Mike Pompeo Remarks at the German Marshall Fund, by Mike Pompeo

Thank you, Ian, for the kind introduction. Good morning to all of you; thank you for joining me here today. It's wonderful to be in this beautiful place, to get a chance to make a set of remarks about the very work that you do, the issues that confront the Marshall Fund and confront our region as well. Before I start today with my formal remarks, it would be – I would be enormously remiss if I did not pay a well-deserved tribute to America's 41st president, George Herbert Walker Bush. He was (...)

Who does Emmanuel Macron owe?, by Thierry Meyssan

President Macron is often presented as a Rothschild Boy. This is true, but secondary. Thierry Meyssan demonstrates that he owes his electoral campaign mostly to Henry Kravis, the boss of one of the world's largest financial companies, and to NATO – a considerable debt which weighs heavily today on the solution to the Yellow Vests crisis.

Édouard Philippe’s Speech in Response to the Riots , by Édouard Philippe

For more than three weeks, tens of thousands of French have expressed their anger, on roundabouts, tolls, near commercial areas or on the streets of a number of cities in France. This anger comes from far. It has been brewing for a long time; it has often remained silent, held back by modesty and pride. Today it is expressed forcefully by a movement. You'd have to deaf and blind not to hear or see this anger. Like the President of the Republic, like all parliamentarians, I understand this (...)

Riyadh funds Muqata’a, whilst Doha funds Gaza

Qatar has assumed responsibility — with the consent of Tel Aviv – of funding Gaza's officials. The amount that Qatar will hand out will be as much as 15 million dollar per month. This announcement was made a little time before an announcement was made about an Israel – Cyprus – Greece – Italy gas pipeline that will pass across the waters belonging to Palestine. Hamas, without any badge of legitimacy, is governing the Gaza Strip. It is voicing no opposition to this announcement. Qatar had blessed (...)

Who is violating Resolution 1701? Israel or Lebanon?

This photo was taken on 4 December in Kfar Kila (Lebanon). To the right you'll see several vehicles of the Blue Helmets of the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFL). To the left, between the Palestine flags and the flags of Resistance, you see a placard that pays homage to a young Hezbollah combatant now a martyr, and the flags of the Lebanese Resistance and the Palestine. In this area, the road signs to the Israeli border do not mention “Israel”, but rather “Palestine”. UNIFL is not (...)

Has Hezbollah built a tunnel to Israel? Israel has not provided enough evidence

For the third consecutive day, the Israeli defence forces are continuing operation “Northern Shield”. The project is under the command of the Head of the North Region, General Yoël Strick, and is being supervised by the Head of the General Staff, General Gadi Eizenkot. Tsahal has declared that it discovered two of Hezbollah's tunnels that penetrate into Israeli territory. The Permanent Representative of Israel to the UN, Ambassador Danny Danon, has denounced this as a violation of Resolution (...)

Five Eyes Against Huawei

Washington has asked Ottawa to arrest Meng Wanzhou and to extradite her. This young woman is the financial director and daughter of the founder of Huawei, the Chinese Telecom Giant. She was arrested on 6 December in Canada. The motive for the war undertaken by Washington against Huawei is deep-rooted and spurious are the justifications. The heart of the problem is that the Chinese firm uses a system of encryption that prevents the NSA from intercepting its communications. A number of (...)

Behind the US attack on Chinese Smartphones, by Manlio Dinucci

Donald Trump's attempt to re-balance the commercial flow between China and the USA does not correspond only to his aim of bringing de-localised jobs back to the United States. Indeed, the deployment of new transport and communications infrastructures is swiftly becoming a threat to the US position as leader of the world. The struggle centred around Huawei illustrates the way in which economic and military preoccupations inter-connect. Already, many States have observed that Washington is so far unable to decode this technology. Thus, as they did in Syria, they have entirely re-equipped their Intelligence services with Huawei material, and forbid their civil servants to use any (...)
