The Geopolitics of Drug Trafficking

The geography of drug supplies from Afghanistan explains the drug lords' increasing interest in the northern drug trafficking route...The Talib surge in Afghanistan's northern provinces, the fighting with insurgents in Tajikistan's Rasht valley, and the second Kyrgyz “revolution” may be elements of the same picture – the establishment of favorable conditions for the transit of drugs from Afghanistan...

To Be Or Not To Be? On the 65-th UN Anniversary

The UN celebrated its 64 th anniversary on October 24, 2010... it is clear that these days the UN is in crisis and is unable to play the leading role in ensuring international peace and security.The perilous tendency of the past 10-15 years is that the UN is increasingly losing credibility, and that, moreover, responsibility for the process rests with the organization's own bodies rather than with any external forces. There are serious reasons to assume that the key UN institutions are deliberately eroding the UN credibility...

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?..
