‘SWIFT is archaic, doesn’t stand up to modern digital age’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
In the short-term being removed from SWIFT would be a problem for Russia, but in the long-term it’s an archaic analogue system for payments which should be replaced by fully digital technology, Patrick Young, expert in global financial markets, told RT.

For Syriza, the only way is Essex! British university a hotbed of Greek radicalism | Global politics | Scoop.it
World statesmen have been educated in Britain’s finest institutions – Oxford, Cambridge and the University of London. Now the University of Essex may be the intellectual cradle of Europe’s politicos – Greek anti-austerity ones, at least.

Life under fire: Civilians trapped in E. Ukraine conflict zone adjust to war reality

Life under fire: Civilians trapped in E. Ukraine conflict zone adjust to war reality | Global politics | Scoop.it
Residents of towns along the frontline in eastern Ukraine have been living in constant fear ever since full-scale fighting resumed there. RT’s Roman Kosarev has spoken to those trying to survive in the very heart of the conflict zone.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Gorlovka is a martyr town of the criminal offensive decreed by Kiev. Poroshenko said it: "Their children will have to live in the basements". That is the future the US-supported junta is offering to the Russian speakers in the Southeast, as a prelude to a general ethnic cleansing. And this is what the EU, even violating their own procedures are cheering by imposing sanctions against Russia, who is the only one providing humanitarian aid! Fortunately the Greeks, a small and looted state, has risen the head and now says openly OXI, No. Other European states are following. The end of the US-made-up junta is near.

New Greek govt furious over EU 'unequivocal' anti-Russia statement

New Greek govt furious over EU 'unequivocal' anti-Russia statement | Global politics | Scoop.it
The new Greek government has spoken out against the EU partners over the statement that lays the blame for Saturday’s fatal attack on the Ukrainian city of Mariupol on Russia. Hungary, Slovakia, and Austria voiced similar objections earlier.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Zito i Ellada!!! Time to remind the EU bureaucrats that the Union enjoys democratic procedures (even of diminished by a huge democtaric deficit by its practitioners), and if it is no, it means no. Tusk will have to make a quick course of "democracy for dummies", and forget his Russophobic enthusiasm!

OpEdNews Article: Article: Russia In The Cross Hairs

OpEdNews Article: Article: Russia In The Cross Hairs | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russian journalists, those independent of American bribes, think that facts matter in the disputes about Russian actions. They think that the assaults on civilians by the American supported Ukrainian Nazis is a fact. But, of course no such fact exists in the Western media. In the Western media the Russians, and only the Russians, are responsible for violence in Ukraine.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

In other words, the "free speech" that Washington and its EU, Canadian, and Australian puppet states tout means: free speech for Washington's propaganda and lies, but not for any truth. Truth is terrorism, because truth is the major threat to Washington.

Washington would prefer to avoid the embarrassment of actually shutting down RT as its UK vassal did to Press TV. Washington simply wants to shut up RT. Lark's message to RT is: self-censure.

OpEdNews Quicklink: Researcher explores how the universe creates reason, morality | Global politics | Scoop.it
Recent developments in science are beginning to suggest that the universe naturally produces complexity. The emergence of life in general and perhaps even rational life may be extremely common. Scientists are increasingly beginning to discuss how the basic structure of the universe seems to favor the creation of complexity: disordered energy states produce atoms and molecules, which combine to form suns and associated planets, on which life evolves. Life then seems to exhibit its own pattern of

Two weeks ago, Jeffrey Sterling went to trial at last. He was at the defense table during seven days of proceedings that included very dubious testimony from 23 present and former CIA employees as well as the likes of Condoleezza Rice. Jeffrey Sterling is facing a very long prison sentence. As a whistleblower, he has done a lot for us. He should be invisible no more.

Some Contributions Of Islamic Culture By John Scales Avery

Enrique Ferro's insight:

During the initial stages of the conquest, the Islamic religion inspired a fanaticism in its followers which was often hostile to learning. However, this initial fanaticism quickly changed to an appreciation of the ancient cultures of the conquered territories; and during the middle ages, the Islamic world reached a very high level of culture and civilization.

Duma chief hints at Russia’s exit from Council of Europe

Duma chief hints at Russia’s exit from Council of Europe | Global politics | Scoop.it
Sergey Naryshkin has confirmed that Russia was leaving the PACE until the end of 2015 and added that next year the country might cease its membership in the Council of Europe.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

What is the Council of Europe worth for? And its Parliamentary Assembly? Is it worth to spend money and money in such a useless thing? Since 1949, have states who have conducted genocidal colonialist wars, or contributed to bomb sovereign states even in Europe, or violated all sort of human rights, have such states been suspended? Again a double standard to justify the hypocrisy of European anti-Russianness.

US 'routinely' violates judicial rights, fails to punish torture - HRW

US 'routinely' violates judicial rights, fails to punish torture - HRW | Global politics | Scoop.it
US state and local officials should reconsider racial discrimination and police abuse, which triggered public outrage and demonstrations internationally, Human Rights Watch said in its World Report 2015, which monitors the situation in over 90 nations.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Oops! What is happening to HRW? It was more subservient usually to the US, considering its funding and origins. But now not only this, but it is even denouncing the Fascists in Kiev of using WMD... A pity that the European politicians have forgotten the reading skills and learn nothing.
