США, Россия > Внешэкономсвязи, политика Статья Патрика "Пэта" Джозефа Бьюкенена (Joseph Patrick "Pat" Buchanan), работавшего в администрациях президентов Никсона, Джеральда Форда и Рейгана была опубликована на сайте Town Hall. Как отмечает Бьюкенен, даже если Запад попытается сделать из России "страну-изгоя", ее геополитическое и военное значение не позволит долго сохранять эту политику, как сейчас это происходит с КНДР. Три года спустя, после того как Советские войска были введены в Венгрию, в 1959 году президент Эйзенхауэр пригласил Хрущева в США: встреча в Кэмп-Дэвиде стала первым шагом на пути к "разрядке". По словам политолога, аналогичные шаги предпринимали как демократы, такие как Кеннеди или Линдон-Джонсон, так и республиканцы, Никсон, Рейган – все они тем самым отвечали политическим реалиям. "Мы могли не любить СССР. Но мы не могли его игнорировать", — заключает Бьюкенен. Бьюкенен напоминает недавние слова Генри Киссинджера: "Демонизация Путина – это не политика.

US TV channel PBS hits UK screens | Television & radio. As home to arguably the most respected public service broadcaster in the world, Britain is perhaps not the most obvious territory for Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), America's smaller, less internationally celebrated BBC equivalent, to launch its first channel outside the US. But on Tuesday the not-for-profit organisation will begin broadcasting in the UK, with a schedule that focuses on science, history and current affairs as PBS showcases its impressive roster of factual and news programming. The broadcaster sees itself as "another intelligent viewing option" rather than a direct competitor for the BBC, said Richard Kingsbury, general manager of PBS UK. But he does see the channel as likely to attract similar viewers. "[Our viewers] will probably already watch terrestrial factual programming on the BBC and Channel 4," he said. But Kingsbury is upbeat. Highlights from PBS's first week include the the award-winning Nova science series, which will air every weeknight.

RL33105. State Department international convention guests all support Obama. CHARLOTTE - The State Department sponsored a group of international youth leaders to visit both national conventions this year. Every single one of them interviewed by The Cable prefers President Barack Obama over GOP candidate Mitt Romney. U.S. embassies around the world selected youth leaders for an all-expense paid trip to Florida and Charlotte to see the American political process up close. Many of the youth leaders had obvious predispositions towards the Democratic party, while others said they were convinced to be in favor of the Democrats after seeing both conventions and hearing from both teams. Alex Buliga is a member of the political executive board of the youth organization of Moldova's Democratic Party. He told The Cable that the Moldovan Democratic Party is similar to the American Democratic Party in many ways. The U.S. "We saw how many lies the Republicans tell.
