Obama Administration Sabotages Nuclear Nonproliferation Conference 27.5.2015 Truthout - All Articles
So much for President Obama's commitment to a nuclear-weapons-free world. The Obama administration recently blocked the adoption of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Review Conference's consensus statement, shielding Israel and its nuclear weapons from the proposed Middle East nuclear-weapons-free zone. The US move also gave the world another hefty push toward the potential for nuclear catastrophe.

The Canadian University and the War Against Omar Khadr 27.5.2015 Truthout.com
David L. Clark: Omar Khadr is neither toxic nor disposable. What are the origins of this sometimes ferocious desire to render him expendable and unworthy? Universities are perhaps the best place in the world to ask and answer such questions, helping others understand why being schooled into aggression towards others withers the democracy that we claim to inhabit and cherish. Omar Khadr. (Photo: 4WardEver Campaign UK ) Want to challenge injustice and make real change happen? That's Truthout's goal - support our work with a donation today! Omar Khadr is a Canadian citizen who spent the first ten years of his life moving back and forth between Canada and Pakistan. In 1996 at the age of ten, he moved with his family to Afghanistan. He was subsequently wounded and captured at fifteen years old after a firefight with American military that left Sergeant Christopher Speer as well as a number of Mujahedeen dead. After his capture, Khadr was interrogated, tortured and held in detention first at Bagram and then ...

The worst of all possible worlds 27.5.2015 Le Monde Diplomatique
Imagine an alternative universe in which the two major Cold War superpowers evolved into the United Soviet Socialist States. The conjoined entity, linked perhaps by a new Bering Straits land bridge, combines the optimal features of capitalism and collectivism. From Siberia to Sioux City, we'd all be living in one giant Sweden.
It sounds like either the paranoid nightmare of a John Bircher or the wildly optimistic dream of Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders.

Stop Calling TPP A Trade Agreement - It Isn't 27.5.2015 Crooks Liars
This is a message to activists trying to fight the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Stop calling the TPP a "trade" agreement. TPP is a corporate/investor rights agreement, not a "trade" agreement. "Trade" is a good thing; TPP is not. Every time you use the word "trade" in association with the TPP, you are helping the other side. "Trade" is a propaganda word. It short-circuits thinking. People hear "trade" and the brain stops working. People think, "Of course, trade is good." And that ends the discussion. Calling TPP a "trade" agreement lets the pro-TPP people argue that TPP is about trade instead of what it is really about. It diverts attention from the real problem. It enables advocates to say things like, "95 percent of the world lives outside the U.S." as if that has anything to do with TPP. It lets them say , "We know that exports support American jobs" to sell a corporate rights agreement. It enables them to say nonsense like this about a corporate rights agreement designed to send American jobs to ...
