SONS OF MALCOLM: LIBYA, FROM THE HIGHEST LIVING STANDARDS OF ITS PEOPLE IN ALL OF AFRICA, TO COLLAPSED ECONOMY AND DEATH SQUAD RULE

SONS OF MALCOLM: LIBYA, FROM THE HIGHEST LIVING STANDARDS OF ITS PEOPLE IN ALL OF AFRICA, TO COLLAPSED ECONOMY AND DEATH SQUAD RULE | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Libya is burning through central bank reserves and scrapping infrastructure projects to overcome its worst budget crisis in decades after the seizure of oil installations by armed groups has reduced the government's income almost to zero.

Oil exports - Libya's lifeline - fell to less than 100,000 barrels a day last week after militiamen shut down two large oilfields, compounding closures of ports in the east by rebel groups campaigning for regional autonomy.

Exports had exceeded one million bpd before armed militias, who helped oust Muammar Gaddafi in the 2011 civil war, started seizing oil facilities last summer to grab a slice of the country's oil wealth.

The budget crisis threatens to accelerate Libya's slide into instability as Tripoli's fragile government struggles to impose its authority on a country where brigades of heavily armed ex-rebels challenge its efforts to introduce democracy.

Beware Venezuela’s False ‘Anarchists’: Unmasking El Libertario | venezuelanalysis.com

Beware Venezuela’s False ‘Anarchists’: Unmasking El Libertario | venezuelanalysis.com | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Not everyone who calls themselves anarchists are worthy of the name. Before expressing our solidarity, we should be clear who it is we are supporting.

When it comes to the Venezuelan protests of recent weeks and months, misinformation reigns supreme. Just as liberals and progressives have been misled by desperate hashtags like #SOSVenezuela and simplistic comparisons to Occupy, so too has the radical left been tempted by the some self-described Venezuelan anarchists, and El Libertario in particular.

US and European sanctions against Russia are designed to “punish” its actions in Crimea. However, instead of forcing Russia into economic and political submission, the sanctions will spur the country to greater political and economic independence.

Vladimir Putin and the West: To Dance or Not to Dance | New Eastern Outlook

Vladimir Putin and the West: To Dance or Not to Dance | New Eastern Outlook | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

These are the days of our discontent. At least, this is likely the lament privately voiced by many in the corridors of American and European power. Obama’s recent trip to Europe to shore up greater resolve and commitment for strengthening sanctions and isolating (or is it shaming?) Russia after the Crimea annexation (or is it secession?) was fairly uneventful. The fact of the matter is no one in Europe seems to be all that eager to truly push violent confrontation with Russia as long as Russia doesn’t seem intent on trying to obtain other new pieces of territory. Of course, no one in Western Europe approves of how things went down in Crimea. But despite constant bleatings in the West of greater aspirations to violate sovereignty and so-called desires to reinvigorate old Russian visions of imperial grandeur, the empirical reality in Crimea is that things were, well, rather dull: the Russians came, they saw, they sat down and refused to leave. That pretty much describes the affair in a nutshell. And so far, nothing else has happened.

4 Criminals Who Spent Less Time in Jail Than the Homeless Mother Trying to Get a Job

4 Criminals Who Spent Less Time in Jail Than the Homeless Mother Trying to Get a Job | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
Poverty has been criminalized. There is simply no doubt anymore that this is a fact. In our society, we pass laws demanding welfare recipients pass drug tests that they pay for out of their own pockets before we will provide them with financial assistance; we cut off unemployment benefits at 26 weeks or less despite the continuing difficultly many have at finding full time, living wage jobs in that amount of time; we put caps on the number of children a parent can have while on public subsidies while at the same time cutting off funding to groups that will help those parents prevent pregnancy if that is what they wish to do; and many states spend more money on prisons than schools.
