Revisiting The Russia & G7 Divorce: How Moscow Came Out On Top

"The G7 made the politically charged decision to suspend Russia’s membership following the country’s reunification with Crimea at the end of March 2014. At the time, many media outlets treated this news as being bound to have some sort of sensational consequence for Russia, but they were only partly right. It definitely was a consequential event for the country, but not at all in the manner that they had expected. Instead of bringing about the doom and gloom scenario of an economic collapse, it actually freed Russia up to rapidly accelerate its geo-economic diversification and lay the foundation for entirely new economic fundamental."

Hypocrisy reigns supreme in the West

The European Union has hypocritically extended sanctions on Russia and the Russian autonomous Republic of Crimea in support of the politically- and economically-failed state of Ukraine. At the same time, the EU has threatened the sovereignty of Greece for failing to adhere to confiscatory and usurious financial policies set by the banking gnomes of Frankfurt and London, the same bankers that are propping up a corrupt government in Kiev. Nothing spells hypocrisy more than what is taking place in Europe at the direction of the «Eurocrats» of Brussels, their military centurions in NATO, and their overall puppet masters in Washington...

West Changes Policy Towards Russia

The West has taken practical steps to punish Russia for its independent foreign policy with corresponding changes to be inserted into its strategy. The research works of London-based Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, normally reflect the general trends in evolution of thinking in Anglo-Saxon world and beyond. Two former ambassadors to Russia - Sir Roderic Lyne and Sir Andrew Wood - cooperate with the Institute as associate fellows...

G7: Currencies to Protect, Countries to Bomb

The members of the G7 just ended their 41st summit. The leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and US gathered in a great Bavarian palace, the Schloss Elmau. It was a fitting location for the masters of the universe.

It’s Time to Kill the Feel-Good Myth of Sanctions

 the Group of Seven conference over the weekend, U.S. President Barack Obama scored a victory in shoring up the G-7’s fragile consensus for continuing sanctions to punish Russia for its shenanigans in Ukraine. The agreement, which stipulates that the sanctions will continues until Moscow decides to respect Ukraine’s autonomy and the terms of a cease-fire accord are fully enacted, offers a temporary shot-in-the-arm for a policy approach that looks increasingly infirm. For though the impulse to isolate countries economically and diplomatically in order to punish errant deeds and impel better behavior — it has become a cornerstone of U.S. policy on Russia, Syria, Iran, North Korea, and elsewhere — is nothing new, it has taken on added importance in this era of hesitancy toward foreign military intervention. As the fraught G-7 deliberations over extending sanctions on Russia shows, isolation now goes against the grain of a globalized world; it’s hard to implement effectively and even harder to sustain over time. If it is to remain a useful diplomatic tool, policymakers need to adapt to its increasing limitations.

G-7 has its own designs on South China Sea

The G-7 leaders issued a communique at the close of their summit at Adolf Hitler’s favorite Bavarian retreat of Garmisch-Partenkirchen that vilified China for its claims to islands in the energy-rich South China Sea. The G-7 leaders stated, «We strongly oppose the use of intimidation, coercion or force, as well as any unilateral actions that seek to change the status quo, such as large-scale land reclamation.» What the G-7 leaders failed to mention is that four members of the elite group, the United States, Britain, France, and Japan, have used proxies like the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Taiwan and the former Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam) to fortify island possessions in the South China Sea. The G-7 statement was yet another display of the gross hypocrisy of the group as previously evidenced by their sanctions against Russia, Syria, Iran, and other countries...

American dreaming, from G1 to Bilderberg

What’s the connection between the G7 summit in Germany, President Putin’s visit to Italy, the Bilderberg club meeting in Austria, and the TTIP – the US-EU free trade deal – negotiations in Washington?

G7 In Pursuit of Certain Goals

The 41st G7 summit was held in Schloss Elmau, Krün, Bavaria, Germany on June 7–8. It ended without producing any important results just as hospitable Chancellor Angela Merkel had predicted before. Much ado ‘bout nothing? Actually, there was a lot of ado raised. German newspapers emphasized how important it was to demonstrate the unity of Western democracies holding the meeting without Russia. Did they manage to do it? Who did they sent the message to? Russian President Putin? Did the G7 leaders and the EU leadership really believe that they could punish Putin? If an invitation had been sent, would he have accepted it under the circumstances? Was it kind of an attempt to call him on the carpet? A fancy so ridiculous! They have no leg to stand on lecturing Putin as the last year’s G20 summit proved. He left Australia before time as soon as the agenda had been practically exhausted...

Slave Descendant? Don’t Call Me Dave!

British Prime Minister David Cameron had some stiff upper-lip advice for Jamaicans while on an official visit this week to the Caribbean state. He was urged to make a formal apology for Britain’s historic role in the transatlantic slave trade and to consider monetary reparations for the descendants of African slaves, who account for the vast majority of Jamaica’s population...
