What is Implied by Weimar Format of Talks on Ukraine?

...It strikes an eye that the United States started to change rhetoric on Ukraine. Before the US advanced its goals at the talks along with the promises to grant new loans. Now it has changed – Kiev is told it won’t be given money anymore. Senator Benjamin Cardin, the Chairman of the U.S. Helsinki Commission, said at the Commission’s session devoted to the fight against corruption that the United States will help Ukraine but provide no money for fraud schemes. This is an intriguing scenario. What will Kiev do under the circumstances? On the one hand, Kiev depends on Washington and has little wiggle room. On the other hand, the Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk groups have cemented their positions and established firm control over the corruption flows during the nine months that have passed since the coup d’état. It’s not that easy to shake their positions...

Hagel’s Head Delivered to the Neocons on a Silver Platter

Former Nebraska Republican Senator Chuck Hagel had a tortuous path in becoming Secretary of Defense to succeed the consummate Democratic Party insider Leon Panetta in February 2013. Hagel, who had once referred to the political influence of the «Jewish Lobby» in Washington, faced an uphill confirmation battle in the U.S. Senate to win confirmation over the objections of erstwhile friends and political allies like Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham... Hagel was more in line with Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman General Martin Dempsey, who has argued that to defeat ISIL, the United States must reach at least a minimum accommodation with Damascus, as well as with Iran. At the time of Hagel’s resignation, there were credible reports that U.S. diplomats were preparing to return to Damascus to re-open the U.S. embassy. Such a development would serve as a slap in the faces of McCain and the neo-conservatives... The problem for Obama is that McCain as Senate Armed Service Committee chairman will constantly use the cable news networks to second-guess whoever becomes the next Defense Secretary...

Ukraine and US Parallel Power

Barack Obama has so far failed to declare an «all-out war» that Poroshenko wants so much, but part of Washington’s establishment has started to create a mechanism of «parallel power» led by ambitious Joe Biden and his team.  Anthony Blinken has the reputation of someone close to Biden. The same way one can call him a member of the Clintons’ retinue. The official likes to state the fact that he comes from a Jewish family of immigrants who have escaped from Communist regime. He is known as a staunch supporter of Israel. It brings him close to the political circles centered on the Nuland-Kagan families...

On the Pentagon’s Biological Laboratories in Ukraine

...In ten years, the number of American laboratories engaged in developing ways to protect against bioterrorism, according to the official version, has grown from 20 to 400. Secret biological centres have appeared in Africa and Latin and America, biological laboratories of unknown function have opened in Ukraine and Georgia, and it is also planned to open a biological centre in Kazakhstan in 2015. The majority of these activities are being supervised by the Pentagon... In Ukraine in 2013 alone, biolaboratories were opened in Vinnytsia, Ternopil, Uzhhorod, Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, Simferopol, Kherson, Lviv (three laboratories at once in this town!) and Lugansk with the support of the US. Today, the Pentagon’s biolaboratories are gathered around Russia in a semicircle...

Will Ankara Continue Its Gas Games behind Baku’s Back?

...If Ankara continues its game behind Baku’s back, forcing Azerbaijan to make concessions on gas contracts previously entered into, then Azerbaijan has an alternative. Two days before Erdogan’s visit to Ashgabat, the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan announced the resumption of gas exports to Russia in 2015, which were suspended for technical reasons in August 2013. By strengthening its ties with Moscow, Baku will be able to successfully withstand increasing pressure from Turkey on the issue of gas.

CIA Assassination Furthered Dutch Neo-Colonialism

It has been the policy of the Barack Obama administration to oppose the granting of independence by European colonial powers to any more territories in the Caribbean. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte told the leaders and people of six Dutch territories in the Caribbean in July 2013 that the Netherlands was prepared to grant independence to the islands but that the United States was adamantly against the idea... But how far has the Obama administration and the freewheeling Central Intelligence Agency gone in order to prevent any newly-independent nations in the Caribbean? Some suggest that under its thuggish director, John O. Brennan, the CIA engaged in political assassination to help drive home its point...

The Wolves of Wall Street Will Not Feed the American Sheep

On Nov. 12 the Financial Times, reported that regulators in the UK, US, and Switzerland have fined the five biggest international banks a total of $3.2 billion for manipulating foreign-exchange rates... The banks’ currency traders agreed to fix exchange rates on the world market in order to boost their own profits. This was no small-potatoes scam - as much as $5.4 trillion changes hands every day on the Forex market... Steen Jakobsen, chief economist of Saxo Bank, claims that never before has there been such a huge gap between economic reality and perception, but «the world is not ending, it’s getting ready for a new beginning ...»

A North Korean Trio’s Quick Spurt down South

...Until Washington turns away from a paradigm based on regime change in the DPRK as soon as possible and at any cost, the door leading toward an improved relationship between the two Koreas will quickly begin to close.  And yet it is the Koreans themselves who will have the last word in determining the fate of their divided people...

Nuclear Security and President Obama

Russia skipped preparatory meetings informing that it no longer planned to participate in the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit... Russia is the only state in possession of nuclear capability comparable to that of the United States. Its participation is crucial for the success of efforts to enhance nuclear security. By refusing to take part in the 2016 event to be held in the United States Russia strikes a telling blow against Washington. What prompted it to do so? The problem has two aspects – one is generally of political nature while the other is related to nuclear security...

Weapons and Manpower for a Color Revolution in Venezuela

Reports surface in the Latin American media with alarming regularity about seizures by law-enforcement agencies of large shipments of US-made weapons. Such events are becoming noticeably more frequent in Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Argentina - countries that the Obama administration considers unfriendly. But most often, news of the discovery of arms caches comes from Venezuela...
