[OP-ED]: La madre de todos los ‘blufs’

 04/19/2017 - 08:02
Afortunadamente, no es solo el pánico lo que se expande, también lo hace la resistencia, que cada día crece y se fortalece. Y eso es muy bueno.

Sí, eso es lo que retórica recalentada de Washington sobre Corea del Norte –a la que el país asiático responde en tonos igualmente belicosos – es en realidad: una sucia guerra de palabras. Pero puede estar seguro de que no están a punto de intercambiarse balas, cohetes, la madre de todas las bombas y mucho menos armas atómicas. Lo cual, por supuesto, es muy bueno.

[OP-ED]: The Mother of All Bluffs

Not only panic is spreading, resistance is also growing by leaps and bounds.EFE

Yes, that’s what the heated rhetoric coming from Washington about North Korea –and being responded to in no less bellicose tones by the Asian country – is: a nasty war of words. Rest assured that no bullets, no rockets, no mother of all bombs, not to mention atomic weapons are about to be fired, dropped or exchanged. Which, of course, is great.

[OP-ED]: Which ‘American workers’ does Trump aim to protect?

 02/07/2017 - 07:26
Demonstrators protest with posters against US President Donald Trump in West Palm Beach (Fl, USA). Amid a day of nationwide protests against US President Donald Trump, some 3,000 people marched today in West Palm Beach, Fla., Where the president will participate in the annual fundraising dance that will celebrate the Cross American Red, who will attend with the first lady, Melania Trump. EFE

Among the flurry of jaw-dropping executive actions we’re trying to keep up with was President Trump’s withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The trade agreement between the U.S. and 11 other Pacific-rim countries was an attempt by the Obama administration to stem China’s growing influence in the region and around the world.
