And yet as told Radio during the Brazil elections, WhatsApp was used by fascist Bolsonaro campaign with such shocking effectiveness, it's widely assumed foreign intelligence agencies had a hand in it

Mujtaba al-Sweikat, a student slated to attend Western Michigan University, is beheaded in Saudi Arabia. He had been arrested when he was 17 by Saudis in 2012 after taking part in democracy rallies, and tortured while in custody.

What's most surprising about this story is that so many countries have submitted to the US threat. Japan, Italy, South Korea, and even India seem to be bowing before it...

Death toll in Sri Lanka now up to 290. And all quiet on the social-media front. Odd.

A strange, horrible story. Mass-casualty suicide attacks on churches celebrating Easter and hotels in Sri Lanka. As says, there'd been attacks on Buddhist sites by a Tamil/Muslim group, NTJ, & police had predicted church attacks as well...

If you want a good overview of/introduction to Northern Ireland and the IRA's strategy during The Troubles, this episode from is a good place to start. Discussion begins around 10:15 into the show so skip to there

Contacts with Russians :-))))) Here's one that just won't die. All my contacts are, from the other party's point of view, contacts with a Russian. How do I live with that? I don't know anymore.

Recommend this podcast series on the 100 years war and Jeanne d'Arc. One of the most interesting historical characters and most everyone gets her story wrong (except Annibale of course!).

Found a documentary on Candido Lopez's battle paintings from the Triple Alliance or Paraguayan War. Seems OK so far (haven't seen the whole thing), with plenty of closeups of those amazing paintings.

Quite possibly the most amazing story in the history of warfare, if not the whole damn species. RWN 177: Joan of Arc, told by Annibale himself.

Sudan is still going, like one of those slow volcanoes. Interesting that the Transitional Military Council says openly that it's arresting "symbols" of the old regime. We just recorded a great RWN interview with on Sudan...

I’m just a bloke off the telly, but it’s hard to keep quiet about this. 10 million people in Yemen are on the brink of famine, primarily due to the dropping of bombs (sold by the US and UK) and blockade of humanitarian aid by the Saudi coalition. Houthis are not without blame.

Why is it always a magazine called The American Conservative that does these stories best?
