A Brave New World for the Kremlin / Politics / Russia

By: STRATFOR

Every country faces generational change. Evolutions in technology, culture, social mores and global affairs can leave a gulf between young and old that neither can easily bridge. In Russia, that gulf is especially vast. As of this year, 27 percent of Russians were born after the fall of the Soviet Union, and that number will jump to nearly 40 percent within the next decade. The rising generation was never Sovietized. Most of them, moreover, are too young to remember the tumultuous 1990s, a decade of war, financial crisis and political disarray. Unlike the older generations, they don't recall President Vladimir Putin's promises to save Russia or the measures he took to stabilize the country after its post-Soviet tailspin. In fact, they've never really known life without him. For Putin, the situation poses an unfamiliar challenge.

Russia and Iran Threaten Retaliation Against Further US Syria Aggression / Politics / GeoPolitics

Russia and Iran accused Washington of crossing unacceptable red lines in attacking Syria - jointly saying they’ll respond to further US aggression, according to Reuters.

A joint statement published by the Ilam al Harbi media outlet said “(w)hat America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines.”

3 Graphics That Explain US-China Relations / Politics / China US Conflict

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN : US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are meeting now at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. Most meetings between world leaders are relatively unimportant.

This meeting is an exception, not because of whatever agreements or statements will emerge, but because of what it reveals about the current needs of the political administration of the world’s two largest economies.

US Syria Missile Attack and Symbols of Strength / Politics / US Politics

By: Raul_I_Meijer

I don’t know anything more than anyone else does, outside of the decision makers’ circle, about the reasoning behind the Tomahawk missile attack on a Syrian airport. Have the US neocon warmongers won over Trump and the White House, as I see suggested? Have the Goldmanites? Is that the same group of people? If Trump has conceded to the warmongers, will Putin be next in line? Should Russia have pushed through when it had the upper hand in Syria, and ‘finished’ the job?

US War Of Terror Continues On With Syrian False Flag Attack / Politics / War on Terror

By: Jeff_Berwick

Everything you have been taught by the US government has been a lie.

The US is not the land of the free. It is, in fact, one of the least free places in the world with the largest concentration camp population, per capita, by a large margin and the biggest extortion racket in the world, extorting Americans via the IRS for more than $2 trillion per year.

The US is not the home of the brave. If it were, the American people would not allow the US government to constantly scare them into giving up what freedoms they have left.

What Makes Millennials Disturbingly Different? / Politics / Demographics

By: Gordon_T_Long

In Stealth Fashion Millennials Are Rapidly Transforming Society

Something had mysteriously changed during the 2016 US Presidential primaries when an unlikely democratic candidate burst on the national scene with an unquestionable allure for the Millennial generation. How was it that a 'left wing' Bernie Sanders, who was of an age that he would be considered as a very old grandfather by this young generation, could draw such rousing support? What was it about this grey haired unknown senator from Vermont who so clearly represented the expectations, aspirations and frustrations of this new 'coming of age' generation?

Trump to Fire 50 US Cruise Missiles To Erase Syrian Chemical Attack Air Base, China Next? / Politics / US Military

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It appears President Trump is to authorise the imminent launch of air strikes on Syria towards helping break the narrative that he is an 'Manchurian candidate' working for Putin who played a significant hand in getting Trump elected last year. Perhaps Putin failed to properly calculate whether it really is be better for Russia to have an erratic 70 year old toddler in the White House than a rational continuation of the Obama regime in Hillary Clinton.

4 Maps That Show Why Europe Is Destined for Extinction / Politics / European Union

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN: The European Peninsula runs from Portugal and Britain in the west, to St. Petersburg in the east, and the city of Rostov-on-Don in the southeast. It goes from the Mediterranean and Black seas to the North Sea and Baltic Sea.

Access to rivers, the Mediterranean, and the North Atlantic has let the European Peninsula build trade routes and flourish economically.

EU-UK Trade Will Continue Because Germany Needs It To / Politics / BrExit

By: John_Mauldin

BY JACOB SHAPIRO : British Prime Minister Theresa May has signed a letter officially invoking Article 50. That starts the process of the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union.

Almost a year has passed since 52% of British voters opted to leave the EU. But the process for separation has now been initiated. The next issue is how to understand what will happen during the two years of UK-EU negotiations that lie ahead.

The BrExit War, Game Theory Strategy for What UK Should Do to Win / Politics / BrExit

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The BrExit Story - BrExit is the latest big story for the people of Britain to believe in, a story that has split the population in half between the Remainer's and the Leavers. The BrExit vote was a reaction to the slow dissolution of what was once the world’s most powerful nation into just another bolt on to the European Union Superstate. For Leavers BrExit is seen as a last ditched effort for Britain to resurrect its golden age. So whilst you read part 2 of my comprehensive BrExit analysis, remember that BrExit is just the latest story built on past stories of glory and it won't be too long before we all move onto the next big story, as that is what humans do best, tell stories and believe them to be true, be they religious, political, social, personal, ethnic or economic stories. But today's story is BrExit.

The Syria ‘Chemical Attack’ / Politics / Syria

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Reading up on the Syria ‘chemical attack’ issue (is that the right term to use?). The headlines are entirely predictable, and by now that probably won’t surprise anyone, no matter where they are or what views they adhere to. We know there’s been an attack and that some kind of chemical was used. The media talk about sarin.

They also, almost unanimously, blame the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad for it. But that’s the same government that just this week saw both US Foreign Secretary Rex Tillerson and US UN enjoy Nikki Haley point to a significant shift in American policy, towards a view that removing Assad is no longer a priority in US Middle-East policy.

2 Charts Show Just How Close We Are to US Healthcare Collapse / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

BY PATRICK WATSON : Like it or not, Obamacare lives. The question is, for how long?

President Trump is right when he says the Affordable Care Act will collapse on its own. Its condition is terminal, and Congress declined treatment.

Maybe that’s no big deal to you. Maybe you’re on Medicare, or get group health coverage from your employer, or are independently wealthy, or you’re in good health and confident you will remain so.

What Happens to Britain’s Borders After the Brexit? Potential to Fracture the U.K. / Politics / BrExit

By: STRATFOR

Splitting from the European Union will inevitably strain the United Kingdom's territorial integrity. Those pushing for Scotland and Northern Ireland to secede from the United Kingdom are using Brexit to justify their agendas. Brexit will also open a debate between the central government in London and the country's devolved governments about who will control the powers that will be repatriated from Brussels. With authority over policy areas such as agriculture, fisheries, industry and the environment returning to the United Kingdom after Brexit, the administrations of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will push London to transfer many of those attributions to them.

Revolutionize School Education Globally with ‘Dynamic School Knowledge Banks’ / Politics / Education

By: Dr_R_M_Mathew

Out of millions of students enrolled in thousands of schools every year globally, a few thousand students alone are lucky to have the best schools and best teachers and the others are spoiled without the required Skills, Expertise, Knowledge and Motivation though spend a lot of money, efforts and time . No school is rich enough to engage the Master Teachers and Great Scholars for each and every lesson taught in the classrooms. Half of the children do not have any access to schools and teachers worldwide.  If we follow the conventional mode of education, it may take at least one hundred years to establish schools for all children in the world.

Duterte Under Fire, Philippines 'The Punisher' Takes a Beating / Politics / Asian Economies

By: STRATFOR

Forecast

  • Challenges to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's hold on power, whether in the form of an impeachment or a coup, are unlikely to gain momentum while he remains broadly popular.
  • But China's unrelenting attempts to extend its maritime boundaries will complicate its detente with the Philippines and undermine Duterte's political support at home.
  • Meanwhile, the president's contentious domestic agenda will test the mettle of his ruling coalition.

The American Empire and Economic Collapse / Politics / Economic Collapse

By: Antonius_Aquinas

Despite the widespread hope among libertarians, classical liberals, non-interventionists, progressive peaceniks, and all those opposed to the US Empire that it may have some of its murderous reins pulled in with the election of Donald Trump, it appears that such optimism has now been dashed.  While the hope for a less meddlesome US foreign policy is not completely extinguished and would never have existed had the Wicked Witch of Chappaqua been elected, a number of President Trump’s foreign policy actions, so far, have been little different than his recent predecessors.

The Russia US Election Hacking Fiasco: No Evidence Required / Politics / US Politics

Here’s what bugs me about the Russia hacking story:  Why would the media, whose credibility is already at its lowest point ever, go after Trump when they had no facts to back them up?

Why?

Do the media bosses really think that if they set their hair on fire and run around yelling, “The Russians did it, the Russians did it”, the American people will sheepishly nod in agreement?
