ERNEST COREA, 05.12.2009 23:14

IDN-InDepth News Service

WASHINGTON DC (IDN) - The imminent dispatch of some 30,000 additional American troops to Afghanistan reflects the spirit of a campaign pledge by President Barack Obama. So why is he currently being assailed from both the left and the right?



VIEWPOINT: Monkey's Money

JULIO GODOY, 05.12.2009 23:12

IDN-InDepthNews Service

BERLIN (IDN) - When asked about the causes of financial crisis, the U.S. economist Charles Kindleberger used to reply with an expression he surely borrowed from zoology: “Monkey sees, monkey does.” There is nothing worse than seeing one’s neighbour becoming rich with uncanny wheelings and dealings at the financial markets, while giving the impression of doing nothing at all, he would add. One would naturally become envious and inclined to do as the new rich neighbour does.

La nueva tecnologia y la etica

G Jordan, 05.12.2009 20:45

La nueva tecnologia es un golpe a la etica de la humanidad. Nos trae divergencias y serias contradicciones de las que hay que hablar. Las nuevas tecnologias han invadido el espacio individual, cultural, politico y social, que se le puede pedir al mundo entonces a parte de la fatalidad?.



AMERICA LATINA: IMPERIALISMO, SOCIALISMO E INDIGENISMO

Tito Pulsinelli y Fernando Dorado, 05.12.2009 20:18

La lucha nacional por la Patria Grande indo-afro-euro-americana y la democracia participativa en ascenso, son el norte prevaleciente en esta etapa, que debe marcar el ocaso definitivo del partido imperial. Lo demás es forzar, dividir y debilitar.



Chomsky as Chávez’s Clown

Octavio Alberola, 05.12.2009 19:45

Chomsky &amp; Chávez * This article criticizes the weak and untenable posture the celebrated North American linguist and essayist holds in support of the current Venezuelan government.

La V Internacional ha nacido

Jacinto Benavente, 05.12.2009 18:09

Karl Marx La V Internacional ha nacido, pero los medios oficiales lo han silenciado e ignorado. No obstante pero el debate ya está en marcha y el proceso es imparable.Esto es una carta abierta a todos los medios. Se ruega leer y difundir ..... En los últimos días se ha producido un fenómeno histórico de esos que como mucho ocurren un par de veces a lo largo de un siglo, algo que si bien han recogido todas las agencias de información, así como los medios de comunicación alternativos donde se están creando debates cada vez más intensos, veo con asombro cómo la prensa oficial ni siquiera se ha hecho eco del asunto.

Fallschirmjäger-Brigade) von ihrem einjährigen Einsatz in Afghanistan zurückkehren, werden sie mehrere wichtige Neubauten auf ihre Heimatbasis vorfinden. Zwei neue Schulen, ein Kindergarten und eine erweiterte Tagesklinik sollen nach Angaben von Offiziellen der Basis im Herbst 2010 eröffnet werden. Es wird auch neue Trainingseinrichtungen im Fitnesscenter und ein renoviertes Schwimmbad geben.



cop15: be part of the party

party lion, 05.12.2009 16:26

Copenhagen – COP15 – World Climate Summit

On December 12th 2009 a mass demonstration against the COP15 Climate Summit will take place in Copenhagen. A mixture of very different people, groups and organizations are going to participate.
Unfortunately, the official route of the demonstration will directly lead out of the city centre into a barren part of town around the conference building, where it is going to end. It will also not be possible for us to change our mind on the way and turn around in order to bring our protest to public places, as after 30 minutes the demonstration will cross a draw-bridge, which can prevent us from returning to the inner city in the blink of an eye. This is why we think it is important to make up our minds beforehand, which way we want to go.

All information about travel, sleeping places, legal rights, actions, maps, food, medics, etc. can be found at www.climate-justice-action.org

The new dark ages and the point zero for humankind/BLIND POINT

G Jordan, 05.12.2009 07:18

War is good for few bad for most!! "If an actual empire will decline could start again the dark ages since another empire would rise but disoriented not planned or with a new orientation. So not to let this happen the actual empire must secure its domination of others. Any empire wanted that before but no once could because technology was not allowing that"

Pork for Dinner? In a Pig's Eye

A new study provides more insight into the intelligence of pigs—and raises questions about the intelligence and thoughtfulness of the humans who eat them.



Die Marionette Obama - Der machtloseste Mann der Welt

Tom Jordan, 04.12.2009 21:31

obama-macht-auf-ludwig-xvi Die israelische Lobby brauchte nicht sehr lange, bis sie Präsident Obama in Bezug auf seine Ablehnung weiterer illegaler Siedlungen auf okkupiertem palästinensischem Territorium zur Raison brachte. Obama musste entdecken, dass ein blosser amerikanischer Präsident machtlos ist, wenn er es mit der israelischen Lobby zu tun hat und dass die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika einfach keine Nahostpolitik betreiben dürfen, die der israelischen zuwiderläuft.



No 'crocodile tears' for tanking skins trade

By Paula Moore, 04.12.2009 20:16

In the exotic skins trade, alligators are commonly bludgeoned with hammers or metal bars; snakes are nailed to trees and skinned alive. These animals should not have to suffer just for humans' coldblooded vanity.

Geithner's Disgrace

Eliot Spitzer, 04.12.2009 17:41

"Geithner also claims that using the possibility of AIG's default as a negotiating opportunity would have cast doubt on the government's commitment to financial stability. What? Seeking to get other parties to share the burden demonstrates a lack of commitment to restoring financial stability and market-based realities? Pressuring Goldman and the other counterparties to offer concessions would have forced them to absorb the consequences of making suspect deals with an insurance company that was essentially a Ponzi scheme. Forcing them to give concessions would have been one small step toward ending the moral hazard the Fed had allowed to flourish for years."

EEUU teme al fracaso en Afganistán, como ocurrió en Vietnam

Análisis de Gareth Porter*, 04.12.2009 16:20

Un punto de inflexión similar al ocurrido hace 44 años en la Guerra de Vietnam (1965-1975) podría verse en las próximas semanas, cuando el presidente Barack Obama lidere una serie de reuniones para determinar si Estados Unidos intensificará o reducirá su presencia militar en Afganistán.



Teenage Troubles

Dr.A. Prabaharan, Research Director, Public Action, 04.12.2009 16:05

The biggest challenge today for parents is bringing up children. Apart from offering the children best possible education and nutrition, parents are facing difficulties in monitoring children's ethical behaviour. Apart from social ethics learnt from educational institutions children too learn from the family. Learning from the family has been labelled by sociologists like Talcott Parsons as "primary socialisation". But socialisation is under constant threat by technology and consumerism. Whatever ethical norms and behavioural patterns codified by parents and grandparents are on and off broken by the fast moving peers. Curbing this trouble will be the most crucial challenge in the coming days.




Bio Technology in India

Dr.A. Prabaharan, Research Director, Public Action, 04.12.2009 15:53

Everyone is eager to see technology solving all the problems faced by humanity. But the response to this mass expectation has been dismal. Bio technology which is touted as the one stop solution for all problems is yet to prove its credentials in a big way. Its achievements so far cannot be belittled. However there is a big mismatch between the hopes and reality.



18 More Months in Afghanistan

Dr.A. Prabaharan, Research Director, Public, 04.12.2009 15:37

Afghanistan has been America's curse for the past one decade. What was the last decade misdeeds of America has been paid back. In 80s America trained Afghans with weapons and sophisticated technology to crush Russian forces. The same training is giving nightmares to America for a decade.



Ending Terror Menace in Assam

Dr.A.Prabaharan, Research Director, Public, 04.12.2009 15:13

The north eastern state of Assam has been undergoing tremendous fissures due to the high voltage terrorist activities for many decades. The fragile political situation compounded by the natural calamities and underdevelopment has taken heavy toll on the state. Lack of strong political leadership combined with the total neglect of the centre has made the terrorist control impossible. After Naxal violence, North Eastern terror groups pose major challenge to the Indian security system.




RIL’s KGD6 adding contribution to India’s GDP

ranjit, 04.12.2009 12:08

The recent CSO estimate of India’s GDP for the second quarter of 2009-10 came like a whiff of fresh air amidst the gloomy scenario that was painted last week by the Dubai debt crisis. GDP growth has received its surprising but much-needed impetus from a booming mining and quarrying sector, which grew by 9.5% in the second quarter of 2009-10 as compared to 3.7% recorded during the second quarter in 2008-09. This has largely been attributed to a bolstering growth in output from Reliance Industries’ Krishna Godavari (KG) basin, whose gas output alone is expected to shore up India’s GDP by nearly 0.3% every year.

TURIN (IDN) - Excluding water problems as such from the negotiations of the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) has been a serious historic error on the scientific, politic and social level. The same holds true for the exclusion of biodiversity.

Berlin: Verteidigungsminister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg (CSU) hat seine Bewertung des Luftangriffs von Kundus um 180 Grad gedreht: In der Afghanistan-Debatte des Bundestages am Donnerstagabend nannte zu Guttenberg die Bombardierung der zwei von Taliban entführten Tanklastzüge "aus heutiger Sicht militärisch nicht angemessen". Bei dem Angriff am 4. September, den der deutsche Kommandeur Oberst Georg Klein angeordnet hatte, kamen nach offiziellen Angaben bis zu 142 Menschen ums Leben.

Elections in Honduras: Whitewashing a Path to a Past of Horrors

Lisa Sullivan, 03.12.2009 22:13

"Except that it’s probably the beginning of a story. One that we thought had been left to rest in Latin America years and years ago. One of fear and repression and deaths and disappearances. We know the litany all too well, and we remember the names of its thousands of victims each November. This year we had to add too many new names from Honduras. And, if our government chooses to recognize these elections, this massive whitewash, I fear that many more names will be read from the stage in front of Ft. Benning next year. And perhaps not just from Honduras."

Reporters suffer medical problems from 9/11 Exposure

Greg Bernardi, 03.12.2009 20:13

Television and news reporters who covered the 9/11 attacks are suffering significant medical consequences. The attacks of the World Trade Center on September 11th 2001 is a day that all of us would like to forget. However for the people that were at ground zero the effects of the attacks still live with them today. The media has covered the problems that the police officers, firefighters and other medical personal have had from the effects of the attacks, but there is little information about the other people that were running toward the towers as everyone else was running away from them hundreds of television and newspaper reporters that were covering the event.

BRD: Prozionistische LINKE?

Rüdiger Feldhoff, 03.12.2009 12:26

Richtungsstreit Es gibt sicher Klärungsbedarf in der LINKEN, auch über Hamburg hinaus. Schablonen wie z.B. die Logik der Antideutschen, die an Blindheit und Dummheit kaum zu überbieten sind, aber zu Waffen in hysterischen Auseinandersetzungen gegen Linke taugen, müssen nicht geduldet werden. Wer die Differenz zwischen Antisemitismus und Antizionismus nicht erkennen will, um im Weiteren alle Kritik an der Politik der israelischen Regierung mit der Etikettierung ‚antisemitisch' zu brandmarken und wer zudem im Namen einer Ideologie konkrete Menschenrechtsverletzungen leugnet, stellt sich selbst außerhalb des linken Lagers. Die Rechtfertigung grausamer, menschenverachtender Politik, sobald sie eine weshalb auch immer genehme Regierung betreibt, ist mit linker Politik nie zu vereinbaren - auch dann nicht, wenn sie zur Staatsdoktrin gehören und den Zugang zu Regierungsbeteiligungen eröffnen sollte. Die Feststellung, dass solche Positionen unvereinbar mit der Mitgliedschaft in der Linkspartei sind, ist überfällig.
