Does anyone know if Putin or others in Russian elite understand the importance of the Battle of Brandywine as it pertains to today's times? The same question in regards to the Battle was asked to previous American administration, none have yet answered correctly. Current administration has yet to be asked. This was the question given to Reagan by top assessment personnel to counter all those who preferred to keep the Cold War going and was the catalyst for Reagan to have the courage to go against...

It is not NK but All of Asia in US Crosshairs!

... different. South Korea (and Japan) is awash with anti-American undercurrents. During the 2006 World Cup in Germany, US army personnel in Yongsan were advised by their commanders to avoid passionate South Korean fans who would gather in their tens of thousands to watch giant open air live telecasts of their national team in action. There was a good precedent for this injunction: During the 2002 World Cup, a US military vehicle struck and killed two young schoolgirls in Seoul, sparking an unprecedented ...

What does Trump’s team actually believe about Russia?

A Guide to the West Wing’s true feelings about their counterparts in the Kremlin. During the current period of hyper partisanship in Washington DC, it can be difficult for Americans and Non-Americans alike to understand what the Trump Administration actually believes regarding Russia.

Below is a brief guide to the political views of the main members...

The Syrian Missile Attack –Theatrics & House Cleaning?

... the current Director of the CIA Mike Pompeo and the Secretary of Defense are on record as properly reporting the fact of the false flag, and properly objecting to the missile attack as both unconstitutional and a violation of international law, the USA not being in a declared state of war with Syria. So what, exactly, has happened here? Alert citizens – and there are many more of them these days thanks to Donald Trump having opened the door to the demise of the Deep State – have noticed ...

“The World in Disarray”: Is An Update of the International System Possible?

In today’s globalized world system, barely any issues can be considered a matter of concern for only one country.  Developments in all spheres of international relations - be it nuclear proliferation, climate change, epidemics and diseases, financial instability, or cyber security - affect the whole world in one way or the other.  Today’s international setting suggests that the world order to which we are used to, based on the principle of the sovereignty of states, needs to be updated in order to...

Jon Huntsman US-Russian ambassador

Jon Huntsman, the former Utah governor and Obama-appointed Chinese Ambassador, was a not the most obvious choice for Trump’s pick as Russian Ambassador. However, if the Kremlin is serious about its hopes to normalize relations between the United States and itself, it should do its best to use Huntsman as a reasonable (friendly might not be possible) voice in President Trump’s ear.   The two qualities most nation-states hope for in a foreign ambassador (not including the obvious fact that they want...

The (First) Russo-American Cyberwar: How Obama Lost & Putin Won, Ensuring a Trump Victory

... all of 2016, Russia’s own media was decidedly pro-Trump and anti-Clinton. Additionally, all throughout the campaign, up to and through Election Day, it is now quite clear that Russia’s propaganda machine of hundreds of websites and many thousands of social media accounts—some unwittingly duped, others complicit or even an army of paid agents—posted many thousands of anti-Clinton, pro-Trump, pro-Russian, and anti-American comments, posts, and stories. Sometimes they amplified ...

To mention again historical precedents, prominent terrorist leaders such as Al-Baghdadi seem amazingly successful at this hide and seek game. It is impossible to forget how Usama Bin Laden evaded - admittedly with surprising effectiveness - the best efforts of the intelligence services of half the world at locating him for more than a decade. Then, conveniently, he was found living the good life very quietly in the backyard ...

The Sino-US relations – Recalibration or Repetition?

“The Chinese grab for fossil fuels or its military competition for naval control is not a challenge but rather a boost for the US Asia-Pacific –even an overall– posture. Calibrating the contraction of its overseas projection and commitments – some would call it managing the decline of an empire – the US does not fail to note that nowadays half of the world’s merchant tonnage passes through the South China Sea. Therefore, the US will exploit any regional territorial...

US election 2016: American reputation at stake

The 2008 US presidential election bolstered the American reputation abroad as Afro-American Barack Obama with humble background was elected the US president. It proved to foreign audiences that the American democracy works perfectly and the American dream evolves. The 2016 US election seems to be not delivering the same or similar message to the world even if the US could see the first female president in its history. An implication of the 2016 election campaign is that it triggers a negative impact...

Walk the Line: Russia as the New Chair of the UN Security Council

October 1st began what could be one of the more interesting Chairships of the United Nations Security Council, with Russia taking over and being charged with a rather delicate balancing act: between conducting the numerous affairs expected to be covered by any standard Chair of the UNSC and deftly handling the ‘special’ relationship with the United States that has recently become woefully deficient. Even more intriguing, some of the most vivid recent examples of that degrading relationship...

Russian Defense Developments in East Asia: An American Perspective

Of late American military commanders and defense planners have consistently expressed concern over the rise of Russian military power. They consider this to be both a threat to the United States and a concerted Russian effort to counter US power. While Moscow and Washington do— and should— view each other first and foremost as nation-states, regional context is necessary for the two countries to better understand each other’s interests. East Asia comprises a unique set of challenges...

Georgians cannot see Abkhazia as a ‘foreign‘ land which was once conquered by them, and the accusation of imperialism usually makes them furious” (Nodia 1998, 19). Jans (1998) sums up the intersection of Georgian and Abkhazian thought, in that after the Cold War they were engaged in a quest for identity since “[d]emocracy, understood ...

Can LNG ensure European security of supply?

Only Henry Hub price (determined by shale revolution, reduced Import, low coal price in the EU and low industrial demand for gas as well as post-Fukushima nuclear dismantlement) remains cheaper, giving the USA additional incentives for export. Today, 53% of the EU (80% in North West EU) gas supplies are traded in gas-for-gas markets that gives reliable price signals thus determining most economic and efficient supply mix.

Russian Gas Projects in the Context of New Paradigm

ISIS’ expansion), as well as the overall strive to develop new energy sources in the view of global warming. That being said, a plummeted oil price (going...

Electing an American President: What the Polls Don’t Tell

American Presidential elections are approaching in November, and are getting more attention than normal this year because of two unusually high profile and controversial candidates: Hillary Clinton (Democrat) and Donald Trump (Republican). Polls as of mid-September suggest a close race. But while polls report voter preferences, it is important to understand that winning also depends on two other issues: first, which voters actually go to the polls, and second, the distribution of those voters by...
