The United States and NATO are yet to begin the withdrawal of their forces from Afghanistan but the eyes are cast over the horizon at what lies after the ‘forever war’ formally ends. The US exit strategy in Afghanistan assumes the look of that random arbitrariness of a lottery that […]
He seemed frustrated. While Scott Morrison’s international colleagues at the Leaders Summit on Climate were boastful in what their countries would do in decarbonising the global economy, Australia’s feeble contribution was put on offer. Unable to meet his own vaccination targets, the Australian prime minister has decided to confine the […]
Was Osama bin Laden really the brains behind the Nine Eleven? Until now there is no really convincing evidence. But for US, especially Bush Junior, with that pain event, somebody must be wrong and responsible, or someone must be beaten using US’s Millitary Industrial Complex machine. US does have indications […]
The Ukrainian population is divided between a part of European culture and another of Russian culture. This singularity offers Washington a playground against Moscow. For several weeks now, the drums have been beating, sounding war. But none of the allies want to die for Kiev or sacrifice themselves to Russia.
In his landmark foreign policy speech delivered from the US state department on February 4, President Joe Biden had proclaimed that “America is back. Diplomacy is back at the centre of our foreign policy.” That maxim was put to test last week. And it failed to make the grade. A […]
After two decades of fighting in Afghanistan, losing thousands of servicemen, losing trillion dollars, killing millions of innocent Afghans, destroying millions of homes, damaging Afghanistan completely, finally, the US accepted its defeat in the Afghan war. On April 14, 2021, President Joe Biden made a speech from the Roosevelt — […]

The American and Russian Presidents have a slew of issues to discuss in the event that they meet in person sometime in the coming future like Biden proposed doing during their last phone conversation, but the most important topics on the itinerary would arguably be strategic security and peacefully resolving […]
The guided-missile destroyer USS John Paul Jones sailing past Lakshadweep Islands April 7 has thrown India’s Sinophobes into confusion. One leading daily noted it as a “rare falling out between the two partners in the Quad grouping.” An anti-China analyst tweeted that it’s just a “botched PR exercise” on the […]
The Biden Administration is full of good will, but ignorant of the world as it is. Under the authority of a senile president, it proposes to restore democracy in the world, without being aware that the social classes that made this political regime are disappearing. It hopes to re-establish the American Empire, feared by a majority of peoples, with the conviction that it is doing them a favour. Finally, it intends to continue the “endless war”, but without sacrificing the lives of US soldiers. But it does not know how to explain this.
It is the Pentagon’s mission to move from physical presence to sophisticated online operations in the near future. And, for America’s military and political communities, March proved rather fruitful when it came to various doctrines and strategies. At the start of March, the Interim National Security Strategic Guidance was released […]
