By: Pravda

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn August 6 and 9, the world marked the 65th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

U.S. Iraq Withdrawal Limited Options / Politics / Iraq War

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is August 2010, which is the month when the last U.S. combat troops are scheduled to leave Iraq. It is therefore time to take stock of the situation in Iraq, which has changed places with Afghanistan as the forgotten war. This is all the more important since 50,000 troops will remain in Iraq, and while they may not be considered combat troops, a great deal of combat power remains embedded with them. So we are far from the end of the war in Iraq. The question is whether the departure of the last combat units is a significant milestone and, if it is, what it signifies. Read full article...

Ron Paul on Washington's Idea of Fiscal Restraint / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

It has been months now since the new healthcare reform bill was passed into law. As is so typical, this massive piece of legislation was passed with a sense of urgency so acute that leadership declared America could not afford to wait until legislators, their staff and the general public had time to thoroughly read the bill.

How can the U.S. Win the Afghan War By Killing Mainly Civilians? / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Pravda

In July, 45 soldiers from the international contingent, 33 of them Americans, have been killed in Afghanistan. In June, the loss amounted to 100 people, the worst month for 9 years of war. “We are experiencing the most difficult moment in the war,” Brigadier General Joseph Blotts, a representative of ISAF forces, said at a press conference.

Pakistan Floods Disaster and U.S. Humanitarian Warfare / Politics / Pakistan

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFelicity Arbuthnot writes: .. to wade through slaughter ... and shut the gates of mercy on mankind." Thomas Gray (1716-1771.)

The scale of the disaster caused by the floods in Pakistan, is barely comprehensible. As Juan Cole has written, expressing near disbelief : "The submerged area of the country is as big as the United Kingdom, fourteen million Pakistanis are affected, two million are homeless." Six million need immediate relief, according to the UN., and thirty six thousand are suffering from acute diarrhoeal symptoms, with cholera already diagnosed. 1,600 are reported dead, with the number certain to multiply. Famine is a real possibility.

Massive Widespread Economic Pain Across America / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

the United States is not kaput it is certainly withering away even as a rich upper class enjoys all the things that money buys.  There is massive, widespread economic pain inflicting a huge fraction of Americans who are unemployed, underemployed, relying on food stamps, losing their homes, and who are feeling totally insecure financially.  This maintains sluggish consumer spending that makes necessary economic growth impossible.

U.S. China Conflict, Moving From War of Words to Talk of War / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Rick_Rozoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRelations between the U.S. and China have been steadily deteriorating since the beginning of the year when Washington confirmed the completion of a $6.4 billion arms deal with Taiwan and China suspended military-to-military ties with the U.S. in response.

In January the Chinese Defense Ministry announced the cessation of military exchanges between the two countries and the Foreign Ministry warned of enforcing sanctions against American companies involved with weapons sales to Taiwan.

How to Thwart the Assassins of the American Dream / Politics / US Politics

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleArianna Huffington's new book, Third World America: How Our Politicians are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream, paints a grim picture of the State of the Union:

"Every day, Americans, faced with layoffs and tough economic times, are forced to use their credit cards to pay for essentials such as food, housing, and medical care -- the costs of which continue to escalate. But, as their debt rises, they find it harder to keep up with their payments. When they don't, banks, trying to offset losses in other areas, turn around, hike interest rates, and impose all manner of fees and penalties..." Third World America, (P. 77)

Social Insecurity / Politics / Social Issues

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePaul Cwik writes: Oh joy, oh joy! It has finally arrived! You wouldn't believe how excited I was to receive a letter from the Social Security Administration. In the letter, they dutifully showed me how much taxable income I have ever made. (Is it me, or is there something really creepy about that?) They showed me how much I have paid in taxes and how much my employer also "paid." Then they showed me how much my payment would be if I retire at full retirement (67 years old — not 62 or 65 like you may have heard) and if I delay "collecting" until I turn 70.

Investing for Mexico’s Social and Economic Collapse / Politics / Mexico

By: Sean_Brodrick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a war next door, and our neighbor may be losing. I’m talking about Mexico’s ongoing battle with violent drug gangs. The northern parts of Mexico are becoming lawless, and the drug gangs are taking steps to set themselves up as de facto governments. This could have big implications for Mexico and for its oil production. And Mexico is our number 2 supplier of imported oil.

Unintended Consequences of Iran Trade Sanctions / Politics / Iran

By: J_M_Finegold_Catalan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the Iranian government continues to resist American political pressure to abandon its nuclear program, the United States and her allies have once again turned to economic sanctions as a method of enforcing their will — or, at least, so they intend. On June 9, 2010, the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 1929, which, among other things, bans the sale of armaments and the provision of military training to the Iranian military, and prohibits travel for certain blacklisted Iranian citizens. Unsatisfied, the United States and the European Union intends to enact even tougher economic sanctions of their own in the near future. Even worse, these are only additions to sanctions that have existed since the Revolution of 1979.
