United States and Russia

15-10-2016

Attached is an important analysis on the decay of Syria. It should remind many commentators, that President Obama's decision not to bomb Syria in 2013 (cf. Obama Doctrine on this website) was after all the wisest decision. Yes indeed, Russia wants to be recognized as a super power and is bombing its way into that status over the ruins and victims in Aleppo, to end up with a foothole not in Assad's Syria and the Middle East but in mountains of rubble. The other game of breaking communication with the U.S. and even interfering in the U.S. election campaigns, will also be self defeating. One does not earn a lasting reputation as a major power by bombing and supporting the wrong clients.

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?

Western Cooperation

The third volume reviews the broader history from America’s entry in the First World War in 1917 and the start of the American Era in international relations one hundred years ago, to the inauguration of President Trump in 2017.
