Putin's Scare Tactics - Project Syndicate: "Of course, Russians know enough to worry that Putin has run out of ideas. But that fear does not compare to their dread of what might happen if they rock the boat. And Putin, for his part, understands this well enough to know that he needs no gulags – only the canny use of fear and forgiveness – to retain his grip on power."

The forthcoming strategic review will force the British military establishment to ask difficult questions. It must separate real threats from imagined ones
Somewhere on somebody’s threat list, there may be a small group of British jihadis who want to murder their fellow citizens. As a threat, it is a classic unknowable, but it is likely.
More tangible is the threat from Russia. There were 40 serious military incidents between Russia and western powers in 2014, including “violations of national airspace, emergency scrambles, narrowly avoided mid-air collisions, close encounters at sea, simulated attack runs and other dangerous actions”, according to the European Leadership Network.

Sibling Pairs Can Share Terrorist Ways

1 Share
The Kouachi brothers, who allegedly spearheaded the massacre at the French magazine Charlie Hebdo, are yet another in a long line of terrorist sibling pairs. The Tsarnaev brothers, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan, are alleged as the 2013 Boston Marathon bombers. Of the 19 hijackers on Sept. 11, 2001, six were brothers, with pairs on the same flights. The U.S. government says Hamza and Ahmed al-Ghamdi were on United Airlines flight 175, Waleed and Wail al-Shehri were on board American Airlines flight 11 and Nawaf al Hazmi and Salem al Hazmi helped hijack American Airlines flight 77. And In 2002, three brothers - Ali Imron, Amrozi Nurhasyim, and Ali Ghufron – were named as being responsible for three bombings in Bali. Sibling teams have long been linked to terrorism, analysts say. According to analysts Mia Bloomand John Horgan, at the University of Massachusetts Lowell's Center for Terrorism and Security Studies, the Irish Republican Army, for example boasted several brother teams among its ranks.Other European terrorist groups had siblings or relatives among their ranks. Bloom and Horgan’s paper on the topic of sibling terrorists gives several reasons for siblings to join terrorist groups or plot a terrorist attack. They are likely to share perceived grievances, the authors said. As an example the authors say Palestinian children in a house destroyed by Israel might come away from that experience ready to commit terrorist acts and “may even be deployed for the same mission.” They found that “family members can help sustain both the commitment of participants as well as heighten operational security.” “There’s an echo chamber between, siblings,” Bloom said in an interview “They bounce radical views off each other,” and become more radicalized. Bloom added that family members are less likely to inform on one another and for would-be suicide bombers, each sibling would likely prevent the other from changing their minds. Marc Sageman, author of the book “Understanding Terror Networks,”which profiled 172 jihadists, said that among the people he studied, 20 percent were relatives, and 70 percent were friends. “If you look at the history of political violence, it was mostly small groups of people who know each other before, including relatives who defied the state,” he said. “They develop a common social identity. It happens in gangs, on street corners … any group that categorizes as a group.”

Ruble’s Decline Seen Helping China to Supplant Russia as Dominant Power in Central Asia

1 Share

Paul Goble


            Staunton, January 16 – Most analysts have focused on the impact of the devaluation of the ruble on the Russian economy or on Moscow’s relationship with Beijing, but a group of Chinese economists suggest that the most immediate consequences is that it will help China replace Russia as the dominant power in Central Asia.


            In an article in “Tsnkao Xiosi” covered by Pavel Martynov of the Nakanune news agency, the Chinese experts dismiss the possibility of a Russian economic collapse like that of 1998 because Russia’s reserves are much larger but absolutely and relative to debt obligations and the Kremlin’s power much greater now (nakanune.ru/news/2015/1/16/22383731/).


            Moreover, the Chinese experts say, the devaluation of the ruble will have little impact on bilateral trade between Russia and China because the total turnover between the two countries is small and most of what is being traded is denominated not in rubles or yuan but rather in US dollars. But it will open the way for more Chinese investment in Russia.


            Nonetheless, the Chinese economists say, the devaluation of the ruble will have important geopolitical consequences not so much by making Russia more dependent on China but by allowing China to supplant Russia’s geopolitical influence in Central Asia through the successful carrying out of the New Silk Road strategy.


            Beijing, the Chinese economists say, “must use the current [weakened] situation of Russia in order to strengthen the influence of the Chinese Peoples Republic in Central Asia.”

Putin Restoring Soviet But Not Communist Values, Zubov Says

1 Share

Paul Goble
            Staunton, January 16 – Many commentators suggest that Vladimir Putin is trying to restore an updated version of the Soviet Union and point to his return to many Soviet policies at home and abroad, but it is critically important to understand, Andrey Zubov argues, that people recognize that the Kremlin leader is restoring Soviet but not Communist values.
            In an interview with Lithuania’s Delfi news agency, the Russian historian and former MGIMO faculty member says in contrast to the countries of Eastern Europe, Russia has broken only with communism but not with Sovietism and that unless it does with both, it risks a return to totalitarianism or to decay (ru.delfi.lt/opinions/comments/andrej-zubov-sejchas-dlya-rossii-moment-vybora.d?id=66877896).
            The current Moscow elite consists of “the descendants of those who occupied the Baltic countries and persecuted the opponents of Soviet power.”  Its members have benefitted from the privatization of Soviet wealth, but they were never forced from power and replaced by those who rejected many other Soviet values.
            Today, Zubov argues, Russians face a choice between making the difficult but necessary choice between continuing as they are with the possibility that their country will either decay or restore a new kind of totalitarianism or have the chance to make the progress toward democracy and freedom that East Europeans have.
            That choice has been sharpened by the actions of the Kremlin, on the one hand, and the impact of the declines in oil prices and the ruble exchange rate which have left the Moscow leadership without the resources to buy the population off and thus continue the Soviet-type policies natural too them.
            According to Zubov, “2014 turned out to be the moment of truth” because the issues that were not fully addressed in 1991-1993 “have returned.” Indeed, he says, “we are seeing the return of soviet but not communist values, in the guise of a corporate state of a fascist type … Not a Nazi but fascist type because [Russia] has no racial policy.” Such a state is authoritarian “with inclinations toward totalitarianism.”
            Among his other observations, Zubov points out that the poll numbers Putin has even now reflect not just the fear of repression but the fear Russians have that the country could slide back toward what happened in 1991 and under Yeltsin.  That helps explain what Putin has done in Ukraine: by seizing Crimea, he has reminded Russians of what they think happened in 1991 and thus transformed in their eyes the Maidan into a “smuta” that must be suppressed.
            But now that it has become clear that Putin’s pans to dismember Ukraine fully and replace the Poroshenko regime have been blocked, Zubov says, “the Russian authorities are in a position close to despair and when the economy began to get worse, this despair grew into real horror.”  There is not any optimism in the Kremlin now.
            Putin and his entourage understand something else as well, Zubov says. They recognize that “everything can with unbelieavable speed lead to a social catastrophe,” and as former KGB officers who watched what happened in the USSR, “they now with horror await this revolution,” even though “a revolution is less probable than they think.”
            The reason for that is that there is not an opposition capable of leading one, at least not yet. Consequently, the regime still has a choice: it can turn away from its imperialism in Ukraine and restore ties with the West or it can continue as it is and thus play a role in pushing Russia to “a social catastrophe” and ‘a Russian rising’” against the regime.
            Zubov also provides an intriguing answer to the question of why so many rightwing parties in Europe nonetheless support Putin and his policies.  “In contemporary Western society,” he says, the chief value is the individual” regardless of language or faith. “This is liberalism raised to the highest degree.”
            Indeed, it is unprecedented in the world, and it is not entirely surprising that it has generated a backlash. “The right and also the left appeal to the old values of race, national culture, historical religion, class, the glorious past of their own people and so on. Thus we have a clash of two value systems – one based on the individual and one based on the group.”
            Zubov says that he does not think Russia will risk moving against the Baltic countries because of their  membership in NATO, but for Russian aggression against them to be impossible in future, “or course, there must be a different regime in Russia, one that corresponds to the regimes of Europe and not a post-Soviet regime as now.”
            Russia could play that role successfully, Zubov says, just as post-1945 Germany is now playing a major and positive role on the continent, something that would have been impossible if Germany had not undergone a thoroughgoing de-Nazification process.
            The Moscow historian says that Russia is not a totalitarian state now but rather an authoritarian one in which citizens have some freedoms but one where the regime does not pay any attention to their views when it makes decisions.  That regime has maintained itself by among other things falsification of elections.
            “But now [Russia] stands before a fork in the road – one which leads to totalitarianism of a nationalist-fascist type, with corresponding consequences both for Russia and for the entire world and the other which leads to democracy, a free market and the observance of human rights. The result of the second would be the return of Russia to Europe and of freedom, security and well-being to Russians.”
