Libya Women Footballers Covered Head to Toe Enrage Islamists

Libya Women Footballers Covered Head to Toe Enrage Islamists | Global politics | Scoop.it
[...] members of the Libyan women’s soccer team decided they wouldn’t pose for an official photograph. The rise of religious extremists since the fall of Muammar Qaddafi has made it dangerous for women to even practice Libya’s favorite sport.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

FUNDAMENTALISTS ARE SEXUALLY REPRESSED, AND FOR THEM WOMEN EVOKE THEIR INTIMATE GHOSTS. THEY HAVE REVERSED ALL THE GENDER PROGRESS ACHIEVED BY THE JAMAHIRIYA. THANK OBAMA'S "KINETIC BOMBINGS"!

“They don’t believe women should have any life,” said Khaled Maatawa, a professor of creative writing at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and director of Tripoli’s Arete Foundation for Arts and Culture. When it screened the movie “Men Who Stare at Goats” last week, the projectionist put his hand over the lens during any scene showing a woman immodestly dressed, Maatawa said. “The idea is that women should not arouse men.”

Killary wants war but Putin is smarter - Russia News Now

Killary wants war but Putin is smarter - Russia News Now | Global politics | Scoop.it
I quite easily noticed the recognizable style of our overseas opponents, who now very much need a good real war in Europe. They already made a similar attempt using a Turkish fighter as the tool, but this failed. The Americans are famous for using their favorite methods to infinity regardless of the outcome.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The goal of the Crimea operation was clear: achieving what didn’t happen in 2014, i.e., a full-fledged war. This would have allowed one of the main goals of American policy to be realized: completely and once and for all cutting off Europe from Russia and stuffing the EU with expensive American liquified gas and striking at the Russian economy with an oil embargo and possible exclusion from SWIFT, thereby turning Russia into some kind of bigger Iran.

Drugs and Privilege: Big Business, Congress and the EpiPen

Drugs and Privilege: Big Business, Congress and the EpiPen | Global politics | Scoop.it
Mylan manufactures and sells EpiPen, the emergency delivery system for an allergy drug, epinephrine, that can make the difference between life and sudden death. The cost for a two-pack of the devices has soared nearly 550 percent to $608.61. That’s a price far beyond the means of most families with kids threatened by possibly fatal allergic reactions.

At the same time, Bresch has seen her own compensation increase a whopping 671 percent, from $2,453,456 in 2007 (the year that Mylan bought EpiPen) to $18,931,068 in 2015.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Cash and carry has become nothing more than standard operating procedure in politics and government, and it’s wrecking the republic. The whole system is rotten to the core, corrupted by big business and special interests from the seventh son to the seventh son. Or daughter, as we learned these past few days when the news introduced us to Heather Bresch, CEO of a drug company called Mylan and daughter of Democratic US Sen. Joe Manchin III, who’s also the former governor of West Virginia.

On Provocations Exacerbating Tensions

On Provocations Exacerbating Tensions | Global politics | Scoop.it
France's preposterous burkini ban - wherein The State has declared what Muslim women can/can't wear at the beach "to protect the population,” which evidently doesn't include them - stumbles on in legal limbo, with a high court ruling it constitutes "blatantly illegal infringements on fundamental freedoms" but many towns enforcing it anyway. One inspired suggestion: Given who's perpetrated what crimes, wouldn't it make more sense to ban suits?

On April 17, the Brazilian lower house of Congress voted to impeach President Dilma Rousseff, who was elected in 2010 and reelected at the end of 2014. It was a garish spectacle, with one right-wing deputy dedicating his vote to the colonel who headed a torture unit during the dictatorship. One of its torture victims was the president herself.

The Real US Syria Scandal: Supporting Sectarian War

The Real US Syria Scandal: Supporting Sectarian War | Global politics | Scoop.it
The main criticism of US policy in Syria has long been that President Barack Obama should have used US military force or more aggressive arms aid to strengthen the armed opposition to Assad. The easy answer is that the whole idea that there was a viable non-extremist force to be strengthened is a myth – albeit one that certain political figures in London and Washington refuse to give up.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
“The Obama administration bears responsibility for this atrocity, because it could have prevented Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia from launching their foolishly adventurous war in Syria. None of them did so out of desperate need; it was a war of choice in every case. And each of the three states is part of the US security system in the Middle East, providing military bases to NATO or to the United States and depending on US support for its security.
