The state must cushion the economic impact (tags)
Heiner Flassbeck expects a slump of the German GDP of 20-30%, Neither Trump nor Merkel said a word about stabilizing the economy. You can't just shut down the economy and then hope nothing happens. Companies, banks and people must be supported. Money must go to those now becoming unemployed..
Misuse of Scientific Information – Robert Tronge (tags)
Using scientific studies and scientific information appears in most cases a proper way to approach things, but in actuality people should take the time to look into the information provided and not taken at face value.

Decriminalizing Bashar al Assad: Towards a more effective anti-war movement (tags)
Building a phoney case for imperialist regime change is, of course, not unusual. What is really curious is that the leadership of the anti-war movement in the west – the people whose clear responsibility is to build the widest possible opposition to war on Syria – has been actively participating in the propaganda and demonisation campaign. Whilst opposing direct military strikes, they have nonetheless given consistent support to the regime change operation that such strikes are meant to consummate.
Israel's "red line" on Iranian nuclear programme and a flashback to 1986 (tags)
“With over 2000 highly operational nuclear weapons already in the world, it is ironic, to say the least, that Iran’s nuclear energy program is considered by the US and its allies as a threat to “global security”. […] Israel, which follows a policy of nuclear ambiguity, never comments on its nuclear capabilities. However, they are widely known to possess 300 to 400 nuclear warheads with 80 of them in high operational alert […], that is, they are ready to fire.” [Dr Ismail Salami’s article entitled ‘Nuclear Crucifixion: Fake Data and Ficticious Reports used as A Pretext to Wage War on Iran’] http://www.globalresearch.ca/nuclear-crucifixion-fake-data-and-ficticious-reports-used-as-a-pretext-to-wage-war-on-iran/

Aquino for the Plaza Miranda bombing immediately after it happened.

Prof. Jose Maria Sison: On the Commemoration of September 21 (tags)
PHILIPPINES: Ferdinand Marcos himself designated September 21, 1972 as the date for Presidential Proclamation 1081, declaring martial law.

Blackwater's Bu$ine$$ (tags)
In one of the company's most bizarre recent actions, on December 1 Blackwater paratroopers staged a dramatic aerial landing, complete with Blackwater flags and parachutes--not in Baghdad or Kabul but in San Diego at Qualcomm Stadium during the halftime show at the San Diego State/BYU football game. The location was interesting, given that Blackwater is fighting fierce local opposition to its attempt to open a new camp--Blackwater West--on 824 acres in the small rural community of Potrero, just outside San Diego.

Russia's Joint Radar Gamble (tags)
There are mainly three proposals made by the Russian President - to broaden US missile defense plans in Europe by bringing NATO into the project, which President Bush has not agreed to; to set up an "online information exchange center" in Moscow as part of the system; and similar installations in European cities with a joint radar at Azerbaijan that would protect the whole of Europe, rather than only one part of Europe.
THE US-ARROYO REGIME HAS NO CONCERN AT ALL FOR THE FILIPINO WORKERS (tags)
Today, the working class in the Philippines and the whole world commemorate International Workers' Day. This is in recollection and reaffirmation of the long history so far of the heroic struggle of the working class to claim their interests, rights at power against the rule, exploitation and oppression of the big capitalist class and their henchmen and instruments that are characterized by greed, rottenness, deceit and cruelty at their very core.
The Arroyo regime has scuttled the peace talks (tags)
Avoiding answering the question whether the Arroyo regime agrees with the report of United Nations Special Rapporteur Philip Alston that the military is principally responsible for political killings, Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto Romulo makes the false statement that the regime has a standing invitation to the National Democratic Front of the Philippines for peace talks. The Arroyo regime has scuttled the peace talks. It has declared its militarist plan to destroy the revolutionary movement before 2010. It has flagrantly violated the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL) by committing crimes against humanity, perpetrating extrajudicial killings of more than 830 unarmed civilians, enforced disappearances on about 200 persons and frustrated killings on more than 350 persons, among other gross human rights violations.
David Simon: “We’re Headed Towards Separate Americas!” (tags)
The award-winning author of the acclaimed HBO program, “The Wire,” painted a grim picture of this country. David Simon said: “We’re headed [towards] separate Americas.” Speaking at Loyola College, in Baltimore, MD, on Feb. 6, 2007, he said that “unencumbered Capitalism has become our God.” In our greedy society, Simon underscored: “Human are worth less, not more: less.” He said America is going to be a “more brutish, cynical and divided place.”
They say that the torture is effective (tags)
7/12/2006 - They say that the torture is effective. But it has been applied massively to hundred of migliaia of persons in Algeria, Vietnam, Latin America, and it has not prevented neither the defeat of the French colonial power, neither the umiliazione of the North American imperial power, neither the fall of the Latin American military dictatorships.
European powers refuse to send more troops to Afghanistan (tags)
Bitterness and general rancour characterise the relations within NATO one week after its senior military commander called for 2,500 reinforcements to be urgently dispatched to assist the 8,000 British, Canadian and Dutch troops caught up in savage combat in Afghanistan’s southern provinces. In the face of dire warnings that the NATO-led occupation risks losing ground before a resurgence of support for the former Taliban regime, the major European members of the alliance have refused to send a single soldier.

Bill O’Reilly Wants to Suppress Abu Ghraib Evidence (tags)
The ACLU is fighting in court for the release of all evidence that might tie high level policy makers to the Abu Ghraib torture scandal. The Pentagon said the release of that evidence will “increase the likelihood of violence” against U.S. troops. Fox News’ Chickenhawk, Bill O’Reilly, agrees that it is not only unpatriotic to do so, but that it would “help the jihadists.” He also smeared CBS, NBC and the NY Times for supporting the ACLU’s legal position.

America is the Ultimate Failed State. (tags)
After knocking down most of its forests, paving over its wetlands, polluting what water it has left and making all urban environments only habitable with what has become an accepted level of collateral damage in terms of illness and death caused by environmental pollution which has set off a domino effect of ill health down through the generations exposed, America has become like a caged animal not willing to face its own condition but yet completely willing to lash out violently at the World around it.

Does Bush Plan To Attack Israel Next? (tags)
We must stop terrorist states and rogue nations. President Bush has made this abundantly clear. The Mideast has only one country that is a bigger nuclear power than England, unregulated and unchecked by the International Atomic Energy Commission or the U.N., with an unsafe,aging nuclear reactor at Dimona, Israel. There is a fleet of Phantoms to deliver the nuclear bombs, as well as missiles that can hit all European capitals, as mentioned by an Israeli diplomat recently. It has advanced chemical and biological weapons. It has defied the most UN resolutions of any other country.

Peacekeepers not Informed about Depleted Uranium in South Iraq (tags)
As the UN-backed ‘stabilisation force’ in Iraq (SFIR) is taking shape, peacekeepers are not well informed about the risks of DU contamination, since the US government refuses to disclose information on DU firing locations. Dutch troops arriving in the southern province of Al Muthanna are particularly ill-informed, as the Dutch government has unduly asserted that "no DU ammunition was used in the area during the recent conflict". If this information comes from US officials, as the government claims, it has been deceived--as much as it has misinformed parliament.

Reflections on why the United States and Israel are threatening Syria (tags)
As if to underline this warning, the US bombed the Syrian Trade Center in Baghdad and closed the oil pipeline from Iraq to Syria. Syria’s valuable trade with Iraq ú which totaled about $5 billion in the period 1998-2002 ú has been cut off. This is a serious blow to the Syrian economy since Iraq had in recent years become Syria’s main trading partner.
