Who Is Listening to Dick Cheney?

Dick Cheney is a former vice president who had an enormous effect on public policy, and therefore on history. He should be interviewed by media outlets. He should be asked tough questions about every single aspect of his tenure in the White House. We cannot pretend that Cheney does not belong in history books, or that he will vanish if we just wish hard enough.

The Much Celebrated Canadian Aid to Ukraine Military Was Worth a Pitiful $500,000

Another proof west will fight to the last Ukrainian.
Western leaders are encouraging Kiev to fight to extract maximum PR benefits for themselves, but won't actually do anything that significantly props up the Ukrainians...
It was reported recently that it cost Canada's Department of National Defence $1.6-million to airlift $5-million worth of surplus, non-lethal military equipment to bolster the Ukrainian army. Part of that exorbitant shipping bill was due to the fact the Harper government wanted to get the maximum public relations benefit by deploying parliamentarians and film crews to record the delivery.
As for the calculation on the $5-million value of the gear shipped, this was based on the original purchase price of the now well-used tents, sleeping bags and body armour. The resale value of this same gear through Army Surplus stores in Canada would probably amount to less than $500,000...

‘Groundbreaking’ Torture Charges Put US Rendition Tactics in Spotlight

Heartbreaking Monument Listing 66 Children Killed by Poroshenko's Civilian Bombings

...Children were caught in the crossfire. And they died from war, not by natural death. Their lives were just beginning, but they ended at the start. Logically, a normal government would declare mourning in the country. But we didn’t see this. Instead, they reported on television that Russian invaders had seized power in the city, as separatists shelled their own cities, killing themselves, and the Ukrainian army is protecting innocent people from terrorists. Everywhere, on all channels, the Ukrainian flag was hung with the inscription in two languages: “united country.” But there was already nothing left of this country. Then I realized that, no, we are not one country. If there is grief in the country, then the whole people would together experience this and grieve for the dead, especially the children. But there was no such grieving in Ukraine.

BREAKING: IMF Officials Helped Steal Ukraine Funds - US Investigating

Highly unusual for US Department of Justice to be investigating a pro-western oligarch like Igor Kolomoisky.
But apparently his PrivatBank hiding $1.8 billion of IMF funds was too much even for Washington.

The Criminalization of the Hunger Strike

Seven years ago, Barack Obama pledged to close down the detention center at Guantánamo Bay, telling the crowds that flocked to his campaign speeches that the United States must “restore habeas corpus” in order to “lead by example.” Though the Department of Defense is still weighing options on how to close the facility before Obama leaves office, the process seems to be going nowhere. Some of this blame rests on Congress, which has repeatedly refused to lift restrictions on moving detainees even though nearly half of them are cleared for transfer.

Why Russia Military Won't Intervene in Syria or Anywhere Else

It has no legal nor popular mandate to do so.
Moreover what's really needed to defeat ISIS and end the bloody war in Syria isn't for Moscow to intervene - but for the US and its clients to stop opposing Syrian, Iranian and Kurdish forces doing the majority of the fighting.
The most Russia can do is provide diplomatic, moral and some material backing as it is already doing.

Stiglitz: Inequality kills US' future

The French newspaper Le Monde published an interview with Joseph Stiglitz, where the Nobel Prize winner in Economic Sciences and a critic of the European austerity policy, reveals the reasons of economic inequality in the US and Europe as well as its political and social consequences.
In his new book "The Great Divide: Unequal Societies and What We Can Do About Them" Stiglitz names inequality to be the reason of the crisis in 2008.
As he noted, today it also impedes the economy recovery. "Inequality becomes a dangerous trap," the expert said.
