Elections have consequences: Greece can now veto any new sanctions on Russia

President Barack Obama in one of his narcissistic and arrogant tantrums once told the Republican congress, "Elections have consequences."  And in a more practical and real sense, that became true the moment that an anti-EU party successfully took over the leadership in Greece, and no longer allowed tools from the banking establishment to dictate their future.

BRICS nations to work on creating new ratings agency outside U.S. control

Ratings agencies like S&P and Moody's have great power to determine the value and risk of nearly all securitized assets in the global financial sector, and their role in the 2008 credit crisis and sub-prime collapse is well documented.  But recently, their application has gone far beyond the scope of simply scrutinizing and rating financial instruments and it appears now that pressures from the U.S. gov ...

Geo-political battle lines continue to be drawn with new Russian-Iranian military agreement

During the Cold War, the world was pretty much separated into two spheres of alliances.  In the West there was NATO and SEATO, which encompassed Democratically led nations in partnership with the Untied States.  And in the East were the countries tied to the Warsaw Pact under the authority of Moscow and the former Soviet Union. But since the end of the Cold War in the early 90's, alliances have been primari ...
