The Brexit referendum: A turning point in European politics The Brexit referendum is a product of the deepening antagonisms produced by the drive of the rival imperialist powers to dominate the world's markets and strategic resources.

The New York Times pronounces on destabilization of the Middle East In alliance with a new imperialist partner, Saudi Arabia has pledged a massive $3 billion to pay for weapons being supplied by the government of French President Francois Hollande to the Lebanese army in order to target Hezbollah, an ally of Iran and Syria. What is taking place in the Middle East is naked imperialist power politics, yesterday's enemies can become today's allies and vice-versa.

Washington ships arms to Al Qaeda-linked forces in Syria The United States is to officially begin arms shipments to Syria, after months of doing so through third parties, such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The Obama administration cited unsubstantiated US and French claims that pro-Assad forces have used chemical weapons such as sarin on 10 separate occasions to claim that a "red line" has been crossed justifying an open policy of arming the opposition.

US threatens Iran, Hezbollah for backing Syria There is no popular support in the US for war against Syria, and a great deal to lose if things go wrong for the ruling class.

UK Prime Minister Cameron stokes fires of war against North Korea Once again the UK is providing the lies necessary to justify military aggression by US imperialism, as Washington pursues plans to secure its global dominance against its rivals. The parallels with the claims made by the Labour government of Tony Blair in the run-up to the Iraq war in 2003 are all too obvious. Cameron's filthy rhetoric should be treated with the contempt it deserves.

Imperialist lawlessness and the witch-hunt against Julian Assange Assange has said, with every justification, that he fears for his life.

Obama endorses Netanyahu as "man of peace" Just hours ahead of Obama's meeting with Netanyahu, during a visit to Finland, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned that "if Iranians gain nuclear capability, we will see a crazy nuclear arms race in the whole Middle East with consequences I don't even want to think about."
