Turkey’s Foreign Military Bases and Their Threat to Stability

Rather than view with alarm Turkey’s announcement that it is building at least three military bases abroad, the United States and NATO have welcomed Ankara’s move as a contribution to stability. Nothing could be further from the truth. Turkey’s duplicitous fingerprints are all over support for terrorist groups like the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Jabhat al-Nusra, and Al-Qaeda in Syria and Iraq, Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Tunisia...

NATO: Who’s the Aggressor? (I)

There has been much discussion recently of NATO in the mainstream and alternate media. Why was NATO founded in the first place and why did it expand so rapidly after the collapse and dismemberment of the USSR in 1991. According to widely held views in the west, NATO originated as a defensive alliance against an aggressive, menacing Soviet Union after World War II...

Lessons of UNESCO

The decision by the 38th session of the UNESCO General Conference in Paris to reject Albania’s proposal that Kosovo be allowed to join that organization was the first truly landmark defeat for the self-proclaimed government of that region. Despite unprecedented diplomatic efforts by Pristina’s supporters on the eve of the vote, they failed to win a consensus even from the members of NATO and the European Union. Of the 95 votes needed, only 92 were cast in favor of Kosovo’s bid for membership...

As Syria Steals the Show, New Conflict Looms in Europe

November 21 marks the 20th anniversary of the Dayton peace agreement, which put an end to the bloody war between Serbs, Croats, and Bosniaks and created the contemporary state of Bosnia and Herzegovina. A lot of things point to the fact that this artificially created entity would not last long...

Germany Under Migration: Victims of Wars and Free Trade Challenge the Continent (I)

Coming from Vienna on our way to the Frankfurt book-fair, we had to cross the Austrian-German border. Border control was abolished since the treaty of Schengen (implemented in 1995) guarantees free movement within the territories of its member states. Only this time the highway was totally blocked. Cars and lorries queued up for 20 kilometres and more, nothing moved. Drivers came out of their cars, families started to use the highway as a playground. More than an hour passed before the queue started to move again slowly...

US, EU: Lost in Wishful Thinking

Hand of Moscow and West’s Balkan Policy

Russia’s international clout is growing. The country is adamant in its desire to counter the attempts of the United States and the European Union to impose on other nations political, ideological and cultural models that are detrimental to their national interests. It raises concern among Western politicians and media...

Bulgarian PM Borisov: Discipline Above All for EU and NATO Members

On July 23, Prime Minister Boyko Borisov opened the Foreign Minister's annual meeting with Bulgarian ambassadors abroad. The event made it appear that he was not a citizen of Bulgaria and had no interest in making the country prosperous. Looks like he has an implanted chip with a special program making him pursue foreign interests instead of serving his homeland...

UN Srebrenica Resolution Vetoed by Russia (Lending Helping Hand to Those in Need)

The Republika Srpska (RS), populated by Orthodox Christians, has recently come under growing pressure from the United States and the European Union frowning on the decision taken by the country’s President Milorad Dodik to hold a referendum on the authority of Bosnia's national court over ethnic Serbs in September. Now it looks like Dodik has started to look for a middle of the road solution. He said in Belgrade that Republika Srpska is willing to talk about the referendum on the Court and Prosecutor’s Office of Bosnia and Herzegovina if the reasons for holding it disappear...

Russia, Austria to Expand Gas Cooperation

Despite the European Commission’s stern warnings, Russia’s share of European energy market will grow in the coming years. According to Bloomberg’s experts, gas exports to Turkey and the EU have reached 162.6 billion cubic meters (5.7 trillion cubic feet) this year, up from about 159 billion in 2015 and 161.5 billion (then record high) in 2013...
