Why I as a liberal democrat support EU-Russian cooperation

I was grown up in the transatlantic liberal democracy of Germany and know about the other historical paths of German history which wanted to make an alliance with Russia, be it the Black Reichswehr, be it Rapallo, be it the Eurasian axis of Sun Yatsen, be it the Hitler-Stalin Pact and the neutral Germany which was wavering between the blocs and never found its place, wanted to find its „place at the sun“ under Emperor Wilhelm 2 or Lebensraum in…

Sicherheitspolitik- NPD und AfD im Vergleich

Sicherheitspolitik- NPD und AfD im Vergleich

Es sind zwei Sachen, die US-Vorherrschaft zu kritisieren und was man stattdessen will. Die US-Vorherrschaft kritiseren auch Linke, aber Rechte wollen eben, dass Deutschland eben auch eine Grossmacht wird, sich hochrüstet und international „auf Augenhöhe“ mitspielt. Das ist die „hidden agenda“ . auch wenn viele Rechte sich auf die neutrale Schweiz und deren direkte Demokratie berufen. Aber das tat auch schon der rechtsradikale DVU-Führer Frey um die Leute zu beruhigen.  Dazu muss man sagen, dass Deutschland eben kein „besetztes Land“…

Vladimir Putin: The Real Lessons of the 75th Anniversary of World War II

Global Review documents a text from Russian President Vladimir Putin how he perceives the causes of the Second World War, the policy and guilt of all states involved, and the lessons he wants to teach us.

China- India border conflict: Five fingers or agreement?

China- India border conflict: Five fingers or agreement?

The Indo-Chinese border conflict at Ladhak has different explanations: China thinks that India´s new nationalism and its rapprochement with the USA, the hope that it can replace China as global factory, would now mirror in the military sphere. The Global Times writes: „An economy-crippling lockdown doesn’t seem to have deterred India from daring to dream big as its ambition to replace China’s role in the global industrial chain expands.  India’s northern state of Uttar Pradesh is forming an economic task…

Manifesto of the Left Counterjihad

Trump´s troop withdrawal from Germany, the future of NATO and the next D-Day

We are now entering a very decisive phase.

Short notice: Despite China and Russia – Islamism is not dead!

Kurznotiz: Trotz China und Russland- der Islamismus ist nicht tot!

Der War on Terror, der inzwischen eingestellt scheint unnd den man besser als War against Islamism hätte konzipieren sollen, wird nun wieder von Grossmachtkonflikten abgelöst. Während jetzt wieder alles auf Russland und China schaut,wachsen die Islamisten wieder heran,wobei ich auch die Erdogan-Türkei mit ihrer neoosmanischen Reichsidee mit den Muslimbrüfern aller Länder dazu zähle.Zudem auch ein Sturz Assads möglich ist,der dann eine islamistische Diktatur in Syrien hervorbringt.Russland wird dem nicht allzuviel entgegensetzen können.Dann hat man zwar Assad und die Russen samt…

Bannon, Kyle Bass, Guo Wengui and the Commitee on the Present Danger: China: Economic and psychological war against China and an ultimatum for the South China Sea

To understand Trump´s China policy a good source is his former national adviser and mastermind Steve Bannon who designed the America First policy.

Secondly, China was a totalitarian system that had many economic weaknesses and ripped the USA of its economic power and…
