Don't tell any of this to Donald Trump!

No, seriously... if he heards of it, the next agreement he will tear up will be the North Atlantic Treaty! The European Council on Foreign Relations, an EU think tank, has published on September 10th a survey among populations of 14 EU countries regarding their expectations for EU foreign policy . A...

Re: Europe and Russia

Macron Putin COLLUSION !!! Indeed, and we do need to open an enquiry into how Putin helped Macron's election, and what kompromat he may have on him to force his collaboration. Did Macron ever call prostitutes to his hotel room in Moscow? Was any urination involved? So many thrilling possibilities :...

The Simulation... Assumption

https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/we-spoke-to-an-mit-computer-scientists-about-the-simulation-hypothesis/ Are we "A.I. programs running on the basement servers of some advanced future civilization?" Well, that would explain a lot ... I should remark that the above speculation, borne of a 2003...

"As we say in Persian"

"As we say in Persian" Or what is the position of Iran about the arm wrestle the US have imposed on them. In Moscow on Wednesday, Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Sajjadpour told reporters there can’t be dialog with the U.S. while “unjust” sanctions remain. “ As we say in Persian, it was not my aunt w...

It's only a matter of time until we are free of the empire. Let's hope the warmongers in Washington will not blow up the world before that happens.
Only a matter of time until we are free of THAT empire. Yes.

Then, there will be other(s).

Have no illusion. The nature of man has not changed.

Re: Australia leads "secret" trade negotiations that will sideline the US

I am not a pacifist. I will fight to defend myself, my family, my community, my country. But I do not accept any war of aggression. And that's why I have such a critical position in respect of the US. I think you have made your position clear, Sertorio. We are all aware of it :) In 1914 everybody w...

Re: Jacka's Mob, or who was Batman's boss

Now tell me Alexis: what does this nostalgia-flashback to WW1 have to do with Australia negotiating a new multilateral Asia-Pacific trade pact?

Re: Jacka's Mob, or who was Batman's boss

I only recognize two types of war hero: the one who is willing to die in the defense of his people, and the one who is willing to die to protect innocent civilians from the violence of war. There weren't many of those in WW I, or in any of the subsequent wars... Ok, Sertorio, then just for you & fr...

Jacka's Mob, or who was Batman's boss

Here is a little & nice video to commemorate Albert Jacka, who I understand all Australians know, but maybe not so many people outside Australia. At least, I didn't know him. And I'm glad I now know his story. :) In a nutshell, Albert Jacka was an Australian superhero who fought during WWI, sort of ...
