WNT34111

Apparently, the international Olympic movement is nearing its most serious trials since its reincarnation in the late 19th century, from 393 AD, when this religious-pagan act was prohibited by the Roman Christian emperor Theodosius 1 (“the Great”).

5G

The so-called ‘Cold War 2.0’ brewing between the US and China/Russia bears little resemblance to the post Second World War scenario.

YILA52411

Whereas the recently held QUAD summit and the following foreign visits of the US Defense and State secretaries to Asia & the Pacific have clearly set in motion the Biden administration’s “China Strategy”, the probable coming together of the anti-China forces has already led China to consolidate its own position by seeking to deepen its ties with Russia in a way that can challenge…
