President Obama Faces Iraqi Conundrum

Obama has nothing to be proud of when it comes to his Middle East policy. One failure after another everywhere you look, it starts to get really eerie. With Libya, Egypt, Syria failures behind, Iraq adds to the list. The US has always sided with those who started unrest while Saudi Arabia was pouring fuel of fire pursuing the dream of using terrorists as a tool for turning the Arab world into the Wahhabi safe haven. The Wahhabi formations used the US support while operating in Syria. Now they are back to Iraq to capture a major part of the territory. As Dick Cheney admitted the United States gave the Middle East away to terrorists who can do as they please and impose their ways on others to the heart’s content…

What African State is Another Target for US Military Intervention?

The US has temporarily moved nearly 200 Marines to Sicily from their base in Spain. This is a precautionary step to bolster the ability to respond to a crisis in Africa... «We're doing this as a contingency because we believe that the security situation in North Africa is deteriorating to a point where there could be threats», said Colonel Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman... In 2013 alone, AFRICOM conducted joint exercises with fourteen African nations, leading land, sea, and air-based operations carrying out a total of 546 «military activities» which is an average of one and half military missions a day... All over Africa, the United States has tried to check the growing influence of China. It’s easy to see what’s driving the US policy on the continent. Remembering Bill Clinton «It's the economy, stupid». The planned military interventions are part of larger geopolitical game...

Ukraine: Arab Spring Comes Along with Breath of Plagues

Some time ago Washington started to plan a string of «color revolutions» to facilitate the world division into two free trade zones – Transatlantic and Transpacific. The aim was to expand the world periphery under its control. As far back as in 2007 the US plans to reshape the maps of North Africa and the Middle East leaked into media... Somewhere it panned out as planned like in Libya and Tunisia, for instance. In other places healthy elements of society consolidated in the times of need to turn the process back, like it was in Egypt. In other cases a country was plunged into a bloody drawn-out conflict as a result of rebellion, the example is Syria... Vitali Klitschko, the leader of UDAR political party, has recently addressed the Euromaidan filled by protesters. He made no bones about it saying Victor Yanukovych may follow the fate of Gaddafi...

France Makes Virtue out of Vice to Exploit Central Africa Chaos

Where Francois Hollande looks weak and beleaguered on the national stage, registering as the most unpopular French president ever, his fortunes seem to rise abroad with a strident interventionist foreign policy. We saw that in September when the French president unseated the British as America’s «special friend» by declaring his country’s readiness to join Washington in a military assault on Syria... This French activist tendency on foreign matters was on display again over the recent P5+1 nuclear negotiations with Iran... France’s old colonial stomping ground in Africa is also providing the Hollande government with a convenient counterfoil to domestic woes...

Libya on Brink of Collapse: US, Allies Step Up Emergency Measures

...An increase in crime in Libya, a destroyed economy and the lack of political control over different tribes makes Libya worse off than 2 years ago... The chances are great that step by step the US and its European allies may get embroiled in the quagmire of anarchy and chaos in an effort to make Libya remain a pro-Western state in the volatile region. The «no boots on the ground» policy may fail as «some boots» are already there while others happen to operate on Libyan soil off and on. It’s extremely hard to predict anything about the Middle East, but the task to improve things in Libya is a tall order, a real high mountain to climb. The West is paying for its own mistakes it had been warned about stepping on the same rake in Libya after the lessons it failed to learn in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Asia Pivot Declared, US Army Eyes Africa

U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to Africa in June-July was widely seen as evidence of the White House's broader foreign policy objectives which have included an expansion of U.S. military operations across Africa. With the forces leaving Afghanistan, the Army is looking for new missions around the world. « As we reduce the rotational requirement to combat areas, we can use these forces to great effect in Africa », Gen. David M. Rodriguez, the head of the Africa Command, told Congress this year…

SOF Becoming Important Element of US Foreign Policy

While the incumbent US administration has sought to extract itself from large scale conflicts like Iraq or Afghanistan, it has invested heavily in the special operations forces (SOF) to strike "high-value targets". It has the message to convey: "We will find you and get you, however long it takes." But many countries view it as a global superpower throwing its military weight around and acting outside the law to pursue its own purposes…

US Plan for Syria: Islamist Government without Chemical Weapons

There is no evidence so far for an American master plan. But a possible logic behind Washington’s drawback on bombing Syria need not be good news...Washington seems to be condemned to live with Islamist allies...Radical Islamic, jihadist groups in government may not be the best choice for Obama, but when America disposes them from chemical military capacities, their future reign in Syria will no more represent a danger for the USA – and for Israel. Seen under this aspect, US stepping back from a military strike for the moment does not aim at a peaceful solution, at good relations to Russia, or at giving up the plan for a regime change. On the contrary: Regime change could become less risky for Washington…

Aggression Against Libya: Looking at Past and Outlook for Future (II)

In Libya the so-called rebels committed mass crimes and atrocities. These findings are confirmed by the UN Independent Commissionof Inquiryon Libya... Everything that we saw in Libya is being repeated in Syria. The report by the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic  adduces testimony to gross violations of international humanitarian law by the rebels, no matter the report tries to vindicate their actions...The use of chemical weapons by rebels proves the fact that they are guilty of mass atrocities punishable by international law. The United States and other states which provide assistance to them are to be held accountable for these activities in accordance with international law...

Aggression Against Libya: Looking at Past and Outlook for Future (I)

The threat of US aggression against Syria remains imminent. It is highly propitious to go back again to the legal assessment of NATO and the United Nations leadership actions at the time of operation against Libya. The armed conflict in Libya and the following intervention of NATO in March-October 2011 against the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, the same way as the armed conflict in Syria, made move to the fore a string of important legal aspects related to the very essence of contemporary international law…

US ‘Joke’ Intel Belies Knowledge of Real Culprits in Downed Jet

Seriously, is that it? US national intelligence presented its «evidence» this week on the shoot-down of the Malaysian airliner over Ukraine. Anyone waiting to see a «smoking gun» implicating Russia and pro-Russian militia in eastern Ukraine in the disaster should have been left underwhelmed by the supposed American «killer evidence». Less smoking gun and more like one of those circus pistols that pop out a joke flag emblazoned with the word «Bang!»... So, on one hand, Russia is implicated, while on the other hand «there is no direct link»...  It seems incredible that the US does not have any images of what really happened on that horrific Thursday afternoon. Unless of course, the US is deliberately suppressing that information  to suit a preordained narrative, aimed precisely at trying to implicate Russia over the disaster...
