Algeria is experiencing political unrest after its ailing leader decided to run for his fifth term next month. The North African state has been rocked by its largest protests since the 2011 “Arab Spring” after President Bouteflika – who’s thought by many to be physically, and possibly even mentally, incapacitated […]
Many of the techniques that help manipulate public perception, create fake news and make false leads for the subsequent prosecution of an innocent party are based on artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. While the Silicon giants in America have more or less established a monopoly in social and political engineering through […]
It can therefore be said that a struggle for influence is taking place in Bulgaria nowadays. The EU could leverage its economic and institutional weight in the country to promote TurkStream’s extension to “mainland Europe” from Turkey while the US could lean on its military influence through NATO and the national authorities under its sway to try to stop this from happening.
The Algerian government has offered a compromise: Bouteflika runs for the presidency now for the last time as a symbol of stability with his cadence limited for one year only. Later another elections are held without pressure from barricades and Molotov’s. Though it seems that the funds have already been disbursed between the captains of the future uprising, so the show must go on.
Part of the genius behind the “Fortress America” concept is that it gives the US the ultimate geostrategic redoubt upon which to rely in the event that its divide-and-rule machinations in the Eastern Hemisphere blow back against it and eventually result in diminishing the Pentagon’s presence in the other half of the world.
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. News about this initiative generated a flurry of responses across social media, ranging from those on the pro-Israeli side of the spectrum lauding it while those who align with […]
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.
