Failed Kosovo project: people leaving, but NATO demands met

Failed Kosovo project: people leaving, but NATO demands met | Global politics | Scoop.it
Although the EU and NATO have delivered nothing to Kosovo in the way of prosperity, being there still meets the criteria of allowing expansion further east, Serbian affairs commentator Marko Gasic told RT.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

We had scenarios in the past of crises in Kosovo which have been manufactured. But the main thing is that the ordinary person seems to have no future in a place which is riddled with corruption, crime from drug trafficking, from forced prostitution, organ trading. There is nothing of a viable industry in Kosovo at the moment which is the situation that the people are reacting to.

Les incendiaires crient au feu, par Manlio Dinucci | Global politics | Scoop.it
Entreprise sous un prétexte humanitaire fabriqué de toutes pièces, la guerre contre la Libye n’est pas terminée. Une fois abattue la Jamahiriya, tué sous les bombes 120 000 Libyens (chiffres de la Croix-Rouge Internationale) que l’on prétendait protéger, puis lynché Mouamar el-Kadhafi, une fois vidé le pays des deux tiers de sa population, le travail ne fait que commencer.

UK media demonizing Russia as ‘guilty’ of daring to resist US Empire

UK media demonizing Russia as ‘guilty’ of daring to resist US Empire | Global politics | Scoop.it
The demonization of Vladimir Putin and Russia by the British political establishment and media has never been as intense as in the wake of the recent Ukraine peace talks in Minsk.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The characterization of the Russian leader has been so off the scale it is hard to imagine anyone being naïve enough to take it seriously. When he’s not being compared to Hitler, an especially offensive caricature for historical reasons, he is being accused of harboring ambitions of forging a ‘Russian Empire’.

That such accusations stem from a nation whose government has played a key part in reducing Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya to a state of chaos in recent years, a consequence of the UK’s attachment to Washington’s brutal and disastrous assault on the Arab and Muslim world, only makes them all the more hypocritical if not downright noxious.
