Donald Trump, Salesman for the Merchants of Death

According to the establishment media, President Trump’s whirlwind tour of Asia was about commerce, jobs, and fair play in trade. Instead, the primary focus was the sale of arms to South Korea, Japan, and Vietnam. Both China and North Korea were used as a selling point. The White House National Security Council ran the sales pitch. In Japan, Trump said he expects Abe Shinzo’s government to buy, as he put it, massive amounts of armaments. He said pretty much the same while in South Korea and Vietnam. The sales will generate billions of dollars in profit for Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Northrup Grumman, Boeing, and other merchants of death. Trump’s cover story is that the large uptick in arms sales in Asia will reduce the cost of the US keeping soldiers in host countries and create jobs at home. For the merchants of death, escalating tension is good news for stockholders

Russia Goes Caribbean

In the fifty-sixth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Izvestia, Kommersant, Vedomosti, and Ekspress Gazeta. He discusses the increased political and economic cooperation between Russia and the governments of the Caribbean states as a Russian long-term response to the U.S. meddling in Eastern Europe. He also discusses the press conference that the Russian president Vladimir Putin gave at the recent APEC summit in Vietnam and his praise of the U.S. president Donald Trump. In addition, Professor Kovacevic addresses the rumors about the potential break-up of the Russian state-owned natural gas and oil giant, Gazprom. Lastly, he examines how the first Russian foreign minister after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Andrei Kozyrev, a well-known pro-Western liberal, is seen in Russia today, including by the president Putin.
