Are We There Yet?

Putin; Moscow will respond to NATO

Putin; Moscow will respond to NATO

The Western empire had been prodding Russia with a skewer since Putin defused the attempted Syrian  invasion by USA. The Russian rumbled with annoyance after each prick. Subsequently Ukraine became the ultimate kicking ball for the Western powers and Russia. Accusations flung back and forth, culminating with economic sanctions against Russia. Once again, the bear took the bullet, groaning but not yet retaliating. Things might be about to change very soon… Read the rest of this entry »

War Drums Humming

imagesThe Dark Side force is looming strong. The urge for war grows with intensity each day. Not just wars that decimate people and property. But wars that destroy through the unseen powers of money. Greece is reeling under the enormity of debt that it could not repay. Ironically, the lenders are deep in debt too. Soon, when money stops flowing, so will food supplies. Then civil unrest follows and soon people die, but with more dignity compared with gruesome blood flowing from dismembered bodies. Still, it is the same. It is WAR. Read the rest of this entry »

Another War Erupts

yemenThe conflagration in the Middle East continues like a musical chair. The chair of destruction moved from Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Syria and now into Yemen. Located at the heel of the Arabian boot, Yemen commands a strategic chokepoint for access into the Red Sea, thus the Suez Canal. Yemen has a long history of tribal conflicts. Yemen became a republic and President Ali Abdullah Saleh was the first elected President in reunified Yemen in 1999. The country is plagued by corruption, scoring 164 out of 182 countries surveyed in the 2009 international corruption Perception Index by Transparency International. Read the rest of this entry »

Iranian Conundrum

indexWhat would you do when someone threatens to destroy you? It would be inconceivable to expect you to smile to the threats and counter propose providing arms concession to him so as to appease him. Sounds illogical but that is exactly what we are witnessing in the US-Iran “deal” that is in the making. “Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for ‘Death to America’ on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity” for a nuclear deal and a better future, and as US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.”Business Insider.

Want War? Start One

indexEver since Russia torpedoed US’s plans to invade Syria in 2013, relations between US and Russia took a horrific turn. War-mongering shifted from the Middle East to Russia. Russia was being demonised incessantly by US. NATO cronies have no choice but to follow the drumbeat of Obama. Then Ukraine became the next pawn of Western hegemony. Victoria Jane Nuland, the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs was caught using profanity as US blatantly instigated the Ukrainian uprising against an elected government.

Time for Change

imagesChange – everyone in this world wants change. What is happening? If we are living in modern-day renaissance, why is this tsunami of people wanting change. Six years ago, Obama was campaigning the presidency solely on one big word “CHANGE”. For USA, change it got. Based on track records, the change was not for the better. Pre-election, Obama wants to reign in the greed of banksters on Wall Street. Post-election, he changed. His policies reflect a president who is now in the pockets of the banksters.  Read the rest of this entry »

Obama’s Selfie Take

obama-buzzfeed-620x362jpg-64c55eaf8f41631aEveryone has the right to have light moments, let the hair down so to speak. Presidents and kings are no more different from the common man on the streets. There are times to be serious. And there are times to relax and enjoy the simple things in life, like smelling the flowers and enjoying the company of family and friends. The tendency is to set different standards for different groups of people in the human-created caste system. There are behavioral forms and norms that are not acceptable to certain groups, but are acceptable when applied to another group. What would your reaction be watching Obama’s latest Obamacare promotion selfie (read “Selfie – The Selfish Me)? Read the rest of this entry »

The Moscow Troika

imagesThe supernova heat is exploding in Europe. Two relatively small economies provided tinder for a potential cosmic explosion to be unleashed in Europe. The Greeks are holding the matches ready to ignite a financial bomb capable of blowing EU apart. Ukraine holds the fuse for military conflict that will drag the superpowers into a deadly World War 3. Leaders in Europe must be shaking in their pants wondering which fuse will ignite first. Planes carrying powerful heads of states are crisscrossing Europe in a flurry of activities hoping to find solutions for the flagging economies and to avert a  military conflict from blowing into a full conflagration.

Hairs and Attire

indexIf you are a typical man and woman on the streets, who cares about your hairstyles and attire you wear. But if you belong to another class that may be quite different. Celebrities and royalties are often scrutinised for their outlandish outfits, eating habits, and every tiny details of their lives. That’s what mass media and tabloids thrive on. Without these petty news, they got nothing more to say nor contribute to society.

Obama’s visit to Saudi with Michelle got all the headlines exploding with excitement. They were all about her dressing and that she shook hands with the Saudi royalty. She wore pants. She had no headgear on. She shook hands with the king. Great news indeed. Someone would have commented that this first lady should not be wearing pants in a society that frowns on women dressing like man. Read the rest of this entry »
