Wallowing in the mire of a headline grabbing “suspense” in case “such a nasty woman” becomes the next President of the United States (POTUS), the fear-and-loathing Las Vegas cage-match between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton once again yielded a few stark facts that should be of the highest concern especially to the Global South.
This could explain why NATO governments have been so anxious in recent weeks to halt the Syrian-Russian offensive on Aleppo. Could it be that they need to extricate their special forces embedded with terrorist-dominated militants?
The bizarre US trend of encountering crazy clowns has come to Britain, reports say. The latest sighting perhaps was Britain’s foreign secretary Boris Johnson standing up in parliament and appearing to threaten Russia with war.
The regime change riots and torching of foreign companies which preceded Ethiopia’s imposition of a six-month-long state of emergency have more to do with waging a Hybrid War against China’s Maritime Silk Road and its Horn of Africa component than they do with airing out local socio-political grievances.
“Justice” may be a somewhat misplaced concept as far as the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) is concerned. US President Barack Obama vetoed it. Yet Capitol Hill - for the first time in his (now lame duck) presidency - overrode him. The potentially cataclysmic effects on US economy/foreign policy cannot be underestimated.
For a man who we're repeatedly told is "unelectable," Jeremy Corbyn seems pretty good at winning elections. He's been an MP since 1983, winning his seat eight times at a general election - and in 2015, he increased his vote in Islington North by 5.8%.
There’s an old movie in which the cops are closing in on their suspect hiding among the crowd at a packed cinema theatre. Sensing the net closing, the suspect suddenly yells out “Fire! Fire!” in order to induce a panicked stampede by the crowd so that he can escape the cops.
"Why Are We The Good Guys?" is the title of a brilliant 2012 book by David Cromwell of the media monitoring organization, Media Lens. The book challenges the dominant elite orthodoxy that whatever "mistakes" they may make, the US and its closest allies always mean well - and are an undoubted force for good in the world.
The US Central Intelligence Agency and its media outlets started the conspiracy – so let’s turn the tables on them. Could the CIA be setting Hillary Clinton up in a false flag hit for the purpose of blaming it on Russia?
The Joint Sea-2016 started this Monday; that’s the fifth annual China-Russia naval drill, featuring stalwarts from both navies in action at the eastern waters of Zhanjiang, in Guangdong province, the HQ of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy Nanhai Fleet.
The 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks illustrates what is wrong with US foreign policy and why Donald Trump is now a serious prospect for the US Presidency.
Tough negotiations between America and Russia’s top diplomats have managed to produce a tentative ceasefire plan for Syria. But Washington doesn’t really want a ceasefire. More likely, a respite for its regime-change proxies.
