Moscow and Ankara: reshaping the geopolitics of Eurasia

Speaking at the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London recently, Turkey’s President Abdullah Gül said that the role of the West in global politics was gradually diminishing, and called for the creation of the new world order based on harmonious relations between the US and other world powers, including the EU and the BRICS nations. The 'reset' of Ankara - Moscow relations turned to be one of the key issues in the 'No problems with neighbors' diplomacy…

US-Led Commodity Boom: Fake Prices, Global Crises

As any attentive shopper or driver almost anywhere in the world could tell you, the prices of basic things like food and gasoline have risen faster than inflation in the last five or ten years. In US Dollar terms, prices for all 24 commodities in the most widely traded commodity index fund rose by an average of about 100 percent from 2003 to 2008, for instance. And the pace is not letting up now. Gold rose by 30 percent in 2010, copper by 33%, wheat by 47, corn by 52, cotton by 92, and so on...

Croatia’s EU membership will bring balkanization to Europe

On June 24, at a meeting in Brussels the European Council decided for further enlarement of the European Union – on on July 1, 2013 Croatia should become the 28th members of the EU... 20 years ago the secession of Croatia and Slovenia marked the beginning of the bloody break-up of Yugoslavia, directed in Washington, Berlin, Vienna and Vatican. Now the “United Europe” is facing the threat of “balkanization”...

Credit Rating Agencies’ Potential To Erase Sovereign Countries

The global financial system abounds with parasites capitalizing on the so-called credit worthiness ratings of banks, companies, and even countries. The products they are dealing may be described in sophisticated economic terms, but in fact amount to useless imitations of financial instruments which are built tightly into the Western economy and serve as efficient economic weapons against big and small rivals...

US Switching From Afghanistan to Central Asia

Contrary to President Obama’s pledge, the US has no intention to turn the page on the military foothold in Afghanistan. In fact, the US plans to reinforce its presence in the region by partially relocating the pertinent military infrastructures to Central Asia... The plan to deploy US special forces in Central Asia and Pakistan was unveiled back in September, 2009. The Pentagon’s wishlist includes the stationing of mobile special operations groups in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan...

The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation`s Impact on the Region (II)

On international issues the most notable point in the SCO declaration was the assertion that “The unilateral and unlimited build-up of missile defence by a single state or by a narrow group of states could damage strategic stability and international security.”... The emphasis on “unilateral” and “unlimited” suggested that Russia and China along with their SCO partners wanted to keep alive the prospect of the cooperative construction of a defence shield which would then ensure that the nuclear deterrent of the two countries vis-à-vis the United States remained intact...

Enduring Freedom’s deadlock

What was the meaning of the intervention of Afghanistan for the US - if we do not count the interests of the Defense Industry complex and the drug business? The coalition troops came to the country controlled by the radical Islam and this control will be restored as soon as they leave the country. Americans’ fatigue of the war and the coming presidential elections made Obama take a very risky step. If the US fails to secure Karzai’s presidency the “Enduring Freedom” operation will go down the chute...

Implications of Indo-Pak Talks for South Asian Peace and Security

The two-day talks in Islamabad starting from 23 June 2011 incorporated a novel format of dialogue. For the first time in the history of bilateral talks, the official talks between the two countries divided the agenda of deliberations into three main segments: peace and security, Kashmir and confidence building measures...

Default by Greece and the US

In mid June Alan Greenspan, former Federal Reserve chairman, said a default by Greece is “almost certain” and could help drive the US economy into recession. Greenspan’s loud statement on Greece may be a “sound curtain” to prepare the global community to a default by the US... Strategically, it makes no difference if a default by Greece is possible in the near future or it will be delayed by means of infusion of ten billions euros into the national economy from abroad. The result will be the same in both cases: first a deflationary shock and than – hyperinflation. Nevertheless, if Greece receives the economic help from abroad the US will have more time to prepare the scenario of the managed hyperinflation of dollar...

Obama’s Drawdown Speech: SCO Faces the Afghan Challenge

The United States President Barack Obama’s drawdown speech will not stand out in the volume of his selected works as an outstanding piece of oratory. The rhetorical flourish of “On the Way Forward in Afghanistan” was definitely below par. On the other hand, Obama knew the occasion is not one of celebration but of having to give a sober, convincing justification for what has got to be done about something that went horribly wrong

Iran: Coming out in the Open to Join First Line of Battle against Islamic State

...Iran realizes that Iraq turns into a springboard for launching an Islamic State aggression against Iran so it makes no secret of its involvement there anymore. The supreme leader of Iran Ali Khamenei says the activities of the US and its allies lead to split among Muslims instead of eradicating terrorism. Tehran believes that the only way to counter the threat is to make Iraqi Shiites join the fight against terrorists. The unparalleled in scale pilgrimage of Iraqi and Iranian believers to the Shia holy city of Kerbela is a telling example of Shiites’ unity...
