America’s Barbaric Logic of Hiroshima 70 Years On

Even if we accept that there was a plausible military imperative to drop the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki – to bring about a swift defeat of Japan and thus an end to the Pacific War – the horror of civilian death toll from those two no-warning aerial attacks places a disturbing question over the supposed ends justifying the means...

70-th Anniversary of «The Bomb's» Use Against Civilians

It has been 70 years since the United States became the only nation in history that deployed two atomic «weapons of mass destruction» against civilian populations. On August 6, 1945, a B-29 known as the Enola Gay took off from Tinian island, north of Guam. After flying six hours to the main Japanese island of Honshu, pilot Paul Tibbets flew his aircraft over the city of Hiroshima released «Little Boy», an atomic bomb with the explosive power of 16 kilotons of TNT...

Skipping Victory Day in Moscow West Unwillingly Made Russia and China Get Much Closer

The news that Western leaders skipped the Victory Day celebrations in Moscow on May 9 hit the radar screen. Chinese leader Xi Jinping was at the top of the guest list. Did they pull a boner? It has become the most frequently asked question in the United States and Europe... Claire de Morsier of French Le Temps wrote that ignoring the Moscow festivities was tactless and even dangerous... In its comments on the presence of Chinese President Xi Jinping at the military parade Newsweek wrote that it was the event «some analysts have described as a "Nixon Goes to China" moment in reverse»... There is ground for coming to this kind of conclusions. The West does its best to confirm the fact. Educated people in the West have heard at least something about the role of the Soviet Union. But they know nothing about the China’s contribution into the Second World War...

Merkel’s Uber-Hypocrisy to Japan over War Past… and Present

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s reprimand last week to Japanese leaders to “face up to their wartime past” had an ironic twist that went scarcely noticed. The irony is that it is the German leader who actually stands accused of not facing up to her country’s wartime past. More sinisterly, her historical denial is manifested in actual present-day war-making in Ukraine, and it is furthering a dynamic that could lead to an all-out war with Russia because of baseless Western demonisation of Moscow. A demonisation that Merkel’s Germany is playing no small role in...

China Stalks Obama in Asian Tour (II)

Behind the platitudes of regional peace, stability and cooperation, the United States is pursuing a complicated agenda to counter and court China at the same time. The dual track is predicated on the one hand on the importance of China’s unique role in the US’ economic recovery and its potential roles in regional and international conflicts and on the other hand on the extreme disquiet over China’s rise. Interestingly, Obama’s itinerary comprises countries that are located in a strategic sea lane that is crucial to preventing China from becoming the dominant military and economic power in Asia...

Obama Looks to Ease Japan-China tensions (I)

From a Chinese perspective, the United States President Barack Obama’s 3-day state visit to Japan on Wednesday was the high point of his current tour to Asia, which was to take him to South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines as well... The developments in Ukraine cast their shadows on the Sino-American relationship. China would be keenly assessing whether the emergent preoccupations in the Euro-Atlantic space would diminish the US’s capacity to give ballast to its rebalance strategy in the Asia-Pacific – and if so, how the US’ regional allies adjust themselves to the new reality...

Joe Biden Wraps-up Asia-Pacific Trip: Rebalancing Policy Going Strong (I)

Mideast conflicts, Snowden revelations and domestic woes, the U.S. remains true to its course of being a dominant Asia-Pacific power committed to increasing America's influence in the region as a hedge against the increasingly assertive China... Recently the US diplomatic activities in the region are on the rise. This includes the October visits by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and State Secretary John Kerry, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew visiting the region last month, the just wrapped-up Biden’s trip, as well as the Obama’s planned visit in April. Tensions in the region are at their highest in years...
