Whenever Hong Kong protesters are destroying public property, there are no cameras of Western media outlets in sight. But when police decide to intervene, protecting their city, Western media crusaders emerge in full force. On Sunday, huge US flags were waving in the air. A massive demonstration, consisting of mainly young people, was moving up from the old British-built downtown area of the city towards the US Consulate General, often erroneously called the “embassy.”

In an article titled "The India Dividend: New Delhi Remains Washington`s Best Hope in Asia," which was published in the September/October edition of Foreign Affairs magazine, authors Robert D. Blackwill, a Henry A. Kissinger senior fellow for US foreign policy at the Council on Foreign Relations, and Ashley J. Tellis, senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, noted that for the US-Indian partnership to bear fruit, both sides must recognize that their primary shared interest is to balance a rising China - and not expect a close alliance or alignment on all major policy issues.

China`s foreign exchange reserves rose by $3.5 billion in August to $3.1072 trillion. Economists polled by Reuters had expected that reserves would fall from July. The increase in August suggested China is doing better than expected at hedging against financial risks.

Joining me today is Luke Rudkowski from We Are Change, one of the few journalists left today still willing get out there on the ground, putting himself in danger, to cover the stories that would have otherwise been consumed only with mainstream media regurgitated government taking points.

Hong Kong`s Chief Executive Carrie Lam told a group of businesspeople last week that she has caused "unforgivable havoc" by igniting the anti-government protests gripping the city - and that she would quit if she could.

The recent protests in Hong Kong started when Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam proposed to amend the law to allow the extradition of criminals to the Chinese mainland after a Chinese girl was brutally murdered by her Hong Kong boyfriend. The murderer was jailed by the Hong Kong government on other offences and is due to be released in October. That is an intolerable situation for the family of the murdered girl and it is also intolerable for Beijing.
Would the British government accept it if a British citizen could be murdered in Gibraltar and the murderer could not be extradited to Britain for trial?

After devastating the Middle East through sanctions, warfare, and the backing of extremists to fight proxy wars, the Indo-Pacific region – not the Middle East – is now the Pentagon’s “priority” region.

The protests, as originally started in June, were against a law that would have allowed criminal extraditions to Taiwan, Macao and mainland China. The law was retracted and the large protests have since died down. What is left are a few thousand students who, as advertised in a New York Times op-ed, intentionally seek to provoke the police with "marginal violence"

Daring Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India, has killed a sacred cow, called Article 370 of the Constitution, enshrining the autonomy of Kashmir. The consequences could be dire, including the fourth India-Pakistan war, but not necessarily so. It could also be a successful scheme. Apparently, Narendra Modi had been encouraged by his success in recent elections, by his decent relations with the three powerful men of our age, Trump, Putin and Netanyahu; and by the rearmament and modernisation of India’s armed forces.

Joseph Thomas - Nations running afoul of US and European hegemony often find themselves the target of concerted, long-term propaganda campaigns. Without creating a media front capable of confronting this propaganda, virtually nothing a targeted nation does can improve its image among the global public, because no matter what it does, it will be ‘spun’ by the US and European media to smear it. A pertinent example can be found in Southeast Asia’s Kingdom of Thailand which possesses the second largest economy in ASEAN and has become one of Beijing’s most important partners in the region. Because of this, it has become a target for US and European political subversion in the hopes of installing a government that can reverse this trend.

Andre Vltchek - Most of the people in the West or in North Asia usually never think about it, but Southeast Asia is one of the most depressed and depressing parts of the world. It has been through genocides, wars and atrocious military regimes. Then, those monstrous income disparities. According to The Bangkok Post, in 2018:...All this, despite the fact that in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and elsewhere, Chinese people were often treated like animals, killed and raped in pogroms, and kept away from the governments. This extension of the hand is called “BRI” – “The Belt and Road Initiative.”

There are stories that are unrelated to the news, but can explain much better than many combat reports, why people like me are fighting against the Empire and imperialism, with such determination and vehemence. Not all stories are ‘big’ or ‘heroic’; not all include famous people or iconic struggles. Not all take place on battlefields.
But they ‘humanize’ the struggle. Once in a while, I like to share such stories with my readers. As I will do right now. Because without them, frankly, nothing really makes sense.
