Powerstruggle in the Assad family- the last hope of the West? For what?

Powerstruggle in the Assad family- the last hope of the West? For what?

„It seems that Western governments and liberals have not learned their lesson. They still want Assad been toppled and then a democratic, peaceful Syria would emerge. The new hope is an internal power struggle within the Assad family, especially by his cousin: „Leading the cast is the Syrian leader, Bashar al-Assad, and Syria’s first lady, Asma al-Assad, but star billing has so far been taken by the president’s first cousin, Rami Makhlouf, who last week took to Facebook to do…

Russian empire concepts at their limits?

Russian empire concepts at their limits?

My impression is that Putin has slowly run into a dead end. Alexander Rahr, Gazprom advisor for the EU and Germany attests that the concept of a Russian resource empire is in question at the latest with the oil price war. Karaganov’s idea of ​​Russia as a global supplier for international security seems to reach its limits in Libya if Russia does not want to engage in an imperial overstretch. Only the ICBMs are left, but also in question if…

Potsdam Encounters (Potsdamer Begegnungen): War and Peace in Corona Times

Potsdam Encounters (Potsdamer Begegnungen): War and Peace in Corona Times

Author: Alexander Rahr It is not true that after Corona the world will be different – perhaps more peaceful. Even after the 9/11 terrorist attack and the global financial crisis, people believed that humanity would change mentally, address more pressing issues, and make the planet more cooperative, safe, and peaceful. None of this has happened and will not happen now. That is the quintessence of the last German-Russian expert conference in the course of the Potsdam meetings. Even if their…

Potsdamer Begegnungen: Krieg und Frieden in Corona-Zeiten

Autor:Alexander Rahr Es stimmt nicht, dass die Welt nach Corona eine andere – vielleicht friedlichere – wird. Auch nach der Terrorattacke von 9/11 und der Weltfinanzkrise hat man geglaubt, die Menschheit würde sich mental verändern, sich dringlicheren Problemen zuwenden und den Planeten kooperativer, sicherer und friedlicher machen. Nichts davon ist eingetreten und wird auch jetzt nicht passieren. Das ist die Quintessenz der letzten deutsch-russischen Expertentagung im Rahmen der Potsdamer Begegnungen. Auch wenn ihre Inhalte von deutschen Leitmedien aus unergründlichen Motiven…

Dabei überschneiden sich einige Gruppen und Apologeten und vermischen sich auch auf Demos. Der eigentliche Sturm aber kann kommen, wenn 10 Millionen Kurzarbeiter arbeitslos und…

Was Nationalsocialism the product of distorted Hindu ideas by Germans?

Was Nationalsocialism the product of distorted Hindu ideas by Germans?

An Indian professor aired the thesis that Nationalsocialism was a product of the distortion of Hindu ideas by the Germans. The video is available here: As far as I know, the first traditional German grand narrative was taken from the mythological pagan writings of the pre-Christian Edda, the Nibelungen, the historical person of Arminius/“Hermann“ who defeated the Romans and the Kyffhäuser. At that time it had nothing to do with the Veddas or Hindu mythology or whatever. It was a…
