When German Chancellor Angela Merkel asked other EU members to accept more refugees (mostly Muslims from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan) as a "moral responsibility," many ordinary folks do not know that she is the same person who, back in 2010, vigorously argued against "multiculturalism" and condemned it as an "abject failure" in German society
It goes against every fiber of human decency to use a tragedy involving the murder of civilians by a terrorist in an aircraft to score political points. This is about murder, not politics. One day after warning Russia for its airstrikes in Syria, what happens? The USA precision-bombs a MSF hospital in Kunduz. Whoosh-BANG! God Bless America!
Arab media, in general, and commentators, in particular, tend to treat their readers with palpable pretentiousness. It is as if Arab media is the originator of wisdom and of all that is to be known. If there is any truth to that, Arab media would not be in such a poor state
In the run-up to the creation of ISIS, in the handling of the Syrian crisis and in the reaction to Russia's strikes against terrorists, we see yet another shining and blatant example of sheer hypocrisy and pig-faced insolence from the West. Who the Hell is Obama to opine about anything after his country's record?
Arrest Tony Blair for War Crimes in the Middle East. A few reasons why. On Saturday, 26th September Ahmed Mahdi Al Faqi was arrested and delivered to the International Criminal Court at The Hague. He is charged with war crimes, the deliberate destruction of religious or historical monuments in Mali and especially the ancient shrines of Timbuktu
Vladimir Putin - the most isolated man in the world according to the Western press - has now many allies; including China, India, Brazil, Iran, Iraq, Syria and so on. He is defeating the main ally of the West in Middle East, the vociferous and cruel tool named Isis, created and financed by the US, France, Britain, Turkey, Saudi Arabia
Many in America say Obama is a Muslim. Really? Then why has he sent his CIA and military to kill Muslims in North Africa and the Middle East? US involvement has caused Christian genocide. Even the Pope welcomes immigration but never demanded the US Congress to stop abortions and the selling of baby parts
In diametrical opposition to its fine founding aspirations, the UN has appointed Saudi Arabia's envoy to the United Nations Human Rights Council to head (or should that be "behead") an influential human rights panel. The appointment was seemingly made in June, but only came to light on 17thSeptember, due to documents obtained by UN Watch.
Nixon remains the face of political evil for many Americans. And young high school and college Americans are taught that Nixon's paranoia, insecurity, racism and disdain for all but his closest staff members were the preeminent causes for his resignation on August 9, 1974. Nixon's presidency is defined by his shortcomings and Watergate
The Russian Federation has been trying to solve the Syrian crisis practically since it began, understanding that to aid and abet terrorists and stand back while Islamic State takes more and more territory, fighting against the maintenance of President Assad in power is a recipe for disaster.
Those of us who were excited about the Millennium Development Goals at the turn of the century/Millennium have been bitterly disappointed at the way the first decade and a half has turned out, with the flames of numerous wars, chaos, desperation, hatred fanned by the corporatist elites. How did we allow this to happen and when will this end?
Europe faces a significant threat which is increasing. If IS takes Syria and creates, in their view, the Caliph, it will go up to a 10 out of 10 on the danger scale. I think we will continue to see these types of lone wolf attacks against European targets, which could be mass casualty. Pravda.Ru interviews international biowarfare expert Jill...
The other day, heard that saying from a friend. Neither he nor I were sure of the source or the date of origin. A good historical guess is that the powerful proverb goes as far back to the times China was ruled by numerous dynasties; the dynasties were preceded by the warlords who may well have learned to their own harm in not heeding the danger of...
