NATO’s Death Wish

It is reasonable to surmise that NATO will shortly die anyway. That is an unstated but undoubtedly implied premise of Russia's Demilitarisation and Denazification program now being rolled out, beginning with a clear-out of the ugly side of Ukraine - which statement is a socio-cultural reference rather than geographical. No such D&D program in any... Continue Reading →

Image – Self-Explanatory – Choose a Team (No fence-sitting)

I choose Red Team. It's where most folk live, everything is made, resources are most plentiful, enjoys the friendship of most nations, is where the future (if there is to be one anywhere) holds most promise, and Blue team presents no credible alternative.

What better gift to the world could the expanding new world powers, slipping easily and cooperatively into their destined role, offer to us? It is like a ray of light piercing the dark gloom of long-suffered western oppression,... Continue Reading →
