Russians Slowly Tightens Its Grip on Georgias South Ossetia "ConflictWatch Feed Russia"

 

Summary

On July 6, Georgian news outlets announced that Russian troops moved the demarcation line of the breakaway South Ossetia a further 500 meters south. Russian troops are now reportedly only 400 meters away from the major east-west highway (Baku-Tbilisi-Kutaisi-Poti) which goes across Georgia and is of major importance to the regions economy. By cutting the highway, as it did in 2008 war, the Russians can easily split Georgia into two parts. From a regional perspective, the military threat to the highway also concerns neighboring countries, as for the moment it is the only major road used to bring Azerbaijani goods to the Black Sea littoral, which sees active trade between Azerbaijan and Turkey.

The US Empire, the CIA, and the NGOs "ConflictWatch Feed Russia"

Washington (AHT The Ancient Greeks knew: Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful. No less a figure than the late Zbigniew Brzezinski and the CIA made use of this saying by recruiting the Muslim Brotherhood to fight a proxy war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, which led to the withdrawal of the Soviets from the Hindu Kush. Since then, the CIA used the mercenaries to fight more proxy wars in the Balkans, Chechnya, and Azerbaijan. Due to the wars of aggression against Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen the US and its vassal states created sectarian violence that led to civil wars. Right now, the CIA and the Muslim Brotherhood are present in the form of ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

No one has studied this triad more intensively than F. William Engdahl who is a renowned geopolitical analyst, risk consultant, author, and lecturer. Engdahl was born in Minneapolis/MN, and grew up in Texas. After earning a degree in politics from Princeton University, and graduate study in comparative economics at Stockholm University, he worked as an economist and investigative journalist in the US and Europe. He was named Visiting Professor at Beijing University of Chemical Technology and delivers talks and private seminars around the world on different aspects of economics and politics with the focus on geopolitical events. For the last 30 years, Engdahl has been living in Germany.

He has written numerous best-selling books on oil and geopolitics, The Lost hegemon: Whom The Gods Would Destroy, The CIA as Organized Crime, Full Spectrum Dominance: Totalitarian Democracy in the New World Order, Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation, and not to forget: Target China to name only a few. His books are translated into 14 foreign languages.

His latest book on the role of the NGOs focuses on their involvement in US regime change operations and in steering up fabricated mass protests to facilitate the efforts of the US Empire and the CIA to replace resilient national oriented governments by obedient ones that will execute the Washington agenda. All this happens under the pretext of democracy la US-American style.

The following interview focuses on Engdahls latest book in German Secret files NGOs (Geheimakte NGOs). Its conducted by Dr. Ludwig Watzal, journalist and editor, who lives in Bonn, Germany, and runs the bilingual blog http://betweenthelines-ludwigwatzal.com/.

Did Kyrgyzstan Get Sold a Hydropower Pup? "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

Barely a week passed after Kyrgyzstan triumphantly declared it had struck a deal with an international company willing to take up one of its ambitious hydropower projects for the agreement to begin looking highly suspect.

The first alarms were rung in the Czech Republic, where Liglass Trading, the obscure company that has committed to building and operating Akbulun HPP and Naryn HPP-1 in the Upper Naryn cascade, is based. Journalists there were apparently startled by news that a company they had never heard of had managed to land a contract for an undertaking that will involve investments running into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

The company's financial report for 2014, for example, shows Liglass Trading recording losses of around $53,000. That hardly seems like the track record of a company expected to handle a project that is by various estimates expected to cost between $400 million and $700 million to complete.

Reporters from one publication, Aktuln, decided to check out the address where Liglass Trading is registered, and all they found was a crumbling factory with a leaky roof.

But the deception has gone a little deeper than that. When Kyrgyzstan first announced the Upper Naryn cascade deal, the Liglass Trading website showed, as noted on EurasiaNet.org, that the company had experience in the former Soviet Union in Armenia and Russia, specifically on hydropower projects of roughly commensurate scale. Once questions began to be raised, all the websites content disappeared and was replaced by an Under Construction notice. And now, a radically overhauled website has reappeared, only with no reference to previous projects, but with multiple references to the Kyrgyzstan contract.
