Autor: Mario Guerreiro

Tudo começou no Egito em que multidões nas praças, em protestos pacíficos, exigiam a renúncia do ditador Moubarak, há mais de vinte anos no poder, e a imediata abertura de eleições. (mais…)

La secretaria de Estado de EE.UU., Hillary Clinton, se mostró especialmente “entristecida” por la muerte de dos periodistas en Libia y pidió la liberación inmediata de todos estadounidenses detenidos “injustamente” en ese país. (mais…)

Brain Wars – How the Military Is Failing Its Wounded

Critical Shortage of Army Neurologists for U.S. Troops in Iraq

and Afghanistan

by T. Christian Miller, ProPublica, and Daniel Zwerdling, NPR

.The Army is facing a “critical” shortage of neurologists, partly because of recent policy changes designed to improve diagnosis and treatment of mild traumatic brain injuries, according to a new military medical memorandum.

The policies, issued last June, require soldiers who have suffered three or more mild traumatic brain injuries in a year to receive a comprehensive evaluation by a neurologist or similarly qualified doctor. The military also set up a clinic in Afghanistan last year specifically to treat traumatic brain injury and mandated rest periods for soldiers exposed to blasts. (mais…)

GADAFI, THE CRAZY DOG

 

CACHORRO LOUCO (THE CRAZY DOG)

Moammar Gaddafi of Libya

Talvez um dos poucos líderes mundiais tão amados  e odiados tanto pela direita como pela esquerda, seja Muammar Gadafi.

Esse amor e esse ódio serviram para mantê-lo nestes quarenta anos no topo do poder líbio, comandando acima de tudo, uma grande parcela do petróleo mundial, que lhe dava o respeito e a admiração, ainda que forçadas de todo o mundo ocidental, pois o  ditador líbio é fruto dos interesses das companhias petrolíferas, que graças aos lobbies, que envolvem propinas e corrupção, sempre tiveram nele o grande aliado na exploração, no amplo sentido do termo, do subsolo africano.

Western military intervention in Libya—which began with air strikes over the weekend—has been described so far as analliance led by the United States. It’s a label the Obama administration appears anxious to hand off, as it faces criticism at home for launching the attack without congressional authorization and seeks to disprove fears that the intervention will become a protracted war without a clear exit plan.

On April 9, 2003, Lieutenant Colonel Bryan McCoy, commander of the 3rd Battalion 4th Marines, awoke at a military base captured from the Iraqis a few miles from the center of Baghdad, which was still held by the enemy. It had been 20 days since the invasion of Iraq began, and McCoy had some personal chores to take care of—washing his socks, for one. Afterward, he walked over to a group of marines under his command who were defacing a mural of Saddam Hussein. As I watched, he picked up a sledgehammer and struck a few blows himself. The men cheered. Then he began preparing for the serious business of the day: leading the battalion into the heart of the city. He expected a house-to-house brawl that would last several days.
