The appropriate name for the UK’s behavior of clinging to its former colonies and herding them to advance its neocolonial goals can be understood through reviewing Stockholm’s Syndrome: London behaves like the extreme version of the captors in this story. Stockholm’s Syndrome attained its name from strange behavior exhibited by victims that developed empathy and sympathy for their captors, and London as a former captor of colonies tried to conjure up a misplaced sense of partnership with its former colonies, now hostages…

The income gap between the rich and the poor remains the biggest global problem facing human society as a whole. After the collapse of the USSR (whose social achievements served as a powerful incentive for the poor to fight for their rights in the developed world), there were no moral constraints and the rich went on a rampage: the number of not only millionaires but also billionaires increased dramatically. The gap between the richest and the poorest grew ever wider…

A multipolar world is taking shape even in the military realm, as can be inferred from Houthi’s ability to curtail the US and UK goal of propping up Israeli genocide in Gaza at all cost. Houthis persistence and continued ability to inflict damage on Israeli, American, and British vessels transiting through Bab el Mandeb until Israel lifts its medieval blockade on Gaza shows that the western empire’s military dictatorship can be resisted by small countries. Meanwhile, the western empire desperately seeks diversion from its failure in the Red Sea…

Recently, the countries of the Global South have been actively expanding their ties, finding new areas of cooperation, creating their own integration associations. In general, they are trying in every possible way to restore justice, to become full-fledged members of the world community, as it is now accepted to say, “independent poles of power”. This is causing serious discontent and even irritation in the West, especially in the US and Britain—the Anglo-Saxons, used to parasitising the rest of the world…

On February 20th, 2024, the US vetoed for the third time a UNSC resolution presented by Algeria, calling for a Ceasefire in Gaza. The resolution was supported by 13, out of 15 members, but the self-styled democratic Washington could not stand letting the majority decide; note the hypocrisy. The veto shows Americans’ commitment to keeping the potential elimination of Palestinians going. Similarly, the UK declined to support this resolution, showing its deep support or tacit coalition with Washington…

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…

At no time, at least in its modern history, has Myanmar ever been a peaceful place – and for that, the British Empire is to blame. For the sake of administrative convenience, London grouped together in one nation peoples of vastly different ethnic origins, languages and cultures who previously had no idea they were living together in a single country. Following its independence in 1948, Burma was driven by continuous localized conflicts between numerous ethnic groups and the central government…

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…

In the opening weeks of 2024, the US and British unilaterally launched several large-scale missile and air strikes on targets in territory held by Ansar Allah (referred to as the “Houthis” across the Western media) in Yemen. The strikes follow a campaign of missile strikes and boardings conducted by Ansar Allah against commercial shipping destined to and from Israel in response to Israel’s ongoing punitive operations in Gaza…

Recently, the US and UK have attacked the Houthis in Yemen. The former countries hold that their attacks on Yemen were in response to the Houthi attacks on their ships in the Red Sea. According to US officials, they have attacked 16 sites in Yemen, targeting Houthi militants. On the other hand, the Houthis have announced that their response to these attacks will be beyond the expectations of their enemies…

According to a recent Council of Foreign Relations report, Russia’s growing influence results from a massive disinformation campaign. Those who read the report with an objective eye will quickly notice the earmarks of America’s disinformation campaign against the Russians. Where Russia-Africa relations are concerned, CFR and other sources cite Wagner PMC, weapons trade, and some form of Russian neocolonialism as major factors of the so-called “Russia shift.” That notorious “domino effect” Washington used to justify the Vietnam War appears to already be in motion in Africa…

In a recent hearing to the US Congress trying to convince the latter to approve another US$61 billion in aid for Ukraine to fight and defeat Russia, US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin said that if Russia defeats Ukraine, US forces will be fighting Russian forces in (mainland) Europe soon. This will be a major conflict that could become World War Three. The propagation of the Russian ‘threat’ comes against the backdrop of a recent White House revelation that, unless fresh aid is approved, the US government will run out of funds to support Ukraine…
