Here Is Why Europe Just Launched The “Nuclear Option” Against Russia

Europe’s leaders, we assume under pressure from Washington, appear to be making a big weather-related bet with their taxpayers’ lives this winter.  As they unleash funding sanctions on Russia’s big energy producers, Europe has pumped a record volume of natural gas into underground inventories in an effort to ‘outlast’ Russia and mitigate any Napoleonic “Winter […]

Russian General Demands Preemptive Nuclear Strike Doctrine Against NATO

While NATO is contemplating its existential purpose in a world where the Cold War has suddenly come back with a vengeance, and the military alliance has found itself woefully unprepared to deal with a Russia which no longer accepts the supremacy of the west (appropriately enough NATO is doing this on a golf course) Russia […]

Ukraine: Can the US save face from a fact-free zone of its own creation?

The Americans are finding out the hard way that a fact-free zone is not a comfortable place to inhabit.

On Dominoes, WMDs And Putin’s “Aggression”: Imperial Washington Is Intoxicated By Another Big Lie

Submitted by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog, Imperial Washington is truly running amuck in its insensible confrontation with Vladimir Putin. The pending round of new sanctions is a counter-productive joke.

On Washington’s Ukrainian Fiasco: “Who Is The Real Problem Here?”

Submitted by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog, In just 800 words Pat Buchanan exposes the sheer juvenile delinquency embodied in Washington’s current Ukrainian fiasco. He accomplishes this by reminding us of the sober restraint that governed the actions of American Presidents from FDR to Eisenhower, Reagan and Bush I with respect to Eastern Europe during far more perilous times. In a word, as much […]

GIH: Can income inequality actually be a major factor, if not the primary cause, of complete civilization collapse?  It can, according to a NASA funded study.  While many see the struggle of haves and have nots as ethical, or somehow sociological, actually it can be about survival for our species.  In a similar way how […]
