All good things come to an end; therefore, it was expected that the US support to Kurds and regional stability would come to an end–sooner or later. But before taking up the human rights line and saying “but they were the friends of the United States, fought side-by-side,”etc, one should also consider the political realities and historic precedents. Kurds are a people without a country, and that goes back to “secret deals” made back in...

Since the nineteen-sixties, the West has been on a steady trajectory of ‘liberation’.

First of all, (in the author’s opinion, due to the current lack of coordination among Western allies stemming from South Korea’s withdrawal from the General...

When Twitter Safety announced that it was taking actions against “information operations” directed at Hong Kong – informed observers could have immediately assumed that Twitter was not actually serious about stopping anything of the sort – but rather ensuring the information operation they are a part of was protected and those attempting to take action against it were purged from their platform. And of course, those...

The capitalist world is in decay. The West is rotting. Anger and nihilism are pouring from the imperialist empire whose citizens are frustrated; not at peace with themselves. Imperialist North America and Europe are furious at the countries like Venezuela and Cuba because their thinkers and leaders are exposing the terrible deterioration of values which is streaming from the neo-colonialist and historically imperialist countries. But it is...

He has just taken it to a new level, telling country after country that if...

One of the consequences of modern civilization is that change can happen with unexpected speed. Since the election of Donald J Trump to the White House, Americans who follow politics have become accustomed to witnessing events they never thought would happen. But during the last ten days, events have cascaded with such rapidity that one wishes there were a slow-motion button like on a movie camera. And yet, through all of this, the same phalanx...
