Why No Vetoed Resolutions on Civilian Killings in Gaza?

Why No Vetoed Resolutions on Civilian Killings in Gaza?

The question now looming large over the United Nations is why China and Russia aren’t initiating a new draft resolution condemning the aerial bombardments of civilians in Gaza, demanding a no-fly zone and accusing Israelis of war crimes. Such a resolution is certain to be vetoed by one, or all three, of the Western powers in the UNSC, as China and Russia did on the resolutions against Syria. But this time around, it will be the Western powers on the defensive, trying to protect the interests of a country accused of civilian killings and war crimes.

Chris Hedges: Israel Is Captive to Its ‘Destructive Process’

Chris Hedges: Israel Is Captive to Its ‘Destructive Process’

Raul Hilberg in his monumental work “The Destruction of the European Jews” chronicled a process of repression that at first was “relatively mild” but led, step by step, to the Holocaust. It started with legal discrimination and ended with mass murder. “The destructive process was a development that was begun with caution and ended without restraint,” Hilberg wrote. The Palestinians over the past few decades have endured a similar “destructive process.” They have gradually been stripped of basic civil liberties, robbed of assets including much of their land and often their homes, have suffered from mounting restrictions on their physical movements, been blocked from trading and business, especially the selling of produce, and found themselves increasingly impoverished and finally trapped behind walls and security fences erected around Gaza and the West Bank.

Summer Signs Confirmed by World Events

As Israel prepares to invade Gaza yet again, while Kiev shells villages and towns as it prepares to besiege Eastern Ukraine’s two largest cities. The Gaza invasion is clearly an effort to torpedo the Palestinian unity government, while the Ukraine offensive is just as clearly a US-led attempt to draw Russia into a shooting war with NATO. Both illustrate the increasingly fascistic nature of globalization. The question is whether Europe, which has known the horrors of fascism up close, will continue to go along with Washington’s and Tel Aviv’s plans.

Far from fading away, thanks to digital interconnectedness and economic development, witch hunting has become a growing, global problem.

Electrifying: Giant Futuristic ‘Tesla Tower’ In Abandoned Woods Near Moscow (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

In a forest near Moscow, a Soviet-era “lightning machine” has a capacity arguably equal to Russia’s entire electricity output. The facility is absolutely unique; nothing like it exists anywhere in the world, primarily because of its outstanding charge capacity. At its peak operating capacity the giant Marx generator, when lightning is discharged onto an isolated platform, has power equal to all power generation facilities in Russia – including thermoelectric, hydroelectric, nuclear, solar, and wind power stations combined. But only for about 100 microseconds,

Which Country Does The Most Good For The World?

Which Country Does The Most Good For The World?

It’s an unexpected side effect of globalization: problems that once would have stayed local—say, a bank lending out too much money—now have consequences worldwide. But still, countries operate independently, as if alone on the planet. Policy advisor Simon Anholt has dreamed up an unusual scale: the Good Country Index. The idea of the Good Country Index is pretty simple: to measure what each country on Earth contributes to the common good of humanity, and what it takes away. Using a wide range of data from the U.N. and other international organizations, a balance sheet is created for each country to show at a glance whether it’s a net creditor to mankind, a burden on the planet, or something in between.
