Russia hit Keev with missiles today, first time in a month. >Ukraine said the strike hit a rail car repair works; Moscow said it had destroyed tanks sent by Eastern European countries to Ukraine.
Also the US is letting Venezuela ship some oil to Europe


I dont know how useful it is to bunch everything together but
It sucks to see the people of Yemen die, up to 18 millions estimated by UN and nobody gives a shit.

Wales also kicked Ukraine out of the current football thing

We have to cancel Wales now1


Since this thread isn't limited to Ukro discussion, what do you all think of the Western Papua conflict? It's been going on since the annexation of Dutch New Guinea by Indonesia and was only escalated during Suharto's genocidal reign. From the outside it just seems like a discriminated native population's struggle for self determination, though there isn't too much info on this subject that doesn't come from Jakarta so I'm not too well informed on the subject.
If any of you anons have any pdfs, articles or any more wisdom, share it by all means


The Ukro thread isn't in practice limited to Ukro discussion either, so why the fuck does this exist


Ukro thread just got uncycled anyway


This new OP sucks as well, still uses outdated links.


this should be the link for the current map imo



US is ramping up africa ops to make sure to keep strategic positions.
Meanwhile, russia is using its trade&mercenaries to get closer to africans nations that are sick of the west and offer alternatives security/military deals
france is getting thrown out



>condense every conflict into one masterthread
Great way to kill the board, galaxybrains.


to discuss geopolitics, and not be spammed with war porn, derails, various trolls and shitposters, discussion of russian imperialism and all the cultural shit linked with that shitshow
guess what, geopolitics is not about ukraine war itself, but about its results on the world stage, and there are lot of important shit happening in africa and oceania as well (solomon island-china deal)


go to ukraine thread ? the only real relevant info is
>the US is letting Venezuela ship some oil to Europe


Then make just a dedicated geopolitics thread and don't just basically drown out discussion about the greatest war in Europe since 1945.
>(solomon island-china deal)
Then make your own thread about that, has literally nothing to do with Ukraine.

Hey, we should also merge the COVID thread into a general geopolitics thread, or the US politics thread, why not? Let's just close the board, have just one big megathread for everything.


btw, did you know nuland went to sri lanka and the protests degenerated just after ? really makes you think


>Then make just a dedicated geopolitics thread
are you fucking retarded ? what do you think is that thread ? hint : look at the title


This thread is a piss-poor attempt to drown out Ukraine war discussion, do you think imma gonna discuss Solomon Islands, EU, Venezuela, DPRK, China, Ukraine, Swaziland, India, Pakistan, etc. in one single thread?


File: 1654459809768.png (1.06 MB, 800x801, ClipboardImage.png)

"Ukraine conflict but also everywhere else megathread"

hmmm does this mean this is WW3 first megathread?


fuck, I just understood, this is NOT the geopolitical thread, its just the uncycled ukraine thread


>This thread is a piss-poor attempt to drown out Ukraine war discussion
Thats what I think too, but I think its overly optimistic about us talking about other shit before its over
Do we want to make a new one or what? I guess Id do it before we stick in that shit
welcome to garden eden ;)


I almost find it disrespectful even to the ukrops to simply not talk about it anymore. When its over its over but its with the supply collapse propably the most defining event of 2022


Yemen needs to be studied from a communist perspective and then apply that knowledge for a possible future PPW. They're the only guerrilla force fighting against a 5th generation military equipped with drones and shit instead of just random park rangers and construction workers in the middle of the Indian/Philipine jungle.


The secret ingredient is Iran


r u a hot gril


yes but lets not underestmate the fighting spirit too


the real ingredient is that they have Iranian missiles, luckily if you don't have weapons from Iran you can use civilian goods to create rockets


this is how Palestine can still win

jesus, russians aren't human(Do you want to get nuked for ban evasion again?)


The Americans imposed shock doctrine on Russia in the 90s and created the worst economic crisis in a nonwar situation which led to this. But Russian oligarchs also made out rich so it must be the Muscovite ethnicity that is the problem


uygha even the most hardcore neocons were comfortable with the soviet union being around st that point and thought it was a mistake for it to fall apart so suddenly
the collapse of the soviet union was pushed for strongly among the masses and it was soviet bureaucrats that engineered it to mass approval


Capitalists aren't human.


>The Americans imposed shock doctrine
Last time I checked it was guys like Yeltsin and Putin who did that although Americans certainly helped in creating the conditions for this.


>it was guys like Yeltsin
>Americans certainly helped


i think this is kind of right though.
We all know we are heading toward WW3 but all the individual indicators of it are hidden away in a bunch of different individual generals. I like the idea that this thread should be about the geopolitical big picture as we head into this new era


Are Yeltsin and Putin american now?


Yeltsin lost the election, it was rigged and the Americans helped him. Zyuganov won.

If this shit goes on, Ill in the week (at work :P) look into how to make a site purely for a ukraine cyclical. Thats my job after all.
Is that neccessary? At least make it a collextive jannyhood decision.
I think youre seeing quite some disagreement, and if you care for this board youre sleeping over it.


>WW3 starts
Totally irrelevant nothingburger. Where are the leftists? It's just interimperial competition. Mods, delete this thread.


cause its shut down everwhere, and I think we all rather want a communist bent rather than going o the tsar loving sphere of the rwapodcast. Even if you disagree.


Multipolarity and the decline of the American empire abroad is good for communists domestically.
And its collapse into civil war will be good for all the countries under the Damocles sword of mutt Marines and bombers.


I don't think anyone is actually stopping anyone from just making another Ukraine thread, it just got uncycled because jannies are retards who forgot that the reason they uncycled it is the exact same reason they cycled it to begin with


Unless Russia get rekt or get quagmired which is clearly the objective of Washington and which is possibly what's happening there. Burgers want to neuter Russia in order to concentrate on China after to keep their domination on the world.


The Ukrainians literally persecute and slaughter communists. Mikhail Kononovich and Aleksandr Kononovich, chairmen of the Ukrainian Komsomol, are still in SBU/Right Sector torture basements. Two comrades probably of a similar age than most here.


ok Ill try it in the morning then. Use this and update some links if nobody is quicker

Iran does that too, yet it wouldn't be a victory for the left if the US brought their democracy over there, like always there are many factors at play.


I hope this isn't true, because I think the ukrops are retarded enough to pull some shit like that.


Yeah but one has to compile all the links for the intro posts, of which many of the original thread are outdated/got banned, and I guess everyone is too lazy to do that.

Start with Southfront, the ASBMilitary telegram, and a few Twitter accounts off the top of my head:


Use those.


Lay off OP guys, he was acting in good faith.


Sure, a Russian victory would strengthen the Communist Parties over there (of Ukraine, Donezk, Lugansk, etc.)


Fall of USSR != shock doctrine


Containing NATO is heckin based no matter who does it


The only thing Russia did for now is consolidate and extend NATO.


>actual leftists have no stake in this fight
Preventing WWIII and to stop NATO encroachment on Russia and return to a collective security system is the interests of anti-imperialists. If by leftists you mean the Democratic Party, the DSA, Maotists, Armchairs, Anarcho-Smashies, etc. then maybe yes.


yeah lol the only thing Hamas did is making Israel bombing Palestine.
Apropos - maybe listen to Palestinians or Cuba for once.


>muh NATO is more united than ever!!!
Lol dude. Italy started paying gas on rubles, Hungary is a huge pain in the ass for Washington, Turkey just attacked NATO-backed troops in Iraq and Syria and blocks Finland and Sweden entry into the alliance.


literal victim blaming. Isnt a secret what NATOs goals are.
Keep Russia out, keep Germany contained, keep Europe on a leash. Wasnt that literally Nuland?


>actual leftists should stick their heads in the sand until real communism magically appears
Finland is a nothing burger with like 5 million people, also is Turkey still blocking that or no? Turkey already announced their Kurdish invasion iirc so they probably folded already. Yeah as already said, capitalists in Western Europe are looking at LNG prices and questioning their American allegiance more than ever right now


>keep Europe on a leash
I fucking wish lma


It's not just the problem of sidelining the massive issue of Ukraine, the thread also seeks to merge every single geopolitical conflict into a general, which is, beyond and ideological perspective, objectively bad for the board.


Fact is, weapon market is booming and Finland/Sweden are on the verge of joining, while it was absolutely not guaranteed for Ukraine to join without hostility. It's obviously a catastrophic situation for Russia whatever cope you can cook up.


That is exactly what NATO does, yes:
NATO Secretary General Hastings Ismay said that in the 50s


srlsy depends. Russia could at least plan it. Them aligning stronger with China is propably good for us. I hope China makes some socdem pressure.
Yeah it aint good, for Russia it rly was a lose lose situation so they took the lose with an end.


>It's obviously a catastrophic situation for Russia whatever cope you can cook up.
Why should I cope about something that they were doing anyway? NordStream II was killed right before the war. NATO's aims were always open, whether Russia would have intervened or not.

But even if what you are saying is true about NATO (I really don't feel it), the situation for Russia is far, far less catastrophic than it was anticipated by Western analysists. Ironically, their military situation was progressing slower than expected, the only area in which it was assumed they still are world class. But economically they have been showing to be surprisingly resiliant, the area which was expected to be the Russian achilles heel. When it comes to diplomacy outside NATO, Russia didn't face any expected backlash, quite the opposite. Due to rising energy prices, even the fact that they sell a lower amount to India/Pakistan/China (the majority of the world's population) results in an expected increase in revenue.


China will eventually align with Russia if their military operation fails hard because they don't want a balkanized/destabilized great power which happens to be a rival of their main concurrent.


already happening, Pal. Theres no backwards for Russia anymore.

NATO countries are dumping their weapons stock on Ukraine, lose billions in price hikes, while kickstarting alternatives to the petrodollar and Western trading system, which considerably weaken the power of US imposed sanctions, the recent belly dance to Venezuela show a new balance of powers is coming and it might leave breathing space to socialists states.


Pretending like the US wouldn't invent new reasons for NATO to stay alive had Russia not invaded is cope
Ah OK he said it's "to keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down." Now with Germany as the economic center of Europe, it's clear what effect that now has
They already announced a 'strategic partnership' in a 5k word document released in February


>Now with Germany as the economic center of Europe
with those Energy prices this will be it for that.


Cycling or uncycling threads isn't a matter of the thread's content being an important topic, but a matter of it's overall activity so the subject doesn't end up clogging up the catalog.


ok then just be so fair and also dont janny new threads about the topic away. No cyclical means no containment thread.
Why would you contain something that has no engagement anyway.


Cycling the thread is what you do to threads you don't want archived.


fair I guess. I am going to sleep and see how things get. Have a good one leftypol

theyre much more popular

if you don't think america was rooting for the death of the USSR from the moment it was born I have a 1 trillion dollar IMF loan for you


they're also much more revisionist


Revisionism is good, Marxism is not religious dogma.


sensible leftists: I am not a Lib
same leftists: Russia is morally bad, theyre not bound to history or material forces


They have abandoned class struggle for struggle of civilizations. Class traitors in short. If you believe something likewise you're objectively worse than a trotskyist.


Not bound to history or material forces? Seems like Russia is Posadist gang.


>the child prostitutes
anticommunists are not human beings and no action taken against them is criminal or unpermissable


You're BORING!



there are multiple factions of them. Some are indeed traitors, some, mostly on the ground are not and dont deserve that insult.


The exact same logic is applicable to the American Empire, what the actual fuck are you even arguing?


>marxism is not religious dogma
no but revisionism is


It's called scientific innovation.


glad you learned something today. Yes of cause the same is also true for the USA. Welcome to Marxism.


The great scientific innovation of… opportunism.


File: 1654469442645.jpg (37.28 KB, 600x901, glowman.jpg)



As opposed to armchairism.


opportunism is in general only opportunism when it doesnt work out. Lenin was what youd call opportunist and revisionist, Fidel even more so. And? The outcome is what matters.


its like the difference between a revolution and a revolt?
The latter loses. Just look into your history book.


Seriously, that post should be required reading for all anons to teach them to identify glow posting. It's such a good example of gaslighting.


>both sides are imperialist.
this is only true in the most shallow and loose way possible and is such a profoundly lazy analysis that has been refuted time and time again on here.

1. Russian Federation is itself a product of American imperialism. Russian Federation wouldn't even exist, let alone be the imperialist boogeyman libs make it out to be, if it weren't for American interventionism.

2. Modern Ukraine is also a product of decades of American interventions, soft coups, and efforts at destabilization, regulatory capture, privatization, etc.

3. Russia invading its neighbor after 8 years of its neighbor ethnically cleansing Russians is a lot more understandable than America meddling to make all this happen from across the planet.


It's really not, believe or not there are tens of thousands of communists around the world having this particular stance. People like you love to caress the idea of burger agents doing psyops but this isn't it. The only thing going on here is fedjacketting by doomers desperate to see something of value in this war.


I saw a buuunch of Nazis wandering into prison.


(or better)


That opinion is wrong and appealing to some mythical popular opinion doesn't make it correct. We need to be ever vigilant whenever a post suggests that leftypol should abide by some popular opinion.

Damn, America really is just constantly fighting the demons it created itself. Feels a bit like that old Goethe poem.


dont we have a leftypol constitution for that, even?


The majority of the population supported preserving the USSR and socialism. The fall of the USSR was orchestrated from above by a bureaucrat coup.


you are doing an armchairism right now


I though about actually fighting but its my exam year and my gf would murder me before. Life is rough man. Also youd call it adventurism., theres no right for you.


I think you meant to reply to someone else


No, I meant it as opposite to armchairism.


Almost everything is blowback when you're the global hegemon who thinks that everywhere is your backyard


>America backs a dictator who does a coup, steals elections and dissolves parliament and offers him Friedman economics after Gorbachev rejected them, the same economics that Chile suffered, designed to enrich American and Russian oligarchs and impoverish the majority of the country, leading to the reactionary, authoritarian character of the Russian state today, which is supported by a population that remembers the 90s all too well
>Westoid leftists: "and that's why the capitalist Russian Empire must be destroyed by NATO"


- someone finally standing up to the endless mischief and expansionism of the empire has value
- defending DLPRs and kicking nazis and nationalists out of eastern ukraine has value
- making the empire shoot its entire wad of economic warfare and defeating all of it and making it backfire on them has value
- both-sides cucks getting btfo on leftypol has value


Except your trying to use this dogshit logiv to simp for Russia and encourage others to as well, why?


>simp for Russia and encourage others to as well
This is the problem with the anti-Z liberals. They think that fighting/ending the war in the Donbass and containing NATO means you have to love Putin and Russian capitalism, which was basically created by the US to begin with. This argument is both stupid and made in bad faith

>and making it backfire on them
This, any actual communists in Germany or Britain who want to radicalize the masses will find them very open to ideas once the fertilizer shortage around April results in worsened harvests and the fuel price hikes result in increased prices across the board, because everything uses fuel to produce and transport. Lots of people in the west are going to be made very uncomfortable come winter. And in the US, this only accelerates the pre-existing economic conditions that were giving people class consciousness anyways.


>Oh, you support resistances to American empire in the Middle East so you must support either Shiite theocracy or "Assadism"
>Oh, you support resistances to American empire in eastern Europe so you're a "Putinist"


ahh fuck. how bad is it gonna be?


Russia is capitalist and I oppose that. Ignoring why that is true, is that what you irrelevant nerds want to hear? Is my internet opposition to capitalism supposed to have an effect? Capitalism is a global condition today and as long as that is true then I actually support Russia's nuclear deterrence against the West's


Fucking nobody, NOBODY, on /leftypol/ supported Ukraine's glowie installed government, the repression against Russian speakers, the Banderites, the NATO imperialism, or aggression against Donbass and Lugansk. But the absolute second Russia did something that would stop it, suddenly we're "unprincipled leftists", and "Eastern imperialism okay", and other dogshit excuses. Really fucking puts the cortex in a vortex.


But did you consider that Russia is capitalist, tankie? This fact really gets the noggin joggin'


If Russia really wanted to stop it they would be socialist


Are you really so naïve that you think it's so simple for any country? Especially one that had a socialist government that failed and then was couped? >>1004826


lol do we actually have people who think the russian government is in any way interested in socialism


>Tfw ziggas crying about how the USSR was couped yet shill the protégé of the actual man that couped it and was Washington’s man in Moscow


Why on earth would they be after the US helped install an oligarchy? The oligarchs should be socialist? You don't understand anything, younrefuse historical context, you are a moralizing Westerner
>anti-Z imagining a world where this wasn't the case and supporting nonexistent socialist movements in Russia


>and then was couped?
Yeah and who was put in power after that coup…?



they tried that for 75 years and got btfo by the empire (with some assist from libs and anarkids who called them capitalist and imperialist anyway). it's not easy for a society to go back to something they tried for so long and got fucked for in the end.


The opposite of socialists? And your claim is that only socialists should be supported, despite only two irrelevant countries in existence having any semblance of a socialist state? This is strangely entitled, as if Russia should be expected to bounce back within 30 years after the USSR fell and shock doctrine destroyed the country
I imagine this is your reaction when you read any history and wonder why the oppressed people didn't simply do communism


no it's up the proletariat there is no "russia" my point is this stupid war is a result of capitalism
they got btfo by burraucrats not America


the current president of Russia


Yes, capitalism installed by the West. Shock doctrine that was applied to both Russia and Ukraine. Gorbachev probably wanted a transition to capitalism more like China's, and this was prevented via Yeltsin's dictatorship.


dengist russia would've been pretty beautiful ngl. it wouldve forced post-sino-soviet split china to try a different approach to communism to differentiate themselves from the gorbyists.


Yes, I must agree with Xi that, assuming Russia was destined to go capitalist anyways, they should have enforced the single party state and retained autonomy and then chose it by choice, instead of hanging on by a thread and then having it forced on them.


It's like how it makes sense to support Mengistu despite the Military Council being the better option and Mengistu playing the key role in liquidating it. Sometimes your superior option is eliminated by your shittier option, but the shitty option is still better than the other options.
Western leftists really do be like "I voted Obama/Hillary/Biden/Harris as the lesser evil" for years then shit their pants with rage when people take a similarly pragmatic approach to global politics. Maybe burgers should stop playing pick and choose with lesser evilism or socialism when it suits them and people would take them more seriously.


I co-sign this


these MF’s talking about “geopolitics” like they even understand it let alone have any real investment in or effect on it


You're right, ultimately the only two stances are pro-Russia or pro-NATO.


It is true that only one of those two sides will 'win' in this conflict, yes


imo there's a better way that OP could've named this thread


It's a coordinated effort. The actual Ukraine thread, after it was uncycled, just now got spammed to death with random posts till it reached bump limit after people decided to continue to use it.

Clearly there is a group of people who are very unhappy with how the Ukraine thread unfolded.

'The era of US military dominance in the world is over': Nicolas Maduro

On 11 June, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi welcomed his Venezuelan counterpart, Nicolas Maduro, in an official ceremony at the Saadabad complex in Tehran.

Maduro arrived to the Islamic Republic on 10 June, leading a high-level delegation for a wide range of cooperation talks.

Over the past several years, Iran and Venezuela have been the targets of a severe economic war launched by the west.

The bonds of cooperation between the two countries have proved to be integral to overcoming unilateral sanctions.

During a conversation with HispanTV, Maduro highlighted how Tehran and Caracas are at the forefront of creating a new world that is free of imperialism and colonialism.

>“The era of the United States military dominance in the world is over,”

the Venezuelan president stated.

>“We are living through a time of geopolitical transition that will define the destiny of the 21st century,”

Maduro went on to add, referring to the repercussions of Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine, launched in response to NATO’s expansionist agenda.

>“This is the century of the decline of hegemonic power, and Iran and Venezuela are at the frontline of shaping this process,”

Maduro said.

During the interview, the Venezuelan leader also announced that he will sign a 20-year cooperation plan with his Iranian counterpart.

>“We are going to have a complete day of work with President Raisi and his cabinet … I have come with a solid team to build this new stage. We are working on a roadmap for cooperation that will be signed tomorrow, establishing plans and strategies for the next 20 years of development between Iran and Venezuela,”

Maduro told HispanTV.

He said that Tehran and Caracas
>“have placed their sights on the medium and long term [so that] our strategic alliance will be unbreakable.”

Maduro thanked the Islamic Republic for its help in overcoming the unilateral US sanctions that nearly destroyed Venezuela’s oil industry.

Specifically, Maduro expressed his gratitude to Iran for sending several oil tankers of fuel, additives, and thinners, as well as providing Venezuela with crucial equipment and technical assistance to restore their oil refineries.

Earlier this year, oil industry analysts revealed that Iran’s support had doubled the oil production of Venezuela from 2021. Just last month, the Islamic Republic shipped over one and a half million barrels of gasoline and additives to Venezuela.

The Venezuelan president also confirmed his country’s support for the people of Palestine, describing their struggle as
>“the most sacred cause of humanity.”

He also condemned the west and its allies for remaining silent in the face of Israel’s human rights violations and the genocide carried out on the Palestinian people, and said that Iran and Venezuela will always stand with Palestine.

The Venezuelan president arrived in Iran as part of a regional tour that also saw him visit Turkey and Algeria.

Maduro started his tour this week after Washington arbitrarily excluded Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua from the Summit of the Americas, which took place in the US.

Guiadomos, is it over?


Love it
Nice "President of Venezuela" you have there, USA


How likely do the Anons in this thread think it is that World War III could break out in the near future (by the end of this decade), and if it does happen, do you think like I do that it would probably stay Conventional, 🤔?


I don't know but kill yourself cuck queer

Juan Guaido was kicked out of a restaurant in Cojedes, Venezuela.


That depends on how bad things get in the US, if the US government is existentially threatened by rebellion at home it will attempt to direct that anger outward at either China or Russia

Have radicals smelled blood in the water now that the US is buddying up to Venezuela?

"Israel" blew up Damascus International Airport
>Damascus International Airport will be out of use for some time after the Israeli attack, likely weeks, possible months. Planes unable to move, runways taken out, big strikes on each runway. Remaining flights redirected to Aleppo, huge cost, air travel in Syria paralysed.

Reposting some @joshua_landis tweets, paraphrased:
War in Idlib between Assad/Russia and jihadis is about to kick back up again

Meanwhile, the jihadi leader in Idlib, al-Jolani is continuing his campaign to find Western acceptance and support. He was interviewed on PBS last year, hopefully that remains his peak

Landis' summary of Russian economic activity in Syria:
>Russia is Increasing its Economic Activity in Syria, not decreasing it b/c of Ukraine, claims Syrian opp.
>Russia has the upper hand in the shipping sector, as well as oil and gas. Now, it is seeking control of the transport sector
My take: all economic activity in Syria is good considering they are facing the harshest sanctions the US has ever imposed on anyone. They are also set to join China's BRI. Multipolarity let's fucking go, etc.

Juan Guiado has now declared himself interim president of Taiwan.


>The Shah suffered from gallstones that would require prompt surgery. He was offered treatment in Switzerland, but insisted on treatment in the United States. President Carter did not wish to admit Mohammad Reza to the U.S. but came under pressure from many quarters, with Henry Kissinger phoning Carter to say he would not endorse the SALT II treaty that Carter had just signed with the Soviet Union unless the former Shah was allowed into the United States, reportedly prompting Carter more than once to hang up his phone in rage in the Oval Office and shout "Fuck the Shah!".
>His prolonged stay in the United States was extremely unpopular with the revolutionary movement in Iran, which still resented the United States' overthrow of Prime Minister Mosaddegh and the years of support for the Shah's rule. The Iranian government demanded his return to Iran, but he stayed in the hospital.[319] Mohammad Reza's time in New York was highly uncomfortable; he was under a heavy security detail as every day, Iranian students studying in the United States gathered outside his hospital to shout "Death to the Shah!", a chorus that Mohammad Reza heard.
>He left the United States on 15 December 1979 and lived for a short time in the Isla Contadora in Panama. This caused riots by Panamanians who objected to the Shah being in their country. General Omar Torrijos, the dictator of Panama kept Mohammad Reza as a virtual prisoner at the Paitilla Medical Center, a hospital condemned by the former Shah's American doctors as "an inadequate and poorly staffed hospital", and in order to hasten his death allowed only Panamanian doctors to treat his cancer.[325] General Torrijos, a populist left-winger had only taken in Mohammad Reza under heavy American pressure, and he made no secret of his dislike of Mohammad Reza, whom he called after meeting him "the saddest man he had ever met".[326] When he first met Mohammad Reza, Torrijos taunted him by telling him "it must be hard to fall off the Peacock Throne into Contadora" and called him a "chupon", a Spanish term meaning an orange that has all the juice squeezed out of it, which is slang for someone who is finished.
>Torrijos added to Mohammad Reza's misery by making his chief bodyguard a militantly Marxist sociology professor who spent much time lecturing Mohammad Reza on how he deserved his fate because he had been a tool of the "American imperialism" that was oppressing the Third World, and charged Mohammad Reza a monthly rent of US$21,000, making him pay for all his food and the wages of the 200 National Guardsmen assigned as his bodyguards.
>The only consolation for Mohammad Reza during his time in Panama were letters from Princess Soraya saying that she still loved him and wanted to see him one last time before he died.[331] Mohammad Reza in the letters he sent to Paris declared he wanted to see Soraya one last time as well, but said that the Empress Farah could not be present, which presented some complications as Farah was continually by his deathbed.
>n 1979, the Shah left Iran. First, the Shah found refuge in the Bahamas but was later forced to leave. He then sought treatment in Mexico. Multiple recommendations urged the Shah to seek treatment in the United States. In response, the Shah stated:
>"How could I go to a place [USA] that had undone me?"
>In his hospital bed, the Shah was asked to describe his feelings for Iran and its people and to define the country. The Shah, a fervent nationalist, responded "Iran is Iran." After pausing for minutes, he said "Its land, people, and history," and "Every Iranian has to love it." He continued on to repeat "Iran is Iran" over and over.[340] Shortly after, the Shah slipped into a coma and died at 09:15 AM on 27 July 1980 at age 60. He kept a bag of Iranian soil under his death bed.


I mean that’s what WoosWoos claimed


Lmao what a loser. Wasn't he trying to butter up China before? I guess he realized they weren't going to take any hard measures against Russia for them, given how they sold out their commercial interest to America.


So if Finland and Sweden aren't able to join NATO before the end of this year, and the Ukraine conflict wraps up before that, could Russia possibly invade Finland/Sweden?


>reportedly prompting Carter more than once to hang up his phone in rage in the Oval Office and shout "Fuck the Shah!".
Based Carter


I really hope this happens.


lol no, both countries are members of the EU


worth remembering the entire reason the shah was allowed in the US is because he was one of chase bank's most profitable clients and their CEO david rockefeller pulled strings to make it happen

Perhaps a bit offtopic, but as a tourist drawn here mostly by revulsion for MSM's complete abandonment of reality, here are two aggregators (still not a replacement for cultivating news feeds in a proper feed reader) to keep an eye out of the MSM blob and maybe find some publications to follow on their own, at this time where it seems we are heading for a cold war overt realignment and all the propaganda that comes with it:

>HISTORY — Monthly Review began publication in New York City in May 1949. The first issue featured the lead article “Why Socialism?” by Albert Einstein. From the beginning, Monthly Review spoke for a critical but spirited socialism, independent of any political organization. In an era of Cold War repression, the magazine published pioneering analyses of political economy, imperialism, and Third World struggles, drawing on the rich legacy of Marxist thought without being bound to any narrow view or party line.
>In 2006, MR began a daily web magazine, MRzine, which in 2017 was migrated to a new project, MR Online, a forum for collaboration and communication between radical activists, writers, and scholars around the world.

And lighter, more of a curio:
>Rad Indie Media (RIM) is a radical media aggregate featuring the work of independent journalists and outlets who produce content that challenge official narratives, dig deep to root issues, and report on the stories and people silenced by corporate outlets.
>RIM is a not-for-profit project started by Lee Camp and Eleanor Goldfield. We’re not supported by any outside funders or entities, so if you can donate to help keep the site going, please do. We do not accept any offers for advertising or sponsorship.


That's not me, 😂!

>Torrijos died at the age of 52 when his aircraft, a DeHavilland Twin Otter (DHC-6), registered as FAP-205 of the Panamanian Air Force, crashed at Cerro Marta, in Coclesito, near Penonomé, Panama on July 31, 1981. The aircraft disappeared from radar during light weather, but due to the limited nature of Panama's radar coverage at the time, the plane was not reported missing for nearly a day. The crash site was located several days later, and the body of Torrijos was recovered by a Special Forces team in the first few days of August.
>Torrijos's death generated charges and speculation that he was the victim of an assassination plot. For instance, in pre-trial hearings in Miami in May 1991, Manuel Noriega's attorney, Frank Rubino, was quoted as saying "General Noriega has in his possession documents showing attempts to assassinate General Noriega and Mr. Torrijos by agencies of the United States."[10] Those documents were not allowed as evidence in the trial because the presiding judge agreed with the U.S. government's claim that their public mention would violate the Classified Information Procedures Act. In 1981, Soviet news agency TASS also claimed that the U.S. had caused Torrijos's death.[11]

Russian Escalations in Syria Risk Direct Conflict With U.S., Military Officials Warn
>AL-UDEID AIR BASE, Qatar—Russian forces have conducted a series of operations against the U.S.-led coalition in Syria this month, including one this week at a strategically located base in the southern part of the country, U.S. military officials said.

>The Russian actions have alarmed U.S. military officials, who are concerned that a miscalculation might escalate into an unintended conflict between the U.S. and Russian forces in Syria. Tensions between the two countries are already high following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February and American efforts to arm the Ukraine military to defeat Russian forces there.

>On Wednesday, Russia carried out airstrikes at the al-Tanf garrison, near Syria’s border with Jordan in southeast Syria, where U.S. troops have a train-and-advise mission with local fighters to prevent a resurgence of Islamic State.

>Russia notified the U.S. through a communications line set up years ago that it was conducting the airstrikes in response to an alleged attack against Syrian government forces that the Russians defend that may have resulted in injuries and destroyed a vehicle.

>Soon after, Russian jet fighters, including two Su-35s and one Su-24, were observed traversing the area over al-Tanf before striking a combat outpost at the garrison, a U.S. military official said.

>The advance notice of the strike suggested to U.S. officials that the Russian military wasn’t actively targeting American troops but was harassing the U.S. mission in Syria—a tactic that Russian forces have previously used, resulting in some close calls over the years.


>U.S. military officials declined to provide specifics of any of the other incidents they said have occurred in the past couple of weeks.

The Resistance has grown to become what it is starting from a small endeavor including a handful of people at their head Sayyed Abbas al Moussawi . The Resistance has grown in all directions . It has grown in ethics and grown in commitment and has grown in number too and in weapons and in faith and in popularity and in spirituality. From all sides it has grown to become what it is . And with the Resistance has grown its leader Sayyed Hasan from a young student studying Religion to a freedom fighter to a wise leader insightful, courageous, honest and responsible . Nurtured by its own experience in the various fields the Resistance came to become what it is . There is nothing that the Resistance neglected. It explored everything touched at everything from the spiritual to the emotional and material , From the Mosque to the family and society to love and marriage and death and disabilities and treason and confrontation and infiltration and military endeavors and sacrifices and gains and losses , There is not one field that was not explored together with the experience with the enemy that was also human and from it so many lessons were drawn and so many truths revealed. This is the richness of the Resistance and its encompassing nature for everything was dealt with and nothing left unattended, and this is why this Resistance became what it is : a real revolution and a revelation . When the Resistance pioneers went to Tehran to congratulate the Islamic Revolution on its success they took with them 10 thousand dollars as a gift to the Revolution . The Iranians were surprised that instead of asking for money those pioneers had brought money to the Revolution that they had collected . They heard from Ayatollah Khomeini that victory was written on their foreheads . When they came back to Lebanon they resumed their acts of Resistance inspired by what they have seen in Iran, and then Iran started sending people to train the freedom fighters and sent some weapons too. But the endeavor was a Resistance endeavor, a Lebanese endeavor from A to Z. . Many joined the ranks of the Resistance and answered the call . The people rallied in favor of those principles that are still alive in society of rectitude and honor and sacrifice . This Resistance was the Resistance of the people that never brought an element alien to society whether spiritual , moral or practical. Everything was in tune with the society and environment , and the society and environment made room for the Resistance . The Resistance filled the place given and filled the ground . And this is not over yet and the Resistance will continue to grow and gain ground because it is deeply rooted in the earth with various branches watered with blood and sweat . It has passed all the tests and proved itself on the ground as irreplaceable and victorious It is the real challenge that the predator world order is facing right now, Let us not be gullible and naive and think that what is challenging the world powers right now are Russia or China . These 2 are competitors to the US belonging to the same realm. They have their material and personal interest as a priority and not the welfare of humanity and not the well being of man , They are monsters even though less monstrous than their US master but they are not from a different quality and they are immersed in materiality which is a real curse on mankind . What is challenging the predator world order right now is not rogue Putin or greedy China , It is the Revolution in Iran and the Resistance in Lebanon and Palestine and Yemen, and also the struggling countries like Cuba and Venezuela . Let us not be deluded and take things for what they are not . What is drawing the policy of the monster world wide is the Iranian threat on the western ideology and the Resistance threat . And this is what the monster does not want you to know. and for this purpose has introduced this fake polarity with Russia or China for one to overlook the real polarity where the Spirit and the highest moral principles and the temerity of the people and the welfare of man are brought in to threaten the monster and shake its throne and rock its very existence.


Ukraine thread is full but this belongs here anyway
NATO to boost troops on high alert to over 300,000 -Stoltenbergv
>BRUSSELS, June 27 (Reuters) - NATO will boost the number of troops on high alert by more than sevenfold to over 300,000, its secretary-general said on Monday, as allies prepared to adopt a new strategy describing Moscow as a direct threat four months into the Ukraine war […]
>Stoltenberg said NATO in future would have "well over 300,000" troops on high alert, compared to 40,000 troops that currently make up the alliance's existing quick reaction force, the NATO Response Force (NRF).
>The new force model is meant to replace the NRF and "provide a larger pool of high readiness forces across domains, land, sea, air and cyber, which will be pre-assigned to specific plans for the defence of allies," a NATO official said.
>Stoltenberg said NATO combat units on the alliance's eastern flank nearest Russia, especially the Baltic states, are to be boosted to brigade level, with thousands of pre-assigned troops on standby in countries further west like Germany as rapid reinforcements.

be prepared for a /wwiii/ thread later this year


Agree with the general sentiment but it's not much of a WW3 if it's just NATO gang banging Russia tbh.




>NATO will boost the number of troops on high alert by more than sevenfold to over 300,000,
uygha hey gonna need that for the civil unrest to come if the western counries carry on further in to this crisis


Some nice words here but I fail to see why Iran couldn't be seen as another Russia, only less powerful. They might have a more ideological resistance to the West, but it comes from religious fundamentalism, it is not more 'pure,' for lack of a better word. Every existing country would do bad things if they were hegemonic, supporting Chinese unipolarity is not what the lefty multipolarists are after (even though I would bet that that would still develop certain economies that wouldn't have been developed otherwise)


Japan -maybe
Germany - zero.


Thoughts on this or his other books?


Zeihan is one of the worst geopolitical commentators of a really rotten bunch. He invites you into a world of pure imagination, where the US-led hegemonic empire is invincible and all-powerful, and everything it does will result in it winning more, and so everything else, every negative consequence, and all the bad results of negative-sum hostility can be ignored because the US wins by default.

This is actually a popular brainwave in DC and many people mired in the toxic DC cumswap believe this.

The essentially just says that, yes, the US is intentionally destroying the world economy, it's sidelined climate change, and undermining and discrediting all the international institutions it helped create. Yes it's probably going to be a disaster, but even if that does happen and it's a catastrophe, the US will end up on top of the shitpile, so don't worry. Everything that's happening is good because of this. It's fine that everyone in DC who is competent on China is shut out of the conversation, because you don't NEED to know about China, cause it's going to go away. Due to the current thing. Demographics. Or container ships. Who cares?

He's a dangerous retard because he pushes the DC consensus further into hubristic and willful self-delusion, but he's also just keying off the zeitgeist and fulfilling the need to ease the anxious talking classes, who are both anxious about losing their global status, but also feel uneasy about the frequency they run into dangerous retards expressing dangerous and retarded ideas, and how rarely they are challenged.

Could Turkiye have actually asked for more? By which I mean, do Turks even have anything else to ask for? I think they got everything.


Turkey went full imperilialism and genocide of kurds but im sure /leftypol/ is fine with this.


Lets just say ISIS is comparable with "communnists" here.


I don't think leftypol was particularly fine with it? Using the kurds as leverage to move the NATO border towards Russia would have been dismissed as hysterical Tankie delusion that'd you only see on a place like this.


So those PKK prisioners are gonna be sent to Turkey now?


No that guy is just malding about Russia, in the Ukraine thread too. Kurds were used by the US as leverage against Turkey and Syria simultaneously after Russia stepped in and deposing Assad failed. Now they are an acceptable loss for the US, who will certainly pull out in the next couple years.


Thanks for the effort post response. It is irrelevant to me if he caters to anxious bourgs, petty-bourgs, or state ops. My concern is the validity of his analysis, regardless of his implicit anti-communist underpinnings. If it's accurate that America is on top of a shit pile in the years ahead, or it's possible based on current trajectories, then planning and preparing countermeasures will have to be necessary. Could you elaborate more?

Massacre in Morocco: The ugly face of European imperialism
>The cold-blooded killing of at least 37 migrants underscores that as the US-NATO war with Russia escalates into a global conflagration, and workers across the continent move into struggle against the unbearable cost of living, the major European powers are resurrecting forms of state-organised violence and political reaction not seen since the 1930s.

The Kingdoms of Morocco and Spain have a quid pro quo which may cause more tragedies in the future. Spain recently reversed its long held stand on the Western Sahara, its former colony, in accepting Morocco annexation of the territory, as its own, after Spain vacated it around 1975. In exchange, Morocco acts as a gatekeeper against African immigrants fleeing poverty and violence to Europe, via Spain, among other terms of the deal. This transactional deal not only sacrificed the lives of thousands of immigrants but it is a part of a larger problem and worrisome trends.

To start, the Western Sahara is a piece of coastal land rich in fisheries and phosphate located South of Morocco. After 1975, when Spain left the territory, the United Nations agreed there should be a self-determination vote of the local population of few hundred thousand inhabitants. Contrary to international law, soon after Spain vacated the territory, Morocco sent waves and waves of its own settlers to occupy the new republic to subvert any subsequent UN supervised voting by the locals. Very few objected to the fait accompli and no sanctions were applied. Morocco has insisted it is its recovered province and if any voting or census is undertaken it must include its own settlers as inhabitants of Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (as the new territory is called now).

Several Western European governments have reversed course on the question of self-determination of the Sahrawi people in exchange for favors from Morocco. Even the US, via Trump, traded recognition of Western Sahara as Moroccan, in favor of Morocco trading it for establishment of diplomatic relations with Israel.

Thus, it is not only Spain that is immersed into this controversy. Turkey holds untold numbers of Syrian refugees (and ISIS terrorists) from flooding Europe in exchange for billions. Mexico houses 1000s of Latin Americans waiting to cross the border into the US.

Many countries in the West have become transactional or racist in their immigration and refugee policies. Contrast the warm reception of Ukrainian refugees to the cruel Latin Americans or African refugees' to see the discriminatory immigration policies. In most, if not all, cases, Western countries no longer vouch for human rights, independence or sovereignty and such to expand their own interests. Of course, this is not just about nationality, race or color of the persons. That masks a much more significantly objective reality.

Beneath it all is a global class struggle where imperialist powers and their respective ruling classes not only oppress their own working class at home but also extend that exploitation and oppression to workers in distant lands. As economic conditions worsen around the world, especially in Africa and Latin America, expect more waves of poor immigrants risking their lives to escape deprivation and oppression at home. Dire economic conditions will also fuel the rise of far-right fascists in the West opposing immigrants and politicians will adopt more inhuman immigration and refugee policies.

History has shown capitalism, in its pursuit of profits, will spare no one anywhere. The entire international working class is its target. Thus it is imperative and urgent that workers worldwide unite in their struggles against their common enemy, the international bourgeoisie and its lackeys - local and worldwide. The goal must be to build a new socialist society based on social needs, instead of profits, according to Marxist principles.


No they aren’t good arguments. But the context of the utterly fuckless response from the “dovish” parts of parts of the world the US considers not-shithole countries is very important. The consensus in DC has coalesced around Zeihan’s delusional view: the US can do anything it wants and will always win. When peacnik types tried to warn away from taking massive, hostile steps towards China because of supposed resistance from our allies due to economic damage, and then the US took those steps, our allies took that economic damage, and what they aid was “please more thank you sir,” it ended up discrediting them and turning everyone in DC into violent, brutalizing realists who increasingly hold other countries in contempt. Not unlike the delusion that gripped America during the neocon ascendency, but even worse.


This only made an open secret offical. I wouldn't be surprised if Russia was already calculating Finland and Sweden to be de facto NATO countries in their military plans before all this Ukraine shit.

The western powers have delivered again in our area and the new born is the terrorist who bears all the features of his bearers and behaves like them . These terrorists are not our children they are the children of the father who begot them ie the western civilization . It is in their prisons and in their wombs that he was conceived and given birth
60 thousand terrorists including families are in al Hawl camp in al Hasaka . Almost half of them are Iraqis and half of them are children being raised in this environment . Al Hawl Camp is USA is what USA and the world powers want the world to look like . Hundreds of murders happening there and children growing to become killers and terrorists . No country wants to retrieve its citizens among terrorists who are foreigners confined to the camp . The only country that is interested in retrieving its citizens is Iraq and this because of the threat they represent in operating across borders . The camp is monitored by the SDF forces which are US affiliated and they guard the camp with all its content . The US is the reference and decides who will be recycled or set free or repatriated and so on. The camp is a timed bomb ready to explode, and one wonders why after more then 10 years of fighting terror Syria has not come to terms with terrorism but terrorism is still there and the reason is that we have normalized with terror like we have normalized with israel . And the war in Syria is a long story of normalization with terror if we want to summarize it in one sentence . And this in preparation for the normalization with israel that Syria would have to undergo and the ground is being prepared for this by virtue of which terrorists were integrated in the Syrian Army and pacified and relocated and the sponsors of terror empowered like Turkey . Those who really fought terror are the Resistance and its allies. Otherwise these were maneuvers by Russia and the US Coalition that most of the times worked on sparing terrorists and negotiating with them and keeping them a force on the ground . Until now Idlib is occupied by terrorist groups and will not be liberated . One cannot at the same time coexist with terror and fight it and Syria finds itself in this position.

The previous PM of Somalia sent 5000 Somali troops to be trained in Eritrea and disinfo shills from TPLF and Somalia were spreading bullshit about how these guys were being kidnapped by Eritrea and they all died in Tigray. Now they the new Somali PM just went to Eritrea because they just finished their training. They are now the ghost army.

You don't give for granted they are western/glow ops. Although is complex, some ngos openly state they are western funded to avoid get in conflict with other ngos that are also western funded, or else they get a firing squad problem.

In the end you try, as leader of a socialist country, not to aboloish the gains of rights, but to reinforce them.

For example, you can push a law that forces any ngo to do a public statement on their banking accounts and the precedence of their money. You force the national banks to publish this information.

So I've been meaning to post this lately, hopefully to create an interesting discussion, at first I wanted to make a separate thread for this but I guess it'll do for this thread, basically, about ISIS and al Qaeda.

So doesn't it seem strange to anyone else that after bin Laden's assasination, his successor, Ayman al Zawahiri, has managed to remain unscathed this long? Especially the massive global effort during the mid 2010s to combat Islamic terrorism? This guy has led al Qaeda since 2011, and nothing has happened to him. How is this possible? Considering the very advanced surveillance and espionage technology the US has, I think no matter how good his hiding spot is they would've gotten him by now. Even moreso considering the efforts the US has taken to completely decimate the ISIS terrorist structure, no matter how decentralized it may be, they still got btfo'd. When we look at other countries which had similar cleansings, it's the same story. Russia for example, got rid of its terrorist problem in a span of 17 years, since the end of the Second Chechen War until the insurgency was defeated for good in 2017. All those high ranking leaders of the Caucasus Emirate were assasinated, not a single one of them survived. How come the US, with its more developed surveillance networks, hasn't been able to get one guy in over 11 years?

The second topic, on ISIS, is how rapidly these mfs spread. Doesn't this seem to anyone else here like the biggest psyop of the 2010s? To think that this shitty little group split from an Iraq-based al Qaeda network, and from ~2011 to 2015 nearly conquered Iraq, large swathes of Syria, and other territories in Yemen, North Africa, etc. It seems extremely unorganic. I'm aware that all terrorist orgs are funded/supported by an outside force, either a state or a non-state actor, but still, their growth and expansion was so rapid and in such a short period of time, I'm still amazed how they did it. And even then, was the outside support the only decisive factor? I guess the fact that they started in a country ruined by an invasion and ensuing insurgency (that also turned into a civil war between sunnis and shias) also helped a little, they were facing a barely functioning government and a newly created army trained by a foreign power (not a good combo) so that surely must've influenced too. But it would also be interesting to see how much foreign support ISIS received, like from other countries, non-state actors, or even individual donors and whatnot.


"ISIS" started out in '99 as a sectarian anti-Shia org and had an entire decade to build up their network, kind of like how the Khmer Rouge was an underground insurgency for years in the Cambodian countryside before suddenly leaping into complete control

I thought that guy who the hero dog killed was supposed to be the next Bin Laden or something.

I don't know the answer to your question, but does anyone else find it weird Euros were averaging record breaking terrorist attack every few months and then it just magically stopped?


Lol, idk why Trump said that, al Baghdadi was the leader of ISIS and he blew himself up when the soldiers sent to kill him were getting close.
Ok that explains it a bit more, but I'm doubting a decade of preparation was enough to explain their initial success. I wonder if they were already receiving covert support back then or only in the 2010s.


The fuck was that clip? Was any of that real? That's some whacky shit


damn that CIA budget is taking them really high in terms of production value. Actually surveying the attack with a drone and showing his last moments with his children is great for the Anglo-backed Wahhabist propaganda machine. The saudis and the texas oilmen smile upon this video.


100% real
Also, to answer your question, I think the main reason they stopped was because ISIS actually got btfo'd very hard. The global effort taken by many countries (including several geopolitical opponents) took their toll on ISIS. From the main heavy lifting on the ground against the actual ISIS military, by forces like Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, etc. to all the high profile assasinations of leaders and counter-terrorist operations against ISIS cells in Europe, they were beaten back to probably below square one. Now they barely hold some territory in North and West Africa, and I think a little in Somalia too (also a little in Afghanistan but they were getting btfo'd by the Taliban last time I checked, maybe they lost it all now). I guess that's one of the few good outcomes that came from ISIS, the entire world uniting against them.





>I'm doubting a decade of preparation was enough to explain their initial success
there’s also the fact that they only conquered a literal collapse in state authority in northern Syria and Iraq


Damn, when the spooks hit hard, they hit. Mf telling his son he was gonna die for some bullshit.

Bin Laden was a US asset. Wahhabist fundamentalist reactoinaries were always a tool to detabilize China/Russia neighbors and prevent Belt & Road from taking off. America took ETIM off the terror list just to give them money/guns to fuck up Xinjiang. Operation Cyclone way back in 1979 gave money and weapons to mujahideen in Afghanistan to overthrow the socialist revolution in Kabul and bait the soviets into a costly intervention. Islamic Fundamentalists were always US allies and the ideology emanates from the Saudi crown, whose wahhabist ideology is so extreme, it was considered backwards by the Ottoman empire in the 1700s. The US ultimately let these people do 9/11 on purpose to have something to spend their cold war money on after the cold war was over. Look into the relationship between the Bushes and the Bin Ladens.

Don't have links at hand but roadblocks are being erected on both sides of the Kosovo Serbia border, and a Serbian soldier died. An MP of the ruling party in Serbia said "It seems Serbia will be forced to start the denazification of the Balkans."

I'm not sure if this will be a full scale war, but that's the trajectory.


I cant but wish Serbia best. They have split it up too much, punished warcrimes so one-sidedly.


I doubt Vucic is crazy enough to start a war since it would be an easy victory for US/NATO. Serbia is landlocked and completely surrounded by NATO countries so it's not like they can call in Russia to help them like they with Syria.

yeah, seems like everything is heating up, worldwide
i wonder if there's a russo-chinese plan to pin the burger empire in ukraine, the balkans, middle east via Iran (the treaty with russia explicitly mentioned trilateral military exercises of Iran, Russia, China), maybe in south america as well, considering renewed interest of Russia and China in the region and finally - Taiwan - there's no way burgers could handle all of this




some guys thoughts on this:
"Tldr on Kosovo (I'm from the Balkans and am pretty up to date on the news) I'll try to be as unbiased as possible and I will try to present the facts as I understand them. I ask you to read this to the end before making any jugements.The Kosovo government is trying to implement special cross border documents and will ban entry to Kosovo with Serbian ID cards. Also Serbian license plates will not be valid in Kosovo and temporary plates will be required (this is already the case for Kosovo plates in Serbia). The Serbian majority in northern Kosovo doesn't even recognize the Kosovar government, and many rely on the Serbian government for Pensions and other things. The decision to constrain the ability of the Serbian government to influence Kosovo by limiting the mobility of the ethnic Serbian populace (many of whom cross the border daily) sparked road brocades by the people affected by this. The Kosovo government in response sent the Special police force ( de facto Kosovo military) to block etery across the border the Kosovar government denise this,( but they have done similar things before so keep this in mind), local pro-Serbian reporter say that the border crossings of Brnjak and Jarinje are blocked, there is no way to verify or disprove this claim at this time. The Serbian government has absolutely not sent the military, this is total bullshit. KFOR is actively monitoring the situation and will intervene if anything happens. Side note this kind of bullshit happens all the time usually to drum up support before elections or to distract the populace from other issues. Serbia won't start a war because they are completely surrounded by NATO, and Kosovo won't start it because they don't have a military."


serbia has sent military on the border, there are videos of them

Kosovo is not a country.


>KFOR are still there
lmfao didn't know this


and i don't mean the "not a country" in a serbian nationalist way, but in a material reality way: without EU, UN etc. presence and bureaucrats and stuff they could not be able to exist as a country.

Eritrea stopped The TPLF and saved Ethiopia. TPLF couldn't take Eritrea with all of Ethiopia under their command. They fantasize about taking Eritrea even now, but some part of them has to know they're going to get their shit stomped by Eritrea if it comes to that.

What Eritrea has to do with anything? America just declared Afwerki "le evil," for reasons, so that's it really. I dunno what country or leader has been put on the evil list that can come back from it. How do you undo decades of propaganda?

>yeah we told you this guy was Satan incarnate and eats babies for breakfast, but actually, we think he's alright now.

Actually truthfully, The Democrats are much worse about Ethiopia and Eritrea for reasons. Things were moving in a positive direction under Trump, and then Biden came in, and things went to shit immediately again. Some Democrat insiders like Susan Rice are heavily cliqued up with The TPLF. I hear there's also some other TPLF connected people in the current administration.

>Someone redpill me on the Tigray conflict, who is based and who is cringe?
TPLF is cringe. Abiy is kinda cringe. I'm going to say based for Eritrea/Isaeas, although cringe sometimes.

Abiy is cringe because he wants to take the diplomatic approach to everything too much. He seems to be bending over backwards to extend the olive branch to TPLF to little effect, they seem to want to hold out for as much as they can, what their end game is, who knows.

I dunno, I follow lots of people on twitter and read a lot of commentary but it's hard to decipher exactly what's going on and where it's going. I guess my prediction is TPLF will capitulate eventually because they are the ones blockaded. They have no long game to play. I think they're praying for divine(US) intervention and I don't think that will even come for them. I think Abiy will stay in power. A lot of people seem to be mad at Abiy, but I think maybe his support is under counted because critics are the most vocal. I don't know enough, and don't know where I could find enough info about his economic plan to give my opinion on that. He's a pretty free market guy to my knowledge although the thing he likes to post about most is the green environmental restoration program they're working on. Again I don't know enough to tell you what's hype and what's real regarding that. Some people make fun of him calling him a gardener or Dr. green thumb or something because of how much he posts about that vs. everything else. He doesn't talk about the war almost at all really. Another interesting thing about him, he demanded a permanent security council seat for Africa as a whole, don't know if that's going to amount to anything, but he has a broader vision I think about being pan-Africanism and all that.


File: 1661062695414.png (541.85 KB, 800x807, ClipboardImage.png)

Some other things. People are really mad at him because of all the ethnic violence that's happening around the country. Oromo terrorist groups killing Amharas. TPLF killing Afars and Amharas. I don't know enough about all of that to say where it's going to go. Hopefully just die down. I don't really understand the situation with the ENDF or the security situation. I guess I just hope all the ethnic tension dies down. I here there is even some kind of ethnic drama happening in Addis, I saw someone call it the Oromoization.

Also another note: I don't really see how a peace negotiation can work out with The TPLF. Besides autonomy or whatever else their demands are, I'm sure their base demand will be immunity for all of them, and I don't know everyone will be down with that. But who knows, he already released TPLF prisoners. Although it seems like TPLF is the only group interested in keeping this whole situation going. How they can think prolonging this will turn the odds in their favor, I don't know. The Ukraine of Africa.

What's funny about turkey refusing to allow finland and sweden into nato without giving up the pkk and ypg "terrorists" those countries house is how rojava has some radlibs' support and the turkish attacks on them are making them somewhat distraught. What is humorous about this is that many of the "anarcho-natoist" types should, if cognitive dissonance didnt exist, choose to either support nato or support the anarchist pro-lgbt middle eastern country that isnt israel.

Iran is accepted into the SCO - a memorandum on its obligations as a member of the organization was signed at the summit in Samarkand, the Uzbek Foreign Ministry told RIA Novosti. Having fulfilled these obligations, Iran will be able to participate as a full member at the next summit in India in 2023.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization includes Russia, China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Pakistan. Iran will be ninth.

Kazakhstan FM denied rumors about the suspension of membership in the CSTO:
"The information that appeared in some social networks about the allegedly planned withdrawal of Kazakhstan from the CSTO is an absolute fake and does not correspond to reality"

Xi Jinping believes that China and Russia should strengthen coordination in the SCO, BRICS and other multilateral mechanisms.
Moscow and Beijing must work together to defend the interests of developing countries, the Chinese leader said.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi confirmed his participation in the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization(SCO) in Samarkand. Global Times writes ,that the presence of Modi at the SCO summit against the background of non-alignment with the American IPEF bloc indicates that India adheres to an independent policy, and analysts hope that the country will cooperate more actively with other SCO members, including China and Russia, in the joint promotion of a multipolar world. Against the background of all this, there is another news: Indian Deputy Foreign Minister Vinay Quatro notes that India is not a G7 country that is considering the possibility of introducing a ceiling on prices for Russian oil.

Xi Jinping:
>Dear President Putin! My dear and old friend! I am very glad to see you again! In the conditions of a pandemic, we constantly maintain contacts, including by phone.
>In the face of the colossal changes of our time unprecedented in the entire history on a global scale, we are ready with our Russian colleagues to set an example of a responsible world power and play a leading role to put the world on a sustainable development trajectory.

Ottawa sends Beijing envoy to Taiwan amid rising tensions with China
>The federal government is sending its acting envoy in Beijing to take on the unofficial role of Ottawa’s ambassador to Taiwan amid China’s escalating military threats against the self-governed island, three sources say.
>Jim Nickel, chargé d’affaires in Beijing, will become executive director of the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei, Canada’s unofficial embassy in Taiwan, according to two Canadian officials and a source in the Taiwanese government. He replaces diplomat Jordan Reeves.
>“It’s a good move because Jim will be one of the more senior guys we’ve sent to Taipei, and because of his experience in Beijing, I think he will be an important person to provide advice back to Ottawa,” said Guy Saint-Jacques, a former Canadian ambassador to China.
>Mr. Saint-Jacques said Mr. Nickel is an experienced diplomat who will give Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly on-the-ground intelligence on Chinese aggression against Taiwan and strategic input into the Indo-Pacific strategy that is being drafted by her department.
>He added that Mr. Nickel will be able to provide analysis on Chinese disinformation campaigns in Taiwan and their efforts to influence the election in two years’ time as well as military tactics and manoeuvres in the Taiwan Strait and the Indo-Pacific region.
>The two Canadian officials say Ms. Joly has selected a female career diplomat to replace Dominic Barton, who resigned in December to become chairman of mining giant Rio Tinto, but Beijing has not yet approved the appointment. Both sources say there has been no pushback from China about the pending appointment of Mr. Nickel. The Globe and Mail is not identifying the Canadian officials or the Taiwanese source because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.
>David Mulroney, who also served as ambassador to China, lauded Mr. Nickel as “exceptionally competent” and noted that Taipei is an important post.
>“It is one of our larger and more important posts in terms of staffing, the significance of our interests, and the complexity of the issues,” Mr. Mulroney said.
>Beijing has repeatedly conducted military drills simulating the invasion of Taiwan, and in recent years has militarized the South China Sea and stepped up intimidating warplane sorties against Taiwan. Beijing has never ruled out the use of force to bring Taipei under its control.
>Canada does not recognize Taiwan as a sovereign state and does not maintain official government-to-government relations with Taipei.
>Mr. Nickel, who is in Ottawa for briefings at Global Affairs, has been acting ambassador to China after Mr. Barton’s resignation. Mr. Barton was praised for helping secure the release of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor from Chinese custody, but criticized for strongly pushing closer trade ties with Beijing and ignoring China’s human-rights abuses.
>The Canadian officials say China lodged a formal complaint to Global Affairs about a planned visit by a Canadian parliamentary delegation to Taipei in early October.
>China does not approve of foreign politicians visiting Taiwan. Beijing’s authoritarian rulers consider Taiwan a breakaway province even though the Chinese Communist Party, which seized power on the mainland more than 70 years ago, has never ruled the island.
>“China firmly opposes any form of official exchanges between the Taiwan region and countries having diplomatic relations with China,” the Chinese embassy in Ottawa said in a statement Wednesday. “We urge the Canadian side to abide by the one-China principle and respect China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
>The embassy warned that “China will take resolute and forceful measures against any country that attempts to interfere with or infringe upon China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
>Veteran Liberal MP Judy Sgro, who heads the Taiwan-Canada Parliamentary Friendship Group, acknowledged that the Chinese embassy had lodged a formal complaint but said Canadians MPs would not be bullied by China.
>She said the goal of the visit in the week of Oct. 8 is to enhance the relationship with Taipei and noted that members of the group usually visit the island democracy twice a year.
>“They [China] have complained before and I know they have complained this time but I don’t think we should be bullied by anybody,” she said in an interview Wednesday. “We are enhancing democracy and respect for democracy and building relationships. We are not going there to comment on what China does.”
>Now that the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be on the wane, Ms. Sgro said Canadian parliamentarians are keen to visit Taiwan and their trip would seek to expand commercial ties between both countries.
>The Communist Party has not ruled out using force to take control of Taiwan, which peacefully transitioned to democracy from martial law in the late 20th century.
>In August, China encircled Taiwan with threatening military exercises that included firing missiles near the island after Taipei played host to U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the highest ranking American official to visit in decades.
>Last month, China fired missiles over the island and sailed warships near Taiwan after Ms. Pelosi’s visit, which Beijing declared as a provocation.
>In the wake of the Pelosi visit, other Western legislators are scheduling visits to Taiwan, including a delegation from Germany.
>Canadian warships transit the Taiwan Strait about once a year. Last October, the Chinese military condemned Canada and the United States for each sending a warship through the disputed waters, saying they were threatening peace and stability in the region.


>>The embassy warned that “China will take resolute and forceful measures against any country that attempts to interfere with or infringe upon China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

The global South has lost $152 trillion through unequal exchange since 1960

>Dependency and world-systems theorists have long argued that “unequal exchange” is a key driver of global inequality. Since wages and natural resource prices are much lower in the global South than the North, poor countries must export many more units of embodied labour and resources than they import in order to achieve a monetary balance of trade. This creates a constant transfer of labour and ecology from the periphery to the core, developing the latter but impoverishing the former.

>In a recent paper in New Political Economy that I co-authored with Jason Hickel from the University of London, and Huzaifa Zoomkawala, a data analyst based in Karachi, we quantify the value that has been appropriated from the South through unequal exchange since 1960. To do this, we use a method developed by the economist Gernot Köhler. Köhler proposes that we can use purchasing power parity (PPP) exchange rates constructed by the World Bank to value the South’s exports at the North’s price level. By subtracting the actual market price that the South received for its exports from this figure, we can measure the commodities appropriated by the imperialist states, in terms of the Northern price of those commodities.

>Using Köhler’s method, we find that in 2017 the ‘emerging and developing economies,’ as defined by the IMF, lost $2.2 trillion worth of goods to the ‘advanced economies.’ This represents an enormous loss for the South. These resources could have ended extreme poverty 15 times over, but instead they were transferred gratis to the core. This windfall is of enormous benefit to the centres of empire. For instance, in 2017 the U.S. gained $2,634 per person through unequal exchange, while the average Australian citizen received $3,116 from the South. Since 1990, the North’s annual gains from unequal exchange have sat at 5.2% of GDP, considerably higher than the North’s annual growth rate. In other words, if not for imperialist plunder, aggregate income in the North would have been declining for decades. The extraordinary levels of material consumption currently enjoyed in the North are predicated upon exploitation and poverty in the periphery.

>Figure 1 shows total value transfer since 1960. All up, the South has lost $62 trillion (constant 2011 dollars), equivalent to 97% of its 2017 GDP. If this surplus had been available to the South, it could have been reinvested in domestic economic development. If we assume this surplus would have grown at the same rate as Southern GDP, it would now be equivalent to $152 trillion.

>Our findings indicate this exploitative relationship has worsened over time. Figure 2 presents a time series showing the annual drain of surplus from the periphery over the post-colonial period. During the 1960s, the South lost about $38 billion a year, just over 1% of total Southern output. However, by 2005 drain from the periphery amounted to almost $3 trillion, or 9% of output.

>This increase in the scale of value transfer was driven by a concerted imperialist assault on the third world. On the one hand, Northern states have intervened to suppress Southern wages and prices. Through the 1960s and 1970s, Western powers violently toppled independent governments, installing military juntas that crushed organized labour, as in the Congo (1960), Indonesia (1965), and Chile (1973). Similarly, during the 1980s and 1990s, the IMF and World Bank (both controlled by the G7) forced global South countries to de-regulate labour markets and cut-back public sector employment. At the same time, Northern states have sought to preserve the monopoly power of their own firms, and insulate their high prices from competition. The IMF, World Bank, and WTO have pressured the South to eliminate tariffs, decimating its indigenous-controlled industrial sector. This has given Northern monopoly capital overwhelming control over the international market and the terms of trade. These imperialist policies account for the dramatic rise in exploitation since 1960.

>Since 2005, the scale of value transfer has declined somewhat. But this has been driven almost entirely by a change in the position of China—one of the few countries that was not forcibly structurally adjusted, and which continues to protect domestic industry. For the rest of the South, neo-colonial plunder continues at historically unprecedented levels.

>A common critique of unequal exchange theory is that global price differences reflect differences in productivity; Southern workers are less efficient than Northern workers, so their low wages do not provide a flow of value to the North. However, there is little evidence that the South is less productive than the North when it comes to production for international trade. The South’s export sector is equipped with advanced, ultra-modern technology provided by foreign capital. Similarly, Southern workers are subject to brutal Taylorist discipline that is illegal in the North. Indeed, one study of export processing zones in Mexico finds that Mexican metal workers, electronics workers, and seamstresses produce 10%-40% more output in an hour than their U.S. counterparts. Despite this productivity advantage, we find that Mexico lost $1,619 per capita through the undervaluation of its exports in 2017. Low wages and prices in Mexico’s export sector do not reflect low productivity; they reflect imperialist power imbalances in the capitalist world-system.

>These findings indicate that rich countries continue to rely on the exploitation of lands and bodies from the global South in order to maintain their high levels of growth and consumption. If we want to end poverty and ensure all people have access to the resources they need to live well, we must change the structure of the global economy. An important first step could be a global universal basic income of $5 a day. This would eliminate extreme poverty immediately, and reduce the South’s dependence on Northern-dominated export markets. Our research demonstrates such a cash transfer is owed, not as charity, but as compensation for the trillions appropriated from the South since 1960.

China Is Quietly Trying to Dethrone the Dollar
>At their recent summit in Uzbekistan, members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO)—a prominent regional organization led by China and Russia—agreed on a road map to expanding trade in local currencies. A road map for using local currencies in trade and developing alternative payment and settlement systems has been part of the SCO’s economic plan for years.

>This agenda is in line with individual policies on the part of the group’s most prominent members, including Russia’s attempt to cushion the blow of Western sanctions, China’s deteriorating relations with the United States, India’s use of nondollar currencies in its trade with Russia, and Iran’s recent proposal for a single SCO currency. Chinese President Xi Jinping proposed to address development deficits through regional integration, especially by expanding the shares of local currency settlements, strengthening the development of local-currency cross-border payment and settlement systems, and promoting the establishment of an SCO Development Bank.

>Xi did not openly discuss the geopolitical risk of U.S. dollar dependence when addressing the recent SCO summit. However, his proposal reflected Chinese leaders’ deep concerns about the vulnerability of the Chinese economy to U.S. dollar hegemony and their desire to develop alternative systems to hedge against the risk of the dollar’s dominance.

>Beijing is not, for now, attempting to make the yuan an internationalized currency. It does not seek to dethrone the U.S. dollar and replace the dollar’s dominance in the global system with the yuan. Instead, it is taking steps to make the yuan a regionally powerful currency through local institutions in China and regional intergovernmental organizations such as the SCO. Beijing wants to increase the use of the yuan in China’s cross-border trade settlements and investment, reduce its dependence on the dollar, minimize exchange risk and dollar liquidity shortage, and maintain access to global markets during geopolitical crises.

List of individuals in C-suite at Chinese integrated circuit firms who will have to immediately quit or renounce US citizenship, or face jail time. The US’s latest sanctions, the most severe ever issued , extends even to private individuals. No US citizen or permanent resident (passport or green card holder) is permitted to work for any firm anywhere in the world that trades with Chinese IC. And that’s just the beginning. Expect USG to further curtail the individual freedom of Americans and to push for these policies to replicated in Europe.


I wonder if this is an attempt to plug holes in protectionist policy and recreate america's tech superiority and prevent china from doing things like create microchip tech parity with taiwan or something. Might be too little, too late. Didnt china recently unveil a better microchip than the taiwanese ones?


And before one jumps to the conclusion that this *really* hurts the US, the firms these restrictions primarily hurt are mostly in Asian and partially in Europe, and last in the US. These sanctions are cost free if not beneficial to the US and the destructive externalities are absorbed by allies.


It’s to exploit chokepoints that the US has to ruin foreign semiconductor companies, damage Chinese economy in any way possible, move advanced/value added technology production from SK/Japan/TW to the US and in general continue to bifurcate the world into a “Cold War” that will define us for generations. In the future, Americans probably won’t even be able to travel to China because their own government bans them from doing so.


Is this another example of the us cannibalizing ally economies to remain competitive?


The US has announced this week a formal end to the “free trade” era, in no uncertain terms. In fact, they very explicitly blew up the paradigm now that fair trade within the market system has no longer solely benefits the United States. There will be no global cooperation on any issue (lel, who even cares about climate change anymore?), and the imperial core now seeks to build a wall around itself and push those outside into the sea. The vulgar, civilizational category of “The West” has emerged as the new imperial alliance and the objective of the empire is to strengthen and empower North America, Western and Northern Europe, and honorary white country Japan (and perhaps South Korea) at the expense of the rest of the world.

Sweden had previously inspected the crime scene south-east of the Baltic Sea island and also secured evidence on the seabed.

So i guess this settles it then. Swedish security classification too high, case closed. I just wonder what evidence Swedish investigators luckily secured on the crime scene before German investigators arrived.


Digital standards which are frequently patented or invasive.


So they are worried that China will start badgering the rest of the world about patents ?
I doubt the Chinese ever cared about that. Intellectual monopolies exist in China in a very limited form and that probably was just as a curtesy gesture for western companies setting up factories in China.

Since the US has implemented their high-tech embargo, China is now exposed to pressures to develop their own high-tech as fast as possible. Patents would significantly slow down that technology development. If i had to make a guess the Chinese patent system will likely turn into some kind of board of fame for technical people. I could imagine that they give out rewards to people who file patents with particularly useful technology. But the hole exclusion deal, where patents ban others from using specific tech for 20 years, they'll ditch that because it will not be compatible with developing the productive forces. Patents basically function as a technology delay mechanism.


Rival Palestinian factions signed an agreement in Algiers on Thursday aimed at resolving 15 years of fbi.gov by holding elections within a year after months of talks mediated by Algeria.

Participants in the talks included Azzam al-Ahmed, head of the Fatah delegation, Ismael Haniyeh, head of the Islamist Hamas movement, and leaders or representatives of fourteen other Palestinian factions.

Fatah is a social democratic party whereas hamas is the ruling islamist party in palestine.


The Swedes likely don't want to antagonize the US and jeopardize their ability to join NATO.


The Swedes could take a steaming dump onto Biden's or Charles III's desk and would get a bold smile and "Thank you very much!" in return. Sweden is Washington's favourite vassall in Scandinavia. It took some time to get them fully cucked into the Anglosphere and officially join NATO as well, but now they're apparently delivering.

Reading articles saying Eurocolds are dissatisfied with US economic warfare destroying their economies is comical. They enables this belligerence from the US and are in the receiving end of the most bold, violent and pissed off DC blob in their lifetimes. If they had just not capitulated on a *single* thing, they could have tapped the breaks and prevented this from getting out of control. But there’s no stopping this monster now. War with China is coming soon. Very soon.

Footage of pro-Russian protest in Haiti in opposition to any possible US-led intervention. Protesters are asking for a Russian or Chinese veto against any UN security council resolution.


>According to the Miami Herald, the United States has drafted a United Nations Security Council resolution that will encourage the “immediate deployment of a multinational rapid action force” to Haiti to address the nation’s worst security and health crisis in decades, according to a copy of the resolution obtained by McClatchy and the Miami Herald.
>The draft resolution, confirmed by multiple U.S. and U.N. officials, comes in response to a call by U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres last week for the establishment of a rapid reaction force to assist the Haitian National Police. Over the past four weeks, powerful armed gangs have all but sent the country into anarchy, blockading the country’s largest fuel terminals and cutting off its critical roadways.
>It is the first public indication so far that the Biden administration is willing to participate in a military force in Haiti — although the resolution does not specify what role various nations would play.
>A U.S. source familiar with the drafting of the resolution said the multilateral force would not be under the supervision of the U.N. or assembled under Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter, which endorses the use of force for the maintenance of peace.
>Last week, Guterres proposed that Haiti and other nations or transnational organizations deploy a rapid response-force, to be followed in the medium-term by a U.N.-led force. It remains unclear who would lead the rapid-action force, but the United States, Canada and France — three countries with a long history of involvement in Haiti — have all expressed skepticism in recent days.


I expect nothing to happen (and the international coalition go) cause no one gives a cent for Haiti.
By intervention I have seen an analyst who doesn't frame it as a peace corps (blue hats) mission, but a Afghan soviet stiled one, just cappie this time.


Does anyone know what's going on between the US and Saudi Arabia? What are the Saudi's motivation for suddenly resisting the Jack Brandon Regime? Do they just want their Republican friends back?


Saudi Arabian want autonomy over their oil buisinesses, and the petrodollar has proven to be more and more constricting as of late

spot the lie


Thank you for that mp4 shay


anyone have any reading recs or people to following regarding this situation in Haiti?


Also looks like the Dominican Republic is reinforcing their equipment
>If the estimates of the Dominican president are taken as true, at least 70% of the Haitian territory would be taken over by criminal gangs, which implies that any international intervention will have to confront a powerful group that has not only seized spaces to infuse its law, but has enough weapons to defend himself.
>His statements are as forceful as the 164-kilometer wall that the Dominican Republic erects on the border with Haiti. In fact, last weekend the president made a tour to verify the progress of the first stage of the fence, which includes 54 kilometers of physical fence, 20 watchtowers and 11 gates, to "control" the entry of Haitian migrants. .
But commerce hasn't been hurt yet, net profit for exporting to the failed republic


what makes taiwan beat china in every virtually every metric ever? taiwan beats all western countries too in theses metrics

So Abiy decided to finally stop being a cuck and it looks like TPLF is done for. They'll probably pull a Mengistu and retreat to America. I dunno, maybe it took this long to straighten out the ENDF(still it's EDF doing all the heavy lifting this time just like last time.) Hopefully he'll finish the job this time and not cuck.

The final cry of the dying American puppet.


Partially true. All the gold in China was also relocated there when the KMT escaped with it during their retreat. Like literally. All the gold.


> taiwan beats all western countries too in theses metrics

I’m not going to shit all over Taiwan Province, but this would be surprising to hear said if you actually lived there. People often overestimate the income of Taiwan people.


Small countries who manage to effectively specialize in niche industries often do quite well.


Eh Taiwan GDP is inflated by corporations who do the majority of business on the mainland being domiciled there + chips massively boosting GDP due to a mistaken assumption of macroeconomic accounting. If you went by GDP you would think it’s as wealthy as Japan.


Tiny Island that had the entire world's meaningful chip production. I wonder what.


its a more advanced economy

TPLF finally surrendered. It's OGRE.

Lel what the fuck? How Western media is reporting it, makes it sounds like it's a two way affair or something. Everything I'm seeing from Ethiopian sources says it's more of "TPLF agreed to drop their guns in exchange for not getting shot in the face."

"After an hours long stand off, the bank robber and the police have agreed to a cease-fire." Lol.

Apparently, there was an assassination attempt on Imran Khan


Francis being a bloodthirsty war criminal should surprise no one who actually read the last man. He articulates dreams of endless, bloody wars.


One wrong think people assume about The End of History is that this implies some kind of Leto’s Peace. Far from it. It is one where the liberal west constantly, literally constantly and eternally, bombs the rest of the world.
