power broker for the “transition.” This probably falls short of America’s actual involvement.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

It is true that $5 billion of taxpayers’ money is a lot of money, even throughout 25 years. Especially because private donors' (like Soros) money should be added. Americans never give money out for nothing, they seek a return.  They are the most consistent businessmen in the world, aren't they? So what was their interest? Everybody should know: expansion of their military order, especially under the NATO cover. And the pearl of the crown, Crimea.

Now you know why they are furious, because the Russians were faster. After all, Crimea has been a Russian land for a long time, and too much Russian blood was spilled there: against slave traffic, in the 1850s against a Western expedition, and in the 1940s against Hitler's invasion. And should they stand passive when the US is attempting to snatch it taking advantage of a "gift" made in 1954, under Soviet conditions?

‘Stick to Minsk deal’: Russia slams Ukraine idea for EU peacekeepers

‘Stick to Minsk deal’: Russia slams Ukraine idea for EU peacekeepers | Global politics | Scoop.it
Moscow criticized Kiev's plan to invite an EU police force under the EU’s aegis for a peacekeeping mission in war-torn eastern Ukraine, saying the move would undermine the Minsk ceasefire agreement.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

So the Junta is bringing NATO under the cover of a EU cap. Interesting, they lose the war, they sign a ceasefire to save their açs, and now they want to bring NATO in. I hope the EU understands the risk they would put their servicemen under and the danger of a direct fight against Novorossia and even  Russia. And I hope the decision is taken by the elected politicians and not by the top bureaucrat Donald Tusk, who apparently doesn't listen to the Member states but speaks for himself (and the US).
