Currency Warfare: What are the Real Targets of the E.U. Oil Embargo against Iran?

The end of Iranian oil exports to the European Union and the decline of the euro will directly benefit the United States and the American dollar. What the European Union is doing is merely weaken itself and giving the American dollar the upper hand in its currency rivalry against the euro. Moreover, should the euro collapse, the American dollar will quickly fill much of the void... Moreover, the rise in everyday prices, ranging from food to transportation, will not be limited to the European Union, but will have global ramifications. As prices rise on a global scale, the economies in Latin American, Caribbean, African, Middle Eastern, Asian, and Pacific countries will face new hardship...

Uzbek-Tajik Relations at a New Low

The permanently tense Uzbek-Tajik relations sank to a new low in November 2011 – January 2012... There is firm belief in Dushanbe that the rail blockade imposed by Tashkent on Tajikistan came as a response to the intensification of construction of the Rogun Dam... At the moment, Uzbekistan seems to regard the Rogun project as the key threat to its national security as the dam has a potential to reduce the availability of water resources downstream the Amu Darya...

«Shoot First, Ask Questions Later»

The news of a plea deal for US Marine squad leader Frank Wuterich charged in connection with the killing of 24 Iraqi civilians in 2005 neither caused a sensation nor even grabbed the headlines for a considerable period of time in the US media and the Internet. Initially, Wuterich faced three months of confinement... In stark contrast, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, for example, was locked up behind bars for 21 months in 2007 for arranging deadly dog fights at his house in South Virgina, but obviously the US justice finds it appropriate to value the lives of America's dogs above those of Iraqi civilians...

Missile Defense Deadlock: What Will It Lead To?

Moscow does not intend to propose any initiatives on missile defense, which the U.S. could interpret as concessions. This was stated by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, speaking on Ekho Moskvy radio station. He emphasized the negotiations on this subject proceed with difficulty, but they are not at an impasse. "A political decision is feasible, if there is a will to seek compromise," - said the official. We cannot simply adopt the American position. This would amount to action in detriment of one’s own interests," - added Ryabkov...

The Failed Coup in Bangladesh

The Bangladesh army late this month revealed that it foiled a coup attempt against the democratically elected government, led by Sheikh Hasina. The army further revealed that the coup was organized by some middle ranking officers and some retired officers, who were mainly motivated by ‘fanatical religious views.’ Extremist and banned organizations played critical role in radicalizing some of the officers of the army with the ostensive motive of establishing an ‘Islamic Emirate of Bangladesh...

Syria: looking for ways to make agrression legal

At S.V. lavrov’s press-conference it became clear the Syrian situation is gradually sliding to military solution... The plan of “regional intervention” by the League of Arab League or some members of the organization is starting to take shape. It calls into attention the fact that is exactly the time UN General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon begins to look for new reasons to intervene in Syria (and not Syria only)... The Syrian government published a list of states it prevented illegal arms supplies from (Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq and Jordan among them), but the information hasn’t become an object of interest for media and in a mysterious way it is not included into the Secretary General’s reports... The “UN Security Council” and “League of Arab States” operations failure made some League’s members come up with a new “initiative”...

The Conundrum of Iran

In essence, a war against Iran – up to date a secret war – is underway. The problem the parties involved are trying to resolve is to find a way of prevailing without entering the “hot” phase of the conflict...

US electoral system, or Freedom House up to its usual tricks

What is the difference between a good teacher and a bad teacher? A good teacher is at least the one who is able to solve the task he gives to his students. That is why I have always been puzzled by the fact that while “introducing democracy” all over the world Americans are evading this natural teaching “do as I do” method... The question is: why? It is simply because the electoral system in the “stronghold of democracy” is far from matching the concept of “the rule of people”. If it is introduced in Ukraine or in Russia it will lead to a big scandal...

Israel’s By-Pass Foreign Policy

The right-wing government of Israel has embarked on a novel foreign policy, one that seeks to develop close relations with sub-national state and provincial governments, thus by-passing national governments... The establishment of state-to-state relations between Israel and such sub-national governments as American states, Canadian provinces, and even Native American tribal nations has increased under the ultra-nationalist Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman... Similar interference by pro-Israeli interests is being seen in Scotland’s current attempt to break free of the United Kingdom. Israel has joint ventures with Spain’s Basque Land (Euskadi) and Catalonia, Germany’s Bavaria, and Australia’s New South Wales and Queensland...

The EU Pushes for Serbia Without Kosovo and Kosovo Without Visa Obligations

The EU debates over slapping an oil embargo on Iran and upping the pressure on Syria's Bashar Assad seem to have diverted the spotlight from the decision taken last week by the European Commission to open a visa liberalization dialog with the self-proclaimed republic of Kosovo in order «to eventually lift the visa obligation for citizens of Kosovo»...

Turkey, Islamic State and USA

The Turkey’s contemporary Middle East policy is inconsistent. On September 11 in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) the foreign chiefs of the United States of America, Iraq, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and the Persian Gulf monarchies declared their intention to “eradicate” the Islamic State. It’s worth to note that Iran and Syria were not among the participants. Just before the event Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Dovutoglu had held a meeting of the cabinet to announce that Turkey would not take part in ground operations and other actions on the Iraqi soil limiting its role to intelligence gathering and logistics. The decision echoes the country's refusal to allow the United States to station 60,000 troops in Turkey in 2003 to invade Iraq from the north, which triggered a crisis between the two allies.
