Libya, Seven Years On: A Shame for the West

The FUKUS Axis France-UK-US turned the country with the highest Human Development Index in Africa into a failed state. Accountability? Are you joking? After Messrs.

Bush & Blair’s Iraq War was Key that Opened Door to Syria’s Current Hell

If the pain of birth is the price of life, Syria’s birth as a truly independent nation has come at the price of eight years of brutal and merciless struggle. As with the Vietnamese people, so with the Syrians. Their struggle against imperialism and hegemony has earned them a place at history’s table that can …

Russia Isn’t Turning Libya into the ‘New Syria’ But It Wouldn’t Hurt if It Tried

The UK Sun published a scandalous report alleging that Russia is trying to turn Libya into a “new Syria”, but objectively speaking and overlooking the unverified claims made in the piece, it wouldn’t be a bad thing if Moscow tried. Libya's been thrust front and center into the news this week but not for anything having to directly do …
