Reclaiming Democracy--Again Representative democracy is not real democracy. It rather is a form of shirking responsibility.

What "global' financial crisis? There is and never was a 'global' economic crisis. The world is increasingly wealthy and multipolar, and this is the Real Spring that is being ignored by the imperially dominated media, and deliberately so.

An unholy coalition of perceived "interests': USA, Saudi Arabia & Al Qaeda "- As far as the Salafi Jihadists are concerned, the longer-term interests of Iran, Israel, Syria and USA are currently aligned. It is surprising that there is no apparent cooperation in this area.

An Emerging Rupture in Iran With the predominantly foreign fantasy regarding a "Green' Iranian revolution basically over, it is easier to focus attention on divisions within Iran's dominant political factions. A rupture appears to be manifesting itself more and more between the followers of President Ahmadinejad and Supreme Leader Khamenei.

How the US Lost Iraq to Iran with only a few weeks to go before the stated aim to "withdraw' from iraq, the us administration is in a bit of a mess. the fog of war and propaganda have together obscured events in iraq. but in effect, the costly war has resulted in the americans handing iraq over to iran on a silver platter. what follows is a description of how this has come about, and how this is linked to the sanctions.

the times they are a-changin' western power is in decline. the east has decoupled from the west. so has the south. non-western countries are consistently growing faster than the west, and they trade more with each other than with the west. sanctions against iran are doomed to fail.

the trouble with capitalism once in a while the capitalist system requires a fire, a crisis, to shake it and get rid of the bad fruits, the reckless, and to reward the prudent. But when the crisis rewards the reckless bankers and punishes the rest of society, then a political crisis of legitimacy emanates, and there will be a face-off between economic and political elites, if such a distinction is indeed true.

What is next for Iran? As we watched the demonstrations and sheer bravery of Iranians on the streets over the past few days, I could not help but get a pang of anxiety over a growing propensity to violence within a movement that appears to be devoid of a unifying ideology or shared goals.

The US' obsession with Iran: What should a 'good' Iranian do? Are there any Martians here? I have felt like a Martian for a while because the whole thing seems just ridiculous. The biggest military bully just will not stop threatening Iran, as if we did not have enough problems of our own to sort out with a rabid theocracy, a region burning with fundamentalist fire, and an existential threat from a dangerous, nuclear-armed Israel.

Ahmadinejad's 'victory' saps the Islamic Republic The Islamic Republic needs to seize the moment to respond to Iranians and the wider world before it traps itself into becoming the Islamic Republic of the Revolutionary Guards of Iran, an isolated military dictatorship akin to North Korea or Myanmar. The latter scenario is unfortunately looking more likely at the moment.

Ahmadinejad's romantic revisionism An exploration into the psyche of schizophrenic western support for Zionism despite its racist and colonialist nature, and an exposition of the roots of a new form of Holocaust revisionism.
