President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines is outraged. He wants an end to the U.S. military presence in his country. He wants to curb all cooperation with the U.S. armed forces. He hits hard, talks big. And his people seem to be behind him, no matter what - his popularity rating is high and rising, now around 87%, which is something unimaginable anywhere else in Southeast Asia, or in the world.

I am not sure when and how it happened, or even what precisely took place, but suddenly, nothing feels the same, and nothing feels right in Malaysia.
Malaysia changed; became unrecognizable. And it happened unbelievably fast.

Now that your city has been in flames for more than six months, your families divided, and no end to the violence is in sight, I have decided to write this short essay, in the form of an open letter, to the young people of Hong Kong.

They say he had the chance to become the next Supreme Leader of the country.
He is loved by his people. He became the symbol of resistance against the West; the symbol of the strength and dignity of the nation which was attacked, colonized and starved by several Western capitals. And now, Iran's Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani is no more. And the U.S. Commander-in-Chief, Donald Trump, is proudly claiming responsibility
SHARE Sunday, January 5, 2020 Colombia - Where Life Has To Defeat Death
Neo-liberal Colombia has some of the greatest and most bizarre disparities I have witnessed anywhere on Earth.
Obviously, someone had enough of such contrasts. Or more precisely, few millions of Colombian people decided that the situation is, should we say, "indigestible".
And, so, on November 21, 2019, Colombia exploded

As a novelist, since my childhood, I was in love with the literature that used to be written in the United States. I am talking about North America about which people hardly know much, now.
The America of Huckleberry Finn, of Captain John Yossarian from "Catch 22", or Robert Jordan from "For Whom the Bell Tolls".
But it is gone. I come to its tombstones, and I mourn.
SHARE Monday, December 23, 2019 In The U.K. - Do Subjects Deserve Their Rulers?
My readers in the US and UK actually periodically have the opportunity to install socialism, but they keep missing that opportunity, again and again. Or, are they really missing it? Actually, for so many years they have voted in the most extreme forms of capitalism and imperialism, so one has to wonder whether the British voters perhaps truly deserve their rulers.
SHARE Tuesday, December 17, 2019 I Never Saw A World So Fragmented!
I work in all corners of the planet wherever "conflicts" get ignited by Washington, London or Paris. I see and describe not only horrors which are taking place all around me; horrors that are ruining human lives, destroying villages, cities and entire countries. I try to grasp on TV screens and newspapers and internet, but information becomes twisted and manipulated that people know close to nothing about their suffering.

Washington is horrified that China is taking a lead in building a much brighter future for humanity. It is because, if China succeeds, it could be the end of Western imperialism and neo-colonialism, leading to real freedom and independence for dozens of until now suffering nations.
Therefore, Washington has decided to act, in order to preserve the status quoand its dominance over the world.

In many countries, all over the world, people have been sharing their stories with me. I have seen barricades, photographed and filmed injured bodies, as well as tremendous revolutionary enthusiasm and excitement.
But on TV, everything appeared pretty groovy, very classy, and comforting. The blood looked like a well-mixed color, the barricades like a stage of the latest Broadway musical.

They pledged to do it, and they did - Bolivian feudal lords, mass media magnates and other treasonous "elites"- they overthrew the government, broke hope and interrupted an extremely successful socialist process in what was once one of the poorest countries in South America. Evo Morales, legitimate President of Bolivia, elected again and again by his people, is leaving his beloved country.
SHARE Saturday, November 9, 2019 Qatar - Education As A Weapon
Qatar has plenty of money, and it uses some of its funds for various 'educational programs', which are closely linked to the Western, particularly US and British but also Wahhabi propaganda apparatus. International experts hired from the West have been promoting such extreme concepts as the privatization of schools, and spreading pro-Western and pro-market doctrines throughout the region and beyond.

Almost all of the prominent U.S. neocons have been madly snapping at everything and everybody who opposes the Western right-wing dogmas, be they Chinese or Russian leaders, local opposition figures, or, lately, even the Pope. Individuals, like Steve Bannon, often greatly influence leaders like President Donald Trump.

At J. Nehru University, most students know about China and Russia only from the BBC, Reuters and other Western media outlets. Even those individuals who claim they belong to the left are not immune; influenced mainly by the British propaganda.

It is very popular these days to talk and write about the "trade war" between the United States and China. But is there really one raging? Or is it, what we are witnessing, simply a clash of political and ideological systems: one being extremely successful and optimistic, the other depressing, full of dark cynicism and nihilism?
