În timpul unei vizite în Grecia, destinat să repare relațiile cu UE , Vladimir Putin a declarat că Rusia nu are " nici o alegere ", ca să vizeze România , care și-a deschis recent o bază de apărare antirachetă al NATO , și Polonia , care intenționează să facă acest lucru în termen de doi ani .

"Daca ieri oamenii pur și simplu nu știau ce înseamnă a fi în vizoarele din acele zone ale României, atunci astăzi noi vom fi obligați să luam anumite măsuri pentru a ne asigura securitatea. Și va fi acelasi lucru cu Polonia ", a declarat Putin în cadrul unei conferințe de presă susținută împreună cu Premierul Grec Alexis Tsipras la Atena vineri.

Presedintele Rus sa referit la facilitatea Deveselu care a devenit oficial operațională în Mai, după aproape un deceniu și 800 milioane $ de planificare și de construcție.
 "Pîna în prezent, interceptorul de rachete instalate are o rază de 500 de kilometri, în curând acest lucru va ajunge până la 1000 de kilometri, și mai rău decât atât, ele pot fi reînarmate cu 2,400 km rază de rachete ofensive chiar și astăzi, și se poate face prin simpla comutare a software-ului, astfel încât pîna și românii ei înșiși nu vor ști de acest lucru", a declarat Putin, care se afla în Grecia pentru un tur de două zile : 
"Noi avem capacitatea de a răspunde . Întreaga lume stie raza-medie a rachetelor noastre bazate pe mare de care sunt capabile [ în Siria ] . Însa noi nu violam nici un acord . Iar rachetele noastre bazate la-sol Iskander s- au dovedit , de asemenea, superbe ", a continuat Putin .

Conducerea politică și militară a Rusiei este în frunte a spus în mod repetat, împotriva scutului de apărare antirachetă, de cînd a fost propusă în timpul administrației lui George W. Bush, și Putin a reiterat faptul că Moscova nu crede ca partea europeană a acesteia, este îndreptată catre un potențial amenintator ca al Iranului.

"NATO ne înlatura cu afirmații vagi că aceasta nu este o amenințare pentru Rusia ... Că întregul proiect a început ca o măsură preventivă împotriva programului nuclear al Iranului. Unde este acel program acum ? El nu există ", a declarat Putin, referindu-se la tratatul nuclear care a fost încheiat între principalele puteri ale lumii și Teheran, anul trecut. " Noi am spus încă de la începutul anilor 2000, ca va trebui să reacționam într-un fel la mișcările voastre pentru a submina securitatea internațională. Nimeni nu ne-a ascultat. "

Alexis Tsipras la rândul său, a reiterat faptul că Rusia este un jucător în teatrul european de securitate și că încercările actuale de a înstrăina Moscova cu măsuri, cum ar fi sancțiunile, îi amintește timpurile Război-ului Rece .

"Securitatea europeană nu poate fi realizată fără o cooperare și dialog cu Rusia ", a declarat Tsipras într-un interviu cu Sputnik . " Nu cred că putem merge mai departe sau să asiguram respectarea dreptului internațional, în timp ce este prins într -un cerc vicios al sancțiunilor, militarizare și retorica Războiului Rece. "
Președintele Putin a sosit în Grecia, Vineri, pentru o vizită de două zile, care implică întâlniri cu omologul său grec , Prokopis Pavlopoulos , Prim-Ministru-l Alexis Tsipras, și alte discuții de nivel superior.

Este prima călătorie în EU a președintelui Rus în șapte luni, și vine doar cu câteva săptămâni înainte de Bruxelles sa decida dacă va extinde sancțiunile UE împotriva Rusiei.

Comerțul bilateral și investițiile, precum și proiectele energetice și de transport în comun, au declarat a fi probleme majore de pe ordinea de zi a vizitei. O altă problemă de presare atât pentru Atena cît și pentru Moscova, sancțiunile economice împotriva Rusiei, vor fi de asemenea, pe masă. Primul- Ministru Tsipras a declarat deja pentru RIA Novosti că restricțiile au avut un impact negativ asupra relațiilor economice Ruso- Grecesti, dar a adăugat că acestea sunt zone care nu sunt acoperite de sancțiuni în cazul în care afacerile între cele două țări vor putea fi efectuate bine.

Premierul Grec a pus o bază de încredere cu liderul Rus și chiar a propus un regim de călătorie fără vize în UE pentru cetățenii ruși.

" Am depășit toate dificultățile care au apărut din cauza schimbărilor în eliberarea vizelor Schengen, a consolidat activitatea consulatelor noastre în Rusia prin atragerea de zeci de angajați noi, și suntem pregătiți pentru a satisface cererea mare de cetățeni ruși pentru a călători în Grecia. În același timp, consider că este necesar, așa cum am menționat deja la un nivel european, că dialogul este relansat privind relaxarea regimului de vize pentru cetățenii ruși ", a spus Tsipras.

Promovarea securității internaționale și combaterea migrației ilegale, care este o problema fierbinte în Grecia, sunt de asemenea, puncte de interes reciproc.

Sâmbătă, Președintele Putin va participa la un serviciu de rugăciune la Muntele Athos, care găzduiește 20 de mănăstiri și este un site spiritual important pentru crestinii ortodocsi. Alaturi de Patriarhul Kirill, liderul Bisericii Ortodoxe Ruse, președintele este așteptat să ia parte la festivitățile milenare ale prezenței monahale Ruse în Athos .

Paul Craig Roberts -- There Has Been A Coup In Brazil

There Has Been A Coup In Brazil — Paul Craig Roberts



There Has Been A Coup In Brazil
Paul Craig Roberts

In Brazil the country’s largest newspaper has published a transcript of a secret recording leaked to the newspaper. The words recorded are the plot by the rich Brazilian elite, involving both the US-corrupted Brazilian military and Supreme Court, to remove the democratically elected president of Brazil under false charges in order to stop the investigations of the corrupt elites who inhabit Brazil’s senate and bring to an end Brazil’s membership in BRICS. The Russian-Chinese attempt to organize an economic bloc independent of Washington has now lost 20% of its membership.

Democracy has been overthrown in Brazil as in Ukraine, Honduras—indeed, everywhere the dirty evil hand of Washington falls, including the US itself.

Glenn Greenwald reports on the extraordinary leak of the 75-minute recording of the conversations between Brazilian elites laying out the plot to frame the President of Brazil in order to protect themselves. https://theintercept.com/2016/05/23/new-political-earthquake-in-brazil-is-it-now-time-for-media-outlets-to-call-this-a-coup/

The Government of President Dilma Rousseff was dealing with the corrupt Brazilian elite in a legal, not a revolutionary, way. This was a strategic error, as neither the Brazilian elites nor their backers in Washington care a hoot about legality. For them power is the only effective force.

They used their power to remove Rousseff from the presidency, demonstrating to Brazilians that their votes are powerless to determine the government.

The world has seen this so many times. That is why the French Revolution, Marx, Lenin, and Pol Pot concluded that change was impossible unless the elites were exterminated.

In Latin America the populist governments that managed against all odds to be elected bind their own hands by extending the protection of the rule of law to their bitter domestic enemies, who take advantage of the protection afforded them to use their power to overthrow the elected government.


It will ever be so. Without a Lenin, there will be no change in Latin America or anywhere in the corrupt and elite-controlled Western world. In the Western world voting is a waste of time. The election hype is nothing but cover for elite control. Electorates, always hopeful, never catch on.

Ticking Closer to Nuclear Midnight

Jonathan Marshall is author or co-author of five books on international affairs, including The Lebanese Connection: Corruption, Civil War and the International Drug Traffic (Stanford University Press, 2012). 

Even if you’ve never won an office raffle, a sports pool or a lottery, consider yourself supremely lucky. Unlike the atomic bomb victims who were recognized by President Barack Obama’s visit to Hiroshima, you’ve never experienced the horrors of nuclear war.

That’s nothing any of us should take for granted, says former Defense Secretary William Perry. On at least three occasions, he noted recently, the U.S. military received false alarms of a Soviet nuclear attack. At least twice the Soviet military went on high alert from similar alarms. And anyone who lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 survived “as much by good luck as by good management,” he added.

Sweden Dumps Neutrality, Signs Major Agreement with NATO
Press statement from Stop NATO in Norway
Global Research, May 28, 2016
Stop NATO 25 May 2016
Region: Europe

stop-alla-nato


This is a press statement from the organisation Stop NATO in Norway, regarding Sweden’s recent decision to sign a Host Country Agreement with NATO:

A sad day for Sweden. A sad day for the Nordic countries. A sad day for peace.

On May 25th Riksdagen (the Swedish National Assembly) sacrificed the Swedish neutrality policy by joining the  NATO Host Country Agreement. This happened almost without any public debate. Popular protests and 41 300 signatures have been swept aside by Riksdagen.

The Agreement makes Sweden a possible host country for aggressive NATO exercises during peacetime. In addition, the Swedish government may allow NATO to invade the country if a crisis or a conflict should occur. Inevitably, Sweden will become directly involved in NATO’s armament proliferation and their aggressive provocations against Russia. Large-scale fleet exercises in the Baltic Sea will further increase the danger of confrontation and war.

This is not only a tragedy for Sweden; it increases the arms race and the danger of war throughout Europe. The fact that Sweden has been staying out of military alliances until now, has been a stabilizing factor throughout Northern Europe. The Swedish submission to NATO may spell the end to peace in the Nordic region.

Forcing Sweden and Finland into the military alliance has been an aim for NATO and the United States for a long time. The governments of Denmark and Norway have been henchmen in this filthy game. The appointments of Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Jens Stoltenberg as Secretary Generals have been part of a strategy to coerce and bribe Sweden and Finland into joining the alliance.

Stop NATO in Norway feels obliged to alert our Swedish brothers against the consequences of becoming a slave to NATO and the United States. If the goal is safety and peaceful coexistence in the Nordic region, NATO offers the opposite. NATO has turned Norway into a front-line for US nuclear strategy and a spying central in the Arctic region. In reality, Norway has no foreign or security policy of its own. Norwegian special forces are being deployed into aggressive military operations against peoples and states that have never threatened our country – like in Afghanistan, Libya and now in Syria. Norwegian social spending is cut back while our tax money is being spent on an unrestrained build-up of offensive weapons of war, because NATO demands it.

The best way the Swedish people can contribute to peace is to defend their country’s neutrality and sovereignty until the bitter end. The best way for the Norwegian people to contribute to peace in the north is to pull Norway out of the war alliance called NATO.

During a visit to Greece intended to repair ties with the EU, Vladimir Putin said that Russia has “no choice” but to target Romania, which has recently opened a NATO missile defense base, and Poland, which plans to do so within two years.

If yesterday people simply did not know what it means to be in the crosshairs in those areas of Romania, then today we will be forced to carry out certain measures to ensure our security. And it will be the same with Poland, Putin said during a joint press conference with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in Athens on Friday.

The Russian President was referring to the Deveselu facility that officially became operational in May after nearly a decade and $800 million of planning and construction.

At the moment the interceptor missiles installed have a range of 500 kilometers, soon this will go up to 1000 kilometers, and worse than that, they can be rearmed with 2400km-range offensive missiles even today, and it can be done by simply switching the software, so that even the Romanians themselves won’t know,” said Putin, who is in Greece for a two-day tour.

May 27, 2016 "Information Clearing House" - "teleSur" -  Returning to the United States in an election year, I am struck by the silence. I have covered four presidential campaigns, starting with 1968; I was with Robert Kennedy when he was shot and I saw his assassin, preparing to kill him. It was a baptism in the American way, along with the salivating violence of the Chicago police at the Democratic Party's rigged convention. The great counter revolution had begun.

The first to be assassinated that year, Martin Luther King, had dared link the suffering of African-Americans and the people of Vietnam. When Janis Joplin sang, “Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose”, she spoke perhaps unconsciously for millions of America's victims in faraway places.

Washington Uses US Troops As Lab Rats

Washington Uses US Troops As Lab Rats



Washington Uses US Troops As Lab Rats

Alas! It is Memorial Day weekend and the obliviations about America’s just wars for freedom and democracy and our brave soldiers who gave their lives to keep us free have begun.

Civilians, not soldiers, are always the vast majority of war’s casualties. People die not for freedom and democracy but in order for armaments manufacturers to make large fortunes. General Smedley Butler said that his US Marines died for the sake of the profits of the United Fruit Company and some lousy bank investment—truth that you never hear on Memorial Day or July 4th.

I still see bumper stickers: “Support the Troops.”

I would like to see one that reads: “Damn the Government for NOT Supporting the Troops!”

Perhaps what we need is another Memorial Day commemorating the hundreds of thousands of American soldiers that the wicked and cruel government in Washington used for radiation and chemical weapons experiments.

The greatest mainstay of the official 9/11 narrative is the belief of gullible Americans that “the government wouldn’t kill its own citizens.” Oh, yeah?!

Well, gullible American watch these two 15 minute documentaries presented by Abby Martin:
Reality will enter your life.

The United States government and the small elite to whom it reports look on the rest of us as cattle. And so do the police, a government agency that kills its own citizens every day. During eight years of Washington’s war in Iraq, American police killed more Americans in their homes and on their streets that the number of US troops killed in combat.


A Memorial Day in memory of the victims of American police violence would help Americans realize that the real threat is right here in our own government, not in faraway Russia and China.

Washington’s Sanctions Against Russia Wreck Not Russia But Washington’s European Vassals

Europe Revolts Against Russian Sanctions

Europe Revolts Against Russian Sanctions

From ministerial offices to barricades on the streets, Europe is in open revolt against anti-Russian sanctions which have cost workers and businesses millions of jobs and earnings. Granted, the contentious issues are wider than anti-Russian sanctions. However, the latter are entwined with growing popular discontent across the EU.

Germany’s vice chancellor Sigmar Gabriel is among the latest high-profile politicians to have come out against the sanctions stand-off between the European Union and Russia.

Germany’s Assault On The IMF

Paul Craig Roberts


Having successfully used the EU to conquer the Greek people by turning the Greek “leftwing” government into a pawn of Germany’s banks, Germany now finds the IMF in the way of its plan to loot Greece into oblivion .

The IMF’s rules prevent the organization from lending to countries that cannot repay the loan. The IMF has concluded on the basis of facts and analysis that Greece cannot repay. Therefore, the IMF is unwilling to lend Greece the money with which to repay the private banks.

The IMF says that Greece’s creditors, many of whom are not creditors but simply bought up Greek debt at a cheap price in hopes of profiting, must write off some of the Greek debt in order to lower the debt to an amount that the Greek economy can service.

Will Russia Succumb To Washington’s Economic Attack? Paul Craig Roberts

Will Russia Succumb To Washington’s Economic Attack? — Paul Craig Roberts


Will Russia Succumb To Washington’s Economic Attack?
Paul Craig Roberts

Yesterday State Department deputy propaganda spokesperson Mark Toner reminded US companies that there are economic and reputational risks associated with doing business with Russia until Russia gives Crimea back to Washington’s puppet government in Kiev.
http://sputniknews.com/politics/20160524/1040134996/russia-us-business-sanctions.html

I see the matter differently from the US State Department.

The only risk American corporations face from doing business in Russia is from the US government. Washington will punish the US companies unless, of course, the companies are part of the corporate oligarchy which has been granted immunity to the sanctions.

The risk involved is to Russia. Here are some of the risks:

When a Russian company does business with an American one, the American firm obtains economic information about Russia which is given to the CIA.

When the Russian Central Bank sells Russian bonds, Wall Street, acting for the CIA, can purchase the bonds and then dump them at inopportune times to embarrass Russia by
driving down their price. The price decline will then become propaganda that Russia is
failing and its bonds are worthless.

When the Russian government allows the ruble to be traded in currency markets, the Russian government enables Washington to speculate against Russia’s currency and to drive down its value. The decline in the ruble is then reinforced by propaganda that the ruble is worthless.

When the Russian government permits foreign investment, Washington can have the money pulled out of Russia at inopportune times and, thereby, destabilize the Russian economy.

The Russian government should forget all about Washington’s sanctions. In fact the sanctions have helped Russia tremendously. Prior to the sanctions, Washington had Russia set up in the global economy as a Third World supplier of raw materials and dependent on foreign imports. This was Washington’s way of controlling Russia. As a result of sanctions, Russia has become more self-sufficient and focused on producing for its own needs instead of for the needs of the West.

Rather than worrying about Washington’s sanctions, the Russian government should put sanctions on Russian companies for doing business with the US. In their activities abroad, American corporations are agents for the CIA, and they are agents in behalf of Washington’s policy of destabilizing Russia and China.

To see the truth of this, look at the history of Latin America. Every reformist government in
every Latin American country in which the US has a business presence has been destabilized and overthrown.

Russia’s goal should be to insulate itself from the West, not integrate itself into the West. To be integrated into the West means to be a vassal state. Together Russia, China and India comprise by far the largest potential market in the world and also the largest geographical area.

These three countries should focus on integrating their economies and insulate themselves against the West.

Modern Monetary Theory, which is associated with outstanding economists such as Michael Hudson, makes it clear that countries should finance their infrastructure and any productive investment by creating money not debt. The use of government debt simply allows private banks to create the money, and the debt has to be serviced with interest paid to the banks, which drains the economy of spending power. Moreover, the debt can end up in hostile hands and be used to destabilize the economy.

If Russia is going to allow the West to control its economy, it may as well allow Washington to control its armed forces.

Unfortunately for the Russian government and the Russian people, Russia’s Central Bank and neoliberal economists are too naive and gullible to be able to protect Russia from destabilization. Until Russia finds much better economic advice, the country’s future remains uncertain.

Note: In the above URL to the Sputnik article, Sputnik reports: “Toner added that Washington has sent a ‘clear signal’ to Moscow through ‘combined sanctions, restrictive measures, and reduced diplomatic engagement’ that it should fulfill its commitments under the Minsk ceasefire deal and end its ‘occupation of Crimea.’”


Is this sloppy editing by Sputnik or has Sputnik succumbed to Washington’s propaganda? 

Russia is not required under the Minsk accord to deliver Crimea to Washington. Moreover, Russia is not “occupying” Crimea. Crimea, a province of Russia for centuries, has a Russian population. The population in a massive voter turnout voted almost 100% to return to Russia from which the province was wrenched by Khrushchev when Russia and Ukraine were part of the same country.
