Iran’s Hero has Fallen, and Now the World is an Even More Dangerous Place

SU

They say he came from a humble background, and worked himself up the ranks, becoming, as many believe, the second most powerful man in Iran. They say he had the chance to become the next Supreme Leader of the country. Whenever I visit Iran, I am told how much he is loved by his people. He became the symbol of resistance against…

What are Washington’s New Goals in Central Asia?

AFG34232

The  ongoing catastrophy that would typically be referred to as the US “military presence” in Afghanistan has lasted for almost two decades, yet Washington has so far failed to demonstrate to the rest of the world its “humanitarian intentions” in this country. At the same time, we’ve seen no shortage of bold statements made by US officials on all levels that are…

Has Trump set a Precedent for Killing US Personnel?

TMP345222

The Soleimani funeral is going on as I type. I was lined up for some of the Iranian domestic coverage, but the funeral started earlier than planned which bumped me to tomorrow’s coverage. I had been reviewing the updated coverage, waiting for some of the smoke to clear. Gordon Duff covered for Veterans Today on the early morning coverage…

Oh No, Not Poland Versus Putin Again!

PN64634

Why is it that every truth voiced by Russian President Vladimir Putin has to be labeled a lie? The recent rumpus over Mr. Putin’s recent comments about Poland’s role in World War II is a perfect example of history modification. What should be facts easy for anyone to discern, have now been transformed into an alternative history that defies truth and logic…

America’s Decline Around the World, Is it for the Best?

UST4636

Under President Trump, the US has faced one disaster after another, Europe, NATO, North Korea, and of course, the Middle East. Let us catalog a few: Pakistan: Under Imran Khan, that nation has moved toward Russia, with huge investment programs already in place and military aid not far behind. India: That nation…

Yemen’s Exiles… Millions Live in Limbo Unable to Return Home

YEM746342

Earlier this month, Human Rights Watch called on the United States government to extend and redesignate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Yemen, which expires on March 3, 2020, so that those Yemenis who found themselves stranded in the US when the war broke out in late March 2015 would not…

Dumping Radioactive Water into the Pacific Ocean — a Hypothetical Scenario for Tokyo?

FUK543221

It was not so long ago that we wrote about how radiophobia is being stoked up as part of the trade war between Japan and South Korea. Having brought this topic to the public’s attention, I would like to go into more detail and highlight people’s fears that “Japanese authorities are about to flood…

The United States of Investigations

TRM53411

Given that the second branch of the US government is the ‘legislative’ branch, it is no surprise that qualifications for joining that body give pride of place to a degree in law. And yet, it is unlikely that the framers’ — as those who wrote the Constitution are referred to — ever imagined the lengths to which representatives would go…

America, Where Great Literature Kicked the Bucket

GHOA34252

Once in a while, people ask me: “Why did you accept the US citizenship, many years ago?” “After all,” they say, “now you are one of the most vocal critics of the United States, and of the West in general.” Perhaps I never explained, or I did, some time ago, and now it is forgotten. So, let me try again, now that the world is facing destruction…

In the UK – Do Subjects Deserve their Rulers?

BS3463452

I constantly receive such letters; letters which repeat, again and again, year after year, basically the same thing: “If only we would have an opportunity to vote out our damn system!” Such letters, emails and messages keep coming to me from the United States, but also from the United Kingdom. Particularly, after certain events, like when the Western empire overthrows…

All Those Missiles Pointed at Russia: Who Are They Trying to Hit?

7642w3

As the Serbs never tire of pointing out, international diplomacy is often driven by irrational prejudice. Whenever Serbs try and create a country of their own, which includes all the predominantly Serb population areas, the rest of the world thinks this is a bad thing and does everything it can to prevent it. When asked why it is so bad…

British “Liberators” are in Fact War Criminals

BRI55322

The bloody wounds UK has inflicted around the world through its all too often vile foreign policy are still raw. This can not only be said of colonial-era foreign policy, but also of Britain’s contemporary foreign policy. British troops have remained committed to the principles of colonial occupation. It was after the turn of the millennium…
