President Zine Ben Ali of Tunisia, who next? A tree that refuses to dance will be made to do so by the wind

The fall of President Zine Ben Ali in Tunisia has inspired the whole Arab world in need of democracy and freedom. The Arab governments known for governing with iron hands are worried about the spread of movements for change from Tunisia, Algeria, or Yemen.

US and Russia Trading Spies: Before you begin to trade in blame, look in the mirror.

The news about Russia and the US swapping spies is like a pure James Bond movie. It also shows the hypocritical attitude of the US media, pretending that the US is the victim of espionage. A Russian researcher convicted of spying for the U.S. may be exchanged for one or more recent Russian spies arrested […]

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s rhetoric: A good orator makes us see with our ears.

When Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks, the West goes crazy. Tension is mounting between Iran and the United States and its allies about the nuclear matter. President Ahmadinejad understands that his words are carefully analyzed by his enemies. Clearly there is a sense of fear over the idea of a nuclear Iran. Iran’s neighbors know […]

Tea party movement: Every head has its own kind of headache.

A political insurgency is happening in America via the Tea Party movement. It is unclear what are their aspirations. For sure, they appear to be a group of angry people who still don’t accept the change in America. There are no clear leaders of the movement. The movement is like a car running without a […]

The Army is a school for killers.

John Muhammad (the D.C. sniper) and Timothy McVeigh (convicted of bombing the Alfred P. Murray Building in Oklahoma, killing 168 people) are connected in one way. They belonged to the military. Despite what they have done, definitely on some level, they are victims of wars. Many of the soldiers who return from war are mentally […]

More desperate than a drowning person.

Not having been born in America, I always wonder how the American people have given so much power to the insurance companies to the point even doctors are hostages of them. Money has succeeded for years in buying the political consciences to not make changes in the direction of helping their people. What type of […]

Your secret is your blood — when you shed it you die.

While the public is waiting for the president’s decision about adding more troops in Afghanistan, military strategy is discussed openly on the news. Generals are invited to discuss their “strategy” about this difficult war. The enemies of America on the ground know it and are getting smarter. Are Americans so naive? A military strategy should […]

Death was afraid of him because he had the heart of a lion.

Alas, Senator Ted Kennedy is dead. The rain of praise and criticism has not stopped since the news of his death. He was admired for his courage to fight for justice. What a remarkable man! He endured many troubled and tragic times. He saw all his brothers and sisters pass on — some in tragic […]
