*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- While Europe commemorates the Atrocities of Deadly and Destructive World Wars of the Past, at the 100th Anniversary of the End of WW1 (1918-2018), both Regional and Global Peace is at Stake in the current USA's "Mid-Term" Elections (6/11/2018)...


France and Germany have just launched in Strasbourg an original March towards Paris' forthcoming World Forum for Peace, practically at the eve of USA Mid-Term Election, while waiting for Trump, Putin and around 60 Leaders, as well as UNO's Secretary General Antonio Guterrez, to arrive at that exceptional Rendez-vous.


---------------------------------------------------


Just 2 Days before an US Mid-Term Election exceptionaly Important for Peace in Korea/Nuclear, Syria and even Ukraine Issues, EU core's Franco-German couple marked a landmark Symbolic Top Event in Strasbourg's emblematic Cathedral, with Presidents Macron and Steinmeier, by kick-Starting a Longue March through Strasbourg's Region and other former Bordelines between the two Core EU Countries, for the Memory of the End of a devastating 1st World War, a Century ago (1918-2018), leading up to a Macron - Merkel meeting at the Historic Compiegne Castle, where the Armistice of 1908 had been Signed, the Week-End of November 11, near Paris, which awaits Next Sunday more than 60 Heads of State/Government from Europe and allover the World, invited by the French President, including USA's new President Don Trump, Russia's President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angie Merkel, UNO's Secretary General Antonio Guterrez, (etc), for a Joint Ceremony at the Arc of Triomphe, and a brand New International Paris' 2018 "Forum", now dedicated to "Peace".


Tha Word means a lot here, particularly accross those Borderline Areas of Former very Deadly BattleGrounds, and, Timely comming in the run up to May 2019 European Elections, it Naturally underlines EU's main Achievement, during more than 60 Years (1945 - 2018), to Help Saveguard Peace in Europe, after 85 Years with a Franco-German War and Two World Wars (1870-1945), which Killed many Millions of People, and provoked Immense Destructions, making also Europe lose its Historic 1st role in the World until then.


--------------------------------------------------------------


But Nowadays Global Peace is also at Stake in the Korean Nuclear Arms' Issue, where spectacular Progress recently made by Trump and Kim at Singapore needs for GOP's Conservatives of the 1st to Win the current "Mid-Term" Elections, in order to be able to implement its main clauses...


Indeed, a careful analysis of the landmark Singapore Agreement of June 2018, between new US President Don Trump and North Korea's Leader Kim Jong Un, clearly shows that, in Fact, the establishment of "New Relations", between US and DRPK, "for Peace and Prosperity", as well as "a Peace Regime" throughout all the "Korean peninsula", implying its "complete DeNuclearisation", in exchange of "Security Guarantees" to Northern Korea, need a Positive outcome of the 2018 Mid-Term Election for Trump's conservatives of the Republican Party (GOP).


This was made Obvious, among others, also by an interesting White House's Press Briefing, with new State Secretary Mike Pompeo, during which, a Journalist asked whether a Treaty will have to be adopted by the US, in order give those "Guarantees" to North Korea. This was the Only Question to which Pompeo did Not Reply yet, but skiped without any known explanation...


Simply because the formal Adoption of such a Treaty would necessitate, in practice, a Legal Procedure inside US Congress and Senate, whose Members face, on November 2018, an important "Mid-Term" Election :


=> I.e., GOP's Conservatives would Need to gain a Stronger Majority inside the Senate, in order Not to depend, No more, from 1 or 2 Shaky Votes, (contrary to what is the case until now), as well as to Maintain, more or less, their Clear Majority in the US Congress.


Otherwise, Dems' ("Socialists"/Liberals of US Democratic Party) systematic Opposition, might Block (or Alter) the Text of a Draft Treaty of Guarantees, Undermining the Trump - Kim Deal.


Because, in the eventual Absence of such Guarantees, obviouly, North Korea could Not risk to procede into a Full DeNuclearisation, (particularly as long as, in Addition, Heavy Economic Sanctions still persist).


And, at the Same Time, from the Other Side, the U.S. could Not definitively Lift the Sanctions, as long as North Korea has Not been substantialy DeNuclearized.


In other words, Both must Advance, in Parallel, almost at the Same Time : Guarantees and DeNuclearisation. And this, practically, needs an Efficient Control of Both the US Congress and Senate, from new US President Don Trump, (Comp. above).


In consequence, these 2018 "Mid-Term" Elections are of a Crucial Importance for Peace, given Dems' excessive War-Mongering currently...


Among Many other relevant Facts, it's not due to pure hazard the Fact that, f.ex., former Obama's Under State Secretary for Euro-Asian affairs, Mrs Nuland, known for her Interference in Ukraine's internal affairs, who has pushed towards a Brutal Clash and Bloody Divisions on 2014, cancelling an earlier Compromise Agreement signed by all Parties,
is nowadays living in Brussels from where her Husband reportedly publishes a lot of War-Mongering pseudo-"Analysis", repeating Warnings for a supposed "3rd World War" (sic) trend Against Russia, China, etc. !...


-------------------------------------------------------


+ Moreover, an impressive Series of many Facts clearly reveal that Wars risking to Affect Global Peace are a Traditional mark of Dems, while GOP's Conservatives, on the Contrary, are usualy much more enclined to seek Peaceful Agreements, throughout almost All USA's History !
F.ex. :


--------------------------


- Wilson (Dems) brought USA in the 1st World War, despite substantial public Opposition, particularly from Conservatives. Afterwards, Veterans were Abandoned,  without Financial or Education benefits, UnEmployment soared, followed by massive Strikes and Riots. Thus, American People's Majority droped Wilson, and Voted for a Conservative, Warren Harding.


- 2nd World War involvment for USA was Franklin Roosvelt's (Dems) responsibility. Conservative Leader, and his predecessor in US Presidency, Herbert Hoover, was opposed.


-----------------------------


- "Cold" War, and Korea War, added to Maccarthyism oppressive era inside the USA, the Deadly drop of the 1st Nuclear Bomb on Hiroshima - Nagasaki Civilian People, the Beginning of the Clash against Oppenheimer, and Rosenberg couple's Arrest and Conviction to Death, (despite even Albert Einstein's opposal), were ALL due to Harry Truman (Dems).


- On the Contrary, Armistice and Peace in Korea, the End of Cold War and of Maccarhyism, (as well as an Historic Plea against the Establishment's Deep State and the "Military-Industrial Complex"), were done by President Dwight EInsenhower, a Conservative.


------------------------------


- Vietnam War massive Military Interventions and Deadly Mess/Failure, (as well as Oppression against Dissidents inside the USA), were mainly Lyndon Johnson's (Dems) responsibility.

- On the Contrary, Peace in Vietnam, and "Detente" with China and Russia, came during Richard Nixon's presidency, (a Conservative).


---------------------------------------------------------------


- The Bloody Wars in former Yugoslavia (1991-2001), at the Heart of Europe, were mainly a responsibility of Bill Clinton (Dems).


+ As was too the Ukranian Deadly Conflict (with many Civilian Victims, and a persisting Mess), added to a Clash against Russia, during Barack Hussein Obama's era (Dems), which included also the Bloody Syrian Conflict, and ISIS' murderous Islamist Terrorism, (etc).


++ In Addition, North Korea's Nuclear Arms' program apparently started to become potentialy Dangerous around 2013-2017, i.e. practically during Obama II, (Dems).


------------------------------------


 - On the Contrary, Not Any War Risking to Affect Global Peace has ever Started, anywhere in the Planet, during New US President Don Trump's mandate, (Conservative).


On the Conrary, he has strived to cultivate Friendly Relations on Political Issues with Chinese and Russian Presidents, (the latter currently Hampered by an obvious Hysteria of Dems), and succeeded to mark an UnPrecedented Historic Advance even with North Korea.


However, its Outcome, now depends, practically, on the 2018 Mid-Term Elections, not just for Korea, (See above), but also on Syria and Ukraine, and other "Hot" Issues...

Former "Green-Red" German government's Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer's job at the controversial Turkish pipeline "Nabucco" was denounced as "not proper", "very bad", and "incompatible with Democracy", by the new President of EU Parliament's EuroLeft Group, German Lothar Bisky, replying to an "EuroFora" question.

For once, criticism of Joschka Fischer's doings with Turkey affecting Europe, didn't come only from the Center-Right of the political spectrum, but even from his Left side : The experienced Bisky, who has been chairing all over 1993-2009 the PDS - Die Linke party :  

- "Former Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer got involved in dealings with oil-gaz business in a foreign country, Turkey, and its controversial Nabucco pipeline. This raises questions about Democracy, also because of the well known problems of Human Rights violations in that country. Do you thing that this might be abused in order to cover up and close EU's eyes on Human Rights violations ?", "EuroFora" asked Bisky.

- "Nabucco pipeline is (only) at the planning stage". And "there are some difficulties",  he observed from the start. But "'I don't want to get into the details of Nabucco pipeline, because I don't think that there is any point for it at the moment".
 
At any case,  "we  (EU Parliament's EuroLeft Group) strongly believe that Politicians should not get involved in the Energy Business, and all these commercial transactions", President Bisky declared on the Joschka Fiischer's affair.

- "We feel that it's something that shouldn't be done. It's not proper !"           

- "We don't think that it's compatible with Democracy either, and it gets politics into a very Bad track", Bisky went on to denounce.
                                                                                                                                                                        
- "EuroLeft  and "Die Linke" always spoke against that, saying that politicians should not get directly into the arms of private enterprises"

- "It is pretty bad if a former Minister takes a job f.ex. in a major Energy producer. So, it's an issue if a Minister who may have seen excellent opportunities, subsequently gets personally grasp of them, in very serious parts of the economy, once he has given up his (Government) job."

- "It doesn't really make politics in general look any better'", Bisky concluded.

Earlier, this week in Strasbourg, other Journalists had also raised critical questions on former Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer's involvement in the conroversial Turkish Nabucco pipeline to the President of his own EuroParty : Kohn-Bendit of the "Greens", who, contrary to Bisky, tried to find excuses for Fischer, while criticizing his long-time partner, Schroeder for having done a similar move :

- "Shroeder was chancellor", and he "negociated" with "Russians", who gave him a job only "3 Months" after he resigned from the Government. While "Joschka Fischer", on the contrary, got a job with the controversial Turkish Nabucco pipeline only "4 Years after" he left the Government. "He didn't negociate Nabucco", so I have "no objection", Kohn Bendit claimed.

But, many Facts indicate the contrary :

Joschka Fischer was Foreign Minister in Germany from 1999 up to 2005 : I.e. from the year that EU took the controversial decision to give Turkey a "Candidate" status, until he year it started controversial "accession negotiations, (later declared "open-ended" after Sarkozy-Merkel's arrival from 2005-2007).

During that period was prepared the controversial so-called "Annan" Plan (in fact, drafted by others and attributed afterwards to the former UN SG) on Cyprus, which failed after a Popular Referendum said "No" on 2004 with a large Majoriy of 3/4 : 75%. Mainly because it was criticized for making too much concessions to the Turkish side :  Particularly by restricting Greek Cypriot Refugees' Human Right to return to their ancestral Land and/or get restitution of their Familiy Homes and private properties, usurpated by Ankara's Army since the 1974 militay invasion and continuing occupation of the northern part of Cyprus. And by weakening the Central Government, leaving to 2 "constituent States" so much powers and separate interests that more conflicts appeared inevitable, provoking the danger of a break-down in the foreseable future, with more crisis, troubles, perhaps bloodshed, etc., instead of creating an harmoniously integrated, really one federal State.

The controversial Plan was finalized on March-April 2004 at Burgenstock (Switzerland), curiously in the presence of an Envoy by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany, then governed by Joschka Fischer, but in the absence of a French and not even an European Union's Envoy, contrary to what was usually practiced on similar occasions in Switzerland (fex. in 1997 at Montreux, in 2000 at Geneva, etc).

Turkey notoriously exploited the failure of the "Annan" Plan in order to convince the EU to decide to start accession Negotiations on December 2004. This provoked an unprecedented series of Institutional Crisis inside the EU, shortly afterwards, when French and Dutch People rejected, 2 popular EuroReferenda by a majority "'No" vote to the EU Constitutional Treaty on 2005, aggraveted in 2004 a Majority Abstention to EU Elections, etc., followed by the recent Irish "No", etc.

"Nabucco" Gas pipeline was notoriously planned since ..2002. It follows an even earlier idea, for an Oil pipeline Baku-Ceyhun, which started to be prepared on 1999-2001 and was meanwhile recently completed.  

So, facts indicate that what is now at stake is based on decisions made during Joschka Fischer's term as former Foreign Minister, closely interested in Turkey's controversial EU-bid.

To the point that he now practically ...switched jobs with a poliician from Turkey, (the State which pays today openly Joschka Fischer), Mr. Ozdemir, who came earlier in Germany, got fast the nationality, and became EiuroMP in a few years, continuing now as head of the "Greens" in Germany, i.e. in Joschka's former job !...

Such astonishing facts risk, unfotunately, to give to German politician Lothar Bisky's criticism of  representative Democracy a topical meaning :

 - "We (EuroLeft Group) think that what is really at stake is Democracy. It's not only about Gas Pipelines or Energy sources", President Lothar Bisky went on to add in his reply to "EuroFora"'s question on Joscka Fischer's personal interests in the controversial Turkish "Nabuco" pipeline.

Such facts, "make People get more distance from Politics. ...People had had enough, and they are fed up !".

- "That's why we (EuroParliament's "EuroLeft" Group) want to strengthen Direct Democracy in Europe. Citizens should be involved in the (EU) Decision-making. In the end of the day, it's not going to help anyone if Politicians are always taking decisions, without involving Citizens. We want to give a voice to the People of Europe. They've got to have their say in the decisions that are taken. That's one of our absolutely fixed and steadfast views. We want more Direct Democracy in Europe. That's how it can become more effective and stronger", he concluded.
