Flashpoints of War: Israel and Ukraine's Role in Global Conflict
In the intricate geopolitical tapestry of the modern world, regional conflicts often carry the seeds of broader, more catastrophic wars. Presently, two such conflicts - in Israel and Ukraine - stand as potential flashpoints, threatening to escalate beyond their borders and possibly culminating in a global conflict reminiscent of the devastating world wars of the 20th century. This essay explores the complex dynamics of these conflicts and how they might interconnect to spark a broader, more destructive war, drawing the world into a vortex of unprecedented turmoil.
Private Enterprise vs Public Service
Introduction This is not a rant against good private enterprise, but it is NOT a public service, despite many politicians telling us that certain ones are. This is a bit of observational history and why the world is in such a terrible economic and climactic state because of people being sold the new god of money.
Festive priorities all screwed up in a desensitised world
Heading from the bus stop on Wood Street to the Aneurin Bevan statue on Queen Street the temperature was far too low to follow the normal route down St Mary Street, instead I took the path through St David’s Centre and immediately wished I’d braved the cold outside.
Uefa logic dictates Israel should face same sanction as Russia
I’m not someone who generally approves of using sport for political ends, believing friendly competition is perhaps the best tool we possess to unite people from different cultures and backgrounds… but as more and more money has come into play during my lifetime even the world of sport has become tainted by greed and avarice.
Church bell tolls for an end to the ethnic cleansing of Palestine
Boasting an impressive list of speakers, including singer and TV personality Charlotte Church, Saturday’s Welsh National March For Palestine saw thousands of humanitarian crusaders from across Wales gather in Cardiff’s Central Square to express their prayers for the UK government to stop condoning Benjamin Netanyahu’s campaign of terror in Gaza, where tens of thousands of children and civilians have been slaughtered by the Israel Defence Forces since the false-flag Hamas raid on 7 October.
Putin is Undead
Oleh Smal drew the cartoon above in 2014. Putin had just annexed Crimea then and those of us who grew up in the Soviet Union knew he would not stop there. The vampire theme turned out to be prophetic.
A Palestinian's plea for life of her people to be valued by humanity
Israel’s genocidal campaign against the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank is not an isolated atrocity... history is littered with similar inhumane examples of the savagery mankind is capable of. Cambodia, Vietnam, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Nazi Germany, the list is endless and spans centuries.
Break in hostilities but Blair and Cameron back to stir things up
Just when you thought the situation in Gaza couldn’t get any more sinister, who should pop back up on the radar but former British prime ministers and World Economic Forum (WEF) facilitators David Cameron and Tony Blair.
Attacks on Disability Welfare Are Not Only Cruel but Counter-Productive
In times of trouble, you can always depend on a right-wing government to point their grubby fingers at society’s most vulnerable as the cause of all of society’s ills. The UK’s current Tory government is not much different. And finding themselves trailing in the polls, the conservatives have gone all-out in targeting the usual suspects: liberals, the impoverished, foreigners, and, of course, the so-called “work-shy”. The result has seen them try (and so far, fail) to illegally deport migrants to Rwanda, backtrack on environmental promises, and clamp down on various freedoms, including the right to protest. And now, hoping to appeal to their core base of voters, it seems they’re (once again) going after people with disabilities as well.
Look beyond the propaganda and demand the genocide stops
It must be so comforting for Israel’s despotic Likud leadership to know their globalist allies around the world are backing their Gaza genocide campaign to the hilt, pulling out all the stops to justify this fascist government’s repetition of the Nazi atrocities unleashed in WWII. Did the lessons of the Holocaust count for nothing?
A Victim of Ignorance and Greed
Most of my adult life, I have been a renter or a guest. As a child, I was not expected to contribute financially to my mother's rent or mortgage payments. However, after high school graduation, as an independent adult, I was expect to afford my own housing. That expectation is not unfair, but for over 30 years, I have witnessed and experienced many leases or contracts or rental agreements that have been unfair and according to American history, illegal.
Parliament fails to vote down Luciferian NWO global agenda
Sometimes there are reasons to be proud to be British, sadly yesterday was not one of them... with the motion calling for an immediate ceasefire to Israel's genocidal ethnic cleansing of Gaza defeated by 293 votes to 125 in Parliament.
