On February 7, 2024, the US assassinated a top commander of Iraq’s Paramilitary Organization, Kataeb Hezbollah (here). This attack, like others conducted by the US, was calculated to cause terror, as it was random and, in the capital, where any person can be. Such attacks also attract thousands of outraged and scared onlookers, which greatly pleases Washington and London. However, Washington should have known that none of these terror attacks have ever scared all Iraqis enough to acquiesce to the US or Anglo-Saxons’ long-term colonization of Iraq…

The US is Imposing its Views and Deciding For Kenya

Democracy is (or should be) a form of government in which policy decisions are influenced by the Majority of the population. However, this is not what Washington has been doing with its ally Kenya. An article published in the East African (here) ran a revealing title…

The UK’s efforts to shed its barbaric-colonizer badge may be driving its British Army Training Unit in Kenya (BATUK) to launch a half-baked information campaign of painting itself as a victim of Cholera from China. As the UK continues sponsoring the Israeli Massacre of Gazans, bombing Houthis in Yemen, and signing a mutual defense agreement with Kyiv’s Nazi regime, its media and military are hell-bent on deceiving Kenyans that BATUK was experiencing a cholera outbreak linked to China, a claim that rapidly spread across the social media before it was quietly retracted…

US President Joe Biden’s administration’s efforts to stop Texas Governor Gregg Abbott from keeping illegal immigrants away shows that the US Empire is in dire need of foreign workers and talents. Major policy and media outlets including Forbes, (here), Financial Times (here), George Mason University and FWD.us (here), and the Council for Foreign Relations (CFR) (here) show that Washington’s empire cannot compete without immigrants ‘top’ global talents…

The US national debt reached $34 trillion on December 29th, 2023, and the congress called it a milestone (here). Why? Because congressmen and Wall Street know that it won’t be paid; at least not through American sweat and blood. Oppositely, Iran has 1.2 trillion cubic feet, and 158 billion barrels of proven gas and oil reserves respectively, resources the US Empire wants to steal. Therefore, when the mainstream media (MSM), Washington’s hidden forked tongue tells you how Iran sponsors terrorists or has Nuclear-weapon ambitions, keep…

While South Africa’s effort to refer Israel to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for the latter’s possible contravention of the Genocide Convention is commendable, it may not lead to the desired relief. The ICJ concluded hearings for the genocide case, and as the world awaits the ruling, it is crucial to bear in mind that the court and its underlying system are unlikely to deliver Justice to Gazans. Restraining optimism in the process is crucial not only in preventing disappointment, but also in reserving mental energy to seek practical alternatives for sustainable peace…

Christmas 2023 happened under a heavy cloud of contestation in Kenya as the Archbishop of Nairobi rejected the pope’s edict requiring priest to bless gay couples as the Vatican had directed on December 18th. As we await for the New Year, concerns of whether Christmas or the church will maintain its historical sense is pertinent, amidst Neoliberals’ Legitimizing Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transsexuals, and Queer (LGBTQ) movement. Similarly, the question of whether societies will continue creating people capable of reproducing, with stable sexual and religious identities…

Russia started delivery of free grain to Somalia, the first country in which the US implemented the model it had been prevented from attempting by the presence of the USSR. The result of this model of interference for 34 years is evident in poverty and food insecurity not only in Somalia but other countries with US and allied bases. Russia’s delivery will be followed by similar free aid to other countries, including where the US has military and drone bases spying on and distracting the host governments from promoting food production, but instead enlisting them to fight ‘terrorism’…

As the US operation against Gaza using Israeli partner continues for two and a half months due to US efforts of shooting down UN resolutions for a ceasefire, Lloyd Austin announced Operation Prosperity Guardian against Houthis in Yemen, attesting to the US unexplained love for war that can be likened to pyromania. It could be a matter of time before the American soldiers from the comfort of their ships and aircraft start lobbing bombs and bullets at impoverished defenseless Yemenis, already in the worst humanitarian disaster, just like Israelis are doing to Palestinians…

Amidst wild claims that the world has only up to 2030s to prevent civilization’s collapse due to global warming and climate change, it is puzzling that Biden proposed the construction of an oil pipeline from the Middle East to Europe to cement continued use of fossil fuel, and accompanying CO2 emissions many decades into the future. Again, Biden did not propose harnessing the abundant solar energy in the Middle East’s deserts and transferring it to Europe, if the promise of green solar energy is to be taken seriously…

The US and Europe purport to start a political peace process for the Israel-Palestinian conflict, only to prevent other actors from seeking sustainable peace. The reality that The West is behind Israel’s ‘mowing’ Palestinians’ is accentuated in Josep Borell’s speech at the Opening of EU’s Ambassador’s Conference 2023. Evidence of these parties starting a process only to preclude others can be seen in the Oslo Accords that began in 1978 at Camp David in a period when the US was trying to act like a responsible player compared to the USSR, but to advance its interest. The Camp David Accords led to the Oslo Accords in 1993 and 1995, which were supposed to culminate in the peaceful coexistence of Israelis and Palestinians. However, careful review shows that The West gave Israel what it wanted, a legal recognition by Palestinians…

The workweek beginning on 29th October and ending on the 3rd November 2023 is historically significant as European powers return to Africa, in a miniaturized recast of the Berlin conference. Germany and the UK seem to seek to mark territories while offering little to Africans. Chancellor Olaf Scholz visited Nigeria and Ghana, the German president toured Tanzania and Zambia and the UK’s King Charles III toured Kenya…
