On Human Immortality: Death is Failures of Scientific Advances Not NATURAL or INEVITABLE!


Previously I discussed the issue, on human immortality, in some depth (follow this link) and I want to add a little more here with further developed new thinking. To be brief, I have come to believe that human death is not inevitable or natural but instead what is natural and inevitable – due to environment, … Continue reading

Exclusive: Taliban Getting Ready For Kabul


Simple as the title state: reliable (on ground) sources inform me Taliban are getting ready to siege (initially) Kabul. Currently under discussion are two options. Sources did not divulge first but appears to be a series of unrelentless ‘hit and runs’, raids, assassinations etc to indicate presence inside the guarded-city. The second, which I was … Continue reading

Bloodless Victory (Sun Tzuian): My Professional Advice To Western Leaders on A Best Syrian Strategy (written as an open letter)


I sent in this advice (reprinted here below in full) as an open letter. Dear Western Leaders, So far every strategy rolled out on Syria has been a failure. Why? Because first and foremost is the simple fact that Syria has never been a major concern, or of interest, to western states excluding the egos … Continue reading

Critical Thoughts On ISIS Defections (1), US Contemporary Politics (Incl.Presidency of Obama & Fiorina-Sonnenfeld Fued) & On The Value of Child-Bearing Today


This post is a brief discussion (a la critical thinking) on; Rethinking ISIS Defection: a point I strongly argued – and urged – in support for our western policy-makers thinking as best option than bombing, for weeks now; even before the recent newly published ICSR Report recommendation on similar lines. On Contemporary US Politics, including … Continue reading

Merchants of Chaos: Evil-Stupid Genius of Western Powers


Very briefly. Syria is next. After failures of proxies in performance and wasted funds and resources western powers are now getting into it slow-but-rapid [mission creep]; special forces boots on grounds, drones etc. Have we forgotten Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and other indirect covert involvements such as Egypt, Tunisia, Mali, Somalia, Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Burkina … Continue reading

The Rise & Rise of Ninety-Nine-Percentile-Politicians at War Against The Entrenched One-Percentile-Elite: The New Pattern of Global (and Western) Politics Post-2008 Great Economic Crisis (What Next?)


On his Chapter Four (‘Concerning A Civil Principality’) from his infamous work, The Prince, Niccolo Machiavelli wrote; ”… people do not wish to be ruled nor oppressed by the nobles, and the nobles wish to rule and oppress the people…” He goes on to state that; ”He who obtains sovereignty by the assistance of the … Continue reading

Analysis: Al-Qaeda & Promotion of Hamza Bin Laden As Group’s New Youthful-Image


The point in a statement is simple. Recent AL-Zawahiri and Al-Qaidah deliberate and conscious decision to promoting the young Hamza Bin Laden (son of Usama) is without a doubt an effort to canvass for new younger supporters who are more attracted to equally youthful and energetic/vibrant ISIS/Islamic State and thus leaving Al-Qaidah – oldies-led – … Continue reading

Inside The Mind of The Islamic State: Why ISIS Might Actually Win (The Theory of Flags)?


Before I explain the theory on why ISIS/Islamic State might actually just win let me outline ‘how I came to this theory’. So my study is like any other student-practitioner of foreign politics, security and military affairs, in other words tend to be filled wall to wall with maps of various types and ancient artefacts … Continue reading

Critical Insight: Islamic State (ISIS) Gets Legitimacy As Only ‘True’ Islamic Revolutionary-Resistance Movement From Unlikely Source (Talibans & Jabhat Al-Nusra)!


To be very brief, I believe the recent three very significant coinciding events might prove very beneficial for ISIS in both short- and long-term strategic gains. Of course I am talking about; First, the recent Taliban’s leaders (Mullah Muhammad Omar) approval of his group’s political rapprochement and open-minded to talks with both the Afghan and … Continue reading

What ISIS Really Wants: Christoph Reuter’s Der Spiegel’s Article IS Far More Better (and highly recommended) In Providing An Actual (Not Imaginery) Answer Than ‘Over-Promoted’ Graeme Woods Article of same Title


The recently Der Spiegel article on ISIS written by Christoph Reuters, though it preoccupies itself and thus covers mainly structural investigation of the group based on ‘found secret documents’, does provide a worthy answer to ‘what ISIS really wants’ (‘relative great power’) than Graeme Wood’s ‘over-publicized’ article of same wording published few months ago on … Continue reading

Ukraine Crisis: Did Poroshenko Defensive Attitude At Minsk Summit Doomed The Ceasefire (by Pissing Off Putin)?


The question is simple: did Poroshenko bad – and unprofessional or unstatesman like – defensive attitude (almost to the level of a scorned teenager) doomed the Ukrainian ceasefire from set-and-go? Pres. Putin is well known as a very proud person and attacking his personality – or Russia interest while he is the appointed leader which … Continue reading

So with great – and the usual pre-conditioning – media fanfare for weeks on in preparation of what ”was to come out” the US Senate Report on CIA and Torture finally came out and surprise surprise WE, of course, LEARNED NOTHING NEW OR EXPLOSIVE; actually we learned something ”new”, the apparent names of the ‘black … Continue reading

A Theory of International Politics & Security: Why The Westernisation of Non-Western States Make these Vulnerable (& Easy Prey) To Regime Change & General Western Interference


Is it possible to apply predictive analysis or general -studious -observational analysis in understanding which countries may fall foul – next – to western attempts of regime change and within what timeline? This article argues it is very much possible – though one must appreciate the complexities of predicting international behaviour as influenced essentially by … Continue reading

Cold and Hot: Three-Front War & The West


The West, as a collective, just got dragged into a nightmarish three-front wars. With Asia against a giant, China, which at the present is visibly Cold War in nature, within Middle East with the Islamists et al (including Russia), which is of course Hot and Shadow Wars, and finally in Europe with Russia, an open … Continue reading

Human MOTs: The Secret of Immortality (just philosophical enquiry)?


I was pondering about human beings and mortality, ageing and sickness. Why we die, age or get sick? Is it really because of ‘time is up’, diseases and so forth? and if so is there a secret to immortality or something close to it, that is, longer longetivity in human lifespan. I think I might … Continue reading
