Saudi and Western Ponzi-Scheme vs. Regional Geopolitical Realities

PIPE543521

The more you read, and read again, the same material but with the titles changed, the more disillusioned you become. It is as if the pundits just don’t get it, even to the extent of calling the South Caucasus part of Europe. In that particular case even Wikipedia is more accurate than most: Transcaucasia, also known as the South Caucasus…

Will Afghanistan Become Everybody Else’s Problem with the US and NATO Withdrawal?

TRK3411

The situation in Afghanistan is like the ending of Charlie’s Wilson war. In the endgame there is no saving face and no victory is won. In fact a great vacuum remains, despite 20 years of US and NATO partner attempts to nation-building. It is not as if they did not know how it would end, sooner or later, as with Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers…

Blatant Media and Free Speech Censorship without Shame or Remorse!

FRN341211

We do our best to try and write something of value here. So it is always distressing when we know about the motives of other journalists is confirmed – over and over again. It’s finally happened – they’ve got footage of a CNN writer in a bar admitting to writing propaganda, aka “fake news”. As if we did not already know. The difference…

Armenian Genocide Recognition, Game Changer and Threat to NATO’s Continued Existence

ERD8522

With Turkey in tatters, Joe Biden has added insult to injury with the Armenian Genocide recognition, a campaign promise he has now kept. A few weeks ago, Turkey’s currency lost 17% in one day, and COVID is at its highest peak there. It goes without saying that the Turkish leadership is facing disaster, both…

Georgia’s Political “False Flags” – Never Missing an Opportunity for Russian Bashing

GRG45211

In the wake of COVID and the current economic crisis you would think a country that has staked so much on tourism would not bite the hand that could [potentially] feed it. But conventional wisdom does not work when political parties will stoop to any level to spin the visit of a foreign journalist for political gain. This was definitely the case…

Is Softer US Policy on Russia Even Possible?

MTH452121

Presidential appointments can be revealing, not only in terms of those who are appointed but of those who are passed over, or kept in the shadows. One case in point is not breaking news, but nevertheless revealing, as is seen by the title of a recent MSM news article. Biden eyes Russia adviser criticized as soft on Kremlin, as the article puts it. It claims that President…

Biden’s Folly over Iran and Foreign Policy, “A Dr. Strangelove Threat to All!”

BDN056222

The maneouvres of the US and Iran in their efforts to come to some agreement on Iran’s Nuclear programme, peaceful or otherwise, are becoming only too predictable. Basically, both the US and Iran are no longer bound by the 2015 accord and have demanded that the other take the first step to return to full compliance, and it was the US that…

America is Not Back Yet, at Least when it Comes to Palestine!

ISR34211

Speaking about the state of Israel these days, it’s hard to argue that the persecuted have become the persecutors, and “two wrongs don’t make a right.” The flames of anti-Semitism are increasing, and this fire is fuelled by both left and right. For instance, Georgia’s Republican House of Representatives member…

Not Identifying Israel and Saudi Arabia as Allies: Stupidity or Brilliant Subterfuge?

PSK3411

The New York Post is now flexing its muscles as the newspaper of “veracity” in the wake of Biden’s son and Ukraine and the slippery energy deals. This policy has led it to try and raise other benchmarks of “trustworthiness,” such as the recent article: “Why Jen Psaki “can’t or won’t” answer whether Israel and Saudi Arabia are ‘important allies…

Conservative Americans Now Labeled “Domestic Terrorists”

MAG3411

The long-awaited transition of power finally occurred in the United States on January 20, 2021 when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn in as president and vice president. Two weeks before on January 6, a large number of Donald Trump’s supporters rallied in Washington DC to protest what they believed to be a stolen election by the Democrats. A small fraction…

Duelling Monuments Defines Political Landscapes and Slanted Histories

LEE

There are definite double standards in all aspects of life, such as the way different protests are handled. This has not only been recently demonstrated in the US, but in many different versions of history. The Suffragettes are presented by history as selfless freedom fighters who corrected an injustice by obtaining votes for women…

Trump vs. Biden: Misgovernment “Of and By” the American People

USSC3422

Apparently, the ultra-Republican and pro-Trump, Qanon and Proud Boys (two highly excited pro-American and anti-system groups) were the main instigators, however, they would have been totally unsuccessful if certain powers, did not decide to let this get out of control in order to discredit Trump and his legitimate supporters…
