When Russia Ruled Alaska: Marking 148 Years of Historic Property Deal





While many Russians once lamented Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev's decision to give the Crimean peninsula to his native Ukraine in 1954, it wasn't the first time Russia parted with prime real estate: exactly 148 years ago Alaska became a territory of the US; some myths regarding the sale still remain.

DoD Concerned Over Crimea, but Declines to Comment on Black Sea Operations!




The US Department of Defense is concerned by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s remarks on nuclear forces readiness regarding Crimea, but will not make public the future US operations in the Black Sea, US Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Brian McKeon told Sputnik.


WASHINGTON — In recent months, the United States and its NATO allies have participated in numerous military exercises in the Black Sea. Earlier in March 2015, NATO Allied Marine Command concluded training exercises in the Black Sea with the Romanian Navy.
Moscow has warned that the increased military presence in the Black Sea, which is close to a regional conflict zone in Ukraine, is dangerous, and runs contrary to Washington’s stance on peaceful resolution of the Ukrainian crisis.

How Will The Yemeni Civil War End?




The Civil War in Yemen is rapidly expanding. We have been forced to close our embassy and military base located there. It is now clear that Obama’s optimism for fighting terrorism in Yemen was misplaced. It hardly sets a standard for dealing with constant conflict and chaos throughout the Middle East. It now looks like the two major participants in this war are Iran and Saudi Arabia. In this region there has been competition between these two nations for hundreds if not thousands of years. The conflict ongoing in Yemen relates to the age-old conflict between Shia and Sunni Muslims. It also reflects the contest over who will control the oil in this region. Not only is there a conflict between the Shia of Iran versus the Sunnis of Saudi Arabia, there has been long-term animosity between Arabs and Persians.

We live in a state of military alert



Rostislav Ishchenko
Translated from the Russian by Robin
For the second year in a row, almost uninterrupted military exercises are taking place in Russia. The number of troops involved is comparable to or even greater than the number of participants in the largest exercise held by the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact military alliance – even though the Soviet armed forces totaled 3.5 million in 1991 and today the Russian Federation’s armed forces barely number 1.5 million.

The War on Yugoslavia: The Real Face of American ‘Diplomacy’ (Uncle Sam’s Sins)





The 16th anniversary of NATO’s War on Yugoslavia gives cause to reflect on what American ‘diplomacy’ is really all about.

The US has long trumpeted itself as the only paragon of virtue and ‘defender of freedom’ in the world, going into overdrive with this message in the years following the Cold War. Millions of people were duped during this time, but their illusions were quickly dispelled after the 1999 War on Yugoslavia.

This tragedy exposed the true face of American ‘diplomacy’ as a duplicitous front for pursuing predetermined geopolitical ends. The war wasn’t so much about a ‘humanitarian intervention’ (the reality surrounding which was grossly exaggerated by the Western media) as it was the establishment of a pro-Western proxy state in the heart of the Southern Balkans.

George Zimmerman: Killing Trayvon Martin Fulfilled ‘God’s Plan





After being acquitted of civil rights charges in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman - who has turned down most requests for interviews - told his divorce attorney that Martin died because of “God’s will,” and wishing he hadn’t is “almost blasphemous.”
The former neighborhood watchman shot and killed unarmed African-American teen Trayvon Martin in February 2012, setting off a nationwide wave of protests demanding Zimmerman be arrested. He was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter in 2013, and in 2014 the Department of Justice declined to prosecute him for a federal hate crime charge.

CIA Director Mad That Iranian General Fights Against ISIL in Iraq




As many in the West call on regional actors to take a leading role in combating the influence of the self-proclaimed Islamic State, none have responded quite as efficiently as Iran. But CIA Director John Brennan worries that one Iranian general, lauded by Iraqis, poses a significant threat to US counterterrorism efforts.
The terrorist attacks in Yemen and Syria last week, which the Islamic State took credit for, served as a reminder of just how necessary it is for the world to eradicate the terrorist group. Weary of becoming embroiled in another expensive war in the Middle East, the United States has instead called on regional leaders to take action.

Ron Paul: We Need to March Our Troops Home





As the US continues to suffer the consequences of military forays into the Middle East – campaigns based largely on faulty intelligence – former presidential candidate Ron Paul has a sobering suggestion: maybe it’s time for America to be content, and let its troops march home.
"Twelve years ago last week, the US launched its invasion of Iraq," Paul begins, writing his latest article for the Ron Paul Institute. And it has, indeed, been twelve excruciating years since coalition forces launched their “shock and awe” attack against Saddam Hussein’s government.

"Before the attack I was accused of exaggerating the potential costs of the war when I warned that it could end up costing as much as $100 billion," Paul writes. Despite that criticism, Paul may have even been lowballing the total cost. Last March, Reuters estimated that the war continues to cost in excess of $1.7 trillion. And that’s not including the War in Afghanistan.

How many armies does Europe need?





by Rostislav Ishchenko, president of the Center of System Analysis and Forecasting

Translated by Aleksey

Against the backdrop of a decision by the IMF to loan Ukraine 17.5 billion over a span of four years’ time (it is still a trick to receive these funds – the previous bailout, agreed in 2014, has not been fully received) the talk of a creation of a European armed forces has been lost from conversation.

This is in vain, the overriding theme being that perhaps we are on the threshold of a new military configuration capable of, in the future, changing the geopolitical map of the Old World.

GMO Mosquitoes May Have Unintended Consequences, Scientists Warn



Researchers have developed a new technique to genetically alter insects that promises to eradicate many mosquito-born diseases within a few years. But scientists warn the move could unleash disastrous unintended consequences for the environment.

The method — known as mutagenic chain reaction, or MCR — works by bypassing a key barrier to the rapid spread of genes within an insect population, ensuring that almost all offspring born of a genetically modified parent will have the ability to pass along a mutated gene — in this case, one that makes a mosquito resistant to malaria and incapable of passing the disease to humans.

Western Connection in the Assassination of Serbia’s Prime Minister Djindjic




by Nikola Vrzic
Several days ago, on March 12th, Serbia marked another – twelfth – anniversary of the assassination of Serbia’s prime minister Zoran Djindjic. The official narrative of Djindjic, as a reformer who was killed by criminals and Serbian nationalists, this year was confronted with evidence revealing the story as much more complex, with a strong presence of Western, primarily British and US secret services…
