answer to a question
from Alan Sokal
thing that confused me on your Web site was the classification
of Newton, Hume and Einstein as "irrationalism". Are

PKK Question -
Hatred in Middle East and Europe
new old. The frozen development, or absolute resistance to
history: Kurdish settlement in Harran in southeast Türkiye.

Logical Analysis Regarding the Balkans
the Light of an Article by Noam Chomsky
Before the commencement of the NATO aerial bombardment over
Yugoslavia, more than 2000 people had been killed and hundreds
of thousands forced to leave their homes. Mr. Chomsky opposed
to the bombardment which was undertaken to prevent the possible
full scale mass destruction. Not because he had a better idea.
He found it outright illegal. He proposed simply to DO NOTHING
to stop it on the pretext of respecting and strengthening
the international law, while the latter, as it was epitomized
by the Security Council, would exactly have dictated the same:
DO NOTHING, just as it DID NOTHING in the case of Bosnia before.
