Glasnost 1988: Historic Moment for Iran and Russia Iran played no part in the US-backed 'jihad' in Afghanistan in the 1980s that brought the collapse of the Soviet Union. Iranian leaders knew that nothing good would come from working in alliance with America.

Trump: A people's 'new world order' taking shape? Trump's final ad, a 2-minute masterpiece of populist rhetoric infuriated the ADL for hinting the obvious: the forces of international finance that have their own agenda for the US, behind our backs, and whose agent is/was Hillary Clinton. He depicted a "global power structure" that is "bleeding America dry" with horrible trade deals that enrich elites and open the gates to mass immigration.

White Tears from Israel In a Brandeis survey of Jewish students: One-quarter of undergraduate respondents describe hostility toward Israel on campus by their peers as a "fairly" or "very" big problem and nearly 15% perceive this same level of hostility toward Jews. The study reaches the no-brainer conclusion: Connection to Israel is the strongest predictor of perceiving a hostile environment toward Israel and Jews on campus.

Mind control and Cyberwarfare: 'The Russians Are Coming!' The media campaign attacking Russia is in high gear these days. Russia is accused of cyberwarfare, leaking poor Hillary's emails, and now, of a slick disinformation campaign to undermine poor NATO, our bastion of peace. But is it possible the Russians are actually the 'good guys' here?

Iran "28 Mordad" and the Great Game 2.0 The 1953 coup in Iran, known as "28 Mordad", was a key move in what I refer to as the "Great Game 2": the imperialist powers united in a Cold War against socialism and third world liberation, which went into high gear following World War Two.

Interview: Trump - 'the wise fool' As long as there is empire, there will be insurgencies and terrorist acts--including in the West. That was Donald Trump's point when he told Americans Obama and Clinton "founded ISIS." Sadly, he was dismissed as a buffoon. But Trump is a classic example of the "wise fool".

Renouncing Jewishness: Shlomo Sand and Gilad Atzmon Israel as a Jewish state is an anachronism, an embarrassment in the postmodern age. A reminder of the horrors of Nazism, but not as the Zionist crafters of the "holocaust industry", or "holocaust religion", would have it.

War and Peace Part II: Azerbaijan and Palestine Both Armenia and Israel insist history bequeathed them the lands they seized, and their tragic 'holocausts' justify their violation of international law to ensure their safety. Both countries have lived this occupier lifestyle on a war footing ever since, and yet prosper even as their nemeses wallow in poverty and suffering. How do they do it?

Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot: Afghanistan is FUBAR "The Taleban Shuffle", the name of the book the film is based on, was discarded, along with any critical content, for "Whisky, Tango Foxtrot", a military euphemism for 'what the f*ck'. Frighteningly apt for the "forgotten war". Another slang term that fits is FUBAR (fucked up beyond all recognition/ repair), which is accurate not only for the film, but, as I realized, squirming through the film, for the whole US effort in Afg

Killer Drugs: Sleep through your Waking Life Ricci's latest novel, Sleep, inspired by his own sleep disorder, is really more a fun text book on the latest brain research and the blind use of powerful drugs to alter--and possibly restructure (who knows?)--the brain. It's like a 'don't smoke' ad that's actually informative and hilarious, with a classic 'death of a salesman' plot moving it along.

Why did US seize Iran's $2 Billion? A US decree was issued to seize $2 billion in assets belonging to the Central Bank of Iran (CBI), holding Iran financially responsible for the 1983 bombing that killed 241 Marines at their barracks in the Lebanese capital, Beirut. It clearly is part of a tactic of goading Iran, pushing it in an attempt to bring Iran to heel. Either that or to undermine the deal.

Turkey vs ISIS: Where Is the New Caliphate Now? One of the latest suspected Islamic State (ISIS) attacks was in the heart of Istanbul against foreign tourists. If true, ISIS broke its devil's pact with the Turkish government as a sort-of ally, undermining Erdogan's rationale to let the Islamic State carry out attacks as long as they target Kurds. Pacts with the devil usually go wrong and this appears to be one that did.

Canada's Syrian refugees: Outing our immigrants? Canada decided to limit Syrians to families, single women and children. This sounds like a human rights violation: discrimination against single men, on the pretext that they could be terrorists. Not fair, but understandable, given the Paris bombings and the need to be seen to act carefully. There are lots of women and children and married men still alive there to fill the quota.
