From Bahrain to Ukraine: Hail the Western Salesmen of Subversion and Deception

...The protests in Kiev have evidently been driven by a determined minority, using violent and organized subversion, and calling for the overthrow of the elected authorities.  This is not the exercise of international human rights, as in Bahrain; in the case of the Ukraine, it is a call to sedition. Furthermore, the agitating groups in the Ukraine, such as the Fatherland Party and the neo-fascist Freedom Party, are known to have well-established logistical links to foreign agencies that are committed to fomenting regime change in targeted nations. These agencies include the American CIA and the benign-sounding National Endowment for Democracy. Certainly, the methodical tactics of disruption deployed recently against government buildings in Kiev strongly imply a covert military input...

US Announces «Significant Changes» for Military Policy (I)

On November 5 in the keynote address before the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ (CSIS) Global Security Forum US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the Pentagon needs to make significant changes «across every aspect» of the defense enterprise. He identified six focus areas that will guide a major Department of Defense (DoD) reform effort...

Everyday Life of Superpower or What US Needs Syria for?

According to World Bank expert Eric Schwaitzern, a wave of city bankruptcies is expected to hit the United States in the next three years possibly triggering sovereign default. Today over 450 US cities are on the verge of going broke, including Los Angeles, San Diego and others. The «ghost city» Detroit started «the parade of defaults» that may be expedited in October to last all year long... Washington appears to get ready for emergency. Richard Preston, leader of the Confederate White Knights of KKK, called on Americans to get together in a civil war against Barack Obama and his supporters and do it in October, when the country marks the 150th anniversary of Gettysburg...

Americans Unconvinced Intervention in Syria is Right Thing to Do

President Barack Obama is waging a hard battle to acquire support at home for a military action against Syria. On Wednesday, September 4, the US Senate key panel - the Committee on Foreign Relations - has okeyed the use of military force in Syria. The measure was endorsed by 10-7 votes... Rep. Tom Reed on September 3 announced his opposition to U.S. military strikes on Syria, saying such attacks could lead to a dangerous escalation of violence in the Middle East... An anti-interventionist wing in the Senate led by Rand Paul remains a substantial challenge for the White House...

Egypt’s Coup Churns up Regional Politics (II)

It has now come to light that none other than the US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel was in touch with Sissi from Washington... That is to say, the famous ultimatum given by the Egyptian army on Monday to Morsi had actually followed consultations between Hagel and Sissi... In the final analysis, though, Israel is the regional power most affected by the changes in Egypt. The return of the military leadership in Cairo works in Israel’s security interests. The Egyptian state will be looking inward for the foreseeable future, groping for a new identity, which is fraught with all sorts of uncertainties. Put differently, the nascent regional alignment of Egypt-Qatar-Turkey, which Hamas leadership began tapping into lately, has overnight disintegrated and that leaves the militant group vulnerable to Israeli pressure...

US Boosts Middle East Alliance

...The US is obviously on the way to significantly boost the military capabilities of the Middle East allies. The new policy under the conditions of economic hardships is to compensate the reduction of the military presence by increasing the allies’ capabilities. It’s enough to have a cursory look at the military aid package offered by Mr. Hagel to understand the US is arming these states before attacking Iran and Syria. With US presence dwindled the regional arms race is spurred, the security risks are up and the goal of global domination is very much alive in US foreign policy thinking...

US Military Faces Major Overhaul

On April 3, newly assigned U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel delivered his first major policy address calling for a fundamental overhaul of the nation’s military structure. In scope and significance it’s comparable to fundamental organizational changes implemented under the 1980s Goldwater-Nichols Act... Hagel suggested the national defense strategy outlined in January 2012, which included the Asia Pivot and less emphasis on the prospect of Iraq-style stability operations, would likely remain intact, but fulfilled with potentially fewer resources...

Are Israel's fears about Chuck Hagel justified?

Shortly before his inauguration, President Obama nominated Republican Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense, showing his ability to make unexpected decisions to the surprise of many. Some are even worried - especially in Israel... Hagel was reminded about his refusal to sign a letter in support of Israel, his refusal to support action against the meeting between U.S. President George W. Bush with Yasser Arafat, and accusing Israel of aggression against the Lebanese people (in 2006), for his refusal to support the demand to recognize "Hezbollah" as a terrorist organization, his speeches in opposition to the inclusion of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization, and against Iranian sanctions...

Obama’s choice of Hagel as US defence secretary

Hagel is an extraordinary person for the US president to walk with at this point in America’s trajectory as the world’s lone superpower with a military spending that outstrips the rest of the world added up... Hagel is someone who opposed the Iraq war and in fact he went on to seek an investigation over the reasons given by the George W. Bush administration to justify the 2003 invasion. He is someone who questioned the ‘surge’ in Afghanistan and drew parallels with Vietnam and who is a strong critic of economic sanctions in general. And, by the way, he favors talks with Hamas...

9/11 Was NATO’s License to Expand Globally

The 9/11 attacks on the United States undoubtedly benefited a number of actors, including the American military-intelligence complex, Israel, and most definitely, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The Cold War-era, the area of responsibility for which had long been confined to Europe and North America, used the provisions of Article 5 of the NATO Charter – which states that an attack on one member is an attack on all – to extend NATO’s power deep into Eurasia, particularly in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Kyrgyzstan...
