The Nile Basin: Egypt’s Role In Africa’s Development  

by Hussein Askary and Dean Andromidas

Egypt and its neighbors in the Nile Basin are almost completely reliant on the water of the Nile. It is not the availability of a “natural resource” which is the issue, but society’s optimizing of its use, through science and technology, that is the key. These technologies have been available for more than a century in the industrialized world; but Africa has been denied their benefits.

Environmental organizations, NGOs, and financial institutions such as the World Bank and the IMF have been used to stop such development in Africa in recent times, the same way colonial armies were used in the 19th and 20th centuries.

But with the advent of a new, just world economic order, initiated by the BRICS, and the end of the colonial era of racist British and other trans-Atlantic policies against Africa, these nations have a genuine opportunity to rise above the ashes of decades of civil wars and underdevelopment. Part III of a series.

Color Revolution: British Empire Targets China Through Hong Kong  

by Michael Billington

The demonstrations have been carefully scripted by various wings of the Anglo-American “Project Democracy” apparatus, trying to create another “Tiananmen Square” crisis in China.

Ebola Arrives in a U.S. That’s Totally Unprepared  

by Debra Hanania-Freeman

Centers for Disease Control Director Tom Frieden vowed to “stop Ebola in its tracks,” yet the first known case of the disease in the United States was handled with bad policy and outright disinformation. While the U.S. health-care system is of course better equipped than those in West Africa, there are only four sites in the United States cleared to treat patients with the virus.

Obama’s Mideast Fiasco: ‘100% Guaranteed To Fail’  

by Jeffrey Steinberg

While the United States continues a non-stop bombing campaign against Islamic State, the jihadists continue to take more territory. Gen. Anthony Zinni (ret.), former head of the U.S. Central Command, told a Washington audience that the Obama plan for defeating IS is so fatally flawed that it is guaranteed “one hundred percent” to fail.

Richard Dawkins’ Secular Humanism Is Stardust Fascism  

by Benjamin Deniston

Benjamin Deniston of the LaRouche PAC Science Team traces the history of the fraudulently named “humanist” movement, the purpose of which is to destroy actual science. “A particularly disgusting false-science narrative being popularized by the pop science mouthpieces of the British Empire’s ideology is that it is mankind’s elevated self-view that blocks the development of science: that science is held back by the ‘arrogant’ belief that mankind is something different than just a smart ape, a collection of bio-molecules, ultimately governed by a fixed set of mathematical laws of chemistry and physics.”
