What’s at stake in the US election?

The outcome of the 2016 presidential election will show that the American political system – as we have known it – will apparently cease to exist.  Trump is nothing like those Republican pawns who, along with the puppets of the Democratic party, have spent the last 40 years erecting the facade of American democracy.  It […]

Obama’s Syria Gambit: Insanity, or Doubling-Down?

I am often able to “diagnose” insanity by applying the simple adage: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” In Syria, in spite of a continuous series of defeats in spreading the “American way of life” (another way of saying global hegemony), and the associated worsening of […]

France: A la Guerre Comme a la Guerre!

A human tragedy has taken place. On November 14, terrorists killed over 100 people in Paris. More than 200 were injured. But even now the leadership of France has no courage to face the reality. President François Hollande keeps on harping on the same string expressing their readiness to fight for European values and ideals […]

Time Is Running Out For Pax Americana’s Apologists

The paradox of the current global crisis is that for the last five years, all relatively responsible and independent nations have made tremendous efforts to save the United States from the financial, economic, military, and political disaster that looms ahead. And this is all despite Washington’s equally systematic moves to destabilize the world order, rightly […]

The Price of Indifference and Self-deception

My Russian friends periodically ask me what Americans think about Russia. Recent developments have given rise to a new round of questions: Putin’s interview for CBS News’ “60 Minutes”, his UN speech, and the start of air support for the beleaguered Syrians. I can best address by referring to the remark by an American journalist […]

Putin’s Global Game Changer

Contrary to the expectations of many experts who were predicting a “second Munich” from Vladimir Putin in New York, the Russian president made no grandiose proclamations during his address to the UN General Assembly. In fact, he was outwardly far milder than one might have imagined. By comparison, Obama’s emotional speech, which was replete with […]

What will Obama and Putin talk about?

In this final week before Vladimir Putin addresses the UN General Assembly, there has been a flurry of contact between Washington and Moscow. And by that I don’t just mean the Sept. 18 telephone call between the defense ministers of Russia and the US. Russia’s beefed up military presence in Syria has clearly sparked a […]

Obama Sacrifices Integrity over Ukraine

A lack of integrity can be seen in Obama’s recent comments about Ukraine’s territorial integrity. On June 7, President Obama told the G7 gathering in Schloss Elmau Krün, Germany that the world must “stay focused on the importance of upholding the principles of territorial integrity” regarding Ukraine. Like Obama, most casual Western observers seem to […]

Is Washington able to buy off Frau Merkel?

Last Monday Germany announced it would not send arms to Kiev. Angela Merkel stated quite clearly that she was not going to supply weapons to the government there and that the conflict in Ukraine should be resolved solely through diplomatic means. This was an unexpected statement, given the Frau’s reputation as someone who is hardly […]

Another MH17 Cover-Up: Hiding a Key Autopsy

Decisive evidence as to how the July 17th shooting-down of the MH17 Malaysian airliner occurred is being hidden by the four-nation team that’s doing the official ‘investigation’ into the plane-downing incident. This decisive evidence is the coroner’s report on the corpse of the airliner’s pilot. If the pilot was killed by bullets, then the standard […]

Lame-duck Obama’s brave new world

Fresh out of his latest Congressional election shellacking delivered by the minority who bothered to vote in the United States, the formerly most powerful leader in the world, US President Barack Obama, will star in a thriller this weekend, appearing in the same room with China’s Xi Jinping, Japan’s Shinzo Abe and – fasten your […]
