A Crisis Of Opposing Values In America

By By Bill Collier- The American political state is poised to potentially progress into a new era of tolerance or to roll back the clock of civilization to barbarism, depending on your view of the issue of gay marriage. As the US Supreme Court weighs the merits of a claim that allowing two people of the same sex to get married, the society itself is undergoing a crisis of opposing values that many feel will define what kind of society the political state will favor: a Christian society rooted in ancient traditions and values or a purely secular society that some fear will negatively sanction those traditions and values and that others believe will be enlightened and tolerant.

Salafist Forces Square Off In Iraq

The sidelining of the more moderate Sunni tribes, who are not Salafist, by the Iraqi government has taken sinister form as Sunni leaders now accuse Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi of deliberately letting Ramadi fall to the Sunni Salafist “Islamic State” in order to justify sending in the Iranian backed Shia Salafist militia groups under the Shia Salafist bannder of the Hashid Shaabi, or “Popular Mobilization Forces.” Continue reading Salafist Forces Square Off In Iraq

Cyber Terrorism- The Next Frontier In Lateral Warfare

By Mr Bill Collier- When most people think of cyber terrorism they imagine attacks that cripple infastructure or undermine financial markets. But just as terrorism in the flesh is going from mass scale to individual scale, with lone wolf attacks, the future of lateral warfare will involve using cyber warfare techniques to terrorize and destroy individuals. This kind of cyber warfare will be conducted by lone individuals, steeped in hacking skills, who randomly pick targets to virtually destroy, and most governments are too busy playing defense to prevent this from happening.

Salafist fighters in Yemen- could these fighters be coming to the US?

By Mr Bill Collier- ISIS claims it has 71 fighters in the USA distributed in 15 states but names only Michigan, Maryland, Virginia, Illinois, and California. The two suspected ISIS fighters killed during the attempted Garland, TX attack against a “free speech event” led by Geert Wilders and Pam Geller may be typical of the kinds of attacks planned. But security and terrorism experts are increasingly worried about what they describe as the presently open borders between the USA and Canada and the USA and Mexico. But are allegedly open borders the biggest threat?

Nepal Will Have To Wait For Outside Help


William R Collier Jr- The country of Nepal, where Mount Everest is located, has suffered a massive earthquake so large that loss of life has been reported also in norther India and eveen Bangladesh. The massive 7.9 quake, centered some 50 miles north of Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital, has led to building collapses, larges cracks and holes in the earth, and such violent shaking that scores are now feared dead. Owing to its isolated location, Nepal will have to wait for outside help to arrive for some time.

The Secret Source For Iran’s Nuclear Program

William R Collier JR- The ability to efficiently find, mine, and process uranium for nuclear fuel is a feat of technical know-how that few governments possess. While Russia has access to all the uranium it can use from Kazakhstan, their technical know-how has always lagged behind the West. As the chief supplier of semi-processed uranium to Iran, Russia had, prior to 2013, little access to the highest technology and latest techniques for finding, mining, and process uranium. That has changed and Iran has a new secret weapon in its nuclear program.

How Will Nigeria’s New President Govern?

By Bill Collier- The winner of the March 31, 2015 Presidential election in Nigeria was Muhammed Buhari, a 72 year old former President who, while a coup participant in 1966 and 1975 and a coup leader in 1983, claims to have become “a convert to democracy.” His last stint as President, from 1983 to 1985, was as a direct result of a military coup, not an election.
