by by Nat South for The Saker Blog (Part 1) I’d like to tackle the subject of Arctic icebreakers, by firstly looking at the Bloomberg article, “Putin’s Arctic Plans Are a Climate Change Bet” as a starting point to this analysis.

What I like to listen to when I miss my beloved Argentina

I have a confession to make: I have not been in Argentina since 1986! And yet, I miss this wonderful country and its wonderful people.  Yes, I realize that the Argentina I once knew does not exist anymore.  I will especially miss my beloved old commuter trains with leather seats and the old and wonderful, if rather crazy, “collectivos” (buses).  So I listen to a lot of Argentinian music.  A
