The Euro-Atlantic civilization, guided by three noxious ocean powerhouses, USA, (finally more a matrix than a nation-state), England (intellectually the most dangerous of the three, since Bacon or Locke) and France (since 1789 the useful idiot of the infernal trio), is a civilization of stubborn minds, of rebellious angels, to use the Bible
One of the most insidious, yet effective, political strategies in existence is what Adolf Hitler called The Great Lie Theory. Simply put, the great lie theory states that if political leaders take great lies, reduce them to slogans, and unremittingly repeat them they can make people believe that "hell is heaven" and "heaven is hell"
The heroic efforts of the Syrian Army against western-backed terrorists are liberating vast areas from this demonic scourge, returning law and order and safety to the beleaguered civilians. Meanwhile the weapons inspectors praise the Syrian authorities for their cooperation, while stating that access to certain sites was blocked by insurgents.
The twentieth century saw the awakening of the United States of America as a global imperialist power, following in the footsteps of its former colonial master, Great Britain and its mentor, France, in drawing lines on maps, setting up bases and syphoning off resources. The first decade of the new millennium draws an end to this chapter.
More than two and a half years on, Israel's purported neutrality in the Syrian conflict and the United State's fanfare rhetoric urging a "regime change" in Damascus were abruptly cut short to unveil that the Israeli factor has been all throughout the conflict the main concern of both countries
India is an extremely difficult country to fathom. It has conflicting national interests and seems caught between two diametrically opposite worlds - one that belongs to the elitist major league players on the global checkerboard and the other which is more realistically personified by its sheer poverty and misery
Game Over", so to speak. The dark times are here in America. You are on your own. The federal-state-local governments are broke. No more benefits for hungry children, homeless veterans and civilians. No more full-time employment with benefit packages
Iran seems successful in turning the Iraqi "strategic" agreement with the US into a tactical one, while it is succeeding in turning its own tactical accords with Iraq into a strategic bondage of the country. The burgeoning US-Iran rapprochement will only reinforce this trend to reinforce Iran hand in Iraq
The display of utter childishness and total irresponsibility from the US Congress, shutting down sections of the US Federal Government, sending people home unpaid, giving workers four hours to clear out their offices before receiving a boot up the behind is part of a wider issue: the divorce of the politicians from the people they represent.
What an amazing month September 2013 has been in the history of mankind. It would be hard to go past the events unfolding in Syria or the peripheral politicking that has taken place surrounding events in Syria
Saudi Arabia's rulers are more ruthless than those in North Korea or anywhere else. Why aren't members of the US Congress championing sanctions against Saudi Arabia instead of Russia, Cuba and Iran? Why does the world's most powerful nation bow down before the House of Saud even as it becomes less dependent on Persian Gulf and Saudi oil
Secretary of Blair War Crimes Foundation asks UK Secretary of State for Justice to initiate penal sanctions against Blair for war crimes. The use of depleted uranium (DU), white phosphorous, mercury, napalm equivalents and other toxins against a civilian population penned up in Fallujah in November 2004, were a significant war crime.
Since the US-UK project on Syria is back, invoking Syria's President as Hitler - as previously, Slobodan Milosevitch, Saddam Hussein, and Colonel Quaddafi in earlier "Crusades" - it is instructive to note how the ludicrous claims mirror the strategy of Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Reich Minister of Propaganda.
