The Korean Nuclear Missile Crisis: It Takes Three to Tango

The Northeast Asian drama involves three main actors: North Korea, the United States, and China. What are the motives behind the key characters in this drama, which more often than not smacks of farce? North Korea is driven by the basic instinct of survival in the face of actual and imaginary threats on the part of the U.S. and South Korea. The only way for Pyongyang to safeguard itself against its external enemies and preserve sovereignty is to have nuclear weapons. The U.S., for its part, is trying to prevent the country which has viewed the former as its main adversary for nearly 70 years, from turning into a nuclear power. At the same time, Washington is pursuing a more fundamental goal: to retain its political and military dominance in East Asia and prevent Beijing from significantly strengthening its strategic positions. Finally, China does not want a war to break out near its borders, and is thus interested in preserving peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

IAEA Low Enriched Uranium Bank Launches in Kazakhstan

This Tuesday, an event took place in Eastern Kazakhstan that did not make the front pages of leading newspapers or the breaking news feeds of international information agencies. Nonetheless, the event’s significance should not be underestimated. On August 29, the International Atomic Energy Agency Low-Enriched Uranium Bank was officially opened at the Ulba Metallurgical Plant in Ust-Kamenogorsk. The date was no accident: on August 29, 1991, the Semipalatinsk Test Site was shut down, and the UN later declared the date the International Day Against Nuclear Tests. The idea of establishing nuclear fuel banks goes back at least 20 years. What is the best way of creating a mechanism that guarantees uranium supplies to countries that comply with the nuclear non-proliferation regime but, due to political reasons, do not yet have access to the global uranium markets?

Permanent Adolescence: The Epidemic That Will Destroy America

As a Humanities professor I have had the opportunity to teach psychology and social psychology for more than 20 years. Occasionally the knowledge obtained in these areas allows me analyze and understand social behavior and certain cultural trends. This is one those occasions. If one is able to observe American society in an objective manner (granted no easy task) it becomes clear that the country is suffering from an epidemic of arrested emotional development (AED). This particular illness is characterized by some combination of: addiction, greed, immaturity, fear, blame, shame, resentments, anger, confusion and suffering. What it means is that the vast majority of Americans are stuck in adolescence exhibiting behavior like lying, negative attitudes, disobedience and disrespect, drug and alcohol abuse, depression, and issues of sexuality.

South Korea responds to Pynoyngyang’s missile launch with ‘overwhelming’ show of force

South Korea has responded to North Korea’s recent missile launch by ordering a large military drill employing F15 fighter jets dropping bombs in an exercise which took place near Taebaek, a South Korean town near the 38th parallel which divides the two Korean states. The exercises were said to be ordered by South Korean President Moon Jae-in shortly after the North Korean missile launch which took place early on the morning of the 29th. According to the chief of North Korea’s Security Council, “We assessed North Korea’s provocations as extremely severe and decided to maintain a vigilant posture in preparation for the possibility of additional provocations by North Korea”. South Korea’s military drills were followed by Japan conducting anti-missile exercises. Japan had previously declared it has the right to shoot down any North Korean projectiles which fly over its territory although this morning, Tokyo did not attempt to shoot down the missile from Pyongyang.

9 reasons Trump’s dream of Russian reconciliation is now impossible

What was once mission difficult is now mission impossible–at least for the foreseeable future. Donald Trump has yet again stated that he seeks to have good or even “great” relations with Russia. Speaking beside Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, Trump stated, “I hope that we do have good relations with Russia. I say it loud and clear, I’ve been saying it for years: I think it’s a good thing if we have great relationships, or at least good relationships with Russia. It’s a big country, it’s a nuclear country, it’s a country that we should get along with, and I think we will eventually get along with Russia”. In spite of Trump’s stated wishes, the policies of his administration, irrespective of who is actually authoring them, are in total opposition to Russia’s stated geo-political goals and Russia’s geo-strategic interests.

US policy towards Iran aimed at pushing it from key players on global oil market — expert

The aggressive policy of the US regarding Iran has the goal to push Teheran from the key players on the global oil market, Azhdar Kurtov, editor-in-chief of the Problemy Natsionalnoy Strategii (National Strategy Issues) magazine and leading expert from the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, said on Tuesday. "Donald Trump is proficient in business and it does not tolerate serious competitors. If we consider this version, than the US policy is aimed at getting Iran out of the key players in the global oil market," the expert said. Talking about Washington’s policy, Kurtov noted that Americans "create crises in different regions of the world and thereby weaken their foreign policy competitors. The US has long been making plans to increase domestic hydrocarbon production and to turn the country from an importer into a weighty exporter of such products...
