The Implications of the Mumbai Attacks: CRG E-Newsletter

Dear Global Research Member and Newsletter Subscriber

In the course of the last week, the World has witnessed the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, resulting in the death of more than 150 people. The implications of this dramatic event are farreaching. Moreover, the Mumbai attacks serve to create political divisions between India and Pakistan.

Meanwhile financial markets have continued to tumble. 

This issue of the Global Research E-Newletter includes a selection of lead articles on a number of key issues:

-Unanswered questions regarding the Mumbai attacks,

-The formation of the Obama cabinet; analysis of “political continuity” under an Obama administration,

-The evolving humanitarian crisis in Palestine,

-The militarization of Sub-Saharan Africa, America’s hidden war in Somalia,

-The recruitment of “child soldiers” to fight America’s wars.

-Fraud and manipulation underlying the financial crisis,

-The social and economic backlash of the financial meltdown: impacts on people’s lives, international trade in potential jeopardy.

It is our hope that the endeavors of Global Research authors and staff, will contribute to curbing the tide of media disinformation, ultimately with a view to democratizing the financial system, eradicating poverty and and establishing an enduring World peace.   

It is, therefore, important that the articles published by Global Research reach a broad readership.
