    • Africa and the Corrupt UN Security Council

      Africa and the Corrupt UN Security CouncilThe new president of the Philippines Mr. Rodrigo Duterte is not a guy I would personally support. Someone may ask, Why? Well, it is because Duterte is very childish with words and doesn't know how to control his temper. He is worse than America's Donald Trump as far as words are concerned.

    • China and Ejiao: The Donkey Skin Trade

      China and Ejiao: The Donkey Skin TradeTo some Chinese people, “man’s best friend” is what is on the table. “Man’s best friend” to some Chinese people is what is cooked and served. “Man’s best friend” is what brings in money, more money and nothing but money as far as some Chinese people are concerned.

      The Oil Company with an Army: AmericaAmerica is the most hated country in the world and some people (especially some Americans) wonder why? Well, personally, I don’t hate America because I still believe there are some good people living in America today. However, that is not to say I love America.

    • Africa and the International Criminal Court

      Africa and the International Criminal CourtBurundi, Gambia and now South Africa have officially notified the UN Secretary-general of their intentions to leave the International Criminal Court (the ICC) and from the look of things, many other African countries may follow suit. Why are African countries abandoning the ICC? Well, the simple answer is, “fear” and “distrust”. The ICC came on the scene in 1998 as a way to pursue some of the world’s worst atrocities: genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. In other words, the ICC was to...
