The Tibet Card: Punishing China for its reluctance to impose sanctions on Iran

29-03-2008 14:18

It seems that the US government excels at propaganda for it continues to win over the very people it has betrayed and caused to be killed; buying their trust, it offers a friendship that is only self-serving.

A Less than Grand Strategy: NATO's New Vision, The Preemptive Use of Nuclear Wea

29-03-2008 10:28

A few months ago, a report was published entitled "Towards a Grand Strategy for an Uncertain World: Renewing Transatlantic Partnership". It was written by five generals and it proposes a new vision for the NATO alliance and a strengthening of ties between the United States and the European Union.

Worried Just a Bit? Bush Launches Economic 'Shock and Awe' on Iran

27-03-2008 13:02

Although the "Shock and Awe" doctrine became famous after the Pentagon adopted it for the military invasion of Iraq, the doctrine has always had an economic side too. In fact, the authors of this doctrine believed that the economic ruin visited upon a target nation might be more effective than bombs and bullets – largely because they are more invisible, more politically palatable than big-bang extravaganzas.

20-03-2008 16:39
