Rapprochement Between Russia and North Korea and the West's Real Korean Agenda

This year Russia, like China in the recent past, confirmed in practice its opposition to the isolation of the DPRK and to excessively broad interpretations of the UN Security Council's resolutions which authorize sanctions against the country to reign in its nuclear and missile programs. The view held in Russia is that, whatever the circumstances, sanctions should not hurt the civilian sector of the economy. This view, combined with Russia's own national interests aimed at integration into East Asia regional cooperation process, led Moscow to decisively reach out for North Korea…

UN Mission in Libya an Attempt to Legitimize NATO Aggression

On September 16, the UN Security Council passed Resolution 2009 establishing a “peacekeeping” Support Mission in Libya to be headed by British citizen Ian Martin...Essentially, the new Mission is issued a mandate for converting the ongoing NATO military campaign aimed at occupying Libya into a UN-flagged operation. Even a brief legal review proves that bringing in a UN flag is no way of legitimizing an overland offensive in Libya. Rather, what the UN is doing at the moment is as illegitimate as the NATO campaign…

Chinese map of world politics (II)

Western political analysts often describe international politics using a “chess” model. Chinese people estimate political situation and actions of political forces as a game of chess played by three and more players. From this perspective, the main chess match on the global political arena is now being played by the US (white) and China (black). The two players are fighting for control over natural resources of the planet (chessboard), of which significant part is located on the territory of Russia…

Russia's War on Drugs

A summit of Central Asia's anti-drug quartet – Russia, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan – established last year to coordinate efforts aimed at suppressing the outflow of drugs from Afghanistan convened this September in Dushanbe. In a few days, the second meeting of the regional anti-narcotics conference was held in Kabul. Russia as a country for which the drug threat is a pressing national security challenge plays the key role in building and running both groups... The state of the drug problem in Russia is affected directly by the situations in Afghanistan and Tajikistan...

Chinese map of world politics (I)

Though the third world war (“cold”) war between the global hegemon (the US) and its main rival for leadership (the USSR), which headed Western and Eastern political blocs respectively, ended with the defeat of the Soviet Union and a seemingly unconquered supremacy of the liberal and market model of the world order was established it was in that very time already when this model began to crash quite regularly...

Israel: Continuing to Rely on Polemics

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu used his address to the United Nations General Assembly as an occasion to insist that the West Bank was historically the Jewish lands of Judea and Samaria... Netanyahu claimed the right for Israel to maintain “defined military sites” in the West Bank... Netanyahu accused the United Nations of being the “theater of the absurd,” anti-UN rhetoric not heard in a speech before the General Assembly since ex-Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi railed against the UN two years ago... Obama is more concerned about securing American Jewish votes and financial support for his re-election than in seeking any fair agreement on Palestinian independence...

Prospects of ‘Palestinian Spring’ and the United Nations

While putting the case for Palestinian statehood at the 66 th session of the United Nations General Assembly on 23 September 2011, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas raised the emotional pitch and argued, ‘the Arab Spring must be followed by the Palestinian Spring.’ Recalling late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, Abbas exhorted the members of the international body to realize ‘inalienable rights of the Palestinian people,’ and help fulfill the Palestinian dream to be 194 th member of the United Nations Organization (UN)…

European battle march to Caucasus

The European Union (EU) continues attempts to expand its influence on post Soviet territories, including South Caucasus. On September 29-30, Warsaw will host “Eastern partnership” summit, which agenda includes alongside with Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova also Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. On October 6-7, French President Nicolas Sarkozy is expected to visit Yerevan, Baku and Tbilisi and passions are running high around his coming trip...

Who killed Burhanuddin Rabbani?

A number of theories have appeared on who killed Rabbani, adding to all-round confusion, and the only good thing is that the needle of suspicion is moving by the day further and further away from the Taliban. But then, someone did order Rabbani’s killing, isn’t it? Who was it? Continue digging deeper and deeper, and don’t allow oneself be distracted by the US’s drum-beating or sabre-rattling against Pakistan...

Kosovo Serbs in a Trap

Since the end of the 78-day long 1999 campaign of NATO air raids against Yugoslavia, Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija remain locked in a ghetto. These days they find themselves living in a NATO trap built by KFOR and the Albanian separatist “administration” backed Eulex whose only goal is to strengthen the institutions of the “independent” Kosovo. The readiness of the Kosovo Serbs to safeguard the northern part of the breakaway province, however, came as a shock to both Belgrade and the West.

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?..
