The US

The end of the “wars on the cheap” for the United States

This analysis was written for the Unz Review. With the Neocon coup against Trump now completed (at least in its main objective, that is the neutralization of Trump, the subsidiary objective, impeaching Trump and removing him from office remains something for the future) the world has to deal, yet again, with a very dangerous situation: the AngloZionist Empire is on a rapid decline, but the Neocons are back in power

Rather than develop strategies based on ‘hybrid’ challenges (an elusive and catch-all term), I believe decision-makers should stay away from

Barak Obama insults the US military (but will anybody notice?)

According to the BBC, Barak Obama met the soldiers which killed OBL and praised their mission as “one of the greatest military operations in our nation’s history”.   Now, readers of this blog will no doubt have noticed that I am not exactly a big admirer of the US military.  And yet, there is no denying the US military did fight – and win – some major and very difficult battles
