US’ Skewed Policy Priorities

The US State Department has maintained that continuity rather than change in the American policy is what should be expected in the aftermath of the killing of photojournalist James Foley by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria early this week. The State Department’s media briefings insisted that there has been an «ongoing policy initiative», an «ongoing effort» on the part of Washington  to meet the ISIL threat and «we will continue doing what we’re doing in Iraq.» So, on Wednesday, the US military took an additional 14 air strikes around the Mosul Dam...

Modi Rewrites India’s Tryst with Destiny (II)

The intellectual challenge today lies in reinterpreting the idea of non-alignment in tune with the spirit of our times, which is characterized by multipolarity in international politics, so as to meet India’s needs in the coming period as an emerging power. That is also what Jawaharlal Nehru would have expected Prime Minister Modi to do as his worthy successor presiding over India’s tryst with destiny at a crucial juncture in world politics. All things considered, therefore, India’s SCO membership would signify that the Modi government is charioting India toward a new world order where the country’s political and diplomatic options will multiply.

Modi Rewrites India’s Tryst with Destiny (I)

On the face of it, China has so far been reluctant about India's admission as a full member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization [SCO]. According to latest reports, however, this may be about to change. Beijing has had a profound rethink. Make no mistake, the tectonic plates of the geopolitics of a huge arc that comprises the Asia-Pacific, South and Central Asia and West Asia are dramatically shifting and that grating sound in the steppes will be heard far and wide – as far as North America.

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...

Looking Who Is Talking! MH17 and the US Role in Downing Passenger Airplanes

Approximately four months after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370) disappeared in March 2014, while en route from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur to the Chinese capital of Beijing, another incident took place with a Malaysian passenger plane. This time Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17), en route from the Dutch capital of Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was shot down on July 17, 2014 over the contested airspace of the breakaway Donetsk People’s Republic. The incident took place over Torez near the Russian-Ukrainian border while the authorities in Kiev were busy militarily assaulting the separatist armed forces of Novorossiya, that is the soldiers of the breakaway Donetsk People’s Republic and Donetsk’s sister-breakaway republic in East Ukraine, the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic...
