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…

Facing with the aggressive propaganda of the Western minority, which, like the political establishment whose interests it represents, categorically does not wish to accept the rules of the contemporary multipolar international order, it is more necessary than ever to move into leading the creation of an international media alliance representing the global majority interests…

In the complex game being played by the major world powers in connection with the Taiwan issue, a remarkable event took place at the beginning of April this year, which attracted the attention of media around the world. This is about a tour of the PRC (or “Mainland China”) by former President Ma Ying-jeou accompanied by a certain Taiwanese youth group. Between May 2008 and May 2016 (i.e., two consecutive four-year terms), Ma Ying-jeou…

The dates of 7 October 2023 and 13 April 2024 will go down in the history of the Middle East as milestones that defined a new balance of power. The myth of Israel’s military superiority and the invincibility of its army will be gone forever. The Gaza massacre, which caused enormous loss of life and destruction, effectively isolated the Netanyahu government in the international community. Only the US and a few other Western powers provided diplomatic cover for his military provocations…

As I recently wrote, US-China ties, following Biden’s recent call to Xi, are unlikely to see any major improvement and progress from what has been a tit-for-tat trade war for the past several years. In fact, the recent visit of the US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has done more than anything else to prove the fact that the US-China ties, regardless of who occupies the White House, will continue to be shaped by great power competition…

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States believed that a unipolar world would last forever: year after year, day after day, it became increasingly blatant in its disregard for the interests of others and the opinions of the rest of the world. Then the concept of an international “rules-based order” was born: a group of American scholars, former and future officials, presented a paper at Princeton in 2006 entitled “A World of Freedom Under Law”…

Since the onset of the 21st Century, tensions around the world have been simmering. Great power rivalry has reached to a new apex since the culmination of the Cold War. The rivalry between China and the United States is considered one of the most significant and appalling issues of the era. Given the importance of maritime trade, the South China Sea and the Southeast Asian countries have emerged as the strategic focus of the rivalry between the two sides…

Black American’s Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s coincided with African’s fight for freedom from colonialists, and the response to both groups’ activities was similar in that the US and Europeans promised to allow the demanded rights but continued with exploitation. Martin Luther King Jr.’s (MLK) “I Have a Dream” speech (here) of August1963 occurred in the year when decolonization was occurring in earnest across Africa. Kenyans had secured internal governance in June, and would become a republic in December the same year…

After two weeks of the attack on its diplomatic representation in Syria by the Zionist State of Israel and in flagrant violation of the Vienna Conventions of 1961 and 1964 on diplomatic and consular relations (killing 13 people in the rank of guards of the Iranian revolution, diplomats, innocent women and children), the Islamic Republic of Iran responds with realism and reciprocity to the war entrepreneurs who, for decades, have been sowing terror and chaos on the Palestinian territory by killing all what moves…

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…

In mid-May the 33rd annual Arab League summit will be hosted in the capital of Bahrain, Manama. Some days ago, on the 6th of April, in preparation for the upcoming summit, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bahrain held a remote meeting with Arab ambassadors to the country. The meeting was chaired by Ambassador Ahmed Al Turaifi, Chief of Arab and African Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Abdulla Al Binkhali, Director-General of Administrative Services and Follow-up at the Royal Protocol…

In retaliation to Israel’s April 1st attack on the Iranian embassy in Damascus, Iran directly attacked Israel for the first time in the history of the two countries. Iran used more than 300 missiles to attack Israel, out of which only 15 missiles succeeded in hitting Israeli land near its Nevatim base. The latter killed two generals of the Iranian military in its attack on the Iranian consulate. Public pressure inside Iran mounted to an unprecedented level, demanding action against Israel…
