A Look Inside Burma’s Press Freedom, Business and Election – With Aung Thura and Patrick Boehler

This month we were fortunate to host two Asia-based professionals with deep insights into Burma. Yangon-based Aung Thura is a Burmese national and returnee whose guarded optimism about the latest developments in his native homeland underscored the hopeful cheers of a world waiting for true democracy to take hold. Hong Kong expatriate Patrick Boehler provided focused commentary on the political situation and his experience with Burmese refugees in Kuala Lumpur. Both confirmed Southeast Asia is quite possibly one of the most dynamic and interesting regions in the world today.

Nigeria Was Created By The British Not God And Must Be Divided Now

Here we are going to consider the theory of a former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo who believes in the divine creation of the Nigerian state. Of course for a man like Obasanjo and the part he has played in the Nigeria affairs it is not difficult to see how it is easy for him to believe as he does. On the two occasions that he had opportunity to head Nigeria’s government, they were both fortuitous moments, all coming on the heels of the death or assassination of his predecessors.

Our Political Divide on Syria – What Diplomatic Tact Do We Take Now?

Well, the media seems to be bombarding us with Super Tuesday News, but that is hardly all that is going on in the world. Perhaps, the results of Super Tuesday will affect other major events around the globe too, as the US is at crunch time to make a decision what to do in Syria, and that will effect what happens in the future with Iran, especially considering they just had their election, and Russia too, both involved in Syria’s civil war and bloodshed. How we play this will determine human history in the Middle East for the remainder of…

Iran’s Nuclear Program – Do Something or Let Them Have Their Nukes, Talk Is Cheap

It seems unfortunate that our diplomatic policies have not worked in helping Iran come to the correct conclusion that nuclear weapons are not good for that region, or the rest of the planet for that matter. If Iran gets nuclear weapons, then the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and half a dozen other countries are going to immediately want nuclear weapons themselves. Also you can bet that Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, good friends with Ahmadinejad in Iran, will also want nukes.

Are We Close to Negotiation or War with Iran?

Okay so, suffice it to say that whatever we read in the news is probably BS, take a recent set of articles not long ago about the showdown over Iran’s nuclear weapons production. One set of news stories tells a tale of deceit by Iran, and an acceleration of their uranium enrichment according to the IAEA and United Nations. Another, talks about the Iranian Regime telling the world that it will negotiate but that the nuclear program will go on and increase no matter what, and regardless of international media propaganda against them.
