Who is really behind Ukraine’s provocation in the Kerch Strait?
The subject of the Ukrainian provocation in the Kerch Strait continues to be at the center of the international agenda. Experts from all over the world agree that tensions are intensifying, however, there are different points of view concerning what pushed Ukraine to conduct such a provocation in the first place
The United States is Calling for a New Arms Race
The American state, engaged in the regular sale of military weapons, is trying to control both its allies, and, at the same time, draw its competitors into a confrontation they cannot win by provoking them to enter a new arms race.
What is the geopolitical identity of Germany?
The Germans are known throughout the world as one of the most economic, industrious and disciplined peoples... however, as much as they are talented at the level of tactics, they are just as weak in the development of strategy
To sit on a bayonet: the limits of consent
When it comes to discussions over what constitutes the real power of the state, many say that the primary factor is the power of the army. Yet, here we might involuntarily recall the famous phrase attributed to Napoleon: "You can do anything with bayonets except sit on them!" This phrase conveys the idea that while a lot can be achieved by brute force and military power, it is not possible for a leader to force his people to do everything he wants: rulers also require the consent and the confidence of the people.

For example, the "New American Century" Project, a non-governmental organization created in 1997 in order to promote the idea of "global domination" in US foreign policy, states the following on their website: "The New American Age Project - is a non-governmental political organization based on the notion that American leadership is a blessing for both America and the world, and requires the following policies of military force, diplomatic vigor and purity of moral principles."

Those leaders who can learn from history will never forget about their people.
Toward an Alternative World Order
The United States currently holds near hegemonic power over the geopolitical sphere, pushing toward a "unipolar world order" based on theses such as "the end of history," and the "clash of civilizations", leaving mankind without hope for a brighter future. The discourse of the "unipolar world" is now associated armed drone attacks in Pakistan, endless internal conflicts in Iraq, and daily shelling in Syria.
