Waging War Against Russia, One Pipeline At a Time

While the human politics of the crisis in Ukraine garner all the headlines, it is the gas politics that in many ways lies at the heart of the conflict.

Indeed, the energy issue has not only framed much of the economic dimensions of the crisis, it has revealed the deep divides that exist among the political and business elite of Europe who, despite their bluff and bluster about Russia’s actions in Ukraine and the expansion of sanctions, understand quite clearly that Russia is an integral part of Europe’s economic future.

However, that hasn’t stopped the West and its proxies and clients in Eastern Europe from attempting to undermine Russia’s strategic economic position through a variety of means. From derailing negotiations over pipeline construction to using puppet governments as a wedge between Moscow and Europe, the US and its allies have attempted to undermine Russia’s economic and strategic position vis-à-vis gas delivery infrastructure, while simultaneously strengthening their own.  (Read entire article)delimeter3

US Foreign Policy and the Polish Blowjob

June 26, 2014 at 6:43 PM

http://youtu.be/6orUvZHF91EEric Draitser of StopImperialism.org appears on RT to discuss the political fallout from the release of a recorded conversation in which Polish Foreign Minister Sikorski made some revealing statements about Polish attitudes to US policy on Ukraine, NATO, and Eastern Europe.  Draitser explains that the comments reveal deeper divides within the trans-Atlantic partnership with countries and business interests becoming ever more skeptical of US plans in Ukraine and beyond.  Draitser also notes that Poland is an integral part of NATO’s expansionist policy and US attempts to menace Russia with a “missile shield” among other things.

Washington’s provocations are driving Russia, the world’s top energy exporter, and China, soon to be the world’s largest economy, into a deeper economic and political alliance, said Eric Draitser, of StopImperialism.org. “It would seem a self-defeating strategy,” said the independent political analyst. “But, the reality is that the United States doesn’t have control anymore. Obama and his blundering foreign policy have provided the impetus” for closer Sino-Russian collaboration, which can only increase with development of a “New Silk Road stretching from China all the way through Turkey and into Europe.”delimeter3

Obama, Gitmo, and ‘American Exceptionalism’

Yet another scandal has engulfed the Obama administration, as the President has come under fire for his prisoner swap that secured the release of the only US POW remaining in Taliban custody.

However, the real scandal is not whether Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is a hero or a traitor, but rather the fact that the US – purportedly the “land of the free” – detains prisoners indefinitely, denying them any legal process.

In fact, under President Obama (a constitutional scholar), the practice of indefinite detention without trial or legal counsel, has been codified into US law. Perhaps this is what Obama means when he waxes poetic about “American exceptionalism” – the exception to the rule of law, the exception to international law, the exception to human rights?  (Read entire article)delimeter3
