Israel Freaks Out as Gabriel Boric’s Elections Signals New Direction for Chile

We recognize it in the jargon of political correctness, the language and practice of the “cancel culture”.

Nord Stream 2 is a double-edged geopolitical tool

When Pavel Zavalny, the chairman of Russian parliamentary committee on energy, made the forecast last Friday that Nord Stream 2 pipeline could start shipping natural gas to Germany as early as next month, it was received with disbelief. But Zavalny was categorical, and was quoted by Reuters as saying, “I can say with a high degree of certainty that the first gas via Nord Stream 2 will go in January.”
