WORLD MATTERS: U.S. conservatives poorly served by the Fox News media culture

WORLD MATTERS: U.S. conservatives poorly served by the Fox News media culture

By Uwe Siemon-Netto A nauseating remark by Donald Trump on Fox News about Germany this week made me wonder if today’s American and European conservatives are living on the same planet – assuming for the sake of an argument that this network is the authentic voice of conservatives in the U.S.A.

WORLD MATTERS: Proud, for once, to be a German

WORLD MATTERS: Proud, for once, to be a German

By Uwe Siemon-Netto It’s been more than two years since my last visit to Germany, my native land. This time I traveled home at the height of the Eurozone crisis. I returned to California just before Christmas filled with pride in my compatriots. Don’t get me wrong. I am not particularly proud of the fact […]

WORLD MATTERS: Will Saddam’s WMD be discovered in Syria when Assad falls?

By Uwe Siemon-Netto Ten years after 9/11, one captivating thought keeps crossing my mind: When the Assad tyranny in Syria finally collapses, will George W. Bush be vindicated? Will evidence be found that Saddam Hussein did actually possess mobile bio-weapons labs, and had them driven across the border ahead of allied forces advancing on Baghdad? […]
