En medio de la absoluta indiferencia de los peruanos y la escasa atención de los medios de comunicación, se celebró en Lima la 52ª Asamblea General de la OEA. Continúa leyendo EDITORIAL: LA OEA ¿Y QUE?
The EU’s path towards a price cap for Russian hydrocarbons seems difficult. A unified reading for 27 countries, with 27 different energy realities, solely on the basis of a political motion, seems hardly credible. The Italian proposal to extend the price cap to all suppliers, regardless of their nationality, is followed by four other countries, while three believe that it should only apply to Russian gas (but this would be a new sanction on Russia, not a political energy saving). As the necessary unanimity did not exist, it was postponed to the mid-October meeting. If it was supposed to be a show of determination and unity, for now it is a sign of weakness and fragmentation.

Two hours of talks with Xi Jinping were not enough for Joe Biden to convince Beijing that it should play a mediating role in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Continúa leyendo Ucraina, la Cina non è vicina
Russian demands for security guarantees were essentially ignored by NATO. Not only have they not been accepted, but the United States has provocatively deployed another 8,000 of its soldiers and their weapons systems in Poland, just to reiterate the US interest in the potential conflict. The basic idea that is maintained in Brussels and Washington is that American and Atlantic Alliance soldiers can go and settle wherever they want, up to the Russian borders, while Russian soldiers cannot even move within their own country. There is a security problem for Ukraine, but not for Russia. This is because Russian security cannot be put on the agenda, since the entire politico-military operation is precisely aimed at a broad and deep attack on Moscow’s political and military stability.

Greatly surprising the international community, Nicaragua has decided to reestablish diplomatic relations with China at the highest level and, in consecuense, break diplomatic relations with Taiwan, which have always been commercial, never political. It is no coincidence that Taiwan has never come out in support of Managua in the different stages of its political action and that it has never tried to pressure its main sponsor – the United States – who has always been reminded that the relationship was only about business. The free zone is the only portion of Nicaraguan territory that interested the Taiwanese, that are now only recognized by 13 countries, apart from the Vatican, of the 197 that make up the entire international community.

Non pare abbiano sortito effetti i colloqui telefonici tra Joe Biden e Vladimir Putin. Quella che si sviluppata al confine tra Russia e Ucraina è una crisi costruita politicamente e mediaticamente. Alla complessiva quanto conclamata ostilità tra Kiev e Mosca non si era aggiunta nessuna particolare tensione e la stessa intelligence militare del regime filo-nazista di Kiev non segnalava nessun pericolo da parte russa.

The electoral campaign has been formally opened in Nicaragua. The civic right presents its best candidates, while the coup right shouts from the rooftops that the elections should not be recognized by the international community. Continúa leyendo NICARAGUA: HACIA LAS URNAS
The attack on the Kabul airport by ISIS K, the Afghan-Pakistani faction of ISIS, presents an unprecedented picture of fleeing occupiers, terrorists targeting terrorists, and the United States that for days has been raising the alarm for an attack. It almost seemed like a prediction. Continúa leyendo AFGANISTÁN: LA GRAN ESTAFA
The disorderly and daring departure of American troops from Kabul has produced substantially unequivocal comments about another American defeat. That’s? Of course, the defeat is political and military, but the big picture is a more complex and articulated reading. The United States, in fact, tried – and failed – to win, but somehow they were more interested in the presence in Afghanistan than in a military victory. Continúa leyendo OPINIÓN: LECCIONES AFGANAS
