Russian speaking Jordan

"What is the strongest connection between contemporary Russia and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan? Tourism? Business? Orthodox shrines? Big politics and problems that emerged after the state of Israel had been born? The answer will combine all this. But there is also something else, which is quite unexpected..."

WikiLeaks’ Revelations and their Substance

The posting of about 92000 reports, allegedly classified, covering a period of January 2004 to December 2009 spanning parts of the two US administrations and their activities related to Afghanistan and Pakistan by the WikiLeaks website have almost created a huge stir in both policy and media circles...

Climate Weapons: More Than Just a Conspiracy Theory?

The abnormally hot weather in the central regions of Russia has already caused serious economic damage. It has destroyed crops on roughly 20% of the country's agricultural land lots, the result being that the food prices are clearly set to climb next fall. On top of that, fires are raging over peat lands around Moscow. These days, the majority of forecasts concerning the climate are alarming...

Cuba: The July 26 Legacy and the Present

"At present Cuba must be credited with maintaining world-class social welfare standards. Most importantly, free education and healthcare are available to all Cubans... Cuba occupies the 48-th position globally in terms of the Human Development Index and thus belongs to the group of developed countries. In a stark contrast, Ukraine, a republic which boasted a high level of development in the Soviet era, currently ranks 85-th in the list. In the settings of socialism, Cubans have accomplished what neither Latin American countries nor industrialized capitalist ones can hope to..."

Talibjan Vs Taliban

"Hamid Karzai’s writ does not run large much farther from Kabul. There is no doubt Taliban is a force which must be reckoned with in any evolving solution format for Afghanistan... The same Taliban leaders like Mullah Omar who imposed radical Islam in Afghanistan are roaming free in Pakistan cities like Quetta with a popular base among significant section of Pashtuns..."

Kosovo Case in the International Court of Justice: Time to Shed Illusions

It is time for Moscow to shed counterproductive illusions in domestic politics and geopolitics. Unlike Belgrade's efforts aimed at securing the Serbian interests in the Balkan region and supporting Serbs in Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and elsewhere, the plan centered around the International Court of Justice has never looked really promising...

Aggression in the Light of International Law: Huge Problems and Minor Progress

"...The international law in its present form abounds with paradoxes. For example, it explicitly disallows the use of incendiary bullets, but contains no ban on the use of nuclear weapons. The present-day criminal law is in many parts just as incoherent: degrading treatment of captured occupants who brought death to the country they invaded is punishable internationally while aggression against a sovereign country is not..."

The AFPAK War - A Pakistani’s Perspective

"In the meanwhile the number of terrorist attacks mounted in many Pakistani cities far from the tribal areas continues to mount raising new fears that new strongholds of extremists in the Punjab are being created and are drawing upon resources of training and equipment from the tribal areas. This then is the backdrop against which US-Pak relations and their impact on the campaign Pakistan is waging to counter terrorism and extremism in Pakistan has to be seen and its impact on Obama’s Afpak policy gauged..."

Whither India?

"Supporters of the idea of sovereignty think that India's independent position has now been put at risk as the country's relations with the U.S were granted a 'special status'... Moscow cannot turn a blind eye to a possibility of worsening relations with India. In these circumstances the Russian authorities should not wait any longer and get prepared to protect its interests in South Asia..."

Political Manipulations with the Price of Oil

The drop in oil prices that began at the same time as Islamic State (IS) attacks in Iraq and Syria is impossible to explain with economic factors. The world has long been used to the fact that the market has reacted to every war in the Middle East, where 47 per cent of the world’s ‘black gold’ reserves are concentrated, with a sharp jump in oil prices. That is what happened during the two wars in the Persian Gulf, and that is also what happened when the Americans began their ‘mission to restore democracy’ in Afghanistan. And speculation about a possible military conflict between the US and Iran was accompanied by the expectation of a jump in oil prices of up to $200 a barrel and higher. At present, everything has turned upside down, but for how long?..
