This World: Its Inhumanity and its Corrupt Politics

This piece was intended in the beginning as a short and a personal letter to a very special friend and an extremely missed colleague who has left this country searching for a safer environment and a better future for his children, but when I finished it I found out that it has grown into a hefty and a very detailed dissertation which might be boring to my friend.  I have also discovered that in my enthusiasm to write something intelligent I have neglected working on the weekly installment to the hanoudiletter, so I decided that I am going to push it into the web site and write to my friend as soon as the messy situation in this country and the still very serious condition of my son Nazar would permit.

In 1990, after two world wars and a protracted cold war there was a hope that the world would enter into a new peaceful era.  Oil became once again the center of a very serious international conflict, the world was jolted by the venture of another crazy 20th century dictator.  Saddam Hussein has recently emerged from his eight years war with Iran bloodied and weakened but also not quite defeated, the war has ended with him in control of an incredibly powerful military machine but also bankrupt and with tens of billions of dollars in debt.  To the South was the small Kuwait with its vast amounts of oil and its other immense resources, it was very tempting, an enormous prize.

Eurasia is the term given to a super-continent which is a combination of Europe and Asia, this combination forms the largest single land mass of the earth, a huge expanse more than 54 million square kilometer.  Eurasia stretches from Vladivostok in the East to Lisbon in the West, from the Arctic in the North to the Indian Ocean in the South. Eurasia has been for centuries the center of world influence very often hordes of people descended on it from the steppes and conquered it and subjugated its people which propelled it into the position of the first world power. The landlocked central part of Eurasia was regarded by Mackinder [Sir John Hartford, 1861-1947.  A prominent British political thinker and geographer] in the early 20th century proposed that north-central Eurasia, would eventually be the heart of the world’s controlling power the key to world domination and called it the pivot area or the heartland, because of its geographic position and vast natural resources.  This same area was coined later on by Zbigniew Brzezinski (Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser) in his book The Grand Chessboard.
