Washington Again Underestimated the Iranian Mind

New Eastern Outlook
Published time: 10 February, 2016

Washington foreign policies these days are dominated by a bizarre kind of political sado-masochism, not unlike the argument given by the CIA that torture such as waterboarding is a successful, legitimate way to extract invaluable intelligence from an enemy combatant. Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo come to mind. The war-makers like CIA head honcho John Brennan or Victoria Nuland at the State Department, or neocon Ash (as in ashes of war) Carter at the Pentagon seem to be convinced that to be a great nation, first you must be “hard cop,” beat the daylights out of your target person or nation. You sanction them to the point of breaking economically. Then you flip sides and go “soft cop.” Their silly CIA and military torture handbooks tell them this works every time. Only problem, it doesn’t. This is definitely true with several nations today who resist the bully hard cop-soft cop games of Washington. What Iran is doing in terms of pricing its oil export sales is an example ...

Is China Being Wooed by Fantasies of Western ‘Acceptance’? Target China

Is China Being Wooed by Fantasies of Western ‘Acceptance’?

NEO - New Eastern Outlook:
Published time: 8 February, 2016

In the area of finance and creation of new financial institutions much hope of many nations has been placed on China. Last year China played a catalytic role in helping establish a new BRICS Infrastructure Development Bank to finance infrastructure projects in select emerging economies. Soon after Beijing announced it was creating another Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) to finance a part of Asia’s huge infrastructure deficit. Now as the details of the just-launched AIIB become clearer, and as the Washington-based IMF appears finally eager to embrace China with larger voting rights, the question is whether Beijing is being seduced by a desire to be included in the “family” of the Western hegemon powers, the USA and the EU, the “Great White Masters.” ...

New Eastern Outlook
Published time: 3 February, 2016

Sometimes profound tectonic shifts in the global politics arise from least noticed events. Such is the situation with Iran and the recent visit to Teheran of China’s President Xi Jinping. What emerged from the talks confirms that the vital third leg of what will become a genuine Eurasian Golden Triangle, of nations committed to peaceful economic development, is now in place. Now Iran, Russia and China have all indicated a will to cooperate that has the potential to change the current Western course of wars and destruction in favor of peace and cooperation.

India Pakistan Detente Can Transform Eurasia, Europe

Published time: 31 January, 2016

In recent months, India’s dynamic new president Narendra Modi and Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif have opened first tentative steps in the direction of resolving some 70 years of border tensions. Were the two great Eurasian nations to come into a political and, eventually, economic harmony, it could change the geopolitical map of wars and chaos in the world dramatically for the better. It would be the key to the emerging Eurasian heartland of the countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, where both countries are recent members. It would cause severe cardiac disorders in London, New York and in Riyadh ... To read further, click here

What’s Really Going on With Oil?

NEO - New Eastern Outlook:
Published time: 24 January, 2016

If there is any single price of any commodity that determines the growth or slowdown of our economy, it is the price of crude oil. Too many things don’t calculate today in regard to the dramatic fall in the world oil price. In June 2014 major oil traded at $103 a barrel. With some experience following the geopolitics of oil and oil markets, I smell a big skunk. Let me share some things that for me don’t add up ... To read further, click here

China, Russia challenge the ‘Navy Second to None’

New Eastern Outlook
Published time: 21 January, 2016

The United States’ leading military planners following the Spanish-American War of 1898 studied carefully the imperial model of their English-speaking cousins in Britain. After 1873 as the British economy sank deeper into what they called The Great Depression, men like Junius Pierpont Morgan, the most powerful banker in America, Andrew Carnegie, her largest steelmaker, John D. Rockefeller, her oil monopolist—America’s first oligarchs—realized that for the United States to rival Britain as the world power numero uno, she would have to have a “navy second to none.” That US naval dominance may soon fade into the pages of past history.

Travails of a Bankrupt Hegemon

Slightly more than seven decades ago, when the United Nations was officially founded in San Francisco, there was no question in the world about who was the Great Power, the World Hegemon. Today the situation has radically altered to the severe disadvantage of Washington and her ability to dictate terms to the rest of the world in economics, politics, and the greatly-misused expression “human rights and democracy-building.” That disadvantage may, ironically, be a blessing in disguise for us all ...

'The United States is de facto bankrupt' - William Engdahl

Radio Sputnik
Published time: 15 Jan, 2016

Russia has taken steps that could potentially destroy the existing Wall Street oil monopoly for a huge part of a market – writes William Engdahl - a political observer for New Eastern Outlook. Last November, Russia’s Energy Ministry announced its plans to start test-trading of a new Russian oil benchmark. According to Engdahl, the move, seen by many as a minor step, could bring about huge implications for oil markets. If it succeeds, the Russian crude oil benchmark futures traded on country’s exchanges will price oil in rubles and no longer in US dollars. In the longer term, it could not only decouple Russia’s economy and get it off the oil hook, but also put an end to dollar hegemony To read further / Listen, click here

There is a very positive news coming out of Paris, a city with more than her share of bad news lately.
