The Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite the first to quit EU | Investig'Action

The Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite the first to quit EU | Investig'Action | Global politics | Scoop.it
Europe faces the period of political difficulties brought by the results of British “Brexit” voting and migrants influx which caused enhancing of terroristic attack risks. Such clew of problems will cease the east vector of the EU enlargement. Brussles` initiatives for the former Soviet republics will be declarative to pretend the process of European integration is going on. It seems the heads of the ex-Soviet Baltic countries (Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia) are the most zealous stalwarts of the European integration idea. They support any initiative put forth by Brussels or Washington concerning the Euro-Atlantic integration. But how sincere are in their actions and declarations the politics from these tiny countries?
Enrique Ferro's insight:
“Stubborn denial of obvious things and unwillingness to accept real life” – it is a killing characteristic for a politician that means his professional disability. Multiplied by ambitions and “claims to represent and even dominate EU institutions” such professional disability turns the Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian authorities into dangerous partners suffered with collective Napoleon complex and yearning to subjugate EU global politics to their dwarf-like interests. - See more at: http://www.investigaction.net/en/the-lithuanian-president-dalia-grybauskaite-the-first-to-quit-eu/#sthash.4oFdjRid.dpuf

Poles Disapprove of 'Being Drawn Into Ukrainian Conflict'

Poles Disapprove of 'Being Drawn Into Ukrainian Conflict' | Global politics | Scoop.it
On Wednesday, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko met with his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda to discuss regional issues and cooperation. In an interview with Sputnik, political expert Bohdan Pietka said he was very surprised about Duda's visit to Ukraine.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
An excessive expending in arms and an absurd waste of money in Ukraine add up to the bankruptcy of Poland, which has no actual economy and whose main economic source is made up by the money sent by over 2 million migrants in Europe, and especially in the UK (fragilised by Brexit).

Why Sanders Supporters Won’t Back Clinton: The Gaddafi Emails

Why Sanders Supporters Won’t Back Clinton: The Gaddafi Emails | Global politics | Scoop.it
Bernie Sanders supporters are loathe to support Hillary Clinton for a variety of reasons. Earlier stories on Inquisitr outlined several wide-sweeping reasons
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Hillary Clinton appears to believe that war makes good business. Hillary called Iraq a business opportunity, presumably for oil. For Libya, it was gold, power, and maintaining the Western status quo. Before U.S.-led NATO forces destroyed Libya’s water irrigation systems, the United States created a narrative of Muammar Gaddafi as a brutal dictator who distributed Viagra to troops so they could rape women while snipers killed innocent children. But those stories were fabricated. The truth appears to be that Gaddafi was killed to protect France’s colonial interest in the African continent.

Ankara’s Climbdown on Assad

Ankara’s Climbdown on Assad | Global politics | Scoop.it
Sharp changes in the war on Syria have impacted the policy of the Turkish government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Initially Mr. Erdogan believed that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would fall precipitously. It did not. Rather than overthrow Mr. Assad, the war has placed Turkey itself in danger — a ‘failed coup’ on July 15 came alongside a renewed war against Turkey’s Kurdish population, just as Islamic State (IS) attacks in the country have raised alarm bells about Mr. Erdogan’s adventurism. An adjustment of Turkey’s policy is now on the cards.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
The Neocons’ ferocious and deranged aggressive policy managed to nullify all three Kissingerian geostrategic achievements. In a sense, it has been a fortune for humanity, a proof of the diplomatic ability of Vladimir Putin and a clear indication of the rapacious stupidity of the Clinton/Bush establishment.
