China’s pattern of economic growth is changing. The country is depending more and more on domestic consumption than external demand.

“We have about 50% of the world’s wealth but only 6.3% of its population… In this situation, we cannot fail to be the object of envy and resentment. Our real task in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity without positive detriment to our national security. To do so, we will have to dispense with all sentimentality and day-dreaming; and our attention will

Yesterday, October 8, 2010, the once globally-respected Nobel Peace Award made another serious self-inflicting insult and disgrace to its still, in a sense, honorable name by awarding Mr. Liu Xiaobo, a so-called “Chinese dissident,” the 2010 Nobel Peace Laureate. It did, too, in the past as well by awarding people like Mr. Henry Kissinger the […]

Britamgate: Staging False Flag Attacks in Syria On January 22 a telling leak cropped up in the Internet. British defense contractor’s BRITAM server was hacked and megabytes of classified internal files of the firm werereleased to the public. Now the case is acquiring aBritamgate scale due to the publication on Prison Planet. What is the story behind the leakage? Why this scandal is likely to turn around the situation in Syria? Let’s brief the files.
