Offshore: The Overarching Scourge

The world seems overflowing with crises, ranging from the revolutionary to the financial, and from the economic to the apocalyptic—think, respectively, of the Middle East, Europe's sovereign debt debacle, the ongoing malaise in America, and global warming. Stresses of all kinds have been elevated for several years, and it would be rash to forecast a return to relative calm and stability across the lion's share of the globe any time soon...

President Tadic - back to square one

Extraditing the last leaders of the Serbian national opposition, who walked free - the former commander of Bosnian Serbs Ratko Mladic and former president of the Republic of Serbian Krajina in Croatia Goran Hadzic to the International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in the Hague - and taking monumental efforts to justify equitable agreements with the separatist regime in Pristina - the Serbian authorities have ended up with nothing...

The "Liberation" of Libya: NATO Special Forces and Al Qaeda Join Hands

Special forces composed of  US Navy SEALS, British Special SAS Forces and French legionnaires, disguised in civilian rebel garb, are reported to be behind major operations directed against key government buildings including Gadhafi's Bab al-Aziziya compound in central Tripoli... NATO special forces and the CIA sponsored Islamic brigades under the command of "former" jihadists constitute the backbone of combat capabilities on the ground, supported by the air campaign, which now includes Apache helicopter raids...

Ratko Mladic trial: a story of some legal and illegal aspects

The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) last Thursday (August 25 th ) held another court hearing on the case of Gen Ratko Mladic, following almost two months of lull since the last hearing in late June. But summer vacation is not the only thing to explain such a long pause. In fact, the events unfolded in quite an unpleasant way... The prosecution said that two separate trials were needed in view of the fact that Mladic has 'health problems'...

Where is Afghanistan Headed (II)

While a number of Afghanistan’s neighbours and near neighbours have the capacity to indicate in concrete terms and through concrete actions their reservations regarding the continued presence in Afghanistan of American troops and American air power after the scheduled withdrawal of all foreign forces in 2014, there is no doubt that the most important reactions would be those of Pakistan and to a somewhat lesser extent that of Iran...

Does European Union’s «engine» «knock»?

The results of 1H 2011 revealed in mid August became like cold shower for all the optimists and first of all for the German government.   If in the first quarter a steady growth of GDP was stated (by 5% in comparison with the same period of previous year), the on- the- quarter growth in the second quarter was almost flat – only 0.1%, the lowest figure since the beginning of 2009, when the global financial economic crisis was at its peak.

Meskhetian Turks Hostages to Geopolitics

News came early this month that – after recurrent delays – some evolution can be expected towards a resolution of the problem of the Meskhetian Turks' repatriation to their ancestral land in Georgia. The Meskhetian Turks were deported to Central Asia from Georgia's Akhaltsikhe district and other regions bordering Turkey in 1944. At the moment over 70 Meskhetian Turks are promised repatriate status in Georgia...

Revisiting the Treaty of Friendship

The Treaty of Peace, Friendship and Cooperation, signed this month forty years ago between India and the Soviet Union, resonates in policy circles in post-cold war world order. The treaty signed in the height of the cold war reflected the ‘model’ relationship between the only alternate superpower and the largest democratic country beyond bi-polar affiliation. It still holds lessons to be learnt in the post-cold war international politics....

Washington’s Banking Sanctions – Formal and Informal

...Since 1 April 2009, American financial regulators have fined European banks 32 times totalling nearly $25 billion... On 30 June 2014, the French bank BNP Paribas, which ranks fourth in the world in terms of assets and second in France, agreed to pay US authorities a record $9-billion fine. The bank’s management is charged with helping its Sudanese, Iranian and Cuban clients carry out dollar transactions banned by the US sanctions regime. In the coming months, giants of European banking like the German Kommerzbank and Deutsche Bank, French Credit Agricole and Societe Generale, and Italian Unicredit, among others, could also be subject to penalties...
