South African Sketches (IV)

The May 7 general election will make it clear who’ll rule the country for the next five years. As of May 1, 2014, the National Electoral Commission of South Africa registered 200 political parties, including 152 national and 48 provincial ones.  29 parties are taking part in the election... So, who’ll rule South Africa? It’s not an idle question. No matter in 2014 South Africa has ceased to be the leading African economy overtaken by Nigeria; it still is the leading power of the continent...

South African Sketches

Unexpectedly the events in Ukraine have become an indicator displaying the attitude of South Africans towards Russia. On the one hand, South African media outlets reprint the reports of Western information agencies depicting the life in Russia as doom and gloom without silver lining. On the other hand, some of them, especially the ones that support the government, try to fight this information tyranny... There are forces in South Africa which are ready to oppose the most massive anti-Russia campaign in many years; no matter the issue has little relation to the country. To understand why one should turn to history...

Limits of Globalization and BRICS Economic Cooperation

...The very coming into existence of BRICS (initially the triangle of Russia - India - China) goes back to the well-known event when then Russian Prime Minister Evgeny Primakov turned the plane around in 1999 as he was flying to the United States for a visit at the very time NATO started to bomb Yugoslavia. There was a feeling the time was right to set limits for globalization in politics (the way it was implemented by the West by the end of the XX century) as its economic aspects were coming under harsh criticism after the crises of 1997-1998...

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…

Russia to Develop Nuclear Energy in BRICS Countries

Recent news on Fukushima leaks once again sparks public concern about nuclear security. System failure of Fukushima’s reactor built by Westinghouse-Toshiba (US-Japan) did a lot of harm to the image of atomic industry as a safe and stable energy source. Russia on its part lays stress on disaster prevention and safety issues. Russia’s state company Rosatom is ready to offer innovative nuclear solutions to fellow BRICS countries...

BRICS: Prospects for Cooperation

Since the fifth and most recent BRICS summit, which took place in March 2013 in Durban, South Africa, the unified participation of the «fivesome» (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) in international affairs has become even more noticeable. And it is no exaggeration to say that Russia is playing the role of the conceptual leader of BRICS... The main event of the BRICS summit in South Africa was the politically-motivated decision to create a BRICS Development Bank... The idea of creating the BRICS Development Bank started from a simple fact: the West blocked the redistribution of votes (country quotas) in the IMF to reflect changes in the relative economic weight of certain states...

Israeli spy was central cog in nuclear weapons proliferation alliance

It is clear that during the middle of December of last year that the Obama White House had settled on former Nebraska Republican Senator Chuck Hagel to be the Secretary of Defense... The pro-Hagel circles needed a secret weapon to counteract the Israel supporters who would stress that Hagel was not supportive of the «special relationship» between the United States and Israel. There was no better way to demonstrate that Israel was no special ally of the United States but a longtime hostile intelligence threat to America by declassifying a large part of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Damage Report arising from the intense espionage carried out by one-time U.S. Naval Intelligence spy Jonathan Jay Pollard on behalf of Israel...

BRICS: Going Strong to Change the World Scene

The agreement to explore in greater detail the establishment of a BRICS Development Bank (South-South Bank) and an Infrastructure Investment Fund is an issue of special importance... An agreement to replace the US dollar by own currencies in mutual credit lines is a great achievement of the summit too. The member countries demonstrated a desire to reduce the risks associated with the current economic woes in the United States. Actually it means that BRICS countries are saying that the US economy is currently ineffective and prone to risks...

BRICS – The Basis of Multipolar World

...The new prospects emerging thanks to the BRICS international cooperation pattern may become an alternative to the Anglo-Saxon “global governance” model. It’s quite possible the new pattern may be a harbinger of reshape (if not the end) of the UN as well as the decline and inevitable restructurization of such international bodies as IMF, World Bank and WTO.

BRICS’ Rising Profile

9/11 Was NATO’s License to Expand Globally

The 9/11 attacks on the United States undoubtedly benefited a number of actors, including the American military-intelligence complex, Israel, and most definitely, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The Cold War-era, the area of responsibility for which had long been confined to Europe and North America, used the provisions of Article 5 of the NATO Charter – which states that an attack on one member is an attack on all – to extend NATO’s power deep into Eurasia, particularly in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Kyrgyzstan...
