Natylie Baldwin: Review of Benjamin Abelow’s “How the West brought war to Ukraine”

Natylie Baldwin October 18th, 2022 I first came across Benjamin Abelow’s analysis of the Ukraine war as a lengthy article published on Medium in May.  I found the depth and thoroughness of his article impressive and complimented him on it.  When he told me that he’d expanded it into a short book, I was intrigued and offered to […]

Jan Oberg: Civilisation’s challenge – US imperial decline without global destruction

Jan Oberg June 6, 2022 A shorter version was printed as my column in China Daily on the same day here. Empires go up and then they go down. None lasts forever. Imperial falls can be very dangerous. The Soviet Union dissolved thirty years ago. The US Empire is next in turn. In contrast to […]

Truth is out: NATO wants to become even more superior and cripple and cancel Russia through Ukraine

Truth is out: NATO wants to become even more superior and cripple and cancel Russia through Ukraine

Step-by-step NATO’s conflict with Russia is becoming more clear – past, present and future. Ukraine was always unimportant to the West except as a pawn in its game.
