Observing Moon Jae-in win the election on 7 May, take up the presidency of the Republic of Korea and move on to a summit with President Trump has been like watching a movie where the action is put into slow motion to emphasize the inevitability of the disaster to come. The hero may gesticulate but […]

With the eviction of Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka from the inner precincts of the White House and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson besieged and taking fire from virtually all sides, neoconservatives – even the NeverTrumpers among them – must be quietly harboring renewed hopes that their restoration may soon be within reach. And, as […]

When politicians are feeling the heat, they start a war and their popularity goes up even if the war is unnecessary or completely ridiculous.

On Monday 21 August 2017 US President Trump made his long awaited statement on future US policy in Afghanistan. There was considerable speculation beforehand that as to whether Trump might announce a US withdrawal.

US President Donald Trump appeared to adopt two very different public persona this week, when first he delivered a stern speech announcing a new military strategy toward Afghanistan; and then the next day he regaled supporters at a rally in Arizona with his characteristic blustering style. American news channel CNN called the differing styles the «Two Trumps». […]

His exit is a win for backers of a more traditional — and interventionist — U.S. foreign policy.

Bannon’s exit clears an obstacle […]

The political opponents of President Trump have found a new lever for sabotaging his presidency – his alleged embrace of white supremacists and Neo-Nazis. He is now being labelled a «sympathizer» of fascists and bringing America’s international image into disrepute. Cue the impeachment proceedings. Notably, the same power-nexus that opposed Trump from the very outset […]

This is a potentially incredible breakthrough in the painful 7 year-long Syrian conflict. As 21WIRE has pointed out previous, aside from Turkey’s key part in facilitating the creation and supply of anti-Syrian terrorist enclaves over the last 7 years, it has also played the central role in the dismantling of Syria’s manufacturing sector centered around […]

The “Russia hacking” flap has nothing to do with Russia and nothing to do with hacking. The story is basically a DNC invention that was concocted to mitigate the political fallout from the nearly 50,000 emails that WikiLeaks planned to publish on July 22, 2016, just 3 days before the Democratic National Convention. That’s what […]

Everybody with a clear mind is up in arms about the US Congress’ latest sanctions against Russia – and as usual – sanctions for naught- zilch, zero – since Russia hasn’t done any of the things Washington and the servile west accuses her of, like interference in US elections (US secret services have repeatedly said […]

The crazed, racist, stupid, boorish man in the White House “this summer defied the War Party and its corporate media mouthpieces, negotiating a cease-fire with the Russians in several regions of Syria, and possibly ending the CIA’s not-so-covert role as Grandmaster of Islamic Jihad.” Which makes him less dangerous to the human species than Barack […]

The criminalization of political speech and activism against Israel has become one of the gravest threats to free speech in the west.

In the U.S., governors […]

[The 4th Media’s editorial note: The author presents essentially a far better analytical overview than many others, with a very constructive recommendation to “End the Korean War,” on the Korea question in general, the DPRK’s nuclear threat over against North American continent in particular. However, the facts the author used for his following (seemingly controversial and incorrect) […]
