Once you commit to helping children in need, you stop seeing children as “yours” and “other children.” The fate of every single kid in desperate need of help becomes your problem, your task, and your mission.
The Pentagon’s new military strategy proposes that Russia is a major US adversary, that there might be a war between the two countries, and that the US is losing its military technology supremacy, says Brian Becker from the anti-war Answer Coalition.
RT correspondent Ilya Petrenko was teargassed by police as he got caught in clashes between security forces and radical left Antarsya coalition supporters during a protest on the capital’s central Syntagma Square.

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and he says presumed frontrunner Hillary Clinton made it an easy call.Larry Cohen, outgoing president of the Communications Workers of America, told The Huffington Post he will serve as an unpaid volunteer stumping for Sanders as the Vermont senator seeks the Democratic nomination.

Liberation movements want a place at the table. The Islamic State, on the other hand, wants to destroy the table. The Islamic State isn't simply an insurgency. Though it certainly aspires to overthrow the current regimes in Damascus and Baghdad, it doesn't have any particular attachment to this territory. It maintains a warm spot for the holy sites in Saudi Arabia. Otherwise, it doesn't care about national boundaries.

The results of this program, and of the help it provided, speak for themselves. Greece’s economy contracted by 27 per cent, and the debt rose to 320 billion, despite a partial write-off. From an original 60 per cent of GDP, the debt thus reached 175 per cent. Meanwhile, neither the Troika nor the previous Greek government acknowledged the obvious failure. The Troika not only insisted on continuing and even radicalising its clearly pointless actions, but also proposed treating the economic ills of other eurozone countries (Italy, Spain and Portugal) on the basis of the Greek model.
The eurozone project is a complete fiasco so Greece should be allowed to go back to the drachma, to devalue and to rebuild itself, columnist and podcaster Jon Gaunt told RT. This might be the beginning of the end of the whole EU he adds.
The latest polls and betting suggest Greece will back the cash-for-reform deal proposed by creditors in the July 5 referendum. They point to a mood shift since Athens closed banks and limited cash withdrawals.
Since the US inspired coup in Kiev in Feb.2014 it's been nonstop bashing of Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin in the west. The purpose, get Putin to take the bait & invade Ukraine. Only Putin isn't biting. He wants no wider war in Ukraine. He's interested in economic development w/ China & lately working behind the scene to develop a Gazprom Nord Stream gas pipeline from Russia under the Baltic Sea directly into Germany.
Michael Grunwald at Politico.com reports the content of a portion of the TPP that he has seen, but tells me that he does not have permission to post the original text. Drug prices are kept sky-high in the US, while in the rest of the world, competition by generic manufacturers offers equivalent products at a fraction of the price. There is a thriving Internet-based business re-importing drugs to the US that have been forbidden for domestic sale. If TPP passes, not only will the
We must send a simple message to the billionaire class: You can't have it all. They will argue, of course. So will the politicians who serve them. They will insist that we can't do better, that we can't have the same basic rights as citizens of other countries. It's time to ask them, and ourselves, a simple but very important question: Why not?
