    Understanding the Israeli occupation of Palestine

    NIGERIA/ JIGAWA - The idea of nation and nationalism came of age during the early nineteenth century and the trend started with the establishment of a modern state in Western Europe. Until then, the predominant form of political organization in the world was ‘premodern’ in nature, formally the empire state. It was the European aspiration to colonize and dominate most of the countries, in part which it actually did; that awakened the people to the idea of depending their nations (nationalism).

    TEHRAN - President Donald Trump claims the vast Military Industrial Complex, otherwise known as the MIC, which has become everything Eisenhower in 1960 warned against, is somehow “pressuring” him in to war on Iran.

    From Bazaar to Bourse

    On 20th May 2019, the Shana news agency reported that NIOC on the instructions of the Ministry of Petroleum will undertake, pursuant to the current Iranian year budget law, a sales programme of six million barrels per month of Iranian Light and Heavy Crude Oil and Iranian gas condensates on the IRENEX exchange platform. These sales will be priced in US dollars against UK Brent/BFOE (BWave) and Dubai US $ price benchmarks. I am unaware of any reason why this programme should be any more successful than the last, but it is possible that potential buyers have been discreetly found who are willing and able to buy this material.

    Whether more U.S. sparked chaos or real accord is the question that haunts the world

    NORTH CAROLINA - Iran’s leaders, Iran’s many friends and the people of Iran well know what is afoot right now with the Trump Administration, with John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, and with at least some members of the U.S. Congress and with other Neocons in D.C. “think tanks” and their various institutions.

    Trump’s “Threat” Administration is a one trick pony so far

    The Trump Administration ought to be renamed “The Threat Administration”. Even the so-called “special relationship” between the U.S. and the U.K. has been threatened simply because the Brits seem to want to buy top of the line Chinese 5G Huawei broadband technology. In fact, it’s not hard to get the impression that Trump and his foreign policy team, Bolton and Pompeo especially, are now bouncing off the bloody walls of the White House of late frustrated by their own failures so far and beginning to bump in to each other.

    U.S. undermines itself clinging to hegemonic notions

    NORTH CAROLINA - Anyone looking at Iran from afar could presume conditions have not been worse in the past 30 plus years, or since the end of the Iraq-Iran war, a war which never would have occurred if the U.S. had not urged Saddam Hussain on and given him chemical weapons. Little did Saddam know that in a few more years he would be hung by the Americans after the U.S. military had killed hundreds of thousands of his countrymen and destroyed much of Iraq’s infrastructure.

But once again it revealed the hypocritical, discriminatory and unfair Western governments’ treatment of other nations.

    Trump’s one opportunity left to survive with any positive legacy: dumping his Neocon, Zionist advisors

    NORTH CAROLINA - Well, for sure, the designation by Trump of the IRGC as a “terrorist” organization is a foolish move, but not Iran’s tit for tat response to it – designating the same for the U.S. central military command, or CENTCOM. This all can mostly present a warning for the remaining 5000 U.S. soldiers and diplomats in Iraq and the 2000 or so still lingering in Syria.
