As Glaciers Thaw, Arctic Becomes a Hot Spot to Geopolitical Interests

... the U.S. has aimed to bolster its military to adapt to the region’s evolving geopolitical interests and great-power presence. America’s 2019 Arctic Strategy provides for the enhancement in joint exercises and military personnel in conjunction with NATO and the North American Aerospace Command (NORAD).

Talking Turkey With Greece: Turkey and Israel’s Marriage of Convenience

... the avowed objective of achieving firm control over the Middle East and eastern Mediterranean. In this way, Russian influence in the Mediterranean and the Middle East can be contained, á la Kennan, and Israel can be subtly inserted into the de facto NATO fold, with Jordan perhaps being brought into the equation for good measure, while the Turkish mercenaries continue to kill Kurds and Israel conveniently buries the Oslo accords, continuing its ethnic cleansing and illegal settlements. The U.S. Embassy ...

Confusing Order in Order to Order

... views nevertheless connect to a hierarchical mindset.7 Another level of ‘world order’ is that of regional-geographical groupings, such as the EU, the Association of South East Asian Nations, and the Eurasian Economic Union on the economic front, and NATO on the military level. Then we have a universal level, such as the United Nations, and a plethora of organisations, treaties and various agreements that transcend power blocs and geography. At any event, we can see that ‘world order’ can comprise ...

What these British are waiting for? I mean Brexit.

... news talking about before Brexit?’. And he was like: ‘Well, how one politician was eating the sandwich…’ In brief, nothing interesting and nothing special was in UK politics before Brexit. The United Kingdom was following previously the EU, NATO, the US, so an independent move (Brexit) was met with enthusiasm and interest from the global community. Indeed, for 2 years Brexit has become the concentration of the debate in the Parliament and grabbed people’s attention both in the UK and worldwide....

Scotland's Independence - the Irish Border ... and the US

... However, should Scotland leave the UK, the strategic importance of Northern Ireland will increase many times for UK-US force-projection and logistics in the Atlantic. In contrast to the UK, the Republic of Ireland (though member of the EU) is not a NATO country. Hence, if both Scotland gains Independence (and probably re-joins the EU) and Northern Ireland within the next decade or two reunites with the Republic of Ireland (and thereby automatically reunites with the EU), all that can develop into ...

The respective military capabilities are, however, peculiar because Russia is one of the most important nuclear power in the world when Canada is exclusively relying on NATO and the US army to ensure its safety in case of a Russian attack.

Is Russia a real national security threat to the west or is it only a paper tiger?

... Europe as well. It could for example move nuclear-armed missiles into Kaliningrad, a Russian enclave that borders Poland and Lithuania. Alternatively, Russia could use Kaliningrad as a base for large-scale military exercises that simulate an attack on NATO’s Baltic members and involve occupying the strategic Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. Putin doesn’t even need to rely on his military to harm American interests either. He could choose to openly increase economic and political support ...

... called for an “economic war” on Russia… one that may, once again, prove to be beneficial to no one and hurting for both parties. Although Mrs. May is reported to consider the option, we’re actually still far from the triggering of Article 4 of NATO’s founding treaty, that provides for a consultation within the North Atlantic Council should one of the member-States feel threatened (last invoked by Turkey in 2015). The British Government has also hinted they were ready to deploy malware in ...

Trump Should Aid Czech President Zeman in Fighting the “Munich Attitude”

Though some of Zeman’s comments on the resolution of the Ukraine conflict have been simplistic, he fully recognizes that NATO members must discourage Russian aggression. That is why he has made it a national priority to 1) reverse a decrease in defense spending for NATO that resulted from the 2005 economic crisis; and 2) restore the 2% GDP contribution for NATO required ...

Appeasing Norway

... positioned in peaceful Scandinavia, Norway does not appear to be an obvious instigator of great power conflicts. The calm in Scandinavia throughout the Cold War was the result of the non-militarised buffer status of Sweden and Finland as they did not join NATO, while the military activity of Norway was limited compared to the rest of the military bloc. Northern Europe’s status as a harbour of stability has recently begun to unravel partly due to Norway’s new military posture, while NATO’s flirtation ...

For the USA, it is not satisfied with the Turkish rapprochement with Moscow, and might use the Kurdish card to pressure on Ankara, further complicating its regional and internal affairs -Despite of being two close allies in NATO. On the other hand, both Moscow and Washington fear the current timing of independence poll, as the fight against ISIS is tensing and progressing. A crack between Baghdad and Erbil would badly alter the progress made in the fight against ISIS. Moscow ...

The Atlantic Council’s analysts who authored this report have reaffirmed that the most effective course of combatting these threats is through a concerted effort between the European Union and NATO to create a bulwark that would prevent these threats from drastically altering the status quo. Combining critical infrastructures and resources that each of the member states can offer, in the authors’ opinion, will effectively check Russian hybrid ...

Back then, as I noted above, Assad’s forces were being pushed back and U.S. intervention may have led to the toppling of his government, and this not long after the disillusionment of the experience of Libya’s post-NATO-intervention problems (although I still would say that the intervention was successful in saving many lives preventing a civil war from being prolonged, but more on that another time); no other major power had intervened in Syria and thus owned the ...
