Trump warning: the start of World War III and ISIS

The American lust for power and neo-con agendas has been causing catastrophes in the Middle East and the Muslim world now for over four decades. What is, however, a cause for greater fear is that this is leading towards a global conflict. The world just got another warning, this time from Donald Trump the US […]

Last Stand For ISIS?

As a former soldier and war correspondent who has covered 14 conflicts, I look at all the media hoopla over tightening siege of Mosul, Iraq and shake my head. This western-organized “liberation” of Mosul is one of the bigger pieces of political-military theater that I’ve seen. Islamic State(IS), the defender of Mosul, is a paper […]

Reassessing The Reasons For The Failed Turkish Coup Attempt

It’s been a little over 3 months since some rogue members of the Turkish military failed to oust President Erdogan in their spectacular coup attempt last July, and the passage of time has allowed many analysts to more calmly assess what happened during this dramatic time and fully investigate its origins. This review aims to […]

War of the worlds: masks are ripped away in Syria

In recent weeks, the battle for Aleppo has exposed the true heart of contemporary global politics with vivid clarity.  The US Air Force’s duplicitous Sept. 17 attack on Syrian army positions near Deir ez-Zor, the hysterical outcry against Russia that erupted from the Pentagon, the US State Department’s undisguised threats against the Russian contingent in […]

Afghanistan – Fool’s War

Fifteen years ago this week, the US launched the longest war in its history: the invasion and occupation of remote Afghanistan. Neighboring Pakistan was forced to facilitate the American invasion or ‘be bombed back to the stone age.’ America was furious after the bloody 9/11 attacks. The Bush administration had been caught sleeping on guard […]

The New American Financial Model Has Failed Main Street

“History shows that the United States has benefited politically and economically from wars in Europe. The huge outflow of capital from Europe following the First and Second World Wars, transformed the U.S. into a superpower… Today, faced with economic decline, the US is trying to precipitate another European war to achieve the same objective.”… Sergey […]

Who’s Calling Whose Bluff In Syria?

The situation in Syria is dangerously veering out of control, with the US threatening strikes against the Syrian Arab Army while Russia has suggested that it would shoot down any incoming threat to its servicemen. The alternative media is ablaze with speculative talk about the onset of World War III, and a distinct feeling of […]

Russia: Limiting The Pokemon Mental Desease

An indignant indictment descended once again on the Russian Federation from that moral height of the West’s press when a locally known provocateur à la Pussy Riot eventually managed at last to do something sufficiently offensive to have him granted his greatest wish: attention. A two month penalty cements his status as atheist martyr devoured […]

NGOs And The Mechanics Of Hybrid War

Foreign-linked NGOs all across the world play an irreplaceable role in fomenting Hybrid Wars. The Law of Hybrid War states that these sorts of conflicts are manufactured identity clashes predicated on disrupting, controlling, or influencing multipolar transnational connective infrastructure projects in key transit states by means of enacting Regime Tweaking, Regime Change, or Regime Rebooting […]

The Grand Global Circus: 2016 US Presidential Elections

Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies—Groucho Marx When I was young I remember how excited many of us children would be to visit the circus when it came to town. For us the best part was the opening, the clown or the […]

Speaking of the Olympics…

Is anyone else as upset as I am that the SYRIAN swimmer, Yusra Mardini, is being recognized as a refugee, not as a Syrian national, and that, if she wins a medal, the members of the Olympic Committee have decided they will raise a special flag they made for refugees, instead of her Syrian flag?
