 Wed 23 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT CRISIS IN UKRAINE A chessboard drenched in blood
The MH17 tragedy may have been a horrendous mistake, but it may also have been a desperate gambit by the Kiev minions of the Empire of Chaos. Washington has been quick off the blocks to ignite and in theory win the spin war to persuade the world that Russia's hand was wittingly or otherwise behind the downing of the civilian aircraft. Moscow, more rationally, is seeking the facts first, before pointing fingers of blame. - Pepe Escobar (Jul 23, '14)
 Wed 23 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT The charge of the Atlanticist Brigade
No credible version of events points to the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine as intentional mass murder or terrorism, and with international experts now getting access to the black box, there seems to be little the Atlanticist Brigade can use to point the finger at Moscow. Still, expect sanctions on Russia to follow, and for the reverberations to reach east all the way to China. - Peter Lee (Jul 22, '14)
 Wed 23 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT JOHN PILGER Orwell alive in Palestine, Ukraine
Western coverage of contemporary events from Palestine to Ukraine reveals that Orwell's 1984 is only too real in today's world. Yet as Leni Riefenstahl knew only too well, the "messages" the media carry of government atrocities depend not on "orders from above" but on a "submissive void" in the population as a whole, not least in the "intelligentsia".

 Wed 23 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT Hardliners maneuver over Iran talks extension
Hardline Iranian factions are maintaining pressure on the government over potential concessions in any nuclear deal reached with world powers, following an amicable extension arrangement reached last week. By exaggerating the level of opposition in the establishment towards a long-term agreement, the conservative establishment hopes to prevent normalization of ties with the US. - Mahan Abedin (Jul 22, '14)
 Wed 23 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT How US policies sealed Iraq's fate
Strikingly devoid of comprehension of the forces at play in Iraq and the region, post-invasion US policy in Iraq followed a simplistic dichotomy of "good guys" versus "bad guys". Distressingly aware of what was happening to their country, Iraqis have long dreaded that the destabilization and sectarian disintegration would lead to the mass bloodletting that's now been unleashed. - Dahr Jamail (Jul 22, '14)
 Wed 23 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT  Losses mount in China loan fraud
Investigators in China are struggling to get to the bottom of a growing form of fraud, amid reports of steel makers using letters of credit for iron-ore shipments as a source of funding to by-pass lending curbs. - Michael Lelyveld
 Wed 23 Jul 2014 11:00:00 GMT THE BEAR'S LAIR World War I still bad news
Richard Ned Lebow's new book, Archduke Franz Ferdinand Lives!: A World Without World War I concludes that if Archduke Franz Ferdinand had lived, the world would at best be only modestly better off. But the author is no economist. - 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.

 Thu, 24 Jul 2014 23:10:16 +0000 Hiding War Crimes Behind a Question
Israel claims its latest slaughter of Gazans is justified as self-defense because some militants are firing poorly aimed rockets into Israel. But that leaves out the moral context of Israel’s seizure of Palestinian land and its harsh blockade of the 1.7 million people locked in the tiny Gaza Strip, says theologian Daniel C. Maguire. By…

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.
