Not since the witchcraft hysteria of the Middle Ages have we seen such a display of human idiocy, credulity and absurdist behavior. I refer, of course, to the two-year witch hunt directed against President Donald Trump which hopefully just concluded last week – provided that the Hillaryites, Democratic dopes and […]
The Mainstream Media promotes the narrative of a Russian military intervention in Venezuela in order to fearmonger about Moscow’s global intentions and justify more robust US action there, while the Alternative Media is misleadingly portraying these events as supposed proof that Russia “saved” Venezuela.
The Trump decision, similarly to its stance on East Jerusalem, tilts the head of US foreign policy away from the basic principles of peace and security embedded in the UN Charter, as weak a document as it has proven to be over the years. It will also further muddy the waters with the Assad regime, ever keen to restore order as the bloody civil war painstakingly comes to a close.
The American Embassy in Oman announced that the US clinched a deal to use the Mideast country’s air and naval facilities in the strategic ports of Duqm and Salalah, which the Mainstream and Alternative Medias portrayed as being connected to “containing” Iran when it actually has much more to do […]
The US President Donald Trump’s decree on March 26 granting official US recognition to Israel’s illegal annexation of Syria’s Golan Heights does not create any new fact on the ground. Trump’s motivations are fairly clear — boost Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s prospects in the April election where the newly-established right-center […]
No one in the US or Britain ever faced trial for war-mongering and killing vast numbers of people. The lying media escaped well-deserved censure. As for the lying politicians who brought on this disaster, they blamed poor intelligence and bad luck. Those few who opposed the war of aggression remain sidelined or silenced.
The Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova acknowledged in Moscow on Tuesday that Russian “specialists” are indeed in Venezuela within the ambit of a 2001 military-technical cooperation agreement with Caracas. Zakharova underscored that Russia’s bilateral military cooperation with Venezuela is in accordance with the latter’s constitution and has legal underpinning, which […]
It is commonly believed in the United States that the country has no Grand Strategy since the end of the Cold War. A Grand Strategy is a vision of the world that one seeks to impose, and that all administrations must respect. So, even if you lose in one particular […]
Part I Partitioning of Yugoslavia during WWII (1941−1945) Regardless of the reached agreement on the Croatian ethnopolitical autonomy in Yugoslavia, the (Roman Catholic) Croatian traditional and historical animosity and even a hate against the (Christian Orthodox) Serbs remained extremely strong – a fact which both Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini […]
Poland is sending signals about the uncertain future of Fort Trump. There wouldn’t ordinarily be any cause to speculate about the prospects of building the much-talked about Fort Trump in Poland when considering that Warsaw is so gung-ho about it that its President offered to foot the estimated $2 billion […]
The criteria that we habitually use in politics to explain power games do not apply to Algeria. Its current leaders are above all impostors who have fabricated, one by one, false biographies in order to obtain the consideration of their compatriots. Inch by inch, they have clawed their way to the highest summit of the State.
When profit, unfair competition, and the pursuit of short-term fads are the ideals, trolling and manipulation of any kind will only continue to evolve. There have been instances where small groups of activists with perfectly reasonable objectives have copied the tactics of large corporations by using the astroturfing technique, i.e. the artificial creation of public opinion.
