NATO to Plan More War in Chicago

This week's NATO summit meeting, in Chicago, "will be full of aggressive activities: plans for wars around the world, new decisions about how the U.S will maintain hegemony in the oil-rich Middle East and ," said Chris Gavreau, spokesperson for UNAC, the United National Anti-War Coalition.

Wreak Havoc at Banks

JP Morgan Chase, the nation's largest bank, gambled away billions because neither party made any real "effort to crack down on derivatives in general," said Doug Henwood, editor of Left Business Observer. "It's remarkable how little has changed since the financial crisis" of 2008, said Henwood. "This is precisely the sort of thing that was supposed to be stopped."

Obama's Allegiances

President Obama's "policies are similar to the Bush administration but, in my opinion, are far worse, because he presented himself in 2008 as a change agent," said Abayomi Azikewe, editor of the Pan African Newswire. Today, people see Obama as he really is, "a representative of the banks, the transnational corporations and the Pentagon – pure and simple." Azikewe spoke with host Solomon Commissiong on Your World , broadcast on WPWC Radio, in Washington, DC.
