A War Crime, nothing else

From my Writing RoomCopyright © 2021 by Uwe Bahr First, they made the world believe to have successfully killed ISIS-K terrorists in the late August drone strike in Kabul. When even they realized that something had gone wrong again, they tried to cover it up as long as possible. This time, German public television was… Continue reading A War Crime, nothing else

Fight Socialism

How American Neo-Liberals lie to their People From my Writing RoomCopyright © 2021 by Uwe Bahr I once wondered why so many US media outlets, in concert with especially right-wing politicians, almost exclusively use the empty phrase “former communist East Germany” whenever the defunct German Democratic Republic (GDR) is mentioned. It’s misleading because it’s historically… Continue reading Fight Socialism

Biden’s Egg Dance over 9/11

The God Who Told an American President to Start Two Wars From my Writing RoomCopyright © 2021 by Uwe Bahr The American President is once again on a course of appeasement. Family members and victim’s representatives do not want Joe Biden to speak on-site on the imminent 20th anniversary of the terror attacks on the… Continue reading Biden’s Egg Dance over 9/11

An Almost Collective Failure

From my Writing RoomCopyright © 2021 by Uwe Bahr Once again the compassionate, everything and everyone understanding citizen of the world spoke to his people. The American president’s pithy remarks yesterday are surprising, because just a few days ago he sounded quite different. But it is he who is largely responsible for the chaos at… Continue reading An Almost Collective Failure

Change Starts in the Head

From my Writing RoomCopyright © 2021 by Uwe Bahr As expected, the USA is now tearing itself apart in recriminations over Afghanistan. While many Republicans are trying to whitewash history with their own version of “alternative facts”, Joe Biden is in some ways the executor of Trump’s policy, who engineered the crucial withdrawal from Afghanistan.… Continue reading Change Starts in the Head

“We will hunt them down, we will smoke them out”

President Bush’s War on Terror ends in Disaster for the entire West From my Writing RoomCopyright © 2021 by Uwe Bahr For twenty years, international troops under U.S. leadership were in Afghanistan with the goal of providing peace and security, including their very own ideas of democracy. Now, the Taliban are closing in on Kabul.… Continue reading “We will hunt them down, we will smoke them out”
