Finding Pearls of Wisdom in The Donald’s Trumperbolic Campaign

Donald TrumpI’ve just received an interesting query from Mingo, a long-standing European journalist friend and expert on all-things-Afghan… someone whose acquaintanceship dates back to the early days of America’s involvement in Afghanistan. Someone, I might add, who did prove to have in 2004 a clearer vision of what was to happen in that country than most, if not all, military experts, media gurus and politicians in the US. My writings at that time can attest to that.



The Iran Agreement and Israel’s Claim

Chuck SchumerAmerican Jewish Opposition to the Iran Agreement

On 13 August 2015 the New York Times (NYT) carried a front page article entitled “Donors Descend on Schumer and Others in Debate on Iran.” The article opened a window on the activities of big money donors in the Congress of the United States.

The Nuclear Challenge: Fukushima and Beyond

The terrifying nuclear disaster of March 11, 2011 associated with the reactor meltdowns, hydrogen explosion, and release of radioactivity at the Fukushima Daiichi reactor complex was an anguishing complement to the awful collective memories of the Japanese people arising from the atomic attacks seven decades ago. We can only wonder about the lingering effects on the Japanese national...

Iran Nuclear Accord: Beware the False-Flag Op

If, as it seems, the enemies of a settlement with Iran will fail to prevent it, then the next question is, “Might they be able later on to force its failure?” The answer, clearly, is “Yes.” Any number of political factions on both sides will be tempted, so it will be essential that Washington prepare itself.

How the Free Market Killed New Orleans

by Michael Parenti

The free market played a crucial role in the 2005 destruction of New Orleans and the death of thousands of its residents. Forewarned that a momentous category 5 hurricane might hit that city and surrounding areas, what did officials do? They played the free market. They announced that everyone should evacuate. All were expected to devise their own...

The Molten Three

I must admit that Moshe ”Bogie" Ya'alon did not top the list of my favorite politicians. The former army Chief of Staff and present Minister of Defense looked to me like a mere lackey of Netanyahu and a one-dimensional militarist. Many people call him a "bock", a non-complimentary German-Yiddish term for billy goat.

The Nuclear Challenge:The Weird ‘Good Fortune’ of Tsutomu Yamaguchi

Over the years I have often thought about the political and moral consciousness associated with the atomic targeting of Japanese cities, as well as the absence of any expression of official remorse for the suffering caused and the precedent set.

Once again, UK lets Netanyahu get away with it

The British government used the "civilising" narrative to deny sovereignty, justify the colonisation process and build an empire. It argued that there was a "majority of German-speaking" population to allow the surrender of the Sudetenland to Nazi Germany in 1938, and it defended the fallacy of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq to support an illegal war.

Brightsides to the Perpetual Campaign

Easy to tell the end of summer the year before a presidential election is nigh, because that bothersome quadrennial buzzing noise is back. And no, we’re not talking about candidates riding the Tilt- A- Whirl at the Iowa State Fair after eating pork on a stick.

Boy, Mother, & Soldiers - Reflections Over A Picture

Look at the picture above and read below

This picture captures a live spectacle of tyranny. I don't know who took this picture. Defying customs, the owner has not scribbled his or her identity on the picture. It appears the owner published this picture as a piece of charity for the world to see oppression.

Who says popular quest for change has been quelled?

by James M. Dorsey

A series of recent mass protests in several Arab countries have called into question suggestions that civil wars, brutal crackdowns and military coups and interventions have quelled popular willingness to stand up for rights in the Middle East. The protests, although focussed on specific social and economic demands, fundamentally have the same objectives...

Purge of Corbyn voters unmasks Labour

by Jonathan Cook

The British political and media elite have been agreed on one thing this summer: the need to character-assassinate Jeremy Corbyn, the only half-decent politician (make that, human being) running for the Labour leadership.

Hitler, Mussolini, Khrushchev, and Trump

Things are getting mighty ugly. This week two Boston men beat up a homeless Hispanic immigrant. They used a metal pole to break his nose and batter his chest and arms. They also left him soaked in urine.
