How Yemen’s War Stands to Redefine the Region...

HOU342321

If ever anyone was still under the impression that North Yemen would soon surrender to Saudi Arabia’s intense military pressure, Saturday’s attack on Aramco some 200 miles east of Riyadh, the Kingdom’s capital, most definitely shattered such belief. If anything, Ansarallah, under…

Will Vladimir Putin Declare Capitalism Dead T...

Is it time for a new Declaration of Independence? If true individual choice and truth are any factor of freedom, the writing is on the wall not just in the United States, but globally. The wealth divide that has grown into an impenetrable wall between the elites and the rest of us, it’s only a symptom…

Hong Kong is Scared – of the Rioters

HK1

It was once a British police station, as well as the Victoria Prison Compound. Hong Kong inhabitants used to tremble just from hearing its name mentioned. This is where people were detained, interrogated, humiliated, tortured and disappeared. Now, after Hong Kong ‘returned to China’, it was converted into the Tai Kwun Center…

How Come Lynching hasn’t Gone Anywhere ...

47643232

It’s nearly impossible to argue these days with Die Zeit, that states that no country comes close to the US with its high percentage of the general population carrying firearms, with more people dying each year from gunshot wounds in America than in any other country of the world…

Big Data, the Nuclear War on Your Soul

PHONE533522

By the 1990’s the bridge between media, academia and spy agencies had disappeared. Publishing, lecturing, every aspect of journalism or education, eventually to include science, mathematics and engineering as well, had become “political.” Any individual who strayed became a threat. Every organization, official or ad hoc, had to…

US – China “Trade” War? No Way! Only the Defe...

2340660

It is very popular these days to talk and write about the “trade war” between the United States and China. But is there really one raging? Or is it, what we are witnessing, simply a clash of political and ideological systems: one being extremely successful and optimistic, the other…

The Whitewashing of The Nazis

KI534522

I was going to write about Iraq and the American control of that tragic nation that has been, like many others, destroyed by the American war machine, but it is difficult to find out any real facts about anything in Iraq. All the news and reports are controlled, events are unexplained, the politics unclear, the American influence hidden…

Prisoner of the Supreme Law

NRA

Every elected official in the United States of America pledges to defend the Constitution; not the King, or even the President, but the nation’s founding set of laws and amendments. On the surface, this appears to be a more democratic way of running a nation than fealty to the highest official in the land, whether hereditary king or democratically elected…

The West Oppressed the Third World for so Lon...

USHO7653432

Many have already noticed: The US really, really doesn’t feel like the world leader, or even as a ‘first world country’. Of course, I write that sarcastically, as I detest expressions like ‘first world’, and the ‘third world’. But readers know what I mean. Bridges, subways, inner cities, everything is…

On the Pivotal Question of “Who’s Creating Te...

ISIS

A stunning question just popped into my head this morning; “What is it international terrorist groups hope to gain?” Looking at the whole concept of Bush II’s “War on Terror” – I cannot help but wonder if there would be any crisis at all if my country withdrew totally from the world…

Several Reasons Why West Papua Should Get its...

WSPT

More than ten years ago, in Nadi, Fiji, during a UN conference, I was approached by the Minister of Education of Papua New Guinea (PNG). He was deeply shaken, troubled, his eyes full of tears: “Please help our children,” he kept repeating: “Indonesian army, TNI, is kidnapping…

The Not so Subtle Moral Decay of the US Milit...

CRI

At this point, there’s no hiding that a considerable number of MSM sources directly promotes the agenda of both US military contractors and the Pentagon, trying to advertise the US military as the ultimate combat force akin to those unvanquishable legions of Rome from two thousand…
