 Nepal Death Toll Could Reach 10,000: Millions Starving, Entire Mountain Villages Flattened

Death toll in the Nepal earthquake could reach 10,000 as rescue teams have started reaching isolated mountain villages. Entire mountain villages have been razed to the ground and millions of people are starving as they are cut off from all food supply and communication. Wet weather and cold are making life intolerable. An estimated 8 million people have been affected. Moreover, in the earthquake, 61 people died in India, and China reported 25 people died in Tibet

The 7.8 Earthquake In Nepal And The Magnitude Of Impoverishment
By Li Onesto

There was little that could be done to stop the earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25, 2015. But the fact that there is such tremendous death, destruction and suffering as a result of this natural disaster IS something due to human/societal factors—namely the system of capitalism/imperialism which subjects countries like Nepal to such impoverishment

Ukraine: Truth Has Been Murdered
By Paul Craig Roberts

The Western media is complicit in many war crimes covered up with lies, but the false story that the Western media has woven of Ukraine is the most audacious collection of lies yet. Truly, truth in the Western world has been murdered. There is no respect for truth in any Western capital. The coup in Ukraine is Washington's effort to thrust a dagger into Russia's heart. The recklessness of such a criminal act has been covered up by constructing a false reality of a people's revolution against a corrupt and oppressive government. The world should be stunned that "bringing democracy" has become Washington's cover for resurrecting a Nazi state

Mother Earth Is Weeping For Her Children:
The US Military Must Stop Environmental Ecocide
By Joy First

It is a very serious problem that our calls for peace and justice are going unheeded by government officials. Even though it seems like we are not being listened to, it is very important to continue to act in resistance. I know that even when we feel like we are ineffective, acting in resistance is my only choice to do what I can to make a difference in the lives of my grandchildren and the children of the world. Though it is difficult to know whether we are being effective, I believe that we all must do everything we can to continue our work for peace and justice. That is our only hope

Agribusiness And The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse
By Colin Todhunter

Like all empires, Washington has developed a system to hitch a free ride courtesy of the rest of the world funding its generally high standard of living, militarism, financial bubbles, speculations and corporate takeovers

Assassination As Policy In Washington And How It Failed, 1990-2015
By Andrew Cockburn

Whatever the euphemism -- the Israelis prefer to call it "focused prevention" -- assassination has clearly been Washington's favored strategy in the twenty-first century. Methods of implementation, including drones, cruise missiles, and Special Operations forces hunter-killer teams, may vary, but the core notion that the path to success lies in directly attacking and taking out your enemy's leadership has become deeply embedded. As then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton put it in 2010, "We believe that the use of intelligence-driven, precision-targeted operations against high-value insurgents and their networks is a key component" of U.S. strategy

21st Century Challenges To American Democracy: Part III
By Jon Kofas

American democracy's challenge is to serve the public interest not the interests of the 1% richest Americans to the detriment of the middle class and workers. It is interesting that the media, politicians, and even academics use the term "special interests" so that they avoid any class-based language and so that in the so-called "special interests" they can include trade unions and organizations such as the AARP, women's and others. Defining corporate and finance capital as "special interests", while defining the "public interest" as the sum total of citizens and the collective goods of the working class and middle class would be a good first step toward meeting some of democracy's challenges in the 21st century. Engaging in deliberate illusion-making by trying to remain politically, ideologically and culturally acceptable to apologists of the existing system and refusing to recognize the class struggle at the core American democracy's simply perpetuat

Genocidal Indonesia Executing Drug Convicts
By Andre Vltchek

Indonesia, the country which did not earnestly punish one single top military brass for the genocides in East Timor and not one single person for horrendous and ongoing genocide in Papua, is now ready to execute another nine people for drug trafficking. In January 2015 it already slayed six drug convicts including five foreigners, sparking international indignation

Big Wine Fails To Dry Farm During California's Relentless Drought
By Shepherd Bliss

An increasing number of North Coast residents and businesses are calling for a moratorium on new vineyards and wineries and expansions of existing vineyards and wineries, especially as event centers. It is unfair to mandate people and other businesses to conserve water and allow Big Ag and Big Wine to consume as much as they want, for free. A four-county group has met in Lake and Sonoma Counties and will meet again in May in Napa County to discuss dealing with the excesses of the wine industry

Rise Above Sectarianism And Serve Humanity
By Kashoo Tawseef

How can you kill someone just because he doesn't agree with you or he/she doesn't practices same faith as your- that's just insane. Let us remind ourselves that Islam is humanity and humanity is Islam

India's fight against TB has certainly come a long way ahead, but the journey through the proverbial 'last miles' are going to be defining one - as the programme confronts and hopefully overcomes formidable-looking challenges. Ending TB is possible
