Russia Revises Military Doctrine and Upgrades Strategic Nuclear Forces

...The Russian military leadership pays special attention to upgrading the nuclear shield. On the very same day the Russian President signed the document a RS-24 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) blasted off from Plesetsk successfully hitting a designated target at the Kura test range on the Kamchatka peninsula in the Far East... The day before the Commander of the Strategic Rocket Forces of Russia Colonel-General (three stars) Karakayev officially announced the development of a heavy solid-fuel ballistic missile known as RS-26. Starting from 2016 the RS-26 is to reinforce the group of solid-fuel rockets, such as Topol-M and Yars of the Strategic Missile Forces. The characteristics are classified but it is known that the missile already dubbed by media the "killer of missile defense" will be able to break through any type of missile defense...

2014: Two Events that Shook the World

The year 2014 has been a sensational year. It is the year that some hasten to bookmark as the year World War III began unobtrusively, stealthily, inexorably – involving as-yet indeterminate contestants. The tumultuous arrival of the Islamic Caliphate spearheaded by the Islamic State, the outbreak of the Ebola virus, kidnapping of 200 schoolgirls by Boko Haram – the year has had its fair share of blood-curdling events. It has been the year that the US economy showed credible signs of recovery, but in which the US also admitted defeat in a half-century old campaign to bring the Cuban revolution down on its knees... However, it is two major international developments that form a cluster by itself because of their profound impact on the future trajectory of world order. They are: the crisis in Ukraine and the emergence of China as the world’s largest economy...

Irreversible Decline?

"Saudi oil policy… has been subject to a great deal of wild and inaccurate conjecture in recent weeks. We do not seek to politicize oil… For us it’s a question of supply and demand, it’s purely business.”

U.S. Citizens Continue to Infiltrate Eastern European Governments

The recent appointment of the austerity-loving U.S. citizen and investment firm chief Natalie Jaresko as Ukraine’s Finance Minister continues a trend that has seen one Eastern European country after another appointing or electing U.S. citizens as major government officials... The current leader of the Polish parliament (Sejm) is former Foreign and Defense Minister Radoslaw Sikorski, a former U.S. resident and British citizen. Sikorski is married to the neocon columnist Anne Applebaum, a member of the editorial board of The Washington Post... The bow-tied President of Estonia, Toomas Hendrik Ilves, grew up in New Jersey and attended Columbia University and the University of Pennsylvania... Valdas Adamkus served two terms as President of Lithuania. Adamkus was a U.S. citizen and a Ronald Reagan–appointed senior official of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and served as a non-commissioned officer for the U.S. Fifth Army Military Intelligence unit... Other Americans who have embedded in Eastern European governments and political organizations include Ljubica Acevska, who became Macedonia’s first ambassador to the United States; Ukrainian anti-Russian politician Ivan Lozowy; Roman Zvarych, who became Minister of Justice in the Yushchenko government; and Peter Zwack, who became Hungarian ambassador to the United States and chairman of the Hungarian Entrepreneurs’ Party...

Colonial Reparations: Initiative of Caribbean States

In the XX century the developing countries tried to change the trend with the help of the USSR. The Group of 77 (the Non-Aligned Movement - NAM) applied efforts to overcome the legacy of colonialism and neo-colonialism. The Declaration for the Establishment of a New International Economic Order (NIEO) on May 1, 1974 meant to be a revision of the international economic system in favour of Third World countries... Today there are some signs signaling the revival of attempts to establish a new world order in the interests of the countries that belong to the periphery of world capitalism. The establishment of BRICS and the consolidation of the periphery countries within the framework of G20 are the examples of such activities... One more initiative to repay the damage inflicted on the poor South by the rich North was put forward in 2013 by the members of CARICOM... 14 Caribbean countries coalescing under the CARICOM banner took a unanimous decision to join forces and demand compensations from former colonies «for the lingering effects of slavery»...

China, Russia Sign CNY150 Billion Local-Currency Swap As Plunging Oil Prices Sting Putin

While it is beyond a doubt that the primary catalyst for Europe's triple-dip recession has been the nearly two quarters and counting of escalating Russian sanctions that were supposed to solely harm Putin (because who could have possibly foreseen that plunging German exports to Russia would have a far greater impact on the export-driven German economy), the truth is that the Kremlin itself is starting to hurt, if not so much as a result of the European trade embargo but mostly due to crashing oil prices, which have been driven lower almost exclusively by Saudi Arabia as part of its most recent secret bargain with the US, a bargain which as we read today is likely to tear OPEC apart.

2014: The Year Propaganda Came Of Age

From just about as early in my life as I can remember, growing up as a child in Holland, there were stories about World War II, and not just about Anne Frank and the huge amounts of people who, like her, had been dragged off to camps in eastern Europe never to come back, but also about the thousands who had risked their lives to hide Jewish and other refugees, and the scores who had been executed for doing so, often betrayed by their own neighbors.

Washington Has Shaped 2015 to Be a Year of Conflict. The Conflict Could Be Intense

...In my view, Russia and China owe it to the world to prevent the nuclear war that the neoconservatives who control US policy intend by simply replying in kind to Washington’s economic warfare. Russia and China hold all the cards. Not Washington. Russia and China should give no warning. They should just act. Indeed, instead of step by step, they should just let loose all barrels at once. With four US banks holding derivatives totaling many times world GDP, the financial explosion would be the equivalent to a nuclear one. The US would be finished, and the world would be saved... 2015 could be a very good year.

Iran Ready for New Round of Confrontation with US if There is No Other Option

...Iran is serious about delivering precision strikes targeting the detected weak points in the US-created system of international relations which turns the terrorist groups flying the banner of Islam into the main driving force of global destabilization. On the one hand, the United States uses aviation to strike the Islamic State while, on the other hand, it applies great efforts to clear all the obstacles on the way of Islamist advance. The mutual understanding between Iran, Russia and China stopped the offensive the United States was prepared to launch against Syria in 2013. The refusal of Tehran to give up its nuclear program in exchange for US empty promises is a proof of the fact that Iranians have drawn right conclusions as they look back at the fates of Milosevic, Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi.

Yemen or Iran: Which One is in US Sights?

...Saying yes to the operation against the Shia movement Ansar Allah (Houthis) Americans risk facing «unexpected consequences» one more time. No doubt the Houthi movement is the only force in Yemen able to counter the Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and the Islamic State (IS). The Yemen’s overthrown President Hadi was blamed for his close ties with Sunni radicals connected to AQAP and IS. As soon as the Houthis came to power, the AQAP militants gave an oath of allegiance to the Islamic State and started to fight the Houthis. Once again Obama aims at wrong terrorists...
