Selling Saudis the Nuclear Rope to Hang US

Selling nuclear reactors to Saudi Arabia and allowing them to build massive uranium-enrichment facilities and plants to extract plutonium is a stupendously dumb idea. So, it is perhaps fitting that the Trump administration is sending Rick Perry to discuss all this with the Saudis. Of all the recent secretaries of energy, Perry knows the least …

Withholding Medical Supplies is a Vicious Part of the Ghouta Siege

Sieges are a merciless business, never more so than in Syria.

It’s Okay to Constructively Criticize Russia, Even President Putin Does It!

The Alt-Media’s “politically correct” “glorification” of all things Russia-related is a “well-intended” but knee-jerk response to the rampant Russophobia of the Mainstream Media, but it nevertheless results in the generation of an overly “perfect” and therefore inaccurate version of the country that’s at odds with reality and was just debunked by none other than President …
