Ankara - Riyadh: A Geopolitical Fault Line (II)

...Ankara is keeping a close eye on every step Saudi Arabia takes. Özcan Tikit, a columnist for the Turkish newspaper Habertürk, notes that «the Saudi leaders’ demands have raised concerns for Obama»... There is reason to believe that in the future the Turkish aspect of its foreign policy will be more meaningful for Washington than the Saudi element. Zbigniew Brzezinski was partial to that view in the late 1990s, noting that Ankara «stabilizes the Black Sea region, controls access from it to the Mediterranean Sea, balances Russia in the Caucasus, still offers an antidote to Muslim fundamentalism, and serves as the southern anchor for NATO»...

The U.S. Congressional Declaration of War against Russia

The sixteen-page anti-Russian House Resolution 758, which was recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives in an overwhelming vote, is a recipe for active U.S. military and intelligence operations against Russia. Former U.S. Representative and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, the former congressman wrote that the House resolution mirrored the neoconservative-formulated 1998 Iraq Liberation Act, which was ultimately used by the George W. Bush administration to launch the U.S. attack against Saddam Hussein’s government. Out of 435 members of the House, only 10 voted against what amounted to virtual authorization for offensive operations against the Russian Federation...

In the Heat of Battle against Islamic State

...According to some reports, the US plans to strike the Syrian oil infrastructure captured by Islamists to prevent illegal export bringing in up to $2 million daily. Any unbiased person can see that the strikes will be aimed at Syria’s economic potential. The US Middle East policy remains the same. The US intends to continue fighting the Islamic State but it refuses to join forces with Iran and Syria no matter they face the same enemy. The regime change in Damascus is still on the agenda of US administration which considers the Is-lamic State to be a force to be used for this purpose...

Russia’s Parity Policy in the South Caucasus and Azerbaijan’s Eurasian Prospects

The attention of outside forces to the largest South Caucasus republic is growing steadily, with the US, the European Union and Russia all seeking to win over Azerbaijan. Events in Ukraine and the creation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EaEU) have raised the stakes in the game codenamed «winning the sympathy of Baku». Among the noted players targeting Azerbaijan, the US is the least consistent, and the political elite in the Caspian republic continue to regard its American partners with suspicion...

Why Richard Morningstar Is Threatening Azerbaijan with a Maidan

Several days ago Richard Morningstar, the U.S. Ambassador in Baku, made a statement in an interview with the Azerbaijani office of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty of a sort which diplomats do not usually dare to make. The American suggested that one of the lessons Baku should learn from the events in Ukraine is that the Maidan could repeat itself in Azerbaijan... The American diplomat's statement regarding the possibility of an «Azerbaijani Maidan» should be considered together with the previous speech of James Warlick, the U.S. Co-Chair of the Minsk Group on the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The speech took place May 7 at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington. The ideas expressed by Warlick - and he unambiguously suggested retuning the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict to the situation at the end of the 1980s - was received very frostily in Yerevan...

US Pushes Georgia into NATO: MAP is Option Again

...On his recent visit to Washington on February 25 Georgian Prime Minister Garibashvili got the assurances that his country will get a MAP at NATO September 2014 session in Cardiff, Wales, in case Crimea votes for joining the Russian Federation at the March 16 referendum... Russia still maintains a military presence within the breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and regards NATO advancement as an immediate threat. Giving MAP to Georgia means constant confrontation with Russia adamant to stay firm asserting its foreign policy interests and ready to rebuff any attempts to intimidate or exert pressure on it...

Who Benefits from Terror Plague? The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Terrorism came into being as soon as humanity appeared, but the US special services turned it into a threat of global scale. The end of the 1970s can be considered as the starting point. Back then the Central Intelligence Agency launched a training program for  «Islamic brigades» to entangle the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic into the war in Afghanistan... The war on terror declared by the United States on September 11 only made international terrorist groups stronger and even made them come to power in some countries. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria became victims of US anti-terror fight... Today Al-Nusra Front, an Al Qaeda affiliated armed group, formally listed as a terrorist organization by US State Department, is a United States leading partner in Syria. No surprise the White House policy evoked protest among US military making Congress bombarded with e-mail protests «Obama, I will not deploy to fight for your al-Qaida rebels in Syria»...

Syria – Step on Way to Caucasus

An intervention in Syria is to inevitably spread on the whole Middle East – it’s a prelude for an offensive launched by Islamists against the southern part of Russia. If the interventionists succeed in overthrowing Bashar Assad, then Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Georgia will join the United States in the game called «Syria - Step on Way to Caucasus». The Veterans Today has recently published an article by Gordon Duff, an American investigative journalist, saying the chemical weapons used in Syria by anti-government militants were transported from the US central referral laboratory of social healthcare situated in Alexeyevka near the Georgian capital Tbilisi. It was supplied by American controlled Turkish experts...

Georgia’s North Caucasus Policy: continuity with tactical adjustments?

...The situation regarding the outgoing Georgian president at the moment is, at the very least, unenviable. However, this far from means that Georgia’s focus on export instability in Russia’s North Caucasus will not be in demand once again. Moreover, the traditional channels and mechanisms for such exports could be improved in view of both the positions that have already been won and new organisational, technological and psycho-emotional developments...

The Transatlantic Partnership and the Monetary Sovereignty of Europe

On 20 April, the ninth round of negotiations between US and EU representatives on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) began in New York. Officials on both sides of the Atlantic are referring to the figure of $100 billion as the main argument in favour of the agreement. Apparently, this is the amount that the combined GDP of the US and the 28 EU member countries will increase by. So far, nobody has given any clear explanations as to where this estimate has come from... A European not well-versed in politics does not yet understand what to expect from the TTIP...
