The latest round of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the current carnage inflicted by Israel on all Palestinians in Gaza, will continue for some time and end in another tragedy for the Palestinians. But in the long run, all these events will lead to huge negative consequences that all the people of the Middle East, including the Israelis, will be experiencing for a long time. But while none of the parties in the world will benefit from the disaster, “European countries will particularly pay a higher price for the ongoing conflict,” notes the Iranian publication Tehran Times…

Within hours of Javier Milei’s election win over Argentinian President Alberto Fernández, Latin America’s 3rd largest economic power withdrew its petition to join the BRICS. Scheduled to become a member of the bloc at the start of the coming year, Argentina will shun what Fernández and many financial analysts called a “great opportunity.” The struggling Argentinians will sink with the other nations clinging to the dollar hegemony. For those who question “why” – the reasons are obvious. Who could stand in the wings of such a reversal of fortune for South America’s 2nd biggest economic power?

In this March, at the meeting of the AUKUS block leaders, the leaders of the USA, UK and Australia in their joint statement declared the plan for the further development of the alliance within the framework of which three American NPS, Virginia type, nuclear-powered, will be sold to Canberra. This may become the first case in history when a non-nuclear state will reinforce its fleet with submarines of this type, thereby creating an international precedent. Before this, such submarines have been in service only with five members of the so-called nuclear club: the USA, Russia, UK, France and China…

Notwithstanding that three months have already passed after overthrowing of President Mohamed Bazoum in Niger and coming into power of military servicemen headed by the Commander of the Republican Guard General Abdourahamane Tchiani, the development of the situation in this country still is in the focus of close attention. And it is connected, in the first turn, with the contradictions that arose between the two main external players – France and its senior partner, the USA, with regard to the ways and means of resolving this crisis.  The fact is that, of all the Western countries…

Израильская война в Газе

Whatever your opinion about Israel’s war in Gaza, when the dust finally settles on the battlefields, the world will no longer be the same—unipolar. The deadly Hamas strike on southern Israel on October 7 and subsequent frenzied Israeli response split nations in ways not seen since the US-British invasion of Iraq in 2003. The incident altered the course of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for both parties and beyond. It may be argued, without exaggeration, that the latest war in the Middle East will have thunderous effects, shaking the already weak world order based on the West’s dominance, led by the United States…

The military conflict in the Middle East continues to keep the world diplomatic community on its toes. Israel is still planning a ground operation against Hamas militants and commanders in the Gaza Strip to clean up the territory once and for all. In planning this operation, Tel Aviv ignored numerous calls from various countries and international organizations urging it to refrain from any actions that could lead to a collective massacre of civilians living in this Arab enclave, numbering more than 2 million people. The temporary pause before X-Day is motivated by the need for more thorough preparation…

With the rise of China, so too rises Southeast Asia. Southeast Asia has slowly transformed in terms of economics, infrastructure, tourism, industry, and politically over the last two decades as Chinese influence increases and inevitably displaces US influence over the region. At its height, US influence resulted in a major war spanning two decades, engulfing Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. The US maintained military bases across the region, including in Thailand and the Philippines. However, when the US finally lost its war against Vietnam, it withdrew much of its military…

While ever so new crises and fires rage in a unipolar world—take, for example, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which alone might tilt the world into calamity—the United Nations continues to fail in its efforts to negotiate a deal in Libya, thereby abandoning any genuine attempt to bring the country to peace. The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has been guilty of a number of errors that have progressively harmed the country’s chances of stabilization…

Rob Menendez, a prominent US senator, and his wife Nadine Menendez were charged with corruption around the end of September this year. Menendez chaired the Foreign Relations committee. The indictment claims that Menendez and his wife were given gifts, cash, gold, fancy cars, and other bribes. A lengthy story about how Menendez was recruited by intelligence from a Middle Eastern nation and received gifts and cash through his wife, mostly in the form of gold bars, was published in the New York Times. Federal prosecutors in New York issued an indictment against…

On May 14, Cyclone Mocha, one of the most serious natural disasters of the last ten years, reached Myanmar’s Rakhine State, on the shore of the Bay of Bengal, killing more than 400 people and causing widespread devastation. According to aid workers and local residents, nearly 2 million people living in the state have still not received adequate support from the international community. The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has claimed that only $24.3 million of the estimated…

At the end of July this year, US President Joe Biden announced the allocation of another package of military assistance to Taiwan in the amount of up to $345 million. Unlike previous deliveries, this tranche will become special – free of charge, through a special mechanism of the Presidential Drawdown Authority (PDA). Previously, the PDA format, which allows weapons to be shipped directly from the Pentagon’s warehouses without unnecessary approval from Congress and bureaucratic procedures, was used only for military…

In mid-August as Ukraine’s offensive remained stalled on the battlefield, Russian officials claimed the US was pressuring Southeast Asia to transfer Soviet-made arms to Ukraine. In a TASS article titled, “US twists arms of Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia to send Soviet weapons to Kiev — top brass,” it was claimed that the purpose of doing this was to “prolong the conflict in Ukraine by all possible means.” The development reflects a much larger problem the US and its allies face as they continue encouraging Ukraine to fight Russian forces…
