SERBIA: GETTING IN BED WITH A DEVIL FOR A SONG

Rio Tinto has been waging war on nature for a century and a half If one were to describe succinctly what kind of business Rio Tinto is in, it would be DESTRUCTION OF NATURE. War on people, war on animals, war on trees and shrubs. Why? So Rio Tinto would turn a profit off the minerals they dig up – copper, silver, gold, diamonds, uranium… and now the almighty LITHIUM. Nature be damned. And now, Serbia is offering its Jadar region as the next rape victim.

AN AMERICAN FROM SERBIA: “THOSE WHO DO NOT LEARN FROM HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT”

AN AMERICAN FROM SERBIA: "THOSE WHO DO NOT LEARN FROM HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT" WILL NOTHING EVER CHANGE IN SERBIA? (for the better) So the Serbian cauldron is boiling again. People are in the streets protesting against the regime, and the police and government goons are beating them again. Just as happened in 1968 when the Belgrade students rose up against the communist dictator #1 (Tito). And again in 1996 when the Belgrade students and others marched against the communist dictator #2 (Milosevic). Only this time, the young and the old are united in their protests against the Vučić regime and his Serbian Progressive Party.

NEW YORK TIMES’ “LIBERAL” BIAS RECONFIRMED

HOW DID THE POOR HAITIAN MIGRANTS GET TO DEL RIO, TEXAS? WHO ORGANIZED AND PAID FOR THEIR TREACHEROUS 2,000-3,000-MILE JOURNEY? The New York Times once proudly displayed a tagline “all the truth that’s fit to print.” That went by the wayside a long time ago. Now the appropriate tagline should be “all the truth that fits our opinions.” This story is just the latest example.

AN AMERICAN IN SERBIA: WHAT LIVING IN BELGRADE IS LIKE AFTER 50+ YEARS IN AMERICA

Three years ago, I arrived in Serbia. The idea was to see what living in my native city for about six months would be like after spending half a century in America. Well, the best laid plans of mice and men… Three months after my arrival, a temporary living arrangement became a permanent wedlock. I married my landlady. I grew a beard. I still wear it. I lost some weight. Healthier food and lifestyle, I suppose. Those were some of the good things. The rest… well, it was a culture shock. So much rudeness. So much senseless bureaucracy. So much unnecessary regulation. So much intolerance. Now we have been back in Belgrade for a fourth summer/fall in a row. I’ve already shared with you a number of stories which document the progression of Serbia into a police state and an economy driven by washed up drug and human trafficking money. And slowed down by nonsensical regulation. Now I want to share with you some of the good sides of the Serbian capital – Belgrade. Such as its beautiful location at the confluence of two big European rivers – the Danube and Sava.

SERBIA: THE MOST RECKLESS COUNTRY

of the highest vaccinated countries in the world. Now Covid is raging in Serbia while vaccinations seem to have slowed. As a result, Serbia is now the worst country in terms of the anti-vaxxer index. What makes Serbia the worst country? First and foremost, recklessness and ignorance of the anti-vaxxers. But there's also a possibility that the Chinese vaccines, which are the most prevalent in Serbia, may not be as effective as the American Pfizer or Moderna ISRAEL PUZZLE: A HIGHLY VACCINATED COUNTRY WITH HIGH COVID INFECTIONS

9/11 – 20 YEARS ON

MISERABLE FAILURE AND TERRIBLE COSTS OF "WAR ON TERROR" The US "war on terror" has cost the taxpayers some $5.8 trillion, not counting the cost of hundreds of thousands of lost lives. What else could have the US government achieved had it spent it on peaceful purposes.

AFGHANISTAN: A DON QUIXOTIC WAR ENDS IN AMERICAN DEFEAT

TALIBAN CELEBRATIONS, REPRISALS FOLLOW DEPARTURE OF LAST U.S. PLANE The last U.S. plane left Afghanistan late Monday, ending a 20-year occupation that began shortly after Al Qaeda’s attacks on 9/11, cost over $2 trillion, took more than 170,000 lives and ultimately ended in shameful defeat, leaving behind thousands of Americans and allies to the mercy …
