Shanghai Cooperation Organization Gains A New Member

Authored by Darius Shahtahmasebi via TheAntiMedia.org,

Russia recently said it would support Iran’s bid to join the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, an emerging economic and political alliance led by China. This Shanghai Bloc was originally formed in 1996 before it was rebranded in 2001. Its membership includes Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Last year, India and Pakistan also signed the memorandum of obligations and are expected to become full members sometime this year. The bloc has expanded into a military organization over the last few years and has run joint military exercises in the past.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Iran now fully fits the criteria for membership and that discussions on its bid to join will take place this summer.

“Next in line [for membership]…is Iran, which has resolved issues related to sanctions from the U.N. Security Council,” Lavrov told Russian state news agency Itar-Tass, as reported by Newsweek.

The country now “fully meets the criteria for membership,” Lavrov told journalists at the end of a meeting of the group’s foreign ministers.

Iran currently has observer status in the organization, meaning it can attend summits. As is quite clear, Iran and Russia already cooperate closely both economically and militarily, particularly regarding the Syrian conflict. What is especially notable about this alliance, however, is the fact that the U.S. was rejected from gaining observer status in 2004, which, as Newsweek reports, reinforces “the impression that its goal is to exist in opposition to Western political and military alliances.”

Further complicating this issue is the fact that NATO member Turkey expressed a desire to join this organization at the end of last year. As Turkey transitions from a so-called democracy to a nearly outright dictatorship, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan may find he has more in common with his eastern counterparts than he does his western ones.

If this scenario were to occur, it would place a NATO ally in direct alliance with NATO’s longtime arch-rivals Iran and Russia.

As the world is seemingly preparing for a third world war between NATO and the growing Eastern bloc, we are witnessing the strengthening of alliances as well as the switching of some very strategic ones. One can only hope that as alliances switch and strengthen, the balance of power could shift just enough to prevent the powers-that-be from launching this disastrous war in the first place.

“As Turkey transitions from a so-called democracy to a nearly outright dictatorship, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan may find he has more in common with his eastern counterparts than he does his western ones.”

Far from that….EU is practically a dictatorship with reps not voted by the people. I think the reason is NATO is a largely white-only alliance? Turkey is all feathery. It floats towards whichever direction the wind blows.

Trump, you better see through this globalist crap, because otherwise your and my grandkids are going to be digging through nuclear rubble.

Or perhaps the COLD one never ended, and the Soviet Union merely underwent a cosmetic upgrade…

It’s pretty late at night…

I made a small bowl of fruit with a little scoop of ice cream.

Gosh darn a small brown spider crawled over the rim…

I ate it.. better protein  than  the ice cream.

So I was sitting in seat 1-C coming up north from Texas…

There was a bit of a commotion as there was a hornet buzzing about.

I got out of my seat and smacked the little f’r against the overhead with my hand.

I would have eaten it except for the ladies on the crew and seating about.

I am really a considerate guy.

Corbett Report did a good 17 minute video on this group years ago called “Meet The Shanghai Cooperation Organization”;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oikVGwPkPL0&feature=youtu.be

and a 4 minute update done this week;

https://www.corbettreport.com/the-shanghai-cooperation-organization-is-a…

The new alliance will account for 43% of world’s population and 24% of world’s GDP. Iran’s inclusion into the group is a key piece and, combined with the Swift banking alternative Russia and China are forming, will truly give the West a force to be reckoned with.

jeff montanye Took Red Pill Apr 29, 2017 8:35 AM

and welcome it is.  the west needs a force to be reckoned with.

however the west, likud zionists, intelligence agencies, military industrial complex, deep states, etc. gave their own people a force to be reckoned with to oppose them: the committing of the great mass murder/treason of 9-11.   bust this and they are castrated.

this technique has the added advantage of killing fewer people than most other ways of unseating the dynasty.  they are clearly guilty.  convincing the critical mass of opinion independent of the legacy media is a necessary part of success.   what can be gotten from the 9-11 families’ suits against saudi arabia?

Trump needs to change his tune on Monday. Give him the weekend to think about it since “the job is much harder than he expected it to be”.

His own family are globalists!!!

I thought for an insane moment that his behavior is a “rope – a – dope” but it looks like not.

BobEore beemasters Apr 29, 2017 4:17 AM

I suspect that the reason NATO is largely a white only alliance… is because it’s generally the case that white only folks hang around the frigid “North Atlantic” part of North Atlantic Treaty Alliance zones.

However, in the usual manner of our current era, the meaning of the term has functionally expanded into including such non-frigid zones as the s e Med… where a tiny pirate state is…. by degrees, so to speak…

inviting itself into that club. With intention of becoming the major player. It was via the formal reliquishing of their veto vote on the entry of Israel into NATO that Turkey signaled both it’s submission to the sionist entity… and it’s willingness to play a role in the new game – of breaking up not just NATO… but Europe itself… into tiny satrapies most easily managed.

“The bitterness of the developing feud between what are on surface still close NATO allies is one element of that new direction in theatrical plot line – but what’s at least equally important here is the speed and magnitude of Ankara’s switching the narrative towards Russia. The mind-boggling speed of the turnaround in the space of less than a month is a harbinger of how recklessly confident the conspirators against the real now feel. In the wave of pure emotion driven by the implanted nationalistic fervor of those who believe there was a coup attempt against the elected government, there is no time or place for critical thinking – if the “Chief” says America is now Satan, and Russia is the angel of light, when just weeks ago the perception management of the regime was quite different, that’s just how the masses are going to see it.” https://storify.com/SuaveBel/t-the-western-world /jULY 2016

The breakup of NATO -and it’s replacement by a defacto “ZATO” which conforms to the dictates of the Moscow-Tel Aviv energy monopoly alliance, will be accompanied by the isolation and break up of a once mighty Republic on the other side of the Atlantic. Stage-managing of which was the entire purpose of drumming the Drumpster into office.

But who knew>>>??? Hooo couldn’t seen it coming? The TRUMP DECEPTION was predicted 9 months ago bY those few who refused to drink the zheeple foolaid.

researchfix BobEore Apr 29, 2017 4:32 AM

In my definition “white-only” is Russia and Iceland. Politically incorrect, i know, like many truths.

BobEore researchfix Apr 29, 2017 7:12 AM

Curious that you would think of Russia as a white only country.

The history of the place is full of the usual made up stories designed to conceal what who where why and when… but when the varnish is stripped…

Russ and Ukrainia are an amalgam of the two streams of ethicities which moved into the zone around the same time – from different directions.

Varangians (aka Swedes, aka Vikings) from the northwest, river pirates and freemen – Kipchaks/Cumans from the east, steppe warriors, horsemen, blue-eyed but with features generic to the Sino-Mongol races. Like Genghis Khan, the red head. Still completely evident in the faces of those who call themselves Russ today.

We’re not races apart, anywhere on the planet, save for maybe outback Australia and Dravidians and Tottenhots. And the real “Aryans” came out of the East. https://storify.com/SuaveBel/return-to-khan-tengri-part-three        Our common enemy is Semitic racial supremacists and religious fanatics.

Sooo

well all the limp sarc from the beta boy brigade is done…

when all the down arrows in the world no longer produce the desired temporary opiate…

when the task of reasoning one’s way out of a dead end … for one’s entire culture… falls to those who really could not care less whether y’all fall down… or not.

I hope so. I just want to see people die and suffer to be honest. I want poverty, faminie disease, and corpses smeared into the pavement.

Cleanse this world of the filthy hominid monkies that have destroyed everything on this planet. And before you judge me – well I consider myself an ecologist realist that prefers to give precedence to all OTHER life that humans have systemically fucking destroyed.

So much fauna extinct within the what… last 100 years? Not to mention the daily geocide of cattle etc to feed all the useless people. I love animals!

If we need Lucifer to carry out this ecological deed, then so be it. Fucking do it!

Degenerate behavior is a product of the mind control operations at one of its many points of control. But of course it is multi-faceted.

Then kill yourself.  Because what separates us from the monkeys is the ability to solve problems, so lets fix this.

Any BTW, if you think Lucifer is going to do anything good for humanity, you are sadly mistaken.

ClassicCommodity SMG Apr 28, 2017 11:33 PM

Did my perfectly clear and objective comment go over the top of your head? HUMANS are the disease, why the fuck should I give homo sapiens precedence over world’s flaura and fauna? The world has been all but completely destroyed and there are 7 billion and counting.

Do you just think we can keep squeezing out more useless eaters at the expense of everything else?

It’s too late for alternatives – we don’t have the energy resources or commodity resources available to “solve problems” with.

I’m fighting for all the sheep, cows, chickens and fish that die everyday so that you can go on being worthless by eating them.

Socratic Dog ClassicCommodity Apr 28, 2017 11:59 PM

Like the man said, best thing you can do is kill yourself, and have your corpse turned in to the Nihilist Biscuit Factory, formerly known as Soylent Green.  That’ll save a few of your precious fucking chickens.

CuttingEdge Socratic Dog Apr 29, 2017 3:10 AM

Hmmm…Vegan much, CC?

Without humans, cows sheep and chickens wouldn’t be around either – at least, not in anywhere near their current numbers. Not exactly geared up for survival without those pesky humans around to farm and protect them from all the big bad wild beasts that would flourish. Think about it…

I’ll give you that fish would probably do better without us around, but they are fucked anyway, courtesy of the shit spewing from Fukushima over the next hundred years.

land_of_the_few Socratic Dog Apr 29, 2017 4:53 AM

Soylent is SOYa and LENTil, and not made of anything more schlocky, in the original book “Make room! Make room!” by Harry Harrison, that the film is based on.
