Britain At War-Provoking The Consequences

On the 19th of May, the Financial Times quoted the British Minister of Defense, Ben Wallace, stating that the West could face the threat of full-scale war with Russia and China by the end of the decade and proclaimed defence preparation a paramount task for Western countries. One has to wonder what universe Mr. Wallace and his boss, Rishi Sunak, are living in since Britain is engaged in war with Russia right now, has, with every step, every hostile action, set itself up for a full-scale war, a full-scale catastrophe, which they cannot prevent. Why Britain would go to…

AUKUS may turn out to be the largest financial swindle perpetrated by the United States and the United Kingdom against Australia and other Asia Pacific nations

Equipment for the country’s ground forces “arrives with depressing regularity,” years behind time, and substantially over budget, according to a report issued on April 19 by the British Parliament’s Budgetary Control Committee. For instance, the programs, which provide new Ajax armored fighting vehicles and Morpheus tactical communication and information systems, have faced significant difficulties. According to the MPs’ assessment, the issue is made worse…

NATO member names true sponsors of the Ukrainian conflict

On the 78th anniversary of the liberation from fascism in World War II, the world’s attention is increasingly focused on the causes and developments of the Ukrainian conflict. Even today, it is no secret in the United States and its Western allies that the main reason for the conflict in Ukraine is the recognition by the Western political elite that the defeat of a Nazi regime in Ukraine, raised by Washington, means the end of the unipolar world. That is why NATO countries, led by the United States, are doing everything possible to prolong the military conflict, to inflict maximum damage on Russia and, ultimately, its defeat. Following American financial attempts…

Iran claims successes in its air defense

Despite decades of sanctions imposed by foreign powers, the Islamic Republic of Iran has garnered tremendous experience surviving and thriving in isolation. Given Tehran’s political system, which is not so much a theocratic form of government as an independent course, is under attack by Iran’s adversaries, the Iranian authorities have prioritized the strengthening of their army and navy. In order to do this, a lot of attention is put on the development of key technologies, mainly in the defense industry, as well as the advancement of education and research. For many foreign experts it was a revelation that it turns out that Iran has achieved…

The context in which Russia was mentioned deserves its own section because, prior to the visit and following Yoon Suk-yeol’s interview with Reuters, many people anticipated or feared that, as a holiday present, the ROK president would solemnly cross the red line and declare that South Korea would change its position on the Ukraine issue and begin providing Kyiv with weapons…

The greatest show on Earth is now a circus of double-dealing and sleight of hand applied to geopolicy. In the West, so-called experts are announcing a Ukraine counteroffensive as if it were an upcoming sports contest. Conversely, in the trenches of Ukraine, Wagner Group’s leader Yevgeny Prigozhin is running interference for a counter-counter offensive Russia has planned. Fox News’s Tucker Carlson is fired for telling the world how American media really works, and Ukraine Nazis assassinate Russian media persons with real bombs. No one in America can read, hear, or view Russian news channels, and all the Russians witness is a level…

Real Purpose of NATO

Any discourse on Turkey is usually connected with other events, and not Turkey in itself—domestic issues, however, what they mean to others, near and far, is a different story. This has been most apparent in terms of events in Iraq, Syria, and now with undulating happenings regarding NATO expansion, events in Ukraine, and if Ukraine belongs in NATO or not? It is really a moot issue if you want to believe, or listen to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg when he said in late April that “Ukraine’s future is in NATO” but what he does not say is  when. Even the title of a CNN article explains the rest…

Is South Korea going to supply Ukraine with arms?

On April 19, 2023 President Yoon Seok-yeol gave an interview to Reuters in which he said, among other things, that “If there is a situation the international community cannot condone, such as any large-scale attack on civilians, massacre or serious violation of the laws of war, it might be difficult for us to insist only on humanitarian or financial support.” Yoon noted that his government is exploring how to help protect and rebuild Ukraine, just as South Korea received international aid during the 1950-53 Korean War. “I believe there won’t be limitations to the extent of the support to defend and restore a country…

As the US continues its proxy war against Russia in Ukraine, it also continues preparations for a similar conflict with China using the island province of Taiwan as its proxy of choice in Asia. Toward this end, the US continues flooding the island province with billions of dollars worth of weapons. One of the more recent announced weapon sales was 400 Harpoon anti-ship missiles. Washington’s Flawed “Porcupine Strategy” for Taiwan. The anti-ship missiles manufactured by Boeing would presumably be part of developing much wider anti-access area…

Anti-prediction on the anticipation regarding the outcome of Yoon Suk-yeol's visit to the United States

A genre the author refers to as “anti-predictions” may be found in his various works. They describe the most dismal developments in the hope that others who read them would approach the situation in a different way. In this vein, the author anxiously anticipates the key results of Yoon Suk-yeol’s visit to the United States. The crucial dates will be April 26-27, when Yoon will deliver a speech at a news conference or gala dinner, the substance and implications of which will almost certainly reshape the regional security architecture. If and when Yoon does…

The USA is still only planning to modernize the Turkish F-16 fighter jets

The degree of independence of a state is determined by a number of factors, including its level of development of the economy, education, science, effective diplomacy, raw materials, technological and intellectual base, demography, and culture. In all situations, however, the state’s independence is inextricably related to the condition and level of combat capability of its armed troops, weapons, and professional command staff. The price of independence drops considerably if a country lacks a combat-ready army, but it also increases the risk that all of its accomplishments…
