OLYMPICS A’BEIJING: CHINA & ASIA RISE IN ATHLETICS

Erle Frayne Argonza Magandang araw! Good day! Is there any other news that brightens up the world better than the latest Olympics games held at Beijing? Amid the world’s running agog in quagmires of hatred and wars, caused largely by demonic minds among the West’s oligarchy, there are still developments that enchant us even as they stir up hope in a planet that had now moved into a new Dark Age. The...

War in Georgia: It had to happen

I was part of a TFF fact-finding mission to Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhasia in 1994, the report of which was “Georgia on Our Minds“. That the August 7 war would happen was predictable, albeit not the exact time. In this article, my time perspective is about 20 years, my space is global and my subject is the underlying conflict, not the war as such. Let me begin, therefore, with the...

Where I stand –

Hi everyone, My previous blog posted on 8 August 2007 has presented the unique process of peace building that Somaliland under taken and also its hybrid existing governance structures, which enabled prevailing peace & stability throughout its territory. It is natural and part of the process to keep reviewing periodically the system and strategies you set at the beginning in order to explore better...

SOROS, EURO-OLIGARCHS BEHIND GEORGIAN ‘DEMOCRACY REVOLUTION’

Erle Frayne Argonza Good morning! Back to our Georgia-Russia peregrinations, we may wonder whether oligarchic operators were behind the so-called ‘revolution’ that toppled former Georgian leader Shevarnadze. I am much aware of the machinations of Anglo-American-European oligarchs in toppling the Marcos regime in the 80s and its replacement by the oligarchic stooge Corazon Aquino. Below is a report...

GEORGIA LEADERS: VASSALS OF ANGLO-EUROPEAN OLIGARCHY

Erle Frayne Argonza It may behoove many folks to conclude that the recent Georgia-Russia conflict was an isolated event that has got to do largely with the localized problem in South Ossetia. Before the folks would make their conclusions and curse Russia to the hilt, they better take note of the facts well, most specially those facts related to the Georgia leadership’s direct connections with the...

Prejudice Nepalese Medias and Anti-Khas Madhesis

Krishna Hari Pushkar There are accusations against Nepalese Media that Khas dominated media and news agencies are still remained prejudiced towards the Madhes and Madhesis people. A justifiable incident has been observed during the sworn program of newly appointed Ministers of Prachanda’s cabinet on 23rd of August, 2008 at President House of Nepal. In that program most of the newly appointed Ministers...

SOROS MANIPULATING WORLD WAR III START UP VIA GEORGIA

Erle Frayne Argonza Just exactly what is the overall purpose of the recent Georgia-Russia conflict within the broad context of the agenda of the global oligarchy? Does it have to do with the broad war that was hatched that will begin in the Middle East, with the oligarchic proxy vassal-states taking sides in the conflict? Was the conflict a mere acid test case by the same elites to assess the offensive...

EURO-OLIGARCHIC OPERATORS BEHIND GEORGIA CONFLICT WITH RUSSIA

Erle Frayne Argonza Good morning! Going back to the recent Georgia-Russia conflict, which is actually a mere dress rehearsal of NATO for its future big war upon the installation of a totalitarian North Atlantic Empire in the near future, the thesis was raised that Georgia had turned itself into a (b) vassal-state of the Anglo-European oligarchy (or ‘global oligarchy’) and (b) was the same elite’s...

EU-BRITISH OLIGARCHS PRACTICE WAR VIA VASSAL GEORGIA

Erle Frayne Argonza The ‘peace arena’ is getting to be fuzzier by the day as armed hostilities are escalating worldwide. The latest among these was that brief full-scale hostilities between Georgia and Russia, hostilities that were directly related to South Ossetia. On the level of appearance, it was a conflict among neighbors Georgia and Russia. However, when one reflects on the added facet of...

ANTHRAX SCARE: SPIN DOCTORS, ROUGE FORCES

Erle Frayne Argonza News came out recently about the suicide by a biodefense researcher who may have something to do with the anthrax scare weeks after the 9/11 event in the USA. I was in the USA at that time, and I witnessed the anxiety and trauma done by that sordid event. My own theory then was that rouge forces within the USA were the ones behind the 9/11. The series of scare tactics and bombing...

Negative Peace

Peace is define as the absence of violence. This is how most people view it. Look at the news below. The context is more on it. In order to fully understand its absence we must try to undersand the context of violence. Therefore what is violence? According to Wikipedia Violence is define as the exertion of force so as to injure or abuse. It is violence oriented. Isnt it? In this case, the Philippine...

MANILA PEACE UPDATE: GOVERNMENT SCRAPS PEACE DEAL WITH MUSLIM REBELS

Erle Frayne Argonza Dreadful night to everyone! What a dreadful way to greet fellows. I just mean to humor you pals a bit. We got too many hostilities going on in the planet today, and so I’m trying to capture the cryptic mien of the moment via a ‘dreadful’ greet. Right here in Manila, the Philippine state finally decided to scrap the MOA with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front or MILF. In the...

IS THE WTO DEAD? WHAT SAYETH THINE PHYSIOCRATS?

Erle Frayne Argonza The World Trade Organization may be dead in the woods. We may need to prepare dirges as a form of respect for this deadwood institution. It isn’t working at all, this idea of global trade regime galvanized as WTO and the GATT before it. Probably the idea of ‘globalization’ as proposed by contemporary thinkers, which concretely incarnated in the institution of the WTO, may...

Security Sector Reform Discussion Network

Security Sector Reform is a relatively new field which has been growing following a realisation that security and development are two sides of the same coin. In this regard, it has been accepted that there can be no sustained development, peace and democracy without security. To share ideas, critique each other’s papers and to collaborate, generally in this field, a discussion network on Security...

FOOD DELIVERY UPDATES IN LIGHT OF NEW MILF-PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT HOSTILITIES

Erle Frayne Argonza Good morning from Manila! Below is a news item regarding UN efforts aimed at helping out in the provision of food for those fleeing residents affected by the latest rounds of conflicts between the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP). Close to 130,000 residents were already displaced by the hostilities that have not even...

MOA BETWEEN GRP & MUSLIM REBELS (MILF)

Erle Frayne Argonza The controversial MOA between the GRP (Philippine government) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which calls for the establishment of a Bangsamoro ancestral dominion or area in Mindanao island, was supposedly signed recently. Detractors were able to delay the signing by petitioning the Supreme Court for a restraining order. Mr. Iqbal, a top official of the rebel group, pronounced...

OBSTACLES TO PEACE PACT BETWEEN PHILIPPINE STATE AND MUSLIM REBELS

Erle Frayne Argonza Allahu Akbar! Here is a news report about the obstacles to peace pact’s signing between the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. The analysis came from a US-based group called the US Institute of Peace. The involvement of US-based groups in GRP talks with insurgents does attract curiosity of sorts. While I have nothing against...

http://www.patrir.ro/doc/Georgia-South_Ossetia-Russia.DPO_Communique.11.08.2008.pdf The crisis in Georgia-South Ossetia has intensified, increasing civilian casualties and the potential for further regional expansion of the conflict. Continuation of the fighting will have negative immediate and long-term consequences for all parties and civilian populations in the region. Immediate steps should be...
