Russia is right about Iran sanctions

11.02.2011 | 17:30 | BHADRAKUMAR Melkulangara (India)
There is striking similarity in the predicament that India and Russia face with regard to the situation around Iran. For both, Iran has been and will always remain a key strategic partner… The heart of the matter is that the Iran nuclear problem always had a larger-than-life significance… The US’ doublespeak is at once apparent: it camouflages geopolitics as its non-proliferation agenda in the Middle East. Everyone knows that Iran situation is a litmus test of the end of the ‘unipolar’ era…

A bullet from 1945…

Japan is the only place on our planet where the problem of “northern territories” exists. Neither the UN, nor any other country agrees that Tokyo’s territorial claims to the islands are grounded… Naoto Kan described President Dmitry Medvedev`s trip in November to the Kurils as “an unforgivable outrage”, without stopping for a second to think that it was his statement that would better fit into this description… While Russian diplomats are being too politically correct to adequately answer insults, the whole world is watching the ongoing exchange of remarks, wondering how patient Moscow can be about the issue…

The New Global Economy Structure and the Davos Planetarium

09.02.2011 | 08:39 | SALITZKI Alexander
The successful completion of the 5-year cycle in China coincided in time with the Chinese leader’s visit to the US, highlighting the contrast between the relative trajectories of the two economies. Now that the US economy’s bankruptcy is an open secret and Washington is in the process of soliciting a global relaxation of payment schedules, the West’s evasiveness about the situation reflects a naïve attempt not to admit the fact that the era of the US economical dominance is basically over. In the post-American epoch, it will be China’s privilege to shape the mainstream economic discourse.

Egypt: Conflict at the Pivotal Point

08.02.2011 | 08:38 | TYSSOVSKI Yuri
It is clear that Cairo and Egypt’s provinces are reverting to normalcy. Mubarak lost a lot in the conflict but his regime remained afloat even though the West threw its support behind the opposition. As reported by The Daily Telegraph January 29, The American government secretly backed leading figures behind the Egyptian uprising who have been planning “regime change” for the past three years…

Kazakh President thinks several moves ahead

06.02.2011 | 19:43 | SHUSTOV Aleksandr
In terms of time in power Nazarbayev is the absolute leader among the heads of the states of the former USSR… The repetition of the “Tunisian-Egyptian scenario” in Kazakhstan, which seems unbelievable to many people, has been regularly mentioned in the commentaries of the experts and statements of the officials in Astana…

Los Zetas Holds US Drug Business at Gunpoint

05.02.2011 | 10:27 | NIKANDROV Nil
Washington is not going to wage a serious war against the drug business within the US as it would put in jeopardy the country’s financial system propped up by billions of dollars in “drug investments” from across the world. While large-scale offensives against drug groups are launched almost anywhere – in Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Columbia, or Peru – nothing of the kind happens in the US, where the “home” drug mafia remains untouchable…
