UPROOTED PALESTINIANS: SALAM ALQUDS ALAYKUM

Faced with an increase in demand but no extra funding from the European Central Bank, the Greek government ordered banks closed.

“This decision led the ECB today to limit the liquidity of Greek banks and forced the central bank of Greece to propose a bank holiday and a restriction on bank withdrawals,” said Tsipras in a televised address.
Greek lawmakers approved Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ request for a July 5 referendum on Greece’s creditors’ latest bailout terms. However, Greece’s current bailout expires Tuesday and without an extension the country faces defaulting on its US$1.8 billion…

Red lines being drawn by Russia over the USA’s attempts to destroy Syria

Russia Promises «Economic And Military» Aid To Syria As US Refloats Assad «Chemical Weapons» Fake Evidence

It’s been a while since the US State Department, with the help of the UK-funded and US-supported Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, floated doctored YouTube clips of hundreds of Syrians dead as a result of Assad’s chemical attacks. In fact, it has been almost exactly two years since the last time the US nearly launched an all out proxy war in Syria, one involving an axis of western powers and Qatar (whose natural gas this whole charade is all about) against another axis of Russia and China who were supportive of the Syrian government. Luckily, a last minute snafu by John Kerry allowed a de-escalation, which in turn resulted in the appearance of ISIS, whose entire purpose has been, as leaked Pentagon memos have revealed, to topple Assad.

And with collective…

Way to Go Vladimir Putin Gobsmacks Uncle Sam … Again

by MIKE WHITNEY

Here’s the scoop: Two days before the swaggering Sec-Def touched down in Germany, Gazprom announced that it was putting the finishing touches on a massive deal that would double the amount of Russian gas flowing to Germany via a second Nord Stream pipeline. The shocking announcement made it look like the clueless Carter had no idea what was going on and that his efforts to isolate Russia were a complete flop. And, make no mistake; the deal is huge, big enough to change the geopolitical calculus of the entire region. Robert Morley explains what’s going on in a recent article at The Trumpet:

“Once this pipeline is finished, almost all of Eastern Europe can be completely cut out of the gas picture. There will be no need for any gas to transit through Ukraine, Poland, Romania, Belarus…

The biggest mistake in American policy, foreign and domestic, is looking at everything as war

UPROOTED PALESTINIANS: SALAM ALQUDS ALAYKUM

America’s Got War

«TomDispatch» –  War on drugsWar on poverty. War in Afghanistan. War in Iraq. War on terror. The biggest mistake in American policy, foreign and domestic, is looking at everything as war. When a war mentality takes over, it chooses the weapons and tactics for you.  It limits the terms of debate before you even begin. It answers questions before they’re even asked.

When you define something as war, it dictates the use of the military (or militarized police forces, prisons, and other forms of coercion) as the primary instruments of policy.  Violence becomes the means of decision, total victory the goal.  Anyone who suggests otherwise is labeled a dreamer, an appeaser, or even a traitor.

War, in short, is the great simplifier — and it may even work when you’re fighting existential military threats (as in World War II).  But it…
