Libyan BUK Missile Unit May Have Been Used by AQIM to Down Algerian Passenger Plane

After the U.S.-supported ouster of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi in 2011, Libyan jihadist rebels swarmed through Libyan army weapons depots and helped themselves to Soviet-made portable shoulder-launched missiles and launchers, BUK missile batteries capable of bringing down aircraft flying over 30,000 feet, and other military equipment, including mortars and rocket-propelled grenades. Some of the Libyan equipment ended up in the hands of Saharan-based insurgent groups such as Al Qaeda in the Maghreb (AQIM) and the Mali-based Ansar Dine. There is a real possibility that anti-aircraft weapons that fell into the hands of U.S.-supported Libyan guerrillas and were subsequently transferred to Saharan-based rebels were used to attack Air Algerie 5017...

Unrest in Turkey: Broader Outlook

...In the context of the Arab Spring little attention has been devoted to a large and populous regional power. Algeria has remained largely unaffected by the Arab Spring having a history of civil war behind. The government tries to prevent challenges to domestic and regional stability. It supported the Gaddafi regime, opposed NATO intervention and never recognized the Libyan new transitional government. The leaders of Algeria were perspicacious enough to see the events in Libya would create instability in the Maghreb and the Sahel, the fears vindicated by subsequent events...

Obama’s Military Presence in Niger: Uranium Control and Tuareg Suppression

President Obama’s military incursion into Niger, ostensibly to establish a drone base to counter «Al Qaeda» and other Islamist guerrilla activity in neighboring Mali, has little to do with counter-insurgency and everything to do with establishing U.S. control over Niger’s uranium and other natural resources output and suppressing its native Tuareg population from seeking autonomy with their kin in northern Mali and Algeria. The new drone base is initially located in the capital of Niamey and will later be moved to a forward operating location expected to be located in Agadez in the heart of Tuareg Niger...

EU Autumn Marathon

...The reasons for the growing solidarity in the Washington - Brussels – London triangle, seems to be associated with a growing schism within the EU of the Anglo-Saxon and Franco-German camps. Primarily the catalyst for the split is a dispute about the way out of the financial and economic crisis. Speaking in geopolitical terms, it is a struggle in the concept of the "strong" and "weak" in Europe...

«Arab Spring» is Arab Socialism’s Fall

The fall of autocratic regimes in the Arab Middle East and North Africa, which had more to do with skyrocketing unemployment and inflation than in a desire to «democratize,» gave the circling vultures of Western «pro-democracy» think tanks and foundations the opportunity to put stakes in the hearts of governing pan-Arab socialist political parties long seen as a threat to the goals of «uber-capitalist» globalization. The Ba’ath socialist party of Saddam Hussein in Iraq was the first victim of a desire by the global forces of extreme capitalism to re-make the Middle East’s financial, demographic, political, and social construct... Now, history is repeating itself in Syria where another faction of the Ba’ath Party has been in power for decades. Syria is the birthplace of Ba’athist socialism...

India’s passage through Central Asian steppes needs rethink

The steppes of Central Asia give away their secrets only grudgingly. The deserving ones have to convincingly show their capacity for persistence and tenacity – and, of course, sheer audacity. That was how Genghis Khan succeeded in conquering Bukhara...
