From Marlon Brandon and the Native Americans to Maduro and the fate of Venezuela


From Marlon Brandon and the Native Americans to Maduro and the fate of Venezuela

What an evening. I’ve read some of the most interesting stuff today. From this features BI article about Marlon Brando and his gesture to not attend the Oscars in 1973 for his lead role in ‘The Godfather’, to coverage of Maduro’s Venezuela, I cannot say this has been a boring not for journalism. What do the two have in common? Well, I could’ve posted many other things. In fact, I might have preferred to replace the Maduro section with an article about Bashar al-Assad, president of my country, Syria, which has been in turmoil for about three years now. Syria, like Venezuela, Ukraine, Egypt, and many more, are the modern playing fields of the world’s greatest powers. These are the outlets of the cold war; where the axes meet – East, and West. In many parts of the world, the struggle is imminent. But what struggle? From the Zapatistas of Mexico, to the Palestinian Resistance, what is this universal struggle facing mankind in different areas of his earthly soil? Who are the players in this ‘game’? The Native Americans lost half the earth to Christian Imperialism. Today, Zionism threatens the existence of the Palestinian nation — or what is left of it. Don’t look so far – the effects are spilling over into neighboring regions of the Middle East, from Lebanon to Egypt. The war between good and evil is still going on dear friends. Which side are you on?
