MUAMMAR GADHAFI: A STUDY OF THE LAST OF THE METTERNICH-STATEMAN


The study of Muammar Gadhafi is too long, and here we do no justice to the subject, however, I, the author of the study, hope that, by presenting an authoritative picture of the figure as he real is, than what we are informed to believe, I can compensate on the injustice set out. Why My … Continue reading

The Disappearing Act of Our High Streets: The effects of The Internet & Low-Costs Shops


Before I discuss this issue, I would like to come out and present a little recent study that seems to support my hypothesis that Facebook will be gone by next year, the latest. There is no investment value for investors in these ”easily replicate-able” social networking ventures, as they are a thousands a dime; any … Continue reading

THE BIG-THREE OF THE MIDDLE EAST & THE NEW REGIONAL GRAND STRATEGY


Events are taking off,literally away from the command and control of the ever present wily of the western states in the middle eastern affairs. Now, the locals, the old regional powers are regaining and finding their new diplomatic and political voices in the region. Iran, Turkey and Egypt have been busy working together behind closed … Continue reading

Posted after watching a power Documentary called ”ETHOS”: the Key Speeches and Reviews


I have never been the one to be fascinated or fanatic of these proliferated ‘anti-establishment’ productions from Mr. Moore to 9/11 etc., but an intellectual friend of mine is. He is doing is doctorate in the International Institutions (UN, IMF, WHO etc), and he recently passed me a link to some excellent documentaries, he knows … Continue reading

The ‘Real Middle Eastern Revolution’: The Hamas-Fatah Union


We have already discussed and debated how in the more recent months we have been preoccupied and engaged on the events unfolding in the North Africa and Arabian Peninsula, what most refer to as the so-called ‘Jasmine Revolutions’, but without a doubt, the greatest event to proximity of actual revolution is the one taking place … Continue reading

The Conservatives-Led Coalition Finds The New Labour ‘Spin Mojo’


Yesterday at the parliament as many will no doubt remember as the result of the extensive bombing sound-bites that followed from our media,of the so-called ”Winniegate’ or something, in short, when mr. Cameron remarked to one of the Labours ‘females list star’ (this apparently is not sexist) to cool it (I will not repeat the … Continue reading

THE ARAB CRISIS: THE UNFORESEEN OPPORTUNITY FOR MUSLIM-NATIONALIST


Today,if one is to have a discussion with Muslim groups and communities throughout the world, there is one theme that seems to come out ‘God has given us a new hope’, not for ‘freedom’ as the disillusioned west sees it, but rather, the hope to ‘lay their new foundations of unity’, through free training, free … Continue reading

ON THE CAUSES OF WAR: SECURITY v COMMERCIAL


There are plenty of theories and writers from AJP Taylor, Fischer, and so many, who have brought and discussed many different causes, minor and major, of warfare throughout the history. These theories are just that, one person viewpoint from his/her perspective (e.g. an elitist theorists will state a theory from a sympathetic elite point of … Continue reading

THE NEW BALANCE OF POWER IN GLOBAL AFFAIRS


I thought I might as well jump start before more of my ideas get hijacked, or the illusion of so. Anyway, the argument here is simple. When one observe hyper-activities from one bloc and lesser activities from another, by the laws of logic is, there is something happening, and as it is at the present, … Continue reading

GLOBAL WARMING OR ANTIQUATED GREGORIAN CALENDER?


I have, and I believe most of the rest of you have as well, observed the seemingly increasing unpredictability of meteorological events. The seasons seems to come and go earlier than there usual expected months and days, as winter seems to start early, and the grim January, seems relegated to grim Late Nov-Early Dec days; … Continue reading

ON PERSONALITY: MY ‘WALKING THEORY’


As I expected questions and enquiries aroused as to how one can deduce JUST from the observation of a person’s walk, what his or her personality is? Well, it is without a doubt my fault and failure in the lack of elaboration as to what I really meant to state, when I noted that I … Continue reading

ESSAY ON THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE HUMAN NATURE


As a result of seemingly hot-debate that ensued post-human intelligence discussion, I thought it was natural and should also take the opportunity to complement that aspect of human beings, with the other hot issue of our natural or nurture-al debate. Well, as the heading of this article portrays this essay is Hobbesian, since I believe … Continue reading

AIRPOWER EXPERIMENT XXI-II: BATTLESPACE LIBYA


Even before the realities of Air Warfare, futurists of the early nineteenth century were already building up the great hype and powers of aircrafts, in dominating future battlefields, that, without any need for ground armies, or as sound-bites culture refer to, boots on the ground. From H. G. Wells to Douhet, Mitchell, Ap and to … Continue reading

DISCOURSES ON THE HUMAN INTELLIGENCE


I believe in the old philosophers focal point of their major contention on the subject of epistemology, i.e. theory or philosophy of knowledge, that between the rationalist and the empiricist, and the answer lies in between, or as Kant argued ‘synthetic’ knowledge; the mix of the experience (for me, personally, the greatest single tool of … Continue reading

THE RUBICON: FICTION TO REALITY


Who has heard of a new, at least I think it is, US TV series, called the Rubicon? The Plot in a nutshell is of a publicly-funded intelligence management centre, called The American (Something) Society, the old Cold-War trickery of think tanks as intelligence and espionage centres of analysis and productions. Anyway, coming back to … Continue reading

WHERE IS A BRITISH EQUIVALENT TO US TEA-PARTY,MINUS RIGHT-WINGISM?


The crucial local and devolved states elections are in a fortnight time, and one can bet the usual suspects will again contest for the prizes. This is because, the higher levels of British Apathy in Politics means that there lacks a real ‘independent’ coalition of rainbow, so to speak, that, a mix of independents and … Continue reading

GADHAFI, LIBYA, AFRICA, THE WEST & THE PRESENT CRISIS


Good Morning, Yes, the title does seem much more encompassing in breadth than what is to be the actual reality, which is a small brief or outline of how these factors come together in defining the end-game of the present crisis in Libya; the balance of probabilities, as to what the outcome might look like, … Continue reading

WHAT ‘MISSION CREEP’ REALLY MEANS?


At the present we have heard a lot of the concept of ‘mission creep’, from the media to the greater establishment, that we are actually ”exhausted” and ”do not care anymore”. Well, this is the goal of the concept, that is, mission creep; the conditioning of the public for their ends, and this (that the … Continue reading

THE WESTERN FRONT: THE AGE OF ORGANIC SLEEPER CELLS


A lot is going on in the world at the present, from the economic crises to political violence, from ever growing natural disasters to poverty, inequalities to exploitation, and so the list of compare and contrast goes on, and on, but alas, with lack of energy, enthusiasm, time and capabilities, here we wont delve into … Continue reading

THE MIDDLE EAST: A GEO-POLITICAL ANALYSIS


I wrote a piece within a small compendium entitled ‘ A Selected Collection on Contemporary Political Essays’, and the last essay, A Global Forecast, I wrote, with a hint of self-vindicated prophecy, that the Middle East will suffer an exhaustive and but less bloody political violence, not revolutions (as at the present, again, largely as … Continue reading
