The first 100 days

April 25th, 2017 No comments

​OK, the first hundred days of Mr. Trumps president ship is nearing its conclusion.  I think we can handily conclude, that we, the Democrats are basically still very much in the game.  The things we do not agree with, are not going through congress, but at the points we do agree, things are going forward.  […]

The difficulty of virtue

April 24th, 2017 No comments

​I am reading an interesting philosophical treaties by Plato. You know the Athenian who roamed the world 2500 years ago.  In this specific treaties, he discusses the development of a nation or a polis. The sophist of his discourse claims, that it is possible to teach virtue, and by doing that, create the basis of […]

Peace

April 24th, 2017 No comments

​OK Mr. Kushner, I have tried to relay you some of the things you need to think about, if you want to work in the Middle East with peace. Again.  1. Think out of the box, to continue the endless Palestinian talks is a waste of time. 2. Understand the peoples of the Middle East. […]

The philosopher kings

To understand how you become a true leader of Israel and thereby have a chance to further the goals and the wellbeing of jews, we need to look at the stars of Israel. First of all of cause Shimon Peres, the greatest star of Israel and one of the founding fathers. There were others in […]

The Middle East

April 22nd, 2017 No comments

​The Middle East is not an easy place to do politics, especially not if you are from the West. Let us face it. When the Babylonians invented the wheel and writing, we were still living in long houses fighting all the time.  We smashed the beautiful Middle eastern cultures as the Hittite and the Homeric.  […]

Strategies

April 21st, 2017 No comments

​These beginnings of presidentships are really difficult, so much to convey and so much at stake. I do not prescribe anything, but I do try to make the shift from one presidentship as smooth as possible.  Now, there are basically two guys that are interested in the international politics in the Trump administration, as far […]

Ideas

April 20th, 2017 No comments

​Listen, I have given the whole international strategy quite some thought. The funny thing is Donald, when you started out, you had all the right priorities. You pushed NATO, you wanted to be friends with Mr. Putin, you wanted to fight China and ISIS.  These were also my priorities. Why, because it is pretty obvious […]

The two fights

April 19th, 2017 No comments

​Well now it has been a few months of Mr. Trumps presidentship. I realise, that I have been quite demanding, and I am sorry, but there is so much at stake, and so little room for error.  I am not a president, I am not a leader of a country. I am an intellectual, and […]

Strategy

April 17th, 2017 No comments

Ok Donald, now your first strike of foreign policy choices have been made.  To be honest, I am not that impressed with the strategic choices, but I do like the tempo.  First of all, strategy in business and in warfare hold some of the same components. You worry about your resources, you make a plan […]

What did we actually do?

April 15th, 2017 No comments

Looking at the Middle East now after mr. Barack Obama and I have left it, it might seem a little bewildering what we were up to.  I mean, we tried to make peace with Iran, we supported the Arab states at the same time, and tried to find peace with mr. Putin as well.  Most […]

Middle East

April 13th, 2017 No comments

Well, I know that mr. Trump sees the Middle East as a mess. Well, it has been a mess for the last 5000 years, ever since the first city of Eridu (Eden) was founded, then over all the fightings between the Assyrians and the Egyptians, the Hittitie (Iranians) the Babylonian (Iraqi), Jews, Christian, sea peoples, […]

The burning light of democracy

April 12th, 2017 No comments

I have reflected a little on all the work mr. Obama and I have done in the international theatre of war, and where that leads to you mr. Trump. First of all, international politics is very difficult, especially in a world where we are not progressing, but trying to stop the downfall.  It requires a […]

Brilliance

April 11th, 2017 No comments

To understand what is really happening in the West, please let me take you back to a time when things actually did work.  A time that is almost forgotten today, but it actually made a lot of the present day administration.  The time was at the time of the sun king Louis XVI. He inherited […]

Post Brexit hangover

April 11th, 2017 No comments

Here after Brexit, the hangover, intellectually, have, more or less, gone, and it is time for a new discussion on what comes next.  First of all, the networks of business that the UK has access to are huge, so what is really the problem. The Anglosphere is huge, and plenty of people to do business […]
