    Marwan Bishara “The thing about imperial powers like the UK and the US is that they don't give a damn about the action, in this case, the occupation. They care for the actor, and the actor is an ally, Israel. That's why this court is important, because this court does not see actors. It doesn't care about the identity of the actor, it only cares about the nature of the act. And in this case, it's 75 years of dispossession, 56 years of occupation. The UK and the US don't want you to know the legal opinion of this question, because what they care about is the cynical calculus of geopolitics.” 13 hours ago

    Josep Borrell “Today, we are further tightening the restrictive measures against Russia's military and defence sector. We remain united in our determination to dent Russia's war machine and help Ukraine win its legitimate fight for self-defence.” 13 hours ago

“There is a fine line between deterring China and provoking it. My take is that while we should do significantly more to help Taiwan boost defenses and deter aggression, we should do so quietly, without needlessly humiliating China. Sometimes Americans loudly embrace Taiwan in ways that inflame tensions at times when we should be hoping to lower them. Let me also make the case that we think too much in terms of an invasion - when the greater risk may be China's taking lesser nibbles to pressure Taiwan, leading to the possibility of accidents and escalation that could drag us into an unintended world war, as happened in 1914.”
