Scoop News or What Triggers New UN Probe into Dag Hammarskjöld’s Death?

On December 31, 2014, the UN General Assembly approved by consensus a Resolution that requested Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to appoint an independent Panel of Experts to examine the new information that has emerged on the tragic death of former UN chief Dag Hammarskjöld. ... Dag Hjalmar Agne Carl Hammarskjöldwas Secretary-General of the United Nations from 10 April 1953 until 18 September 1961. The plane carrying the UN Secretary General was shot down over Ndola, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia) on the night of 17-18 September 1961. 16 men on board perished. In April 1962 a UN investigative panel said it was impossible to make definitive conclusions though the report contained enough facts to establish the truth. For instance, some states, including the United States and Great Britain, did their best to conceal it. ... There was enough proof gathered in 1961-1962 to make the conclusion that the Secretary General was killed. ... The previous investigative commissions successively ignored or downplayed the testimonyprovided by inconvenient witnesses. ...  Great Britain has already tried to distort the facts related to the complicity of South African, UK and US special services in the assassination of Hammarskjöld.

Where Europe Heads to? Harbingers of Political Storm

The daily routine has distracted the attention of ruling circles in Europe. They have failed to see in time the erosion of political order due to growing interference of EU supranational structures into the affairs of national states. The first warning was sounded during the May 2014 European Parliament election. Miscellaneous and sundry political parties united in their anti-EU drive received 30% of the votes. The Treaty of Lisbon was concluded in 2007 to replace the failed EU Constitutional Treaty. Since then it has become clear that the European integration is quite a reversible process...

The Flowers of American Democracy

There is a real variety of democracy being cultivated in the world, from the democracy growing wild in Somalia to the hothouse democracy in Sweden. But the most exotic democracy is being cultivated in the United States of America, where local breeders have learned to interbreed flowers of the law with weeds of violence... A US Senate task force has spent several years working on a report on CIA torture... The authorities decided to publish just 500 of the report’s 6000 pages so as not to shock the American public. However, even these 500 pages have caused human rights defenders to cry out: «Gentlemen, what are you doing? What is the CIA doing with Gestapo-like torture chambers?»...

Israel Relies on Neo-Nazis to Block Palestinian Legislation in Europe

Successive parliamentary votes throughout Europe to recognize the sovereignty of the State of Palestine have been opposed by a unique coalition of Zionist and neo-Nazi interests. While a seemingly odd alliance, the Zionists and neo-Nazis share a number of common interests, including their opposition to Muslim immigrants in Europe. Perhaps no one represents the Zionist-Nazi alliance more than Swedish Riksdag (Parliament) member Kent Ekeroth of the Sweden Democrats party...

Finland: NATO Membership – Dubious Goal

A major military exercise has kicked off in Latvia. The Sabre Strike war games involve 4,700 troops and 800 military vehicles. Russia sees NATO's military build-up in the vicinity of its borders as a sign of hostility. Not a member of the alliance, Finland is among the participants in the unfriendly action. While the debate has been simmering in for some time, Finland is encouraged to seriously consider full-fledged NATO membership by influential political circles and segments of social elite. The situation in Ukraine is used as a pretext for putting the issue to the fore. NATO membership could come up for debate before the 2015 parliamentary elections. The ongoing discussions may have prominent international implications...

Sweden Uses Ukraine to Heat Up NATO Entry Debate

...On April 22, Sweden's centre-right government coalition announced plans to increase military spending, with an emphasis on more fighter jets and submarines if the four parties win the September elections. If the coalition were to remain in power, it would aim to increase the military budget by five billion kronor ($760 million) annually, starting in 2015. The government said that spending would rise gradually until 2024, when the annual defense budget increase would be around 5.5 billion kronor (€604 million, US $835 million) greatly exceeding previous estimates. It cited the crisis in Ukraine as a reason to justify the burden... There is also a movement among high government officials to re-examine the long-running issue of joining NATO... By joining NATO Sweden will become a target of potential retaliatory strike and subject to the US influence to even greater extent, which is strong enough as it is...

Sweden: New NATO Member?

On December 5 NATO foreign ministers discussed the agenda for the upcoming summit in fall 2014, with particular focus on the development of NATO's partnerships with non-allied countries. ... 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…

NATO Steadfast Jazz Exercise – Chill of Cold War

Nordic States Security: Trends and Prospects (II)

 Leading Sweden and Finland into the embrace of NATO will make the nations targets of potential retaliatory strike while   compelling them to participate in unwanted wars. As one can see the policy is implemented against the will of common people who find good neighborly relations with everyone and sticking to traditional neutrality as the course that serves them best. They also realize Russia will not stand idle looking at further NATO expansion…

Reasons for Hryvnia’s Collapse

By the end of «black Wednesday», Feb. 25, the Ukrainian currency exchange rate went down to 33 hryvnias to the dollar and never bounced back.
