Prospects and Results By S. Artesian

30 May 2015 — The Wolf Report: Nonconfidential analysis for the anti-investor

1. We think that the  “revolutionary”upheavals of the early decades of  the 19th century, those confused, awkward,  stumbling motions  represent a moment of “national liberation,” of an emerging bourgeoisie struggling to secure their domestic market and domestic property against…the imperial houses of Castile and Aragon and their rule in the Americas, against the Sublime Porte of the Ottomans and its rule in the Aegean and Black seas; in the Balkans; in the provinces of its empire.

Haitian lawyers condemn impunity for Sri Lankan soldiers raping children in Haiti

30 May 2015 — HLLN

— We shall not forget: Sri Lankan soldiers were found to have been systematically raping Haiti women and girls, some as young as 7 years old  We shall not forget that rape is a war crime in military conflicts and that the UN gives itself a chapter seven combat mission in Haiti.  If the UN had stop the impunity of the Sri Lankan soldiers in 2007 as demanded  by Ezili’s HLLN in Haiti, maybe the orgy of UN Sri Lankan rape in 2009 against small Tamil girls’ life and innocence would have been prevented.#BlackLivesMatter  Sri Lankan soldiers are still in Haiti. Our babies are still being put into brothels to service UN foreign troops of up to 52 nations. We who believe in decency cannot join in the carnival of Haiti men who say NOTHING to protect Haiti women and small children but are lining up to supervise the UN system in Haiti as puppet “president” or parliament for the occupiers. See,  Haitian lawyers condemn impunity for Sri Lankan soldiers Continue reading this...

Will Moscow and Riyadh Get Closer?

30.05.2015 | 10:50 | Nikolai BOBKIN

…With King Salman becoming the head of state Saudi Arabia has entered a period of transformation. There is ground to believe the Kingdom will review its foreign policy priorities, including the relations with Russia. Until recently the bilateral relationship had been stable. The both sides had strived to keep up the balance in the region. But the Kingdom is an ally of the United States. It spoiled the things. This factor negatively affects the bilateral relationship…

TTIP in Europe

29 May 2015 — 38 Degrees

Yesterday, we had a setback in the fight against TTIP, the dangerous US-EU trade deal. Members of the European Parliament, including five from the UK, failed to scrap one of the worst bits of the deal – the part that would let corporations sue our government in secret courts. [1] But it’s not game over. There’s another, bigger, vote on TTIP less than two weeks away. [2] And we’ve got a plan to help us win.
