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).

Enrique Ferro's insight:
Neocon Nicholas Kristof's despicable comment in the New York Times says it all: He comes back to the overused "barrel bombs" propaganda to demand an intervention on the Libyan template, which would make of Syria, or whatever remains after 5 years of US-sponsored terrorists' war, a barren land, and in a Hobbessian state of a permanent sectarian warfare. That is the future the demagogues of Empire are demanding, perhaps confidently thinking in a coming Clinton Dynast rule. Thereby they are threatening the future not only of Syria but of all of us. Hopefully something happens which will stop them in their tracks.

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.
