Biden Administration Seeking to Provoke China to War

Eric Zuesse The United States now routinely violates a fundamental agreement that had been reached between Russia and the U.S. at the Yalta Conference in February 1945. FDR and Stalin agreed together that though every major power has a right to intervene in the internal affairs of other nations in its “neighborhood” insofar as is…

Report: China Blocking India’s Campaign for a Permanent U.N. Security Council Seat

China is the “biggest stumbling block” for India in its bid to win a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), the Hindustan Times reported Thursday. As a permanent member of the UNSC, China has the power to veto any resolution put forth by the council, including those seeking to expand its membership. China…

How Exceptional America Is

How Exceptional America Is Eric Zuesse, originally posted at Strategic Culture America is becoming exceptionally exceptional. In some votes at the U.N. General Assembly — the Assembly of nations — only Israel,  or one or two other U.S. allies, vote along with it, and all others either vote against it, or else abstain in order…

The Irrelevant U.N.

Eric Zuesse, originally posted at Strategic Culture The U.N. that exists today is not the one that had been intended. Today’s U.N. is just an international PR forum for nations. Part of that PR is the organization’s numerous ‘humanitarian’ operations, which concern what’s happening to suffering groups within nations, more than they actually concern the…

Amid Global Rush to Discover Vaccine, W.H.O. Chief Says No ‘Silver Bullet’ for Coronavirus 

The head of the China-influenced World Health Organization (W.H.O.) argued on Monday, amid the rush to discover an effective vaccine against the coronavirus in the U.S. and beyond, that there may never be a “silver bullet” for the lethal and contagious disease. “We all hope to have a number of effective vaccines that can help…

Why U.S. Must Be Prosecuted for Its War Crimes Against Iraq

Eric Zuesse, originally posted at The Saker The reason why the U.S. Government must be prosecuted for its war-crimes against Iraq is that they are so horrific and there are so many of them, and international law crumbles until they become prosecuted and severely punished for what they did. We therefore now have internationally a…

Reuters Report: ‘Naive,’ ‘Stubborn’ Director Tedros Adhanom Insisted on Praising China

World Health Organization (W.H.O.) Director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is “shaken” by the U.S. decision to freeze funding for the agency for not doing enough to stem the spread of the coronavirus when it first surfaced in China, Reuters reported Friday. Reuters cited named and unnamed W.H.O. insiders and other officials as the source for its…

Rep. Guy Reschenthaler: China Co-Opts U.S.-Funded Institutions Like WHO

China co-opts U.S.-funded international organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) — an arm of the United Nations (U.N.) — as part of its geopolitical strategy, explained Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA), explaining his legislative proposal to conditionally defund the WHO. On Tuesday, Reschenthaler introduced a resolution to withhold funding from the WHO until the resignation…

The Troubling Decline of International Law

While it is true that rogue states – most notably the USA – have always posed a threat to the rule of international law, I see no serious room to dispute that the development of the corpus of international law, and of the institutions to implement it, was one of the great achievements of the…

The Lies that Are Used for Denying the Legitimacy of Crimea’s Breakaway

Eric Zuesse, originally posted at strategic-culture.org Crimea’s breakaway from Ukraine and rejoining Russia is treated in the U.S.-and-allied world as being justification for the explosive re-emergence in 2014 of America’s Cold War NATO alliance as being a restored war against Russia; and, so, whether or not that ‘justification’ is truthful is the paramount geopolitical issue…
