  • Capitalists, Technocrats and Fanatics: The Ascent of a New Power Bloc

  • Obama: “Remaking the Middle East”: The American Gulag

    During the beginning of his first term in office Obama promised “to remake the Middle East into a region of prosperity and freedom.” Six years later the reality is totally the contrary: the Middle East is ruled by despotic regimes whose jails are overflowing with pro-democracy political prisoners.

  • Do “Peace Accords” Lead to Peace, Justice and Security for the People?

    It is commonly assumed that “peace agreements” between pro-US rightwing regimes and leftwing insurgents lead to peace, justice and greater security. A number of peace agreements which were signed and implemented in the 1990s in Central America, South Africa, Philippines and elsewhere provide us with ample data over two decades to confirm or reject this commonplace assumption.

    We will examine the case of El Salvador where a powerful guerilla movement (FMLN) signed off on a peace accord in 1992.

  • The Deeper Meaning of Mass Spying in America

    The exposure of the Obama regime’s use of the National Security Agency to secretly spy on the communications of hundreds of millions of US and overseas citizens has provoked world-wide denunciations.

Congressional leaders from both the Republican and Democratic Parties, as well as top judges, approved of the unprecedented domestic spy program.
