PRELUDE TO WAR IN THE PACIFIC
Our media only gives the US side of the story about ownership of the Spratly and Parace Islands in the South China Sea. This article looks at the history of these islands. In fact the "disputed" islands were incorporated into the Chinese administrative region of Qiong Zhou during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD). The Chinese have more historical right to these islands than the US does to the Hawaiian islands. The approach of US and Australia to China is akin to the 19th century gunboat diplomacy.
MILITARY COUP IN TURKEY
Coup organized by US failed. Turkey moving closer to Russia. Erdogan said that Turkey could not be ruled from Pennsylvania. The coup organizers wanted closer relations with NATO and Washington. Turks want closer relations with Russia, and no Washington. Turks want to survive and eat, and to stay warm in coming winter. They need Russia’s market and Russia’s gas for these. Everyone knows by now that any pro- Washington coup means war, foreign occupation, collapse of economy, misery and civilian deaths.

THE NEW BRITISH FOREIGN POLICY by Thierry Meyssan
The Western Press keeps repeating the same message – by leaving the European Union, the British have isolated themselves from the rest of the world, and will have to deal with terrible economic consequences. And yet, the fall in the Pound could be an advantage within the Commonwealth, which is a far greater family than the Union, and present on all six continents. Famous for its pragmatism, the City could quickly become the international centre for the yuan and implant the Chinese currency in the very heart of the Union.
WHY THE BRITISH SAID NO TO EUROPE by John Pilger
The majority vote by Britons to leave the European Union was an act of raw democracy. Millions of ordinary people refused to be bullied, intimidated and dismissed with open contempt by their presumed betters in the major parties, the leaders of the business and banking oligarchy and the media.
27 YEARS AFTER THE FALL OF THE BERLIN WALL THE BREXIT RESHUFFLES WORLD GEOPOLITCS by Thierry Meyssan
While the world Press is searching for ways to re-start the reconstruction of Europe, still without Russia and now without the United Kingdom, Thierry Meyssan considers that nothing can now prevent the collapse of the system. However, he points out, what is at stake is not the European Union itself, but the institutions which enable the domination of the world by the United States, and the integrity of the United States themselves.
THE END OF M.A.D. (MUTUALLY ASSURED DESTRUCTION) - THE BEGINNING OF MADNESS
The West is in stark reality-denial. Whereas the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, between JFK and Khrushchev, was accompanied by an appropriate public fear on both sides, the even more dangerous situation this time, between Putin and Obama, elicits such fear only among the Russian people, not at all among Americans and other Westerners.
THE RED LINE CROSSED, IN THE CROSS-HAIRS, AT TRIGGER POINT — WAITING FOR AN OCTOBER SURPRISE
First there was the red-line announcement. On Friday in Athens there was the cross-hairs statement. By the month of October, the month before the US presidential election, there will be the trigger point.
The US and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies are going to war with Russia, accelerating the inevitability that Russia will strike in self-defence. This is what the first and second statements by President Vladimir Putin warn. There will be no statement of warning when the trigger point arrives.
HOW RUSSIA IS PREPARING FOR WWIII by the Saker
Take the Kalibr cruise-missile recently seen in the war in Syria. Did you know that it can be shot from a typical commercial container, like the ones you will find on trucks, trains or ships?
Remember that the Kalibr has a range of anywhere between 50km to 4000km and that it can carry a nuclear warhead. How hard would it be for Russia to deploy these cruise missiles right off the Australian coast in regular container ships? This is a system which is so undetectable that the Russians could deploy it off the coast of Australia to hit the NSA station in Alice Springs if they wanted, an nobody would even see it coming.
THE SIZE OF THE DERIVATIVES BUBBLE HANGING OVER THE GLOBAL ECONOMY HITS RECORD HIGH
AS IF WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TO WORRY ABOUT! THERE COULD BE A FINANCIAL CRISIS THAT MAKES 2008 LOOK LIKE A PICNIC!! "The global derivatives bubble is now 20 percent bigger than it was just before the last great financial crisis struck in 2008. It is a financial bubble far larger than anything the world has ever seen, and when it finally bursts it is going to be a complete and utter nightmare for the financial system of the planet. According to the Bank for International Settlements, the total notional value of derivatives contracts around the world has ballooned to an astounding 710 trillion dollars." Is this why the US is acting to stupid? They know the game is almost over?? And the Chinese have all the gold.
THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM; DEUTSCHE BANKK'S $75 TRILLION IN DERIVATIVES IS 20 TIMES GREATER THAN GERMAN GDP
As always, there is nothing to worry about: this €55 trillion in derivative exposure, should everything go really, really bad is backed by the more than equitable €522 billion in deposits, or just over 100 times less.
