What is the Real Target/Objective of US Offence Policy in Europe?


The propaganda machine in the US is fueled by the ignorance of the American public, who still believe, with hand on heart, that the US government is on their side and motivated by altruism. However, the rest of the world is not so naïve, as more and more countries are waking up to the fallout of US policy. I just wonder how long the conflict in Ukraine can last…

Is the Ukrainian War on its Own People Now Over?


My former neighbour in the US wrote to me, tongue in cheek, a few days ago. “I was told the Ukrainian civil war is over and Russia won because the Azov Battalion was wiped out. There is a total media blackout in the US, and worse than that – so much disinformation before and how it will be justified in the end. I suppose that now the US has a new problem …this is China…

Poor Hunter Biden, Wrong Place, Wrong Time, Wrong Father!


What goes around comes around, which may explain the perils of Hunter, like the Perils of Pauline – as in spite of massive censorship, Hunter Biden is catching it all ways. So much so that I am beginning to “really” feel sorry for him. The laptop story, or lap dancing, or the self-portraits “high and in the nude” are just too humdrum now, not even worth remembering…

Outcomes in Ukraine and Russian Resilience Can be Served Up as the Perfect Scapegoat


There is always a conflict between high principle and pragmatism. Embracing both is probably a wise strategy. But whether you can actually have anything both ways, or whether the outcome would mean anything if you did, remains to be seen. American policymakers, during their many attempts to isolate and antagonise Russia, should…

Lend-lease: A Declaration of Proxy War on Russia for all Practical Purposes?


The American policymakers, when wanting to isolate and antagonise Russia, must have asked, “What ‘redline’ would have to be crossed for Putin to act?” In retrospect, in light of Putin’s Victory Day Speech which coincided with Russian successes in the Donbass region and the East of Ukraine as a whole, the answer is clear…

Cattle Die in Mass: But Not Mad Cow, Holy Cow!


I’ve recently come across a report stating that 3,000 cows died suddenly last weekend in SW Kansas. No one knows why. I said to myself, WTF? A quick turn of the shovel revealed that already many are questioning the conventional media and its headlines, such as Shocking Footage Shows Thousands of Dead Cattle in Kansas During a Heatwave…

Russia is Left with Few Options Other than to Defend Itself, “As Always!”


One prince rides out from the West, the other from the East, destined to do battle until Judgment Day decrees there must come a time of peace. Ancient legends have always fascinated me, and it has always seemed that this is always with us: the past, the present and the future all knotted together in a repetitive loop…

Ukrainian Refugees are Everywhere, Especially Woman and Children


The war in Ukraine has, as expected, brought yet another flow of migrants. This latest wave is being greeted with either flag-waving enthusiasm or weary resignation, but few are noticing that it adds a new dimension to the existing refugee and geopolitical situation. Most refugees come from Third World countries and live in other Third World…

How the West Turned Alt-info TV into the Georgian Conservative Movement


Yet another new political party, the Conservative Movement, has now been founded in Georgia. Usually these parties are personal vehicles for one person, and vanish when their grievances do. This one however has a more unusual provenance, which seems to causing undue concern. The Conservatives began life as an alternative…

Why Biden is Better for Russia than Trump


During the previous US Administration we heard a lot of talk about connections with Russia, and Trump supposedly doing Putin’s bidding. Trump was depicted as the most pro-Russian president in the land of the Alger Hiss spy scandal, Joe McCarthy and the Red Scare and Trygve Lie being forced out of the UN because he was allegedly filling it with Communists…

Trump and US Lawmakers Left a Time Bomb for Biden


Biden may not want to deal with Middle East issues, but they don’t just disappear. Talking about International law is one thing, following it is another. A political position should have less to do with campaign funding and a political base. That is why the political process is so far removed from realty, and lacks any semblance of the rule of law…

Biden and COP 26


It is better to produce an article on the outcome of the UN’s COP26 climate summit now, whilst it is still taking place in Glasgow, as by the time it ends on 12 November my predictions will stand in retrospect. But the first question to ask is, what is it? Why are these summits being held, other than to make world leaders feel important, and give them the opportunity to do side deals which have nothing to do…
