 Tue 29 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT Russia told to pay $50bn in Yukos case
A court based in The Hague has ordered Russia to pay about US$50 billion to a group of former shareholders of the Yukos oil company, formerly owned by Mikhail Khodorkovsky, freed last year after eight years in prison on tax-evasion and embezzlement charges. The court said officials at state-owned Rosneft, which acquired most of Yukos's assets, were working for Russian President Vladimir Putin in destroying Yukos. (Jul 29, '14)
 Tue 29 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT Vietnam buckles under Chinese pressure
Vietnam's failure to counter China's months-long placement of an oil rig in disputed waters with any meaningful gesture threatens the Hanoi government's legitimacy. If the public believes that it capitulated - particularly at a time of slowing economic growth - this could spark demonstrations aimed at both China and Vietnam's Communist Party-led government. - Zachary Abuza (Jul 29, '14)
 Tue 29 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT CHAN AKYA An era of thugs
At some stage in recent history, governments started to outsource operational aspects of geopolitical strategy to gangs of robbers, murderers and nutcases - Washington in Afghanistan to oppose Russia, Russia in Ukraine now are just two examples - and are increasingly abrogating greater responsibilities to them. It is a very dangerous practice, and where this all ends is anyone's conjecture. (Jul 28, '14)
 Tue 29 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT Why no Arab state cries for Gaza
No Arab State has had the guts to denounce Israel's use of "made-in-the-USA" death machines to rain hellfire on the civilian population of Gaza. Arab autocrats, viewing the world through their concern over how they can continue to cling to power, are too scared for the survival of their regimes to proffer any daring proposals to resolve the Palestinian conflict. - Ehsan Ahrari (Jul 28, '14)
 Tue 29 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT COMMENT The resistance will not be crushed
The destruction in Gaza is overwhelming as the loss of life has climbed during nearly three weeks of battle. Historical inevitability makes it unlikely that the people of the strip will surrender. With even a quick scan of decades of war, it can be said with conviction that Israel cannot possibly subdue Gaza. - Ramzy Baroud (Jul 28, '14)
 Tue 29 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT The Pashtun factor in Pakistan's insurgency
Author T V Paul adds to the numerous unflattering descriptions of Pakistan with his depiction of a "warrior state" whose security forces have outgrown all other institutions and activities and where radical Islamization and its attendant obscurantism have been the consequences of state policy. His explanation for why this continues is elaborate and thought-provoking. - Ehsan Ahrari (Jul 28, '14)
 Tue 29 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT JOHN PILGER Palestine, war and lethal reporting
For Palestinians, the routine terror of the Israeli land-theft, day after day and for decades, has been the ruthless control of almost every aspect of their lives, as if they live in an open prison. Two films, one about the Palestinians and a group of Israelis united in the struggle to be free, and the other about the journalist struggle to remain independent in war zones, highlight the need for courage under fire.

A fresh outbreak of border violence in Central Asia has raised doubts about China's plan to start building a gas pipeline through Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan this year. - Michael Lelyveld
 Tue 29 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT THE BEAR'S LAIR Business and free markets
Traditionally, business was the most important political backer of free markets. The US Chamber of Commerce, however, now reflects an agenda that is thoroughly detrimental to the interests of ordinary people and to the overall US economy. - Martin Hutchinson

 10.3.2010 12:25 Da geht mir der Hut hoch!
Was hier im Gewand von Wissenschaft daherkommt ist reine Ideologie. Wäre sie auf die Vereinigten Staaten beschränkt, könnte dies der Rest der Welt verschmerzen. Das ist jedoch nicht der Fall. Und so besteht die ökonomische Freiheit nicht in der Freiheit souveräner Staaten, die ihren jeweiligen kulturellen Traditionen und spezifischen gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen gemäßen Wirtschaftsmodelle zu entwickeln. Vielmehr werden sie durch die Dominanz des Dollarsystems und seine global wirkenden Institutionen gezwungen, das angelsächsische Modell der „freien Wirtschaft“ zu übernehmen, für das sich der Begriff „Washington Consensus“ eingebürgert hat. Dieses Modell wurde nach 1945 zunächst schleichend und nach dem Vertrag von Maastricht mit zunehmender Beschleunigung von der Europäischen Union übernommen und ist seit 1. Dezember 2009 kodifiziertes Recht. Damit ist die EU päpstlicher als der angelsächsische Papst.

The Israel government still has most U.S. politicians and pundits under its thumb, but the Zionist narrative – excusing the latest slaughter of Palestinians – is losing the hearts and minds of millions of others around the world, notes Lawrence Davidson. By Lawrence Davidson For reasons unknown I have ended up on the list-serve of…

The U.S. media’s Ukraine bias has been obvious, siding with the Kiev regime and bashing ethnic Russian rebels and Russia’s President Putin. But now – with the scramble to blame Putin for the Malaysia Airlines shoot-down – the shoddy journalism has grown truly dangerous, says Robert Parry.
