This outmost daring move comes at a crucial point in time, and faces us with the realization that Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump are united and have taken humanity to the crossroads of the New World Order and freedom. As I have stated often before, I thought that the world would deeply change between 2020 and 2024.
In an era where agreements have been abandoned as “bad”, to use that favourite word of US President Donald Trump, the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons continues to feature on the books of diplomacy. But age seems to be wearying it and decoding sober readings from hype-filled tat […]
The Vatican comes with its ills, contradictions and blatant hypocrisies in the field of moral theology and human existence, but on the issue of atomic and nuclear weapons, the position has been fairly consistent, if marked by gradual evolution. On February 8, 1948, Pope Pius XII held an audience with […]
The development of new dual-use intermediate-range ballistic and cruise missiles was the only reason for America’s withdrawal from a treaty that the country’s previous leaders referred to as ‘a cornerstone of global security’. Washington’s disinformation campaign continues, along with its false statements that Russia ‘violated’ the INF Treaty.
There is bound to be an initial boost in expenditure and testing on weapons that would have otherwise been banned by the INF. A mini-arms race is in the offing: to each its degree of deserving lunacy. There will also be, if the views of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg are anything to go by, an increased emphasis on improving missile defences.
The 50th anniversary of mankind’s first landing on the moon on July 20, 1969 has created an opportunity to rethink some of the fateful decisions that set western society onto a trajectory of zero-technological growth and mindless consumerism in the early 1970s. Rather than speed up the momentum of ambitious […]
Trump’s Relationship to Russia and China: A Revival of the Henry Wallace Doctrine for the Post-War World?
During the course of the G20 important agreements and alliances were reached between Russia-China and the USA which indicate that President Trump is not “just another neo-con” as some of his cynical detractors have claimed, but is actually working to re-orient the United States into a strategic alliance with the […]
If the world is to embark upon great infrastructure projects then the Arctic’s vast resources will be vital in that recipe for success. If the west is intelligent then it will reject the zero-growth agenda which has designated Canada’s Arctic as untouchable as fast as they reject the zero-sum neocon agenda of militarism and unilateralism.
The Arms Control Association (ACA), a US-based non-governmental organisation known for its developments in deterring the use of nuclear missiles, anti-ballistic missiles and other types of weapons, as well as for strengthening international security, has prepared a critical report on US President Donald Trump’s nuclear weapons policy and how much […]
It is deeply disappointing that Washington rejected Moscow’s rather simple proposal to repeat the easily understood adage of the Cold War era that a nuclear war cannot be unleashed, because there will be no winners.
A fragmentation of the global economic space by a policy of completely unlimited economic egoism and a forced breakdown is the road to endless conflict, trade wars and maybe not just trade wars. Figuratively, this is the road to the ultimate fight of all against all.
The boom in global military spending is due, first and foremost, to the battle between the United States and China for supremacy in Asia. The battle between the US and China is forcing other countries in the region to actively arm themselves. America’s NATO allies in Europe are also their military spendings.
