Some possible precipitating factors are already in place. How the West reacts to them will determine the world’s future.
Oil is the reason for many conflicts, so is the case for the American involvement in the Middle East but not mentioned only are the atrocities.
But atrocities happen in other countries, but there is no American involvement as there is no oil.
Oil the root of all evil.
This is yet another video about the expansion of the American war machine and war propaganda by the Jimmy Dore Show. In this video, he discusses the report that AFRICOM, the part of American High Command responsible for Africa, has decided to put troops back into Somalia after 24 years. The troops are apparently there at the request of the Somalian government, and will be there for training purposes. The article does reveal that American troops have also been deployed several times within that space of 24 years in minor missions, such as scouting for bombing sites.
The US troops are being deployed to help the Somali government against the Islamist group, al-Shabaab. The article states that al-Shabaab, although sharing a similar Islamist ideology with ISIS and al-Qaeda, aren’t actually part of those organisations. Most of the time, they’ve been confined to Somalia. They arose after a long period of…

Just who is telling the truth, is it propaganda on both sides.
In any conflict it is not just the innocent that suffer, but also the truth.
The innocents should be the prime consideration on all sides of any conflict, not the last, as is shown and proven many times.
As well as appearing on Counterpunch’s website, Theodore A. Postol also appeared on RT, and his analysis of the Sarin gas attack in Syria was also covered by Jimmy Dore. Postol is the emeritus professor of Science, Technology and National Security at MIT. He concluded that, contrary to what the American government and Syrian rebels were saying, the poison gas that killed the people of Khan Shaykhun was not dropped as a bomb from a plane, but was released from an improved ground-based weapon, about 12 cm long. Trump and the American media have claimed that the attack was the responsibility of Assad, and launched an attack by Tomohawk missiles on the air force base, from which the attack was supposedly launched, in reprisal.
In this video, Dore savagely critiques the statements of Trump, Sean Spicer and other members of the White House. He makes the point that the American…

Should an employer be allowed to ban an employee from wearing a hijab?
International Women’s Day in many parts of the World this has now gone, while in others there are still some hours left, but Women’s day is every day, it is that today is when there is a specific focus. The March has to go on for every second of every day to ensure that women are recognised the world over and to be ensured their Rights are protected and everywhere they achieve equalisation.
Where there has been progress this progress needs to be maintained and increased further and should not be allowed to regress.
Why are, in many areas of the world, women treated as being subservient to men, is it because the men feel they have to be in control and they cannot or feel they cannot allow women any control because that, they feel, would mean they lose some of their control.
But who decided that men should be in control, it was men who decided they were superior to women and this cannot be allowed to continue. Women and men should be working together and accept that no one is more equal that the other. Until men accept this then the progression of women to gain equality will be hard to achieve, but not impossible.
Gains may be achieved, but these can easily be lost, which could easily arise in America due to the Trump effect.
So women unite and fight for what should be yours.
Each year, we mark the international women’s day to remind us of the continuing struggles of women’s rights and to understand that we have a long way to go. Unfortunately, modernisation has done little to alleviate the saddened plights of women across the world, in particular, the displaced, migrant, elderly, and the disabled women. In some way, there appears to be a disguised continuum of patriarchal authority in both western, developing, and underdeveloped countries.
There are so many issues that are still affecting women, worldwide. From the struggles of attaining women’s rights, birth rights, violence against women, deprived of quality education, honour killings, socioeconomic abuse, forced prostitution, modern-day slavery, forced migration, disabilities, sexual harassment, rape, sexism, and dozens more. The overall sums of these are the discourses on gender inequality. In the majority of workforces, women are not earning the exact benefits and salaries as their male counterparts. Most women…

Were they true Muslims, as I believed Muslims should not consume alcohol.
They would have been from Muslim extraction, but were not true to their religion and should be punished accordingly.

Trump’s unbridled bellicosity is testimony to his psychological frailty and an enervating personal insecurity. The bigger the bully, the weaker his own sense of self and that internal, pathol…

These are indeed very worrying times for there is crime and job losses in all sections of each community and no one section should be vilified more than the others.
Racists are also terrorists, because they wish to bring down the current order for their own ends and that is against democracy.
Trump came to power as one section of the American community felt disillusioned with how they believed they have and are being treated and Trump jumped on this to say what they wished to hear and given them an illusion that he can bring back what they feel they have lost.
But this loss will also have been in all sections of the community, who are also disillusioned.
For Trump to go anywhere near to bring back the assumed losses the current progression in technology will need to be reversed as automation is one big factor, especially on job losses. But in doing so in manufacturing this will increase production costs, which will result in the items being produced to be more expensive, while the rest of the world will be progressing using the new and future technology. American goods will therefore be more expensive to the wider world and the goods will need to be only for the home market.
In the short term this may appear to produce some short term gains, but in the long term it will create an even greater loss, because the industries will be stagnating.
Trump, therefore is using a short term policy or policies to create more wealth for himself and others like him, while they are also creating more wealth outside America.
This is because their interests are global, but Trumps policies within America are not.
This will eventually bring down America, just as terrorism is wishing to do, so can not Trump and his like be also terrorists, so should they themselves not be banned from America.
Here’s another step towards real Fascism by the Trump administration. In this clip from Democracy Now! anchor Amy Goodson and her co-host talk to Andrea Pitzer about yet another policy of Trump’s, which is very close to the Nazi vilification of the Jews. Pitzer is the author of One Long Night: A Global History of Concentration Camps. She and the Democracy Now! team discuss Trump’s proposal to publish official lists of crimes committed in sanctuary cities – those towns where the officials are unwilling to comply with Trump’s deportations of illegal immigrants. They point out that this is exactly what the Nazis did in the pages of their ‘newspapers’ Der Sturmer and Das Neues Volk with the Jews. Der Sturmer had a column called ‘Letterbox’, in which its readers were encouraged to send it stories about crimes committed by Jews. The Nazi life-style magazine, Das Neues Volk, which…
