Can Greece Escape from a Situation Comparable to Dark Age? Yes, If Greece Realigns with Russia and Gains Financing from the BRICS

With only 37% of the vote, does Syriza have the clout to stand up for Greece against the looters? Can Greece escape from a situation comparable to the European Dark Ages when populations were ravaged by marauding raiders? Perhaps if Greece realigns with Russia and gains financing from BRICS.

Greece: Meaningful Economic Reforms Could Come Through BRICS and Russia?

The sounds of champagne decorking and exuberant cheers among Syriza volunteers, supportive voters, and their struggling-but-comfortable socialist middle-class base within the intelligentsia and literati, could be heard across Athens’ cafes in the clean areas of town. Election results were finalized this evening in Greece, with a clear Syriza victory.

2014’s Watershed Events

History will mark 2014 as the year of shifting global alliances and the beginning of the end of America’s self-styled unipolar dominance under the rubric of the «New American Century»... The consolidation of the BRICS economic alliance of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa as a bulwark against the traditional but expanding dominance of the United States and Western Europe over international financial structures gained steam during the past year... The consolidation of power by the U.S.- and European Union-backed Ukrainian putschist government in Kiev resulted in aggression against Russian speakers in Crimea, eastern Ukraine, and the Odessa region... The manipulated drop in world oil prices, coupled with the sanctions, represented a wilful declaration of economic war on Russia by the West... Based on the advent of a totally Republican (and neo-con)-controlled U.S. Congress, 2015 will see Obama increasing his adventurism abroad. The world will react to American neo-imperialism by continuing to realign political, economic, and military blocs. Rather than NATO expanding, the possible fall from power of conservative governments in Greece, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom may see a number of NATO members distancing themselves from the Cold War anachronism.

The Year US-led Capitalism Became Exposed as Root of Global Conflict

Historians may look back on 2014 as a defining watershed in geopolitical events, the year when the limit of American power was exposed as a waning entity and the contemporary root of global conflict... This year saw Russia and China cement strategic trade and energy partnerships that promise, through legitimate means, to deal a death blow to the decrepit American dollar as the world’s reserve currency... In sum, this was the year that the Washington-Brussels axis was seen as a spent global force. Regime change agendas in the Middle East and Ukraine have led the world into even deeper crisis... A century ago, the powers-that-be could get away with reckless warmongering because their monopoly control of information and propaganda was unassailable. In a new age of global communications and ever-rising alternative channels of information, the tendency of conflict inherent in Western powers may still be a danger – but it is being exposed for all to see. In the year ahead the battle for truth, justice and peace is very much on… and winnable...

The Internationalisation of the Yuan (II)

...The reserve currency issuing countries have balance of payments deficits. It means that a reserve currency is a trap. Back in the early 1960s Belgian-American economist Robert Triffin said there is a fundamental incompatibility between the attainment of US global economic stability and having a single national currency perform the role of the world’s reserve currency... The dollar started to function as a real reserve currency only when the United States foreign trade deficit became stable...

Another Suspicious Plane Crash in Latin America Bolsters American and Globalist Interests

Brazil’s scheduled October presidential election was seen as a virtual cake walk for incumbent President Dilma Rousseff. That was until a plane crash killed Rousseff’s rather lackluster opponent, economist and former governor of Pernambuco, Eduardo Campos. On August 13, it was reported that the plane carrying Campos, a Brazilian pro-business centrist presidential candidate who was running third behind the more conservative Social Democratic Party candidate Aecio Neves, an economist and champion of austerity, crashed into a residential area of Santos in Sao Paulo state, Brazil...

Habitation and a name for India in the BRICS (II)

India would have important choices to make in the period ahead even as BRICS’ political profile gets etched in ever-sharper terms. There is no denying the fact that the BRICS’ New Development Bank presents itself as an alternative to the US-dominated global financial institutions... BRICS is destined to be a unique asset for Indian diplomacy. Even today’s detractors are bound to appreciate at some point that BRICS has great value for an impatient leader like Modi who is bent on creating new momentum for India’s national policies.

Habitation and a name for India in the BRICS (I)

If the annual BRICS summit meeting, which just ended in Fortaleza, Brazil, assumed an unprecedented level of interest in India, three reasons could be attributed to it... it is possible to say that the Modi government decided to inherit the BRICS brief from the Manmohan Singh government and has not felt the need to tamper with it – at least, not yet. This becomes yet another template of the continuity that can be expected in the Indian foreign policies under the leadership of Modi...

BRICS against Dollar Dominance or the US as Global Stronghold of Evil

...Has any such problem been solved by the United States during, say, the recent 25 years? Devastated countries, thousands dead, hundreds of assassinated politicians and military leaders who have not met the standards of the US-style democracy which is the only one that is genuine, is it not the egregious irresponsibility? Normal people are scared by the US strong desire to create Pax Americana on the ruins of other, more ancient and in a way, more perfect civilizations? It is rejected even by the closest allies of the empire. Reasonable leaders watch with concern the irrevocable of the United States turning into the global center of evil.

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...

Liberation of Europe: Siege of Budapest

The Battle of Budapest (October 29, 1944 till February 13, 1945) was a great battle of WWII. The victory paved the way for liberation of Hungary, destruction of the Hitler’s coalition in Europe and blockade of German forces in the Balkans... The Soviet 2d and 3d Ukrainian Fronts were confronted by German Army Group South, part of Group Center and the army of Hungary, the last ally of Nazis in Europe... The Hungarian capital was encircled. Hitler ordered Obergruppenfuehrer-SS Karl Pfeffer-Wildenbruch to fight to the last. The storm started on December 26, 1944 to continue for the next two months. For comparison, Berlin was captured in two weeks...
