We write in anticipation of the release of your Administration's Nuclear Posture Review (NPR). Through Fiscal Year 2030, the United States is on a path to spend a striking $630 billion on its nuclear weapons complex. While we commend steps you have already taken to address pressing nuclear dangers ? from salvaging the last remaining U.S.-Russia strategic nuclear arms reduction treaty to joining the leaders of the five nuclear-weapon states in emphasizing that ?a nuclear war cannot be won and (...)

The United States could reorganize the entire Middle East by reconciling Sunnis and Shiites, Saudi Arabia and Iran. They would then impose another cleavage: for or against political Islam. This new divide would allow them to revive jihadism in a much broader way.
Liz Truss - Sat Jan 22, 2022 16:10
Foreign Secretary Liz Truss gave a statement on the Kremlin plan to install pro-Russian leadership in Ukraine. We have information that indicates the Russian Government is looking to install a pro-Russian leader in Kyiv as it considers whether to invade and occupy Ukraine. The former Ukrainian MP Yevhen Murayev is being considered as a potential candidate. We have information that the Russian intelligence services maintain links with numerous former Ukrainian politicians including: Serhiy (...)

I'd like to begin by acknowledging the Traditional Owners of this land ? the Gadigal people ? and by paying my respects to Elders past and present. It's great to be back in Sydney and at the Lowy Institute with my friend Marise Payne. As the UK sets out on its future as global Britain, we now have full use of our trade, our defence, our diplomacy, and our development policies, to be able to work with friends and partners across the world. And I see Australia as a real inspiration in that, in (...)

On 18 November 2021, US Representatives, Peter A. DeFazio (R-Oregon), Nancy Mace (R-South Carolina) and Jamaal Bowman (D-New York), wrote to President Joe Biden asking him to specify on which constitutional basis he was bobming Syria and Iraq. At the end of the two-month regulatory deadline, the White House has still not responded to them. The military actions perpetrated by the United States against these two countries are, therefore, not only violating their sovereignty, but also the US (...)

Polling institute director, Douglas E. Schoen, published a column in the Wall Street Journal conjecturing about Hillary Clinton's return on the political scene [1]. The idea is that 79-year-old President Joe Biden, who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease, will not be able to run again and that his vice-president, Kamala Harris, has no chance of winning, and neither would Sen. Bernie Sanders (80, heart disease) or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (81). The way is therefore open for the wife of (...)

UK Defense Minister Ben Wallace declared before the House of Commons, 17 January 2022, that: "many countries have joined the Alliance not because NATO is making them do so ? but because of the freely expressed will of the governments and peoples of those countries. Countries choose NATO; NATO does not choose them." In the first place, he is confusing form with substance. Some people were indeed opposed to joining NATO. However, institutions were manipulated so as to create the illusion of a (...)

The US Joint Chiefs of Staff have posted online a conference featuring military historian David B. Crist, which took place on 18 September 2020. Therein, the expert reveals a nuclear war plan drawn up by the Pentagon in the 1980s. At the time, the United States was convinced that not content with having deployed its troops in Afghanistan at the request of the autochthonous Communist government, the Soviet Union was getting ready to invade the Iranian monarchy in order to seize the oil (...)

The Islamic Republic of Iran has just reopened its office at the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia). For several years, Iran and Saudi Arabia have mutually anathematized each other, thus dividing the Middle East into two camps, Shiite and Sunni. But this has not always been the case, notwithstading the historical roots of the antagonism between the two Muslim denominations. Thus, during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Iranian Pasdarans (and members (...)

Jalil Rahimi Jahanabadi, a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy committee of the Iranian parliament, said in a tweet on 15 January 2022: "#Important_Relations between #Iran and #Saudi Arabia are being revived and #Embassies are preparing to reopen. This will have an important impact on easing regional tensions and boosting the unity of the #Islamic world. Stupidity of #Extremists?. Tehran and Riyadh have been holding talks for four months through the heads of their secret (...)
