The tiny Nordic European island country of iceland is presently experiencing one of the greatest economic comebacks of all time. After the privatization of the banking sector completed in 200o, the economy was thrown into a tailspin when over a five year period, private bankers borrowed 120 billion dollars (10 times the size of Iceland’s economy).

A huge economic bubble was created, causing house prices to double, and making a small percentage of Iceland’s population rich enough to buy up overseas investments, mansions, yachts, and private jets, while leaving an absolutely un-payable debt for all more

On World Environment Day, June 5, 2009, Peruvian Amazon Indians were massacred by the government of Alán García in the latest chapter of a long war to take over common lands—a war unleashed by the signing of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Peru and the United States.

 Three MI-17 helicopters took off from the national police base in El Milagro, Peru, at 6 a.m. on Friday, June 5, and flew over part of the Peruvian highway that joins the jungle to the northern coast, which had been occupied for the past ten days by five thousand Awajún and Wampi indigenous more

 At a covert forward operating base run by the US Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) in the Pakistani port city of Karachi, members of an elite division of Blackwater are at the center of a secret program in which they plan targeted assassinations of suspected Taliban and al-Qaeda operatives inside and outside Pakistan.

The Blackwater operatives also gather intelligence and help direct a secret US military drone bombing campaign that runs parallel to the well-documented CIA predator strikes, according to a well-placed source within the US military intelligence apparatus.Captain John Kirby, the spokesperson for Admiral Michael Mullen, chairman of the more

 In a continuous flow of money, the money American taxpayers end up paying members of the Taliban and the financing of a volatile environment in Afghanistan. Private entrepreneurs pay the insurgents in the hope of reaching safety are very committed to provide. Meanwhile, American soldiers are charged at checkpoints operated by suspected rebels in order to obtain safe passage. In some cases, businesses run by former members of the Afghan Taliban, as the cousin of President Hamid Karzai to protect the passage of U.S. troops. Funding insurgents, with the voices of American helicopters to transport members of the Taliban in Afghanistan has led to widespread distrust of U.S. forces. Meanwhile, the dollar of U.S. taxpayer continues to fund the rebels to protect American troops so they can fight the more

 Despite the law on the reform of national health care, health care in the United States will remain sad for many Americans, have resulted in deaths and personal tragedies continue. A research group at Harvard University recently estimated that 2,266 veterans of the U.S. military have died in 2008 due to lack of health insurance. The figure is more than fourteen times the number of deaths suffered by U.S. troops in Afghanistan in 2008, more than double those who have died since the war began in 2001. Harvard researchers have concluded that 1.46 million veterinarians working age had no health coverage, increasing their mortality rate. The American Journal of Public Health published the results show that being insured increases the probability of an individual of dying by 40 more

Several controversial issues still plaguing the United States government and their version of the events of September 11, 2001. Who holds political power with the media elite would like to see the ongoing debates around the base unanswered 9 / 11 questions and differences disappear, despite mountains of evidence that suggest that citizens of the United States has said little much about the truth of the largest single day attack in the history of their homeland. Almost ten years after the events, there are still many unanswered questions: How did building 7 fall? What caused the destruction of the twin towers? Where is Osama Bin Laden? These are people who question the official version of 9 / 11 conspiracy theorists dangerous? more

In October 2009, under strong U.S. pressure, the government of Spain decided to limit its jurisdiction in cases of genocide and crimes against humanity, closing a window, the ultimate responsibility for crimes the most serious crimes committed by the most powerful nations on Earth. Under international law, these crimes of universal jurisdiction of any nation, whether his own people are victims or not. The logic is that crimes against humanity are crimes against each member of the human species, a crime against all.
 Spain had been an outbreak of heavy charges of crimes against the violators of human rights in Guatemala, Argentina, China, Israel and elsewhere. Most cases were against individuals linked to the right politically untouchable, like Chile's Augusto Pinochet, the Argentine military officer Adolfo Scilingo, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, the Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, the Former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and six of his principal advisers and, more recently, George W. former officials of the Bush more

Stanley McChrystal was appointed by President Barack Obama as commander support of the war in Afghanistan. Previously, he served as chief of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) headed by Vice President Dick Cheney.

Charter schools continue to stratify students by race, class, and sometimes language, and are more racially isolated than traditional public schools in virtually every state and large metropolitan area in the country.

Charter schools are often marketed as incubators of educational innovation, and they form a key feature of the Obama administration’s school reform agenda. But in some urban communities, they may be fueling de facto school segregation and undermining public education.

  A University of California–Los Angeles (UCLA) Civil Rights Project study, “Choice without Equity: Charter School Segregation and the Need for Civil Rights Standards,” reported that charter schools, particularly those in the western United States, are havens for white re-segregation from more

   TOP SECRET DUMBS (Deep Underground Military Bases)

Unknown to most Americans is a dark secret, and it's right under our noses. It's the reality of the existence of DEEP UNDERGROUND MILITARY BASES. These Underground bases get prominent play in dark rumors circulating about captured extraterrestrials and alien technology. The fringe culture rumors of underground alien-human shenanigans are in reality fed by leaks from questionable individuals, usually with intelligence connections. They are simply a ploy utility for the status quo.

The whole captured-alien-hardware story is just a highly elaborate hoax to discredit those exposing the reality of these bases. They are also a cover for the wholesale looting of the federal treasury by the corrupt and cynical secret government. After Hurricane Katrina left the gulf coast region totally devastated, there were many witnesses coming forward with reports of UNMNTF and UNISF Troops working alongside the Army of the Republic of Mexico Soldiers in the New Orleans area. When the day of Martial Law comes in America, the UNISF and UNMNTF troops located in Central America, in the US, and Canada will be deployed to help round up the millions of Americans whose names appear on the CIA Red List and the CIA Blue List, i.e., more 


  The victims of someone's War

For the second year (2010) in a row, more US soldiers killed themselves (468) than died in combat, reports Cord Jefferson January 27, 2011 on Excluding accidents and illness, 462 soldiers died in combat, while 468 committed suicide. Veterans who, after serving, suffer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are also at high risk. The study showed that 47 percent of veterans with PTSD had thoughts of suicide before they found help. The internal anguish a soldier experiences after returning from Iraq and Afghanistan can be far more severe than that experienced during live external combat.

  More than 2 million troops have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001. Those who do return often suffer from physical, psychological, and cognitive trauma. More than 40 per 100,000 men from the ages of 20 to 24 take their lives each year. Some deaths, which are not part of these statistics, are due to driving while under the influence of alcohol consumed due to depression. In 2008, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans were 75 percent more

The Woes of an American Drone Operator

A soldier sets out to graduate at the top of his class. He succeeds, and he becomes a drone pilot working with a special unit of the United States Air Force in New Mexico. He kills dozens of people. But then, one day, he realizes that he can't do it anymore.

For more than five years, Brandon Bryant worked in an oblong, windowless container about the size of a trailer, where the air-conditioning was kept at 17 degrees Celsius (63 degrees Fahrenheit) and, for security reasons, the door couldn't be opened. Bryant and his coworkers sat in front of 14 computer monitors and four keyboards. When Bryant pressed a button in New Mexico, someone died on the other side of the world.

The container is filled with the humming of computers. It's the brain of a drone, known as a cockpit in Air Force parlance. But the pilots in the container aren't flying through the air. They're just sitting at the more

 A Tale of Cocaine Trafficking, Sex Crime Charges, Extraordinary Rendition & Julian Assange

As reported at on November 14, 2012, two sources have alleged that the CIA has been engaging in cocaine trafficking in Chile to fund an $88 million campaign to defeat President Rafael Correa in Ecuador’s upcoming presidential election: former British Diplomat Craig Murray, and Chilean journalist Patricio Mery Bell.

It is no secret that the US wants to see Correa defeated and the presidential election scheduled next month in Ecuador will see whether he is. He has enacted policies the US government considers adverse to US interests including closing the US military base in Ecuador. Moreover, it is likely the US sees the defeat of Correa as key to getting its hands on Julian Assange.

    Corporate News Ignores Connections Between Extreme Weather and Global Warming

As extreme weather becomes increasingly common, it has received a fair share of coverage during network news broadcasts. Often missing from these reports, however, is any mention of climate change and its connection to extreme weather events. As Peter Hart reported for Extra!, the nightly news covers extreme weather events as unusual and newsworthy, but usually without explanation of climate change as an underlying cause.

A study by Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) found that extreme weather events in 2013 resulted in 450 news segments, of which only sixteen mentioned climate change. As for specific evening news shows, CBS Evening News only used terms like “global warming” and “greenhouse gases” in two of 114 extreme weather reports. ABC World News only mentioned climate change in eight reports out of more

   Private Military Companies

Globalization of trade and central banking has propelled private corporations to positions of power and control never before seen in human history.

Under advanced capitalism, the structural demands for a return on investment require an unending expansion of centralized capital in the hands of fewer and fewer people. The financial center of global capitalism is so highly concentrated that less than a few thousand people dominate and control $100 trillion of wealth.

 The few thousand people controlling global capital amounts to less than 0.0001 percent of the world’s population. They are the transnational capitalist class (TCC), who, as the capitalist elite of more
