Is it possible to find unbiased news about the war in Syria? This article looks at the difficulties involved in getting to the truth.Will Printing Money Do It?
As recession deepens in the euro zone and US growth remains tepid, western central bankers have in effect announced their intention to print money as long as it takes for growth to return. The critics of this Keynesian solution are seeing red. Republicans fret that jump-starting job creation, as US Fed chairman Ben Bernanke proposes to do, could improve the re-election prospects for Barack Obama. Head of German Bundesbank considers it a devilish policy that would burn Germany along with the euro zone in the fire of inflation…Who Really Won In The Afghan Conflict – The Poppy Growers?
When NATO and the US fully pull out of Afghanistan the flow of money into the local economies will surely dry up along with most of the service jobs. However, they do have one strong industry there – it’s a cash crop – growing poppies. This is unfortunate because that opium gets transported all over the world and ends up destroying other cultures and their populations. The US in effect is allowing this to happen even with the so-called “eradication program” and it is occurring right now in broad daylight in some regions of the country, even as we tell other nations that we don’t want them pounding indigenous leaf of Central and South America into white powder and shipping it here to the US, due to our war on drugs.Cuba Opens The Emigration Pressure Valve Again

That’s all well and good, and understood, however that was the deal, and these companies went in and invested billions of dollars to get everything up and running.One White Covers Three Uglies

If Commanders-in-Chief are supposed to be measured and to reserve judgment till facts are known, why did the administration send U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice out on five talk shows mere days after the attacks to insist that the protests were instigated by “The Innocence of Muslims,” a claim that contradicts the facts? The Benghazi cover-up may not be a case of “What did the president know and when did he know it?” but “What did the president’s staff say and when did they say it?”Traditional Newspapers Comparison With Internet News
