Many politicians around the world strongly condemn not only Israel’s inhumane policy in the Gaza Strip, when peaceful Palestinians are being slaughtered, but also the hypocrisy, duplicity, pharisaism and arrogance of the West. In one case, the current worthless rulers of Europe condemn the defence of their citizens in Donbass by Russia, which is complying with all international rules of engagement. In the other, when Israel started to destroy civilians in the Gaza Strip (which according to international laws is considered a policy of genocide), the West welcomes and applauds, defending its protégé in the Middle East in every possible way…

After launching a large onslaught on Israel on October 7, the Palestinian organization Hamas killed over 1,400 people, the majority of whom were civilians, and captured over 200 more. Since then, ground forces have moved into the enclave and Israel has attacked several areas of Gaza ruthlessly. To date, almost 10,000 people have died, the majority of them were women and children. Protests demanding a stop to hostilities and showing solidarity with the Palestinians erupted globally. The Saudi Arab News daily stated that “Western and Arab states have found themselves divided.”…

The vast majority of people on the planet today publicly condemn individuals who still call themselves “defenders of human rights” and other “freedoms” for actually being the primary culprits when it comes to defending the values they so loudly proclaim to adhere to. Particularly with regards to offenses committed against non-Western populations or those perceived by the West as not belonging to the “right” side. In fact, this did not take much to be exposed. From the perspective of the Western order and those who blindly follow it, the blood of the “wrong” people is worthless…

It is an accepted fact that when a major world power gets involved in a foreign conflict, it will always find local sympathizers – we could call them helpers or even collaborators – who, whether motivated by ideology or forced to do so by circumstances – support external intervention in the fate of their country. However, there is no guarantee that the world power that embarks on a war will be successful, either militarily or politically. Throughout history…

The United States’ unwavering backing for Israel, while ignoring the Palestinians, has provoked anger throughout the Global South, particularly in the Islamic world. Several nations held anti-American protests, which included the United States Capitol. For a few hours, 500 regular Americans—many of whom were Jewish—took control of the Capitol Building and demanded that Palestine be saved. The activities of the US administration were so heinous that most of those present at the Human Rights Council in Geneva…

The current crisis over Gaza has demonstrated the growing rejection by developing countries of the Western powers’ position. While the United States and some Western European states expressed their full support for Israel, without condemning Netanyahu’s actions to blockade the Gaza Strip and deprive its residents of electricity, water, food, and medicine, most countries in the Global South advocated abandoning the practice of collective punishment and preserving the lives of civilians and, finally…

This autumn turned out to be rich in conflict events in politics. There is probably a certain regularity here, as politicians have finished their summer holidays; the world is still torn by a number of conflicts and contradictions; and the likely warfare in some regions, as a rule, perceives autumn as the best period for launching offensive operations. The Russian-Ukrainian military-political crisis has caused a serious division in the international arena, while the economic war of the collective West led by the United States against the Russian Federation in the form of tough sanctions has predetermined the search…

As US-Chinese tensions grow and as it becomes increasingly clear the US is unable to compete with China head-to-head in terms of development, trade, and investment, especially in regions along China’s periphery, the US is resorting increasingly to asymmetrical measures including political coercion, subversion, and even violence. US military aggression and political subversion, particularly in Southeast Asia, spans many decades. Besides the Vietnam War and the related conflicts which raged across Laos, Cambodia, and even Thailand in the 20th century, more recently…
