Alain Rodier. DR.
Mohsen Abdelmoumen: You are the author, among others, of “Grand angle sur le terrorisme” (Wide Angle on Terrorism) and “Grand angle sur la mafia” (Wide Angle on Mafia). In these two very relevant books, you analyze terrorism and mafias, which brings us back to the links between these two phenomena. One is talking more and more about hybrid terrorism related to serious criminality, what is your opinion on that?
Alain Rodier: The term « hybrid terrorism » emerged to highlight the links between terrorist movements and crime in general and organized in particular. A first phenomenon is well known: that of the petty criminals who enter into terrorism. Interest is then reciprocal. Different « losers » see it as a way of « fulfill oneself » by getting out of their criminal anonymity by espousing a cause that, in their vast majority, they do not know. What is amazing is that they are not only able to give their lives for this cause (like almost all active soldiers), but that their essential aim is martyrdom. Apart from Japanese suicide bombers, modern history knows no similar cases. The great question that is posed and which has not yet been answered satisfactorily is: why? Lire la suite »
Dr. Jean Bricmont DR.
Mohsen Abdelmoumen: What is your analysis of the situation in Syria and Iraq?
Dr. Jean Bricmont: It is confusing, because the US wants to support the Iraqi government, which is supposed to be its ally – although it is closer to Iran than the United States – against the Islamic State, but also wants to use the same Islamists, at least in their so-called moderate form, against the Syrian government.

Robert David Steele. DR.
Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Syrian troops with the Russians are gaining ground and are winning the war. What is your reaction to this so-called chemical attack in Syria? How do you think this chemical attack occurs when the US says Assad’s departure is no longer a priority?
Robert D. Steele: The attack was a false flag attack intended to deceive President Donald Trump and his closest advisors. Lire la suite »
Robert David Steele. DR.
Mohsen Abdelmoumen: You wrote the book The Open-Source Everything Manifesto: Transparency, Truth, and Trust. Its content as well as the fact that you have distributed it free on the web are revolutionary. Can you explain your concept of Open Source to our readership?
Robert David Steele: First, although I understand there is a pirate copy of the book free on the web, it is the only one of my 10 books that I do not own the English rights to. I can give a free digital copy to anyone that wants to publish it in any other languages. It has been translated into Chinese. My other books are both free online and also for sail at Amazon.

Colonel Régis Chamagne: « NATO has become a tool at the service of US imperialism, itself at the service of the financial oligarchy’s project »
Colonel Régis Chamagne. DR.
Mohsen Abdelmoumen: You are talking about a plan for the destruction of nation-States, especially by breaking their armies. It is a terrible fact. Can you tell us about this project?
Col. Régis Chamagne: The objective of the financial oligarchy is to seize the riches of the world, and to achieve this, humanity must be enslaved. Thirty years ago, some 60 people owned 50 percent of the world’s wealth. At the time, the image used was that of a bus: we could fill a bus with those who owned 50 percent of the world’s wealth. Today, they are only eight people who own half the wealth of the world. Lire la suite »
Brian Cloughley: “The greatest achievement of Mr. Trump would be engage in positive discussions with Russia and China”
Brian Cloughley. DR.
Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Don’t you think that we are in a continuation of the cold war between the USA and its allies in NATO on one side and China and Russia on the other, and who has interest to provoke a confrontation between these superpowers?
Brian Cloughley: It’s not so much a continuation as a resurrection of the Cold War. After the Warsaw Pact disbanded in March 1991, NATO, although deprived of any reason to continue in existence, managed to keep going, and in 1999 added Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary to its 16 members. As the BBC noted, these countries became “the first former Soviet bloc states to join Nato, taking the alliance’s borders some 400 miles towards Russia.” With good reason Moscow wondered what on earth the US-NATO military alliance might be planning.

Dr. Andrew Bacevich: « Since the end of the Cold War, the United States has used its military recklessly and foolishly ».
Dr. Andrew Bacevich. DR.
Mohsen Abdelmoumen: In your opinion, is not the crisis in Syria and Iraq the direct result of the American interventions in Iraq of 1991 and 2003?
Dr. Andrew Bacevich: There is no single cause of the crisis, but the US invasion of Iraq in 2003 played a large contributing role by shattering that country. Lire la suite »
