One Word Would Change the World

drone“How long a time lies in one little word!”- Shakespeare, Richard II

How like King Richard stands the fate of President Obama, who now, with each thought, passes another minute toward his inevitable end in power.

The Emperor is naked

by Adam Keller

At 10.30 pm the website of the Palestinian news agency Ma’an bore an ominous headline: “Ceasefire falls apart in final hours, with no renewal in sight; Palestinian negotiators charge Israel has refused to accede to Palestinian requests”.

Eyeless in Gaza

The trouble with war is that it has two sides. Everything would be so much easier if war had only one side. Ours, of course.

Five Ships Needed to Save Gaza’s Children

The statistics are just beginning to be analyzed—by UN agencies and a myriad of NGO’s whose mandates include salvaging young lives from the nearly incalculable ravages of the five-week (and counting) Zionist aggression upon Gaza.

Police Brutality in America

What If the Military or CIA Had Killed Mike Brown?

While the facts surrounding the police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, must still be determined, one thing is clear: If it turns out that the killing was not justified, the law dictates that he is subject to being criminally indicted and also to being sued in a civil action for wrongful death by Brown’s survivors.
