NATO’s Achilles’s Heel: Secession

It is clear that secessionist movements are the Achilles’s Heel of NATO. And they exist where NATO least expects them. There are increased calls for autonomy, secession, and outright independence in regions that host important NATO intelligence-gathering bases and sit astride NATO sea lanes. For example, the Cornish Mebyon Kernow movement has taken inspiration from the strength of the Scottish National Party to call for a Cornish parliament... Mec Vannin favors independence for the Isle of Man, located in the Irish Sea between Britain and Ireland. Celtic nationalism not only poses a problem for NATO in Britain, but Celtic nationalist movements in Brittany in France, where France maintains a naval base at Brest, and in Galicia in Spain, provide potential «soft power» salients against NATO in its own backyard...

A Game of Scottish Solitaire for Europe (II)

...Various anti-crisis programs are being prepared in different parts of Europe. Until now the leaders of the Veneto self-determination movement have been sounding conciliatory enough. They wish to retain the euro while others call for leaving the eurozone and go back to national currencies. Marin Le Pen, the head of French National Front, is convinced that her country has to return the national currency, something possessed by 95% of the countries in the world as the circulation of euro makes thousands of enterprises go bankrupt... The economic problems faced by the European Union and the growth of separatist trends in Europe are two sides of the same coin.

A Game of Scotch Solitaire for Europe (I)

«Whenever you fall, pick something up» advises a Scottish proverb. That’s a fairly good description of the current state of separatist movements in Europe. Various nooks and crannies of the Old World eagerly followed September’s referendum on self-determination in Scotland. Now many are trying to absorb and apply the methods used by Scottish separatists in order to advance their own interests - just like the Scots, themselves, post-referendum. The deepest reverberations from the events in Scotland were felt in Catalonia where new political skirmishes are rocking a nation already beset by a severe socio-economic crisis...

Scotland Kicks off Process of Europe’s Fragmentation

The Scottish referendum results show that something is rotten in the state of the United Kingdom. The event has given an impetus to the separatist aspirations in Ulster, Wales and the Island of Maine and even in the tin-rich Cornwall County believed to be the homeland of legendary king Arthur. The idea of getting more preferences from London without offering anything in return has become popular. The referendum has changed Scotland. The turnout was great with people of all walks of life and ages going to polls... In Europe separatists are gaining strength in Catalonia, Flandria (Belgium), Corsica (France), Northern Italy and Bavaria (Germany). They construe the referendum results as a victory of independent Scotland because it has asserted its right to self-determination...

Catalonia to Continue Press For Independence Referendum

The Resurgence of European Separatism

A 1.5-million-person demonstration in Barcelona in support of Catalonian independence and the fact that the Catalonian parliament is controlled by two separatist parties are the most noticeable signs of the new blossoming of separatism in Europe. Earlier, in October 2012, British Prime Minister Cameron and First Minister of Scotland Salmond signed an agreement on the holding of a referendum in 2014 on the independence of this part of the United Kingdom. At the same time, the Flemish separatists from the New Flemish Alliance won the local elections in Belgium. Nationalists have also come to power in the Basque Country in Spain. The examples cited are only the tip of the enormous separatist iceberg of Europe...

Crisis An Instrument in Building the Euroempire

...If another austerity package is adopted, the country would fall apart and downtown Madrid would be left alone to repay the sovereign debt... The carefully engineered and fueled debt crisis, coupled to Brussels' regionalization policies, not only causes nation-statehoods in Europe to crumble but, from a wider perspective, undermines national sovereignty and statehood as general principles.

Netanyahu’s Speech in Washington: The Breaking of a Taboo is Now Permitted

...After Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu conspired with Republican U.S. House Speaker John Boehner for the Israeli prime minister to give an address to a joint session of Congress, his third -- a distinction that Netanyahu shares only with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill -- and without the knowledge of the Obama administration, all gloves are off. Never before in the history of the United States has a foreign leader been invited to denounce a sitting American president from the same pulpit where the American president delivers the traditional State of the Union address...
