COID-2019: Life Imitates Art in Kentucky

USPL3422

Happenstance is too close to reality, at least based on recent news in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and elsewhere in the United States. In spite of all the precautions which may only delay the impending pandemic, few places will be safe—not even rural Kentucky. As an old school friend of mine wrote: You escaped just in time. Today, the day after you left…

Trump-Modi Bonhomie: Mostly Showmanship, Little Action!

TRMININ34234

President Donald Trump’s visit to India on February 24—the eighth of any US president—is being lauded by India’s domestic media as the greatest ever. This may be an exaggeration, but it did produce a series of arms deals and co-operation agreements in nuclear and conventional energy. What was missing however was any large or transformative agreement…

740 (1)

The Richard Lugar Lab is fast becoming a topic of household conversation in both Georgia and the Russian Federation, because increasing numbers of people care that it is not a public health facility, as claimed, but a threat to the population and humanity as we know it. The Caucasus region…

US Agency for Global Media: the Empire’s Newest Propaganda Arm

USIA534523

My first reaction to learning about the creation of a new government agency, the US Agency for Global Media, was one of complete surprise and ANGER. Does not the US government already have at its disposal enough purported media – VOA and democracy support groups, NDI, collaborating media and a wide range of…

Real Agenda of Kuala Lumpur Islamic Summit Plans Derailed by Saudi Arabia

KH5342

There is more to the divide in the Muslim world than the schism between the Sunni and Shiite sects. This was recently proven by the apparent failure of an Islamic Summit, not due to good intentions but spoilers. 2019 ended with a Kuala Lumpur Summit organised by Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. Its stated purpose…

Armenians and Armenian Genocide Useful Tools for US-Turkish Policy

ARM3533

The latest Armenian related news, in the US Senate, follows on from the House Resolution from the end of October. Such genocide recognition is a testament to the tenacity of the Armenian-American advocacy community, within the context of broader US-Turkish relations. The motivations behind the vote are open…

Does Trump’s Choice of New Ambassador to Georgia Mean Anything?

KD32524

I consider that Kelly Dengan, the pending US Ambassador appointment to Georgia covers lots of territory, as I wrote to the daughter of a journalist who is helping her mother writing an article on Georgian-Ukrainian relations and he asked for some insight—from the perspective of an outsider and English speaker…

Latest on ASF: Dead Boars Washed Up on a Danish Shore

BOA2542

It is highly doubtful that pigs can swim great distances, especially if sick with flu. Despite this, a colleague from Denmark recently wrote what would make a shocking headline, and would be a great conspiracy story on top of that. He said; “several dead boars were recently found on Danish shores – coincidence, or is somebody...

Joe Biden, Memory Lapses for Americans with Short Memories

What is difficult to understand in terms of the Democratic race for the party’s nomination is “why many Americans seem willing to vote for a likely Democratic Party nominee who stands little chance of winning against Donald Trump in 2020? I recently posed this question to some American friends and got a smattering of answers that may help…

Turkey’s Done What Was Least Expected: US Too, Armenian Genocide Resolution!

ARMET

I recently wrote to Nareg Sererian, a PhD candidate at Virginia Tech University, US, who is also an old friend whom I know very well, bringing to his attention a website report by the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs about different transcripts, “takes-on-history,” on the events of the Armenian genocide and its…

Hillary “Queen of the Warmongers” as Trump’s Greatest Asset

HIL645632

The US presidential race hits a “new low” with Cold War slurs. As Ilia Chavchavadze, a famous Georgian writer, poet, and journalist once wrote, “Judge not a man by his friends but look at his enemies, and then I can tell you who this man is!” However, in this case, that man is a woman, and one that is collecting high profile enemies…
