I began my day watching the video of the beheading of an American photo journalist, James Foley, 40 years of age, decapitated in the most barbaric, depraved demonstration of cowardice I have witnessed in many years. James Foley was not captured because he was an American but this was the reason he lost his life to ISIL, another creation of Western...
There is a lot of gnashing of teeth in the USA over the events taking place in Ferguson, Missouri, sparked by the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown. There is something for every interest group in this tragic event: race relations (and history); media manipulation; militarization of American civilian law enforcement
The folly of the Iraq invasion, a copy-paste of imperialism in the twenty-first century, shows, along with previous imperialist ventures, that deployment does not work. Iraq today is predictably worse off than under Saddam Hussein. The answer is in development, and the key word here is education... and psycho-analysis, starting in primary school.
The end was near when people realized the Fuehrer's promise of peace and prosperity was no longer believable. It was the same for Communist Russia. Solzhenitsyn said, "The Soviet Union was the Russian people held hostage by the Communists". Lenin and Stalin mesmerized almost everyone
Rumor has it that the Circus in Kiev is short of a clown, because he escaped and is parading as the President. Or was it the nuthouse? Or a chocolate factory? Doesn't matter, one look at Ukraine and if the situation were not so serious, it would provide laughing material for men's clubs for the next century and a half. Introducing Choco the Clown!
If humanitarian aid is needed, it is a disgrace for President Poroshenko, who over a month ago vowed to quash the unrest in the south-east of the country within one day. The bottom line is not everyone is as dishonest as Poroshenko and his toyboy political clowns in Kiev. Maybe the Trojan Horses he sees are pink elephants in disguise. Hic!
Experimental, unapproved drugs are allowed for therapies in the infected areas in West Africa, where Ebola has caused over 1,000 victims since March, when the first cases were reported in the Republic of Guinea. Why now, five months later, does the WHO take such an unprecedented decision when there have been no travel restrictions imposed to date?
As my heart bleeds for those of you suffering in Gaza and elsewhere in Palestine, I want to add my voice to those who are encouraging you to consider revising your strategy of resistance to Israeli occupation. Hopefully, this offer will reach new ears among those of you who are 'ordinary Palestinians' but also strategic thinkers
Here we go again! The venomous, toothy neocon, John McCain, is coming out with another scheme. He is telling Vietnamese, that "it's time for America to ease ban on selling lethal arms to the communist country; it has progressed on human rights!"
Today we are speaking about the humanitarian situations in Donetsk, Lugansk, after the Fascist massacres in numerous cities in Eastern Ukraine earlier this year. Today we are speaking about the massacre of the Yazidi by ISIL, today we are speaking about Syria... and yesterday? And tomorrow? Humankind, a failed species.
After the West imposed three phases of sanctions against Russia, after Russia repeatedly stated that sanctions will lead nowhere good, after the business community in Russia closed ranks around President Putin and after the west continued to rattle the sabre, Russia hits back. Where will this spiral and how far down?
This missive is not about the women's rag. For sure, I have no problem with the magazine. The title refers to Canada's Prime Minister, Steve (gave him some male enhancement) Harper. At issue is this: his government's misguided position on Ukraine. They've got it wrong; right from the get-go.
Ebola Virus Disease has been ravaging communities since March this year when the first case was reported in the Republic of Guinea. Since then it has spread to three other countries (Liberia, Sierra Leone and now, Nigeria), has caused 932 deaths among 1,711 cases and has become the worst outbreak in history. And what has been done to prevent it?
