Western Propaganda: Damned if You Do, Damned if You Don’t

5566

Nations running afoul of US and European hegemony often find themselves the target of concerted, long-term propaganda campaigns. Without creating a media front capable of confronting this propaganda, virtually nothing a targeted nation does can improve its image among the global public, because no matter what it does, it will be…

Carnage: Who is Responsible?

sho

It may take many more years before the United States overcomes its commitment to the constitution’s First Amendment: the right for individuals to carry firearms, even though ‘free enterprise’ now makes available military-grade weapons that kill dozens of people a minute. For decades, Democrats have begged for ‘common sense gun reform’, however with their usual…

Women We Are Fighting For

IN453522

There are stories that are unrelated to the news, but can explain much better than many combat reports, why people like me are fighting against the Empire and imperialism, with such determination and vehemence. Not all stories are ‘big’ or ‘heroic’; not all include famous people or iconic struggles. Not all take place on battlefields. But they ‘humanize’…

Only Superman Can Save Julian Assange Now?

AS643532

Back in the early 1960s, us kids could not wait to get home from school to catch another TV episode of The Adventures of Superman. Back then TV was all black and white, and so was our view on the world. I’ll never forget the intro to the show and the part that told of the strange visitor from another planet who “fights…

Yellowstone Supervolcano and Americans Relocating to Russia

1046377426

Despite the fact that the United States has remained a Mecca of sorts for immigrants from all of the world for hundreds of years now, Americans themselves have been leaving their own country and moving abroad. According to various assessments, at present 3-6 million US citizens permanently reside outside of the United States…

Why Should Iran be Cherished and Defended?

4534322

As I pen this short essay, Iran is standing against the mightiest nation on earth. It is facing tremendous danger; of annihilation even, if the world does not wake up fast, and rush to its rescue. Stunning Iranian cities are in danger, but above all, its people: proud and beautiful, creative, formed by one of the oldest and…

The Americanization of the World and America’s Problem with Sex

EMY

A photograph in a recent Brookings report on the advent of nation-wide preschool in India shows four year olds surrounded by the typical Western educational paraphernalia that introduces them to ‘stuff’. European intellectuals have long lamented the Americanization of the world, and…

“Human Right Activists” Celebrate Facebook-Twitter Censorship

CE34222

All Facebook and Twitter accounts associated with Bangkok-based geopolitical analyst Tony Cartalucci have been deleted. The extent to which both American-based tech companies went to target Cartalucci could be seen in a recent Reuters article reporting on it. Written by Thai Reuters correspondent Patpicha Tanakasempipat…

Ongoing Armed Conflict in Yemen is Humanity’s Shame

YEM342222

It seems that nobody is willing to pay attention to the fact that the ongoing armed conflict in the poorest Arab country of the world – Yemen, has recently passed the five year mark. Throughout this time the country would be protected by a resistance movement of the Houthi insurgency from the Ansar Allah movement together with those…

Destabilizing Pakistan: Bookending Washington’s China Policy

4433

Much is being said of US activities aimed at China. Recent protests in Hong Kong together with a US-led propaganda campaign aimed at Beijing’s attempts to quell a growing terrorist threat in Xinjiang are aimed at pressuring the nation to fall back into line within Washington’s enduring unipolar international order. The latter…

Public Health Crisis: Tricky Ticks as “Ticking Time Bombs”

EBUN

Is this not something we have heard before, and not just when it makes it to Yahoo News – “Weaponised Bugs”, this time in the form of blood sucking ticks? A recent headline reads: US military chiefs ordered to reveal if Pentagon used diseased insects as biological weapons. Alarmist? Maybe not, when we see other headlines such as: Ebola…

Radio Free Europe Reveals Liberalism’s Decline

POl33

Democracy in Europe is failing. The U.S. State Department’s Radio Free Europe Radio Liberty RFE/RL says so. I know the spirit of legendary CIA spook Allen Dulles is spinning like a Russian ballerina in his grave at Greenmount Cemetery in Baltimore. And think of all those disappointed eastern Europeans who were told America would…
