German fake neomilitarism or a New East Policy?

As a German I want to address Ajmal Sohail’s blog article on RIAC Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer and her revolutionary foreign policy objectives for Germany „The end of Second World War followed by the collapse of Nazi Germany, US and its allies began to neutralize fascist elements and pressed on denazification (entnazifizieren) of the German society [to be honest the US and its allies have not done their home work properly to denazify the German society if they really denazified the society,…

The final battle for Idlib: Putin bashing for war crimes

The final battle for Idlib: Putin bashing for war crimes

Mainstream media and the editor-in-chief of the Münchner Merkur, South Germany´s most influential newspaper Georg Anastasiadis now want to hold Putin and Assad responsible for all refugee waves and war crimes in Syria. As much as one should reject this massacre from a humanist point of view and also criticize Putin and Assad, the extreme one-sidedness of the reporting is striking, which embezzles and wants to conceal one’s own responsibility and imperialist interests in the Greater Middle East. The fact…

Die Endschlacht um Idlib: Putin-Bashing um Kriegsverbrechen

Die Endschlacht um Idlib: Putin-Bashing um Kriegsverbrechen

Mainstreammedien und auch der Chefredaktueur des MÜnchner Merkurs Georg Anastasiadis wollen nun Putin und Assad für alle Flüchtlingswellen und Kriegsverbrechen in Syrien verantwortlich machen. So sehr man vom humanistischen Standpunkt dieses Gemetzel ablehnen und auch Putin und Assad kristisieren sollte, so fällt doch die extreme Einseitigkeit der Berichterstattung auf, die die eigene Verantwortlichkeit und eigene imperialistische Interessen im Greater Middle East unterschlägt und verschweigen will. Dass Russland und Assad Idlib erobern wollen, ist so folgerichtig, wie die USA Fallujah von…

Das Jahr 2020 wird das Jahr des US-Wahlkampfs sein und die Weltöffentlichkeit wird atemlos zusehen, ob Trump wiedergewählt wird oder nicht und welchen Kurs die größte Supermacht der Welt in den nächsten 4 Jahren einnehmen wird.

Political Risk Distribution of Chinese Outward Foreign Direct Investment

Political Risk Distribution of Chinese Outward Foreign Direct Investment

Author: Qiuyu Gaovan Introduction In recent years, with the dramatic increase in Chinese Outward Foreign Direct Investment (OFDI), the topic on how political risk in host countries influences the locational choices of Chinese multinational enterprises (MNEs) has drawn the attention of many scholars. In this paper, I investigate the political risk distribution (PRD) of Chinese OFDI from 2006 to 2017 using a new measurement on political risk by a composite index (GaoYan 2019)— Political Risk Index (PRI). Meanwhile I use…

USA-China: Phase 1 agreement – what are the other phases? From trade war to offshore control war?

USA-China: Phase 1 agreement – what are the other phases? From trade war to offshore control war?

Some optimists and good people are now trying to interpret the trade agreement between the United States and China as the end of the Sino-American conflict. Observers on German stock exchange television seriously declare that the agreement is now a return to rules-based world trade, while Trump is attacking the WTO to make it clear that the struggle will continue, that it will only take place a bit delayed, and that the agreement is only phase 1, which others are…

USA- China: Phase 1-Abkommen-wie sehen die weiteren Phasen aus? Vom Handelskrieg zum Offshore Controllkrieg?

Einige Optimisten und Gutmenschen versuchen das Handelsabkommen zwischen den USA und China nun als Ende des sinomaerikanischen Konflikts zu interpretieren. Beobachter im deutschen Börsenfernsehen erklären ernsthaft, dass das Abkommen nun eine Rückkehrr zum regelbasierten Welthandel sei, während Trump geade die WTO angreift, um klarzumachen, dass der Kampf weitergeht, nur etwas verzögert stattfinden wird und das Abkommen nur Phase 1 ist, deren andere folgen sollen. Was ist der bisherige Deal. Der SPIEGEL berichtet dazu: „Teil der Einigung ist demnach die Aussetzung…

Why does Thailand’s South remain restless? Wrong politics or culture clash between Buddhists and Muslims?

Why does Thailand’s South remain restless? Wrong politics or culture clash between Buddhists and Muslims?

Author: Dr. Wolfgang Sachsenröder Most of the integration problems in the ethnic mix of Thailand are relatively low-threshold, at least compared to the civil war-like conditions in the troubled south that have been smoldering for decades. However, these have not always been there. They only started to become acute and bloody in the late 1930s and even more intensely from around 1960. The fact that the provinces on the border with Malaysia, Narathiwat, Yala and Pattani, have a predominantly Malay…

Warum Thailands Süden unruhig bleibt Falsche Politik oder Culture Clash zwischen Buddhisten und Muslimen?

Warum Thailands Süden unruhig bleibt Falsche Politik oder Culture Clash zwischen Buddhisten und Muslimen?

Autor: Dr. Wolfgang Sachsenröder Der Vielvölkerstaat Thailand Das Urlaubsparadies Thailand ist einer der vielen südostasiatischen Vielvölkerstaaten, in denen die phänotypischen ethnischen Unterschiede weniger differenzierend wirken als Sprache, Brauchtum und Religion. Für die meisten Touristen sieht die Bevölkerung weitgehend homogen aus, manchmal etwas augenfälliger ist die starke chinesische Minderheit, die aber hervorragend assimiliert ist. Nur rund 40 Prozent der 68 Millionen Thais beherrschen in ausreichendem Maße die Hochsprache , fühlen sich als die echten Thais und schauen mit Vorurteilen auf die…

Falungong: After the „9 comments on the CP China“ now “ How the devil rules the world – the almost total control by the communist ghost“

The Falungong has already published its first book “9 Comments on the CP China”, in which it propagated an end-time struggle between Falungong and the CP China, which was not only an earthly but a cosmological struggle between the forces of light and darkness , because the CP China is a specter that has conspired against the Dao, the nature of man and nature as well as the cosmos. The CCP is more than just an earthly political party; from…

Die Falungong hat schon ihr erstes Buch „9 Kommentare zur KP China“ veröffentlicht, in der sie einen endzeitlichen Kampf zwischen Falungong und KP China propagierte, der aber nicht nur ein irdischer, sondern ein kosmologischer Kampf zwischen den Kräften des Lichts und der Dunkelheit,darstellte, da die KP China ein Gespenst sei, das sich gegen das Dao, die Natur des Menschen und der Natur sowie den Kosmos verschworen habe.

Russia: The Dilemmas of an Underachiever?

Global Review publishes a fourth RIAC contribution by Ivan Timofeev „Russia: The Dilemmas of an Underachiever?“ as we think that the author asks very fundamental questions on the political theory of international relations, realism/neorealism and structuralism and proposes the ideas of international agents as an alternative to structures. The main idea is that traditional realism and structuralism focus only on hard power, not soft power or the domestic fabric of society and the skill of its leaders to act as…

70 years NATO – China for the first time as a „possible threat“

The 70th Anniversary of NATO was marked by many disagreements in the Alliance. Macron’s statement that NATO was brain-dead and needed a policy debate was only one point of controversy, alongside Erdogan’s rapproachment to Russia and his call to brand the Kurdish YPG fighters in northern Syria, hitherto supported by the West, as terrorists. What was surprising about the meeting was that Trump rejected Macron’s comments, pushing for a burden-sharing and higher defense spending by the Allies but attesting NATO’s…
