the greatest geopolitical catastrophy..

21-03-2015

The greatest geopolitical catastrophy has been the appointment of Vladimir Putin to succeed Yeltsin as President of Russia. For doubters and appeasers: read the attached Budapest memorandum of 1994 in which Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States confirm the inviolability of Ukraine's borders and its terrirtory in exchange for the de-nuclearisation of Ukraine.

This week Putin celebrated the annexation of the Crimea: that is to say he celebrated a clear and recognized act of aggression against Ukraine and against an agreed memorandum signed by all states mentioned.

The weak reaction against this aggression, a year ago, by the U.S., and the EU, apparently were an open invitation to Putin to continue his aggression against the Ukraine. The two armistices, the second one with Germany and France included among the signatories, may have temporarily postponed further aggression, but not ended it.

The so-called European peace order is in shambles; further appeasement of the French and German kind will not stop further aggression, on the contrary!

For the study of international relations, knowledge of the history of Western Cooperation in the Twentieth Century is essential.

European Unification into the Twenty First Century

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The story of European Unification is fascinating. In 1950, two sworn enemies – France and Germany – decide to seek reconciliation and European federal unity. As a first step, they created the European Coal and Steel Community together with Italy and the Benelux countries. The fathers of this new Europe were visionary persons. Does today`s student or scholar still know who Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, Alcide de Gasperi or Willem Beyen were and what they stood for?
