Kiev Commits Energy Hari Kiri

Published time: 2 April, 2015

What the insane Washington-orchestrated civil war in Ukraine has not yet destroyed in Ukraine over the past year, now the conditions demanded by the US Treasury-controlled International Monetary Fund will. Kiev on March 13 received the first $5 billion tranche of a $17.5 billion three year IMF loan. It desperately needs the cash to avoid insolvency. However, in typical IMF policy, the aim of the money is to act as a poisoned “carrot” to force the victim country to undertake draconian “reforms” whose only effect will be to open the doors to foreign banks and multinationals to further rape and plunder what’s left of their economy. Now Kiev is about to commit energy Hari-Kiri to please the IMF and the US-imposed American-born Finance Minister, Natalie Ann Jaresko... To read further, click here

Turkey’s Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdog(an, is nothing if not a political survivor. After weathering a US led year-long attempt to oust him for his failure to execute a Turkish military ground war to topple Bashar al Assad in neighboring Syria, now Erdogan, a student of Realpolitik perhaps even more than the Koran, is looking abroad for new strategic allies. At a time when NATO, the Obama Administration and others are doing everything to demonize Russia’s Putin, using the pretext of Ukraine, Erdogan is moving significantly closer to—guess which world political leader. Yes, Vladimir Putin and Russia. The implications of a Turkish fundamental geopolitical realignment could have global consequences far beyond Turkey’s mere size or political weight...To read further, click here

Hinter der Fassade der Kooperation zwischen der Obama-Regierung in den USA und der Putin-Regierung in Russland über den Abbau des Chemiewaffenarsenals in Syrien und einer Einigung über das Atomprogramm mit dem Iran läuft eine eiskalte Eskalation von Spannungen, die in den westlichen Medien kaum zur Kenntnis genommen wird. Im Zentrum der Spannungen steht Washingtons hartnäckige Weigerung, in der Frage der »Raketenverteidigung« in Europa – die diesen Namen sicherlich zu Unrecht trägt – mit Russland zusammenzuarbeiten...

Unregulated drilling practices, rendered legal by the "Halliburton Loophole" engineered in 2005 by Vice President Dick Cheney, have had staggering health and environmental effects.

Publish date: 2 June 2010

In this fourth and final part, F. William Engdhal explains why the stakes for Washington in the Kyrgyzstan events are of vital geopolitical importance. Central Asia is key for Washington's strategy of global dominance, hinging on the militarization of the entire region. To this end, time-tested tactics of Low Intensity Warfare are generating the pretext for NATO's permanent expansion under the guise of the 'war on terror', with opium gainfully fueling the operations. In Central Asia, as Engdhal suggests, the survival of the U.S. empire hangs in the balance...Click here to continue reading

By F. William Engdahl
Publish date: 30 May 2010

In this third part of his work, F. William Engdhal examines the essential geopolitical importance of Kyrgyzstan for Russia, the second geopolitical player for the control of Eurasia's land space. Considering its military encirclement by NATO and the U.S., a neutral regime in Kyrgyzstan would contribute to stabilize Russia's regional environment, allowing it to reposition itself on the Central Asian chessboard. Suspected by some of having precipitated the violent events in Kyrgyzstan, Russia recently defined them as "unconstitutional"...Click here to continue reading

Continuing with F. William Engdhal's analysis of what is playing out in this prize region, part two examines China's geopolitical interest in Kyrgyzstan. Triggering the 2005 Tulip Revolution were, inter alia, the growing economic ties between the two countries, of which Washington disapproved. Today, China's economic clout remains its strongest weapon in aiming not only to regain a foothold in Kyrgyzstan, crucial for its expansion into Central Asia, but also to offset the destabilising effects of the U.S. military presence in that country and in the region...Click here to continue reading

The dust has far from settled in Kyrgyzstan after the April 2010 uprising and speculations continue to swirl around the signature behind the events. The least likely scenario is that of a spontaneous homegrown rebellion. Kyrgyzstan is a hub of competing interests involving both regional and extra-regional powers. F.

Voltaire Network has systematically exposed the financial ties between French-based NGO Reporters Without Borders and US Government/CIA front organizations. Officially devoted to "freedom of the press", RWB is best known for its smear campaigns against Washington's political foes like Cuba and Venezuela. RWB has recently added five new names to its "evil guys list", who also happen to fit in with Washington's destabilization agenda. F.

The passing of the "orange revolution" in the Ukraine has provided Russia with manifold strategic advantanges, plus the latitude to play the energy card as a diplomatic and political lever, seriously upsetting the U.S. apple cart. The ripple effects of Russia's stronger hand are posing a grave challenge to Washington's global influence and assumed sole hegemony. In this second part of his article, Engdhal dissects the far reaching implications of this crucial shift...Click here to continue reading

Publish date: 24 March 2010

The Ukrainian "orange revolution" lived through one presidential term. Like the rest of the coloured revolutions, it basically amounted to a coup d'état orchestrated by Washington through the manipulation of public opinion. As usual, it was the economic results of the team in power that sparked widespread disenchantment. While promising western prosperity, the government's only goal was Ukraine's accession to NATO. It's defeat - and Viktor Yanukovich's victory - deprives Washington of an indispensable piece to achieve the encirclement of Russia...Click here to continue reading

Behind the smoke, rubble and unending drama of human tragedy in the hapless Caribbean country, a drama is in full play for control of what geophysicists believe may be one of the world's richest zones for hydrocarbons-oil and gas outside the Middle East, possibly orders of magnitude greater than that of nearby Venezuela. While bringing to light the geostrategic honeypot that Haiti has turned into, Engdahl also states his case against the advocates of the 'Peak Oil' theory...Click here to continue reading

Inaugurated in February 2008, this "frozen Noah's Ark" is back in the news following UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon's recent visit ahead of the key international climate talks in Copenhagen in December 2009. In this article, written in December 2007, F. William Engdahl comments that, when Gates, Rockefeller and Agribusiness get together on a project, it is prudent to take notice. If past deeds are any indicator, those who have taken it upon themselves to locate and store seeds in this secure facility are not benevolent servants of humanity, nor the preservers of life...

By F. William Engdahl
Publish date: 17 October 2009

Relations between the US and Bolivia have been tense ever since Evo Morales became president in December 2005, pledging to nationalize his country's vast gas reserves. They hit a critical point in September 2008 when Morales ordered the expulsion of the U.S. ambassador, accusing him of fomenting the civil unrest that threatened not only the country's first indigenous Indian president but the unity of the nation itself. The latest news report that Russia will sign an agreement with the Bolivian government to explore and produce natural gas is a significant setback for US domination of its traditional Latin American sphere of influence...

One of the great mysteries surrounding the spread of GMO plants around the world since the first commercial crops were released in the early 1990's in the USA and Argentina has been the absence of independent scientific studies of possible long-term effects of a diet of GMO plants on humans or even rats. Now the real reason has come to light: the GMO agribusiness companies like Monsanto, BASF, Pioneer, Syngenta and others prohibit independent research... Click here to continue reading

Publish date: 13 July 2009

After the tragic events of July 5 in China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, it would be useful to look more closely into the actual role of the US Government's "independent" NGO, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). All indications are that the US, once more acting through its "private" NGO is massively intervening into the internal politics of China. Engdahl's article ties in with Voltaire Network's consistent reporting on the covert action of the NED and "sister" organizations aimed at destabilizing countries of strategic interest for Washington under the guise of liberty and democracy...

In a just-released position paper on GMO foods, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) states that 'GM foods pose a serious health risk' and calls for a moratorium on GMO foods. Citing several animal studies, the AAEM concludes 'there is more than a casual association between GMO foods and adverse health effects' and that 'GM foods pose a serious health risk in the areas of toxicology, allergy and immune function, reproductive health, and metabolic, physiologic and genetic health.' The report is a devastating blow to the multibillion dollar international agribusiness industry, most especially to Monsanto Corporation, the world's leading purveyor of GMO seeds and related herbicides...

President Barack Obama's stop in Turkey was hardly an afterthought, a "while I'm in the neighborhood" visit and it was far more momentous than the president's speech would suggest. For Washington, Turkey today has become a geopolitical "pivot state" which is in the position to tilt the Eurasian power equation towards Washington or significantly away from it, depending on how Turkey develops its ties with Moscow and its role regarding key energy pipelines...

Turkish President Abdullah Gül and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed a joint declaration in Moscow on 28 February 2009 aimed at deepening friendly relations and improving multidimensional cooperation between the two countries, with the Russian side defining the declaration as a "strategic document."
