An historic betrayal has consumed Greece. Having set aside the mandate of the Greek electorate, the Syriza government has willfully ignored last week’s landslide “No” vote and secretly agreed a raft of repressive, impoverishing measures in return for a “bailout” that means sinister foreign control and a warning to the world.

Economic Warfare

Image by Truthout.org via Flickr

The havoc hitting Iran’s national finances should leave no-one under any illusions. The country is facing economic warfare from the US and its European allies. In financial terms, it is equivalent to attacking the country with a weapon of mass destruction.

The disruption and hardship being inflicted on Iranian citizens is criminal and unspeakably callous. But let’s make no mistake: the suffering of Iranian people is the direct result of conscious decisions being made in Washington, London and Brussels. Continue reading

Jun 1, 2012 by

As if the United States hasn’t already been involved in enough wars, the US government has admitted its role in launching a secret cyber attack against Iran. Since the first day Obama took office, the plot named “Olympic Games” was used to launch online attacks with cyberweapons such as the Stuxnet computer worm, which disrupted certain aspects of Iran’s nuclear program. Aaron Swartz, founder and executive director of Demand Progress, joins us with more on the online war.

The US-led economic war on Iran has been dangerously ratcheted up with the launching of a powerful new computer virus targeting the Islamic Republic’s nuclear research facilities and other vital commercial sectors, including the oil and banking industries.

Previously, the Iranian economy and scientific research centres have been hacked with the computer malware or virus known as Stuxnet. That sabotage of Iranian facilities is widely believed to have been the work of American and Israeli military agencies.

Welcome to Capital Account. European banks are under pressure to raise capital and the Euro could collapse triggering panic in financial markets and another great depression. These are all warnings coming out of the international monetary fund. Central banks haven’t been waiting — they appear to be moving away from the euro by buying more gold. We’ll talk about it. And while we are on the topic of the IMF as policymakers descend upon Washington for the Spring meeting — it seems all about raising money to boost the IMF’s fire power aimed at putting out Europe’s debt crisis.
