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...

The Economist: Empty vaults. Will the next country to stiff bondholders be Ukraine or Venezuela?

A central bank that takes a visiting economist down to its vaults to prove that it does indeed have the reserves it claims must be very worried about market sentiment. And so Venezuela’s should be: the price of insuring the country’s bonds against default has risen by 80% over the past two months—suggesting they are the world’s riskiest (see chart). Bond yields over 16% also imply that markets are bracing for a crash. Last month Standard & Poor’s, a ratings agency, downgraded Venezuela, saying there was a one-in-two chance of default within two years.

NATO and US Special Services Beachhead in Colombia

Colombia wanted to cooperate with NATO on Afghanistan. It was in the plans. In 2009, the Colombian Government asked to be part of the ISAF (the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan) and work with the Spanish contingent in the mine detection operations, but this didn't materialize due to the internal conflict that Colombia faced... Then President Alvaro Uribe considered the fact that his country was invited to take part in the fight against the Taliban as substantiation to claim the status of US Latin American privileged partner... The US has strong military presence in Colombia under the pretext of fighting drug trafficking and guerilla formations...

Smuggling as Economic Warfare Weapon

The Venezuelan government has declared war against smugglers. The country-wide operation is led by Operational Strategic Commander of the National Armed Forces, General-in-Chief Vladimir Padrino López... According to Piedad Cordova, former governor of Columbia, who is a member of the team holding talks with FARC guerillas, Columbian ultra-right paramilitary groups close to the US Central Intelligence Agency and defense intelligence pose a real threat to Venezuela... Cordova emphasized that the groups are funded by Washington. Their prime mission is to topple President Maduro. They control a large segment of smuggled car fuel and lubricants. The profit is spent for the acquisition of weapons and building springboards on the Venezuelan territory...

Case of Hugo Carvajal: Provocation on Aruba Island

The United States has started to avoid the burden of looking for evidence in case it wants to accuse someone of criminal activities. In recent years the US has become accustomed to ignore legal responsibility. The pretext of fighting terrorists has been used to allow detaining «potential criminals», putting them into secret jails and using cruel torture to get confession. The whole US security system has been affected. The leaders of American special services have got accumulated the experience of detaining (legally or not) people abroad and bringing them into the United States to make face trial. But there are failures suffered on the way and lessons to be learnt...

Latin America Refuses to Live in US «Global Barracks»

Latin America paid great interest to the President Putin’s speech at the conference of Russian Federation ambassadors and permanent representatives on July 1.The interest grew even more as it was reported on June 4 Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to visit Cuba, Argentina and Brazil later this month. The President is to visit Latin America and attend a summit of the BRICS group of five major emerging economies (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) on July 11-16...

U.S. Intelligence Terrorizes Venezuela

...In Venezuela the Chilean scenario did not work. The conspirators, following the instructions of their overseers from the CIA, planned to provoke mass discontent. They tried everything: an artificial shortage of staple commodities, sabotage on public transportation, attacks on government agencies, and barricading of major highways and roads to residential areas. Everywhere over the cities - as an alarming sign of instability - there hung black smoke from burning tires (an eloquent echo of the Kiev Maidan)... In practically all large cities in Venezuela, including the capital, shots were heard frequently during the months of anti-government demonstrations. Most of those killed were ordinary citizens. In the first stage of the terrorist operations for overthrowing the regime, the CIA mercenaries deliberately and consistently chose victims on both sides of the barricades (just as on the Kiev Maidan). Their goal was to exacerbate the confrontation between supporters of the government and the opposition. In the practice of American intelligence, «slaughter statistics» are an important aspect of the sabotage war against the country selected for destabilization...

China’s Presence in Latin America: Strategy of Gradual Squeezing US Out

The US has lost its financial might struggling for world leadership and involved in overseas wars. To large extent China has taken its place...

‘Secret’ military bases in the Western Hemisphere

In November 2013, the National Assembly of Nicaragua ratified the government’s decision allowing Russian military units, ships and aircraft to visit the republic in the first half of 2014. Their crews have also been given permission to take part in the professional training of Nicaraguan military personnel and to share with them their expertise...

He also mentioned that talks were being held with Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Singapore and the Seychelles...

Latin America Chooses Russia-Made Weapons

Latin American experts know it well – Russia-made weapons are known for quality. Rosoboronexport (the state intermediary agency for Russia’s exports/imports of defense-related products, technologies and services) has rich experience of doing deals in the Western Hemisphere – from Mexico to Chile... FIDAE-2014, the International Air and Space Fair, took place on March 25 – 28, 2014, in Santiago de Chile. It became another step on the way of expanding Russia’s presence on Latin American arms market...

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...
