Democracy In Jeopardy
If this is the democracy you have been lecturing us about for the last half century, thank you America, we don't need it and we don't want it. There is enough evidence, beyond doubts, of its malfunction., regardless if Trump succeeds or not, the damage is already done.
Iran's Connection With God
As long as Iran is ruled by religion and Priests, the Middle East will never regain stability, and it is a shame that the civilised world allow some 80 million Iranians who are looking for the Good life to live in the Dark Ages where religion rules.

Iran & ISIS : The Only Theocracies In The World
Iran since it was taken over by the Ayatollahs in 1979 has become a theocracy state where the religious figures, not political ones rule the country.

Counting Up, Counting Down
What really matters for me is that at age 60 one has consumed 70-75% of his life. I call this age, the stop-counting-up and start-counting-down age. This never means giving up on life. Not at all. I will enjoy it more. The counting down means something else.

School of Dictatorship
New and effective methods to preserve dictatorship where played out by the Egyptian regime. Such brilliant tactics should form the curriculum for Dictatorship 101.
No light and No End To This Tunnel
It is frightening sometimes when one think where this world is heading and how our children and grand children will live, fifty or hundred years to come. The five biggest worries are environmental damage, unemployment, corrupt governments, cross-cultural hate and political instability.
