Russia Takes Over the Middle Eastern Arms Market

KA85353

For many years, the Middle East has been a turbulent region, where military clashes and terrorist attacks occur regularly. The Middle Eastern governments pay therefore special attention to security issues and the development of military technologies. It is especially valuable for them to cooperate with Russia in these areas, as Moscow is an established authority in the defense…

Oh No, Not Poland Versus Putin Again!

PN64634

Why is it that every truth voiced by Russian President Vladimir Putin has to be labeled a lie? The recent rumpus over Mr. Putin’s recent comments about Poland’s role in World War II is a perfect example of history modification. What should be facts easy for anyone to discern, have now been transformed into an alternative history that defies truth and logic…

The Coal Industry and its Future

COA342355

Hydrocarbons are part of the foundation of modern civilization, and the production and sale of these natural resources is one of the most profitable businesses. It would be fair to say that any country with hydrocarbon deposits and a highly-developed mining industry can count them as major assets. These days however, some fossil fuels are valued less than others…

Russia-Ukraine Gas Transit Deal Nears Completion

UKR34234

“Just societies cannot be run by big money or armed forces with their too narrow agendas. Limitless desire for wealth and blind ambition must be watched and contained as potential public dangers.” ~ Plato It was a deal that many said could never be done. Why? Because of too much bad blood, as in $125 billion in counter claims between Russia and Ukraine, which made…

United States Beefing Up Competitive Positions of Russian Gas

PIPE342342

In recent decades, owing to Washington’s efforts, natural gas is becoming a fairly dangerous weapon. The United States has been especially active in its desire to dominate the European Union’s gas markets and thereby outcompete the Russian Federation in the last decades. Even in the late 1960s and early 1970s, a number…

Nord Stream 2: Washington to “Free” Europe From Freedom to Decide for Itself

Nord Stream 2 is a pipeline project extending from Russia to Germany that – when completed – will provide a secure means of exporting Russian natural gas to Western Europe – circumventing a  now volatile Ukraine all while tying Russia and Europe together further through mutually beneficial economic activity. Of course, for special…

Putin and the ‘Biden Memorial Pipeline’ to China

SP53453

In early 2014 Washington staged a blatant coup d’etat in Ukraine breaking the historic relationship with Russia and setting the stage for the subsequent NATO demonization of Russia. The one in charge for the Obama Administration of the Ukraine coup was then-Vice President Joe Biden. Today a bizarre Democrat impeachment attempt aimed at President Donald Trump…

Russia Infrastructure Projects – A Year-End Review

SHR3423

It has been a rollercoaster year of US trade wars, the JCPOA dying a slow death, and the world economy sinking toward recession. The good news is my fear of a major war tipping world GNP into a deep recession did not materialize, despite triggers such as the Iranian downing of a US drone incursion. More recently we had the cruise missile and drone…

Could Russia Floating Nuclear Plants Change World Economy?

AL534523

While the EU and United States have all but abandoned nuclear energy as a future power source, with almost no new reactors being built and existing ones being decommissioned, Russia has quietly emerged as the world’s leading builder of peaceful civilian nuclear power plants. Now the Russian state nuclear company, Rosatom, has completed…

BC: The World Passes the US By

432

Now that RT is no longer available on television in Philadelphia, I watch more France 24 than before, when I divided my TV-watching between those two and MSNBC. The difference in offerings never ceases to amaze me, but while ‘Putin’s bullhorn’ tended to focus on non-typical Russian subjects and Americas failings, France’s English language channel…

Meanwhile, BRICS is Alive and Well

BRICS

There’s been no shortage of interest towards the recently concluded ninth BRICS summit in Brazil. This association brings together a total of five countries, with its name being an acronym coined to represent the combined economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. This block represents 23% of the world’s economic output…

Treaty Busters, Why Russia’s Doomsday Weapons May Save Us All

POS32524

A generation of secret weapons exist, some deployed, some in varying stages of development. Remember the 1964 film, Fail Safe? From the book, co-authored by Eugene Burdick (The Ugly American), Fail Safe described the real SAC or Strategic Air Command and its policy of maintaining a fleet of nuclear armed…
