With Bloomberg Entering Race, U.S. Oligarchy Takes Stage
February 20, 2020

With media tycoon Mike Bloomberg entering the presidential race, U.S. “democracy” can be seen for what it is: it’s all about big money duking it out. Political parties are now manifestly irrelevant.

While the current interference in Latin America may be constructed as a strategy to isolate Cuba further, imperialism is missing the point – revolutions are made by the people and the U.S. has triggered all the conditions for change in the region.

Dresden Terror Bombing, Like Hiroshima, a Maniacal Warning to Moscow
February 17, 2020

There is good reason to believe that the rationale for the obliteration of Dresden was for one rather sinister reason. It wasn’t so much an act of terror aimed at Nazi Germany, but rather a show of maniacal power to the Soviet Union.

Don’t miss

Iran – wisely – has eschewed direct, state-to-state military conflict, for a more subtle, and pernicious war on the US presence in the Middle East – a war, which if successful, will re-cast the region.
De-escalation requires that both parties save face, and can come away with tangible minor victories and agree that the real underlying dispute is resolved in the future.
Trump has evidently been convinced by someone that the U.S. can do without the Middle East, that it can do without allies in the region, and that nobody would ever dare to sell oil in any other currency than the U.S. dollar.
The strategic balance seemed more or less sustainable until its upending with the assassination of Qasem Soleimani and Al-Muhandis, ordered by Trump.
Maybe we’ll be pleasantly surprised and Washington and Brussels will demand that their Montenegrin flunkies back off. Don’t bet on it though. There’s still a lot more of the Orthodox Church left to disrupt.
Meanwhile the West is facing demons of its own making as victims of ‘sexual reassignment surgery’ want to change back to their original selves.
The national security state should not be roaming the world looking for trouble and should instead only respond to actual threats.
While Trump hides that the US simply can’t afford its empire, Macron hides that Europe has pushed for its own army even before Trump assumed office.
With Putin signing major deals with Saudi Arabia and the UAE, China welcoming Iraq into the Belt and Road family and Turkey all but leaving NATO, what are a bunch of feckless and politically spent neocons going to do?
The world is now witnessing one of the greatest diplomatic masterpieces bringing closer the end of the seven-year-long Syrian conflict.
