Scoop News or What Triggers New UN Probe into Dag Hammarskjöld’s Death?

On December 31, 2014, the UN General Assembly approved by consensus a Resolution that requested Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to appoint an independent Panel of Experts to examine the new information that has emerged on the tragic death of former UN chief Dag Hammarskjöld. ... Dag Hjalmar Agne Carl Hammarskjöldwas Secretary-General of the United Nations from 10 April 1953 until 18 September 1961. The plane carrying the UN Secretary General was shot down over Ndola, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia) on the night of 17-18 September 1961. 16 men on board perished. In April 1962 a UN investigative panel said it was impossible to make definitive conclusions though the report contained enough facts to establish the truth. For instance, some states, including the United States and Great Britain, did their best to conceal it. ... There was enough proof gathered in 1961-1962 to make the conclusion that the Secretary General was killed. ... The previous investigative commissions successively ignored or downplayed the testimonyprovided by inconvenient witnesses. ...  Great Britain has already tried to distort the facts related to the complicity of South African, UK and US special services in the assassination of Hammarskjöld.

Terrorism on Russia and Western Double Standards

Let’s charitably, for the moment, call it a Western-centric view. But one thing is unmistakable: the Western mainstream news media have a reprehensible double standard when it comes to their coverage of terrorist attacks against Russia compared with incidents in Western countries... The Sydney hostage taker was clearly motivated at a personal level by Islamist extremism... However, that did not stop Western news media and Western governments going into overdrive in their reaction to the siege. There were swift statements of «solidarity» and «prayers» from the US, British and Canadian governments sent to Australian premier Tony Abbott... Now contrast this media frenzy with the downbeat Western reaction to an actual terrorist attack less than two weeks ago in the Russian republic of Chechnya...

Where Europe Heads to? Harbingers of Political Storm

The daily routine has distracted the attention of ruling circles in Europe. They have failed to see in time the erosion of political order due to growing interference of EU supranational structures into the affairs of national states. The first warning was sounded during the May 2014 European Parliament election. Miscellaneous and sundry political parties united in their anti-EU drive received 30% of the votes. The Treaty of Lisbon was concluded in 2007 to replace the failed EU Constitutional Treaty. Since then it has become clear that the European integration is quite a reversible process...

Cameron the Euro Demagogue Creates Own Nightmare

November, the month associated with Halloween and spooky forces, appears to be presenting British Prime Minister David Cameron with a nightmare that could end up resulting in his head rolling as leader of the Conservative Party... With only months to go before the British General Election, Cameron’s coalition government is coming apart at the seams. At the root of Cameron’s fears is the meteoric rise of the far-right UK Independence Party. Fervently anti-immigration and anti-European Union, the UKIP is stealing voters away from the centre-right Conservatives...

Britain’s UKIP Win another Sign of EU Rebellion

The political earthquake rumbles on in Europe with the latest election victory of Britain’s far-right and fervently eurosceptic UK Independence Party. But it would be a mistake to paint the rise of Britain’s UKIP as just a rightwing nationalistic fashion. What the rise of the party portends is a widespread disaffection among the European citizenry towards the increasingly autocratic European Union. The EU is no longer seen as a progressive project promoting social development, but rather as a juggernaut to railroad through the elite interests of finance capital...

A Game of Scotch Solitaire for Europe (I)

«Whenever you fall, pick something up» advises a Scottish proverb. That’s a fairly good description of the current state of separatist movements in Europe. Various nooks and crannies of the Old World eagerly followed September’s referendum on self-determination in Scotland. Now many are trying to absorb and apply the methods used by Scottish separatists in order to advance their own interests - just like the Scots, themselves, post-referendum. The deepest reverberations from the events in Scotland were felt in Catalonia where new political skirmishes are rocking a nation already beset by a severe socio-economic crisis...

War and Economic Terrorism: Diverging Voices. David Cameron vs. Cristina Fernandez

Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s recent speech at the UN was a breath of fresh air. She spoke about economic terrorism and the reasons why some people turn to violence and told the audience how a bankrupt Argentina managed to turn away from hard-line economic neoliberal orthodoxy and stimulate growth. She also discussed the need for multilateral approaches to solving the world’s problems as well as the need to regulate ‘vulture funds’ that cripple sovereign states’ ability to function...

Scotland Kicks off Process of Europe’s Fragmentation

The Scottish referendum results show that something is rotten in the state of the United Kingdom. The event has given an impetus to the separatist aspirations in Ulster, Wales and the Island of Maine and even in the tin-rich Cornwall County believed to be the homeland of legendary king Arthur. The idea of getting more preferences from London without offering anything in return has become popular. The referendum has changed Scotland. The turnout was great with people of all walks of life and ages going to polls... In Europe separatists are gaining strength in Catalonia, Flandria (Belgium), Corsica (France), Northern Italy and Bavaria (Germany). They construe the referendum results as a victory of independent Scotland because it has asserted its right to self-determination...

The Anglos: Experts at Reneging on Sovereignty Promises

It should be apparent to every national sovereignty movement that finds itself up against well-entrenched moneyed interests, whether they sit in positions of power in London or Ottawa, that the promises made by the oligarchs of Anglo politico-economic power are never to be trusted. The London coalition government of the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, as well as the opposition Labor Party, are playing the same game with Scotland that the Ottawa government played with Quebec after the French-speaking province voted to reject independence in a 1980 referendum. English politicians... after promising increased powers to Scotland if the country voted to reject independence, are already backtracking on a promised «devolution max»...

Russian Oligarchs Enjoy Scot-Free Property Boom

While the British government-led No campaign is piling on scare claims to deter people voting Yes for independence in the historic Scottish referendum this week, one powerful London-based group stands to make handsome profits from the bitter contest – the Russian oligarchs. Multi-billionaire Russian and Ukrainian tycoons have gained notoriety in recent years for their splurging on up-market London property and other high-end real estate. Around 10 per cent of the London real estate aggregate market value is estimated to in the hands of mega-rich Russians. That’s a phenomenal growth in one the world’s most expensive cities. So prominent have Russian tycoons become in the British capital’s property sector that London is often now jokingly referred to as “Moscow on the Thames” or “Londongrad”.

Obama Prefers Arabia to Taj Mahal (II)

...The US desperately needs Saudi cooperation to address the crisis in Yemen... Today, however much he may respect Brzezinski as a guide and mentor on contemporary world politics («Grand Chessboard»), for Obama himself politically, the crisis in Yemen has the potential to snowball into a showdown with the Republican-dominated Congress and derail the US’ talks with Iran and wreck his entire Middle East agenda...
