Armenian News Network: Geopolitical Games Around `Greater Circassia'

Geopolitical Games Around `Greater Circassia'

Geopolitical Games Around `Greater Circassia'
 | GULEVICH Vladislav (Ukraine) | 28.12.2010 | 15:12
 Russia Turkey USA
 Judging by the fact that several US research centers are studying the
 genocide allegedly suffered by the Circassian people and doing what
 they can to put together a basis for the independence of Circassia,
 the `Circassian problem' features permanently on Washington's
 humanitarian agenda.Research in Circassian history and the relations
 between Circassians and Russians is conducted at Rutgers University in
 New Jersey (est. 1766). The University's Center for the Study of
 Genocide,Conflict Resolution, and Human Rights is looking into a
 variety of conflicts - the genocide of Kurds in Iraq, the `genocide'
 of Ukrainians allegedly perpetrated by Russians during the 1933 famine
 - which the US Administration regards as deserving the genocide
 status. As a general tendency, Washington discerns genocide in the
 regions where it plans to gain a foothold. The Kurds were entrained ...

KC: WikiLeaks. Americans Created Global Network For Intelligence Gathering

WikiLeaks. Americans created global network for intelligence gathering

Publication time: Today at 12:33 Emirate time 

Leaked cables show that the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has been transformed into a global network for intelligence gathering and eavesdropping worldwide, PressTV reported.

According to the classified documents published by WikiLeaks, the DEA has expanded far beyond its mandate to engage in intelligence gathering, The New York Times reported. 

One cable reported that Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli asked the DEA to use its wiretapping program and help him spy on political opponents.

Martinelli sent a "cryptic" message to then US Ambassador to Panama Barbara Stephenson, which said, "I need help with tapping phones." 

"He made reference to various groups and individuals whom he believes should be wiretapped, and he clearly made no distinction between legitimate security targets and political enemies," the cable written by Stephenson said. 

When the US ambassador refused to pay much heed to it, Martinelli made an implicit threat to stop helping Washington with anti-narcotics operations in the Latin American country. 

Meanwhile, President ...

Carnegie Endowment: Moscow Riots: More To Come?

Moscow Riots: More to Come?


Carnage hit Manezh Square in central Moscow on the eve of Constitution Day, demonstrating that the serious problems in society, expressed in the relationship between the public and the authorities, have reached a boiling point.

The Moscow riots raised many issues, but I will focus on two aspects: political and managerial. Both are very important; the former sets the context, while the latter provides the framework.

Is it possible to call what is happening in Moscow mass unrest? Yes, you could say that, but at the same time, this unrest demonstrates the system’s viciousness, a situation in which life is guided not by the law, but by how it is interpreted. Under this arrangement, the law is not equal for all, and it is normal for closely held businesses and ethnic groups to "buy off” the police. If the other side has nothing to back it up, then the conflict usually ends there. But this time ...

RFE/RL: As Russia Claims Democracy, Is It Redefining The Word?

As Russia Claims Democracy, Is It Redefining The Word?

Does Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's talk of aspirations to "universal democracy" change anything on the ground?

December 27, 2010
By Charles Recknagel
As a new decade begins, is Russia ready to go beyond being a hyphenated democracy to becoming a real one?

One might think so, listening to President Dmitry Medvedev's keynote democracy speech this year. The occasion was the Yaroslavl Global Policy Forum in September, where he argued forcefully that Russia fully subscribed to the universal standards of democracy. He said that if Russia fell short of those standards, it was only because democracy is still new in the country.

"I strongly oppose those who think that there is no democracy in Russia and that authoritarian tendencies prevail here. It is not so," Medvedev said. "Russia is undoubtedly a democracy. It is young, it is immature, it is imperfect, not experienced, but it is a democracy nonetheless."

Medvedev's rhetoric was attention-getting because it suggested the Kremlin is abandoning its long-standing argument that Russia ...

KC: France And Germany Blocked Plan For Georgia's Accession Into NATO

France and Germany blocked plan for Georgia's accession into NATO

Publication time: 27 December 2010, 12:09 

France was ready to give a positive signal to Georgia at the NATO summit in Bucharest, although it opposed granting Georgia a MAP plan (action plan for NATO membership). This is stated in the materials published by Wikileaks.

As noted in the documents, such a position of France was due to the following factors: concerns regarding creation of tense relations with Russia, a desire to define the territorial boundaries of NATO and a concern on domestic issues in Georgia relating to separatist regions.

France argued, and continues to argue that "NATO must not create new dividing lines, and that territorial conflicts must be resolved before joining the organization". It is to be recalled that recently Nicolas Sarkozy confirmed this French position.


In connection with the aforesaid, France opposed a proposal by the U.S. government of a visit to Georgia by the North Atlantic Council simultaneously with the Secretary General's visit in early October.

The letter also said that France considered the question if ...
