Trump's choice for US Ambassador in Russia

It is unlikely that a lifetime critic of the Russian regime will support any tentative to good relations with Russia. Apparently, Washington will endup with similar approach as the proposed by the UK Parliamentary report on the UK-Russia relations that suggested to the UK to engage with Russia but with care  adopting the line that "Russia can't be ignored but can't be trusted".

Did Wikileaks Sound the Death Knell of Western Tech Dominance?

Exactly three years after the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines MH370 on March 7 2014 (17:19 UTC time), the international whistleblowing site Wikileaks dropped a bombshell on how the US Central Intelligence Agency could weaponize just about every “smart device” on the planet.

The Weaponization of Russia in US Domestic Politics

In domestic American political discourse, Russia has become a bludgeon with which the liberal establishment seeks to beat President Donald Trump and his administration. In effect, by appealing to Russia as the source of Trump’s electoral success, the American deep state is working to delegitimise the new administration. In the view of this narrative, Trump’s policies, especially in the foreign policy realm, cannot be trusted, as they are serving the interest of a foreign power rather than the interest of the United States. There are many reasons as to how Russia has become a bogeyman in American politics, ranging from genuine geo-political disagreements, to the liberal establishment using it to explain away their dismal electoral performance. While a full analysis of this phenomenon and its associated nuances is beyond the scope of this blog post, attention will be drawn to its background and utility for the American liberals in their anti-Trump effort.

Improving Ethical Culture by Measuring Stakeholder Trust

Every business firm has a unique culture. Its culture is made up of the cumulative knowledge, experiences, institutions, beliefs, attitudes, and other social artifacts acquired over time. Whether acknowledged or not, the culture of a firm has a powerful influence on how that firm interacts with society, and a very powerful effect on how people within that firm interact with each other. Understanding and improving its culture could be very valuable to a business firm. Stakeholder trust might be the most illuminating window into the ethicality of its culture, and measuring stakeholder trust might be the most effective practical method of improving the ethicality of that culture.

Which prompts us to try to think ethically in those rights. That need to be completely different vision From the past.

Trump Has Conquered Congress

There is no doubt that Donald Trump is a controversial US President. He does not like mass media but at the same time he conducts long and spontaneous press conferences. At first he speaks about China's containment and a little later he approves the “One-China” policy. At every opportunity he resorts to histrionics, which is one of the key elements of the public political persona of America today. But like any notable politician (whom he clearly considers himself) Trump has to designate the starting point of his future political strategy. And if his inaugural speech was a kind of prologue, the speech before Congress became the living picture of the beginning of the story that will go down in history as “America under the Donald Trump Presidency.”

Cybercrime Will Cost the World in Excess of $6 trillion Annually by 2021

Cybersecurity Ventures predicts global annual cybercrime costs will grow from $3 trillion in 2015 to $6 trillion annually by 2021. The 2015 costs are comparable with Germany’s GDP in 2015 ($3,36 trillion). In comparison, the impact of extreme natural disasters is equivalent to a global $520 billion loss in annual consumption, and forces some 26 million people into poverty each year.

Ukraine untold: Is it time for America to ignore Ukraine’s unsolved past, and sacrifice its core values and national interest on the alter of the post-Cold War blindness?

As we have just welcomed the year 2017, many geostrategic agencies and foreign policy pundits have already started sharing with us their political risk bets for the coming months.

In almost every of these predictions Russia, and inherently related to her case of Ukraine, is to be found at the top of the list.

Obviously, this would not mean anything extraordinary and could be perceived as a regular New Year’s update of the already appointed foreign policy path, if not for the fact that in in less than five days the inauguration of Donald Trump, who many times during his campaign suggested that wants to improve the recent tragic relations with Moscow, as the 45th President of the United States will be held.

Iran and Strategic Interaction with Crises

Salam al Rabadi : researcher and author in international relations SPAIN.

 
Iran can be regarded as a model of strategic planning whether it : in the internal planning level or in the nature of external strategic options for crisis management and response. It is clear that Iran adopts a vision based on the construction in various fields. And this is what Iran is trying to do in order to create the objective conditions to achieve.
