Superpowers don’t support asylum for Assange: A hyena cannot smell its own stench

Superpowers don’t support asylum for Assange: A hyena cannot smell its own stench

Ecuador giving political asylum to Julian Assange (WikiLeaks) is the right thing to do. The irony in this affair is that the three main countries that violated international laws have been exposed in their lies (France, UK, and the US). The UK for instance refused to extradite Pinochet. Now, the UK is threatening to invade […]

Happy New Year: Like the chameleon, one eye on the future, one eye on the past

2010 is history now. It was a tough year for the world economy, and a tough year for world peace as well. North Korea and Iran are still dragging their feet to the negotiation table over their nuclear programs. The Israeli and Palestinian negotiations are failing. Julian Assange, the founder and CEO of Wikileaks and seen […]

Is Assange safe? Do not speak of rhinoceros if there is no tree nearby

After been arrested over rape allegations in Sweden, Julian Assange (of WikiLeaks fame) has regained his freedom after posting a bond to the British authorities. To me, Julian Assange is a living hero for his WikiLeaks work. His actions there are courageous. I’m concerned his life is in danger. The US government especially will do everything to arrest or […]

Prevent Iran from making a nuclear weapon: When the head of a snake is cut off, the rest of his body is an ordinary rope

The whistleblower site Wikileaks has certainly succeeded in getting world attention. It also helps us to know what world leaders think in the shadows and the way they play a double game between nations on important international matters. So far, the countries of the Arab Gulf are certainly the ones being shamed in their stand against […]

Assange accused of rape, will be remembered for Wikileaks: It is possible to kill a man, but it is impossible to kill his name

Julian Assange, the spokesman, editor-in chief, and founder of Wikileaks, is accused of the rape of two women in Sweden. Is it karma, retaliation for the last Wikileaks release, or a pure coincidence and it’s true? Mr. Assange has denied these allegations. His own mother, Ms. Christine Assange, believes that it is a set up. For sure, Assange, dead […]

Bradley Manning and Wikileaks, heroes or criminals? He who lives in the attic knows where the roof leaks

The war of words between Wikileaks and the US administration is certainly one of the most interesting wars to watch. Can we trust the news that we watch or listen to every day? Why should we trust the US government’s claims that the release of top secret information will put its troops and informants in danger? […]

Don’t hang Tariq Aziz: The best bed that a man can sleep on is peace

Tariq Aziz, the charming former Iraqi foreign minister under Saddam Hussein, was sentenced to hanging for his role in killings under Saddam’s brutal regime. Mr. Aziz is 74 years old and the only Christian in Saddam Hussein’s regime. While this man was sentenced by association, nothing proves that he’s innocent. He certainly agreed with Saddam in wrong doing. […]
