The Geopolitics behind the War in Yemen (I)

...The truth has been turned on its head about the war in Yemen. The war and ousting of President Abd-Rabbuh Manṣour Al-Hadi in Yemen are not the results of «Houthi coup» in Yemen. It is the opposite. Al-Hadi was ousted, because with Saudi and US support he tried to backtrack on the power sharing agreements he had made and return Yemen to authoritarian rule. The ousting of President Al-Hadi by the Houthis and their political allies was an unexpected reaction to the takeover Al-Hadi was planning with Washington and the House of Saudi...

Ankara - Riyadh: A Geopolitical Fault Line (II)

...Ankara is keeping a close eye on every step Saudi Arabia takes. Özcan Tikit, a columnist for the Turkish newspaper Habertürk, notes that «the Saudi leaders’ demands have raised concerns for Obama»... There is reason to believe that in the future the Turkish aspect of its foreign policy will be more meaningful for Washington than the Saudi element. Zbigniew Brzezinski was partial to that view in the late 1990s, noting that Ankara «stabilizes the Black Sea region, controls access from it to the Mediterranean Sea, balances Russia in the Caucasus, still offers an antidote to Muslim fundamentalism, and serves as the southern anchor for NATO»...

Ankara - Riyadh: A Geopolitical Fault Line (I)

...In some regional conflicts (primarily in Syria), Ankara and Riyadh are tactical allies, but since both countries aspire to regional leadership, the natural result is an intensification of their rivalry and discord. This process is accompanied by, on one hand, both countries’ attempts to win over the United States, and on the other, by the search for new allies, which can include Russia...

Another Phase of Ukraine’s Statehood Crisis: US Embassy Involved in Showdown between Tycoons

The Ukraine’s government is losing independence unable to stop the internal fight between the clans of tycoons. For instance, the current stand-off between Ukrainian big business tycoon Igor Kolomoisky, the governor of the Dnipropetrovsk Region (one of the most important regions of the country) and President Petro Poroshenko was stopped only after the US embassy directly interfered to support the head of state. Poroshenko would not dare launch an open attack against Kolomoisky or, all the more, fire him without Washington’s say so...

Hypocrisy Empire (IV)

The Middle East is a good example of Washington’s hypocrisy. The US-inspired «Arab Spring» hit the region like a sand storm resulting in hundreds of thousands of deaths... Nobody rushes to take on the responsibility for staging the recent great upheavals, though it’s easy enough to see who was behind those events - the National Security Council (NSC) chaired by President. Since August 2010 the NSC worked out a number of political directives signed by President to prompt the «democratization» of the region. The presidential policy directive (PPD) №11 was followed by PPD №13 to address the issue of «Political and Economic Reform in the Middle East and North Africa»...

General David Petraeus: Back into the National Spotlight

Another scandal is on the rise in the United States and David Petraeus, former CIA Director and four-star Army four General, is in focus again... It looked like his career was over, the reputation in the puritan America was damaged and he no longer had a chance to work for the government. Not that easy. General Petraeus can fight his final battle during the 2016 presidential race. Hillary Clinton is going to be the leading candidate to run on the Democratic ticket. As a Republican, David Petraeus has something to say about it...

«Merciful Angel» and Ukraine

Last December President Poroshenko submitted a bill to the parliament on ending the country's non-aligned status. The bill was voted into law, the status was abandoned. NATO membership was declared to be a national priority... Ukrainian social networks and media often mention Serbia’s plans to join the North Atlantic alliance when it comes to discussing the Ukraine-NATO relationship. On March 24, Serbia marks the 16th anniversary of NATO bombings. This is the time to remember what happened then. Perhaps these reminiscences will cool down the Ukraine’s enthusiasm towards the idea of «Euro Atlantic integration»...

The Neo-Con Attempt to Rewrite the History of World War II

After the fall of the Soviet Union, former U.S. president and one-time Cold Warrior Richard Nixon devoted the last few remaining years of his life to ensuring that Russia found its proper place in the international community. Nixon advised then-president Bill Clinton on the proper way to deal with the Russian Federation, the internationally-recognized successor state to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. One thing that Nixon would have never tolerated was the current neo-conservative penchant to deny Russia’s major role in World War II’s – known in Russia as the Great Patriotic War – victory of the Allies over Nazi Germany...

Intriguing Moments of EU Russian Policy

...The anti-Russian consensus in Europe formed after the Malaysian Boeing tragedy, when the plane was hit by someone who was pursuing a very definite goal, is waning and the European Union uses murky wording to cover it up. No matter all the declarations made by officials about European and transatlantic unity, media openly discusses the split on the issue of anti-Russia sanctions... It’s too early to say there a change in EU policy looming. But, definitely, there is a need to alter the course. It’s not just the economic interests of business dealing with Russia. It’s the fate of the European project itself...

Contest of Absurdity and Victory Day

All the proposals to mark the Victory Day in any other place but the capital of the Soviet Union/Russia – the leading victorious power in the main war of the 20th century - look like an absurdity contest... It’s always dangerous to mix things up - something being done by those who have started the discourse imposing lies about the «Russian aggression» before the celebration of the victory over fascist Germany. It will inevitably backlash against Europe. It knows what it is to foster Nazism. It did it once.

Liberation of Europe: Siege of Budapest

The Battle of Budapest (October 29, 1944 till February 13, 1945) was a great battle of WWII. The victory paved the way for liberation of Hungary, destruction of the Hitler’s coalition in Europe and blockade of German forces in the Balkans... The Soviet 2d and 3d Ukrainian Fronts were confronted by German Army Group South, part of Group Center and the army of Hungary, the last ally of Nazis in Europe... The Hungarian capital was encircled. Hitler ordered Obergruppenfuehrer-SS Karl Pfeffer-Wildenbruch to fight to the last. The storm started on December 26, 1944 to continue for the next two months. For comparison, Berlin was captured in two weeks...
