The drone attacks on some of Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities were carried out by the Houthi rebels of Yemen (according to their own admission). The mainly Shia Muslim Houthi rebels, are fighting the majority Sunni government troops headed by President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who is backed by the Saudi and United Arab Emirate ‘Coalition’, which includes the United States, and possibly Israel. The ‘Coalition’ has through their indiscriminate air strikes and bombings of the Houthi
It was purely by accident that we became aware of the ‘2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup’. The reason being that there was shamefully little promotion of the coming games before they started on June 7th, 2019. In fact, compared to the massive global hoopla that precedes the men’s FIFA World Cup, there was no coverage whatsoever on regular media or any special promotions by FIFA that would make the average person aware of the impending games. And that, as we said, was a real shame,
Of late, there is an arrogant rise of the 'Far-Right'; arrogant, because the attitudes and messages espoused by the many proponents of 'Right-Wing' Nationalism today are stated with the confidence of proven experience, while the World’s recent history and experience is in direct contradiction to it all. Currently, this Right-Wing movement’s most famous proponents are – Trump and Steve Bannon of the United States, Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson of the UK, Marie Le Pen of Franc
Global tensions and adverse developments are at an all time high. Yet, except for brief pullbacks the major stock markets, especially USA’s, seem to take all the global business and political setbacks in stride, and almost immediately return to their positive territory. This upward repeating action does not reflect the current global economic reality, but as in the recent past, it seems to extend the undefeatable attitude of the full-on ‘Quantitative Easing’ (QE) times when t
Modern day Russia is tiny, in every critical aspect of global power, to the one and only true ‘Super-Power’ in the World today – The United States of America – (except geographically, of course). Yet it seems to be in almost complete command of America’s administration through the abjectly servile Donald J. Trump, who cannot help but bow and scrape in front of the diminutive Vladimir Putin, as does his administration, and the enablers - the Republican Senators and Congressmen
We have all collectively made it to the 21st Century, but we still suffer from the oldest scourges of humanity, the hate and divisiveness caused by the differences in our ideologies, our race and our religious beliefs that threaten our very lives. On a global scale, as countries vie for dominance and power over each other, wars rage on, be they actual wars, or more lately, racial, religious, ideological, and even trade and commerce wars. But regardless of their nature, they f
Trump An Instrument of God – To Save the Jews? Well at least that’s what US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, thinks is possible because of his ‘faith’. On his current visit to Israel, Pompeo was reportedly asked by an interviewer of the Christian Broadcasting Network, if - "President Trump right now has been sort of raised for such a time as this, just like Queen Esther, to help save the Jewish people from an Iranian menace". Pompeo’s response was reported to be - "As a Chris
Infamously now, Paul Manafort got a huge break from Judge T. S. Ellis, the III, no-less, who sentenced Manafort to 47 months, for crimes which required a jail sentence somewhere between 19 to 24 years. The outrageously lenient sentence created a furor in America, as commentators, legal experts and most law-makers expressed shock and disbelief at the brevity of the sentence and the injustice of the Judge in flaunting legal precedents and minimum sentence requirements. Judge T.
