The US policy in Africa is centred on endless military intervention and bombing civilians and infrastructure (for instance, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, and nations of Sahel for over 30 years), even while terrorism and Islamist militancy have expanded.

The US security policy based on the reckless, and imperialist Wolfowitz Doctrine is collapsing, but Washington cannot admit either the policy or failure for fear of losing already waning credibility.

Innocent Palestinians bear the brunt of Israel’s Gaza war, but they are not the only victims of the conflict. So are freedoms of expression, the media, and academia in the West, as well as Arab autocracies. If anything, Israeli and pro-Israeli efforts to curtail debate about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, suppress criticism of Israel, and impose a restric...

World history shows that an independent policy of a charismatic leader of an important state often leads to foreign interference, i.e., a coup d’état and the overthrow of the undesirable ruler.

Contrary to popular belief, the French have never been in favour of colonization, but a pressure group, self-proclaimed “Colonial Party”, did manage to use its army to conquer economic opportunities. This pressure group, revived by presidents Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, François Hollande, Nicolas Sarkozy and Emmanuel Macron, laid the foundations for the curren...
