Attempts to Falsify the History of World War II Undermine the Foundations of the Modern World Order
August 23, 20:12
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov
MOSCOW, August 23. /TASS/. Attempts to falsify the history of the Second World War offend peoples and undermine the foundations of modern world order, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov wrote in an article titled “Lessons of History and New Milestones” published on Sunday in Russia’s Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily and China’s Renmin Ribao daily.
“The current year goes by under the mark of celebrating the 70th anniversary of ending the Second World War. For Russia and China, this jubilee bears special significance,” Lavrov wrote. “Our countries were allies in fight against Nazism and Japanese militarism, they took the main blow of aggressors, bore the biggest losses,” he continued. “Our peoples managed to withstand that dreadful fight and win thanks to outstanding courage, self-sacrifice and mobilization of all forces,” he said.

Comparing the Ukraine and Vietnam Wars: Donbas is Recognized as a Legitimate State Under US Public Law 86-90
Could US Senator John McCain find North Vietnam on a map during or before the period he spent 5 years as a POW in Hanoi? Could you? The answer is no.
North Vietnam only existed in Public Law 86-90. Some of the other countries we also recognize that are enshrined in the law did not exist concretely until 1991.
The Vietnam War and Ukrainian war are intrinsically and inseparably tied together by Public Law 86-90. Like Cossackia (the generic western geo-political term recognizing Donbas’ legitimacy), the problem with North Vietnam is it never existed! Even Wikipedia shallowly recognizes this. “The Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRV; Vietnamese: Việt Nam Dân chủ Cộng hòa),[a] generally known as North Vietnam…”
When we recognize North Vietnam as a country or North Vietnamese as the army we fought in Vietnam, we have no choice but to recognize “Cossackia” and the republics in Donbass. By extension, we must also recognize the right of the other regions (republics) inside Ukraine to break away like they were promised by the Ukrainian Nationalists.
Following up on the Public Law 86-90 story at www.globalresearch.ca entitled “US Congress and President Obama Officially Recognize Donbas’ Freedom! “Sputnik International interviewed Frank Costigliola, University of Connecticut Professor of History and editor of the Kennan Diaries.
The point of the interview was to ascertain the validity of the US recognizing Donbass on the basis of “Cossackia” according to the Captive Nations Proclamation of 1959.

The Real Reasons For the Iran Agreement — Paul Craig Roberts
By Paul Craig Roberts on July 18, 2015
Iran does not mean much, because Washington can renew the sanctions at any time merely by making false charges against Iran. Obama knows this even if Lindsey Graham and John McCain pretend that they don’t know it.

Historic Iran nuke deal resets Eurasia’s ‘Great Game’
This is it. It is indeed historic.
by Pepe Escobar
This is it. It is indeed historic. And diplomacy eventually wins. In terms of the New Great Game in Eurasia, and the ongoing tectonic shifts reorganizing Eurasia, this is huge: Iran — supported by Russia and China — has finally, successfully, called the long, winding 12-year-long Atlanticist bluff on its “nuclear weapons.”
And this only happened because the Obama administration needed 1) a lone foreign policy success, and 2) a go at trying to influence at least laterally the onset of the new Eurasia-centered geopolitical order.
So here it is – the 159-page, as detailed as possible, Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA); the actual P5+1/Iran nuclear deal. As Iranian diplomats have stressed, the JCPOA will be presented to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), which will then adopt a resolution within 7 to 10 days making it an official international document.
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has described the deal — significantly — as a very Chinese “win-win” solution. But not perfect; “I believe this is a historic moment. We are reaching an agreement that is not perfect for anybody but is what we could accomplish. Today could have been the end of hope, but now we are starting a new chapter of hope.”
Zarif also had to stress — correctly — this was a long-sought solution for an “unnecessary crisis”; the politicization — essentially by the US — of a scientific, technical dossier.
Germany’s Foreign Minister Steinmeier, for his part, was euphoric; “A historic day! We leave 35 years of speechlessness + more than 12 years of a dangerous conflict behind us.”
Looking ahead, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tweeted now there can be “a focus on shared challenges” – referring to the real fight that NATO, and Iran, should pursue together; against the fake Caliphate of ISIS/ISIL/Daesh, whose ideological matrix is intolerant Wahhabism and whose attacks are directed against both Shi’ites and westerners.
Right on cue, Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed the deal will contribute to fighting terrorism in the Middle East, not to mention “assisting in strengthening global and regional security, global nuclear non-proliferation” and — perhaps wishful thinking? — “the creation in the Middle East of a zone free from weapons of mass destruction.”
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stressed the deal “fully corresponds” with Russia’s negotiating points. The fact is no deal would have been possible without extensive Russian involvement — and the Obama administration knows it (but cannot admit it publicly).

Carnagie: How the Kurds Helped Draw the United States Back to Iraq
Through its pragmatic foreign policy, the leadership of the Kurdistan region has won trust in Washington and other capitals.
In August 2014, U.S. President Barack Obama launched air strikes in Iraq against the self-proclaimed Islamic State. This decision ran counter to his presidential campaign in 2007, when he promised that if elected, he would withdraw U.S. troops and disengage from Iraq. It also contradicted his policy of not directly intervening in Iraq or Syria without approval of the U.S. Congress or a UN Security Council mandate to use force.
The aversion to strikes had remained firm despite the Islamic State’s emergence as a force in Syria, its occupation of Fallujah in December 2013, and its takeover of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, in June 2014. However, in August, when the Islamic State’s fighters threatened the Kurdistan region, they seemingly crossed a redline.
Je vous annonçais avant-hier que 89 personnalités politiques de l’Union européenne figurant sur une liste noire établie par le pouvoir russe, étaient désormais déclarées « personna non grata » en Russie.
Parmi les quatre personnalités françaises, figurent:
– Bernard-Henry Lévy, le va-t-en guerre bien connu, – Daniel Cohn Bendit pour qui, sans doute, Vladimir Poutine est trop opposée aux dépravations sexuelles, – Bruno Leroux, président du groupe socialiste à l’Assemblée nationale et enfin, – Henri Malosse, président du Comité économique et social européen…
A noter que cette liste noire a été divulguée quelques jours après le vote de l’interdiction des ONG qui se mêleraient de politique en Russie, ceci à l’appréciation du pouvoir russe, s’il le juge nécessaire.
Cette liste noire est, en même temps qu’une mesure préventive de sécurité territoriale, aussi une mesure de rétorsion de la part de Moscou, contre l’UE qui avait dressé également une liste noire de personnalités ou entreprises russes interdites en UE.
Daniel Cohn Bendit avait déjà été interdit de territoire
l’homme aux multiples passeports, Daniel Cohn Bendit, avait déjà été interdit de territoire. Mais c’était du territoire français. C’était une décision du général de Gaulle. Suite aux troubles auxquels il avait participé activement en mai 1968, il avait été expulsé vers l’Allemagne, ce qui avait laissé à la France quelques bonnes années de répit. Malheureusement cette mesure avait été rapportée par l’un de ses successeurs, probablement Valéry Giscard d’Estaing. Daniel Cohn-Bendit qui vient juste d’obtenir la nationalité française, à 70 ans, en ce mois de mai…
Quant à Bernard-Henri Lévy, il ne pourra pas aller en Russie faire de l’agitation comme il a si bien su le faire en Ukraine et en Libye notamment… Heureux Russes!
Newly-released video alleges Turkey is sending weapons to Syria
A video has emerged purporting to show artillery, hidden among medical supplies, in a convoy of trucks said to be operated by Turkish intelligence officers.
Turkish pro-opposition newspaper Cumhuriyet – The Republic – alleges the trucks were heading for Syria, and the hands of rebel fighters. Turkey denies arming extremists in Syria.
It’s a potentially embarrassing release for the Ankara government, a week ahead of general elections in Turkey.
Four prosecutors thought to have stopped the convoy have been detained, along with 34 officials accompanying the trucks, some of whom are said to have shot the video.
They are believed to face charges of treason and espionage, while the affair has invoked state secrecy and the media has reportedly been censored.
The Turkish government claims the search of the trucks at the border with civil war-torn Syria, was carried out by supporters of anti-government cleric Fethullah Gulen, who is based in the US.
Syria is in the throes of a four-year civil war. The video’s release comes as rebels in the country are advancing in Idlib, a province bordering Turkey.

What is left on his agenda?
CrossTalking with Edward Lozansky, John Laughland, and Mary Dejevsky.
Fifteen years ago Vladimir Putin assumed the Russian presidency and no one can doubt that he has left his mark on the country since then. Widely popular at home and demonized in the West, Putin has presided over Russia’s transformation from a country on its knees to a renewed global power. What is left on his agenda?
