Modi, Putin and the World Order (II)

...Modi is not bogged down in ideology when it comes to India’s relations with the world community. He views the world order almost exclusively through the prism of India’s interests... Modi cannot be unaware of the ground rules of predatory capitalism. His cautious remarks to the media in Putin’s presence suggest that while he may not take recourse to a path of strategic defiance, on the other hand, he seems acutely conscious that abject surrender would only set the stage for further demands and the ultimate outcome would be detrimental to his government’s nationalist agenda and the protective system it promotes for India’s economic and cultural independence...

Congressional Foreign Policy Resolutions a Hint of Things to Come

In passing the so-called «Ukraine Freedom Support Act», the U.S. Congress has provided a hint of the foreign policy micro-managing in store for the Obama administration in its remaining two years in office. The Congress utilized every neo-conservative talking point and policy plank to include in the bill designed to punish Russia for the aftermath of the neocon-contrived fascist coup d’état in Kiev... Congressional action against Russia came at the same time the House and Senate passed a bill to punish current and former Venezuelan officials by denying Venezuelans visas and freezing their U.S. assets...

Hagel’s Resignation is Obama’s Defeat

...The November intermediate election was a Republicans’ big win. For the first time since 2006 the GOP gained control of both chambers... It may be an exaggeration but the November 4 vote was viewed as a referendum that Obama lost. This is an undisputed fact. Chuck Hagel has joined the ranks of those who have lost faith in Obama. His resignation is another defeat of Obama in Congress... The Democrats called the election results «a personal defeat of Obama». The Hillary Clinton’s aides told her to keep away from the incumbent President. It means other officials may follow Hagel and resign soon. The number of Obama supporters in the administration may dwindle to unusually low numbers.

Obama: A Placebo for Civil Liberties

Barack Obama has served as nothing more than a placebo for steadily-eroding civil liberties in the United States...  Obama was also billed as the first African-American president of «post-racial» America. Instead, Obama’s term in office has seen a return to the dark days of Jim Crow America where young black men and teens run a fairly good chance of being shot, choked, or tasered to death by white racist police officers... Obama engaged in «regime change» antics in Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, and other countries only to have frustrated African-Americans call for regime change in Ferguson, the state of Missouri, Cleveland, Detroit, Oakland, and cities across America. For America, «the Obama campaign slogan of «Hope and Change» has become a cruel joke with Obama laughing all the way to Wall Street and a cushy retirement while pocketing huge corporate donations to his Barack Obama Presidential Museum and Library.

Hagel’s Head Delivered to the Neocons on a Silver Platter

Former Nebraska Republican Senator Chuck Hagel had a tortuous path in becoming Secretary of Defense to succeed the consummate Democratic Party insider Leon Panetta in February 2013. Hagel, who had once referred to the political influence of the «Jewish Lobby» in Washington, faced an uphill confirmation battle in the U.S. Senate to win confirmation over the objections of erstwhile friends and political allies like Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham... Hagel was more in line with Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman General Martin Dempsey, who has argued that to defeat ISIL, the United States must reach at least a minimum accommodation with Damascus, as well as with Iran. At the time of Hagel’s resignation, there were credible reports that U.S. diplomats were preparing to return to Damascus to re-open the U.S. embassy. Such a development would serve as a slap in the faces of McCain and the neo-conservatives... The problem for Obama is that McCain as Senate Armed Service Committee chairman will constantly use the cable news networks to second-guess whoever becomes the next Defense Secretary...

Why Chuck Hagel’s Departure Really Matters

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s surprise resignation — reportedly at the strong urging of the White House — will dominate Beltway news in the coming days. But perhaps the much more significant foreign-policy news came early Saturday morning.

Tony Abbott: America’s Useful Idiot Down Under

After Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s unfulfilled threat to physically «shirt front» Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G-20 conference in Brisbane, Abbott did manage to undiplomatically insult the Russian head of state by telling him not to recreate the «lost glories of tsarism and the old Soviet Union»... Just before the G-20 conclave, Abbott was loudly booed by the public when he arrived at the Sydney Town Hall for the funeral of Australia’s last true Labor Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam. Abbott’s history as a provocateur for the United States and the Central Intelligence Agency is well-known to Australians who recall how the CIA engineered the ouster of Whitlam in a 1975 «constitutional coup»...

Pepe Escobar: Washington plays Russian roulette

These are bleak times. I've been in serious conversation with some deep sources and interlocutors - those who know but don't need to show off, privileging discretion. They are all deeply worried. This is what one of them, a New York strategic planner, sent me: The propaganda attack against Putin equating him with Hitler is so extreme that you have to think that the Russians cannot believe their ears and cannot trust the United States anymore under any circumstances.

Delusional US ‘Group Think’ on Syria, Ukraine

Neocon ideology appears to have seized near total control over the editorial pages of America’s premier news organizations, including the New York Times and the Washington Post, contributing to an information crisis inside “the world’s superpower,” a development that should unnerve both Americans and the world community.

The Berlin Wall Just Another Brick in The Wall

The 25 th anniversary marking the fall of the Berlin Wall was an occasion to propagandise the past simultaneously with the present. US President Barack Obama in reference to the defunct wall said that the crisis in Ukraine showed that «Europe’s freedom» was still unfinished business... German Chancellor Angela Merkel, speaking in the capital as hundreds of illuminated balloons rose into the night sky, said that the fall of the Berlin Wall was «an inspiration» for oppressed people everywhere, and she singled out Iraq, Syria and Ukraine for special mention... Obama and Merkel’s bracketing of the present conflict in Ukraine with the collapse of the Berlin Wall is obscene. It is a travesty of history and an odious attempt to conceal the very real crimes and cause of current conflict in Ukraine...

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...
