Hot air about the Falkland Islands reaches the UN

John J. Metzler UNITED NATIONS — The Falkland Island Road Show has come to the United Nations, with all the political trappings of drama, hyper-nationalism, and self-righteous moralizing.

Special to WorldTribune.com By Gregory Copley, Global Information System It would be a mistake to think that the Western economic crisis is being managed toward a successful conclusion; that perhaps it can escape from disaster.

Technology secrets, highly-valued by slave masters, are more precious for the free

Lev Navrozov Before the 1917 revolution in Russia and for a while after it, no one paid attention to the meaning of the words involved, though the meanings of words are decisive in the brain work — in thinking and its conclusions, incarnated in the words of the language of a given nation.

Britain’s Royal Jubilee — It’s about tradition not celebrity

John J. Metzler UNITED NATIONS — The world needs a good party and reason to forget, even fleetingly, the conflicts, crises and economic doldrums which have befallen us.

China demonstrating the will to dominate; West losing the will to resist

Lev Navrozov From Moscow, the capital of the slave country founded in 1917, I came to New York, to the 21st floor of a skyscraper.
