The European Parliament has just adopted a resolution which requires that the Union stop considering Russia as a strategic partner, but rather as an enemy of humanity. At the same time, the Commission sent a warning about the Chinese threat. Everything is unfolding as if the United States were manœuvering the Union into playing a part in their own supremacist strategy.

Mike Pompeo Address at CERAWeek , by Mike Pompeo

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you, Dan. Thank you all for joining me. I see you standing in the back. It's like church, there's empty pews in the front if you want to come up and grab a seat. I do think – is there anyone from the Petroleum Equipment Suppliers Association here? I'm pretty sure I'm the only former member to ever serve as Secretary of State, so you should put that right on the front of your web page. I think that's legal. Good evening, everyone, and thanks to you all for being here. I (...)

We also remember the countless civilians who have lost their lives (...)

The lies of Algerian Power, by Thierry Meyssan

The criteria that we habitually use in politics to explain power games do not apply to Algeria. Its current leaders are above all impostors who have fabricated, one by one, false biographies in order to obtain the consideration of their compatriots.
