Historically, this latest eruption of US militarism at the start of the 21st Century is akin to that of America opening the 20th Century by means of the U.S.-instigated Spanish-American War in 1898. It is the Unlimited Imperialists along the lines of Alexander, Rome, Napoleon and Hitler who are now in charge of conducting American foreign policy
With English as the world language and the compliant media or presstitutes in Washington's service, Washington has been able to control the explanation, blame Putin for the crisis, and force Europe to breakup its economic and political relations with Russia by imposing economic sanctions
Projects are under way in Germany and in Madrid, Spain, to set up psychological screening programs aiming to monitor development from childhood onwards, with a view to identifying risk factors and preventing them from becoming pathological, causing enormous social expense downstream.
References to the "military industrial complex" are agonizingly silly particularly since the man who coined the term --President Dwight Eisenhower--was as ruthless as his CIA director John Foster Dulles
Islamic State is not just a threat to the West, it is a threat to Humankind. Its radicalism depends on the perversion of Islam, the manipulation of the message of Allah through Mohammed, the dessecration of the Holy Book, the Qu'ran, blasphemy against Islam and the spreading of hatred to engender violence. Handle IS like you handle a snake.
In the cities and towns of the United States and Western Europe citizens are on edge about matters of life-security: employment, food, shelter, clothing, health insurance, education. Millions are unemployed or just culled from the statistical tables, forgotten. Children are going hungry
Lose a language, lose a culture and a collective history. Lose thousands of languages, and the world's wonderful cultural diversity becomes impoverished. This is precisely what is happening - globalization has played its part in placing under threat around half of the world's current seven thousand languages.
Libya's former colonial power and one of the NATO criminals during the 2011 war smells blood - literally. And that isn't the only thing Italy smells. The steeling of Libya's oil and deposits in the imperialists banks turned out to be insufficient to boost the economy of the largely bankrupt European countries, of which Italy is one of the worst -...
In recent days, the hyperbole has risen to hysteria level with senior members of the British government outdoing each other to make the most infantile, irresponsible, insolent and insulting remarks against Russia and its President, Vladimir Putin.

To legalize or not to legalize? That is the question which has claimed pride of place and which has divided generations for several decades. Considered by some as an innocuous weed, or natural plant, termed by others as a dangerous drug which can lead to psychosis, let the debate begin.
"It's really 19th century behavior in the 21st century, you just don't invade another country on phony pretexts in order to assert your interests." (Secretary of State, John Kerry, "Meet the Press", 2nd March 2014.) Various professional psychology sites state succinctly...
The recent outburst of anti-Russian rhetoric of Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė is certainly very bizarre in view of her curriculum vitae.

The recent Minsk ceasefire agreement that was agreed to by both sides of the Ukrainian civil war lasted about an hour. It comes as no surprise as the first one was broken as well.
