Artyom Lukin: If Obama can embrace the Saudi monarch, why can't Putin greet the North Korean ruler?

Kim Jong-un is scheduled to visit Moscow this May as one of the Kremlin's numerous guests of honor for the 70th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany. This will be his first visit abroad since he succeeded his father Kim Jong-il as the ruler of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in December 2011. Kim Jong-un's trip to Moscow is one indication of the warming relationship between Russia and North Korea. The past year has seen a flurry of high-level exchanges...

Artyom Lukin: New Rome vs. New Parthia

From world-economy to American world-empire What is the nature of the modern world order? Answers to this question are incalculable many. However, the one provided by Salvatore Babones, a native New Yorker and currently a professor at the University of Sydney (salvatorebabones.com), has recently struck me as probably the most compelling. His article, published by Far Eastern Federal University’s Oriental Institute Journal, is available here (FULL TEXT) Challenging a conventional wisdom...

Salvatore Babones: The Sanctions War - Easier to Start than to Finish

On July 3, 1988 Iran Air Flight 655 was shot down over the Persian Gulf by the US Navy cruiser USS Vincennes. All 290 people on board were killed. The civilian airliner was shot down in Iranian airspace while flying a regularly scheduled flight on its registered flight path. The incident occurred more than 10,000 km away from the United States. There were no international calls for sanctions on the United States. American businesses were not penalized and American officials were not inconvenienced...

Artyom Lukin: Putin is Right and Obama is Left, and never the twain shall meet

The cancellation of Obama’s visit to Moscow made compellingly clear what previously many have suspected: the current presidents of the United States and Russia are in a state of conflict. Perhaps the problem is the two men’s individual psychological incompatibility – this sometimes happens between politicians. However, in this particular case much more fundamental differences may be playing out. And here I am not referring to the divergences in national interests of Russia and the...

Artyom Lukin: Realism Meets Neo-Marxism: will capitalism bring an end to American hegemony?

The rivalry between the US and China for primacy in the Asia-Pacific, and then possibly on a global scale, is becoming the main story of world politics in the first decades of the twenty-first century. But how, in the first place, did China grow so strong as to be able to challenge the world’s only (as yet) super-power? The answer is well known: the colossal growth of China’s economy. From 1980 to 2012, the PRC’s GDP increased 50 times.[1] As one might have expected, Beijing is...

Paul Richardson: Geopolitical Rivalry in the Asia-Pacific

At noon on the 1st of October 2012, the first Osprey V-22 aircraft landed at Futenma Marine Corps Air Station on Japan’s Okinawa Island. The controversial deployment of this ungainly looking aircraft (a hybrid between a helicopter and fixed-wing plane) has exposed tensions between centre and periphery in Japanese politics, revealed major fault-lines in the U.S.-Japan military alliance, and demonstrated far-wider strategic shifts and geopolitical miscalculations by key states in East Asia. ...
