RealWorld . . . can it be? -

I've written a couple of times of the missile conflict in Georgia (see ' Russian or not - the fighter bomber? ' and ' Russian fighter bomber - Follow up '). We do not yet know the truth of the missile incident, but the undeniably grown aggressiveness of Russian foreign policy has led Georgia to decide to join the NATO radar system . In the near future NATO shall receive real time information on all incidents in the Georgian airspace. By her own bullying policy Russia keeps pushing her neighbors...

A few days back I wrote about the suspected Russian fighter bomber that is said to have dropped a missile in Georgia. See ' Russian or not - the fighter bomber? '. Russia reports their disappointment in how the international Group of Experts inspecting the incident seem to have taken the Georgian side. Russia suspects that Georgians have damaged parts of the missile to prevent its identifying. I must correct my statement in the previous post: the plane was not identified to have been Russian...

For the Soviet Union the Second World War ended 70 years ago. For millions in Eastern Europe, it was the beginning of another occupation by an utterly fascist system, an occupation that would last around 45 years. For German women it was the beginning of a massive rape wave, perhaps the biggest in human history, with Russian troops defiling any woman they could find. Women as old as 80 years and girls as young as 8 years were raped. Millions were raped, and hundreds of thousands died as a...

München (Munich) Obama has certainly started with Big Changes. And Joe Biden, now travelling in Munich, is seemingly backing up the President and moving forward with the new American agenda. According to a news release from Russia, " European media reported that Biden may voice Obama’s idea on a radical – up to 80% – slashing of U.S. and Russian nuclear arsenals. " Gosh. Many are still sceptical, of course, wondering if Obama can really change things -- will he be able to, is he a puppet...

Another Russian revealing dirty secrets believed to be in danger is Anna Bukovskaya. I have met several activists of "The Other Russia", the political opposition, and they have all said they phone calls are being listened to, and they are being followed. But I have not realised also kids can act as agents. Nashi Activist Tells of Snooping for Kremlin 06 February 2009 By Natalya Krainova / Staff Writer Undercover pro-Kremlin agents have worked in opposition groups across Russia to provide the...

Stalin is Russia's hero, " because he won the Great Patriotic War " (The Second World War; WWII). Russia's reborn Hero Russia is building up strong national sentiment, for which purpose they need Great National Heroes. To obtain Great National Heroes, Russia has closed down national archives, stopped going thru their past hidden history, and re-written their school books. Thus Stalin can now be nominated the Leading National Hero, as young people no longer know the truth about him. Or about the...

There is a rather vivid political discussion going on in Finland. The right wing politicians want finally to say aloud, what every Finn has always known, that Russia is Finland's major security issue. - Not 'threat', mind you, but 'issue'. We have a long history of Russian invasions, from the dawn of our recorded history: Novgorodians, Muscovites, Russians, Soviets, you name it. They all have made attacks to Finland, and some of them have even managed to occupy Finland. - Just read your history...

Since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine many have been drawing parallels between the prelude to WW2 and the current Russian-driven crisis. What's really funny is how oblivious the Russians themselves are to these parallels (even while desperately trying to draw their own), making a whole bunch of historical ironies possible. Useful idiots who consider themselves anti-fascists were rallying behind Vladimir Putin in Moscow a few days ago with banners saying Putin, People, Russia . You...

Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE A group of Master students of TAMK International Business visited St. Petersburg 14-16 May 2015. St. Petersburg appeared to us as a modern and European big city, which reminded us of the great Russian history. Of course the current economic situation was shown too especially when moving further from the city centre. We had very interesting company presentations of Finpro and Sokos Hotels. Both company representatives told about Russia and doing...

I stole this image from someone's blog in the US - she had collected old Finnish postcards from the 70s. I assume this is a folk band, and I should probably know who they are. I don't and the image makes me grin broadly. In my childhood, this kind of Karelia folklore was really popular. The dress the three women are wearing is not an official folk dress, but a feresi - the everyday dress of Karelian women, worn in the kitchen and cowshed. Interesting about the dress is that it has travelled...

Picture: Umberto Eco as seen by John Macdougall's camera in Chigaco Tribune on 14.11.2011 "Because now I am excruciatingly aware, each time I pick up a book, of all the books I am shunning in order to focus on the one in my hand." The above quote is from an article, Umberto Eco and the guilty pleasure of re-reading , by a cultural critic Julia Keller in Chigaco Tribune on November 9, 2011. The older one becomes the more angsty urgency there is to read those books that should have been read a...

By Omar Al Saadoon and Luay Al Khatteeb The concept of the "Rule of Law" is a very wide subject encompassing issues such as institutional reform, human rights and socio-economic issues. This post, however, is intended to give an overview of the legal concept of the rule of law comparatively speaking with common law jurisdictions and major countries of the BRICS. Introduction The underlying concept of the Rule of Law is not new to Iraq. Hammurabi's world famous Code of Law which dates back to...

I have written earlier about the tragedy of the Russian nation. Such suffering, such gifts to humanity, such corrupt, sadistic rulers. And so today. Asymmetric, highly ingenious web warfare, injecting vile poison to liberal societies. To what purpose? What is the positive vision? There is none but impotent ethnic-gangsteric rage, nothing to aspire for, no progress imagined, an age old despotism wishing for its old glories of rape and conquest. An empty shell, the elites of Russia, as always.

Suomen Antifasistinen Komitea (SAFKA) -

Satire is progressive and "leftist" when it makes fun of authority, the rich, and the powerful. It is reactionary, racist, and fascist when it targets the poor and the oppressed people. During the Cold War Western imperialism was aligned with religious conservatism. The working class and the Third World embraced Marxist atheism. Franco's Spain was the archetypal symbiosis between religion and fascism. After the Cold War everything in geopolitics has been turned upside down. The US is promoting...

Russia's position was very weak at the start of the Ukraine Crisis. It controlled nothing of importance by which it could threaten or coerce the West. It could not close the Danish Straits for Western traffic. Nor the Bosporus. It could not cut the US out of SWIFT or the international credit marker. Russia could not block SouthStream, NordStream or Ukrainian gas transits. Everything Russia COULD do amounted to shooting itself in the foot; it would be advancing Western and US geopolitical aims...

Finnish vampire slayer Jessikka Aro recounts her experience as both investigator and victim of Russian black magic on Ukraine Russia’s black magic on Ukraine has rarely been out of the international media limelight over the past two years. This coverage has generally focused on Kremlin attempts to sow confusion and disguise the hybrid war in Ukraine by planting false narratives, flooding website comment sections, and sowing conspiracy theories. As a result, global audiences have learned about...
