“Ukraine-Gate” and Russia

Issue by Finding a Compromise Solution, then the Russian Leadership Has no Reason to Rejoice at Ukraine-Gate The significance and possible consequences of Ukraine-Gate unfolding in Washington can be assessed in different ways. The suggestion that Donald Trump is trying to use the “Ukraine card” to drive Democrat Joe Biden out of the 2020 presidential race seems absurd to his supporters, but quite convincing to his opponents. Without going into the details of the ongoing scandal, let us try ...


The Side on Northeastern Syria That US Media Keep Dark

Media fail to recognize that the area between Ras Al Ain and Tal Abyad is almost entirely Arab and try to prove that a demographic change is taking place US President Donald Trump took several decisions on the Syria conflict recently, which triggered political and media pressure on him. Most criticism either attempted to score political and media points against Trump or stemmed from motives that have nothing to do ...


Syria after the Turkish invasion

Interesting how Western media and politicians react to Trump’s decision in northern Syria. In addition to concerns that ISIS might regain strength, a new civil war, waves of refugees, and humanitarian disaster, one main criticism was that it would destroy the reliability and credibility of the US and if Trump made similar fickle decisions in the Baltics, Eastern Europe or Taiwan it could be misinterpreted as an invitation by Putin and Xi and could lead to threatening situations even between the major...


Everything on Display

Those who are used to thinking of foreign policy and diplomacy as some sort of ceremonious activity should forget the Congress of Vienna and Helsinki talks.

UN Headquaters: Is It Worth Trying to Move a Cemetery?

... start. Wherever the General Assembly adopted an anti-American resolution or the United States found itself in the minority in the Security Council, people in Washington resumed the debate on whether participation in the UN met the national interests. Donald Trump was born and has lived all his life in New York but he has never idolized the UN. Having become US President, he immediately urged reducing the US contribution to the UN budget.

War Party Rallies to Defend John Bolton

... "very big mistake" for Bolton to threaten Kim Jong-un and his people with references to the "Libyan model." This threat ultimately provoked the breakdown of the second Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi. Igor Ivanov: Why Should We Be Grateful to Donald Trump? Bolton, as one of the architects of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), the neocon gang of unilateralists that pushed for the Iraq war, never met a regime change operation he couldn't support. He is the classic "Ugly American",...


A Europe Whole and Free: A Utopia or, After All, a Future?

Is it high time that we restore the political unity of Europe on the basis of pragmatism? In the euphoria of the peaceful fall of the Berlin Wall long 30 years ago quite a few hopeful predictions were made for restoration of political unity of Europe, for a Europe whole and free, practically as a matter of course. But all those hopes and pan-European enthusiasm, they generated were not to come true. One has to admit, that European elites have proved themselves unprepared, both politically and...


Short Letter vs. Long Telegram: US Ambassador Huntsman Departs Moscow

... ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman is a good occasion to take stock of one of the most difficult periods of Russia-US relations. His appointment came during peak frenzy over the investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the US election and Donald Trump’s “ties” to Russia. The rift between the countries was deepened by other serious disagreements, from Ukraine to Venezuela, which essentially paralyzed relations between Moscow and Washington. At no other time in the history of our bilateral ...


Anti-Trumpers in Shock: Mueller Testimony Proves There Is No Case for Trump Impeachment

The entire fraud of the anti-Trump forces was never supposed to come to light, as they believed that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election Anyone who watched the contorted and confused expressions on the face of former special counsel Robert Mueller during his testimony before two Congressional Committees on July 24, or heard his unsure, evasive, often-stumbling answers to questions, can now see why he had resisted making an appearance before Congress. Despite his resistance, Democratic Congressional...
