Hillary Clinton the destroyer

posted by Harry J. Bentham

I write this hoping Americans will consider carefully who will want them to vote for which 2016 presidential candidate, and why. The people backing up Hillary Clinton are not ordinary Americans, and the people trying to portray her in a positive […]

Stop the War Coalition hypocrisy? I think not

posted by Harry J. Bentham

Quite recently, I tweeted that the Stop the War Coalition is correct to only criticise the wars backed and endorsed by the British government. I was praising an article by John Wight. There is no Stop the War Coalition hypocrisy […]

UK airstrikes in Syria are like sinking sand

posted by Harry J. Bentham

I want to comment a second time about the Syrian conflict in light of reports about a recent stabbing that apparently took place in London. When arguing for illegal unilateral UK airstrikes in Syria, pro-war speakers in Parliament said they believed Britain would be safer […]

Syria and the Third World War?

posted by Harry J. Bentham

Images of a possible Third World War are often invoked by people warning about confrontations between powers like Russia and the US. Usually, we are just being too dramatic by bringing up such images. Most of the time, people are exaggerating. But since […]

ISIL, a gullible plaything of powers

posted by Harry J. Bentham

It is clear that ISIL, rather than being a grand revolutionary force trying to overturn the mistaken conquests like the Iraq War by the US in the Islamic world as it claims, is no Islamic state but a plaything of various other countries. […]

‘Might makes wrong’, makes responsibility

posted by Harry J. Bentham

When it comes to moral and political struggles, the use of ‘might makes right’ as a characterization of the opponent’s view is often used. The claim that might does not make right sounds like a Christian-inspired one. Nietzsche would probably have scoffed at it, […]

UN Security Council inaction is good

posted by Harry J. Bentham

Many political commentators complain about the United Nations Security Council (UNSC)’s inability to solve international crises. And although I am a Jacobin who rarely defends any political institution, I must defend the UN Security Council. The Security Council is a brute force institution, […]

Ahmed deserved to be arrested for being a Muslim?

posted by Harry J. Bentham

Que voulez-vous enseigner avec votre exemple? Qu’il ne faut pas tuer. Et comment enseignez-vous qu’il ne faut pas tuer? En tuant. What do you want to teach with your example? That thou shalt not kill. And how do you teach […]

Should America kill everyone for “democracy” in Syria?

posted by Harry J. Bentham

Nous ne pouvons arracher une seule page de notre vie, mais nous pouvons jeter le livre au feu. We cannot tear a single page from our life, but we can throw the whole book into the fire. Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dupin The […]

The amphitheater of national politics belies hegemony

posted by Harry J. Bentham

On ne voit bien qu’avec le cœur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; What is essential is invisible to the eye. Antoine de Saint Exupéry Even as the negotiations […]

Emaciation, intervention, aggression: Syria

posted by Harry J. Bentham

Au bout d’un ou deux siècles d’exploitation se produit une véritable émaciation du panaroma culturel With one or two centuries of exploitation comes a thorough emaciation of the cultural landscape. Frantz Fanon In considering a new opinion piece for my Press TV column at […]

Hollande’s Syria comments: evil or stupid?

posted by Harry J. Bentham

Bachar al-Assad est l’allié objectif des jihadistes Bashar al-Assad is the de facto ally of the jihadists (fighting to oust him) Francois Hollande Normally, I preface my posts on this blog with something wise from great French politicians and scholars, […]

A state of war

posted by Harry J. Bentham

La vertu est un état de guerre, et que, pour y vivre, on a toujours quelque combat à rendre contre soi. Virtue is a state of war, and to live in it means one always has some battle to wage […]
