Op-Ed: Pipelineistan and Turkey: The Geo-Political Realities behind Resource Rivalry and the Looming Climate Catastrophe

In the 21st century, humanity has suddenly come face to face with the stupendous power of nature again. In the latter part of the previous century warnings regarding man-made or anthropogenic climate change started being voiced – arguably commencing in earnest with Professor Hansen’s testimony in front of the U.S.

Senate during the summer of 1988. These dire words of caution arguably culminated in Al Gore’s sensational and “inconvenient” 2006 film. An Urgently Necessary Briefing on Syria. 1.

An Urgently Necessary Briefing on Syria

Syria is country about the size of Washington state, with an extraordinarily long, well-documented and glorious history, and central role in the emergence of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Before the current war, it had a population of around 22 millions. It has never threatened and poses no threat to the United States. It is a secular, constitutional republic recognized diplomatically by the United Nations and has diplomatic and usually cordial relations with Russia, Iran, China, India, Japan, Brazil, South Africa, the Philippines, Argentina, Tanzania, Cuba, Egypt, Iraq, Algeria, Oman, etc. Barrel Breakdown.

What dots, one might ask? US Treachery Explodes Terror Proxies. In the last week, a wave of deadly bombings connected to al-Qaeda-linked extremists – from Bangladesh to Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia – has resulted in over 200 deaths.

US Treachery Explodes Terror Proxies

The latest violence attributed to the radical Wahhabi terrorists saw suicide attacks in three Saudi cities on Monday, including Medina and Jeddah, where the target in the latter place was the US consulate building. It seems no coincidence that the upsurge in international terror assaults, which has inflicted American deaths among the victims, followed quickly on reports that the Obama administration is moving to do a deal with Russia over Syria.

The Washington Post reported last week: “The Obama administration has proposed a new agreement on Syria to the Russian government that would deepen military cooperation between the two countries against some [sic] terrorists in exchange for Russia getting the Assad regime to stop bombing US-supported rebels.” On The Trail Of Dubai's Stolen Gold: A Robbed Client Breaks The Silence, And A Fascinating Detail Emerges. On Christmas Day, 2015, we told our readers the fascinating tale about the Turkish-Iranian gold smuggling ring - perhaps the biggest and most brazen in history, one which lasted for years, which saw billions in gold transported out of Turkey and into Iran to allow Tehran to circumvent the western financial sanctions using gold as a medium for bater, and which was all made possible thanks to the tiny Emirate of Dubai.

Que deviendra le Proche-Orient après l'accord entre Washington et Téhéran ?, par Thierry Meyssan. Que peuvent bien se dire John Kerry et Mohammad Javad Zarif ?

Les projets de réorganisation du « Moyen-Orient élargi », par Thierry Meyssan. Voici quatre ans que les États occidentaux ont lancé une vaste opération de remodelage du « Moyen-Orient élargi » qui devait placer au pouvoir, partout dans le monde arabe, la Confrérie des Frères musulmans.

Ce fut d’abord le renvoi par les seuls États-Unis de Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali de Tunisie et d’Hosni Moubarak d’Égypte, tandis que l’on faisait croire aux populations qu’elles venaient de renverser ces dictateurs. Puis, ce fut les guerres d’agression contre la Libye et la Syrie, toutes deux travesties en soutien à des « révolutions démocratiques », alors qu’elles s’appuyaient sur al-Qaïda. Cependant, depuis deux ans, force est de constater que ce dispositif a atteint sa limite et qu’il ne sera pas possible d’imposer par la force un changement de régime en Syrie. Pourtant la guerre continue, extrêmement meurtrière. Mises Institute. What Does Putin Want? Who Shall Rule The World.
