    A good suggestion: The Alms of Century versus the Deal of Century

    TEHRAN - One of the most important goals of the Christian Zionism is to start a war for eliminating great powers and dividing vast countries into smaller ones. The number of countries before World War was less than 100, but now there are 205 countries in the world along with newly-independent ones. After the collapse of the Russian, Japanese, German, Austrian, Hungarian and Ottoman empires during WWI, the U.S., France, and Britain were victorious countries. With the Sykes-Picot Agreement (1917), which was, in fact, a confidential agreement between France and Britain benefiting from Russian support, the Ottoman Empire became Turkey. Then Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine divided between France and Britain. According to the agreement Palestine should be governed by these countries.

    Absolution from crimes by deflection and deceit is never successful

    NORTH CAROLINA - Vladimir Putin appears far and away smarter than any major Western “leader”, especially Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo. Ansarullah appears to have attacked the Abqaiq oil processing plant in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia with drones or something, or claims it did. Maybe they fired off missiles of some sort that had adopted Iranian technology. It’s a mystery, but whatever and whoever hit the plant, and it wasn’t the homemade firecracker rockets that fly out of the Gaza Strip to land in some farm field around Sederot inside “Israel”, whatever this “country” without defined borders really is geographically (it’s never been reliably determined).

    Trump's defeat in the trade war with the red dragon

    The US-China trade war has reached a critical stage. Although the US president believes one of the main reasons for John Bolton's dismissal from power was his disagreement with Trump over Beijing, the claim is completely false. Continuing a trade war with China is one of the issues that President Donald Trump has. America will continue to insist on it. Here's a look at the latest news and analysis on the Washington-Beijing trade war:

    Bolton and Neocons responsible for billions in opportunity costs – does Trump realize it?

    NORTH CAROLINA - It’s obvious Donald Trump, who touts himself as a superb “dealmaker”, has not made any important deals yet as President. In fact, he’s done little but tear up extant deals, and the most notable one he destroyed was the JCPOA. But at the same time, Trump literally likes talking to other leaders, and some other leaders have responded to him saying they actually thought he was almost charming and reasonably well spoken. One would like to imagine this is the case, because Trump made a lot more sense when he was on the campaign trail back in 2016 than he has in the past two years. Why the change, because now, very few people like Trump, and his reelection is in doubt?
