شيطنة تركيا                                         Demonizing Turkey

الوضع الاجتماعي والسياسي الداخلي في أي بلد دائمًا ما يكون معقدًا، وبالنسبة لأجنبي يعيش في هذا البلد فبصفة عامة لن يكون قدارًا إلا على الفهم السطحي فقط، حتى لو غمس نفسه في المجتمع، فمع قدر كبير من الدراسة، قد يكون قادرًا على تحقيق قاعدة جيدة من المعرفة، ولكن، بطبيعة الحال، لن يكون قادرًا هكذا ببساطة على فهم الأمور كما يفهمها شعب هذا البلد.

From Antiwar.com, by  Ivan Eland

As President Barack Obama’s visit to Vietnam and the lifting of the arms embargo to that country represents his “pivot to Asia,” his simultaneous killing of Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansour, the Taliban leader in Pakistan, and the U.S.-backed Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s announcement of an assault to free Fallujah in Iraq illustrate why the pivot has not been realized. 649 more words

World At WAR

Kingdom of pawns

(To be published in Arabic for Arrabi21)

Saudi Arabia is in the Neoliberal crosshairs.  I remember when the US invaded Iraq in 2003, I remarked that they will not stop until they fly the American flag on top of the Ka’abah.  550 more words
