Last week NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Council of Europe's Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland stated there was no desire for a Cold War with Russia. Both these politicians are Norwegian and highly experienced and as cunning as a fox
Few, if any, of the correct questions were asked in the grand jury hearing to decide whether policeman Darren Wilson would be indicted for killing Michael Brown. There are a large number of videos available online that show that the first thing that police do when they arrive is to use force
Why would cops in America shoot, strangle, or beat to death an unarmed person? Because they can. It is a sad reality in today's America that cops can not only do these things with immunity and impunity. They can actually do them in front of thousands, sometimes millions, of witnesses, and still get away with it
When Osama bin Laden was killed in cold blood in Pakistan and many demanded to see his death-photos for verification, President Obama refused and said, "That's not who we are," which begs the question: Who are the Americans?
Globalization, together with the parallel collapse of "actually existing socialism", defined the New World Order (NWO), which has been established in the last thirty years or so, following the rise of globalization and the parallel collapse of the ex-soviet bloc
The failure of foreign policy pursued for two decades by London and Washington results in the sad reality that the citizens of these two countries dare not step off an aircraft in a growing number of countries, while at home, the advice today is "Run, Hide and Tell" in the increasing probability of a terrorist act. Where lies the responsibility?
This Monday, November 24, the spark ignited by a 12-person grand jury's decision in a Missourian community where black people predominate (67 percent in 2010 census) will have most white Americans confounded why blacks behave as they do, shaking their heads in disbelief
November 25 is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and this year marks the twentieth year since the Beijing Platform for Action, which launched the program for gender equality. Two decades on, the onus is on actions by men to support women, to form a global inclusive society. Are we capable of this? Then let's do it!
Such a great power as Russia has major responsibilities at this particularly difficult time in the Middle East. Those circles in the West and the USA that insist on excluding Russia for the sake of regional peace are mistaken. Rather than isolating Russia, relations need to be improved by the adoption of a compassionate and honest approach
Canada has been assimilated by its bed-partner, the USA, joining a list of three hated and isolated pariahs in the international community which voted against a UN Resolution to combat the glorification of Nazism... and practices which contribute to fuelling racism, xenophobia and intolerance. This group is composed of Canada, Ukraine and the USA.
Earlier this past summer, when he found the time and managed to tear himself away from another arduous day on the links, U.S. President Barack Obama said this about the deepening Ukraine crisis: 'All options are on the table'. Ostensibly that cryptic line was Obama's response to Crimea's unanimous vote for secession from Ukraine.
The G20 summit which just ended revealed, by its actions and omissions, a great deal about the present New World Order (NWO) of neoliberal globalization and, even more significantly, about Russia's uneven relationship with this criminal Order. Criminal, in a double sense
On November 10, 2014, at the Kaufmann Concert Hall, the 92nd Street Y presented a political heavyweight, Senator McCain from Arizona, tagged along by a grinning Robert Lloyd "Bob" Schieffer, a veteran journalist and anchor for CBS news! You may wonder what a notorious Republican neocon has to do with an ultra liberal Democrat? But then if you do a...
