Part III-Is Russia a Threat to World Peace?
No matter what Putin's Russia does, it will be viewed as a cold, icy, and heartless lump of land that preys on its neighbors and causes misery to their world. Apply a little warmth, defrost the ice and Russia has another appearance.

Simplified Proposals to Resolve the World Conflagrations
Part 1 - Democratic Republic of North Korea

From Pyongyang to Kabul, Damascus, Sana'a, on to Tripoli and in scattered parts of Asia and Africa, U.S.policies for containing violence have been counterproductive and intensified conflicts.
Part II - Syria
Enable the Syrian government to feed, clothe, and succor its people, and they will stop fighting. What harm if the government survives, if, in the end, it ends the wars, decisively defeats ISIS, and save lives? Is there any other proven and more acceptable choice?

Alternative Insight attempts to be evolutionary and revolutionary. Articles do not become obsolete but are part of an evolutionary process with past articles remaining relevant and their content playing a role into the future. The revolutionary thrust invites novel thinking - reacting to a conventional thought that often proceeds from spurious reports, which lead to conditioning and acceptance of dogma.

Since the end of World War II, United States' foreign policy can be identified by one word: Counterproductive: producing the very result the action was meant to prevent. The failed military action in Vietnam best represent this ongoing policy.

Often starting with false assumptions and spurious facts, policies produced catastrophes and remained unresolved.The incessant wars for "freedom" turned into killing fields. Wars produced wars and counter-terrorism produced more terrorism.

While trying to structure its own world order, the U.S. remains unaware that it is enabling a new world structure, steered by China and other Asian nations This emerging world structure favors Statism, a mix of government controlled and free enterprise policies; a socio-economic system the U.S. rejects and is indirectly nourishing.

Policies, wars, conflicts, and nations who challenge US exceptionalism are examined and discussed. The past remains relevant and serves to predict the future. With it all, a lingering question: Will US foreign policies ever become positive?

The U.S. is headed towards one of two solutions -War cometh before the fall or the Socialization of America.

While the world community debates a two- state or one-state solution for the Middle East crisis, Israel proceeds with its unilateral solution - one-state - a Jewish state.
Clearly described is the evolution of Israel's strategy and the maddening "peace process."

An original Zionism, rejected by the Jewish people seemed outmoded by World War I and became revived by the Balfour Declaration and establishment of the British Mandate.

President Truman reacted too late to the 1948 recognition of Israel. Incessant wars, conducted from pleas of defense and security needs while geared to enlarge Israel and subdue the Palestinians, have led to either completely vanquishing the Palestinians or a resolution by The Course of History.

The Jewish people are caught in a maelstrom that could evolve in its decline and massive destruction to much of the entire world.
