    The U.S. may have created a pool of quicksand…and jumped in

    NORTH CAROLINA - It has been suggested that the various hostile moves initiated by the Trump administration against Venezuela and Iran, to cite just two countries under economic siege, is that the U.S. literally has no alternative. No alternative but to try to counter every single development anywhere that might diminish the concept (at the least) of America as the sole superpower and hegemon, as it has been especially since the fall of the Soviet Union. This, it has been argued, is because the U.S. is fundamentally tapped out financially (with over $22 trillion in debt and at least $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities) and must resort literally to stealing resources and power and demanding obeisance wherever it can be had wherever it may be waning.

    Coexistence between Sunnis and Shias must be a primary goal

    NORTH CAROLINA - It may seem improbable but the very key to whether the world enjoys real (and somewhat relative, if not absolute) "peace" going forward, as well as the fate of the U.S. as any kind of somewhat respected but former imperial (and absurdly imperious) power, depends on two things: the end of U.S. disrespect for international laws, most evident in the “regime change” wars, and on the fate of the Palestinians and whether they are given civil rights and released from bondage in their own country.
