The last thirty days have shown another kind of world that is engaging in cooperation, dialogue and diplomatic efforts to resolve important issues. The meeting of the members of the Belt and Road Initiative laid the foundations for a physical and electronic connectivity among Eurasian countries, making it the backbone of sustainable and renewable trade development based on mutual cooperation. A few weeks later, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting in Astana outlined the necessary conditions for the success of the Chinese project, such as securing large areas of the Eurasian block and improving dialogue and trust among member states. The following AIIB (Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank) meeting in ROK will layout the economical necessities to finance and sustain the BRI projects.

The most important change over the last days was the Syrian government forces move (red areas and arrows) in the south-east towards the Iraqi border. The original plan was to retrieve al-Tanf further south-west to secure the border crossing of the Damascus-Baghdad highway there. But al-Tanf was occupied by U.S., British and Norwegian invaders and some of their proxy forces (blue). Their airplanes attacked Syrian army convoys when they approached. The U.S. plan was to move from al-Tanf north towards the Euphrates river and to thereby capture and control the whole south-east of Syria. But Syria and its allies made an unexpected move and prevented that plan. The invaders are now cut off from the Euphrates by a Syrian west-to-east line that ends at the Iraqi border. On the Iraqi side elements of the Popular Military Unites under the command of the Iraqi government are moving to meet the Syrian forces at the border.

In the process of strengthening its influence, China is developing cooperation with its neighbors, seeking to bind all the small states in the surrounding region to itself economically.

On 2 June 2017, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2356 on the extension of sanctions against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

[Reposted from the Moscow-based Strategic Culture Foundation site: https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2017/06/05/kim-jong-un-isnt-crazy-and-china-doesnt-have-solution.html] Admittedly no one should expect linear thinking from President Donald Trump. Still, it was a bit jarring to hear him go from calling North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un a “pretty smart cookie” and “gentleman” who the president would be “honored” to meet to a “madman with […]

Imperialism is worried that China’s huge global infrastructure projects could challenge the U.S.-led world order The People’s Republic of China hosted a summit May 14 called the “One Belt, One Road” initiative, also known as the New Silk Road project. Twenty-nine heads of state and representatives of 130 countries attended from across Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe. Seventy countries signed agreements with China to participate. The “Belt” refers to the Silk Road Economic Belt. It encompasses land route development from central China to Central Asia, Iran, Turkey and Eastern Europe. The “Road” refers to the Maritime Silk Road. This involves ports and coastal infrastructure from Southeast Asia to East Africa and the Mediterranean.

The Dangerous Tone of US Media  Often, when people are first becoming personally acquainted with me and my political views, I will be asked point-blank: “Do you support North Korea?” I always respond, “No, I don’t support North Korea. I support all of Korea.” Among average Americans and even many who consider themselves activists and […]

“The real danger lies in whether the Christian world loses the last early Christians…the last ancient souls of the earth.” Such is the dire prediction by one writer regarding the ongoing exodus of Arab Christians from the Middle East – an exodus triggered by Western neo-colonialism and Zionist expansion that suits the military-industrial complex. In […]

The anti-ballistic missile interceptor system called THAAD is one of the many snake heads of the Pentagon that claims it is designed to protect us under its umbrella. Be wary because its dark shadow is not the cooling shade of the sacred 9-headed Cobra that kindly sheltered the Buddha. The snake head called THAAD has two poisonous fangs. These are First, the deceptive Pentagon claim that a “kinetic” missile tip can make a direct on hit an incoming ballistic missile. In the science of ballistics, this is like swinging a baseball bat against a bullet. It might be possible inside the strike zone at home plate, but don’t try it in the outfield. What I mean is that shooting an ICBC from Vandenberg onto Kwajalein island is pitching over home plate, with all factors under control. Try doing it, say, anywhere over French Polynesia and the batting average will drop to triple zero and it will be a strike out for Tahiti.

The American guided missile destroyer USS Dewey was reported as having carried out a ‘freedom of navigation operation’ or FONOP in the South China Sea on May 24.

When President-elect Donald Trump sent his talent scouts to the attack-dog kennel run by defense industry giant General Dynamics, in order to recruit former Marine General James “Mad Dog” Mattis to be secretary of defense, cries of apprehension were drowned out by smug one-percent reassurances. Those who “know what’s best for the country” insisted: “NOT […]

Small but geopolitically important steps were taken by key members of the European Union from the EU’s Eastern periphery. While largely ignored in Western mainstream media and in Brussels, they could well portend a longer-term alternative economic space to the failing construct known misleadingly today as the European Union with its bankrupt Eurozone single currency […]

To realize peace on the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia, an important issue is to identify the real stakeholders and troublemakers in the process and work out a practical strategy to guarantee the interests of the true stakeholders and stop the troublemakers from making troubles. This point is raised because we are facing the reality […]

On 23 May “False Flag” may have still been a (slight) question mark, despite many signs that pointed to the notorious pattern of the nefarious dark and bloody hands that pull the strings behind Washington’s killings to manipulate public minds towards targets and objectives they have set for the world – the New World Order – NWO – that is. In the meantime, the “False Flag” question mark has largely disappeared. Consider this: *Since 9/11 – and increasingly so – any mass event in the west, notably in Europe and the US, like the pop concert by US singer Ariana Grande in Manchester on 22 May, would be cordoned-off and super secured. How can the terrorist with his artisan bomb (under the arm or under his belt?) get through security? Was he perhaps brought in by the police, or by the secret services, then shot just as they detonated the bomb? – In any case, he is conveniently dead, another witness done away with.

News agencies around the world have claimed that the recent computer-virus outbreak known as Wanna Decryptor 2, or WannaCry, was designed and released by a DPRK-sponsored cyber-warfare team nicknamed Lazarus. The blatantly erroneous media claim are based on a single source: Simon Choi, a director of Seoul-based Hauri, the Seoul-based producer of computer-security software called the ViRobot. Hard evidence and background events show Lazarus to be a fictitious entity and part of a charade to shield the actual perpetrators of Wannacry and previous cyber-attacks including DarkSeoul and the strike against Sony Pictures Entertainment. The facts gathered thus far for this investigative report on the “Lazarus Deception” indicates that Hauri is a cyber-espionage group and propaganda voice for South Korea’s National Intelligence Agency (NIS, formerly known as the KCIA) and a vehicle for psychological operations (psyops) by that country’s Defense Ministry.
