Two Steps Forward One Step Back (II)

...China also would have taken note that Modi draws inspiration from Asian nationalism and this ideological tilt means that under his leadership India would adopt a genuinely independent foreign policy by abandoning the «pro-Western» outlook of the previous UPA government led by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh... The bottom line is that the US is a power in decline and it is hopelessly distrcated in several theatres with insufficient energy or resources to push a highly challenging strategy such as its pivot to Asia. Modi sees that China's rise, Russia's re-emergence and the growing multipolarity in the world order as compelling realities of the contemporary world situation.

Obama Resets the ‘Pivot’ to Asia (I)

The dust has settled down sooner than one would have thought on the US President Barack Obama’s 4-nation Asia tour, and the inevitable stocktaking is well under way. Obama earmarked an entire week for the trip to Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines. Without doubt, it was a major statement of the Obama administration’s strategic foreign-policy reorientation. But that statement is already lending itself to varying interpretations... The salience of the tour came to be that China didn’t figure in Obama’s itinerary and this is at a time when Beijing has locked horns with America’s key allies in the East and South Asia Seas...

Brunei is America’s East Pacific Cash Cow and Military Base

...Although Obama always enjoys visiting Indonesia, the country of his childhood, it was the cancellation of Obama’s planned trip to the oil-rich Sultanate of Brunei that not only prevented Obama from being hosted by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, one of the world’s wealthiest men, but prevented him from cementing ties with a nation that enjoys a special relationship with the United States, particularly the Department of Defense and the Central Intelligence Agency...

U.S. Eyes Rare Earth Elements under the Pacific

With the scramble for rare earth elements in the Pacific now underway, it was no coincidence that the U.S. Navy recently deployed the USS Freedom, the first prototype littoral combat ship, on its maiden voyage across the South Pacific to Singapore, a burgeoning U.S. naval base in the region that is seeing as much U.S. naval activity as the former U.S. naval base at Subic Bay in the Philippines...

The Great Game syndromes in Bay of Bengal

Quite obviously, the US’ pressure tactics toward Pakistan, Sri Lanka or Bangladesh (and even Myanmar) in the most recent years failed to work. Therefore, it is highly improbable that any of the South Asian countries will cooperate with the US’ containment strategy toward China (or Russia). Suffice to say, the advantage goes to China and Russia if they are interested in a «pivot» to South Asia...

NATO turns into IOTO as it spread to the East

With the prodding of the United States, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) appears to be making another long-leap to the east. Already extending its influence in the Mediterranean and North Africa through the Mediterranean Dialogue and the Middle East through the Istanbul Cooperation Initiative, NATO now looks set to extend its North Atlantic Charter well into the Indian Ocean. The «North Atlantic» Treaty Organization may one day be expanded to be called NATO- «IOTO», or the NATO - Indian Ocean Treaty Organization...

Imperialism for a cash-strapped era: US can afford only half-a-cold war – Part II

The “color revolution” will continue to be the preferred route for the United States in effecting regime change in Central Asia. But the limits to the United States’s capacity to intervene also cannot but be noted. As a perceptive observer recently noted, the US is a “renter rather than a bona-fide landlord of Eurasian property” – and a renter can always be evicted by the landlord. Second, the Central Asian countries cannot but find odious the violent regime changes in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya and wouldn’t want to go through similar experience. Most important, both Russia and China are following active regional policies with regard to the Central Asian countries, which give the latter much space to withstand US pressures...

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...
