Depuis la prise de pouvoir par la Révolution iranienne en 1979, le monde se dresse contre l’Iran parce qu’elle est une « République islamique » qui refuse de reconnaître la domination des USA sur le Moyen-Orient et le reste du monde et de s’y plier. J’évoque le monde parce qu’après cette révolution, il y a eu a pérestroïka russe et la chute de l’empire soviétique, une superpuissance qui faisait contrepoids aux USA.

Europe is finally coming to its senses five years after the coup in Kiev started what is now the new Cold War between Russia and the West. The first part of Russia’s win comes from Italian leader Matteo Salvini. Speaking for the under-represented in European politics, Salvini declared this week, “I continue to believe that we don’t need sanctions.

Aleksandar Pavic - Where to start with today’s Balkans… Now, or almost three decades ago, when the victorious West decided, as its strategic and ideological foe disintegrated, that it could fearlessly flout the post-WW II international order standing on the key pillars of respect for the territorial integrity of states and non-interference in their internal affairs as laid out in the UN Charter and the Helsinki Accords, and went about the bloody business of breaking up Yugoslavia (with Germany taking the lead). So, yes, the seeds of today’s intractable instability were indeed sown at the start of the last decade of the 20th century.

The elections for the European Parliament will be set between two fundamentally different views. Liberal politicians have turned it into a campaign against extremism in the form of nationalism, just like Hillary did in her notorious speech about the “deplorable” – a frivolous slur that backfired and antagonized a great deal of voters. Now a similar language is being used in Europe: it is either us or them.
