Clash of economic interests

THE BRICS NATIONS CHALLENGE THE WEST?
The fourth BRICS summit getting together Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa was held on March 28-29 in New Delhi. No matter it didn’t last long one can say with confidence it has resulted in substantial achievements. In any case it’s obvious the leaders of the member countries had no intention to confine themselves to purely symbolic resolutions, so the outcome of event looks quite telling.

 

Geopolitics

USELESS MISSILE DEFENSE «SECRETS». WHAT’S BEHIND ANOTHER US «GOOD WILL GESTURE?»
The US national missile defense, especially its European component, is one of the major irritants in the Russia — US bilateral relations. The USA insists it is created to counter the threat coming from Iran and North Korea. Russia says geography, physics laws, and irrefutable facts clearly indicate the system is aimed at Russia not Iran. It makes its legitimate concern justified.

 

History debates

OPERATION NORTHWOODS: HAVE THE CIA AND PENTAGON PLANNED TERRORIST ACTS ON THE US SOIL?
It’s hard to believe nowadays. According the US law the archives can be declassified after 50 years. The documents related to Northwood operation, that never took place, were made public after this period of time. Reading it either gets one shocked or makes smile unbelievingly. It was exactly 50 years ago the CIA together with the Joint Chiefs of Staff were planning an attack against their own country. On March 13 1962 then Defense Secretary Robert McNamara submitted the plan to President John Kennedy for approval.

YUAN TROUBLES AND THE CHINESE GLOBAL ECONOMIC LEADERSHIP
At first I’d like to point out the main thesis of the material: China has long ago become the first economic of the planet. While reports on the U.S. monetary policy contain the new data on its financial troubles all the more often, the PRC macro-statistic data indicates a fantastic increment of steel, cast iron and cement production.

 

AXIOMS OF GEOPOLITICAL EXPERIENCE. Part I. Russia, Turkey and the geopolitical retrospection
On the 2nd of August, 1914 Enver Pasha, military officer and actual ruler of Turkey offered Russia to align a military bloc against Germany and Austria-Hungary, once Russia guaranteed eternal Turkish possession of the Straits. Yet, it was exactly the thing that St. Petersburg politicians were unwilling to do, giving Turkey a final push towards the embrace of the Central states. Not multiplying the number of its allies was of vital importance for Russia at the moment and cutting off the Straits Turkey, thus, interrupted the most important channel of Russian communications with its Western allies.

 

TURKEY — RUSSIA — EUROPEAN UNION TRIANGLE. Ankara partners fetched themselves in an equally poor situation
When Russia and China vetoed the resolution on Syria (essentially the same as Libyan one), Erdoğan decided to deliver the fairest justice all by himself. Syrian President Bashar Al-Asad, who "filled up the cup of his patience", was notified that "veto won’t stop Turkey and other countries (including the EU) from imposing sanctions against Damascus".

 

FAIRY-TALE ABOUT EUROPE WITHOUT BORDERS TURNED OUT... MERELY A FAIRY-TALE. Yet, it’s not the worst of it
On the 17th of October EU summit is to take place — primary issue on the agenda of the day is the extension of Schengen zone to the EU freshmen of Bulgaria and Romania. Yet, the latest events have endangered the Schengen extension. Holland and Finland object to that, while all of the EU decisions are made on the consensus grounds.

 

US WILL PUNISH ITS NATO ALLIES, NOT IRAN. Will the economies of Greece and Italy finally collapse without Iranian oil?
It will be rather difficult to forge a solid economic blockade of Iran. The geopolitical opponents of the US and Israel see little point in helping them pursue their own interest, while many American allies are scared of sanctions even more than Tehran itself.

 

Conspirology

"NUCLEAR CALIPHATE" ON THE AGENDA OF THE DAY. Death of Sultan bin Abdul Aziz al-Saudi and the intrigues about the Saudi throne
The most likely contender for the throne, Nayef bin Abdel-Aziz al Saud, is a hardcore adherent of the Saudi hegemony. His coming to power will accelerate the creation of a "new Caliphate" founded upon the GCC, including Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Saudi Arabia. Moreover, this union will be expanded on the account of Jordan and Morocco. It goes without saying that Nayef will attempt to give the GCC nuclear program a kick-start, although proceeding from what we already know, it’s clear that in a year (two at most) we’re to hear the official statement that the "new Caliphate" disposes nuclear weapon.
