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 […]

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 […]
