Weren't Putin's friends directly inspired by the American model?

The American Firm

Le Monde's editorial writer muses, "Oligarchy: a political regime in which sovereignty belongs to a small group of people, a restricted and privileged class. The word became fashionable again to define the Cossack capitalism that has plundered Russia for the last several years. But, in the end, weren't Vladimir Putin's friends directly inspired by the American model?"

One in Five Homeowners With Mortgages Underwater

Jonathan Stempel, Reuters: "Nearly one in five U.S. mortgage borrowers owe more to lenders than their homes are worth, and the rate may soon approach one in four as housing prices fall and the economy weakens, a report on Friday shows."

Who Watches While the US Invades, Again

Marcia Mitchell, Truthout: "Has anyone in Washington noticed? The new US raids into Pakistan and Syria are, as was the invasion of Iraq, in blatant violation of international law. But who's keeping track of this sort of thing? Certainly not senior US officials, who apparently have weighed the negative consequences of illegal military operations against their perceived benefits and opted in favor of the latter."


US Above The Law

What About Syria's and Pakistan's Sovereignty?

By Jacob G. Hornberger

If the Iraqi regime fails to sign an agreement by the December 31 deadline, that's not going to stop Bush from employing his army any way he wants. That's what he's doing with Syria and Pakistan, and that's what he will continue doing with Iraq. And it will all be legal, agreement or no agreement, because in Bush's mind whatever the U.S. government does is automatically legal.

Bush's Last Bullet: Why the US Attacked Syria

By Ramzy Baroud

The sovereignty of an independent, stable country that has carried out many constructive moves in recent months and weeks, which could have surely contributed to the stabilization of the Middle East, has been violated, its borders breached and its civilians killed. But when the country targeted is Syria, an Arab country, and the perpetrator is the US military, then, somehow things are not as appalling as they may seem.

Suspected US Missile Strikes Kill 27 in Pakistan

Ishtiaq Mashud, The Associated Press: "Intelligence officials say suspected US missiles have hit two houses in northwest Pakistan, killing 27 people. "

Reversal of Fortune

Joseph E. Stiglitz, Vanity Fair: "When the American economy enters a downturn, you often hear the experts debating whether it is likely to be V-shaped (short and sharp) or U-shaped (longer but milder). Today, the American economy may be entering a downturn that is best described as L-shaped. It is in a very low place indeed, and likely to remain there for some time to come."

Cell phone antenna installations to be controlled


Panama Star


Companies in need of antennas must share structures to hold them

The National Authority of Public Services ASEP (Autoridad de Servicios Publicos) has ordered all the companies that install towers to support antennas must share the structures with other enterprises to avoid the proliferation or duplication of installations in the country.

The authority warned that in cases where an agreement cannot be reached over the sharing of towers it will intervene at the request of any of the parties, to guarantee the rights of the communities that feel affected by these structures.
