I am that I am.I
I am a believer in the power of ideas and the personal cyber power(pcp) of individuals "for good as well as evil" on the world-wide web/social media, e.g., cyberpeacefare/cyberwarfare.
I am a preacher that National Security in the current multi-power-multi-domain competitive age requires citizen participation and support for peace, as well as war; especially, when considering the 5th cyber domain of warfare (land, sea, air, space cyber); "World Peace and…Continue

If the EU wants to be heard by Turkey in the current crisis with the Kurds in Syria, the EU will be smart to work through the diplomatic channel that the Bulgarian government and its Prime Minister Boyko Borissov have established with Turkish President Erdogan.
Last week, the Turkish President told the EU to “wake up” threatening to send 3.6 mln refugees towards Europe if the EU called Turkey’s actions in Syria an invasion. The EU did not remain silent, and Donald Tusk responded…Continue

But giving way to Turkey's President Erdogan and dropping the Kurds might cost Trump the impeachment battle.
Here, Trump simply miscalculated. His move to “bring the troops back home” from Syria by dumping the Kurds backfired…Continue

I like this thought: "Only educated are free". (Epictetus)
Education is not about indocrination or unification of thinking.
Education opens our minds, forces us to search for truth, work with different ideas critically.
I think that an educated person is free from prejudices and imposed…
Is the world about to witness a paradigm shift from Unipolarity to Polycentricity?
In 2014, the European Strategy for Policy Analysis System (ESPAS) predicted a shift from Unipolarity to Polycentricity by 2030. By implication, from a strategic perspective, the United States will lose its hegemonic status.
However, this geopolitical projection provided by the ESPAS report has been vehemently critiqued by Micaiah Kalu in his latest article entitled "Global Trends and the…Continue

I started my path in the international development field during my first year of university, working as an intern at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Venezuela. My experience alongside Colombian refugees in my country opened my eyes to the stark reality of displacement and war. Ironically, my country faces a similar situation nowadays. Venezuelans represent the highest rate of migrants and refugees in the Americas. More than 4 million have left the country since 2016; an…Continue

Not only this…Continue

On the European continent, the modern Romanian state is the posterchild for undercutting pressures in civilizational tectonics, a picture that Samuel P. Huntington so hauntingly laid out in his post-Cold war portrayal of the “clash of civilizations” thesis.
