Spain has Fallen – not like Greece – but Fallen all the Same :  Information Clearing House - ICH

The
Spanish elections – 20 December – were a deceit and
a farce. Nobody seems to notice. At least not those
concerned, the ignorant electorate, those who will
suffer again possibly under a new neoliberal Rajoy
leadership.

UKRAINE On the 19th Day of Christmas...   :  Information Clearing House - ICH

With all the action in Syria, the Ukraine is no
longer a subject for discussion in the West. In
Russia, where the Ukraine is still a major problem
looming on the horizon, and where some 1.5 million
Ukrainian refugees are settling in, with no
intentions of going back to what's left of the
Ukraine, it is still actively discussed. But for the
US, and for the EU, it is now yet another major
foreign policy embarrassment, and the less said
about it the better.



In the meantime, the Ukraine is in full-blown
collapse—all five glorious stages of it—setting the
stage for a Ukrainian Nightmare Before Christmas, or
shortly after.
