WW3 fears: Does THIS prove Soviet Union thought nuclear war WOULD happen? WORLD WAR 3 looked more than possible during the height of the Cold War in the Eighties – but could the actions of the Soviet Union prove they were more scared than the US of the possibility of all-out war?

Opinion | What the Trump White House understands about Iran This conflict isn’t about Bolton or Pompeo or any other U.S.official. It’s about the mullahs in Tehran. Both are advising President Trump in the same fashion; both believe and have publicly argued that Iran was, is and will remain a rogue regime as long as theocrats bent on the destruction of Israel and the triumph of its Shiite ideology over Sunni Islam remain in power

The Oligarch Takeover of US media Back in 1983, 50 corporations controlled most of the American media, but by 1992 the number had dropped by half, and by 2000 there were left only 5 corporations wielding totalitarian control over the media. Their control covers all the means for expression of speech and ideas: television, movies, radio, books, music, news feeds. They have each established uncontested monopolies in their respective sectors, with the exception of Apple who controls the mobile phone market in a duopoly with Google’s Android based platforms Available at: https://hbr.org/2019/02/how-big-a-problem-is-it-that-a-few-shareholders-own-stock-in-so-many-competing-companies
