The US Electorate Moving Right? Or Just the US Administration?

The US government will not be willing to take the lead on the international stage in controlling global warming, limiting social inequality, bringing the financial sector to heel, or restraining its (since renamed) Global War on Terror. It will in fact try to obstruct healthy initiatives on all these critical issues. Happily, many countries are showing more spine to the US than they have in the past.

The Korean Peninsula: a Territory of Recurring Crises

On November 23 Pyongyang subjected the Yeonpyeong Island located 12-15 km away from the inter-Korean border to massive shelling... US-S. Korean military exercises involving a US marine group are to take place in the Yellow Sea on November 28-December 1. The exercises can be regarded as provocative in character given that they are conducted in the proximity of N. Korea's coast and that landing operations are a part of the exercise plan... Washington will almost certainly take advantage of the crisis situation to exert greater pressure on China and indirectly on Russia . ..

Russian Presence on Tajik Border

Fightingdrug trafficking from Afghanistan has become one of the  prior tasks for Russia in recent years as up to 30,000 Russians die from drug use every year... When Russian troops left Tajikistan in 2005 (only a small group of experts stayed to consult the border services), the situation got worse. Though very soon Tajikistan saw assistance from the U.S. and Europe, the Republic became one of the most active drug trafficking zones. When opium production in Afghanistan increased  almost 40-fold, it was no longer possible to control the flow of drugs via Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan to Russia...

US Ambassador McFarland's Grip on Guatemala

The media writes a lot about the US aggressiveness in international politics... Individual players in the framework of the global project – US diplomats, spies, Peace Corps activists, USAID employees - receive relatively little coverage. US ambassador to Guatemala Stephen McFarland is one of them...

As hope of euro fails, Europe’s fate depends on Germans

On November 23, the German newspaper Die Welt wrote: “Hopes that euro will unite the society have failed”. On the contrary, the gap between the countries, which earlier had unstable currencies, and the countries, which were heading to stability, has become wider. Germans do not understand the love for consumption, which led Greece and Spaniard to debts. At the same time, in Southern Europe people have allergy to Germans’ appeals to save money and to set clear rules of the game. What will be further?

The EU at a Crossroads

The European Union badly underestimated the cultural problems inherent in opening all borders... The yielding of national sovereignty to a Central EU has been spasmodic at best with the UK still being dubious about staying. Thus a situation where countries most likely to leave are the ones most able to assist members in need...

NATO and South Asian security

The Strategic Concept adopted at Lisbon envisages NATO's prerogative to mount expeditionary operations globally. The Lisbon summit confirmed that the NATO military presence in Afghanistan will continue even beyond 2014… Overarching these considerations comes the U.S. strategy visualising NATO as the provider of security to the Silk Road that transports the multi-trillion dollar mineral wealth in Central Asia to the world market via the port of Gwadar…

Terror Surge in Kashmir

26 November 2010, which also happens to be second anniversary day of the Mumbai terror attack, found Indian media abuzz with the reports that in the rising terror menace in the Kashmir valley have joined militants from different parts of the world including North Caucasus. One of India’s national daily, Indian Express on its edition of 26 November 2010 displayed photograph of two gun wielding militants from Chechnya codenamed Usman and Umar, who are active in northern regions of valley particularly in Sopore. Though the photograph has yet to be authenticated by the experts in the field, the presence of foreign militants in Kashmir and the recent rise in their numbers have been abundantly clear in recent days. It has no doubt direct bearings on prospects of peace in the turbulent Kashmir valley, but on a wider scale it may also give boost to the menace of international terrorism in other parts of the world as well.

Radical Islam attacks Central Asia

Hizb ut-Tahrirand other similar international radical Islamic political organizations have intensified their activities in Central Asia. In Tajikistan several dozens of members of Hizb ut-Tahrir have been arrested...

Europe and Syria

The exodus of refugees from Africa and Asia has ripped away the mask from Europe’s humanist face. It turns out that proclaiming and preaching one’s values is not the same thing as living up to them. Unable to resolve the migrant problem, they have begun a hunt for the guilty...
