the business of american wars......

Allan Behm, head of international and security at the Australia Institute, discusses foreign affairs, defence, AUKUS and security issues facing Australia. Behm poses the question: do we know who we are and what we stand for in attempting to secure our national interest?

 

Defence: who are we, what do we stand for?     By Allan Behm and Michael Lester

 

As we balance our relations with long time ally the United States and our economic relations with China in an increasingly fraught geo political environment, Australia is often fearful and lacking in confidence.

use all possible diplomatic pressure to stop Israel committing the crime of genocide.....

What Putin and China just did to Israel is SHOCKING and the UK is Furious w/ Lowkey

explaining the war of attrition....

WE HAVE EXPLAINED TILL WE GET BLUE IN THE FACE THAT RUSSIA DOES NOT WANT TO CONQUER UKRAINE BUT HAS A FEW DEMANDS IN REGARD TO WHAT "UKRAINE" WAS AND IS GOING TO BE... UKRAINE WAS NEVER A UNIFIED COUNTRY DUE TO ITS HISTORICAL AND ETHNIC MAKE UP, SIMILAR TO THE UK AND IRELAND PRIOR 1922.

still in bed with the yuckrainian nazis.....

A photograph has been discovered of the then Prince Charles receiving an award from a former member of the Waffen-SS.

Charles was given an honorary law degree during a ceremony at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada in 1983. 

In his acceptance speech, Charles praised those who had “sacrificed their lives 40 years ago” in the fight against Adolf Hitler.

Yet the award was conferred on him by a Nazi collaborator – the university’s chancellor Peter Savaryn.

The recent startling advance of Russian forces in northeastern Ukraine has dampened quite a bit of the enthusiasm in the pro-Kiev camp following passage in the US Congress of the supplemental aid bill in April. The febrile intensity with which supporters pleaded for the Ukraine aid, and the exaggerated importance they assigned to it, now seem a distant memory.

What is now clearer than ever is that Ukraine’s unravelling war effort cannot be fixed by simply switching the spigot of Western aid back on. So why did the Washington establishment treat the $60 billion figure as some kind of incantation that could ward off the looming crisis?

The ship is sinking, and the Democratic Party seems hellbent on drilling more holes in the hull. At a time when President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign is struggling in key battleground states with a burgeoning Uncommitted movement, the Florida Democratic Party’s leadership is doubling down on alienating its youth and progressive base and ignoring the winds of change.

Controversial American talking head Tucker Carlson is heading to Australia after a surprise invite from a high-profile local figure.

Tucker Carlson, a former Fox News host turned divisive freelance journalist, will headline a series of ‘freedom conferences’, Australian mining magnate Clive Palmer has announced.

Carlson will appear at events in Cairns, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne between June and July this year. 

Tickets are already on sale and start at $203.

In a statement issued by Palmer’s United Australia Party on Monday, the businessman said the tour is aimed at “waking up Australia and encouraging people to join the fight to protect the future for themselves and their families”.

peace on russian terms.....

Kiev's Western backers need to understand that long-range strikes on Russian territory using weaponry they have supplied would represent a conflict escalation that would have “serious consequences,” Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned.

Speaking to reporters at the end of a two-day visit to Uzbekistan, Putin addressed recent Ukrainian demands for NATO to permit the use of their weapons to attack deep inside Russia as well as comments by the US-led bloc’s head, Jens Stoltenberg, appearing to endorse the tactic.

the war on drug war.....

People use drugs for many reasons: they want to feel good, stop feeling bad, or perform better in school or at work, or they are curious because others are doing it and they want to fit in. The last reason is very common among teens.

Drugs excite the parts of the brain that make you feel good. But after you take a drug for a while, the feel-good parts of your brain get used to it. Then you need to take more of the drug to get the same good feeling.

not quite there yet.....

THIS IS THE EDITORIAL IN THE NEW YORK POST... A PRINTED VERSION OF FOX NEWS.....

The time has come to push Moscow to end its war on Ukraine — by supplying Kyiv with the right weapons fast, removing boneheaded restrictions on their use and making clear that Russia simply can’t win.

The alternative: Watch Vladimir Putin and his forces gobble up our ally bit by bit — and then prepare for a far broader Russian-triggered conflict sure to involve NATO and US troops.

a mainstream feature of israeli governance for over 70 years.......

The rather timid headline for a recent aggressive story in the New York Times (NYT) introduced a detailed investigation by that newspaper of how the governance of Israel has been captured by brutalised backers of apartheid.

the UK is on the march.....

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak last week found a new and ridiculous way to announce a national election by standing in front of No.10 Downing St in drenching rain, without an umbrella.

But the campaign quickly grew more serious. Sunak’s first election promise was that his government would reinstate compulsory national service for all 18-year-olds. This is a bold idea for an unpopular government to stake its future on. Did Sunak do this because of the seriousness of the military threats to Britain or because of the desperation of the British Tory party to win votes?

 

never seen greater irresponsibility than Europe getting involved in the yuckrainian conflict....

BUDAPEST (Sputnik) - Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Sunday that he had never seen greater irresponsibility than Europe getting involved in the conflict in Ukraine without calculating what it would cost.

"Europe is becoming so involved in the war that it does not even have an estimate of the scale of the costs and means necessary to achieve its military objective. I have never seen anything more irresponsible in my life," Orban said in an interview with the Patriota YouTube channel.

He added that, in his opinion, NATO wanted to become a party to the conflict in Ukraine and "the chances that the alliance can be kept from doing so are limited."

Budapest is against having decisions on the service of Hungarian citizens made "in Brussels or Germany," Orban emphasized.

 

 

project lazy europa.............

The last state visit by a French president to Germany was by Jaques Chirac in 2000. That is a very long time ago considering the two countries harbor such close ties. But the long break has no political significance. After all, the heads of government and ministers of both countries meet regularly every few months.

lack of solvency and credibility of the currency issuer...

The money supply is rising again, and persistent price inflation is not a surprise. Price inflation occurs when the amount of currency increases significantly above private sector demand. For investors, the worst decision in this environment of monetary destruction is to invest in sovereign bonds and keep cash. The government’s destruction of the purchasing power of the currency is a policy, not a coincidence.

Readers ask me why the government would be interested in eroding the purchasing power of the currency they issue. It is remarkably simple.
