North Korea - Why Can't We Get Along?

Regular readers know I am a pacifist. I don't like any war. In fact, I dislike ALL forms of hatred, and I don't like the expectation that I should somehow take sides in ANY conflict. I have lost friendships over this when people thought they could manipulate me into political disagreements. I won't have any of it! I will gladly discuss issues, but I want such discussions to be nuanced. Otherwise it is just plain manipulation...

We just heard that the Attorney General will aim at finding leaks from The White House and intelligence agencies... Many are wondering what is 'fake news' and what is actually 'true news' at a time when the sitting President has acted in a very strange way, to put it in nice terms. :-)

Trump Will Be a One-Term President

There is no doubt about it. When you look at all the things current President Donald J Trump can't explain properly, he is on a kamikaze mission towards ultimate failure in the 2020 elections.

Summer Vacation - Amidst Political Chaos

I am taking a small vacation from politics - even amidst political chaos in numerous areas. I recognize that people are on vacation, so why write at a time when people aren't reading blogs? It is important to take a break from time to time.

Donald Trump's View on World Politics

Donald J Trump has barely been in office for five months, and he has already caused a lot of chaos. Most recently his antagonism towards cooperation and dialogue with Cuba has been in focus. What is going on right now? Are we watching The Apprentice live? Is the Twitter President a farce? One could in fact ask: is this REALLY what Republicans support since virtually nobody protests in the Republican party?

Terrorists Are Wimps!

Some of the biggest wimps are suicidal, and terrorist organizations take advantage of this psychological aspect. A short time ago, we all heard of Manchester, and last night it appears three men targeted London. Details will surface as Police do their investigations.

NATO and Climate - Both Are Important

NATO is historically a North Atlantic treaty. From its inception it was centered around western nations, and yet - as numerous nations changed their political systems - it has remained virtually unchanged in terms of who takes part in that alliance. It could be argued that as we face terrorism, we might have an interest in joining forces with Russia, China and numerous others in our 'new' challenging situation.

These Are Ugly Times in US Politics

There can be no doubt about the fact that these are ugly times in US politics. Even Republicans, who are otherwise behind their President, can see this. The firing of FBI director Comey is not any good sign for people who value democratic rights.

World War III

Some people are speculating whether a World War III is imminent. There are many reasons why this is pure speculation, even though rhetoric is sharpening between superpowers. We should be able to settle scores without the use of weapons, but some people are bent on creating divisions rather than building bridges.
