Bulgarian far-right to shut down largest human rights NGO in Bulgaria

“Why don’t they defend those who get robbed? Why are they only defending those that have trouble with the police? Why are they defending minorities? Do you know how many policemen are being investigated because of them?”

This is what you hear when the Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister, Krasimir Karakachanov and others speak about the human rights organisation, The Bulgarian Helsinki Committee. It is the largest and oldest human rights organisation in Bulgaria.

And now it is…

Trump’s support for Erdogan’s plans in Syria gives the green light to potential Turkish genocide of the Kurds

When the Turks are “just passing through” a territory, sometimes they stay 500 years. Just ask the Bulgarians, who spent 500 years under violent Ottoman rule. And let’s not forget the Turkish genocide against the Armenians in the First World War that the Turkish state continues to vehemently deny to this day.

That’s why when I heard the news that US president Donald Trump had let Turkey’s Erdogan enter the Kurdish parts of northern Syria, I was deeply concerned. This is genuinely…

The Truth of 2.77 Acre Land (Part-1)

The truth of 2.77 acre land and birth place of Ram Lala Virajman lies beneath the surface of site and is as old as the human civilization. People first debate whether the existence of lord Rama is true or he was mere a mythological character about whom you can read in books like ‘Ramayana’ and Ramcharit Manas. Whether Concept of ‘Incarnation and Reincarnation’ itself is true, is defined in different ways in different religions. If religions like ‘Islam’ does not believe in Incarnation and…

#Cyberpeacefare #I Am That I Am"

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…

EU diplomacy with Erdogan should seek the Bulgarian channel

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…

The Kurds decision, foreign policy key to Trump’s impeachment

If there is one thing that Donald Trump does not need exactly at this point in the impeachment inquiry is to alienate US Republican Senators.

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…

What it means to be an educated person?

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…

Tom Parker, author of "Avoiding the Terrorist Trap," discusses privacy, surveillance, and more in the context of counterterrorism.

A Parting of Values: America First versus Transactionalism

"The existing divide in American foreign policy discourse has been the extent to which the U.S. must actively propagate and spread its values, or defend them or promote them even when there is no interest at stake," writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. How does American civil society demand consideration of moral and ethical concerns in the decisions both to go to war and how the war will be prosecuted?

Suleimani Is Dead, but Diplomacy Shouldn’t Be

Carnegie Council fellow and Pacific Delegate Philip Caruso advocates for the value of diplomacy in the aftermath of the U.S. killing Iran's general Qassem Suleimani. "Iran cannot win a war against the United States, nor can the United States afford to fight one," he argues.
