The Abdication of the Emir of Qatar Due to the Collapse of Anti-Syrian Forces

Qatar is an extremely important link in America’s chain of strategic interests in the Middle East... At the same time, Qatar and the US are effectively becoming major competitors on the wave of the «shale revolution» and in view of the anticipated expansion of American companies into the global LNG market after 2016. Washington could «suddenly» open its eyes to the fact that «the emir has nothing on at all» when it comes to democracy, a «national protest» having already been organised against his government. Then may Doha not be surprised at the variability of the sympathy shown by the great ones of this Earth and forget the former achievements of the current ruling dynasty in the fight for freedom...

The All-Seeing Eye of Big Brother

Europe and the US are being rocked by scandals related to the creation of a system of total surveillance and control over the population of the planet. In the middle of June, human rights defenders from the American Civil Liberties Union sued the US government and US intelligence agencies for wiretapping. At the same time, the European Union has demanded an explanation in connection with reports that the US intelligence services have been gathering information on the telephone calls and internet activity of citizens of EU member states...

The Libyan Lesson and Jihad in the Middle East

...Despite the fact that there is an obvious connection between the matrix of the fight for power in Libya and the situation surrounding the Syrian opposition, neither Brussels nor Washington nor even the liberals among the Syrian opposition wants to understand what further attempts to overthrow al-Asad's government in Syria will lead to. And if no model for regulating the current large-scale (from the social, economic, political, geographical and ethnic perspectives) conflict in Libya has yet been worked out through the mediation of the EU or the UN, what sense is there in continuing to shake up the situation in Syria? It seems that European and American leaders’ decisions on Syria are beyond the bounds of political expediency.

The U.S. Sees the World through a PRISM

The scandal which broke on June 7 around articles published in the American newspaper The Washington Post and the British paper The Guardian could very well be more damaging to the United States than the scandal surrounding Wikileaks... We need to accept a simple thesis: security in the information society is even more «nationally oriented» than classic security. Now, when the world is still in shock from what is happening, is the time to implement the initiatives of Russia and China for the international regulation of cyberspace. It may be that even those countries which previously hesitated to support these initiatives could significantly change their positions and a resolution of the issue might finally get off the ground...

Farewell UK

...The United Kingdom will leave the European Union within 5 years and likely sooner. In making this assessment it’s largely wasteful to scan the economic issues for they are not a driving force. In fact the catalyst is one man, Nigel Farage, with a powerful following and whose popularity is on the increase but before we get to that, some history...

NSA is All about Preserving the Power of the Aristocracy in a Dystopian World

In 2004, the surveillance was aimed at a newly-elected U.S. senator from Illinois named Barack Obama. The imagination places no limits on what sort of blackmail personal information NSA now holds over the head of President Obama, someone who has complied with every dictate from the U.S. intelligence infrastructure. Today, Obama believes he is in control of the NSA spying network. In fact, he is not... Others monitored by NSA include all sitting members of the U.S. Congress, every governor of the 50 states and territories, every celebrity, in fact, everyone who uses an electronic communications device or network anywhere in the world, from the busy streets of Hong Kong and Cairo to the very remote city of Kyzyl in the Tuva Republic of Siberia and Grytviken on the Antarctic island of South Georgia...

US and British Global Spying – the Poachers Appoint Themselves as Gamekeepers

The poachers – caught in the act – are now appointing themselves as the gamekeepers. Former CIA contractor Edward Snowden has performed an immense service to international public interest and democratic rights by exposing the «industrial scale» illegal spying operations of the American and British governments. The victims of this vast criminality against international laws and norms are the citizens of the world and every other government. Yet, far from showing any sense of remorse or apology, the recidivist perpetrators are crying foul and demanding justice...

Obama’s Wild Neocon Dream

...President Vladimir Putin’s strong words at the G8 summit fell on deaf ears. If anything, the US is encouraging its key allies to raise the ante. This is evident from the exceptionally hard line that the Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal took at the joint press conference with the visiting US secretary of state John Kerry following their talks in Jeddah on Tuesday. Faisal just... Meanwhile, Kerry is on a regional tour of Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan, which aims at coordinating the role of the US’ allies in the pursuit of the military track…

Brussels Gambit and US World Wide Interests

The European summit is to open on June 27. As the date was approaching, the issue of Serbia’s European Union membership talks start date was more and more shifting into spotlight... Germany’s stance will be decisive. The issue will be discussed by all 27 full-fledged members at working dinner on Friday. It is reported, the draft decision mentions fixing a concrete start date for the talks between Brussels and Belgrade on Serbia’s accession. But Germany is intent to press for changing the draft decision so that it would be possible to exert pressure on Serbia pushing it for diplomatic recognition of Kosovo...

Financial Market Manipulation Is The New Trend: Can It Continue?

Governments and economists take their hats off to free markets.  Yet, the markets are rigged, not free. ... No country dependent on foreign capital is sovereign.  A country dependent on foreign capital, especially from enemies seeking to subvert the economy, is subject to destabilizing currency and economic swings.  Russia should self-finance. ...The greatest harm that is being done to the Russian economy is not due to sanctions and the US attack on the ruble.  The greatest harm is being done by Russia’s neoliberal economists. Neoliberal economics is not merely incorrect.  It is an ideology that fosters US economic imperialism. ... If Russia is to survive, Putin must protect Russia from Western economic institutions and Western trained economists.
