Why Can’t the U.S. Understand that Iran’s Regime (But Also Iranians in General) Have no Competing Ideological or Economic Interests?

Let me start off by saying, that I do not support the Mullahs in Iran. Their human rights record is atrocious, their theft of democracy with candidate disqualification is atrocious, … I could go on and on!

Trump is a Transactional (Not a Transformational) Politician, and has Revealed his Supporters to be Prostitutes

He calls fallen soldiers’ losers but feels like people should vote for him because he increased the military budget. He calls evangelists idiots privately after a session where they put their hands on his head and pray but feels like evangelists should vote for him because he signed executive orders supporting school prayer.

What we need is “Regionalism” Not Globalization

With the impending exit of Britain from the European Union, and America’s back-pedaling from many international agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and Paris Climate accord, there are signs that the ‘era’ of globalization is slowly but surely coming to an end.

How incredibly dependent the US is on Iran?

Iran’s recent announcements that it would pursue a Chah Bahar (port) rail link to Afghanistan on its own without India finally made me realize how incredibly dependent the US is on Iran.  Strangely, this didn’t quite hit me until very recently, and in fact it should have been painfully obvious to US ‘war’ planners back […]

Imagine Exxon, where the people marketing gasoline in Indonesia use a completely different […]

How Iran Got Sucked Into the Yemen Civil War

It is crucial to understand the historical background to Yemen’s Civil War. Its crucial to appreciate how a former Saudi Ally (the Houthis) drafted Iran to help them against the Saudis.
