It is deeply disappointing that Washington rejected Moscow’s rather simple proposal to repeat the easily understood adage of the Cold War era that a nuclear war cannot be unleashed, because there will be no winners.
Cold War 2.0
It has been a history of turns and the occasional betrayal, but Hong Kong’s experiment with democracy, incubated within the Special Administrative Region, was always going to be contingent on some level. Its colonial past is a poke, a reminder of British bullying, the corruptions of opium and a time […]
A fragmentation of the global economic space by a policy of completely unlimited economic egoism and a forced breakdown is the road to endless conflict, trade wars and maybe not just trade wars. Figuratively, this is the road to the ultimate fight of all against all.
A summit of the national security advisors from the USA, Israel and Russia has been announced in Jerusalem. The aim of this conference is to untangle the imbroglio around the Axis of Resistance, guarantee the security of all the States in the Middle East, and establish a shared suzerainty of the United States and Russia over all the actors, including Israel.
Together with other advisory documents for high-level decision makers in the US, the new report by RAND experts is evidence of a large-scale campaign being carried out against Russia. All of the recommendations, especially those included in the military section, are virtually pointing to the preparation of a war with Russia.
New possibilities are opening up for Indian diplomacy at the two-day summit meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) at Bishkek on June 13-14. But scepticism regarding the SCO’s potentials still lingers on.
The largely grassroots movement that’s organically sprung up in Hong Kong might be mostly comprised of well-intended people, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that it has all the hallmarks of a Color Revolution and could very easily be hijacked by foreign forces and their extremist collaborators in […]
In 1940, the German Wehrmacht was modern history’s supreme fighting machine. But only four years later, the Wehrmacht was broken. Most Americans, British and Canadians believe that D-Day was the decisive stroke that ended WWII in Europe. But this is not true. Germany’s mighty Wehrmacht, which included the Luftwaffe, was destroyed by Stalin’s Soviet Union.
This month’s SCO and G20 Summits will see Eurasia first make a pretense of unity in Bishkek prior to Trump exploiting its preexisting fault lines in Osaka, with the US attempting to play Russia, India, and China off against one another in order to divide and rule the supercontinent. The […]
The US has given Turkey two weeks to pull out of a deal to buy Russian S-400 missile defence systems. Otherwise, Turkey can expect a variety of unpleasant repercussions. America’s attempts to dissuade Turkey from buying S-400 Triumf missile defence systems from Russia have become like a long-running TV series. […]
The Maldives is well placed to come out into the open on the Chagos Island issue and weigh its pros and cons in geopolitical terms. It has no ethnic affinity, historically, with the natives of Mauritius. And the strong likelihood is that Solih government weighed in that it was on the right side of history on the Chagos Archipelago issue and will be annoying Delhi by lending legitimacy to the US base in Diego Garcia.
Judging by the reaction of official Chinese media outlets, Beijing is expecting neither a speedy nor a peaceful resolution to its economic conflict with Washington. Even America has noticed a change in tone to Beijing’s official media position: “China vows ‘people’s war’ as trade fight takes nationalist turn”, writes the […]
