Domestic Plutocracy, Global Punishment

Over the last decade a wide variety of indications have testified to the cresting of the half-century long hegemony of the US in world affairs. US envoys no longer dictate to foreign leaders as easily as they did in the second half of the 20t h century, instructing them on how to line up on votes in the United Nations, compelling them to favor Western business interests inside their countries, directing their repression of left wing political movements, etc. The shrinkage of US political power is apparent on every continent...

Already ratified, START is still a matter of dispute to Russia and U.S.

Like its was in Soviet times, Russia`s tactical nuclear weapons (TNW) – due to their technical characteristics  – pose no threat to the U.S. territories, while the foremost placement of American TNW in Europe is the same thing as if Russia`s security was under threat coming from the strategic weapons... When the Cold War was over the U.S. did not seem to have an intention to remove its tactical stockpiles – about 200 B-61 free-fall bombs – from Belgium, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and Turkey. However, they call on Moscow to remove its TNW from NATO`s borders. In response, Russia came up with an adequate proposal asking the US to keep its TNW on its territory...

Petraeus at CIA and Panetta at Pentagon: more of the same and worse

Plans by President Obama to name General David Petraeus, the current commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, to be Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, replacing Leon Panetta, who will move to the Pentagon as Secretary of Defense, not only represents a continuation of America’s war policy but will result in an increase in America’s bellicose foreign policy around the world...

Libya and Korea: fatal cohesion of events (II)

Creeping of instability and political revolts in the Arab East has given birth to expectations that the democratic wave will soon reach North Korea as well. Indeed: if there is no chance to change the political regime in the DPRK by using military force so why not to choose less risky and not so expensive way do it – for example by providing “assistance” to the North Korean people who are yearning for democracy?..

Libya and Korea: fatal cohesion of events (I)

Though geographically the revolution-ridden North Africa and North Eastern Asia are far from each other, many analysts draw parallels and even come up with forecasts about similar fates of the leaders of Jamahiriya and North Korea. The current events in Libya put the following question – Does a small country have the right to conduct its independent policy in the contemporary world, regardless of the approval of the global ruling class and without running a risk to be punished for that?..

Gaddafi and the West's Cynicism

Upon destroying Libya, the global oligarchy will target Syria, Jordan, attempt to induce the disintegration of Iraq and Pakistan, start building an independent Kurdistan, and turn to enforcing the same “democracy” in Yemen along with the republics of Trancaucasia and Central Asia. After that, it will zero in on bigger players...

The Agony of Libya: What can be done

The people of Libya are in deep trouble. Gaddafi is managing to retain his hold on the capital Tripoli and much of the west of the country and keeping under pressure the rebels who seem to have secured the eastern city of Benghazi thanks to the intervention of the UN Security Council sanctioned creation of the No-Fly Zone and the destruction by US and NATO aircraft of almost 40% of the equipment held by the Gaddafi forces and the disabling of Gaddafi’s air defences and his air borne military capability...

Mullo Abdullo Reported Dead in Tajikistan

According to a report released by Tajik Ministry of the Interior, its forces finally managed to rid the republic from the armed group led by field commander Mullo Abdullo which for years remained one of the republic's worst headaches... Several commentators hold that US special forces might have helped to kill Mullo Abdullo.  Reportedly, the US special forces can cross into Tajikistan from Afghanistan...  Moscow's concern that the US is building a continuous belt of military bases across Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan are not entirely groundless.

Prospects of ‘Nuclear Hailstorm’ Calling for Action

The recently revealed cables, amounting about eight hundred, by the whistle blower website Wikileaks have detailed various activities of Al Qaeda and its leaders including the supreme commander Osama bin Laden. Any likely capture of Laden, which still appears a distant dream despite huge efforts of all kinds for a decade or so, warned one of its operative, will lead to barrage nuclear attacks, leading to killing and maiming millions...

A Book About Chavez: The Russian Perspective

A complete collection of books dedicated to Chavez would count hundreds of volumes. The popularity of the defiant Venezuelan leader reached unprecedented proportions when he slammed the US as an empire posing a threat to the entire humanity and even projected the collapse of American statehood in the XXI century... Chavez proclaimed agenda of building the XXI century socialism attracted followers across the continent, and the number of books about him grew accordingly. Needless to say, most of them are clearly inspired by Washington and supposed to smear Chavez whose regime the CIA is permanently trying to undermine...

First Month of War in Yemen

...Saudi Arabia cannot defeat the Houthis without having boots on the ground. The Saudi allies are not chomping at the bit for deploying ground forces in Yemen. Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates have no capability to conduct large-scale ground operations. A couple of battalions would not be enough. The first month of war in Yemen showed that these states have no wish to get further embroiled in the Yemeni conflict under the banner of Saudi Kingdom. Egypt, Turkey and Pakistan continue to watch the situation creep. They are in no rush to start a direct confrontation with Iran.
