  • Looking Backward, Looking Forward: 2014 - 2015

    The balance sheet for 2014 and the prospects for 2015 provide us with a complex panorama of negative and positive outcomes. In most cases the advances are not earth-shattering but open possibilities for further progress. The negative developments, however, have greater and more threatening systemic outcomes.

  • Imperialism and the Politics of Torture

    The US Senate Report documenting CIA torture of alleged terrorist suspects raises a number of fundamental questions about the nature and operations of the state, the relationship and the responsibility of the Executive Branch and Congress to the vast secret police networks which span the globe – including the United States.

  • All-Out War in Ukraine

    There are clear signs that a major war is about to break out in Ukraine: A war actively promoted by the NATO regimes and supported by their allies and clients in Asia (Japan) and the Middle East (Saudi Arabia).

  • The Fall of the Berlin Wall and the Multiplication of Western Walls

    On November 9, 2014, Germany and its Western Allies, celebrated the ‘Fall of the Berlin Wall’ and the subsequent ‘reunification’ of the ‘two Germanys’. Prime Minister Merkel described the ‘historic event’ as a “victory of freedom for all peoples in Europe and across the world.”

    Obama’s hysterical and very selective presentation of ISIS crimes forms the pretext for launching another war against a predominantly Muslim country, Syria, while shielding his close ally, the royal Saudi decapitator from US public outrage. ISIS crimes have become another excuse to launch a campaign of ‘mass decapitation by drones and bombers’.

  • Obama Buggers Europe: Sanctions Deepen the Recession

    The Obama Administration actively pressured Europe to impose harsh sanctions on Russia in order to defend the violent takeover (‘regime change’) in the Ukraine. England, France, Germany and the rest of the European regimes gave in to Washington’s demands.

  • The Soaring Profits of the Military – Industrial Complex and Casualties

    The launch of two major wars by the US government had two major beneficiaries, one domestic and one foreign. The three major weapons manufacturers, Lockheed Martin (LMT), Northrop Grumman (NOG) and Raytheon (RTN) have delivered record-shattering returns to investors, CEOs and investment banks during the past decade and a half.

  • Greece: The Dilemmas of Democratic Socialism
