Papal Fallacy on EU Immigration Crisis

Pope Francis weighed into politics last week when he castigated the European Union for being a «haggard bureaucracy» and «indifferent» to the needs of its citizens and workers. Another key point of his address to the European Parliament in Strasbourg was that the EU bloc was failing in its humanitarian «response» to the immigration crisis engulfing the continent. But the pope would have been more to the point if he had condemned the EU for creating this crisis in the first place...

Libya Then and Now: An Overview of NATO’s Handiwork

In 2011, as the entire world watched the Arab Spring in amazement, the US and its allies, predominantly  working under the banner of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), militarily overran the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya.

Libya War Continues Three Years After Gaddafi Assassination

On Oct. 20, 2011, the leader of the North African state of Libya was brutally assassinated in the city of Sirte. Col. Muammar Gaddafi had been leading a struggle to defend his country from a war of regime-change coordinated and financed by the United States and NATO.  Since the overthrow of the Jamahiriya system of government in Libya, the social conditions prevailing inside the country are by no means stable. Various factions, most of which were utilized as ground troops in the Pentagon-NATO aerial war between March 19 and Oct. 31 of 2011, remained locked in a mortal conflict for control over the oil-rich state.

Libyan BUK Missile Unit May Have Been Used by AQIM to Down Algerian Passenger Plane

After the U.S.-supported ouster of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi in 2011, Libyan jihadist rebels swarmed through Libyan army weapons depots and helped themselves to Soviet-made portable shoulder-launched missiles and launchers, BUK missile batteries capable of bringing down aircraft flying over 30,000 feet, and other military equipment, including mortars and rocket-propelled grenades. Some of the Libyan equipment ended up in the hands of Saharan-based insurgent groups such as Al Qaeda in the Maghreb (AQIM) and the Mali-based Ansar Dine. There is a real possibility that anti-aircraft weapons that fell into the hands of U.S.-supported Libyan guerrillas and were subsequently transferred to Saharan-based rebels were used to attack Air Algerie 5017...

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.

Ending the Cold War on Cuba? From the Freezer to the Chiller

As US President Barack Obama announced his surprise «historic» bid to normalise relations with Cuba this week, the New York Times swooned with glowing news. ‘US to Restore Full Relations With Cuba, Erasing a Last Trace of Cold War Hostility’ was how its top headline put it. Welcoming the development, the American «newspaper of record» said Obama vowed to «cut loose the shackles of the past» and to «sweep aside one of the last vestiges of the Cold War». But, purple prose aside, the hard detail is that the ongoing illegal American embargo on Cuba will stay in place. Moreover, the move comes as Washington slaps on more sanctions against Russia and unleashes new sanctions on Venezuela...
