Another Gaza War Looms
By Max Blumenthal

Before homes are even rebuilt in the ruins of the Gaza Strip, another war looms.

The Palestinian Question And The US-Iran Deal
By Jon Kofas

No matter where one stands ideologically and politically, the Iran deal has sent a very strong signal across the world that the US and its EU partners finally acknowledge that Iran is the most important regional power in the Middle East after a power gap created by the US-led overt and covert military destruction of Iraq and Syria. After decades of trying to contain Iran and undermine it in every possible manner from economic sanctions to military action in surrounding countries, the US and its EU partners have finally acknowledged that Iran is the catalyst to the regional balance of power in the Middle East

India: Make-Or-Break Player For Climate Change
By Sajai Jose

When India and other developing countries accuse rich nations of double standards on climate change, they are right. However, the emphasis on historical inequities ignores the cumulative nature of the impact of emissions on the climate. India's sheer size and the accelerating rate of its emissions, which defy a global trend of decline, appear to make India the make-or-break player when it comes to climate change

Climate Change And India: The Way Ahead
By Kashif Islam

Climate change mitigation strategy provides us the opportunity to both reduce our resource consumption before it reaches the unsustainable levels of the developed countries, and also ensure sufficient stocks of resources for the coming generations. For that, however, there is a need for the decision makers to free themselves of the hold of traditional economists, predicated entirely upon increasing national income. Perhaps, it will be seen in hindsight that the danger from the dogma of economic growth be no less than climate change and environmental degradation in general

Greed Is Driving Us Towards Disaster
By John Scales Avery

Greed, in particular the greed of corporations and billionaire oligarchs, is driving human civilization and the biosphere towards disaster. The greed of giant fossil fuel corporations is driving us towards a tipping point after which human efforts to control climate change will be futile because feedback loops will have taken over. The greed of the military industrial complex is driving us towards a Third World War that might develop into a catastrophic thermonuclear war. The greed of our financial institutions is also driving us towards economic collapse, as we see in the case of Greece

Who Will Bail Out Humanity If The GMO Evangelists Win?
By Colin Todhunter

Just like with the mega banks and the swindlers behind them, we are witnessing another systemic and politically well-connected, corrupt enterprise that is 'too big to fail'. Spitznagel and Taleb are right to ask: who will be there to bail out humanity once it does fail?

The Constitution Of The EU's Dictatorship
By Eric Zuesse

The EU's dictatorship is by the aristocracy, against the public. It's just like the U.S. dictatorship — competing parties, both or all of which represent the aristocracy, against the public; none representing the public, against the aristocracy. Conservatives support it, because they support the aristocracy

Iran Nuclear Deal: The Devil May Be In Interpretation
By Abdus Sattar Ghazali

Anyone seeking an ideological rationale for the Iranian motivations in signing the agreement can also find it in the fact that it indeed may prove, from the Iranian standpoint, that the country's revolution has gained legitimization, international recognition and even a chance for preservation since from this point on, the life of the accord is dependent upon that same revolutionary regime. That's no small accomplishment for a regime that up to now had been such an abomination, Zvi Bar'el concluded

India Should Pay Attention To What Narayana Murthy Says
By Dr. Vivek Kumar Srivastava

Infosys founder N.R. Narayana Murthy has said that there is no significant innovation in last sixty years in country and no Prime Minister except Pt. Nehru has concentrated much on the science. He said "Is there one invention from India that has become a household name in the globe? Is there one idea that has led to an earth-shaking invention to delight global citizens? Folks, the reality is there is no such contribution from India in the last 60 years." There has been some criticism of his statements in some quarters which is unwarranted. He is absolutely correct at his point. He has in fact brought in the open space the real status of the Indian scientific and research community
