This blog will not be updated for some time. Though still interested in Central and Eastern Europe, I'm now focusing a lot more on the New Great Game in Central Asia, the prospect of resource wars, Peak Oil, the interconnections between British and US foreign policy and the pursuit of secure oil supplies.
This and the emergence of Islamist movements in the West that seek to use the threat of violence in order to empower Muslims through positing an Islamic hyper identity that will force change in places such as Britain and the possibility this could have, when faced with the collapse of Western control over the Middle East, into intractable conflicts.
My contention is that the British government wants to use that threat in order to advance its foreign policy all the more from Libya to Iraq and Afghanistan as part of "Democratic Geopolitics" which has as its ostensible aim the "war on terrorism" but which is more concerned with using this as a pretext to secure oil supplies.
That and other topics as well.
