The Source of Obama's Foreign Policies

A global shift in US strategy is currently underway, with America transitioning from the ‘world policeman’ to the Lead From Behind mastermind. This fundamental shift essentially entails the US moving from a majority forward-operating military to a defensive stay-behind force. Part of this transformation is the reduction of the conventional military and its replacement with special forces and intelligence recruits. Private military companies (PMCs) are also occupying a higher role in the US’ grand strategy. Of course, it is not to say that the US no longer has the capability or will to forward advance – not at all – but that the evolving US strategy prefers more indirect and nefarious approaches towards projecting power besides massive invasions and bombing runs.

Coming and Going of American Supremacy

The international political system changes. Sometimes it changes in accord with hegemonic design. The dynamic history of America’s global development project, and its necessary relationship with sweeping international change, has marked changing global order since the end of World War II. Today, however, there exists the increased reach of multinational corporations, and many transnational actors; they also alter the international political landscape.

Bob Herbert Tells Bill Moyers How Corporations and the Big Banks Have Hijacked the Country

Three years ago, reporter and former New York Times columnist Bob Herbert took to the road and traveled across the United States to gather research for his new book, Losing Our Way. In it, Herbert tells the stories of the brave, hard-working men and women he met who have been battered by the economic downturn. He found an America in which jobs have disappeared, infrastructure is falling apart and the “virtuous cycle” of well-paid workers spending their wages to power the economy has been broken by greed and the gap between the very rich and everyone else.

Mass protests slam US-EU trade deal as 'corporate power grab'

Tens of thousands of people are flooding the streets of cities all over Europe on Saturday in mass rallies against a controversial trade agreement between the US and the EU.

Talks on the pact, called the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), started last February and, having been mostly held behind closed doors, have raised widespread concerns in the European Union and beyond.

Social networks have been mobilized for a mass campaign that has been calling on Europeans and Americans to take action against “the biggest corporate power grab in a decade.”

Senator: Valerie Jarrett Was Involved in IRS Scandal

Republican Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts said Friday that he thinks the IRS targeting scandal was driven by Valerie Jarrett’s office in the White House, according to information that he saw that Democrats tried to “whitewash.”

Roberts told talk radio host Hugh Hewitt that he participated in a Senate Finance Committee investigation into the IRS scandal but “the effort was made by the majority, by the Democrats in the Congress, to simply end that investigation,” which he called a “whitewash.”

“I’m convinced that even Valerie Jarrett was involved,” Roberts said.

In the USA, our current system of government is not working; not unusual, since there has never been a lasting system of governance that has worked. All 'ocracies' and 'isms' currently in place will in time be thrown upon the refuse pile, to join a heap of other failed systems throughout history. Why can't we get it right? After thousands of years spent in refinement of dozens of systems, we are no closer to fair governance today than we were in the times of Sumeria...

Britain will run out of electricity unless it axes green target, warns ex-Minister

Former Environment Secretary Owen Paterson will this week deliver a stark warning – that Britain will 'run out of electricity' unless it abandons its main green energy target.

Mr Paterson, who was sacked from the Cabinet in this summer's reshuffle, will argue in a lecture that the target enshrined in the Climate Change Act – which binds the UK to reducing emissions by 80 per cent by 2050 – is unaffordable.

He will go on to say that the current energy policy is a 'slave to flawed climate action', and warn that 'in the short and medium term costs to consumers will rise dramatically'.

THE TRAGEDY OF MODERN DEMOCRACY

Once in power, modern democratic governments behave little differently than many authoritarian states do. Wars are started without consent and for purposes not in the public interest. Secret services carry out acts government would be ashamed to be seen openly doing. Armies for needless wars are conscripted or bribed into existence. Rights people regarded as basic may be suspended at any time. Injustices abound. Many “democratic” states practice illegal arrest, torture, assassination, and, above all, secrecy. Secrecy is so much a part of things today that when citizens do vote, they haven’t the least idea what they are voting for.

Is this Palestine’s last chance?

Ever since I began taking an interest in the Palestinians’ struggle – nearly ten years ago – those brave people have been cursed with rubbish leadership that has taken them steadily backwards instead of forwards… leadership that studiously ignores Palestine’s friends outside, fails its people inside and allows its territory and resources to dwindle.

The words “unity government” are on everyone’s lips. But is it really a good idea for Palestinians to unite under the likes of Abbas and his cockeyed, lazy PLO? Where are the alternative leaders hiding?

Please don’t tell us there aren’t any.

The Tragedy Of Modern Democracy

I read and heard about Hong Kong’s students putting themselves at risk demonstrating for democracy, and my first instinct was sympathy, sympathy for their passionate idealism, but sympathy in another sense too, for their sad illusions. I ask myself, and it is not a trivial question, what is it exactly that they believe they fight for? Democracy has become such a totemic word, we all are trained to revere it, unquestioningly, almost the way 16th century people were expected to behave in the presence of the Host during Communion. But just where in the West do we see countries who call themselves democracies behaving in democratic ways, indeed where do we see genuine democracies? And if it is such an important concept, why should that be?

What Obama’s Ukrainian Stooges Did

Here are highlights from a one-hour-and-thirty-seven-minute video documenting the ethnic cleansing or attempted genocide against the residents in southeast Ukraine, the Ukrainian area that had voted overwhelmingly for the man whom Obama overthrew on February 22nd. If the voters in that region were to stay in the then-existing territory of Ukraine, no nationwide Ukrainian vote (such as for Ukraine’s President) would favor the pro-U.S, anti-Russian, Government, that Obama had installed in February of this year. Even if new leaders would be elected, the government would then go back to being predominantly pro-Russian, as it had been under Yanukovych.

This is unusual notes Middle East geopolitical analyst Sharmine Narwani, because the West’s narrative for years has been to blame Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his allies for the proliferation of extremism in the region.

In her latest offering at RT’s Op-Edge, Ms. Narwani examines two secret US documents that tell a different story altogether.

Is Obama Being Threatened by US Hawks with ‘Security Risks’?

Is there something more significant to the rash of disclosures than mere incompetence among the president’s security detail? Are powerful people within the US government perhaps trying to send Obama a grim warning?

We should bear in mind that the US-led military intervention in Iraq and Syria and the growing confrontation with Russia over Ukraine seem to have entered a critical phase. The US military-industrial complex is pushing for a full-scale and relentless intervention in the Middle East, as well as ever-increasing tensions over Ukraine by goading the reactionary Kiev regime into antagonizing Russia.

With billions of dollars at stake from arms sales, business reports have noted that America’s top weapons companies, such as Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon, are soaring in their stock market values. Every fighter jet sortie in Iraq and Syria, every missile launched, every warship despatched to the Black Sea is rallying stupendous profits for these companies.

Obama Is Ending The War? US Bombings In Afghanistan At Two Year High

Just months away from what President Obama refers to as the "end of the U.S. combat mission" in Afghanistan, the U.S. military escalated its air bombardments on the country.

In response to an information request from the Boston Globe, Central Command revealed that during the month of August, the U.S. carried out 436 "weapons releases" on Afghanistan, referring to air strikes. This is the highest number of air strikes on Afghanistan since August 2012, according to U.S. Central Command's own data, pictured in the graph below.

The ISIS Threat: A Convenient Cover-Up

Ted Baumann
Activist Post

Last week, my colleague Jeff Opdyke reminded us that like all power-hungry states, the U.S. requires enemies like ISIS to keep the population distracted and mobilized against the wrong threats. As he rightly put it: “War … gives government the cover it needs to curtail liberties and freedoms here at home. It gives government reason to rally the citizenry as the long-term health of the nation deteriorates.”

Of course, war does more than just that. War generates massive flows of taxpayer money to the defense industrial sector, which passes some of it on to money-hungry politicians, who vote for more war and thus more money for defense. And so on...

ISIS, Turkey, and the Propaganda of Intervention

Eric Draitser
Activist Post

Today’s headlines are filled with reports of the imminent fall of the Syrian city of Kobani to forces of the Islamic State (ISIS). There are terrifying descriptions of an imminent massacre and the looming threat to Turkey as Islamic State forces move ever closer to the Turkish-Syrian border. Turkish President Erdogan waxes poetic about how he “warned the West” about the threat IS would pose and the dangers of inaction. It seems that everyone, including security experts and pundits, agree that the situation is critical and that US bombardment alone is powerless to protect the town or halt IS.

And yet, somehow lost amid the din of cries for intervention is the simple fact that it is US policy and the actions of the aforementioned Erdogan along with his counterparts in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, and Israel that created ISIS, nurtured it in its infancy, promoted its development, and unleashed it on Iraq and Syria...

How The 24/7 Ebola Scare Serves The Control System To Perfection

Are we all enjoying 2014? How about the two years prior to this? The political rollercoaster ride is enough to age anyone paying attention. We’ve all seen the globalist pull off one stunt after another in the last few years. Huge murder scenes without a single drop of blood, accused killers doped on TV so they can’t defend themselves, staged scenes, crisis actors, politicians blabbing off propaganda attempting to get hasty results from the ordered false flags. We’ve seen the new world order and the globalist politicians become exponentially bolder. Crimes and lies have been committed by our President, Attorney General and former Secretary of State without any of these globalist politicians batting an eye.

Eurosceptic UKIP wins first British parliament seat in landslide victory

The anti-EU UK Independence Party has secured its first seat in parliament, with former Tory MP Douglas Carswell taking the by-election seat of Clacton. He won 59.75 percent of the vote, far ahead of the ruling Tories with 24.64 percent.

Carswell's resounding victory reveals the threat UKIP poses to both Labour and the Conservatives in the upcoming general election. While UKIP is unlikely to win more than a dozen of the 650 seats on offer, the party’s increasing success threatens to rupture Britain’s center-right vote and erode the nation’s center-left vote making it more difficult for Labour or the Conservatives to win by a majority.

An Ebola Outbreak Would Be Advantageous For Globalists

It’s sad to say with such finality, but a universal fact of existence is that most of the people you meet in this life are fundamentally and functionally ignorant. Not necessarily stupid, but certainly ignorant. Ignorance comes not from a lack of intelligence, but from a denial of knowledge and truth.

That is to say, ignorance takes hold when people decide to act as though they know and understand a thing, even if they do not. Ignorance prevails when a society or nation chooses to value the appearance of expertise, to value the theater of overconfidence, and to cheer for the bluster of morons rather than admit that they have unanswered questions on subjects they do not yet grasp. For nothing is worse for the self absorbed than to acknowledge that they do not know.

For Obama, the 'Oil Weapon' Is an Essential Element of Foreign Policy

It was heinous. It was underhanded. It was beyond the bounds of international morality. It was an attack on the American way of life. It was what you might expect from unscrupulous Arabs. It was “the oil weapon” -- and back in 1973, it was directed at the United States. Skip ahead four decades and it’s smart, it’s effective, and it’s the American way. The Obama administration has appropriated it as a major tool of foreign policy, a new way to go to war with nations it considers hostile without relying on planes, missiles, and troops. It is, of course, that very same oil weapon.

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has sued the City of Phoenix Police Department over documents surrounding a 2013 gang-style assault on an apartment complex. Long-guns, a handgun, empty casings and buildings riddled with bullets were reported at the scene and two people were wounded in the incident.

When the incident occurred and during investigation afterward, police worked with federal law enforcement agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Department of Homeland Security, FBI and Drug Enforcement Agency in the case, raising suspicions the assault wasn't simply a typical, local gang shootout and prompted questions about the details of the people involved in the shooting in addition to where the weapons that were used came from. .

Right On Schedule: US Eyes 'Buffer Zone' In Syria 'Very Very Closely'

As if any reasonably informed observer would be surprised, the United States is now eying the possibility of implementing a buffer zone in Syria “very very closely.”

On Wednesday, October 8, 2014, U.S. Secretary of State and Skull and Bones member John Kerry stated that "The buffer zone is an idea that has been out there. It is worth examining, it's worth looking at very, very closely."

The statement, demonstrating that the United States is edging ever closer toward the goal it has desired since the beginning of the Syrian crisis – a buffer zone – comes only days after Turkey’s parliament passed a resolution to allow the Turkish military to enter the sovereign territory of Iraq and Syria under the pretext of battling Western-backed IS militants...

“Within the last two weeks several tips came into the Examiner indicating pending dangers to certain groups of citizens. These tips led to a source who, speaking on condition of anonymity, alleges that just after the election a major initiative will be launched against citizens whose values are diametrically opposite to that of Barack Obama and the current Washington elitist leadership in Congress.

Former SC GOP director: Ebola patients should be ‘put down immediately’

A prominent pro-life Republican in South Carolina has a plan to stop an Ebola outbreak in the United Nations.

Kill anyone who gets it.

His first tweet read: “People with Ebola in the US need to be humanely put down immediately.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pro-life, huh?

The current Ebola has a 56% lethality rate, so almost half the people Kincannon wants to kill would live if left alone.

Now I agree with those who say that everyone even suspected of having Ebola ought to be in BSL4 isolation, and yes, livestock such as pigs and dogs who are asymptomatic carriers should be put down, but Kincannon's suggestion seems a bit extreme to me!

$0 Silver: The Price Point of Liberty

A few years ago when silver was approaching the magical $50 resistance point, I wrote an article claiming $50 silver as the Price Point of Liberty. Today I realize there are two price points of Liberty, $50 and somewhere before the price of silver reaches $0.

Range limited, managed silver prices have been kept below $50 since 1980, regardless of inflation or the asymptotic decline in silver production and the drastic decline in production grams-per-ton and the exorbitant increase in national debt.

Now we see silver prices steadily declining while deficit spending and national debt are rising faster than any time in history (absolute dollars). Falling silver and gold prices in the face of astronomical, and rising debt, is a signal someone is attempting to violate reality...

Families have paid thousands of dollars in "protection money" to inmates, gangs and guards to keep their loved ones from being harmed or killed behind bars.

She took the threat seriously. Gang members had already beaten her son Dec. 1. "When somebody says he has your kid for ransom, you're going to pay," she said. "You're going to do everything you can to keep them alive."

Wolfgang W.

He presented to a packed room of 150-200 persons, of whom about half were law enforcement and EMS workers. Prior to the presentation, I had (David Weiss) interviewed a few random people on their thoughts on Sandy Hook and all of them said they only know the official story of a lone gunman killing 26 people and they were here to hear a presentation on what really happened. They had no idea what they were about to hear. Wolfgang presented for just over 2 hours followed up by a Q&A. There were intelligent questions asked in search of an alternative reason things might have happened but the answers brought every point back to the undeniable conclusion that the official story was just that, an impossible story.

While independent research shows that chlorpyrifos, a Dow Chemical insecticide used in Kaua‘i's GMO fields, can cause significant harm to children nearby, Dow is intent on convincing the EPA otherwise

The bodies and minds of children living on the Hawaiian island of Kaua‘i are being threatened by exposure to chlorpyrifos, a synthetic insecticide that is heavily sprayed on fields located near their homes and schools.

For decades, researchers have been publishing reports about children who died or were maimed after exposure to chlorpyrifos, either in the womb or after birth. While chlorpyrifos can no longer legally be used around the house or in the garden, it is still legal to use on the farm. But researchers are finding that children aren't safe when the insecticide is applied to nearby fields.

Winter blackouts could hit Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, regional grid operator warns

The Watchdog’s comments: What jurisdiction does the EPA have in shutting down power plants? Why have the states stood up to the EPA shutting down coal power plants.

Why has this President bypassed congress making laws by decree? in the Constitution for President Obama to declare war on the coal industry? Well there is no authority nor implied powers just because it is not in the Constitution to shut down power plants over a failed science that has been proven a fraud. There is no man-made global warming. It is all about control under UN agenda 21.

The Ebola Crisis Shows How Political Correctness Destroys Common Sense Solutions

What ever happened to common sense being part of the solution solving the most complex and complicated problems? Where did it go? Who took it away from our daily life or did we allow common sense to be stolen from our intellectual thought process? In the name of political correctness we not to offend people of other ethnic sensitivities. Since we have to walk on eggshells not hurt some ones feelings when there is a life and death scenario facing the nation. Now we can not use common sense because we might hurt some ones feeling of an ethnic group. As a result, our nation is a mess because Political Correctness has now replaced common sense.

Obama’s Fascist Healthcare Policies Are Endangering American Lives

The Ebola crisis has taken a decidedly bad turn yesterday as the true agenda of the government and its minions is being fully exposed. In the face of a deadly Ebola crisis that has the potential to sweep across the country with the vengeance of the 1918 Spanish Flu, one would think that the government watchdogs, the FDA, the CDC and the NIH would welcome help from the non-governmental affiliated healthcare industry in any way that they could get that help. Unfortunately, for the American public, these private corporations who operate with a government charter, are intimidating all but the aforementioned healthcare organizations to forsake any and all health claims as the FDA has completely banned the use of the word “Ebola”.

Should We Just Follow Orders? Rules of Engagement for Resisting the Police State

First Whitewater prosecutor says 'serious crimes' were uncovered in probe

The first federal prosecutor to probe the financial dealings of Bill and Hillary Clinton says he was poised to bring high-profile indictments against top Arkansas political and business figures — based in part on testimony from a chief witness against the then president — when he was abruptly replaced by a panel of federal judges, throwing his investigation into turmoil.

"I was angry, frustrated and above all disappointed that I was not going to be able to carry through and finish bringing the indictments," writes Robert Fiske, a former U.S. attorney who served as the original independent counsel in charge of the Whitewater investigation, in a forthcoming memoir, "Prosecutor Defender Counselor."

Fiske — ever the punctilious prosecutor — offers no judgments on the conduct of the Clintons, nor on that of the man who replaced him, Kenneth Starr.

This is, of course, where I was transformed from film maker to truth activist more than twenty years ago, with the cover-up of the murder of White House Deputy Council Vincent Foster!

“Voters will remember this”: Scott Walker administration says $7.25 an hour is a “living wage”

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has rejected a labor group’s effort to increase the state’s $7.25 an hour minimum wage.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that a coalition led by the group Wisconsin Jobs Now had seized on a provision in Wisconsin law which states that the minimum wage must be a “living wage” – defined as “reasonable comfort, reasonable physical well-being, decency and moral well-being.” However, the Journal-Sentinel noted, state law also allows governors to weigh such factors as the wage’s impact on the labor market. (Studies show that state increases in the minimum wage don’t harm job growth.)

Citing the living wage provision, the coalition last month urged the Walker administration’s labor department to raise the state’s minimum wage. In rebuffing the effort, the Walker administration isn’t just citing the other factors a governor is allowed to consider – it’s actually asserting that $7.25 an hour is a living wage.

South Africa spent billions on war toys it can't operate, maintain or afford.

South Africa acquired three submarines that spend most of the time on the 'hard' at Simon's Town and 50 BAE Hawk and BAE/Saab Gripen fighter aircraft for which the country had almost no pilots to fly them, mechanics to maintain them, or even the money to fuel them.

The arms deal was a confidence trick played at huge socio-economic cost to the people of South Africa, which has seriously undermined our still-fragile constitutional democracy," said Crawford-Browne.

The commission was appointed by President Jacob Zuma three years ago to investigate alleged corruption in the arms procurement deal in 1999.

CDC Chief Frieden on Ebola: Sealing Borders 'Increases People's Distrust of Government'

On his blog on the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), director Dr. Tom Frieden wrote that sealing borders, restricting travel to and from countries with widespread cases of Ebola, and otherwise isolating communities infected with the deadly disease “increases people’s distrust of government, making them less likely to co-operate to help stop the spread of Ebola.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Frieden has been given is marching orders to keep the borders open, keep Americans buying airline tickets, keep them going to the malls for the Christmas shopping season, make sure they show up to vote, and especially not let them forget that what they are SUPPOSED to be afraid of are those eeeeeeeevil mooslims that need a good bombing.

Ebola: Why don't we just ban flights from Africa?

The World Health Organization has said repeatedly it does not recommend travel bans on the countries affected by the Ebola outbreakl because that would leave the countries cut off from the rest of the world, “resulting in detrimental economic consequences, and hinder relief and response efforts, risking further international spread.” http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/statements/2014/ebola-2nd-ihr-meet...

The key problem in travel bans, says the WHO and others, is that ending flights in and out of affected countries hinders these countries’ ability to receive the new supplies they so desperately need. As well, there are already not enough health workers on the ground in the affected countries. What foreign worker would willingly fly into the epidemic to offer assistance knowing they might not be allowed to fly back out?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is about protecting the profits of the airline corporations as we head into the holiday travel season. The fact is that the United States maintains a military airlift capability that is the rival of any commercial airline and can go wherever they need to go. The US Government is still treating Ebola as a political and economic issue. They want people to keep buying airline tickets. They want people to flood into the shopping malls for the Christmas shopping season. They want to make sure everyone shows up to vote next month. And mostly they don't want people to start thinking that maybe it is time to stop waging wars against countries on the other side of the globe and spend the taxpayer's money to protect the US from a major epidemic.

3.7 percent of voters in Burlington’s last big election not on rolls

Unpublished data from Burlington’s last big election reveals a significant number of votes were cast by individuals whose names were not on the statewide checklist.

In the 2012 presidential election, 17,383 votes were cast in Burlington, according to city-published data. According to data not published by the city, but made available to Vermont Watchdog, 639 of those votes, or 3.7 percent, came from election day walk-in voters whose names were not on the voter rolls and whose registration status was unknown.

Illegal aliens will help re-elect Democrat Kay Hagan in North Carolina

In 2013, the state of North Carolina began issuing driver's licenses to illegal aliens who qualified for President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program (better known as 'executive order amnesty'). Officials had originally planned to place an easily distinguishable pink stripe at the top of the license, along with the words "NO LAWFUL STATUS" in large, red letters, but under pressure from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), that plan was abandonned.

Now, the DACA license is indistinguishable from any other North Carolina license, save for the phrase "NO LAWFUL STATUS.
LEGAL PRESENCE EXPS: 00/00/0000," which appears in very tiny print and could easily missed by a poll worker.

EPA about to issue a dangerous approval that will put our farms, our food, and our environment at risk.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is about to issue a dangerous approval that will put our farms, our food, and our environment at risk.

EPA may announce approval of Dow Chemical’s new “Enlist Duo” herbicide within the next week. “Enlist Duo” is a mixture of glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup) and the even more toxic 2,4-D (part of the chemical mixture Agent Orange).

Please take just a few seconds to urge President Obama to stop this toxic herbicide and the genetically engineered crops that depend on it!

Enlist Duo is designed to be sprayed on Dow’s genetically engineered (GE) corn, soybeans and cotton, killing the weeds but not the crops. Monsanto’s Roundup Ready crops are already failing because they created superweeds. Now imagine Roundup on overdrive. Scientists, lawmakers and millions of citizens know that more chemicals are not the answer to the superweed problem.

Washington Is Destroying The World — Paul Craig Roberts

The arrogant fools in Washington, wallowing in their hubris as “the indispensable nation,” have provoked Moscow to the point that Russia now has more deployed nuclear weapons than the US. As a result of Washington breaking its word and putting ABM missile bases on Russia’s border, Russia has developed supersonic ICBMs that can rapidly change their trajectory and cannot be shot down by any missile defense system. Of course, the US corporations making billions of dollars selling Washington a useless ABM system will deny this.

Moreover, those countries, such as Poland, whose governments are sufficiently stupid to accept US ABM bases, would be obliterated before the bases could function. The utter stupidity of Eastern Europe’s bought-and-paid-for governments to put trust in Washington is likely to be the main cause of WW III.

UK power station switched from coal to wood chips imported from USA by ship - costs a fortune & emits more pollution

.....Drax’s conversion to run half of its output on biomass means it will have to rely on wood from trees cut down in forests in America. The Sixties power station’s giant furnaces are being loaded with wood pellets carried 3,800 miles across the Atlantic in diesel-guzzling ships.

This grotesque environmental charade is being funded by government subsidies for the conversion of its coal-burning furnaces to biomass ones, which will put an estimated £23 on every family’s annual household energy bills for the next 13 years.

The vast generators of Drax are now living, humming, forest-destroying symbols of the shameful absurdity of European energy policies, and an extraordinary rebuke to this Coalition government, which claims, ever more ludicrously, to be saving the planet.

Eroding Principles of Human Rights

The traditional criterion for state legitimacy was very simple. If a state and its government could hold and govern territory, it was legitimate, at least in the eyes of other governments. The form of government and its behavior did not matter in this definition – Stalin’s USSR, Mussolini‘s Italy, Hitler’s Germany – these regimes held territory and ruled as surely as did the ones in Britain, France and the United States. And, in each others’ official eyes, one state was as legitimate as the next.
