It is supported by two powerful lobbies: the military-industrial complex on the one hand, and the transnational corporations producing in China on the other.

The frozen lake of US-Iran confrontation is generating a pinging sound. The cracking of the ice is yet to produce that loud booming thunderclap. But these are early days. It was only last Thursday that the US and the three European states who are party to the JCPOA (2015 Iran […]
The Washington-based Quincy Institute, arguably the most intellectually stimulating American think tank nowadays, in its compulsively readable publication Responsible Statecraft featured on Tuesday an investigative report titled Weapons biz bankrolls experts pushing to extend Afghan War, authored by Eli Clifton, noted expert and journalist on US foreign policy.

The jaw dropping, sniping sessions between the press and government that were characteristic of the Trump administration were going to cease. “When the President asked me to serve in this role,” […]
Whenever American administrations change, usually only the heads of various agencies and a few folks below them are replaced.

Six days into the Joe Biden presidency, the first telephone conversation between POTUS and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin took place on Tuesday. Who took the initiative remains a tantalising detail, given the tense Russian-American relationship and the poor personal chemistry between the two leaders who are known to each […]
