    New challenges of disaster management in Iran

    The Iranian plateau is located in a very seismically active region of the world and is known not only for its major catastrophic earthquakes but also for the disasters relating to natural hazards, especially earthquakes. About 2% of the earthquakes of the world occur in Iran but more than 6% of the victims of the world earthquakes during the 20th century are reported from Iranian earthquakes. This shows the high level of vulnerability in Iran.

    Martyr Qassem Soleimani: The real shatterer of ISIS

    Turning logic and rationality on its head, the psychopathic U.S. assassin-in-chief has made the absurd claim that he was the one who defeated Daesh (ISIS or ISIL) in its entirety. This is while it was none other than the whiny wimp in the White House himself who ordered the gangland style, terror execution of the Iranian hero responsible for the defeat of ISIS, Martyr Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.

    The U.S. movement from prosperity to utter decay…

    Very few people in the West nowadays know or have heard of British General Sir John Glubb, but it is probable that some educated people in the Middle East know the name, and particularly in Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. Glubb (1897-1986) was a soldier, author, and even a scholar of sorts who from 1939, until he was dismissed by King Hussein of Jordan in 1956, led and trained the famed “Arab Legion” as its commanding officer.

    American “exceptionalism” is fading at warp speed…

    Americans, at least 80 percent of over 320 million souls, are getting walloped by one thing or another. They are having a hard time coping, and while the coping problems may be their own fault either from ignorance or a lack of broad perspective, what’s going on is really not their fault. The United States looks like what it has often claimed other countries are, and often because of U.S foreign policies and war mongering: a “failed” or failing state. So, what is this?

    The Shape of Things to Come

    Like everyone else, Iranians observed the extraordinary U.S. oil market events of 20th & 21st April 2020 and wondered what on earth was going on, and what it means for Iran's future as a major oil producer.  In Tehran, in October 2008 I recall similar astonishment as the global dollar financial system experienced a meltdown from which Iran was safely insulated.

    Armed groups in U.S. protest coronavirus shutdown

    In the not-so-united United States, conservative-backed protests against state-ordered quarantines have erupted in a number of cities. Seeing an opportunity to push his open America agenda, U.S. president Donald Trump has encouraged the anti-shutdown demonstrations, which have included armed groups among the participants who are clamoring for an end to the stay-at-home orders.  Many state governors, however, insist that opening for business too soon and without adequate testing would lead to a sharp jump in coronavirus infections.

    TEHRAN - World War II ended after the United States' forces used mass-destruction weapons for the first time in world history against two Asian cities which left nothing but the mass killing of a vast number of Japanese civilians. The US atomic bombardment of the Japanese cities was a new evil innovation in utilizing science and technology by individual countries to gain more power. The new world order was formed by the US over the globe in 1945.

Some voices are even saying that the assassination of General Qassim Soleimani has backfired and was a “mistake” because it has not snuffed out Iran’s capacity or willingness to respond to U.S. aggression in Iraq and Syria and elsewhere.

    NORTH CAROLINA - On March 13, a “Friday the 13th” by the way, a date in the West anyway often considered to be full of bad news, bad luck and bad omens -- a superstition to be sure – U.S. President Donald Trump was ebullient and bragging that the U.S. stock markets had one of its best days ever. The U.S. equity market climbed almost 10 percent on the 13th after a previous several days of what can only be termed a serious mauling by the proverbial “bear”. No, the U.S. equity market did not make up its losses so far this winter, and in fact closed lower than the highs made just before the vicious recession of 2008-09 that affected the entire world.

This announcement sparked anger among Algerian citizens, giving birth to a massive grassroots movement in several cities, the biggest outpouring of dissent seen in Algeria for decades in 1988 due to social despair, which surprised the international community and observers of Algerian politics due to its peaceful nature.
