Every year opportunistic pseudo-journalists employed by so-called news organizations, in a cynical ploy to bolster their ratings and profits, rant about a so-called war on Christmas. To support their contentions, they cite examples of retailers and advertisers using the phrases "Happy Holidays" and "Season's Greetings" instead of "Merry Christmas,"
Twenty years after the creation of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the High Commissioner Navi Pillay has issued a mixed report, claiming successes over the last two decades but also pointing out that a UN Office is far from being sufficient to address the issue. Suppose countries just obeyed the law?
Diplomacy: "Tact and skill in dealing with people", "The art or practice of conducting international relations, alliances, treaties and agreements ... relations between nations." As Ministers utter inane, ill-considered, uninformed statements, they also appear to compete as to who can construct the most idiotic policy.
A wise decision by the Ukraine not to fall into the European Union's web, not to fall for the siren's song, not to believe the false promises of prosperity, not to follow the starry-eyed misguidedness of some of Ukraine's young population who see the EU as some sort of Nirvana. Viktor Yanukovich just saved Ukraine, and them, from a terrible fate.
The story of Malala Yousafzai, the 16 years old Pakistani activist for girls' education, is tragic, not because she endured the assassination attempt by the Taliban in 2012, but because her historical narrative has been "misused" for the Western culture war around the world especially as a propaganda tool of the West for the "war on terror"
The United Nations Organization is checking information coming from Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, that children and youths were snatched from a hospital and murdered, under Operation Likofi, launched by the authorities last week to tackle delinquency in the capital city.
Russia had to deal with National Socialism, Marxism, Eugenics, Lysenkoism and many more. All methods of distorting information have been committed to prove the alleged validity of these theories. Misinformation, fabrication, mythology, propaganda. Because what is offered cannot be qualified in any other way than myth, nonsense and absurdity
Who knew? President Obama should have made sure that his staff checked out the performance credentials of CGI Federal before awarding it millions of dollars to push out a key element of the President's signature healthcare initiative
Go to Qatar, you will find no Qatari; go to New York, you will find no New Yorker; go to Paris or to London you will find no local people. Local people are retarded, jingoistic and bigots, to speak like the NYT and its satellite newspapers around the world; or the survivors are a mere folkloric fauna for international tourism
London, UK. Police have released three women being held in conditions described as "horrific" for three decades by an elderly couple in their late sixties, who after arrest were released on bail. Similar cases revealed in Austria (Natascha Kampusch) and in Cleveland, Ohio, raise the question, how many other victims are there? A lot, it would seem.
To briefly review, the facts are conclusive that JFK was on terrible terms with the CIA and the Joint Chiefs. He had refused to support the CIA organized Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. He had rejected the Joint Chiefs' "Operation Northwoods," a plan to commit real and faked acts of violence against Americans and blame Castro
What you are about to see in these photographs is as shocking as it is horrific, as they expose the Moroccan-European Union sustainable fishing policy in Western Saharan waters. Under international law, the fish stocks belong to the Saharawi people. Why then does Morocco fish these stocks and why does the EU negotiate them with Morocco?
One question that often arises in philosophical debates is, "Do the ends justify the means?" This question has become so popular that it often serves as a fulcrum for the plots of movies and television shows. Two such television shows were Leverage (2008-2012) and Damages (2007-2012)
