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


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?


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”


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


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


Apparently, the ultra-Republican and pro-Trump, Qanon and Proud Boys (two highly excited pro-American and anti-system groupsDahJTkfw 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…

It’s been One Hell of a Year in the US and its “Not Over with Yet!”


What is really going on in the US? Lots of people are having a difficult time, and see more of the same, if not worse, for the future. Most Americans are just thinking about one more stimulus check, just before Christmas, with so many unemployed, locked down with COVID restrictions, etc. And they should not get their hopes…

Nagorno-Karabakh: Armenian Defeat Trades One War 4-Another


The outcome of the Karabakh war is turning me into more of a cynic. I keep hoping it’s just a phase. However, based on the reality on the ground, not only in Azerbaijan and Armenia but the region as a whole, many questions are coming to mind. Now is the time to reflect on what comes next, and how the political balance has been recalibrated…

Jordan: “Fake Stability” Prelude to “Misery and Mayhem”


Jordan is one of those countries you seldom hear about, however, it is located in a tough neighbourhood. When you think of the “Middle East”, a familiar set of images in a listener’s head, and most of those are not good: violence, conflict, general poverty alongside significant oil wealth, arms, terrorism, and corruption – an unstable mess where the next “load…

Nagorno-Karabakh: Erdogan Trying to Save Himself at the Expense of Others?


It is still difficult to find out what is actually going on in the NK conflict zone. News outlets are highly selective in their reporting, which is based more often than not on carefully controlled information drips from Azerbaijan and Armenia. The reports being shared back and forth on various sites are little more than versions of whose ox…

French Initiative in Lebanon: But Who Wants it to Work?


The French like to make demands. They are now making the formation of a new government in Lebanon a requirement for the promise of financial assistance, in what has become known as “the French Initiative.” As the expression goes, the “road to hell is paved with good intentions.” In this case, not even good intentions are proving to be enough, due…

Shifting “Molecules” of Nord Stream 2 & “Why Now?”


The US is heating up so many irons in so many different fires: new sanctions on Iran, (old one reintroducedDahJTkfw new allegations and arm twisting with China over COVID 19 and Chinese tech companies, and now threats of sanctions against German companies which work together with the Russians in the Nord Stream 2 underwater gas pipeline project. Despite…

Why Nagorno-Karabakh and Why Now?


Several months ago, I wrote that things had been tense on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone since the collapse of the USSR, but only now are we hearing of a resumption of active hostilities, the deployment of heavy weaponry and heated engagements. Observers on the ground have no doubt that the heaviest fighting in years is going on, and this is only…
