The President and I (a *must watch* interview of President Ahmadinejad)

By: Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich I was pleasantly surprised when my request for an interview with Mr. Ahmadinejad, Iran’s president was accepted. President Ahmadinejad has never shied away from being heard, but these interviews had been exclusive to prominent mainstream media personalities such as Larry King and Charlie Rose. However, it was the mainstream media’s projection of Mr. Ahmadinejad that always remained questionable. On September 21, 2010, on the occasion of President

7 Questions for Carlo Moiana about the current situation in Latin America

Today its my very real pleasure to publish my interview with Carlo who, since our “meeting” in August 08, became a regular commentator on this blog. Carlo is extremely well-informed about the situation in Latin America (his other specialty is Russia) and I asked him to agree to a Q&A about the current developments on this continent. It is hard to overstate the importance of Latin America in the worldwide

10 Questions for David Rovics

It is truly a huge pleasure for me to publish this Q&A with David Rovics, a phenomenal artist whose music I have only recently discovered, and about whom I wrote a piece entitled “David Rovics – the beautiful voice of the American Resistance“. Three months have passed since I wrote this piece. I discovered more of David’s songs and I came to the conclusion that he is probably the most

Gilad Atzmon: “Ethics and morality are far more crucial than some UN decision”

It is a huge pleasure for me to share with you the transcript of a Q&A by email which I did recently with Gilad Atzmon.

Having since read as much of his writings as

The Saker interviews Taimur – a Muslim student living in Indian controlled Kashmir

Little did I know that when I would open my own IRC channel it would yield such amazing possibilities as interviewing somebody at length from inside a war zone!

How a medieval concept of ethnicity makes NATO commit yet another a dangerous blunder

Acting as one – which of course they are – President Bush and the US House of Representatives announced yesterday that they both favor the entry of the Ukraine and Georgia into NATO. That Dubya would take such an idiotic position is of no surprise of course, but that the House would pass such a resolution unanimously is quite shocking: not a single Representative had the brains to understand what
