What should one expect from the upcoming US-North Korea summit? Whatever deals are struck, they must be clearly demarcated, so as to leave no room for aberration.
The Cold War era finished without the „end of history“ as the US continues the same policy from the time of the Cold War against Moscow – now not against the USSR but against Russia. For Washington the Cold War era in fact has never ended as the fundamental political task to eliminate Russia from the world politics still is not accomplished.
Western governments are known to deploy so-called “sock puppets” and “bots” in waging information warfare, and it’s no secret that they coordinate campaigns with their Mainstream Media partners, which makes it all the more shameless for them to accuse their opponents of doing the same thing that they do out of the desperation that only such a stinging narrative defeat can bring.
The most important significance of what just happened is that it proves the success of the US’ “Operation Condor 2.0” hemisphere-wide unipolar comeback over the past few years in regaining control of most of the continent following its “Pink Tide” multipolar “rebellion” a decade ago.
The events in Armenia are the destabilization of this state that corresponds chiefly to the interests that the US and its allies have in provoking problems right in the center of the Russian-Turkish-Iranian Multipolar Tripartite at this sensitive geopolitical time.
The white man of the Old World will be further content to think that he has the right to live and sin as he wishes. But the malevolent paupers with the Koran in their hands will, like nomads taking over a desert oasis, occupy the living areas piece by piece, biting it off block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood.
Looking beyond the failed (former) “state” of Libya that NATO destroyed in 2011, there are several other crises waiting to happen in Africa and which could serve as the trigger for a Migrant Crisis 2.0. The first one isn’t country-specific but deals with the continent’s woes in general.
Nowadays Nicaragua is the host of China’s planned Transoceanic Canal that’s meant to rival the Panamanian one but which has thus far sluggishly struggled to get off the ground, though like almost everything in contemporary International Relations, there’s also a Russian angle to it as well.
Macron might have extracted much more out of the state visit than his host could. The much talked about “bromance” between Trump and Macron all but turned out to be a case of “tough love.” Macron probably got close enough to Trump to say some mean things that he wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise.
While Kanye’s recent life experiences very closely parallel the rapid rise and fall of Harrison Bergeron when the sci-fi short story character briefly rebelled against the totalitarian ideology of the authoritarian system, the rapper might actually succeed where Kurt Vonnegut’s 1961 character failed.
Given that the US political system is based on “iron triangles” — the intersecting interests of corporations, government officials, and special-interest groups — it is unlikely that any truly sensible decision will be made in the US in regard to the use of armed force that would make it possible to resolve conflicts by means of diplomacy instead.
Saudi Arabia hopes that the psychological pressure of being cut off from the mainland together with the deployment of a Saudi base and the construction of a nuclear storage facility on the southern half of the newly created “island” will ensure that Qatar continues to feel under threat, though this might inadvertently backfire by triggering a “siege mentality” among its population.
