    peek through the diplomatic cloak

    It is not so difficult to peek through the diplomatic cloak. I look for the “factual interactions” between states, to provide me with information to ascertain Real foreign policy posture. By “factual interactions” I mean stuff like business deals, trade relations, who are in dept to whom and so on.

    Another way is to look at how geo political enemies use their propaganda. E.g. CNN and RTT. The two channels are polar opposites. Each takes shots at the other while pushing their own agendas. Between the two bull shitters lies the half truth. You will see the mistakes of the West on RTT and their successes on CNN. You will see Russia's successes on RTT and their failures on CNN.

    The ubiquitous diplomatic blanket is accepted as normal. People seem to be very comfortable consuming edited vetted bullshit info from main stream media without considering the reality. People then absorb this “information” and make important business decisions partly based on their world view that is, at the very least, inaccurate

    The truth is always complex and nuanced, but it is often the simple truths that are the most significant

    I like the way you think. Don't believe all the BS and propaganda were being fed in the media. Watch Al Jaseera, ENews, Sky, CNN, RTT, Euronews and form your own opinion. Somewhere between all the diverse opinions lies the truth. Sometimes it just takes a little longer to be revealed.

    You may be interested to watch "The Secret of the Seven Sisters".
    A four-part series that reveals how a secret pact formed a cartel that controls the world's oil.

    On August 28, 1928, in the Scottish highlands, began the secret story of oil.
    Three men had an appointment at Achnacarry Castle - a Dutchman, an American and an Englishman.
    Their vision was that production zones, transport costs, sales prices - everything would be agreed and shared. And so began a great cartel, whose purpose was to dominate the world, by controlling its oil.Four others soon joined them, and they came to be known as the Seven Sisters - Exxon, Shell, BP, Mobil, Texaco, Gulf and Chevron - the biggest oil companies in the world.
    The first part of this special series can be seen on Al Jazeera from Thursday, April 4, at the following times GMT: Thursday: 2000; Friday: 1200; Saturday: 0100; Sunday: 0600; Monday: 2000; Tuesday: 1200; Wednesday: 0100; Thursday: 0600
