Peace Is a Word That the West Has Taken From the Afghans With no end of war in sight, this past year has been the deadliest year for civilians since the United States first began to bomb Afghanistan in 2001. The peace talks in Qatar and Russia will not immediately result in any direct outcome. Afghanistan is damaged beyond belief, its own future less important to the external parties than their own petty gains.

Fear the Mustache: Why Bolton Makes Even Donald Trump Nervous Bolton's record is clear. But so are his words, not only his speeches, but also his deeply informative book -- Surrender Is Not An Option (2008). Few U.S. elected officials have the guts to disagree with this disagreeable worldview. They salute the flag and send the bombers to spread the stars and stripes across the globe.

Will the U.S. Start a War Against Iran? It is unlikely that the United States will find any significant allies among the Iranians. A war against Iran at this time would be a war against a stretch of the world that has seen too many wars in recent times, that would like to open the door to peace. Trump -- with Bolton and Pence -- seek to provoke a war. These are dangerous men with a dangerous agenda.

The People of Palestine Are on the March In each of the punctual bombings of Gaza since Operation Hot Winter (2008), Israel has targeted Gaza's power plant and its water sources (wells, water towers, sewage pipelines and sewage treatment plants). Millions of dollars of damage are done to Gaza's infrastructure, which then cannot be repaired because Israel prevents materials from entering the enclave.

Notes From the Streets of Venezuela -- The People Are Resilient in the Face of Foreign Intervention The word "Chavista" has a resonance. It refers to those women and men who are loyal to Chavez and to the Bolivarian Revolution. It is not uncommon to see t-shirts with Chavez on them, his image ubiquitous on the walls. These are not people who have become rich or become powerful. They are part of a movement to chip away at hundreds of years of inequality.

Imagine a World Without War, Where Migrants Are Welcomed, Where Women Are Not Targets It was shocking what ISIS did to the Yazidi community -- the capture of women who were then forced to be sex slaves, the rape of thousands. It is what catapulted Nadia Murad to the headlines, her bravery moving her from being a survivor of horrific violence to being a brave spokesperson for justice and against war.

You can smell teargas in the streets as oil industry squabbles At the G20, the United States and China dialed down the temperature over trade but did not settle the long-term grievances each side has against the other. At the OPEC+ meeting, Russia and Saudi Arabia agreed to cut production and raise the price of oil despite pressure from the US and others to keep oil prices low. At neither meeting did the major powers find solutions to their problems.

Disregard for world opinion defines the US government Last month, Pew Research Center released a poll that looked at the image of Donald Trump and the United States in 25 countries around the world. In most countries, neither Trump nor the United States come off well. Seventy percent of the populations in these countries have no confidence in Trump.

It's Not Just Trump -- Saudi Arabia Has Been Bribing the US with Arms Sales for Years Saudi Arabia is in the midst of an internal review of the death of Khashoggi. Whispers from inside the kingdom suggest that the final report will say that this was a "rogue" operation, a word introduced into this incident by U.S. President Donald Trump. Trump, who has bet a great deal on Saudi Arabia, has been caught flatfooted.

The knife in Iran's back: Trump opens door to chaos Trump's belligerence, the refusal of key countries to abide by Trump's sanctions (including the European Union, but mainly Russia and China), as well as the internal pressure in Iran could very likely create the conditions for a military clash in the waters around Iran. This is a very dangerous situation.

Trump and the Russian Hand U.S. political debate is now structured around the phrase "Russian interference in the U.S. election." There has been no comparable report on racist voter suppression or misogyny. In fact, there is no discussion about these issues at all.

Empire in Decline, Really? The American War Machine Continues to Grow The headquarters of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, which oversees operations in Asia, is located in Hawaii. The people of Africa, Asia and Latin America do not want the United States' footprint to be placed so heavily on their soil. It is one thing to have to tolerate bases and joint exercises. It is another to allow the full weight of U.S. imperialism on one's soil.

Trump Has Found a Way to Make Enemies of Breastfeeding Mothers It is plainly obvious that Trump's government is deeply misogynistic. It is not going to allow women to drive this debate. But this is a long-term problem for U.S. policy making -- a problem of being driven by corporations rather than by its own democracy.

America's Reporter: the Hersh Method Over his long career, Hersh has worked for major U.S. publications such as The New York Times and for smaller outlets such as the Dispatch News Service. He did not care where he wrote as long as he could report with freedom and write with his usual bluntness. It was not prestige that Hersh was after, but the story.

How Trump is about to send world oil prices soaring even higher Even if Iran is on solid ground, it would have a difficult time closing the Strait, which -- at its narrowest -- has a width of 55 kilometers. The US naval base in Bahrain is entirely there to keep the Strait open. The possibility of a small war or even a big war is not so far off.

For All His Bluster, Trump is Powerless Against NATO Allies -- Here's Why Is Trump really going to starve NATO and the European alliance? There is no evidence of this. Trump has increased the U.S. military budget by gargantuan amounts -- to the near astronomic levels of close to $800 billion. Trump increased military spending by close to 10 percent. There is no hesitancy to spend money on the military, no desire to shift some of that treasure toward those who are out of work and desperate.

The War of Hunger That Afflicts the World's Poor A stunning 40 percent of all food is lost or wasted. There is more than enough food produced on the planet for all the billions of its inhabitants. Yet, those who have no, or little, money cannot afford to feed themselves. Those without property are fated to starve. The food that cannot be bought is thrown away. War, Climate Change, Money -- these are the engines of hunger.

Trump and His Tariffs rump has now announced a tariff policy on aluminium and steel, which he hopes will redouble efforts by the manufacturing sector to kick-start a languid economy. Trump framed his tariff policy around the framework of national security rather than economics. Other powers, mainly China, he said, were "assaulting our country."

The American Experiment Has Failed in Afghanistan The American project has decidedly failed in Afghanistan. Others are now edging their way into the country, pushing and prodding to see which way matters will turn. Meanwhile, pay some heed to the Afghan people. For them, choices are few; grief is a way of life.

Trump, Year One This year's midterm elections will be fundamental for the resistance to Trump. Each and every one of the 435 members of the House of Representatives will be up for re-election, as will a third of the U.S. Senators. A majority of the Governors in the States will face elections. If the Democratic Party could whittle away at the Republican control of these offices, Trump will be weakened. But it is unlikely.
