Devoted to Anniversary of Great War

The world is marking the 100th anniversary of WWI. As the events unfold in different parts of the planet from Ukraine to Nigeria, from the Middle East to the South-China Sea, those days should be remembered today. The lessons the history taught us are to still to be learnt. Today's world bears a number of striking similarities with the build-up to the First World War. As the WWII approached an average European felt the clouds gather over his head, the ideological contradictions got exacerbated to the utmost, international trade was chained by multiple tariffs, levies and other barriers. But a hundred years ago globalization, no matter this term was not used back then, appeared to be overwhelming, just like today...

Theresa May Raises an Old and Discredited Canard

British Home Secretary Theresa May, who has found herself in the middle of a huge pedophilia cover-up scandal involving top leaders of her Conservative Party, has found time to raise an old canard: the death by radiation poisoning of international ne’er-do-well and former Soviet and Russian intelligence agent Alexander Litvinenko... It is clear that May is conveniently using the downing of Malaysian Airlines 17 in eastern Ukraine to turn up pressure on Russia...

Old Europe Going Decay

...The Ukrainian market got narrowed down for Europeans. The trend is to continue. Now what does the European Union get having signed the association agreement? The answer is hanging in the air.  This is kind of corrosion of European mentality. What’s good for the United States and Great Britain does not necessarily meet the interests of other EU members. Can they not understand it? Is it senility? I have pity for the old Granma Europe. Whatever it is, there is still a chance.  The undermining by Washington of peaceful efforts exerted by France and Germany in Ukraine, the spying rows when the US special services tapped the phones and e-mails of top European Union officials and leaders of European states, the recent revelation of US spying activities in Germany – all told, these factors raise great doubts the about the faithfulness of Anglo-Saxons to the idea of «Atlantic partnership»...

A Crisis of Faith within the European Union

The two-day EU summit in late June was marked by growing disagreements among members of that organization. Even the signing of the economic sections of EU association agreements with Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova could not conceal this fact. It is entirely possible that by the time these documents take effect, the EU itself will have changed enormously, prompting a radically different approach toward, for example, the admission of many Balkan states...

Mr Hague, How about Ending the Rape of Whole Countries?

A four-day summit entitled ‘End Sexual Violence in Conflict’ closed this week in London, with British Foreign Secretary William Hague and Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie rallying international support for rape victims in war... But surely the most effective way of ending rape and sexual violence in wars is to end wars and the making of war in the first place... Major contemporary conflict zones across the world are Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. In each case, the British government, present and past, has played an instrumental role in instigating and prolonging. This is not a matter of polemic conjecture. Britain’s causal role in each of these conflicts is documented and provable...

US Capitalism on Heat again for War

One illustration of how deeply in crisis the capitalist system has once again become is the story of fake towns that the Pentagon is building across America. These towns are being used to train the US army in techniques of “urban warfare”. One such place was recently reported as newly opened as a training facility in the state of Virginia. The “model town” took six years to plan and two years to build at a total cost of $96 million, according to a report in Britain’s Daily Telegraph…

America’s Enthusiasm for the Status Quo

The French have a saying that sums up the foreign policy of the United States: «Plus ça change, plus c’est la meme chose» – «the more things change, the more they stay the same». Nothing exemplified America’s enthusiasm for the status quo more than President Obama’s appearance at a news conference alongside British Prime Minister David Cameron prior to the 70 th anniversary commemoration of D-Day held the next day in France. In answer to a question about Scotland remaining in the United Kingdom and the United Kingdom remaining in the European Union, Obama demonstrated his advocacy for «no change» by rejecting Scotland’s «Yes» campaign for independence in a September referendum and the recently victorious UK Independence Party’s (UKIP) vow to withdraw the UK from the European Union…

Time to Remember Operation Overlord

One day before the operation Overlord began, Stalin informed Churchill that according to Tehran agreements, the Soviet offensive would start in mid-July at one of decisive sections of the front. The armies would gradually switch to offensive actions.  In the period late June – end of July the Soviet forces would start overall offensive. He meant operation Bagration launched on June 23, 1944 in Belorussiain concert with the actions of allies fighting at the second front. Hitler was encircled by the coalition forces and his collapse was inevitable. History allows drawing lessons. No matter the differences between political systems, the USSR and Western allies could unite against the common enemy – German Nazism threatening human civilization. What about Neo-Nazism emerging in Ukraine?  Few in the West share the opinion it must be opposed. The events of the 1930s are repeated again…

Anti-EU parties expected to gain in upcoming European polls

European voters go to the polls over the next four days with far-right, nationalist and anti-EU groups set to double their parliamentary representation and threaten the dominance of the pro-union political mainstream. Europe’s ability to influence major world events beyond its own frontiers, on issues ranging from Iran’s nuclear programme to the aftermath of the Arab Spring and human rights across the world, could be severely diminished if anti-EU elements gained a strong presence in the twin Brussels and Strasbourg assemblies.

Ukraine Crisis Continues

...In the 23 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union, many Russians have been of the opinion that Washington, not the Soviet government, was the party to be trusted in the Cold War. What the Russian government has learned recently is that Washington cannot be trusted and that the Soviet government’s suspicions of the West were very well founded. Kiev’s military assault on eastern and southern Ukraine is not going to stop because Europeans finally see the light and object. Europeans not only stood aside for 13 years while Washington bombed civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen, and organized outside forces to attack Syrians, while isolating Iran for military attack, but also actively participated in the attacks. Europe has stood aside while Israel has massacred Palestinians on numerous occasions. For Russia to rely on Europe’s moral conscience is to rely on something that does not exist...
