In an article published May 15, 2013, American historical social scientist Immanuel Wallerstein wrote, "Nothing illustrates more the limitations of Western power than the internal controversy its elites are having in public about what the United States in particular and western European states should be doing about the civil war in Syria." Those limitations are palpable in both language and ...
Israel's Operation Cast Lead was described by a UN fact finding mission as "a deliberately disproportionate attack designed to punish, humiliate and terrorise a civilian population." The 2008-09 assault claimed the lives of 1400 Palestinians and thrust the crisis in Gaza into the centre of the debate about the Israel/Palestine conflict. The crippling siege continues to block ...
Early in an opinion issued recently by a unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Judge A. Raymond Randolph says: "Although the parties have not raised it, one issue needs to be resolved before we turn to the merits of the case."

BREATHE a sigh of relief that Thursday’s Interstate 5 bridge collapse is an economic disaster, not a human tragedy. Mercifully, no one died. Immediately, some politicians began to suggest the collapse of the 165-foot span over the Skagit River was a case study on the cost of deferred infrastructure maintenance. But that narrative does not seem to fit the facts. Instead, the collapse, as ...
The United States risks losing the advantage of surprise if individual drone strikes become entangled in slow-motion bureaucracy back home. We fear U.S. warriors shrinking from what in effect are battlefield decisions because they have one eye on Congress, or judges, or some other overseer who is not their commander in chief. We don’t want drone operators hoping their targeted terrorist ...

The Indian Caribbean Museum, described as "a national treasure, a window to the past, and an opportunity to see history come alive", has been cited by a National Geographic publication that showcases 500 of the world's most powerful and spiritual places and guides travellers who wish to visit them.
"This is a fitting recognition in just seven years of our existence, especially as we celebrate the 168th Indian Arrival Day May 30," Sansbhan Jokhoo, the curator of the museum that serves as a link between indentured Indian labourers and the present, told IANS.
"The Indian Caribbean Museum has international prominence and recognition as the only one of its kind in the world. Not even India has one. And before the inauguration of the Kolkata memorial last year planners from India came to visit our facility," Jokhoo said.
