Russia pivots to the dynamic East and fast developing Global South
2014 saw two pivotal events that led to the current conflict in Ukraine. The first, familiar to all, was the coup in Ukraine in which a democratically elected government was overthrown at the direction of the United States and with the assistance of neo-Nazi elements which Ukraine has long harbored. Shortly thereafter the first shots... Read More
Tsai. Hello Volodya. I hope you do not mind my calling you that. Zelensky. (Sobs, wordless.) Tsai. What is it Volodya? Calm down. Zelensky.

The Threatened Peoples of East Asia and Europe Can Stop the U.S. Drive to Restore its Global Domination.
“This is not going to be a war of Ukraine and Russia. This is going to be a European war, a full-fledged war.” So spoke Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky just days after berating the U.S. for beating the drums of war.

After Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, is it credible to trust the Intel Agencies on Wuhan?
“Surely, President Biden, you must be joking”! On May 26, these words should have poured forth from the White House Press Corps and the mainstream Commentariat when Joe Biden declared that he was placing the question of Covid-19’s origins securely in the hands of the “National Intel Agencies.” They were to report back in 90...

Ignorance or Denial by the U.S. Poses Grave Dangers
The recent China International Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai attracted little attention in the Western press but it is one more reminder that China is an economic and trading powerhouse that has surpassed the US. That is right, the word is “surpassed.” The CIIE also serves to remind us that China’s economic power now stands... Read More

Where are the self-styled anti-war activists - like DemocracyNow?
Through the summer the world has watched as protests shook Hong Kong.

Changing Course, They Set the U.S. on Dangerous Path of Confronting Russia.
Ever more antiwar voices are clamoring for a Stop Hillary Clinton movement in the Democratic primaries – and with very good reason.

Once an Enemy Always an Enemy
Does it not seem strange that, with the Cold War long over, the Paramount Enemies of the United States remain Russia and China?

The Latest New World Order Scam to Fuel the War Machine
Just weeks before Tax Day, April 15, Governor Deval Patrick, Obama’s “close friend,” signed into law a bond bill that dispenses $177 million in Massachusetts State Taxes to the Pentagon for construction and “upgrades” of U.S. military bases in the state.

Prosperity vs. Hegemony
China has stated its goals quite unambiguously. “A moderately prosperous society by 2020” is the first goal and “a strong socialist nation by 2049” as the second. But this may be simplified: China’s leadership wants its people to have a standard of living equal to that of the developed nations of the West. And that,... Read More
