“I sometimes get the feeling that somewhere across that huge puddle, in America, people sit in a lab and conduct experiments, as if with rats, without actually understanding the consequences of what they are doing.” – Vladimir Putin, 4 March 2014 Vladimir Putin (en.wikipedia.org) Diana Johnstone March 21, 2014 Paris.

U.S. government hypocrisy toward the Ukraine crisis has been breathtaking, as has the U.S. press corps’ stubborn refusal to see the hypocrisy (i.e. the Iraq War and many other U.S. interventions). William Blum looks at the reasons behind the double standards. By William Blum ConsortiumNews.com March 8, 2014 When it gets complicated and confusing, when you’re […]
