The Aching Heart of the North Caucasus

The Kabardino-Balkar republic plays the key role in the Adyg world. Various Adyg subgroups – the Adyg, Kabardin, Circassians, Shapsugs  along with related ethnic groups such as the Abkhazians and Abazins and the influential Circassian diasporas – regard Kabarda as their main region. Due to the reason, the Kabardino-Balkar republic is often referred to as the heartland of North Caucasus...

Wikileaks: The Book of Revelations? Not if you read the MSM

The revelations come thick and fast, or faster than they were but aside from the odd mention, you wouldn't know it if you relied on the mainstream media. If ever we needed evidence of collusion between corporate - so-called public broadcasting and the state then the way the diplomatic cables published by Wikileaks have been almost entirely ignored is the proof...

US Hopes To Reverse History in Cuba

Among other revelations, WikiLeaks exposed the US Department of State's plans for a color revolution in Cuba... The past several years have been a period of heightened activity for the US Interests Section in Havana. Washington is convinced that Cuba's anticipated economic reform opens exceptional opportunities to reverse the country's post-colonial history...

The Pentagon’s Christmas Present: Largest Military Budget Since World War II

On December 22 both houses of the U.S. Congress unanimously passed a bill authorizing $725 billion for next year’s Defense Department budget… The proposed figure for the Pentagon’s 2011 war chest includes, in addition to the base budget, $158.7 billion for what are now euphemistically referred to as overseas contingency operations: The military occupation of Iraq and the war in Afghanistan…

Geopolitical Games Around “Greater Circassia”

Judging by the fact that several US research centers are studying the genocide allegedly suffered by the Circassian people and doing what they can to put together a basis for the independence of Circassia, the “Circassian problem” features permanently on Washington's humanitarian agenda...

Who Can Help Tackle the Afghan Conundrum

Awareness is growing among Afghans that Russia has long turned the page on its Soviet-era campaign in Afghanistan and has nothing to do with the hostilities underway in the country. At the moment, Russia should stage a comeback in Afghanistan, but certainly not as a military power. Rather, Russian businessmen and engineers should lend Afghans a hand in bringing back to life the old Soviet-built economic infrastructures and in creating new ones...

EU’s “Christmas Present’ for Bulgarians and Romanians

On December 21, Romania and Bulgaria, unexpectedly, received a “Christmas present” from Germany and France. On this day the European Commission received a quite remarkable letter written jointly by the French Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux and the German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière. The ministers wrote that they were going to use their veto right not to let Bulgaria and Romania join the Schengen Area...

India-Russia ties in the “neo-liberal” age

If the official visit by President Dmitry Medvedev to India this week came anywhere being marred, that was from a most unexpected quarter – onions. Indians can’t make curries without onions and the price of onions shot up by 200 percent in the bazaar. One kilogram costs a dollar-and-a-half and that is a lot of money for 80 percent of Indians. They were contemplating how to substitute onions with finely chopped leaks in their curries as Medvedev arrived. ...

Thaci's Regime of Butchers and Europe's Moral Weakness

Will the storm triggered by Marty's report translate into a serious judicial investigation and lead to the punishing of Albanian war criminals - thus changing things not only in the Balkan region but also in Europe - or will the storm subside under Washington's pressure? The inability of the EU authorities to stand up for justice promises the EU an ugly future painted in the bloody colors of the Albanian flag...

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?..
