“Back to the heydays of the global Cold War, what eventually kept the US and the USSR from deploying nuclear weapons was the dangerous and costly struggle called: ‘mutual destruction assurance’. Already by the late 1950s, both sides achieved parity in the number and type of nuclear warheads as well as in the number and precision of their delivery systems.

Both sides produced enough warheads, delivery systems’ secret depots and launching sites to amply survive the first impact and to maintain a strong second-strike capability. Once comprehending that neither the preventive nor preemptive nuclear strike would bring a decisive victory (put a premium on striking first to gain the initial advantage and set the course of the war, by element of surprise and quick assertion), but would actually trigger the final global nuclear holocaust and ensure total mutual destruction, the Americans and the Soviets have achieved a fear–equilibrium through the hazardous deterrence. Thus, it was not an intended armament rush (for parity), but the non-intended Mutual Assurance Destruction – MAD – with its tranquilizing effect of nuclear weaponry, if possessed in sufficient quantities and impenetrable configurations – that brought a bizarre sort of pacifying stability between two confronting superpowers” – Prof. Anis H Bajrektarevic stated in his well-read policy paper on Security structures of Asia and Europe, concluding that: “MAD prevented nuclear war, but did not disarm the superpowers.”

What is the state of nuclear disarmament today? Following lines are giving a comprehensive overview of the efforts in the post-Cold period.

For almost eight years we have been witnessing a decline (or even absence) of Russian and U.S. efforts in the sphere of nuclear arms control, which can be seen at both the official and expert levels. The last achievement in this field was the Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (New Start Treaty) which was signed by Russia and the United States in 2010 and entered into force in February 2011. Since then, issues pertaining to further steps in nuclear disarmament have disappeared from the agenda of Russian-American relations.

In the past, such pauses were filled with active consultations and were used to rethink one’s own policy in this area and comprehensively assess the other party’s position. Preparatory work continued even in the period between the fall of 1983 (when the Soviet Union withdrew from all nuclear arms negotiations with the United States) and the spring of 1985 (when the negotiations were resumed), while informal contacts between the parties (primarily through scientific communities) became much stronger.

Over a period of fifty years, the United States and the Soviet Union/Russia achieved significant progress in curbing the nuclear arms race and gradually and steadily lowering the level of nuclear confrontation between the two major nuclear powers. In the Soviet Union/Russia, the greatest achievements in nuclear arms control were made during the rule of Leonid Brezhnev and Mikhail Gorbachev. Vladimir Putin played an important role in the ratification of the START II Treaty (2000) during his first term as president, as he convinced legislators of its effectiveness and usefulness for Russia’s security interests, and in the conclusion of the Russian-American Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty (2002). Dmitry Medvedev earned a place for himself in the history of nuclear disarmament by signing the aforementioned 2010 Treaty. It was only during the brief rule of Yuri Andropov (from November 1982 to February 1984) and Konstantin Chernenko (from February 1984 to March 1985) that there was no tangible progress in nuclear arms control.

In the United States, all the eight presidents that preceded Donald Trump—from Richard Nixon to Barack Obama—had achievements in this field. It is still an open question whether Trump will want to break with this tradition. In any case, there are several arguments both in favor of and against such a possibility. It should be emphasized that not everything depends on the desire or unwillingness of the U.S. administration to conclude new agreements in this area. Russia’s position has an equal role to play, and this position does not inspire much optimism at the present time.

Politicians and experts name many reasons for the breach of Russia-U.S. relations in the field of nuclear arms control. One of them is believed to be the deterioration of Russia-West relations over the Ukraine crisis. But facts show that the problem arose much earlier. In March 2013 (that is, one year before the events in Ukraine), former chief of the presidential administration of Russia Sergei Ivanov openly said that Russia was not interested in further reductions in armaments and named the reason for that: the completion of the modernization of Russia’s strategic nuclear forces and its unwillingness to eliminate new strategic weapons that had only recently entered service.

Another argument, named by President Putin in February 2012, is the need to involve third nuclear powers in the nuclear disarmament process after the 2010 treaty. Further explanations provided by some other officials, including Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, claimed that deeper reductions (outside the treaty’s framework) would make the strategic offensive weapons of Russia and the U.S. “comparable” with those of third nuclear powers.

Moscow puts the main blame for the failure to achieve new nuclear arms control agreements with the U.S. on the missile defense problem. This problem arose now and then in Soviet times and came to a head in 1983 when President Reagan proposed the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). The SDI slowed down START I negotiations and nearly blocked the conclusion of this and other nuclear disarmament agreements. The United States’ withdrawal from the open-ended ABM Treaty in 2002 and its subsequent efforts to create and deploy missile defense in its own territory and territories of its allies, coupled with unsuccessful attempts to reach agreement with Russia on joint missile defense programs, exacerbated the situation still further.

Moscow also explains the lack of progress in strategic nuclear arms reductions by the possession of nuclear weapons by Washington’s NATO allies. Anatoly Antonov, who at that time was Russian deputy defense minister, said this factor “cannot be ignored.” Other factors that Moscow says should be “taken into account” include the “Global Strike” concept, the deployment of strategic precision-guided conventional weapons, plans to deploy weapons in outer space, the presence of U.S. non-strategic nuclear weapons in Europe, and some other disproportions, many of which are mentioned in Russia’s present National Security Strategy, approved by Putin in late 2015.

Russia’s position on further steps towards nuclear disarmament resembles that of the Soviet Union in the late 1960s. It is based on the principle of “equal security,” which means that all factors determining the balance of power between the opposing sides should be taken into account. This explains why in negotiations with Washington on strategic nuclear weapons, the Soviet Union considered it justified to demand compensation for imbalances in other categories of arms.

Naturally, fifty years ago, the categories of weapons subject to “compensation” were different from those of today. They did not include conventional weapons of any kind. Moscow was concerned about nuclear weapons possessed by the U.S.’s NATO allies, and U.S. forward-deployed nuclear weapons in Europe. Now Russia has taken a broader approach, focusing more on non-nuclear armaments, which creates additional difficulties in the search for mutual understanding with the United States and which calls into question the possibility of concluding new agreements.

If we recognize that Russia’s concern over the effect of missile defense and precision-guided and other conventional weapons on the strategic balance is of a fundamental nature, a natural question arises: How to accommodate this concern if a political decision is made to continue the nuclear disarmament process? And should Russia agree to deeper reductions in nuclear weapons if its concern is ignored?

Needless to say, no agreement on strategic offensive arms can set unequal ceilings on the number of warheads and their strategic delivery vehicles remaining after reductions. That would be at variance with the very meaning of an international treaty, which should be based on the principle of equality of the parties and which should conform to its subject matter.

Nevertheless, there are other ways to accommodate the aforementioned concerns. For example, in the second half of the 1980s, the Soviet Union was very concerned about the SDI program and American nuclear weapons deployed in Europe. This is why a package solution was proposed—simultaneous negotiations on three issues: medium-range nuclear weapons in Europe, strategic offensive arms, and defense and outer space. Moscow put forward a condition that the three planned agreements should be signed simultaneously. Washington did not object. However, the Soviet Union did not adhere to this position for long. At first, the term ‘nuclear delivery vehicles’ was used to designate only land-based ballistic and cruise missiles, while aviation was excluded from the negotiations. Later, Moscow removed this category of weapons from the initial package, after which, in December 1987, the parties signed the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty), which is of unlimited duration.

For a much longer time, almost until all provisions of the START I Treaty were agreed, the Soviet Union insisted on a linkage between strategic offensive and defensive weapons, which was reflected in official statements and the structure of the Soviet delegation to the talks. Moscow sent one delegation to the talks on these two types of weapons. Negotiations on defense and outer space were conducted by a separate group within the delegation. The United States was represented by two separate delegations. One worked on START I, and the other held consultations on defense and outer space. When it became clear that the defense and space negotiations would fail and that the START I Treaty was almost ready, the Soviet Union signed the treaty but made a unilateral statement on the need to observe the ABM Treaty as a condition for implementing START I.

This experience proves that one real way to accommodate concerns is to conclude separate agreements on the most pressing security problems, including missile defense, precision-guided long-range weapons, and space weapons. The authors of World 2035. Global Forecast, published by the Primakov Institute of World Economy and International Relations in 2017, admit of this possibility but consider it the least likely of the proposed four scenarios for the development of the military-political situation in the world in the period until 2035.

Speaking of concrete ways to accommodate concerns, one should assess, at least approximately, the effect of missile defense, precision-guided weapons and space weapons on the Russian-U.S. strategic balance. First of all, let us note an interesting circumstance. When it comes to the effect of various factors on the strategic balance, Russian officials insisting that this effect should be taken into account somehow fail to mention air defense. If we follow this logic, then any weapons capable of combating strategic offensive weapons should be included in the overall balance of power, especially if they are intended to combat retaliatory systems. These weapons definitely include the aviation component of the strategic triad. Without going into further discussion, let us note that this omission of air defense issues seems to be due to some other considerations than a desire to strengthen strategic stability.

Of the remaining three categories of weapons, which, in the opinion of the Russian leadership, have an effect on the strategic balance, space weapons are the most interesting from the point of view of concluding a possible agreement. The fact is, there are no such weapons yet, as far as we know. Therefore, they have no effect on the strategic balance. It is worth recalling the Soviet Union’s struggle against the SDI program in the second half of the 1980s. Many experts said then that “space strike weapons” would be created in the foreseeable future. The most skeptical participants in discussions said that such systems would appear in 20 to 25 years at the earliest. 30 years have passed since then, but this type of weapons (space-based lasers, railguns and other exotic weapons) has not come into existence so far. There are no serious reasons, either, to suggest that space weapons will be in the strategic arsenal of the United States or other countries within the next two to three decades, even if new technologies make this possible. In this case, the following factors will come into play: cost, combat effectiveness of weapon systems, their vulnerability, and possible reaction from the domestic opposition, individual countries and the international community as a whole. These factors may not only slow down but prevent the militarization of space.

In addition, there are no commonly agreed definitions for such terms as ‘weapons’, which can be the subject of an agreement on space issues. Unfortunately, such an agreement can hardly be based on the draft international Treaty on Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space, the Threat or Use of Force against Outer Space Objects, submitted by China and Russia to the Conference on Disarmament in 2008 (and its updated version, submitted in 2014). The draft only proposed preventing the deployment of weapons in outer space and made no mention of prohibiting their development or testing in space. Nor did it mention weapons deployed on Earth but capable of destroying outer space objects.

Criticisms of this document can be continued, but the main problem is whether it is possible to reach a verifiable agreement on limiting or banning space weapons, whatever this term might mean, even if all parties show real interest in it. There are more doubts than optimism regarding this possibility. Answering this question requires more than just efforts by diplomats, the military and developers of space weapons. More experts should be involved in these efforts, including scientists from countries that may be parties to future agreements.

Another interesting question concerns long-range precision-guided conventional weapons and their effect on the strategic balance. According to the majority of specialists, this type of weapons includes cruise missiles, non-nuclear ICBMs, and some weapon systems (for example, hypersonic gliders). As a rule, the degree of effect such weapons may have on the strategic balance is not assessed. Nevertheless, it is asserted that they can not only weaken but also undermine strategic stability. This is a doubtful statement.

If we view these systems from the point of view of strengthening the offensive capability, they are absolutely incommensurable with nuclear weapons in terms of power. Precision-guided weapons are absolutely unsuitable for preemptive strikes for many reasons. Speaking of non-nuclear ICBMs, their accuracy should by far exceed that of nuclear ICBMs. Otherwise, they won’t be able to destroy hard targets (such as missile silos or command centers). According to open source data, modern ICBMs have accuracy (circular error probable – CEP) of several dozen meters, at best. Destroying a hard target with a conventional warhead requires this accuracy of not more than several meters, which is impossible to achieve at the present technological level of these systems.

But this is not the main concern. If an aggressor decides to use precision-guided weapons (conventional ICBMs) in a surprise attack to destroy a significant part of the opponent’s nuclear arsenal, it will have to plan a massive attack. Such an attack cannot go unnoticed due to a missile warning system. There is no guarantee that the attacked party will not use nuclear warning systems when it receives information confirming the attack. So, it does not really matter to the victim of such aggression whether the approaching ICBMs carry nuclear or conventional warheads. The response will almost certainly be nuclear, with all the ensuing consequences.

Finally, one more important argument is that if Russia or the United States decides to deploy a great number of non-nuclear ICBMs, they will most likely have to do this at the expense of their own strategic nuclear weapons. If the 2010 treaty remains in effect (until 2021) and if it is extended (until 2026), all ICBMs will be counted under the treaty’s limits for strategic delivery vehicles (700 deployed delivery vehicles for each party). In order for non-nuclear ICBMs not to be counted under the treaty, one needs to create a new strategic delivery vehicle and prove that this weapon system is not covered by this treaty. This will be very hard to do, given the strained Russian-American relations. Unilateral actions will most likely lead to the collapse of this international agreement.

As regards cruise missiles as an element of precision-guided weapons, one important issue should be clarified above all. Under the New START Treaty of 2010, long-range (over 600 km) nuclear cruise missiles are not counted as strategic offensive arms. In other words, in the opinion of Russia and the United States, they are not strategic weapons. Each heavy bomber carrying nuclear-tipped air-launched cruise missiles is counted as one delivery vehicle and one warhead, no matter how many missiles it may carry. Sea-launched cruise missiles are not covered by this treaty at all. It does not even mention the term ‘long-range nuclear cruise missile.’ Simply put, the parties do not think that these nuclear weapons can undermine the strategic balance; therefore, they see no reason to limit them in the START Treaty. In this case, however, it is completely unclear why long-range nuclear cruise missiles do not affect the strategic balance between the parties, as Moscow and Washington stated in the above-mentioned agreement, whereas similar conventional weapons should undermine strategic stability, especially since some studies show that conventional cruise missiles are not capable of destroying highly protected strategic offensive weapons.

It is believed in Russia that the most serious threat to strategic stability comes from missile defense. However, there is much more ambiguity in this issue than evidence confirmed by practice. First of all, many experts and politicians follow a strange logic when talking about missile defense issues, and their logic differs significantly from the normal perception of the security problem. For example, it is claimed that the U.S. missile defense system “threatens” Russia’s strategic potential. But such a threat can be translated into action only after Russia strikes with ballistic missiles. For as long as these missiles are not used, missile defense does not threaten them. Saying that missile defense poses a threat to someone’s nuclear potential is the same as saying that a hard hat worn by a construction worker is a threat to a brick that may fall on his head.

Opponents of missile defense argue that it will be used after the enemy delivers a first strike against its opponent’s strategic forces, thus greatly weakening the latter’s retaliatory strike. It is this retaliatory strike that will have to be intercepted by missile defense. This abstract and senseless reasoning underlies the logic of missile defense opponents who denounce any programs for creating and deploying missile defense. They view such efforts as an attempt to achieve military superiority and create conditions for victory in a nuclear war. In fact, the entire concept of strategic stability is based on the assessment of the consequences of a first strike and the aggressor’s ability to repulse a retaliatory strike.

Debates over the effect of missile defense on strategic stability have been going on for sixty years, so there is no need to cite here all arguments for and against, set forth in numerous publications. Let us only note that these debates were largely held in the U.S. In the Soviet Union and Russia, an overwhelming majority of experts shared the view that the development of missile defense systems undermines strategic stability, increasing the probability of a first strike in crisis situations and spurring a race in strategic arms in all areas. As a rule, the debates focused on the assessment of effectiveness of missile defense systems and time required for the deployment of new weapon systems.

Now let’s see how the United States can repulse Russia’s “retaliatory strike” after its own “large-scale nuclear attack,” if such plans really exist. First of all, let’s take a look at the geography of U.S. missile defense systems. If the main task of the U.S. were to defend against a Russian retaliatory strike, it would deploy its missile defense system primarily along its borders and deep in its heartland. A thin defense of the country would require at least 10 to 12 deployment areas with several dozen interceptor missiles in each. As far as is known, nothing like this is happening. Such a program does not exist, and such proposals have never been submitted. By the end of 2017, 44 Ground-Based Interceptors (GBI) are to be deployed in U.S. territory (40 in Alaska and 4 in California). By 2025, the number of GBIs is planned to be increased to 56.

It should be recalled here that the most important provision of the 1972 ABM Treaty (from which the U.S. withdrew in 2002) was the limitation of interceptor missiles capable of shooting down incoming ICBM warheads. Each party was permitted to have up to 200 ABM systems in two ABM deployment areas. The Protocol of 1974 to the Treaty limited the number of ABM systems to 100 at each ABM site. In other words, the U.S. has not yet exceeded the limit set by the ABM Treaty and will not do so in the foreseeable future, which means that strategic stability, as understood by missile defense opponents, is not undermined.

Russia is greatly concerned over the proposed missile defense system for Europe and keeps an eye on programs for deploying similar systems in the Middle East and some Asian countries. But all these systems are not strategic in terms of location and performance. Of course, some modifications of the U.S. Standard interceptor missiles, THAAD and some other systems have a certain potential to combat strategic ballistic missiles. But they are not intended to perform such tasks and can shoot down ICBM warheads only accidentally. It is also important that the above BMD systems have never been tested against strategic missiles (warheads); so they cannot be relied on for intercepting retaliatory strikes with strategic ballistic missiles.

In addition, these systems pose no threat to Russia’s strategic potential due to the geography of their deployment. This will be clear if we move from a two-dimensional to a three-dimensional vision of this geography. Simply put, we should be looking not at the flat map of the world, but at the globe. Then many things will look differently. For example, we will see that the shortest way from Russia to America is not via Amsterdam or Paris, but across the North Pole.

To my view, there are no serious military-strategic obstacles to further dialogue between Russia and the United States on more reductions in strategic offensive arms. The effect of precision-guided and space weapons on the strategic balance between the parties is clearly exaggerated. In the foreseeable future, their effect will continue to be minimal, if at all.

U.S. missile defense programs are limited in terms of their impact on Russia’s ability to deliver a crushing retaliatory strike, even if weakened by a U.S. first strategic strike. The latter, too, is a very dubious strategic concept, which, nevertheless, underlies many discussions about ways to strengthen security and so-called strategic stability. No sane leader of a country would rely on an unreliable missile defense system, which has failed many tests and which can be bypassed by changing the direction of attack.

As for political obstacles to new negotiations, they have piled up both in Russian-American and Russia-West relations. They are difficult to overcome, and this will most certainly take much time and effort. There is a view that negotiations on deeper reductions in strategic offensive arms are possible only after relations between the two countries more or less improve or, at least, show a clear tendency towards improvement.

But this problem can be approached from a different perspective by setting the goal of concluding a new agreement on deeper reductions in strategic offensive arms and limiting the number of strategic warheads to 1,000 for each party. If concluded, the new agreement could serve as a positive example of cooperation and give a chance to reach mutual understanding in other areas. This will be facilitated by the beginning of broad consultations on the whole range of security problems, including those that evoke Russia’s concern.

In July 2018 in Helsinki Putin and Trump agreed to pay special attention to the problem of extension of a New START Treaty for the following 5 years (until the year of 2016), as well as to preserving the INF Treaty which became a subject of serious criticism during the last 3-4 years. It is obviously a positive step into a right direction. But it is not enough. Both states have quite a big potential for further reductions of their nuclear arsenals – strategic and tactical as well even without the participation of the third nuclear states in this process. This possible participation needs serious investigation and special attention of all the interested parties.

Eurasia Review: Will China Mend Its Ways After Hong Kong Protests? – OpEd

The massive street march and peaceful protests by the Hong Kong citizens against the extradition law must have rattled the Chinese government, which has quickly suspended the enactment of the law. But, the citizens of Hong Kong do not seem to believe the Chinese government and have insisted that the law should be totally withdrawn. The protest continue even after the suspension of the law by Chinese government. In the last seventy years, the totalitarian regime of China has never submitted itself to the people’s demand and have suppressed any protest movements violently and without observing any particular rule of law. Now, this has not been possible for Chinese government in Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong protests should not be viewed in isolation and should not be interpreted merely as a protest against the extradition law. The extradition law is only spark that ignited the flame of anger against the Chinese government, clearly conveying the sentiments of Hong Kong citizens who dislike being governed by the dictatorship oriented governance of China. The resentment against Chinese government has become obvious now.

When Britain handed over Hong Kong to China under a treaty, the citizens of Hong Kong were never consulted by the British government in any meaningful way. Like handing over a herd of sheep from one owner to another , Hong Kong was handed over to China. Ever since Hong Kong came under the control of China, Chinese government have been slowly trying to tighten the grip over Hong Kong and integrate it with China as early as possible. While physically Hong Kong is now under control of China , there is no emotional integration of Hong Kong citizens with mainland China. This massive protests by millions of Hong Kong citizens clearly prove this.

Earlier, one of the biggest protests against the dictatorial governance of China was at the Tiananmen Square.

The Tiananmen Square protests, commonly known in mainland China as the June Fourth Incident were student-led demonstrations held in Tiananmen quare in Beijing during 1989. The popular national protest movement started on 15 April ,1989 and were forcibly suppressed on 4 June,1989 , when the Chinese government declared martial law and sent the military to occupy central parts of Beijing. In what became known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre. troops with assault rifles and tanks fired at the demonstrators and those trying to block the military’s advance into Tiananmen Square. Estimates of the death toll vary from several hundreds to several thousands, with thousands more people wounded.

While Chinese government successfully suppressed the Tiananmen Square protests, it could not repeat this sort of suppression in Hong Kong now ,since millions of Hong Kong citizens came out on the streets and the protests in Hong Kong have been much more visible to the world community ,compared to the Tiananmen Square protest movement.

Though China is now much more stronger in trade, economy and military strength, it has become vulnerable to the international adverse opinion due to it’s dependence on other countries to sustain it’s economy and trade.

In tackling the Hong Kong protest compared to the way it tackled Tiananmen Square protest, one cannot think that Chinese government has become less ruthless or more human rights conscious.

There have been widespread reports in the international media about the Chinese government move to suppress Islamic movement in China. For decades, the Hui people have enjoyed relative freedom to practice their Islamic faith. But the government’s heavy-handed crackdown on Islam in Xinjiang – the heartland of the mostly Muslim Uygur ethnic group – has recently spilled over into Hui strongholds, including Gansu province, which borders Xinjiang, and Ningxia. While Chinese government has been trying to suppress such protests, it has not entirely ucceeded so far. China knows that World eye is staring at it’s actions in this case.

Earlier, China entered Tibet aggressively , massacred the protestors , drove out thousands of Tibetans including the respected Tibetan leader The Dalai Lama out of Tibet and China is still occupying Tibet with world closing it’s eyes to China’s oppression.

However, the present Hong Kong protest appears to be a turning point and in all probability, Chinese government cannot have it’s way in silencing any freedom movement from oppressed citizens any longer.

China is now aspiring to be a super power in the world and to be successful, it has to mend it’s ways in handling the human rights issues.

Certainly, Hong Kong citizens have taught a lesson or two to Chinese government. Hopefully, this shock inflicted on China by the Hong Kong citizens will make China rethink and mend it’s ways.

The biggest blot on China is it’s continued occupation of Tibet and Tibetans living in Tibet have one or two lessons to learn from Hong Kong citizens.

For the first time Mohammed bin Salman has spoken publicly since a second attack on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, blaming arch-rival Iran and vowing that the kingdom “won’t hesitate to deal with any threat” to its interests.

“We do not want a war in the region… But we won’t hesitate to deal with any threat to our people, our sovereignty, our territorial integrity and our vital interests,” Prince Mohammed said in excerpts published early Sunday of an interview to pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat.

The attacks in the Gulf of Oman sent crude prices soaring amid a tense standoff between Iran and the US. Iran did not respect the presence of the Japanese prime minister as a guest in Tehran and the Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous was carrying highly flammable methanol through the Gulf of Oman when it was rocked by explosions, causing a blaze that was quickly extinguished.

At a G20 meeting in Japan on Saturday: “From a viewpoint of global energy security, it is necessary for the international community to jointly deal with the act.” The Japanese trade minister, Hiroshige Seko, said, In response to the attacks. The US military on Friday published disputing footage released by the US military that purports to show Iranian naval commandos removing an unexploded mine from the hull of one of the crippled tankers.

The UAE’s foreign minister, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, on Saturday called on world powers “to secure international navigation and access to energy.”

The other ship, the Front Altair, has left Iran’s territorial waters, multiple sources. The Norwegian company that owns the ship “all 23 crew members of the tanker departed Iran” and flew to Dubai on Saturday, a spokeswoman for Frontline Management.

The US also blamed on Iran, including the use of limpet mines in the Fujairah attack, he said. He also tied Iran to a drone attack by Yemen’s Iranian-backed Houthi rebels on a crucial Saudi oil pipeline around the same time.

Tensions have escalated in the Mideast as Iran appears poised to break the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, an accord that President Donald Trump repudiated last year. In the deal, Tehran agreed to limit its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of crippling sanctions. Now, Iran is threatening to resume enriching uranium closer to weapons-grade levels if European nations don’t offer it new terms to the deal by July 7.

Already, Iran says it quadrupled its production of low-enriched uranium. Meanwhile, US sanctions have cut off opportunities for Iran to trade its excess uranium and heavy water abroad, putting Tehran on course to violate terms of the nuclear deal regardless.

Eurasia Review: Pope Francis Calls For ‘Radical Energy Transition’ To Stem Global Warming

(EurActiv) — Pope Francis said on Friday (14 June) that carbon pricing is “essential” to stem global warming – his clearest statement yet in support of penalising polluters – and appealed to climate change deniers to listen to science.

In an address to energy executives at the end of a two-day meeting,
he also called for “open, transparent, science-based and standardised”
reporting of climate risk and a “radical energy transition” away from
carbon to save the planet.

Carbon pricing, via taxes or emissions trading schemes, is used by
many governments to make energy consumers pay for the costs of using the
fossil fuels that contribute to global warming, and to spur investment
in low-carbon technology.

The Vatican did not release the names of those who attended the
closed-door meeting at its Academy of Sciences, a follow-up to one a
year ago, but industry sources said the companies represented were
believed to be the industry giants Eni, Exxon, Total, Repsol, BP,
Sinopec, ConocoPhillips, Equinor, Chevron.

A small group of demonstrators gathered outside a Vatican gate. One
held a sign reading “Dear Oil CEOs – Think of Your Children”.

Francis, who has made many calls for environmental protection and has
clashed over climate change with leaders such as US President Donald
Trump, said the ecological crisis “threatens the very future of the
human family”.

He said: “Future generations are about to inherit a very
ruined world. Our children and grandchildren should not have to pay the
cost of the irresponsibility of our generation. I apologise but I would
like to emphasise this: they, our children, our grandchildren will not
have to pay, it is not right for them to pay the cost of our
irresponsibility. In fact, as it is becoming increasingly evident, young
people demand a change, ‘The future is ours,’ the young people shout
today, and they are right!”

“We have failed to listen”

Pope Francis implicitly criticised those who, like Trump, deny that climate change is mostly caused by human activity.

“For too long we have collectively failed to listen to the fruits of
scientific analysis, and doomsday predictions can no longer be met with
irony or disdain,” he said. Discussion of climate change and energy
transition must be rooted in “the best scientific research available
today”.

Last year, Trump rejected projections in a report by his own
government that climate change will cause severe economic harm to the US
economy.

Trump also announced his intent to withdraw the United States from
the 2015 Paris deal to combat climate change, becoming the first country
to do so among 200 signatories.

Francis, who wrote an encyclical – a significant document on Church
teaching – in 2015 on protection of the environment, and strongly
supports the Paris accord, said time was running out to meet its goals.

“Faced with a climate emergency, we must take action accordingly, in
order to avoid perpetrating a brutal act of injustice towards the poor
and future generations,” he said.

“We do not have the luxury of waiting for others to step forward, or of prioritizing short-term economic benefits.”

Oil companies have come under growing pressure from investors and activists to meet the Paris goals.

Companies including Royal Dutch Shell, BP and Total have laid out
plans to expand their renewable energy business and reduce emissions,
though many investors say they will have to do more.

Eurasia Review: Flickering Sky Islands Generate Andean Biodiversity

A new video shows how climate change connected and disconnected
Andean “sky islands” during the past million years. The innovative
mathematical model used to make the video was based on fossil pollen
records and shows how the entire páramo habitat shifted. The model can
predict climate change effects in mountainous regions around the world,
according to an international team of scientists including authors from
the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama (STRI).

The páramo is an other-worldly habitat of stunted shrubs and
alpine plants specially adapted to high winds, cold temperatures, poor
nutrients and limited moisture. It exists in between the upper forest
line, where trees dominate, and the snowline.

“Páramo habitat crept up and down mountain slopes, driven by dry
glacial periods alternated with warmer, humid interglacial periods,”
said Suzette Flantua, former STRI postdoctoral fellow, now at the
University of Bergen, Norway. “Our model reconstructs the connectedness
of páramo habitats in the hopes that it will give us a way to see how
dynamic this system had been, and to test how and why new species
evolved not only in the Andes but in mountainous regions everywhere.”

To visualize how páramo shifted in the past, researchers looked
to a unique fossil record from Funza, Colombia. By driving a 100
meter-long drill pipe into ancient sediments, scientists extracted
fossil plant pollen trapped there, revealing the migration of the forest
line as temperatures changed during a million years.

As the average temperature at Funza fluctuated between 6 and 15
degrees Celsius, the forest line shifted between 1,900 to 3,500 meters
above sea level.

During extremely cool global ice ages, temperatures in the Andes
were 8 degrees Celsius cooler than today. Glaciers spread down
mountainsides, pushing the páramos to lower elevations where they
connected with páramo “islands” from other mountains.

“As the temperature changed we calculated how likely it was for
each island of vegetation to connect to neighboring islands,” Flantua
said. “The unique aspect of this model is that we did that for an entire
1 million-year period producing a continuous curve of merging and
mixing páramos.”

The team used geographical information systems (ESRI ArcGIS 10.3)
and specialized software for estimating connectivity (Gnarly Landscape
Utilities, Linkage mapper and Conefor) to reconstruct the likelihood of
dispersal and migration of plants and animals between páramo islands
even when islands were not yet physically attached to each other.

“This model lets us put current climate change in perspective,”
said co-author Aaron O’Dea, STRI staff scientist. “What we see in the
Andes today is not ‘normal’. Our model puts current climate change in a
million-year context. The paramo are near their historical limits and as
warming progresses, they will be snuffed out as all of the unique
birds, frogs, butterflies and plants are squeezed further up
mountainsides.”

Michael Novakhov – SharedNewsLinks℠: Trump campaign aides sought Russian business deals, Mueller report says

The Robert Mueller report is not just a tale of Trump-Russia links but also a depiction of how political operatives try to cash in on a presidential campaign.

The special counsel’s laborious dissection of various Russian contacts turned out to be Trump principals leveraging their status to try to arrange lucrative consulting contracts.

Trump associates complain that the Mueller report dedicates verbiage to innocent networking that was never tied to the investigation’s main purpose: election conspiracy. The Justice Department’s mandate to Mr. Mueller was to investigate “any links” between Trump and Russia.

Mr. Mueller portrays Carter Page, a onetime campaign volunteer who runs an investment firm, as a businessman seeking new energy deals in Russia during and after the election.

Mr. Page, like other Mueller critics, says the prosecuting team that wrote the report was stocked with biased Hillary Clinton supporters.



“The desperate Democrat liars on the Mueller witch hunt team rank high among the most hypocritical, long-term Washingtonians in the swamp, and that’s really saying something,” Mr. Page told The Washington Times. “I have never sought to make one cent from my involvement in the Trump movement, yet they themselves supported one of the worst and most dangerous criminal cabals in history. A multimillion-dollar operation.”

Mr. Page describes the “cabal” as an alliance of the FBI, Democrats and the news media.

Paul Manafort worked as campaign manager sans salary. His long-term hope was to rekindle a steady flow of cash as a consultant to Ukrainian politicians.

George Papadopoulos, whose maneuverings in London sparked the Trump-Russia investigation, injected himself into the storyline by accepting a $3,000 research assignment from Stefan Halper. The Mueller report said Papadopoulos eventually wanted to meet rich Russians.

Mr. Halper, an Oxford professor tied to the British intelligence community, turned out to be an FBI informant. Mr. Halper, who also ingratiated himself to Mr. Page, has maintained a low profile for months. What he reported back to his handlers remains secret.

In another report anecdote, Rick Gerson, director of the hedge fund Falcon Edge Capital and best friends with Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and adviser, met postelection with Kirill Dmitriev.

The English-speaking Mr. Dmitriev runs Russia’s sovereign wealth fund. He maintains a direct line of communication to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom he calls “the boss.” Mr. Dmitriev is also Mr. Putin’s connection to all things Persian Gulf.

The Russian and New York fund managers came together in late November 2016 via the national security adviser for the United Arab Emirates.

During the transition, Mr. Gerson worked with Mr. Dmitriev on a blueprint for better U.S.-Russia relations. They also talked business: a possible joint investment venture. But talks ended in March 2017, the Mueller report says.

Michael Cohen, Mr. Trump’s attorney turned accuser, immediately hung a shingle in 2016 as the man who could provide, for a price, deep insights into the new White House.

In the end, none of these businessmen was charged with any election crimes. Mr. Mueller said his 22-month investigation failed to establish a Trump conspiracy with Moscow to interfere in the 2016 election.

To arrive at that end, Mr. Mueller investigated Russian contacts relying on testimony, texts, emails, memos, phone calls, and train and plane schedules. The information-gathering produced a Mueller narrative that is heavy on networking and light on election colluding.

“The real purpose of the Mueller dossier … was to help Democrats impeach the president in the absence of any evidence of collusion,” said Rep. Devin Nunes of California, senior Republican on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

“Thus the report includes a long litany of ordinary contacts between Trump associates and Russians, as if a certain number of contacts indicate a conspiracy even if no conversations actually created or even discussed a conspiracy,” Mr. Nunes said.

Here are some significant Trump players whom the media portrayed as the key to finding collusion, but who were basically looking to make money:

Paul Manafort

Mr. Mueller depicts Manafort as a seasoned wheeler-dealer determined to capitalize on his Trump association to rebuild a political consulting business. The prosecutor’s main source is Rick Gates, Manafort’s former partner who made a deal to rat on his boss in exchange for leniency.

The chronicle begins with Manafort visiting candidate Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, and winning a campaign job on the spot.

“Manafort had no meaningful income at this point in time, but resuscitating his domestic political campaign career could be financially beneficial in the future,” Mr. Mueller writes. “Gates reported that Manafort intended, if Trump won the Presidency, to remain outside the Administration and monetize his relationship with the Administration.”

One tactic was to trade polling data for future considerations.

The report said Manafort, an old Republican hand who became Trump campaign manager from March to August, shared polling with his Ukrainian aide, Konstantin Kilimnik.

“Manafort did not see a downside to sharing campaign information, and told Gates that his role in the Campaign would be ‘good for business’ and potentially a way to be made whole for work he previously completed in the Ukraine,” the Mueller report said.

His new status might persuade Ukrainian officials to pay up on $2 million in debts. He also wanted to mend fences with a former lucrative client, Russian industrialist Oleg Deripaska.

Manafort emailed Mr. Kilimnik to make sure his Kiev friends were aware he was now on the Trump team. Mr. Kilimnik responded that “Yesterday I’ve been sending everything” to a Deripaska deputy.

“As to Deripaska,” the Mueller report said, “Manafort claimed that by sharing campaign information with him, Deripaska might see value in their relationship and resolve a ‘disagreement’ — a reference to one or more outstanding lawsuits.”

Manafort earned millions of dollars from Mr. Deripaska in the mid-2000s working for his pro-Russia candidates. Manafort created an investment company funded solely by the oligarch. The fund tanked, triggering estrangement and litigation between Manafort and Mr. Deripaska.

After the Nov. 8 election, Manafort went right to work.

“Manafort instead preferred to stay on the ‘outside,’ and monetize his campaign position to generate business given his familiarity and relationship with Trump and the incoming Administration,” the Mueller report said. “Manafort appeared to follow that plan, as he traveled to the Middle East, Cuba, South Korea, Japan, and China and was paid to explain what a Trump presidency would entail.”

Nowhere in Mr. Mueller’s retelling does the relationship touch on election interference.

Carter Page

Mr. Page ranks among the most conspicuous Trump-Russia figures. A pro-Russia energy investor who worked in Moscow as a Merrill Lynch banker, Mr. Page is the only known target of an FBI wiretap. The bureau interviewed him seven times in 2017.

Democratic Party-financed dossier writer Christoper Steele, in his opposition research, wrongly accused him of various election conspiracies. Mr. Page’s big mistake appears to be his decision to travel to Moscow in early July to deliver the commencement address at the New Economic School.

The Mueller report depicts Mr. Page as a one-man investment shop looking for Russian business.

On his personal Moscow trip, Mr. Page met with an old friend, an investor relations executive at Gazprom, the huge Russian energy firm.

“Page also met with individuals from Tatneft, a Russian energy company, to discuss possible business deals, including having Page work as a consultant,” the Mueller report said.

After his Russia visit stirred negative press stories, the campaign distanced itself from Mr. Page, who subsequently failed to land an administration job.

He traveled again to Moscow in December “in an attempt to pursue business opportunities,” the Mueller report said.

Mr. Kilimnik entered the picture as an indirect Mueller source. He wrote an email to Manafort that said, “Carter Page is in Moscow today, sending messages he is authorized to talk to Russia on behalf of DT on a range of issues of mutual interest, including Ukraine.”

Mr. Page had dinner with New Economic School employees. Stopping by was Deputy Russian Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich. He asked Mr. Page to facilitate links to the presidential transition.

The report narration ends there.

After undergoing months of intense FBI scrutiny, including a year’s worth of wiretaps that allowed agents to pry into all types of communications retroactive to his campaign tenure, Mr. Page faced no charges.

“The investigation did not establish that Page coordinated with the Russian government in its efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election,” the Mueller report said.

Mr. Page told The Washington Times, “The DNC-FBI-Obama administration’s shared end objective of political sabotage proved highly successful and risked the lives of volunteer U.S. intelligence community informants like me in the process.”

George Papadopoulos

The Mueller report suggests Papadopoulos, an energy consultant, always had his eye on business opportunities with rich Russians.

Mr. Mueller spends pages describing the Trump volunteer networking among London’s think tank circles to try to arrange a candidate meeting with the Kremlin. It was Papadopoulos’ alleged comment to Australian Ambassador Alexander Downer that Moscow owned dirt on Mrs. Clinton that prompted the FBI to open the investigation on July 31, 2016.

Russia had hacked Democratic Party computers and began leaking them through WikiLeaks on July 22.

The report also delves into Papadopoulos’ short-term contact with another Trump-Russia celebrity: Sergei Millian.

Mr. Millian is a Belarusian American who promoted business deals at the fringe of the Trump real estate empire. His celebrity came from being named in press reports as a secondhand source for information in the infamous and discredited Steele dossier.

Mr. Millian has denied he was a source for any information. The Mueller report said he resides outside the U.S. Investigators contacted him numerous times, but he refused to make himself available for an interview.

Mr. Millian first reached out to Papadopoulos in July 2016, and soon they were chatting about future business deals.

“On November 9, 2016, shortly after the election,” said the Mueller report, “Papadopoulos arranged to meet Millian in Chicago to discuss business opportunities, including potential work with Russian ‘billionaires who are not under sanctions.’”

The report was quoting a Millian Facebook message to Papadopoulos.

The report continues: “The meeting took place on November 14, 2016, at the Trump Hotel and Tower in Chicago. According to Papadopoulos, the two men discussed partnering on business deals, but Papadopoulos perceived that Millian’s attitude toward him changed when Papadopoulos stated that he was only pursuing private sector opportunities and was not interested in a job in the Administration. The two remained in contact, however, and had extended online discussions about possible business opportunities in Russia. The two also arranged to meet at a Washington, D.C., bar when both attended Trump’s inauguration in late January 2017.”

There the Millian-Papadopoulos account ends.

Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents about the timing and extent of his meetings in London. Once seen as the key to unlocking Russian collusion, he was never charged with any conspiracies.

Michael Cohen

Cohen overtly tried to cash in on his long association with Mr. Trump.

The Mueller report makes brief mention of Essential Consultants LLC, the shell company Cohen set up in October 2016. It was the vehicle for paying $130,000 in hush money to Stormy Daniels, a porn actress who claims a one-night fling with Mr. Trump years ago.

Cohen became a cooperating witness for Mr. Mueller, who sent the Daniels payoff investigation to the U.S. attorney in Manhattan.

Cohen pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance laws as well as tax fraud and lying to Congress. He is serving a three-year sentence at a minimum security prison in Otisville, New York.

After Mr. Trump won the presidency, Cohen turned Essential Consultants into a place to collect millions of dollars from well-heeled corporate heads wanting advice on how to deal with the White House.

The Justice Department authorized Mr. Mueller to investigate the LLC because one corporation had ties to a Russian oligarch.

The Mueller report contains no evidence that Cohen or Essential Consultants was linked to election collusion with Russia.

In June 1969, members of New York City’s gay community fought back against early-morning police raids at the Stonewall Inn in New York City. This powerful moment of resistance marked a turning point in the struggle for LGBTQ equality and led to June being celebrated as Pride Month around the world.


This is the third Pride Month since Trump took office in June 2017. Trump failed to acknowledge the first two, even as he officially proclaimed June to be “National Ocean Month” and “Great Outdoors Month,” among other things. This year, Trump finally managed to acknowledge Pride Month on Twitter: “As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals…. on the basis of their sexual orientation. My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!”



The global campaign Trump boasted about refers to an effort launched in February that is being led by U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, a rare openly gay member of the Trump administration. So far, it is unclear what, if any, effect this campaign is having. On June 11, Botswana’s High Court unanimously overturned 19th-century laws criminalizing homosexuality. But this landmark ruling was on account of a case filed in May 2018, for which Botswana’s President Mokgweetsi Masisi expressed his support later in the year, according to Reuters.




When it comes to Pride Month, Trump’s only “progress” appears to be his casual recognition of it this year. While it might seem like a baby step in the right direction, Trump was sure to cancel it out with an insulting leap backwards. Last year, the Trump administration told U.S. embassies they can no longer fly a rainbow flag during Pride Month without obtaining State Department approval. This year, the administration has denied all such approval requests, according to The Washington Post.


You would think that the United States, site of the Stonewall riots, would take the lead in promoting Pride Month around the world while advancing LGBTQ equality and inclusion here at home. But it has become increasingly clear that America will need to wait for Trump’s replacement to make Pride Month great again.

KAISER MAGGA-MUGGER TRUMP: MAKE GERMANY GREAT AGAIN!

Kaiser MAGGA Trump – Comment to J. Comey’s op-ed in WP – 6:55 AM 5/29/2019

1 Share
Kaiser MAGGA Trump
Comment to J. Comey’s op-ed in WP
I think that Comey is correct. It looks like Trump is engaged in (possibly deliberate) hostile, anti-English Speaking Alliance (see his recent anti-UK & anti-Australia remarks about the subjects of “Barr Investigation”, with the Ukraine thrown in, for the good deceptive measure), PROPAGANDA; with overtly and/or covertly expressed “pro-Axis”: pro-Germany and pro-Japan sentiments, and also some pro-Nazi racial hints, from his symbolic perspectives of the USS WASP, and other dubious optics of his Memorial Day 2019 Japan visit. I think humbly, realizing all the seriousness of this statement, that Mr. Trump might be the “unwitting” or “witting” (this has to be determined) agent or asset of the New Abwehr and German Intelligence, which also corresponds, “rhymes well” with his personal, family history and background; and also, of course, with his “special relationship” with the Deutsche Bank. All these assertions and suspicions have to be investigated very thoroughly.
The Russian subversive activity was and is present undoubtedly, as was stated and demonstrated in Mueller Investigations, but it should be viewed and understood in conjunction and in the light of the not so new, and renewed German-Russian Intelligence and Security Partnership Alliance, so to speak.
The main suspects for the roles of masterminds-culprits, in my humble opinion, appear to be the New Abwehr, German Intelligence, and their high agents: Gerhard Schroeder, Ernst Uhrlau, SPD, Putin, and many, many others; visible and invisible, known and unknown.
If we as the Society and Civilization, do not look into this hypothesis and do not investigate and research it properly, we will commit one of the gravest errors.
Read more about this hypothesis:
Abwehr historically preferred to get engaged in large, spectacular, unbelievably daring operations, and “Kaiser MAGGA Trump” fits this style to the T.

The Interpreter

“Fish and guests might begin to stink after three days, but Assange has reeked from long before he stepped foot in his hideaway cubby across from Harrods. He has put innocent people’s lives in danger; he has defamed and tormented a poor family whose son was murdered; he has seemingly colluded with foreign regimes not simply to out American crimes but to help them carry off their own; and he otherwise made that honorable word transparency in as much of a need of delousing as he is.”
