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.
Roll up! The UN circus is in town with its General Assembly Annual Debate! Get your tickets ladies and gentlemen to see our collection of freaks, clowns and weird and wonderful creatures from the four corners of the globe spouting hot air in a piss and wind rendition of "all together now". What policymaking can we expect for the forthcoming years?
President Obama said, "...my administration has tried diplomacy and sanctions, warning, and negotiations - but chemical weapons were still used by the Assad regime." Even if Assad gives up his chemical weapons and joins the Chemical Weapons Convention, prohibiting their use, the Syrian crisis will still not be solved
Senator John McCain, recently Iran's new atomic energy chief pledged increased cooperation with the U.N. nuclear watchdog, delivering a conciliatory message ahead of talks between the two sides this month over Tehran's disputed atomic activities.
Senator John McCain's insolent and arrogant rant in Pravda.Ru in response to President Vladimir Putin's balanced and measured communication to the people of the United States of America was as disappointing as it was predictable, underlining the danger lying beneath the surface of the corporate elitists who run Washington's policies.
Amerika must be in serious trouble if McCain is their best response to President Vladimir Putin's article in the New York Times. The US saw how he failed at the debates with Obama. The world sees how puny Obama stands next to Vladimir Putin. So, McCain actually thinks the world will listen to anything he says?
Barely within a week, we have read two articles coming out of Russia and America. The first one came from President Putin, a substantive, well-thought, elegant display arguing for the defense of international law. Then, the world woke up to a deplorable article written by Obama's mouthpiece and, so-called Republican, Senator, John McCain
Oh dear. It's the Hitler thing again. Considering the barely imaginable oceans of dollars US war departments spend on selling their newest illegal, manufactured war of aggression, they certainly spend little on wordsmiths. In the UK the literacy level of the military has been lowered to seven years old. The juvenile limitation has clearly spread to...
Russian President Putin knows a lot more about Syria than our President Obama does. Now, if there was ever any doubt, the entire world knows that our President Obama is indecisive and has no concept of military strategies or tactics. Putin is leading his country away from the suppressive environment of communist-based totalitarianism
