FAIRY-TALE ABOUT EUROPE WITHOUT BORDERS TURNED OUT…MERELY A FAIRY-TALE


Yet, it’s not the worst of it
On the 17th of October EU summit is to take place — primary issue on the agenda of the day is the extension of Schengen zone to the EU freshmen of Bulgaria and Romania. Yet, the latest events have endangered the Schengen extension. Holland and Finland object to that, while all of the EU decisions are made on the consensus grounds.

13 KEYS TO THE WHITE HOUSE



Recent polls indicate that if the U.S. presidential elections took place today, Obama would have lost to both of his Republican rivals: Texas governor Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Mormon governor Mitt Romney.

TURKISH MARCH SOUNDS ALL THE LOUDER



Is Ankara threatening Cyprus with war?
Turkish stirring up at the Middle East, its attempt to scrape up the political fortune at the settlement of Palestinian conflict seems sufficient for solving the foreign-policy goals, which Recep Erdoğan set after winning the elections. Either appetite comes with eating, or the bellicose descendants of Mehmed the Conqueror took an offence for their maneuvers and demarches going unnoticed by the Euro-Union and the USA — be as it may, Turks have started an unprecedented sabre-rattling campaign.

Ten years that shook the world

The last ten years have passed under the sign of this event that changed the global geopolitical configuration and caused two wars. Little-known terrorist organization declared a war civilized world, having launched the processes that are under way even today. Still, no one has managed to guess all the consequences of these events.

“Pre-election America-2012” cycle
The U.S. presidential election campaign is under way. There’s much less intrigue in it than during the last one in 2008. And it’s not even because the Russian campaign also started.

So the most part of action is on at the side his rivals — the Republican Party also known as the Great Old Party (GOP).

ELIMINATION OF THE EURO-ZONE IS QUITE PROBABLE



Polish Minister of Finance warns of such scenario
Crisis of the euro-zone is the talker today. Careless attitude towards the balance of economic indices brought Greece, Spain and Portugal to the verge of bankruptcy. Their membership in the euro-zone has made the situation dangerous for the entire European Union. The EU donor-states, Germany and France, are willing to accept the burden of aiding their troubled brothers-in-arms, albeit setting forth their own conditions. Is the currency union between such economically various states possible at all and will Europe manage saving the euro and the European Union itself?
