  Opinion: “China’s Chechnya”: Terrorism in Xijiang - by Gwynne Dyer  
14/8/2014
It’s not really “China’s Chechnya” yet, but the insurgency in Xinjiang is growing fast. Incidents of anti-Chinese violence are getting bigger and much more frequent. Since March, 176 people have been killed in six separate attacks on Chinese police and government officials, local collaborators and ordinary Chinese residents of Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region in northwestern China, and the authorities don’t seem to have a clue what to do about it.
  Opinion: The Legacy of the First World War - by Gwynne Dyer  
9/8/2014
“It was not worth even one life,” said Harry Patch shortly before he died in 2009 at the age of 111. He was the last survivor of the 65 million soldiers who fought in the First World War, and by the time he died it was a normal, quite unremarkable thing to say. But he would never have said it in 1914.
  Opinion: On Heroes and Preachers: Gaza’s New Resistance Paradigm - by Ramzy Baroud  
9/8/2014
“Where is the Palestinian Gandhi? In Israeli prison, of course” was the title of an article by Jo Ehrlich published in Modoweiss.net on Dec 21, 2009. That was almost exactly one year after Israel’s concluded a major war against Gaza. The so-called Operation Cast Lead (December 27, 2008 – January 18, 2009) was, till then, the deadliest Israeli attack against the impoverished strip for many years.
  Opinion: License to Kill – Morgan Strong  
1/8/2014
“At Shifa Hospital, a girl who looked about nine yeas old was brought into the emergency room and laid on a gurney, blood soaking the shoulder of her shirt. Motionless and barely alive, she stared at the ceiling, her mouth open. There was no relative with her to give her name. The medical staff stood quietly around her. Every now and then, they checked her vital signs, until it was time. They covered her with a white sheet, and she was gone.

  Opinion: Recruiting to kill - it is not just an Israeli war on Gaza – by Ramzy Baroud  
31/7/2014
To some, US secretary of state John Kerry may have appeared to be a genuine peacemaker as he floated around ideas during a Cairo visit on July 25 about a ceasefire between Israel and resisting Palestinian fighters in Gaza. But behind his measured diplomatic language, there is a truth not even America’s top diplomat can easily hide.
  Opinion: American Spies in Germany: The End of Trust - by Gwynne Dyer  
23/7/2014
The question to bear in mind, when reading this whole sorry tale, is this. If Americans are, on average, no stupider than Germans, then why are their intelligence services so stupid?
  Opinion: Gaza’s Resistance Will Not be Crushed - by Ramzy Baroud  
22/7/2014
On the 13th day of Israel’s so-called Operation Protective Edge, stories of entire families collectively pulverized, women and children keenly targeted by Israeli soldiers saturate the media. Until now, 430 Palestinians have been killed, mostly women and children, and 18 Israel soldiers been killed at the hands of the Resistance. In Shejaiya, elders, mothers and children scrambled for cover as shells mercilessly rained down, stealing the souls of countless innocents.

Opinion: Libyan convicted of Pan Am Flight 103 bombing was innocent – by Gwynne Dyer
Somebody had to be punished or the intelligence services would look incompetent'. They lied, they’re still lying and they’ll go on lying until Libya calms down enough to allow a thorough search of its archives. That’s what intelligence agencies do, and being angry with them for lying is like being angry at a scorpion for stinging.

Opinion: Burma’s Next President - by Gwynne Dyer
Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize winner and champion of Burmese democracy, declared last June that she would run for President in the 2015 election. If she ran, she would surely win: she is to Burma what Nelson Mandela was to South Africa.

Arafat: The Last Visit
Ariel Sharon wanted to expel Arafat from Palestine, but it was decided to isolate him rather than to exile him. The idea of Arafat free to travel, and to attempt to gather international support for the Palestinian cause was considered unwise. Israel relented from their destructive siege, and pulled the tanks and soldiers back under intense American pressure. The US wanted to win Arab and support for the war on Iraq.
