On July 8, the representative of the Ansar Allah armed forces, Brigade General Yahya Saree, during a regular briefing on the current situation in Yemen, accused the United States of supplying weapons to Saudi Arabia and its regional allies and providing political cover for their acts of aggression. Specifically, he noted: “In recent days, Yemeni armed forces have discovered large quantities of US-made ammunition at the cleared positions of...

The policy that the United States has recently been pursuing towards China would give you the impression that America’s political elite are suffering from a form of political schizophrenia. Moreover, not only can the signs of political division be seen in the deepening divide in American politics, but even the behavior of individual high-profile politicians is inconsistent. Although America’s hard-line anti-Chinese stance in foreign policy has...

A decadent Roman Empire was ultimately brought down by vigorous Germanic tribes, which it viewed as ‘barbarians’. The Pax Americana is being brought down by ancient civilizations that whose commitment to freedom of thought does not lead to freedom to act, whether vis a vis other nations, or individual behavior. Backing up, as presented to the American public, the standoff with both China and Russia is born of Washington’s ‘disappointment’ in...

Further evidence the UK hides behind “human rights” rather than stands for them was demonstrated when London laced sanctions on Hong Kong after the passing of a security law aimed at combating overt foreign interference in special administrative region of China. British state media in an article titled, “UK suspends extradition treaty with Hong Kong,” would claim: The UK government will suspend its extradition treaty...

If war breaks out between China and the United States, there is a high probability that the precipitating factor will be the South China Sea. The United States is currently running another of its so-called “freedom of navigation” exercises in the region, employing no less than two aircraft carriers, together with their supporting armada of warships. The western media regularly report these naval exercises but rarely if ever is the historical...

The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has shone the spotlight on the research being conducted within the network of US partner biolabs in many countries of the world, and on the fact that it has not been playing an active role in curbing the spread of COVID-19. And yet, the key goal of USA’s Biological Threat Reduction Program is to “counter and reduce the risk of biological threats and to prepare, respond to, and recover from them if they happen”...

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has clearly decided to launch an offensive on multiple fronts, taking advantage of what he clearly perceives as a geopolitical vacuum. From his recent call to Islamic prayer at the Haga Sophia in Istanbul, to his breaking of the arms embargo to back the Tripoli regime against the advance of General Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army in the East, from continuing military presence inside Syria to refusal...

When I used to grow up in a socialist Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, we were told that even if one single human life was endangered, the entire country had to stop and fight for his or her survival. That is how we were raised. That was our culture, or call it the foundation of our worldview. I remember, once there was an explosion in Bohemia, a boiler blew up, and people were buried in the rubble of collapsed apartment building....

According to many observers, the Libyan conflict is nearing its climax due to the number of players it now involves, a turning point which will be nothing short of crossing the Rubicon. Tensions are mounting in Libya today, and not only along the front line where the eastern and western centers of power clash, but also within the Government of National Accord (GNA). Accusations are being made within the GNA that almost all of its power has been...

The political, economic, and overall situation in Iraq continues to decline, forcing not only local authorities, but foreign players in this country torn apart by armed US aggression, to actively search for ways to bring it into at least something resembling order. Discontent among the population at the presence of coalition and, above all others, American forces, which have been located in Iraq since 2003, has lately been doing nothing but...

Based on news reports and political commentary in the UK, at present, the country is experiencing a full-blown crisis, and it remains unclear how it plans to resolve it. The outcome of negotiations on the future EU-UK relationship after Britain exited the European Union is uncertain. It is possible that a deal will not be reached or, on the contrary, UK’s “wise” negotiators could strike a bargain with their counterparts from Europe. Having...

Against the backdrop of a recent overall decline in US standing and influence due to the current administration’s policies, Washington has started to fight ever more desperately to maintain a foothold in regions of geopolitical interest. One graphic illustration of this is the US’ deepening struggle over Central Asia (CA). The US largely came to appreciate the strategic value of this region in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks....
