Habitation and a name for India in the BRICS (II)

India would have important choices to make in the period ahead even as BRICS’ political profile gets etched in ever-sharper terms. There is no denying the fact that the BRICS’ New Development Bank presents itself as an alternative to the US-dominated global financial institutions... BRICS is destined to be a unique asset for Indian diplomacy. Even today’s detractors are bound to appreciate at some point that BRICS has great value for an impatient leader like Modi who is bent on creating new momentum for India’s national policies.

Habitation and a name for India in the BRICS (I)

If the annual BRICS summit meeting, which just ended in Fortaleza, Brazil, assumed an unprecedented level of interest in India, three reasons could be attributed to it... it is possible to say that the Modi government decided to inherit the BRICS brief from the Manmohan Singh government and has not felt the need to tamper with it – at least, not yet. This becomes yet another template of the continuity that can be expected in the Indian foreign policies under the leadership of Modi...

US – Afghan Pact Remains Elusive

The sudden appearance of the US Senator John McCain in the Hindu Kush Mountains last weekend reminds the regional powers that there is more to Afghanistan's presidential election than meets the eye... McCain himself is not new to the frontline. He is a frequent visitor to Syria's neighboring countries to shore up the sagging regime change agenda against President Bashar Al-Assad. His missions to Ukraine aimed to ensure that the gains of the regime change in February did not get dissipated. His Afghan mission may seem on surface to be somewhat atypical... But in reality he was undertaking a typical McCain mission in Afghanistan – namely, to remove the road block that delays the signing of the US-Afghan security pact leading to the establishment of US military bases and advancing the ‘pivot’ to Asia...

Who is Afraid of India’s BJP?

The famous ex-employee of America’s Central Intelligence Agency, Edward Snowden has barged into the budding romance between the new Indian government and the Barack Obama administration that promised to bear fruit in the fall when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is due to visit Washington. The Washington Post newspaper has disclosed documents detailing that the US’ National Security Agency (NSA) targeted India’s present ruling party Bharatiya Janata Party [BJP] for snooping... Three questions arise: What really happened? Second, why it happened? Third, what is to be done?

Iraq: Need of international consensus

The best part of the US President Barack Obama’s update on Thursday regarding developments in Iraq has been his promise that he will be vigilant about ‘mission creep’ and «American troops are not going to be fighting in Iraq again». Cynics may say this is how all ‘mission creeps’ began, but Obama robustly defended his optimism: «We [US] do not have the ability to simply solve this problem by sending in thousands of troops and committing the kinds of blood and treasure that has already been expended in Iraq». It sounded credible. But then, conditions apply... Obama repeatedly said that a political solution is needed in Iraq...

US on Сomeback Trail in Iraq

The US President Barack Obama broke his silence late Friday in a formal statement at the White House in Washington, DC, regarding the dramatic developments in northern Iraq resulting in the fall of Mosul and other places to the hands of the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant [ISIL] last week... When will the intervention start? Obama clarified: «it is going to take several days»... A US military operation in the Sunni heartlands of northern Iraq would most certainly mean the disruption of Iran’s communication links with Syria...

China Makes Overture to India’s Modi (II)

...The US’s strategy toward the Modi government will be driven by its agenda to harness India tightly to its ‘rebalance’ strategy in Asia, which aims at isolating, surrounding and if possible containing China... The American pundits and the US lobbyists in India reprimanded the Manmohan Singh government for lacking «strategic thinking» and for still upholding the cold-war era concepts of «non-alignment» and «strategic autonomy». We may expect a sea change in the Indian attitudes in these respects under the Modi government. Much of India’s corporate media and big business who back Modi are also pressing for closer ties with the US and Japan...

China Makes Overture to India’s Modi (I)

After an interlude of some fifty-five years China is making another historic overture toward India. The India-China relations are once again at a crossroads. The then Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai took the initiative to visit Delhi in 1960 even as storm clouds were gathering in the horizon over the disputed border between the two countries with a proposal to settle the differences in a spirit of give-and-take to mutual benefit. India spurned the offer and the rest is history. The forthcoming visit to Delhi on Sunday by the Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi as the special envoy of President Xi Xinping – an extraordinary gesture in diplomatic terms – is taking place in vastly different circumstances. But a common thread runs through all the same...

Anatomy of India’s General Election (II)

There are two competing narratives regarding what to expect from Prime Minister Narendra Modi. His acolytes keep switching between overlapping descriptions of him to convey their adoration of their idol – Loha Purush (Iron Man) and Vikas Purush (Development Man). They believe passionately that Modi will put their country back on a high-growth track, root out corruption, and resort to a new, muscular foreign policy that enhances India’s global standing... A second narrative, on the contrary, is of ‘Apocalypse Now’, almost entirely borne out of Modi’s background as a pracharak or activist of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh [RSS], a far-right paramilitary organization founded in direct imitation of European fascist movements...

Anatomy of India’s General Election (I)

The stunning victory of the right-wing Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party [BJP] in the recently-concluded general election in India needs to be understood from three perspectives – first, the sheer dimensions of the victory; second, its meaning; and, third, what it portends for India’s political economy in the coming five-year period in terms of national policies...

European Killers Enjoy Fascist «Safari» in Ukraine

The self-defense forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic reported the elimination of two enemy’s block posts in the area of Donetsk in the first half of July. According to their Minister of Defense Igor Strelkov, one of them was defended by people in NATO combat fatigue who were foreign passport holders.  It’s not only the hired personnel of Western private military contractors who do their job by killing for money. There are also people who go to Ukraine to get pleasure and are ready to pay for it. Stan Patton, soldier of fortune, Blackwater, shares a quotation in his Twitter saying what the prices are: a shot of howitzers - $ 100 from the tank - $ 200, a shot in the village is priced at U.S. $ 350...
