The Truth of Libya (Finally) Goes Mainstream By Eric Draitser

27 June 2014 — Stop Imperialism

99977More than three years after the US and its NATO allies unleashed an “intervention” and regime change in Libya, the US establishment admits they maybe have “got it wrong.” Naturally, there were many of us who were demonized endlessly for speaking out against that war, and against all those politicians, analysts, and “activists” on the left and right, who championed the “humanitarianism” of waging war on Libya. We were attacked as “soft on dictators,” “conspiracy theorists,” and “anti-Americans.” And yet, today it is our voices that still proclaim loudly the immorality and illegality of that war. Thankfully, it seems the establishment is beginning to hear us.

Video: FEEM Lecture by Anatol Lieven, King’s College London: “The Ukraine Debacle”

16 May 2014 — Youtube

The recent development of the Ukrainian crisis has unveiled a series of long-neglected problems that today emerge dramatically. The complex current scenario and the difficulties in recomposing the crisis at diplomatic level show the inadequacy of EU and North American foreign policies and international relations with Russia and the former Soviet Union bloc. The possible scenarios leading to a resolution of the crisis have significant consequences at social, economic, political, energy and geostrategic levels, also considering the role played by China as a newly consolidated world power.

The Russia-China Counter-Alliance to US-NATO Aggression By Alexander Clackson

26 May 2014 — Global Research

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said recently that his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping earlier this week in Shanghai marked a new stage in Russia-China relations, and that the two countries will roll out all-around cooperation. China and Russia signed a $400 billion (237.1 billion pounds) gas supply deal on Wednesday, securing the world’s top energy user a major source of cleaner fuel and opening up a new market for Moscow as it risks losing European customers over the Ukraine crisis. Furthermore, the two countries began joint military exercises in the East China Sea in a clear show of strength against Japan, a western ally.

The IMF goes to war in Ukraine By Pepe Escobar

7 May 2014 — RT 

The IMF has approved a $17 billion loan to Ukraine. The first $3,2 billion tranche has been received today.It’s essential to identify the conditions attached to this Mafia-style “loan.” Nothing remotely similar to reviving the Ukrainian economy is in play. The scheme is inextricably linked to the IMF’s notorious, one-size-fits-all “structural adjustment” policy, known to hundreds of millions from Latin America and Southeast Asia to Southern Europe.

Kiev loses control of Donbas – What next in Ukraine crisis? By Alan Woods and Francesco Merli

1 May 2014 — In Defence of Marxism

In a rare moment of candour, yesterday, Ukraine’s acting President Turchynov admitted that his forces were “helpless” to quell the unrest in Eastern Ukraine, as the pro-Russian insurgency is on the rise. Furthermore he admitted that the Ukrainian security forces were not reliable and “some of these units either aid or co-operate with terrorist groups.” Now the goal would be to prevent the pro-Russian insurgency from spreading in the Kharkiv and Odessa regions. This amounts to a declaration of defeat.
