of Paul Buchanan by Jason DordayGeopolitics Opinion: Folly Or Strategic - Why North Korea Played Its Nuke Card - Security and Geopolitics expert, Paul G. Buchanan, writes that the regime led by Kim Jung-Il may be a weird cult of personality for most foreign observers, and it certainly practices some odd insular logics as it approaches the external world, but when it comes to its nuclear weapons program, it is anything but crazy.

    Binoy Kampmark: Funeral Rites For COVID Zero
    It was such a noble public health dream, even if rather hazy to begin with. Run down SARS-CoV-2. Suppress it. Crush it. Or just “flatten the curve”, which could have meant versions of all the above. This created a climate of numerical sensitivity: a few case infections here, a few cases there, would warrant immediate, sharp lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, the closure of all non-vital service outlets...

    Dunne Speaks: 25 Years Of MMP - And The Government Wants To Make It Harder For Small Parties
    This week marks the 25th anniversary of the New Zealand’s first MMP election. Over the last quarter century, the MMP electoral system has led to our Parliament becoming more socially and ethnically diverse, more gender balanced, and to a wider spread of political opinion gaining representation. Or, as one of my former colleagues observed somewhat ruefully at the time, Parliament starting to look a little more like the rest of New Zealand... More>>

    Eric Zuesse: China Says U.S.-China War Is Imminent

    Our Man In Washington: Morrison’s Tour Of Deception

    It was startling and even shocking. Away from the thrust and cut of domestic politics, not to mention noisy discord within his government’s ranks, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison could breathe a sign of relief. Perhaps no one would notice in Washington that Australia remains prehistoric in approaching climate change relative to its counterparts... More>>



    Binoy Kampmark: Melbourne Quake: Shaken, Not Stirred

    It began just after a news interview. Time: a quarter past nine. Morning of September 22, and yet to take a sip from the brewed Turkish coffee, its light thin surface foam inviting. The Australian city of Melbourne in its sixth lockdown, its residents fatigued and ravaged by regulations. Rising COVID-19 numbers, seemingly inexorable... More>>
