The day American democracy died

Por • 13 ene, 2021 • Category: Internacionales

Without doubt, the US has been fundamentally weakened on the international stage. It has become a hopeless task to try to restore American deterrence and prestige. Rival powers will see new vulnerability in the US. Even the US’ firmest allies in Europe are wondering why they should place trust in the trans-Atlantic alliance with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization at its center when American politics has become so febrile. The general perception is that President Donald Trump incited the “insurrection,” to borrow the expression used by President-elect Joe Biden. Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany and Prime Minister Boris Johnson of Britain on Thursday also placed the blame squarely on Trump.

Military And Political Trends Of 2020 That Will Shape 2021

However, despite the recognition of Guaido as the president of Venezuela by the US and its allies, regime-change attempts, and the deep economic crisis, the Maduro government survived. This case demonstrated that the decisive leadership together having the support of a notable part of the population and working links with alternative global centers of power could allow any country to resist to globalists’ attacks. The US leadership itself claims that instead of surrendering, Venezuela turned itself into a foothold of its geopolitical opponents: China, Russia, Iran and even Hezbollah. While this evaluation of the current situation in Venezuela is at least partly a propaganda exaggeration to demonize the ‘anti-democratic regime’ of Maduro, it highlights parts of the really existing situation.

The cost of victory – Chinese interest rates

It was clear to Napoleon three things are necessary to win a war: money, money, money. It was clear perhaps also because he knew well that France had a worse financial system than England. England against Napoleon was basically expelled from continental Europe. It lost almost every land engagement for about 20 years, since the outbreak of the revolution in 1789 until the battle of Leipzig in 1813, yet persistently managed to collect the funds to bankroll new wars, win new allies and eventually break France and its ambitions. England did that because it had better credit. The people who lent money in the world trusted England and its old institutions rather than the new upstart self-proclaimed French emperor.

Why Turkey is upgrading its ties with Israel

Por • 31 dic, 2020 • Category: Internacionales

MK Bhadrakumar December 29,2020. The upgrade of Turkey-Israel diplomatic ties to an ambassadorial level has not come as a surprise, and it is by no means an extension of the Abraham Accords. In essence, Turkey is posting a new envoy to Tel Aviv after a gap of two years. The downgrading of ties was a mark of […]

Venezuela rechaza decisión de la Corte Internacional de Justicia sobre el Esequibo

Por • 20 dic, 2020 • Category: Internacionales

Randolf Borges Diciembre 18, 2020. El canciller de la República Bolivariana de Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, leyó un contundente comunicado que rechaza el dictamen “apresurado e ilegal” de la Corte Internacional de Justicia, que resolvió entregar el territorio Esequibo a la República Cooperativa de Guyana, área en disputa en un laudo arbitral desde 1899. El fallo […]

Corte de La Haya emitirá el 18 de diciembre primer fallo en diferendo con Guyana sobre el Esequibo

Por • 13 dic, 2020 • Category: Internacionales

El tribunal solo dará a conocer si se declara competente para juzgar el caso, tal y como reclamó Guyana en unas vistas orales celebradas el pasado junio, mientras Venezuela considera que la CIJ carece de jurisdicción y defiende que el asunto se resuelva de forma bilateral.

China grapples with the price of modern power

Por • 3 dic, 2020 • Category: Internacionales

Around 2007, the mood in the Western world about the People’s Republic of China (PRC), ruled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), was optimistic. The idea was that if China were to pass some reforms to liberalize its system and modestly democratize, it would be admitted to the fraternity of the free world. Then many things went wrong, mainly China’s deep-seated misunderstanding of unspoken global rules, and now the situation is totally different. The price for a return to a peaceful and seamless coexistence with the US and the rest of the developed world has gone up for China. Nobody will be satisfied with modest liberal reforms: the first request is full-fledged democracy and the fall of Communist Party rule.

The Elements of the China Challenge

Por • 25 nov, 2020 • Category: Internacionales

Awareness has been growing in the United States — and in nations around the world — that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has triggered a new era of great-power competition. Yet few discern the pattern in China’s inroads within every region of the world, much less the specific form of dominance to which the party aspires. The CCP aims not merely at preeminence within the established world order — an order that is grounded in free and sovereign nation-states, flows from the universal principles on which America was founded, and advances U.S. national interests —but to fundamentally revise world order, placing the People’s Republic of China (PRC) at the center and serving Beijing’s authoritarian goals and hegemonic ambitions

All sides need to heed Kissinger’s warning: Global Times editorial

Por • 20 nov, 2020 • Category: Internacionales

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has called on the incoming Biden administration to move quickly to restore lines of communication with China; otherwise, the world will slide into a catastrophe comparable to World War I. He believes that China and the US are «conducting their diplomacy in a confrontational way» and «the danger is that some crisis will occur that will go beyond rhetoric into actual military conflict.»
