A contract is a contract, but the gas war must be on time

"...Despite the recent highlight declaration by Barack Obama about the new political course and “reset” in US-Russia relations, the US administration will continue to hamper Russia’s relations with Europe relation as long as there is an option for it. And first of all it will use the Ukrainian case. It means that the gas wars will continue until Russia diversifies the routes of its gas supplies to Europe and shifts at least part of them from the zone of political influence of the US..."

Russia`s military doctrine: nukes as most weighty argument in strategic deterrence

"What is especially important about Russia`s new military doctrine is that it allows to use nuclear weapons to repel aggression if an enemy applies conventional weapons in a large-scale war. If the national security happens to face a serious threat, Russia does not rule out a possibility of a nuclear attack, including a preemptive one, against an aggressor in either large-scale or regional war. Actually, we see that Russia has lowered a threshold of nuclear deterrence. Thus, Russia`s nuclear strategy starts to resemble more that of the United States..."

India modernizes its American ties

"There is a high degree of bewilderment bordering on angst in the Indian mind about the Barack Obama administration’s “reset” of the US regional policies... The Delhi strategists now realize that not only for now but also for the foreseeable future, it is Pakistan that would occupy centrality in the US policies... Equally, there is better awareness in Delhi that the war in Afghanistan is not merely about hunting down Osama bin Laden but is also a Clausewitzean war with an agenda towards Central Asia, Russia, China and Iran..."

Kashmir, South Asian Security Challenges and China

"The joint US-China statement on the eve of US President Barack Obama’s visit to China last week has sparked a furious debate in South Asia. The statement called for joint endeavor on part of both the countries to step up measures for peace and development in South Asia... What prompted the US and China to include South Asia in their joint statement particularly India and Pakistan is yet unclear..."

Uzbekistan: drifting West

"Uzbekistan’s foreign policy is becoming more West-oriented. In late October the EU removed the sanctions it had imposed on Uzbekistan after the massacre in Andijan in May 2005. Uzbekistan is one of the US’ key partners of the US and Central Asia again... After the launch of “Northern network of supplies”, intended to replace route via Pakistan which became too dangerous, Uzbekistan has become especially important for the US, because all the transit routes agreed with the Russian authorities end at a check point in Termeze in Uzbekistan..."

Hidden Agenda in IEA Forecasts

"Generally, World Energy Outlook 2009 can be regarded as a PR initiative of importers seeking dominance over natural gas markets. Though it must be recognized that the IEA advanced data-gathering system positions its reports among the best sources of information about the state of the energy sector, the IEA estimates and conclusions cannot be taken uncritically due to serious inaccuracies and bias in them..."

Balkan Shadow of Berlin Celebration

"The truth... is that there are parts of Europe where the fall of the Berlin Wall is not regarded as a totally positive change since immediately upon the alleged completion of the bloodless Cold War Europe had to face a proliferation of real armed conflicts... The disintegration of Yugoslavia — a process that cost thousands of lives - commenced only a year after the demolition of the Berlin Wall, notably, the unified and extremely powerful Germany was one of its drivers..."

Terrorism - without faith and nationality

The conference was attended by leaders and journalists of Russian and foreign broadcasting companies, diplomatic and special agencies, representatives of the Council of Europe and OSCE, experts from 22 countries worldwide..."

Who is to Blame for the Financial Crisis?

"It seems President Obama has done as much as humanly possible to avoid prosecution of the many varieties of criminality that flourished in the Bush administration, and the White House has generously extended its indifference to Wall Street, where virtually no one has been held accountable in connection with the ongoing financial crisis... Wall Street and the rest of the financial sector has largely maintained a satisfied silence while Obama and Co. have done what they can to stymie investigation into wrongdoing..."

An unholy alliance: The Media, the State and Big Business

"Readers might not be very familiar with "Рrivate Eye", the UK’s one and only satirical magazine that’s been going for decades and long a thorn in the side of the Establishment in spite of the fact that its editors are very much a part of the Establishment. But then this how they get the ‘inside dope’ on the corruption and other nefarious ‘dealings’ that occupy the ruling elite who assist their business pals in ripping off the public purse..."
