EU, UK, Russia and China join together to dodge US sanctions on Iran

Posted by seumasach on September 29, 2018

“What really matters is the fact that the leading nations of the EU have joined the global heavyweights — Russia and China — in open defiance of the United States. This is a milestone event. It’s hard to underestimate its importance. Certainly, it’s too early to say that the UK and other EU member states are doing a sharp pivot toward the countries that oppose the US globally, but this is a start — a first step down that path. This would all have seemed unimaginable just a couple of years ago — the West and the East in the same boat, trying to stand up to the American bully!”

Strategic Culture

28th September, 2018

The UN General Assembly (UNGA) in New York is a place where world leaders are able to hold important meetings behind closed doors. Russia, China, the UK, Germany, France, and the EU seized that opportunity on Sept. 24 to achieve a real milestone.

Petro-Euro, money-debt, banking crisis, real economy: ten years to seal the fate of an economic-financial system

Posted by seumasach on February 18, 2016

GEAB

16th February, 2016

Precisely ten years ago (to the day), in its second bulletin of February 2006[1], warning about the imminent explosion of a «global systemic crisis”, the GEAB based its opinion on the identification of two strong signs: the end of the publication of the M3 money supply indicator[2] (suggesting a start to unusual degrees of the famous “money printing” which everyone has spoken about ever since); and the Iranian oil bourse launch – a country not yet constrained by international sanctions at the time – but a stock market based on the Euro[3]. These two strong signs enabled the GEAB team of that time to say that something big was about to happen, something which was going to bring into question the foundations of the system in which the economic-financial world was living at the time: the petrodollar and money-debt system.

South Stream is NOT dead

China is extending its Silk Road into the Balkans, with a planned project to construct a railroad from the Greek port of Piraeus all the way to Budapest. This would connect Beijing’s primary port of entrance for its commercial goods to one of Central Europe’s main transport conduits, thereby pushing the Silk Road into the heart of Europe and throughout the rest of the continent. As with everything else that China is doing in the world today, it must not be discounted that Russia can also reap some resultant benefits from this as part of the global Russian-Chinese Strategic Partnership, which in this case, would allow for the resurrection of the South Stream project that all of its European partners have been begging for since its cancellation.

China pivot fuels Eurasian century

Posted by seumasach on May 20, 2014

“Meanwhile, a discombobulated America seems to be aiding and abetting the deconstruction of its own unipolar world order, while offering the BRICS a genuine window of opportunity to try to change the rules of the game.” 

Pepe Escobar

Asia Times

A specter is haunting Washington, an unnerving vision of a Sino-Russian alliance wedded to an expansive symbiosis of trade and commerce across much of the Eurasian land mass – at the expense of the United States.

China-Africa to ink 60 agreements during Li’s trip

Posted by seumasach on May 6, 2014

The Chinese government has been battling to address these concerns raised by an unbalanced pattern of trade, even as it finances massive infrastructure projects in the continent. Chinese President Xi Jinping said in February this year that China, which has long been accused of using Africa as a source of natural resources and a market for its goods, will aim to make the continent more self-reliant.

Europe dragged into a division of the world between debtors and creditors: the United States’ desperate solutions for not sinking alone

Posted by seumasach on April 18, 2014

A new cold war led by the USA has become a fashionable theme. However, core US diplomacy has consistently contradicted such a scenario. The USA, more than Europe, needs to reach out to the BRICS for its own salvation. The problem is that vested interests, the imperial state if you like, continue to rely on a strategy of geopolitical tension. But the CIA, the neo-cons, the Israel lobby, the Military Industrial Complex and their congressional representatives have emerged from the fiascos in Syria, Venezuela and Ukraine embittered and weakened. This should enable Obama to pursue policies in accord with US national interests whereby US retreat from empire is rewarded by inward investment from China and others. For that surplus to be available a new motor of global development must emerge which can only be the Eurasian economic space from Shanghai to Lisbon. The resolution of the Ukrainian crisis, the first step of which was completed at Geneva yesterday, will facilitate this happy development. Certainly Russia and China are emerging as leading global players but their prime goal is geo-strategic partnership with the USA. By an agonised path Obama is positioning himself to reciprocate

LEAP 2020

17th April, 2014

In the present confrontation between Russia and the West over the Ukrainian crisis, the image of the Cold War inevitably comes to mind and the media are obviously fond of it. However, contrary to what it gives us to understand, it’s not Russia that seeks the return of an iron curtain but really the US. An iron curtain separating the old powers and emerging nations; the world before and the world afterwards; debtors and creditors. And this in the crazy hope of preserving the American way of life and the US’ influence over “its” camp in the absence of being able to impose it on the whole world. In other words, go down with as many companions as possible to give the impression of not sinking.

Will Egypt form an alliance with Russia ?

Posted by seumasach on November 13, 2013

Voltairenet

12th November, 2013

Should Washington’s decision to interrupt it’s financial aid to Egypt, following General Al-Sissi’scoup d’état, be interpreted as the application of the law banning financial support to political regimes having ascended to power by violating the constitution, or as a consequences of it’s failing economy. This is the question that Thierry Messan had raised in our columns  [1]. If the second hypothesis is correct, then the interruption of U.S. subsidies is comparable to the end of the USSR’s subsidies to its allies, which foreshadowed the fall of the Berlin wall, followed by the collapse of the USSR and the triumph of the United-States.

Le quatrième rencontre pour le « Dialogue Stratégique et Économique entre les États-Unis et la Chine » [1] vient de se tenir à Pékin, les 3 et 4 mai 2012. C’est le sommet bilatéral le plus important au monde, et il en ressort un certain nombre de résultats significatifs, selon China Economic Net [2], ce qui manifeste une détente remarquable, après une étape de brutale détérioration des relations entre les deux puissances.

Why Putin is driving Washington nuts

9th March, 2012

Forget the past (Saddam, Osama, Gaddafi) and the present (Assad, Ahmadinejad). A bet can be made over a bottle of Petrus 1989 (the problem is waiting the next six years to collect); for the foreseeable future, Washington’s top bogeyman – and also for its rogue North Atlantic Treaty Organization partners and assorted media shills – will be none other than back-to-the-future Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Vladimir Putin

29th February, 2012

In the run-up to Russia’s presidential elections, prime minister and presidential candidate Vladimir Putin has to date published a total of seven program statements in which he defines Russia’s niche in a “changing world.” The sixth article on defense policy and army reforms was published by Voltaire Network yesterday. Today we bring to the attention of our readers the latest statement, published Monday in theMoskovskiya Novosti, devoted to international affairs.
