How the Saudi Oil Field Attack Overturned America's Applecart In many ways it doesn't really matter who -- Houthis in Yemen? Iranians? Shiites in Iraq? -- launched those missiles and drones at Saudi Arabia. Whoever did it changed the rules of the game, and not just in the Middle East.

Climate Catastrophe Comes for Europe Climate change is upon us. What that future will be is up to the current generation to figure out, and while there is no question that concerted action can make a difference, the clock is ticking. When next the bell tolls, it tolls for us all.

Rivers of Dust: Water and the Middle East The Middle East may be drying up, but so is California, much of the American Southwest, southern Africa, parts of Latin America, and virtually all of southern Europe. Since the crisis is global "beggar thy neighbor" strategies will eventually impoverish all of humanity. The solution lies with the only international organization on the planet, the United Nations.

The World Needs a Water Treaty There is a growing crisis in South Asia, where water-stressed mega-cities and intensive agriculture are quite literally drying the subcontinent up. By 2030, according to a recent report, half the population of India 700 million people will lack adequate drinking water. Currently, 25 percent of India's population is suffering from drought.

A Wounded Erdogan Could Be Dangerous AKP used Istanbul's budget as a piggy bank for programs that benefited members of Erdogan's family or generated kickbacks for the Party from construction firms and private contractors. Erdogan has already warned his opponents that they "won't even be able to pay the salaries of their employees." The man may be down but he is hardly beaten. There are turbulent times ahead for Turkey.

Turkey: Revenge of the Kurds After 18 years of unchallenged power and success, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suddenly finds himself in the middle of several domestic and foreign crises with no obvious way out. It is unfamiliar ground for a master politician who has moved nimbly from the margins of power to the undisputed leader of the largest economy in the Middle East.

Diego Garcia: "Unsinkable Carrier" Springs a Leak Most Americans have never heard of Diego Garcia for a good reason: no journalist has been allowed there for more than 30 years and the Pentagon keeps the base wrapped in a cocoon of national security. Indeed, the UK leased the base to the Americans in 1966 without informing either the British Parliament or the US Congress.

European Union Elections: A Crossroad Global migration is on the rise as climate change drowns coastlines and river deltas and drought drives people out of arid climates in the Middle East, Africa, South Asia and Latin America. By 2060, as many as 3 billion people could be affected. The Left and center-left has a responsibility to see immigrants for what they are: potential allies and the future.

Nuclear Powers Need to Disarm Before it's Too Late Over the years the Americans and the Russians have reduced the number of warheads in their arsenals, they -- along with China -- are currently in the midst of a major modernization of their weapon systems. Instead of a world without nuclear weapons, it is a world of nuclear apartheid, with the great powers making no move to downsize their conventional forces.

Only one thing certain in Spanish elections: the uncertainty of the outcome, From YouTubeVideos

Spanish Elections a Lesson for the Left In what seems a replay of recent German and Italian elections, an openly authoritarian and racist party made major electoral gains in Spain's most populous province, Andalusia, helping to dethrone the Socialist Party that had dominated the southern region for 36 years. It's as if the old Spanish dictator Francisco Franco had arisen from his tomb in the "Valley of the Fallen" and was again marching on Madrid.

Unwrapping Armageddon: The Erosion of Nuclear Arms Control The INF Treaty came about because of strong opposition and huge demonstrations in Europe and the United States. That kind of pressure, coupled with a pledge by countries not to deploy such weapons, will be required again, lest the entire tapestry of agreements that kept the horror of nuclear war at bay vanish.

Afghanistan: Peace at hand? The news that the Americans recently held face-to-face talks with the Taliban suggests that longest war in US history may have reached a turning point, although the road to such a peace is long, rocky and plagued with as many improvised explosive devices as the highway from Kandahar to Kabul.

NATO: Time to Re-Examine an Alliance While Moscow is depicted as an aggressive adversary, NATO surrounds Russia on three sides, has deployed anti-missile systems in Poland, Romania, Spain, Turkey, and the Black Sea, and has a 12 to 1 advantage in military spending. With opposing forces now toe-to-toe, it would not take much to set off a chain reaction that could end in a nuclear exchange.

Trump and the Big, Bad Bugs Animals jammed into rarely cleaned cages and pens are the perfect Petri dish for generating drug resistant germs. According to the Environmental Working Group, nearly 80 percent of U.S. supermarket meat is infected with antibiotic resistant germs. Studies of meats in the U.S. show that up to 70 percent are laced with germs immune to antibiotics.

The Spanish Labyrinth Newly minted Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez must recognize that the Catalan issue is political, not legal, and that force is not an option. As Napoleon Bonaparte's Foreign Minister Talleyrand once remarked, "You can do anything you like with bayonets, except sit on them," summing up the truism that repression does not work in the long run.

Iran And Sanctions: A Prelude To War? Several developments have come together to suggest that the rationale for using sanctions to force a re-negotiation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is cover for an eventual military assault by the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia aimed at regime change in Teheran. What a war will almost certainly do is re-ignite Iran's push to build a nuclear weapon.

Turkey's President: Short Term Victory, Long Term Trouble There is an outside chance that Erdogan could win the presidency but lose his majority in Parliament. If the opposition does win, it has pledged to dump the new presidential system and return power to parliament. The election will be held essentially under martial law, and Erdogan has loaded all the dice, marked every card, and rigged every roulette wheel.

The Great Game Comes to Syria The appointment of National Security Adviser John Bolton, who openly calls for regime change in Iran, has to have sent a chill down the spines of the Iranians. What Tehran needs most of all is allies who will shield it from the enmity of the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia. In this regard, Turkey and Russia could be helpful.

Why Europe's Center-Left Keeps Losing Elections If the center-left is to make a comeback, it will have to re-discover its roots and lure voters away from xenophobia and narrow nationalism with a program that improves peoples' lives and begins the difficult task of facing up to what capitalism has wrought on the planet.
