BARACK OBAMA HAS LOST A KEY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. «Pre-Election America 2012»

BARACK OBAMA HAS LOST A KEY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. «Pre-Election America 2012»

This September told our readers about a scientific method of estimating the chances of contenders for the U. S. presidency based on an analysis of 13 factors, which the inventor of the system Alan Lichtman dubbed «The keys to the White House». Author claimed the lack of major scandals concerning the incumbent government to be a key #9. A month ago the incumbent President held that key and now he seemingly lost it. »»»»»

ALEXANDRE LATSA: ARCTIC AGE. Part I

ALEXANDRE LATSA: ARCTIC AGE. Part I

In 2012 Russia is going to place its bid for extension of its continental Arctic shelf to the UN in order to add 1.2 kilometers (presumably rich with fossil hydrocarbons) more to the 200 miles long exclusive economic zone. Two underwater ridges (the Mendeleev ridge and the Lomonosov ridge) substantiate this claim. It, however, may cause Canada and Denmark putting forth similar territorial claims. »»»»»

TURKEY — RUSSIA — EUROPEAN UNION TRIANGLE.
Ankara partners fetched themselves in an equally poor situation

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". »»»»»

EURASIAN PLAN OF VLADIMIR PUTIN:
Battle for Russia and Middle Asia

EURASIAN PLAN OF VLADIMIR PUTIN: Battle for Russia and Middle Asia

"Eurasian plan of Vladimir Putin" is a reaction of nationally-oriented elite and capital to the current state of affairs. Up to a certain degree this is an attempt to reverse the situation, stop the process of ousting Russia from its geopolitical borders and squeezing into the bed of "Grand Principality of Moscow". »»»»»

EUROPEAN MULTICULTURALISM: Beyond the line of liberty

EUROPEAN MULTICULTURALISM: Beyond the line of liberty

Previously one could have hardly treated European multiculturalism seriously. This concept had all the chances to become the political framework of European integration process, although abuses of democracy and misinterpretations of human rights prevented new citizens of the major European countries from truly enjoying the fruits of the "free world". European relative multiculturalism ended up with a natural relative failure in a relatively tolerant European society. »»»»»

BERLUSCONI IS 75. What lies ahead for him?

BERLUSCONI IS 75. What lies ahead for him?

Numerous scandals have seemingly done its dirty job. Previously Berlusconi’s rating had never dropped below 40%, but now it slid to a twice lower mark. Economic crisis struck Italy hard, and Silvio barely noticed that through the disco-lights of his bunga-bunga parties. Political career of this — frankly speaking, quite elderly — man is on the sunset and we can’t rule out the possibility of crowning it with a lawsuit. »»»»»

AXIOMS OF GEOPOLITICAL EXPERIENCE. Part I.
Greater Caucasus at the Great Chessboard

AXIOMS OF GEOPOLITICAL EXPERIENCE. Part I. Greater Caucasus at the Great Chessboard

Greater Caucasus has never been a politically-geographical line, but rather a "courtyard" of nations and cultures. Border of the Russian Federation that was established in 1991 and came through the main range of Greater Caucasus cannot be stable, which the events to follow have surely proved. »»»»»

WHAT DO OBAMA AND SARKOZY HAVE IN COMMON?

WHAT DO OBAMA AND SARKOZY HAVE IN COMMON?

Who of these Presidents is better off three months before the election year ends? Is it Sarkozy — not particularly popular, but featuring a reputation of a steady leader, navigating the country through the crisis? Or is it Obama, whose lifestyle and behavior cause no contempt among his compatriots, but whose authority in the matters of American economics and foreign policy is growing all the more dubious? »»»»»

NEW JAPANESE GOVERNMENT: Portrait features

NEW JAPANESE GOVERNMENT: Portrait features

New Japanese government distinguished itself with new political scandals even before it started working properly. New Japanese Minister of Economics Yoshio Hachiro stayed at his post for merely 9 days. Having a peculiar sense of humor, he dubbed the radioactively polluted Fukushima prefectures the "death cities" and while meeting with the journalists after attending Fukushima-1, he greeted them, saying "I’m going to infect you with radiation now!" and pretending to embracing one of the journalists. »»»»»

WILL ALGERIA BE THE NEXT TARGET? Interests of the USA, France and Al-Qaida have tied into a single knot
 

WILL ALGERIA BE THE NEXT TARGET? Interests of the USA, France and Al-Qaida have tied into a single knot

Algerian militants are tightly bound to the Special Services of certain Gulf States, pursuing their own goals. Time of peace for Algerian is at an end. Talkative Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi has indirectly confirmed it, announcing his intention to replace the Algerian gas with Libyan one soon enough. Mind that Algeria as a supplier has never left a handle for reproaches. »»»»»
