Ukraine: Oval Office Invasion Yarn Runs Out of Fuel

Vienna, Austria: If there would be a Nobel Prize for negative innovations Pres. Biden and His Secy. of State Blinken would stand foremost qualified. Since the beginning of Cold War our world had heard that grand American yarn “Russians are coming”. Excepting for Afghanistan and a very short stay in Syria to break ISIS backbone, which they efficiently did, Russians[Read More…]

The Ukraine Riddle & the War of Words

The Ukraine Riddle & the War of Words

Today being a Sunday, I happened to hit upon 2 gloom stories [] []  on a world crisis smothering at the Ukrainian front, a situation that has the potential to blow out into human extinction. It seems, American politicians simply cannot understand this world anymore and their power-media brainwashing with disinformation campaigns stuporing the public equally to irrationality. There are,[Read More…]

The India-U.S-China-Russia Quadrilateral Challenge

India PM took part on Friday afternoon the White House Quad meeting. His relaxed face with smile and Biden’s hearty open smile in a WH photo can speak volumes. Or? The focussed Quad priorities  on the rule of law, navigation and overflight freedom, peaceful resolution of disputes, democratic values and territorial integrity of states and support for smaller states of[Read More…]

Biden’s confusion: American foreign policy sliding back to Cold War framework

Indications are not lacking in American foreign policy (FP) that the man who took Oval Office in January on an anti-pandemic agenda is bereft of fresh innovative ideas to create world peace and regain American economic strength to lead the world. Where is Biden’s world leadership heading for, if it only withers in engendering wars, confronting Russia and China wherever[Read More…]

America’s Afghan Debacle & West’s Collective Bungle

America’s Afghan Debacle & West’s Collective Bungle

Taliban’s return to Kabul this week in lightning speed dislodging world’s No.1 self-styled sole Superpower Uncle Sam, is outstanding as much as astounding, considering Taleban’s de facto rag-tag force with primitive weapons and nil airpower. They outsmarted the U.S. in almost every department of high-altitude mountain guerrilla war. Quite significant too, that a U. S. push-out was accomplished even before[Read More…]

 Addendum to ICAN Report on World Nuclear Arms’ Spending

Only a day ago CounterCurrents.Org brought in a very informative article on world nuke spending to a tune of almost 73$ billion. While the entire humanity is facing a far worse survival crisis currently, one has to seriously ask how obscene such one spending is and for whose benefit. It is simply put, a bizarre veritable shame on civilised humanity,[Read More…]

The European Strategic Dilemma – Nato-in or Nato-out

The European Strategic Dilemma – Nato-in or Nato-out

  A most vital issue far exceeding Brexit in importance – the rumbustious bear NATO, has surfaced. It is world’s most unwanted powder keg. No enlightened EU intellectual, if genuinely honest, would want to dispute its irrelevance. The last best indication was when French President Macron’ in Paris in the face of Pres. Trump, pleaded for a European Army without[Read More…]
