The US presidential reality show is over. And the winner is “The Donald”.
Against all official odds, Donald Trump was elected to become the 45th president of the “exceptional country”.
And despite getting fewer total votes than Crooked Hillary Clinton, he crushed her due to the way the most democratic electoral system in the world works.
And of course, it was Putin’s fault.
These world leaders make the top headline. They are strong, famous and they all have things in common. One of the things they all share is that they are probably the top world leaders who have humiliated Barack Obama either directly or indirectly with their words, policies and actions during the last 8 years. This way they’ve all contributed to the obvious trend of putting an end on the US dominance in the world.
Americans are getting closer to the big election day when they will have to pick according to many of them “the lesser of the 2 evils”. Hitlery Clinton vs Donald Duck… Ooops, Hillary or Trump. (Btw, there are 2 other candidates but who cares about them, right?). A big choice!
After more than a year of civil war and bloodshed in South-Eastern Ukraine, the government in Kiev has to make a choice on what to do in the near future. The country is in a state of bankruptcy, the streets of Kiev are full of so called “patriotic” battalions who are actually neo-Nazis, people have no money to even buy essentials like food and medicine. While the government is still pledging that the EU and the US are going to help and Ukraine is going to turn into a paradise, the people in Ukraine start to feel like they were misled, as they truly were. So, the government has several options:
In the past few weeks we are witnessing the largest protests in the history of the relatively new country Macedonia. What for the Western media seemed to be sudden protests for democracy, European values and against the corruption in the government, is definitely far from it.
First, we cannot talk about sudden organization and rise up of the people when in the town Kumanovo we saw how members of the National Liberation Army, which is an Albanian armed organization operating in Macedonia, were firing against policemen. In just days, more than 25 people were killed from which at least 8 were policemen.
Does NATO really exist? Seriously.
As the world gets closer to a new major war this question is worth asking.
Now, it may sound like a strange question… What do you mean with “does NATO exists?”, everyone knows it exists? It’s an official organisation. It does exist, right?
Well, yes, on paper. It exists as a structure, rather complicated structure but still, it’s there.
It’s 2015. The world has not ended yet.
2014 was rich in significant events and important changes. In this article we will make a brief recap of what happened in the world during the last 365 days.
In one sentence it was another year of controlled global chaos – many things happened, people get confused, plans change but overall it seems that what happened was well orchestrated or at least expected to a big degree.
However 2014 had some events that will probably be historical marks in the future. So lets recap them.
The world leaders are debating these days about whether they have to join forces against this “new” enormous terrorist threat called ISIS that apparently “has appeared from nowhere”. The United States have already started to bomb some ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria but now the conversations are about bigger coalition against this new big enemy.
The uninformed public is watching the news, sees how radical islamists execute people and the officials, well, they take advantage of all this.
Something is rotten in the state of Ukraine. There are a lot of questions about the Malaysian jet that are pretty inconvenient both for the Kiev junta and for USA that support it. Despite the whole propaganda confusion, it is not hard to understand the discrepancy between USA’s accusations against Russia and the facts that were alleged.
In this article about the Ukrainian crisis, we present a point of view that is pretty different from the ones on the mass media. The economist Mikhail Khazin gives a well-grounded explanation of the situation in Ukraine with the competition between China and USA for markets. Here are the most significant points.
