Rethinking the cost of Western intervention in Ukraine

Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, recently cautioned Americans against intervention fatigue: “I think there is too much of ‘Oh, look, this is what intervention has wrought’ . . . one has to be careful about overdrawing lessons.” Say what? Given the calamities wrought in Iraq, Libya and now Ukraine, one would think that a fundamental rethinking and learning of lessons is long overdue. The United States needs a sober look at the actual costs of supposed good intentions divorced from realism.

Putting Differences Aside to Face Common Threat

On November 19, the United Nations Security Council issued a 2,730-word presidential statement on the growing terror threat focusing on the Islamic State... and al-Qaeda affiliates... True, with its ideas of the Pan-Caliphate and the export of the terrorist war onto other countries’ territories, including the U.S. and Russia, the IS has become a global problem for the world to face... The sanctions war between Russia and the West triggered by the Ukrainian crisis is what puts at stake the global counter-terror efforts. It creates a lose-lose situation. There is no method in the madness of fighting the common threat on parallel independent tracks...

Will Ankara Continue Its Gas Games behind Baku’s Back?

...If Ankara continues its game behind Baku’s back, forcing Azerbaijan to make concessions on gas contracts previously entered into, then Azerbaijan has an alternative. Two days before Erdogan’s visit to Ashgabat, the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan announced the resumption of gas exports to Russia in 2015, which were suspended for technical reasons in August 2013. By strengthening its ties with Moscow, Baku will be able to successfully withstand increasing pressure from Turkey on the issue of gas.

PCR interviewed by Russia and Italy

I recently had the chance to interview Paul Craig Roberts. I remember briefly, for the uninitiated, that Dr. Roberts was a senior official of the US government, economic advisor to the President during the first term of Ronald Reagan. It is to him the creation of Reaganomics, the economic policy initiated by Reagan to revive the US economy, then stagnant. Dr. Roberts was also a member of a secret committee of control over the CIA, set up to verify the information provided by US intelligence on the continuation of the Cold War with the Soviet Union. He has still now a profound understanding of the mechanisms of power in Washington and he’s distinguished for his political analysis, often discordant compared with that of the official mainstream.

Europe Veering From US Abyss Over Russia?

It’s long overdue but better late than never that Europe might just be back-pedalling on America’s aggressive agenda towards Russia. The business-like visit to Moscow this week by Germany’s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier suggests that Europe can come to its senses to seek a diplomatic resolution of the escalating tensions over the Ukraine crisis... The new EU foreign policy chief Frederica Morgherini, formerly the Italian minister, has recently expressed misgivings about the effectiveness of sanctions. Morgherini took over from Britain’s Catherine Ashton who was instrumental in the Western regime-change operation in Kiev and who had displayed a pathetic servility to Washington. Other European states are also increasingly finding a more critical voice towards what they see as senseless and self-defeating hostility against Russia...

US and Europe Conceal Their Bankruptcy with Hostility to Russia

...Worldwide, the economic outlook is grim, according to even the pro-Western International Monetary Fund’s latest assessment. So, you would think that top of the agenda for the G20 summit last weekend should be how governments are coordinating recovery efforts to get people back into work, relaunch economies with massive public investment, boost social welfare to mitigate rising poverty, and rebalance the explosion of inequality between capital and labour. No. Obama and European leaders sought instead to shift the focus from economics to «security» and in particular to add more international pressure on Russia over the Ukraine crisis...

Cameron the Euro Demagogue Creates Own Nightmare

November, the month associated with Halloween and spooky forces, appears to be presenting British Prime Minister David Cameron with a nightmare that could end up resulting in his head rolling as leader of the Conservative Party... With only months to go before the British General Election, Cameron’s coalition government is coming apart at the seams. At the root of Cameron’s fears is the meteoric rise of the far-right UK Independence Party. Fervently anti-immigration and anti-European Union, the UKIP is stealing voters away from the centre-right Conservatives...

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...

Viktor Orban Threatened by Maidan-Style Protest Movement

...The Hungarian prime minister’s independence, including with regard to Russia, has long irritated both Brussels and Washington. Viktor Orban’s statements regarding his intention of finding allies in Europe capable of opposing the introduction of new sanctions against Russia together have not gone unnoticed. Western capitals have been particularly outraged by the fact that on 4 November 2014, the Hungarian parliament passed a law allowing the construction of the South Stream pipeline to take place in Hungary, despite the position of the European Commission...

It’s Up to Germans to Decide if They Need War in Europe

The geopolitical project of creating independent Ukraine in order to destroy the Russian statehood was not a brainchild of US strategists. The idea belonged to German ideologists. No need to fall prey to illusions, it should be understood that the people who take foreign policy decisions in Berlin today are hardly ready for a compromise with Russia on Ukraine... Czar Alexander III probably had a reason to turn to the wall the picture of German Emperor, who was his uncle, while calling Iron Chancellor Otto von Bismarck «ober-swine». No matter that, the great German politician cared about the fate of his people. That’s what a wise foreign policy is about. Germans themselves should decide if they want a war in Europe. They should think about it and not forget that the United States pursues its own goals...
