SHARE Monday, March 15, 2021 West's Cynical Concern for Myanmar
The three Western powers on the United Nations Security Council have been highlighting concern for human rights violations in Myanmar. But their "concern" seems to have cynical motivation to make problems for China.

SHARE Saturday, December 26, 2020 Navalny Case Is Naked Admission of Spooks and Media Collaboration
The latest twist in the Navalny saga claims that the blogger-activist -- whom Russia accuses of being a CIA asset -- was somehow poisoned with highly toxic Novichok laced in his underpants. The story does not pass the whiff test. In fact, it reeks like, well, a pair of old underpants.

Many of these so-called jihadists came from European states and there is evidence that the state intelligence agencies permitted these radicals to travel clandestinely to Syria in order to do the dirty work of regime change against the Syrian government.
