AUKUS in breach of NPT, damaging regional security

PEJOURNAL - Trade talks between Australia and the European Union have been postponed as a row with France over the so-called AUKUS security partnership deepens.

Afghanistan’s collapse is a rude awakening for South Korea

BY: Jong Eun Lee* PEJOURNAL - After twenty years, the war in Afghanistan has ended with the Taliban’s victory. Multiple U.S. analysts are already writing commentaries on what has gone wrong with the U.S. military strategy in Afghanistan, but far fewer are assessing what the end of the war signifies for South Korea.

However, it should be noted that during the Korean War, most of the South Korean populace and…

With the United States facing two budget deficit crises and the global Covid-19 epidemic, the majority of Americans want the Biden administration and Congress to prioritize strengthening the economy and controlling the outbreak of coronavirus in 2021.

Middle East is a possible host for World War III

BY: William Holmes PEJOURNAL – The policy of US sanctions and addiction to forcing non-aligned countries to adhere to its maximum-policies has created new lines of resistance in the international system including Middle East. Globally, in the aftermath of the Cold War and the undisputed power of the Americans over the international system, sanctions diplomacy has been widely used in US foreign policy. The lack of global rivals after the fall of the Soviet Union, which led to the creation of a new world order to the detriment of American interests, in turn paved the way for a monopoly of…
