Joe Emersberger: Latest UN report on Venezuela is not remotely honest (Part 2)

On September 15, UN investigators ( the so called “Mission”) published a 411 page report  about the human rights situation in Venezuela.[1]  Part 1 of my analysis of the report focused on its gross dishonesty about opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez.

Lawrence Wittner: Where Does the Democratic Party Stand on War, Peace, and International Relations?

After nearly four years of the Trump administration, U.S. voters have a pretty good idea of the policies that the President and his Republican allies champion when it comes to America’s dealings with other nations.  These policies include massive increases in military spending, lengthy wars abroad, threats of nuclear war, withdrawal from climate and nuclear Read more…

Antonio Carty: “Cheap, frequent COVID tests could be ‘akin to vaccine,” professor says

I’m surprised there is not more interest in a logical solution that definitely works and is ready to produce now, far easier than an unproven vaccine that may or may not work. Great if it did, but even if it eventually does it will take years to have an effect, that is waves and waves Read more…

Joe Emersberger: Latest UN report on Venezuela is not remotely honest (Part 1)—UPDATED 10/2/2020

UPDATE: I revised the second paragraph to be more fair to Bachelet whose position on US sanction has improved (most recently on September 25) – albeit from a terrible starting point).  *** On September 15, UN investigators published a 411 page report  about the human rights situation in Venezuela. They were not granted access to Read more…
