Poker nucléaire

Si la plus grande partie de poker de tous les temps devait se terminer par une grandiose claque nucléaire, et si les survivants passaient en revue les causes de la Troisième Guerre mondiale, ils en mourraient de rire. La Troisième Guerre mondiale, ils l’auront  déclenchée pour sauver al Qaida. Oui, mon cher lecteur, l’oncle Sam a envahi l’Afghanistan pour punir al Qaida, et maintenant nous av[...]

Nuclear Poker

If the greatest poker game of all times will end by nuclear grand slam, and the survivors will review the causes of WWIII, they will die laughing. The Third World War had been fought to save al Qaeda. Yes, my dear readers! Uncle Sam invaded Afghanistan in order to punish al Qaeda, and now he started the World War to save al Qaeda. Positively a great ambivalent passionat[...]

Les secrets de l’accord Pizza-Vodka

L’accord récent sur la Syrie, signé à Genève par Kerry et Lavrov, qui passera probablement à l’histoire comme l'accord « Pizza-Vodka » (parce que c’est ce que chaque camp a servi aux journalistes tout le temps qu’ils ont attendu les résultats) comportait cinq documents, outre les points divulgués par les deux ministres des Affaires étrangères. Les US ont insisté pour en garder secret le conte[...]

The US insisted on keeping the content secret, despite Russian ins[...]

We would expect her to win or lose graciously, as befits a former First Lady, but gosh, she is clumsy – and blames her lack of grace on poor Mr Putin. He is sure hell of a guy; visitors to Berlin’s AltesMuseum qu[...]

A Crooked Mile

The “crooked mile” from the Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes (“There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile etc”) is Fleet Street, which is well known to London journalists. So I was told when I joined the BBC at Bush House, at the very end of Fleet Street. Not only is the street itself crooked, but so are many of its occupants. Crookedness is a professional problem for the media. Howe[...]

L’Ennemi malgré lui

Les primaires orchestrées par le Democratic National Committee (DNC), la plus haute instance du Parti démocrate, en 2016, me rappellent le film paradigmatique de Leni Riefenstahl Le triomphe de la volonté. La phrase du général Allen (quatre étoiles du corps des Marines, à la retraite), prêt à botter le cul aux Russes, brandissant le drapeau au milieu de la foule hystérique criant  « [...]
