In Syria the Entire Nation Mobilized, and Won

SY1Yes, there is rubble, in fact total destruction, in some of the neighborhoods of Homs, Aleppo, in the outskirts of Damascus, and elsewhere. Yes, there are terrorists and ‘foreign forces’ in Idlib and in several smaller pockets in some parts of the country. Yes, hundreds of…

Palangkaraya – Dreaming about the ‘Soviet’ Ca...

Palangkaraya nowBelieve it or not, but decades ago, Indonesia was a socialist country, the cradle of the ‘Non-Aligned Movement’, with the progressive and fiery President Soekarno leading the nation. The Communist Party of Indonesia (PKI) was then the third largest Communist Party in the world, after those…

Western Public “Does Not Know”, or “Does Not ...

VNC564222We are living in an age when Western propaganda has become truly intense, even surreal. It always has been, of course, but now those who are producing it, have lost all their respect for the public. It is almost as if the propagandists were laughing amongst themselves…

Korea – Unification, but Does Not have to be ...

SKTLLIt is strange that when you come from the south, near to the DMZ (De-militarized zone, which divides Korea into two parts), you will see many flags and sentimental ‘peace’ slogans, but nothing that would represent the points of view of the North Korean people. All the flags are…

Filming in the Most Depressing City on Earth ...

INSL534545222

It stinks, it is the most polluted city on earth, but that is not the most terrible thing about it. You can drive for ten or even twenty kilometers through it, and see only ugliness, fences and broken pavements. But there are many miserable cities on this planet, and I have worked in almost all of them, in 160 countries. So why is ‘Jakarta killing me’, why am I overwhelmed…

Saudi Arabia Has to Be Stopped And This Time ...

NEO JOURNAL COLLAGEIt appears that the KSA has crossed all lines of decency, if there were ever any. It crossed them not because it has been brutally killing tens of thousands of innocent people in Yemen, not even because it keeps sponsoring terrorists in Syria, (and in fact all over the world), often…

Magic Imperialism and the Great American Wall

GAW7456422You all know how the saying goes: “Poor Mexico – too far from God, too close to the United States”. This proud, beautiful and deep part of the world has been plundered, ravished and humiliated for many centuries, first by the Europeans (both the Spaniards and French), then by…

Laos – China is Building, West is Destroying ...

CHLAOIt is one of those complex stories that are so difficult to tell, and yet they should, they have to be shared. Imagine the splendid Mekong River, as it flows not far from an ancient capital of Laos, Luang Prabang. The river is powerful, with muddy banks, surrounded by lush mountains…

West is Losing and so It’s Bashing Chin...

CHIEC774342The insanity and vileness of Western anti-Chinese propaganda used to make some of my Chinese friends cry late at night. But things are changing. The lunacy of what is said and written about China (and Russia, of course), in the US and Europe, is now clearly reflecting frustration…

What Killed Thousands of Indonesians – The Qu...

5a4a87ce0e0023be125de1fe1583d193As I was reading, on board an Air Canada flight from Mexico City to Vancouver, The Globe and Mail coverage of the horrors that have been unraveling for several days on the island of Sulawesi, I felt two powerful and contradictory emotions: I wanted to be there, immediately…

Even In “Revolutionary Countries”, Mass Media...

NEO JOURNAL COLLAGEHow could a country win her fight against Western imperialism, how could it become truly independent, if its people are fully conditioned, through the mass media and education, by the North American and European doctrines and world view? Wherever I work and struggle in…

Singapore is Frightened, but it Defends its O...

SIN1Imagine a country with 5.6 million inhabitants (of which around 4 million are citizens), surrounded by a collapsing giant – Indonesia – in the south and south-west, by the historically hostile Malaysia in the north, and that proverbial deep blue sea (Strait of Malacca, full of nasty pirates) over the horizon…
