On the Question of Imperialism

Is Russia Imperialist? There is much confusion as to the nature of imperialism. Many analysts contend that there is only one form of imperialism in the world today, namely NATO and that countries such as Russia and China are the leaders of a global anti-imperialist front, resisting domination by the Western corporate elite. However, such as theory does not stand up to scrutiny. In his book Imperialism: the Highest Stage of Capitalism, Vladimir Lenin defined imperialism as monopoly capitalism. He writes: If it were necessary to give the briefest possible definition of imperialism we should have to say that imperialism is the monopoly stage of capitalism. Such a definition would include what is most important, for, on the one hand, finance capital is the bank capital of a few very big monopolist banks, merged with the capital of the monopolist associations of industrialists; and, on the other hand, the […] Read More

TIME Admits ISIS Bringing Arms, Fighters in From NATO Territory

By Tony Cartalucci Late last year, Germany’s broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) investigated what turned out to be hundreds of trucks per day carrying billions of dollars in supplies, flowing across the Turkish border into Syria and directly into the hands of the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS). The border crossing near the Turkish city of Oncupinar, approximately 100km west of the Syrian city of Kobani is apparently only one of many such crossings where ISIS fighters, weapons, and materiel move directly under the watch and apparent assistance of NATO. TIME in their recent article titled, “ISIS Fighters Kill 200 Civilians in Syrian Town,” reported that: The attacks also came after the group [ISIS] suffered a series of setbacks over the past two weeks, including the loss last week of the Syrian border town of Tal Abyad — one of the group’s main points for bringing in foreign fighters and supplies.

ISIS’ Bloody Footprints Lead From NATO Territory

Tony Cartalucci Activist Post It was reported recently that Germany’s broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) investigated what turned out to be hundreds of trucks a day carrying billions of dollars in supplies, flowing into Syria and directly into the hands of the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS). Turkey, a NATO member since 1952, has played a pivotal role in the destabilization and destruction of neighboring Syria. Since 2011, Turkey has allowed its territory to be used as a transit and staging point for sectarian terrorists flowing from around the world and into Syria in what could be described as a de facto NATO invasion by proxy. In 2011, after the Libyan conflict drew to an end in favor of NATO, terrorists it had armed and provided air cover for in North Africa were promptly shipped to Turkey where they then slipped into Syria to engage the Syrian government and its military.

PSYCHOLOGICAL OPERATIONS IN GUERRILLA WARFARE

by  Tayac n  : A tactical manual for the revolutionary that was published by the Central Intelligence  Agency and distributed to the Contras in  Central America. : : Combat Arms urges gun owners in the United States to become very familiar with the contents of this manual and to discuss it among your family and friends. Liberty knows no peace. : PREFACE Guerrilla warfare is essentially a political war. Therefore, its area of operations exceeds the territorial limits of conventional warfare, to penetrate the political entity itself: the “political animal” that Aristotle defined. In effect,the human being should be considered the priority objective in a political war. And conceived as the military target of guerrilla war, the human being has his most critical point in his mind. Once his mind has been reached, the”political animal” has been defeated, without necessarily receiving bullets. Guerrilla warfare is born and grows in the political environment; in the constant combat […] Read More

(AFP Photo / Noorullah Shirzada) Five civilians, three of whom were children, were killed in an overnight airstrike in eastern Afghanistan, local police said on Saturday.

2013: U.S. Arctic Ambitions and the Militarization of the High North

By Dana Gabriel Canada recently took over the leadership of the Arctic Council and will be succeeded by the U.S. in 2015. With back-to-back chairmanships, it gives both countries an opportunity to increase cooperation on initiatives that could enhance the development of a shared North American vision for the Arctic. The U.S. has significant geopolitical and economic interests in the high north and have released a new national strategy which seeks to advance their Arctic ambitions. While the region has thus far been peaceful, stable and free of conflict, there is a danger of the militarization of the Arctic. It has the potential to become a front whereby the U.S. and other NATO members are pitted against Russia or even China. In an effort to prevent any misunderstandings, there are calls for the Arctic Council to move beyond environmental issues and become a forum to address defense and security […] Read More

2013: The Earth vs. The Nazi Flying Saucers – Moon Bases, Space Wars and the Moon Hoax

By Olav Phillips Many years ago I was introduced to the amazing videos of Ed Grimsley, who at the time was discussing the idea that UFOs were engaging in some level of extra-atmospheric combat.  At the time I dismissed the idea, thinking if a alien ship had come all this way that alien ship would posses enough destructive power to render our defensive apparatus null and void and simply blow anything we could throw at it out of the sky. Now many years later, and especially given recent research into the Secret Space Program as well as the actual composition of battle platforms in space that maybe Grimsley was on to something.  He was on to something but I suspect it was not aliens duking it out with earthmen but instead a space war between a breakaway civilization and its earthly brethren. There are a couple of alternatives here.  […] Read More

2011: Visegrad: A New European Military Force

Created May 17 2011 – 03:59 By George Friedman With the Palestinians demonstrating and the International Monetary Fund in turmoil, it would seem odd to focus this week on something called the Visegrad Group. But this is not a frivolous choice. What the Visegrad Group decided to do last week will, I think, resonate for years, long after the alleged attempted rape by Dominique Strauss-Kahn is forgotten and long before the Israeli-Palestinian issue is resolved. The obscurity of the decision to most people outside the region should not be allowed to obscure its importance. The region is Europe — more precisely, the states that had been dominated by the Soviet Union. The Visegrad Group, or V4, consists of four countries — Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary — and is named after two 14th century meetings held in Visegrad Castle in present-day Hungary of leaders of the medieval kingdoms of […] Read More
