US Intelligence Agencies and the Argentine Season of Provocations

There is less than a year to go before the presidential elections in Argentina, scheduled to take place on 25 October. Cristina Fernández de Kirchner has twice won the battle for the highest government post, in 2007 and 2011, and so is unable to re-run for the presidency. The question of her successor is being discussed increasingly frequently in Argentina... According to political analysts, the attacks currently being launched against the Argentine president are part of an elaborate plan to ensure the rise to power of political forces loyal to the US and a radical change of policy... The staff at the US embassy in Argentina by way of the State Department, the Pentagon and the intelligence agencies is already full of professionals in terms of assessing Argentina’s status as «pre-crisis»...

Oil Prices and Energy Wars: The Empire of Frack versus Russia

Energy prices started to move downward in late-2014, when Saudi oil began to flood energy markets. Variations of two main schools about this emerged. One school explained things purely on the basis of business interests whereas the other school viewed the drop in oil prices geopolitically... Washington is responsible for the price drops in one way or another. Whether intentional or not, what should not be forgotten is that the last time prices fell dramatically was a few months before the global economic meltdown in 2007. Inadvertently or not, Washington’s push for sanctions could be leading to another international economic crisis.

War and Economic Terrorism: Diverging Voices. David Cameron vs. Cristina Fernandez

Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s recent speech at the UN was a breath of fresh air. She spoke about economic terrorism and the reasons why some people turn to violence and told the audience how a bankrupt Argentina managed to turn away from hard-line economic neoliberal orthodoxy and stimulate growth. She also discussed the need for multilateral approaches to solving the world’s problems as well as the need to regulate ‘vulture funds’ that cripple sovereign states’ ability to function...

Argentina Declared in Default – Warning to Ukraine

Actually Argentina has defaulted on its foreign debt. Such things happen in the contemporary world, the country has become a victim of financial vultures and the so-called legal imperialism of the United States... Argentina is the best illustration of how the legal imperialism works... On July 31 Ukraine’s Prime Minister Yatsenyuk made a loud-voiced statement. «The first major economic news today is that Argentina went into default», he told lawmakers. «And the second is that Ukraine didn’t default, and it never will». Perhaps he pins his hopes on the US sponsors. There is little ground to believe that Washington will grant billions (or even dozens of billions) to have the Ukraine’s debt restructured. Brussels will hardly lift a finger to help because the plight of the European Union is quite comparable with the debt problems faced by Ukraine...

70 Years Dividing Bretton Woods Conference and Fortaleza Decisions

This July the world marks the 70 years anniversary of Bretton Woods Conference, formally known as the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference... As 70 years since Bretton Woods have passed, a heavy blow was delivered against international financial institutions. The attack came from the resort city of Fortaleza in Brazil. Although the theme of the summit was “social inclusion”, at the top of the agenda is the creation of two new entities controlled entirely by the five BRICS members. The Bank is setup to foster greater financial and development cooperation among the five emerging markets. It would be headquartered in Shanghai, China and the first chief executive will come from India. The New Development Bank (NDB) will fund development projects independent of the US-controlled World Bank, and the Contingent Reserve Arrangement (CRA) will provide relief from the austere conditions and requirements of the IMF...

Way Back to Sky Blue Havana

Russian President Vladimir Putin began a six-day Latin American tour to coincide with the BRICS summit in Brasilia. The full agenda encompasses Cuba, Nicaragua, Argentina and Brazil... The President Putin’s tour started with the country which treats Russia with sympathy and love... The Russia’s President’s visit has a symbolic significance. Having gone through hard times in recent years the alliance between Russia and Cuba that emerged so may years ago after the victory of Cuban revolution has grown even stronger adapted to new historic realities... Russia plans to take part in developing the free trade zone in the port city of Mariel located in the vicinity of Havana. Health care and energy joint projects are on the rise. The military cooperation is also being intensified. Cubans know well how to handle the Russian systems...

China’s Presence in Latin America: Strategy of Gradual Squeezing US Out

The United States keeps on getting mired in the quagmire of Ukraine’s crisis. Meanwhile China is intensifying diplomatic efforts in Latin America. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has just wound up his Latin America trip. He has visited Cuba, Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil.  China’s top leader Xi Jinping is to tour the region in July... The US has lost its financial might struggling for world leadership and involved in overseas wars. To large extent China has taken its place...

Financial Vultures against Argentina

This year, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit accepted Argentina’s complaint for examination. At the end of August 2013, the court announced its own, possibly historical, decision revoking the right of a sovereign state to independently manage its own debt...

Latin America between China and the U.S.

The expansion of economic collaboration between China and Latin America is one of the most important international tendencies. The country most frequently named as a stable partner of the PRC on the continent is Venezuela... In 2010 Beijing signed contracts with Argentina regarding investments of 10 billion dollars in the transportation sector. In that same year the PRC concluded several agreements with Colombia on collaboration in the area of tourism. In 2011 an intergovernmental agreement was signed with Bolivia on collaboration in the space industry for a period of 5 years. In 2012 barriers were removed from the path of imports of food products from Chile to the PRC... Other countries which have spoken of the strategic importance of collaboration with Beijing include Cuba, Peru, Ecuador, Uruguay, Brazil, Costa Rica...

Under Electronic Surveillance of US Special Services

The CIA and the NSA (the US National Security Agency) whistleblower Edward Snowden (who temporarily had found refuge in Hong Kong and now is leaving elsewhere) has demonstrated once more the global reach of US electronic surveillance which, no doubt, is a kind of criminal activities. He looked really deep into what the NSA does and was terrified by the things he found out. So the man is on his way looking for a safe shelter to continue the revelations...

Financial Market Manipulation Is The New Trend: Can It Continue?

Governments and economists take their hats off to free markets.  Yet, the markets are rigged, not free. ... No country dependent on foreign capital is sovereign.  A country dependent on foreign capital, especially from enemies seeking to subvert the economy, is subject to destabilizing currency and economic swings.  Russia should self-finance. ...The greatest harm that is being done to the Russian economy is not due to sanctions and the US attack on the ruble.  The greatest harm is being done by Russia’s neoliberal economists. Neoliberal economics is not merely incorrect.  It is an ideology that fosters US economic imperialism. ... If Russia is to survive, Putin must protect Russia from Western economic institutions and Western trained economists.
