”Most people in the English-speaking parts of the world missed Putin’s speech at the Valdai conference in Sochi a few days ago, and, chances are, those of you who have heard of the speech didn’t get a chance to read it, and missed its importance. Western media did their best to ignore it or to twist its meaning. Regardless of what you think or don’t think of Putin, this is probably the most important political speech since Churchill’s “Iron Curtain” speech of March 5, 1946.” (1) – emphasis in green added

NATO after regime change in Syria: Webster Griffin Tarpley PressTVGlobalNews
“NATO doesn’t want a peaceful solution of the internal problems of Syria. They want the ISSUE. They want the issue kept alive. They want continuing violence, continuing civil war so they can use it eventually, if the conditions obtained, for an aggression, for a coalition of the willing, an armed attack, a no-fly zone, followed by regime change.”
“Now over the weekend, we’ve entered a roam of absolute delirium where Hillary Clinton says: “Time is running out for Syria to avoid, and I quote, “a catastrophic assault” which would threaten to destroy the Syrian State.” Webster Griffin Tarpley, in Washington (1)
“I think we should understand that that war has already started. The rebels are the foot soldiers of the NATO military alliance. They are being armed explicitly under the instructions of the United States and its allies,” Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, in Montreal (2)
“In the long-term, the loss of control over the budget and banking sector would leave the nations under the authority of an external force – a concept that threatens the very existence of the nation state as we know it today. This key contradiction between EU integration and national sovereignty undermines the European project from its foundations.”
Stratfor analyst Adriano Bosoni discusses the political tension at the core of the European financial crisis: the member states’ struggle to integrate fiscally and maintain national sovereignty.
