Wars and conflicts
Those Libyan Atrocities: Do They Really Stand Up?
By : PATRICK COCKBURN - Sunday June 26, 2011
In war, accounts of atrocities need to be treated with scepticism. Surveying a battlefield where he had once fought, the great Confederate general Stonewall Jackson turned to an aide and asked: "Did you ever think, sir, what an opportunity a battlefield affords liars?" He meant that in war people, motivated by fear, self-interest or a simple desire to make sense of a confusing and terrifying situation, make things up. And in the midst of a fast-moving conflict it is more than usually (...)

Amnesty Questions Claim That Gaddafi Ordered Rape as Weapon of War
By : PATRICK COCKBURN - Sunday June 26, 2011
1 comment
Human rights organizations have cast doubt on claims of mass rape and other abuses perpetrated by forces loyal to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, which have been widely used to justify Nato’s war in Libya. Nato leaders, opposition groups and the media have produced a stream of stories since the start of the insurrection on February 15, claiming the Gaddafi regime has ordered mass rapes, used foreign mercenaries and employed helicopters against civilian protesters. An investigation by (...)

CAMERON AND OBAMA: THE WAR WILL GO ON FOR YEARS
By : Stop the War Coalition - Sunday June 26, 2011
Growing public opposition to war here and in the US is starting to have an impact on the politicians. But whatever the spin this week by Obama and Cameron, the reality is the war in Afghanistan will continue for at least another four years, with ever escalating loss of Afghan civilian and military lives. Thousands are going to die in a war that has no credible purpose or viable "exit strategy", outside of an increasingly desperate search for a way to get out without the US and its allies (...)

26 June is the UN-decreed International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, this date commemorating Chinese hero Lin Zexu’s dismantling of the opium trade in Humen, Guangdong, an event that was a catalyst for the First Opium War of Britain versus China. Today Britain is complicit in the US Alliance restoration of the US-protected, Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry that now kills 100,000 people annually around the world. In 2003 the Australian National Drug (...)

Why is the United States waging perpetual war against the Cuban people’s health system?
By : William Blum - Saturday June 11, 2011
In January the government of the United States of America saw fit to seize $4.207 million in funds allocated to Cuba by the United Nations Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria for the first quarter of 2011, Cuba has charged. The UN Fund is a $22 billion a year program that works to combat the three deadly pandemics in 150 countries. 3 "This mean-spirited policy," the Cuban government said, "aims to undermine the quality of service provided to the Cuban population and to (...)

Libya: a deafening silence

So now we are sending Apache jets to bomb Libyan civilians. An escalation in yet another bloody NATO war. Or, in the words of Colonel Jason Etherington, “it just brings something else to the party.” The entire media have fallen into line. This is a war to protect civilians. This is a war to force Gaddafi to leave. As if Western governments, with their proud histories of human rights abuses across the world, have any moral right to make judgements on the government of Libya. (...)

NATO official: Gadhafi a legitimate target
By : Fran Townsend - Friday June 10, 2011
1 comment
A U.N. resolution justifies the targeting of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, a senior NATO military official with operational knowledge of the Libya mission told CNN Thursday. Asked by CNN whether Gadhafi was being targeted, the NATO official declined to give a direct answer. The resolution applies to Gadhafi because, as head of the military, he is part of the control and command structure and therefore a legitimate target, the official said. NATO has been ramping up pressure on the (...)

Letter to Australian MPs & Media re pro-Zionist Australia, Apartheid Israel & latest Israeli atrocity

A noisy debate erupted in Australia recently because Greens Senator-elect Lee Rhiannon supported Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel. Lee Rhiannon was attacked by the Australian Liberal Party-National Party Coalition Opposition and the Australian Labor Party Government (aka the Lib-Labs) who support anti-democratic, race-based, genocidal, war criminal, racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel.

WAS MY SON’S DEATH IN AFGHANISTAN A PRICE WORTH PAYING?
By : London - Monday June 6, 2011
Six British soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan in the last ten days. The father of one of them asked in an article in the Independent if his son’s death had been "a price worth paying", to which a serving soldier on leave from Afghanistan wrote in reply an emphatic "no". (SEE http://bit.ly/kL3f9b ) During that time, nineteen US soldiers were also killed, along with other casualties among the Nato invading armies. As always, we do not have (...)

Our Tahrir Square: DC’s Freedom Plaza on October 6th
By : David Swanson - Monday June 6, 2011
When other nations’ governments go off track, their people do something about it. In Tunisia and Egypt people have nonviolently claimed power in a way that has inspired Americans in Wisconsin and other states, as well as the people of Spain and the rest of the world. Washington, D.C., is the weakest point in our democracy, without which state-level reform cannot succeed. Most Americans want our wars ended, our corporations and billionaires taxed, and our rights expanded rather than (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
