Ukraine Crisis Continues

Ukraine Crisis Continues | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

We can also safely and conclusively conclude that the Western media’s sudden disinterest in the unresolved story and failure to demand the evidence kept secret by Washington and Kiev is in keeping with the Western media’s role as a Ministry of Propaganda.

The Neocons’ Grim ‘Victory’ in Iraq | Consortiumnews

The Neocons’ Grim ‘Victory’ in Iraq | Consortiumnews | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The neocons who plunged the U.S. into the disastrous Iraq War never say they’re sorry. Instead, it’s all about how their idea was great but President Bush bungled the implementation or how the war was “won” but President Obama chose defeat. Still, the real neocon “victory” could be their success in inflicting endless chaos on the Middle East, as JP Sottile observes.

​Energy ballet: Iran, Russia and 'Pipelineistan'

​Energy ballet: Iran, Russia and 'Pipelineistan' | Global politics | Scoop.it
A fascinating nuclear/energy ballet involving Iran, Russia, the US and the EU is bound to determine much of what happens next in the new great game in Eurasia.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

If Rouhani shines and there is a final nuclear deal, the economic scenario will vastly improve, especially via massive European investment. If Washington scotches the deal over pressure from the usual lobbies, Tehran can always say it exercised all of its“heroic flexibility,” and move on – as in closer and closer integration with both Russia and China.

Staged Provocations Ahead Possible US-Syrian War | New Eastern Outlook | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Of course, while AP attempts to continue differentiating between armed groups and “extremist factions,” the fact that “extremist faction” ISIS had captured Sotloff in Aleppo where these alleged “armed groups” are supposedly operating, indicates that it has been “extremists” fighting Damascus all along and that it is “extremists” who now possess a large number of anti-aircraft weapons, thanks to the US, Europe, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.

Weapons fired in Ferguson come from companies supplying Israel, Bahrain and Egypt | Global politics | Scoop.it
Companies that have become notorious for supplying Israeli, Egyptian and Bahraini security forces with tear-gas have also supplied the police in Ferguson, Missouri with those products. Those companies' weapons are being fired on protesters livid over the police shooting of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old unarmed black teen hit six times by an officer named Darren Wilson. The use of tear-gas, armored vehicles and high-powered rifles on the streets of an American city to quell protests have fed anger over Brown's killing across the nation and has also sparked an unprecedented debate over police militarization in the country.

Ukraine Atrocities: The Illegal Use of White Phosphorous Fire Bombs Against Donetsk Civilians

Ukraine Atrocities: The Illegal Use of White Phosphorous Fire Bombs Against Donetsk Civilians | Global politics | Scoop.it
A report on August 15th from Russian Television alleged that the Ukrainian government that the U.S. installed in February of this year was resorting to internationally banned white phosphorous fire...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The Ukrainian separatists are the residents in Ukraine’s southeast, where Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian President, was elected overwhelmingly by the votes of the people in this region in 2010. They reject the government that Obama installed, and are therefore seeking independence from it. They reject that government not so much because Obama is forcing it on them, as because that government is trying to exterminate them.

Заявления журналистов Guardian и Daily Telegraph о том, что 14 августа российская колонна БТР пересекла границу с Украиной, бездоказательны, пишут авторы публикации на World Socialist Web Site. Вместе с тем, по их мнению, отсутствие улик не мешает ЕС, НАТО и США критиковать Россию и усиливать коллективную безопасность членов альянса.

С началом беспорядков в американском городе Фергюсон (штат Миссури) США лишились возможности осуждать другие страны за нарушения прав человека.
