Chabahar port is situated in the province of Sistan and Baluchistan in the south-eastern part of Iran. It is strategically located at the Strait of Hormuz in the Arabian Sea, providing easy access to Oman Sea, the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean. The port opens a direct linkage to South Asia, Central Asia, the Middle East and Afghanistan via rail, road, se...

India is no longer the inward-looking nation it became soon after its inception in 1947. For decades, India’s post-Independence development strategy was to foster a self-sustaining economy premised on a low rate of economic growth. Adopting that policy made the country both inward-looking and highly interventionist; New Delhi insisted on import protection, c...

Operation Z is the first salvo of a titanic struggle: three decades after the fall of the USSR, and 77 years after the end of WWII, after careful evaluation, the Kremlin is rearranging the geopolitical chessboard to end the unipolar hegemony of the “indispensable nation”. No wonder the Empire of Lies has gone completely berserk, obsessed in completely expell...

What was, until a year ago, a “brain dead” organisation according to the French President has suddenly found not only a working brain but also a conflict to revive itself. The Russia-Ukraine conflict, while originally pushed by the US/Western insistence on expanding NATO to include Ukraine to encircle Russia, has become a direct source of oxygen for the orga...

For those of you in tune, it must seem obvious that the liberal world order now has the power to change the number of hours in a day. Those of us who have sought to moderate the worldview of Russia, of Vladimir Putin even, are now only muffled annoyances for the “normal people” who get their brain set from CNN, BBC, ABC, or from their brainwashed friends...

Israel’s rapidly deteriorating relations with Russia contain a message for other Middle Eastern powers: attempting to remain on the sidelines of the conflict in Ukraine risks falling in between the cracks. Like Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Turkey, Israel has sought to maintain good relations with the United States and Russia...

The arrest of Canadian general Trevor John Cadieu on May 1 by Russian troops while trying to escape from Azovstal in Mariupol can serve as a piece of evidence that official evidence of the “collective West” has unleashed a war against Russia in Ukraine. Seven months ago, he was considered a prime candidate for the position of the Canadian Army...

In two months, the Russian special military operation against the Banderites has turned into a real war between the Russians and the Donbass People’s Republics on the one hand and the NATO-backed Ukrainians on the other. A Ukrainian victory would be a blow against Russia and a Russian victory would mark the death of NATO. Neither of the two protagonists can ...

The Rajapaksas – President Gotabaya and PM Mahinda – are fighting a losing battle to retain their hold on power, after public protests demanding their removal gathered momentum. During the first half of the month Sri Lanka went bankrupt, the government announced that it would temporarily default on $35.5 bn in foreign debt as the war in Ukraine aggravated th...

Under an ubiquitous, toxic atmosphere of cognitive dissonance drenched in Russophobia, it’s absolutely impossible to have a meaningful discussion on finer points of Russian history and culture across the NATO space – a phenomenon I’m experiencing back in Paris right now, fresh from a long stint in Istanbul. At best, in a semblance of civilized dialogue, Russ...

The US withdrawal from Afghanistan was a geopolitical watershed. Its shockwaves continue to reverberate and are magnified by the wars in Ukraine and Yemen. Coupled with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the US withdrawal removed a major obstacle to Iranian projection in Central Asia and created an opportunity for Iran to potentially enhance its influence, inc...

In the US, the future of the Biden administration and the President himself are at stake because of an ongoing corruption scandal that is closely linked to the war in Ukraine. The New York Times, a leading voice for Liberal America, published a rather unexpected special report, which confirmed the truth of the two-year-old leaks about Joe Biden’s son, Hunter...

The stated aims of Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine include the de-Nazification and demilitarisation of the Kiev regime. In opposition, the NATO member states led by the US are arming the Ukraine and its Nazi battalions, while sending thousands of “volunteers”, “advisors” and other mercenaries to fight with the aim of prolonging the war for y...

When US Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III declared that Washington wanted to see Russia so “weakened” that it would no longer be able to invade a neighbouring state, he lifted the veil on US goals in Ukraine. He also held out the prospect of a long-term US-Russian contest for power and influence. Mr. Austin’s remarks were problematic on several fronts. F...

We are currently witnessing the greatest change in the Geo political landscape that has ever occurred in the lives of those alive today. At the end of the Second World War there were two major powers in the world: Russia and the United States. Only one, the United States, then had the atomic bomb, which they had used in July 1945 in a live experiment on the ...

Given that the risk of the US strategic confrontation simultaneously with Russia and China would be, as even US experts rightly point out, a “geopolitical nightmare” for Washington, the US is trying harder and harder to draw its allies into this struggle, especially in Asia. This is why the White House has recently focused its attention on the expansion of Q...

In a previous article, I showed how and why MI6 and the CIA formed an alliance with Ukrainian Banderites during the Cold War. These men and women, who should have been tried at Nuremberg, became shadow soldiers for the victors. They could pursue their anti-Russian obsession at their service. Following the numerous reactions of my readers, I would like to exp...

Rather than push for an immediate improvement of strained relations with the United States, Saudi Arabia appears to be looking forward to a time when US President Joe Biden’s wings may be clipped. The kingdom seems to be betting on a better reception in Washington if Democrats lose control of Congress in this year’s midterm elections and/or Donald J. Trump o...

Neither NATO nor Russia is telling us what really happened with the Moskva, the legendary admiral ship of the Black Sea fleet. NATO because in theory, they know. Moscow, for its part, made it clear they are not saying anything until they can be sure what happened. One thing is certain. If the Russian Ministry of Defence finds out that NATO did it, they will ...

It would seem that with the passing of a vote of no confidence in Prime Minister Imran Khan by the lower house of Pakistan’s parliament on April 9 this year and the subsequent election of Shehbaz Sharif to the post, the acute political crisis of the previous two weeks, dubbed the “constitutional” crisis, could have been safely resolved. However, it makes sen...
