NATO to Step on War Path: Back to Early 80s

NATO intensifies war preparations as the date of summit in Cardiff slated for September 4-5 is drawing near. Climate-controlled caves in Norway now house a new stock of Marine military gear and vehicles. On August 10, USS Dewayne T. Williams, a maritime prepositioning force ship, dropped anchor in Namdalseid, Norway’s Trøndelag region, to unload some 400 vehicles and 350 containers of equipment to be stored in Norwegian caves. The US Marine Corps has stashed weapons and equipment in the Norwegian countryside since the 1980s. Now the US military is updating its stockpile with M1A1 main battle tanks, tank retrievers, armored breaching vehicles, amphibious assault vehicles, expanded capacity vehicle gun trucks, and a few variants of 7½ ton trucks... It’s a good thing that there are voices within NATO calling for efforts to reach mutual understanding and start a constructive negotiation process instead of sabre rattling and economic warfare. There is also a hope for better days to come.

Nordic States Security (I)

 Sweden has come out with a proposal to build a joint Nordic Battalion Force (NBF) to make it part of the agenda for Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark... The force advocated by Sweden would operate as a separate force to the European Union’s Swedish-led Nordic Battle Group (NBG), made up of troops and equipment from Finland, Norway, Ireland, Estonia and Latvia. Unlike the NBF, which would be Nordic-specific, the larger NBG is assigned to the EU’s standby international mission forces. But taking into consideration the fact that the major EU parties are also NATO members, it easy to guess the both formations will inevitably add to NATO’s capabilities too…

Norwegian Gas and Russian Gas Exports to Europe

At the end of February this year, Norway's Energy Ministry published information on hydrocarbon reserves in light of geological survey data obtained in an area which came under Norwegian jurisdiction under an agreement with Russia in 2010. The information confirmed speculation by experts regarding the presence of high-grade deposits: Norwegians estimate that the volume of their new resources is 31 percent higher than previously calculated, 85 percent of which is natural gas and the rest – oil. What are the implications of this for Russian gas exports to Europe, including to Germany?..

Stress test for manageable order destruction

Terrorist attacks cannot be senseless. Compared to diversions or acts of revenge, they always have something more to accomplish in addition to the death of innocent people – some political goals... The way how thoroughly Breivik had been preparing for the attacks gives food for thought... His flawless 'operation' makes me doubt that he worked alone... However, some facts allow us to make quite a detailed analysis of what has happened...

New Composition of UN Security Council, Prospects for 2015

On October 16 the United Nations General Assembly elected a new United Nations Security Council (UNSC). According to UN Charter, there are fifteen Council members - five permanent with 10 others elected. Half of non-permanent members are re-elected every year. Non-permanent members have no veto right but still possess considerable clout, especially when they join together. First, the United Nations Security Council is the main UN organ responsible for peace and international security. It can approve the use of force. Recently there were cases when non-permanent members hindered the passing of draft resolutions submitted by permanent UNSC members...
