Is a Nuclear Deal with Iran Being Stalled Because the West Can’t Pay Tehran’s Money Back?

From Global Research

Are Iranian financial assets and funds really frozen or are they also being utilized as loans or collateral? In other words, have Iran’s frozen funds been channeled elsewhere by the US and the EU to make up for their own economic problems and the economic war against Russia? Do the financial liabilities of those holding Iranian funds exceed their financial assets? More simply asked: can the countries that froze Iran’s money pay Tehran its money back or are they stalling, because they cannot return all the money that was frozen under sanctions?

No, ‘Je Suis Charleston’?: The De-Politicization of Black Oppression

From Black Agenda Report 
By Alamu Baraka

The statements from world leaders condemning the terrorist attack and calling on U.S. Authorities to crack down on the white nationalist terror networks developing in the U.S.?

Journalists and War


by Thierry Meyssan 

From Voltaire Non-Aligned Press Network

The system is such that the journalists refuse to recognise that they have been fooled, and thus become propagandists who, in their turn, will repeat what everyone knew from the start to be a lie. De facto, these professionals who think they are honest, even though they are using fashionable rhetoric, are working to spread the lie.

EU: End Station. Bitte Alle Aussteigen

In light of the economic and political collapse of Greece, I am re-posting an article that I wrote on 14 March 2014. Yet again, Adventures of Der Kosmonaut has consistently provided the most advanced analysis of global political and international developments. There's very little to add as most events unfolding today were first reported on this blog more than 5 years ago. I have made some minor changes from the original article. No one could've predicted 5 years ago that the USA and Germany would have launched a Fascist coup in Ukraine to destabilize Russia. Moreover, it appears that another casualty of the Fascist coup is the strategic partnership developed between France and Russia. Finally, I was off by two years the break up and collapse of the EU. In 2010 I gave the expiry date of 2013. Cynicism got the better of me. The EU will break up by the end of 2015.

A question
Is it really Smart?

Stupid Methods (of) Authoritarian Reactionary Totalitarianism
