BC: The French 9/11: Reasons and Lessons

740IS

The policy of double standards and blatant hypocrisy of the European Union have led to what would have happened sooner or later – international terrorism striking back in the center of civilized world – Paris. On November 13, terrorists launched 7 separate attacks in the French capital, that claimed the lives of over 150 people. The attack in the Bataclan…

Abandoning Jakarta, Moving Capital to Borneo ...

JAK1

It is wrong, totally wrong to abandon Jakarta and try to build some Potemkin village in the middle of Borneo, an island known in Indonesia as Kalimantan. There are many reasons why, and we will be addressing at least some of them here. But before we begin, let us state the obvious: the cowardly and…

Building a Lasting Peace in Yemen by Getting ...

YEM5764563

While Yemen remains locked in a grand political dispute, its people bound by the competing ambitions of various factions and militias as they each argue power, legitimacy, and righteous politics, it is likely that peace will require more than a coming together of those warring parties … Peace as it were, will…

November 8th, 1989

BRW

Around eight o’clock on November 8th, 1989, I stepped into a taxi at the Gare de Lyon in Paris carrying the first copies of a book I had written that included a plan for the reunification of Europe. I gave the driver my address, annoyed that he had the radio on. Suddenly, I heard the newscaster saying that the Berlin Wall had fallen! Before climbing up to my fifth…

TRM34534

Our world is burning down around us, but we’re so accustomed to smoke and flames we only feel the heat warming us. Every day for a decade now I’ve researched and analyzed the media, geopolitics and public relations, and I’ve decided we cannot save Earth. For a moment there was hope. The defiant strength of Russia’s…

Why America is a Threat?

CHEK88775

The announcement in October 2019 that the United States was “keeping” Syria’s oil for itself, opened the eyes of millions of Americans blinded by 20 years of absolute censorship, total propaganda and political turmoil. What became clear is that the US government itself has no ability to trade in oil, it runs no refineries, owns no gas stations, no pipelines. The oil was going…

With not enough jobs or basic necessities to go around, governments survive by looting, and populations demand self-rule. That’s easier said than done, when governments have a monopoly on force, and violence turns those who are managing against protests. Ever since the founding of the United States of America, struggling populations around…

SCO34423534

Although the ordinary reader of the western media would scarcely be aware of it, the rest of the world is making fundamental changes to economic and political relationships. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the greater Eurasian region. This area of land encompasses four of the worlds officially acknowledged eight…

Politics and Religion

ME435343

Interactions between politics and religion began with the birth of politics. For centuries, this relationship continued to undergo metamorphoses, especially, at times, when either sphere attempted to dominate the other. From the onset, religion has always been used as a tool by politicians to hold on to power. Out of the two means used…

OPCW Faces a Credibility Crisis

OPC2245

A series WMD-related accusations leveled against Damascus was the primary driving behind Washington’s agenda in the Middle East as a whole, and Syria in particular. Instead of assisting the peace process that encompasses all the parties locked in a bitter feud in an attempt to stabilize the region, the West prefers to undermine it by throwing around allegations…

Qatar – Education as a Weapon

DOW46456

There seems to be no limit to Qataris tossing around their wealth. This tiny kingdom with 2.6 million inhabitants is full of ridiculously lavish gold-plated palaces, most of them built with terrible taste. It is overflowing with Lamborghini racing cars and Rolls Royce limousines, and now, even with ludicrously wasteful air-conditioned sidewalks (cold air blows from below, into the 35C heat…
