    Britain's shadow over India's crimes in Kashmir

    LONDON - While there is no doubt that the Indian armed forces and the fascist Hindu nationalist ruling party in India need to be held to account for the reign of terror they have unleashed on the people of Kashmir throughout these decades, the latest attempt to annex the disputed territory to the union of India is particularly alarming and a matter of grave concern.

    Boris and the English Job

    A new book, "The English Job", by former British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw documented Iran's long (and merited) history of distrust of the British motives and actions. I note that the new British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, comes from the heart of the British or (as better known in Iran) English ’Establishment’ which was largely responsible for the decisions and actions which generated this mistrust.

    NORTH CAROLINA - One huge lie zipping around the Internet of late is the depiction of a map showing the (alleged) extent of the Persian “empire” in 300 BC, as it is labeled. It shows that the Achaemenid dynasty as empire controlling lands stretching from a small part of Europe west of the Bosporus across Anatolia to Bactria and what today is Pakistan and western India.

    Follow the leader — the UK’s Ill-advised piracy on the high seas

    WASHINGTON - The United Kingdom should recognize what has become its position in the world — an important nation with an imperialistic history but now a much diminished global power. Blindly following the United States into hazardous waters could have dangerous results: America might not reward subservience or could change course in its own self-interest. While following George Bush into Iraq is now widely conceded in the UK as having been ill advised, British leaders seem to have forgotten the consequences of that disastrous decision.

    Analyze of second referendum and the issue of British exit from The EU in aspect of British law

    The separation of Britain from the European Union is an important controversy for Britain, Europe and the whole world, which will have important legal, political and economic consequences if it is realized. The United Kingdom held a referendum in 2016 in which people voted to leave UK from the European Union, and the British government took some time to negotiate with Europe and take the necessary measures to exit from the union, until March 29, 2017, and, In the event of a delay, it will eventually complete until March 31, 2019, but so far it has not happened. Clearly, the exit from the European Union, will has serious impacts on Britain, and so far, although Britain has passed the time-limit, did not exit the union.  UK may have a new referendum on this issue.  Holding of a new referendum is an important debate, firstly, is it a legal referendum? Secondly, is it democratic? Thirdly, what should be done in the event of a conflict between the outcomes of the two legal proceedings?

    Demand that the Mideast become a nuclear-weapon-free zone!

    NORTH CAROLINA - Petty and small-minded is the sole way to describe the restrictions on Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif’s movements to a six-block area around the United Nations complex while he is in New York to address a UN group. This kind of action and mentality is the stuff of petty tyrants, not befitting the alleged leader or government of an “empire” that has any serious, responsible sense of itself or of others overseas or internally who don’t happen to be “Caucasian”. Or “Western” or whatever.

    TEHRAN - Days, after Iranian forces downed an intruding American drone over the Iranian airspace, the stories of latest developments and stances of the two sides, are still making the headlines across the world. Third parties are inviting both Iran and the United States to show restraint and deescalate the tension.

    NORTH CAROLINA - No one can legitimately feel sorry for Donald Trump. For 14 months he’s been in way over his head in geopolitics, and that primarily about Iran, but with the various sanctions and threats cast upon every continent like confetti at a wedding everyone knows eventually is going fail and wind up in divorce court, Trump looks the clown to most all the world.
