Forget Diplomacy With North Korea if Trump Decertifies the Iran Deal

Por • 13 oct, 2017 • Category: Internacionales

U.S. President Donald Trump has long been an opponent of the nuclear deal with Iran. At the recent UN General Assembly, he called the agreement an embarrassment. After the administration certified that Iran was in compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in July, Trump instructed a trusted group of advisors to build a case to not certify Iran’s compliance when the next deadline came due on October 15. With the new deadline approaching, Trump has three options. Continue to certify that the Iran is in compliance with its obligations under JCPOA, notify Congress that Iran is no longer in compliance, or notify Congress that remaining in the JCPOA is no longer in the national interest of the United States.



Challenging the Dollar: China and Russia’s Plan from Petroyuan to Gold

Por • 6 oct, 2017 • Category: Internacionales

The reason the dollar plays such an important role in the world economy is due to the following three major factors: the petrodollar; the dollar as world reserve currency; and Nixon’s decision in 1971 to no longer make the dollar convertible into gold. As is easy to guess, the petrodollar strongly influenced the composition of the SDR basket, making the dollar the world reserve currency, spelling grave implications for the global economy due to Nixon’s decision to eliminate the dollar’s convertibility into gold. Most of the problems for the rest of the world began from a combination of these three factors.



Discurso de Donald Trump ante la 72ª Sesión de la Asamblea General de la ONU

Por • 30 sep, 2017 • Category: Internacionales

La dictadura socialista de Nicolás Maduro ha infligido terrible dolor y sufrimiento a la buena gente de ese país. Este régimen corrupto destruyó una nación próspera al imponer una ideología fallida que ha producido pobreza y miseria en todas partes donde se ha intentado. Para empeorar las cosas, Maduro ha desafiado a su propio pueblo, robando el poder de sus representantes electos para preservar su desastroso régimen. El pueblo venezolano está muriendo de hambre y su país está colapsando. Sus instituciones democráticas están siendo destruidas. Esta situación es completamente inaceptable y no podemos quedarnos mirando. Como vecino y amigo responsable, nosotros y todos los demás tenemos un objetivo. Ese objetivo es ayudarles a recuperar su libertad, recuperar su país y restaurar su democracia. Quisiera agradecer a los líderes en esta sala por condenar al régimen y brindar un apoyo vital al pueblo venezolano. Estados Unidos ha tomado medidas importantes para responsabilizar al régimen. Estamos dispuestos a tomar más medidas si el gobierno de Venezuela persiste en su camino para imponer un gobierno autoritario al pueblo venezolano.



Russian New Generation Warfare Handbook

Por • 26 sep, 2017 • Category: Internacionales

This handbook attempts to examine the tactics used by Russia in Ukraine as the military component of their New Generation Warfare doctrine. We will attempt to describe their capabilities and applications of combat power. Finally, this handbook will present recommendations for U.S. Battalions and Brigade Combat Teams to counter these Russian methods of war. The war in Ukraine is still ongoing. The Russian Forces are still involved in Syria and continue to improve from their successes and shortfalls. We, as American Soldiers, must do the same. As the saying goes, “Only fools learn from their mistakes. The wise man learns from the mistakes of others.”



China and India: The Roots of Hostility

Por • 17 sep, 2017 • Category: Internacionales

Last but not least, China has always seen itself as a superior, unrivaled civilization-state. The CCP leadership consciously conducts itself as the heir to China’s imperial legacy, often employing the symbolism and rhetoric of empire. From primary school textbooks to television historical dramas, the state-controlled media has force-fed generations of Chinese a diet of nationalist bluster and imperial China’s grandeur. One lesson Chinese school textbooks teach is that “strength leads to expansion and weakness to contraction.” That is why Beijing no longer feels constrained by bilateral or multilateral pacts or treaties that it signed on to “when China was weak.” A common refrain is that “other countries need to ‘get used to’ its assertive posture and Chinese maritime forays, whether they like it or not.” So “history” battles over territorial disputes are essentially about the future of regional order: Pax Sinica versus Pax Americana. Beijing’s assessment of the United States as being distracted internally, and weakened diplomatically, has emboldened Chinese leadership to be aggressive.



Russia will never let Iran obtain nuclear weapons

Por • 4 sep, 2017 • Category: Internacionales

According to the diplomat, Moscow looks up to “equal” relations with all countries of the Middle East, without singling out any of them, unlike in the Soviet times, when some countries would be prioritised. In the interview, Shein touched upon one of Israel’s key issues – the Iranian nuclear program. The official assured that Russia will never let the Islamic Republic possess nuclear weapons. “As far as Iran is concerned, we are participants of a comprehensive agreement signed between the Group of Six and Iran, which allows the IAEA to closely control Iran with regard to peaceful nuclear issues to prevent the development of the nuclear bomb. We will never let Iran obtain nuclear weapons,” Shein said.



Washington wants to hang the burden of Iran on Russia’s neck

Por • 29 ago, 2017 • Category: Internacionales

Nikolai Kozhanov of Russian-Eurasian program Chetteh House noted that the policy of the US administration towards Iran creates conditions for Tehran to seek help and support from Moscow forcing the countries to cooperate even more. In other words, it just so happens that Trump deliberately pushes Tehran into Moscow’s arms, apparently to burden Russia with as many complicated issues as possible, to link the Kremlin with allied regimes willing to qualitatively raise their international status. Those regimes are inconvenient partners: Iran intends to become a regional superpower, while China develops the role of a global superpower. Both for Tehran and Beijing, Russia is an advantageous ally, but they will not take Russia’s interests into account in their strategies. Washington wants to hang Iran on Russia’s neck and make Iran become a nuclear power. With such allies by her side, Russia will lose its ability for strategic manoeuvres. As a result, Russia’s achievements, for example, in the Middle East, may turn against her own interests.



Reckless game over the Korean Peninsula runs risk of real war

Por • 11 ago, 2017 • Category: Internacionales

China opposes both nuclear proliferation and war in the Korean Peninsula. It will not encourage any side to stir up military conflict, and will firmly resist any side which wants to change the status quo of the areas where China’s interests are concerned. It is hoped that both Washington and Pyongyang can exercise restraint. The Korean Peninsula is where the strategic interests of all sides converge, and no side should try to be the absolute dominator of the region.



Perspectivas de las economías latinoamericanas frente a la economía mundial

Por • 23 jul, 2017 • Category: Internacionales

La oportunidad que ofrecen los presentes cambios de las relaciones comerciales, tanto para el Mercosur con su relación con China, como para América del Norte y Centroamérica con el posible debilitamiento comercial con EEUU, así como el reacomodo de las relaciones comerciales de la Unión Europea, puede ser bien aprovechada y generar mejores condiciones económicas para América Latina. Se debe trabajar en un esquema productivo no anclado en materias primas y mano de obra barata, transitar de uno modelo profundamente dependiente a las cadenas productivas internacionales, hacia otro con mayor autonomía industrial y diversificación productiva que considere nuevamente a la región.
