Russia in Crimea: to Rescue, Protect and Defend

Por • 5 mar, 2014 • Category: Política

Playing its geopolitical games the West has approached the red line posing a threat to the balance of forces in the Black Sea region and, potentially, in the entire Eurasia. The Russia’s interests in the region are not something abstract; it’s a reality for the West to reckon with. Could Russia watch quietly how NATO is getting tighter the moose around its neck while millions of Russian lives are jeopardized in Ukraine as the events unfold unfavorably for them?. The south-eastern part of the country became somewhat disorganized as a result of President Victor Yanukovych fleeing the country and the betrayal of many MPs from the Party of Regions. It complicated the efforts to counter the trend. Especially under the conditions when «evolutionary expediency» substitutes the law. It’s hard to imagine the United States installing elements of missile defense somewhere as near as Lugansk and Donetsk, but even if it were Dnepropetrovsk, for instance, the deployment of US interceptors at the distance of 1000 km from the centers of vital importance on Russian soil would have been unacceptable.



A grand new strategy for China

Por • 27 feb, 2014 • Category: Internacionales

A major military and diplomatic shift is occurring in Asia. It is pushing China to reconsider its strategic priorities and this is causing a domino effect in regional politics. The change is spawning a maze of new alliances. To prevent everything from unraveling, the US and China must find a new common ground that enables collaboration on the world’s biggest quagmires – Central Asia and Middle East. This is necessary for peace in both the Middle East and the Pacific region.



The new US-Russia Cold War

In already trademark Obama administration style, the State Department’s support for anti-Russia, pro-EU protests in Ukraine qualifies as “leading from behind” (remember Libya). It comes complete with “humanitarian” appeal, calls for “reconciliation” and good against evil dichotomy masking a drive towards regime change. Abandon all hope to find voices of sanity on US corporate media such as NYU and Princeton’s Stephen Cohen, who cut to the chase in this piece, stressing that the essential revelation of Nulandgate “was that high-level US officials were plotting to ‘midwife’ a new, anti-Russian Ukrainian government by ousting or neutralizing its democratically elected president – that is, a coup”. Here the “strategy” clearly reveals itself as a US puppet now – coup or no coup – instead of an EU puppet later. No one in the Beltway gives a damn that Viktor Yanukovich was legally elected president of Ukraine, and that he had full authority to reject a dodgy deal with the EU.



THE MEDITERRANEAN AND CENTRAL ASIA: THE HINGES OF EURASIA

Por • 31 oct, 2011 • Category: Internacionales

The practice applied by the Western system, led by the US and intended, as described above, to amplify the crises in Eurasia and in the Mediterranean is not aimed at their stabilization. On the contrary, such a procedure is devoted to maintain its own hegemony, through militarization of international relationships and involvement of local actors. Moreover, this kind of geopolitical “road map” is aimed at identifying other future probable targets (Iran, Syria, Turkey) useful for the US’s foothold in Eurasia, laying out some reflections regarding the “health” of the US and the structuring of the multipolar system.



Vladimir Putin and the Empire

The policy of Putin could be explained by Eurasian code – even though sometimes it looked like Putin went away from that direction, in the long run the main tendencies and patterns fitted together



TO UNDERSTAND IS TO DEFEAT

The Jews are the carriers of a religious culture which is deeply distinct from all historical displays of Indo-European spirituality – from ancient Aryan heathen cults to Hinduism and Christianity.
