U.S. Reaction to the CIA Assassination Program / Politics / Al-Qeeda

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn June 23, 2009, Director of Central Intelligence Leon Panetta learned of a highly compartmentalized program to assassinate al Qaeda operatives that was launched by the CIA in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. When Panetta found out that the covert program had not been disclosed to Congress, he canceled it and then called an emergency meeting June 24 to brief congressional oversight committees on the program. Over the past week, many details of the program have been leaked to the press and the issue has received extensive media coverage.

From WW II To WW III: Global NATO And Remilitarized Germany / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRick Rozoff writes: The reunification of Germany in 1990 did not signify a centripetal trend in Europe but instead was an anomaly. The following year the Soviet Union was broken up into its fifteen constituent federal republics and the same process began in Yugoslavia, with Germany leading the charge in hastening on and recognizing the secession of Croatia and Slovenia from the nation that grew out of the destruction of World War I and again of World War II.

Strategic Calculus and the Afghan War / Politics / Afghanistan

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. and allied forces began their first major offensive in Afghanistan under the command of U.S. Gen David Petraeus and Gen. Stanley McChrystal this July. Inevitably, coalition casualties have begun to mount. Fifteen British soldiers have died within the past 10 days — eight of whom were killed within a 24-hour period — in Helmand province, where the operation is taking place. On July 6, seven U.S. soldiers were killed in separate attacks across Afghanistan within a single day, and on July 12 another four U.S. soldiers were reported killed in Helmand.

HR 2749: A Stealth Agribusiness Empowering Act / Politics / Agricultural Commodities

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmerica is the truest example of what George Bernard Shaw meant when he said "Democracy is a form of government that substitutes election by the incompetent many for the appointment by the corrupt few." Obama is upholding the tradition and then some.

In fact, in less than six months, he's done the impossible. With congressional Democrats, he's compiled a worse record than even his fiercest critics feared, worse than George Bush, straight across the board on both domestic and foreign policies that include:

The Minimum Wage is Maximum Economic Stupidity / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a free market, demand is always a function of price: the higher the price, the lower the demand. What may surprise most politicians is that these rules apply equally to both prices and wages. When employers evaluate their labor and capital needs, cost is a primary factor. When the cost of hiring low-skilled workers moves higher, jobs are lost. Despite this, minimum wage hikes, like the one set to take effect later this month, are always seen as an act of governmental benevolence. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Government Bets on Positive Spin to Save Bankrupt Banks / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Just when you thought the U.S. banking system had regained its footing, the reality is that a carefully woven federal-government PR campaign may actually be masking the next phase of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

Indeed, it’s what’s just out of sight that has some analysts and economists scared to death.

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJuly 12 —After the tragic events of July 5 in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China, it would be useful to look more closely into the actual role of the US Government’s ”independent“ NGO, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). All indications are that the US Government, once more acting through its “private” Non-Governmental Organization, the NED, is massively intervening into the internal politics of China.

Why have we Abandoned Free Markets? / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Michael_Pento

It astonishes me to see how quickly this country has embraced a socialist mentality and how readily it has accepted the belief that the source of our problems was an unfettered free market. Perhaps it is because those in power do not understand what the term free market truly means. If they indeed understood what a free market entails, then it would be impossible for them to lay blame upon it.
