Thorbjørn Jagland destitué de ses fonctions de président du Nobel de la Paix

Thorbjørn Jagland destitué de ses fonctions de président du Nobel de la Paix | Global politics | Scoop.it
Le président du Comité attribuant chaque année le Prix Nobel de la Paix, Thorbjørn Jagland, a été rétrogradé par le parlement norvégien au rang de simple membre du Comité, une décision sans précédent dans l’histoire du Prix.
Le parlement norvégien s’est rendu aux accusations de corruption du président Jagland que nous avions été les premiers à exposer en détail (mais sans évoquer les raisons qui l’auraient conduit dans cette voie).
Les médias qui nous accusé à l’époque de « conspirationnisme »

OpEdNews Quicklink: China's big chess move against the U.S.: Latin America

OpEdNews Quicklink: China's big chess move against the U.S.: Latin America | Global politics | Scoop.it
Latin America is China's latest business buddy. Chinese banks increased investments in Latin America by 71% last year, and the country plans to double its trade volume with the Central and South American region over the next decade. This comes as U.S. power in the Americas is starting to erode. U.S. cash is actually fleeing the region as investors see better deals at home or elsewhere. China doesn't appear as worried about the short-term. "What we're looking at is not simply an economic play. It
Enrique Ferro's insight:

China doesn't appear as worried about the short-term. 'What we're looking at is not simply an economic play. It's an economic play that also has political and strategic undertones,' said the AFP Council.

OpEdNews Article: Article: How Did Syria Get Here?

OpEdNews Article: Article: How Did Syria Get Here? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Wars may be how Americans learn geography, but do they always learn the history of how the geography was shaped by wars? I've just read Syria: A History of the Last Hundred Years by John McHugo. It's very heavy on the wars, which is always a problem with how we tell history, since it convinces people that war is normal. But it also makes clear that war wasn't always normal in Syria.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Important landmarks you left aside, from memory: The French attempts to partition Syria according to the ethnic and religious groups, especially the Druze, who rebelled against the French plan. Characteristically, the French gave to Turkey the Antiochian region in 1939 to buy Turkey's neutrality in WW2: An Arab land (mostly Allawite and Christian - the Christian fled en masse, Merci, la France!) was snatched from the rest of Syria and given to the Turks for the French convenience...

Who profits from European energy alliance without Russia?

Who profits from European energy alliance without Russia? | Global politics | Scoop.it
It will be impossible for Europe to live without Russian natural gas in the foreseeable future
Enrique Ferro's insight:

If the ruling bureaucracy in Brussels forces Member states against their will into a disadvantageous political economy, the club should rather envision exit procedures.

""There are contradictions. The people who rule the European Union want to take the initiative into their hands completely. My personal point of view is that a number of large European countries will not let this happen. As for Hungary, this is an example of how Hungary is protecting its interests in cooperation with the Russian Federation. Hungary may also understand that Brussels will try to put the country into the common European trend. In any case, the cost of energy resources will be a lot higher, so for Hungary it is much more profitable to solve the question directly with Russia."

OpEdNews Quicklink: Scientists Determine the Nation's Safest Places to Ride Out a Zombie Apocalypse | Global politics | Scoop.it
The question was not an uncommon one. But the pursuit of an answer was. Years ago, Cornell University researcher Alex Alemi was paging through some literature on zombies when the wheels started turning. What would happen, he wondered, if there was a real zombie outbreak? He lived in Ithaca, N.Y. How long would it remain secure? Tucked away in the hills of central New York, would it hold out longer than the region's mightiest cities? To be sure, in a country such as ours, where zombies maintain a

OpEdNews Article: Article: Bibi Wants War | Global politics | Scoop.it
Bibi's problem is that he wants war, and Americans want peace. Efforts to get Joe Sixpack riled up over the "existential threat" allegedly embodied by Iran have run into war-weariness -- and, to be sure, an Israel-weariness that really began to show up after the last attack on Gaza, where the news accounts of children under fire from Israeli war planes brought home for the first time the ugliness of the Israeli occupation.
