The first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency in military terms

April 29 marks the 100th day in office of Donald Trump – a man who, unlike many of his predecessors in recent decades, lacks any practical experience serving in the government’s executive or legislative branches, or even in the military. This 45th US president – whose bid for office was supported by military officials and […]

What will force the US decision makers to come to their senses?

Current decision makers in Washington and Brussels cannot be counted on to reach solutions independently of each other. They need each other to survive. Europe will tank with political unrest before European heads of state will dare go against current Washington policy makers. We need to know from Snowden what do NSA and Washington neocons […]

Banning Nuke Tests

On December 5, 2012 the Nevada National Security Site was struck by another US nuclear test. As the Nation of Change described it: ‘…there was little public fanfare, less national media coverage, and only a smattering of international protest suggesting that the test violated the spirit of the 1996 Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.’ The Treaty, signed […]

What Missiles Are Threatening Europe?

The issue of creating missile defense boundaries in Europe is largely political in nature. The United States is developing the system more for ensuring national security — officially from Iran, but in reality from China and possibly Russia. Otherwise, it is difficult to understand its persistence in establishing a global missile defense system in Europe […]

USA Used Tactical Nuclear Weapons in Afghanistan and Iraq

It became clear after the Seoul nuclear summit that the USA sticks to the old policy that goes back to 1945 – to monopolize the right to use nuclear weapons by making their non-proliferation part of international law in combination with new restrictive measures against others including Russia. It all should lead to the return […]

Missile Defense: America Wants Russia to Take Her on Trust

The United States does not believe it has to give Russia a legal guarantee that the developmental American missile defense system is not directed against them. “We have given legally binding guarantees on offensive weapons against Russia. And that is really what they need,” said Patrick Leahy, Chairman of the State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee […]

World On Course For Next Crisis?

In his recent article in The Telegraph, Gordon Brown, the ex British PM, has urged politicians at the next G20 summit, which takes place in Cannes in November, to take control of a globalised financial system which is still “perilously” unregulated. The West is following a practice—and a very dangerous one – to save itself […]

Libya: ‘Winged Democracy’ in Critical Tail-Spin

Global war-mongers are seemingly in deep frustration. Despite huge investments in ‘people opposition movement’, disinformation campaign and eventual direct foreign intervention in Libya, the ‘anti-Gaddafi project’ has come to obvious deadlock. That looks quite surprising. Regular Libyan army beats the ‘rebels’ despite three weeks of constant NATO bombardments and heavy losses in aviation and field […]
