A Dangerous America for a Dangerous Time

PB34211

The world largely stopped trusting America under Trump, with some exceptions, certainly Israel and Saudi Arabia. Even with Trump gone, the fear of Trump returning is pushing nations like Iran into a negotiating stance on the JCPOA nuclear deal that is looking increasingly hopeless. Europe is certainly terrified of the possible return of Trump…

Our Children are Crying

CHLD34111

What President Kennedy said over half a century ago, is more valid today than ever. This world needs a generation that can lead us out of the mess of dystopian values that was created predominantly by a western civilization of greed. The COVID crisis, man-made, served the destruction of the world economy, as well as the ensuing World Economic Forum (WEF) designed “Great Reset”…

Western Attempts to Smear China Over its Uighur Population Will Fail

UIG23411

For some time now certain western countries, with the United States and United Kingdom especially prominent have been waging a propaganda war against China. The focus of this attention has been the alleged mistreatment of the Uighur population in China’s western region. Protestations by the Chinese government as well as invitations…

The War for Kimchi, Episode X+1.

KMC

While periodically noting the pearls of South Korean nationalism, the author cannot help but bring up the analogy of the Russian-Ukrainian borscht dispute over Korean kimchi cabbage, which Seoul actively promotes as a national treasure and symbol.  The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), a United Nations body, officially recognized an industry standard for kimchi…

US Loses Yet Another War

USOV342111

The United States has not won a single war since the defeat of Japan (which, incidentally, was defeated with the active support of Russia). Moreover, the US was beaten by Third World armies in Korea and Vietnam, and in the 21st century, when it invaded Afghanistan, almost 20 years later it was also defeated by lightly armed Taliban units. Armed invasion of Iraq resulted in yet another defeat…

Sputnik V Finds Approval in the Middle East

SPTN

The cabinet of Qatar tightened measures to stem the spread of the novel Coronavirus at the beginning of February due to the rise in COVID-19 cases. Further restrictions have been imposed on various institutions and their operations, and the number of individuals allowed to attend large gatherings and entertainment events. Similar steps have…

“Do Women Talk Too Much?” or a Scandal at the Japanese Olympic Committee

TOK3211

A recent comment made by head of Tokyo Olympics organizing committee Yoshiro Mori sparked a political uproar, seemingly disproportionate in scale, which was eventually followed by his punishment that did not fit the crime. It is worth highlighting that once the chief was forced to resign on February 12, the scandal…

ROK Authorities Try to Bring Park Sang-hak and his Associates into Line, but the US Gets in the Way

LEAF23131

Remember how the actions of anti-Pyongyang NGOs provoked the aggravation of the summer of 2020, when North Korea finally got fed up with the “fighters for a free North Korea,” led by the odious defector Park Sang-hak, launching balloons with leaflets and other propaganda across the border in…

Who Can Fill the Power Gap US Abuses Have Created?

JUS34211

Relationships between states differ over time, depending on a wide variety of factors. Poland was warmly welcomed into the EU when it got rid of Communism, but its veer towards an unpleasant form of nationalism now makes it a less than desirable partner. Tens of thousands of Portuguese died to kick the French out of their country, and now French citizens have an automatic right…

China Ousts the BBC Based on UK’s Own Media Standards

BBC

In a move that was entirely predictable after the UK’s Office of Communications (Ofcom) banned China’s CGTN from operating in the UK, China has reciprocated by banning BBC World News from broadcasting in China. The BBC in its own article titled, “China bans BBC World News from broadcasting,” would claim: China has banned BBC World…

Sputnik V Diplomacy: A Race Won As Humanity Continues Losing

SPTN412

Holy cow! The American expression most often reserved for stunning revelations suits a recent New York Times shocking headline. Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine may be worth a try, no less. When I read the headline, I dropped my morning cappuccino. That’s right, the bible of Putin and Russia haters has written a Psalm about Russia…

How the US Sanctions Regime is Plundering Syria

SYR

While the US military presence in northeastern Syria is purportedly aimed at preventing the re-emergence of ISIS, there is little denying that the US presence and the overall policy regime it is following in Syria is actively contributing to down grading the country’s military and political gains in the ten long years of a multi-front war. On the one hand…
