Lam In Limbo As Tensions Between Hong Kong Protesters, Beijing Intensify

On Sunday, more than 2 million Hong Kongers, more than one-quarter of the city-state's population, took to the streets in what were the biggest marches in Hong Kong since the dawn of Chinese rule. Even after City Executive Carrie Lam 'indefinitely' dropped the hated extradition bill that had catalyzed the protest movement on Saturday, a march planned for Sunday went ahead anyway. It was the biggest march yet, a sign that a popular mandate to oust Lam and secure the release of all of those arrested during the marches - the movement's two biggest remaining demands - was strong.

"The Countdown Has Begun:" Iran Warns It Will Breach Uranium Stockpile Limits In 10 Days

Iran certainly isn't planning on backing down in the face of Washington's accusations about the country's role in last week's tanker bombings, and as a result, the possibility of a boots-on-the-ground military conflict in the Islamic Republic cannot yet be ruled out. Making an already tense situation infinitely more precarious, Iran on Monday reminded the world that it's preparing to violate the terms of the Iran deal during the next ten days.

Buried In Broad Daylight - The ‘Free Press’ And The Leaked OPCW Report On Douma

A defining feature of the propaganda system is that facts supporting the agenda of Western power are pushed to the forefront of the 'mainstream' media, while inconvenient facts are buried. A prime example is the shameful media silence in response to a devastating document leaked from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), discussed in a recent media alert.

Saudi Arabia blames Iran for oil tanker attacks, but doesn’t want ‘regional war’

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has accused Iran of masterminding the attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman this week. One of the explosions rocked a Japanese-owned ship just as PM Abe held talks in Tehran. The Iranian government “did not respect the presence of the Japanese Prime Minister as a guest, as Tehran instead attacked the two tankers, one of which was heading for Japan,” bin Salman told Saudi-owned paper Ashraq Al-Awsat on Sunday. The Crown Prince further accused Tehran of “targeting the security and stability of the region,” but stressed that Riyadh does not want the current tensions to spiral into “a regional war.”

Internet blackouts: The rise of government-imposed shutdowns

For almost a week, Sudan has been completely cut off from the internet. It started slowly, with a series of intermittent disruptions during months of protests against former President Omar al-Bashir's 30-year rule. Al-Bashir was toppled in April, but the protests did not end and demonstrators began demanding that the Transitional Military Council (TMC) call new elections. On June 3, as security forces violently dispersed a protest camp in the capital, Khartoum, all mobile access to the internet was cut.

Mike Pompeo Has a Hard Time Kicking Old Habits

“I was the CIA director. We lied, We Cheated, We Stole”.  – Mike Pompeo. It appears that Mike Pompeo has a hard time kicking his old habits.  He appears to be as smug about lying as a CIA operative as he is as Secretary of State.  Categorically blaming the Iranians for the recent oil attack tankers has left allies scratching their heads; and perhaps leaving foes thinking: “Thank God my enemy is so stupid”!
