Moving sands Sep. 20th, 2014 @ 10:49 pm
One of the most persistent cliches about the Middle East is that it's a swamp (or rather, a desert of moving sands) where, the more you try to get out, the more stuck you get. This notion may be buzzing inside the head of president Obama too, and giving sleepless nights to his retinue of advisors and smart-heads at the White House, now that the US has started gathering a Coalition of the Willing again, and bracing themselves for another military adventure in Iraq's sands.

U.S. seeking to split EU, Russia economically - Lavrov
The United States is seeking to take advantage of the crisis in Ukraine to break economic ties between the European Union and Russia and impose supplies of its natural gas on Europe at prices significantly higher than the Russian ones, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

As one-sided as the Russian position in this conflict may be (and quite understandably, at that), Lavrov does have one point. It's to be expected that the US would be seeking to marginalize Russia, and sustain the monopolar world that would suit their interests best. But let me add one more point, which almost everyone seems to be bypassing. In the meantime, in result of all this geopolitical struggle, one emerging superpower is silently biding its time: China.

The anti-Russia sanctions only suit America's interests...

Putin ain't no Superman Sep. 3rd, 2014 @ 11:52 pm
A recent exchange around here made me thinking. Apparently, there's this impression that in the West (particularly among some segments of the US public), Putin is being viewed as "The Man", a powerful man who could "kick your elephant's ass in a fight" kind of badass boss.

Well, that "The Man" thing is a result of his personality cult-building effort, no doubt. Curiously, it seems to be having an effect even on the presumably critically-thinking, free Western public. Or at least on that segment thereof, whose narrative so desperately needs a foreign strongman to juxtapose the "lame" Obama against.

Btw, Putin's KGB past was anything but glorious...

The other side of Un-truth Aug. 20th, 2014 @ 03:25 pm
We've all heard of Putin's propaganda machine, the mighty RT, Pravda and the rest. It's all true, Russia is trying very hard to swing hearts and minds into its direction, and for a reason. "The first casualty of war is truth", as Aeschylus famously said.

Meanwhile, there's the other side of Un-truth, our very own Western brand of disinformation. Our media have been preaching to the choir pretty hard, and brainwashing us into supporting the particular agenda of our particular leaders. Here are some examples, as GlobalResearch summarizes.

Examples of blatant, delicious un-truths at our side of reality...
