It has finally come to the attention of Ukraine’s western masters that, to paraphrase a quote from WW2 about Hitler’s Atlantic wall, “NATO only made one big mistake when building their Fortress Ukraine, they forgot to put a roof on it”…

What does this have to do with the Pacific, and in particular the French possession of New Caledonia, we may ask? The recent revolt by the people of New Caledonia against their French colonial exploiters provides crucial insight into how colonialism actually operates and its consequences…

It is obvious to all, even the most ardent Ukrainian nationalists, that Ukraine is on the ropes, being battered relentlessly by a far better trained, prepared, and capable opponent. It is like watching a college boxer get hammered by a world champion heavyweight at this point, and one would think it would be in Ukraine’s immediate and long-term interest to cry uncle and try and make the best deal it can with Russia…

China’s visit to Belgrade on the 25th anniversary of the bombing of their embassy, when taken in conjunction with the cold shoulder given to the US Secretary of State on his arrival in China, should send a clear message to the US. Will the elites in Washington be clever enough to understand it is another question?

Just when we thought western hypocrisy over the war in Ukraine had reached rock bottom, lo and behold, they get out an excavator and keep digging. A series of precision strikes across the country over the last few days have devastated thermal and hydroelectric power plants, including the largest ones in Kiev and Kharkov…

The powerful earthquake that shook Taiwan on Wednesday, 3rd of April, was the strongest earthquake to hit the renegade Chinese province in 25 years. The 7.4+ earthquake has killed at least nine people and injured more than a thousand, and has sent a different type of shockwave throughout the world, particularly the west…

Iran had to retaliate for the Israeli attack on the consulate… and of course, the Israelis and Washington knew they would.   When it comes to measured retaliation, the timing, I can see several reasons: Firstly, of course, Israel’s failure in Gaza. It turned out that the Israeli army is not that strong. If they cannot finish off the so-called Hamas terrorists and genocide, the population in Gaza in six months…

Only now can we see that there may be more justification than just political mudslinging for Joe Biden being called “Genocide Joe.” Nonetheless, the US is starting to charge its tune over Gaza and the plight of the Palestinians, not out of altruist reasons, or from realizing that Israel has gone too far in getting “its pound of flesh from over the heart”, but instead from basic political pragmatism. This phrase has come to symbolize an insistence on receiving repayment or justice, even if it results in extreme or unreasonable consequences….

I needed some fresh mindful thinking on Turkey a paradigm shift after the recent Turkish local elections, and what they mean, if anything. It is now clear that Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has suffered an unprecedented defeat that represents more than an election defeat, and a win for the so-called more “progressive” West. This news may be a game changer, for both Turkish domestic politics and its foreign policy…

Any commentary on this subject should go beyond a matter of short memories, recriminations and what is going on in Southern Lebanon and Northern Israel, and that is just for starters. Then we have to toss in a bit of history about how Lebanon is a country based on a delicate balance of political factions, outside competing interests and ripe pragmatism. And to complicate things just a bit more, Hezbollah is more than a US-designated terrorist organization but…

The horrific attack on the concert hall “Crocus City Hall” on Friday 22nd March 2024 has rightly disgusted most reasonable people, regardless of their nationality. Chilling scenes of terrorists ruthlessly murdering unarmed civilians in the corridors, and concert hall of one of Moscow’s largest shopping and entertainment centers have been seen around the world. With, at the time of writing, at least 139 dead and hundreds more wounded, over 150 in critical care, the horrendous toll is only likely to rise further…

In recent days, the architect of Ukraine’s misery, Victoria Nuland, Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs, kind dispenser of cookies and terminal advice to the EU, and a woman (yes, I assumed her gender) with a visceral, some would say psychotic, hatred of all things Russian, has, it seems, opened her mouth and accidentally spoken the truth about the military conflict in Ukraine…
