Because almost 50% of marriages in the US end in divorce, there is a good likelihood that the people reading these words have been affected by divorce, in some way.  The stats break down this way: 41% of first marriages end in divorce, 60% of second marriages end in divorce and 73% of third marriages end in divorce.  You are more likely to stay married if  you graduated from college, waited until you were at least 26 years old to marry and if you don’t smoke cigarettes.

The trust between President Obama and President Putin helped avert a U.S. war on Syria and got Iran to agree to limit its nuclear program, but the neocon-driven crisis in Ukraine has dashed hopes of building on that success for a more peaceful world, Obama needs to tell the neocons within his own administration — as well as John Kerry — to cease and desist with their inflammatory rhetoric and their demands for confrontation

Donetsk separatists are holding firm. Similar actions are occurring in other Eastern Ukraine cities that reject Kiev's putschist rule.

WaPo ludicrously calls NATO “a mutual defense organization.” It  was established for offense, not defense.  It’s a US-controlled killing machine. It’s expanding from an Atlantic to a global alliance. It aims to become a worldwide police force…”

Fascist thugs operate this way. Moscow denounced them. Slavyansk Mayor Vladimir Ponomaryov asked Russia to send peacekeepers for protection. More on this below.  A companion article said Kiev putschists pledged no Easter weekend Eastern Ukraine attacks. Straightaway they occurred.  Earlier deployed Right Sector neo-Nazis murdered 4 Slavyansk activists. They did so in cold blood. Continue reading »

Any (bureaucratic) doubts the New Cold War is on have been dispelled by the Group of Seven issuing a pompous, self-described Hague Declaration. Abandon all hope those who expected The Hague to become the seat of a tribunal judging the war crimes of the Cheney regime. 

The G-7 also cancelled its upcoming summer summit in Sochi as a means of “punishing” Moscow over Crimea. As if this carried any practical value.
