Pushing Ukraine to the Brink

Everything. It reveals the commercial interests that drive US policy. Just as the War in Afghanistan was largely fought to facilitate the transfer of natural gas from Turkmenistan to the Arabian Sea, so too, Washington engineered the bloody coup in Kiev to cut off energy supplies from Russia to Europe to facilitate the US pivot to Asia.

US Withdrawal from Afghanistan not to be Peaceful

The killing of 4 NATO troops in Afghanistan on Tuesday shows that the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan is not to be peaceful, said an analyst. A blast in eastern Afghanistan killed four NATO soldiers, two Afghan policemen and ten civilians. The Taliban has claimed the responsibility for the attack through a text message sent to Reuters. A spokeswoman for the Czech general staff has confirmed that the dead troopers were all Czech.

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...

NATO Leaving Afghanistan: Have Transit Routes Going Through Russia Become Redundant?

The battles raging in Ukraine, Syria and other politically sensitive parts of the globe are making the NATO transit facility at Ulyanovsk a sidelined issue fading in comparison with other hot topics. Two years ago the idea evoked hot discussions before the facility came into operation. The issue has almost died away as other events distracted attention. The transit center appears to be an example of Russia-NATO cooperation. Now NATO Secretary General openly says Russia is «rather an adversary than a partner». It calls for having a brief look at the recent history...

Militarism vs. Diplomacy: The Case of NATO

The point I wish to make clearly is that there is a divide within government groups between militaristic voices and diplomatic voices, particularly between NATO’s orientation toward force and a diplomatic orientation. This divide doesn’t mean that the governments of NATO’s member countries cannot and do not try to use NATO militarily for their own narrow interests, as they have in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Libya. It means that the militaristic orientation of NATO sets it against a diplomatic orientation when conflicts, real or imagined, arise. It means that NATO looks much more trigger-happy than is consistent with peaceful diplomatic resolutions of differences or with a policy of non-intervention. NATO is a much more dangerous organization than it is generally perceived to be.

NATO, Russia: Arms or Diplomacy Choice (I)

NATO must have a sustained presence in countries that feel «vulnerable» to Russia, US President Barack Obama said on March 26 at a meeting with EU leaders in Brussels... The NATO allies snapped to attention, clicked heels and said «Yes, sir». On April 1-2, 2014 foreign ministers met for the first time since Crimea joined Russia. NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Russia's actions meant there could be no «business as usual»... As the Guardian reported, a confidential seven-page paper leaked to the German news weekly Der Spiegel proposed joint exercises and training between the alliance and the three countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan and Moldova) to enhance the «interoperability» of their militaries with NATO and expand their participation in NATO «smart defence» operations.

US Drones to Deploy in Central Asia

On February 16 the Los Angeles Times reported that the Obama administration is making contingency plans to use air bases in Central Asia to conduct drone missile attacks in northwest Pakistan in case the White House is forced to withdraw all U.S. forces from Afghanistan at the end of this year without having an agreement of the status of forces... The implementation of United States plans to deploy drones in Central Asia will expand the US military presence in the region and create conditions for conducting secret operations using unmanned aerial vehicles while negatively affecting the regional balance of forces.

Georgia’s NATO Membership: Dreams and Reality

...The United States needs Georgia not as a military ally but rather as a country providing important routes, including pipelines. For America Georgia is not a country with its own culture and established traditions but rather a transit zone and a rear bridgehead for a military action against Iran. And it is not accidental that the US provides much money for military airports in Vaziani, Marneuli and near the port of Batumi...

US Torpedoes Karzai’s Contacts with Taliban

...Washington doesn’t want any substantive «Afghan-led», «Afghan-controlled» peace talks except under its auspices. Most important, it does not want any serious dealings with the Taliban to take place before Karzai retired and a proxy has been put in power in Kabul who would duly put his signature on the dotted line on the US-Afghan Bilateral Security Agreement, formalizing the establishment of the US-NATO military bases in Afghanistan...

Can Afghan Army do it alone with US and NATO Forces Gone?

...The Afghan security forces lack clear understanding what they are defending and who they are fighting against... As a whole the United States and NATO pinned their hopes on finding solutions to a number of questions before the troops pull out. Mainly the solutions are still to be found. Soon we’ll see if Afghanistan is able to maintain stability in the country on its own – the Taliban has promised to undermine the plans to hold a presidential election in April 2014...

Israel Is Stealing and Murdering Its Way Through Palestine

Since the 1940s Zionists have been stealing Palestine from the Palestinians. The majority of Palestinians have been removed from their homes and their country. They exist in refugee camps in other countries and 1.5 million are concentrated in the Gaza Ghetto... Israel is always the aggressor but always take the role of the victim. Palestinian women and children are all subhumans - ”snakes” as one Israeli politician put it--who sneak into Israel through secret tunnels (whose existence is akin to Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction) wearing suicide bomb belts and blow up innocent Israelis along with themselves... To stop this slaughter of innocent Israelis, Israel has to blow up Palestinian hospitals, schools, and civilian homes and apartment blocks...
