09-04-2014 08:55Peaceful protesters were sidelined to oblivion. More than three years of bloodshed left no room for moderates. “Regime change” by force from outside the country, along the Iraqi and Libyan lines, has proved a failure. U.S. and western calls for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down is now a faint cry that can hardly be heard.
08-04-2014 16:56If the people of the world were a happy family, then the so-called Atlantic relationship would be the nasty generation conflict dragging on at the extent of everyone else. But it is not so, since a kid that takes a sweet from the kitchen jar is harmless fun while a politician who facilitates a corrupt business deal is a threat to many lives. Though every aspect in the comparison is being scaled in size, the margin of inefficiency for a lethal failure to occur remains the same but takes quite a different percentage in the two scenarios. While the occasional hungry kid cannot loot the kitchen that much that anyone starves, already a little monetary incentive taken by a politician can cost the lives of a possibly unlimited number of people. For the purpose of an evaluation of the appropriateness of leniency that comparison is just unsuitable, since any shared criterion between the two situations would only amount to an attempt to balance false negatives with false positives. The organisation of large populations requires different structures than that of small ones, but that challenge is proven to be shrinkable to the effort of organisation among large numbers of small populations. The mathematical illusion of demographic scalability however does not add up any other than to a systematic failure to resolve the conflict. This gives the Atlantic divide a kind of surreal notion, since unless collapse of the centralist structure has occurred on either side this specific illusion of it cannot not be expected to disappear. But the contradiction in that relationship is widening, and that makes it more likely for the most favourable scenario to occur. It could also be said that the parting of ways between the two hemispheres is the necessary precondition for humanity to survive the era of unsaturated growth at whose end the logic of sustainable sustainability is locating us. Being its oldest toxic legacy, the deepening of the Atlantic divide signifies the finiteness of that era.

03-04-2014 16:02Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) believes that the arms trade treaty, ratified yesterday by 19 countries, including the UK, will prove to be ineffective at best and counterproductive at worst. The treaty will not reduce the arms trade or prevent exports to human rights abusers.
Today, 1 April, has been called as a further day of action against ATOS and the Department for Work and Pensions. I decided to lend my support to the call for an end to the notorious work capability assessments that force disabled people to seek jobs that don't exist, and to the genocidal government policy of cutting off benefits and leaving claimants without the means of survival.
30-03-2014 17:36Does Obama realize that he is leading the US and its puppet states to war with Russia and China, or is Obama being manipulated into this disaster by his neoconservative speech writers and government officials? World War 1 (and World War 2) was the result of the ambitions and mistakes of a very small number of people. Only one head of state was actually involved–the President of France. In The genesis Of The World War, Harry Elmer Barnes shows that World War 1 was the product of 4 or 5 people. Three stand out: Raymond Poincare`, President of France, Sergei Sazonov, Russian Foreign Minister, and Alexander Izvolski, Russian Ambassador to France.

15-03-2014 15:48When the fever curve of the European regime crisis peaked this week with North American military provocations in Poland, it was a remarkable sign to all who care about the dying empire and its deluded followers. At the same time, France announced its campaign to proliferate atomic reactors of the MOX type which leave bomb-grade waste, North American military provocations in East Asia were stomping up a black hole of propaganda detracting the region just as much as the European propaganda war against Ukraine did there, and the state of Israel committed suicide by sacrificing the last remnants of Theodore Herzl´s „Separate Houses“ Doctrine to an assumed primacy of the casern over the temple. What happened in Poland was the high water mark of a worldwide imperialist death surge by which the collapse-prone system is desperately attempting to include all these who have declared independence of it into its demise. Seen from Britain, where this analysis is published with a bow to the grave of Karl Marx, it also is the explanation why the „Little Hitler of London“ has proven to be even more stupid than the German Motorists Association.
