Putting Syria into some perspective

Syriaby William Blum

The Holy Triumvirate — The United States, NATO, and the European Union — or an approved segment thereof, can usually get what they want. They wanted Saddam Hussein out, and soon he was swinging from a rope. They wanted the Taliban ousted from power, and, using overwhelming force, that was achieved rather quickly. They wanted Moammar Gaddafi's rule to come to an end, and before very long he suffered a horrible death. Jean-Bertrand Aristide was democratically elected, but this black man who didn't know his place was sent into distant exile by the United States and France in 2004. Iraq and Libya were the two most modern, educated and secular states in the Middle East; now all four of these countries could qualify as failed states.

Censorship by the Conversation

Carlos Latuff/ MWC NEWSPro-Zionist Mainstream media censorship

Free speech and correct reportage are  vital for societal safety. As a 5-decade-career academic scientist I am appalled by the disconnect between perception of reality by expert scientists and that of politicians and the public informed by Mainstream media. This disconnect is most astonishingly apparent into man-made climate change –  all but a tiny minority of scientists accept that anthropogenic global warming is a reality and a major threat to humanity whereas perhaps only about 50% of laypersons accept this because of egregiously incorrect mainstream media reportage (most notoriously by the Murdoch media empire).

CO2 Rise ended Ice Age

CO2Stop emissions, return to 300 ppm CO2

US scientists have recently found that a rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) preceded the global warming that brought about the end of the last Ice Age. This finding debunks the claims of climate change skeptics that  climate change is not happening or if it is then the  increased atmospheric CO2 is a consequence and not a cause of global warming. Back during the last major deglaciation event atmospheric CO2 rose from 160 parts per million (ppm) to an eventual 260 ppm.

Bringing the war home

policeBy Marti Hiken and Luke Hiken

In 1965 the Office of Law Enforcement Assistance (1965-1968) was established. It was replaced in 1968 by the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA), which was created by the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act. Begun within the U.S. Department of Justice, its function was to administer federal funding to state and local law enforcement agencies; it sponsored educational programs, research, state planning agencies, and local crime initiatives. [1] Its budget was $63 million. By 1971 LEAA had expanded its budget 8-fold, to $480 million.

ICC Absolves Israeli Lawlessness

Jose Luis Moreno OcampoEstablished by the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) on July 1, 2002, it's mandated to prosecute individuals for genocide and aggression, as well as crimes or war and against humanity.

Instead, it functions solely as an imperial tool. It supports wealth and power. It targets independent states Washington and other Western nations oppose. In the process, it lets America and rogue NATO powers get away with murder.
