Contagious Paranoia

Five years ago I wrote an article on mass paranoia. At the time I argued that U.S. and Israeli paranoia threaten to lead the entire world to oblivion.

The Emperor Has No Clothes

That's not a reference to a brute for a husband or a bitch for a bride. It's a question motivated by the behaviour of the mindless louts who enjoy holding sacrificial lambs as hostages and killing those who complain.

To Bomb Or Not To Bomb

Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defence Minister Barak have been working hard to find sympathy for their craving to bomb Iran.

Congress: The Many-Headed Hydra

In ancient Greek mythology, the Hydra had the body of a serpent and from five to nine heads. If a head was severed, another would grow in its place.

An American Spring?

The coming elections in America have become a contest between candidates who both try to be the leading panderer to Israel. Watching grown men who aspire to lead America grovel and mollycoddle before Israeli puppet-masters is disturbing.

Double Standards of Mass Murder

A Virginia college, a Colorado high school, a Texas military base, an Arizona strip mall, a Colorado movie theatre—all have become part of a recurring event in America: mass murder.

Balles: Fighting the Vampire Within

Early warriors massed on bloody battlefields with everything from sticks and screams to swords, bows and arrows, muskets and cannons. That scene remained both disgusting and ridiculous.

Theft of a Nation

A recent story from a small American town in Pennsylvania reported a bank robbery by a 35-year-old who allegedly held up a Citizens Bank branch.

Transparency or Transparent Lies

Do you remember when President Obama called for an unprecedented level of openness in Government?

Conspiracies: Fact or Fiction?

If enough isolated individuals pursue the same goal, the effect is indistinguishable from a conspiracy.

Blind to Injustice

Much of the public seems blind to the truth of major events and issues that have long needed to be addressed openly.

Dystopia Revisited

Many people have been shocked by the distortion, propaganda and downright lies appearing in the Western media over events in the Middle East.

Fear-Fuelling Conspiracies – Part II

How long does it take to be discouraged by the seemingly impossible? One year? Five? Ten (Viet Nam)...Iraq...Afghanistan)? Try 60 (Palestine)!

Fear-Fuelling Conspiracies

I don't believe in conspiracy theories. However I do believe in conspiracies.

Don’t Call it Anti-Semitic. Call it Blowback!

Call it revenge. Call it retribution. Describe it as “chickens coming home to roost.” Don’t call it terrorism. Call it Blowback - the unintended consequences of our foreign policy.

Who Is the Real Enemy?

A story appeared in Israel’s Haaretz newspaper last month about what happened after nine Palestinian children and one adult were killed in a school bus accident north of Jerusalem.

A Story That Needs Retelling

I have a story to tell. This story has been told before. It can be found in several places on and off the internet, but not enough people have read it. If they have, it hasn't sunk in.

Information Overload

Six months ago, I wrote about Alvin Toffler's book Future Shock, which looks at a world with "too much change in too short a period of time".

A Disgrace to the USA

“Hey, hey. Ho, ho. Guantanamo has got to go!” chanted protestors marking the tenth anniversary of the American detention camp.

America on Israel’s Altar

The label has been attached to Paul primarily because he differs from the other Republican presidential candidates on foreign policy. Said The Globe after the presidential debate In Des Moines, Iowa on December 10th:

A Must-Do Menu

I'm writing this for people who will never read it without prompting: members of working families who relax by watching TV after a long work day and after they put the children to bed.

Twisters Non-stop

Another type of twister, a tornado, says Wikipedia is a violent, dangerous, rotating column of air that is in contact with both the surface of the earth and a cumulonimbus cloud.

Compromise and Dissent

Faced with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s absolutism, US President Barack Obama’s natural tendency to compromise is untenable and renders him weak and ineffectual.
