Wikileaks, U.S. Iraq War Genocide Civilian Deaths Could Top 1million / Politics / Iraq War

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNicolas Davies writes: The documents on the U.S. War in Iraq published by Wikileaks contained data on 15,000 Iraqis killed in incidents that were previously unreported in the Western media or by the Iraqi Health Ministry, and therefore not counted in compilations of reported Iraqi war deaths by Iraqbodycount.org. The Western media are dutifully adding these 15,000 deaths to their so-called "estimates" of the total numbers of Iraqis killed in the war. This is deceptive. What the unreported deaths really demonstrate is that the passive methodology of these body counts is a woefully inadequate way to try and estimate the number of deaths in a war zone. These 15,000 deaths are only the tip of an iceberg of hundreds of thousands of unreported Iraqi deaths that have already been detected by more serious and scientific epidemiological studies, but the U.S. and British governments have successfully suppressed these studies by confusing the media and the public about their methods and accuracy.

The Secret War Between Wikileaks and the Pentagon / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt happened on a Friday, the anniversary of the first US casualties of the Vietnam War way back in l957. It was also the anniversary, in l964, of French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre’s announcement that he was turning down the Nobel Prize. He later sat as a judge on Bertrand Russell’s Vietnam War Crimes Tribunal, which indicted that conflict’s carnage and lies.

French Students Instead of Rioting Should Celebrate Pension Reform / Politics / Pensions & Retirement

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrançois Melese writes: Images of angry French students burning vehicles and demonstrating in the streets fill the world's TV screens. Sadly, several young demonstrators have been seriously injured. French youth may be gathering in the streets, and yet the fight is not over education or job-training policies but about a pension reform that postpones retirement.

Wikileaks Nukes Pentagon's Lies and Deceit on Iraq and Afghanistan Wars / Politics / Iraq War

By: Pravda

Wikileaks may cause irreparable damage to the United States as it continues to declassify the information about the activities of US and allied troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. On October 19th, the Pentagon urged mass media not to distribute the information which appears on Wikileaks not to make the controversial website obtain the reputation of a reliable source of information.

Russian State's Strangehold Over Economy Needs to be Cut / Politics / Russia

By: Pravda

The Russian economic model must change to ensure stable economic growth to the country. Nearly all developing economies of the world have retrieved the growth which they had prior to the economic crisis. Russia is expected to achieve the same by 2011. The Russian economy mostly depends on oil and gas, and the state shows two much presence in the economy - these are two biggest problems of the Russian economy, according to Newsweek magazine.

The Killing and Reviving of the American Dream / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUSA Today loves to run lifestyle features that purport to show how we are living, what we are doing, what we like and what we don't like — premised on a collectivist assumption that all our preferences can be tracked and characterized with these aggregate claims.

Most of the time, these features are silly. It's not really true that we are all listening to Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, or tweeting what we had for breakfast.

Waves of Strikes Across Europe, the Decay of Democracy / Politics / Social Issues

By: Barry_Grey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe growing struggles of the working class in Europe and internationally against mass unemployment and government austerity policies are exposing the reality behind the façade of bourgeois democracy. In every country, the government, whether conservative or nominally “left,” is cutting jobs and wages and slashing social programs in complete disregard for the overwhelming opposition of the population.

Vive la France Vive la RĂ©sistance, French Fight Back Against Oligarchy of Racketeers / Politics / Social Issues

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThank God for France. While American liberals tremble at the idea of sending an angry e mail to congress for fear that their name will appear on the State Department's list of terrorists, French workers are on the front lines choking on tear gas and fending off billyclubs in hand-to-hand combat with Sarkozy's Gendarmerie. That's because the French haven't forgotten their class roots. When the government gets too big for its britches, people pour out onto to the streets and Paris becomes a warzone replete with overturned Mercedes Benzs, smashed storefront windows, and stacks of smoldering tires issuing pillars of black smoke. This is what democracy looks like when it hasn't been emasculated by decades of propaganda and consumerism. Here's a blurp from the trenches:

Iran Begins a New Phase in Uranium Exploration / Politics / Iran

By: Submissions

Tehran writes: Iran’s nuclear chief announced beginning of a massive operation to explore for uranium located in central and southern parts of the country, areas presumed to hold large quantities of the said element. 

Ali Akbar Salehi, Director of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI), told reporters the country seeks to fulfill its long-term commitments in uranium mining and reach self-sufficiency in that field. ‘We have divided the country into several regions and in each one we are doing some research. But most of our exploration activities are being conducted in the central and southern parts of the country,’ MNA quoted Salehi as saying.

China Rejects G20 New Trade Currency Rules and Limits / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Submissions

Tehran writes: China rejects any form of rules on currency policy and exports limits among world’s industrialized nations, Reuters reported from South Korea where the G20 meeting is being held this weekend.

Many observers expect the US treasury secretary Timothy Geithner is going to pressure China to accept a new system of currency valuation in which Beijing would agree to allow its currency fluctuate freely and not be pegged to US dollar like the way it’s currently. The move - if accepted by China - should make Chinese industrial products more expensive and therefore reduce trade imbalance in US favor.

U.S. China Currency War Drifting towards Military Conflict / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe United States conducts monetary policy the same way it conducts foreign policy; unilaterally. When Fed chairman Ben Bernanke signaled last week that he was planning to restart his bond purchasing program (Quantitative Easing) he didn't consult with allies at the IMF, the G-20 or the WTO. He simply issued his edict, and that was that. The fact that the Fed's policy will flood emerging markets with cheap capital, pushing up the value of their currencies and igniting inflation, is of no concern to Bernanke. He operates on the same theory as former Treasury Secretary John Connally who breezily quipped to a group of euro finance ministers, “The dollar is our currency, but your problem.”

How the U.S. and U.K. Lost the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Mahboob A. Khawaja writes: Wars are planned, financed and fought by governments, not by groups or ordinary people. Wars are based on political agendas bent on complete control over resources, people and territory. Most wars have multiple reasons, domestic, foreign and global outreach. The U.S.-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are fought to maintain US domination worldwide, to occupy the untapped natural resources of the Middle East, in particular oil and gas, and to protect the value of U.S. dollar as a stable international reserve currency.

I mean financial bankruptcy. And don't take my word for it.

Orwell Targets Bernanke: An Unteachable Hole in the Air / Politics / US Politics

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFriday, October 15, 2010, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke delivered a dishonest speech: "Monetary Policy Tools and Objectives in a Low-Inflation Environment." What follows is not a critique of the talk, since that would be redundant. Please see one of my recent articles "Exploiting Bernanke" (September 21, 2010), which discussed the anticipated speech of October 15, 2010. Also see, "Central Bankers are Paid to Lie - Buy Corn" (October 5, 2010), which showed how Federal Reserve Chairman Arthur Burns fibbed his way through the 1970s. Investors who either believed him or were not adept at translating signals from the real world suffered.

Speculators getting rich at your expense / Politics / Social Issues

By: Akhil_Khanna

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSpeculators are individuals or organizations who place bets on outcomes of certain events likely to take place within a defined time period and earn huge profits on their occurrence. A simple speculation transaction would be to place bets on the results of a sports match. Team A and Team B are playing a football match. 10 people place a bet of $10,000 each that Team A will win and 20 people place a bet of $10,000 each on Team B winning the match. So we have bets of $1,00,000/- on Team A winning and $ 2,00,000/- on Team B winning. If Team A wins, the 10 people who won the bet would get $20,000/- each ($2,00,000 / 10) and the people who bet on Team B would loose all their money. Similarly if Team B wins, the 20 people who won the bet would get $5,000/- ($1,00,000 / 20) each and those who bet on Team A winning will loose all their money.
