Interstitium: the new human organ you didn’t know you had

Researchers at the University School of Medicine in New York identified a previously unknown component of the human body that they classify as a new organ. The interstitium, as it is called, is a network of cavities filled with liquid that lies under the skin and covers many other organs. Until now scientists believed there was an “interstitial space” between the cells, but not that it was an organ. ...Read full article...

BREAKING NEWS: Another Overnight Missile Attack on Syrian Military Bases

An earlier article said US-led overnight Friday aggression on Syrian targets wasn’t the end of it. It was likely prelude for further aggression to come, maybe all-out war ahead, risking confrontation between Russia and Washington. For America, Israel and their imperial allies, any pretext for escalating conflict will do or none at all. War against the Syrian Arab Republic continues raging with no end of it in sight. Syria ...Read full article...

Did Trump Lie about bombing of Chemical Weapons facilities?

Where are there thousands of dead people from the chemical gas released by Washington’s attack? Are the hospitals of the country over-filed with the injured and dying? More importantly, where is the so-called evidence to justify the bombings? Why hasn~t transparent Trump come forward with it? Because there is no evidence that Assad had nothing to do with it. Would it be possible that Trump bombed rebel facilities instead of ...Read full article...

The Day After Tomorrow is Today

You may all remember that 2004 science fiction film, where a climatologist is ignored by world government officials when warning them that a gigantic superstorm was about to freeze up the northern hemisphere, which meant a catastrophic natural disaster. According to the film, the superstorm would come about due to the interruption in the normal circulation of ocean currents. Warm and cold water masses that moved north and south ...Read full article...

É o fim do Direito Internacional?

A guerra contra o Médio-Oriente Alargado deveria terminar com a retirada das tropas dos EUA nos seis meses próximos. Nada prova, no entanto, que a paz se instalará em cada um dos países atacados. Assistimos atualmente ao que parece ser uma tentativa de acabar, a propósito, com o Direito Internacional. Consolidaria isso uma divisão do mundo em duas partes ou daria origem a um conflito generalizado ? Desejam os ...Read full article...

The Coming Firestorm in Syria

The die is cast on Syria. A US-led attack on the country almost surely is coming. The only unknowns are when and its severity. Will it be similar to last April’s Shayrat airbase attack or is striking multiple Syrian military and perhaps other targets this time coming? The latter option seems most likely. Short of full-scale “shock and awe” war like Iraq 2003 and Libya 2011, nothing strategic can ...Read full article...

¿Se acabó el Derecho Internacional?

La guerra contra el Medio Oriente ampliado debería terminarse con la retirada de las fuerzas estadounidenses en los 6 próximos meses. Pero nada demuestra que la paz volverá a instalarse en cada uno de los países agredidos. Hoy estamos viendo lo que parece ser un intento de acabar con el derecho internacional. ¿Consolidará esto una división del mundo en dos bandos o será el inicio de un conflicto generalizado? ¿Están tratando las potencias occidentales de acabar con las ...Read full article...

Russia schedules Naval Exercises Off the Syrian Coast to Preempt U.S. Attack

The Russian based media Pravda reported on April 11, that “Russian warships kicked off naval exercises near the coast of Syria”. According to the Moscow Times, “The Russian Navy is reportedly scheduled to launch firing drills off the coast of Syria on April 11 (Wednesday) amid fears of an imminent U.S. airstrike against Syria following a suspected chemical attack”. We are at a Dangerous crossroads: According to the report (which has not ...Read full article...

The End of International Law?

The war against the Greater Middle East should end with the withdrawal of US troops within the next six months. And yet nothing proves that peace will settle in each of the countries that were invaded. Today we are witnessing what seems to be a tentative to get rid of international law. Will this consolidate a division of the world into two parts, or will it open to a ...Read full article...

We are in the Last Days before all Hell breaks loose

Last days of Pompey?  I was just there last week and I saw the future, not the past. To anyone watching the UN Security Council “debate” last night it is crystal clear we are in the last days before all hell breaks out. So, here we are at Judgment Day, and there surely will not be one soul out on Pennsylvania Avenue to raise an anti-war placard. The tattered ...Read full article...

Many Food Products contaminated with Acrylamide

A few days ago a Los Angeles Superior Court judge, Elihu Berle, put acrylamide on the mainstream map by forcing California coffee shops – including Starbucks – to add a health warning about the carcinogenic risks of this chemical present in the coffee. Next Wednesday, April 11, comes into force a regulation of the European Commission that requires implementing a series of measures to limit as much as possible ...Read full article...

Hacia la postguerra del Gran Medio Oriente

Todas las guerras terminan con vencedores y vencidos. Los 17 años que acabamos de vivir en el «Medio Oriente ampliado», o Gran Medio Oriente, no serán la excepción de esa regla . Saddam Hussein y Muammar el-Kadhafi fueron eliminados, Siria está ganando, pero no hay otro perdedor que el pueblo árabe. Lo más que puede hacerse es fingir creer que el problema es sólo en Siria. Y que, en Siria, es sólo en la Ghouta. Y que, ...Read full article...

Facebook spies on your Messenger conversations

Some of the most disgraceful crimes in history continue to be perpetrated by out-of-control forces. Although spying on someone’s private conversations may not be classified as a crime against humanity, but the reason why Facebook continues to violate even its own privacy laws seems to be justified with the premise that it carries out the spying to “protect” children. What a noble lie! Who would be against protecting the ...Read full article...

Towards a Post-War in the Greater Middle East

All wars end with winners and losers. The seventeen years we have just lived through in the Greater Middle East is no exception. Yet, while Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi have been eliminated and Syria is winning, the only real losers are the Arab people. At the most, one can pretend to believe that the problem concerns only Syria. And that in Syria, it is circumscribed to Ghouta. And ...Read full article...

Where’s the Outrage and Accountability for Israeli Mass Murder?

Two Fridays in Gaza and days in between left 32 Palestinians dead so far, over 6,000 others injured, scores seriously, a third or more from live fire, including from exploding bullets causing serious internal wounds – no Israeli soldiers or civilians harmed. IDF viciousness was premeditated, the way its soldiers always operate against Palestinians and targeted countries. It’s no surprise in one of the world’s most militarized nations, a ...Read full article...
