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

Sarkozy calls Netanyahu a liar: Quarrels end, but words once spoken never die

Have you heard about President Sarkozy of France telling President Obama that Benjamin Netanyahu was a liar? The French president was unaware that the microphone had been switched on. Behind the image of unity and smiles in front of cameras, world leaders disagree on many issues. It would be honorable for Nicolas Sarkozy to say it […]

America is not governable with only two political parties as the debt ceiling debate has shown: The mother of twins is forced to sleep on her back

Americans whine about their politicians, but they have to remember that the politicians are elected by the people, not by God. The debt ceiling debate has shown the weakness of American democracy, the same model that ex-president Bush wanted to export to the world. America is not governable with only two political parties. A budget […]

Liberals have expected more than Obama can give: The smaller the lizard, the greater the hope of becoming a crocodile

If there is someone who has not been sleeping well the last two years, it is President Obama. The latest unemployment report for the month of June is not good. For sure, this is a nightmare for President Obama and the Democrats. If things do not improve by the next presidential election, President Obama will […]

The US needs Pakistan in the war on terror: Better a bad wife than an empty house

The US needs Pakistan in the war on terror: Better a bad wife than an empty house

Pakistan has bitten the hand that feeds it. Relations between the US and Pakistan will never be the same. The Pakistani government is still trying to figure out how to save face. The humiliation is a national embarassment. Between billions and the $25 million put on Osama’s head, it was worth more to protect the Al-Qaeda leader […]

Trump joins birthers in questioning Obama’s place of birth: He who talks incessantly, talks nonsense

Once again, Donald Trump has questioned the President’s birthplace. It is incomprehensible how closely politics and stupidity can mix together. Politics in America is no longer about ideas and vision about the future; rather, it’s more like a soap opera. Trump’s need to be in the news makes him believe that he can become the President of […]

West involves itself with the Lybian conflict: Eating a lot does not satisfy greediness

The West’s addiction to foreign oil is certainly what motivates a coalition of  Westerners lead by the French to engage in what would become an inevitable  confrontation with Moammar Gaddafi. The U.N. resolution confirmed once again the international conspiracy against the weak. At least during the time of cold war, the world was more peaceful because the super powers neutralized each other. I […]

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 […]
