Eric Zuesse – Obama v. Putin: Their Debate on Crimea (I) - Strategic Culture Foundation - on-line journal > Obama v. Putin: Their Debate on Crimea (I) The Source of the ‘New Cold War’: The Basic Disagreement Between Obama and Putin The basic disagreement between U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, and the source of the economic sanctions against Russia, and ’the new cold war,’ concerns the question of whether the process by which Crimea separated from Ukraine and joined Russia was, as Obama says, «aggression» by Russia, an illegal «seizure» of Crimea by Russia; or, on the other hand, as Putin says, a thoroughly legal and democratic act by the people of Crimea, to exercise their right of self-determination, via a referendum. Many of the points that will be referred-to, along the way here, are going to be opposite to the views that are widespread in the West; and, so, wherever that is the case, clicking onto the linked source will enable you easily to check what’s being said, if it conflicts with what you ‘know’ or have previously been told. This is like George W.

27062015The International Forecaster Are the Iranian Nuclear Negotiations Breaking Down As Alfred Adask pointed out in our weekly conversation on "Financial Survival" this week, the non-stop round-the-clock coverage of the Greek crisis in the news media the past few weeks has effectively obscured some other pressing issues from gaining much attention. One of those issues is the possible meltdown of the framework agreement on the Iranian nuclear program that was reached in April and announced with much fanfare, ballyhoo and fear porn. Wait, Iran has a nuclear program? Well hopefully you knew about this already, but in case you didn't: yes, the Iranians have a nuclear program.
State Sponsors of Terrorism: US Planned and Carried out 9/11 Attacks, but Blames Other Countries for Them Out MEMRI - Middle East Media Research Institute On the eve of President Obama’s April 2016 visit to Saudi Arabia, the U.S. Congress began debating the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), that would, inter alia, allow the families of victims of the September 11 attacks to sue the Saudi government for damages. Also in April 2016, the New York Times published that a 2002 congressional inquiry into the 9/11 attacks had found that Saudi officials living in the United States at the time had a hand in the plot. The commission’s conclusions, said the paper, were specified in a report that has not been released publicly.
10 Groups That Don’t Flinch Under Fire (And, Thus, Deserve Your Support) Here at CounterPunch we get lots of calls from readers this time of year asking: where are the good groups? Where can I send a year-end check and know that the money will be well spent, not recycled into a fat executive salary or an annoying direct mail campaign? There are many such groups out there; indeed, there is a vibrant and thriving grassroots movement across a whole range of issues. Unfortunately, we can’t bring all of them to your attention. But once or twice a year we devote the pages of CounterPunch to a survey of what these organizations are up to. Greek Drama – Open Thread. 07July2015 by James CorbettTheInternationalForecaster.com July 7, 2015 There is a drama of epic proportions unfolding in Greece right now. It’s surely not a comedy, but will it end in tragedy? Stay tuned. The story so far: The Greek people defied the majority of the world’s expectations on Sunday by voting “no” to the Eurozone’s bailout proposals.
The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn! The Senate lent strong support today to a simply worded resolution calling on Iran to let four Americans come home. Washington Post bureau chief Rezaian, a California native who reported from Tehran since 2008, was seized on July 22, 2014, in a raid on his home. His wife, Yeganeh Salehi, a reporter for UAE English-language newspaper The National, was also detained and released in October. Word came last month that Rezaian will go on trial for espionage charges. Marine vet Hekmati was seized while visiting extended family for the first time in August 2011, Abedini was convicted in January 2013 for establishing Christian house churches, and Levinson went missing off the coast of Iran eight years ago while working as a private investigator. Levinson’s family later received images of him in captivity, though the Iranian government has maintained they don’t know who is holding the former FBI agent.
A Brief History Of Media Cover-Ups & Self-Censorship: Who’s Afraid of Russ Baker’s “Family Of Secrets” - By Matt Harvey On February 17, 1967, the newspapers ran stories about a sensational new investigation into JFK’s assassination, headed by a New Orleans DA named Jim Garrison, who called into question the “lone gunman” theory laying all the blame on Lee Harvey Oswald. Five days after the news story broke, the prime target of Garrison’s investigation, David Ferrie, a right-wing pilot linked to the CIA, was found dead of a “cerebral hemorrhage.” Public opinion was polarized over JFK’s assassination. Forty-six percent of Americans doubted the Warren Commission’s finding that Oswald “acted alone;” Garrison was becoming more vocal about Oswald’s alleged CIA connection; and independent journalists were asking potentially embarrassing questions. Nerves in Washington were frayed. Then on April 1, the CIA circulated an extraordinary memo instructing agents how they could play the mainstream media in order to discredit all the speculation of CIA involvement.
China Still Fudging Gold Numbers (And Everything Else) With the release of China’s latest phoney baloney gold reserve numbers we are still nowhere near answering the question of how much gold China really is hoarding. With fake GDP numbers and opaque treasury holding numbers, is there anything at all we can believe about China (or most other countries’) economic figures? And what does the latest jaw-dropping Chinese capital outflow data portend for the world economy…and the world at war?
