ALEX LANTIER—EU support for the coup in Venezuela marks a new exposure of the EU’s pretensions to be the gentler, more democratic alternative to US imperialism. It is ultimately no less ruthless and willing to resort to war than Washington in pursuit of its predatory interests. As Washington escalates its confrontation with Russia and China, EU countries are stepping up social austerity and moving to pour hundreds of billions of euros into their own armies to join in the imperialist scramble to plunder profits and markets around the world. In this scramble, Washington and the European powers are ultimately rivals—a rivalry that in the previous century twice plunged humanity into world war.

EVA BARTLETT—Why haven’t the media written about the panel, or as per the corporate media norm, issued yet more smears against panellists?
They haven’t because they are cornered, and while they can always try their standard juvenile character smears and libel, they cannot refute the facts, the countless testimonies which corroborate yet still more testimonies taken by independent journalists over the years.

BILL VAN AUKEN—The Democrats’ opposition to Trump is driven by US imperialism’s global interests and has nothing to do with the conditions confronting the working class, the overwhelming majority of the US population. Trump’s announcement of the Syrian troop withdrawal provoked an extraordinary backlash from the leadership of both his own Republican Party and the Democrats, as well as from the major media and state-connected Washington think tanks.

RAMIN MAZAHERI—Because the Western 1%, and the Mainstream Media they own, wants to obscure this lens – how the defense of Khashoggi fits in with the inevitable capitalist pressure from international high finance to get control over Saudi oil – they thus want us to believe that Khashoggi was a “reformer”. But the West doesn’t care at all about democratically empowering the 99% in Saudi Arabia, of course; and the mere step up from absolute to constitutional monarchy is no “reform” in the 21st century – modern political thought declares that this is a bogus reform.

RUSSELL BENTLEY—If you want to know what’s in store for the USA, look at Ukraine. A failed state. Undrinkable water. No heat for millions. Ecological and economic rape six ways from Sunday. Utterly corrupt oligarchs and politicians who loot the nation and the people of every possible resource, who ruin the country and its future, then skedaddle with their billions as Yatsenyuk did, as Poroshenko will, as Tymoshenko will. (As Trump and Clinton will.) And do you really think there will be any difference when ukrops vote between Poroshenko and Tymoshenko? Just as much difference as between Trump and those who came before or whoever comes after.
