US politics remains divided: A razor may be sharper than an ax, but it cannot cut wood

Bye-bye 2014, welcome 2015!  US politics has been very consistently divided, Democrats vs. Republicans. As a result, nothing is accomplished. What will I remember about American politics in 2014? The US Democrats lost their majority in the US Senate. Surprise? Not a big surprise, because traditionally a second term president’s party loses elections due to […]

Putin supports Syria’s Assad: He who eats alone chokes alone

The Syrian civil war was one of the topics at the G8 summit in Northern Ireland. President Putin of Russia found himself isolated, supporting Bashar al-Assad‘s regime. The Western countries usually speak with one voice and get behind regime change based on their self-interests.    The civil war in Syria can be seen by the […]

US keeps making same mistakes in foreign policy and wonders why people are hostile: A hyena cannot smell its own stench

The UN, Israel, and the United States are up against the wall. Mahmoud Abbas’ bid for Palestinian Statehood is a big move and a big test that exposes the biased attitude of the United States. If the UN was not a puppet of the West, Palestinians would have their own state already, living side by side with […]

US should speak against Israeli settlements in Palestine: A person who does not speak out against the wrong is a mute devil

US should speak against Israeli settlements in Palestine: A person who does not speak out against the wrong is a mute devil

If you want justice, you must work for peace. The US has vetoed the U.N. resolution declaring Israeli settlements illegal. It is disappointing. President Obama is basically following the steps of George W. Bush regarding policy in the Middle East. This unfortunate move sends the wrong message to the Arab world–especially the Palestinians–that the United States is […]

The West was never bothered before that Mubarak wasn’t a democrat: If a dog offers to help you across the river, don’t ask if he is suffering from mange

The West was never bothered before that Mubarak wasn’t a democrat: If a dog offers to help you across the river, don’t ask if he is suffering from mange

The way President Mubarak of Egypt has been dumped in the mud by his “friends” in the West is unbelievable. Only the state of Israel has been consistent in their support and show of gratitude to a man who, for thirty years, has been an important ally and prevented the destruction of Israel by Muslim extremists. In France, […]

Mubarak doesn’t need outside pressure: Only the owner can free his home from mice

It is difficult not to talk about Egypt again. President Mubarak reminds us of the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. The call for more freedom and democracy in the Arab world by the West shows again that they do not understand the Muslim world. They are different than Westerners. Saddam Hussein reigned ruthlessly and spread fear among his countrymen. Some days […]

To all dictators who think they are protected under the US umbrella: A donkey always says thank you with a kick

The US government is monitoring the protests in Egypt. President Mubarak, seen as a friend of the US and its allies, is in danger of being overthrown. The 82 year old dictator is resisting the calls for his resignation.Instead he dissolved his government to appoint his close ally as vice-president to appease his people. He certainly […]

Obama positions himself as centrist: A chief of the village never sees the devil

In his State of the Union address, President Obama once again has sent a message of hope to the American people. The mood in the room was somber. The apparent unity of all political parties was clearly due to the latest tragedy in Tucson. The novelty this year was that the Republican party and the Tea Party have their […]

Devaluation of the dollar and the yuan a bad move: Every head has its own kind of headache

The climate at the G20 meeting in South Korea is one of division and finger pointing. It is seen as a war of currencies. China has been accused by the US and Europe as a manipulator of its currency, boosting its exports. Pressure on Beijing did not work. Finally, last week, the Feds decided to pump $600 […]

Michael Steele in Hot Water Again: The butterfly that brushes against thorns will tear its wings.

Elected to be the “Barack Obama” of the GOP, Michael Steele must live under a rock. He does not understand that The GOP is like a cult. As members of the cult, they think the same way, walk the same way, and believe in the same things. Steele’s views about the Afghan war — “Obama’s war” — were […]
