Hostile Takeover

By Stephen Lendman

I'd like to begin my commentary on David Sirota's important new book Hostile Takeover with my strong endorsement of his fine work.

Agenda Against Iran

Beating About The Bush? Not With Hersh
By Robert Fisk

Sy Hersh is an ornery, cussed sort of guy, not one to suffer fools gladly. As the man who broke the My Lai story and the atrocities at Abu Ghraib, I reckon he has a right to be ornery from time to time – and cussed

Open any Western newspaper and you are struck by the abundant use of the word “diplomacy”. It is the second most used word after “democracy”.
