We Need a Million More Bowe Bergdahls, Says a Former US Army Ranger | Global politics | Scoop.it
Rory Fanning, a former US Army Ranger in Afghanistan, feels for Bergdahl.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

“To be honest with you,” Fanning said, “we need a million more Bowe Bergdahls. Anybody who has any degree of common sense or moral fortitude would say, ‘This is ridiculous. I’m not gonna fight this war.’”

France: Hatred a la Mode

France: Hatred a la Mode | Global politics | Scoop.it
Zemmour is less a journalist or thinker than a medium through whom the political passions of the moment pass and take on form.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

After the collapse of the Maginot Line in 1940 and the quick end to the drôle de guerre, the great question in France was how to explain what Marc Bloch called "a strange defeat." A similar exercise in retrospective prophecy has now begun and French journalism is focused on little else. What is extraordinary about Éric Zemmour's book is that it was published before the terrorist attacks, but can now be - and is being - read as the chronicle of 17 deaths foretold. Yes, the publication of Le Suicide français was well timed, at least for its author. For France, not so much.

FULL-SPECTRUM CYNICISM: Yemen and the Art of International Subterfuge

FULL-SPECTRUM CYNICISM: Yemen and the Art of International Subterfuge | Global politics | Scoop.it
Encapsulating his view of the essence of politics, Vladimir Lenin famously asked “who, whom”, that is to say, what matters in power relationships is who does what to whom. Under the elaborate trappings of abstract, supposedly universal morals, this brutal and obscene maxim has long been the West’s primary operating principle in international affairs.

Humane Treatment Of Animals Losing Nemo

Enrique Ferro's insight:


Fifty percent of large
fish have disappeared
from the ocean since 1950,
and we’re losing biodiversity
at a staggering rate.

This is serious, the Earth

Израильский историк: Запад закрыл глаза на нацистские марши в Прибалтике

Израильский историк: Запад закрыл глаза на нацистские марши в Прибалтике | Global politics | Scoop.it
В феврале в Прибалтике прошли четыре марша националистов и неонацистов. Россия выступила с резкой критикой, а на Западе постарались попросту проигнорировать мероприятия. По мнению израильского историка Эфраима Зуроффа, 25 лет независимости Прибалтики и почти 10 лет членства в ЕС и НАТО не смогли подтвердить «гипотезу о том, что благодаря таким переменам общества Литвы, Латвии и Эстонии приобретут иммунитет к фашизму, расизму и антисемитизму».

Немецкий политик: Отдавать деньги европейских налогоплательщиков украинским властям бессовестно

Немецкий политик: Отдавать деньги европейских налогоплательщиков украинским властям бессовестно | Global politics | Scoop.it
Фон Шторх подчёркивает, что нарушается 212 статья Договора о функционировании ЕС, согласно которой Евросоюз не может выдавать кредиты бедным странам. Но для того чтобы решение соответствовало формальным требованиям, ЕС просто не называет Украину бедной. По мнению Беатрис Фон Шторх, это «дерзкий, наглый и бессовестный» подход.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Евродепутат также отмечает, что таким образом ЕС выходит за рамки своей компетентности. «ЕС должен обеспечивать мир в Европе, а не вести опосредованные войны», — цитирует немецкого политика Freie Welt.

Fort Russ: NATO promises not to expand East

Fort Russ: NATO promises not to expand East | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Indeed, Russia's collapse and fragmentation was the empire's next step. They were taking their time, Yeltsin was a drunk and easily manipulable, he even depended on the US electoral experts to win his election, and he was surrounded by a bunch of oligarchs ready to sell the country for a pittance, and liberal politicians and economists destroying whatever remained of the Russian economy. On top of that some governors were approached to proclaim their independence from Russia, to begin with Sakhalin...

Yes nobody could even imagine a Putin. How could that even be possible. I remember at the beginning the Western opinion didn't know how to class him. Some sympathetically, at least they saw the shadow of some "respectable" oligarchs such as Berezovsky supporting him, or Yeltsin annointing him. Others, the most, after seeing his determination as a PM conducting the war in Chechnya began to say that he was "dangerous". Dangerous for whom?  Anyway, his quick oligarch-cleaning was quite unexpected, so was his "vertical of power" as far as the regions were concerned, frustrating the desired Russian fragmentation, and certainly the unpredicted economic growth...

Now after the Yeltsin morass I cannot yet grasp how such a "regime change" was ever possible. And an unknown at the helm! The West is still dreaming to switch the clock back and to restart the partition of Russia. Only now they target Russia to destruction. Ukraine was the start (while they mended fences in Georgia), but precisely the quick move over Crimea frustrated their plans. The failure of the sanctions and the European stampede is checking the US "exceptionality". How desperate are the American neo-cons and how weakling is Obama to let them agitate their threats? We'll have to wait and see. They are burning out and they are becoming realy dangerous. Putin and his administration cannot allow itself a single misstep. The beast is stalking.

Trademark Jaw-Dropping US Hypocrisy On Display re Saudi Aggression vs. Russian “Aggression” By Robert Barsocchini

Trademark Jaw-Dropping US Hypocrisy On Display re Saudi Aggression vs. Russian “Aggression” By Robert Barsocchini | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Washington has for months been screaming about Russian “aggression” against post-US-backed coup Ukraine. The screams are never accompanied by any clear evidence (perhaps highlighting why the screaming is so important), which the governments of Germany and other European countries recently announced is for good reason: the claims are merely more of Washington’s characteristic, self-serving distortions.

СМИ: В России к лету на треть увеличится число внутренних авиарейсов

СМИ: В России к лету на треть увеличится число внутренних авиарейсов | Global politics | Scoop.it
Снижение курса рубля и сокращение потока туристов за рубеж привело к тому, что российские авиакомпании начинают борьбу за внутрироссийский сегмент рынка. В летнем расписании количество рейсов по стране вырастет на треть, пишет «Коммерсантъ». Причём не только на курортных направлениях. В то же время, по данным «Известий», президент РФ Владимир Путин поддержал идею обнуления НДС на внутрироссийские перевозки, что позволит сдержать рост цен на авиабилеты.
