Les comparto mi columna Memorando, en Excélsior: Estuve en Sarajevo durante uno de sus episodios más dramáticos, en 1995; me tocó presenciar la agresión en Kosovo, en 1999, cuyo episodio más infame fue el bombardeo de la OTAN contra objetivos civiles en lo que aún quedaba de Yugoslavia, sin respetar escuelas, hospitales, embajadas, instalaciones periodísticas y caravanas de refugiados. http://www.excelsior.com.mx/luis-gutierrez-esparza/2013/07/17/909216 Saludos cordiales.

Newsletter vom 23.07.2013 – Der NATO-Bündnisfall KÖLN/BERLIN (Eigener Bericht) – Aktuelle Medienberichte bestätigen die Einbindung auch des deutschen Inlandsgeheimdienstes in die Internetspionage-Kooperation mit den Vereinigten Staaten.

Also, deeply disturbing, but I think true, former President Carter was quoted in Germany’s leading newspaper as saying that the U.S. is no longer a functioning democracy. A report from an international business journal that you’ll find below and attached carries that story.

Friends, Years ago, Sergey Rogov of the U.S.A and Canada Institute in Moscow spoke at a conference we organized.
