Great Game & Partitioning Of Syria

Russia’s decision to greatly reduce its military presence in Syria, coming as it did with little warning, has left the world struggling for explanations.

Who will win the Power Struggle for Tajikistan in the Central Asian ‘Great Game’?

A man named Ahmad Shah Massoud was assassinated in northern Afghanistan, by men who came in the disguise of journalists. At that time (and even now) not many paid attention to this event. However this minor event turned world politics […]

The Arab Revolutions as an Anti-China Scheme

We can, of course, find our own objective social and economic causes for any given process. Various analysts have already identified a great number for the so-called “Arab revolutions.” However, if we view the situation from a global standpoint, we see that the further things progress the clearer their anti-China bent becomes.

Representing about 15% of the Kyrgyzstan’s 5.6 million population, ethnic Uzbeks are the victims of pogroms staged by shadowy […]
