  • Ahmadinejad: US must Cease Militarily Targetting Iran before Direct Negotiations
    • Norbert Salamon 02/11/2013 at 12:57 pm

      I believe tha Prof. Cole is mistaken in asserting that the Iraqnian requisite for US-Iran negotiation is maximal. I believe from reading and listening to various politicians from Iran, Respect, Friendship etc is the prerequisite for negotiation, else IRan will continue to advance [as it did technologically] in spite of the USA and satrap embagoes.
      When one considers that China, India Russia Brazil and most of the NAM states back IRan, then the USA's 5% and EU's 6 % [plus minor % of Japan, Canada, S. Korea et al]of population is greatly out numbered.
      It is true that Europe suffers due to the sanctions, but so does the USA:
      1., Oil prices are higher by approx 20% due to Iran sanctions according to numerous statmentsin USA/UK media.
      2.,USA companes are excluded form exploration in Iran, a loss to USA's Oil Service Companies - the most advanced in the world.
      3., Thes actions are contrary to USA Constitution [as per adevise and consent of USA Senate to sapplicable International LAw]: as Mrs Clinton admitted the sanctions are intentionally designed to hurt civilians by instituting a shortage of mediciens, food supplyes etc.
      4., Therefore the SA is declining in ionternational standiong, to the detriment of the nation.

  • Good News for Planet: Wind Power tax Credits Renewed in 'Fiscal Cliff' Deal
    • While it is true that since 1990 the Co2 emission has decreased due to recession since 2007, the other boig part is that the USa has exported almost all the dirty manufacturing industries to offshore, thus eliminating some emission. Further the use of Oil has decresed by 2 million barrels per day since the recession strted.

      While I admire Prof Cole's clarity in the analysis, I think that Mr. Obama partially, and Mrs. Clinton, fully underestimated their action's raminification in the internationala community - and I am not talking about the USA's satraps. Methinks the result will be resemblence of the Bush years. Soon even USA citizens will not ask WHY THEY HATE US, since it appears that the USA is cabaple of exporting only havoc: Wall Street's mess, chaos -by countering international law, armaments, especially to Israel to kill civilians, and war on Muslim countries.
