Why should we care about Crimea?

Beyond the question of what exactly the Western powers expect of Russia and how likely it is that Russia will meet those expectations there is a more fundamental question that should be asked.

US foreign policy and Ukraine

The US might form its policy around building and maintaining multilateral commitment to prevent, diffuse and contain conflicts, using its sense of right and wrong as the basis of a proactive and consistent diplomacy informed by local realities, sensitive to the interests, values and motivations of others and backed up when necessary by the credible threat of force exercised through the UN. …

When Cutting Profits Makes Sense

Matt Miguelena worked at Healthcare Corporation of America (HCA), one of America’s largest healthcare companies, for nearly two decades before opting out to set up his own venture. Disillusioned with the increasing monetization of healthcare, in 2007 he created Allied Healthcare Professionals, a home health agency in California that focuses on doing healthcare “the old-school way,” he says.  

It’s a for-profit enterprise that’s as concerned about social impact as it is…

I show here some pf my photos from my Iran trip, I outline why the present Western policies on Iran are counterproductive and, third, what must be done instead.
