Some Reflections on the United States and China

D342322

One of my favourite quotations is from the late former Prime Minister of China under Mao, Chou en Lai. He was interviewed by French television in the 1970s and was asked for his views on the effects of the French Revolution. Chou replied “too soon to tell.” That baffled his interviewer, but it points to an important difference…

The Evolution of the US-China Face-off in the South China Sea

USS

Today, the realities of the South China Sea have changed so drastically that we’re dealing with a whole new reality that is nothing like what we used to analyse or discuss. The tensions within this region were purely local in their nature and concerned China and its immediate neighbors…

S-400 Undermines the Global Military Cabal

S400

A great number of analysts these days would draw attention to the decision that both India and Turkey took to proceed with the purchase of Russia’s state of the art S-400 anti-air systems in spite of unparalleled political pressure Washington applied on both Ankara and New Delhi. Essentially, this decision represents a turning…

The “Deal of the Century” to Undermine the Palestinians’ Legitimate Rights

Peace for Prosperity, the so-called international conference promoted, with great fanfare, by Washington, and the personal brainchild of Senior Presidential Adviser Jared Kushner, started rather ingloriously in Bahrain, and has concluded without any results. According to its…

Iran vs. Spineless Europe

IRNCEN

Iran announced the second step in reducing her commitment under the 2015 so-called Nuclear Deal, officially known as The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), by exceeding the limit set by agreement of 3.67% uranium enrichment and 300 kg of enriched uranium accumulation. When asked by the media about his reaction, Trump says, “they know what they…

Washington’s “Airborne Raid” on Turkmenistan

TUR653422

It’s about time to carry on the discussion of the string of appointments of new US ambassadors to various states. In this context, one cannot overlook Washington’s recent attempt to “establish military foothold” in Turkmenistan that occurred on June 25. It’s curious that the role of the “landing task force” in this attempt…

Donald Trump Finds His True Calling

PA532322

It’s been said over and over that Donald Trump’s career as a businessman could not have prepared him for the Presidency. In anticipation of the first 4th of July celebration involving an American president, it was predicted that his career as a producer of live television would serve him well; but no one could…

The Roots of Trump’s Militarism

5a3d4d0efc7e9331188b4567

Little is spoken of today, particularly as Trump, Bolton and Pompeo are threatening war on three continents simultaneously, but the failure of diplomacy and the primacy of militarism. Problem is, those who drive these insane policies control and even own the “engines of reason and dissent.” Eisenhower described this process as he saw it…

What Will Be the Outcome of US-Led Cyber Warfare Against Iran?

750

Recently, media outlets have been reporting more and more often about U.S. preparations for attacks on Iran. They are not only referring to military threats issued by Washington against Tehran, which is trying to oppose U.S. hegemony, but also to non-lethal attacks (i.e. interference with Iranian infrastructure…

Cambodia Warns of Foreign Regime Change “At Any Cost”

CM564522

US and European-driven regime change efforts persist even in Asia where socioeconomic progress and stability have been on the rise. So persistent are these efforts that regional leaders have openly warned about them recently. Reuters in its July 4th article, “Cambodian PM says those seeking ‘regime change’ risk return to war,”…

Georgia, NOT What’s on the Surface but the REAL Story!

KA354353

What is going on? Is Dr. Michael Carpenter a mini-John Bolton in the making? The timing of the recent protests was to be expected. They sound as if Joe Biden is about ready to use Georgia for his “doomed” presidential campaign in much in the same vein as John McCain attempted to do back in August 2008…

Why Israel Attacking Syria Again?

F121119EI56

If remarks of Israeli prime minister Netanyahu were to be believed, the recently held meeting of US, Russian and Israeli National Security Advisers (NSAs) in Jerusalem was a ‘real diplomatic success.’ Netanyahu boasted this meeting off as the hallmark of Israeli-Russian cooperation towards establishing stability in the region. But…
