After five years of civil war in libya, the new unity government is to consolidate its position of power in tripoli, reports martin gehlen. “ten municipalities along the west coast have said on the first day of your support, just like the guards from three major marine oil ports. as a little later on, the financial powerful guided tours of central bank, national ölverwaltung and a central investment authority followed, gave up the previous islamist government in tripoli and stepped back. they wanted to ‘avoid further bloodshed’, stated in the official notice. up to the latter its representatives had tried to block the establishment of the new unity government in the capital. you refused the head of government al-sarraj, the permission to land and threatened to arrest him on the spot. however, the majority of citizens think otherwise. it has the nose fully from the chronic chaos of constant violence and economic misery.”

Michael meyer-resende of the berlin-based non-governmental organization democracy reporting international (dri) recommended the establishment of a federal state in syria. “the concern is that a federalization will write the current fronts fixed. in addition, the mistrust is to limit large drag forces in the middle east since the british and french designed by the sykes-picot agreement in 1916 and the region.”

The surprisingly positive opinion of scientists about the degree of destruction of historic sites in the syrian city of palmyra was amazing, writes rolf stucky in the neue zürcher zeitung. “up to the conquest of palmyra. by the is, the syrian department of antiquities and several documented to the rescue of the syrian cultural heritage, concerned ngo every single mortar strike and each in the european and american art trade missing palmyrene relief to right with the greatest of care. the more surprised you not heard now from these instances, causing the destruction are said to be ‘not so serious’ and you intend to close the wounds by the reconstruction of the monuments as quickly as possible. (…) because of what we have experienced since the spring of 2015, and now in a couple of blurry video footage seen, it appears to be completely missed, to assess the damage to the palmyre niches monuments with terms such as ‘half as bad’.”

Matthew bodner writes that low oil prices might have contributed to the re-escalation of the conflict over nagorno-karabakh between armenia and azerbaijan. “azerbaijan is frustrated with the de facto occupation of its sovereign territory, but changes in domestic politics are the major driver on the azeri side. the collapse in global oil prices has hit the azeri economy hard and president ilham aliev is under pressure to pursue victories in karabakh. ‘was is the best distraction,’ says simon saradzhyan, a fellow at harvard university and native of karabakh. (…) the good news is that russia has far more ability to influence the situation than turkey has. it has strong economic ties with both baku and yerevan, and is home to strong diasporas from both countries. azerbaijan is also a large buyer of russian arms, spending around $4 trillion in recent years. russia is pushing for both sides to lay down their arms and set the terms for a renewed cease-fire.”

Russia is apparently on track its strategy for the pacification of the conflict in syria to implement, writes gwynne dyer. the goal was from the beginning, before the russian intervention that had begun to destabilise the military stalemate again, and the “moderates” to convince the rebels of the necessity of political compromises. “the negotiators for these ‘moderate’ groups are still demanding the departure of assad from power as the price of a permanent ceasefire. they haven’t a prayer of getting such a sweet deal, but the russians are putting pressure on assad to come up with a formula of words, however vague, that will persuade the ‘moderate’ to accept amnesty and come in from the cold without losing too much face. (…) russian president vladimir putin’s goal was to isolate the islamists and reconcile the rest of the rebels with the assad regime, and it is well on the way to accomplishment. it will not be a happy ending for any of the groups involved in the syrian civil war, but it is the least bad outcome that can now be realistically imagined.”

Michael o’hanlon and sean zeigler believe that the stabilization of syria blue helmets would be after a peace agreement only with the posting of un-successful. early confessions for this step could improve the chances of success of the negotiations in geneva is crucial. “the writing is on the wall: we will almost surely need a peace operation, under the auspices either of the un or nato and the arab league, if any ultimate deal is to succeed. all of the variables present in syria’s tangled conflict suggest that, however the war may end, it will reignite without a viable external entity. (…) syria need not be america’s third big war of the twenty-first century in the middle east; indeed, it should not be. but to have a chance of solving that acute threat to regional security — and to deprive isis of what is still its most compelling and important sanctuary in the world today — america needs a new strategy that includes willingness to contribute (in at least some capacity) to a substantial postwar military operation to stabilize the country.”

Crispin rovere holds the prospect of u.s. presidential candidate donald trump-rich, according to an analysis of its foreign policy positions for a representative of the realistic school of thought. as role models trumps, he called former president nixon and his influential security adviser and foreign minister, kissinger. the realistic attitude trumps will, especially in its position towards nato significantly. “trump says nato is obsolete, and complains bitterly that america does all of the heavy lifting. (…) in his book, crippled america, trump is clear that the rise of china is the single greatest challenge to america’s place in the world; immediately in terms of trade, but in the future as a direct hegemonic challenge to american primacy. trump knows that policy settings must change if the u.s. is to be competitive in this long-term strategic rivalry, and that burdening the american taxpayer with being the policeman of the world’, including through its outsized nato commitment, is not conducive to that effort. (…) imagine this hypothetical: trump meets putin and secretly agrees to dissolve nato entirely. instead, a new pan-european security architecture will be established focused on counter-terrorism – one that includes russia as a member. in exchange, the territorial integrity of the baltic states is categorically affirmed, russia agrees not to further test the european borders, and to instead ‘pivot to asia’ itself with regard to its security posture. such a coup would ensure trump what is counted among the greatest foreign policy presidents. it would, therefore, do nixon and kissinger proud.”

How would react to europe on an exit of the usa from the nato alliance? stefan soesanto writes that such a “radical” step would lead to the exits of canada and turkey. the remaining european countries would then have to consider how you want your security to re-organize. “the best-case scenario would lake nato’s remaining european members continue to consolidate a ‘european’ alliance, by striving for greater interoperability and increased defense spending, to compensate for the absence of u. s. armed forces, capabilities and forward-based equipment in europe. this new alliance framework — let’s call it the european treaty organization (eto) — will probably maintain an ever closer relationship with the european union until both organizations merge over time. (…) the worst-case scenario would be if nato simply dissolves itself and the european union is unable to fill the institutional void. the result would be a mixture of bilateral and multilateral military alliances, based not on economic interdependence, but formed according to geographic proximity, cultural affinity, threat perception, relative military power and existing defense arrangements on the continent. (…) while all these scenarios are hypothetical, and some might be more realistic than others, nato’s contribution to the stability of europe and the security of the united states should not be underestimated. if nato were to dissolve, the unintended consequences could be far-reaching.”

The focus of a northern european approach to security will be on nato and less on a nordic security community, writes jannicke fiskvik of the technical and scientific university of norway (ntnu) in trondheim in your paper for the center for security studies of the eth zurich. “a possible nato-accession of finland and sweden is discussed in both countries, violently, an actual accession is not expected in the foreseeable future, but to. both governments have been studies on the possible effects in order, however, seem not ready to take the from of a candidate resulting confrontation with russia. a turning point could best be ushered in by a military aggression of russia in the baltic states.”

Luke coffey and james carafano insist that nato is the usa still of great importance. the reason is the threat to europe by russia. however, it should focus the alliance on its actual mission. “nato’s role in the 21st century needs to be back to the basics, with territorial defense as its primary goal. nato does not have to be everywhere in the world doing everything all the time. rather, it needs to be capable of defending its members’ territorial integrity. while many nato members are confronting terrorist groups such as the islamic state, nato is not the organization to counter islamist terrorism. this is because, as an institution, it is designed to counter territorial threats.”

The former british diplomat alastair crooke writes that the west with its sanctions policy guide for years to have a “hybrid war” against foreign-policy rivals. the excessive use of financial and economic sanctions have led to the fact that countries such as russia and china are to develop effective counter-measures in the form of alternative institutions. “the tables are turning: in fact, the u. s. and europe may be becoming more vulnerable to retaliation (e. g. europe, with russia’s retaliatory sanctions on european agricultural products) than china and russia are, to unilaterally treasury or fed warfare. this is the new hybrid was (and not the hot air issuing from nato). [u. s. treasury secretary jack lew] and [david ignatius of the washington post] know that a parallel ‘architecture’ is under construction, and that congress’ addiction to new sanctions is just speeding it into place.”
