3 officers killed; 3 injured in Baton Rouge
Posted: Sunday, July 17, 2016

3 officers killed; 3 injured in Baton Rouge
1 suspect killed, no motive identified at this time

Baton Rouge Gunman Was Former Marine
According to CBS News, Long was honorably discharged from the Marines in 2010 after serving since 2005, reaching the rank of sergeant. He served in Iraq from June 2008 to January 2009, and records show he received several medals during his military career, including one for good conduct.

Violence Haunts South Sudan as Civil War Flares Nick Turse
The parched field in the town of Leer, South Sudan, was covered in a carpet of dried grass. Nearby was a sheet of corrugated metal — a roof to a home that, like most in this town, was now in ruins. Lying in the field were scattered clothes: a desert camouflage shirt in the pattern the U.S. military calls "chocolate chip," a blue T-shirt that read "Bird Game" with characters resembling those of the video game Angry Birds.

NATO Pledges Four More Years of War in Afghanistan
Posted: Tuesday, July 12, 2016

This week's Chilcot report on Britain's role in the 2003 invasion of Iraq was as polite and guarded as a proper English tea party. No direct accusations, no talk of war crimes by then Prime Minister Tony Blair or his guiding light, President George W. Bush. But still pretty damning.

Why the British Said No to Europe
Posted: Saturday, June 25, 2016

How Severe Is Venezuela's Crisis?

European Union’s Imperial Overreach
The European Union's haughty and hasty expansion into low-wage Eastern Europe may be its undoing, as the Brexit vote shows popular resistance to the westward migration of workers that followed, writes Jonathan Marshall.

Why the British Said No to Europe
The majority vote by Britons to leave the European Union was an act of raw democracy. Millions of ordinary people refused to be bullied, intimidated and dismissed with open contempt by their presumed betters in the major parties, the leaders of the business and banking oligarchy and the media.

Basta Ya, Brussels! British Voters Reject EU Corporate Slavestate

Goodbye to All That: Why the UK Left the EU
So what started as a gamble by David Cameron on an outlet for domestic British discontent, to be used as a lever to bargain with Brussels for a few more favors, has metastasized into an astonishing political earthquake about the dis-integration of the European Union.

Despite the Vote, the Odds Are Against Britain Leaving the EU
The Brexit vote shows that a majority of the British voters understand that the UK government represents interests other than the interests of the British people. As difficult as the British know it is to hold their own government to account, they understand they have no prospect whatsoever of holding the EU government to account. During their time under the EU, the British have been reminded of historical times when law was the word of the sovereign.

Policy by Waging Undeclared War Against Russia?
Washington's NATO buildup on Russia's borders, its refusal to cooperate with Moscow in Syria and Ukraine, and its anti-Putin propaganda form an ominous pattern.
