Targeted strikes, Iran's key asset

As in the past, when the Shiites were persecuted by the Sunni Seljuk occupiers, Teheran is preparing for the now inevitable attack on its territory by Washington and Jerusalem. Iran is counting on drones and missiles, its major deterrent against the Judeo-American empire, to deliver decisive blows.

Modern Iran could draw on the heritage of the medieval Assassin sect to shape its contemporary defense strategy. Just as the Assassins of the 11th century sacrificed themselves by killing the generals of Sunni armies who oppressed Shiite populations, Iran today uses missiles and drones to strike hard at the powerful Judeo-American empire that is coming to annihilate it. The history of the Assassins goes back to the Ismaili Islamic sect of the Nizârites, active between the 11th and 13th centuries, whose Arabic name, Hashashiyyin, gave rise to the term "Assassins" in Western languages.

The Assassins used targeted assassination tactics to resist the dominant Sunni powers of the time. Lacking a powerful army, they relied on specialized warriors, the fedayeen, to carry out targeted missions. Today, Iran takes a similar approach, using drones and missiles to strike accurately at its enemies, inflicting significant damage on its powerful adversary.

The deployment of drones like the Karrar during military exercises demonstrates Iran's ability to carry out precise and effective operations against ground targets. These drones, combined with high-precision missiles, represent major assets in Iran's defense strategy, enabling them to maintain an offensive posture while avoiding direct confrontation with superior forces.

So, just as the Assassins of the past used assassination tactics to resist their oppressors, modern Iran uses the latest military technologies to defend its interests and deter external aggression, continuing a tradition of resistance that has its roots in the tumultuous history of the Middle East.

The rise of drones in Iranian defense

The Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Navy Rear Admiral, General Alireza Tangsiri, emphasized that the use of drones is now a key IRGC defensive strategy. This development demonstrates the adaptation of Iran, heir to a great civilization, to technological developments and its ability to circumvent international pressure and sanctions.

In a recent military exercise, Iranian Karrar drones were deployed to destroy ground targets by firing 500-pound bombs. This show of force highlights the precision and effectiveness of Iranian drones in military operations. Drones can be used to strike targets with extreme precision, reinforcing Iran's deterrent capability against any aggression.

Iranian drones are not limited to ground strikes; they are also used in a range of military operations, including reconnaissance, electronic warfare and jamming enemy air defense systems. This versatility demonstrates the growing importance of UAVs in modern military operations, offering extended range and the ability to adapt quickly to tactical needs.

Combat readiness

Iran's regular military exercises seek to demonstrate its determination to defend its sovereignty and maintain its deterrent capability against the next US-Israeli attack. Iranian officials have repeatedly stressed that the country's defense capabilities will never be subject to negotiation, underlining Iran's firmness in its defensive posture. 

Teheran is unlikely to avoid a nuclear strike on its territory. The decision to strike hard on Iranian soil has long been taken. But the considerable missile and drone equipment of an old nation, determined to make any sacrifice to defend its soil, should prevent its final eradication.

Where is East Africa going?

As peacekeepers withdraw from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), internal and external tensions in the region's countries cast a gloomy shadow over the area's future. Local players have little chance of finding a way out of the worsening humanitarian crisis.

The Blue Helmets withdraw from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

At the request of the Congolese authorities, who have expressed their wish to take greater responsibility for their country's security after years of presence, the international troops of the East African Community (EAC) have begun to withdraw from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), leaving a security vacuum in their wake. This decision comes as armed clashes persist in the country's eastern provinces, such as North Kivu, South Kivu and Ituri.

The struggle for control of gold, diamonds, coltan and oil.

The conflict in the DRC pits government forces against various rebel groups, including the M23. The M23 rebels, backed by Rwanda, are active in eastern DRC, mainly in the North Kivu region. The M23, which emerged in 2012 and is mainly made up of dissident soldiers from the Congolese army, has committed massacres, rapes and the recruitment of child soldiers. This led to international intervention in an attempt to restore peace and security.

The main cause of the conflict in the DRC is the struggle for control of gold, diamonds and oil. There's also a new one: coltan. Coltan is a strategic resource, as it is used in the manufacture of capacitors for cell phones, computers and other electronic devices. These natural resources are coveted by armed groups and local militias, who vie for control of territories and trade routes. Ethnic rivalries often exacerbate these tensions, with armed groups rallying behind ethnic identities to claim territorial rights.

Tensions between Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi and the DRC.

Despite apparent efforts by the international community, tensions persist between certain countries in the region, in particular between Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi and the DRC. This tension is fuelled by interference and support from cross-border rebel groups who attack Congolese authorities. With the departure of the UN peacekeepers, these countries are stepping up their interference in the region.

Congolese forces 

The Congolese government, led by President Félix Tshisekedi, claims to want to ensure security and stability in the areas previously covered by international forces. But the Congolese security forces are corrupt, guilty of abuses against civilians and unable to ensure security throughout the country.

The withdrawal of peacekeepers from the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO) therefore leaves a vacuum. MONUSCO troops were a bulwark against both Congolese army and rebel abuses in eastern DRC. Their departure leaves the local populations alone to face their tormentors.

Sudan confronts its exactions

Faced with the military impasse, regional leaders are turning to diplomacy to find a solution to the conflict in the DRC. The President of South Sudan, Salva Kiir, wants to lead a diplomatic initiative to defuse tensions. 

But in Sudan itself, the death of thousands of civilians, the massive displacement of millions more, the looting of property and the conscription of children - the picture is bleak. Indiscriminate attacks by the Sudanese Armed Forces, summary executions, ethnic violence and sexual violence, including gang rape, have led to the displacement of millions of people, both within Sudan and in neighbouring countries.

Transnistria, NATO's new war

NATO opens a new front against Russian interests in Transnistria. Since 1991, Transnistria has been a self-proclaimed independent state of Moldova, a European country landlocked between Romania and Ukraine. Transnistria is a flashpoint between Moldova and the Russian Federation. Fighting groups made up of Western mercenaries and Ukrainians have been launching attacks against the Moscow-backed Transnistrian authorities since May 2022. 

Before becoming President of Transnistria, Vadim Krasnoselsky held several positions in the regional administration. He worked in the field of economics and was a member of the Transnistrian parliament. In 2016, he won the Transnistrian presidential elections, succeeding Yevgeny Shevchuk. As head of Transnistria, Krasnoselsky was involved in negotiations with Moldova concerning the region's political and territorial status. 

Today, Krasnoselsky points the finger at the stalled negotiations involving Moldova (opposed to Transnistria's secession), Transnistria, Russia, Ukraine and the OSCE. The OSCE, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, is an international organization working for security and stability in Europe. Founded in 1975 under the Helsinki Accords, the OSCE currently has 57 member states, covering a vast territory from North America to Central Asia. 

Russian peacekeeping force against NATO sabotage groups

An international peacekeeping force is currently deployed in the region. This force is made up of Russian, Moldovan and Transnistrian troops. Ukraine has withdrawn its peacekeeping troops since the Russian military operation of February 2022. Kiev is now sending clandestine combat groups to carry out sabotage operations, in the hope of opening up a new front.

Indeed, there are reports of sabotage groups operating in Moldova, made up of Ukrainian citizens and Western mercenaries. These groups engage in terrorist acts and sabotage of military installations in the Transnistrian region, adding to tensions in this region where supporters and opponents of secession are pitted against each other.

Terrorist attacks since May 2022

Since May 2022, Transnistria has been the scene of a series of terrorist attacks, targeting government and military buildings. These attacks are obviously intended to destabilize the region and open up a new front against Russia, following NATO's defeat in Ukraine.

How Washington sold out Ukraine to take on Moscow...

Ten years ago, former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych signed an agreement with the opposition Euromaidan to resolve Ukraine's political crisis. The very next day, the opposition tore up the agreement and seized power by force. Behind Ukraine, the American Empire wanted to take over Russia. The story of a determined war.

After months of rioting, sparked by the Euromaidan movement, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych agreed to reform the constitution, form a "government of national unity" and hold early elections in December 2014. The Ukrainian president agreed to pardon rioters and launch investigations into abuses by law enforcement agencies.

The February 21 agreements aimed at ending the political crisis in Ukraine were signed by Yanukovych and opposition leaders Vitaly Klitschko (Udar Party), Arseniy Yatsenyuk (Batkivshchina) and Oleh Tiagnybok (Svoboda Nationalist Party) in the presence of German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski and Eric Fournier, Director of the Continental Europe Department at the French Foreign Ministry.

The day after the agreement, on February 22, 2014, the buildings of the presidential administration, the Verkhovna Rada and the Cabinet of Ministers were stormed by violent demonstrators. Maidan leaders appointed Oleksandr Turchynov as head of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, in violation of the country's constitution. Yanukovych was ousted. Speaking on television from Kharkiv, Yanukovych refused to resign: "I am a legally elected president. What is happening is blatant vandalism, banditry and a coup d'état", he declared. 

Nevertheless, EU leaders immediately declared that they would work with Ukraine's "new government", sweeping aside the agreements they had just secured the day before. February 2014. Yanukovych left Ukraine and fled to Russia. 

Washington was behind the coup

Officially, the opposition was supported by the Europeans, but as Russian President Vladimir Putin declared in 2015, "We knew perfectly well that the real puppeteers were our American partners and friends."

In early February 2014, an intercepted conversation between US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, a descendant of Ukrainian Jewish immigrants on her father's side, and US Ambassador to Ukraine, now US Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Resources since 2022, Geoffrey Pyatt, spoke of bringing opposition leader Arseniy Yatseniouk to power, and putting Tiagnybok and Klitschko "on the sidelines". Nuland dropped: "Fuck the EU..."

On February 27, 2014, Yatseniouk was appointed Prime Minister of Ukraine. Klitschko became mayor of Kiev on June 5, 2014. Tiagnybok was kept out of government.

Russia was the target.

After the coup, Arseniy Yatsenyuk's government brutally repressed its political opponents, promoting an openly Russophobic agenda, and sent the army against civilians in the Donbass, opposed to the coup against legitimate President Yanukovych.

Larry Johnson, a former CIA intelligence officer and State Department official, believes that the West had simply decided to take control of Russia and its formidable natural wealth. "They were looking for a long-term strategy to isolate Russia. And the key to that was to get Ukraine into NATO, into the EU, and thus isolate Russia." At least, American strategists thought they could isolate Russia. 

Broken agreements

Russia had hoped to put an end to the bloodshed in the Donbass thanks to the Minsk agreements. The Minska Protocol was signed on September 5, 2014 in Minsk, the capital of Belarus, by representatives of Ukraine, Russia, the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), with the aim of ending the war in Donbass. The agreements called for a cessation of hostilities, the withdrawal of heavy weapons from the front line, the release of prisoners of war and constitutional reform in Ukraine to grant autonomy to the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics.

Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel and former French President François Hollande have since acknowledged that the Minsk agreements were maneuvers to buy time to arm and train the Ukrainian army. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, himself, admitted in an interview with Spiegel in February 2023 that he had never intended to observe the Minsk agreements; nor had the Euromaidan putchists intended to respect the agreements signed on February 21, 2014 with President Viktor Yanukovych. 

Washington wants war.

The United States could have refused to integrate Ukraine into NATO, refrained from conducting military exercises with Ukraine, reopened discussions with Moscow on reviving the ABM Treaty and the INF Treaty on intermediate nuclear forces. The ABM Treaty (Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty) was signed in 1972 between the United States and the Soviet Union. The aim of this treaty was to limit the deployment of missile defense systems in order to discourage an arms race in this field. Both parties undertook to deploy only a limited number of missile defense systems, thus limiting the possibility of defense against intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).

The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), signed in 1987 between the USA and the Soviet Union, prohibited the production, stockpiling and deployment of ballistic and land-based cruise missiles with ranges of 500 to 5,500 kilometers. This was a key element in reducing tensions during the Cold War, as it prohibited the deployment of an entire class of short- and medium-range nuclear weapons in Europe.

These two treaties were seen as pillars of strategic stability between the USA and the Soviet Union, then Russia after the dissolution of the USSR. 

However, in 2002, under the George W. Bush administration, the United States announced its unilateral withdrawal from the ABM Treaty. The development of missile defense systems resumed. Similarly, in 2019, under Donald Trump's first term in office, the United States unilaterally withdrew from the INF Treaty. Russia announced its own withdrawal from the INF Treaty, and arms control no longer existed.

President Biden repeatedly voiced his opposition to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, claiming that it would increase Europe's energy dependence on Russia and weaken Europe's "energy security". The United States has threatened sanctions against companies and entities involved in the pipeline's construction, as well as against countries supporting the project. On February 6, 2022, at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, US President Joe Biden warned: "If Russia invaded Ukraine, there would be no Nordstream 2. We will stop it. Asked how he would go about it, he replied, "I promise you we'll be able to do it." 

The sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines actually took place on September 26, 2022 in the Baltic Sea, resulting in major gas leaks. The first, on Nord Stream 2, was discovered southeast of the Danish island of Bornholm. Several hours later, two further leaks were discovered on Nord Stream 1 to the north-east of the island. This was a deliberate act, as traces of explosives had been found.  

In an article published on his blog on February 8, 2023, Pulitzer Prize-winning American journalist Seymour Hersh asserts that the USA and Norway are behind the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines, citing a single anonymous source with direct knowledge of operational planning. 

The Russian Bear is patient.

Russia has always been open to negotiations. Moscow has maintained a dialogue with the Poroshenko and Zelensky governments to implement the Minsk agreements in order to respect the rights of Ukraine's Russian speakers while preserving the nation's territorial integrity. Petro Poroshenko's government was in office in Ukraine from June 7, 2014 to May 20, 2019. Poroshenko was elected President of Ukraine in May 2014, succeeding Viktor Yanukovych who had fled to Russia.

As for Volodymyr Zelensky's government, it has been in office since May 20, 2019. Zelensky won the Ukrainian presidential election in April 2019, succeeding Petro Poroshenko as President of Ukraine. His government was formed shortly after his presidential inauguration and remains in office to this day.

The Western press is silent on the fact that, before launching the military operation in Ukraine, Moscow sought to conclude agreements with the USA and NATO to ensure common European security. Draft agreements providing for NATO guarantees against eastward expansion and for Ukraine's neutral status were deliberately ignored by Washington, Brussels and, of course, the NATO leadership.

A month after the start of the special military operation, Russian and Ukrainian representatives signed preliminary peace agreements in Istanbul in March 2022. Davyd Arakhamia, who headed the Ukrainian delegation at the March 2022 Istanbul talks with Russia, told Ukrainian TV channel 1+1 in November 2023 that Moscow was ready to end the conflict if Ukraine committed to neutrality and refused to join NATO. However, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson forced President Volodymyr Zelensky to fight to the bitter end. Ex-Prime Minister Johnson was backed by European Commission Vice-President Josep Borrell Fontelles, in April 2022, who promised hundreds of millions of euros for Kiev: "This war will be won on the battlefield", he tweeted... US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin declared that Washington wanted to see "Russia weakened." The U.S. has spent over $100 billion, the European Union has given around €85 billion, to support Ukraine's military effort. The result is inconclusive.

Paki Spies

The recent case of Satendra Siwal, an Indian security agent turned in by the ISI, Pakistan's intelligence service, highlights the espionage tactics used by Pakistan to obtain information. The method, known since the early days of espionage, is now massively employed by the Pakistanis and poses serious problems for India's national security. Since independence, India and Pakistan have spied on each other. In this game, there's only one rule: don't get caught. 

Satendra Siwal, a 28-year-old Indian working as a security officer at the Indian mission in Moscow, was seduced by a female agent from Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI). The case came to light when Siwal was arrested for passing strategic information to Pakistan, endangering India's national security. He is accused of accepting money from a female ISI agent who seduced him into betraying his country. Generally speaking, security personnel for Indian missions abroad are drawn from the ranks of the Indian police, whether officers or non-commissioned officers. These men are selected to serve on Indian missions abroad to ensure the security of the mission. The duration of their assignment is generally three years, at least two of which are spent abroad. In 2021, Satyendra Siwal was sent to Moscow as a security assistant. It's not clear when he was approached by the ISI. But he was spotted by Indian counter-intelligence, who found that he was passing on sensitive information concerning the movements and development of Indian troops to his sweetheart. Siwal is not the first to have been approached by a Pakistani beauty. Since independence, the two countries have been engaged in a secret war, in which sex and money are often the preferred recruitment tools used by both sides to obtain sensitive information. 

The evolving threat

Pakistan's intelligence agency targets not only the military, but anyone who can provide sensitive information. Nitin Yadav, for example, arrested in April 2022, was supplying fruit and vegetables to a barracks. He sent photos of the military camp and the photo of his fruit and vegetable orders placed by the barracks. This information helped Pakistani agents to estimate the size and strength of the Indian military camp.

Once limited to Indian territory, Pakistani espionage operations now also extend to Indian missions worldwide. Pakistani agents target vulnerabilities, whether money or sex, to recruit Indian informers.

Siwal, originally from Uttar Pradesh, had been assigned to Moscow by the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Her arrest revealed details of the new way in which the ISI approaches its targets: on social networks. The agent makes contact, leaves a phone message, calls back daily, sends photos and videos full of promise. The targeted man falls for the seduction, and some think they've found a fiancée. In Siwal's case, the beauty had even introduced him to her sister in a video exchange. Siwal was discreetly placed under electronic surveillance by Indian counter-intelligence agents, then interrogated by Indian officials. He is accused of committing an act of war against the nation, as well as violating the Official Secrets Act. Investigators recovered two cell phones from his possession, and examined his bank account to assess the amount of money he had received from Pakistan. Between promises of money and intimate relationships, Islamabad's beautiful spies are getting good results.

Seduction attempts on an industrial scale

Siwal's case is far from isolated. Pakistan is stepping up its psychological operations. Last year alone, at least three cases came to light. One of them involved an official from the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO). The DRDO carries out research and development for the Indian Army. This official, who has been imprisoned, is accused of passing information to Pakistani agents. The ISI is actively trying to frame Indian officials, and Pakistan has some experience in such operations.

Pradeep Kumar had also met Riya on social networks a year and a half earlier. Pradeep was an artilleryman in the Indian army stationed in Jodhpur. Riya introduced himself as a lieutenant-colonel in a military hospital in Bengaluru. They talked for hours, often on video. 

In May, Pradeep Kumar's world came crashing down. The 24-year-old was arrested for helping a Pakistani spy. His love, Riya, was not an Indian army officer, but a spy in the service of Pakistan. 

In 2017, India recalled three diplomats. They were working at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad. According to Indian Security communiqués, they had been targeted by Pakistani agents trying to seduce them, but the attempt had failed. Another Indian diplomat was arrested. She also worked for the Indian High Commission in the press division. She was accused of passing classified documents to an attractive ISI correspondent.

In all, 28 people have been arrested for espionage in Rajasthan since 2019, including 24-year-old Shantimoy Rana, who had planned to marry at the end of September. He is also behind bars. "Ankita", the agent who seduced him in August 2021, also claimed to work in the Indian army. Shantimoy didn't know she was a Pakistani agent; the beautiful Pakistani had even sent him $5,000 as a pre-wedding gift. 

Attacks at every level.

It's not just ordinary soldiers who are affected. The notorious Shashi Tharoor, Minister of Human Resources Development and renowned writer, was seduced by a Pakistani journalist, Mehr Tarar. Tharoor's third wife, Sunanda Pushkar, having discovered the affair and the exchange of information, publicly denounced her before taking her own life. 

Tharoor had had a brilliant career. A former UN Under-Secretary-General, the 57-year-old diplomat had written several books for which he had received a dozen literary awards. These included novels, as well as political science works on modern India. During his 29-year career with the United Nations, he worked on a number of complex issues, first with the UNHCR, the Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees. Then, from 1991 to 1996, he headed the UN team responsible for peacekeeping operations in the former Yugoslavia. In 2006, India even nominated him to succeed Kofi Annan as UN Secretary-General...

Of course, Indians living in border areas continue to be particularly targeted. "We are working hard to raise awareness, especially in the border areas. Not only we, but the army and paramilitary forces at their level, are trying to raise awareness among soldiers and the public," said Indian military authorities. The use of social media platforms is now prohibited in the Indian army.


Lady Di assassination, the African trail.

Princess Diana was murdered by MI6 and the CIA. The authors of the book "Princess Diana: The Evidence", Jon King and John Beveridge, offer further information on the circumstances surrounding the princess's death. But the most interesting aspect of this book, published in 2008, is the motive behind her assassination. More than her complicated love life, her affair with the Muslim Dodi Al-Fayed, her impregnation by Dr. Hasnat Khan, the motive for her assassination must be sought in the juicy - and criminal - Western arms business in Africa that she was about to unveil.

"The clinic

According to former SAS sergeant Dave Cornish, former royal bodyguard Mike Grey and former SAS officer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the "Boston Brakes" method was used to crash the vehicle carrying the Princess into a pillar on the Pont de l'Alma in Paris. 

This "Boston Brakes" method, developed by the CIA, has been used on several occasions in the past, such as for the assassination of Major Michael Marman in 1986. Sir Ranulph Fiennes has written a book entitled "The Feather Men", a secret group formed in the 1970s to protect former SAS members. Five former SAS members, including Marman, had thus become the targets of a team of hitmen known as "The Clinic", paid to assassinate them by the son of an Arab businessman. Four of the man's brothers had previously been killed by SAS members in the Dhofar region of the United Arab Emirates in the 1960s and 1970s. The fifth son was determined to honor the principle of "thaa'r" - revenge on his brothers' murderers.

The "La Clinic" team of hitmen had therefore been hired to eliminate Major Michael Marman. Surveillance had determined that he frequently drove along the A303 in Wiltshire, southwest England. He was usually alone and drove a relatively fragile vehicle, a Citroën 2CV. Marman, as the lone driver of an unprotective car, was the ideal target for this kind of attack. However, the Clinic could not sabotage Marman's car directly, nor could they hit him directly with their car, as their contractual obligation stipulated that Marman's death had to appear accidental. A police investigation could uncover sabotage or identify a killer. So they decided to use a driver who would unknowingly become Marman's executioner.

The men at the Clinic chose a businessman who traveled regularly between Plymouth and London. He was Sir Peter Horsley, former squire to the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen, and former Commander-in-Chief of the British Atomic Strike Force. He worked for an engineering company, ML Holdings. The men at "the Clinic" learned that Sir Peter was to drive from London to Plymouth for a board meeting on November 11, 1986. His route would inevitably take him past Marman in the opposite direction along the A303. 

"The Clinic" therefore entered Horsley's garage during the night of November 10-11, and installed a parasitic braking system, hidden in such a way that it could not be detected at first glance. The braking system was radio-controlled so that it could be triggered remotely, without the driver's control.

The killers had previously tested the reliability of this technique with cars of various models. 

Two members of the Clinic therefore followed Horsley, while remaining in communication with a second Clinic team, which was following Marman. When Marman's Citroën and Horsley's BMW were about to meet along the A303, the parasitic braking system was triggered. Sir Horsley suddenly lost control of his vehicle, which collided head-on with Marman's car. The collision killed Marman instantly and seriously injured Sir Horsley. 

Initially suspected of reckless driving, Sir Horsley fortunately had a witness following him. This witness testified to seeing a puff of smoke coming out of the back of Horsley's car just before he lost control. The local coroner's inquest found no further evidence. The Clinic's parasitic braking system had been secretly removed, after the accident, while the BMW was in police impound. 

It was the Feather Men who finally learned how Marman's assassination had been organized by capturing the Clinic's chief, who recounted how it had been done.

In his autobiography, "Sounds From Another Room", Sir Horsley recounted that he was driving at around 100 km/h when the car began to react strangely. He saw a gray Volvo closing fast behind him and, as he was about to let it pass, his BMW abruptly turned left, brakes screeching, then abruptly right and left again. 

Precedents around the British royal family

It's eerily similar to what happened to the Mercedes carrying Lady Di before she crashed into the pillar of the Pont de l'Alma in Paris. The "Boston Brakes" technique was used to eliminate Diana's former lover, Barry Mannakee. Barry Mannakee was a police officer who had been assigned as Lady Diana's chauffeur in 1985. Rumors of an intimate relationship between them had circulated. Mannakee was transferred in 1986. He was eliminated in a suspicious motorcycle "accident" in 1987, just as he was about to reveal information about the Royal Family.

Camilla Parker Bowles, Prince Charles' mistress before becoming his wife, was also the victim of a "warning" shortly before Lady Di's death. She was injured in a car accident in June 1997 on her way to join the Prince at Highgrove, Gloucestershire. Mrs Parker-Bowles, 49 at the time, was driving her car when it collided head-on with another car driven by a lone woman. The other driver suffered minor injuries. Both drivers tested negative for alcohol. 

That day, Mrs. Bowles suffered a severe blow to the head, which was supposed to make her more "reasonable" to stay away from Prince Charles. Not being sufficiently "aristocratic" to be a princess, Camilla's persistent relationship with Charles displeased the Queen. But beyond this, the prospect of Prince Charles divorcing Lady Di and marrying Mrs. Parker-Bowles had triggered a crisis in both the Anglican Church and royalty. According to Tony Wright, parliamentary assistant to the Lord Chancellor at the time, the constitutional reform entailed by this event, seemingly insignificant in our time, resembled the crisis caused by Henry VIII's divorce in the 16th century. At the time, dozens of people, including two of the King's wives, were executed because of the turmoil surrounding the affair.

Elimination decided at the highest level

Former members of the SAS and bodyguards of the British Crown claim that the circumstances surrounding Diana's death have all the hallmarks of an assassination by security services. Since the tragic accident in 1997, a number of anomalies have raised questions. 

According to the authors of the book "Princess Diana: The Evidence", Jon King and John Beveridge, Diana's seatbelt was found in a retracted position, thus unusable at the time of the accident, as if it had been intentionally sabotaged.

The French and British authorities have been criticized for their handling of the investigation into Diana's death. The investigation was, to say the least, astonishingly flawed when it came to gathering crucial evidence. Car wreckage, brake marks and other physical evidence were deliberately overlooked or inadequately examined. Not only were there gaps in evidence gathering that compromised the investigation, but crucial witness testimony, technical data on the accident scene or expert conclusions were deliberately ignored. 

The precise and detailed reconstruction of the events leading up to the accident was obviously censored by Paris and London, on Washington's orders. 

Political pressure from London also directly hindered the investigation and skewed its conclusions. For example, the true identities of certain paparazzi were not disclosed. Paparazzo James Andanson, who was suspected of having taken part in the attack on Lady Di at the wheel of his mysterious white Fiat Uno, was found dead with a hole in his head in Millau, southern France, in 2000. The man boasted to friends that he had "explosive" photos of Lady Di's death. The photos were kept in a safe. James Andanson's death was ruled a suicide... 

The Metropolitan Police also killed Lady Di's letter to her former butler, Paul Burrel. "I believe my husband has planned an attack in which I will die of a head injury, following a car accident." Communications between Diana, Prince Charles and Prince Philip have never been revealed. 

The embalming of Lady Di's body, for example, was carried out without legal authorization and was ordered by a high-ranking British diplomat stationed at the British Embassy in Paris, on the very night of the accident. 

This multiple interference with legal procedures points to intervention at the highest level by Paris, London and Washington. The blood samples supposedly taken from Diana's chauffeur, Henri Paul, were false. Henri Paul's spurious blood sample - on which the inquest verdict was ultimately based - was taken from a vial labelled "unknown male" and contained such excessive levels of carbon monoxide that six of the world's most eminent forensic scientists have sworn that it could not have belonged to Henri Paul. 

Jon King and John Beveridge's book backs up the claims of French journalist Chris Lafaille, who, in his documentary "Diana, the never-published investigation", already doubted the official version, as did former MI6 agent Richard Tomlinson. At the highest levels of the British state, the French state and the American state, they wanted to get rid of Diana Spencer. 

Although there is still no concrete evidence, or direct testimony, Lady Diana was under particular surveillance by MI6 long before she was eliminated. 

Lady Diana was pregnant by Dr Hasnat Khan, her lover of many years. The clinic of her doctor, Dr. George Pinker, where she had gone to consult before leaving for France when she was eight months pregnant, had been broken into. Dr. Pinker's work computer, in his Harley Street office, had disappeared...

But the geopolitical context of the investigation, in addition to the "anomalies" of the official inquiry, raises questions not only about the role of Queen Elizabeth and the British government, but of the French DGSE, the CIA and the Bush-Cheney clan in the elimination of the princess. 

The cause of Diana's death lies in the fact that, in Angola, she had denounced the use of landmines and the Western arms business on the dark continent. Conflicts in Africa are fuelled by a murky business: oil and "dirty" diamonds in exchange for the Western weapons that equip rival clans. The business of arms supplied by the Western powers -USA, UK, France- in exchange for oil and African diamonds was threatened by Lady Diana's media indignation. The princess denounced this business and was compiling a dossier containing the names of high-level British politicians and businessmen involved in these criminal activities. Jon King and John Beveridge received information from members of the services that Lady Diana's media gesticulations were putting her "in danger." So it was Lady Diana's activism in Africa, rather than her exotic love affairs, that motivated her execution. 

Today, Russia has consolidated its position as the leading arms supplier to sub-Saharan Africa. Russia has regained its position as the leading arms seller in Africa, surpassing China, according to a report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (Sipri). Angola, Nigeria and Mali are still the main buyers, and their children the victims, of this infamous trade. Lady Di is no longer here to denounce it. 


Operation Northwoods

In 1962, at the height of the Cold War, General Lyman L. Lemnitzer, Chief of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, devised a plan to start a war against Cuba by unleashing terrorist acts against the American population. Operation Northwoods heralded the World Trade Center...

Northwoods planned simulated terrorist attacks against American civilians, including shootings, bombings and hijackings. Rumors were spread, underground radios were used, uniformed "Cubans" organized an attack on an American base, and so on. The aim was to arouse American anger against Castro and communism, in order to justify a military invasion of Cuba.

An uprising of the Cuban population against Fidel Castro was unlikely, contrary to what the US military told John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Castro's popularity was, on the contrary, strong among the Cuban public. Lemnitzer and the military recommended the operation to strengthen their influence and power in the Kennedy administration. 

Operation Mongoose

After the failure of the Bay of Pigs operation, Washington authorized Operation Mongoose, led by the Pentagon, to keep up the pressure on Cuba. Operation Mongoose, also known as "The Cuban Project", aimed to destabilize and overthrow Fidel Castro's Cuban government. Launched under the administration of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, it was officially authorized by President John F. Kennedy on November 30, 1961, following the abject failure of the Bay of Pigs operation.

Operation Mongoose was a direct response to Castro's rise to power in Cuba and his close ties with the Soviet Union, which constituted a violation of Western Hemisphere policy. Moongoose included covert sabotage operations, intelligence activities, propaganda campaigns and assassination attempts on Cuban leaders.

The operation involved the CIA, the Pentagon and other intelligence agencies, in a coordinated campaign to weaken Castro's government and create a climate conducive to regime overthrow.

However, despite the efforts of Operation Mongoose, Castro remained in power and the strained relationship between the USA and Cuba persisted for decades. The aim of this series of spy actions was to discredit the Cuban government and bring about its collapse.

Operation Northwoods

Operation Northwoods involved attacks on the American population. It was a false-flag operation in the spirit of the sinking of the Maine in 1898. The mysterious explosion aboard the battleship Maine in Havana harbor, which killed 266 American soldiers, was blamed on the Spanish. This triggered the Spanish-American War and the unofficial annexation of Cuba by the Americans until its independence on May 20, 1902.

In 2001, when the documents were declassified, and former ABC News investigative reporter James Bamford uncovered them under the code name OPERATION NORTHWOODS, Bush administration government officials continued to deny the very existence of the operation...

The story could have taken a dramatic turn had President Kennedy not categorically rejected these diabolical plans, a categorical refusal which was one of the motives for his assassination just over a year later. 

This affair underlines the importance of checks and balances in a democracy. Operation Northwoods, the World Trade Center attacks and the COVID crisis illustrate the need for constant citizen surveillance, an actively independent press and an honest political class. Yes, we're off to a bad start...


Roosevelt's betrayal at Pearl Harbor

The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 was a tragedy that profoundly affected the history of the United States and the world. This devastating attack, carried out by the Japanese army against the Pearl Harbor naval base in Hawaii, was presented as the event that precipitated the United States' entry into the Second World War. In fact, it was a manipulative American operation.

On the Sunday morning of December 7, 1941, Japanese Admiral Chuichi Nagumo launched his attack, which destroyed nearly 200 American aircraft, sank five battleships and damaged three cruisers, three destroyers and three auxiliary vessels. 2,476 American servicemen and civilians were killed. Emotions in the American public authorized Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration to declare war on Tokyo.

In fact, Pentagon analysts had drawn up an eight-point plan, known as the "McCollum Memo", designed to provoke a Japanese attack. The plan included military provocations and a recommendation for a total embargo on trade and oil deliveries to Japan. A similar embargo was enforced by the British Empire, led by Winston Churchill, who hoped for American help in the war, which was off to a bad start for the UK.

Admiral Richmond Turner hoped, on July 22, 1941, that stopping American oil supplies to Japan would quickly lead to an invasion of the Dutch East Indies. It seemed certain that Japan would take military action in the Philippines, engaging America in a war in the Pacific. The American provocation plan, the McCollum Memo, thus forced Japan to seize Indonesia's oil and mineral resources in order to survive economically. To reach Indonesia, Japan had to attack the American fleet at Pearl Harbor.

Station H

On November 24, 1941, Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto sent a radio message to Admiral Chuichi Nagumo, commander of the Pacific shock fleet: "The intervention force, whose movements will remain strictly secret and which will be closely watched by our submarines and aircraft, will advance into Hawaiian waters and, as soon as hostilities begin, will attack the main force of the American fleet in Hawaii and deal it a mortal blow.

deal it a mortal blow.

This message was intercepted in Hawaii, at a radio intercept station known as "Station H", overlooking Kaneohe Bay on the island of Oahu. The information was relayed to Lieutenant Commander George Pease of the Office of Naval Intelligence on December 4, 1941, three days before the attack.

President Roosevelt's only response was to order the older ships lined up in the harbor and the aircraft nose-to-nose. Newer ships and aircraft were removed from the harbor.

The Roosevelt administration was therefore aware of Japanese intentions before the attack. Despite this, no significant measures were taken to prevent the attack or protect the naval base personnel. Roosevelt left many people in the dark about what his administration was up to. Even some of his own commanders in Hawaii knew nothing about it. 

American citizens sacrificed

The 7,000 American citizens in the Philippines were denied the passports and travel documents that would have allowed them to flee. They were then captured by the Japanese and detained in camps. They were thus prevented from leaving, before the Japanese attack, while the Washington government encouraged the evacuation of Americans in China and Southeast Asia. The doyen of Scotland's daily newspapers, the Scotsman, even reported that hundreds of POWs in the Philippines had been deliberately prevented from leaving the country on the orders of the American president, in order to inflame American opinion. Marcia Fee Achenbach, one of those captured in the Philippines, discovered documents from Francis Sayre, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, in the national archives: Orders were given to officials not to issue passports to American citizens.

In August 2002, a 78-foot (23-meter) Japanese mini-submarine, designed to carry two men, was discovered a few miles from Pearl Harbor. The vessel had been sunk by the destroyer USS Ward, a few hours before the Japanese aerial bombardment. No one in Pearl Harbor had been informed.

This affair demonstrates the methods of the American empire in manipulating events to achieve its ends at the cost of its own people, whether in the Second World War, the Gulf War, Afghanistan, pandemics or the approaching Third World War. We know.

Afghanistan, well done Uncle Sam...

For years, Muslim fundamentalists have been aided by Pakistani (and American) intelligence services in their fight for control of Afghanistan. Like their predecessors in power between 1996 and 2001, the current Taliban are almost all from the Pashtun ethnic group, dominant in southern Afghanistan and neighboring north-western Pakistan. Today, the Pashtun Taliban are the masters of Afghanistan, and they in turn are supporting Muslim fundamentalists to take over Pakistan.

According to UN sources, the Afghan Taliban are currently providing increasing support to the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), a terrorist group operating mainly in Pakistan. Reports indicate that the Taliban have established eight new training camps in Afghanistan, where they provide training to TTP militants.

The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) itself maintains close links with several affiliated terrorist groups: Al-Qaeda, Lashkar-e-Islam and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. All of them are strengthening their operational capacity and strategic reach. 

The Afghan Taliban have close ties with regional affiliate Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), which is allied to the TTP. Relations between the two organizations date back to the early years of the TTP's formation. Al-Qaeda has provided financial, logistical and ideological support to the TTP, enabling it to carry out large-scale terrorist operations in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Al-Qaeda members were often integrated into the ranks of the TTP, facilitating operational cooperation between the two entities. Al-Qaeda training camps and operational bases in Afghanistan have also served as safe havens for TTP militants, enabling them to plan and execute cross-border attacks.

Lashkar-e-Islam, based in the tribal regions of Pakistan, is mainly active in the Khyber district. The group has been involved in terrorist activities and clashes with Pakistani security forces. Links between the TTP and Lashkar-e-Islam are manifested in operational collaboration. Together, they have carried out coordinated attacks against Pakistani security forces and sought to extend their influence in the tribal regions. 

Lashkar-e-Jhangvi operates in Pakistan. It is mainly involved in attacks against the country's Shiite minority. The TTP maintains links with Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, taking advantage of its knowledge of the terrain. Together, they have carried out targeted attacks against civilians and religious minorities, exacerbating sectarian tensions in Pakistan. Collaboration between the TTP and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi threatens Pakistan's national security and stability.

This collaboration between the Afghan Taliban and fundamentalist groups in the region raises major security concerns, particularly for Pakistan. The TTP has already carried out numerous deadly attacks against Pakistani security forces and civilians. The continued support of the Afghan Taliban is likely to further aggravate the security situation in the region.

In geopolitical terms, this cooperation highlights the pitiful results of the US invasion of Afghanistan and its historic support for the most radical jihadist groups. In the name of the fight against communism, Washington has supplied the bearded men with weapons, military training and funding for decades. The occupation of Afghanistan by over-equipped "boys", unprepared for the realities on the ground, until August 2021, only served to drive the population into the arms of the Taliban. 

Having consolidated their power in Afghanistan, the Godless are now preparing to take over Pakistan. Bravo, Pentagon strategists...


Myanmar would like to be left in peace

Myanmar faces the growing influence of China, ethnic conflicts in border areas, and geopolitical rivalries between India and the United States. These players are seeking to counter China's growing influence in the region, at the cost of stability in Myanmar as it seeks to rebuild itself after decades of military rule. 

The rise of Chinese influence

China's massive investment in the Burmese economy is raising concerns about Myanmar's growing dependence on its neighbor. The Shwe Kokko Special Economic Zone, Huanya International City and Saixigang Industrial Zone, located near the Myanmar-Thailand border, and the New Silk Road, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which includes road, rail and port construction, are concrete examples of China's efforts to extend its economic influence in the region.

Ethnic tensions and internal instability

The Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA) and other rebel factions have long fought for self-determination and recognition of their cultural and territorial rights in Burma. These demands have often been met with violent repression by the central authorities, destabilizing the border regions.

China, as Myanmar's influential neighbor, maintains relations with these rebel groups. China seeks to protect its economic and security interests in the region by cultivating ties with certain ethnic groups, particularly those controlling strategic border areas for trade and natural resources. But Beijing maintains stable relations with Myanmar's central government to safeguard its regional geopolitical objectives.

Regional rivalries and external pressure

Geopolitical rivalries between India and China, as well as ongoing intervention by the United States, further complicate Myanmar's situation. India, as an emerging regional power, is seeking to strengthen its ties with Myanmar. New Delhi sees Myanmar as a key partner in its strategy of influence in the Southeast Asian region to counter China's rise to power. India has therefore developed economic, military and diplomatic relations with Myanmar, notably by supporting the construction of roads and bridges to improve connectivity between the two countries.

Relations between the United States and Myanmar have become tumultuous due to American rhetoric on human rights and democracy in the country. Washington has had to soften its stance in recent years to avoid losing its influence in the country once and for all.

In the face of these external pressures, Myanmar must navigate carefully to avoid jeopardizing its relations with China. But, understandably, the aim of the authorities in Naypyidaw, the new capital that has just replaced Rangoon, remains to choose their destiny independently.


Death squads in Colombia.

Since 2021, Colombia has been rocked by massive anti-government protests, met by brutal police repression. The Escuadrones Móviles Antidisturbios (ESMAD), militarized police units, are the instrument of this violence, leaving a trail of injury and death. 

Colombia has been in turmoil since April 28, 2021, following the Paro Nacional (general strike) in response to tax and other reforms affecting the health and pension systems. Faced with these unpopular measures, the population rose up in massive demonstrations.

The Colombian government's response was brutal. The ESMAD, the Escuadrones Móviles Antidisturbios, militarized police units known for their excessive violence, were given carte blanche.

Thousands of victims

The figures speak for themselves: as of May 10, 2021, there were 980 reported disappearances, 962 arbitrary arrests, 1,443 victims of police violence, 111 cases of firearms used against civilians, 16 cases of sexual abuse perpetrated by the forces of law and order, and sadly, 47 deaths, including 37 demonstrators killed by the police or ESMADs on the very first day of the mobilizations.

A total of 63 people were murdered during demonstrations linked to the general strike: 34 by the police and ESMAD, 10 by armed civilians and 19 without identified perpetrators. 67 people were seriously injured, 51 by the police and ESMAD, and 16 by armed civilian groups.

The history of ESMAD

The Escuadrones Móviles Antidisturbios were created on February 24, 1999. Initially, these squadrons were intended to be temporary, set up as part of a plan to modernize the national police force. They were to "support departments and metropolitan police forces in the management and control of crowds and public spectacles".

However, on April 14, 1999, the Director General of Police decided to make the mobile riot squadrons permanent, and they became the central body for maintaining law and order in Colombia's main regions.

Despite numerous complaints from human rights organizations, the ESMAD continued to crack down, even increasing their numbers to a total of 3,876 police officers in October 2019, multiplying their initial strength by 18 in the twenty years of their existence. NGOs and the independent press are quick to dub them "death squads".

A history of atrocities

Between 1999 and 2019, the ESMAD killed 18 people in Bogotá, including eleven students and a minor. Victims were often beaten to death or succumbed to allegedly "non-lethal" weapons such as tear gas, ball projectiles used for policing, or other "unconventional weapons" such as batteries, screws, marbles, or explosive liquids.

Atrocities have also been committed in the country's rural areas. The 2013 agricultural strike was marked by incessant ESMAD attacks, which resulted in 660 individual or collective human rights violations, 262 arbitrary arrests, 485 injuries (including 21 by gunshot), 52 cases of harassment and threats, listed by several independent sources.

In the face of such police violence, Colombians are calling for the immediate dissolution of the ESMAD. At this very moment, Colombia is facing a major crisis, with peaceful demonstrations being put down in bloodshed.

Indian Ocean, a major geopolitical challenge

The new balance of power in the Indian Ocean is changing. The United States is no longer the dominant maritime power, but it will remain a major player. China and India are emerging as major maritime powers, while Russia is investing in the south.


The Indian Ocean, long neglected in global geopolitical concerns, is becoming a central player in the geo-economic and geopolitical arena. This transformation is the result of the development of a corridor linking Bombay to Moscow, as well as the repercussions of the war in Ukraine on Russia's economic orientations.

The Bombay-Moscow corridor is an infrastructure project that dates back several years. It has recently been revitalized and is becoming a central element of the region's geo-economy. The corridor crosses the overland Silk Road linking China to Europe, and its development promises to boost trade and investment in the region.

The importance of this corridor lies in the fact that it will enable countries such as Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan to export their products to the Middle East, India and even Europe via land routes. This will create new economic opportunities and foster significant growth in these countries. What's more, with a combined regional population of over 2 billion, the area's development potential could rival China's rise to prominence in recent decades.

The war in Ukraine has forced Russia to redirect its exports eastwards and southwards, bringing about significant changes in trade flows and economic partnerships. In particular, Russia began selling a large proportion of its products to China in renminbi, the Chinese currency.

This transition has strengthened economic ties between Russia and China, two major players in the region. It has also led to an increase in China's foreign exchange earnings, consolidating its position as a global economic power. At the same time, Russia has accumulated substantial foreign exchange reserves, which it now uses to import goods from China, replacing imports previously sourced from Europe.

Taken together, these geo-economic developments represent a major shift in the world's geo-economy. The Indian Ocean, once considered a peripheral region, is becoming a central player in global economic growth. Growth rates in countries along the Bombay-Moscow corridor are experiencing unprecedented expansion, and are set to last for decades.

While global economic growth was once centered on the Pacific Ocean, it is now more likely to be concentrated on the Indian Ocean. This region has become the new epicenter of trade and investment, with important consequences for international relations, business partnerships and geopolitical dynamics.

A strategic position

The importance of the Indian Ocean lies in its strategic position, its wealth of natural resources, and its essential role in international trade. The Indian Ocean lies at the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Australia, making it a strategic hub for global business. It is bordered by many countries, including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, East Africa, Saudi Arabia and Australia. This strategic position makes it a focal point for the geopolitical interests of several world powers, including the USA, China, Russia, India and European countries.

The Indian Ocean is rich in natural resources essential to the global economy. It is home to more than half of the world's hydrocarbon and uranium reserves. These resources are crucial for energy production, chemical manufacturing and transport propulsion.

The region is also endowed with mineral resources such as diamonds, gold and natural gas. These resources are exploited in the coastal countries of the Indian Ocean, contributing to their economic development and regional influence.

Last but not least, the Indian Ocean is one of the world's largest commercial maritime highways. Almost 30% of world trade passes through its waters, making it a vital transport route for the global economy. Shipping routes linking Europe and Asia pass through the Indian Ocean, enabling the transport of goods, raw materials and crude oil between producing regions and consumer markets.

The Indian Ocean is home to some of the world's busiest shipping routes, such as the Strait of Malacca, the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and the Suez Canal, all of which are of crucial importance to international trade. Any disruption in these areas has major repercussions for the global economy.

For China, the Indian Ocean represents access to oil.

China is actively seeking to strengthen its presence in this region because of its growing dependence on its maritime routes for imports of hydrocarbons and other essential raw materials. 

China is the world's largest importer of hydrocarbons, and a large proportion of these imports come from countries in the Persian Gulf and East Africa. To bring these vital resources to its shores, China depends mainly on the Strait of Malacca, one of the world's narrowest and most strategic shipping lanes. Some 80% of China's hydrocarbon imports pass through this strait.

To protect its energy supply interests, China has invested heavily in the Indian Ocean. This includes ports, oil terminals, pipelines and transport infrastructure in countries such as Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and even East Africa. The New Silk Road, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), seeks to link China to Europe by land and sea.

China has also established maritime bases in the region, notably in Djibouti, where it has a military base. China's military presence in the Indian Ocean is raising concerns among its neighbors and rival Western powers, who are witnessing the extension of China's strategic influence in the region.

China's expansion into the Indian Ocean is causing concern in India, which sees it as an intrusion into its traditional sphere of influence. The United States is also angered by this rise in Chinese power and what it portends for the global rebalancing of power.

India's response

In response to China's rise to power in the Indian Ocean, India is strengthening its own presence in the region. India seeks to protect its national interests and maintain its influence in this vital geostrategic region. 

India has increased its military spending and modernized its armed forces to improve its ability to meet security challenges in the Indian Ocean. New Delhi has acquired state-of-the-art warships, submarines, fighter jets and other advanced military equipment. The aim is to deter potential threats and defend its maritime interests.

India has sought to establish strategic military bases in the region to reinforce its maritime presence. For example, it has a military base in Andaman and Nicobar, in the Strait of Malacca, on a major transit route for world maritime trade. India is cooperating with friendly countries to gain access to military port facilities across the Indian Ocean, with the aim of extending its reach and intervention capability.

Also to counter China's growing influence, India has sought to strengthen its alliances and partnerships with the USA, France and other Western powers, notably within the framework of the "Quad" (Quadrilateral Security Dialogue), which also includes Japan and Australia. This initiative aims, again and again, to counter China's hegemonic ambitions.

India has launched several major infrastructure projects in the Indian Ocean region, including the Chabahar port project in Iran, located near the Strait of Hormuz. This port offers India direct access to Afghanistan and Central Asia, bypassing Pakistan. 

India is actively pursuing trade agreements with Indian Ocean countries to facilitate trade and stimulate economic growth. The India-ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Free Trade Agreement, for example, promotes trade between India and ASEAN member countries. India is also a member of the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) and the Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC). 

New Delhi has strengthened its trade relations with South Africa, Sri Lanka, the Maldives and the United Arab Emirates, among others. Bilateral economic partnerships enable India to diversify its sources of raw materials and export manufactured goods.

India is also investing in the improvement and expansion of port infrastructures at Colombo in Sri Lanka, Duqm in Oman, and Chittagong in Bangladesh, which have become key milestones in India's strategy to strengthen its economic presence in the region.

Several countries in the Indian Ocean region are, however, in territorial dispute. The ongoing dispute between India and China over the Himalayan border has strategic implications, although not directly in the maritime region. 

Territorial claims in the South China Sea involve islands, atolls and maritime areas rich in natural resources, including oil and gas deposits, important fishing grounds, and strategic shipping routes. In response to Chinese expansionism in the South China Sea, many riparian countries have turned to partnerships with outside powers, notably the United States, to bolster their security and ability to resist Chinese pressure. 

Disputes in the South China Sea have raised concerns about freedom of navigation and respect for international law, in particular the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). The United States has conducted freedom of navigation operations in the region to defend these principles. These actions are perceived as provocative by China.

The South China Sea is a key passageway for global maritime trade, including a large proportion of Chinese imports and Asian exports. Tensions in this region are prompting China to seek alternative routes, including those across the Indian Ocean, to guarantee the continuity of its supplies of hydrocarbons and goods.

The Indian Ocean is home to terrorist groups such as Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQPA) and Al-Shabaab in Somalia. These groups exploit the weaknesses of coastal states and take advantage of regional tensions to carry out terrorist operations. The fight against terrorism in the region is therefore a major concern for many players, who are conducting counter-terrorism operations in the Gulf of Aden and the Horn of Africa.

The Indian Ocean has been the scene of maritime piracy, particularly in the Gulf of Aden. Somali pirates attacked commercial vessels. Although piracy has declined in recent years, it remains a potential challenge to the safety of ships and international trade in the region.

Competition for control of major trade routes in the Indian Ocean is a major source of tension. The Strait of Malacca, the Strait of Bab-el-Mandeb and the Suez Canal are crucial passages for international trade, particularly for the supply of oil and goods. China, India, the United States and regional players could very well start a major conflict there in the next few weeks.


A James Bond eliminated by MI6?

Gareth Williams, an analyst at the UK's Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), excelled at tracking terrorist networks and dirty money on behalf of the British government. He had even been transferred to MI6 to carry out high-level hacking on missions of interest to the National Security Agency (NSA). But something didn't sit right with him - he wanted out of MI6. 

In August 2010, his naked, curled-up body was found in a large, padlocked sports bag in his bathroom. The multiple obstructions to the investigation and the absurdity of the official conclusions point to an execution by MI6.

The circumstances surrounding Gareth Williams' death remain troubling. The exact date of his death, in the early hours of August 16, was not established until his body was discovered a week later. MI6, for whom he worked, waited (conveniently) a week for any biological clues to emerge, before notifying the police of Williams' absence. Objects disappeared from the apartment. The police investigation oscillated between various theories, ranging from murder to erotic games gone wrong...

Murder was the obvious hypothesis. Specialists in contortionism demonstrated that Williams could not have entered the bag and locked himself in. Everything suggests the intervention of third parties. Yet there are no clues, not even Williams' fingerprints. Everything was cleaned up and the search for a couple of suspects of "Mediterranean origin" who had been spotted entering Williams' building was abandoned.

Williams was gay. A wardrobe containing women's clothing, high-heeled shoes and wigs was discovered in Williams' spare bedroom, pointing to a penchant for cross-dressing. But apart from marginalizing his character and directing public opinion away from the nature of his missions, this had no bearing on the circumstances of his death. 

We also found traces of visits to bondage websites on his computer. This pointed to the practice of sexual games, in connection with the fact that his body was found in a closed bag. A former neighbor conveniently claimed to have found him tied to her bed one day...

Once again, Williams was working in the world of hacking for MI6 and the NSA. The facts were that Williams wanted to leave MI6, that something didn't feel right. Neighborhood surveillance videos showed a guy with a passion for cycling, a love of nature, living a completely normal life. Williams was not the "twisted madwoman" they tried to make her out to be. The hypothesis that this wardrobe could have been placed there opportunely, or that bondage sites could have been installed on her computer to discredit her profile, were not exploited. And yet, character assassination is the basis of the business.

A Russian trick...

The events took place in the UK. It was obviously suggested that Williams had been assassinated by the SVR, the Russian foreign intelligence service. Williams might have discovered the identity of a Russian double agent within the British services or refused to become a double agent, which would have motivated his elimination by the Russians. The idea of a lethal injection into the ear, with a poison rapidly dissipating in the body, was advanced without any proof by a turned Russian spy, conveniently ready to tell what MI6 wanted him to tell. As the police investigation, tightly controlled by MI6, indicated that Williams was investigating money-laundering networks used by Russian criminal groups, the culprits were obvious. Public alarm was raised about the safety of British intelligence agents even on British soil, and so on.

The investigation was manipulated and placed under close surveillance on Washington's orders. Initially considered a murder, the case was finally stubbornly classified as an accident, despite the material impossibility. Williams' family, the police officer in charge of the case and a large part of public opinion are not fooled. British intelligence services have suppressed evidence and manipulated the crime scene to protect their secrets. 

Inconsistencies in the investigation

The investigation had been closely monitored. It was initially accepted that Williams' death was "likely to have been the result of criminal mediation", before the Metropolitan Police finally officially concluded that Williams' death was "probably an accident". 

Williams' family rejects this accident hypothesis. They are convinced that British intelligence services secretly visited Williams' apartment and erased all traces before notifying the police. 

Williams, initially an analyst at Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), the UK government department responsible for signals intelligence and information systems security, had been seconded to MI6.

Officially, police arrived at Williams' home on the afternoon of Monday August 23, 2010, after Williams' colleagues reported that he had not been seen for several days.

Williams' family claims that DNA traces that could have provided crucial information had been altered, and that fingerprints left at the scene had been erased. Inconclusive fragments of DNA components from at least two other people were reportedly found on the bag. But the official investigation had found no signs of forced entry and no DNA indicating a third party present at the time of the spy's death. The family's lawyer, Anthony O'Toole, at the coroner's inquest, the criminal investigation officer, in March 2012, had claimed that a second person must have been present when Williams died, or that someone had broken in afterwards and stolen items. But no forensic evidence was found to support this hypothesis. No sign of forced entry was officially found. It was simply noted that the front door had been mysteriously removed at the same time as the police experts had intervened... 

Tricks of the trade

This case is worthy of a spy novel. Although Williams was not originally a spy in the technical sense of the word, he became one when he joined an operational department within MI6. He worked with agents from the US National Security Agency (NSA) and the FBI. So, right from the start of the investigation, the heads of British intelligence and the Metropolitan Police met to "work out" how the police would conduct the investigation. The personnel who would lead the investigation had been carefully selected. The US State Department had ordered that no details of Williams' work should be revealed during the investigation. The Foreign Secretary, William Hague, even had to give orders that details of Williams' work in connection with joint US operations were to be elided.

Scotland Yard therefore claimed to have found no fingerprints of Williams on the bag lock or on the edge of the bathtub. According to the coroner, this supported the theory of "third-party involvement" in the death. In fact, the police had even published an E-FIT (digital robot portrait) photo of two suspicious individuals who had been seen entering the lobby of Williams' home in July 2010.

Scotland Yard claimed, however, that the DNA found on Williams' hand was merely a "contamination" from one of the forensic scientists, and the police declared that the "Mediterranean couple" they were initially looking for had nothing to do with the investigation. LGC , the forensic company that had initially found traces, apologized, claiming that it was all a mistake, caused by "the incorrect entry of a numerical code"...

The Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Martin Hewitt, eventually dismissed any criminal trail, claiming that it remained "theoretically possible" for Williams to get into the bag without touching the edge of the bathtub. It should be pointed out that the key to the padlock which closed the bag was located inside the bag, under Williams' body... 

The investigation showed that it would have been virtually impossible for Williams to lock himself in the bag. Two experts had failed to lock themselves in a similar bag despite 400 attempts to do so. 

Pathologist Richard Shepherd said it was more likely that Williams was alive when he entered the bag, due to the difficulty of disposing of a corpse in the position in which Williams' body was found. Another pathologist had concluded that Williams had died of hypercapnia, carbon dioxide poisoning in the blood, after only two or three minutes in the bag. 

Nobody believes the official theory.

The coroner remains convinced that Gareth Williams was killed, that someone placed the bag containing Williams in the bathtub and locked the bag. The coroner believes that Williams was alive when he was placed in the bag and that he probably died, shortly afterwards, by asphyxiation or poisoning with a short-acting poison. No fingerprints were found around the bathtub or the bag, as if professionals had cleaned the area. 

The coroner criticized British intelligence for waiting seven days before reporting Williams' disappearance, which contributed to the disappearance of forensic evidence. 

The coroner rejected the motives of suicide, accident due to particular sexual mores and condemned cross-dressing theories as a possible attempt at media manipulation. 

The coroner was highly critical of the Metropolitan Police's Counter-Terrorism Command (SO15) for failing to inform him of the nine USB sticks and other important items missing from the Williams' office. Nor did SO15 pass on any report of its talks with Williams' colleagues to MI6. The coroner declared that the involvement of SIS staff in Williams' death was a "legitimate" line of inquiry for the police. 

Everyone understood that there was a catch to this story. Incidentally, the 2015 BBC 2 TV series "London Spy" tells the story of a secret MI6 agent found dead in a locked safe...


The global oligarchy chooses Latin America in 2024

Latin America seems to be undergoing major political changes, with the election of Javier Milei in Argentina, for example, or the attraction of several Latin American countries to the BRICS. But these are just facades. In fact, the region is preparing to become home to the powerful capitalists who are currently plunging the world into global nuclear war.

In November 2023, Argentina elected Javier Milei as its new president. This election created a media buzz. Javier Milei promises to abolish the Argentine Central Bank, a central institution in the country's monetary and financial control for decades. The Argentine president also wants to dollarize the Argentine economy, abandoning, in a word, the national currency, the Argentine peso, in favor of the U.S. dollar as the country's official currency claims to stabilize the Argentine economy, combat high inflation and attract foreign investment by creating a more predictable and stable monetary environment. Milei seems unaware that the dollar is on the brink of collapse itself.

High inflation is, indeed, a recurring problem in Latin America, often exceeding 40% a year, and a constant threat to people's purchasing power. The frequent devaluation of the Argentine peso creates uncertainty for businesses and investors, hampering the country's economic development.

The abolition of the Central Bank could compromise the government's ability to regulate the economy and respond to financial crises. Dollarization also means a loss of monetary sovereignty for Argentina. 

Milei's style is likely to create tensions with Joe Biden's administration. But in fact, Milei remains an ardent defender of economic liberalism, which suits American interests perfectly. Could Milei be a creature of Washington, adopting an extreme oratorical style only to win power?

In neighboring Brazil, President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, commonly known as Lula, also takes positions on the war in Ukraine and the conflict in Gaza that challenge the ready-thinking. During his previous presidential term, Lula had already brought his country into the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa). 

His apparent support for Russia could lead to disagreements with Joe Biden's administration in the United States, but this should not obscure the essential point: like Milei in Argentina, Lula pursues an ultraliberal policy and also wishes to dollarize the country's economy. Once again, electoral bravado seems to conceal a total submission to Washington's interests. 

Regional conspiracies

Central America, Colombia and the Amazon are certainly experiencing droughts that are impacting agriculture and food production. Other regions, such as northern Mexico, Paraguay, Uruguay and parts of Argentina, have experienced intense rainfall. Latin American countries are having to adapt to these new, unpredictable weather conditions.

But these difficulties affect the whole planet, and in 2024, Latin America remains the focus of the billionaires who make and break our world. The region outperformed economic forecasts by recording economic growth of 2.2%, exceeding the 1.7% initially anticipated. This better-than-expected economic performance is a magnet for international finance in Latin America.

However, the region remains confronted with high inflation, which is having a negative impact on economic stability and citizens' purchasing power. Economic growth in 2024, higher than forecast in 2023, is a positive indicator, which may help to partially control inflation by stabilizing domestic demand.

Frequent currency devaluation, on the other hand, destabilizes the economy and discourages foreign investment. Here again, better-than-expected economic growth in 2023 is restoring investor confidence by creating a more predictable economic environment. 

Several Latin American countries are likely to re-elect their leaders, if only because their elections are controlled by globalist interests. In fact, Latin America is settling into the role of spectator in 2024. In a world beset by growing international tensions, the region is becoming a haven of stability by comparison. International investors are looking for safe havens for their capital and themselves, sheltered from international conflict. 

Patagonia is a region rich in fresh water and untouched by extreme temperatures - it's where the future of the planet lies. That's why, despite restrictive laws at the time, British billionaire Joe Lewis, the Benetton family and Ted Turner illegally acquired vast tracts of land in the region in the 1990s. The arrival in power of ultraliberal and climate-skeptic President Javier Milei, on December 29, conveniently removed the obstacle of the protective laws that strictly regulated land ownership and limited land acquisitions by foreigners.

Among the more than 300 laws amended or repealed by this decree, one of them was Law 26.737, commonly known as the "Ley de tierras" (Land Law), in force since 2011. The aim of this law was to protect rural land by limiting foreign ownership of this land, as well as their investment in the agricultural sector. Prior to these changes, a maximum of 15% of national and provincial land could be owned by foreigners, and the acquisition of more than a thousand hectares in the central agricultural zone, the country's most productive, was prohibited for foreigners. This policy was aimed at ensuring that the country's main export products remained largely in Argentine hands, thus contributing to the country's foreign currency reserves.

The law also prohibited the ownership or exploitation of land bordering rivers and real estate located in border security zones. The repeal of the Ley de tierras opens the way for the billionaires of the oligarchy to buy land in Argentina without any limits. 

As in 14-18 and 39-45, Latin America is once again a destination for investment and exile for the rich and powerful, in Patagonia for example. Everyone knows that when war breaks out in Europe, Latin America, like other regions far removed from the conflicts between the great powers, will be the breadbasket for food and the supplier of minerals. Only this time, the United States will be wiped out.

Asia, a strategic region for global business. 

Among the Asian nations playing an increasingly important role on the world stage, India is positioning itself as an emerging power with remarkable economic potential. Despite the challenges of the caste system, socio-economic inequalities and religious diversity, Narendra Modi's country has undertaken major tax reforms, modernized its infrastructure and launched the "Make in India" initiative to attract foreign investment and promote local manufacturing. By 2021, India has recorded economic growth of around 9.5%.

Vietnam has also achieved a remarkable economic transformation since its transition to a market economy in the 1990s. Relations with the United States were normalized in 1995. Vietnam now serves as a bulwark against Chinese expansion in the South China Sea. 

North Korea, meanwhile, oscillates between its economic dependence on China and its desire for independence based on the "Juche" ideology. Reunification of the Korean peninsula remains dependent on normalization of relations with the United States.

Finally, the economic war between the USA and China is expressed in the debate on intellectual property rights and the Indo-Pacific strategy, advocated by the USA and Japan, to contain China. The Taiwan Strait issue remains a major point of tension.

India's quest for economic leadership

India, although hampered by its caste system, socio-economic inequalities and linguistic and religious diversity, has the potential to catch up with its Chinese neighbor. To do so, it is modernizing its infrastructure while maintaining its political system. Prime Minister Narendra Modi favors Hindu nationalism as the driving force, but India's success will largely depend on its ability to consolidate and develop its economy. As the world's largest democracy, India has a crucial role to play in the geopolitical balance of the region. This vast country is one of the world's fastest-growing economies. In 2021, despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, its GDP grew by around 9.5%. It's easy to understand its economic potential.

The Indian government has introduced major tax reforms, including the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in 2017. This reform aims to unify the domestic market, thereby promoting economic growth and facilitating business.

The "Make in India" initiative launched in 2014 aims to encourage local manufacturing and attract foreign investment. Several international companies have already invested heavily in India, strengthening the country's manufacturing sector.

India is a major player in the information technology and services industry. The IT and software sector represents a significant part of its economy, generating substantial revenues and creating jobs.

Although India faces socio-economic inequalities, it has made significant progress in reducing poverty. According to World Bank data, India's poverty rate has fallen considerably in recent years.

 India is investing heavily in infrastructure development, particularly in the transport, energy and telecommunications sectors. These investments are helping to stimulate economic growth and improve regional connectivity.

As the world's largest democracy, India plays a crucial role in the geopolitical balance of the region. It maintains diplomatic relations with many world powers and actively participates in international forums such as the G20 and the BRICS.

Despite these achievements, India must overcome the challenges of corruption and bureaucracy, and improve education and access to healthcare for its entire population. The country's cultural and linguistic diversity also remains a challenge to promoting national unity.

Vietnam and North Korea: independent players

Vietnam and North Korea have a history of resistance to foreign oppression, and maintain nationalist positions of independence. Vietnam has been an ally of the United States since 1995, through its transition to a market economy and its policy of openness. It serves as Washington's bulwark against Chinese expansion in the South China Sea. The evolution of relations between Vietnam and the United States since 1995 is an astonishing story that reflects significant changes in geopolitical dynamics in Asia. To better understand this evolution, we need to go back to the end of the Vietnam War. The Vietnam War, which ended in 1975, resulted in the reunification of the country under a Communist government. Relations between the United States and Vietnam remained tense for decades, in the context of the war's aftermath and ideological differences.

The first steps towards normalizing relations between the USA and Vietnam were taken as early as the 1980s. However, full normalization of diplomatic relations was not officially established until 1995, under the presidency of Bill Clinton.

Vietnam undertook major economic reforms in the 1980s and 1990s, known as the "Đổi Mới" (Renewal). These reforms opened Vietnam's economy to the global market, promoting economic growth and attracting foreign investment. Thanks to its economic reforms, Vietnam has enjoyed remarkable economic growth. It has become one of the fastest-growing economies in Southeast Asia, attracting the attention of foreign investors, including Americans. The United States and Vietnam have developed close economic ties. Vietnam has become an important trading partner for the United States in Southeast Asia, with bilateral trade steadily increasing.

Vietnam and the United States have also strengthened their security cooperation. This collaboration includes joint military exercises, intelligence exchanges and discussions on regional challenges, such as security in the South China Sea.

The South China Sea is a crucial geostrategic zone where China claims territorial rights that are disputed by other countries in the region, including Vietnam. The United States sees Vietnam as an essential ally in countering Chinese expansion in this region. Vietnam, as a country in the region, shares the interest in maintaining freedom of navigation and preventing conflict in the South China Sea. The strengthened relationship between the USA and Vietnam is designed to counter China's growing influence in Southeast Asia. The USA is seeking to strengthen ties with countries in the region to counter China's historic hegemony.

North Korea, for its part, oscillates between dependence on China and a desire for independence. Its "Juche" ideology reinforces national unity. 

North Korea's situation is unique and complex, oscillating between dependence on China and a desire for independence based on its "Juche" ideology." North Korea is heavily dependent on China for its supply of energy, food and other essential resources. The geographical proximity and long history of relations between the two countries make it a crucial partnership for North Korea's economic and political survival.

Juche" is the official ideology of North Korea, advocating self-sufficiency and national independence. It serves as the pillar of national unity and the legitimacy of the North Korean regime. The North Korean government insists on the need to preserve "Juche" to guarantee the country's autonomy.

The division of Korea into two distinct states, North and South Korea, is the result of the Korean War (1950-1953). Since then, the reunification of the Korean peninsula has been a goal pursued by both states, although visions of reunification vary considerably.

The extremely bitter Korean War was a traumatic experience for both Koreas and the international community. It showed that forced reunification was not viable, and would entail enormous human and economic costs. As a result, both Koreas have adopted a policy of peaceful reunification.

The normalization of relations between North Korea and the United States is crucial to achieving reunification. However, relations have been marked by ups and downs, and negotiations on denuclearization have often been at the center of international concerns. The "sunshine policy" pursued by South Korean presidents Kim Dae-jung, Roh Moo-hyun and Moon Jae-in has promoted rapprochement between the two Koreas. This approach has encouraged cultural, economic and family exchanges, strengthening ties between peoples on both sides of the border.

Despite these efforts to promote peaceful reunification, challenges remain. Ideological, economic and cultural differences between the two Koreas remain significant. Moreover, the issue of North Korea's denuclearization remains a major stumbling block in the negotiations.

The war between the USA and China

The economic war between the USA and China is having a major impact on the global economy and international relations. Intellectual property theft is a major concern in U.S.-China trade relations. Foreign companies, including American ones, have reported cases of forced technology transfer and intellectual property theft in China. These practices undermine fair competition and harm foreign companies.

The protection of intellectual property rights is essential to China's own economic development. Without adequate protection, foreign investors may be reluctant to share their technology and invest in China. If China is to continue to grow on the world stage, it must strengthen its protection of intellectual property rights.

The Export Control Reform Act (IRA) adopted by the United States aims to restrict China's rise in the semiconductor industry. However, this measure is causing concern as it has implications for companies operating in China, such as Samsung and SK, which have invested heavily in the country and operate semiconductor plants. Technological competition between the USA and China should be encouraged, as it can stimulate innovation and technological progress. However, protectionism can disrupt existing alliances and the global trade order. 

On the other hand, the Indo-Pacific strategy promoted by the United States and Japan seeks to contain China. India, Europe and South Korea, on the other hand, seek to promote freedom of navigation and trade in the region. 

The Taiwan Strait remains at the heart of tensions between the United States and China. China considers Taiwan an integral part of its territory, while Taiwan maintains its de facto independence. Addressing this issue while respecting the One China principle could help reduce military tensions with China. But the problem remains American. The American empire is not prepared to let China take its rightful place at the summit of nations. It is to be feared that Uncle Sam will use any means necessary, as demonstrated by the COVID-19 virus attack in Wuhan in November 2019, to sabotage Beijing's ascent.



2024 for Africa

From South Africa to the Horn of Africa, via Nigeria, the year 2024 will be full of tests for the continent.

In South Africa, a country that has been governed by the African National Congress (ANC) for three decades, 2024 will mark a pivotal election. The ANC faces the possibility of losing its parliamentary majority, which could lead to significant changes in the South African political landscape.

In Sudan, the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) are fighting for control of territory, with the potential consequences of splitting the country. In Ethiopia, ethnic tensions give rise to outbreaks of violence, and the situation remains precarious. Somalia continues to struggle against the militant group al-Shabab.

In Nigeria, President Bola Tinubu, who had raised hopes with bold reforms, faces difficulties in delivering on his promises to revitalize the economy. The fall in the naira and problems with oil and gas production are having an impact on the country's economic stability. Demonstrations and social tensions are on the rise, threatening national unity.

South Africa is preparing for crucial elections in 2024, postponing the liberalization of the port and rail sectors or the unbundling of the national electricity company Eskom. The African National Congress (ANC) could lose its 30-year parliamentary majority. This election marks a critical moment for South African democracy. The country has endured decades of political and social decline since the end of apartheid in 1994, when inherently corrupt politicians came to power.

Corrupt President Cyril Ramaphosa's leadership is at stake, but an opposition victory remains unlikely. The ANC still represents 40% of the vote in the name of the memory of Apartheid, and will not hesitate to form alliances with other parties, such as the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), to stay in power. The consequences will be the government's turn to the left and a foreign policy even further removed from America. With the EFF in government, Ramaphosa will resign, perhaps replaced by current Vice-President Paul Mashatile.

Epidemic of coups d'état 

Burkina Faso, Niger, Madagascar, Congo (Brazzaville), Equatorial Guinea and Uganda face growing political instability, increasing the risk of coups. In Cameroon, 90-year-old President Paul Biya is increasingly paralyzed by internal rivalries. The president's age will leave a power vacuum that the military will be eager to fill. In Nigeria, things are getting more complicated for Bola Tinubu's administration. Nigeria, Africa's economic giant, plays a crucial role in regional stability. The economic challenges facing the country in 2024, such as the falling naira and oil and gas production problems, have regional implications. The Tinubu administration is navigating tumultuous waters to maintain the economic and social stability of the country and the region. 

The funding crisis 

Financial constraints continue to be a major challenge for many African countries in 2024. High interest rates in the US are impacting borrowing costs, making it difficult for some countries to access international debt markets. China's economic slowdown and changing priorities will limit infrastructure lending to African countries.

Ethiopia's default in December 2023 illustrates the region's financial vulnerabilities. The depreciation of the Kenyan shilling against the dollar over the past year has strained public finances and made Eurobond debt relatively more expensive. Although Kenya's access to multilateral financing mitigates its debt, a rapid rise in oil prices, an inability to secure food supplies in the face of climate shocks, or a collapse in tax revenues could prevent Kenya from repaying its Eurobonds. 

Unsolvable conflicts in the Horn of Africa

The Horn of Africa faces major security challenges in 2024, particularly in Sudan, Ethiopia and Somalia. In Sudan, the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) will persist in their clashes for control of the territory, including the capital, Khartoum. In recent months, the RSF have advanced in the conflict, pushing the SAF back from most of Darfur and from strategic sites in Khartoum. This escalation of hostilities increases the likelihood of a division of the country, similar to that seen in Libya, where the RSF would dominate the west and south while the SAF would control the north and east.

The situation in Ethiopia, in particular, is worrying, with ongoing clashes between the government and insurgent groups. Ethnic tensions in Ethiopia will persist, fueling episodes of ongoing violence in the regional states of Amhara and Oromia. Insurgent groups will continue to clash with state security forces. A negotiated peace agreement between the federal authorities and insurgent groups is unlikely, maintaining an unstable and worrying security environment.

In Somalia, government efforts to combat the Islamist militant group al-Shabab will continue, but will be hampered by financial and capacity constraints as the African Union (AU) mission comes to an end. In addition, underlying clan tensions will erupt from time to time, particularly in areas bordering Puntland and Somaliland, resulting in sporadic episodes of violence.

The repercussions of a war between Ethiopia and Eritrea could be serious, not only for these two countries, but also for regional stability. Relations between Ethiopia and Eritrea have deteriorated significantly in recent months, following statements by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed affirming Ethiopia's willingness to "fight" for access to the Red Sea port. An escalation to a new conflict will have devastating consequences for regions that have yet to recover from the after-effects of the Tigray conflict of 2020-2022. An Ethiopian invasion will be frowned upon internationally, and could disrupt Western funding for reconstruction and ongoing debt restructuring negotiations. It will increase pressure on the stability of the Ethiopian government and exacerbate existing insecurity problems in other parts of the country.

Islamic State in the Sahel

The Sahel region continues to face a rise in jihadist banditry. Governments in the region are struggling to fill the security vacuum left by the departure of international troops in 2022. Brutal military operations are intensifying community tensions and creating an environment conducive to the recruitment of jihadist militants. Militancy will persist in Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso throughout 2024. The juntas, preoccupied with internal problems, will be unable to stem the continued expansion of armed groups into new regions, creating new hotbeds of militancy, notably in northern Benin and Togo, southwest Mali and potentially southern Niger.

The rise of a caliphate in the north will lead to renewed attacks in major cities. Militant groups will exploit the security vacuum to organize blockades and seize metropolises, imposing their authority over vast swathes of territory in northern Mali and Burkina Faso. This situation will give rise to a new series of terrorist attacks targeting civilians and Western interests, reminiscent of events between 2015 and 2018 in Bamako (Mali), Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) or Niamey (Niger). An Islamic State is emerging in the Sahel that will directly threaten Europe.

Economic growth in Tanzania

By contrast, Tanzania under President Samia Suluhu is enjoying impressive economic growth in 2024, thanks to investments in major infrastructure projects such as the port of Dar es Salaam and the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) to connect with Central Africa. This growth strengthens Tanzania's position as an investment destination in East Africa.

Should financing for the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP), designed to transport crude oil from Uganda via Tanzania, be finalized, Tanzania could move into a position of regional economic leadership, putting it ahead of Kenya in the years to come.

The Pan-African Payment and Settlement System (PAPSS).

The launch of the Pan-African Payment System, by reducing transaction costs for regional businesses, will boost intra-African trade. However, disagreements within ECOWAS, and the rivalry between Tanzania and Kenya, may hamper this integration. The launch of the Pan-African Payment and Settlement System (PAPSS), an initiative developed by Afreximbank and hosted by Kenya, will simplify cross-border transactions, reducing transaction costs for regional businesses by eliminating the need to convert foreign currencies. It is planned that all central banks will join the system by the end of 2024, followed by commercial banks by the end of 2025.

However, in West Africa, ECOWAS is grappling with disagreements over military coups in the Sahel, the maintenance of sanctions against the junta in Niger, and the possibility of trade disruptions in the first half of 2024 due to likely delays in elections in Burkina Faso and Mali. In the East African region, the rivalry between Tanzania and Kenya to dominate imports will complicate relations within the East African Community (EAC).

The possibility that Sahelian countries may decide to leave ECOWAS or exit the CFA franc monetary zone is a real possibility. While the Sahelian military juntas currently derive economic benefits from their membership of ECOWAS and the CFA franc monetary zone, their increasingly hostile rhetoric towards France and the regional bloc could override economic considerations and push them to pursue an independent monetary policy by collectively leaving ECOWAS or abandoning the CFA franc monetary zone.

Resource nationalism

African countries are seeking to manage their resources more sovereignly, but this is leading to tensions with foreign companies.

The growing interest of the United States and the European Union in diversifying supply chains for essential minerals away from China will attract increased funding for mining projects and supply chain infrastructure. The year 2024 will mark the first full year of operation of the modernized Lobito Corridor in Angola, a rail project supported by the United States and the European Union. The train will eventually link the copper deposits of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Zambia to the Atlantic coast.

Aware of the importance of their mineral resources for the global energy transition, more and more African countries are claiming an active role in the management of their natural resources. In 2023, regulatory or contractual interventions by governments were recorded in eight mining markets, including major contract renegotiations in Botswana and the DRC, as well as new mining regulations in Mali and Burkina Faso. These pressures are set to intensify further in 2024.

In Congo, the government and the state-owned mining company, Gécamines, will intensify their efforts after the December 2023 elections to improve the terms of joint venture agreements and reposition Gécamines as a major player in the copper and cobalt trade. In the Sahel, government plans to boost refining capacity in Burkina Faso and Mali could lead to conflicts with gold mining operators, who currently export their product abroad for refining.

A major U.S. investment in a mining project in the DRC could lead to increased interest from major mining companies, which have so far been reluctant to commit large sums. We could also see strategic investments from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, which aspire to become major players in the field of electric batteries.

Ties with Brazil, India, Turkey and the Gulf States.

Medium-sized powers have opportunities in Africa. The continent's countries are seeking to strengthen their relations with the middle powers of Brazil, India, Turkey and the Gulf States. This diversification of international partners will help to increase the presence and influence of these countries in Africa. 

The year 2023 was marked by the efforts of African leaders to raise the continent's profile in global debates. This was illustrated by initiatives such as the peace mission led by five heads of state to Ukraine and Russia, Vice President Ruto's convincing arguments in favor of a fairer global financial system, and the granting of a permanent seat to the African Union within the G20. The region's leading economies continued to resist geopolitical pressure to align themselves with the world's major powers.

By 2024, the world's major powers will be paying less attention to Africa due to domestic concerns, such as the US election campaign, or growing tension between Russia, China and the USA. 

In this context, African leaders will increasingly seek to converge politically with middle powers such as Brazil, India, Turkey and the Gulf States. This convergence will manifest itself in aligned views on issues such as climate financing, the Russia-Ukraine and Israel-Gaza conflicts, reducing the dominance of the US dollar, or reforming multilateral financial institutions. These common positions will provide a platform to support investment and trade in Africa.

The emergence of an African carbon offset market is a possible scenario. After COP28 in late 2023, growing interest in international carbon credits could stimulate the development of natural ecosystem conservation projects in Africa. Gulf countries could play an active role in this development. Carbon agreements could potentially increase revenues for African countries, but their lack of transparency and integrity will be an obstacle to the confidence of investors and international partners. 


Free as an intelligence analyst.

We are inundated with information, the purpose of which is, let there be no doubt, not to inform us, but to manipulate us. Fortunately, the manipulators belong to opposing camps or rival entities, despite the speeches and treaties of friendship. And until the New World Order has collectively reduced us to a vegetable state, they all offer us contradictory theses and information. I therefore propose that you adopt, at your own level, the professional reflexes of an intelligence analyst to deal with the great deception that is the information business in the 21st century.

The intelligence analyst's method

The intelligence analyst gathers, processes and analyzes information to convert it into useful intelligence in strategic, tactical or operational fields. Their analysis is essential to give direction to the action of the services.

To accomplish these missions effectively, the intelligence analyst combines knowledge with know-how. It's not complicated: you just need to know the method, apply it, and with experience, you'll become more and more formidable to the disinformers who abound these days.

Organizing information gathering is a key step. Analysts look for relevant data from open sources and geographic data. In this way, they build up a solid base of information. In this way, you can identify interesting and credible sites, blogs and pages on social networks where you can regularly seek out original analyses. The authors are often specialists in a particular field, be it politics, geopolitics, conspiracies, history, etc. You'll never run out of things to refresh your memory on the historical context, the geography of places, the essential information on the subject. Find out what the Americans, Turks, Russians, Chinese, Indians, Bulgarians, French, Serbs, Cubans and Venezuelans have to say on the subject. So you get conflicting information, opposing arguments.

Throw and translate

Like a gold digger, the intelligence analyst has to sift through a lot of information to extract just a few usable insights. Just like the analyst, you will strive to purify the information, to remove false information, affabulations and lies, in order to retain a reliable, clear, precise thesis based on concrete facts. 

Fluency in English and several languages is often essential, as a great deal of valuable information is available in different languages. The good news is that accessing data from international sources has become child's play: "translating the page" on search engines and, if necessary, running the selected text through an AI mill to translate it flawlessly into your own language makes you a skilled analyst and linguist.

The intelligence analyst maintains relations with other intelligence services on the same side (or not), journalists, diplomats and people in the field. For you, this collaboration and exchange of information is called the Internet. Developing exchanges with foreign correspondents or consulting sites whose philosophical positions you don't share has become child's play on the web. 

Breaking out of the matrix

This last point is essential, because you need to be aware of your cognitive biases, your ideological reading grid, what you call your convictions. In view of the manipulation we've all been subjected to since childhood (James Bond, 007, remember?), we need to de-indoctrinate ourselves, to think for ourselves. We need to get into the habit of consulting contradictory sources and convictions, of opening ourselves up to discourses that are unusual in our cultural or political environment, in order to develop an objective analysis. Reading or listening to discourse and hearing information that offends you won't tip you over to the "opposing camp", but at least you'll know the arguments of your adversary (or enemy) and your convictions will be solid, based on sound reasoning and knowledge, as far as possible, of facts overlooked by your camp. 

This is how the analyst makes all the censors eat their hats, the influencers "in the service of", the armies of trolls hired by consultancies, the presidential services, and the so-called "fact-checkers" and "anti-conspiracy" in the service of the governments and oligarchies that dominate your political and geographical area. The political and financial powers that control your area think you're idiots, that you belong to them, think about it. It's up to you to free yourselves.


Awaiting the purifying Armageddon

The global turbulence that is shaking the international scene is simply the consequence of the bitter struggle between Washington, which is seeking to maintain its domination, and the Russian, Chinese, Persian and Muslim civilizations, the most powerful demographically, which want to free themselves from Anglo-Judeo-Saxon tutelage. These tensions will continue to escalate until one side or the other has overcome the other. In other words, either the current process of global restructuring will succeed and the Western oligarchy will have secured the enslavement of the entire planet to its sole interests, or the remaining free peoples will have been able to free themselves from the deadly grip of the New World Order. Obviously, the outcome will be a great purifying bloodbath.

The fundamental conflict between the Old and New Worlds

This fundamental conflict, which has its roots in the end of the Old Regime powers at the beginning of the 20th century, has entered an open phase since the start of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine, the only possible response to the ongoing stranglehold of NATO strategists. Since then, the conflict has spread geographically, encompassing a growing number of regions. At its heart lies a profound divergence of opinion between the West, represented largely by the United States, and non-Western states that share the ideals of multipolarity and a traditional moral vision of the world.

The Globalist Agenda versus Multipolarity

The West, under the influence of Washington and its allies, promotes a globalist agenda that favors economic globalization and total control of populations under the totalitarian direction of undemocratically elected international institutions. However, this agenda is increasingly being challenged by non-Western global players. These nations have realized that the New World Order favors only Anglo-Jewish interests.

Western economic interventionism and the promotion of inverted values in terms of family, sexuality and political structures are rejected by three-quarters of humanity still capable of expressing an opinion.

Resistance and Multipolarity

Russia, China, India, the Muslim world and revolutionary nations have united to resolutely oppose the destructive ambitions of the economic elite ruling the West. They are challenging the cultural, political and economic hegemony of the West, which is subservient to Anglo-Judeo-Masonic interests. This trend is particularly evident in Syria, where Russia has played a crucial role in resolving the conflict.

Even the United States' closest allies are reassessing their ties, aware of the former superpower's increasingly blatant indifference to guaranteeing their security. The recent escalation in the Israeli-Palestinian region, unprecedented in the 21st century, has amply demonstrated Israel's ascendancy within the "Judeo-Christian" whole.

The need for an eschatological reading of our times

The intensification of the confrontation between the Anglo-Judeo-Saxon principle of "divide and conquer" and the continental principle of union, coupled with the opposition between inverted moral values (wokism, gender theories, nihilism, Satanism, money, etc.) and the traditional values of family, homeland and sacrifice that still prevail in the BRICS, forces the analyst to consider the eschatological dimension of this confrontation. This final confrontation, which is fast approaching, probably as early as this summer of 2024, was foretold millennia ago, and regularly recalled in the most precise detail by numerous seers. All have predicted that this final conflict will have an apocalyptic dimension. The means that technology brings to modern warfare (nuclear, bacteriological, manipulation of crowds via social networks) confirm the darkest predictions: we're going to experience one of the greatest massacres that mankind has ever known since the Great Flood. And it will be a purification.

Hypersonic Missiles lead us to nuclear holocaust.

Hypersonic missiles are a new class of weapons that are upsetting security experts. Capable of traveling at more than five times the speed of sound (Mach 5) and performing evasive maneuvers in flight, they are impossible to intercept using conventional missile defense systems. Add to this the fact that they can carry nuclear warheads, and it's immediately clear why they have generated so much concern about their impact on global security. The world's leading military powers (the USA, China and Russia), like all states capable of doing so, are working on their development. Here's why hypersonic weapons will plunge us into nuclear apocalypse.

Everyone wants hypersonic missiles

By definition, hypersonic missiles are vectors capable of reaching speeds of Mach 5 or more. There are two subtypes of systems. The first is hypersonic glide vehicles (HGVs), which are launched by ballistic missiles and separate from them in flight to glide at hypersonic speed towards their target; the second is hypersonic cruise missiles (HCMs), which are launched like conventional cruise missiles and use scramjet engines to reach the required speed. In both cases, their speed combined with the ability to perform complex evasive maneuvers makes interception almost impossible. To date, no missile defense system is considered capable of intercepting hypersonic vectors. The United States has explored various anti-hypersonic solutions, but they are still at a preliminary stage of development. As a result, there is currently no effective defense against hypersonic attacks, and even if progress can be made in the future, interception will remain a formidable technical challenge, particularly in the event of a large-scale attack. What's more, the fact that hypersonic systems can be equipped with nuclear warheads raises this technical problem to the level of strategic deterrence. Unsurprisingly, the United States has paid particular attention to the development of hypersonic missiles, monitoring the progress of both its own programs and those of its competitors and allies, as a recent Congressional Research Service report shows.

Russia and China are developing hypersonic weapons as part of their Access and Area Denial (A2/AD) strategy designed to keep US forces away from their territory and make it impossible for them to operate nearby. According to this logic, hypersonic missiles would be used to threaten US aircraft carrier groups, forward bases, logistical infrastructure and so on. In addition, both countries see hypersonic delivery systems as a measure to overcome US ballistic missile defenses, which, in their view, compromise the nuclear balance by (theoretically) allowing the US to launch its nuclear weapons without fear of retaliation. Because of their ability to bypass existing defenses, hypersonic missiles would deprive America of its perceived advantage and re-establish the traditional balance based on mutually assured destruction (MAD).

In particular, China has developed a hypersonic weapon, the DF-ZF (formerly known as the WU-14). This HGV is supposed to have a range of 2,000 kilometers and a top speed of Mach 10, and is primarily designed as an anti-ship weapon. China has not specified whether it is capable of carrying nuclear warheads, but has reportedly tested ballistic missiles for launch, including the DF-21D. The weapon could become operational by the end of this year. According to US sources, China also tested a Mach 6 hypersonic vehicle called Xing Kong 2 ('Starry King 2') in 2018, but there is little information available on this system.

For its part, Russia seems to be leading the way in the deployment of hypersonic systems. The Avangard (Project 4202 / Yu-74) is an HGV capable of carrying nuclear warheads, entering service in 2019. With a range of at least 6,000 kilometers, it is equipped with electronic countermeasures, can perform evasive maneuvers and theoretically reach Mach 20. The Tsirkon 3M22 (Zircon) cruise missile has an estimated range of between 400 and 1,000 kilometers and a speed of between Mach 6 and 8. It is primarily designed as an anti-ship weapon fired by naval and air units. The Kh-47M2 Kinzhal ('Dagger') hypersonic ballistic missile is an atypical system, as it is neither an HGV nor an HCM, but rather a hypersonic ballistic missile. With a range of 2,000 kilometers, it can theoretically reach Mach 10. It can carry a nuclear warhead and strike land and sea targets. It is now operational.

The US began developing hypersonic weapons as a possible implementation of the Conventional Prompt Global Strike (CPGS) concept, designed to enable US forces to strike any target in the world within an hour. Dating back to 2008, it was relaunched to counter China and Russia's A2/AD strategy by enabling US forces to strike sensitive targets such as command, control and communications (C3) centers, military bases, logistics nodes, critical infrastructure and other strategic installations to weaken the enemy's combat capabilities. The United States currently has three hypersonic missile programs. The first is the Navy-led Conventional Prompt Strike (CPS) program, designed to equip a Virginia-class submarine with HGVs. This vector also serves as the basis for the Army's Long-Range Hypersonic Weapon (LRHW), aimed at developing a mobile land vector with a range of 2,200 kilometers. Finally, the Air Force is developing the AGM-183 Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW), smaller in size and designed to equip B-52 strategic bombers. According to official statements, none of these programs is aimed at developing delivery systems capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

Other powers are developing hypersonic weapons. Australia is cooperating with the USA in the Hypersonic International Flight Research Experimentation (HIFiRE) program, which has led to several tests of HGVs and scramjets. Japan is also working on HGVs and HCMs; the former are intended for deployment between 2024 and 2028, with anti-carrier and area suppression variants. India has cooperated with Russia on the BrahMos II HCM, and there are reports that it is also developing a national system of the same type. France has also sought Russian collaboration on hypersonic systems, and is modifying its ASN4G cruise missile to reach hypersonic speeds as part of the V-max (Experimental Maneuvering Vehicle) program. The new weapon may be intended for a nuclear strike. Germany tested the SHEFEX II HGV in 2012, but the government lost time by cutting funding for the program. Finally, other countries have experimented with hypersonic technologies, including South Korea, Israel and Iran. 

Hypersonic missiles increase stress for strategists

The first concern arising from the development and deployment of hypersonic systems is their effect on the nuclear balance. The argument put forward by Russia and China that hypersonic delivery systems redress the balance through their ability to penetrate US missile defenses is a valid one. While hypersonic systems are currently impossible to intercept, ordinary missiles are already difficult to destroy in flight, and a mass attack would be just as invincible. 

On the other hand, many experts believe that hypersonic systems have destabilizing effects due to the impossibility of determining whether they carry conventional or nuclear warheads (ambiguity). However, this problem is not unique to hypersonic systems, as many conventional ballistic and cruise missiles are also affected by the same problem. As a result, hypersonic missiles do not bring significant changes to nuclear attack capabilities and, rather than nuclear delivery systems, they appear to be primarily designed as conventional weapons for rapid strikes against critical targets. 

However, in the event of a crisis between major powers triggered by external factors, they can encourage a logic of escalation. In such conditions, marked by high levels of stress caused by an imminent (perceived) armed threat to vital national interests leaving little time for a response, communication between states deteriorates and decision-makers use mental shortcuts to speed up their choices, making the decision-making process less rational. In such circumstances, each side will be tempted to use hypersonic missiles to launch a rapid, debilitating first strike to gain a decisive advantage, or to use its hypersonic assets for a pre-emptive strike to prevent the opponent from doing so. This will lead to belligerents firing first to crush the enemy. And that will lead to nuclear escalation. Hypersonic systems will thus drag this third world war, already underway since the planning of the global pandemic by the American Deep State, into a nuclear holocaust. 


On the way to arizona

The bus finally came to a halt, marking the end of the journey. Passengers began to disembark into the starry Nogales night. The town, which until the 20th century had been bustling with the incessant comings and goings of people and commercial activities along the border, had suffered from the wall built at the beginning of the 21st century. Little by little, trade between the two countries dried up.

Nogales no longer had a wall, but now seemed frozen in time, deserted by its population. The narrow streets were still lined with faded Hispanic buildings, bearing witness to a rich past that had disappeared with the inhabitants.

Wrought-iron signs, tarnished by years of neglect, still retained a certain elegance. But the cobbled alleyways were overgrown, offering sleepy settings where mosaic fountains dried under the starry sky.

A handful of stores were still open, offering steaming beers and tamales to the hungry, filling the air with the delicious scents of Mexican cuisine. Everywhere else, darkness had enveloped the city, home to nothing but ghosts.

Mexicans, like Liang, waited patiently on the sidewalk, chatting quietly amongst themselves, overcome by the ghostly atmosphere of the city. 

The city, despite its abandonment, retained a certain aura, a testimony to the richness of its past and the perseverance of those who had remained. As Liang scanned the horizon in search of a hypothetical means of transport to the north, he joined the few travelers continuing northwards, cautiously observing their surroundings. The starry sky offered a mystical glow to this abandoned city. 

The others told Liang that there might be a means of transport coming in the morning. The others thought it would take a day or two. As the hours passed, Liang's patience was tested, but he was used to it. His whole life had been a story of patience, of waiting for trains, of customers disappearing into thin air.

Finally, just as the first rays of sunlight were beginning to peek over the horizon, a filthy truck arrived. Its rear platform was devoid of safety barriers. It was the only vehicle available for transport to the northern lands. Liang didn't hesitate and climbed aboard, among the other passengers eager to leave Nogales behind.

The road that took them to Tucson and on to Phoenix was a journey through the desolate, silent landscape of a world in ruins. The military bases that once dotted this strategic route were now obliterated. Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Navy FST, Goldwater Air National Guard, JFHQ AZNG, Papago Park, Luke Air Force, Camp Navajo, all these military installations had been reduced to rubble and ashes. The territory was a vast field of ashes that flew under the truck's tires. The road was cluttered with abandoned vehicles, or the last homes of people surprised by the nuclear fire. Liang could make out the skeletons in the cars. No one had ever taken them out. The United States of America was no more. A pestilential stench invaded the nostrils of travelers. Liang tied a scarf around his face to protect himself a little from the cloud of ash flying around him.  

Even as day broke, the landscape was plunged into the semi-darkness of nuclear winter. There had been no electricity in the United States since World War III devastated the country. The ruined buildings were abandoned. Only the shadows of a bygone past seemed to haunt the place. Liang knew that the area was overrun with grieving souls, minds baffled by the violence of their deaths. Silence reigned supreme over this ravaged land, but Liang silently prayed that the souls haunting the place would not torment him.



Liang befand sich im Niemandsland der ehemaligen Grenze zwischen Mexiko und den Vereinigten Staaten. Diese Linie, die einst auf der amerikanischen Seite durch Mauern, Zäune und strenge Kontrollen gekennzeichnet war, hatte seit dem Dritten Weltkrieg jegliche Bedeutung verloren. Mexiko hatte die Kontrolle über seine ehemaligen Provinzen zurückerlangt. Das amerikanische Imperium gab es nicht mehr, es war von russischen Atomraketen zerstört worden. Dieser schreckliche Krieg hatte Milliarden von Menschen das Leben gekostet und eine radikal veränderte Weltkarte hinterlassen. 

Die russischen Atomschläge hatten alle großen amerikanischen Städte und wichtigen Militärstützpunkte in Schutt und Asche gelegt. Die Druckwellen der Explosionen hatten verheerende Erdbeben ausgelöst, die ganze Regionen erschütterten, Straßen und alle wichtigen Bauwerke zerstörten. Viele Gebiete waren noch immer radioaktiv verseucht und Millionen von Überlebenden waren auf den Straßen gestorben, auf der Suche nach Schutz, Nahrung und einem Sinn für ihre Existenz.

Liang hatte eine gefährliche Lieferung nach Mexiko abgeschlossen und chinesische Prozessoren in das Land gebracht, das der Gewalt der Gangs ausgeliefert war. Es schien, als hätten die blutrünstigen Instinkte der Azteken wieder die Oberhand gewonnen. Mexiko war ein gefährliches Ziel.

Nun war Liang auf dem Weg in die Vereinigten Staaten. Er hatte den Befehl erhalten, nach Sedona zu reisen, einer Stadt, die im Bundesstaat Arizona liegt. In der dunklen Nacht saß Liang in einem ziemlich schrottreifen Bus und spürte, wie ihn die Müdigkeit übermannte. Die Passagiere um ihn herum schienen ebenso erschöpft zu sein wie er. Der Bus war durch gefährliche Gebiete gefahren, überall standen Straßensperren mit bewaffneten Menschen, die nicht immer von Regierungssoldaten organisiert wurden. Seine Augen schlossen sich langsam. Die Gegend schien ruhiger zu sein, aber er wusste, dass er wachsam bleiben musste. Er flößte seiner Packung Flaschen mit Negra Modelo ein. In Mexiko wurde immer noch Bier gebraut.

Vor ihm erstreckte sich die Sonora-Region mit ihren kargen Landschaften, steinigen Bergen und holprigen Straßen. Die Sterne leuchteten intensiv am wolkenlosen Himmel und verliehen der Nacht einen geheimnisvollen Glanz. Liang konnte die Restwärme der Wüste selbst in der Dunkelheit spüren. Die Luft war erfüllt von gemischten Gerüchen nach scharfem Essen, vom Krieg verbrannter Erde und Parfüms, deren Herkunft er nicht erraten wollte. Der Weltkrieg war vor zehn Jahren zu Ende gegangen und die Erde würde noch ein Jahrhundert brauchen, um sich von all den Kampfgasen, der Strahlung und den Bakterien zu erholen, die zur Ausrottung der Bevölkerung eingesetzt worden waren.

Während er in Gedanken versunken war, zog Liang die vierte und letzte Bierflasche aus seinem abgenutzten Rucksack, der zu seinen Füßen lag. Gekonnt köpfte er die Flasche und trank einen Schluck. Er nahm sich eine Maistortilla und kaute langsam, während er nach draußen blickte. 

Der Bus fuhr in den Ballungsraum Nogales ein, der seit dem Krieg verlassen war. Die lokale Bevölkerung war über die Grenze geflohen, seit die Kh-47М2 Kinjal, die aerobalistischen Luft-Boden-Hypersonic-Raketen, das amerikanische Imperium verwüstet hatten. Sie waren geflohen, weil sie Angst hatten, unter der Strahlung des Krieges zu leiden. Nur wenige waren an die Grenze zurückgekehrt und hatten sich für den Aufstieg in die nördlichen Regionen entschieden, wo das Klima kühler war und die Gangsterbanden kein Interesse daran hatten, hierher zu kommen. Die wirtschaftliche Aktivität in der Region war auf Null gesunken, seit die Yankees dezimiert worden waren. Es gab keine Kunden mehr für die Maquiladoras, die mexikanischen Montagewerke, die in der Vorkriegszeit Millionen von Menschen beschäftigt hatten.

Als sie sich Nogales näherten, waren die Reisenden aufgewacht und hatten immer lebhaftere Gespräche ausgetauscht. Die Mexikaner waren froh, dass die Grenze nicht mehr existierte. Ihr Land war gewachsen, die demütigende Grenze, die den Tod so vieler ihrer Landsleute verursacht hatte, war nicht mehr. 

Der Bus verlangsamte seine Fahrt. Wir waren angekommen. Liang musste aussteigen, um einen anderen Bus zu nehmen, wenn er einen fand, der nach Sedona fuhr.

Sunset Manifesto

Dit zijn de voorwaarden van het manifest dat ik voorstel om levensvatbaarheid, stabiliteit, rechtvaardigheid en harmonie te bevorderen in onze westerse samenlevingen, die in feite heterogene samenlevingen zijn. Hoewel ik voorstander ben van een vetorecht over de komst van buitenlanders naar mijn land, wil ik geen algehele uitzetting van inheemse bevolkingsgroepen opleggen. Dat zou onrecht doen aan de goede mensen onder hen en een vijandig front voor onze deur creëren. 

Ik geef de voorkeur aan de eliminatie zonder proces van die individuen die het gevaarlijkst zijn voor onze samenlevingen en onze burgers. Ik zie dit als het werk van een tuinman die zijn heggen snoeit, onkruid verwijdert zonder haat, zodat de planten in zijn tuin onbedreigd kunnen groeien. Het is de rol van de overheid, een welwillende tuinman, om te zorgen voor het comfort, de veiligheid en het welzijn van haar burgers.

In naam van de vrijheid van meningsuiting wil ik dat patriotten hun politieke en sociale meningen en ideeën kunnen uiten zonder censuur van overheidswege of zonder morele, politieke, religieuze of filosofische censuur. De enige grenzen aan deze vrijheid betreffen natuurlijk de vijanden van het Westen en zijn vrijheid, op dit moment islamistische militanten of terroristische elementen in het algemeen, die oproepen tot het vernietigen, doden en afslachten van westerlingen en hun manier van leven. Dergelijke toespraken moeten met alle middelen worden gestopt en hun auteurs moeten fysiek worden geëlimineerd. Het spreekt voor zich dat jihadstrijders, zij die actie hebben ondernomen, actief moeten worden opgejaagd en zonder proces geëlimineerd.

In naam van de noodzakelijke scheiding van kerk en staat moeten religieuze of filosofische instellingen worden gescheiden van politieke of overheidstaken om de godsdienstvrijheid te garanderen en ongepaste religieuze of filosofische invloed op het openbare leven te vermijden. Zo moet het leden van geheime kerken en filosofische genootschappen verboden worden politieke macht uit te oefenen en een administratieve of overheidsfunctie te bekleden, om ervoor te zorgen dat het privilege van autoriteit of dwang neutraal en welwillend blijft tegenover iedereen. Personen die verbonden zijn aan geheime genootschappen moeten hun politieke of administratieve gezagsposities neerleggen. In het geval van verzwijging moeten ze, als ze ontdekt worden, beroofd worden van hun bezittingen en verdreven of verbannen worden naar afgelegen gebieden van het land.

In naam van het sociale contract stel ik voor dat individuen instemmen met hun bescherming door de overheid. Het monopolie op legitiem geweld moet daarom worden overgelaten aan de overheid of lokale ordehandhavers om de orde en veiligheid van dag tot dag te handhaven. Dit weerhoudt individuen er niet van om gewapend te blijven en zichzelf te kunnen verdedigen, indien nodig, of zelfs om hun wapens te gebruiken om zich te verzetten tegen een regering die verwrongen is en geëvolueerd is tot de dictatuur van een paar oligarchen. In naam van het machtsevenwicht is het altijd goed als de regering, in dienst van haar burgers, weet dat haar kiezers de mogelijkheid hebben behouden om haar ten val te brengen als ze uit de koers raakt. 

In naam van de Wet van Rechtvaardigheid en Rechtvaardigheid moeten eerlijkheid en rechtvaardigheid worden gegarandeerd in de behandeling van individuen. Iedereen, met uitzondering van recidivisten, terroristen en buitenlandse agenten, die zonder proces geëlimineerd moeten worden, heeft recht op gelijkheid voor de wet en non-discriminatie. Met het oog op de evolutie van de rechterlijke macht ben ik van mening dat de rechtsregels vereenvoudigd moeten worden en dat de rechterlijke macht moet buigen en slechts de soevereine beslissingen van willekeurig benoemde volksjury's administratief moet vastleggen. Deze volksjury's moeten de plaats innemen van de magistraten in alle disciplines; de orde van advocaten kan worden gehandhaafd als adviesorgaan, maar het moet verboden worden om namens een eiser of een beschuldigde voor de rechtbank te spreken. We moeten af van deze schijnvertoningen, die onderhevig zijn aan het talent van prietpraat, leugenaars en degenen die een gave hebben om hun publiek te verleiden. De opeenstapeling van wetten heeft alleen maar codes en talen voortgebracht die de burgers vreemd zijn geworden. Het heeft kasten van insiders gevoed die het op zich nemen om recht te spreken volgens hun trawanten, hun overtuigingen en hun afspraken. Het is tijd om de regels te vereenvoudigen: wie steelt wordt gestraft; wie doodt of verkracht wordt automatisch geëxecuteerd, tenzij zij of de politie voor een jury kunnen bewijzen dat de moord onbedoeld was. Het is ook mogelijk dat een bepaalde zaak resulteert in clementie van de kant van de jury van het volk. In het geval van diefstal is het voldoende om straffen op te leggen die in verhouding staan tot de waarde en de intentie om de persoon die voedsel steelt uit honger vrij te pleiten. Deze straffen kunnen geen gevangenisstraf zijn, maar gratis arbeid, zoals dwangarbeid, ten gunste van de benadeelde partij. Bij herhaalde diefstal wordt de straf verdubbeld. Degenen die hun straf uitvoeren mogen niet blootgesteld worden aan publieke wraakzucht; alleen de politiediensten houden een dossier van een overtreding bij in het geheim van een gespecialiseerde afdeling. Andere politiediensten hebben geen toegang tot deze database op straffe van ontslag. Het misdrijf moet na tien jaar uit de bestanden van deze dienst worden gewist, omdat we de mogelijkheid van verlossing voor alle individuen moeten behouden. Gewelddadige dieven en dieven die langer dan vijf jaar gestraft zijn voor herhaalde overtredingen worden geëxecuteerd, omdat professionele dieven en gewelddadige overtreders een bedreiging vormen voor de maatschappij.

In naam van de wet van de democratie komt de macht van het volk. Burgers hebben het recht om deel te nemen aan het politieke proces. Vrije en eerlijke verkiezingen impliceren de eliminatie van oligarchieën en geheime genootschappen die door hun macht en invloed de natuurlijke neiging hebben om zichzelf macht toe te eigenen. De vitaliteit van een samenleving hangt echter af van de sociale lift en de opkomst van nieuw talent uit alle lagen van de samenleving. Om deze principes te garanderen, moeten we referenda op volksinitiatief invoeren, burgers verplicht laten stemmen en iedereen vrije toegang geven tot de uitoefening van het politieke gezag. Het is nu noodzakelijk om de vergaderingen af te schaffen, die de schuilplaats zijn geworden van arrogante notabelen die van het volk zijn afgesneden, ten gunste van directe en verplichte elektronische stemmingen door al onze burgers. Dit betekent natuurlijk minder stemmingen, niet meer dan tien per jaar, over essentiële wetgeving. De toepassingsgebieden van deze referenda zijn de herziening van de grondwet of de goedkeuring van een nieuwe grondwet. Aangezien de grondwet de grondbeginselen van het bestuur van een land bepaalt, is het essentieel dat het volk er niet van wordt uitgesloten.

Veranderingen aan het kiesstelsel, zoals het wijzigen van kiesregels, evenredige vertegenwoordiging of het stemsysteem, kunnen een grote impact hebben op de democratie van een land en vereisen een referendum.

Vragen met betrekking tot burgerschap, zoals de toegang tot dubbele nationaliteit, de afschaffing van dubbele nationaliteit of de criteria voor het toekennen van burgerschap moeten worden onderworpen aan een referendum.

Wetten die van invloed zijn op de fundamentele rechten van burgers, zoals het al dan niet aannemen van wetten over mensenrechten, vrijheid van meningsuiting, vrijheid van godsdienst of de rechten van minderheden van welke aard dan ook, moeten aan een referendum worden onderworpen.

Gevoelige kwesties zoals abortus, het homohuwelijk, het al dan niet uiten van LGBTQ+-minderheden, de adoptie van kinderen door deze seksuele minderheden, het legaliseren of verbieden van drugs en andere belangrijke sociale kwesties moeten per referendum worden beslist.

Ook over grote veranderingen in het belastingstelsel, zoals belastingverhogingen of -verlagingen, moet een referendum worden gehouden, omdat ze een grote invloed hebben op de overheidsfinanciën en het leven van de burgers.

Grote economische hervormingen, zoals de privatisering van overheidsbedrijven of de hervorming van het socialezekerheidsstelsel, zullen aan een referendum worden onderworpen, omdat ze niet kunnen worden overgelaten aan de regelingen van bepaalde lobby's en klassen van zakenlieden of corrupte politici, zoals nu het geval is.

Groot industrieel beleid of belangrijk milieubeleid, zoals de exploitatie van natuurlijke hulpbronnen, milieubescherming, de oriëntatie van nationale economische programma's of de toetreding tot internationale klimaatovereenkomsten, moeten per referendum worden beslist. Zoals we al gezien hebben, strekt dit principe zich uit tot alle beslissingen en beleidslijnen met een internationale draagwijdte, opdat het gezicht van onze natie niet gemonopoliseerd zou worden door een burgerlijke of militaire kaste. Beslissingen die de nationale veiligheid betreffen, zoals het toetreden tot militaire allianties of het gebruik van strijdkrachten in binnen- en buitenland, zullen aan een referendum worden onderworpen. 

De wetten die zo door het volk worden gestemd hebben voorrang op alle internationale verplichtingen en mogen niet worden beoordeeld of ondermijnd door een rechtbank of een autoriteit van raadsleden, wijze mannen of anderen van samenloop, corruptie of occulte invloed. Bovendien moeten alle permanente commissies en raden worden afgeschaft en moeten tijdelijke commissies worden onderworpen aan een volksbesluit via een referendum.

Als burgers niet minstens drie keer per jaar deelnemen aan deze referenda, tenzij er een goed gedocumenteerd excuus van gezondheid of tijdschema is, verliezen ze hun recht op elke gratis hulp van de staat in de naam van wederzijdse rechten en plichten. Natuurlijk zouden burgers die vrijwillig afstand doen van hun rechten voor één jaar van deze rechten worden beroofd, om hen het recht te geven zich te ontwikkelen en zorgvuldig na te denken over de belangen van de collectieve geest.

In naam van de wet van het secularisme is het noodzakelijk dat religieuze, filosofische of politieke overtuigingen behouden blijven als ze in het zielengeheim bewaard worden. Zoals we al hebben gezegd, moeten religieuze en filosofische instellingen strikt worden gescheiden van de uitoefening van het bestuur, om de religieuze of filosofische neutraliteit van de staatsambtenaren in openbare aangelegenheden te garanderen. Respect voor secularisme houdt respect in voor de Wet van Religieuze Tolerantie, die respect voor en vreedzame coëxistentie van verschillende religieuze overtuigingen binnen een westerse samenleving van heidense en christelijke oorsprong impliceert.

Rabbia legittima

Vi invito a casa mia. Capirete come le prime crepe nello specchio della mia innocenza abbiano finito per trasformarsi in un fatto indiscutibile.

La mia storia inizia in una piccola città, uno di quei paesi tranquilli dove tutti si conoscono. La mia famiglia era molto ordinaria. Mio padre lavorava, mia madre lavorava e io, figlio unico, sono cresciuto in un mondo non ideale ma tranquillo. Era il mondo occidentale degli anni Settanta, un mondo etnicamente omogeneo in cui l'orrore colpiva il Terzo Mondo, un mondo che non beneficiava della modernizzazione materiale e culturale. Certo, c'erano state le prime devastazioni della droga, ma erano rimaste confinate in ambienti marginali. Le guerre dell'impero americano si combattevano in continenti lontani, popolati da persone che non conoscevamo. E, nonostante gli sforzi di alcuni giornalisti che sentivano di avere una missione umanista, non ci interessavano le carestie o le guerre che coinvolgevano popolazioni a noi estranee.

La mia educazione è stata quella tipica di molti bambini della mia generazione. Andai a scuola, imparai a leggere e a scrivere e scoprii (con scarso interesse) la matematica e le scienze. Tutto questo sembrava far parte della norma, ma già a quell'età mi sentivo fuori posto. Non riuscivo a integrarmi completamente nella società che mi circondava, non credevo nelle sue fantasie, nei suoi modelli. 

Alla fine degli anni '60 sono arrivate le prime famiglie, che si sono mescolate. A poco a poco, negli anni '70, abbiamo avuto nuove teste di moro nel parco giochi. Tutto andava bene. Non sentivo alcuna diffidenza. Erano tutti assimilati. Alcuni sono ancora amici. 

I primi problemi sono iniziati negli anni '80. Bande di stranieri si aggiravano per i viali, arrivando da periferie lontane e da quartieri ghettizzati. Erano ostili, aggressivi e in cerca di guai. Erano raggruppati in bande etniche. È stato a questo punto che la retorica dell'esclusione ha fatto la sua comparsa tra alcuni politici, mentre i giornali titolavano su incidenti e crimini che coinvolgevano questi stranieri. Questi politici annunciavano le crescenti difficoltà causate dalla crescente immigrazione, mentre la stampa e i politici, agli ordini delle logge massoniche, negavano il problema e tacevano sui cognomi esotici degli stupratori e dei criminali che stavano rovinando il nostro mondo. 

Quando ero adolescente ho iniziato a interessarmi alle idee e ai discorsi che riportavano la diversità culturale all'ordine del giorno. Ho letto articoli e autori che sostenevano la conservazione dell'identità etnica e denunciavano questa invasione. Non mi sembravano inverosimili, piuttosto lucidi.

Il mio cambiamento ideologico è stato graduale, passando da una benevola neutralità a un pregiudizio sfavorevole man mano che i fatti criminali si sommavano agli attacchi terroristici causati da stranieri. Era vietato parlarne, vietato criticare la diversità. I famigerati termini razzismo, nazismo ed estrema destra sono stati subito sbandierati, vietando qualsiasi dibattito. 

L'unico luogo che consentiva la libertà di opinione era Internet. L'effervescenza delle comunità online contrastava nettamente con il silenzio dei media, soggetti alle direttive del governo o ai poteri finanziari, e in gran parte favorevoli all'immigrazione economica, sinonimo di disgregazione sociale e di salari più bassi. 

Sul web ho trovato persone che condividevano le mie idee, le mie paure e la mia indignazione. 

Non c'era odio, ma solo tanta ironia e rabbia per l'impunità concessa a tutti questi parassiti etnici che imponevano i loro costumi e i loro comportamenti barbari con la benedizione dei politici al servizio del globalismo. Le teorie cospiratorie venivano confermate dai fatti ogni giorno. L'unico luogo in cui potevamo constatarlo era il terreno scelto dal nemico: i GAFAM americani che ci avevano imposto Internet.

I forum e le piattaforme dove mi tenevo informato erano diventati scuole di pensiero, dove i discorsi xenofobi erano all'ordine del giorno. Mi ero creata una bolla di conferma, in cui le mie convinzioni venivano costantemente rafforzate e amplificate dagli altri.

Ho sentito il bisogno di uscire dalla rete. Ho capito che il giorno in cui il nemico globalista avesse deciso di toglierci Internet, saremmo stati perduti, perché avevamo perso il legame sociale, i corpi intermedi della famiglia, del quartiere o della società. 

Fu allora che iniziai a scrivere dei manifesti che avevano lo scopo di allertare, informare e fornire strumenti ideologici per la rivoluzione che stavo progettando. Queste dichiarazioni motivazionali erano il culmine della mia determinazione a lottare con tutte le mie forze contro questa distopia che ci veniva imposta. 

Le popolazioni non autoctone erano sempre più presenti, invadevano la nostra vita quotidiana, moltiplicavano i crimini, gli stupri e i saccheggi sotto la benevola protezione delle oligarchie sataniste che gestivano la società. 

Ho esposto le mie idee per preservare l'etnia bianca e lo stile di vita e i valori del mondo occidentale. 

Ero convinto che l'immigrazione di massa, pur non essendo la fonte di tutti i mali della società - lo era il globalismo massonico - dovesse essere fermata. Era necessaria un'azione violenta e risoluta per proteggere la mia cultura e la mia razza, che erano minacciate di distruzione.

#razzismo, #romanzi

Auszug aus Die dissidente Stimme, meinem aktuellen Roman

Inmitten dieses zeitgenössischen Dramas werden wir, die Hauptfiguren, gegeneinander antreten, als Protagonisten und Antagonisten einer modernen Tragödie. Jeder von uns wird dazu beitragen, die Fäden eines erbärmlichen Kapitels der modernen Geschichte zu spinnen, das das Röcheln des Hasses widerspiegelt, das unsere Zeit quält.

Ich, der Schütze, bin ein weißer Mann und der Erzähler dieser Geschichte. Mein Name spielt keine Rolle, denn was ich repräsentiere, ist wichtiger als meine individuelle Identität. Ich verkörpere die Frustrationen, Ängste und Überzeugungen, die mich dazu bringen, das Unwiederbringliche zu begehen. Durch meine Augen werden Sie die Beweggründe und Rechtfertigungen für meine Taten entdecken, so beunruhigend sie auch sein mögen.

Die Opfer sind Männer, Frauen und Kinder aus anderen Ländern, die auf der Suche nach einem besseren Leben sind als dem, das ihre trostlosen Heimatländer bieten. Ihre Schicksale kreuzen sich auf tragische Weise mit meinem. Sie stehen für Hoffnung, Verletzlichkeit, aber auch für die Bedrohung, die meine Welt zerstört. Ihre persönliche Tragödie spielt keine oder nur eine geringe Rolle und nur in den Köpfen der Feinde meines Blutes.

Die Strafverfolgungsbehörden wären dafür zuständig, die Fäden dieser Tragödie zu entwirren und für Gerechtigkeit zu sorgen. Ihre Bemühungen, meine Beweggründe zu verstehen und mich und meine möglichen Komplizen aufzuspüren, würden durch den Schwung der Geschichte zunichte gemacht werden. Bald, viel zu schnell, wird es keine Ordnungskräfte mehr geben, zerstreut durch das Chaos des Bürgerkriegs, durch die Invasion und das Erdbeben eines Weltkriegs.

Der Schauplatz dieser Geschichte wird nicht spezifiziert, es ist eine Stadt wie überall im Westen, da keine Stadt wirklich verschont bleiben wird. Der Hintergrund dieser Ereignisse wird von den Schreien, dem Weinen, dem Todesröcheln und dem irren Lachen der Folterseelen, die sich in jedem Krieg selbst verdammen, zerrissen und zerhackt.

Wir alle werden zwischen Wut und Angst schwanken, konfrontiert mit einer Realität, die uns überfordert. Wir werden in die Netze des Antichristen geworfen, zerhackt, gevierteilt und bis ins Innerste unserer Seele zerrissen. Das, Leser, wird das traurige Schauspiel deines Untergangs sein. Denn ich erzähle nur, was dir bevorsteht.

Une voix dissidente

Mon nom est sans importance. Ce que vous devez savoir, c'est que je suis un homme en quête de sens. Dans un monde aveuglé par l'hypocrisie et l'inaction, il est devenu nécessaire de briser le silence et la peur, d'agir quand on en a le courage.

Aujourd'hui, le Monde Occidental est en proie à des tensions sociales et politiques sans précédent. Les médias et les politiciens peuvent tenter de masquer la réalité, mais la vérité est là : nos sociétés sont en train de pourrir de l'intérieur.

Le discours officiel me laisse sans voix. Nos dirigeants, et toute cette masse de connards inutiles qui les a mis là, sont complices de l'une des plus grandes trahisons de l'histoire mondiale : la prise du pouvoir mondial par une puissante entreprise. Une élite cynique, aveuglée par sa puissance autant que notre insignifiance, nous mène à notre holocauste.

L'immigration est l'une des principales sources de mon effroi. Les politiciens se disputent les faveurs des étrangers sur notre sol, offrant l'accès à notre pays, à nos ressources, à nos femmes, au nom de la tolérance. Nos emplois sont condamnés, notre mort imminente et douloureuse.

Les loges sont au cœur de cette débâcle. Elles nous poussent à accepter davantage d'envahisseurs, qu'ils soient légaux ou clandestins, pour détruire notre environnement comme des nuages de sauterelles.

Le temps est venu de reconnaître l'inaction comme un choix. Nos pères fondateurs nous avaient donné le droit moral de nous battre défendre nos familles. Des générations de traîtres nous ont retiré ce droit. Celui qui hier était un héros dans une bataille est devenu un fou, un "extrémiste".

Mon action n'est pas motivée par la seule haine, mais par la volonté de combattre pour l'honneur, de ne pas me rendre en baissant la tête. Je suis conscient des critiques qui seront dirigées contre moi, de ces mots qui saliront mes intentions quand tous baisseront la tête, mais ils ne font que renforcer ma conviction. Je ne suis pas un suprémaciste blanc, comme ils disent, je suis un homme désespéré d'être seul à vouloir sauver ma race.

La diversité est temporaire, bientôt nous seront exterminés, rayés des cartes et de l'histoire. On parlera des vestiges d'une civilisation disparue par couardise, par suicide. Personne ne comprendra parce que c'est incompréhensible. La solution serait une bataille de plusieurs millions de morts, les vaincre au prix de notre quasi-extinction pour les chasser. Mais nous sommes devenus trop lâches pour seulement faire face à ce que nous sommes.

Je suis prêt à payer le prix de l'infamie pour défendre ce en quoi je crois. Si je dois mourir, je le ferai en sachant que j'ai agi pour un idéal, même si cela signifie être catalogué comme un déséquilibré par les miens.

L'Amérique, et l'Occident tout entier, sont perdus. Le combat n'a pas commencé, nous sommes déjà vaincus. Je vais au front, seul. 

Pour les générations qui survivront au chaos que nous nous apprêtons à vivre, la situation que nous vivons en Occident est bien loin de ce que racontent les médias officiels. Nos sociétés sont en proie à des tensions sociales et politiques qui touchent à leur paroxysme. Les gens se méfient les uns des autres, tout le monde se méfie de son prochain. Les familles sont désunies, les liens sociaux n'existent plus. Ce sont gens de gauche contre les gens de droite, femmes contre hommes, vieux contre jeunes. Tout cela est exacerbé par une immigration massive, une véritable invasion, qui perturbe la vie des Occidentaux. De partout surgissent des malheureux, des défavorisés qui viennent crever ici, apportant leurs mœurs barbares, leurs ignorances, leur obscurantisme. Certains, parmi eux, sont des fauves prêts à tout détruire comme un nuage de millions de sauterelles carnivores.

Les médias et les politiciens minimisent ces problèmes, mais les sociétés occidentales sont confrontées à des difficultés insurmontables. Les services sociaux sont débordés, l'économie est au bord du précipice, l'insécurité est permanente. Nous savons que, bientôt, le sol s'ouvrira sous nos pieds. Nous savons que cela ne tardera pas, même si nous ne savons pas quand surviendra l'attaque.

Les tensions ethniques sont devenues monnaie courante, créant un climat d'insécurité croissante. La communauté occidentale se retrouve désormais divisée, les Blancs sont entourés, dans tous les espaces publics, par des foules de métèques qui interdisent la libre opinion. Pas un jour ne se passe sans que viols, agressions, pillages, meurtres ne fassent pleurer dans le secret des foyers. Pendant des années, on a acheté le silence des métèques. Mais l'économie s'effondre. Lorsque les crédits s'évaporeront, ce sera l'hallali. Les foules d'Africains, d'Orientaux, de parasites méridionaux viendront dans les maisons pour s'emparer de ce qu'ils convoitent depuis des décennies. Soyons clairs, ce ne sera pas un conflit intercommunautaire, ce sera le massacre des Blancs.

Les incidents violents, les émeutes et les actes criminels se multiplient au quotidien, laissant de nombreuses personnes dans la peur et l'incertitude. L'immigration massive a créé des poches de désespoir, de criminalité et de haine qui ne seront vidées que par le meurtre, le viol et le pillage.

Nos politiciens, souvent sélectionnés sur leur médiocrité morale et intellectuelle, sont plus intéressés par les avantages électoraux à court terme et leur ego malade que par une vision à long terme de nos sociétés. Ils rivalisent pour courtiser le vote des immigrants, promettant des avantages. Maintenant, ils vident nos dernières ressources pour retarder l'heure de la guerre. 

Au-dessus d'eux, au-dessus de nous tous, une caste fanatique maîtrise le jeu. Cette caste sombre et menaçante favorise la guerre et les tensions, faisant venir des millions de ces pauvres gens dans le seul but qu'ils sèment le chaos. Il est question, oui, de détruire notre monde occidental, ses revendications, ses idéaux égalitaires et sa recherche de liberté, pour asservir les survivants, les maintenir dans l'ignorance et dans la peur des esclaves. Il est question de réduire l'humanité à une masse bien moindre qu'aujourd'hui. Moins d'un milliard de survivants seront maintenus dans l'ignorance et sous les fers. Avec ce résidu apeuré, on fera naître un Nouvel Ordre Mondial favorable aux intérêts de la seule caste régnante.

Qu'importe notre race, pour cette oligarchie de puissants, nous devons tous redevenir des esclaves. Certains parmi nous travailleront dans des fabriques, d'autres conduiront les véhicules, tailleront les pelouses ou se dévoueront au plaisir des maîtres. Tous seront esclaves, sélectionnés, sevrés, programmés, limités aux besoins que l'on aura définis pour eux. Nous n'aurons plus de libre-arbitre, il n'y aura plus d'humanité telle qu'elle s'est épanouie jusqu'aujourd'hui. Certes, une infime partie parviendra à échapper à ce sort tragique. Ils seront le germe d'une nouvelle humanité, mais c'est là une autre histoire.

Le Maghrébin ne sait pas qu'il a été de la race des rois

Le Maghrébin ne sait pas qu'il a été empereur, docteur de l'Eglise, avocat recherché, poète célébré. L'Afrique du Nord est le berceau de civilisations millénaires,une région riche en histoires, en cultures. Mais elle a été colonisée

L'ouvrage "Afrique du Nord," écrit par William Kergroach, s'inscrit dans la lignée des travaux qui remettent en lumière un passé fabuleux tout en abordant les questions cruciales qui ont marqué son histoire et qui continuent de la hanter aujourd'hui.

Un Passé Complexement Enchevêtré

L'Afrique du Nord, située entre la Méditerranée et le Sahara, a été le théâtre de luttes incessantes pour préserver son indépendance face aux puissances extérieures. L'ouvrage de Kergroach révèle de manière captivante comment cette région a été marquée par une série de conquêtes, de colonisations, et d'occupations successives. Des empires romains aux invasions arabes, en passant par la domination ottomane, espagnole, française, italienne et anglaise, les peuples de l'Afrique du Nord ont dû résister à des forces étrangères déterminées à étendre leur influence et leur contrôle.

L'auteur ne se contente pas de dépeindre les périodes sombres de l'histoire de la région. Il explore également les luttes de résistance menées par les peuples locaux, démontrant que l'Afrique du Nord a souvent été le théâtre de victoires contre l'oppression étrangère. Les soulèvements populaires et les mouvements de libération nationale ont été autant de témoignages de la détermination des habitants de la région à défendre leur liberté et leur dignité.

Une Exploration Actuelle

"Afrique du Nord" présente une structure thématique qui permet aux lecteurs de plonger dans divers aspects de l'histoire et de la réalité contemporaine de la région. Les chapitres dédiés à l'histoire de chaque pays, de l'Égypte à la Mauritanie, offrent des aperçus détaillés des événements clés qui ont façonné leur destin. L'Afrique du Nord, divisée entre pays, est un seul peuple.

Au-delà de la narration historique, l'ouvrage explique que l'Afrique du Nord a un destin commun. Les révolutions arabes, les relations avec le reste de l'Afrique, la question des migrations, le statut des femmes, les minorités ethniques, et le radicalisme islamique trouvent leur réponse dans le passé, où ces sujets étaient déjà présentes pour la société nord-africaine.

Les Défis du Monde Moderne

Alors que de nouvelles puissances internationales, telles que les États-Unis, la Russie, et la Chine, ont remplacé la France et cherchent à étendre leur influence économique et politique dans la région, Kergroach rappelle l'importance cruciale pour les peuples d'Afrique du Nord de préserver leur indépendance face à ces formes subtiles de "colonisation" moderne.

En conclusion, "Afrique du Nord" de William Kergroach est un outil unique pour que les Maghrébins puissent se réapproprier leur histoire et se donner les moyens de compter dans le futur.

Korea, a people divided by the Cold War

After the Second World War, Washington, Moscow and Beijing threw us into the Cold War, a fierce and morally unrestrained struggle to control us. In Asia, Korea became an ideal playground for this great power rivalry.

In 1945, at the Yalta Conference, the Allies came up with the idea of dividing Korea along the 38th parallel. The Soviets occupied the north, and the Americans settled in the south. Let's not dwell on the fine pretexts put forward to justify this situation: they were false.

In 1948, North Korea, led by Kim Il-sung, proclaimed its independence as a communist state, while South Korea, under the leadership of Syngman Rhee, opted for a capitalist regime. Both tyrants were more concerned with personal power than democracy. No matter, since they are protected by like-minded superpowers.

The rise of the Kims

North Korea's loathsome Kim dynasty, from Kim Il-sung to the last of the dreadful Kim Jong-un, has consolidated its power by holding the population hostage, with the constant support of China.

The Korean War broke out in 1950 when North Korea invaded the South, hoping to achieve the long-awaited reunification of the country to its own advantage. The United States, with the support of the United Nations, intervened to help South Korea, while China supported North Korea. The extraordinarily deadly conflict ended in an armistice in 1953, leaving the peninsula more divided than ever, with a literally sterilized buffer territory between the two Koreas.

In the 1950s and 1960s, Kim Il-sung consolidated his power by eliminating his real or potential opponents, and established a dystopian regime in North Korea. Communist China, which regarded Korea as its home turf, emerged as a key ally. For the Communist dinosaurs in Beijing, North Korea's accession to the capitalist model is out of the question: it would be a magnet for the Chinese population, more fascinated by the American-style consumer society than by the medal-studded costumes of the ancient elders of the Long March.

US and Chinese interests in the Korean Division

South Korea became a crucial pawn for the United States, both in its fight against communism, but above all as a strategic military base in East Asia.
From 1950 to 1970, the United States provided substantial economic and military aid to South Korea, erecting a barrier against communist expansion. The country urbanized, becoming hyper-competitive according to the criteria of the capitalist system. As with all countries that pose a threat to the American yoke, the CIA's social engineering is actively working on young people: with the influence of K-Pop, boys' hair is turning blue, they're putting kohl in their eyes, as in Japan or Germany...
For its part, China sees North Korea as a source of stability on its border. Pyongyang must not be allowed to fall, as this would greatly weaken the Communists' position in Beijing. So we make do with the permanent dictator, Kim Jong-il, followed by his obese son... Beijing is maintaining its relationship with Pyongyang as best it can. It's not easy every day...

The disastrous consequences of division

The division of Korea has had a devastating impact on the Korean people, particularly in the North.

Since 1950, families separated by the demilitarized border have had only rare opportunities to reunite, leaving thousands without news of their loved ones.
In the 1990s, North Korea went through a series of severe famines, with hundreds of thousands of North Koreans dying from hunger and malnutrition. North Korean refugees in Seoul are easily recognizable: they are noticeably smaller.

Tensions on the border between the two Koreas remain constant, marked by skirmishes and provocative acts on the part of Pyongyang's Kims. Life for North Koreans is that of a people held in a concentration camp. The Kims, psychopaths from father to son, have no interest in calming things down. Tension at home and abroad is necessary to keep them in power. The day the border falls, they won't last thirty seconds.

Reunification? No.

Attempts at reunification through diplomacy are therefore a joke. Korea will remain divided as long as the USA, China and, to a lesser extent, Japan are functioning states. All are or have been colonizing powers in Korea. They do not want to let go of their prey. The Communist Chinese of today behave towards their small Korean neighbor like Emperor Wu did in the first century B.C.; the Japanese have a long-standing dispute with the Koreans, dating back to the Japanese occupation until 1945; and Washington, a thalassocratic merchant power, will not let this advanced trading post in one of the world's most prosperous regions go at any price, including nuclear conflict.

The major obstacle to reunification is a fat little man by the name of Kim Jong-un. He occupies the position held by his father and grandfather before him. He is being kept in place, despite appearances, because he suits everyone except the Korean people.

Hope, then, lies in the long passage of history, which sees empires and nations emerge and then disappear. One day, America and China will disappear or disintegrate. That will be freedom for the people of Korea.

"Prigozhin, the Saint Petersburg mobster" offers a unique perspective on power struggles, corruption, and criminal alliances at the heart of modern Russia. Plunge into this captivating account that unveils the dark underbelly of a tumultuous era in Russian history.

Within the book's pages, you'll find the fusion of politics and organized crime as the Russia Mafia and Wagner Group intersect, underpinned by the enigmatic figure of Evgeny Prigojine. The shadowy beginnings in St. Petersburg's criminal underworld, the subsequent alliances with powerful crime figures, and the role in the creation of the Wagner Group paint a portrait of a man adept at straddling the line between legality and lawlessness.

The crash of Evgeny Prigojine's plane is met with a somber air within the corridors of the Kremlin. This declaration reverberates as the epitaph of a man whose meteoric social ascent never quieted his inner demons. His diploma was the school of the Bratva, the Russian Mafia.

Explore the evolution of a once-small-time crook, Prigojine, into a significant player in Russian organized crime.

The early 2000s marked a decisive turning point in his life as he entered the inner circle of Russian President Vladimir Putin. This proximity afforded him fresh opportunities, but also exposed him to greater scrutiny.

In 2014, Prigojine played a pivotal role in founding and directing the Wagner Group, a private military company. Under his leadership, the Wagner Group recruited mercenaries for paramilitary operations in countries such as Syria, Africa, and Ukraine. Their mission was to support struggling states or regions seeking secession, aligning with Russian policy. Simultaneously, he established the Internet Research Agency, a pro-Russian propaganda organization. This involvement led to sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union.

Prigojine's central role became more pronounced during the Russia-Ukraine conflict. As the leader of the Wagner Group, he gained visibility through scathing critiques of the Russian high command, generating increasing friction. The situation reached its zenith in June 2023 when Prigojine orchestrated a rebellion against the Russian state. This attempt was seen as a serious threat to the stability and authority of President Putin. Ultimately, Prigojine abandoned his "revolutionary" designs.

Prigojine's journey stands as a testament to the intricate connections between power, wealth, and influence among certain oligarchs in Russia. His diverse activities, ranging from the restaurant industry to the creation of paramilitary and propaganda organizations, depict an ambitious and malevolent figure whose impact on Russian history cannot be ignored. His presumed death on August 23, 2023, in the Tver Oblast, seems a fitting end to the life of a gangster.

This compelling work delves into the profound significance of the Hindutva movement and its pivotal role in the resurgence of India's rich cultural heritage. Kergroach's thesis, which asserts the rightful place of Hindutva and the imperative of Hinduization in India, sparks contemplation and debate, shedding new light on the country's evolution.

The narrative commences at the cradle of civilization itself, unveiling the enigma of the Indus Valley. Kergroach vividly paints a tapestry that weaves together the remarkable story of this ancient civilization, tracing its roots from Harappa to Mohenjo-daro.

He navigates the medieval era with finesse, leading us through the dynasties of the Vardhanas, Chalukyas, Rashtrakutas, and Vijayanagara, showcasing the architectural and artistic splendor of those times.

The narrative gracefully flows into the modern era, highlighting the Mughal Empire's architectural marvels, the resilience of princely states, and the champions of India's independence movement. Kergroach offers a panoramic view of India's progress under the stewardship of stalwarts like Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru, and he examines the socioeconomic reforms that followed.

At the heart of this renaissance stands the concept of Hindutva, a beacon of unity that radiates across the spectrum of Indian existence. As Kergroach eloquently explains, Hindutva is the connective thread that binds the profound legacy of ancient traditions with the complexities of modern challenges. This notion is not merely a facet of the past but an enduring, dynamic force that shapes India's present and future.

"India Rediscovered" is a lyrical tribute to India's ongoing renaissance, a narrative that extols a nation's ability to redefine itself while revering its time-honored legacy. Kergroach's exploration of Hindutva as a catalyst for cultural rejuvenation resonates deeply, underscoring the significance of continuity, identity, and renewal in India's journey through time.

500 Million Neo-Ottomans: Turkey's Unyielding Path to a Neo-Ottoman Empire 

Is it because of the allure of Anatole France's "Ottoman" tales, the pages of Pierre Loti's "Aziyadé," or the echoes of Gustave Flaubert's "Voyage en Orient" that the mystique of the Turkish world captured my imagination at a young age? Perhaps the enchanting narratives of Lord Byron, Victor Hugo, and Alexandre Dumas, all enchanted by the East, also played their part in igniting my interest. Yet, it was undoubtedly Henri de Monfreid's "Les Secrets de la Mer Rouge" that truly sparked my fascination with the enduring legacy of the Ottoman Empire in far-flung territories. As a Frenchman, nurtured by these literary influences, my exploration of the Turkish world has led me to "500 Million Neo-Ottomans: The Turkish World in the 21st Century," a book that delves into the unwavering spirit of the Turkish nation and its unyielding connection to its Ottoman heritage.
