    Trump’s ill-advised move threatens to escalate global trade war

    U.S. President Donald Trump, known for his madman approach and eccentric nature, reckons trade wars are “good” and tariffs should be raised, even if it leads to tit-for-tat escalation and hurts economies of other nations. Trump’s latest ill-advised move threatens to spark a global trade war which could possibly have far-reaching consequences.

    Does Iran represent a nuclear problem or a gas problem?

    It is said that there are always two reasons for people's behaviour: the reason they give, and the real reason. Throughout history, religious and political reasons have been invented to justify struggles for natural resources: firstly land, and secondly resources passing through or embedded in land.

    Who does Pompeo think he is kidding?

    Mike Pompeo, the new U.S. Secretary of State in the Trump administration, has this week made radical demands upon the sovereign and significant and thousands of year old state of Iran (or Persia, as you will) and its 90 or so million people that, in effect, can either make a sane and reasonable person do one of two things, or both: Be rolled with uncontrollable laughter and/or curled up into a ball of lachrymose despair. And I alone, as a U.S. citizen, am not alone in thinking so inside the U.S.

    CHICAGO – Senator “Tom Cotton” has become a 99controversial figure in the U.S. Congress since 2014.
