Two Potentates Meet Up At St. Petersburg
There was something profoundly meaningful that the President of the United Arab Emirates Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan undertook a visit to Russia amidst the gathering storms in Ukraine. Conscious of the symbolism, Russian President Vladimir Putin received Sheikh Mohammed on Tuesday in a grand setting befitting a monarch — at […]
U.N. Projects The Planet’s Unlivable Areas By 2070 & 2100
The U.N. and International Red Cross have just published their 64-page study, “Extreme Heat: Preparing for the Heatwaves of the Future”, and it contains maps showing which areas of this planet will probably be unlivably hot by 2070, and then by 2100. (See more-detailed maps in https://www.pnas.org/doi/10.1073/pnas.2024792118 and especially at […]
Biden’s I2U2 Summit Diminishes India
India’s involvement with US President Joe Biden’s quixotic venture called “I2-U2 Summit” is bizarre, to put it mildly. India’s excellent relations with Israel and the UAE are best pursued on the highly successful bilateral tracks instead of complicating them with the Abraham Accords or the US’ big power rivalry with […]
Happy New Year !!!
The start of a new year can be a very moving experience. It’s a time when we reflect with gratitude on the past and set our hopes and intentions for the days ahead. What’s more, a new year gives us an opportunity to reinvigorate our enthusiasm for chasing goals and […]
Coronavirus Strikes Papua New Guinea
There was a time when it seemed Papua New Guinea had managed to dodge a bullet. Instances of SARS-CoV-2 were minimal, along with its disease, COVID-19. Through 2020, the country of eight million people recorded a mere 900 cases. The World Health Organization praised the PNG government in a September […]
Foreign Minister Wang Yi Articulated China’s New Model Of International Relations
China’s new model of International Relations actually isn’t all that new but is basically a revival of the world order that the UN originally envisioned since its founding but which had yet to materialize due to the Cold War and America’s subsequently failed efforts to impose its unipolar hegemony. Chinese […]
Coronavirus Education: Learning And Teaching From The Margins
The coronavirus student, a species brought forth in the world of education by a pandemic that has killed over 400,000 people in the United States and 100,000 in the United Kingdom, is a troubled creature. When universities and schools across the globe were given varying and often contradictory messages on […]
Happy New Year !!!
Dear friends! 2020 hasn’t been a great year and there’re no many of us who wouldn’t agree. From wrecking our health and sanity to forcing us to adopt ways and means of living and working that weren’t a piece of cake to adapt to. We’ve all had a very difficult […]
What A Caveman Said: To Perceive That Which Is Eternal
Fr. Alexander Schmemann described “secularism” as the greatest heresy of our time. He didn’t describe it as a political movement, nor a threat from the world outside Christianity. Rather, he described it as a “heresy,” that is, a false teaching from within the Christian faith. What is secularism? Secularism is […]
USA: The Slippery Slope Of Egalitarian Racism
The reactions to the murder of black George Flyod by a white policeman do not refer to the history of slavery in the United States, but – like the systemic opposition to President Trump- to a profound problem in Anglo-Saxon culture: Puritan fanaticism. The domestic violence that rocked that country during the two civil wars of Independence and Secession must be remembered in order to understand current events and prevent their resurgence.
We are continuing the publication of Thierry Meyssan’s book, “Before Our Very Eyes, Fake Wars and Big Lies”. In this episode, the author shows that post-colonial France was recruited by the United Kingdom and the United States to join the wars against Libya and Syria, without both powers informing her about their “Arab Spring” project.
