Hey folks, how are you this day?

International Politics

Overall

– There are serious consequences of America’s militarized strategy that affect numerous people across the Pacific

– John Pilger: “In Ukraine, the US is dragging us towards war with Russia”

– Victoria Nuland, a U.S. envoy, states “terror” should be stopped in eastern Ukraine; Are you sure it’s not western Ukraine?

– The P5+1 and Iran are currently working on a long-term international deal

– Hillary Clinton: It would be better to get no deal with Iran than to get a “bad deal” with them (She said this to the American Jewish Committee); Bad deal? What’s a bad deal?

Middle East

– Gareth Porter discusses how the U.S. is fabricating narratives on Iran and its intentions

– Iran wants to improve its diplomatic ties with Saudi Arabia through a meeting between envoys 

Africa

– Military operations were launched to find kidnapped girls in Nigeria as vigilantes in the country kill Boko Haram

– Meanwhile, Nigerian soldiers opened fire at their commander, who escaped without an injury, they blamed him for seeing their fellow soldiers killed by Boko Haram.
