Factors including China's military modernization, India-Pakistan rivalry and America's "Pacific pivot" all combined to help Asia raise military spending in 2013.

Was hier im Gewand von Wissenschaft daherkommt ist reine Ideologie. Wre sie auf die Vereinigten Staaten beschrnkt, knnte dies der Rest der Welt verschmerzen. Das ist jedoch nicht der Fall. Und so besteht die konomische Freiheit nicht in der Freiheit souverner Staaten, die ihren jeweiligen kulturellen Traditionen und spezifischen gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen gemen Wirtschaftsmodelle zu entwickeln. Vielmehr werden sie durch die Dominanz des Dollarsystems und seine global wirkenden Institutionen gezwungen, das angelschsische Modell der freien Wirtschaft zu bernehmen, fr das sich der Begriff Washington Consensus eingebrgert hat. Dieses Modell wurde nach 1945 zunchst schleichend und nach dem Vertrag von Maastricht mit zunehmender Beschleunigung von der Europischen Union bernommen und ist seit 1. Dezember 2009 kodifiziertes Recht. Damit ist die EU ppstlicher als der angelschsische Papst.

Official Washington’s neocons are busy spinning the latest U.S. failure to negotiate an Israeli-Palestinian peace as an excuse to extend the Israeli occupation indefinitely by insisting that the Palestinians first pass some ever-receding test of quality self-governance, as ex-CIA analyst Paul R.

U.S. pundits decry countries like Iran as undemocratic for having a screening process for candidates to high office.
