the news with theory, analysis, and interpretation

The Latvian embassy emailed me and cancelled the scheduled interview with their ambassador an interview that had been planned for 2 months

It looks like I will soon be interviewing the Brazilian ambassador to the United States so the information war which is now under way is getting pretty intense more intense by the day

Last month on May 10 WAM worldaffairsmonthly.com in the 24 hr period had 102 countries visiting the web site according to Google Analytics so the information war is now very intense

I have just been told by the EU not to say that I will soon be interviewing the ambassador of the European Union to the United States we will see if I do talk to him

The Czech ambassador in Washington has agreed to talk to me again so there will soon be another interview with him published here I like him he has been very impressive and honest

WAM media: worldaffairsmonthly.com monitoringrisk.com destructivecapital.com bottleneckanimal.com informationtechcenter.com

WAM media started with 1 web site worldaffairsmonthly.com but 20 years later I have broadened its power to include 4 more web sites

WAM media [World Affairs Monthly] got started in 2002 and in Jan 2003 I presented audio and video files years before the incompetent Ashkenazi media in the United States

It is always difficult to say what is going on in the world but this is my job and this is something we all must consider and understand and analyze

Vladimir Putin and his advisors shrewdly calculated Russia's income from its vast reserves of crude oil & other valuable natural resources would be the critical support for military incursions

The destruction of Ukraine appears to be taking place now at a pretty steady pace and I expect the Russian military incursion to be pretty much indefinite

There is the question of escalation in Ukraine as the Russians will likely not tolerate much intervention there or efforts to stop them from reacquiring Ukraine

It appears the Pakistani state is going to find it difficult if not impossible to service its external debt I will have to look into this and get the facts but this appears to be the case

Imran Khan the Pakistani cricket player who was just removed as prime minister of Pakistan did preside over the rapid accumulation of debt this is why he was removed

It is very likely the Russians are using military force to get back control of Ukraine so they can prepare a larger military incursion into Turkey and then go further south to Arabian oil

1945-2022 you could argue that the Pale of Settlement having moved to the Western Hemisphere has had ample resources to fully build out but now this is ending, the build out

I have keen interest in interviewing the Taliban leaders but of course they do not speak fluent English so perhaps I will focus on their spokesman Mr Suhail Shaheen

I know it is difficult for most to admit but the fundamental problem as I have been saying for a long time is that the USA is run by criminals

Discussing reality is very dangerous & the Ashkenazi Jews who control the United States do everything they can to suppress free speech but now WAM is leading the information war this is very exciting

It is shocking I know but it is likely that the war in Ukraine will escalate and there will be monstrous destruction of much of Ukraine and nothing can really be done to avoid this

A Rational, Scientific, and Practical Approach to Journalism

May 10, 2022

It has been about 40 years since I've been doing this kind of work, it's pretty bizarre work. It's called journalism but it is better and more accurate to call it the information business. The information/knowledge business. Very powerful, potentially very powerful – if you know what you are doing. And that's the thing, hardly anyone can claim to know what they are doing, it's that challenging and difficult.

You make arguments. You construct arguments, you conceive theory. “Scientific theory” etc. All rational stuff. You become fluent in history. Solicit interviews, collect facts, information. Do you form opinions? Obviously you do, and you hope they are not loser, disreputable opinions. You aim to impress people, earn their respect, and actually predict future events. Are you an advocate? No. Not at all. You argue, you actually do commit yourself to the truth – whatever the truth is.

One thing is inadvisable: you do not insult the people you are investigating and discussing. This is obvious, right? I had wanted to interview Osama Bin Laden. My friend Robert Fisk [who died in 2020] beat me to it, well he was working for a real newspaper, a prominent British newspaper. He had several advantages over me at the time but I was fast on his trail. The Sunni Arabs, the young men, they respected me and liked me. I wanted to develop the Sunni Arab story, and I did. I cultivated the Sunni Arabs, I worked on getting an interview with Mr Saddam Hussein – and I came very close to achieving that. What stopped me? The US military invades Iraq in 2003 and kills Saddam Hussein and hundreds of thousands of Sunni Arabs during the “war on terror” – all this kind of Ashkenazi Jewish conspiracy and bullshit.

In 1999 I published with a “think tank” in the Washington DC metropolitan area an article or monograph which had the title The Logic of the Arab-Israeli Conflict. It was pretty darn good [I will republish it here soon, both in English and Arabic], so good that the Arabs wanted to translate it which they did. Then it was published in Arabic. Circulated widely. They wanted me on Al Jazeera and of course I agreed. I was interviewed in January 2001 for 1.5 hours on one of their programs reserved for Arab VIPs, heads of state etc. Mr Ali Abdullah Saleh [the president of Yemen] was on the program before me, the week before, or the month before. He was assassinated in Yemen in 2017.

Very rational approach, very scientific approach – and it has to be grounded in the idea that this has to happen, you have to be practical and absorb and overcome the challenges and difficulties.

Yet there is something else at work in journalism, in the information business. It is the reality of the danger. I have interviewed the founders of Hamas and the Israeli government assassinated them immediately afterward. In fact, I was on the telephone with Dr Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, a co-founder of Hamas, and he was almost killed by a Hellfire missile while I was interviewing him. Yeah, while we were talking. The missile killed some Palestinians nearby him. He told me we had to interrupt the interview and reschedule. We scheduled another talk, and he was killed very soon after, by a Hellfire missile. These three men were killed because of me, because I was interveiwing them. 

In 2003 I had organized an interview with Ms Anna Lindh, who was at the time the foreign minister of Sweden. I had not firmly set up a date and time to call her but I had talked to her spokesman and he agreed that we would set up an interview very soon. About a week later she was stabbed to death in a shopping mall in the center of Stockholm. Seems possible she was assassinated because she had agreed to talk to me – with the recorder on. She was supportive of Palestine.

In 2006 I got an email from some people in Washington who said they were representing Mrs Benazir Bhutto, former prime minister of Pakistan, the daughter of Ali Bhutto, also prime minister of Pakistan. I was told she was keen to do an interview with me. I was pleased to hear that, obviously. It was going to be cool. And what happened? We schedule the interview, I wake up that morning, early, because Pakistan is 12 hours ahead of CA time. I learn from someone who did research for me that Mrs Bhutto had been killed. Assassinated. I was upset, and I felt very bad for her. She was a brave woman. Also Ms Lindh. Both very nice ladies, very capable. I cannot be certain of course but it appears that she was killed to prevent me from interviewing her. Always possible and probably very likely. The timing is pretty suspicious. A coincidence?

I could go on, there are more disgusting illustrations of criminality I could share. I will someday put them all down into some kind of memoir or autobiography. Kind of pompous to do that but I suppose I have an obligation to tell the world the truth of what has happened. Do they want to know the truth? Yes they do.

So it is very rewarding to do this work despite the dangers and nightmare challenges. Yeah they are all mostly nightmares. I am not disturbed by them, really. I am not really affected. I do feel horrible for these brave men and women who want to tell the truth or who try to describe some events – whether there is so-called injustice or not.

You connect to the human animal, all of them on the Earth. Some of them are very impressive and many of them are not so impressive but they all have some foundation of support and truth which gives their experience some value. We want to hear from them, for this is the information business. This is the knowledge business. It is awesome, for sure.

The image below is a letter which Al Jazeera addressed to me after my interview in January 2001. They should republish the interview. I have a copy of it, and I will try to convert it to a digital file, and publish it myself.

I forgot to mention one other Arab leader, Moammar Gaddafi. I had cultivated him, and was really on track to getting access to him and interviewing him. He was also killed. No surprise.
