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…

India’s 2019 Legislative Season

1112

India’s 2019 legislative season is nearly finished. And it has been fruitful on account of lawmakers’ fairly controversial activities. In fact, it is not the entire year but the second half we are referring to here. Various political forces within India itself and in other countries have described the resulting legislature in polar opposite ways…

The US Media Wakes Up — Too Late

TRM645622

Now that the impeachment trial of Donald Trump scheduled for early next year is expected to result in acquittal, the most ‘progressive’ media (MSNBC) fears that the man who thrusts his chin out like Mussolini could not only be re-elected, but may be anticipating an illegal third term. Trump has often warned that his base could resort to arms…

Washington’s Refined Art of Torturing China May Ignite a War

DRI45633

When visiting China, when working there regularly, things all of a sudden appear to be extremely familiar. I feel here like I did in Russia, during the end of the reign of Boris Yeltsin. Many people then, used to welcome everything European and North American with open arms. All that the Soviet Communists used to say was suddenly considered…

The Geo-Politics around “Unrest” in Iran

688b45c8

Western officials and political pundits as well as their allies in the Middle East, particularly Saudi Arabia and Israel, have never hesitated to express their desire to see the Iranian regime falling on its feet and giving way to a pro-West ‘democracy’ to emerge, one that would provide the linchpin for Saudi hegemony in the region…

America’s Pyramid of Lies

M5841f33

American foreign policy, not just toward Russia and China, but the world in general isn’t built on political theory or national interest. There is no manifest destiny or more than lip service for spreading democracy leading the dialog. Whatever artifice may have served for so many years, blinding all but the few, Ezra Pound, Martin Luther King, so very few, Ezra Pound, Martin Luther King, so very few…
