The Unz Review:ㅤ’Samarkand Spirit’ to be Driven by ‘Responsible Powers’ Russia and China, by Pepe Escobar

Amidst serious tremors in the world of geopolitics, it is so fitting that this year’s Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) heads of state summit should have taken place in Samarkand – the ultimate Silk Road crossroads for 2,500 years. When in 329 BC Alexander the Great reached the then Sogdian city of Marakanda, part of the Achaemenid empire, he was stunned: “Everything I have heard about Samarkand it’s true, except it is even more beautiful than

The Unz Review:ㅤWanted: Continuity Editors, by Ted Rall

The world needs more continuity editors. Filmmakers hire them to check for plot holes. Like, in “Forrest Gump” the lead character’s friend Lieutenant Dan couldn’t have invested their money in Apple Computer in 1976 because the company didn’t go public until four years later. Or, in “Pulp Fiction” when hitmen played by Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta narrowly avoid being shot, the bullet holes appear in the wall behind them before the first shot

The Unz Review:ㅤNSF Funds Shamelessly Fraudulent Science, by Jared Taylor

Your money pays for incoherent, anti-white mush. Video Link This video is available on Rumble, BitChute, and Odysee. As you have probably heard, the hard sciences are full of “white supremacy.” I have always wondered how math and physics could be racist, and thanks to a half-million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation, now we know. As the authors of a seminal paper report, they have “made whiteness visible.” The paper is called “Observing

Waanzinbar: Europa had nooit een alternatief en smeekte Poetin om Russisch gas

Bekijk de beste Waanzinbar van deze zomer! Tom heeft waardevolle informatie over de geschiedenis van Russisch gas in/en Europa. Heel veel zogenaamd gas dat verkocht is als Noors, Nederlands en Algerijns gas, was stiekem toch Russisch gas. Maarrrr! Het is niet zo dat de Russen Europa chanteren met hun gas, maar dat de Russen tegen hun eigen zin, heel afhankelijk zijn geworden van gasleveringen aan Europa, ondanks dat Europa onder grote druk van de VS in

The Unz Review:ㅤPutin’s Narrowing Options, by Pat Buchanan

A desperate Vladimir Putin is a dangerous Vladimir Putin, and there are signs Putin’s situation in Ukraine may be becoming desperate. In the last week, the Russian army in the Kharkiv region of Ukraine was driven out of some 2,200 square miles of territory, according to the Ukrainians, whose soldiers are now two miles from the Russian border. The Kharkiv battle was a rout for the surprised Russians who tore off their uniforms, threw down

The Unz Review:ㅤIs Reality Over the Kremlin’s Head?, by Paul Craig Roberts

Putin and the Kremlin have watched the failure of their “limited military operation” move from a Donbass conflict with Ukraine to a proxy war with the US and NATO to a full-fledged war with the US and NATO. Putin’s inaction as the conflict widens, as I said it would, into nuclear war, is extraordinary. He seems determined to hold on to his totally failed policy of a police action in Donbass with minimum commitment of

The Unz Review:ㅤArms Industry Group Says Pentagon Facing Inflation Crisis, by Andrew Anglin

Here’s an example of one of those things I’ve been saying forever and ever coming into the headlines. RT: The US Department of Defense will need an extra $42 billion in the next fiscal year to account for soaring inflation and rising procurement prices, according to the National Defense Industrial Association. In a report released on Tuesday it’s estimated that the Pentagon will experience a $110 billion loss of purchasing power because of record-high inflation.
