The Truth Behind the Coming “Regime Change” in Syria By Shamus Cooke

24 January, 2012Global Research

After meeting again to decide Syria’s fate, the Arab League again decided to extend its “monitoring mission” in Syria. However, some Arab League nations under U.S. diplomatic control are clamoring for blood. These countries — virtual sock puppets of U.S. foreign policy — want to declare the Arab League monitoring mission “a failure,” so that military intervention — in the form of a no fly zone — can be used for regime change.

Moral capitalism? What an insult to our intelligence! By William Bowles

27 January 2012

PM Cameron’s call for a “moral capitalism” would be laughable if it weren’t so tragic and hypocritical. After all, hasn’t it been capitalism’s alleged occupation of the ‘moral high ground’, what they now choose to call ‘humanitarian intervention’ that has been used as a justification for mass murder and genocide? But plainly the millions killed and the countries decimated don’t fall under Cameron’s definition of what is and isn’t ‘moral’. Clearly, it’s for ‘local consumption’ only.

US/Israel: Iran NOT Building Nukes
By Ray McGovern

Arab Uprisings Await Their Economic Spring By Yassine Temlali

25 January 2012 — al-akhbar

Some of these accomplishments are material, including higher wages and improvements in working conditions. Others are political, such as the right to democratic representation (the rise of Egyptian independent unions and changing the leadership of the Tunisian general workers’ union, among others).

* Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement

In October 2007, the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan simultaneously announced that they would negotiate a new intellectual property enforcement treaty the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement or ACTA. Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada have joined the negotiations. Although the proposed treaty’s title might suggest that the agreement deals only with counterfeit physical goods (such as medicines) what little information has been made available publicly by negotiating governments about the content of the treaty makes it clear that it will have a far broader scope and in particular will deal with new tools targeting ‘Internet distribution and information technology’.
