UK: Everyone Now Drowning in Enoch’s Rivers of Blood

UK122245

The Prophet Enoch is a well-known figure in the Old Testament. Consequently his name has been popular as a personal name at certain periods, with parents of Jewish and Christian backgrounds naming their sons after him. The name never used to have any significance, except in reference to the biblical figure, other family members or some…

Britain’s “Gears” are Stuck

BOR

Great Britain, a country that has, undoubtedly, mistreated inhabitants of its former colonies in the East, is in the midst of an “old age crisis”, indicative of an imminent collapse of its empire. Nowadays, nothing is going right for the UK, the country has lost not only its influential status abroad but also its guiding principles at home that govern the way the populace lives. Yet another sign of its troubles is a recent…

Trade and Small Print Kills People, as the UK is About to Find Out

EUR64543

When the COVID-19 era is finally over, a lot of the infrastructure it has made obsolete will have to rebuilt, with very little money. As ever, we will be treated to dreams rather than substance. We will be told to forget about the small print and concentrate on the big picture, i.e. the ones the politicians want us to hear. We have been here before…

One of the Real but ‘Polemic’ Ways How to Defeat the COVID-19

MA

COVID-19 is not just a disease; it is also a state of mind, a psychosis, a fear. It is an event that, all over the world, unleashed irrational behavior by the governments, individuals, and media. It triggered speculations, bizarre analyses, and selective ‘cut-and-paste science.’ Result: while there are, undeniably, few optimistic success stories…

Nord Stream 2: Is European Self-Interest Finally Surpassing US Influence

NS253523

The United States has always regarded itself as the “exceptional “nation. That view may in many circumstances be relatively benign. It becomes less so when it is used as a justification for treating other countries as being less significant in the overall order of things. It is even less justifiable when that exceptionalism…

Who is Britain’s Main Enemy Today?

2411

The current political elite of Britain, being in a deep existential crisis, as many media outlets are already writing about, was looking forward to the long-awaited publication of the Russian Report, the release of which was delayed by Boris Johnson for 10 months. And finally, the intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament published…

China – Great Britain: the End of the “Golden Era”?

BO533242

The title of this article, to a certain extent answering its own question, reflects the author’s understanding of the current state of Sino-British relations which have been the focus of increased press coverage in both countries since the beginning of this year. In particular, the Chinese newspaper Global Times recently posed a similar (admittedly milder) version of this…

US Ambassadors as Lead Performers at a Political Circus

USW45422

As numerous media publications can attest, US ambassadors continue to keep everyone’s attention riveted, eliciting what is by no means the most favorable reactions from the audience. Previously, Polish media outlets had already publicized fairly harsh criticism leveled at Georgette Mosbacher, the US Ambassador to Warsaw, who uses Poland as a club with which she threatens…

UK’s Stunning Hypocrisy over Hong Kong

UKC734232

Further evidence the UK hides behind “human rights” rather than stands for them was demonstrated when London laced sanctions on Hong Kong after the passing of a security law aimed at combating overt foreign interference in special administrative region of China. British state media in an article titled, “UK suspends extradition treaty with Hong Kong,” would…

For Arms Sales, the UK Whitewashes Saudia in Yemen

MIB53423

The UK government’s recent decision to whitewash Saudi Arabia’s alleged war crimes in Yemen once again illustrates the absurdity of the claim that democracy and human rights are inseparable. While this claim may have some relevance in the domestic political arenas, it seems to have little to no connection with the dark realities of the international system…

UK in the Midst of a Full-Blown Existential Crisis

BJ56562

Based on news reports and political commentary in the UK, at present, the country is experiencing a full-blown crisis, and it remains unclear how it plans to resolve it. The outcome of negotiations on the future EU-UK relationship after Britain exited the European Union is uncertain. It is possible that a deal will not be reached or, on the contrary, UK’s “wise…

UKARM834234

On July 2, Al Jazeera reported that the Saudi-led coalition began a new major military operation in Yemen against Ansar Allah (i.e. “Supporters of God”, also known as the Houthis, “an Islamic political and armed” opposition movement). Air raids were reportedly conducted against “the capital, Sanaa, as well as Marib, al-Jouf, al-Bayda, Hajjah and Saada provinces”. According to the Houthi-run Al Masirah…
