Lest we forget?

"There is something ironic—if not downright obscene—about the fact that in the UK the Poppy is used as the symbol of remembrance for all those who have died in the UK’s countless imperial wars, a symbol that is being used to punt the latest ‘adventure’, Afghanistan, home of the opium poppy..."

On the South Kuril Islands, Japanese propaganda and Stalin’s “modesty”

"If any of Russian observers had illusions that the new ruling party of Japan will be more realistic regarding the South Kuril islands dispute these illusions might vanish after October 17, when Japan’s Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Seiji Maehara named the islands “illegally occupied territories”... Japanese politicians are very consistent trying to win back “the northern territories”. For more than 20 years they have been trying to influence the public opinion in Russia to justify the transfer of the Kuril islands to Japan..."

Russians in the Ukraine and French in Canada

"In Canada English and French are both embedded in the constitution as Official Languages. Readers should know, however, that Canada has 10 provinces with their powers also embedded in the constitution. It’s generally accepted that while the Federal government can pass laws with respect to Federal matters superior courts, federal government hiring policies, use of official languages generally in federal matters the provinces have all other rights for languages..."

Afghanistan: Elections Leading to Quagmire

"Under pressure, Afghan President Hamid Karzai agreed that he failed to garner over 50% of the vote in the first round of the elections and accepted the run-off which is scheduled for November 7... It is possible that the run-off will render the situation even unclearer. In any case, the people of Afghanistan who are equally tired of Karzai, his US patrons, and the Talibs, will hardly benefit from the elections..."

Pakistan Caught in a Bind

"The recent developments in Pakistan show how it is grappling with extreme terrorist violence within its own territory... Reportedly from 5 October 2009, Pakistan, which has launched anti-Taliban campaigns, witnessed loss of more than 150 lives to terror attacks. The current chief of Taliban, Hakimullah Mehsud has openly threatened Pakistan of more such attacks unless it stops its planned operation in South Waziristan..."

Kissinger and Brzezinski behind Obama

It may seem inconceivable that in such a beacon of democracy as the United States of America, there are “czars.” Not just one or two, but a few dozen. The explanation, however, is quite benign: American political jargon defines “czar” as a special envoy or adviser to the president asked by him to guide a high-priority initiative. Appointed by the president and reporting only to him, “czars” operate largely outside of congressional oversight. Hence the nickname..."

Al Qaeda’s New Project of Jehad

"That Al Qaeda still invokes attention of the globe in its pronouncements of Jehad is corroborated with its call for a new front of Jehad against China. Abu Yahya al-Libi, a Libyan national and a top ranking leader of the radical organization, in Arabic broadcast on 8 October 2009 called for Jehad against China’s “oppression and injustice.”..."

The Outlook for Gazprom in Africa

"Gazprom is mainly oriented towards the European market, and strengthening its positions in Africa should be important to it as a way of diversifying its supplies to Europe... The failure of the attempts to convince Russia to sign the Energy Charter by which the EU would gain an extent of control over Russia's pipeline network made Brussels become more active on the African gas market..."

Turkey: Treaty Commitments Breached as Ankara Prepares for Military Solution in Syria

The Russian military said on February 4 that it has "reasonable grounds" to suspect that Turkey   is making intensive preparations for a military invasion of neighboring Syria. Images of a checkpoint on the border between the Turkish town of Reyhanli and the town of Sarmada in Syrian taken in late October and late January show a buildup of transportation infrastructure that could be used for moving in troops, ammunition and weapons, spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said in an English-language written statement...
