Destroying a Nation Without Firing a Shot

Destroying a Nation Without Firing a Shot by Stephen Lendman Predatory monied interests make serial killers look good by comparison. Their business model creates crises to facilitate grand theft, financial terrorism and debt entrapment. They hold nations captive to their demands. They turn crises into humanitarian disasters.

Sellout in Athens

Sellout in Athens by Stephen Lendman Popular Greek sentiment on Troika imposed austerity is clear and unequivocal. Last Sunday's referendum left no doubt. Voters overwhelmingly said "OXI" - "NO."

Hillary Clinton Supports Illegal Israeli Settlements

Hillary Clinton Supports Illegal Israeli Settlements by Stephen Lendman Clinton's support for Israel is unwavering - one-sided like virtually everyone else in Washington.

Looming Greek Capitulation to Troika Bandits?

Looming Greek Capitulation to Troika Bandits? by Stephen Lendman Protracted real-life Greek tragedy appears likely to worsen, not improve. Its economy is in shambles, teetering on bankruptcy under a crushing debt burden impossible to repay and entrapment under predatory Eurozone rules denying fundamental sovereign rights.  Its people suffer hugely from force-fed austerity - more coming...

Irresponsibly Calling Argentina’s President Kirchner Anti-Semitic

Irresponsibly Calling Argentina's President Kirchner Anti-Semitic by Stephen Lendman Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is no Western favorite. Her forthright outspokenness is irresponsibly criticized. Last October, her Security Council remarks denounced US-led Western foreign policies, questioning illegitimate reasons for waging war. "Where do ISIS and Al Qaeda (get) their guns from," she asked? "Yesterday's freedom fighters... Continue Reading →
