‘US interest in Kyrgyzstan: Strategy of global dominance’

‘US interest in Kyrgyzstan: Strategy of global dominance’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
Washington has given a human rights award to a Kyrgyz man who was arrested for instigating ethnic strife in his country, in yet another example of the US exerting its strategy of full spectrum global dominance, political experts tell RT.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

 The sentencing came in 2011, several months after the ethnic riots, and secondly, there’s no doubt we’re witnessing an activist for Uzbek separatism being lionized in much the same way as Albanian separatists in Serbia, who were actively involved in the clashes with police and the military in the late 1990s, were being celebrated and feted in Washington as human rights activists and victims of violence.

Anti-Islamic & anti-racism protesters clash in Melbourne, get pepper sprayed by police

Anti-Islamic & anti-racism protesters clash in Melbourne, get pepper sprayed by police | Global politics | Scoop.it
Police in the city of Melbourne used pepper spray to break up scuffles between nationalist supporters from the Reclaim Australia movement, protesting against the Islamization of Australia, and the participants of an anti-racist counter rally.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

One of the organizers of the anti-racist demonstration, Mel Gregson, told RT that both Australia’s major parties use the Islamophobic rhetoric in order to “demonize refugees, and to justify the invasion of countries of the Middle East, to basically destruct people and use Muslims as scapegoats.”

Fort Russ: Ukraine stops paying for children's cancer treatments abroad, bans Russian vaccines

Fort Russ: Ukraine stops paying for children's cancer treatments abroad, bans Russian vaccines | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"Today each child in Ukraine is at risk of death — even anyone who is injured on the street. Because there are not even any tetanus vaccines, necessary for all kids in case of injury. The first thing we should have is tetanus vaccines, to avoid contagion. There are none. Moreover, it is completely unavailable in the country, because it is produced in Russia, and Russian medicine was banned. But nothing new was offered. Hospitals are afraid to accept children because they cannot provide full assistance", — summed up the MP.

Fort Russ: Transcarpathia at the crossroads | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Kiev doesn't think about what it is like when you think you exist, but you are told that you don't. In this environment, Rusyns have lived for more than two decades. As soon as a charismatic personality emerges from the Rusyn society, able to rally Rusyns, the Rusyn movement becomes subjected to repressions, and its leaders are threatened with criminal prosecution (Dmitry Sidor, Peter Getsko).

Enrique Ferro's insight:

 The Iran deal has nothing to do with nuclear proliferation. It’s about gas. It’s about geopolitics. It’s about power. Can’t people see that? Obama doesn’t give a rip about nuclear fuel, enriched uranium, or how many centrifuges you can balance on the head of a pin.  He cares about Empire. That’s all he cares about: American Global Dominance. That’s it. The rest is just hot air.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Both Sierakowski and Zakowski acknowledged that Germany's politics pose a danger to Europe for the first time since 1945. "I have the impression that Germany adopted the wrong strategy not only on the merits, but also from the symbolic point of view. For the first time in my life I've felt that Germany could be dangerous. They behaved with typical German arrogance," Zakowski summed. up.

Fort Russ: Mukachevo - a contraband capital of Ukraine | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The volume of smuggling through Mukachevo is truly gigantic. It's a real goldmine. There is no need for distribution, everything can go to contraband. 

This is why pravoseki are fighting with the local mafia. They fight over who will control the channels of contraband. A very profitable channel,the scale of which is comparable to the purchasing power of entire Ukraine.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

At the April session of the PACE, the representative of Hungary Tamás Gaudi-Nad presented territorial claims to Kiev. He went straight to the point: "Ukraine is an "artificial state, which, in particular, Transcarpathia is part of, which for many years belonged to Hungary." In addition, Gaudi-Nad mentioned the issue of the Transcarpathian Rusyns, who "are not recognised in Ukraine."
