The WWF case suggests a direct connection between the mission of a charitable organisation and its captivation by a dangerous militancy. It has become a sponsor, and concealer, of vigilante action, obviously unabashed in cracking a few skulls in the name of shielding protected species. Along came the networks of informants, surveillance and exploiting local issues.
In a report dated 1 March 2019, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons attests to the fact that were never any prohibited chemical substances in Douma (Syria) during the attack of 7 April 2018. The reprisal tripartite bombing (United States, France, United Kingdom) was therefore unjustified. This scandal is exactly identical to the story of the bogus Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.
Sudan just imposed a year-long state of emergency in response to deadly rioting. The country has been afflicted with unrest for the past couple of months since late last year after an increase in fuel and bread prices provoked the growing anti-government movement to take to the streets and demand […]
The UK just voted to ban Hezbollah’s political wing after the British Home Secretary announced his country’s intent to do so.

Apart from the intra-“Ummah” soft power rivalry between Turkey and Saudi Arabia, as well as Ankara’s traditional sensitivity to Turkish-related affairs anywhere in Eurasia, there are also domestic reasons why Turkey’s Foreign Minister brought up his country’s stance towards Xinjiang again.
The case of removing the inhabitants of the Chagos Archipelago is a particularly ugly one, deeply mired in political considerations and diplomatic intrigue. The islands, located some 1,800 kilometres from Mauritius, became part of an arrangement between Britain and the United States, the latter particularly keen to acquire a military base in the area.
European citizens who were encouraged to join the armed struggle in Syria alongside the pro-Western mercenaries can not be pursued for collaboration with the enemy as long as they can claim the support of NATO and its member-states. The European states can not bring them to trial without examining the prime responsibility of their own leaders for the war against Syria.
The Australian dissident figure of the publishing world has been granted a passport by the Australian authorities. This was something, if only to suggest that those in Canberra, previously keen to see Assange given the roughing over, had warmed somewhat. The Australian government does have a role to play in the resolution of the Julian Assange case.
Facebook imposed double standards to censor popular Russia-connected pages. The US-based social media platform removed several pages managed by Maffick Media, a company partly owned by RT-subsidiary Ruptly, on the alleged basis that they were misleading their audience about their connections to Russia. The company’s CEO Anissa Naouai suggested that […]
Provoking conflicts in the Orthodox world has become a new area of US intervention in the internal affairs of other states, and the geographical spread of their activities is expanding rapidly. Besides Ukraine itself, the Ukrainian schism will directly affect Russia, Turkey, and Greece. Attempts to fuel dissension are currently being observed in the Balkans.
Trump wants the US’ NATO partners to repatriate their citizens captured during anti-terrorist operations in the areas of Syria under its proxies’ control, whether to put them on trial in their homelands or reintegrate them into society depending upon their sovereign choice. This demand has been met with strong opposition […]
Jussie Smollett might have staged his own hate crime after he was charged with one count of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report. The famous homosexual African-American actor claimed to be the victim of a grisly hate crime last month when he alleged that two MAGA-hat-wearing men assaulted […]
