Ukraine regime change: A bad deal for the working class The U.S.-E.U.-hatched regime change in Ukraine only benefits a very small minority on both sides of the Atlantic and is a lose-lose for the working masses in Ukraine, European Union, and the United States.

Shooting the Messenger While condemning the WikiLeaks as an "unprecedented violation" and "illegal act" that has put the lives of many U.S. diplomats including some of author's former colleagues in harm's way, they're credited for exposing the ruse of both Bush and Obama administrations seeking a diplomatic solution with Iran.

Iran's Missiles Not an Existential Threat An article titled 'Iran's missiles not an existential threat, study says' published in Haaretz yesterday is a Cliffs Notes guide for anyone trying to understand Israel's true intentions and concerns as it obliterates the deceptive victim fascia so often portrayed through the Western media and reveals its genuine regional ambitions.

Freeman's Withdrawal and the 'Lobby' Ambassador Freeman's withdrawal may be considered a victory by the 'Lobby' but it is a shameful and deplorable defeat for the American people and their system of government.

Time for behavior adjustment – Ours To succeed with his pro-diplomacy agenda, president-elect Barack Obama must give up all attempts at gaining any leverage over Iran through sanctions because no "combination of incentives and disincentives" or any meaningful negotiation to resolve differences can even begin until all illegal sanctions already imposed are removed and Iran's nuclear dossier is returned to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Birth Pangs of a New World Disorder The deal signed with Poland today is a continuation of a disastrous American foreign policy which threatens to nullify every international security agreement reached in the last four decades.

Are you better off than five years ago? The question each and every one us must now ask is this – Do we continue on as mere spectators and then read the bleak consequences of our inaction in yet another opinion poll five years from now? The answer stares us in the face every time we pull into a gas station.

Fool me twice In a Haaretz interview published today and titled "Is an attack on Iran a big Risk?" Patrick Clawson seems to weigh the possible outcome scenarios of a hostile attack on Iran in the same cavalier and careless manner a prospective violator would consider speeding his vehicle down a freeway.

'In search of truth' It should come as no surprise that any reputable and unbiased media organization looking for expert Iran analysis would pay more than just lip service to vetting its sources and actually check the credentials of their pundits. But a cursory search for the truth behind Mr. Daioleslam's background in form of a simple Google search seems to challenge any notion of such scholarly prowess or dexterity.

Casualties of War The prevailing apathy toward those who govern us through fear and neglecting the idea of holding power to account as informed members of civil society has been the greatest casualty of this war.

America's Moral Deficit Trita Parsi begins his 2/27/08 opinion piece in the Inquirer titled 'Negotiating with Iran without Betraying Human Rights' by slapping the wrist of the current administration for its "apparent disregard for the expressed wishes of Iranian human-rights defenders". That warning may have fallen on some sympathetic ears even as early as six years ago. But unfortunately that is no longer the case.

Straight Facts Timing of this so-called 'provocation' incident in the Persian Gulf just before Mr. Bush's trip to the region was also very convenient as he went on reminding the world and all the client Arab states in the region during a press conference in Israel yesterday that they must fear this menacing "threat to the world peace" and prepare for a joint U.S./Israeli action to deal with Iran.

NIE Report: Inventing Facts Many have been quick to characterize yesterday's NIE report on Iran as a long overdue "Honest Intel" that will suck the air out of warmongers' sails because it clearly states "with high confidence that in fall of 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program". But haven't report after report issued by IAEA in the many years since repeatedly confirmed non-existence of such nuclear weapons program in Iran?

No Rights No Peace Shirin Ebadi's declaration that "the United States cannot have the right to deal with Iran outside the framework of international law" and insistence that Iran must abandon its rights under an international treaty to enrich uranium exposes her naive unawareness of the very facts leading to Iran's referral to the UN Security Council.

Saber rattling us to the next disaster Neither Bush nor Cheney believes in obtaining a congressional authorization to start another war. What they seek is a convincing alibi which is proving harder to attain this time around but not for lack of trying. A report published by The Observer claims US military is pressuring interrogators questioning Iraqi insurgents to press for incriminating evidence that points to Iran.

H.R. 1400: A recipe for war The word "diplomatic" is derived from "diplomacy" which is the art of international mediation or negotiation for the purpose of maintaining peaceful relations. Imposing sanctions on a country to enhance diplomatic efforts is as absurd a notion as bombing to preserve peace or engaging in sexual assault to preserve virginity.

Lynching at Columbia Apparent from the crowd of cheering onlookers who turned out in droves to execute the verbal equivalent of such hideous practice on the Iranian president, not much has changed in the last few decades. Just as the perpetrators of those acts would reinterpret them so they would not be seen as less than civilized, the modern executioner of this hanging hid behind an academic faade and his title as a University president.
