Iran Nuclear Talks: Mixed Reports

Iran Nuclear Talks: Mixed Reports by Stephen Lendman Indications are sticking points remain, including Washington upping the bar multiple times to include new issues - violating the letter and spirit of Lausanne preliminary agreement terms, the way US negotiators and top officials do business.

Entrapping Greece in Debt

Entrapping Greece in Debt by Stephen Lendman My book "Banker Occupation: Waging Financial War on Humanity" discusses entrapping Greece in unrepayable debt.  It's a good time to review some of its content after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' public betrayal followed by overwhelming rubber-stamp parliamentary approval (250 - 32).
