The impunity with which the US aggresses Hong Kong is insane. Equally or more insane is western media coverage of what is going on in Hong Kong. Not one word on how the incredible “pro-democracy” vote of the rather unimportant District Council Elections was achieved. Of the 18 District Councils...

Good bye, Lebanon, metaphorically and truly.

Good bye to a country which, many believe, actually has already ceased to exist.

Surveillance activities and the law are often at loggerheads.  The former specialises in destroying privacy; the latter, in so far as it might be adequate, sometimes furnishes a means of preserving it.  When it comes to exposing overly-eager surveillance activity, obstacles arise.  Ironically,...
