The road to democracy
12.03.16 21:08 Global Security
The word ‘democracy’ is derived from the Greek words ‘demos’, = people, and ‘cratein’, = rule. Democracy would be the best possible form of governance. In a complete democracy all citizens have the right to speak. Anyone can call attention to problems. Anyone can propose solutions. And all may express arguments in favor or against these solutions, so all interests in play can be discussed. This way decisions can be taken, based on all available knowledge and insight. Supplementary advantages are, that when people participate in the process, they know why the decisions are taken and will respect them more easily. Also, they acquire insight in other peoples’ interests, which contributes to mutual comprehension and peaceful living together.

Why Pakistan let out a ‘Top Secret’
06.03.16 11:02 Asia rising
Anyone’s first instinct will be to pinch oneself and check out whether he is lost in some reverie. Certainly, the stunning remarks by the advisor to the Pakistani prime minister on foreign affairs, Sartaj Aziz earlier this week while on a visit to the US acknowledging publicly the symbiotic relationship between his country and the Taliban will at once seem preposterous. In a few sentences, Aziz unceremoniously demolished a myth that has been assiduously cultivated and tenaciously sustained for two decades and more to the effect that Pakistan has had absolutely nothing to do with the Taliban.

Shame on UN Security Council’s P-5 members!
24.11.15 12:07 Global Security
The United Nations has unanimously passed the resolution tabled by France on fighting the extremist groups operating in Syria and Iraq. The speed with which this has happened is partly explicable by the sense of horror over the terrorist strikes in Paris and partly by the fact that the Islamic State (IS) has drawn the blood of the citizens of all the P-5 world powers in such a short span of time. This was beyond the capability of the al-Qaeda. Unsurprisingly, the P-5 harbor a strong revenge mentality, having been made to look impotent.

Say Hello To My Cruise Missiles

After Ankara: Why Erdogan and NATO’s Strategy is in Ruins
15.10.15 19:43 Middle East
Onur Erem: Last weekend we experienced the biggest bomb attack on civilians in the recent history of Turkey. Around 100 people died (exact number is unknown) and all of us lost many friends. This attack came after the unsolved bombings of Diyarbakir (just ebfore the election, on a Kurdish gathering) and Suruc (which killed 33 young socialists). The opposition in Turkey have been warning the AKP government about their involvement in Syria and opening the Syrian border to radical Islamists. Now we have ISIS cells in Turkey, which have been attacking in Diyarbakir, Suruc and finally Ankara bombings. What do you think about the role of Erdogan and AKP’s Middle East policy, in the recent terrorization of the streets in Turkey? What is your opinion on the Turkey’s involvement in Syria and its relationship with various jihadist organizations?

Washington’s Financial Currency War on China: The Eclipsing of the US Dollar by the Yuan
06.09.15 22:29 Economics
The Chinese are in the process of displacing the monopoly of the US dollar. They are dropping their US Treasury bonds, stockpiling gold reserves, and opening regional distribution banks for their own national currency. This will give them easier access to capital markets and insulate them from financial manipulation by Washington and Wall Street.

Ankara: the New Capital of Jihad, U.S. Policy for Strengthening ISIP
23.08.15 18:35 Global Security
“The US and it’s allies want to keep this monster (ISIS) in check, but they don’t want to destroy it. All their military, political and media campaigns are smokescreens. What the West has done so far has strengthened terrorism not ended it. The proof of this is the fact that terrorism has spread everywhere, its material resources have increased, and its ranks have swollen.” — Syrian President Bashar al Assad

Private Intelligence Contractors as Public Relations Arm of Military Industrial Complex
14.08.15 10:03 Global Security
Evidence shows that “full spectrum dominance” [i] is the goal. Full spectrum dominance, as described by a U.S Department of Defense (DoD) news article, “means the ability of U.S. forces, operating alone or with allies, to defeat any adversary and control any situation across the range of military operations.”

Americas Pivot Faces a Credibility Crisis
12.08.15 08:57 Americas on the move
In response to Beijing’s massive reclamation activities across the Spratly Islands, giving birth to a sprawling network of military bases and advanced facilities on a string of disputed features, the United States has stepped up its reconnaissance missions in the area, presenting a more-than-just-symbolic challenge to Chinese assertion of sovereignty in international waters.
