«Russia's Deepest Interests Are Linked to the Arctic»

"Developments concerning the Arctic region have been a recurrent theme in politics this April. Russian President D. Medvedev and Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg reached a breakthrough agreement on the demarcation of the long-contested maritime border between Russia and Norway in the Barents Sea and the Arctic Ocean, and Russian Prime Minister V. Putin visited Franz Josef Land where he stated that geopolitically Russia's deepest interests are linked to the Arctic..."

Karzai mobilizes regional support

Any Indian military deployment in Afghanistan is bound to be a potentially exhausting military mission and needs to be avoided. The Indian stance in this regard is similar to that of Russia, which also refuses to get drawn into the military conflict... India and Russia could collaborate with local Afghan partners in reviving some of the Soviet era economic projects in Afghanistan. Any enterprise that leads to employment generation will be particularly useful for stabilizing the Afghan situation..."

Peace, Stability and Taliban in Afghanistan

"The President of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai during his visit to India (26-27 April 2010) ensured that in the forthcoming peace conference, to be held in Kabul, no extreme elements will be allowed in the power sharing arrangement. The power sharing agreement aims at, among other things, reintegration of Taliban with the mainstream society... the power vacuum in coming months will surely put forth new challenges and as well as constraints not only before Afghanistan but also the regional and global players in the region..."

What Appears Disquieting to Europe's “Democratic Conscience”

"The spring, 2010 Ordinary Session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is opening in Strasbourg on April 26. Surprisingly, the PACE has no intention to discuss the recurrences of Nazism in the Baltic countries, Ukraine, Croatia, Albania and Kosovo on the eve of the anniversary of the main event of the XX century – the victory of the anti-fascist coalition in World War II. Nor will it focus on the socioeconomic ills currently overwhelming the entire Europe from Iceland to Greece..."

Terror, Petrodollar Warfare and Plan B for Iraq

"The death toll in Iraq is surging after more than 7 years of international occupation. The ballots cast during the March 7 parliamentary elections still have not been completely counted, and the tide of terror of some obscure origin in the country is raising as we watch. Blasts took over 70 lives in Baghdad on April 23, and, as predicted by the US military, under the circumstances the withdrawal of the US forces from Iraq is likely to be suspended if not altogether abolished..."

START III and the Strategic Stability Problem

"The Nuclear Security Summit which convened recently in Washington produced little more than general declarations. In contrast, START III (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) signed by Russia and the US on April 8, 2010, and the extensive Protocol detailing its provisions deserve to be called a breakthrough in the sphere of limitation of both offensive and defensive strategic arms..."

When What Couldn’t Happen… Happened!

"December 24, 2013. President Obama announced that earlier that day the 7th US airborne had landed in Northern Alberta, Canada, near the “tar sands” and had sent small contingents of troops into Edmonton and Victoria, the capitals of the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia respectively. Mr. Obama, in a terse note to the Canadian ambassador said “no great nation, least of all the United States of America, can tolerate any country cutting off its oil supply. Once our imports from Canada are increased we will withdraw our forces leaving only a “token” presence..."

Afghanistan after the Obama Visit

"President Obama had cancelled an invitation to President Karzai to visit Washington. American media reports maintained that in retaliation Karzai invited President Ahmadinejad to Kabul and stood by his side while, in a scathing speech in Kabul Ahmadinejad berated the United States and attributed Afghanistan’s problems to the presence of foreign forces. The American media suggested that the visit Karzai undertook to China immediately thereafter was also designed to win himself some other external support... These reports appear to be much exaggerated..."

Thoughts on Communism and Capitalism

"Although Communism may be dead in fact if not name, the conditions that spawned and nurtured it are very much with us today. Large corporations have replaced the noblemen, the dwindling middle class is no buffer between the haves and the have-nots, and the rich get richer. Not much different than 1917... Change, unpredictable change, is coming to your home and sooner than you think!..."

What Agenda Will the New Polish Elite Offer to the Country?

"The question arising in connection with the death of a large portion of the Polish leadership in the recent plane crash near Smolensk is: what will be the contours of Poland's politics under the new elite which is to take the place of the victims of the tragedy in the nearest future?.. It clearly prompted a tide of patriotism in Poland, and the sentiment – implicitly if not explicitly – draws verve from the recurrent Polish theme of opposition to Moscow. The 1940 Katyn massacre and the recent plane crash near Smolensk as a sort of 2010 Katyn are forming a stable association in the Polish collective consciousness..."

Situation in Ukraine has been leading up to this for a long time and it has finally happened.
