– Degradation of Superpower or Obama’s Vitamin Cocktails (Nil Nikandrov, Strategic Culture Foundation). Some instances of hoodlum-like behavior (no other words to describe it) of the United States administration on the international arena could be construed as impotence and a fix of anger impossible to hide. Everything has gone contrary to what had been planned recently. The main thing is that the plans for prompt “retaliatory strikes” against Syria have failed. The data offered by Washington as the testimony to the crimes committed by the Assad’s regime and concocted by the special services of the United States, Turkey and Saudi Arabia was exposed as fake. The ins and outs of the ominous anti-Syrian intrigue and the involvement of Al Qaeda are coming to public spotlight… A wave of revelations is unavoidable. So Washington needs crises on the periphery to deviate the attention of people from its misdeeds – things like public discussions, creating the situations that would produce the effect of propaganda relaxation and could justify some muscle flexing. (…).
– World Balance Reshaped (Nikolai Bobkin, Strategic Culture Foundation). The United States has a custom of putting the countries, which have fallen out of its favor, on the “rogue states” list. Now it risks itself to be subject to international isolation.  The Washington’s world political center status is being lost, the Obama’s policy on Syria has happened to be short-sighted and strategically wrong. The America’s game with “foes of convenience” like Syria and Iran, has failed.  Nobody wants to join the United States in their fight against these states and the US claim to Middle East domination is being rejected more resolutely… (…).
– La via precaria della diplomazia (Lucio Caracciolo, Limes online). Nello stato di crescente anarchia internazionale in cui viviamo, la concezione classica della diplomazia è in discussione. Oggi i dossier più importanti li affrontano personalmente i leader mondiali, non i burocrati alla Ashton. (…).
– Le mani su Sana’a: perché lo Yemen non può essere sovrano (Eleonora Ardemagni, Limes online). Lotta al terrorismo, secessionismi, egemonia regionale e conflitto sunniti-sciiti: Stati Uniti, Arabia Saudita, Qatar e Iran sono i veri attori della politica dell’unica repubblica della Penisola Arabica. (…).
– L’Italia può aiutare a distruggere le armi chimiche della Siria (Massimo Amorosi, Limes online). La Russia potrebbe avere i mezzi per trasportare le armi chimiche di Asad fuori dalla Siria ed eliminarle, ma non andrebbe lasciata sola. (…).
– Osprey vs. Bison in the East China Sea (The Diplomat). China, Japan and the U.S. are ramping up their ability to deploy to disputed islands in the East China Sea. (…).
– Syria Starts Abandoning Chemical Weapons (Richard Johnson, Eurasia review). When the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) enters into force for Syria on October 14, 2013, the country will become the 190th Member State of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), according to the Hague-based global watchdog. (…).
– US Economy Makes The World Go Round Or Rot (J C Suresh, Eurasia review). Though the world is increasingly intertwined, the U.S. plays a unique role in the global economy, accounting for 11 percent of global trade and 20 percent of global manufacturing. The country’s global financial ties also run deep. Foreign banks hold about $5.5 trillion of U.S. assets, and U.S. banks hold $3 trillion of foreign assets. (…).
– The Human Rights Implications of China’s Slowdown (Su-Mei Ooi, Patrick Poon – The Diplomat). China’s economic slowdown will have an adverse impact on human rights. In fact, it already is. (…).
– The (Slow) Rise of Iran’s Women (Faezeh Samanian, The Diplomat).  Gender discrimination is still an issue, especially in high office, but progress is being made. (…).
