U.S. Geopolitics: Afghanistan and the Containment of China

China’s fear is replicating the fall of the Soviet Union. When its borderlands, Central Asia and Transcaucasus, were lost, the Russian core shattered into three states: Byelorussia, Ukraine, and Russia. Should China loses its borderlands, Tibet and Xinjiang, the Chinese core may similarly shatter.

Trump sells out future of global food security for Morocco-Israel normalization deal


Israel, Morocco agree to normalise relations in US-brokered deal

As part of the agreement, US President Donald Trump agreed to recognise Morocco’s sovereignty over the Western Sahara, where there has been a decades-old territorial dispute with Morocco pitted against the Algeria-backed Polisario Front, a breakaway movement that seeks to establish an independent state in the territory.


The a priori bias of the Western media and the education system must be a depressing and debilitating experience. Imagine every facet of information being default-set to ‘dehumanise’ you from the perspective of your body’s skin-colour, height, hair-colour and face-shape, etc, with your culture and history deemed as being ‘evil’ and the product of ‘subhuman’ endeavour.




A new study has concluded that in September, 2019, the new coronavirus (Covid19) spread not from China – but rather from Italy (whereas the first recognised cases in China were identified in December, 2019). The (racist) Observer newspaper in the UK has suggested that this scientific research is a product of China attempting to ‘re-write history’ – but this is a straightforward and deliberate fabrication of the most ignorant type – as the data under discussion originates from within the West! (In this regard, Reuters (Deutsche Welle Chinese website) quoted a recent study from Italy as saying that the new coronavirus appeared in Italy earlier than first thought. The subjects in question were originally discovered through a lung cancer screening campaign. Since the discovering of this new Covid19 epidemic – there has been more questions about its origin (and infection process) identified as emerging between September 2019 to February 2020. As a result of these tests, antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus were found in the (Italian) blood samples provided by the respondents from September 2019.

$427 billion lost each year to tax dodging by corporations and the rich: landmark study

$427 billion lost each year to tax dodging by corporations and the rich: landmark study

To ensure countries around the world don’t continue to lose hundreds of billions of dollars each year which could go to strengthening their public health, infrastructure, and education systems, the Tax Justice Network said, governments must promptly take three far-reaching actions:

– Introduce an excess profit tax on multinational corporations making excess profits during the pandemic, such as global digital companies, in order to cut through profit shifting abuses.

– Introduce a wealth tax to fund the Covid-19 response and address the long term inequalities the pandemic has exacerbated, with punitive rates for opaquely owned offshore assets and a commitment between governments to eliminate this opacity.

– Establish a UN tax convention to ensure a global and genuinely representative forum to set consistent, multilateral standards for corporate taxation, for the necessary tax cooperation between governments, and to deliver comprehensive, multilateral tax transparency.
