  • A Disaster Waiting to Happen

  • A Fly’s Eye View of America’s War Against Vietnam, Part Two

    Managing and conducting what are always called merely “operations”, it is impossible to draw any informed conclusions about the relationships between these people, the institutions they represent and the interests vested in those institutions—the progenitors of the war against Vietnam and the wars for the control of land and population that have continued since.

  • A Fly’s Eye View of America’s War Against Vietnam, Part One

    The first war in Vietnam the one fought for credibility, to oppose communism, to defend the American way of life or “freedom”—this was a crusade in the most medieval sense of the word.

  • The Syrian refugee crisis: a first-hand account from the Turkish border

    More than three years have passed since protesters took the streets in Syria. What began as a call for democracy, a mass movement to end Bashar al-Assad’s 43 years of family rule, has turned into a foreign-funded proxy war without a foreseeable end.

  • Farley Mowat speaks out on Vietnam

    The great Farley Mowat passed away this week. We bring you his first article for Canadian Dimension magazine, published in 1967 about the Vietnam War. "The American presence in Vietnam and the undeclared war being waged there by the United States constitutes one of the most blatant acts of aggression the world has seen since the destruction of Hitler’s Third Reich," Farley wrote in this powerful piece.
