As NATO war-mongering against Russia intensifies, Canada faces a difficult choice

No area of public policy is so shrouded in secrecy, obfuscation and outright deception than foreign policy. Most of the time it doesn't seem to matter much to the majority of voters who have more pressing things to worry about. But when Canadians read a headline that says "Russia mobilizing for war" one would hope they would take notice. A more absurd declaration is hard to imagine but there it was -- coming out of the offices of CSIS, the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service. It was just the latest alarmist rhetoric in a steady stream of anti-Russian propaganda that coincided with the largest NATO military exercise -- dubbed Anaconda -- since the end of the Cold War.

"We are at war," declared French President François Hollande after the bloody terrorist attacks in Paris. "And we'll be merciless." French politicians and media joined in the chorus, singing "La Marseillaise," the French national anthem.

No, in reality, the war has hit home, big time.

République centrafricaine, une autre 'guerre de pillage' sur le modèle du Congo-Kinshasa

La clé de la sanglante crise qui s'aggrave en République centrafricaine (RCA) ne se trouve pas dans le conflit armé entre chrétiens et musulmans, comme le martèlent nos médias liés à de puissants intérêts des pays de l'OTAN/OCDE, incluant le géant minier canadien.

Cette clé, elle se trouve dans la géostratégie de cette RCA grande comme la France, son ex-colonisatrice, et riche en ressources peu exploitées (diamants, or, uranium, pétrole, potentiel hydraulique, agriculture, et des terres arables qui attisent de puissantes convoitises extérieures).

Central African Republic: Another 'looting war' on the model of the Congo-Kinshasa next door

The key to the bloody crisis worsening in the Central African Republic (CAR) does not lie in the armed conflict between Christians and Muslims, as encapsulated and repeated ad nauseam by our corporate media linked to powerful interests in NATO/OECD countries -- including mining giant Canada.
