Mohsen Abdelmoumen : Vous avez étudié le cas du chaos libyen, comment envisagez-vous la sortie de crise dans ce pays ?

Eric Draitser : Malheureusement il n’y a aucune solution réelle au chaos en Libye dans un proche avenir. La guerre terroriste menée par l’OTAN à ce pays a efficacement détruit toutes les institutions politiques, économiques et sociales, de telle façon que tout gouvernement futur devrait utiliser un temps et des ressources énormes pour reconstruire le pays à partir de zéro. Étant donné que le soi-disant « gouvernement » en Libye est plus un symbole politique qu’une direction efficace de l’État, il est peu probable qu’il puisse y avoir une stratégie cohérente concertée pour reconstruire le pays et de ses institutions.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: What is your analysis of the current situation in Syria and Iraq with the rise of Daesh?

Jason Hirthler: The United States has presented the rise of Daesh as a grave threat to Middle Eastern stability and a just cause for humanitarian intervention. In fact, it was the United States and its Saudi, Jordanian, and Turkish allies who have facilitated the rise of Daesh and the Al Nusra Front. Both are descendants of Al Qaeda and have sadly benefited from Western training, funding, and arms. Among other sources, Seymour Hersh’s excellent essay, “The Redirection” from 2007 details the Bush plan to use Sunni radicalism to achieve its regional goals. Obama seems to have continued the policy. Lire la suite »

Thomas S. Harrington: « No new future ever comes out of thin air »

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: In societies under total domination of ultra-liberalism and banks like Goldman Sachs and others, can we still talk about democracy and social justice?

Dr. Thomas Harrington: While I will not say it is impossible, it is certainly very, very difficult to do so in the present context.

The US defeat in Vietnam, followed shortly thereafter by Watergate, truly frightened the US elites. They realized that if the expectation of real democracy–rooted in the simple idea that the government should be accountable to the citizenry–were to continue to grow among the general population of the country as it did in the late 60s and early 70s, their ability to pursue the project of dominating the world’s economy and the world’s resources would be heartily diminished.

Russia invades Ukraine. Again. And again. And yet again … using Saddam’s WMD

“Russia reinforced what Western and Ukrainian officials described as a stealth invasion on Wednesday [August 27], sending armored troops across the border as it expanded the conflict to a new section of Ukrainian territory. The latest incursion, which Ukraine’s military said included five armored personnel carriers, was at least the third movement of troops and weapons from Russia across the southeast part of the border this week.”

None of the photos accompanying this New York Times story online showed any of these Russian troops or armored vehicles.

“The Obama administration,” the story continued, “has asserted over the past week that the Russians had moved artillery, air-defense systems and armor to help the separatists in Donetsk and Luhansk. ‘These incursions indicate a Russian-directed counteroffensive is likely underway’, Jen Psaki, the State Department spokeswoman, said. At the department’s daily briefing in Washington, Ms. Psaki also criticized what she called the Russian government’s ‘unwillingness to tell the truth’ that its military had sent soldiers as deep as 30 miles inside Ukraine territory.” Lire la suite »

The Lie Machine, by Paul Craig Roberts

I have come to the conclusion that the West is a vast lie machine for the secret agendas of vested interests. Consider, for example, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and the Transpacific Trade and Investment Partnership.

These so-called “partnerships” are in fact vehicles by which US corporations make themselves immune to the sovereign laws of foreign countries in which they do business. A sovereign country that attempts to enforce its laws against an American corporation can be sued by the corporation for “restraint of trade.” For example, if Monsanto wants to sell GMO seeds in France or US corporations wish to sell genetically-modified foods in France, and France enforces its laws against GMOs, the Transatlantic Trade Partnership allows France to be sued in jurisdictions outside the courts of France for “restraint of trade.” In other words, preventing the entry into France of a prohibited product constitutes restraint of trade.

No, we do not want to your interview, Mr. Kissinger!

Henry Kissinger. D.R.

In order to best perform our work by giving the floor to various figures, even those for which we have no sympathy – this is called journalistic ethics-, we had asked you for an interview to obtain your testimony on your long political career that made history, even if it is not in the good sense of the word. After skipping long our solicitations, we received your response soothing where you have congratulated us for our professionalism, but that was nothing more that a way to flee as you have done it your whole life. Although you have thanked us for our investigative work, knowing your political career, we wonder if it is a compliment or an insult to us and to our readers. Your refusal does not surprise us because we know your faculty to avoid embarrassing questions. The Chilean judge Juan Guzman has understood it too, since you have never wanted to answer to his thirty questions about your links with Pinochet that he submitted you. Regarding the quote to appear that addressed you a French judge during one of your trips to Paris, you preferred to flee France rather than respond. It seems that judges and collectives chase you each other across the planet for war crimes. How are you always in freedom while you are searched in several countries? Lire la suite »
