DUGIN: The End of Atlanticism and the Rise of the Heartlands

Published 2019-03-13 19:12:11 by Guest Author in Eurasia, France-Eurasia, Germany, Russia

By Alexander Dugin Published on: Mar 13, 2019 @ 19:12 The classical schools of geopolitics recognize a deep dualism between the Civilization of Land (Heartland) and the Civilization of Sea. As Mackinder said, he who controls Eastern Europe, controls Heartland, and he who controls Heartland, controls the world. This idea was subsequently developed by Spykman into “He who controls Rimland (the coastal zone), controls Heartland.’ The fight to rule Heartland – by Sea Power from without, or in the Heartland itself from within – is the main formula of geopolitical history. Geopolitics is the battle for Heartland. In the bipolar world,… Continue ->

Published 2019-03-13 16:50:11 by Joaquin Flores in Albania, Eurasia, Headline-News, Kosovo, Serbia, United-States

BELGRADE – Serbian President Vucic appears to have outmaneuvered the Euro-Atlantic effort to push Serbia into an unacceptable deal regarding any recognition of Kosovo as an independent country. The achievement of a “comprehensive agreement on the full normalization of relations” between the Serbian authorities and the Kosovo separatists has been apparently postponed indefinitely. On March 7th, the “Kosovo Parliament” adopted a platform for negotiations with Belgrade, in which Serbia is actually required to recognize Kosovo’s independence within existing borders and not to hinder its entry into international organizations, including the United Nations. The document also provides for the formation of… Continue ->
