PutinIs Putin Planning a November Surprise in Aleppo? Coinciding with US Elections?

By Stephen Lendman, November 03 2016

An unnamed Western intelligence source believes Russia is “on the brink of a major military assault on Aleppo.” If so, expect resumption of aerial operations, suspended for 16 days – a November surprise, coinciding with American elections when US public attention awaits their results.


Wall Street and the Pentagon: Pre-Mature Political and Military Ejaculations

By Prof. James Petras, November 03 2016

Brazil and Argentina, the most powerful and richest countries in South America and the Philippines, Washington’s most strategic military platform in Southeast Asia, were the objects of intense US political operations in the run-up to 2016. In each instance, Wall Street and the Pentagon secured smashing successes leading to premature ejaculations over the ‘new golden era’ of financial pillage and unfettered military adventures.  Unfortunately, the early ecstasy has turned to agony.


The EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), Backroom Ministrations and Secret Negotiations…

By Jim Miles, November 03 2016

CETA is an agreement that reflects all that was negative about NAFTA.  It provides the promise that further agreements (TTIP, TTP) will provide the same investor dispute mechanism that supersedes national sovereignty.  It further disenfranchises the average citizen while enriching and empowering the corporate elite, again promising more for the future.  It displays all the hollow rhetoric that is manipulated through the media, generally meaningless undefined platitudes without context or reference to the realities of existing agreements.

Suing Saudi Arabia for its Alleged Role in 9/11: Overturning Sovereign Immunity in US Courts

By Dr. Binoy Kampmark, November 03 2016

It was momentous on one fundamental level. Here was the President of the United States, Barack Obama, holding the torch for a wretched ally the politicians on the Hill and others have had reservations over for many years.  Saudi Arabia, ever the thorn and asset of US interests, facing the grief of families who lost members on September 11, 2001. This, the same ally whose theocratic bent remains the most bruising of obstacles in any claims that the US is open to a global democratic experiment.


South Africa’s Deprivations and Depravations Revealed in Jacob Zuma’s Meltdown

By Prof. Patrick Bond, November 03 2016

This week could well be remembered as South Africa’s most important political inflection point since the September 2008 ousting of sitting President Thabo Mbeki by his own party, the African National Congress (ANC). His main tormenter then was Jacob Zuma, who – following a brief handover period – has ruled the country in an increasingly dubious manner since May 2009. But several contradictions have exploded in Zuma’s face.
