Casualties in a civil war
Alan Maass looks at where the fault lies in the shooting down of a passenger plane... THE 298 people who died in the shooting down of a passenger aircraft over eastern Ukraine last week are more innocent victims of a civil war wracking the country - and the two superpowers that have fueled the conflict, the U.S. and Russia, are trying to exploit the tragedy...

Indifference or Detachment?
Martin LeFevre: It's become fashionable to talk about angels, even to proclaim that one is a channel for this or that incorporeal deity. Such stuff rubs me the wrong way, though I don't dismiss it out of hand. 99% horse pucky still leaves 1% that isn't...

Eternity Is Not a Function of Time
Martin LeFevre: ... Freedom doesn't lie in separation of any kind, even politically, much less individually. Independence as we generally know it has nothing to do with freedom. It has come to mean the illusion of being outwardly, individualistic self-sufficient. Physical dependency on each other is a fact, but few people are willing or able to stand alone inwardly. Freedom is first and last within...

In the Fight Against Imperialism - Beware the Peddlers of Despair
Dady Chery: All around us - Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti, the Congo, Ivory Coast, Palestine, Somalia, Libya, and elsewhere - empires are tearing a trail of destruction. This is not a sign of strength but of weakness, because the aim of empire is not to destroy but to conquer... Since conquest cannot be achieved without the collaboration of the conquered, a campaign of demoralization is an essential component of empire...

Dark Convergences, Light Divergences
Martin LeFevre: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead ... Back in March, a lost Malaysian airliner (milked for as much entertainment-news value as the cable networks could squeeze out of it) shoved the Ukrainian crisis off the headlines. Now another Malaysian airliner disaster (involving exactly the same model as the still unaccounted for MH370) has occurred, bringing the Ukrainian crisis front and center again with a vengeance. Metaphysics is a bitch...

Airline Horror Spurs New Rush to Judgment
President Obama and the State Department's "anti-diplomats" are fanning flames of anger against Russia after the shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine. But some U.S. intelligence analysts doubt the popular "blame-the-Russians" scenario, reports Robert Parry. Visit Website ]

Mega-Drought? - It's More Than Just Lack of Rain
"According to the Assessment of Southwest Climate Change (Arizona Institute of the Environment), the five decades from 1950 to 2000 were the warmest in over 600 years. The report predicts that reduced snowfall and increased evaporation from global warming will lead to more droughts over the next 90 years... In short, human influence is once again slowly inching the noose up around its own neck by carelessly burning fossil fuels like there is no tomorrow... Visit Website ]

A flood of bigotry about the border
Mario Cardenas looks at the ugly reaction to the surge of migrant youth detentions--all the way up to the twisted debate in Washington, D.C. ... "The U.S. is filled with suburban Congressional districts that are safe havens for a rising right-wing radicalism that hides behind the mask of concern about homeland security and the economic well-being of native-born citizens....

How Israeli PR Sells Gaza Slaughter
A favorite line of Official Washington goes: "Perception is reality!" - a misguided notion that makes the U.S. mainstream media particularly vulnerable to "perception management." And no one does that better than the Israelis when justifying the slaughter of Palestinians, as Danny Schechter notes... Visit Website ]

Evolution Made Me Do It
Martin LeFevre: It has become fashionable amongst the intelligentsia to offer an evolutionary apologia for all manner of human unintelligence. Adaptive justifications for obesity, religious belief and even political leanings have become au courant with pundits and pandits. Like all intellectual fads however, this one offers no real insight, while encouraging fatalistic irresponsibility...

Are you or your loved ones in the Oil Train Blast Zone?
Yes, oil-by-rail, the gift that keeps on giving.
Thanks to your efforts to curtail crude - and tar-oil pipelines, the greedy carbon industry is increasingly resorting to train travel to move toxic crude around the country. Risky? You bet....

Bidding for Trouble - Brazil, Defeat and the High Cost of Hosting the World Cup
