Can Americans think about gun control after the Sandy Hook shootings? If you get annoyed by what you see, you blame your eyes

The school killings in Connecticut are a pure tragedy.  Guns and mental illness are not the cause, though.  Blaming the shooter or mental illness instead of addressing the problem of guns in America doesn’t make any sense. Fifty years from now, the debate about gun control in this country will still be alive. Blacks and […]

US criticizes China for arrest of Ai Weiwei: A camel cannot see the crookedness of its neck

The unrest in the Arab world is making China paranoid. Lately, China is cracking down on its dissidents including the recent arrest of Ai Weiwei, a famous and respected artist known for his criticism of the Chinese government.   As usual, the US government was one of the first to criticize China. The Chinese government […]

Emperor Akihito expresses worries: A chief in the village never sees the devil

 In a rare TV appearance, Akihito, the emperor of Japan, has expressed his worries about the disaster in his country. His worries mean that the situation is certainly worse than we think. We are still very traumatized by Chernobyl, and it appears that this catastrophe is more serious. By nature, the Japanese are not fatalistic–but […]

West turns on their new friend Ghaddafi: Pretend you are dead and you will see who really loves you

France has recognized the rebel group in Libya. This move shows the eyes of French  imperialism in Africa. France is known for its addiction to oil and its involvement with dictators in oil-rich African countries such as Gabon, Republic of Congo, and Angola. And behind the French government is hidden the French oil mafia that often supports […]

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 […]

Opposing Health Care Reform: If you see evil and say nothing against it, you become its victim.

Health care reforms are close to becoming law in America. There is no hope of a bipartisan bill. What is the point of working together, if Democrats and Republicans suspect each other of playing politics? Americans, historically, are paranoid of any change to their health care system, even though it is certainly one of the […]

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 […]

The family is like the forest: if you are outside, it is dense; if you are inside, you see that each tree has its own position.

The family is like the forest: if you are outside, it is dense; if you are inside, you see that each tree has its own position.

Liberal Democrats failed Tuesday to inject a government-run insurance option into the proposed health care legislation. It is disappointing for those who gave their faith to the Democrats and President Obama to change things in Washington. If Democrats fail to deliver affordable health care to each American, they risk losing everything in the next elections. […]

The chief of village does not see the devil.

The erosion of civility in American politics is depressing. The health care reforms have given an excuse for extremists to show their “disapproval” of being governed by a president of color. When former President Jimmy Carter pointed out the racist character of the protesters in Washington D.C. last week, as usual, many people have reacted, […]

Blind eyes see better than blind hearts.

President Obama became the first US president to visit the Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany. He reiterated once again his message to those who denied the suffering of the Jewish people. Seeing the Nazi ovens of the Buchenwald concentration camp in person dwarfs learning about it from a history class or from a book. You […]
