Russia Calls for International Resolution of Yemen War

Millions of Yemenis desperately need aid not forthcoming or arriving in woefully inadequate amounts. Obama’s war on Yemen using Saudi and other regional rogue states as convenient proxies continues after nearly eight weeks.

Raucous Swearing In of Israel’s New Ruling Coalition

It’s the most extremist in Israel’s history. It’s not a legitimate government of, by and for all Israelis equitably. It’s polar opposite.

So-called Israeli democracy is farcical, an illusion. None whatever exists. Palestinian MKs are impotent – potted plants with no policymaking say whatever, ...Read full article...

They prioritize stealing all valued Palestinian land. They deplore peace.

Chile’s government falters

Michele Bachelet ‘fires’ her cabinet to regain the people’s confidence What is a president to do when her government is not running smoothly?

Insanity Grips The Western World
